Miles "Tails" Prower
First Appearance: Sonic the Hedgehog 2

What a wild stretch Tails has had in this series. I enjoy him quite a bit as Sonic's defacto sidekick.

His look just works. He's a cute little orange fox with two tails and sneakers. He's often shorter than Sonic, but his appearance works throughout the entirety of the series. You don't need much here. It's simple and works. Oh and he's got two tails. The freak.

What is cool is how they use Tails to tag along with Sonic in the levels in his first appearance. It's just awesome to have a legitimate sidekick who was just there with you. Oh, and he can fly!? And he has a cool plane!? Nah, Tails just works in his debut appearance by virtue of just bringing so many new elements to Sonic, and for a lot of times platformers as a whole. And then he can actually help Sonic fly to areas in Sonic 3 & Knuckles! He got an upgrade! My man.

So already established easily is that Tails is Sonic's flying buddy who is trying to help him out and tag along where he can, and also flies a freaking plane for him. He's got a bunch of savvy uses that are explored later in the Sonic Adventure series. Where he has the worst of it is just that... god, his voice acting just sucked for a WHILE. But that doesn't stop him from being a solid character.

Sonic Adventure 1 & 2 get a lot of love because for the most part, it has a lot of character-based storylines in it. Tails has to strike out on his own in Sonic Adventure 1, and eventually he is thrust into having to save the day without Sonic there. He actually saves a city! And in Sonic Adventure 2, he often has to fight against Eggman himself, trying to be the best hero he can be without Sonic most times. And he gets to show he's quite an engineering wizard in his own right. Everything they do with Tails in these games is great and it's very clear they had a distinct character in mind for him.

And then we get to... the rest of his appearances. He's a lot less important, mostly relegated to background sidekick guy. It's usually not that interesting though. When he's given more to do, he's usually great though, especially when they actually bother to show off his personality. Lost World and Forces are two games I think do a little bit better of a job with Tails and make his appearances there more meaningful. But he always has a purpose in the games where he's just the sidekick role supplementing Sonic.

I keep mentioning Sonic Frontiers, but I have a lot of faith they're going to do something great with him in that game. Ian Flynn is involved, and he's been writing Sonic stuff for longer than a lot of Sonic's fans have been alive now, and I think he really gets why Tails is such a good character and how they can explore him more than just Sonic's sidekick.

Please stop having Tails cowering and then Sonic running in to save him though. That's a trope in the games I haaaaate. Especially when he's super competent in them after that. Like have Tails be fighting them off and just needs Sonic to get his back. He deserves that respect by now.

Professor Pickle
First Appearance: Sonic Unleashed

Professor Pickle kind of sucks.

He's an old scholar who is only in Sonic Unleashed and he just annoyingly forces you to keep backtracking to him to open up more of the story. His thing is that he is aloof about all the doom going on until the very end of the story where all hope is lost.

If he was just some kind of lame helper character... okay. I guess. But they try and fail horribly to make him funny. Not a single thing the man says or does that is intended to be funny lands.

He sucks. There's nothing good about him. He's better off never coming back and was a detriment to the game he was in.

Rookie aka Avatar aka Custom Hero aka Custom Character aka Your Deviant Art OC
First Appearance: Sonic Forces

This one is actually a bit more challenging to do because there's not one appearance to judge by. So uh, I just kind of have to just make due otherwise.

Rookie can be your very own OC where you customize a lot about them. Surprisingly, there's a pretty good amount of options here. Got to give Sega credit for that at least.

But it's a silent protagonist who is just putzing around in Sonic's world. This feels like something catered to children, and I'm sure they loved it. They essentially get to put themselves in Sonic's world and be Sonic's buddy. For me, as an adult, this doesn't land at all. It's one respect where I do think all the hate for Rookie is a little overblown because guys, come on, this is for kids. They loved this shit.

This character is in an absolute nonsense game though. They start out as a character that becomes a full blown hero, but it's mostly just everyone around them being all "WOWEE YOU'RE SO GREAT! YOU GOT THIS!" Which... man, this is just not for adults. Just thinking about it all over again, they just completely lose a lot of people with this choice.

The gadget stuff is actually fun enough for what it is. But why not just give it to Tails? Literally just have Tails do all this stuff with gizmos. He's not as fast as Sonic so that tracks too.

I dunno, there's just not much here for this character but to appeal to someone who wants to be their own OC in something that can only appeal to children. But given Sonic Forces' pretty dark story tones as it is, it's also confusing why they have something marketed to children so clearly with that.

I don't need this feature and character again. I think it got enough flack we won't see it again.

