Ronnie Dribble is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He is an anthropomorphic dog and the former manager of the football team Shinpadzio.


Ronnie Dribble was the Shinpadzio manager during the 1998 season, in which the team got all the way to the Mobius Cup Final. However, between the Final and their previous game, the players all became unhealthy, lazy slobs, and Ronnie did not think they had the ability to challenge for the trophy. He asked Sonic the Hedgehog to join the team, but Sonic refused in the interest of fair play. Taking this as Sonic "Taking their side", he resorted to capturing Sonic, locking him in a Megatel-enforced cell, and copying his speed powers. Dribble gave a copy of Sonic's powers to the Shinpadzio players, however they were unable to control Sonic's super speed and ended up losing the game 22-0.

Horrified, Ronnie tried to escape before the fans could catch him, only to be caught by Sonic instead (Sonic had tunnelled out through the floor of the cell). Dribble defensively told Sonic that he was new to being a villain, but Sonic stepped aside for Dribble's Chairman, who fired the manager and prosecuted his for bringing the game into disrepute. Dribble was led away by police, in full view of the fans.[1]
