Greatest Playable Characters In Sonic Heroes

Sonic Heroes is an awful game due to the voice acting, how overrated it is, the controls, how Amy Rose & Cream the Rabbit dress, not being a crossover, the awful songs, the horrendous soundtrack, the terrible character designs since Sonic Adventure, the 2D artwork in some of the game's segments, the terrible teams, the horrible bosses and the graphics & even the consoles they are on. This game has never been good. Despite that, though, I have an interest in the playable characters. But which playable characters are the greatest?

The Top Ten

1 Shadow the Hedgehog 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.

Come on people, he is the owner of the team

None of the 3d do IV games are overrated except for perhaps the adventure tames and sonic colors which are my 3 favorite games in the entire franchise but whochni can understand some people calling them overrated because they all get so much love in my opinion! Alto of sonic the hedgehog video game franchise fans hate the crap out of the 3d sonic games and prefer his 22d roots, so there is joshing overrated about sonic hheroesin key opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

2 Miles "Tails" Prower Miles 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.

My favorite character, because it flies for the hell of this world of fantasy

3 Espio the Chameleon 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 is my favourite character and I found out about him from sonic heroes

I had this game for PlayStation 2 and I remember that he was my favorite. He could even become invisible and make the enemies so easy to beat. - tiagocowboy11

4 Cream the Rabbit Cream the Rabbit

Cream should do dynamic acrobatic moves like flipping, spinning, cartwheeling, and more tricks with her agility. She should really do super jumps as high as she wants to and land safely. she has super great flight abilities like Tails and Rouge and move super fast to catch foes off guard and take them down without even breaking a sweat,no problem. put her with Tails and Rouge and all three of them would make a great tag team. Cream has fantastic super powers like other sonic characters imagine what she can do with them in training and practice and use her abilities for variety of heroic purposes so she can improve her skills.

Cream is really super fun as a playable character and she one of the best and greatest next to Tails!

5 Charmy the Bee Charmy the Bee

CHARMY THE BEE? You might as well put Tails, Rouge and Cream up here, because they all play the same as Charmy.

But what do you mean that this game is awful?! "Overrated"? Overrated MY ASS! Tons of people hate this game. Also, the songs are awesome, the bossess are great, and everything you said up there is BULL!

Sorry. I had to let that out. I can respect your opinion, but Charmy shouldn't be #1. Or anyone, because there's only three ways of gameplay...

ПBee bee bee! Charmy the Bee! 🎵 I love this little bee! He's a lot like me. I'm so so so hyper sometimes!

6 Knuckles the Echidna 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.

Seriously, top 15? And Knuckles used to be many places higher on the list! Come on! Knuckles is the greatest playable character in this game tying with Charmy the Bee. He has positive attention, so why is he suddenly in the bottom?!

Knuckles is capable of all srts of stuff. He may be slower than Sonic, but he can punch, glide & is cute!

7 Vector the Crocodile 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.

He was awesome, funny and powerful!

Vector is awesome, especially due to his great power and rivalry with King Bowser Koopa. Other than that, Vector is the greatest Sonic Heroes character ever whose tall height sure can rival Ganondorf.

Just another example of the creator of this list's failure tour expect people's opinions. That's whatbthe comment under the lists title is in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

8 Rouge the Bat Rouge the Bat

Rouge the Bat & Shadow the Hedgehog: Lil' sister and big brother figure.

The highlight of the Sonic franchise. !

9 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.

Why don't you believe that Amy Rose's dress skirt sucks?! I hate it with a burning passion because it sticks out like a tutu which happens to be where Amy Rose's femininely cruel personality came from. (Every member of) Team Sonic, Team Dark and the Chaotix deserves (much) more praise than (the members of) Team Rose get. Why? They are way tougher and more positive. They also have superior character design and more challenge.

Not as fast as the other speed characters which actually made her easier to control! Also had the best tornado attack of the 4.

I like her propeller move.

10 Sonic the Hedgehog 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.

Needs to be #1. Especially in the best Sonic the Hedgehog characters list.

I know, because of his usefulness, cuteness & role as the main star.


The Contenders

11 Big the Cat Big the Cat

I like Big way better in Sonic Heroes than Sonic Adventure. The fishing is so annoying. Froggy. Must save Froggy. DAMN FISHING! I HATE IT!

Way better in Sonic Heroes than Sonic Adventure.

P.S. Sonic Heroes is way better than Sonic Adventure.

12 E-123 Omega E-123 Omega

Broken. - EspioTheChameleon

13 Cheese the Chao
14 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.
15 Dr. Eggman Dr. Eggman Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik is a fictional video game character and the main antagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, created by Sega.

He's an npc but he would have been nice to play as.

16 Blaze the Cat Blaze the Cat

Awesome playable character, especially with her fire abilities
