Sonic the infinite

Sonic the infinite DEFAULT

(The original description from Wattpad)
This story focuses on Rosy the Rascal and her conflict with a green pineapple. I am going to try not to stray from this topic by accidentally studying other characters and relationships (though I'll have to admit that Shadow and Rouge and Shadow and Infinite are a little tempting).
To sum up Honesty is the Best Policy as a whole, it is a fanfiction turned psychological drama. It is separated into several different stories, each new story continuing from where the previous one stops. Some are called {____ Edition}, while others are called {w/____}. The editions are books focusing on a specific situation, problem, or occurring at a specific time. Books ending with "w/" and then a character's name are focusing on a specific character.
The previous books, in order, are as follows: {w/Sonic}, {w/Snow}, and {Forces Edition}, with {Café Edition} occurring all throughout these books beginning with {w/Snow}.
If any event or sequence in this story is hard to understand, it's because I wrote it a long time ago. I will probably edit it in order to reflect my current writing skill. Thank you for reading.

That day, I gave up my own unsightly face. And I let go of the old me, the one that was so weak, so that I could become stronger. And then, at last... I obtained the power. The power to make all yield to my will. I... was... REBORN!

—Infinite, Sonic Forces

Infinite (インフィニット, Infinitto), formerly known as the "ultimate mercenary" (究極傭兵, Kyūkyoku Yōhei), is an antagonist that appears in Sonic Forces. He is an anthropomorphic jackal, and was formerly the leader of the Jackal Squad mercenary group. During a raid, Infinite was hired by Dr. Eggman to protect his facility, only for him and his squad to fall at the hands of Shadow the Hedgehog. Ashamed of his loss, Infinite decided to obtain the power of the Phantom Ruby as a means of not only becoming stronger, but to also abandon his "weak", past self.

Concept and creation[]

During the original drafts, Infinite was originally called "Zero".[1] His final name ("Infinite") was intended to reference the nature of his ability.[2]

According to Shun Nakamura, Infinite was created with an impressive and strong presence in mind since he would be accompanied by old bosses in Sonic Forces. This is the reason why he was made stronger and faster than Sonic the Hedgehog. His nature likewise inspired the staff to elaborate on his origin story. Sonic Team was also peculiar about giving him a cool, but evil design, with his mask being designed especially to emphasize his evil nature.[3]


Infinite is an anthropomorphic jackal with black fur. He has white long and stiff dreadlocks, a white collar of some kind, and white stripes on his back. He also has a bushy tail with a white tip, and wears black gloves with silver streaks on the back, covering his sharp fingers. He also has pointed, metal black hi-tops, with his personal infinity symbol engraved on red soles. His right eye is colored blue, though he has a scar across it, and his left eye is yellow. He also has a medium-long white muzzle with cheek tuffs and a black nose.

After abandoning his old identity, Infinite began wearing a silver-colored mask with large ears with white and black circular patterns on the inside, with the right ear being black with white circular patterns and the left being white with black circular patterns. While his left eye is visible through a red visor, his right eye is covered by a black lightning bolt-shaped piece, similar to an eyepatch, that is connected to his mask's right ear.

Infinite possesses the finalized Phantom Ruby prototype that is fused to his chest. When Infinite channels the power of the gemstone, he can surround himself in a red aura, with red, glitch-like pixel particles scattered throughout his body.



Infinite was once the leader of the Jackal Squad, who decided to invade one of Dr. Eggman's bases one day to steal his devices for a bounty. The doctor, who recently discovered the Phantom Ruby, used the newly-found gemstone to conjure an army of Egg Pawns, giving the Jackal Squad some opposition. Infinite commanded his forces to handle the robots as he targeted Eggman straight ahead. Infinite's sword, however, struck against the Phantom Ruby, giving a vision of what Infinite desired the most: a desolate, destroyed world. Eggman, who also saw Infinite's vision, realized that he and the jackal leader together could accomplish their goals. Offering Infinite a chance at joining his side as the Jackal Squad was cornered, Infinite accepted the proposal.[4]

Later on, Infinite and his squad eventually fell victim to Shadow the Hedgehog, who infiltrated Eggman's Facility, which they were assigned to guard. After being berated by Eggman for his incompetence at protecting the facility, Infinite ambushed Shadow, only to be completely subdued by the brooding hedgehog. Calling the jackal leader worthless, Infinite broke into a tantrum, realizing just how weak and humiliating he truly was.

Infinite would then seek out the alligence of the Eggman Empire, fusing with the finalized Phantom Ruby prototype in an attempt to become stronger and seek out vengeance against Shadow. With his newfound power, Infinite abandoned the former, weak version of himself, gaining a mask to hide his scars, symbolizing his rebirth.

Shortly after obtaining his powers, Infinite was dispatched by Dr. Eggman to deal with E-123 Omega, who had proceeded to slaughter a whole lot of Eggman's henchmen on his way through Eggman's base. Confronting Omega, Infinite proceeded to effortlessly defeat the robot with his abilities.[5]

Sonic Forces[]

In Sonic Forces, Infinite became the right-hand man of Dr. Eggman.[6] When Eggman attacked a large urban center with his robots, Infinite engaged Sonic the Hedgehog when the latter made short work of Eggman's forces. Overwhelming Sonic with his power, Infinite defeated and captured Sonic.[7][8]

After's Sonic's defeat, Infinite provided Eggman with a new power that allowed the doctor to conquer 99% of the planet, resulting in the Eggman Empire controlling that much of the world.[9][10] Instated as the leader of Eggman's entire army,[11][12] Infinite worked alongside Eggman's henchmen (Shadow the Hedgehog, Metal Sonic, Zavok and Chaos) and it is his existence that binds the aforementioned individuals in Eggman's army.[13][14] However, Infinite eventually found opposition in the form of the Resistance.


