CONCEPT: "MOBIUS" - REAL CHARACTER PROFILE ~ The Main Crew

CHARACTER INFORMATION

Name: Sonic (King Sonic/Arthur if Camelot citizens insist; he'd rather they didn't)
(On a few sites, Sonic is given the name "Ogilvie Maurice." In the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comics, Ogilvie Maurice was Sonic's true first and last name for some time, though that seems to have ceased. At any rate, the name Ogilvie Maurice is by no means canon concerning the video game storyline — his name is just Sonic in the games.)

Nicknames: SegaSonic, The Blue Blur, The Fastest Thing Alive, Blue Wind (by Soleannanian citizens), Mr. Monster Guy (Chip reserved that for the Werehog), Big Blue, Knave the Hedgehog (Caliburn stuck him with this "title" for a while)
(Although known primarily as The Fastest Thing Alive in the SatAM TV series, watch the Sonic Riders intro - Jet calls Sonic 'The Fastest Thing Alive.')

Race: Hedgehog
(Speculation: If you choose to get technical, Sonic is most likely an African Pygmy Hedgehog, since that is the most common, well-known species of hedgehog, not to mention is the species of hedgehog shown in the US Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle commercials.)

Gender: Male

Age: 15

Date of Birth: June 23
(Sonic's DOB is generally confirmed as June 23rd, since that was the release of his first video game. However, it is not canon to the video game storyline, as his true DOB is unknown. If you find it necessary to add his DOB nonetheless, June 23rd would be the most ideal choice.)

Birthplace: ~ Christmas Island (it's not indisputably confirmed that this is Sonic's birthplace, but is most likely canonical since this did after all come from a very old, videogame-based storyline arc — if this is not true, good speculation would tell you that his birthplace is most likely South Island)
(Speculation: Sonic's birthplace is commonly confirmed as South Island. As convincing as that may be, it's probably false. The original game storyline prior to Sonic the Hedgehog 1's release says Sonic's birthplace is the small Christmas Island, but Sonic usually hung out at South Island, which is what could have possibly sparked that misinterpretation. His birthplace is also commonly referred to as Mobotropolis. This is canonical if they are making profiles for the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comic's portrayal of Sonic. But in the games, there is no Mobotropolis.)

Height: 100 centimeters (3 feet and 3 inches or exactly 3.28 feet)
(125 centimeters/4 feet 1 inches in Werehog form)

Weight: 35 kilograms (77.2 pounds)
(60 kilograms/132.2 pounds in Werehog form)

Ability Type: Speed (Possibly Power in Werehog form)

Alignment: Hero

Physical Techniques:

(1). Spin Attack
Description: While in locomotion, Sonic can curl down and take on a fetal position, rolling along the ground at a very high speed and rate of torque, using his natural speed and the sharpness of his quills to his advantage. This is meant primarily for breaking through barriers, or destroying enemies. If necessary, he can use this technique to drift through tight turns, adding to his Boost stamina.
In-game debut: Sonic the Hedgehog, Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, 1991

(2). Spin Jump
Description: Also referred to as the "spinball jump," Sonic is able to leap into the air and curl into a spinning, tightly compacted ball of sharpness and destruction which can destroy enemies and break barriers.
In-game debut: Sonic the Hedgehog, Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, 1991

(3). Spin Dash
Description: Originally named the "Super Spin Dash," Sonic is able to curl down and begin revving up, taking on a diagonally pivoted, ovular shape. Once unleashed, Sonic blasts forward in an acceleration roll of high speeds with limited airborne capability, meant to break barriers or mow down enemies.
In-game debut: Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, 1992

(4). Insta-Shield
Description: While in spinball form in midair, Sonic can momentarily encompass his spherical physique with a shield of bluish-white energy (Presumed to be static electricity), protecting him from harm for a split second and allowing him to strike through enemy weaknesses.
In-game debut: Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, 1994

(5). Super Peel Out
Description: An acceleration technique where, while standing in place, Sonic can rev his legs up at a blinding speed to the point where the blending colors of his shoes and legs causes a figure 8 to flicker about under him, and once unleashed, Sonic speeds forward at supersonic speeds, sometimes accompanied by a split second of invincibility.
In-game debut: Sonic the Hedgehog CD, Sega Mega CD, 1993

(6). Jump Dash/Homing Attack
Description: While airborne in spinball form, Sonic can burst forward in a sudden jolt of speed in a linear path enveloped in a blue aura, and when an enemy or object is near, the jump can be used to home right into the nearby enemy or object with extreme impact power.
In-game debut: Sonic Adventure, Sega Dreamcast, 1999 (was also used in Sonic 3D Blast: Flickies' Island as the “Blast Attack”; however, it could only be used if a certain powerup is retrieved)

(7). Light Dash
Description: When a trail or pattern of rings is in close proximity, Sonic is able to zoom across the trajectory of the ring path at light speed, defying gravity and collecting all of them in a flash.
In-game debut: Sonic Adventure, Sega Dreamcast, 1999

(8). Light Attack
Description: After gaining enough power, Sonic dashes into a powerful and fast attack on all enemies in the vicinity. Its accuracy is questionable, however, and Sonic has to be careful not to end up somewhere he shouldn't when coming out of the attack.
In-game debut: Sonic Adventure, Sega Dreamcast, 1999

