Silver the Hedgehog is a recurring character in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise and a psychokinetic hedgehog from the future. In his appearances, Silver is one of the two deuteragonists (Shadow the Hedgehog) of Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Sonic Rivals and its sequel, a supporting character of Sonic and the Secret Rings, Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, Sonic and the Black Knight, Sonic Free Riders, Sonic Colors, Sonic Generations and Sonic Runners, and a major character of Sonic Forces. He is a 14-year old hedgehog who came from 200 years in the future. He is Espio's and Blaze's best friend.

His main role in the games is to protect the future by changing the problems in the past with the help from his psychokinesis, which are psychic powers. He apparently has the ability to time-travel, though this is implied to be done with the assistance of future technology.

Silver is a kindhearted and well-meaning individual, driven by a strong sense of justice to right the wrongs of the past to uphold peace, though he is somewhat naive and immature. Despite the monumental tasks he may have on hand, he is an optimist and will do whatever is required to protect the world.

In the Japanese version, he is voiced by Daisuke Ono, who also voices Shunsuke Otosaka from Charlotte and Jotaro Kujo from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. In English, he was voiced by Pete Capella between 2006 and 2010, Quinton Flynn between 2010 and 2017 (who also voiced Raiden from Metal Gear and Iruka from Naruto), and is currently voiced by Bryce Papenbrook since 2019, also the voice of Cat Noir from Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir and Makoto Naegi in the Danganronpa series. In Sonic 2006, his singing voice was heard in his story's ending song "Dreams of an Absolution" by Bentley Jones (credited as Lee Brotherton).

Appearance

Silver, per his name, is a hedgehog with silver or gray fur, white fur as a collar around his neck, his hands sport gloves with gold-banded wrists with blue, glowing lines that help focus his psychokinetic powers when using them to fly, attack, or defend. His boots are aqua blue on the toes, black on the side, and white on the middle with red tongues with gold-banded ankles that also sport the blue, glowing lines for focusing his psychokinesis. He also sports yellow eyes.

Personality

Silver is a polite hedgehog with a strong sense of justice, who can be very serious changing his future or when the future is at stake with relentless determination. Silver opposes those who make others suffer, and will try to help out in any way he can. Silver does care about his friends, like when Blaze offered to sacrificed herself to seal Iblis away, Silver instead, wanted a favorable alternative to defeat the monster for good.

Silver is shown to be naive (which has been elaborated on by Blaze several times,) he can be too trusting, to the point that he never contemplated on the fact that he could be lied to by Mephiles (who tricks Silver into believing Sonic is the Iblis Trigger.)

He does have a nasty side to him at times, like when someone gets in his way, or when someone's not being very helpful. Silver has shown to be very rude and short-tempered at times, as seen in Sonic Rivals and its sequel. He does have a apologetic side to him, such as in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) by saving and teaming up with Sonic where they were trying to save Elise, despite their initial encounter, but Silver reconciles with Sonic by telling him that it was a misunderstanding and asks Sonic if he could help save Elise, and after Sonic forgives Silver, the two hedgehogs worked together.

Silver possesses a competitive side to him and is rather cocky, often giving a smug look when he's in the lead. It's moreso seen in the latter two Sonic Riders games. In Sonic (2006) he gives a snide remark when fighting enemies.

All in all he's a very friendly and likable person, whenever he's not busy trying to save his future.

Biography

Past

Silver was born in Crisis City (technically Soleanna) 200 years in the future, he did state that the future was like this before he was born. It's totally unknown about who Silver's family were, except for the fact that he was friends with Blaze the Cat for an unknown period of time. Silver has been constantly fighting a monster named Iblis and it's minions, who is responsible for the catastrophic future he's been living in, turning it into a literal Hell on Earth with fire and bubbling hot lava everywhere.

Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

Silver lived in an apocalyptic future 200 years after the present, a result of the destruction wrought on the world by Iblis, the Flames of Disaster. Every time Silver confronted the beast and defeated it, it would always return, ready for another confrontation, like a phoenix rising from its ashes due to the eternal flames that feed Iblis its power. It was after one of these confrontations that Silver, along with Blaze the Cat, met Mephiles the Dark, currently taking an appearance similar to Shadow the Hedgehog.

Taking them to a still-working computer room despite all the destruction and carnage around them, Mephiles reveals that to stop Iblis from destroying Silver's future, Silver needed to eliminate the one responsible for Iblis' release in the past, the aptly-dubbed "Iblis Trigger". Through the purple Chaos Emerald, Silver sees a vision of Sonic the Hedgehog surrounded by flames, believing him to be the Iblis Trigger. With that knowledge, Silver is transported back to Soleanna in the present time by Mephiles, but is separated from Blaze in the process.

During this time, Silver runs into Amy Rose, who offers to help him find Sonic after she initially mistook Silver for Sonic, as is her habit. However, when they find Sonic, along with the Soleanna sovereign, Princess Elise III, Silver, remembering the vision Mephiles showed him, attacks Sonic. However, before he can finish Sonic off as Sonic tried to go after Elise, who had been kidnapped by Doctor Eggman in the confusion, Amy blocks Silver from doing so, refusing to let him through, allowing Sonic a chance to escape to follow Elise. When Silver explains to Amy that Sonic is the one who destroys the world in his future, Amy refuses to believe Sonic would do something so evil and leaves Silver to go after Sonic herself.

Later on, Silver encounters Sonic again after he saved Elise once more from Eggman's train. Again, Silver decrees that Sonic must die and attacks, this time immobilizing Sonic in a psycho-kinetic shield, allowing Eggman to kidnap Elise again. Before Silver can finish off Sonic this time, Shadow appears, whom Silver first mistakes for Mephiles, allowing Sonic to escape once more to pursue Eggman.

Silver and his psycho-kinetic powers are no match for Shadow and his Chaos Control, but when both hedgehogs attempt to use Chaos Control when they each have a Chaos Emerald, this results in opening a time portal to ten years ago, allowing both hedgehogs to bear witness to Iblis and Mephiles' origins when the Solaris Project went catastrophically wrong, severely injuring a young Elise, and mortally wounding her father, the Duke of Soleanna. While Shadow went after Mephiles to contain him in the Scepter of Darkness, Silver watches as the dying Duke seals Iblis into Elise, with the warning that she can never cry, or Iblis will be freed. Realizing that Mephiles had lied to him and Sonic was not the Iblis Trigger as he was made to believe, Silver leaves Elise under a tree with the blue Chaos Emerald before returning to the present with Shadow.

With new knowledge of how his future will happen if he can't stop it, Silver rejoins Blaze, and they soon regroup with Sonic, explaining to him that circumstances have changed and Silver no longer has any intent to kill Sonic like he previously intended, only to arrive too late as Eggman's battleship disappears behind a distant mountain, crashes, and explodes, killing both Elise and Eggman, leaving Sonic devastated. However, Silver, realizing they can return to the past and prevent Elise's death, works with Sonic to open a time portal using Chaos Control with the two Chaos Emeralds they possess. Before he jumps in, Sonic leaves his Chaos Emerald with Silver.

With two Chaos Emeralds in their possession, Silver and Blaze return to their future to confront Iblis again. After they defeat him, Silver attempts to re-seal Iblis inside himself, but it won't work. Blaze ends up being the one to re-seal Iblis inside herself, before banishing herself to another dimension so Iblis won't be a threat anymore. With Blaze's sacrifice, Silver's future looks to be on its way to a better life.

However, back in the present, Mephiles is not done yet. Blinding Elise and Sonic with the purple Chaos Emerald while they are heading back to Soleanna Castle Town from the forest, Mephiles murders Sonic by running him through from behind with an energy spear, leaving Elise so devastated that she breaks the seal on Iblis, freeing the Flames of Disaster, who Mephiles reunites with via the Chaos Emeralds to become Solaris once more, intending to destroy the very fabric of the space-time continuum. Silver ends up in the same place as Eggman and Sonic's friends, and discovers Sonic's fate.

However, when Elise realizes Sonic can still be revived with the Chaos Emeralds, Silver joins Sonic's friends with locating them in the various stages that are succumbing to Solaris' master plan, and with the Emeralds collected, Sonic is revived and transformed into Super Sonic. Super Sonic passes his power onto Silver and Shadow, allowing them to assume their super forms as well, and the three hedgehogs take off to face Solaris.

They prove to be victorious as they destroy Solaris' consciousness, essentially destroying Mephiles as well, and Solaris' demise sends Sonic and Elise back to when Solaris was still a small flame as part of the Solaris Project, which Elise then blows out, preventing the events of the whole game from ever taking place as the timeline is altered dramatically.

Finding his future facing another apocalyptic fate after erasing what happened previously with Solaris, Silver travels back to the present day Angel Island to speak with Knuckles the Echidna, only to find themselves facing an illusion of Angel Island in the past, along with an aggressive Chaos. After they defeat it, the illusion dissipates, but it leaves Knuckles and Silver realizing something must be terribly wrong.

