Early life

The majority of Cream's past is unknown. Growing up, Cream was raised by her mother, Vanilla, and was brought up like a princess under her mother's kind, but strict discipline.[1][3][4][5] This parenting is what gave Cream her polite manners, but also her childishness. At some point, she met Cheese and the two of them became inseparable friends, with Cream taking Cheese with her wherever she would go.[6]

Sonic Advance series

Sonic Advance 2

In Sonic Advance 2, Cream and Cheese were kidnapped by Dr. Eggman along with her mother when Eggman attempted to build the Eggman Empire. While Cream and Cheese were detained by the doctor, however, Sonic the Hedgehog showed up and freed them. Recognizing Sonic as the world-famous hero, Cream thanked Sonic for his help before he ran off to save his friends and stop Eggman. However, Cream wanted to save her mother from Eggman's clutches, so she and Cheese joined Sonic in his mission.

Cream being reunited with her mother.

Joined by Tails and Knuckles along the way, Cream and her friends seemingly defeated Eggman. Shortly after, they found Vanilla, only for Cream to have her mother kidnapped in front of her by Eggman in a new mech. Heartbroken, Cream cried at the loss of her mother, but Sonic used the Chaos Emeralds to become Super Sonic and promised Cream to save Vanilla. True to his word, Sonic got Vanilla back, and Cream was happily reunited with her mother, though Sonic left before Cream could thank him.

Sonic Advance 3

In Sonic Advance 3, after the Earth was split into seven regions by a massive Chaos Control induced by Dr. Eggman, Cream was taking a walk with Cheese in Cyber Track, but got lost. There, she met Sonic and their friends, and joined up with them to undo Eggman's work on the planet.

Cream befriends G-merl.

While crossing the different regions, Cream and her friends successfully collected the seven Chaos Emeralds. Along the way, they also faced Dr. Eggman's newest creation, G-merl, a rebuilt version of Emerl. In the end, Cream and her friends got to the Emerald Altar where they beat the Hyper EggRobo and used the Master Emerald to restore the planet. Soon after, Cream and the others found Sonic following his battle with Ultimate G-merl and welcomed him back before following him towards new adventures. Some time after, Cream and her mother found G-merl's broken body on a beach and brought him to Tails, who repaired G-merl and restored his predecessor's friendly personality. Cream soon after befriended G-merl, who came to live with her and Vanilla.

Sonic Heroes

Cream having saved their clue.

In Sonic Heroes, when Chocola had gone missing, Cream and Cheese went looking for them. They eventually met Amy and Big who revealed they were looking for Sonic and Froggy respectively. As they pondered on Amy's clue to their friends' whereabouts, Cream got it back when it nearly blew away. She was also nearly blown away herself, but was saved by Big. Regrouping, the quartet set out to find their friends, forming Team Rose.

Which searching near the sea, Team Rose ran afoul with Dr. Eggman, but Cream and her team beat him and his Egg Hawk. After that, the team followed Amy's hunch about Sonic's whereabouts to Grand Metropolis, though Cream had her doubts about it. After escaping the Power Plant, Team Rose eventually found Team Sonic and fought them, hoping they could make Sonic tell them of Froggy and Chocola's whereabouts, but Team Sonic gave them the slip during the fight.

Getting to Casino Park, Cream was surprised by Sonic's aversion to Amy (though she kept quiet about it) before the team decided to find Eggman and thereby Sonic. While scrolling, they were met by Eggman's robot horde which they defeated. As they got to Rail Canyon, Cream saw Cheese sensed Chocola nearby while her friends picked up on the others. When they reached Eggman's base, Eggman attack them in the Egg Albatross, but they beat him. After the fight, however, they learned the Eggman they fought was a copy and Froggy and Chocola were not there, much to Cream's sadness. Suspecting that Eggman were behind their kidnappings, Team Rose decided to find Eggman to free their friends.

Continuing their journey through the jungle, Team Rose came across Team Chaotix who demanded Cheese, which made Cream suspect that they were the ones who took Chocola. After having to fight Team Chaotix, Team Rose found Hang Castle which Cream found scary, but was nonetheless urged on by Amy. After they escaped from Mystic Mansion, Team Rose met Eggman and his robot horde, but they defeated it.

Team Rose reunited with Froggy and Chocola.

Following that, Team Rose got to the Egg Fleet where they searched for Eggman's fleet and eventually found the Final Fortress. There, they found Eggman in his Egg Emperor and beat him. Though their opponent turned out to be another fake, it released Chocola and Froggy, and Cream was happy on behalf of Cheese. She and Big then watched laughing as Amy saw and chased after Sonic.