(9). Sonic Wind
Description: When enough rings are obtained, Sonic can conjure up a powerful whirlwind of swirling blue blades of energy (presumably wind or Ki), harming any opponents caught in it.
Appearance: Sonic Adventure 2, Sega Dreamcast, 2001

(10). Chaos Control
Description: With the use of a single Chaos Emerald, Sonic is able to warp time and space and teleport himself to a desired destination, freeze time, speed it up, or slow it down. When using it with another user, a portal can be created to travel through time. Whilst in super form, Chaos Control is more potent, to the point that he can teleport massively sized objects, assuming he has help, of course.
In-game debut: Sonic Adventure 2, Sega Dreamcast, 2001

(11). Triangle Jump
Description: Sonic basically Jump Dashes between walls but he can only remain rooted on a wall for a short period of time when still.
In-game debut: Sonic Heroes, Nintendo GameCube, Sony PlayStation 2/Microsoft Xbox, 2003

(12). Blue Tornado
Description: When in mid-air, Sonic can assume spinball form and repeatedly follow the trajectory of a perfect circle, stirring up a substantially powerful vortex of blue colored winds, sending anything caught in it flying up into the air and ultimately helpless.
In-game debut: Sonic Heroes, Nintendo GameCube, Sony PlayStation 2/Microsoft Xbox, 2003

(13). Super Boost
Description: Quite possibly Sonic's greatest acceleration move: at will, Sonic is able to burst forward in a blaze of blue energy and instantly achieve supersonic speeds upon lifting his feet off the ground without virtually any acceleration delay. However, it greatly depletes his tension and stamina and he will need to collect rings, perform stylish tricks or successfully drift to use it again. How he's able to do this while grinding or riding vehicles is a mystery, though.
In-game debut: Sonic Rush, Nintendo DS, 2005

(14). Bounce Attack/Bound Jump
Description: Sonic jumps and slams down on the enemy, gaining a bit more altitude with each bounce.
In-game debut: Sonic Advance 2, Nintendo Game Boy Advance, 2003 (was also used in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic Adventure 2; however, it was not named as such, and can only be used if a certain powerup is retrieved)

(15). Mach Speed

Only used in: Sonic the Hedgehog (aka Sonic Next), Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3, 2006

(19). Gun Drive
Description: By utilizing the sky blue gem in the shoes given to him by Mr. Roberto, Sonic can throw the sky blue gem then immediately leap towards the thrown gem's location with incredible speed and accuracy.
Only used in: Sonic the Hedgehog (aka Sonic Next), Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3, 2006

(20). Scale
Description: By utilizing the purple gem in the shoes given to him by Mr. Roberto of Soleanna, Sonic can minimize his body size from 100cm to only a couple of inches tall. He can perform infinite jumps and has greater running speed.
Only used in: Sonic the Hedgehog (aka Sonic Next), Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3, 2006

(21). Thunder Guard
Description: By utilizing the yellow gem in the shoes given to him by Mr. Roberto of Soleanna, Sonic can project an electrified shield around himself that protects him from damage once and attracts nearby rings.
Only used in: Sonic the Hedgehog (aka Sonic Next), Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3, 2006

(22). Sonic Boom
Description: Sonic cuts loose at his true, would famous speed for a few moments, busting through the sound barrier and anyone else who gets in his way.
Appearance: Sonic Rivals, Sony PlayStation Portable, 2006

(23). Speed Break
Description: Similar to his Super Boost, Sonic can dash forward at tremendous speeds enveloped in flames, surpassing large distances and damaging enemies in his way. Shahra's power is needed for this to work.
Only used in: Sonic and the Secret Rings, Nintendo Wii, 2007

(24). Time Break
Description: Similar to Chaos Control, Sonic can slow time to an extremely slow crawl, enabling easy passage of obstacles. Sonic needs either Shahra's power or a certain powerup to enable this feat.
Appearance: Sonic and the Secret Rings, Nintendo Wii, 2007

(25). Axe Kick
Description: Sonic Spin Dashes towards an opponent, slamming into them before landing on top of the foe with, as indicated, a powerful axe kick.

Description: Sonic can quickly slide to drift through tight turns. If necessary, he can roll while doing this, which adds to his Boost stamina.
In-game debut: Sonic Unleashed, Microsoft Xbox 360/Sony PlayStation 3/Nintendo Wii/Sony PlayStation 2, 2008

(30). Soul Surge
Description: When wielding the legendary sword Caliburn, Sonic can focus his will into the blade and deliver a quick strike upon any foe in his sights, provided he has enough energy to do so. When all enemies have been vanquished, Sonic simply dashes forth in a blaze of speed.
Only used in: Sonic and the Black Knight, Nintendo Wii, 2009

Abilities and Aptitude:

(1). Sonic the Hedgehog really IS the fastest thing alive! Sonic can run at supersonic speeds in high excess of 760 miles an hour in normal conditions. This amazing feat gives him the ability to break the sound barrier with ease and his legs are configured in such a way that he can also run backwards. But Sonic's slow walking movements are sometimes awkward and clumsy-looking, perhaps due to his almost constant speeding-around.

(2). His extraordinary speed statistic promotes exceptional and elegant acrobatic and gymnastic skills, agility, and adroitness. He also has fantastic reflexes as well, possibly as a result of his outstanding acrobatic/gymnastic abilities. By spreading his body and long quills to generate air resistance, Sonic can even slow his rate of descent when falling through the air from a great height.

