The Special Zone is a location that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a Zone which once acted as a place of banishment for King Acorn and Walter Naugus when Dr. Eggman took over Mobotropolis.
The Special Zone is evidently a mystical dimension that is difficult to escape, as even Naugus proved unable to break free from it with his magic.
When King Acorn's royal adviser, Dr. Eggman, betrayed him and took over Mobotropolis, the dictator banished the overthrown King into the Special Zone along with the Royal Wizard, Walter Naugus, using the Star Posts. The New Freedom Fighters later managed to rescue King Acorn from the zone after taking back Mobotropolis.
- The Special Zone is one of the few Zones from before Worlds Collide known to have survived the effects of the Super Genesis Wave.
