Sonic 06

I know that Sonic 06 was a critical failure, but did it sell well? Tentomon22 (talk) 23:33, April 14, 2013 (UTC)

At least the Xbox 360 version sold enough to make it into Platinum Family Hits but not the PS3 version.OrbAdventures (talk) 00:41, April 18, 2013 (UTC)

Hey! 06 is a critical SUCESS!

Unused voice clips

Is it okay to add some unused voice clips for Sonic and the other characters?OrbAdventures (talk) 12:25, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

Add how? -- Supermorff (talk) 13:18, May 6, 2013 (UTC)
Well I mean the unused quotes actually. I could go to youtube to find for myself and add them to the memorable quotes section.OrbAdventures (talk) 11:05, May 7, 2013 (UTC) 

If they are unused, I don't see how they can be memorable quotes. -- Supermorff (talk) 12:29, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

Relationship status

I just want to know who's the closest Sonics ever been to a girl? (Not counting comic)

Hmm from the games community I don't wish to say Amy because there are some 'moments' of the two together but I don't think Sonic is 'open' in terms of romance or is willing to be near other females in general.OrbAdventures (talk) 23:34, May 7, 2013 (UTC)

However, I was thinking of Princess Elise from Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 considering some cutscenes of the two together.OrbAdventures (talk) 23:34, May 7, 2013 (UTC)

I doubt that. Her kiss was semi-bizzare Tentomon22 (talk) 13:22, May 19, 2013 (UTC)

Also, because the events of 06 got erased from existence canonically, Sonic wouldn't have been romantic with Elise anyway.OrbAdventures (talk) 02:51, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

No one is closer than silver and blaze nitrick

I think is Blaze sometimes, like in Sonic Rush or Sonic and the Black Knight, but I think than no other is more close, the most popular female Sonic Character is Amy, but Sonic isn't interested at all, I don't know how Amy have a lot of Fans!? And the only ones that I enjoy are Silvaze, but I think that's a rumor Deaven Pegasus (talk) 23:34, October 1, 2013 (UTC)

Sonic doesn't want to get into girls just yet. (GreatEggRobotnik (talk) 04:18, February 23, 2014 (UTC))

Shouldn't this discussion belong in the forums? What do relationships have to do with fixing the article? SeanWheeler (talk) 15:52, February 23, 2014 (UTC)

"No More Running Around!" Insult?

In the Progressive commercial where Sonic was featured, Flo tells him not to run around anymore. Should that be considered insulting to Sonic, knowing that he likes to run? Tentomon22 (talk) 13:22, May 19, 2013 (UTC)

Doesn't look insulting. Myself 123 13:27, May 19, 2013 (UTC)

We're talking about Sonic here, telling him not to run anymore is like telling McDonalds to stop selling hamburgers! Tentomon22 (talk) 13:29, May 19, 2013 (UTC)

Telling him not to run around for insurance, the whole thing's a metaphore, there's no point in overthinking it. Myself 123 13:32, May 19, 2013 (UTC)

OK, i was just irritated at what she said to him Tentomon22 (talk) 13:34, May 19, 2013 (UTC)

That he should stop running around for insurance? Ok. Myself 123 11:43, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

I mean i thought that she tells him to stop running in general. Tentomon22 (talk) 12:44, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

More Emotional?

Does anybody think that Sonic should be more emotional in more recent games? Tentomon22 (talk) 22:07, May 22, 2013 (UTC)

That really isn't something to talk about here, it should be on a forum or something. Myself 123 22:11, May 22, 2013 (UTC)

Where can i find the fourm? Tentomon22 (talk) 22:14, May 22, 2013 (UTC)

You can find it on the navigation tab. Myself 123 22:17, May 22, 2013 (UTC)

OK, Thanks!! Tentomon22 (talk) 22:20, May 22, 2013 (UTC)

Are sonic,shadow,knuckles,and silver cousins (nitrick)

Read their articles and you'll find the answer. Myself 123 21:48, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

Colors all are wrong

To the tune of reach for the stars. really, not teal blue? most classics have a light blue sonic, sonic adventure two's cg scenes has him light blue, heroes had a completely teal blue, shadow the hedgehog had cg teal, 06 in game had teal, sonic unleashed is teal, colors cg had teal, and looks like lost world cg is teal. someone fix that part up, unless they already have done so

06 Lover Neo

-,- Someone added that Sonic had feelings for Amy but SEGA never said anything about that any help?

besides fear, not much emotions! take that down. where is Genejs? havnt heard from him in a while

06 Lover Neo

split up the quotes?

i'm wondering if the quote section should be split up into 2 parts. one part for his lines like "yeah! sweet! that was tight! piece of cake! "and the other being his actual quotes.  -Crashyboe.

