Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

Sticks in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric.

In Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, Sticks remained on Bygone Island while her team dealt with the uprising of Lyric the Last Ancient. Whenever meeting her team, she offered to trade their Shinies for Crowns. After Lyric was defeated, Sticks joined her team's celebration in the Village, where she got a robot part from Amy, which she planned to use as a spatula.

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal

Sticks caught in a rockslide.

In Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, Sticks was getting info from some rocks when she was caught in a rockslide. Fortunately, her friends rescued her just in time. Afterwards, she tried in vain to warn her friends that an army was coming. Sticks soon after met Tails who revealed that Amy had been kidnapped by an evil snake named Lyric for her knowledge on the Lost Crystal of Power. Surprisingly excited, Sticks left to save Amy and make snake boots out of Lyric for her. However, her attempt at an impulse rescue was halted by Sonic, who got her to work along with him and Tails.

Tracking Amy with her data logs while Sticks confused her team with her comprehension of teamwork, the trio found Knuckles, who was guarding Amy's path and had him to join them. The team soon after found a peculiar-acting Shadow the Hedgehog whom Sonic defeated. Sticks and co. then learned Shadow had been under Lyric's control through a Mind Control Device. Contacting them over a hologram, Lyric warned the group that he would soon wield the power of a god, once he was done with Amy. Sticks however, was not impressed.

With Sticks confident in Amy's clues, Team Sonic followed them to an ancient robot plant after Shadow left to get revenge on Lyric, where they met Metal Sonic. Sure Metal could take them to Lyric, they followed him to a volcano where they used an Ancient plane to reach Lyric's sky base. After freeing Amy, Sticks faced Lyric with her team, who trapped them all, except Sonic. As Sticks was freed by Sonic, Lyric tried destroying Team Sonic with a weapon, but Shadow arrived in time to stop the weapon and enable Sonic to drop Lyric from his airship. Believing Shadow did their work, Sticks had a heartfelt speech about how teamwork meant their efforts were wasted together to cheer Amy up. Sticks then had a hug with Amy and went home with her friends after Shadow left.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice

Sticks meets D-Fekt.

In Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, when Team Sonic discovered strange weather patterns that could destroy the world if left unchecked, Sticks was send by Tails to set monitors up around the Village. There, she met D-Fekt, an Eggman robot with nearly limitless magnetic powers who sought to keep Team Sonic from closing the emerging fissures. Sticks, however, found D-Fekt irresistibly cute, even as her team told her how dangerous he was.

Joining her friends, Sticks and her team began pursuing D-Fekt across the islands and sealing fissures with some new powers they had acquired to stabilize the weather, believing the robot and the fissures were connected. At the same time, Sticks had to deal with Sonic being taken away by Dr. Eggman repeatedly to race Eggman's Ragnium-powered EggBot Racers. In time, the team learned the fissures held Ragnium minerals which D-Fekt was covered in. Planning to follow D-Fekt to the fissures' source, Sticks was given a tracker by Tails which she convinced D-Fekt to wear since he liked her. The tracker lead Team Sonic to Ragna Rock where Eggman was mining for Ragnium and piping the mining by-products off to adjacent islands, thereby creating the fissures which were destroying the environment. Confronting Eggman in his mines, Sticks and Sonic ended up fighting D-Fekt to save Eggman when the robot went overboard trying to destroy Team Sonic to please his creator.

After defeating D-Fekt and saving Eggman, the doctor's Ragnium mine was left permanently destroyed. Feeling obligated to show gratitude though, Eggman gave D-Fekt to Team Sonic as thanks, whom Sticks took in as a pet after Tails reprogrammed him to be harmless, before heading home with her friends.

TV series

Past

Accordingly, Sticks ended up in the wilderness at an early age where she lived alone for a long time, the isolation leading to the development of her quirky personality.[9] Despite this, she retained a connection to her family, and was especially appalled by her ancestor Jebediah Badger's unforgivable acts in the past.[2][3]

Sticks eventually met Team Sonic who became her first real friends,[9] making her the fourth of her friends to meet Sonic.[10] Her desire to hang out with her new friends made Sticks visit the world outside her burrow.[9] Joining the team, Sticks would help save the local village from hundred of thousands of Eggman attacks.[11] On one of their adventures in particular, Sticks and her team got involved in a time-traveling escapade with Eggman.[12]

Season one

Sticks speculating Eggman's motives.

When visiting Tails' house, Sticks and her team saw that Sonic and Tails housed Dr. Eggman, Orbot and Cubot while their lair underwent repairs. Sticks, however, believed it was a plan to destroy them with an "Obliterator Bot." Her fears were soon confirmed after Eggman kept Sonic and Tails up all night and revealed to Team Sonic that he lied about his lair to exhaust Sonic and Tails before summoning Obliterator Bot. However, the robot misheard Eggman and attacked his lair instead. Agreeing to help Eggman, Sticks, Knuckles and Amy distracted Obliterator Bot while the rest reached its kill switches, though they could not save the lair.[13]

As Sticks, Sonic, Knuckles and Amy chilled on the beach, Tails showed them his universal translator UT. However, UT created tension between Sticks and the team by translating their private thoughts from the subtext of their speech. When Tails and UT returned the next day, UT "translated" their comments into insults. As everyone began to fight, Tails discovered this UT was a fake send by Eggman to tear them apart. While Tails left to save the real UT, Sticks and the rest stayed home, not thinking UT was worth it. Later, UT returned to give them message from Tails and translated it into a call to rescue him from Eggman. Attacking the lair, Sticks and her team freed Tails and beat Eggman's Mega. Still fed up with UT though, Sticks threw it into the sea against her team's wishes.[14]

After Team Sonic saved the Village from Fire Bot, Sticks showed a kitten ill treatment, making her team convince her to get a pet to learn compassion. While out pet shopping with Sonic, Sticks chose a disgusting robo-dog she named "Buster". While Sticks loved her new pet, Buster annoyed her friends. After Buster ruined the team's attempt to stop a robbery made by Orbot and Cubot, the group tried making Sticks give up Buster, but she refused. Eggman then came by with a gift for Buster, revealing he made him. However, Eggman's gift turned Buster into a larger robot that caught the team, except for Sticks. Sticks got Buster under control though and had him release her friends and get rid of Eggman. Knowing Buster was too dangerous however, a sad Sticks released him.[7]

Sticks at the Awardies.

