- Not to be confused with the Ancient Walkers.
The Ancients were an ancient civilization of Mobians in the Sonic Boom Zone. They developed advanced technology and discovered the Lost Crystal of Power, but were plagued by the betrayal of one of their own. Lyric the Last Ancient set out to achieve ultimate power, and the other Ancients were forced to imprison him by shattering the Lost Crystal. Knowing that he would eventually return, the Ancients scattered the crystal fragments. Over time the rest of the civilization disappeared, until only their technology and the eventually freed Lyric remained. (SB: SCDC)
- The Ancients appear to have been made up of Mobians from various races.
- Due to the virtual extinction of their culture and SEGA restrictions, the Ancients appear only in the Shattered Crystal Digital Comic.
