Top Ten Fastest Sonic the Hedgehog Characters

The Top Ten
1 Sonic 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.

Well he is stated to be the fastest thing alive and although there are others who can contend I believe he is the fastest. He moved fast enough to switch dimensional planes and stop time before not even mentioning his speed after his various transformations.

Besides that I just love him overall.

Sonic has spd measurements in sonic unleashed wit his highest being 3519 spd (or 6,051,022,551 mph) which is over 9 times faster than light, but even this isn't nearly as good as running through time to fix space in sonic generations.

2 Shadow 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.

I believe that Shadow is the fastest character because if you look at his ankles he has the same rings that he has on his wrists, 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. if this is correct just think of how fast he really is. I believe he doesn't expose his true power because he does not want be seen as a threat to humanity.

Shadow is not faster then sonic but he is bad ass he can catch up with sonic. But some people say that he is Sonics arch rival he's good Dr German is Sonics rival.

3 Tails Miles "Tails" Prower is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series, and the title character's best friend and sidekick.

I've heard that Tails can outrun the ultimate life form when he isn't using his chaos powers which means that Tails actually beat him in a race meaning that Tails isn't only the fastest between him and Shadow, but, is also the most powerful/smartest Mobian on mobius seeing that both Turbo Tails and Titan Tails/Thanos Tails exist and Super Tails has the power to turn others super, brainy and powerful... good cool SEGA, good cool.

Also Tails can use chaos powers as well so... he is not just faster than Shadow but... stronger than him as well seeing that his linked to the chaos force.

The Mobians should fear the power he wields, heck, he should be Shadow's worst nightmare seeing that his afraid of heights and Tails can lift both Sonic and Knuckles at the same time, fear him.

Fear the name Miles "Tails" Prower, Shadow.

All he needs to do is left both Omega and Big and he'll truly be a Mobian to fear.

4 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,... read more

Metal Sonic is actually faster than Sonic, just play Sonic CD and Sonic Adventure 2 in multiplayer mode. Sonic is the fastest thing alive, but Metal Sonic isn't alive.

Can sometimes move faster than Sonic.

Made to match Sonic in speed so..

5 Knuckles 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.
6 Blaze

Yeah, I'll have to put Blaze as the fastest after Sonic and Shadow.

7 Silver

Silver is the best I mean he is soo fast while flying and also his telekinesis powers are awesome I sometime wonder silver tearing sonic in to 2 pieces with his telekinesis powers silver is awesome!

Faster than Shadow. Shadow cheats by using jet boots and Silver doesn't. Silver is almost as fast as Sonic.

Silver isn't a fast runner but with his telekinesis he is quite speedy but sonic generations 3DS shows he can run quickly I do t think that's a bad thing because silver is my favourite sonic character.

8 Dark Sonic Dark Sonic is a dark super transformation achieved by Sonic the Hedgehog in the anime series Sonic X. The multitude of fake Chaos Emeralds and Sonic's intense anger allowed him to achieve this transformation.

Just sonic who's really fast after a transformation so has to be fast.

9 Super Sonic

If Super Silver were in this I would rate him first but he isn't so I won't. Sonic is known to be the fastest hedgehog so imagine that times a million.

Does he count as a different character then sonic?

10 Infinite

Tails: "Whoa! That guy's faster than Sonic!

Why?faster then Sonic he teleports and he only is faster in the trailer! Sonic is faster in the batlle so come on guys!

The Contenders
11 Egg Man Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik is a fictional video game character and the main antagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, created by Sega.

Well classic sonic is slower than modern sonic and classic eggman is skinnier than modern egg man. So egg man is faster than sonic on sonic 1and sonic 2 and sonic 3

Sonic can't catch him. It was an old game, one of the first, but I forget what it's called. He can outrun Sonic, what more is there to say

Have you seen the man run, faster than Sonic the Hedgehog! Sonic is not the fastest thing alive, Dr. Eggman is... #FaceTheFactsKids

12 Mephiles
13 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.

Amy is fast too. He always chase sonic and I don't think if her golden ring in her wrist makes her faster. And don't call her slow and no personality.

Always one step behind sonic and tails.

She is slow and has no personality.

14 Seelkadoom

In Sonic RPG Episode 8, when Super Sonic was using Light Speed Attack to catch Shadow, Seelkadoom caught up to Sonic with barely any effort. He even said "It seems that light speed just isn't enough! "

This is a fan character; please learn to distinguish from filthy OCs and official characters!

How is seelkadoom faster than sonic he literally is the fastest thing alive sonic is probably way faster than seelkadoom

15 Scourge
16 Jet the Hawk Jet the Hawk is a character from SEGA's Sonic the Hedgehog series. Jet is very arrogant, prideful, and always seeks riches and fortunes. While also the Babylon Rogues' leader, Jet rarely takes his responsibilities seriously, though he knows how to assert his authority.
17 Espio 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,... read more

Actually, I looked it up and apparently Espio is the fastest Sonic The Hedgehog character, so there you go!

Who has ever heard of a slow ninja. I get that he is a chameleon, but Sonic Silver and Shadow are hedgehogs and they r slow in real life. Anyways, Espio is the cool type and actually my second favorite character. So I rate him fifth fastest

18 Ultra Sonic
19 Cream the Rabbit

Cream is a beautiful rabbit. She reminds me of a rabbit of which I once loved. Let me tell you the story.
Once upon a time, I found a rabbit on the side of the road. She was a creamish/orange color. I took her in naturally, and we became the best of friends. One day, she ran away. I was distraught, depressed, and lost all will to live. But suddenly, a new challenger appeared! It was none other than Sonic himself. The blue bastard showed up at my doorway, holding my little bunny baby pal. I was so happy, that I jazzed everywhere. Sonic left in a flash, but right then, the bunny came to life. She spoke to me, stating her name was in fact Cream the Rabbit.
"I have many things to accomplish, and many places to be. I'm sorry I can not stay here, but I will return. And when I do, I will be the fastest Sonic character."

20 Nazo
21 Shadic the Hedgehog
22 Rouge the Bat
23 Solaris

This guy's consciousness is in every possible timeline of every possible reality at the same time, so, by default, he is without a doubt the fastest character.

24 Manic the Hedgehog
25 Charmy Bee
