rush into things without thinking
the wind, Sonic is unpredictable and never stays in one place for too long, much preferring to drift to various locations
with his speed. Sonic is carefree, easy-going, laidback and always looking for a new adventure. He loves nothing more than
to travel over the world and enjoy his precious freedom, which might explain why he appears to show no interest in dating.
His attitude is just as unpredictable as his love for adventuring - he's sassy, he's quick-witted, he's a little bit cocky and
always looks ahead of him, living without any regrets and enjoying life. Sonic tends to live by his own rules and not
live by the standards set by others around him. Despite his generally laidback nature, he gets easily riled up at an injustice,
oppression or the sadness of another person, which is when his heroic nature kicks in.
A hedgehog like no other, Sonic moves and thinks faster than lightning. Always on the look out for adventure, he never
stays in one place too long. Sonic always keeps a level head, even in the hottest of situations but if pushed to the edge,
he can change, surprising those closest to him with his intensity.
When he started out, he was mouthy, overconfident, and incredibly impatient, but as the series progressed, Sonic
developed into a more mature, yet quite temperamental teenage hero. Sonic is often viewed as a loner in this series, but he
values his friends highly.
Sonic the Hedgehog (SatAM)
He was raised by his Uncle Chuck until the day Robotnik took over, captured his Uncle Chuck and roboticized him. Then,
Sally's Nanny Rosie became a guardian for him and all the Freedom Fighters. He lives in the secret location of Knothole in
Forest and is the leader
of the Knothole Freedom Fighters. Sonic is impatient, reckless, egotistical and occasionally gets a temper on him but
he's a loyal and true friend to all. He is caring and kind-hearted and would do anything to help anyone, though maybe he needs
a little convincing if that person is Antoine, whom he rivals with over Princess Sally's affections. Sonic is a bit dimmer
in this series and shows his emotions quite a lot.
Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog
Known as the absolute hero through the entire cartoon, Sonic is one laid-back hedgehog that always finds himself getting
into trouble where ever he goes. Always willing to do the job, Sonic comes up with what seems endless plans and tricks to
play and the unsuspecting Grounder and Scratch, most of which involve dressing up, even as a girl on more than one occasion.
Alone and with his only true friend Tails, Sonic is constantly racing around Mobius stopping Robotnik from harming the innocent
and taking over Mobius. Sonic is constantly having fun while making Robotnik and his robots look like complete idiots in the
eyes of the citizens of Mobius, which only make Sonic more of a hero.
Sonic was left on the doorstep of an ordinary couple who raised him as their son until the day they were roboticized
when Sonic was approximately five years old. He ran off to live with his Uncle Chuck. He became a Freedom Fighter a year before
the Oracle of Delphius told him who he was and about his siblings so he has connections amongst the Resistance. Sonic is indeed
impatient, reckless and egotistical but he cares deeply about his brother and sister and would do anything to protect them
if they were in danger. The oldest triplet, Sonic plays the guitar in the band.
The fastest being on the planet, Sonic is a bit serious, which shows up in his attitude, but still knows how (and likes)
to relax. He's very confident in himself and makes sure he has some fun when he goes out to stop any plan by Eggman/Robotnik
to take over.
The most famous hero on Mobius, Sonic is best known for his defeat of Robotnik Prime and his heroic actions preventing
the Xorda from destroying Mobius and its solar system. Raised in Mobotropolis before Robotnik Prime's coup, Sonic was an average
child except for his abnormal speed. Sonic lost his parents to the roboticizer and was taken in by his Uncle Chuck until he
too was roboticized. During Robotnik Prime's coup Sonic and a few others were herded to Knothole Villiage by the Original
Freedom fighters. It was from them that Sonic got the inspiration that would one day make him a hero. As Sonic developed his
incredible speed, his attitude became legendary. Irreverent, confident, impatient and energetic, Sonic fought constantly to
overthrow Robotnik Prime and continues the fight against his successor, Robotnik Mk II. Sonic finds himself as the object
of affection for most of the women in this comic, currently Fiona Fox.
