— 貝爾, Sonic the Hedgehog #35

貝爾[1] 是一位出現在由IDW Publishing出版的刺蝟索尼克漫畫系列及其衍生作品中的角色。她是一位自由意志且心地善良的Badnik,由蛋頭博士在他患有失憶症並被稱為「修補匠先生」時創造。[2][3] 貝爾的設計基於索尼克的世界中的一種女性擬人動物。與普通Badnik不同,貝爾的外殼完全由木頭製成。[4]

概念與創作[編輯 | 編輯原始碼]

貝爾是由Evan Stanley構思和設計的,她提出了貝爾的粗略角色弧線和設計。[4][5] IDW的團隊希望引入一位具有可識別設計和概念的角色,使她們在索尼克的世界和角色中脫穎而出,又能融入其中。最終決定貝爾將是一個機器人(一個常見概念)並設計成木偶娃娃(一個新概念)。[4][5]

貝爾的設計部分受到了huldra(一種斯堪的納維亞神話生物)的啟發,特別是她的尾巴。[6][7] 在她的提案中,她有一個圍裙,圍裙口袋裡裝有工具,有深色的臉頰,沒有下巴線條,和光禿的肩膀。[5] 斯坦利最初還提出了貝爾作為一個明確的動物物種,即一隻老鼠,因為她「不確定貝爾非特定的木偶性質會如何發展。」[5][6] 但最終決定她不會基於任何特定的動物。這是因為斯坦利在設計她時意識到她不需要是任何特定的物種,這也增加了她的整體奇異性並賦予了更多的原創性。[6] 在設計的後期階段,SEGA要求Stanley在貝爾嘴巴下方添加下巴線條,以明確她是一個機器人並使她看起來更像木偶。[4][5]

外觀[編輯 | 編輯原始碼]

貝爾是一個機器人,有一個金屬骨架和完全由橡木硬木製成的外殼,[8]賦予了她木偶娃娃的外觀。她的造型像一種擬人動物,擁有橙色的皮毛和棕黃色的口鼻部,以及中等長度的辮子,辮子尾部用綠色髮帶束起,額頭上有一個大的毛茸茸的頭髮團。她還有藍色的眼睛,每頰三個雀斑,像兔子一樣的門牙,和一個粉紅色的圓鼻子(類似小丑鼻子)。她的四根睫毛末端很粗,而她的手臂和腿則是棕黃色的,呈矩形。最後,她有一條橙色的線,線尾有一個絨毛球,作為尾巴。至於服裝,她穿着一件粉紅色的襯衫,肩膀蓬鬆,領子是白色的,一頂尖尖的綠帽子,綠色的連體褲,上面有黃色的扣子和短蓬鬆的褲腿,白色帶褶邊的襪子,以及粉紅色的瑪麗珍鞋,鞋上有黃色的扣子。儘管她的手也似乎戴着手套,但它們實際上只是白色的,附有假的白色褶皺設計的袖口。

修補匠先生和貝爾,來自刺蝟索尼克 #44.

由「修補匠先生」使用Badnik零件製作而成,[3][9]貝爾被創造成為他的小助手,幫助他在機械車間等地方工作。[2][10]貝爾稱修補匠先生為她的「爸爸」,[9]非常愛她的創造者。[11]

貝爾樂於花時間修理修補匠先生為風車村孩子們創造的玩具和遊樂設施。當他開始向村民們介紹貝爾時,他們對她感到緊張,但願意給貝爾一個機會。然而,有一天,貝爾發現修補匠先生消失了。不久後,恢復了蛋頭博士身份的修補匠先生駕駛面具船攻擊風車村,並將金屬病毒傾倒進村莊。由於金屬病毒無法影響貝爾,她躲避了變成殭屍機器人的村民們。在殭屍機器人離開後,貝爾獨自留在被遺棄的風車村,感到非常孤獨。然而,當殭屍機器人末日事件後來被避免並且治癒的村民們返回村莊時,貝爾發現村民們指責她,認為她是蛋頭博士的間諜。[11]人們告訴她,修補匠先生一直是作為蛋頭博士的怪物,但貝爾不願相信。[2]貝爾心情沉重地看到村民們拆除並回收修補匠先生建造的一切,當她試圖修復東西時,村民們只是對她感到憤怒。[11]最終,貝爾離開去尋找蛋頭博士。[9][11]她希望如果能和他交談,也許能說服他回到修補匠先生的身份。[11]

作為她計劃的一部分,貝爾決定找到蛋頭博士,以確認其他人所說的是謊言,如果不是,她至少希望說服她的創造者放棄邪惡的方式。[2]在她的搜索過程中,她在風車村附近發現了一個廢棄的蛋頭博士基地。[8][9]

