An unnamed coyote character appears as an antagonist in Sonic the Comic Issue 14 as host of the Hero of the Year awards taking place in the Metropolis Zone. This character attempts to kill Sonic the Hedgehog on stage by sealing him inside a dome and flooding it with Mega Mack. Sonic escapes the trap and heads back to the Emerald Hill Zone with his award statue, which contains a homing device. The coyote uses this to track Sonic down, hoping to find his secret base. He finds Sonic and Tails waiting on the outskirts and launches a squad of Bonehead Badniks to destroy them. The Badniks are swiftly defeated and the coyote flees, never to be seen again.
