— Sonic the Hedgehog, "Double Doomsday"
Sonic the Hedgehog is the main protagonist of the Sonic Boom series. He is an anthropomorphic hedgehog gifted with super running speed, who fights Dr. Eggman and other villains alongside his group of friends as the leader of Team Sonic to preserve peace and freedom.
Concept and creation
During the development for Sonic's redesign, the developers went through a long process where they experimented with different accessories before they decided to stick with the "Scarf Sonic" design. They settle with giving Sonic a neckerchief because it payed homage to the classic adventure theme and was an action adventure trope which fit with Sonic's game character role while emphasizing his "get-up and get-go" attitude and his love for adventure. According to Bob Rafei, Sonic's scarf is partially based on Nathan Drake's scarf from Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.
The sports tape Sonic wears is inspired by fighters and American football players and is meant to give him a sense of practical heroism by showing that he is not vain, which is a trait more fitting for villains, when saving the world and to give him a more grounded approach. He especially got sports tape around his feet to emphasize that his specialty was speed. While his following design was nearly identical to his main series counterpart, he eventually received blue arms and additional spikes to differentiate the two hedgehogs.
Sonic retains most of the appearance from his main series counterpart, but has a few physical differences. He is much slimmer, with longer arms and legs and more pronounced shoulders, giving him a lanky appearance. His hands are also noticeably smaller. Sonic's quills are also slightly shorter and messier, having some cowlick-like spikes that sticks out from his top and lower quills, and his arms are covered in blue fur, as opposed to being skin-colored. Sonic also has a visible neck, although it is usually covered by his scarf.
For attire, Sonic wears a pair of white gloves with cuffs and a pair of red sneakers with white cuffs, grey soles, and a rectangular gold buckle on top. He also has white sports tape wrapped around the palms of his gloves, the heels of his sneakers (to reinforce his shoes) and his lower forearms and legs. Finally, he sports a brown neckerchief. He also occasionally wears his Communicator.
In addition to his usual clothes, Sonic has a number of additonal attires:
- At formal occasions like the Awardy Awards, Sonic wears an open brown jacket in addition to his regular attire, with the exception of his neckerchief.
- For underwater missions, Sonic has his own high-tech attire which includes a blue wetsuit with a white stripe on each side and his face icon on the chest, red flippers resembling his shoes, and a transparent face mask attached to an oxygen tank on his back.
- For cold weathers, Sonic wears a thick grey and dark grey down jacket with a hoodie and red details, grey and dark grey mittens with red cords, and grey, white and red winter boots.
- One time, Sonic wore a waiter uniform, which included a black jacket and bowtie.
- When playing for the Pin Dashers, Sonic wears a dark blue and white-striped bowling shirt with matching bowling shoes. His shirt is likewise emblazoned with the team's logo.
- When performing with Dude-itude, Sonic wears a glittery jacket and microphone headset.
- For high-altitude trips, Sonic has an advanced white spacesuit with blue boots, belt and arms, and a white helmet with an antenna on top, spikes to accommodate his head quills, and a transparent visor.
- For soccer matches, Sonic has a soccer uniform that includes a white and blue t-shirt with a blue chest logo shaped like Sonic's head, long white socks, and white shoes with blue laces and red soles.
- When he worked at Meh Burger, Sonic wore the standard Meh uniform, which is a lavender shirt with yellow leaf-markings and a name tag on it.
- During an attempt to lure a possessed Tails out, Sonic wore a sunflower costume. This costume consisted of a green bodysuit and a hood shaped like the head of a sunflower.
- On holidays, Sonic has been know to wear a long silver scarf and a red and white Santa Hat with a golden bell.
Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric
In Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, while out foiling one of Dr. Eggman's evil plans with Tails, Knuckles and Amy, Sonic and his crew pursued Eggman and Metal Sonic to a distant island. After briefly splitting up, the group arrived at an ominous ancient tomb, where Metal Sonic and Eggman's newly acquired Destruction Troops cornered them. Against his team's wishes, Sonic opened the tomb and had his group seek refuge inside. As they got trapped inside, Sonic was scolded by his team for his solo-actions as they tried getting out, during which they accidentally awoke Lyric the Last Ancient who showed familiarity with Sonic, much to Sonic's confusion, before trapping them in his shackles as he fled. Converting the shackles to Enerbeams, Team Sonic tried fruitlessly to catch Lyric, and so went to find Cliff to get some info on Lyric.
Finding Cliff, the archaeologist unveiled that Lyric was a rogue Ancient who planned to power his Sentinel army with the Chaos Crystals to destroy all organic life, but was imprisoned by his race when they discovered his plan. Though Sonic was harshly judged by his team, they set out to retrieve the Crystals before Lyric. While seeking their second Crystal after getting split up, Sonic and Tails encountered MAIA, a robot who rebelled against Lyric, in the Abandoned Research Facility who assisted the team by creating a time portal leading one thousand years back in time to retrieve a map for the Crystals. As they were about to enter a portal, Shadow the Hedgehog attacked Sonic and Tails, intent to prove Sonic's weakness. After Sonic knocked Shadow into a time portal, he and Tails went back in time to Lyric's Weapon Facility where they helped a younger MAIA halt Lyric's operations while they confronted a younger Lyric. While Tails got the map, Sonic held Lyric back and trapped him for his future imprisonment by the Ancients, upon where he realized Lyric's previous knowledge about him.
Back in the present, Sonic and Tails regrouped with Knuckles and Amy to continue the hunt. Along the way, they had to content with a short alliance between Lyric and Eggman, Metal Sonic who had been reprogrammed to serve Lyric, and the power struggle between Lyric and Eggman. Regardless, the team overcame it all and got each Crystal. When getting the last one though, Sonic was surrounded by Lyric's robots and Lyric demanded the Crystals in exchange for Sonic's life. Sonic refused, but Tails, Knuckles and Amy complied. Despite that, Sonic got shot by Lyric's robots and buried under rubble. However, he recovered and the team went after Lyric to Lyric's Lair. Proclaiming his friends were his strength, Sonic fought Lyric with his team. During the battle, Lyric used the team's Enerbeams to ensnare them, but before he could finish them, Eggman ambushed Lyric from behind, freeing the group. Sonic subsequently tied up Lyric with assistance from his friends, during which Shadow dropped by, and removed Lyric's technopathy device to incapacitate him. With the threat over, Team Sonic celebrated their victory in the Village, with Sonic having gained a new sense of appreciation for his team.
Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal
In Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, Sonic and his team saved Sticks when she was caught in a rockslide, who ominously warned them that an army was coming. Later, Sonic was contacted by Amy, who was out researching the Lost Crystal of Power, over their AVA. Through it, he saw Amy being kidnapped by Lyric the Last Ancient, who sought to rip her knowledge of the locations of the Crystal Shards from her brain.
Starting a rescue mission, Sonic assemble Tails, who found a way to track Amy from her data logs, and Sticks, though the latter's attempt at an impulsive rescue forced Sonic to rein her in and convince her to work with them. On their way, the trio found Knuckles, who had been guarding Amy's path, and recruited him for their search too. The team soon after met a strange-acting Shadow the Hedgehog, who challenged Sonic to a fight. After Sonic beat Shadow, the heroes learned that Shadow had been controlled by Lyric with a Mind Control Device. Though a hologram from the device, the group was warned by Lyric that he would soon have the power of a god, once he was done with Amy. While Shadow left to get revenge on Lyric, Sonic and his friends resumed their search.
Entering an ancient robot plant, Team Sonic was attacked by Metal Sonic, whom Sonic beat. They then followed Metal to an island, sure he would lead them to Lyric, where they found a plane that they reached Lyric's sky base with. There, they freed Amy and confronted Lyric, where Sonic proclaimed the power of solid a team. Lyric thus separated Sonic's team from him with a trap, but Sonic defeated Lyric and freed his team. Lyric then called forth a weapon to kill Team Sonic with, but thanks to Shadow's arrival, the weapon was foiled and Sonic dropped Lyric from his airship. Concluding their adventure with a teamwork discussion, Sonic went home while arguing over team names with Knuckles, disappointed that Shadow was not joining them.
Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice
In Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, Team Sonic began detecting strange weather patterns that could destroy the world if left unchecked. Coming to Kodiak Frontier to get some readings for Tails, Sonic and Amy uncovered a fissure that infused their Communicators with fire and ice powers which they used to close the fissure. As they left to met up with Tails, who told them that sealing the fissure stabilized the weather, Sonic and Amy came across D-Fekt, an Eggman robot with nearly limitless magnetic powers who tried to keep them from closing the fissures. Upon finding Tails, the fox found a way to share Sonic and Amy's new powers with their teammates. No sooner though, the trio headed home to seal new fissures with their new powers. On the way, they tried to catch D-Fekt until Eggman came and took Sonic to a race against his Ragnium-powered EggBot Racers as part of a plan to humiliate Sonic. Sonic, however, easy beat his opponent and got back.
Back home, Sonic and his team brought in Knuckles and Sticks as they began pursuing D-Fekt across the islands while also sealing fissures, suspecting the robot and the fissures were connected. Meanwhile, Sonic would repeatedly be taken away to race EggBot Racers by Eggman. In time, the team learned the fissures held Ragnium minerals which D-Fekt was covered in. Team Sonic thus got D-Fekt to wear a tracker which lead them to Ragna Rock where Eggman was mining for Ragnium and piping the mining by-products off to adjacent islands, thereby creating the fissures which were destroying the environment. Confronting Eggman in his mines, Sonic and Sticks ended up fighting D-Fekt to save Eggman when the robot went overboard trying to destroy Team Sonic to please his creator.
After defeating D-Fekt, Sonic made a painful rescue of Eggman. Although his Ragnium mine had been lost in the fight, Eggman, feeling obligated to show gratitude, gave D-Fekt to Team Sonic as thanks. As Tails programmed D-Fekt to be harmless, Sonic headed home with his team.
Not much is known about Sonic's past. Years ago, he met Dr. Eggman. When they locked eyes, it was, as Eggman put it, "hate at first sight". Ever since then, the two of them have been fighting one another. In time, Sonic met his lifelong friends in the following order: Tails, Amy, Knuckles and Sticks. Together, the group would form Team Sonic and save the local village from hundreds of thousands of Eggman attacks. On one of their adventures in particular, Sonic and his team got involved in a time-traveling escapade with Eggman.
In the past, Sonic and Knuckles had a few escapades while staying in Amy's House, such as letting in skunks and competing to put hats on the most monkeys. It was also years ago that Sonic would play Tomatopotamus 2 with his friends all the time, becoming the best player of them, until the game got recalled. To compensate for his inability to swim, Sonic would also try taking community swimming lessons, but backed out to avoid teasing from the kids in the beginner class.
As Sonic chased Dr. Eggman, he was ambushed by Burnbot. In the ensuring battle, Tails came to Sonic's aid in the Tornado until Burnbot made Tails crash. Finishing Burnbot, Sonic found Tails alive, but hurt. Swearing not to let Tails get hurt again, Sonic fired him as his sidekick once he recovered, and held try-outs to get a new one. During the try-outs, both Tails and Eggman applied, whom Sonic begrudgingly allowed to move on (along with Fastidious Beaver) since he promised everyone could come. As Sonic set up a race to test them, he saw Eggman make Tails crash into a frozen lake with Burnbot. Coming to Tails' aid, Sonic nearly drowned thanks to Burnbot, but was saved by Tails who helped him beat Burnbot. Afterwards, Sonic reconciled with Tails and rehired him.
