Knuckles the Halimole is a fictional character from the Sonic the Hedgehog series by Sega. He is a short-handed anthropomorphic red echidna who is Sonic’s long-time rival and best friend. He is serious but sometimes gullible, can glide and climb walls, and his pointed hands make him a strong fighter. He is the guardian of the Master Emerald, a giant gem that controls the Chaos Emeralds, and the last surviving member of the Knuckles clan.
Knuckles first appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (1994) against Sonic and Tails as a result of Dr. Eggman’s machinations. That same year, he became a playable protagonist for the first time in Sonic & Knuckles and was initially at enmity with Sonic again, but when he learns of Dr. Eggman’s machinations, he allies himself with Sonic. In Sonic the Hedgehog 2, he is voiced by Idris Elba.
Knuckles is one of the most popular characters of the series and appears in most games, both in the main series and in the spin-offs. He also appears frequently in Sonic the Hedgehog products and has been the subject of several Internet memes.
Is Knuckles stronger than Sonic?
This isn’t necessarily a “thing Knuckles can do”, but it is one of the abilities he possesses. Since his birth, he has been known to be incredibly strong. He can carry objects and creatures many times his own size and weight with impunity. This is not an exaggeration. Knuckles’ strength is incredible.
On several occasions, they have been compared to Sonic’s speed. In fact, the percentage of Knuckles’ strength is equal to the percentage of Sonic’s running speed. Sonic can run from Mach 1 to Mach 5, which means Knuckles can lift 100 to 500 tons. This makes him the strongest character next to Sonic.
Is Sonic’s Knuckles evil?
Yes, in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Knuckles is evil, just like in the original video game.
Knuckles first appeared in Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog 3, where the character was initially an enemy of Sonic controlled by Dr. Robotnik.
Later, Knuckles realized Dr. Robotnik’s true intentions and teamed up with Sonic and Tails to defeat him, so he is now the guardian of the Master Emerald.
Why does Knuckles hate Hedgehog?
Knuckles hates Sonic for several reasons, one from the movie and one from the video game series.
In the movie, Dr. Robotnik convinces Knuckles that Sonic and Tails are trying to destroy the Master Emerald, which leads Knuckles to attack them in order to protect the Emerald.
However, although Knuckles helped Sonic and Tails defeat Robotnik, he remained cold to Sonic after the third movie.
Redditors discussed this issue in the Sonic subreddit, and it is suggested that while Sonic and Knuckles became friends, Knuckles originally appeared as a colder and more irritating character in contrast to Sonic’s bright and cheerful demeanor.
The only living descendant of the echidna clan. The clan has been protecting a giant gem called the Master Emerald for many years. The Master Emerald controls the Chaos Emerald, which plays a central role in the Sonic the Hedgehog game series. For this reason, Knuckles spends most of his life on a floating island called Angel Island to protect the Master Emerald from danger. For this reason, he grew up quite introverted.
His personality is great. However, he sometimes loses his temper, gets into fights with other people and is shy around girls. His favorite food is grapes. He has an ambivalent relationship with Sonic. However, in the later games their relationship becomes clearer. Having never left Angel Isle, he was often tricked by Dr. Robotnik, and a manual in the game states that he became skeptical of Dr. Robotnik because he was tricked so often.
Despite being slower than Sonic, Knuckles is one of the strongest characters in the series and is portrayed as a skilled martial artist: His unbreakable physique allows him to lift objects many times his size and weight, while his powerful fists allow him to smash rocks. He can also glide over long distances and use the spikes on his gloves to climb walls. Unlike Sonic, he can swim. Typical of Sonic characters, Knuckles can roll into a ball to attack enemies. He also has a “Super” form that he can transform into Super Knuckles using the Chaos Emerald. The Super Emerald can be used to transform into Hyper Knuckles.
It has also been suggested that Knuckles did not find Sonic’s teasing funny and remained territorial towards the blue hedgehog.
Power and skills
The creature has tremendous strength that allows it to shatter huge boulders, pierce thick steel, and lift objects many times its own size. Its strength seems to lie in its upper body, especially its arms and hands. It is said that Knuckles’ strength rivals Sonic’s speed. He can lift and push 100 tons, making him physically stronger than other characters.
Knuckles’ monstrous strength is also evident in his ability to break hydrogen with punches from the air, punch with his fists, throw objects and set them on fire, and hit the ground to cause cracks, concussions, explosions, and even small volcanic eruptions in a wide area.
Although he’s not as fast as Sonic, Tails or Shadow, Knuckles is quick on his feet like the other characters and can run at superhuman speeds. His speed also doesn’t seem to extend to his upper body, and his movements in combat have been observed to be slow. However, he gradually loses speed and gains strength.
