The Deadly Six (六鬼衆 Roku Kishū?, lit. "Six Oni") is a villainous group of six Zeti that are the major antagonists in Sonic Lost World. In Sonic Lost World, Doctor Eggman harnesses the power of the Deadly Six in an attempt to defeat Sonic the Hedgehog and conquer the world. However, the Deadly Six rise up against Eggman and break free, threatening to destroy the world on their own. As a result, Eggman is forced to team up with Sonic in order to stop them for good.
Concept and Creation
According to Takashi Iizuka, the Deadly Six are meant to bring a “sense of danger and humor” to the story of Sonic Lost World. According to an interview with Takashi Iizuka at Summer of Sonic 2013, the Deadly Six are based off of "oni", which is a Japanese demon.
- Zavok: is one of the Deadly Six and the member behind the destruction of the world and the depletion of Sonic. Zavok is the leader of the six.
- Zazz: is one of the members of the Deadly Six in plans for the destruction of the world. He is the more short-tempered and hot-headed member of the six.
- Zeena: is a member of the Deadly Six and the only female member who is also is in the plan for the destruction of the world.
- Master Zik: is one of the members of the Deadly Six and the oldest member of the six. Zik is the founder of the six and appears to have taught both Zavok and Zazz.
- Zomom: is a member of the Deadly Six and the largest member of the six.
- Zor: is a member of the Deadly Six. He carries a blue rose with him at all times.
- The Deadly Six are most likely killed at the end of their final battles, but Eggman saying he'll find another conch and control the Zeti again has suggested to some that they are still alive. It could be that Eggman didn't know they were dead, that he was planning to revive them with Chaos Emeralds, or that there are other Zeti besides the Deadly Six.
