The people of this world cherish peace. They live in complacent harmony, only disturbed by Eggman's occasional fit of madness. On those occasions, they rely on their heroes. Otherwise, they see no need to prepare for violence.

Master Zik, Sonic the Hedgehog #42

Sonic's world[1] is the main setting of the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It refers to the planet that Sonic resides on in his dimension.


Much of Sonic's world remains unknown. However, it appears very similar to earth, posessing continents, green flora, blue oceans, islands, clouds, deserts, forests, and blue skies. Numerous villages and cities are known to be located there. While the planet is home to a number of natural and grounded environments, some territories on the planet exhibit strange or even surreal environments, such as rock formations shaped like intertwined corkscrew loops, forest areas with levitating blocks of land, and even floating islands.[2][3][1]

The planet itself is primarily inhabited by anthropomorphic animals, as well as other lifeforms, such as Chao and, more recently, Wisps.[2][4]
