We all know Sonic the Hedgehog is really, really fast. Since his debut on the SEGA Genesis in 1991, the blue blur has zoomed through giant pinball machines, run Olympic races against his ’90s rival Mario and sped through Hydrocity battling some of our favourite bosses.
But how does he compare to the fastest things on Earth? Could Sonic outrun a bullet train? A 747?
We ran the numbers and the results are in:
Fastest human (Usain Bolt)
Fastest land animal (cheetah)
Fastest car (Bugatti Veyron Super Sport)
Fastest commercial aeroplane (Boeing 747)
