Doctor Sorders is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. She is a tall white stork and therapist who uses hypnosis to help people improve their confidence.


Tails went to see her after becoming tired of people forgetting his name and thinking of him just as "the nice but boring one". He wanted to be just as cool as Sonic. Unfortunately, the treatment worked a little too well. Although he became far more confident, and gained his own fans who thought he was cool, he also became arrogant, lazy and egotistical.[1]

Doctor Sorders helped Sonic track Tails to the Tough Tea Club in the Gravel Pit Zone, where he was attempting to pick a fight with the local thugs. She used her abilities to snap Tails back to normal, but the thugs had already taken offense so she was forced to hypnotise them into peace-loving hippies.[2]


  • Doctor Sorders rides a penny-farthing bicycle with an L-plate attached.[2]
  • Her name is derived from the phrase "doctor's orders", meaning a set of instructions from a physician that a patient must follow for their own well-being even if they would normally object to following such instructions.
