|~ Cream the Rabbit, Sonic Rush|
Cream the Rabbit is a supporting character from the Sonic the Hedgehog series. She is Amy Rose's best friend/sidekick. She's the supporting character in the franchise, but is the tritagonist in Sonic Advance 2 and the deuteragonist of Blaze's story and a major character of Sonic's story in Sonic Rush. Cream has a companion, a bowtie-wearing Chao named Cheese. She is a six-year-old anthropomorphic rabbit and the daughter of Vanilla the Rabbit. She is a friend of the Chao, especially to her dear Chao friend, Cheese, whom she takes with her everywhere. Originally living an idyllic life with her family, Cream had a chance encounter with Sonic the Hedgehog and his friends when the evil Dr. Eggman entered her world, and soon began joining them on their adventures. She is able to achieve flight by flapping her large ears.
Cream is very polite, well-mannered and pure, though she can be childish and naive. She is full of curiosity and tries her best in everything she does. Though young, she is not afraid to stand up for herself and will always be there to help out her friends. Just as Tails is the sidekick of Sonic, Cream serves the same purpose for Amy Rose and Blaze the Cat. Cream appears in games, TV shows, and comics.
She is voiced by Sayaka Aoki in the Japanese version of the games, and by Sarah Welfeck (Sonic Battle, Sonic Heroes, and Sonic Advance 3), Rebecca Honig (in the anime), and Michelle Ruff in the English version of the games, the latter who also voices Crimson Viper.

Concept and Creation
The team decided to make a character based on this. Like Sonic and Silver, Cream was originally supposed to be a different kind of animal: she was supposed to be a fox who looked very similar to Tails but in pigtails and the second design she appeared to be a squirrel with many tails. Her name is a pun of the foods "vanilla cream," and "cream cheese" which underlines her relationships with Cheese and Vanilla the Rabbit.
Cream was specifically created by Sonic Team for Sonic Heroes to fill out the role as the Fly Type character for Team Rose. However, the team decided to already introduce Cream in Sonic Advance 2 to make her more familiar to players and make Sonic Advance 2 feel fresher in comparison to Sonic Advance.
According to Sega, Cream was designed as a playable character for beginner players. As her offensive maneuver, Cream was given the Chao Attack since it would damage her image as a sweet girl if she would attack enemies herself.
Cream is a small, anthropomorphic, lop-eared rabbit with cream fur and brown eyes. She has princeton orange markings around her eyes, on her head and at the ends of her ears. She wears a simple vermilion dress with a white collar and blue cravat, and orange and yellow shoes. Her ears are usually swiveled back and flop behind her head.

Mario & Sonic
In Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Cream appears as a non-playable character in both the Wii and Nintendo 3DS version of the game.
In the Wii version of the game, Cream serves as a common referee, alongside Toad, Espio, and Charmy. She, along with Toad and Cheese, also host the London Party Mode, in which she gives out information to the players about various events, such as characters appearing on the map, scores and upcoming Events. As hosts, she and Toad also both judge the players and often give them their daily duties for that mode in order to achieve stickers and points. Cream and Toad also give out the final scores of the events to the players as well. She also appears on the streets in London Party Mode as a character that can be spoken to in order to play different minigames and earn stickers. She is also seen making cameos in various events. Cream will also occasionally send the player different pieces of mail. A Mii costume based on Cream can also be unlocked in the game by placing first ten times in the London Party Bonus Games.
In the story mode in the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, Cream makes an appearance too. After Dr. Eggman and Bowser unleashed the full power of the Phantasmal Fog, Cream and Cheese got lost in the stadium. There, clones of Sonic, Tails, Mario, and Luigi tried to attack them. However, the real heroes saved them and the clones ran away. Cream was then surprised to see Omega among them. However, after Toad noted that they had no leads on the cause of the fog, Omega, having recovered some more of his memory, suggested with some aid from Cream that they should investigate Stonehenge. After the Phantasmal Fog was sealed away, Cream and Cheese appeared at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.
In the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, a badge of Cream can also be obtained from the badge machine.
Although she was unnamed at this point, Cream is seen for the first time as a cameo in Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut for the Gamecube, PC, and in the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions of Sonic Adventure (If downloaded). After playing the Casinopolis level Station Square as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, E-102 Gamma, and after completing Twinkle Park as Big the Cat, and many other characters' story, Cream can be seen flying through the sky, apparently dropping the ice key that appears at that point in the game. This isn't her only cameo in the game, but it's her best-known one. Another common one is when arriving in Station Square from Mystic Ruins (as any character), she can be seen flying over the beach, and then disappearing (only known in the PlayStation 3 version currently). Cream makes an appearance in Sonic Riders and its sequel as an unlockable Flight-type character, but she does not play a role in the story mode of both games. In this game she, like Amy, Blaze and Rouge, wears a different outfit. Her default Extreme Gear is the Smile. She can be unlocked by completing the Heroes storyline in both games. Cream appears in Sonic and the Secret Rings as a playable character in the Party Mode. She's unlockable if you collect 42 Fire Souls from the Adventure Mode.
