Amy Rose (エミー・ローズ Emī Rōzu?), also formerly known as Rosy the Rascal (ロージー・ザ・ラスカル Rōjī za Rasukaru?), is a fictional character from the Sonic the Hedgehog series. She is an anthropomorphic twelve-year-old pink hedgehog who first appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog CD. She has a major long-standing crush on Sonic the Hedgehog and has since meeting him become his self-proclaimed girlfriend and has attempted to win his heart by any means. She wields the Piko Piko Hammer, a powerful melee weapon which she uses with proficiency second to none and never leaves home without.[3]

Amy is a cheerful, though slightly erratic, girl. Always with a positive attitude, she is full of energy and passion. However, her infatuation with Sonic makes her shortsighted and a bit obsessive about chasing Sonic as she follows him everwhere, and she has a scary temper. Nevertheless, she has a pure heart and will not let anything stop her.

Amy is the first and most recurring female character in the Sonic the Hedgehog series and is also one of the most popular characters, coming in fifth place on an official popularity poll, being the most popular female character.[4]

Concept and Creation

150px-Amy Rose First Generation

Amy's original design in 1993.

Amy Rose is one of the few main characters in the Sonic the Hedgehog series to have her first appearance outside the Sega games. She was created by Kenji Terada for the various Sonic the Hedgehog manga published by Shogakukan, where she was known as "Eimi" (エイミー Eimī?). She first appeared in the April 1992 issue of Shogaku Ninensei, written and illustrated by Sango Morimoto. She also appeared in the unrelated series from Shogaku Ichinensei, Shogaku Sannensei, Shogaku Gonensei, Shogaku Rokunensei, and Coro Coro Comics Special, all of which were written and illustrated by different mangaka but based on Kenji Terada's initial concept. In these series, Eimi (no second name is given) is the girlfriend of Nikki, a nerdy young male hedgehog with the power to transform into the superhero, Sonic the Hedgehog. Eimi is also the target of the bully Anton Beruka. Because of the vastly different styles of the illustrators for these series, Eimi's design was different in each. She appeared most like her counterpart's later games appearances in the Coro Coro Comics Specials, written and illustrated by Tanaka Kouichi.

In 1993, the manga character was adapted by the Sonic CD team to be used in Sonic's Mega CD debut. Her final design for this game was done by Kazuyuki Hoshino. She appeared infrequently thereafter, in ensemble spin-off games such as Sonic the Fighters, Sonic Drift, Sonic Drift 2, and Sonic R. She did not appear in any of the early TV series, although she was included in most comics, including the Archie Comics series, the British Sonic the Comic and the French Sonic Adventures.

When Sonic Team reunited and started work on their three-dimensional follow-up to the classic Sonic games, Sonic Adventure, it was decided they would revive the pink hedgehog and give her a starring role in the game. Yuji Uekawa, the man who would redesign all the classic characters, did the most drastic changes to Amy. While Sonic, Tails and Knuckles all received minor design changes, Amy's clothing and hairstyle were completely revamped. She also had her entire figure redesigned to make her appear older, perhaps in an attempt to appeal to a different demographic than the rest of the Sonic characters.

Following Sonic Adventure, Amy became one of the main characters of the series, and has appeared in nearly every Sonic game since as well as the TV series Sonic X and the upcoming Sonic Boom.

History

Early Life

Not much is known about Amy's early life except that she had always loved fortunes and other mystical things, and that she practiced some of it using her own tarot cards.[5] At some point, she learned about Sonic the Hedgehog, who became her biggest hero and the one she wanted to marry.

Sonic the Hedgehog CD

Prior to the events of Sonic the Hedgehog CD, Amy predicted from her tarot cards that she would have a "destined" encounter with Sonic on the small satellite known as Little Planet.[5] Excited, Amy traveled to Never Lake where Little Planet would appear for one month every year and got to the small satellite. While in Palmtree Panic, Amy finally found Sonic where she was overtaken by love and excitedly grabbed onto him though Sonic did not reciprocate her advances. Still smitten with Sonic, Amy followed him to Collision Chaos when she was kidnapped by Metal Sonic, Dr. Ivo Robotnik's latest creation and taken into Robotnik's captivity.

Amy saved by Sonic from Little Planet

Sometime later, Amy was brought to Stardust Speedway where she was tied to a mast. Fortunately, she was freed by Sonic after he defeated Metal Sonic and Amy thanked her rescuer by lovingly hugging him. Later, after Sonic defeated Robotnik and the doctor's base began to fall apart around them, Amy was carried through the crumbling structures by Sonic and was safely brought back to earth. When Amy dared to look, she could only watch as Sonic ran away and freed Little Planet from its captivity.

Sonic the Fighters

In Sonic the Fighters, Dr. Robotnik constructed the Death Egg II to help conquer earth with his robots. Standing up to defeat Robotnik (and impress Sonic), Amy entered a fighting tournament where the winner would get the Chaos Emeralds belonging to the other participants, with herself already having one. If she won all the Chaos Emeralds, Amy would be allowed to use them to power Tails's single-seat Lunar Fox and use it to travel to the Death Egg II and destroy it.

At the end of the tournament, the victor got all the Chaos Emeralds and used them to go to the Death Egg II in the Luna Fox. There, the victor beat both Metal Sonic and Robotnik using the Emeralds and rigged the Death Egg II to self-destruct before heading back to earth in the Luna Fox moments before the massive space station exploded.

Sonic R

In Sonic R, Amy watched some global advertisement for the World Grand Prix, a racing competition to determine the fastest in the world which about to take place. Learning that Sonic would participate, Amy signed up for the World Grand Prix as well in hopes of winning over Sonic's heart.[6]

At the World Grand Prix, Amy ended up facing not only Sonic, but also Tails, Knuckles and Dr. Robotnik and his lackeys, who were planning to use Amy and her friends to find the Chaos Emeralds which were spread across the race tracks. In the end, Amy and the others kept Robotnik from the Chaos Emeralds, thus avoiding another world crisis.

Sonic Adventure

Amy and birdie chased by Zero

Amy and birdie escaping from ZERO.

In Sonic Adventure, Amy had returned to her home in downtown Station Square where she lived normal, albeit boring life while Sonic was gone on a journey. One day while out shopping, Amy was reminiscing about her old times with Sonic when she to her shock saw the Egg Carrier fly over the city, only for then to be knocked over by a small blue Flicky with a pendant which she named "birdie." Soon after, ZERO appeared and chased after Amy and birdie, but the two of them escaped the robot by hiding in a burger shop. Realizing that Dr. Eggman was after birdie, Amy promised to protect it all the way.

Soon after, Amy found Sonic outside Casinopolis where she asked him to be birdie's bodyguard. While Sonic refused her request, Amy tagged along with him anyway. Shortly after, ZERO showed up again but Amy, birdie and Sonic fled into Twinkle Park as Amy was drawn by the offer that "cute couples" got in free. When Amy and birdie thought they had lost ZERO after leaving Twinkle Park (while having lost Sonic in the process), however, the robot caught them and took them to the Mystic Ruins, where Dr. Eggman picked them up in the Egg Carrier and locked Amy and birdie in a cell. As she comforted birdie, Gamma came to collect birdie, but Amy refused to hand it over and instead pleaded it to release them. When Gamma could not understand Amy's devotion to birdie, Amy pitied Gamma's lack of emotions, but in a surprisingly turn of events, Gamma freed them from their cell. Seeing that it was a good robot, Amy gave Gamma her friendship and fled with birdie.

Amy protects Gamma

While escaping, Amy and birdie were taken into the past by a mysterious light where they saw Tikal meeting the Chao and Chaos at the Altar of the Emeralds for the first time. Returning to the present, Amy and Birdie escaped to the Egg Carrier's flight deck only to meet Dr. Eggman, but then Sonic and Tails came to her rescue. Initially delighted see her friends, Amy had birdie grabbed from her by Dr. Eggman who took a Chaos Emerald from its pendant. Gamma was then send to eliminate the intruders, but Amy stopped Sonic before he could destroy Gamma and convinced him it was good. As the Egg Carrier began to lose altitude, Sonic told Tails to fly Amy away. Before leaving though, Amy advised Gamma not to follow Dr. Eggman anymore and said her goodbyes as she was carried off the Egg Carrier by Tails.

