Concept and Creation
For the tone of Sonic Boom, Big Red Button Entertainment aimed for Amy to appear as a more "capable" character who would be appealing on her own and make her rise up from being one of the subordinate characters she tends to be in other games. As such, her design was made more "agile and graceful" to make her a strong, able-bodied female character, allowing her to perform difficult physical tasks and make them look easy.
In terms of size, Amy is shorter than Sonic, but taller than Tails. She is also the thinnest of the group. Compared to her appearances in other media, Amy is wearing a red one piece top with a Sarashi around her waist with larger rings and purple tape on her wrist as well as purple stockings over her shoes.
Amy is smart, independent, strong, and confident. She is a natural leader and organizer but can get bossy to everyone around her, though it is just because she knows what others want before they do. She is sweet and has ballerina-like gracefulness, but is also a capable and tough cookie. She is (most of the time) the sensible member of her group of friends.
Powers and Abilities
Amy possesses a high level of agility and acrobatic skills which let her do physical feats that would normally be difficult for someone else, such as landing safely from a large fall where Sonic, Tails and Knuckles failed to, and doing so with fluidity and grace. She is also a capable combatant and can hold her own in battle.
Besides physical strengths, Amy is a history buff who has studied the legends and lore of her mysterious world and has useful knowledge of the ancient areas that she explores with her friends.
Piko Piko Hammer
Amy's only known weapon is the Piko Piko Hammer, a large hammer that she uses for melee combat and acrobatic stunts. She is very powerful, graceful and fluid with it when swinging it around.

Appearances in Other Media
Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric/Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal
Amy also appears in the video games Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal. The games serve as a prequel to the TV series, where Amy and her friends Sonic, Tails and Knuckles come to a unknown island to battle an ancient evil named Lyric the Last Ancient. Amy is one of the four playable characters in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, where uses her Piko Piko Hammer to either fight enemies using attacks reminiscing the Spin Hammer Attack or to swing on poles. She also has a triple jump, enabling her to jump much higher than her teammates.
In Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, she is captured by Lyric, who plots to use her to find the crystal shards due to her archaeological knowledge.
