  1. Just outta curiosity, what's the reaction to Mighty and Ray in Mania Plus been outside the fanbase?

    Obviously there's going to be a lot of "literally who" but I still kinda wonder if it's an overall positive vibe otherwise.

      I've seen a lot of people wanting Amy instead, mainly because of "literally who".

      I don't mind them but I wish we had playable Fang instead who's more popular than those two.

      Educated guesses:

      "Oh great, new irrelevant shitty friends that are gonna take the spotlight from who really matters"

      "Why did they make Shadow an Armadillo?"

      "They put a Tails clone in a game right next to Tails?!?!"

      Real Talk, does anyone really care about Mighty and Ray as characters, or are they only relevant because it's a meme that they're forgotten characters?

      I think Mighty has some fans, but I'm pretty sure almost nobody gives a crap about Ray

      @Rusty SpyLess for the characters and more for the mechanics they could bring to the table since they are such interesting choices.

      @MegasonicZXLike what? All Mighty has is a wall kick which is something that should be standard for Sonic anyway, and Ray's only possible abilities are the same as Tails and Knuckles.

      I'll give the Mania devs a chance to make something unique for these two but they inherently are not special in their own right.

      I had to explain it to the guys in work...the reaction was "Oh. That's okay I guess."

      I give a crap about Ray. I'd like to think I'm not a nobody...

      When I preordered my copy of Mania Plus both staff there were pretty happy to see Mighty and Ray.

      Mighty's walljump in Chaotix is unique in that you can leave the wall in any direction. That might not sound like much, but on top of giving more versatile movement around walls it allows him to climb sheer vertical faces crazy fast just by jumping and re-clinging directly upwards, which seems like a worthy tradeoff for a lack of midair abilities otherwise.

      Ray's obviously got nothing canon going for him yet but at the very least it's not hard to imagine him influencing his speed by diving and ascending while gliding. Like a less shitty version of Sonic 2 GG's hang glider.

      @Rusty SpyIt's less because of the things that they (or mighty) has been shown to do before but more because of possible new mechanics that get added to them. I have full faith that team mania will make these two really cool to play as and the prospect of that excites me a little more than the characters themselves (admittedly I have always liked mighty' s design though). Also what BL said.

      FFS everyone forgets that they are in the comics(screw off with the "the comics are niche" excuse

      They are in the comics, and a lot of people love them in there, not only that their personalities have a lot of unused potential (Mighty being a pacifist character for example)

      Otherwise they are pretty much completely new characters

      Also Amy will have her chance soon, Mighty and Ray back in the series is just awesome so shaddup.

    13. Maxtiis


      My best friend who cares little for Sonic knew who Mighty was but had no clue about Ray. I just showed him footage of SegaSonic the Hedgehog and he understood it from there. Funny enough he said it looked like Mario Party. He already knew about Sonic Shuffle being...what it is, but it made me wish Sonic had something of an equivalent to Mario Party that was actually good.

      @Mightyray the only reason I said "almost" was because I was thinking of you lol