Arriving in Station Square, Amy discovered from birdie's pendant that it had a family and decided to help find its family which was in Dr. Eggman's captivity. When they could not find anything in the Final Egg, Amy went to search the remains of the Egg Carrier. There, Amy found birdie's family when ZERO suddenly arrived and hurt birdie. Enraged, Amy finally destroyed ZERO and tended to birdie who recovered and happily flew off with its family. As Amy left the Egg Carrier, she resolved to try harder and make Sonic respect her.

Later, Amy returned to Station Square, which had been destroyed and flooded by Perfect Chaos, a powerful creature Dr. Eggman had tried to control but failed. After Perfect Chaos released the seven drain Chaos Emeralds, Amy found one and brought it to Sonic, while her other friends brought the other six Emeralds. Through their caring for each other, Amy watched Sonic use the Emeralds' positive Chaos Energy to transform into Super Sonic and defeat Perfect Chaos while neutralizing its evil.

Sonic Shuffle

Amy Sonic Shuffle

Amy entering Maginaryworld.

In Sonic Shuffle, Amy was with Sonic, Tails and Knuckles when they without warning were transported to Maginaryworld. As they landed in the Temple of Light, Amy and her friends were met by Lumina Flowlight, the one who had brought them to Maginaryworld. Lumina presented Maginaryworld to the group and explained that she had brought them here because she needed their help to restore the Perfect Precioustone which had been shattered by Void. Its pieces had then been scattered, and their guardian and protector of the Perfect Precioustone, Illumina, had vanish as such too. If the pieces remained lost, Void would destroy Maginaryworld. Ever helpful, Amy agreed to help Lumina with this crisis.

Having learned about their mission, Amy and her friends began with Lumina's help the task of recovering the Precioustone pieces from the different worlds within Maginaryworld and restoring the places affected by Void. Whenever they obtained a Precioustone, Amy and her friends had a dream where he met Void. In these dreams, Amy and the others initially stood defiant against Void, but they soon saw that Void was lonely and depressed which touched their hearts, and they eventually realized that Void and Lumina embodied the positive and negative aspects of dreams and were two halves of the same being.

After all the Precioustones had been returned to the Temple of Light, Amy and her group went there when Void headed there too to get the Perfect Precioustone again. As Sonic, Lumina and the rest got to the temple to stop Void, Void claimed he just want to become whole, but never could. Seeing Amy and the others' refusal of him, Void’s was consumed by sadness and turned into a monster, but Amy, Sonic, Knuckles and Tails defeated him.

Despite having beaten Void, Lumina lost hope as the Perfect Precioustone did not recovered despite Amy telling her no to think like that. When Sonic found Void who had become a dark gem, the group tried to make Lumina accept Void, with Amy telling her that dreams always helped someone get through troubled times. Having cheered up Lumina, Amy and the others witnessed Lumina restoring the Perfect Precioustone, and Lumina and Void merging back into their original form, Illumina. With Marginaryworld being restored to an even better place, Amy and her friends received Illumina's gratitude before they returned home.

Sonic Adventure 2

Amy and Tails on Prison Island

Amy meeting Tails on Prison Island.

In Sonic Adventure 2, Amy learned that Sonic had been arrested by the military troops and imprisoned on Prison Island. As such, she traveled to Prison Island alone to rescue Sonic. After arriving there, Amy stumbled upon Shadow the Hedgehog and initially mistook him for Sonic, but soon saw he was not Sonic and that he was with Dr. Eggman and Rouge, who had come to steal the islands' Chaos Emeralds. Amy was cornered by Eggman, but was saved at the last minute by Tails. After Amy had explained to Tails why she was here, the two teamed up to free Sonic from the prison. With Tails' help, Amy found Sonic's prison cell where she learned from Sonic he was imprisoned because of the actions of Shadow. As Amy told Sonic about Shadow and his allegiance to Eggman, she freed him from his cell using a key card she snatched earlier, before chasing after Sonic as he left. When Prison Island then began to explode, Amy, Sonic and Tails got off the island before it was destroyed.

Because of her involvement in Sonic's escape however, Amy was made an arrest target of G.U.N. too. As the trio went to Central City, Amy, Sonic and Tails saw a broadcast from Eggman, where he revealed the Space Colony ARK and displayed the Eclipse Cannon, powered by six Chaos Emeralds, by blowing up half of the Moon, before demanding total world control within 24 hours or he would fire the cannon at earth. Just as Tails had the idea of tracking Eggman with his own Chaos Emerald, the police arrived, forcing Amy and Tails get away and find Eggman while Sonic distracted them. As Tails planned a way of finding Eggman with Sonic over radio, Amy and Tails met Knuckles and Amy literally dragged him into their adventure.

After locating Eggman, Amy and her friends found Eggman's base with Knuckles' help where they expected to find a space ship that could take them to the ARK so they could destroy the Eclipse Cannon. When the group reached the base's center, however, they were ambushed by Dr. Eggman and his Egg Golem. While Sonic took care of the Egg Golem, Amy and the others found a space shuttle and used it to take off into space.

Amy held hostage

Amy held hostage by Eggman

While en route to Space Colony ARK, Knuckles attempted to take control of the shuttle when a stray asteroid released his Emerald Shards into space, causing Amy and her friends crash land on the ARK. Onboard, however, Amy was left behind by Sonic and Tails while they left to destroy the Eclipse Cannon with a fake Chaos Emerald. No sooner, Amy was taken hostage by Dr. Eggman who demanded the locations of Sonic and Tails while holding her at gunpoint. When Sonic and Tails came to exchange their Chaos Emerald for Amy's life with Eggman, however, Eggman knew they were trying to give him the fake Emerald so he trapped Sonic in a capsule set to explode. As Amy got Sonic's goodbyes, Sonic's capsule was shot into space and exploded, leaving Amy crying in grief. After Tails beat Eggman (though they still lost their Chaos Emerald), Amy and Tails heard Sonic, who had survived the explosion, over the radio and they watched him destroy the Eclipse Cannon.

Amy met up with everyone in the ARK's control room when it was revealed the Space Colony ARK was on a collision course with earth. Everyone then saw a recording of Gerald Robotnik announcing to the world that the ARK would crash into the planet and destroy it as his revenge at the world for the death of his granddaughter, Maria. Banding together with Eggman, the group came up with plan of using the Master Emerald to deactivate the cannon's core, which was powered by the seven Chaos Emeralds, to stop the Space Colony's crash course.

Amy asking Shadow

Amy pleading for Shadow's help.

On their way, Amy was left behind by everyone, but then came across Shadow, who also wished the world destroyed as he wanted Maria avenged, and begged for his help. Though telling him that humanity was worth saving and deserved to be happy, Amy made Shadow remember that Maria wished for him to bring hope to humanity, thus convincing him to help. After stopping the Chaos Emeralds, however, the Biolizard merged with the ARK, becoming the Finalhazard and kept the ARK on its collision course. As Super Sonic and Super Shadow then fought the Finalhazard, Amy supported them through transmission lines.

After Super Sonic and Super Shadow beat the Finalhazard and brought the Space Colony ARK back into orbit, Amy and the others found Sonic returning alone, informing them that Shadow had seemingly died in the fight. As Amy tried to talk with Sonic about Shadow's death, they all decided to head back home to earth.

Sonic Advance series

Sonic Advance

In Sonic Advance, Amy joined forces with Sonic, Tails and Knuckles to stop Dr. Eggman from obtaining the seven Chaos Emeralds. Over the course of their adventure, Amy and her friends recovered the Chaos Emeralds before Eggman, who they chased to the X-Zone. After they defeated the EGG X, Amy, Tails and Knuckles returned to Earth while Super Sonic faced Eggman in a final confrontation on the moon. There, they awaited Sonic's return, but grew confused when he did not show up. A few days later though, Sonic finally returned.

Sonic Advance 3

In Sonic Advance 3, where the earth was split into seven regions by a massive Chaos Control induced by Dr. Eggman, Amy met Sonic and his friends in Toy Kingdom. There, Amy thought Sonic would ask her out and even pulled her Piko Piko Hammer to make him admit his feelings for her. Amy then joined Sonic and his friends in their mission to restore the world and stop Eggman.

Amycrying

Amy overjoyed at Sonic's return.

Traveling across the different regions, Amy and her friends eventual recovered the seven Chaos Emeralds and had Cream join them. Along the way, Amy also faced Dr. Eggman's newest creation, Gemerl, a rebuilt version of Emerl. Eventually, Amy and the others made it to the Emerald Altar where they beat the Hyper EggRobo and used the Master Emerald to return the world to normal. Later, Amy and the others found Sonic after his battle with Ultimate Emerl and she welcomed him tearfully back. Shortly after, Amy following Sonic out on new adventures.

