Awoo.

What characters from non-game Sonic media would you put in the games?

Throughout the history of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise there has been different types of media to promote the games. Chief among them being animation. Lots of these animated shows have characters entirely of their own creation and are not derived from the games at all.

Several of these characters have gained considerable popularity among fans and as a result is demanded to be inserted into the Sonic game canon. Probably the most notable examples are the Freedom Fighters from Sonic SatAM, who have gone on to become central characters in the Archie Sonic comics and are some of the most demanded characters from the IDW Sonic comic.

Which character from Sonic media that isn't a video game would you like to see make an appearance in the games? This includes characters from all Sonic TV animated shows.

The Freedom Fighters is the most obvious choice.  Not only did they have good chemistry with Sonic and Tails, but the fact that they are a group of fighters who are fighting against Robotnik's reign of terror would actually fit in well with the game setting as Sonic and his friends are actually fighting against Eggman and having the freedom fighters in the mix would really make sense for the narrative.  Also, it would be a great way for Sonic to interact with other groups of people who are not the game characters as it could provide interesting dynamics for Sonic and the Freedom Fighters.

Your question isn't quite the same as the one you ask in the topic header; and easier, too.  Probably just about every non-game Sonic character has somebody pushing for them to be canonised.

Personally, I'd root for Tekno the Canary and Shortfuse the Cybernik from Fleetway's Sonic The Comic.  Both of them have very Sonicky designs which are also individually distinctive, and occupy fairly clear roles which also aren't a million miles from being relevant.  But I don't delude myself into thinking this is an especially original opinion...
