With the release of its first trailer, the hype for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has exploded, as fans gear up for the surprisingly enjoyable 2020 sequel. But the reaction online was totally different from the first trailer for the original film. Unfortunately, this revealed a hideous semi-realistic design for Sonic, causing such an uproar that Sony returned to the drawing board and recreated the character’s appearance from scratch.
In the full film and its sequel, Sonic therefore appears much more in tune with his video game. In some alternate universes, however, we may have gotten stuck with the original design that thrills the heroic hedgehog through both films. This horribly hilarious fan poster, shared by u / novusanimis on the r / SonicTheHedgehog subreddit, imagine what it would be like if Scary Sonic survived the sequel… and was joined by a Tails from your nightmares.