Infinite is an enigmatic and mysterious, yet lethal and dark figure.[11] He is cold and stern, though deeply sadistic and cruel.[6] Prior to becoming Infinite, however, he had at least some degree of care for his men in Jackal Squad, as he angrily confronted Shadow over the destruction of the Jackal Squad before fighting him. He is also extremely sadistic, taking great pleasure in the pain and torment of others. He even willingly lets the Avatar run unharmed, just so he could relish in their terrified screams.[15] Extremely collected and confident with a cynical, nonchalant demeanor, he presents himself as perceptive and aloof, toying with and barely sparing his enemies a thought even in direct combat.[11] He also appears rather arrogant and sure about his strength, as he often exhibits a sense of superiority when talking to others and shows little respect for figures like Sonic.[6][11] He is, however, able to acknowledge attributes to his opponents he deemed commendable, as he acknowledged before attacking Omega that the latter was "spirited."[5] His violent disposition was present even before his transformation into Infinite, as evidenced by his touching the Phantom Ruby causing it to reveal a desolate, war-torn world. It also seems that he greatly dislikes stagnation, admitting as he joined Eggman that he had grown tired and bored of the world, and desired to change it, evidently for the worst, just to provide some amusement.[4]

His most notable character trait, however, was his inferiority complex, especially regarding any perceived weakness he might have. This was most especially apparent when he fought Shadow and was easily beaten by him. After Shadow bluntly told him he was worthless and told him to not show his "pathetic face" to him ever again, Infinite proceeded to rage about how he was not weak before ultimately subjecting himself to being fused with the Phantom Ruby prototype, and completely discarding any trace of his old identity, to the point where he refused to show his own face. Other indications of this trait were shown where he expressed disgust at Eggman calling a retreat, viewing it as a tacit admission to weakness. Even after his defeat, Infinite tries to insist that he can fight on, even as he is pulled from the battlefield. This inferiority complex is implied to have developed into a mad obsession with strength. When Shadow runs through a Phantom Ruby-made Green Hill, Infinite's thoughts are echoed through a false Omega, constantly repeating that he was not weak, almost like a paranoid reassurance, showing Infinite as a truly insecure individual.

Owing to his obsession with strength, Infinite also demonstrates a Darwinian view of life, which is especially evident with his fight against the Avatar at Metropolis, where he declares that the weak ultimately exist solely to be vanquished by the strong, and later his admission that he underestimated how the feeble have a desperate clinging to life when the Avatar managed to hold their own against him.

Powers and abilities[]

Described as powerful, Infinite is said to possess a strange ability.[16][11] His power surpasses even that of Sonic's, whom he was able to defeat in combat with relative ease.[11][14] He was also able to effortlessly defeat E-123 Omega in a flash.[5] Likewise, Infinite was also capable of defeating Silver the Hedgehog with ease.

Due to Infinite's fusion with the finalized version of the Phantom Ruby prototypes, he acquired the ability to generate, destroy and/or manipulate virtual realities. The virtual realities in question are said to be illusions, and these illusions are generated by distorting the spatial (depth) and visual (optical) information perceived by a living target of intention. The effects of the virtual realities created by the Phantom Ruby are said to be potent enough to cause any illusory injury due to their influence, to affect the victim's physical body. In battle, Infinite primarily uses the Phantom Ruby to generate a huge supply of crimson red cubes that he can skillfully and willingly move around. He can generate and arrange a large numbers of these cubes into a variety of different forms. He can also use them to manifest other objects, such as turrets for example.[16][11]

Infinite can also use the ruby's power to create virtual reality constructs that cause victims to falsely perceive the presence of other characters, such as Zavok and Chaos. These constructs are described by Shadow as having "mass and form, but no heart or soul". These constructs, so long as Infinite desires, can also carry the memories, powers, and personalities of the originals. He can also alter them to make them stronger than the originals such as making Metal Sonic bigger and granting him the ability to use electrified versions of his energy cubes as well as materialize objects to use as a shield. Infinite can also use the Ruby's power to alter his own appearance such as making himself bigger for his final battle with Sonic. Using the Phantom Ruby's power, Infinite is also capable of creating Null Spaces, which are seemingly inescapable voids in space-time that function similar to that of a black hole. Some of Infinite's other Phantom Ruby-based skills include the ability to fire energy blasts from his hands, the ability to teleport in a manner that makes it seems as if his body is being deconstructed into cuboid objects, and the ability to levitate through the atmosphere and through space.[6]

After gaining the Phantom Ruby's power, Infinite obtained unprecedented speed and acceleration that surpasses even that of Sonic himself, able to easily dodge one of Sonic's attacks even when he was boosting at point-blank range and move several meters almost instantaneously.[15][11] He possesses far greater strength than Sonic as well,[14] enough to knock away someone of Sonic's size with enough force to crack a concrete arch upon impact.[11] Prior to being fused with the Phantom Ruby, he was skilled at swordplay,[4] and was shown to be fairly fast and agile in his movements, although his speed was easily outclassed by Shadow's Chaos Control abilities.


Prior to receiving the Phantom Ruby's power, Infinite possessed a red sword, which he used with great proficiency, using it to slice through robots with ease.


Shadow the Hedgehog[]

Arguably the person who had the most impact on Infinite was Shadow the Hedgehog. After his squad was destroyed by the brooding hedgehog during an attack on Eggman's base, Infinite, furious, attempted to attack him, only to be effortlessly defeated. Before he left, Shadow made clear his disgust, and demanded never to see his "pathetic face" again. Infuriated that he'd been humiliated, the mercenary took Shadow's words to heart, and went on to discard all remnants of his old life, becoming the entity known as Infinite.

Much later, Infinite once again encountered Shadow, having defeated Omega, and was ecstatic, though Shadow failed to remember him. Infinite's reaction to this was to cast Shadow into a false interpretation of Green Hill, where Shadow would be falsely contacted by an Omega who at first, seemed to be perfectly normal, but as time progressed, soon devolved into incessantly repeating that he was not weak. Infinite later uses a false Shadow to help instill fear into the Resistance during Eggman's reign.

It's implied that Infinite was afraid of Shadow before he took his current identity, visibly trembling as the hedgehog criticized him.

