--> A band of misfits constantly trying to earn a living. Vector, Espio, and Charmy initially made their debut being captured by Dr. Eggman, but Knuckles managed to save them and the four of them along with now defunct member, Mighty the Armadillo drove Eggman out of the island. The crew didn't appear for almost a decade until SonicHeroes which gave them all new redesigns and seemingly ignoring the team's history with Knuckles. Since then, they've appeared occasionally taking on any job they can to support themselves.

--> These are a rather dysfunctional bunch, often serving as the PluckyComicRelief with their antics. Vector is the leader and the one who makes the big decisions on jobs; he's loud, immature, and somewhat of a seedy individual but nonetheless has a good heart and even willing to do a job without pay (Much to Espio's chagrin). Espio is the team's ninja expert and Vector's right hand man; a quiet and serious minded individual who constantly hones his skills as a ninja. He prefers not to use his skills for dishonorable means, but constantly goaded into doing so by his peers. Charmy is the team's youngest member, and by far it's most immature. He spends most of his time being a typical kid; hyperactive and constantly getting on Vector's nerves, but he does look up to his peers and does occasionally prove useful in the team's efforts.

Tropes applying to Mighty don't appear here; he has his own section below.

* ActionBomb: Bomb.
* AdaptedOut: Heavy and Bomb aren't in the Fleetway Comic.
* AntiHeroTeam: They will do good, but they expect to be paid-handsomely. Vector at least has his better moments, such as finding a kid's lost toy for free.
* [[HeroWorshipper Anti-Hero Worshipper]]: From Charmy's point of view Shadow is the greatest animal to walk this planet.
* BadassAdorable: Charmy.
* BadassBaritone: In English, Espio sports one of the deepest voices among his peers despite only being 16 (compare this to similarly-aged characters or even Vector, who is four years Espio's senior). Coupled with his lack of eccentricities, this only serves to make Espio come across as even more serious. He's more of a tenor in Japanese.
* BewareMyStingerTail: Charmy, of course.
* BigEater: Vector, who dreams of having 50 five-course meals in ''Sonic Free Riders''.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: In the Archie comics, Eggman eventually recaptures Heavy and Bomb and reprograms them as sleeper agents.]]
* BrattyHalfPint: Charmy, much to Vector's annoyance.
* BreathWeapon: Vector in ''Heroes''. He can breathe fire, musical notes, and bubblegum bombs.
* BrownEyes: Vector.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: The Chaotix are goofy, clumsy, and mostly inefficient as detectives, but they always get the job done.
* ButtMonkey: Vector in particular in the Archie comics, though the whole team often act as luckless comic relief in most incarnations (particularly in ''Sonic X'').
* CanonDiscontinuity: As far as Sega is concerned, ''Chaotix'' isn't part of the series and ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' is the team's official debut.
* CanonImmigrant: Most characters were brought in from elsewhere in the ''Sonic'' mythos: Charmy came from an obscure old manga, and Vector was a rejected concept for the very first ''Sonic''.
* CastHerd: They are rarely ever seen apart.
** Except in ''Sonic Free Riders'', where Vector is part of Team Rose, but the rest of Team Chaotix is neither seen nor mentioned.
** Espio works alongside Silver in ''Sonic Rivals 2''. At least Vector actually has something to do with this game.
** Vector's the only member who shows up in ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles'', but the other two get mentioned (and even then, ''only'' as "Team Chaotix").
-->'''[[VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog GUN Commander]]''': "Vector the Crocodile and Team Chaotix have volunteered to scout for further clues. They're on the channel now."\\
'''Vector''': "Yo, Sonic. It's about time you came back."
** Vector is the only playable one in the ''VideoGame/MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympicGames'' series, but Espio and Charmy routinely appear as officials or [=NPCs=].
* ChickMagnet: Inverted with Vector, who manages to anger both Amy ''and'' Rouge in Sonic Heroes.
* ConjoinedEyes: Vector and Charmy.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Heavy and Bomb, who disappeared almost immediately even in the comics (though they would resurface much later apart from the Chaotix).
** Mighty as well, last seen on a [[VideoGame/SonicGenerations missing persons poster]] with Ray.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Charmy. Vector has his moments as well, especially in ''Sonic X''.
* TheComicallySerious: Espio's attempts to uphold a mystical and dignified composure are usually destroyed by his wackier teammates.
* CrossdressingVoices: Charmy, again.
* [[EverythingsWorseWithBees Everything's More Annoying With Bees]]: Charmy.
* EyesOfGold: Espio.
** Vector's eyes have taken on a more golden appearance over the years. They were vermilion when he re debuted in ''Heroes'', but now, orange-gold would be a more accurate description.
* FaceOfAThug: As a big buff crocodile, Vector looks somewhat rough, but he's really a [[BruiserWithASoftCenter big softie]].
* FlechetteStorm: Espio does this in ''Anime/SonicX'' with [[StuffBlowingUp explosive shuriken.]]
* {{Flight}}: Charmy is almost always in flight, and is the Flight of the team.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble:
** '''Sanguine''' : Charmy, he's a hyperactive kid who is always being a nuisance, especially towards Vector.
** '''Choleric''': Vector, he's the not so charismatic and easily annoyed leader of Team Chaotix.
** '''Melancholic''': Espio, he's the cynical and serious member of the team who at the same time remains apathetic to Vector and Charmy's constant squabbles.
* FreeRangeChildren: Averted. Charmy and Espio are both minors, but they have Vector to look after them.
* FuumaShuriken: Espio uses large shuriken in ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes''.
* GeniusBruiser: Vector is both the muscle and the brains behind the bunch.
* GeniusDitz: Vector might seem like the DumbMuscle, but he's still a great detective. [[spoiler:In Sonic Heroes, he knew all along that Dr. Eggman was their client, and in Sonic Generations, he's the first to suspect that someone might be controlling the Time Eater, a hunch that later proves to be correct.]]
** Alternately, Espio is the smartest member, but Vector makes the {{Zany Scheme}}s in order to lead the group; depending on whether or not you believe ''Sonic X'' or ''Sonic Heroes''.
* GogglesDoNothing: Charmy rarely, if ever, wears his helmet-goggles over his eyes.
* {{Greed}}: Charmy and especially Vector love cold hard cash.
* GreenEyedMonster: In ''Anime/SonicX'' at least, the Chaotix are occasionally shown to resent Sonic for his popularity and bravado, while they struggle to make ends meet as detectives.
* HotBlooded: Espio is described like this in the manual of Knuckles Chaotix. "He has a hot temper and an intense drive in everything he does, and sometimes his friend Charmy Bee has to remind him of his manners." Ironic, considering their modern day characterizations.
* ImageSong: "[[VideoGame/SonicHeroes Team Chaotix]]"
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Vector, Espio, and Charmy are 20, 16, and 6, respectively.
* {{Invisibility}}: Espio via blending in with his surroundings. Named Ninja Art: Camouflage in Sonic Generations.
* JapanesePronouns: "Ore" and "Oresama" for Vector, "Jibun" for Espio, and "Boku" for Charmy.
* JokeCharacter: Heavy and Bomb in ''Chaotix''.
* KidAppealCharacter: Charmy.
* KidHero: Charmy is tied with Cream as the youngest recurring character in the series, being only six years old. At sixteen, Espio is young enough to qualify too.
* {{Keet}}: Charmy.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Heavy and Bomb, in the Archie Comics after becoming BrainwashedAndCrazy.]]
** DeathIsCheap: [[spoiler:Later rebuilt and back on the side of good, now with their original designs from the game.]]
* TheLancer: Espio.
* LargeAndInCharge: Vector is much taller than the rest of the team. He's also the second tallest heroic character, second only to Big the Cat.
* LightningBruiser: Vector initially started as this before he eventually became a MightyGlacier
* LikesOlderWomen: Vector for Cream's mom Vanilla.
** InterspeciesRomance
* LimitBreak: Their Team Blast, "Chaotix Recital", in ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes''.
* MakeMeWannaShout: One of Vector's {{Breath Weapon}}s.
* ManChild: Vector, though the oldest of the team, has moments where he doesn't act quite his age. Arguing constantly with six-year-old Charmy doesn't help much. Though it helps that Vector is still young, only being 20 years old.
* MeaningfulName: Espio's name comes from either "espionage", or the Spanish word for "I spy." Vector was initially this, due to being able to air-dash in eight different directions in his ''Chaotix'' appearance (hence "Vector") but this was scrapped for his ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' reinvention, making his name another OddNameOut.
** Vector can hurl Classic Sonic along a trajectory in ''Generations'', making his name meaningful again.
* MrViceGuy: Vector is not only the greediest, he is gluttonous and somewhat short tempered. Beneath it all however, he's a playful softie, and implied to take a few free cases to those who deserve it.
* MusicalAssassin: Their [[LimitBreak Team Blast]] in ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' destroys robots by singing and playing instruments.
** BrownNote: They sound ''dreadful''. [[WildMassGuessing No wonder Metal Sonic decided to copy their data.]]
** In the Olympic crossovers, Vector's special moves are augmented by musical notes.
* {{Ninja}}: Espio.
* OddNameOut: Unlike most of the characters' names, Charmy's doesn't seem particularly [[MeaningfulName meaningful]]. Vector's name was initially meaningful, but became this as of ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes''.
** In the original western bios at least, Charmy was stated as having a polite demeanor about him, ie. a ''charm''ing personality. Given his [[BrattyHalfPint later incarnation's character]], his name could almost be considered ironic.
* OlderThanTheyThink: Vector was actually a scrapped character for the first game, predating Tails.
* OnlySaneMan: Espio, natch.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Though Vector will occasionally do a job for free if he's feeling good enough, much to Espio's annoyance.
* OverlyLongTongue: Espio in ''VideoGame/SonicTheFighters''. Apparently Sonic Team forgot he could do that as he's never shown this ability since then.
* ParentalSubstitute: Vector & Espio are pretty much Charmy's legal guardians.
* PerpetualFrowner: Espio. Considering that he's serious, he doesn't smile that much. It also doesn't help the fact he's surrounded by the loudmouth Vector and the scatterbrained Charmy.
* PerpetualPoverty: It seems like no matter what they do, they can't seem to make enough to pay for their expenses.
* PetalPower: Espio can make a storm of leaves in ''Heroes''.
* PlayingWithFire: One of Vector's attacks in ''Sonic Heroes'' has him spitting out flames.
* PluckyComicRelief
* PowerTrio
** ComicTrio: Vector is the schemer, Charmy is the dumb follower, Espio is reasonable but powerless.
** FreudianTrio: Vector is the Id, Charmy is the Ego, Espio is the Superego.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Espio.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Averted
* ShoutOut: In ''[[VideoGame/SonicRiders Sonic Free Riders]]'' Vector has a green and black motorcycle called Hard Boiled. [[Series/KamenRiderDouble Why does that sound familliar?]]
* SmallAnnoyingCreature: Charmy.
* SpannerInTheWorks: During the Last Story of ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'', while the three are trying to hack into data disks they discovered earlier, Charmy manages to activate a recording left by Professor Gerald when he was still sane wherein he and Maria urge Shadow to fight back against the Black Arms. Their inspirational words give Shadow the strength to break free of Black Doom's control and fight on.
* TheStoic: Espio, who usually shares StraightMan duties with Vector.
* SuperSpeed: Espio is the "Speed" of the three.
* SuperStrength: Vector is the "Power" of the three.
* TeleportersAndTransporters: Charmy can do this by pollinating flowers.
* ThePowerOfRock: Their blast attack in ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes''.
* ThinkingOutLoud [=/=]BreakingTheFourthWall: When getting ranked it Sonic Heroes and Espio is the one who has the most points he will almost always talk like he is talking to one person, when they get an E rank he will say �Insulting. Your training has been a waste of time�, D rank �Be on guard! Focus, and prepare yourself�. He also always looks directly at the camera, implying he is either talking to the viewer or he could be talking to himself.
* TokenWholesome: These characters wear more clothing than other males, with Charmy wearing the most.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Charmy's is, fittingly, honey. Vector has a huge appetite, but bubblegum seems to be his personal favorite. Espio supposedly likes apples.
* WallCrawl: Of the three characters that can use the triangle jump in ''SonicHeroes'',[[note]]Sonic and Shadow being the other two.[[/note]] Espio is the only who can stick to walls indefinitely. Being a ninja chameleon probably helps.

