Rouge the Bat in Sonic 1

By AsuharaMoon

It took her time, but the most well known treasure hunter who debuted in Sonic Adventure 2 finally landed on the classic 2D territory!

This hack was mostly done primarily on the spriting/artistic side, although there's a few noticeable changes and details aside of giving her Knuckles' gliding and climbing moves, in order to bring a more enjoyable experience! (ex. now you can climb on almost every wall in every stage!)

I hope you all enjoy it!


  • A/B/C: Jump
  • Down + A/B/C: Spin Dash
  • Jump + A/B/C: Gliding
  • Wall + Up/Down: Climbing
  • (Only in midair) A/B/C: Forced Rolling
  • (Only in midair or climbing) Down + A/B/C: Drill Drive


  • E-122-Psi: Coding and feedback (Wouldn't make it without him!)
  • Zig Sonar: Original Rouge sprites
  • FireRat: Coding/Fixing Support
  • Aier: Betatesting
  • Mercury: Demo recording tool

Nice Work on this hack! I found the new moves such as the drill drive very useful. Hoping to see more updates in the future.

Even though her abilities are mostly similar to Knuckles's, this is very well done.
