The Wolf Pack is a group that appears in the the Sonic the Hedgehog animated series. They are a group of Freedom Fighters, led by Lupe, who initially fought against the tyranny of Dr. Robotnik from their hideaway in the Great Unknown.
The Wolves previously lived a peaceful existence in harmony with nature, and were ruled by Lupe's father. Unfortunately, that all changed when Robotnik attacked, capturing Lupe's father and many others. Lupe and a handful of them thus formed the Wolf Pack, and began fighting to retake their home. They established themselves in an underground tunnel network, with inscriptions warning of a curse serving to scare aware faint-hearted intruders. By some means, they became known to Princess Sally's father the King, and were included on a list of Freedom Fighters that Sally was later given by him during his all-too-brief escape from the Void.
Sally, Antoine Depardieu, and Sonic the Hedgehog soon visited the Great Unknown in search of the Wolf Pack, whom they soon managed to locate. The two teams were then forced into an alliance when one of Robotnik's Doomsday Pods was sent to the region as a prelude to his Doomsday Project. Working together, they managed to bring down the pod, and the Wolf Pack soon aided the group from Knothole in contacting and uniting the other Freedom Fighter groups. While the entire group presumably joined in battling the Doomsday Project upon its completion, only Lupe was seen fighting alongside the leaders of the other Freedom Fighter groups at Doomsday Control.
In other media
In the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series and its spin-off comics published by Archie Comics, the Wolf Pack was very similar to its animated series counterpart, being a Freedom Fighter group of Mobian wolves devoted to overthrowing the tyranny of Dr. Robotnik who took over their lands. They would eventually settle in their ancestral homeland in Soumerca and form the Wolf Pack Nation.
This adaptation of the group introduced a number of named members, including Lupe's husband Lobo and their children Marcos and Maria. After the timeline was rebooted by the Super Genesis Wave, the Wolf Pack and its background remained basically the same. However, most of its members introduced by former head writer Ken Penders and copyrighted by him have since been removed from the comics due to his lawsuit against Archie Comics.
