Now this a Sonic character worth hating for. And comparing her to Chris Thorndyke is idiotic.

A Character Worth Hating
I guess the main reason why people compare Chris to Elise is because they think both of them are pointless human characters that get too much focus despite the show/game being named after the main character of the franchise, and people also seem to think that Chris and Elise each replaced a friend of Sonic, like Chris replacing Tails and Elise replacing Amy (according to Sonamy shippers)
That always happens when a new character shows up. Sonic is paired with them for the majority of the running time. And even though Sonic X tended to give Chris too much focus in some episodes, a lot of focus was still given to the video game characters as much as Chris, and the real problem is that Sonic doesn't get much screen time as the other characters in some of the episodes. But at least when Sonic is on screen, the show still gives him a great amount of focus, too. And at least Chris has outstanding character development and begins to stop being so dependent on Sonic while Elise doesn't, and Chris begins to become a whole lot more useful with his new skills he gained over six years. Seriously, comparing Elise to Chris is like comparing Jake Lloyd to Haley Joel Osment. And might I also mention that Elise has a damsel status that outclasses Princess Peach? Chris was a damsel too, but he was a damsel in only a few episodes.