While Team Sonic was in the Village as it was hit by meteors, Sticks used a defense system she had prepared to save the day. Later, she got a letter saying she had been nominated for an Awardy Award for saving the town. However, Sticks refused to go to the Awardy Awards in fear of embarrassing herself until Amy promised to teach her to be a lady. With Sonic as her escort, Sticks learned the basics, though she still struggled at the gala. There, she learned Eggman was also a nominee (by cheating). When Eggman lost the award to Leroy the Turtle and attacked with his robots, Sticks refused to fight since "a lady doesn't fight." When her friends got caught though, Sticks forewent her teaching, freed her team and drove Eggman off. Having saved the gala, Sticks took the Awardy Award from Leroy and promised Amy to teach her how to listen to one's instincts.[4]<

While Sticks helped Amy with the team's lunch, they met Eggman who wanted to hire Amy for a redecorating of his lair for Modern Lair Magazine. To Sticks' shock, Amy agreed, as she felt unappreciated by the others. Later, Team Sonic began to miss Amy, so they went to Eggman's lair to check on her. Eggman claimed Amy had chosen to stay, but the group did not believe it and broke into the lair where they freed Amy from prison, and Amy made peace with the others. Team Sonic then trashed Eggman's lair and his Badniks on their way out, costing Eggman his place in Modern Lair Magazine.[15]

At Sonic's Shack, Sticks found some Evil Cookies which turned her into a clone of Eggman when she ate one. Now evil, Sticks joined Tails, Knuckles and Amy (who had also eaten the Evil Cookies) under Eggman's tutelage to plot Sonic's demise. When Sonic came to save them, Sticks and the team cornered him, only to start fighting over the honor for capturing Sonic. During the fight, Sticks and the others were returned to normal by Sonic and Eggman (who Sonic turned good with an Evil Cookie with his DNA). Eggman now thought they would work together, but Team Sonic did not like the idea, so Sticks restored the doctor to normal.[16] Sticks later saw Sonic and Knuckles play coconut hurl with her team when Eggman dropped by to attack them with Cowbot, a robot that would create a massive explosion if destroyed. As such, Sticks and her team kept Cowbot down while Tails reprogrammed it, causing it to seek out and destroy Eggman, which forced Sonic to go warn the doctor.[17]

Sticks as a circus trapeze.

When Team Sonic fought Eggman's Octopus Bot, they got caught in a rockslide caused by Tails' faulty Unbolterizer. After beating Eggman, Sticks grew distrustful of Tails, driving him away until he could fix his Unbolterizer. No sooner, the crew met T.W. Barker and his traveling circus who needed stand-in performers. Volunteering to help, Team Sonic gave a great show the same evening. Afterwards, Barker told Sticks and her team his plan to keep them as his performers and imprisoned them. Fortunately, they were freed by Tails. After dealing with Barker, Sticks apologized to Tails for doubting him.[18]

While Sticks and Amy met Knuckles, who was upset over losing to Sonic, Sticks told him it was due to a shift in the luck balance of the universe and convinced him to inflict brutal misfortune on himself to burn through his bad luck. Tails and Amy tried convincing Sticks to talk some sense into Knuckles before he got hurt, but she had confidence in him. Sticks and her team later tried stopping Eggman as he invaded the island, but Knuckles' bad luck and Eggman's current good luck ruined their chances. To beat Eggman, they therefore let Knuckles temporarily join the doctor and have his bad luck cancel out Eggman's good luck, neutralizing them both. Soon after though, the team noticed Tails had gotten Knuckles' bad luck.[19]

While outside, Team Sonic located a meteor crashing nearby which briefly knocked Sonic and Eggman out when they tried taking it. As Sticks continued her lazy days with her team, Eggman came, claiming he was Sonic in Eggman's body. Sticks did not buy it and drove Eggman off, but he soon returned with his army. During the fight though, Sticks and the rest met Tails who verified that the meteor indeed had swapped Sonic and Eggman's minds, and they used the meteor to reverse the process.[20] After destroying Scorpion Bot, Team Sonic noticed Eggman was sinking into a slump which eventually made the doctor lose all motivation. As Sticks was driven nuts by Sonic who grew restless from the peace, Team Sonic tried to re-motivate Eggman by tricking Sonic to fight him. Though Sonic was not fooled as intended, their plan still got Sonic and Eggman to fight again.[21]

Sticks out picking beige berries.

As Sticks picked beige berries for a pie for the pie festival, Tails accidentally ruined the orchard with a machine he made to help her. Sticks thus had Tails replant the orchard while she and the team went to the festival, which Sticks won. Upon returning, Tails had left to join the Lightning Bolt Society and the seeds that had been planted had turned into mutant flora. While Sticks and Knuckles held the plants off, the others got Tails back, who destroyed the plants with his machine. While Sticks made up with Tails however, she still had him replant the orchard.[22] When Sticks later helped beat Eggman and his Moth Bot, Eggman sued Sonic for breaking his neck unprovoked. During the trial, Sticks was interrogated by Eggman's lawyer, T.W. Barker, and accidently made the case worse for Sonic until Amy stopped the trial.[23]

When pulling Tails away from his plane, Team Sonic found Eggman selling tomato sauce which they thought was poisoned. However, the sauce proved clean, so Sticks and her crew let Eggman keep selling it. Weeks later, while Sticks had trouble with her electronics, Team Sonic saw Eggman reveal on TV that his sauce cans had turned their electronics into robots to conquer the island. After fighting a small army, Sticks and her team took the fight to Eggman while Tails tried to reclaim his weaponized plane, but got overrun by Eggman's robots. Fortunately, Tails dropped by, snatched Eggman's controller and shut the robots down, just as Eggman ruined his plan by revealing it on TV.[24]

As Team Sonic got attacked by Crab Bots before a game, they had Sonic stay put (Sticks in particular) due to the loud noise he had begun making when running. Eggman then appeared, claiming he did not start the attack, to help Sonic. Though Sticks insisted Eggman was untrustworthy, Sonic took his offer and soon returned with new shoes that muted his noise. No sooner, Eggman attacked with his Giant Robot. Sticks tried fighting it, but the robot only grew stronger the more Sonic ran with his new shoes Despite Sticks' skepticism, Sonic saved the team by overloading the robot with excessive running.[25] During a movie night, Sticks and her friends were attacked by Eggman's Egg Tank. In their battle, a time loop was accidently created, making the day keep repeating itself. Aware of the events, Eggman eventually sought Team Sonic's help to stop the time loop. When Knuckles refused to seal the loop with a container since he had a dentist appointment the next day, Sticks pulled out his bad tooth which made Knuckles break the loop.[26]

Sticks being forced to sing to "Rocky."

When a Granifer Giganticus attacked the Village, Sticks and Amy met up with Sonic, Tails and Knuckles (who awoke it). Realizing the rock monster was just trying to fall sleep, Sticks tried singing him a lullaby when it rejected Amy's. Despite her horrible, screechy singing, it made the rock monster sleepy. As Team Sonic relocated the rock monster when he blocked a road, Eggman appeared to try and capture him. While her team beat Eggman, Sticks was kidnapped by the rock monster who had her sing for him until she was saved by her team. They then lured the rock monster to Eggman's lair where they had him fall asleep to a recording of Sticks' singing.[27] When Team Sonic fought Eggman again, Sticks saw Sonic and Eggman get trapped in Buddy Buddy Temple. As Knuckles and Amy argued over who should lead Sonic's rescue, Sticks stayed out of it until she, along with her team and Orbot and Cubot, fell into the temple as it caved in. Reuniting with Sonic and Eggman inside, the two got everyone to safety through a hidden path just in time, and Sticks left with her team.[28]

While Team Sonic was at Meh Burger, Orbot and Cubot arrived, having left Eggman to be their friends, but Sticks remained dubious. Soon after, Eggman, Orbot and Cubot came for Team Sonic's help to stop a computer virus named Nominatus who had taken over Eggman's tech to destroy all life forms. Sticks thus helped keep the invading robots away until Tails, Eggman, Orbot and Cubot destroyed Nominatus. The battle over, Team Sonic ended their truce with Eggman.[29] Having a dream which she took as a sign that aliens were coming, Sticks began setting up traps. After telling Sonic of her work when meeting him, Sticks accidentally caught Sonic and had some trouble freeing him. Soon after, Sticks and her team saved Sonic from Eggman's robots when they attacked him, before helping Sonic return a library book.[30]

Sticks heading into the jungle with Amy.

