Top 10 Greatest Sonic the Hedgehog Characters

The Top Ten
1 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.

Who doesn't like Sonic? There's multiple reasons why he's number one in the list, you know!

1. He's the mascot of the franchise and definitely Sega's most iconic character ever!

2. Only one character betters him for me, and even that character he is best friends with and has as his main man! (I'm talking about Tails in case you didn't realize.)

3. He's an absolute lightning hedgehog!

4. His friends. He attracts the likes of Amy Rose and has Tails as his sidekick! That's deluxe living right there, people!

5. He has some quality quotes!

And 6. He's just so happy! He's got such a dimension to his personality that even with his cockiness, he can get serious, but at the same time, he's not too serious to be unlikeable. Sonic will always be one of the best of all time!

Sonic the Hedgehog, one of the best characters along with Silver and Amy, will forever be the greatest video game character ever. He's confident, funny, brave, and positive. Sonic always find the bright side of things. For example, in Sonic Forces, Eggman kept him trapped on the Death Egg for six months and supposedly "tortured" him, but Sonic bounced right back after he was released. He isn't perfect, of course, he can be obnoxious and all that, but he always makes up for it. GO SONIC!

The main man (or hedgehog) himself, Sonic The Hedgehog is one of the best and fastest there is! If you've ever watched the Sonic The Hedgehog movie, then you will know just how much personality and backstory Sonic really has. It was my favourite film and I hope that Sonic stays running for years to come!

Sonic is no doubt the best! I used to not like him. I didn't care about him nor payed any attention until I saw the trailer. It lit up all my insides and now...I'M IN LOVE! (XD) I don't like Shadow so I don't know why people think he's better! He's mean and works for Eggman and killed Sonic (who is a super hero like who kills a hero? A villain duh)! People say Sonic is mean but he's just the introvert and will be there for his friends. He's also Sega's mascot but that's not why I like him. He's also really fast and I mean really fast! He will do literally anything so his friends and doesn't need a girl (and especially not Amy) and is super brave and tough! And sure he's scared of water cause he can't swim but we all have fears! The fact that he can't cry no matter what is really impressive! Bad but impressive. So ya...Sonic is the best not Shadow the faker!

2 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.

Tbh, I like the way he used to be, back in the good old days of Sonic Adventure 2, Heroes, and 06. His personality was less of your stereotypical rival with zero flaws, he was more of an introverted anti-hero, who actually fought for what was right, not just for kicks.
He has a soft spot for Rouge, which is something that hasn't changed. He's willing to put a lot in to save her, and even though he has a huge ego, deep down he does care for humanity.
His abilities are amazing, and I think that it's interesting that he's related to Black Doom. Sega really gave up on his character, though, so now he's just your plain-old side character with zero personality. WE WANT OLD SHADOW BACK!

I wish I could have Sonic 06 Shadow back. He was good in that game. I also like him in Sonic X. Even though he didn't appear until episode 34, disappeared after episode 38, and didn't appear again until episode 60, those moments in episode 38 were his best ones. He chose to help Sonic because he knew that Maria would want that. Shadow and Sonic may be rivals, but they make a pretty good team when they work together.

I really, really rate Shadow like a lot of people do, but the thing that makes me really like him is the fact that he's on neither team. He doesn't work with Eggman, and he pretty much always doesn't work with Sonic. Plus, like Silver, he's a really, really powerful character. He's probably the most powerful character in the franchise even! His abilities truly are something else.

Everyone in this series needs more character development. I'd actually like to see Shadow with more of a weakness. Weakness is what makes characters relatable. Being 'perfect' in every sense of the word is boring. If the character has flaws, major screw ups, that is what ties them to us, bonds them with us. If we are perfect, how will we learn? How will we grow? Right now, Shadow has a lot of cheesy lines that are nauseatingly heroic and he sees through every villains' ruses. Where's the fun in that? Where's the imperfect, human side? Is it hidden below those dark emotions? Is the seriousness a shroud burying a more carefree, happy personality? SEGA, this is stuff that you and your lazy, yeah, I said it, LAZY developers need to elaborate on more. I want to connect with him more. To feel him... but we don't know what he's really like inside. I'd like to see a glimpse, a tiny little slip-up of a more vulnerable, less egotistical, deeply emotional Shadow that lies on the inside.

3 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.

My personal favourite character from the franchise and of all-time, and I know that a lot of people like him a lot as well, in my opinion, Tails's flaws to his personality are nonexistent. Sure, in Sonic Boom, some of his inventions go haywire through Eggman's doing, but he's a mechanic, Sonic's sidekick, a plane pilot and the smartest character out of all of them at just eight years old! Not only that, but he himself is inspiring. I remember writing a fact file about myself and I actually put Tails as one of my inspirations. Tails will always be the best video game character around for me and I hope that you all agree!

