— Leroy the Turtle, "The Biggest Fan"
Leroy the Turtle is a character that appears in the Sonic Boom television series. He is an anthropomorphic turtle who works as a mail carrier and postal worker on Seaside Island. He also occasionally shows a profession as a DJ.
Leroy is a short anthropomorphic turtle, about as tall as Tails. He has a somewhat round brown shell with a tan underside and a few yellow segments on the back. His arms and legs are both rather stubby while his head is slightly large with a thick neck. His attire consists of a brown Stetson with a yellow band, a short white neckerchief and reddish-brown shoes.
Leroy was one of the many people nominated for the annual Awardy Award and was as such invited to the Awardy Awards at Mayor Fink's mansion. At this gala, Leroy helped Sticks, another nominee, with cutlery. At the end, Leroy was named the winner, but Dr. Eggman, who had cheated himself to be a nominee, was furious at the outcome and attacked Leroy and the others in vengeance. After Sticks and Team Sonic had dealt with Eggman, Leroy agreed with Sticks that she was the hero of the evening, though he intended to keep the Awardy Award, prompting Sticks to take it by force.
During a raid of the Swifty the Shrew army, Leroy welcomed Sonic the Hedgehog back to the Unnamed Village from his banishment with a DJ performance. While Knuckles served as deputy mayor, Leroy got him to approve a permit to built a tunnel in the Village, but ended up in an argument about his rights with other villagers with permits overlapping his. On New Year's Eve, Leroy served as the DJ for the New Year's Eve party in the Village Center. During this, Dr. Eggman used his Slow Motion Machine to slow down time long enough for him to beat Sonic in something before New Year, though Leroy could not see Eggman's victory as it happened too fast for him to notice it.
Leroy later met Eggman at the post office, who wanted a package he had held onto when Eggman was not there to receive it. When Leroy refused to hand it over unless regulations were followed, Eggman had his Decimator Bot attack him. Ever calm, Leroy was saved by Team Sonic. He then had Eggman follow the office's troublesome policy, stirring up more issues for the doctor before handing over the package. Continuing his job, Leroy later delivered a telegram to Amy Rose, only to get knocked over when Amy took his delivery. Once Leroy finally got back up though, he was knocked over again by an explosion from a stray missile. Leroy would later come to the Robot Battle Royale, where he saw Eggman steal Tails' Hypno-bot at the end.
Hearing that an asteroid would impact the earth, Leroy showed up to buy a spot in Eggman's bunker to ride out the impending apocalypse in. Although Leroy did not get a spot, Team Sonic would stop the asteroid. He later came to Career Day to give a speech about his career to the Village's youth. Leroy returned to the post office afterwards, where he would deal with Mark the Tapir, a Sonic fanboy trying to mail Sonic's postage-due package. Another time, Leroy was out delivering mail when he unknowingly splashed Orbot and Cubot with mud.
Leroy is normally formal and displays a rather calm demeanor; even when held in the grasp of Decimator Bot, he did not show the slightest distress. He also strongly follows his post office's policy, no matter how much trouble it means for others, like in the several cases where he could have given Eggman his package, but did not in accordance to the rules. Even when threatened, he refused to disregard the rules. He also has a quite profound knowledge about formal table settings.
Contrary to his mild demeanor, Leroy is a poor winner and somewhat of a glory hog. He openly gloated to the other nominees after winning the Awardy Award and refused to give it up even after admitting there was someone who deserved it more than him.
Should Leroy fall on the back of his shell, he will be rendered nearly immobile. Although he can get on his feet on his own, the effort is exhausting and takes a great deal of time.