(3). Sonic's resilience in his legs and heart is off the map. He can run for days and days at top speed before showing hints of fatigue and even then, he recovers rather fast. He also has astounding resilience to severe blows (especially surprising given his diminutive stature) and it takes a tremendous amount of damage infliction for him to go down for the count. This is especially true once he's set his mind on a goal; only the most life threatening injuries will stop him from pressing onward. Sonic also seems to have an outstanding immune system as well, capable of recovering from illness so quickly that it makes one wonder how he can become sick in the first place.

Transformations/Alternate forms:

(1). Has the ability to use the power of the Chaos Emeralds and transform into Super Sonic, where Sonic's fur turns to a glossy golden yellow, his eyes turn ruby red, at least four of his six cranial quills stand up on end, and he is many times as fast and powerful, along with the ability to fly. He can also make other characters turn into their super forms (if they have one) by imbuing them with the Emeralds' powers. Super Sonic is reliant on rings to sustain this form and, in some cases, even activate it. Maintaining this form even with rings consumes extreme amounts of energy and Sonic can only sustain it for relatively short periods of time. Lastly, Sonic can use this form when riding Extreme Gear, though it's surprisingly difficult to do so, as it seems to have more drawbacks than benefits.

(2). Has the ability to utilize the powers of three of the seven World Rings (The red ring of rage, the purple ring of sadness and the green ring of hatred) and possibly a degree of Shahra's influence (he is quite possibly possessed by Shahra when in this form) to transform into Darkspine Sonic, where Sonic's fur turns to a purplish indigo color, his pupils, irises, shoes, gloves and mouth disappear (How he talks is a mystery), his muzzle, inner ears and stomach skin become a grayish white color, he gains 4 large glowing yellow rings on his wrists and ankles and all six of his cranial spines point completely downwards (Similar to Amy's or Knuckles' spines) but are known to be blown backwards by wind. Darkspine Sonic also gains white banded fur markings on each wrist, around his bare feet and two parallel white lines from the end of his top spine and down his forehead, stopping where they meet the eyes. Two parallel white lines also appear on the top of his lower middle cranial spine. Darkspine Sonic has a fiery orange aura and can turn his enemies' powers against them as well as follow up with extraordinarily powerful kicks, chops, slaps and punches. He also has the ability to charge his soul gauge merely by spinning in place. It increases at an extremely slow rate by itself otherwise.

(4). When under the influence of Dark Gaia's power, Sonic transforms into a Werehog at night. In this form, Sonic is a bit taller, a bit heavier and a LOT hairier. His fur gets darker and his skin turns pale blue. While his legendary speed is pretty much gone, it is replaced by massive strength and power. His powerful arms can also stretch amazingly, allowing Sonic to scale great heights and lengths.

(3). When channeling the full force of his indomitable will into the sacred sword Caliburn, combined with the other three sacred swords, the longsword Arondight, the axes Galatin, and the rapier Laevatein, the sword will change into his true form, Excalibur, changing Sonic himself into Excalibur-Sonic. Sonic gains a full body set of golden armor and a red cape on his waist. With this armor, Sonic gains incredible power over Excalibur and can cut through anything, enhancing his Soul Surge attacks. Unfortunately, he is not invincible in this form; while his ring supply does not drain over time, it can still be beaten out of him.

(4). Upon absorbing a Cyan Wisp, Sonic can transform into a Cyan-colored form, enabling the use of Cyan Laser. This can be used to ricochet off of walls and enemies (Destroying them) and through special prisms and optical cables at immense speed.

(5). Upon absorbing a Yellow Wisp, Sonic can transform into a yellow-colored form enabling the use of Yellow Drill. This can be used to burrow through soft ground and move easily and quickly through water. The form can power through harsh water currents and move easily through pipes.

(6). Upon absorbing a Blue Wisp, Sonic can transform into a blue-colored form enabling the use of Blue Cube. As long as Color Power remains in the gauge he can shift between normal form and Blue Cube form. Whilst in cubic form, Sonic can destroy nearby enemies and objects and change blue blocks into blue rings and vice-versa opening up new paths. The blocks and rings revert to their original forms once his Color Power runs out.

(7). Upon absorbing an Orange Wisp, Sonic can transform into an orange-colored form enabling the use of Orange Rocket. The form can gain massive vertical distance in a straight vertical trajectory and destroy nearly anything above him. Once he reverts to normal form, he can float safely back down to terra-firma.

(8). Upon absorbing a Pink Wisp, Sonic can transform into a Pink-colored form enabling the use of Pink Spikes. He has perfect traction on any wall no matter what material or angle, even parallel to the ground! He is also immune to spike traps and can accelerate at immense speeds as long as Color Power is in the gauge.

(9). Upon absorbing a Purple (Nega) Wisp Sonic can transform into a savage, growling Purple-Colored form enabling the use of Purple Frenzy. This violent and unrestrained form can devour pretty much anything and gradually grow in size after a certain amount of objects have been eaten, increasing the destruction he can potentially reap as long as Color Power is in the gauge.

(10). Upon absorbing a Red Wisp Sonic can transform into a fiery red-colored form enabling the use of Red Burst. He can generate explosions by building energy within himself, destroying enemies in a large area and leaping great vertical and/or horizontal distance. He can also activate certain contraptions. The form instantly reverts in water or when Color Power is completely drained from the gauge

(11). Upon absorbing a Violet Wisp Sonic can transform into a ghostly indigo-colored form enabling the use of Violet Void. He can suck up objects, rings and enemies into his void and become correspondingly huger upon consuming certain amounts of objects. The larger he gets, the larger and easier the objects he can consume. This form can easily use fans to shift his ghostly bulk can float albeit slowly through the air.

