  1. It was "15-16" in the Japanese version of Sonic Jam. It was only "16" in the American/European editions.
  2. "Approximate age: 18 (but it's kind of hard to tell)." The Japanese version of Sonic Jam lists his age as "15-16". It wasn't until Sonic Adventure that he was given a definitive age, 15. He's been 15 ever since. Amy, Knuckles, Vector and Espio's ages all changed between the Classic series and the Modern series, some getting older and some getting younger. Charmy is also younger than his original American age (he wasn't given an age in Japan).
  3. Which model sheets are you referring to? The ones seen in Sonic Jam didn't have any definitive heights. The Classic Sonic cast model sheets in the art assets DVD (circa 2008/2009) did have the Sonic Adventure era heights on them, but this was before Sonic Generations, where we saw the two Sonics side by side for the first time. The art has also been modified from the originals. Compare the original Knuckles to the modified Knuckles, for example. The stripe on Knuckles' shoe is the biggest tell that these changes were made years after the fact. The yellow stripes on his shoes were curved in all the art from Sonic 3 through to the 1998 Sega calendar. In all the 21st century Classic Knuckles art the stripes are made of straight lines. A lot of the "old" art on 21st century Classic Sonic merchandise has been updated from the originals in subtle ways.
  4. G.I. Joe, Transformers and My Little Pony are all Hasbro properties.
  5. Some of these weren't "actual" names for the character, they were supposed to be disparaging nicknames Sonic would use. https://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?posts/268747/ Other relevant links: https://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?posts/268804/ https://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?posts/268696/ https://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?posts/412455/ https://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?threads/dr-badvibes.6657/
  6. Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles were released in that period.
  7. It would be grossly irresponsible. “Environmentalism can be a bad thing” is a poor message to send children in a world on the verge of environmental collapse. There’s no “both sides”.
  8. I don't think having a villainous environmentalist would be a good look, given that we're on the verge of climate change disaster while world leaders put corporate interests before the future of human and animal life.
  9. Those taller characters are the Sonic the Hedgehog Band members. Max (monkey), Mach (rabbit) and Sharps (parakeet/parrot). Vector is in another one.
  10. They were in production at the same time. Sonic the Hedgehog began development first, then Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog came about as a compromise when ABC balked at the idea of extra Sonic the Hedgehog episodes being produced for syndication.
  11. When you begin a sentence with "Actually" it implies that the thing you're responding to is factually incorrect. I didn't mention the cartoon characters at all.
  12. Sega owns all the IDW Sonic comic characters. The previous comic's character rights problems came from '90s era Archie messing up by either not getting the writers/artists to sign work for hire contracts, or losing their records of the work for hire contracts. After that fiasco, there's no way anyone involved would allow that to happen again.
  13. Baku baku basically translates to "chomp chomp".
  14. Misleading thread. Does this sound like it's something Iizuka is actively looking into?
  15. Maekawa mentioned something about a feeling of connection between Sonic 2006 and Sonic Rush, but he was quite vague about it. https://twitter.com/mizuhano/status/1010563445068976128 Silver's chronology is fairly straightforward: Sonic 2006 (events get undone), Sonic Rivals (meets Sonic for the "first" time), Sonic Rivals 2, Sonic Colours DS (meets Blaze for the "first" time, but they have a sense of deja vu). The others are kind of vague. Sonic and Tails never interact with Blaze in Sonic 2006, and they don't (knowingly) interact with Eggman Nega in Rivals 1 and 2. But, since Sonic and Blaze appear in at least one scene together in 2006, but don't acknowledge each other, it makes more sense if they don't know each other at that point. It also makes more sense if Eggman and Eggman Nega's team-ups in the two Rush games take place before the Rivals games, where they are enemies. So: Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) Sonic Rush Sonic Rush Adventure Sonic Rivals Sonic Rivals 2
  16. https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Burger_King?file=Burger_King_Sonic_R_2.jpg Does anyone recognise the robot in the lower right? The one in the lower left is Cluck from the DiC Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon, so I imagine this is also from one of the cartoons. EDIT: I've found a screenshot of it: https://66.media.tumblr.com/b4b793d553de437732f72c62ee006383/tumblr_inline_pn5g6tHx2R1rupio6_500.png The walker robot in the lower left. Does it have a name? Does anyone know which episode(s) it appears in?
  17. As I said, "As long as you assume it takes place before Shadow the Hedgehog there's no real reason to dismiss it." Let's not forget that Sonic Battle was released slightly before Sonic Heroes, so its story was "out of order" from the beginning. Sonic Battle itself makes reference to Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Heroes. Sonic Battle is then referenced in Sonic Advance 3. So it certainly has two-way ties to other games in the series. For whatever it's worth, Emerl's character profile (with new artwork) was added to Sonic Channel sometime between 9th April 2007 and 18th April 2007. So Sonic Battle's story was considered a relevant part of the Sonic series even a year and a half after the release of Shadow the Hedgehog.
  18. Sonic Team have never come out and said that Sonic Battle is non-canon. Obviously, the core series home console platformers will always take precedence over handheld spinoffs, but Sonic Battle fits as comfortably into the Sonic canon as any other game of that era. As long as you assume it takes place before Shadow the Hedgehog there's no real reason to dismiss it.
  19. The only order that makes sense is: Sonic Heroes > Shadow the Hedgehog > Sonic Battle There's nothing that majorly contradicts this, so it's best to consider this the correct continuity.
  20. The main prologue talks about Eggman's ambition to obtain the Chaos Emeralds, just like Sonic 1, 2, 3D etc. It doesn't say that he actually managed to obtain them before the start of the game. Re-read the Knuckles prologue. He notices the Death Egg near the lake, not in the sky. He doesn't encounter Eggman until a few days after the Chaos Emeralds disappeared. That is a bit of an odd one. After the credits of Sonic 3's bad ending, Knuckles is seen with the Chaos Emeralds that Sonic/Tails didn't retrieve from the Special Stages. So it can be inferred that Knuckles put the Chaos Emeralds into the Special Stages for safekeeping, to keep them out of Sonic's hands.
  21. The Chaos Emeralds vibrated and vanished. There's nothing in the text that says Eggman stole them.

  23. I'm not sure which translation you read, but this isn't what happened. The 7 Chaos Emeralds Knuckles was guarding on the Floating Island mysteriously disappeared. Eggman didn't steal them.