Later, Team Rose, Sonic, Chaotix and Dark witnessed the return of Metal Sonic, the true kidnapper of Froggy and Chocola and mastermind behind the teams' adventures, who had been impersonating Eggman so he could follow them and copy their data for a plan to conquer the world himself, and saw him transform into Metal Madness. Seeing that the teams had collected all the Chaos Emeralds, the real Dr. Eggman came up with the plan of using them against Metal Sonic. Cream and her team then stayed behind to stall Metal Madness with the others while Team Sonic prepared the Chaos Emeralds. After completing their task, Team Rose watched Team Super Sonic beat Metal Overlord. Following the battle, Cream and the rest of her team said goodbye to Amy as she resumed chasing Sonic.

Shadow the Hedgehog

In Shadow the Hedgehog, Cream wandered into Cryptic Castle with Cheese. While inside, however, she was trapped and separated from Cheese. Fortunately, she was rescued by Shadow and Amy when they came to find her, though she quickly pleaded them to find Cheese. After Shadow found Cheese, Cream thanked him for his help and was reunited with her Chao.

Sonic Battle

In Sonic Battle, Cream and Cheese were dragged by Amy into helping her with boxercise training, though Cream did not like the violence or Amy's overexertion. Eventually, Cream met Emerl, a Gizoid Sonic had found which she had heard of, when Amy came over with him. Amy explained that Emerl was hers and Sonic's practice baby for starting a family, though Cream doubted that was the case. As Amy tried to restart her training, Cream initially stayed away and told Emerl about Amy's obsession with it, but was eventually forced to participate until Amy and Emerl left to find Chaos Emeralds.

Cream tells Emerl about sadness and emotions.

A while later, Cream, Cheese and Amy watched over Emerl while Sonic and Tails checked a lead on a Chaos Emerald. While they were on their own however, Cream, Cheese and Emerl were taken hostage by Dr. Eggman and brought to the Gimme Shelter as a part of a trap for Sonic. There, they tried to escape when they were attacked by Guard Robos. Though Emerl beat them, Cream did not like the violence and taught Emerl about sadness and emotions. They were soon after attacked by E-121 Phis, but while Emerl destroyed them and took their Emerald Shards, Cream was sad for refusing to help in the fight. By having Emerl trick Eggman, Cream, Cheese and Emerl learned of an escape route from the Gimme Shelter and the key for it.

Though they found the key while Emerl destroyed the Phis guarding it and took their Emerald Shards, Cream was scared by Emerl's brutality and began crying until Emerl calmed down. When they reached the escape route they found Chaos Gamma guarding it. As Chaos Gamma attacked Emerl, Emerl refused to fight back because he did not want to make Cream cry again. Though shaken, Cream was encouraged by Cheese and stood up to fight Chaos Gamma, giving them enough time to retreat from Chaos Gamma. Cream then apologized to Emerl for getting him hurt and the two reconciled and decided to prepare themselves to fight Chaos Gamma. Once Cream seemed ready, they returned to Chaos Gamma and defeated him. As Chaos Gamma lamented his defeat, Cream told him that the power he craved from Emerl should be used to protect others before Chaos Gamma relinquished his Emerald Shard which combined with their Emerald Shards to make a whole Chaos Emerald for Emerl. Eggman then arrived, but Cream and her friends caught Eggman in one of his own traps, allowing them to contact Sonic to pick them up.

Some time afterwards, Cream met Emerl again who had come to fight her so he could fight Shadow. Though Cream accepted, she was still defeated. Later, Cream and Cheese came to see Emerl stop Eggman and his Final Egg Blaster onboard the Death Egg through a monitor. When Eggman was defeated, however, Eggman fired the Final Egg Blaster, destroying some stars, causing Emerl to revert to his original programming. However, Eggman could not control Emerl as expected, and Emerl prepared to fire the Final Egg Blaster at Earth. Lamenting their impending doom, Cream pleaded Sonic to stop Emerl. When Sonic's original plan to stop Emerl with the Master Emerald failed, however, he had to destroy Emerl. Once it was done, Cream wept over Emerl's death, though she was assured by Sonic that Emerl still existed in the Emerald Shards.

Sonic Rush

Cream and Cheese meet Blaze.

