Not Much of a Stretch

TimSorry to be short, but I’m on vacation, but due to my dedication to you guys, I’m still posting the comic today! Sonic fans should enjoy this one as Ray has included 25 character references in his Sonic MONSTROSITY. I probably couldn’t name more than 3 myself, but go for it Sega nerds, try to name them all! Ray will put up a list of the references later in the week. I also wouldn’t be surprised if this was similar to the tool Sega actually uses when creating new, lame characters to water down the Sonic franchise each year. Also, let us know of any cool Spore creatures you create in the Spore Creature Creator (there is a demo available).

RayYeah, you’re going to have to be a serious Sonic freak in order to name all of these characters….

    NCG!

    Of course, I don’t know hardly any of them… Sonic, Tales, Black Doom. You know, the regulars.

    Love the logo.

  2. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Wow, that’s a lot of charecters! I see Sonic, Tails, Eggman, Silver, Black Doom, Chaos, Charmy, Vector, Espio, Marine, Knuckles, Emeral?, Rouge?, and Shadow.

    On a related note, I really want to get the Spore Creature Creator, but I’m worried because it installs SecuRom. I’ve heard that it can cause computers to crash.

  3. Hikarusa says:

    Sonic, Chaos, Knuckles, Silver, Charmy, Blaze, Jet, Tails, Rouge/Chao, Amy, Shadow, MAYBE Black Doom’s Eye, Big, Marine, Eggman, and 10 others.

    Btw, I’m not just guessing,

    Sonic: A chunk of it
    Chaos: The liquid arms
    Knuckles: The… knuckles…
    Silver: The whitish/silverish spikes/forehead
    Charmy: The antenna thingies
    Blaze: The red gem thing on the forehead
    Jet: The green… butt part and the beak
    Tails: The tails
    Rouge/Chao: The bat wings
    Amy: The headband
    Shadow: The chest part
    Black Dooms Eye: The black spikes
    Big: Big’s Belt
    Marine: The tail coming out of one of Tails’ tails
    Eggman: Eggman’s mustache

  4. VFDroid says:

    Let’s see…

    Head / Upper Torso: Sonic
    ‘Stache: Eggman
    Tiara: Silver
    Head Jewl-thing: Blaze
    Antennae: Charmy
    Horns: Black Doom
    Goggles: Storm’s on top, Waves’ underneath
    Headband: Amy
    Chain: Vector
    Cloth-neclace thing: Cream
    Chest: Could be either Shadow or Silver, I believe they both have that.
    Left arm: Chaos
    Right Arm: Emerl
    Hands: Knuckles
    Badge thing: E-102 Gamma
    Wings: Rouge
    Belt: Big
    Tail: Tails / Marine
    Lower Torso: Bean (This one I had to look up…)
    Feet: Chao

    And all but Bean were identified by memory. I’m easily a serious Sonic freak…

  5. Hikarusa says:

    QUESTION!

    Why did Tim quit with the “Name That Game” games?

  6. Hikarusa says:

    Let’s see…
    Head / Upper Torso: Sonic
    Tiara: Silver
    Antennae: Charmy
    Horns: Black Doom
    Goggles: Storm’s on top, Waves’ bellow
    Chain: Vector
    Cloth-neclace thing: Cream
    Chest: Could be either Shadow or Silver, I believe they both have that.
    Left arm: Chaos
    Right Arm: Emerl
    Badge thing: E-102 Gamma
    Wings: Rouge
    Belt: Big
    Tail: Tails / Marine
    Lower Torso: Bean (This one I had to look up…)
    Feet: Chao
    And all but Bean were identified by memory. I’m easily a serious Sonic freak…

    Bean and Jet look extremely similair though… how could you tell who’s who? I mean… not from just looking at parts of them…

  7. Cleses says:

    And on top of that, Vector’s chain, Emerl’s right arm, Wave’s sunglasses, Beam’s (or whatever that duck was called in Fighters) ass and legs and… Bark’s scarf?
    I’m also pretty sure that the metallic item in the chest is from E102-gamma.
    Heh, this is kinda entertaining.

