    Super Smash Bros Brawl- Sonic

    Hello everybody, I am ultimentra- long time smash bros fan and got brawl as soon as it was released here in america. I have unlocked all of the characters and I decided I really wanted to play as Sonic. However I have discovered that compared to other characters of his stature he is severely underpowered. Sure he has speed, but so does fox and fox at least does decent damage. Is this a known fact that Sonic sucks? Is this do to a bias at HAL Laboratories or was this accidental? Or is Sonic not unbalanced at all and I am not using him correctly? If someone could answer these questions with or provide some advice on sonic I would really appreciate it. Thanks a bunch.

    To me it sounds like our not using him right You see speed = power you have to train with him and learn his everymove then you will win lots to fights remember
    speed = power

    they all have their special talents... whether it be strength, speed, etc... its only the character so much before its your own talents that do real damage, specially against different people using different characters. try to learn the character best you can... i saw on a sig once that said something along the lines of... "dont play till you can do anything, play until you cant miss anything"

    checks and balances.

    So do you guys have any suggestions as to how I could use him "correctly"? Have any special combos that have worked out well that you would like to share?

    sonic has speed but I think the cool thing about him is his recovery if he falls off stage

    According to guides, Sonic is best used with hit-and-run methods, seeing how pretty much nobody can catch up with you. (seriously, Sonic+Bunny Hood = Sonic just as fast as the cars of

    If you want to add me in Brawl, PM me that you're going to (and include your brawl name and friend code). Also, PM me if you delete me, so I can delete your name, too. I need space, ya know.

    For anyone who added me in Brawl and deleted me because it still said "Awaiting Registration", please re-add me. It just means we both haven't been online at the same time.

    sonic's fun to use and fast as hell, but i know what you mean.

    half the time, i'm racking up my enemies' % to above 150, and i just can't ko them.

    sonic's speed and recovery (BOING!!!) are what attracts most people.

    every character has its uses. sonic's are quite hard to exploit as the timing is harder. try using your spring into down airs.

    here's a vid of a pro melee player playing as sonic.

    I LOVE SONIC! But I have to admit he is underpowered, but for the right reasons, I find Speed very helpful, and yes you obviously aren't using him right, I like to consider him to Combo King.
