Body Count

Postby WinkingSamurai » Thu Jul 31, 2008 10:26 pm

I was a little hesitant to start this thread. It's kind of a morbid topic, even if it is a fictional story. But then I figured, what the hey.

Just as the title suggests, the purpose of this thread is to list all of the deaths (of which there have been many) in the Sonic Archieverse. I couldn't find any such list anywhere on the internet, so I figured a gaggle of nerds like us would be the perfect group to list every single casualty in the comic.

List the character, the issue, and the cause of death. I figured a good place to start would be with the comic's first death, and it's most recent death.

Julayla, issue 18. Natural causes.

Locke, issue 184. Sacrifices his life to break Dr. Finitevus's curse on Knuckles and the Master Emerald.

So, are those unofficiall but your personal list of characters "dead" that you [for sure] won't bring back into the comics (unless perhaps in flashbacks or something of the sort)? If so, all I can say is...

Not Yanar!
...Not Gala-Na... :(

I knew Simon was gone, but Floren-Ca as well?

"Issac"? Did you mean Isaac, the gold E-100 robot which was protecting Ivan Kintobor's body and re-told Mobius' history?

Lest we forget:
-Dr. Ivo Robotnik (original Robotnik, the one who was "ultimately annihilated" in ish #50)
-Edmund (or the obviously already long-deceased Brotherhood/Guardians, for that matter)
-Xenin
-Benadict (Since Ian listed Mecha and A.D.A.M., I'd include him)
-Cheddermund (first overlander roboticized by Eggman)
-Metal Sonic (original)
-Silver Sonic
-Silver Sonic II

I'm curious Ian. Since there was obviously genocide in the comics with regards to the echidnas, was there any reason you didn't allow any of the Knothole Mobians to die in the Egg Grapes when captured after the destruction of Knothole? I felt it would have made the story a bit more darker had there actually been some casualties, instead it was all wrapped up as if no one died. I could be wrong, but that's how it seemed to be, since Charmy was the only one the Egg Grapes were shown to be used on.

"Julayana"? I think that's "Julayla", right?
I had apparently forgotten about Julie-Su's adoptives. When did they die?
And Isaac?

We saw Simon's name on one of the Egg Grapes in the last page-sized panel of issue number #141 as I recall.

Dr. Finitevus was seen taking him apart, or trying to do something with him, in issue #165 when Rouge was explaining what she'd seen while with Finitevus and Scourge. Maybe by tinkering with Isaac, he accidentally (or deliberatly) destroyed him afterwards.

- Lives on as Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik (trying to keep it simple for the new readers)
- Point
- too minor to care
- too minor to care
- too minor to care
- too minor to care

It'd be like listing every time a badnik got bashed.

To make the win that more monumental. It wasn't flawless - Charmy was still affected - but our heroes managed to turn 100% loss into 99.9% victory. The set-up was supposed to be grim, not the outcome.
Part 1 - Utter defeat! Gasp! Oh no!
Part 2 - Whew! That was close! But it's not over . . .!
Part 3 - Happy ending! Yay!

I didn't know Sabina (Dulcy's mom, right?) was dead.

I hear Lupe (whom was also originally a Sonic SatAM character like Sabina) also died to. (But didn't she just get roboticized, or something? And wasn't there some kinda mass deroboticization going on? I dunno, I never read those issues.)

(hearty laughter) it's amazing how many characters died in this series. :wink: Even though this is a serious topic, the title of it "Body count" kinda made me chuckle.

Refresh my memory, is Sherman Walrus Rotor's dad? When and how was he killed?

As for Issac, I think Dimitri's right. Finitevus probably did it on accident or on purpose. Or Issac's age finally caught up with him and he was just too old to operate. Does this mean that Ivan's as good as dead?

Rouge commented that Ivan was a frozen corpse in #165. If she's right, he's been dead a while