The best Sonic character alongside Vanilla and Cream while the fans just like Shadow because his edgy and Sonic because his the poster boy, Tails is my favorite for a reason.
His the smartest Mobian alive with characters such as Perci, Sally, Rotor and Amy coming barely close to out smarting him or as the joke goes... out fox.
Heck, can you imagine him appearing in a few horror themed Sonic stories as a scientist such as a parody of The Twilight Zone.
Heck, Sonic BOOM even had a episode based off of the movie The Fly which would have worked better if his bee-bot transformation was a bit slower like in the remake not the classic version were it was quick... too quick, it needed to be slower than that - the jokes needed to sink in a lot more than the episode let on.
(Also, Sonic runs from Amy because he thinks that his not good enough for her...)

Titan Tails makes me think about Thanos, Turbo Tails makes me think about Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel and Super Tails's power just screams The Birds, don't get me started with Tails Doll.
That doll might be the devil himself for all we know.
Heck, Tails is powerful enough to manipulate the fabric of reality.
The guys just as scary as Jack the ripper as long as your not seeing him in person otherwise his just too lovable and cute to be that dangerous, or is he...

Smart, kind, intelligent, and mature. Tails has been Sonic's best friend and sidekick for years, and it makes sense. He is able to keep up with Sonic wherever he goes and is able to solve almost everything he's given. He isn't brave most of the time, but he's just a little kid, guys, so chill. He isn't useless, either, because of his mad computer skills and all that. Go, Tails!

4 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 think his best moments come from Sonic Forces. He was the leader of The Resistance and he led Sonic and the others to the win. He also made some good appearances in Sonic X, including episode 5 and episode 39. He may be easy to fool (Episode 5 proves that), but he can be pretty reckless when he wants to.

Knuckles forever!
Such a skillful character, being able to glide, climb, punch and roll into a ball and attack opponents. Furthermore, Knuckles has an inspirational background story, turning him into a responsible and dedicated individual. I am so mad that SEGA made him dumb in Sonic Boom, so unfair ! He's actually very smart and wise, just somewhat gullible and innocent, which isn't bad at all. Imagine him with pyrokinesis ability- perfection!

Knuckles has to be the best character going I mean in every game you play as him he has awesome powers, the ability to climb, glide, dig and has great fighting abilities, and you can't miss out the fact he looks so cool. I don't know if uve noticed but the major colours of most of the sonic characters is red and Knuckles is all red and the fact he looks awesome with his long dreadlocks and giant fists that look like boxing gloves but with spikes makes it even more cooler and he has the best looking shoes out of everyone. I mean come on he has mountain shoes with some kind of Lego piece on it that's just amazing. The only thing I'm mostly disappointed in I'd the fact he doesn't turn super in the new games its always Sonic, Shadow or Silver and that's now fair because Knuckles is just good enough to be Super too as he knows more about the Chaos Emeralds than anyone els as he guards the Master Emerald it's his duty to know more.

He's always been my favorite Sonic character. This guy is AWESOME! He stated out as an anti-hero in Sonic 3. One day Super Sonic was just flying around being all cool and stuff and BAM a red echidna named Knuckles hits Super Sonic so hard that it knocks the Chaos Emeralds out of him! Then Knuckles steals all of the emeralds! It's up to Sonic and Tails to get them back! Eventually Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles realize they have one common enemy, Eggman. By this time, Sonic had gotten all of the emeralds back. Now Sonic and Knuckles team up! Sonic actually gives the emeralds to Knuckles so he can start collecting the Super Emeralds! These emeralds are much stronger than the Chaos Emeralds. Then Sonic gets the Super Emeralds and becomes HYPER SONIC! Sonic defeats Eggman and the world is saved! But that is besides the point. Remember the beginning Super Sonic is supposed to be invincible, BUT Knuckles hit Super Sonic SO HARD that it knocks the emeralds out of him! Knuckles is SUPER STRONG! ...more

5 Silver the Hedgehog

Possibly the most underrated and amazing Sonic character in the entire franchise. His kind heart and strong will obviously tie him to Amy and Shadow (I'm sorry, I follow the theory he's descended from them). His unique abilities make him different than the rest, and his current situation makes him even stronger than he already appears. A lot of people hate him for 06, but he's still an amazing character! I think it's about time Silver got his own game and Sega gave him the story he deserved.

