Sam Speed (real name Samuel "Sam" Flair) is a minor character exclusive to the Sonic X universe. He is Chris Thorndyke's maternal uncle (the brother of Lindsey Thorndyke) and the leader of the S-Team, a special unit of the Station Square police force that uses high-performance automobiles.

Personality and traits

Sam is extremely competetive and refuses to let anyone be faster than him. His rivalry with Sonic is a recurring theme throughout Sonic X's first two seasons. Sam Speed is 28 years old, 183 cm tall, and weighs 80 kg. A running gag in the original Japanese version of the show involves Sam having a different nickname in each of his appearances, some examples being "Highway Star" and "Love Express". In the English version, his only nickname was "Speed King", a possible reference to NHRA drag racing legend Kenny Bernstein, who is known as "the King of Speed."
