Silver the Hedgehog is a recurring character from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. He is a fourteen-year-old hedgehog who comes from at least two-hundred years in the future. He commonly travels through time to assist Sonic and his friends. He has the ability to use psychokinesis which allows him to move objects with the power of his mind, but unlike most hedgehogs from the Sonic the Hedgehog series, he lacks super speed. He was originally voiced by Pete Capella, who voiced him in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games; but was later replaced by Quinton Flynn, who voiced him until 2017. Bryce Papenbrook later replaced Flynn in 2019, first voicing him in the Mario franchise in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.
