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.

To tell the truth, I really hated the octopus scene from the Sonic BOOM episode Buster - Tails is smarter than that, they should have gone with T-pup instead and had a reverse ending that has Tails showing them T-pup and everybody loving it expect for Sticks... and maybe other pets.
It would have shown just how smart he truly is with the machine foreshadowing Amy's love for puppies.
Also, they could have switched the creator of Buster to Dave the intern.
That... that might have been better.
Besides, Egg-man would near create anything like that - even as a joke, but you know who would... Dave the intern.
Yeah, Sonic BOOM just weakened both Tails and Egg-man's IQ levels despite Tails showing that he really was smart at times.
#Buster was a terrible episode...

Miles "Tails" Prower is truly a genius at eight years old and if time means anything in the Sonic series, this little guy might actually be the smartest thing alive with Egg-man/Robotnik coming a close second due to his age seeing that his old and Tails is young.
Wave and Cream come pretty close just as much as Amy Rose, but still, if everything is correct in the Sonic cannon, Tails is smarter than both Sonic and Egg-man with the two tailed fox offering a friendly helping hand to his best friend and any friend that needs his brains/brain power.
Heck, can you imagine him as a villain.
He might actually be the Gellert Grindelwald of the Sonic series if he was.

Tails and Egg-man should be a tie, they clearly out smart each other daily.
So... Tails might be smarter, but, Egg-man gets the upper hand once in awhile, once in a full moon.
Besides, Egg-man overlooks everyone while Tails doesn't - even Dark Oak know that.
I have always wondered what would happen if Tails and Egg-man teamed up to take down Sonic.
Who would win?
Sonic or Tails and Egg-man.

I'm planning on rewriting Sonic BOOM as my own fanfiction series pretty soon and it will have my OC villain Professor Kitsune as a villain in season three.
He is a Gellert Grindelwald like fox that dresses like Professor Venomous if he was Mister Hyde.
Anyways, Tails is awesome and I can't get enough of him.
He is truly smart with Egg-man catching up with him by a very close second.
…I might end up not writing the remake, but still, I see if I feel like releasing it when its done, Tails is awesome - Taismo forever.

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.

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.

The Contenders

Silver The Hedgehog

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

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.

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!

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

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

Pacahamic the Echidna
Cream the Rabbit

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.

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.

Neo Metal Sonic

He can be even more intelligent than Metal sonic.

he's a robot guys!

Cosmo the Seedrian
Queen Aleena the Hedgehog
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.

Charmy the Bee
Sticks the Badger
