Oh yeah thanks for reminding me why I didn't like the "American" version of Sonic, it reminded me too much of Mickey mouse with its redesign for the American audience, it made Sonic seem very unoriginal.

thats your problem not mine you're pretty much missing the point does he have a buttface no but sonic has the same thing so you nitpick on him sonic is baced on classic characters and if American sonic makes you want to scoop your eyes out then you have serious problems

just a quick though about AoStH and satAM sonic's having mohawks, it may be down to wanting to save time and money by having less quills to draw rather than an attempt to copy the american design.

Back then companies did everything possible to save money and get the product made as cheaply aspossible, drawing three spines rather than six on the main character for about a hundred 20 minutes episodes, 12 frames a second, weird as it sounds is a massive saving.

I think it's silly that I'd have to like the American design just because I grew up in America looking at that one. I might have not even like that design as a kid. We all have different opinions on this. What's wrong with liking the Japanese design more? I think the Japanese one just looks more natural. He looks more goofy,wacky and a cute as well as well as looking like a badass when needed. And it's been able to show sonics personality and expressions much better IMO. I you like American sonic, cool. Just please don't tell us what we should like.

and if your American why the heck do you like Jap sonic retards it should be Americans like American sonic and Japs should like Jap sonic
Old, but I just had to point out the obvious contradiction.

The bottom quote was part of the top quote.

no the person who made sonic wanted him to be an American character and the Jap version came after made there own sonic and copied Sonic the Hedgehog the first sonic game made

He's a cartoon character he looks the same in every picture because thats his pose and quite calling him "assface" bugs bunny, mickey mouse, daffy duck,... the list goes on and on of American characters that have that all you that call him that are retarded and if your American why the heck do you like Jap sonic retards it should be Americans like American sonic and Japs should like Jap sonic

Again, that bottom quote wasn't originally posted by "Xemnas;" it was quoted from the bounced troll, whose bouncing somehow borked the coding of whatever posts they made that was quoted.

Ironic that he was Americanized to appeal better to the target audience in western countries. And yet the majority of people so far seem to prefer his Japanese design. Just goes to show that some things are better left alone >.<

That depends. A lot of it for many people probably has to do with hindsight. Sonic's design is basically American Kirby is Hardcore gone a bit too far, but it cannot be overstated how much it worked at the time.

Oh for sure! It worked very well at the time. But it does make you ponder what would have changed, if anything, had they kept the design the same in all regions at the beginning. Would it have worked just as well? Would it have been worse? Or maybe better? What would our cartoons have looked like?

As for my personal thoughts, like someone earlier. I never knew about the Japanese style Sonic until I brought Sonic CD. For some reason they never altered the artwork surrounding that title and it won me over instantly. That "Sonic pulling his glove on" pic was and probably still is one of, if not my favorite piece of Sonic artwork. I was sad that Sonic 3 and S&K went back to the American style after being spoiled with all the art from Sonic CD.