(12). Upon absorbing a Green Wisp, Sonic can transform into a green-colored form enabling the use of Green Hover. He can float, ascent and descent through the air and dash along lines of rings as long as Color Power remains in the gauge.

(Hyper Sonic, while incredibly interesting, has yet to be fully confirmed as canon.)

Hobbies and Talents:
(1). Has a secret hobby as a Disc Jockey.
(2). Talented vocalist.
(3). Sonic is quite a good break-dancer/Capoeira practitioner, enough to incorporate the style into his close-combat techniques.
(4). Excellent skills in piloting, driving and water bike surfing.
(5). Very experienced in a variation of sports such as boarding and surfing (he's skilled enough to keep from bailing) and other recreational activities like grinding.
(6). Highly adept with all types of Extreme Gear. For that matter, he's also a quick learner, considering how fast he caught on.
(7). Has a great sense of acuity and calmness in the face of dangerous and/or pressing situations.
(8). Though he can't compare to Knuckles or even Shadow, Sonic is surprisingly physically strong in his arms/upper body.
(9). It seems Sonic's quite the swordsman, applying his own high-speed flair with devastatingly unorthodox results.
(10). Sonic appears to be an excellent gunner, capable of using the Tornado's on-board weaponry with immense accuracy.
(11). Can use the Wisps' Hyper Go-On energy in order to shape shift into various forms that have their own unique abilities and aspects.

Weaknesses:

(1). Highly impatient. Sonic has an awful habit of walking (or in his case, running) blindly into dangerous situations without thinking them through (even more so when upset, thanks to his short temper), which has put him in great danger more than once. Usually though, his quick thinking and speed gets him out of trouble.

(2). Cannot swim, unless synchronized. He sinks like a stone in water, probably mainly due to his great body weight for his size and narrow limbs (unlikely considering Knuckles can swim with his similar body proportions) or likely due to the possibility listed below.

(3). Possibly aquaphobic. Sonic might be terribly afraid of water, but there is no absolute solid evidence of this.

(4). Sonic is slowed down considerably as a Werehog and his temper is even worse.

(5). His ego tends to lower his defenses depending on who he’s facing.

Physical Appearance:
   
- Coarse and close-lying blue fur
- Coarse and close-lying blue fur
- Peach skin muzzle and inner ears
- Long and thin blue-furred legs that broaden below the knees. Capable of allowing Sonic to perform some extremely impressive jumps and leaps and powerful kicks
- Peach skin broad hands and blunt, thick fingers with no nails- Peach skin upright-oval marking on tummy/chest
- Very thin and wiry peach skin covered arms. They are much stronger than they initially appear to be.
- Large vibrant eyes with emerald green irises, black pupils and glassy white sclera
- Blue eyelids with a thickish black lash that extends amongst the bottom of the top eyelid.
- 6 elongated, contoured pliable quills coming out of the back of his head that appear to be consisted of many thousands of smaller spines, and two much less pliable, slightly shorter arching quills on his back. The head quills are known to stiffen when Sonic is shocked, afraid, very excited or particularly annoyed
- Two triangular, constantly alert and perked ears that have some degree of movement. They slant slightly backwards when Sonic is running and slant forwards or sideways greatly when Sonic is asleep or unhealthy.
- Long black nose with no apparent nostrils
- Small, slightly arched tail
- Broad blue furred feet with no distinct separate toes

Werehog:

- Coarse and flared out navy blue fur
- Pale blue skin muzzle and fluffy inner ears
- Long and thin blue-furred legs that broaden below the knees
- Pale blue skin broad hands and blunt, thick fingers with sharp claws. The wrists have write markings on the fur
- Pale blue upright-oval marking on tummy/chest
- Very thick and powerful arms capable of stretching
- Large vibrantly intimidating eyes with emerald green irises, black pupils and glassy white sclera
- Blue eyelids with a thickish black lash that extends amongst the bottom of the top eyelid.
- 6 elongated, contoured pliable and furry quills coming out of the back of his head that appear to be and two much less pliable, slightly shorter arching quills on his back. The transformation has reduced their sharpness greatly.
- Two triangularly curved, constantly alert and perked ears that have some degree of movement. They slant slightly backwards when Sonic is running and slant forwards or sideways greatly when Sonic is asleep or unhealthy.
- Long black nose with no apparent nostrils
- Small, slightly arched tail
- Broad blue furred feet with no distinct separate toes

Attire:

- A pair of white gloves with large, sock-like cuffs. They appear to be composed of a thick cotton-like material.
- A pair of red sneakers with a white strap, metallic golden buckles that fasten the strap in place on the outer side of the shoe, and gray, special resin soles with an impossibly high friction tolerance
- White socks (Unconfirmed, the baggy white "cuffs" may be just part of the shoe, but we'll perhaps never know this for certain)
- A spare pair of custom made SOAP Scorchers with reinforced soles for grinding

Extreme Gear and other sports:

- A pair of silver framed glasses with green lenses and a ring on each hand just beneath the cuff of each glove, each made from an unknown grey metal. Curiously, the glasses are never seen over his eyes.
- A pair of red and white boots with yellow accents and grey soles.
- Once wore an Ark of the Cosmos on one of his wrists. This particular Ark was primarily blue in color and enabled Sonic to manipulate gravity as he pleased. From utilizing gravity to make sharp turns, repelling enemies and slowing his rate of descent to even utilizing gravity in order to perform long and fast burst of acceleration whilst levitating.
- If required to participate in aquatic sporting events, Sonic wears one if two lifejackets (orange or blue).

