Amy Rose (エミー・ローズ, Emī Rōzu?), also formerly known as Rosy the Rascal (ロージー・ザ・ラスカル, 'Rōjī za Rasukaru'?), is a pink, female hedgehog who has chased Sonic in love and has been trying to win his heart by any means, including impressing him by fighting robots, threatening to leave him locked in prison on prison island, and even forcing him. Being introduced in 1993, she was the first, and most recurring, female character introduced in the Sonic games and is also one of the most popular characters, coming in fifth place on an official popularity poll, being the most popular female.
She was described as being 8 years old in Sonic CD, but from Sonic Adventure onwards she has grown older (by 4 years). Also, with the addition of Cream the Rabbit, Amy seems to have found herself a sidekick similar to Sonic's own Tails (as implied in Sonic Battle, Sonic Heroes, Sonic Advance 3, and Shadow the Hedgehog).
Amy Rose is one of the few main characters in the Sonic the Hedgehog series to have her first appearance outside the Sega games. She was created by Kenji Terada for the various Sonic the Hedgehog manga published by Shogakukan. She first appeared in the April 1992 issue of Shogaku Ninensei, written and illustrated by Sango Morimoto. She also appeared in the unrelated series from Shogaku Ichinensei, Shogaku Sannensei, Shogaku Gonensei, Shogaku Rokunensei, and Coro Coro Comics Special, all of which were written and illustrated by different mangaka but based on Kenji Terada's initial concept. In these series, Amy (no second name is given) is the girlfriend of Nicky, a nerdy hedgehog boy with the power to transform into the superhero, Sonic the Hedgehog. Amy is also the target of the bully Anton Verruca. Because of the vastly different styles of the illustrators for these series, Amy's design was different in each. She appeared most like her later games appearances in the Coro Coro Comics Specials, written and illustrated by Tanaka Kouichi. Amy's original design in 1993.Added by Tails&SilverFanIn 1993, the manga character was adapted by the Sonic CD team to be used in Sonic's Mega CD debut. Her final design for this game was done by Kazuyuki Hoshino. She appeared infrequently thereafter, in ensemble spin-off games such as Sonic the Fighters, Sonic Drift, Sonic Drift 2, and Sonic R. She did not appear in any of the early TV series, although she was included in most comics, including the Archie Comics series, the British Sonic the Comic and the French Sonic Adventures.
When Sonic Team reunited and started work on their three dimensional follow-up to the classic Sonic games, Sonic Adventure, it was decided they would revive the pink hedgehog and give her a starring role in the game. Yuji Uekawa, the man who would redesign all the classic characters, did the most drastic changes to Amy. While Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles all received minor tweaks, Amy had her clothing and hairstyle completely revamped. She also had her entire figure redesigned to make her appear older, perhaps in an attempt to appeal to a different demographic than the rest of the Sonic characters.
Following Sonic Adventure, Amy became one of the main characters of the series, and has appeared in nearly every Sonic game since, as well as the TV series Sonic X.
Using her tarot cards, Amy learned that she was to have a "destined" encounter with Sonic on the Little Planet. Excited, she rushed over to Never Lake, the place where the small planet appears one month out of the year. It wasn't long before she ran into her crush, Sonic, in Palmtree Panic, and couldn't help but excitedly grab onto her hero, something which was none too pleasing to him. Her happiness was short lived, for as she continued to follow Sonic into Collision Chaos, she was kidnapped by Dr. Eggman's latest creation, Metal Sonic. Though Sonic eventually rescued Amy from her capture, and saved Little Planet from Eggman's grasp, he did not reciprocate her advances.
Apparently following Sonic, Amy ended up joining two drift-racing competitions, which both offered Chaos Emeralds as prizes. Driving her cute blue car, and later a red one, she competed in both races in an attempt to impress Sonic. A short while afterwards, Dr. Eggman planned to dominate the world from space, and a spaceship was made by Sonic’s friend, Miles "Tails" Prower, which had only one seat and required the power of the Chaos Emeralds. Wanting to use the ship, everyone who had an Emerald fought to gain the others, including Amy. Under the alias of "Rosy the Rascal", she competed for the chance to defeat Eggman and impress Sonic.
Returning to her home in downtown Station Square , Amy lived a normal life in Sonic’s absence. In this time, she also had an extreme makeover; replacing her green sweater and orange skirt with a red dress with white décor, her blue and white shoes with red and white boots, and sporting a hair band and golden rings around her wrists. That was not all, she also had her spikes arranged like an echidna’s, rather than her hedgehog style spikes she had beforehand. It was while shopping and reminiscing about her times with Sonic that the Egg Carrier flew over the city, and a small blue Flicky fell out and knocked her over. After naming it "Birdie", one of Eggman’s robots, E-100 "ZERO" Alpha, arrived and chased the two of them. Hiding in the burger shop, Amy and Birdie escaped, and Amy decided to find Sonic and make him Birdie’s bodyguard for a short while. Finding him outside of Casinopolis, Sonic was shocked to see her and refused her request, which led her to say she would "tag along" anyway. After fleeing Alpha again, the three ended up in Twinkle Park, where Amy and Birdie lost Sonic after being chased. Deciding to find him, the two searched all around the city, until they were kidnapped by Alpha and forcibly taken to the Mystic Ruins, where Eggman picked them up and had Amy and Birdie locked away in a cell. After managing to switch E-102 Gamma’s allegiance, the two fled through the Hot Shelter, but were transported to the past and found themselves in the lands of the Knuckles Tribe, and watched Tikal with a group of Chao meeting Chaos. Returning to the present day, a somewhat confused Amy and Birdie escaped to the flight deck, where Eggman was confronting Sonic and Tails. Delighted to see them, Amy’s joy was short-lived when the Doctor grabbed Birdie and took a Chaos Emerald from the pendant he had been wearing. Eggman then called Gamma to destroy the intruders, before fleeing himself. Sonic, Tails and Gamma were just about to finish off each other when Amy convinced them to stop. Sonic then told Tails to fly Amy away, which he did, just before the Egg Carrier lost altitude and exploded. Arriving in Station Square, Amy went to search for Birdie’s family, first in the Final Egg, and then the crash-landed Egg Carrier, where they were attacked by Alpha who badly hurt Birdie. Enraged, Amy attacked and destroyed the menacing robot. Birdie found and returned to his family, who had been trapped inside of E-102 Gamma and E-101 Beta. As the birds flew off, and Amy prepared to leave the Egg Carrier, she decided that she would not give up and that someday she would make Sonic respect her.