Silver's fears are confirmed when Eggman unleashes his latest plot for world domination and the Eggman Empire through his new secret weapons, Infinite and the Phantom Ruby, and manages to defeat Sonic and take him prisoner aboard the rebuilt Death Egg when Sonic arrives to save Tails and several civilians from Eggman and his Egg Pawns in the City before being confronted by Infinite and his replicas of villains Sonic fought in the past. Following this, the world believes Sonic was killed in action against Infinite. Without Sonic, the world capitulates to the Eggman Empire, and within six months, over 99% of the planet is under Eggman's tyrannical iron fist thanks to Infinite. Silver joins the Resistance, a group of Sonic's friends led by Knuckles, which includes Amy Rose, Vector the Crocodile, Espio the Chameleon, and Charmy Bee, as they try to fight back, to little success, causing the population to lose hope and give into despair, until help arrives in the form of the Avatar, a rookie Resistance member who had been the lone survivor of an attack on their team by Infinite about two months earlier in the City, whom Infinite let escape in order to demoralize and instill fear in them.

Word soon comes from the Resistance's spy, Rouge the Bat, that Sonic is still alive on the Death Egg. Infiltrating the Chemical Plant to steal an Eggman Fleet ship from the Spaceport there, Silver joins Vector while Espio and his troops distract Infinite and commandeer the ship. On the Death Egg, they soon reach the Prison Hall and find many of the cells were recently occupied, indicating they were containing fellow Resistance members and civilians who Eggman captured and possibly executed, much to Silver's fury. With the Avatar's help, the Resistance is able to break Sonic out of the Death Egg and get him safely home, giving the Resistance renewed hope in the War to Take Back the Planet. When word comes that Eggman has the Arsenal Pyramid, his main munitions factory, located in Green Hill, Silver realizes that they can't launch an attack against Eggman's capital of Metropolis while the Arsenal Pyramid was still operational. Sonic and the Avatar are assigned the duty of taking out the Arsenal Pyramid while Silver is deployed to command the Resistance forces in Mystic Jungle, only to report in later that he's been engaged by Infinite, alerting Sonic to having a chance to get some revenge for his earlier defeat by Infinite's hands. Silver later confronts Infinite outside Eggman's Mystic Jungle lab where he had done his research into the Phantom Ruby as the Eggman Fleet are firebombing the Luminous Forest to take out the Resistance forces deployed there, but as Silver fights him, he manages to have Infinite drop one of the Phantom Ruby prototypes he had retrieved to dispose of so they would not pose a threat to Eggman's plans in the future, which is found later by the Avatar, before being overpowered, but saved by Sonic before Infinite could deliver the killing blow. However, after the battle with Infinite in Mystic Jungle, neither Silver or Sonic were able to support the Resistance until they recovered from their injuries dealt to them by Infinite earlier. This resulted in Silver becoming frustrated upon seeing the City being besieged by Death Egg Robot Sentinels as the Avatar is sent in to help evacuate civilians still trapped behind enemy lines until the Eggman Army is forced into retreat thanks to the Avatar's efforts.

Upon Tails reuniting with Sonic and the Resistance after meeting up with the Avatar in Casino Forest and Aqua Road, along with bringing Classic Sonic the Hedgehog with him, Silver later finds himself struggling alongside the Chaotix dealing with a veritable army of Death Egg Robot Sentinels assaulting the City with whom they believe to be Shadow, only for the real Ultimate Life Form to appear to take out his doppelganger before he could attack Sonic and reveal the existence of the Replicas to the Resistance. While that is happening, Silver joins an attempt to take out Eggman's capital of Metropolis, but the assault fails when Infinite uses the Phantom Ruby on the Resistance's forces, taking out 80% of them, forcing them to retreat. It is then that Tails decides they need to take out the Death Egg, as it was providing power to Infinite's Phantom Ruby. To do this, they first need to distract Eggman's forces, and Silver suggests sending the Avatar to distract the Eggman Army at Guardian Rock in Green Hill so Sonic can infiltrate the Network Terminal at the Chemical Plant, thus allowing Classic Sonic to infiltrate and destroy the Death Egg. Knuckles agrees to Silver's suggestion and sends the Avatar to deal with Eggman's Death Crab in Guardian Rock. The plan works, resulting in liberating Green Hill, and Sonic and Classic Sonic are able to complete their parts of the plan to destroy the Death Egg, recapturing the Chemical Plant and ensuring the Death Egg's demise in the process, thus liberating outer space from Eggman's influence with the loss of his battle station.

Though the Death Egg is destroyed, a second attempt on Metropolis nearly fails when Eggman and Infinite banish Sonic and the Avatar to Null Space, revealing that Eggman had built a backup reactor for the Phantom Ruby under the Eggman Empire Fortress. However, Sonic and the Avatar escape Null Space, and Metropolis falls to the Resistance, as Eggman, shocked to see Sonic and the Avatar escaped Null Space, retreats with Infinite, Orbot, and Cubot, to his final stronghold at the Eggman Empire Fortress.

Silver joins Sonic and all his friends as they lead the Resistance ground forces in their final fight against the Eggman Army at the Eggman Empire Fortress, using his psychokinesis to immobilize several Replicas for the Chaotix, Amy, and Rouge to take out personally as they lead the charge with closing in on the Imperial Tower. Upon the arrival of E-123 Omega, looking for payback for when Infinite attacked him previously, Infinite has had enough, and launches Eggman's endgame by using his Phantom Ruby prototype to create a virtual sun in the sky, with the intent of bringing it down and reducing the Resistance to nothing but ashes, leaving Eggman victorious and clear to build the Eggman Empire on the ruins. However, the plan fails when the Avatar uses the Phantom Ruby prototype they retrieved in Mystic Jungle that Silver caused Infinite to drop previously to cancel out the sun, much to Eggman's total disbelief and shock that his endgame had been miraculously stopped. Infinite is soon after defeated by Sonic and the Avatar, who then take out the Phantom Ruby reactor at the heart of the Eggman Empire Fortress in Final Judgement, only for Eggman to unleash his final trump card against them: The Death Egg Robot powered by the original Phantom Ruby itself, as the reactor was merely a decoy to where he had hidden the real Phantom Ruby.

However, a joint effort by Sonic, Classic Sonic, and the Avatar sees the Death Egg Robot and, potentially, the original Phantom Ruby destroyed, wiping out the Eggman Army's entire regiments of Replicas of Shadow, Metal Sonic, Chaos, and Zavok, leaving the Resistance the ultimate victors of the War to Take Back the Planet. With the Phantom Ruby's apparent destruction, Classic Sonic is returned to his own dimension, and the Resistance is disbanded sometime later by Knuckles as Sonic's friends focus on the task ahead of rebuilding and restoring the world following the war, with Silver having accomplished his original reason for returning to the past as he helped save his future from Eggman and Infinite's tyranny.

Pre-Super Genesis Wave

Silver comes from his devastated future to explain that it was caused by one of the Freedom Fighters having apparently turned traitor. When he believes Sally to be responsible after learning of her Roboticization into Mecha Sally, he initially causes Sonic and Amy to become furious with him over his intent to stop her to prevent his future from being destroyed, however, learning that Sally is doing so against her will as Mecha Sally, Silver reconsiders his choice and tries to help, managing to sneak up on her as she was about to kill Sonic and Amy and incapacitates her. Unfortunately, before he, Sonic, Amy, or any of the Freedom Fighters can finally take Sally back to possibly be de-Roboticized, they are caught up in the second Genesis Wave triggered by Eggman and Doctor Wily to rewrite their realities to their liking using the Super Genesis Wave.

Silver ends up being Roboticized and turned into a Robot Master himself, dubbed "Silver Man", but is later returned to flesh and blood by Sonic and Mega Man. Unfortunately, Eggman and Wily launch the Super Genesis Wave, and when Super Sonic and Mega Man in his own Super form try to reverse the effects via Chaos Control, while Mega Man succeeds in saving his world and returning it to normal, a spiteful Eggman interrupts Super Sonic, disrupting the effects of Chaos Control and the Super Genesis Wave, creating an irreversible new timeline for the Prime Zone as the multiverse collapses and reboots from the damage, causing the world everyone remembers to be lost forever due to the permanent change to the timeline.

IDW

Silver made his IDW debut in the comic's eighth issue, and has been a recurring character since. Here, his role is similar to his game counterpart's, but he is much friendlier. This incarnation of Silver is also a big fan of Whisper the Wolf, who saved his life during the war between the Resistance and Dr. Eggman.

Relationships​​

Blaze the Cat

Silver and Blaze are best friends.

