Top Ten Fastest Sonic the Hedgehog Characters


The Top Ten

1 Sonic Sonic Sonic 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.

Is this even a question? Of course Sonic is fastest!

Sonic is the fastest thing alive.

Sonic is the fastest DUH

Duh - sonictiger

2 Shadow Shadow Shadow 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.

Shadow is is the second if not the fastest character in Sonic and that's with his rings, and by the way as far as I know he has only taken off TWO rings at a time so that means that he wants to take out a massive Army by only taking off only two rings so better bet that he is at LEAST as fast as Sonic when he takes off two rings so when he takes off four...

Shadow is def faster than tails what?

I think Shadow is the fastest.

Shodow has the power of shadow and can fade when he fades he can run faster.

3 Tails Tails Miles "Tails" Prower is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series, and the title character's best friend and sidekick.

Yes, Sonic is faster than him, but he is faster than Knuckles. Therefore, he flys somewhere between 770 and 400 mph.

also he cute just look at him

He’s epic cute skillful

"Hello, I'm Tails! I'm 8 and I'm in the top five for the fastest character! Yay! "

Me: good for you, kid.

4 Blaze

Blaze is my hero

I say blaze is quite fast and somehow equal to Sonic

Blaze is by far the most fastest sonic female

Yeah, I'll have to put Blaze as the fastest after Sonic and Shadow.

5 Knuckles Knuckles Knuckles the Echidna is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is a red anthropomorphic echidna who is determined and serious, but sometimes gullible. He has the ability to glide and climb up walls, and is a powerful fighter due to his spiked hands.

Knock Knock, it's Knuckles

I love knuckles

He can fly and climb

I think knuckles is fast

6 Metal Sonic Metal Sonic Metal Sonic is one of Eggman’s fastest and most powerful creations. Programed to be better than Sonic in any aspect possible, he can shoot electro balls, shoot electricity downward, do a boost, and make himself invincible. He fight’s Sonic each time he gets stronger, and when he gains enough power, more.

He literally outspeeds Sonic in every battle against him by pushing his hardware past its limits

He was the fastest in adventure 2

12 Mephiles
13 Seelkadoom

He is stronger and more stealth than sonic or shadow

In Sonic RPG Episode 8, when Super Sonic was using Light Speed Attack to catch Shadow, Seelkadoom caught up to Sonic with barely any effort. He even said "It seems that light speed just isn't enough! "

How is seelkadoom faster than sonic he literally is the fastest thing alive sonic is probably way faster than seelkadoom

14 Amy Rose Amy Rose Amy Rose is a fictional character in SEGA's Sonic the Hedgehog series. She is a pink anthropomorphic hedgehog with a cheerful, competitive personality, and is infatuated with the series' main character, Sonic. She serves as the first playable female character in the series.

She is slow and has no personality.

Slow I hate her

Always one step behind sonic and tails.

15 Egg Man

Sonic can't catch him. It was an old game, one of the first, but I forget what it's called. He can outrun Sonic, what more is there to say

It's called sonic the hedgehog and sonic the hedgehog 2... "I can't remember the name" - Sanicball

Play Sonic 2 and by the end of the game, you will see how fast he really is.

In the classic games he is even faster then sonic-_- for... Some... Reason - kredenckitsune

He out ran sonic and the end of sonic 2

Espio's appearance in Knuckles' Chaotix depicts him as a character with a hot temper which causes Charmy to remind him about his manners. In Sonic Heroes, more.

He's a top scorer

3rd official fastest Sonic character.

18 Doctor Eggman Doctor Eggman Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik is a fictional video game character and the main antagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, created by Sega.

Well classic sonic is slower than modern sonic and classic eggman is skinnier than modern egg man. So egg man is faster than sonic on sonic 1and sonic 2 and sonic 3

End of Sonic 2, believe me, sonic can't catch up to him!

The definite fastest thing alive, Sonic is a snail compared to him.

Oh... I thought this said "fattest" Sonic characters.

21 Bunnie D'Coolette
22 Cream the Rabbit Cream the Rabbit

Cream is a beautiful rabbit. She reminds me of a rabbit of which I once loved. Let me tell you the story.
Once upon a time, I found a rabbit on the side of the road. She was a creamish/orange color. I took her in naturally, and we became the best of friends. One day, she ran away. I was distraught, depressed, and lost all will to live. But suddenly, a new challenger appeared! It was none other than Sonic himself. The blue bastard showed up at my doorway, holding my little bunny baby pal. I was so happy, that I jazzed everywhere. Sonic left in a flash, but right then, the bunny came to life. She spoke to me, stating her name was in fact Cream the Rabbit.
"I have many things to accomplish, and many places to be. I'm sorry I can not stay here, but I will return. And when I do, I will be the fastest Sonic character."

She can move faster and she can fly
