SegaSonic the Hedgehog

SegaSonic the Hedgehog was the name used for branding of the Sonic the Hedgehog series in Japan for the most part of the 1990s. Sega filed a trademark application for "Sonic" in December 1990, several months before the release of the now-famous Mega Drive game. In Japan at the time however, trademark applications could take up to three years for approval, and arcade rival Taito already had the arcade game Sonic Blast Man.

Likely to avoid conflicting with Taito, Sega used "SegaSonic" for branding of its arcade games in the meantime. This lead to Sega's arcade games such as SegaSonic the Hedgehog, SegaSonic Cosmo Fighter and SegaSonic Popcorn Shop to use the SegaSonic branding. It was also used for merchandise of the series such as clothing, household items, and plush toys, likely for consistency.

Image Facts
The Rengoku is an Extreme Gear advertised in the intro cutscene in Sonic Riders. It is neither unlockable or purchasable in the game as it is merely advertised on the digital sign with other recolored boards. It resembles the Type-J, only recolored red and white (despite the Type-J being a Babylon Standard exclusively for Jet).
