Summary

Sonic the Hedgehog is a video game franchise created and owned by Sega. The franchise centers on a series of speed-based platform games, but several are spin-offs in different genres. The protagonist of the series is an anthropomorphic blue hedgehog named Sonic, whose peaceful life is often interrupted by the series's main antagonist, Doctor Eggman. Typically, Sonic—usually along with some of his friends, such as Tails, Amy, and Knuckles—must stop Eggman and foil any plans of world domination. The first game in the series, published in 1991, was conceived by Sega's Sonic Team division after Sega requested a mascot character; the title was a success and spawned sequels, and transformed Sega into a leading video game company during the 16-bit era in the early to mid-1990s.

The Sonic Universe has a very rich history. The main character is Sonic the Hedgehog and his usual adventure is stopping Doctor Eggman from taking over the world up to the universe. It also has a very, very large cast, with some characters getting more focus than others. Overall, Sonic is a popular universe.

In fact, the universe's history is very expandable to a point of having a rather spontaneous continuity. For this reason, we have divided the Sonic Universe timeline into multiple "eras".

Power of the Verse

The Sonicverse's power has a very wide range, ranging from Wall level for much of the fodder Badniks to Large Planet level for the Cast, with many of the Super forms and final bosses being at least Multi-Solar System level. In addition, it has several Universal+ to Low Multiversal threats in the forms of Alf-Layla-wa-Layla, Time Eater, Egg Salamander, the Egg Wizard with the Power of the Stars, and Solaris in game canon, who have great destructive powers and hax. Here are the explanations about the feats, powerscaling and stats of all the characters of the verse.

This verse also has many hax powers within it, such as Sonic and Shadow using an ability called Chaos Control which can be used to freeze time or teleport, every skilled Chaos Emerald user like Blaze being able to seal away opponents like Iblis, Emerl and Metal Sonic being able to copy an opponent's abilities, Time Eater being able to slow down or travel through time and Alf Layla wa-Layla and Darkspine Sonic are capable of reality warping with a wave of the hand. Color Powers (which most characters can use) can grant several abilities, such as intangibility, void manipulation, and absorption. The verse also has a powerful level of technology capable of Planet level to Multi-Solar System level busting destruction.

Many of the Gameverse's alternative continuities also vary widely in power, such as IDW Sonic and others being Multi-City Block level+, their Boom counterparts being Town level, their Fleetway incarnations being Island level with Large Planet level and Low Multiversal Super Forms, and so on.

Another popular alternative canon with its own separate page is the Archie Universe, which has vastly different stories, many characters not yet seen within the games, and is far above the Game Continuity in terms of both power and hax.

  • The Base Cast do scale to the Babylon Garden but its consider an Outlier

Notes

  • These calcs at the end of the day are for show. Dr. Eggman consistently tank explosions from his mechs that consistently withstand hits from Sonic till he breaks them. Withstanding the force of those explosions that would rip apart those mechs would make Dr. Eggman scale to Sonic in some way.