Shadow the Hedgehog

Shadow is Silver's rival and friend.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Silver and Sonic met during the events of Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). The two were enemies at first because Silver had traveled through and was intending to kill Sonic believing that he was responsible for destroying his world by releasing the Iblis Trigger into the world and was bent on saving the future. But Silver befriended Sonic when he discovered that Sonic was not the Iblis Trigger and that Mephiles the Dark had lied to him. The two worked together to save Princess Elise and when Sonic was killed by Mephiles, Silver realized that they could revive Sonic with the power of the Chaos Emeralds. Afterwards Silver teamed up with Sonic and Shadow to defeat Mephiles. But since the events of the game were erased from history, Sonic and Silver never met. They don't actually meet until Sonic Rivals, where Silver has traveled to the past to bring Eggman Nega back to the future, but Silver seems to be more competitive to Sonic as they raced each other to see who would get to Eggman Nega first but later they teamed up with each other at the end to defeat Eggman Nega and also in Sonic Rivals 2 to defeat the Ifrit. It appears that Sonic and Silver don't remember each other from their past adventure since the events of Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) were erased.

Silver seems to have a bit of a disliking towards Sonic mostly because he thinks that he is immature and irresponsible, similiar to Sonic and Knuckles' rivalry. Silver's atitude tends to annoy Sonic at times as well as seen in Sonic Rivals, when he says: "Yo, Silver, you've got an attitude.". But they will work together and lay aside their differences whenever the time is right. An example is in Sonic Colors after Silver challenges Sonic to a mission, he asks if he needs any help. In Sonic Generations, Silver is the only rival who wants a friendly fight. He also appeared at the Center of Time after Sonic was knocked out by the Time Eater, Silver says to Sonic: "I know you can do this, Sonic". He also joins the Resistance in Sonic Forces to take down the Eggman Empire after it conquered 99% of the world, believing that Sonic was killed by Infinite until word came Sonic was still alive and incarcerated on the Death Egg. Once Sonic was freed and rejoined his friends, Silver is part of the final battle at the Eggman Empire Fortress, where the Resistance emerges triumphant and begins the long process of rebuilding the world following the War to Take Back the Planet.

Amy Rose

Amy is good friends with Silver.

Espio the Chameleon

The two first met each other in Sonic Rivals 2. Before they met, Espio was given an assignment by Vector the Crocodile to find out evidence that Silver was behind the kidnapping of several Chao. As such, Silver was a subject of doubt for Espio as he didn't seem like a bad guy despite his actions. At first, Espio treated Silver like an enemy, but as he learned that Silver was working to save the world, he decided to follow his instincts and help him with his mission. During their adventure, the two have build a good relationship as Espio proved his trustworthiness and helped Silver on many occasions. After finishing their mission, the two became best friends and developed a brother-like relationship, and Silver frequently travels to past to visit his best friend Espio, along with his other friends.

Iblis Trigger

The Iblis Trigger caused the destruction of Silver's world, making the people hopeless. Silver tried constantly to stop Iblis, but failed constantly. However, after the events of Sonic 2006 were erased, that never happened, and Silver now lives in a happy world.

Mephiles the Dark

Mephiles tricked Silver into thinking Sonic is the Iblis Trigger, but he later realized the truth, and stopped believing on him.

Miles "Tails" Prower

Tails and Silver are rivals and friends.

Eggman Nega

Eggman Nega is Silver's arch-enemy.

Knuckles the Echidna

Silver and Knuckles have a small rivalry with each other. Normally, they don't pay much attention to each other, though they had heated battles with one another occasionally.

Rouge the Bat

Silver and Rouge have a small rivalry with each other. Normally, they don't pay much attention to each other, though they had heated battles with one another occasionally.

Infinite

Because of the initial belief that Infinite killed Sonic, Silver harbors a deep grudge against Infinite. When Silver confronts him in Mystic Jungle, after Infinite intends to kill Silver to further distill fear and despair in the Resistance, Silver attempts to fight back, unknowingly causing Infinite to drop one of the Phantom Ruby prototypes he was going to destroy, thereby ensuring the Resistance's ultimate victory in the war, and saving his own future in the process. Though he is overpowered, Sonic rescues him from Infinite's final strike, but both hedgehogs have to recover, and Silver mainly remains with the Resistance at their HQ until the final assault on the Eggman Empire Fortress to take out Infinite and the Phantom Ruby once and for all.

Trivia

  • Silver the Hedgehog is a Meta-Animal, (also known as a Super-animal or a Super-powered Animal).
  • At first it seems that Silver can levitate while bathed in his Psychic powers, but in recent games, he can levitate without it.
  • Unlike Shadow and Metal Sonic (who both have a score to settle) from Sonic Generations, Silver is the only rival boss to fight against Sonic just for the fun of it.
  • The speed chip upgrade for Silver was not included in the final version of the game, which was designed to make Silver run faster, though the decription appeared on the Sonic (2006) game guide.
  • Silver is perhaps the most frustrating bosses to fight in Sonic '06 (or even in the whole series,) mainly because his psychokinesis easily grabs Sonic/Shadow, replying "IT'S NO USE....TAKE THIS," which is very annoying. He usually throws players towards the corner, which he later follows or stands in front of the player at the corner (especially if the player doesn't recover in time, much to their bad luck) and kills them after saying his second line "IT'S NO USE....THIS WILL END IT" when the player has no rings. Though Sonic Generations designed the fight to be extremely favorable.
    • To defeat Silver in '06, the player must evade Silver and wait for him to say “How about this?!” then slide through him while he is holding objects. It’s possible to beat Silver without him catching them even once.

List of Sonic the Hedgehog characters

Wikipedia list article

A variety of Soniccharacters gathered. Clockwise from top: Doctor Eggman, Rouge the Bat, Shadow the Hedgehog, Knuckles the Echidna, Sonic the Hedgehog, Amy Rose, Miles "Tails" Prower, Cream the Rabbit, a Chao, and Blaze the Cat. Art by Yuji Uekawa.

The Sonic the Hedgehogvideo game franchise began in 1991 with the game Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Genesis, which pitted a blue anthropomorphic hedgehog named Sonic against a rotund male human villain named Doctor Eggman (or Doctor Ivo Robotnik). The sequel, Sonic 2, gave Sonic a fox friend named Tails. Sonic CD introduced Amy Rose, a female hedgehog with a persistent crush on Sonic. Sonic 3 introduced Knuckles the Echidna, Sonic's rival and, later, friend. All five of these have remained major characters and appeared in dozens of games.

The series has introduced dozens of additional recurring characters over the years. These have ranged from anthropomorphic animal characters like Shadow the Hedgehog and Cream the Rabbit to robots created by Eggman like Metal Sonic and E-123 Omega, as well as human characters like Eggman's grandfather Gerald Robotnik. The series features two fictional species: Chao, which have usually functioned as digital pets and minor gameplay and plot elements, Wisps, which have been used as power-ups.

The Sonic games keep a separate continuity from the Sonic the Hedgehog comics published by Archie Comics and other Sonic media and, as a result, feature a distinct yet overlapping array of many characters.

Characters

Sonic the Hedgehog

Main article: Sonic the Hedgehog (character)

Sonic the Hedgehog,[a] trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog,[1] is a blue anthropomorphic hedgehog and the main protagonist of the series. Developed as a replacement for their existing Alex Kidd mascot, as well as Sega's response to Mario, his first appearance was in the arcade game Rad Mobile as a cameo, before making his official debut in Sonic the Hedgehog (1991). Sonic's greatest ability is his running speed, and he is known as the world's fastest hedgehog.[2] Using the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds, he becomes Super Sonic and can achieve even greater speeds.

Doctor Eggman

Main article: Doctor Eggman

Doctor Ivo Robotnik,[b][3] better known by his alias Doctor Eggman,[c][4] is a human mad scientist and the main antagonist of the series. Debuting in the first game of the series, Sonic the Hedgehog, he was shown attempting to collect the Chaos Emeralds and turn all of the animals inhabiting the land into robots. He is a self-proclaimed or certifiable genius with an IQ of 300.[5][6][7] His fondness for mechas has made him a renowned authority on robotics. Ultimately, Eggman's goal is to conquer the world and create his ultimate utopia, Eggmanland, alternatively known as the Eggman Empire and Robotnikland.[8]

When Sega had petitioned its research and development department to create a character who would replace Alex Kidd as its company mascot, a caricature of U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt was among the proposed designs. It lost to Sonic the Hedgehog, but the design was kept for the basis for Dr. Eggman instead.[9][10]

Miles "Tails" Prower

Main article: Tails (Sonic the Hedgehog)

Miles Prower,[d] better known by his nickname Tails,[e] is a two-tailed fox who is Sonic's best friend and sidekick. His name is a pun on "miles per hour". He is able to use his two tails to propel himself into the air like a helicopter for a limited time. Yasushi Yamaguchi, originally the main artist and zone designer for Sega's Sonic Team, designed Tails for an internal competition for a sidekick to Sonic. His first appearance was in Sonic 2 for the Game Gear, where he was kidnapped by Doctor Robotnik for a "hefty" ransom, and was first made playable in the Genesis version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2.[11] Tails has appeared in almost every Sonic game since his first appearance. Tails starred in two solo spinoff games for the Sega Game Gear in 1995 - Tails' Skypatrol, and Tails Adventure.[12] Frequently portrayed as a sweet-natured[13] and humble fox,[14] Tails used to be picked on because of his twin tails, before he met Sonic.[15] Tails has a very high IQ and excellent mechanical ability.

