Flicky IslandMedia:Sonic3D MD US manual.pdf[1]Media:Sonic3D Sat US manual.pdf[2] (フリッキーアイランド)Media:Sonic3D Sat JP manual.pdf[3], also referred to as Flickies' Island, is the setting for Sonic 3D: Flickies' Island. The island is presumably not too far removed from South Island, as Sonic occasionally stops by on his travels to check up on his friends, the Flickies: brightly coloured birds which have been seen all over Sonic's world since the very first game.

However, the Flickies found on this island are special. The birds are native to another dimension, and travel to and fro between the worlds by means of Giant Rings. While such metaphysical chicanery doesn't faze Sonic, the megalomaniacal Doctor Ivo Robotnik becomes very interested in the Flickies' powers after learning about the Island. Eggman resolves to roboticize the interdimensional creatures, and harness their strange abilities to further his search for the Chaos Emeralds - thereby setting in motion the events of Sonic 3D.

Regions

As with South Island, Flicky Island manages to pack an impressive array of facilities and climates inside its coastline. The only game which has visited Flicky Island is Sonic 3D, and all its levels are sited there:

In other media

Sonic the Comic

In the Fleetway Sonic the Comic series, Dr. Robotnik was ousted from power as the dictator of Mobius in Issue #100. The Doctor fled to Flicky Island (referred to in this media as Flickies' Island), where he constructed a secret laboratory and developed a new line of deadlier Badniks, intending to regain control of the planet.

It was later revealed that Flickies' Island (specifically Rusty Ruin Zone) had once been inhabited by the Drakon Empire - also responsible for the Giant Rings present on the island. After making a deal with the interdimensional Drakon, Robotnik ran his operations from Flickies' Island and attacked Mobius repeatedly with his new model Badniks. His base was destroyed in Issue #132.

Sonic the Hedgehog (Archie)

In the Archie comic series, and a little closer to the storyline of Sonic 3D, Sonic responsed to a distress call from Flickies' Island, arriving to find that Robotnik had captured the island, roboticized the Flickies, and was in the midst of a search for the Chaos Emeralds. Sonic soon found out that the robot Flickies were vulnerable to seawater, and reverted to their flesh and blood forms on contact. Sonic raced through the Zones and defeated Robotnik, who fled.
