Tangle the Lemur is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series published by IDW Publishing. She is an anthropomorphic ring-tailed lemur and a heroic ally of Sonic the Hedgehog.
Concept and creation
Before even being given a name, the staff at IDW Publishing wanted Tangle "to be like a lot of other great Sonic characters and have a special ability tied to one of her features." After brainstorming for animals who could do cool stuff, the staff decided on a ring-tailed lemur, whose tail could prove a very versatile weapon. Finally, she was given the name "Tangle" as a reference to how she likes to "tangle" with bad guys.
Tangle is an anthropomorphic ring-tailed lemur with primarily white fur and purple eyes. She possesses a small black nose and a long bushy tail with gray stripes. She also has gray fur around her muzzle and between eyes, and dark gray fur around the sides of her eyes and on her round ears. She also has extra fur on top of head and chest, and small cheek tuffs.
Tangle wears a sleeveless black bodysuit with orange stripes down the sides, a yellow-orange sleeveless top, and detailed yellow-orange hi-tops with white laces and soles, black details, and orange cuffs. She also wears yellow-orange sportstape around her wrists and fingerless black gloves with blocky orange backs.
Described as heroic, Tangle is scrappy and loves to tangle with bad guys.
Powers and abilities
Tangle possesses a highly prehensile tail that she can use and manipulate in various ways. In practice, she can alternate between using it like a whip or even a hand to make a fist with.
- Tangle is the first character exclusive to the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series that was revealed to the public. Before Tangle was introduced to the public (on 24 January 2018), the "IDW Sonic Comics Squad" on Facebook teased Tangle's reveal with a silhouette of her that was slowly uncovered the closer they got to the date of her reveal.