Sonic Heroes

In Sonic Heroes, Amy had been without contact with Sonic for a month. Making little progress on his trail, she almost gave up when she saw Sonic's picture in a newspaper. Excited, Amy went to the publishers to ask where the picture was taken when she met Big, Cream and Cheese who revealed they looked for Chocola and Froggy respectively, both of whom appeared with Sonic in the newspaper picture.[7] As they pondered on their only clue, Amy nearly lost it to a breeze, but her friends got it back. Regrouping, the quartet then set out to find their friends, forming Team Rose.

Found you Sonic

Amy catching Sonic in the city.

As Team Rose took their search to the coast, they were attacked by Dr. Eggman and his Egg Hawk, but they defeated the mech and made the doctor retreat. Following her heart's hunches, Amy led her team to Grand Metropolis where they after escaping the Power Plant found Team Sonic. This time, Amy tried to force Sonic to marry her by fighting him, but Sonic managed to use the fight to escape Amy and her team.

Though depressed that Sonic got away, Amy came up with the plan of finding Eggman and thereby finding Sonic. As Team Rose searched for the doctor, Eggman appeared and attacked them with his robot horde, but Team Rose destroyed it. When they reached Rail Canyon, Amy's team-mates picked up on Froggy and Chocola, and they headed to Eggman's base where they met the Egg Albatross which Amy lead her team into battle with to impress Sonic. After the fight, however, Amy discovered to her anger that the Eggman they fought was a copy and Froggy and Chocola were nowhere. With Amy suspecting Eggman was behind Froggy and Chocola's disappearance, Team Rose left to find Eggman to save their friends.

Team Rose's search eventually took them to the jungle where they met Team Chaotix. Amy initially turned Vector down when she thought he was asking for a date, but when Team Chaotix demanded Cheese, the two teams ended up fighting. When Team Rose reached Hang Castle, Amy had to push her team onward when they were scared by their surroundings. After they escaped from Mystic Mansion, Team Rose were met by Eggman and his robot horde, but they still defeated it.

Gonna get you Sonic

Amy chasing after Sonic on the Egg Fleet.

After that, Team Rose traveled to the Egg Fleet to find Eggman's main fleet, the Final Fortress. Once they got there, Team Rose defeated Eggman in his Egg Emperor in a final confrontation. Though their opponent ended up being another fake, they found Chocola and Froggy in its remains and had a happy reunion. No sooner, Amy saw Sonic nearby and quickly chased after him.

Not long after, Team Rose, Sonic, Chaotix and Dark united to see Neo Metal Sonic reveal himself. It turned out that Metal Sonic, who had been impersonating Eggman, was the true kidnapper of Froggy and Chocola and the one staging the teams' adventures so he could copy their data to conquer the world himself. As Neo Metal Sonic transformed into Metal Madness, the real Dr. Eggman saw the teams had collected all the Chaos Emeralds and got the idea of using the Emeralds against Metal Sonic. Amy and her team then volunteered to stall Metal Madness with the others while Team Sonic prepared the Chaos Emeralds. Despite Team Rose's efforts, the robot transformed into Metal Overlord, but Team Super Sonic then arrived and defeated him while Amy watched on. After the battle, Amy resume her chase after Sonic, saying goodbye to her team while doing so.

Shadow the Hedgehog

In Shadow the Hedgehog, Amy joined Sonic and several of her friends in battling the Black Arms, who had begun invading earth, and would try convincing Shadow to join their cause. She appears in Shadow's Hero Missions.

Cryptic Castle

At Cryptic Castle, Amy discovered Cream and Cheese had not returned from the castle and therefore headed out to find them. On her way, she met Shadow and asked for help to look for Cream.

In the Hero scenario, where Shadow accepted Amy's request, Amy and Shadow managed to find both Cream and Cheese. Later, Amy came to Shadow's aid when the hedgehog was attacked by Dr. Eggman and his Egg Breaker. Eventually, the two destroyed Eggman's battle mech and collected one of the Chaos Emeralds.

Last Story

In the last story, Amy, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Rouge and Dr. Eggman found Shadow and tried to stop him from giving the Chaos Emeralds to Black Doom, the Black Arms' leader. Black Doom however, took the Emeralds and used an enhanced Chaos Control to transport the Black Comet to the surface, planning to use humans as energy sources for his kind. Shortly after, Amy and her allies were paralyzed by a special nerve gas and Black Doom unleashed the Death leeches to prey on them. However, it turned out Shadow was immune to the gas and he left Amy and the others behind as he went to stop Black Doom.

Soon after, Amy and the other got out of the Black Comet and found some shelter from where she and the others cheered Super Shadow on as he fought and defeated Devil Doom. After Super Shadow sent the Black Comet back into space and blew it up with the Eclipse Cannon, Amy was positive Shadow had survived when Rouge questioned it, before joining her friends for a laugh as Knuckles furiously chased Eggman around.

Sonic Battle

In Sonic Battle, Amy had moved to Central City. When Amy was out looking for Sonic, she met Tails and Emerl, a Gizoid Sonic had found and Dr. Eggman was after. Amy asked Tails about Emerl, who explained that Emerl was like Sonic's baby project. However, Amy took this statement literally and thought that Sonic was testing her to see if she could handle taking care of a real child. As Tails tried to tell her otherwise, however, Amy snapped back, scaring him off. Alone with Emerl, Amy told him to call her "mommy" with positive results, but then Rouge arrived to steal Emerl for her own purposes. Amy fought Rouge to protect Emerl, but was defeated. After Rouge fled with Emerl, Amy remorsefully told Tails what happened. She then tracked Rouge down twice to take Emerl back by force, but failed each time. When Sonic himself later got Emerl back from Rouge, Amy showed up to smack Rouge some more while promising Sonic she would make a good mother, much to Sonic's confusion.

Despite having Emerl back, her failure to keep Emerl safe made Amy resolve to become stronger to better protect him. As such, she used boxercising to gain strength. However, she began to train excessively when she learned she could also lose weight this way, which she figured would get Sonic to notice her. During her training, Amy would drag Cream and Cheese into helping her.

Later, Amy met Knuckles and Emerl at her apartment, but while she was happy to see Emerl, he hoped Sonic was here to propose. Some time later, Amy resumed her search for Sonic and got Tails to tell where he was. When she found Sonic and Emerl, she berated Sonic for his parenting until him ran away when Emerl made a bad choice of words. However, Amy took this as a test to see if she could protect Emerl from Eggman which she gladly accepted. Soon after though, Amy and Emerl were attacked by E-121 Phis, but they defeated them and took their Emerald Shards. Knowing Emerl developed with each Chaos Emerald he got, Amy figured Sonic would accept her as his wife if she helped Emerl grow with more Emeralds.

Work it out Amy

Amy working out with Emerl and Cream.

Before searching for Emeralds, Amy took Emerl to her apartment to help him practice some fighting moves upon his request. There, Amy met Cream and told about how Emerl was to help her and Sonic raise a family (though Cream doubted it) before working out with all three of them until she collapsed in exhaustion. When Emerl soon after picked up on a Chaos Emerald, Amy went to investigate it with him, but briefly had to fight Chaos Gamma, who Amy mistook for her old rescuer. Arriving in Night Babylon, Amy and Emerl found two more E-121 Phis and destroyed them, allowing them to collect their Emerald Shards.

Tracing the last Emerald Shard to Club "Rouge", Amy and Emerl found Rouge and fought her for the ownership of the shard and eventually made her hand it over. When Rouge warned them that Shadow, who wanted Emerl destroyed, was near, Amy hurried off with Emerl to Tails so he could assemble their Emeralds Shards. Once they got to Tails, the fox formed a whole Chaos Emerald with their shards which Amy then gave to Emerl, allowing him to develop more. Just then, Sonic showed up and Amy told him (somewhat threatning) of how she had helped raise Emerl and that he had no reason not to marry her now. As Sonic then told Amy to close her eyes, Amy expected a kiss from Sonic, but then opened them to see that Sonic was gone. However, Amy just attributed this to his shyness.

A while later, Amy and Cream was left to watch Emerl while Sonic and Tails checked a lead on a Chaos Emerald. While Emerl was helping Amy with her exercises, however, Eggman kidnapped Emerl, Cream and Cheese, though the trio was able to save themselves soon after. Some time afterwards, Amy met Emerl who asked her for a fight so he could face Shadow. Amy accepted and was defeated, but was more concerned about her diet.

