Sonic Shorts is a Newgrounds Flash collaboration by The Sonic Paradox Team set in the Sonic the Hedgehog universe. As expected, the shorts parody various aspects and scenarios of the games and TV shows, but many of them contain plenty of meta-humor involving the characters' reactions to their own in-universe works.

Currently, seven "volumes" and a Spin-Off have been released; it was originally planned to end with the sixth volume, but the creators have so many unused ideas left over that they've recently completed a seventh installment. However, many collaborations were not finished, and so the seventh is entirely animated by thewax70. An eighth will follow once the other animations are finished. Many members of the team have since contributed to Sonic F as well.

The first volume can be found here, the sixth here, and The Sonic Paradox Team has uploaded the entire series to YouTube. Individual shorts can also be found on their respective creator's YouTube channels.

This collaboration contains examples of:

 Tails: Now I know!

Sonic: And Knowing Is Half the Battle!


 Amy: Hey, Sonic. Guess who lost their virginity.

Sonic: Uhm, y...

Amy: ...You did.(Holds up a bottle of chloroform)

  • Brain Bleach: A common subject of shorts featuring Eggman.
  • Brick Joke: Comes up often.
  • Carnivore Confusion: In volume 7, Chris tries to feed his furry friends, and provides them with what their real life counterparts would eat; Cream the Rabbit is in tears when Tails is served rabbit, and he loves it.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: The subject of a short featuring the forgotten Sega characters Mighty the Armadillo, Ray the Flying Squirrel, and Bean the Dynamite... who even Mighty and Ray could not remember. [Bark was left out entirely.]
  • Continuity Nod: Volume 5 is full of these to previous shorts.
  • Crossover: Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog Robotnik and SatAM Robotnik both express disapproval with Sonic X Eggman in separate skits.
  • Curse Cut Short: Sonic: *Sees instruction for barrel* "Up and Down? Up and down?!? What the fu-" *cue Time Over*
  • Fan Disservice: Eggman's latest ultimate weapon? A shot of him posing in briefs set to Right Said Fred's Wonderman.
  • Grave Humor: Knuckles's tombstone in the Omochao short.

 Here lies Knuckles. Unlike Sonic I don't chuckle. I like to flex my muscles.

He dedicated his life to the protection of a precious stone. Bit of a crap life, really.

 Omochao: You got: the Fighting Gloves! They're yellow!

Knuckles: What the hell? Why don't you just give me some gloves with "I Am Gay" written on them?

Omochao: You got: the "I Am Gay" gloves!

Knuckles: *angry growl*

    • Another one in volume four:

 Shadow: You blue idiot, you ate all the eggs!

Sonic: Yeah, so what if I did? What're you gonna do, break my arms?

  • cuts to Sonic lying in hospital bed with broken arms*

Knuckles: You really shouldn't be giving him ideas.

  • Groin Attack: Sonic defeats Metal Sonic with this.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Voice actor Game Buddy has appeared in every volume. A few of his credits include Sonic, Shadow, Knuckles, Tails, Eggman, Mighty, Bean, Big, Tails Doll, The Penguinator, Heavy, and Doctor Mario. Needless to say, this often leads to Talking to Himself.
    • Along with Game Buddy is The Chio, also appearing in every episode, providing the voice of Knuckles and Dr. Eggman.
    • Also appearing is Rina-chan, who makes a few appearances following Volume 3, usually as Elise, Amy, Rouge, Bunnie, or Sally. Oddly enough, these are usually in Flash Twister's shorts.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog Robotnik calls Sonic X Eggman and demands that he take his plans more seriously, then after the call, tells Scratch and Grounder to be careful with the parts for his bouncing raccoon cannon.

 Robotnik: We need to hitch it up to the ocean to stop Sonic once and for all!

Scratch: Yes, your maliciousness!

Grounder: This plan makes so much sense!

  Fan: Oh my god! They've got a new Sonic character! I must. draw. PORN OF IT!