Sonic the Hedgehog[]

His first meeting with Sonic the Hedgehog had him beating the blue hedgehog effortlessly. This ultimately had Infinite's ego receiving a massive boost. When meeting Sonic for the first time since he defeated him at Mystic Jungle, Infinite proceeded to sense a smell from Sonic and assumed the smell was fear of encountering him due to last time, though Sonic corrected him and explained the smell was actually sweat due to Sonic having ran all the way there, and also smugly explained that Infinite had not left an impression on him at all. Because of his beating Sonic twice, he proceeded to spare him, solely because he deemed him not worth killing. However, he does express shock that Sonic held his own for longer than he expected, due to his data indicating he won't be a challenge from last time before ultimately threatening to have him "hold [his] tongue" next time they fight. This would ultimately prove to be his downfall, as not only did Sonic proceed to inspire the Avatar to fight off against him, but both Sonic and the Avatar proceeded to bring him down for the count even with a fully charged Phantom Ruby.

Similar to Erazor Djinn, Infinite also derogatorily referred to Sonic as a "filthy sewer rat", with Sonic asking if he's ever seen a hedgehog before, and even offering to "show [Infinite] his spines."


Infinite had a personal connection with Avatar, as he had been responsible for slaughtering their friends during one of his raids during the six months between Sonic's defeat at his hands and the Avatar's joining of the Resistance, with Infinite ultimately sparing them simply to satiate his more sadistic nature of watching them flee in terror. They later re-encountered each other at Metropolis, with Infinite trying to intimidate Avatar, although they, due to Sonic's word of encouragement, ultimately chose to fight Infinite instead of giving in to fear. Infinite then tried to finish them off when remembering who they were, although due to Avatar's possession of a Phantom Ruby prototype, they managed to evade the attack, leaving Infinite shocked before ultimately dismissing the matter and leaving them be. Ultimately, the Avatar alongside Sonic ended up bringing him down for the count.

Dr. Eggman[]

File:Screenshot 20171110-193624.png

When Infinite and his squad raided Dr. Eggman's base for weapons to sell, the doctor's army overwhelmed them, and the Phantom Ruby allowed Eggman to get the upper hand against Infinite. Impressed by the jackal, Eggman offered him a place in the Eggman Empire. Infinite, having grown bored with his life, agreed to his proposition. Infinite was later a willing subject in the Phantom Ruby experiments, and had the final version merged with his very being.

Following Eggman's domination of the Earth, Infinite would continue to prove loyal to the doctor, serving as his right-hand and enforcer, though he did not hesitate to voice his displeasure with some of Eggman's choices, and openly acknowledged himself as the better of the two. Interestingly, Infinite is one of the only powerful entities that Eggman aligned himself with who did not end up betraying him.

Jackal Squad[]

It would seem that Infinite was close to his former squadmates in the Jackal Squad, as he was furious when Shadow destroyed them. Likewise, the rest of the squad seemed to place a lot of faith and trust in Infinite, believing that they could survive on their own, though ultimately, Infinite's desire to end his boredom proved more important to him than the interests of his teammates.

Sonic Forces - Infinite Theme (NateWantsToBattle feat. Arin Hanson)

Characters / Sonic the Hedgehog - Infinite

You may call me... Infinite... in the brief moments that remain to you.

Debut:Sonic Forces

Voiced by:Takashi Kondo (Japanese); Liam O'Brien (English); Patrick Borg (French)

A vile individual who joins Eggman's bid for world conquest in Sonic Forces. Originally a self-styled "Ultimate Mercenary" jackal hired by Eggman and leader of his own "Jackal Squad", a crushing defeat by Shadow led him to start wearing a mask and pursue power even greater than Shadow's Chaos abilities — which he believes he has now thanks to Eggman's Phantom Ruby.

