Sonic is becoming WAY TOO POPULAR than Mario because there are a lot of video games inspired by Sonic. Here there are! Enjoy.

The Top Ten

1 Earthworm Jim

Yes it is true. Earthworm Jim exist because of Sonic the hedgehog. If you love Earthworm Jim, thank sonic. - Chaotixhero

Wow! Really? I did not know this. That's pretty cool!

Earthworm jim is sega, so this dosen't count

2 Bubsy

Oh the Bubsy series was a terrible series that had only three or four games. Way terrible. - Chaotixhero

3 Crash Bandicoot

I kinda say this game was inspired by Mario because the gameplay very similar and they both have boxes with a? On them

No mario inspired him

4 Freedom Planet

I played the demo and it's really good.

Yeah, this came from a fan game.

I found out this was originally a sonic fangame

5 Awesome Possum
6 Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures

I might be going coco when I say Pac-Man & the Ghostly Adventure was kinda inspired by Sonic. Just think, he acts and sometimes sounds like sonic. He also rip off his homing attack. - Chaotixhero

I'm pretty sure pacman and the ghostly adventures was not inspired by sonic

7 Nights Into Dreams

Just here Sonic Blast's soundtrack and the answer is reviled. - Chaotixhero

Nights is a sega game

It still could have been inspired by Sonic, like a Spiritual successor or something... Right? - HeavyDonkeyKong

8 Ristar

Why doesn't he get anymore games? How could SEGA abandon him & only care about the hedgehog? He must return!

There are ton of things that was inspired by sonic in this game but I'm too lazy to name a few. - Chaotixhero

9 Dynamite Headdy
10 Pac-Man World 2

Sonic's super peel out and spin dash. Enough said. - Chaotixhero

I say pacman world 2 was inspired by Mario

This has to be one of my favorite games to play on a PS@ - jwaughtal

Well, this worthy video game's PS1 predecessor Pac-Man World is the top 1 best video game ever besides its older cousin figure Super Mario 64. Why? The graphics, music, gameplay, great creativity, story (not Super Mario 64's, I respect that, Chaotixhero, but it got insanely bad at Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World), power-ups, levels, bosses, and everything else as well! So is the main successor of Pac-Man World 2 which is Pac-Man World 3. I sure wish that Namco would make a Pac-Man World 4 and I think Toru Iwatani does actually agree that Pac-Man/Dig Dug/Teeken/Digimon/all other Namco franchises deserve their respective Archie Comics series. Far Out (Pac-Man World) and Erwin's Fortress/Dungen Gunden music is the best gaming music ever! This is an open letter.

Yeah and what you just said has nothing to do with this list so... Yeah! - HeavyDonkeyKong

The Contenders

11 Mario Kart

Mario Kart came before Sonic Drift. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Mario kart was launch in 1992 and sonic drift was launch 2 years later

No joke. The Mario Kart series was inspired by Sonic Drift. - Chaotixhero

12 Super Monkey Ball
13 Pac-Man World
14 Super Mario 64

How was this game inspired by sonic!?

Yea...pretty sure this game wasn't inspired by Sonic. - Garythesnail

This should be top 1 although not inspired by Sonic the Hedgehog. I am not referring to the DS version.

Stupid Mario fanboys! This isn't a dang Sonic inspired game! All Mario games are all original! IDIOTS!

15 Pac-Man World (Gba)

Pac-Man World for the PS1 is way better because of how Pac-Man World for the GBA is edited out making this game one of the worst Namco games and actually on par with Sonic Genesis. - The Ultimate Daredevil, a Classic Pac-Man fan who is not a big fan of GBA remakes.

16 Super Monkey Ball Deluxe
17 Pac-Man World 3
18 Super Monkey Ball 2
19 Undertale

How could an amazing game like Sonic inspire a horrible game like Undertale?!

20 Luigi's Mansion

It's a rip off of Doritos
