Emerl (エメル Emeru?) is a minor character in the anime series Sonic X and its comic series published by Archie Comics. He was created many years ago to cause destruction.


Early History

At some point during Gerald Robotnik's life, Emerl was created by Gerald Robotnik and he documented about it in one of the professor's journals.[1] After Gerald passed away, Emerl was sealed in an unknown location for over fifty years.

Emerl Saga


Emerl being discovered by Bokkun.

Emerl was awakened by Bokkun to help him distract Sonic the Hedgehog while Doctor Eggman was being broken out of prison. He was found by Cream the Rabbit and Cheese and joins Sonic and co., particularly becoming friends with Cream.[3]

Being able to copy the moves of any opponent, Emerl proves a formidable opponent. He helped Sonic defeat the rampaging robots that were formerly household appliances. Later, Emerl competes in the battle tournament for a Chaos Emerald. After winning the tournament, he absorbs the Chaos Emerald; in turn restoring his old programming wiped from his defeat of Sonic. Emerl then goes on a rampage, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Knuckles the Echidna, Rouge the Bat and the rest of the gang throw everything at Emerl until Cream and Cheese decide to attack him.

They use moves too fast for him to copy and eventually defeat him, kicking him into the sea. The last thing he captures is Cream and Cheese crying, which restores his memory of his friendship with her. From this, Emerl learns how to cry. Thinking of his and Cream's friendship, he cries and then explodes.[4]

Archie Comics

In the Sonic X comics, Emerl seems to have mistaken Eggman for his grandfather, Gerald Robotnik and considers him to be his master. Emerl is also seeking his place in the world. He is disassembled by Eggman by Sonic X #11. Despite this, he makes an appearance in Sonic X #13.


  • In the TV series, Emerl was called "Emel" because of a mistranslated R.
  • At the end of the episode of Sonic X after Cream and Cheese defeat Emerl when he was underwater he was crying in tears, but in the Japanese version he was crying in oil.
  • In contrast to his game counterpart, who was capable of speech, this version of Emerl is silent. Thus, he communicates by chirps, beeps, buzzes and body language.
