Anyone out there with shameful Sonic-related secrets?

Recommended Posts

You're not alone there ;) I too absolutely hate Archie Sonic's personality, what they've mutilated him into; A whorish big mouth with incompetence in the extreme. I also extremely dislike Chronicles' Sonic because of the immensity of the OOC'ness pertaining to his snarky dialogue choices. To me, the dialogue in Chronicles is almost like script you'd see in fanfiction done by an author who has a blatant disregard for both subtlety in the depiction of emotional states of characters and a fixation on turning Sonic into an asshole.

As for Colours Sonic, well, he's been hit by the Flanderization bat. His character was just exaggerated and pimped-out for purpose of lame comedy. It's a far cry from the Sonic depicted in the Storybook games, who was characterized so well that he was funny without being annoying and obnoxious.

Totally, 100% agreed! I remember working my way through the Archie comics, a few years ago now, and it was about the time that Sonic was flirting with about three separate girls at once including Tails' crush I decided he was an asshole who was not the same Sonic I liked in the games. This kind of extends to SatAM and AoStH but I can accept that at least the latter is light-hearted and so the OOC-ness doesn't bother me - they're excused, anyhow, from how much they had to extrapolate character from the source material. I don't give current Archie, Chronicles or Colours that liberty. I don't think Sonic has to be a jerk or a whore just to be snarky, or have attitude. He can be quick and witty regardless; SatSR and SBK were definitely some of his crowning characterisation moments I think. Colours-Sonic did the snark better...but way, way too obnoxious. +rep to you for putting it way better than I ever would be able to.

There goes the next secret!

- I never finished Chronicles, I just couldn't stand some of the characterisation, and in an RPG that was something really important to me. Also didn't like the blatant Archie rip-offs.

1. What's on the cover never happenend in the issue itself.

2. That issue takes place after Evil Sonic (before he became Scourge) was impersonating Sonic.

I know, I have the issue, that was part of my point. They have that cover which has no meaning on the rest of the comic at all apart from "Hey look, Sonic likes ze' girls!" with that bad pun on the cover and all.

It's one of two non-90's Archie comics I actually got.

Evil Sonic/Scourge vs Sonic Prime in terms of outright whorishness is not exactly the best point. Prime Sonic even gave Bunnie a snog after reasoning with Nanites and saving her from them. He also took Fiona into the woods and played tonsil hockey with her until Tails stumbled across them. He was involved in a love triangle in the "Hearts held Hostage" story in the 110's/120's with Sally and Mina and what about going out with Amy when he saw Sally and Khan getting involved with each other?

What I find extremely funny about the Fiona point was Sonic's excuse for it in the "House of Cards" story when answering Tails as Tails started beating the crap out of him. "Saving" Tails from heartbreak of a girl not interested in him by dating her himself was a pathetic cop-out story-wise that makes Sonic out as being a bigger whore.

- I also have elaborate daydreams every day of having adventures with Sonic, particularly before I sleep when I can spend hours awake doing this...I serialise them and an entire "story arc" can take months o__o

That cover makes me sick. I do not like seeing Sonic portrayed as a man whore. It's funny Sonic's excuse for kissing Fiona was to save Tails from heart break when really having Tails see his own "friend" make out with the girl he likes I think hurt him much more than Fiona ever would have alone. It destroyed all trust Tails could have in his friend and big brother idol and really made Sonic out to be a real ass.

You sure that's not the cover of a porno?

