@Mr Mallard: As much as Archie would like to enthasise quite the opposite for Sonsal in Mobius X Years Later.
Seriously, I could see the relationship maybe working, but I really think they had to skew Sonic in fanfic manner with the whole 'tied down with the monarchy and kids' story.
Largely what put me off the couple (and to an extent the character herself) is the writers' overenthasis on how perfectly she 'completes' Sonic, especially since she had the potential to be a much more natural foil for him.
Well, Sonic is capable of attraction, he did give a whistle at Lumina. Of course, this was the same game where Amy said "Forget about Sonic, just look at my clothes!" so take that one with a grain of salt. Then we have Tiara, who from what we can gather from interviews and concept art was intended to be more of a tomboyish foil.

But the problem is the comics play her positive ones from drama.
My main beef with her character is that she is designed to be primarily Sonic's Straight Man, and since she is pretty much his polar opposite, it means consistantly playing what makes Sonic 'Sonic' in a negative light and making him more incompetent compared to her (eg. rather than being cocky but still resourceful and quick thinking, he's just pointlessly reckless). It would have worked if the foiling was more even sided, and Sonic at least got occasional moral superiority over Sally's more finicky, overcautious qualities, but as is, making them a couple means defying what makes Sonic himself.
I can stand Amy and Mina and whatever since they at least don't skew Sonic's personality coupled with him nearly as much, or at the very least Amy isn't portrayed as right for wanting to change Sonic.
Jet is a petty crook at best, though very rivalistic. Under the right stipulations, he has potential especially as he is shown to be one of very few individuals actually capable of getting under Sonic's skin.
Seriously, the cutscene where he cheats him out of victory? It is so rare to see the games Sonic seeving with rage.
