Worst Sonic Characters

The Top Ten

1 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 is a spoiled, unworthy princess who gets captured more than Princess Peach in 7 Mario games. She doesn't care for the people for Soleanna or the world, and she has feelings for a blue anthropomorphic hedgehog, yet everyone says that sweet, optimistic, and adorable Amy Rose is creepy. My god is such a diva who just wants to to make out with Sonic. SHE MAKES ME SICK!

Elise has a more similar personality to Princess Peach compared to Amy Rose who is more simalar in personality towards the hermaphrodite Birdo.

In some other Mario & Sonic franchises such as "Mario Power Karate/Sonic Super Tae Kwon Do/Mega Man Judo Open/Pac-Man Kung Fu Tournament" Mario's main rival will still be Sonic, Luigi's main rival being Amy Rose, Princess Peach (who will barely be in this game)'s main rival being Dr. Eggman (who will kind of be in this game), Princess Daisy od Sarasa Land's main rival being Miles "Tails" Prower, Wario's main rival being Silver the Hedgehog, Waluigi's main rival being Silver the Hedgehog, Bowser's main rival being Knuckles the Echidna, Yoshi's main rival being Blaze the Cat, Bowser Jr. 's main rival being Vector the Crocodile, Donkey Kong's main rival being Storm the Albatross, Toad (of the Mushroom Kingdom)'s main rival being Sally Acorn, Rosalina's main rival being Jet the Hawk, Diddy Kong's main rival being Rouge the Bat, Birdo's main ...more

What does all the crap in the center have anything to do with princess Elisa III?


You hate her because of one insignificant scene in an old game? Seriously? - Crxme

She's actually really beautiful and a great character. Would love to see her again.

2 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 is most definitely the worst character in Sonic history. He, in my point of view, was completely unnecessary. In Sonic X he was supposed to be some type of important character, which he really wasn't. As far as I'm aware he wasn't really needed. The only important thing he did in the show was when he convinced Shadow to help save the world. However this was totally unnecessary considering the fact originally Amy was the one who persuaded Shadow to save the world. Besides that all he really does whine.
Seriously, anything this brat did, an original sonic could do.

Chris. Is. The. Most. Worthless. Character. Ever.

He's Sonic's new best friend, right? One problem with that SEGA. TAILS IS SONIC'S BEST FRIEND AND ALWAYS WILL BE NOT SOME BRATTY RICH KID. He also takes mostly all his lines from Tails and Amy, making Tails a useless character, and making Amy be a short-tempered psycho. LITERALLY.

In Japan, Season 3 of Sonic X wasn't even aired, because it was losing popularity BECAUSE OF CHRIS. Take that, Chris. You just got stabbed in the back by SEGA.

The only reason he was added was so the audience could know about Sonic without playing the games. However, SEGA doesn't even make him more powerful or smart so he becomes part of the main plot, and steals other character's lines. Not to mention because of that, and due to the fact that you're in his perspective, he becomes the main character. Sonic is only shown without Chris sometimes, when HE SHOULD BE THE MAIN CHARACTER.

He also says the most retarded things, and becomes ...more

What... Chris should be number 1! His obsession with Sonic makes Amy's obsession look tame. He is a whiny spoiled brat who complains all the damn time about how his life isn't "fun, " yet he's rich, he has two loving parents, and he has friends. Die Chris die!

You're over-exaggerating, Amy's obsession with Sonic is FAR worse than Chris'. - KennyRulz244444

I used to think Rouge was the worst Sonic character because she's so ' annoying! She still is, but when I watch "Sonic X", I realize that Chris is even more annoying. Couldn't we have a Sonic anime taking place in Sonic's world with more of a focus on SONIC THE HEDGEHOG and his friends instead of an obnoxious kid and his awfully annoying family. The only good thing about him is Mr. Tanaka. I ' love Mr. Tanaka! But I hate Chris more than I love Mr. Tanaka! Elise may not be an interesting character or one I'd like to see in another game, but Chris is so much worse.