[[folder:Blaze the Cat]]

-->''"I am the guardian of the Sol Emeralds... It is a fate that forces me to live with my curse, my flames... Because of my powers, I have always been alone... It's also why I must do this alone! It is my responsibility!"''

->'''Debut''': ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}}''

!!!!!!Voiced by NaoTakamori (Japanese), Bella Hudson (English, 2005-2010), Creator/LauraBailey (English, 2010-present)

-->A fire-wielding cat from another dimension and guardian of it's own set of emeralds called Sol Emeralds. Blaze initially ended up on Sonic's world due to both of their worlds on the verge of merging and breaking apart due to her own dimension's equivalent to Dr. Eggman, Eggman Nega. Blaze initially didn't care much for teamwork and preferred to solve her problems without anyone's aid, but thanks to bonding with Cream and Sonic reaching out to her, she eventually grew to embrace her friends and together with Sonic, stopped the two Eggmen. Afterward, she returned to her own dimension, but she does make occasional appearances now and then.

--> Blaze is a very introverted person; she doesn't socialize much and even after growing fond of her friends, generally dislikes having to rely on others. But this is just a facade to hide a very shy individual as Blaze often gets flustered when she's forced to interact with new people. When Blaze is on duty though, she's far more straitlaced and focused on her task. She's also rather temperamental and reckless when her buttons are pressed.

