TV series

Season one


The Tree Spy welcoming Tails.

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]


The Tree Spy reporting in on recent developments.

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 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 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 they 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]

Season two

Uniting with the Lightning Bolt Society, the Tree Spy prepared to help Dave get revenge at Meh Burger at its reopening for firing him by ruining the event, only to abandon the plan in favor of Meh Burger's party. There, he and the villagers got trapped in a force-field and sent towards space in Meh Burger by Eggman. Thanks to Team Sonic and Dave though, the Tree Spy was rescued, along with Meh Burger.[6]


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]
