Top 10 Most Intelligent Sonic the Hedgehog Characters

There are many Sonic the Hedgehog characters who are intelligent. But which Sonic character has the greatest knowledge by far?
The Top Ten
Miles "Tails" Prower Miles Prower, more commonly known by his nickname Tails, is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is a significant main character after the title character Sonic, who is also his best friend.

Tails is unquestionably smarter than Eggman. Eggman's IQ according to Sonic Riders is 300. Tails' IQ according to Sonic Battle is 400, a full hundred points higher. Aside from that, Tails has defeated Eggman in mech battles and has shot down hundreds of Eggman's aerial fighters in his plane. He was also able to reverse Eggman's energy extractor in Lost World, something that even its own creator could not do.

The only reason Eggman is able to keep up with Tails technologically is because he's more ruthless. Tails isn't the sort of person who would abduct small animals and shove them into robots. Otherwise there would be no contest between the two. Tails is the most intelligent character in the franchise. Period.

It's a shame that SEGA mistreats his character now days by having other characters replace him as Sonic's sidekick which would be more stuck up if the blue blur ended up using Amy or Cream as his new sidekick - and he doesn't even love Amy, she isn't his girlfriend.
Heck, the little guy came in handy when they went head to head with The Metarex while Sonic ended up getting captured or beaten by the aliens in questions with Chris being no help what so ever against them expect for when it came to inventing gear that was already used by Shadow.
It just makes me wonder what would happen if Tails just left them right in the middle of The Metarex Sega.
Would they stop him or not?

Tails does have an attack were he can slice through robots with his tails, heck, I can even imagine him being able to use a 1000 degree knife attack when his teamed up with Blaze in a tag team battle, cutting through robots while melting them at the same time.
SEGA, do something like that in a future game, trust me, it'll be pretty cool seeing two characters mix both of their powers into one attack by teaming them up with another character such as Blaze, Silver, Cream and of course, Omega.
Besides, they could have Tails be the creator of these tag team attacks alongside Blaze when they use that 1000 degree tail spin attack I was on about beforehand.
Just think of the pun names you can use for each tag team.
And it'll show just how smart Tails truly is by mastering each one.
I don't think SEGA is going to use this idea, but, it could work, right... right.

The Sonic fandom has had a lot of brainy character such as Sally Acorn, Amy Rose, Rouge, Doctor Egg-man/Doctor Robotnik and Tails's best friend, Sonic himself.
However, none of them come close to the level of brain power this little fox has.
Not even Rotor Walrus could match wit with him and he was one of his teachers alongside Sally Acorn herself along with his bro Sonic who made him kinda a lot like him.
Heck, this Gellert Grindelwald like two tailed fox really takes the cake when it comes to smarts with the only person that can match his raw brain power by 50% is the one and only Doctor Egg-man or Doctor Robotnik seeing that his real name is Robotnik with Egg-man being his nickname given to him by Sonic which really caught on.
Besides, can you imagine this guy as a Egg Boss or as the new Egg-man.
Miles Prower - Gellert Grindelwald...
Get the picture.

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

Eggman is more intelligent because his IQ is 300 and Tails's IQ is 290 also he build a robot that was INVISIBLE and he studied technology all his life

Come on, guys! Eggman is literally the most intelligent of all the characters! I'm not saying this because I favor him - in fact, he's my 2nd favorite character to Tails!

Sure, creates robots and destructive things

Eggman had clearly more time than tails to live and learn,he have been always inspired by his grandfather "Gerald Robotnik" Since His Childhood being how gerald usually had fame by his inteligence on the world at least before he have created shadow and then made the G.U.N act up,as shadow could have been a threat for them, still,on fact Eggman's Inteligence Surpass the ones of Tails by his unmatchable Inteligence And His iq of 300!, which tails,being too young even efforting at his max,still would not be able to reach this score for match with Eggman's ones

Wave the Swallow

Very smart how she put that bomb on blue star in riders

Shadow the Hedgehog 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.

I agree he should be number one. Next to Silver, he is one of the coolest. BUT Miles is also very smart. So I'm satisfied with him being at number 4.

He can figure out what his enemies are up to and catch them off guard in seconds.

He was able to see through egg man despite being programmed not to question him.

Eggman's dad created Shadow to be wise. Clearly Shadow has to be at the top.

Sonic the Hedgehog 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.

Intelligence is not simply defined by one's IQ alone, but by their ability to overcome obstacles, to persevere. You can be as smart as Albert Einstein, but if you're so arrogant that you do not plan for flaws, stamp your foot into the ground with rage, then you're not intelligent at all. Sonic does not prepare for things to happen, but he goes with the flow and prevails in the end despite the likelihood of success. He does not get angry, he continues. That, is true genius, no matter how high your IQ is.

Okay first episode is THE proof of how smart he is. When he actually destroyed Eggman's machine this way. Plus, look at how fast he is and how well he is able to manage it too! Also, his behavior in general, I don't see a dumb person being this way. If I make sense

He clearly is the most SMART! he always runs at the best speed and is most optimized. If you watch sonic the adventure 2 (an AMAZING game FOR YOuR INFO) you can clearly see that he has drawn many mathematical arythimitics, demonstaightening his superior Intelligents!

