Gizoids are a group mentioned in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. They are a line of androids created by an ancient civilization.


The Gizoids were created by the mysterious "Fourth Great Civilization" four thousands of years ago, and all but disappeared along with their creators. One such android was eventually found by Gerald Robotnik, and later came into the possession of his villainous grandson Dr. Eggman. Found by Sonic the Hedgehog, the android was dubbed Emerl and befriended Sonic and several of his allies before being destroyed as a result of one of Dr. Eggman's schemes.[1] Emerl's data was later salvaged to built Gemerl, who after being used in another of Eggman's schemes was reprogrammed to have Emerl's personality.[2] Gemerl subsequently took up residence near Mobotropolis, where he lived with the family of Vanilla the Rabbit.[3] He would later be called upon to help defend the city from threats such as M'egga Man.[4]
