Years ago, Sonic had an adventure on Little Planet where he met Amy Rose and fought against Metal Sonic, not to mention beating the robot in a race.[1]

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II

Sonic and Tails head out to a new adventure, from Sonic Super Special Magazine #3.

On board the E.G.G. Station, Sonic has just finished defeating the Egg Destroyer Battlesuit before escaping the exploding space station. Using a rocket from Tails, Sonic returned home to find the fox cub who revealed that Little Planet was making its annual return. As Sonic was reminiscing his last adventure there, the animals informed him and Tails that Eggman was up to his old tricks again, so the duo set off on a brand new journey.[1]

Sonic Unleashed

Sonic walks away from Eggman, from Sonic the Hedgehog #193.

In space, Super Sonic cornered Dr. Eggman while inside Eggman's Space Armada. As Eggman seemingly admitted defeat, Sonic walked away, only for Eggman to activate a machine that drained him of his Super State. While Eggman used the power of the Chaos Emeralds to shatter the world, Sonic transformed into a werehog. Eggman, shocked at this, sent Sonic and the drained-Chaos Emeralds plummeting down to the planet. There, Sonic found the Chaos Emeralds as the sun rose up, returning him to normal. Curious to know what just happened, Sonic set off to a new adventure.[2]

Sonic and the Black Knight

Sonic running towards King Arthur, but Merlina pulls him back, from Sonic the Hedgehog #197.

While preoccupied with his Chili dogs, Sonic was summoned by Merlina to an Arthurian world as King Arthur and his Knights of the Underworld surrounded the young wizard. Sonic quickly engaged the foes, but Merlina held him back as he tried to take on Arthur and the two vanished so Merlian could prepare Sonic for his next adventure.[3]

Sonic Colors

As Sonic and Tails entered Dr. Eggman's Incredible Interstellar Amusement Park, they tried to decide where to go first, as they suspected Eggman was up to something. Suddenly, they saw Orbot, Cubot and Egg Pawns chasing down strange aliens. As Sonic saved the aliens, he received the power of a cyan alien which he used to destroy the Egg Pawns, making Orbot and Cubot leave the scene. Using Tails' handheld as an alien translator for one of the aliens, Sonic and Tails learned that the aliens were being kidnapped by Eggman to be used as fuel. Sonic, along with Tails and the Wisps, thus set off to save the aliens and the planets.[4]

Sonic Generations

The mysterious monster sucks up Sonic's friends, from Sonic the Hedgehog #230.

Later on in Sonic's adventures, Sonic met Tails, only to find his friends–Knuckles the Echidna, Amy Rose, Blaze the Cat, Cream the Rabbit, Rouge the Bat, Vector the Crocodile, Espio the Chameleon, and Charmy Bee–and Tails surprising him with a birthday party. Sonic was then crowded by his friends and was having a great time when a black monster sucked Sonic's friends into portals. Sonic tried to hit the monster, but got knocked unconscious. Sonic later woke up in a chalk-white area where he found a portal to a familiar area which he entered, unaware that he was being watched by his younger self, and of what was to come.[5]

Olympic Trials

Sonic prepares to participate in the Olympic Games, from Sonic the Hedgehog #242.

With the arrival of the Olympic Games, Sonic and his friends got ready to participate. Meeting with Tails in the coliseum, Sonic got side-tracked by the Olympic ring banner until Tails brought back his focus. Unbeknownst to them, Dr. Eggman, along with Orbot and Cubot, had planted traps that caught all of Sonic's friends so Eggman could win the Olympic glory. As Sonic, Shadow and Tails trained for the long jump event, Tails got cornered by Goal Caterkillers. Sonic and Shadow destroyed the robots, but Shadow and Tails got captured.[6]

Sonic being empowered with Olympic spirit, from Sonic the Hedgehog #242.

Making an appearance, Eggman gloated about his victory to Sonic. Goading the doctor, Sonic reminded Eggman that he was still here to kick his butt in the Olympics. However, Eggman had Metal Sonic compete in his stead. After several events, the two competitors were down to the 100 meter dash. Initially too tired to compete, Sonic harnessed the power of the Olympics to re-energize himself and beat Metal Sonic to the Prison Egg, releasing his friends while Eggman and his goons fled. Tails asked Sonic if he was going to rest out for the real Olympics, but the hedgehog denied, not wanting to wait for the next.[6]
