* Sonic's impact on popular culture is so immense, the series even left its mark in the field of genetics. When a series of mammalian homologues of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedgehog_signaling_pathway hedgehog gene]] were discovered in 1995, two of them were named after real-world hedgehog species, "desert hedgehog" and "Indian hedgehog", while the third was named "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonic_hedgehog Sonic hedgehog]]". Of the three homologues, Sonic hedgehog is the most extensively researched, playing a key role in the development of the human brain. There is even a protein inhibitor that binds to Sonic hedgehog, named "Robotnikinin".

* Even if Sonic has hit some low points in his series, he's still been with us for 20 years. Somehow he and other characters in the series have endeared themselves to the general public and kept going after all this time. He has been a character that has appeared a wanderer and goof-off, but will still work as hard as he can to reach his goals (mostly saving the world), often with the help of some pretty cool friends, and great music in the background. So maybe some of the games aren't that great, but seeing any moments listed here (or ones that haven't been listed yet) will always make that kid in us happy to see a hero just one more time.

* Sonic's surprise appearance in the [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBrothers Subspace Emissary]] is a crowning moment in itself, as he manages to charge up what appears to be the Ancient Light Attack to smash Tabuu so hard, his wings shatter and his [[OneHitKill Off Waves]] are interrupted.

* Similar to the above commercial-related and ''SuperSmashBros'' examples, there's another meta example: his cameo role in ''WreckItRalph''. Why? Aside from the sheer awesomeness of [[http://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/Wreck-It-Ralph-Sonic.jpg Sonic getting top billing in one of the posters for the movie,]] we should remember it's ''a Disney movie'' (and one that doesn't [[VideoGameMoviesSuck suck]], at that, given this is a movie about the VideoGame medium in general - à la ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' - rather than being based on a franchise). Not only he's coming back as a pop culture icon, as stated above; he's getting an ''expanded'' cameo role in a Disney movie. ''Sonic is now part of the freaking Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon''.

* The [[http://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog official Twitter account]] as it stands. Whoever SEGA hired to manage it has an excellent sense of humor and loves the series enough to know all the ins and outs of it, both good times [[SelfDeprecation and bad]].

** In the games where you have to collect the emeralds yourself via special stages, the moment when you get the last one definitely counts. And if it's one of the games where you can go Super Sonic in normal gameplay (so basically every Sonic game after ''Sonic3AndKnuckles'' and before ''SonicColors''), seeing the "NOW SONIC CAN BE SUPER SONIC" message can make you feel particularly triumphant.

!!Greatest Moments
* While it may be wrong to put down an awesome moment in an index page, it needs to be said: Sonic the Hedgehog PROVING how fast he really is by, for about twenty-three seconds, [[spoiler: OUTRUNNING A BLACK HOLE.]]
