Chuck Thorndyke (チャック・ソーンダイク Chakku sōndaiku?) is a character that appears in the anime series Sonic X and its comic series published by Archie Comics. He is an elderly scientist and inventor, as well as the paternal grandfather of Christopher Thorndyke.


Much in the same way that Chris bonds with Sonic the Hedgehog during the latter's stay with the family, and the maid Ella bonds with Cream the Rabbit and Amy Rose, Chuck forms a close friendship with Tails, who shares his love of inventing and mechanics. It was partially thanks to Chuck that the X Tornado was made, as well as the rescue of Cream and Cheese in episode 2.


Chuck is good-humored and witty, and means well for his friends and family, but circumstances can cause him to behave eccentrically. He is always helping Chris, Sonic and their friends out whenever they need help.

For all his oddities, however, Chuck is a wise man, who, very much like Tails, uses his intellect when faced with problems.





  • He bears an uncanny resemblance to Christopher Lloyd's character Emmet "Doc" Brown from the Back to the Future trilogy and animated series spin-off.
  • His name is quite possibly a reference to Sonic's uncle Charles Hedgehog (more commonly referred to as Uncle Chuck) from Sonic the Hedgehog television series, Sonic Underground, and the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-off comics.
  • Chuck was very young when his son, Nelson was born because Chuck is 61 in Series 2 and Nelson is 49 years old in Season 2. He was only 12 years old.