* ActionGirl: Notably, even Sonic is impressed by her skills. She's also the only female character with a "Super" form.
* ACupAngst: WordOfGod says she is less than thrilled about her lack of size.
* {{Adorkable}}: Whenever her [[ShrinkingViolet shyness]] or [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes fear of heights]] comes to the forefront.
* AffirmativeActionGirl: The second one after Rouge, but notably she's the first female character to explicitly be TheHero's near equal in combat, something only Knuckles and Shadow were really noticeable for before that. Doesn't get much more affirmative than that. She's also the only female character to have a SuperMode of her own.
* AFriendInNeed: Despite her antagonistic nature at first, everyone nonetheless tried to reach out to her and offer her friendship. It takes the entirety of SonicRush for her to accept.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: She was shunned and made fun of her pyrokinetic powers. Though, this may not be true for Rush Blaze. She never says that anyone mistreated her because of her powers, only that she was alone because of them and having to guard the Sol Emeralds. During Rush's ending, she reflects on what she's learned, and realizes that her duties and insistence on doing things alone caused her to shut others out. Furthermore, no one in Rush Adventure, which takes place in her dimension, seems to have a problem with Blaze or her pyrokinesis, and Setter, a koala, is even honored to have her grace his home with her presence.
* AlternateDimension: Where she's from.
* {{Anti Hero}}ine: Starts out as an antisocial loner. She [[CharacterDevelopment evolves]] into more of a pure hero over the course of ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}}'' with Cream's influence.
* {{Badass}}: Quite a capable fighter thanks to her pyrokinesis and can keep up with Sonic in speed.
* BadassAdorable: Espeically when she goes into her ShrinkingViolet mode.
* BadassBoast: Tends to let out a few in the Archie Comics, but the one she gives to Captain Metal after he ([[spoiler: seemingly]]) kills Amy, Cream, and Marine stands out as the most terrifying.
-->'''Blaze:''' Let me tell you of duty, Captain Metal. ''My'' duty is to protect the Sol Emeralds and this world. ''You'' hold the last emerald I seek. (''Captain Metal tries to get her to cooperate with him.'') Cooperate with a filthy pirate? Oh no. You'll pay for what you did to my friends. You'll ''pay'' for keeping this world in jeopardy by stealing that gem. You'll give me ''my emerald'' or I can ''pry'' it from your charred remains. Either way you will... '''''BURN!'''
* BadassBookworm: She's quite knowledgeable on the geography and history of her world, and even knows how to read the language of an ancient civilization. A Sonic Channel wallpaper also shows reading to be a hobby of hers.''
* BadassPrincess
* BareYourMidriff: In ''VideoGame/MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympicGames''.
* BarrierMaiden: She becomes Iblis's new [[SealedEvilInACan can.]] [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot Then the reset button got pushed...]]
* BattleCouple: Though it's up for interpretation whether there's anything romantic between the two, she and Sonic are rather close, and are battle partners at the end of ''Sonic Rush'', and throughout ''Sonic Rush Adventure''.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: This is why she's so protective of Cream at the end of Sonic Rush.
* BeneathTheMask: She comes across as [[CloserToEarth level-headed]] and [[TheStoic reserved]], but is far more emotional and insecure than she lets on, though these traits do come to surface from time to time in [[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries some]] [[VideoGame/SonicColors games]].
* BerserkButton: Don't tell her ''why'' you'd put the world in danger, like for [[AGodAmI gaining ultimate power]], or to [[ForTheEvulz make it your plaything]]; you're just going to unleash her repressed [[HairTriggerTemper anger issues]].
** Harming Cream in any way is another way to invite her wrath.
** VideoGame/SonicRushAdventure shows that threatening to destroy her kingdom is another way to make her mad.
* BeYourself: One of the lessons she learns from Sonic in Rush.
-->'''Sonic:''' Listen, don't bite off more than you can chew. And be yourself. You don't need to do everything on your own.
* BrutalHonesty: If the BrattyHalfPint is a nuisance, she'll tell it to her face.
** CompassionateCritic: It's implied that she only did this so Marine wouldn't follow them into danger and get herself hurt. The cutscene where it happens is even titled ''CruelToBeKind''.
* BullyingADragon: When she was younger, she had trouble controlling her powers, and other kids teased her for it.
* BurningWithAnger: Does this when she gets mad at times, mostly in the Archie Comics. Sometimes PlayedForLaughs, other times not.
* CastHerd: Despite the events of Sonic 06 being erased, and being from a different dimension and time period than him, she is still commonly seen with Silver, for the sake of audience familiarity if nothing else.
* CatsAreMean: Subverted. While standoffish at first, at her core Blaze is a good-hearted person.
* CatsAreSnarkers
* CharacterDevelopment: For most of ''Rush'', she was very shy, and set on doing things alone. By Rush Adventure, due to the influence of Sonic and his friends in the previous, she's become much more sociable and willing to work with others.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: While she showed shades of it in the Rush games, in spin-offs such as the Riders and Olympics series, Blaze is shown to have become far more confident. Nearly all of her lines involve her bragging about how awesome she is, and she doesn't take losing well... Not unlike Sonic, one of the main influences behind her CharacterDevelopment.
* CoolBigSis: Has played this role towards Silver (despite being the same age), Cream, and it's implied she may have become one to Marine.
* CombatStilettos: And no, they do nothing to slow her down or mess with her agility.
* TheComicallySerious: Her poor social skills (and being [[SurroundedByIdiots the one serious-minded member of the team]]) lean her into this, DependingOnTheWriter at least.
* ContinuitySnarl: Not even ''Sega themselves'' can decide whether she is from the future (according to ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Sonic '06]]'') or another dimension (according to the ''[[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries Sonic Rush]]'' [[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries series]]).
** [[WordOfGod Iizuka has, at Sonic Boom 2012,]] confirmed that Blaze is in fact from the Sol Dimension, and that ''[='=]06''[='=]s backstory for her should be ignored.
* CurbstompBattle: In ''Rush'', she takes Knuckles down without breaking a sweat.
* CursedWithAwesome: Before she and Sonic became friends, she hated her powers, as they brought her nothing but loneliness and misery.
* CrushBlush: Caliburn telling them to "save the hugs and kisses for later" after Sonic saved her from falling caused Percival to blush.
* CuteLittleFangs: In Sonic Generations.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mostly in Sonic Rush.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: They knew they weren't enemies, and only ended up fighting because Blaze was too stubborn to accept Sonic's help. Nonetheless, they become friends after duking it out.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Ironic, since she's specializes in fire.
* {{Determinator}}: A bit too much for her own good at first. She's extremely dedicated to her duties, and will stop at nothing to protect the Sol Emeralds. Even Sonic tells her that he admires her fortitude.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Of the SonicRushSeries. Her and Sonic are the only playable characters in the series.
* DidYouGetANewHaircut: Upon being saved by Classic Sonic in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'', she points out that he's not as spiky as the Sonic she knows.
-->'''Blaze''': I wish I hadn't needed your help, Sonic, but thank you. By the way, you seem look less... spiky!
* [[DontCallMeSir Don't Call Me Your Highness]]: Hates it when Guardon calls her Your Highness, and frequently corrects him.
** She's called "Miss Blaze" in [[VideoGame/MarioandSonicAtTheOlympicGames London Party]], suggesting she also doesn't like to be called "Princess".
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Despite a mistranslation calling her a queen in the ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' [[AllThereInTheManual manual]], both ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}}'' titles refer to her as a princess.
* {{Expy}}: Why it could be a coincidence, she looks like a furry version of [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Elisabeth Blanctorche]], including sharing some aspects of her personality.
** She also suffers from ACupAngst and is a very powerful [[PlayingWithFire fire user]] much like [[{{Slayers}} Lina Inverse.]]
** She's also a lot like Knuckles, being a shy yet aggressive emerald guardian who uses fire, and initially refuses Sonic's assistance to help her.
* FatalFlaw: Her aloofness made it difficult for her to cooperate with Sonic initially (and at one point halted progress after starting a fight with him). It also made her rather cold natured towards Marine. CharacterDevelopment has toned this down to some degree.
* FateDrivesUsTogether: Seems to suggest this to Sonic at the end of Sonic Rush Adventure.
-->'''Blaze:''' Do you think that maybe you were brought here for a reason?
-->'''Sonic:''' Brought here? By who?
-->'''Blaze:''' (smiling) By the Emeralds.
-->'''Sonic:''' (pauses, looking confused, then smiles) Heh, well, you never know.
* FlipFlopOfGod: Blaze's home goes back and forth between being an alternate dimension[[note]]The ''Sonic Rush'' series[[/note]] and the future [[note]]''Sonic 2006''[[/note]].
** It's also possibly averted, as all official media says the Blaze is from the Sol Dimension. Who knows how she ended up in Sonic's universe's future.
** [[WordOfGod Iizuka has, at Sonic Boom 2012,]] confirmed that Blaze is in fact from the Sol Dimension, , and that ''[='=]06''[='=]s backstory for her should be ignored. He still didn't explain why she appeared to be from the future in ''Sonic 2006'', though at this point it's likely that [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain they no longer care either]].
* {{Foil}}: To Sonic.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: In Sonic Rush Adventure, she's the Melancholic, Sonic is the Choleric, Tails is the Phlegmatic, and Marine is the Sanguine.
* FriendlessBackground: In the ''VideoGame/SonicRushSeries''; in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'', however, she was Silver's childhood friend.
* FurryFemaleMane
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Her fear of heights doesn't stop her from being incredibly acrobatic during gameplay.
* GoodIsNotNice: A mild example (cold, detached loner) at first. Gets better with CharacterDevelopment
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple
* GrumpyBear: In ''Sonic Rush''. [[DefrostingIceQueen Toned down later on]], but still shows up from time to time, DependingOnTheWriter.
* HeldGaze: Can be seen doing this with Sonic a couple of times, first in ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}}'' and then later as Percival in Sonic and the Black Knight.
