The Picky is a creature that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. They are a race of small pig animals that live on Sonic's world. The Pickies are constantly captured by the Eggman Empire, who uses them as batteries for their various Badniks.
The general Picky resembles a rotund domestic pig slightly less than half a meter tall. However, they are remarkably humanoid in anatomy, even standing on two legs. They have light pink skin and possess large round heads with two large black eyes, triangular ears, and small stubby snouts. Other features include relatively small torsos, thin and short arms with fingers, stubby legs with long feet and two cloven for toes, and a short coiled tail each.
