  1. It would be cool if they added in Chaos 3 and 5 boss fights since we never saw those forms! Maybe even make a Chaos mini-game where you play as him going on a rampage through Station Square racking up points or something.
  2. I always thought it was neat that in the UK comics Super Sonic was a psychotic, alternate form. There would be desperate times where he was needed, but it would be risky considering his unpredictable nature; and whether or not he would revert back to "regular Sonic." Also in Sonic Underground the Chaos Emeralds actually causing chaos all over Mobius was pretty neat; like with UK Super Sonic there's the unpredictability factor; collecting them means power but also catastrophe.
  3. Okay but, that opening shot of South Island complete with that little piano melody is just pure magic! Honestly I choked up a bit. That shot is what the franchise is all about for me!
  4. Eggman wore a red cardigan as a child. Knuckles likes digging to clear his head/take his mind off things. Sonic is finicky about his quills looking "cool."
  5. How awesome would it be after successfully entering Sonic's world for Jim-botnik to proclaim "It worked! That 'hog can't escape me that easily! I am the EGGMAN!!"
  6. Definitely a HUGE improvement over the previous trailer all around. With Carrey's signature acting and Sonic's better look, this is looking like an okay time! Also, I honestly loved the Carrey Eggman dancing bit; its in his character imo. (Plus Eggman's always emitted that kind of unexplainable majesty lol.)
  7. I've said it once and I'll say it until the end of time: Helen should've been the main human character. A handicapped girl being able to go on adventures and see the world with Sonic and friends is just an infinitely better premise. I can just imagine all the wholesome goodness that would come with it! Also how much more sense would it of been for her to remind Shadow of Maria instead of Chris? Its such a shame she was hardly in the show and only got one episode focused on her. Though in that episode the chemistry with Sonic and Helen was much more real and believable; I never got the vibe that Sonic truly liked being with Chris despite the show trying to tell the contrary. So yeah, even though I liked X overall, Helen being a main character would've been a HUGE step up for the show. (Also I always loved that she seemed to wear the pants in her relationship with Chris when they got older, and that she was a better driver than him too lol)
  8. There was that episode Hedgehog Hunt, where he threatens Team Sonic and the Chaotix about a Metarex fleet surrounding the planet they're hiding on. Only to use his own Egg Crimson disguised as the Blue Typhoon to take the fall for them. This even gets his lackeys frustrated; why does he want to both destroy and protect Sonic? He never even brings this up in future episodes to wipe in their faces or anything. Who does that? The Eggman does. (It always bugged me how Sonic AND Vector kind of knew about this, but never told anyone else; unless it was a dub thing.)
  9. I think I remember reading somewhere that SoA didn't think Classic Eggman looked evil and/or ugly enough for a Western audience. So that's where the AoStH and SatAM designs came in. The "West-ification" of the Classic design always gave me Yosemite Sam vibes: Whether it be rabbits or hedgehogs, they're always out to get 'em! Personally, I would've been fine with just this look during Eggman's early years in the West; as opposed to the AoStH and SatAM designs.
  10. I've got a bunch of Knuckles stuff, courtesy of Archie: Evidently Knuckles has balloon hands. I forgot how mature the comics got lol. (I love Axer's work for the record) Well to be fair for Knux, he IS alone on an island most of the time. Also here's that Knuckles shower scene you never knew you needed!
  11. If "Jim Eggman" throws back his head angrily screaming "HEDGEHOOOOOOOGGG!" at any point, I'll be happy lol
  12. I should've clarified that the exaggerated expressions were what gave off a Ren & Stimpy vibe for me. Particularly how he smiles after "meow?", when he's screaming, and after he faints. That's definitely not a style we'd ever see Sega roll with in modern stuff.
  13. I was going to see if his vid was mentioned here. Yeah his animation is good technically speaking; but the way he did it for Sonic is way too Ren & Stimpy. Yours is much more in line with how Sonic actually expresses emotions. Also why does every popular Youtuber have to hammer in that they're "most definitely not/never been Sonic fans" when they probably are. Seriously its like the one taboo for them. :/
  14. Calling him a "meathead" or "idiot" is an extreme simplification in of itself. Why would one call him either of those when "Buff-ckles" exists? If anything "Buff-ckles" only further drove the misconception that Knuckles has always been that way.
  15. I've always thought using "idiot" to describe Knuckles' personality was too broad and harsh. Sure he can be naïve when judging others, and gung-ho when it comes to fighting; but he's not an idiot. You can't just write off his personality as dumb when he's also shown levelheadedness in other things such as being well-versed in the ancient, long forgotten elements that Sonic and others have come to rely on him for. When I think of an "idiot" character I think of Boom Knuckles or Cubot.