Poor Silver. He doesn't get too much respect. His whole wold was destroyed by Iblis and he wanted to stop him. That's why he got manipulated by Mephiles. He wanted to stop whatever caused him to appear. He's pretty much been an orphan his whole life and he just wants to make things right. Plus his powers are awesome.

Let’s take a minute to admire just how strong Silver the Hedgehog is.
Physically: physiological powers=Epic! He’s powers are really neat. Speed is perfect for Sonic and Shadows chaos control is his own thing, but this fits great for Silver. He’s very precise and smart with how he manages his powers, and I think that makes him a very valuable in battle.
Mentally: born in a broken world? Check. Most likely an orphan his whole life? Check. Stayed strong and fought when no one else would? Check. Silver cared deeply about keeping hope alive for the future, and that alone makes him very strong, for being the one person in his future to stand up. To actually put in the effort.

He gets a lot of hate for being amazing.

Silver is a character that I enjoy for numerous reasons. He's fluffy, he's a great color and he possesses psychic powers! He is also one of the most powerful Sonic characters, so you've got to respect him for that, right?

6 Blaze the Cat

It was really close between Blaze and Tails, but Blaze just barely wins. The fact that she initially starts out as a loner, yet eventually she learns about having friends in people like Cream, Marine, and especially Sonic really shows that she knows that she can trust others, even if she doesn't want it. This is due to the fact that she is the guardian of the Sol Emeralds, which are the polar opposite of the Chaos Emeralds. Having the power to control flames, as well as having a fear of heights show that Blaze has her strengths and weaknesses. This makes Blaze one of the most interesting characters in the Sonic series.

I really like blaze for many reasons.. She's strong and very skillful, can keep up with other speed type characters like sonic and shadow, having pyrokenetic powers, and even though she started out as a very cold person who doesn't rely on others, she began to trust in other characters and become more open towards them. I find that really interesting. I also find her past life interesting, how she was alone and all... Even when she went through tough times, she still stood strong and independent and I find that amazing! I think she should be second next to sonic

Blaze is my favorite because of her skills she's very much like sonic exempt a cat, age, colour and gender are different. She has met several different characters like knuckles, cream, sonic (sonics rival), amy, shadow, marine, silver, tails and lots more. She owns her own demotion for gods sake that's awesome. She's princess and guardian of it. She may be serious and might not be good at making friends... But she's amazing. She has Sam qualities as sonic... She's fast, talk active in battle and so much more I just can't remember. I love cats they've got amazing abilities she uses a few of them. Her voice after in 2012 Olympic game was amazing it suited her! For crying out loud who doesn't like a cat with fire powers I would wish for my cat, Carla to have some sort of power... It would be wow! She doesn't have to many friends (like sonic) she is good at taking her time with trust it's not like randomly walk up "oh hi let's be friends" like in treasure team tango she says "my trust ...more

Blaze is such a well liked female character it is quite amazing. She is the strongest female character in the whole list of female characters and quite high in the males as well. Being called many times the 3 famous hedgehogs female double in ways. With this she also has a mystery backstory, but with the things shown is very sad. She also has a rough time making friendships hard, but once she does she is very loyal and protective. This is until you stab her in the back you will have to show a lot about the friendship you have. Also she has strong relationships with Shadow, and Sliver. Durning parts they are together there is many inferences of love and evidence. This could make for a great love triangle. She also has this with Sonic sometime knowing this it could make any mad for a very interesting relationship show how they are friends in past games. Her personalty also make you love her a loner but a protecter, a hidden backstory, her suriving Iblis, quite funny at moments, and new ...more

7 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.

Doctor Eggman is a mechanical genius. He is only bettered by Tails in IQ and he's so funny in Sonic Boom as well! Forget all them people who say that Bowser is better, in my opinion, only Doctor Neo Cortex from the Crash Bandicoot series and Bowser Junior are better villains then Eggman, and I love the names that Sonic calls him as well, it's so funny! Eggman is actually really underrated. He doesn't deserve to be tenth, he deserves to be sixth. Ahead of him is Tails at first, then Sonic, the Amy edging it over Shadow, then Sticks, then Eggman. He shouldn't be insulted by being put under Rouge and Metal Sonic.

#savetheegghead

Okay... first of all, Eggman is one of the best characters ever! I was shocked when I first visited this site to see that Eggman wasn't in the top ten! Shame on you people! If it weren't for Eggman, Sonic the hedgehog would suck! (no offense, but Eggman is what makes Sonic the hedgehog pure awesomeness! )

3 reasons why Eggman is fabulous:
1. he is super smart! Who else has an IQ of 300 and builds destructive robot armies?
2. he is the main villain, therefore, should be one of the most popular characters in the series!
3. he is hillarious! The funniest thing is how he got his name from the shape of his stomache! Haha laugh out loud

I believe that he should be number four, or even three, perhaps five, as unlike many of the other characters, the latest games haven't characterized him as some helpless person that needs someone to guide them. Certainly, he may have some bad lines here and there, but overall, most of them did do somewhat good, and half the time, he didn't sound like an idiot, as this certain character has a lot of potential.

