Underrated Sonic Characters


The Top Ten

1 Silver the Hedgehog Silver the Hedgehog

I admit this characters ball puzzle was annoying especially when he's like "It's no use" but this guy is amazing! - Artattack

Silver isn't underrated anymore. Since he already has a lot of fans, just like Sonic and Shadow.

Silver is awesome! He is a telekinetic hedgehog from the future!

This guy could destroy Sonics though by the way I'm a shadow fan used to be but now I'm a sports person

2 Big the Cat Big the Cat

People hate this cat because of his gameplay from Sonic Adventure (which I do too) but he is not always like that example in Sonic Heroes he lost Froggy again but there's NO FISHING involved! - Artattack

Well, Big the Cat and Rosalina (from Mario) are finally meeting each other's matches - themselves. Anyways, in Sonic Adventure, I best liked Big the Cat's gameplay. Just kidding. I still love that kitty, though.

I have nothing against big the cat he's just retarded and fat and the only thing he says over and over again is froggy froggy all the time

Often hated by most people because they like Blaze better, but I disagree. Both Blaze AND Big are good characters.

3 Charmy Bee

Sure this guy was annoying in Sonic Heroes and Shadow The Hedgehog but he is just a energetic kid cut this guy some slack huh?! - Artattack

I prefer all the other members of the Chaotix (excluding Heavy & Bomb) over Modern Charmy Bee. Do no hate me.

He's Only 6
Most 6 Year Olds Are Annoying

4 Jet the Hawk Jet the Hawk

The reason I mostly play Sonic Riders games is because of The Babylon Rouges they are pretty funny. - Artattack

I Used To Hate Him.
But When I Replayed Sonic Riders In 2011, I Found Him Hilarious And Now I Like Jet.

He's A Jerk
But He Is Extremely Funny


5 Cream the Rabbit Cream the Rabbit

I love Cream because that she is so cute. - Artattack

Cream deserves much better and she also deserves love and respect. Forget being a sidekick,Cream should be the leader of her own squad and she deserves a much better role as a hero. there is nothing wrong with her being girly and she's better off with Tails even he himself also deserves much better. I see nothing wrong with her at all and she is truly a great character no matter what. SHE IS NOT USELESS. She has potential to become powerful. Don't blame her. SEGA, GIVE HER A CHANCE. CREAM IS NEVER USELESS AT ALL!

Nowadays there's no reason for her to appear in the games. We got plenty of characters that can glide now, and she only came in to save her mom. Why would someone kidnap a regular woman, expcally over & over again? She's even younger than tails as well. Also, as fun as u might think killer cheep cheese is... it's too overpowered.

Besides all that, I like that cream is a sweet and polite little girl.

Cream is not Tails' love interest. Stop pairing them up together, they never shown any romance towards each other in any of the games or such. Tails loved Cosmo in Sonic X and Zooey in Sonic Boom, not Cream.

6 Amy Rose Amy Rose

I think Tails and Amy should be a couple, but either way Amy's cute. Her voice in sonic lost world is fine. Unlike peach one of the most overrated characters in videogames. Also, she's caring at times. NOT USELESS AS PEACH IS! HER VOICE is at times a little annoying in my opinion, but she's still cute.

Am I one of those people who think Sonic and Amy would be a great couple? - Artattack

I like Amy but her voice can be annoying at times but she still is awesome I mean she has a giant ass hammer for crying out loud! She will always be one of my favorite character.

This may sound weird since she's fake, but I feel bad for her.

7 Marine the Raccoon
8 Fang the Sniper

If Fang the Sniper actually had a Southern accent, I would consider him lovable for a hillbilly like Classic Sandy Cheeks and Mater (from the Cars duology). Team Hooligan is underrated, especially Bean the Dynamite. Fang the Sniper can jump higher than his height and is brainy. Love him for that.

9 Espio the Chameleon 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 the reason Mighty's gone that's why we hate him" Oh cry me a river, Espio is not the reason mighty's gone! According to an interview in Sonic Central, Sonic doesn't know the whereabouts of Mighty, Ray, Bark, Bean or Fang/Nack. This explains why they haven't made a game appearance for a long time. you idiots need to get your facts straight before randomly blaming characters. also he could have quit, Vector could have fired him, he could have retired, seriously people if you were to blame anyone here it should have been Vector being the boss of the chaotix. Jeepers.

