Sonic The Hedgehog Edit
Sonic the Hedgehog Edit
Sonic the hedgehog is a video game character and the protaginist to the famous Sonic the Hedgehog series by Sega. His first game was released on june 23 1991. ( my birthday but different year. Sonic
then had a lot of spin-offs, comic books, and cartoons. Sega provided Nitendo's flagship character, Mario a rival. since then Sonic has beome one of the best known video game characters ever. His series sold over 50 million copies! Sonic replaced sega's mascot Alex Kidd. Many fans sent in designs. An armadillo morphed into the desighn for Mighty the Armadillo, and a Theodore Roosevelt look alike that became the design for Doctor Eggman. Fans also sent in picture of rabbits with extendable ears to grab objects. this became the concept for Ristar.Eventually Naoto Oshimas spiky teal hedgehog ,original named Mr. Needlemouse, became the macot. He is fifteen years old and 100 centimeters, three feet and three inches. He was officialy born of Christmas Island.
Sonic is known for his ability to run faster than sound. Sonic can commonly curl into a spiky ball primarily to attack enemies when jumping or rolling. In most games when doing this Sonic can automatically home in on enemies and this is called a homing attack. Sometimes Sonic can burst forward in raging speed. This is different in all games. In Sonic and the secret Rings its "time break" or "rockey boost." in Sonic Heroes it "Rocket excel." Sonic has several diffent moves new to each games such as Fire Gaze and new sword swinging Abilities.
Miles "Tails" Prower Edit
Tails is a 8-yearold sidekick to Sonic whose name is a pun on the phrase miles per hour. He is a mechanic with the ability to rotate his tails like a helicopter to momentariliy fly until tiring. Inanthropomorphic fox with two tails (similar to the mythological kitsune), hence the nickname. He is known to be Sonic's sidekick and a mechanist. He is able to use his two tails to propel himself into the air like a helicopter for a limited time. His debut was in October 16, 1992, introduced in 8-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2; the 16-bit version was released that November. During his first appearance in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, his skin and fur was an orange color, but the color was changed to yellow-orange for Sonic Adventure, and light-yellow for Sonic Heroes. In 1993 and 1995, he starred in his own games, Tails and the Music Maker for the Pico, Tails Adventure, and Tails' Skypatrol for the Game Gear. Tails is the third most popular character of the series, behind Sonic and Shadow, according to official polls. However, he is being given more minor roles in games as of late. Yasushi Yamaguchi, originally the main artist and zone designer for Sega's Sonic Team, designed Tails as an internal competition for a sidekick to the speedy hedgehog. The character was meant to hold a "deep admiration for Sonic." Tails was originally intended to be a tanuki, a raccoon-like canid native to east Asia, and extremely popular in Japanese folklore. The designers decided to change him to a fox, however, to avoid possible comparisons with Mario, who at the time had a power up called the Tanooki Suit, which allowed him to fly, and made him look like a tanuki. His entry won, but Sonic Team decided to change his character's name from "Miles" to "Tails".
Yamaguchi ended up with a compromise. He snuck the name "Miles" in as his legal name; "Tails" would be his nickname, ending up with the full name of Miles "Tails" Prower.
Tails was redesigned (along with all of the other Sonic characters) by Yuji Uekawa for Sonic Adventure. His fur changed color to a slightly orange shade of yellow, and he gained visible blue irises.
In the American Sonic comic book, along with the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons, he was originally a brownish color, but the comic artists eventually decided to change this to match his in-game appearance.
In the anime series Sonic X, Tails is almost identical to his current game design, though he appears to have a round belly in some episodes.
Tails was first seen on Sonic 2 for the Master System, where he was kidnapped by Doctor Ivo Robotnik for ransom. He was first made playable in the Genesis version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, where he played the part of Sonic's sidekick and also as a playable character from the second controller, or could be chosen as player one. Sonic Chaos (1993), on the Game Gear/Master System was the second game where the player could control Tails, and the first game where the player could control his flight.
Then, in Sonic 3 (1994) Tails made his third major appearance, this time able to pick up Sonic when possible, while he was flying. This was a big step forward for Tails; he became much better known and respected at this point for his usefulness.
Additional comment Edit
Tails starred in his first solo role in Tails' Skypatrol (1995), which was a sort of puzzle game on the Game Gear. This was followed by Tails Adventure, which was a Metroid-esque platformer with RPG elements (Note: according to the Japanese release, the events of the latter game took place before Tails ever met Sonic). Tails Adventure was released the same year as Tails' Skypatrol.
Tails was also the star of Tails and the Music Maker for the Sega Pico.
He found himself in the ring for the arcade game Sonic the Fighters, which was later ported to the GameCube and PlayStation 2 (excluding America) via Sonic Gems Collection. In this fighting game, he can fly into enemies, spin dash and punch rapidly. He is the fifth character the player fights in the story mode, and his stage is "Canyon Cruise", which takes place on a boat.
Tails was also a playable character in Sonic R. He had good turning and could take shortcuts with his flying ability, but wasn't very fast.
In Sonic Adventure and its remake, Sonic Adventure DX, Tails was one of the six playable characters. His gameplay was standard platforming stages; the goal of each stage was to destroy the capsule or get to the Chaos Emerald before Sonic or Dr. Eggman. However, in the sequel, Sonic Adventure 2 and its remake, Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, he was featured in third-person shooting segments, seated in his "Cyclone" mech, similar to E-102's stages from the first, not counting his Chao Garden appearances where he performed as he did in Sonic Adventure. He is also in the story mode as a member of the hero team.
In Shadow the Hedgehog, he helps Shadow out in the Circus Park and Air Fleet levels, and can be played using the second controller in the GameCube and PS2 versions. He shows the ability to use Sonic's Homing Attack in this game, but cannot fly. He can attack by hitting enemies with his tails.
Tails was also in Sonic Battle for the Game Boy Advance. His story was second in the main mode. His specials included firing electrical energy with an arm cannon, setting "Chu2" bombs that seek out their target and causing a giant hand to appear and attack. His flying ability is present but greatly weakened, but it is made up with the fact that Tails has one of the best healing abilities in the game.
In Sonic Riders, Tails is a playable character, and one of the main characters of the game. He modified Sonic's Extreme Gear "Blue Star" to become "Blue Star 2", and rides a board called the "Yellow Tail". Wave the Swallow makes fun of his board design, sparking a rivalry between them throughout the game. When racing, he has the best cornering of all characters, and fights with a giant electrical plug. He is also playable in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity.
In the Sonic the Hedgehog game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Tails is a playable character. He and Knuckles are amigo characters for Sonic.
In Sonic Rivals, Tails appears in Sonic's storyline as a cameo appearance. When both he and Sonic head over to the mysterious Onyx Island, they discover that Amy has been turned into a card by Dr. Eggman himself. When Sonic doubts Dr. Eggman, Sonic gets a front-row seat to see Tails get turned into a card himself. Sonic sets off to rescue the two as other rivals, Knuckles the Echidna, Silver the Hedgehog, Shadow the Hedgehog, and Metal Sonic get into the mix as they all head on a search for Eggman. Tails also appears as three collectable cards in the game. He is playable in Sonic Rivals 2.
In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, Tails is one of the 16 playable characters (8 being from Sonic's universe) as a Skill-type character. In a future apperance, he will also appear in Mario And Sonic At The Winter Olympic Games. He is still a skill type character. Tails' signature move for the Wii and DS version is Tailspin and Propeller Dash for the DS version.
In Sonic and the Secret Rings, Tails is a playable character in Party Mode, but during the main story he acts as a guide, with his likeness used for Ali Baba in place of Tails himself.
In Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Tails calls on Sonic to inform him of numerous going-ons, thus starting the adventure. He joins Sonic's party upon their entrance to Central City, and is the third party member to join (after Amy). He is of the Support Class, meaning that he has a lot of skills that help keep his party members alive, or help them in their assaults, such as 'Scan.' He can fly on the map, allowing him to get to places only a select few can reach.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, he is a Green Hill Zone cameo. He also has an unlockable trophy, only obtainable by accumulating over 30,000 FT of walking distance between all characters. His trophy cannot have multiple copies.
In Sonic Unleashed, Tails is the only person who could automatically identify Sonic after he changed into his werehog form (even though Amy met Sonic as the Werehog, she wasn't able to identify him until talking with Professor Pickle). Tails and the Professor appear to be good friends and share common interests. In this game, Tails flies Sonic and Chip around the world to each location to help repair it. He still does even after the player completes the game and the world is restored.
In Sonic and the Black Knight, he is portrayed as a blacksmith that Sonic goes to have Caliburn sharpened. It is confirmed that he will be playable in mutliplayer mode. He is amazed at Caliburn's details and the fact that Caliburn can talk. Once he resharpens Caliburn, Sonic gains the use of the Soul Gauge. Sonic can then return to him before missions to equip items, check his stats and forge new weapons for the other Knights of the Round Table.
It has been confirmed that in the unreleased Sonic X-treme, which was in development for the Sega Saturn platform, Tails would have appeared, playing in a first person flight mode. Sonic CD only contains Tails in the form of a piece of artwork that features him standing next to a racecar with the caption "SEE YOU NEXT GAME" - a reference to Sonic Drift for the Game Gear.
In Sonic 2, Sonic 3 and Sonic Adventure, when the player has opted to play in 'Sonic and Tails' mode (controlling Sonic while the AI makes Tails follow him), it's not readily stated in the manual, but a second player can use the 2P controller to use Tails. The action will continue to follow Sonic on the screen, making him the focal point, but Tails is fully controllable in every way that he is when playing as Tails alone. This can potentially be exploited by players who are having trouble with some problem areas or bosses, as Tails has the benefit of being completely invulnerable, with any "death" he suffers being quickly resolved as the character flies harmlessly back onto the screen after a few seconds. Moreover, in Sonic 3, Tails is granted the ability to fly as he pleases, which can allow the Tails-using player to airlift Sonic wherever he might need to go, though Tails does have an endurance limit to his flight. Sonic Advance allowed this mode as well (via a code entered at character select), however, Tails couldn't be controlled by a second player this time. In the GameCube and PS2 version of Shadow the Hedgehog, all non-hovering characters, including Tails, could be controlled with the second controller.
Tails is potrayed as a very kind, young fox who is humble about his abilities, and always willing to help out when he can. He was very shy when he first met Sonic the Hedgehog, but gradually opened up and became Sonic's best friend. In Tails' Adventure, he saved an entire island from the brink of destruction caused by the Battle Kukku Army. He also battled various villains in Tails' Sky Patrol, such as the main villain, Wendy Witchcart. In Sonic Adventure, Tails saved Station Square from Doctor Eggman. Tails soon realized that he was able to be independent and support himself without Sonic's help.
He now has many different creations, and his intelligence matches Doctor Robotnik's. He does have a few weaknesses, though. He is very afraid of lightning, and has a tendency to talk too much, which frequently causes him to accidentally blab out secrets or plans (for example, in Sonic Adventure 2, without thinking at first, he told Eggman that the Chaos Emerald that Sonic had was a fake, thus ruining the heroes' plans). He also has a tendency to talk technobabble, much to the irritation of his friends (E.g. in Sonic Riders, where Knuckles asks him how Extreme Gear works but ending up telling him to shut up due to the fact Tails was explaining some principle about the board, using those terms).
In the Archie Comics, the other Freedom Fighters take care of the fox, him being too young to do much. However, over time he grows up to become a valuable team member.
As a Sidekick.Edit
The Japanese and western manuals differ somewhat in the story of how the two first met.
In the Japanese manual, Tails lived on Westside Island, which Sonic arrived at shortly after Sonic the Hedgehog in his biplane, the Tornado. Sonic instantly became Tails' idol when the fox first witnessed the blue hedgehog's incredible speed. After Sonic saw that Tails was actually able to catch up with him, he decided to let him tag along (this scene can be witnessed in Sonic Adventure in a flashback during Tails' story). He was treated unfairly by the other peoples of his tribe and wanted someone "cool" to be with. Being a mechanics buff, Tails took the time to look over Sonic's plane when he had gone away. However, around the same time, Dr. Robotnik began demonstrating the power of his spacestation, the Death Egg. Tails was more than willing to help stop Eggman, effectively teaming up with Sonic. The added details about his mechanical abilities explain why Tails was so quick with repairs while Sonic fought his way through the Wing Fortress Zone, and have since been referenced in later titles such as Sonic Adventure where he made a much faster, more well equipped plane, the Tornado II, to replace the old one.
According to the western manual, Sonic had been Tails' hero ever since he was a baby fox. After following his hero relentlessly for a long time, Tails became fast enough to keep up with Sonic by spinning his twin tails in a propeller-like style, which gave the fox the ability of flight. Eventually, Sonic and Tails became best friends.
Interactions with other charactersEdit
Tails has many friends besides Sonic, and his skills are respected by everyone who knows him. In Sonic Heroes he is part of Team Sonic, along with Sonic and Knuckles. Tails mostly treats and respects all his friends the same with a humble and somewhat passive attitude.
For the most part, he has a friendly relationship with Amy Rose. Amy can be quite insulting and outspoken to Tails, like she is to everyone else, but they can work together productively and sometimes Amy is defensive of him; for example, by getting mad at Wave for laughing at him. Tails is also friends with Knuckles. They converse more than Knuckles does with Sonic, although they do tend to irritate each other occasionally - Knuckles scares Tails in Sonic Heroes during the ghost levels, while Knuckles gets confused when Tails talks technobabble in Sonic Riders. Tails is also on friendly terms with Cream the Rabbit and Cheese the Chao. Some fans believe that Tails and Cream like each other, though Sega has never revealed any relationship between them, and interaction between the two has been minimal. Tails has also claimed that he respects Shadow, mainly mentioned in Sonic Battle.
In Sonic Adventure 2, he had a rivalry with Doctor Eggman, fighting him directly in the Cyclone twice - once on Prison Island, the second time on the Space Colony ARK after Eggman blasted Sonic into space. After this, the rivalry seemed to cease, and Eggman and Tails are seen talking to each other in a quite civil way at the end of the game. Eggman also seems to develop a respect and liking for him during the events of Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, due to their shared skill with machines. He also found a rival in Wave the Swallow in Sonic Riders. In the game, she insulted his Extreme Gear skills to lower his morale, but her action caused a determined Tails to beat her in a race.
Amy Rose Edit
Amy Rose, once known as Rosy the Rascal, is a character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. She is a pink, female hedgehog who plays the part of Sonic's self-proclaimed girlfriend. She has chased Sonic since her first debut in 1993, and has been trying to win his heart in everything from the series' animated TV shows to comics and games. She is the first female character introduced into the game universe and is also one of the most popular, coming in fifth place on an official popularity poll.
Like Sonic and other characters in the series, Amy is significantly shorter and lighter than humans her same age. To be precise, she is 12 years old, 90 cm (2'11") tall (although at times it looks as if she's almost the same height as Sonic), and keeps her weight a secret. She was described as being 8 years old in Sonic CD, but as of Sonic Adventure and onwards she has grown older (by 4 years). Also, with the addition of Cream the Rabbit, Amy seems to have found herself a sidekick similar to Sonic's own Tails (as implied by Sonic Battle, Sonic Heroes, Sonic Advance 3, and Shadow the Hedgehog.)
