Tux is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He is an anthropomorphic penguin and one of the Emerald Hill Folk.


Tux is a rotund and small anthropomorphic penguin. He has a round-shaped head with two large black eyes, a soft orange/yellow beak, small cheeks, a small round torso, medium-sized wings compared to his body, and two orange/yellow three-toed webbed feet. On top of his head, he also has a tuft of hair. For attire, he wears a small bow tie.

Depending on the artist, Tux's colors would vary between issues. Some issues would depict him with a blue belly and light blue feathers and hair,[1] others with a white belly, yellow feathers and yellow hair,[2] and one with light blue feathers, a white belly and yellow hair.[3]


In Dr. Robotnik's early days, Tux got caught up in the doctor's schemes to subjugate Mobius by being turned into an organic battery for a Badnik, but was freed by Sonic the Hedgehog.[1] After Robotnik took over the planet, Tux was put to endless work in Robotnik's factories until he was freed by Sonic.[2] Uniting with the Emerald Hill Folk, Tux resumed a fulfilling life alongside his fellow creatures,[4][3] although he would still get caught and turned into a Badnik only to be freed later.[5]