Storybook:

- Once wore a gold ring on the middle finger of one hand. This ring was the contract between Sonic and Shahra the ring genie and he could request a wish of the ring genie simple by rubbing it. It is engraved with symbols that bestow good luck upon its wearer. It was once shattered beyond conventional repair but was recreated with one of Sonic's wishes of Erazor Djinn.

- Once had an arrow of flame embedded in the upper corner of his chest. This flame arrow was inflicted by Erazor Djinn and served as a visual representation of Sonic's life force, its curse ensuring instant death once it burned out. However, it disappeared after Sonic transformed into Darkspine Sonic.

- Once possessed a metal gauntlet with a yellow collar on his right hand. This was necessary for wielding a blade.

Werehog:

- A pair of red sneakers with a metal, spiked strap on the outer side of the shoe, and gray soles with sharp cleats
- White socks (Unconfirmed, the torn up white "cuffs" may be just part of the shoe, but we'll perhaps never know this for certain)

Items & Weapons:

(1). Light Shoes
Description: They look like Sonic's regular kicks, but are clearly special. Sometimes they’re adorned with a special attachment, other times they’re made with ring energy. At first, these shoes were required to perform the Light Speed Dash. Nowadays, Sonic has learned to perform the maneuver with or without it.
Appearance: Sonic Adventure, Sega Dreamcast, 1999

(2). Crystal Ring
Description: A cyan colored bracelet that fits over the cuff of the glove on Sonic's right wrist. It shortened the time needed to gather power for the Light Dash/Light Attack.
Appearance: Sonic Adventure, Sega Dreamcast, 1999

(3). Ancient Light
Description: A very mysterious ball of light with tiny orbs of light orbiting it that is absorbed into Sonic's body when he gains it. At first, this was needed for the Light Speed Attack, but Sonic has learned to perform the maneuver without it.
Appearance: Sonic Adventure, Sega Dreamcast, 1999

(4). Bounce Bracelet
Description: A light grey metal bracelet with a constantly blinking green light. This let Sonic bounce and bound on stuff as if he had the Water Shield from Sonic 3. He doesn't really need it anymore.
Appearance: Sonic Adventure 2, Sega Dreamcast, 2001

(5). Flame Ring
Description: A gold bracelet with a vermillion colored gem embedded into it that glows orange rhythmically. This let Sonic perform the Fire Somersault, enshrouding his somersaulting form in a fiery aura and allowing him to bust open metal containers.
Appearance: Sonic Adventure 2, Sega Dreamcast, 2001

(6). Magic Gloves
Description: A trio of silver, blue and yellow objects that attach to the top of Sonic's Bounce Bracelet. This lets Sonic play Pokémon by trapping a robot in a ball. Then he can kill two bots with one stone by throwing the robot at another. An amusing tactic.
Appearance: Sonic Adventure 2, Sega Dreamcast, 2001

(7). Caliburn
Description: In Arthurian times, this sacred sword was said to be the greatest of all, particularly when in its legendary form, Excalibur. The blade seems to have a mind of its own, and has no problem speaking it, much to Sonic's chagrin as he and Caliburn tend to bicker constantly. Sonic steadily gained enough proficiency to use the sword in 3 styles: Paladin (Attack-based), Cavalier (Speed-based) and Knight (balanced).
Only used in: Sonic and the Black Knight, Nintendo Wii, 2009

(8.) A white Apple iPod Nano. He listens to it every now and again to keep from getting bored.  

Vehicle(s):

(1). The Tornado
Description: A red, vintage-style biplane. How Sonic acquired such a craft is unknown, though it is rarely used by Sonic anymore, since his best friend Tails has assumed self-proclaimed ownership of it. The Tornado is 18.7ft in length (5.7m), has a 12.1ft (3.7m) wingspan, is  6.9ft (2.1m) in height, its primary engine is a 480HP, 12-Cylinder, air-cooled Twin Star and the secondary engine that is installed by Tails is two custom booster engines. The Tornado's maximum speed is 450km per hour if using the primary engine by itself and an astonishing 340 meters per second if both engines are used at the same time. Tails seems to have given it a major upgrade recently (including, but not limited to, a rear gunner on the tail for Sonic to fire from if needed), bringing it on par with the Tornado 2. Sonic can be seen flying it with great proficiency when Tails isn't around to do so.
In-game debut: Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, 1992

(2). The Cyclone
Description: A red sports car, though it is very rarely used since he really doesn't need it. It was only used in the Chaos Grand Prix racing circuit. The Cyclone had good acceleration and a high top speed but its cornering ability is poor.
Appearance: Sonic Drift, Sega Game Gear, 1994

(3). Blue Star II
Description: A blue and yellow Extreme Gear air board with two boosters in the back. Sonic's first Blue Star board was destroyed by Wave before he could finish the last race of the EX World Grand Prix, so Tails built him this one. The Blue Star II has abysmal cornering ability but a high top speed. It was remade later on by Tails simply named the Blue Star again with sleeker curves that attest to the fox's improvements.
Appearance: Sonic Riders, Nintendo GameCube/Sony PlayStation 2/Microsoft Xbox, 2006

(4). Wave Cyclone
Description: A water bike with a primarily blue color scheme that was built by Tails from blue and iron materials and upgraded with various other materials. The Wave Cyclone was presumably left in in the Sol Dimension.
Appearance: Sonic Rush Adventure, Nintendo DS, 2007

Personality Details:

Sonic the Hedgehog is like the wind: unpredictable, always at some other place and never congregating in one location for too long. Sonic is a carefree, easy going, and laidback young hedgehog who likes nothing more than to just venture across the endless boundaries of the world and enjoy his prized freedom. This is probably why he isn't too interested in dating.

