Top 10 Most Powerful Sonic Characters
The Top Ten
Shadow is the ultimate life form, is immortal, super strong, fast, and filled with chaos energy, so I think it's quite obvious who is the most powerful
Shadow is not immortal. That's a very common mistake. He can't die by aging, but he can still die, it's just very hard to kill him. - corisco42
Why would you not like him? He's just so cool, he's fast, and he's a immortal life form. CHAOS CONTROL. Everyone else would die.
He is the only sonic character I will be on a game he is also competitive like I am sega should make more games to do with shadow rather than just sonic
Read if you want to know more about Shadow the Hedgehog:
Shadow is powerful with Chaos Energy and his extra weponds. But he is NOT immortal...sadly. All of the Sonic Characters who have met this edgy and twisted hedgehog belive that he is immortal because he was created by raw Chaos Energy. Shadow believes it too but there is one thing that is left out...
He can’t be killed by aging do he stays the same age forever. He is in a 15 year old hedgehog body, that is actually 50 BUT is still 15 years old...confusing right? So he can’t age but he still CAN be killed. You just need to pinpoint exactly were is “weak spot” is. If someone can find that spot, he will be killed in a matter of minutes.
Deep and dark stuff just to make his character even more interesting and twisted. That’s why I like his character so much.
In Sonic Unleashed once you went past a checkpoint they would measure how fast you went. The Light Speed Dash measures to be 396 SPD (A.K. A Speed) and the Light Speed Dash is clearly is moving at the speed of light, IT SAYS IT IN IT's NAME! Sonic's top SPD in the game is about 3000 SPD. 3000 divided by 396 = 7.57575757576 or about 8. What does this number mean? It means that Sonic is running over 7x THE SPEED OF LIGHT IN HIS BASE FORM! That is about as fast as Superman flying to the sun and back in less than 2 MINUTES! How fast is Super Sonic then? Super Sonic is 10x more powerful than Sonic in every aspect. 7.57575757576 x 671,000,000 (Speed of Light in MPH) = 5083333333.33 (Sonic's speed in MPH) x 10 = 50833333333.3 (Super Sonic's Speed in MPH) divided by 671000000 = 75.7575757576 or about 76. Super Sonic can fly or run over 75x THE SPEED OF LIGHT! Not to mention Super Sonic was capable of lifting asteroids big enough to destroy planets, blowing up one moon with just one finger, ...more
Well, for the argument of Sonic vs Shadow, I believe that they are equal to each other in combat. Shadow is a bit physically stronger than Sonic, while Sonic is faster than Shadow. It is hinted that there isn't actually an upper limit to Sonic's speed in some games and comics. Some people even theorize that Sonic chooses not to run at full speed to avoid damaging the world around him and so that he can avoid Eggman/Robotnik's traps.
Shadow may have a some Chaos power, but it is limited without the assistance of a chaos emerald; without one he can only teleport short distances, (by the way Sonic can use Chaos control as well if he were to hold a Chaos Emerald) and the only Chaos attack Shadow can use without an emerald is Chaos Spear, while this is still a cool attack it is not all that powerful. Now Shadow can use more Chaos power by removing his inhibitor rings, an example of this is Chaos Blast, but doing this will drain away his stamina in less then a minute, possibly even ...more
Sonic is the ULTIMATE Hero of retro gaming and Mobius! You guys might think shadow is, but let me ask you. How come sonic's always saving the world while shadow is moping around STILL trying to figure out his past and thinking about Maria? Sonic saved South Island from Eggman, destroyed the death egg TWICE (actually 3 times), stopped Metal Sonic and Eggman from destroying the future, destroyed perfect Chaos, defeated and killed DARK GAIA, Stopped eggman AGAIN saving AN ENTIRE ALIEN RACE!, And deafeting the time eater (egg-men) from destroying him and his friend's past! And what's shadow done? HELP sonic defeated another abomination, HELPED sonic defeat the Bio-hazard, and destroyed a comet... That's all? I mean come on! Sonic (and knuckles) is the only one to go hyper! I mean yeah there was nazo unleashed but that wasn't an official hyper shadow OR an official Dark shadow. Don't correct me shadow lovers but I believe and KNOW that sonic is the all time most powerful sonic character! ...more - Zombieman99

Ok, so check it out: you've got a guy who uppercuts a super transformation and succeeds in knocking him into his normal form. This same guy holds his own in a fight against Shadow in Sonic X when Shadow was completely broken in that show in terms of accurate power. We know already that Knuckles is intellectual in terms of combat and has a more tactical approach. It takes more than blunt force to be strong and Knuckles supports this as he is able to keep up with Sonic's speed in hand to hand combat. His knowledge of chaos energy rivals if not surpasses Shadow's.