Amy Rose

Amy Rose[f] is a pink hedgehog and Sonic's self-proclaimed girlfriend.[16] Amy was created by Kazuyuki Hoshino for Sonic the Hedgehog CD (1993),[17] although she appeared Kenji Terada's Sonic the Hedgehog manga a year before.[18] Hoshino created her in-game graphics, with many staff members contributing ideas to her design. Her headband and trainer shoes reflected Sonic CD director Naoto Ohshima's tastes, and her mannerisms reflected the traits Hoshino looked for in women at the time.[17] Her fur color was red at first, and her skirt orange.[19] The character had two other names in game previews: Rosy the Rascal[20] and Princess Sally (a character in the Sonic the Hedgehog TV series and comics).[19][21] Amy received her present design, with a red dress and boots, in Sonic Adventure (1998),[22] courtesy of designer Yuji Uekawa.[23]

In the games, Amy is depicted as driven and competitive. She spends much of her time following Sonic to get his attention or make sure he is safe while demonstrating her affection.[16] Series co-creator Yuji Naka said that Amy was designed "to always chase Sonic", and has made it her life goal to one day marry him.[24] Not possessing the speed or strength of the other characters, Amy uses a hammer to defend herself instead.[16][25] In Sonic CD, Metal Sonic kidnaps Amy and Sonic must rescue her. When he does, Amy kisses him.[21] Amy's first appearance in a Sonic platformer as a playable character was in Sonic Adventure;[22][26] she is playable in Sonic Heroes (2003)[27] and Sonic the Hedgehog (2006),[28] and appears as a non-player character in games such as Sonic Unleashed (2008).[29]

While some journalists have called Amy cute and powerful,[22][30] others find her annoying.[31][32][33][34] Justin Towell of GamesRadar+ and writers from Mean Machines expressed general displeasure at her introduction in Sonic CD.[34][35] Additionally, some have criticized developers' treatment of Amy as a female character and analyzed her implications on gender representation in video games. The Electronic Gaming Monthly staff found her pink coloring and tendency to run from danger to be stereotypical and common in Japanese-created female characters,[36] while feminist blogger Anita Sarkeesian cites Amy as an example of the "Ms. Male Character" trope, in which female characters in games with male protagonists often resemble those protagonists, but with stereotypically feminine features added.[37] Despite this, Amy is one of the series' most popular characters, coming in fifth place in a Japanese popularity poll in 2006.[38] Her likeness has been used in Sonic merchandise,[39] and she appears in the television adaptations Sonic X (2003–2006) and Sonic Boom (2014–2017).[31][40]

Metal Sonic

Metal Sonic[g] is an evil robotic version of Sonic created by Dr. Robotnik. He first appears in Sonic the Hedgehog CD. He is given orders to go back in time and change the past so that Dr. Eggman can rule the future. Sonic must race him in Stardust Speedway to free Amy Rose. He is severely wounded when he crashes and falls, but is rejuvenated by Robotnik in Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II, only to be defeated again in a similar style. He returns in Knuckles' Chaotix, where he attempts to obtain the Chaos Rings, but he is stopped by the Chaotix. Metal Sonic notably acted as the main antagonist in Sonic Heroes, appearing in a new form as Neo Metal Sonic before transforming into the game's final boss, the Metal Overlord. Upon being defeated by Super Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles, he reverts to his traditional appearance. He appears as the main antagonist in the Sonic the Hedgehog (OVA), where Eggman records Sonic's abilities and uploads them to Metal Sonic, who proceeds in attempting to destroy the world before being tossed into lava by Sonic. Metal Sonic appears as a bonus playable character in Sonic Rivals, reprogrammed to aid Eggman Nega in his attempt to take over the world. He returns as a playable character in Sonic Rivals 2, under orders from Eggman to aid Shadow in stopping Eggman Nega's plans. In Sonic Free Riders, Metal Sonic is a playable character and the final opponent in the game's story mode. In Sonic Generations, he appears in his classic form as a rival boss, battling Classic Sonic in Stardust Speedway before ultimately being destroyed. Metal Sonic returns as a boss character in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal. He appears in the Sonic Boom episode, "It Wasn't Me, It Was the One-Armed Hedgehog". Metal Sonic appears as a boss in the Sonic story mode of Lego Dimensions.

Metal Sonic appeared as a playable character in the multiplayer mode of Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, as well as Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, and all the Mario & Sonic titles beginning with Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. Collecting all the emblems in Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut unlocks Metal Sonic as a bonus playable character in Sonic's stages, and purchasing both episodes of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 unlocks bonus levels in which Metal Sonic is playable.

He possesses great strength, including a laser cannon, a jet engine and a force field device he can use to protect himself from projectiles and certain attacks. He usually only communicates with a series of electronic noises. The only notable time Metal Sonic was able to talk was in Sonic Heroes in which he was voiced by Jun'ichi Kanemaru in Japanese and Ryan Drummond in English.

GameDaily placed Metal Sonic 13th on their "Top 25 Video Game Robots" list, describing him as Dr. Robotnik's "greatest creation" and praising the strength of his abilities.[41]

Knuckles the Echidna

Main article: Knuckles the Echidna

Knuckles the Echidna[h] is a red echidna and Sonic's friendly rival. First introduced in the Genesis game Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Knuckles lives on Angel Island, which hovers in the sky due to the power of the Master Emerald. As the last surviving member of the Echidna people who once inhabited the island, his duty is to guard the Master Emerald.

During conception of Sonic the Hedgehog 3, the development team wanted to create a new rival for Sonic. The final design of Knuckles was the result of dozens of possible designs inspired by numerous different animals.[42] A character with many different abilities and skills, he is physically one of the strongest characters of the Sonic series.[43] His strength and mastery of martial arts, specialising in punches, enables him to perform feats such as shattering boulders with his fists, while he can trap air underneath his dreadlocks in order to glide for short distances.

Fang the Sniper

Fang the Sniper,[i][44] initially known as Nack the Weasel[45] in English localizations, is a purple wolf/weasel hybrid[46] (a wolf/jerboa hybrid in Japan[47][48]) that first appeared in the Game Gear video game Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble in 1994. His character is a treasure hunter in search of the Chaos Emeralds; however he does not know of their true power and merely wants to sell them for profit.[45] He is a slick,[46] sneaky, and mischievous[44] character who will steal the Emeralds for an easier job.[45] Fang tries hard to outwit others, but is held back by his naivety and often fails.[44]

Outside of Triple Trouble, Fang had playable roles in Sonic Drift 2 and Sonic the Fighters in 1995 and 1996, and had been planned to be in the cancelled Sonic Xtreme. He has not had any significant roles since, though he made a cameo appearance on an in-game poster in 2011's Sonic Generations, and as an illusion during the boss fight with Heavy Magician in Sonic Mania in 2017.

Chaotix

The Chaotix are a group of four characters who debuted in the game Knuckles' Chaotix as the main characters, later forming their own detective agency in Sonic Heroes. IGN described the characters as "charming" and noted that they were introduced before fans became weary of all the new characters in the series.[49]

Charmy Bee

Charmy Bee[j] is a bee who is the "scatter-brained funny-kid" of the Chaotix.[50] He is cheerful, curious, playful, careless, and greatly energetic, often talking about things no one else cares about.[51] Charmy's fooling around makes the rest of the detective agency staff look professional, and he is generally seen as a "cute mascot".[50] Despite an innocent,[51] good-natured and light-hearted personality, he uses his stinging tail on rare occasions that he gets angry.[50][51] In addition to being a playable character in Sonic Heroes and Shadow the Hedgehog, he made cameos in all the Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games installments as a referee.

Espio the Chameleon

Espio the Chameleon[k] is a chameleon who is a ninjawarrior. He is described as the "opinionated number one" of the Chaotix, also being the calmest.[52] He has a "militaristic discipline" while being quiet and laid back.[53] Confident in his skills,[52] opinionated and self-obsessed,[53] he revels in training and self-discipline.[52] He is not concerned by danger, and often yearns to face it in order to use his ninja skills.[52] With his extensive training in ninjutsu and an ability to turn himself invisible, he is able to move around unnoticed.[53] However, a blunder like a sneeze could cause him to inadvertently become visible.[52]

Espio's debut was in the video game Knuckles' Chaotix. In the game, his color subtly changes while he moves to demonstrate the technical capabilities of the Sega 32X console.[54] Espio was incorporated into Sonic Heroes as part of a move to reintroduce neglected characters, and because the development team considered him to have a unique, interesting personality.[55] He was the designated "speed" character in Sonic Heroes while teammates Vector the Crocodile and Charmy Bee respectively represented "power" and "flight".[56] Espio was added to Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic Rivals 2 to help "round out our cast of characters", and because designer Takashi Iizuka appreciated the character's "stealthy agility".[57] Espio appeared as a playable character in the arcade fighting game Sonic the Fighters, and has also appeared in all installments of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games as the referee in various events.

