Julie-su is a pink echidna from the Sonic the Hedgehog Archie comic series who originally debuted in the spin-off series Knuckles the Echidna. Like Knuckles, she is a descendant of the Knuckles Clan.


Julie-Su's first appearance in Knuckles the Echidna 4.

Originally a member of the Dark Legion, Julie-su disbanded from the group when she got separated from them when their base was destroyed by a self-destruct protocol activated by Kragok. She eventually discovered Knuckles leaving the base, and decided to follow him, believing her feelings to leave the Dark Legion. Although her initial confrontation with Knuckles was violent, the two developed a truce when it was discovered that there was a disturbance in the Marble Zone on the island. It was then that Julie-su aided Knuckles and Archimedes in investigating the Marble Zone ruins, discovering the city of Echidnapolis.


Julie-su is a former member of the Dark Legion, an opposing group to the Master Emerald guardians. She is part of their bloodline as Knuckles is part of the Master Emerald guardian bloodline. Her parents are Luger and Mari-su. She has a two half siblings named Lien-da and Kragok. She also is, controversially, distantly related to Knuckles, her love interest.


Julie-su's personality is not unlike that of Knuckles. She is tough and sometimes hot-headed. She also has a hard time trusting others.


Julie-su, while certainly not as strong as Knuckles, is a capable martial artist and a master of weaponry. She usually carries around a double-barreled laser gun. Like most Dark Legionnaires, she has cybernetic parts - most notably, a bionic quill. She has been observed using the quill to plug into machines to hack into them, as well as using it as a microphone with which to communicate with others.

Love life

Julie-su is the girlfriend of Knuckles. In the 25-years later series, she is shown to eventually settle down with Knuckles and has a daughter, Lara-su, with him.


Some fans speculate and sometimes compare Julie-su's similarities to that of the official SEGA character, Shade, another female echidna. Both are from families who oppose Knuckles' family. Also, they both were first introduced in disguise, leaving Knuckles to figure out their true identity later on. Though, there are some notable differences as Shade is from a completely different clan.
