    From a new fan to old fans;
    I've been a fan since around 2017, so the core cast has basically been set in stone for me for a while. But in my journeys across this fanbase, it seems there was a lot of ill-will towards Silver back in the day, likely because of his debut game. Is that true? And does any of it persist now?

    If I wrote a story set in an AU where Eggman's the good guy, I wonder what I should call his robots.
    "Badniks" doesn't exactly work for a hero, and I feel like "Goodniks" is a little too on the nose.

    But you'd think the people criticizing Space Jam 2 for using "Big Chungus" would know that "Big Chungus" was just Bugs doing an Elmur Fudd impression...which is exactly what he was doing in the movie.

    Twitter Takeover Shadow is the best the character has ever been, and I'm not saying that ironically or for the memes.
    It's pretty much the only time we've seen Shadow relax and just hang out with people like an actual person.
    He's still his grumbly standoffish self, but something about him just casually chatting about dumb everyday life topics makes him feel way more "human" than he does most of the time. Even though Team Dark are supposedly his closest friends, we only ever see him talk to them about the mission they're currently on, not engaging in much actual friendly banter in the games.

    "Normal plumber from Brooklyn who accidentally becomes the hero of another world" has more intrigue to me than "Dude's been a hero since he was literally a baby."

    Bowser's Fury's final boss with Open Your Heart...
    «video» REALLY made me realize how similar this sequence is to the Perfect Chaos fight! It takes place in a rainstorm, you're gliding along the water, jumping off ramps, dodging lazers and fireballs... and of course there's the part (I believe beforehand) where you go "Super".
    It's super cool, good to see Mario get some edge and spirit, I think it's been lacking that recently.

    I don't want to derail Kuzu's comment thread about Shadow positivity, but I wanted to respond to a point Dio made in the thread.

    "shadow is only level 1 cool, cool by doing things that are widely agreed to be cool. what's really cool is being cool while doing things that are lame."


    And I got to thinking about that. Not about Shadow specifically, but more generally about this reply. So this isn't meant to be a slight at Kuzu's thread at all, again.

    So let's talk about Wario.
    Superficially, Wario has a lot of the same shtick Shadow does; He's absurdly powerful, he rides a motorcycle, and of course he has that whole "dark counterpart of the hero" thing.

    But I think because his personality is so abrasive and comedic and not conventionally "cool," Wario (perhaps ironically) only comes off as even more of a badass when he's elbow-charging his way through hordes of foes. Because you don't  necessarily expect someone who looks and acts like Wario to be a competent fighter and adventurer. (in contrast to Shadow, who's designed and acts like a slick anime rival) 
    The director of Shake It said it best:


    And overall, I agree with this take on the character. Wario, the garlic-munching, money-grubbing, short-tempered little weirdo that he is - who nonetheless has taken down pirates, demons, and even gods with his bare hands - is perhaps the very picture of "being cool by being lame."

    Is Minecraft the first time Eggman's been referred to with the first name "Ivo" in-game? 
    I know the Ivo name's been around since the Sonic 1 manual and has shown up in comics and cartoons, but I don't think the games themselves have ever acknowledged it until now.

    Honestly, Heavy King is one of the more unique "Eggman traitor" type of villains, in part because he and Eggman ultimately share the position of final boss - fighting each other and Sonic at the same time.
    It's a concept I'd like to see more fleshed out in the future, perhaps a battle where Eggman and the other villain get to actually be on-screen simultaneously and are even capable of damaging each other. (Maybe luring one of them to attack the other would even be part of the strategy for beating them?)
