Top 10 Worst Sonic Characters


Top 10 Worst Characters in Sonic Sonic has a slew of characters that are loveable,
relatable and incredibly fun to play. But naturally, a franchise that large is bound
to have a few bad eggs that leave behind a sour taste for players. And while some of the characters on this list
do have a solid fan base of Sonic fans who dig them, for the most part, their reception
has been negative. So today, we’re counting down the top 10
worst characters in sonic. Hopefully, you’re favourite didn’t make
the list. 10 Amy Rose
Starting off this list with a character whose gotten a lot of mixed feelings, Amy Rose is
one of the more iconic Sonic characters in the franchise’s history. And while a lot of people adore her, many
despise her for being needy and clingy with Sonic. That being said, despite her character traits,
she’s a pretty fun character to play, and, unlike many of the other characters on this
list, actually serves a purpose in most of the game appearances she’s made. 9 Shahra the Genie
Shahra the Genie is one of many absolutely useless characters on this list. She’s meant to guide you in Sonic and the
Secret Rings, but really just throws unhelpful dialogue at you. That at times can be flat out distracting. And in terms of the games narratives, she
doesn’t do much to help Sonic progress in his adventure, or defeat any foes, despite,
you know, being a genie. 8 Dr Eggman Nega
One of the unfortunate habits Sega has picked up over the years is creating new characters
by ripping off old ones. While we’ll get into that later on when
it concerns Sonic and some almost-dopplegangers of his, for this number, we’ll be looking
at Eggman’s duplicate – Eggman Nega. Appearing in Sonic Rush, Nega is essentially
the exact same character with different colours. And added Nega to the end of his name. And has no interesting character development
that sets him aside as a character in his own right. 7 Cream The Rabbit
From her obnoxious high pitch voice to her constant crying, Cream has been deemed as
one of the more annoying characters in the Sonic franchise. The largest criticism for Cream is that she’s
pretty useless; without Cheese her chao, she can’t really do a whole lot when it comes
to attacking. So, what’s the point? 6 Omochao
Kind of like Navi from the Legend of Zelda, Omochao is first introduced to us in a game
tutorial in And oh boy, did it rub players the wrong way. So much so that players have actually tried
to kill the character during the game, to no avail. 5 Silver the Hedgehog
Silver is another character who received a mixed reception from fans. First appearing in,
Silver felt like another carbon copy of Sonic. With Shadow already in the mix, Silver felt
redundant. Like Sega felt the need to add another version
of Sonic to the mix, except this one is totally different since he travels through time. At least Shadow has a distinct personality
and actually gives Sonic competition when it comes to speed. 4 Charmy Bee
Another useless character, Charmy first appeared in Knuckles Chaotix, and didn’t really add
anything to the team. Charmy is hyper, loud and outspoken, but doesn’t
really have anything interesting to say, and causes more trouble than it’s worth, even
in the cut scenes, by being reckless and clumsy. To be fair, the character is only 6 years
old, and, like many of the other characters on this list, is a child character that tends
to get heat for being so juvenile. What’s probably worse for Charmy is that
in the Archie comics, he’s 16, but because he’s gained a significant amount of brain
damage which causes him to behave the way he does in the games. 3 Chris Thorndyke
The only reason Christ didn’t score our top spot is that he’s from the animated
series Sonic X. Chris is notoriously viewed as the worst character in Sonic history, being
fairly useless in the show aside from adding a hefty amount of whining. Pretty much every purpose he’s suppose to
serve is fulfilled by another character, and fans didn’t like the fact that he was suppose
to be ‘Sonic’s best friend’. When, you know, he already had a more than
adequate best friend and sidekick in Tails. He’s rich, entitled, and critics called
him “dull, boring and uninspired”. 2 Big the Cat
First appearing in Sonic Adventure DX, Big the Cat was introduced in order to developers
to justify adding a fishing mini game. Fans hated the large, slow cat and were irritated
by his general laziness, considering his character is suppose to be 18 years old. He’s constantly losing things, that you
then need to go find, which was also an annoyance for fans. And that voice? Yeah. On the other side of things, some fans actually
liked the character. But, to add insult to injury, Big the Cat
appears in Sonic X, and has to – once again – search for Froggy. But this time, he has the help of our number
3, Chris Thorndyke. Ah, a match made in heaven. 1 Princess Elise III
Making your debut in the most despited Sonic game ever surely can’t be easy. And Princess Elise’s involvement in the
Sonic 06 narrative doesn’t help much either. Elise is a bit of a spoiled princes, literally,
and spends a lot of the game crying about stuff. She also has the hots for Sonic, leading to
one of the most awkward kisses in video game history, which has fuelled many Sonic fans’
disdain for the character. Aside from the kiss, she’s pretty much useless,
and fans have compared her to Princess Peach of the mario franchise, except crappier. There we have it friends! Who is your most despised Sonic character? Let us know in those comments below. And as always, if you dug this list, please

