Hey, even he has standards you know Arctides.
See, if you REALLY wanted to cause a stir, you would've opted for Islam.
Any commentary would have ruined the post.
Great, great choice.
I’m Christian, yet even I’ve gotta wonder wtf
The Shadow and Chao one was just too much. I couldn’t stop from laughing
The best part is that his rocket shoes are active. Just imagine him sliding around on his knees, consumed with prayer.
As a Christian, this is wonderful.
So…Is the first picture saying Sonic is god?
No, that would be Sonic.exe...
Not sure if heavily loved by Christian Sonic fans…
…or extremely blasphemous. Well, no commentary is better than some. We don’t want any religious arguments on a Sonic web site, now would we? …Would we? I really hope that’s not the master plan…
> We don’t want any religious arguments on a Sonic web site, now would we?There are probably MORE DIRECT ways to make sure it devolves into a criticism of religion than posting evangelical Sonic cartoons.And I'll let you know if I think of any.
You have clearly forgotten to make Jesus a raptor.
This is Mobius. They were sent Jesus the Velociraptor. He’s a lot like Sonic the Hedgehog. Except Jesus the Velociraptor will only save you if you believe he’s real, and swear to live how he commands you to. And Sonic the Hedgehog will run in and save you even if you don’t know he exists.
I love the idea that Jesus came to Sonic's world as a Dinosaur. Hey, Aslan was a lion in Narnia, why can't he be a Dinosaur on Mobius?
I’m a Christian and I’ll admit most of these are bad.
There’s a handful of tasteful ones in here. Counting from the top: 6, 8, 13, 15. The rest are obnoxious or good concept but poor execution.
Thank god in… Actually, no. I’m just glad I’ve become agnostic.
The photoshops… The horrid drawings… Is that Cream wearing a fucking diaper? Really?
My eyes are bleeding.
And the sad thing is some of these drawings are actually quite good from an artistic standpoint.
Too bad the topic is both cringe worthy and WTF-like.
hahahaha in #2 is that Slenderman portraying st peter?
Hey, its sonic… praying. Cooooooool…. I guess.
But heck golly gee wiz after the furry relationship he had back in ’06 I’d be praying for forgivness too, AMIRITE???? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!11!
I’m sorry, ignore what I said above. I tend to make bad decisions when I’m hungry. I’m going to eat a snickers. Peace be with you all.
Oh, and lovely post.
Well, Sonic CAN walk on water…
….to each his own?
No offense to anyone at all (I’m Muslim) but a lot of this made me roll my eyes. Not in a “Christianity is stupid” way, more like a “this is incredibly cheesy” way.
No plans to discuss Sega releasing a new Sonic game the other day, then?
Sonic Jump: The Retro ReviewFFFFFFFFUCK THIS GAME
Nice dA watermark there scarred. Jesus will send you to the dark chao garden for eternity now.
As a kid, I actually drew Sonic running and holding a bible up and it said “read your bible every day” if we had the internet back then I’m pretty sure it would be somewhere on this post lol
But seriously I did it not because I thought Sonic was God or anything, but because I valued my religion as a child, and I was a huge Sonic fan. I couldn’t help but draw Sonic all the time, and I couldn’t help but mix the two concepts. They in no way relate to each other, but I guess it was just my way of showing appreciation of two things I put a lot of value on.
If there is anything I can take away from this it’s that I’m glad there are Christian parents who don’t try to block every non-Christian thing from their kids and, well, I guess I’m not the only one that ever did this hahah
No kidding? I did the same thing! I bet the majority of these are just kids doing this and then posting the results on DA because they don't know any better. Heck, I could see myself doing this if I'd had unlimited internet access as a ten year old.
The first one is drawn quite well. The rest of them look ridiculous though, as does most fanart.
I dunno, I like the Second, Seventh, and Fifteenth one.
The Sonic Free Riders one was great. Most alarming was the one where Shadow has huge junk. Odd choice/mishap for a Christianity-related piece.
I get the sense that the artist is very confused in what they believe.I get the sense of that with a lot of the weirder pics. Trust me, they aren't indicative of Christianity as a whole.
That one with Tails and Cream was cute… Still, I’m WTF’ing really hard. I’ve been baptized in a christian church (I guess?) but I don’t know sh- cr- *AHEM* much about the religion itself. (Aside from the obvious things, like the holidays you get gifts or chocolate eggs, and stuff.)
I don’t feel like it’s worth my time. Meh.
But hey! I’ve made up a God for myself! He has a bit of each god people believe in.
Yeah, he looks like that God in the paintings, except he always wears hawaiian shirts and shorts, with cool shades and flip-flops! He hangs around the world, you might have seen him…
He’s pretty cool guy, yes yes.
I too also believe in The Dude as our one true savior.His brother John the Goodman is insane, though. Always follow the rules when bowling with him or he'll shoot you in the face.
