— 贝尔, Sonic the Hedgehog #35

贝尔[1] 是一位出现在由IDW Publishing出版的刺猬索尼克漫画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,由蛋头博士在他患有失忆症并被称为“修补匠先生”时创造。[2][3] 贝尔的设计基于索尼克的世界中的一种女性拟人动物。与普通Badnik不同,贝尔的外壳完全由木头制成。[4]

概念与创作[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

贝尔是由Evan Stanley构思和设计的,她提出了贝尔的粗略角色弧线和设计。[4][5] IDW的团队希望引入一位具有可识别设计和概念的角色,使她们在索尼克的世界和角色中脱颖而出,又能融入其中。最终决定贝尔将是一个机器人(一个常见概念)并设计成木偶娃娃(一个新概念)。[4][5]

贝尔的设计部分受到了huldra(一种斯堪的纳维亚神话生物)的启发,特别是她的尾巴。[6][7] 在她的提案中,她有一个围裙,围裙口袋里装有工具,有深色的脸颊,没有下巴线条,和光秃的肩膀。[5] 斯坦利最初还提出了贝尔作为一个明确的动物物种,即一只老鼠,因为她“不确定贝尔非特定的木偶性质会如何发展。”[5][6] 但最终决定她不会基于任何特定的动物。这是因为斯坦利在设计她时意识到她不需要是任何特定的物种,这也增加了她的整体奇异性并赋予了更多的原创性。[6] 在设计的后期阶段,世嘉要求Stanley在贝尔嘴巴下方添加下巴线条,以明确她是一个机器人并使她看起来更像木偶。[4][5]

外观[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

贝尔是一个机器人,有一个金属骨架和完全由橡木硬木制成的外壳,[8]赋予了她木偶娃娃的外观。她的造型像一种拟人动物,拥有橙色的皮毛和棕黄色的口鼻部,以及中等长度的辫子,辫子尾部用绿色发带束起,额头上有一个大的毛茸茸的头发团。她还有蓝色的眼睛,每颊三个雀斑,像兔子一样的门牙,和一个粉红色的圆鼻子(类似小丑鼻子)。她的四根睫毛末端很粗,而她的手臂和腿则是棕黄色的,呈矩形。最后,她有一条橙色的线,线尾有一个绒毛球,作为尾巴。至于服装,她穿着一件粉红色的衬衫,肩膀蓬松,领子是白色的,一顶尖尖的绿帽子,绿色的连体裤,上面有黄色的扣子和短蓬松的裤腿,白色带褶边的袜子,以及粉红色的玛丽珍鞋,鞋上有黄色的扣子。尽管她的手也似乎戴着手套,但它们实际上只是白色的,附有假的白色褶皱设计的袖口。

修补匠先生和贝尔,来自刺猬索尼克 #44.

由“修补匠先生”使用Badnik零件制作而成,[3][9]贝尔被创造成为他的小助手,帮助他在机械车间等地方工作。[2][10]贝尔称修补匠先生为她的“爸爸”,[9]非常爱她的创造者。[11]

贝尔乐于花时间修理修补匠先生为风车村孩子们创造的玩具和游乐设施。当他开始向村民们介绍贝尔时,他们对她感到紧张,但愿意给贝尔一个机会。然而,有一天,贝尔发现修补匠先生消失了。不久后,恢复了蛋头博士身份的修补匠先生驾驶面具船攻击风车村,并将金属病毒倾倒进村庄。由于金属病毒无法影响贝尔,她躲避了变成僵尸机器人的村民们。在僵尸机器人离开后,贝尔独自留在被遗弃的风车村,感到非常孤独。然而,当僵尸机器人末日事件后来被避免并且治愈的村民们返回村庄时,贝尔发现村民们指责她,认为她是蛋头博士的间谍。[11]人们告诉她,修补匠先生一直是作为蛋头博士的怪物,但贝尔不愿相信。[2]贝尔心情沉重地看到村民们拆除并回收修补匠先生建造的一切,当她试图修复东西时,村民们只是对她感到愤怒。[11]最终,贝尔离开去寻找蛋头博士。[9][11]她希望如果能和他交谈,也许能说服他回到修补匠先生的身份。[11]

作为她计划的一部分,贝尔决定找到蛋头博士,以确认其他人所说的是谎言,如果不是,她至少希望说服她的创造者放弃邪恶的方式。[2]在她的搜索过程中,她在风车村附近发现了一个废弃的蛋头博士基地。[8][9]

