Big the Cat
|Big the Cat|
|First Appearance||Sonic Adventure|
Big the Cat is a large, yet gentle, purple cat with yellow eyes. He first debuted in Sonic Adventure on the Dreamcast, and later appeared as a playable character in Sonic Shuffle and Sonic Heroes. In addition, he made various cameo appearances in other games such as Sonic Adventure 2 for the Dreamcast. In Sonic Adventure 2, he will walk by the screen at certain times by pressing the A button rapidly. He has been voiced by Syun Yashiro and Takashi Nagasako in Japanese, and Jon St. John and Pete Zarustica in English.
Big is a fisherman, and brings his fishing rod (which can be used as an umbrella) with him wherever he goes. He lives in a hut at the Mystic Ruins with his best friend, Froggy. Big is simple minded and appears to be somewhat slow witted, but is also very humble, friendly and protective of his friends. He likes to fish whenever he can with his best friend. In Sonic Adventure, you have to fish for Froggy in different levels.

Big plays a minor role within the Sonic X anime where he too, along with the rest cast, are transported to Earth by the Chaos Control. Big is actually the first character shown in the series.
Big features in the following comic series:
- Big the Cat - Sonic the Hedgehog (Archie Comics) full article
- Big the Cat - Sonic the Comic full article
In both comic series Big plays minor roles, being one of the villagers in Knothole Village within the Archie Comics adaptation. In the Sonic the Comic adaptation of the Sonic Adventure storyline, Big is seen right at the end of the story when Chaos, now in his original fish form in this continuity, lands by Big whilst he is fishing. Had the comic continued further, Nigel Kitching, one of the main writers for the comic, commented that he would have liked to include Big further and build up his character.