When Sticks met Amy as she was going to Hidden Meadows, she offered to teach her the survival skills for the trip. However, Sonic thought he was better for this task, so Sticks bet she could teach Amy better survival skills than Sonic could teach Knuckles. Agreeing to a race to Hidden Meadows, Sticks taught Amy what she needed. When the race began, Team Sticks' trip went smoothly. However, seeing the boys having trouble, Sticks and Amy tried fruitlessly to help them in various ways, until they got stuck in an abandoned missile silo. Though Sonic and Knuckles used this opportunity to head for the goal, Sticks got her and Amy out of there by riding a missile, which they used to reach the goal first before sending it back to its owner.[30]

As Sticks and her team pranked Knuckles, they noticed Eggman's spy drone and gave it false information which they used to lure Eggman into a prank. With Sticks voicing the folly of machines, she inspired Eggman to give up technology, his lair included. Not long after, the island was randomly attacked by Eggman's forces, deployed by the Lightning Bolt Society. Though they tried to fight the robots at first, Sticks and her team went after the Lightning Bolts at Eggman's lair. After getting them out with Eggman's help, Eggman resumed his old life.[31] While enjoying a game with her friends, Sticks heard from Amy that she was opening a better restaurant than the sloppy Meh Burger. Sticks served as a staff member at "Chez Amy" along with her team for a while, but left as Amy got crazy over her rivalry with Dave the Intern at Meh Burger, even by Sticks' standards. Regardless, Sticks and the team came to Amy's aid when Badniks attacked Chez Amy. After Chez Amy got destroyed, the team returned to Meh Burger as customers after helping rebuild it from an Eggman attack.[32] Sticks was later out with her friends when they met the hip Swifty the Shrew, whom Sticks was quickly smitten with. This changed when Sticks saw how Swifty arrogantly challenged Sonic to a race where the loser would be banished from the Village. In spite of Sticks rooting for Sonic at the race, Sonic lost and was promptly banished. However, as Eggman appeared with multiple Swifty robots and revealed to Sticks' team that he orchestrated it all to leave the Village defenseless, Sonic was brought back and saved the day.[33]

Sticks running from the curse of the cross eyed moose.

While home, Sticks saw a Cross Eyed Moose and believed her team had been cursed. As Sticks tried protecting her friends with traps, they went with her alternative to seek out a marmoset named Monkey-Boy to break the curse, whom Sticks begged into helping them. Given chores to prove their worthiness, Sticks worked without complains (unlike her team) until Monkey-Boy was attacked by Eggman. Making a deal, Team Sonic got rid of Eggman and in return, Monkey-Boy broke their curse. On their way home, Sticks almost believed they had been cursed again had it not been for Knuckles.[34] Later helping her team prepare the Chili Dog Cook-Off, Sticks was set to enter with a special pepper she had bought from Mrs. Vandersnout, but realized thanks to Knuckles that it was a phony. At the cook-off, Sticks and her team noticed Knuckles had gone missing after leaving to find a new pepper. After looking for a day, Team Sonic found Knuckles, having fainted from eating a dream-inducing pepper.[35]

When Sticks tried on Amy's behest to get ready for their girls' night out, Amy declare her a pack rat when seeing her stuffed lumber room. Against Sticks' wishes and refusal to give up her stuff, Amy thus began a yard sale with the team. To Sticks' horror, she later saw Amy had cleared the entrance to the evil Froglodytes' caves in her burrow. Despite the heroes' attempts, the frogs invaded Sticks' home and took her into their caves to be sacrificed to Frogymandias. Fortunately, her team rescued her. Resealing the caves again, Sticks and Amy had their girls' night out.[3] To her anger, Sticks later found her property the site of a future mall, which had been approved by Knuckles while he filled in for Mayor Fink and recklessly approved bills. Sticks tried rallying her team against Knuckles, but was dismissed until he cast the Village into chaos. Allying with fellow-minded Eggman, Sticks and her team confronted Knuckles, during which his approval stamp ran out of ink. However, when Eggman took the stamp to control the Village, Sticks destroyed the stamp, and Mayor Fink returned to his position soon after.[36]

Sticks later answered the call to stop an Eggman attack, only to hear to her shock when Sonic and Knuckles came that Sonic had called Mike the Ox "just a guy," which had upset the whole Village. Much to Sticks' dismay, she and her team were then dragged into Amy's sensitivity seminar with Sonic when the hedgehog tried to restore his image. Rejoining the seminar with Sonic after he got Mike injured by letting him join Team Sonic's fights, Sticks came along on a camping trip while Sonic decided to retire. When Sticks returned, she found Sonic back in action and beloved by the villagers again, though she would continue Amy's seminar.[37]

Sticks unnerved by different dimensions.

Sticks was later shocked to find another Knuckles at the team barbecue. Figuring out this Knuckles was from a Mirror Dimension, Sticks was freaked out over having a counterpart. After the alternate Knuckles left to get the tech to get him home at Eggman's lair, Sticks, Sonic and Amy went to free him from Eggman's captivity after learning that having two Knuckles in one place was making them fade away and put their dimensions at risk of imploding. Convincing Eggman, they got the alternate Knuckles back and the tech to send him home.[38] Another time, when Sticks enjoyed some commodities unintentionally given by Dave the Intern, she and her team had to step in when Dave imprisoned Eggman, seized Eggman's forces, and clumsily used Octopus Bot to attack them. Sticks thus kept Dave from hurting himself and others until Sonic came back with Eggman and stopped Octopus Bot.[39]

On the day of New Year's Eve, Team Sonic helped decorate the village for the party, where Sticks was skeptic of Tails' decorating gadget, while fending off Eggman's Ball Bots. As Sticks celebrated New Year at the party, Eggman came and used his Slow Motion Machine to slow down time long enough for him to beat Sonic in something before New Year. However, Sticks not believe Eggman's claims of victory, as it happened too fast for her to see.[40] When the Justin Beaver fever hit the Village, Sticks was turned into a Justin fan girl by Amy, despite Sticks' contempt for capitalism, when Amy had her team hear Justin's mind control music. Now a mindless consumer, Sticks and Amy shopped for Justin's merchandise and his autograph. Ignoring reason from the guys, Amy and Sticks came to Justin's concert where he and Dreamboat Express had a sing-off. During the show, Sticks was freed from the mind control by Dreamboat Express, now Dude-itude, with no memory of what had occurred.[41]

Sticks gives Tails dating advice.

