The Forget Me Knots are a group that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. They are a popular band of musicians living in New Mobotropolis. Also named themselves in homage to their original home of Knothole Village which has since been destroyed, and as a pun on the myosotis flower. The band's manager is lead singer Mina Mongoose's boyfriend, Ash Mongoose.

History

After the Forget Me Knots finished their world tour, they were hired by the people of New Mobotropolis to perform a concert to celebrate Sonic's defeat of Doctor Eggman and the supposed fall of the Eggman Empire. Just as the band began to play, Monkey Khan appeared from out of nowhere and said that the "heroes" of Mobius were acting like children and being selfish for celebrating their victory instead of trying to help out the rest of the world. (StH: #175, #200, #201)

Later, after the fall of the Iron Dominion, many in New Mobotropolis were now wary of Nicole's level of control over the city; harboring such feelings, the band decided to reinvent its sound in order to send a message and voice their concerns. (StH: #219, #220)

Trivia

  • The three male mobian band members are actually scrapped characters for the "Sonic the Hedgehog Band", who appeared in concept art prior to the 1991 release of the first ever Sonic the Hedgehog game, and were supposed to play music when a player accessed the "Sound Test" option of the game. The band members consisted of Sonic, an early version of Vector the Crocodile, Sharps the Parakeet, Max the Monkey, and Mach the Rabbit.
  • In Sonic the Hedgehog #134, it was shown that Mina was previously part of a band called the "Knothole Knuts".
