To be honest, no. Sonic has always been known as a high-speed hedgehog. Making him a lycanthrope would just add unnecessary baggage to the series. I mean, Chip the Dog is bad enough as a new character being he's essentially just Tails with ADHD and a "dark secret". All of it is bull and whether or not Sonic Unleashed is a good game, I think the werewolf gameplay and Chip should be left to exist only in this game. ~ SilentRider639 SR639

I don't like the idea much. Sonic doesn't need any more unecessary dark emotions.E123Brawler Ω 17:16, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Why not? they do it once every 2 games.--Mystic being sarcastic 21:39, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Well thank god Dark Gaia took away his werehog power and chip died or somthing like that Dark Dedede 20:35, 9 December 2008

I recon that for an advance in Sonic's emotions and personality, a movie would be neccersary. He isn't a werewolf anymore anywayz. Flashfire212 03:19, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

What I don't get is why the Werehog wasn't just Knuckles. THEY HAVE THE SAME MECHANICS - climbing, punching, being generally more intimidating that Sonic...

Molten Scandium 11:25, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

I don't want to see the Werehog again. It's more than his lunky gameplay which could of easily been done by Knuckles or Ristar, but because Sonic is just as capable for emotional depth.--Mystic Monkey 18:22, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

Well, it seems others feel different, because SEGA's said that the Werehog will return.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 18:32, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

How? Wasn't Gaia sealed up?--Mystic Monkey 00:15, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

How would I know? All I know is that SEGA has said that we haven't seen the last of the Werehog. What else could that mean?--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 00:21, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

The Werehog is Fuzzy Sonic. That's all.-Sharna here! Chat! Sonarna! 00:31, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

Well, I personally like the Werehog. He's ferocious and powerful. Plus the stretching limbs are pretty darn cool.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 00:33, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

I don't know. I really like the Werehog and Chip (he's so funny) but i think Sonic has the same personality as a Werehog. And i've heard that the Werehog will be returning. (Yaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy!) Sonic & Scrab Master

I think Sonic might turn back into Werehog in a Sonic Storybook game. Sci-Fi/Horror genre, actually. It is a possible. -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to Shelly 01:20, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

I thought the Werehog already BROUGHT new depth to the new character? Just look at how the dude in blue reacts to others seeing him like this. On that note, Chip was a cool character and the Werehog fun to play. Herman2000 01:29, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah. The Werehog was way past fun. I don't care what those idiots at IGN say, as they always say, "You can't spell ignorance without IGN". Each time i pull a critical attack or an awesome combo, i just go (howls like Sonic the Werehog). I mean Oh Yeah, That's Right Baby! Sonic & Scrab Master

Im not saying the Werehogs Gameplay was bad, far from it, I just don't like the Werehog in general because he is suppose to be more different, bad@$$ and darker which Sonic doesn't need. Sonic the Werehog should remain at least as a one-off in Unleashed than any comebacks since Sonic is already awsome. In other words the Werehog to me was not only an excuse by Sonic Team not to add extra unneccisary characters (But did so anyway with Chip) but also an attempt to make something perfect even more better. It is why I suggested either Knuckles or Ristar because they could of had the exact same gameplay as the Werehog and get Sega wouldn't give the impresison of more unneccisary characters. Also Sonic is suppose to be Speed type, not Power.--Mystic Monkey 21:56, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Well SEGA has announced that the Werehog was N'T a mistake and it will return in later games. And I agree, the werehog factor waz bad@$$ but not as cool as Dark Super Sonic. And if teh werehog will return, then that means Chip will return as well since the werehog was Sonic being influenced by Dark Gaia. (Horray! Chip's going to come back) Sonic & Scrab Master

I don't think the Werehog should return, if he did, then that would surely mean a return of Dark Gaia and most likely Chip. I also feel that the Werehog was a gimmick that the game didn't need and they should have just worked the 2d thing instead. Myself 123 22:18, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

I know some like Chip, but again, his role could of been replaced with Tails. Actually I wouldn't be suprised if Unleashed, before the idea for a Werehog, was between Tails as the friend and Knuckles as the powerhouse, but were replaced by Chip and the Werehog who in my eyes are unncessisary characters. I may love Sonic games, but believe that Sonic Team are now clawing for ideas if they keep using a brand new character in every new game. After all they have old ones that are forgotten to them that they could still use which was hoped to happen when Team Chaotix returns.--Mystic Monkey 22:20, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Well Shadow and Knuckles were suposed to be playable along with the werehog, but was removed from the alpha version for an unknown reason. Sonic & Scrab Master