I hate Robotnik more than Eggman, especially since he's abused Scratch, my favorite character in Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. Anyone who finds that funny should have his or her ass handed to him or her.

I also hate Robotnik for abusing animals and yelling, "I hate the hedgehog," which I react by shouting, "Shut up, Robotnik."

So screw the bully of a boss and his fans!

8 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.

One time Metal sonic knocked the door on Amy house. For 8 seconds Amy thought that he was Metal Sonic Then She saw Metal Sonic And was hitting him with her piko piko hammer.

Metal is the only recurring true enemy that has almost beaten Sonic several times, and holds a wide array of his own weaponry, such as a chest-mounted laser, electrokinesis, shapeshifting and the ability to copy other characters' moves and attacks, not to mention he rebuilds himself into Neo Metal Sonic, and blows himself up to become Metal Madness and the Metal Overlord. He also is one of the strongest characters in the series, being able to destroy sets of spikes by simply floating into them. Ironically enough, he is the hardest boss in Sonic CD but is not fought like a boss, he is instead raced.

Villain that isn't afraid to kill in a kid's franchise, he's actually powerful enough to defeat sonic and pretty much the whole cast, he copies abilities so if anyone does beat him he can overcome defeat, one of the first characters in the franchise (meet him at rhe same scene as amy! ). I don't understand why he isn't more popular, other than because he hasn't been featured in a game for a while and kids haven't played games with him in it. Although, to be honest, I wouldn't want my favourite villain in a game in the future as all their games seem to suck now.

Metal was created to be better than Sonic in almost every way, and was a complete success on Dr. Robotnik/Eggman's part. Out of the Mecha Sonic series which includes Silver Sonics Mark 1+Mark 2, Metal Sonic 1.0, Mecha Sonic, Metal Sonic 2.0 and Metal Sonic 3.0(Comics exclusive). In whatever canon the Metal Sonic we know now (Metal Sonics 1.0 and 2.0) is the most powerful one in the series, both in the comics and games. Best invention Robotnik/Eggman has ever made hands down.

9 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 definitely the most underrated video game character that I've ever seen! Whenever I look at lists for Top Ten Sonic characters, it's always that my other favorites Tails and Sonic are really high up, but Amy stays around the eighth or ninth spot! I saw that in my last top ten and was absolutely outraged! Amy is probably one of four characters that I liked the most at a stage. The others were Tails, Luigi and group boss Nikki, Lindsey & Ginny from Luigi's Mansion 3, but I digress. I think that Amy is one of the best characters of all-time, and I don't see how other people don't see that as well as I do.

I just watched episode 9 of Sonic X again and I almost cried when it ended. Amy might love Sonic as heck, but she just wants to protect him. She did more of the fighting than Sonic and even gave him a good luck charm (which he ended up wearing at the end) All I'm saying is that Amy Rose deserves more respect.

Amy Rose is my second favorite character (Silver's my first) and here's why: she's grown so much! In the beginning she was basically helpless, needing to rely on Sonic for nearly everything, but now she's a FIGHTER! She's fast, strong, tough, determined, and WAY more mature. And the stupid Sonamy haters can get a life, because I DON'T ship Sonamy (I like Sonaze).

Amy is a really, really good character. For some reason, I dislike her just a little bit in Sonic Boom, but that doesn't stop her being one of the best Sonic The Hedgehog characters around!

10 Rouge the Bat

A lot of people hate on her for being flirty, but there always has to be one of those girls in the franchise. Anyway, other than being flirty, she is strong, smooth, and sneaky, all the perfect makings for a trickster character, another thing this series needs. She sometimes may have her view tinted by greed, but she knows where her localities lie. Rouge is alright.

Number five on my list. She is super attractive, and the first Sonic Character ( besides sonic, duh) to catch my eye! She was my favorite as a kid, and she is a great character!
Best Voice actor: Lani Minella
Game: Sonic Adventure Two (second best sonic game)
Yeah, she’s loud and proud, and flying in Freedom! ( much better.)
- Super Sonic Fan Person

Rouge is just the best female Sonic character. She's basically the Black Widow of the Sonic Franchise and I love her for that.