With an attitude just as fickle as his urge for adventure, as well as an ego as big as South Island, Sonic is sassy and quick-witted with a passion for just enjoying life, leaving the past behind, and to always move forward without regrets. He's smooth, cool and popular, and tends to let this get to his head from time to time, possessing a somewhat narcissistic tongue. This behavior makes him look like an ass sometimes, whether he realizes it or not. However, he is quite a gentleman and has good manners and an air of politeness. Well...when he feels like it, anyway. He usually just sees such forms of etiquette as a major bore.

This is because he can't stand being restricted by certain standards if he can't help it. Sonic lives and dies by his own rules rather than the standards of those around him or even for the sake of heroism, living his life exactly how he wants to live it, even if it makes him look bad. However, when Sonic gets riled up over injustice, oppression, or the despair and sadness of another (an easy feat, since he hates evil in all forms), his vague sense of heroism kicks into overtime and the results could be devastating since his temper can, at times, be just as bad and as short as his patience. A rarely seen trait otherwise, this is most noticeable when he is up against another nefarious scheme for global conquest from his arch nemesis, Dr. Robotnik.

As a Werehog, Sonic's personality remains unchanged for the most part, but, as one may no doubt assume, his temper is even worse, making him more prone to feral outbursts of rage, promising doom for his foes. The fact that his speed, looks and overall cool factor is hampered by this transformation doesn't help his stress, either. You would think that he would be driven mad by this form, but that is not the case. Sonic's heart and will is simply too damn strong to be affected by something like that.

It is this factor that makes him near impossible to predict. No matter what happens or who looks down on him, he will never give up. He keeps going, keeps pushing on. Whatever it takes to do what he's gotta do.

Overall, Sonic just does whatever the hell he wants, when he wants and however he wants to do it. Screw anyone who has a problem with it.

Historical Biography:

Like his personality suggests, Sonic the Hedgehog is a guy who never focuses on the past. He always moves forward; physically, and mentally. So it doesn't take an IQ of 300 to figure out that Sonic's history is a mystery to everyone. Very little is known, but what is known will be told here at Concept: "Mobius".

Although Sonic was born at Christmas Island, Sonic's favorite place to go was South Island. It was one of the few regions that contained ring portals that gave access to the different dimensions that held very special and omnipotent gems known as the Chaos Emeralds. More than likely, though, he was never concerned with any of that.

Sonic liked nothing more than to just lie back on the beach of South Island and listen to music. Sonic loved rock music the most and was even singer in his own rock band as a vocalist. He loved hanging out with his friends, but he enjoyed just as much to be alone and wander the lands aimlessly, in endless search for adventure.

Sonic would be enjoying himself were it not for the endless amount of wicked plots to take over the world that his arch nemesis, Dr. Robotnik (or as he is more commonly addressed, Dr. Eggman) had up his sleeve. But in the end, Sonic always managed to outsmart Dr. Robotnik, earning celebrity status across the entire world (most of it, anyway), revered as a hero and loved by all. All was well until Eggman came up with his best plan yet upon hearing the stories of the Chaos Emeralds…

Dr. Robotnik vowed to get the Chaos Emeralds and soon built a giant metal fortress, constructing an army of various types of robots to go out and search for the Chaos Emeralds. He knew those emeralds could be used to make devastating nuclear weapons or things of the like. They'd be perfect for taking over the world. But Sonic, ever the hero, stood up against Dr. Robotnik and eventually managed to defeat the robots and Eggman; cornering them in the fortress they came from, and told them never to come back out. Eggman sulked in defeat, but still vowed that he would get the Chaos Emeralds and exact his revenge on Sonic.

Since then, Sonic has always ended up having to save the world or somebody from Dr. Robotnik's clutches. And along the way, Sonic has made many, many friends and nearly as many enemies. But saving the world is a mere distraction, since right after that, Sonic is off to his next adventure! It's the only way to live life without regrets!

Personal Information:

Family: He thinks of Miles "Tails" Prower as his little brother. His parentage is unknown.

Greatest Friend(s): Himself, Amy Rose, Knuckles the Echidna, Cream the Rabbit & Cheese and Blaze the Cat.

Other Friend(s): Big the Cat, Vector the Crocodile, Espio the Chameleon, Charmy Bee, Mighty the Armadillo, Ray the Flying Squirrel, Shadow the Hedgehog, Silver the Hedgehog (when the guy's actually friendly), Shahra the Genie of the Ring, Marine the Raccoon, Shade the Echidna, Chip, Professor Pickle, Merlina the Wizard, the Knights of Camelot's Round Table and the Wisp race of aliens.

Love Interest(s): None, regardless of what Amy Rose tells herself.