Despite her frequent use in Sega games (especially since the post-Dreamcast era), Amy was not actually created by Sonic Team. A prototype version of her appeared in the Sonic the Hedgehog manga published in 1992, and there she was literally "the girlfriend of Nikki (Sonic)", as the description translates. After that appearance, Sega took the character, and Kazayuki Hoshino redesigned her for Sonic CD in 1993. It is said that she is always wearing a red dress and Converse-like running shoes. Amy's first official Sega design had her in a green blouse and an orange tutu, however she still wore her red headband.
In her first game appearance, Sonic CD (1993), Amy was introduced and kidnapped by Metal Sonic. Doctor Robotnik then used the time stones to set time back on the Little Planet. Robotnik forced Sonic to challenge Metal Sonic in a race for Amy's life, which Sonic had won. Amy was rescued and Metal Sonic was destroyed for the time being. She had the nickname "Rosy the Rascal" at this point, and was named "Princess Sally" in the Western manuals to tie in with the cartoon, though all later games called her Amy. Being a Genesis-era game (though technically a Sega CD game), Sonic CD's plot was minimal. Amy's only personality trait was that she was a big fan of Sonic, enjoying to follow him around, and no real reason was given for her kidnapping besides as bait for Sonic. The help file of the PC version of Sonic CD states that she likes mysterious things, such as fortune telling, but her facination with Little Planet is the only evidence of this. Though Sonic CD was released after Sonic the Hedgehog 2, it was in production at the same time, meaning that Amy has more or less been around as long as Tails.
Amy appeared again in Sonic Drift and Sonic Drift 2 to race in a Grand Prix – her vehicle was a car with a face. She was a playable character in the 1996 arcade game Sonic the Fighters. In 1997's Sonic R, Amy was the only character to drive a car - everyone else ran on foot (or in Robotnik's case, drove an Eggmobile).
Sonic the Fighters introduced her Piko Piko Hammer. This game used her "Rosy the Rascal" nickname as well, though it has not been seen in a game since. This nickname is, however, used for Amy's parallel double in Sonic the Hedgehog #193 through 196.
In 1998, Sonic Adventure thrust Amy in the spotlight. She is a playable character in the game and uses her weapon of choice, the Piko Piko Hammer, to defend herself during her quest to find the family of a bird that escaped Eggman and crashed into her. Like the other major characters in the series, Amy was redesigned significantly for this game. Her locks were redesigned into short hair being slacked down, and she now wore a red dress and red boots with a white stripe from the top to the tip, similar to Honey the Cat's Fighters dress, to take advantage of her more mature 12-year-old form. Interestingly, her boots are identical to Wonder Woman's official costume. She was given green eyes, the same eye color as Sonic had only in a darker value. Somewhat oddly, in this newer design, Amy often appear to have a more of an 'hourglass'-shape to her body than many other females in the series (such as Blaze, Wave), despite the fact that she is somewhat of a younger age than these characters.
When Sonic Shuffle was released for the Dreamcast, Amy, as well as Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles collected rings and other items while walking around on a board game surface.
She was an important supporting character in Sonic Adventure 2 because she was the only character that was only playable in 2-player mode to also have a role in the story mode. When Sonic was kept in an island prison, with Tails' help she managed to free him. This happened to be one of the surprisingly many times Amy has saved Sonic rather than the usual opposite. She is also responsible for causing Shadow to realize Maria's true wish by begging him to help everyone, and thus ending up saving the world against the Biolizard, and later with Sonic-- Finalhazard.
Amy was playable in Sonic Advance, but unlike the other playable characters, she could not spin and all her attacks had to be triggered. She had an unlockable playable appearance in Sonic Advance 2 (after collecting all Chaos Emeralds with all the other characters) in which she could spin, as well as Sonic Advance 3.
In Sonic Heroes, Amy leads Team Rose. She represents the team's speed formation. She's accompanied by Cream the Rabbit and Big the Cat on a mission to impress Sonic, while Big wants to find his friend Froggy (again), and Cream and Cheese want to find Cheese's sibling, Chocola, all the while inspiring the whole team, cheering her friends on.
Amy appears in Sonic Battle as a playable character. She is considered by some to be one of the stronger and more reliable characters in the game. All of her attacks contain large amounts of speed, power, and balance, her healing ability can quickly raise her HP, and she is the third fastest character.
Amy appeared alongside Sonic and the rest of the cast in Shadow the Hedgehog to try to convince Shadow the Hedgehog to join their cause. Amy in particular needs Shadow's help to rescue Cream and Cheese from Eggman's Cryptic Castle.
Amy is a playable character in Sonic Riders from the start, and her type is Speed, as equivalent to Sonic's. She is not playable in the Story Mode, though she is a character in the main story.
Amy appears in Sonic the Hedgehog as an ally in Silver the Hedgehog's storyline to enlist his help in finding Sonic, not knowing that Silver is looking for him too for radically different reasons. Upon finding Sonic, Silver battles him and loses, but by later on catching Sonic off guard and hitting him with a powerful blow, Silver gets the upper hand, but Amy stops him from finishing Sonic off. Amy also saves the damsel-in-distress Princess Elise and Sonic at one point in the story.
Amy also appears in Sonic's storyline in Sonic Rivals: Amy has been turned into a card by Dr. Eggman and Sonic sets off to save both her and Tails. She also makes cameo appearances as three collectible cards. And although it is said that Rouge will be playable and there seems to be a rivalry between the two in few games. She doesn't appear in the sequel Sonic Rivals 2, except as a few collectible cards.
Amy is a playable character in the Party Mode in Sonic and the Secret Rings alongside Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Shadow, Cream, Silver and Blaze.
Amy appears in the Mario and Sonic game crossover as a playable character in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games. Like all the other female playable characters (Blaze, Princess Peach, and Princess Daisy) she will wear a different outfit to her normal clothes. Her dress is similar to her normal wear (but different around the shoulders), white the edition of black leggings underneath it, while she wears a different pair of shoes.
Amy is a playable character in the game Sega Superstars Tennis.
Amy is playable in the Sonic Riders sequel Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity.
In Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Amy went with Sonic to save Knuckles, and later the world from Emperor Ix. It is revealed in Chronicles that Amy has started a club for young girls to protect themsleves from bullies. Also, the player can engage in a romantic subplot between Sonic and Amy depending on the player's conversation choices.
Amy appears in Sonic Unleashed. She made her introduction as she did in Sonic Adventure 2's Dark Story and Silver's story in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) by plunging into someone who looks like Sonic. Although she got it right this time, she didn't recognize Sonic due to him being in his Werehog form. She apologized, saying that she could of sworn it was him. Yet before she could get a good enough look at Sonic, he dashed away, afraid of what Amy would think of him if she knew who he was. Amy later finds out about Sonic's new form, saying that although he's changed his look, he's still Sonic to her. She later helps out Professor Pickle and in one cutscene, she talks about being interested in learning
Knuckles the echidna Editechidna, who is both physically powerful and highly resilient. He has a white crescent symbol on his chest. The
character is both a friend and a rival to Sonic the Hedgehog.
Knuckles' name is derived from the four knuckles, two on each hand, which are actually sharp spikes. According to official Sonic Team polls, Knuckles is the fourth most popular character in the series, behind Tails, Shadow and Sonic.
Knuckles: further information Edit
His first game appearance was in Sonic the Hedgehog 3, released on February 2, 1994 for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis. He was described as being 15 years old when he made his debut, but since Sonic Adventure, he is now given the age of 16. Knuckles has two spikes or claws on each hand, and his dominant trait is his strength. He can also glide by trapping air under his dreadlocks, and is very skilled at a wide variety of martial art forms.
Knuckles lives on Angel Island, which hovers in the sky thanks to the power of the Master Emerald, which he is charged with guarding. Knuckles is the last surviving member of the Echidna people who once inhabited the island, though it is later revealed that he is not the last of his species entirely. Due to his rather remote location and the fact that he rarely strays far from his duty, Knuckles is often alone, and as thus can be quite antisocial and distrusting, but on the other side, he is often quite gullible. One example of this gullibility is the belief that he held throughout Sonic the Hedgehog 3: that Sonic and Tails were attempting to steal the Master Emerald and that the infamous mad scientist Dr. Robotnik was trying to protect it.
Dr. Robotnik, of course, had lied to Knuckles, and was planning on using the emerald to power his space station, the Death Egg. In the Hidden Palace Zone, Robotnik's betrayal was revealed to him very bluntly, in the form of (quite literally) breaking into the Master Emerald's chamber in the Hidden Palace Zone and electrocution
Cream the Rabbit EditCream the Rabbit (クリーム・ザ・ラビット Kuriimu za Rabitto) (also known as Cream Yamato in Japan) is a rabbit in the Sonic the Hedgehog universe.She has a bond with a chao named Cheese, who follows her everywhere.
Saving "Mommy" Edit
The first game Cream appeared in was Sonic Advance 2, where she was an unlockable character. Like Tails and Knuckles, she was kidnapped by Eggman and Sonic the Hedgehog must rescue her before she can become playable. Just before the final level, her mother is kidnapped by Eggman, who is eventually rescued in the end by Super Sonic after he destroys the final boss.
Cream the rabbit is 2 feet and three inches and six years old.
Special Delivery Edit
Cream is seen as a cameo in Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut for the Gamecube and PC after playing the Casinopolis level when first going to Station Square as E-102 Gamma and after completing Twinkle Park as Big the Cat. She is flying through the sky, apparently dropping the ice key that appears at that point in the game. This isn't her only cameo in the game, but it's her best-known one.
Finding Chocola Chao Edit
She is a part of Team Rose, the "Beginner" Team, acting as their flight member in Sonic Heroes. The trio are on a quest to find Cheese's sibling, Chocola the Chao, a brown Chao with a blue bow tie, (as well as Big the Cat's friend, Froggy) and Sonic. In the game, she can only use Cheese to attack when the other two team members are incapacitated or otherwise not present. Her Chao attack is a means of self-defense, although the attack isn't very effective if she doesn't have 2 to 3 Power Cores.
Of Sibling Bonds and Team PlayersEdit
Cream has also appeared in Sonic Battle where she teaches Emerl about sadness and emotions. She is the second character to be found in Sonic Advance 3, where she was walking and got lost. Cream makes an appearance in Sonic Riders and its sequel as an unlockable Flight-type character. In this game she, like Amy and Rouge, wears a different outfit.
Friend in unexpected placesEdit
Cream's role in Sonic Rush was as a supporting character for Blaze the Cat, but ended up playing a very large role as a non-playable character. She and Blaze meet after Blaze finds her hiding in bushes nearby. She is surprised at how naive and trusting Cream is with a stranger such as herself and is dragged along to Cream's home. Throughout the game, Cream cheers Blaze on during the battles and helps her to find Sonic. However, in this game, Cream also displays an understanding of her friends and their habits and motives. She tells Blaze that Amy is a good "Sonic detector" though sometimes lets her feelings get the better of her. She also mentions to Blaze Knuckles' gullibility and his short temper. Cream is held hostage by Eggman Nega in the final boss of Blaze's game but is rescued by Blaze. She is sad to see Blaze go at the end of the Extra story, but she becomes much happier upon learning from Sonic that Blaze promised to see them again.
She and Cheese both, who can be found trapped behind walls, need to be rescued by Shadow the Hedgehog and Amy Rose in the game Shadow the Hedgehog during the level Cryptic Castle, which is her only appearance in the entire game (besides her voice being heard in the levels The ARK and Cosmic Fall in Expert Mode). Whether or not she is rescued is up to the player.
First time HealerEdit
She also appears in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood and is one of the two optional recruits along with E-123 Omega. She is seen in Green Hill Zone and is looking for Cheese who got lost. Her role is, in Final Fantasy terms, a Healer/White Mage. She can heal and revive her teammates and use her charm to lower enemy stats. She is also rather slow in this game compared to the others, with only one attack per round. She also suffers from weak attack power and armor.
Cream is a princess-like figure; she is polite, follows manners (and never forgets them) and does what she is told. She's very friendly and tries to be close to everyone she meets. She is brave as well, usually not afraid to go out on an adventure. She’s a bit naïve however, and doesn’t always see things right away, since she’s still very young.
Cream enjoys spending most of her time outdoors. There, she likes to play with her friends, usually any activity they want, or collect flowers which she finds pretty and joyful. She loves adventures and exploring. Indoors, she enjoys watching TV and probably any games she can find. Her favorite food is ice cream.
She doesn't like any form of violence, abuse or fighting and only fights to protect the people she cares about. Like most of the characters in the Sonic series, she doesn't like Doctor Eggman much either, but as custom, she is still somewhat polite to the doctor (at least before using Cheese to smack him senseless).
Big the Cat EditBig the Cat is a character from the Sonic the Hedgehog series.He is the heaviest and largest non-metal character in the series. His character designer is either Yuji Uekawa, Takashi Iizuka or even Naoto Oshima.
He has an important role in Sonic Heroes. In this game he is the power type member of Team Rose and teams up with Amy Rose and Cream The Rabbit to find Froggy and Chocola who had recently vanished, supposedly kid-napped. After defeating the Egg Emperor on the Egg Fleet, the Egg Man clone piloting the Mech turns into a puddle of liquid, and Chocola and Froggy rise out of it.
Big is playable in Sonic Shuffle for the Dreamcast as an unlockable bonus character.
Big makes several cameo appearances in Sonic Adventure 2, where can be found in most stages and boss fights, and even some cutscenes. He was also unlockable as a character in 2-Player Mech Battle mode, where he used Eggman's mech. In the Gamecube version, all these cameos were removed, and in 2-player mode, he was replaced by Dark Chao. Big still appears in the game two times, if the player selects the scene where the battle between Knuckles and Rouge is over or when Amy begs Shadow to help the others in the last episode. Big can only be seen if the player hits the A or B buttons repeatedly.
Big cameos in Sonic Battle as well. Players can choose to link four Game Boy Advances together using link cables to play multiplayer games with only one game cartridge. In one of these mini games, Big can sometimes be seen fishing as he sits on the platform where the other characters battle.
Big makes a cameo appearance in Sonic Rivals as two collectible cards. Froggy also has one.
He has a gallery section in Sonic and the Secret Rings. He appears in several missions in each level which usually mounts to two, if the player waits in the certain area for a few seconds Big will appear and a page will be unlocked. In each page it will feature him doing things will befriending a skeleton or lining up in a row of gargoyles and feeling out of place.
Big has an appearance in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games acting as one of the referees.
Big's abilities include using his strength to lift, push, carry and throw heavy objects, and use his body (usually his stomach) to crush his opponents and objects. He can use his fishing rod to fish and attack an enemy (known as Lure Attack), and its power is increased with the Power Rod. Its power can also be raised with level-ups (there are 4 in all). In Sonic Heroes, he is able to swirl his rod around and when powered up, it has a fire trail. When Big acquires the Life Belt, he can float on water and dive underwater. Big can also use his rod as an umbrella to float on a fan with Amy and Cream. When Big uses Flower Festival with Cream and Amy, he pushes them up with his umbrella. He is also able to poison enemies with the help of Froggy.