  8. Haniko says:

    So THAT’S how they make new Sonic characters.
    My hat idea was WAY off.

  9. VFDroid says:

    Arg, noticed a few more after editing time was over: New list:

    Head / Upper Torso: Sonic
    ‘Stache: Eggman
    Beak: Jet
    Tiara: Silver
    Head Jewl-thing: Blaze
    Nose horn: Espio
    Antennae: Charmy
    Horns: Black Doom
    Goggles: Storm’s on top, Waves’ underneath
    Headband: Amy
    Chain: Vector
    Cloth-necklace thing: Cream
    Chest: Could be either Shadow or Silver, I believe they both have that.
    Left arm: Chaos
    Right Arm: Emerl
    Hands: Knuckles
    Badge thing: E-102 Gamma

    I didn’t quit, I just sort of…got really busy and forgot! I’ll try to put one up next week for you!

    P.S.: You Sonic freaks are crazy!

    Jet is feathery. And I don’t think he has yellow legs…

  12. VFDroid says:

    I’m not sure, but it looks like Knuckles’ crescent chest-mark is also underneath the Shadow / Silver Chest fur…

  13. dr. mario says:

    I can see the plot for the next sonic game now sonic drinks the DNA of all his frinds and turns into that

  14. Anon says:

    Tim and Eri- Ray Awesome Sho- Comic Great Job.

    Also, all you guys beat me to it.

  15. dr. mario says:

    I did’ent even try to name them

  16. lwelyk says:

    I can name almost all of them. I am also a huge sonic geek. Everyone has already beaten me to listing them.

  17. Hikarusa says:

    Tim and Eri- Ray Awesome Sho- Comic Great Job.
    Also, all you guys beat me to it.

    Eew… no. BAD. That sentence is the single worst thing in existence. EEEEEEWWWWWW. That show is horrible.

  18. Izaccthefrost says:

    um wow I’m with Tim I don’t know that much of the parts….. but I’m thoroughly enjoying the spore creature creater. yeah you can see my first two um here (i think)

  19. Swimming_Bird says:

    Somehow, the mustache is the creepiest part…look out for this guy in a dark alley.

    And sorry if this is being repetitive and annoying, but I just realized that the podcast probably doesn’t get so much traffic by late Tuesday night, so I’m gonna say it again…

    To anyone on here still doing Brawl, I’ve finally added everyone on the 2P Start list, and I’m on there now under Adam, so please add me if you’d be so kind. Thanks again!

  20. Wow. You guys are good. I could only spot 10. Well, back to learning all of the characters in Sonic the Fighters…

  21. Blu3_Pho3n1x says:

    wow….I only spotted 4

    Of course I’m always playing the old ones with Just sonic and occasionally tails, so….
    eh,whatever, funny comic!

    Well if you want to keep only those happy memories, don’t play beyond Sonic Adventure 2.

    What he said, I am actually looking forward to Spore, the idea seems like a cool one to mess around with. Too bad I’m not much of a Pc gamer and the DS version looks extremely watered down compared to the Pc version

  24. tustin says:

    On a related note, I really want to get the Spore Creature Creator, but I’m worried because it installs SecuRom. I’ve heard that it can cause computers to crash.

    Where do you hear that? And why would a downloadable demo install SecuROM? That’s for CD copy protection.

    Oh yeah, and great comic guys. My friend (who likes looking at the comics every once in a while) isn’t too pleased with it, but I think it is amazingly clever. 🙂 He really liked the last two comics (with the story and everything).

  25. dj75728 says:

    Looks like it.

    Also, all you guys beat me to it.

    Yes exactly. Darn me having fun yesterday with my friends. I should’ve waited for the comic to go up and claim 1st.