Pre-Super Genesis Wave
Post-Super Genesis Wave
Cream is polite and well-mannered (due to the discipline from her mother,) she always addresses her friends (particularly Sonic) with honorifics, and dislike any form of violence. She also has the ability to change others (examples include: Emerl, Chaos Gamma, and Blaze,) bringing the good out of them. She is usually seen with her chao companion and playmate Cheese, the two are almost always seen together. Because of her age and upbringing though, she is a little naïve and simple-minded at times. She has a sisterly relationship with Amy Rose, she respects and looks up to Sonic as a hero, Cream also respects Tails' genius and Knuckles' strength and bravery. Cream has come a long way as seen in Sonic Generations where she tried to be brave like Sonic, when rescued from the Time Eater. She will stand up for what's right depite her low combat prowess (though she has learned some techniques from Sonic and friends.) Her personality is possibly a reference to rabbits being creatures of peace.

Pre-Super Genesis Wave
Cream and her mother lived in a mansion on their plantation in the Southern Baronies, which was also home to a Chao Garden where she became good friends with the Chao, and named one Cheese. Cheese became Cream's constant companion, and Cream gifted him with a red bowtie. The Rabbit family took it upon themselves to watch over the gentle creatures and help them grow up in peace and safety. Eventually, however, Snively Robotnik tracked an energy source from the Chao Garden at their home and came to claim it for the Eggman Empire. As Cream tried to herd the Chao into the house's cellar, Amy Rose arrived and started knocking Snively's mech around. Wanting to help save the Chao, Cream then flew her over top the mech's cockpit despite Vanilla's concerns for her safety, whereupon Amy caused it to crash onto Cream's house. Cream became upset afterwards because the Chao had no place to live while she and Vanilla had to move to New Mobotropolis, and wanted to stay until Amy realized some of the Chao had lived in Knothole before its destruction. To the delight of Cream, Amy had Nicole set up the Lake of Rings in New Mobotropolis as a new Chao Garden, and Cream was happy to relocate to the city with her old friends and her newest one.
Caught by Dr. Eggman, Cream and Cheese were imprisoned in Dr. Eggman's fortress as Eggman carried out his plot to harness the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds. Sonic soon came to rescue their lives, during which a massive Chaos Control was unleashed, tossing Cream and her friends to Earth. Separated from the others, Cream and Cheese were found on a billboard by firemen, and taken to Area 99 by the local humans to be studied by the military. Luckily, they were rescued by Sonic and Tails, and Cream took up residence in the Thorndyke Mansion where Sonic's news friends, Christopher Thorndyke and Chuck Thorndyke lived.
Powers and abilities
Cream's trademark skill is her ability to achieve flight by flapping her two large ears as wings, allowing her to move freely through midair. Although she cannot fly as high, fast or long as Rouge or Tails, she can fly a greater horizontal distance. Regardless, she can still fly fast enough to keep up with Sonic as seen in Sonic Generations. Cream can also carry weights much greater than that of her own while flying, without hindering her own flying speed, as seen in Sonic Heroes, hinting a great deal of strength behind her flying. Like other characters in the series, Cream can run at super speeds and is said to be nearly as fast as Sonic. When running, she uses a unique hopping running style that makes it difficult for her opponents to track her. While not having highly professional skills in the field, Cream is also very acrobatic and agile, being able to perform simple, yet impressive movements and tricks while airborne, and grind on rails with ease.
Cream has very little combat experience. She severely lacks in battle prowess and often has to rely on her friends' help in combat. However, she still possesses some fighting skills, having been taught them to better help her friends. If motivated or pushed though, Cream can fight exceptionally better, being able to defeat some of Eggman's stronger creations, such as the doctor's combat mechs and the weaponized Chaos Gamma.
In battle, Cream fights by working in collaboration with Cheese, commanding the Chao to attack the opponent for her in various ways, such as ramming directly into the enemy, dealing direct and crippling blows, blocking attacks, or even stir up tornadoes to blow opponents away, while she keeps a safe distance from the opponent.
When not fighting opponents herself, Cream focuses on providing support to her allies, such as in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood where her POW moves are all cheers that can empower and encourage her allies.
