Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic is an anthropomorphic blue hedgehog from an alien planet born with supersonic speed, who was forced to flee from his home planet to Earth after he and his caretaker Longclaw were discovered by a tribe of echidnas. 10 years after hiding away in Green Hills, Montana, Sonic accidentally creates an energy surge while playing baseball that causes a blackout across the Pacific Northwest, gaining the attention of the government who sends Dr. Robotnik to investigate. Sonic attempts to use his rings to warp to a mushroom planet, until he is seen by Tom Wachowski who shoots Sonic with a tranquilizer gun. This causes Sonic to drop his rings and send them to the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco after reading Tom's shirt before going unconscious. When Robotnik comes to Tom's house and finds out about Sonic, Tom eventually agrees to help Sonic retrieve his rings and the two flee from the house in Tom's truck after being attacked by one of Robotnik's drones.
On the road, they stop at a bar where Sonic learns about bucket lists and later accidentally starts a bar fight. Sonic and Tom stay at a hotel where Tom learns he has been labelled as a "domestic terrorist". The next morning, Tom tells Sonic about his plans to move to San Francisco to join the SFPD to which Sonic is offended because he has no reason to leave the ones Tom cares about while he was forced to. Meanwhile, Robotnik had tracked down the two and attacks them. After successfully destroying most of his drones, Sonic gets a tiny sticky bomb stuck to him, prompting Tom to pull over to get it off. The bomb explodes behind Sonic, so Tom takes Sonic to his wife Maddie's house to help him. After handling Maddie's sister, Rachel, Maddie gets Sonic to wake up using smelling salts, and joins Sonic and Tom on retrieving Sonic's rings. The three steal Maddie's car as Tom's truck was totaled by the drones, and reach the Transamerica Pyramid. As Sonic is about to throw a ring after saying goodbye, Robotnik appears in an aircraft powered by one of Sonic's quills that was dropped while at Tom's house. Sonic sends Tom and Maddie somewhere safe, while Robotnik chasing Sonic while teleporting via the rings. However, Robotnik defeats Sonic as they warp into Montana, but Sonic reawakens after Tom expresses how Sonic was his friend and sends Robotnik to the mushroom planet. Sonic settles in with the Wachowski in Green Hills.