    open/close all folders 


  • Achilles' Heel:
    • The Phantom Ruby's illusions are powerful, but they can be countered by someone who has a Phantom Ruby as well, and being in close proximity to a Phantom Ruby weakens his own. The Avatar manages to find a Phantom Ruby prototype left behind by Infinite, allowing them to survive Infinite's illusion during their fight with him, and allowing them to ultimately foil Eggman's plan to destroy the Resistance with a virtual sun.
    • Infinite's character bears one perhaps even more noteworthy than the rare possibility of a second Phantom Ruby nullifying his powers: namely, his hopeless addiction to sadism. Infinite isn't interested in pragmatism; his personal agenda is domination, to relish in the fear, suffering, and subjugation of others as much as possible, constantly playing it off as it "not being worth the time" to finish off the enemy. Even after Eggman calls him out on letting Sonic live when he had him cornered, the one person who could absolutely ruin everything, Infinite tries to rationalize it away. Even beyond that, Infinite failed to recognize what he'd inadvertently created when he subjected the Avatar to the same experience that led tohimbecoming so powerful.
    • The Phantom Ruby can't function without an external power supply of some sort. If all power supplies are destroyed, Infinite would no longer have access to his greatest weapon and be substantially weakened. This one isn't fully exploited, as Eggman had a backup power supply when the primary one, the Death Egg, was destroyed.
  • Adjusting Your Glasses: Performs the "by the bridge" method to his mask.
  • Always Second Best:
    • Episode Shadow reveals that he was this to Shadow. He was the captain of a mercenary squad and touted himself as the "Ultimate Mercenary" until he was dealt a crushing defeat at the hands of the Ultimate Life Form. The humiliation drove Infinite to seek power so he'll never be weak again.
    • His seeming mastery of his powers granted by the Phantom Ruby makes it appear as though he's the only one who could use them. However, the prequel comics reveal that Eggman was the Ruby's original wielder — however brief — and he could utilize it with far greater ease, and when he takes it back at the game's climax, he immediately demonstrates a greater level of power in projections than Infinite ever had.
  • Always Someone Better: He has Sonic's number in hand-to-hand combat, able to defeat him effortlessly. Of course, as the game progresses, Sonic eventually returns the favor.
  • Ambiguous Situation:
    • The game reveals that the gem embedded into his chest is the Phantom Ruby, or rather, the finalized version of a prototype Phantom Ruby created by Eggman. What happened to the original and how Infinite is connected to said Ruby remains unknown... Unless you play Episode Shadow, wherein you learn that Infinite was the leader of the Jackal Squad Eggman hired to protect his base in Mystic Jungle, where the real Phantom Ruby was being analyzed.
    • It's also left vague on whether the Phantom Ruby's abilities are just illusions, outright reality warping, or a mix of the two. While the villains are revealed to be virtual reality constructs and the obstacles that appear during his boss fights are illusions manifested by the Ruby's power, Infinite's energy attacks and the Phantom Ruby's ability to distort gravity and create Null Space implies that there's more to the Ruby's power than what has been told.
  • Animal Stereotypes: He's a black-furred jackal who started off as a thief and later grew to be a menacing villain, a common stereotype of jackals.
  • Apocalypse How: He nearly pulls off a Class 6 when he tries to erase the resistance by dropping a construct of the sun onto them.
  • Arch-Enemy:
  • Artificial Person: Infinite is shown to be this in the opening, as Eggman's latest and most powerful experiment, though he most certainly wasn't always.
  • Asshole Victim: Shadow was cruel to him and his team... but they'd already put their lot in with Eggman to help take over the world and get power at that point.
  • Attack Drones: His red energy cubes serve as these for him, as his main fighting style is to send his cubes to attack opponents, arranging them in various shapes and formations.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's The Leader of the Eggman Army, and by far and away its most powerful member.
  • Ax-Crazy: He hides it well, but it's pretty clear that Infinite is quite unhinged underneath it all, as he relishes in causing death and destruction. In the final issue of the tie-in comic, when Infinite strikes the Phantom Ruby with his sword, he's shown what he desires most: a desolate, destroyed world, implying that he was crazy even before he gained the Ruby's power.
  • Badass Armfold: His default pose.
  • Badass Baritone: Has a deep, commanding, echoing voice thanks to Liam O'Brien voicing him, and is clearly one of the powerhouses of Eggman's army.
  • Badass in Charge: Leads the Eggman Army in Sonic Forces and more than capable of kicking youall around.
  • Badass Normal: The final tie-in comic shows that before he gained the power of the Phantom Ruby, he was a highly skilled mercenary captain. He managed to fight his way through hundreds of Eggman's robots and came within a hairsbreadth of actually killing the good doctor, only failing due to the Phantom Ruby's interference.
  • Battle Aura: Gains one when using his powers, but how it looks depends on the version. In the PS4/XBOX One version, he glows with a red aura and is surrounded by a purple haze that occasionally flickers with red, glitching static. In the Switch version, he has a simple red outline. In the comics, his aura resembles crimson flames.
  • Berserk Button: He does not like being called "weak" very much.
  • Bragging Theme Tune: His theme is essentially just bragging about how dangerous and awesome he is.
  • Break the Haughty: Episode Shadow reveals that prior to the game, he was the captain of a mercenary team called Jackal Squad, and touted himself as the "Ultimate Mercenary". That all changed one fateful day when he and his squad were hired by Eggman to protect one of his laboratories in Mystic Jungle, where they encountered Shadow the Hedgehog. Shadow effortlessly destroyed his entire squad and handed Infinite a humiliating defeat, which would lead to Infinite's vow to become stronger and lead to him obtaining the power of the Phantom Ruby.
  • Bring It: Makes this gesture to Sonic at the beginning of their final battle, right before growing to giant size.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: In his second fight with Sonic, despite still being more powerful than him, Infinite decides against killing him, deeming him not worth the effort. Eggman utterly blasts him for this, and indeed, it comes back to haunt him later as Sonic eventually becomes strong enough to defeat him.
  • Boss Remix: An instrumental version of his theme song plays during the first two boss fights with him.
  • The Bully: When you get right down to it, at his core, Infinite is nothing but a superpowered bully who enjoys flaunting his power and superiority over others. He constantly insults Sonic and his allies, hovers above his opponents so he can literally look down on them, and shows no respect for anyone. His backstory in Episode Shadow reveals that the reason he became Infinite in the first place was that he was handed a humiliating defeat by Shadow and wanted power so he'll never be weak again, much like how real-life bullies are often motivated by a need to feel powerful.
  • Character Tic: His mask appears to be very loose-fitting, as he has to frequently adjust it.
  • Chekhov's Gun: During his fight with Silver, Infinite drops one of the Phantom Ruby prototypes he was supposed to destroy. The Avatar would later find that same prototype, allowing them to survive Infinite's illusion during their fight with him, and allowing them to ultimately foil Eggman's plan to destroy the Resistance with a virtual sun.
  • Classic Villain: He has a distinctly evil appearance, acts as an Evil Counterpart to the Avatar, and commits nearly all of the Seven Deadly Sins:
    • Wrath: Slaughters innocents with no remorse, just to assert dominance over them.
    • Pride: Considers himself the greatest and most powerful being alive.
    • Sloth: Relies almost entirely on the Phantom Ruby.
    • Greed: Thirsts for power.
    • Envy: Despises Shadow for beating him easily and calling him "weak".
    • Lust: Has a disturbing craving for chaos and destruction.
  • Cold Ham: Despite his calm demeanor and subdued voice, practically every line of dialog that comes out of him is an over the top Badass Boast.
  • Colony Drop: Eggman and Infinite's plan to destroy the Resistance? Use the Phantom Ruby to create a virtual reality construct of the Sun and drop it on them.
  • Colour-Coded Timestop: While not exactly a time-stop, his teleportation produces the same effect as the Phantom Ruby. This is not a coincidence.
  • Cool Sword: The final issue tie-in comic for Sonic Forces shows that Infinite's Weapon of Choicebefore gaining the power of the Phantom Ruby was a red sword curved like a scimitar.
  • Create Your Own Hero: Infinite himself would inevitability create someone who would oppose him — the future Rookie of the Resistance, who would go on to be the key player in stopping Infinite once and for all.
  • Create Your Own Villain: He was hired by Eggman to protect the facility the Phantom Ruby was being studied in — then Shadow rolled around and mercilessly crushed him. Infinite was so taken by terror and humiliation that he more or less sold his soul for the sake of power, giving himself over to Eggman to become the Ruby's testing grounds.
  • Cunning Like a Fox: His mask is modeled after a fox's head and he has a bushy tail like a fox, even though he's actually a jackal.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He's an undisputed master of this.
    • An unmasked Infinite is on the receiving end of this to Shadow in Eggman's Facility in Mystic Jungle, which would lead to his Start of Darkness and him becoming Infinite.
    • In Issue Three of the Sonic Forces prequel comic, Looming Shadow, Eggman dispatches Infinite to deal with Omega when he rampages through his Arsenal Pyramid as a test of his abilities. It's not a spoiler to say he won decisively.
    • His first meeting with Sonic has him and the other villains dealing out a brutal one to Sonic, with Infinite in particular not even using his hands. The Blue Blur is unable to fight back at all and is soundly defeated.
    • A flashback shows him dealing out one to the Avatar and his team, frightening the Avatar so much that they ran away in fear.
    • In Mystic Jungle, Silver tries to hold his own against Infinite. Key word is tries. It ended as well as you'd expect, and Silver would've been killed had Sonic not stepped in.
  • Cutscene Power to the Max: All those energy attacks Infinite uses? You won't see them in his boss fights. Possibly justified by his need to prove himself stronger, and thus holding back.
  • Cyborg: The heroes believe he was built by Eggman, but in actuality he seems to be this. If nothing else, he has Eggman's perfected artificial Phantom Ruby embedded in his chest and some sort of upgrades that increased his physical abilities.
  • Dark Is Evil: He's one of the villains and his predominant colors are black and white, with hints of red here and there. When his aura is active, his entire body, sans the gem on his chest, turns black.
  • Darth Vader Clone: He's got a scary mask with a voice to match, black coloration, powers that prominently include the color red, once wielded a red sword in the prequel comic, and is Eggman's most prominent second-in-command in Forces.
  • Dash Attack: One of his attacks during the Avatar's boss fight with him has him dashing at the player like a rocket, similarly to Sonic's Homing Attack.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has a few moments of this, surprisingly.

