Most trophies ("figures" or "figurines" in Japan) in Super Smash Bros. Brawl can be obtained through Coin Launcher (labeled as random in how to unlock) or playing certain stages in The Subspace Emissary. Some trophies, particularly the enemies of The Subspace Emissary, can only be obtained by using a Trophy Stand ("Smash Plates" in the Japanese version) on a foe while its health is low. Other trophies, particularly those of playable characters and their Final Smashes, can be obtained by playing Classic Mode and All-Star Mode respectively. Trophies can also be obtained by completing several challenges. There are 544 trophies in all in Brawl, some which tend to be rarer than others. They can be used in the Trophy Hoard.
The following is a list of the trophies from the Sonic the Hedgehog series that appear in Brawl. There are 12 trophies in total.
|Name||How to Unlock||Picture||Description|
|Sonic||Clear Classic Mode as Sonic||The world's fastest hedgehog, who can run at supersonic speeds. Generally speaking, he loves being able to do what he wants and loathes being constrained. Holding still is something he would never consider. He's got a bit of an attitude but can't pass by someone in trouble. When he collects the seven Chaos Emeralds, he transforms into the mighty, gold Super Sonic.
|Super Sonic||Clear All-Star Mode as Sonic||Sonic's Final Smash. The Chaos Emeralds give energy to all living things, and Sonic's gathered all seven of them, then used their power to transform into Super Sonic. His abilities in this form far surpass his normal ones, and he's even able to fly. He uses a lot of energy in this form, so he can only remain in it for a short time.|
|Shadow||Random||Shadow The Hedgehog is a black hedgehog who resembles Sonic. He was created by Dr. Eggman's grandfather, Gerald Robotnik, to be the ultimate life-form. Not only does he look like Sonic, but he has equal abilities. He has great skill with the space-time warping technique called Chaos Control. To reach his goals, he'll use any means necessary.
|Tails||Exceed 30,000 ft. combined walking distance with all characters||A friendly fox with two tails whose true name is Miles Prower. He can fly for a limited time by spinning his tails rapidly. Originally impressed by the sight of the speedy Sonic, he became his sidekick, rarely leaving his side. To assist Sonic in staying one up on Dr. Eggman, he utilizes his knowledge of electrical engineering to create mechanical devices.|
|Dr. Eggman||Collect 500 Different Stickers||A self-proclaimed scientific genius. Dr. Eggman sports an IQ of 300 and wants to conquer the world and build his evil empire of Eggmanland. An expert in his field, he places robotics over all else in life—a reflection of his selfish personality. He doesn't know when to quit and always comes back for more no matter how many times he is defeated by Sonic.|
|Knuckles||Random||A powerful red echidna also known by his full name, Knuckles the Echidna. Knuckles resides on Angel Island, where he guards the Master Emerald. Both friend and rival of Sonic, he's a martial-arts expert who can break through rocks with his spiked fists. In addition, he can climb walls and use the wind to glide through the air.|
|Amy||Random||A Sonic-obsessed pink hedgehog whose full name is Amy Rose. Amy is Sonic's self-appointed girlfriend. She is almost always optimistic and cheerful, and while she motivates her friends, she also shows aggressive tendencies, like when she uses her massive Piko Piko Hammer. Speaking of which, her hammer's hiding spot remains unknown to this day.|
|Blaze||Random||A princess from another dimension and guardian of the Sol Emeralds, also known as Blaze The Cat. Blaze is calm but often seems to be dealing with some of her inner turmoil. She's also extremely hard on herself, and as a result, she comes across as somewhat shy. She learns to open up after meeting Sonic and his crew and can use the Sol Emeralds to become Burning Blaze.|
|Chao||Random||A type of creature that can absorb and learn skills and traits from other life-forms, adapting its shape as it does. This results in vast variations in appearance, behavior, and personality. Chao are generally very cute, and their mannerisms are pleasant and relaxing. Chao Gardens are a good place to find them, but they also inhabit areas with freshwater.
|Cream||Random||A young rabbit who is always accompanied by her Chao friend, Cheese. Once a member of Team Rose, she's a spirited go-getter who always gives it her all. Her polite and courteous manner is thought to be a result of her mother's strict discipline. She can use her large ears to fly, and her Chao Attack, where she launches Cheese like a missile, is a powerful weapon.|
|Jet||Random||A hawk who is the leader of the Babylon Rogues and also goes by the moniker "The Legendary Wind Master." When it comes to Extreme Gear racing, there is no one better. His extremely competitive and takes tremendous pride in winning, so you know things are going to be exciting when he takes on the speedy Sonic in an Extreme Gear battle.|
|Silver||Clear Target Smash Level 3 with All Characters||A hedgehog who traveled back in time to defeat the Iblis Trigger and therefore alter the future. Silver has a positive attitude and a strong sense of justice. He has his telekinetic powers that allow himself to control physical objects, including abilities to freeze or shock enemies, which he uses to fight for peace and justice.|