Later, Amy came to see Emerl stop Eggman and his Final Egg Blaster onboard the Death Egg through a monitor. When Eggman was defeated, however, Eggman fired the Final Egg Blaster, destroying some stars, causing Emerl to revert to his original programming, which was bend on destruction. However, Eggman could not control Emerl as excepted, and Emerl prepared to fire the Final Egg Blaster at earth. With Sonic the only one capable of stopping Emerl, Amy begged him to do it. When Sonic's original plan to stop Emerl with the Master Emerald failed, however, he had to destroy Emerl. Once it was done, the world was saved, but everyone mourned Emerl's death.

Sonic Rush

In Sonic Rush, Amy was once again on the lookout for Sonic. During her search, Amy met Cream and her new friend Blaze the Cat, and quickly asked Cream if she had seen Sonic, but without luck. Amy was then introduced to Blaze by Cream, but she got a little mad and threaten Cream when she mentioned her shortcomings. After that, Amy greeted Blaze, though she warned her not be looking for Sonic out of affection, before taking off to find him. Eventually, she found Sonic, who tried to ask her where Blaze was. Amy, believing this meant Sonic liked Blaze, was then about to explode with anger, but calmed down once Tails explained the situation. Amy then told them where she was, only for Sonic and Tails to leave her behind.

Sonic Rush Amy

Amy tells Blaze about having friends.

Afterwards, Amy met Cream and Blaze again and told them Sonic was looking for them, but Blaze dismissed that as she did not want Sonic's help for finding the last of her missing Sol Emeralds. Amy, however, insisted she could rely on friends and told her with Cream about how they were all friends now. When Knuckles then arrived to settle an dispute with Blaze, Amy held him back while Cream and Blaze got away.

Some time later, in the aftermath of Sonic and Blaze's final battles with Dr. Eggman and Dr. Eggman Nega, Amy came affectionately towards Sonic to celebrate the victory, but made Sonic run away, leaving Amy to chase him.

Soon after, Amy, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Cream, came to Blaze's aid when Eggman and Eggman Nega drained all her Sol Emeralds of their power to conquer both Sonic's dimension and the Sol Dimension. With Amy and the others' support, Blaze recharged the Sol Emeralds, becoming Burning Blaze, and joined up with Super Sonic as they defeated the doctors and saved both worlds.

Sonic Riders series

Amy Sonic riders

Amy meeting Team Sonic during the Grand Prix.

In Sonic Riders, Amy signed up for Dr. Eggman's EX World Grand Prix to "keep her eye on Sonic," who was also participating along with Team Sonic. After the qualifications rounds, Amy found Sonic and told him why she was participating, much to Sonic's dismay. Amy then heard Tails' explanation surrounding the legends of the Babylon Rogues, an opposing team in the competition working for Eggman, and Babylon Garden, until they met Wave the Swallow who walked by and mocked Tails' Blue Star (and placed a bomb on it). While angry at Wave for this, Amy soon after hurried out to the next race where she faced Wave but was defeated, eliminating Amy from the tournament.

At the the Grand Prix finals, Amy came to cheer Sonic on in hopes of winning by beating Jet. Jet won however, and Amy and the rest witnessed Jet use his winning prize, the seven Chaos Emeralds, in tandem with the Key to Babylon Garden to reveal Babylon Garden itself, intending to claim its treasure. When Eggman then snatched the Key to claim the treasure himself, Amy tried to stop him, but ended up riding the doctor's Egg Mobile to Babylon Garden.

On Babylon Garden, Amy was taken hostage by Eggman. When Sonic then came to stop Eggman, Amy was used as a shield by the doctor to keep Sonic away. However, Sonic created a series of windstorms on his Extreme Gear, which freed Amy from Eggman's grasp. Amy however, was furious at Sonic for endangering her with those moves and cased him around with her Piko Piko Hammer. Her case was interrupted however when they heard a roar and went to check it out. Venturing inside Babylon Garden, Amy and her friends saw the Babylon Rouges had awoken the Babylon Guardian when looking for Treasure of Babylon, and were forced to fight it.

After beating the Babylon Guardian, Amy and the others found the Treasure of Babylon, which turned out to be a Magic Carpet, much to the disappointment of Eggman. With this ordeal over, Amy and her friends departed from the Babylon Rogues for the time being.

Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity

In Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, a few months after the World Grand Prix,[8] Amy was in Botanical Kingdom when she found a mysterious stone. After just picking it up however, she was chased by SCR-HDs, a part of a currently global robot rampage who were after the meteorite. While running away from the robots, Amy found Team Sonic, where she was quick flirt with Sonic before telling her story. With Team Sonic also having such a meteorite and being targeted by the robots too, Amy and her friends decided to head to MeteorTech, the creator of the robots, for answers.

Amy forces Storm Zero Gravity

Amy forcing Storm to help her.

When they got there, Amy and her group were discovered by security. However, the Babylon Rogues then arrived and Jet repelled the security robots with another meteorite and demanded Amy's meteorite, called the Ark of the Cosmos, from her. Amy however, not knowing what it was, did not understand him. When more security robots then showed up and everyone tried to leave, Amy was blocked by Storm who demanded her meteorite, but she hit Storm with her Piko Piko Hammer and ran away. As Storm continued to chase after her to Aquatic Capital however, Amy chose to give up the meteorite by throwing it in his face before forcing him to lead her back to Sonic. During the trip, however, they were ambushed by SCR-HD who blew up when it scanned their Ark of the Cosmos. Amy was then left behind when Storm took SCR-HD's Ark of the Cosmos and ran back home.

Amy remembers Zero Gravity

Amy remembers Gigan Rocks.

Soon after, Amy was reunited with Team Sonic who had looked for her, and she explained what had happened. Knuckles thought the robot rampage would stop now since their leader was gone, but Tails, having learned Dr. Eggman started it by putting an Ark of the Cosmos in MeteoTech’s mother computer, figured it would only stop if they removed the Ark of the Cosmos from the mother computer. As they tried to figure out where the mother computer could be, Amy remembered Storm mentioning Gigan Rocks, a place with information about the Ark of the Cosmos. Under Knuckles' guide, Amy and her friends went there to search for clues.

Arriving at Gigan Rocks, the group discovered from the ruins that the Arks of the Cosmos were power units for Babylon Garden. Amy and her friends then saw the Babylon Rogues chase after Eggman above them, and learned from both that and the ruins the location of MeteoTech’s mother computer. Traveling there, Amy and her group found the Crimson Tower and the Babylon Rogues, who explained Eggman stole their Arks of the Cosmos. Concluding Eggman planned to use them to control all the world's robots for world domination, Amy and her friends raced the Babylon Rogues to Eggman with the Arks of the Cosmos at stake.

At the end of the race, the two groups stopped Eggman's plans, ended the global robot rampage and additionally prevented the reactivated SCR-HD from using the Arks of the Cosmos to create a black hole that could destroy the world. Returning to Monopole with her friends, Amy heard from Tails of how the Arks of the Cosmos made the robots to go amok, and she thought that the tradition of wishing upon a star was started by the ancient Babylonians who hoped shooting stars were the Arks of the Cosmos falling down to earth so they could get back home. No sooner though, Amy and then others saw Jet flying by, who challenged Sonic to a race, which Sonic accepted.

Sonic Free Riders

Amy teams up with Cream and Vector in Sonic Free Riders in order to win the second EX Grand Prix and so she can see Sonic. In the Team Rose story, they must beat three teams in order to win the World Grand Prix. In the end, Amy celebrates her victory and rushes to Sonic, telling him he should go on a date with her because she won, much to Sonic's disgrace.

Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

Amy appears in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) and serves as an ally in Silver the Hedgehog's storyline. In this game, she mistakes Silver as Sonic. Learning that Silver was also looking for Sonic, she tries to enlist his help, not realizing Silver's true intentions on killing Sonic. Upon finding Sonic, Silver battles him and loses, but manages to catch Sonic off-guard afterward, and is able to hit him with a powerful blow, thus gaining the upper hand. However, Amy stops him from delivering the final blow. Amy also saves the damsel-in-distress Princess Elise—as well as Sonic—at one point in the story. She eventually found out that Silver did not kill Sonic and that it was all part of Mephiles' plan to kill Sonic himself.

Amy can be played during the final level, End of the World, where she helps to revive Sonic by collecting one of the Chaos Emeralds. In the end, Solaris has been destroyed by Super Sonic, Super Shadow and Super Silver. Due to Solaris being erased from existence, therefore causing the events of the game to never happen, it is unknown if Amy remembers the events of the game.