    Infinite: More ants to crush. I wonder if this world can give me a real challenge.
    (the Avatar slowly approaches Infinite)
    Infinite: And as if to answer, the world sends me a trembling child.

  • Deal with the Devil: Issue Four: Rise of Infinite reveals exactly who Infinite once was: he was the leader of a band of thieves before Eggman offered him and his band the chance to work for him, having been given a glimpse of Infinite's own secret desires and tempted him with the chance to see them realized. And true to the trope, Infinite finds out too late he was on the losing end when Eggman decides he's screwed up one time too many and shows Infinite he was just a disposable pawn the entire time.
  • Deconstructed Character Archetype: Of the Sadist and Darker and Edgier archetypes. Infinite is extremely dangerous, but his constant need to relish in the pain and suffering of others screws him and Eggman over on several occasions, such as letting Sonic live when he could have easily finished him off, or killing the Avatar's squadmates, an act that would inspire the Avatar to become stronger and ultimately be the one to foil Eggman's plan to incinerate the Resistance with a virtual sun. His motives also turn out to be due to him being little more than The Bully, reveling in pain to support his own wrecked confidence after Shadow handily beat him.
  • The Dragon: Is Eggman's right-hand man in Forces. The fourth comic that was released alongside the game reveals that Infinite's squad was raiding Eggman's base to make quick cash. Eggman offers Infinite the chance to help take over the world.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: Subverted. Eggman probably couldn't have defeated Sonic and taken over most of the world without him. Though Infinite would be absolutely nothing more than a sellsword without Eggman giving him the power of the Phantom Ruby, so it really all evens out. Ultimately, in spite of Infinite's impudence towards Eggman heavily implying a betrayal, it is the doctor that ultimately dismisses him and takes the Phantom Ruby for himself after he fails too many times.
  • The Dreaded:
  • Driven by Envy: Everything he is today is a desperate attempt to one-up Shadow.
  • Driven to Madness: Overlapping a bit with Go Mad from the Revelation, when Infinite tries to avenge his squad's destruction at Shadow's hands, Shadow delivers an absolutely brutalNo-Holds-Barred Beatdown, mocking him as he lies broken and trembling at Shadow's feet. The sheer terror this instilled in the mercenary positively broke him, and he became obsessed with obtaining power so that he would never be driven to that point again. Though it should be noted the vision he was given by the Phantom Ruby (a wrecked, desolate world) and that he completely willingly signed up with Eggman to take over the world implies he was somewhat insane to begin with and Shadow just made him more overtly so.
  • Drunk on the Dark Side: It's pretty clear he's drunk with power and loves lording it over everyone else and abusing it to no end. Though slightly unusually for this trope, he's more of a Cold Ham. Unfortunately for him, he's so caught up in his own power and believed superiority that he makes serious mistakes that screw him and Eggman over on multiple occasions.
  • Evil Counterpart: Infinite is a dark foil to the Avatar, making the conflict of Forces less of a battle between Sonic and Eggman and more of a match between their allies.
    • Both of them had their entire squads destroyed by a powerful enemy and were belittled and mocked, leading them to vow to become stronger. However, the Avatar wants to be stronger to protect the world and his/her friends, while Infinite seeks power for his own sake.
    • In a meta example, they are both nameless characters working for the main hero and villain, and thanks to them, most of the plot moves forward. The rookie is a custom character who wants to help save the world, while the so-called Ultimate Mercenary "gave up on his face" to help Eggman conquer the world, and took on the name of Infinite for his new identity. This likewise help differentiate Sonic and Eggman in how they treat their allies: the rookie grows and becomes a hero, while Infinite is betrayed (supposedly) by Eggman due to failling him too much.
  • Evil Gloating: Constantly. Infinite just loves to talk on and on about how invincible he is to all his opponents. And, yes, while he can back it up, this trait likewise showcases how much his power blinds him to the potential danger that leaving his opponents alive poses in the moments they do overcome his power. By the time Sonic faces him for the third and final time, he indirectly tells him You Talk Too Much! in their banter.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Asserts that he sees himself as this compared to Eggman. Eggman later reveals he had no intention of Infinite being his end goal and already had a replacement prepared from square one in the form of his final mecha. When Infinite fails one time too many, Eggman disposes of him and takes his place without a second thought.
  • Evil Is Petty: His motivation for wanting to destroy the world and seek power? Because Shadow killed his squad, defeated him and called him weak. There's also a part of For the Evulz in that as well due to his sadism.
  • Evil Laugh: Will do this occasionally, such as when you die during the boss fights with him.
  • Evil Tastes Good: Tying in with his sadism. During his first meeting with the Avatar, he reflects that he can "taste" his fear, anxiety, and doubt, and finds it "delicious."
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Has a deep, scary voice that contains a noticeable echo effect, though that's likely due to the Phantom Ruby, as his voice before he had his mask was less intimidating, but still pretty deep.
  • Evil Wears Black: Wears black gloves and boots and is one of the villains.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: The mask and Phantom Ruby give him a golden pupil with red sclera. When not wearing the mask, he has a blue eye and a yellow eye.
  • Extremity Extremist: In his first battle with Sonic, he manages to defeat him without even using his hands (save for using his energy blasts), literally kicking him around like a big blue ball.


