What's your favorite thing about Nack?
Oh man I have to pick just one thing?????
I have to say it’s how… goofy he is.
I know some folks like to portray him a bit more seriously but like… even in his debut game, he was a doofus.
He’s not stupid - he just makes dumb choices because his ego gets the better of him. As he himself pointed out in the comics, he’s caught Sonic at least twice, by himself. He kidnapped Sally (and got his nuts cronched but still). Post-reboot, he had a clear shot at both Sonic and Knuckles and very likely would have gotten the job done if Metal Sonic hadn’t appeared.
He’s clever, but he’s also a very fun character to watch because even when he’s being the universe’s chew toy, he’s still a very real threat to Sonic and the others.
Like, he’s just a really fun character. And I love how different people will balance his personality differently - some writers like to write him a bit more seriously, while others exaggerate the goofiness. It’s all good.
I mean, I also could go on about how I love how “>:D” he gets when things are going his way and his odd temper, his ego, or his relationship with the rest of Team Hooligan.
… Can I just answer this by saying everything? My favorite thing about Nack the weasel is everything.
