The Pocky is a creature that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. They are a race of rabbit animals that live in another dimension set in the recent past. The Pockies are constantly captured by Dr. Eggman, who uses them as batteries for his various Badniks.
The typical Pocky resembles a gray rotund domestic rabbit about half a meter tall, although their anatomy is remarkably humanoid. They have large heads with large black eyes, white furry muzzles, long ears with light peach inner ears, a long black nose each, and two small buck teeth. Other features include small torsos with white bellies, stubby hind legs, long three-toed feet with white tips, a white fluffy tail tassel each, and hair tufts on their foreheads. They also have small arms and white hands with five fingers.
Characteristics and culture
Peaceful, helpful and non-hostile, Pockies like to play with other animals and are very harmless. As such, they are constantly captured by Dr. Eggman and his minions. Also, although recognized as animal life, Pockies are remarkably intelligent and sociable.
Seasons of Chaos
One peaceful day on Angel Island, a local Pocky would play with other animals. Meanwhile, another Pocky found the blue Chaos Emerald, which it gladly handed over to Knuckles. Immediately after however, Metal Knuckles came and bowled over one of the Pockies while the other got frightened by the sight. During the subsequent battle between Knuckles and Metal Knuckles, one of the Pockies was put in danger when Metal Knuckles made a giant mushroom cave in above it. Fortunately, the Pocky was saved by Knuckles, although at the cost of allowing Metal Knuckles to snatch the Chaos Emerald in front of the other Pocky and escape with it.
- The Pockies are based on the species of the same name that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series.
