** What makes this story really good is that his canonical personality as the Anti-Sonic is maintained with his bigoted opinions and suspicions of ulterior motives from the more heroic characters, his flawed reasoning, and a lack of guilt for previous villainous actions, with his depression turning him into a SympatheticVillainProtagonist.

While a character being very perceptive or making good guesses is considered acceptable, one of the common mistakes people make in writing First Person is giving the reader the feeling that either the narrator is always right, psychic, or is omnipotent in some way. Sometimes the nattator can think 'at' the reader, asking rhetorical questions and making DeadpanSnarker comments.

Successful First Person means the narrator is still often wrong about what is going on outside of their line of sight and knows nothing of the thoughts of others, and may even view past events in a different light.

First Person can be written in the immediate PresentTense, which means that the writer must additionally be careful that the narrator does not know the future, but has the advantage of the narrator not necesserily surviving the story.
