In the early 1990s, Sega had one big problem: Mario.
The only way Sega could stand up to Nintendo’s golden child was to make a lovable mascot of its own. Unfortunately, Sega of America and Sega of Japan couldn’t agree on the little hedgehog that was supposed to save their company. Sonic the Hedgehog was in limbo.
So Sega of Japan developed a game for Sonic, and Sega of America wrote a 13-page bible outlining all of his origins. These two things didn’t exactly line up.
Because of this discrepancy, I, Brian David Gilbert, can use this holy text to remove nearly every single piece of Sonic media from the Sonic canon. Is this going too far? Absolutely not. We must excise Sonic blasphemy at the root.