3 Omochao

The cute little Rouge chao and Knuckles Chao can be gameplay helpers as well. - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon

As if he wasn't annoying enough there's a hack on the internet called Sonic 1 omochao version! So annoying!

How many times have you tried to kill this stupid robot!

This huy is so anying he tells what to do and that is REALLY annoying so annying I wish he didn't exist

4 Big the Cat

Maybe this character is very stupid, lazy, fat, slow, etc.. But also very funny. - Yona_db

He's a cute Kitty Cat guys. You're being very unfair to this poor kitty cat. - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon

Big is very stupid, lazy, and fat in the game. But it is very funny in the animated serie

Big serves literally no purpose whatsoever and was just shoehorned into Sonic Adventure just for the sake of having an extra gameplay style. enough said.

5 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 just a rude jerk. She is a hypocrite too. She used to be a good character back in Sonic Adventure 2 but ever since Sonic X, she's been nothing but a narcissistic divalike ass. Pushing tails around like a doormat just because he's nice, abusing knuckles, threatening cosmo, forces people to agree with her and then you still Call her "cute"? Oh yeah, and most of the time she kept calling knuckles and sonic "idiots" but what is she? She cannot tell the difference between Sonic, Shadow & Silver when they're clearly not the same hedgehog. She uses violence to everything instead of actually finding a strategy. Another thing that makes amy such a hypocrite is she Said "you really should thank sonic for saving you life, after all, you were the idiot here" even though knuckles saved amy TWICE before she Said that and she did not thank him once. Instead she just jumped on Sonic and kept being rude to him. Ungrateful brat

More like Amy Blows!

Amy was created to be a damsel-in-distress for Sonic CD, but SEGA took her too far.
Amy Rose: The Female Rapist!

On the other hand, I'm not a supporter of SonAmy or SonAlly, But Sally is a more useful character. She doesn't scream and hump Sonic's leg, And she would be a much better female protagonist.

I respect your opinion, but I think calling Amy a "rapist" is going a bit too far, don't you agree? - Qryzx

Does she know that Sonic doesn't like her? She makes Sonic and Rouge look stupid. She does anything for Sonic for nothing. Plus she does everything Princess Peach from Mario does. *Peach is annoying and uses hearts that do nothing* both are annoying and different females should take their places in Mario or Sonic.

She's so obsessed with sonic, it's kinda creepy...

6 Sally Acorn

To be quite frank, Sally seems to have a lack of personality in my point of view. In my opinion her character is bland. I think she would've been an enjoyable character had she acquired a well-rounded personality. Pertaining to the issue of her choice of clothing (A.K.A. vest and boots) I don't particularly mind that, but it would have been better if she actually wore clothing instead of a vest like the rest of the female cast. I mean, take a look at other females in Sonic. The others actually wear a dress or pants and a shirt. In that issue I really don't understand the idea behind her lack of real clothes because it really doesn't make her look respectable in any way, shape, or form to me.

I dislike Sally beyond all else. Number one, she breaks up Amy's whole character which I think is one of the funniest things in all of the Sonic universe. Number two, she is one of the weakest Sonic female characters. If you relate her to Blaze, Rouge, and even Amy are stronger in battle skills and physical power than her. Number three, I believe that she is the most overrated Sonic character, and I don't even understand why she's popular.

Am I the only one who has noticed that most of the people hating for her are either because of the SonAlly ship, or because of Amy? Guess what haters, Sally and Sonic aren't in a relationship anymore, so you can calm yourselves. As with Amy, Sally was never mean to Amy. Amy was immature and unready to be a Freedom fighter back then (Now she's a good Freedom fighter, hence why Sally accepted her). And before you complain about Tails and Cream, Tails didn't have much of a choice. The Freedom Fighters raised him since he was a baby and they were very few, so they all needed to know how to defend themselves. Besides, no offense intended to Amy, but Tails had more potential to be a good fighter. And Cream, Cream is obedient and would follow orders without hesitation (Amy would insist. That's not bad but it may have put her in danger. Tails wouldn't have obeyed either because he probably would sneak into action), this assured Cream will be able to stay safe. Besides, Cream was involved in ...more

