Quotation1 There's been lots of times when Sonic did something or didn't do something that made me wonder why I ever liked him. But in the end, he always comes through for me. He may do crazy things and he may do stupid things; but he never does dishonest things. That's why I'll always have faith in him. Quotation2
Amy Rose, "Eggman for President"

Amy Rose (エミー・ローズ Emī Rōzu?) is one of the main characters of the anime series Sonic X and its comic series published by Archie Comics. While usually friendly and caring, if she feels threatened, she can instantly turn into a heavyweight hothead.[2] She is shown to be really stubborn and bossy throughout the series much to the annoyance of a few characters. She is Sonic's self-proclaimed girlfriend and her long-term goal is to get Sonic to ask her out on a date.[2]

History

Anime

New World Saga

Amy was first seen in the Tornado 2 with Tails trying to save Sonic. After the plane's engine caught on fire, she and Tails were saved by Knuckles and ended up on Earth because of Chaos Control.[3] Amy herself ended up in the sewers of Station Square along with Knuckles, almost exasperated for the uncomfortable team up; the two clash with Eggman's E-23 Missile Wrist in an attempt to save Tails and Christopher Thorndyke, and then joined in the fray by Sonic, who arrived in time to save the day. After that, Amy joined Sonic, Tails, and Cream at Chris' house.[4]

From there, Amy helped out whenever Dr. Eggman attempted something nasty. In this time, she became a fair cook thanks to her friend Ella's help.[5][6][7][8][9] She especially saved Sonic and shared a romantic moment with him at Emerald Coast as she prepared a shell bracelet to protect him from water. However, Eggman's robot, Serpenter, unexpectedly smashes her bracelet after it dropped from Sonic's hand. At first, Amy was upset and cried as she picked up the pieces. Her sadness quickly turned into furious anger, and she destroyed Eggman's robot. She then got launched into the air and landed in the ocean, smashing Eggman with her hammer as she continued to vent her fury at him. Amy almost drowned, but Sonic, to everyone's surprise, dived into water and swam to save her, and it is seen that she was holding the broken bracelet. When Amy regained consciousness, Sonic was gone, and her broken bracelet was lost. Unbeknownst to Amy however, Sonic had found the bracelet, repaired it, and began wearing it.[10]

Chaos Emerald Saga

Remaining on Earth, Amy continued her adventures along her friends, until Chaos Control was activated again when Super Sonic destroyed the E-99 Eggsterminator. When Sonic was being beaten to a pulp by the Eggsterminator, Amy was willing to take it on herself to protect Sonic when Tails was unwilling to do so because the X Tornado's firepower would not be a match for the Eggsterminator.[11]

Chaos Saga

Six months after the battle with the E-99 Eggsterminator, Amy had moved into a flat in Station Square largely unsatisfied of her actual life alone and without knowing where Sonic is.[12] When the battle between Eggman's Egg Carrier and X Tornado occurred in the skies of Station Square, Amy was hit on the head by a Flicky (that she would call "Lily"). Finding out the bird was injured, she took it with her and ran with it to assist both Tails and Sonic after seeing the X Tornado shot down from its dogfight with the Egg Carrier.[13] After that, She got kidnapped by ZERO and taken to the Egg Carrier, where she was freed by Gamma and becomes his friend.[13][14] During her escape from the Egg Carrier, Amy figured out that the Flicky she was protecting had a Chaos Emerald in its pendent. She soon after saved Gamma's life from Sonic when the robot fought. After getting to safety, she started looking for Lily's family, destroying ZERO in the process.[15][16]

Shadow Saga

After Chaos' attack, Amy bit farewell to Chris when he and his family moved to the capital while their mansion was being cleaned from the flood.[17] Amy was later shocked to find Sonic having become a wanted fugitive due to several thefts that were performed by a figure that appeared to be Sonic on surveillance cameras. After Sonic had a run-in with that figure, revealed to be Shadow the Hedgehog, Amy arrived just after Shadow fled to watch Sonic surrender to the police and GUN when they mention taking him to Prison Island. After Sonic's arrest, Amy went with Tails in the X Tornado to bust Sonic out of prison.[18]

