Listen, over the years I've given Sonic the Hedgehog a hard time. I'll admit it. It's come to my attention that I may have been a LITTLE unfair.

All of time and space in the Sonic multiverse shattered to pieces! How? Get ready Loyal Theorists, this is a bumpy ride!

    not gonna lie when the video hit 0:40 i got so many happy memories i peed a little

    It’s simple really because sonic is so fast you can spin in a circle forward to go forward in time then go backwards to go back in time

  • Olls84 (Ollie)
    Olls84 (Ollie)

    Good theory but since Sonic is running at normal speed when time travelling in Sonic CD some people (as well as myself) say that he is running at 88mph and that the time posts labelled past and future run on time stone energy and give Sonic the same power as that car from back to the future.

    Sonic knows what he's doing and get close to going faster than the speed of light slow down for you do Sonic have enough time to react to what he's doing

  • JuryRigged

    Alright, I'm not a theoretical physicist, but I'm *pretty sure* that's a terrible explanation of time dilation and the 'negative' part was just... no?

  • Adventures of the Legendary Gamer

    14:30 well i ain't no sience guy, but this is what i think. so sonic 2 time travels 5 minutes back to the past and meets sonic 1. my theory is that sonic 2 is just normal matter. i mean you said it time travel is possible, so wouldn't the matter sonic 1 is made of be the same as sonic 2? and even if they didn't touch, and sonic 1 proceeds to time travel, sonic 2 would still be made of exotic negative mass. i mean just because ssonic 1 is gone doesn't mean sonic 2 receives his mass, right?

    Does matt patt know that his theory about sonic being slow has been completely debunked for a while and all the stuff he got wrong in that video?

    too much seince

  • Jon Stephenson
    Jon Stephenson

    I mean... that supports my personal theory that the safest and smartest time travel must be limited to time when you are around. Knowing where you were minimizes the chances of paradoxical implosion

  • Kocho

    MattPatt I don’t think you should try to give an alien who can utilize seven magic God-like(or basically the God for their universe) gems in order to do pretty much anything and can move at the speed of sound as normally as a human can walk Earthly limitations. Sonic isn’t the only one with special abilities either, most of the Mobian’s are very strong like Amy. Others can fly like Cream the Rabbit and Tails. I wouldn’t be surprised if their biology was nothing more than a bunch of mutations of animals, aliens and even gods! All from the Sonic franchise’s canon of course.

    This video in a nutshell: Sonic can't run faster than time! *or can him?* **Proceeds to teach relativity 101**

  • Zynexion

    So that means everything with future tru KS couldn't happen But thats an anine about aliens that can literally destroy planets with a wave of their hand

  • sssamurai

    Why did no one tell me that there’s a literal universe killing anime protagonist version of sonic? That’s awesome.

    Damn I've been geicoed

  • that one guy
    that one guy

    A few things 1.first of all, in a conversation with omega in sonic colours ds. who is one of eggmans best robots analyses sonics speed and notices he can move faster than light. 2. I'm pretty sure the signpost in cd is a powerup that lets him time travel or let him break light speed 3. Archie comics aren't canon to the games lol, sonic comics and games are two different things

  • GreenToast

    Keep in mind he did this whole thing in his standard form, imagine what he would do in super form

  • mohsina ashraf

    I have one question, if sonic touched himself in the past how big would the explosion be? Cz I'm expecting a universe annihilating explosion bcz its sonic so anything with sonic cannot be good so if i get an answer like : explosion like a grenade I'm gonna be dissapoined

  • Shah Jelani
    Shah Jelani

    U think there is a simple solution have sonic go to the other side of the universe, make a suit out of something that's not on earth, go back in time and never take off the suit. You would probably have to also have an oxygen tank and other things too

  • here's flamy
    here's flamy

    matpat to any other character:well he can just do that matpat to sonic:maybe he can do that but if he does he will die literally any person loves everysingle one of them and thinks matpat is unfair to sonic (including me):stop the stop biased comment and be fair to sonic as well

  • Telman Najafov
    Telman Najafov

    but if you search how fast is sonic it says that he is the speed of sound that means that even if he ran 99% the speed of light he could never actually run with the speed of light only the flash has the ability to run the speed of light or possibly faster

    What if a being went at yoctosecond speed? Obviously it would break reality but what exactly would go down?

  • Jojo

    i think you mist something isn't it like that than time and space are connected and if you go faster than light speed you will simply diapers from the Universe and also the atoms in your body holding together with the power of light so if you supas that limit you body would just could not hold together anymore so you would disappear. corect me if i am WONG PLS

    Wouldnt this make a problem with the avengers time traveling

  • TH3

    wait so how many chilly dogs would sonic have to eat per day in order to maintain a healthy balance considering running burns calories so running as much and as fast as sonic does wouldn’t he be burning through this

  • TH3

    so time dilation is basically super hot?

  • TH3

    wouldnt this be more of like a comic/book theory

  • TH3

    if you ever feel useless, just remember, sonic has a car

      @The Weirdo Channel / Rainbow Puppy Flash is not Faster than sonic. Canonically, Flash can run with 2,532 mph. Sonic can run around Light of Speed, which is not a Theory.

    • The Weirdo Channel / Rainbow Puppy
      The Weirdo Channel / Rainbow Puppy

      Oh nevermind flash is faster than him

  • the_armada

    Here's my theory: the Lorentz factor is what determines the amount of time dilation or length contraction experienced. The part of the Lorentz factor which is important and changes is (v/c)^2. Therefore, in order to get more and more extreme time dilations and length contractions, all we have to do is alter c. So, if sonic was in a universe where c is jusy a different value, this could help explain some of his time traveling
