Sonic making light of the salamander to Tails, from Sonic the Hedgehog #68

The salamander is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. He is a giant amphibian that resides in an isolated, luminescent cave, seemingly serving as its protector.


The salamander is a male, non-anthropomorphic amphibian with a dark blue skin tone. Spread all across its body are bio-luminescent spots, matching with its environment, though it is unclear if he gained these markings from the environment. It has white eyes with no visible pupils. It is considerably large in size, with three toes per foot.


The Protector[]


The salamander proving to be a challenge for Sonic, from Sonic the Hedgehog #68.

Upon tracking down a Chaos Emerald within a cave, Sonic and Tails stumble upon the salamander in its territory. As the salamander is extremely protective of the secluded bio-luminescent cave, he attacks Sonic, ignoring Tails. Tails deduces that the salamander is only attacking Sonic because he's stepping on the cavern floor and concludes that as long as they don't harm the environment, the creature will stop attacking. Throwing Sonic his Yellow Tails Turbo, Tails' hypothesis is confirmed when Sonic hovers in the air using the Extreme Gear. Sonic reasons with the salamander, promising to leave the cave, to which the salamander complies. The two heroes leave the cave and the salamander alone, with Sonic further cementing the salamander's isolation by destroying the entrance they used to unintentionally invade the creature's territory.[1]

Powers and abilities[]

The salamander is a ferocious protector of its home, being extremely protective of the unique cave it resides at. Larger than most salamanders, it possesses a strong set of teeth and fast agility that gives Sonic a hard time. However, it only uses these abilities to defend its home and is not predatorial by nature.
