  • Because SEGA put so much focus on Sonic in recent years, many Sonic fans tend to think of him as the only slice of importance in the entire franchise. Sonic is certainly an important character, but there is more to the series than just Sonic. The game developers have been trying to tell us that for years by putting more focus on other characters, but many Sonic fans still aren't listening.

Mind-Boggling Sonic Theories/Questions

  • If Zero was destroyed by Amy in the human world (Sonic Adventure), why is he is the Special Stage in Sonic Advance 2?
  • Prof. Boobowski created the Rings of Order to power a giant dimensional ring take can transport characters anywhere in the universe (Sonic's world). The Chaos Emeralds are needed to cross dimensions to another universe (the human world).
  • What connection do the Rings of Order have with the Chaos Rings from Knuckles Chaotix?
  • Gerald Robotik (Eggman's grandfather) created Shadow on the Space Colony Ark (native to the human world), while G.U.N. (an organization native to the human world) was involved in the tragic events that happend abord the ark. Yet Eggman is native to Sonic's world. How the hell does that work?

The Worst People in the Sonic Franchise

The Sonic franchise manages to attract some of the worst people on the planet, whether it's a group of psycho fans who have been banned, caused others to get banned, or out-right banned people themselves. But then there are some particular names who have contributed to some of the worst blows in the industry, whether it's out of negligence, greed, or pure ego.

Future Game Ideas

Sonic Adventure 3

If I had full creative control over what to do for the next Sonic game (assuming it goes in the main series), it would be Sonic Adventure 3.

  • Six characters, each with their own story: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Shadow, Blaze, and Silver
  • The return of Chao Garden. Maybe an element feature this time around.
  • Have one Chao you raise follow you through an action stage (similar to Cheese) and assist you in destroying enemies.
  • Try to implement all of Sonic's attacks ths time around:
    • A to jump
    • A in mid-air for a homing attack, no lock-on symbol
    • B to Spin Dash
    • B in mid-air to bounce
    • X to boost, once you build up build maximum gauge from running.
  • For Chao attributes in action stages:
    • Swim - Defense
    • Fly - Evasion
    • Run - Speed
    • Power - Attack
    • Stamina - Overall Heath
    • No gimmicks like racing, using a mecha, or treasure hunting. Just get to the end of the stage.
  • No 2D. Save that for a handheld or digital (eShop/PSN/XBL) game.
  • Each character gets a theme song.
  • Perfect camera angling that no one will bitch about. I never did get any replies on that thread, thank you very much.
  • Unlockables of actual value, like Knuckles Chaotix, SegaSonic Arcade, or Sonic Shuffle (with improved gameplay).
  • Emblems!
  • Customizable character menu themes.
  • An option to mute Omochao.
  • An option to skip cutscenes.
  • Sound Test
  • Replay cutscenes
  • You have to run towards the screen from something huge in the first stage!
  • Super Sonic, Super Tails, Super Knuckles, Super Shadow, Burning Blaze, and Super Silver playable in regular stages after the last story.
  • A distinction between Sonic's world (Green Hill Zone, Angel Island, etc.) and the human world (Station Square, Central City, etc.).

Just like the good old modern Sonic days, but better.

And this and just part one of my ideas.

Sonic Ultimate Brawl

Onward to part 2! Sonic Ultimate Brawl!

Think Marvel vs Capcom 2. Now replace all of the characters with Sonic characters, from the classic era to the modern era. No comic book or American characters.

