Sonic is one of the most enduring characters on the gamescape. He was created as Sega’s competition for Nintendo’s very popular Mario, and compete he has! Over 70,000,000 Sonic the Hedgehog games have been sold, and that’s not including the more than 10,000,000 downloads since Sonic took to the internet in 2006.
Sonic has some impressive abilities, most of all his speed. But, true to his hedgehog makeup, he can’t swim. He can use his speedy legs to dart short distances on the surface of the water, but deep waters are not his friend. Speaking of friends, he does have a few: Tails, Amy Rose, Knuckes and Spin Dash, to name a few. Not every friend is present in every game, but he always as a few characters in his corner.
Sonic the Hedgehog is popular even beyond the gamescape. He has made Sega proud (and brought in royalties) with animated TV shows, comic books, and even a major motion picture. Being popular in multi-media platforms has kept Sonic part of pop-culture and in demand. So popular that Sonic was the first video game character to be featured in a Rose Parade float at the world-famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Just one more thing on the list of Sonic’s claim to fame. From cereal boxes to backpacks, it’s safe to say that Sonic is loved and present beyond the gaming consoles.
