Picky Pre-SGW

A lone Picky, from Sonic the Hedgehog #226.

The Picky is a creature that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. They are a race of diminutive porcine Mobinis inhabiting Mobius.[1]



The general Picky resembles a small rotund domestic pig. 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 blue eyes, triangular ears, and small stubby snouts. Other features include relatively small torsos, thin and short arms with four fingers, stubby legs with long feet and two cloven for toes, and a short coiled tail each.


When reality was reset as a result of Operation: Clean Sweep, countless Pickies were captured by Dr. Eggman to be used as power sources for his Badniks or be trapped in Capsules. Several Pickies were freed by Sonic and his allies during their hunt for Eggman.[2]

Note: From this point, the Pickies' history continues from their new life in the altered timeline.
