Slinger is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing.

Concept and creation


Slinger is a light aqua-furred, anthropomorphic ocelot with pink eyes and a dark pink nose. He has triangular ears with tan canals, white fur on his muzzle, chest and tail tip. He also has turquoise markings on top of his head, above his eyes and his tail.

For attire, Slinger wears a large, gray and dark gray scarf and a similarily colored cap, wich he hangs on his right ear, as well as a dark gray belt with revolver scabbards. Like the other Diamond Cutters, he wears dark gray gloves with gray palms and gray boots with dark gray toes and soles. For missions he would wear a cyan, black and gray eyepiece with a white wire on his left eye.




Powers and abilities

Slinger appears to be a skilled marksman, dual-wielding wispon based revolvers and twirling them casually in the middle of battle, it is possible he's ambidextrous.





  • Slinger's species of an ocelot and his choice of weapon being Wispon revolvers brings about a similarity to Revolver Ocelot from the Metal Gear series.