索尼克塔爾斯進入廢棄的蛋頭博士基地時,貝爾會在基地的陰影中潛行,避開兩位男孩的注意,並後來藏在一堆廢棄機器人中。[9] 最終,當索尼克無意中踢到一個螺絲釘時,貝爾從藏身之處掉了出來。索尼克立刻誤以為她是一個Badnik並攻擊她,同時試圖猜出她的名字。然而,貝爾不斷避開索尼克的攻擊,直到他拉了她的尾巴。這使得她本能地用雙腿踢了索尼克一腳,之後她為此道歉。最終,塔爾斯阻止了索尼克,並向貝爾解釋說他們通常遇到的機器人屬於蛋頭博士的軍隊。貝爾解釋說她不是蛋頭博士創造的,而是另一個她一直在尋找的創造者創造的。塔爾斯同樣對她完全由木頭製成感到印象深刻。然而,他們被基地內觸發的警報打斷,這是因為塔爾斯忘記關閉當地計算機的防火牆。節拍器隨後到達並包圍了英雄們。當索尼克和塔爾斯討論如何擺脫當前困境時,貝爾注意到一個蛋頭守護者正試圖抓住塔爾斯。因此,她推開了塔爾斯,結果自己被機器人困住。幸運的是,塔爾斯摧毀了蛋守護者並解救了貝爾。索尼克隨後告訴貝爾,他們將不得不利用她不尋常的能力,因為周圍的情況變得更糟。[8]

在塔爾斯為他們製造了一個逃生路線後,貝爾在塔爾斯被一個蛋守護者抓住時,通過一個跳躍將塔爾斯從蛋守護者的抓握中解救出來,這是在她的尾巴被拉動後完成的。索尼克隨後將他們倆拖出基地。之後,貝爾請求他們帶她一起去白色公園區,因為她當前的藏身處已被機器人占領。在塔爾斯說服索尼克同意讓她加入後,後者讓貝爾選擇了龍捲風的一個翼蹼一路飛往白色公園區,但她並不喜歡這次飛行。在白色公園大酒店下車後,貝爾仍然因飛行而感到搖晃不已。艾咪隨後帶領貝爾和索尼克去了克拉奇負鼠的套房,後者躺在地板上昏迷不醒。與此同時,奶油兔想要釋放克拉奇關在籠子裡的Chao,籠子上有許多鎖。聽到這個,貝爾決定幫助奶油兔打開籠子,因為修補是她的專長。奶油兔隨後向貝爾介紹了自己。不久之後,克拉奇起身並激活了他套房內的機器人,然後自己逃跑了。貝爾隨後再次被敵對的機器人包圍。[12] 在其他人的保護下,貝爾努力打開囚禁奇奧的籠子,但遇到了一些棘手的掛鎖。最終,她打開了掛鎖,奇奧幫助摧毀了機器人。塔爾斯和Rouge隨後出現,警告他們一場雪崩正在向酒店逼近。英雄們試圖疏散酒店,但斯塔萊恩博士很快出現並阻擋了他們的去路。在斯塔萊恩被牽制時,塔爾斯告訴貝爾,斯塔萊恩只是個蛋頭博士的模仿者。然而,當斯

塔蘭抓住塔爾斯並試圖綁架他時,塔爾斯拉了貝爾的尾巴,使她直接踢中了斯塔萊恩的喙,讓英雄們得以在雪崩襲擊酒店並埋葬了斯塔萊恩時逃脫。索尼克後來向貝爾道歉,因為他最初如何對待她,後來發現她是如何幫助他的朋友的。而塔爾斯則輪流請她幫助他在他的工作室里,這是貝爾熱情地接受了。後來在工作室里,貝爾幫助塔爾斯修復了歐米茄。之後,塔爾斯注意到她可以毫無問題地閱讀蛋頭博士的密碼,這是只有蛋頭博士本人或他的創造物才能做到的。然而,貝爾仍然堅持蛋頭博士沒有創造她,並拒絕直接回答塔爾斯的問題。[13]

