Sonic the Hedgehog is the mascot of SEGA, and the main protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series.


Not much is known about Sonic's early life. What is known is that he was born on Christmas Island on June 23rd with the ability to run at super speeds, but his love of adventure quickly led him to leave his home. Under unknown circumstances, he met Dr. Ivo Robotnik, and the two became enemies. He would then continue to battle the evil scientist in countless battles.

Powers & Abilities

Alternate Forms

Super Form

Tying in with his Chaos Powers, Sonic is able to harness the power of all seven Chaos Emeralds at once to transform into Super Sonic. In this state, his abilities are enhanced exponentially and he gains a few new ones. However, the form is dependent on how many rings Sonic has on him at the time, and will run out when the rings do. On average, this allows Sonic to sustain the form for at least 50 seconds and at most several days depending on how much energy he uses.

  • Super Sonic Boost: An enhanced version of Sonic’s boost ability. It moves faster and surrounds the user in an aura of chaos energy.
  • Bolt of Lightning: A bashing attack where Super Sonic will move so fast he gains a blue aura and becomes a lightning bolt of sorts.
  • Arrow of Light: Super Sonic bashes into his enemies at extreme speeds.
  • Deflect: An ability that allows Super Sonic to project an energy shield from his hands to shield and redirect projectile attacks and objects.
  • Super Sonic Energy Blast: A series of amped homing attacks followed by an energy blasts released from the hands at an opponent.
  • Positive Energy Aura: Thanks to Sonic absorbing all of the positive energy of the Chaos Emeralds, Sonic has a natural positive aura that allows Super Sonic to pacify evil or angered creatures.
  • Invulnerability: As long as the form is active, Sonic becomes completely impervious to physical harm. Powerful deities have indeed surpassed his durability before, but only when they hold power that shapes the Universe itself.
  • Self Sustenance: Through the power of the Chaos Emeralds, Sonic does not need food, sleep, oxygen, water, or any other resource to sustain himself.
    • Inexhaustible Stamina: Sonic cannot succumb to fatigue while in Super Form, allowing him to use as much energy as he desires without tiring.
  • Flight
  • Enhanced Strength: Sonic's physical power is drastically increased while he is Super Sonic, allowing him to attack with much greater force than normally. 
  • Enhanced Chaos Powers: All of Sonic's Chaos-based abilities are drastically amplified under the effects of Super Sonic.

Hyper Form

If Sonic happens to have all seven Super Emeralds (larger, more powerful versions of the Chaos Emeralds) on him, he can turn into his ultimate form of Hyper Sonic. In this form, Sonic retains the abilities and Super form, but the raw power is amplified even further than Super Sonic. However, it too has a time limit dependent on how many rings Sonic has on him at the time of transformation.

  • Godly Speed: Hyper Sonic is even faster than Super Sonic, allowing him to blitz enemies that may have contended with his previous forms.
  • Invulnerability: Much like Super Sonic, the Hyper state has shown to be completely immune to physical damage.
  • Self Sustenance: As long as he is in the Hyper State, Sonic can survive without oxygen, food, sleep, and water.
    • Inexhaustible Stamina: Sonic can use as much energy as he desires without fatigue in the Hyper state.
  • Flight
  • Godly Strength: Hyper Sonic's strength far surpasses even the likes of Super Sonic.
  • Enhanced Chaos Powers
  • Hyper Flash: Hyper Sonic can generate a blast of chaotic energy from his body that utterly annihilates most foes in his general vicinity. It is often considered Sonic's ultimate attack, and is his most technique.
