* SpoiledSweet: Despite coming from an extremely rich family, she's a sweet and innocent kid.


* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Defied and averted. Sonic very much has a family, and is ''furious'' at his friends for thinking that he has a tragic backstory like almost everyone else.
* FireForgedFriends: With the rest of the main cast. It's also deconstructed; aside from learning how to fight together extremely well, none of them know each other beyond that. It becomes a major reason why Sonic agrees to reveal his gang's origins to Silver.

* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Defied {{Defied|Trope}} and averted.{{Averted|Trope}}. Sonic very much has a family, and is ''furious'' at his friends for thinking that he has a tragic backstory like almost everyone else.
* FireForgedFriends: With the rest of the main cast. It's also deconstructed; {{Deconstructed|Trope}}; aside from learning how to fight together extremely well, none of them know each other beyond that. It becomes a major reason why Sonic agrees to reveal his gang's origins to Silver.


The blue hedgehog hero with an attitude.
----
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: A firm believer in this, which has a partial involvement in why he believes in [[ThouShaltNotKill killing his foes]]. While he's fine with hanging out with people with gray morality, he opposes acts that appear outwardly villainous, even though they were made for a good reason,
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Defied and averted. Sonic very much has a family, and is ''furious'' at his friends for thinking that he has a tragic backstory like almost everyone else.
* FireForgedFriends: With the rest of the main cast. It's also deconstructed; aside from learning how to fight together extremely well, none of them know each other beyond that. It becomes a major reason why Sonic agrees to reveal his gang's origins to Silver.
* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: Why he never decides to kill Eggman, despite the very long list of bad things he had done. He doesn't want to become another Shadow.
* WhatTheHellHero: On the giving and receiving ends.
** Fang calls Sonic out for [[WhatMeasureIsAMook attacking his opponents, never considering they had lives of their own, and not really thinking of the consequences]].
** Sonic later calls out Knuckles when he discovers the absolute squalor the Chaotix had been living in, after Knuckles kicked them out of Angel Island for breaking the Master Emerald several times with their antics. Knuckles never considered where the Chaotix would land...



* BadassAdorable: Tails [[ContinuityNod remembers the time when he fought]] [[VideoGame/TailsAdventure the Kukku armada]] and [[VideoGame/TailsSkyPatrol a cart-riding witch]].
* {{Foil}}: To Shadow. Tails is [[WeakButSkilled an intelligent fox who fights with technology and wits]], while Shadow [[UnskilledButStrong focuses on physical attacks and Chaos Control]]. [[spoiler:They were also artificial creations that went in opposite directions, personality-wise - Tails became an outgoing and cheerful kid, while Shadow became a reclusive shut-in]].



The last remaining echidna, and guardian of the Master Emerald.
----
* CompleteImmortality: [[spoiler:He turns out to be immortal, thanks to the Ancient Walkers' decision to try see if the echidnas deserve a second chance]].
* LastOfHisKind: Like in game canon, but it's justified here. [[spoiler:His father, Locke, tried using Chaos Control to ascend everyone ''but'' the echidna his wife left him for, essentially dooming the entire species. The Ancient Walkers had already given up on the echidnas at this point, but Athair's attempts to save his people convinced Aurora to convince the Ancient Walkers to intervene and give them a second chance. The result was Knuckles being the only surviving echidna]]. Because he's the last echidna however, Knuckles keeps hanging around Sonic and co. because he's the only friends he has, [[WithFriendsLikeThese even when they're being jerks to him]].
* LiteralMinded: Doesn't understand slang, innuendos, etc. that the rest of the gang throws around, or [[ObliviousToLove Rouge's flirting]]. Justified, as he spent all his life on Angel Island with Tikal for company.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero:
** His decision to kick the Chaotix out of Angel Island for their destructive antics turns out to be this in the long run, as he never considered ''where'' they would land. [[spoiler:The Chaotix ends up living in such squalor that Mighty had to resort to prostituting himself to make ends meet]].
** [[spoiler:His blowing the lid on Vanilla being a mafia donna to Cream, thinking that Cream would take it as well as she did with the others' tragic pasts, wasn't a very good idea either]].
* ObliviousToLove: He doesn't get Rouge's flirtations at all. She ends up stomping away and kicking trees in a rage, and he doesn't understand why she's even mad at him.
* SinsOfOurFathers: [[spoiler:One of three possibilities that Tikal comes up with to justify the Ancient Walkers allowing Knuckles's existence - he will be burdened with the actions of his family and his ancestors. The other two were StartingANewLife (being able to live without the negative teachings his ancestors grew up on), and going through a SecretTestOfCharacter (rejecting the vices of his kind and proving to the Ancient Walkers that echidnas weren't a completely lost cause)]].
* StartingANewLife: [[spoiler:Technically he's doing this for the entire echidna race. The Ancient Walkers wanted to see if the echidnas could live without the negative teachings that influenced their ancestors. With Knuckles's [[BrokenPedestal reaction]] to learning of his ancestors' crimes, it seems to be working]].
* StatingTheSimpleSolution: Knuckles wonders why Eggman Nega goes through all the trouble of undoing their origins if he can just simply kill them when they were kids. [[spoiler:This [[{{Foreshadowing}} foreshadows]] whether or not Silver is lying about the main premise of the story until Chapter 14]].
* TookALevelInDumbass: Poor Knuckles is more idiotic than his game counterpart. Justified, as he lived in isolation on Angel Island for years while never going to school.
* WhatTheHellHero: Receives one from Sonic for kicking the Chaotix out of Angel Island [[spoiler:which resulted in Mighty becoming a male escort]].



