Vector the Crocodile in Sonic the Hedgehog (aka Vector in Sonic 1) is a hack of Sonic 1 by E-122-Psi, starring Vector the Crocodile as the playable character instead of the blue hedgehog. The game is modified to use Vector's sprites (edited from Knuckles Chaotix) in place of Sonic's, along with several modifications to the player's stats and abilities.

The game was modified by Sonic Retro member E-122-Psi, with additional programming and coding by other members including MarkeyJester and flamewing.


Vector can perform the Spin Dash while on the ground, and the Air Dash while in mid-air in any direction. Due to his reduced jump height and acceleration, these new moves can become crucial to completing certain levels:

  • Air Dash: Press A/B/C while holding on the D-Pad to have Vector thrust forward in any direction.
  • Spin Dash: Hold Down and press A/B/C while standing still to rev up. Let go of down to dash forward in a rolling formation.
  • Wall Climb: Air Dash into a wall while holding A/B/C to cling onto a wall, press Up or Down to climb up or down. Let go of A/B/C to jump off.
