Giles Baboon is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He was one of two candidates, along with Derek Wombat, who ran for World Leader of Mobius following the fall of Robotnik's planet-wide dictatorship.


During the election campaign, Baboon made numerous ridiculous promises, including to lower the legal haircut limit to elbow level, to ban the wearing of white socks, and to encourage the forming of more boy bands, but refused to comment on difficult matters such as the victimisation of ant colonies. He chose to run for office so that he could abuse his power, and not because he cared about the people.

The day before the election, after an argument about homework for parents, he and Wombat put on armoured battle suits and started fighting in the middle of the street. Their suits were disabled by Sonic, who left them tied up unless they worked together to free themselves.

His aspirations of being World Leader ended when it was revealed that nobody in the election had voted for either candidate, and it was decided that each Zone should have its own leaders instead of a single person ruling the whole planet.[1]
