Petition to SEGA, Paramount Pictures

Save the Freedom Fighters by bringing them back to the Sonic franchise!

Princess Sally Acorn, Nicole the Hologram, Bunnie Rabbot, Antione DeCoolete, Rotor the Walrus, and all these other non-game characters from the Sonic franchise don't have a home anymore! They need you're help!     Original post: (11/25/17): On July 19th Sega announced the end of their partnership with Archie Comics. On October 9th IDW publishing, the new publisher of the Sonic comics, announced that they will be "starting fresh". Meaning that they will do a hard reboot, thus putting an official end to the longest running licensed comic of all time. Despite the fact that the fans wanted this series to continue and that there was already a reboot that occurred in 2013.   When asked about the fate of one of the key staples of the comics, Sally Acorn and the Freedom Fighters of Knothole. They responded by saying "Stay Tuned". While this response doesn't really mean "no", it doesn't really mean "yes" either. If anything this shows that IDW is still not certain on what direction they will take this series in and considering how Sega treats their material that is not in their main games, we shouldn't just wait around and do nothing.  If our voices are not loud enough, these characters could disappear forever! since they are unable to progress in the sonic franchise these days for some unclear reason.  Sega may see these characters as meaningless names and drawings, but to us they are family. Especially since most of these characters ( Sally, Antione, Rotor, and Uncle Chuck) debuted way back in 1992 with the release of issue #0, meaning that they pre-date most of the game characters like Knuckles the Echidna (1994) and Amy Rose (1993). Let alone the fact that these characters have very unique qualities that make them stand out amongst other characters in this franchise. It would be a betrayal to the legacy of the Sonic franchise and the fans of these characters if they are not given a home as mainstays in the IDW series. Only you can help us save these characters from a medialess limbo.  Update (9/5/2018): Ten in a half months later after posting this on November 25th 2017. A lot has happened involving both the information on these characters and were certain companies and people stand on them. First some good news. We have become the most signed Sonic themed petition on Change.org. Beating the petitions like the classic Sonic petition, and the petition that tried to green light Sonic Adventure 3. Also, both IDW and Sega has made it clear that they acknowledge the demand for these characters to return multiple times and they have even stated that the door is still open to them making a come back. Meaning that they are indeed not ruling them out of the franchise like many fans feared they would (though it is possible that this petition might have played a role in that).  But that brings us to the bad news. Unfortunately there is one thing stopping these characters from returning to the main IDW Sonic comics, and that is the man who was once credited for being the writer who "saved them", Ian Flynn. There have been various sources from that have researched this possibility, and the evidence is just too great to ignore. Especially since he has gone out of his way to backpedal on a previous statement by saying that Sega didn't own the characters, despite that a simple look through any of Sega's legally owned martial in the public records of the United States copyright office would prove otherwise. Let alone that he stated Sticks the Badger can come in despite being from a branch of the Sonic franchise similar to where the Freedom Fighters are from. And considering the large amounts of control he has been given over the book resulting in the questionable level of quality the IDW Sonic series has so far, It isn't very suppressing that this petition has been rather slow these past four months.  But thankfully, Sega's mind set has become far more open in the recent years. From including the once obscure Mighty and Ray in both Sonic Mania and it's animated stream show, to Having modern Sonic games contain Western Sonic features like Sonic Forces adapting a similar setting to the fan favorite TV show, Sonic Satam. Plus according to a couple of our fellow supporters, IDW are considering making other Sonic comics based on other branches of the franchise, and have already begun hiring other writers. So IDW has thankfully provided other ways to for Sally and her crew to return to comics as well.  That is why, as of typing this, This petition will expand it's course a bit to focus more  on bringing the Freedom Fighters into other media, not just comics. Because as long as Ian Flynn is in control of IDW's main book, we will continue to have slow progress and The Freedom Fighters will never be given their proper come back. Thus we are now focused on brining these characters back in full force. Remember, you can still help save these characters from a medialess limbo.  Let's show Sega just how much the community wants these characters back.

