The Tocky (トッキー[1] Tokkī?), also known as Tookie,[1] is a creature that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a race of turtle Animals native to West Side Island, and are close friends of Sonic the Hedgehog and his allies. The Tockies are known for having been targeted by Dr. Robotnik who seeks to use them as energy sources for his various Badniks and imprison them in Capsules for later use.



The general Tocky is a small turtle with peach-colored skin and a round green shield with a grooved orange belly section. Although recognized as animals, the Tockies show physical humanoid traits and are capable of standing on their hind legs. They have flippers for limbs (the hind flippers which resemble stubby feet when standing up), large round heads with two large black eyes each, and beak-shaped mouths.

Game appearances

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

The Tockies first appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (16-bit). In this game, the Tockies and their fellow Animals from West Side Island were kidnapped by Dr. Robotnik and used as power sources for his Badnik workers which Robotnik needed to finish the Death Egg.[2] The Tockies can be found in Sky Chase Zone where they pop out of destroyed Badniks.

Sonic Mania


In Sonic Mania and its expansion Sonic Mania Plus, the Tockies reprise their roles from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 by being organic power sources for Dr. Eggman's Badniks again. The Tockies can be found in Titanic Monarch Zone, where they pop out of the Zone's destroyed Badniks.

When the player destroys the Metal Sonic hologram at the end of Stardust Speedway Zone Act 2, a few Tockies will occasionally appear until they are chased off by Metal Sonic.
