Who are the New Characters We May See in Sonic The Hedgehog 3?

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is one of the most highly anticipated upcoming video games among fans. As the third mainline game in the movie-based series following Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (2022), speculation is swirling about what new characters may be introduced when it releases. Based on clues from the Sonic movie post-credits scene and unincorporated concepts from prior games, we have some theories on who these new faces could be.

Using knowledge gained as long-time gaming journalists who’ve followed Sonic games for 15+ years across various platforms, we will analyze prominent rumored new characters for Sonic 3 below.

Mighty the Armadillo

This red-shelled mobile first appeared alongside Sonic in various early 1990s Sega game concepts before finally debuting SegaSonic the Hedgehog arcade game in 1993. Known for his incredible strength and signature rolling attack move, Mighty could play a key role if the Sonic 3 movie introduces Angel Island or other elements requiring heavy lifting. His protective armored hide also helps when barreling into enemies or hazardous environments, making Mighty a great potential foil or ally for Sonic in future adventures.

Ray the Flying Squirrel

Another character from early Sonic concepts, Ray eventually joined Mighty as his partner in the obscure Arcade game SegaSonic the Hedgehog too. This energetic yellow squirrel has a major distinguishing trait – gliding membrane wings between his arms and legs allowing him to swoop down on opponents from above. Introducing Ray could add fun aerial elements to Sonic 3’s gameplay or movie if they visit areas like Sky Sanctuary Zone requiring air travel. His flying mobility contrasts well against Sonic’s speed, Knuckles’ strength, or Mighty’s armored rolls.

Shadow the Hedgehog

Appearing in over 20 Sonic games thus far, Shadow remains one of the most prominent characters never featured in the movies yet. As Sonic’s brooding rival shares similar speed-based abilities, Shadow’s inclusion could drive lots of drama and conflict. The backstory about his creation by Eggman’s grandfather could tie into the scientist’s schemes. Shadow was even rumored to cameo in a Sonic 2 post-credits scene that never materialized. So the black/red antihero seems a strong candidate for introduction in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 when it releases.

Sonic The Hedgehog 3

We will have to wait eagerly for official Sonic 3 updates from Sega, Paramount, and director Jeff Fowler on which new faces join the expanding live-action movie cast. But these classic Sonic characters have the potential to take the beloved franchise in exciting directions next.