A female pink hedgehog who's madly in love with Sonic.
----
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:Her father ran off with another woman, causing her mother to take up dead-end jobs and swear off men completely, teaching Amy to do the same. Then, while visiting a fortune teller to see if she would be with her crush, Sonic, she accidentally breaks the crystal ball, causing the fortune teller to curse Amy with in-universe {{Flanderization}} for the rest of her life]].
* RealityEnsues: [[spoiler:Granted, it was caused by a fortune teller's curse, but Amy's constant stalking and pursuing of Sonic finally leads to the object of her affection deciding to file a restraining order against her]].



----
* ChildrenAreInnocent: The gang tries to enforce this by keeping any sordid details out of hearing range, or by refusing to tell her on the basis that she's too young to hear it. [[spoiler:Then Knuckles reveals her mother is a mafia donna...]]
* HalfHumanHybrid: Her mother is a rabbit. [[spoiler:Her father is '''''Dr. Eggman''''']].
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:To Shadow, when they weren't such in the games. Gerald Robotnik created Shadow, thus putting him in the same generation as Eggman's parents. Eggman is Cream's father. This would make Shadow Cream's great-uncle]].
* NiceGirl: Cream is as sweet as she can be. For one, she knew that Chocola Chao was a changeling used by the Goblin King to replace Cheese, but she showered him with love anyway, which leads to Chocola betraying the Goblin King and becoming a chao full-time just so he could have the happy life he never had before.
* SpoiledSweet: Despite coming from an extremely rich family, she's a sweet and innocent kid.
* RealityEnsues:
** Having [[TableSpace a large table]] at home means having to shout at each other just to strike up conversations, so she just sits next to Vanilla instead.
** [[spoiler:Vanilla wouldn't really let her 6-year-old daughter fight anything on her own, let alone a dangerous, world domination-crazy man who turns out to be her ''biological father''. So she hired a bunch of {{Stealth Expert}}s (including an elephant!) as bodyguards so Cream would stay safe at all times]].



----
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:To Cream, when they weren't such in the games. Gerald Robotnik created Shadow, thus putting him in the same generation as Eggman's parents. Eggman is Cream's father. This would make Shadow Cream's great-uncle]].
* CoolUncle: [[spoiler:After learning of his familial relations to Cream, he evolves into this. Cream takes to calling him [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls "Grunkle"]] Shadow for the rest of the story]].



A flirtatious bat who moonlights as a jewel thief. She makes up Team Dark together with Shadow and Omega.
----
* RagsToRiches: Amy assumes Rouge's origins to be of this nature, because she's a jewel thief looking for treasure. [[spoiler:Later averted; she was never rich in the first place, as she's a princess and heir to the powerful Fangsylvanian kingdom. What Rouge is actually getting rich in is ''skills and experience'']].
* KingIncognito: [[spoiler:She's really a Fangsylvanian princess, who embarked on a journey outside her kingdom to gain skills and experience in order to succeed her mother, Queen Blanc, one day]].
* ReallyRoyaltyReveal: [[spoiler:She's the daughter and heir of Blanc, the immortal vampire queen of Fangsylvania]].
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler:Due to being immortal vampire royalty, she hasn't aged a day, though mentally she still has a lot to learn before becoming queen]].
* TomatoInTheMirror: A quite literal example. [[spoiler:Through a mirror's reflection, she learns that ''she'' is what Blanc considers her greatest treasure of all]].



