Top 10 Reasons Why Sonic X Is Awful

This cartoon... it is even worse than Dora the Explorer, Sonic Underground and all other cartoons. It was a very big disgrace to the whole Sonic franchise. Why is it even named Sonic X anyways? It's the top 1 worst cartoon since release.

P.S. This is not a reference to the Japanese version, which is an okay show despite horrible stereotypes.

The Top Ten Reasons Why Sonic X Is Awful

1 The 4Kidz voice acting

Some voices are tolerable, some aren't. - Gametoon

Horrible just horrible... - Votebotingsucks

I Mean:Just Forget What I Said About Sonic X in General

Sonic the Hedgehog sounds like a male version of Princess Daisy of Sarasa Land, Miles "Tails" Prower sounds like a girl, Amy Rose has a high, over-aggressive voice, Knuckles the Echidna sounds like Raphael from TMNT, Rouge the Bat sounds like a pedophile with a southern accent, Chris Thorndyke always whines for Sonic the Hedgehog, Cream the Rabbit has a voice that is similar to Princess Peach's voice, etc... It's all so annoying and miscast! And the announcers on which episode is next in the outro and etc... The Japanese voice acting is decent in Sonic X.

Amy's voice is the only one I can tolerate, the rest are annoying, especially Cream's... unfortunately this does not save Amy from her jerkass attitude. - KennyRulz244444

2 The 4Kidz intro & outro songs

Japanese and American ones are good, European version sucks. - Gametoon

The background music sounds like crap, but the intro and outro sounds great. Same with 4Kids. Speaking of 4Kids, why is it that the theme songs for the dubbed anime’s sound awesome, but the background music during episodes are just bad in my opinion?

Gotta go fast (2x),
Gotta go faster, faster, faster, faster faster,
Sonic X!

Why does this song even exist?! It sounds like bull! I hate whoever sang this song! Go listen to the Japanese version of this song.

Eh you get use to the intro after a while - Firegirl110

3 All the characters and locations of this show

The locations aren't bad, and the only character I find annoying is Chris. - Gametoon

Amy Rose is so miscast, just by getting angry almost every time even if it is not necessary (I wish I had a Piko-Piko Hammer so I could bash her to bits with all my rage)... and Scratchpad is making things worse by saying 'Peach as Amy". What the hell?! Imagine Princess Peach in sonic X. Luigi was in Sonic X for real. Amy Rose would bash Super Luigi with a Piko Piko Hammer. Also, Scratchpad said "Luigi as Knuckles". Scratchpad, you are so dishonest. And this has to take place in Vancouver, British Columbia. And don't get me started on this show's humans, especially Chris Thorndyke! He is even more annoying than Amy Rose.

I hated the original sonic x characters aside form decoy, bocoe, bokkun and the metered and I hoped that I just used the correct spellings for their names! - HeavyDonkeyKong

4 Amy Rose ruined it

I don't really agree in fact they got Amy better in this show than any of the games - Gh_player

They made her character into an obsessive baby freak. No wonder Sonic can't stand being near her.

Amy Rose deserves to be murdered (big time) for accusing a much better, more skillful character for doing what she forced him to do. I can't believe this is why Amy Rose is one of the higher-rated Sonic characters.

She ruins a lot of things. - HeavyDonkeyKong

5 Chris Thorndyke Chris Thorndyke is a fictional character and the main human protagonist of the Anime series based on the Sonic the Hedgehog series created by Sega, Sonic X.

I literally see nothing wrong with this character. He may have had a few moments where he deeply treasures the bonds he has with his his friends like Sonic a little too much, and it will give him somewhat of a selfish or reckless streak in order to preserve those bonds, but he's not really that bad. - Jeff35122

Chris is the worst human character of this show. - ZettaGirl23

Chris Thorndyke sucks

Bad in the first two seasons. Matured in season 3

6 The 4Kidz episodes all suck

It has some bad episodes, but also some good ones. - Gametoon

There's nothing decent about this show. Also, all the Sonic animals that are older than Chris Thorndyke shall be taller than him.

It should just be called Chris X because it sure as hell ain't about the hedgehog.

I loved The Cosomo Conspiracy. They have some good episode sin my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

7 How Shadow is portrayed

Shadow's still good. - Gametoon

Yeah! And his voice. He doesn't sound ANYTHING like actual Shadow. His voice is just... generic.

Thank you! Someone else who dislikes how Shadow was portrayed in Sonic X. They missed the mark with him. He was totally out of character. And don't get me started on the Molly episode. Everything about it was just wrong! Another, even more unnecessary Maria clone. Man, I hated that episode.

If you think Shadow wasn't portrayed correctly in Sonic X, then you should see how badly Shadow is portrayed in Sonic Boom. - Jeff35122

8 It's Modern Sonic, not Classic Sonic

I really don't care about that. At least it's not sonic boom, right? Seriously, those two games are my two least favorite sonic the hedgehog games of all time! - HeavyDonkeyKong

All mainstream Classic Sonic games get a 9.0 at the lowest and 9.5 at the highest. Most spin-off Classic Sonic games gets 6.0-8.5 score, however. Dreamcast Sonic games get a 2.0 score.

