Leader of Team Sonic
Sonic the Hedgehog is a 15-year-old anthropomorphic blue hedgehog and the fastest thing alive. He has constantly gone through islands such as South Island, Westside Island, and Angel Island to save them from the mad scientist, Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik. He would later find himself fighting nearly god-like beings known as Chaos, Dark Gaia, the Time Eater, and the Deadly Six. He is the leader of Team Sonic which is a trio of heroes including his best friend Miles "Tails" Prower and close friend Knuckles the Echidna who frequently team up to fight against Eggman. He has many other friends including characters such as Tails, Amy Rose, Knuckles, Silver the Hedgehog, Blaze the Cat, and Cream the Rabbit. He has also formed rivalries with Metal Sonic, Shadow the Hedgehog, and Jet the Hawk. Upon collecting the 7 Chaos Emeralds, he can transform into Super Sonic.
Sonic was briefly seen running across the Green Hill Zone retrieving a Chaos Emerald for Tails. As soon as he arrived at Tails' Lab, he discovered that Tails, Big the Cat, Knuckles, Amy and Shadow were captured by Doctor Eggman, who also stole the other 6 Chaos Emeralds; Sonic freed his friends shortly afterwards. However, following Doctor Eggman's mistake of activating the Keystone (which led his friends--minus Tails--, Eggman himself and the other remaining Chaos Emeralds sucked into portals), Sonic then asked Tails for a plan and went to different areas in his world to claim the other Emeralds and find his other friends. After claiming all of the Emeralds and successfully defeating both Doctor Eggman and Chaos, Sonic and Tails went into a portal, to rescue Amy. This leaves their fate currently unknown.
- Grind Rails
- Super Strength
- Super Transformation (Jump and then press interact button to activate)
- He is voiced by Roger Craig Smith, who has voiced him in the Sonic Boom animated series and all Sonic video games released since 2010.
- In-game, due to Sonic's fear of water, he wears a life jacket and swims using backstrokes.
- In beta versions of the game, he also wore a scuba mask; this was removed in the final version.
- If you move fast enough while on water as Sonic, he will run on the water's surface instead of swimming. This is required during certain races.
- He is the third video game character, representing the franchise with the same name. The other video game characters are: Chell from Portal 2, Gamer Kid representing Midway Arcade, and Chase McCain from LEGO City: Undercover.
- Sonic's reveal (taking the One Ring from Gollum) is a reference to Rings being the main collectibles in his games (similar to studs in LEGO games).
- Interestingly with the Sonic the Hedgehog Red Brick, all studs are replaced with Rings as a nod to that fact.
- Sonic, Harley Quinn, Chase McCain, Marceline, Excalibur Batman, Blossom and Bubbles are the only characters with the Super Strength ability that cannot use Super Strength Handles.
- Sonic is able to transform into Super Sonic by completing his level and collecting a specific amount of Studs/Rings.
- When Sonic dies, rather than breaking into pieces he'll die like he does in the Classic games; facing the camera, arms and legs straight out, and a surprised look on his face while falling in front of all the art (or in this game, phasing right through the ground.)
- Sonic, along with Doctor Eggman, make cameos as parade balloons in a Ghostbusters (2016) level and in the Adventure World.
- Doctor Eggman is a boss while Sonic is the solution to the boss and a renovation project. When the Sonic balloon is inflated and the PKE puzzle is solved, he will jump on top of the Doctor Eggman balloon, revealing his weak points.
- Sonic also makes a cameo in the commercial for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Story Pack, where Sonic is thought to be the beast that the main character (Newt Scamander) in the series was looking for.
- He even reacts to him in the game as well.
- Sonic's toy tag consists of the Sonic Team logo's Sonic icon, his name in Sonic the Hedgehog font and the background of his toy tag is Green Hill Zone, however, in yellow.
- When using The Tornado, Sonic will ride on the top wing while Tails pilots the plane.
- Sonic is the first (and only) character to be able to turn into a super form, curl into a ball and use spin dash (Not counting Jake's zorb transformation), use the air dash to zero in on enemies, and have a custom death of his own.
- Most of his lines or his idle animations make a reference of all his video-games and anything related to his franchise.
- One of his idle animations features him taking a nap and dreaming about his 16-bit Genesis form, probably because of the release being on his 25th anniversary and the fact that Sonic is always rather impatient.
- Another is Sonic looking at his wrist and stamping his foot. This is a reference to the original idle animations in the original 1991 game.
- The only difference is back then Sonic's body was still pointing in whatever direction he was facing and will stamp his foot until the player moves, while in LEGO Dimensions he turns directly to the camera and stops stamping his foot quickly.
- His first and third line to himself is a reference to Sonic Adventure 2, where he tells Shadow the same thing before their first battle.
- The second line Sonic makes to himself references Sonic Heroes, when Team Sonic met Team Dark before springing into battle.
- His third entrance line is a reference to the intro of Sonic X.
- His line to Marceline is both a nod to her occasionally turning into a werewolf in Adventure Time, and Sonic's time as a werehog in Sonic Unleashed.
- His line to Bart Simpson is a reference to The Simpsons episode "Marge Be Not Proud", where Bart imagines Sonic saying the same line to him to convince him to steal a video game.
- He mistakes Cragger for Vector the Crocodile because they're both anthropomorphic crocodiles.
- His line to Peter Venkman is about a creepy doll that resembles Tails, a reference to the odd Sonic R character, Tails Doll.
- His line to Gollum is a reference to the E3 trailer, where Gollum was about to take the ring but then Sonic the Hedgehog went very quickly and took it from Gollum.
- His line to Lumpy Space Princess is a reference to Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), where he meets Princess Elise. At the game's ending, time is reset and nobody remembers the events that happened.
- Also, judging by how he delivers the line, it's likely that he was also referring to the "kiss" scene from the same game.
- Sonic's quote to Cyborg is a reference to the "roboticization" concept used in early western Sonic media, most notably SatAM and the comic book series by Archie Comics, where animals are transformed into robotic forms directly instead of being used as organic batteries.
- His line to Harley Quinn has him slightly comparing her to Amy Rose, in particular their red outfits and that they carried a big hammer, as well as indirectly noticing similarities to their obsessive crushes on The Joker and him respectively.
- His line to Newt Scamander is since he keeps strange monsters in a suitcase Sonic doesn't want to be kept in a suitcase where he can't run free.
- His quote when unable to solve a puzzle is a quote from Sonic Heroes. It is heard when you clear a level as Team Sonic (Speed Formation) and get an E rank.
- The first part of Sonic's second entrance quote is from Sonic Adventure 1 when he encounters Chaos.
- The Bouncing Barrel in Carnival Night Zone line references the infamous barrel puzzle in Sonic the Hedgehog 3, which spawned frustration to many players that didn't know how to make it move up and down properly in order to pass on.
- When in his super form, he obtains the Invulnerability Ability making him the 6th character who obtains this ability.
- Gamer Kid and Sonic are the only characters who obtain this ability on a certain amount of time or energy.

- Sonic is the only Year 2 character to have a Dimensions Crisis storyline, even though the events never appeared in the main game story.
- His exit line "I'm outta here" is a reference to Sonic CD, the line is said in Sonic CD if you stay idle for 3 minutes in any stage.
- Sonic's first exit line is a reference to his favorite food, chili dogs.
- Sonic's first line in the Vortex is a reference to Special Stages in his franchise, however, his line about rings means he is referencing the ones in Sonic the Hedgehog 2
