The Wocky (ウッキー Ukkī?) is a creature in the Sonic the Hedgehog series which first appeared in the 16-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. They are a race of small monkey Animals residing in different places around Sonic's world, such as West Side Island, and are friends of Sonic the Hedgehog and his allies. They are known to have been targeted by Dr. Robotnik, who would use them as power sources for his Badniks and imprison them in Capsules for later use.



The general Tocky is a small light brown-furred and rotund monkey. They have a large head with two large black eyes, pink skin around their face, large round pink ears, and a small brown nose. They also have a smaller torso with a pink belly, long arms with pink-skinned four-fingered hands, stubby legs with long pink-skinned three-toed feet, and a long thin tail.
