Gameroween – Video Game Characters that make good costumes (Day 9)

 

Sonic the Hedgehog; the world’s fastest teen-aged, blue, mammal was all the rage in the 90’s. In fact he and Mario started the first ever console wars where their games would always tried to 1-up each other. These days they’ve buried the hatchet and go in to more friendly competition games (SSB:B, not so much). One of the things their games both had in common was colorful characters and while Mario had Yoshi Sonic had Knuckles – and he wins. While not as fast as the ringed one he could bust through multiple stone walls without slowing down. Also Sonic needs Tails to fly, but the K-man can glide from one point to another with no sweat and what he can’t glide towards he can climb up using his massive fists. Finally when he started he was working with Dr. Robotnik, so he would be the series’ first antihero – he can certainly beat down that emo Shadow like he stole something. What I’m trying to say is that he’s not only a good costume choice but he deserves to be in the next smash bros game; I mean look at his hands, they were made to put Link in traction.