貝爾的失誤被探戈狐猴修復,來自刺蝟索尼克 #37

貝爾隨後由索尼克塔爾斯帶到復興聯盟的新總部,希望貝爾加入該組織並給她一個新家。在那裡,他們受到了艾咪珠兒的歡迎。貝爾說她擅長木工活,珠兒便派她去了機器工作室。在那裡,貝爾試圖幫助負責人,但她的笨拙只給自己帶來了麻煩。當一輛叉車後來碾過她的尾巴時,貝爾本能地踢了她所攜帶的箱子到一個懸掛在框架上的船上,打破了它的束縛。這在車間引起了恐慌,但探戈迅速來到並阻止了船的墜落。然而,貝爾因為她的失誤而失去了車間的工作。探戈帶着貝爾走時,貝爾向探戈坦白她在復興聯盟的困難時光。另一方面,探戈很快對貝爾尾巴的功能感到興奮,她感到有共鳴。不久後,他們都聽說了一個新的蛋頭博士塔樓的傳聞,該塔樓正在海岸外引發不自然的風暴。探戈和貝爾於是去找珠兒,那裡他們遇到了索尼克、塔爾斯和艾咪。當其他人在交談時,貝爾想知道蛋頭博士是否可能在塔樓里。然而,她拒絕說出來,因為這樣她就不得不解釋自己。儘管如此,她還是給了探戈一個想法,兩人可以自己去塔樓,幫助索尼克調查。貝爾隨後帶探戈去了一個未使用的大爆炸 極限裝備,她已經熱線接通了。緊接着,貝爾和探戈騎着它離開了總部。[10] 到達蛋頭博士的塔樓後,貝爾和探戈在降落時撞毀了大爆炸,失去了他們的一種逃生手段。經過塔樓入口前破碎的機器人,貝爾跟隨探戈進入塔樓,注意到牆上的蛋頭帝國徽章。不久後,他們進入了一個滿是機器人的房間。在沒有被機器人發現的情況下,貝爾和探戈攀爬塔樓的內部,直到他們遇到了小歐小秋,它們正在討論索尼克、塔爾斯和艾咪,他們已經闖入塔樓並進入了蛋頭博士機器人的測試室。在看到這對機器人將這些消息傳達給蛋頭博士後,貝爾問探戈她聽到的是否是蛋頭博士的聲音。探戈確認後,開始前往幫助索尼克,而貝爾不小心滑倒,正好掉在一些蛋頭士兵面前。然而,蛋子卒沒有發現貝爾。貝爾隨後被探戈拉了起來,探戈要求解釋。因此,貝爾告訴她她自己是一個Badnik,並且她來到塔樓是為了從蛋頭博士那裡尋找有關她起源的答案。她向探戈保證,她不想傷害任何人,但也理解探戈如果不信任她。然而令她驚訝的是,探戈選擇了無論如何都信任她,兩人繼續尋找索尼克等人。[3]

貝爾和探戈不久後找到並制約了小歐和小秋。然後,他們試圖讓這對機器人告訴他們設施內哪個傳送門會把他們帶到索尼克、塔爾斯和艾咪那裡。與此同時,貝爾重定向了蛋子卒巡邏隊,以便他們不能干預他們的審問。當探戈後來從小歐和小秋那裡得到她需要的信息時,她試圖進入一個傳送門去營救索尼克等人,但貝爾阻止了她,因為她擔心她的安全。然而,她被探戈說服,讓她這樣做,並允許探戈進入傳送門。[15] 在等待探戈時,貝爾會在小歐試圖向她提問時怒斥他,並堅稱她不是一個常規的Badnik。隨後,她猶豫地向他和小秋詢問了他們與蛋頭博士的關係。當他們解釋自己作為他的助手機器人的職責時,貝爾溫情地回憶起修補匠先生的習慣,直到她突然收到了蛋頭博士通過小歐和小秋的平板電腦打來的電話。看到貝爾後,蛋頭博士回憶起他是如何製造貝爾的,而貝爾在面對她的創造者時感到恐懼。然而,在蛋頭博士掛斷電話之前,絕望的貝爾問他為何要進行殘忍的行動和她所在的塔樓。聽到蛋頭博士只是為了犯罪而製造塔樓,心碎的貝爾中斷了通話。然而,貝爾隨後注意到通往測試室的傳送門正在噴射能量,小歐透露這是塔樓即將內爆的跡象。當探戈稍後帶着索尼克的團隊返回時,貝爾警告所有人危險。在索尼克帶領大家逃出塔樓後,團隊在龍捲風上逃離了塔樓,然後塔樓內爆了。在與小歐和小秋告別後,貝爾向她的朋友坦白了她的過去,以及她希望蛋頭博士回到他作為「修補匠先生」時的舊模式的希望被粉碎了。不過,探戈稍後安慰她說,她今天做了很多好事,這會讓修補匠先生感到驕傲。[2]

當貝爾在復興總部的機器工作室時,總部遭到了六鬼眾的攻擊。然而,當貝爾和她的上司躲避佐莫姆時,他們最終被斯塔萊恩博士救了出來,斯塔萊恩用催眠讓佐莫姆離開了他們。她的上司感謝了斯塔萊恩的救援,貝爾卻解釋了斯塔萊恩的真實身份。當她的上司然後試圖保護貝爾免受斯塔萊恩的傷害時,他被斯塔萊恩用他的多功能腳跟刺擊倒。為了讓斯塔萊恩放過她的上司,貝爾跟着斯塔萊恩走,斯塔萊恩雖然遇到了一些困難,但最終還是成功地從恢復總部綁架了她。[16]

