The Ricky 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 squirrel Mobinis inhabiting various portions of Sonic's World. The Rickies are constantly captured by Dr. Eggman, who uses them as batteries for his various Badniks.
The general Ricky resembles a brown-furred and round-shaped tree squirrel. Although classified as animals, their anatomy is slightly humanoid. They have large heads with small torsos, arms with four-fingered hands, thick yet stubby legs with long feet, a long and bushy tail, greyish blue eyes, and triangular ears on top of their heads. Additionally, they have peach fur around their faces and on their bellies. Other features include cheek tufts, small black noses, and hair bangs on their foreheads.
Hunted and freed
Following Dr. Eggman's uprising, the Rickies have perpetually been kidnapped by the Eggman Empire to be used as power sources for the Badnik Horde employed by Eggman and his various Egg Army factions. Over the course of time, the Freedom Fighters and other parties have freed countless Rickies from their robot shells during their battles with Badniks.
