Moves and techniques

Amy Rose is one of the main characters in the Sonic Boom series. She is an anthropomorphic pink hedgehog and serves as Team Sonic's organizer, archaeologist and backbone.[4][5]

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.[6][7]

Amy's clothes were adjusted to make her seem more like the adventuring type and emphasize her great combat skills with her piko hammer, unlike her main series counterpart.[8]

Appearance

Amy is virtually identical to her main series counterpart, except that she appears slightly taller and thinner. For attire, Amy wears both her trademark red hairband and a red one piece top with a white collar, yellow buttons on the her left side and a lavender sarashi around her waist. She also wears white gloves with purple sports tape and golden ring bracelets around her wrists, purple stockings, and red-violet shoes with pink soles and toes, gray straps and pink plate with two yellow buttons on top. She appears to lack undergarments.

History

Games

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

In Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, Amy was out foiling another one of Dr. Eggman's evil plans with Sonic, Tails and Knuckles and eventually arrived on an new island. There, they find an ancient tomb sealed deep within the island where Amy and her friends come across a powerful villain from the Ancients named Lyric, who plans to power his army of war mongering robots with the Chaos Crystals to destroy everything organic and create a world of twisted metal and robots. To stop Lyric, Amy and her team have to work together and find the Chaos Crystals before Lyric.

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal

In Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, Amy discovered a secret ancient language and manuscript detailing the history and whereabouts of a lost crystal of unlimited power. While taking a break from her research, she rescued Sticks from a rockslide with Sonic Tails and Knuckles. Ignoring Sticks' claims that an underground army would rise to destroy them, Amy returned to her research in some ruins with Knuckles, who she had stand guard outside. As she investigated the ruins, she met Lyric who wanted her knowledge to find the lost crystal and its power. Following the fight with Lyric, Amy contacted Sonic, only to be knocked out by Lyric with a device he put on her.

TV series

When Sonic held try-outs for a new sidekick, Amy was one of the first contenders, but was dismissed by Sonic. Later on, as she demanded a callback, she met Knuckles who had trouble with his own sidekick. This inspired Amy to become his sidekick.[9] During a visit to Tails' house, Amy and her friends learned that Sonic and Tails housed Dr. Eggman, Orbot and Cubot while their lair underwent repairs. Sympathizing with Eggman, Amy convinced Sonic and Tails to give Eggman a chance when they were getting tired of him. The next day however, where Eggman had kept Sonic and Tails up all night, Eggman revealed to Amy and the rest that he lied about his lair so he could exhaust Sonic and Tails, and summoned Obliteratorbot to destroy Team Sonic. However, the robot misheard Eggman and instead attacked his lair. Accepting to help Eggman, Amy, Knuckles and Sticks distracted Obliteratorbot while the others reached its kill switches, though they were too late to save the lair.[10]

As Amy, Sonic, Knuckles and Sticks relaxed on the beach, Tails showed them his universal translator UT. However, UT created tension between Amy and the others by translating their private thoughts from the subtext of their speech. When Tails and UT returned the next day though, UT "translated" their comments into insults. However, as they were at each others' throats, Tails discovered this UT was a fake send by Eggman to tear them apart. While Tails went to save the real UT, Amy and the rest stayed, not thinking UT was worth saving. Later, UT returned to them where it gave a message from Tails and translated it into a call to rescue him from Eggman. Coming to the lair, Knuckles and his friends freed Tails and beat Eggman's Mega. While Amy had found peace with UT, Sticks quickly threw it into the sea.[11]

When Team Sonic saved the village from Eggman's Anti-fire Bot, Amy and the team noticed Sticks' ill treatment of animals and convinced her to get a pet to learn about compassion. However, to their repulsiveness, Sticks chose a disgusting robo-dog named Buster. Over the next week, Buster was an annoyance to Amy and the rest which culminated in Buster keeping them from stopping a robbery made by Orbot and Cubot. Fed up, Amy and her team tried making Sticks give up Buster when Eggman appeared with a gift for Buster. As Eggman told them he made Buster, his gift turned Buster into a colossal robot that grabbed Amy and the others. However, they were freed when Sticks assumed control over Buster, who then rid of Eggman. The team then said goodbye to Buster when Sticks released him due to his dangerous nature.[12]

