A little one-off comic idea I'd had in my mind since playing "Sonic Adventure DX" again recently.

It had occured to me that Big the Cat - that strong, fat but gentle and much-maligned maine-coon character from the Sonic world - had the storyline that was least integral to the plot... fishing in various locations to retrieve his companion Froggy (who, being possessed by Chaos' tail, was constantly running away apparently to search for the rest of the monster)

But then, on the other side of the coin, while Big's story lends little to the game, he himself still gets a rare honour. Along with Sonic, Tails and Eggman themselves, he is the only other character in the game who is actually able to meet every other character in the cast - whether through discovering them standing around on the Adventure Fields at some stage or other, or in the official running storyline. Yes, he even meets Tikal and Chaos! :XD:

This series of comic-panels shows a summary of Big's adventure, particularly concentrating on his meetings and (to keep the story going) the highlights of his travels, with my own humour thrown in to poke a bit of fun at it. ;)

Big the Cat and every other character here is Copyright © The Sonic Team.
Leroy "Hydrex" Rudderbuck the Otter (who cameos at the end) is my own Sonic-inspired character.

As you see, even the passive-natured Big was pretty annoyed at him!

I guess that falls under the same category. :XD: I think of him as being a bit slow and simple-minded - not mentally retarded or anything. He's just living his life quietly, not bothering too much about being one of life's geniuses. But at least he has a big heart with a caring nature, and I like that about him.
The big brother instinct really showed in Sonic Heroes, when he promised to watch out for Cream when she was scared - and when he threatened the Chaotix "It's not nice to tease my friends!" ...that was probably a rare instance of seeing him angry! :giggle:

Well, in any case, I never really saw Big as totally dumb - just... a bit simple. He's a warm uncomplicated character, trying to just live his own quiet life. That's what I like about him.

He has no intellect whatsoever he is fixated and being simple minded well he is a very slow thinker and he is a fattest character unlike eggman eggman is the second fattest eggman should've used a biggest robots to kill big but no he used a cunning stradagy not only he beats enemies but he also saves him and that big isn't a threat anybody knows that.

Too many, I fear... I feel sorry for him that people hate the character just because they can't get their heads around his fishing stages! I rather got into them, myself, once I figured out a strategy.
Then again, I also enjoyed the Werehog stages more than the Day stages in Unleashed! I'm always breaking convention, it seems! :XD:

Hmmm, perhaps you might like to see what kind of supporting role he plays in my "Hydrex Adventure" feature (it's a two-parter, but only because Flash couldn't hold enough RAM to export it in one piece)

OK! ;) (It's in my Flash folder - a spoof of Sonic Adventure, with a couple of my characters involved in a similar plot... Hydrex & Pearl were still in their old Sonic-style design in this - the design change came too late for me to bother to change it in the Flash)

[My Theory]
Eggman gained access to the ruins of Pylon 4, a structure that was attached to the Space Colony ARK before a time travel event happened that caused the structure to be flung 26 years into the past and arrive above Mobius, it was also the place where Eggman was born at. The station was destroyed in a conjoined effort by the Never Lake Guard and an Earth Ship that was also accidentally sent into the past from the year 2202, because it threatened Mobius with its own unique version of the Eclipse Cannon, that only needed one Chaos Emerald in order to fire a devastating blast. As Pylon 4 plummeted from the heavens, Eggman was sent even further into the past, essentially forgetting that his kind tried to destroy Mobius. Pylon 4 was discovered at the bottom of the ocean, its' super-advanced technologies still able to function after 4 years of seawater damage.

and is generally believable of how Eggman arrived on Mobius without knowing that he was from Earth and was surprised when he found out about Geralds' Diary after hacking into G.U.N. in SA2
