Chuck Thorndyke (チャック・ソーンダイク Chakku sōndaiku?) is a character the anime series Sonic X and its comic series published by Archie Comics. He is the paternal grandfather of Christopher Thorndyke. He is a scientist and inventor.
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, but acts eccentric when overexcited. He is always helping Chris, Sonic and the gang out whenever they need help.