Later, Amy returns to Station Square that has been destroyed by Perfect Chaos. After Perfect Chaos has absorbed the power of the 7 Chaos Emeralds and throws them away, Amy grabs one of them and brings it to Sonic along with Tails, Knuckles and Big the Cat, who bring the other 6 Emeralds. Together they form positive power through their caring for each other and Sonic transforms into Super Sonic and defeats Perfect Chaos.
Afterwards, Amy, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and (accidentally) Dr. Eggman were all summoned to Maginaryworld by Lumina Flowlight, who needed them to help repair the Precioustone. Each had their own role to play, and with each other’s help, the Precioustone was repaired, Maginaryworld was saved, and the heroes were returned home to Earth.
Amy was an important supporting character in Sonic Adventure 2. Although not playable in the main story, she was playable in 2-player mode. When Sonic was trapped on Prison Island, Amy somehow managed to arrive on Prison Island and accidentially stumbled on Eggman, Shadow, and Rouge's plan to steal the Chaos Emeralds (she had mistaken Shadow for Sonic). She ended up cornered by Eggman as a consequence, but was saved at the last minute by Tails. With Tails' help, managed to free him (This is one of several times that Amy has saved Sonic, instead of the other way around). When she learned from Sonic that the reason why he was on Prison Island was because of the actions of a "Fake Hedgehog", she realized that she was referring to Shadow, and informed him of Shadow's allegiance to Eggman despite Sonic's refusal to marry her. She also briefly saw some writing on the wall of Sonic's cell (actually equations made by the former occupant of the cell, Professor Gerald Robotnik, to cause a catastrophic crash via the Space Colony ARK to destroy the planet as revenge for the death of Maria Robotnik, his granddaughter). Because of the events of Sonic's escape as well as her involvement in it, she was also targeted by GUN to be arrested even after Eggman's doomsday threat. She eventually ended up captured by Dr. Eggman onboard the ARK, after the latter deduced that Sonic and Tails were carrying both a real and a fake emerald, and demanded the locations of Sonic and Tails while holding her at gunpoint. After luring them to the pinnacle area of the Death Egg and presumably killing Sonic via a rigged escape capsule, Amy broke down in tears, but was later relieved when learning that Sonic actually survived. She also managed to convince Shadow that Maria's true wish was for him to bring hope to humanity, not to seek revenge on them for her. Amy begged Shadow to help everyone, and thus ending up saving the world from the Biolizard, and later, after transforming in Super Shadow, Finalhazard.
Amy was playable in Sonic Advance, but unlike the other playable characters, she could not spin and all her attacks had to be triggered by a button press. She was an unlockable character in Sonic Advance 2 (after collecting all of the Chaos Emeralds with all four of the other characters). She apparently did some training, as she was able to spin jump and spin dash in this game. She could also do this in Sonic Advance 3 (if she was partnered with Sonic. If Amy is the leader, the partner behaves as she does in Sonic Advance).
In Sonic Heroes, Amy is the leader of Team Rose, and is the team's speed formation leader. She is accompanied by Cream the Rabbit and Big the Cat, who want to find Chocola (Cheese's brother) and Froggy, respectively. Amy simply wants to find Sonic and force him to marry her. She and her team ends up confronting Metal Sonic with Team Sonic, Dark, and Chaotix, after he copied their data. They also found out that Metal Sonic was the one who had kidnapped Chocola and Froggy.
Amy appears in Sonic Battle as a playable character. In the story, Amy comes and asks Tails about Emerl, and Tails explains that Emerl is like Sonic's "child", However, Emerl was just a friend of Sonic. Amy takes this literally and thinks that if Sonic is Emerl's "Daddy", he must want her to be the "Mommy", and that he is testing her to see if she could handle taking care of a real child. Amy then takes Emerl away and tells him to call her "Mommy", thus making Emerl believe that Amy is actually his mother. Amy also chases after and fights Rouge when she steals Emerl for her own purposes. Amy is often considered to be one of the stronger and more reliable characters in the game since all of her attacks are fairly balanced, contain a good mixture of speed and power. Her healing ability can quickly raise her HP, and she is the third fastest character in the game.
Amy appeared alongside Sonic and the rest of the cast in Shadow the Hedgehog to try to convince Shadow to join their cause. Amy needs Shadow's help to rescue Cream and Cheese from Eggman's Cryptic Castle. No matter which mission you decide to choose, after you complete the stage she will assist you in your fight against the Egg Breaker. Oddly enough, however, she does not appear in the cut-scenes before or after the battle.
