Sonic the Hedgehog is the main protagonist of the Sonic Boom series. He is an anthropomorphic hedgehog gifted with super speed, who fights Dr. Eggman and other forces of evil alongside his group of friends as the leader of Team Sonic to preserve peace and freedom.
Sonic retains most of the appearance from his main series counterpart, but has a few physical and clothing differences. He is much slimmer, with longer arms and legs and more pronounced shoulders, giving him a lanky appearance. His hands are also noticeably smaller. Sonic's quills are also slightly shorter and messier, having some cowlick-like spikes that sticks out from his top and lower quills, and his arms are covered in blue fur, as opposed to being skin-colored.
For attire, Sonic wears a pair of white gloves with cuffs and a pair of red sneakers, which have white cuffs, grey soles, and a large, rectangular gold buckle on the top. Both of his gloves and sneakers have white sports tape around them, which is wrapped around his palms, the lower half of his arms and legs, and the heels of his sneakers. Finally, he sports a short brown neckerchief around his neck.
Much like the wind, Sonic is free-spirited and always on the move. He has a passion for adventure and is very much a thrill-seeker, always looking for the next thrill, challenge, and triumph. For Sonic, speed is a way of life; he runs fast, thinks fast, and even eats fast. Being addicted to speed and action, Sonic gets bored and restless during extended times of peace. In fact, Sonic cannot process the aspect of being restricted and being unable to move makes him extremely stir crazy. He acts on instinct and lives in the moment, though he is very impatient, impulsive and tends to run headlong into trouble without a plan. While he can be shortsighted of others' feelings (making him blunt, honest, and rude to a fault), his heart is nevertheless always in the right place.
Sonic's typical driving force is his immensely large, self-obsessed ego, yet his demeanor is normally laid-back, cool and carefree. Possessing a snarky tongue and sassy attitude, he is cocky, brash, quick-witted and often jokes around even in dire situations. He likewise has a playful, albeit never mean-spirited, arrogance about him and likes to play small pranks. When the situation calls for it though, Sonic can be serious and will immediately rush to aid those in dire need. Always on the heroic side of things, Sonic is very benevolent with a strong sense of honor, justice and fair play, being fully committed to helping out those in need at all times. Sonic also does not back down or give up, because he has an unwavering belief and faith in himself and his abilities. Sonic is also noted to be very courageous. However, he suffers from a severe case of aquaphobia which has only worsened with time. He is also a bit of a slop at times, and chores do not sit well with him.
While he often acts like he does not care, Sonic is rather protective of his image. To this end, he will get rid of any documentation and preferably dodge any performance that does not show him looking cool, even if it means his friends will look bad. He is likewise uncomfortable about being open about his feelings and actively tries to dodge such conversations. However, he is willing to lower his guard for the sake of his friends. Sonic can also get rather over-competitive when contending with another, prompting him to let things get way out of hand out of overconfidence. In case he loses a competition, Sonic becomes obsessed and borderline crazy about settling the score with his opponent, as he cannot accept the fact that he can actually lose. Despite having his own fair share of quirks and willing to fool around just for the sake of it though, Sonic is very grounded and has a profound common sense that often makes him the "straight man" amongst his friends.
Though rather selfless when saving the Village, Sonic does come off as somewhat sensitive about his hero-status, becoming extremely jealous, defensive, and frustrated whenever someone else rivals his fame, steals the spotlight or when the civilians turn against him. As such, when deprived of the chance to be the hero, Sonic gladly springs into action when he gets the opportunity to save the day in the end. This mindset even led to him temporarily retiring due to how ungrateful the citizens were for his efforts. Even so, when the times really call for it, Sonic will forgo his opinions to help those in need. Sonic is also a true chili dog enthusiast who can identify the ingredients of a chili dog with one bite.
Sonic is noted to be strongly loyal towards his friends. Though he may not always show it, he cares deeply for his friends and will do anything for them. Early on though, Sonic was somewhat of a loner and cynical. While he was willing to work with his friends in times of need, he would show more interest in going out alone and would even take credit for what the team did collectively. In time though, Sonic grew to see how his team made him stronger and realized that his friends were his strength. Since then, Sonic has become a much more admirable team leader, being quick to ask for help and acknowledge their collective contributions. Regardless, Sonic's confidence tends to get in the way of his team spirit, as he sometimes feels that things will get done more efficiently if he handles them alone. This attitude also makes him kind of snarky and boastful in the faces of his friends at times. Although Sonic usually defends his actions in such cases, he is nonetheless capable of admitting such mistakes. He also strongly believes in the friendship his team shares and will never do anything to compromise it; Tails in particular has noted that Sonic will never give up on his friends, "no matter how bad things [get].
In Mario and Sonic's adventures in London:The Series,Sonic is Mario's best friend who always stays on his side.Like his friends,Sonic is playful and courageous as he's always very helpful and loving.Like Bowser Jr and Metal Sonic,Sonic loves messing with Dr.Eggman,Bowser Jr's official uncle.
