Who is the fastest character in the Sonic universe?

16 posts in this topic

Who do you think is the fastest character in the Sonic universe?

For me lets go down the list.
Normally the debate is about Sonic or Shadow, but all of Shadows speed comes from his hover shoes and without his shoes he's probably not nearly as fast.

So that leaves sonic but WAIT, in multiple games it is said that Sonic wears speed shoes, which lets him go at such speeds meaning that he is not as fast without the shoes.

So that would leave eggman or knuckles.

Well Eggman has outrun sonic in multiple occasions but it can be argued that Sonic was going slow for him. Even so, Sonic had his speed Shoes on for those instances.

So now I look at Knuckles, he was faster then Sonic in SA2, not to mention he was also wearing metal spikes, metal rods/heavy stuff so he was being weighed down and STILL running that fast. So it is clear that Knuckles is the fastest in the series right???? BUT WAIT! There is one more.

In Sonic adventure 2 battle multiplayer Tikal's gimmick is her speed for cost of radar distance. And since she is the fastest treasure hunter even faster than Knuckles, that makes her faster then Knuckles meaning that Tikal is the fastest character in the sonic universe!

But lets hear what you think, who do you think is the fastest character int he sonic universe?

Thing is, Sonic doens't wear "the shoes that make him go fast". He wears normal sneakers which remove friction between his feet and the ground. They are unleashing (hehe) his legs' true potential, in a way. There's also the fact that it's implied Sonic is able of much faster speeds, but willingly holds back because he wants to have fun. His "hidden potential" is tapped in only during Sonic Battle at the end (won't spoil, promise!). There's also the fact that in the classic games, the Super Peel Out, with a bit of acceleration, makes him reach the absolute fastest speed achievable in the games (16 pixels per frame!). It's true that Tails and Knuckles can do it as well, but they need copious amount of slopes to do so (and while rolling).

I... also don't know why you say good ol' Knux is faster than Sonic in SA2? Are you talking about the multiplayer? Because that's pretty much noncanon.

Sonic is the fastest, it's his thing. Other characters coming with extra abilities and being faster would make Sonic pointless.

Counter-argument: there is no air friction in space! Sonic's shoes lose their power.

He is a human! He can't breathe in space. That means he has... air... around... his body?

Like the Guardians of The Galaxy's space suits. 

EDIT: Or maybe he just popped a speed shoes monitor earlier.

Is that a game thing or just a Kintobor origin thing?

I believe it is the one thing they kept.

If we're allowed to say Tikal is officially faster than Sonic because of her game mechanics in the 2-player mode of a game she isn't even featured in, then I'm allowed to say Tails' character is literally immortal across the whole franchise.

He truly is the ultimate lifeform.

Now I'm picturing the fight against Shadow with Tails' SA1 theme.
