~ Sonic in Super Smash Bros. Brawl; his most famous quote.
Gotta go Fast!
~ Sonic's catchphrase.
What you see is what you get! Just a guy that loves adventure! I'm Sonic the Hedgehog!
~ Sonic in Sonic Adventure 2.
Sonic the Hedgehog is the titular main protagonist of the SEGA franchise that has the same name. He is also SEGA's mascot. Sonic's rival in the gaming industry used to be Mario, but now they are seen as friendly competitors ever since Sega became third party and started releasing Sonic games for Nintendo systems.
Sonic is a 15-year-old hedgehog known for his fast speed (hence his name), and his laid-back and cocky attitude towards serious situations. His arch-nemesis is Dr. Eggman, an evil scientist who plans to conquer the world. However, much like Mario and Bowser, Sonic always foils his various schemes, no matter how hopeless or dire the situation may be. Sonic's best friend is Miles "Tails" Prower, who at times acts like a little brother to Sonic and aids him in any way he can. Knuckles the Echidna is another close friend, but was also his first rival, though their rivalry is now much friendlier. Another one of his friends is Amy Rose, who harbours an one-sided crush on him and desires the marry him.
Sonic has also had many voice actors throughout his history. In Japan, Sonic has been voiced by Jun'ichi Kanemaru since 1998. In his first speaking role in Sonic's Schoolhouse, he was voiced by Meg Inglima. In the cartoons, he was voiced by Jaleel White, although in Sonic Underground, his singing voice was provided by Samuel Vincent. From 1999 till 2004, he was voiced by Ryan Drummond. He was later replaced by Jason Griffith, who had previously voiced the character in the English dub of Sonic X and who also voiced Tom on Chaotic. He kept the role until 2010 when he was replaced by Roger Craig Smith, who has voiced Sonic since then; he also voices Ezio Auditore da Firenze from the Assassin's Creed series and Chris Redfield in the Resident Evil and Marvel vs. Capcom series since Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. In the 2020 live action movie, he is voiced by Ben Schwartz, who also voices Skidmark in Turbo, Dewey Duck in Ducktales, Randy Cunningham in 9th Grade Ninja and Leonardo in 2018 reboot of Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Sonic is a blue anthropomorphic hedgehog with attitude and plenty of personality who lives up to his name by being able to run at superhuman speeds. One day on South Island, he noticed all of his animal buddies began disappearing and the culprit was none other than Dr. Eggman.
After foiling the doc's plans, Sonic would then make it his business to do in whatever evil plan the doctor cooked up, establishing their long rivalry. Over time, Sonic has faced bigger and larger threats alike while making a whole slew of allies along the way.
Sonic is described as like the wind; unpredictable, and always moving from place to place and never settling down for long. Laid-back, carefree, and armed with a wit as sharp as his quills with an ego to match. He also has a compassionate side and deep down, a heart of gold that always wishes the best for others.
"Long time, no see!"

"It's actually pronounced Wi-Fi, Ralph. (Wreck-It Ralph: Yeah, that's what I said.) And Wi-Fi is the Internet, which is an online community where human beings go to shop, play games and socialize. (Vanellope von Schweetz: Ooh, fun!)" - Sonic about the Internet in Ralph Breaks the Internet.
"I am the man!" - In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Tokyo 2020

