|This character exists primarily or exclusively within the Sonic Underground continuity.|
Information in this article may not be canonical to the storyline of the games or any other Sonic continuity.
He is a large, orange-brown, muscular dingo with green eyes and yellow hair although it is green in the comic, and wears green shorts, purple glasses, brown gloves, a brown belt with silver buckle and gold earring. He speaks with a stereotypical Australian accent. His left leg is also roboticized. He does not have a bounty hunter emblem like Sleet does.
Dingo was originally an independent contractor with Sleet, but later he was hired by Doctor Robotnik, along with Sleet, to hunt down the royal family, namely Sonic, Manic, and Sonia. Dingo quickly developed a crush on Sonia, which she often uses to her advantage. Despite their efforts, Dingo constantly fails at his missions with Sleet and only rarely succeeds. He does, however, appear to get away from being roboticized no matter how angry Robotnik becomes.
Dingo is very gullible, doing whatever Sleet tells him to do, and frequently does not understand an insult or parts of a sentence. An example of Dingo's stupidity is when Sleet hunts down the Queen Aleena ferry in Port Mobius. He succeeds in finding it using a submarine's periscope and declares it a 'sitting duck', but Dingo misunderstood him and asks why they are going to sink a duck. Another example would be when Sleet says, "In your case that would be an improvement", which is an insult to Dingo saying that he would look better roboticized. Dingo foolishly answers, "Really? Thanks!" not knowing that Sleet's meaning was rather sardonic in nature.
Despite (or even due to) his incompetence, however, Dingo can be quite dangerous. However, while, Dingo's outward demeanor denotes a tough person, deep inside he is quite soft.
Sometimes during his transformations, Dingo can be heard to say, "Oh, not again!", implying that he does not enjoy shape-shifting.
Powers and Abilities
Dingo's only real usefulness is in his odd ability to change shape. When Sleet presses the button on his remote, Dingo can turn into any solid object or life form. Such items he has disguised himself as include a chili dog stand, a fly, a baby, a venus flytrap, an old man, other people, a basket and a woman. Despite this, he consistently retains his orange and yellow colors and voice patterns. It is shown that he has no control over what he turns into.
He has also displayed a degree of above average strength, with effort even being able to bend iron bars. He has also been shown to be an adequate pilot and marksman, capable of piloting his and Sleet's trademark vehicle.
- He cannot pronounce the word independent.
- It is never stated why Dingo's leg is roboticized. The only assumption being that it was roboticized prior to meeting Dr. Robotnik.
