Silver the Hedgehog Shocking Facts
Hey guys! Welcome back to Top 10 Gaming, I’m Ron McKenzie-Lefurgey. You guys have been asking for a video about
Silver, and I aim to please. While he’s somewhat controversial to some
since he was introduced in everyone’s least favourite game, Sonic 06, personally I think
he’s awesome, so let’s hop right in! If you enjoy this, check out yesterday’s
video on the Fastest Sonic Villains! Now get ready, it’s time for the Top 10
Shocking Facts about Silver the Hedgehog! Number 10: He has Psychokinesis. This is definitely pretty well-known, but
not everyone watching this video will be familiar with him, so I think it’s important to get
out of the way. Silver is one of the most magic-focused Sonic
characters, able to manipulate the environment around him with his mind. He can move things, throw things, and even
compress many objects together to make a massive projectile, using his Meteor Smash ability. He can use it as a limited form of telepathy,
use it to fly, and can even teleport short distances by warping space. Most importantly, he can use chaos control
to open time portals to travel through time. Which he does a lot. Not too shabby. Number 9: His powers were based on the game. Sonic 06 was using a new physics engine, and
developers used it to create stages with multiple ways to complete them. In an attempt to add more variety to the player,
rather than just running quickly through every level, they introduced silver with his psychokinetic
powers. A lot of people saw this as Sonic heresy,
but personally I thought it was an interesting addition. Too bad there were so many other things wrong
with the game. Number 8: He’s a Fly type. Some people who aren’t super well-read in
Sonic may assume that everyone’s just fast and stuff, but that’s not true. There are actually 3 main ability types: Speed
type, like Sonic and Shadow, Power Type like Knuckles and Big, and Fly type, like Tails
and, well, Silver. Fly type characters are represented by the
colour yellow in game. This is less of a shocking fact, and more
of a way to explain a certain mechanic to non-sonic fans. In the words of Professor Quirrel, “Just
thought you ought to know.” Number 7: Conflicting backstories for the
game. It seems the writers couldn’t quite get
the story straight for Sonic 06. On the website, it said he came from the future
to the present, but learned that the future could be destroyed so he fights to save it. In the game guide, it was implied that he
started in the present, finds himself in the future, learns that the future might be destroyed,
and tries to change it. Then in the game, he comes from a destroyed
future, and goes back to the past to change it. Yikes. I can’t believe they’d make a mistake
in that gem of a game! Number 6: He’s voiced by Daisuke Ono in
the Japanese versions (dye-su-keh). Much of the flak Silver gets is for his voice
acting in the Sonic 06 game. Not gonna lie, it was pretty sub-par. The voice itself was pretty good, but the
lines sounded kinda forced at times. But in the Japanese version, Silver was voiced
by Daisuke Ono, best known as the voice of Sebastian Michaelis in Black Butler. And he just kills it, I really dig his interpretation,
and even though I don’t understand Japanese, it still feels more natural to me than the
English version with Pete Capella. To Capella’s credit though, he does get
better in future games. Number 5: He stepped on a whole bunch of toes
in the comics. Silver wasn’t so popular with Sonic and
pals when he was first introduced in the Archie comics. In this story, he learned that his future
was destroyed by a traitor inside the Freedom Fighters, so he went back to figure it out. But after accusing three different people
and being wrong, they started to get tired of the guy who just came to point fingers
and pick fights. Thankfully, he eventually learned that, spoilers! … Sally was the traitor, but hadn’t done
it intentionally, so all was well. Number 4: He was raised by mammoth Mogul. Silver’s story in the Archie comics is pretty
interesting, and probably the craziest thing is that he was raised by a future version
of Mammoth Mogul, one of the big baddies in the comics. Thankfully, double M had already more or less
hung up his villain cap, but his teachings weren’t exactly as squeaky clean as others
would have liked. Speaking of… Number 3: He was mentored by a relative of
Knuckles. Silver’s education didn’t stop with Mammoth
Mogul. Another important teacher of his was Edmund,
a distant relative of Knuckles from the future. Edmund taught Silver about Chaos energy, and
trained him to be cunning in battle. Edmund didn’t approve of Silver’s relationship
with Mammoth Mogul, calling him “a sad sack of lies”. Savage. But, fairly accurate. Number 2: His top quills weren’t based on
the marijuana leaf. Some fans have theorized that Silver’s quills
were supposed to look like a marijuana leaf, but the real inspiration was a lot more child-friendly. Turns out they were based on the Japanese
Red Maple Leaf, And as a Canadian, there will always be a place in my heart for any maple-leaf,
Canadian or not. Awesome. Number 1: He was almost a mink. Silver changed quite a bit during development,
and one iteration that ultimately didn’t pan out was that of Venice the Mink. Venice was supposed to have orange fur and
have futuristic headgear. I couldn’t find an official picture, but
the fan art makes it look pretty cool. Venice was eventually scrapped because developers
didn’t think the mink would fit in with the other characters. Personally, I think he’s good as a hedgehog,
but I think it would be cool to throw a new kind of animal into the Sonic world. That’s it for today! Hope you guys enjoyed, if you did please smack
