Sonic Q&A Page

This is the Sonic HQ Question and Answer page! In here you can ask us anything you want about Sonic and our page. We'll also post some of the fan's opinion letters on this page. To ask a question or write a letter to the staff of Sonic HQ, click here. Please give us a name. Your question will be answered within a week on this page by either WB or Zifei. This page is updated every weekend.

***Zifei's Note*** Sorry about the no update last week. School is just getting a bit too hard...and Star Wars is getting too good (Go read Vision of the Future). For one thing Luke Skywalker will marry Mara Jade. And that's official.

In the series created by DIC for ABC didn't Tails have an aunt? I don't remember to much of it, all though I do remember that. I used to watch it. I am not a guru of it, but I am interested in it. Could you please tell me if this is so?
The Sender

Yeah, he called Sally "aunt Sally" just because Knothole is like a big family....

HELLO OUT THERE! You can update the comic info section now. Sonic #65, Super Special #7, and Knuckles #20 ARE ALREADY OUT! Sheesh!
CTLinde

Look at it this way, we have to do work outside of the page that's more important...anyway, we're going to reshuffle the staff when we move the page. Then WB won't have to handle 3 huge pages and this page anymore.

Dear Sonic H,Q I Want to know.......were I can bye Sonic & Knuckles for SEGA Mega Drive in Australia.
Jenna-Lu

I don't know...for Mega Drive...they still sell Mega Drives around your place? If they do, you might find it in a retail store. If they don't, well, they're sold out on the games too.

Dear Creator of Sonic Headquarters,
Congrats on the website, I like it just as much as I like Sonic. You've worked very hard to do this webpage. But I want to know, do you know anything about Sonic Anime? I've searched all of " Yahoo" to find if Sonic Anime so I could download it so I can watch it.
Amanda Boston

Sonic Anime...well, it's on the net. Go here.


11-13-98
Dear Sonic HQ, will Sonic anime be transfered to english and released in america?, if so, will sega take out the parts where Knuckles says... (I don't use this word) well... shit, and the parts where Tails clings on to Sera and pushes agenst her... chest parts?
CTLinde

I have heard tons of rumors on this...they might. But don't bet on it. And if they did, nothing will be cut out. But you never know...with the Sonic Adventure movie just around the corner.

Hi Sonic HQ! This is Glory Wolfguard! I got a few questions for your Q & A pagie:
1. Did Knuckles ever make an appearance in Saturday AM Sonic? 2. What exactly is Antoine, a fox, coyote, or something else? 3. What's wrong with your Features page? I keep clicking on links (Survey, Comedy) when I go to there, and it brings me to a GeoCities thing where the art takes forever to load, and it says the address doesn't exist.

1) No.
2) Depend on the version. Archie says he's a coyote....
3) It's not working? It's working now....

I was looking through the game info for Sonic 2 and saw that there was a stage that was scrapped before the games release: Hidden Palace. It also said that you could take a glimpse using a code. Well, it isn't in level select, and it doesn't say how to see it in the code bank. So how DO you get to see this place then? You can listen to the music only, as far as I know. Please reply.
Philip Buccianti

No, you can't play the game. As for a look, you have to get Game Shark (which they don't seem to sale anymore). Some Sonic 2 cartridges have the playable version, but they are very rare.

Dear Sonic HQ,

MIKE

Dear Sonic HQ,
I have this weird picture Sonic walking into this big circle thing. Take a look and tell me what you think please.

Soneechg2

THAT IS ODD....though it looks a bit phoney....Like someone put a sonic sprite on a 8-bit Nintendo game. Not sure. Any speculations Sonic fans?

Dear Sonic HQ,
I'm curious ... how exactly did Knuckles's ancestors dissapear? NR
Net Raptor

According to the comic - Knux's ancestors had been missing for over a century due to the fact of a nuclear holocaust incited bty The Dingo Armada. As oncoming missiles were heading for the island the guardian at that time - Hawking - used his Hyper Zone Projector to literally transport Echidnaopolis - located in the center of the Marble Garden Zone (Sonic 3) - , Dingo City and most animal life into sevaral "Pocket Zones" - similar to the zones we play in videogames. It was after they were transported to thier "zones" that the Island became a nuclear wasteland and it took over a century for the flora and fauna to grow back. During that time it was up to Hawking and Tobor, who were guardians during that time to get busy to restoring the Island. Over time ( Due to Haven's secrecy ) guardians were left out of the loop on this information and were left to defend the actual island itself ( after it had grown back ) with no knowledge of where thier people were - Athair, possibly Locke - BEFORE he found haven, and Knuckles. This explains why Knuckles had NO REASON of knowing what had happened to his ancestors (Sonic 3) - because all this time it had been hidden from him by those in authority (Haven). The thing that opened up the Echidnaopolis Zone and the Dingo City Zone, was the omega wave that was released when the Ultimate Annihilator exploded ( SSS6: Sonic 50 ) after that each zone was literally fighting itself for space but only one could exist. The rest is explained in "Knuckles: Lost Paradise".

