Brawl TActics

by Master Lucario (talk)

Welcome to my first ever 'Shroom article. My name's Master Lucario, I'm sure lots of you have heard of me. Since Lucario is already taken, I'll do Sonic. If this goes, I'll start writing for the Shroom more often.

Character #2: Sonic

Our beloved blue hedgehog made his way into Brawl. This was caused many fans to jump for joy. However, many wanted to be voiced by his old voice actor, Ryan Drummond (from Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2, and Sonic Heroes), not the new one, Jason Anthony Griffith (who voices Sonic, Shadow, and Jet in all recent Sonic games), causing an uproar, thus a community called Save Sonic was created. But enough of that. Let's talk about Sonic's Tactics.

Sonic is currently ranked #31 on the official tier list, meaning he is one of the worst characters in the game. However, if you are good, you can still win with Sonic. Use Sonic's speed to your advantage. Don't go too overboard, because if you do, you'll become incredible easy to hit. The F-Smash should be your primary technique for KOs. The Spring Jump is an excellent recovery move, be sure to use it. The Homing Attack is good for hitting opponents who are in the air. The Spin Dash and Spin Charges are almost identical. Be sure to switch them up, so the opponent will never be able to tell which one you are using. Oh, and be sure to spam the Side Taunt. "You're too slow!" will annoy your opponent, and cause them to blindy rush at you. It's good for setting them up. Last, but not least, his Final Smash, Super Sonic. It's widely believed to be the best Final Smash in the game. It's true. Sakurai may have told that going fast makes it easy to dodge, but he lied. The faster you go, the more damage you'll cause. It also allows you to go past the stage boundaries, so you can strike from anywhere.

Song #2: Live & Learn

The main theme of Sonic Adventure 2, performed by the popular band, Crush 40. It plays during the final battle, where Super Sonic and Super Shadow team up to fight the Finalhazard, to stop Space Colony ARK from falling and destroying Earth. An awesome song, and it's definitely worthy of being in Brawl. I just wish they made a more fitting stage than Green Hill Zone to play it on. But apart from that, it's excellent, and a good tune to Brawl to.
