Knuckles the Echidna is a sixteen-year old red echidna from the Sonic series and is the guardian of the Master Emerald on Angel Island. He competed against Mario and others in Olympic events in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. In this game, Knuckles acts as a power-type character, meaning he excels at games that require brute strength, such as Hammer Throw or Javelin Throw. He is also the fastest of the Power characters. In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, he was voiced by Dan Green, who also voiced Vector the Crocodile in that game. He is currently voiced by Travis Willingham.

Official profiles and statistics[edit]

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games[edit]

Profile[edit]

"Knuckles is an echidna that shows exceptional versatility despite his overall strength in Power events. He'll perform best at events like throwing and rowing, but can also provide solid competition in many other competitions that aren't as power-based."
