Follow TV Tropes
I mean I do but given he's written like a dorky, overzealous and excitable fanboy and done well his charm ends up overtaking the very bad first impression.
His personality is completely at odds with his personality, too, which just makes him seem like he's trying too hard which is also endearing.
This is all from the comics mind, I haven't really paid attention to him in the actual games.
EVERYTHING surrounding Silver is strange, even when it shouldn't be.
His debut in the future in 06? Blaze is there despite having an established origin, that's pretty strange
His appearance in the Rivals games? Technically he shouldn't exist, that's pretty strange
His appearance in Colo(u)rs DS? He was suddenly friends with Sonic and co., that's pretty strange
Generations? Fights at Crisis City but is otherwise still friends with the group, that's pretty strange
Forces? The explanation for why he's even there is in a comic tie-in, that's pretty strange
Team Sonic Racing? He's from the future and got invited, has an interest in driving cars and traveled back in time for that, teams up with Vector abruptly, and that sci-fi looking car is apparently not from his timeline, that's pretty... strangely normal

As opposed to his debut writers.
From the game.
The game that must not be named.

Funnily enough, I'm actually rewatching the Pokecapn let's play for old times' sake.
It's got me doing a lot of thought about what I'd like to see if they did a Sonic Generations 2.
Game Grumps have mentioned playing it again.
Silver really would have been better served debuting in Sonic Rush 3 so he could be on a team with Blaze and Marine without having to do stupid time travel stuff.
Also, people need to accept Marine was actually a fun character.
Marine was half of the exchange that gave us this:
She's worth keeping.
Marine should be decent if not good from now on, mainly because the aspects she was so criticised for in Rush Adventure she had character development to get out of in that very game.
... Oh, except for the deus ex water powers
After her debut game, she's not coming back.
Truly it says something that Marine appears in one game from over 10 years ago and people still remember her.
And yes, Rush Adventure was 2007
Free Marine. I want to know what her powers were all about.
Marine has a nice character design. It's not often you see an orange raccoon. I've never even played her game and I know of her well enough. She should be fodder in spinoffs.
How did you do that?
Why are they against using her again?
It's a picture in my avatar gallery. Images hosted on tvtropes can be directly embedded.
There's a way to drop images into tvtropes for embedding, but I've long since forgotten how.
I wouldn't say they're against using her so much as the sub-series she's in died with her game. SEGA usually only carry over characters if they prove to be really popular. If Rush had kept going, we may have seen her again. Maybe. She was pretty disliked at the time. Now? She'd probably be seen as off-flavor Sticks.

I remember when everyone thought Sticks was Marine.
I don't think anyone thought that.
They thought she was a racoon...only because she has a similar color scheme.
I found a video about it, and Marine also has an entry on the Sonic wiki about the confusion. "Sticks the Badger bears a heavy resemblance to Marine. As a result, many fans initially thought Sticks was an incarnation of Marine for the Sonic Boom series, before it was confirmed that Sticks was a new character."
I did think they where similar at first. I definitely like Sticks a lot.
I do find it funny that Sonic has sort of built up this backlog of female character sidekicks as since the very beginning there has always been a Affirmative Action Girl or love interest added to round out the cast of Sonic/Tails/Knuckles in almost every single adaptation.
Sally Acorn, Sonia, Princess Sara, Cosmo, Sticks, Tangle...
I generally tend to block out stuff like that.
It makes me stop disliking people for assuming things.
Don't forget Tekno the Canary!
Going by trope definition, the only AAG(s) in this series are Rouge, Blaze, and Sticks.

I do consistently based on the fact that I'm not an European.
I really like this trend, by the way. Sticks and Tangle are great additions to the franchise who I hope get absorbed by the mainstream continuity sooner rather than later.
In the main series, Rouge and Blaze, yes.

Tangle and Whisper, sure.
