Have you ever wondered what might be going on outside of the world of Sonic Boom? What other adventures might be going on outside of Team Sonic? What other heroes might make their ways into the history books? Well, my friend, you've come to the right place.

Sonic Boom Legends is a fan fiction series written by Fixers Channel on Deviantart, centering around 14 characters with a island called Forgone Island. It's a fan-made spinoff of the Sonic Boom show, and has many ties with the show. (Some of the events and characters that take their place on Bygone/Seaside Island effect Forgone Island.) One of the most well-known facts about the series is that most of the main characters characters belong to multiple other creators, often to represent themselves, and were all included in the series, thanks to the writer.

So far, the series has 9 episodes, with many more in production. The series and episodes can be read here: [1] The Wiki can be viewed here: [2] The character bios can be viewed here: [3]

Note that none of the episodes, characters, or events in Legends are canon to the official Sonic Boom canon. Writer Fixers Channel has made the writing of Legends very ambiguous, and it's up to the reader to decide if they want it to be canon.

BEWARE OF SPOILERS for both this series and Sonic Boom. It's best that you read Legends or watch Sonic Boom before viewing the page, but if you are fine with Spoilers, continue on.

[Sonic Boom Legends] contains examples of:

  • A Boy and His X: An okapi and his robotic dog (who once belonged to a badger,) in "Working Overslime." It doesn't last, but still.
  • Abusive Parents: Ensham, apparently, CHAINS HIS DAUGHTER TO THE WALL whenever she has a problem with his plans. Father of the Year, everyone!
    • While T.W. Barker isn't Keiran's father, he's his uncle, and for quite some time, he's been the only parental figure in Keiran's life since Keiran left his crime-seeking parents. That said, he's not getting a "Number 1 Uncle" mug anytime soon. Just as Barker is in the main canon, he is cruel, selfish and manipulative. He's even blackmailed Keiran, his own NEPHEW, into helping him with his cons and deals, or else he'd leave Keiran for homeless. Keiran mentions to Emily at one point, even, that he only stays, or stayed, with Barker because he's got no where else to go.
  • Action Girl: Alley and Quayla definitely qualify, especially when fighting alongside one another.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "You Barked Up The Wrong Circus" is this for Emily.
    • "Translator in Disguise" is this for Shift.
    • Erik has one in the form of "Working Overslime." He also technically shares this with Quayla in "Shipped at First Sight."
    • "Iron Can vs Captain Lucas: Tomato War" is this for Lucas.
    • "Shipped at First Sight" is this for Quayla, though she technically shares it with Erik.
  • Aesop: In "Translator in Disguise," it's don't always believe what you hear about your friends, because they could be lies.
    • In "Shipped at First Sight," it's that love takes time, and you shouldn't push people into a relationship they're not ready for.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Fixer has "Kira" for Alkira.
    • Some of the main cast tend to call Sophia "mama."
  • Alternate Continuity: One of the most popular AU's of Legends was created by grimlock1997 (creator of Shift) and Erik-the-Okapi (creator of Erik,) where instead of another island altogether, Legends takes place on the same island that Sonic Boom takes place. Many things are altered for the universe, such as making Tails and Fixer siblings, as well as making Sticks and Fixer a canon couple. This continuity, while having many different variations of it, has 4 main interpretations: Sonic Boom Bloopers, Bro-to-Bro, Dark Tails Unleashed, and Technical Extinction.
  • Art Evolution: Alley went through a heavy redesign, going from looking like this to looking like this.
    • Erik also went through a big redesign, going from looking like this to looking like this.
    • Shift as well went through a big redesign, going from looking like this to looking like this.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Keiran gets back at his uncle for his abuse, his kidnapping of his new friends, and... making him eat sushi, when Keiran hates it.
  • Ascended Meme: The Dawn x Sandwich meme was referenced in "Iron Can vs Captain Lucas: Tomato War," as Lucas playfully teases Dawn about her making "that sandwich she loves," to which she playfully gasps at.
  • Bittersweet Ending: "Informal Occasions." Cinda successfully steals an ancient book from the Book Fair, no matter how others tried to stop her, and though none of the main characters got hurt, needless to say, the night was ruined for everyone else involved. However, Wake is able to comfort Dawn, who genuinely appreciates his concern for her.
