Top 10 Most Powerful Sonic Characters
The Top Ten
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!
He's an incredibly powerful* character who can match Sonic, Knuckles and Silver, 3 almost equally strong fighters. Shadow has a disadvantage and advantage over all of them. He's, by a margin, slower than Sonic, but quite stronger and more powerful. For Knuckles, he's a margin weaker, but quite faster. Finally, for Silver, he's less powerful (I believe, but only by a nigh unnoticeable difference) but stronger and faster.
*my preferred difference, for those who believe being strong and powerful are the same thing, I prefer my definition of strong being physical strength, and powerful meaning energy techniques' (Chaos Attacks) strength. Meaning Sonic's Sonic Wind projectile can't match up to Shadow's multitude of Chaos abilities.
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.
I believe that Shadow is the most powerful character because if you look at his ankles and wrists he wears a set of rings, These rings limit his power. When Shadow takes the rings off his wrists he gets a power up in strength, speed, power etc. I think the ones on his ankles do the same thing, except they give him more of his full power of speed. I believe he doesn't expose his true power because he does not want be seen as a threat to humanity. I mean Shadow is the ultimate life form, what more is there to say.
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
Or you can even break the game and make it from the start to EVEN THE PAST of the finish goal ring within less than seconds. If you don't know, if you go too far off at the point where you break the map, the disc can actually crack.
Yep, break the game with daytime Sonic and you got yourself Archie Sonic breaking your disc for some reason.
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
I believe that Sonic it is 2 times faster than Shadow and 2 times stronger
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.
If sonic and shadow vs knuckles knuckles would win.1knuckles 2blaze3silver
Knuckles and blaze make a ultimate pair silver is cute, funny and brave but nux beats all.
So vote knuckles, blaze or silver (mostly knuckles)
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 not weak people he can defiy the laws of physics he might even be able to shed mario with his tails
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.
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 was able to combat and almost kill Sonic, who is obviously extremely powerful (Main character, duh). He was only stopped by Amy, who he was "friends" with, this allowed Sonic to escape. Silver has a huge psychological factor over the other characters, he witnesses his best friend Blaze die (Or disappear to an alternate dimension, but he didn't know that) and still keeps his cool and effectively combats Iblis. Anyway, back to his fight with Sonic, he can use his powers to grab Sonic even when he was trying to run, showing that he can think just as fast as the blue blur can run. He is very durable as he can take a pounding by the Ultimate Lifeform and still fight on. Another ability he has is that he can use his powers to generate an aura shield around his body to protect him from damage. I think that Silver is the most powerful despite being limited to form changes, and I believe he deserves to be in more Sonic games and maybe his own game.
The power of darkness that can come in handy, if he can kill Sonic in one blow just think he could rule the world
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
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 was going to click on Shadow, but Mephiles has all of Shadow's powers, plus intelligence, manipulation, and duplication.
Make no mistake, people reading this: THIS is number 1. Regular Shadow, Sonic, and Knuckles get absolutely CURBSTOMPED by this absolute unit. It took 3 Super States to defeat him, and even then he didn't get destroyed. He's so powerful that he didn't even get killed in direct combat; Sonic had to travel back in time to put out the original flame, his weakest state. This ABSOLUTE UNIT can rip apart entire timelines and distort space itself. Seriously, no one even comes close to this guy.
There are ten people ranked above Solaris right now. This is not good. First of all, it took Super Shadow, Super Sonic, and Super Silver's combined efforts to defeat Solaris, which means logically none of them could win in a 1v1. Since Blaze is an alternate Sonic, and Metal Sonic has been defeated by Sonic on multiple occasions, Solaris is stronger than both of them. The fact that Tails and Knuckles have been ranked higher than Solaris is insulting, mainly because we all know they are weaker than Sonic as well. Mephiles is most certainly a strong villain, but Solaris is the combined form of Mephiles and Iblis, so obviously Solaris is stronger. Nazo should not be on the list, as he is not canon, but I can probably assume that Nazo cannot destroy timelines, so he is weaker.
Solaris is number one.
Truth is: Solaris is the most powerful entity we've seen yet. He's capable of tearing apart time itself. The Egg Salamander can harm a Super Form with a special attack while Solaris can do so with his run-of-the-mill attacks!
So cool, he is a villain, we love it
He can just copy moves from other people so he's eggman's best robot
With his ability to copy skills other charters have it makes him incredibly dangerous. Also fighting him one on one is suicide unless you are a main character.
Also the fact that in his Metal Overlord form he needed 3 chaos wielding mobains to dent him proves that he is powerful.
Anyone to play a game with Metal would find that Metal outmatches every character. The only one to truly surpass Metal is Sonic, but that is simply due to Sonic's main character status.
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
She'd be powerful with a Russian accent & a pear figure!
Power of the tits
She is a bad girl in some games
Should be number 1 I love Rouge!
