  1. Yknow, even personality wise it's hard to see Classic Sonic in Forces/Gens being the same Sonic from Mania. He acts a lot more cocky an animated in Mania whereas in forces/Gens he's just... cute and quiet and keeps to himself and occasionally nods his head

      I mean in the Mania cutscenes he was essentially like that as well....

      Maybe it's just cause the animation is a lot more bouncy and lively in Mania, but idk, classic doesn't really have much charm in terms of personality in Gens/Forces. I mean even with small things like chemical plant in Mania when that drop lands on him, I get more of a character from him there than in the other two. Idk, just a weird opinion I guess

      I always felt this way about Classic in Gens too.  He's too cute and silly.  In-game classic Sonic looks either very focused and determined (Sonic 1/2/CD) or laid-back and attitudey like his modern-self (Sonic 3).

      I dunno, Gens/Forces Classic Sonic just looks way more like a kid than he did even in his 3D appearances in 3D/R/Jam/Fighters.  When original Sonic taps his foot and looks at the screen the full emotion of that comes across.  When Gens Sonic does it I'm like "awww lookit lil Sonic gettin' grumpgrump *pinches his cheeks*"

      Gens/Forces Classic Sonic always struck me as a little too cute, personally. It always felt off with how he was portrayed, and I can only assume that's done to play off of Modern Sonic when they're together, but I can't say I like it or feel like it's really consistent with any old games or extra materials (like the screensaver illustrations). It just doesn't feel right to me.

      That's not to say Sonic can't have cute or silly moments to go with his character, but it seems like they play those up more to go with the design or just to further illustrate a contrast that doesn't need to be there.

      Like this entire intro to me doesn't seem consistent with the guy we see in Forces

      @KHCast Silly goose, Forces Classic Sonic is just a soulless husk used for profit while Mania was the opposite!

       

      Being serious though, I think it’s the mentality behind it more than anything. It’s clear that Sonic Team seem to see Classic Sonic as a kid, and thus assume he needs to be more cutesy and cuddly looking in his mannerisms. Mania Sonic by contrast treats him less like a younger version of Sonic, and more just regular Sonic with a different art style. Granted I think a younger Sonic could be more like regular Sonic just younger looking, but eh.

      Eh, I think a large part of that feeling can be chalked up to how amazingly Tyson animates him in that opener compared to how stilted the animations often are in ST games. Even in Forces you have moments where Classic will do cocky stuff like attack Eggman as soon as he sees an opening. Not to mention that moment in Gens where he instantly rushes after him when compared to Modern who is ready to stand there and snark a bit.

      Animation style is key in how characters with no speaking roles come off. It can make the same character come off as a completely different entity, like it does here.

      Seriously, Mania sonic does seem to have a lot of personality, but I gotta give points to generations classic sonic for his cocky victory animations and that big grin on his face for falcon kicking classic metal sonic to oblivion.
