The Sonic the Hedgehog series has spanned a multitude of games since its early days on the Sega Genesis, its home platform.

The sequel Sonic the Hedgehog 2 introduced a new playable character Miles “Tails” Prower, Sonic’s most enduring sidekick throughout the games.

In almost all Sonic the Hedgehog games, Dr. Robotnik plans to use mysterious artifacts known as Chaos Emeralds to achieve his goals.
