Sonic X

From Academic Kids

Sonic X is the newest Sonic the Hedgehog animated series, based roughly on the storylines of Sonic Adventure series.

It was animated and produced in Japan by TMS Entertainment with the partnership of Sega and the Sonic Team. In 2003, 4Kids Entertainment licensed Sonic X for American television broadcasting and is currently airing on 4Kids TV, formerly the Fox Box. The U.S. licensing is a joint effort between 4Kids and ShoPro Entertainment. It is also showed in Europe, Australia and Japan by Jetix. Originally planned as a 52 episode series which would be inspired by the storylines of the Sonic Adventure series, Sonic X has now expanded to 78 episodes which was shown in Thailand and France in January 2005.

The 4Kids version of Sonic X has been criticized for editing out portions and re-wording certain phrases to make it more kid friendly, and even rejecting Sonic's English game voice actor Ryan Drummond who wanted to voice for Sonic in the anime. 4Kids rejected him simply because he didn't live in New York City, which is the location of the production studio. Ironically, the Japanese version has the original Japanese seiyu from the Sonic Adventure series, as well as direct quotes from the games, which were almost all changed in the 4Kids version. Even Sonic Adventure 2s theme song, "Live and Learn" which was in Episode 38, was gone. This infuriated many Sonic X fans as well as general Sonic fans which is why they prefer the unedited Japanese version.

Sonic X-exclusive characters

  • Chris Thorndyke - A well-off boy who helps out Sonic since episode one.
  • Danny - Chris' friend
  • Bokkun - Acts as Eggman's messenger
  • Decoe and Bocoe - Two robots that are constantly by Doctor Eggman's side. They once tried to form together in Episode 48, but then realised that they weren't able to do so, much to the dismay of Mongroun and Chris. In Episode 49 they did so in order to summon Bokkun so they can find out where Eggman is.
  • E-Series - Other than the ones established in the games, most E-Series Robots are Sonic X-exclusive and appear constantly, at least for the first 26 episodes. See below for a list of them.
  • Chuck Thorndyke - Chris' grandfather
  • Ella - The Thorndykes' maid
  • Mr. Tanaka - The Thorndykes' butler
  • Topaz - A female GUN agent
  • Nelson and Lindsey Thorndyke - Chris' parents
  • Sam Speed - Leader of the S-Team and Chris' uncle. Has many nicknames in the Japanese version.
  • Francis - Another one of Chris' firends
  • Helen - Little girl in a wheelchair
  • Jerome Wise - At first he tries to prevent the President's reputation from being ruined by Sonic. He gets fired when it was found out that he made a deal with Dr. Eggman and ends up homeless on the streets.
  • Mongroun - An anicent robot that came from deep undergound. It was awakened when Dr. Eggman is trying to place a bomb that will make all the volcanoes in the world erupt and destroy mankind so that he will create the Eggman Empire. Mongroun effortlessly destroyed Decoe and Bocoe (who were either repaired by Tails and Chuck, or reassembled themselves by the end of the episode, depending on which version of the show), but was destroyed by Sonic, Knuckles, and Rouge. Its character design is inspired by Mogera from the Japanese

film Teido Zero Daisakusen.

E-Series robots

Note: Some of the E-Series have no codenames stated in the Japanese version of Sonic X. The names given to E-11, E-14, E-23, E-43, E-47, and E-90 in the American dub by 4Kids are the closest one can get for a name until the official source for the Japanese codenames reveals the original names.

