This article is about the 2015 character. For the 2006 version of this character, see Sonic (2006 Series)
|Sonic the Hedgehog|
Sonic is a fleet-footed hedgehog who is known by the residents of Mobius as a great hero. He was born with the unnatural ability to run at supersonic speeds, and has used this gift to fight against the evil Dr. Eggman and keep him from enslaving innocent animals and taking over the world.
Metallix Saga Edit
Sonic and Shadow's capsule teleported into the Mushroom Kingdom during the first Smash Tournament. The capsule fell on Metal Bowser, cracking his shell and returning him to his normal form. When Kamek held Princess Peach hostage, Sonic jumped out of the capsule and knocked him away. After Mario defeated Bowser and also sent him out of the arena, Sonic confirmed that they were speaking to Mario and were in the Mushroom Kingdom.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Sonic is known to many as "the fastest thing alive" due to the unnaturally high running speeds he can achieve, even going as far as to break the sound barrier (hearkening to his namesake). Due to such speed, he can scale upright vertical surfaces and ceilings, run over water, outspeed lasers and missiles, and even cause the ground to explode in his wake. However, he has trouble keeping his balance when coming to an unexpected halt.
Sonic has incredible and flawless acrobatic skills and agility, alongside superhuman reflexes that lets him avoid any incoming obstacles with precise and delicate movements. He also has incredible jumping skills, capable of jumping up to several hundred meters. In battle, Sonic primarily uses his fast footwork as his greatest strength lies in his legs, though he will also sometimes use his arms and fists. What Sonic lacks in strength he makes up for in speed by delivering lightning fast strikes, either by landing several hits in a split second or striking foes using sheer momentum.
Sonic's signature technique is his Spin Attack - he can roll himself into a ball like hedgehogs do, and the resulting spinning form damages everything it makes contact with. His Spin Attacks are strong enough to cut through metal, pierce gigantic boulders, and damage foes countless times his size. It can also be utilized in mid-air as the Homing Attack, where he locks on to a target and shoots towards it in a ball form.
Sonic has also demonstrated the ability to harness the power of the Chaos Emeralds for his own use, although no where near the extent Shadow does. He can transform into Super Sonic when he possesses all seven Emeralds.
- Spin Dash
- Homing Attack
- Teria - An attack that first appeared and was named in Sonic Adventure 2. Sonic jumps forwards and kicks his opponent, while yelling "Teriaaaaa". This attack was first used on Kamek.
Shadow the Hedgehog Edit
Sonic and Shadow are rivals, having a very rocky past with each other. Ever since they first met they have fought, argued, and even sometimes had outright death matches, though Sonic is never out to take Shadow's life and does not consider him an enemy in the true sense of the word. Sonic has few limitations on his goals and will do anything to help save the world, but Shadow will stop at nothing to get what he wants without any concern of who or what it affects. Despite their differences, Sonic and Shadow share a mutual respect between them, though this is rarely apparent because they always argue and fight. During their adventures, Sonic has acknowledged Shadow's power and capabilities, even admitting that Shadow is only one who would have a chance against him in a race. The two are forced to work together to stop Metallix, and their rivalry often causes trouble and competition on their journey.
To be added
- In the original series, Doctor Eggman would have revealed how Sonic knew about Mario during the Doomship Arc. In the remake, this event will happen during Sonic's flashback in Episode 3.