* HeroicLineage: The Jeweled Scepter, and the presumably the Sol Emeralds as well, have been guarded by Blaze's royal family for generations.
* HeroicSacrifice: In ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'', she [[spoiler:becomes Iblis's vessel and seals herself in another dimension, possibly dying in the procces.]]
* HoldingHands: With Sonic at the end of ''VideoGame/SonicRush''. They don't let go of each other until their dimensions tear them apart.
* HotBlooded: In the Rush series, and the spin-offs.
* ImageSong: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pRmZInUsKA Vela Nova]] is presented as her theme as of ''VideoGame/SonicAndTheBlackKnight'', although aside from the periodic "step by step," the song has no lyrics. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQ9YUyBkoYg Raisin' Me Up]], which is from her point of view towards Sonic, is a better example.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Rather aloof and a bit above it all, but [[ShrinkingViolet socially awkward and insecure]].
** She also becomes ''very'' defensive and snappy when Silver claims that he could have taken the robots out without her in ''VideoGame/SonicColors'', immediately claiming that she could have taken them out without him as well.
* IneffectualLoner: At first. She's still a bit of a loner after her CharacterDevelopment, but accepts help from others far easier.
* InformedAbility: We see less of her guarding the Sol Emeralds and more of her hopping over to Sonic's dimension to have fun.
* InformedAttribute: WordOfGod has said that she wears her purple cape to hide the fact that her body can control flames, which [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer she used to be]] [[BullyingADragon bullied for]], hinting that [[InformedDeformity her body may be scarred or otherwise affected]] by her powers; however, she will take it off in a pinch where [[PowerLimiter she has to use her powers]]. So far, this has not been seen in any game she has appeared in.
** Also, Blaze doesn't wear a cape. She wears a coat. A tailcoat to be exact, no pun intended.
** While she [[http://sonic.wikia.com/wiki/File:Blazewithcape_(1).png does wear a cape]] on a concept art for Sonic Rush, it's not purple, it's white (and more like a capelet anyway).
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Cream and Marine.
* IronicFear: She's an agile feline who can jump high and pull amazing aerial stunts, but she's terrified of heights. On the flip side, despite being a ''fire cat'', she averts CatsHateWater and is shown in VideoGame/MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympicGames to be a good swimmer.
** LogicalWeakness: Cats are usually afraid of heights in real life.
* IWorkAlone: Initially in Sonic Rush.
* JackOfAllStats: Like Amy, she is able to hit hard enough (thanks to her flames) and run substantially fast. And she also is classified as a Balanced Character in VideoGame/MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympicGames.
* JapanesePronouns: "Watashi".
* HurricaneKick: According to the boss defeat cutscenes in ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}}'', Blaze's "Axel Jump" works this way.
* {{Kid Hero}}ine: She's only 14.
* LadyOfWar: Her fighting style is always poised and elegant with graceful spins and twirls.
* LargeHam: She dips into this from time to time. An example is when Eggman refuses to return the Sol Emeralds.
-->'''Blaze:''' Hmmm, it seems you like to play with fire. Let me light up your fingers then!
* LeaveMeAlone: At first until she learns to accept Sonic and the others' offer of friendship.
* LeeroyJenkins: Shown near the end of VideoGame/SonicRushAdventure. When she gets angry, she has a tendency to blindly rush into battle. Fortunately, Sonic manages to calm her down.
* LethalChef: She's apparently [[http://i.imgur.com/ErQHj76.jpg not very good at cooking]].
* LikeBrotherAndSister: With Silver in Sonic '06. Due to Sonic '06 being erased from canon, the two are no longer childhood friends, being from different worlds[[note]]Blaze being from the Sol Dimension, and Silver being from the future of Sonic's world[[/note]]. Though they do briefly interact in the DS version of Sonic Colors, and the console versions of Sonic Generations.
* LittleMissBadass: She ''is'' only 14, after all.
* LonerTurnedFriend
* LoonyFriendsImproveYourPersonality: She TookALevelInKindness after making friends.
* MarriedToTheJob: She initially pushed people away in part because of her duties as Princess and Guardian of the Sol Emeralds; until she learned that carrying the world solely on her own shoulders was putting the world at more risk than allowing others to help.
* ModestRoyalty
* MulticoloredHair
* NoSocialSkills: In ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}}'', the other characters' overt friendliness clearly confused her, and she is known to be direct and blunt in her approach. She has since improved, though she is still somewhat brusque.
* NotSoDifferent: At times, she can be just as cocky as Sonic, if not more so.
* NotSoSimilar: Blaze is often similar to Knuckles due to both being both guardians of powerful artifacts (Knuckles with the Master Emerald and Blaze with the Sol Emeralds) and both have served as {{Foil}}s to Sonic where they [[FireForgedFriends started off as opponents before becoming friends of his]]. One key difference in that regard is that Knuckles antagonizes Sonic due to Eggman's manipulations while Blaze fought Sonic due to her stubbornness in accepting his help. Also, Blaze started off as an anti-social loner much like Knuckles, with the difference is Blaze's development from loner to friend was more express while Knuckles' development was rather subtle. As for temperaments, while the two are serious, Knuckles is rather hot-tempered while Blaze is more calm, but can get riled up on occasions.
* NotQuiteFlight: Can hover by igniting flames under her feet.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Cat]]: Although she was harsh about it, Blaze was the only one seriously worried about getting the Sol Emerald and getting back to her world because bad things could have happened if she didn't return on time.
* OppositesAttract: She and Sonic are different as night and day, but ultimately, their differences only strengthen their friendship. Quite possibly lampshaded in the Rush series, where it's said the Chaos and Sol Emeralds are like magnets; they can be attracted to each other, or repel each other. Sonic and Blaze's personalities can be described the same way, and considering their connections to the emeralds, this parallel seems to be intentional.
* ParentalAbandonment: In ''Sonic Rush'', she states that she was always alone due to her powers and having to guard to sol Emeralds. But in ''Sonic Rush Adventure'', we learn that she ''does'' have a living family.
* PerpetualFrowner: Before and during ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}}''; she was honestly surprised when Cream pointed out that she was smiling.
** In the ''Mario and Sonic'' series, she is portrayed as much more jovial and enthusiastic, frequently displaying a large wide open smile, suggesting she maybe has more a SeriousBusiness treatment of her duties rather than negative in personality.
* PersonalityPowers: Played with. Usually, unlike most [[PlayingWithFire fire-wielders]], she plays the BlueOni to her more reckless and emotional teammates, however, when [[RedOni things get tense]]...
* PlayingWithFire: Obviously; her name is ''[[MeaningfulName Blaze]]'' the Cat, after all. Oddly enough, she only seems to throw fireballs in her super form. In her normal form, she fights like Sonic, but fire.
* PowerOfFriendship: Had to [[AnAesop learn about this]] before she could utilize the power of the Sol Emeralds.
* PungeonMaster: Not as frequent as most examples of the trope, but she tends to let out a few fire-based puns.
* PurpleIsPowerful
* RedOniBlueOni: Blaze is usually calm and reserved, making her the Blue to Sonic's Red. However, when things get tense, they swap.
* RoyalRapier: Wields one as Percival in ''Sonic and the Black Knight''.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: She kicks people's asses into next week.
** {{Warrior Prince}}ss
* SatelliteCharacter: In ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'', her sole purpose seems to be being Silver's [[CoolBigSis sister-figure]].
* [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl Savvy Girl Energetic Guy]]: Savvy Girl to Sonic's Energetic Guy.
* ShipTease: With both Sonic & Silver at various points, especially the former.
* ShrinkingViolet: [[ColorMotif And she's purple, to boot!]]
* {{Socially Awkward Hero}}ine
* [[SpyCatsuit Sport]] ''[[IncrediblyLamePun Cat]]''[[SpyCatsuit suit]]: Her ''SonicRiders'' outfit.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Tends to be cold and aloof towards strangers due to shyness, but once she [[JustForPun warms up]] to someone she shows a [[DefrostingIceQueen caring, albeit awkward and brusque]], side to her.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes
* SuperMode: Burning Blaze; so far, she's the only female character in the entire series to have one.
* SuperSpeed: She's the fastest female character, and can actually give Sonic a run for his money in this department, in high heels no less.
* {{Tomboy}}
** TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Amy and Cream's girly girl.
* ThroughAFaceFullOfFur: Percival blushed when Sonic saved her in ''Black Knight''. Blaze also blushes in some cutscenes of ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}}''.
* TokenWholesome: Out of the anthro cast (especially the females), Blaze tends to cover the most fur, barring ''VideoGame/MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympicGames'' (where she [[BareYourMidriff bares her midriff]]).
* TomboyishPonytail
* TomboyPrincess
* TsurimeEyes
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: An early concept design of Blaze for ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' [[http://images.wikia.com/sonic/images/b/b8/71384729.png seen here]] suggests that she, rather than Shadow, was going to be Sonic's rival in that game.
* WhenSheSmiles: An InUniverse reaction. When Blaze smiles in "Sonic Rush," Cream acts very surprised and asks Blaze if she's really smiling.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: As shown in both ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}}'' titles, she has a case of acrophobia.
** Which is ''very odd'' considering what she has to do in levels.
** [[LogicalWeakness It actually makes sense, when you consider that cats are usually afraid of heights in real life.]]
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: She is very mature and intelligent for her age. However, she's also younger and less experienced than Sonic, and loses her cool more easily than he does.
* WomenAreWiser: Albeit DependingOnTheWriter. In ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' and ''SonicAndTheBlackKnight'', she is much more composed and "normal" acting than her other team members. In titles such as the ''VideoGame/SonicRushSeries'', however, she is a [[LargeHam hammy]] GrumpyBear.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Despite what their personalities would lead you to believe, Blaze is actually a year younger than Sonic. To be exact, Sonic is 15, and she's 14, the same age as Silver.

