Profiles and statistics[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Cream BrawlTrophy477.png GBA SONIC ADVANCE 2 A young rabbit who is always accompanied by her Chao friend, Cheese. Once a member of Team Rose, she's a spirited go-getter who always gives it her all. Her polite and courteous manner is thought to be a result of her mother's strict discipline. Cream can use her large ears to fly, and her Chao Attack, where she launches Cheese like a missile, is a powerful weapon.

Sidekick to Amy Rose, Cream the Rabbit is a cute, hardworking friend. She has a Chao named Cheese, and they make a great team. She probably wants to cream the next person who makes a joke about their names, but I can't help but want a cream-cheese bagel when I talk about them... You don't often see Cream without Cheese. (Excuse us, we're suddenly really hungry.) Actually, Cream is a lovely, hardworking little rabbit, and Cheese is her beloved pet Chao. They're the perfect, adorable little team, and not in the slightest bit edible.