Rival(s): Shadow the Hedgehog, Knuckles the Echidna (however, they're usually on good terms), Metal Sonic and Jet the Hawk (as far as Extreme Gear is concerned).

Foe(s): Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik, Fang the Sniper, Metal Sonic and Eggman Nega.

Likes: His freedom and independence, the beauty of nature, but most of all: running or anything to do with speed. For a clue on Sonic's environmental tastes, he seems to like tropical and highly industrialized cities and the ocean (as long as he isn't in it) -- anything with movement, basically. He also enjoys any fair opportunity to playfully tease his friends or make himself look good.

Main Dislikes: The word 'slow,' oppression, injustice, sadness (especially if it's one-sided), boring theme parks, seeing others cry, anything that involves water (a bath or shower is as far as he'll go when not chasing down Eggman or participating in sports), and being subjected to immobility or being cooped up somewhere for prolonged periods. DON'T put him on a cruise ship or anything like that, or maniacal and stir-crazy behavior may begin to manifest itself in him since Sonic can't stand prolonged separation from large and open places to run.

Other Dislikes: He hates losing, or waiting on anyone or anything. Amy's Piko Piko hammer and being glomped are also annoyances. Surprisingly, he isn't very fond of racing, either. As far as he's concerned, he's the fastest, so why bother? (That changes if Eggman's involved or his reputation is on the line.) He also dislikes the use of firearms ("I wouldn't be caught dead using those things"). Lastly, Sonic hates being referred to by formal titles such as "Mr." or "Master", despite Cream's insistence of the former.

Hobbies: Venturing across the globe to random regions, music, sitting back and chilling/dozing anywhere whether it be at a beach or on a tree branch (Sonic is surprisingly lazy when given the chance), and books (Considering he endeavored to save the Arabian Nights with one of his three wishes from Erazor Djinn).

Favorite Food(s): Chili dogs. (Sonic's fondness for Chili Dogs became canon upon the introduction of the official Sonic Advance 3 Strategy Guide [the Japanese one] when it mentioned Sonic's love for Chili Dogs. For those who doubt that, watch the opening scene to Sonic and the Black Knight; He's got one dog in each hand, eats one with great relish and expresses disappointment at losing the other.)

Favorite Color(s): It might be red since his shoes are red, along with the Cyclone car he drove in the Sonic Drift games, and of course, the Tornado 1 is red. Though, it could be blue as well, considering his ego.

Favorite Music Genre(s): Rock, Punk, Techno

Occupation: Unemployed. Hero of the world isn't really a compensating position, anyway.

Place of Residence: The world is Sonic's home. However, he has a homely place seen in the first scene of Sonic and the Secret Rings. Nothing more is known about this place though. Indeed, it's not indisputably confirmed that it is his home at all, but it's not very likely a drifter like Sonic would take up a permanent residence...at least, not at his current age.

GAME INFORMATION

Franchise Name: Sonic the Hedgehog

Original Purpose: Mascot of SEGA (Service Games) Enterprises to stand up against their rival Nintendo's mascot, Mario, and to be a pop culture video game character; Main character of the series and reluctant love interest for Amy Rose

Current Purpose: Hasn't changed. Although, Sega has now gone third-party (as SEGA Corporation), is devoted to software, and merged with the Sammy corporation (Sega Sammy Holdings). Not only that, but Sonic games are released mostly on Nintendo consoles, ending the rivalry between the two companies.

Date of first promotion/presence in the industry: The first promotions of Sonic the Hedgehog began in late 1990, where an image of Sonic was depicted on the side of the tour bus of the Japanese band, Dreams Come True. His first official promotion was at the United States of America in his first video game, Sonic the Hedgehog, released on June 23rd, 1991 on the Sega Genesis (called the Sega Mega Drive in other nations).

Years in Service: 22 years and still going...

Impact on Series: He's the titular star of this franchise and the driving force behind it. Whatever game isn't centered completely around him in every single way tends to be looked upon with great disdain for various reasons that people have no problem listing off. And even then, Sonic himself can be and has been looked down upon if he's not portrayed exactly how critics and fans want, from visual design and gameplay to voice.

Original Designer: Naoto Ohshima

Design Process: Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog was designed for the games by one Naoto Ohshima of Sonic Team. Sonic was the very first character of the franchise to be declared an actual Sonic character. The design process took several months and after many designs, the choices were eventually narrowed down to an armadillo and a hedgehog. Yuji Naka suggested a hedgehog in the first place, while the armadillo can be assumed suggested because it was another animal that could roll up into a ball, which is what they were looking for regarding the gameplay premise. Eventually, the hedgehog was chosen and was designed as Sonic by Naoto Ohshima. Key members of Sega's US branch, under initial scrutiny from Japan, remodeled Sonic's look to the hedgehog we were introduced to.

Possible design inspirations: It's possible Sonic was not originally created by Sonic Team. Although his appearance and design was made by them, the name and concept of a blue, speedy hedgehog named Sonic dates back to the 40's. Mary Garnet was a popular writer of children's books at the time and her husband was a test pilot for the United States Air Force. Her husband had an operation going on, which he named Project "Blue Gale." The purpose? To build the first plane that could break the sound barrier.

Mary always called her husband "hedgehog," since when he took his flight helmet off, his hair appeared to be all spiky, resembling the quills on a hedgehog's back. This name stuck and it inspired Mary to decorate his flight jacket with a blue hedgehog mascot.

