Basic Stats:

  • Agility - 5
  • Speed - 4
  • Strength - 9
  • Defense - 6
  • Evasiveness - 6
  • Dexterity - 8
  • Intelligence - 5
  • Skill - 4


Special Attacks:

  • Knuckles Combo- a series of punches that includes a right punch, a left punch, then ends with a rocketing forward punch that seems to produce a fire-like aura.
  • Drill Claw (can only be used in mid-air)- a downward-diving attack where Knuckles spins like a corkscrew at high speed with his right fist outward to form a drill of sorts and pierce through enemies below him. Knuckles can also use this move to burrow into the ground from the air as well.
  • Spiral Upper- an upwards version of the Drill Claw that can send Knuckles about 15ft in the air.
  • Hammer Punch- A punch that Knuckles will send towards the ground that is so powerful, it causes a large tremor with a radius of about 300ft that can trip up opponents on the ground and will knock opponents who are climbing a wall down from it.
  • Screwdriver- Knuckles sticks both fists outward as he leaps in the air to do a forward corkscrew motion to perform this drill-like attack.

Special Abilities:

  • Super Strength- Thanks to the incident involving the CHAOS Reactor, Knuckles has been gifted with incredible strength that allows him to smash through damn near anything if he hits hard enough. One of his punches is actually powerful enough to send a large boulder flying. He can lift things up to 10 times his size on his own, and his body is durable enough to not tear itself apart when he lifts incredibly heavy objects.
  • Gliding and Climbing- Knuckles' trademark dreadlocks are actually aerodynamic enough to allow him to catch the wind in the air under his dreadlocks and use it to glide short distances. His namesakes are also long enough to be used like climbing spikes, and with them he can scale nearly any surface, no matter how tall.
  • Digging- Knuckles was originally created with bomb planting and diffusion in mind, and so his knuckles are specifically designed to allow him to dig through the ground with ease. He can't dig through metal surfaces, but soft earth and rock are no problem for him.
  • Sixth Sense- Knuckles also has a sixth sense that can enable him to sense if something bad is about to happen. It isn’t a very predictable ability, however.


Hobbies & Talents:

  • Knuckles loves to collect swear words from many different languages, and he even considers it to be a sport.
  • Knuckles also loves smoking his Cuban cigars as he takes on the role of drill sergeant.
  • He's highly proficient in Mixed Martial Arts.
  • He's also very skilled with heavy weaponry like rocket launchers and chain guns.


Weaknesses:

  • Knuckles is known for having quite a gullible streak, and although he's not completely stupid, he's one of the more dim-witted members of Company Bravo.
  • His short temper makes him prone to fits of rage on occasion, usually directed towards the person who's nearest to him when he loses it.
  • He often makes rash, sometimes even downright idiotic decisions in fights just so he can have a challenge, sometimes requiring Sonic and the other members of Company Bravo to save his hide from being gunned down.
  • Knuckles' sixth sense isn't very reliable at all.


Personal Facts:

  • Friends: Sally Acorn, Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Allies: The entirety of Company Bravo
  • Rivals: Sonic the Hedgehog (It's more of a friendly rivalry)
  • Enemies: Nicholas Fidel, the UN, GUN, anyone with the balls to take his cigars.
  • Known relatives: None.
  • Likes/Favorite activities: Smoking his Cuban cigars, taking the role of drill sergeant, showing off his incredible strength, a good fight, swearing like a sailor.
  • Dislikes/Least favorite activities: Wimps, people who steal his cigars, anyone who won't fight with him, GUN, the UN.
  • Gourmet of choice: Grapes.
  • Beverages of choice: Unknown.
  • Favorite color(s): Red


Personality: Knuckles is a short-tempered tough guy with a heart of gold, hiding his caring nature behind a thick wall of mental toughness, anger, indifference, and irritability. He’s often arrogant, boastful, and prideful, but is not one to underestimate his opponents… usually. He has a gullible streak, but he isn’t stupid. And whatever you do, don’t keep him away from his cuban cigars. He LOVES swearing, to the point where he considers collecting swear words of foreign languages to be a sport. But he unfortunately also has the sad habit of saying the wrong thing at the worst possible moment. Knuckles' great strength is still a valuable asset to the team, and he will give it his all to knock Fidel's teeth out.

Physical Appearance:

  • Fur Color: Red (Originally was orange.)
  • Eye Color: Purple
  • Hair Style: Dreadlocks

Attire:

  • A brown cowboy hat with blue trim, and yellow buttons with blue stars on them surrounding the brim.(AKA, his Sonic OVA hat)
  • A pair of black goggles with clear lenses worn around his neck to be used when digging.
  • A red and black colored variant of the standard Facility Delta Mobian bodysuit, with no sleeves (resembles Knuckles' Racing alternate costume from Sonic Rivals).
  • A camouflage vest.
  • A pair of white fabric boxing gloves with spaces for his knuckles to fit into.
  • A pair of red and yellow shoes with metal soles and integrated metal plates on top of each shoe, and a pair of green socks. (Resembles his Sonic Riders shoes.)