With Big’s size, he does not move as quickly as the other characters, but he seems to have excessive speed in Sonic Heroes. In Sonic Adventure, Big does not have many abilities and his attacks aren't as powerful as the other characters, but despite his size, he can climb up ladders very fast. Along with being the fastest ladder climber in Sonic Adventure, Big seems to have more advanced climbing cababilities than the others like Sonic himself. This has been proven by several pictures in Secret Rings where he easily climbed the main mast of a pirate ship. His massive body size makes him an easy target.
His strength and near-invulernability makes him hard to take down and impervious to dangerous substances like poison gas. There are times when he gets so giddy that anything coming at him just bounces right off him. The following is a list of POW moves Big has in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood:
- Lure Whip (ルアーウイップ): Big hooks his line to a target's feet and pulls it down, stunning it.
- Battering Ram (Cat Punch キャットパンチ): Big punches an enemy with his fists three times, distracting the foe.
- Taunt (Provocation ちょうはつ Chouhatsu): Big gets the attention of an enemy and fortifies himself when the foe attacks him.
- Froggy Poison (Frog Poison フロッグポイズン): Froggy jumps off Big and kisses a foe, poisoning the one who got the smooch.
- Feel No Pain (Exciting エキサイティング): Big gets so fired up about the fight, any incoming attacks heal him instead of damage him.
- Froggy Rain (Frog Rain フロッグレイン): Big asks Froggy to summon his friends, who then drop down on all enemies.
In Sonic the Comic-Online, when The Family wanted him for dead, Big was shown to have a hidden talent which was the ability to catch bullets in mid-air which is something not even Sonic may not be able to do.
Big is also a character in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. He still maintains his somewhat slow and dim nature, but is an invaluable ally due to his ability to safely make it through harsh environments with his Invulnerability. He has a side-quest revolving around finding Froggy's friend Norton. In battle, he has superior strength, but slow speed, being granted only 1 turn per round.
Big has been comfired to be one of the playble characters in Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing.
Shadow the Hedgehog Editis an anti hero and the arch rival of Sonic the Hedgehog. Created as "The Ultimate Life Form" by Professor Gerald Robotnik.Shadow is indestructible, however that doesn't mean that he does not feel pain. Shadow is ageless as well. Since his debut, Shadow has appeared in a multitude of games, television shows, and comic books. His past was almost a complete mystery until the game Shadow the Hedgehog revealed the events surrounding his creation. In contrast to Sonic, Shadow is typically portrayed as a tortured anti-hero, or a renegade who can just as easily serve the forces of evil as those of good. However, he does what he needs to do to accomplish what he knows to be right. So overall, Shadow could be considered a die-hard hero. According to an official poll, Shadow is the second most popular character in the series, second only to Sonic himself.
Shadow debuted in the game Sonic Adventure 2 as one of three playable "dark" or "villainous" characters, alongside Rouge the Bat (who also debuted in this game) and Doctor Eggman. Dr. Eggman set Shadow free from a G.U.N. base on Prison Island, where he had spent 50 years in suspended animation. In exchange, Shadow agreed to aid the doctor in his plans to take over the world; holding his true intentions as wishing to get revenge for the death of his friend, Maria Robotnik, as he thought she wanted. To achieve this, Shadow revealed the Eclipse Cannon to Dr. Eggman, blowing up half of the moon in demonstration. In a twist of fate, Shadow ultimately aided Sonic when realizing Maria's true wish with the help of Amy Rose, which was to save humanity. In Last story, Eggman inserts the final Chaos Emerald, only to initiate a destabilization program on the ARK. Professor Gerald Robotnik then revealed that he had made this function to have revenge for Maria, and that the ARK would destroy the Earth. Sonic, Eggman, Rouge, Tails, and Knuckles took a shortcut to the Cannon's Core so the could stop Prof. Gerald's mad plan. Amy then helped Shadow realize Maria's true wish. Meanwhile, Sonic and Knuckles had reached the Central Core, where they reactivated the Biolizard. Notably, a scene from Gerald Robotnik's diary appeared again. After Shadow defeated it, Knuckles used the Master Emerald to stop the Chaos emeralds. But the Biolizard, being the prototype of Project Shadow, used Chaos Control to fuse with the ARK, continuing its fall. Then, as Super Sonic and Super Shadow, they destroyed the Biolizard (the Ultimate Life form prototype), having become a monster code-named Finalhazard, and using their pooled energies, executed an enhanced Chaos Control which stopped the fall, and warped the ARK. Afterward, Shadow fell to the earth and was presumed dead. In Sonic Heroes, Rouge discovers Shadow in a stasis tube located in the deepest part of one of Dr. Eggman's bases. As she activates the capsule, E-123 Omega begins to attack the newly awakened Shadow, believing him to be an android. Shadow discovers that he has amnesia and cannot remember anything before his release (aside from his name and brief images of Maria Robotnik's death). He joins forces with Rouge and the robot E-123 Omega to form Team Dark and find Eggman. It is later revealed that Eggman had made robotic android versions of Shadow, and the question is raised as to whether or not Shadow himself is one of these androids. Ultimately, when Metal Sonic transformed into Metal Madness, Shadow worked with everyone else to help defeat it. Shadow is last seen with Omega and the defeated Metal Sonic.In Sonic Battle, Rouge saves Shadow while they are investigating Dr. Eggman's secret base and takes him back to her home (Shadow seems to now remember Maria and his fight against the Final Hazard so it is possible this game takes place after Shadow the Hedgehog). Shadow talks about how the people of Earth must destroy him and Emerl if they ever want peace, still believing that he is a weapon. It is revealed, however, that he ultimately has the heart and soul of Maria Robotnik, implying he could not be the enemy of humanity. In one of Gerald Robotnik's journal entries, he mentions that "Project Shadow" was put on hold because of Project Gizoid. In Shadow the Hedgehog, Shadow is revealed to be the dual creation of the alien overlord Black Doom and Professor Gerald Robotnik. Gerald could not finish the project on his own, so he contacted the Black Comet and used Black Doom's blood, and presumably his DNA to create Shadow. Shadow eventually gathers all the Chaos Emeralds and confronts Devil Doom (Black Doom's powered up form) as Super Shadow. He then destroys the Black Comet with the Eclipse Cannon. In the end, he puts the past behind him and chooses to move forward. Also, in the last battle of the game, Eggman confesses to Shadow that one of his robots found and saved him after the incident in Sonic Adventure 2, meaning he is the real Shadow and not a Shadow Android as was previously believed.
E-123 Omega EditE-123 Omega, or, technically, E-123 Ω, is a fictional robot from the Sonic the Hedgehog video game universe, first appearing as a fully playable character in the multiplatform gameSonic Heroes, which was first released in Japan on December 30th, 2003. Omega was created by Takashi Iizuka and designed and modeled by Nobuhiko Honda at Sonic Team USA.
He bears a strong resemblance to another character in the series, E-102 Gamma (a possible design inspiration), who is part of the same robotics production line in the series. In the games, he was created by Doctor Eggman, and is out to destroy him due to lack of respect and want for revenge. Omega is 150 cm tall (4ft 11in) and weighs a hefty 1,230.512 kg (2712.77lbs) making him the heaviest character in the Sonic series.
He has the capital Omega symbol (Ω) painted on the front of his left shoulder, in contrast to all the other E-100s, which had lowercase Greek letters. This may be to show that Omega is the most powerful of Eggman's E-Series (though the original set of E-100s from Sonic Adventure had various Greek symbols), or because the character's designer felt that the capital letter was more noticeable and well-known than the lowercase (ω).
Omega has helped Shadow (and to a lesser extent, Rouge) in four Sonic games, and while not being a major character, is popular enough in his own right and has established himself as a main character. Recently, however, he has made less appearances in Sonic games, as he only seems to be in the mainstream canon games, with the exception of Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood which was a spin-off, as a teammate to Shadow and Rouge
Omega is the one hundred and twenty third and last of Doctor Eggman's E-100 series robots, debuting in Sonic Heroes. Omega was designed by Eggman to prevent the release of Shadow the Hedgehog, and, in case he failed to control Shadow when he was released from stasis or someone managed to free him. To accomplish this, Eggman sealed Omega in an abandoned base with Shadow. Being imprisoned infuriated Omega; he decided to prove his status as the most powerful E-Series robot by abandoning his original programming and taking revenge on his creator and all the other machines he built.
When Rouge the Bat went looking for Eggman's secret treasure in his base, she accidentally reactivated E-123 Omega when she released Shadow from a stasis pod. Mistaking Shadow for an Eggman robot and following his new mission, Omega attempted to take out the hedgehog. However, Rouge broke up the fighting long enough to hear both their stories. He soon teamed up with Rouge and Shadow as the power member of Team Dark.
After several adventures, Omega and his team finally defeat Eggman, (who is really Metal Sonic in disguise). Omega then sets about destroying Eggman's Shadow Androids. Rouge tells Omega that Shadow, the one they know, is a robot, and then turns to leave. Omega says, with a slight sign of compassion, that in order for there to be clones the original must still exist, (which is later revealed in the true ending of the game Shadow the Hedgehog that the Shadow in Sonic Heroes is in fact the real one).
Omega later joins the other teams against the Metal Overlord. Omega is last seen during that event with Shadow exchanging looks with him and holding Metal Sonic's deactivated body in his arms.
Rouge the bat Editis a video game character who is a determined treasure hunter and part-time government agent who plans to make all the gems and treasures of theworld hers. Her current jewel obsessions are the Master Emerald and Chaos Emeralds. She made her debut in Sonic Adventure 2 and has been featured in the Sonic the Hedgehog console games, along with two handheld games since.
In seven of the ten games she has appeared in to date, Rouge wears a skintight black body suit with a large pink heart-shaped breast plate, long white gloves, and white thigh-high boots with pink hearts on the toes. She also has long eyelashes and wears blue or pink make-up on her eyelids. Rouge is 18 years old, measures 105 cm (3ft 5in) tall and weighs 35 kg (77 lbs) to ~39 kg [85.8 lbs]. In Sonic Heroes she wore a different outfit with similar color schemes and heart-shaped details.
Rouge first appears in Sonic Adventure 2 as the treasure-hunting character of the Dark Story. She is the Dark side's equivalent to Knuckles, her goal being to seek out the pieces of the Master Emerald. At the beginning of her story, she is seen arguing with Knuckles over the Master Emerald as she tries to convince him to 'just give it up'. Their argument is interrupted when Eggman appears to take the emerald for himself- which doesn't go as planned, as Knuckles flies up and smashes it. This prompts both Knuckles and Rouge to find all of the shards before the other does.
Later on, she's seen sneaking into Eggman's base. Once inside, she makes a deal with Eggman, offering her jewel-hunting skills to find the Chaos Emeralds to power his Cannon. In exchange, he gives her an Emerald tracker to find the Master Emerald pieces. On Prison Island, Rouge steals three of the Emeralds after breaking into "Security Hall". After the following boss fight, she is trapped in the building as Eggman's bomb is about to go off, and is saved by Shadow the Hedgehog.
She later was supposed to try and guard the ARK from intruders (IE, Sonic, Knuckles, and Tails), after Eggman failed to stop them (and ended up having to get out of the mess he got himself into), but she then starts snooping around about the Ultimate Lifeform (presumably for the President), and later discovers that Knuckles' stash of the Master Emerald Shards have been accidentally jettisoned into space, and uses the opportunity to try to complete the Master Emerald. However, shortly after finding them, she encounters Knuckles at a Space Structure Planetoid and duels with him for the Emerald Shards. However, she gets reckless and nearly falls into the pit of Lava. She's saved by Knuckles, and seemed to be somewhat disgusted that he touched her. She later returns her stash of the Emerald Shards to him, in exchange for an apology for hurting her.
She continues to assist Shadow and Eggman, until she is revealed by Shadow to be a secret agent working for G.U.N., who also stops Rouge from taking the emeralds from the Eclipse Cannon shortly after overhearing her plans. Rouge cheers Sonic and Shadow on during the final battle to save the earth from the Biolizard, and is given Shadow's ring by Sonic after his supposed death.
Vector the Crocodile Editis a character from the Sonic the Hedgehog series and leader of the Chaotix detective team who debuted in the game Knuckles' Chaotix. Vector is a large strong anthropomorphic crocodile. Vector's trademark is a set of headphones which he always listens to, even during missionsAfter the events that had occurred on Carnival Island (AKA Knuckles Chaotix), The Chaotix went their separate ways and did their own little jig. However, after some years had passed by, Vector decided
Vector's first actual appearance was in Knuckles' Chaotix (simply Chaotix in Japan) for the Sega 32X. The Japanese manual states that after an island rises from the ocean depths, Vector travels there as he interpreted the islands sudden appearance from out of nowhere as a miracle from God. Upon arriving, he is captured by Doctor Eggman, who is building his Newtrogic High Zone base on the island, and the villain places Vector in the "Combi-Confiner". In the American manual, he is a friend of Knuckles the Echidna, and is captured as Eggman attacks "Carnival Island", out to steal its power source.
In both stories, Knuckles the Echidna arrives at the island in order to stop Eggman, and can choose Vector as a partner character after the initial training stage. Vector can do mid-air dashes and climb on walls.
The Chaotix surprisingly reappeared in Sonic Heroes, where Vector, Espio the Chameleon and Charmy Bee have created their own detective agency, with Vector being the leader of the group. They are hired by an anonymous character that contacts them via a walkie-talkie, and perform several missions for the voice after being promised a hefty reward. Throughout the game, Vector is the "power" member of Team Chaotix, and as such uses his strength to destroy obstacles and enemies.
In the end of their story, Team Chaotix rescue their client, who turns out to be Doctor Eggman (Which Vector had figured out but not revealed to Charmy or Espio), framed throughout the game by Metal Sonic. After Metal Sonic transforms into Metal Madness, Team Chaotix help out giving Team Sonic their collected Chaos Emeralds and by attacking Metal Madness's left side, buying time for Sonic, Tails and Knuckles to turn into their super forms and defeat him. After this, the Chaotix chase after the fleeing Eggman in order to get their payment
Vector Additional DetailsEdit
In the anime Sonic X, Vector and the rest of the Chaotix play a very minor role in Season 2, only appearing in one episode. They were hired by Vanilla the Rabbit to find her daughter, Cream the Rabbit. After finding Cream at the Thorndykes' residence, they start to believe that Sonic kidnapped her, which couldn't be more wrong. After a failed sneak attack from Espio, Vector and Charmy get in a fight with Tails, Amy, Cream, and Ella. When Sonic comes in to see the fight, Vector calls him "Sonic the Kidnapper", but the fight ends when Vanilla arrives with Sonic. Vector is thanked by Vanilla for finding Cream and he gets confused when she thanks Sonic for taking care of Cream.
They play a much larger role in Season 3, where Vector and the Chaotix take supplies from Chris Thorndyke's parents to the Blue Typhoon, the warship that Tails built that Chris is aboard. When they arrived, they were attacked numerous times on the thought that they were evil Metarex aliens. After a understanding between Vector and others, they deliver Chris' stuff and Vector plans to catch Cream and bring her to their homeplanet. However, he captures Cosmo the Seedrian as well, and they end up back at the Blue Typhoon. Vector and the others soon leave without Cream. However, they get lost on the way back and meet up with the Typhoon's crew some time later.
The second time, they help Tails impress Cosmo, a girl Tails likes, as repayment for him fixing their ship, (Vector tried to render Knuckles unconscious and disguise him as a Metarex, with Espio holding him up invisible, for Tails to protect Cosmo from, which fails) and later appear to help fight the Metarex.