Sonic hates to stand still and will not rest until Dr Robotnik is defeated and Mobius is free. He is always keen to
right wrongs and sticks by his friends – even when he grows impatient with them. He is undoubtedly the fastest creature
in the universe, but he is also cheeky and irreverent. Some say that the Fleetway Sonic is rude and offensive, which is completely
true. Sonic likes to assert himself as leader of the freedom fighters, but despite his attitude deep down he cares about his
friends, no matter how rude he seems. Sonic leads the freedom fighters, but his hasty decision making often leads him into
trouble which is why he really needs his friends around him. When he is really stressed or around Chaos Energy he can transform
into Super Sonic for a short time, but he’s unable to control or remember his actions whilst in this state. Serious
ego problems mask what is otherwise a fairly likable character who always does what he can to help. He doesn’t have
much respect for anyone or anything, he likes to be right and loves to take the opportunity to prove himself. Sonic’s
dedicated to the protection of Mobius no matter what, hard headed and determined if a little rude he’s here to stay…
Opinions on Sonic the Hedgehog
Swift says: "Now first off, I’d like to make it known that Sonic is my favourite character in the whole
Sonic series and to me, there is no other character like him. So naturally I do find it bugs me when people hate/dislike him,
because I don’t see how anyone can hate him, though I suppose they have their reasons. To state my point a little more
clearly, Sonic was the guy who started the series. Without Sonic becoming such a success, there would be no Cream, no Amy,
no Shadow, and no Knuckles. A lot of people don’t appreciate what Sonic has done for the series. Without Sonic, the
characters that people like instead of him would probably not exist now. If Sonic’s first game had not been such a success,
the only other character in the Sonic series would have been Robotnik. From what I’ve seen, a lot of people who hate
Sonic are Shadow/Amy extremists that go by fanfiction where Sonic is OOCed into an abusive toerag who yells at Amy, gets overly
obsessed with her when she starts liking someone else, and ends up committing suicide. Then there are a few people that hate
Sonic because they think Shadow is better (like my younger brother). Now as a character, Sonic’s got a lot of spunk, and definitely is a character I find hard to hate. He’s
cool; it’s hard to deny that. Plus there’s the fact that I can relate to him a lot. Sonic bottles his emotions
up, and that’s something I tend to do a lot as well. Whenever things seem to be going bad for him, he slaps on that
cocky smile and he doesn’t whine about how bad things are. He gets on with it. He finds ways around it. That makes him
admirable to me. Sonic is a free spirit, much like me in
some sense. He hates being held down by responsibilities, so I can relate to him there. Plus I would love to have speed like
Sonic. He has a rare gift, and he uses it to help others. It isn’t his duty to be the hero; he chooses to be the hero.
He chooses to put his life in danger to help others. He could always turn around and walk away, let Eggman take over the world,
but he doesn’t. The fact that he chooses to help
others and put his life in danger on a regular basis doesn’t make him selfish in any way at all. Sure, there are times
when he acts selfish, but everyone has a bit of selfishness in them. It’s called your ‘id’ and Sonic is
as entitled to one as much as everyone else is. If he doesn’t want to do something, he doesn’t have to. If he doesn't want to go out with Amy at the moment, he doesn't have to. It's the same as saying if you don't want
to do something, you don't have to. So yeah... I can relate to Sonic quite a lot and I do like him a lot as a character. I
hope he continues to thrive for many years to come."
Flash says: "He's been my fave from the start, despite the fact he can be a bit lairy he's a cool character."
Sweet Freak says: "Best. Male. Ever. And a total hottie."
Flyboy Fox says: "Oh goodness, he's just my most favourite character of all time. I have so much respect for him because he manages
to pull off being witty, egotistical, cocky and smooth, without being annoying or sickening. I love the fact that even though
he's vain, he's not selfish. He risks his life all the time to protect not only his friends, but also all of the people he
doesn't even know. He doesn't HAVE to. Just because he has the incredible gift of super speed doesn't mean he has to put his
life on the line with it to defend the world. Also, he doesn't let his big ego stop him from acknowledging the contributions
his friends make, and he's very supportive of them. I have to say that personally I think Sonic X made him more of a loner
and more angsty than the games have ever showed him to be (and also, I grew to know him via AoStH and SatAM), plus games manuals
started to add that whole speil about him having a temper... which to me has never been evident - one of his defining traits
is his laid-back nature. But my gripes with Sonic X are an entirely different matter. I love Sonic. And I also have quite
a large crush on him. Yep. He's sexy. There's just something about him that captivates me."
Custard says: "What to
say about the one we call the blue blur? Well, in case you can't tell (from my avatar and sig) I'm a huge Sonic fan. The guy
is just so awesome. I never used to like him that much though, his cockiness somewhat annoyed me. Nowadays, he's up the top
of my favourites list. Why? There's a few things I really respect about this guy. One main thing I love about him is he's
able to keep his cool and not blow his top off (so to speak) when danger hits him in the face. I've always wished I could
do that. Sonic's creation is also responsible for all the other characters. Yes, even Shadow wouldn't have been created if
it weren't for the blue blur. Seems weird, doesn't it? Take Sonic outta the Sonic games and you might start to go "WTF?".
I know I would..."
