Sonic The Hedgehog

“Gotta go fast!” The Blue Blur first raced onto the Sega Mega Drive in 1991, and since then he’s become a phenomenon. Once viewed as Mario’s main competitor (the two are now basically best friends, thanks to the Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games series), Sonic’s games were celebrated for their speedy gameplay, lush environments, and intricate, secret-packed levels. The hugely popular hedgehog has spawned his own animated series, comics, a live-action film, and an enormous fanfiction following, and while not every game has been a hit, Sonic’s never shown any signs of slowing down.
