The Flicky is a creature that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. They are a kind of colorful Mobini bird race that inhabit various regions across Sonic's World. The Flickies are constantly captured by Dr. Eggman who uses them as batteries for his various Badniks.
Flickies are small and round-shaped birds with three-toed feet. They have a round-shaped head with two large eyes, a soft beak and hair tuffs on their head. Their wings are medium-sized compared to their body which is usually smaller than their heads and their tail consists of delicate feathers. Some Flickies also display markings like colored cheeks, differently colored bellies, and dark patches across the eyes.
Flickies generally come in four breeds which have their own distinct physics, colorations and hairstyles. However, these are not uniform looks for all Flickies as certain individuals can have their own unique plumages, eye colors and hair styles. These four breeds include:
- Light blue ones with pale yellow bellies. They also have a tassel in their hair above the forehead.
- Green, bulky ones with a big bun in the middle of the head and pale yellow bellies.
- Pink ones with pony tails on both sides of the head.
- Red ones with mullets and hair spikes on their forehead.
Like actual birds, the Flickies can only speak in a language consisting of squawks. Although recognized as non-sentient, the Flickies show at times striking insight. Peaceful and friendly, Flicky birds do not fear strangers.
Hunted and freed
Following Dr. Eggman's uprising, the Flickies have perpetually been kidnapped by the Eggman Empire to be used as power sources for the Badnik Horde employed by Eggman and his various Egg Army factions. Over the course of time, the Freedom Fighters and other parties have freed countless Flickies from their robot shells during their battles with Badniks.
Shattered World Crisis
- Note: From the readers point of view, this picks up from where the Flickies original timeline ended.
When the Shattered World Crisis began, the Flickies were amongst many of the animals affected by the crumbling landmasses caused by the planetary break-up. Bunnie D'Coolette herself flew into a group of Flickies meant for a wedding that was interrupted by the disastrous flooding at Harbor Heights, which was caused by the global crisis.
