Sonic is famously known as "the blue blur" and he certainly lives up to that title. There isn't a thing that he can't outrun. His nemesis Eggman is constantly making plots to conquer the world but Sonic always sees to it that he's stopped. His buddy, Miles Prower "Tails" is like a little brother to him. Sonic has the ability to harness the power of the Chaos Emeralds; this gives him the ability to use Chaos Control and transform into Super Sonic. One thing that he can't stand is injustice. Any time he sees it being done, he'll charge in to help regardless of the danger involved (and in case you want know, one of Sonic's favorite things IS danger!). Throughout the years, Sonic still remains the world's fastest hypersonic hero!
Note: This section contains plot and ending detail. Be prepared before reading further.
From the very beginning, Sonic has been tackling missions head-on. His original adventures usually involved, saving Flickys or stopping Eggman from creating the Death Egg. His adventures became more broad when he appeared on Nintendo Gamecube. In Sonic Adventure, Sonic discovered an odd liquid form of life called Chaos. While trying to get to the bottom of the Chaos mystery, Sonic also had his hands full trying to stop Eggman and rescue Amy from the doctor. It wasn't long before Sonic discovered Chaos was on a mission for revenge. When this liquid life form collected all seven Chaos Emeralds, it became practically invincible. However, Sonic saved the day when he transformed into Super Sonic and stopped Chaos for good.
In Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, Sonic discovered he was being framed for the criminal activity of a black hedgehog called Shadow. After being sent to jail (and escaping with some help), Sonic learned about the Eclipse Cannon. Eggman planned on using it to take over the world. Sonic instantly went up to space with his friends Tails, Knuckles, and Amy to put a stop to the scheme. Here he collided with Shadow, but managed to defeat him after a pitched battle. It wasn't long before Sonic learned that the Eclipse Cannon was doomed on a direct course to Earth, where it would collide with the planet and blow it up. Teaming up with Shadow, the two managed to stop the threat...even though it cost Shadow dearly. Presuming that Shadow had died, Sonic and co left the colony and returned to Earth. (For additional information about this story see the Shadow the Hedgehog page).
In Sonic Heroes, Sonic, Knuckles, and Tails received a message from Dr. Eggman, saying that he had created the "ultimate weapon" and that he would be able to take of the world in three days. Sonic and co began their mission to stop the crazy scheme. Along the way, they ran into Amy Rose and Shadow as well (who certainly wasn't dead as everyone had thought). Sonic soon discovered Eggman's air fleet and raided it. After destroying some of the battle ships, Sonic and co met up with Teams Dark, Chaotix, and Rose. They soon discovered a shocking secret. Metal Sonic was the true villian! He was pretending to be Eggman, and was on the verge of conquering the world. After transforming into Super mode, Team Sonic made an end of him.
In Sonic Riders, Sonic goes head-to-head with a mysterious group of birds-the Babylon Rogues. Once Sonic, and his friends Knuckles, Tails, and Amy, are aware of a connection between the strange new-comers and Dr. Eggman, Sonic is sure something is afoot. Eggman is hosting the Ex-World Grand Prix, a race to see who's the best of the best with Ex-treme Gear...and the prize is the Chaos Emeralds! Sonic enters, determined to win, and soon finds that he, and the leader of the Rogues, Jet the Hawk, are strong rivals. During the final race of the Ex-World Grand Prix, Sand Ruins, Sonic loses the race to Jet (who cheats in order to win). Jet then uses the Chaos Emeralds and the Control Box to reveal the Babylon Gardens, the ancient home of his ancestors. Sonic and Jet rush to the island and race to reach the ancient ruins where a special treasure is said to be stored (a treasure that can be revealed with the help of the Control Box). Sonic arrives at his goal first but refuses to take Control Box from Jet. Sonic's company and Jet's team enter the ruins and find themselves face to face with the Babylon Guardian. After working together to defeat the guardian, Sonic and Jet discover the ancient treasure of Babylon-a magic carpet, the prototype of Ex-treme Gear! With their mission ended, Sonic and Jet part ways, however, the hawk is determined to have the final say and says that he will return to face off with Sonic again. This statement is proved as Jet returns in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity. For more information about this story and the characters involved, look up the members of the Babylon Rogues in the Sonic Encyclopedia.
In Sonic the Hedgehog, our hero makes new friends...and new enemies! Sonic visits the city of Soleanna on the night of the Sun Festival, just in time to rescue Princess Elise from the clutches of Dr. Eggman. After a hasty retreat, Sonic runs into a hedgehog named Silver who mysteriously calls him the "Iblis Trigger". The strange new-comer puts up a fight, and Elise is captured by Eggman's robot during the battle. Just as Silver floors Sonic, Amy dashes between the two (having met Silver earlier) and stops the fighting. Silver later becomes an ally to Sonic after realizing his mistake. After a series of adventures, Sonic finally manages to rescue Elise from Eggman. However, this victory is short-lived. As the two walk along unexpecting the coming tragity, Mephiles the Dark appears behind Sonic and shoots a beam through his body. Sonic falls to his knees mortally wounded before collapsing in a limp heap. Elise starts to cry, hence, summoning Iblis and allowing Mephiles to join up with him and form Solaris. Shadow, Rouge, Omega, Knuckles, Tails, Amy, Silver, and Elise gather together. Just when it seems that there is no hope, Elise realizes that there may still be time to save Sonic. The friends set out to gather the seven Chaos Emeralds, and their mission to save Sonic succeeds. Utilizing the power of the emeralds, Sonic, Shadow, and Silver transform into their super modes and put an end to Solaris. The adventure ends when Elise blows out the Flames of Disaster (Solaris), hence, sending everyone and everything back into the past where the story first started (only this time without Solaris). Nobody, except for Sonic apparently, has any memory of anything that happened throughout the game. However, Elise can't seem to figure out why the rush of a blue blur running her seems farmiliar.
Sonic has always been one cool, laid-back dude who never gets anxious about anything. In his older appearances, Sonic had a major attitude and was a big showoff. Through the years this began to diminish though. Sonic is usually pretty cool with everything, but occasionally he can become quick tempered or aggresive, particularly towards Dr. Eggman. He has a big competitive streak, and when it comes to competition he becomes focused and his aggression begins to show more clearly. Sonic has a soft spot for anyone in trouble and will show a gentle side to them, even if it's an enemy of his.
Likes and Dislikes
Even though Sonic is a super sonic hero, he still has weaknesses. Sonic is afraid of water and can't swim very well. Though this is not seen on video games, on Sonic X it is very noticeable. If you don't believe me then check out Sonic X episode 20 (Combat Mission Egg Fort II), in which Sonic is driven close to insanity by his fear of water! Sonic hates injustice and he also can't stand boredom. He must constantly be doing something "exciting" or he begins to go nuts.
In his older appearances, and even some of his newer ones, Sonic has an absolute love for chile dogs, his favorite food. He loves danger, and as said above, he can't live without adventure. Nothing is too fast for Sonic, and in his mind the faster things are the better. Anything slow gradually starts to agitate him.
