The biggest problem with that is that unlike Super Saiyan, the capabilities of Super Sonic aren't really defined. Unlike DBZ which focuses on the fighting capabilities, the Sonic series really doesn't. It'd be hard to say what exactly Sonic's normal and Super capabilities even are. It gets even more complicated when you get into Chaos energy, as it's limits aren't exactly defined. If we were to look at SSJ4 (since you're using GT Goku) and compare it to Super Sonic by basic rules, Super Sonic would win by default due to how broken Chaos energy is. Super Sonic Chaos Control gives the ability to freeze time, change time, teleport from dimension to dimension, Super Sonic alone is nearly invunerable, and the form increases his already insane speed, gives him incredible strength, he pretty much becomes Superman for a short time. But once again, Chaos Energy isn't defined well and it's hard to know what it's limits are.
It is quite defined in the several Sonic comic series, (go read it btw) But in Archie Sonic, Super Sonic is like... Universe Destroyer level. Even Multiverse, maybe. He took several Universe ending blasts, and went so fast, he broke a multiverse.so um... yeah
I make death battles not only to debate, but to learn more about each character. ^^
So I know this is going to seem hypocritical because I'm probably the only person on this site who adores a few characters that are in this vague bracket of strength, but... for what purpose? Just for the sake of wowing the audience? I mean, I'm okay with that some of the time, but this seems almost like the writer was pulling stuff from his rear to win arguments about which character was stronger than which.Then again, Ken Penders.Luka, this is a really shitty way to learn about characters. In this types of threads, people will almost always skew information to play up their personal favorites in the hopes of winning a silly internet argument. If you want to learn about the characters, just dive into the source material. You probably won't even get accurate secondhand knowledge from a lot of people through these kinds of threads.I can usually provide accurate information for these types of things because I don't really care who wins in a fight and I've given up seriously engaging in these threads long ago after a 60+ page Goku Vs Superman thread about three years ago. However, I have to know what I'm talking about and my knowledge is generally limited to a handful of video games and anime/manga along with characters from Marvel and DC's shared universes. (most of the other western comics I've read aren't action-oriented series, for the record) I've got a few other areas of expertise for miscellaneous series, though.
I never said I liked what they did with Sonic, I am just saying the comics show what Super Sonic can do. Though, I find myself finding that comic with Sonic's evil Super Sonic counterpart a lot more than archie. I liked Archie at first.
To be fair, all that "Super Sonic busting multiverses" asspull is only in the comics, and in no way exists outside of that series, nevermind it being even more ridiculous than GT's power scaling. Ken Penders' writing was a joke, and frankly, Super Sonic is most definitely not that powerful in any other continuity.I'd bring up the simple fact that the comics are non-canon, but seeing as how this references GT, that's obviously a moot point.In other words, if it was in the Archie comics? You can safely ignore it. Dr. Slump's "power scaling" was more consistent, and that was a gag series.
The problem with using game Sonic in terms of "canon" is that the Archie Comics actually have a more defined timeline and story. You can argue which Sonic games are supposed to be in order and how each game ties in, but the games themselves don't really give those ties and there's no form of timeline, especially beyond the Adventure era. Each Sonic game could be a continuation of the next, or a prequel, or years ahead, or a different timeline altogether, and every single one of those options would be just as likely. Due to being a game franchise based on platforming, canon just doesn't matter that much to the developers, so it wasn't really a focus. So trying to put Sonic versus any form of canon character is kinda difficult, as it would be really hard to make one beyond his very basic abilities. Heck, even his speed varies between games. And once again there's Chaos Control, with very little info at to it's potential limits.Simply put, Sonic is a terrible character to face off against anyone, because it's near impossible to get any defined version. Sonic was not meant to be someone used in technical matches, he's a video game character who runs really fast, and that's it
That's actually a pretty good statement on the character.Spoiler for Hidden: Especially when stuff like this happens: Of course, by the same token, the comics tried to hard to mix the SatAM series with the games, and ultimately satisfied neither fanbase. To make matters worse, Sonic's own height becomes wildly inconsistent (while in the games he's reported as 3'3-3'4, he was constantly depicted at being normal human height, particularly during moments like the adaption of Sonic Adventure).And then there was Ken Penders'... well, anything. Eugh... *shivers in fear*
