Importance in historyEdit
Sonic has proven himself one of the four faces of gaming, him heading the face of rivals and challengers. the reason this is so is because the only non-nintendo character to ever outsell Mario in a war was Sonic himself. He was the first to rival the Nintendo juggernaut, and cleared the path for more to follow. Sonic has won many rewards, and is the best selling non-nintendo franchise when counting spin-offs. During the 16-Bit war, Sonic proved the best selling franchise, and was the reason Sega led the war with a 65% lead. Sonic's absence on consoles also have negative results. Sega Saturn, the successor to the Mega Drive/Genesis, lacked a proper Sonic title, and as such, Sega bled out till' they only owned 12% of the market share. When Sonic reappeared at the helm of the Dreamcast's launch, the Dreamcast hit world records for launch sales in America, with Sonic Adventure still having positive feedback.
