For the group also referred to as the "Resistance", see Freedom Fighters (Sonic Underground).

The Resistance, also known as Sonic's Army,[2] is a group that is slated to appear in Sonic Forces. It is a freedom fighting organization lead by Knuckles the Echidna[1] which was formed to liberate the world from the subjugation of Dr. Eggman after the Eggman Empire conquered most of the planet while Sonic the Hedgehog was missing in action.


After Sonic the Hedgehog disappeared,[4] Dr. Eggman began his conquest of the world, which left the Eggman Empire in control of 99% of the planet.[5] Sonic’s friends, who managed to escape from Eggman’s invasion, decided to back against Eggman by forming the “Resistance” army, with Knuckles the Echidna at the helm.[1][4]

Eventually, Sonic returned and joined the Resistance. Also joining the group was Classic Sonic, a counterpart of Sonic from another dimension,[5] and the Avatar, a rookie ready to take the call and push back Eggman to save the world.[6] During their war with Eggman, the Resistance would face the likes of Infinite, the leader of Eggman's army, and a number of old foes who had joined up with Eggman.
