Having the reboot focus on the Eggman Armies without giving us the proper time to enjoy cyborg Bunnie, who use to be a special one of a kind character with her half Roboticized body. Really drives home how unimpressive she is now.


You mean how she was the only cyborg for 16 issues?
And how she wasn't even in about half of those issues?
And how she was so incidental both the Anti and Prehistoric Freedom Fighters skipped over her?
And how she got more-than-background-fluff status in only four stories in that period, with one being her character intro and another being that terrible "grrrl power" story where she was interchangeable with Sally?

You mean that period of time where we got to enjoy Bunnie as the only cyborg?

Even putting that aside, Bunnie's been more relevant than Antoine for over a decade. She's had more substantial stories separated from him than he has from her. They've both been surprisingly underutilized since the reboot, but it looks like they're trying to give a touch more focus to Antoine before giving attention to his more popular significant other. She's getting a story with Sally soon too.

As much as I agree Bunnie's never done much with being the only cyborg, it'd be a really big stretch to say she's been more relevant than Antoine. Antoine's had a load of issues either dedicated to solely him or using Bunnie to progress his arc, but Thicker Than Water was the first big Bunnie story since she got her upgraded bionics, and there wasn't really much worth talking about before that either. Even your own post is showing off how much she was ignored.

I'd like to see Blaze and Rouge interact. I've actually been sorta brainstorming (a fanfic I'll never actually write) ideas of like, Rouge, Blaze, and Bunnie running into each other in Breezie's casino and doing hijinks

People have this strangely skewed memory of the comics that I don't really get. Maybe it's SatAM memories and online rambling bleeding in?

Both characters were ignored for extensive periods of time (Antoine was GONE for 30 issues once!), but overall Bunnie has had a more significant presence since Endgame. She's had just as many stories focused on her as Antoine, if not more (really, go count it out), but she's also had more stories that aren't reliant on her spouse. The only time things were skewed towards Antoine were the first three years of the book, and even during that period he was less relevant than the rest of the core cast.

I could be far more thorough about this, but I don't have the time at the moment. Maybe later.

I never really watched SataM much. I've only seen a couple of episodes. I'm going off the comics, especially in the modern run. They've both been ignored, but Antoine's father has died (and had a couple stories about him even when he was alive), he's died, he had to deal with his alternate self more than anybody but Sonic (Bunnie meanwhile never even met hers), he had his grudge against Geoffrey, he had his rivalry with Sonic. He's played smaller roles a lot, and usually more often than Bunnie. There are some stories that feature Bunnie, for sure, but almost all of them also feature Antoine. Otherwise her big roles are being Sally's friend (when Sonic's not around and Sally wasn't in her long, long isolated phase) or just... being around. Her big stories are replacing her bionics, fighting Rouge, meeting Beauregard, fighting Mecha Sonic, being controlled by the Iron Queen I guess, being nearly being absorbed by nanites... and breaking up with Antoine. It sure isn't much for 250+ issues as a main character.

And even now one of the above roles is gone since Nicole's basically taken over the role of Sally's best friend.

I'm aware some people don't agree with me on this, but I think Tails would really benefit from having a mechanically-inclined rival to test/challenge him. I think the franchise character best equipped to do this is Wave - even though she's supposedly more focused on being an 'Extreme Gear' expert and not an all round mechanic (I really don't get this - if you're knowledgeable in one field of engineering there's obviously going to be a carry-over of knowledge/expertise into other fields).

Tails and Wave being forced to work together would be an interesting hostile team-up - though I don't know if it's possible to split up the Rogues for the purposes of telling a story. I suppose Jet and Storm could be stuck dealing with their own problems during the same story.

Omega and Fixit are an interesting duo. I'm not sure how often they will get paired up though. It would be interesting to see Metal Sonic, Omega and Fixit brought together in one story - maybe in a situation where only mechanoids can save the day? Perhaps radiation could make it impossible for Sonic and the others to intervene?

Blaze and Razor strike me as an interesting combination - Fire and Water meeting head on and being forced to come to terms with one another. I'd like to see Echo the Dolphin more involved too.

That's all that comes to mind right now.

I agree, but I'd honestly rather see him go toe-to-toe with Eggman where the entire arc is just them outwitting each other. Like a Holmes/Moriarty type dynamic.

I suppose he does have Eggman to challenge him, but Eggman hardly ever comes face-to-face with Sonic and co. anymore. To me Eggman seems kind of out of reach for that kind of hostile rivalry/relationship, whereas Wave and Tails would seem more likely to bump into each other on a fairly regular basis - like at engineering fairs and stuff.

It seems to me that Eggman's really too busy organising things behind his desk to do anything like face-off against Tails directly, I think that kind of thing is beneath Eggman. He'd rather get some mecha to go and beat Tails around the head a few times - at least that's the feeling I get from Eggman's portrayal in the Archie comics.

When was that? Unless you mean when he was replaced by Patch...

I second this, though I would wish Shadow to be mixed into this some way. I know that might be overkill but I don't know? XD

I'm just really big on seeing Shadow's interaction with the other robot characters and wish for an excuse to see this more often. I've always felt Shadow could relate to them a lot better. The stories usually focus on Shadow needing to be more open and relate to being organic instead of just being who he is. I just want this other side explored more and to be more middle ground.

Sorry if I'm rambling. I get really worked up with the Shadow and his robot friends idea. I still like the idea of all the robots going out on a mission though. Just wishful thinking with Shadow I guess.

Sonic & Breezie: I wanna know more about their history. Surley there's more than what's know from the Champions arc, right?

Rouge & Relic: I think Rouge would sometimes tease Relic about her being around Knuckles almost 24/7, & Relic would just blush and deny it.

Silver & Vector: I don't know why, but for some reason, I would want Vector to try and be that friend that gets into trouble, & Silver would always have to bail him out(much to Espio's pleasure, so he can get a break from Vector's craziness :(hearty laughter): ).

Amy & Sally: I just wanna see these two talk about embarassing things about Sonic, just laughing about how much of a dork he is.

Rotor & Wave: Two brilliant purple geniuses inflating their egos, & forming a huge rivalry.

- I like to see Bunnie interact with Rotor, and Cream the Rabbit more, I like to see her hang out with Cream and go trough some missions with Rotor

- I love to see Sally interact more with Amy Rose, maybe let Sally train Amy or both of them bonding. I wouldn't mind seeing Sally interact with Shadow or Relic either.

- I like to see Shadow interact more with characters like Tails Cream and Sally.

I'd like to see some rivalry between the 3 speedster Blaze, Sonic and Shadow just for kicks while helping out whatever situation they're in.

I never took Rotor as the egocentric type.