Once on the island, Amy ran into Shadow and mistook him for Sonic at first, but then continued onward to find Sonic's cell, only to be attacked by a Gold Beetle that she easily disposed of. Sonic then busted out of his cell, and the two went to find Shadow, only for Amy to be forced to flee the island with Tails and Mister Tanaka when it was revealed that Eggman had planted bombs rigged to destroy the island in a few minutes. Amy escaped, but presumed Chris had perished in the explosion.[19] She learned later that Shadow must have rescued him.[20]

Learning of the Space Colony ARK, Amy joined Tails and the others as they traveled to the ARK.[20] Once on the ARK however, Eggman took Amy hostage and forced Sonic into being launched into space in an escaped pod rigged to self-destruct. Sonic, however, managed to escape in the last second. Amy and the others were as well unable to prevent Eggman from putting all seven Chaos Emeralds into the Eclipse Cannon, but instead of it firing on Earth when Eggman hit the trigger, it triggered a doomsday plot by Eggman's late grandfather, Professor Robotnik, who wanted revenge for his granddaughter, Maria, who was killed by G.U.N. 50 years ago.[21][22] With the ARK now on a collision course with the Earth, Amy remained behind while the others tried stop the ARK's crash. She also watched Chris convince Shadow to help Sonic stop the ARK. Amy then watched as Sonic and Shadow, in their super forms, destroyed the Final Lizard and performed a massive Chaos Control that restored the ARK to a stable orbit. However, Sonic returned with only one of Shadow's Limiter rings, presuming that Shadow sacrificed himself to stop the ARK. Amy and everyone then mourned for him before returning to Earth.[22]

Egg Moon Saga

After the events on the Space Colony ARK, Amy was back at the Thorndyke Mansion, watching the news when it was announced that Eggman had repaired the half of the Moon he destroyed with the Eclipse Cannon as an apology for his grandfather's revenge plot. Later, she grew frustrated by Sonic having not returned yet and began swinging her Piko Piko Hammer back and forth before suddenly striking something invisible, leaving her puzzled by what she hit. Later, the Chaotix arrived to collect Cream as part of a case they were on, but it soon escalated into a fight before Sonic returned with Vector's client, Cream's mother, Vanilla, who reunited with her daughter, while Amy had fun poking at Vector for the mistaken identity situation he was now stuck in.[23]

Much later, Amy was on the Thorndyke family yacht to celebrate the New Year with everyone, only to be disappointed when the sunrise got blocked by the Egg Moon. After Eggman apologized, saying that the Egg Moon was malfunctioning, and offered his Sunshine Balls as a temporary solution, Amy was shocked to find Sonic wrecking the Mirror Towers powering the Sunshine Balls, turning a lot of public opinion and fans against him.[24] As Sonic continued his rampage, Amy attempted to help get Chris and Tails to the X Tornado by smashing a wall down with her Piko Piko Hammer, only to find the way blocked by an angry mob led by Jerome Wise. Luckily, Sam Speed and his Speed Team arrived and forced the mob to leave. When Amy, Tails, and Chris found Sonic, having been fighting Knuckles before they and G.U.N. arrived with their Hot Shots, Sonic revealed to all of them that Eggman was lying about the Egg Moon malfunctioning so he could profit off his Sunshine Balls and brainwash the citizens.[25]

Returning to the Thorndyke Mansion, while Knuckles went with Rouge, Topaz, and Mister Tanaka into space to deal with the Egg Moon, Amy went with Sonic, Tails, and Chris to the capital to rescue the President and Christina Cooper from Eggman, who was holding them hostage in the White House. Soon after, Amy was part of an elaborate trap that led to Eggman and his two robot lackeys being arrested and imprisoned.[25]

Emerl Saga

With Eggman locked up, Amy managed to make a date Sonic, only for Sonic to never show up. In her frustration, Amy went out on a trip with Sam Speed, during which she gained a understanding for Sonic's need for speed. When Amy found Sonic however, he stood her up in favor of a race with Sam.[26] Amy soon had another problem as the various appliances being made by Chris' father's business, Thorndyke Industries, were turning evil and attacking people, a result of Eggman using his time in prison to install chips in the appliances to turn them to his side. Although Amy and her friends managed to deal with this, it provided Bokkun with the distraction to bust Eggman, Decoe, and Bocoe out of prison.[27]

