Only Sonic characters that should stay:

Sonic(dur)

Tails(surrogate brother/sidekick)

Knuckles(rival)

Amy(comic relief)

Eggman(main baddie)

Metal Sonic(great villain)

.....and that's pretty much it. Shadow would be fine, but only if he dies in the end like was supposed to. Cream is adorable, but she has no reason to be there. I would not touch Trunks wannabe the Hedgehog with a 20 foot pole. the rest of the characters feel like filler to me.

He never really played a major role in the games, he was just a background character. He could have had a chance to shine (he was playable in Sonic Adventure for Dreamcast), but he fell by the wayside before he ever had that chance.

Big hasn't been relevant in years. Is this news? I'd be more impressed if it was Shadow the Hedgehog given the boot.

Which still surprises me that Jon St. John AKA Duke fucking Nukem voiced Big.

Well, That's one down. that just leaves 16 or 17 more characters to axe before were down to just Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Robotnik. C'mon Sega, let's commence with the rest of the axing!

Yup, I've played all of them actually... They're pretty good. But I still think Sega needs to axe almost all the Sonic characters for good.

Now if they would just retire the Sonic franchise.
Its well past dead, it has no dignity left, but for crying out loud stop defecating on the corpse!

Sonic ceased being relevant 12:00AM January 1st 2000, because his very core was too heavily steeped in the "X-TREME!" attitude of the 1990s.

I don't think the attitude's the problem. It's more Sega's inability to code a program a decent game that mostly involves running since that date. It's staggering how bad they are at it.

Well and there's that.
Still even with a well coded game, if people can't get behind the character anymore, its a wasted effort. Just look at that new Rayman game. No one outside of Rayman's small, but die hard fan base gave a shit, and it didn't sell very well.

No, he should have been canned during development. But hey, this seems to a sign that perhaps Sega hasn't gone entirely off the deep end.

Now for Silver, Shadow, CREAM (useless after Sonic Advance 2), and Vanilla.

Why stop there? We could get rid of many of the single shot characters, and everyone from Sanic 2006. Except for Princess Whats-her-face. We need to keep her around in case the series needs terminated fast. :dummy:

The only new character I like is Blaze because she isn't annoying like the rest. Team Chaotix can stay since they've been around forever. Omega can stay since he's a decent robot.

I don't care if Rouge gets nixed or stays. Some of the other characters were one time only like that Marine girl so they had an appearance and were done immediately.

Personally, I think Rough was thrown into the series so it wouldn't be an entire sausagefest; but at least she had more reason to exist than Princess Peach.

XoPachi Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012
Princess Peach. And they did have Amy since Sonic CD (I suppose way more if you want to count the comics and the cartoons), but I suppose a token female is a bit cliche and unfair. Rouge is fun to play as though...as much as Knuckles since she didn't play too different in Adventure 2.

My poor attention span. Though with Big I don't mind if he's in the background occasionally doing funny stuff like in Adventure 2.

They should have unmade him before he was even made.
