On the newest Sonic game Charmy is 6 years old.
Weight: 22 lbs.
Charmy has a sharp stinger that has venom in it. Unlike a real bee, Charmy's stinger doesn't pull off after he has stung someone. Charmy can keep on stinging his target until it is immobilized.
Charmy has two small wings that he uses to fly. Even know his wings are small, Charmy can carry Vector and Espio and still fly.
Charmy Bee is a young, childish anthropomorphic bee. In the US Manual of Knuckles' Chaotix, Charmy was labeled as being 16 years of age; however, with the release of Sonic Heroes, his age has been retconned to 6. It should be noted however that the Japanese manual for Chaotix didn't list an age for Charmy, as it did for the other characters.
Charmy is hyperactive, scatter-brained, loud and immature. He would rather play than work. He is not as skilled a detective as Vector or Espio, but he is nonetheless valuable to the team. He is also the most friendly and optimistic of all Chaotix members. At some times, Charmy will burst out and do completely random and crazy things.
Charmy, like many other Sonic characters, can run at high speed, but is mostly known for his flying ability, as he is the flight character in Sonic Heroes. He can use his stinger as a method of attack when he is alone and has the abilities to somehow warp between large flowers, helping him and his friends to get around obstacles and complete their missions more quickly. In the game, if the team does not get all of the items by the time they finish a zone, Charmy can activate a flower and take them back to the beginning of the level. He also has acute hearing and is good at finding lost objects. Like other flight members in Sonic Heroes, Charmy can use Thunder Shoot, where he charges his friends with electricity and kicks them at enemies. Though he doesn't seem to excel at it, Charmy also plays drums during the "Chaotix Recital" Team Blast, although he could be heard repeating his name.
In Knuckles' Chaotix, Charmy makes his first game appearance. According to the Japanese manual, Charmy is out doing what bees do best when he arrives at an island and is captured by Doctor Eggman, who is currently taking over the island. When used as a playable character, Charmy can fly, and can as such do a dash in any direction instead of jumping. He can also start hover, which allows him and his partner to fall at a much slower and controlled rate.
In Sonic Heroes, Charmy is the "flight" member of Team Chaotix, which lets him lift the other two to higher areas, or kick them at enemies to do some damage.
In Shadow the Hedgehog, Charmy's most notable part of the game is on the "Prison Island" stage, where he is a partner character. When Shadow goes to the island, he finds Charmy, who explains that Vector sent him there to find five "top secret discs" that belongs to GUN. The player can choose whether or not to help him find these discs. Unlike most partner characters in the game, Charmy cannot be controlled by the second controller in the GameCube and PlayStation 2 versions, as he is constantly airborne. In the Last Story, Charmy inadvertently saves Earth when ramming his stinger into a computer aboard the Space Colony ARK while helping Espio and Vector hack in. By doing this, Charmy activates a videotape that allows Shadow to break free of Black Doom's mind control.
Charmy appears in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games, acting as a referee. He also makes a cameo in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a sticker.
In the Comics
In Sonic the Comic Charmy is scatter-brained, demented and generally infuriating, similar to his Sonic Heroes portrayal (though STC predates it). He is the prince of the bees from the Hive, but successfully kept this a secret to the rest of the Chaotix for most of the comic, worrying they might treat him differently. His mother, the Queen Bee, is not at all happy about him being a hero, while Charmy enjoys being a Chaotix member and is seemingly oblivious to how much he irritates everyone on the team. In both Chaotix solo strips, Charmy has defeated the villains and saved the day in extremely bizarre ways - turning the Fundamental Four into a big pot and doing a hostile takeover of the Crimson Cobra's business. He teamed up with Miles "Tails" Prower once and assisted him in finally defeating the Doctor Robotnik Appreciation Tribe.
In the Sonic the Hedgehog Archie comics, Charmy is a prince of bees in the Archie comics and keeps this a secret to the Chaotix, but when it gets out he is forced to resign from the group. The comic also features his only love interest, a female bee named Saffron. Both of them later join the Chaotix following the destruction of the Golden Hive Colony, the kingdom Charmy previously ruled. Together with the other Chaotix, he was taken prisoner during an attack on Knothole that resulted in the city's destruction. Fortunately, he and the others were rescued by Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose, and NICOLE. Charmy was briefly subjected to the effects of the Egg Grape Chamber before he was freed, though appeared to be stable according to a preliminary examination with the exception of an unknown amount of memory loss.
In the comics, Charmy's natural size is a little shorter than the average character, but he usually stays in "flight mode", his bee-sized form.