Hoping to capture Eggman again, the President held a tournament with the red Chaos Emerald as the prize for the winner. Amy took part in the tournament, and advanced after Sonic unintentionally disqualified himself by going after Eggman when he fired at Amy after interrupting their match.[28] However, Amy was eliminated later in the tournament, and Emerl won, but when he went berserk due to the energy from the Chaos Emerald, Amy teamed with Sonic, Knuckles, and Rouge to take him down. However, she was no match for Emerl and his copy ability. She later watched as Cream and Cheese worked together to counter Emerl's copy ability and finally sent him to a watery grave.[29]

Homebound Saga

Soon, Amy learned that she and those from her world had to return to their home dimension, or time would stop permanently. After Chuck and Tails put together a portal that provided the means to send everyone home, Amy was one of the last to go through said portal before Chris shut it down so Sonic could not follow everyone else.[30][31]

Back on her world, Amy was visiting Vanilla and Cream for tea one night where she discussed her resolve to wait for Sonic to return, no matter how long, only to be rudely interrupted by Eggman flying about in his Grand Egg Imperial and calling Sonic out. Amy quickly got Eggman's attention when she dented the Grand Egg Imperial with her Piko Piko Hammer, but when Eggman and his lackeys made the mistake of insulting her further, Amy conjured another one, terrifying everyone around her. Amy fired several of her Piko Piko Hammers into the Grand Egg Imperial while Tails attacked it from the air in the Tornado 2/Hyper Tornado, until Super Sonic arrived to save Tails, wrecked the Grand Egg Imperial, and flew off toward Amy's house. Amy arrived back at her house just after sunrise to find Sonic waiting for her. After giving Sonic a good reprimand and then breaking down in tears, Amy embraced Sonic in a hug as she bawled her eyes out after he presented a flower to her and assured her he would not leave her again, though Sonic started to regret his words as Amy hugged and cried all over him for several seconds.[32]

Metarex Saga

Throughout the journey through space, Amy tries to rescue Sonic from a Metarex base, disobeying orders so that she can find him on a planet, and even tries to force Sonic into loving her by creating a love charm (although her plan failed as Tails and Cosmo accidentally triggered it instead), Sonic, on the other hand, has other things on his mind, but doesn't completely ignore her and her efforts. In the final battle against the Metarex, Sonic shows just how much he does care for her by putting himself and his life on the line so that the Metarex wouldn't hurt Amy. When Sonic is dragged inside the Metarex planet, Amy tries to save him, but ends up being dragged inside the planet as well—then, suddenly, a bubble appears and envelops them both, healing and protecting them. It transports them out of the planet (it seems as though something unknown had sensed how much they cared for each other and saved them when they needed it most). At the end, Amy doesn't see Chris returning to Earth and declares war on Eggman with the other heroes.

Archie Comics

Early Adventures

Most of Amy's adventures in the first comics involved her tagging around with her hero Sonic, as well as Tails and Cream. She watched as Sonic won a race against Sam Speed and was at the bank when Dr. Eggman. Getting out her Piko Piko Hammer, she slammed down on Ben-728 Packratbot and caused its missiles to explode. Attracting Dr. Eggman's attention, he ordered the robot to crush her, but Sonic raced on the scene and defeated the robot.[33] After a week later, Amy went with Chris' class as well as Tails and Sonic but were ambushed by Eggman's robots. They eventually found out that Sam Speed, Topaz, Mister Stewart, President and Chris were kidnapped and stuck inside the robots, meaning that they could not destroy them.[34] They managed to free them with help from Rouge and Knuckles.[35]

I Never Promised You a Chao Garden

Dr. Eggman unleashes his new plan by selling Chaos to the people of Station Square. Amazed by the appearance of the Chaos from her world, she dreams of heading back there and sleeping in her own bed again as well as Tails, Sonic, Cream and Cheese.

Dr. Eggman joins the fight with his Dark Chao with his giant robot, but is quickly defeated by a good version of Perfect Chaos. Sonic manages to change the Dark Chao to normal Chao again using a counter signal. Tikal and Chaos depart with the Dark Chao after they have been restored to normal back into the Master Emerald.[1]

Wicked Sweet Shuttle Shenanigans

After Chris' birthday party in Paris, Nelson Thorndyke plans to unveal his new space shuttle, that Eggman plans to steal. Rouge and Topaz also journey to Paris to find Eggman, but are too late when Eggman attacks the crowds with his giant robots. Amy runs with Sonic and Tails to stop the robots as Eggman, Decoe and Bocue try to steal the space shuttle, but are foiled by Big. Following Eggman into a house of mirrors, they are attacked by another giant robot. After the battle, Eggman flees with the space shuttle.[37][38]