Amy is a playable character in Sonic Riders from the start. She is a Speed type racer, and has stats equivalent to Sonic's and Jet's. She joins in the EX World Grand Prix because she wants to "keep her eye on Sonic".
In Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, she finds one of the Arks of the Cosmos and, not knowing what it actually was, refused to hand it over to Jet. After being chased after by Storm, she throws it at his face and gets mad at him because he caused her to get lost. She forces him to lead her back to Sonic, but he ditches her when he finds a destroyed robot with another Ark of the Cosmos inside. She is then found by Sonic, and tells him that Storm mentioned the Gigan Rocks, a place where they could find information about the Arks. In the end of the game, Amy gives suggestions on why people started wishing on shooting stars.
Amy teams up with Cream and Vector in Sonic Free Riders in order to win the second EX Grand Prix and so she can see Sonic. In the Team Rose version of the game, they must beat 3 teams in order to win the World Grand Prix. In the end, Amy celebrates her victory and rushes to Sonic, telling him he should go on a date with her because she won but Sonic gave the look that he did not want to go.
Amy appears in Sonic the Hedgehog as an ally in Silver the Hedgehog's storyline to enlist his help in finding Sonic, not knowing that Silver is looking for him so he can kill him. Upon finding Sonic, Silver battles him and loses, but manages to catch Sonic off guard afterwards, and is able to hit him with a powerful blow, giving Silver the upper hand. However, Amy stops him from finishing Sonic off. Amy also saves the damsel-in-distress Princess Elise, as well as Sonic at one point in the story. She found out that Silver didn't kill Sonic and it was all part of Mephiles's plan to kill Sonic himself. She is played during the final level, End of the World, where she helps to revive Sonic by collecting one of the Chaos Emeralds. In the end, Mephiles along with Iblis and Solaris have been destroyed by Sonic, Shadow and Silver.
In Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Amy went with Sonic to save Knuckles, and later the world from Imperator Ix. Early on in the story Amy claims to Sonic that she has found a new boyfriend called Dexter and tries at many occasions to present him as a great boyfriend to him, but without going into much detail about him. Depending on the player's choices, Amy will reveal to Sonic that she just made him up in an attempt to make Sonic jealous.
It is revealed in Chronicles that Amy has started a club for young girls to protect themselves from bullies. When the Voxai Overmind brainwash her, she says "You never pay attention to me". Also, the player can engage in a romantic subplot between Sonic and Amy depending on the player's conversation choices. She is the first unlockable character, and she is the second playable character. She is third in order of appearance.
Amy is one of a select few Sonic characters to appear in Sonic Unleashed. She made her introduction as she did in Sonic Adventure 2's Dark Story and Silver's story in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) by hugging someone who looks like Sonic the Hedgehog. Although she hugged the right Hedgehog this time, she didn't recognize Sonic due to him being in his Werehog form. She apologized, saying that she could have sworn it was him, then ran off, causing Sonic to become depressed as he is shown that he is not the same at all in his new form. Later, after Sonic saves her from some people possessed by Dark Gaia, he dashed away. Amy later finds out about Sonic's new form, saying that although he's changed his look, he's still Sonic to her. She later helps out Professor Pickle and in one cutscene, she talks about being interested in learning (Wii/PS2 version only). She follows Sonic, Tails, Chip, and Professor Pickle to Shamar. Sonic can talk to her between levels, just like before. At one point, she asks Sonic out on a date, and he can either agree or turn her down. She later strikes hope into Professor Pickle by showing un-wavering faith in Sonic during his final battle. After the fact, Amy throws Sonic a "welcome home" party, which isn't actually shown, only mentioned.
- Main article: Nimue, Lady of the Lake
Amy appears in Sonic and the Black Knight, portrayed as Nimue, the Lady of the Lake. She gives King Arthur Excalibur, which later proves to be a mistake. Sonic backs away when he firsts meets her, because he thinks she is actually Amy. Nimue tells him that whoever holds the scabbard of Excalibur will become corrupted by its influence. She gives three tests to Sonic: First, he must free the innocent people from King Arthur's dungeon. Second, he must show compassion to those in need, and finally, he must defeat King Arthur's Knights of the Underworld. Nimue places a three day time limit for the tests to be completed. On the third day, she disguises herself as a young child and asks Sonic to rescue her "parents" and the people from her village. He completes the test, but runs out of time. She reveals herself after he tells her everyone's okay. She tells him that he has shown courage, strength and compassion. Nimue then tells Sonic that Caliburn, along with the swords of Sir Gawain, Sir Lancelot, and Dame Percival combined can stop Excalibur's immortality-giving ability. Nimue appears as the kingdom is falling into darkness and tells Sonic and the three knights to place their swords in four shrines to create a barrier around Camelot Castle. After the game, Sonic, who has been taken back to his world, explains his journey to Amy Rose, who then complains that he is lying and forgot about their date, then proceeds to attack him with her hammer as My Sweet Passion plays.
Amy appears in Sonic Colors (DS) as a non-playable character excited to see Sonic again and asks him to do a mission for her entertainment. When Sonic finished it, Amy comments that it was "dreamy" and asks Sonic to "Marry me!", causing Sonic to ditch her and leave the problem to Tails. Later, Amy finds him along with Big, and she asks Sonic to do one more mission for her. After doing it, Amy decides to have a picnic for her and Sonic. Amy then screams in joy, saying "Eating together in an Aquarium! We are so gonna date!".Which Sonic and Tails said yes to cause they were hungry and Sonic didn't see it as a date due to the fact that Big and Tails were there at the time.