They should've kept them in, they should use the characters they have instead of making new ones. Myself 123 22:27, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

I guess there are rules Sonic Team must follow which denies them permit to use certain old characters. What reasons could such characters like Mighty and Nack not be permitted for use? My guess Tails Doll was originally Traveller's Tales but take in mind Tails Dolls is an official Sonic character not used outside of Sonic R in other Tt games. The only reason I see that sonic Team wouldn't use Mighty would because of simularities he has with Shadow but I doubt that his apperance would be a disadvantage at all in the eyes of Sonic fans.--Mystic Monkey 22:33, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

No, keep old characters and balance them out with new. but that's just me, the guy who doesn't hate any character (except Fleetway) in any media. heck i don't even hate Chris. Sonic & Scrab Master

Why keep old characters if not going to use them? If they will be used after a line of new characters then when? I say give us Sonic fans a real treat and have those forgotten classics in a game. Mighty, Ray, Fang, Bark, Bean etc. I would do it myself for my game ideas but dunno where they would fit in my current story idea.--Mystic Monkey 22:35, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Then again, I could include them in my secondary fan game idea starring Mystic, but now we are going off-topic. Point is, I think Chip and Werehogs a bit hyped.--Mystic Monkey 22:43, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Chip was very funny. I actually cried when he was resealed in the planet. And for once, Sonic has real power. the only time he had great strength was from his speed, as Darkspine Sonic, or in Sonic the Fighters. Sonic & Scrab Master

I guess Chip was rather original, I did find him quite funny, just wish he wasn't a useless character. All he did was talk now and again during gameplay and Gaia Colossus and now he's sealed up. If any between Werehog and Chip I would be alright for return would be Chip, perhaps replacing Tikal's Hint Orbs or Omochao but a really good reason would be needed for his release which Sonic Team probably skip.
Sonic: Wern't you sealedl within the Earth's core?
Chip:I got better.
Be like Shadow all over again, that be embarrasing.--Mystic Monkey02:26, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

Scrab cried? Well, you must admit that the ending was quite touching... -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to Shelly 02:29, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

I remember the first time I completed Sonic Adventure 2 and Shadows noble sacrafice, I almost cried. But I was pissed when I found out he was returning since I thought his "sacrafice" was so noble that they kinda ruined it. Anyway BOT--Mystic Monkey 02:32, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

S-Shut up! I nearly cried when Gamma died and I knew what was going to happen. Same goes for when Tikal left at the end of SA1. When Johnny Lightfoot died, i just didn't care. (i don't mean to be a jerk) and i also didn't care for when the Fleetway Chaotix failed to save their family before the special zone was destroyed. and i was rather upset when Knuckles died as well, but i didn't cry. Sonic & Scrab Master

Why tell me to shut up because I was sad over Shadow? I was sad over Gamma more than Shadow as a matter of fact. I dunno if he has returned or care because I prefer to honour the memory of the dead. Ressurection is usually acceptable if done after a period of time and reasonable. Shadow sacrafices himself to save the world itself from destruction... and when he awoke in Sonic Heroes 2 everyone was just cool about it.--Mystic Monkey 20:55, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

No i was talking to Sonicrox14. when he was suprised when i cried. Sonic & Scrab Master

Okay 2 things

Not to be rude, Mystic, but you mean Sonic Heroes, not Sonic Heroes 2
I know I usually only do this to Kagi, but I think you deserve it *slaps Scrab Master with purse* I AM A GIRL!! Sheesh, watch those typos of yours!

-- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to Shelly 02:57, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

FINALLY!!! Someone else gets the purse!!! It ain't fun, is it!? HA!!--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 03:00, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

Hmm, you tell me. *slaps Kagi with purse* -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to Shelly 03:01, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

OH COME ON!!!!--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 03:03, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

(engrish) sorry! it's just my computer sometimes doesn't read keys when typing quickly or just typing and i usually don't look over my text when i'm done. again sorry. So how did u like that comic i posted with Sonic's birthday. I wanted to make it up to u for not uploading your presents on time. Sonic & Scrab Master

They were umm...real funny! But, one thing though, don't you think they're a little...profane? -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to Shelly 03:36, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

What do you mean? Sonic & Scrab Master

She's talking about all the less-than-subtle sexual innuendo and language.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 05:03, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

EXACTLY! Kagi put it better than I ever could!! -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to Shelly 05:12, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

Do you want me to take away your present and leave you with two presents again? Sonic & Scrab Master

I dunno why you'd wanna do that, for I was only trying to make a point. But sure, if you want to, then take them back. I wouldn't care. -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to Shelly 05:41, November 28, 2009 (UTC)


G30FF: Hey Gear. Why is SSM talking to that girl with the monkey? Sonic & Scrab Master

Shelly: I'M NOT A MONKEY! *screen cracks* Oops. (now that is what I call a comic, Scrab Master!!) -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to Shelly 05:49, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

G30FF: Come on, Mokney girl. Hit me!

Me: No! Don't! Sonic & Scrab Master

Statyx: Hey bot! You wanna take on an electrokinetic?--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 05:55, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

I give up.

(Gear and his Dark Chao, Shift, split) Sonic & Scrab Master

Statyx: Yeah I thought so! *shakes his fist at Gear* I turn the great E-123 Omega into a quivering puddle of bolts! You'd better run!!--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 06:02, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

Shelly: Wheras I keep the Ultimate Life Form on a leash. *proud smile* -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to Shelly 06:04, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

Kamal: Funny, I own his female counterpart that was created by Lara-Su.

G30FF: Go ahead. Try your luck. See what happens. Sonic & Scrab Master

Statyx: .......*uses electrokinesis to seperate G30FF's legs, arms, and head from his body* Get my point?--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 06:10, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

Shelly: Testify, sister!
Statyx: *shows Shelly a charged-up hand*
Shelly: Sorry. "Brother".
Statyx: And don't you forget it.

-- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to Shelly 06:15, November 28, 2009 (UTC)


Me: Damn It! Now you've gone and done it! When G30FF enters Final Genocide Mode, he's almost invincible and immune to that techno-magic of yours. Not even the Ultimate Lifeform can beat him. Sonic & Scrab Master

Shelly: Oh, really? Then, what were to happen if I did this? *pulls out a wrench, untightens all of G3OFF's bolts, steps back* -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to Shelly 06:30, November 28, 2009 (UTC)
Statyx: Yeah, and I was created to trump the Ultimate Lifeform.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 06:33, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

(G30FF fires the bolts in all directions)

Yeeah. I forgot to tell you, he won't be defeated that easily. Hell, you can't even short-circet him. Something as powerful as Chaos Blast doesn't even work. Sonic & Scrab Master

Statyx: *teleports behind G30FF and presses a button. G30FF shuts down* The off-switch on his back helps though.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 06:40, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

That button places him in a kind of suspended animation for 20 seconds, when he wakes up he'll be 20X stronger.

(20 seconds later)

See? what i tell ya?

(G30FF fires his "Lazar" leaving everyone badly burned)

Now, do you want to listen to me? Sonic & Scrab Master

Guys… you're spamming like a group of n00bs. Isn't this what private messages are for? ……… sorry for the backseat modding, but you don't exactly give this place a good public image. Herman2000 23:03, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

(engrish) oops, sorry! Sonic & Scrab Master

Alright alright, BOT (Back On Topic.)--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 23:09, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah. anyway, I sure hope the werehog returns in the main series and not in the spin-off. And on the night of the werehog's return, I hope they bring Knuckles and Shadow into the game like they would be in the original. Sonic & Scrab Master

Shadow the Warhog!--Mystic Monkey 11:28, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

Are you referring to theWax's flash movie? I love that piece of work! Referring back to the forum topic, it is a good point that the Werehog thing would be sort of moral depth, but it is only acknowledged as Dark Gaia's retaliation from Sonic not being influenced by Dark Gaia. Possibly, a better explanation or Sonic form could be created to indicate Sonic's true nature.--Milotheechidna 18:47, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Watch the cutscene with Dark Gaia taking away Sonic werehog powers. That means that the werehog was an influence of Dark Gaia. Sonic & Scrab Master

