Princess Elise the Third
Princess Elise the Third (Princess Elise or Elise) is a major character in the game Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). She is Sonic's love interest and suffered from her father being killed when she was young.
Why She Sucks
- Elise's biggest flaw is the fact she is excruciatingly bland. She is so one-dimensional and forgettable that she was never seen again in a Sonic game.
- She is so much of a damsel in distress, but not as much as Princess Peach (though she isn't that bad).
- She serves little to no purpose to be a character in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. She was meant to be Sonic's love interest, which is incredibly out-of-place since she is a human character and barely has anything in common with him.
- On top of that, her romantic relationship with Sonic is promoting bestiality, since she is a human and Sonic is an animal.
- She became universally hated by fans in the scene where she kisses Sonic in the lips when he was dead!
- Her design makes her look like a creepy and lifeless mannequin.
- She can't defend herself. Even though she has powers, she can't protect herself from being kidnapped, which happens five times! Instead, she decides to let Sonic save her. One could see her as Princess Peach's much blander, forgettable, and helpless counterpart.
- And even IF she couldn't control them, she could at least find something to use as a weapon instead of being the same old Damsel-in-Distress.
- She is very annoying like Omochao.
- Elise's backstory is extremely touching.
- She has some development.
- Despite being bland, she has a caring and protective demeanor.
- Her theme song is pretty good.
- It's nice to see that she revived Sonic, say what you will about the kiss.
- Her Japanese voice acting is good with Maaya Sakamoto (Same deal with her Engish voice acting with Lacey Chabert).
Princess Elise the Third received largely negative reviews from critics and fans alike, and is one of the notorious criticisms the Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) videogame had received. And because of that, she has become the most hated Sonic the Hedgehog character in the game.
