So we've got confirmation that Nephthys is a birdie. A vulture to be exact. And Trevor is blind, as per the mole stereotype (although in reality they're not).

Realfalconpawnch has the issue.

Well, there's no picture yet, so we can't go far for confirmation yet.

Actually, he's based off the golden mole, which is blind.

Ah, okay. It's kinda hard to make the link when he's not...well, golden.

Hedgehogs aren't blue, echidnas aren't red, yadda yadda. And calling him a "golden mole" when he's clearly purple would just be confusing.

It's odd that Sonar was a specific species of fox in the callout but that wasn't given to the character who actually needed that to explain one of his traits. :|

I don't think it matters since a lot of people think moles are blind. It's like a stereotype for moles. But if the comic wanted to emphasize Trevor is not just a regular mole but a golden mole, it may have been better for him to be gold.

Sonic and his friends are not based off a specific type of their species, so they don't have to worry about color. But for example if Vector was a different color it will be hard to tell if he was an alligator or a crocodile, so it's understandable SOME of them are in their normal color.
