Storm Zero Gravity

Storm as he appears in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity.

Storm the Albatross (Sutōmu za Arubatorosu) is a fictional character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series. He is a hulking, anthropomorphic albatross and Jet's right hand man. Standing at a height of 140 cm (4ft 7in) and weighing 80kg (176.3lbs), Storm is an imposing sight and powerful force, capable of destroying just about anything. He is 19 years old. Despite being committed to his duties, Storm has a quick temper and his clumsiness constantly succeeds in embarrassing himself and the other Rogues. He also tends to stutter whenever he becomes excited or when he's in distress. He is a rival of Knuckles the Echidna. He also makes a brief appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a collectable sticker.

During the EX World Grand Prix, Storm loses to Knuckles at the location "Egg Factory". This defeat is compounded by the fact that just before the match they both tried to fight each other (even though they both end up hitting one of Eggman's race robots during the struggle). Later, under orders from Jet, Storm discovers a page of Dr. Eggman's diary stating that Eggman had deceived the Rogues into believing the treasure within the Babylonian Fortress was a gem.

Storm uses Type-S Extreme Gear, which is capable of keeping balance when smashing through obstacles. However, he seems to be the least skilled of the Rogues, partly because Knuckles easily knocks him off his board in the introduction; in the Babylon Rogues story, he falls off his board when meeting Jet and Wave after stealing Eggman's diary entry.

Storm is very loyal to Jet, and believes his loyalty is greater than anyone else's. Because of this, he is always ready for an assignment. Storm's profile on "Sonic Channel" actually lists Jet as one of his "favorite things".


Storm is the strongest member of the Babylon Rogues, but is stereotypically unintelligent. He, like the rest of his team, is a specialist at using Extreme Gear, and often uses his brute strength to knock down other racers.