In the anime Vector seems to make puns about how he is a reptile like how he says to Sonic " Sure I'm a warm hearted reptile "
Espio the Chameleon Edit(エスピオ・ザ・カメレオン, Esupio za Kamereon) is an purple anthropomorphic chameleon and an expert ninja. Espio's name is thought to either have come from the word"espionage", another word for spying, or to be a reference to the Spanish word "espio" (meaning literally "I spy").
Espio first appeared in Knuckles' Chaotix (simply Chaotix in Japan) for the Sega 32X. The Japanese manual states that Espio, being a detective, goes to investigate the mysterious island that has emerged from the sea.
In the American manual, he is a friend of Knuckles the Echidna, and is visiting "Carnival Island" when Robotnik attacks it.
In both cases, he is attacked by Doctor Robotnik and Metal Sonic who try to capture him. Knuckles saves him from the two, and Espio automatically becomes his partner character for the training stage. After this, Espio can be chosen in the "Combi-Confiner" prior to stages. Espio can walk on walls and ceilings, and uses his own Whirl Attack instead of the common Spin Attack.
Espio appears as one of eight playable fighters in the arcade game Sonic the Fighters (Sonic Championship in Japan). In the story, Espio is one of the eight characters who try to collect the eight Chaos Emeralds in order to travel into space and destroy Eggman's Death Egg II. Espio is the fourth character to fight in story mode, and his stage is Mushroom Hill, a part of Angel Island that appeared in Sonic & Knuckles.
In the game, Espio is a medium-strong fighter, and his special abilities include using his Whirl Attack and attacking with his long tongue.
The Chaotix made a new appearance in Sonic Heroes, where Espio, Vector the Crocodile and Charmy Bee have formed a detective agency (previously, only Espio was a detective). They are contacted by an anonymous client via a walkie-talkie. Espio doesn't entirely trust the voice, but Vector and Charmy quickly go help after they are promised a reward, with Espio tagging along anyway. In the game, Espio is the "speed" member of Team Chaotix, meaning he can run quicker than the others, and creates small whirlwinds for various purposes. Unlike the speed members of the other three teams, Espio can turn invisible, throw large shuriken and stick to walls.
In the end of their story, the client is rescued from Eggman's base, and turns out to be Doctor Eggman himself, to Espio's surprise. Eggman reveals that he had been framed and captured by Metal Sonic, who transforms into Metal Madness shortly after. Team Chaotix help out by giving Sonic the Chaos Emeralds they had collected throughout game, with Espio giving him the red one. Chaotix then stall Metal Madness in order to buy time for Sonic, Tails and Knuckles to turn into their super forms. At the end of the game he is seen running after Eggman with Vector and Charmy in order to collect their promised reward.
Charmy the Bee Edit(チャーミー・ビー Chāmī Bī) is a young, childish anthropomorphic bee and a member of Team Chaotix. He debuted in Knuckles' Chaotix, and was missing from the games for a few yearsuntil Sonic Heroes.
In Knuckles' Chaotix, Charmy makes his first game appearance. According to the Japanese manual, Charmy is out doing what bees do best when he arrives at an island and is captured by Doctor Robotnik, who is currently taking over the island. In the US version, he is a friend of Knuckles the Echidna who is visiting "Carnival Island" when Robotnik makes a surprise attack on the island.
In both cases, he is captured and placed in Robotnik's "Combi-Confiner", and becomes one of the several characters the player can choose to play as, or play with (as a partner character). Charmy can fly, and can as such do a dash in any direction instead of jumping. He can also start hover, which allows him and his partner to fall at a much slower and controlled rate.
In Sonic Heroes, Charmy is part of a detective agency along with Espio the Chameleon and Vector the Crocodile. One day he brings a package to the group, which contains a walkie-talkie. The voice behind it promises the Chaotix a large reward if they perform some missions for it, which they do. Charmy is the "flight" member of Team Chaotix, which lets him lift the other two to higher areas, or to kick them at enemies.
In the end, the voice turns out to be Eggman, which angers the Chaotix as they know he won't pay them. Vengefully, Charmy starts stinging the doctor with his stinger. Later, it turns out that Metal Sonic had betrayed and imprisoned Eggman, which is why he needed their help. Metal Sonic proceeds to transform into Metal Madness, and Eggman tells the heroes that the only way to defeat it is by using the Chaos Emeralds. The Chaotix give Sonic theirs, with Charmy having the cyan Emerald. They then stall Metal Madness by fighting his left side, so that Sonic can turn into Super Sonic.
Doctor Eggman EditDoctor Eggman, also known by his real name, Doctor Ivo Robotnik, is the main antagonist of the Sonic theHedgehog series, a comically obese scientist with an IQ of 300, and the de facto archenemy of Sonic the Hedgehog.
In childhood, the young Ivo Robotnik looked up to his grandfather, Professor Gerald Robotnik, and believed him to be a great man, who had done his best to help mankind and was unfairly executed. From this, the young Ivo likely viewed the government as corrupt, and in any case, decided to follow in his grandfather's footsteps to become a scientist. But somewhere along the line, he became obsessed with the idea of a world under his rule, and using his unmatched mechanical genius, began his plans. Long before the first Sonic game, Eggman met the hedgehog, and the two became instant rivals. Over the years he created several deadly creations, and, realizing the hedgehog's determination was as fierce as his own in overcoming them, gained a respect for his adversary. When he accidentally found his grandfather's diary, he was led on an adventure that would show him that his grandfather was perhaps not as innocent as he had thought. Recently, his plans have been increasingly hindered by outside forces, but this has given him chances to show his hatred of things that would threaten the entire human race, and consequently threaten his plans.
Eggman is the grandson of the renowned scientist Professor Gerald Robotnik, and the cousin of Maria Robotnik. He is a short-tempered, loud and pompous evil genius who plans to take over the world. However, his plans have always failed thanks to Sonic and his allies. Despite his intelligence, Dr. Eggman is horribly immature, throwing temper tantrums when Sonic throws the proverbial wrench into his plans, and, at times, seems to overlook crucial details in his plans, such as in the opening sequence of Sonic's story in the 2006 video game when he orders his robots to fire on Sonic while he is escaping with Princess Elise, failing to realize that they could possibly injure or kill Elise if they land a direct hit on Sonic. An example of his immaturity is in the ending of Sonic Unleashed, when one of his robots begins to insult him over his constant failures and calls him a loser; Eggman screams "Oh, shut up!!", attempts to kick him only to comically fail, and then chases him through the desert in a childish rage. Several versions of Robotnik also show a lack of common sense: the Sonic Underground incarnation, for example, was perfectly willing to let all of Mobius be destroyed by Chaos Energy as long as Sonic was destroyed as well, failing to realize that he would be destroyed as well.
He has built immense warships, such as the Death Egg and the Egg Carrier, as well as escape units such as the Egg Mobile. In fact, his most famous machine is an Egg Mobile with a wrecking ball attached to the bottom, which appears in Green Hill Zone as a boss level. His plans to create the ultimate utopia, the Eggman Empire, are always in full swing, and doesn't care where to create it, be it Mobius, Earth, Dark World, or even the Babylon Rogues' home planet. His abominable laughter and maniacal declarations contrast his self-professed softer side as a romanticist, feminist, and gentleman. Despite his and Sonic's constant feud, he has secretly developed a begrudging respect for the hedgehog. Although Eggman is a villain, he helps Sonic and co. when the world is at stake, most likely because if the world is destroyed, it defeats his whole purpose. This can be backed up by what he said in the Sonic X adaption of Sonic Adventure 2: "I'm so happy Earth was saved...Now I can conquer it and establish my empire!! Heheheh!" Eggman often declares his deep hatred of Sonic with his unmistakable catchphrase, "I HATE THAT HEDGEHOG!"
However, despite his desire for world domination, he does have a human side, and does not appreciate senseless destruction and killing. Although he doesn't appreciate in seeing others perform acts senseless destruction and killing, he seems to have no problem doing so. As shown in Sonic CD's Bad Futures, the "Eggman Empire" is full of senseless destruction, tyranny and ruin. In Sonic Unleashed, he possibly murders thousands when reawakening Dark Gaia.
In Sonic X, his human side shows even more due to the show's comedy value; his war with Sonic has become more of a light-hearted rivalry (and at the end of the anime series, he revives it solely for entertainment value), and he dislikes physically harming people and animals, as shown in an episode of Sonic X where Chris and Cosmo were captured by the Metarex; the Metarex leader knocked Cosmo out and stabbed Chris (but only knocked him unconscious in the 4Kids dub), leading Eggman to remark, "It's one thing to take them prisoner and threaten them, but when you actually hurt somebody, that's going too far!" In the Sonic X comics, a running gag involves Eggman struggling to understand the concept of money. While he is at a loss about what exactly is so valuable about "little green slips of paper" (as he often calls it), he does understand that having a lot of it allows him to buy more parts for his robots, so he often makes attempts to steal and/or extort vast amounts from the Station Square citizens.
Eggman's most well known ability is his masterminded plots and schemes which only fail due to Sonic and his friends. He is a remarkable scientist and engineer, as evidenced by the armies of robots he's created. Eggman is an incredibly skilled pilot: able to swoop missiles and lasers in his Eggmobile with skill rivaling that of Tails. Eggman has also shown some considerable physical strength. Despite his physical structure, Eggman is also very athletic; this is seen in many of the 16-bit era games, where there is almost always a point where Sonic chases him; despite his weight and Sonic's speed, he always manages to outrun his nemesis (one time he outran a speeding truck) long enough to reach his next escape vehicle or weapon. This trait of agility is carried on in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games and Sega Superstars Tennis. He also has a special sensor in his glasses that allows him to locate Chaos Emeralds. Jokingly, as an in-gameplay mechanic, it is also said that he is faster in running speed than Sonic himself as he always escapes his grasp in the Game Gear games. Although it has been proven, it is unknown whether he is still faster than Sonic, since he is almost always in his Egg Mobile. In Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood he is the most handicapped character in the game, as having no out of battle abilities and only one tag move with Tails despite being useful for defeating robots during the chapter. These are the two POW moves he has:
- Bombardment: Eggman does an odd dance to summon an artillery barrage that leaves the foe sluggish.
- Sabotage: Tails joins Eggman to quickly and aggressively dismantle a robot target.
Eggman might have superhuman strength. This is hinted in Sonic Riders, where Eggman could break stone pillars and even statues.
Silver the Hedgehog Edit(シルバー・ザ・ヘッジホッグ, Shirubā za Hejjihoggu) is a character in the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series. He is a white hedgehog with powerful psychic abilities who hailsfrom the future
Silver was created in order to utilize the new physics engine added to Sonic the Hedgehog (2006).
It is generally understood that Silver is based on (Future) Trunks of Dragon Ball Z, because both come from the future to fix something in the past, both lose someone they care about deeply in their futures (Gohan for Trunks and Blaze for Silver), both have super forms (Super Silver and Trunks' Super Saiyan), and both gain something from their experiences in the past that helps them defeat their disaster (strength and knowledge of the Android's weaknesses for Trunks and knowledge of how to defeat Iblis for Silver). His entry in the game script reveals that even his creators compare the two.
Official concept artwork released by Sonic Cult shows an early design of Silver. The main differences from the current final design include a long orange amount of chest hair around his neck, and bright blue eyes. His boots are also quite different. It is unknown, however, whether Yuji Uekawa, the main character designer of the Sonic series, actually produced the artwork.
More concept art of Silver was released in an interview with IGN, which was generally less similar to his current design. Notable designs include a hedgehog wearing a futuristic headset and another with markings on its hair. It is also revealed that Silver was originally an orange mink named "Venice" after Venice, Italy, the place Soleanna is based on. He was also considered to be a mink, but that idea was later abandoned. Silver is said to have gone through over 50 designs before reaching his final look.
As for Silver's Current design, Silver wears gold cuffs that go around his wrists and legs that are just a bit higher than his gloves and boots. Cyan lines encircle the cuffs. Silver's boots are indigo colored down the side and have teal-coloured tips. A white line goes straight down the middle to the teal tip. On the top of the middle of his shoe is a red gem-like adornment. The design on his gloves have a cyan circle that has a line at the bottom that goes down to his cuff. These channel his telekinetic ESP abilities through his shoes as do the ones on his gloves
Silver has 3 conflicting backstories for Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). On the game website, it states he came from a happy future that was never destroyed, and ended up in the past where he learned his future would be destroyed and tries to prevent it from changing for the worst. In the game guide, it is implied Silver is from the present and ends up in the future where he learns that it was destroyed during the events in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) and goes to seek what would destroy the future when he returns to the past(Thought it is mentioned in his walkthrough that he is from the future;see below). The actual story is that in the game, Silver lives in a destroyed future and goes to the past to change the future for the better
Silver is not from the same dimension as Blaze the Cat. He is from 200 years in Sonic's future. In Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), while Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles are exploring the future, Knuckles says, "How could this be our future?" The second and third time you find out Silver's in Sonic's world, is in Sonic Rivals 1 and 2. Right before Eggman Nega turns Sonic’s world into a card, Silver clearly states “What?! But that’ll mean my future will be destroyed too!”. In Sonic Rivals 2, he says to Espio and Knuckles, "I have to save your world or else my world will be destroyed as well!".
Blaze the Cat EditBlaze the Cat is a character in the Sonic the Hedgehog series, created by Sonic Team and owned by Sega. She made her debut in the Nintendo DS videogame, Sonic Rush.
Blaze is a princess and the defender of the Sol Emeralds, a role similar to that held by Knuckles. She is sometimes referred to as a queen; She is called "Queen Blaze the Cat" on the official Sega of America Sonic mini site, Sonic Central, as well as the Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) game website. However, in Japanese, her title is 皇女 kōjo, which translates as "imperial princess," (she is also called princess in Sonic Rush Adventure).
She wears gloves similar to those worn by Sonic, only there's fuzzy lining on the cuffs. Her shoes have the same motif as Sonic's, but they have fuzzy lining and are high-heeled. She also wears a purple coat, lined at the neck with gold (possibly a necklace) and at the bottom with magenta, and a pair of white tights. She has a ponytail, and a jewel-like red orb is present on her forehead.
In Sonic Rush Blaze's dimension and Sonic the Hedgehog's are in flux with one another, allowing the characters to travel from one to the other through a tear in the space-time continuum. Blaze is the only playable character in Sonic Rush aside from Sonic himself.
In her world, Blaze was the appointed guardian of the Sol Emeralds, a duty that isolated her from the companionship of others, as did her pyrokinesis. She came to believe that she never had to rely on anyone else, which led to her often carrying the weight of the world on her own shoulders. Her arch-foe in her world was Eggman Nega.
When Doctor Eggman came to her world and stole the Sol Emeralds, the Sol Emeralds summoned her through the space-time tear that lead to Sonic's world, where she set about recovering the Emeralds from him. Early on this mission she encountered Cream the Rabbit, who immediately took on the role of Blaze's guide and close friend, despite Blaze's misgivings. Blaze was surprised at the openness and naivety of the young rabbit, especially when she was invited into Cream's house almost immediately after meeting her for the first time. Cream set about teaching Blaze the meaning of friendship. They encountered several of Cream's friends (including Knuckles and Amy), who all suggested that Blaze ask Sonic for help. However, she was so convinced that she needed no help that when she and Sonic did actually cross paths, she attacked him. After a brief battle, she admitted her mistake.
