Buffalo 397

Buffalo Three-Ninety-Seven is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a powerful, handheld laser weapon used by the Kingdom of Acorn's Royal Secret Service.


According to Geoffrey St. John, "It's lightweight, fits comfortably the palm of your hand, utilizes a Double-A Power Cell, has an automatic targeting Sight-O-Scope and can deliver on impact the effect of a brick hitting a plate glass window!"

Commander Geoffrey St. John demonstrated it while training new recruits, using it as an example of the type of powerful weapon used by the Secret Service (unlike the Freedom Fighters, who never used weapons like it).[1]
