The list author says: "This series follows the adventures of Sonic, Tails and the Freedom Fighters, rebels dedicated to freeing their land from the tyranny of Robotnik. The series starts light and humorous, gradually becoming darker and more involved. Though the games are usually tied in, this concentrates more on less known characters Princess Sally Acorn- exiled princess and Sonic's love interest; Rotor, a walrus inventor; Antoine D'Coolette, a bumbling former member of the Royal Guard; Bunnie Rabbot, half robot with super strength; and of course, Sonic and Tails. The comic book recently released its 200th issue, though the various specials, miniseries, and spin-off series did not count toward that number."
"This fantastic cartoon series fleshed out the Sonic universe by adding characters that complemented mainstays Sonic, Tails, and Robotnik, and provided much needed backstory. The adventure was joined, and later succeeded by the comic book series. Both seasons, and all 26 episodes."
"These issues show the various Freedom Fighters meeting up (usually by Sonic saving them), which was later changed in the series by having them all be childhood friends. Also shown is when Robotnik first took over. Fun tidbit: Sally was originally blonde in these issues, which was an inside joke among the friends for some time. Issues 0-3 of the original miniseries. Also called Sonic Archives 0."
"The true beginning of the comic book series. The earlier issues were generally lighthearted, with Sonic and the gang foiling Robotnik's latest plot. Issue three features the arrival of Bunnie Rabbot. Also note Rotor was once called Boomer. Issues 1-4."
"Issue 13 introduces Knuckles the echidna, Sonic's sometimes friend and nemesis. The same issue adapts the events from the game Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Issue 16 begins the brief period in which Sonic and Sally keep getting "married". Issues 13-16."
"Issue 17 has the beginning of Sally's solo adventures that will continue through to #20 and her 3 issue miniseries. Issue 19 shows the reality of unlimited universes with a vengeance. The Super Special "In Your Face" (not included) takes place after #18. Issues 17-20"
"Issue 22 features a glimpse of Sonic and Sally's possible future, #23 foreshadows the relationship of Bunnie and Antoine (which won't show for some time), while #24 has the whole gang battling their alternate selves, and lightly touches upon the beginning of the quest to save Sally's father. The 3 issue Princes Sally miniseries (not included) takes place during these issues. Issues 21-24."
"Issue 25 introduces Amy Rose, and is an adaptation of the game Sonic CD. #28 continues Tail's solo adventures, begun in the Super Special "Triple Trouble" which will go on through #29, and into his three issue miniseries (also not included). "Sonic & Knuckles" takes place before #25; "Triple Trouble takes place after #27. Issues 25-28."
"Issue 29 introduces Dulcy the dragon, #30 features the return of Sonic's beloved Uncle Chuck, as well as the beginning of the Knuckles side stories, which run through to #37 and his own three issue miniseries (not included). Geoffrey from Sally's mini pops up in #31, as a rival to Sonic, and soon becomes a permanent fixture at Knothole. "Knuckles' Chaotix" takes place after #30. Issues 29-32."
"Issue 35 shows Sonic receiving his one billionth ring, a strong and magical item that will become important in the near future. #36 has the Freedom Fighters entering the dangerous Zone of Silence in order to attempt a rescue of King Acorn. "Super Sonic Vs Hyper Knuckles" takes place after #33. Issues 33-36."
"Issues 41 features a determined Sally setting out to (finally) rescue her dad. Following in issues 42-43 is a quest to cure the king by finding mystical artifacts, and a glimpse into the past that reveals exactly how Robotnik seized power in the first place. Issues 41-44."
"Counting down to issue 50, these begin with a revived King Acorn resuming power, and generally clashing with the younger Freedom Fighters. But when Sonic is found guilty for causing the death of his beloved Sally, he finds himself alone in clearing his name. Issues 45-48."
"Can it be true? Sonic's greatest nemesis defeated? It appears so, but that doesn't mean newer, more dangerous threats aren't looming on the horizon... and the Freedom Fighters discover that rebuilding a shattered world is not the easiest part of victory. Issues 49-52."
"Three Super Special issues: "Sonic In Your Face" which offers a tantalizing glimpse of a happy ending for the Freedom Fighters and the origins of Sally's computer Nicole; "Sonic & Knuckles" an adaptation of the game Sonic & Knuckles; and "Sonic Triple Trouble" an adaptation of the game Sonic Triple Trouble, with the introduction of the bounty hunter Nack. Also includes one story from "Sonic Live"."
"Three Super Special issues: "Knuckles' Chaotix" an adaptation of the game Knuckles' Chaotix and introducing Knuckles' friends; "Super Sonic VS. Hyper Knuckles" "Mecha Madness". Also includes the second story from "Sonic Live"."
"This pinball platformer is fun, but insanely difficuly. The reason this of all Sonic games is included on this list, is because Sally, Tails, Rotor, and Bunnie appear at the end of level one's bonus stage! This game is available on numerous platforms; the one listed here is for the Sega Genesis. Also look up videos for the SATAM Genesis game- a cancelled game based on the cartoon!"
