Farmer Nige is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He is a bull and a farmer from the Plowright Zone, near the border of the Chemical Plant Zone. He wears a coarse brown blazer and a straw hat that covers his eyes. He also has a nose ring.


Toxic waste from the Chemical Plant seeped into Nige's soil through the river and mutated his vegetable crop into the Veg-Heads. Nige was captured by the Veg-Heads' leader, King Edward, along with Sonic the Hedgehog and Harry Mole. Sonic managed to free them all, but Nige was so irate at being humiliated by his own vegetables that he charged at them and was subsequently captured by the turnips. He was again rescued by Sonic.

When it was revealed that the Veg-Heads had only been following King Edward's orders, and that they really wanted to live in peace, Nige took them at their word and agreed to give them a plot of land of their own.[1]
