The GameCube (officially called Nintendo GameCube and abbreviated GCN) is a video game console system developed by Nintendo, for which several Sonic the Hedgehog games were released. The GameCube is the successor to the Nintendo 64 and the predecessor to the Wii.

The GameCube competed for sales in the sixth generation of video game consoles alongside the Dreamcast (which ceased production before the system's launch), the PlayStation 2 and the Xbox.

The GameCube was the first Nintendo system to use optical discs as a storage medium for its games.

Vector and Mighty playing a Nintendo Gamecube.

  • In the Archie Comics Sonic the Hedgehog comic series, specifically in Sonic the Hedgehog #175, Mighty the Armadillo and Vector the Crocodile are playing a Nintendo GameCube at Freedom HQ.
  • Sonic Adventure 2: Battle was the first game Sonic appeared on a Nintendo console, despite of being the mascot for Sega and a rival to the company for many years before this.
  • Sonic Shuffle is Sonic's only Dreamcast title to not be remade on the GameCube.
  • Sonic Heroes was the first original game for the GameCube that was released when Sega became a third party company. 
  • Most PlayStation 2 ports of 6th generation Sonic titles received lower review scores from critics than their Nintendo Gamecube/Xbox ports, with the GameCube having the highest score.
  • Some Sonic-related titles on the Gamecube, most notably Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, were able to use special capabilities with the Game Boy Advance, connecting with some other Sonic games on that system, such as Sonic Advance and Sonic Advance 2. The main feature for this link was the Tiny Chao Garden, which was a portable garden, where you could take a Chao wherever you go, and care for it in a similar way to the Adventure games.
