What's a chili dog without heaps of cheese, and onions, and spice with plenty of danger?


Sonic the Hedgehog, "Tails in Charge"

The chili dog is an object that appears in the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series. It is a popular food product consumed on Mobius, which is made and sold by several parties. It is perhaps best known as the favorite food of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Description

As the name suggests, the chili dog is a generic name for a hot dog served in a bun and topped with some sort of meat sauce and a spicy substance known as chili. Extra toppings can include onions and cheese.[1]

History

TV series

Chili dogs are a widespread food product that is served around all around Mobius, from the smallest local diners to the finest chefs in distant outposts.[2][3] Sonic the Hedgehog and Tails particularly enjoy chili dogs (the latter preferring his with extra cheese), having eaten almost nothing else during their travels. The city of Wienerville is especially known for making the best chili dogs on the planet.[4]

Chili dogs are also sold in a dehydrated, powder-like state. When water is added to this, it becomes a plate of chili dogs. Such chili dogs are made in an instant food factory which produce other foods in dehydrated powdered states.[5]

Trivia

  • The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series was the first Sonic-related media to establish Sonic the Hedgehog's fondness for chili dogs which would become something of a staple in Sonic's characterization in western territories. In the years since then, the chili dog has been established as Sonic's favorite food in just about every Sonic-related spin-off continuity, including the games themselves.
  • It has been hinted that a chili dog costs less than five Mobiums.[6] However, Sonic says that the price is too high in this case.
  • Dr. Robotnik revealed that he hates chili dogs after Sonic delivers him one with a hidden stick of dynamite that blows up in his face.[7]
  • In the Sonic Says segment of "Too Tall Tails", Sonic mentions that he likes eating chili dogs but he also likes eating healthy as well. Ironically, bread and meat are used in preparing chili dogs, but it is processed most of the time.
