Echo the Dolphin is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. She is a mobian dolphin and a lieutenant in Meropis' Meropis City Guard.
Echo is a humanoid dolphin of average height. She has purple skin and a white muzzle with a rounded shout and purple dots on her chins which resemble freckles. She has a dorsal fin on the top of her head, the back of her head and her regular back, a caudal fin as tail and has no toes or nostrils. As attire, she wears the standard Meropis City Guard uniform which include black shirts and shorts, green additional garments and a golden helmet adorned with shells. She also wears a shell bracelet around her right ankle.
When Echo and the Meropis City Guard came to their usual morning visit to the Eusebes Temple during the Shattered World Crisis, they found the Knothole Freedom Fighters–Sonic the Hedgehog, Amy Rose, and Rotor the Walrus–trespassing on their sacred grounds. Once it was decided that most of the Freedom Fighters, Coral the Betta and Razor the Shark would be taken their king and queen, Echo was ordered to stay at the temple to keep an eye on Rotor and Pearly the Manta Ray, which she did accordingly. Later the same night, when the shield protecting Meropis disappeared, Echo and the Meropis City Guard were forced to protect the city and evacuate the citizens when it was invaded by Dark Gaia Creatures.
Echo is very dutiful and dedicated, though maybe to the point of being slightly uptight. She also takes her job very seriously as she followed and upheld Captain Striker's orders without question. However, she does not do too well out of her element.
Powers and abilities
Echo carries a trident which is a standard weapon for the Meropis City Guard. In addition for melee combat, this weapon can shoot out a thin laser from its points.
- Echo's name and species is a reference to the title character and protagonist from the video game series Ecco the Dolphin published by Sega, which was a male, non-anthropomorphic dolphin.
