A Tocky in Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

The Tocky (トッキー Tokkī?) is a creature in the Sonic the Hedgehog series which appeared in the 16-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. They are a race of turtle Animals native to West Side Island and are friends of Sonic the Hedgehog and his allies. During Dr. Robotnik's time on their island, the Tockies were sought by the doctor, who would use them as power sources for his Badniks.



The general Tocky is a small turtle with peach-colored skin and a round green shield with a grooved orange belly section. Although recognized as animals, the Tockies show physical humanoid traits and are capable of standing on their hind legs. They have flippers for limbs (the hindflippers which resemble stubby feet when standing up), a large round head with two large black eyes, and a beak-shaped mouth.


Over the course of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, the Tockies and their fellow Animals from West Side Island were kidnapped by Dr. Robotnik and used as power sources for his Badnik workers which Robotnik needed to finish the Death Egg.[1] The Tockies can be found in Sky Chase Zone where they pop out of destroyed Badniks.


  • Tocky has a walking animation, which cannot be seen in the game, since Sky Chase Zone does not have any kind of surface for them to walk on. However, Tockies are seen walking normally in the additional credits sequence for the 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 port for the Nintendo 3DS.[2]
  • Near the end of Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie, Robotnik launches rabbit and turtle missiles, where the turtle missile was unsuccessful and being described by doctor as another design failure. The turtle missile bears a heavy resemblance to Tocky.
