Sonic the Hedgehog 4/Episode 2. I think they’re good, but others disagree. >_>
If you disagree with any of these, let me know. This will be a work in progress.
Don’t like ANY of the games? Read the comics! The Sonic franchise is multi-faceted, so you technically don’t have to play any of the games to be a fan.
Here’s the recommended reading order: en-forums.sonicscanf.org/topic/3 … es/?page=1
Sonic the Hedgehog (StH) = The mainline Sonic the Hedgehog series.
Knuckles the Echidna = A 32-issue series about Knuckles defending his island and its inhabitants.
Sonic Universe (SU) = Sonic Universe is a companion series to the mainline Sonic the Hedgehog series that ties into the mainline series. It focuses more on world-building, and characters NOT Sonic.
Sonic the Comic = A separate Sonic comic altogether that ended in the early 2000s. Different storyline entirely, made in Europe. It’s a good read.
Sonic Boom: An Archie Sonic series based in the Sonic Boom universe. Focuses on comedy.
Megaman: An archie comic series based on the Blue Bomber! Ties into the Sonic series by Archie.
The Lara Su Chronicles: KEN PENDERS WHAT ARE YOU DOING AHHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!! Don’t acknowledge these.
Like cartoons? Here’s a watch guide:
Sonic the Hedgehog SatAM: Released in the 90s, this show serves as the launchpad for the comics that goes into a different direction. This series spawned most of the early fanart of the series, and was hella dark with good pacing and storytelling and animation. Jaleel White is amazing as always. Definitely worth watching and buying the DVDs and keeping FOREVER.
Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog: A comedy-based show released in the 90s with questionable animation starring Scratch and Grounder, Coconuts, and the first iteration of Sonic to use Jaleel White as the main voice actor. Hit or miss depending on your preference, watch with discretion. I personally love this series, it’s what made me a Sonic fan.
Sonic Underground: An action-adventure series starring Knuckles, new villains Sleet and Dingo, along with Sonic’s brother and sister, Manic and Sonia. Sonic and his siblings are all voiced by Jaleel White. Yaaaayyy.
Don’t watch this one. Stay far away. Sonic’s mom and Sonic himself are OK, but everything else is unwatchable.
Sonic X: A Sonic series released in the early 2000s starring the entire cast of Sonic Adventure 2/Heroes, with new characters like Christopher Thorndyke and the Menorex.I dislike this show, but most love it, so check it out and see if it’s your thing.
Sonic Boom: The most recent cartoon, based in the Sonic Boom universe. Deserves a watch if you like Sonic Boom
Sonic the Hedgehog OVA: An anime two-parter released as one movie in the early 2000s as Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie, featuring Knuckles, Tails, Eggman, and METAL FUCKING SONIC. Also features a cameo from Sara “GreenSonic”" Garcia. It’s canon now, because I said so.
I can’t recommend this enough. . Made by the same animators that made the FMV cutscenes in Sonic CD, this entire thing is incredible. Definitely worth watching, even if only to see Sonic get waxed by Metal.
Happy playing, and keep the speed going guys.
