There are a lot of people saying and wanting Maria to be reincarnated as a Hedgehog. Oh why people, why?
I've been hearing lots of this demands from various people, not to mention in Deviantart. For example:
"I hope SEGA will turn Maria into a hedgehog"
"SEGA should do something about Maria and reincarnate her as a hedgehog"
"I really love Maria, too bad that she died. Why won't SEGA turn her into a hedgehog?"
Q: Will SEGA turn Maria into a hedgehog?
A: There is a slight chance for SEGA to turn Maria into a Hedgehog. So it is like a 85%-No and 15%-Yes. Or maybe, it might be a disappointing- NO.
If SEGA "DID" turn Maria into a hedgehog, there will be a few illogical things like:
Maria was dead 50 years ago inside the Space Colony ARK, her grandfather was caught by the G.U.N soldiers and was sentenced to death when he reached the G.U.N Headquarters (noticed the sound of shooting in Sonic X when he had finished talking), at that time, there was NO genius other then Professor Gerald Robotnik which is unreasonable when Maria was put in some sort of cryogenic tube and it reincarnated her as a hedgehog. If there was a genius and a person back then and put Maria into the tube, then who was it? THERE IS NO GENIUS SURVIVOR in the ARK, they were all killed by the G.U.N soldiers. And if there was a person back then, then he/she must be a genius to know how to activate the cryogenic tube. But, like I've explained before: There is no genius survivor during the ARK attack.
If Maria was reincarnated into a Hedgehog, then there would be no motivation for Shadow to keep on with his revenge on humans. That would ruined Shadow's reason to live, to avenge those who killed Maria.
During Maria's living, the professors including Maria's grandfather, was during research on Shadow and immortality, Shadow was incomplete at that time (yes, I know he's fully formed and perfect , but he's still not complete okay?), when the G.U.N boarded the ARK and killed almost everyone, Maria survived. It was then a G.U.N soldier spotted Maria hiding, terrified, she ran into the experiment room where an-almost-complete-Shadow was asleep in a tube and released him and ran along with him. There is no logical explanation where Shadow's DNA was shared with Maria when she was put asleep in the cryogenic tube, Shadow was incomplete at that time and Gerald Robotnik didn't took Shadow's DNA.
Only majority of the Western fans drew Maria in a hedgehog form, while the Japanese fans drew her as a human (at least the Japanese fans knows Maria better), SEGA is a multinational video game software developer and an arcade software and hardware development company headquartered in Japan (based on Wikipedia), if SEGA followed the Western fandom to reincarnate Maria as a hedgehog, then what about the Japanese fandom? Will there be an explanation for the Japanese? NO. SEGA is also in Japan, everyone. Don't be so selfish.
If Maria is turned into a Hedgehog, what is the reason for SEGA to do so? For her to be paired up with Shadow? In need of more girl Sonic power? No. SEGA can create more Sonic character if wished so (take Wave from the Babylon rouges for example). There is no need to turn Maria into a hedgehog or reincarnate her when SEGA can create more female characters.
SEGA has really no need to. No offence to the Maria Robotnik lovers, but it's better if she stays dead. She can now rest in peace and reunite with her family that she yearns to meet and also with her grandfather. Why do you need to change her into a Hedgehog when she can now rest in peace?
When Maria died, the ARK was empty and there was no one who lived, some got killed, some got taken back to the G.U.N Headquarters. The people who died there was left to rot. There was no one. Maria couldn't survived. When she had released Shadow into Earth using some sort of capsule, notice that there was a hole there where the capsule was released. She might've dropped from the hole, leaving her dead in infinite space. No one can retrieve her body if so.
From *NatariSaru : Even if Maria had survived G.U.N's attack, she wouldn't be able to escape since there was only one capsule left and she was the only one who knew how to release them. More likely, she would've been imprisoned and murdered alongside her grandfather or she would've did from NIDS (her disease) eventually since it is another form of AIDS. Hiding would've also been impossible since the soldiers knew about pretty much every nook and cranny on the ARK and woulv'e found her sooner or later, or she wouldv'e died of starvation since there wouldn't have been nourishment of any kind left after the colony's shutdown had she remained hidden if at all.
There's all what I need to say for now. Think about it yourself with logic. I wrote this not to mess up with the Maria Hedgehog lovers, but rather to make everyone realized that SEGA really has no need to turn her into a hedgehog. Thank you all for taking your time to read this and have a very good day.
P/S: Oh, for surely, I'm not a part of SEGA so I don't know if SEGA will turn her into a hedgehog, I just stated my explanation of this matter. So don't come yelling to me saying "You're not SEGA, you don't know anything, buh!" like that. Those who reply to this with sensitive comment, then I tell you now not to, why? I'll flag your comment as spam and immediately will block you if needed so. Again, thank you for reading this and have a good day.
