This article is about Sonic the Hedgehog's appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For other uses, see Sonic the Hedgehog.

This speedy fighter has a lot of rush-type attacks. His Final Smash, Super Sonic, let's him fly around the stage at an incredible speed!
—Description from the Super Smash Blog.

Sonic the Hedgehog is a veteran fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, first playable in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. He was confirmed to return on June 12, 2018, during Nintendo Live at E3 2018. His design is based on his recent 3D appearances.

When unlocked, he is fought at Green Hill Zone.

AttributesEdit

StrengthsEdit

  • Excellent combo game, many tilt attacks, aerials, and even special attacks usually combo into other aerials.
  • Up Smash possesses a windbox that draws enemies closer.
  • Down aerial can meteor smash.
  • Up-Special does not put him into helpless fall, meaning that he can further combo out of recovering, which further increases his combo game. He can also vertically air-dodge to gain extra height.
  • The spring from Spring Jump actually has a hitbox, which makes it useful for gimping opponents trying to recover. Furthermore, it does not count as a projectile, meaning it can be neither pocketed nor reflected.
  • Fastest dash speed in the game.
  • Can wall jump.

WeaknessesEdit

  • Incredibly lightweight, making him easy to K.O. before 100%.
  • Heavy reliance on combos, requiring them to rack up damage.
  • Few reliable kill moves, with his specials, again, there to increase enemy damage.
  • Fast dash speed makes him hard to control at times, and makes combos easy to mess up.
  • His Final Smash, Super Sonic, is rather easy to avoid and can easily be air-dodged through.