"You're too good of a pilot to just crash like that." - to Tails
"Look! It's a giant talking egg!"
"Knuckles, don't tell me Eggman tricked you again?" - to Knuckles that Eggman and Chaos are trying to steal the Emeralds.
"Oh SHOOT! I've lost Amy! I bet that robot hauled butt after her! I better catch her before it does!" - Sonic getting lost in Twinkle Park.
"Darn! This makes it harder for us to get to the bridge!" - after the Egg Carrier changed battle formation.
"Uh... Okay... Whatever you say... You must have your reasons." - agreeing to leave E-102 Gamma alone for Amy because he helped her.
"If he's your friend, I'll help you. Just leave it to me!" - Sonic to Big before saving Froggy from Chaos 6.
"You won't get away with this you madman!" - Sonic to Eggman as he found six Chaos Emeralds.
"AARRGGHH!! I HATE EGGMAN!!!" - Sonic's breakdown
"What was that all about? I don't think I'm dreaming here." - after finding himself back to where he was.
"Guess Eggman's learned his lesson, yup. And maybe I'll take another vacation somewhere." - in the beginning of the Super Sonic story.
"Hey, no way! Who blew it this time?!" - Sonic after Angel Island fell again.
"If I wasn't just dreaming, that monster is a real menace!" - after Perfect Chaos destroyed the majority of Station Square.
"Oh, it's you! the one who sealed Chaos in the Master Emerald! Tikal!" - Sonic discovering what caused him to find himself in 3,000 years ago.
"How can that help? It won't change how he feels inside, will it? His heart will still remain in turmoil and his anger just won't vanish! He'll just be trapped, forever!" - claiming that sealing Chaos in the Master Emerald will not change anything.

"Talk about low budget flight, no food or movies? I'm outta here! I like running better." - escaping from the Guardian Units of Nations.
"This game of tag is boring. I'm outta here!" - befor the Ft-6 Big Foot Appeared.

"Wow! He's FAST! Hey, it's not his speed he must be using the chaos emerald to warp." - about Chaos Control.
"The reason I'm in here is because of that fake Hedgehog." - explaining to Amy about what happened before he's arrested again.
"Whew. so far, so good. Hey, that's... (Shadow: That blue hedgehog again of all places..) I've found you, faker! (Shadow: Faker? I think you're the fake hedgehog around here. You're comparing yourself to me? HA! You're not even good enough to be my fake!) I'll make you eat those words!" - confronting Shadow in the first clash.
"You can't get away this time! There's only one real Sonic!" - before the first duel between Sonic and Shadow begins.
"Do you know who I am?" - battling Shadow.
"BLOWS UP...?!?! (...) I've gotta get outta here and find Amy and Tails. RIGHT AWAY!" - after hearing from Eggman on radio.
"Eggman! Oh... that creep NEVER gives up!" - witnessing the Space Colony destroy half of the Moon.
"Tails, I'll take care of the police, while you try to find a way outta here. Find Eggman." - Sonic's command to Tails.
"So this is the space colony where Eggman is hiding." - Sonic upon his sights on their way to the Space Colony ARK.
"Don't sweat it, Knuckles. The only thing in the cargo bay are those master emerald pieces, right? (Knuckles: What do you mean don't sweat it? Land the shuttle and let me out!) Knock it off, Knuckles! We're gonna crash this thing if ya keep that up!" - Sonic to Knuckles
"I didn't get that! What's happened to Amy? Tails?" - Sonic losing contact with Tails.
"You've turned into a big time villain, Doctor!" - to Eggman
"I'm counting on you, Tails. And Amy... Take care of yourself." - before being launched in a capsule.
"Whoa, I wasn't sure if I could pull that one off. Somehow I managed to use the Chaos Control. (Knuckles: Chaos Control? Are you okay?) I'm worried about Tails and Amy. I hate to ask, but, could you help them? This is our last chance. I got it...! Before the cannon fires, I'LL SLAM DUNK IT IN THERE!!!" - meeting Knuckles on the ARK.
"You know, what can I say? I die hard. (reveals the fake chaos emerald) You actually saved me you know." - to Shadow on the Space Colony.
"Alright, Shadow! Time for me to finish this!" - Sonic's final clash with Shadow.
"Game over, Shadow!" - after successfully defeating Shadow.
"What do you mean? (Eggman: You're pretty persistent for a hedgehog aren't you? You're still alive, huh?) Heh, just letting Knuckles pilot the shuttle on the way over here, was more dangerous than you could ever be." - to Eggman as the Space Colony was on a collision course to Earth.
"Oh, It's noting. Come on, let's go home! To the planet as cool and blue as me! (...) Sayonara... Shadow... the Hedgehog." - Sonic in the end of Sonic Adventure 2.
"Hmm, sounds like an invitation to party." - Sonic reading a message from yesterday morning.
"Heh, think I missed this? Time to crack that Eggman wide open! Yeah, let's party!" - in the beginning of Team Sonic's story.
"Let's blast thru with Sonic speed!"
"Hmm, didn't you know? WE have a date with Eggman, too!" - to Team Dark that both teams have a date with Eggman.

