Ever since stepping into the battle against iniquity, Sonic has been the champion of peace and is renowned globally for saving the world countless times. During his many adventures, Sonic has traveled from the ends of the Earth to the far reaches of space and time, facing numerous trials that have tested him to the fullest, earning him many titles, allies, and the scorns of several foes. Well-known for his legendary cocky attitude, easy-going demeanor, and somewhat short temper, yet strong sense of justice, compassion, and love for freedom and adventure, Sonic uses his abilities to protect the innocent from his world and beyond from the forces of evil, especially his arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman, and his empire.
You know, what can I say... I die hard!
Sonic is confident, has an attitude, and is free-spirited--refusing to be tied down by anyone or anything. He follows his own beliefs and ideals, even if it may land him in hot water, or have him going against the consensus. And while he appreciates and considers the advice given by his friends and allies, ultimately, it's his golden heart that has the last say on his actions. Sonic loves his friends and would do anything to keep them safe, all while respecting their strengths and allowing them to take the reigns where they can--he knows they've got what it takes to stick it out even through the toughest of times, and he couldn't ask for any better buddies. He enjoys teasing them from time to time too, especially ones of the hot-headed variety.
Sonic is willing to give his enemies a chance to turn over a new leaf, understanding that everyone can change for the better. Examples of this are Chaos, Metal Sonic, Shadow, and Knuckles, just to name a few.
Sticking around in one area for too long, or staying within an enclosed space, makes Sonic start to feel antsy. He likes open spaces where he's free to run around all he wants.
Sonic is a blue hedgehog with a tan muzzle, belly, and arms. His eyes are green, said to reflect the pastures that he often runs in. On his hands, he wears white gloves that he folds at the cuffs. On his feet, he wears white socks and red sneakers that have white straps stretching horizontally along the top and golden buckles placed on the outer sides. The soles of his shoes are light grey/white and the grips on the underside are aligned in a stripe pattern.
His supersonic speed is his most used and well-known trait. This ability allows him to surpass the speed of light, which even Sonic states is "small-time". He uses his speed to travel from place to place in a matter of seconds and thwart Eggman's plans. It's clear that over time Sonic has gotten faster, as evidenced in his second fight with Perfect Chaos.
Sonic's strength isn't what you'd expect for his nimble body type. Thanks to this trait, Sonic has been able to go toe to toe with giant beasts and robots and come out as the victor. His strength allows him to tear through large, thick boulders and crush metal with ease. Simply by running into them, he can send vehicles sky-high.
Enhanced Acrobatic Abilities and Reflexes
Sonic's body is incredibly limber, allowing him to make inhuman movements with precision. When he moves it almost looks as if he's made of rubber with how bouncy and stretchy he appears. This flexibility has allowed him to avoid and maneuver around all kinds of attacks and obstacles. His enhanced reflexes go hand-in-hand with his acrobatics, allowing him to react almost immediately to any oncoming harm.
The ancient light was gifted to Sonic by Tikal, a deceased member of the Echidna Tribe. It manifests as blue electricity that coils around his body, pushing his abilities in base form to greater heights. Whether the ancient light consists of Chaos Energy or is a latent ability of Sonic's is unknown.
Sonic has some level of aerokinesis and a deep connection to the wind. He can freely shape and manipulate air to create and fire off both blasts and razor-sharp blades of wind, as well as summon small but powerful tornadoes capable of ripping through metal. It's also said that the wind is what guides Sonic to where he needs to be, though none can be certain. But the next time you feel the air shift... he may just be nearby.
By using the Chaos Emeralds, Sonic has access to a variety of different Chaos Powers. The most notable ones (Chaos Control) allow him to warp both time and space, allowing him to stop the flow of time while leaving himself unharmed or allowing him to teleport to another location entirely.
Caliburn is a legendary, sacred sword that Sonic pulled from a stone in Misty Lake. It is also a sentient sword, capable of speech and movement on its own. Caliburn acts like a proper and polite gentleman, which often clashes with Sonic's easygoing attitude. The two tend to go off on one another, calling each other names like "Over-sized Letter Opener" or "Knave The Hedgehog". He also acted as Sonic's mentor, teaching him skills that would help in his fights with the Knights of the Round Table.
