Rouge the Bat is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. She is an alternate version of Rouge from the In Another Time, In Another Place Zone.
Rouge is identical in appearance and customary wardrobe to her Prime Zone counterpart. However, during the Olympics, she wore a track suit with a number of elements shared with her usual attire. White boots lined with pink replaced her usual high heels, while she retained her usual gloves. The black track suit covered all the rest of her body except for her head and wings, which stuck out through the back. A white belt encircled her waist, while her front was decorated by her trademark heart symbol, which featured the addition of a line that ran up to her neck.
Rouge was one of the various friends and allies of Sonic who gathered to celebrate his birthday. However, the party was interrupted by the arrival of the Time Eater, who scattered Rouge and the others through various portals.
Following the Time Eater escapade, Rouge rejoined her friends to participate in the Olympic Games, joining Amy Rose and Blaze the Cat in the hurdle race. However, the trio were then captured by Dr. Eggman, who turned the hurdles they were to jump into portals that dumped the three girls into a giant Prison Egg. Fortunately, Sonic managed to rescue them after harnessing the spirit of the Olympics and defeating Metal Sonic.