Sonic Rivals

In Sonic Rivals, Amy was turned into a card by Dr. Eggman Nega with his special camera. When Eggman Nega later met Sonic and Tails on Onyx Island, the doctor showed Amy's card to Sonic and explained what he had done to her before turning Tails into a card as well, making Sonic set off to save both his friends.[9] When Eggman Nega later escaped to his space station, the doctor planned to use Amy's card, along with some other cards to fuel his special camera as he used it to turn earth into a card, but he was stopped by Sonic, Knuckles, Shadow and Silver. After the battle, Amy was returned to normal by Sonic and she took this as a sign that they were to live happily together. Sonic however, claimed he had to find Eggman Nega’s other card captives and ran off, much to Amy's dismay.

Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

In Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Amy went with Sonic to save Knuckles—and later the world—from Imperator Ix. Early on in the story, Amy claims to Sonic that she has found a new boyfriend called Dexter and tries at many occasions to present him as a great boyfriend, but without going into much detail about him. Depending on the player's choices, Amy will reveal to Sonic that she just made him up in an attempt to make Sonic jealous.

It is revealed in this game that Amy has started a club for young girls to protect themselves from bullies. When the Voxai Overmind brainwashed her, she says "You never pay attention to me". Also, the player can engage in a romantic subplot between Sonic and Amy, which varies based on the player's conversation choices. She is the first unlockable character and the second playable character.

Sonic Unleashed

Amys mistake

Amy meeting Sonic in his Werehog form.

In Sonic Unleashed, Amy once again pursued Sonic. She eventually found him in Spagonia at night where she was quick to hug him. As she took a look at Sonic, however, she could not recognize him due to him being in his Werehog form. Believing him to be a stranger, Amy apologized and ran off, inadvertently depressing Sonic. Not long after, Amy was forced to dance with some people possessed by Dark Gaia's Minions, but was saved by Sonic and Chip, but before Amy could get a look at Sonic, he fled. She soon after met Professor Pickle and had him tell her everything about Sonic. After learning about Sonic's new form, Amy met up with Sonic and told him that he was still him to her despite his look.

From there, Amy followed Sonic, Tails, Chip and Pickle in their mission to restore the earth after Dr. Eggman had broken it apart. While Sonic and Chip were gone on adventures, Amy would help Pickle with his work and await their safe return. When Pickle later moved to his research facility in Shamar, Amy came with. Later, after Sonic and Chip went to fully restore the planet by sealing Dark Gaia, the creature behind the planet's shattering, Amy and Pickle saw the sky turning dark. As Pickle recognized this as Dark Gaia's act to destroy the world and despaired, Amy had unwavering faith that Sonic would save them. As Amy predicted, the world was soon after returned to normal thanks to Sonic and Chip when they defeated Perfect Dark Gaia. With everyone celebrating, Amy shorty listened to Pickle's reflection on the meaning of Light and Dark Gaia before deciding to prepare a "coming home" party for Sonic with Pickle.

Sonic and the Black Knight

In Sonic and the Black Knight, Amy had managed to make a date with Sonic, but when the time came for it, he did not show up. When Amy met Sonic later, he explained he had been on an adventure in the world of Camelot. However, Amy believed Sonic made that up as an excuse for forgetting their date before proceeding to chase after Sonic and attacking him with her Piko Piko Hammer.

Sonic Colors (DS)

Amy appears in the DS version of Sonic Colors as a non-playable character. She is excited to see Sonic again and asks him to complete a mission for her entertainment. When Sonic finishes it, Amy comments that it was "dreamy" and asks Sonic to marry her, causing Sonic to ditch her and leave the problem to Tails. Later, Amy finds Sonic with Big, and asks him to complete one more mission for her. After Sonic is done, Amy decides to have a picnic with him. Amy then screams in joy, saying, "Eating together in an Aquarium! We are so gonna date!" Tails comments on this, explaining that they were in the middle of Eggman's base.

Sonic Generations

In the console/PC version of Sonic Generations, Amy attended and helped prepare Sonic's surprise birthday party. As the party started, however, the Time Eater suddenly appeared, and Amy was then sucked into one of the Time Eater's Time Holes and ended up in the White Space, where she was turned into a statue due to the Time Eater's effects.

Amy in generations

Amy after returning to normal.

Eventually, Amy was returned to normal by Classic Sonic (Sonic's past self) and Modern Sonic (Sonic's present self). When Classic and Modern Sonic confronted the Time Eater, which was revealed to be controlled by Modern Eggman and Classic Eggman, Amy arrived at the battle with the others and cheered on both Sonics, allowing them both to transform into Super Sonic. When the Sonics defeated the Time Eater, Amy and the others were sent back to the present, where Amy knocked Knuckles into a tree for deeming Sonic's performance "half-bad". Continuing the celebration from where it left off, Amy later waved goodbye to Classic Sonic and Classic Tails when they returned to their own time.

Sonic Lost World

In Sonic Lost World, Amy remained behind with Knuckles to look after some animals while Sonic and Tails went to free the other animals Dr. Eggman had captured. While waiting, Amy contacted Sonic, who reported they only rescued one capsule of animals, and she pleaded to him to save the others.

Amy in Lost World v2

Amy watching the life being sucked out of the world.

When the Deadly Six took control of Eggman's Extractor and began draining the Life Energy out of earth, Amy contacted Sonic and Tails and reported about this phenomenon. Eventually, Amy herself became drained of her energy to the point where her death seemed imminent. Contacting Sonic, Amy told him it was too late for them, and urged him to save the world as their transmission got cut out. Fortunately, she and everyone else were saved when Sonic and Tails got the Extractor to return the stolen energy. Following the world's restoration, Amy welcomed Sonic and Tails back when they arrived, before coming over to Sonic when he tried to take a nap.

Appearances in Other Media

Comics

Sonic Adventures

AmySonicAdventures

Amy from the cover of Sonic Adventures Vol. 1.

Sonic Adventures was a two-volume, French-made comic book published by Sirène, that was released in 1994. Amy appears in the first volume—"Sonic Adventures: Dans Les Griffes De Robotnik"—being kidnapped by Robotnik as bait to get Sonic. This version of Amy has the same design as in Sonic the Hedgehog CD.

Sonic the Comic

Amy's appearance in Sonic the Comic.

Amy has appeared in the UK publication Sonic the Comic, in which she was a level-headed and pragmatic member of the Freedom Fighters—when she was not claiming to be Sonic's girlfriend. She also became the leader of the team while Sonic was trapped in the Special Zone. She was close friends with Tekno the Canary, and she used a crossbow in battle—rather than the Piko Piko Hammer that eventually became her trademark in the games.

Archie Comics

Main article: Amy Rose (Archie)
265px-Amy Rose

Amy's appearance in the Archie Comics.

In the Sonic the Hedgehog comics by Archie Comics, Amy is from the country of Mercia and has a cousin named Rob O' the Hedge. As in other continuities, she has a crush on Sonic.

In her earliest appearances, she attempted to become a member of the Freedom Fighters, but was rejected frequently because of her young age. She then made herself older by wishing on the Ring of Acorns, but was still denied by Sally since she still had the mind of a younger girl. Eventually, however, Amy did advance enough to be accepted as a Freedom Fighter, and became an important member of the team.

Sonic X (comics)

Amy Rose's role in the Sonic X comic is similar to hers in the Sonic X anime. In the comic book version, her relationship with Sonic is developed more closely, with Sonic even taking her on a date for Valentine's Day, although this was due to him having lost a bet with Knuckles. He seemed to enjoy himself, however, when Amy asked him if he would ever take her on a date again, Sonic answered "Er... Maybe?"

Television Series

Sonic X

Main article: Amy Rose (Sonic X)
011amy

Amy in Sonic X anime.

Amy is one of the main characters in Sonic X, an anime series which is the most recent of the Sonic the Hedgehog TV shows. This is her first appearance in a Sonic TV series, as she did not appear in any of the other three American-produced series.

In Sonic X, Amy is Sonic's self-proclaimed girlfriend. Much the same as in the game series, her long-term goal is to get him to notice, love and respect her. She gets mad at Sonic's impatience and aloof attitude, which occasionally are so bad that she is driven to violence. However, she really does care about him and does not want him to get hurt. Likewise, Sonic seems closer and more comfortable with Amy in the anime, even going so far as to bring her a white rose and say he loves for her in one episode. Amy also has romantic daydreams about her and Sonic. Overall, her personality is more temperamental, bossy, annoying and stubborn than in the games; she may threaten or even harm her friends for things they had nothing to do with, but she still has the same kind heart that she possesses in the games.