Knuckles is already mature in sonic boom, an upcoming sonic show that later airs on Cartoon Network and some French T.V. companies, he is slightly much taller than tails the fox and slightly much heavier than Amy rose
This is a guy who punched Sonic in his Super form proving that he's as powerful as Sonic if not stronger as well as running almost as fast as him. There's a reason he guards the Master Emerald and that's because he's one of the most powerful Sonic CHARACTERS.
I like knuckles and sonic but knuckles is pretty goodV 22 Comments
Tails can do most everything Sonic can, and has his own abilities to make up for what he can't do. He can fly every bit as fast as Sonic can run, even when his hedgehog brother is actually trying to get past him (Sonic Colors); he can use the Spin Dash and Spin Attack just as effectively; and he can slice through robots with his tails for a bit of extra range. He's shown to be incredibly durable, going through plane crashes and laser blasts repeatedly without ever being more than a little disoriented; and strong enough to lift four times his own weight (Sonic and Knuckles at the same time) without slowing down or limiting his flight; and punch through rock (Tails' Adventure).
He can go Super, too. Not as easily as Sonic, because he's young and inexperienced (that's the official reason), but he can.
Even apart from that, he's a genius. He was able to build a replica of a Chaos Emerald, that worked just like the real thing with less energy.
Tails is only slightly slower then sonic but he makes it up with his IQ of 300! He can fly he can also drive sonic to different places with His Plane The Tornado He also has a super form like sonic so tails should be at least in the top three he is way better then knuckles and silver Tails is very Powerful Academic and Speed Wise Go Tails!
He does like everything Sonic does, plus more. - Pikachulover1
Tails may not look or be physically powerful, but his intelligence makes him powerful �"V 8 Comments
Silver is by far one of the most powerful character which is pretty amazing considering he's a naïve, immature 14 year old! To list his powers and abilities would take a very long time but just to note a few of them:
1) Psychokinetic grab- One of Silvers most well known abilities. He can grab almost anything with this ability, including rockets, bullets, people, cars and meteors. He can grab things 20 times his size and weight with ease!
2) Manipulation- With this power silver can use the environment around him to his advantage, such as bending 2 meter thick metal rods, moving stone platforms and using things as lifts. Oh yeah and he can also use this ability to distort and confuse people.
3) Flight- who needs to run fast when you can fly faster? Silver may be one of, if not the slowest character ON FOOT, but when he takes to the sky he becomes just as fast as Sonic himself. In Sonic Generations he was able to keep up with Sonic while flying backwards.
I've never had much experience with Silver, since I'd never had the "joy" of playing Sonic 06. But, from what I know about him, through the Archie Comics series and Sonic Generations, I find it clear that he is one of the most powerful protagonists in the series. His main advantage in power is that he's Psychokinetic which is the ability to move objects with your mind. With this ability, he can stop attacks coming at him, and he can lift about anything! His second most used and most powerful ability is mind-bending. In other words, he can control objects and make them into different shapes. But if that wasn't powerful enough, he was also given the ability to fly! Besides Tails, Cream, Rouge, and Charmy, there really aren't any other characters who can fly besides the super forms. Silver is lucky enough to have that ability when he doesn't even have all of the chaos emeralds. One final thing I should mention is his boss fights. The one in Sonic 06 (according to my experience of ...more
Well, Silver the Hedgehog has many abilities. He has psychokinesis which can stop even Sonic in his tracks and then just beat the heck out of them for however long he wants. He can also use the Spindash and Homing Attack. Not to mention his Super form, Time manipulation and ability to survive OUTSIDE the time stream. While Sonic, Shadow, AND Silver all fought Solaris who is a literal god, they had to defeat him in 3 different areas of time. So Silver REALLY defeated him single-handedly. He also defeated other enemies that not even Sonic could beat. While everyone else fights armies of robots, they all worked as a team. Silver came from an apocalyptic future, where everything is destroyed and/or on fire, he needs to fight a colossus everyday, and everything that normal people would need to survive is practically non-existent. And he only had Blaze. Some people may argue that he was tricked by Mephiles, making him not so strong in the intelligence department. But he was truly desperate, ...more
Silver should be at 2! Because when silver raises his hand up, the person goes flyingV 46 Comments
Nazo is not an official character just something someone made up why is it even in this list, does that mean anyone can make up any character and make them the most powerful ugh this is almost as bad as when I found super saiyan 6 through 10 what the hell goes through the head of people sometimes
Nazo in his base form is stronger than super shadow, in his perfect form (all he needs is the 7 chaos emeralds) he is way stronger than HYPER form!