How is Silver smarter than Sonic?!

Tikal the Echidna

She's very smart.

Rouge the Bat

Rouge is a strategic genius, and great at manipulating people. She knows how to get what she wants, as seen in sonic x, but is not smarter than Tails. I also understand why she isn't higher on the list.

I understand why she's not higher, as a kid it's very easy to overlook manipulative intelligence in a character since it's so low key, but I think any older Sonic fans can agree that she damn well knows how to get what she wants without her peers even knowing she's doing it. She's like the Littlefinger of Sonic. Lets be real, Tails and Wave may be great mechanics, but they're no strategic geniuses.

How is she not higher? She's one of the smartest characters to ever exist in the franchise. As a spy, she hacks computers and knows what kind of resources needed to do something. This list is messed up.

She's very clever and sneaky.

Blaze the Cat

Why are you guys in love with blaze the cat you guys want to mery her I hate blaze the cat I wanna kill blaze the cat my hated characters blaze the cat. Silver the hedgehog. That's it I hate blaze the cat and silver the hedgehog

Blaze should be up there between Wave and Shadow. She fights with power, speed, and technique all combined.

Blaze The butt I hate blaze the cat

She's also very intelligent.

Big the Cat

In sonic team racing, he was the only one who thought Dodonpa was good, and he was right! Forget about tails and Eggman! Big is the true genius of the sonic franchise.

Big is actually a smart character. He even taught Cream how to play chess.

He's obviously hiding his secret wisdom.

Silver The Hedgehog

He should also have the potential to be one of the smartest sonic characters ever next to Tails and others.

The Contenders
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 smarter than Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic keeps forgetting Amy Rose's date & always makes many mistakes. Amy Rose is smarter & better than Sonic. Yeah, I said it! Look at the boxart of Sonic Adventure, Sonic looks very ignorant. Amy Rose is smart according to Sonic Boom. And Amy Rose would be the best drummer in the Sonic franchise who is a good guy.

Amy is way smarter then Sonic! She deserves at least number six!

I say she should be higher then Sonic! Like come on in the comics/seires/movies she gives the team INCLUDING SONIC ORDERS/PLANS like a LEADER and and acts like ONE! So that’s shoes LEADERSHIP and INTELLIGENCE! to be honest she Should be the FIRST or the SECOND smartest female character in the franchise!

Knuckles the Echidna 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.

Knuckles is also smart even if he's reckless. don't underestimate him.

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

In my opinion, he's the smartest and craziest eggman in the multi-verse. lets not forget, he did start a war single handily in the comics against the entire zone cop corps.

Dr. Gerald Robotnik

He created Shadow

Cream the Rabbit

She isn't as smart as Tails or Egg-man for that matter seeing that she only believes in Sonic and nobody else, unless your counting Amy... not Shadow... :-(
I also can't stand the idea of Creails or Tails X Cream because of fans like Launny ruining it for me with their art, stories and comics... :-(
She's about as smart as Itchy from The Simpsons if you ask me and even then I can't imagine Creails being a thing thanks to the fans and the fact that I like Taismo.
She also doesn't believe in him and treats him like dirt most of the time despite her treating Chris as dirt a lot more than the twin tailed fox in question.
Tails is still my favorite character, but, I still like Cream and her mother Vanilla as characters in the fandom.
(Why wasn't she in Sonic BOOM alongside her mother Vanilla?)
We could have gotten a baking joke from them or a gag scene were Tails turns a character into a blueberry to get revenge on them for mistreating him in the past and they almost end ...more

Why wasn't she in Sonic BOOM?
She would have been great in the episode Chez Amy.
Heck, the plot could have been that Vanilla and Cream have moved to the island to open a shop and Amy takes the place over in order to get revenge on Dave the intern for messing up her order.

She can help out so very well

Vector the Crocodile Vector the Crocodile is a fictional anthropomorphic crocodile from the Sonic the Hedgehog series who debuted in Knuckles' Chaotix in 1995, and later returned in Sonic Heroes as head detective of the Chaotix Detective Agency. With a great love for music and money (the latter which he is always short more.

This guy isn't very good at his job, yeah I said it.
Heck, why didn't SEGA give him a rival in the form of another detective, only, this guys a ace detective.
Besides, Vanilla could help him out at times.
Sonic Heroes remake anyone...

He is a detective and was able to figure out that eggman was their client in sonic heroes.


Smart, and beautiful

Well, his intelligence is debatable. He seems really smart... also really arrogant.

Pacahamic the Echidna
Espio the Chameleon Espio The Chameleon is a Sonic character first appearing in the 1995 Sega 32X title, Knuckles' Chaotix alongside Charmy Bee and Vector the Crocodile. 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.

Espio's an alcoholic.

Neo Metal Sonic

He can be even more intelligent than Metal sonic.

he's a robot guys!

Lyric the Last Ancient

He designed a robotic life support suit for himself... IN ANCIENT TIMES! Even Tails isn't that smart. If you want to argue... I'm all in.

Cosmo the Seedrian
Queen Aleena the Hedgehog
Charmy the Bee
Sally Acorn

Come on guys, Sally is pretty smart

She's wise too.
