These are tropes for the characters in Sonic X Gone Horribly Wrong.

    open/close all folders 

    Sonic the Hedgehog 
Sonic is supposedly the main character, though he usually gets overshadowed by Chris, Tails, Amy, and sometimes Cream.

  • Catchphrase: "I'm outta here!" and "Optimist Powah!!"
  • Character Development: In a very short flashback, he was shown to have a stereotypical awkward teenager personality in his younger years.
    • He also seems to be more upbeat and less cynical about his friends than before, though he still calls Tails his "only good friend"
  • Characterization Marches On: Originally less energetic than he is currently.
  • Celibate Hero: Is this towards Amy. In episode 29, it is revealed that he is afraid of commitment due to Sally rejecting his offer for a date due to his squeaky puberty voice when he was a preteen. Though he does genuinely dislike Amy.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: As a preteen he was rejected by Sally.
  • Foil: To Tails.
  • Gary Stu: The fact that Sonic can destroy Eggman's robots in one hit has been referenced a few times.
    • Later episodes show he can also teleport, self destruct without actually dying, and switch the scene at will.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: In Episode 1 and 2. After that it kind fizzled out.
  • Inopportune Voice Cracking: Episode 29 shows a flashback to Sonic's preteen years, where he tried to ask out Sally, but his voice kept breaking throughout the whole sentence. She turned him down.
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: Episode 9 had an oddly out of character Sonic gushing like a girl over how pretty the flowers were. He then expresses relief that nobody else is in the room at that moment.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite mostly hating his companions besides Tails, especially Chris, he still refused to let Chris get shot by the army because "that's dishonest!"
  • Larynx Dissonance: He doesn't even sound that much like Sonic due to the voice actor being really bad at his voice.
  • Only Sane Man: Played up more in older episodes than newer ones. Later this position went to Tails.
  • Ping-Pong Naïveté: Some episodes show him being optimistic to the point of naivete, while others have him being fairly realistic and even cynical of those around him.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Ok so he is pretty well known. But still, he has a big ego, especially shown in later episodes.
  • The Ace: Parodied. See Gary Stu above.
  • The Hero: Obviously.
  • The Pollyanna: Sometimes more optimistic than other times. He manages to stay positive despite finding most of his friends annoying.
  • Why Did It Have To Be Water?: Sonic is scared of water, however he would rather be underwater than with Chris.


     Miles "Tails" Prower 
Sonic's best friend and the only sane person in the group, aside from Sonic occasionally.