Sticks later came and helped foil Eggman's attack on Leroy the Turtle with Decimator Bot, when she learned that Tails had a crush on Zooey. As Tails sought advice on how to talk to Zooey, Sticks told him to perform a primal dating dance. However, Sticks' idea did not work. As Eggman began a new attack though, Sticks and Team Sonic stayed back on Tails' order and saw him stop Eggman while winning over Zooey in his own way.[42] Another time, Team Sonic saw a photoshoot, during which Knuckles became famed as "Trash Can Head Guy" For a time, Sticks enjoyed the benefits of being a celebrity's friend. However, she and her team soon had to save Knuckles from an Eggman attack, orchestrated by Comedy Chimp after Knuckles became the host for the Comedy Chimp Show. In the ensuing fight at the studio, Sticks got Knuckles to rejoin the team. As they drove off Eggman, Knuckles renounced his fame in favor of his friends.[43]

Sticks eventually met Sonic, Knuckles and Amy when they were helping Perci, but ran away screaming as soon as Perci greeted her.[44] As Sticks later saw Tails demonstrate his Super Antenna, Knuckles took up inventing as a hobby. Sticks soon after came to the Robot Battle Royale when Knuckles got Tails to compete with him. There, Eggman won the tournament by seizing Tails' robot-controlling Hypnobot in the finals, before using it to take over Tails' inventions. While Sticks helped her team hold off Eggman, Tails took Hypnobot back and had it get rid of Eggman, only for Hypnobot to be destroyed by a stray robot afterwards.[45]

Sticks and crew enduring a heat wave.

When Team Sonic endured a heatwave and had to deal with super-charged Badniks, they noticed the latter was acting haywire. Checking up on Eggman, they discovered he had captured the Archipelago Homeowners Association to avoid eviction. After freeing the prisoners, Sticks and her team left as Eggman and the association made an agreement.[46] Sticks and the guys soon noticed Amy was into Fuzzy Puppies and ridiculed her, before resuming their routines and Eggman battles. When Sticks suspected something was happening though, the team investigated Amy and learned she was "Fuzzy Puppy buddies" with Eggman. Keeping an eye on the pair at Puppy Con, Team Sonic stopped a rockslide seemingly caused by the Lightning Bolts, only to learn it was a distraction Eggman staged while he stole a rare game piece. While Amy resolved the situation, Sticks stayed back.[47]

Later beating Eggman again, Team Sonic complied to his wish for a fair fight by facing him one-on-one. On Sticks' turn though, she got fooled by Eggman who stole her cage. Though Sonic laughed at her and the team as they all got tricked, Team Sonic came to Sonic's aid when Eggman caught him with their own gear. By working together by switching out when needed, Team Sonic beat Eggman while keeping their deal. However, Sticks and co. still left Sonic encaged with Eggman to teach him a lesson.[48] Following their millionth defeat of Eggman, Team Sonic got the Greatest Role Model of All Time Award. However, the team's horsing around made the mayor hire D.B. Platypus to make them better role models. Eventually, Sticks got fed up with Platypus' strict rules and left. However, she returned to fight Eggman as he was stealing a trophy. With her team kept from helping her fight by Platypus, Sticks flung Platypus away and distracted the nearby audience. Team Sonic thus helped Sticks beat Eggman and the team decided to resume their old ways.[11]

Sticks against her friends.

While stuck in Amy's House during a storm, Sticks, Sonic, Tails and Knuckles drove Amy nuts with their antics. Finding Amy's secret script for A Rose Without Thorns, they got mad at Amy for her portrayals of them in it. With Amy mad at them too for reading her stuff, the team fell apart as they all began arguing. While Sticks, Sonic, Tails and Knuckles reconciled after a fight, Amy stayed mad since they had trashed her house, so they put up Amy's play for her as an apology. Though it worked, they and the audience still went to Amy's House as another storm arrived.[49] Sticks later served as a judge and commentator for a dare between Sonic and Knuckles. As she declared Knuckles' defeat, the echidna was inspired to make amends with Charlie (which turned out horribly).[50]

As Team Sonic helped Amy built a bookcase, they were attacked by Team Eggman, Eggman's league of villains. Seeing a Weasel Bandit steal Lady Walrus' purse, Sticks and Amy followed him, only to get ambushed by Dave and the Stunt Bears. After beating them, Stick regrouped with her crew as Team Eggman was defeated to play ball with Eggman as payback.[51]

Season two

When Sticks came to movie star Tommy Thunder's new movie promotion with her team, they stopped Eggman's attack on a baker, inspiring Tommy to observe Sonic's heroics for his upcoming role. While Sticks was charmed by Tommy and his benefits, Tommy got Sonic to let him to hang around, although Tommy took credit for Sticks and her team's next victory over the Weasel Bandits. Still, Sticks was proud of Sonic when he finally let Tommy share the credit.[52] As an asteroid was about to hit the earth and destroy civilization, Sticks and her team would build Tails' Solar Convergence Device and steal Eggman's Egg Rocket (since Eggman wanted the asteroid to hit so he could sell spots in his bunker to the villagers). Sticks and co. then sent Knuckles into space so he could knock the asteroid off-course with the SCD. Instead, he shattered the asteroid, leaving its pieces to rain down on them. Fortunately, Sonic used his speed and Amy's Hammer to deflect the pieces.[53]

Sticks as a news journalist.

Noticing the local water was gone, Sticks tried bringing the indifferent news media into investigating her theories. Fed up with the fluff they gave her instead, Sticks compromised her ideals and began a podcast with Tails' aid to find the truth for the people. As Sticks' podcast grew in popularity after she uncovered Eggman as the water thief, the network offered her a TV news gig. Although Sticks accepted it to expand her audience, she soon became everything she had hated and briefly made the villagers revolt against the local powers. Then, after directing the villagers into stopping Eggman's latest plot, Sticks quit her job, leaving the news to the pros.[54] Sticks later helped her team experiment on boosting Sonic's speed. When Sonic vanished while using Tails' Ultrasonic Speed Amplifier, Sticks helped herself to Sonic's stuff despite learning that he was only stuck on another plane of existence. As Team Sonic tried to bring back Sonic, Eggman used Sonic's absence to attack the Village. Sticks and co. thus held Eggman off while Tails retrieved Sonic, and together, the heroes beat Eggman's forces.[55]

Sticks later learned that Sonic and Tails had betted to see if the latter could catch the former. She was soon after caught in one of Tails' traps while with Sonic and got left behind, but soon escaped and helped her team save Sonic when Eggman exploited Tails' capture of Sonic. Afterwards, Sticks was still mad at Tails, though she later saw him take his bet's punishment at Meh Burger Karaoke Night.[56] After beating Eggman again, Sticks and co. would investigate seismic activity out at sea. There, they found Eggman generating a tidal wave underwater to destroy the Village. After getting stalled by the aquaphobic Sonic, Sticks and her team forced Sonic into the sea with the aid of Soar the Eagle's life-coaching. Remaining on standby with Tails, Sticks went underwater to bring an air hose to her friends after Sonic's got cut. As they then redirected the Wave Machine, Sticks went home with her crew.[57]

Sticks vs. Dreamcaster.

