Not that it matters, since the Sonic world seems to be equal parts "loosely based on the real world" and "we're making stuff up."Kogen wrote:Since he lives on a floating island, I'd assume it isn't Mexico or Brazil. If he's a wigger or not is something else entirely. From what I've gathered, his personality would be a mixture of Mesoamerican and African. I've never seen him act Iberian(ex: Spanish) in any way.
Although, the guys at Wikipedia swear that Sonic comes from the actual Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean. The one time I tried to tell them that most Sonic locations (especially during the Genesis era) were given generic names and weren't necessarily meant to be represent real-life locations, the local Wiki Zealot told me to fuck off, since I was wrong because he said so. I didn't care enough to challenge him again.
So yeah, Knuckles is Mexican, Brazilian, Peruvian, Jamaican, probably Guatemalan, and for the hell of it, Colombian. No, not in descent. In nationality. He was born in all of this places.
