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!

If I make Sonic fan characters or OCs, I try to keep them out of the canon universe, so I can have some of my own rules. I do have hedgehogs, cats and other animals, but I also have totally different types of characters. For example, I have a Capricorn and a Scorpion. I give them uniqe backstories and try not to fall into very irritating clishes. I don't share my characters that often, because I'm afraid that people will take some of them as Sonic-clones. And yes, I do have a male hedgehog who is kind of like Sonic, but again, I have a backstory for him and a reason to be like that. But, I agree. The majority of the Sonic OCs suck and some of them a propably mine, but I try not to use those ;-)

I agree, some sonic OCs are just clones of the main characters in their creator's vision. But when a character is well thought out with creativity and imagination, that's when they're good.

I don't think I will EVER make a Sonic fan character. I'm very afraid mine would suck. Oh whatever...I haven't even done mine yet. I'm so freaking proud to be without a Sonic fan character. Don't even ask why, you rabid, feisty fans.

The Sonic fan base is a bit of a lost cause at this point and thats coming from someone who enjoys it very much. Someone should create a group or account geared to helping people make better fan characters/OCs and fixing bad ones.

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 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 akaidalia.deviantart.com/art/J…

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.

I remember I saw a sonic oc that was a girl version of sonic, the creator just added eyelashes and clothes and that's all. Probably that was the worst sonic oc I have ever seen since it looked gay and the creator claimed to be original and she also created a duck that was practically bean but she just changed his name and changed the colors. All the hedgehogs she created had Sonic's same hairstyle and she even made a classic, super, werehog versions for all her ocs. All here ocs were Mary Sues with 0% of creativity and originality.

I've just seen so many terrible Sonic OC's that it's gotten to the point to where whenever I see one, I automatically think that the creator is some loser teenager in middle school. Even if the art is good, I canny help but think that whoever made it must obviously have no life. Why else would they want to make some OC from a fandom with one of the worst reputations around? Because they can make their character have big boobs, be a slut, fall in love with canon characters, and be so overpowered that it's ungodly.

I've never once seen a "good" Sonic OC before. That's probably because so very few exist. Every time I see another "bat-werefox-sparkledog" female OC that is dating both Shadow and Sonic and all the other guys drool over them and all of the female characters are jealous.. well, I just really want to shove a drumstick up someone's ear.

Show me a good Sonic OC. Show me something that isn't an OP hybrid. Show me something that isn't balloon-boobed with skimpy clothing. Show me something that isn't rainbow hair and "emo" characteristics.

Show me that, and you will blow me away.

I think she needs some work yet as far as balancing goes, and info I intended to change (like some f her backstory), but I'd say she's close;

If not, these two haven't much thought into them at the moment, but they're meant to be fairly removed from the main cast, and are enemies of each other;

I know a lot of people with OCs that are original (to a certain extent) are well balanced and not as childish as all these recoloured mary sues that roam the internet.

Those characters are made by immature children who think they're the best and are so sexy and cool.

Original characters are made by mature people who actually HAVE A BRAIN.


(though with sonic Ocs its hard to be original. Don't diss!)

Luckily, all of my OC's are human. And no, don't worry. None of them are not a palette swap of that one kid from that Sonic X thing or wherever he came from.
