Anita (アニタ?) is a character in the Sonic the Hedgehog serialized manga published by Shogakukan. She is a young hedgehog and the daughter of Brenda and Paulie. Anita has a tomboyish attitude and she is usually seen around her brother, Nicky, and Amy.

In the Shogaku Ninensei stories, Anita is a young, anthropomorphic hedgehog with royal yellow fur. She also has eyelashes and wears green round earrings. Her other attire includes a pink sleeveless shirt, a frilly skirt, and regular sneakers with shoelaces, tips and soles.

Anita's appearance in both the CoroCoro Comics Special and Shogaku Gonensei stories are similar, though she does not wear a skirt at all. However, she has head quills similar to Nicky's. Her shirt is also black and white, and like other characters, she wears white gloves.


Anita is a good friend of Amy and at times acts like her little sister. She likes to make fun of people in an innocent way. Contrary of her brother, she seems to have more nerves. When she was captured by Dr. Eggman, she was not only unafraid but also amused at how she could push around Eggman's robots to do whatever she wanted.[1]


  • Although Anita is shown wearing a pink sleeveless shirt only in the Shogaku Ninensei stories, the cast picture from the Sonic the Hedgehog Book (see picture above left) shows her dressed with a headband, jacket and a shirt with an "T" printed on it.