Sonic Boom

Main article: Amy Rose (Sonic Boom)
Sonic Boom Amy

Amy as she appears in Sonic Boom.

Amy will appear as one of the main characters in the new upcoming CGI animated TV series Sonic Boom, which will air in Fall 2014.

Personality

Amy profile SG

Amy's profile in Sonic Generations.

Amy in the main series is presented as being somewhat kind and girly. In Sonic CD, she was referred to as an "optimistic tomboy" who loves fortunes and uses tarot cards. Because of her tomboyish nature, she became a playable character as a fighter in Sonic the Fighters. However, after Sonic Adventure, Amy had grown a more feminine personality, such as an interest in shopping and fashion, but that did not remove her tomboyish nature. However, in the later games, she has the personality of a girly-girl more so than a tomboy unlike the earlier games. In the more recent games, Amy has become a bit more obsessive and far more aggressive, much to Sonic's dismay. She often shows her anger by pulling out her Piko Piko Hammer out of Hammerspace, sometimes threatening Sonic with it.

In Sonic Battle, her attraction towards "Boxercise" plays to both elements of her ever-changing personality: the exercise helping her lose weight to maintain her girlish figure, and the boxing to help her train when she's forced to fight. In Sonic Battle, she had shown a very powerful and aggressive attitude, willing to fight whenever necessary.

Despite her aggressive tendencies, Amy has a good heart, never gives up, and is one of the most optimistic and cheerful characters. Amy is always full of hope and is always cheering on for the good side of things. She almost never seems to find anything hopeless, as shown in Sonic Adventure, where she was determined to help the Flicky who had lost his family.

In Sonic Adventure 2, Amy felt strongly that there was a chance for the world to be saved and that people were basically good (as she told Shadow). Amy is often a likable person she has rarely met anyone who she did not befriend (including Shadow and Blaze). Amy is a cheerful and caring individual, with a positive outlook on life, and an over sweeping infatuation for Sonic.

Since 2010, after the release of Sonic Free Riders, Amy seems to be more bossy and infatuated with Sonic than before. This is most likely due to the more light and humorous nature of recent Sonic games. Amy's personality has added more a humorous factor in games like Sonic Colors, Sonic Free Riders, and Sonic Generations with her obsession for Sonic, which causes her to say silly and embarrassing things.

Powers and Abilities

Physical Abilities

In terms of physical attributes, Amy is not exactly gifted with superhuman abilities as other characters in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. However, she does possess above average physical capabilities, making her a powerful character in her own right.

While not strictly superhuman, Amy has high physical strength. She is able to wield her Piko Piko Hammer, which appears to weigh quite a bit, with little effort, and can swing it around with enough force to smash clean through metal and send enemies sky rocketing. She even has enough strength to swing her Piko Piko Hammer around so fast that she can ascend into the air like a helicopter rotor or generate shock waves and whirlwinds by either swinging it or hammering into the ground. She can as well provide enough force with her Piko Piko Hammer to send herself into the air by hammering it into the ground. On top of that, in Sonic Generations, when Amy accidentally hits Knuckles, she sends him flying into a nearby tree without even noticing.

Like most characters in the Sonic the Hedgehog series, Amy is capable of running at super speeds, which is developed from her practice chasing after Sonic and her innate hedgehog abilities.[11][12] While her exact top speed is unclear, she can run fast enough to even keep Sonic on a constant lookout for her, suggesting Amy has remarkably high running speed. However, Amy has admitted herself that she is not as fast as Sonic is.[13]

Amy has as well good acrobatic skills and agility, being able to handle and swing her large Piko Piko Hammer gracefully and without disturbing her when airborne, perform various forms of movements and tricks when launched into midair, and grind on rails with ease.

Combat Skills

Amy is a tough fighter, and combined with her aggressiveness when provoked, she can be a fierce opponent in a confrontation. Though she has not received much training in martial arts, reminiscing more of exercises, Amy knows how to defend herself against, and can go up against powerful robots and even highly trained combatants such as the Nocturnus Clan soldiers.

Fighting Style

Amyspin

Amy attacks using her Piko Piko Hammer.

Amy's fighting style is heavily based on the usage of her Piko Piko Hammer. In battle, she uses her Piko Piko Hammer's size and durability to her advantage, either using it to knock opponents far away through midair or bringing the entirety of its weight down on the opponents, crushing them with devastating force. For more offensive or effective moves, Amy will swirl around with her Piko Piko Hammer, turning herself into a spinning top that mows down everything she touches or even stir up whirlwinds and shock waves to send opponents flying, though such maneuvers can leave her dizzy.

Despite preferring to use her Piko Piko Hammer when fighting enemies, Amy can as well fight opponents hand-to-hand in direct combat, though she rarely resorts to this method. As seen in Sonic Battle, when fighting opponents close up, Amy will resort to kickboxing moves, using fast jabs and uppercuts.

Techniques and Moves

Amy has one of the widest ranges of moves and techniques in the Sonic the Hedgehog series, ranging from techniques involving her Piko Piko Hammer, to the basic Spin Attack maneuvers, to even mimicries of other characters' moves.

Most of Amy's offensive techniques revolves around the variants of her primary technique, the Hammer Attack, a downward swing with her Piko Piko Hammer on opponents. These variants serve to compensate for Amy's lack of superior physical skills and moves. Her Jump Attack lets her swing her Piko Piko Hammer in midair to attack enemies while airborne with increased attack range, and her Spin Hammer Attack and Hammer Whirl lets her spin around with her Piko Piko Hammer to attack with increased attack range. For better movements, Amy can use her Hammer Jump and Mid-Air Hammer Jump techniques to let her somersault higher into the air by setting off with her Piko Piko Hammer from where she is positioned, and with her Propeller Hammer she can float through the air like a helicopter for a short while.

Some of Amy's more special moves include her Tornado Hammer where she throws a whirlwind at opponents to blow them off the ground, and the Rose Typhoon where she creates a dome-like shock wave by hammering into the ground. While she sometimes lacks it, Amy can also perform the various forms of the Spin Attack, which is a variation on the tendency for hedgehogs to roll into tight balls for protection. The Homing Attack allows Amy to jump and home in on an enemy to get over large gaps she cannot normally reach, the Spin Jump lets her curl into a ball to attack opponent by landing on them, and the Spin Dash lets her shoot herself forward as an acceleration roll at high speeds to break barriers or mow down enemies.

Miscellaneous Skills

Amy has on several occasions proved to possess excellent tracking and searching skills, especially when she is looking for Sonic. As demonstrated during her searches for Sonic, Amy is able to, through a mix of dowsing and just plain searching, locate the general area of the person that she is looking for, no matter where in the world it is. In fact, at least in Sonic's case, Amy is able to "feel" that the person she is looking has been in a certain location. Amy's tracking skills are further enforced in Sonic Rush, where Cream told Blaze that Amy was sure to find Sonic for them.

Amy has as well displayed some skills in the mystical field, primarily in reading tarot cards. Using her tarot cards, Amy is able to predict the future and give herself knowledge of future events, such as successfully predicting where Sonic would be in Sonic the Hedgehog CD and Sonic Battle, and even curse others.

In Sonic the Fighters, Amy demonstrated the ability to harness Chaos Energy from the Chaos Emeralds, allowing her to enter the Hyper Mode.

Though not necessarily a special skill or ability, Amy's positive outlook and attitude gives her the ability to convince even the most cold-hearted and cruel people into giving up on their evil ways through genuinely heart-spoken speeches, as seen in the cases of Shadow the Hedgehog and E-102 Gamma.

In the Sonic Riders series, Amy has steadily proven herself as a very talented Extreme Gear rider. Though she did not make it to the finals during the first EX World Grand Prix in Sonic Riders, she had at the time of the Grand Prix in Sonic Free Riders become so skilled at riding Extreme Gear that she was able compete against even the world's best Extreme Gear riders. While riding on an Extreme Gear, Amy is skillful enough to ride on rails, focus on opponents while remaining in control of her Extreme Gear, and as well pulls off highly advanced tricks and techniques on her Extreme Gear while in midair.

Weapons

Piko Piko Hammer

Main article: Piko Piko Hammer

Amy's trademark weapon is the Piko Piko Hammer, a large and durable hammer that she is able to call out from nowhere at will, and is Amy's preferred means of offense. Though simple in function, Amy can wield the Piko Piko Hammer with incredible proficiency. While mostly used in melee combat in various ways, Amy can use it in several other ways, such as executing better movement, perform long-ranged attacks, or even have it mimic the variants of the Spin Attack. Even powerful figures such as Sonic and Knuckles get worried and even afraid when Amy pulls out her Piko Piko Hammer, hinting the danger that this weapon poses when in her hands.

