The Shaman is a character from Sonic the Hedgehog story Earth Spirits. The shaman is part of a Native American tribe on Earth who believes that spirits will appear to them and save them from the cowboys. His leader, Chief Thundercloud, has no patience for his words, yet the shaman finds words of comfort from Moon River.
His prayers seem to be answered when Sonic the Hedgehog and Amy Rose appear from nowhere to drive off the invaders. However, Sonic reveals himself to not be a spirit and the hedgehogs are tied up. Some time later, the cowboys return but are sent scurrying by what seems to be spirits, since Sonic and Amy are still bound by ropes.
With the day saved by "spirits", the shaman's position in the tribe seems to be secure with Chief Thundercloud finally believing his words.