Items & Weapons:

  • Shovel Claws- Special metal coverings that clamp onto the spikes on his fists, which enable him to dig faster, and also work like brass knuckles to make his punches even more damaging. (Side note: they are supposed to resemble the SA1 Shovel Claws appearance-wise.)
  • His Own Fists- Yes, Knuckles' greatest weapons are his own two hands. His immense strength makes his punches powerful enough to smash nearly anything if he keeps at it, and can do major damage to GUN soldiers.


Fighting Style: Knuckles' fighting style consists of punches, punches, and more punches. All of his attacks are usually with his fists, taking advantage of his immense brute strength. He fights aggressively, often taking on large hordes of foes at once just so he can have a good challenge. He will chase his opponents all over the battlefield, and won't stop swinging until his target hits the dirt.

Vehicles: None at the present moment.

Theme Song: Unknown From M.E. (SA2 Ver.)

Backstory: Created as the first (and only) G2 Mobian Echidna, Knuckles lived in a "bunk" in Facility Delta for most of his young life. He befriended two other Mobians who lived in the bunks near him, Alpha the Hedgehog, and Sally Acorn the Chipmunk. However, when Knuckles was about 6 years old, Sally was taken to be used as a test subject for Chaos Energy. Alpha and Knuckles snuck into the testing chamber to rescue Sally and ended up rupturing the power conduits to the CHAOS Reactor. The three Mobians were caught in the tail end of the explosion and were thrown out of the test chamber, and knocked unconscious. When he woke up, Knuckles found that his dusky orange fur had turned a bright red, and his strength had increased tenfold. Alpha's fur had become blue as the sky, and he could now run faster than the speed of sound. And Sally had lost her tail, but gained a photographic memory. Alpha, however, was then transferred to Facility Bravo only a week later because of his newfound abilities.

Over the next 11 years, Knuckles was trained to be a part of the Mobian Militia. He found out that his great strength made smashing through walls a breeze, and let him lift heavy weaponry without much trouble at all. Being originally created for bomb planting and earthquake search and rescue, he often took the role of demolitions expert for the teams that he was on. He took a liking to playing the part of drill sergeant to the other recruits, leading to his promotion to staff sergeant, and became addicted to smoking Cuban Cigars in his spare time. However, as the years went on, he became more boastful and prideful of his strength, and his drill sergeant attitude led to him becoming quite irritable. None of the other Mobians of Facility Delta could best Knuckles in a fight, and he thought he was on top of the world.

However, in 2169, in the days before the Mobian Graduation ceremony, Knuckles found his old friend Alpha, who was now going by the name of Sonic, due to his speed. The two then decided to have a friendly sparring match, to see who had become the better fighter since they last met. It was a hard battle for both of them, but Sonic won out at the last minute using Chaos Control. Although the echidna lost, Sonic still recruited him and Sally Acorn to be part of his personally battalion, with Knuckles serving as Staff Sergeant just as he likes.

Unfortunately, Operation Sabertooth began right as the graduation ceremony started. GUN OST's dropped in, killed almost all the staff, and abducted a significant amount of Mobians and taking them into space. After being given the White Chaos Emerald by his dying mentor Sergeant Miller, Sonic used Chaos Control to teleport himself, his team, and the remaining Mobians to a secret base hidden in the Rocky Mountains. Perfect timing too, as GUN launched orbit-to-surface missiles to all major non-GUN military facilities (including Facilities Bravo and Delta), and leveled Facility Bravo with the Eclipse Cannon. Sonic, upset and angered at Fidel's actions, formed Company Bravo to strike back at GUN, and Knuckles was happy to be part of the team. Knuckles can't wait for the day when he can personally slam Fidel into the dirt, and remains as the main muscle of the team.

Personal Quote: "I'll handle anything you come up with, so just bring it on!"

Trivia:

  • Knuckles is supposed to be slightly more muscular than his game counterpart, but not nearly as much as his Sonic Boom incarnation.
  • His serial number is taken from the first 3 numbers for the debug code of Sonic 3 And Knuckles.

Approved, but when exactly did Mobians gain the privilege to smoke?

Ok, but you do realize that both smoking and drinking on duty is against army regulations, right?

Well, this is the future, and these aren't your typical soldiers either. Let's let Durzan decide, since he's the one who came up with that part.

Ok, but they are still half human so, I would assume the human condition still applies to them.

Maybe we should have him have an Australian accent, since echidnas are found in Australia.

Eh, Knuckles' smoking was one of those ideas that I carried over from the MG role-play. Keep it.

Although it is against regulations to smoke and drink while on duty, Knuckles really doesn't give a crap about the regulations, when it comes to his favorite hobby.

If you say so, Durzan. Profile's good otherwise?

What do you mean, typos, awkward sentence structure, and grammatical errors? I proofread this thing beforehand!
