How about all of you, I hope you are well, today I bring you a good candidate for a underrated hero from the Sonic the Hedgehog series, Big the Cat.
What's the Work
Sonic the Hedgehog is a video game series and media franchise created and owned by Sega. The franchise follows Sonic, an anthropomorphic blue hedgehog who battles the evil Doctor Eggman, a mad scientist. The main games are platformers mostly developed by Sonic Team; other games, developed by various studios, include spin-offs in the racing, fighting, party and sports genres.
Who is Big?
Big is a giant purple anthrophomontic cat whose best hobbies are hanging out with his pet frog named Froggy, relaxing and going fishing. He is also a member of Team Rose, along with Amy Rose and Cream the Rabbit.
Admirable Standards/Goodness Zone
I am going to analyze 3 major games in which he has appeared.
Sonic Adventure: Big embarked on finding Froggy in the Stages where is playable, but not only that, but he also helped Sonic defeat Chaos 6 who had captured Froggy and even rejoiced one of the Chaos Emeralds to give it to Sonic and defeat Perfect Chaos.
Sonic Heroes: In this game, he teams up with Amy and Cream on a mission to rescue Froggy and Chocola (Cheese's twin brother) and help the others teams to defeat Metal Sonic who was posing as Dr. Eggman.
Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood: In this role-playing game, He help Sonic and the rest of the characters stop a being called the Imperator Ix the Leader of the Nocturnus Clan, who was planning to rule the world.
To be honest, Big has no disqualifying factors, he really is a kind-hearted cat and even a pacifist, Only in Sonic Adventure, he scared Tails a little, when he had Froggy in his hands, making him think that he was hurting him.
In my opinion, Big is really a good character, and you have very kind acts, not only caring about his pet frog, but also helping his friends when necessary and he deserves a second chance and leaving behind the hatred of the fans.
