These are the Sonic The Hedgehog characters that I like the most.
Sonic The HedgehogEdit
Sonic the Hedgehog (ソニック・ザ・ヘッジホッグSonikku za Hejjihoggu?), trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is a video game character and the main protagonist of the Sonic video game series released by Sega, as well as in numerous spin-off comics, cartoons, and a feature film. The first game was released on June 23, 1991, to provide Sega with a mascot to rival Nintendo's flagship characterMario (see 1991 in video gaming). Since then, Sonic has become one of the world's best-known video game characters, with his series having sold more than 80 million copies. In 2005, Sonic was one of the first game character inductees into the Walk of Game, alongside Mario and Link.
While many individuals at Sega had a hand in Sonic's creation, programmer Yuji Naka and artist Naoto Ōshima are generally credited with the creation of the character, a blue 15-year-old anthropomorphic hedgehog, who has the ability to run at supersonic speeds and the ability to curl into a ball, primarily to attack enemies. This is a major part of the gameplay of the series.
Miles "Tails" ProwerEdit
Miles Prower (マイルス・パウアーMairusu Pauā?), better known by his nickname Tails (テイルスTeirusu?), is a character, as well as the main deuteragonist in the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games, comics, animated series and film released by Sega.
The name "Miles Prower" is a pun on "miles per hour", a reference to the famed speed of Sonic the Hedgehog. He is an eight-year old foxwith two tails, hence the nickname. He is known to be Sonic's sidekick and a mechanic. He is able to use his two tails to propel himself into the air like a helicopter for a limited time. His debut was in October 16, 1992 in the 8-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2; the16-bit version was released that November.
When he was first introduced in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Tails' fur was orange. The color was changed to yellow-orange for Sonic Adventure, and later to light yellow for Sonic Heroes. In 1993 and 1995, he starred in his own games, Tails and the Music Maker for the Pico, Tails Adventure, and Tails' Skypatrol for the Game Gear.

His first appearance was in Sonic the Hedgehog 3, released in 1994 to introduce a new rival forSonic. He was presented as an antagonist who was tricked by Dr. Eggman into fighting Sonic. but after discovering this, he has been friends with Sonic since then. Knuckles is a 16-year-old red anthropomorphic echidna, who is both physically powerful and highly resilient. In most Sonic games, his skills include climbing on ledges or walls and gliding in the air for short periods of time.

Amy Rose (エミー・ローズEmī Rōzu?), known earlier as Rosy the Rascal, is a video game character who appears in most of the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games developed by Sega's Sonic Team, debuting in Sonic CD (1993) as the third recurring protagonist.

She has chased Sonic since her debut in 1993, and has been trying to win his heart in everything from the series' games to animated TV shows and comics. She is also one of the series most popular characters, coming in fifth place in an official popularity poll.
Like Sonic and other characters in the series, Amy is significantly shorter and lighter than humans her same age. She is 12 years old, 90 cm (2 ft 11in) tall She was originally described as being 8 years old in Sonic CD, but as of Sonic Adventure and onwards, she has grown older. Also, with the addition of Cream the Rabbit, Amy seems to have found herself a sidekick similar to Sonic's sidekick, Tails.

Blaze debuts in Sonic Rush as a playable character along with Sonic. She arrives in Sonic's dimension from another dimension along with the Sol Emeralds.

The Chaotix Detective AgencyEdit
Espio the Chameleon (エスピオ・ザ・カメレオンEsupio za Kamereon?) is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog video game series and media franchise.

Vector the Crocodile (ベクター・ザ・クロコダイルBekutā za Kurokodairu?) is the "head honcho" and brains of the Chaotix Detective Agency. Divided between being "bossy" and "easy-going," his rough speech and outward appearance mask his clear reasoning and ability to resolve cases. For the right price he'll take on most jobs, unless they involve doing something immoral. Vector has a strong sense of justice and kindness, despite his argumentativeness. He often does unpaid work due to his charitable nature, leaving the agency constantly short on money. Vector hates having to work for the landlord, but he enjoys singing, and his trademark is a set of headphones. He is physically very strong and his powerful jaws are a formidable weapon.
Vector was originally supposed to be in the sound test of the first Sonic the Hedgehog game, but he, along with the feature itself, was removed prior to release. He was also part of Team Chaotix in Sonic Heroes and is featured in Shadow the Hedgehog.
Xbox World's preview of Sonic Heroes called Vector "rubbish too", highlighting his "stupid" visual appearance and name, and concluding that "he looks like a character created as a cheap Sonic copy."

Charmy Bee (チャーミー・ビーChāmī Bī?) is a bee who is the "scatter-brained funny-kid" of the Chaotix. He is cheerful, curious, playful, careless, and greatly energetic, often talking about things no one else cares about. Charmy's fooling around makes the rest of the detective agency staff look professional, and he is generally seen as a "cute mascot".Despite an innocent, good-natured and light-hearted personality, he uses his stinging tail on rare occasions that he gets angry. In addition being a playable character in Sonic Heroes and Shadow the Hedgehog, he made cameos in both Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games installments as a referee.
