Yacker is a White Wisp and friend of Sonic the Hedgehog.


The Imprisoned Planet

Yacker and Sonic.

At some point in the past, Yacker met Sonic the Hedgehog.[1] (StH: #3)


Yacker's basic shape is that of a sphere with three tentacles, two of which are used as arms. He has one pink eye in the center of his heads, and two very alien-like antennae on top of his head. Yacker's most distinguishing feature that sets him apart from the other White Wisps however, is a strand of curly blue "hair" on his head between his antennae.


Being a Wisp, Yacker is peaceful, helpful, and friendly of nature, and he enjoys spending his time with others.

Assuming that Yacker is like the other Wisps, he is not much for fighting, but he is still a brave and good-hearted soul who does not approve of amoral behavior.


Yacker is able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as his main method of transportation.

Being a Wisp, Yacker is able to generate and store his own unique variant of a powerful energy inside his own body, which he can pass on a fraction of by phasing into the recipient.

Background Information

  • Yacker was based on the character of the same name in the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series, where he first appeared in Sonic Colors. He was unnamed in the comic, but his name is considered tier 2 canon by this site's canon policy, as it does not contradict already established canon from tier 1.
  • Head writer Ian Flynn has revealed on Twitter that Yacker's measurements are the same as those of his game counterpart.
