Mighty the Armadillo is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He is a member of the Chaotix Crew. As with the other members of the team, Mighty is a resident of the Special Zone.

Mighty was introduced alongside Vector, Charmy, Espio and Nack the Weasel in the "Knuckles: Total Chaotix" storyline (beginning in Sonic the Comic #53).


Mighty is portrayed as a strong and brave character whose main flaws are his lack of forethought and tendency to forget his own strength. For instance, when Knuckles and Chaotix attempted to break into the Brotherhood of Metallix's Egg Fortress, Mighty smashed in through the hull and set off several alarms, jeopardizing the mission.[1] He once punched a dinosaur through the wall of the Chaotix headquarters.[2]

In this continuity, Mighty has proved to be a valuable asset to the team on a number of occasions and is one of the top fighters in the comic, running very close to Knuckles, making him an ally of Sonic the Hedgehog. He has an intense yet friendly rivalry with Espio. They remain close friends and allies, but neither one will ever admit the other is better and have gotten into some heated arguments and occasional fight over the matter. For example, they sometimes make bets as to which of them can take out the most enemies during a fight,[3] or argue about which of them hit an opponent harder.[4]

As with the rest of the crew, he often vents his frustrations on Charmy, though not in a physical manner.

Aside from Charmy, he is the only member of the Chaotix to have his family life revealed. He is the son of a senile former superhero known as Blockhead Bill, who is constantly getting into trouble by mistaking random people (including Sonic) for his old enemies, much to Mighty's exasperation. Bill's partner is Society Max, a similarly-elderly lizard who uses a serum to turn into a mighty dinosaur; unlike Bill, Max remains quite smart and affably points out when his friend is being daft.[5]
