Background

This article was borrowed from [1].

According to various official materials from Sega, Sonic is described as a character who is "like the wind": a drifter who lives as he wants, and makes life a series of events and adventures. Sonic hates oppression and staunchly defends freedom. Although he is mostly easy-going he has a short temper and is often impatient with slower things. Sonic is a habitual daredevil hedgehog who is honest, loyal to friends, keeps his promises, and dislikes tears. He took the young Tails under his wing like a little brother, but is uninterested in marital proposals from Amy Rose. In times of crisis, he focuses intensely on the challenge as if his personality had undergone an astonishing change.

Sonic is known as the world's fastest hedgehog. Sonic's greatest strength is his running speed, which is faster than the speed of sound. Many of his abilities are variations on the tendency for hedgehogs to roll into tight balls for protection with the addition of spinning his body. Since his introduction in 1991's Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic's primary offensive maneuver is the basic "Spin Attack" (or "Sonic Spin Attack"). Later games in the series expanded on this basic attack and two of these enhancements have become mainstays of his: the Spin Dash which was introduced in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and involves Sonic spinning on the spot before blasting off at full speed, and the Homing Attack, officially introduced in Sonic Adventure, in which Sonic dashes toward a target in mid air. However, Sonic's weakness is that he can't swim, sinking like a rock if plunged to a deep body of water. However, he can overcome his weakness by running on the surface of water.

When seven Chaos Emeralds are collected in most Sonic games, Sonic can initiate a super transformation into Super Sonic, a faster and nearly invulnerable version of himself that can fly. In the 2D games, he enters Super Sonic mode after collecting 50 Rings; in the 3D games where Super Sonic is playable, he starts off in the form with 50 Rings. While transformed, Sonic slowly loses Rings during the time he is in the form and returns to normal when all the Rings are used up; the player can collect more Rings during this time to keep him as Super Sonic. Super Sonic (from Sonic Adventure and all games, both 2D and 3D, that followed) is usually only in the last level and can not be played as outside of it unless through the process of hacking or cheating. He bears a striking (and possibly intentional) resemblance to the Super Saiyans from Dragon Ball Z.

Role In DYOS

As in his various media, Sonic is Eggman's archnemesis. With the mad Doctor away, however, Sonic has no eggs left to scramble. As a result, he has grown bored, and has begun to attempt to pick on Shadow - who is "responsible" for Eggman's disappearance based on what has been seen. While possibly motivated to get back at Shadow for causing his one source of entertainment to disappear, Sonic wasn't counting on Shadow still being able to access his Chaos powers, if only with the help of Chaos Drives.

So far, Sonic has been a minor character, getting into scuffles with Shadow in particular, breaking a desk with his head as a result.
