T-Rex the Porcupine (also commonly T-Rex) true name Needlemouse the Porcupine, Sonic calls him Mr. Needlemouse (Dr. Needlemouse in the Japanese franchise) as an insult, is a Sonic character first appearing in his own game.


He is a porcupine with the ability to transform into a dragon at will. His size and look differ greatly upon transformation.


"Sire...PLEASE don't call me 'Needlemouse'!"

He is British, which comes from his father. Sometimes he acts like a gentleman, even went so far to teach Knuckles how to be one in the Sonic X remake, Sonic the Pirate!
