Cluck is a fictional character in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs. He was one of Dr. Ivo Robotnik's earliest Badniks.


When Robotnik's coup began, Cluck was on-board with Robotnik in his flagship. After Robotnik had successfully taken over Mobotropolis, Cluck became one of Robotnik's robots that the doctor trusted could handle his controls, which caused resentment from Snively.

Some time later, when Robotnik had created his Time-Immobilizing Ray, Cluck activated the device on Robotnik's order, which managed to freeze all Mobians in the Great Forest. However, the ray's effects were not long after undone by a young Sonic.

Cluck in the Sonic the Hedgehog Miniseries.

In Sonic Miniseries #0 in the Sonic the Hedgehog miniseries, when Sonic was tricked into delivering two hundred chili dogs to Robotnik so they could capture Uncle Chuck, Cluck answered the door when Sonic arrived at Robotnik's base, not truly expecting Sonic could actually deliver this order. Telling Sonic that he could get what was coming to him, Cluck slammed the door in Sonic's face and attempted to drop a checher ball on him, but missed.

Cluck did not appear in the Sonic the Hedgehog miniseries again after his first appearance. However, he was present on a flip-out poster in Sonic the Hedgehog #1, but did not appear elsewhere in that issue.
