Mighty the Armadillo is a supporting character in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. His character designer was Manabu Kusunoki.

Mighty is an explorer and a long time acquaintance of Sonic the Hedgehog, and he first appeared in SegaSonic the Hedgehog, where he was voiced by Yūsuke Numata.

He first appeared in the arcade game SegaSonic the Hedgehog, where he was captured by Dr. Robotnik along with Sonic the Hedgehog and Ray the Flying Squirrel. They were taken to Eggman Island and imprisoned, but they made their way through the island's defenses. After the trio got to the control room of Eggman's Tower, Robotnik activates self-destruction of island. Despite that, the whole cast manages to get out of Eggman Island, which got destroyed in the process.

In this game, Mighty played exactly like Sonic and Ray; he was fairly fast and could roll into a ball to perform the Spin Jump. In the game, he was voiced by Yūsuke Numata.

His second appearance and his first appearance on a home console game was in Knuckles' Chaotix for the Sega 32X, an add-on for the Sega Genesis. In the Japanese manual, he just happened to stumble across the island which the adventure is set on during his explorations. In the English manual, he is a friend of Knuckles the Echidna, and happens to visit "Carnival Island" when Robotnik attacks.

In both manuals he is captured by Robotnik, and imprisoned in his Combi Catcher machine. When Knuckles arrives, he can pick Mighty out of the machine and use him as a partner. Mighty plays very much like Sonic from the previous Sonic games, using his Spin Attack and Spin Dash. He also has the ability to kick off walls in order to gain height.

Following the release of Knuckles' Chaotix, Mighty was absent from the Sonic series for 23 years and was omitted from the Chaotix in Sonic Heroes, however, he did make cameos in Gale Racer for the Sega Saturn, where he is an ornament alongside Sonic and Ray, and Sonic Generations, where he appears on a missing poster with Ray in the City Escape level.

He eventually returned to the franchise in Sonic Mania Plus alongside Ray the Flying Squirrel, where he got captured by Dr. Eggmanand imprisoned together with who appeared to be Ray in a capsule on Angel Island. Eventually, the Phantom Rubyshowed up at their location, with Mighty's old friend, Sonic arriving soon after. After Sonic freed Mighty and Ray from their capsule however, Ray was revealed to be the Heavy Magician in disguise. The robot proceeded to take the Phantom Ruby and flee with it. Though Sonic and Mighty gave chase, they were too late to stop the Heavy Magician from using the Phantom Ruby to revive the Hard Boiled Heavies who had been destroyed. The robots' resurrection also warped them all to Green Hill Zone. There, the revived Hard Boiled Heaves ran off with the Phantom Ruby. Mighty subsequently teamed up with Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and the real Ray to search for the Phantom Ruby.

The group was eventually attacked by Dr. Eggman and his Death Egg Robot. Even so, they managed to defeat Eggman, causing him to fall into a hole. Following Eggman, Mighty and co. saw Eggman take the Phantom Ruby from the Hard Boiled Heaves, who refused to obey him. Once Eggman obtained the ruby, Mighty and his group got sent to Chemical Plant Zoneby the gem's power. Not set back by their displacement, Mighty and co. continued their pursuit of Eggman, occasionally clashing with the Hard Boiled Heavies and other foes along the way. Whenever they caught up to Eggman however, the doctor either gave them the slip or sent them away with the Phantom Ruby.

Eventually, Mighty and co. found out that Dr. Eggman had used the power of the Phantom Ruby to make Little Planet reappear in its mechanized state again. There, Eggman and the Hard Boiled Heavies had rebuilt their base of operations: the Titanic Monarch. Eventually, the heroic group made their way to the heart of the rebuilt Titanic Monarch where they faced Eggman in his Phantom Egg mech and four of the recently re-upgraded Phantom Heavies. Despite the odds, Mighty and co. managed to defeat Eggman, resulting in the Phantom Ruby creating a rift that began devouring the Titanic Monarch. Assuming their Super States with the aid of the Chaos Emeralds however, Mighty and his group escaped the rift, whereas Eggman got swallowed by it. Afterward, Mighty and co. closed off their adventure with a trip to an ice cream parlor, only for the Heavy King to make an appearance and surprise them with a sundae.

He also appears in the animated miniseries Sonic Mania Adventures At some point, Mighty went missing, prompting his friend Ray the Flying Squirrel to go look for him. During his absence, Mighty managed to find a Chaos Emerald.

Mighty would soon find Ray being attacked by Metal Sonicand rushed to his side to defend him. Mighty was able to briefly incapacitate Metal Sonic but soon found himself faced with an ultimatum. Metal Sonic held Ray in a chokehold and demanded Mighty's Chaos Emerald in order to release him. Having no choice but to comply, Mighty gave the evil robot his Emerald and watched him fly away despite attempting to stop him. He then helped Ray do a quick reconnaissance to find Metal Sonic flying towards an unknown fortress. Ray informed Mighty of this and they chased after the robot.

Having arrived at Dr. Eggman's base, Mighty and Ray found a Chaos Emerald-powered Metal Sonic fighting Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles "Tails" Prower. He and Ray joined the duo in their fight against the robot but to no avail. Tails soon managed to trap Metal Sonic and strip him of all the Chaos Emeralds. Eggman then attempted to use the Master Emerald to empower Metal Sonic and finish the four heroes off, but both villains were stopped by Knuckles. With nothing else to do, Mighty joined Sonic, Tails and Ray on a small picnic with chili dogs.
