  1. I've never seen people so divided about what role is better for Knuckles: not making any appearances so he can stay on Angel Island, or just showing up because people want to play as him. 

    There never seems to be any agreement either.

      have him show up, and then explain why he is there

      Most of the time Eggman is in the middle of conquering the planet or some shit so I think "There's no point in guarding a gem if the whole world has been taken over and has gone to shit" is a fair argument for him to show up.

      Most of the time whatever the hell Eggman is doing doesn't actually affect his island unless it's taken directly to him.

      neither extreme is the right answer because they both neglect something important. he doesn't always have to show up, but when he does they should make some effort to justify it.

      ...I still say they should break the emerald again and put him on a long-term arc of hunting for the pieces to loosen up that restriction without abandoning it entirely.

      I feel like breaking the Emerald for a third time would be kind of comical, especially since it would call into question why this particular emerald hunt would take longer than the others, which only lasted a game.

      ....I really don't actually have an answer for this lol. The best I can think of is to simply not use him at all, but that's not really addressing the problem. 

      Sometimes I feel like Knuckles would have just been better off if he was just a one-shot character and never appeared after Sonic 3.

      its obvious people want knuckles around so there's no reason to deny that and bend over backwards for the 'people who actually care about sonic lore' niche.

      Ignoring past established character traits and simplifying the characters is part of the reason said people kind of hate how Knuckles is treated nowadays though. It's a niche sure, but pissing off longtime fans who have invested in your product isn't exactly good either.

      Give them a semi reasonable explanation like the one dio proposed and they'll get over it.

      Or they won't and they'll keep posting essays on this forum for another 5 years. No one will care.

      Knuckles going from a loner who only cares about one thing to helping out his friends when they need it instead of going "FUCK THEM I GOT MY GEM" would be pretty natural character development imo

      Naw man, they're gonna make video essays about how Knuckles character is ruined.

      They just need to make an actual explanation for why he can leave the Master Emerald on a regular basis. It won't be THAT hard.

      In pre-reboot Archie, they gave Knuckles a warp ring so he can easily travel back and forth between his island and the surface, gave him a sense of duty to protect the whole world and not the Emerald only, and had the Chaotix help him guard the Master Emerald. Frankly, I think all of that can work for the games too, if you tweak what object he uses to teleport (and even then, the warp rings are based on the giant rings from the games, so you might not even have to do that).

      Yes, I even think having the Chaotix help can work in the games even though they're no longer Knuckles' team. They can agree to do it as a "job" because they're having trouble finding new cases. And hilarity ensues when Knuckles isn't able to pay them, or something.

      Let's assume ST does give a shit then; I actually don't have a problem with that, but I feel changing the Chaotix to Knuckles` supporting characters kind of robs them of a bit of autonomy...which isn't that big of a deal in the grand scheme.

      knuckles's squad would be a step up on the totem pole compared to the nothing they are now

      Even in the 2000's games, the Chaotix are largely superfluous so being Knuckles` crew would be a promotion in all honesty.

      Look he has it better than Silver and Blaze. Like one's from the future and the other is from another dimension. At least Knuckles has the excuse of being a treasure hunter so he can leave his Island so he can explore.

      i mean it's been almost 20 years since the last time; at this point it'd be a callback. as for why it'd take longer to collect them all just have some suitably "big" event that scatters them across the entire planet instead of one relatively constrained area. i think what i came up with when i first proposed it was for it to be the climax of a game rather than the start of one; eggman steals it for some new machine, knuckles teams up with sonic to get it back, but in the end has to smash it himself to stop eggman. and it's, i dunno, in a space base so the shards all rain to earth, or the machine collapses into a wormhole and they end up who knows where, and the game ends with knuckles dedicating his life to fixing it.

      Wait, we already got the solution guys. Just give Knuckles his fucking dinosaur.

      Just remembered that stupid ass post that made too much sense to justify this.

      Honestly, if Reboot Archie and even the Forces prequel issue is anything to go by (since it seems heavily implied Chaos leaves the Emerald whenever it wants and Knuckles occasionally spars with it--and that comic is part of the game), they could just say that Knuckles left the Emerald in the care of Chaos.

      Actually never mind, this is perfect.