Relationships

Sonic the Hedgehog

Amy Rose believes that being together with Sonic the Hedgehog is her destiny as foretold by her initial tarot card reading, and has indeed fallen madly in love with the blue hero since her fateful rescue in Sonic the Hedgehog CD. While Sonic appears annoyed by her affections, her infatuation was renewed upon meeting him once again in Sonic Adventure, where she resolved to become more independent to win over Sonic's heart by the end of her tale. Even though he seems nervous and occasionally overwhelmed by her advances, Sonic at least considers Amy a good friend and worthy comrade, and is always there to help her out should the need arise. Sonic's emotional neglect for the most part does not seem to hurt or deter Amy; rather, she continues to treat him as if he is hiding his feelings behind a facade, which has occasionally been implied to be the case (such as in the Sonic Heroes manual). As of Sonic Heroes, Amy's Sonic-chasing tendencies were particularly aggressive and hyperactively over the top for a while, which put off Sonic and only caused him to run away. Having developed a more mellow approach in recent years, the relationship between the two has become less defined and may even be interpreted as a serious on-off interest, although she is still identified as Sonic's "self-proclaimed" girlfriend and they do not currently make an official couple.

In Sonic Battle, Amy obsesses with "Boxercise" as part of her arduous physical training to impress Sonic with her adamant dedication, which mildly works but also worries him. In Amy's story, she asks Tails about Emerl, and Tails explains that Emerl is like a child to Sonic. Amy takes this literally and thinks that Sonic wants her to be Emerl's mother. Amy then takes Emerl away and tells him to call her his mother, thus making Emerl believe that Amy is actually his mother figure. During her story she tries hard to protect Emerl after losing him to Rouge. At the end of her story, Amy tries to get Sonic to propose to her, but he promptly shivers at the thought and bails.

In Sonic Riders, Amy enters the EX World Grand Prix so she can be beside Sonic, though she becomes mad when Sonic accidentally launches her into a tornado when he had to save her from Dr. Eggman and forgot about her. After getting caught in the tornado, she chases Sonic with her Piko Piko Hammer as payback for forgetting about her.

In Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Amy's time is spent mostly trying to find Sonic. She teams up with Silver in order to find him, though when she finds out that he is trying to kill him, she ditches him, saying that she would choose Sonic over the entire world. In Sonic's story, one of the mandatory Town Missions is the Test of Love, which has the player (as Sonic) choose whether his feelings truly lie with Amy or Princess Elise. Sonic must choose one of these girls to progress, although it is never mentioned again and neither character knows of or reacts to this choice. Later on during the Last Story, nearly every important character gets sent to a time-space rift. They all see that Sonic is dead, and Amy reacts to this by kneeling down and crying into her hands. Oddly enough, when Elise performs the infamous kiss when she revives him as Super Sonic with the Chaos Emeralds, Amy does not appear to think twice about it.

In Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Amy insecurely claims she finally made a legitimate boyfriend named Dexter during Sonic's long two-year absence, but unusually does not appear to have any wild schemes to get Sonic to accept her. Through dialog trees, the player can decide the extent of Sonic's interaction with her, as well as whether his exchanges are positive, negative or neutral in nature. If he treats Amy with high regard and respect, an additional scene may occur on the Kron Colony near the end of the game where she pulls Sonic aside for a moment, wondering why he has been so nice to her after such an empty gap of time has passed. There are multiple choice outcomes to this scene, from Sonic making it clear once and for all that he cannot be romantically invested in her to him actually admitting that he does return her feelings in some way but promising they can figure out what this means after they get home. If this breakthrough occurs, Amy will reveal that Dexter is fake to her potential boyfriend.

In Sonic Unleashed, Sonic seemed depressed when Amy did not recognize him as a Werehog, understanding that he is not the same at all in his Werehog form when Chip pointed it out. When she finds out the Werehog was Sonic, she wanted to know all about how it happened, and had even mentioned that, though Sonic looks better in the day time, she does not care about that. Near the end of the 360/PS3 version, she asks Sonic out on a date when she is spoken to, and the player can choose whether Sonic accepts or declines it. If rejected, she will think she earned the opportunity and get a little upset at Sonic's decision, but otherwise she will tell Sonic to hurry up and stop Eggman while she excitedly plans it.

In Sonic and the Black Knight's ending, Sonic is shown explaining to Amy all about his adventure in the Arthurian Legend. Amy does not believe him and accuses, "That's the lamest excuse ever! You just forgot about our date!" Acknowledging his missed date, Sonic calmly tries to reason with her by swearing that his story is completely factual, but Amy does not listen and apparently pulls out her hammer.

In the DS version of Sonic Colors, Amy tries to have a romantic picnic with Sonic at first; however, Sonic is too busy and does not want to make the picnic look like a date. Later on, with Big and Tails around, he does agree since he is hungry and it does not look like a date. Amy also gives Sonic a mission, because he looks "dreamy" when he performs his tricks in stages.

In Sonic Generations, Amy is excited to attend Sonic's birthday. However Sonic keeps Amy away from getting too close to him (such as hugging him) by placing his hand over her face. If Classic Sonic rescues Amy, she mistakes him for the present form of Sonic and questions how he looks so young, whereas if the present Sonic saves Amy, she tells Sonic that she was afraid that she would never be able to flirt with him again, leaving Sonic wordlessly exasperated. If Sonic gets an S rank in Chemical Plant, Amy will compliment that Sonic "knows how to get the girls", and when attaining a Red Star Ring, Amy says that she mistook the ring for an actual ring, meaning that she thought Sonic was giving her a ring as a gift or for another reason.

In Sonic Lost World, Amy's personality was further matured compared to previous appearances, showing a more nurturing and understanding side. She first appears with a group of animals, comforting them with Knuckles. She then calls Sonic to check on how he is doing with rescuing Flickies. The third time she communicates with Sonic, she solemnly tells him that it was too late for her and Knuckles and the planet's energy is leaving them, and she tries to tell Sonic that she loves him before the signal dies, much to Sonic's shock. In the end, they are revealed to be okay, and Sonic pleasantly joins them for a relaxing nap in the open meadow.

A running gag involves Amy making her entrance in a game by running into another hedgehog from the left of the screen and hugging them from behind, mistaking them for Sonic despite looking nothing alike up close.

Cream the Rabbit

Since Sonic Heroes, Cream and Amy share a sister-like relationship, comparable to Sonic and Tails' brother-like friendship. This fact is strengthened by Sonic Advance 3, as when they are paired together, they are given the title "Team Jubilee" and serve as a female counterpart to Sonic and Tails' "Unbreakable Bond." The two are portrayed as best friends and also seem to frequent together almost completely throughout Sonic Battle, except when Emerl drags one of them away. Amy is also seen searching for Cream during the level Cryptic Castle in Shadow the Hedgehog, which further suggests how much she cares for her. Another suggestion is in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. when you go to recruit Cream she says "You poor thing! What are you doing out here?".

In Sonic Rush, it is implied that Amy occasionally gets angry with Cream, angry enough to chase her with her hammer as Cream shouted "Not again!" after she said that Amy was "shortsighted" in the regard of her love of Sonic when Cream introduced Blaze to Amy.

The two team up twice in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood for the moves Spin Cycle, the equivalent of Sonic and Tails' Blue Bomber move in which Cream lifts Amy up and sends her spinning into one enemy, as well damaging adjacent ones. Team Rose band together to perform Flower Power, their most potent attack in this game which involves Amy bouncing off Big with a boost from Cream and landing on a foe hammer-first.

In recent games such as Sonic Unleashed, Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations, Amy seems to be distancing herself from Cream. She is often seen around other characters, such as Blaze, but she still remains close to Amy in Sonic Free Riders, but not quite as a sidekick.

Big the Cat

Big the Cat acts as an older brother figure to Amy and is most likely her other best friend. They form Team Rose and fight together in Sonic Heroes. In Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood after meeting Big in the Mystic Ruins, Big states that he "heard his good friend Amy Rose" so he rushed over to see if it was really her. When Big sees Amy he becomes ecstatic and actually makes an attempt to hug her (in which Amy refuses due to the fact that he smelled from the gases in the ruins). Also, if you agree to let Big join your party he, again, becomes happy that he gets to be around Amy.

