Freak-Out Friday: Why Knuckles Never Goes Super Anymore

Though Knuckles may be rougher than the rest of them, not even the blood of his ancestors can shield his sensitive soul.

Come on, who says pink isn’t manly? Honestly!


Do yourselves a favour next time you play Sonic 3 & Knuckles: choose Knuckles. Get the Chaos Emeralds.

Let him know you care.

  1. Viz is writing articles for Sonic Stadium?

    This is the start of something amazing. I know it.

  2. That’s actually funny, I just watched it, before even going on this website.

  3. Congratulations on new “rank” Jeff. I must say I am a bit jelous since we met way before you became a writer here.

  4. Haha, but Super Knuckles was never pink in the video games – his body just pulsed bright every now and then. Derp.

  5. Too much shakycam, but those facial expressions… XD

    Gah, every last one of them was hilarious. You definitely have a talent, Alex.

  6. Thanks for the constructive criticism, guys! This video was mainly a test to see what I was able to do with the programs I had at the time. I didn’t have an animation software or a drawing tablet… So I tried to make do with what I had. The shakycam was mainly used to simulate that they were on a floating platform in the lava, but I can see how it’s a bit much. I’m honestly surprised THAT’S the main complaint and not the voices. Looking back, I really should have redone the voices for my second upload… At least the Sonic lines. I was a bit sick when I initially recorded them, but I didn’t bother recording them again as I wanted to get the video out before I left for vacation that month. Totally regret that, and that’s something I’ll never do again. I’m taking a long break from making these animations, and in this time, I’m going to get a hold of much better programs and tools to really improve my work by leaps and bounds. When I come back full force, I want there to be a remarkable difference between the Super Knuckles video and my new stuff. Once again, thanks everyone, and a big thanks to Jeff. Once again, I really appreciate it, man. Congrats on the new position. I know you’ll do a fantastic job! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Great debut article, Vizard! Looking forward to seeing more from you! And Alexander, you did a great job! I got a huge laugh out of it. Keep up the good work! Thanks to you both! : )

  8. Wow,that was the worst piece of **** I’ve ever seen. Skip to 2:40 or completely..

  9. Even though i watched it before it came to freaky friday, i can just watch this over and over again. Also cannot wait for the sonic smarties series return too.

  10. If only Super Knuckles were actually pink.
    I’ve had to SHOW so many ppl that he’s not actually pink and to not automatically agree that he is just because the majority has said it so much it got beaten into their heads as fact. haha

    Truth is, if Super Knuckles is pink, then Super Sonic is vanilla.

  11. Knuckles is more of a faded red like my car. There was an old jokey Sonic CD article about 20 years ago about a green Super Tails?

    I miss Hyper Sonic, all the colours of the rainbow.

    1. I never liked hyper Sonic. If I looked at him too much, i felt my eyes and head hurting :/. There’s a reason why SEGA got rid of hyper Sonic…SEIZURES.
