Do you know who created the Chaos Emeralds? Chaos? Solaris? Dark/Light Gaia?
If you answered any of the above, you are probably wrong. And that’s not just my chipper, nihilistic self saying that, it’s also Ian Flynn, writer for IDW’s Sonic the Hedgehog comic and veteran of Archie’s Sonic the Hedgehog comic. On the latest BumbleKast podcast, host Kyle Crouse presented those four gods as possible origin theories in a Q&A, to which Flynn responded:
“I’m going to have to back out of this one too, because, again, I know things, and those things I cannot talk about as of right now. Suffice to say, none of those are right.”Ian Flynn — BumbleKast April 26, 2021 – 18:58
Afterwards, Crouse playfully reminds us the creators of the emeralds were Yuji Uekawa, Naoto Oshima, and Yuji Naka.
The mystery remains, though we’ve at least expanded our process of elimination. Indeed, who could have created the magical gems? Loki, god of Mischief? The eternal dragon Shenron? Some sort of chaotic chromium and hundreds of millions of years of intense heat and pressure? Wentos? I’m not saying it’s Wentos. I’m totally not saying it’s Wentos.
But it’s definitely Wentos.
