Mammoth Mogul

From Sonic Blur

Mammoth Mogul is a major antagonist of the comics, and is to Miles "Tails" Prower what Dr. Eggman is to Sonic or what Dimitri is to Knuckles the Echidna.

Mogul is a large, anthropomorphic, humanoid wooly mammoth, originally clad in a white double-breasted suit, which has since changed color to become purple (though the white one made a comeback in the most recent issues). In flashbacks he has been seen wearing a toga made from animal skins, and on a number of occasions in both the past and the present he has donned gold or green armor. When wearing the gold, he wore a red cape; the green armor came with an under-outfit of matching hue.



Distant Past

Mogul was originally a woolly mammoth in the early history of Mobius, always dreaming of gaining more from life. One day, a Chaos Emerald fell from the sky and became embedded in his chest, granting him enormous power. Despite his vast abilities, Mogul lacked the knowledge of the Chaos Emeralds to correctly wield them, and was driven from his herd. With the immortaility the emerald granted him, Mogul lived for centuries, becoming wise and powerful, and founded what would become the mystical Order of Ixis. Through this arcane brotherhood, Mammoth Mogul trained others to wield elemental energies, becoming known as Ixis Mogul. However, he was once more dethroned when the order of Ixis was defeated during the Forgotten War by the Albion Knights of Aurora. He then vanished, apparently going into some form of hibernation to retain his youth.

Rivalry with Tails

In modern times, his first attempt at gaining even greater power began with his theft of the Chaos Emerald that served as the power supply for Angel Island (then known as the Floating Island). Calculating that the direct approach would be doomed to failure, Mogul fought the Freedom Fighters and Chaotix for possession of the Sword of Acorns. Duping them into believing he was dead and tricking the heroes with a false copy of the blade, Mogul retreated to lie low until the he commenced the next phase of his intricate plot.

The second phase of Mogul's plan began when he freed Knuckles' ancestor Enerjak from his exile in space and returned him to Mobius and, during the confusion of Enerjak's attack on Echidnaopolis, used the genuine Sword of Acorns to steal the power of eleven Chaos Emeralds that fueled Enerjak, gaining the practically omnipotent might of twelve Chaos Emeralds and taking the name Master Mogul.

Attempting to drain the power from the remaining Emeralds on the Floating Island, Mogul found himself challenged by combined forces of Super Sonic, Turbo Tails, Hyper Knuckles, the Brotherhood of Guardians, the Chaotix, the Freedom Fighters, the Ancient Walkers and other parties. Despite successfully absorbing the energies of the other Chaos Emeralds, Mogul's power and life force became trapped in the new Master Emerald. Knuckles expressed his concerns about this, but could do nothing about it.

Escaping when Dr. Eggman shattered the Master Emerald to feed Chaos, Mogul used the last embers of his power to wound the Ancient Walkers, which steadily lead to their deaths. Capturing Turbo Tails, he drained enough power from him to challenge Chaos Knuckles, who at the time was in essence a living Chaos Emerald. Drawing Knuckles out by taking the dying Enerjak hostage, Mogul trapped him inside a giant Chaos Syphon, which Knuckles seemingly overloaded and destroyed. At the time, both Knuckles and Mogul seemed to have died, but in truth, the Echidna's life was transitory whilst Mammoth Mogul was omnipotent once more. Using his revitalized power, Mogul transformed into Master Mogul a second time and started to destroy the multiverse. This time, Mogul was challenged by an army of multi-dimensional Tails counterparts, but was not brought down until Tails merged with them to become the colossal Titan Tails.

Teamup with Ixis Naugus

Mammoth Mogul made his return when the children of Uma Arachnis use the Sword of Acorns to cause a dimensional rift leading to the Zone of Silence in the Egg Grape Chamber, killing the Ancient Walkers and breaking their curse on Mogul's Emerald. With the curse gone, Mogul was able to free himself while Tail's uncle, the powerful wizard Merlin Prower was holding his emerald. Despite not being at the peak of his power, Mogul quickly struck Merlin down and absorbed his emerald once more. After liberating the Destructix from jail to serve as his minions, he stole the Crown of Acorns.

To everyone's surprise, Mogul was temporarily halted by none other than Ixis Naugus, who hoped to usurp Mogul's powers. Fighting each other to a standstill, Mogul revealed to Naugus his foundation of the Order of Ixis. In a terrible twist of fate for the heroes, Naugus acknowledges Mammoth Mogul's superiority and pledges himself to Mogul's teachings. This granted Mogul in control of both the Sword and Crown of Acorns and Naugus' minions, the Arachne.

Restarting the battle, Mogul became locked in a contest of swordplay with Sir Connery, Paladin of the Ancient Walkers, who channeled his spiritual energy and life force through his Sword of Light to destroy the artifacts of Acorn, vanquishing the corrupted Source of All and diminishing Mogul's power at the cost of his own life. Despite this setback, Mogul prepared himself for a fight with Sonic, only to come under attack from Dr. Robotnik's Egg Fleet. Using weapons specially tailored to affect Chaos energy, Robotnik managed to imprison Mogul, Naugus and their minions in his Egg Grape Power Chamber.

Rouge the Bat revealed that Mogul managed to escape, claiming that he had 'abandoned' the still captive Destructix and Arachne, accompanied only by rather dumbed down Naugus, possibly because they were the only two who had a chance of escaping. A.D.A.M. later claimed to have released him, granting the Mammoth his freedom in exchange for his Chaos Emerald (later verified by Mogul himself). This was part of A.D.A.M.'s larger plan, which involved gathering every Chaos Emerald in the universe. Some time later, he was lured into a sting operation by Rouge the Bat, who had spread word that she had stolen the Master Emerald and was auctioning off the powerful gem. Despite his claims of still being a formidable opponent despite lacking the power of his Emerald, he was still easily defeated by the Freedom Fighters and taken into custody along with Naugus, Nack the Weasel, Bark the Polar Bear, and Bean the Dynamite.


Egotistical to a fault, Mogul sees himself as the end all of intelligence and power. While not obsessed with himself, he sees all other entities as lower forms of life, useful only as pawns in his schemes for power. Mogul also cares nothing for such pawns, and is perfectly willing to kill them to achieve what he wants. Combined with a total lack of care for any of his minions, this makes working for him unappealing, and only his sheer power holds the loyalty of those who serve him. He thinks himself infallible, and always refuses to believe that he can be defeated even when the odds are clearly against him.


Thanks to the Chaos Emerald embedded in his chest, Mogul commands Chaos Energy. In order to achieve mastery of this force, he formed the Order of Ixis. As a result, he can also use Ixian Magic on an even higher level than Ixis Naugus. Thanks to these abilities, Mogul is capable of warping reality on a massive scale.

Mammoth Mogul is also one of the few villains with his own super form. When charged with immense amounts of power, he can become Master Mogul--making him one of the few villains with a Super Transformation. This has happened on various occasions, the first time being when he used the Sword of Acorns to drain the powers of Enerjak, thus giving himself the power of 12 Chaos Emeralds. Later, Mammoth Mogul absorbed the power of Chaos Knuckles, and thanks to that was able to assume complete command of the Chaos Force. In his second appearance, Mogul had the power to crush entire universes with his bare hands.

Being a mammoth, Mogul is also stronger than the average Mobian, which is only enhanced by his powers. However, Mogul's most dangerous muscle is his brain. A genius of caliber equal or greater to Dimitri and Dr. Eggman, Mammoth Mogul poses a threat to anyone he pits himself against.


  • In issue #153, Mogul's character is adapted by Sally Acorn's nannie Rosie into Mog the Troll as part of a bed time story.
