Form of Group and Statistics

Mercenary group




The Destructix are a group of criminals and mercenaries who have faced off against Sonic the Hedgehog and his allies at various times. The team's lineup and leadership have changed frequently over time; it originally consisted of all four members of the Fearsome Foursome (who felt a new name was needed after their numbers grew), Drago Wolf, and Sleuth "Doggy" Dawg. This core group also served together longest, even becoming Robians together, thus briefly becoming the Mecha Destructix. Other members came and went, including Kodos, Uma Arachnis, Nack the Weasel, and Snively Robotnik. As mercenaries, they have found themselves serving as enforcers for various clients, continuing on after Fiona Fox took command. With Scourge the Hedgehog recently becoming their new leader though, they appear to have begun working towards his own private goals.


Formation and Early Activities[]

The six core members of the Destructix were brought together at Devil's Gulag prison after each of them had been defeated and captured by the Freedom Fighters and/or Chaotix. Drago Wolf was a former Freedom Fighter turned spy and saboteur for Dr. Ivo Robotnik, Sleuth Dog was an intelligence officer who turned traitor against Knothole, and the Fearsome Foursome were the defeated minions of arch-villain Mammoth Mogul. (StH: #42, #50, SSS: #1)


The Destructix at their most numerous.

When Robo Robotnik, later known as Dr. Eggman, used a network of satellites to open the cells on Devil's Gulag, all six of these criminals--together with Snively Kintobor, Nack the Weasel, Warlord Kodos, and Uma Arachnis--escaped the prison, making Snively their leader after concluding erroneously that he had released them. Following Kodos and Arachnis' reanimation, both of them having been left in immobile crystal forms by Ixis Naugus, the group kidnapped Nate Morgan to Big Kahuna Island offshore from West Robotropolis with the hope that he would provide them with his technical knowledge. He refused, and the villains were then attacked: first by Sonic the Hedgehog, Elias Acorn, and the Royal Secret Service, and then by a giant cyborg squid dispatched by Robo-Robotnik. Defeated and captured, the main six Destructix were shipped back to Devil's Gulag, whilst their four other allies escaped through various means.. (StH: #62, #63, #69, #70)

Escape and Roboticization[]

Eventually escaping once again, the Destructix took over a factory once owned by Dr. Eggman, bullying resident Tommy Turtle as they tried to sell the facility back to Eggman. Crafty as always, Eggman used his new roboticizing touch to turn all the Destructix into Robians. However, Sleuth Dog threw a grenade before being fully transformed, and the "Mecha Destructix" were all seemingly destroyed by the blast. In truth, they escaped, and were later returned to normal with the rest of Mobius by the Bem, a race of benevolent aliens. (StH: #117, #123, CSE)

They disappeared into obscurity for a time, though they were used as part of a plot by Eggman's computer virus son A.D.A.M., who created robot duplicates of their Robian selves to attack Sonic and fool him into taking an Auto Automaton of his old friend Tommy back to Knothole where it nearly killed him. Recovering the "Metal Destructix" Robotnik had A.D.A.M. analyze them, and was fed a series of lies regarding the Destructix's Re-Roboticization that included a falsified tape of a deal made between the group of criminals and a mysterious new enemy known only as "Anonymous"-in truth, an alias created by A.D.A.M. himself as he began making plans to take over. (StH: #135, #136, CSE)

Shifting Alliances[]

Destructix Liberated

Rouge, Scourge and Dr. Finitevus liberating the Destructix from the Egg Grape Chambers

The Destructix were soon recruited to retrieve Mammoth Mogul's Chaos Emerald after he was sealed inside it by Titan Tails. Attacking Merlin Prower and his escort Sir Connery, they nearly succeeded in stealing the Emerald but were then defeated by the Freedom Fighters and Chaotix. Placed in prison once again, they were quickly freed after Mogul was liberated by the death of the Ancient Walkers. All seven villains then did battle briefly with the wizard Ixis Naugus, his Arachne minions, and their old enemies. When Naugus learned of Mogul's role in founding the Order of Ixis, he submitted himself to Mogul's leadership, and the Destructix and the Arachne joined forces against the defenders of Knothole. Almost immediately, though, all the villains were captured by the Egg Fleet and transported to the Egg Grape Chamber, where Mogul attempted briefly to defend them all using his Chaos powers. Later the Destructix willingly joined Dr. Finitevus when he arrived with Scourge and Rouge the Bat to rescue them, after witnessing Mogul force the Arachne and Ixis Naugus to bear the brunt of the Egg Grape's effects for him. (StH: #162, #163, #164, #165)


The Destructix with Scourge and Fiona.