Amy appears in the console version of Sonic Generations. Amy and the others were celebrating Sonic's birthday where she tries to hug and kiss Sonic, but he ignores her. Suddenly, Amy and the others were captured by the Time Eater. Amy ends up in Chemical Plant as a statue. If Classic Sonic rescues her, Amy notices how Sonic looks "younger every day" and asks about his "secret", leaving him annoyed. If Modern Sonic rescues her, Amy says she was afraid that she would never be able to "flirt with him" again, leaving him exasperated. Later, at the Center of Time, she encouraged for both Sonics, alongside Knuckles. After the final battle, Amy and the others went back to the right time and continued celebrating. She congratulates Sonic for being "great", as opposed to Knuckles' view of Sonic's performance as being "not half bad". After this, she joins the other characters in saying goodbye to Classic Sonic and Tails.
Amy also appears in a Chemical Plant mission where she helps Modern Sonic jump to higher places underwater with her Piko Piko Hammer. She also races against Classic Sonic in a Sky Sanctuary mission. She stands outside Chemical Plant, in the Hub World, giving Sonic tips on the stage as he walks by.
She also appears as a trophy in the trophy room, and her classic form was released as DLC as an Xbox 360 avatar costume.
Amy also appears in Sonic's storyline in Sonic Rivals. Amy has been turned into a card by Dr. Eggman and Sonic sets off to save both her and Tails. She also makes cameo appearances on three collectible cards. She doesn't appear in the story of Sonic Rivals 2, but she is featured on two collectible cards.
Amy is a playable character in the Party Mode of Sonic and the Secret Rings alongside Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Shadow, Cream, Silver and Blaze.
Amy appears in the Mario and Sonic game crossover as a playable character in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games.Like all the other female characters (Blaze, Princess Peach, and Princess Daisy) she sports a different outfit than her normal dress. Her dress is similar to her normal one (but different around the shoulders), with the edition of black leggings underneath it and a different pair of shoes.
Amy is a playable character in the game Sega Superstars Tennis.
Amy appears in the game Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games as an all-around type character. Her main rival is Princess Peach. Her signature move for the Wii version is Pink Typhoon and Rose Spin for the DS version. She wears a pink parka, black leggings, and pink boots.
Amy appears in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, alongside Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Shadow, Dr. Eggman and Big the Cat. Her model car is the Pink Cabriolet, an old-fashioned pink buggy with a spare tire cover etched with "AMY", and a plate on the front that says: "AMY-ROSE". Her All-Star Move is the Piko Piko Hammer, she pulls it out and madly swings it around to smash anyone unlucky enough to get in her way. Her All-Star Theme is "My Sweet Passion" from Sonic Adventure. She will return as a racer in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.
Amy also appeared in Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games as the third playable Sonic character. In her official artwork, she is shown to have a newly designed swimsuit, although it will not be her new design in all of the new games.
Amy in the main series is presented as being somewhat kind and sweet. In Sonic CD, she was referred to as an "optimistic tomboy" who loves fortunes and uses tarot cards. Because of her tomboyish nature, she became a playable character as a fighter in Sonic the Fighters. However, after Sonic Adventure, Amy had grown a more girly personality, such as an interest in shopping and fashion, but that didn't remove her tomboyish nature, as in the more recent games, Amy has become far more violent and aggressive, much to Sonic's dismay. She often shows her anger by pulling out her Piko Piko Hammer out of nowhere and usually threatens that she'll hit Sonic with it, which causes him to run away.
Amy seems to be a girly-girl and a tomboy, such as in Sonic Battle, her attraction towards "Boxercise" plays to both elements of her ever-changing personality; the exercise helping her lose weight to maintain her girlish figure, and the boxing to help her train when she's forced to fight. In Sonic Battle, she had shown a very powerful and aggressive attitude, always willing to fight, she had been training to fight by using weights. Amy is not against fighting and can fight when she needs to.
Despite her violent tendencies, Amy has a very good heart, she never gives up, and is one of the most optimistic and cheerful characters of the series. Amy is always full of hope and is always cheering on for the good side of things. She almost never seems to find anything hopeless. In Sonic Adventure, she was determined to help the Flicky who had lost his family. Amy has a few personality traits that Sonic has as well.
In Sonic Adventure 2, Amy felt strongly that there was a chance for the world to be saved and that people were basically good (as she told Shadow). Amy is also a rather likable person. Despite her being slightly annoying, she has rarely met anyone who she did not befriend (including Shadow and Blaze). Amy is a regular sweetheart, but with a strong sense of justice, a slightly tomboyish but more girly nature, and an over sweeping infatuation for Sonic.
Since 2010, after the release of Sonic Free Riders, Amy seems to be more bossy and infatuated with Sonic than before. This is probably due to the reason that Sonic games since then were more light and humorous. Amy's personality has added more a humor factor in games like Sonic Colors, Sonic Free Riders and Sonic Generations with her obsession for Sonic, which causes her to say silly and embarrassing things that she does not find very embarrassing. Sonic responds in a confused way.
- Main article: Amy Rose (Archie)
In the Sonic the Hedgehog comics by Archie, Amy is from the country of Mercia and has a cousin named Rob O' the Hedge (a reference to Robin Hood). As in other continuities, she has a crush on Sonic. In her earliest appearances, she attempted to become a member of the Freedom Fighters, but was rejected because of her young age. She then made herself older by wishing on the Ring of Acorns, but was still denied by Sally since she still had the mind of a younger girl. Eventually, however, Amy did advance enough to be accepted as a Freedom Fighter, and became an important member of the team.
