Sonic the Hedgehog, the Fastest Thing Alive, is a major character in the series, being one of the main protagonists in Darkness and Light and Fire and Ice. Hailing from Earth, Sonic is a famous hero renowned for the countless times he has saved the planet and even beyond it from the forces of evil, especially his late arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman, and Mecha Sonic, his current arch-nemesis. He was also the leader of Team Sonic.
See article: Sonic
Sonic tends to be carefree and likes to joke around, even in serious situations. He also tends to go to places on his own, to his friends' annoyance. After losing to the Mechas and through the influence of Dark Sonic, Sonic has realized that Dr. Eggman can become more of a threat by possibly creating machines who are more powerful than the Mechas. This led to a decision, which is easily noticed by his friends, that Sonic wouldn't normally make: letting Dr. Eggman be killed by his own creations. Sonic later realizes that he was being corrupted by Dark Sonic and, after having been freed from his possession, returns to his original way of thinking.

New Beginnings Arc
Sonic is first seen with Mario at Final Destination. Mario askes him why they are there, Sonic tells him that the reason is so they can fight, seeing which one of them would actually win. They then start battling, but during the fight, they tap into reserves of energy they didn't know they had. The battle ends when both of them clash, unknowingly using the powers of Darkness and Light. A gray sphere then forms and surrounds them. Mario and Sonic then find themselves inside a gray dimension, where they are greeted by Master Hand (when he talked to them, Mario first fought Master Hand was a ghost) and Danix (he appeared after Mario insulted the director for making Episode 1 short). Master Hand then tells them the story of Darkness and Light, while Mario keeps interrupting him. It turns out that Darkness and Light are sealed inside Sonic and Mario, respectively. When they clashed, they accidently opened a portal that can suck up every single video game universe, with the only way to stop it is to use the Chaos Emeralds and Starman. Danix then tells them that they only have one week to find the Chaos Emeralds and Starman. To help them search for these objects, Danix uses Chaos Controlto transport Scornic, Cindy, Digikoopa, Frostxforest, Masterells, Jordan, and Sergio to their location. After briefly mingling (and noticing that Master Hand disappeared), the group decides to transport to another location, where they will separate and begin their search. They first stop at Bridge of Eldin (by accident) and Danix tells all the fan characters to pick who they want to go with while he tranports them to another location. They then transport to Yoshi's Island (Melee), with Mario being upset that all the fan characters wanted to go with Sonic. Sonic then tells the fan characters that some of them should go with Mario. After 5 seconds, all the fan characters are on Mario's side, angering Sonic. Another 5 seconds later, all the fan characters are gone, with Danix yelling that they are on their lunch break. Another five seconds later, all the fan characters are on Sonic's side (again), angering Mario again. Another 5 seconds later, the fan characters are still on Sonic's side, with Mario saying that he hates them all. Another 5 seconds later, Sergio, Cindy, Jordan, Frostxforest, and Masterell appear on Mario's side, while Danix, Scornic, and Digikoopa stay on Sonic's side. Danix then tells Mario's team that one of the Chaos Emeralds are near Battlefield and he teleports them to that location, with Mario not caring that he has more people than Sonic. Shortly fter, DX and Siro teleport to Sonic's team's location in order to join the team. They then teleport to the Kingdom Hearts dimension.

Fire/Ice Origins Arc
Sonic, Amy, Knuckles, and Rouge are in a clearing with rocks everywhere. Sonic had made a bet with Knuckles that Amy could destroy a rock by using her hammer. After the four have a conversation, Knuckles finds a big rock and throws it at Amy, who easily smashed it with her hammer. A Fire Shine then emerges from the rock, though the four have no idea what it is. They decide to take it to Tails to see if he knows what it is. At Tails's Lab, Tails finishes telling them that the "object" they found is not from their world. Cream suggests that the object came from Mario's world since the object has eyes. Sonic agrees to this, saying that the objects (which have eyes) in Mario's world were cool and disturbing at the same time. Since the group doesn't have a Chaos Emerald, they decide to find Silver and Blaze to ask them for their Chaos Emerald, only to find that Silver has lost the emerald somewhere. Shadow then appears, explaining that Rouge called him. After a brief argument, Shadow agrees to transport the group to Mario's world. At Mario's world, the group finds themselves on Yoshi's Island, which is miles away from the Mushroom Kingdom. They then hear Wario and Waluigi being chased by Mario and Luigi. After the Mario Bros sent Wario and Waluigi flying, Sonic appears behind Mario and compliments them on what they did to Wario and Waluigi. Mario askes Sonic why he's in the Mushroom Kingdom, to which Sonic replies by telling them that he'll explain everything when they get to Peach's Castle. At Peach's Castle, after Shadow teleports them there, the group discuss the origins of the "red and blue Shine Sprites." The Shines then disappear and Shadow quickly finds out who took the Shines. At the castle grounds, Mario, Sonic, Luigi, Shadow, Silver, and Knuckles find Metal Sonic and Shadow Android discussing their objective involving the Shines. The two villains disappear and Mario, Sonic, Shadow, and Knuckles chase them after telling Luigi and Silver to stay at the castle. The heroes catch up to the villains at Route 99, and the six of them battle. During the battle, Mario pulls out a Fire Flower, which turns him into Fire Mario and turns Sonic into Fire Sonic. With their enhanced abilities, Mario and Sonic beat Metal Sonic and Shadow Android. After the battle, Shadow and Knuckles reveal that they found the Shines after Mario and Sonic knocked them out of Metal and Shadow Android, who decide to retreat but swear to return for revenge. The four heroes then went back to castle, only to stop for chili dogs before they reach the castle grounds. During this time, Sonic apparantly takes Mario's chili dog, furiating Mario. When the four of them teleported to the castle grounds (where Daisy, Blaze, Luigi, Silver, Yoshi, and Tails were), Mario was yelling at Sonic. Later, when the whole group held a meeting in the conference room, Mario is still mad at Sonic, though Peach requested that he temporarily put it aside. After the group quickly discuss where the Shines might've come from, Darkness and Light appear before them. They told the story of the Frozen Sun, which explained the origins of the Fire and Ice Shines, and briefly talked about the Organization. Darkness and Light then went back inside Sonic and Mario, respectively. After discussing how they would find the Fire and Ice Shines, Mario brings up the chili dog problem, which Sonic is not looking forward to. Later, Mario and Sonic, along with Luigi and Shadow, go to the castle grounds to train, only to meet up with a small group of fan characters. In the castle, while Sadia and Dalia are talking with Peach, Amy, Rouge, Rosalina, Blaze, Daisy, and Cream, Mario and Sonic, along with Luigi and Knuckles, are having a conversation with Danix, Scornic, High Volts, Jerrell, and FIR.
