Sonic Prime

Sonic Prime

Sonic the Hedgehog is a Mobian hedgehog gifted with the power of super-sonic speed, and the ability to control the power of the Chaos Emeralds. Considered by many to be the hero of Mobius, he has opposed the villainous reign of the evil Dr. Ivo Robotnik since his early childhood and recently his alternate universe counterpart Dr. Eggman. Sonic's speed is his ultimate weapon, and he has used it to help those in need, as well as foil his enemies' plans. Although he is sometimes overconfident and assumes he can deal with things on his own, Sonic also realizes he has friends to back him up in troubled situations. The strongest of them and primary agent of Team Fighters and formerly part of the Knothole Freedom Fighters, he is willing to put his life on the line for those he cares about.


Early Life

Sonic was born on day 162 of the year 3220 during the early days of the Great War to the loving couple Jules and Bernadette Hedgehog in Mobotropolis. While his parents originally named him after his grandfathers, Sonic quickly picked up his nickname due to his incredible speed which he would use to run everywhere. Sonic eventually had his name legally changed, with no disrespect meant to his forebears. (StH: #112, CSE)

Sonic first met Sally Acorn during one of his uncle's many visits to King Maximillian Acorn. When the King realized the Great War was going badly for the Mobians, he ordered a large number of the children in the city, including his daughter and Sonic, to the sanctuary of Knothole Village under the protection of Rosie and Julayla. (StH: #64, #112)

Sonic and his friends returned to Mobotropolis at the end of the Great War. Both of Sonic's parents had fallen victim to the Roboticizer, his father during the Great War and his mother after its end, forcing his Uncle Chuck to raise him alone. Sonic and his friends were present on the day Miles "Tails" Prower was born, and Sonic was sure they would grow up to be great friends. Later that same day, Warlord Julian launched a full scale coup d'état and took over the city, renaming it Robotropolis. During his takeover, Sonic's uncle Chuck and pet dog Muttski were captured and roboticized as well, effectively making Sonic an orphan. Sonic himself was tasked with locating as many children as he could find and bring them to the haven of Knothole by Colonel Tig Stripe, which he successfully did. While in Knothole, Sonic and Sally became inspired by Tig Stripe's band of Freedom Fighters, eventually forming their own group called the Knothole Freedom Fighters with their friends Rotor Walrus, Antoine D'Coolette and young Miles "Tails" Prower. Together they promised to overthrow Robotnik and take back their city. (StH: #43, #78, #79, #142, #143, SSS: #9)


Sonic's most notable ability is his super speed, allowing him to run at speeds far surpassing mach 1, although his top speed is unknown. His speed allows him to perform impressive feats, such as vibrating at high speeds to such a degree that it allows him to pass through solid objects or creating after-images of himself. It is possible that he can access greater levels of speed when greatly angered or upset, as he was able to travel from the ruins of Knothole to the east coast of the continent and back in record time during his battle with the Egg Beater. (StH: #71, #119, #175)

His speed also increases his combat abilities. His "figure 8" move increases his speed, strength and allows him to briefly hover in midair. Spinning around in an upright position, Sonic can become a makeshift tornado, taking down any foes close to him. Sonic can achieve similar effects by spinning his arms around, propelling him into the air and defeating anyone caught in his path. (StH: #25)

Another ability of Sonic's is the absorption of Power Rings, which he uses to get a boost of energy during battle as well as to facilitate his super transformations into such incarnations as Super Sonic, Ultra Sonic, Solar Sonic, Eco Sonic, and Polar Sonic. Following the destruction of Knothole, it is revealed that Sonic has absorbed so many Power Rings that their energy has given him increased healing abilities. He also possesses the curious ability to negate negative influences brought on by Chaos Energy, as shown by his defeats of Perfect Chaos, Enerjak, and his resistance to Dr. Finitevus' hex. This ability also enabled him to absorb energy from the Master Emerald despite its being locked by Finitevus' hex, something that even the wizard Merlin Prower was at a loss to explain. (StH: #177, #187)

Additionally, while this version of Sonic was adventuring in outer space, he was implanted with a device allowing him to understand all languages (including those of 'regular' animals). (StH: #127)


Throughout his life, Sonic has exhibited a great desire for adventure and excitement, in keeping with his super speed. Thrill-seeking aside, he genuinely cares for the people and things he fights for, which at times has led him to break the rules in order to do what he thinks must be done. His greatest flaw in this area may be that he has developed something of a need for action, which leaves him uneasy in times of peace and often influences his decisions more heavily than any other factor. Though he has great loyalty to his friends, family, nation, and Mobius in general, he has shown a tendency to be hesitant about committing to anything that doesn't allow him to fight for the things he cares about.

In dealing with his enemies, Sonic is usually light-hearted in behavior, often mocking his opponents with insults and puns. Given how serious he can be in some cases, however, it is likely that these jokes are an attempt to lighten the mood or project an air of confidence. Of course, it also serves (in most cases) to aggravate his enemies to the point of distraction. A milder form of this behavior is found in ribbing of his various friends and allies, who he often aggravates while attempting to get them to loosen up. However, after Sally's roboticization and the events that followed, he has become far more serious, moodier, distrusting, and unforgiving than usual, most often during the course of battle, though he did try to maintain his cool, light-hearted demeanour after Team Fighters began their mission. Conversely, he can also become friendly to those he previously distrusted in a flash, as seen by how he quickly forgave Mega Man even after the they had been trying to destroy each other just moments before, much to the boy robot's surprise, though this was most likely because it was all just a misunderstanding and Sonic didn't wish to broad on it.

Sonic enjoys being laid back and confident, rarely showing any signs of being put off by anything. It is only in the moments of greatest loss (such as the destruction of Knothole, Eggman's [temporary] descent into madness, and Sally's roboticization) that his macho and carefree appearance falls away.

Deeply devoted to his friends and family, Sonic enjoys helping them every chance he gets. In particular, he helps less confident individuals express themselves and toughen up, as when he helped Mina Mongoose use her singing talents. However, he also has something of a bullheaded streak which causes him to think that he is right and everyone else is wrong. This had led him to clash with other such strong personalities as Knuckles, Geoffrey, Monkey Khan, Tails, and even Sally. In the case of the latter, Sonic prefers to make up plans as he goes along, whilst Sally is more tactically minded.

For all his rough edges, Sonic has shown himself to be quite a gentleman, almost always showing respect to women. This has been demonstrated in his first encounters with Bunnie and Rouge the Bat, as well as in other situations. While he tends to treat her differently, Sonic also shows Sally a great deal of respect, though their years of being acquainted and closer relationship seems to lead him to treat her more like "one of the guys" in many group situations.