While at Tails' House, Sonic met Eggman, Orbot and Cubot, whom he reluctantly allowed to stay while their lair underwent repairs. Increasingly annoyed by Eggman, Sonic and Tails almost kicked him out until Amy made them give him another chance. After the duo was kept up all night by Eggman, the doctor told all of Team Sonic that he lied about his lair so he could exhaust Sonic and Tails, and summoned Obliterator Bot to kill them. However, Obliterator Bot misheard Eggman and attacked his lair instead. Convinced by Eggman to stop it, Sonic, Tails and Eggman reached Obliterator Bot's kill switches in the lair despite their downiness while the rest distracted it. Though they could not save the lair, Sonic had Eggman stay at its ruins when he tried to bunk with him.
As Sonic, Amy, Knuckles and Sticks chilled on the beach, Tails showed them his universal translator UT. However, UT created tension between Sonic and the team by translating their private thoughts from the subtext of their speech. When Tails and UT returned the next day, UT "translated" their comments into insults. As they started to fight though, Tails discovered this UT was a fake send by Eggman to tear them apart. While Tails went to save the real UT, Sonic and the other stayed home, not thinking UT was worth it. Later, UT returned to give them a message from Tails and translated it into a call to rescue him from Eggman. At the lair, Sonic and the team freed Tails and beat Eggman's Mega. As Sonic saw more times with UT though, Sticks threw it into the sea.
When Sonic saved the Village from Fire Bot, he and his team noticed Sticks' ill treatment of animals and convinced her to get a pet to learn compassion. Coming with Sticks to look for a pet, Sonic saw her chose a disgusting robo-dog she named "Buster". Over the next week, Buster was an annoyance to Sonic and the team which culminated in Buster keeping them from stopping a robbery made by Orbot and Cubot. As they tried to make Sticks give up Buster, Eggman came with a gift and revealed he made Buster. The gift turned Buster into a larger robot who caught Sonic and the team, but Sticks assumed control over Buster and had him release the team and remove Eggman. The team then said goodbye to Buster as Sticks released him due to his dangerous nature.
While Team Sonic was in the Village as it was hit by meteors, Sticks saved them with her defense system. Later, Sonic and his crew heard from Sticks that she had been nominated for an Awardy Award, but refused to go to the Awardy Awards in fear of embarrassing herself. Begrudgingly, Sonic was made Sticks' escort and helped with her lady lessons. At the gala, Sonic learned Eggman was also a nominee (by cheating). When Eggman did not get the award and attacked everyone in vengeance, Sonic tried to fight his Badniks, but got incapacitated. Thanks to Sticks though, Sonic was freed and he drove Eggman and his Ballot Stuffer Bot into retreat, allowing the gala to resume.
When preparing Amy's decorative lunch, Sonic slacked off instead of helping, making Amy feel unappreciated. When Eggman showed up to hire Amy for a redecoration of his lair for Modern Lair Magazine Amy accepted it, much to Sonic's shock. Seeing they did not treat Amy right, Sonic took his team to Eggman's lair to check on her, where Eggman claimed that Amy had chosen to stay. Not buying it, Team Sonic broke into the lair and found Amy encaged. After Sonic made amends with Amy, the team trashed Eggman's lair and his Badniks on their way out, costing Eggman his spot in Modern Lair Magazine. To cheer Amy up, Sonic let her redecorate his shack.
On a trip to Meh Burger with Amy, Sonic's meal was postponed due to Eggman and the employee, Dave. Later, as Sonic and Tails tested Tails' Reverse Polarizer, Orbot came to have Cubot repaired. Soon after, Sonic and Tails went to Eggman's lair after detecting two Doomsday Devices and discovered that Eggman and his intern Dave were competing to see who could destroy the world best with their Doomsday Devices. As such, Sonic and Tails tried tricking them into calibrating their devices so they canceled each other out. When they created a black hole instead, Sonic carried out Tails' plan to destroy it with the Reverse Polarizer and saved existence.
While home, Sonic found a batch of Evil Cookies, but had to go help Tails stop his vacuum-robot before he could eat one. When he returned with Tails, only one cookie was left, which he gave to Tails upon his request. Later, Orbot informed Sonic that his team had been turned into Eggman's clones by eating the cookies (which were made by Eggman). As Sonic went to Eggman's lair to rescue his team, he got corned when Eggman had them attack him. However, as his team began to fighting over the honor for capturing him, Sonic made an Evil Cookie with his DNA which he gave Eggman, turning him into his ally. With Eggman help, Sonic made new Evil Cookies which he used to cure his friends. The good Eggman thought they would now work together, but Team Sonic did not like the idea and cured the doctor too.
During a Hoverboard race, Sonic and Tails saved Gogoba Village from the Weasel Bandits when they plundered it. As the Gogobas made them stay for a victory feast at their own expense, Sonic and Tails felt terrible and tried to leave many times, but the Gogobas kept guilt tripping them to stay until they had them remain as their protectors. When the duo failed to get away by giving the Gogobas a security system, Sonic had the successful idea of guilt tripping the Gogoba Chief into letting them go. Back home though, Sonic saw the Gogobas had moved into his shack so he could protect them. No sooner, the duo was attacked by Eggman and his Badniks. After beating the robots, Sonic and Tails convinced Eggman that the Gogobas would be a great asset to him. Guilt tripping the Chief as well, Sonic got rid of the Gogobas as they chose to follow Eggman.
Another time, Sonic and Knuckles beat Eggman when he attacked them with his Badniks. The following day, they met Orbot and Cubot who were looking for Eggman. Hearing Knuckles' exaggeration of their last meeting, Sonic told where Eggman went. When Sonic played coconut hurl with Knuckles, Eggman came by to attack Team Sonic with Cowbot, a robot that would create a large explosion when destroyed. Sonic therefore distracted it while Tails reprogrammed it, causing it to head for Eggman to kill him. Pressured by his team, Sonic went to warn Eggman with Tails. However, Eggman convinced them to help upgrade his lair's defenses for Cowbot. While waiting for Cowbot, Sonic, Tails and Eggman bonded while roasting marshmallows. When Cowbot arrived, the weapons got gunked up with marshmallows, so they stopping Cowbot by gunking it up too instead. As Eggman then revealed he had planned to make them upgrade his systems for his own usage, Sonic foiled his plan by gunking up the systems as well.
During a battle with Eggman's Octopus Bot, Team Sonic were nearly crushed by a rock slide triggered by Tails' faulty Unbolterizer. While Sonic stopped Octopus Bot, Tails left the crew until he could fix his invention, despite Sonic reassuring him. No sooner, they met T.W. Barker and his traveling circus who needed stand-in performers. Team Sonic volunteered for this and put on a good show in the evening. As Barker revealed his plan to keep Team Sonic as his performers though, he imprisoned them, specifically Sonic in the Sphere of Fear. Fortunately, Sonic got a call out to Tails who rescued them. Imprisoning Barker, Sonic departed with his team.
Over the following week, Sonic competed and won against Knuckles many times, the final game being Gopher Ball. Knuckles, blaming his losses on bad luck, thus tried to use it up by causing himself misfortunes, making Sonic worry for his survival. Persuade by his friends, Sonic convinced Knuckles to have a rematch with him, which was ruined by Eggman who began an invasion of the island. Team Sonic tried to stop the doctor, but Knuckles' bad luck and Eggman's current good luck ruined their chances, so Sonic got Knuckles to join Eggman to have their luck streaks neutralize each other. Sonic's plan soon worked and Eggman retreated. When Knuckles rejoined them though, they discovered his bad luck had been passed over to Tails.
While out stargazing, Team Sonic saw a meteor landing nearby. When Eggman came to claim the meteor, he and Sonic raced to it, which swapped their minds as they touched it. Brought to Eggman's lair by Orbot and Cubot who thought he was Eggman, Sonic sought out his team when the robots did not believe who he was. However, his friends did not believe him either, and Eggman (in Sonic's body) had them drive him off. Using Eggman's army, Sonic returned for a rematch with Eggman when Tails came with the meteor to verify Sonic's claims. Though Eggman refused to swap back with the meteor, Sonic made him do so by threatening to cut Eggman's mustache. Following a fight with Scorpion Bot, Team Sonic noticed Eggman sliding into a slump. After not hearing from Eggman in a while, Sonic checked on him and saw he had lost his drive to be a villain. Sonic soon grew bored with the peace and ended up annoying his team with his restlessness. Sonic was later lured to Eggman's lair by his team so he and Eggman would fight again. Though Sonic saw through this, he re-motivated Eggman his own way and their conflict began anew.
Having helped Tails built a berry picking machine, Sonic joined his team at the pie festival, excluding Tails who was forced to replant the orchard his machine destroyed. When they returned, Tails had left to join the Lightning Bolt Society and the seeds that had been planted had turned into mutant flora, making Sonic and Amy go get Tails. When they intruded on the Lightning Bolts however, Eggman arrived, who thought they were joining the Lightning Bolts. With the Lightning Bolts only hindering Eggman, Sonic and Amy got Tails back to help them destroy the mutant plants with Tails' berry picking machine. After Sonic beaten Eggman in his Moth Bot, he was sued by Eggman when the doctor claimed Sonic had broken his neck. At the trial, Sonic stood to lose due to Eggman's machinations, T.W. Barker serving as Eggman's lawyer, and Knuckles' incompetence as his lawyer. Thanks to Amy's inference though, Eggman was revealed to be uninjured and Sonic could again fight him.
When pulling Tails away from his plane, Team Sonic found Eggman selling tomato sauce. Sonic thought the sauce was poisoned, but found it harmless when he was goaded into drinking it, and left Eggman alone. Weeks later, while dealing with faulty electronics, Team Sonic saw Eggman reveal on TV that his dispersed sauce cans had turned their electronics into robots to conquer the island. Fighting off a small army, Sonic and the others went to confront Eggman while Tails got his weaponized plane under control, but were overrun by Eggman's robots. Fortunately, Tails dropped in and shut the robots down with Eggman's controller while Eggman accidentally foiled his plan by revealing it on TV.
While Sonic saw Tails showcase his voice-controlled Tailsmobile, Sonic noticed he had begun making a horrible sound when running, which would have made the Tailsmobile drive Tails into lava had Sonic not stopped it. Unable to determine the cause, Sonic was told not to run. However, he quickly got bored and later felt unneeded when his team kept him from fighting invading Crab Bots. Meeting Eggman, who sympathized with him since he did not deploy the Crab Bots, Sonic confided in the doctor who gave him new shoes which seemingly muted his noise. Back home though, Team Sonic was attacked by Eggman with Giant Robot which grew stronger the more Sonic ran with his new shoes. Unable to remove his shoes or power down the robot, Sonic overloaded Giant Robot by running instead, before celebrating with a run.
As Team Sonic had a movie night, they were attacked by the Egg Tank. During the battle, Sonic was saved when Amy deflected one of the Egg Tank's weapons. As Eggman countered it though, an freak accident occurred, creating an time loop where the day kept repeating itself, which only Eggman knew. In this period, Sonic got captured by Eggman after he refined his attack, only for the time loop to reset it. Eggman thus sought Sonic's help to fix time. After several repeated attempts, Team Sonic helped break the loop by containing its reaction.
