The Time Eater is a character in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a monster with powers over time and space.


Encounter and destruction

Dr. Eggman discovered the Time Eater following one of his defeats at the hands of Sonic the Hedgehog, and set out to use it to alter history in his favor. However, in order to upgrade it with technology, he required the aid of another genius, and used the Time Eater's powers to recruit a past version of himself. Together, the pair employed the Time Eater to scatter Sonic and his various allies across time and space, but the Time Eater was defeated when Sonic joined forces with his own past self.[1] Regardless, the failure with the Time Eater indirectly led to Eggman's meeting with Dr. Wily.[2]

Worlds Collide

The Time Eater also existed at one point on Sonic's World after its dimension had its timeline altered by Dr. Eggman and Dr. Wily's Genesis Wave. However, the Time Eater was stopped by Sonic the Hedgehog at some point in this new reality's past. Dr. Light later brought up the Time Eater to Eggman in an attempt to state Eggman's experiences about tampering with forces that were beyond his control.[3]