While painting in the night, Sticks saw Dreamcaster, but her team did not believe her when she told them. Seeking proof, Sticks caught the robot hypnotizing the Village through TV broadcasts (which Sticks did not watch), but her attempt to warn people on TV were ignored. Put in jail by her team for vandalizing a TV studio, Sticks saw her hypnotized friends and villagers being used by Eggman to build a world-controlling satellite. Escaping jail and Dreamcaster, Sticks returned with tin foil hats that freed her team, who stopped Eggman while she beat Dreamcaster, thus freeing the villagers. Sticks also made peace with her team, whose disbelief was Dreamcaster's work.[58] Getting introduced to Tails' new defense for the Village when Tails repelled Eggman with it, Sticks and co. beat Eggman and his Scorpion Bots at Tails' trophy ceremony when Eggman got past the defense in his Egg Tank and used it to attack the Village. Back in her burrow, Sticks got pestered by an odd-acting Tails until she discovered he was one of five Tails copies. Figuring out Tails had split himself, more copies were made when Team Sonic tried remerging them. Gathering the runaway copies, Sticks helped Sonic, Amy and Eggman catch those in Eggmans lair. In turn, Eggman helped fuse the copies back into the real Tails (who made Sticks flip out).[59]

After stopping one of Eggman's attacks, Sticks and co. helped cure Knuckles of the amnesia he got during the fight. As Knuckles recalled that he was the last of kind, Sticks would watch him try to find a foster family. Sticks and her team later had to fight both Knuckles and Charlie after Knuckles joined Charlie and Belinda's family and became a villain. Thankfully, Knuckles would rejoin his team and help beat Charlie, and Sticks assured him afterwards that Team Sonic was his family.[60] While playing Jungle Predator, Sticks and her team found a mech suit in an airtight Ancient ruin. The crew got trapped there by Eggman, but Sonic broke them out with the mech suit, although Sticks had to stop him from killing Eggman. Noticing Sonic's growing malice while wearing the mech suit, Sticks and co. found the mech suit's blueprints and learned it was taking over Sonic. When Sonic would not listen though, Sticks and her crew fought him when he threatened the Village. While Sticks drew Sonic's fire, her team rendered the mech suit benign, thus freeing Sonic, who chose to keep the mech suit.[61]

Sticks befriends Og.

Having stopped Eggman's search for Ancient tech, Sticks and co. would investigate some robberies, eventually discovering the thief was Og, a friendly Froglodyte just seeking a new life on the surface. While her team was suspicious of Og, Sticks would bonded with him, and was soon tasked with watching him. Later, while offended by Sonic's attempt to blame Og for the present Froglodyte invasion, Sticks would face the horde with her team. When the horde got too much though, Og helped the team reseal the evil frogs underground. Sticks then had some time with Og, who would go get his own pad.[62] Sticks and co. later came to an edition of the Comedy Chimp Show, where Knuckles won a lamp. The next day, Sticks saw Knuckles had gotten a house for his lamp. Sticks spent the next days battling Eggman with her team while Knuckles worked two full-time jobs to pay his house fees. Sticks was thus happy when he wanted to quit one of them. When Knuckles kept his jobs though, only to lose them when trying to see to them and the team, Sticks and co. learned his landlord T.W. Barker was strong-arming him, and helped revoke Knuckles' contract and house.[63]

When the Village had a power outage, Sticks and her team investigated its cause. Finding Eggman innocent, they interrogated Mayor Fink and learned the town's power source (the Meroke Crystal) had died out. As such, Sticks and her team followed Fink's directions into the mountains to get a new crystal from a deadly temple built by the Ancients, where they solved the riddles of the place and its guardians thanks to Knuckles' simple thinking. Claiming the crystal, the team got it to the Village in time to restore order.[64] At a town meeting, Sticks learned that their village was named "Badgerville" after her evil ancestor, Jebediah Badger. Although Sticks had Amy's support, the villagers would scorn her for her ancestry. As a vote between Amy and Eggman's propositions for a new town name then arose, Sticks tried in vain to help Amy. In the end, Eggman used the referendum to get elected as Village leader. Tired of being scorned, Sticks decided to leave town until Amy told her that, as Jebediah's descendant, she owned the Village. Sticks thus helped her team remove Eggman from power and stop his plan to destroy the Village. Having cleared her name too, Sticks gave the Village, which she named "Hedgehog Village" after Amy as thanks, to the people.[2]

Sticks and Dave team up.

After coming to Meh Burger, which had gotten new robot employees (courtesy of Eggman), Sticks saw Dave the Intern lose his job to one of the robot employees in a contest. Disliking these robots, Sticks did not attend the reopening of the improved Meh Burger until her team, who had been caught in a force-field with the villagers and sent towards space in Meh Burger by Eggman, contacted her. Following Tails' instructions, Sticks assembled Tails' gear and got Dave to fly her up to Meh Burger in Tails' Plane. With her allies' aid, Sticks managed a mid-air rescue of her team and the villagers while returning Meh Burger to the surface. Sticks subsequently saw Meh Burger return to normal.[6] After Team Sonic stopped Eggman and his robots' theft of the Fregosi Sapphire at its unveiling, Sticks was alarmed when Amy adopted a Bee Bot named Bea. As Sticks and co. tried to comfort Amy after Eggman took Bea, Eggman came and used Bea alongside Bee Bot look-alikes (which kept Team Sonic from hurting them) to take the Fregosi Sapphire from Knuckles. Facing Eggman and his Bee Bots without Amy, Sticks and co. fought a Fregosi Sapphire-powered Mega Bot until Amy came and helped spot Bea and beat Mega Bot when it shot Bea. With their gem secured, Sticks saw Tails fix Bea.[65]

Having visited the Science Fair Awards, Sticks would come to help her team foil an Eggman attack. She and Amy soon after observed, and later attended, the playdates Mombot set up between Sonic and Eggman, during which Sticks enjoyed seeing Eggman get humiliated due to Mombot. Afterwards, Sticks got Beth the Shrew's attention when she let her in on her conspiracy theories.[66] Sticks later declined Tails' offer to observe the stars when seeing Knuckles' new hangout. When Tails seemingly proved Muckfoot's existence with a photo, which made him a local hero and started Muckfoot Mania, Sticks was skeptical. Disliking the exploitation of Tails' work too, she made Tails discover with her (during which they met Eggman) that Muckfoot was just a muddy Knuckles on berry-induced sleepwalks. Sticks would not rat Tails out though, even as he withheld their discovery. When Tails told them that Barker, who wanted Muckfoot as his attraction, had caught Knuckles though, Sticks and co. faced Barker on his Muckfoot world tour, where they beat Barker and his allies (Eggman and his lackeys included) by feeding them sleepwalk-inducing berries, and saved Knuckles. Sticks then saw Tails tell the public the truth about Muckfoot.[67] Sticks soon after came to see Tails demonstrate his Build-it Box by materializing a small Ms. Tomatopotamus. Taming Ms. Tomatopotamus, Sticks and co. would stop an Eggman attack before focusing on their hippo. After she suddenly grew however, the gang discovered that Nominatus, Beta and Retro had hijacked the Build-it Box. While Tails and Knuckles went to question their suspect Eggman, Sticks, Sonic and Amy faced the thieves as they used the Build-it Box to materialize an army to conquer the planet with. With Ms. Tomatopotamus's aid, and the timely support of Eggman and his Badniks however, Sticks and her united crew stopped the evil trio, who got shrunk and imprisoned by Eggman.[68]

Sticks discussing Knuckles' exile.

