    ThePrinceOfSaiyans reacted to Kuzu in Sonic Characterization at its Best, Worst, and how to move forward.   
    Ya know, I think my biggest peeve with Tails is that his character kind of peaked in the Adventure games, because after that, he doesn't actually DO anything anymore. As in, he takes no initiative himself to do anything without Sonic. So he just ends up feeling superfluous...

    ThePrinceOfSaiyans got a reaction from Writer's Blah in Sonic Characterization at its Best, Worst, and how to move forward.   
    His best incarnation is classic Sonic. I'd argue he appeals to a larger audience, given he isn't given the opportunity to spout cringy dialogue. His actions do the talking, and that's probably for the best.
    My favorite is his Sonic Adventure 2 incarnation. I like this Sonic the most because he's heroic, has attitude, and can speak without making me cringe. 
    The worst is how he's currently portrayed and has been portrayed since Colors. This incarnation of Sonic is pure cringe. That wink wink nudge nudge approach to dialogue is infuriating, and the actual jokes themselves never land. I can't think of a single funny line from not only Sonic, but the rest of the cast, which is a problem given comedy is the focus of this era of Sonic. If you're gonna try and be funny, actually be funny please. 
    Going forward, I'm not sure what the ideal approach would be. Sonic speaks now, and I'm sure getting rid of the voice acting is unlikely. I know I want the comedic approach to go away, and I'd like a more dramatic approach ala Sonic Adventure 2, but I also don't want it to devolve into Shadow the Hedgehog or Sonic '06 levels of nonsense again.

    I feel like Sonic characterization tends to change depending on the era we're in.
     
    The 90's are...pretty self-explanatory when you look at all of the side materials that got popular at the time.
    The 2000's were the Shonen Anime phase when everything was a larger than life conflict that had some deep meaning behind it, usually something like friendship. 
    And now we're in the 2010's with the "self-depreciating ironic" era, where characters constantly make fun of themselves and point out how absurd their world is.
     
     
    So I guess people's preferences are colored by which of these times you grew up in; me being the Shonen Anime trash that I am, it's no secret that I have far more preference for the 2000's era characterization. I dunno, it just felt easier for me to get invested in watching the characters fight these large threats while growing along the way. It sure as hell wasn't perfect and I'm sure there will be plenty of comments that trash that characterization as we always do in this fanbase, but I liked it and I feel there's a good reason that era is still fondly remembered to this day.

    I see it as unoriginal, and by extension boring, but you do you.

    ThePrinceOfSaiyans got a reaction from Supah Berry in The idea that the other characters need to "play like Sonic (with an extra ability)" is narrow-minded and limiting   
    The modern 3D Sonic games are gonna have to venture outside solo-Sonic before we can entertain whether or not the aversion to multiple play styles is needlessly limiting, and I say that as someone who likes Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2.

    ThePrinceOfSaiyans got a reaction from Gumbit in Are the characters the reason why the franchise is still alive?   
    No, I'd argue it has more to do with the spectacle. I personally don't give much of a shit about the characters beyond their abilities and how they affect the gameplay.

    Minus is a travesty that undermines the basis of Goku's and Vegeta's rivalry and the irony of Goku's "heroism". It's the worst thing to carry the Dragon Ball name, and yes, I've seen episode 67 of Dragon Ball Super.

    I fully expect this quote to be in the movie.

    Bardock: "Live as one of them, Kal-El-Karrot, to discover where your strength and your power are needed. Always hold in your heart the pride of your special heritage. They can be a great people, Kal-El-Karrot. They wish to be. They only lack the light to show them the way. For this reason above all, their capacity for good, I have sent them you... my only son."

    No, it's a pun on "Pot". 
    Speaking of name puns, for those that want quick lesson on name puns and the Japanese language, I highly recommend this episode of the Kanzenshuu podcast.