----
* JustAMachine: Inverted. Save for Shadow and Rouge, who are his friends, Omega has great contempt for all organic lifeforms. [[InLoveWithYourCarnage He does makes exceptions, though]].
* NoIndoorVoice: HE SPEAKS IN ALL CAPS.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: When Rouge starts having doubts [[spoiler:about being a better vampire queen than her mother, Omega assures her that she will be a better one]].



A young time-traveler from the future, who persuades Sonic and his gang to tell the stories of their origins.
----
* BitchInSheepsClothing: [[spoiler:The reason why he traveled to the past to get Sonic and his gang to reveal their origins? It's so he could receive higher grades than his classmates, who are ''the children of the main cast'', and lord it over them.]].
* {{Jerkass}}: [[spoiler:He cheated on his history report by going back in time and manipulated Sonic and his friends to reveal their origin stories to him with a bogus excuse. When this resulted in getting higher grades than his classmates, who are children of Sonic's gang, he proceeded to lord it over them, bragging that he knew their parents better than they did. [[ButterflyOfDoom This leads to said children, who are insecure teenagers living in the shadows of their parents, feeling too emotionally burned out to fight Gizomochao 200 years later]]]].



A human, and a very recurring BigBad in the ''Sonic'' series.

[[folder:Vanilla the Rabbit]]

to:

[[folder:Vanilla [[folder:Vanilla]]
Cream's kindhearted mother.
----
* AdaptationalVillainy: [[spoiler:Vanilla in
the Rabbit]]game canon is the gentle and loving mother of Cream. Here she's a ruthless (though still loving) mafia don, something that she keeps secret from even her daughter]].
* BrokenPedestal: [[spoiler:Everyone has trouble reconciling the loving mother they knew her as, with the ruthless mafia boss she is in secret once Knuckles reveals the truth. Cream is ''[[HeroicBSOD devastated]], while Vector, who had a crush on Vanilla, lets out a BigNo and faints]].
* TheDon: [[spoiler:Secretly the head of the Cottontail mafia. No one knew about it until Knuckles blew the lid]].
* LivingADoubleLife: [[spoiler:She keeps her mafia activities a secret from everyone, while still raising Cream]].
* MamaBear: [[spoiler:She hired a bunch of {{Stealth Expert}}s to be Cream's bodyguards so she would ensure her daughter's safety while Cream hangs out with her friends]].
* ParentsAsPeople: She very much loves Cream, but sometimes makes questionable decisons. When an Omochao calls to attention her choices as a parent [[spoiler:and a mafia don]], she admits that it has a point [[spoiler:and decides that a little more love is what her family business needs]].
* RealityEnsues: Having [[TableSpace a large table]] at home means having to shout at each other just to strike up conversations, so she just sits next to Cream instead.


Added DiffLines:

The powerful, immortal, and beautiful vampire queen of Fangsylvania.
----
* AboveGoodAndEvil: Averted. Blanc avoids stating herself as such since most people who say that they are this are usually evil.
* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: Despite being the vampire queen of Fangsylvania, she hasn't aged a day, thanks to her immortality.
* CompleteImmortality: Comes with being vampire royalty. [[spoiler:Rouge certainly got one thing from her mother]].
* GenerationXerox: Averted. Despite being proud of the accomplishments made during her reign, she doesn't want to turn her daughter and heir [[spoiler:Rouge]] into shallow extensions of herself just to secure a legacy, as many petty dictators had done.
* GoodParents: Despite coming off as an evil matriarch to everyone outside of Fangsylvania, including Sonic, Blanc deeply loves her daughter [[spoiler:Rouge. She answers Rouge's question about her greatest treasure by having her uncover a mirror, and asking her what it showed. And when Rouge turned down the chance to enter the next stage of her training to be with her friends, Blanc understands and simply tells her to come back whenever she feels ready]].
* TheHighQueen: Everyone in Fangsylvania sees her as this, given that her kingdom is seen as a paradise by monsters and other mythical creatures. To everyone outside of it, she's a [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen ruthless and evil matriarch]].
* ProudBeauty: She's proud of her looks. [[spoiler:Rouge gets it from her]].
* PuppyDogEyes: Invoked and exploited; this is a skill Blanc teaches her daughter [[spoiler:Rouge]] to use if you're still too young to use sex appeal.
* WalkingSpoiler: Bringing up Blanc would reveal [[spoiler:her connection to Rouge as her biological mother]].


Added DiffLines:


[[folder:Tikal]]
----
* ParentalSubstitute: Knuckles sees her as his mother, since she essentially raised him.