Werehog repusenting Sonic's true nature? I just don't see that at all. Sonic himself is a repusentation of who he is, a sonic-speed cool blue hero. If Werehog repusented anything about Sonic it would probably be his insecurities which he keeps in the "dark" (Like we all do with our own secrets we prefer not to have on camera), however I do believe that the Werehog form is a reaction from Chaos Emeralds and Dark Gaia, nothing more. (Or however it worked at the start of Unleashed)--Mystic Monkey 22:06, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

I don't think it had anything to do with the emeralds. Eggman used both positive ad negative powers of the Chaos Emeralds to uleash Dark Gaia. Sonic & Scrab Master

You people read the manual and you STILL don't get it. When Dark Gaia was unleashed, the negative powers are what turned Sonic into the Werehog. And, to be honest...I thought he looked cute. -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to Shelly 05:16, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

I gathered that much, just find it wierd that the dark powers of an underground Earth God manage to reach Sonic from space?--Mystic Monkey 10:40, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

See? Sonicrox14 gets it. She makes a good point. Sonic & Scrab Master

To expand on my last comment, all Dark Gaia could do was to change his body, not his nature.--Milotheechidna 19:08, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

hE'S RIGHT about that. as seen in the inrto, Dark Gaia could put his whole hand on half of the planet; but in the final fight, he could fit in the core and still have alot of extra room. Sonic & Scrab Master

To be honest, i feel that the werehog was a little cliché and they didn't use the character change to it's potential. Myself 123 23:18, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Well as i've noticed; the werehog has a shorter temper. as seen when Sonic was transformed into a werehog. "You've really... gone and done it this time, Eggman." and when Chip backed into Sonic after restoring the temple in Chun-nan, as Sonic flicked him away and was about to grab him when he flew into the back of Sonic's head. Sonic & Scrab Master

No, Chip is just ludicrously good at annoying Sonic. And if being the Werehog could change Sonic personality-wise at ALL, doncha' think hed've had Chip la' Orange? It's because of Sonic's strong will that the only thing changed was his physical strength and apperance. -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 05:34, December 2, 2009 (UTC)

But Sonic has not shown any signs of annoyance to Chip as a Hedgehog. another fact that supports my theory; when the minaaur ghost was mocking Sonic in Night of the Werehog, Sonic became enraged and started attacking blindly. Sonic & Scrab Master

What I meant was that he turned into a monster, and no-one cared. Myself 123 17:10, December 2, 2009 (UTC)

... Sonic & Scrab Master

To Scrab: NO ONE likes being taunted, and that what happened to Sonic! He's got a short temper, alright?!
To Myself 123: They cared!! It's just that he explained to Tails, and Pickle explained to Amy! I'm sure they were worried, they just didn't show it!

--- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 03:18, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

Not like that, i mean no-one was scared of him or feared him. Myself 123 12:03, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

But Sonic would have acted more passive. He wouldn't attack in a blind rage, maybe Knuckles, but not Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic & Scrab Master

To Myself 123: I'm sure they'ved seen some weirder stuff. Chaos, Biolizard, Metal Overlord, Black Doom, even the DARK GAIA MINIONS THAT WERE IN THE SAME GAME.
To Scrab: He was stinkin' PROVOKED!!

-- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 02:50, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

So what he was provoked. He doesn't act that way when Eggman or Metal Sonic insult him. St. John's a different story. And how is Chaos weird? He's a chao and guardian of the Chao, Chaos Emeralds and Master Emerald. Sonic & Scrab Master

They knocked him around, taunted him, would YOU freak out like that if YOU were in his position?! -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 04:27, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

No. And neither did Sonic. The only character who made him mad was Jet because he insulted Sonic's speed. Sonic & Scrab Master

Well, that whole short was non-canon, so what're we debating over it for anyway?! -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 05:13, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

So the people aren't scared of sonic because weirder stuff has happened? Myself 123 13:03, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

Precisely! -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 03:33, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just spent ages writing something and I've lost it! Basically, it was conversation between two people in this twisted idea that they're used to all the stuff's that been going on. Myself 123 12:51, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

AW MAN!! Believe me, I know the feeling! -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 03:14, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah. me too dude. that happened to me about 10 times, I write like a whole paragraph and then it's all lost. It's just like those Special stages in Sonic 2 for the Genesis; Your so close to the Emerald but you reach the end and you only need to get one more ring. Don't you just hate it when that happens?! Sonic & Scrab Master