[[folder:Silver the Hedgehog]]

-->''"I will protect the future!"''

->'''Debut''': ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' ([[CanonDiscontinuity non-canon]])
->'''Canon Debut''': ''VideoGame/SonicRivals''

!!!!!!Voiced by Creator/DaisukeOno (Japanese), PeteCapella (English, 2006-2010), Creator/QuintonFlynn (English, 2010-present)

-->A telekinetic hedgehog from the future. Silver's timeline had been overrun by the "Flames of Disaster", also known as, Iblis one half of the time god, Solaris. He and his best friend Blaze spent their days trying to defend their home from Iblis, while finding a way to destroy it for good. One day, he is by Mephiles the Dark, the other half to Solaris and Iblis` opposite. Mephiles tells Silver that the only way to save his home is to return to the past and kill the one responsible for Iblis` release, our hero Sonic the Hedgehog. Silver jumps at the chance and he and Blaze go on a hunt for Sonic. Unsurprisingly, Mephiles was manipulating Silver to his own ends and after a brief fight with Shadow, he returns to the present to help Sonic rescue Princess Elise from Eggman. Later on, Sonic & Silver go their separate ways and Silver returns to the future with knowledge how to stop Iblis for good, sealing it away. When Silver is unable to seal Iblis within himself, Blaze opts to take his place and seemingly erases herself from existence telling Silver good luck. After Solaris` defeat, and the reset of time, Silver now comes from a new restored future where Blaze does not exist. He travels back in time to capture Eggman Nega and bring him back to the future, and later, to prevent Eggman Nega from summoning a fire demon named Ifrit, who has destroyed the world in the future.

-->Silver is idealistic, headstrong, and more than a bit naive. His one true desire is a place where people can be happy and free from harm, but he's pretty rash and quick to make judgments without all of the details. Like Knuckles, he's quick to believe whatever people tell him to achieve his goals. Silver is still a kindhearted person though and always has everyone's best interests at heart.

* AdorablyPrecociousChild: He's a little older than usual for this trope, but he is portrayed as a young boy who carries the world on his shoulders.
* {{Adorkable}}
* [[AnimeHair Anime Quills]]
** [[ShonenHair Shonen Quills]]
* {{Badass}}: Naivete aside, Silver truly is a force to be reckoned with due to his telepathy, to the point where he gives both Sonic & Shadow a run for their money.
* BadassAdorable
* CanonDiscontinuity: His debut in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'', due to the events of that game being erased. His first encounter with Sonic and friends was in ''VideoGame/SonicRivals''.
* CaptainObvious
-->'''Silver:''' I can't deflect lasers with my telekinesis.
* CarpetOfVirility: He has a tuft of fur much like Shadow's, but subverted in that he is less competent and mature than some other characters.
* CastHerd: Even after the events of Sonic 06 were erased, and being from a different dimension and time period than her, he's still seen with Blaze in the Olympics series, Colors DS, and Generations, for the sake of audience familiarity if nothing else.
* CatchAndReturn: His speciality.
* ConjoinedEyes
* {{Determinator}}: Much like Sonic, nothing will keep Silver down too long.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: In ''Sonic '06'', he fights against one half of the main villain (Iblis), whereas Shadow fights the other half (Mephiles).
* {{Expy}}: His role and character is somewhat similar to [[DragonBallZ Trunks]]. His entry in the game script even compares the two.
* EyesOfGold
* FireForgedFriends: With Sonic in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' after learning that Mephiles deceived him for thinking he's the Iblis Trigger. However, as the events of the game was [[{{Retcon}} erased]], Silver TookALevelInJerkass and he and Sonic clashed again in the ''Sonic Rivals'' series. It wasn't until ''Sonic Colors DS'' that the two got along again.
* {{Flight}}: By turning his telekinesis on himself, Silver can fly through the air.
* ForGreatJustice / ForHappiness: Sometimes he doesn't know what to do due to these two motives clashing; he wants people to be happy and to bring peace to his world, but he also wants to bring justice upon those who harm the future. Sometimes he leans more towards one side than the other.
* {{Friendly Rival|ry}}: Seems to take this role in later titles, particularly in his boss in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations''. He is giving Sonic all he's got, and they both seem to be enjoying it.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Phlegmatic.
* FutureBadass: Subverted; he's younger and less experienced than Sonic.
* GoodIsNotSoft[=/=][[GoodIsNotNice Nice]]: Because of his strong sense of justice, he holds this demeanor towards the evils that would harm his future, although this can lead him into conflict with the other characters whom he feels are preventing him from saving it, which may have been the case of his attitude in the ''Sonic Rivals'' series.
* [[HumansArePsychicInTheFuture Hedgehogs Are Telekinetic In The Future]]
* ImageSong: "[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Dreams of an Absolution]]".
* InformedFlaw: He's been stated to be [[HatesBeingAlone insecure when he's alone]], but he's never really seemed to be for more than a moment.
-->'''Silver:''' ''(having just arrived in the present, separated from Blaze)'' Blaze? Blaze! ''*looks around for a few moments*'' Now I must fight for the future!
* InspectorJavert: Played straight. He caused a ''lot'' of problems for Sonic in ''Sonic 06''. Said problems included nearly defeating him twice in a row, allowing Eggman to kidnap Elise ''yet again''. Ironically, Eggman kidnapping Elise those times actually might have turned out better in the short run, given what happened when Mephiles killed Sonic himself in front of Elise.
* InterfaceScrew: His special ability in ''Sonic Rivals'' has him using his powers to scramble the opponent's controls.
* JapanesePronouns: "Ore".
* KidFromTheFuture
* KidHero: He's fourteen years old, one year younger than Sonic, and the same age as Blaze.
* KnightTemplar: Although (mostly) kept in check by PetTheDog moments.
* LargeHam: "IT'S NO UUUSE!!!"
* LightIsGood: His dominant color is silver and is a hero at heart.
** LightIsNotGood: Falls under this during his KnightTemplar moments.
* MindOverMatter
* MundaneObjectAmazement
-->'''Silver:''' This looks so beautiful.
-->'''Amy:''' What? You mean this [[ShiftingSandLand desert]]?
-->'''Silver:''' Everything is so great here, isn't it? The sky is gorgeous, and everyone's happy...
* NiceGuy: He can be one when he isn't stressing out about some future crisis.
* OddFriendship: He's seen high-fiving [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Yoshi]] at the [[VideoGame/MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympicGames Winter games]].
* PerpetualFrowner: It's very rare to see Silver smile, although this may have to do with him taking his responsibility to save the future seriously. However, there are some instances where he does smile (e.g., in ''Generations'' where he is excited in fighting Sonic again as shown in the BloodKnight example above.)
* PsychicPowers: Aside from his Telekinesis, he can perform telepathy, but it's very limited and can only disorient foes at the most.
* RivalsTeamUp: Does this with Shadow and then Sonic in ''Sonic 2006'' after finding out the truth about Iblis.
* SkilledButNaive[=/=]UnskilledButStrong: A mix of both. Due to his young age, his skill in actual hand-to-hand combat is lacking and he can easily be manipulated, but his PsychicPowers make both of these relatively moot points.
* SpiritedCompetitor: His reaction towards getting challenged to a rematch in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'' shows elements of this.
-->'''Silver:''' This should be fun! Let's go, Sonic!
* SuperMode: Super Silver.
* SuperSpeed: Unlike Sonic and Shadow, Silver did not possess this ability in his debut, at least on foot. He could fly fast in cutscenes, but on foot and iin-game, he was rather slow. In later appearances, his running speed has been greatly increased, being comparable to Sonic and Shadow's.
* TeleportSpam: His Telport Dash.
* TimeTravel: Any plot where he appears will involve this.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler: His powers are ''much'' stronger in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'', to the point where he can ''compress tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of pounds of cars and debris into a massive ball that chases Sonic.'']]
* TookALevelInJerkass: In the ''Sonic Rivals'' games, he acts much ruder to everyone than in [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 his debut]]. He seems to have gotten better in his cameo in ''[[VideoGame/SonicColors Sonic Colors DS]]''.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Severely downplayed. He has no qualms killing Sonic to save his future, [[WhatTheHellHero but getting an earful from Amy]] made him question if it's truly right to kill someone for his own ends.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Was originally depicted as a {{green eye|s}}d mink named Venice. In fact, Silver was said to have gone through fifty concept designs before settling on his final look.