Hired by Finitevus to act as his enforcers, the Destructix played the part of reformed mercenaries in defending the Echidnas of Angel Island from the Dingoes who sought to destroy them. Their true nature remained obvious as Sleuth Dog joined Scourge the Hedgehog in coming to Knothole in search of a Warp Ring stolen from them by Rouge the Bat. Soon joined by Fiona Fox, the Destructix ambushed Knuckles the Echidna when he returned to Angel Island, handing him over to the Dark Legion and thus enabling his transformation into a new Enerjak. (StH: #165, #171, #181)

Staying out of this new powerhouse's way, the Destructix were set to guard a weapon created by the Brotherhood of Guardians to destroy Enerjak. Sonic the Hedgehog, Julie-Su and Knuckles' father Locke did battle with them to reach the weapon, aided by the Fire Ant Archimedes. When Sonic retrieved the weapon, the criminals confronted him, only for Sonic to destroy it to demonstrate his unwillingness to kill Knuckles with it. Their mission complete, the Destructix left the heroes in peace, and fled Angel Island through a Warp Ring as Super Sonic did battle with Enerjak. (StH: #183, #184)

Re-Hired by Mogul[]

Following Mammoth Mogul's escape from yet another prison in New Mobotropolis, he called upon the Destructix to serve as his mercenaries. They agreed, taking on a mission to bring Sonic to Mogul, dead or alive. They ambushed Sonic with Bean the Dynamite and Bark the Polar Bear only to end up having Sonic get the upper hand when Bean and Bark were bribed into helping Sonic by Sally. During the ensuing battle, Bean hinted that Predator Hawk might be a deserter of the Battlebird Armada as well. They emerged victorious, however, when Nack stunned Sonic with his gun from far off. After they tied Sonic up they headed off to the Casino Night Zone to deliver Sonic to Mogul and receive their payment. (StH: #187)

Not long after, they were attacked by Sally Acorn, Amy Rose, Geoffrey St. John, and the newly freed Sonic. The Destructix, Bean, and Bark were swiftly beaten by the heroes. All except for Sleuth, who was confronted by Rouge, who informed him of something that Mogul wanted him to do. After that, Sleuth was seen trying to sneak out of the casino. Mogul got angry at him after he revealed that he and the Destructix were using the Bar and Grill for "mercenary actions". Mogul angrily told him to take the Destructix and leave the premises. It was then learned as Sleuth was going to get the rest of the Destructix, that the Destructix's job had been to arrange for Sonic to accbroughr to tongdoi. as destroying some of Mogul's robots, leading to Sonic himself being discredited. Mogul was still going to pay the Destructix for their actions, so they left their mission in success, despite getting beaten up by Sonic and his group. (StH: #188)

The Dragon Kingdom[]


The Destructix and four heroes prepare for a battle against the Raiju.

Subsequently, the group suffered the loss of two members, Drago Wolf deciding to rejoin the Eggman Empire. After Lightning Lynx defected back to the Raiju Clan, the remaining members of the original Fearsome Foursome became somewhat despondent; when Fiona Fox sought them out, she found them sulking in the Bottom of the Barrel Bar 'n' Grill. She asked then-leader Sleuth for their services, and he instead gave her control of the team, feeling it was time for him to get out while he had the opportunity. The remaining teammates only agreed to work for Fiona if they were able to bring Lightning back to the team. (StH: #201, SU: #15)

With this goal in mind they traveled to the Dragon Kingdom, and while there found Sonic, Tails, Sally and Monkey Khan, who were trying to draw support away from the Iron Dominion by negotiating with the local Clans. As the Raiju Clan had not yet been encountered, Fiona felt her team could use this to their advantage, and after a rough encounter, were able to call a truce to offer a team-up. They then journied to the Iron Fortress where the Raiju Clan were stationed and stormed it, confronting the clan, Lightning Lynx and the Bride of the Conquering Storm. It was decided that the clan's fate would be decided by a one-on-one duel; when Lightning lost to Sonic and was again banished from the clan, Fiona was quick to offer him the promise of future revenge, and so he rejoined the Destructix with the others advocating they would never turn on him as the Raiju had. (SU: #14, #15)

Prison Break[]


Footage of the Destructix being confronted by the Zone Cops.

With the team rebuilt, Fiona was finally able to focus on her original plan: breaking Scourge out of Zone Jail. To this end, they took on a job for Dr. Finitevus, who gave the team access to the Cosmic Interstate. Once there, they were confronted by Zone Cops for violating the zone lock-down and reacted with extreme violence, destroying a number of squad cars while seriously wounding several officers. This was all according to plan, as it resulted in the Destructix being sent to prison; however, things didn't go as predicted when Scourge angrily rejected the team's offer to rescue him. While Fiona believed the situation could be salvaged, the rest of the Destructix now believed Scourge a lost cause and their efforts wasted after rescuing him from King Maxx's thugs twice. (SU: #29)

Over the next couple of days though, Scourge managed to get all four of the others back on his side one-by-one after listening to recountings of their pasts, while promising to satisfy their own personal goals or desires. Once united in their decision to follow Scourge, the Destructix escaped from their cells one evening and started a riot by releasing the other prisoners to cover their escape. In order to give themselves an edge, they also had their Control Collars removed to take out anyone in their way, while also breaking the collars off Al & Cal to release their demi-god forms and inflict heavy damage everywhere. (SU: #30, #31, #32)


The Destructix corner Maxx and Jeffrey in the processing area.

They ran into a complication though, when Fiona discovered someone had stolen their gear from the processing area. Scourge then tasked Lightning and Predator to track down the thieves, with the others following as backup while he left to cover for them. They eventually found King Maxx and Jefferey St. Croix attempting to flee via their stolen Warp Ring, and gave them a vicious beating before the two could escape. Having recovered their clothes and equipment, the Destructix then met up with Scourge as he ended a standoff with the Warden and were able to escape to Moebius, narrowly avoiding being caught by the F.O.E. Inhibitors. While in the Grand Forest, they prepared to complete their task with Finitevus, only to have Scourge declare a change of plans since they were now following him. (SU: #32)