No Thanks for the Memories

After the Chaotix left mysteriously to their world, Amy finds herself trapped in Marble Zone tied up. Sonic rescues her, but she is unable to fight back with her hammer missing. She travels with Sonic to rescue Knuckles, Rouge, Tails, Cream and Vanilla while Chuck Thorndyke and Chris try to find them. Once their reach the final level, Eggman begins the countdown to the launch of his rocket that he stole, where they are all trapped in along with the Master Emerald. Chuck and Chris manages to rescue them in time heading to Eggman's old base before they were sent to the moon.[39][40]

Holiday madness

When Christmas is about to start, Sonic reveals that he doesn't believe in Santa Claus and journeys to the North Pole to find him. With no luck, he heads back to Station Square. Eggman, dressed as Santa Claus, orders the citizens of the world that he wants Sonic. Amy defends Sonic, but he gives in and manages to reveal Dr. Eggman's plan.[41] During Valentine's Day, Amy is overjoyed that she is going on a date with Sonic (not knowing that it's because he lost a bet). During the date, Amy is oblivious to Eggman, Decoe, Bocoe and Bokkun trying to ruin the date and fail.[42] During St. Patrick's Day, Amy tries to pinch Sonic because he's not wearing green (even though his eyes are green) and defends it by wearing a green clover necklace. Meanwhile, Eggman tries to hunt leprechauns, mistaking a green Cheese and Bokkun for them. Sonic battles against his giant robot, but ends up being disadvantaged. Chris manages to trick Eggman to to follow the rainbow in search of leprechauns and Amy begins chasing after Sonic to pinch him after realizing that he has lost his green necklace during the battle.[43]

Amy appeared along with Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Chris and Chuck to show off her skills to Station Square. She managed to use her hammer in fury, which was downloaded into Eggman's new robot, X Robot. Eggman sent his robot to attack them and easily overpowered them with their own abilities. The heroes thus worked together and managed to destroy it with their own abilities.[44]

Green-eyed monster

Dr. Eggman unleashed his new line of three Greenbots that all have powers of water, light and wind to gather the Chaos Emeralds. Amy, Sonic and Tails tried to stop them, but they stole the Chaos Emerald in the X-Tornado. They followed them to Angel Island, where the Greenbots proved too powerful. Gathering all of the Chaos Emeralds and the Master Emerald, Eggman used his Greenbots to take control of Perfect Chaos by turning it into Chaosbot.[45] He ordered Perfect Chaos to attack Station Square while Amy, Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were trapped on the island. Chris and Chuck arrived with the Tornado and they flew to Station Square with them on-board. Sonic managed to become Super Sonic with Chaos' hand managed to free Chaos from Eggman's control, who then traveled back to the Master Emerald.[46]

Personality

Amy is rather temperamental, bossy, and stubborn, which can make her threaten or even harm her friends for things they had nothing to do with. However, she is very cheerful, optimistic, kind, friendly and a loving person who cares a lot for her friends.

Powers and abilities

Weapon

Amy's main means of combat and offense comes in the form of her signature weapon, the Piko Piko Hammer. She apparently is able to conjure the hammer out of thin air, though it is unknown if this is a natural talent of Amy's, or an ability that comes with the hammer. Her hammer is also known for striking fear into those it is being used against, such as Bokkun.

Relationships

Sonic the Hedgehog

Amy is Sonic's self-proclaimed girlfriend and her long-term goal is to get him to notice, love and respect her. No matter what mood she is in, her heart melts quickly the instant she sees her fleet-footed hero.[2] 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 comfortable with Amy whenever she is not obsessing over him, even going so far as to bring her a white rose and promising her that he would never leave her. Amy also has romantic daydreams about her and Sonic.

Notes

  1. Prior to "Countdown to Chaos", it was stated on Amy's eyecatcher card that she is 12. When it is later stated that a six-month timeskip has occurred between "Countdown to Chaos" and "Pure Chaos", and "A New Start" and "A Cosmic Call" from Amy's perspective, Amy's current age would be 13 since nothing has been revealed to contradict it.
  2. The world where Amy comes from is not named in the anime and comics. The comics state, though, that Amy and her friends traveled across dimensions on a parallel planet, Earth.