Nope, unless I mixed up my comic-drawers. :P

I know I come across as a big Archie fan, but truth be told, I also can't stand Archie!Sonic. He's a bastard =P In fact, there's really not that many characters in Archie that I like, at least not consistently. My favourite Archie characters aren't even from Mobius Prime. My favourites would be Scourge, Miles and Alicia. I don't like Sonic in the Archie comics, and for the most part I don't like Tails, Sally, or the others much either. I like some of the ideas, and the worlds, and occasionally the art... and every now and then I'll like the characters when they do something awesome. But mostly I'm in it for Scourge and the Suppression Squad and Moebius. >_>

I've found that's actually a pretty common preference in fandom. I guess for some people it's because they want to be able to nurture and heal their favourite character, or because it's psychologically interesting to see characters (especially normally strong and/or upbeat characters) dealing with extreme hardship and being weakened. I definitely have a tendency to put my favourite characters through extreme trials and torture through various means, just to play with how they would respond, and how their friends and enemies would react, too. I also seem to like inflicting psychological pain on them as well as physical ^^; I'm a cruel mistress.

Yep, I've got a fanfic in the works where Silver is born without a tongue, not the main plot focus of the story but an important factor(not giving anyhting away because it will ether be posted here or fanfiction)

I like to read a good amy pairing but some cliches out there that annoy me like softening Sonic/Shadow/whoever and this whole business behind why Sonic suddenly falls in love after years of running away from her with the pathetic excuse of 'doing it to stop Eggman from using you to get to me' hasn't Eggman done that before so it wouldn't matter if they hooked up.

1.I can't beat the Sonic 2 final boss. Every time I play it I try to jump over the claws and die.

2.I'm terrible at special stages. Sonic 1 is the only game I've gotten 100% on.

3.I broke a gamecube controller playing triple trouble in gems collection.

4.I can't beat the Egg viper in SA1.

Whilst I'm not the sort who'll generally find any Sonic character hot (seriously, Sonic porn has never even occurred to me, it's so far off my radar- Sonic is one thing I will absolutely never sexualise)...

...I do actually find Vector kind of attractive sometimes. >.> Not to say I'd even go as far as to look for Vector porn, but still.

I think it's his whole 'RAR RAR BIG MANLY' thing he has going on with his physique/ build. Most Sonic characters are scrawny. D:

Im a bit surprised that there have hardly been any "i dont like the classic Sonic games that much" revelations in this thread. Either the classics truly are universally loved or people who dislike them feel that even in a thread where half the people admit to thinking about Sonic characters when they teach their genitals whose the boss, admiting that you dont like the holy 16-bit grails of Sonicdom is still too stigmatizing. :P

Honestly, I think it's because most people genuinely DO like the classics. I prefer modern, if that counts as a 'shameful secret,' but there's nothing wrong with the classics. Fun stuff.

I also liked '06, to a certain extent. If it wasn't broken, the gameplay would be quite a bit like the Adventure series, and I liked Adventure gameplay.

Oh, and I'm currently in the process of watching the Japanese version of Sonic X for the first time. Don't know what's considered more shameful; that it's Sonic X or that it's my first time watching the Japanese version. :P

Either way, loving the hell out of it.

I didn't put that up there because I gloat about it every time in my signature. (The Classics are placed on way too high of a pedestal where they shouldn't be.) Plus, I've said it many times in the past so putting it in a post here is overkill. Edited by Attitude Adjustment

Might as well join in.

I wish I could make an entire list like most of you, but alas, my memory is a piece of shit. So for now, I'm just going to address that I think Sonic is the cutest male character next to Tails. Even then, things can become borderline moe when:

A.) Sonic is wearing glasses. Guys who wear glasses are cool.

(except without clothes lulz)

B.) Sonic is blushing.

HNNNNNNNNNNNNNG TO THE MAX.

As a side note, this actually applies to most characters, but Sonic looks especially cute with either one. (Not both, that's just too out of character for my liking.)

It should also be noted that I had a crush on Sonic when I was a kid. Not really something I'm that ashamed of, I was a kid for crying out loud! XD;

Aaaaaaand, I tend to like the modern games more then the classics as well. :0 OH SNAP.

Oh god yes! I giggled when Sonic did that in episode 22 in front of two Geisha when they flatter him. 4kids cut that adorable little scene from the dub <_< I loved his little line too "Please stop! You're making me blush!" as if blushing is embarassing to him.