  • Brick Joke: In "Meteor Not, Here I Come," Wake is handed Dawn's ancient book in the middle of the episode by Maniac, in Cinda's body. Later on, Molly comes back to take the book back for her employer, but thankfully for Dawn, Wake had swapped around the real book for a fake one in order to prank Dawn, and that was the book Molly took. Dawn then wonders what Molly took with her. With Molly, she opens the book, only to reveal there was a glitter bomb set in it.
  • Call-Back: Being quite the story-arch motivated series, Legends is full of Call Backs.
    • Ensham's entire motivation for wanting Fixer dead is one, huge Call-Back to the first episode, where Fixer takes Alkira away from his abuse, and tarnishes his pride by beating him a fight.
    • In Working Overslime, the villagers all get together to discuss the events of the previous episode.
    • Also in "Working Overslime," Dawn mentions that she HAD a book on the Ancients, but it was stolen at the Book Fair she and Wake attended in Informal Occasions.
    • Speaking of the book, the thieves that took the book, Molly Sharp Claws and Cinda Soft Paws made an appearance as the antagonists of Meteor Not, Here I Come. Granted, Cinda swapped bodies with Maniac, but by the end of it, she got her body back, but not before Maniac, in Cinda's body, was properly able to return the book.
  • Call-Forward: This, combined with Continuity Nod, happened in You Barked Up The Wrong Circus. At the end of the episode, Keiran gets his sweet revenge against his uncle for dragging him along into his manipulative schemes, forcing him to do something that would hurt Emily, and of course, making eat sushi when Barker KNEW he hated sushi, by forcing sushi down Barker's throat. While it didn't hurt Barker, it did make his quite nauseous. This is referencing Circus of Plunders, where Barker says his performers ate bad sushi, and got sick, being the reason they can't preform. It also means that Keiran, Emily and the rest of the gang were the performers that Barker mentioned escaped.
  • Cats Are Mean: Cinda and Molly certainly qualify.
  • Circus Episode: Episode 3, You Barked Up The Wrong Circus.
  • Continuity Nod: As stated above, there are multiple events that occur on Forgone Island that are because of some event on Forgone/Seaside Island.
    • At the end of the Sonic Boom episode, Buster, Sticks sadly sent Buster away, believing he's not pet material, and would be happier in the "big world." This way, Buster makes his way to Forgone Island, in the episode "Working Overslime," and meets Erik, who becomes his new owner... For a while, anyways.
    • At the end of Translate This, after U.T. reveals Stick's true intentions concerning him, she throws the robot into the ocean, believing it had to be done. However, this apparently didn't destroy U.T., as Shift would find him waterlogged in "Translate This," and, like Erik with Buster, took the robot in. Again, only for a while.
    • Evidently, the same kind of meteor that switched Eggman and Sonic's brains in The Meteor hit Forgone Island, as well, and switched the brains of Maniac and Cinda.
    • In "Dr. Eggman's Tomato Sauce," Eggman's tomato sauce becomes an island-wide sensation, but in "Iron Can vs Captain Lucas: Tomato War," it's not just Forgone/Seaside Island that adores it, as it's popular enough to be shipped over to Lucas' shop, and entice the rest of Lucas' friends with it's good taste (sans Forge.)
  • Cuckoosnarker: Wake. He loves practical pranks, jokes, and everything you could find in a joke book. As such, he's quite good at making witty comments towards his friends, though always in good taste and intention. "Informal Occasions" and "Working Overslime" are good examples of this.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Forge takes the cake for this trope. Well, pie, in Forge's case, anyways.
    • Lucas is no slouch at this trope, either.
    • Dawn is, too, especially when around Wake.
  • Didn't Think This Through: In "Working Overslime," when Buster was spewing slime everywhere due to swallowing the Gem, Forge decided to deal with him, head on, and jumped directly at him. Naturally, with no battle strategy, all that happened was Buster sent him flying in a practical fountain of slime. Fixer DID try and warn him, though it was too late.
  • Dream Sequence: Alkira goes through one in the beginning of "What's Mine Is Yours." It's not a pleasant dream, though.
  • Everyone Can See It: Played with with Fixer and Alkira. Quayla and Emily insisted that it was obvious that Fixer liked Alkira, in "You Barked Up The Wrong Circus," though Alley stated that it was too early to tell. Shift also seemed a bit suspicious at Fixer's nickname, Kira, for Alkira in "Translate This."