I see people hating this guy because he was the reason Mighty The Armadillo retired well actually I heard rumors that they might bring Mighty back in later sonic games. - Artattack

10 Ray the Flying Squirrel Ray the Flying Squirrel

Ray is cute. He deserves more attention.

The most underrated and overshadowed character ever.

Anyone above is overrated. Ray is one who deserves more appearences than he has.

He's a great guy

The Contenders

11 E-123 Omega E-123 Omega

As much as Silver is my all time favourtie fictional character, I feel he's both under and overrated! Omega is Gamma but is you gave him the Sonic Boom Knuckles treatment. Only difference? Omega is brilliant. Watch the Super Gaming Bros play Team Dark, Sonic Heroes on YouTube and you'll fall in love with this guy!

I like E-102 Gamma but I think E-123 Omega is more powerful. - Artattack

Yes sonic 06 sucked but omega was kinda fun to use


12 Mephiles the Dark

This guy deserves a lot of credit. Did Eggman or Shadow ever succeed in killing Sonic? Mephiles did. Even if it was non-canon, it happened before being erased from history.

Archie made mephiles canon. Scourge lock down part 1

13 Tails Doll

Only by the creepy pasta I guess. I almost never heard of this. Looked at videos of this its cool. Its like an evil tails.

Why are people scared of this thing? - Artattack

I'm not scared of Tails Doll. But I wanted him t have the same eyes as Tails, whether he's Classic Tails or Modern Tails.

14 Shade the Echidna Shade the Echidna

I will say that Chronicles was ok at best, but I for one really enjoyed the edition of Shade. I mean she's a futuristic techno ninja from the distant past that can leech another's life force and even teleport. The overall plot and by extension her character arc was kinda under done, but with some more fleshing out Shade could be an awesome addition to the Sonic crew!

I admit the game she is in, Sonic Chronicles is an ok game, but she as a character sucks. She looks weird and stupid and her attacks in the game are weak.

Shut It!
She Had A lot Of Potential To be A Strong,Serious,And Smart Female Character
Don't Blame Shade
Blame Sega For Being Stupid

15 Sonic the Hedgehog 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.

Why is he here?

Despite being the main character, he is underrated

If anything he's OVERrated.

He's override

16 Rouge the Bat Rouge the Bat

Rouge is very underrated she is a amazing fitter a awesome thief, she will always be a favorite in my book, and no I don't like her because she's sexy I'm a girl I think she's a badass!

Very Underrated... And Silver :3

No she's overrated. It's ok she's more fan services than Sally acorn, but Sally is a slut, but rouge is awesome and 'sexy'.

She's just a dumb manipulative shellfish brat who flirts with all the guys and would've let shadow destroy the world even though she could have stopped him.

In the end, she's badly a better character than Amy and gets away with. How does she work for like the military if she's a stupid, shellfish, w***e, thief? What a Mary Sue.

17 Miles "Tails" Prower Miles 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 is like one of my top ten favorite characters he is so awesome!

It's very upsetting that Modern Amy Rose gets more love than the members of Team Sonic, Team Dark, the Chaotix, Blaze the Cat, "Team Mighty", Metal Series, Silver the Hedgehog and etc.

18 Princess Elise the Third

I can't see why she is underrated. To be honest I always thought she was badass because she was the only one aside from Violet Parr who had the ability to form a rolling Incredi-Ball when pairing up with a speed type character. So yeah I definitely give Princess Elise a lot of credit.

I would like to see her again.

19 Cheese the Chao

He's a CHAO! Chao's are so ADORABLE!

20 Cosmo the Seedrian

She is honestly one of my favorite Sonic characters of all time. She is nice, cute, and did something extremely sad and epic at the end of Sonic X. It would be awesome if SEGA decided to put Cosmo in a Sonic game. She is very underrated.

The Only Legitimately Good Character(Along With Shadow And Rouge) In The English Dub Of Sonic X.

Team Sonic has good Sonic X characters (especially Knuckles). The Chaotix (excluding Modern Charmy Bee, whom Daviddizor overrates big time) is another good Sonic X character. Team Rose has surprisingly terrible Sonic X characters that are too overrated no matter what.