Finally appreciating the value of friendship, and the need to accept help from others from time to time, Blaze began to realize the true power of the Sol Emeralds, and for the first time used their power to transform into Burning Blaze, her super form. As Burning Blaze, she and Super Sonic successfully stopped Eggman and Eggman Nega from taking over the universe, and at the same time repairing the tear in the space-time continuum and once again separating their worlds. Afterwards, she and Sonic promise to see each other again and say their goodbyes as they shake hands, being torn apart by their respective dimensions being returned to normal.
Blaze appears in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). In this game, she hails from the future. In the future, she constantly fights Iblis, along with the new character, her best friend Silver the Hedgehog. As a pyrokinetic in a world of psychokinetics, she was constantly teased and shunned by other children, with Silver being the only one who accepted her for who she was.
Blaze the Cat follows Silver throughout the game, who shows signs of insecurity when she is not around. She seems to talk to Silver more than anyone else. At the end of Silver's story, Silver tries to seal Iblis inside of his soul, but the Flames of Disaster won't accept him as the vessel. Blaze ends up sealing Iblis inside her soul, and begs Silver to use Chaos Control to seal them into another dimension. Silver refuses to because he says he could never do that to her, and that he doesn't know what he would do without her. Blaze replies, "You're still so naive. But, I...I've always liked that about you..." as she disappears and floats towards the sky in to another dimension. She then says, "Good luck, Silver." and drifts away. Later, Sonic and the others destroy Solaris in past, present, and future, which erases the events of the game from history, meaning Blaze still exists.
It seems that Sonic Rush takes place in an alternate reality from Sonic the Hedgehog, as Blaze doesn't seem to remember Sonic at all, though she did react with mild surprise when Mephiles mentioned a blue hedgehog. Sonic the Hedgehog, however, could have been a prequel-type game explaining Blaze's past and how she came to be in another dimension. Time may have reset so she would grow up in the dimension she was sent to, but many fans have yet to come to a decision on this subject.Others theorize that Blaze was sent away and ended up in Sonics world with the memory of the future and her world. So she doesn't know Sonic.
Blaze takes on the persona of Sir Percival in Sonic and the Black Knight. She is the last Knight of the Round Table Sonic will fight. During their fight, she falls from a high cliff, and Sonic and Caliburn save her in time. She is initially confused as to why Sonic saved her, as it is customary to kill an opponent after defeating them in battle. Sonic says that "whim is [his] other master" (the first being the wind, as he stated prior to the duel). Caliburn tells them to "save the hugs and kisses for later," causing her to blush. Sonic's defeat of Percival is what finally earns him Caliburn's respect and the official title of "Knight of the Wind". Percival goes off to put her sword in the shrine. She thinks Sonic is kidding at first when he explains his plan, but when she sees he means what he says, she bids him good luck. Despite only being Blaze's parallel, she can use fire. She is referred to as "Sir Percival" in-game, even though she is clearly female, since "Sir" is an honorific used by all knights regardless of gender (the term "Dame" only applies within the orders of chivalry).
It is interesting to note that, unlike the other storybook characters that appear as Sonic's friends, Sonic does not mistake Percival for the real Blaze upon meeting her. It is possible, however, that Sonic knew they were entirely different people by this point due to his encounters with Sir Lancelot and Sir Gawain (and possibly because of his previous experiences in Sonic and the Secret Rings). Another reason for this could be that, as the Sonic Rush games are out-of-continuity with the main series and the Storybook games, in addition to the events of Sonic Next Gen being retconned, Sonic simply does not know who Blaze is, though this theory is highly unlikely
Tikal the Echidna Editis a fictional character from the Sonic the Hedgehog series of games released by Sega.She first appeared in the game Sonic Adventure for Sega Dreamcast, which was released in Japan on December 23, 1998. Her sign is Capricorn. Tikal's Japanese voice-overs are done by Kaori Asoh while in her American games, Elara Distler does her voice.
Tikal is named after a ruined Mayan city whose name means "bread", or "Place of Voices", and her father, Pachacamac, shares the name of both an Inca solar deity and a city of the Inca Empire. In addition to this, the pyramid in the Mystic Ruins, an action stage in Sonic Adventure, resembles the one in the city of Tikal, and the Lost World level retains aspects of Maya ruins, such as the rotating snake and the jade. Tikal's attire is also derived from the Mayan civilization.
Tikal's role in the game, Sonic Adventure, is to show what happens thousands of years prior to the game. It shows how Tikal has pleaded with her father to stop all his "fighting, stealing, and killing," and how she struggled with him to be on the right path to peace. It shows how much she wanted Pachacamac to do what's right, to the point of being knocked unconscious.
Even though Pachacamac was stubborn and refused to listen to his own daughter, Tikal continued to beseech with them to stop. When this failed, Tikal even let the Master Emerald seal herself and Chaos in it. The remaining echidnas that lived made it their duty to protect the Master Emerald to assure that Chaos would never be released again though they eventually forgot the real reason why they were protecting it as Knuckles had no knowledge on Chaos or that it even existed.
A few thousand years later, Doctor Eggman found the ancient tablets describing the event and found Chaos released from a broken Master Emerald. When the Master Emerald broke again, Tikal strived for peace by subsequently transporting Sonic and his friends to the past, hoping they would see what would happen if Chaos obtained the emeralds again. Always trying her hardest, she finally succeeded in mollifying Chaos, stopping him from wreaking havoc on the rest of the world.
Unlike the other games in the series, Sonic Adventure relies on a strong storyline. Sonic Team took a trip to Central America to find inspiration for their next Sonic title, leading them to create the character, Tikal. The character shares a name with an assembly of ruins in Guatemala, the ancient Mayan city of Tikal.
Tikal is the daughter of Chief Pachacamac and is said to have originated from the same tribe as Knuckles the Echidna. Her mother had died when she was young, so she depended on her grandmother to raise her. Tikal respected her and believed everything she taught, resulting in her becoming a pacifist. After her grandmother died, Tikal always cherished her words and followed her wishes to oppose Pachacamac's power-hungry ways in invading other countries.
As time passed, Pachacamac and a group of his men stormed into the Master Emerald's temple to use the Master Emerald and Chaos Emeralds for total power. However, Tikal intervened and stood in his way. Ignoring her words, Pachacamac charged forward with his men, knocking over Tikal and many Chao on the way. This aroused the anger of Chaos, the guardian of the Chao, causing him to kill Pachacamac and his men. As he proceeded to destroy the world, Tikal rose from her unconsciousness and saw what Chaos had done. Running to the Master Emerald, she remembered the ancient poem about Chaos. Now realizing what it meant, she requested the Master Emerald to stop Chaos, which responded by sealing Chaos and Tikal in itself.
Several thousand years passed, and Doctor Eggman read the story about Chaos on an ancient stone tablet. In order to recruit Chaos' help in his quest to rule the world, Eggman shattered the Master Emerald, awakening Chaos and Tikal's spirit. Subsequently, Tikal transported Sonic and his friends to the past to know the trouble that befell her world before. Despite this, Chaos managed to obtain the Chaos Emeralds and used their negative energies to become Perfect Chaos. As he began destroying Station Square, Tikal appeared and told Sonic that Chaos had to be sealed in the Master Emerald once again. However, Sonic disagreed, as Chaos would still be angered, and history would likely repeat itself once again. Instead, he used the positive energy of the Chaos Emeralds to become Super Sonic, then battled and defeated Perfect Chaos. After being defeated by the positive energy of the Emeralds, Chaos was neutralized and calm. Tikal then explained to him that the Chao were alright and happy, and she and Chaos rose into the air and disappeared in a flash of light
Mighty the Armadillo Edit(also known as Maiti za Arumajiro マイティー・ザ・アルマジロ in Japan) is a character in the Sonic the Hedgehog universe. His character designer is Manabu KusunokiBeforeSonic was introduced, he was considered by Sega to be made into either a hedgehog or an armadillo, due to both species having the ability to roll into balls. Due to this, some believe that Mighty is the prototype of Sonic, or was evolved from the armadillo concept
Mighty's first appearance was in the arcade game SegaSonic the Hedgehog, where he was captured by Doctor Robotnik along with Sonic the Hedgehog and Ray the Flying Squirrel. They were taken to Robotnik Island and imprisoned, but managed to escape, destroying the island in the process.
In this game, Mighty played exactly like Sonic and Ray; he was fairly fast and could roll into a ball to perform the Spin Attack and Spin Jump.
Mighty reappeared in Knuckles' Chaotix for the Sega 32X. In the Japanese manual, he just happened to stumble across the island which the adventure is set on during his explorations. In the American manual, he is a friend of Knuckles the Echidna, and happens to visit "Carnival Island" when Eggman attacks.
In both manuals he is captured by Robotnik, and imprisoned in his "Combi-Confiner" machine. When Knuckles arrives, he can pick Mighty out of the machine and use him as a partner. Mighty plays very much like Sonic from the previous Sonic games, using his Spin Attack and Spin Dash. He also has the ability to kick off walls in order to gain height.
Ray the Flying Squirrel Editis a flying squirrel that only appeared as a main character in SegaSonic the Hedgehog, although he has an expanded role in certain otherSonic continuities. This is particularly notable in the Archie comics series, in which he is a member of the Chaotix team.
Ray has golden yellow skin, dark tan skin muzzle, inner ears and torso, blue eyes, a small tufted tip tapered hair at the top of the back of his head, making his head somewhat shaped like a teardrop, a flabby membrane of furry skin that connects the lower sides of his waist to his lower arms, small, triangular and perked ears, round and bulbous, shiny black nose and long and durable, club-shaped tail. He wears white gloves with large, sock-like cuffs, red sneakers embraced with a white buckle-strap and white socks. He later wears white gloves with large, sock-like cuffs, white socks, blue tennis shoes embraced with light blue white accents, metal soles and light blue collars and blue jackets with light blue cuffs.
During SegaSonic the Hedgehog, Ray was captured by Doctor Robotnik along with Mighty the Armadillo and Sonic himself. During their escape, the three jointly foiled one of Robotnik's plots. In the game, one of the earliest to feature a voice cast, Ray's voice was provided by Hiroko Yoshino (credited as Hiroko Kanamaru).
Ray's abilities include the basic Spin Dash (in his sole game appearance, he had the same game controls as both Sonic and Mighty), and he is also rather agile. Being a flying squirrel, he can likely glide through the air.
When Sonic the Hedgehog was ten years old, he infiltrated a group of Mobians that had been taken prisoner by Dr. Robotnik and were being taken to a high security prison/research facility. Ray was one of the unlucky inmates, and his timid nature was quite evident, though it didn't stop him from being courteous, gave up his seat to a girl. He soon made friends with Mighty the Armadillo and the young Sonic, the latter of whom boasted that he would soon have them all free again. Upon arriving at the prison, the two came to the aid of Fiona Fox, another prisoner who was targeted by the Robian warden for Robotnik's experimentation. For all his fear, Ray battled valiantly, stopping only when all three of them were targeted by laser weapons. After, Mighty and Ray in separate cages, while Fiona was taken to Robotnik himself. Liberated by Sonic and Mighty, he joined them in attacking Robotnik's lab, making his way towards a machine that was copying Fiona Fox in order to create an Auto Automaton. Ray grabbed the Power Stone fueling the machine and was then hit by an energy beam from a SWATbot, but instead of dying was trapped in some sort of time warp between Zones. Sonic dashed to get him, but he didn't succeed. Mighty, very upset over the whole thing, tore apart the facility but Sonic told Mighty to never give up hope. For years Mighty thought his friend was dead, only to return years later with Fiona and Nic the Weasel to find Ray alive and well. Ray was then freed from the Zone convergence by a shot from Nic's blaster pistol, and happily reunited with Mighty he accompanied him to Angel Island and became a member in the Chaotix.
Ray accompanied the Chaotix on numerous missions as time went on, helping them face numerous foes. Along with the other residents of Angel Island, he was sent to the Twilight Zone by the Dark Legion's Quantum Beam, only to be brought back later by Chaos Knuckles.
Following Knuckles' death, Ray was among those who joined in during the massive battle against the Xorda, during which Knuckles made his return and Sonic seemingly took his place. Ray attended Sonic's funeral before siding with the other Chaotix in remaining on Mobius' surface to do battle with Dr. Eggman and put an end to his threat once and for all.
Happily, Sonic returned a year later, having been in space due to the Xorda's Quantum Dial exploding, and Ray was one of many in attendance at Mina Mongoose's concert welcoming him home. When word reached the Chaotix of Knuckles' father Locke being imprisoned on Angel Island by the Dingoes, who with Eggman's aid had overthrown the Echidnas some time previously, Ray was with the Chaotix as they stormed the island to save the Guardian.
Later, Ray bravely battled alongside his friends as they faced the sorcerers Mammoth Mogul and Ixis Naugus and their minions the Destructix and Arachne for possession of the Sword of Acorns and Crown of Acorns, the last remnants of the Source of All. He and Mighty also interviewed Fiona in order to gain intelligence on Rouge the Bat after she arrived in Knothole seeking protection from Dr. Finitevus, the mad Echidna she had briefly joined forces with and then left. The duo also worked together with Espio the Chameleon as he infiltrated the Golden Hive Colony, former home of Chaotix members Charmy Bee and Saffron, to determine what had become of its inhabitants.
When Sonic had a remote control device attached to him by Dr. Eggman that sent him on a destructive rampage through Knothole, Ray worked with the other Chaotix to stop him, but unfortunately was easily dispatched. Despite this failure, the freed Sonic expressed his gratitude for having the group around, although he found Knuckles' efforts to help him during the fight a bit too over-zealous.
A much more pleasant duty found him attending the wedding of Freedom Fighters Bunnie Rabbot and Antoine D'Coolette. Unfortunately, the happy atmosphere brought about by that event was cut short as Dr. Eggman launched a massive assault on Knothole using his Egg Fleet while dispatching his nephew Snively Kintobor to attack Freedom HQ, the base the Freedom Fighters and Chaotix shared. Ray was amongst the many taken prisoner by Snively and transported to the Egg Grape Chamber, where he and the other inhabitants of Knothole were then saved by Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Fiona, and the computer NICOLE, who also arranged for them all to be transported to the city of New Mobotropolis.
When word reached the city of the rise of a new Enerjak, an old foe of the Chaotix, Ray accompanied his friends as they stormed the King Frederick Airfield in a bid to reach Angel Island and aid a missing Knuckles. Convinced to remain in the city by Sally Acorn, they were then faced with a horrible revelation as the new Enerjak unmasked himself, revealing his identity as a brainwashed Knuckles. Ray was among the many who charged Enerjak in an effort to stop him, only to be thwarted by his immense powers. After the battle between Enerjak and Super Sonic, Ray returned to Angel Island with the other Chaotix to build a bridge between Angel Island and the new Shrine Island, now the resting place of the Master Emerald.
When Sonic and the Chaotix attacked the ravaged New Megaopolis, Ray, Charmy and Saffron were responsible for setting explosives in one of Eggman's main satellite towers which was his primary means of communication with other sections of Mobius, while the others attacked the Dark Egg Legion. The three found themselves cornered when the Dark Egg Legion ended up retreating to their location.