She sucks and it was so funny when Blaze burnt her to a crisp and Knuckles told her that Sonic would never love her. - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon

7 Charmy Bee

One thing I notice is that many Sonic Characters who are unpopular/disliked the most are Kids. This Includes Charmy, Cream, and Amy. But what most people fail to realize is that Charmy is only 6, and the reason he is so hyper and loud and outspoken is because he's A KID. Many Sonic Characters themselves are Teens or Children, Sonic included. All kids act the way Amy nags, Charmy's Hyperactivity, and Cream's spoiled behavior can all be rightfully blamed due to age and stereotypes of how they behave. So before you start hating on them, think about that. - JojoandSkulljocks

When I was 7 years old I thought Charmy it's girl (because he has a voice look alike girl). He still very young (like Cream and Tails) BUT why in Archie version, they (Archie Comic) make Charmy had wife?!

Go kill your self bee no one likes you

Its Charmy Bee. No one seriously cared about him, a majority of the games that had him tended to be terrible, the comics were even worse when involving him (there's an LSD trip, an origin story involving the typical Eggman going genocide and the insect gets damn amnesia with "copyright removal" girlfriend as a bonus)

8 Eggman Nega

I don't know why he's on worst villains. I LIKE HIM. He's calm, yet crazy and has more to offer the series as a whole. He should be the ruler of Silver's future world. There now he's successful.

Sonic characters didn't have to be in the Vancouver Olympics. Pac-Man characters did.

Why are you talking about Mario and sonic olympics? This list is about the worst sonic characters

When was he in a Sonic game?

I think he was in sonic rivals. You know, the psp game

9 Froggy

Lets be honest here, Froggy was more important than Big

Big the Cat and Lara-Su share custody of Froggy now that they are an item ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon

How'd he even get on here? Besides being Big's "companion" he really hasn't done much to have people make opinions about him, despite his annoying game where you have to fish for him.

Froggy... he can wander all he wants, Big.

10 Silver the Hedgehog

Stop hating Silver cause of Sonic 2006. It's SEGA's fault for rushing the game and giving him a very poor and unpolished boss fight, not Silver's. He's psychic, telekinetic, can fly, and is 200 years into the future how can you hate him?

Silver Is A Great Character, Come On Sega Give This Telekinetic Hedgehog A Chance!

Why did you put me on here I rock you people have no taste when you put shadow sonic me and blaze on here

YOU IDIOT silver is from 200 FLIPPIN' YEARS IN THE FUTURE if you think this character is bad then you will be cursed for the rest of your life and Sega will hate you forever. Silver is super smart and attempts to save the future. Stop hating silver he is a extremely smart hedgehog and who ever hates sonic has no gaming experience is a all time gaming noob and should never ply games EVER again

His character just sucks he sucks in the games, he sucks in the comic and he sucks in the fandom, it make him into a whiney little homo punching bag

The Contenders

11 Sonia the Hedgehog

Sonia sounds like a smaller pinker version of marge from the Simpsons.

What's wrong with Manic the hedgehog so if you hate Sonia and Manic than you may as well hate Sonic too

Sonia isn't bad for a Sonic the Hedgehog character.

Has a annoying voice but she has done some pretty cool things

12 Julie-Su Julie-Su is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics.

The most disgusting Mary Sue in the Sonic Universe. She shouldn't exist. Glad Penders took away this sorry excuse for a character.

Why is she only 91? She's as bad or worse a mary sue than Sally Acorn!

Yeah, she should be right up there with Sally.

She even has Su (Like Sue) in her Name. - Qryzx

13 Black Doom

He's kinda creepy I don't like it

I think black doom on kinda a cool villain in shadow the hedgehog

Very boring villain WAY more boring than Egghead probably the most boring villain in any media =/

The only thing good about him is his design but still he sucks

Black doom even his name sucks

14 Lyric

Lyric is plat out stupid

He's just weird

Utterly dumb name for an antagonist.

