— Amy Rose
Amy Rose is Sonic's self-proclaimed girlfriend. Although she's not part of the Knothole Freedom Fighters, she still sees plenty of action. Mostly, she's like her canon counterpart, but with some minor differences. For other possible love interests, go here.

Like her canon counterpart, Amy has little backstory to speak of. She was just frolicking through the Great Forest, unaware that a mad doctor had taken over Mobius. Then, while doing a tarot reading one day, she learned that she was to have a fateful encounter with Sonic the Hedgehog, and the rest is history.
Amy's personality mirrors that of her canon counterpart. The only difference is that she's even more hyper. Really, though, is that even possible with her?
Unlike Sonic, Tails, Knuckles & other characters who were introduced during the "Classic" era, Amy looks like her modern design in this era, mainly because she's 12. And unlike her canon counterpart, she never spouted four extra years. Also, in "Sonic's Weird Birthday" and "Wir sind Menschen", she wore a red cheerleader's outfit instead of her usual dress.
Amy still has super speed, the Spin Jump, Spin Dash and all the standard abilities she had in the games. And of course, she can still do all those wonderful hammer-based attacks. Being a hedgehog, she also possesses Hedgehog Sense.
Items & weapons
Once again, Amy has her Piko Piko Hammer to help her in combat. Aside from being a weapon, she uses it as a comedic prop against people who tick her off.
Amy kicks off by glomping Sonic as he's traveling to Eggopolis with Tails & Knuckles. When Tails questions their relationship, she whacks him with the Piko Piko Hammer. After he recovers, the trio keeps going with Amy in pursuit. However, she loses them after they get teleported. She finally catches up to Sonic when he gets back to Knothole.
Amy glomps Sonic yet again, only for it to be an impostor who is very fond of Amy – too fond. She escapes his advances, only to encounter a squadron of stealthbots heading for Knothole. Using some well-timed hammer jumps, Amy wrecks that squadron. When the attack is over, she heads to Knothole and confronts the real Sonic, thinking that it was he who was responsible for attempting to have his way with her.
During a tarot reading, Amy learns that Sonic is in trouble, so she comes to Knothole and asks Sally where Sonic is. Sally claims that he's gone out, but won't tell her exactly where. Frustrated, she keeps looking and finds Tails at Azure Lake Zone just as he’s about to hop in the Tornado 2. Seeing that he has some Mobian Dragonflowers, Amy thinks that Tails is in love with her, but Tails says they're for Sonic, causing her to think that he's gay for Sonic. Finally, when Tails tells her that Sonic has been poisoned, she freaks out and heads back to Knothole, where she embraces him tightly after he recovers. With Sonic back to normal, she follows him to Robotnik's HQ and destroys the control panel to the Atomic Decoupler using her Piko Piko Hammer.
Like Sonic's other friends, Amy has caught the Super Changin' Muscle Rangers bug – probably more so than anybody else. She's collected a truckload of merchandise and even written fanfiction based on the show. When Amy learns about the kidnapping of the Muscle Rangers stars, she joins Shadow, Rouge & Antoine in attempting to rescue them, but she ends up being captured, too. Fortunately, Sonic & the rest of the gang end up rescuing her. Afterwards, she expresses her love of the show to Amy Sutherland (the actress who plays Amy Hartman – the pink Muscle Ranger. That’s a lotta Amys, right?) As it turns out, Ms. Sutherland also writes fanfic and hopes that they can get together some time.
After Sonic's other friends have gone home, Amy – who hasn’t gotten the memo – enters Robotnik's headquarters using a fake appointment card. She rewards Robotnik with hotcakes because she thinks he’s a nice guy deep down inside. However, he gets mad at Amy and tries to attack her, but she escapes. In the "Sonic Says" segment, Amy gets a gift from Sonic, which turns out to be tickets to a Nikki Gregoroff concert. She is very impressed and gives Sonic a hug + kiss.
Given her love for Sonic, Amy does her best to impress him on his birthday, and she does this by organizing a small parade for him, with some help from Cream, of course. Naturally, when The Man arrives, Amy gives him a hug + kiss. Contrary to her expectations, Sonic doesn't want to be in the parade with her. However, after Amy & Cream give him a little guilt trip, he relents. Amy spends the parade with her arm wrapped around him, waving to an invisible crowd. Suddenly, Robotnik & Snively show up and attempt to ruin the parade. Amy hits Sonic with her Piko Piko Hammer while he’s curled into a ball, destroying the Eggmobile's attachments once again. Much to her dismay, Sonic doesn't stick around for much longer.
However, the parade comes to Knothole eventually, where Amy congratulates Sonic on the new statue. Then, when Rouge accidentally puts Ol' Blue into a trance, Amy threatens to pound her silly. This is also the first (and thus far only) time that Ms. Rose uses the nickname "Sonikku" in any of BearfootTruck's stories.
Amy also decides to get gifts for Shadow and Rouge on their birthdays, specifically an ice cream maker and a Crock-Pot, her reasoning being that they don't usually have time to cook and that they could follow it up with a tasty treat after supper. Later, at the birthday party, she is the first to notice Sonic and Tails ' arrival. Amy is also the first to give Shadow and Rouge their presents, barring Mephiles . She even serves as the flag girl for the motocross race between Sonic, Tails, Shadow and Rouge.
Amy makes a minor appearance in this story, where she too has joined The Wave along with Cream despite not being old enough to go to high school. Initially, she is proud to be a member of the movement and questions Sonic and Tails when they try to dissuade her and Cream from it. Nevertheless, she agrees to look up the Tedescan Civil War. Presumably, she has moved on from The Wave after the police showdown at James F. Charleston High School, albeit heartbroken.
Amy – like Sonic's other friends – is in attendance at the International Festival of Community. She agrees with Sonic's statement about Knuckles and Rouge not arguing and also expresses her happiness about meeting Hope and tells her about being Sonic's girlfriend, much to his dismay. She also smacks Shadow for referring to Cream as a "pest" and tells him that she couldn't make it to the concert due to a school recital she had.
