  1. Honestly, if there ever had to be an in-canon explanation for Sonic’s eye colour change, I’d want to be like what StC did. Their take on it was genius and made so much sense.

      And how did it explain Tails, Knuckles and Amy's eyes changing colour? It's one of those things where am explanation so should never be attempted, because anything comes off as unnecessary and forced.

      Agreed. The only times Tails canonically used the Emeralds was in Heroes, but that was after the eye change. He otherwise used them power to his tech. 

      And why are Knuckles eye's purple? He guards the Master Emerald, not the Master Amethyst.

      Then there's Amy, who never went super at all. (Fighters doesn't count)

      Incidentally the other three all got coloured eyes in the SA1 arc without an explanation.

      ...Though they weren't the correct colours. I assume the five seconds of footage or w/e SEGA showed to them only had Sonic, Eggman (hence Robotnik switching to the new outfit), the ancient echidnas, and I...guess Chaos? (I don't understand how his StC design happened.)

      Something about the lingering effects of the Chaos Emeralds causing him to permanently retain the green eyes of Super Sonic ala Sonic 3. Or maybe it had something to do with Chaos? I don't quite remember. I just know that it was contrived.

      @Blue Blood Sonic got trapped in Chaos’ body in their first encounter, and the prolonged exposure to the chaos energy in his body made his eyes go green.

    6. Blue Blood

      That's contrived.

      @Celestia I can’t remember the exact eye colours in the arc, but to this day StCO portray Tails and Amy as brown-eyed.

    8. Big Panda

      @Blue Blood I don’t see how. Especially compared to Archie’s take on it.

    9. Blue Blood

      I don't know what Archie's take on it was, or what it has to do with whether or not the StC explanation was contrived.

      Sonic's eyes changed colour because he was exposed to Chaos? His entire designed changed. It didn't need any explanation. It's the kind of thing that has no story relevance.

      It was really the only aspect of the redesign StC acknowledged. He stayed the same height, and his shoes didn’t change.

      Archie’s version of it, in which Sonic running around the globe with a super emerald on his back not only caused him to grow taller and get green eyes but also magically added buckles to his shoes (this is straight up acknowledged in-universe btw) was just stupid.

    11. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Archies version is stupid. But it literally has no bearing on the StC version. 

    12. Celestia

      I agree they don't need to explain it and that it's even better off that way, but I imagine that's why this status started with "if there had to be an explanation." XP

    13. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Well, I just don’t really understand what was so contrived about it.

    14. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Explaining it in any way is contrived.

    15. The Deleter

      My headcanon has always been that the more Sonic has been exposing himself to the chaos emeralds, the more the "super" traits have rubbed off on him in his normal form. Eye color, extra moves, chaos powers, afterimage/chaos energy trails, etc. Doesnt hurt that it fits the anime-esque superpower angle the series leans towards either.