  • Facial Horror: He has a patch of fur over his right eye that makes it look like he has a scar.
  • Failed a Spot Check: He dropped one of the Ruby prototypes and didn't notice it and the Avatar dropping that same Ruby later and Infinite not even seeing it right in the Avatar's hand.
  • Fatal Flaw:
  • A Father to His Men: Implied, and up to interpretation. Quite possibly (but we aren't sure) his only redeemable aspect was that he was did care about his Jackal Squad, being furious at Shadow after he took them all down. Though it's worth noting that this is before he became Infinite.
  • Flash Step: He's quick enough to perform these.
  • Flight: He's capable of flying. Mostly because of the Phantom Ruby.
  • Flunky Boss: After damaging him enough during the Avatar's boss fight with him, Infinite will summon Eggman's robots to assist him.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Infinite wasn't born with his powers, back then he was just a jackal. Episode Shadow reveals that he was once a mercenary who joined Eggman after taking his offer to help take over the world and was assigned to protect his lab in Mystic Jungle, where he encountered Shadow. After a humiliating defeat at Shadow's hands, he vowed to become stronger, leading him to become Infinite.
  • Hate Sink: Infinite has no positive traits to his character. A Psychopathic Manchild with a constant Sadist streak, he may appear to be a badass, but by the end, it's clear that he's nothing but a bully.
  • Hand Blast: He is able to fire laser beams and Energy Balls from his hands.
  • The Heavy: He takes leadership of Eggman's army in Sonic Forces.
  • Hero Killer: Downplayed in that the only people he actually kills are the Avatar's teammates, but he effortlessly defeats other powerful characters such as Sonic, Silver, and Omega.
  • Hired Guns: He was a mercenary before Shadowinspiredhim to become more powerful.
  • Hope Crusher: Infinite thrives on driving his opponents to despair with his immense power. As he tells Silver:

    Infinite: This wasn't part of my agenda, but I'm always happy to crush a hero. It keeps the rabble in line. Shows them that there is no hope.

  • Humanoid Abomination: He appears to be the same kind of Funny Animal species as the main cast, but his design incorporates traits from different animal species, he possesses powers beyond anything seen so far, and Tails is unable to make sense of the readings he gives out on the Miles Electric. He's really a Funny Animal (a jackal, specifically) like everyone else, but powered up by the Phantom Ruby.
  • I Can Still Fight!: His final words before he disappears.
  • I Have the High Ground: Infinite is fond of hovering high above the heroes as a display of his power and superiority.
  • Image Song: Aptly titled "Infinite".
  • Imagination-Based Superpower: The Phantom Ruby allows him to conjure up anything he feels like to attack Sonic and the others with, ranging from lasers to cannons to an outright Colony Drop using a localized burning star that fills the sky, the requirement being that they have to come in contact with the Phantom Ruby's red cubes or be in close enough physical proximity to Infinite. They're actually just illusions, but they will still be injured or killed as if the illusions were real.
  • Immune to Flinching: Played With during his boss fights. If struck by Sonic's Homing Attack or the Avatar's Wire Attack, he'll recoil from the impact. But if struck by the Avatar's Wispon attacks, he won't react outside of grunts of pain.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Heavily implied to have one. Episode Shadow reveals that prior to the game, he was the captain of a mercenary team and touted himself as the "Ultimate Mercenary". That all changed one fateful day when he and his squad were hired by Eggman to protect one of his laboratories in Mystic Jungle, where they encountered Shadow the Hedgehog. Shadow effortlessly destroyed his entire squad and handed Infinite a humiliating defeat, which would lead to Infinite's vow to become stronger and led to him obtaining the power of the Phantom Ruby. This is why he constantly boasts about his power: to make himself feel strong. This is also why he objects to Eggman's strategy to retreat after the Death Egg is destroyed. To him, retreat is a sign of weakness.
  • Infinite: It's his name. Duh. Fittingly enough, Hoobastank sings the main theme of Sonic Forces, and their name is often stylized as h∞bastank, also containing an Infinite symbol. He also has the infinity symbol decorated on the soles of his boots.
  • Informed Species: He's a jackal, despite looking very little like one.
  • Interface Screw: Throughout the Capital City stage, Infinite will occasionally pop in and use the Phantom Ruby to screw with the gravity.
  • I Work Alone: Espouses this sentiment during the final battle with him. Having his entire squadron wiped out by Shadow likely inspired a desire to never again rely on others.

    Infinite: Friends are nothing but a fleeting illusion. You can count on nobody but yourself.

