|Alignment and character traits|
Vanilla the Rabbit is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series and its spin-off comics published by Archie Comics. She is an anthropomorphic rabbit and Cream the Rabbit's mother. Together with her daughter, their Chao and Gemerl, she lives in Mobotropolis on Westside Island.
Vanilla is a cream-colored rabbit with a white muzzle, brown eyes and a tuft of light brown/orange hair. She has light brown/orange markings around her eyes and on the ends of her lopped ears. She wears a long light pink/purple dress with a white trim and a fitted burgundy vest, an orange ascot, white gloves with gold cufflinks, and low-heeled burgundy shoes.
At the beginning of the Shattered World Crisis, Vanilla and King Acorn contacted Cream and the New Freedom Fighters through video-link after they had rescue the citizens of Station Square. There, Cream assures Vanilla that she was fine, and Vanilla told her to stay close to the Freedom Fighters and that she would look after Chocola with Gemerl's help. The two rabbits bid their goodbyes and Vanilla leaves the communication to the king.
Vanilla is very demure and polite, and very well-versed in manners and proper etiquette. She is very loving and kind, and is shown to be a very concerned parent, but will allow her daughter to go into dangerous situations if someone is there to hold her hand.
- Vanilla is named after the flavor extracted from the vanilla bean, commonly used in desserts.
- Vanilla is the only parent to a Sega character in the Archie Comics series who actually originates from the video games (and by extension from Sega themselves) instead of being created for the comic.
