Brenda is anthropomorphic hedgehog with royal yellow fur. She also has eyelashes, a green bow on the top of her head and bangs similar to her son Nicky's. She wears pink earrings like her daughter Anita and a red dress. In the cast picture of Sonic the Hedgehog Book, Brenda is also seen wearing a white frilly skirt and slingbacks.
- Brenda is one of three mother characters to be introduced for Sonic in various media, the others being Sonic Underground's Queen Aleena and Archie Comics' Bernadette Hedgehog.
