How much of a Sonic Fan are you? Take the test!
Instructions: All questions have varied points possible and are listed at the end of each question within "(10+ Points)" NO ONE will have the same score thats for sure since everyone will be differently. What you need to put inside the "[ ]" is the points you earned for that question. Be sure to read the questions carefully as some have extra points you can earn if you did something rare or what not.
I recommend you answer these questions with honesty. Don't lie about things you never did or owned. When you are done answering the 50 Questions in the Five Categories tally up your total points at the end and compare them to the ranking system. Remember, this is all based on what you own, seen, or did that was Sonic oriented. And remember to have fun as well, this is after all made for fun : P

Now that the math is done, it is time to see what type of Sonic fan you are.
3935 - 3000 = Sonic's Biggest Fans in the entire World (Congratulations!)
2999 - 2600 = Insane Sonic fan

I took the quiz and I was ranked as a Normal Sonic fan : P With a Score of 987.
If you did my quiz, I hope you enjoyed it and feel free to spread it around deviantART guys.
Although this can be used as a tag journal, I won't really tag anyone. But I do offer the choice to a few people I have here:
AND to anyone else who wants to do this that I didn't list. I'm sorry if I didn't list you personally, there is a lot of people I know here on this site.
Have fun and comment your rank below.
You'll know when it has been updated when you see it pop up again in your mailbox.
I probably would have more merchandise if my mom didn't think it was all junk when I was little. Thank god she understands me now... My room is literally Pokemon, Anime, Sonic and My Little Pony themed. XD
If I had more money, I'd like to get the whole collection of the comics but there's so many aha.
Great quiz though! It was fun!
But I haven't got around to doing it...
I want to say that the quiz is unbalanced in some ways, because I think the TV/comic section killed it in more ways then one.
Only one point for missing a few episodes and such? Also the shows aired on TV 15+ years ago at least.
(also a +10 if you've seen the Japanese/French version of Sonic X)
Also the bonus question, that's a very high number, it takes a third of the entire quiz.
Maybe I'm just being whiny because at heart, I'm a 7.5/10 fan, yet have so few points....
So I'll go through the quiz again and update some stuff. And include that 10+ point for watching the Japanese/French version of Sonic X as well : P
The Bonus was meant to be high. It serves as a reward for people who have gone to those conventions, gatherings, and what not. I'm sure you are aware that those events are pretty expensive and sometimes not everyone can go to them. But if they were die hard fans they would find a way. If they can't, the rest of the quiz would have compensated.
The sad thing is I can't calculate how it would be for someone who is a MAJOR Sonic fan but cannot afford most of the things I have listed in the quiz. Which means it would be a low score.
Overall I made this quiz to experiment with it and see what can be done to improve its results. Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
I think and important thing that was missed is knowledge/trivia.
You are a casual sonic fan if you don't know who Mighty, Bean, or Sonia is, or don't know the name of the band that makes most the main themes of the Sonic games, or who had the most redesigns.
I know a fairly high amount of trivia outside of the handheld games and early archie comics, so If you would like me to throw some questions in there, let me know.
I'll have to create another set of questions for the trivia section then as well as update a few questions with higher point value.
If you have some questions you want me to add into the quiz, fire away.
You know who Lamorack is.
you know who had the most character redesigns.
you know how many ports sonic 1 had.
you know the first console to have all the Sonic games pre 2006(excluding chaotix, jam, and shuffle)
you know what year sonic 1 was released
you know the only game that has 8 chaos emeralds.
you know what a Nazo is
you know at least 5 (non archie/alt media) unused characters since at least 2006
Of course I'm sure you have some ideas yourself, so I'll stop there, and you don't have to use them all of course.
Though the Nazo question might be pushing it considering it is a fan made character. But then again it is quite popular so I think I will let that slide.
I'll add these in when I can and give you credit for the ones you provided.
The fact that people believe that image is Nazo 100% is just showing a lack of research. Nazo was born from the hit animation by Chakra-X: Nazo Unleashed when he used the image to create a villain called Nazo. The image maybe official, but that is not Nazo, its thanks to Chakra-X that people believe this and keep referring to the image from the trailer as Nazo. Believe what you want though, but I consider Nazo as a fan character created by Chakra-X and the image from the trailer is unrelated besides the fact he used the image to create the character.
Very well then : P But I will need to get to fixing the quiz as soon as I am done with a comic page of mine.
Good to know I'm just the right amount! ^^ Although I expected my score to be a little higher, but I'm happy with my result!
Its all experimental so mistakes are bound to happen : P
I think I did well on making this quiz, I just want to see how many take it.
C1: 1, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 290
C2: 3, 4, 7, 8, 9 180
C3: 1, 2, 5, 10 5
C4: 3, 4, 7, 9 230
C5: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9 340
…Welp, I guess I'm an extreme Sonic fan! (BTW, is it weird that Sonic's my favorite videogame series, yet it's literally the only game series I like that isn't a Nintendo series? (Excluding Phoenix Wright, but I'm new to that, so I love it partially because I'm still playing blind, so thaty doesn't count.))
No not really, Nintendo is the main game company anyways. Microsoft, Sony, and others are just trying to cash in on games. SEGA was also like Nintendo but its consoles went down :/