- Main article: Amy Rose (Sonic X)
Amy is one of the main characters in Sonic X, an anime series which is the most recent of the Sonic the Hedgehog TV shows. This is her first appearance in a Sonic TV series (she did not appear in any of the other three American produced series).
In Sonic X, Amy is Sonic's self proclaimed girlfriend. Much the same as in the game series, her long-term goal is to get him to notice and respect her. She gets mad at Sonic's impatience and aloof attitude, which occasionally are so bad that she is driven to violence. However, she really does care about him and doesn't want him to get hurt. Sonic seems closer and more comfortable with Amy in the anime, even going so far as to bring her flowers and say he cares for her in one episode. Amy also has love daydreams about her and Sonic. Overall, her personality is more temperamental than in the games; she may threaten to and even harm her friends for things they had nothing to do with, but she still has the same kind heart that she possesses in the games.
- Main article: Amy Rose (Sonic the Comic)
Amy also appeared in the UK publication Sonic the Comic, in which she was a level-headed and pragmatic member of the Freedom Fighters (when she wasn't claiming to be Sonic's girlfriend). She also became the leader of the team while Sonic was stuck in the Special Zone. She was close friends with Tekno the Canary, and she used a crossbow in battle (rather than the Piko Piko Hammer that eventually became her trademark in the games).
Amy Rose's role in the Sonic X comic is similar to hers in the Sonic X anime.
In the comic book version, her relationship with Sonic is developed more closely, with Sonic even taking her on a date for Valentine's Day (although this was due to him having lost a bet with Knuckles). He seemed to enjoy himself, however, when Amy asked him if he would ever take her on a date again, Sonic answered "Er...Maybe?".
<img src="http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20111112025838/sonic/images/4/43/AmySonicAdventures.png" width="136" height="171" class="thumbimage" />Amy from the cover of Sonic Adventures Vol. 1.Added by Mewkat14Sonic Adventures was a two-volume, French-made comic book published by Sirène, that was released in 1994. Amy appears in the first volume ("Sonic Adventures: Dans Les Griffes De Robotnik") being kidnapped by Robotnik as bait to get Sonic. This version of Amy has the same design as in Sonic CD.
Amy possesses super speed. She is one of the few Speed Types that doesn't augment their speed with the use of a special object or power (i.e. Shadow uses his Hover Skates and Chaos Powers, Blaze uses her pyrokinesis and Fire Boost, Jet the Hawk uses extreme gear and Tails uses his twin tails). This, along with general sneakiness, allows her to be able to catch Sonic from time to time. In many games, such as Sonic Heroes, she is usually one of the speed characters. <img src="http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100204182723/sonic/images/0/04/Amyspin.gif" width="70" height="56" class="thumbimage" />Amy attacks using her Piko Piko Hammer.Amy's primary method of attack is her Piko Piko Hammer, which she keeps in Hammerspace. With the Piko Piko Hammer, Amy can inflict major damage to her enemies. She is even capable of beating Knuckles with it. Amy is rather skillful with her hammer and is able to use it in a wide variety on moves and attacks, such as performing a somersault known as the Hammer Jump, she can also use it to perform the Tornado Hammer, and a move called the Propeller Hammer, to float through the air.
In Sonic the Fighters Amy showed the ablity to drop random items on the oppents heads be it mundane like a Soccer Ball to the Weird like Bean's head. This later showed up agian in Sonic Battle with her trap move.
In Sonic Adventure and Sonic Advance, Amy lacked the Spin Jump and Spin Attack, and instead Amy could only perform a standard jump and a short leap and a headbutt attack. Later games have since given her these abilities, allowing her to perform similar to other characters.
In Sonic Adventure 2, Amy is a playable character in 2-player mode. Unlike Sonic and Shadow, she cannot perfrom the Spin Dash in this game, and can only do a somersault with her hammer in her hand. Amy also grinds and boards a little bit faster then the others as well. As with all other characters in two player mode, Amy can perform special attacks when a certain amount of Rings have been acquired; if 10 rings are collected, she can speed up like Sonic and Shadow. If 20 rings are collected, she can use a special attack called "Storming Hearts," which is similar to Sonic's "Sonic Wind" attack and Shadow's "Chaos Spear" attack. If 30 rings are collected, Amy is able to stun her opponent with her "Amy Flash" attack which freezes the opponents' controls leading them to fall into pits if done at the right time. Amy seems to have access to hammer space, as she is able to conjure a hammer out of nowhere and can summon more than one. 
It is mentioned in the manual for Sonic CD that Amy can read tarot cards, which she uses in one of her POW moves in Sonic Chronicles, "Tarot Draw". This power was also mentioned in Sonic Battle when Amy says, "My cards told me you would be here" when Sonic asks her how she knew where he was.
In Sonic & the Black Knight, Amy has a special move where is able to whack her hammer into the ground and send out a dome-shaped energy wave called "Rose Typhoon."
In Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood Amy possesses a wide range of POW moves that involves inflicting damage on the foe with extra effects, supporting her allies and inflicting status problems on the enemies. These are:
- Low Blow (ローブロー, Rō Burō?): Amy jumps up and hits a foe with her Piko Piko Hammer, possibly rendering it vulnerable.
- Spin Cycle (スピンサイクル, Supin Saikuru?): Cream lifts up Amy, then spins her around before throwing her at a group of enemies.
