Sonic the Hedgehog is the protagonist of the phenomenal Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games. He is also the mascot of the SEGA company and a playable character in the Super Smash Bros. series.
Sonic, being the fastest thing alive, uses his trademark speed as a very pivotal part of his playstyle. When he runs into someone, he goes straight past them, allowing him to set up mixups and crossups easily. As such, he is considered a rushdown character. Sonic's major holdback, however is his very low health. Sonic possesses the lowest health in the game, allowing him to be killed easily when punished and even be 100%'d by certain high damaging combos.
- Possibly the best rushdown game out of any of the characters.
- Fast runspeed and dashjump allows Sonic to shut down fullscreen shenanigans
- Free crossups let Sonic overwhelm players unexperienced with the matchup
- No reliable projectile
- Low health
- Stubby normals
- One of the lowest fever stocks in the game makes his damage and potential underwhelming