She's Number 9?! Only number 9?! Rouge is so much better than most of the characters above her, especially Sonic. She's beautiful, skilled, and has a lot of personality. She doesn't give a crap about how dangerous something is. And she isn't afraid of jumping headfirst into a fight. She doesn't care what she does like kissing Tails, flirting with her enemies, making fun of characters, and even becoming a spy. She has to be in the top 3 at least.

The Contenders
11 Espio the Chameleon 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.

Espio is probably the most underrated character on this list. He is shown to be highly intelligent (computer hacking, seeing through all the tricks of villains that for some reason nobody else can see, and being the brains and success from all the Chaotix missions) and is considered officially the 3rd fastest character in the series (behind Sonic and Shadow obviously) Also, he has high combat skills, heroic but not egoistical like Sonic, proven to be badass but not as overdone or overly dark like Shadow, and can be sympathized with for underrated-ness like Silver! And on top of ALL of that, he doesn't go out of his way to prove he did all these awesome things with a big, fat ego like characters higher on the list would do! He may have an ego at TIMES, but doesn't overdo it like Sonic, Shadow or that birdbrain Jet the Hawk. Granted the closest character personality wise is officially Espio, however the difference is that he is classified as a hero along with Sonic and Shadow is ...more

Espio is my favorite. He got so many unique styles. He's a Ninja Chameleon. Who doesn't like Ninja Chameleons? Also I don't agree with Shadow at #1. He is completely over rated. I knows all you Shadow fanboys will give this comment a bad rating but this is Shadow:

SONIC WITH HOVER SHOES AND BLACK AND RED SKIN! What's the point? Everyone talks about his special power of Chaos Control. Did you play Sonic Adventure 2? Sonic did it too! All this can mean anyway is you started playing Sonic after Sonic Adventure 2 came out. Sonic is way better than Shadow but Shadow is over rated by everyone. He isn't original. He's came out of a copy machine. But anyway Espio is my favorite.

Espio is one BADASS character.
He got Super Speed, he can Camouflage and turn invincible.
He got Stealth mood, Cool ninja skilled, Ninjutsu expert,
Ninja weapon expert, Great acrobatic skills and reflexes, Espionage, Hand-to-Hand combat skills, Limited computer hacking, Extendable and powerful tough
, Master of scaling surfaces, Experienced detective and data collector
, Grinding, Keen Mind, Powerful and destructive charges with horn
, Harnessing Chaos Energy, Hyper Mode initiation

He a true Ninja, he like.
Peace and Quiet
Researching
Target practice
Training ninjutsu
Self discipline
Freedom
Speed
Danger
Independence
Justice

I have many favourite Sonic characters, including some higher up on this list, but Espio gets my vote! He encapsulates so many of the traits of other beloved characters in one extremely cool and unique style. He deserves way more love than he gets and it saddens me that him (and the chaotix, though not so much Vector because he has remained popular) have been present less and less in recent Sonic media. He's the only chameleon there is and what an amazing one to have! Who doesn't love a ninja?

12 Cream the Rabbit

She gets a lot of hate for nothing. People say that she's useless but she's awesome in Sonic Battle and Sonic Rush, and someone says that she's a clone of Amy with Tails abilities, but it's not true, Cream isn't a fangirl who only cares about how to chase her love interest character, nor is a yandere; yes she can fly like Tails, but the fly ability is not her main ability, her main ability is the one of having a chao as assistant, think of Rosalina & Luma from Smash Bros. Aside of Super Tails that's not canon, nobody else has a mini flying assistant that you can use in gameplay, in the Sonic cast; also she has unique design and she is not another hedgehog nor a recolor of someone else. I vote Cream because she gets a lot of undeserved hate from the fandom.

SEGA should get Cream to be Tails top tier number 1 apprentice so they will work together and hang out more because that would be fantastic and brilliant, change her age to 7 and give her a chance to start all over again but keep her sweet and helpful personality. Cream is really super brave and heroic she would do whatever it takes do get the job done, without breaking a sweat. Her voice sounds brilliant. She know how to defend herself and fight back no problem. Cream is never annoying at all. She knows how to be mature. people seriously need to get their minds straight NOW and she's not even useless nor cowardly at all because she can face up all sorts of challenges either with her friends or on her own in order to succeed. Cream also knows how to save and protect others from any danger or harm, even when she's doing her own secret vigilante crime fighting stuff even for fun. she's also supportive and super helpful to all her friends and others. whenever they need her even at most ...more

Cream is my third favorite Sonic girl! She's a sweet and well-mannered rabbit but she knows how to fight when necessary. It may seem that just because she's only 6 she can't do anything and is always being protected but that isn't true. She is actually pretty strong and does her best to help everyone

I don't understand what is so bad about Cream. Come on. This is a rabbit who is not only sweet, for she is also able to use her ears as wings. Seriously? Really people here need to get a better understanding of good characters.

13 Vector the Crocodile Vector the Crocodile is a fictional anthropomorphic crocodile from the Sonic the Hedgehog series who debuted in Knuckles' Chaotix in 1995, and later returned in Sonic Heroes as head detective of the Chaotix Detective Agency. With a great love for music and money (the latter which he is always short ...read more.

My brother's favourite Sonic character is Vector, so I had to put him in the list, but he's not a bad character. I'm torn between him and Espio, but Vector probably edges it for me.

This music-loving, short-tempered crocodile with one of the most unique designs of the Sonic universe may seem to be solely after the money sometimes, but Vector has proven several times to be a real capable detective who will always help those in need for free. Thus, his detective agency is constantly short on money, but he is the only member of his team to worry about the rent and will take any job to pay off his debts. However, he is a generally optimistic and kind of childish character and enjoys hanging out out with his friend. He performs as the lead singer of his own band, which contains just the same members as his detective team, and believes to have a great singing voice, although it is rather destructive than enjoyable.
In my opinion, he has both an awesome design and an unique personality. Although the underdog of the franchise, he enjoys investigating way too much to give up his agency and gets behind secrets before anyone else does.

I absolutely LOVE Vector the Crocodile. He is, in my opinion, the Best Sonic Character of all time. Out of all of the Sonic characters in the Games, Comics and T.V. Shows, he takes the number one spot.

The reason I like him so much is that he can look menacing but in reality, he's just a big softie. I also love the fact that he's a detective and that he's willing to help anyone in need. There are just so many things that make him my favourite, but it would be a very long list.

I hope that he gets paid more and get his Vanilla bun.

Ah, Vector, where do I start with you? Whenever he completes a job, he sometimes refuses to get paid because he thinks that helping people is reward enough and I think that's brilliant. My favourite animals are crocodiles and he has the best Modern design.

He needs to have some development away from Espio and Charmy and I would love to see him as a playable character again. I also find that he gets the worst treatment in the franchise.

14 E-123 Omega

The Sonic/ Mega Man & Crash Bandicoot franchises should not have a robotic setting whereas the main antagonists are old, male & evil scientists & the main protagonists are tall, lanky & same-color-obsessed males with annoying hairstyles. The Pac-Man franchise should, besides, Sonic is nowadays an adult.

He's a bulk y black and red robot that has the abilities of both gamma and alpha robots. He can control shadow the hedgehog. That would mbe a cool job to have.

He is awesome! Plus I like the back story of him as a robot, but he's still friend friends with Rouge and shadow!

Honestly I found this character through Mario and sonic at the olympic winter games. but he is an awesome ROBOT. (yes I know what he is) @:-D

15 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 is the best (along with Wave & Storm). It's a shame they were only in 3 games. Also, Sega should either include them in future games, or add more characters who are birds!

He may not be the best of the best...but come on people HE IS AWESOME... he is at least better than Metal Sonic

This should be number 1st place, because he's my favorite sonic character of them all. Sonic's my 2nd.

In my opinion, Jet The Hawk is one of the most underrated characters that Sega have ever made.

16 Mephiles

This guy had a lot of potential, but at the end he ended up being a generic doomsday villain with unclear reasons for his actions who won't appear again. He still has some pretty neat aspects, as he's also the same as Shadow (time-space related powers, born from an experiment, and obviously also the same looks) but more deranged and creepy. From a certain point of view, he is what Shadow would have become if he let himself sink deeper in his hatred. So when Shadow battles him, he is, in a way, fighting his inner demons.

P.S. His general hamminess, Dan Green's voice, and awesome boss themes also make him more enjoyable.

Cunning, dark, and chaotic. Mephiles is a villain to behold. Having no mouth, he relies on actions to show his motives, in turn revealing more personality then most villains I’ve seen here. His appearance is utterly frightening and very unique, being the only sonic character to be crystal-like. While his backstory is flawed a bit, his personality makes up for it. His interactions with Shadow are exhilarating and tense. His boss music for his fights are stunning. And he simply chills you to the core.

I’d like to see this total gem of a character be brought back into the games, preferably in a Sonic 06 remake (a remake in which Elise is a tomboyish hedgehog who isn’t crushing on Sonic, Silver and Blaze have more moments, Shadouge becomes canon, and there are zero glitches). I think Mephilles is a character that is too good to lose. His abilities are insane compared to the garbage villains we have now (ex. Infinite, Zavock...). Get him a whispering voice and a little more in-depth character design (you know..so he doesn’t look like a deviantart spawn). Anyway, even if we don’t ever see him again, I cherish his character now. He’s cruel, cunning, and creepy, and Shadow’s formidable nemesis.