索尼克与贝尔对战,来自刺猬索尼克 #34

索尼克塔尔斯进入废弃的蛋头博士基地时,贝尔会在基地的阴影中潜行,避开两位男孩的注意,并后来藏在一堆废弃机器人中。[9] 最终,当索尼克无意中踢到一个螺丝钉时,贝尔从藏身之处掉了出来。索尼克立刻误以为她是一个Badnik并攻击她,同时试图猜出她的名字。然而,贝尔不断避开索尼克的攻击,直到他拉了她的尾巴。这使得她本能地用双腿踢了索尼克一脚,之后她为此道歉。最终,塔尔斯阻止了索尼克,并向贝尔解释说他们通常遇到的机器人属于蛋头博士的军队。贝尔解释说她不是蛋头博士创造的,而是另一个她一直在寻找的创造者创造的。塔尔斯同样对她完全由木头制成感到印象深刻。然而,他们被基地内触发的警报打断,这是因为塔尔斯忘记关闭当地计算机的防火墙。节拍器随后到达并包围了英雄们。当索尼克和塔尔斯讨论如何摆脱当前困境时,贝尔注意到一个蛋头守护者正试图抓住塔尔斯。因此,她推开了塔尔斯,结果自己被机器人困住。幸运的是,塔尔斯摧毁了蛋守护者并解救了贝尔。索尼克随后告诉贝尔,他们将不得不利用她不寻常的能力,因为周围的情况变得更糟。[8]

在塔尔斯为他们制造了一个逃生路线后,贝尔在塔尔斯被一个蛋守护者抓住时,通过一个跳跃将塔尔斯从蛋守护者的抓握中解救出来,这是在她的尾巴被拉动后完成的。索尼克随后将他们俩拖出基地。之后,贝尔请求他们带她一起去白色公园区,因为她当前的藏身处已被机器人占领。在塔尔斯说服索尼克同意让她加入后,后者让贝尔选择了龙卷风的一个翼蹼一路飞往白色公园区,但她并不喜欢这次飞行。在白色公园大酒店下车后,贝尔仍然因飞行而感到摇晃不已。艾咪随后带领贝尔和索尼克去了克拉奇负鼠的套房,后者躺在地板上昏迷不醒。与此同时,奶油兔想要释放克拉奇关在笼子里的Chao,笼子上有许多锁。听到这个,贝尔决定帮助奶油兔打开笼子,因为修补是她的专长。奶油兔随后向贝尔介绍了自己。不久之后,克拉奇起身并激活了他套房内的机器人,然后自己逃跑了。贝尔随后再次被敌对的机器人包围。[12] 在其他人的保护下,贝尔努力打开囚禁奇奥的笼子,但遇到了一些棘手的挂锁。最终,她打开了挂锁,奇奥帮助摧毁了机器人。塔尔斯和Rouge随后出现,警告他们一场雪崩正在向酒店逼近。英雄们试图疏散酒店,但斯塔莱恩博士很快出现并阻挡了他们的去路。在斯塔莱恩被牵制时,塔尔斯告诉贝尔,斯塔莱恩只是个蛋头博士的模仿者。然而,当斯

塔兰抓住塔尔斯并试图绑架他时,塔尔斯拉了贝尔的尾巴,使她直接踢中了斯塔莱恩的喙,让英雄们得以在雪崩袭击酒店并埋葬了斯塔莱恩时逃脱。索尼克后来向贝尔道歉,因为他最初如何对待她,后来发现她是如何帮助他的朋友的。而塔尔斯则轮流请她帮助他在他的工作室里,这是贝尔热情地接受了。后来在工作室里,贝尔帮助塔尔斯修复了欧米茄。之后,塔尔斯注意到她可以毫无问题地阅读蛋头博士的密码,这是只有蛋头博士本人或他的创造物才能做到的。然而,贝尔仍然坚持蛋头博士没有创造她,并拒绝直接回答塔尔斯的问题。[13]