貝爾責怪斯塔萊恩博士讓蛋頭博士回歸,來自刺蝟索尼克 #44

貝爾後來在斯塔萊恩的臨時藏身處醒來,被重新束縛並接入了斯塔萊恩的電腦。在那裡,經過與斯塔萊恩的短暫對話後,斯塔萊恩告訴她,她是一個極其獨特的商品,不管她對自己的看法如何,自己都沒有拆卸她的意圖,因為儘管和蛋頭分道揚鑣,他本人仍然尊重蛋頭博士的工作。貝爾回懟說她不是蛋頭博士的創造物。然而,斯塔萊恩回答說這只是半真的,接着告訴她他如何恢復蛋頭博士的記憶。他還補充說,沒有他的「修補匠先生」人格,蛋頭博士永遠不會再製造像貝爾這樣的機器人,所以他想要徹底研究她。憤怒的貝爾隨後開始責怪斯塔萊恩讓她失去了她的「父親」,但斯塔萊恩只對他從貝爾身上獲取的模擬情感數據感興趣。貝爾隨後被斯塔萊恩說服,告訴他她的故事。然而,她很快注意到斯塔萊恩只對他從她那裡獲取的數據感興趣。貝爾隨後注意到一個「幽靈」試圖釋放她,這讓她嚇壞了。然而,「幽靈」原來是艾斯皮奧卡奧蒂斯小隊隨後闖入斯塔萊恩的藏身處。然而,斯塔萊恩已經從貝爾那裡得到並保護了他所需的數據,隨後摧毀了他的電腦,並利用他的Tricore逃脫了卡奧蒂斯小隊。貝庫特隨後試圖安慰心碎的貝爾,向她保證她並不孤單,她的朋友們在等着她。[11]

火之試煉[編輯 | 編輯原始碼]

不久後,貝爾與艾咪探戈珠兒一起去野營,放鬆身心,儘管貝爾會被最近事件的想法困擾。最終到達森林脊區露營地後,該組從營地管理員那裡得知要小心使用火源,因為這個季節森林很乾燥。當貝爾幫忙搭建營地時,艾咪抱怨塔爾斯忘記為他們準備基本必需品,比如火柴。作為補償,貝爾不情願地向她展示了她內置的打火機。那天晚上,貝爾和其他人通過艾咪的命運牌預測了他們的未來。然而,當艾咪猶豫不決地揭示貝爾的未來時,貝爾的笨拙導致艾咪的牌掉進了篝火中。作為補償,艾咪用替代牌告訴了貝爾她的未來,但貝爾不相信她所說的。晚上,貝爾去散步,只發現了一個索尼克形狀的灌木叢和一些噪音。當她用打火機照亮周圍時,她被摩托蟲撞倒,並被摩托蟲打暈了。[17]

摩托蟲幫助貝爾熄滅了她手上的火,來自刺蝟索尼克 #46

當貝爾醒來時,她簡短地看到了兩個身影,然後注意到她的右手殼已被燒毀。她還發現摩托蟲從當前的森林大火中救了她,貝爾懷疑是她用打火機引起的。探戈不久後出現,貝爾立刻保護摩托蟲免受探戈的注意。在探戈為她的手包紮後,貝爾隨後與她和摩托蟲一起去找公園管理員的兒子,阿什。最終,他們在一個峽谷的另一邊找到了他和熾熱。然而,當貝爾和探戈開始不受控制地滑向峽谷時,摩托蟲讓他們都騎上了它,通過協作,他們越過了峽谷。在阿什告訴他們誰引起了森林大火後,貝爾從之前認出了他,她、探戈、阿什、熾熱和摩托蟲試圖逃離燃燒的森林。不幸的是,他們被一棵倒下的樹迫到了峽谷邊緣。當貝爾和其他人懸掛在邊緣時,懸崖崩塌,他們都落入了下面的河流中。[18]

落入河中後,小組找到了一段木頭抓住,貝爾緊緊抓住探戈的尾巴。在他們乘坐波濤洶湧的河流時,貝爾設法讓開始哭泣的阿什保持冷靜。在這次旅行中,貝爾驚嘆於探戈如何在這種情況下茁壯成長,以及她夢想像冒險家那樣生活。最終登陸營地後,艾咪和珠兒找到了貝爾和她的小組。貝爾隨後幫助阿什去找他的父親,並向一個害怕的珠兒保證摩托蟲是友好的。儘管如此,火勢仍在蔓延。然而,當珠兒想出一個撲滅火勢的主意時,貝爾的朋友們決定聯手幫助實現它。貝爾雖然猶豫,但還是加入了他們的團隊歡呼,然後開始幫助被捲入珠兒計劃中的露營者和摩托蟲。在森林大火得到控制並慶祝之後,貝爾獲得了一定的自信,並看到探戈告訴珠兒她要退出復興聯盟。儘管如此,珠兒理解了她的決定,並允許了她。後來,貝爾來到了塔爾斯的工作室,那裡塔爾斯修好了她的手。之後,他們將注意力轉向了摩托蟲,塔爾斯計劃檢查它,希望找出是否可以讓其他較小的機器人像它那樣違背它們的編程。[19]

