Smalls the Cat is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. He is an alternate Zone counterpart of Big the Cat from Moebius and the cell mate of Scourge the Hedgehog in the No Zone prison.
Appearance-wise, he looks no different than Big the Cat, except his colors are reversed and has a scar on his right eye. In Sonic Universe #29, it is shown that, like most other inmates, he bullies Scourge, one of his actions being to take Scourge's mattress and sheets; he also sleeps on the top bunk, another sign of superiority between cellmates.
- Smalls' name may be a reference to rapper "Biggie Smalls" and the alternate to Big's actual name.
- His name is also the direct opposite of Big.
- Originally, it was unknown which Zone Smalls came from, though it was commonly believed that he came from Moebius, considering Scourge's familiarity with him and his personality being a twisted version of Big's. This was confirmed by writer and Smalls' creator, Ian Flynn.
