Game appearances

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

S2 rat

The Mickies first appeared in the 16-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. In this game, the Mickies and the other Animals from West Side Island were captured by Dr. Robotnik to become power sources for Badniks that Robotnik needed to finish the Death Egg.[1] The Mickies can be found in Mystic Cave Zone where they pop out of destroyed Badniks or the opened Capsule at the end of the second Act. In the 2013 mobile re-release of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, they can also be found in Hidden Palace Zone.

Sonic Mania

In Sonic Mania, the Mickies reprise their roles from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 by being organic power sources for Dr. Eggman's Badniks again. The Mickies can be found in Studiopolis Zone, where they pop out of destroyed Badniks or the opened Capsule at the end of the second Act.

Trivia

  • Micky was the only Animal from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 which had no known official name or artwork. It received a designation in its reappearance in Sonic Mania, nearly twenty-five years later.
    • Illustrations for 8 of Sonic the Hedgehog 2's 12 Animals were featured in the art book Sega TV Game Genga Gallery (セガ TVゲーム 原画ギャラリー?). Illustrations for 7 of the 12 Animals were featured in Sonic Jam's Character House. Between the two of them, Micky is the only character whose illustration is missing.
  • Micky was possibly named after Mickey Mouse.

Notes

  1. While not listed in any instruction manuals, the internal files in the PC release of Sonic Mania refers to this Animal as "Micky".
