The Wheel of Misfortune is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It was a wheel of chance made by Dr. Ivo Robotnik to decide his next move against Sonic the Hedgehog and the Knothole Freedom Fighters.
The Wheel of Misfortune selected robbing an underwater bank, stealing a painting from the Mobius Museum of Art, and causing a "mindless act of terrorism" by making a huge explosion in a wooded area. Harvey Who had managed to find out about all these, however, and informed the Knothole Freedom Fighters about it who thwarted all three schemes. Enraged by his failed attempts, Robotnik captured Sonic the Hedgehog while he was at Renobotnik and tied him to the Wheel of Misfortune so his robots could fire lasers at him. But Sonic escaped at the last second thanks to Harvey, who managed to rig the wheel and install a camera to record Robotnik's tantrum on.
- The name is a spoof of the reality game show Wheel of Fortune.