Mighty the Armadillo

Mighty the Armadillo[l] is a black and red armadillo who debuted in the arcade game SegaSonic the Hedgehog, and later appeared in the 32X game Knuckles' Chaotix. The character is described as a traveler who loves nature and desires to see every place.[58] Mighty hates to see weaknesses in others[59] and detests violence.[58] He prefers to be gentle but undergoes a drastic change and is capable when needed.[58] Mighty's only appearance as part of the Chaotix was in Knuckles Chaotix, and was absent when the rest of the group was reintroduced into the series with Sonic Heroes in 2003. His long period of absence was alluded to in Sonic Generations, in which he is shown on a missing persons poster alongside fellow SegaSonic character Ray the Flying Squirrel. Both Mighty and Ray appeared as playable characters in the Sonic Mania expansion Sonic Mania Plus, as well as appearing in the accompanying web series Sonic Mania Adventures.

Vector the Crocodile

Vector the Crocodile[m] is a crocodile who is the "head honcho" and brains of the Chaotix Detective Agency.[50] Divided between being "bossy" and "easy-going", his rough speech and outward appearance mask his clear reasoning and ability to resolve cases.[60] For the right price he will take on most jobs, unless they involve doing something immoral.[50] Vector has a strong sense of justice and kindness, despite his argumentativeness.[60] He often does unpaid work due to his charitable nature,[50] leaving the agency constantly short on money.[60] Vector hates having to work for the landlord, but he enjoys singing,[60] and his trademark is a set of headphones.[50] He is physically very strong[60] and his powerful jaws are a formidable weapon.[50]

Vector was originally supposed to be in the sound test of the first Sonic the Hedgehog game, but he, along with the feature itself, was removed prior to release.[61] He was part of Team Chaotix in Sonic Heroes and is featured in Shadow the Hedgehog. In all installments of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, he is a playable athlete. He is playable in other spinoff titles such as Sonic Free Riders and Team Sonic Racing.

Big the Cat

Big the Cat[n] is a large purple cat who first appeared in the 1998 Dreamcast game Sonic Adventure, where he was placed to justify the presence of a fishing rod in the game, although he was conceived beforehand.[62] Big is a large, purple anthropomorphic cat, who is depicted as—while unintelligent—sweet, easygoing, and physically strong.[63][64]

In Sonic Adventure, Big's story involves fishing his frog friend, Froggy[o] out of various bodies of water after Froggy swallows a Chaos Emerald and part of the tail of Chaos, the game's antagonist. In Sonic Heroes, Big teams up with Amy Rose and Cream the Rabbit to search for Froggy and a lost Chao creature called Chocola. He is a more minor playable character in other Sonic games like Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood and Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing and a non-player character in titles such as the Nintendo DS version of Sonic Colors. Reflecting the story of Adventure, Big appears in the Sonic X anime and the Sonic the Hedgehog comics.

Big has been derided by the video game press and fanbase for his obesity, low intelligence, one-dimensional development and uselessness within his games; he has appeared on several lists of the worst video game characters of all time and within the Sonic cast.[65][66][67] Due to his poor reception and apparent uselessness, Sonic Team claimed they would be retiring the character from appearing in future games in 2012,[68] although head Takashi Iizuka has since stated that a game starring Big is a possibility.[69] Despite this statement, Big has continued to appear in other titles, including Sonic Runners, Lego Dimensions, and Team Sonic Racing.[70][71]

Chaos

Not to be confused with Chao (Sonic).

Chaos[p] is a Chao mutated by the Chaos Emeralds that acts as a guardian for its species, protects the Master Emerald, and provides clear water around its altar.[72] It is a water-like being that can easily manipulate its body. Without any Chaos Emeralds, it is known as "Chaos Zero", but with each Emerald it absorbs, it transforms into a more powerful form, eventually becoming "Perfect Chaos" with all 7 Emeralds.

Its first appearance is in Sonic Adventure, where Dr. Eggman attempts to use it to conquer the world. Chaos tracks down the emeralds, becomes "Perfect Chaos", and floods all of Station Square, but is ultimately defeated by Super Sonic. It reappears in Sonic Adventure 2 as a bonus multiplayer character, in Sonic Battle as a playable fighter, and in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games as an ice version of Perfect Chaos. He reappears in his perfect form in Sonic Generations as a boss where he has a new look with green teeth and dark blue reptilian skin for the upper half of his body.[73] This was supposed to be how he always looked, but the technology of the Dreamcast at the time made this look impossible.[74] Chaos appears as the final boss in the Sonic the Hedgehog pack of Lego Dimensions.

E-100 Series

The E-100 Series is a group of robots created by Doctor Eggman, who uses them in his quest to conquer the world; However some of their members have since gone rogue.[75]

E-100 Alpha

E-100 Alpha,[q] better known as Zero, is the first of the E-100 series and considered the prototype of the line.[76] He was created by Dr. Eggman and ordered to capture the Chaos Emerald from Amy Rose's Flicky friend, Birdie. He first appeared in Sonic Adventure as the main antagonist in Amy's story, where he repeatedly tries to capture Birdie. At the end of Amy's story, she destroys him. In Sonic Advance 2, he appears in special stages, trying to prevent players from getting the seven Chaos Emeralds.

E-102 Gamma

E-102 Gamma[r] also primarily appears in Sonic Adventure. He is a red, bulky robot[77] with a powerful gun built into his arm.[78] Gamma turns against his master after a heartfelt conversation with Amy Rose, who becomes his friend.[79][80] He offers shoot-'em-up gameplay to a largely platforming-focused game.[81] Gamma later appears as a playable character in Sonic Battle. He has garnered mixed comments from critics.[82] While Xbox World generally commended his story,[83] others criticized the slow and repetitive nature of his gameplay.[84][85][86]

E-123 Omega

E-123 Omega[s] first appears in Sonic Heroes, Eggman seals Omega within an abandoned base, along with Shadow, until Rouge the Bat releases Shadow from his stasis pod, accidentally reactivating Omega.[87] Omega expresses a deep hatred for Eggman due to the latter locking him up in stasis for an extended period of time. Omega decides to team up with the other two in order to obtain revenge on Eggman and prove that he is the most powerful robot of all.[88] He returns with the same goal in Shadow the Hedgehog, and teams up with Shadow in certain levels to destroy Eggman's robots. During Sonic the Hedgehog 2006, he is playable after Rouge orders him to support Shadow many years in the future.[89] He is also one of the secret unlockable characters in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood.[90] He also appeared in the DS version of Sonic Colors where he challenges Sonic to perform a mission, and reveals to Sonic the location of Eggman's base in the Asteroid Coaster world. In Sonic Forces, Omega is severely damaged by Infinite, but is repaired by Tails and becomes a member of the Resistance. Omega has appeared in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games as a rival in speed skating and intense short track[91] and in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games as a rival in the 100m Sprint. Omega appears as a playable racer in Team Sonic Racing.

Omega has an array of destructive weapons concealed in his arms, including machine guns, flamethrowers, missile launchers, beam cannons and rocket-propelled drills. He can retract his hands in order to attach a spinning Shadow and Rouge in their place, either using the two as melee weapons or firing them.[87] Omega has seen negative reception. Eurogamer staff writer Tom Bramwell called Omega a "lesser" character among the Heroes cast.[92] An Electronic Gaming Monthly preview of Heroes referred to him as an imitation of the T-1000s from the film Terminator 2: Judgment Day.[93] However, Jeremy Dunham from IGN called Omega a "supreme machine".[94]

Omochao

Omochao[t] () is a robotChao with a propeller on its head. Omochao was introduced in Sonic Adventure as part of the Chao Races, and it later appeared in Sonic Adventure 2, where it serves as an in-game manual to teach players how to play the game. It has filled a similar tutorial role in other games such as Sonic Heroes, Sonic Advance 3, Sonic Generations, and Lego Dimensions. The character has made other sporadic appearances throughout the series, including as a type of gun in Shadow the Hedgehog, a referee in Sonic Riders, a collectible card and referee in Sonic Rivals 2, a referee in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games, a supporting character in multiplayer of Sonic and the Secret Rings, and the host of the World Grand Prix in Sonic Free Riders. Its only playable appearance is as one of a group of playable chao in Team Sonic Racing. "Omochao" is a pun on "omocha"[95] and "chao".

