Manic the Hedgehog
Species: Hedgehog
Gender: Male
Series: Sonic Underground
First seen: "Beginnings"

Manic the Hedgehog is a 15 (16 after Mobodoon) year old fictional character in the animated series Sonic Underground. He is voiced by Jaleel White, who also does the voices for Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonia the Hedgehog, Manic's siblings. His singing voice is provided by Tyley Ross.


Manic was still a baby when he was separated from his mother, Queen Aleena. The queen left Manic in a basket at a doorstep on one night, where a thief stole the basket which Manic was in and brought it to Farrel.

Farrel raised Manic as a thief. One day, while Manic and Farrel were packing to leave the sewers, when Manic heard some music.

Manic told Farrel that he would be back, as Manic went off to find where the music came from. Manic then met his brother and sister. Unfortunately when Manic returned, he found out that Farrel was gone (and roboticized).

The Oracle of Delphius gave Manic and his sibs a map. The map lead them to a forest. Manic and his sibs trained in a forest and then was sent to complete their training in the City Of Clouds. But it was their journey to warn the Oracle that brought them together and got their powers permanently.

From that day onwards, Manic and his sibs formed a band called the 'Sonic Underground' and fight against the evil Dr. Robotnik. They made a vow their mother, Queen Aleena would be found, someday.
