Mina Mongoose (dubbed Songoose for her singing talents) is a fictional character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series. She is a yellow, female, teenage, anthropomorphic mongoose. Mina has purple hair held back by a black headband, and green eyes.
She debuted in the Sonic Archie Comics in issue #76 where she was captured by Dr. Robotnik and rescued by Sonic the Hedgehog. She is one of three girls (the other two being Princess Sally Acorn and Amy Rose) well known for competing for the affections of Sonic the Hedgehog.
Mina is the 16 year-old daughter of Isabella Mongoose and the late Arthur Mongoose. A schoolgirl in love with Mobius' most renowned hero, Mina is also a heroine in her own right. Recently she has enjoyed a highly successful singing career, and has become one of Mobius' biggest celebrities.
Originally, Mina's outfit consisted of a black tank top, brown shorts, and green boots and gloves. Later on, her tanktop became violet in the front with black straps, and a skirt of matching design.