Tikal the Echidna

Tikal[u] () is an orange echidna, who is the daughter of Chief Pachacamac[v] from the same tribe that Knuckles the Echidna descends, the Knuckles Tribe.[96] She first appears in Sonic Adventure and returns in Sonic Adventure 2. Thousands of years before the main events of the series, she opposes her father's power-hungry ways of invading other countries.[97] She eventually comes into contact with Chaos and a group of Chao at the shrine of the Master Emerald, who accept her due to her friendliness to them. She tries to reason with him about raiding the shrine for the emeralds, but he, hesitated by what she said to him, briefly snaps at her and orders the Knuckles Clan to attack. When the Clan does as it is told, they ran over Tikal and the Chao, which angers Chaos, as he punishes Pachacamac and the Knuckles Clan for what they did to Tikal and the Chao, by destroying them, absorbing the negative power of the emeralds. After that, Tikal tells the Master Emerald to stop Chaos, as it seals her inside itself.[98] Several thousand years later, Doctor Eggman shatters the Master Emerald and awakens the angry Chaos and Tikal's spirit. Tikal helps the main characters defeat Chaos and then leaves with it.[99] Tikal appears in Sonic Advance and Sonic Advance 2 in a Chao minigame, and makes a cameo appearance on the Angel Island board of Sonic Pinball Party. In both Sonic Rivals and Sonic Rivals 2, she appears on a variety of collectible cards. In Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games and Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, she appears as an unlockable Mii costume. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, she is a collectable sticker. Tikal appears as a playable character in Sonic Runners.

Shadow the Hedgehog

Main article: Shadow the Hedgehog

Shadow the Hedgehog[w] is an artificially created life form in the design of a black and red malehedgehog, similar to Sonic. His trademark hover skates propel him at extreme speeds that rival those of Sonic.[100]

According to official profiles, Shadow was created 50 years ago by Professor Gerald Robotnik as the "Ultimate Life Form",[101] which is ageless and immortal.[102] Sharp witted and seemingly always on the edge,[7][103] once he has set himself to a goal, he will do whatever it takes to accomplish it,[7] regardless of any danger.[104] After the trauma of the death of his only friend, Maria Robotnik, Shadow strives to fulfill his purpose and keep the promise he made to her.[7][104] Although his relationship with Sonic seems to have developed from antagonistic to friendly rivalry, animosity from not understanding their different mindsets still occurs.[105]

However, Shadow shares a lot of similarities with Sonic.[104][106] He can perform spin attacks common to Sonic,[101] which are a variation on the tendency for hedgehogs to roll into tight balls for protection. Additionally, with the power of a Chaos Emerald, Shadow can warp time and space with Chaos Control.[101][103][104] Shadow is also able to use a variety of other Chaos powers, such as "Chaos Spear" and "Chaos Blast".[104]

Using the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds, Shadow uses his super transformation to transform into Super Shadow[107] and bestows new abilities of flight and near invulnerability, with normal abilities of speed and enhanced Chaos powers.

Professor Gerald Robotnik

Professor Gerald Robotnik[x] is the grandfather of Maria Robotnik and Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik. Fifty years before the main series, he attempted to create the "Ultimate Life Form" under the funding of the United Federation, hoping that it can help cure Maria's illness. He appears in Sonic Adventure 2 and Shadow the Hedgehog.

Maria Robotnik

Maria Robotnik[y] is a character that appears mostly in flashbacks in Sonic Adventure 2 and Shadow the Hedgehog. She is the granddaughter of Professor Gerald Robotnik, and is the cousin of Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik. Maria suffers from the illness known as "NIDS" (Neuro-Immuno Deficiency Syndrome), which was incurable at the time. Gerald takes on Project Shadow in order to save her life. Soon after Shadow is created, the two bond deeply, though it is short-lived as the government organization "G.U.N." soon raids the ARK, fatally shooting Maria. Before she dies, she encases Shadow in an escape pod and asks him to bring hope to humanity and give humans a chance to be happy. This experience with Maria scars Shadow for life, but ultimately his determination to keep his promise to her leads him to team up with Sonic and save the Earth multiple times.

Maria's first, and only, playable appearance is in Shadow the Hedgehog, where she can be controlled as a partner character by a second player during specific in-game missions.

Rouge the Bat

Rouge the Bat[z] is a white, anthropomorphic bat who made her first appearance in Sonic Adventure 2 in 2001, and who has been featured in most games since. She is depicted as a professional treasure hunter devoted to the pursuit of jewels,[108] calling herself the "World's Greatest Treasure Hunter". She has a tendency to ignore abstract morality or manners for potential profit;[109] her "feminine charm" makes her appear careless, but she is actually scheming and manipulative.[108] Additionally, she serves as a part-time spy for the government, and is a competent fighter.[108] She battles using kicks, especially her signature "Screw Kick," and she can fly using her wings.[110]

Cream the Rabbit and Cheese

Cream the Rabbit[aa] is a peach-coloredrabbit with a constant companion named Cheese,[ab] a blue Chao with a red bow-tie. Their names were based on "cream cheese".[111][112] Cream is portrayed as being naive because of being brought up like a princess by her mother, Vanilla.[113] She always politely minds her manners[114] but sometimes acts childishly.[114] Cream can achieve flight for short periods of time by flapping her two large ears,[113] while Cheese often attacks on Cream's behalf by ramming into her adversaries.[115]

Cream first appeared as a playable character in Sonic Advance 2.[116] She returned in Sonic Heroes as part of "Team Rose", working together with Amy Rose and Big the Cat to defeat Metal Sonic,[117] and then again for Sonic Advance 3.[118]

Since her first trio of games, she has been relegated to being an extra playable character in Sonic spinoffs and multiplayer games. She is a playable character in the Sonic and the Secret Rings multiplayer mode, a playable fighter within Sonic Battle, a secret unlockable party member in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood[119] and a playable racer in Sonic Riders, Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, and Sonic Free Riders.

Cream has received mostly negative opinions from the video game press. Thomas East of Official Nintendo Magazine ranked her as the fifth worst Sonic character, criticizing various aspects of her like her high-pitched voice, repetitious speech in Sonic Heroes, "ridiculous smile", and single eyelash on each eye.[120] Christian Nutt of GameSpy singled her out as one of the negative features of Sonic Advance 2, calling her "corny" and "dopey-looking".[121]GamesRadar writer Jim Sterling ranked her as their second worst, stating that she "represents perhaps everything that's wrong with Sonic the Hedgehog characters", particularly finding her name to be random.[122] Similarly, Tom Bramwell of Eurogamer exclaimed "oh God" at her and Cheese's names.[123] David Houghton of GamesRadar ranked her name as one of the 25 worst among all video game characters, seeing a double entendre in the word "cream".[124] In contrast, Xbox World's review of Heroes stated that "we love Cream" and called her "the best new Sonic character since Tails."[125]

G.U.N. Commander

The G.U.N. Commander[ac] is the leader of the Guardian Units of Nations (G.U.N.), a major military organization in the Sonic universe. His childhood took place aboard the ARK, a massive space station that was first explored in Sonic Adventure 2, although he did not appear in that game. While there, he befriended Maria Robotnik and witnessed the creation of Shadow. His family was killed when G.U.N. attacked the ARK, and he began to harbor a deep resentment towards Shadow as a result of this, though he would later join the organization. He appears throughout Shadow the Hedgehog as an antagonist; he tries to kill Shadow at first, though in one of the game's branching pathways, he realizes that Shadow has no memories of the incident and lets him go. Dialogue from levels in this game indicates that he has at least one child and one grandchild. The Commander also appears in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, where he allies with the game's playable characters against the Marauders, an antagonistic nation.

Blaze the Cat

Blaze the Cat[ad] is a purple catprincess from an alternate dimension. She has been appointed as guardian of the Sol Emeralds, her dimension's version of the Chaos Emeralds,[126] making her role similar to that of Knuckles the Echidna.[127] She is portrayed as calm and levelheaded, hiding her true feelings.[128] She is sometimes "bogged down" by her own strict discipline and devotion to her position, making her appear withdrawn.[128] Blaze can control fire,[126] but wears a cape to conceal it as she was teased about her pyrokinetic abilities when she was young.[127] Using the Sol Emeralds, she transforms into Burning Blaze. Blaze wears a purple dress and white tights with pink high heels and a yellow necklace.

Blaze debuted in Sonic Rush as a playable character along with Sonic.[129] She arrives in Sonic's dimension from another dimension along with the Sol Emeralds. While searching for the Emeralds, she befriends Sonic and Cream and helps them stop Dr. Eggman and Eggman Nega before returning to her dimension. She reappears in Sonic the Hedgehog as Silver the Hedgehog's friend during the future of Sonic's dimension. The two attempt to fix their ruined future world by traveling back in time. Blaze ends up sacrificing her life to seal Iblis, the fiery monster that has destroyed their world, inside herself, but is brought back to life at the end of the game when Sonic destroyed Iblis in his own time period. She appeared again as the main character in Sonic Rush Adventure, where Sonic and Tails are transported to her dimension and help her retrieve the "Jeweled Scepter".[130]

Since her first trio of games, she has been relegated to being an extra playable character in Sonic spinoffs and multiplayer games. She is an unlockable multiplayer character in the Sonic and the Secret Rings and Sonic and the Black Knight, a playable racer in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, Sonic Free Riders and Team Sonic Racing, and a playable athlete in all five Mario and Sonic at the Olympics games. She appears together with Silver in Sonic Colors DS in several cutscenes and missions.