Since he was so busy with the military, it was up to Mary to raise their daughter Sherry, to whom Mary would always tell stories. Oddly enough, the hero of the stories was always a blue hedgehog named Sonic. They'd tell about how Sonic would always save the world and protect innocent people and small animals from evil men. These stories were used as the basis for the video game story of Sonic the Hedgehog.

On October 14th, 1947, General Charles Elwood Yeager (AKA Chuck Yeager) became the first man to break the sound barrier with the rocket-powered X-1 fighter plane, earning the dub The Fastest Man Alive. But, a very little known event occurred earlier that same day. It has been lost in record books as far as anyone knows, but it involved how another pilot, named Hedgehog, had set out to break the record himself. He came close, but his plane began to vibrate and eventually exploded into a fireball. A tragedy that was shadowed by the historic event that took place afterwards. Nobody remembers the name of the brave pilot, but veterans of the airbase still remember the emblem of Sonic the blue hedgehog.
Whether or not the Mary Garnet story is true remains to be seen. But shades of it are visible all over the Sonic franchise, most aptly in the old SatAM Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon. The lyrics of the opening theme referred to Sonic as The Fastest Thing Alive, similar to Chuck Yeager's dub, The Fastest Man Alive. Plus, Sonic's uncle in the series is named Chuck. That name was also given to Chris' Uncle in the recent series, Sonic X.

But most importantly, the story is told in a pamphlet that accompanied the Sonic Adventure 2 Special 10th anniversary gift pack. Many believe that the Mary Garnet story is a fake, made only to further the imaginations of the fans, making Sonic Team completely responsible for Sonic's creation. But it is possible that the blue hedgehog we know and love was based off of a very tragic story dating back to World War II.

Personal character analysis/commentary (by Ryan the Game Master):

When you're the star of your own series, you've kinda got a right to be a little prideful and this star is as prideful as they come. Sonic has come a mighty long way since his debut in 1991 and been through a lot of changes, for better and worse. While most things haven't changed (his resolve, ego and attitude), some things have (more approachable, evolving from the loose-cannon ass we grew up with). Whether or not that's a good thing is still up for debate.

Part of Sonic's charm is his inability and refusal to conform. He does whatever he wants his way and doesn't give a damn about rules. He may be an ass most of the time (in some media, anyway), but his good qualities far outweigh the bad. He does what's right, regardless of consequences, even if he winds up looking like the bad guy. That's what I like about him.

As far as I'm concerned, Sonic is Sonic. He's still around, still cool and still fun to play with. That's really all that matters. All this other stuff everyone's been bitching about is just meaningless fluff, and you know Sonic ain't the type of person to sit through nearly two decades of fluff and let it get him down. No, he's too busy running around adventuring. He's got places to go, people to see, things to do and butt to kick. If he were real, you know there's not a chance in hell he'd listen to all this fuss. He'd just laugh and zoom off, busting the sound barrier all over our sorry butts.

That's the viewpoint I'm taking from this point. I'm going to enjoy myself playing the games, experiencing the adventures, immersing myself in the ongoing story (22 years in the making) of a boy against a world that's way too small for a life as large as his.

"While most things haven't changed (his resolve, ego and attitude), some things have (more approachable, evolving from the loose-cannon ass we grew up with). Whether or not that's a good thing is still up for debate."

As I grow older, I feel a stronger need for a more loose-cannon ass version of Sonic, not because "my childhood" or whatever. I think because I'm a little more jaded and weary of the world and how it works. I want him to be a force of nature that's unpredictable, out of anybody's control. But it's like he has matured across the several medias and mediums, calmed down a little too much and then tried to gain a little more of that attitude and "edge" back again.

Part of Sonic's charm is his inability and refusal to conform. He does whatever he wants his way and doesn't give a damn about rules. He may be an ass most of the time (in some media, anyway), but his good qualities far outweigh the bad. He does what's right, regardless of consequences, even if he winds up looking like the bad guy. That's what I like about him.

It's inspiring, but morally ambiguous to think that he'll stick up for what's right regardless, even if he's seen as the bad guy. That's inspiring. I AM the bad guy. I'm waging war on fangirls who misrepresent Sonic and get away with it, not only that but get ridiculously popular for it. I can't explain but Sonic means something to me that's special, more than any other fictional character... he's the opposite of subservience.

Other people are good, and I'm evil. But I have a right to hate them anyway, especially if I can turn that hate into something positive.

I'm sorry, but, no. From where's I'm standing, there's nothing positive about your approach. Turning Sonic the Hedgehog into...that is also misrepresentation, "clone" or not.

Moreover, embracing evil and hatred is just adding to the problem, and that doesn't help anyone. You think you're in the right by raging against those who make your favorite character look bad, but you're no better, I'm afraid. In fact, I'd say you're worse. Hatred breeds more hatred, and this fandom has enough of that crap as it is.

Sonic is unpredictable. He still has attitude. There's plenty about him that hasn't changed. But, he also needs to evolve as time goes on so he doesn't grow stale and static, and he can't afford that (especially since people still have a problem calling him "relevant" today).

Look, everyone has their own view of what Sonic should be. That's understandable. But, you shouldn't bring too much of yourself into it, otherwise it becomes less about him and more about you. If this hurts you, then I suggest taking a good, hard look at yourself. You're not doing the right thing by contributing to the negativity. The sooner you realize that, the better.

Yes, Sega can, but they won't.

You're going to have to be more specific.