貝爾、索尼克和塔爾斯隨後在塔爾斯的工作室開始對他們收集的較小機器人進行實驗。在小組隔離了摩托蟲的非攻擊性子程序後,貝爾通過邁爾斯電子無線傳輸它們到其他機器人,這使得他們在索尼克的面前變得溫順。他們的實驗成功後,貝爾希望以這種方式拯救其他機器人。之後,貝爾在外面與摩托蟲呆了一會兒。然而,晚上,貝爾接收到一個信標信號,促使她前往一個特定位置。當塔爾斯擋住她的去路時,貝爾試圖攻擊他,但索尼克介入並將她控制住。當貝爾和摩托蟲設法壓制住索尼克時,塔爾斯帶着一種原型澤蒂阻斷器回來,打破了對貝爾的信號控制。恢復過來的貝爾告訴她的朋友們,信號在召喚一支機器人軍隊,她打算給蛋頭博士一些她的想法。然而,貝爾無法告訴他們應該前往哪裡,她、索尼克和塔爾斯只好放開摩托蟲,並跟隨它前往信號的來源。在途中,他們發現人們被機器人包圍,但索尼克設法讓他們擺脫了機器人。繼續追蹤後,三人最終在數小時的追逐後到達了一片樹林,帝國城就在他們前面。貝爾隨後試圖阻止摩托蟲,這引起了周圍機器人的注意。在嘗試拯救他們並讓摩托蟲遠離蛋頭博士的嘗試中,貝爾痛苦地選擇切斷摩托蟲的電源,儘管這有永久性停用它的風險,同時索尼克和塔爾斯抵擋住機器人。儘管貝爾的計劃奏效,機器人恢復了他們無意識的行軍,但她也在摩托蟲內找到了來自修補匠先生的書面告白。儘管貝爾現在知道修補匠先生確實已永遠失去了,索尼克鼓勵她繼續與他們一起向前進。貝爾因此選擇與索尼克和塔爾斯一起進入帝國城進行調查。[20][21]

貝爾向她的「父親」告別,來自刺蝟索尼克 #50

貝爾被索尼克帶到了帝國城。索尼克建議她留在後面,但她想知道是什麼使得機器人聚集到城市中。當他們接近城市中心時,貝爾看到了一個嚴重損壞的金屬索尼克,並決定修理它,說她不能拋棄需要幫助的機器人。塔爾斯反對,但這兩位英雄隨後被瑟吉基特帶走了。貝爾看到一大群機器人開始向她靠近。她把金屬索尼克帶到另一個房間躲避機器人,並利用自己作為路由器,允許澤蒂阻斷器阻止控制金屬索尼克的城市指揮信號。金屬索尼克重新上線後,貝爾擔心機器人會攻擊她。金屬索尼克隨後在她身後猛擊,阻止了一隻摩托蟲攻擊他們。驚訝的貝爾檢查了他的文件,發現金屬索尼克將她識別為蛋頭科技。她還發現金屬索尼克與蛋頭網絡的連接讓他知道蛋頭博士的位置。貝爾隨後決定帶着金屬索尼克去找蛋頭博士,因為金屬索尼克走出她的範圍將失去他們之間的連接。他們乘坐電梯下到城市深處。

Belle and Metal found Dr. Eggman under a city street with him standing over a defeated Dr. Starline. Belle told Eggman she found the letter he left for her when he was Mr. Tinker before Starline "ruined their lives". Eggman replied that Starline putting him "back in the correct frame of mind" was not a mistake. Belle recognized she can't change his mind and she has come to say goodbye, saying the father she knew is gone and she has to move on. Eggman rolled his eyes on how Belle and Metal are so clingy. He then went to the two robots and asked since Belle was "against" him, if she was going to duel Metal Sonic. Belle said all she did fixed him, like how she will help all the robots he abandons. As the street above them started to collapse, Eggman asked how she bypassed the control signal. Belle explained she used herself as a secure router. Eggman realized she interfaced with his coding directly and, since he was impressed by her work, he offered her a choice: join him as a mechanic or go back to Sonic and his "bothersome buddies. Belle once again said this was a goodbye and she is returning to her friends. Eggman laughed it off and left with Metal Sonic. As more debris fell near her, Belle called out to Starline to get out. Starline, however, was overwhelmed with sorrow over his defeat. Belle looked with distraught as Starline was buried under the rubble and she quickly left the area.

Belle then regrouped with Sonic and Tails by hitching a ride on a Fullboar. Sonic asked where Metal was and she explained he returned to Eggman and left her. Belle then explained she modified the Badnik to not attack, but it was weirdly friendly when she did so. Belle was about to explain what happened to Starline, when Eggman announced over the city's PA system that he has retained control over the Badniks and sent the massive swarm to attack them.[22] Sonic raced off with Belle and the group went to hide. Once they were in the clear, Belle explained everything that happened to them today was Starline's fault. She laid out the plan and how it turned out and told Sonic Starline had died. Sonic asked how she knew this and Belle told him she downloaded some dated when she worked on Metal Sonic. Tails asks if she can find a map by connecting to the Eggnet. Belle tries and can't connect, but she does find a record of a hanger near where they are with a shuttle inside. Sonic and Tails discus what they should do and Belle apologies for not being a fighter. Sonic says that isn't necessary and the world needs types like her. She thanks Sonic and picks up Kit to make a run to the shuttle.

