Knuckles the Echidna or just Knuckles is one of the main characters in the series, Sonic Boom.

Concept and CreationEdit

When developing the new character designs, Knuckles was made larger and more muscular to emphasize his strength, his role as the strong guy on the team and the bruiser he is.

The sports tape Knuckles wears is inspired by fighters and American football players and is meant to give him a sense of practical heroism by showing that that he is not vain, which is a trait more fitting for villains, when saving the world, and to give him a more grounded approach.



Knuckles is much larger than the rest of the group and all of his other incarnations. Instead of having the same basic body type as Sonic, he has an incredibly large torso and muscular arms, making him very top-heavy despite his bigger legs. Like the other characters, Knuckles wears gloves, however, Knuckles has sports tape wrapped around his hands and wrists, similar to a Muay Thai boxer, making his gloves hard to see. His ankles and biceps are wrapped as well.

His gloves are different than his original game counterpart's as well in that these gloves allow for individual fingers, whereas the original Knuckles has more mitten-like gloves.
