Sonic the Hedgehog is the titular protagonist of the video game franchise of the same name. He is a blue anthropomorphic hedgehog born to run faster than the speed of sound, as his name suggests, and possesses lightning fast reflexes to match. As his species suggests, Sonic can also roll up into a concussive ball, primarily to attack foes.
Ever since stepping into the battle against iniquity, Sonic has been the champion of peace and is renowned all over the world for saving it numerous times. During his many adventures, Sonic has traveled from the ends of the world to the far reaches of space and time, facing countless trials that have tested him to the fullest, earning him many titles, allies and the scorns of several enemies. Famous for his legendary cocky attitude, easy-going demeanor and somewhat short temper, yet strong sense of justice, compassion, and enjoyment for freedom and adventure, Sonic uses his abilities to protect the innocent from his world and those beyond from the forces of evil, especially his arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman.