Blaze has been mostly well-received by critics. IGN remarked upon seeing her at TGS 2005 that she "easily earned her place in the team" amidst unremarkable secondary characters. Her gameplay has been praised as "fast-moving and fun" as opposed to slower characters introduced earlier in the series,[131] but criticized for its resemblance to that of Sonic.[132] Blaze has been called "a nice addition to Sonic's cast" and "one of the more complex, multifaceted characters in the Sonic canon".[132][133]

Eggman Nega

Eggman Nega[ae] is Eggman's descendant from 200 years in the future, first introduced in Sonic Rush as the arch-enemy of Blaze the Cat and later Silver the Hedgehog.[134] He is known to cause trouble not only through time travel, but through inter-dimensional travel as well. Although his outward appearance resembles that of Doctor Eggman, his personality is different.[135] He is heartless and calculating, but maintains polite speech and manners.[135] His exact role in the overall series varies; in the Sonic Rush series, he works alongside the original Eggman as a team.[136]

Babylon Rogues

The Babylon Rogues are a group of avian thieves. They have only appeared collectively in the three racing games Sonic Riders, Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity and Sonic Free Riders. Producer Takashi Yuda considered them best-suited for Sonic series racing games, and noted in a 2006 interview that Sonic characters are usually designed with one specific storyline in mind.[137]

The Rogues have received predominantly negative comments from gaming journalists. Alex Navarro and Joe Dodson of GameSpot separately criticized their clichéd backstory,[138][139] as did Eurogamer's Tom Bramwell.[140]IGN's Jack DeVries specifically called Jet a "jerk" and stated that his voice is annoying, especially in Free Riders.[141]

Jet the Hawk

Jet the Hawk[af] is a green hawk and the leader of the Babylon Rogues,[142] and nicknamed the "Legendary Wind Master"[143] due to his mastery of Extreme Gear.[144] This mastery comes from his forefathers.[142] His skills make him a possible match to Sonic the Hedgehog,[144] whom he considers a rival.[142] Jet is aware of his duties as leader but must sometimes be helped by his team.[142] Filled with extreme pride, the thing he likes most other than treasure is himself.[142] He despises losing and those who are faster or more confident than him and fights using Bashyo Fans.[142]

Wave the Swallow

Wave the Swallow[ag] is a purple swallow who is the team's mechanic, as her father was for the previous generation of the Babylon Rogues.[145] Gifted in this craft,[145] she has a superb mechanical knowledge of Extreme Gear, which surpasses both Miles "Tails" Prower and Dr. Eggman.[146] Because of this knowledge, she is full of confidence.[147] She hates thick-headed or stupid people and notices everything, but her advice tends to be understandable only to her.[147] Although she looks on Jet the Hawk as an "unreliable younger brother" and can be stubborn, she follows his leadership.[147]

Storm the Albatross

Storm the Albatross[ah] is a hulking albatross who is described as the muscle of the Babylon Rogues and Jet the Hawk's "right hand man."[148] The strength of his loyalty to Jet is greater than any other and he hates rivals to the team.[149] When he is angry, he becomes destructive;[149] and the raw power of his physical strength makes up for his lower intelligence[148] and lack of speed.[150] With his quick temper, he may stutter when flustered,[148] and he hates having to wait.[149]

Silver the Hedgehog

Silver the Hedgehog[ai] is a silver-furred hedgehog from 200 years in the future of the main timeline. He first appeared in the 2006 Sonic the Hedgehog. His individual episode revolves around him traveling back in time with Blaze the Cat to find and slay Sonic the Hedgehog, who they believe is the cause of their world being destroyed in the future. Silver's primary ability is telekinesis;[151] he is able to levitate objects and use them as projectiles to either defeat enemies, or interact with his environment.[152] Like Sonic and Shadow, he transforms into his "super form" by using the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds.

Silver's creation was inspired by the game's early development stages, where the development team was making huge levels with multiple paths through them, and decided they wanted to include a new character with unique abilities for an alternate way to play through the levels.[151] The design team developed over fifty different concepts for the character.[151] At one point he was to actually be an orange mink named Venice (named after the city of the same name), but the developers ultimately decided against this, fearing a mink would not blend in with the rest of the characters.[151] They ended up deciding to make another hedgehog instead.[151] Orange was originally decided for his fur, but they soon moved away from that in color, in favor to a white-gray one.[151] While developing the character models and textures, they focused on using the hardware to develop the textures rather than just use white-gray, which lead to Silver's color and name.[151] Additionally, Silver's backstory was inspired by Trunks from the 1984 manga Dragon Ball, who made a similar journey to the past to kill two androids that would eradicate most of humanity in his own time; the script for Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) flat-out states "Essentially, think Trunks from Dragon Ball Z."[153]

Since his first appearance in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), he has mainly appeared in the Sonic series' spinoffs, multiplayer games, and small cameo roles. He is one of the playable characters in Sonic Rivals and Sonic Rivals 2, a playable character strictly in the multiplayer modes in Sonic and the Secret Rings and Sonic and the Black Knight, a playable racer in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity,[154]Sonic Free Riders and Team Sonic Racing, and a playable athlete in the Mario & Sonic series beginning with Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. He appears in Sonic Generations as a boss in the stages Crisis City (console version) and Tropical Resort (3DS version). Additionally, Silver was one of a few Sega characters to make a cameo in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, in the background of Sonic's Green Hill Zone stage,[155] and as a trophy and sticker.[156]

The character has generally not been very well-received by critics.[157][158]

Orbot and Cubot

Orbot[aj] () is a red robotic assistant of Dr. Eggman who first appears in Sonic Unleashed. While he generally assists in monitoring Eggman's data, he often makes sarcastic remarks pointing out general flaws in Eggman's plans, prompting a quick smack in return. He appears again in Sonic Colors, alongside a similar yellow robot named Cubot[ak] ().[159] Conversely to Orbot, Cubot is rather slow, not witty, and suffers from a defect in Sonic Colors that causes him to randomly speak with different accents.[160] The two have continued to appear as assistants to Dr. Eggman in subsequent titles, such as Sonic Generations,Sonic Lost World and Sonic Forces. The duo made a cameo in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games as one of the helping characters in the London Party, copying stickers for the participants.[161] The duo appeared in Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games as the hosts of the Action and Answer Tour and in the Sonic Boom animated series. Digital Spy praised their inclusion in the plot of Sonic Colors, especially Cubot for his humorous observations and self-awareness about the game's tropes.[159]

Wisps

Wisps[al] are a race of extraterrestrial creatures who live on a grassy, lush planet called Planet Wisp.[162][163] The mother of all Wisps is a much larger, pink one named Mother Wisp.[164] She created Planet Wisp and raised all of her children.[165] Wisps speak a common language that Sonic and Tails cannot understand,[166] though Tails builds a translation device in the game Sonic Colors.[167] Their Japanese and English name comes from Tails' translation of a word in their language;[168] other characters in the game refer to them as "aliens".[169][170] Wisps are composed of an energy force called "Hyper-go-ons",[171] which they can use to phase into the body of playable protagonist Sonic and give him temporary elemental powers.[162][172] They come in numerous breeds, each carrying one of many elemental powers known as "Color Powers".[162] When Sonic collects a Wisp, he can use its power once at will; however, he can only carry one at a time.[173]

There are numerous types of Wisps, each with its own special ability. Colors introduced ten types between the Wii and Nintendo DS versions of the game; some only appear in one version. For example, Purple Wisps, whose "Frenzy" ability turns Sonic into a difficult-to-control demon that can chomp through obstacles, is exclusive to the Wii version,[174] but Violet Wisps, which scale up Sonic's density to black hole-like levels and causes him to absorb enemies, obstacles, and rings, appear only in the DS version.[175] However, others appear in both versions, such as Yellow Wisps, which allow Sonic to drill underground and find otherwise inaccessible areas.[174]Lost World introduced more types of Wisps while keeping some old types.[176] Among these are Magenta Wisps, which bounce Sonic across paths of musical notes by having the player tap them on the Wii U's touch screen,[177] and Black Wisps, which turn Sonic into a bomb that can roll over enemies and explode.[178] The Colors manual describes each type of Wisp as having a different general personality; for example, Cyan Wisps, which allow Sonic to bounce off surfaces, are scatterbrained and energetic, while Orange Wisps, which blast him rapidly into the air, have fluctuating and explosive emotions.[179]

In Sonic Colors, Eggman builds an amusement park spanning the Wisps' planets under the pretense of making up for past transgressions.[163][180][181] Suspicious, Sonic and Tails investigate and rescue two Wisps from Orbot and Cubot.[170][182][183] One of them, a talkative male White Wisp named Yacker, tags along with Sonic and Tails during the game.[184] It turns out that Eggman is converting Wisps to a corrupted, purple (Wii version) or violet (DS version) state to fuel a mind control ray and control the universe.[185][186][187] Sonic frees Wisps from their confines in each level,[188] then uses several of them to defeat Eggman at the end of the game.[189] However, Eggman's mind control cannon malfunctions and creates a black hole, which sucks Sonic in until the Wisps combine their power to pull him out and neutralize the black hole.[190] Yacker frees the remaining Wisps, reverts them from their corrupted form, thanks Sonic and Tails,[191] and leaves.[192] The DS version features Mother Wisp as a post-game boss, as she was corrupted by the corrupted Wisps' Hyper-go-ons.[193][194] Wisps have also appeared in the level "Planet Wisp" in Sonic Generations[195] and the comics.[196] Iizuka stated in an interview that the Wisps were added to Colors to "expand and strengthen the platformaction gameplay" without forcing the player to switch to other playable characters.[197] Another goal was to encourage players to revisit already-played levels; Sonic Team accomplished this by adding segments requiring certain types of Wisps to levels preceding their first appearances.[198] Iizuka has said that he now considers them a staple in the Sonic series.[199]

