- Sonic Comic Origins—Little Lost Soldier
In the mockup of the Lava Powerhouse, Antoine D'Coolette confronts the Robo-Boiler as he begins to reminisce about his past...
As a child, his father sent him to Mobotropolis to train to be a soldier, telling his son to always be brave. However, things would not look so kindly towards him as by the time he arrived, Dr. Eggman initiated his coup on the kingdom, forcing him to run away with the others to Knothole Village. Not wanting to be seen as a major coward, he decided to put on a loud and pompous act, which ended up with him being overshadowed by relative newcomer Sonic. Even his romantic advances towards Princess Sally were met with failure! However, Antoine found inspiration with someone else - Bunnie Rabbot, who struggled everyday to try to live normally with her new robotic appendages. Through Bunnie, Antoine became braver, especially after Bunnie admitted to Antoine that his real strength with facing down his fears, not just "being brave".
It was that bravery that ultimately lead to him proposing to her and becoming even closer than before...
Antoine's reminincing is cut off by Sally's arrival, spooking him badly. Recovering, Antoine lets Sally know that Bunnie's nearby. At Sally's command, the two swordsmen charge off to link up with Bunnie.

- He tried wooing Sally Acorn, just like he did in the old world, but she didn't show any signs of falling for him, and after seeing how cool and brave Sonic was, he felt ashamed that in comparison, he was cowardly.