[[folder:Shade the Echidna]]

-->''"Please, I wish for a chance to prove myself, my new friend."''

->'''Debut''': ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles: The Dark Brotherhood''

Introduced in ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles'' as the commander of a mysterious group of warriors called the Marauders. Turns out the "Marauders" are actually a long-lost echidna clan called the Nocturnus. Shade wants to help the Nocturnus return to their homeworld, but when her boss explains that he intends to ''conquer'' the world, she objects and joins Sonic's side.

* ActionGirl
* {{Anti Villain}}ess: [[spoiler:At first...]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: She stands out as the toughest warrior of the Nocturnus Clan.
* TheAtoner: One half of the reason for her HeelFaceTurn--see below for the other.
* {{Badass}}: Though it happens offscreen, she managed to beat ''Knuckles'' in a straight up fight. Though it helped that he was tired out fighting the other Nocturnus.
* BadassAdorable: When not wearing her helmet.
* CanonForeigner
* CoolHelmet
* DarkActionGirl
* EasilyForgiven: Arguable example; she is made a trusted ally rather quickly, Knuckles even scolds you if you don't follow this trope with the branched dialogue options.
* {{Expy}}: Julie-Su: A member of a lost tribe of Echidnas known as the Dark Legion from the Archie Comics shares a lot of similarities with Shade. And the entire Nocturnus share similarities with the Dark Legion from the same comics. The most obvious example, in the comics the Dark Legion was sealed away in the Twilight Zone, while the Nocturnus were sealed away in the Twilight ''Cage''. Both were alternate dimensions that seem like pretty terrible places to be. WordOfGod says this is intentional.
* GirlOfTheWeek: She is suggested to be this to Knuckles by other characters, given they are the [[OnlyYouCanRepopulateMyRace opposite sex]] and the [[LastOfHisKind last of their kind]](ish).
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: She takes her helmet off earlier on in the game for TheReveal, but when she swaps sides she ditches it for good
* KnightTemplar: She sincerely wants to help her people escape the Twilight Cage and to that end she follows Ix's orders completely, even if it means hurting others. Subverted however when he reveals his true intentions for Earth.
* LaserBlade: Her Leech Blades.
* NotWhatISignedOnFor: She wished to return her clan to the outside world. When Ix let slip his plans to ''conquer'' said world, she turned against him.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Found out in a conversation branch in the start of Chapter 6 that she's really 4000 years old. Due to the YearInsideHourOutside physics of the Twilight Cage, however, she is likely not much older than the others physically.
* TheStoic: Somewhat; she's friendly enough with her comrades, but not exactly emotive.
* TeleportersAndTransporters: Her Warp Belt, which allows her to temporary leave the Twilight Cage and teleport from place to place.
* ThereIsAnother
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: During her Echinda Rush move with Knuckles.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Ix. [[BrokenPedestal Until he reveals his true intentions for Earth.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: She merely wants her people to return to Earth, though she abides by Ix's rather ruthless measures for doing so, going through with his invasion plans and brutal attempted execution of Sonic and Knuckles directly before he reveals his not-so well intentioned after-plans.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: If one subscribes to the hypothetical placement of the game as right before the "untold adventure" briefly shown directly at the beginning of ''Unleashed'', her absence in the series is virtually the only loose end.
* WomanInBlack


-->''"Want some chocolate?"''

->'''Debut''': ''SonicUnleashed''

!!!!!!Voiced by Creator/RyokoShiraishi (Japanese), Tony Salerno (English)

Sonic's little flying sidekick from ''SonicUnleashed''. Also known as [[spoiler:Light Gaia]].

* [[spoiler:BadassAdorable]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: As if it needed to be said, Chip's CrowningMomentOfAwesome comes when he [[spoiler:winds up and delivers a [[MegatonPunch friggin' haymaker of justice]] to [[EldritchAbomination Dark Gaia's]] face with the [[HumongousMecha Temple Guardian]].]]

-->''"Show [[spoiler:me your]] power... OR I sh...all [[spoiler:not]] ob...ey... [[spoiler:I represent all things, and]] Sha...ll [[spoiler:become Gizoid, the]] conqu...er[[spoiler:er of]] a...ll.."''

->'''Debut''': ''VideoGame/SonicBattle''

An ancient robot called a Gizoid that can learn to copy the traits and skills of others; Emerl is a unique model that can also absorb Chaos energies. Said to have wiped out the civilization that made him. However, he picks up better traits by hanging out with Sonic and his friends -- but has to be destroyed once his old programming kicks in.

Only appears in ''VideoGame/SonicBattle'', but has been referred to since. ''VideoGame/SonicAdvance 3'' has Robotnik build his own Gizoid, '''Gemerl''', that can merge with machines. ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles'' later explains that he and the rest of the Gizoids were made by the Nocturnus clan of echidnas.

