He is a heroic blue hedgehog that at times takes possession over his past self, Nicky.[1]https://x.com/SatamHistorian/status/1778202281340809606?t=rMSXfIfTFZpA9mQNgBM3zg&s=19

Appearance

Sonic is an anthropomorphic hedgehog with blue fur covering most of his body and peach skin on his arms, muzzle, insides of his ears, and front torso. He has small, triangular ears atop his head, six long quills on the back of his head, two spines protruding from his back behind his shoulders, and a short tail.

As for attire, Sonic sports red sneakers with white cuffs around the ankles and white straps across the top, along with a pair of white gloves.

Personality

Fearless and extremely confident, Sonic seems to be the complete opposite of Nicky. He is highly friendly and always prepared to confront villains and assist those in need. Sonic exhibits a strong sense of integrity, refusing to engage in combat with women or children and disdaining those who fight unfairly. While he may seem nearly flawless, he also possesses a mischievous side and can be quite outspoken. Additionally, he has a tendency to vocalize the names of his attacks.

Powers and Abilities

Sonic’s most remarkable ability is his incredible speed, which allows him to accelerate instantaneously to astonishing velocities for an indefinite duration.[2]Sonic the Hedgehog (Bessatsu CoroCoro Comic SpecialChapter 3, “A New Buddy, Tails, Enters the Stage!!” Because of this speed, Sonic can run up walls and across water.[3]Sonic the Hedgehog (Gekkan CoroCoro Comic Summer Vacation Special Issue), “Big Dreams Are My Energy!” Furthermore, Sonic possesses remarkable precision, enabling him to process nearly any actions, regardless of their speed. This allows him to anticipate repetitive patterns and maneuvers.[4]Sonic the Hedgehog (Bessatsu CoroCoro Comic SpecialChapter 10, “Showdown at the Casino!!!”

Sonic has the remarkable ability to directly tap into and harness the energy of a Chaos Emerald. With this energy, his powers are amplified, enabling him to execute supercharged attacks. This form of attack is referred to as a Chaos Crash.

In addition to his speed, Sonic possesses impressive strength and agility. He can effortlessly lift and hurl objects much heavier than himself, particularly showcasing his arm strength by launching Anton Veruca into the air with a single punch[5]Sonic the Hedgehog (Shogaku NinenseiChapter 5, “At Last, We Learn the Truth About Sonic!!”[6]Sonic the Hedgehog (Bessatsu CoroCoro Comic Special) Chapter 1, “Big Dreams Make Sonic Propel Forward!!” and hurling large amounts of metal scrap over great distances,[7]Sonic the Hedgehog (Bessatsu CoroCoro Comic Special) Chapter 2, “Come On, Guys! Let’s Daaance!!” even while airborne. Sonic’s strength also allows him to break through various materials without difficulty and swiftly break out of ice when frozen. Furthermore, he exhibits remarkable durability, enduring falls from great heights without sustaining injuries. On one occasion, he endured being crushed by Metal Sonic and a drill from a giant robot boring into his chest without serious harm.[8]Sonic the Hedgehog (Bessatsu CoroCoro Comic Special) Chapter 12, story one

Sonic’s primary attack is the Rolling Attack, a technique in which he curls into a spinning ball and propels himself towards his targets. With this attack, he becomes an unstoppable force, capable of destroying various types of surfaces. Sonic can also perform different variations of the Rolling Attack, such as creating water spouts and generating friction in the air to increase the surrounding heat. If he generates enough heat, he can even ignite his entire body. Additionally, Sonic can assail his enemies by jabbing them with his sharp quills.

In addition to these abilities, Sonic has demonstrated remarkable talent as a singer and guitarist.

Weaknesses

Despite his impressive array of skills, Sonic is unable to swim.[9]Sonic the Hedgehog (Shogaku Ninensei) Chapter 6, “Pops Out of The Time Box Whenever There’s a Crisis!”[10]Sonic the Hedgehog (Shogaku Sannensei) Chapter 7, “Sonic! Hurry to the Rescue???”
