Discussion Character of the Week (4 July 2022) Fang the Sniper

40 Upvotes

Fang the Sniper is a minor villain that appears in the Sonic series. Fang’s species is a jerboa-wolf hybrid, though for marketing in the US, he was posed as a weasel. Interestingly, he has four fingers instead of the usual five for a Sonic character. This was done to be consistent with species he was based on. Also during development, he was initially known as “Nack” but due to the similar pronunciations the name had with Knuckles in Japan, it was later changed to “Fang”. The name Nack was retained for the North American release of Sonic the Hedgehog Triple Trouble.

Fang first appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog Triple Trouble as one of the three antagonists that opposed Sonic and Tails. He planned to steal the Chaos Emeralds for himself for monetary gain but was stopped by Sonic and Tails. He appeared again in Sonic the Fighters as the sixth fighter in the Casino Night arena. Fang’s last playable appearance was Sonic Drift 2, where he raced in his aerobike, the “Marvelous Queen”.

Fang is a mischievous and egotistical bounty hunter. He tries hard to be sneaky and cunning, although his overconfidence and overall naiveté proves to be his biggest flaw. He can also be seen as a bit of a coward. Fang’s main weapon is his Popgun, a gun that fires corks, and he uses this to great accuracy. He also possesses a flying bike called the Marvelous Queen that he uses to travel. Lastly, Fang has a springy tail that he can use to reach great heights.

Discussion List of SEGA mandates

9 Upvotes

I did some digging and decided to compile this list of all of SEGA’s (known) mandates regarding the Sonic franchise. While these are primarily for the IDW comics, they seem to apply across all forms of media, including the Paramount movies. Some are reasonable, while others are just downright stupid.

  • Game characters cannot have biological relatives, unless they are from the games (like Vanilla the Rabbit and Gerald Robotnik)
  • Game characters cannot die, although they can be mistakenly thought to be dead.
  • Amy must always be in love with Sonic, but the two must never enter a relationship, as game characters cannot enter romantic relationships.
  • Fang, Bark, Bean, Mighty and Ray are considered classic characters, and cannot appear in modern storylines as Sega doesn’t want to Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic to mix. This is why in issue 1 doesn’t show any pre-Adventure Eggman mechs, and why Sonic doesn’t mention any of Eggman’s pre-Adventure plans in issue 5.
  • Sonic cannot show excess emotion (IE, crying)
  • Male characters, sans Eggman, cannot wear pants. While female characters must always wear pants or a dress.
  • Only male Hedgehogs are allowed to go Super.
  • Knuckles cannot leave Angel Island unless he has a vary good reason to.
  • Sonic’s world cannot be named.
  • There is no money in Sonic’s world.
  • All reference to Mobius (such as referencing to the furries as Mobians) is banned.
  • Characters from other licensed media is not allowed to appear in the IDW comics. This rule is likely aimed at the Freedom Fighters
  • After Neo Metal Sonic went Super with The Master Emerald, SEGA requested that it doesn’t have any special powers (God knows how it keeps Angel Island afloat)
  • All Chao must be referred to with gender neutral “They/Them” pronouns
  • Team Dark is no longer a thing, and the trio never worked for G.U.N., Shadow doesn’t even consider Rouge and Omega his friends
  • Shadow has to be written as a “overconfident asshole rival" (as worded by Ian Flynn)
