The Main Five
Sonic the Hedgehog
Power: Super SpeedThe mainest of the main characters, he was the first one to get a story arc centered around him. An optimistic guy with a thirst for adventure and a swanky bi-plane to boot, he’s got a heart as big as his belly and a willingness to help others that has yet to be matched. He answers questions as positively as possible.
- Disappeared Dad: Sonic’s father is deceased. It’s unknown how he died.
- Distressed Dude: Rosy had to rescue him from Metal Sonic at one point.
- Enemy Within: Super Sonic
- Fat Idiot: Subverted
- The Hero
- Nice Guy
- Nice Jewish Boy: Who would’ve thought that Sonic would be such a good Jewish character?
- Weirdness Magnet: Though the planet he lives on seems weird enough already…
- You Have to Have Jews: There doesn’t seem to be any reason for Sonic to be Jewish other than a funny conversation about bad comic art.
Miles “Tails” Prower
Power: FlightSonic’s plucky little brother who lives with him rather than with the rest of Sonic’s family. He is very innocent and kind, but there seems to be some tension between him and Sonic that has yet to be resolved. He answers as many questions as he can, but if he doesn’t understand the question he’ll give it to Sonic.
- Child Prodigy: Evidently, he still has his gadget expertise and his affinity for airplanes.
- Children Are Innocent: Sometimes he just doesn’t understand the question he’s given.
- Distressed Dude: Metal Sonic kidnapped him to learn the true meaning of Hanukkah.
- Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal
- Happily Adopted: He seems pretty happy in a family of hedgehogs.
- Intelligence Equals Isolation: Implied by how lonesome Tails is in this question.
- The Lancer
Knuckles the Echidna
Power: GeokinesisThe grumpy guardian of Angel Island, he guards the Chaos Emeralds from falling into the wrong hands. He takes his job extremely seriously and doesn’t seem to be fluent in English (or whatever language they’re speaking…). He prefers to answer with actions rather than words.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: Presumably, if those bandages on his arms are any indication.
- The Big Guy
- Cool Shades: When asked why he’s “so gangsta”.
- Grumpy Bear
- Last of His Kind: There doesn’t seem to be any more echidnas around.
- Real Men Wear Pink: He knitted his own hat.
- Scary Black Man: He’s got the darkest (visible) skin of all the characters, and he can be pretty frightening when he’s angry.
- Walking Shirtless Scene
Rosy the Rascal
Power: Tracking SkillsA much more tomboyish interpretation, Rosy the Rascal seems to have all of the coolness factor of Modern Sonic that couldn’t be utilized with the actual blue dude with a ‘tude. She has many hobbies and has a sporty flair about her that gives her a certain charm. She only scratches the surface when she answers questions, and there’s usually more than what she’s saying to the answer.
- Action Girl: She saved Sonic from Metal Sonic, for one.
- The Chick
- Damsel in Distress
- Drop the Hammer: She won it after finishing in the top 3 of an Ex-World Grand Prix.
- Intergenerational Friendship: Two ways; she’s at least twice as old as her friend Cream, but she’s less than half the age of her sparring buddy Shadow.
- The Runaway: She seems to be actively avoiding her mother.
- Short Tank: Her more tomboyish traits are balanced by some remaining femininity.
Dr. Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik
Power: Super IntelligenceA more human interpretation of ol’ Eggy, Eggman here has a solid, non-Generic Doomsday Villain goal and a meaningful history to match. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t forget that the place he’s trying to build his theme park on doesn’t have any objections. He used to be a College Math Teacher, so he offers the most detailed answers to questions.
- Anti-Villain: He’s not really a bad guy, he just makes a lot of bad decision.
- Ambiguously Human: Well, he’s an Overlander, so this trope is applied rather loosely, but he does seem to share more similarities with the robot characters than with other Overlanders.
- Enemy Mine
- Friendly Enemy: Sonic seems hesitant to invite him to his next birthday party, but they’re on very nice terms either way.
- Man Child: He has an air of childishness to just about everything he does.
- Take Over the World: Averted, as he thoroughly Deconstructs the notion as a rather foolish idea.
Vector the Crocodile
Power: Super ImaginationA fatherly crocodile with a lot of gold on his person, he loves his family to pieces and is pretty competent in detective work. He spends most of his time keeping his family from killing each other. As he is used to simplifying his explanations for his kids, he’s very good at giving simple, easy to understand answers.
- Happily Married: Or he would be, if it were legal, to Espio.
- Private Detective: It’s his job.
- Magician Detective: His power can presumably be used to gather information from sources otherwise unreachable.
- Standard '50s Father: He doesn’t appear to be from the 50’s, but he fits the trope all the same.
- Straight Gay: No stereotypical mannerisms, really.
