The Earth is a location that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog film series produced by Paramount Pictures. It is a planet located on the "far side of the universe" that Sonic the Hedgehog took residence on after he had to escape from his planet.

Description

Overall, Earth is almost identical to the real-life planet. It is mostly colored blue due to most of its surface being covered in water. Numerous countries can also be found across the planet, such as Egypt, Japan and the United States.

Earth is mainly inhabited by sapient animals called humans, though other non-anthropomorphic animal species, such as turtles and koalas, also live there.

History

Past

At some point, the evil Dr. Robotnik was employed by the United States government, whom Robotnik would aid in averting several global incidents, including civil wars in the Middle East.

Ten years ago, Sonic the Hedgehog came to Earth after being forced to leave his home planet. Staying in hiding, away from the Earth's human population, a lonely Sonic settled down in a cave near Green Hills, Montana.

In the present day, Green Hills' world-weary sheriff, Tom Wachowski, received a letter of admission for the San Francisco Police Department, leading him and his wife, Maddie Wachowski, to plan their move to San Francisco. In the meanwhile, Sonic tried to play baseball himself. However, as his frustrations grew over being all alone, he accidentally unleashed an electromagnetic pulse that caused a blackout across the Pacific Northwest. In response, the United States government sent out Dr. Robotnik to investigate the incident.

With the government on his trail, Sonic fled to Tom's garage so he could escape to the Mushroom Planet with a Ring in peace. However, he was found by Tom, and the latter shot him with a tranquilizer. As Sonic passed out, he accidentally sent his remaining Rings to San Francisco. When Sonic recovered under Tom's watch, Sonic convinced Tom to help him hide from Robotnik when he arrived. However, when Tom got on Robotnik's bad side, he and Sonic escaped. Afterward, Sonic convinced Tom to help him get to San Francisco and get his Rings back so he could escape Earth. In the meantime, Robotnik set out to capture Sonic with his associates so he could uncover the source of Sonic's powers for his own needs.

While trying to kill Sonic and Tom during their travel, during which the hedgehog and human bonded through some escapades, Robotnik learned to harness the power of one of Sonic's energized quills. Meanwhile, Tom and Sonic arrived in San Francisco. There, Sonic, Tom and Maddie retrieved Sonic's Rings, only for them to be attacked by Robotnik aboard his Eggpod. After Sonic sent Tom and Maddie to Green Hills with a Ring, he was pursued by Robotnik across the planet as he tried to escape the doctor through Ring portals, before ending up in Green Hills. There, with Tom's help, Sonic defeated Robotnik and sent him to the Mushroom Planet. Afterward, Robotnik's records were erased by the United States government, and Sonic was allowed to move in with the Wachowskis, who had decided to stay in Green Hills after everything that had happened. The United States government also tried to make contact with Sonic, but failed.

In the meantime, Tails arrived on Earth while looking for Sonic.
