Iblis's Minions are creatures in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a species of fiery monsters created by Iblis, and, by extension, Solaris. After Solaris, and subsequently Iblis, was erased from existence, Iblis's Minions were wiped out too.
Iblis's Minions are not born, but crafted from the Flames of Disaster, making Iblis and Solaris the only beings capable of creating them. While Iblis's Minions may lack in numbers, they make up for it in ferocity. Completely mindless, they exist only to cause destruction whenever they go.
Powers and abilities
The majority of Iblis's Minions possess limited pyrokinetic abilities, enabling them to breathe fire or manifest balls of lava to throw at foes. According to their type, Iblis's Minions may also possess wallcrawling skills, enhanced strength, flexible skin, or flight capabilities.
The enhanced variety of Iblis's Minions are made of a thicker magma material, making them tougher and more durable than then regular minions. The majority of them are also capable of projecting energy in the form of lasers and energy balls.
More of Iblis's Minions were created after Iblis was released in Sonic's time frame. During their reign, Iblis's Minions and their creator devastated the planet for over 200 years.
As multiple heroes worked toward ending the threats spawning Iblis's Minions, the creatures would keep attacking them, both in the past and future. Eventually, Blaze the Cat sealed the Iblis in the future and herself away in another dimension, ending the reign of Iblis's Minions in the future. However, when Solaris was reborn in the present, he recreated Iblis's Minions across several timelines to prevent Sonic the Hedgehog's allies from stopping his plans to destroy time. In the end, Solaris was erased from the timeline, along with Iblis's Minions too.
It is commonly believed that the purple variety of Iblis's Minions were created by Mephiles the Dark. However, no officially revealed sources suggest that they are spawned by Mephiles. Similarly, official guides categories them as Iblis's Minions.
