Trevor Burrow the Mole[1] is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. He is a mobian mole and a member of the faux Freedom Fighter group, the Desert Raiders. In reality, he is an associate of Egg Boss Nephthys the Vulture to keep the Midesta Egg Army at bay.

Concept and creation

Trevor is modeled after Knuckles the Echidna.[1] According to Ian Flynn, he is based off a golden mole.[2]


Trevor is a large-bodied Mobian mole about Big the Cat's size and is quite muscular. He has purple fur with greyish peach skin on his front torso and muzzle. He also has long fur on his head which he keeps together in a short ponytail. For attire, he wears white gloves with green cuffs, a black scarf, black and green shoes, and green shades. On his wrists he also has thin black blades resembling trowels.



Inspired by the New Freedom Fighters, Trevor, Spike the Porcupine, and Sonar the Fennec formed a team of Freedom Fighters at Shamar, defending the settlement from the Egg Army.[3]

Shattered World Crisis

Trevor and his team later "rescued" Sonic, Antoine D'Coolette, Big the Cat, and Chip from an ambush against the Midesta Egg Army. After Trevor and his team drove off the Egg Soldiers, they were greeted by Sonic himself, whom Trevor humbly greeted back.[3] Trevor aided the Freedom Fighters in saving Ehsan, but was soon revealed to be allies of Egg Boss Nephthys the Vulture.[4] Later, he watched Sonic and Sally's broadcast with his team.[5]

Powers and abilities

Trevor bursting

Owing to his species, Trevor is an excellent digger and can burrow underground at an extremely fast rate which is great for surprise attacks. He is also quite physically strong, destroying a Badnik Horde Commander with a single uppercut.[3] Despite being blind, Trevor has extremely accurate senses which let him interact with his surroundings with perfection.[3][4]


  • Coincidentally to how Trevor was modeled after Knuckles, Knuckles was referred to as a mole in Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie.
  • It is implied via context that Trevor is blind.[3] This was later confirmed by an editor note in Sonic the Hedgehog #279.
  • Trevor's sunglasses appears to be a reference to the shades worn by Kamina from Gurren Lagann. Further enforcing this similarity is how Trevor burrows through the ground in a drilling motion, which is a common theme in the anime.