In Sonic Rush, Cream and Cheese came across Blaze the Cat while on their own. While Cream hid from Blaze in the bushes so they could get closer to talk to her, Blaze noticed her, so Cream introduced herself and asked if she wanted to be friends. Once Blaze greeted her, Cream took Blaze to her home where they met Vanilla. Over a cup of tea, Cream learned that Blaze was looking for the Sol Emeralds which had been taken by Dr. Eggman so she could save her world. Cream therefor offered out of friendship to be Blaze's guide when she refused to seek Sonic's help, which Blaze reluctantly accepted.

While looking for and collecting the Sol Emeralds, Cream offered Blaze a visit to the flower garden, but was declined, when they met Knuckles. Cream introduced Blaze and Knuckles to each other (though she infuriated Knuckles by mentioning his shortcomings), but when Knuckles grew suspicious of Blaze, Cream had to leave with Blaze while leaving Knuckles buried under rocks. A while later, Cream was looking for Sonic for his help despite Blaze's protest when they met Amy. After Cream had introduced Amy and Blaze to each other (though she got Amy angry by noting her shortcomings too), she decided after Amy had left that they should follow her, sure that Amy's inner "Sonic Radar" would take them straight to Sonic. Her statement finally made Blaze smile, much to Cream's joy.

Sometime later, Cream and Blaze finally found Sonic and Tails. However, Blaze still did not want their help and left, so Cream followed her despite wondering why she did not ask for their help. When Blaze then asked Cream what kind of person Sonic was, Cream simply answered that he was "like the wind." Later, after getting six Sol Emeralds back, they met Amy again, where Cream and Amy taught Blaze a little about how they were all friends now until Knuckles came to settle the score with Blaze. However, Cream helped Blaze get away by flying off with her.

Cream and Blaze eventually made it to Dead Line where they got the last Sol Emerald back and finally joined forces with Sonic and Tails. As Cream was scared of hearing from her friends that both their dimensions were on the verge of vanishing due to Dr. Eggman and Eggman Nega's mischief, she was taken hostage by Dr. Eggman as a trap for Blaze. However, Cream was saved by Blaze at Point W and the two were happily reunited as best friends.

A while afterwards, Cream came to Blaze's aid with Sonic, Knuckles, Amy and Tails when Eggman and Eggman Nega drained all her Sol Emeralds of their power to conquer both dimensions. There, Cream and her friends gave Blaze their moral support, allowing Blaze to recharge the Sol Emeralds and become Burning Blaze. After Super Sonic and Burning Blaze had defeated the doctors and saved both dimensions, Cream was crying over that Blaze had left to go home to her world. However, she became much happier upon learning from Sonic that Blaze promised to see them again.

Sonic Free Riders

Cream in Sonic Free Riders.

In Sonic Free Riders, Cream came to the World Grand Prix hosted by Dr. Eggman, intending to cheer Amy and her friends participating in the races on, but Amy had her join the tournament with her and Vector as part of Team Rose. After Cream barely caught up to her team when they hurried out to register, they went up against Team Heroes for their first race. After winning over Team Heroes, Cream had her Extreme Gear praised by Tails, which Cream considered an important testimony.

In their second race, Cream and her Team had to face Team Babylon. Between the races, Cream kept Vector grounded after he got fired up about the crash prize. Eventually, Team Rose beat Team Babylon and Cream greeted her mother over TV, promising to keep doing her best.

At the finals, Team Rose's last opponent was Team Dark. Between the races, Cream tried to keep the peace between Amy and Vector. When it seemed Cream and her team were sure to win after winning the last race, it turned out that E-10000B was too damaged to be in the decisive race, meaning their last victory did not count, much to Cream's disappointment. As such Team Rose had to race Team Dark again to determine the champions. Regardless, Team Rose still beat Team Dark, ensuring their victory, where Cream announce her joy to Cheese and her mother back home. No sooner though, she had to bring Amy back for the awards ceremony when Amy ran off to find Sonic.

Over the course of the following tournaments, Team Rose suffered their own fair share of defeats. Cream, however, remained ever optimistic and polite about her losses while promising to do better next time. After the tournament was over, Cream and the other teams went to the awards ceremony to collect their prizes but Eggman made all of the competitors race his "ultimate Gear-jockey robot". After the race, Eggman revealed that he used the World Grand Prix to gather the riders' racing data with his E-10000 robots to create the ultimate Extreme Gear which he could use for his own agenda. Eggman then challenged the others to a race which Cream accepted, refusing to let a "cheater" like him win. After defeating Eggman, however, Metal Sonic revealed himself as the one controlling E-10000B and passing fake data to Eggman, while using the real data to beat Sonic on Extreme Gear.

