--- Sonic, saying his catchphrase
Sonic the Hedgehog is the main protagonist of the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series. He is a teenage hedgehog and a world-famous Freedom Fighter who roams Mobius with his sidekick Miles 'Tails' Prower and battles the evil tyranny of Dr. Ivo Robotnik.
Sonic looks very much as he did in the original Sonic the Hedgehog Mega Drive games that lead to the creation of AoSTH. He is a blue, anthropomorphic hedgehog with a peach belly. His head and back are covered in spines, which are instrumental in his buzzsaw attack. He always wears the same red and white pair of shoes, which are heat-resistant and necessary for his incredible running ability. He appears to be wearing gloves. He also seems to have conjoined eyeballs.
At some point in the past, Sonic met a baby fox cub, who was looking for a family. While the fox asked if he could live with Sonic, the latter just dismissed him and ran away. However, he was shocked after seeing that the baby could fly and keep up with him. Eventually, he accidentally fell of a cliff, although he was saved by the fox cub. Sonic told the fox that he could stay with him, and was dropped anyway by him because of the excitement. Later, while being carried by the fox, the injured Sonic asked what his name was to which he, after making him promise not to tell anyone else, tells the hedgehog that his name was "Miles", although he hated it. Following this, Sonic gave him the nickname "Tails". Eventually, Sonic adopted Tails as his younger brother. Other than Tails, Sonic also met many other people who became his friends, including Professor Von Schlemmer and Hacker. Eventually however, the hedgehog would meet the evil Dr. Ivo Robotnik, who wanted to conquer Mobius. Becoming Sonic's nemesis, Robotnik built countless machines to destroy Sonic, but these were all destroyed by the hedgehog.
Sonic is depicted as a young rebellious, comical, energetic, witty, clever, undefeated, sassy, mirthful, and fun-loving teenager. While he can be loud and obnoxious, he still fiercely defends Mobians from anything untoward, including Dr Robotnik.
Sonic loves to move at super speed, and he cannot stand moving slowly. Other than running, he also enjoys fast race cars and roller coasters. He can sometimes be impatient, and calls slow people (usually his enemies) "slow-mo's". Sonic takes great pride in his speed and his title of "the fastest thing alive" and becomes angered if someone mocks his speed or calls him slow.
Sonic is not just quick on his feet, but quick-witted. Coming up with plans and disguises on the spot, Sonic uses his smarts and impressive speed to trip up the devious Dr. Robotnik. He is likewise very brave, almost never showing fear in the dangerous situations he finds himself in. He is also very adventurous, and loves seeing new places. He travels the world and never stays in one place for long.
Sonic is very compassionate and loves to help good people, although he can get annoyed if someone tries to help him out. He feels that this will land them both in danger, and his temper can get the better of him (like with Captain Rescue). Sonic usually apologizes later though, showing that he does not mean to get angry.
Sonic has a mischievous sense of humor, mostly shown by how he toys with Robotnik and his minions. Despite the mischievous attitude he is given in the main show, during the Sonic Says segments he is illustrated as a responsible role model for the innocent Tails, often dealing advice to the fox when he gets into a difficult situation.
Sonic often speaks to the kids about variant things in Sonic Sez, and it makes him break the fourth wall.
Sonic has been depicted as being quite a "casanova" (person who had many love interests), as evidenced by his many romances with women. He calls girls "babes" and tends to flirt and fool around with every attractive girl he meets, but he is also courteous and a gentleman. He also has a penchant for saying rhyming catchphrases, usually before he takes off running, such as "Let's speed, keed!".
Sonic is known for loving risky things and putting himself in danger. Also, though he appears to know when he is near a trap, he can still get fooled with little effort; early on, Sonic got easily fooled several times by Coconuts. Also, due to his love for pretty girls, Sonic can get distracted by them rather easily, without realizing when they are working against him. When he is in love with one girl, he will do anything she wants of him, even if this involves running around Mobius several times.
While Sonic enjoys helping people and will do whatever they ask of him, he does not seem to have the same feelings towards babies, as he has shown distain about the idea of babysitting infants. This is evidenced when he almost refused to care for the babies Becky, Bucky and Chucky when he was asked. Also, years ago, he almost left a young Tails alone, although he later accepted the fox cub after the latter saved his life.
Relationships With Other Characters
Miles "Tails" Prower
"But even if you're never as fast as me, you're the greatest, keed! You're a great flyer, a great guy, and above all, the greatest friend I could ever hope for!"— Sonic the Hedgehog,
Miles "Tails" Prower is Sonic's best friend and sidekick, as well as his adoptive younger brother. The hedgehog first met him when the fox was just a baby, and though he was not interested in him at first, he decided to adopt him because he was homeless and lost in the wilds. He also was impressed of his two tails, his ability to fly, and his speed. He later developed a great bond with him.
Sonic is seen as a parental figure to Tails, telling him what is right to do and what is not. He also tends to keep him out of his battles with the S.S.S.S.S.S. because he fears that something bad will happen to him, although Tails has done the opposite very often. To deal with this, Sonic sometimes tells Tails that he will tell everybody that his true name is "Miles Prower" (as he knows that the fox hates that name) or just simply tells him to wait at a spot (Which seems to backfire and get Tails in danger often). Sonic has become so dependent on Tails' company that he felt sad and lonely without Tails, even when he took him to his 'parents'. He also worries about Tails when he's is kidnapped, and will do anything to save him, sometimes even when it means facing dangers without knowing what is in store for him (ex: In "High Stakes Sonic", he deliberate threw the race to insure Tails' safety ).
Despite the countless troubles Tails has put Sonic into, Sonic still respects Tails. He is likewise confident that Tails will be a true hero when he grows up.
