  1. We all know Knuckles is the dutiful guardian of the all powerful Master Emerald (which, for some reason, hasn't been relevant to the plot in long time), protecting it and Angel Island from outside threats. However, I can't help but feel it limits his potential. For starters, he's supposed to guard it 24/7, yet somehow has time to be a commander in the resistance as well as go on a multitude of adventures with Sonic and co. For this reason alone, I think the Master Emerald should be eliminated from the story. Knuckles could literally be doing anything else. Second, for him to (logically) be relevant in the story, something has to threaten the M.E. or Angel Island as a whole. In order to have Knuckles in multiple stories, we can't continue to reuse that storyline lest it becomes repetitive. So what do you think?
  2. The title says it all. Pretty much is there a concept that did not make it into the games that you are glad or disappointed about? For me, I have two: 1) Venice the mink and 2) The multitude of potential species for avatars in Sonic Forces (dragons, mice, monkeys etc.)
  3. I personally think SEGA pulled a stupid move by making the classic and modern eras different dimensions. This not only further destroyed Sonic's all ready inconsistent lore, it also limited creativity and makes it where classic fan-favorite characters like Fang, Bean, Bark, Mighty, and Ray can't even make appearances in the IDW comics. Smooth move, SEGA.
  4. Really? He seems more like a Dairy Queen guy.
  5. I guess that's valid given that Shadow was meant to be a dark counterpart to Sonic.
  6. If you count teleportation, Chaos Control, etc., then yes. If not, Sonic is still faster overall. On the subject of Chaos Control, if Shadow can stop time and teleport, why does he even need to move as fast as Sonic? That treads deep into Mary Sue territory.
  7. The series only had "too many characters" when SEGA tried to squeeze them all into one game rathers than featuring those who were relevant to the plot.
  8. This. While I agree that the shonen anime type story isn't really for Sonic, it shouldn't be a comedy based series either.
  9. Unpopular: Archie and IDW comics treats the characters better than the main game series ever will.
  10. Amy in Sonic X would be my top pick for most nerve-racking voice if Cream didn't exist.
  11. Basically when a series (like DBZ and DBS) begins to ignore equally integral (or at least beloved) supporting characters to focus on the MC and maybe a another character (i.e. Vegeta). On paper this doesn't seem bad due to the main character being the central focus, however, when supporting characters who were once competent and independent become useless damsels who rely on the MC to save their tails, that's when you have a problem. I understand that, however it is evident that SEGA also cares about the classic-era fans' opinions considering the last 3 or so games have pandered to them by having Classic Sonic, Green Hill Zone, etc.
  12. IMHO, the fanbase. Believe it or not, SEGA actually listens. How do you think we got the custom character in Sonic Forces? The fanbase used to complain about Sonic's "shitty friends". Now that they've been reduced to cheerleaders and spectators, all of a sudden the fandom wants them to be playable again. While I agree that a company should listen to the people, they ultimately have to do what is best for business. The series also suffers from what I call "Toriyama Syndrome".
  13. There are some who are against having humans at all and there are some who are against the photorealistic Final Fantasy-esque humans. Humans are okay, as long as they look like the ones from Unleashed. As for the question itself, many of those people grew playing the classic games (where storytelling/worldbuilding was minimal) or watching the SATAM cartoon (where Robotnik and Snivley were the only humans).
  14. I feel that Shadow's power should just be chaos manipulation. Having him be as fast as Sonic and strong as Knuckles makes him (look) OP. Also, Knuckles should just have his strength.
  15. Oh yeah! I totally forgot about Tails' Sky Patrol. If only they could appear in a modern game. And Team Hooligan, too. I wonder what would happen if they were to collide. Bark and Bearenger could bear knuckle box.
  16. Decisions, decisions, decisions. So many to list, but I'll keep it concise. Archie's story arcs (Post-SGW) More independent females i.e. Tangle Not having Sonic be the Goku of the series (What I loved most about Archie is that it allowed other characters to have their moments to shine) Tension/adversity that feels natural One world where humans and mobians coexist More character interaction Bean and Bark appearing as antagonists alongside Fang (cause I can't see them any other way) Fleetway Sonic or Dark Sonic Tiara Boobowski (I know. This is a scrapped concept rather than different continuity but I couldn't resist) Mammoth Mogul (Yes!) Ixis/Walter Naugus Wendy Naugus and her witchcarters The eclipse saga There's more, but I wanted to keep this as short as possible.
  17. The blue arms in this particular artwork makes Sonic look like he has on sleeves.
  18. This is basically what I'm trying to get at. In past games (mainly the Sonic Adventure series), the supporting cast were capable and competent, but not in a way that drew attention away from Sonic.
  19. With Sonic Force coming close to its 2nd Anniversary, I thought I'd go on a friendly rant about what irked me the most about the game: Sonic's friends being shown as defenseless or incompetent without him around. Yes, I know Sonic is the titular character and he is ultimately the one who saves the day, however, that shouldn't come at the expense of other characters' competence. In Forces we have Vector mentioning how without Sonic there is no hope, Knuckles failing a raid or something (only mentioned IIRC), Silver getting thrashed by Infinite (though in his defense, Sonic did too), and last but not least, Tails cowering before Chaos 0 (when he defeated Chaos 4) and crying for Sonic to save him. So, we're really just making the other characters defenseless now, Sega? Not surprising, considering the series has become like DBZ in the fact that characters such as Knuckles, Tails, etc. have taken a backseat while Sonic, Shadow, and Silver hog (no pun intended) all the glory. Now that I think about it, the only one's who directly fought Infinite were Sonic, Shadow, and Silver. The others just fought a bunch of clones.
  20. Agreed. However, I do have one problem. The Sonic body shapes. I understand that would require more animation and designs, but an anthropomorphic dragon, gorilla, horse, deer, cow, or bear should not share the scrawny 3'3 body type. They should at least be the size of Vector.