Cream and the others remained behind and watched Sonic and Metal Sonic race each other, with Sonic emerging victorious. After it was revealed that there never was cash prize to begin with, Cream felt sorry for Vector who was upset over it before she and the others left.

Sonic Colors

Cream and Cheese are saved by Sonic.

In the Nintendo DS version of Sonic Colors, Cream and Cheese accidentally wandered into Dr. Eggman's Incredible Interstellar Amusement Park while out on a walk. There, she was attacked by Orbot and Cubot who thought that Cheese was a Wisp. Luckily, Sonic showed up and saved her. As Sonic and Tails asked her how she ended up in the park, she explained how she got there and that the elevator to the park was "quite exciting."

Cream and Cheese were soon after attacked by Cubot again while protecting a Chao, but Sonic came to their aid. As Cubot left, cursing he would not get dinner now, Cream felt bad for Cubot. Though Sonic was amazed by Cream's sympathy, Cream insisted that everyone had to eat to become big and strong. When Sonic gave an excellent performance for her, Cream suggested that they gave a name to the Chao they protected. Tails suggested "Tornado", but as the Chao did not like it, Cream named it "Milk" instead.

Sonic Generations

In the console/PC version of Sonic Generations, Cream and Cheese attended and helped prepare Sonic's surprise birthday party. When Sonic arrived, Cream and the rest welcomed him. As the party started, however, the Time Eater suddenly appeared, and Cream and Cheese were sucked into one of the Time Eater's Time Hole and ended up in the White Space, where they were turned into statues due to the Time Eater's effects.

Cream and Cheese after returning to normal.

Eventually, Cream and Cheese were returned to normal by Sonic and Classic Sonic. When Classic and Modern Sonic confronted the Time Eater, which was revealed to be controlled by Dr. Eggman and Classic Eggman, Cream arrived at the scene of the battle with the others and cheered on both Sonics, allowing them both to transform into Super Sonics. When the Sonics defeated the Time Eater, Cream and the others were sent back to the present. Continuing the party from where it left off, Cream later waved goodbye to the younger Sonic and Classic Tails when they returned to their own world.

Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

Cream tells about how she lost Cheese.

In Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Cream was out picking flowers with Cheese in Green Hill Zone when they were attacked by wild animals and were separated. While looking for Cheese, Cream met Sonic and her friends and asked for help looking for Cheese. Once Sonic returned with Cheese, Cream thanked him and joined them in their latest adventure where they were trying to stop a group called the Marauders after they had stolen the Chaos Emeralds.

Cream and the team eventually found Eggman, who they believed were in league with the Marauders. However, the doctor claimed that he opposed the Marauders too and that he had been reformed, willing to help Cream and the others by leading them into Metropolis where the Marauders were stationed and had drawn Angel Island to with the Chaos Emeralds, which the team accepted. Along the way, they discovered the Marauders were a group of echidnas from the Nocturnus Clan, exiled to the Twilight Cage 4,000 years ago. After entering Metropolis, Cream and the team made it to Angel Island where they assisted Sonic in trying to stop the Nocturnus Clan's leader, Imperator Ix, who sought to rule the world, from stealing the Master Emerald. Despite their efforts though, Ix got away with the Master Emerald and used it to create a wormhole into Sonic’s dimension so the Nocturnus Clan could conquer it.

Having survived Angel Island's fall, the team came up with the plan of going after Ix into the Twilight Cage and reclaim the Emeralds to stop Ix. Using the Blue Cyclone Tails and Eggman created for this purpose, Cream and her friends traveled into the Twilight Cage while Eggman remained behind to watch the wormhole. Inside the Twilight Cage, Cream and the team got five of the Chaos Emeralds back and forged alliances with the alien races in the Twilight Cage. When they prepared to infiltrate Nocturne to find the last Emeralds, the group was able to enter this stronghold with the help from their alien allies. Once they arrived on Nocturne, the group got the last Chaos Emeralds back and Cream participated in the final battle against Ix while Knuckles got the Master Emerald back. After Sonic defeated Ix, Ix started to close the wormhole out of the Twilight Cage, but Cream and the others got through it just in time. When they returned home however, Cream and her friends saw that much time had passed, thus allowing Eggman to rebuild his forces, which they faced upon exit from the Twilight Cage.
