|Universe||Sonic the Hedgehog|
|Debut||Sonic the Hedgehog (1991)|
Sonic the Hedgehog is the main character of his self named series built around speed and percesion.
The series has been on a decline as of late but seems to be making a comeback with the announced Project Needlemouse.
Sonic was included in Brawl due to the incredible fan demand in both the U.S. and Japan and Europe.
In Brawl he's the fastest character on the ground but is hurt by his slow air speed, light weight, and low prority moves, however he is still used by both casual and competitive players due to the fact that he is so well liked.
In Brawl+ he's a very combo heavy character that is quite proficient in air combat and "the ol' hit and run routine", although he is still lighter then most of the cast.
- Neutral-Homing Attack: A move made popular in the 3-D games.Sonic balls up and rises a bit then launches himself at his opponent. He can jump after this move in midair if he hits or misses as long as he didn't already use his midair jump.
- SMASH-Spin Dash: Sonic's signature move, Sonic will roll up inot a ball and spin in place until the special button is released once it is released he will roll forward and can be controlled and he can do an aerial right after a jump for a small combo.
- Down-Spin Charge:It's just like the SMASH version except that you can charge it by tapping Special and you hold down to keep it in place and release it.
- Up-Spring Jump: The signature spring of the Sonic series appears under sonic and he bounced up very quickly, if used in the air the spring will vanish if it's hits the floor but can hit his opponent for minimal damage if used on the ground it will stay there for a while and anyone can use it. Sonic can use his aerial moves after this but cannot jump or use another spring until he hit the ground.
