Most Overrated Sonic Characters

The Top TenXW

1Shadow the HedgehogShadow the Hedgehog is a character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega. He is an artificially created black and red hedgehog whose hover shoes propel him at extreme speeds that rival those of Sonic .

He is ranked as top 2 best liked Sonic character, solely behind the super overrated Sonic the Hedgehog. I do not think he is all that great (he got worse when he got his own game), but I still like Shadow the Hedgehog fine. Keep note to self, that critics gave Shadow the Hedgehog mixed to positive reception in general. At least Shadow the Hedgehog is way better than Sonic. I liked Shadow best in Sonic Boom series where he is actually tall & lankly.

He's really awesome in pretty much every game before Sonic Boom. He used to be an amazing swag guy who literally was super strong. Now all he does is stalk Sonic telling him "you're weak because of your pathetic loyalty to your friends." Thanks Shadow. Just because you don't have friends doesn't mean you attack people because they do.

He is my favorite character...BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN HE ISN'T OVERRATED! Why does he appear in Sonic Boom? What purpose does he serve anymore? I don't understand. - DCfnaf

2Sonic the HedgehogSonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

Sonic the Hedgehog never deserved to be the main star anyways.

Now everyone is starting to hate Mario & love Sonic. what?! Who needs that ?!

Sonic the Hedgehog was ranked as top 1 on most popular Sonic characters by far.

Seriously, is he that good? NO!

Classic Sonic was fine, but all his games were great!

Modern Sonic was awful, and I hate his voice & appearance so much!

Sonic Boom Sonic is inspiring & hilarious.

Good for a main character. It makes me cringe that Nintendo is too scared to give pkmn pro tags, Mario, link, etc... No personality what so ever.

Beyond that, for a hero protagonist... He's pretty unique. Kinda snidy, a little rude, likes to joke, but is adventitious and heroic. Overrated? I don't know. If he is liked by lots, I can see the reason at least. Unlike shadow. Or rouge. Or silver.

I don't really like Sonic, honestly. I never really go for the main protagonist as my favorite. - Wereweegee

3Amy Rose

Underrated and overrated at the same time, Amy Rose is. Amy Rose tied with Knuckles the Echidna to be the two top 4 most popular Sonic the Hedgehog characters. Amy Rose sure received a multiple amount of controversy.

Annoying as hell. Sorry for the language, but its true.

Seriously? I thought all the Sonally and Sonamy shippers were at war! - DCfnaf

4Miles "Tails" Prower

I don't know what your taking about. He's usally overlooked or hated for being 'useless'

5Knuckles the Echidna

I believe that Knuckles the Echidna (and the other members of Team Sonic because of Team Rose's members excluding the underrated Vector) is a very underappreciated because he doesn't rely on anything, is very determined/tough, is rarely annoying, is such a powerful puncher and has complex character design.

Eh, saga making him stupid I think has made his popularity drop.

But yea, people only seem to like him because his abilities in the older games

6Dr. Eggman

I actually like that he's a childish evil genius. Makes him stand out from other evil bland villians.

7Blaze the Cat

Hey, blaze has actual personality & development as well as cool powers! There's good reasons why she's popular.

8Silver the Hedgehog

I would say that Silver is underrated, but he is getting much more fans. I would prefer Classic Silver. Also, couldn't Bowser be Silver's main rival in Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games (for now)?

Whiny stupid brat who think he knows best and tries to get people to do what he wants. He's only like for his stupid powers & because he's from the future. He needed that kick in the face.

11Rouge the Bat

Lets ignore the stereotype that she uses to flirt with m3n to get what she wants, let's ignore she's selfish that thinks anything she wants is 'hers,' let's ignore the fact that she was a tool for shadow and would've let him DESTROY THE WORLD. She's 'sexy.' But Sally is a tramp

The Chao... one of the most overrated characters ever!

Seriously, just because Chaos are completely cute does not mean they are the best. Besides, Chao Garden in Sonic Adventure 1 than Sonic Adventure 2 is way better.