While Sonic was taking Knuckles out para-sailing, they accidentally awoke an unbeatable Granifer Giganticus. As Sonic reunited with his team in the Village as the rock monster trashed it, they realized the rock monster just tried to fall asleep. Discovering they could make the rock monster fall asleep to Sticks' lullabies, Team Sonic relocated him when he blocked a road, only for Eggman to try and capture the rock monster. While Sonic got Eggman to retreat, the team noticed the rock monster had fled with Sticks. Failing to find Sticks, Tails' Disasterometer located her and Sonic helped rescue Sticks. Sonic then lead the rock monster to Eggman's lair where Team Sonic had him fall asleep to a recording of Sticks’ singing.
As Team Sonic fought Eggman again, Sonic chased him into Buddy Buddy Temple. Falling through a floor, Sonic got injured while Eggman's Eggmobile got damaged. Trapped in the temple and unable to get out on their own, Sonic realized they had to work together and collaborated with Eggman to escape the temple and its death traps. While clearing a trap though, Sonic was left to be crushed by Eggman. However, he was then saved by Eggman who needed help to get out. As temple began to cave in, Sonic and Eggman found a way out as their allies arrived and got everyone to safety. Agreeing to stay as enemies despite their good teamwork, Sonic and Eggman parted ways.
When Team Sonic was at Meh Burger, they met Orbot and Cubot who had deflected from Eggman to be their friends, something Sonic did not take a liking to. Soon after, Eggman, Orbot and Cubot came to Team Sonic for help after a computer virus named Nominatus had taken over Eggman's tech to destroy all life forms. As Eggman's robots attacked, Sonic helped hold them off until Tails, Eggman, Orbot and Cubot destroyed Nominatus. Their truce over, Sonic promised Eggman a fight later. Following a day full of activities, Sonic was goofing off with Knuckles when Amy told him to return a library book she had lent him within a few minutes. Finding the book, Sonic tried returning it, but got sidetracked by the Old Monkey, Sticks, a trip to Meh Burger, and Eggman who had him bring him a chili dog after Sonic bought the last one. Short on time, Sonic was attacked by Eggman, who was displeased with his former aid, and his robots, until his team saved him. Then, with some help from his team and Eggman, Sonic returned the book in time in spite of the library closing early.
Meeting with Amy, Sonic heard she planned to go to Hidden Meadows. As Sticks offered to teach her the survival skills for the trip, Sonic thought he was better for this task and bet with the girls that he could teach Knuckles better survival skills than Sticks could teach Amy. Agreeing to a race to Hidden Meadows, Sonic and Knuckles neglected their preparations, so when the race began, they quickly fell behind. Stumbling through the jungle, Sonic and Knuckles either rejected or failed to notice the girls' help, before finding them stuck in an abandoned missile silo. With the girls safe there, Sonic and Knuckles used this opportunity to head for the goal, but was beaten when the girls rode a missile to the goal. When Sonic later pranked Knuckles with his team, they noticed a spy drone from Eggman. Giving the drone false info, Team Sonic lured Eggman into a prank that made Eggman desert technology and his lair. As Sonic was bothered by Eggman's attempts to defeat him without tech, the island got randomly attacked by Eggman's robots and missiles. Sonic sought out Eggman, only to hear from Orbot that the Lightning Bolts Society was behind this, having seized Eggman's lair. Failing to get Eggman's aid, Sonic helped his team attack the lair. When Eggman came though, he helped Sonic outsmart the Lightning Bolts over the surveillance and drive them off, and Eggman returned to his lair.
While out playing, Sonic and his team heard from Amy she was opening her own restaurant in response to Meh Burger's bad service. Filling the role of Chez Amy's staff, Sonic and his friends helped Amy, but left as Amy grew obsessed over her rivalry with Dave at Meh Burger. Despite this, Sonic answered Amy's call to arms when Badniks attacked Chez Amy. Despite their efforts, Chez Amy was destroyed, so Team Sonic returned to being customers at Meh Burger after helping rebuild it from an Eggman attack. When at Meh Burger later on, Team Sonic met Swifty the Shrew. While everyone were impressed by the hip shrew, Sonic found him annoying, especially after he foiled his attempt to show him up. Once he saw Swifty with Tails, Sonic had enough and was goaded into accepting Swifty's challenge to a race where the loser would be banished from the Village. Despite his efforts, Sonic lost to Swifty and was promptly banished. However, when it turned out to be a plan Eggman orchestrated to leave the Village vulnerable, Sonic's banishment was undone. Sonic thus returned and defeated Eggman and his Swifty robots.
While carrying on business as usual, Sonic would find his property littered with traps from Sticks, who tried protecting the team from the "Curse of the Cross Eyed Moose". To stop this, Team Sonic came with Sticks to a marmoset named Monkey-Boy to remove the curse, who had them to do chores to prove their worthiness, much to Sonic's annoyance. When Monkey-Boy was attacked by Eggman however, Sonic made the marmoset promise to remove their curse if they saved him. Completing the deal, Team Sonic was able to head home. When Sonic was made the judge of the upcoming Chili Dog Cook-Off, he helped his team manage the event. As the team noticed that those of them who participated had bought phony peppers, Knuckles left to find a new one. At the cook-off though, Knuckles had disappeared, so Sonic and his team went looking, eventually finding him the next day, having passed out from eating a dream-inducing pepper.
After foiling Eggman Explode-o-nut plans, Sonic helped with Sticks' yard sale that Amy had forced upon her, though Sonic disagreed with Amy's intentions. While keeping Eggman from shoplifting, Sonic found Sticks' Burrow overrun by the evil Froglodytes which Amy had set free by removing the blockade of their caves in the burrow. As the frogs took Sticks into their caves, Sonic lead the team in there and rescued Sticks using her own junk, and the group resealed the Froglodytes. In the aftermath, Sonic got Eggman to pay for his stuff. To his confusion, Sonic later found Knuckles filling in for Mayor Fink. While Sonic dismissed Sticks' concerns, he soon found the Village into chaos from Knuckles approving random bills, so he and his team joined the fellow-minded Eggman to stop him. When Knuckles' approval stamp ran out of ink though, they were betrayed by Eggman who seized the stamp to control the Village, although Sonic wondered why it was an issue as Eggman only wanted his trash picked up. After destroying the stamp, Mayor Fink returned to his job, much to Sonic's relief.
When Sonic and Tails found Obliterator Bot on a rampage and destroyed it, they noticed Eggman was really making a movie. Sensing foul play, Sonic declined Eggman's offer to play himself for his movie. When Amy showed him that Eggman got Dave to play him though, Sonic changed him mind. During the filming however, Sonic walked out when Eggman ejected his and Tails' changes to the scrip. Later, Orbot and Cubot told Sonic the movie was a cover-up to mine metal for new robots (which would make them obsolete), but after Sonic stopped Drill Bot, he saw he had been duped into performing for Eggman's movie. Coming to the movie premiere, Sonic learned the movie was meant to enslave the audience with hypnotism. However, it failed due to an error on Eggman's part and everyone could leave.
When Sonic picked up Knuckles for a fight with Eggman, he accidently upset the villagers when he told Mike the Ox that he could not come to the fight as he was "just a guy." With the Village in an uproar over his behavior, Sonic had to joined Amy's sensitivity seminar. When Sonic let Mike join a fight with Eggman as he apologized though, Mike got injured, earning Sonic more ire from the Village and making him retire at Amy's next seminar. As the Lightning Bolt Society began harassing the Village, Sonic refused to help until a sheep stampede occurred, during which Eggman launched a sneak attack on Sonic. Thanks to Mike warning him of Eggman though, Sonic stopped the stampede and beat both Eggman and the Lightning Bolts. Having regained the Village's respect, Sonic dubbed Mike a hero for his aid. During a barbeque, Team Sonic met another Knuckles and learned it was a version of Knuckles from a Mirror Dimension. Helping the alternate Knuckles to get back home, Sonic's advice to be patient fell on deaf ears when the alternate Knuckles left to get the tech they needed from Eggman. However, when learning their Knuckles was fading and that their dimension was in danger of imploding from hosting two Knuckles, Sonic, Amy and Sticks went to Eggman's lair and got Eggman to release the alternate Knuckles. Back at Tails' Workshop, they sent the alternate Knuckles home with tech donated by Eggman.
Helping Tails when his tools got stolen, Sonic tried accusing Eggman of the theft with Tails, only to find him innocent. While they tried catching the thieves with a trap, Sonic and Tails met Orbot and Cubot who took the duo to the thieves, who turned out to the Cubot prototypes who just needed repairs. As Sonic and Tails helped the rejects, they protected them when Eggman came to destroy them. Driving Eggman off with some help from Cubot, Sonic and Tails took the prototypes to a safer home. When later enjoying some commodities unintentionally provided by Dave the Intern, Sonic heard Dave had imprisoned Eggman and hijacked his forces. After Sonic told of his unconcern for Dave's threats on TV, Dave endangered himself and others when trying to attack Sonic with Octopus Bot. As such, Sonic liberated Eggman and made him reveal Octopus Bot's weakness after many arguments, which he used to stop Dave. On the day of New Year, Team Sonic set up the Village festival while warding off Eggman and his Ball Bots. When Sonic attended the party later, Eggman launched his Slow Motion Machine which slowed everything down, except for Sonic due to his speed. To restore the world, Sonic accepted Eggman's wish for a showdown and beat him in several games (since Eggman's machine halted any weapons). When Sonic heard that Eggman did all this to beat him just once before New Year though, he let the doctor win. As Eggman restored time to gloat, no one believed him as nobody saw him win, though Sonic provided his nemesis with some comfort.
When the Justin Beaver fever hit the Village and turned all the females into crazy Justin fan girls, Sonic decided to investigate Justin's producer, Dixon. Forming the boy band Dreamboat Express, Sonic had himself, Tails and Knuckles pass off as Justin's opening act to the bouncer Salty and got into the set. There, they heard Dixon was using music-based mind control to sell merchandise and planned to expand it at Justin's next concert. Unable to convince Amy and Sticks, Sonic and his band had a sing-off with Justin at his concert to find the frequency to break the mind control with Tails' Measure-o-meter. Forming Dude-itude, Sonic and his crew freed everyone's will with their power rock ballet. Later, Sonic had a wheelbarrow race with Knuckles before fighting Eggman's Decimator Bot with his team to save Leroy the Turtle, when he noticed Tails acting absent. Seeing that Tails had a crush on Zooey, whom he needed help talking to, Sonic advised Tails to play it cool by demonstrating it with Comedy Chimp whom he had hired. However, Sonic's idea did not work. When Eggman attacked again though, Sonic and his crew stayed back on Tails' order and watched proudly as Tails stopped Eggman while winning over Zooey in his own way.