  • E-11 Beacon: Dr. Eggman summons this robot to accompany him to where a Chaos Emerald has been found. Later seen during the attack on Eggman's base. Seen in Episodes 4 and 12.
  • E-12: Attacks Sonic and Tails during a dream Tails is having. Seen in Episode 28.
  • E-13: Makes short appearances in Episodes 1, 11, 12, and 13. All they do is attack intruders.
  • E-14 Sneezer: Makes short appearances in Episodes 1, 11, 12, and 13. All they do is attack intruders.
  • E-18 Guerra-Hard: Sonic confonts this powerful E-Series robot inside Dr. Eggman's base. Seen in Episode 13.
  • E-21 Ballios: These baseball-playing robots make up Dr. Eggman's "Eggs Team" when a Chaos Emerald is discovered Diamond Stadium. Seen in Episode 10.
  • E-23 Missile Wrist: Attacks Station Square when Dr. Eggman tries to take over the new world for the first time. Seen in Episodes 3 and 11 (flashback only). Also seen during a flashback during the dub version of Episode 39.
  • E-35 Funfun: While Dr. Eggman was away from his base tracking down the most recently discovered Chaos Emerald, he brought along this robot. Funfun has a powerful fan installed in him that is capable of blowing his opponents away. Seen in Episodes 12 and 13.
  • E-38 Octoron: Causes havok at Emerald Coast. Seen in Episode 9.
  • E-39 Quizon: These robots construct a theme park called "Eggman's Scream Park" (or rather, "Eggman's Sea Park" in the Japanese version) in place of Hotel de Blanc at Emerald Coast. They eventually combine themselves into one gigantic robot (called "Serpenter" in the dub). Seen in Episode 9.
  • E-42 Torole: These robots show up to wreak everything in sight once Dr. Eggman's recently launched Egg Fort arrives at the mall. Seen in Episode 15.
  • E-43 Falcon: These robots appear and attack Sonic when he shows up to stop the Egg Fort for the first time. Seen in Episode 15.
  • E-45 Sumo-Man: He basically acts as a road block during a race between Sonic and Sam Speed. They both manage to get pass him, however. Seen in Episode 21.
  • E-47 Pumpty: Captures Sonic's friends while Sonic is out fighting Knuckles. Seen in Episode 5.
  • E-51 Intelligente (pronounced In-tella-hen-tay): He takes over Chris's class as the new teacher and enjoys teaching the children. He refuses to follow Dr. Eggman's orders until Eggman shows up in person, threatening to dismantle him. Seen in Episode 6.
  • E-57 Clurken: Attacks Sonic and friends when a Chaos Emerald has been found under the ocean. Seen in Episode 16.
  • E-65 Gorru-Gaooh: Attacks Sonic while he is in Africa with Chris and Tails. Seen in Episode 18.
  • E-66 Da-Dai-Oh: Attacks Sonic's friends at a Chao colony, tracking mud into the river in the process. Seen in Episode 22.
  • E-70 Noizi: Guards the Chaos Emerald Dr. Eggman stole at Diamond Stadium. He is capable of making loud deafening noises. Seen in Episode 11.
  • E-74 Weazo: Attacks Sonic and friends in a movie studio once yet another Chaos Emerald has been found. Seen in Episode 23.
  • E-77 Lucky: Dr. Eggman sends out this robot to look for the final Chaos Emerald. He is made out of lucky charms, but his type of luck appears to be dumb luck. He is last seen fighting in a martial arts tournament held by the President. Seen in Episodes 25, 26, 45 and 46.
  • E-88 Lightning Bird: Attacks Sonic at a farm. A piece of him falls into Sonic's ear for quite a while. Seen in Episode 24.
  • E-90 Super Sweeper: This robot sucks up all the satellites in space so Dr. Eggman can launch his television channel.
  • E-91 Ku-no-i-chi: The only female E-Series robot. She is a ninja robot. Quoted from Dr. Eggman in the Japanese version of Sonic X, "Sometimes she’s a driver, sometimes she’s a female guard, and sometimes she’s a sexy dancer... but her true identity is E-91, Ku-no-i-chi!" On a side note, Ku-no-i-chi's name is roughly translated out to "Lady Ninja." Seen in Episode 17.
  • E-99 Eggsterminator: A highly massive E-Series robot that is a re-formation of the Egg Fort 2. Using the power of the Chaos Emeralds, he is able to move faster than Sonic himself. He eventually went out of Eggman's control and started brutally attacking Sonic. Ultimately, E-99 was destroyed by Super Sonic. He is certainly a very worthy opponent. Seen in Episode 26. (Note: In the Japanese version, E-99's codename is "Egg Emperor." This name clashes with the final boss of the individual teams' stories in Sonic Heroes. The name "Eggsterminator" is used because it was the name given in the dub.)
