The chili dog is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog film series produced by Paramount Pictures and its spin-offs. It is an accessorized hot dog consumed on Earth.


As the name suggests, the chili dog is a hot dog served in a bun and topped with chili. It is occasionally complimented with additional toppings, such as mustard, cheese, spices and onions.

  • Sonic the Hedgehog's fondness for chili dogs is something that originates in western territories, first established in the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series. Even before that, the earliest canon reference to Sonic's enjoyment of hot dogs, rather than the more specific chili dogs, was in Sonic the Comic #5, where Sonic is having three hundred hot dogs as a part of his breakfast. In the years since, the chili dog has been established as Sonic's favorite food in just about every Sonic-related media, eventually making its way into the games' canon as well.