If Nazo is really as strong as you say he is, then he's literally the most powerful character that has ever interacted with anyone from any Sonic universe ever. - Dan_Gan_Galaxy
Think about it. He could match hyper Shadic (sonic and shadow fused) that weren't powered by chaos emeralds but specialised chaos emeralds that individually had equal power to the master emerald. Scourge had the power of one master emerald and couldn't be stopped by any of the characters in the sonic universe. So he can destroy seven times that power. If you think about it, Hyper Shadic is two beings with that power so fourteen master emeralds. Then he became a Cyborg!
He not canonV 15 Comments
Mephiles is the best sonic villain in the sonic games he is the only character to have a crystal form which just looks so cool
I was going to click on Shadow, but Mephiles has all of Shadow's powers, plus intelligence, manipulation, and duplication.
Mephiles: I killed him, in 3 seconds, made a princess kiss him for my amusement... And then sega brought him back to life. I was very successful at my job, thank you very little.
I believe he is one of the few villains who killed Sonic, right?
Then he's awesome.
Simple as that.
Metal Sonic is a beast it took nearly the entire sonic cast and 3 in super form to beat him in sonic hero's also he is faster then sonic and he has the ability to clone powers metal sonic is the strongest character hands down
The fact that he can copy everyone's data and moves along with Perfect Chaos' data proves that he is the most powerful CHARACTER in the Sonic Universe.
This guy is super fast, can copy anyone's data, turns into a giant dragon like thing without the chaos emeralds, took not only 3 super forms but 9 other normal forms to defeat him. Chew on that Mephiles! Metal needs no stinkin emeralds to turn into a big form of power, also he could just copy your data and whoop your ass in seconds!
I love metal sonic mainly because of how he is designed to be better than sonic in every aspect possible. Isn't he just cool? - MetalSonicV 6 Comments
Blaze, Silver and Shadow all do hold physical abilities which can cause quite dangerous activity.
Many Sonic based characters can do so.
She's super strong, super fast, can fly, control fire, got the Sol Emeralds, the power of Solaris, and the Power of the Stars. She took down Knuckles without breaking a sweat.
She's awesome and she's one of the most powerful female character
She is pretty and looks like she is powerful 😝😝🤑🤑V 11 Comments
Shadow is strong enough with one chaos emerald so when you give him all seven and a super form he becomes SUPER powerful
The ultimate life form
He is better than anyone
I think Hyper Shadow is better in my opnionV 4 Comments
So cool, he is a villain, we love it
He was the time eater before it was cool
He's only in sonic 06, yes. But he's capable of destoring not JUST the world, but TIME! Pat, preasant AND future! And they NEEDED sonic to come back to life to help shadow and silver kill him. This was a great boss and a callenging one too. He is really powerful.
HE IS A ALL POWERFUL ENTITY WHO COULD ONLY BE DEFEATED BY SUPER SHADOW, SUPER SONIC, AND SUPER SILVER.
How is he not number one?
So shadow is super strong and sonic is the main character so what if you put them together and turn it to hyper form?
That is one of sonic and shadow most powerful abilities but I have seen powerful forms of them
He should be 1 because taking shadow and sonic would make a stronger life form especially in hyper form
Yaaasss! My mind is blown!V 10 Comments
It is the best. it is slow but this is dangerous
In sonic 2..? Sonic tries to catch Eggman before he gets into the Death Egg Robot-Faster
In lost world, he punches down a wall, faster than knuckles-Stronger
Smarter than Tails-Smarter
Scourge is one of the most powerful sonic characters in the comic series
Give up the Sonic comic series! This made Archie Comics much worse!
How the hell is this character
Who the heck is this guy and how do you pronounce his name
Seelkadoom can take on super sonic and super shadow
Is he faster then sonic?V 8 Comments
Big the cat is a heavy domestic cat, he likes to fish and is friends with froggy
Just imagine it... Super Big the Cat
Big is stupid
Big the Cat?V 3 Comments
She'd be powerful with a Russian accent & a pear figure!V 3 Comments
Sonic himself is higher on the list than Super Sonic. WHY?!
Super Sonic is powerful not the best
Super sonic you are the best
Not as powerful as Hyper Sonic, he might be x2 less powerful than Hyper Sonic...V 1 Comment
Froggy is the strongest character in all of Sega. He should be the main character. He can easily defeat Shadow, Sonic, Silver, and Knuckles all at the same time! Also, the sun is cold.
