In Defense of Sonic OCs by Spikytastic In Defense of Sonic OCs by Spikytastic
Read this, I know this subject is inexplicably sensitive.
I'm also thinking that giving them 0.1% may be a bit generous...

I know first-hand-- when Sonic OCs are bad, they're BAD. Laughably, mockably, DeviantArtSnark-worthy bad. You've got your green sonics and your "sexy" things and your big musclebound monstrosities and your "What does this have to do with Sonic besides the spikes and eye style?" characters, and your mary sues out the fucking wazoo. And that's not even touching the fetishists...
When Sonic OCs are bad, they're undoubtedly some of the worst OCs out there, and a lot, a LOT, of people with Sonic OCs seem to have the art skills of five-year-olds.

But there are a handful of well-thought-out, well-designed Sonic OCs that don't break canon too badly. I swear. While the vast, vast, VAST majority are laughable, a character doesn't suck just on the basis of being a Sonic OC... though it probably does.
I don't think my own OC (Mako) qualifies, but I have had people who hate Sonic OCs say they like him. They're not ALL badly-designed MS paint sonic recolours, I swear!

Im not really in the sonic universe but I might make an OC for the hell of it, a persona, but nothing that has to do with any of the characters. Why a persona, because it can make a setting that has different abilities than the real world, expanding and playing on what is allowed in it. I like to use a similar approach to what MArk Twain used for Tom Sawyer. Tom is Mark as a boy, but in a different universe, so to say. He also plays with imagination to make the plot points more appealing. For the creature, Im making her a hybrid between a crow and a turkey, A Curkey. Still in development but I just want to make a good Oc.

Most of the female Sonic OCs I've seen had tragic back stories, both parents are dead, is a vampire, has huge tits, is paired with Shadow, is gothic/emo/scene/2edgy4u <'D
Fuck originality!

I know of a truly good Sonic OC.
She's this vampire cat named Martyna.

'Mary sue' isn't a damn term to use for something you don't like just saying. I've seen a shit load of good Sonic OCs though.

I don't pair my character up with canon characters I give him flaws and weaknesses. At least I don't change his personality every 5 seconds *cough AkaiDahlia Cough* Buts seriously pretty much all Sonic Fan characters get treated like shit Because of Mary sues like this monstrosity…

Hey guys, I have a super-special-amazing green Sonic! He has manly scars and gool clothes and motherfucking sunglasses, bitch! And he's so awesome that he can beat up Sonic and Shadow at the same time, and he totally gets all the ladies and can conquer planets without trying. And he's so amazingly amazing that Sonic's girlfriend is totally going to cheat on him with green Sonic and turn evil for him! Donut steal! Oh wait, Archie already did that! These crappy FCs have gotten so commonplace that one showed up in canon material.
