Decades later, even though Sega's consoles are no more, the company is still doing its best to keep Sonic alive in the world of video games. Sonic also has a high potential for performing various and fast movements. So far, Sonic has been moving so fast and fast that he has become a fun and popular character in the world of video games and even beyond. Speed in the Sonic series was an element that Sega used to market the game and maximize the sales of its consoles in the 1990s. Sega, in an effort to overtake the gaming industry of the time and compete with Nintendo, created the popular Sonic character and succeeded in doing so, so that Sonic is still one of the best and most interesting characters in the world of video games.

10. Transform from one form to another with the help of aliens (Wisps)
Sonic Colors Released in 2010 for the Nintendo DS and Nintendo V consoles. At a time when Sega was no longer offering a console for the video game industry, its only activity was making games. Sonic Colors was in fact Sega's attempt to present an innovative game to compete with its contemporaries' 3D games. In addition to the usual moves, Sonic Colors provided a mechanism for the game's blue hedgehog, Sonic, to transform into another creature for a moment with the help of in-game items. These items, or aliens with different colors, gave Sonic different abilities and were called wisp. The Vespas added capabilities to the Sonic movement, including turning into an orange rocket that launches at breakneck speed and even destroys obstacles passing through them. Or by turning into a yellow drill, it allows Sonic to penetrate the ground and reach inaccessible places. The Nintendo Sonic Colors version had other exclusive features as well.

Vespa gives Sonic a wide range of capabilities to interact with the game world, making it a much more enjoyable experience for the player.
9. Escape from Danger
Although Sonic was a popular character in the game at breakneck speed, Sega Do not refrain from the idea that various dangers can be placed in the shadow of this character in pursuit of the shadow. Thus, moments were created when dangerous items and creatures approached Sonic in interesting ways, jeopardizing his high-speed mission. The presence of these dangers during the game gave it more excitement and brought more entertaining gameplay for the audience.
The game designers did their best to create moments of more excitement and get closer to all kinds of possible dangers. They were sonic. Meeting Sonic with these dangers and overcoming them started as fast as possible from the very first Sonic game in this series. Where in the second stage, called the Marble Zone, we see Sonic, who must overcome the lava and save himself from the danger of melting in this molten material. This was also the case in Sonic 3 and in the first phase. Or, for example, in the game "Sonic Adventure", in the first stage, called the Emerald Coast, Sonic is trying to overtake a wall that does not stop chasing, and the stairs behind Sonic or the decks while escaping by this Walls are broken. Another good example of this type of Sonic movement is in Sonic Adventure 2, when the truck starts chasing Sonic with great speed and power. Leaving this truck behind and escaping from the danger of being overtaken by it is accompanied by double excitement for each player. The arrival of the blue hedgehog in escape from adversity is the game camera that does not let you know where you are going until the last moment. This factor, along with the dangers that follow you, is a unique feature of Sonic games in the video game world that keeps every player entertained for hours.

Sonic in the world of video games helps to show the fighting power
of this popular character. Like many other fighting games of the

However, the high-speed Sonic not only ran smoothly on these walls, but could even maneuver down a lot.
This stressful run was first seen in the Sonic Adventure; The moment when the player in the role of Sonic escapes from the top of a tall building while robots are chasing him.

In this anime, a number of main characters could become "super-ups" and thus gain multiple and even supernatural powers. Of course, becoming a supersonic is not that simple. The player must collect all the items called Chaos Emerald in the game to be able to activate this feature. This item found its way into other games, and in many cases, such as the final stages of Sonic Adventure 2, integrates well with the gameplay and story of the game.