"Alright, Eggman! Let's get this party started." - invading the Eggman Fleet.
"Later, guys! I'm outta here!" - having fun with Amy
"So that's Metal Sonic?!" - realizing Metal Sonic overthrew Eggman

"Shadow, why are you siding with those Black Creatures?!" - Sonic to Shadow in betrayal.

"I'll show you what true speed really is!"
"Even without wings, I can still fly! Right?" - after winning the final race with the Babylon Rogues.

"Hmm. So, this guy needs someone to put him in his place, does he? I suppose I can help out with that. It might even be fun. But... this is all just something out of a storybook, right? How am I supposed to do anything about that?" - agreeing to save another world.
"Now THIS is first class! HERE WE GO...!" - before entering the World of the Arabian Nights.
"Come on, Tails! I know it's you!" somehow mistaking Ali Baba with Tails.
"WHOA! Something's after us!" - Sonic noticing Angry Triceratops chasing him.
"Wisdom? Knuckles? Ah, never mind. Come on, let's find that key." - before setting off to save Sinbad.
"And enough of that 'rat' stuff! Seriously! I'm a hedgehog! HEDGE-HOG!" - after Erazor Djinn calls him a rat, Sonic and the Secret Rings.

"Wait, we're going up against them? Seriously?!" - thinking Team Sonic's up against Team Rose again, Sonic Free Riders
Sonic Colors/Sonic Colors: Ultimate
"I can't believe somebody was dumb enough to leave the keys in this thing. It's like Eggman's begging us to sneak in and trash the place." - Sonic in the space elevator.
"He loves to hear his own lips flap, but I gotta hand it to the Eggster. This place is epic. Everyone and their brother is gonna wanna come here. (Tails: No doubt, but now, I'm not sure why we're here. This place looks totally harmless.) Because Eggman, plus Secretly built amusement park equals evil plot for us to foil. lucky for us, he's not very good at keeping things hidden." - Sonic to Tails in the beginning of Sonic Colors.
"I did a little shopping, grabbed a bite to eat, and trashed a giant killer robot." Sonic's reply to tails where he went off to.

"If I was an alien in need of saving, where would I be?" - wondering if he was a Wisp.
"Wow! Sometimes I even impress myself! For a second there, I wasn't sure if I was gonna pull it off. Oh, who am I kidding! We both knew how this would end." - after destroying the Refreshinator.
"What IS this place?" - exploring new places.
"I've got a bad feeling about this." - reference from Star Wars in Sonic Colors
"Sorry, couldn't help myself. We're outta here!" - before escaping from an exploding Eggman's incredible Interstellar Amusement park.
"Look I know you're trying to be clever with this whole amusement park pun thing, but it's just coming off lame. Say you're going to destroy us and stop embarrassing yourself." - telling Eggman to give it a rest with his lame speeches.
"A hedgehog's gotta do what a Hedgehog's gotta do." - to Tails in the end of Sonic Colors.
"Well, I can jog around the planet again if you want." - to Tails after knowing that about his surprise Birthday party, Sonic Generations (Nintendo 3DS).
"Where am I?" - finding himself in another place.
"No stranger than rescuing genies in magic books or saving aliens in an Interstellar Amusement Park. I'm more concerned about finding our Friends." - to Tails finding themselves in White space.
"You're right, Tails. This place is giving me déjà vu all over again!" - Sonic to Tails on the Chemical plant.

