Patch D'Coolette, formerly known as Anti-Antoine "Patch" D'Coolette, is Antoine D'Coolette's evil counterpart from Anti-Mobius. Patch was a member of the Anti-Freedom Fighters, but unlike his cowardly counterpart, Patch was evil, fierce and an expert warrior, but also had murderous tendencies, which drove him to attempt assassinations on Evil Sonic on more than one occasion. Patch was also the love interest of Anti-Sally and gained his nickname (now first name) from wearing an eye-patch, despite previously having perfect functionality of both eyes.
First Encounter with the Freedom Fighters
Like the other Anti-Freedom Fighters, Patch came to Mobius Prime and impersonated his goodly counterpart, terrorizing Knothole and ruining his good self's reputation. However, the Freedom Fighter soon engaged him and his compatriots, only to find themselves evenly matched. By switching opponents, however, the Mobius Prime group were able to send their enemies packing.
Following Scourge the Hedgehog's last escape from the No Zone, Patch attempted to use one of Anti-Rotor's inventions; the Zone-Link Generator, to banish his rival to Mobius Prime, allowing Patch to take over. Evil Sonic was too quick for him, however, and instead knocked him out, and sent Patch himself to Mobius-Prime, replacing his counterpart's position. Patch, upon realizing where he was, plotted that if he couldn't be leader on his world, he would be leader on this world. Patch used his counterpart's position in the Acorn Kingdom Army to gradually scheme and worm his way into King Maximillian Acorn's confidence, given his counterpart a new cold and ruthless-soldier look to it, impressing the King, while making his "friends" nervous of his new persona.
When the royal couple, King Max and his wife Queen Alicia Acorn, went on a tour to create a coalition against Doctor Eggman with other free nation-states, Patch was given the rank of Commander and lead the bodyguard detachment. Patch saw his time to strike was at hand, and began slowly poisoning the King with a poisonous substance native to his dimension, and also arranged to poison his counterpart's father; General Armand D'Coolette, with a much heavier dose via laced food.
Eventually, when negotiations with other nation-states failed, Patch made his move and dosed the King with a much heavier dose that left him bed-ridden and forced to return to Knothole. Patch also stopped the King's medication, which served to put him into a coma, but not before the King announced he would step down and allow Sally to take over, and wanted Patch to be her husband and King. Sonic the Hedgehog, upon hearing of this, tried to go to Castle Acorn to talk to Sally, but was stopped by a sword-wielding Patch.
With the King indisposed, Patch manipulated Sally's fragile emotional state to go through with the marriage. At the celebratory feast, Patch had Sonic arrested when he broke into the banquet hall, and later excused himself to finish King Max off with a final dose of the poison. Unfortunately, as he was mere steps away from the comatose Max, Sonic and Prince Elias Acorn arrived, where Elias announced that, as first-born, he would take the throne. Patch was internally furious, and put aside his plans to kill Max so he could kill Elias, and later Elias's wife and daughter, instead. Just after Elias's crowning, Patch tried to give Elias a dose of the poison via a hypodermic needle hidden in his uniform, which would serve to kill him later so Patch wouldn't be suspected. Sonic, however, noticed the needle and, after pushing Elias to safety, knocked Patch to the floor. Sonic and Patch fought, with Patch yelling Sonic was the one with the needle and he tried to kill him with it. Sonic, however, had by this time figured out Patch's real nature, and, with colossal strength, punched Patch across the hall and into unconsciousness. Sonic then used his own Zone-Link Generator to send Patch away to his home, while Antoine was rescued and brought back to Mobius.
Unfortunately, Patch would leave his mark on Mobius, as, while former-King Max was eventually brought out of his coma, he remained in a wheelchair once again, and Armand D'Coolette succumbed to the poison soon after his departure.
The Suppression Squad
When Scourge returned to Anti-Mobius with his new girlfriend Fiona Fox, he was driven by some choice words from his prime universe counterpart to invade Anti-Mobius and distinguish and set it apart from anything in the Primeverse. Within a matter of days, Scourge took over, and crowned himself King and made Fiona his Queen. Scourge then took over the Anti-Freedom Fighters, renaming them the Suppression Squad. Patch, like the other Anti Freedom Fighters, willingly put up with Scourge as king, likely due to it ensuring their own survival. Scourge sent the Suppression Squad to use a pair of stolen Globe Posts to travel to Mobius and launch a surprise attack on Freedom HQ. Upon the arrival of Sonic and Scourge themselves, a full pitched battle ensued. Initially, Patch suffered ferocious attacks courtesy of Amy Rose, due to his actions on Mobius while posing as his counterpart, but soon found his stride fighting his own counterpart, threatening to kill him like he did Armand. Antoine, as a result, resolved to fight Patch on his own, not wanting his new wife Bunnie to be killed the same way. Patch, Miles Prower and Boomer overheard this, and Patch, interested in the idea of taking away Antoine's purpose for living, restrained Bunnie and was poised to slit her throat, though Sonic stopped him in time. Despite failing, the actions of the Squad eventually drove the Freedom Fighters from Freedom HQ, though, according to Sonic, only temporarily.
Despite Scourge causing his patch to no longer be "for show", Patch and the others followed through on Anti-Miles' plan to get rid of Scourge with the help of the Freedom Fighters. Despite this they still proved no match for Scourge's might. It was only on Sonic's arrival that their true plan was revealed: To send both Sonic and Scourge to Moebius, and to seal their escape, at least until Scourge was beaten.
Patch was shocked to see Scourge in his super form and undefeated along with the rest of the Suppression Squad and Freedom Fighters. He joined the two groups attack on Super Scourge. During the fighting, Super Scourge asked Patch if Fiona had accompanied them, to which Patch called Scourge impossible and explained she hadn't come with them to Moebius. With this information obtained, Scourge threw Patch aside into Boomer.
Patch possesses many of the same qualities as Antoine, but lacks several crucial elements. Where Antoine is loyal to King, country, and friends, Patch is loyal only to himself. Antoine is somewhat cowardly in the face of danger and lacks a killer instinct, while Patch is willing to get rid of anyone to advance himself. Antoine is an honest gentleman, and while Patch can pull off the same display of manners, he is fully capable and adept at lying to get what he wants.