In the episode "Bowser in Charge",Vector asked Sonic why he loves pranking and Sonic answered Vector's question with pure playfulness "Cause that's my specialty!" as Vector rolled his eyes in annoyance and sighs.Sonic was then seen with Mario relaxing at London city beach after the insane party until they suddenly got sand hit in their faces as they said "Hey! What the?!" and saw Bowser Jr and Metal Sonic with two spades and buckets of sand in their hands while the two heroes jaw dropped as Bowser Jr said "That's what you get for pranking us earlier!" and Sonic said "OK Bowser Jr! We're sorry for pranking you,Metal Sonic,Bowser and Dr.Eggman earlier! Now leave us alone!" but Bowser Jr didn't listen as he threw a sand ball at Sonic in his face while Sonic said angrily "What'd I just tell you,Bowser Jr?! Leave use alone!" and Bowser Jr said "Sorry! Throwing sand in your face is hilarious and fun!".Sonic said to Mario after he saw a red cape on the ground while Bowser told his son and Metal Sonic to take them down "Mario,wanna tease them like bulls in Spain?" and Mario said "You know I would!".After Metal Sonic and Bowser Jr crashed onto BullBot's fence,BullBot wakes up from his rest and saw Mario and Sonic laughing at Bowser Jr,Bowser and Metal Sonic as he gets angry at the two heroes while it gave Metal Sonic an idea and releases BullBot from his pen with his eye laser beams.When BullBot pointed his horns at the two laughing heroes,Mario and Sonic gasp in horror and their eyes opened in horror.After seeing BullBot angry in horror,Mario and Sonic scream and run away in fear as BullBot chased after them.
In the episode "Jet Mii comes to London city",Sonic and Vector tease and bully Jet Mii so much,that Luigi is annoyed by their bullying to Jet Mii.Sonic and Vector were then seen attempting to tag Jet Mii but tag Luigi instead as the trio fall into a pile of mud and the bullying duo realized that Jet Mii made it to home base.Sonic and Vector then played catch with Jet Mii's goggles,making Jet Mii play catch to get his goggles back and Luigi watches along with Mario,Metal Sonic,Silver,Jet,Toad and Cream.
In the episode "Delivery duo",Mario made a bet with Sonic that he can't do all of the Pefana's diner orders in three minutes or less with a partner of his choice.He then told Sonic that he'll get dunked into water if he loses the bet and Sonic agreed by tells Mario that he has to eat a poison mushroom if he loses the bet and the two heroes made their bet,Bowser Jr decides to help Sonic with the orders.Sonic and Bowser Jr were then a delivery service duo who deliver food all around London city including Bowser and Dr.Eggman's house in three minutes or less.Bowser Jr and Sonic were then seen delivering Bowser and Dr.Eggman's order but only find their badniks in front of the entrance as the duo stopped immediately and Bowser Jr said fearfully when Sonic said that one minute is too much time and decides to take a nap "Ahh! One minute is not enough time! We gotta hurry,Sonic! There's no time to waste! Ahh! Go! Run,run,run!".Bowser Jr said to Sonic while pointing at the secret tunnel they delivered food to earlier "Hey Sonic! Isn't that tunnel we delivered food to earlier?" and Sonic smirked at Bowser Jr,making him notice that Sonic had a plan because of that smirk as Bowser Jr asked Sonic "Why are you looking at me like that?" while Sonic asked Bowser Jr "Are there any robot disguises that belong to you?" and Bowser Jr said "Yeah! Why?".Sonic then whispered his plan to Bowser Jr,making Bowser Jr put a big grin on his face and he said in full excitement while winking at Sonic "Oho! That plan is brilliant! Let's do it!".Sonic and Bowser Jr manage to get Bowser and Dr.Eggman's delivery on time with one second to spare and the delivery duo high five.
In the episode "Hiccups",Sonic,Mario and their friends including Blu and his friends try to get rid of Silver's hiccups but none of their ideas have worked.Mario and Sonic were going to do their idea until Shadow stops them saying "Whoa,whoa,whoa! Let me handle this you guys!" and Mario and Sonic said angrily "Fine Shadow! Let's see you get rid of Silver's hiccups!".After Shadow did his perfect lion roar,which Sticks loved,Mario and Sonic punch Shadow's arms as they said angrily "That's for reading our minds and stealing our idea!" and Shadow said "I'm sorry guys!".Mario,Sonic and the gang,except Silver and Blu and his friends,were then having a food fight against Toad,Cream and Cheese and tried their best to win but they lost because of Toad,Cream and Cheese's fast food throw strategy.After Blu and the gang got out of Silver's quils when the food fight ended and saw how big Silver's stomach is,Mario,Sonic and the gang help Silver lose stomach weight but his hiccups were gone because Cream said that Silver must've ate the food during the food fight while Blu and the gang were in his quils and waited for the food fight to end.
In the short "Where's Silver?" (Then renamed "Trickster by the dozen" after a few weeks),Sonic said to Shadow "Shut it! I'm trying to find Silver here!" and Shadow said angrily "How'd about you shut it! I'm finding Silver!" as Sonic said angrily "What'd you say?!" and Shadow said angrily "You heard me,Blue Blur! I'm finding Silver!".Sonic and Shadow then fought for the chance to find Silver and Silver notices that Sonic and Shadow are fighting,making him realize that his trick got a bit too far and stops Sonic and Shadow's fight by throwing a ball in the middle of the two fighting hedgehogs.Sonic and Shadow then fought over the ball and Silver watches them in laughter as he then catches the ball when it was approaching him.Sonic and Shadow then tried to get the ball back from Silver but both of them failed.
Sonic's fears in Mario and Sonic's adventures in London:The Series are water (as always),Boo (hidden from many sonic games until in the TV series revealed his hidden fear on TV and no,this is not any of Sonic's most embarrassing moments if you're asking this in the comments),Amy dating or marring him (marring Amy is Sonic's worse nightmare) and BullBot (only in the episode "Bowser in Charge",BullBot was more friendly to Mario,Sonic and the gang and helped them in later episodes).He,along with the rest of the Sonic crew and Bowser,also has a hate of being spooked by Boo Mii and tries to attack her but fails every single time.
