The Strange Relief is an object that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. It is a type of trap on the Floating Island for warding off intruders.



Strange Reliefs are golden pillars with grey, human-like faces on their bottoms. Said faces appear to be made of stone, and have a red gem on their foreheads and large noses.

Features and traits

The Strange Reliefs shoot arrows from their mouths. These arrows are powerful enough to pierce a rock pillar.[1]


When Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles "Tails" Prower first arrived on the Floating Island, Sonic accidentally triggered a Strange Relief. Had it not been for the warning of Tails, the relief's arrow would have hit the hedgehog. Sonic subsequently destroyed the relief as it began shooting more arrows, resulting in him ending up on a steep slope.[1]
