Shadow is the ultimate life form... All of the games he's been in were good (except his game & most of Sonic 06 but they improved on who shadow is,) Yes the horrible Sonic 06 made SHADOW better. But the only bad thing is his new voice actor. He has most of Sonic's abilities & CHAOS POWERS! Also he looks & is cool. He should have a bigger role in the games & be playable.
No... just no. Shadow's a well-written character and all, but he's so overrated to the point of my annoyance. In my personal opinion, he should have stayed dead after the events of Sonic Adventure 2. Then again, it's just my opinion.
That aside, personally I prefer Silver over Sonic and Shadow. *shot*
In all seriousness, though, there's just something about Silver that makes him superior to Sonic and Shadow for me. Maybe it's his design, or something else. But I feel that the white hedgehog is underrated, and gets a heap-full of hate. Sure, he first debuted in one of the worst Sonic games of all time, but despite that, there's something so tolerable about him. In fact, Silver's my third favorite Sonic character, right after Knuckles and Tails.
Silver's my favorite of the trio. His sense of justice and willingness to stand for the weak, his courageousness when facing new challenges to save his friends, his goals, his overall design and abilities, and even his awkward naivete just makes him more likeable to me.
Am I the only one who likes Sonic better out of the three? Shadows a little too dark and serious for me, and I'll admit I love Silv, seeing as how he's a major character in one of my stories, but he kind of can get a little annoying when he gets over confident. I know, hypocritical when it comes to liking Sonic more, but Sonic does it with humor and his arrogance and ego just kinda... I dunno, is more funny than Silvers. Plus, Sonic's personality matches mine, and he's really fast. But eh, dats jus me. Silv's great, and Shadzy too, but The Blue Blur is the best to me! Better than the best! Cooler than the rest! And just plain COOL!!!!
Huh. Guess Silver's fan girls/boys have finally left him. ;) I love Shadow, but I just like Sonic better because he's funny, and Shadows pretty kick-mule, but he's just to serious for me. Plus, I think Sega can do a little better and expand his character.
Well, Silver beat Sonic no problem and Shadow's technically done so (although you could say when he did it wasn't canon), so he's out of the question. Shadow and Silver fought each other to a standstill in 06, but by the look of that fight it looks more like Shadow just from sheer experience.
