You might know Sonic and his main pals, Tails and Knuckles, but the Sonic franchise — through dozens of games, TV shows, and comic books — has a sprawling cast of characters. Anthropomorphic animals and robots and aliens come together to form a rich tapestry and never-ending saga. All over the web you can find fan art, and debates and tributes to these characters.
But one fan tribute rises above the rest as the most disconcerting and funniest Sonic tribute I’ve ever seen. Those unlucky enough to know me well will eventually receive a link to this video. Years ago, a YouTube user named Guptill89 uploaded a video extolling the virtues of “the Top 10 Hottest Female Sonic Characters.” The video is something to behold: an enthusiastic, medium-creepy, clumsily written roundup of the extended Sonic universe’s most crushable babes. Every line of it will make you want to shrivel up into a husk and disappear from this reality. I cannot get enough of this video.
“Since Valentine’s Day is around the corner, I’ve been inspired to make a top-ten list of the most beautiful female Sonic characters,” our narrator informs us. How fitting then, that we should revisit this video on Valentine’s Day 2020, when the release of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie lands in theaters.
You can watch the video below. Or, if you’re already familiar, you can skip to the quiz that follows. Can you match the cringeworthy description to the corresponding Sonic character? Good luck!
Which Sonic Character Is This About?
Can you match each description from Guptill89's harrowing, classic "Top 10 Hottest Female Sonic Characters" video to the correct character? Let's find out!
Yes! It's Sonic the Hedgehog!
This was a gimme! How did you get this wrong?
Yes It's Cosmo! From Sonic X!
Get out of here!!! It's obviously Cosmo!
We stan creatures who are the size of an average human mother!
I can't believe you chose a character who is clearly NOT the size of an average human mother.
Why, it's Amy Rose, of course!
ROFLMAO I can't believe it. This character does NOT have three big, smooth arcs of hair sticking out of their forehead.
Yep! She hardly does a thing (except for defeating a god).
No way! Also if you guessed Sonica, I just made that up.
Yes! Can't top that mauve hair!
Two of these answers were obviously fake and the third is a dude. How'd you whiff this one?
Hell yeah, it's Wave!
Wrong! Just incredibly wrong. I'm embarrassed for you.
420 Blaze the Cat it.
Again, process of elimination would've shown you the way here.
And hair, you say???
Please brush up on your cascading quills.
Yes!! We respect anyone who is like a mother to Tails.
Wrong!! This character is not a mother to tails.
Correct! It's Rouge! The face that launched a thousand ships.
It’s a shame Mike Bloomberg can buy his way into the debate. But at least now primary voters curious about how each candidate will take on Donald Trump can get a live demonstration of how we each take on an egomaniac billionaire. https://t.co/H02radEZcv
A catastrophe that is receiving little attention in the American press
CNN: The United Nations says 900,000 people, mostly women and children, have been displaced in northwest Syria in the last 11 weeks, could become the “biggest humanitarian horror story of the 21st Century.”
Trump not exactly taking William Barr’s advice to stay out of cases
“Judge Jackson now has a request for a new trial based on the unambiguous & self outed bias of the foreperson of the jury, whose also a lawyer, by the way. ‘Madam foreperson, your a lawyer, you have a duty, an affirmative obligation, to reveal to us when we selected you the…..
Senator Tom Cotton is still promoting the debunked conspiracy theory that China engineered the coronavirus
“This analysis provides evidence that SARS-CoV-2 is not a laboratory construct nor a purposefully manipulated virus.” Before you read any speculation about SARS-CoV-2 origins, read this post by some leading researchers in pathogen evolution/genomics https://t.co/S2OeJuLCYS
The White House mole hunt sounds like the search for a serial killer
Officially, assistant to the president Peter Navarro is Trump’s point-man on trade policy. But Navarro has also taken it upon himself in recent weeks to uncover the identity of the person known simply as “Anonymous,” the senior Trump administration official who has railed against the president in the New York Times opinion pages and, most recently, in a bestselling book titled A Warning, and whose actual identity has so far confounded White House leak hunters.
Since at least the time of the impeachment process against Trump, Navarro—whom the president affectionately calls “my Peter”—began conducting his own private investigation into the identity of Anonymous, according to three sources with knowledge of Navarro’s efforts.
One of those sources described Navarro’s investigative efforts as partially an in-depth analysis of the language and phrases used in Anonymous’ book and other public writings. The process, as described to The Daily Beast, mimics forensic linguistic profiling, and the goal is to cross-reference Navarro’s “profile” with a list of potential suspects.