* AIIsACrapshoot: Played with throughout ''VideoGame/SonicBattle''.
* AntiAntiChrist: To a degree. He was the most powerful of many robots with the power to level an entire civilization. Emerl, thanks to the bond he created with Sonic & co., goes on to help save the world... at the cost of his life.
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead[=/=]CameBackWrong: Gemerl is actually a rebuilt and reprogrammed Emerl. After being defeated, Tails gets rid of the program that made him so violently loyal to Eggman, effectively reviving Emerl.]]
* {{Badass}}
** BadassAdorable: He's a robotic PhysicalGod who can defeat even the toughest enemy and can level an entire civilzation, but his InnocentBlueEyes and kind-hearted nature make him so endearing. [[spoiler: And make his demise all the more [[TearJerker tragic.]]]]
** BadassAutomaton: Possibly one of the most powerful robots in the ''Sonic'' universe. Professor Gerald theorized that he'd able to destroy the earth single-handedly.
* BlowYouAway: His kick attack can stir up a small tornado.
* [[spoiler:BookEnds: At the beginning of ''VideoGame/SonicBattle'' Emerl is found deactivated on Emerald Beach by Sonic. In the ending of ''[[VideoGame/SonicAdvanceTrilogy Sonic Advance 3]]'', he's found deactivated by Cream and Vanilla on a beach which may or may not be Emerald Beach.]]
* TheCameo: His name appears as a random name for save files in VideoGame/SonicColors.
* CharacterCustomization: Due to his nature as a Gizoid, you can assign him any of the characters' movesets in ''VideoGame/SonicBattle'', even the {{Idle Animation}}s and color schemes.
* EvilCounterpart: It's hinted that he was this to Shadow in their past.
* {{Flight}}: Gemerl uses a jetpack to fly.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: His quote (As shown above)
* FrickinLaserBeams: Ultimate Gemerl.
* FromACertainPointOfView: The Nocturnus appear to have been drawn into the Twilight Cage when they got too powerful, thanks in no small part to their Gizoid armies -- and Emerl was the pinnacle of that technology, so he ''did'' lead to their downfall according to Professor Gerald's research.
* GoodCounterpart: To Metal Sonic in a sense as both are robots who can copy the powers of others.
* ICannotSelfTerminate
* InnocentBlueEyes: Has blue eyes and is quite innocent to the ways of the world.
* LightningBruiser: [[spoiler:When he awakens as the Gizoid, he has access to all of his Ultimate Skills, making him stronger and faster than anyone in the game.]]
* LikeASonToMe: Inverted with Amy and Rouge whom he calls "Mom and Mama Rouge" respectively.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Gemerl can fire missiles.
* MegaManning
* NiceGuy: Very much so.
* NoMouth
* NotSoDifferent: Shadow acknowledges that both he and Emerl are weapons, and spends much of the story trying to destroy the Gizoid. However, Sonic rebuffs this by saying he and Emerl are alike in a different way--both Emerl and Shadow have hearts, and couldn't willingly kill anyone.
* OneWingedAngel: Gemerl turns into an orb with flexible arms and lasers capable of stunning Super Sonic.
* OverrideCommand: After Emerl went out of control in the ARK and was sealed away, Professor Gerald, who couldn't find a way to destroy his core, installed a free-willed emotions-based AI program into him should Emerl ever awaken and act this way again. The phrase to activate it was "Bring hope to humanity", after Maria's [[FamousLastWords last words]].
* PhysicalGod: Designed to be this from the start.
* PowerCopying: His main superpower. Comes with the territory of being a Gizoid.
* PunnyName: it's a variation on "Emerald", which was originally one of the few things he took interest into.
** Also, some versions of ''Advance 3'' [[SpellMyNameWithAnS change Gemerl's name]] in "G-Mel", a pun on gemel, twin.
* [[spoiler: RedemptionEqualsDeath[=/=]FaceDeathWithDignity: The end of Sonic Battle has him accepting his fate for all of the damage he inadvertently caused when he was possessed by the Chaos Emeralds.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: In ''Anime/SonicX'', his eyes turn red when he goes beserk.
* RobotBuddy: To nearly the entire recurring cast, but mostly for Cream.
* RoboSpeak: In the Japanese version, his speech is written entirely in katakana, giving this effect. In English, it's averted, however.
* [[spoiler:SNKBoss: When you face Emerl awakened as the Gizoid, ''[[OhCrap he has access to every Ultimate Skill available]]''.]]
** [[spoiler: TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: As the player has their Skill Points {{cap}}ped at 500, there is ''no way'' a player could replicate this feat outside of hacking.]]
** [[spoiler: ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers: It's likely the Chaos Emeralds are giving the ability to have all the skills regardless of the Skill Point requirement.]]
* SuperpowerMeltdown: As shown in ''VideoGame/SonicBattle'' and [[spoiler:''[[VideoGame/SonicAdvanceTrilogy Sonic Advance 3]]'']], too much energy or too many copied abilities causes him to go berserk.
* ThirdEye: [[spoiler:When he awakens as the Gizoid, the eye on his forehead opens.]]
* TurnTheOtherCheek: After beating Eggman, he tells him that he's grateful to him for waking him up. [[spoiler: Which makes it all the more tragic when Eggman inadvertently drives him insane with power.]]
* [[spoiler: WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: When he's reawakened as the Gizoid after gaining emotions, and being unable to control the overwhelming power inside of him.]]
* WouldntHurtAChild[=/=]WouldntHitAGirl: Subverted, as he eventually does fight Cream, but he outright states that the worst thing he could ever do is make a girl cry.
* TheVoiceless: His ''Sonic X'' counterpart speaks only in beeps and buzzes.

[[folder:Princess Elise the Third]]

-->''"We give thanks for the blessed flames. May we always continue to have peace. Sun of Soleanna, guide and watch over us with your eternal light..."''

->'''Debut''': ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Sonic The Hedgehog]]'' (2006)

!!!!!!Voiced by Creator/MaayaSakamoto (Japanese), Creator/LaceyChabert (English), Creator/VeronicaTaylor ([[TheOtherMarty early voice clips]]).

The Princess of Soleanna who appeared as Sonic's ''human'' love interest (though the attraction is pretty much [[{{Starboarding}} one-sided]] on Elise's part) in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006''.

* TheCameo: Appears as a card in ''Sonic Rivals'' and in the credits of ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations''.
* DamselInDistress: She literally seems to be unable to go more than 5 minutes without being kidnapped by Eggman.
* DemonicPossession: Mild form: [[spoiler:She was used as the host to seal away Iblis, and it is heavily implied that several of her powers stemmed from Iblis being sealed within her. Other than that, however, Iblis doesn't seem to take any control over her.]]
* [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Everything's Worse with this Princess]]: Granted. Her presence, in many people's opinions, was detrimental to an already very flawed game.
* {{Foil}}: She could be considered the foil for Amy Rose; their only similarity being the fact that they have the hots for the titular character.
* HeyItsThatVoice: She is [[Creator/LaceyChabert voiced]] by [[TheWildThornberrys Eliza Thornberry]] and [[Film/MeanGirls Gretchen Wieners]]! In Japanese she's [[Creator/MaayaSakamoto voiced]] by [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Aerith]] and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Lightning]]!
* IJustWantToBeNormal
* InterspeciesRomance: [[{{Starboarding}} She had a crush on Sonic]], and the two share awkward "romantic" moments. While Sonic's own attitude is unstated in the game itself and ultimately left up to player choice to decide, WordOfGod dictates he apparently DOES have a thing for her as well.
* MacGuffinGirl: She's the vessel for the Flames of Disaster, Iblis.
* NeutralFemale
* TheOtherMarty: Creator/VeronicaTaylor had recorded lines for Elise before Creator/LaceyChabert replaced her in the final game.
* StepfordSmiler: Her father told her to not cry about anything. Turns out [[DemonicPossession there's a very good reason why she shouldn't cry]].
* StuntCasting: She's voiced by Creator/LaceyChabert.
* TrueLovesKiss: Used in conjunction with the Chaos Emeralds to revive Sonic. Its reception was...less than pleasant.