贝尔的失误被探戈狐猴修复,来自刺猬索尼克 #37

贝尔随后由索尼克塔尔斯带到复兴联盟的新总部,希望贝尔加入该组织并给她一个新家。在那里,他们受到了艾咪珠儿的欢迎。贝尔说她擅长木工活,珠儿便派她去了机器工作室。在那里,贝尔试图帮助负责人,但她的笨拙只给自己带来了麻烦。当一辆叉车后来碾过她的尾巴时,贝尔本能地踢了她所携带的箱子到一个悬挂在框架上的船上,打破了它的束缚。这在车间引起了恐慌,但探戈迅速来到并阻止了船的坠落。然而,贝尔因为她的失误而失去了车间的工作。探戈带着贝尔走时,贝尔向探戈坦白她在复兴联盟的困难时光。另一方面,探戈很快对贝尔尾巴的功能感到兴奋,她感到有共鸣。不久后,他们都听说了一个新的蛋头博士塔楼的传闻,该塔楼正在海岸外引发不自然的风暴。探戈和贝尔于是去找珠儿,那里他们遇到了索尼克、塔尔斯和艾咪。当其他人在交谈时,贝尔想知道蛋头博士是否可能在塔楼里。然而,她拒绝说出来,因为这样她就不得不解释自己。尽管如此,她还是给了探戈一个想法,两人可以自己去塔楼,帮助索尼克调查。贝尔随后带探戈去了一个未使用的大爆炸 极限装备,她已经热线接通了。紧接着,贝尔和探戈骑着它离开了总部。[10] 到达蛋头博士的塔楼后,贝尔和探戈在降落时撞毁了大爆炸,失去了他们的一种逃生手段。经过塔楼入口前破碎的机器人,贝尔跟随探戈进入塔楼,注意到墙上的蛋头帝国徽章。不久后,他们进入了一个满是机器人的房间。在没有被机器人发现的情况下,贝尔和探戈攀爬塔楼的内部,直到他们遇到了小欧小秋,它们正在讨论索尼克、塔尔斯和艾咪,他们已经闯入塔楼并进入了蛋头博士机器人的测试室。在看到这对机器人将这些消息传达给蛋头博士后,贝尔问探戈她听到的是否是蛋头博士的声音。探戈确认后,开始前往帮助索尼克,而贝尔不小心滑倒,正好掉在一些蛋头士兵面前。然而,蛋子卒没有发现贝尔。贝尔随后被探戈拉了起来,探戈要求解释。因此,贝尔告诉她她自己是一个Badnik,并且她来到塔楼是为了从蛋头博士那里寻找有关她起源的答案。她向探戈保证,她不想伤害任何人,但也理解探戈如果不信任她。然而令她惊讶的是,探戈选择了无论如何都信任她,两人继续寻找索尼克等人。[3]

贝尔和探戈不久后找到并制约了小欧和小秋。然后,他们试图让这对机器人告诉他们设施内哪个传送门会把他们带到索尼克、塔尔斯和艾咪那里。与此同时,贝尔重定向了蛋子卒巡逻队,以便他们不能干预他们的审问。当探戈后来从小欧和小秋那里得到她需要的信息时,她试图进入一个传送门去营救索尼克等人,但贝尔阻止了她,因为她担心她的安全。然而,她被探戈说服,让她这样做,并允许探戈进入传送门。[15] 在等待探戈时,贝尔会在小欧试图向她提问时怒斥他,并坚称她不是一个常规的Badnik。随后,她犹豫地向他和小秋询问了他们与蛋头博士的关系。当他们解释自己作为他的助手机器人的职责时,贝尔温情地回忆起修补匠先生的习惯,直到她突然收到了蛋头博士通过小欧和小秋的平板电脑打来的电话。看到贝尔后,蛋头博士回忆起他是如何制造贝尔的,而贝尔在面对她的创造者时感到恐惧。然而,在蛋头博士挂断电话之前,绝望的贝尔问他为何要进行残忍的行动和她所在的塔楼。听到蛋头博士只是为了犯罪而制造塔楼,心碎的贝尔中断了通话。然而,贝尔随后注意到通往测试室的传送门正在喷射能量,小欧透露这是塔楼即将内爆的迹象。当探戈稍后带着索尼克的团队返回时,贝尔警告所有人危险。在索尼克带领大家逃出塔楼后,团队在龙卷风上逃离了塔楼,然后塔楼内爆了。在与小欧和小秋告别后,贝尔向她的朋友坦白了她的过去,以及她希望蛋头博士回到他作为“修补匠先生”时的旧模式的希望被粉碎了。不过,探戈稍后安慰她说,她今天做了很多好事,这会让修补匠先生感到骄傲。[2]