Miles "Tails" Prower

Tails and Amy rarely interact with each other. In games like Sonic Battle and Sonic Free Riders, Tails tries helping Sonic get away from Amy.

In Sonic Battle, he mistakenly tells Amy that Sonic is treating Emerl like a son which lead her to believe that Sonic wants her to be Emerl's mother.

In Sonic Riders, Amy is defensive of Tails when Wave makes fun of him.

Knuckles the Echidna

Amy has only been seen interacting with Knuckles the Echidna on rare occasions.

In Sonic Heroes when playing as Team Sonic; at the beginning of the fight against Team Rose, Knuckles will taunt Sonic about Amy saying, "Have you been messing with that girl's heart again Sonic?"

In Sonic Rush, Amy stops Knuckles from starting a fight with Blaze.

In Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, Amy budges in Knuckles' sentence in the end, annoying the echidna. However Knuckles is also seen protecting Amy and pulls her away out of danger in the MeteorTech Premises.

In Sonic Generations, Amy accidentally hurts Knuckles with a great force (which causes him to crash into a tree) after he said that Sonic "wasn't half bad", whereas she thought he was "all great". However, Amy does not notice how hard she hit Knuckles because she was busy swooning at Sonic.

In Sonic Lost World, they work separately from Sonic and Tails in saving the animals from Dr. Eggman.

Shadow the Hedgehog

In Sonic Adventure 2, they interact twice. Amy first meets Shadow when she mistakes him for Sonic and hugs him from behind. When Amy senses the lack of a reaction, she releases him, causing him to glance back at her. Amy demands his name when she realizes that he is not Sonic, but he continues to watch her quietly. After Amy notices Dr. Eggman, she also realizes the mistake she's made, and runs off screaming. During this, Shadow takes a step after her, but Dr. Eggman stops him.

Later in the game aboard the ARK, Amy meets Shadow again and this time does her part in helping by begging Shadow to save the world. At first, Shadow simply replies, strangely in a non-threatening way, that it is pointless, but then Amy points out that despite people sometimes being selfish, they were still inwardly good and that saving them was right. Shadow suddenly has a flashback of Maria begging Shadow to make people happy. Shadow then comes to his senses he goes off to fight the Biolizard, telling Amy that he has to keep his promise to Maria and her.

Amy was also the only one to see Shadow's tear after he remembered Maria Robotnik's promise, making her the only person to see him cry in Sonic Adventure 2. Amy and Maria have the same insight towards humanity, thus this might be one of the reasons Shadow is nice to her, since it's unknown whether or not Shadow remembers Amy's deed in ARK.

During Sonic Battle, Amy is angered by Rouge, who was not answering her question as to why Shadow is in her house.

During Shadow the Hedgehog, Shadow can choose to assist Amy Rose in helping find Cream and have her fight alongside the player in the boss battle. Regardless, at the end of stage, Shadow benevolently advises, "If you wanna stay clear of trouble, then stay away from that Doctor." In the final ending, Amy shows an amount of faith and admiration for Shadow, regardless of anything bad that may have happened.

Vector the Crocodile

Amy and Vector encountered each other in Sonic Heroes. When the Chaotix saw Team Rose, Vector wanted to ask Amy a question, however her rude response caused the teams to fight.

The next time the two were seen together was in Sonic Free Riders. Vector joined Amy's team along with Cream to win the prize money Eggman advertised about his Grand Prix. Vector and Amy do not seem to get along. At first, Amy blames Vector for not getting them registered for the race even when he claimed that it was not his fault as she invited him to her team 30 minutes ago. Also, when Amy pretends that she was not expecting her and Sonic in the Grand Prix (because she wanted to prove that "lovers" are drawn together), Vector disapproves her by calling her a "terrible actress". Amy also appears to yell at Vector and boss him around, something she does not do to Cream throughout the game, even though Cream is also a member of the team.

Reception

A Games Radar article called Amy's introduction "the only bitter taste" in Sonic CD, but added that she's "just a pink hedgehog here and not a whiny, annoying brat like in Sonic Adventure." [14] In an IGN article entitled "Smash It Up", Lucas M Thomas stated that "one of the coolest things about Amy Rose's character is her enormous, walloping hammer" that is often used for comedy in the series. [15]

Amy is overall very well received by fans, and is considered to be one of the series "Top 10" characters, as evidenced by popularity polls. She has tied with Knuckles for fourth place being the most popular female over all.[citation needed] Amy is so far one of the only females to have a figure made by Jazwares, with the other figures being Wave the Swallow and Blaze the Cat.

Trivia

  • Amy was described to be eight years old in Sonic the Hedgehog CD, but from Sonic Adventure onward she has grown by four years.
  • In the Sega CD release of Sonic CD in America, Amy was referred to as "Princess Sally" in the game manual, possibly to connect her to the Sonic animated television series released that same year. However, the Sally that showed up in the cartoons was not Amy. Subsequent re-releases of Sonic CD jettison any references to Amy being named Sally. Interestingly, she was clearly stated as "Amy" in the earlier European manual for Sonic CD.
Sonicriders58slugdrones

The original designs for Sonic Riders.

  • Amy's concept outfit for Sonic Riders appears to give her pink fingers, although her gloves may have been fur-colored rather than fingerless.
  • Amy has always called her Piko Piko Hammer just "my hammer", but in her co-op mission in Sonic Generations, she calls it "my Piko Piko Hammer", this being the first time she has called it by its full name, as well as the first time it has ever been called its full name correctly. (In Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing the Announcer calls it "The Piko Hammer".)
  • Amy's bio in the Codex of Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood calls her Amy Rose the Hedgehog.
  • Also in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Amy has three lashes instead of two on some sprites during cutscenes.
  • Amy was the first female character introduced in the game series as well as the only female hedgehog of the series.
  • In Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Amy is the strongest character in terms of Smash ability, being the only character who can reach Level 3. (Knuckles and E-123 Omega can only reach Level 2 Smash ability.)
  • Amy Rose is the only member of Team Rose that is affected by the brainwashing of the Overmind Voxai in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood.
  • In Sonic R, Amy is one of two characters who races in a vehicle rather than on foot. The other is Doctor Robotnik.
  • If Sonic the Fighters is to be believed, Amy Rose did not wear panties in the classic era - harmless pink fur covers her body underneath her skirt. This was not changed in the HD release.
  • In Sonic Riders, Amy sports a different, racing outfit throughout the game, but in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, Amy wears her usual dress in the story cutscenes and in the story level where she races Storm. However, in the Single and Multiplayer modes, she wears the same outfit that she wore in Sonic Riders.
  • Amy is the only playable character in Sonic '06 to not travel to the future nor the past at any time during the game.
  • Amy is the only character that appeared in Sonic Rivals that did not appear in Sonic Rivals 2.

Amy french guide

Amy in the French guide of Sonic & Knuckles

  • Amy's hair has grown slightly longer in recent games. The back side of her hair was noticeably shorter than the hair at the side of her face in Sonic Adventure but that part of the hair has been longer since Sonic Unleashed.
  • In the DS version of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, Amy's character and vehicle selection picture shows her car with ears and head mirrors. However, while racing as her, they are not shown.
  • Strangely, Amy appears in the French guide for Sonic & Knuckles, even though she makes no appearance whatsoever in the game. In that guide, it was said that Amy had been kidnapped by Knuckles.

  • All of the cars Amy has driven in racing games have been old-fashioned convertibles, similar to how Sonic has driven sports cars and how Knuckles drives off-roaders.
  • Amy's last name, Rose, can be considered a play on words. A rose is a flower that is connected with love, which can be related to her crush on Sonic. It is also a play on her color, because in French, rose translates to pink, her fur color. Her first name, Amy, could also be derived from the Japanese word ame, meaning candy, related to Amy's cute personality, but also rain, which can be related to her quick changing temper and power when she's angry. It is also be derived from the French name Aimée which means beloved which also fits with her connection to love.
  • In the Mario & Sonic series, Amy is the only playable female character who is not a princess.

  • Amy and Sonic are the two hedgehogs without fur on their arms, while Shadow and Silver have fur on theirs.
  • Amy appears to be slow in her Twinkle Circuit cart in Sonic Adventure, likely because her speed was not established until later. She also does not weigh a lot, as seen by how high her car floats over the track compared to the others.
  • Amy is the only game character confirmed to use magic outside of the Storybook series.
  • In Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- 2nd, another SEGA video game, Amy's iconic Piko Piko Hammer is an unlockable item for Kagamine Rin, where it is Rin's favorite item.
