Original Team Sonic by songosai Original Team Sonic by songosai
Drew this last month but didn't upload it anywhere else except in blogs.

If you've played Sonic Heroes, you go in teams of three. I thought about the current Team Sonic (Sonic, Tails and Knuckles) and wondered whatever happened to Sonic's first two teammates. Before Sonic the Hedgehog 2, there was an arcade game that featured Sonic with Ray the Squirrel and Mighty the Armadillo (who you see later in Knuckles' Chaotix.) This game never made it to any console, sadly. Anyways, I'm just paying a little homage to the first Team Sonic.

Well, if you think about it logically, no matter how fast Sonic is, he can't be everywhere at once, and there's more than one villain in any world. Think about it a bit.

There was an arcade game that came out before Sonic the Hedgehog 2 that featured these three, that's why I said 'original' Team Sonic.

There was an arcade came called 'SegaSonic' I think. It came out before Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and had Ray the Squirrel and Mighty the Armadillo. Mighty showed up again in Knuckles Chaotix, but that's the last we've seen of him. ;__;

Well actually the whole thing about it is, Mighty and Ray are part of Knux crew the Chaotix, all they really are to Sonic is friends/allies...

It's a shame that game didn't come out for a platform, but regardless most of the different chars in Sonic have been along his side at one point or another, the biggest thing about it all though is that Sonic is normally alone in his missons, or at least he goes off alone, its just a now and again thing where he forms teams to do certain missons.

ray got renamed in the comics to "shorty" (cud be a nickname) and he teamed up with Amy (and another comic exclusive)

i recomend the comics ther not amazing but they was based on the old school sonics rather than starting new continuity
