Antoine Depardieu[1] is one of the main characters in the Sonic the Hedgehog animated series. He is a member of the Knothole Freedom Fighters who fight against the evil Dr. Robotnik. He has a crush on Princess Sally, and his romantic rival is Sonic the Hedgehog, who would make fun of Antoine for his shortcomings.


Antoine knew the other Freedom Fighters since childhood, and was with them when they were evacuated to Knothole after Robotnik's coup.[2] He has some connection to the Royal Guard.[3] According to Snively's computer files, Antoine had training as a squire in the "Delmont Province" during his youth.[4]


Antoine is clumsy, cowardly, self-important, and pompous. He is very French-oriented, and often has trouble speaking English. In order to win the affection of Sally, Antoine would pretend to be brave, but this always fails. He thinks of himself as Sonic's rival, but everyone else thinks that is too high of an opinion of himself. Antoine sometimes shows signs of jealousy towards Sonic's heroism and once tried to defeat Dr. Robotnik on his own to win Sally's respect, but it went wrong and Sonic eventually had to save him.

He is also extremely fastidious about his hygiene, clothes, and home.[5] He is a gourmand and connoisseur of fine foods, and to him witnessing fine dishes being prepared incorrectly is as bad as physical torture.[4] He is also superstitious, being frightened by ghost stories[1] and panicking when he heard that there was a curse.[6]