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: In contrast to his slightly worrisome but still optimistic personality in Sonic X, here he's shown as a cynic who is generally pessimistic.
    • However, in the updates videos and Tails' thoughts on [Pickle Fandubs'] adlibs video, he is shown to be more optimistic about things like the series continuing and going well. He even tells the creator, with a smile, to keep trying.
  • Bad "Bad Acting": Whenever he has his Adventure voice.
  • Cargo Ship: Tails is canonically married to his plane.
  • Character Development: Was shown in flashbacks to be annoying, talkative and loud, complete with a voice akin to his OVA self.
    • In the prequel, The Adventures of Squeaky Voice Sonic, he is shown to be bratty and generally unlikeable. He is nicer in this series, though still prone to jerkish moments
  • Characterization Marches On: He is heavily subject to this trope. He starts off the series being nerdy and somewhat cheerful. A couple episodes later he gained a bit of a temper around Chris. Then he became the deep voiced cynic we know today.
    • His love life has changed too. Originally he had a crush on Cream but now he's married to his plane.
  • Filler He hates Filler episodes, and would rather actually have a plotline to work with on the gang's adventures.
  • Foil: He's cynical in contrast to Sonic's optimism.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Episode 12
    Come on! Just get in the goshdarn plane already!
  • Hypocrite Tails loves machines, is married to his plane and claimed it breaks his heart to see a beloved machine go down, yet he still criticizes Amy for feeling sad about a robot getting hurt.
  • Jerkass Ball: He saves the whole city by defusing a bomb, but the crowd boos him because "he's not Sonic". What does he do? He resets the bomb back to its original dangerous state; just out of spite!
  • Large Ham: His Sonic Adventure voice sounds very over the top.
  • Vocal Dissonance: His voice is quite deep in some episodes.
  • Love Triangle: Him, Cream and Mr Tanaka in episode 7.
  • Morality Pet: He is the only member of the friend group that Sonic doesn't hate.
  • Not Allowed to Grow Up: Subverted, he appears to be the only one who CAN grow up, but he always resets at the age of 8 after hitting a certain age. He switches between 8 and 12 depending on his voice.
  • Only Sane Man: He's the only one who wants the plot to move forward.
  • Puppy Love: He used to like Cream.
  • The Cynic: Tails often says cynical things, even while smiling.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Seems nicer and less angry in Season 3 than in the previous 2 seasons.
  • Vocal Evolution: Tails' voice started off scratchy up until episode 9. By episode 10 it was even deeper than SONIC'S. Episode 12 made his voice high and scratchy again but episode 14 his voice dropped again. His voice currently isn't as deep as before but it's an attempt at sounding like his current voice (sorta)
    • Season 3 shows that he has a weird condition where he keeps going through puberty several times, resetting as a child and then it all starts over again. His voice begins breaking in episode 29.
    • Taken Up to Eleven starting from Episode 29, when he voice becomes even MORE inconsistent between lines. It begins breaking in said episode, becomes a deeper adolescent voice at the end, and then in episode 30? It becomes high pitched again, resembling his Sonic Heroes voice, followed by a badly voice acted version of his Sonic Adventure voice, before reverting back to his scratchy voice from previous episodes.

     Chris Thorndyke 

Ah yes, Chris Thorndyke. Everybody's favourite character. A 12 year old normal kid who teams up with Sonic and co.

  • Bratty Half-Pint: He acts like a 5 year old and whines and complains about everything.
  • Catchphrase: "I'm telling mommy!" "It's not good enough!" "This is boring!" and "I want candy!"

  • Dumbass Has a Point: Despite being stupid, he can occasionally be right about things, such as calling Ella out on going to the bathroom without washing her hands.

  • Hypocrite: He often tells people to stop complaining.
  • Vocal Dissonance: His voice is sometimes too high pitched for a 12 year old.

    • The first couple of seasons she was an annoying little kid with a high shrill voice. Towards the end of Season 2 she had a few Dirty Kid moments, particularly in episode 20. By season 3 she'd outgrown her dirty tendencies and was now at a motherly state in life.

The villain.

     Decoe and Bocoe 

Dr Eggman's fabulous robots.

  • Camp Gay: Decoe especially has a feminine voice and way of speaking, though they both qualify
  • Characterization Marches On: Initially evil with little personality and monotone voices, halfway through Season 2 they suddenly became fabulous and flamboyant with little explanation other than the implication that Eggman changed their personality chips, possibly because they were too boring.

  • Heel–Face Turn: Although they hang out with Eggman, they barely help him with his evil work, instead caring more about their children.
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: Bocoe likes watching the lifestyle channel, specifically the interior decorating section.

  • Vocal Evolution: Initially they had monotone robot voices, but as of episode 20 they suddenly have British accents and much more personality and emotion in their voices.

     Big the Cat 

Big the Cat is a bit of a cinnamon roll and silly guy

  • Catchphrase FROGGY!

  • Simpleton Voice: As expected.

     Froggocius "Froggy" 

  • Foil He is smart and a jerk, in contrast to Big's silly and kind personality.
  • Jerkass: He may come off as this for running away from Big when he clearly needs the frog.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: A more lighthearted version of this trope. Big is obsessed with him, but he also claims that Froggy is the only one he feels safe around. Kinda makes Froggy seem like a jerk for running away though.
  • The Smart Guy: He is apparently the most intelligent frog in the world according to himself and Dr. Eggman, although Eggman claims one episode later that he is "a useless frog"


How well does it match the trope?
