Sonic the Hedgehog (ソニック・ザ・ヘッジホッグ Sonikku za Hejjihoggu?), trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is a title character and the protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega, as well as in numerous spin-off comics, 4 animated shows and an animated OVA. The first game was released on June 23, 1991, to provide Sega with a mascot to rival Nintendo's flagship character Mario (see 1991 in video gaming). Since then, Sonic has become one of the world's best-known video game characters, with his series having sold more than 80 million copies. In 2005, Sonic was one of the first game character inductees into the Walk of Game, alongside Mario and Link.
While many individuals at Sega had a hand in Sonic's creation, programmer Yuji Naka and artist Naoto Ōshima are generally credited with the creation of the character, a blue 15-year-old anthropomorphic hedgehog, who has the ability to run at supersonic speeds and the ability to curl into a ball, primarily to attack enemies. This is a major part of the gameplay of the series.
Appearance: Crazy Rap Battles 1
Opponent: Super Mario
I don't need your help, I can run faster than lightning,
The way your rhymes suck is awfully frightening.
I've got millions of fans wanting to be like me,
I'm the blue Usain Bolt, running wild and free.
Where's Peach gone? Oh, I've got her right here,
She said you and Luigi were lonely, homey queers.
So get back on your Yoshi and ride back to Italy,
Oh, and order me a pizza, I'll buy it for free!
You stalker, you pervert, that sounded too personal,
I recorded all those threats in my little journal.
Cos I'm mature, not a whore, I go with the law,
I don't slice through apples until I'm right up to the core.
Jumping on mushrooms, now that's really low,
And going in stores containing toads with bows.
Unreal, bad peel, I don't need no wheels,
Cos I'm the best hedgehog in this world who has a good taste and feel!