  • Knight of Cerebus:
    • While Sonic Forces is one of the darker Sonic games to date, it still has some lighthearted scenes at times. Any scene involving Infinite, however, is utterly devoid of humor or levity. Notably, he is one of the few Sonic villains to be explicitly seen killing people onscreen.
    • This is best shown in Stage 16, Capital City. Knuckles, learning that Eggman's army is undermanned in his home base in Metropolis, decides to order a full-scale assault on the city. Things quickly go to hell when Infinite arrives and, at the doctor's command, activates the Phantom Ruby's power to create giant, grotesque illusions of himself, throwing the Resistance into chaos. By the time the stage ends, 80% of the Resistance is utterly annihilated.
  • Lack of Empathy: Infinite only cares for causing as much destruction and suffering as he can. He considers friendship to be a waste.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: He remarks to Eggman that Sonic has beaten him "for decades."
  • Literal-Minded: After Shadow wrecked his shit two months before the start of the game and told him to never "show your pathetic face around me again", Infinite took that to mean he should start wearing a mask.
  • Living Shadow: He resembles one quite well, especially when his Battle Aura is activated, and bears some similarities to Blaze's concept art.
  • Loves the Sound of Screaming: After decimating the Avatar's squad, he deliberately allowed them to run away and live for this reason.

    Infinite: Give in to your fear. Flee, screaming, and I'll let you live.

  • Madness Mantra: I AM NOT WEAK!
  • Malevolent Masked Man: Wears a metallic mask shaped like a fox's head and is one of the main villains of the game.
  • Mask of Power: Whenever he gets ready to attack, the right eye on his mask glows red.
  • Master of Illusion: The Phantom Ruby's true power. It doesn't actually warp reality, but it mind-rapes anyone within range with illusions and hallucinations that seem so real that whatever happens in said hallucinations happens for real. In his boss fights, this is done through his energy cubes. Contact with them sends the player into a glitching illusion where they are attacked by objects manifested by the Ruby's power.
  • Mineral MacGuffin: He has some relation to the mysterious purple gemstone that is referred to as the "Phantom Ruby" by an in-game guide that everyone was after in Sonic Mania, implied by the sound it makes. The game reveals that the Ruby was given to him by Eggman.
  • Mismatched Eyes: His right iris is blue and his left iris is gold. However, only the latter can be seen with his mask on.
  • Mysterious Stranger: Infinite is presented as this, during the main story anyway. Sonic never discovers Infinite's backstory during the game. Only Shadow knows what he was before becoming what he is now.

    Sonic: I don't know anything about you. Not even your name.

  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Tormenting the Avatar, dropping the prototype Phantom Ruby and leaving Sonic alive screws him and Eggman over in the long run.
  • No Name Given: Even before taking the moniker "Infinite", we only know his nickname "The Ultimate Mercenary". His actual name is never revealed. Word of God would later clear this up and reveal his name actuallyisInfinite.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Used intentionally to give Infinite an otherworldly, alien feel to him. While designed in the same Cartoon Creature style as other characters, his design incorporates both foxlike traits as well as the hairstyle used by both hedgehogs and echindas. He also has a red outline around him and is constantly emanating a purple aura that occasionally flickers with red static, as if he's out of sync with the Sonic universe.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: When confronting the Avatar in Metropolis, he teleports right next to the Avatar, his mask mere inches away from his face, taunting him on whether he'll fight or run away again.
  • Not So Different: Presumably the reason he loves tormenting the Avatar: He lost his squad and was called weak by a much more powerful opponent. It reminded Infinite of himself that day when he takes out the Avatar's squad and calls them "weak". Except now Infinite's the big dog who belittles his opponents, much like Shadow.
  • Not Worth Killing: His initial reaction to Sonic after their second fight, similar to King Arthur.

    Infinite: As I predicted. You're not even worth the effort to finish off.

  • Obviously Evil: Let's see: Has black fur and clothing? Check. Wears a metallic mask shaped like a fox's head that hides his face save for an eye that has a gold iris and red sclera? Check. Glows with a red outline and emanates a purple haze with red glitching static? Check. Is the right-hand man to the main antagonist of the series? Check. Has a demonic, echoing voice? Check. Openly relishes death and destruction? Check. Yep, definitely a bad guy.
  • Ominous Visual Glitch: His aura occasionally has a glitch-like effect in some spots. The official Sonic Youtube channel's upload of his theme also has the image glitching out. His virtual reality constructs have the same glitching effect. Just before the final level of the game, Eggman is able to make him vanish like his constructs by recalling the Phantom Ruby, implying that part or all of his physical form had become a phantom construct.
  • Omnicidal Maniac:
    • Infinite and Eggman's plan in Sonic Forces is to destroy the world and rebuild it from the ashes in their image.

      Infinite: We move forward with the plan?
      Eggman: Of course! When it's complete, the Resistance will be erased. The world will be nothing but ashes, from which a glorious Eggman Empire will rise!
      Infinite: And the Resistance will yield to the Phantom Ruby's power. All will submit.

    • The vision he got from the Phantom Ruby in the prequel comic implies he may have had ambitions of being one of these before he became what he is now.


