Template:Character Scratch is a character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. He was a member of the Super Special Sonic Search & Smash Squad, and currently a servant to business mogul Breezie.
Scratch is a chicken-based badnik, that bears a resemblance to the Clucker badnik. He is colored mostly gray (specifically on the neck, torso, arms, and legs), with dark-gray feather-motif at the top of his torso, and his legs and peck are colored yellow. He has a gray ear piece on the left side of his head, and he has a red wattle on the right side of his face. He has cartoon-stylized eyes.
Scratch's current design remains mostly the same, albeit with the addition of a black and white tuxedo, a red tie, and a gray ear piece with a miniature microphone attached to it on his left side of his face.
A long while before the Shattered World Crisis, Scratch and Grounder were assigned to "pretend" holding Breezie hostage. However, after Sonic the Hedgehog made mincemeat out of Coconuts and the Egg Antlion at the Underground Zone, Scratch, Grounder, and Breezie got in position with Sonic heading their way. Sonic quickly disposed of Scratch and Grounder, all while saving Breezie.
Sometime later, the Super Special Sonic Search & Smash Squad was abandoned by Dr. Eggman, leaving Scratch, Grounder, and Coconuts out in the cold. However, Breezie gave home to the three by making them her assistants at the Casino Park Zone.
Shattered World Crisis
During the Shattered World Crisis, Breezie established a tournament to give light to the broken world conflict, with the green Chaos Emerald as prize. However, an unknown source hacked into the registration roster, replacing someone else with someone new. Scratch believed it was necessary to contact Breezie and let her see who it was. Breezie, upon seeing the roster, was surprised and gleeful at the newcomer, telling Scratch and Grounder to keep "him" on the roster.
- Scratch's design in the Post-Super Genesis Wave timeline is a combination between his original design and the badnik it was based from, Clucker.
