Biography

Sonic the Werehog (ソニック・ザ・ウェアホッグ) is the form that Sonic takes in the game Sonic Unleashed. This form was gained when Dr. Eggman sucked the energy from the Chaos Emeralds while being used by Super Sonic and used that energy in his Chaos Energy Cannon to blast the planet into seven pieces in order to wake Dark Gaia. When he was awoken, a part of him went inside Sonic, thus turning him into a Werehog. The basic appearance of the Werehog is the same as Sonic, except it is much more furry and savage looking. He also has ripped socks, spiked shoes and white tipped spikes.

Gameplay

Werehog gameplay focuses on platforming and combat. Sonic is now much slower, but gains a strength increase from Dark Gaia which is used for fighting. Sonic can now stretch his arms in a manner similar to ­Chaos 0 to reach things from far away as well as swing on poles and such. Sonic's moves are more feral as his battles are primarily a hack and slash affair. Players can chain attacks to score combos and maintain health.

Sonic's health and endurance is also extended by means of a "Life" bar in the HUD. The meter works the same way as Tails' and Eggman's walkers from Sonic Adventure 2. He can take hits without Rings, but is not invincible. Collecting Rings and defeating enemies replenishes the meter.

At the end of a stage, Sonic gains experience points from the amount of Chaos Orbs (yellow diamonds found via defeating enemies and breaking items) that were collected. These experience points level up Sonic which allows him to gain new attacks, increase his health meter, and raise his "Unleashed" meter. This helps him master the true power of Dark Gaia.

Moves

While Sonic's the Hedgehog's repertoire is, as usual, restricted to the trusty spin attack and its variants, the Werehog has an abundance of brawling fighting moves that use button combos to execute. Further moves are unlocked by levelling up the Combat stat in the end-of-level EXP assignements.
