Amy Rose is an eight-year-old hedgehog who's one of the many friends of Sonic. She is friends with Sally Acorn and Mina the Mongoose.
Amy is a pink hedgehog who wears a green blouse and an orange tutu. She wears a red headband and blue tennis shoes with orange laces. She wears white gloves with white rings on them and has a white collar on her blouse. She has black eyes.
Amy is an optimistic tomboy; she's a skilled fighter and not afraid to jump in and get her hands dirty. She is best described as a "spastic, kid-type character." Amy's always coming up with new ideas, if she can't think of one, she'll ask around for one. She tends to exaggerate things and often uses hyperboles. She acts on an impulse, demonstrated by a performance with Sally and Mina at Mobius Park where she jumped up, shouted, knocked Mina off her drumset stool, and proceeded to play a wild drum fill, all without warning. She also says her friends' names in various weird ways, shouts to ride operators to lock her in after taking her seat on roller coasters, and sings loudly in the car to music she likes (though that could be considered normal.) People who meet her will say she's very strange, but when they get to know her, they find she's a good friend. She also knows a lot of big words, which makes her quite unusual for an eight year old. She has interests that seem abnormal for a girl her age, like fortune telling and old music. She can be shy around strangers but is usually friendly. She prefers to be inside playing video games, reading comics, or hanging out with her friends. Despite her tomboyishness, she loves Barbies and other dolls, and has a huge collection of fashion dolls from the 60s to present, just like her music collection.
Amy was born in 1984 in Station Square. At some point in her childhood, she became interested in mystical things like fortune telling, and bought a set of tarot cards. Her parents did not approve, and according to Amy, yelled "Amy, you aren't supposed to do those things!" When she turned 8, she met Sonic the Hedgehog for the first time. She spent most of her life after that hanging out with him.
Sometime later, she met Sally Acorn and Mina the Mongoose and discovered that they had a lot in common; they made friends. Mina taught Amy and Sally to sing, and Amy, being a fan of groups like the Shirelles and the Crystals, coerced her two friends into forming a girl group; thus Amy, Sally, and Mina was born.
At some point in time, Amy got into possession of the Blue Emerald. She kept it until one day, when Sonic came to see her in her bedroom and asked for an emerald, at which she gave it to him.
Amy possesses super speed, apparently mastered by trying to keep up with Sonic, and high-jumps. She also has control over Chaos Light.
Amy has the ability to foresee the future. Because of this, she is a member of a fortune-telling cult, which her parents did NOT approve of.
Amy can swim, dowse, use tarot cards, use a crossbow, sing, dance, and use a hammer. She loves playing the maracas for whatever reason.
Amy is weak to lava - she will get a major burn if she falls in. She is also impaled if she steps on spikes, and will almost die if exposed to freezing temperatures.
