So when the Sun goes down, I turn into THIS!

Sonic the Werehog is a werewolf-like form of Sonic the Hedgehog and a protagonist who appeared in the videogame Sonic Unleashed. He was actually Sonic who, after accidentally trapped by Dr. Eggman and turned into a Werehog, Sonic must find the 7 Chaos Emeralds to restore Mobius and turned back into his normal form, he must stop Dark Gaia from destroying Mobius and he is helped by Chip.

Sonic who was Super Sonic is trapped by Dr. Eggman who accidentally turned him into a Werehog, this results makes the Chaos Emeralds de-powered in the process, Sonic must find a way to restore the Chaos Emeralds back to power with the help from Chip, as well his friends and his loved ones, Sonic manages to restore the Chaos Emeralds one-by-one in time to seal Dark Gaia for good.

As Sonic was turned back to his normal self, Dark Gaia becomes Perfect Gaia, Sonic turns into Super Sonic in time to kill Perfect Gaia and seals him for good.

Sonic later wakes up in the morning and finds up that Dark Gaia was sealed forever and has never returned from the dead again.


Sonic personality almost remains the same. He does have a noticeable short-temper, and tends to get annoyed by Chip's antics. He displays aggression in battle against enemies, and bosses.

Because of its appearance, Sonic makes sure to avoid being spotted in his Werehog form (however in-game, the citizens don't act afraid when Sonic speaks to any of them). When Amy didn't recognize him in his Werehog form, he becomes sad and walked away.

Unlike everyone else under Dark Gaia's corrupting influence, Sonic is able to resist, due to his indomitable will.

Powers and Abilities

Unlike Sonic's regular form, the Werehog form doesn't have his trademark speed and is forced to make use of his super strength to combat enemies.

He has the ability to stretch his limbs and can easily climb/reach ledges and poles. Sonic also has the ability to generate a force-field as a means to defend himself against an enemy assault.
