I liked Satam Sally over Archie Sally since she did at least have some
flaws and whimsical qualities, it was just rarely put into depthful execution outside comic relief (eg. her snit fits at Sonic). Archie Sally doesn't have quite as much of a pedestal over Sonic, but she also seems a lot duller.
I agree Satam Sonic just bordered too far into Jerk Jock
territory at times, dumb, ridiculously narcissistic and occasionally bullying to his teammates. Oddly Aosth Sonic, despite being practically the same mould, was much more likeable, likely due to more positive foils (Aosth Sonic had a surrogate little brother, Satam Sonic had a 'babysitter' and an Acceptable Target
to his bullying tendancies).
I don't mind Modern Sonic, at least in the games (Sonic X
Sonic is a bland Ace, while Archie Sonic comes off as odiously self righteous at times). He's not the most three dimentional character, but he's approachable and endearing.
