Why is Silver slower than the friggin' universe? Did SEGA give him psychic abilities to replace his slowness?Blue Light 04:19, 19 January 2009 (UTC)Blue Light

What do u mean? Dawnthehedgehog 04:25, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Oh, sorry. That really doesn't make much sense, does it? Is Siver supposed to have psychic abilities to make up for the fact that he's slwer than the universe. I mean, really! I'm having a crapshot over here!Blue Light 04:29, 19 January 2009 (UTC)Blue Light

ha crapshot, oh now i know wat u mean but y would he be slower if he might be sonic or shadow's decendent? Dawnthehedgehog 14:19, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

I hate to have to bring this up again, but watch a playthrough of the game on his story and see just how slow he goes. I could run faster than him and I'm fat.(Not incredibly overweight or anything...)Blue Light 14:23, 19 January 2009 (UTC)Blue Light

I belive u. Dawnthehedgehog 14:59, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Oh...thank you.Blue Light 15:07, 19 January 2009 (UTC)Blue Light

ur welcome. Dawnthehedgehog 15:09, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

By the way, the playthroughs are comentated on and I think they mention that Silver's slow. Another thing is that his beginning cutscene shows him using this big blast of psychic energy, and can't do that in the game, but yet can do Chaos Control.Blue Light 15:16, 19 January 2009 (UTC)Blue Light

oh ya ive seen that 1 so he cant fly in the game? Dawnthehedgehog 15:25, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

No, not for how long he was. He can sort of glide usig psychic abilities.Blue Light 15:45, 19 January 2009 (UTC)Blue Light

oh ok Dawnthehedgehog 16:03, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

I can explain why Silver is slow... because Sonic Team relised that in order for Sonic to be the fastest thing alive, they should stop making characters that can move just as fast as him (Every speed type character you know) So to prevent making a total clone they made Silver fairly normal controls + Emense psychic powers. They even tweeked Shadows controls to be less like Sonic.--Mystic Monkey 19:13, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Understandable, but what's their excuse for Espio and Amy? What do they say about them moving at Sonic's speed? Flashfire212 06:35, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Espio wasn't in the game, but if your on about Amy's invisability power that is explained here where I said the programmers were rushed.--Mystic Monkey 14:07, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

I meant with Sonic Heros. Flashfire212 10:59, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Eh? since when did we change subject?--Mystic Monkey 20:15, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
On Sonic Heros, they could travel at equal speeds to Sonic and Shadow. I thought that Sega would try to clarify that too. Flashfire212 00:08, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Oh thats just to make the speed/flight/power groupings more equal. Noticed that Team Sonic is the fastest while Team rose is for the n00bs.--Mystic Monkey 08:23, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

I guess.

Why would anyone want 5 speedy hedgehog characters in the game series alone(counting Metal)? At least tht's one of the few original things about Silver.E123Brawler Ω 00:50, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

True. Flashfire212 02:43, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

The same reason why have 2 of each type in Sonic Adventure 2. Though all the characters in the game were generally the same in gameplay, they are each still characters (Or in Heroes case teams) with a story to contribute that all comes in as one.--Mystic Monkey 22:42, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Understood. Flashfire212 06:03, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
But of course in Next-Gen Sonic Team thought it be best to go with Sonic, Shadow and Silve rhaving different gameplay for each characters to be mroe unique.--Mystic Monkey 02:59, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

ya...Dawnthehedgehog 14:41, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

True. Flashfire212 23:24, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Pretty much a clever play... on gameplay, to counter boring controls one must have decent plot or vice versa. In Next-Gen case a mix of plot-holed ridden, poor handling both.--Mystic Monkey 15:38, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

i dont know y but i cant seem to understand Mystic offense im just not good with vocab. Dawnthehedgehog 15:20, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Basically, he said the plot was crap and the controls lame. Flashfire212 05:23, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

and that it relied on being a clever ass of a game.--Mystic Monkey 00:28, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
It wasn't even that was it? Flashfire212 05:18, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
The harder you try, the harder you win/fail... in this case fail.--Mystic Monkey 21:53, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Don't worry. I'm extremely verbocious. what does that mean? your homework: LOOK IT UP IN THE DICTIONARY.The Chosen One of Fire 12:43, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

And to those who don't know when checking it online, it means (censored).--Mystic Monkey 17:49, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Allow me to shed a little light on this subject and clear up all confusion. the reason y Silver was so slow was because he was in Sonic 06 and everyone, except Blaze for some reason, moves slowly but Sonic moves very fast in the Mach Speed stages.