I lost it at the Shadow and Chao one. I’m glad where I work was empty at the time because I looked insane.
The Free Riders one was the best, besides the awkwardly drawn Shadow and Chao one XD
I am a Christian, and only the first couple are nice. The rest…. Well their hearts are in the right place. Thank God people are willing to portray their faith.
And so the shitfest starts. Thanks sonic retro! This is probably the one and only thing you’re good at!
Also all of you are wrong, Sonic’s a muslim. Dead srs.
I’ll give the first one credit for quoting Nahum. Not even my pastor does that. The second one was pretty cute, but I wasn’t impressed by anything beyond that.
So is Sonic the Fighters coming to Steam yet?
Why do Sonic fan art have to be so…random? Some of these were just horrible. I think everyone agrees the shadow and chao one is the worst. 1 and 15 are the only ones here i like.
I am a Christian, and this is seriously painful to look at.
Now we now who was the character singing “Escape from the city” song to Sonic.
IT WAS MF JESUS!! NOW EVERYTHING MAKES SENSE, EVEN BIG THE CAT. HE IS GOD!
(Just for fun, no offense intended!)
Honestly, some of these aren’t bad. I’m not a religious person myself, but – disregarding the fact that Christianity doesn’t seem to have a place in the Sonic world – it’s not unbelievable to imagine that one or two characters might put their faith in a higher power in order to cope with things.
(e.g. Danbuster’s piece about Shadow kneeling at the cross – which, granted, I might be biased towards since Dan’s a good friend of mine, but still — it’s definitely one of the better overall drawings among the lot)
Tails being depicted as Baby Jesus however…
…. actually, giving it more thought, even THAT makes a vague amount of sense, given his constant resurrection in Sonic 2.
Why bring religion to a video-game website? I can’t see how this adds to the site in any way. The pictures aren’t even artistically impressive. It would seem that they have been added based on the poster’s mischievous sense of humour.
Incidentally, I lost it at Knuckles’ seemingly rage-filled face on the third pic from the bottom-up.
The only thing that I feel, is the great emerald’s power.
Also, since when has it been acceptable to post images condemning gays to burn in Hell? (As the fourteenth picture down does.)
Since Christians have been doing it for thousands of years. I don't mean to bash religion here, but it really is organized delusion. Every religion once started as a cult. That should tell you something right there.
That Chao Nativity scene is adorable.
I must say that the one with the Chao in the manger is really well done
I think these are just meant to me jokes. I’m Christian but this stuff is mad and the people who made it should feel bad.
The nativity scene with Tails and Cream was kinda cute :v
But I completely lost my shit at buffshadow
I can’t tell if SR is insulting Christians or praising them (I am a Christian btw).
Easy there. Nothing malicious here. Just highlighting a rather unique side of the fanbase.
This makes me sad. Bad Sonic art, I could understand, but this is brainwashing on a whole new level.
"Brainwashing"?! Just because you hate Christians doesn't mean someone who's making art is trying to hypnotize people into believing in God.
No, I mean that the people who made these are parrots. As in, they've been raised on this stuff. As in, they've had this stuff rammed down their throats since the day they were born, until this was all they could think about.There's no other way to get text like the stuff above to stick around for thousands of years. I see innocent mash-ups, but that's the problem. These people have no idea what they're spreading. Not 'hypnotizing'. Just dulled and meaningless. Sorry if I seem rough. I just had to let it out.
What is this I didn’t even-
Lol Image 10 “God made us special” and that awful drawing.
Yeah he made you special alright.
Also, wtf so Chao is baby Jesus? Chao was crucified for our sins because we abused him. Now we feel sorry, and we bow down to him to save us from the evil Omochao aka the Anti-Chao who will come on the day Chao will be ressurected!
Can I just point out that there is homophobia in one of the quotes here, and question its place? No disrespect meant to anybody’s religion or customs, but any quote that puts homosexuals next to thieves and drunkards doesn’t belong on here in my book, even if it is from the bible.
The picture itself is pretty good. Most of the ones here are… couple of MS Paint heroes though
Furries ah yes they will be accepted by god’s/Jesus’ hand into the kingdom of heaven.. NOT! I don’t recall he made them into this earth. Some of the art is good but obviously most of them suck and I hate the message on all of them. Sonic is totally not close to Gods/Jesus awesome level. He’s just an anthro hedgehog from a video game series. Why try to compare him to people from the bible with other sonic characters. That’s an insult right there and totally freak up. He looks more like a demon anyways. Werehog form of sonic and shadow the hedgehog along with the black aliens are perfect examples of hellish beast so yes this whole idea of the art is complete trash.. Hmm how should I end this.. BESTIALITY FROM SONIC 06 AH YES THAT’s so HOLLY. >3> (Anyways back to Sonic Jump information as well for new sonic hack games!)
Why compare Sonic to Jesus? Maybe because they are both character fabricated long ago designed with unrealistic superhuman abilities that defy the laws of physics?
