Jimmy Whale, known as Jimbo by Stara, is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He is a gigantic whale from the underwater Zone of Trituna.


Jimmy Whale was one of a number of Trituna warriors that were sent up to the surface (specifically the Beanson Coast Zone) by Sharka Khan. He emerged after Sonic had defeated the other members of the team, serving as their secret weapon.[1] He and his team mates bragged about his great strength, but in the end he was defeated by a single Spin Attack from Sonic and knocked back into the water.[2]

Powers and abilities

Jimmy is one of the Trituna's strongest fighters, having been the heavyweight champion of Underwater Boxing for three years in a row, and apparently undefeated until he met Sonic the Hedgehog.
