  1. Honest question: of all the changes to make to Sonic’s design, why are BLUE ARMS such a freaking deal-breaker to so many people?

    It’s the least intrusive change you could possibly make to this character.

      They're not distracting or anything so I guess those people are just purists?

      It's such a strange strange hill for the film makers to die in. They've basically pulled everything about Sonic back to his normal game design, only proportioned and detailed differently (eg fur) to fit into the live action setting. All that's left are his blue arms and two separate eyes. Neither is better or worse than normal, hear different for the sake of being different. Why bother?

      Maybe to you. Not to me.

      It doesn't look right or even good since it makes his arms blur and vanish into the design when they're specifically designed to stand out and much more to the point, it's wrong. If they were always blue, that'd be one thing, but they've literally never been that way officially and it's a mistake westerners in particular seem to always make since anytime someone who knows jackshit about Sonic tries to design him or sees a picture of him, they always color his arms wrong or go "Duh, why aren't his arms blue? I don't follow the series, but weren't they always like that??" and it's really irritating. They've been peach/light tan for 28 FUCKING YEARS!

      ...So yeah, it's just annoying to me, is all. I don't like it and no argument for them will ever change my mind.

      it's such a common mistake for off-model sonics that people are hypersensitive to noticing it

      They were literally that way officially in a game that came out just a few years ago. Seemed a bit like an overreaction when people took a big issue with it then too.

      @Blue Blood you’re not really trying to suggest the separated eyes are “change for the sake of change” are you?

    7. JezMM


      To be honest I didn't even notice the arms are still blue so it's a big whatever to me lol.  Guess I'm still used to it from Boom.

      @Waveshocker Sigma Artistic liberties maybe? The colour of Sonics arms whether blue or peach doesn't add or take away anything from the character. As for his peach arms being designed to stand out when in motion, I disagree. Unless it's a close up shot Sonic is usually shown as a, well, "blue blur" when in motion. You couldn't see his arms let alone other specifics for that matter.

      I'm so confused why people are annoyed by having his arms fur colored when like 80% of the franchise's characters have fur colored arms

      @Tornado By "Official" I mean "main series". Besides, you're not seriously counting Boom as a good example of it, are you? Cause we'll definitely have to agree to disagree on that.

      @Thigolf Because those characters started off that way and looked good with it, so it wasn't a problem? Most of those characters also don't have the same kind of color patterns as he and Amy do, either, so expectations are different.

      It's really not that confusing, but whatever. Ya'll like what you like.

    11. Tornado


      All of those characters started with black eyes.

      Sonic with blue arms makes me think that he was manscaping in the past