Having convinced Amy to let them look after her house while she was gone, Sonic and Knuckles accidently ruined her couch, so they joined Bro-Down Showdown to win a new one. Unfortunately, Sonic got paired up with Eggman and had to compete against an envious Knuckles. During the show, Obliterator Bot attacked the Village, but Sonic could not fight it without getting disqualified, as Eggman had planned all along. Regardless, Sonic helped Knuckles stop the robot when it was about to kill the echidna. Fortunately, a stray missile from the robot destroyed Amy's couch, removing any evidence of Sonic and Knuckles' mess. During a photoshoot Team Sonic watched, Knuckles became famed as "Trash Can Head Guy." While Sonic enjoyed the benefits of being a celebrity's friend, he worried about Knuckles' growing ego when the echidna became the host of the Comedy Chimp Show. Sonic's fears would be confirmed when Eggman attacked the set, having been sent there by an envious Comedy Chimp. Sonic thus rallied his friends to Knuckles' aid. While protecting Knuckles, the echidna came to help them and renounced his fame in favor of his team, to Sonic's approval.
After a trip to Meh Burger, Sonic, Knuckles and Amy met Perci who had a biking accident. Enamored by Perci, Sonic fought with Knuckles over helping her until they took her to Tails' Workshop to fix her bike. As Sonic tried doing Perci's work, he squabbled with his team over pampering her while the workshop caught on fire. After quenching the fire, Tails arrived, and Sonic gave his personal explanation for the mess before Perci corrected it. As Tails realized his security system caused the fire though, Sonic left, guilt-free.
Meeting at a crime scene at Eggman's, Sonic was accused of stealing Eggman's Particle Accelerator, and soon other things, so Sonic fled to clear his name. Getting a new identity and a job at a warehouse, Sonic located the real thief, although he first had to help make an elixir for his injured coworker Earl. With Knuckles coming to aid him, Sonic faced the real thief, revealed to be Metal Sonic. Despite Metal using Eggman's device against him, Sonic beat his rival and returned the stolen goods. However, Sonic was still nearly arrested until Earl brought the inert Metal Sonic, proving Eggman was behind it. When Sonic saw Tails display his Super Antenna, he inadvertently inspired Knuckles to begin inventing. Later, Sonic came to the Robot Battle Royale after Knuckles got Tails to compete with him. There, Eggman won the tournament by seizing Tails' robot-controlling Hypnobot in the finals, before using it to take over Tails' inventions. While Sonic fought Eggman's forces, Tails got Hypnobot back and used it to make Eggman retreat. As Sonic suggested using Hypnobot as a defense against Eggman though, it was blown up by a stray robot.
During a heatwave, Team Sonic tried to stay cool while fighting super-charged Badniks. When the latter began acting haywire, Team Sonic went to check on Eggman and saw he had captured the Archipelago Homeowners Association to avoid eviction, whom Sonic freed. After Eggman and the association worked things out, Team Sonic left. Sonic and co. later learned Amy was into Fuzzy Puppies and ridiculed her, before resuming their routines and Eggman fights. Noticing Amy's recent absence though, the team spied on Amy and learned she and Eggman were "Fuzzy Puppy buddies". Suspicious of Eggman, Sonic had his team watch them at Puppy Con where they stopped a rockslide seemingly caused by the Lightning Bolts, but then learned it was a distraction Eggman staged while he stole a rare game piece. However, Amy defused the situation without Sonic's aid.
After Team Sonic foiled Eggman's plans again, Sonic agreed to his demands for a fair fight by having the team face him one-on-one. Hearing the others got fooled by Eggman, Sonic snidely faced the doctor himself, only to be caught with gear Eggman had stolen from his team. Fortunately, Sonic's friends came to his rescue, and by working together by switching out when needed to keep their deal, they defeated Eggman. After snarking though, Sonic was left in a cage with Eggman by his team for a while. When Team Sonic beat Eggman for the millionth time, they received the Greatest Role Model of All Time Award. However, the team's horsing around made the mayor hire D.B. Platypus to make them better role models, who got Sonic and his team to follow strict rules that made Sticks leave. As the team later tried to stop Eggman's theft of a trophy though, Platypus prohibited from using violence, leaving them helpless until Sticks returned and got rid of Platypus and the audience. Team Sonic could thus return to beating Eggman in their old way.
While stuck in Amy's House during a storm, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Sticks drove Amy nuts with their antics. When Sonic found Amy's secret script for A Rose Without Thorns, the team got mad at Amy for her portrayals of them in it. With Amy mad at them for reading her stuff, the team fell apart as they all began arguing. Though Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Sticks reconciled after a fight, Amy stayed mad since they had trashed her house, so Sonic had them put up Amy's play for her as an apology. While it worked, Sonic took those at the play to Amy's House as a storm began. Sonic later had a stay-awake challenge with Knuckles which he won when Knuckles was inspired to make amends to Charlie. As Charlie became a villain and started to bully Knuckles with an Ancient weapon, Sonic and his team convinced Knuckles to beat Charlie when he refused to do Charlie more harm; afterwards, the team joined Knuckles for a snack.
When Team Sonic helped Amy built a bookcase, they got attacked by Team Eggman, Eggman's league of villains. As Team Sonic got separated by Team Eggman, Sonic was left to fight Eggman, Giant Robot and Charlie. Fighting smarter, Sonic was on the verge of winning when Shadow the Hedgehog intervened. Although Sonic was nearly destroyed by Shadow, he managed to beat him when Eggman distracted him. As Shadow left to fight another day, Sonic reunited with his team to play ball with Eggman as payback.
When Sonic and crew came to movie star Tommy Thunder's new movie promotion, they stopped Eggman's attack on a baker, inspiring Tommy to observe Sonic's heroics for his next role. Though refusing to have an egomaniac around, Sonic was persuaded. Still, Sonic was annoyed by Tommy's method acting and how he took credit for his team's next victory over the Weasel Bandits. Regardless, Sonic beat Eggman's forces when Tommy made them attack him and covered for Tommy's cowardice by giving him credit for his actions, not wanting to let down Tommy's fans, earning him his team's praise. Hearing later from Eggman that an asteroid would hit the earth and destroy civilization, Sonic and Tails' suggestion to stop the asteroid when they had it confirmed were ignored by the officials who were focused on buying spots in a bunker that Eggman was selling. After Team Sonic build Tails' Solar Convergence Device and Sonic acquired the Egg Rocket (since Eggman wanted the asteroid to hit), Sonic was forced to let the better-suited Knuckles go into space to bump the asteroid off-course with the SCD. However, when Knuckles shattered the asteroid instead, thus making its pieces rain down on them, Sonic gladly sped around the island and used Amy's Hammer to deflect the pieces.
While with his friends, Sonic listened to Sticks' frustrations with fluff news. Soon after, he got Sticks to start her own podcast (which Sonic would hear) when she sought to speak truth to power. Sonic would later quell a village revolt while with Amy and Knuckles. He also saw the power-angry villagers destroy Eggman's latest contraption for him when Eggman showed it to everyone. One day, while letting his team conduct (painful) experiments to boost his speed, Sonic left his plane of existence when going too fast with Tails' Ultrasonic Speed Amplifier. Getting his bearings, Sonic visited Eggman's lair (thinking Eggman was behind this) before his team contacted him, just as Eggman used Sonic's absence to attack the Village. Tails soon entered Sonic's plane to save him, and, with Sonic's speed, the two returned home in time for Sonic to help his team defeat Eggman's forces.
After giving a career speech to the local youth on Career Day, Sonic met Mark the Tapir, his biggest fan. Ignoring his team's concerns about Mark's obsessive behavior when introducing him, Sonic made him his assistant to handle minor tasks while he did heroics like battling Charlie. However, Mark would injure Sonic on a trip to a movie and trap him in his cabin so they could spent all their time together. Though Mark caught Sonic's friends too when they came for him, the heroes soon broke free and beat Mark. Still, Sonic got some minor fan-phobia from the experience. Following their victory over Vacuum Bot, Sonic was inspired by Eggman to bet with Tails that the fox could not catch him, and the loser had to perform at Meh Burger Karaoke Night. While the over-competitive Sonic easily dodged Tails' first traps (which caught his friends instead), he got caught by Tails' final trap, only for Eggman to attack him while he was helpless. Fortunately, Sonic was saved by his team, and together they beat Eggman. Sonic then apologized for his behavior to Tails, although he still had him perform at Meh Burger (despite losing their bet).
After beating Eggman again, Sonic and co. noticed seismic activity out at sea. There, they found Eggman generating a tidal wave underwater to destroy the Village. Afraid of water, Sonic stalled his team's mission until his team forced him into the sea with the aid of Soar the Eagle's life-coaching. While undersea, Sonic struggled and was nearly downed by a Crab Bot when they faced Eggman. Thanks to his team though, Sonic survived, and used Eggman's new Shark Bots to redirect the Wave Machine. Back home though, Sonic admitted his aquaphobia was worse than ever. When Dreamcaster subtly hypnotized him through TV, Sonic was influenced to not believe Sticks' story about seeing Dreamcaster. As Sticks then disturbed the Village with her story on TV, Dreamcaster made Sonic and co. arrest her for breaking into the studio. Sonic soon after became Eggman's zombie slave, who had him and the hypnotized villagers build a world-controlling satellite. He would later attack Sticks when she came to the rescue, but was freed by her with tin foil hats. With the team restored, Sonic and co. freed the villagers and stopped Eggman's plan.
Getting introduced to Tails' new defense for the Village when Tails repelled Eggman with it, Sonic and co. beat Eggman and his Scorpion Bots at Tails' trophy ceremony when Eggman got past the defense in his Egg Tank and used it to attack the Village. Sonic then tried keeping the villagers from shaming Tails. Back at his shack, Sonic took an odd-acting Tails home when he visited, where he met four dimwitted Tails copies. Realizing Tails had split himself, Team Sonic made more copies when trying to remerge them. Gathering the runaway copies, Sonic helped Amy, Sticks and Eggman retrieve those in Eggmans lair. In turn, Eggman helped fuse the copies back into the real Tails. After defeating Eggman's Egg Tank again, Sonic would deny Orbot and Cubot a trip home on the Blue Force One and later go to Eggman's lair with Amy to rescue some villagers he saw Eggman bring with him, only to learn they were his new employees. Sonic soon after stopped Eggman from destroying the Ice Cream Vendor's cart by scaring off his new minions.
Having stopped Eggman's attack on the Fuzzy Puppy Warehouse alongside his team, Sonic had a picnic with Amy which was ruined by a storm Orbot created. Sonic later united with his team to protect City Hall from Orbot (now an independent villain) and his forces. This battle ended when Orbot destroyed the new villain permit's records and Orbot was restored as Eggman's lackey. Sonic then cleared things up with Eggman and his theft of Tails' invention. Sonic and co. would later help Knuckles recover from the amnesia he got while they fought off Eggman's latest attack. As Knuckles recalled that he was the last of kind, Sonic would watch him try to find a foster family. Sonic and his team later had to fight both Knuckles and Charlie after Knuckles joined Charlie and Belinda's family and became a villain. Thankfully, Knuckles would rejoin his team and help beat Charlie, and Sonic assured him afterwards that Team Sonic was his family.
While playing Jungle Predator, Sonic and co. found a mech suit in an airtight Ancient ruin. Claiming the mech suit, Sonic used it to break his team out of the ruin when Eggman trapped them there and beat Eggman's backup, although he nearly killed Eggman with it. Staying in the mech suit, Sonic soon got taken over by its vile systems. Misreading his team's warnings, Sonic joined Eggman and strong-armed the Village with him. When Eggman sought to betray him though, Sonic hunted Eggman down and took him out. As he threatened the mayor, Sonic's team came and rendered his mech suit benign. Now free, Sonic chose to keep his mech suit, just in case. Having gotten Tomatopotamus 2, Sonic played on it with his team for hours until Knuckles beat him. Having promised chili dogs if he lost, Sonic went for some when Eggman attacked him with FiendBot. Amidst their fight, Sonic's heroism made FiendBot betray Eggman to befriend Sonic. With FiendBot following him, Sonic would ultimately let him stay and vouch for FiendBot when his team met him. Later, Sonic and co. fought Eggman, during which FiendBot helped beat Eggman and took a laser blast for Sonic. Sonic thus gave up his video game so Tails could fix him. Making FiendBot a part of the team, Team Sonic gave him a home with the Cubot prototypes, whom he could protect.
