Sonic Boom TV Show to Feature Shadow?

Recommended Posts

Hey all!
I've never actually created my own topic here on SSMB, so tell me if this is redundant or in the wrong place. However, I've picked up some rather interesting news while scrolling through Facebook; some Sonic Boom cast listings show Kirk Thornton as not only voice acting Orbot, but also Shadow. I've attached the image I snagged off the post.
So what do you guys think? I mean, I can't easily see this being a listing error, because Shadow was only in the Boom universe through the games, and I don't think the credits could have been mixed up.

On every source I see, they said if shadow were to appear in sonic boom the tv show "sega would announce it in their own special way"

But if you got that from the credits from the show, maybe they do actually plan on just doing that... eventually....

Moving to the Boom forum.

But yeah, I'm interested to see how the characters appear in the more slice of life style of the TV show.  That is, assuming they don't suddenly change direction in the second season. (Though usually when that happens, it's from a darker and more serious tone to a lighter one, so it doesn't seem likely that they would just get serious in the second season)

Despite being indifferent to how Shadow is portrayed now, I would be interested in seeing how the Boom writers would handle him. They have knocked the charactisation out of the park so far, I have no doubt they could turn Shadow around too.

I'm kinda hoping they throw Shadow in as an already established character like they have with all the other characters, it would be satisfying if they left it up to fan interpretation :)

It would also be funny if he was portrayed as the one character who acknowledges how stupid and immature the heroes act at times XD

 

"I'm surrounded by idiots..." -_-'

I'd like to see him as...well, I dunno. Maybe someone who's the only one in on the joke, and could do everything the heroes do himself, but just doesn't because he knows the universe is stupid and he gives too few shits to care. Sort of like Gaz from invader Zim, with shades of Rick from Rick and Morty

 

I was actually going to say I wanted to see him as sort of a psychopathic character, who isn't necessarily trying to take over the world or even do evil, but just likes to cause as much mayhem and pain to the main characters (heroes and villains) as possible. But I think that would be a better place for Metal Sonic to take once he inevitably separates from Eggman.

Eh... I really don't want Shadow to appear in the Boom TV series. I hated his portrayal in Rise of Lyric and I don't really want to see more of that. Though, to the TV show writers' credit, they might make his Boom incarnation's obnoxious personality slightly entertaining? I dunno, can't be much worse than dumb Knuckles or Amy the Sensitivity Trainer. I'm cautious, but even if I dislike it, I have a feeling the show will make me laugh when he comes in anyway.

They'd be mad if they don't, since Shadow has become a huge character in the main series, so they can't drop him from the side series. And there has already been many indications he'll be in the show.

If he makes it in, Shadow is going to be the "unfunny."

TV Tropes? Are yer mad? Some people are trying to be productive.

Like what? There was only one thing were they said apparently "Perci" is going to be in the show with a new voice actor, yet she still hasn't showed up, the only thing we got for shadow is

"SEGA would announce it in their own special way."

 

yet still nothing. But really though I think shadow would be hilarious if he was in the show, his dark personality combined with the stupidness of the SB universe would be lol

Here's how we should introduce Shadow:

They should have an episode called "The Fake", showing a Robot Sonic on the title card and online preview, but silhouetted so you just see his eyes, with the text saying a "fan-favorite character" will return. Then, have the episode start Eggman build a different robot Sonic than the one we're used to. Eggman then says "Your objective is to destroy Sonic the Hedgehog!". The robot promptly self-destructs, and Orbot comments that it thought it was Sonic.

Then the entire rest of the episode focuses on Shadow showing up.

Judging from screenshots and clips, it seems Shadow is being portrayed as the unfunny, so unfunny he doesn't even crack a smile. Yesss!

Can't believe we have to wait so damn long for the episode tho. It better not disappoint like the Metal Sonic one did.
