Rouge the Bat, our favourite bodysuit wearing, cleavage showing, sexy bat we all love! Or do we?
Some people think since the debut of this club's fave character, she is the slut, whore or even sexually active character of the Sonic series. And that's just because she's the 'sex symbol' of the series. This article is going to show that just because she's a bat in a bodytight suit, has big breasts, cleavage and lots of make-up doesn't conclude to a slut, through canon evidence. Video games, comics and Sonic X.

First of all, she is a flashy dressed up character yes. But she does not show overly sexaul behaviour that sluts and whores would. Why? Well, SEGA wouldn't dare to push their sexy character beyond the limits for a 3+ game, or else the parents would sue them. And then Sonic would cease to exist because making her overly sexaul. Now onto canon evidence.

First I'm obviously going to start with her debut game, Sonic Adventure 2. Intended to be Knuckles rival and love interest, their rivalary and romantic interest seems to be no more than a few arguements, Knuckles saving her and their brief talk afterwards. They do act like their about to kiss before Rouge decides to act totally bitchy about him simply rescueing her. The only reason Knuckles saved her is that at that point she still had a few pieces of the Master Emerald. So if he left her to fall then not only would she die but it'd also be goodbye to those pieces. During their conversations Rouge doesn't flirt with Knuckles, along with other males in the game. After getting rescued you may consider her teasey line, 'Your such a creep!" as flirting, but she is most likely marely mocking his attempts at heroics. Overall flirting hardly exists.

In her next game Sonic Heroes, she spends most of the game with a revived Shadow and rebelling Eggman robot Omega. In this game there's a noticeable personality shift. Going from selfish to pretty sympathetic, especially once players find out Shadow may be an Eggman robot. Shadow also shows no more interest in her that's beyond friendship, noticing this Rouge doesn't make any advances. This also resurfaces in Sonic06 where she also spends most of the game with Shadow, notices that he shows no romantic or sexaul interest in her and yet again, makes no advances. A slut/whore would still make advances whether or not the person shows romantic or sexaul interest in them.

In Shadow The Hedgehog she also makes no advances on any male characters, and fails to show any flirty behaviour. So it seems as if her flirty and sexy attitude intended for her was dropped after being partly developed. Her manner of dress and showing cleavage in a tight bodysuit seems to be more for the audience rather than her fellow offical characters. Also being a G.U.N agent she'll obviously have been trained in martial arts and weapons training. Now leading to despite her looks she really doesn't use her sexuality in the console games to get her way.

Now we come to 'handheld canon', proof from handheld game console games like Sonic Battle, Sonic Rivals 2 and Sonic Chronicles. In Sonic Battle and Sonic Rivals 2 she is obviously more flirty than her main console counterpart. But she does it to the point that all the male characters are fed up with her. In one of the two games Knuckles simply goes into a rage upon hearing her name. Also showing very little kindness of all the males to her.

Handheld Rouge in the end comes off as completely clueless. Believing acting the way she does is what the guys want but in reality, it annoys the heck out of them. She fails epically at every attempt and fails to come to ends with it. Whether with Shadow, Sonic, Knuckles or even Tails she recieves nothing but anger. However this does not mean she's a slut. Sluts are more openly sexual, grab crotches and OFFER SEX. She seems more comparable to a clueless girl who doesn't know how to get a boyfriend and doesn't realize her attempts AREN'T WORKING!

Let's compare Handheld Rouge to Lwaxana Troi from Star Trek. Both of them are over-eagar and clueless women who think they're totally unresistable to guys but really they just annoy them. Only during their more serious moments the other characters and sometimes the audience will actually be happy with their presence.

In Sonic X they decided to use SEGA's flirty Handheld Rouge, only for it to as well fall apart in failure. And unlike Handheld, looks stupid and an idiot in the process, coming off as nothing more than fan service. Her pursuit of Knuckles in Sonic X seems to go hardly any further than their relationship in the games. It's also either she's too brainless to figure out her doesn't like her, or she really is exceedingly cunning and does it to do nothing more than annoy him.

In Archie comics Rouge wants Knuckles, but marely as a possession. If she wants him as a possession then she's USING him, unlike sluts who think every person they like is a SEX OBJECT and purposely jump from person to person. Anyways, Julie-Su gets in the way so they get at each others necks often. Julie-Su once calls her a slut, but she was most likely using it as an insult and she gives no further evidence that she is.

However this may not unwaver people's views on the slut thing. For most series with sexually dressed characters usually are slut like. So people therefore think they all are. Also, Amy was made to encourage more girls to play, Cream to encourage little girls, Wave and Blaze to encourage older, tom-boyish girls. So that leaves Rouge to WAY older people who play series that have at least one sexy female in it. Also fanon rarely follows the canon so they get away with portraying Rouge as a slut who uses her looks to get her way. And out of sticky situations, seduce guys and over a hundred more reasons.

This is the end. If any Shadouge or Knuxouge fans have been offended by proof then keep believing in your couple. They may become more likely to happen once Sonic no longer exists, because you can also use fanfiction. Fanon writers, artists etc., how you portray Rouge is your buisness, not mine. So sorry to all how think they've been offended by this article
Overall, no matter how much proof we give to say she's not a slut, I think with some people it's gonna stay that way.
