The Virtual Hedgehog is a robotic version of Sonic the Hedgehog that was created by Dr. Eggman in Sonic Colors. It looks exactly like Sonic but comes in a variety of different colors and other features. It is playable in Game Land. They also appear as the only playable characters in the Multiplayer mode of Sonic Lost World.[1]


Virtual Hedgehog was first leaked by Amazon in August 2010, with one certain screenshot, but the image was speedily removed.

Later on 2 September 2010, IGN revealed the Virtual Hedgehogs along with the information that they would be playable in Sonic Colors, but only in the co-op (later they were confirmed to be also playable Solo while having to switch characters at anytime whenever they please).

Physical Appearance

Virtual Hedgehog looks exactly like Sonic, but comes in a variety of different colors. It has a red antenna sticking out of its head, it has no pupils, and its eyes glow according to its color. It also has a circular light on each hand and its chest (that too depends on the color). There is a white cuff around its neck. Also, instead of Sonic's white folded cuffs, it has a gray metal ring on its ankles and wrists.

The color of the eyes and the "bulbs" they have on their hands vary; it depends on the color of the robot:

  • Blue Virtual Hedgehog: Cyan eyes and bulbs.
  • Red Virtual Hedgehog: Yellow eyes and bulbs.
  • Pink Virtual Hedgehog: Purple eyes and bulbs.
  • Green Virtual Hedgehog: Orange eyes and bulbs.
  • Black Virtual Hedgehog: Light blue eyes and bulbs.


  • The glowing red antenna on its head are similar to the orb on the Tails Doll.
  • When using a Color Power, the Virtual Hedgehog stays the same color as its dominant color unlike Sonic who changes into the Wisps' Color.
  • The Red Virtual Hedgehog is the only one to not have a color that is based off of a Hedgehog that has appeared in the series (games or otherwise) although in fairness it could represent Knuckles the Echinda since he is a character that is red.
  • The colors of the Virtual Hedgehogs in the Wii U version of Sonic Lost World are red and green the colors of Mario (red) and Luigi (green), which is ironic given that a major complaint about the game is that it's more of a Mario game then a Sonic game.
