With my recent Sonic obsession and character creation, I figured why not make a bonus chapter just about Sonic characters? Because let's face it, it's really easy to mess them up.
Remember, when I say "avoid," it doesn't mean "don't ever do," it just means try not to do it. That doesn't mean someone can pull it off well though.