While Team Sonic visited the village as it was being bombarded by meteors, Sticks saved them using her own defense system. Shortly after, Tails and the others heard from Sticks that she had been nominated for an Awardy Award, but refused to go to its associated gala because she would embarrass herself. However, Amy promised to teach Sticks to be a proper lady, and despite some trouble, she taught her the basics. At the gala, Amy discovered Eggman was a nominee as well (by cheating). When Eggman did not receive the award and retaliated, Amy and her friends tried to fight the doctor and his robots, but got incapacitated. Fortunately, Amy was freed by Sticks when she dropped her lady-behavior and her team got rid of Eggman. Amy congratulated Sticks who accepted her request to teach her how to listen to her instincts.[13]

When preparing lunch, Amy tried to give it a unique design, but when Sonic, Tails and Knuckles did not follow her instructions, she felt she was unappreciated. Eggman then showed and offered Amy the job to redecorate his lair for Modern Lair Magazine. Feeling acknowledged, Amy accepted the offer despite her friends' warnings. At the lair, Amy got to work, and despite some doubt from Eggman, the messenger from the magazine loved her work and promised the lair a spot in their issue. However, when Eggman took the credit, Amy tried to leave only to be caught in a cage by Eggman so she could keep working for him. Fortunately, Amy's team came her rescue her she made amends with them. Team Sonic then trashed Eggman's lair and his robots on their way out, which cost Eggman his place in Modern Lair Magazine, and Amy was cheered up by Sonic by being allowed to redecorate his shack.[14] Amy later accompanied Sonic to Meh Burger for lunch, but their meal got delayed thanks to Eggman and the cashier, Dave.[15]

During a visit to Sonic's shack, Amy found some cookies she thought was for her. However, it was actually Evil Cookies from Eggman that turned Amy into a clone of the doctor when she ate one. Having turned evil, Amy joined Tails, Knuckles and Sticks (who also ate the evil cookies) under Eggman's tutelage to plot Sonic's demise. When Sonic came to save them, Amy and the others cornered him, but they then started fighting over the honor of capturing Sonic. During the fight, Amy and the rest were restored to normal by Sonic and Eggman (who Sonic turned good with a cookie containing his DNA). Eggman now thought they would work together, but Team Sonic did not like the idea and restored the doctor to normal as well.[16]

At home, Amy met Orbot and Cubot who asked for donations to elderly robots. Unaware it was a trick, Amy gave them her savings, but also mentioned she had planned to use it to help baby penguins. Ridden with guilt, Orbot and Cubot gave Amy her money back and more.[17] When Amy watched Sonic and Knuckles played coconut hurl, Eggman came by to attack them and their team with Cowbot, a robot which would create a massive explosion if destroyed. As such, Amy and her team disabled Cowbot while Tails reprogrammed it, which made it go after Eggman at his lair to kill him. Not deeming it right, Amy made Sonic go warn Eggman.[18]

While fighting Eggman's Octopus-bot, Amy and her friends were almost killed by a rockslide caused by Tails' untested unbolteriser. They still beat Eggman and drove him off, but Amy scolded Tails for endangering them, making Tails leave the crew until he could fix his invention. No sooner, they met T.W. Barker and his traveling circus who needed replacement performers. Sympatric, Amy volunteered Team Sonic for the job and they gave quite a performance. After the show, it was revealed Barker sought to keep them as his performers and he imprisoned Team Sonic. Fortunately, Tails came to their rescue, and after taking care of Barker, Amy thanked Tails and made amends.[19]

As Knuckles moped over always losing to Sonic, Amy tried consulting him until Sticks advised him to tip the luck balance of the universe in his favor by using up his bad luck. However, as Knuckles inflicted brutal misfortunes on himself, Amy and Tails got Sonic to stop him while they tried getting Sticks. Amidst this, Eggman began invading the island, which Amy and her team could not stop due to Knuckles' bad luck and Eggman currently good luck hurting their chances. Fortunately, they stopped Eggman by having Knuckles temporarily join Eggman and have his bad luck beat Eggman's good luck and neutralizing them both. Soon after though, Amy and the team noticed Knuckles' bad luck was passed onto Tails.[20]