100 thoughts on “Top 10 Worst Sonic Characters

  1. These characters have way more than just being in the games. They usually make the characters for entertainment and for the TV shows. Why do they all have to be useful in the games? They are fun characters!

  2. First of all you think I’m the worst check the comments and you put me on the best Sonic characters list and now you hate me

  3. I think Kelly Paoli is biased
    ARE YOU RACIST AGAINST WHITE HEDGEHOGS
    DID PETE CAPELLA CHEAT ON YOU
    ARE YOU ANTI PSYCHIC
    DO YOU HATE HIS HAIRSTYLE
    AT LEAST EXPLAIN YOUR STUPID SILVER HATE!!!

  4. Cream cant do much since she's just 6 years old… mah poor floofy jumper qwp
    But these are just opinions sooo I cant really criticize them 😐

  5. inhales
    1. you're pronouncing chao wrong
    2. charmy is important comic relief for the seriousness of team chaotix
    3. silver is cool, even if he made his debut in one of the worst games
    4. cream is a great character, they're supposed to be the cute little kid one
    5. big the cat is also a great character, hes supposed to be the silly overweight lazy one.

    whoever scripted this or made the list doesnt know how character tropes work. you guys just expect every character to be cool and great??

    i sound like a nerd ranting about sonic characters but jeez you guys dont know how this stuff works.

  6. I'm sorry but I need to expulse my hate for what you've said:
    CREAM IS THE BEST YOU "'"&&" I MEAN ALL THE CONCEPT OF SHE IS TOO ATTACK WITH CHEESE CUZ SHE IS WELL BRHAVED AND B6-'- FOR A KID SHE'S OVERPOWERED AND ONE OF THE BEST SONIC CHARACTER EVER(SONIC ANDVANCE 2 CHAO ATTACK, SONIC BATTLE HER RECOVERY, SONIC RIDER THE MOS LIGHT CHARACTER)
    CREAM IS THE BEST.
    AND FROM DO YOU PUT CHARMY IN THIS LIST. HE IS ANNOYING, KIDDY, AND DUMB BUT THAT'S THE REASON TO LOVE HIM CUZ HE SO FRIGGIN AWESOME AND HE'S A BEE AND LIFTED VECTOR AND ESPIO AND HE IS HIMSELF.

    AND AMY IS ALSO ONE OF THE BEST FOR OBVIOUS REASON

  7. I could see that I'm not the only one who likes Amy, Cream, and Silver, but am I the only one who likes Shahra, and ironically, the dialogue she has with Sonic?

  8. This list is stupid. Amy, Cream, and Silver are good. Cream and Amy were stupid, Like how can you hate someone for thier voice. They were born with it! Cream is wortless? In Sonic X she beat up Emerl without Cheese attacking. In Sonic Advance 2 she kills bosses easily. Silver is a funny character, that is one of the only things Sonic fans liked about 06. Everyone say it with me…. IT'S NO USE! Anyway most of these lists are stupid, including Sonic couples part 2. It made bleach tasty.

  9. Silver?! SILVER?!!! He's one of my absolute favourites! Ok, I will never, I repeat NEVER, subscribe to your channel!!! I hope you feel good about yourself!

  10. Big the cat appears in every level in Sonic Adventure 2. He was my first Easter egg. Try finding him!!!

  11. Hey silver is faster that sonic and shadow and telekinesis and time travel are awesome ask google ☹️😡

  12. 4:42 ah no no no Peach is way worse all she does is get captured and has no character development (besides in the paper Mario series but we all know where that series went)
