Sonic Underground Remix Chapter 8Chapter 8: Holding out for a HeroSonic Underground Remix Chapter 8 by ~sonIghtsca
The sky roared venomously as the dark clouds shot out hard strikes of lightning towards the unsuspecting ground below. None sensible in the city of Harrion ventured out of the safety of their homes, fearful that karma would strike each and every one of them. Those who were a little bit braver or don’t have a shelter to speak of huddled together near the buildings for protection against the raging sky. The wind raced through the empty streets. Only the sound of whirring automatons moving towards their destination broke the constant pattern of the vengeful weather.
Robots, each with a different bug shape and design, rolled through the dirty streets to search for the missing treasures of the unofficial Queen Aleena. A set of beetle-like robots rolled on their mono-wheel as they searched each and every corner. Sniper modeled robotic bees buzzed overhead, checking the rooftops as well as the areas around where the beetle-bots couldn’t reach.

This may not seem as a shock to those that follow me, but I love Sonic Underground. This show is the best show out of all the Sonic shows, including the Sonic games themselves. Do you guys wish to know why I think this?
Because out of all the shows and video games, this is the show with the best characterization of Sonic the Hedgehog. And guess what? Sonic's characterization in Underground develops the most.
Now, before you guys line up to throw insults after insults on me about why this show sucks, have any of you guys even bothered to watch more than a few episodes without muting everything in the show? No? Well then, shut your traps because I'm going to tell you guys something that none of you have ever considered while watching this.
Sonic at the start of the series was like his SatAM incantation: He was stupid, he was rash, he believed that he could handle things without anyone else's help. Then suddenly in the second episode; he get's clawed by a beast within the test Sonic and his siblings were taking. As soon as they failed that test, guess what the blue hedgehog realized?
"I acted rash, so I got all of us killed." (paraphrased so you guys realize this point)
That's something you don't see in either the Modern game Sonic or the SatAm Sonic; This blue hedgehog realized that he himself needs to change. That if Sonic hadn't acted as quickly as he did, then both he and his siblings would have passed the test. Because that test was knowing when to pick your battles, and knowing when to run away from them. Manic had the right idea from the start: the triplets had to get out of the cage they were in, because the beast they were with can grasp objects. I really don't care if you guys think that was a flimsy way of making Manic seem more important, and I can understand why you guys think so, but I still think you are missing the point of the character development and how the writers made it work for this series.
As the series does on, Sonic continues to blabber on about how his siblings are "too slow" and how they should "pick up the pace" and why Sonic should justify going on his own. It isn't until the 11th episode 'Sonic Tonic" (a recycled plot point from AoStH) that Manic and Sonia end up making him realize how much of a jerk he's been to them. After that episode, he stops being the bully. No, you've read that right. Sonic stops with the slow-mo insults because he does care. That's much more than SatAM Sonic has ever accomplished in the whole two seasons.
Oh, and THEN the episode about Sonic's hydrophobia. That blue hedgehog goes around the entire episode avoiding the water because he has nightmares about the substance, and tries to hide it from his siblings that he has a weakness. As soon as that episode ends, he admits to Sonia and Manic that he's scared of being in or near water. When the episode of Speedster Isle is on, and the hedgehogs are planning on going to the island because they're mother told them to go there via coconut, guess what Sonic does when he realises they need to travel over the ocean. He shows weakness by fainting. And you know he fainted because the next scene is him waking up to find that he's in the van the triplets travel in, and Manic is the one to tell him that they're actually traveling over the water. That my friends, is how you show character development and also how you show character development.
Underground Sonic will always be best Sonic, even if the show is presented poorly.