In the middle of the night, Team Sonic saw a meteor land nearby which briefly knocked Sonic and Eggman out when they tried to take it. As Amy carried on with her team, Eggman arrived and said he was Sonic, having switched brains with Eggman. Amy did not believe him and drove Eggman off, but he soon returned with his army. While fighting however, Amy and the rest met Tails who explained the meteor had switched Sonic and Eggman's minds, and they quickly reversed the process.[21]

The Big Boom

Amy Rose (Sonic Boom) Archie Comics

Amy in the Archie Comics.

On a bright day on the beach, Amy, Tails and Knuckles came to Sonic's aid as he fought Dr. Eggman and his Big Boy, where they helped beat the mech and make Eggman to retreat. Sticks then arrived and told them that Tails' house had been robbed, though as the gang came to Tails' house, they discovered that the house was gone: what Sticks meant to say was that Tails' whole house had been stolen by what she described as a "cyborg rock golem" that rose from the ground. While Amy struggled to explain it to Knuckles, Sticks seemingly caught the scent of the robot. Though it turned out Sticks was only smelling the grass, the group still found the Rock-cyborg by following its footprints. As Amy set up an ambush for the robot, she had enough of Knuckles' slow wit and told him to "actually think" for once. She, Knuckles, Tails, and Sticks then made the Rock-cyborg fall, allowing Sonic to destroy it, thereby bringing Tails' house back on its foundation.[22]

Amy, Sonic, Tails and Sticks soon faced Eggman in the Big Boy again. Amidst the battle, Amy and her team were attacked and trapped by Knuckles, who explained he now worked for Eggman because he was tired of Amy calling him dumb. As the team was stored inside the Big Boy, Knuckles revealed he was pretending to work for Eggman to fool the doctor, but Amy pointed out he had let Eggman win this way, thus depressing Knuckles. With Tails' help, Amy encourage Knuckles to fight back, and they soon escaped thank to Sonic while Knuckles drove Eggman away, and Amy apologized to Knuckles for insulting him. After dealing with Orbot and Cubot however, Amy discovered to her horror that her piko hammer was gone.[23] Amy quickly sunk into a depression which was only worsen by the guys on the team. Once Amy was calmed by Sticks, who assigned the boys to find her hammer, Sticks got her to try some placeholders, but she failed to use them properly and only got Sticks and Knuckles injured. Fortunately, Amy got her piko hammer back from Sonic, and, after giving her thanks, she returned home for the night.[24]

For a climatic battle with Dr. Eggman's Big Boy mech, Team Sonic promised to face Eggman on the beach, but, Amy, Sonic, Tails and Knuckles soon forgot it. Hours later, Eggman, Orbot and Cubot found them in the Big Boy, and Team Sonic proceeded to counterattack, but were at a disadvantage against the Big Boy's upgrades. Coming to their aid was Sticks, who claimed she had found an all-powerful weapon: the Rock of Justice. Not believing a rock could help them, Amy told Sticks off and continued the fight. However, Sticks saved them with the Rock of Justice by throwing it at the Big Boy, causing it to ricochet into the mech and destroy it . Having scared Eggman and his lackeys off, Amy apologized to Sticks, only to hear that the Rock of Justice's power had been used up. After mourning their loss, Amy and Tails helped Sticks home.[25]

Personality

Amy is smart, independent, strong, and confident.[1][26] She is a natural leader and organizer but also perfectionist who need everything to be just right and she tends to take charge of everyone around her, though the latter is just because she knows what others want before they do.[4] She is sweet and has ballerina-like gracefulness, but also a capable and tough cookie.[4][7] For all her confidence though, she is sometimes shy about admitting her true feelings for others.[27]

