Hi everyone it’s me JorDanGo, if you follow my page you should know about my Sonic characters spin off ideas (jordango.deviantart.com/art/My…). So I decided to go make different entries for each spin off idea go more in depth with the ideas, using both new ideas and some feedback from
. And for this series of spin off ideas I’ll have a few categories- Story, Gameplay, Characters, Setting, and Finale.
Today we’ll be doing Sonic’s antihero rival Shadow the Hedgehog.
Shadow has been working at GUN for some time now alongside his comrades Rouge the Bat and Omega the robot, ever since he was hired by GUN after the Black Arms invasion years ago. One day the GUN commander called team Dark into his office and briefs them on the new mission he has for them, he shows them files of on various scientists who after finding out about Project Shadow have tried to replicate Professor Gerald’s experiment and create their own ultimate life forms, along with people have been mutated by chaos emerald energy and gained super powers, and mysterious sightings of aliens. GUN views all these as potential threats so the commander orders team Dark to track and take down these targets, the team agrees but one file catches Shadow’s interest, it was a file on a young girl related to Eggman named Hope Robotnik who looks a lot like Maria.
You’ll be able to play as all 3 members of team Dark- Shadow, Rouge and Omega.
• Shadow- Shadow would play like he does in Sonic Adventure 2 with the addition of combat abilities and various chaos attacks. I’ll also include weapons since I’m one of the few people who don’t have a problem with that since I figure there is a limit on how much chaos energy he could use. The way the chaos powers and weapons will coexist would be like how in Jak 2 and 3 you have the weapons alongside with the light and dark Jak transformations.
• Rouge- Rouge would play like she does in Sonic Adventure 2 combined with stealth gameplay in the Sly Cooper series, her levels would focus on finding information and sneaking through villain’s lairs.
• Omega- pretty much like how he does in heroes combined with gamma’s gameplay form Adventure 1. He would also have elements of giant Clank from Ratchet and Clank alongside a large variety of super destructive weapons.
• GUN HQ
o Shadow the Hedgehog- Shadow is the genetically engineered ultimate life form created by Gerald Robotnik and now works at GUN. He tends to be broody and serious but at the same time is idealistic and cares for people and will fight to keep his dead friend Maria’s wish for world peace. He also has a bit of an ego and is over confident in his abilities on account of being “the Ultimate Life Form”.
o Rouge the Bat- Rouge is a sly and sassy jewel thief and treasure hunter who now works for GUN. She is greedy and vain and hates it when people deny her whatever she wants, but she still has a conscience and does care for her friends.
o Omega- Omega is an overly destructive robot built by Robotnik who rebelled and went on to join GUN. He desires to destroy all of Robotnik’s robots to prove himself as the superior creation, he also just has a great love for destruction and usually want to go for the most violent solution to any situation he comes across.
o GUN Commander- the stoic leader of GUN, is stern and holds a lot of secrets.
o Porker Lewis- nerdy and kind of cowardly pig who builds most of GUNs weapons, gadgets and vehicles.
There’s GUN HQ as the base of operations but other than that I haven’t thought much about the different levels in this game.
Shadow has defeated all the different chaos experiments and mutants, and befriended Hope Robotnik. He just has one experiment left to fight, this one was actually made by one of the Space Colony Arc scientists who managed to escape the execution of the crew and replicated Shadow, making this one the closest to Shadow. After defeating the faker Shadow returns to HQ and everyone celebrates their victory, but meanwhile some surviving Black Arm aliens reveal their new creation to challenge Shadow “Eclipse the Darkling” setting up the sequel.
And that was my idea for a Shadow Spin off game, let me know what you thought in the comments and next time I’ll cover the Blaze the Cat.