E-102 Gamma
First Appearance: Sonic Adventure 1

E-102 Gamma is a one and done character, but he's done pretty perfectly. It's a simple, but impactful story and I positively love it.

He looks like a pretty standard, sleek robot boy with a blaster that stands out, but still looks entirely like a total Eggman creation.

And he even acts like a standard Eggman robot too. He's a cold, stoic AI and a lot of it is subtle. He doesn't ever outright say anything he's thinking. You just pick up on it all as the story goes on, which is honestly ambitious for a game like this. It's not groundbreaking in most story mediums, but for freaking Sonic Adventure 1, as jank as it is? That's impressive.

Basically, he's a robot boy who has a bird charging him up like a classic Eggman robot. He's one of many robots, and he works for Eggman. He watches E-101 Beta, we'll say his "brother", and see what Eggman does to mutilate him and make him a more horrible weapon. He sees Amy Rose who tells him about her autonomy and what motivates her and that he doesn't need to obey Eggman. He doesn't buy it until he sees Amy's Birdie friend, who triggers something deep inside him. And then he felt compelled to release Amy. When he tries to kill Sonic later, Amy stops him and he begins to show more humanity and simply spares him.

And then, he decides to break free and rescue the other E-Series robots, freeing the animals inside them. He goes one by one until he's left with E-101, and they fight. And after defeating E-101, it attacks him too, in what I think was E-101 also realizing that Gamma needed freed too. And so seeing a final vision of the family of bird together, he decides not to repair himself and simply lets himself explode, freeing the bird inside him, and allowing them all the be free.

We don't get stories as impactful as this in most of the games now. This is a perfect story arc to explore what it is like for one of Eggman's robots, and it's so much more ambitious than Sonic has any right to be. I think it was meant to be the real emotional story in Sonic Adventure 1, and it provided a unique playstyle that was pretty good.

E-102 Gamma was great. He never needs to be in another game. His story was done as well as it could have been. Give me more of this with these one off characters and I'll take it every time.

Orbot
First Appearance: Sonic Colors

Before anyone says anything, Orbot is, in fact, not in Sonic Unleashed. That's SA-55. And I may as well preface that by saying I like SA-55 more than Orbot.

Orbot has a good design. He's got his namesake from his shape, where if you put all of his robot parts together, he makes a perfect orb! It's honestly a great design and I love how distinct it looks.

He's mostly Eggman sidekick robot from Sonic Colors onward, and he's pretty funny. His shenanigans with Cubot, in particular, are really good too. I think Orbot plays an important role in letting someone bounce off of Eggman. As great as Eggman is, it helps to have someone Eggman can actually talk to and order around.

Not all of his comedy lands, unfortunately, but a decent amount of it does. He doesn't actively put me off. I just like Eggman with some decent robot minions and think he works well with it. He's good to be there to do minion stuff as well.

I'm not in love with Orbot, but I appreciate his presence for the most part. He serves a purpose, he is funny some of the time, and he doesn't get in the way at all. I say keep him around.

Espio the Chameleon
First Appearance: Knuckles' Chaotix

Yo, they found a way to put a ninja in the Sonic universe and that's pretty cool.

Espio has undergone some changes in his appearance, simply looking like a purple chameleon with a horn that could change colors to upgrading to black and white boots and gloves. He looks great though. He stands out and has a more hardened look to him than the rest of the cast. I like that about him.

I think he serves a good role in the Chaotix in that he's a straight man to Charmy's exhuberance and Vector's overzealousness. He comes across as calm and collected for the most part, and I think that sort of appreciable personality that is needed in the series with big personalities. He comes across as super competent most of the time, which helps and puts him above a lot of characters. I don't think he's ever looked bad in any game, honestly. But he's not been in a ton of them.

I really don't have a lot more to say about Espio. He's just flat out cool, fills his role well, and any time he's around they tend not to waste him or make him seem too, too pointless. I think it's clear they have some kind of soft spot for Espio in Sega too. I base that off of nothing but the fact they seem more careful with him than other characters, and he doesn't have the chance to be annoying or in the way.

Overall, gimme more Espio. He's cool as heck.

No joke, my friend in college stole this name for her cat she got before I got my own. I always said I wanted to name the next cat I owned Big The Cat and she took it (sex and the city fan). She at least asked me first I'd she could use it.

I can not in good faith name any cat I own Big The Cat now :(

Fang the Sniper aka Nack the Weasel
First Appearance: Sonic Triple Trouble

I will forever maintain that Nack the Weasel is the most underutilized character in the Sonic universe and I can't believe they don't do anything with him.