Did Sonic not turn 16? i mean, was that a FALSE birthday party in generations?

06 Lover Neo

Sonic's birthday

In Sonic Dash,they say that sonic's birthday is in 23 june.And my birthday is in 23 june too!

Heti123 (talk) 19:05, June 23, 2013 (UTC)Heti123

Sonic is the same age as me (if you age him in human years)

Shoutmon23ROCK 'N ROLLER!!!

Wait, shouldn't Sonic be 16 instead of 15 now? MrWii000 (talk) 02:59, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

No, Sonic is just officially labeled as being 15. Myself 123 03:04, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

Changing History Headings

Hello, Sonic News Network. Today I need to discuss a same nitpick I have with these video-game character pages; the history headings. While it is clear to tell that the headings are from events of the games (i.e. "You've Got The Wrong Hedgehog!" is Sonic Adventure 2), but it is difficult even for me to tell which heading goes for which game. I suggest we should replace the headings with the game title heading, as it can be a bit more convenient. BlueSpeeder (talk) 15:25, July 9, 2013 (UTC)

It was like that once. Then people began coming up with those section names, and then suddenly it was everywhere.Ultrasonic9000 (talk) 15:42, July 9, 2013 (UTC)
I never knew that. I guess we should just change it back? BlueSpeeder (talk) 15:47, July 9, 2013 (UTC)
Maybe. But if it was a problem, people would have done it a long time ago. I mean such a significant change would surely have been noticed by the big guys, yet they don't do anything. Also, if I recall correctly, I treid to undo it, but was reverted everytime. So, I just accepted it.Ultrasonic9000 (talk) 16:50, July 9, 2013 (UTC)
Maybe no one notices. BlueSpeeder (talk) 16:53, July 9, 2013 (UTC)
You can try, and I would accept it due to how more understandable it would become.Ultrasonic9000 (talk) 16:55, July 9, 2013 (UTC)

The idea that people would have already changed it if it was a problem is just not a good argument. If you want to change it, change it. -- Supermorff (talk) 17:13, July 9, 2013 (UTC)

I'm for it. I can't even think of a catchy title for having to write out Knuckles' involvement in 06. Mystic Orb: Who do you think I am? What do you want? 10:16, July 10, 2013 (UTC)

TALK – --SonAmy (talk) 21:57, July 10, 2013 (UTC)
Does Sonic exceed the light spectrum?


Sonic Lost World is basically kicked off by Sonic making an assumption over Eggmans activities. Rather than listen to Tails' full explanation and/or warning, Sonic charges in and kicks Eggmans conch-thing away, releasing the Deadly Six from Eggman's control and allowing them to attack both Eggman and Sonic n' Tails. I want to make note of Sonic's recklessness in his personality, but I'm not quite sure where to place it where it would be most relevant.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 06:44, August 12, 2013 (UTC)

Somewhere in between his "attitude" section in his Personality or a separate side-note at the end of his Personality section, as it's only been in one game. However, I prefer you wait before writing this down and view more cut-scenes once they are released to determine how reckless Sonic actually is. --Quack Quack Surnik 06:49, August 12, 2013 (UTC)
While I agree with quack on waiting for more info, I would put it somewhere around where they mention his impatience.Ultrasonic9000 (talk) 08:31, August 12, 2013 (UTC)
It's a little too soon. I prefer going through the whole plot of the game and it's cutscenes.--SlugDrones • (Contact) 11:08, August 12, 2013 (UTC)
Just wait until the game gets released so we can get as much info as we can.Mystic Orb: Who do you think I am? What do you want? What do I do? 23:27, August 14, 2013 (UTC)

I would like to point out that the quote "What you see is what you get..." will remain because in my opinion I think it is a strong representation of Sonic.

Sonic is officially an awesome hedgehog, folks!


Is Sonic actually as fast as you and I might think? In the first game, act one of Green Hill Zone, is 236 Sonics long.

