An Avatar is a customizable avatar and character created by Rare Ltd that can represent a user or another character in the Xbox Live service on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One video game consoles, Windows 10 and Windows Phone.

Some Sonic the Hedgehog series games feature Avatars as playable characters.

Playable appearances

Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing

Avatars can race in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. Tour avatar drives the Ava-car 720 and its All-Star Move is Party Power, where four Avatar friends pick up the player's car and start running while knocking out anything in their path. For the Wii, Avatars are replaced with Miis.

Sonic Free Riders

Avatars are playable and can ride their own exclusive Extreme Gear: Avatar-M for males and Avatar-F for females.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

Avatars are playable again in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Like last time, they drive the Ava-car 720, which now sports a black and green paint-job to resemble the Xbox 360 S console, and looks more like an actual car. Avatars can be unlocked by beating all of the Normal Grand Prix races on any difficulty, which also unlocks the Mirror Cups. Their All-Star attack is shooting Xbox balls at opponents. A remix of the Avatar Editor/store music plays during their All-Star.

Clothes, accessories and props

Avatars can purchase or unlock certain items that relate to games. Some of these items can only be purchased in shops while some unique items can be unlocked once certain achievements are met in certain games.

Trivia

  • The player can earn a Sonic costume by completing Sonic the Hedgehog 4.
  • In Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, "Avatar" species is classified as Human.
  • Like the Miis the player is able to bring avatar awards their avatar has on into some games, as long as he/she equips the item. This can offer chances to "play as" some out-of-game-characters (like Halo's Master Chief), often resulting in comedic results.
  • There is small cosmetic glitch when the player's avatar is a wearing certain avatar costumes from the Halo series (primarily Spartan armor costumes) in which the visor piece appears as complete black.