Coming to the beach, Sticks and her team would get attacked by Eggman. While they won, Sticks disapproved of Sonic's lack of teamwork when he hogged the fight for himself. Later at lunch, Sticks and co. were told by Sonic that he had Steve Eggman join the team after Steve saved him. Besides Sonic making a team decision alone, Sticks also had issues trusting Steve, even after he helped them save some Gogobas on a mission. When Soar then told her that Knuckles was in exile, Sticks faced her team with these news until "Tails" made her go into hiding. Tails and Amy soon revealed though that Steve, who was a robot shapeshifter out to break Team Sonic apart, had tricked her, so Sticks joined her reformed team, and together they rescued Sonic when Eggman and Steve attacked him.[69] After hearing that Sonic and Tails had irked each other since Sonic moved in with Tails (as a widabit was using Sonic's Shack for its courting ritual), Sticks and Knuckles would confront Eggman upon his return. As Team Sonic assembled, ESC's Fastidious Beaver would halt their fight with Eggman due to a widabit's arrival, just as more widabits, whom Tails had mistakenly attracted, ran through the Village to Sonic's Shack. After Sticks saved a bystander from the stampede, she sniffed out a fiftieth widabit for her team to join those at the shack, which would let Sonic relocate them. After the beast was moved though, Sticks had fun seeing Sonic being forced to wait a week for the relocation at Tails'.[70]

When Sticks and co. held a charity car wash, Eggman attacked them with his Badniks when he complained about their service. Team Sonic easily beat the Badniks, but lost when Mighton and Bolts appeared and beat the team for Eggman. After Eggman left with his new allies, Sticks investigated these robots' origins with her team. Finding a spaceship, they discovered the robots were not of this world. Orbot and Cubot later came and told Sticks and co. that Eggman held Mighton and Bolts captive in his lair. Saving Mighton and Bolts after a battle in the lair, Sticks (despite her qualms) and co. made peace with them before seeing the duo off after helping fix their ship. Just then however, the Cubot prototypes attacked the group and shot Tails.[71] Tails survived though, and Team Sonic subdued the prototypes. Leaving Sonic and Tails to examine the prototypes, Sticks, Amy and Knuckles found the Village under a relentless attack from every robot around, prompting them to engage the robots. After Sonic and Tails joined the fight, Tails revealed a malware signal from Morristown was controlling the robots, so Sticks stayed behind with Amy and Knuckles to keep the robots at bay while Sonic and Tails went to Morristown to stop the signal. However, things got worse for Sticks when an infected FriendBot attacked the town too.[72] As the attack raged on, Sticks and co. received help from Og. Even so, the robots slowly overwhelmed them. Thankfully, Sticks got help from the villagers after Knuckles got them to join the fight. The robots withdrew not long after, once Sonic and Tails stopped the malware signal, which left Sticks and co. with a town to clean up, but without the villagers' help.[73]

Sticks and Cyborg Sticks.

With Sonic and Tails staying in Morristown for a while, Sticks and co. began cleaning up the town until they saw Eggman head for Morristown with his army and Hypnobot to conquer it. Believing Sonic and Tails would need them, Sticks, Amy and Knuckles used FriendBot to reach Morristown when Hypnobot made him join the invasion. There, Sticks helped her team and allies fight Eggman's army until Hypnobot began turning Morristown's robots against them. Overwhelmed, the group retreated to a bunker where Bolts made malware-proof cyborg clones of Sticks and her team, who helped them overpower Eggman's army when they resumed the fight. After Hypnobot got smashed and Eggman retreated, Sticks bid farewell to a liberated Morristown (now renamed "Roboken") with the knowledge that her team's cyborg clones had the city covered.[74]

Eventually catching fleas after she and her team stopped Eggman's newest theft by beating his HugeBot, an itchy Sticks soon saw at Meh Burger that her team had fleas too. This led to Sticks and her crew getting quarantined by the authorities when they tried to enter the Male Fennec's shop, although the mayor soon freed them so they could stop Eggman's latest attack. It was then that they discovered that their fleas were remote-controlled Eggman robots. Unable to remove these FleaBots, Sticks and co. faced Eggman to make him stop them. As Eggman struck back using his FleaBots and Badniks, Team Sonic made the former stick to Eggman for the time being after getting his FleaBot remote.[75] Foiling later the Lightning Bolt Society's newest scheme, Sticks and her Pin Dashers faced the Lightning Bowler Society in bowling after the latter became bowlers, and lost. Pressed by Sonic, Sticks trained with her team for their arranged rematch, but on the day of the match they heard that the Lightning Bowlers broke up. Following Sonic's plan to reunite them for the rematch, Sticks and co. gathered the group, but then had to stop Eggman when he came with his Mega. While Sticks and co. beat the Mega with the unintended help from the Lightning Bowlers when they tried to fight Team Sonic, the rematch got canceled when the Lightning Bowlers decided to become Lightning Bolts again.[76]

Sticks enjoying her weekend off.

When Dude-itude had to perform at a concert on the other side of the island, Sticks was ready to have a girls' weekend with Amy. After seeing their friends off, Sticks saw Amy set up a Sonic doll to distract Eggman, allowing them to relax without worrying about Eggman attacking the island. After some back and forth, Sticks and Amy decided to spent their weekend at the spa. When Eggman tore through the Village in anger after realizing he had been distracted however, Sticks and Amy fessed up to him. Although they drove Eggman off when he unleashed his Badniks on them, Belinda attacked immediately after with Charlie's Mech Suit, whom Sticks and Amy, with some effort, beat too. Later on, Sticks saw Eggman retrieve the Sonic doll.[77][78] Sticks and co. soon after got lured into a trap by Eggman, but were able to beat his robots and get away. Hearing later that Eggman had turned his lair into a hotel to pay a fee, Sticks checked in there with her team to keep an eye on Eggman's plans. Because Sticks stuck to herself though, she did not get captured alongside her team when Eggman took his guests hostage for an evil scheme. Discovering this, Sticks freed her team and fought back against Eggman's robots alongside them, which led to the guests' liberation and the destruction of Eggman's lair.[79]

When local gossip revealed that Dr. Eggman was no doctor, Sticks would see him as an even greater joke. She thus joined the villagers in mocking Eggman during the scientist's next trip to the Village. For the next boring weeks where Eggman focused on getting a Ph.D., Sticks spent her free time goofing off with his friends. Though Sticks and co. stopped Eggman when he tried to rob a store, their fight lacked the usual spark. When Eggman did earn his doctorate, Sticks watched his graduation ceremony.[80] Visiting later the Haunted Forest with her team alongside Eggman, Sticks got frightened by one of the props. A few days after, she and her team got attacked by Barker after he seized Eggman's properties. Thanks to Barker's strategies, Sticks had a hard time against the Badniks Barker used. However, she and her team were saved when Eggman reclaimed his Badniks and properties from Barker. Sticks then proceeded to fight Eggman and his robots like always.[81] Sticks later had a game with her team when she saw Cubot, who had gone nuts and was flying around with a rampant Anti Gravity Ray, and Eggman arrive. With Cubot's gravity field picking up innocent villagers, Sticks and co. tried to rescue the villagers, only for Cubot to gain control of the Anti Gravity Ray. Cubot then began taking Sticks, along with some of her friends and the villagers, into space to enlighten them. Thankfully, Sonic and Tails got them down by reversing the Anti Gravity Ray. After removing the Anti Gravity Ray from Cubot though, Sticks and co. almost got crushed by the gravity it began to emit. Knuckles however, saved them by destroyed the device.[82]

Sticks playing soccer.