  • 3-on-3 battles, if this wasn't already obvious.
  • The default roster (and this is pending) would consist of: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Cream & Cheese, Shadow, Rouge, E-102 Gamma, Chaos, Dr. Eggman, Big, Tikal, Vector, Espio, Charmy, E-101 Beta, E-123 Omega, Metal Sonic, Blaze, and Silver.
  • Additional characters would consist of Mighty, Ray, Lumina, Void, Metal Knuckles, Fang, Bark, Bean, Eggrobo, Emerl, Gemerl, Jet, Storm, Wave, Cosmo, Bokkun, Mephiles, Tiara, Honey, Battle Bird 16th/Speedy, Shahra, Marine, Capt. Whisker, Johnny (Robot), Eggman Nega, Chip, and Shade (if possible).
  • These additional characters can be purchased in the game's shop in character packs.
  • You can earn currency in the form of points by pulling off enough combos and damage (simply by playing the game and advancing through rounds).
  • The jazz music genre will still be there, but will consist of completely original songs.
  • This game is in no way canon, as it uses characters from different continuities, provided they're from the main Sonic series and SEGA. No DiC, Archie, or Big Red Button.
  • Character profile pages
  • A wallpaper gallery
  • An unlockable Puyo Puyo minigame (based on Puyo Puyo 2/Tsu), where you go up against all the characters you've unlocked. If you beat the game in a specific order of characters, you unlock each of the following SEGA characters: NiGHTS, Reala, Amigo, Billy Hatcher, and Ristar.

And that's only part of it.

If the game ever becomes popular enough for a demanded sequel and the cast grows some more 10 years later, I'd probably include Mecha Sonic (S3&K) and the Deadly Six, along with Silver Sonic, Neo Metal Sonic, Mecha Knuckles, Zero, Erazor Djinn, Merlina, Iblis, the Hobidon (Sonic X), Dark Oak, Battle Bird 15th, maybe Dr. Fukurokov, Witchcart, Bearanger, Carrotia, Fockewulf, Chaz (Sonic X-treme), Gabby (Sonic X-treme), Pacachamac, King Boom Boo, Metal Sonic MK III, Werehog Sonic, the E-10000 robots, the SCR robots, Omochao, even the useless Tails Doll.

Sonic X/NiGHTS into Dreams (Working Title)

On to Part 3: A Sonic-themed sequel of NiGHTS into Dreams.

  • In this game, the two main human children are Chris and Helen from Sonic X.
  • The plot takes place between Season 2 and Season 3 of Sonic X.
  • Both Chris and Helen will receive character development in this game that will inspire to become inventors (or whatever occupation) as shown in Season 3.
  • In this game NiGHTS (guided by either Chris or Helen) has to go through three Sonic stages (three for each person).
  • In Chris' dream, he learns that Sonic's friends have been captured by a Nightmaren expy of Eggman. Chris has to free two of them, and then find Sonic.
  • In Helen's dream, she is summoned by a mysterious voice of someone she has yet to meet (an newer Sonic character who did not appear in Sonic X, Blaze). While searching for this person, she also has to free Cream, and then Amy, who were also captured by a Nightmaren expy of Eggman.
  • Chris' stages are Angel Island (Knuckles), Splash Canyon (Tails), and Starlight Carnival (Sonic).
  • Helen's stages are Leaf Forest (Cream), Twinkle Park (Amy), and Sky Babylon (Blaze).
  • Helen's also able to walk in her dream/Nightopia ("In a dream you can do, anything you want to").
  • Reala and Wizeman the Wicked also make an appearance in this game, who this expy of Eggman reports to.

