Tabby (タビー Tabī?) is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is an anthropomorphic koala and a member of the Coconut Crew, a youth association from Southern Island.[1]

In Sonic Rush Adventure, he appears at Southern Island after completing Plant Kingdom. When the player talks to Tabby, he can assign Sonic missions. Should the player completes these missions, Tabby will decorate Southern Island with various animals as a reward.

Appearance

Tabby is an anthropomorphic koala with mostly gray fur covering his body, along with white fur covering his front torso, muzzle, hands and inner ears. He also has small and beady black eyes, a large and flat black nose, cheek tufts, and bushy ears near the top of his head. For attire, he wears a yellow straw hat with holes for his ears, a green traveling backpack with a beige rolled-up wrapper packed on top of it, and brown shoes with gray straps, black soles, and white toes.

History

Past

Some time ago, Tabby came to know Marine, but later left Southern Island to travel alone.

Sonic Rush Adventure

In Sonic Rush Adventure, while Tabby was on Plant Kingdom, he heard someone nearby and was pleasantly surprised to see that it was Marine. Noticing that she was with Sonic and Tails, Tabby had Marine introduce her associates to him. Returning to Southern Island, Tabby heard from Sonic, Tails and Marine that they were looking for Materials to build sea vessels. Tabby therefore suggested that they sailed to the southwest of Plant Kingdom to Machine Labyrinth where they could supposedly find new Materials.

When Sonic and Tails were later leaving in the SS Tornado EX to return to their own dimension, Tabby and some of the other members of the Coconut Crew came to say goodbye to them alongside Blaze.

Personality

Tabby is an avid adventurer, having traveled to various places. Having enough manners to properly greet old friends, he is helpful and willing to share his knowledge with others. Similar to Marine, he also speaks with a slight Australian accent.[1]

Is someone there? / Marine: Ay, I know that voice! / Tabby: Oy, Marine! How are ya? / Marine: G'day, cobber! I haven't seen you in forever, mate! / Sonic & Tails: Cobber? / Marine: Yeah! Tabby's a member if our village's youth association. We call it the Coconut Crew."

Notes

  1. Setter said near the end of Sonic Rush Adventure that "Now that all the members of the Coconut Crew are back, the village is nice and lively again." At that point, Daikun, Colonel, Kylok, Muzy, Setter and Tabby are all present at the island. Excluding Marine, everyone else on the island (namely Sonic, Blaze, Tails, Norman and Gardon) is a foreigner, meaning that Setter most likely referred to the previously-mentioned group of koalas as the Coconut Crew.
