Zeena is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. She is a Zeti and a member of the Deadly Six. She has currently been turned into a Zombot after being infected by the Metal Virus.


Zeena is a green female Zeti, with a slender upper body that curves out into fairly wide hips. Zeena's upper body is lime green with two black stripes around her waist, while the lower half of her body is black. Zeena's small feet are tipped by small lime green claws, with a third smaller one on each heel. Zeena's tail is thin and curly, ending in a chameleon-like swirl (similar to Espio's tail). Her wrists have black stripes around them while her five-fingered hands are black, each digit tipped by a hot pink nail.

Zeena has long green hair that parts to the right, extending down to her lower legs. On the left side of her head Zeena has a single curved horn with an alternating black and hot pink coloration. Her circular eyes are surrounded by black rings, while her eyes are blue with yellow sclera and yellow-orange eyelids, and her lips are orange.



At some point in the past, a man named Dr. Eggman invaded the Lost Hex with his many Badniks. He enslaved Zeena and the other members of the Deadly Six with an ancient relic. Soon, she was freed unwillingly by Sonic the Hedgehog and thus exacted her revenge with her team by taking control of Eggman's Badniks with their electromagnetic powers. The Deadly Six were later stopped by Sonic, relinquishing their control of the Badniks.[3]

The Last Minute

Zavok later assembled the entire team to inform them of Dr. Starline's offer to help handle Dr. Eggman's crisis on the world below and how they would immediately betray him, though Zeena did not pay much attention to him. She initially showed dislike for the idea of going back to Eggman as it could very well be a trap. Zavok immediately snapped at this, saying that since they underestimated the doctor the first time, they were now well prepared. Zavok planned for them to punish Eggman for their humiliation, destroy Sonic for defeating them, and then destroy their world below. Soon enough, the Deadly Six were brought onboard Eggman's Faceship via Starline's Warp Topaz.[4][5]

All or Nothing


Zeena takes control of Sunset City, from Sonic the Hedgehog #25.

Upon seeing the Deadly Six, Eggman immediately sent Metal Sonic to attack them. Zavok swiftly used his electromagnetism to control the robot and tauntingly reminded Eggman how they were able to control robots. When Starline revealed the Cacophonous Conch in his possession, Zazz and Zeena attacked him, only to be stopped in their tracks when Starline blew into the conch. With the Zeti seemingly immobilized, Starline walked up to Zazz and ordered him and his fellows to get back in line, unaware that the Conch's effects rapidly wore off after it was no longer being blown. Once Zazz saw that Starline had left an opening after using the conch, he headbutted him which allowed Zeena to take the conch and give it to Zavok. With Eggman and Starline defenseless, Zavok commanded Metal Sonic to attack them; however, Starline hurriedly opened a Warp Portal that transported him, Eggman and Metal Sonic away. Zazz expressed frustration at this, but Zavok told him that they needed to refocus their attention for now. Noting that they were now left with the Faceship, the means to create Eggman's Metal Virus, and the fabled Chaos Emeralds, Zavok decided to remove an Emerald and place it on his chest to empower himself with it. He was met with praise for his intuition by Orbot, who claimed that he and Cubot were too spineless to turn on the Deadly Six; after Zavok commanded that the robot take them to the largest known pockets of survivors, Orbot complied but not before telling them that he will log their orders to keep them well coordinated. With this, Zavok plotted out the Deadly Six's new plan; each of them would take one Chaos Emerald to be empowered by so that they can control thousands of Zombots around the world instead of random, shambling masses. He planed to bring utter devastation to the world that Eggman and Sonic had been fighting over for so long; once every living thing had been infected and neither party had anywhere else left to run, they would give them mercy of a slow end by the Zombots themselves. Zeena took the red Chaos Emerald and set out to Sunset City. There, she took control of several Zombots and had them carry her around with a makeshift high chair. She found immense disappointment in the city's shopping offers, believing that it was a wasteland before she arrived. When Zeena asked an uninfected citizen why the shopping was not any better, he replied that nothing could suit something as radiant as her. She found this to be a good answer and told him that he would be spared for another hour, while the rest of them were to praise Zeena's name.[2]

Later, while Zeena had a few Zombots fan her, Cream the Rabbit arrived and demanded her Chaos Emerald; the Zeti instead took control of the robot that accompanied her, Gemerl, joking that Cream looked alone.[1]


Zeena is known to be sassy and quite sarcastic when talking to others. She does not take as much interest in violence as the other members of her team but will still participate in fighting alongside them. She is quite egotistical and can be slightly swayed if someone compliments her. Since she thinks so highly of herself, Zeena tends to underestimate those who oppose her. Like all of the other members of the Deadly Six, she is a malicious character that will employ the use of violence when she cares to and does not care for the well being of anyone other than her fellow Zeti. Zeena is also a very vengeful person and has no qualms in enslaving or destroying an entire world just to take revenge on someone that upset them, as evidenced when she and the other members of the Deadly Six tried to turn every individual on Sonic's world into Zombots with the Metal Virus just because they despised Dr. Eggman and Sonic.[2][3][4] Zeena only finds true fear from her leader, Zavok.[4]

Powers and abilities

Zeena has the ability to control machinery with her mind.[3]


Like all other Zeti, Zeena's powers are greatly inhibited when the Cacophonous Conch is blown, which causes her great pain.[2]