-->''"O Master, what is thy wish?"''

-->'''Debut''': ''[[VideoGame/SonicStorybookSeries Sonic and the Secret Rings]]''

!!!!!!Voiced by: Mai Nakahara (Japanese), Bella Hudson (English)

The "Genie of the Ring", who enlists Sonic for aid in stopping the Erazor Djinn.

* BackFromTheDead: She's killed by the Erazor Djinn prior to the FinalBoss, but resurrected afterwards by Sonic's first wish on Erazor's lamp.
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: She dies in Sonic's arms, tearfully begging for his forgiveness. [[HeGotBetter She gets better]].
* HeroicSacrifice: She takes the bullet for Sonic when Erazor is prepared to sacrifice him.
* ItsAllMyFault: She blames herself for Sonic's [[TheWorseningCurseMark condition throughout the game]], because Sonic took the flaming arrow that Erazor meant for her.
* LiteralGenie: When Sonic asks for "a few" handkerchiefs, she ends up summoning enough to literally bury him.
* OurGeniesAreDifferent: She's bound to a ring rather than a magic lamp, and is limited to simple wishes by her own admission.
* SympathyForTheDevil: After Sonic traps Erazor in his lamp for all eternity, Shahra cries for him.
* TakingTheBullet: She jumps in the way of Erazor's sword strike to save Sonic.

[[folder:Professor Pickle]]

-->''"How dare they call this culinary concoction food? Look here, do you see this sorry excuse for a sandwich? The bread should be no less than 3/4 of an inch thick. Upon it, one tablespoon of mayonnaise and a pinch of black pepper. The contents FRESH cucumber sliced THINLY if you please! Am I quite right, Tails?''"


!!!!!!Voiced by Cho (Japanese), Creator/DanGreen (English)

A well known professor from Spagonia. His knowledge helps Sonic over the course of the story.

* AbsentMindedProfessor
* BigOlEyebrows
* CollectionSidequest: He loves souvenirs from all around the world. Collecting them all nets you an achievement/trophy.
* CoolOldGuy
* HeyItsThatVoice: You might recognize his Japanese voice as [[Manga/OnePiece a certain gentleman skeleton musician]].
** His English voice is also shared with Mephiles, Knuckles, and the Apotos Ice Cream Guy.
* MrExposition
* MeaningfulName: "Pickle" refers to his love of cucumbers.
* PickyEater: He's very particular about how he likes his food, as his quote above demonstrates.
* PunnyName: The Archie comics give him a first name, Dillon.
* SkewedPriorities: He's more upset about Eggman's badly done Cucumber Sandwiches than his own safety when Sonic, Tails and Chip rescue him.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Cucumber sandwiches, if made right. In fact, he was more worried about how cucumber sandwiches ''should'' be made rather than his own safety when he was captured by Dr. Eggman.

[[folder:Marine the Raccoon]]

-->''"I don't have what it takes. I don't think I can do all this adventuring on my own. But I'm not going to give up. I need to keep trying harder and harder until I can do it!"''

->'''Debut''': ''[[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries Sonic Rush Adventure]]''

An excitable and hyperactive young raccoon from Blaze's dimension who dreams of having epic adventures.

* AttentionDeficitOohShiny
* UsefulNotes/AustralianAccent: In the English version, she speaks with an exaggerated one.
* BrattyHalfPint: Much to everyone's chagrin. Blaze calls her out on it near the end of ''Sonic Rush Adventure'':
-->'''Blaze:''' Since you don't seem to understand what we're getting at, I'll just say it: [[WhamLine You're a nuisance!]]
* BunglingInventor: She improves with this on her second attempt to build a ship, managing to build a waterbike at the end of the game.
* CheerfulChild: Very much so.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass [[BadassAdorable Adorable]]: She managed to [[spoiler:get the Jewelled Sceptre back whilst being held hostage and seems to have some kind of power that she uses towards the end of the game.]]
** And in the Archie Comics. Despite initialy proving useless in helping Shadow and Blaze against Metal Sonic, she manages to ''finish him off with a well aimed shot from her ship's cannons!'' However, in doing so [[NiceJobBreakingItHero she destroyed the dimensional buffer and Shadow's only way home]], but hey, the kid gets an A for effort at least.
* DidNotDoTheBloodyResearch: The English-language version of the game gives her an Australian dialect. At one point she uses the term "bugger", meaning that the UK version of the game had to be awarded a 12+ age rating, despite otherwise being a totally innocuous platformer suitable for all ages. Oops.
* DistaffCounterpart[=/=]{{Expy}}: To Tails. Tails was even a raccoon at one point in design.
** And to a degree, she's one to Sonic. Both are free-spirited adventure lovers, both have a bit of an ego to them, and both have a tendency to be [[LeeroyJenkins Leeroy Jenkinses]].
* FragileFlower: She's a CheerfulChild by default, but she can easily be driven to tears.
* GenkiGirl: And how!
* GirlishPigtails: Highlighting her childish personality.
** And they're shaped like ''boomerangs''.
* TheIdiotFromOsaka: In the Japanese version, she speaks in the KansaiDialect.
* ImpossiblyLowNeckline
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Implied a few times in ''[[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries Sonic Rush Adventure]]'' that the LeeroyJenkins act is mask to hide her insecurites and show everyone she can take care of herself. By the end of the game, she finally acknowledges her flaws and vows to grow up.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Blaze.
* InterspeciesAdoption: She was raised by koalas and picked up her Australian accent from them.
* [[spoiler:KiAttacks[=/=]MakingASplash: No one's really sure which due to the DS's limited graphics, but she has some kind of power that she uses to save Blaze and Sonic near the end of ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}} Adventure'']].
* [[KidHero Kid Heroine]]: She's seven years old, one year younger than Tails.
* JustAKid: Marine herself is aware of this, [[LampshadeHanging noting that]] nobody would believe that she [[spoiler:retrieved the Jewelled Sceptre]] because she's a kid.
* KidAppealCharacter
* LeaderWannabe: She considers herself the leader in ''Sonic Rush Adventure'', but no one else does.
* LeeroyJenkins: Though she means well, she constantly rushes off to adventure and has to be rescued multiple times. Though at some points in the game, this actually helps the gang as they manage to find Whisker's hideout when she destroyed the statue and [[spoiler: she manages to get the Jeweled Sceptre from him when he captured her.]]
* TheLoad: Seen as this through most of ''[[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries Sonic Rush Adventure]]''.
* MotorMouth: ''Yes.''
* MouthyKid
* MulticoloredHair
* NeatFreak: According to her Sonic Channel profile.
* NiceGirl: Her annoying traits can overshadow this part, but she really is this when you get to know her.
* OutOfFocus: Since her sole appearance in ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}} Adventure'', she has only been referenced by other characters.
* ParentalAbandonment: Her parents are nowhere in sight. The Coconut Crew appear to be the closest she has to a ParentalSubstitute.
* PluckyComicRelief
* PluckyGirl
* RascallyRaccoon
** {{Youkai}}: Just as Tails was partially based on a {{Kitsune}}, she was also probably based on a Tanuki.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Thinks she's the "captain", and doesn't listen to anyone else. [[CharacterDevelopment She vows to grow up a bit]] in the end.
* SmallTownBoredom: Bored of life on Windmill Island, she really wants to go adventuring and [[JumpedAtTheCall snatches the chance]] when Sonic and Tails wind up on Seagull Beach.
* TagalongKid
* {{Tomboy}}
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Ghosts?]]