Critics have given mixed opinions toward Wisps and their integration into Sonic gameplay. IGN's Arthur Gies called them "the big addition" to Sonic Colors, outshining its polished physics and controls.[162] Dave McComb of film magazine Empire called them "cutesy" and "strange",[200] while John Meyer of Wired found them "cuddly" and Dale North of Destructoid called them "a cute little alien race".[201][202] Randy Nelson from Joystiq called them "plush" and speculated that they could easily lend their image to profitable merchandise.[203] Positive attention has been directed at the variety of Wisps available in Sonic Colors and Lost World and at the variety of gameplay styles they brought to the titles: for example, Gies stated that "almost all of them add interesting quirks to Sonic's basic abilities."[162] Reviewing the Nintendo DS version of Colors, Tim Turi from Game Informer stated that "each adds an interesting new gameplay mechanic" to the game.[175] Gies and Turi also praised the ability to revisit old levels with Wisps unlocked afterwards.[162][175]Nintendo Power's Steve Thomason identified them as "a truly interesting addition to the Sonic formula" amidst a series of missteps, and praised their "cleverly designed" variety.[174]Computer and Video Games writer Chris Scullion described Wisps in Lost World as "familiar power-ups that emulate mechanics in Mario's Wii adventures" as part of a larger, ambivalent point about the game being derivative of Super Mario Galaxy.[204] However, control and pacing aspects of the Wisps in general, as well as of individual types, have been criticized: for example, Turi opined that "for almost every useful ability there is a complete dud" and bemoaned the Wii controls.[205] Justin Speer from GameTrailers thought similarly and added that the Wisps "don't really feel like they belong".[206]Hardcore Gamer Magazine's review of Lost World stated that none of the Wisps make satisfying use of the Wii U's gamepad.[207] Chris Shilling of Eurogamer found them to "lead to clumsy touchscreen or gyro interludes that kill a level's pacing."[208]

Sticks the Badger

Sticks the Badger[am] is an orange and brown badger, first introduced in the animated Sonic Boom television series. Her characteristics are wild, energetic and paranoid, having lived in the wilderness alone for most of her life. Nonetheless, she is portrayed as wanting to strengthen her newfound friendship with Sonic, Amy, Tails and Knuckles.[209]

Sticks appears in a non-playable role in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric and as a playable character in Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal.

She is described as "infantile" by Scott Thompson of IGN[210] and an "unlikeable idiot" by Becky Cunningham of GamesRadar,[211] albeit a "nice addition" by Chris Carter of Destructoid.[212]

Sticks has appeared in other Sonic Boom titles, including Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom and Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, and has appeared in other Sonic titles not associated with the Boom sub-series, such as Sonic Runners and Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Silver the Hedgehogis a video game character in the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series. He made his debut for the series in the 2006 Sonic the Hedgehog game.

Design

Official concept artwork shows an early design of Silver The Hedgehog with a few differences. The main differences from the current final design include a long orange mane around his neck, bright blue eyes and different looking boots. More concept art of Silver was released in an interview with IGN, which was generally less similar to his current design. Notable designs include a hedgehog wearing a futuristic headset and another with markings on its quills. It is also revealed that Silver was originally named "Venice" after Venice, Italy, the place Soleanna is based on. He was also considered to be a mink, but the idea was later abandoned. Silver is said to have gone through over 50 different designs before reaching his final look.on another note it is a big misunderstanding and a well known joke (along with the line "its no use") that his head quills look like a marijuana leaf,when actually his quills where based of the Japanese maple leaf instead.

Game Appearances

In Sonic and the Black Knight, Silver appears as one of the Knights of the Round Table. He is called Sir Gallahad and is not in the main story line, but you can unlock him and Jet the Hawk (Sir Lamorak) to play as in the Multiplayer zone

He still has his psychic abilities shown that by pressing the A button on the wii remote he jumps with a cyan colored aura.

Also pressing the B button if your soul surge gauge has power in it he creates a field of psychic aura that leeches rings from opponents.

Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

Silver's introductory appearance is in Sonic the Hedgehog for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. His individual episode revolves around him travelling back in time to find the "Iblis Trigger" (Sonic the Hedgehog), who was the cause of his world being destroyed in the future. He is partnered with Blaze the Cat, a female cat who first debuted in Sonic Rush . Over the course of the game, Silver learns the truth about the "Iblis Trigger", and how his world can be saved from destruction.Silver's stages stray away from traditional Sonic elements as his stages center on the usage of his telekinetic abilities. Silver must use his psychic abilities to defeat enemies and solve puzzles. He is capable of altering surrounding environments at will, enabling access to various paths in the levels that other characters cannot, or require springs and other devices to reach. He is the slowest of the three main characters.

Sonic Rivals

Silver is another one of Sonic's rivals, as he is a main character in Sonic Rivals for the PlayStation Portable. His story involves him responding to a distress signal, though he doesn't know who is sending it. Over the course of the game, he finds out that Eggman Nega is linked to this distress signal. Silver states that he will bring Eggman Nega back to the future where he belongs.Silver's abilities are similar to that of the other characters (Sonic, Shadow, Knuckles, and Metal Sonic) as the game is based on competition. He is able to confuse opponents by altering their controls. He is also given several alternate costumes. As the events of Sonic the Hedgehog never happened, Silver and Sonic are introduced to each other in the storyline for the first time ever.

Sonic and The Secret Rings

While Silver is not part of the story in Sonic and The Secret Rings, he is playable in the game's Party Mode.

Sonic Rivals 2

Silver, along with Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Shadow, Espio, Rouge & Metal Sonic, appears in the sequel to Sonic Rivals: Sonic Rivals 2. He comes from the future once again to save both the past and his own time, somehow by collecting and hiding Chao from Eggman Nega. Espio, on orders from Vector, follows after Silver and eventually the two work together.

Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity

Silver is a playable character in the sequel to Sonic Riders. He is a Flight Type character and his default gear is Psychic Wave, which can turn into an Air Ride to access new areas.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Silver makes 2 cameo appearances in the third installment of Nintendo's smash hit, Super Smash Bros Brawl. His first cameo is as a collectable sticker and a trophy. His second cameo is in the Green Hill Zone stage where he, along with Tails and Knuckles, run across the background of the stage.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games

Silver is a playable character in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, He is also in adventure mode with Blaze.

Team Sonic Racing

Silver is part of Team Vector along with Blaze in Team Sonic Racing.

Personality

Silver has been described as having "a strong sense of justice" and it is this personality trait that motivates him to head back into the past to correct the future. Silver is also very caring and believes in standing up for those who cannot stand up for themselves, which is why he accepted Blaze The Cat when everyone else was teasing her because of her pyrokinetic abilities. Although seemingly serious in nature, an interview states that Silver is somewhat immature. During cutscenes in Sonic the Hedgehog Blaze mentions that Silver is naïve several times, and also states that "He gets insecure when he's alone". Silver is also very kind and caring, as displayed toward Amy Rose, Princess Elise and the Chao he hid from Eggman Nega. Silver also seems to not like Sonic's personality and finds him foolish just like Shadow. In the Archie comics, Silver is far more friendlier to Sonic and shows high respect for him.

Abilities

Silver's primary ability is Psychokinesis. He is shown to use the powers in a wide variety of ways. Offensive uses for his psychokinesis include being able to lift and throw anything in his path including objects, enemies, projectiles, and even other characters. He can also fire shock waves that can paralyze and kill enemies. Defensive abilities include freezing incoming objects and altering the control scheme of opposing players, and making them forget how to fight temporarily. Other uses for Silver's psychokinesis are hovering, levitating, flying, and warping through time and space during a jump. Silver at the beginning was shown to be slow at speed (due to a cut speed upgrade), compared to the other Sonic characters, but in the game Sonic Rivals he is shown to be very fast. Silver also uses many of the standard Sonic moves and attacks. These include Homing Attack, Spin Dash, Spin Attack, and super transformation. Silver is also shown to be able to Chaos Control on several accounts to warp through time and space.

Where, why I need to know, and immediately there are cars, many in the house dislike them, but I think theyre nothing, they dont turn up their noses, they are friendly, and in general she really turned out to be a pretty girl. My windows overlook the courtyard, the seventh floor, I took out my binoculars and when she went out, I looked at her, beautiful, slender and really out of this.