When their beloved rec center got closed, Sticks and co. tried saving it by filling out a petition, which the mayor dismissed. Concurrently, Eggman tried to get the rec center so he could trash it. Since only the winner of a sports game could get it, Sticks' team and Eggman arranged a soccer match. When Sticks later saw that they would face Team Cybonic, whom Eggman had recruited with mind-control, she accepted this once Eggman promised his team's freedom after the match. Sticks' team stood to lose however when Eggman made his team meaner (but dumber) while the teams practiced. At the match though, they won by exploiting Team Cybonic's stupidity, leading to the rec center's reopening. Sticks then helped freed Team Cybonic from the mind-control when the cyborgs attacked them, and together they got payback at Eggman.[83] Sticks soon after helped Sonic beat up Eggman and Morpho after they sent Sonic on a trip to another dimension.[84] Another time at Tails', Sticks saw her friends encourage Tails to make a Build-it Box their team could use to make large and fun stuff with. With it, the crew made themselves cars. Getting over-competitive, Sticks and co. prepped their own car race, only to be forced to make it an official event by racing laws presented by the mayor. After eight months of permits, Sticks had her race against her team in her car, with locals like Eggman joining them, but crashed on the track. With the rest of Team Sonic crashing too and Eggman poised to win, Sticks, like her team, realized their erroneous ways and helped make a car from their own that Sonic won the race with. Afterward, Sticks received a participation trophy.[85]

Eventually, Sticks reunited with her team when Amy's Hammer vanished. Along the way, they fought off Eggman when he got mad at them for accusing him of taking the hammer (which he did not). Sticks tried afterward to comfort a dismayed Amy, who hired Vector the Crocodile to find her hammer. While Vector and Sonic conducted the investigation, Sticks stood on the sidelines, watching the case unfold and helping Amy adjust to other weapons, until Vector found the hammer and returned it to Amy.[86] Getting scammed by Eggman's online business later on, Sticks and co. faced Eggman in his lair. During the subsequent fight, a malfunction in the HQ room made the lair's sorting system send Sticks and Orbot to the lair's living room, with the lair's lockdown protocol trapping them there soon after. Turning off the cooling vents, the two traveled to Amy and Tails in the basement through the vents, only to learn that the lair's Mootonium was about to explode. Upon hearing Eggman communicate with them in morse code through the pipes however, Orbot helped the group relay Eggman's instructions on how to undo the lockdown to Sonic in the HQ room, thus allowing everyone to escape the lair before it blew up. In the aftermath, Sticks had come to dislike Orbot less.[12]

Sticks dealing with Tails' condition.

Coming under attack by Bee Bots later on, Sticks and co. trapped them in a cave when Orbot and Cubot proved unable to call off the Bee Bots without Eggman (who was on vacation). Some time after, Sticks saw Tails had been merged with a straggler Bee Bot by his Matter Transporter. Sticks and co. tried at first to figure out how to fix Tails, but then had to take care of a rescue mission. Afterward, Tails chose to remain as he was. However, Sticks soon saw Tails get corrupted by his Bee Bot half, which made Tails use the imprisoned Bee Bots to attack Team Sonic, who fell back after seeing Tails get hurt for every Bee Bot they beat. Sonic later had Eggman set the Matter Transporter to cure Tails, whom Sonic lured out. Sticks and co. then began beating Bee Bots to weaken Tails, which allowed them to return him to normal.[87] Later, after seeing Eggman's bots chase a cuddly creature around, Sticks and co. would ask Eggman about the creature. They soon saw though that Eggman was the creature, and that he turned into it whenever he got angry. As Sonic proceeded to tease Eggman into morphing, Sticks enjoyed this new opportunity to annoy Eggman. After Eggman took anger management class however, Sticks could not get to him.[88]

When Eggman went on vacation with his robot family, Sticks and co. tried taking some time off, only to have several misadventures. Eventually, they found Eggman and co. returning, with Mighton and Cyborg Sonic hot on their trail. Learning that Eggman had stolen Bolts' intelligence chip, Sticks and her team helped Mighton and Cyborg Sonic battle Eggman's robots, whom Eggman upgraded with the chip. When the chip ended up in Mombot though, the Eggman family kept Team Sonic and co. from attacking Mombot. Eggman then surrendered the chip to the heroes to keep Mombot safe.[89]

Amy and Sticks vs. Shadow.

Sticks would later head for Meh Burger with her team, only for Eggman to attack them with Badniks. Although the team beat the Badniks, Sticks noticed that Eggman was up to something strange. Sticks and Amy later tried to stop Shadow when he showed up and began beating up Tails and Knuckles, but were swiftly defeated.[90] Once Shadow realized he had been tricked by Eggman into fighting Team Sonic however, he left. All beaten up, Sticks regrouped with her team, only for Lord Eggman (Eggman's counterpart from another dimension) to appear and attack Sonic. However, when Shadow arrived and attacked Lord Eggman, thinking that he was Dr. Eggman, Lord Eggman revealed that Dr. Eggman was hiding in his dimension, and provided Shadow with a portal to him. With Sonic joining Shadow on his trip, Sticks was left to watch Lord Eggman. Sonic and Shadow soon after returned with Eggman and Metal Sonic in tow. While these four individuals fought, Sticks and co. would help Sonic defeat Metal. The team's victory was short-lived however, as Shadow then revealed to the team that he, in a desire for universal revenge, had trapped Eggman and Lord Eggman in a secret place while they fought Metal; since their dimension cannot host two Eggmans, this would cause an abnormality that would destroy the universe. Wasting no time, Sticks helped look for the Eggmans. After Sonic found the Eggmans, Sticks would celebrate with her team when Sonic saved the universe.[91]

Archie Comics

Past

According to Sonic, Sticks grew up in the wild. It was from these beginnings that she would pick up her feral talents.[92]

The Big Boom

Sticks seeking her team, from Sonic Boom #1.

