Get yourself some NEW Spring Theory Wear!! ►
The Sonic in the new live-action movie is the BEST interaction of the blue hedgehog we've had yet! At least, when it comes to his speed. For all the complaints being leveled at this movie about it's Sonic design and possible plot problems, this is the best showing of Sonic's true speed that we have EVER seen. Over on Game Theory, I've talked in LENGTH about Sonic and his unbelievable abilities and now we have come full circle. Today, we PROVE that movie Sonic is the BEST Sonic!

  • Okay, figuring out just how fast Sonic can go is cool, but. Imma still despise this just for the design. Hollywood could've still done all the cool lightning effects with a more accurate design. I mean.... freaking 'Detective Pikachu' did this better! Does it still look weird? Yes. But at least the makers put the effort in to keep the Pokemon true to their original designs. The Sonic makers can't say that. This movie, regardless of what some people might think, will tank.

  • Okay I get that sonic is fast but he wouldn't speed up gravity right. I mean you can see him hopping from drone to drone and it's not like he's jumping directly in a straight line. He's jumping up and then falling on another drone. But since he doesn't speed up gravity the falling part should take forever right? Or am I just missing something

  • So a few things I just thought of while watching, assuming the information in the video is correct. 1. I am not good with math or physics, but I assume that sonic isn't running that fast right off. Is he accelerating exponentially? If so, how far would he have to travel to reach that speed? Was this mentioned in the theory? What would happen if he just moved that fast right off? But he would have had to accelerate, because there was a 'blur' running, and then the EMP. Right? 2. Looking back at some of the other theories, particularly the 'superman destroys the world' one, would sonic be doing the same thing? He is moving just as fast, I believe. 3. Assuming the the second point is correct, what would happen if he is moving in a 'central' area, instead of in a straight line, like in the drone sequence? Would that take care of all the drones? And he is using 'sonic vision' and makes small little, but very fast movements, like tapping his foot, would that still be a problem? Don't have any answers. Just thought it was interesting. Sorry it was long.

  • I was personally waiting for this episode and just got around to watching it. I was hoping you would talk about the line he says during the bullet time scene, "Oh look at this, I took nine million steps today!". I'm decent at math but not enough to figure this one out. If we have his cannon height, we could find a stride length. Basically from the approximate time of starting the day to the approximate time it is in that scene how fast would he have had to run to get to 9,000,000 steps?
