Oddysey of Hurt is a Sonic the Hedgehog fanfiction written by Miru. This fanfiction concerns Rouge the Bat being abused by Shadow the Hedgehog, and Knuckles the Echidna coming to her rescue. Sonic and Blaze also discuss Blaze's abuse at the hands of Silver years past. The Chaotix arrive to help Knuckles, but betray him for money and tie Rouge to the railroad tracks. Knuckles saves her, though. Ultimately, Rouge is beaten so badly, she is hospitalized. Knuckles has to help her recover. It can be found right over here. A followup, called Sacrifices To Apep is in the works.
Tropes utilized in this fanfiction:
- Chained to a Railway: In part 3, Shadow bribes the Chaotix and has them tie Rouge to a railway.
- Chickification: Rouge. Blaze also qualifies, as she is horribly beaten by Silver in flashbacks.
- Damsel in Distress: Rouge
- Disney Death: Rouge the Bat has one in the hospital.
- Disproportionate Retribution: Poor Rouge gets beaten by Shadow over the most minor of things.
- Domestic Abuse: Shadow beats Rouge on a regular basis
- FaceHeel Turn: The Chaotix after being bribed by Shadow.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Shadow beat Rouge for not getting him the right amount of chicken nuggets.
- Lifetime Movie of the Week: straight example.
- No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Shadow does an absolutely merciless beatdown on Rouge in chapter 4. These include burning Rouge's hands and feet, spanking her, and punching her against the wall.
- Real Men Hate Affection
- True Love's Kiss: In the hospital
- Unusual Euphemism: "Trog"
- Wife-Basher Basher: Blaze bashes Shadow. Also subverted, as you expect Knuckles to pull this, but he instead just rescues Rouge and calls the ambulance.
