There are nearly 100 Sonic characters that show up at some point or other in Sonic games. How many do you know of them? How many of them are female Sonic characters?
Sonic the Hedgehog is a Japanese video game series and media franchise created and owned by Sega. The franchise follows Sonic, a hedgehog who battles the evil Doctor Eggman, a mad scientist.
Sega developed the first Sonic game and released it in 1991 for the Sega Genesis. The idea was to compete with the Super Mario Bros games developed by Nintendo. The success of Sonic helped Sega become one of the leading video game companies during the early 1990s.
Sonic has also made the leap to the big screen. There are a couple of Sonic movies, as well as other products.
