Tone is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He is a anthropomorphic dog and the accomplice of Sid.


Sid mostly resembles a humanoid and slightly chubby Bulldog. He has mostly brown fur with white fur on his muzzle and between his eyes, which are quite small, flews with brown fur hanging over the sides of his muzzle, and rose ears. For attire, he has only been seen wearing an alien disguise which includes a white coverall with a round yellow collar, white gloves with yellow cuffs, black and yellow boots, and a green alien mask with big and completely black eyes and small antennas.


In the beginning, Tone and Sid were a pair of "losers." One day, however, they discovered an ancient chest full of gold jewelry in a cave in the Rocky Valley Zone. Rather than sharing it with others, Tone and Sid decided to keep it for themselves. To this end, they constructed a life-size model UFO out of papier-mâché and dressed up as aliens in an attempt to scare people away from the cave, so that they could then sell the gold bit by bit without raising suspicion.[1]

Before retrieving the gold, Tone and Sid found Amy Rose and Tekno the Canary arriving at the cave. Wearing their disguises, they tried to make the girls leave by shooting that them, but the two girls instead tunneled into the cave in hiding with Tekno's boring machine. Nevertheless, Tone and Sid soon found them, where they told them their plans before they would kill them. Amy however, managed to trick Tone and Sid into thinking that the gold was actually fake "geek's gold" from an old movie set called "Cave of Gold." Blaming each other for falling for fake gold, Tone and Sid began fighting until a stray shot from Tone's ray gun caused a cave-in which they all barely escaped. Now believing that the treasure was worthless, Tone and Sid decided to leave rather than dig it up, leaving it for Amy and Tekno to claim.[1]


Like Sid, Tone is very greedy, preferring to keep a chest full of gold to himself and Sid by the "finders, keepers"-rule rather than sharing it with the people of the Zone, and would go as far as to kill others to ensure it. While is he sneaky and thinks himself rather smart, Tone is easily gullible, as he immediately fell for Amy's claims that their treasure was fake.[1]

Powers and abilities


Tone held a red and green alien-like ray gun which could shoot yellow laser blasts. He has enough proficiency with it to keep both the battle-experienced Amy and Tekno pinned down.[1]



Sid is a long-time companion of Tone and worked together with him to ensure they could keep the treasure of gold they found to themselves. However, he does not fully trust Sid as when Amy tricked them into thinking the treasure was fake, he instantly blamed Sid for being gullible enough to fall for fake gold and it quickly escalated to a violent fight between them. Even as the cave came down on them, they continued to argue.[1]


  • Tone and Sid may be named after the SID tone sound chip, used for producing the chiptunes for the Commodoe 64.
