The Rocky 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 seal animals that live in another dimension set in the recent past. The Rockies are constantly captured by Dr. Eggman, who uses them as batteries for his various Badniks.



The typical Rocky is a diminutive form of seal, being less than half a meter tall. They have gray-whitish skin/fur with rotund heads, two large black eyes, small triangular flippers, and a fin-like hind flipper each. They each also have a fussy white muzzle reminiscing a mustache like a walrus and a small black nose.

Characteristics and culture

Peaceful and non-hostile, Rockies like to play with other animals and are very harmless.[1] As such, they are constantly captured by Dr. Eggman and his minions.


Seasons of Chaos

One peaceful day on Angel Island, a local Rocky would play with other animals until Metal Knuckles came and bowled over them. During the subsequent battle between Knuckles and Metal Knuckles, the Rocky was put in danger when Metal Knuckles made a giant mushroom cave in above it. Fortunately, the Rocky was saved by Knuckles, although at the cost of allowing Metal Knuckles to escape.[1]

Some time after, a Rocky trapped inside a Badnik in Winter Caverns Zone was freed when Fang came by and destroyed the Badnik with his Popgun.[1]