Extreme Gear are capable of allowing their rider to fly, or at least hover, at high speeds. Depending on the model, they are powered by Air, Gravity Points, or Ring Energy. These types of fuel are used for using speed boosts to accelerate the rider to high speeds, in a technique known as Kick Dash. In addition, Extreme Gear powered by Air can drop miniature Tornadoes to trip up rivals.
Certain models of Extreme Gear each come with a variety of unique abilities, such as the ability to grind on rails, glide through the air, smash barricades and obstacles in the rider's path, or improve their own attributes. Some come with components of such abilities called Gear Parts, with which the user can alter the capabilities of their Gear. Most Extreme Gear even have their own abilities equipped in them, such as the Gambler's ability to manipulate the number of Rings the rider earns in a race based on the position they come in.
When transformed into Super Sonic, Sonic's blue fur turns into a gold color and his tan skin gains a slightly golden hue. Additionally, his green eyes become ruby red and his quills turn upward. His top quill varies in position though, either having its angle slightly raised or being upturned like his other quills. He also possesses a golden aura that can be anything from smooth to flame-like in shape and displays either faint sparkles or electrical sparks.
Super Sonic is easily one of the most powerful beings in the series, having defeated titanic robots, fearsome monsters, forces of nature, other Super State users, and even all-powerful deities. Due to having the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds, Super Sonic accordingly commands ultimate power and has access to unlimited energy.
As Super Sonic, Sonic's abilities far surpass his normal ones. His strength has been increased to incredible, incalculable levels, allowing him to take on many opponents of varying sizes and strengths. His speed is enhanced too, along with his reflexes and durability. Like the traditional Super State, Sonic has gained new abilities, such as flight, time manipulation, and the power to warp reality.
What you see is what you get! Just a guy that loves adventure!
Tails Miles Prower, better known as Tails, is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is an anthropomorphic fox cub born with two distinct twin tails, hence his nickname. Due to his abnormality, Tails was a victim of bullying during his youth. One day, however, he met Sonic the Hedgehog and was inspired to become as cool as him after seeing him run like the wind. Tails soon after began following Sonic on his adventures and has since become his best friend and sidekick. He is able to use his twin tails to fly by rotating them like helicopter rotors and is a mechanic genius and aerial pilot.
A bright, energetic, and curious fox, Tails was initially timid and lacked courage. After meeting Sonic, however, he has become more confident, eventually growing into a more outgoing, brave, independent individual and a hero in his own right. Since encountering Sonic, Tails has looked up to him and stood by his side in order to help him whenever he can, having traveled around the world and far beyond alongside him, usually to stop the ambitions of the evil Dr. Eggman. Even after all of these adventures, Tails continues to stimulate the maternal instinct of many female fans from all around the world thanks to his charm that contrasts Sonic's.
Knuckles Knuckles the Echidna is one of the main characters from the Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is an anthropomorphic echidna and the current guardian of the Master Emerald, a powerful ancient relic that is his solemn duty to protect from anyone seeking to abuse it. He is also the sole surviving descendant of the echidna race from the Knuckles Clan. His dominant traits are his super strength and the two spike-like knuckles on each of his gloves, from which his name is derived, which he can use to dig with and climb walls. He can also trap the wind under his dreadlocks to glide through the air.
A loner by nature, Knuckles is independent, headstrong, and serious, yet gullible and short-tempered to a fault. He is entirely devoted to his duty, spending most of his time on Angel Island protecting the Master Emerald, and rarely cares for anything that is of no importance. When his friends and others are in need of his help, however, Knuckles can always be relied on being willing to leave his post and prove himself a faithful and good-hearted hero. He is also one of Sonic the Hedgehog's oldest friends and rivals.
Though usually depicted as the guardian of the Master Emerald, he was originally described as the guardian of Angel Island's seven Chaos Emeralds.
Amy Amy Rose, also known as Rosy the Rascal, is a fictional character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. She is an anthropomorphic hedgehog with a major crush on Sonic the Hedgehog. Since meeting Sonic on Little Planet, Amy has become his self-proclaimed girlfriend and has attempted to win his heart by any means during their adventures. She wields the Piko Piko Hammer, which she uses with skills second to none and never leaves home without.
Amy is a cheerful, though slightly erratic girl, with a positive attitude and boundless energy. However, she has a scary temper and her infatuation with Sonic makes her short-sighted and a bit obsessive about him, having followed him everywhere since meeting him. Nevertheless, she has a pure heart and will not let anything stop her.
