Sonic-related pet peeves?

Recommended Posts

Another pet peeve of mine is that the Sonic OVA has, probably, the most interesting versions of all of the characters and the world Sonic and Co. live in, yet we haven't seen a shred of influence from it in anything. Think about how many things it has that most everyone wants.

Metal Sonic ACTUALLY being a badass and a threat? Check.

Hilarious Eggman characterization? Check.

Interesting, imaginative world (fantasy up top, real world below, as Wraith put it)? Check.

Sonic's character done EXTREMELY right? Check.

Same for Tails? Check.

Same for post-3 Knuckles? Check (although this Knuckles is almost an entirely different character than the one in the games, his "older brother" attitude toward Sonic is wonderful).

Cool Final Boss? Check.

Nearly bare breasts? Check.

Anyway, the OVA was baws. We need more stuff like it.

If they're going to write Sonic as a dick, it should be done like the OVA. Sonic was just the right amount of dickishness in that movie, in that he could still be likable.

In Fleetway, he kind of paid for his dickishness with the death of his friend, although that was all the way at the end...

I never noticed that about Blaze! Also, what's with the red orb on her head? Is it an accessory? Is it pernamently stuck in her skull? Does it have any connection to her powers, the Sol Emeralds, her position etc.?

I think it's a jewel, and I do believe it's meant to be a Bindi. Here's what Wiki have to say if you're curious:

A bindi (Hindi: बिंदी, from Sanskrit bindu, meaning "a drop, small particle, dot"), or a bottu/tikuli is a forehead decoration worn in South Asia (particularly India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Mauritius) and Southeast Asia. Traditionally it is a bright dot of red color applied in the center of the forehead close to the eyebrows, but it can also consist of a sign or piece of jewelry worn at this location.

You can read the full article here. It would appear Shahra has one too.

My guest is Sonic Team added it to the designs to make them look "exotic". Or maybe they were going for a bit of multi-cultualrism, but I doubt it.

Her muzzle is covered in white fur, and her inner ears are furless. There's no real pattern though, considering Tails has fur in both places and Rouge doesn't have any in either. Blaze probably would look better with white inner ears though.

Hmm. I think it's debatable whether the "flesh tone" is actually bald skin, or just toned fur/markings. My problem is that Blaze has two colours for her basic body pallete - Usually the colour of the ears is the same colour as the muzzle. Blaze seems to be the only exception.

Also, I can't tell from the lighting on my computer... but does Blaze have a white belly patch like on Sonic/Tails/Mighty/Big, or is it just completely purple - Like Amy's supposed to be? This is the only outfit where we get to see her stomach.

Makes wonder if Sonic team have a detailed designs of the entire crew and their fur markings. Probably not.

Purple belly. It's hard to see in that render, but you can see it fine here:

Yeah, with the beige ears and white fur elsewhere, Blaze has an extra colour on her body. Even Big only has purple and white. It's an odd choice. I'm sure it's skin though. That's the colour Sonic Team use for the character's skin, and it's smooth instead of textured.

I've never seen the OVA but I've heard that in it, Sonic was kind of a dick. And I read somewhere else that Sonic and Tails were "at odds" with one another, or something like that. But again, I haven't seen it... So is that true? Or is part of it true? I guess I'm just asking for input on what I heard tongue.png

Y'know, you never see many people wanting OVA Sonic's voice actor to voice him in the games compared to those who want Jaleel White or Ryan Drummond or Jason Griffith.

Probably 'cause he sounds like a British Male 4Kids Rouge, guvna.

It's subtle, but Cream's inner ears are slightly pink, a colour which doesn't appear to be present elsewhere on her body. Marine's are different to her muzzle as well, but at least that colour matches the pattern around her eyes. It would appear that Sonic Team likes to keep the inside of their girls' ears strictly hairless.

Like anything, that pic can be taken out of context to the nth degree.

You want to know a pet peeve of mine?

Being attacked for my opinion; you know, having people say it's 'wrong' or 'how can you like this shit' or something like that.

An attitude like that is nothing short of pathetic. So I adore Unleashed and hate SA2. Big whoop. It's my opinion and I am damn well entitled to it. So you've got people that think Colors is better than the Adventures or the Classics. Or you have people that love SA2 but can't stand Colors and Unleashed. Who the hell cares? If everyone liked or hated the same thing, you know how boring the world would be? Very much so.

Speaking of which, people who shove their opinions down other people's throats are something I can't stand either.

I'm glad I'm not alone in this.

You do realize that most of the time people are joking and I don't think anybody here actually thinks any opinion is "wrong" right?

Dude, she's talking about outside of SSMB, where most people ARE serious about it.

But sometimes it's hard to tell.

For instance, when I'm talking to someone who happens to like Sonic 06, I make it clear that I disagree, but usually let them go about their business provided they're not harassing anyone else about it, and even then I try to stay civil enough. On the other hand, a typical "WTF" or "You're wrong", phrases that are frequent in places in and out the internet, can easily go the wrong way and go driving instantly into Shittown.
