Fanfic: Strawberry Meets Sonic The Hedgehog
Strawberry meets Sonic the Hedgehog
is a crossover fanfiction between Sonic the Hedgehog, Strawberry Shortcake and Tron: Legacy (the latter being introduced in the fourth chapter). The story follows the adventures of three Mobian brothers, Sonic, Shadow and Silver in a place called "the Berry Bitty City", which the evil Dr. Eggman tries to conquer. When Sonic's new girlfriend, Strawberry, manages to repair a weapon once used by Sonic's father, James the Hedgehog, everything changes. The Hedgehog borthers and their new friends gain access to a digital world called "the Grid". More threats to show up and a new quest is set: to find James and, later, to ensure the safety of both the Grid and the Earth.
Tropes found in the story
- Alternate Universe: Amy isn't in love with Sonic, Strawberryland is a country and Berry Bitty City is located in it, Rinzler is Tron's reprogrammed copy, not Tron himself, Sonic can still turn into the Werehog (although he doesn't) and Mobians are left handed (after all, Sega just had to take away Shadow's left handedness in The Black Knight, so here comes the payback)
- Back from the Dead: Chip and his dark counterpart, Dark Gaia, who have only appeared in Sonic Unleashed, return in the third chapter. However, they were not confirmed to be dead in the Sonic continuity.
- Boy Meets Girl: Sonic first develops a crush on Raspberry Torte, and then on Strawberry Shortcake. Shadow and Silver also end up dating Blueberry Muffin and Cherry Jam, respectively.
- Bruce Lee Clone: Senya Rose, Amy's older sister, is considered a Bruce Lee-insipired character, mainly because of her fighting style, Jeet Kune Do. It was also revealed that she is of Chinese descent.
- Disappeared Dad: The chapter From father to son presents the backstory of James' disapearance. Later in the same chapter, the main characters accidentally travel to the Grid and hope that they'll run into James. They also learn of his possible location from two of his friends who are also looking for him. Later, in the chapter Collision of worlds, James shows up and explains exactly why he disappeared.
- Joke Character: Huckleberry Pie is a wannabee karateka, the typical Mc Dojo student. This is best shown in the second part of Collision of worlds, where he takes part in the most comical fight scene in the story, getting beaten comically by Sonic, Shadow and then Silver. Senya dubs this fight "The Loser trilogy". This might be because Strawberry Shortcake fans speculate that Huck and Strawberry have a crush on each other in the Strawberry Shortcake series, so the Sonic part of the story had to put Huck in his place.
