The chili dog,[1] also spelled chili-dog,[2] and chilidog,[3] is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a food product consumed on Sonic's world. It is perhaps best known as the favorite food of Sonic the Hedgehog.


As the name suggests, the chili-dog is a generic name for a hot dog served in a bun and topped with some sort of meat sauce and a spicy substance known as chili.


While trying desperately to get Sonic to rejoin the Resistance, Amy attempted bribing him with the promise of a chili-dog. In an attempt to tease Amy, Sonic accepted the offer.[2] Later on, after saving Barricade Town, Sonic jokingly asked for chili dogs when a grateful citizen asked for a way to replay him.[3] When later receiving help from Tails after taking a hit to the gut by Rough's Vapor Condenser in Windmill Village, Sonic remarked he had eaten chili dogs that was harder.[1]

In Spiral Hill Village, Tangle the Lemur and Jewel ordered two chili dogs to go from Ron after Tangle crashed into his chili dog cart.[4]

At least in an alternate timeline, there existed a Chili Dog brand called "Mr. Munchum-ums", which created a Chili Dog that Classic Sonic really liked. Enough so that he was willing to learn to drive so that he can enter a race sponsered by the brand, speculating that the Chili dogs were the wining prize.