- Tantrum (ヒステリックブロー, Hisuterikku Burō?, lit. Hysteric Blow): Amy charges at an enemy, spinning like a tornado. This may render a foe sluggish.
- Blow Kiss (投げキッス, Nage Kissu?): Amy blows a kiss to a friend, empowering the friend to do his or her best.
- Tarot Draw (タロットカード, Tarotto Kādo?, lit. Tarot Cards): Amy foresees the future with her tarot deck, cursing a single foe.
- Flower Power (フラワーパワー, Furawā Pawā?): Big rushes forward and falls flat on his face. Cream then pushes Amy, who bounces off Big's back and lands, hammer first, on top of an enemy, stunning it.
Most of Amy's life (since Sonic CD onwards) is spent following Sonic the Hedgehog, whom she is madly in love with. While Sonic seems creeped out and annoyed by her affections, she has not given up and goes through great lengths to impress him. Even though he seems nervous and occasionally overcome by her advances, Sonic and Amy are still able to be good friends, even helping each other out if needed. Being rejected and ignored by Sonic does not seem to hurt Amy, in fact, she sees and treats Sonic as if he does love her too. Throughout the games, since their meeting, Amy has been chasing Sonic and tries to be romantic with him, sometimes it creeps him out and causes him to run away. However, it's implied that Sonic may not dislike her as much as he makes out.
In Sonic Unleashed, Sonic seemed depressed when Amy didn't recognize him as a Werehog, understanding that he isn't the same at all in his Werehog form when Chip pointed it out. When she finds out the Werehog was Sonic, she wanted to know all about how it happened, and had even mentioned that Sonic looks better in the day time, but she doesn't care about that. In one point in the game, she asks Sonic out on a date and the player can choose whether Sonic accepts or declines it.
In Sonic Battle, in Tails' story, Amy comes and asks Tails about Emerl, and Tails explains that Emerl is like Sonic's "child". However, Emerl was just a friend of Sonic. Amy takes this literally and thinks that if Sonic is Emerl's "Daddy", he must want her to be the "Mommy", and that he is testing her to see if she could handle taking care of a real child. Amy then takes Emerl away and tells him to call her "Mommy", thus making Emerl believe that Amy is actually his mother. During her story she tries hard to protect Emerl after losing him to Rouge. At the end of her story, Amy tries to get Sonic to propose to her, but he bails. None of the characters tell her the truth as they fear her anger.
In Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Amy tries to make Sonic jealous by making up "her new boyfriend" named Dexter. The player can choose whether Sonic believes it or not. If so, she will tell him that Dexter is fake.
In Sonic Riders, Amy enters the EX World Grand Prix so she can be beside Sonic, though she becomes mad when Sonic accidentally launches her into a tornado when he had to save her from Dr. Eggman and forgot about her. After getting caught in the tornado, she chases Sonic with her Piko Piko Hammer as payback for forgetting about her, even though Sonic keeps trying to apologize to her.
In Sonic and the Black Knight's ending, Sonic was explaining to Amy about his adventure in the Arthurian Legend. Amy wouldn't believe him and said, "That's the lamest excuse ever! You just forgot about our date!" Sonic tries to reason out saying that he swears that it was true, but Amy doesn't listen and pulls out her hammer. However, in Sonic Colors and Sonic Free Riders, he quickly refuses going out on a date with her.
In Sonic Generations, Amy is excited to attend Sonic's birthday. However Sonic keeps Amy away from getting too close to him (such as hugging him) by placing his hand over her face while talking to Tails. When Classic Sonic rescues Amy, Amy mistook him for the present form of Sonic and questioned on how he looks so young, whereas when the present Sonic saves Amy, she tells Sonic that she was afraid that she would never be able to flirt with him again, leaving Sonic exasperated. If Sonic gets an S rank in Chemical Plant, Amy will compliment that Sonic "knows how to get the girls" and when attaining a Red Star Ring, Amy says that she mistook the ring for an actual ring, meaning that she thought Sonic was giving her a ring for a gift or other reasons.
A running gag is when Amy makes her entrance in a game by running into other hedgehogs from the left of the screen and hugs them from behind, mistaking them for Sonic. This may imply that she occasionally forgets that Sonic is blue.
Cream the Rabbit is Amy's best friend. Since Sonic Heroes, Cream and Amy are portrayed as best friends and they share a sister-like relationship, comparable to Sonic and Tails' brother-like friendship. This fact is strengthened by Sonic Advance 3, as when they are paired together, they are given the title "Team Jubilee" and serve as a female counterpart to Sonic and Tails' "Unbreakable Bond." The two also seem to frequent together almost completely throughout Sonic Battle, except when Emerl drags one of them away. Amy is also seen searching for Cream during the level Cryptic Castle in Shadow the Hedgehog which further suggests how much she cares for her. Another suggestion is in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood when you go to recruit Cream she says "You poor thing! What are you doing out here?".
In Sonic Rush, it is implied that Amy occasionally gets angry with Cream, angry enough to chase her with her hammer as Cream shouted "Not again!" after she said that Amy was "shortsighted" in the regard of her love of Sonic when Cream introduced Blaze to Amy.
The two team up twice in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood for the moves Spin Cycle, the equivalent of Sonic and Tails' Blue Bomber move in which Cream lifts Amy up and sends her spinning into one enemy, as well damaging adjacent ones. Team Rose band together to perform Flower Power, their most potent attack in this game which involves Amy bouncing off Big with a boost from Cream and landing on a foe hammer-first.