Dream Land Arc
While Mario was sparring with Kirby, Sonic was taking Amy out for a run. After the date, Sonic teleports to the location where Mario, Kirby, Yoshi, and Tails were. After Sonic has a brief conversation with Kirby, Tails finds that a Fire Shine has appeared in Dream Land, according to the Fire Shine Tracker. The five of them decide to go to Dream Land to get the Fire Shine. Later, the five of them are flying through Dream Land, heading toward King Dedede's Castle. In King Dedede's arena, while Kirby is interrogating King Dedede, Mario and Sonic try to convince Kirby that King Dedede doesn't have the Fire Shine. Tails then tells the group that the Fire Shine had just left the castle. Meta Knight then appears and tells Kirby that an old enemy has reappeared. He then tells the group that he'll explain when they board the Halberd. On the Halberd, Mario, Sonic, Tails, and Yoshi are in the main quarters with Meta Knight. After explaining how the Halberd got damaged, Meta Knight tells them about Galacta Knight. Tails then uses the Fire Shine Tracker, only to find that the Fire Shine is heading towards them. Meta Knight then tells them to stay in the room while he, Kirby, and Dedede handle Galacta Knight. Wanting to help fight Galacta Knight, Sonic tries to convince Meta Knight to let him go with them, but Meta Knight initially refuses, saying that Galacta Knight is too dangerous and only a skilled swordsman can defeat him. Meta Knight then takes his leave after Mario wishes him good luck. On the Deck of the Halberd, after Kirby and King Dedede leave, Meta Knight and Galacta Knight clash, only to be interrupted by Sonic attacking Galacta Knight. Meta Knight then argues with Sonic, saying that it's too dangerous for Sonic to be there (though Sonic ignores this fact). After Galacta Knight challenges Sonic to a Knight's Duel (which Sonic happily accepts), Meta Knight relunctantly lets Sonic go through it, though he adds that he'll interfere if Galacta Knight tries to deliver the final blow. After Meta Knight leaves, Sonic and Galacta Knight have a brief conversation and then they clash. During their battle, Galacta Knight hits Sonic with a tornado attack, which leaves Sonic heavily damaged and Caliburn broken. Galacta Knight tries to convince Sonic that he can't continue fighting since his sword is broken. Sonic disagrees and, by using the power of Caliburn and the swords that belong to the Knights of the Round Table, transforms into Excalibur Sonic. The two then fight once more, only this time, Sonic was winning. They then collided one last time, resulting in a massive explosion. After the explosion clears, both of them are barely standing, with Sonic holding one of his arms and Galacta Knight using his lance to help him stand. Galacta Knight concludes that the match is a draw and decides to give Sonic the Fire Shine in exchange for Sonic telling him the significance of the Fire Shine. After Sonic gives him a brief explanation, Galacta Knight takes his leave, but not before he and Sonic agree to have a rematch after Sonic and the others save the universes. With that, Galacta Knight flies off the Halberd, leaving the Fire Shine in front of Sonic. Sonic then collapses from exhaustion and his injuries. Later, he is taken to the hospital in the Mushroom Kingdom to rest and get his injuries cared for.
Hunt for Akuma Arc
At Peach's Castle, Sonic and Tails get ready to leave for Dr. Eggman's space amusement park, where they plan on stopping him. They say their goodbyes to Mario, Luigi, and Amy and they then leave, promising that they will return later. Later, Sonic and Tails teleport to Peach's throne and talk about their adventure. Moments later, Shadow teleports next to them, telling everyone that he was spying in Eggman's headquarters on Earth and learned that Metal Sonic's rebellion is in 4 days. Shadow then tells Sonic that, as Eggman's arch enemy, he must decide what they should do about the rebellion. Sonic tells Shadow that he needs time to think about and Shadow quickly argues with him. Mario then tries to calm Shadow down by changing the subject.