  • Green Hill Zone = 259.6 meters
  • Sonic = 3 ft and 7 in (WikiAnswers is not accurate)

The world record to beat act one was 25 seconds, so the player would have to move Sonic a little bit over 10 meters per second, pretty fast, but not even close to breaking the sound barrier, which is 340.29 meters per second. Compare those numbers to Sonic's rival, Mario. In Mario's first game, Small Mario is 4.8 inches, tall and wide. The distance to the first pipe is 69 Marios long, which is 98.1 meters. The avarage time to get their is 5 seconds, making Mario move 20 meters, sorry to break this to you in their respective first games, Mario is faster than Sonic.

To a later game, a block to Empire State, New York from First Street, New York is 1/5 miles by 1/20 of a mile, if Sonic were running the longer part of the block, he would come close to braking the sound barrier, as he would be traveling 321 meters per second. However, he is running the shorter part of the block, traveling 80 meters per second.

So, if Sonic were the fastest thing alive, he would beat a course and a half in a second. So Sonic is not the fastest thing alive.

Sonic is a thrill seeker he likes to feel a rush to him there's no point in going as fast as he can also if he went as fast as he could there wouldn't be a game and second whose saying that we are seeing things the way they really are and not the way Sonic sees them.Amyrunhammer Sonamyfan666 Follow me inside, outside, through the stratosphere... Amyrunhammer

Yes, Sonic does see himself as the fastest thing alive, but in reality, a cheetah is faster (113 kmh). I'm not saying that hedgehogs are slow, unlike cheetahs, hedgehogs can run 6.6 times their own body lenght a second, the most dissapointing thing is he isn't even the fastest character in his own games, who is? Dr. Robotnik.

You have to have a supension of Disbelive also most of what you are bringing up  any fan with common sense can disproof with what I just said also Sing your comments. Amyrunhammer Sonamyfan666 Follow me inside, outside, through the stratosphere... Amyrunhammer

Why are you quoting that video? He used a clip that only showed the initial speed from using a boost. And why didn't you atleast pt quotes around that whole thing? "…but in reality, a cheetah is faster (113 kmh)." He's only taking real life animals into the problem. He's not taking the point of Sonic being a superhuman h

Completely revised weaknesses

I removed some headcanon I placed when I was a daft fan who wanted to force my portrayal of Sonic on others, really guys, you didn't spot that?

This page is very verbose, you can give a lot more information in a lot less words, I sorted out the section I felt I had some responsability to, but sheesh, it shouldn't have gotten this bad.

Also bear in mind that Yuji Naka was programmer, he didn't deal with characters and Yuji Naka is in no position to state that Sonic can't swim becuase he thought Sonic shouldn't be able to swim. Not that I think he did.

You don't need to reason with us if you want to make corrections to the page yourself. Mystic Orb (TP.CO.EC) 01:45, November 24, 2013 (UTC)
I was kind of trying to say that the whole page is like that.
Mysterics (talk) 01:54, November 24, 2013 (UTC)

Lengthy as...

This page is really lengthy. Really, really lengthy.--SlugDrones • (Contact) 07:04, February 20, 2014 (UTC)

Indeed. I say we summarize most of the paragraphs. Anyone other than I willing to lend a hand? BlueSpeeder (talk) 13:09, February 20, 2014 (UTC)
We could also split it up into subsections and then set up tablets to the individual sections. Like they do on other wikis for the main characters such as One Piece wiki or Bleach Wiki. Ultrasonic9000 (talk) 13:12, February 20, 2014 (UTC)
Like how the Transformers wiki does so, Ultra? Like, this? BlueSpeeder (talk) 13:21, February 20, 2014 (UTC)
More like this, but it is the same idea, so yeah.Ultrasonic9000 (talk) 13:27, February 20, 2014 (UTC)
Actually, that is a good idea. We should do that. BlueSpeeder (talk) 22:20, February 21, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah that's a good idea.--SlugDrones • (Contact) 15:55, February 23, 2014 (UTC)

So, are we going to do this with the other character pages? Because, Ultra, that's a good idea. BlueSpeeder (talk) 12:10, March 17, 2014 (UTC)

The other character articles are not quite the dimension Sonic's is yet. So I don't know if that would be fitting.Ultrasonic9000 (talk) 14:16, April 9, 2014 (UTC)

The personality section looks fine to me.--Mike Gilbert 02:21, May 9, 2014 (UTC)

Sonic's age

In the profile template, Sonic's age is still given as 15, despite Generations being about his birthday. Would that not up it to 16? I doubt the Time Eater screwing around would alter the biology of Sonic's age. -Dysley