  • Everyone Has Standards: In "Working Overslime," when the gang learns that Fixer stole the Chaos Gem from Ensham, they make no hesitation to call him out on it.
  • Failed Attempt at Drama: In "Iron Can vs Captain Lucas: Tomato War," Lucas, having had enough of everyone buying Eggman's Tomato Sauce instead of the sauce he made, decides to quit his job, hoping to garner a reaction out of someone. Sadly, no one was on the street to hear him. Effectively having a tantrum, he then throws his marker to the ground, and attempts to stomp on it, but only succeeds in slipping on said marker.
  • Felony Misdemeanor: While it was FAR from the only problem he had with his uncle, Keiran mentions to Barker while fighting him off how many times he's had to remind him that he HATES sushi, to which Barker never remembered, apparently. (It's also possible Barker just didn't care.)
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: The same type of meteor that swapped Sonic and Eggman's brains hit Forgone Island in "Meteor Not, Here I Come," and swapped the brains of Maniac and Cinda.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: It's unknown whether this was intentional or not, but in the episode "Working Overslime," Erik, having gotten fed up with Buster's sliming everywhere, tells the robotic dog they're getting his slime hose cut. Buster reacts pretty nervously to it. Makes you wonder what was running through Buster's mind at that moment.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Given this takes place in the world of Sonic Boom, where this trope is lampshaded to the moon and back, this trope is inevitable.
  • Island of Mystery: Forgone Island has shades of this. If the Chaos Gem means anything, the island has quite the mysterious background.
  • Insane Troll Logic: In "Working Overslime," Dawn reminds Wake of the time he threw a thesaurus across the room, breaking her ruler in the process. He shrugs, saying it was a "revolution against the queen," as well as justifying it, saying he at least "used words."
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: While the fourth wall on Forgone Isle is certainly in better shape than it is on Bygone/Seaside Isle, in "Informal Occasions," Fixer says he won the award for "Best Series Based On Original Characters." Given the fact that Fixer is the OC of Legends' writer..
  • Mundane Made Awesome:
    • As stated above, when Dawn DOES go into battle, she'll use a book as a weapon.
    • So, how did Keiran defeat his uncle in the end of "You Barked Up The Wrong Circus"? Two words: Cold. Sushi.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: In "Working Overslime," when Buster takes the Chaos Gem from Forge, the rest of the gang try and take it away from Buster by talking to him sweetly and approaching him slowly. But the very second Fixer realizes it's working, Buster swallows the gem whole. Erik was not too happy about it, to say the least.
  • No Name Given: This was originally the case for the Book Thief. She had no name given, and no one knew a thing about her, earning her the title "Book Thief," even in-universe! Finally, her name was revealed as Cinda, who stole the book along with her partner in crime, Molly.
  • Not So Above It All: Between the two best friends, Alley seems to be the one to keep Quayla grounded. Erik even warns Quayla in "Shipped At First Sight" that she can't do whatever she wants while Alley is away. That said, however, she's just as much a Shipper on Deck as her best friend, and playfully teases Emily about Keiran alongside Quayla in "You Barked Up The Wrong Circus."
  • Oh, Crap!: In "Iron Can vs Captain Lucas: Tomato War," When the cans of tomato sauce take over the electronic devices as they did back on Bygone/Seaside Island, the cans gang together and trap Forge inside a giant robot, created by putting themselves together. When Lucas sees the giant, dangerous can-robot staring down on him, he can only squeak out, "Mommy."
  • Out of Character Alert: In "Meteor Not, Here I Come," unlike with Sonic and Eggman, Maniac and Cinda's friends both notice something.. off about the two. With Maniac!Cinda, Molly grows increasingly annoyed with what she supposes is Cinda's forgetfulness with who she is and what they do. Meanwhile, with Cinda!Maniac, Sophia is thoroughly confused as to why Maniac is acting weird, and gets increasingly angry with Cinda!Maniac for botching up the recipes she usually knows well. That anger is finally unleashed when Cinda!Maniac shows no hesitation to leaving Forge behind in a burning kitchen.
  • Pilot: The series technically had one at the end of the Easter Information Session.