Techniques and Moves
Cream's signature technique and primary offensive maneuver is the Chao Attack, where she commands Cheese to charge into her target. This allows her to attack from long distance almost instantly, a contrast to other characters who lacks long-range attacks. Over time, Cream has developed several variants of this technique such as the Chao Rolling Attack and Step Attack where Cream has Cheese spinning around her to shield her from damage, the Chao Ball Attack where Cream has Cheese spin into a target, and the Chao Spinning Attack where Cream has Cheese somersault into an enemy for wider attack range. Cream is able to perform the Spin Attack where she curls tightly into a concussive ball while in locomotion to damage, mow down, or burrow through obstacles and foes, along with the various forms derived from it. Using the Spin Jump, Cream can leap into the air and curl into a spinning ball to deal damage to anything she lands on, the Spin Dash lets her shoot herself forward as an acceleration roll at high speeds to break barriers or mow down enemies, and the Homing Attack allows Cream to jump and home in on an enemy to attack.
Cream has good homemaking skills, such as cooking and decorating, most likely because of her mother's teachings. As an offspring of her good-hearted nature, Cream is able to heal herself using only the pureness of her heart.
In Sonic Free Riders, Cream has demonstrated very high Extreme Gear rider skills, being able to hold her own against some of the best Extreme Gear riders the world has to offer during the World Grand Prix. While riding on an Extreme Gear, Cream can pulls off highly advanced tricks and techniques with her Extreme Gear while in midair, moving at incredible speeds, She is also able to ride her Extreme Gear through mid-air with great precisions and control.
By harnessing different variants of Hyper-go-on from Wisps, Cream can use specific Color Powers to transform into a certain form, such as a drill, a laser or even a planet, each one possessing its own unique abilities. So far, Cream has been able to transform into the Cyan Laser, Yellow Drill and Indigo Asteroid. However, these transformations require a steady supply of Hyper-go-on to be maintained.
She has homemaking skills (such as cooking, decorating etc.)
Since Sonic Heroes, Cream and Amy share a sister-like relationship, comparable to Sonic and Tails' brother-like friendship. This fact is strengthened by Sonic Advance 3, as when they are paired together, they are given the title "Team Jubilee" and serve as a female counterpart to Sonic and Tails' "Unbreakable Bond." The two are portrayed as best friends and also seem to frequent together almost completely throughout Sonic Battle, except when Emerl drags one of them away. Amy is also seen searching for Cream during the level Cryptic Castle in Shadow the Hedgehog, which further suggests how much she care for her.
In Sonic Rush, it is implied that Amy occasionally gets angry with Cream, angry enough to chase her with her hammer as Cream shouted "Not again!" after she said that Amy was "shortsighted" in the regard of her love of Sonic when Cream introduced Blaze to Amy.
The two team up twice in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood for the moves Spin Cycle, a move in which Cream lifts Amy up and sends her spinning into one enemy, as well damaging adjacent ones. Team Rose band together to perform Flower Power, their most potent attack in this game which involves Amy bouncing off Big with a boost from Cream and landing on a foe hammer-first
Sonic the Hedgehog is Cream's close friend, who is basically like an older brother to her.
Cream and Tails are really good and close friends, and have a lot in common with each other; both are shy, naïve, polite, intelligent, gullible, educated, friendly, innocent, gentle, sweet and big-hearted. Also both Cream and Tails are very young; 6 years-old and 8 years-old respectively. The two of them spends a lot of time together and supports each other ideas very well. Many fans believe that they might have a romantic interest in each other, at least in the games, and though this has not been confirmed by the series development team, this is very likely
In Sonic Free Riders, Tails said that Cream's Extream Gear was really good in the race to which Cream replied "Well, sure! That means a lot coming from you, Mr. Tails!". In Sonic Rush, Tails shows that he cares about Cream and is very protective of her, telling her to stay away from Blaze as she was a suspect. Cream also compliments Tails to Blaze, telling that her he is a "really nice boy", which means that Cream likes Tails.
There have also had instances of their possible romantic interest on each other in the Mario & Sonic series. In the Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, after the Phantasmal Fog clones try to attack Cream, Tails assures her she'll be safe while Mario, Sonic and Luigi hold them back. He the lashes out at the clones for trying to attack her. In Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, they are partners for Beach Volleyball on day 2 of Mario's Story. Cream states that they have the bestest teamwork.
Overall, Cream and Tails are really good friends, and many fans believe they to have a romantic interest on each other at least in the games. Though this has not been officially confirmed by the development team, this is very likely, so they possible have a crush on each other, but does not admit as both of them are too shy. Additionally, in some games, Cream is Amy's equivalent of Tails to Sonic, often helping Amy out or trying to get her out of bad situations like Amy's compulsion to push herself too far especially when aroused to anger.
Cream and Knuckles are good friends, although they sometimes interact with each other and sometimes they don't.
- McDonalds commercial are the only time where Cream appears without Cheese.
- Cream is the one of the most favorable characters to use in the Sonic Advance 2 & 3 boss fights, due to her long-range attacks (especially the latter game, where her partner skill allows cheese to transform into a Chao version of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy, which also grants them the ability to attack like Cream as well.)
- She is one the the few characters to have a parent shown.
- Cream is the youngest female character, as well as the overall youngest character of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, at age 6.