"Aw, man! I should've listened to you, Tails." - after he made a mistake for the Deadly Six to strike back on Eggman.
"Oh no, what I meant to say is I'm so sorry that you have nothing more important to do in life?" - meeting Zeena the second time in Frozen Factory.
"I'm supposed to be the fastest, but I was too slow to save my buddy." - blaming himself for being too reckless after causing Tails to be captured by the Deadly Six.
"You know, after a daylight today, I can enjoy a nap on some fresh green grass." - in the end of Sonic Lost World
"Oh, hey. Sounds like the party started. Wanna let me go and join in? No? Of course not. You hate fun." - meeting a Replica Zavok on the Death Egg while in prison, Sonic Forces.
"Great! See, Infinite, now we're getting to know each other! So, what's your favorite color? Do you like long, romantic walks on the beach? What's the source of your power? You can skip the first two questions if you'd like." - His second encounter with Infinite.
"Haven't you seen a Hedgehog before? C'mon, I'll show you my spines!" - after Infinite called Sonic a sewer rat.
"It's been generations since I've seen you. You okay?" - Sonic's reunion with Classic Sonic.
"Hey, don't be scared. This is your moment to shine! Keep going. Don't let your fear own you!" - cheering the Avatar up to battle Infinite in Metropolis.

"We almost got him."
"Did you really think you had a chance?"
"No way that's getting through!"

"Here we come! You all ready?"
"Hmph! You actually thought you could defeat me by transforming into a monster?!" - to Metal Overlord
"It's not over yet! Let's show him what we're made of!"
"Too bad it's all over... FOR YOU!!!
"Now I'll show you! HRRRRGGGGHHHH!!"
"For the fate of the world... (Burning Blaze: And for the sake of my people...) LET'S GO!!!
"Thank you, Elise..."
"All right, it's my turn! Let's have some fun, Solaris!"
"The Present Day... The here and now that you've stolen... Time to take it back!"
"Let's see how long you can keep up that big attitude!"
"Man, today's not my day."
"That was incredible!"
"Now I'm serious!"
"Well, this is new. Showing remorse, Eggman? If you played nice, I wouldn't have to break all your toys."
"All right, Chip! Time for the big finish!"
"Rrgh! I've gotta take out this shield."
"H-Hey! What're you doing, Chip?! (...) Chip, I... You were... Wow!"
"CHIP! Be right there!"
"This one's all mine!"
"I've got this one covered!"
"No one can keep up with me!"
"SUPER SONIC STYLE! HRRRRRGGGGHH!!!"
"We've got to... stop him! Shahra... Please! Lend me your... POWER!" - Darkspine Sonic before the final battle.
"HA! How's this for an introduction then?" - Darkspine Sonic deflecting Alf Layla wa-Layla's Spirit Blast
"It looks like It's working. I just have to keep it up."
"There's no time left. I have to finish him off!"
"If I hold the button in, I can charge up a ton of power."
"If I stand my ground I can charge up more of my power, THEN I'll show him."
"I've just gotta hit him. Then, eventually I can hurt him."
"Maybe Time Break and Speed Break might work."
"I have to stay clear of that whirlpool."
"I can probably deflect those big orbs of light somehow."
"Normal attacks don't seem to have any effect. He must have some weak point."
"I think I need hit him in that thing that looks like a heart."
"If I watch for the beam of light when he's attacking, I can probably dodge it."
"Your tale is finished, Erazor! Next time, try writing a better story!" - Darkspine Sonic after defeating Alf Layla wa-Layla.
"You're really... gone and done it this time, Eggman."
"Mister... Monster guy?! [looks at himself] Looks like things have gotten pretty ugly."
"Uh-oh! Did I fall on him?"
"Huh, not so hot."
"Aww, can I start over?"
"Hmm, not so bad!"
"Wow, I rule!"
"Oh yeah, That's right baby!"
"How do you like that, huh?!"
"I'm fine... I just need to be careful who sees me like this."
"Weird... But it could be useful."
"Hey, Tails! (...) What're you doing out here?"
"I need to find Eggman and make him fix this and FAST!"
"Leave it to you, Tails, let's get moving!"
"Let's get outta here before Eggnan's welcome comity shows up." - rescuing Professor Pickle
"I know little girls who are better with a hammer than you! Well, one, anyway." to the Dark Guardian
"I bet it's thanks to you. (...) Even at night when I'm like this. I'm still myself. Not like all the other people we've seen. You must've been protecting me this whole time."
"Do I need a reason to want to help out a friend?"
"Strike three, monster! that's enough out of you!"
"I see. I'll bet your job is to guard the Chaos Emerald Temple. You must've gone berserk when the Emeralds lost their power."
"Sorry, I'm in a rush here!"
"G-Gees, Eggman! Simmer down!"
"Heh! Let's do this!" - Excalibur Sonic about to battle Merlina, as the Dark Queen.
"Argh! Dodging to the right or left's the only way." - Sonic attempts to dodge Dark Queen's attack.
"Nah, it's not gonna end. My stories only end when I stop running!" - Sonic response when Merlina asks him, if he wants to see the Arthurian realm come to an end.
"Good, 'cause I don't ever want to know such one-sided sadness." - Sonic's response to Merlina when she proclaims her sadness about the kingdom's future.
"Heh heh! My trusty sword's gonna teach you a lesson." - Sonic backing up one of Excalibur's quotes.
"Yeah, it was a shocker for me too!" - Sonic explaining his reaction to Caliburn's transformation.
"I already told you, I don't mind playing the bad guy every once in a while." - Sonic reminds Merlina of his earlier statement in the game.
"What I can't understand is how you can call such a boring sounding place 'magnificent'." - Sonic telling Merlina his thoughts about her ideal kingdom.
"It's over, now." - Sonic's final blow on the Dark Queen
OH NO! DON'T TOUCH THAT LEVER! WHOA...!!!