Unlike infinite or I don't know if I should even compare infinite to Mephiles but
Infinite lived in the dark he embraced it
But Mephiles IS THE DARKNESS

17 Chaos

Out of all the characters on this list, he has the backstory, and the awesome, but sadly has not many appearances, but when he DOES appear, it will be a great ride through. a being of Chao's and the Chaos Emerald, Mutated, and originally tasked with cleaning the water, then when the Ehidna clan tried to take the emeralds, he became perfect chaos, and then got trapped by tikal. then after a while, returned. he is so cool, he is elastic, shapeshifting and simple in design, nothing can beat this god of destruction in my opinion.

. Water? Creature. Perfect clear water around its altar of the master emerald. Turns into perfect chaos and beautiful graphics in Sonic Generations. Awesome.

Chao's are so cute and adorable! There about the same size as Chip. They don't speak and that is so cute.

22? He's my second favorite! Shadow being no. 1. Get him up on this list please.

18 Tikal the Echidna

Loyal, peaceful, and very kind. Tikal is quite a sweet character. Her appearance is similar to Knuckles, and is refreshing from the red powerhouse we know and love. Her soft peach color is calming and beautiful. And her sweet, kind personality, and soft-spoken but urgent words paint her as an interesting female character. Her sense of justice is as strong as Espio’s, but in a softer way. Tikal is a character that sweet, shy people everywhere can enjoy.

Tikal is my favourite Sonic character. She is so calm, helpful and always knows what's right. In the comics, she is a magical spirit and people pray to her. If I get the chance to work in SEGA I would absolutely make a game with her as the main character. "Chaos is power, enriched by the heart..." - the words I'll remember forever. Tikal is also very beautiful and her theme song always makes me happy. Even though she's not real, she is the thing that gives my life meaning. Whenever I feel sad or depressed, I think about Tikal. She is my idol. I've never seen someone so awesome, so perfect as she is! I even like her more than Sonic, I draw comics about her and listen to her song almost all the time. The world would be way better if we had more people like Tikal!

Definitely an underused character with lots of potential. Her interesting background and cool spiritual powers would make a great addition to the franchise, as well as provide a friend for poor, lonely Knuckles. Could have been a cool sidekick in guarding the master emerald. At the very least, have her be a reoccurring guide as the little ball of light from sa1. That would be better than omochao (shudder) or basic question marks for sure. Of course, with the series "returning to it's roots" aka "we're killing off all the non-classic characters and not actually changing much else" this will never happen.

On Knuckles the Echidna's 16th birthday Tikal refers to Knuckles the Echidna, her brother/boyfriend/descendant as "Sweet 16" & Knuckles wants British Columbia for his 16th birthday. Knuckles gets angry because of how pompous he is & guess what? This is a parody of the "The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3" episode whereas Knuckles the Echidna plays the role of Kootie Pie Koopa & is a boy echidna who is called "Sweet 16" which makes Knuckles act like a little girl. Also, Nintendo & Sega could be responsible of the crossover episode whereas Knuckles is voiced by Ray William Johnson & having the same voice as Crabapple from Annoying Orange.

19 E-102 Gamma

Really guys! Come on gamma was programmed for mass destruction... Yet he made his own choices and decided to free the trapped animals in the other robots. He died just so the bird that was functioning him could be free with his family.

His death was the most heroic and human thing I've ever watched

He had more character development in one game than Shadow in three. He has a better story in a game with a lot of stories than Sonic 06's story. One of the characters with the most golden heart in the franchise is a robot. It's IMPOSSIBLE not to like him.

E-102 had one of the best story lines! (Even though he was only in one game) E-102 was the predecessor of the E-1000 Series. This includes E-123 Omega! Even better, Dr. Robotnik didn't know of his betrayal at the end of the game.

Gamma is Boss! He betrayed his master and (SPOILER ALERT) Dies in a most depressing way. He really had a heart unlike those other robots...

20 Knuckles the Echidna

What's this "classic" mean? Knuckles is knuckles and that is that.

This is already on the list.

Doesn't exist, but would be pretty cool 😊

21 Sticks the Jungle Badger

Sticks is one of my favourites! She's strong, she's got a great knowledge of how to survive out in the wild and she is a quality character in Sonic Boom! Yes, she's a bit crazy, but that just adds to the character. I personally prefer her to both Knuckles and Amy in the show, and Amy's also one of my favourites! I think that they are both very underrated, but I think that Sticks should at least be in the top ten, not twenty-fourth! She's by far the most underrated character in the series and I hope to see more of her!