Like game, Like character.

15 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's to overrated you can't deny it

Despite Shadow being my favorite character, I agree he is overrated. But that doesn't necessarily make him any worse. - SelfDestruct

He is the worst! If he is a "hero" than why did he try to kill Sonic (who is a real hero) multiple times?! Sure he saved him a couple times but he's still annoying! I hate him and I hope he dies and goes to hell!

It bugged me so much when he became more popular than characters that came before him that are more important to the series, such as Tails and Knuckles, which, in my humble opinion, are better characters. Shadow is also cliched considering that Sonic already has an anti-hero in the form of Knuckles and a rival/evil-counterpart in the form of Metal Sonic. The Shadow fandom is also horrendous and they have many misconceptions of him and constantly get into fights with one another about the character. His "Chaos Control! " line is starting to get annoying and it makes Navi's "Hey! Listen! " much more worth listening to.

Now, I have no problem with Shadow being Rouge's love interest, or with his appearance in Sonic Adventure 2 being his only role in the series since the bittersweet ending for him would have made more sense if he didn't come back, but ever since he was revived, he took away the spotlight from all the other characters and this spotlight stealing is what caused the ...more

Now I like shadow but sorry I hate his fanboys now fanboys are different from fans. Let me explain fans like a character and can acknowledge the character's flaws but fanboys have misconceptions and believe that character is the best thing ever like a fan would say shadow can beat sonic and is awesome but a fanboy would be like SHADOW WILL MESS UP SONIC AND CAN BEAT ANYONE IS THE BEST THING EVER

16 Marine the Raccoon

That raccoon only appeared in sonic rush together with blaze she's is very crazy and talks and talks nonsense she's has an annoying voice not as annoying as charmy bee

I love Marine! Why is she on here? She's so cute and has a cool water power and is so CUTE! Her voice isn't annoying and that is offensive to me because my accent is just like marine's.

Marine is pretty crazy her voice is annoying pretty much it

I'm not surprised that Marine is on here, after all, I hated sonic rush adventure

17 Rouge the Bat

You I-D-I-O-T. Why is one of the coolest characters in the whole series on the list of worst sonic characters?

If only she has a more Russian accent that sounds a lot like Nadia from Muppets Most Wanted's.

Rouge is better actually nude in gameplay.

In Sonic heroes if you use the first person camera as shadow or omega and stare at her for a couple of seconds, she'll look at you and wink. It seems creepy to me.

18 Cream the Rabbit

Watership Down 2: Cream's gory death - running for two and a half hours featuring the slow death of a useless character

But she's a 7 year old girl. She's polite unlike Amy. But the problem is, she's so broken in Sonic Advance 2 that you could just beat the final boss in just 1 minute. Anyhow I love Cream and a gory death is too extreme on an innocent girl. - Hellohi

Cream the Rabbit would be much better off sounding like Dory from Finding Nemo & having a more 20 year old girl's body.

Useless spoiled little shot = cream

19 Ella

Ella isn't too bad but I could improve her appearance by giving her a more in shape body & with other clothing but dresses.

I hate Ella, she is ugly and very fat

Seriously? If you hate this character because she's fat and human, that just makes you shallow and racist. Humans can be accepted in the Sonic world too; I mean really, human characters like Eggman and Maria exist for a reason. And why the hell would you hate someone due to them being fat? These people are messed up individuals... - MillieTrina_Prower

But always praise her Spanish accent which is not just stereotypical.

20 Sticks the Badger

She's honestly a tad demeaning to anyone who suffers from actual mental illness. I'm getting real sick of these 'OooOOoOoOo, I'm crazy because it's edgy! ' characters. People with actual mental issues tend to have reasons for them, and creating characters where their insanity is the butt of every joke just continues the social stigmas about mental illness that lead so many people, including/especially kids and teens (you know, the audience that this is projected at), into suicide. I though better of Sega. I know they're not the best writers, but I would have at least thought they'd have the best interest of kids in mind, as again, that's their target audience. She completely ruins the otherwise great show that is Sonic Boom.