Fang is a purple weasel with a god damn cowboy hat, a belt, gloves, and boots and oh yeah he has a pop gun and a air bike he calls THE MARVELOUS QUEEN.

How is this legend not in more stuff? His look is awesome, he's got a unique concept for the series, and he can fit literally ANYWHERE!

He was in Sonic Triple Trouble, Sonic Fighters, and Sonic Drift 2, but he's criminally not appeared anywhere else. He's been rumored to appear in a couple games but never made the cut. But man, you can have him anywhere! He's a mercenary in a world where Eggman can call him up and go "Hey, help me out here and stall these guys." Or he can collect a bounty or an emerald or anything and you have to beat it out of him.

Even Sonic Forces could've made a great use out of him. Make him one of Eggman's heavies, give him a cool personality, and we're set. He just breaks the mold of the robot or giant machine or ultra powerful creature enemy that this series relied heavily on, and he can be a gadget-based fighter in his funky air bike for something fresh.

I don't know. He's not fleshed out or anything, but what we do have is an awesome concept that's just sitting there that they refuse to do anything with. I pray they find a way to include Fang anywhere.

Shahra
First Appearance: Sonic and the Secret Rings

Shahra is a companion character for a mediocre Wii special game in a story book world of Arabian Nights. She's pretty alright though.

She's got a good genie look that's distinctive, so I can't knock her for that. I feel like she could have looked a little more distinct though?

As a character, she's pretty decent. Like I never had an issue with her in particular, but she's sorta bland? As cheesy as her friendship with Sonic is, it works well enough. I never felt particularly attached to her though, and the ending of the story feels entirely too abrupt to really give an actually solid, definitive conclusion to the character.

I never felt annoyed or bothered by Shahra, so she's got that going for her. She's perfectly fine, but not anyone I really need to see again without something to make her less bland.

Bunnie was fucking great when they didn't try to make her a sex doll in the comics. I know there was an artist in late stages Archie that did a great job toning it down, then they scrapped the look all together for the reboot.

Dr. Gerald Robotnik
First Appearance: Sonic Adventure 2

Man, this guy is actually legit if you just see him in Sonic Adventure 2. Otherwise... it gets messy.

He's an old ass looking Dr. Eggman. I don't need to describe his appearance any more, but it works for what it is. Could do to make him stand out a bit more maybe.

In Sonic Adventure 2, he's the grandfather of Dr. Eggman and his inspiration to be a great scientist, but he's dead by this point. We get told his story through flashbacks and other information, but essentially he created a giant space colony who wanted to figure out how to make people immortal because his granddaughter, Maria, was sick with a fatal disease. He made the Ultimate Life Form... and then it wasn't really the Ultimate Life Form, because he made a new one called Shadow the Hedgehog!

The government said that Shadow was too much of a threat to mankind and decided to arrest Gerald as he tried to send Maria and Shadow away, but Maria got gunned down and Shadow was captured and placed in suspended animation. Gerald saw his granddaughter was killed and lost it and wanted revenge, so he came up with a big ol' plan to have his space colony plummet to the Earth to destroy it, and manipulating Shadow into doing that when he was woken up again. Then he left a message to say fuck the world and was promptly executed.

It's considered a twist by the end of the game that Gerald was really this evil and manipulative, and it's actually done well. I really liked that part where we realize the shit that goes down, and the video he has condemning the world is a major scene.

But then Shadow the Hedgehog happens and... fuck, this is a meeeeeess. So he called upon literal aliens to help make Shadow and enlisted a mother fucker named BLACK DOOM to help him save humanity and his daughter on the promise that Shadow would give him the seven chaos emeralds in 50 years. But in actuality, he made sure that Shadow would actually be the one to STOP Black Doom instead and tried to tell the government that no we need Shadow to stop these spooky aliens in 50 years. And then he left a video that the Chaotix played from Gerald Robotnik says all that he made the Eclipse Canon that blew up the moon to actually blow up Black Doom's comet.

And then he's celebrated like some kind of hero for it when HELLO! HE ALMOST DESTROYED EARTH! THAT WAS BECAUSE OF HIM! Just because his goofy ass cannon destroyed Black Arms and he was meaning to do the right thing doesn't mean that he is in any way a good person in the end! He almost condemned the Earth--twice!

Oh and I guess he made Emerl too idk.

But yeah, the character is good and nuanced but becomes a lot less so with Shadow the Hedgehog factored into it. As a tragic villain, he is good. He's a great part of Shadow's backstory in SA2. But it's just messy as hell with Shadow the Hedgehog's story factored in and it makes him less impactful as a result. But he's got a ton of good about him too.
