Game Theory: Sonic is Lying...AGAIN! (Sonic Mania)

Sega may not be the gaming powerhouse it once was, but SONIC will forever be a classic video game hero. But despite the loving nostalgia I hold for Sonic, his games don’t always make the most sense. Chaos Emeralds, for example, are one of the more ridiculous aspects of any gaming franchise. Or are they? The idea behind chaos emeralds is that they’re powerful battery-like rocks. As crazy as that sounds, it’s a lot closer to reality than you might think!

    Just to clarify... I'm not using the Sonic comics to "prove" the theory by any means. The conclusion that the Emeralds are quartz is based solely on evidence from the games: Color and Behavior. I'm then using the comic lore to draw parallels that I thought were interesting as I researched, like the radiation and compression machine. So the fact that the comic lore isn't canon doesn't have any actual bearing on the conclusion that I reached in the theory...or maybe the radioactive quartz means that lore is more canon than you might think... ;)

    What happends if this a new gem 💎 like something never found like rare why there is only seven instead of a lot of then that may explains why sonic and egg man search the same stones instead of just going full Minecraft and just mining

    Referring to the intro, Sonic did come up with the idea of seven magical items capable of immense power, but they decided to show what it could do to Sonic and copied off of another spikey-haired protagonist with seven magical items capable of immense power.

    You’re saying that DBZ ripped off super sonic. This is not true. Super sonic first appeared in sonic 2 (which was released in 1992) and you said that super sayan was first released in a manga in 1991. Therefore, sonic was the one who ripped off DBZ