    Tim and Eri- Ray Awesome Sho- Comic Great Job.

    Eew… no. BAD. That sentence is the single worst thing in existence. EEEEEEWWWWWW. That show is horrible.

    Agreed.

  26. Clem says:

    I do belive the Sonic series just got owned.

  27. Rokai says:

    I see with my little eyes LOTSA’ SONIC NERDS!

  28. Junewe says:

    I love Sonic. Now I’m going to watch the series! May I have it as background on my computer? 🙂

  29. Anon says:

    What series.
    I wanna watch too.

  30. dj75728 says:

    What series.
    I wanna watch too.

    Sonic Underground :mrgreen: ! Damn I hated the theme for that series. And the series too, but the theme is still etched into my mind.

  31. Hikarusa says:

    That reminds me. Spore, EA, and Microsoft all suck until I get a new graphics card or computer, which both will probably be never.

    Ok, so here’s what happened:

    My online friend (Zephrion) downloaded the Spore trial when it came out and put a few videos on You-Tube yesterday. I decided to download it. So I do that and it takes a few minutes. I click on it to install it, and 10 minutes later the thing comes up. I go through and click the install button and it installs. Now I have to install some other crap, so I click yes to install it and it turns out I don’t have the right crap to use the thing that I just installed to use the Spore trial. So I go to Microsoft’s download place through a link and download crap and insert a code from what I downloaded to continue then I clicked X. So then 10 minutes of wondering how to do crap later I figure out I didn’t finish installing that thing on the Microsoft site. So I go and I already put in the password and I download and install the thing I needed to install. So by now I’m really annoyed and I’m FINALLY gonna be able to play it. So I click on it and it says… wait for it…

    “Sorry, your graphics card is below our min spec, the game will not run.”

    I just wanted to commit some crimes against the laws of nature. D:

    What series.

    Sonic Underground ! Damn I hated the theme for that series. And the series too, but the theme is still etched into my mind.

    That show was horrible. Worse than the aformentioned horrible show that Anon stated clearly.

  32. charmy says:

    lol NCG I know the antenna is from charmy, and the spikes are from sonic and the tail is from tails but that’s all.

  33. Tristan says:

    AAAAAAAAAAGH MY EYEEEES! MY POOR EYES! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

  34. steve-ohs says:

    I wouldn’t mind playing as that in the next sonic game.

    It also can be your next sonic character to mention instead of black doom.

  35. impmon says:

    hilarious. 😀

    lets see…

    sonic (obviously), tails, maybe marine, bean, big, knuckles, amy, charmy, espio, silver, eggman, shadow, maybe wave and maybe storm. and maybe emerl too.

    thats all i can think of off the top of my head. i’d like to say im a sonic freak, but im not. :l

  36. VFDroid says:

    I wouldn’t mind playing as that in the next sonic game.

    Maybe they should have done that instead of Were-Sonic…

  37. Rokai says:

    @Hikarusa

    I KNOW EXACTLY HOW THAT FEELS! But atleast you actually DID Install Direct X…. *copy and pastes from another website*

    “I……I don’t get it…

    I install it, It says that theres a problem so that I need to reinstall it…
    I uninstall then reinstall it….. Then it says I need DX9 (even though I’ve been trying to install that darned thing since June…2007) I say w/e and click the link, go through everything it tells me to……Then when I’m finally done it says it has the SAME problem as before and needs to be re-installed….I do the same thing as last time….And now it says I need DX9…..

    At that point, I literally broke into tears..”

    I feel for you brother…

  40. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    I’m trying to get more informaton on this SecuROM thing to see if it’s actually going to be an issue or not. I’ll probably get it, eventually. I already know the first creature I’m going to make: the Vortigaunt from Half-Life 2!

  41. steve-ohs says:

    Maybe that is were-sonic.

  42. Draq says:

    I just don’t want to see it when it goes super.