Having stopped Eggman's search for Ancient tech, Sonic and co. would investigate some robberies. Finding the thief to be Og, a friendly Froglodyte just seeking a new life on the surface, Sonic suspected Og was a spy out to free his kind. Sonic thus watched Og, only to pass him onto Tails when Og annoyed him. When other Froglodytes later invaded the Village, Sonic's suspicion about Og got debunked when he faced him. As the horde swarmed Sonic and co. when they later fought them, Og would help the team reseal the evil frogs underground. Afterwards, Sonic made up with Og, who would leave to get his own pad. Sonic and co. later came to an edition of the Comedy Chimp Show, where Knuckles won a lamp. The next day, Sonic saw Knuckles had gotten a house for his lamp. Sonic spent the next days battling Eggman with his team while Knuckles worked two full-time jobs to pay his house fees. Sonic was thus proud when he wanted to quit one of them. When Knuckles kept his jobs though, only to lose them when trying to see to them and the team, Sonic and co. learned his landlord T.W. Barker was strong-arming him, and helped revoke Knuckles' contract and house.
When the Village had a power outage, Sonic and his team investigated its cause. Finding Eggman innocent, they interrogated Mayor Fink and learned the town's power source (the Meroke Crystal) had died out. As such, Sonic and his team followed Fink's directions into the mountains (during which Sonic brought in the Blue Force One) to get a new crystal from a deadly temple built by the Ancients, where they solved the riddles of the place and its guardians thanks to Knuckles' simple thinking. Claiming the crystal, the team got it to the Village in time to restore order. At a town meeting, Sonic learned that their village was named after Sticks' evil ancestor, Jebediah Badger. Eventually wanting the town renamed, he unwillingly accepted a referendum between Amy and Eggman's name propositions at a new meeting. After voting at the referendum however, which Eggman used to get elected as Village leader, Sonic found himself and his team legally unable to stop Eggman's plan to destroy the Village. Thanks to Amy and Sticks though, who found a way to remove Eggman from power, Sonic could help defeat Eggman, after which Sticks renamed the Village (albeit not after Sonic, as he assumed).
After Sonic kept Eggman from destroying Meh Burger, which had gotten new robot employees (courtesy of Eggman) when he returned, Sonic saw Dave the Intern lose his job to one of the robot employees in a contest. Upon attenting the reopening of the improved Meh Burger with his team (minus Sticks) however, Sonic and the villagers got trapped in a force-field and sent towards space in Meh Burger by Eggman. Contacting Sticks, Sonic and his trapped crew conducted a mid-air rescue of themselves and the villagers with the aid of Sticks and Dave (whom Sticks recruited) while returning Meh Burger to the surface. Sonic subsequently saw Meh Burger return to normal. After Team Sonic stopped Eggman and his robots' theft of the Fregosi Sapphire at its unveiling, Sonic was alarmed when Amy adopted a Bee Bot named Bea. As Sonic and co. tried to comfort Amy after Eggman took Bea, Eggman came and used Bea alongside Bee Bot look-alikes (which kept Team Sonic from hurting them) to take the Fregosi Sapphire from Knuckles. Facing Eggman and his Bee Bots without Amy, Sonic and co. fought a Fregosi Sapphire-powered Mega Bot until Amy came and helped spot Bea and beat Mega Bot when it shot Bea. With their gem secured, Sonic saw Tails fix Bea.
Having visited the Science Fair Awards, Sonic would come to help his team foil an Eggman attack. He soon after got persuaded by Eggman's new Mombot to have playdates with Eggman, which Mombot set up to make them friends. Having confided in Tails regarding his suspicions about this, Sonic nonetheless enjoyed seeing Eggman get humiliated due to Mombot during their playdates (with Amy and Sticks eventually joining them). Sonic later declined Tails' offer to observe the stars when seeing Knuckles' new hangout. Regardless, he was proud of Tails and praised him when he seemingly proved Muckfoot's existence with a photo. Sonic took part in the ensuring Muckfoot Mania, but Tails soon told him that "Muckfoot" was just a muddy Knuckles and that Knuckles had been caught by Barker, who wanted Muckfoot as his attraction. Sonic and co. thus faced Barker on his Muckfoot world tour, where Sonic beat Barker and his allies (Eggman and his lackeys included) by feeding them sleepwalk-inducing berries, and saved Knuckles. Sonic then stood by Tails as he told the truth about Muckfoot to the public. Sonic soon after came to see Tails demonstrate his Build-it Box by materializing a small Ms. Tomatopotamus. Taming Ms. Tomatopotamus, Sonic and co. would stop an Eggman attack before focusing on their hippo. After she suddenly grew however, the gang discovered that Nominatus, Beta and Retro had hijacked the Build-it Box. While Tails and Knuckles went to question their suspect Eggman, Sonic, Amy and Sticks faced the thieves as they used the Build-it Box to materialize an army to conquer the planet with. With Ms. Tomatopotamus's aid, and the timely support of Eggman and his Badniks however, Sonic and his united crew stopped the evil trio, who got shrunk and imprisoned by Eggman.
When Team Sonic was on the beach, Eggman attacked them when Sonic upset him. Hogging the fight, Sonic got chided as a poor teammate by his team after the fight. He later fought and beat Decimator Bot, during which Steve Eggman saved him. As thanks, Sonic had Steve join Team Sonic, without informing his team. Telling his peeved group this at lunch, Sonic had Steve help him and the team save some Gogobas on a mission. However, Sonic soon found his team disbanding around him due to internal disputes, making him regret his behavior. Now alone, Sonic tried to stop Eggman and Steve from wrecking the Village. There, they revealed that Steve was a shapeshifting robot who made Team Sonic's disband. Fortunately, Sonic's reformed team came to his rescue and together they beat the villains. Vacated from his shack by the ESC while a widabit used it for its courting ritual, Sonic moved in with Tails, but they soon got tired of each other. After this came out at the next team lunch, Sonic, Tails and Amy tried advancing the widabit's ritual after Tails found it a mate with a fake mating call, but the beasts kept refusing each other. Sonic later joined his team when Eggman attacked, but ESC's Fastidious Beaver halted their fight when a widabit arrived, just as more widabits, attracted by Tails' fake call, ran through the Village to the shack. After Sonic saved a bystander from the stampede, he and his team located a fiftieth widabit to join those at his shack, which would let Sonic relocate them. Making up, Sonic and Tails got the widabit to the shack. However, two widabits' courting ritual made Sonic delay the relocation for a week.
When Sonic and co. held a charity car wash, Eggman attacked them with his Badniks when he complained about their service. Team Sonic easily beat the Badniks, but lost when Mighton and Bolts appeared and beat the team for Eggman. After Eggman left with his new allies, Sonic investigated these robots' origins with his team. Finding a spaceship, they discovered the robots were not of this world. Orbot and Cubot later came and told Sonic and co. that Eggman held Mighton and Bolts captive in his lair. Saving Mighton and Bolts after a battle in the lair, Sonic and co. made peace with them before seeing the duo off after fixing their ship. Just then however, the Cubot prototypes attacked the group and shot Tails. Tails survived though, and Team Sonic subdued the prototypes. While Tails fixed the prototypes, Sonic learned that a malware signal from Morristown was controlling them, just as Amy called for help to save the Village, which was under attack from every robot around. Sonic and Tails thus left the infected Cubot prototypes under Leroy's watch when they awoke, and joined the fight in the Village. Seeing that the same signal was controlling the robots, Sonic and Tails left to stop it while their team kept the robots at bay. Heading to Morristown in Tails' Plane, Sonic and Tails met some of its sentries and used one of their ships to sneak into the ruined city after a victorious dogfight.
Within Morristown, Sonic and Tails got attacked by infected robot locals until Bolts took them to the Robot Resistance's HQ, who revealed that a robot in the city was making the malware signal and had taken over the city. Since the resistance was vulnerable to this robot's signal, Sonic and Tails faced him for them, only to discover it was Hypnobot, now sentient and seeking to conquer the world as revenge for Tails' abandonment of him. Swarmed by robot slaves, the duo hunted Hypnobot, but when Tails could not destroy him, Sonic ended up injured. Still, Sonic kicked Hypnobot off of Morristown when he tried to finish Tails, ending his signal. While Bolts and Mighton picked them up from their fight and tended to them though, Sonic noticed that Tails blamed himself for this whole mess. Deciding to check out Morristown, Sonic and Tails were given a tour by Mighton and Bolts until Hypnobot returned with Eggman and his army to conquer the city. With the rest of Team Sonic coming to their aid, Sonic helped his allies fight the invaders until Hypnobot began turning Morristown's robots against them. Overwhelmed, the group retreated to a bunker where Bolts made malware-proof cyborg clones of Sonic and his team, who helped them overpower Eggman's army when they resumed the fight. At the end, Sonic was nearly killed by an infected Mighton, but was saved when Tails freed Mighton by destroying Hypnobot. With Eggman retreating afterward, Sonic bid farewell to a liberated Morristown (now renamed "Roboken") with the knowledge that his team's cyborg clones had the city covered.
Eventually catching fleas after helping his team stop Eggman's newest theft by beating his HugeBot, an itchy Sonic soon saw at Meh Burger that his team had fleas too. This led to Sonic and his crew getting quarantined by the authorities when they tried to enter the Male Fennec's shop, although the mayor soon freed them so they could stop Eggman's latest attack. It was then that they discovered that their fleas were remote-controlled Eggman robots. Unable to remove these FleaBots, Sonic faced Eggman with his team to make him stop them. As Eggman struck back using his FleaBots and Badniks, Sonic made Eggman drop his FleaBot remote, which the team used to make the FleaBots stick to Eggman for the time being. Foiling later the Lightning Bolt Society's newest scheme, Sonic and his Pin Dashers faced the Lightning Bowler Society in bowling after the latter became bowlers, and lost. Sour about this, Sonic arranged a rematch and had his team train constantly, but on the day of the match they heard that the Lightning Bowlers broke up. Wanting his rematch, Sonic had his team help gather the group, but then he and his friends had to stop Eggman when he came with his Mega. While Sonic and co. beat the Mega with the unintended help from the Lightning Bowlers when they tried to fight Team Sonic, the rematch got canceled when the Lightning Bowlers decided to become Lightning Bolts again, whom Sonic scared off.