In recent games such as Sonic Unleashed, Sonic Colors, and Sonic Generations, Amy seems to be distancing herself from Cream. She is often seen around other characters, such as Blaze, but she still remains close to Amy, as evidenced by Sonic Free Riders, but not quite as a sidekick.
Big the Cat is most likely Amy's other best friend. They fight together in Sonic Heroes, forming Team Rose. In Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood after meeting Big in the Mystic Ruins, Big states that he "heard his good friend Amy Rose" so he rushed over to see if it was really her. When Big sees Amy he becomes ecstatic and actually makes an attempt to hug her (in which Amy refuses due to the fact that he smelled from the gases in the ruins). Also, if you agree to let Big join your party he, again, becomes happy that he gets to be around Amy. Big acts like an older brother to Amy.
Miles "Tails" Prower is a lot like a little brother figure to Amy. Sometimes, she's bossy with him and many other times, she is protective and defensive of Tails, although Amy will sometimes use Tails' close connections with Sonic to find out his whereabouts and/or some current events. Nonetheless, Amy and Tails are very good friends. Although Cream is Amy's best friend, Tails and Sonic are the two people Amy is around the most because Amy is always chasing after Sonic and Tails is always with Sonic on adventures. Amy and Tails are really close because of this and always try to do their best to stop Eggman with Sonic.
The only time their friendship was slightly strained was in Sonic Battle, when Amy caught Sonic off guard. When Sonic and Tails were talking they could hear Amy scream "SONIC" off in the distance. Sonic hesitated and told Tails to deal with Amy. When Amy approached she got annoyed by how Sonic had abandoned Tails so he could get away. She demanded that Tails tell her where Sonic went but Tails told her honestly that he had no idea where Sonic could have run off to since he never told him.
Amy has only been seen interacting with Knuckles the Echidna on rare occasions.
In Sonic Heroes when playing as Team Sonic; at the beginning of the fight against Team Rose, Knuckles will side with Amy and say "Sonic, have you been messing with that young girls heart again?"
In Sonic Rush, when Amy interacted with Blaze for the second time Knuckles rushes in, and says to Blaze, "Hey, cat woman, it's payback time!" , Amy then says, "Uh-oh! What did you do to him!?" Cream tells Amy that it's a misunderstanding, with which Amy replies with "pretty typical of Knuckles". To get Knuckles to leave Blaze alone, Amy calls Knuckles a dimwit, leading to a brief argument. Knuckles replies, "I don't have time for you! I have business with that cat woman!". Amy then taunts Knuckles and says, "I know! That's why I called you a d-", daring herself that she'll call him a dimwit again, Knuckles then gets outraged and goes hot on Amy, leaving Blaze alone.
In Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, Amy budges in Knuckles' sentence in the end which caused Knuckles to be annoyed.
In Sonic Generations, Amy accidentally hurts Knuckles with a great force (which causes him to crash into a tree) after saying that Sonic "wasn't half bad" whereas she thought he was "all great". However, Amy does not notice how hard she hit Knuckles because she was busy swooning at Sonic.
In Sonic Adventure 2, they interact twice, but each time, Amy seems to gain an odd reaction from Shadow.
Amy first meets Shadow when she mistakes him for Sonic and hugs him from behind. Shadow remains still after having been caught off guard by her ambush, and does not shake her off or retort with violence. When Amy senses the lack of a reaction, she releases him, causing him to glance back at her. Amy demands his name when she realizes that he is not Sonic, but he continues to watch her quietly. After Amy notices Dr. Eggman, she also realizes the mistake she's made, and runs off screaming. During this, Shadow takes a step after her, until Dr. Eggman tells the team that he'll take care of Amy.
Later in the game aboard the ARK, Amy meets Shadow again and this time does her part in helping by begging Shadow to save the world. At first, Shadow simply replies, strangely in a non-threatening way, that it is pointless, but then Amy points out that despite people sometimes being selfish, they were still inwardly good and that saving them was right. Because of this, Shadow suddenly has a flashback of Maria begging Shadow to make people happy. When Shadow comes to his senses he goes off to fight the Biolizard, upliftingly and softly telling Amy that he has to keep his promise to Maria and her.
Amy was also the only one to see Shadow's tear after he remembered Maria's promise, making her the only person to see him cry in Sonic Adventure 2. Amy and Maria have the same insight towards humanity, thus this might be one of the reasons Shadow is nice to her, since it's unknown whether or not Shadow remembers Amy's deed in ARK.
Also, at the end of Shadow the Hedgehog, Amy shows an amount of faith and admiration for Shadow, regardless of anything bad that happened.
During Shadow the Hedgehog (video game), Shadow can choose to assist a, "Shadow, I'm so glad you're here!" Amy Rose in helping find Cream and have her fight alongside the player in the boss battle, but this time, there is no reward in return.
Depending on what story you're playing under, if you're running through gameplay on the hero selection or if you just decide to help her at all on any level, at the end of stage, Shadow benevolently advises, "If you wanna stay clear of trouble, then stay away from that Doctor." During this stage level there is a route to an unlockable cut scene that is titled, "The Miracle of Love" if you allow Shadow to comply to Amy's plea to save the world in the end, which changes the story from dark to hero story, as listed under the, "Unlockable Stage Levels" in the Game Guide Cheat Sheet sources, as well as cut scenes.
This access to the stage finale is through player's choice and does not affect the storyline.
If you allow Shadow to help Amy on the mission, he reflects on the mission (whereas on Dark---when you don't help anyone, he doesn't reflect on any of the characters; he only reflects on his considerations when the stage turns to "Hero").
