Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the many franchises featured in LEGO Dimensions for Year 2. It is based on the popular video game series starring the character of the same name, which was originally created by SEGA and Sonic Team.


Sonic the Hedgehog is a blue hedgehog known and named for his ability to run at supersonic speeds. Along with many of his friends like Miles "Tails" Prower, Knuckles the Echidna, and Amy Rose, Sonic's high-speed adventures generally involve him and his friends thwarting the plans of Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik, who uses animals to power his robots. Time and time again, Sonic has saved the world from various threats, and still shows no sign of stopping.