As Belle and Tails sneak to the shuttle, some Guards get near her, but to her surprise, they don't notice her. Seeing she's safe around them, Belle calls for Tails to take them out. Tails quickly disposes of the Badniks and they run into the shuttle. Tails is able to get it off the ground and they eventually fly over Sonic. Belle goes to a door and pulls Sonic inside the shuttle after he jumped up to it. Unbeknownst to them, Metal Sonic has been following them and flies through the ship, causing it to crash back onto the city. Belle, Tails, and Kit are unharmed, but Sonic broke his ankle.[23]

Overpowered[編輯 | 編輯原始碼]

Metal Sonic was charging up to attack Sonic, Tails, Belle, and Kit, but Tails was able to grab Kit and push Belle and Sonic out of the before Metal smashed into the ground. They made it into a cramped area so Metal wouldn't be at full speed. Belle picked up Kit again and pleaded for metal to stop. Metal did not listen and the group went into a room to hide. Kit was struggling to get out of Belle's grasp, even after explaining she was trying to help. Kit elbowed her in the nose and they fell on the ground. Soon, Kit agreed to help them fight Metal Sonic but said he needed water to refill his Hydro Pack. Belle noticed some water reservoirs and used her kicking ability to open them. Kit was able to take down Metal Sonic and the group got to the walls of the city. Sonic and Belle were on top of the wall when they saw Metal escaped and was coming right for them. Sonic told Belle to stand in behind him, but Belle stood in front of Sonic as Metal barreled towards them, which caused Metal to sop right in front of her. Belle told Metal Sonic is he wanted Sonic he would have to go through her. Metal paused for a moment, and before Belle could finish her next sentence, Metal smacked her aside. Sonic was disgusted and ready to fight, but and explosion in the center of the city caused Metal Sonic to leave to protect Eggman. Sonic asked Belle if she was okay, but she was too distraught to say anything.[24]

Belle and everyone else went to Tails' Lab after escaping the city. Belle was able to get Motobud on the way back and disassembled the robot. When Tails asked about her progress, she said there was a lot of damage and she wasn't sure what she was looking at or what she was looking for. Nevertheless, Belle said she would figure it out. When Sonic revealed the supposed fate of Surge to Kit, Belle helped comfort him. When Jewel reported to Sonic and Tails there was trouble in Central City, Belle decided to stay behind with Kit as he grieved. She watched a news report on Tails' computer about the attack, which caught Kit's attention. Kit tried to leave to help Sonic, but Belle stopped her, saying he needs to look out for himself. Kit reasoned he was made for Surge and since she is gone, he can be used by Sonic. He unleashed his water coils and told Belle he won't lose Sonic. Belle tried to reason with him and used her kick power to doge a coil, but she ended up hanging from the ceiling. Kit cut down some equipment and buried Belle under it. Belle called out to Kit, saying he already mattered, but he only gave her a look and left.[25]

Soon, Sonic and Tails returned and freed Belle. She apologized for what happened but Sonic told her not to worry. Belle soon noticed Whisper holding herself and her Variable Wispon in a corner. Belle introduced herself and said she knew about her after Tangle told her about her. Belle said she was good at fixing things and asked to take a look at her Wispon. Whisper handed it over and Belle thanked her.[26] Belle was indeed able to fix it and it was returned to Whisper.[27]

Future Growth and Urban Warfare[編輯 | 編輯原始碼]

Belle would later return to Restoration HQ and help harvest the garden Silver and Blaze made in the Emeraldville Ruins. When Tangle began zealously digging up potatoes, she obliviously flung one into Belle's face.[28]

Following the destruction of Eggperial City, Belle joined her friends for a picnic to celebrate. She was relieved to see the Variable Wispon still functional, having scavenged parts from old Chaos Drives to repair it.[29]

Personality[編輯 | 編輯原始碼]

Despite being a robot, Belle is remarkably lifelike and self-actualizing. As such, she is able to express virtually all kinds of emotions, including despair.[2][16][11] Belle has a good heart and loves helping out people by fixing things and solving problems.[13] However, while enthusiastic, she is rather clumsy and naïve, which leads her into all kinds of trouble and mishaps. Apparently insecure, she tends to worry about what other people think of her.[10]

While Belle is quite shy and a bit timid, in the face of real danger and with adequate motivation, she is capable of leaping into action. Also, while she has the tools to defend herself, she is a pacifist and cannot fight, nor does she like it, so she tries her best to avoid conflict.[8] Also, being made of wood, Belle shows an aversion to fire. This also makes her reluctant to use her built-in lighter.[17] She is also very embarrassed about her squeaky clown nose, which she does not want her friends to know about.[18]