Get HelmetRoyale back before it’s too late

[Picture is the Helmet Royale Player Avatar]  Made by Robin CoM  We the people of North Cross School believe we have the right to our choice of bringing back HelmetRoyale. We have played the game for over half a year. It was fun. We played when we had a moment off class, but we NEVER played during class. We got legendaries and colts, bombers and hydras. But it wasn’t just us playing with fancy gadgets over a screen. We could play with friends. If we were tired of the assignments, we had some peace whipping it out during study hall. That is the problem. The school banned HelmetRoyale until we venture home to connect to the WiFi, every day. A couple reminders why this isn’t fair: 1) Study hall, or seventh period, begins at 2:30. Sometimes, during sports, there is study hall until 3:10. There’s also people who don’t do a sport for seventh period. If we want to relax for a bit, how would we do that if the game is banned?  2) Too many games are banned, and this will lead to more games being banned. YouTube was unbanned for teachers- and students haven’t been using it at all during school! If this game is banned, slowly all the experiences we love to play will be as well. Soon other games similar to the original game, Helmet Royale, will disappear. 3) The iPads are ours. The school had control of them via JAMF, a program that restricts our apps, background, and safari. With this, we don’t have private mode in safari, our backgrounds switch to the logo every morning, and our apps disappear. It’s obvious why the apps switch, but it’s a bit more questionable about the background and other limitations set by us. It isn’t fair to limit our entertainment. The iPads are rightfully ours, and the school shouldn’t have to control the sites we use.  We do understand why this beloved game is banned. However, it isn’t fair to ban it after school. It is even banned while people are at home during the school day, because of our iPads. BRING HELMET ROYALE BACK!!!

Petition to Nintendo

Make The Boss from Saints Row IV and Johnny Gat from Gat Out of Hell join Super Smash Bros

This Petition is not a joke. Please share to give proper support Aug 21, 2018, Deep Silver is announcing that the 3rd version of Saints Row called Saints Row The Third is coming to Nintendo Switch (Note it is already released on May 10) and Super Smash Bros Ultimate will be released on December 7, 2018 (Another Note: That was already released). Now its the time to see the Boss from Saints Row quote "Hail to The Chief". Saints Row is one of my favorite video game franchises because you can play as a created character in an open-world game. It's like Grand Theft Auto but gets even crazier. In Saints Row IV you can use superpowers like using the ability to use super jump, super sprint, force field, telekinesis, blast, buff, stomp, and my favorite is death from above (A move where you can dive yourself into a nuke) So I decided that I chose The Boss from Saints Row because he would be a perfect fit and needs to be in Super Smash Bros with his default avatar of Saints Row IV wearing his purple Presidential suite, Sim Suit or the Iron Saint Armor. But I rather prefer seeing the Boss from Saints Row IV in his Iron Saint Armor so he can interact other characters in the roster for those who already played Saints Row IV. It is true that he is an M-Rated character but don't forget that Snake from Metal Gear is an M-Rated Character too who joins the SSB. Another update is that Deep Silver wants Johnny Gat to join the Super Smash Bros. Well I also agree with this. In Twitter Official Deep Silver @deepsilver Tweeted  "Add Johnny Gat to Smash you cowards" Which may be calling fans of Waluigi, Bowsette or other SSB and Saints Row Fans who cannot stand up and give support for him but who knows? However, that tweet got deleted Anyway in Gat Out of Hell there are 5 endings: Reunited in Heaven, King of Hell, New Home, Recreate and Retcon and Questions Answered I would like to see Gat that takes in King of Hell or New Home Just like The Boss Gat has similar abilities but different you can use Super Sprint, Flight, Stomp, Summon, Blast and Aura in Gat out of Hell. The best part he can summon knives as his takedowns. He would also be a perfect fit wearing his outfit from Gat Out Of Hell If the SSB fandom wanted another 2 fun characters who can fight with blood. This would be a perfect duo for them
