— Official Rampage: Total Destruction description
Icky Is an echidna monster, who made his first appearance in Rampage: Total Destruction.
He was a man who drank Scum Soda and had a violent reaction and turned to a giant echidna-like monster. Icky is unlikely a human name. Icky's real human name is unknown.
- Icky is able to eat cockroaches without getting sick. Real echidnas eat ants, hence why they are often called spiny anteaters.
- Icky's name actually means 'sick and disgusting'. This may be inherited from the fact that his favorite food is cockroaches. It could also be derived from how the first part of "Echidna" is often pronounced.
- Icky may have been inspired by Knuckles the Echidna from the Sonic The Hedgehog game series as both characters have red spines. In addition, Icky's eyes and brow bear similarities to Knuckle's design. Icky's blue fur may also be influenced by Sonic's blue fur.
- Arvin Bautista a graphic artist, shows concept art for Icky that depicts as him having tan fur with a whitish underbelly, light brown spines, and yellow eyes. The art title mentions porky, which may mean that Icky may have been a porcupine originally, rather than an echidna. (Source: http://freesuperheroes.blogspot.co.uk/p/video-game-art.html)
