Shadow, what do you think it's like on earth?
~ Maria wondering about the earth with Shadow.
Shadow I beg of you, please do it for me... for a better future! For all of the people who live on that planet... give them a chance to be happy... let them live for their dreams. Shadow, I know you can do it. That's the reason you were brought into this world. Sayonara, Shadow the Hedgehog.
~ Maria's final words to Shadow.

Maria Robotnik is the posthumous overarching protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, appearing as the posthumous overarching protagonist of the 2001 video game Sonic Adventure 2 and the Shadow Saga of Sonic X.

She was the granddaughter of Professor Gerald Robotnik, the cousin of Dr. Eggman, and was Shadow the Hedgehog's closest companion aboard the Space Colony ARK until her death. Maria was gunned down by a G.U.N. soldier while she was helping Shadow escape capture. Her final wish was for Shadow to protect humanity.


While frail in appearance, Maria was strong in spirit. Eternally cheerful, optimistic, and positive despite her condition, Maria could see the good in almost anyone or anything. She was likewise a very kind, caring and thoughtful soul who always put others before herself, supported her friends, and held an unconditional love for the people of the world, even showing compassion towards her enemies when they were distressed. Because she never got down to earth, Maria was very interested in the planet and wished to see it. She was as well very encouraging as she could make others accept themselves and calm others down when in stressful situations, including Shadow.

Always gentle and thinking about others before herself, Maria was one who found it easier than most to forgive and forget, not to mention trust. Even after GUN violently raided the ARK and shot her down, Maria did not hold any ill will against the people on earth and only wished for them to live happy lives. She was also utterly selfless as she sacrificed her life for Shadow's sake, having faith he would carry on her dreams for her.

Despite her youth and frailness, Maria was brave, determined, and had a strong sense of righteousness. When the Artificial Chaos were on a rampage, Maria wanted to stop them to save the innocent, and during the GUN's raid on the ARK she refused to leave the injured researchers behind. Even on her deathbed, Maria remained undeterred and only wished for Shadow to fulfill his purpose.


Maria was a terminally-ill patient on the Space Colony ARK who had contracted the disease NIDS (Neuro-Immuno Deficiency Syndrome) which seems to be related to the disease AIDS.

Her grandfather, Professor Gerald Robotnik created Shadow as a means to study immortality and to use the fruits of the project to attempt to cure Maria.

After Shadow's creation, he became close friends with Maria. Sadly, Maria was killed by delusional soldiers after releasing Shadow from a cryogenic tube in the Japanese version. However, in the English dub, they say she was taken away.

She was dead for 50 years and she sometime reappears in Shadow's mind.

Shadow... I beg of you... please, Do it for me... for all the people... on that planet... Sayonara, Shadow the Hedgehog.
~ Maria's first line of dialogue after she sacrificed her life in Sonic Adventure 2
Isn't this place huge? Even I still get lost in here sometimes.
~ Maria commenting the Space Colony ARK's scale in the The Doom and Lost Impact.
When the research experiments split apart, don't you think they look kinda cute?
~ Maria commenting the Artificial Chaos in Lost Impact.
The Heal Unit was grandfather's greatest invention.
~ Maria telling about the Heal Unit in The Doom.
Sorry I'm late.
~ Maria when switching to Hero mission.
Please, Shadow, I need your help! My Grandfather's experiments... Something's gone horribly wrong. (Shadow: What is it?) The research lab... it's going to be destroyed. Something must be done! Please, Shadow, I beg you! Help grandfather and those onboard the ARK. PLEASE!
~ Maria wanting to stop the Artificial Chaos and pleading for Shadow's help in Lost Impact.
You used to have so much fun here, remember?
~ Maria to Shadow about their time on the ARK
Please, Shadow... I need your help! Everyone's fate depends on... YOU!
~ Maria's last words to Shadow in Shadow the Hedgehog.
Shadow... I beg you...! (Super Shadow: Maria?) Give them a chance to be happy!
~ Super Shadow recalling Maria's words, Sonic Adventure 2.
Please... help me, Shadow.
~ Shadow recalling Maria's words, Shadow the Hedgehog
Shadow, how is your training going? I'll be cheering you on! Here, you have to rescue all of the wounded researchers. Good luck.
~ Maria during the training in The Doom
Shadow, I believe in you...
~ Maria during the training in The Last Way.
Bring hope to humanity.
~ Maria's last words.
Those people need you, Shadow!
~ Maria in Sonic X


  • Christopher Thorndyke and Molly both remind Shadow of Maria, because of their similar selfless natures and the kind, loving look in their eyes.
    • Amy Rose also reminds Shadow of Maria, because Shadow has to help people.
  • Speculated date of death is 02/07/1953. Reason for said speculation is the countdown timer in the Space Colony Ark on the Sonic X episode "Robotnik's Revenge" which takes place 50 years after Maria's death.
  • She was the first and only weakness of Shadow the Hedgehog. Whenever someone mentioned her name or Shadow having a flashback of her.
  • According to Sonic X, Maria is twelve years old, just like Amy Rose.
  • She was Shadow's first friend before she dies.