Modern Sonic is better than Classic Sonic. - Jeff35122

A Classic fan added this

9 All the characters' relationships with each other.

What's wrong with relationships? - Gametoon

Sonic X portrays Sonic to be very stupid - even more ignorant than Amy Rose AND Knuckles the Echidna. This is Sonic the Hedgehog's worst moment besides the Sonic X education game and Sonic X Archie Comics. Pac-Man should be on archie Comics, not Sonic the Hedgehog! And why are there no Archie Nintendo comics? It's because Nintendo said no to Archie Comics! SERIOUSLY?! Princess Daisy of Sarasa Land and Rosalina who have great designs would have awesome Archie Comics series! So would Pac-Man! Not Sonic the Hedgehog, nor Mega Man! What the hell?! Classic Sonic Archie Comics were decent, though. But oh no, Archie Comics is sold everywhere in Canada, and don't get me started on Betty & Veronica! They do not even need to exist!

This version is more align with Sonic's video game personality. The Sonic Boom Sonic is the true moron. - Jeff35122

Sonic has a more horrible relationship with other characters in Sonic Boom.

I hate chris thorndyke. - HeavyDonkeyKong

10 It's boring

Not really, in my opinion. - Gametoon

They completely trashed the sonic adventure stories and sonic adventure 2 stories by forcing Christopher thorndyke into the plots of both of them and having him steal the other characters accomplishments that they accomplished and achieved and accomplished in the sonic adventure series games sonic adventure and sonic adventuren2! - HeavyDonkeyKong

They were improvements. Especially making Chris convince Shadow to save the planet instead of Amy. - Jeff35122

It's actually very heartwarming and exciting often. Sonic Boom is the boring one. - Jeff35122

The Contenders

11 Extremely overrated

This show got an extremely average response from the whole population overall. I do not see anything decent about this show except for the original Japanese/French version of Sonic X.

Actually a lot of people actually seem to actually dislike the show. I would personally gibe this show a mixed review. - HeavyDonkeyKong

This show is not overrated. The Sonic cartoon that is truly overrated is Sonic Boom. - Jeff35122

Sonic Boom is worse!

12 How it completely differs from the older Sonic cartoons

" So it mostly talks about Ships, Sad theories, Their VOICES are awful, and Why is it even Called Sonic X If they're gonna add ships Or new characters like Cosmo the stupidhead. And how is it Sonic if there are humans in the show that take it over. Man, that show was a waste of time and I hope the people who made it Will Regret their life.

13 Sonic is lazy all the time

I wish he would act lazy very time he seems Sam Speed or should I say Sam Slug.

You mean the same fast free-roaming hedgehog that always manages to terminate any threat to the world or his friends? - Jeff35122

14 Amy Rose accused Sonic the Hedgehog for winning her heart, which she forced him to do
15 Sonic is hardly in it even though he's the main leading protagonist, and the show is named after him.

Chris gets the most screen time, which after the first episode he just uses for whining. Might as well be called Chris X.

That's an exaggeration. Sonic actually is in this show, there have just been episodes where he doesn't get much screen time because he is usually too busy following his free-roaming nature, or taking it easy until there is a huge threat that comes along. - Jeff35122

16 It's 2D, not 3D!

Do we really need the exclamation point? Its anime, anime is handdrawn. This is like sOng that all anime and other kinds of cartoons suck. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Were they decided to produce a 3D anime? This don't exist!

I think it would look pretty bad if it was 3D back in 2004

17 Horrible stereotypes

Like the fat cop police man. - HeavyDonkeyKong

18 Sonic X Archie Comics

Go check out the list "Top 10 Reasons to Hate Archie Comics", HeavyDonkeyKong. Josie & the Pussycats are the worst comic strips ever, and got even worse when it went to manga style!

You respect many opinions, Heavy.

You really seem to hate this Archie comics thingy... - HeavyDonkeyKong

19 The 4Kidz Dub

Didn't tails tell Cosmo that he loves her int he orogonal Japanese version? Why did the English version edit that out? And/or replace that? Out? What is up with that? - HeavyDonkeyKong

I obviously put this on the list. Technically, I find sonic X to be hateable. At the same time, I want to expose my strong opinion towards Sonci X.

20 Barely any decent quote in the English dub

I don't hate sonic x, but I don't like it either more do I love it in my opinion! Sonic x is okay on my opinion! Positive stuff include some interesting stories and music but negative stuff includes Chris thorndyke Amy rose and how sonic and shadow are usually the only ones who accomplish anything and when they get help they stillbget all of the credit! - HeavyDonkeyKong

UMMM "ARE YOU CRAZY" is a really good line.

21 They treat Knuckles and Rouge as a couple rather than rivals

At least they didn't get married, thankfully.

Knuckles is Rouge's arch-rival, not Amy Rose! Gand, this is why Sonic Battle is even worse than Superman 64!

Ray William Johnson as Knuckles
Tina Fey (in Russian accent) as Rouge

Cool Maker Studios cast, eh, HeavyDonkeyKong?

22 The addition of Cosmo

Cosmo is the best character

This is a terrible character. I was glad when Tails killed her.

23 It's graphics

Well, this is anime, and the animation is actually okay in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

24 Overdosing on pathetic, teen-themed heavy metal music
25 Sonic is scared of water and eats cat food but he's a hedgehog

He only tried cat food once, and he hated it. And you don't need to be a cat in order to have aquaphobia. - Jeff35122

26 Nobody Likes Big the Cat but He is Here Anyway

Big is a great meme and I love it

27 Knuckles being the butt of the jokes.

Knuckles disagrees with the group on something dangerous or risky, they taunt him, force him into agreeing, and then it's all sunshine and rainbows... not even funny. - KennyRulz244444

28 Knuckles is very gullible

He gets tricked by Eggman at least twice every season
