i love the sonic the hedgehog naming convention:

Sonic: named in honor of his speed
Eggman: named after his round, egg-like body
Knuckles: named after his large notable knuckles
Amy: Amy is a girl's name (Amy is a Girl)

tails: he has two tails
shadow: dark and cool like a shadow
rouge: BAT with TITS

@lynnesbian Rouge: named after makeup, a thing that girls use (Rouge is a girl)

Every so often someone finds this post and I remember that I once declared my brand to be "bat with tits".

Honestly it's not a bad brand.

lewd observation 

@mood honestly, I just realized looking at the image that this bat has one hand waving cheerfully while the other one is going right down to her crotch and this just feels like a mood.

@lynnesbian its true she does have tits. also all the world's gems are her's to keep

big cat: he is a big cat
vector the crocodile: his name is vector and he is a crocodile

@picklemaddierix big the cat excuse me my brain is working on 20%

@Tasnyx fuck now i cant stop thinking about what a terrible name "vector the crocodile" is

@picklemaddierix listen, his name is vector, he is a crocodile, what more do you want? he is a good man he works as a private detective completely pro bono and doesnt trust the cops

@Kat thats honestly better!! though i guess she didn't have the hammer in her first appearance

@picklemaddierix i also have a hammer

,,, do you wanna see

(note: i do not actually have a hammer)

@Che5hire @Kat according to the sonic wiki it looks like Rosy is some sort of evil amy doppelganger. it's too bad cuz Rosy is a much better sonic character's name!

@picklemaddierix @eightbitsamurai Shadow because he’s edgy af. Silver because he’s...silver.

@picklemaddierix i love this post so much maddie, i do big hooting real life laughs every time i see it again, thank you

@picklemaddierix Cream: named afte- *I am taken out by a sniper*

@picklemaddierix I don't know if Blaze is poorly named or not... Blaze is a cat with fire powers kitty. 😊

...did they name her that because she's hot? Also a girl? 🤔

@MadestMadness im going to give them the benefit of the doubt and say its the first

@picklemaddierix I could have been far worse, they could have called her "Tits"

@picklemaddierix sonic characters entire character designs are weirdly gendered. Like how only girls wear clothes

@picklemaddierix @red Two more examples of the top of my head:

Tails: has several tails
Rouge: uh, rouge makeup is an important thing to goth girls maybe (?), because she’s a girl and a bat so probably goth (?), idk I didn’t pay enough attention to goth girls in school, just ship it

@picklemaddierix @red

Relatedly, I love how Tails is the only one with a proper full name (Miles “Tails” Prower, lol) rather than the Grecian “the Species” thing. His name would suggest he’s the weird Marty Stu self-insert character, but after Sonic and Eggman/Robotnik he’s basically the third oldest character in the canon from long before Sonic even had stories to fan fic 🤣
