Spiral Hill Village[2] is a location that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is the home town of Tangle the Lemur.


Spiral Hill Village is a relatively small, but quaint town. It is quite densely built and possesses both stone houses and a distinctive tower. As it name implies, it is situated on top of a tall, spiraling hill with rather steep sides. The only way up there is along a stone staircase/bridge that leads up alongside the hill. Despite its small size though, the village includes several residential houses, shops, businesses, and institutions.[3][4]



After the Eggman War ended, Badniks would come to Spiral Hill Village and commit raids. Some of the residents would stand up to the invading Badniks however, including Tangle the Lemur.[4]

About a month after the end of the Eggman War, a horde consisting of various Badniks would attack Spiral Hill Village. Alongside the village's militia, Tangle the Lemur would help fight off the Badniks. By the time Sonic the Hedgehog arrived, Badniks were being deployed from a Buzz Bomber-based battleship. Sonic and Tangle soon after teamed up to destroy the Badniks. Amidst the fighting, Blaze the Cat arrived in Spiral Hill Village from her dimension, and teamed up with Sonic and Tangle. Together, the trio stopped the invasion of Spiral Hill Village by destroying the Buzz Bomber battleship from which the Badniks invading the village was deployed from. After introductions, explanations and conversations had been made, Blaze decided to help Spiral Hill Village by quelling the fires around the village and asked Tangle to show her where she was needed. Tangle quickly agreed to it. As she took her leave, Blaze left Sonic to find for the ringleader behind the Badnik attacks. Bidding farewell to the girls, Sonic took a very brief breather before leaving Spiral Hill Village.[4]

Bonds of Friendship

Eventually, Tangle met her new friend Whisper the Wolf when the latter paid a visit to Spiral Hill Village. While showing Whisper around the village, the two of them paid a visit to Jewel the Beetle in the Mineral Museum. Soon after though, Whisper noticed that something was afoot in the village. Immediately after, the museum was attacked by the Babylon Rogues, who robbed the museum of its exhibits before fleeting back to their airship. However, Tangle, Whisper and Jewel managed to retrieve the exhibits and clean up the museum.[3]

Tangle & Whisper

While goofing around in Spiral Hill Village, Tangle ended up ramming into Ron's chili dog stand in spite of Jewel's attempts to stop her. Afterward, Tangle and Jewel sat down with some chili dogs in the Mineral Museum and talked about Tangle's recent restless behavior and how to remedy it. Soon though, the duo heard a crash from outside. While Jewel found cover, worrying that the Babylon Rogues had returned. Tangle checked the situation out, only to find Whisper locked in combat with Sonic.[2]

Whisper tried several times to shoot the hedgehog but to no avail. Tangle soon stopped Sonic and the latter told her that Whisper was being mind controlled by Dr. Eggman through a chip in her mask scope. Tangle soon tackled Whisper and took off her mask scope, only for the wolf to reveal that she was not being mind controlled and the person she was shooting at was not actually Sonic. She showed Tangle a recording on her mask scope of "Sonic" revealing his true face and intentions. Later at the Mineral Museum, Whisper revealed that the person she was shooting at was actually a mercenary shapeshifter named Mimic, who had been impersonating Sonic and was potentially targeting Tangle among others. Tangle decided to join Whisper in her hunt for Mimic but was initially refused. After some convincing from her Wisps, Whisper reluctantly agreed to let Tangle come with her. Meanwhile, Mimic came by to the museum to leave a note for Whisper to tell her to come face him so that they could end their battle once and for all.[5]