Jet the Hawk Edit
Jet the Hawk is the 14-year-old hawk leader of the Babylon Rogues, and is often nicknamed the "Legendary Wind Master" due to his mastery of Extreme Gear. He's Sonic's most potent rival in Sonic Riders, and he uses a Type-J board that allows him to reach high speeds. Jet also possesses a mysterious "control box", passed down from his ancestors, that is said to awaken the fabled Babylon Garden. Only the power of the Chaos Emeralds can activate its fabled power.
Some fans believe Jet to be modeled after Bean the Dynamite from Sonic the Fighters, and in some cases, people even mistook Jet to be Bean. Nintendo Power magazine played a joke on this fact by giving an image of Jet a caption reading; "Bean? Is that you, Bean? Oh! How we've missed you!". Few people notice that Jet has the opposite color scheme to Sonic. Sonic is blue with green eyes, but Jet is green with blue eyes. Scourge the Hedgehog from Archie comics has the exact same color scheme.
Jet first appeared when he is chased by Sonic because he has stolen a Chaos Emerald.He later enter the EX World Grand Prix with Wave and Storm.He advances to the finals of the EX World Grand Prix and unfairly wins after Wave detonates an explosive placed on the bottom of Sonic's board near the end of the race. Again, he races against Sonic after Doctor Eggman steals the control box in order to steal the ancient treasure of Babylon. This time, he is defeated fairly. Sonic, who retrieved the box from Eggman, willingly hands it to Jet, as he is not intending to use it.
At the doors of the Babylonian Fortress, Jet, Wave, and Storm awaken and are confronted by the Babylon Guardian, a large purple genie, and only succeed in defeating it with the help of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy. They discover the fabled Babylonian Treasure to be the ancient Extreme Gear Magic Carpet.
Jet and Sonic finally decide to be more friendly to each other. Jet concedes to the fact that Sonic is faster than him. However, this doesn't make him want to beat Sonic any less than in the beginning.
Wave the Swallow EditWave the Swallow(initially called "Web the Sparrow" by fans due to translation errors) is a purple anthropomorphic swallow, the Babylon Rogues' resident technical genius, and a bit of a trash-talker.
She is 18 years old, and is 110 cm (3'7") and weighs 20 to 25 kg (44 to 55 lbs). She's the daughter of the tech expert of the Rogues' previous generation, and her knowledge of Extreme Gear far surpasses that of Tails and Doctor Eggman. Because of this knowledge, she is brimming with self-confidence; and as a result she "gives advice understandable to herself but not to others". However, she still considers Tails and Eggman to be worthy mechanical opponents.
Although she looks on Jet the Hawk as an "unreliable younger brother" and can be quite stubborn, she follows his leadership.
In the EX World Grand Prix, she beats Amy Rose at Splash Canyon, but is knocked out of the tournament by Tails at Green Cave. Wave uses a Type-W airboard, which is specially designed to fly well, and the red jewel she wears around her neck is actually a small computer capable of playing back media files via holographic projection.
Wave is something of a voice of reason amongst the Rogues, often reminding Jet and Storm of their responsibilities. Wave has something of a rivalry with Tails, in which she scorns the way he made Sonic's Extreme Gear, calls him "Shorty" a number of times, and also "a twerp" in one of her mission reports, though this diminishes by the end of the game. She also has a strained relationship with Storm, with one such instance criticizing his skills on Extreme Gear. In a cutscene before Sky Road, she angers Knuckles by calling him a "Red Mutt".
Wave often refuses to admit when someone has talent, as noted in some of her mission reports. She either says that she will continue to deny a person's skill or flat-out denies that they have any skill at all. She also says in the opening of White Cave, that if she doesn't take charge, nothing will ever get done.
Storm the Albatross EditStorm the Albatross is a hulking, anthropomorphic albatross and Jet's right hand man. Standing at a height of 140 cm (4ft 7in) and weighing 80kg(176.3lbs), Storm is an imposing sight and powerful force, capable of destroying just about anything. He is 19 years old. Despite being committed to his duties, Storm has a quick temper and his clumsiness constantly succeeds in embarrassing himself and the other Rogues. He also tends to stutter whenever he becomes excited or when he's in distress. He is a rival of Knuckles the Echidna. He also makes a brief appence in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a collectable sticker.
During the EX World Grand Prix, Storm loses to Knuckles at the location "Egg Factory". This defeat is compounded by the fact that just before the match they both tried to fight each other (even though they both end up hitting one of Eggman's race robots during the struggle). Later, under orders from Jet, Storm discovers a page of Dr. Eggman's diary stating that Eggman had deceived the Rogues into believing the treasure within the Babylonian Fortress was a gem.
Storm uses Type-S Extreme Gear, which is capable of keeping balance when smashing through obstacles. However, he seems to be the least skilled of the Rogues, partly because Knuckles easily knocks him off his board in the introduction; in the Babylon Rogues story, he falls off his board when meeting Jet and Wave after stealing Eggman's diary entry.
Storm is very loyal to Jet, and believes his loyalty is greater than anyone else's. Because of this, he is always ready for an assignment. Storm's profile on "Sonic Channel" actually lists Jet as one of his "favorite things".
Storm is the strongest member of the Babylon Rogues, but is stereotypically unitelligent. He, like the rest of his team is a specialist at using Extreme Gear, and often uses his brute strength to knock down other racers.
Shade the Echidna EditShade the Echidna is a new character in the video game Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. As a Lieutenant with the Marauders she is an important spy, and her job is not easy. She has livedwith others of her lost clan within the Twilight Cage for over 4000 years (from Earth's perspective). She is the brains of the group. Within her clan there have been a lot of individuals who do not harmonize with the whole group, and have interests or ideas that frequently conflict with each other. These persons are constantly striving and competing for a position of superiority or authority over others. Shade is first seen assisting in the capture of the final Chaos Emerald and takes Knuckles the Echidna prisoner while doing so. She's next seen trying to stop Sonic and friends from entering Metropolis by causing an avalanche, but they use an alternate route made by Doctor Eggman. After she believes to have fulfilled her duty of stopping Sonic, she goes to Angel Island and meets up with the rest of the Nocturnus and Lord Ix. While on the island, Sonic and Knuckles confront her and Ix, and Ix reveals his plan to the two. After she discovers Ix's plan to conquer Sonic's world, Ix the Echidna attempts to kill her, only to be saved by Knuckles. She says that she is impressed only with Sonic and Knuckles, and that she is hard to impress. She then becomes Sonic's ally for the rest of the game. She joins with Sonic and friends because she only wanted to bring the Nocturnus back to Sonic's world - not take over it as well (Ix's goal.)
Eggman Nega EditEggman Nega (エッグマンネガ Egguman Nega), also known as Doctor Eggman Nega is the third most recurring villain in the Sonic game series and has been the main villainand final boss of all three games he's been in: Sonic Rush, Sonic Rivals, and Sonic Rush Adventure. He is the primary nemesis of Blaze the Cat and Silver the Hedgehog. His design appears reminiscent to the older Dr. Robotnik from the Genesis Sonic games, albeit with the colors reversed, a longer nose, a white mustache (suggesting he is at an eldery age), pointy blue sunglasses, and visor-styled goggles instead of normal ones.
In the Sonic Rush series, Eggman Nega (spelled NEGA, with all caps) is introduced as an extra-dimensional counterpart of Doctor Eggman from Blaze's home dimension. He is more cruel and calculating than the Eggman from Sonic's world, although the two often work together, and he has sent Blaze's world into ruin, which is why he sets out for the Sol Emeralds. He is eerily polite for such a cold and calculating person. His downside, however, is that he can sometimes lose track of important details while making unnecessary speeches.
While Eggman himself is first thought to be the primary antagonist in Sonic Rivals, the player soon finds out that Eggman Nega has captured Eggman and is disguising himself as him. In Sonic Rivals, Eggman Nega is from 200 years in the future (which reflects the Blaze of Sonic the Hedgehog). Using a special camera, he turns several objects and characters into cards, with the objective of turning the world into a card that he will be able to control. During the somewhat ambiguous ending of the game, Nega is captured inside a card of his own by Silver, yet it was never revealed how he freed himself from the card that he was imprisoned in for the sequel. In Sonic Rivals 2, Eggman Nega tries to power and awaken an inter-dimensional monster called the "Ifrit" to destroy the world by using the Chaos Emeralds and the Chao to do it after reading old files of Professor Gerald Robotnik. However his plans were foiled once again and now he's stuck in the ifrit's Dimention.
Marine the Racoon Editis a character who debuted in Sonic Rush Adventure. Marine lives in Blaze the Cat's dimension, currently living on Southern Island whereher house is located. She has orange and brown fur and blue eyes and wears green and white tube top, black skin-tight shorts and green and orange shoes. She speaks with an exaggerated Australian accent, using Australian slang words such as 'strewth' and 'bonza' and adding the word 'mate' to the end of sentences
In Sonic Rush Adventure, Marine dreams of becoming a captain one day, so she can sail around the world, but wrecks her ship, the S.S. Marine, by forgetting to install the brakes. Tails decides to help her repair her ship, and Sonic goes to find parts to repair Marine's vessel. Unfortunately, Marine and her new-found friends find themselves confronted by a dangerous menace: the pirate Captain Whisker. In terms of personality, she is rather scatterbrained and so often acts before she thinks. She is relatively bossy and attention-seeking, and characters occasionally find her annoying, but she has many koala friends who are pleased to help Sonic and his companions. Marine also seems to have some sort of special power, as in the final boss fight of the game, she is seen shooting a light green ball of energy from her fist. This ability was never fully explained.
She seems to be afraid of ghosts, but she will not tell Sonic and friends. At the end of Sonic Rush Adventure, Marine made a ship called S.S. Super Marine. She did not forget to install the brakes
Chip Editis a small, burgundy colored, brown-eyed flying animal who debuts in Sonic Unleashed. He has a white tuft on the top of his head, similar to his tail, has tiny translucent turquoisewings on his back and a green bauble on his neck. He was first seen in a Japanese manga adaption of Sonic Unleashed. In this, Sonic wakes up after Dr. Eggman's laser gun mutates him into a monstrous version of himself. Chip is seen lying on the ground nearby, and Sonic attempts to make sure that he is okay. Chip flies away, afraid at first, though he soon realizes Sonic is good.
Light Gaia is Chip's real name. Born at the beginning of time, Light Gaia is the opposite of Dark Gaia, and is the representation of light, day, and rebirth. He awoke when Dr. Eggman split the world apart with his beam. Due to the premature awakening, he lost his memories, but regained them when Sonic restored the sixth of the Chaos Emeralds.
His purpose is to put the world back together when Dark Gaia destroys it. Dark Gaia dwells within the Earth's core for eons, feeding on the negative feelings and energies of the Earth's denizens, and emerging when it was grown strong enough. It is Light Gaia's job to defeat Dark Gaia and return him to the Earth.
To defeat Dark Gaia, he creates the Gaia Colossus out of the seven Temples of Gaia. In the end, when the planet begins to piece itself back together, Chip throws the exhausted Sonic back up to the Earth's surface and allows himself to be resealed within the Earth along with Dark Gaia. When Sonic comes to, he sees Chip lying unconscious on the ground, similar to their meeting, but it turns out to be an illusion as he quickly disappears. However, his necklace remains on the ground. Sonic puts the necklace on as a bracelet as Chip assures him telepathically that he will never forget him, and that he will always be with Sonic, a part of the Earth he treads. Due to his sacrifice it is unknown if he will return in future Sonic games, though it is likely. Chip loves chocolate, which he carries throughout the story. He also offers many people a chocolate bar when he meets them. He loves food a lot, as seen in one cutscene in Apotos; Sonic is trying to talk to him, but he is distracted by an ice cream stand and completely ignoring him. When they work with Tails to save the kidnapped Professor Pickle, he is mostly concerned that the Professor might be starving to death, though Tails assures him that Eggman is feeding him; even Eggman isn't that cruel. Chip is playful and somewhat not that smart and goofy. Before a boss, he will act threatening and scary (a contrast to how he isn't, as seen in Sonic: Night of the Werehog, where he is genuinely terrified of the ghosts in the mansion that he and Sonic visit and even faints dead away after Sonic teasingly scares him with a flashlight). Chip is one of the few people who can actually annoy Sonic
Caliburn the sword Editis a talking weapon used by Sonic the Hedgehog throughout most of the game Sonic and the Black Knight. He is voiced by Casey Robertson in the Englishversion and by Hiroaki Hirata in the Japanese version. In the English version, he acts like a proper and polite gentleman, which initially clashes with Sonic's easy-going attitude. He is also shown to be a bit of a strict teacher, usually calling a Sonic a fool when he does something that Caliburn disapproves of.
At the end of the second mission, Sonic pulls out Caliburn. To his surprise, he finds the sword has a mind of its own and can talk. Caliburn doesn't approve of Sonic initially, calling him a "Knave" at first (Sonic likewise, didn't get along with Caliburn, calling him an "oversized letter opener" and mocking him at most any chance he got), but the two begin to work together over time. He sticks by Sonic's side throughout the entire game and joins him in battling monsters and the Royal Knights. By the time Sonic defeated Sir Percival, Caliburn "accepts" Sonic and dubs him Sir Sonic, Knight of the Wind. During Sonic's final battle with the recently revealed antagonist Merlina, Caliburn is broken in half by her vicious attacks. Sonic's determination repairs Caliburn, transforming him into the legendary Excalibur and transforms Sonic into Excalibur-Sonic. They work together and defeat the Dark Queen, the final boss.
In the end, Caliburn reveals that he is the one to decide who receives the crown. The Royal Knights are shocked to realize that this means Sonic himself was the TRUE King Arthur the entire time.
Chaos Edit(also known as Chaos 0) is the main antagonist in the video game Sonic Adventure for the Sega Dreamcast. Chaos is an immortal, ageless god-like creature that seems to becomposed entirely of water (ironically Sonic has a weakness of water), but is also said to be concentrated Chaos Emerald energy (in Sonic X, Doctor Eggman implies that it is composed of "Chaos energy in a liquid state"). It was trapped inside the Master Emerald for thousands of years before being released by Dr. Eggman in a bid to conquer the world. It was also the original guardian of the Chaos Emeralds, Chao, and the Master Emerald. In Sonic Adventure it absorbed the negative energy of the Chaos Emeralds to attain its final and strongest form.
Chaos was originally a good natured Chao. Contact with the positive energy of the Chaos Emeralds transformed it into a water-like creature. It used the power to guarantee clear water around the altar of the Master Emerald, and to protect its fellow Chao. However 4,000 year ago, the leader of the Echidna tribe, Pachacamac, tried to steal the Emeralds so he could use them against his enemies. His warriors stormed the shrine where the Emeralds were, harming many Chao in the process. Chaos, in a fit of rage, absorbed the negative power of the Chaos Emeralds, and transformed into Perfect Chaos. The resulting floods destroyed the civilization. Pachacamac's daughter, Tikal, linked her consciousness with Chaos's via prayer, and sealed them both into the Master Emerald. It is from this point in history that the emeralds were called "Chaos Emeralds". Nobody knows what happened to the Emeralds after that.
