The Oracle of Delphius is a mysterious sage that hails from the Sonic Underground dimension. Not a lot is known about him except that he can read futures and pasts. He was the one responsible for telling Queen Aleena the prophecy that resulted in her parting way with her offspring. He was also responsible for telling Sonic, Sonia, and Manic about their past resulting in their formation of a resistance group against Dr. Robotnik.


The Oracle first made himself known shortly after Dr. Robotnik’s siege of Mobotropolis, altering it into his city of Robotropolis. He located Queen Aleena, who was hiding with her children after a bounty was placed on their lives. The Oracle foretold her a prophecy in which her offspring’s lives would be lost if she did not separate from them immediately. With a heavy heart, the queen sent her children to three separate guardians. (SSS: #10)

The Oracle would later return once again after Sonic, Sonia, and Manic formed a band with each other, this time looking to the past. He revealed to the children their history together as siblings and the children of Aleena. Shortly afterward, the children’s caretakers were roboticized by Dr. Robotnik. This, coupled with the Oracle’s words, would spark the hedgehogs to form their resistance against the evil doctor. (SSS: #10)


In the animated series, the Oracle told the Queen to hide the triplets until the prophecy can be fulfilled. He warned Robotnik about his upcoming defeat (which was a bad idea). He appeared at Chuck’s hideout and told Sonic everything about his family’s origin and told him to play the “song in his heart” that would magically gather his siblings. Later, he told the siblings that their guardians were captured and roboticized after Robotnik found out about them, he gave them a map to prepare them for their journey. He was voiced by Maurice LaMarche.
