Ben "The Mutt" Muttski is a character in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. He is an anthropomorphic dog working as the apprentice to Charles the Hedgehog.
Muttski is a yellow-furred Mobian Dog with brown spots on his back and over his left eye, brown-tipped left ear and tail, and what appear to be either brown lower legs and feet or brown socks. He has blue eyes and sandals, and wears white gloves and a red bandanna around his neck.
Countdown to Chaos
Muttski and Charles eventually met Sonic and Tails when they arrived in the Wood Zone to see Antoine D'Coolette, and were greatly surprised by the change in Muttski-their memories of the previous reality were of him as a Mobini. Muttski and Chuck later fell victim to one of the tremors they were investigating, falling into a deep chasm. Fortunately, the trio of Freedom Fighters came to their aid, Antoine impressing Muttski in particular by chopping through several falling logs with his sword. Collecting their remaining samples of the strange energy they had found emerging from within Mobius, Mutt and Chuck departed for Spagonia to do further research.
Shattered World Crisis
In Spagonia, Muttski and Charles discovere their energy samples had corruptive and mutagenic properties. Shortly after the Shattered World Crisis began, Muttski was contacted by Sonic who asked him to patch him through to Charles. Despite visually shaken, Muttski complied, but returned soon after with horrible news: Charles and his colleague Professor Pickle had been kidnapped by Dr. Eggman's Badniks, along with all their research.
Muttski is an excitable, happy and upbeat person, and a firm friend of the Freedom Fighters. Even in the middle of mortal danger, he can quickly shift to a cheerful mood, like when he cheered as he was being pulled out a chasm by Tails and then right after was happily impressed at Antoine's performance to save them. Like a real dog, he tends to wag his tail when happy.
Muttski is a dedicated apprentice to Uncle Chuck. He is obviously very close to his mentor, and was distraught when Chuck was taken captive.
- It is possible that Muttski's name may be based on Ben Hurst's name, who was the main writer of the Sonic the Hedgehog TV series, from which Muttski originated.