Froggy can defeat dark gaia only by staring at him, he's the most powerful character ever, not even super sonic can defeat him
Froggy's a frog, he's just kidding and gets lazy all the time
Vector should be on this listV 3 Comments
Take the ultimate life form and give him a hyper form (counting fact not feat shadow is strongest character)V 3 Comments
He is the most powerful and deserves to be number one he can also upgrade in hyper perfect nazo using the super emeralds. He is the strongest sonic character ever even stronger than Solaris who is the sun God and even said that if absorbs more energy he will be stronger than a God meaning he will stronger than Solaris. It also took. True hyper shadic to defeat him even he couldn't defeat him because he returned in nazo returns. Sega should make him a real character. I have loads of more reasons why nazo is number one but I am going to stop here because I Will be here forever.
Perfect Nazo can get as strong as he wants, he has no limit.V 3 Comments
Eggman on the list twice
Amy Rose needs more credit, when she chases Sonic, and he is the fastest thing in the WORLD, mind you, she is pretty close behind, and really, even Sonic is scared of her, I feel like nobody is actually voting because of strength, but in preference in character, and that is very ignorant, Amy Rose is probably one of the strongest females, if not the strongest.
I would think people would Put Amy number 1 because she always chases sonic she should race him I bet she would beat him Even though he is the FASTEST THING IN THE WORLD ACTUALLY HE IS NOT FASTER THAN FLASH FLASH AND SONIC RACED FLASH REMAINS UNBEATEN
She can hurt lots of people with her hammer
In Sonic X she threw her hammer at a airship twice the second time knocked or out of the air shadow may have lifted an asteroid but keep in mind he didn’t land he used chaos control but that was in his super form and Amy did this with her arm and hammer so technically she is the strongest character SEGA ever made!V 2 Comments
Dark Gaia is without a doubt the most powerful thing in the Sonic Universe as it took both Light Gaia and Super Sonic to stop it and even then it's only really sleeping or trapped, waiting to make a return.
He is way stronger than solaris phase 2 even if he is not perfect dark gaia. He stomps solaris so hard he'll wish he was a dark gaia minnion.
All espio needs to do is turn invisible and stab any sonic character and they are dead. Not to mention he can keep up with most sonic characters and has ninja abilities
Espio's exploding shrunkens and martial arts make him by far the strongest character
The best fighter in the sonic seriesi think he should be 15 at least
BEHOLD MY NINJA POWER!
Guys there is a reason why he is the last of the e series. Why?
To name a few he was built with guns jet boosters rockets the ability to glide and much more I did say a few though.
This guy is tight he is fast and can hover this guy there where two charcters I like in sonic heroes sonic and omega
Two little words super strength
Mighty isn't just strong, he also has a spin dash and he's smart, he should definitely be further up the list
It is shadow and sonic combined so it is the strongest of all strongest
Shadic is the most powerful life form
While perhaps not the most powerful thing in the Sonic Universe, he is probably the most powerful character.
Hyper sonic is below the shadic forms and shadic also one below hyper shadow
Hyper sonic is so cool and has cool colors of course he is the strongestV 2 Comments
I think Dark Sonic is very powerful. In the Archie Sonic comic, Dark Sonic defeats a god with UNLIMITED POWER! (w/ Dr. Eggman's help). If you do not care, then read the comic.
Because dark sonic killed a god with if infinite power and had help but half of infinty is still infintyV 1 Comment
Vector is the strongest character MAN what
He isn't THE strongest but should at least be 5 becase he is fused with the chaos emeralds the 5 who are stronger are super and hyper sonic and shadow
Why the hell is Chris here?! Get him off! He is just a human, no super power unlike others like Blaze.
Cream can kill emerl, the ultimate fighting machine
For those who is saying cream is weak: play sonic advance 2 and 3 to see how broken she is - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
Cream is the strongest character in Sonic Games according to gameplay. She can cheese all of the bosses in Sonic Advance(I hate myself).V 5 Comments
Laugh out loud! PP is the best char! He is like 100000 times cooler than that dumbass shadow!
Because he'd kick all their asses.
More like Professor steal your girlV 1 Comment
Should be 3-4 ( the two shadic super forms are stronger)V 1 Comment
Infinite is the most powerful Character in the game! he's more powerful than silver!
This is a joke, right?
Chris is kinda cranky due to why he wouldn't fight back.
Chris couldent even beat a snai
