Worst Sonic Characters


The Top Ten

1 Chris Thorndyke

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!

I don't like him too - starssugar

2 Princess Elise III Princess Elise III

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?

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!


Just looking at this image of her makes me cringe. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

3 Big the Cat

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

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

Big. What can I say about him? He's retarded, fat, lazy, creepy, and stupid. I mean, he's 18 people! 18! And he always looses his stupid frog. Why should we help him? His stupid frog and his fishing stuff is his stuff. Not ours. And he completely ruined Sonic Adventure. Sonic is about freedom and speed. Not some boring fishing. Big the Cat should never be created. EVER.

Big just doesn't have a purpose in the franchise. He annoys me whenever he comes on screen.. - JakeSmith17

4 Omochao Omochao

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

"Press the but that says 'jump' to jump" "Amy in an annoying bitch" "tails sounds like a 6 year old" "shadow is edgy in his game" - Sanicball

5 Amy Rose Amy Rose

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.

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.

To be honest, Sally is just as pointless as Amy. She pretty much hogs Sonic more than Amy in the comics, and she's such a jerk most of the time. - KennyRulz244444

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

6 Sally Acorn 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.

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

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.

Sally is stupid

7 Eggman Nega

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 - Sanicball

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

Eggman Nega: another version of Eggman no matter what the name is.

He is the descendant of Dr. Robotnik, but he hangs around in an alternate dimension. How odd. He seems to have a confusing history. - Xylophone786

8 Charmy Bee

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)

I would kill charmy. He ruined a certain level of shadow the hedgehog who is named after my savior. -shadowswagger922

9 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.

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

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

Some people just can't handle his edge. - Xylophone786

10 Froggy

Lets be honest here, Froggy was more important than Big

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.

You guys do know he doesn't want to leave Big, right?

That has nothing to do with why he's in the list, if froggy didn't wake up and wonder around in sonic adventure, we wouldn't have to do they stupid ass big fishing levels - Sanicball

The Contenders

11 Rouge the Bat 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.

Oh, shush. Rouge is awesome! - SonicFan4Life

12 Silver the Hedgehog 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

Silver is an awesome character and you guys are making him gay and stupid! And you're teasing his hair. His hair does not look like a weed-plant. It looks very awesome. I don't make him look stupid. I make him look edgy and cool. I'm his biggest fan!

13 Sonia the Hedgehog

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

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

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

Sonia is actually an improvement over Amy Rose - Dragontree102

14 Black Doom

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

He's a good villain but everything else about him is horrible.

Ahhh~ the creepy, cliche, hypocritical alien Black Doom. We all need our daily dose of creepy-cliche-hypocritical alien everyday, don't we? :/ Do be honest, I think he should have gotten higher on this list. No doubt about it, he's useless, the easiest boss fight in the world, and has a voice that sounds like a Darth Vader wannabe. Not only does he make zero sense, but he'll literally make Shadow kill his own men for no apparent reason. He's also the WORSE choice for a character to be Shadow's "father" (oopsies! Spoliers! E-e) To keep it short, I find him very unoriginal and just a horrible character in general. But, if anyone disagrees, I'm fine with that, I just thought I'd share my opinions. Thanks for reading. ^^

15 Dr. Eggman 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 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

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

Why Eggman? I'd rather they developed him and made him the villain in more games than give us some forgettable villain like Lyric. - DCfnaf

16 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

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

Cream the rabbit is just 6 years old! gosh if you do not believe me go to sonic new network wika. even do she sound annoying ( to you haters) she is actually a good charater in the sonic fransise

17 Ella

The worst thing they have done in the cartoon is to add humans, and worse is add a fat old woman as Ella. - Yona_db

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

Who ever says someone is fat is retarded. You don't call people fat for no reason

18 Bunnie Rabbot Bunnie Rabbot

19 Fun is Infinite Sonic

For those who don't know who Fun is infinite sonic is. Well he's not exactly a character however he is still very infamous in the sonic series. In sonic cd, some of you might know that you can access the sound test from the main menu. Well from the sound test you can access a number of secret messages. The creepiest message was one with a screen full of sonics kneeling down with their thumbs up, it wasn't normal sonic however, sonic was wearing I think something like an anonymous mask but at the time many people thought it was Mario's head. The message on the screen was 'FUN IS INFINITE WITH SEGA ENTERPRISES, MAJIN' main in Japanese many devil. The music added to the creep factor but that depended on which soundtrack you had. The boss theme played so obviously the us version of this message would have been scarier. Many people found out about this message by accident.

If you just found out about this character now, then I suggest you don't search it up now as I told you the ...more

Ok look I don't know who this character is, but don't look it up! You never know what creepy pasta might pop up on you! DO NOT SEARCH UP THIS CHARACTER IS WILL SCARE YOU! For some people out there in the world, thank you for taking my advice. That's all I have to say about this creepy pasta character or whatever! Bye!

Thank you, I was foolish enough to go against your advice but now I regret it and I will listen to people who offer good advice. Again thank you - TwilightKitsune

The day I found out about this character, it scared me for life. It also put me of Sonic CD for good! Trust me if you don't know who this character is, I envy you. Please don't be tempted, don't find out who this is, don't search it, you'll regret it!

Imagine being a younger kid playing this game and seeing this awful thing pop up on the screen. Scary!

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.

I Can't Believe She's Lower Than Shadow, Rogue, And Silver, I Mean Whoever Made This List Is A Moron, This List Is Too Much Based On The Cartoons, Hey Morons, SONIC IS A GAME FRANCHISE!, If You Want To Talk About Sonic X Make A Whole Different List, See This Is The Reason I Can't Enjoy Any sonic Cartoons, You Haters Make It Hard - VideoGamefan5
