Video Game Appearances Edit

Strangely Rouge does not appear in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games.

Sonic Adventure 2 Edit

Rouge first appears in Sonic Adventure 2 as the treasure-hunting character of the Dark Story, making her the equivalent of Knuckles, her goal being to seek out the pieces of the Master Emerald. She also drives a car in one level. She fights the boss Flying Dog (a G.U.N robot), and her rival, Knuckles who saves her from falling into the hopper of molten metal in her last boss battle. In the following cutscene, she gives up the shards of the Master Emerald she had collected. In Cannon's Core, Rouge is the third of five characters to go through the level and is given Shadow's ring cufflink by Sonic after the defeat of the Final Hazard.




Sonic Heroes Edit

In Sonic Heroes, Rouge is the captain and flight member of Team Dark. She releases Shadow from his stasis pod, and accidentally activates E-123 Omega, who attempts to destroy all of Eggman's robots, including Shadow, who Omega thinks is a robot clone. Rouge stops Shadow and E-123 Omega from fighting, suggesting that they work together as a team to find Eggman.

Sonic Battle Edit

In Sonic Battle, Rouge is one of the most prominently featured characters in the game, with her story being the third to be played through. She is the owner of Club Rouge in the Night Babylon area (no relation to the Babylon Rogues from Sonic Riders). Most of her fighting techniques appear to be derived from kickboxing. She plans to use her position as a government agent to gather information on valuable treasures. She also knows a great deal about the Gizoid and tells most characters about the Gizoid, eventually telling Shadow the Hedgehog how to 'free' Emerl. She steals Emerl from Amy Rose, in order to train him as a master thief to steal more jewels for her. She fights with Amy and Sonic numerous times, increasing the tension between Rouge, and the pair. Rouge teaches Emerl to fight, evade capture, and pick locks. Rouge then uses Emerl to steal a Chaos Emerald (which he absorbs, much to Rouge's displeasure). At the end of the game, when Emerl thanks Sonic and his friends/acquaintances for taking care of him, Rouge is only mentioned in the Japanese version.


Shadow the Hedgehog Edit

Rouge also appears in Shadow the Hedgehog, and helps on hero missions in the Digital Circuit, Death Ruins, and GUN Fortress levels. In Expert Mode, her voice can be heard at the beginning of Cryptic Castle, Lava Shelter (along with Omega's) and The Last Way (along with the voice of every other character that appears in Expert Mode).

Sonic Riders Edit

Rouge appears in Sonic Riders as an unlockable racer. She is a Flight type, and is the strongest Flight type character in the game. The Japanese website also mentions that she has some kind of rivalry with Wave the Swallow. Rouge is one of only three characters in Sonic Riders who do not wear any sporting gear on their heads, with the others being Amy and AiAi. She is also one of the few characters who do not take any part of the story.

Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) Edit

In Sonic the Hedgehog, Rouge appears as an "Amigo" character, playable in stages White Acropolis, Kingdom Valley, Flame Core, and Tropical Jungle. At the start of Shadow's story, she had gone on a mission to recover an item from Eggman's base, and Shadow is sent by GUN to help her escape. After being rescued, Rouge then works with him very closely for most of the game, in various endeavours, such as defeating Mephiles, tracking down the Chaos Emeralds, escaping from the future, and separately finding Omega, to aid Shadow, whilst he was stuck in a different time zone. Rouge also helps find the Chaos Emeralds to revive Sonic in the Last Story.


Sonic Rivals Edit

Rouge appears in Sonic Rivals in Shadow's storyline. Rouge sends transmissions stating that she has stumbled across an interesting discovery about "Dr. Eggman's" true identity in the game, but the transmissions ended with her in danger. It is later revealed during Shadow's storyline that Rouge was turned into a card like Tails and Amy so Shadow sets out to save Rouge whilst also trying to discover what she was trying to warn him about. Rouge is playable in the sequel, Sonic Rivals 2.

Sonic Rivals 2 Edit

Rouge appears along with Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Shadow, Metal Sonic, Silver and Espio as a playable character in Sonic Rivals 2. She teams up with Knuckles to help him find the Master Emerald (which Knuckles has lost once again). She suggests following Eggman to get and Emerald detector from him. Rouge actually worked with Knuckles for that what so she can find the seven Chaos Emeralds for her client. It is later discovered that her client is actually Eggman Nega and she decides to keep the Emeralds for herself. In the end they get stolen from her and the portal to the Ifrit's dimension is opened. Knuckles forces her through, assuming that the Master Emerald is inside. In the end Rouge breaks the Emerald Detector in a fight against Knuckles (one of them was being controlled by the Ifrit depending on which story you play) and they discover the Master Emerald had been inside the detector the whole time. Rouge then steals the Emerald Detector and the Master Emerald, only to be chased by Knuckles.

Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity Edit

Rouge returns in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity as a secret character along with Shadow, Blaze, Cream, Silver and Dr. Eggman. Her game mechanics are unchanged from the previous Sonic Riders.

Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood Edit

Rouge appeared as one of 11 playable characters in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, along with Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Shadow, E-123 Omega, Cream and Big.

Sonic Free Riders Edit

Rouge is one of the main characters in Sonic Free Riders. She works along with Shadow and a strange robot named E-1000g who is actually Metal Sonic Trying to steal her skills on boards for Dr.Eggman. When She meets Wave the swallow she teases her sarcastically saying when she beats her "I just feel sorry for everyone watching" Wave just stares and says"we must have REALLY let the fans down". And so Team Babylon leave the tormement. Soon she and her team comes across Team Heroes with her robot friend nearly broken. Knuckles says to Tails "These two are not the type known as Team loyalty Tails" Rouge stares and ignores. Later They come across Team Rose and like most of the time argues with Amy. In the end she teams up with the rest of the teams with Shadow not happy about it and challenges Sonic To a race but ends up having to work together to stop Metal Sonic. Although at the end of Team Darks Story they win the tornoment but leave with the fake prize! Luckily omachao reminds them and they go back for the real prize.

Abilities Edit

Rouge, as a treasure hunter, has similar treasure hunting skills to those of her rival Knuckles (with the exception that she has a strapping lower body as opposed to his muscular upper body). Her signature attacks are strong martial arts kicks like her powerful Screw Kick. Rouge can fly and glide with her wings, and aviate herself to move at speeds close to that of other speedy characters like Knuckles and even Sonic and Shadow (though she is not as fast as the supersonic hedgehogs). She can also climb, dig and swim quite well. In many games, Rouge makes use of different advanced technologies and weaponry. However these are mostly game specific.