Sonic the Series

If Sonic receive an animated series that is a faithful adaptation to the series, it would an epic adventure where Sonic first travels to South Island, encounters Eggman, destroys a few badniks, frees a few animals while collecting six emeralds, travels through Marble, Spring Yard, Labyrinth, Starlight Zone, and finally takes down Eggman in Scrap Brain Zone, restores South Island back to its natural state, receives a distress call from a two-tailed fox named Tails, rescues him from Silver Sonic Prototype Version, begins his friendship with after he works on Sonic’s bi-plane, travels with him through Westside Island, collects the emeralds again including a seventh one, boards the Wing Fortress, makes it onto the Death Egg, defeats Silver Sonic, transforms into Super Sonic and destroys Eggman’s giant robot, travels to Little Planet, meets Amy who is shortly captured by Metal Sonic, collects the Time Stones, has an epic race against Metal Sonic, defeats Eggman, teams up with Mighty and Ray to escape Eggman’s prison fortress, briefly returns to South Island with Tails to free it from Eggman’s control. travels to Angel Island, has a run-in with an echidna named Knuckles, travels through the first half of Angel Island, destroys Eggman’s Big Arm robot, lands in Mushroom Hill, starts collecting Super Emeralds, encounters Knuckles in the Hidden Palace and defeats him, teams up with Knuckles as they scale Sky Sanctuary, boards the Death Egg again while Knuckles fights Mecha Sonic, goes up against a modified Master Emerald-powered version of Eggman’s giant robot, transforms into Super Sonic while joined by Super Knuckles and Super Tails, finds himself in a tight spot until he uses the Super Emeralds to transforms into Hyper Sonic, defeats Eggman, returns the Master Emerald, parts ways with Knuckles, encounters a bounty hunter named Fang, travels through a number of zones, fights both Fang, Metal Sonic, and Eggman at Atomic Destroyer Zone, parts ways with Tails, finds himself in one of Eggman’s bases with slow-down shoes, overcomes his lack of mobility and defeats Eggrobo disguised as Eggman, while Tails battles the Battle Bird Armada, while Knuckles forms a group call the Chaotix and collects the Chaos Rings while battling Eggman and Metal Sonic Kai, as Sonic rendevous with Tails, and then the Chaotix.

Then Sonic would team up with Knuckles to destroy Eggman’s Silver Castle, collect Flickies with help from Tails, and Knuckles, battle against several of friends and other opponents to win seven emeralds (and one pricey gem) and a trip in Tails’ rocket to defeat Eggman and Metal Sonic, team up with Tails, Knuckles, and Tiara to rescue Amy and Dr. Gazebo Boobowski from Eggman’s Galaxy Fortress, compete in a series of races against his friends, Eggman, Metal Sonic, Metal Knuckles, Eggrobo, and a random Tails doll/robot,

And the classic era is history!

What is NIDS (Neuro-Immune Deficiency Syndrome)

I'll take a stab at this. Neuro-Immune Deficiency Syndrome is a group of symtoms that consistently occur in relation to a lack of function of one's neuroimmune system. Because one's nervous system and immunity system lack a functioning immunity, harm comes to both their nerves and body (one's voluntary and involuntary actions become impaired, while the body becomes more suceptable to diseases).

Needs More Love - Characters

There is a large number of characters who have been shafted from recent Sonic titles over the years:

  • Big the Cat. Yes, a large number of fans hate him for being fat, slow-witted, obsessed with Froggy, and generally useless both plot-wise and gameplay-wise in a fast-paced action/adventure game that revolves around a fast blue hedgehog. Sega's decision to retire him for future games doesn't help matters either (unless you're an anti-Big fan). However, in Big's defense, he didn't stand much of chance in the first game he was playable in, compared to the speed our main protagonist and how heavily locked in plot he and other playable characters were in regards to Eggman, his Egg Carrier, and Chaos, along with not having any pre-existing history with any of the characters. But since the damage is done, it would be helpful to put Big's character to better use by focusing on his positive aspects. While Big will never have a playable role in any main Sonic games, he could have more use in spin-off game genres such as fighting, where he could be a Gentle Bruiser (due to his size and personality). Another option could be his own fishing game, which would give Big [more room to expand in character, without having to contrast with any of the fast-paced Sonic elements of the core series.


"Broken" is an unused (and under-appreciated!) song from Shadow the Hedgehog.

Don't wanna feel like
Don't wanna think like
Don't wanna live like
Like someone else
Wanna feel like
Just wanna think like
Just wanna be like
Everyone else
Couldn't walk away from something broken
Tried to find a way to make it good again
Only you can make a difference darling
Don't wanna sing like
Don't wanna dream like
Don't wanna act like
Like someone else
Wanna feel life
Just wanna live life
Just wanna live life
As someone else
Couldn't walk away from something broken
Tried to find a way to make it good again
Only you can make a difference darling
Won't someone help me (I'm feeling down)
Won't someone help me (Yeah I'm falling down)
Won't someone help me (Yeah I'm already down)
Couldn't walk away from something broken
Tried to find a way to make it good again
Only you can make a difference darling
Couldn't walk away from something broken
Tried to find a way to make it good again
Only you can make a difference darling
