The Tree Spy is a character that appears in the Sonic Boom television series. He is an anthropomorphic wolf and the Lightning Bolt Society's spy and talent scout.

He has dark grey fur with peach skin on his long and slightly raised muzzle, a black nose similar to Sonic's, light blue eyes, sharp teeth, and a long bushy tail with a grey tip. His attire shown so far includes a tree disguise, white gloves with a round clip in the cuffs and green shows with rapping.


TV series

Season one

While out scouting, the Tree Spy saw Tails destroy an orchard and assumed he was evil. Reporting back to the Lightning Bolt Society, he and the group made Tails their leader. When Sonic and Amy broke in to get Tails, the Tree Spy was commandeered by Dr. Eggman, who arrived at the same time, to attack them. Failing that, the Tree Spy then swarmed Eggman with the other society members to get his autograph, allowing the heroes to escape.[1]

Spying on Eggman, the Tree Spy heard the doctor had abandoned his lair. Calling the Lightning Bolt Society in for an emergency meeting, the group seized the lair. However, as the Tree Spy fumbled around with the lair's systems with his friends, they launched several random attacks on Seaside Island. Noticing from surveillance that Team Sonic and Eggman were attacking them, the Tree Spy got an ambush ready with his associates, but got outsmarted by the unlikely allies and fled the lair.[2]

Observing Amy's sensitivity seminar, the Tree Spy reported to the Lightning Bolts Society that Sonic had retired and Team Sonic was going on a trip, thus leaving the Village theirs for the taking. The Tree Spy and his lodge would thus harass the villagers and set sheep on a stampede though town. However, their activities came to an end by Sonic when he returned. The Tree Spy and his associates were afterwards forced to attend Amy's seminar after Willy Walrus insulted the villagers.[3]

A while later, the Tree Spy helped his group set up a prank with a coin glued to the ground. Though Dave declined their offer to join them, the Tree Spy and the others would watch villagers fall for their prank.[4] The Tree Spy later joined the Lightning Bolt Society and other local rogues and villains at a meeting held by Eggman at his lair, who wanted them to form a team to beat Team Sonic. After some leadership disputes leading to team exercises, the Tree Spy helped encourage Eggman to lead the group so theey could prove themselves after Shadow the Hedgehog had left the group criticizing them. At the attack on Team Sonic, the Tree Spy coordinated Team Eggman's members, only to get constricted by Knuckles.[5]


The Tree Spy prides himself on his ability to pick the best crooks to join the association. While seeking recognition as a villain and reveling in amoral deeds and anarchy, the Tree Spy is not very competent as a bad guy and is an overall dolt. Generally well-mannered, he knows when to give proper greetings.[1][3]


Dr. Eggman

Like the other members of the Lightning Bolt Society, the Tree Spy admires Dr. Eggman and looks up to him as a model villain, even asking him to autograph his disguise when he met him.[1]




  • The Tree Spy keeps his costume on because its zipper is stuck.[1]
  • The Tree Spy uses the same character model as Wolfie.
