Oh yeah, the Sonic series. One of my favorite video game series of all time.It's one heck of an awesome series! Lots of memorable characters, awesome gameplay, bright and colorful graphics, catchy addicting music, the list goes on and on. What I am here to talk about today is who is my favorite Sonic characters of all time. There are a few rules about this countdown.
1) They MUST be from the games to count. This means no AoStH characters, Satam/Archie characters, SU characters or Sonic X characters.
2) They must appear in more than one game to count.
3) This is MY list NOT YOURS!!!!!! You don't like it? Too bad. Make your own!
Now that I have covered the rules its time to start the countdown.
Top 10 Sonic characters
Number 10 - Big the Cat. Unfortunately this character is nothing bashed constantly by the Sonic fanbase. Honestly? What is so bad about Big? Is it because of his levels in Sonic Adventure? Or is it because he considered an annoying character? I could understand people disliking Chris, Elise, Chip, Sally, Omochao, etc. Chris and Elise are considered overly exposed characters and Elise is considered useless. Chip and Omochao is considered annoying. And Sally is considered a Mary-Sue and an overly exposed character. Big is none of those things. He was in Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing. Sadly he didn't return in Transformed. Big the Cat is one of the most obscure characters in the games and he needs another chance?
Number 9 - Jet the Hawk. I know all you guys are gonna start freaking out on me? WHY IS JET ON THIS LIST!? He is awesome! He's the Master of the Wind! He's green! He's a Hawk, one bad*ss bird! He rides a hover board. What more could you want!? Jet needs to appear more in other Sonic games. He is worthy of being Sonic's rival along with Shadow, Knuckles and Silver. The only time I didn't like Jet was when he was talking to Amy rudely in Zero Gravity. Other than that. He is a great character no matter what you guys say? The Sonic series needs more Birds of Prey.
Number 8 - Espio the Chameleon. Sadly another obscure character in the Sonic series. He only appeared in Knuckles Chaotix and Sonic the Fighters. That is until Sonic Heroes came out. I actually had alot of fun playing as Team Chaotix. Espio could turn invisible and fire shurikens! (Only in Heroes) It's been a while since Espio was last playable in a Sonic game. And I would like to see him playable once again. Along with the rest of Team Chaotix. I honestly doubt they are gonna bring Mighty back?
Number 7 - Dr. Eggman. You know? Eggman is one heck of a funny villain. Always trying to take over the world to make his Eggman Empire. But it always fails as Sonic destroys through his robots like its nothing! Sonic of course is cocky and often pokes fun at Eggman calling him "Egghead" or "Baldy McNosehair" etc. I find it so funny how Eggman has an I.Q. of 300 yet he is always getting his butt handed to him by Sonic! He just doesn't know when to quit. Does he? That is why he is on this list. Because he is funny and he is an awesome villain at the same time. In fact he is one of my favorite villains in any series in general. It's not Sonic with Eggman! If anyone talks about video game villains? Eggman is one of the first villains to put in my head.
Number 6 - Rouge the Bat. One of the most hottest and most controversial Sonic characters out there. She is like Bat version of Catwoman. Like her she steal jewels and has a bit of a crush on Knuckles. Rouge treats jewels like their her own children. Gee? I wonder if she takes care of her....okay never mind. lol So yeah, I also support Knuxouge and I am neutral on Shadouge. I can tell Knuckles likes Rouge a bit. Remember the scene from Sonic Adventure 2? They seemed to enjoy helping each other hehehehehe!
Number 5 - Shadow the Hedgehog. Although Shadow the Hedgehog the game not the character was not great. He still is an awesome character. Sonic and Amy were the only hedgehogs in Sonic until Shadow came along. I actually have sympathy for his character. He was very close to Maria Robotnik, Eggman's deceased cousin. He loved her more than anything! They had a brother and sister relationship! Then after Maria sent him away in the capsule. Except it's not exactly know who she died but its very sad to lose someone like that. Shadow may be an aggressive character but he does have a softer side. Maybe someday, Shadow can find another hedgehog like Maria?
Number 4 - Knuckles the Echidna. Awww Knuckles where did I begin here? You were introduced as a supposed antagonist in Sonic the Hedgehog 3. But it turns out you were fooled by Eggman.....many many times. Knuckles may be gullible. But he is an awesome character. He can glide, he can climb walls, he can dig, he can punch, etc. Sonic and Knuckles was a great game it came with an add-on to play as Knuckles in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and 2. Some people have managed to hack Knuckles into Sonic the Hedgehog 1. He does have a bit of a tempter but in a good way. The music in his levels in Sonic Adventure 2 are catchy and addicting. I seem to be the only one who likes the music in those levels? It's so funny who Knuckles has believed Eggman over and over again despite being one of Sonic's closest friends and a friendly rival. Despite this. He is number 4 on this list.
Number 3 - Miles "Tails" Prower. Sonic's best friend and unofficial brother. Tails was introduced as a side kick for Sonic starting with Sonic the Hedgehog. Unfortunately, so many people hate Tails as a character. Game Informer notably. He's not a bad character at all! Anyway, Tails is like the Luigi of the Sonic series. You can even plug in a second controller to play as him! His levels in Sonic Adventure 2 where awesome. They really need to make where you can play as Tails in the Tornado again. Man, Sega really needs to start making other characters playable in the main games. Not the spin-offs the main games. Tails is my favorite fictional fox next Fox McCloud from the Starfox series. Both of them are pilots and dogfighters. Just like my Original designs on Sonic and Amy. I will be drawing Tails in my own original design. He will be a cross between Captain Falcon and Jin Saotome from Capcom's Cyberbots.
Number 2 - Sonic the Hedgehog. Did you guys honestly think I wouldn't put Sonic himself on here? Of course I was gonna put him on here! Why wouldn't I!? Sonic the Hedgehog. The main character of the whole series. Sonic is the cocky adventurous hedgehog we all know and love. He is the fastest thing alive. I first go to know Sonic back in 1999 when I was 5 (I am 19 now) when I went to make older cousin's house to play Sonic Adventure on his Dreamcast. I fell in love with the series ever since. I bought every Sonic game since and beat all of them up to this point. However I am still working on Sonic Lost World. Sonic was and still is my favorite video game character of all time. Male character that is.... That is right. There is one character I like EVEN MORE than Sonic himself! You guys are gonna have to stay tuned because I have a whole PAGE to talk about this character! Be prepared!
