Game Theory: How Fast is Sonic the Hedgehog?
Just how fast can Sonic the Hedgehog actually run? Based on evidence from the Sonic video games, can this SEGA mascot really break the sound barrier? Game Theory takes its second look at the Sonic franchise.
Sonic is one of the cartoon characters that I like. There are many types of games with the same cartoon characters and they really liked this game. coolsculpting houston

The information that you have provided is very helpful. konsumen cerdas paham perlindungan konsumen cibadak sukabumi sewa mobil murah jakarta
EVERYTHING WE KNOW IS A LIE!!!!!!!!
one problem with this do to the fact sonics games are centered around him moving at the speed of sound then that would mean he does yeah its true if he was in the real world he would not be moving at the speed of sound but sonics world is not this one
Dr.Eggman: OH YAH! %($# THAT SONIC! I CAN RUN FASTER THAN YOU ^$^#
I think we could, well, at least a few of us anyway. But the majority of people would get too pissed off to play Sonic if he actually moved anywhere near the speed he should in the games.
I liked this game theory. But the thing is, if Sonic actually moved the speed that he should in the games, a lot of people would throw the game down because they wouldn't be able to control him well enough to even get through a level. Plus the thing with Mario in the first stage of his first game, he can't mank that run in 5 seconds without the use of that pipe. I think I remember doing a straight run clocking in at about maybe 20-25 seconds. My friends and I were seeing who could make it the fastest without any mistakes. Plus when you think about Sonic's first level in his first game, then you have to also include the loops and curves that compose the level as well, as they are things that slow Sonic down. And it is possible that Sonic was original 3' 3" tall, but he just grew a little as the years went by. I mean, he eye and fur color changed, so it wouldn't be a shocker. All and all, good video.
Great video, really :)
I loved it. I would never have thought of doing the actual research myself. I find it hard to discredit anything you said because you showed your work and put it all simply.
The conclusion I draw from this is; The character is meant to be able to run at the speed of sound. Him not running at that speed does in fact not discredit that for simple reasons. The original build of Sonic the Hedgehog 1991 actually moved at double, if not triple the speed of the final product. It was simply slowed down to make the game playable. In fact, the Japanese release stayed at that speed while the EU and US releases were slowed down. But I think eventually they slowed the JP one down to appeal to a bigger crowd. Although the light speed shoes give you an ability called the "Light speed dash", I don't remember any in-game-description claiming they allow Sonic to move at the speed of light.
Like you said. Don't believe everything you are told. And I believe that just because Sonic doesn't move at the speed of sound in the games, doesn't mean he is unable to. HE simply doesn't do it. For all we know what he is preforming in the games is a leisurely stroll :P
really, sonic top speed is 10X the speed of light, that was in his normal state, super sonic increases his speed by 500000X and then he has hyper which increases his speed 10000000000000000000X then he has ultra form which make his speed 50000000000000000000000000000000000X faster, mario is so slow compared to sonic in there first game's it was embarrassing
Comparing Mario running in a short straight line to Sonic running an entire level with loops and drops is biased. Using modern Sonic's height in a classic Sonic's game is fail. I noticed it also took 6 seconds for Mario to reach the first warp pipe, not 5. This guy is just a Nintendrone.
jajaja really-.- how can Dr. robotnik run more faster than a Bugati Beirone , and in new super mario bros, Bowser jr. travel the entire worlds before you -.-, iqual in Sonic . It make the game more longer -.-, =p
Over and Underthinking.
Dr robotnik is faster than sonic. In sonic 2 I put debug mode for super sonic then I chased him at full speed and he still out ran me
you know why it appears that sonic isnt moving at his top speed? Well you try and keep up with the movement of sonic if he was moving at his speeds.
So yeah theres your theory busted! Humans can't play games that there eyes can't keep up with.
I think you might be over thinking this one.
Do one for upcoming Goku vs Superman DEATHBATTLE! That would be so sick.
He can go though the sound barier in his fusion with shadow or on hyper sonic modes so ye calculate that
no, the ben and chad just took word of god from the two games and how they're portrayed to be.