  43. hyper says:

    Hey How it been i was gone for a while i need to catch up How ya been anyways

  44. dj75728 says:

    Hey How it been i was gone for a while i need to catch up How ya been anyways

    We’ve been good. We have a new guy on the boards(Anon), he’s cool. And Dragonblader1 changed his screen name to Hikarusa.

  45. hyper says:

    Really??? what about TIM and REY

  46. Junewe says:

    What series.
    I wanna watch too.

    Search: Too fast for the naked eye. Sonic the hedgehog. I think you will find the series. Acctually I don’t think it’s the underground. Don’t know really though.

  47. Anon says:

    I know the series.

    It was on saturday mornings some time ago.

    There was the green and pink hedgehogs who were Sonic’s siblings.

    And the two robot’s who were Eggman’s henchman.

  48. dj75728 says:

    Really??? what about TIM and REY

    Yeppers skippers! And what about them? They’re fine. Ray finally found a job, and Tim’s the same old same old.

    I know the series.
    It was on saturday mornings some time ago.

    Yeah, it sucked eggs. Spoiled, rotten eggs left over from last zombie jes- I mean easter.

  49. Ethan Kerr says:

    wow. The biggest piece of Sonic/EA randomness ever. epic randomness. So random it will induce the yelling of “WHAT THE F***?!” to just about anyone who views it.

    By the way, on the contrary to a past comic you guys posted, Sonic turns into a Werehog (the whole concept of a were creature isnt new, “Wallace and Gromit” featured a Were-Rabbit.), not a Werewolf. But then again, we didn’t know Sonic would turn into a Werehog at that time.

  50. Rokai says:

    Really??? what about TIM and REY

    And Tim says he’ll make another “Name that Game” soon.

  51. Anon says:

    zombie jes- I mean easter.

    Were you about to say Zombie Jesus day. 🙂
    You read Cyanide and Happiness too?

  52. Anon says:

    I just noticed… The comic logo sort of looks like a swatsikah, the Nazi insignia.

    (I can’t spell)

  53. dj75728 says:

    zombie jes- I mean easter.

    Were you about to say Zombie Jesus day.
    You read Cyanide and Happiness too?

    Yes yes! One of the handful of comics I read.

    I just noticed… The comic logo sort of looks like a swatsikah, the Nazi insignia.
    (I can’t spell)

    Swastika. And yeah, it kinda does doesn’t it?

  54. shadowkid says:

    he looks old and scrawny with a jokers touch

  55. Anon says:

    who does?

  56. Tristan says:

    Let’s see who I can identify…
    Sonic, Tails, Charmy, Knuckles, Blaze, Shadow, Vector, and I think maybe Marine and Rouge. That’s all I can do. Cause I don’t know very many characters.

  57. Gadoink says:

    at the time of last comment: all i had really seen of sonic was Sonic Rush and Sonic Rush Adventure (and a tad of Sonic Mega Collection Plus on the PS2 in the waiting room for my doctor’s office).
    Now, its Rush, SRA, a bit more of SMCP, and also….
    I’ve seen Sonic X, and ive read the Sonic X COMIC. also, ive read some Sonic fanfics. lets see who i can get now…
    Sonic: Most of the head
    Shadow: Tuft of chest fur
    Blaze: Jewel in forehead
    Charmy: Antenne
    Espio: Horn
    Eggman: Moustache
    Vector: Chain around neck
    Knuckles: Fists
    Cheese: Ribbon around neck
    Tails: The… tails
    Marine: Another tail
    Rouge: Wings

    Yep, much better then last time

  58. Jen says:

    It looks like an original character I’ve seen on deviantART earlier

  59. Gadoink says:

    Did anyone catch the Amy Rose headband?

  60. Mirby says:

    No Mighty the Armadillo? DISHONOR! DISHONOR!

  61. Vaarsivius says:

    I know everyone says that the green part is Jet, but was I the only person who thought it was Scourge? Back me up here, Ray!
