Exploring the Rich Legacy and Diverse Universe of 소닉

소닉 the Hedgehog: Sega’s Iconic Game and Its Global Impact

Sega created and owns 소닉 the Hedgehog, a Japanese video game franchise. Japanese developers Yuji Naka, Naoto Ohshima, and Hirokazu Yasuhara established the series to compete in entertainment, particularly video games. Mainline 소닉 the Hedgehog games are platformers produced by 소닉Team; spin-off games, often outsourced, cover a variety of genres. The franchise comprises books, animations, movies, and goods.

Common features

Giant Rings

Giant Rings, a type of Ring, are hidden in the games’ stages and can be jumped through to take the character to a Special Stage where they can acquire Chaos or Super Emeralds.

Shuttle loops

Shuttle loops are circular loop-de-loops of unknown origin that the player runs through on the stage’s main path. In 2D games, the player must accelerate to get through them, but in 3D games, the character is launched into them with a set speed once they get near the structure, preventing backtracking.

Chaos Emeralds

소닉 games frequently feature the Chaos Emeralds, seven mythical emeralds. They’re crucial to most games’ narratives, and the player must gather them all to beat Dr. Eggman and get “good endings” or Super forms. Each game has a different way to get the Emeralds.

Master Emerald

Knuckles the Echidna guards the Master Emerald in a shrine on Angel Island, which has infinite power greater than the seven Chaos Emeralds and keeps Angel Island afloat. This massive green Emerald can regulate everything the Chaos Emeralds do, even negating their energy.The Master Emerald can power mechanical machines, and Dr. Robotnik has wanted it since his discovery.

Special Stages

~Special Stages and Zones usually award Chaos Emeralds. 소닉 the Hedgehog 2, 소닉 3D Blast, 소닉 Heroes, and 소닉 Rush featured “in your face” segments with the hedgehog running along a long tunnel, with a variant of this used for Knuckles’ Chaotix, 소닉 Advancing, and 소닉 Heroes. Special Stages have surreal environments and alternate gameplay mechanics. 소닉 Chaos (소닉 & Tails in Japan) levels used several gimmicks.


Since 소닉’s first appearance in 소닉 the Hedgehog on June 23, 1991 (despite a cameo in Rad Mobile), many more characters have appeared, most of whom have joined the main cast. Since joining the franchise, many of these characters have built fanbases, however some longtime fans have criticized them for stealing 소닉’s gameplay focus away:

He looks like a different doctor with his thick shades, nasal voice, and gray mustache.

Orbot & Cubot

Robots Dr. Eggman created to help him. The circular Orbot and square Cubot are a couple.


Orbot is the mind, more serious and firm. Despite following his master’s orders and working hard, his bitter sarcasm sometimes annoys Dr. Eggman. Straight man to Cubot’s comedian.


Cubot is kind and laid-back. Despite having Orbot’s CPU, he’s slow to adapt. He admires Dr. Eggman, but he acts like a sloth and doesn’t want to wake up, so he upsets him. To Orbot’s straight guy, Cubot is humorous.