Espio the Chameleon
Power: InvisibilityA rather quiet and reserved man of very small stature. He doesn’t seem to take the initiative on a lot of things and can be rather passive. He usually only answers questions in one-word text answers, but when he answers more thoroughly he tends to use visual shorthand.
- Culture Equals Costume: Espio doesn’t seem to dress any differently than he would if he were still in Shamar.
- Straight Gay: No particular behavior as a result of being gay.
- The Quiet One: Doesn’t like talking to strangers. He seems to talk more to those he knows personally.
Power: Super StrengthA young, hyperactive and annoying boy who is under the care of Espio. He used to have difficulties with his strength before Espio disciplined him. He answers questions with facts.
- Does Not Know His Own Strength: In his backstory; he’s since learned how to control it.
- Happily Adopted
- Has Two Daddies
- Muscles Are Meaningless: His limbs are about as thick as a leek.
- Nerd Glasses
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He’s smaller than Cream, and she’s pretty dang small.
Cream the Rabbit
Power: Super ImaginationA sweet but airy little girl with an uncontrolled power. She tends to creep people out and worry them with her incomprehensible visions. She answers questions as best she can, but they might not be very accurate.
Silver the Cyborg
Power: PsychokinesisA small, shy boy from the future who seems to have a very long stint of poor luck in regards to… just about everything he does, actually. He’s actually kinda stupid when you think about it. He’s more likely to react to a question than answer it.
- Adorkable: He dons a hat to relate to non-robots better, then draws on it with crayon to make it less frightening.
- Adorably Precocious Child: He acts a lot younger than he is in the games.
- Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Averted.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Is somehow responsible for the Gaia Cataclysm.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Only his human portraits.
Blaze the Queen
Power: PyrokinesisA Queen from the future who was the only source of heat for miles. It is unknown why she came back from the future, but she now acts as Silver’s caretaker. She is kind of rude and biting, so be cautious when asking her questions.
- Big Sister Instinct: Silver sees her as a big sister figure.
- Mama Bear: She can be kind of protective to Silver.
- Not So Above It All: She plays pretend with Silver.
- Tsundere: Has a crush on Sonic that she’s not willing to admit to.
- The Woman Wearing the Queenly Mask: “I had to be there for anyone who needed me.”
Power: Master of DisguiseInitially created to capture and replace Sonic the Hedgehog, a change in plans halfway through led to him never replacing Sonic in favor of keeping him contained. That didn’t do any wonders for his mental health. Metal Sonic tends to overreact and be humorous while answering questions.
- Beware the Silly Ones: While he may be rather silly, he’s kidnapped both Sonic and Tails on different occasions.
- Cloudcuckoolander: In short; his favorite flavor of frisbee is Satanic Death Christ.
- I Just Want to Be You: He wants to be the Real Sonic so very, very badly.
- Insane Troll Logic: He keeps trying to claim to be the real Sonic, with extremely faulty logic to prove why.
Shadow the Stranger
Power: Time TravelA very moody and brooding character who doesn’t talk much. He still has trouble coming to terms with his past and is being haunted by his memories at almost all hours. He’s more likely to answer your question if he has spoken to you before or if you’re not anonymous while asking.
- Anti-Hero: He’s probably the one that blew up the Black Comet.
- Cowboy Cop: Evokes this feel in his dress and occupation. He even has a motorcycle stand-in for a horse.
- The Gunslinger: His main form of combat is the use of guns.
- The Quiet One: It’s a character trait.
Rouge the Bat
Power: Super HearingA skilled and womanly espionage agent for the Guardian Units of Nations, Rouge can blend into any situation and get just about any kind of info out of any kind of person. She’s also rather flirtatious and sassy when she wants to be. She gives easily understandable answers out of courtesy, but sometimes her answers are censored for revealing too much classified information.
- Impossible Hourglass Figure
- Muggle Born of Mages: She was born without wings, but it doesn’t seem to bother her anymore.
- The Noseless
Power: HammerspaceA rogue robot under the command of G.U.N.. He doesn’t seem to emote much beyond a sheer disinterest in whatever is going on. If you want to know something about Omega, ask Rouge instead.
Jet the Hawk
Power: Master StrategistA slimeball and attention-begger who insists he’s going to win the next Ex-World Grand Prix. He doesn’t answer questions.
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Well, Extreme Gear in this case, but you get the idea.
- Braids, Beads and Buckskins: He used to look like he was wearing a Plains Indians war bonnet.

- Gentle Giant: He doesn’t seem to act particularly antagonistic to anyone.
- Raised by Grandparents: Old Man Owl is his grandfather.
Wave the Swallow
Power: TechnopathAn elegant girl of purple, she doesn’t look anything at all like the rather boyish girl she truly is. She doesn’t answer questions.
