A flock of Flickies, from Sonic the Hedgehog #5.

The Flicky is a creature that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. They are a race of bird animals that live on Sonic's world. The Flickies are constantly captured by the Eggman Empire, who uses them as batteries for their various Badniks.



The general Flicky is a small and rotund bird with a sky blue plumage and orange three-toed feet. They have round-shaped heads with two large black eyes, soft orange beaks and two upward-looking tuffs above their foreheads. Their wings are medium-sized compared to their bodies which are smaller than their heads and their tails consist of three tail feathers. In terms of markings they have pink cheeks, a dark blue patch across their eyes, and white bellies.


Peaceful and non-hostile, Flickies are not known to fight. As such, they are constantly captured by the Eggman Empire.

Powers and abilities

Being non-anthropomorphic birds, the Flickies are able to fly using their wings.


Imprisonment and freedom

Following the emergence of Dr. Eggman, the Flickies have perpetually been kidnapped by the Eggman Empire to be used as power sources for the Badniks employed by the Eggman Empire's associates.

After the War, some Flicky-powered Hoverbys and Antons would attack Sonic the Hedgehog and Espio the Chameleon in a mountainous region. However, the two heroes were able to defeat these Badniks, freeing the Flickies inside of them.[1]
