Let's take a few minutes of our lives to flatter this gorgeous purple devil. He's big. He's voiced by Duke Nukem. He can fish. He can belly flop. He can almost sort of, not really swim. His best friend is a frog, he lives in the woods and his main theme is called "Lazy Days". What's not to like?
His gameplay style in Sonic Adventure was also the best part of the game and a true revolution in 3D platforming. So thrilling, so spectacular.