Despite being outwardly helpful, Belle used to be rather uncomfortable speaking honestly about herself and unwilling to talk about her past, especially about her creator, Dr. Eggman.[13] She considers Dr. Eggman and Mr. Tinker to be completely separate people, only considering the latter as her true creator.[11] However, after she gave up hope of reasoning with Eggman, she no longer sees any reason to hide the truth.[2] Belle also does not like to be ignored by Eggman or being taken lightly when sharing her life story.[11]

Belle has great hopes of freeing Dr. Eggman's Badnik army from his control, and believes in spite of her pacifistic ways that she should fight for anyone who can be liberated.[20] As such, Belle has resolved to take care of any robot that Eggman has abandoned or is in need of help, even if it means aiding robots as dangerous and irredeemable as Metal Sonic.[22]

Belle explains how her kicks work, from Sonic the Hedgehog #37.

Belle has great reflexes, as she was able to successfully dodge all of Sonic's hand-to-hand combat attacks when they first met.[8]

Belle's fingers conceal various handyman tools inside them that she can reveal by opening her fingers.[12] Her nose also makes a funny noise when squeezed.[18] Her tail also possesses a unique function that makes Belle kick outwards automatically when it is pulled.[8] This functionality can be used by Belle to make herself perform enhanced jumps or surprise kicks.[12][13][18]

Besides physical talents, Belle is a highly skilled mechanic, being able to hotwire something as advanced as an Extreme Gear, undo locks, and successfully tinker with robots as advanced as Metal Sonic.[10][13][22] She can also repair weaponry such as Whisper's Variable Wispon.[26] Even Dr. Eggman himself has taken an interest in her skills as a mechanic.[22] Being Eggtech, she is also able to read Eggman's blueprint ciphers perfectly.[13] In addition, she can wirelessly interface with Eggman's machines, which allows her to access their files and thus connect to Eggnet.[22]

Eggman remembers Belle, from Sonic the Hedgehog #40.

After Dr. Eggman lost his memories and took on the persona of "Mr. Tinker" while at Windmill Village, he created Belle as an aide robot to help with his workshop endeavors.[11] Mr. Tinker was very kind-hearted and affectionate to Belle, whom he would love as if she was his own daughter.[20] He also tried to introduce her to the villagers so that they would not feel nervous around her. In return, Belle would refer to Mr. Tinker as her father. When Mr. Tinker went missing, Belle eventually learned that he was a monster in the form of Eggman all along. Belle did not believe this due to her love for her father and set out to find out the answers about him. She believed that she could manage to convince her father to reassume his kind personality. However, she would not admit that it was Eggman who made her.[11]

Despite Mr. Tinker and Eggman technically being the same person, Belle refuses to acknowledge Dr. Eggman himself as her creator.[13] Rather, she sees Eggman's Mr. Tinker persona as her true father.[11]

When Belle finally met Eggman, Eggman showed no desire to go back to being Mr. Tinker. However, when he found out that Belle took care of his alter ego, he would nonetheless give answers to her decisions. Eggman also tried to convince her of his superiority over Mr. Tinker, arguing that his achievements were nothing compared to his old persona's works. Heartbroken, Belle broke down in despair as it became apparent to her that reasoning with Eggman was a lost cause.[2] Despite this, she has no intention of letting him push her around any longer and wants to tell him a few things in spite. Regardless, she still misses Mr. Tinker and blames herself for not being able to bring him back.[20]

Eventually, Belle accepted that Tinker was gone forever.[20] As such, she started calling Eggman her "father". However, this was only because she had decided to say goodbye to him in order to move on. Belle would soon after stand by her decision, as she would refuse Eggman's offer to join the Eggman Empire, while also promising to take care of every robot that Eggman had abandoned.[22]

Miles "Tails" Prower[編輯 | 編輯原始碼]

Miles "Tails" Prower had a fascination with Belle from the very beginning. He first saw her with Sonic when they were searching for data to fix Omega with. Right from the start, Tails was the only one who showed sympathy and affection towards her, namely by protecting her from the overly impulsive Sonic when he thought that she was just another Badnik to destroy. In fact, he presented himself to her without the slightest sign of spite from her, but with admiration from her for being a robot made of wood, something he had never seen before. Belle, in return, would save Tails twice soon after, earning him his gratitude and managing to convince Sonic of her good intentions. Cream's account of the release of Clutch's former Chao later convinced Tails that Belle would be useful to him in his workshop, so Belle accepted the request. Although he understood that she did not come by accident, but rather intentionally and that she could be a creation of Dr. Eggman's, Tails continues to believe in Belle's kindness and sincerity, in wanting to be of service and help Sonic and the others.[13][8]

