So lately I've been going around to other major Sonic sites that aren't necessarily research-oriented, and along with the piles of fancruft being waded through (Tails was the guardian of the Master Emerald omg!11!!!!), there seems to be this ongoing rumor that the reason Mighty and Ray haven't been seen again is "the creator of the character took the rights with them." I've been in creative workplaces and know that this is utter horseshit?anything created on company time is the property of the employer. I've yet to find a credit listing for SegaSonic Arcade, but going through Chaotix's design credits, I don't see anything that would raise a particular alarm on "omg left Sega!" anyway. So my question is: who did create Mighty, are there SSA credits, and beyond "Duh, he just was a poorly designed character," how can this theory be disproved?