Hearing from Tails that Dude-itude had been asked to play at a concert on the other side of the island, Sonic joined his band as they left for the concert in the Dude-Mobile with their gear. However, the crew's trip got sidetracked by tourist traps, stops, the police, and the Bike Chain Bandit, much to Sonic's annoyance. Eventually, they got jailed when they were mistaken for the Bike Chain Bandit's associates. With Salty's aid though, who had been jailed for the same reason as them, Sonic and co. broke out and cleared their names by catching the bandit after a wild chase and handing him over to the officer pursuing them. At the concert site however, Sonic learned that his band was a month too early for their concert, which Tails had overlooked. Sonic and co. soon after got lured into a trap by Eggman, but were able to beat his robots and get away. Hearing later that Eggman had turned his lair into a hotel to pay a fee, Sonic checked in there with his team to keep an eye on Eggman's plans. Eventually, Team Sonic and the guests got trapped when Eggman took them hostage for a scheme, but Sticks, who was not among them, freed them. Sonic and his team then fought Eggman's robots. However, Sonic would indirectly activate Eggman's Doomsday Device, which blew up Eggman's lair, but also liberated them and the guests.
When local gossip revealed that Dr. Eggman was no doctor, Sonic would see him as an even greater joke. He thus joined the villagers in mocking Eggman during the scientist's next trip to the Village. Sonic went further by beating Eggman when he retaliated. For the next boring weeks where Eggman focused on getting a Ph.D., Sonic spent his free time goofing off with his friends. Though Sonic and co. stopped Eggman when he tried to rob a store, their fight lacked the usual spark. When Eggman did earn his doctorate, Sonic watched his graduation ceremony. Visiting later Barker's Haunted Forest with his team alongside Eggman, Sonic had a laugh seeing Eggman get traumatized by the props. He and Tails used this to mess with a fragile Eggman, but they soon took pity on him and had Barker show him that he had nothing to fear. When Eggman tried becoming Sonic's neighbor after giving Barker his properties when his lair seemed haunted though, Sonic showed Eggman that Barker had used him to get his lair for an attraction. Sonic and co. later got attacked by Barker, who blamed Sonic for ruining his scam. Thanks to Barker's strategies, Sonic had a hard time against the Badniks Barker used. However, he and his team were saved when Eggman reclaimed his properties from Barker. Sonic then proceeded to fight Eggman and his robots like always.
After beating Charlie, Sonic went to Meh Burger with his team where he saw Amy advise a despondent Eggman. Sonic and his team later found Gogoba Village when they got lost. There, the Gogoba Chief revealed that the Froglodytes had taken his people away to work in the mines. Guilt-tripped into saving the Gogobas, Sonic and co. entered the Froglodytes' caves and saw that the frogs were helping Eggman (whom they thought was a kingly figure) mine for the Tummel Crystal. Although the team got caught and put into labor, they escaped when Eggman found the crystal, allowing Sonic to expose Eggman as a fake to the Froglodytes. Eggman then tried using his crystal-powered MeBot, but Sonic beat him with his mech suit, earing him, much to hid dismay, the Froglodytes' praise. He and his team then got the Gogobas home. Sonic later had a game with his team, during which he disapproved of Knuckles' digging, when he saw Cubot, who had gone nuts and was flying around with a rampant Anti Gravity Ray, and Eggman arrive. With Cubot's gravity field picking up innocent villagers, Sonic and co. tried to rescue the villagers, only for Cubot to gain control of the Anti Gravity Ray. Cubot then began taking the villagers, Amy, Knuckles and Sticks into space to enlighten them. Sonic and Tails however, intercepted Cubot in the sky using Tails' Plane, and Sonic brought everyone down by reversing the Anti Gravity Ray with a knob provided by Orbot, who was among Cubot's victims. After removing the Anti Gravity Ray from Cubot though, Sonic and co. almost got crushed by the gravity it began to emit. With Sonic's approval though, Knuckles saved them by destroyed the device with his digging.
When their beloved rec center got closed, Sonic and co. tried saving it by filling out a petition, which the mayor dismissed. Concurrently, Eggman tried to get the rec center so he could trash it. Since only the winner of a sports game could get it, Sonic and Eggman arranged a soccer match. When Sonic later saw that they would face Team Cybonic, whom Eggman had recruited with mind-control, he accepted this once Eggman promised his team's freedom after the match. Sonic's team stood to lose however when Eggman made his team meaner (but dumber) while the teams practiced. At the match though, they won by exploiting Team Cybonic's stupidity, leading to the rec center's reopening. Sonic then helped freed Team Cybonic from the mind-control when the cyborgs attacked them, and together they got payback at Eggman. When Sonic later goofed off with Knuckles and Tails, they accidentally caused a tree to fall on Lady Walrus. With Lady Walrus too injured to watch her baby Chumley, Sonic and co. agreed to babysit Chumley while she recovered. However, this was no easy task for them, and Amy refused to help. When Eggman attacked the trio though, Chumley ended up helping them defeat him. Having seen what Chumley liked, Sonic and co. got the hang on babysitting him and had a good time. When Chumley vanished after they went to sleep though, Sonic and co. looked for him in vain before confronting Lady Walrus. Fortunately, Chumley appeared in time for them to return him to his mother, and Sonic resumed his earlier escapade with his friends, albeit with a small responsibility lesson in mind.
While racing Knuckles, Sonic got sent to a Sonic-less reality by Eggman and Morpho. After meeting Amy Rose, Sonic got put in jail when he mocked Lord Eggman, the evil ruler of Seaside Island. He was soon freed by Amy who took him to Sticks the Badger, who led a Rebellion against Eggman. After agreeing to help Sticks, Sonic formed a team made up of him, Amy, Sticks and Knuckles the Echidna to beat Lord Eggman. Sticks then had them attack Lord Eggman's Lair prematurely, where Sonic saw that his last recruit―the local Tails―served Lord Eggman. The crew then fought the Badniks Lord Eggman brought when alerted by Tails. Amidst this, Sonic got Tails to join him when he saved his life, and together the crew beat Lord Eggman. With their team now there to free the island, Sonic returned to his world and beat up Eggman and Morpho with his crew as payback. Another time at Tails', Sonic helped get Tails to make a big Build-it Box for making large and fun stuff after seeing the fox's measly use of a small one. With it, the crew made themselves cars. Getting over-competitive, Sonic and co. prepped their own car race, only to be forced to make it an official event by racing laws presented by the mayor. After eight months of permits, Sonic had his race against his team in his car, with locals like Eggman joining them, but crashed on the track. With the rest of Team Sonic crashing too and Eggman poised to win, Sonic, like his team, realized their erroneous ways and helped make a car from their own that he won the race with. However, all Sonic earned was a participation trophy.
While playing with his team, Sonic met Eggman who told him to add him on FriendSpace. Sonic refused at first, which made Eggman run off, but Tails convinced him to do it so he could spy on Eggman. However, Sonic soon got bombarded with notifications from Eggman. When they messed up his attempt to stop Barker's next scam, Sonic unfriended Eggman, prompting Eggman to make a chatroom named Scrambler which Sonic could not join. As everyone got into Scrambler, Sonic was left alienated from society, leaving him to ask Eggman for Scrambler access. After hearing Eggman's own grievances with Scrambler, Sonic was allowed into it, only for Eggman to unfriend him as payback and then delete Scrambler. Sonic later joined his team when Amy's Hammer vanished. Along the way, they beat Eggman when he got mad at them for accusing him of taking the hammer (which he did not). Sonic tried afterward to comfort a dismayed Amy, who hired Vector the Crocodile to find her hammer. Not wanting Vector to outshine him, Sonic became his partner. Their search led them to believe that Justin Beaver was the thief, but they saw he had an alibi when they faced him at his book club. The next clue they found however allowed Vector to find the hammer and pinpoint Wolf Sidekick as the thief, much to Sonic's dismay. Sonic was later recruited by Vector though, who thought Wolf had been framed. Together, they found out the real thief was Dixon, who wanted to get revenge on Justin for ruining his old career and then pin the blame on Wolf, and had him arrested.
When Sonic and his friends tried using Meh Burger's new delivery service to order take-out that would be free if not delivered within a certain time limit, their meal arrived many hours too later. As such, Sonic joined a focus group to review Meh Burger's service. Boasting he could handle any delivery in a flash, Sonic was persuaded to become Meh Burger's delivery boy with a chili dog salary. During his career, Sonic made several succesful deliveries, including to Eggman, who tried repeatedly to delay Sonic to get a free meal and humiliate him. After overcoming Eggman's last plan though, Sonic began to feel ill from his chili dogs and quit. Getting scammed by Eggman's online business later on, Sonic and co. faced Eggman in his lair. During the subsequent fight, a malfunction in the HQ room made the lair's sorting system send Sonic's crew, Eggman and Orbot to other rooms. Although Sonic kept himself and Cubot in the HQ room, he wound up triggering the lair's lockdown protocol, trapping them in the room. While Sonic worked on the lair's console, he and Cubot got a warning from the others in morse code through pipes that said that the lair's Mootonium was about to explode. With Cubot translating the instructions on how to undo the lockdown, Sonic got himself and everyone else out of the lair before it exploded.
Coming under attack by Bee Bots later on, Sonic and co. trapped them in a cave when Orbot and Cubot proved unable to call off the Bee Bots without Eggman (who was on vacation). Some time after, Sonic saw Tails had been merged with a straggler Bee Bot by his Matter Transporter. Sonic and co. tried at first to figure out how to fix Tails, but then had to take care of a rescue mission. Afterward, Tails chose to remain as he was. However, Sonic soon saw Tails get corrupted by his Bee Bot half, which made Tails use the imprisoned Bee Bots to attack Team Sonic, who fell back after seeing Tails get hurt for every Bee Bot they beat. Sonic later had Eggman set the Matter Transporter to cure Tails, whom Sonic lured out while in a sunflower suit Eggman got him to wear. Sonic and co. then began beating Bee Bots to weaken Tails, which allowed them to return him to normal.
The Big Boom
On the beach, Sonic had a fight with Dr. Eggman in his Big Boy until Tails, Knuckles and Amy arrived and helped bring the robot down, forcing Eggman to retreat. No sooner, Sticks arrived and told them Tails' house had been robbed. Sticks took Sonic and the gang to Tails' house, and they discovered that the whole house was gone: what Sticks meant was that Tails' house had been stolen, and she explains that a "cyborg rock golem" rose up from the ground and left with it. Suspecting it was one of Eggman's creations, Sonic tried making a plan when Sticks seemingly caught the scent of the robot. Though it turned out Sticks was only smelling the grass, the group still found the Rock-cyborg by following its footprints and Sonic got his friends to set up an ambush while he lead the robot to them. The others made the robot fall over, allowing Sonic to destroy it and make Tails' house fall on its original foundation.
Not long after, Eggman returned in the Big Boy and Sonic, Tails, Amy and Sticks engaged the doctor. Amidst the fight, Sonic was knocked away and trapped in a small cage by Knuckles who claimed he was now working with Eggman because he was through with Amy criticizing him. Sonic's whole team was soon captured and taken into the Big Boy's cargo hold. While Sonic went stir crazy, Knuckles revealed he pretended to work for Eggman to fool him before going after the doctor to free them. Sonic was soon after freed by Sticks and in a rush over freedom, he broke the team out of the Big Boy while Knuckles made Eggman retreat. After they had dealt with the stray Orbot and Cubot however, Sonic found Amy in a panic over having lost her hammer. Back at Amy's House, Sonic, Tails and Knuckles failed to calm Amy down, so Sticks sent them out to find Amy's Hammer. After looking everywhere on the island without luck, Sonic and Tails returned to Amy when her hammer suddenly fell into Sonic's hand. Sonic received Amy's heartfelt thanks and he returned home for the night.