Sonic Channel still lists his age as 15. Myself 123 01:09, July 4, 2014 (UTC)

Sonic reference in Crash Bandicoot codename

Do you think that it should be added to trivia that Crash Bandicoot once had a codename that included Sonic? However it was a bit rude. Here is the info Vulpecular (talk) 01:35, July 16, 2014 (UTC)

Hmm, well if it's not too rude, I don't see why not. User:Sesn/Signature

Possibly would it be better put in this list here: Vulpecular (talk) 04:06, July 17, 2014 (UTC)

Sonic's Shoes

What do we say about Sonic's shoes from Sonic Adventure 2 and the Sonic Riders Trilogy? - BlitzGundam (talk) 23:45, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

Sonic Fan Film By Eddie Lebron

Where would the Sonic counterpart from that fan-adaptation be? in here, the canon wikia or the fanon one? Superior Spider-Man (talk) 21:05, November 28, 2014 (UTC)

Definitely not here. Myself 123 21:06, November 28, 2014 (UTC)

So it should be/belong to the fanon wikia? Superior Spider-Man (talk) 22:11, November 28, 2014 (UTC)

The Sonic fanon wiki seems to be more for fan characters and stuff. Myself 123 16:24, November 29, 2014 (UTC)

Sonic the Hedgehog still looking the same

I think or the first time time I said this was when I watched Sonic Lost World, after many other Sonic the Hedgehog games, he still looks the same, not saying I dislike it, but it has been a long time. He is still a famous hero, being Super, Darkspine, a Werehog, and a knight, Excalibur.

Sonic the Ultimate Lifeform

What's if he was the Ultimate Lifeform, after shadow. In sonic Adventure 2, Sonic is able to perform Chaos Control with a fake Emerald, unlike Shadow; but like Shadow, Sonic gets his power from rings to keep him alive too, but they aren't strapped to him at all times, like Shadow's rings. & Remember the last episode of sonic 2006? When Mephiles stab sonic, Elise thought he was dead, but realize he wasn't. Which is why he was still able become super as the chaos emeralds regain his strength. & in Sonic Unleashed, sonic was effected by Dark Gaia's energy, which is why he be came a werehog. ‎BROTHERMAN145 (talk)

Fanaticism at its finest, folks… Sonic's just a really special hedgehog whose whole history… doesn't even matter anymore because Iizuka doesn't know what to say sometimes… You can have the dimension that holds the continuity of those specific occurrences while the world gets the new dimensions of Sonic Forces and Sonic Mania. Sonic Hog Speed (talk) 08:49, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

Relevant subject of preservation?

I'm wondering if it's relevant to this article to mention facts about, say, Sega Genesis/hardware preservation in correlation with Sonic The Hedeghog himself. This video showcases Exodus running Sonic The Hedgehog, a highly cycle-accurate hardware representation of Sega. I'm just wondering if it would be relevant to mention the fact that Sonic The Hedgehog -- the 16-bit game -- is subject to software preservation. 

Classic Sonic (Forces)

So, since the Classic Sonic in Sonic Forces is from "another dimension" and not the past, shouldn't he get his own page?--Neffyarious (talk) 19:27, September 15, 2017 (UTC)

According to the translations, his bio on the website mentions that he's worked with Modern Sonic before, so it would seem he is still the same Classic Sonic as before. Myself 123 19:30, September 15, 2017 (UTC)
Logic would dictate that he could get his own article like the other counterparts here on SNN. HOWEVER, we should wait with any action until we can truly discern Classic Sonic's nature in this game.Ultrasonic9000 (talk) 19:41, September 15, 2017 (UTC)
Well, I couldn't agree with that - Classic Sonic in Sonic Generation was Modern Sonic's past version. But I also could agree with that because there are another story await to expose later on. Just like Legend of Zelda, which has its story jumped forth or back in whichever era the game was released in - and that don't count Hyrule Warriors.
Like Ultrasonic said, we should wait, not jump on the gun soon. FredCat 20:51, September 15, 2017 (UTC)

So should he be split?--Neffyarious (talk) 15:21, December 21, 2017 (UTC)

Well, we did not get a clear explanation from the game, although I suppose that if handled properly, the article could be split at this point.Ultrasonic9000 (talk) 16:17, December 21, 2017 (UTC)
