A mascot that represents Sega? Okay, somehow i've got to throw together a design that embodies the qualities of Sonic, Football Manager and Total War.
I'm guessing Aliens has been dropped from this equation.

I was thinking of a Football Manager brandishing a spear and shield (adorned with the Sega logo) with hair styled like Sonic's Quills and also his trainers.
Such a majestic beast would be a one man army with supreme speed, strategy and combat prowess!

I would first need to step inside the mind of someone with a severe mental illness and observe their fascination with Sonic and his shitty friends.

The only reason if agree that it should happen is that they've tainted the series so badly that its a mere shell of its former glory. Other than that, meh.

Tails and knuckles are cool. I can tolerate shadow and I honestly don't know anything about the rest of them. But super sonic is literally the best thing to happen in video games.

Here's the thing. Mascot characters don't live and die by their design alone. Mario isn't exactly an appealing character, when you break it down, but his games are generally great so he's popular. Sonic would be a fine mascot if the games didn't suck.
