I was there when people saw an image of Sticks pre-reveal, and practically everyone thought it was the Boom version of Marine, and everyone was wondering why her of all people were going to be in Boom.
Only because of the colors...
That was lame.
Last I checked, colors are a pretty key part in character design.
I still find it curious she got into one of the Olympic games. I hope she pops up in non-Boom media since the show's dead.
It's pretty lame.
They're not even the same shade of those colors.

Ah well, thanks for answering anyways. Appreciate it.
But if popularity is really a thing then why did Jet get appear more than her? Unless I'm counting wrong?
Is the Olympic Games still a thing?
Yes, they are.
There's a new one happening this year.
Complete with outfits.

I did like the last Olympic game, so I'll be keeping an eye out now.
Team Sonic Racing in 7 Minutes
Did everyone just die from E3? Why aren't we talking about Olympics 2020? It's finally allowing online multiplayer.
The Olympic titles sell millions yet no one seems to actually talk about them.
I've always been cool with that series: it's basically Mario Party with Sonic characters, and an Olympics skin, and that's pretty rad. I don't buy too many of those big party games often, though (like, one Jackbox and one Mario Party per gen), but I like that the games exist.
The soundtracks of the Olympics series, on the other hand, are freaking fantastic and the things I look forward the most when those titles come out. They rival, and up until Ultimate outright beat out Smash Bros in "nostalgic arrangements" department.
I've always felt like the two companies should release a Mario / Sonic platformer to supplement it, though.

I mean, games selling more doesn't make them an interesting subject to talk about.
Wii sports is the second best selling game of all time, you don't see people talk about it.
The crossover olympics are good though, don't get me wrong.
Windii got around translating TSR story mode.
Annnndd the video is removed.
I noticed that Cream is a background character in the Olympics game. 'So much for the "Sega put Cream on the bus" theory.
She's also in the IDW comic, and so are Vanilla and Gemerl.
Massive props to the comics for bringing back pretty much everyone.
They would've done that eventually.
The Archie comics had a lot of mandates over which characters could and couldn't be used. Cream was disallowed for a majority of the comic's run.
Was a reason ever given? Cream seems like a weird character to veto. She's a popular character, not a classic-era character, and she appears in many games. They allow Bark, Honey, and Fang but not Cream?
It's because she was in the Sonic X comic and they didn't want franchise mixing, according to this and this.
"I think we would be able to import her into STH. The "Cream Embargo" is solely to keep a distinction between the titles, so I don't see any immediate reason for why she and her assorted relations couldn't come over. Hopefully we'll never have to test that theory."
"Recently I became confused about what you can and can't do with the comic. When you said they don't want you mixing Sonic X with the main comic and the fact that there was info about that restriction being lifted, does that mean that yes you can add Cream but she can't have the memories and experiences from the other comic?
Right. STH-Cream (whenever she comes to be) will be completely unrelated to SX-Cream. The cross-over we'll see in SX#40 is a special, once-in-the-series-lifetime event."

Cream feels like another element (like humans and G.U.N) from the Adventure Era that Sonic Team isn't terribly interested in having prominent any more, but doesn't want the backlash from outright getting rid of her, so she's just shunted to the background.

How well does it match the trope?
