Worst Things About Sonic the Hedgehog Games

The Top Ten

1 You Always Have to Play As Sonic

Sonic 3, Sonic adventure 1&2, Sonic Unleashed, Sonic Heroes, Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic 2 mobile (and probably more)

In nearly all sonic games you have to play as sonic that is pretty annoying why can't we play as different characters like shadow rouge eggman knuckles tails metal sonic silver vector espio charmy Tikal big or omega

This is one of the reasons why I like sonic heroes.

Lol everyone hates sonic 06 but that's a game with 9 playable characters

2 Bad Puns

Only In The Craig-Smith Era

3 Lives

Not like we have 3 crowns after the 2nd level in Mario games...


4 Light Speed Dash

What, ever played SA2? I think you mean the light speed dash from Generations

5 Scores

Every other video games have scores too! Does that mean they're bad too?

6 Momentum

Speed is what sonic is known for


7 Wisps

Which are only in 2 games

Sonic Colors, Sonic Colors DS, Generations, Lost World, Lost World DS...

8 Super Sonic Is Barely Playable

In a few sonic games super sonic is even in it. That is so annoying. In the games he's appeared in he's just there fir decoration

The majority off the 3D Sonic games where Super Sonic is only playable is at the final boss.

There's a reason for that.
If they gave you amped up speed/jumps, you'd fling off of things like triggered events, walkways, etc...

They're only really going to give you Super Sonic in 2d games (if they want to/have enough memory left)

9 Collecting the Emeralds

I'm glad that Sonic Heroes is the last Sonic game that you had to collect the chaos emeralds to see the last story. Or is it?

I want to be able to play as Super Sonic FROM THE START, but that will NEVER HAPPEN

I hate having to collect emeralds in sonic games

Sonic Generation on the 3DS have special stages too and I HATE special stages.

10 Unnecessary Plot

I wish Sonic games had a bit more of an intelligent plot. If I see one more "Eggman does a bad and Sonic will go and call him 'egghead' and then beat him and then the day is save yay" plot I'm gonna flip.

It's cheesy and predictable, kids wouldn't notice but adults just laugh at the stupidity.

These plots for Sonic games make little aense as the game unfolds

Sonic Mania explains exactly what a sonic game's plot needs.
No talking, no extensive dialogue. Just gameplay and minor level transitions.

The Contenders

11 Sonic Archie Comics

They should be replaced by Pac-Man Archie comics so people talk about that instead of the corny Sonic Archie comics.

Look, that's your opinion. People like it, so they're going to keep making them.

Sonic the Comic was worse. At least the Archie Comics for Sonic make sense.

The comics had so much potential.

Yo, mattstat716! Why do people like Archie Sonic comics?! Is I beause of furry, tweeny love triangles?! There is nothing wrong with preferring Team Sonic, the Chaotix, Team Dark and Team Light (which could has Blaze the Cat, Silver the Hedgehog and Shade the Echidna) over Team Rose.

12 Knuckles' Sonic Boom Design

I know that is not going to be his personal design. But why did they make him on steroids

13 Sonic Pairings

Some can be exotic, some can be downright insufferable (especially a main male Sonic character XXX Princess Elise the Third).

Can romance in action-games just... not?

Tail's cute with Cosmo.

(South Park reference) Well Sonadow is a b*tch it's a big fat b*tch it's the biggest b*tch in the whole wide world...

14 Eggman is Constantly the Antagonist

Not always.

15 Rings

Just like the coins in Mario

I don't have any actual Sonic video games, but I hate rings on Sonic Dash. WHY do you have to drop all your rings as soon as you hit ONE enemy?!?!?! In Mario, you just lose your powerup or grow smaller if you get hit. SONIC should have something like that, because imagine getting 10,000 rings, forgetting to swipe up, and wanting to throw your phone across the room.
They need to change the thing about rings.

"just like coins in mario" Except A) they let you take a hit, basically meaning INVINCIBILITY if you always have 1, B) Are used for Super Sonic
and D) are actually useful in getting Chaos Emeralds.

16 Unnecessary Characters

I know that they're trying to make the franchise a bit different. But in the games and especially the comics. In the comics there's characters all over the place

At least they actually have character development. Seriously, is that really a bad thing in iconic video game franchises?

Because they are just terrible

Yet Tails is actually a well liked character, and Cream is barely in anything.

17 Boss Battles

Some of them okay but the casino night boss from sonic 4 is a ripoff of sonics 2 battles

Not every boss can be MLG PRO 360 NOSCOPE BEST BAWSS ever.

There's going to be a few duds.

18 Falling Into Pits

Falling into pits would make the games worse!

19 Games Are Short

Games like sonic generations or sonic 4 are what I don't like about sonic games. Some are really short which can be completed in a day or 2

20 Extensive Voice Acting

I don't get why the Mario franchise has it often.

21 Fanboys
22 Special Stages
23 Sonic In 2D



Oh wait.

You know, not like that was the way he started off his series or anything!

...Oh wait...

24 Amy Rose's Appearance
25 Anti Sonic (A.K.A Scourge)

Why was he created in the first place