He is not canon that's the problem. I wish sega could make Sonic: Nazo unleashed canon :/
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
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's a frog, he's just kidding and gets lazy all the time
Froggy can defeat dark gaia only by staring at him, he's the most powerful character ever, not even super sonic can defeat him
Nah, Froggy would come second to Big the Cat
Eggman on the list twice
He's strong but not always
Okay... This seems odd. Super Sonic is the 2nd Strongest hedgehog canonically...
How is Tails And Knuckles above him? It's Super Sonic, not a weaker Sonic.
Sonic himself is higher on the list than Super Sonic. WHY?!
Super Sonic is powerful not the best
Let the flames out! BURN IT ALL TO THE GROUND! Just don't mess with chaos Blaze he's water
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.
Blaze, Silver and Shadow all do hold physical abilities which can cause quite dangerous activity.
Many Sonic based characters can do so.
She's awesome and she's one of the most powerful female character
Super Shadow is below Super Sonic?
Uh, no Sonic might be my fave, but Shadow, no SUPER Shadow is notably stronger and much more powerful than Super Sonic.
Super Sonic is faster however.
To think this isn't even his full power, he could take those rings off as he's in his Super from and just think of all the damage
How come Shadow is in first, and Super Shadow is in ninth? I mean, Super Shadow is Shadow but stronger!
Shadow is strong enough with one chaos emerald so when you give him all seven and a super form he becomes SUPER powerful
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
Amy is cool that hammer of hers is so powerful and she fights with weights which are those rings on her hand
He's not even canon so stop putting fanmade characters on this list.
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.
Rouge is a good team-mate
Big the cat is a heavy domestic cat, he likes to fish and is friends with froggy
Just imagine it... Super Big the Cat
He can jump and flatten his foes
He climb fast. He flatten foes.
Resides inside the master emerald (I think) so it should be pretty damn powerful
If Sonic hates water couldn't Chaos just drown him?!? 🤔 Something to think about
Chaos is the best.
It is the best. it is slow but this is dangerous
Ok who put black doom on the list
Mind Tricks that can come in handy, if he can make things come to reality he could drown both Sonics kill, the OC and so much more
Infinite is powered by the phantom ruby which has the power to neutralise the chaos emeralds like in sonic mania the final boss where after defeating the phantom king the phantom ruby separates the chaos emerald from classic sonic also sonic was at his mercy 2 times in a row unlike mephiles who killed sonic by surprise and he was only defeated because the phantom rubies powers where drained
In sonic forces he easily defeated silver, trapped shadow in an illusion of green hill zone,helped eggman take over 99% of the world,defeated sonic twice and captured him. Compared to villians like solaris which took 3 super forms to defeat but what powered the super forms? The chaos emeralds,and the phantom ruby can neutralise the chaos emeralds like in sonic mania, also compared to mephiles who killed sonic with a surprise attack but infinite defeated sonic in a true fight and compared to metal sonic who has been defeated countless times by sonic infinite is more powerful and also he was defeated because the phantom rubies powers where drained
He should be number 5 because he is super edgy and total Bad ass kinda I mean have you seen him without his mask?
Nazo can recover when he wants! If he can knock out Sonic, Shadow, and Knuckles, and kill Tails (never mind Tails is weak but smart) he could just kill the hole world
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.
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!
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
Cream is not only more powerful than eggman and chris
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!
It is shadow and sonic combined so it is the strongest of all strongest
Shadic is the most powerful life form
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
Seelkadoom isn't an official character though...
While perhaps not the most powerful thing in the Sonic Universe, he is probably the most powerful character.
Can kill anything with a hyper dash.
Hyper sonic is below the shadic forms and shadic also one below hyper shadow
How is he not Number 1? He's literally the most powerful.
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
This is a joke, right?
Chris is kinda cranky due to why he wouldn't fight back.
SHADOW PLEASE DON'T gee gosh this guy is annoying
Chris couldent even beat a snai
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
Stronger than Knuckles.
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
He can just stab anyone if they do not see him
He is very cool
Espio's exploding shrunkens and martial arts make him by far the strongest character
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 infinty
Dark Sonic has beaten MOBIUS 17 which is a GOD WITH INFINITE POWER!
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
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.
Isn't this a god?
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.
Time after time he cracks the world apart! can super sonic do that or super shadow do that!
If you ever played advanced 2 you know cheese is the Chuck Norris of the sonic franchise
Cheese's a cute thing, he is a Chao and learns more things. he has special moves
I agree Cheese could take down all of them at once.
Cheese is amazing! So cute and like a pet to the Sonic gang.
Shadow really loves her until sonic idiot killed her shadow is going to do revenge on the person who killed maria
She doesn't like fighting. That's an official fact.
She is the best
THIS GUY IS WAAYYY MORE STRONGER THAN ANY CHARACTER FROM THE WHOLE SERIES OF SONIC THE HEDGEHOG. unlike metal sonic that supersonic beat, it took sonic's most strongest form hypersonic to beat mecha sonic.
Metal Sonic's speed combined with Silver Sonic's strength + a super form. What more do I need to say?
He is awesome
Should be 3-4 ( the two shadic super forms are stronger)
Shadic can distroy nazo in 45 seconds
The most over powered character in the world, nothing personnel kid
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 girl
Haha nice joke