E-102 Gamma EditE-102 Gamma is a fictional character in the Sonic the Hedgehog universe. He is 215 cm (7ft 1in) tall, weighs precisely 825.256 kg (1819.378 lb), and wields a machine gun that cantransform into a 15.5 cm smart missile launcher. His character designer was either Yuji Uekawa or Takashi Iizuka. He was first introduced in the game Sonic Adventure as a playable character. Being a robot, he has no gender, but Amy refers to him as a "he" when she stops the fight between Sonic and Gamma, and his voice actor is male as well. Gamma's gameplay involves the player utilizing his missile launcher to destroy enemies and eventually reach a boss/target within a given time limit. The more enemies the player destroys, the larger the score and extension of time for the given level. E-102 Gamma is a robot line created by Dr. Eggman. As such, it's name can refer to many characters in the Sonic universe. Nearly all Gamma models are identical in design, par slight modifications such as expanded weaponry. While they vary in rank, Gammas are considered a profound model by Eggman, and thus usually have a close role with their master, (somewhat replacing the traitrous Metal Sonic as a right-hand minion or personal muscle). Because of their form and origin however, nearly all E-102s play a tragic role in their starring game-102 Gamma, the second robot of the E-100 series line (technically third including E-100 Alpha), was created by Dr. Eggman. E-102 Gamma is powered by (and later influenced and ultimately controlled by) a captured pink Flicky held inside the robot. Although E-102 Gamma was created by and made to work under Dr. Eggman, assisting in empowering the Chaos creature, he turns against his maker's will, and devotes his short existence to freeing the animals contained in the other E-100 units.
Immediately upon his 'birth', he is ordered by Dr. Eggman to pass a unique training course and to fight his older 'brother', E-101 Beta, to become a crew member on the Egg Carrier and prove the efficiency of his design. After defeating Beta in combat, his first task on board involves capturing a frog who had absorbed Chaos' tail (namely Big's pet "Froggy", who also held a Chaos Emerald that Eggman desired). The mission also serves as a contest against his younger brothers, E-103 Delta, E-104 Epsilon and E-105 Zeta, who were all modelled upon Gamma. Gamma passes the mission but as a result of his success, he is forced to watch his less-successful brothers be exiled for their failure and remodelled for generic 'badnik' duty in undisclosed locations. Gamma is distinctly haunted by the memory of Delta turning to look at him as he was warped away; this memory comes up several times later in the game.
Eggman then tells Gamma, now the sole elite robot on board, to acquire a bird from a girl (Amy Rose) held captive in a prison cell on the Egg Carrier. Upon searching for the cell, Gamma accidentally discovers a disabled E-101 Beta in a lab, undergoing a torturous reconstruction process thru machines. Though somewhat disturbed by this sight, he quickly disregards this and returns to his mission. After finding Amy, Gamma demands the bird only for Amy to bluntly refuse, her affection toward the animal confusing him. He quotes himself, "Why save that which is useless to you? Does not compute." The bird then flies up close to Gamma and stares him in the eyes. Somehow affected by this, Gamma suddenly experiences an unbearable pain, before suddenly freeing both Amy and the bird from their cell, urging them to leave. Surprised and touched by this, Amy exclaims that Gamma must be different from the other robots and tells him she'll be his friend.
Gamma has no time to think about what he's just done before he is called up to the deck to dispose of the trespassing Sonic and Tails. A grueling battle ensues with Gamma and Sonic, though Amy stands in between them, begging them to stop and explaining to Sonic that Gamma is a friend. Both reluctantly submit to Amy's pleas and back down. As the Egg Carrier begins to lose altitude and slowly fall to the earth below, Amy encourages Gamma to free himself, explaining the virtues of friendship before they evacuate. As Gamma touches down in the Mystic Ruins, he thinks constantly about his past and the words of Amy. After overlooking scant memories from his 'life', Gamma determines that Dr. Eggman is evil, and deletes his master registration program. He then decides to begin a 'rescue' mission, locating his newly registered "friends" (the rest of the E-100 series) and 'freeing' the birds or other animals trapped inside them.
Gamma first finds and destroys Delta in the Windy Valley, then locates Epsilon in Red Mountain on Angel Island, and destroys him as well, freeing the animals. Afterwards, he returns to the Egg Carrier to find Beta and Zeta. After destroying an upgraded and much more heavily fortified version of Zeta, he overlooks his progress, locating a final two E-series models; E-101 Beta and E-102 Gamma, himself. He goes to the deck for the final confrontation with the newly rebuilt, advanced E-101mkII. Despite Beta's numerous enhancements, Gamma eventually succeeds in destroying Beta.
Before exploding however, Beta gathers up one last ounce of strength and suddenly blasts Gamma at point-blank range, severely damaging him. As Gamma limps away from the battle field, the bird that was inside Beta flies up close and stirs one final memory in Gamma, of a family of birds together. Gamma deactivates, collapses and explodes, freeing the pink bird inside, who unites with the other bird. After that, they reunite with Amy's blue bird companion. The pink bird later follows Amy to Station Square after it is destroyed by Perfect Chaos. While Gamma himself could not be there, the bird represents him in spirit.
Despite Gamma's betrayal of Eggman, the doctor continued to build robots based on the E-102 model after Gamma's demise
Emerl/ Gizoid EditEmerl is a fictional character from the Sonic the Hedgehog video game Sonic Battle.Emerl is an ancient weapon known as the Gizoid discovered by Professor Gerald Robotnik. Gerald attempted to nullify his destructive programming, but failed. In an attempt to curb it, he gave it the same qualities as his creation, Shadow the Hedgehog, a "soul" based on that of Gerald's granddaughter, Maria Robotnik.
Doctor Eggman takes the Gizoid in the hopes of using it to rule the world, but tosses it aside when he finds no use for it. Sonic the Hedgehog finds it on a beach, names it Emerl out of a sheer lack of imagination, and he and his friends teach it how to fight. As the player plays the Story Mode, Emerl learns the abilities of the various other characters.
Emerl's principal power is perfect copy: he can observe a technique, skill, or trait in action and then remember and copy that technique with unnerving accuracy and precision. This apparently extends to all aspects of a target outside of its physical form, enabling to mimic running speed, jumping ability, stance, voices, attacks, and even coloration. Interestingly, Emerl also has a set of skills he acquired 4000 years ago before he was shut down; powerful and destructive, they can be unlocked by the player in a special Colosseum gauntlet that is only available in Emerl's Story Mode.
Emerl can also mix and match techniques to suit his taste: Each character has a three hit combo followed by a finisher that sends the enemy flying. Emerl can absorb each of the four different attacks from any character and create an original combo from the data he has (Like so: Rouge ATK 1 -> Shadow ATK 2 -> Sonic ATK 3 -> Sonic Finisher). The combinations are extremely widespread, and because each move has its own power and speed, range from fast to slow, weak to strong, and so on and so forth. If Emerl himself is not physically capable of performing a technique (Tails' Flight ability, for example), he mimics it in another way (in this case, by spinning his arms around his body like a helicopter). This is especially apparent in the case of Chaos' attacks: he is liquid and malleable, which Emerl is not. So, the latter copies by extending his arms outward with a cable-like cord to lengthen his reach. He has shown himself to be capable of Chaos Control (copying Shadow's skills) and can summon a Chao to attack enemies (Cream's skills). Emerl can also summon and manifest weapons for certain attacks (Amy's Hammer techniques and Gamma's attacks).
In Sonic Battle, Emerl is a unique character: During the Story Modes, after any battle Emerl participated in the player receives a card for each character that also participated in the fight (Gamma Clones, Phi, and Emerl himself not included). For example: Sonic, Rouge, Knuckles, and Emerl all participate. Emerl will gain a skill card for each of the former three. What's more, he will also gain skill points after a battle based on how well he fought. If the player wins the battle, he gets one point. If the player wins without getting knocked out once, he gets two points, and finally, if the player wins without taking any damage whatsoever, he will gain five skill points. These points have a cap of 500, and each skill can range from 5-30 skill points to use, the most expensive generally being the most powerful, such as the Ultimate Series. During each Story Mode, there are opportunities to "train" with Emerl and the character accompanying him. During these battles, players will take control of Emerl himself and face off against the character he is following.
Pachacamac (or Chief Pachacamac, known as Pochacamac in one comic book and pronounced Pachakama パチャカマ in Japan) was a reddish-brown echidna with yellow stripes and blue eyes. He lived roughly four thousand years before the main events of the Sonic continuity, as a leader and warlord of the Knuckles Tribe (the echidna civilization of which Knuckles himself is the last descendant). Tikal the Echidna is his daughter.
In Sonic Adventure, his first appearance and only speaking role in the games, Pachacamac is shown with a furry muzzle (unlike other echidnas, possibly due to his advanced age) and he exhibits a constant squint; although this quirk was absent from his Sonic X portrayal.
Being long-dead, Pachacamac has only ever been seen in flashbacks: during Sonic Adventure thanks to Tikal (in her discorporated form as a glowing ball), and in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, when Imperator Ix briefly recalls the face of his ancient foe.
During the flashback scenes in Sonic Adventure, when the characters are briefly shown the Mystic Ruins Knuckles Clan city during Pachacamac's time, talking to the various echidna citizens reveals some details about the clan chief. He is said to have inherited his chieftain rank from his mother, a peacable woman whom Tikal takes after. Although Pachacamac initially loved his daughter, he lost all compassion when his wife died, becoming a cold and distant father - as well as a greedy warmonger, directing his people into a series of conquests against neighboring nations and tribes (including another group of Echidnas known as the Nocturnus Clan, as Sonic Chronicles later reveals). Tikal did try to talk her father out of his belligerent ways, but ultimately failed.
Later, along with a group of Echidna warriors, he tried to take the Chaos Emeralds and Master Emerald from the Chao, as he considered the power of the Emeralds key to the Knuckles Clan's continued victories and survival. Tikal tried to defend the shrine and the Chao living there, but Pachacamac ignored her pleas and ordered the warriors to go on. Tikal is pushed aside and the Chao of the shrine were knocked out in the process. This angered their guardian Chaos who appeared and used the Chaos Emeralds to become Perfect Chaos. Pachacamac and his warriors were killed and the Echidna city was largely destroyed. This caused his daughter Tikal to rush to the Master Emerald to plead that it got Chaos under control, resulting in both of them being sealed away for thousands of years.
In the Sonic X continuity, Pachacamac's role and backstory is essentially the same as that of the games
Bark the Polar Bear EditBark the Polarbear is a yellow polar bear who appears in the games Sonic the Fighters and Fighters Megamix alongside Bean the Dynamite. He lacks speed and has a low IQ, but his incredible strength makes up for it. He has the comical ability of flattening an opponent's head in Sonic the Fighters. He specializes in throw moves.
He and Bean appear in issue #160 of the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comic, where they ambush Sonic on his birthday, but Bark finds himself outnumbered and surrenders to Fiona Fox. He also made a cameo appearance in issue #50. He also used to be part of a mercenary group which included Fiona and Bean and was led by Nic the Weasel. He have been recently featured as prominent characters in the comic.
Bark also makes an appearance in Shenmue as a collection toy.
Bark was also recently featured in Sonic Channel's character poll.
- His theme song is Fairy of A.I.F, which was remixed for Sonic Gems Collection.
- He has a similar quality to Shadow the Hedgehog, Jet the Hawk, Silver the Hedgehog, and Storm, because they all have a triangular fur/feather patch on their chests.
- In Sonic the Fighters, Bark's fur in his character select picture is darker than usual.
- He made cameo appearance on the cover of Sonic X #15, Merry Eggs-Mas. He is a doll on Decoe's hands.
Bean the Dynamite EditBean the Dynamite (ビーン・ザ・ダイナマイト, Bīn za Dainamaito) is a green duck in the game Sonic the Fighters, also known as Sonic Championship outside of Japan.Bean likes to throw bombs at his enemies, and seems to have an endless supply of them. The character was modeled after Bin and Pin, two characters in the arcade game Dynamite Dux. He has also starred in Fighters Megamix, along with Bark the Polarbear, and made a cameo in Virtua Striker 2 where Bean is featured in an unlockable team.
Mephiles the Dark EditMephiles the Dark (pronounced [mɛfɨləs] or [mə'fɪliːz] in English) was a character and was one part of the being that was the primary antagonist from Sonicthe Hedgehog.
Mephiles has three forms; the first and original was a dark, blackish-purple formless ooze or gas with some gaseous qualities. In his second form, Mephiles appears almost identical to Shadow the Hedgehog, aside from having green eyes with slit pupils, no visible mouth, and the fact that everything that is red on Shadow is a pale powder blue on him. His third form (and his preferred one when he uses his abilities) was a crystalline, anthropomorphic hedgehog form resembling the appearance of other hedgehogs in the Sonic series, such as Sonic himself; in this form, he has no visible nose, mouth, or feet. His name was based on the one of the names of Mephistopheles related to the legend of Faust.
Mephiles was accidentally created during the Solaris Project, under the supervision of the Duke of Soleanna. He was actually an extension of Solaris himself; his conscious part. He was sealed in the "Scepter of Darkness" by Shadow the Hedgehog, who had traveled through time to ten years before the events of the game. In the present, Dr. Eggman accidentally releases him while trying to steal the scepter from Shadow and Rouge, and runs away scared, not even bothering to send his robots to attack him. Mephiles then transformed into a copy of Shadow via absorbing his shadow, and sends Shadow and Rouge into the future after he realizes that Shadow doesn't know who he is. He seeks to get the Chaos Emeralds and bring pain and despair to Princess Elise, with the goals of making her cry, therefore releasing the "Flames of Disaster" (a.k.a. Iblis) and then fusing with him, to reunite them both as a single entity, Solaris.
To accomplish this, he tells Silver the Hedgehog and Blaze the Cat that Sonic the Hedgehog was the cause of Iblis being released, which led to the destruction of their world. Sonic was, thus, referred to as the "Iblis Trigger". He sends the two back in time, making them believe that killing Sonic would save the future.
Along the way, as all three storylines progress, the three main characters discover how Mephiles was somehow involved in the incident which created the "Flames of Disaster", wielded by Princess Elise. Mephiles has a very pivotal role in all of the storylines, throughout the course of the game. He has the most direct role in Shadow's Story, where Mephiles is shown to hold a particular hate for Shadow since it was he who sealed him in the Scepter of Darkness. He also has a major role in Silver's Story, as he manipulates Silver and Blaze into attempting to kill Sonic so that he can finally fuse with Iblis. While he himself has a very minor role in Sonic's Story, where he is only seen when Sonic, Knuckles, and Tails are eavesdropping on his conversation with Silver and Blaze that ends with them time-traveling back to present-day Soleanna, his actions are still very much prevalent to Sonic's Story, especially with his encounters with Silver. Mephiles attempts to break Shadow's will to fight and join him, much like Black Doom had, by revealing that in the current future, the world, and an unwilling Omega, would turn against Shadow and imprison him in suspended animation (Mephiles keeps his hatred for Shadow a secret), attempting to get Shadow to join him, saying they would both get revenge on the world. However, Shadow proved immune to Mephiles' tactics, saying that he would determine his own destiny, leading to a battle between the two of them. Though Shadow takes the upper-hand, Mephiles knocks him into a wall with an energy blast and incapacitates him when he lowers his guard, but Omega intervenes and drives Mephiles off. Later, Omega meets Mephiles again, who reveals to Omega that he was one that would imprison Shadow in the future, leading to the robot shooting him up with two miniguns. As Shadow (along with Silver after Shadow foiled his second assassination attempt on Sonic) had traveled back into the past at that point, he learned of Mephiles' true nature (and Silver learned that Mephiles had lied about Sonic being the Iblis Trigger).
