In Sonic the Comic, Microputers are small handheld computers used by the Flock, an all-sheep resistance movement opposing the rule of Dr. Robotnik. During the Zonerunner stories, the Flock used Microputers to hack into various systems throughout the Chemical Plant Zone. Tails even used a Microputer to open a doorway in order to escape the crazed robot Nutzan Bolt and in his panic he repeatedly yelled at the Microputer to close the door as Nutzan closed in. The device accepted each of Tails' panicked cries as separate orders and, as Nutzan Bolt entered the doorway, the Microputer opened and closed door three times, crushing Nutzan's body.
