Knuckles the Echidna is one of the main protagonists of the Sonic the Hedgehog series. He appeared in the 2nd episode of DEATH BATTLE!, Yoshi VS Knuckles, where he fought against Yoshi from the series of the Super Mario series.

History Edit

The sole Echidna on Earth, Knuckles is the protector of the Master Emerald on Angel Island. He rarely leaves the island unless something big happens to the emerald or somewhere else.

He first met Dr. Eggman, and was told by him that Sonic was after the Master Emerald, and he needed his help. Not knowing that this was a lie, Knuckles fought against Sonic, but was soon able to realize his mistake and turned his attention to Eggman and helped defeat him. Knuckles would later become a strong ally to Sonic and his friends in later adventures.
