Sonic characters in the next SSB games (7/19-7/26)

Post by Lugia2453 on Fri Jul 19, 2013 3:18 pm

The new poll for this week is here, and this time around, I'm asking which Sonic character you'd like to see in the next Super Smash Bros. games in addition to Sonic if Sonic returned the most. My preference is for Knuckles, but what about you?

Ehhhhr... I don't really think the Sonic series would deserve another character and I don't have a lot of knowledge about the series. But if I had to choose I'd say Tails.

IF they did bring Sonic back and they SOMEHOW decided to include someone else, I'd like to see Knuckles. I think he'd have some decent potential as a playable character. Tails would make a good assist trophy.

Tails of course, not that I think there will be more Sonic characters in.

I would like to see knuckles. Although, if Nintendo did bring the Sonic franchise back into Smash, Eggman might have a better chance of being included. I kind of notice a balance of protagonists and antagonists in the roster.

Knuckles, of course.  He's my favorite character in the Sonic series.

Eggman has about as much a chance of being included as he does being called Robotnik like he's supposed to be.

 No. His name was always Eggman from the start in the Japanese version. It was only changed to Robotnik here because it happened during an internet-less time where Sega of America thought it would be good to have two different "canons" like the whole dumb Mobius thing. They started to fix that when Adventure 1 and 2 came about.

I can see why people want Knuckes to be in, but he hasn't had a major role in a major Sonic in a really long time.

Welp, I learned something today. I'm still not gonna call him Eggman, though, because that's an even more retarded name than Robotnik. Seriously, that sounds like a rejected Mega Man robot master or something.

Eggman name wars!  I wanna join!

It's pretty simple, really.  According to the official cannon, he has always been named Dr. Ivo Robotnik, and he even introduces himself in Adventure 1 as Dr. Robotnik.  However, Sonic and co. start calling him Eggman as an insult (referring to his egg shaped body), and when Adventure 2 rolls around, he just calls himself Dr. Eggman, possibly just to spite Sonic.  His name is still Robotnik, though.  So if he's referred to as Robotnik in a game, I'll call him Robotnik.  If he's referred to as Eggman, I'll call him Eggman.  You guys can call him whatever you want, because both names are still applicable.

By "official canon" you mean the American one that was never truly canon in the first place? He's gone by Eggman since the beginning. The Japanese canon is the official one which the English games later implemented.


Sonic the Hedgehog 2 - Wing Fortress

EDIT: http://legendsoflocalization.com/how-dr-robotnik-turns-into-dr-eggman/

Found that.

So then to appease all, Yuji Naka made it so it's Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik. Although no one in the universe calls him Robotnik at all. Even Eggman went by Eggman himself as the Japanese manual of Sonic 1 called him "Dr. Eggman" While the English one called him "Dr. Robotnik." Don't forget that in Sonic Adventure 1, the password to open up the Egg Carrier Chao Garden is to spell out EGGMAN in the lights. In Sonic Generations, they reference this.



So yes they are technically interchangeable but no ones uses that name anymore in the universe.
