Ray the Mantaray


Ray the Manta was a Mobian manta and leader of the Forty Fathom Freedom Fighters. Aside from leadership, he is capable of providing transport for victims of Dr. Ivo Robotnik's Badniks.


Freedom Fighter[]

Along with his teammates, Ray first appeared helping Tails reach safety after Octobot tried to drown Tails. He also found someone that could repair Tails's submarine, the Sea Fox, after Octobot scuttled it. Ray also led the attack against Eel Capone after Octobot fled the scene. (TMS: #1, #3, SMM)

Over two years later, Ray led the offensive against the Island of Misfit Badniks, taking on Coconuts and Caterkiller. Still, they all needed help from Big Fluke after Pseudo Sonic woke up and became super sized. (StH: #185)


Ray is a happy individual, and is also quite soft-spoken. (CSE)


Ray is as speedy in the water as his teammate Bottlenose Dolphin, though he lacks his friend's formal training. While equipped with a stinger like others of his race, Ray rarely-if ever-employs it in battle.

Background Information[]