Amy and Vector first encountered eachother in Sonic Heroes. When the Chaotix saw Team Rose. Vector wanted to ask Amy a question, Amy walked away and said, "If it's about a date, it'll have to wait!", Vector sparked with anger as he was not going to ask her that. So, then due to a few misunderstandings, the two teams fought against each other.
The second time the two were seen together was in Sonic Free Riders. Vector joined Amy's team along with Cream to win the prize money Eggman advertised about his Grand Prix. Vector and Amy do not seem to get along. At first, Amy blames Vector for not getting them registered for the race even when he claimed that it was not his fault as she invited him to her team 30 minutes ago. Also, when Amy pretends that she wasn't expecting her and Sonic in the Grand Prix (because she wanted to prove that "lovers" are drawn together) Vector disapproves her by calling her a "terrible actress". Amy also appears to yell at Vector and boss him around, something she doesn't do to Cream throughout the game, even though Cream is also a member of the team.

A Games Radar article called Amy's introduction "the only bitter taste" in Sonic CD, but added that she's "just a pink hedgehog here and not a whiny, annoying brat like in Sonic Adventure."  In an IGN article entitled "Smash It Up", Lucas M Thomas stated that "one of the coolest things about Amy Rose's character is her enormous, walloping hammer" that is often used for comedy in the series. 
Amy is overall very well received by fans, and is considered to be one of the series "Top 10" characters, as evidenced by popularity polls and is so far two of the only females to have a figure made by Jazzwares, with the other figure being Wave the Swallow.
- "My Sweet Passion" - Nikki Gregoroff (Unlike other characters, Amy has kept this theme song throughout her many game appearances, such as in the ending of Sonic and the Black Knight when Sonic tries to explain why to her why he didn't show up for his date).
- "Follow Me" - Kay Hanley (This theme song is shared with Big and Cream in Sonic Heroes).

- In the original release of Sonic CD in America, Amy was originally named "Princess Sally", most likely to connect her to the Sonic animated television series released that same year. However, the Sally that showed up in the cartoons was not Amy. Subsequent re-releases of Sonic CD jettison any references to Amy being named Sally. Interestingly, she was always clearly stated as "Amy Rose" in the Japanese manual for Sonic CD.

- Amy has always called her Piko Piko Hammer just "my hammer", but in her Co-op mission in Sonic Generations she calls it "my Piko Piko Hammer" being the first time she has called it by its full name, and the first time it has ever been called its full name correctly. (In Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing the Announcer calls it "The Piko Hammer".)
- Amy's bio in Sonic Chronicles calls her Amy Rose the Hedgehog.
- Amy was the first female character introduced in the game series.
- She's also the first and only female hedgehog of the series.
- In Sonic Chronicles, Amy is the strongest character in terms of Smash ability, being the only character who can reach level 3. (Knuckles and Omega can only reach level 2 Smash ability.)
- Amy apparently has the power to turn invisible, although the only game she has actively used this power in was Sonic '06. After that game's timeline was erased, she didn't turn invisible again until Sonic and the Black Knight, as Nimue.
- Amy Rose is the only member of Team Rose that is affected by the brainwashing of the Overmind Voxai in Sonic Chronicles.

The other is Doctor Robotnik.
- In Sonic the Fighters , Amy's Piko Piko Hammer looks different from the one that is shown in the more recent games, probably due to the fact that it was the hammer's first apearance.
- In Sonic Riders, Amy sports a different, racing outfit throughout the game, but in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, Amy wears her usual dress in the story cut scenes and in the story level where she races Storm. However, in the Single and Multiplayer modes, she wears the same outfit that she wore in Sonic Riders.
- Amy is the only playable character in Sonic 2006 to not travel to the future at any time during the game.
- Amy is one of the few characters in Sonic Unleashed who is not affected by the negative effects of Dark Gaia spreading over the planet.
- Amy is the only character that appeared in Sonic Rivals that didn't appear in Sonic Rivals 2.
- In the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Sonic Unleashed, Sonic makes a reference to Amy after defeating the Dark Guardian in Shamar, when he says, "I know little girls who are better with a hammer than you! Well, one, anyway."
- Ironically, in Sonic Chronicles, despite being the speed leader of Team Rose, Amy's attack is slower than other speed leaders like Sonic and Shadow. She is also the strongest attacker of her team, despite Big being the power leader.

However, while racing as her, they aren't shown.
- Strangely, Amy appears in the French guide for Sonic & Knuckles, even though she makes no appearance whatsoever in the game. In that guide, it has been said that Amy was kidnapped by Knuckles.
- Shadow's Inhibitor rings look similar to Amy's ring-cuffed gloves.
- Although she does not have her own video game like many of the other main characters, Amy does have her own mobile game called Amy's American Page One for Sonic Cafe.
- Amy is the only hedgehog character to not have a super form.
- All of the cars Amy has driven in the games have been old fashion convertables similar to how Sonic has driven sports cars and how Knuckles drives off-roaders.
- Amy's last name, Rose, can be considered a play on words. A rose is a very beautiful flower that is connected with love, but also has sharp thorns on it as well. This can be related to her connection to love and her short fiery temper but it is also a play on her color as well, because in french rose translates to pink (her fur color).
- In the Mario and Sonic series, Amy is the only playable female who is not a princess.
- Like Blaze, Amy is a speed type in the normal series, but in the Mario and Sonic series she is made into a All-Around type instead.
