Web Animation / Sonic: Night of the Werehog

Go To

Sonic: Night of the Werehog is a Sonic the Hedgehog short meant to tie into Sonic Unleashed.

The short takes place during the events of Sonic Unleashed. In it, Sonic and Chip enter a Haunted House that's haunted by three ghosts. Two of them, Su and Wu, fight over Lah's affections by taking photos of people they scare. Though Chip scares easily, Sonic doesn't. Unbeknownst to the ghosts, Sonic can transform into something even scarier than a ghost.


Sonic: Night of the Werehog was released online in November 2008. It was animated by Marza Animation Planet.

This short provides examples of:

  • All-CGI Cartoon: All rendered in 3D CGI.
  • Bedsheet Ghost: Su and Uh are stereotypical ghosts looking like floating bedsheets.
  • Boy Meets Ghoul: Or more appropriately, werehog meets ghoul in form of Chip
  • Cute Ghost Girl: Lah, a cheerful female ghost glowing in cute pink. More human than Su and Uh, with purple hair, pink dress, and feminine figure.
  • Fat and Skinny: Su's the fat one, Uh's the skinny one.
  • Fusion Dance: Su and Uh merge together to form a mightier ghost named Baker to get their revenge on Sonic.
  • Haunted House: Sonic and Chip enter an abandoned house haunted by ghosts.
  • Lightmare Fuel: The whole premise is ghosts scaring people... and taking photos of their scared faces to win affection of a girl ghost.

  • Mime and Music-Only Cartoon: The short contains only five, one word lines of dialogue. Despite this, it has both an English and Japanese version that replace dub over the words.
  • Morphic Resonance: In the ending, Chip has a pink heart mark on the left cheek, which means he's really Lah in Chip's from.
  • Nerves of Steel: Sonic is not scared at all at the ghosts, and even teases them by making a face, disappointing both Su and Uh and Lah.
  • Peek-a-Bogeyman: Su and Uh do like to scare people who wander into their Haunted House, but never try to hurt them (with the exception of Sonic) and only snap photos of them to show to Lah.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: The female ghost, Lah, is pink, while the two male ghosts, Su and Uh, are blueish white.
  • Shout-Out:

  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: Su and Uh end up being defeated by Sonic, and Lah falls for Sonic the Werehog instead.
  • Silly Spook: Su and Uh are two bumbling ghosts who fight over Lah's affection.
  • Transformation Horror: When the full moon starts to expose itself, Sonic starts crouching and shaking in shock. When he finally sees the full moon, he suddenly stares up to it, then grows fur and in size to his werehog form, much which can only be seen in shadow.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Lah can shapeshift into someone else, including Chip. She still has her heart cheek mark.
