the porcupine and fennec I get, but I'm guessing the mole is something like "echidnas are also burrowing animals," which doesn't feel quite as on-the-nose

as to the quill discussion, they are at least notably thinner and more numerous than Sonic's


Maybe it's a mythology gag to the fact that in Sonic the Movie Knuckles is mistakenly labeled as a mole.

Sonar looks the best to me out of the three. Strikes just the right balance. Seems to be easier to make unique females since you have clothing options.

Trevor looks nice ... but should have been a different color. This'll be our fifth big purple guy -- and the fourth that showed since the reboot.

I get that Spike is supposed to be Original the Character but hah. Also loses the cheek fur in the last panel.

Amusing. The porcupine guy looks almost identical to the first Sonic Fan character I drew when I was in my teens.

Interesting bunch - I didn't get why the mole guy was there at first - but yeah, I guess he's meant to be like an analogue of Knuckles? I'm not sure that one works too well.

I realized looking at the mole guy that he is a shout out to Kamina and Boota from Gurren Lagann. For one thing thing he is a mole that wears glasses that look like Kamina's.

Oh, and Sonar's gender might refer to how Tails is/was mistaken for female a lot?

And okay, we've got establishment of the new Freedom Fighter arrangement; there's only one actual group that is recognised as the Freedom Fighters (as opposed to there being a whole network of Freedom Fighter teams), and these guys just use that title because they're huge fans, nice to know.

It's not just the purple, he shares the green accenting and even the colour of his flesh bits with Thrash. But then, he's the one guy who hasn't shown up post-reboot.

Tails was mistaken for a girl a lot? Huh.

Actually, when Sonic 3 first came out a lot of my friends used to think Knuckles was a girl - just because he was pink (I'd actually say he's magenta myself, also I always knew he was a guy).

Hmm, how did that not get caught? Ah, that's embarrassing.

Thought I read that Knuckles was originally supposed to be a mole... which fits his look more, really.

No, he was originally supposed to be a dinosaur. The mole connection is that in japanese, "echidna" is "harimogura", which literally means "needle mole" (in the same way a hedgehog is "needle mouse", and "Mr. Needlemouse" is actually likely a mistranslation where Ohshima just meant Mr. Hedgehog). This is likely the reason for the mole mistranslation on the OVA, and the mole manneirisms.

Knuckles was a dinosaur in his very early concepts, not heard him ever being planned to be a mole.

The issue comes from the fact that Echidna in Japanese translates to something like needle mole, like how the word for Hedgehog translates to needle mouse. The difference is that Echidnas are far more obscure, so the profile writers ended up making that mistake when writing up.

Aaaand beaten to it. Hey, a phone isn't an ideal typing medium!