Amy is most of the time the sensible member on her team.[28] She is eager to help her friends and takes care of them all, making her somewhat the mother of her group.[29][27] She is fair-minded and is the first to give support if someone is in need,[27] regardless of past transgressions, while attempting to understand both sides of an argument to keep the peace and solve the problem. She is very bright and an optimist, though it makes her sometimes come off as naïve, and when on a mission she tries to keep the team optimistic as much as she can.[10] In spite of this, she is rather temperamental with sometimes aggressive tendencies.[22]

Amy is extremely fond and emotionally attached to her piko hammer, which is her most precious possession, as she got hysterical and sunk into a depression when she lost it. She considers it her identity and that she is nothing without it.[24]

Powers and abilities

Amy has a high level of agility and acrobatic skills which let her do physical feats that would normally be difficult for someone else, such as performing body flips, balance perfectly on beams and walk across them and landing safely from a large fall with fluidity and grace. Amy is also a great fighter who knows martial arts to perfection.[29] She is capable of holding her in battle and is a heavy-hit combatant whose skills matches Knuckles'.[23]

Amy possesses strong leadership and organization capabilities, and is a quick thinker and tactician of considerable intelligence. She came up with a plan to bring down Eggman's Big Boy mech while coordinating her team twice, and she was able to calculate how to bring down Tails' house safely from the Rock-cyborg when setting an ambush.[22] Amy is also 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.[4]

Amy is quite the accomplished decorator with a real feel for color and shape. In addition to setting up atmospheric and detailed lunches, she could spruce up Eggman's lair so well that it was accepted by the highly-standard Modern Lair Magazine after it was unquestionably dismissed.[14] She is also a great cook and can make delicious cookies.[4][29]

After eating an Evil Cookie infused with Eggman's DNA, Amy briefly gained genius-level intelligence. However, it reverted back to her normal level after being cured.[16]

Weapons

Piko hammer

Main article: Piko hammer
Talk to the Hammer

Amy wielding her hammer.

Amy's primary weapon is the piko hammer, a large pink and yellow hammer that is capable of dealing massive damage with no excessive efforts, which she can summon out of nowhere at will. Amy wields her hammer to perfection[29] and is highly adapt and knowledgeable in its usage. Being both very powerful,[26] graceful and fluid with it, she can combing its powerful strikes with her own acrobatic skill, ensuring no movement with it is wasted.

Amy mainly uses its as a melee weapon and to perform acrobatic stunt, utilizing it as a hook to swing on bars. However, she is also able to use it as a long-range weapon by throwing it as a projectile with efficient accuracy.[22]

Relationships

Sticks the Badger

Amy and Sticks

Amy and Sticks

Amy is best friends with the wild girl Sticks the Badger. The two even have a BFF necklace with a pendant each which can be joined together to form a whole. She helps Sticks adapt to civilization and offers her support when she needs it while Sticks is willing to go to extremes to protect Amy.[30] The two are also shown to work well together in combat.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog is Amy's teammate and friend, who she secretly has romantic feelings for.[31] However, she is not obsessed or constantly fawning over Sonic,[6][31] and is very shy about admitting her true feelings for him,[27] like when she got especially nervous when UT almost told the gang about her crush. As such, she tries to cover up and even flat out denying any hint towards them (though it appears clear to others than Sonic).[11][31]

Knuckles the Echidna

Knuckles the Echidna is one of Amy's teammates and friends, though their relationship is sometimes strenuous due to their opposite viewpoints: while Amy plans strategically ahead, Knuckles would rather confront trouble head-on. Amy in particular has her patience tested by Knuckles' slow wit which may sometimes lapse into her saying hurtful things to him, though she is sorry about such behavior.[22] She also does not think highly of Knuckles' intelligence, though she does know not to overstep her boundaries,[22] and when Sonic is out of the picture the two of them argue over who should be in charge.[31] According to Knuckles, Amy thinks of him as no more than a "piece of meat."

In spite of all their conflicting standpoints, at the end of the day, Knuckles and Amy are loyal teammates who have each others' back and always make peace with each other. Additionally, Amy was concerned for Knuckles' health when he attempted to shift the luck balance of the universe in his favor.

Trivia

  • Amy dances Ballet as part of one of her idle animations in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric. This is perhaps a reference to her gracefulness which has often been linked to that of a ballerina.
