Final Smash - Super Sonic:
Sonic turns into Super Sonic (basically turns sparkly yellow). You can move him about with the control stick, though he is extremely fast and can be hard to control. You damage enemies by ramming them. Whole thing lasts 13 seconds, and does 18 damage per contact.

Sonic is the fastest character in the game. Use that to your advantage. His disadvantage is that all of his attacks are basically the same. Keep your foes close, but not too close and use his special attacks to mow through them.

Defense Strategy:
Don't let him gain speed. Stay in as close as you can and constantly pummel him. While he is fast, his attacks aren't that fast. Don't let him gain distance.

From Forum:

Here are some extra comments from the members of our forums for Sonic...

The high-speed blue hedgehog makes his well-anticipated Smash Bros. debut. Being known for his speed, Sonic is clearly the fastest character in the game. He also appears to have attacks - such as his classic spin dash - that can plough through multiple characters at a time.

How to unlock: Complete the Subspace Emissary

Special moves

Standard: Homing Attack. Sonic jumps in to the air and - homing on to the nearest opponent - slams in to them. If he is in the air, he will automatically go in to homing attack without jumping.

Side: Spin Dash. Sonic dashes forward while curled up in a ball. By holding it, you can briefly charge to send Sonic faster. You can jump during the dash to perform extra hits, allowing for Sonic to combo opponents easily.

Up: Spring Jump. Sonic summons a spring to jump high in to the air. If this move is performed on the ground, the spring will stay, allowing other characters to use it after him.

Down: Spin Charge. Sonic curls up in to a ball and - by holding the button - charges up a spin, then releases when the button is released. It can be charged indefinately and doesn't have any jump capabilities.

Final Smash: Super Sonic Transformation. Sonic summons the 7 Chaos Emeralds and tempoarily transforms in to Super Sonic. While like this, Sonic flies about the screen, damaging and sending anyone he touches soaring. If it runs out while he is off the stage, he will fall and self-destruct.

Sonics up B does 8 damage so wtf

And you have one more attack, if you run let go and touch the same side button to get a quik spin so if you touch double you get two times faster and you can do a quik spin if you touch the a button then you get a qiik spin with ten damage

Sonic is super fast but his attacks are weak and by the way super sonic does by attacking 20 damage and his spring jump does take 8damage if you doe it in airbecause the spring hurts you

Sonic's spring move can damage people... if you use it in the air the spring will fall down and cause about 1 % daamage if it hits someone. Not exactly a powerful attack but it can throw people off... like someone who is charging for a smash attack

Lots of you who want another character for ssb4 from the Sonic series will be bad why? Because it ruins how special of a character it is to be in a nintendo brawling game when there from sega. Putting more characters from Sega will not make Sonic a special charcter. Snake has the same special character. So please keep adding Nintendo characters along with Sonic and Snake.

Tabuu will trophy-ify everyone and nobody can stop it.... then BOOM! SONIC!
How come he gets a dramatic entrance?

Sonic is the best at comboing because all of his aireal attacks are linkable to his B attacks though hes is hard to master his combos.