He, along with Omega and Rouge, later meet him again. Again, Mephiles offers Shadow a chance to join him, but Shadow, knowing Mephiles' true intentions, flat-out refused the offer. Mephiles is fought again (he's the final boss in Shadow's story), and loses. After his seeming defeat, however, Mephies proves immune to being imprisoned in a new Scepter of Darkness that Shadow tried to use on him, saying that it wouldn't work on him anymore (he implies that the reason he was immune was due to his time traveling to ten years ago, due to his line of "The "I" of now absorbed your power through your shadow in the past."). Mephiles then uses two Chaos Emeralds to create an army of clones of himself. He then boasts to Shadow that he can't defeat him, and asks why he is even bothering to protect a world that will eventually turn against him. Shadow responds by saying, "If the whole world decides to become my enemy, then I will fight like I always have", and, mirroring a similar ability from the Sonic X adaptation of Sonic Adventure 2, removes his bracelets and destroys the entire army in a massive burst of energy.
In the Last Story, Mephiles, having either escaped or simply survived the fight with Shadow, finds the purple Chaos Emerald, uses it to warp to Sonic and Elise's location shortly after they escape Eggman's exploding Egg Carrier, blinds them with the Emerald's powers, and projects an energy spear that impales Sonic through the back, killing him instantly. Elise cries over his death and, as a result, releases Iblis, allowing Mephiles to fuse with him and transform into Solaris. It is also revealed in the Last Story that his lie to Silver and Blaze about Sonic being the Iblis Trigger was actually a half-truth: Sonic is indeed the Iblis Trigger, but his death would not stop Iblis's resurrection; in fact, his death would be the very event that would release Iblis from Elise's soul. The key to Iblis's freedom was an event that would cause Elise to become so consumed with despair or guilt that she would cry, as she had formed a very close friendship with Sonic.
Due to Sonic and Elise's actions in the past, Mephiles was erased from history
Erazor djinnEditIn his story, he was punished for misdeeds, and was to remain in his lamp until he had granted the wishes of 1,000 people. When he had fulfilled his sentence, he had a hatred for the creator of the
story. He began to take over the Arabian Nights, twisting the words that supported the stories into spirits that followed his command. The genie attempts to absorb the pages of the book, so he can control the entire world of Arabian Nights, as well as make his way into Sonic's world.
When Erazor first met Sonic, he quickly tried to kill him. After that, he asked Shahra if she had the seven World Rings (not paying much attention to Sonic), and finding she doesn't he shoots a flame at her as "punishment." Sonic takes the hit, and Erazor says that if Sonic doesn't bring him the Seven World Rings before the flame goes out, his life is forfeit, and leaves. He meets Sonic and Shahra again later when he's summoning the Ifrit, saying that he decided to let the Ifrit burn the remaining pages in the book. Erazor then asks Sonic if he has the Seven World Rings, and Sonic complains about Erazor calling him a rat. Erazor, figuring that Sonic doesn't have the rings, tells Sonic that he'd "better hurry it up" and leaves.
When Sonic and Shahra break into Erazor's Night Palace they meet him again. When Erazor asks if Sonic has the rings and Sonic says that he should look for them himself, Erazor responds "I'll carve you to pieces until I find every last one of them" assuming (correctly) that Sonic has the rings. Sonic beats Erazor and forces him back. When Erazor sees that Sonic has the rings, he plays on Shahra's feelings for him (or that she used to have for him), and gets the rings. Erazor then attempts to sacrifice Sonic to obtain the rings and open the gateway between worlds, but Shahra gets in the way of his attack to save Sonic and dies in Sonic's arms, asking for his forgiveness. Nonetheless, Erazor's ritual is successful, and he is empowered by the rings. However, without Sonic as the proper offering, Erazor doesn't obtain complete control over the rings and mutates into Alf-Layla-wa-Layla, a hideous, incomplete monster. Fortunately, some of the World Rings also trigger a transformation in Sonic, creating the darker and more violent Darkspine Sonic, and Erazor is defeated.
Erazor survives the fight, and mocks Sonic, saying that he's immortal and will always come back after defeat. Sonic, however, reveals that he has Erazor's lamp (given to him by Shahra and reverted to its normal form when she died), and states "the genie of the lamp is supposed to grant three wishes, am I right?" Despite Erazor's refusal to ever grant a wish for Sonic, he is helpless against the power of his lamp and forced to do so. Sonic wishes for Erazor to resurrect Shahra, restore the works of the Arabian Nights, and seal himself into his lamp until the end of time. After granting the wishes, Erazor begs for Shahra to help him, but she refuses, leaving him to be sucked into his lamp. At the end, Sonic drops the lamp into the Foundry where he fought the Ifrit, either destroying it or keeping anybody from ever finding it.
- In one cutscene of Sonic and the Secret Rings, when Erazor Djin was summoning Ifrit by using a spell or some sayings, he said the word "Jahannam" and in the Islamic Holy Quran "Jahannam" means "hell".
- Erazor's name is pun of eraser, since he's erasing the Arabian Nights, and razor, as he attacks with a razor based weapon (this is confirmed in the developer's notes in the 'special book' section of the game).
- Erazor and Shahra might have had good friends or even lovers, but it was never exactly stated in the game, though there were hints throughout the story.
Captain whiskers EditCaptain Whisker is a villainous robot pirate who appeared in Sonic Rush Adventure, in which he initially seems to be the main antagonist. He was created by Dr.Eggman and Eggman Nega, whom he greatly resembles, and resides in Blaze the Cat's home dimension.
Whisker and his band of pirates (Johnny, Mini, and Mum) are out to cause havoc on the seas, and intend to use an ancient artifact called the Jeweled Scepter to awaken an unnamed entity, and use its power to conquer. However, despite their claims, the pirates are not very intimidating, and are generally clownish and bumbling (possibly a reference to the comical villains from Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog); he also always forgets about Sonic and others. Despite this, Whisker is an incredible force in battle: he can breathe fire, manifest saws and use shockwave-inducing ground pounds. He takes a special dislike of any characters who have pulled on his 'whiskers', at least when either Mini or Mum remind him. Captain Whisker was apparently destroyed during the Ghost Titan fight.
He was voiced by Lonnie Hirsch.
Nocturne EditFour thousand years before Sonic's time, the Nocturnus Clan fought a protracted war against their fellow echidnas, the Knuckles Clan, for supremacy in the ancient world. More technologically-orientated than Knuckles' ancestors, the Nocturnus prosecuted this conflict with professional armies and prototype Gizoids - ancient automata with a penchant for mimicry, of which Sonic Battle's Emerl was the most advanced to be created.
The war only ended when the Knuckles Clan was laid waste, not by the Nocturnus, but by Perfect Chaos after Chief Pachacamac assaulted the Master Emerald shrine - events recounted during Tikal's flashbacks in Sonic Adventure. With their rivals wiped from the face of the earth, the Nocturnus Clan "nearly colonised the whole world" (as attested by Shade in Chapter 6). However, their ascendancy was abruptly curtailed by the mysterious Argus Event, which saw the Nocturnus civilization (along with their capital city, the Nocturne) uprooted and imprisoned in the Twilight Cage.
When faced with the multitude of cosmic horrors cohabiting the prison dimension, the Nocturnus Clan was forced to change rapidly, from a clockwork-and-waterwheels tribal system to a sinister technophilic imperium. Through strategic alliances (or failing that, direct subjugation), Imperator Ix was able to dominate the other races of the Twilight Cage, and hatched a plan to return to Sonic's world with the power of the Master Emerald, leading to the events of Sonic Chronicles.
A few years after arriving in the Twilight Cage (according to Nestor the Wise), they finally succeeded in sending a few warriors (led by Procurator Shade) back to Sonic's world by means of phase-shifting technology, only to find that several thousand years had passed there while they had been gone. They successfully stole the Chaos Emeralds from Knuckles the Echidna (last descendent of their ancient enemies, the Knuckles Clan) and set up a temporary base in the Metropolis Zone (Doctor Eggman's former base, then deserted). They used the Chaos Emeralds to bring Angel Island to them, so that they could steal the Master Emerald. When Sonic, Knuckles, and their allies travelled to the Angel Island to stop them, Shade discovered that Imperator Ix intended not merely to return their people to their original world, but actually subjugate the world under Nocturnus rule. Learning this, she switched allegiance and joined Sonic's team. Together, they journeyed into the Twilight Cage, uniting Ix's vassal states (the Kron, the Zoah, the N'rrgal, and the Voxai - all of whom resented Ix's rule) and launching an attack on the Nocturne, they stole back the Master Emerald and destroyed the remains of the Nocturnus Tribe. Shade managed to escape the Twilight Cage back to Sonic's world, but what happened to the other members of the tribe is unknown.
The troops of the Nocturnus army are Sonic's principal enemies during the second part of Sonic Chronicles. Clad in matte black armour and glowing sigils, their leech-blade attacks can sap friendly characters' health to replenish their own.
Kron EditThe Kron are a race of rock-like aliens first encountered by Sonic and friends during Chapter 7 of Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, when the Cyclone crash-lands on the KronColony.
The eldest of the extant species imprisoned by Argus within the Twilight Cage, the Kron are a powerful and stubborn people, known mostly for their mining and metallurgical talents. They require little sustenance or luxury to survive, and are extremly long-lived; their leader, Foreman Krag, remembers being torn from their homeworld by Argus thousands of years ago. The Kron talk in an odd, Yoda-esque dialect, although they maintain that the grammar malfunction is an error on the part of the listener rather than the speaker.
Subdued long ago by Imperator Ix, the Kron were induced to build weapons and ships for the Nocturnus Clan, although when the player arrives they are in the midst of a rebellion. Initially mistaking Sonic and his companions for Nocturnus agents, the rock-people attack, and prove highly resistant to conventional damage. The heroes eventually agree to aid the Kron in their uprising, and liberate the main Kron factory from Nocturnus occupation.
In Chapter 10, the Kron outfit the Cyclone with energy-deflecting alloys that enable the heroes to break through the Nocturne's forcefield defences.
(This is notably the only group (aside from the Nocturnus) to not be part of either Sector Charyb nor Sector Scylla.
N'rrgal EditThe N'rrgal are a race of gelatinous, slug-like aliens first encountered by Sonic and friends during Chapter 8 of Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, when the Cyclone lands onthe N'rrgal Colony in Sector Scylla of the Twilight Cage.
Translucent green and semi-liquid, the uncountably numerous N'rrgal inhabit an exceptionally slimy world. Visitors to their colony rarely see anything other than the simple and silent N'rrgal workers - until they start to cause trouble. Individual N'rrgal drones can aggolmerate together in order to produce fearsome warrior opponents. Enough of them in one place allows them to form the N'rrgal Queen, a kind of controlling hive mind that posesses the knowledge of its constituent drones.
The N'rrgal reproduce by mitosis, simply splitting in two to form a pair of new worker drones. Their ability to absorb energy is the N'rrgal's main defense against enemies, as it gives them a powerful regenerative capacity which makes them one of the more infuriating enemies in Sonic Chronicles.
The N'rrgal are sworn enemies of the Zoah, and have warred against them for thousands of years. In fact, their amniosity towards each other was so great that they immediately accused the Zoah of spoiling their spawning pools (an act that was later revealed to have been done by a SWATbot that somehow ended up on their planet) In Chapter 10, the N'rrgal leech energy from the Nocturne's forcefield defences, enabling Tails to fly the Cyclone inside.
The Voxai are an alien species seen in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. Like the Nocturnus echidnas, the Voxai are trapped within the Twilight Cage; all that's known about the length of their imprisonment is that they arrived after the Kron and before the Nocturnus.
The Voxai resemble, in Rouge's words, "manta... jellyfish... thing[s]." Two sets of flipper-like wings extend from a translucent central body mass, with a tapering triangular tail bringing up the rear. Although they lack faces, individual Voxai can be distinguished by the patterning on their front sections. Regular Voxai citizens generally display reddish colouration, from light pink to crimson to deep purple, although the Overmind Voxai display more vaired colours (and are considerably larger).
The Sonic Chronicles Codex tells us:
- "The Voxai are a race of strange, psychic beings native to the Kron Colony(?). As a race, they are quiet and hardworking, but their psychic powers make even the Nocturnus Clan fear to tread on their land.
- The Voxai are all connected, in a way, by a psychic signal that originates from the Voxai Overmind, three very powerful Voxai who act as one in directing the daily operations of individual Voxai. Most of the time, the Overmind simply suggests to the citizens what they should be doing, offering gentle encouragement to the individual. Should the Overmind flex their power, though, not even the Nocturnus are immune to their mind-controlling abilities. Because of this, crime on the Voxai Colony is nonexistant, and will be as long as the Overmind remains in control."
The Voxai seem to be a reasonably insular race, lacking the militaristic ambitions of the Nocturnus or the Zoah. They refer to visitors (and dissidents) as outerminds, distinguishing them from the innerminds who are connected to the Overmind's psychic signal.
The Voxai are also the only race in the Cage to occupy two planetoids; both in Sector Charybdis. Sonic first visits Colony Beta, a rocky worldlet of grey stone and glowing pink/blue scenery, filled with flask-shaped Voxai homes. This is linked to the Colony Alpha by a teleport gate. Alpha serves as the lair of the Overmind.
Zoah EditThe Zoah is a race of aliens that were at the height of their power when they, along with the Kron, N'rrgal and the Voxai, were transported to the Twilight Cage by a mysterious force. Thespecies is known for its love of warfare and desire to rule all others. They are now trying to conquer their most hated enemies, the N'rrgal, who still resist them.
The Zoah were one of the five races in the Twilight Cage and were forced to join the Nocturnus when their leader Pir'Oth Ix challenged and won a fight with General Raxos, the leader of the military. To ensure that the Zoah didn't rebel against him, Ix gave them one of the stolen Chaos Emeralds to help them in their fight against the N'rrgal, who Ix also gave an emerald to so that they would both be occupied. When Sonic the Hedgehog and his friends were captured by the N'rrgal Queen, she blackmailed them into going to the Zoah Colony so that Sonic would steal their emerald, which actually proved to be both sides secret weapon. Sonic and the others were able to get past the army and challenge Raxos or attempt to steal the emerald (depending on what the player decided to do.) Regardless, they are captured and Raxos decides to let Commander Syrax fight them, so Raxos can determine whether they are worthy of fighting him. Sonic wins against both Syrax and one-on-one against Raxos. Raxos then reveals that he was testing Sonic to determine whether they had a chance in defeating Ix. It is revealed that, like the other four races in the Twilight Cage, they secretly despised Ix and the Nocturnus.
Shortly after, when Sonic and the others freed the Voxai, Tails and the chief of the Kron Foreman Krag decided to have a meeting of all four races to decide what the best course of action would be. Raxos agreed to have a meeting with Krag and the other leaders, and despite a small argument with the N'rrgal queen, they were able to figure out a plan to get past Ix's shield and to enable the heroes to challenge Ix.
