Top Ten Reasons That Sonic the Hedgehog Is Not As Great As He Seems


The Top Ten

1 He Is Actually Not That Fast

They don't want to make the gameplay too challenging for kids, but I think they should just work on the gameplay mechanics and graphics a little bit. Not very hard to do something simple like a faint blur around the edges of the screen when running, or faster acceleration from a stop, or something to make te gameplay at least SEEM faster.

I've heard of a theory on YouTube that he is NOT that fast as his name would spell it. The game makers only made it look like its fast since little kids don't recognize it. So, that means, Mario may have a chance to outrun sonic? Sounds legit and weird at the same time...

Maybe he's going slower on purpose.
He cares about nature and innocents, so if he went at his top speed all the time, he could cause damage

My theory on Sonic.

In Sonic Unleashed, the numbers you see at the checkpoints are correct, although SEGA didn't want the game to be TOO challenging.

M&S Olympic Games are a COMPLETLY DIFFERENT STORY. I think the shoes Sonic is wearing are kind of like the slow-down shoes in Sonic Labyrinth, so the other competitors ACTUALLY HAVE A CHANCE.

2 If He Had No Friends He Would Be Dead

Tails and Shadow. I think that they'd saved his butt tons of times! Hpowver, a lot of Video game characters would probably bne dead without friends! Mario would probably be dead without Yoshi! Who has helped him out plenty of times! - HeavyDonkeyKong

3 His Speed and Agility Are His Only Weapons Regularly

I agree on this. - nintendofan126

4 Knuckles Almost Killed Him

Well, Knuckles seems pretty tough so... - HeavyDonkeyKong

Not "killed." More like "knocked out of super form and robbed."

5 He Almost Died In a Volcano But Metall Sonic Saved Him
6 He Never Gets a Sword or a Weapon and When He Does He Is Like "Cool" and Doesn't Care
7 Can He Build TH Tornado from Scratch Like Tails Did!? Nooo!

That means he's bad because he can't build machines? What an amazing reason...

8 He Kisses a Girl, Turns Around and Kisses Another One, Gets Married to Another Girl.

HE GOT MARRIED?!? WHEN?!? - HeavyDonkeyKong


9 He Is Weak and He Has a Way to Big Sense of Humor

Weak? What kind of crap is that?

10 His Voice


The Contenders

11 His Modern Sonic Design

Why did Sega made his eyes green anyway?

12 He's 15 Years Old In Age

Sonic should be in his 30s now! And thus he is!

13 He's immature
14 His Quills
15 He Is Skinny

What's wrong with that?

16 He Is On Archie Comics Instead of Mario & Pac-Man
17 He Bickers With Mega Man Every Time the Two Are Together
18 His Best Friend Is Tails

How is this bad? Tails is my favorite character! - RiverClanRocks

What's wrong with that? Tails is swag.

I honestly love Tails! Til s isy favorite Sonic the Hedgehog character of all time! - HeavyDonkeyKong
