I was reading this article about Sonic's worst friends. Not that I agree with the list (I don't), but it got me thinking: which recurring characters from Sonic games shouldn't be returning? Either because they are bad, or because they have nothing more to offer in terms of development, or for any other reason. I am only including the most recurring characters in the poll (due to the limit of choices), but I'm not including Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Eggman and Metal Sonic, because they are the main ones. So we have Big the Cat, Blaze the Cat, Team Chaotix, Cream the Rabbit, the Deadly Six, E-123 Omega, Rouge the Bat, Shadow the Hedgehog and Silver the Hedgehog. What characters would you abandon for good?
