Sonic the Hedgehog of the Prime Zone, from Sonic the Hedgehog #257.

The Prime Zone is a location that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is the main zone or universe which Sonic Prime is from, and the home planet from which he hails.


The Prime Zone is just one of many incarnations of Sonic's world throughout the multiverse, but it and the Prime Zone are the core reality, of which all others are derivations of varying degree.[1][2] It is possible to reach alternate dimensions from the Prime Zone through various means, mainly those within the multiverse, and on incredibly rare occasions, worlds from other multiverses entirely.[3][4][5][6]

The Prime Zone, as well as the original multiverse, was heavily rewritten due to a drastic change in reality caused by Dr. Eggman's tampering with the Genesis Wave.[7]


  • Head witer Ian Flynn has stated that should the the Prime Zone be destroyed, no new Zones could come into existence.
