    Exclamation Why do all the characters wear gloves ????

    I've always wandered why they wear gloves , is there a specific reason why they all wear them :L ! ???? When I look at the characters , they sorta remind me of Disney characters :L , I know this seems silly , but they all wear gloves too :L are sonic characters designs based off of Disney :L ????

    Speaking for at least Sonic, he's a rubber hose character, and this is something that originated in the 1920's and 30's I believe (don't quote me on that), with characters such as Bimbo and Mickey Mouse. Anyway, the reason I remember being given for those characters was so that they could show their hand gestures more clearly. From then on it's something a lot of rubber hose characters, such as Bugs Bunny, have adopted.

    It might also have something to do with sprite limitations on the Genesis and making Sonic's features more pronounced to make up for the lack of color/space, sort of like where Mario's big nose and overalls came from. In the case of Knuckles, I guess they chose boxing gloves to emphasize the strength of his fists.

    And Daisy. But to heck with Daisy.

    Anyway, most anthros seem to have gloves. I guess it's just easier than trying to incorperate different hands.

    It's actually a reference to cartoons of the past. Decades ago, color was a premiere medium, and hands that were in the same color as the rest of the body would be troublesome to see. As a result, cartoon characters wore white gloves to make the hands stand out. Almost every Sonic character wear gloves as a tribute to this staple.
