But in Sonic 2 wasn't Metal Sonic essentially just a recolor of Sonic (gray instead of blue)?

I guess it was kind of cool but his Sega CD version looks like a bit more of a stand-out character.

Nah he's all big and silver and nasty lookin'

And then in S&K he was blue and skinnier, but still big (and easier to fight, imo)

And then Sonic CD had the little, lanky metal sonic.

Pretty cool. I'd rather like to see his Sonic 2 and Sonic & Knuckles incarnations myself :monster:

You putz, that's not Metal Sonic. Metal Sonic was the first. He's from Sonic CD.

Silver Sonic is in Sonic 2. Mecha Sonic is in Sonic and Knuckles. They're all separate robots.

Christ, even I knew that. :monster:

I always thought that distinction was kinda silly. Robotnik was obviously going for the same thing all three times, they were just progressively upgraded versions. "Silver" Sonic could barely move, "Mecha" Sonic was slightly more agile, "Metal" Sonic could match Sonic move for move. They're all metal. (And yes, I'm aware Sonic 3 came out after CD) Also Metal Sonic looks less cool than the others, imo.

Silver implies it looks identical but silver, which it doesn't. And what's even the difference between metal and mecha anyway :P

Makoeyes987 07/14/2011 07:55 PM

Naw, Metal Sonic has completely different specs and abilities than the other two. He's an entirely separate model, the first. That's like saying a Game and Watch, Gameboy, and DS are essentially the same. XD

And screw you, Metal Sonic is the most badass of them all. He was also arguably the most difficult, seeing as how you had to outrace him, not beat him. I'll never forget that epic footrace on Stardust Speedway. All those other versions sucked ass. :monster:

I'd liken it more to Gameboy, Gameboy Color, and Gameboy Advance :monster:

Max Payne 07/14/2011 08:21 PM

I really hope this game is good..

Tetsujin 07/14/2011 09:43 PM

It better be.

I dunno he just looks like Sonic except bigger and a different color. :P

See, you guys have completely grabbed my attention now with Metal/Mecha/Silver Sonic discussions. As a lifelong Sonic fan, I can safely say that Metal Sonic is indeed the best design, as well as the most powerful. Did you SEE him in Sonic Heroes? That was Metal Sonic... totally badass, even if the game itself sucked.

ForceStealer 07/17/2011 04:45 AM

*shrug* I think Sonic 2's version is still the most imposing. All solid metal and bolted together, that noise he makes, the fact that his spikes move along his back like a freaking repeating saw.
And that move where he rolls up, jumps, and shoots spikes got me SO OFTEN as a kid! :rage: :monster:

Oni Peridot 07/17/2011 05:11 AM

There's no denying that Silver Sonic was fairly epic for his time... but in the long run, Metal Sonic is the coolest. Hell, he was the main villain of a freakin' SONIC movie!

It looks like a goddamn FAO Schwartz wind up toy. Get the hell out with your hard on for it. :monster:

The only reason he's so damn tough is Sonic 2 had the BRILLIANT idea of not giving you a single goddamn ring for the final two boss fights. That's so damn cheesy.

Sonic CD's epic race against Metal Sonic in Stardust Speedway is arguably more difficult and requires creative skill to defeat your metal doppelganger in a game of speed.

I'm quoting this for truth, man! XD

I challenge you to find Sonic 2's demeaning himself in such a way Mr. Dated-reference :monster:
