Underrated Sonic Characters


The Top Ten

1 Silver the Hedgehog Silver the Hedgehog


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

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

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

2 Chris Thorndyke Chris Thorndyke Chris Thorndyke is a fictional character and the main human protagonist of the Anime series based on the Sonic the Hedgehog series created by Sega, Sonic X.

Chris has chronic big gay

This character should be number 1 on this list. - Jeff35122

What do you mean poor!?!? He is rich and has almost everything in the world!

He shouldn't be here... E-e

3 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

He gets hate because of the gameplay in his scenario in Sonic Adventure. It's ridicilous. Big is gentle, easy-going and caring, ready to help his friends in need. I love him. He did deserve a better story in Sonic Adventure, though, I would have loved to play as him in more stages. - Kana79

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

4 Amy Rose 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 thinks sonic loves her, amy is 12, sonic is 15, pedophilia confirmed!

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 used to hate her, but is an okay characters after all

5 Cream the Rabbit Cream the Rabbit

She's not even in Team Sonic Racing! Only four random chao!

She deserves more! - OrangeRin

She is hated for no reason at all.

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!

6 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

7 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


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 Marine the Raccoon Marine the Raccoon

Never seen her in a single Sonic game "🎮

10 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

The Contenders

11 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!

Miles Tails is increasing in popularity, he's well cute, come on let's make tails in the top 10 for underrated at least, dis ain't fair.

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.

12 Blaze the Cat Blaze the Cat


She is one of the greatest female Sonic characters unlike Modern Amy Rose. She is well-loved only due to the broken Sonic fanbase, like many other heroic Sonic characters.

13 Cosmo the Seedrian Cosmo the Seedrian

She needs to come back

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.

My all time favourite underrated character among Sonic and his friends. Escaping the Meterex, helping Tails while creating a love relationship with him, a loving family, and sacrificing herself for the Universe just to restore peace ☮️ is just enough why Cosmo must be added in SEGA games.

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

14 E-123 Omega E-123 Omega

I agree on this list for E-123 Omega so Super Duper Underrated. Same for Silver the Hedgehog. He's underrated too.

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

15 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

16 Ray the Flying Squirrel Ray the Flying Squirrel

SEGA revived him and Mighty, so they are thankfully getting more attention now, thanks to Sonic Mania Plus!

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.

17 Bark the Polar Bear
18 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.

Everyone talks about Sonic. Saying that he's underrated is as bad as saying the Sonic characters are bad. But no I like them all. They are so unique. - SpecialFunWorld

Haha lol great joke!

Why is he here?

If anything he's OVERrated.

19 Bean the Dynamite
20 Mephiles the Dark Mephiles the Dark

If Kanye West is real, so is Mephiles.

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

21 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.

22 Mecha Sonic Mecha Sonic
23 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.

Seriously is jut crappypasta.

24 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.

25 Shadow the Hedgehog 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.

Shadow is my favorite, plus he is the literally most edgy and underrated character in Sonic!

26 Metal Series
27 Bunnie D'Coolette
28 Cheese the Chao

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

29 E-102 Gamma

If you don't know this robot look it up or read The Shadow Saga comic book. Gamma a robot with a sole.

Know I consider both gemerl and this guy UNDErrated.I mean when was the last time you heard love for BOTH? Also unlike shadow (no hate to shadow though) STAYED dead.

30 Knuckles the Echidna Knuckles the Echidna

Nothing wrong with anyone that has such strong punches. >:(

Maya White got more likes than dislikes for putting Knuckles the Echidna on her list of worst Sonic characters instead of Marine the Raccoon, whom she put on her list of bes tSonic characters instead. NO >:(

31 Vector the Crocodile 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.

So underrated it’s annoying how underrated this guy is...

I wish I could vote for most of the Chaotix. But seriously, Vector the Crocodile is just as powerful as the Flight Leaders and other Power Leaders from Sonic Heroes. What's not to love?!

32 Mighty the Armadillo Mighty the Armadillo

Yeah go mighty! He should be in a lot more stuff

He's one of the best Sonic characters. Hell, he even makes Knuckles the Echidna look like Omochao! He's THAT great! He needs extra credit for being both hyper-strong, kind-spirited and super-speedy at the same time. I can see reasons why people like Amy Rose, even though she must bottom this list.

33 Vanilla the Rabbit Vanilla the Rabbit

She deserve a bigger role and she deserve to be a hero.

34 Sticks the Badger Sticks the Badger
35 Sally Acorn Sally Acorn

Sally acorn is the princess of Mobius and leader of the freedom fighters! Her bracelets can withstand meyal sonics claws! Sally is awesome unlike that stupid amy rose!

There's a reason why she's in this list her there's sonamy fan girls hate sally

Classic Sally Acorn will always be better and more underrated than Modern Sally Acorn. Furries are severely overrated. What's the point of giving characters sexy bodies if you are just going to cover them with fur?! Uggh...

Give this poor girl a break! She is so underrated! I have a message for all you sonamy fans! Sally doesn't like sonic! She likes Antoine D'Coolette! Sega please please please put sally in sonic games! I and lots of other people would love that! Thank you! 😢

36 Classic Eggman

I was talking about most Classic Sonic characters when I added Classic Eggman to the list. Yeah, I know. I prefer Classic sonic over Modern Sonic for many reasons.

37 Dr Robotnik - Sonic SatAM
38 Honey the Cat Honey the Cat

I think she should be in this cause she has chaos energy

39 Scourge the Hedgehog
40 Heavy & Bomb

I actually like having these two as partner characters in Knuckles Chaotix. - Artattack

41 Antoine D' Coolette

That's unofficial to the Sonic franchise, so that doesn't really count/stop me from putting Antoine D' Coolette on my list of worst Sonic characters, and Sonic the Hedgehog is the definition of a gaming franchise with mind-blowingly pathetic characters such as Princess Elise III (come at me, Sonic Next-Gen fan-brats! ), Chris Thorndyke, Sara, Black Doom, Omochao, Vanilla the Rabbit and some others.

I feel like people hate on him so much. Go read the fanfic Blood Sweat and Fears and see if your opinion changes.

42 Gemerl

Gemerl from Sonic Advance 3 might be the only underrated and forgotten characters of the modern era. He is Emerl but Eggman rebuilt him with spare parts in the end he befriends Cream. He should return because most people doesn't know he exists and he appeared in a very underrated game and he deserves some love

43 Manic the Hedgehog
44 Iblis
45 Shard the Metal Sonic
46 Maria Robotnik

She was so sweet :( wish she hadn’t died... actually she’s probably underrated because she’s dead...

47 Eclipse the Darkling

Why isn't he on here already? - SackofCheese

48 Metal Sonic 29

He appeared only in 1 game, not much people know who he is