Dear Sonic HQ,
Isn't Spectre Tobor's son? Why does he look so weird now? He looked like a normal kid echidna in Knuckles #18 to me!Thanks!

Meow,~ViCkiTtY the EcHiDcAt

To that question - I HONESTLY have no idea....Yet another plot point that will be answered in the future....

Dear Sonic HQ,
Hi, In response to Eric Purdy`s question, you can only access Super Tails in `Sonic 3 and Knuckles` after collecting both the complete set of Chaos Emeralds and Super Emeralds. (Excuse me if my knowledge is a bit rusty, but I couldn`t take my Genesis - or Megadrive as they call it over here in England - to university.)

Yours, Samanfur the Fox

Thanks ! I'm certain he can use the info.

Hi Sonic HQ,
I have some questions. 1. Who does the Sonic HQ staff like best,? Sonic, Psuedo Sonic, Silver Sonic, Metal Sonic, Cyber Sonic, Evil Sonic, Super Sonic, or Mecha Sonic?

Well of course NOTHING can top the original one and only !!! Psuedo is a wannabe, Silver is a prototype, Metal comes into a CLOSE second, Cyber is a plot device, Evil is a punk, Super ties in with regular cause he's the original - only more powerful, and Mecha is the original gone bad.

2. Can you put up more pictures of Cyber Sonic?

THAT is kinda hard to do. I can think of only ONE other GOOD pic of him due to the fact that he wasn't one of the main characters in Sonic 19 - even IF HE WAS a pivotal plot device. Look for a new pic of him later drawn by art Mawhinney.

3. When I turn into Hyper Sonic in Sonic 3 & Knuckles for Genesis using debug mode he's okay, but when I do it in Sonic Jam, he's glitched, why?

Well debug is basically what it means - Dubugging. Going into something that wasn't meant to be an actual part of the game itself. BUT when I've seen people do the code it never glitched. Maybe its just something about your CD.

4. How on Mob...err.. earth do I get the dark blue Super Emerald in Sonic 3 & Knuckles?! I can only get the spheres surronding the jump spheres!

I cant very well map the course out for you BUT I know someone who already has - Koryan ( One of the best midi makers on the net) has made his "Get Blue Spheres" page as a map depicting how to get the Emeralds. Go to Sonic Island: Get Blue Spheres to find it.

5. Do you guys hope Metal Sonic, Metal Tails, Metal Knuckles, and Silver Sonic get their own action game?

i highly doubt that will EVER happen. Most likely they will continue making appearnces in regular sonic games.

6. Why did Jules and Bernie look so stupid in Sonic Brave new world & look great in other issues?

Let's just say Ken Penders makes a MUCH better writer than drawer for Sonic.....

7. I know how Jules got roboticized, but how did Bernie?

That's a question that hasn't been explored yet but will be, hopefully, in future issues. Most likely, as an assumption, she suffered the same fate as Uncle Chuck did and was caught it the Mobotropolis takeover by Robotnik. However this has not been proven and is only an educated guess.

8. And speaking of Bernie, why did they only show her before she was roboticized in brave new world?

I'm not sure what you meant in that question BUT I think youre saying why did they never show her in regular form instead of roboticised. If thats what it is - Its probably because the storyline at the moment didn't require it. maybe we'll see what she really looks like in the future.

9.Why can't I order Sonic #25 & #19 anymore?

nine times out of ten its probably sold out.

10. Does Amy know that Sonic meet her cousin Rob? And speaking of Rob, what did Sonic mean when he said "You?! But I thought... when Rob told him he sent Amy there?

Sonic hasn't even gotten back to Mobotropolis yet - even though he will in Sonic #68. And as far as that "You" comment - more foreshadowing by Ken Penders...

11. Why did Jules & Bernie lose their 5th fingers when they were roboticized?

Probably an artists mistake that has yet to be picked up on. VERY astute eyes for catcing that.

12. Why did Archie change Jules head in Brave new world from the one in Sonic #46?

Redesigned is a better, and most likely, term - His original head design was a wee bit confusing on the drawing aspect. That OR it just falls back to differing artistic styles...

13. Why are there more execlimation points then pereiods in the comic? Bye.

Think about it like this, Which sounds better? Say these sentences out loud:

OH MY GOSH. LOOK OUT SALLY. THERES A BOMB COMING STRAIGHT FOR YOUR BIG FAT WATERMELON HEAD.

or..... OH MY GOSH! LOOK OUT SALLY! THERES A BOMB COMING STRAIGHT FOR YOUR BIG FAT WATERMELON HEAD!!!!!!

Exclamation points add more impact to sentences in comics rather than periods. It almost makes you more involved with the action taking place.
