The Bro-Down Showdown stage.

The Bro-Down Showdown is a program that appears in the Sonic Boom series. It is a game show hosted on Seaside Island where pairs of best friends compete to test how well they know their partner.

Bro-Down Showdown is a live television quiz show where pairs of friends (referred to in-show as "bros") compete against each other to show how much they know about each other. The winners will receive a narratively convenient price.[1]

The show can be held in varying locations. The show has Comedy Chimp as the host and off-screen judges. Before each show, the staff questions each participant in private to gather facts to use for the competition.[1]


Four pair of friends can participate. During the show, the host asks one from each pair a question about their partner which they must answer. If the contestant answers correctly, the pair earns ten points. Different answers to questions are also deemed correct if they are considered the same as the actual answer (e.g. Lady Walrus answered correct by saying that Dave worked in the fast food industry even though Dave claimed to a villain, as being evil is the same as working in fast food).[2] The pair with the least points at the end of a round get eliminated (or "bro-liminated). This continues until a winner is found.[1]

The show follows the "bro code," meaning that if a pair starts fighting with each other, directly or indirectly, they are instantly disqualified.[1]


TV series

Season one

When the Bro-Down Showdown was held in the Village Center, with the prize being a new couch, several people met up at the audition. In the end, four pair proved suitable: Sonic the Hedgehog and Dr. Eggman, Knuckles the Echidna and Mike the Ox, the Stunt Bears, and Dave the Intern and Lady Walrus. Sonic and Knuckles in particular wanted the couch to replace Amy's.[1]

After the first round of the show, the Stunt Bears and Knuckles and Mike got eliminated. Amidst the show though, Obliterator Bot attacked the Village. However, if Sonic fought it, he would be disqualified for fighting his partner, which Eggman had planned all along to keep Sonic at bay. When Sonic still chose to fight though, Dave and Lady Walus won by default, though they quickly stained their prize.[1]
