Team Sonic is the friendship between Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles from the Sonic the Hedgehog fandom.



This section is in need of major improvement. Please help improve this article by editing it.

Sonic and Tails first meet Knuckles at the beginning of Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Knuckles initially thought Sonic and Tails were to steal the Master Emerald, so the echinda took the seven Chaos Emeralds from the hedgehog. At the end of each zone when playing as Sonic (with or without Tails), Knuckles usually pushes a button to let him (them) fall into the next zone. The duo fought Knuckles at the climax of the game. After the Master Emerald has been recovered from Dr. Robotnik, it is implied that that Knuckles no longer hold grudges against Sonic and Tails.

The trio are made into an official team in Sonic Heroes. Throughout the game they go through obstacles, collect rings and other power-ups, and fought against rival teams. Eventually, the teams settle their differences and join forces in defeating Neo Metal Sonic. Team Sonic does the finishing blow to the robotic monstrosity.

They are also an official team in Sonic Riders, Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Sonic Runners, and Team Sonic Racing.

The official Team Sonic in the Sonic Boom universe includes Amy and Sticks, the latter joining the team after Shattered Crystal. For the purpose of this article, this section will focus only on Sonic, Tails and Knuckles in said universe.

In "Battle of the Boy Bands", fangirls of the unnamed village fell under the spell of Justin Beaver. Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles formed Dreamboat Express to match Justin's talents and to find the cause of fangirling in the first place. After restoring the fangirls to normal, Knuckles changed the boy-band name to Dude-itude.

In "Planes, Trains and Dude-Mobiles" they were on request to perform a concert on the other side of the island. After a series of mishaps along the way, it is revealed that their supposed venue is empty and they were one month early.

The trio babysat Lady Walrus's son Chumley in "Three Men And My Baby!".

Sonic Mania Adventures

Classic Knuckles does not seem to care about Classic Sonic and Tails throughout the short series. In "Metal Mayhem", the echidna walks away with the Master Emerald with his eyes closed passing the hedgehog, the two-tailed fox, Ray, and Mighty.


Sonic and the Secret Rings

Sonic with Ali Baba and Sinbad (Tails and Knuckles's alternate reality doppelgängers from the world of the Arabian Nights)

  • When Sonic met Tails and Knuckles' doppelgängers of the World of the Arabian Nights, Ali Baba and Sinbad the Sailor, who are friends in with one another, he saved them on two separate occasions.
  • When Sonic needed help to deal with Ifrit, Ali Baba tells him about his friend Sinbad and how he needs Sonic's help to save him from pirates.
  • Ali Baba is present when Sonic frees Sinbad from the cage, and stops them from fighting with one another.
  • At the end of the game, Sinbad and Ali Baba aid Sonic on his next journey to find away back to his home world. Along with making sure that the Erazor Djinn is never freed from his lamp again.

Sonic and the Black Knight

  • Like in Sonic and the Secret Rings, Sonic confuses the Blacksmith and Sir Gawain for his world's doppelgängers of Tails and and Knuckles.

Since the release of Sonic Heroes, artwork featuring the trio began to surface. A DeviantArt fanclub has been set up for the group since late 2012. Art featuring them as the boy-band Dreamboat Express and Dude-itude are also popular.
