Sonic Man (ソニックマン Sonikkuman?) is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is a very strange person who mimics Sonic the Hedgehog.


Sonic Man is a tall and slightly muscular human with tan skin who dresses up like Sonic by wearing a blue helmet with spikes that resemble Sonic’s quills and a visor that covers his eyes, white gloves with ring cuffs, blue jeans, red shoes resembling Sonic's, and a T-shirt that sports the title screen emblem from the original Sonic the Hedgehog.


Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

In Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Sonic Man met Sonic in Soleanna New City. He assumed that Sonic is merely one of his fans in a costume, and denied that the hedgehog was the real one. In response, Sonic Man challenged him to a race through Soleanna New City to see who the real Sonic is, only to lose. After that, he was shocked to have found out that he's met Sonic, asking if he could have his autograph and if he could be his apprentice.

Later, Sonic Man returning to his mimic antics, wanting to show his racing "prowess" to Silver the Hedgehog. As such, he challenges the white hedgehog to another race in Soleanna Castle Town, only to lose again. Angry of this, Sonic Man simply stated that he was "just warming up" and lied that he heard someone in need of help as an excuse to leave.


Sonic Man is a huge fan of Sonic, showing his admiration by dressing in Sonic cosplay. Sonic Man idolizes Sonic, wanting to be just like him. At some point, his obsession with Sonic became so great that he began to believe he was Sonic. Sonic Man acted cocky and self-absorbed, claiming that he is a superhero and bragging about “his” heroic deeds. He believed that he was famous and acted annoyed towards those who either disregarded his "supersonic powers" or did not know him. However, after the real Sonic beat him in a race, he realized he must be the real Sonic and snapped out of his delusion.