While her team were fighting Dr. Eggman Sticks saw the Rock-cyborg rise up from underground beneath Tails' house and leave with the whole house. She soon found Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy and told them how Tails' house had been taken (initially referred to the house having been "robbed") While her friends tried to make a plan, Sticks found the Rock-cyborg's footprints and followed them while sniffing the grass, which made her team think she got the robot's scent. When she finally explained herself, she had lead the group to the Rock-cyborg. There, Sticks climbed up the Rock-cyborg to check Tails' gutters for wired tapes where she helped Tails knock the Rock-cyborg over as a part of the team's ambush, giving Sonic the chance to destroy it and bring Tails' house back on its foundation.[92]

Not long after, Sticks faced Dr. Eggman's Big Boy mech with Sonic, Tails and Amy. During the battle, Knuckles appeared and trapped his own team, claiming he now worked with Eggman since was he tired of Amy's criticism, though Sticks went ahead and trapped herself in her own cage. As they were loaded into the Big Boy, Knuckles revealed to them that he was faking being Eggman's ally to fool him. As Knuckles left to defeat Eggman (after Amy and Tails convinced him that his plan was brilliant despite its flaws), Sticks freed Sonic who in turn broke them out of the Big Boy while Knuckles made Eggman retreat. Shortly after the team took care of Orbot and Cubot though, Sticks found Amy in a panic over having lost her hammer.[93] Back at Amy's House, Sticks saw Amy sob over her loss which only was worsened by Sonic, Tails and Knuckles. To stop it, Sticks kicked the boys out to look for the hammer, while she helped Amy find a placeholder in her arsenal. However, Amy's failed to use them and only got Sticks and Knuckles injured. Fortunately, Sonic found Amy's Hammer and Sticks went home, where she found the Rock of Justice, an ancient "weapon" she had spent years searching for.[94][95]

Sticks after beating the Big Boy, from Sonic Boom #4.

As her friends were cornered by Dr. Eggman's upgraded Big Boy, Sitcks came to aid them and announced she would defeat Eggman with the Rock of Justice, but no one believed it was the weapon she claimed it to be, but heroes and villain alike were unimpressed at the seemingly inanimate stone, and ignored her despite Sticks begging her team to use it. Frustrated at their ignorance, she demonstrated the Rock of Justice herself by throwing it at the Big Boy, causing it to ricochet into the mech and destroy it, and Sticks hailed the weapon to her flabbergasted team. After they scared Eggman and his lackeys off, Sticks received apologies and congratulations from her friends, but then discovered that the Rock of Justice's power was used up. After mourning her loss, Sticks was taken home by Tails and Amy, where she nonchalantly discarded the Rock of Justice in a rock pile after thanking it one last time.[95]

Boom Shaka-laka

Stick and her team soon came to help Sonic when Dr. Eggman attacked him with his minions, though they let Eggman escape. Later at Meh Burger, Team Sonic met Eggman again who sought their help to operate the rides on his Eggtoberfest, which Eggman hoped to gain the villagers' trust with. Sticks and her friends complied to it, though only to keep an eye on things, where they soon after found Eggman's army attacking the villagers. After defeating the army, Sticks and her team were hailed by the villagers.[96]

Some time later, Sticks and the team arrived to defend Sonic when he was attacked by Eggman's Courier Robot. The robot then transformed into a video phone which Eggman contacted Team Sonic through to challenge them to a fair race in the Go-kart Pan-island Grand Prix. While the others accepted, Sticks objected it greatly, predicting it was a trap to copy their data with rigged scanners into one of Eggman's robots and that Eggman's kart would become a "dragon-mech".[97] The next day, Sticks watched Sonic and Eggman's road brawl from the spectators stand, completely unsurprised that nearly all her predictions were correct (Eggman's kart changed into a spider instead of a dragon). Coming to Sonic's aid at the finish line, Sticks attacked Eggman when he was not looking, while her team distracted him in Tails' Plane. After Sonic won, the team joined the attack, where Sticks got sent flying into the jungle by a piece of debris when the mech exploded. There, she found a strange portal and was startled by some mysterious people emerging from it.[98]

Worlds Unite and aftermath

Sticks meets the Maverick Hunters, from Sonic Boom #8.

Sticks retreated into the bushes as X, Zero and Axl of the Maverick Hunters emerged. Spying on the visitors, she attacked Zero when X suggested they asked around for some directions, declaring that she would not let them interrogate the villagers. After X explained that they came in peace, Sticks invite herself along on the robots' journey to bring down Sigma (Sticks guessed their mission, much to the surprise of her new allies). Taking a moment to grab Comedy Chimp and the Fastidious Beaver (much to the their confusion) to create "Team Sticks", Sticks took the group to Dr. Eggman's lair in search of a way to travel to different dimensions, where they encountered Orbot and Cubot. Upon being threatened by Zero, the duo complied to their demands and made a makeshift Genesis Portal with a machine in Eggman's lab, with Sticks and her allies joining the hunters on their adventure.[99]

The group arrived on the scene at the very moment in which Sonic's World and Earth from the year 20XX were being fused together as part of the evil Sigma's plans. Caught in the middle of the ensuing chaos, Sticks and her allies hooked up with the heroes of the fused worlds, the Freedom Fighters and the Robot Masters of Light Labs, to begin their eventual attack on Sigma and his forces.[100] Onboard the Sky Patrol, Sticks suspected Roll's broom of being an agent of Sigma and lured Roll to the ship's training room with it. There, she attacked the broom (and Roll) with all the room's equipment until Roll convinced her the broom was a double-agent on their side.[101] When Sticks got to the Unified Army's war meeting, they were unexpectedly joined by the native Dr. Eggman, Dr. Wily, and Xander Payne, who informed them of Sigma's base on the Lost Hex. On their way, Sticks had a conversation with the alternate versions of her friends and Payne about secret societies until they met an army of Mechaniloids controlled by Sigma's brainwashed commanders, the Deadly Six.[102]

Sticks and her new team, from Mega Man #51.

While Sticks eagerly fought, she was unable to make her more cowardly team members join. She was then knocked off the Sky Patrol and into a Genesis Portal by Zomom, and ended up in the world of Street Fighter where she met Chun-Li.[103] After some interrogation, Sticks convinced Chun-Li and her allies to join the fight against Sigma.[104] Assembling a new Team Sticks, Sticks brought her allies to the Sky Patrol just in time to dispatch a wave of invading Mavericks. Unknowingly, Sticks inspired Sally Acorn to divide the Unified Army into smaller teams and follow the other Mavericks Sigma had sent to other worlds to stop them and recruit other heroes.[105]

After following her new team back to their world to destroy a Unity Engine, Sticks accompanied X to the world of Monster Hunter where she got a Gore Magala to join them with babble. Slipping through an abnormality, Sticks then joined up with Axl in the world of Viewtiful Joe where she recruited Viewtiful Joe and Sexy Silvia as well.[106][107] Sticks then reunited with the bolstered Unified Army for an attack on Sigma-2, who then emerged as Sigma-3 and took down the army.[108] Though Super Sonic and Super Armor Mega Man beat Sigma, Sticks would have been destroyed when the damaged reality began collapsing, but Xander Payne undid Sigma's plans by changing history. Back home with her memories intact, Sticks told her team about her adventure, but none believed her. Nonetheless, she elaborated on the events for Amy, explaining about time paradoxes and nexuses of reality.[109]

Reestablishing herself back home, Sticks began monitoring Dr. Eggman over surveillance, only to find him spying on her at the same time.[110]
