|First Appearance||Sonic the Hedgehog CD|
Amy Rose, nickname Rosy the Rascal, is a pink hedgehog who made her debut in Sonic CD.
Amy was originally based on a minor character in a short Sonic manga in 1992, and was later adapted by Kazuyuki Hoshino and used in Sonic CD. She is in love with Sonic and follows him wherever she can, although Sonic does not return her affections. Despite this, she is a bright and cheerful character. Initially Amy was mainly a supporting character, but became a member of the regular main cast after the release of Sonic Adventure. Amy was also the character to have the most noticeable changes made to her design when the cast was updated and redesigned for the release of Sonic Adventure.
Amy does not have any particular special abilities. But she is sometimes armed with a giant hammer known as the Piko Piko Hammer.

The only animated series that Amy appears in is Sonic X, where her role is largely similar to that of the recent games.
Amy features in the following comic series:
- Sonic the Hedgehog (Archie Comics) - Amy Rose (Archie) full article
- Sonic the Comic - Amy Rose (STC) full article
In the Sonic Archie comics Amy is much like her game counterpart, and is desperate to join the Freedom Fighters so that she can impress Sonic. However, because she is young, immature and has no fighting experience, she is denied. Eventually Amy is able to prove herself after and is allowed into the group, where she undergoes training from Julie-Su.
In Sonic the Comic Amy was first introduced in issue 21, her design and manner much like that of the games. Her first story, a re-visualising of the Sonic CD story saw her being kidnapped and used as bait by Dr. Robotnik and his new Metal Sonic robot, in this universe called Metallix. After this story she became a permanent member of Sonic's Freedom Fighter group.
After this, Amy developed more away from her personality of the games and became much more independent and perhaps not quite as obsessive about Sonic or "girly" as she is in the games. She would frequently accompany the group on their missions, armed with a crossbow, and even had her own stories alongside Tekno the Canary. During the STC re-visioning of the Sonic Adventure story, her hair design was updated to that of the game.
