Flickies are a kind of colorful bird that live in various regions across the planet. Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik constantly uses them as batteries for his various Badniks. They are freed from inside the robots they are imprisoned in when the robots are destroyed. Dr. Eggman also collects them in Prison Eggs in order to use them later as batteries for his Badniks.

- Flicky is one of few Sonic characters to actually predate Sonic himself, first appearing in an 80's arcade game Flicky, in which a blue Flicky would rescue its children Chirps from Tiger cats and Iggy lizards. Flicky made numerous appearances in numerous later games. Flicky's original role in the Sonic franchise is as a small animal rescued from numerous robots in Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Sonic Spinball among others. The Flickies in this article were more closely based on the Flickies from the Genesis and Sega Saturn game Sonic 3D Blast, and the Dreamcast game Sonic Adventure. Those Flickies are often following those who pass close by, like the Chirps did in the original Flicky game.