I love the piece with knuckles and the quote from Jesus Christ.
Now, I haven’t read the bible, but I would say that I doubt he would address knuckles directly in the holy book. As I said, I haven’t read it so I may be wrong.
What is the point of this?
I’m a Christian, and I think that a lot of these are nuts. But what’s the point of showing these except to make other people think that Christians are all nuts? Especially the ones that mix with creepy, non-Christian fetishes like the diaper and the overly muscled Shadow?
Still, some of these are kind of sweet. I like Shadow and Maria reuniting, and Tails and Cream in a live nativity is also adorable.
I get the sense that a lot of these were made by little kids. Heck, I remember I did something similar when I was little. ‘Course, I didn’t post it all over DA for people to mock… So, why are we making fun of little kids’ doodles? The creepy man-children I can understand, but why are you mocking genuine kids who are just combining two things they love?
I think there’s plenty of commentary right here already.
I'm sorry, I can't help it:Do you figure that most of these 'artists' still live with their parents? Do you figure that they probably have no in-depth history knowledge to their names? They almost definitely have no opinion on politics, on contemporary issues, on other religions.Do you figure that they were brought to churches every week by their parents? Do you think that these kids really have any solidly formed opinions on their religion? That they have read their holy book cover to cover, analyzed passages, or even know exactly who the author(s) is/are?I don't think they love what they did. I think they do what they know, and there's a different. That's why this bothers me. Sorry.
Actually, I know at least a couple of the artists who made the imagery here read Retro, and I would be fascinated to hear their motivations and why they make this specific type of art--not necessarily in a judgmental way, but in a way to try to understand. What's going on here is a little more complex than say, Sonic and wrestling or Sonic and other video game franchises, which I see a lot of.
So in that one picture (you know the one) Shadow’s praying…but he’s super steroid-like muscle man, has HUGE ass junk and the Chao seems to be jacking it behind that bible.
I seriously can’t stop laughing when I look at that picture.
Better question:WHY THE HELL DOES SHADOW HAVE A THONG ON?
I just don’t know what to make of this. I mean… I got nothing. And that’s coming from an agnostic atheist (those terms aren’t mutually exclusive BTW) who doesn’t like the concept of religion in general.
I… Just… WTF?!
the one with cream and tails next to baby jesus is the best imo.
I find this confusing, simply because I was under the impression that Sonic the Hedgehog was a Scientologist…
When you have a bunch of kids that are in very Christian families that go to church every Sunday, you’re going to get kids who incorporate it into their drawings. It’s really weird, yeah, but it’s not surprising.
I lost it at “Sonic the Saved” and “GOD MADE US SPECIAL”
If memory serves me right, wasn’t there a website that calculated that Sonic was a COMMUNIST!?
I don’t get it … It is Robotnic that needs to confess , not Sonic .
I LOVE the well drawn ones. To me, the pictures make some what sence. Sonic is an animal, a creature that KNOWS it was created by God. On the other hand, he is an animal, and has no soul. None the less, good fan art, with good reason.
“He is ‘CLENAING’”, no more needs to be said
I sincerely see no reason to regard this as something stupid, that is if the owners of this post intended to do so.
there are cartoon characters that have been used as a way to send the christian message.
please let us not jump into the anti-christian bandwagon and attempt to ridicule the people who did this stuff.
I would not do something like this because I do understand that the character was not created for evangelistic purposes.
But hey, it’s their choice, and look, some of them are actually really well done (some, not all).
And just for the record, I can name a few famous characters who are christian themselves. Spider-Man, Superman and even DareDevil are among them.
This is actually very interesting because you wouldn’t exxpect these two things to fit together,but yet somehow they do.Anyone agree?
This exists, you guys.
slenderman is god?
I don’t think it’s really appropriate depicting Sonic characters involved with Christian themes, but these are most likely kids’ drawings or the drawings of plain weirdos. I’m a Christian and even I think these are stupid. But may I ask was the intent of showing these purely to highlight the ‘weirdos’ or is it some desperate attack on Christianity?
Thear fake, How can they have any religion?
WOW. I myself am a Christian, but I still find this stupid. This is a concept that should never happen!
Some were nicely drawn, but they didn’t mean much. I’m pretty sure this would never be something to encourage a person in his faith with, much less an evangelical tool (Which it probably wasn’t meant to be).
Whoever made “God Made Us Special” Either couldn’t afford Photoshop or a decent art program… or is agnostic.
[...] Some amazing examples of internet hilarity thanks to Sonic Retro. [...]
I’m surprised no one here has mentioned Sonichu. It has a lot of pro-Christian content in there as well as hypocrisy.
“HE IS CLENAING”
Also Slenderman is god.
I don’t rag on anyone because of their beliefs, but while some of the artwork bobs and weaves per picture… it doesn’t seem necessary to do religious Sonic-related art.