She's a coward I could imagine her in Amy's arms Scooby Doo style and she has an I.Q lower than Patrick Stars and I'd oughta whack her with an oar if she comes into my house and eats all my food and attacks my sister like a Gremlin I would call Video Game Animal Control.

Sticks is really cool! Why do you hate her because she doesn't have much money! That's like saying you only like snobbish brats like Amy! Sticks has way more swag than Amy primrose

I like her being single. to be honest. I like a lot of the Sonic couples but I like Sticks being a strong powerful single female I can't see her being in a relationship.

22 Sally Acorn

She is NOT bratty or arrogant! She’s confident! There’s a difference! And the whole deal with slapping Sonic? Chill out! That was ONE time, fanbrats! Sally was just worried! She is a legit queen, inside and out and deserves more than just the Archie comics.

Sally is by far one of the best female characters. She’s kinda like a more outgoing and confident Blaze. I find her to be absolutely gorgeous, inside and out, and wish Sega hadn’t forgotten about her. She’s too good of a character to lose.

Sally is a great sonic character. Even if she is a princess she is not stuck-up or bratty she is independent and cares about her friends. Why do people hate her so much and why are people calling her a Mary Sue look people her kingdom was taken over leaving her and her friends to survive in the woods just leave her alone. Sally is a great mother figure to Tails she wants him to be safe because she doesn't want him to be roboticized. Sally is my favourite sonic character

It sad that Archie Sonic Comic was Cancelled no thanks to Ken Penders who talk Scott Fulop into sueing Archie and giving the fans the middle finger because of the 2016 lawsuit Sega ended it ties with Archie which was the only Media Keeping Sally & the Fighters alive was discontinued no thanks to Ken Pender and greedy Ego.

23 Shade the Echidna

She has a mix of knuckles and Tikal, along with shadow and espio. She is just what I like to call ( from Pokemon) a garchomp. Shade isn't in the series but everyone can still know her story. Shadow- she's not afraid to kill someone or something straight away, knuckles-she's kinda clever, Tikal- I think she was sweet until something happened, espio- she has ninja like skills! Who can't love her! If you don't like shade... Go sit in the corner and think about your life

Shade has a lot of potential to become the most favorite female Sonic character along with Blaze, she may need some character remodeling but she could make It top 10 easily. She deserves another chance to be in a sonic video game!

I love shade. I can't believe shes only appeared in the dark brotherhood. I mean everyones always like whos shade and I'm like seriously GET A LIFE! I seriously think she should be tied with blaze as the most popular female character. I mean shes damn right AWESOME!

I love shade why don't you people know her

24 Chip (Light Gaia)

When I first played Unleashed on the PS3, I wasn't sure about Chip. I thought he was annoying and had no purpose in the game. But as I played through the game, he established a lot of character development. As you go and place the Chaos Emeralds in the Gaia Temples, and after you defeat the Egg Lancer, it's revealed that he's Dark Gaia's good counterpart, Light Gaia. And in the final battle, he takes control of an Iron Giant-esque stone golem constructed out of the Gaia Temples to kick Dark Gaia's ass. And the ending, where his spirit floats in the air telling Sonic to live, the Gaia Colossus gets sealed in the planet's core, and Sonic gets a bracelet in memory of him. He is my favorite minor character in the game because he's so badass!

Chip is my favorite character. He's got a cute design, an awesome voice actor, and his personality is adorable. He's so optimistic, hyper, and happy, but when things are looking bad or someone's feeling down, he's there for them, like a true friend. He's also got an awesome story. Poor guy had amnesia and couldn't even remember who he was. Even when he found out he's practically the god of light, and that it's his destiny to save the world, he never let it go to his head. He was still his same sweet, childish self. Also, I have something in common with him: we both love food!

In sonic unleashed after finale boss it's so cool at the end it's cool music one cut seem chip saved sonic in battle and made Gaia colosus with a rock temple chip also has a power a shield that protected sonic theirs a song called endless possibility the credit pictures are so beautiful and adorable. It's a cool character chip is if you beat dark Gaia again you can use super sonic and chip the

so cute and funny! plus he's one of the only characters (besides tails) who wasn't scare of werewolf sonic. plus his food obsession makes him even funnier

25 Helen

Very underrated! Helen is a sweet kind girl and one of Sonic’s friends. I wish we had her as one of the main characters in sonic x instead of Chris.

She is very nice and kind. In some of the very first Sonic X, she was so happy and she made me want to smile.

A important character from Sonic X.

I agree why can’t we have her instead of stupid chris