贝尔责怪斯塔莱恩博士让蛋头博士回归,来自刺猬索尼克 #44

贝尔后来在斯塔莱恩的临时藏身处醒来,被重新束缚并接入了斯塔莱恩的电脑。在那里,经过与斯塔莱恩的短暂对话后,斯塔莱恩告诉她,她是一个极其独特的商品,不管她对自己的看法如何,自己都没有拆卸她的意图,因为尽管和蛋头分道扬镳,他本人仍然尊重蛋头博士的工作。贝尔回怼说她不是蛋头博士的创造物。然而,斯塔莱恩回答说这只是半真的,接着告诉她他如何恢复蛋头博士的记忆。他还补充说,没有他的“修补匠先生”人格,蛋头博士永远不会再制造像贝尔这样的机器人,所以他想要彻底研究她。愤怒的贝尔随后开始责怪斯塔莱恩让她失去了她的“父亲”,但斯塔莱恩只对他从贝尔身上获取的模拟情感数据感兴趣。贝尔随后被斯塔莱恩说服,告诉他她的故事。然而,她很快注意到斯塔莱恩只对他从她那里获取的数据感兴趣。贝尔随后注意到一个“幽灵”试图释放她,这让她吓坏了。然而,“幽灵”原来是艾斯皮奥卡奥蒂斯小队随后闯入斯塔莱恩的藏身处。然而,斯塔莱恩已经从贝尔那里得到并保护了他所需的数据,随后摧毁了他的电脑,并利用他的Tricore逃脱了卡奥蒂斯小队。贝库特随后试图安慰心碎的贝尔,向她保证她并不孤单,她的朋友们在等着她。[11]

火之试炼[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

不久后,贝尔与艾咪探戈珠儿一起去野营,放松身心,尽管贝尔会被最近事件的想法困扰。最终到达森林脊区露营地后,该组从营地管理员那里得知要小心使用火源,因为这个季节森林很干燥。当贝尔帮忙搭建营地时,艾咪抱怨塔尔斯忘记为他们准备基本必需品,比如火柴。作为补偿,贝尔不情愿地向她展示了她内置的打火机。那天晚上,贝尔和其他人通过艾咪的命运牌预测了他们的未来。然而,当艾咪犹豫不决地揭示贝尔的未来时,贝尔的笨拙导致艾咪的牌掉进了篝火中。作为补偿,艾咪用替代牌告诉了贝尔她的未来,但贝尔不相信她所说的。晚上,贝尔去散步,只发现了一个索尼克形状的灌木丛和一些噪音。当她用打火机照亮周围时,她被摩托虫撞倒,并被摩托虫打晕了。[17]

摩托虫帮助贝尔熄灭了她手上的火,来自刺猬索尼克 #46

当贝尔醒来时,她简短地看到了两个身影,然后注意到她的右手壳已被烧毁。她还发现摩托虫从当前的森林大火中救了她,贝尔怀疑是她用打火机引起的。探戈不久后出现,贝尔立刻保护摩托虫免受探戈的注意。在探戈为她的手包扎后,贝尔随后与她和摩托虫一起去找公园管理员的儿子,阿什。最终,他们在一个峡谷的另一边找到了他和炽热。然而,当贝尔和探戈开始不受控制地滑向峡谷时,摩托虫让他们都骑上了它,通过协作,他们越过了峡谷。在阿什告诉他们谁引起了森林大火后,贝尔从之前认出了他,她、探戈、阿什、炽热和摩托虫试图逃离燃烧的森林。不幸的是,他们被一棵倒下的树迫到了峡谷边缘。当贝尔和其他人悬挂在边缘时,悬崖崩塌,他们都落入了下面的河流中。[18]

