The Arena of Judgement is a location that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. It was an arena that the Drakon Empire used as part of its trial-by-combat system, in which the defendant would be forced to battle a Prosecutor to the death.


Sonic was forced to fight a Knuckles Metallix in this arena[1] when he was accused of destroying a Drakon Sentinel (in reality, he had merely been present when the Sentinel self-destructed).[2][3] With Tails' help, Sonic managed to defeat the Metallix, and Emperor Ko-Dorr pronounced him innocent despite Robotnik's protests.[4]
