Most Overrated Sonic Characters

The Top Ten
1 Miles "Tails" Prower 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.

Tails sucks. He is a complete coward, always has to rely on Sonic for everything, is the weakest of the main Sonic characters, and never uses his IQ for battling! This is why.

I don't know what your taking about. He's usally overlooked or hated for being 'useless'

Tails is not useless at all.

2 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.

She barely has any personality other than having a crush on Sonic and loving the world or whatever she talked about in Sonic Frontiers. She used to have a lot more personality. She used to be energetic, kind, optimistic, stubborn, impulsive and sometimes a little bit of a hothead. She had a lot of good and some bad traits. Now she is boring. And people still love her and she is like the second main character at this point but I feel like it isn't deserved. The fans just like her because of sonamy at this point.

3 Silver the Hedgehog

I would say that Silver is underrated, but he is getting much more fans. I would prefer Classic Silver. Also, couldn't Bowser be Silver's main rival in Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games (for now)?

Whiny stupid brat who think he knows best and tries to get people to do what he wants. He's only like for his stupid powers & because he's from the future. He needed that kick in the face.

He is underrated cause of a game he was in I think he was a boss or something but His gameplay was sorta bad and he got hated not even Eggman accomplished that ( maybe)

4 Infinite the Jackal

He was not a good villain. He was constantly whining about Shadow calling him weak and all his strength and abilities only came from the phantom ruby. There are so many villains that were miles better than him!

5 Sticks the Badger

She is so annoying. Does anyone actually like her? I think Sonic boom would habe been better without her.

6 Maria Robotnik

Look she is a cute kid but she really shouldn't be brought up anytime Dhadow does something good. He shouldn't just be a hero for Maria but because he wants to. Maria should stay in the past.

7 Big the Cat

Any other team from Sonic Heroes is reasonably a lot better than Team Rose. I know I should have put Cream the Rabbit on the list.

8 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.

Good for a main character. It makes me cringe that Nintendo is too scared to give pkmn pro tags, Mario, link, etc... No personality what so ever.

Beyond that, for a hero protagonist... He's pretty unique. Kinda snidy, a little rude, likes to joke, but is adventitious and heroic. Overrated? I don't know. If he is liked by lots, I can see the reason at least. Unlike shadow. Or rouge. Or silver.

Sonic the Hedgehog was ranked as top 1 on most popular Sonic characters by far.

Seriously, is he that good? NO!

Classic Sonic was fine, but all his games were great!

Modern Sonic was awful, and I hate his voice & appearance so much!

Sonic Boom Sonic is inspiring & hilarious.

What? A main character that talks, is a hero whose snarky, not interested in getting with some girl, main thing is speed not strenth/courage/weapons/magic/etc... a bit cooky, funny... no he's not my favorite sonic character and he's the main character, so he's going to be overrated, but still he's not bad.

9 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.

He is ranked as top 2 best liked Sonic character, solely behind the super overrated Sonic the Hedgehog. I do not think he is all that great (he got worse when he got his own game), but I still like Shadow the Hedgehog fine. Keep note to self, that critics gave Shadow the Hedgehog mixed to positive reception in general. At least Shadow the Hedgehog is way better than Sonic. I liked Shadow best in Sonic Boom series where he is actually tall & lankly.

He's really awesome in pretty much every game before Sonic Boom. He used to be an amazing swag guy who literally was super strong. Now all he does is stalk Sonic telling him "you're weak because of your pathetic loyalty to your friends." Thanks Shadow. Just because you don't have friends doesn't mean you attack people because they do.

10 Cream the Rabbit

Tails and Sonic Pals has made Cream really unlikable for my liking and to be honest I can happy say, that I hate her.
Taiream is a good ship yes, but her character was completely ruined by pure stupidity and to tell the truth, I would rather see her as Tails' girlfriend then anything else.
Taiream for the win and Taiream forever unless we're talking about Taismo which is literally my OTP.
Yeah, I'm beginning to question Cream's relationship with Tails as a friend, but Taiream is still my number one favourite ship to ever exist.
- Adam C. Evers

Cream is very overrated like Amy, also Sonamy and Tailream are overrated, Tailsmo and Sonally are better, Amy can be with Silver (for therapy) and Cream can be with Charmy. I do ship Shadamy too but honestly I see Shadow to be with Knuckles.

Tailream is a very overrated couple like SonAmy (before the Sonic Boom era). Knuckles is a MUCH better girlfriend for Cream the Rabbit (as an adult).

The Contenders
11 Surge the Tenrec

She just feels like Scourge 2.0 but not as good. Maybe instead of giving Sonic more and more rivals and enemies, focus on the one's he already has that barely get any screentime like Shadow and Metal Sonic.

12 Tangle the Lemur

I'm kind of sick of the IDW original characters getting so much more screentime than tha characters that have been there for 20 or more years, like Shadow, Silver, Knuckles and Blaze. She isn't a bad character but she is overrated and shouldn't appear more than the game characters.

13 Princess Elise III Princess Elise the Third (ソレアナ公女エリス3世, Soreana Kōjo Erisu 3-sei, literally "Soleanna Princess Elise the Third") is one of the main characters in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006).

Elise definitely should go straight to the top I cannot believe she is not higher up.

... I don't think anyone really likes her (including me. She sucks). So she's far from 'overrated'

14 Whisper the Wolf
15 E-123 Omega
16 Mina Mongoose

Damn straight!

17 Marine the Raccoon

I feel so bad for Blaze the Cat for being pressured to befriend a Mary Sue like Marine.

18 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.

I believe that Knuckles the Echidna (and the other members of Team Sonic because of Team Rose's members excluding the underrated Vector) is a very underappreciated because he doesn't rely on anything, is very determined/tough, is rarely annoying, is such a powerful puncher and has complex character design.

Eh, saga making him stupid I think has made his popularity drop.

But yea, people only seem to like him because his abilities in the older games

This guy is so overrated

19 Sally Acorn Sally Acorn is a Mobian chipmunk, the daughter of King Nigel Acorn, and the leader of the Freedom Fighters. She is also the heroine of the SatAM television series... read more

She not even that good of a character. She even slapped Sonic in public because he wanted to save mobius rather than being with her. Seriously Sally is selfish.

Yes Yes YES THANK YOU She deserves to be on this list So many people praise her like she's a god! WELL GUESS WHAT SHES NOT! She crushes dreams and steals friends or crushes away from sonic and his pals. DIE SALLY SONIC SHOULD KILL YOU YOU EVIL DEMON!

When I put Sally Acorn on the list, I put her as Modern Sally Acorn because of how cruel and dainty she is portrayed to be. I wish I could put The Deadly Six and Vanilla the Rabbit on the list.

20 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, he becomes the Metal Overlord. But he becomes an advanced phase of himself before becoming the Metal... read more

He's a robot Sonic. That's about the gist of it. Up to #1, please.

His boss battles suck.

21 Chaotix
22 Lanolin the Sheep
23 Chao

The Chao... one of the most overrated characters ever!

Seriously, just because Chaos are completely cute does not mean they are the best. Besides, Chao Garden in Sonic Adventure 1 than Sonic Adventure 2 is way better.

24 Kitsunami the Fennec
25 E-102 Gamma

Agree. They treat gamma like god. But I'm sorry but He's overrated because of god stuff on him it's worth it

I actually don't care for E-102 Gamma