  • Power of Friendship: Being the True Companions that they are, Fixer and his friends seem to solve their troubles, and face their foes the best when they're together.
    • Alley and Quayla are a special example. According to their bios, while averagely strong and quick on their own, together, they can face anything without much of a problem.
  • The Professor: Fixer could qualify for this trope. While perhaps not quite as smart as Tails, he's very handy and brainy, and his friends usually come to him when they need an invention looked at.
  • Repulsive Ringmaster: If you've seen him in the main show, you'll have figured that T.W. Barker is this. You couldn't be more right, as he has no problem kidnapping Emily and her friends, as well as forcing Keiran to assist in his heinous crimes.
  • Running Gag: The series has a few, all Played for Laughs.
    • Not an episode with Wake and Dawn in the same room for even one scene may go by without Wake pulling a prank on her or Dawn mentioning Wake pulling a prank on her.
    • Forge doing favors in exchange for pies.
      • Heck, Forge doing people favors in general has become this. Forge even lampshades on this.
    Forge: Can't wait for the day someone comes around, just because they miss me, rather than to ask for my help.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: In "Working Overslime," when Forge denies Erik of stopping Buster from spewing slime, Erik decided to leave Buster there, and make a break for it. Not that he could escape a very angry Forge.
    • In "Meteor Not, Here I Come," The very second that Maniac!Cinda got the chance, she took the Ancient Book, and made a break for the Main Village. She was only barely able to escape an angry Molly and horde of weasels, though.
      • In the same episode, Cinda!Maniac grabbed the meteor the first chance she got, and got out of Sophia's bakery as soon as she could, displaying Cinda's Dirty Coward tendencies in full view by not even hesitating to leave Forge in a smoking room that could possibly be burning. Though, before she could get very far, she was stopped by Sophia, who was appalled at Cinda!Maniac for leaving Forge behind, as well as already being angry with her for her previous actions in the episode.
  • Shipper on Deck: Quayla, Emily and Alley all fit the requirements. The latter is a bit more mature about it than the former two, as shown in "You Barked Up The Wrong Circus."
  • Ship Tease: Whether it be intentional or not, there seems to be quite the amount of romantic subtext between some characters, if you look close enough.
    • From staring at her in awe for a second when she wore a dress ("Informal Occasions") to risking his own life to retrieve a amethyst for her ("What's Mine Is Yours,") you can't deny that Fixer has at least a little bit of shipping tease with Alkira.
    • Some episodes seem to do this with Forge and Sophia, as well. Apparently, she even has a pie recipe all for him!
    • "Shipped At First Sight" was an entire episode dedicated to doing this for Erik and Quayla.
  • Slapstick Knows No Gender: There hasn't been loads of slapstick with either genders yet, but a good one comes at the end of "Meteor Not, Here I Come": After Molly unknowingly steals the fake book that Wake set up for Dawn, instead of the Ancient Book, she decides to peak inside, glitter explodes in her face, revealing that Wake booby-trapped the book.
    • When Wake has a prank ready, expect Dawn to be the one that activates it.
  • Story Arc: In comparison to the canon of Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom Legends is a lot more story-driven, and everything that has happened in a previous episode will be remembered in the next. And while the series does take breaks for more playful, non-important episodes, as well as episodes that complete the plots within the episodes themselves, most of the episodes usually continue or complete a story arc from a previous episode.
  • Straight Man: Alley seems to be this to Quayla, at times. Though, she's not always in this role. See Not So Above It All... well, above.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Pies, for Forge.
  • True Companions: The people of the Main Village are this, through and through. Despite all the disagreements and flaws, they all love each other deeply, and they all have each other's backs. It's obvious that they're almost, if not just, as close of friends as Team Sonic, and their friendships often lead to Heartwarming Moments. It's also just as true outside the fanfic, and the creators of all these characters are just as close and caring.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Get Forge mad enough, and he WILL unleash this trope upon you. Same goes for Sophia.

And we could live for a thousand years...
