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.

Thank you! This is 100% Sonic is by far the fastest thing alive. He is faster than the flash. Some people say Infinite is faster than sonic, but that is a BIG FAST STINKY LIE. Sonic can outrun a blackhole, and he can exceed the speed of light. Another thing is, flash has a speed limit due to the speed force, but sonic doesn't thereby making him the greatest speedster of all time. SONIC 4EVA!

There is really no contest here.
Sonic is 100% the fastest with Shadow at second place and Metal Sonic at third place while Tails and Amy are able to keep up with them despite the series making no sense what so ever - oh and Dark Oak is pretty much Thanos from Marvel, his really that powerful.
Sonic is faster than The Flash...?

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.

He is the fastest thing alive! And it would make sense for him to be faster then shadow or else shadow would be the fastest thing alive!

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.

He has rings to contain his true power. He could run faster than sonic wig all Chaos emeralds and that is faster than light with taking of all four rings

Shadow is is the second if not the fastest character in Sonic and that's with his rings, and by the way as far as I know he has only taken off TWO rings at a time so that means that he wants to take out a massive Army by only taking off only two rings so better bet that he is at LEAST as fast as Sonic when he takes off two rings so when he takes off four...

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.

Tails' casual running speed is the same as Sonic's, though Sonic's top speed is faster. Tails could also outrun Shadow if Shadow wasn't using Chaos powers. He deserves to be #2.

Yes, Sonic is faster than him, but he is faster than Knuckles. Therefore, he flys somewhere between 770 and 400 mph.

also he cute just look at him

He's should be 2 sonic 2 he kept up with sonic who cares if he has two tails.

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, more.

He literally outspeeds Sonic in every battle against him by pushing his hardware past its limits

Can sometimes move faster than Sonic.

He was the fastest in adventure 2

Made to match Sonic in speed so..

5 Blaze

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

I say blaze is quite fast and somehow equal to Sonic

Blaze is by far the most fastest sonic female

She is a good friend of silver

6 Hyper Sonic

Wow just wow he should be on the top first, hyper sonic can out run dark sonic, well the will get tie and why is shadow on second? shadow isn't fast he just has huv'r boots. I love shadow, he's my favorite but still and infinite is faster than sonic in sonic forces u should know that, its like saying pichu is cuter than evee!

He's way faster than Shadow Infinite, and Dark Sonic

NOW that's the fastest version of Sonic

This should be number one

7 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.

I think knuckles is fast

He can fly and climb

I love knuckles

Knuckles is very fast on his foot. he can keep up with sonic. if he glides for long distance he will be faster than sonic speed and tails' flight. he don't use tools to make him fast unlike shadow.

8 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!

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.

But It's not a joke... He can't run too fast, yet he can really move when flying.

This is a joke well silver uses his powers on his feet to go faster

9 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.

Dark sonic is the best main character in the world ever lived

He is by far the fastest ever

Evil is so bad

10 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.

This stupid thing should be called super saian sonic

Does he count as a different character then sonic?

is he fast or what

The Contenders
11 Infinite

Oh come in in the trailer he was 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!

Tails: “Whoa! That guy’s faster than Sonic!

Come on, Infinite is only fast because he teleports! 😜

12 Mephiles
13 Doctor Eggman 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

The definite fastest thing alive, Sonic is a snail compared to him.

End of Sonic 2, believe me, sonic can't catch up to him!

Oh... I thought this said "fattest" Sonic characters.

14 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.

Slow I hate her

15 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!

He is stronger and more stealth than sonic or shadow

He is faster than anyone including sonic

16 Scourge

Scorge is fast because he anti sonic


17 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.

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

Play Sonic 2 and by the end of the game, you will see how fast he really is.

He out ran sonic and the end of sonic 2

In the classic games he is even faster then sonic-_- for... Some... Reason

18 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, more.

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

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

Come on he's a ninja there fast

I love him cause he ninja

19 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.

He's only fast when using a hover board

Jet is called jet because he is a jet

greedy I love him just like me

the coolest character

20 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."

She can move faster and she can fly

She is so nice


21 Dark Shadow
