I just noticed something rather disturbing about Blaze in Sonic 2006...
Not only did Mephiles not acknowledge her, like… at all… But no one else but Silver even interacted with her.
Sonic should have noticed her when Team Sonic saw Mephiles talking to her and Silver:
She has the least amount of playable involvement in the game, and isn’t really plot relevant aside from being the final vessel of Iblis.
There’s no special missions for her.
The NPCs don’t even talk to her.
And she only talks to Silver.
She’s only around Silver when he’s either alone, or has at least one person around him, and she’s the one who suggests what he should do next.
He freaks out when he can’t find her.
She watches him intently when he’s interacting with people he either doesn’t trust fully, or is just learning to.
She urges him to go in the right direction when needed.
Not to mention that she lived in a world 200 years ahead of Sonic’s time… even though she knows Sonic.
It all makes sense now.
There is no “Sonic 06 and Sonic Ruse Blaze Paradox Confusion”…
BECAUSE BLAZE NEVER EXISTED IN SONIC 06
SHE WAS A FIGMENT OF SILVER’S IMAGINATION ALL ALONG.
SHE WAS HIS IMAGINARY FRIEND.
SHE DIDN’T DIE AT THE END OF SILVER’S STORY. SHE LEFT BECAUSE SILVER DIDN’T NEED HER AS A GUARDIAN ANYMORE, BECAUSE MEPHILES AND IBLIS COULD NO LONGER HARM HIM IN ANYWAY.
WHAT THE HECK, SEGA?!