落入河中后,小组找到了一段木头抓住,贝尔紧紧抓住探戈的尾巴。在他们乘坐波涛汹涌的河流时,贝尔设法让开始哭泣的阿什保持冷静。在这次旅行中,贝尔惊叹于探戈如何在这种情况下茁壮成长,以及她梦想像冒险家那样生活。最终登陆营地后,艾咪和珠儿找到了贝尔和她的小组。贝尔随后帮助阿什去找他的父亲,并向一个害怕的珠儿保证摩托虫是友好的。尽管如此,火势仍在蔓延。然而,当珠儿想出一个扑灭火势的主意时,贝尔的朋友们决定联手帮助实现它。贝尔虽然犹豫,但还是加入了他们的团队欢呼,然后开始帮助被卷入珠儿计划中的露营者和摩托虫。在森林大火得到控制并庆祝之后,贝尔获得了一定的自信,并看到探戈告诉珠儿她要退出复兴联盟。尽管如此,珠儿理解了她的决定,并允许了她。后来,贝尔来到了塔尔斯的工作室,那里塔尔斯修好了她的手。之后,他们将注意力转向了摩托虫,塔尔斯计划检查它,希望找出是否可以让其他较小的机器人像它那样违背它们的编程。[19]

贝尔、索尼克和塔尔斯随后在塔尔斯的工作室开始对他们收集的较小机器人进行实验。在小组隔离了摩托虫的非攻击性子程序后,贝尔通过迈尔斯电子无线传输它们到其他机器人,这使得他们在索尼克的面前变得温顺。他们的实验成功后,贝尔希望以这种方式拯救其他机器人。之后,贝尔在外面与摩托虫呆了一会儿。然而,晚上,贝尔接收到一个信标信号,促使她前往一个特定位置。当塔尔斯挡住她的去路时,贝尔试图攻击他,但索尼克介入并将她控制住。当贝尔和摩托虫设法压制住索尼克时,塔尔斯带着一种原型泽蒂阻断器回来,打破了对贝尔的信号控制。恢复过来的贝尔告诉她的朋友们,信号在召唤一支机器人军队,她打算给蛋头博士一些她的想法。然而,贝尔无法告诉他们应该前往哪里,她、索尼克和塔尔斯只好放开摩托虫,并跟随它前往信号的来源。在途中,他们发现人们被机器人包围,但索尼克设法让他们摆脱了机器人。继续追踪后,三人最终在数小时的追逐后到达了一片树林,帝国城就在他们前面。贝尔随后试图阻止摩托虫,这引起了周围机器人的注意。在尝试拯救他们并让摩托虫远离蛋头博士的尝试中,贝尔痛苦地选择切断摩托虫的电源,尽管这有永久性停用它的风险,同时索尼克和塔尔斯抵挡住机器人。尽管贝尔的计划奏效,机器人恢复了他们无意识的行军,但她也在摩托虫内找到了来自修补匠先生的书面告白。尽管贝尔现在知道修补匠先生确实已永远失去了,索尼克鼓励她继续与他们一起向前进。贝尔因此选择与索尼克和塔尔斯一起进入帝国城进行调查。[20][21]

贝尔向她的“父亲”告别,来自刺猬索尼克 #50

贝尔被索尼克带到了帝国城。索尼克建议她留在后面,但她想知道是什么使得机器人聚集到城市中。当他们接近城市中心时,贝尔看到了一个严重损坏的金属索尼克,并决定修理它,说她不能抛弃需要帮助的机器人。塔尔斯反对,但这两位英雄随后被瑟吉基特带走了。贝尔看到一大群机器人开始向她靠近。她把金属索尼克带到另一个房间躲避机器人,并利用自己作为路由器,允许泽蒂阻断器阻止控制金属索尼克的城市指挥信号。金属索尼克重新上线后,贝尔担心机器人会攻击她。金属索尼克随后在她身后猛击,阻止了一只摩托虫攻击他们。惊讶的贝尔检查了他的文件,发现金属索尼克将她识别为蛋头科技。她还发现金属索尼克与蛋头网络的连接让他知道蛋头博士的位置。贝尔随后决定带着金属索尼克去找蛋头博士,因为金属索尼克走出她的范围将失去他们之间的连接。他们乘坐电梯下到城市深处。

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[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

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[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

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[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

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]

Relationships[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

Dr. Eggman[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

File:EggmanBelle40.jpg
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[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

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[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

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[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

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[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

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[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

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[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

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[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

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[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

  • 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.
  • Belle was originally planned to be introduced in the 2021 annual, then be incorporated into the main story when the opportunity arose. Alternatively, another option was for her story to be self-contained. However, after the annual was replaced with the 30th Anniversary Special, her introduction was moved to the main issues and her storyline was expanded and repurposed to connect several different story arcs post-Metal Virus.[31]
  • According to writer Evan Stanley, while Belle's chronological age is only around a year and a half, she is programmed to be like a 13-year-old.[32]