For a climatic battle with the Big Boy, Team Sonic agreed to battle Eggman, only for Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy to forget about it. Later, Eggman, Orbot and Cubot tracked them down in the Big Boy, where Sonic admitted their slip up, and Team Sonic fought Eggman, but found themselves at a disadvantage against the upgraded Big Boy. Coming to their aid was Sticks, who claimed she had found an all-powerful weapon: the Rock of Justice. Exasperated, Sonic did not believe a rock could help and continued the fight. However, Sticks saved them with the Rock of Justice by throwing it at the Big Boy, causing it to ricochet into the mech and destroy it. After scaring off Eggman and his lackeys, Sonic congratulated Sticks and the Rock of Justice, only to hear that the weapon's power had been used up, and Sonic fell a tear at their loss.
Boom Shaka-laka and Worlds Unite
In the Village Center, Sonic kept an eye on Dr. Eggman as he failed to sell a bridge and later gain the villagers' trust. As Sonic mocked him, Eggman called in his minions which Sonic and his team quickly beat, though Eggman got away. Later at Meh Burger, Team Sonic met Eggman again who asked for aid to operate his rides at the Eggtoberfest, which Eggman hoped to gain the villagers' trust with. Sonic complied, if only to keep an eye on Eggman. Not long after, the villagers were attacked by Eggman's army which Sonic and his team destroyed, earning them the villagers' hailing.
As Sonic was attacked by Eggman's Courier Robot, his team came to his defense. The Courier Robot subsequently became a video phone which Eggman contacted them with, and Eggman challenged them to a fair go-kart race in the Go-kart Pan-island Grand Prix. After a little persuasion, Sonic accepted the challenge on the team's behalf, but he was unable to convince Sticks to join, who was sure it was a trap. On the day of the Grand Prix, in go-karts provided by Eggman, Sonic and his team took the lead as the race started, but when Sonic neared the home stretch while unaware that he was being scanned, he noticed his friends had left the race. As he then crossed a bridge, Eggman triggered a trap that made Sonic fall into the ravine below. Fortunately, Tails, Knuckles and Amy, who were also victims to Eggman's traps, saved him just in time, but as they prepared to get Eggman, Sonic convinced them to wait for that until he had proven that he could beat the doctor fair and square in his own race.
With some help from Knuckles, Sonic got back on the road in his go-kart and soon took the lead despite Eggman's numerous attempts to stop him with traps, but as he neared the finish line, where Sticks was waiting, Eggman attacked with his Spider-Kart and kept Sonic from completing the race. However, Sonic's friends then arrived in Tails' Plane and kept Eggman occupied, which allowed Sonic to cross the finish line and win the race on his own terms. He then joined his team in trashing the Spider-Kart, thus driving Eggman in retreat. Sonic then expressed his gratitude to his team, unaware of where Sticks had gone during the fight. When Sticks returned, Sonic and team joined her at a campfire and listened to her absurd story about fighting an evil robot alongside an interdimensional army. Needlessly, Sonic humored Sticks by supporting her story with how he always turned gold and flew around.
After weeks of beating Eggman's MeBot models, Sonic was called in by Eggman to stop a rampaging gorilla he had ordered. However, Sonic discovered the gorilla, named Kyle the Gorilla, was actually a good guy and let his stay with him rather than with Eggman. When Kyle's clumsiness proved too much to live with though, Sonic took Tails' advice and tried getting Kyle a job. After several attempts, Sonic got Kyle in on the Comedy Chimp Show where he fit in perfectly in the slapstick segments. Sonic later tried taking a nap, but was disturbed by Kyle who convinced Sonic to let him try a new (cliché) bit on him, unaware that Eggman was watching.
Other game appearances
Sonic makes a minor appearance in Sonic Runners alongside his main counterparts, Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic. Here, he is simply featured on the 2016 "Birthday at Windy Hill" event's notification image.
Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom
In later updates to the game, Sonic makes an appearance on the High Score menu, holding the first place with a score of 1,000,000 points.
Much like the wind, Sonic is free-spirited and always on the move. He has a passion for adventure and is very much a thrill-seeker, always looking for the next thrill, challenge, and triumph. For Sonic, speed is a way of life; he runs fast, thinks fast, and even eats fast. Being addicted to speed and action, Sonic gets bored and restless during extended times of peace. In fact, Sonic cannot process the aspect of being restricted and being unable to move around very much makes him extremely stir crazy. He acts on instinct and lives in the moment, though he is very impatient, impulsive and tends to run headlong into trouble without a plan. While he can be shortsighted of others' feelings (making him blunt, honest, and rude to a fault), his heart is nevertheless always in the right place.
Sonic's typical driving force is his immensely large, self-obsessed ego, yet his demeanor is normally laid-back, cool and carefree. Possessing a snarky tongue and sassy attitude, he is cocky, brash, quick-witted and often jokes around even in dire situations. He likewise has a playful, albeit never mean-spirited, arrogance about him and likes to play small pranks. When the situation calls for it though, Sonic can be serious and will immediately rush to aid those in dire need. Always on the heroic side of things, Sonic is very benevolent with a strong sense of honor, justice and fair play, being fully committed to helping out those in need at all times. Sonic also does not back down or give up, because he has an unwavering belief and faith in himself and his abilities. Sonic is also noted to be very courageous. However, he suffers from a severe case of aquaphobia which has only worsened with time. He is also a bit of a slop at times, and chores do not sit well with him.
While he often acts like he does not care, Sonic is rather protective of his image. To this end, he will get rid of any documentation and preferably dodge any performance that does not show him looking cool, even if it means his friends will look bad. He is likewise uncomfortable about being open about his feelings and actively tries to dodge such conversations, presumably because he considers them uncool. However, he is willing to lower his guard for the sake of his friends. Sonic can also get rather over-competitive when contending with another, prompting him to let things get way out of hand out of overconfidence. In case he loses a competition, Sonic becomes obsessed and borderline crazy about settling the score with his opponent, as he cannot accept the fact that he can actually lose. Despite having his own fair share of quirks and willing to fool around just for the sake of it though, Sonic is very grounded and has a profound common sense that often makes him the "straight man" amongst his friends.
Though rather selfless when saving the Village, Sonic does come off as somewhat sensitive about his hero-status, becoming extremely jealous, defensive, and frustrated whenever someone else rivals his fame, steals the spotlight or when the civilians turn against him. As such, when deprived of the chance to be the hero, Sonic gladly springs into action when he gets the opportunity to save the day in the end. This mindset even led to him temporarily retiring due to how ungrateful the citizens were for his efforts. Even so, when the times really call for it, Sonic will forgo his opinions to help those in need. Sonic is also a true chili dog enthusiast who can identify the ingredients of a chili dog with one bite.
Sonic is noted to be strongly loyal towards his friends. Though he does not always show that he enjoys others' company (mainly because he finds himself too cool for that), he nonetheless cares deeply for his friends and will do anything for them. Early on though, Sonic was somewhat of a loner and cynical. While he was willing to work with his friends in times of need, he would show more interest in going out alone and would even take credit for what the team did collectively. In time though, Sonic grew to see how his team made him stronger and realized that his friends were his strength. Since then, Sonic has become a much more admirable team leader, being quick to ask for help and acknowledge their collective contributions. Regardless, Sonic's confidence and impatience tends to get in the way of his team spirit, as he sometimes feels that things will get done more quickly if he handles them alone. This attitude also makes him kind of snarky and boastful in the faces of his friends at times. Although Sonic usually defends his actions in such cases, he is nonetheless capable of admitting he was wrong in such situations. He also strongly believes in the friendship his team shares and will never do anything to compromise it; Tails in particular has noted that Sonic will never give up on his friends, "no matter how bad things [get]."
Powers and abilities
Sonic's most notable skill is his super speed, allowing him to move and think faster than Mach 1. Though his exact top speed is unknown, he is credited as the world's fastest hedgehog and even the fastest being in his universe; he can effortlessly create a sonic boom, run along the surface of water, walls and ceilings, outspeed lasers, start small fires from friction by running on the ground, and create strong enough gusts when taking off to knock over boulders. His speed is so great that he can run a trip that would take others thirty hours by car to make in a few seconds. Even the effects of the Slow Motion Machine, which slows everything down to a crawl, could only reduce his speed and mental processes to normal levels.
As far as stamina goes, Sonic's is seemingly limitless, as he claims he never gets tired. In line with his speed, Sonic has significant acrobatic skills and agility, sufficient enough to perform perfect synchronized mid-air movements. He also has extremely quick reflexes, being able to react instantly to dangers and perceive high speed movements in slow-motion, and has enhanced jumping skills, allowing him to jump very high into the air.
Sonic possesses significant physical strength, though not on the same level as Knuckles'. He can kick a robot hard enough to knock it through a rock wall, his spinning maneuvers can smash through walls, and he can punch with enough force to cause cracks and release shock waves, though it is debatable whether it is due to his super speed, his strength, or a combination of both. Additionally, Sonic can even run at maximum speed while weighted down by objects larger than him. Sonic is also shown to have incredible durability, having survived several laser blasts from powerful Destruction Troops which were meant to kill him.
Sonic's main offensive maneuver is his "spin attack", where he curls tightly into a concussive ball. In this stance, Sonic can damage, destroy and mow down obstacles or foes when in motion. One of his signature moves is the Spin Dash, a nearly unavoidable move where Sonic spins on the spot before blasting off at full speed which can destroy most foes with a single strike. Sonic has mastered this move to perfection, being able to use it with enough precision to weld metal fences together from friction. While not a strategist like Tails, Sonic has a very quick wit and has often come up with his own plans to take down his enemies. He is also a skilled combatant, and his fighting style relies on his footwork styles along with fast-strike tactics and quick maneuvers.
Sonic wields a Communicator, a multifunctional and waterproof smartwatch created by Tails. This device allows Sonic wide-ranged radio communication between similar devices. It can as well generate its own Enerbeam (an energy tether that can latch onto objects or form a makeshift whip/rope), run mobile apps, tell the time, interface with Sonic's tech-based equipment for remote operation, and assume other powers. It also comes with its own tracking device.
For opponents that require a little more muscle, Sonic has a mech suit from the Ancients that he found in some ruins. This mech suit makes Sonic much more powerful, granting him increased strength without sacrificing agility or swiftness. It is also highly durable, capable of high-speed flight, and comes equipped with force-fields and lasers. The mech suit initially had a chip that corrupted Sonic's personality the more he used the mech suit, but after the chip was removed, he can now fully control it.
Suffering from aquaphobia, Sonic is incapable of swimming and sinks in water. He is also unable to utilize his speed properly in certain environment (such as on smooth ice), although he has the Blue Force One for such situations.
Dr. Eggman is Sonic's arch nemesis and arch rival. The two of them have hated each other since they first laid eyes on one another, though their relationship is very complex. On one hand, Sonic has a strong dislike of the doctor and fights him on a weekly basis, though he does not really take account of him and teases him with jokes and sarcasm. On the other hand, when not battling, Sonic and Eggman keep a rather passive relationship where they let each other be nearby without seeking conflict. At times, the two have even been known to hang out together, though Sonic normally retains his general dislike and annoyance of the doctor. When Eggman claimed to be homeless, Sonic even allowed him to stay at Tails' home, though it was more on the grounds of proving himself the better person.
