Mighty the Armadillo is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series and its spin-off comics published by Archie Comics. He is an anthropomorphic eastern armadillo who travels with Ray the Flying Squirrel. He is a known ally of Sonic the Hedgehog, Knuckles the Echidna, and the Chaotix.

Appearance

Mighty is a black-and-peach armadillo with a red shell. He has a black nose that is somewhat longer and more pointed than Sonic's and he has light blue eyes. For attire, he wears large black, red, and brown boots, black, fingerless gloves with red lining the finger holes and buckled brown cuffs, with bandages wrapped around his lower arms.

History

Early Life

A student of Moss the Sloth, Mighty previously worked with Knuckles the Echidna and the Chaotix. He and his friend Ray the Flying Squirrel went on a number of adventures together, with one such adventure taking them far away from Angel Island at the time of the Shattered World Crisis. When the planet broke up, Mighty and Ray did their best to help out, but Mighty felt frustrated by his inability to do more.

Run In with Thunderbolt

Having completed his training with Moss, Mighty was eager to put his new found speed and power to good use. He soon got the chance when, while in the Rocky Jungle Zone of Soumerca, he and Ray came across their old friend Sonic the Hedgehog being attacked by E-113 Xi. Ray flew Sonic to safety while Mighty dispatched the E-100 Series robot handily, and the friends soon exchanged greetings. Mighty also greeted Sonic's companions Princess Sally and Amy Rose, the former noting that she regarded him and Ray as honorary Freedom Fighters. Mighty also guessed that the trio were on a mission to help repair the damage to the planet. The pair also introduced Sonic and the gang to Mighty's mentor Moss, who sensed a darkness in Sonic that the Hedgehog had been attempting to deal with by himself. Unfortunately, the five friends were soon set upon by the Soumerca Egg Army and their Egg Boss, Thunderbolt, while attempting to recover a Chaos Emerald seized by the villains. The resulting confrontation saw the heroes hit with electrocuting projectiles that had the effect of completing Sonic's transformation into Sonic the Werehog.

Personality

Mighty is a heroic individual who wants to help everyone he can, not unlike Sonic. However, Mighty's great strength is a source of some paranoia, as he is afraid of losing control and hurting someone. This provides him with something of a temper, which grows more prevalent when he feels helpless. Like Sonic, he tends to take more upon himself than is sensible, though he also appears to possess a high sense of decorum.

Powers and Abilities

Mighty possesses incredible super strength, enough to let him hurl E-113 Xi with one hand and match even the strength of Sonic the Werehog. He is also quite durable as he could a severe beating from Sonic the Werehog and get right back up and continue fighting him on even grounds.

Mighty can also curl up into a ball for defense.