Early on, when Tails suspected that Belle had to be an Eggman robot, he was not angry at her, but admitted that he wanted more honesty from her. Also, when he tried asking her about her true creator, only to receive no answer, he merely sighed and put no further pressure on her.[13] After this theory was confirmed however, Tails only showed concerned for Belle's emotional state of being.[2] Nevertheless, he is glad to have her help in his workshop and enjoys working with her on different occasion.[13][20]

Sonic the Hedgehog[編輯 | 編輯原始碼]

Despite knowing about Sonic the Hedgehog's "thing" with robots, Belle decided to follow him and Tails in the hope of finding her creator.[12] When they first met though, Sonic treated her as most other Badniks he had faced and tried to destroy her until Tails interrupted them.[8] Sonic initially remained suspicious about Belle and her creator, but as he began to take notice of Belle's kindness and character, he decided to trust her.[12] When Sonic later learned from Tails and Cream about how Belle had helped them, Sonic was convinced to apologize to Belle for having acted badly towards her and finally accepted her as an ally.[13] He also felt sympathy towards her when he found out that her creator, Mr. Tinker, returned to being Eggman and broke her heart.[2] Belle appreciates Sonic saying she plays an important role in their misadventures.[23] She even stood up to protect Sonic; standing in Metal Sonic's way as he was going straight after an injured Sonic.[24]

Tangle the Lemur[編輯 | 編輯原始碼]

Tangle the Lemur is Belle's former colleague at the Restoration. She met Tangle on her first day at work, where Tangle saved her from an accident she caused and provided her with companionship by sharing her thoughts with her and encouraging her not to give up. Tangle subsequently quickly became friends with Belle after learning of Belle's tail's function, which Tangle qualified as "weird". After that, Tangle named them "weird tail buddies."[10] Belle is comforted by Tangle's optimism and over-confidence despite her own awkwardness.[10] Belle was surprised when Tangle chose to trust her even after she was outed as a Badnik,[3] and she in turn chose to trust Tangle on her risky plan to rescue Sonic and co. from Eggman's test chambers in spite of initially protesting out of fear for her new friend's safety.[15]

Since them, Belle and Tangle have come to greatly care for each other, especially in difficult emotional situations. Tangle in particular was shocked to learn that Belle had been kidnapped by Dr. Starline.[30] Also, when Tangle found Belle with her hand's casing burned of, her first instinct was to help her friend and wrap up her hand.[18]

Dr. Starline[編輯 | 編輯原始碼]

Belle was once kidnapped by Dr. Starline, who valued her as a priceless and unique piece of Eggman technology.[11] While Belle was initially concerned that Starline might want to destroy her, she soon learned that he was the reason Mr. Tinker became Eggman again, causing her to spitefully blame him for taking her father away and ruining her life.[16][11] Even so, Belle felt bad to see Starline mentally broken and left to die after his defeat in Eggperial City.[22]

Motobud[編輯 | 編輯原始碼]

Motobud is a unique Motobug created by Mr. Tinker, Dr. Eggman's kindly alter ego.[20] At first, Belle was scared of him, but when the robot helped put out her burning hand, she realized that there was more to him. In return, Belle protected Motobud from Tangle, who instinctively mistook him for an ordinary Badnik.[18] Belle soon after became attached to Motobud, who began to serve as her mount.[18][19] She also valued him for the fact that his programming might allow other Badniks to break freed from Eggman's control.[19][20] Belle was also not going to give Motobud back to Eggman, which led her to the difficult decision of cutting off his power when he fell under a control signal, despite fearing that she might not be able to restore his functionalities afterwards.[20]

Metal Sonic[編輯 | 編輯原始碼]

As with the other robots made by Dr. Eggman, Belle has displayed great empathy towards Metal Sonic, having risked her own life to fix him. Even so, Belle knows that they are not allies, and that he still remains aligned with Eggman's causes.[22] Belle attempted to reason with Metal Sonic, but the robot slapped her aside, hurting her emotionally more than physically.[24]

Kitsunami the Fennec[編輯 | 編輯原始碼]

Belle was helpful to Kit when he was passed out in Eggperial City. When Kit arose, Belle still insisted on helping him despite Kit refusing and getting in a strum with her. Belle was shocked by Kit's abilities, but didn't treat him and different than her other friends.[24] When Kit was told Surge was gone, Belle comforted him and stayed behind with him in Tails' Lab when Sonic and Tails left. When Kit tried to leave to help them, however, Belle tried to make him stay for his own safety. Kit's mental programing made Sonic his new person to protect since Surge was gone, and he attacked Belle and buried her under some equipment. Despite this, Belle still tried to get through to him as he left the lab.[25]

Trivia[編輯 | 編輯原始碼]

  • Belle was first revealed at the online New York Comic Con IDW Sonic Panel on 9 October 2020.[4]
  • "Mr. Tinker" and Belle's names allude to Tinker Bell.
