Sonic the Hedgehog is a popular series of video games by SEGA, created in 1991 and starring a blue hedgehog called Sonic embroiled in constant battles against his nemesis/rival, Ivo Robotnik (aka Eggman). There have also been several spin-off cartoons and comics. Sonic is heavily popular in the furry fandom, although his sidekick, Tails the two-tailed fox, is often more popular than Sonic himself. Other anthropomorphic characters from the games and associated media, like Sally Acorn, Bunnie Rabbot , Antoine D'Coolette, Rotor J. Walrus, Dulcy the dragon, Princess Lupe Wolf, Rouge, Cream, Shadow, Silver and many others, also tend to attract attention.

Yerf famously instituted a ban on all Sonic-inspired artwork after the archive was flooded with low-quality artwork related to the game.

Sonic the Hedgehog and Furry[edit]

Sonic, arguably one of the most popular game series in the furry fandom, is one of those series that is controversial due to furries. Some fans hate furries, some furries hate Sonic, some people became furries due to Sonic, while some furries were drawn to Sonic for its characters. Nevertheless, the furry presence is strong in the fandom. This especially common with fans of Archie Comics' Sonic the Hedgehog, who tended to combine many different art styles of furry animals before the reboot. Sonic, Tails, Amy, Shadow, Silver, Rouge, Cream, and Vanilla are amongst the most popular with furries, though most of the Loads and Loads of Characters have some level of furry fanbase.