She's mean to Tails whenever he does something by accident when it comes to his machines. I always felt sorry for Tails whenever he accidentally does something he doesn't mean to do, and Sticks is just an unlike able ass!

I hate her so much why did they even add her
To me, she's the most (tied with Sally) overrated character
And her VOICE! Don't get me started with her voice.

They made Sally Acorn an LGBTQ character to make her likeable and they are making her the love interest of Sticks The Badger. ❤ - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon

21 Dr. Eggman Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik is a fictional video game character and the main antagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, created by Sega.

This is an original! If Eggman didn't exist, Sonic would be nothing. Where is the action, irony, and fighting? He has an incredible voice actor and without him, there is no antagonist. You can't just hate someone because of some annoying line. (More the merrier) because there are others too (It's no use, long time no see, etc. ) Dr. Eggman is amazing!

In my opinion, Eggman isn't a bad character. He's some of the coolest villains of all time in video games!

In shadow the hedgehog the game the egg breaker in the mad matrix version whenever you fall off of something he always says this "YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY THE MORE THE MERRIER! " over and over again

Eggman is a better version of Bowser, he is actually productive, he doesn't go around harmlessly kidnapping a whiny brat that you call a princess and he is very comedic. - KennyRulz244444

22 Infinite

He COULD'VE killed Sonic if his ARROGANCE didn't get in the way... However, he IS truly awesome and has a look about him like... "You wanna go bro? Fine. Hope there's some of you left to clean up the mess afterwards."

Infinite is basically Mephiles but nowhere near as sinister or evil. He boasts about how powerful he is, along with everyone fearing him... only to be beaten by Sonic and the Avatar with little effort.

Best sonic villain ever, unfortunately he had to suffer through a terrible plotline.

Infinite is a great character! Sure, he had flaws, but other than that at least he an actual reason to become a villain. His entire team was destroyed overnight and he got kicked in the face. That's embarassing and enough to traumatize or anger a person. And, instead of sitting around and moping that Shadow wiped his reputation out, Infinite decided to stand up for himself. He didn't just cry that he lost his squad and his pride, no, he actually pulled his ass off the ground and got to work. Look at what he did; he destroyed cities, committed mass genocide and partially took control of most of the world side-by-side with Eggman. THIS character right here, did all of that. It's what you call a decent villain. Not perfect, of course (I won't deny Infinite's dumb mistake of letting Sonic go), but he is decent.

There are rumors going around that there might be a Forces 2. If so, I hope Infinite returns. Along with other characters, he deserves more spotlight.

23 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.

Whaaaat? He's the best Sonic villain! Way better than Mephiles or Infinite!

Hey! Metal sonic is the best robot

How can he be annoying if I have honestly never heard him say anything?

METAL SONIC FOR SMASH! Sorry I’m listening to life light right now and playing smash. I literally said on a different list that wave should be in smash so sorry about that.

24 Chip

Copies off Shadow with amnesia.

Rips off Silver's voice

I prefer Mario Unleashed.

Chip, that stupid, self centered, whinny, raccoon
That's Marine. It's even under here as 'Marine the raccoon'.

Chip is a guardian of the world who was that... Squirrel bunny mix thing. Anyways, he was awesome unlike that dumb raccoon.

25 Zomom

"HEY! WHO YOU CALLIN' FAT? " Hee hee~ I just love Zomom (even though his crewbies are without a doubt "one dimensional"). He gives the Sonic Lost World's cut scenes a good percentage of their comedy. However I can see why people find him annoying, and I respect your opinions. Thanks for reading! (...Man, thinking of him makes me hungry for a sub...)

I love sonic lost world. But this thing or character (I don't even know what it is) is annoying. He should be lower on the list

I'm laughing because Sonic's head gets bashed with a 20 foot sandwich.

I don't like him. Sorry :/