One of the few things that can actually scare Sonic is an enraged Amy chasing him with her Piko Piko Hammer.
Despite water being his biggest weakness in the vast majority of continuity's, he was perfectly able to swim in The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.
Sonic Colors is the only canon game in which Sonic can swim. Although it is in the form of infinite jumps when underwater.
There is a genome named "Sonic hedgehog".
Every time Sonic appears in a band, he is either playing the guitar, or a Disc Jockey.
At one point in Sonic Unleashed, Eggman called Sonic a "hedge-pig". This may be a reference to the fact that "pig" can be synonymous with "hog" and "hedgepig" means "hedgehog" in Shakespearean language.
In 1993, Sonic was the first video game character to be seen in the Thanksgiving Day Parade.
In 2011, a second balloon based off of Sonic's modern design appeared in the Thanksgiving Day Parade to celebrate Sonic's 20th anniversary.
His favorite food is chili dogs.
Sonic and his best friend Tails makes an appearance in an OK KO: Let's Be Heroes! episode titled "Let's Meet Sonic".
Sonic makes his appearance in Ready Player One. He can also be briefly seen waiting in line for access to a portal in the OASIS. Sonic is also being seen during the final battle in the OASIS.
He was born on Christmas Island.
Sonic made an appearance in the YouTube series, Cartoon Beatbox Battles, when he went against his greatest rival, Mario, in the 8th episode and won. He also went against his friendly rival, the Black Panther (who previously won against Batman), in the 12th episode, but lost.
Sonic's favorite sport is baseball.
Similar to Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse, Sonic and Mario are best known for their friendly-rivalry and friendship, and they always get along with each other.
To celebrate Sonic's 30th birthday, he officially became a virtual YouTuber, voiced by his official Japanese voice actor Jun'ichi Kanemaru.