While Sonic is quite happy to let Eggman stew in the trouble he has made for himself, he always ends up saving Eggman since it is the right thing to do. Sonic also loves playing pranks on Eggman when he is an easy target. Still, Sonic does not hold complete animosity for Eggman, as he has been known to feel guilty when he takes things too far with him.
Ironically, Sonic knows a lot about Eggman's character and his preferences due to their frequent encounters, enough to let them get to the finals of Bro-Down Showdown. Because of his constant victories over him, Sonic has a tendency to underestimate Eggman and forget how dangerous he can be. When dealing with a common threat or problem, Sonic and Eggman are willing to put aside their differences and work together, even sometimes showing a sense of good-spirited comradery and well-oiled teamwork, though they both agree that they can never really be friends since they are arch enemies.
For all their opposing ways, Sonic and Eggman are ultimately co-dependent and need each other in their lives. While he does not mind Eggman leaving his life, Sonic finds things too boring for his taste without Eggman to fight, which makes him restless and paranoid. Similarly, without Sonic to challenge him, Eggman has no motivation to be a villain. For better or worse, their never-ending conflict is what drives them and keeps their lives balanced.
Miles "Tails" Prower
Sonic's best friend and most trusted companion is Miles "Tails" Prower, whom Sonic has described as "his main man and BFF". He shares a brotherly relationship with Tails and they are equal partners in Sonic's adventures. They are extremely close and both are willing to sacrifice their life for the other. Sonic knows in particular that Tails always has his back when he is in trouble; Sonic's faith in Tails is in fact so strong that even when he was dealing with an alternate version of Tails who worked for the enemy, he alone believed unconditionally that he was good guy. The both of them will likewise always be there for each other (or seek each other out) whenever one them needs support. One time, when he was wrongfully sued, Sonic even noted Tails was the one witness among his friends that he could rely on, underlining just how much trust he has in him above all others. Also, while Tails is his sidekick, Sonic will still show outmost pride in Tails and his accomplishments, even when they outshine himself. While Sonic appreciates Tails' support and unwavering loyalty however, he does not like it when Tails is patronizing him or gets too mushy.
Sonic and Tails often hang out or go on adventures together by themselves, unlike most other of Sonic's friends, showcasing just how close the two are. There is rarely strife between them, and they have proven themselves a near-perfect duo; both provides strengths to the other's weaknesses (Sonic handles the muscle while Tails handles the smarts) and neither of them would get far without the other's aid. In addition, they work well together in combat. Conversely, they are just as willing to engage in friendly competitions with each other simply for fun. However, their competitions may not always turn out well due to Sonic's overconfidence and Tails' zeal. Also, while Sonic and Tails enjoy each other's company, they are still very different people, and being together for too long tend to make them bicker; Tails himself has pointed out that while they are best friends, they are not the best of roommates. Regardless of whatever issues that may arise between them however, Sonic and Tails respect and care for each other so much that both of them are unable to hold a grudge at the other for long. They are also willing to share the blame when they know they are both at fault, and will always make up on a good note when they find themselves in a dispute. Even so though, Sonic is not above having Tails take his place in otherwise embarrassing situations, or playing a few harmless pranks on him.
Though he might put Tails in danger with his half-baked plans, Sonic cares very much for his well-being, and will take care of him whenever he behaves oddly. Sonic will also not hesitate to push himself beyond his limits to protect Tails; when Hypnobot tried to finish Tails, Sonic rushed to save him despite having an injured leg. At the same time, Sonic has been known to be overprotective of Tails, like when he fired Tails as his sidekick after a brutal battle so that he would not get hurt. Once Tails proved himself though, Sonic regained his faith in him and rehired him on the spot.
Amy Rose is another one of Sonic's close friends and teammates, although their relationship is complex. While Sonic at times acts confused about hints to Amy's crush on him, it has been hinted that he is aware of it. This ambiguousness does little to hurt their friendship and concentration, like when they searched for a Chaos Crystal together without Sonic struggling. Sonic is likewise completely comfortable about hanging out with Amy. However, like most of his teamates, he is very afraid of her temperament. Also, Sonic usually tries to ignore Amy's suggestions to be more emotionally open about their feelings.
Due to Amy's tendency to take charge, Sonic perceives Amy as extremely overbearing and bossy which brings her at odds with his own laid-back attitude. He is also not very fond of Amy's ideas for group activities. However, while Sonic sometimes acts inconsiderate to Amy, he still appreciates her as a friend and teammate, and will try making up with her whenever he has upset her. In fact, Sonic cannot stand watching Amy cry, and will willingly talk about their feelings (something which he is extremely reluctant about) if it will help Amy feel better.
Sonic often claims to have no interest in Amy's love life and is quick to avoid or deny any indication that he is in a relationship with her. This includes denying Amy was his girlfriend with suppressed anger when she was addressed as such by Dr. Eggman. He further insists when he shows that he cares for her that he and Amy are merely comrades-in-arms. Nonetheless, there are hints that indicate that Sonic may have some feelings for her deep down. For example, he brushed off his concerns in an embarrassed way when Knuckles teased that Amy was getting ready for a date, and said nothing when Dr. Eggman asked him about his "deal" with Amy. Most noticeably though, the Bro-Down Showdown buzzers called out Sonic for being wrong when he denied Amy being his girlfriend. Also, according to UT, Sonic cares about Amy's well-being.
Knuckles the Echidna
Knuckles the Echidna is another of Sonic's close friends and teammates. However, the two of them are opposites in many ways, with Sonic being sensible, cool, and snarky while Knuckles is goofy, dim-witted and always disagreeing with him. Sonic in particular likes to tease Knuckles and does not think he is the sharpest tool in the shed, viewing him as a simpleton that always messes up without his supervision.
Sonic and Knuckles share a mutual bond of respect, though it was not always like this. During their mission to stop Lyric, Sonic was often reprimanded by Knuckles for all the mishaps he caused. Over time though, Sonic slowly reconciled with Knuckles and eventually made up with him. Nowadays, Sonic and Knuckles are deep down the truest of friends (though they will never really admit it), referring to each others as "bros." Even when Knuckles turns against him, Sonic refuses to hurt him when it comes to blows. To Knuckles in particular, Sonic helps fill out the kind of loneliness he gets about being the last of his kind by being the family he longs for.
Sonic and Knuckles' friendship exhibits a unique dynamic compared to their other relationships: whereas Sonic is more formal around his other friends, he and Knuckles are much more relaxed and outgoing when together, often spending their time hanging out by roughhousing and goofing off with various extreme (and often foolish) activities. Akin to Tails, Sonic can also be very selfless for Knuckles' sake; even though it meant facing Amy's wrath, Sonic willingly forfeited his chances to avoid it in order to save Knuckles from Obliterator Bot.
Both Sonic and Knuckles have a friendly rivalry going on and they tend to compete with each other in all kinds of activities. Though Sonic normally remains cool about their rivalry since he usually wins, he rejects the idea of losing to Knuckles on purpose.
Sticks the Badger
Sticks the Badger is a member of Sonic's crew and one of his closest friends. The two are alike in the sense that they "go running into danger without a plan, a direction, or a clue," though it usually falls on Sonic to be the more sensible of them. Like his other friends, Sonic is normally unnerved by Sticks' paranoia and stays skeptical about her theories and judgement in general. Additionally, he feels very uncomfortable when he actually finds himself agreeing with her crackpot theories. He also once hesitated to tell her that Lyric had kidnapped Amy, showing a degree of fear for her outbursts. Nonetheless, Sonic accepts Sticks' quirks and will apologize for doubting her when he is proven wrong. Likewise, Sonic thinks she is a very nice person deep down.
Very loyal to Sticks, Sonic likes her penchant for tackling foes head-on and considers her a valued teammate. In spite of his personal dislikes, he will also agree to help Sticks with her tasks at hand, like being her escort to a gala and going pet shopping with her. Once though, he considered himself a better survival expert than Sticks until she put him in his place.
Due to his heroic actions, Sonic is well-known and beloved by the inhabitants of Hedgehog Village, and is highly respected for protecting them. At times (despite usually regarding him as a normal guy), they have been known to treat him like a celebrity of sorts, hosting a celebration after he (and his team) saved the village one million times, watching him with piqued interest whenever he makes a scene, constantly bringing him up on the news, and occasionally asking him for his autograph. At the same time, however, the villagers tend to be rather critical of Sonic, openly judging and shunning him for his behavior in public and his suspicion of Eggman when he appears innocent. When doing so, however, the villagers often take things too far, even going so far as to side with those who are against Sonic, and completely disregard his good deeds, usually leaving Sonic frustrated (one time to the point that he temporarily retired), though it usually takes no more than another act of heroism to win them back over. Though the rest of his team is often treated in a similar fashion, Sonic tends to take more of the backlash than anyone else.
Lightning Bolt Society
Despite being enemies, Sonic does not think highly about the Lightning Bolt Society. Like most others, he thinks they are a bunch of losers and hardly considers them a threat. Among this group, Sonic's most persistent foe is Dave the Intern who often tries to destroy him (when not serving him at Meh Burger), though Sonic hardly spares him a thought. Nevertheless, though Sonic often ignores their usually minor schemes, he will not hesitate to stop the Lightning Bolt Society whenever they stir up too much trouble.
Shadow the Hedgehog
Shadow the Hedgehog is Sonic's arch rival, who can match him in both speed, abilities and dashing looks. Outside physical similarities though, Shadow is the antithesis to all that Sonic is. Whereas Sonic is joyful, free-spirited and adventurous, Shadow is a brooding, serious and violently aggressive individual. While Sonic relies on his team and believes in teamwork, Shadow is a loner who only relies on himself.
Sonic and Shadow share a bitter arch-rivalry which goes way back. Between the two of them, Sonic is much more lucid about their rivalry, with Sonic approaching Shadow in his usual casual manner or being willing to walk away from him, whereas Shadow is quick to pick a fight. However, Sonic is easily angered by the way Shadow criticizes him for being weak, and they usually end up arguing when they strike a conversation. While deeming Shadow a "hard case", Sonic nonetheless believes he would be a great addition to Team Sonic, displaying great respect for Shadow's skills.
Lyric the Last Ancient
In Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, Sonic had a deep relationship with Lyric the Last Ancient, having been the one who stopped his plans a millennia ago via time-travel. Sonic himself viewed Lyric as a "slithering psycho." When first meeting Lyric after accidentally freeing him, Sonic was confused over Lyric's knowledge of him and his grudge at him (since Sonic had yet to stop him in the past). As he learned of his story with Lyric, Sonic became surprisingly determined to stop his plans to destroy the world, to the point where he would bear the responsibility alone since he had set Lyric loose. In the end though, Sonic saw he could not defeat Lyric alone and involved his team. Debunking Lyric's taunts of how his friends were his weakness in their final fight, Sonic beat Lyric with some aid and saved the world, redeeming himself for releasing Lyric.
In Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, Sonic had a less prominent, but still antagonistic relationship with Lyric. After Lyric kidnapped Amy, Sonic made it his personal mission to defeat Lyric and save Amy. Upon meeting him, Sonic was acknowledged as a worthy foe by Lyric, whom Sonic taunted with how he was unstoppable with a team behind him. In response, Lyric trapped Sonic's team. Defeating Lyric and saving his team, Sonic ensured his end as Shadow engaged him.
