The Hedgehog (originally called the Elf Hedgehog) was a pet added into Adopt Me! during the Christmas Event (2019). Elf Hedgehogs could be bought for Gingerbread 80,500; however, now that Elf Hedgehogs are not available to purchase, players can only obtain them through trading.

On April 11, 2020, Elf Hedgehogs were renamed Hedgehogs and the Elf Hat was added to the player's inventory, allowing players to trade the hat separately.

  • The Elf Hedgehog is one of the only pets that, in its Neon form, glows two different colors. Another pet like this is the Santa Dog, that turns into a mint color and its hat turns a brighter red.

  • Its tricks of Jump, which has it roll into a ball when jumping into the air, and Trick 2, which has it spinning into a ball in place for a while and then rolling off quickly, are references to the Spin Jump and Spin Dash moves from the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series.