  • Parody Sue: Has many traits of one of the Villain Sue variety. He's portrayed as faster than Sonic, able to curbstomp some of the strongest heroes in the series, forms a Legion of Doom of some of its strongest villains subservient to him, and spends every other sentence bragging about how powerful he is... because his one true, definitive power is the ability to make Your Mind Makes It Real illusions that make himself appear all-powerful. In actuality, he's nothing more than a sadisticbully with more power than he has any right to, and once ways around his power are found, he's not nearly as invincible and perfect as he thinks he is and his sadism screws his side over royally. This, in turn, help establish Infinite as an Evil Counterpart of the Avatar, a custom character for the player to create at their will.
  • Pitiful Worms: Constantly insults and belittles Sonic and the Resistance, referring to them with such terms as "rabble" and "ants" and "pests". In the Japanese version, he's quite fond of calling them "trash".
  • Power Crystal: The source of Infinite's power is the gem on his chest, a finalized version of the Phantom Ruby prototypes created by Eggman.
  • Power Incontinence: Implied. After being defeated by Sonic and the Avatar, Infinite's body begins to glitch and warp like his virtual reality constructs, implying that they did so much damage to Infinite that his body couldn't contain or control the Phantom Ruby anymore.
  • Power of the Void: He can attack with Hard Light cubes of Pure Energy. A more straightforward example is the Phantom Ruby's ability to create Null Space, a seemingly inescapable void in space-time where nothing exists. He uses this in an attempt to kill Sonic, but Sonic manages to escape with help from the Avatar.
  • Powers Do the Fighting: Gameplay-wise, anyway. In cutscenes, he's a dynamic, hands-on fighter who pelts opponents with energy attacks. In his boss fights, he mainly floats around and attacks with his cubes, arranging them in various shapes. Of course, given the nature of his powers, it's not entirely clear how much of what Infinite does is actually him and how much is an illusion created by the Phantom Ruby.
  • Psycho for Hire: He's a Sadist who really enjoys his work as Eggman's Dragon. He also really enjoyed being a mercenary and willingly joined Eggman. Deconstructed to a degree, as his sadism is a Fatal Flaw that ultimately bites him and Eggman in the end and causes him to make mistakes that even Eggman realizes were blunders.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Pretty much the definition of the trope. His whole motivation basically boils down to Infinite throwing a massive tantrum over being humiliated by Shadow.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: He was originally just another hired goon in Eggman's employ. Then Shadow wrecked his shit, driving him over the edge and turning him into what he is today.
  • Readings Are Off the Scale: While no numbers are given, Tails states that the readings he's getting off of Infinite don't make sense. Given the true nature of his powers, this was likely because what it was picking up and what Tails and Sonic saw happening didn't match up.
  • Reality Warper: Of a sort. Infinite can't control conventional reality per sé, but he possesses absolute control of reality for anything caught in the Phantom Ruby's field of effect, casting a world of illusionthat becomes tangible reality for all afflicted. This can have varied results ranging anywhere from confusing the senses, losing sense of time, altering the terrain, or dropping a star from the sky.
  • Recurring Boss: You fight Infinite three times throughout the game. The first fight is with Sonic, the second fight is with the Avatar, and the final battle is with Sonic and the Avatar together.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: He's colored black and red, and radiating reddish energy, and he is certainly not to be trifled with.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Subverted. He appears to have red sclera, but Episode Shadow reveals that it's just the red-tinted glass of the mask. His sclera is actually white.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Eggman's red. Best shown in their reaction to Sonic and the Avatar escaping the Phantom Ruby's Null Space. While Eggman is naturally having a Freak Out, Infinite merely responds with an unamused scoff. Ironically, Eggman is more of a Crazy-PreparedNo-Nonsense Nemesis (Blue), while Infinite is a Stupid EvilSadist (Red).
  • Restraining Bolt: Exactly how it works isn't made clear, but when Infinite fails one time too many, Eggman proves capable of effortlessly recalling him and reclaiming the Phantom Ruby and Infinite is powerless to do anything about it.
  • Sadist: Hoo boy. Infinite absolutely relishes in causing terror and pain in others and he is not afraid to let it be known. A throwaway line in his theme song outright says that Infinite is at his best when people are at their lowest. Deconstructed, as his rampant sadism costs him and Eggman in the end.

    Infinite: (To the Avatar) Fine, I will teach you fear, then pain, and then... Well, at least the fear and pain will end.
    Infinite: (To the Avatar) I can taste your terror, child. All that anxiety and doubt... it's delicious. (Fires an energy blast in front of the Avatar, intentionally missing just to startle them) Give in to your fear. Flee, screaming, and I'll let you live. (Evil Laugh)

  • Sanity Has Advantages: While Infinite is extremely dangerous, he's also clearly an insane sadist. This screws over him and Eggman on several occasions, as he prioritizes his sadism over pragmatism.
  • Sanity Slippage: In issue four of the prequel comic, Infinite was a ruthless mercenary, but a relatively stable guy (though his Phantom Ruby-induced vision of a desolate world implied there was some element of insanity). However, the death of his squad and his own humiliating defeat at Shadow's hand brought all of that madness to the surface.
  • Skyward Scream: In his breakdown.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Even before taking up the mask and becoming reborn, he considered himself to be the "ultimate mercenary" before Shadow took him down in one battle. Even after his upgrade, Infinite isn't as big of a fish as he thinks he is, as he was little more than a pawn for Eggman that the good doctor disposes of the moment he's screwed up one time too many.
  • Smug Super: And how! Infinite has a bigger ego than Sonic and Shadow combined and has all the power to justify it now. He was a relatively weak Miles Gloriosus originally.
  • The Social Darwinist: Espouses this sentiment during his fight with the Avatar. As revealed in Episode Shadow, this sentiment is likely the result of his effortless defeat at Shadow's hands. He never again wanted to be as weak as he was that day, and that conviction and self-loathing seems to have inspired a hatred for those who are weak.

    Infinite: (To the Avatar) You must be a straggler who got left behind. The strong will always vanquish the weak. You have only your own frailty to blame.

  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: Rarely raises his voice above a cold, Creepy Monotone, even when committing acts of mass slaughter.
  • Sore Loser: Infinite is motivated by his maniacal desire for a desolated world where he remains at the top, but his firsts actions once reborn is to trap Shadow in a world of illusions purely because Shadow defeated him and destroyed his squad.

    Infinite, pretending to be Omega: "Affirmative! I have never known d-d-d-defeat! I am not defeated. I am not weak, I am not weak, I AM NOT WEAK, I AM NOT WEAK... I AM NOT WEAK...!!!"

  • Space Master: While the Phantom Ruby's powers are mostly centered around illusions and virtual reality, it does give Infinite some degree of spatial manipulation, mostly centered on controlling gravity. In Central City, Infinite uses the Phantom Ruby to screw with the gravity and he's also capable of creating Null Space, a seemingly inescapable void in space-time where nothing exists.
  • The Starscream: Subverted. While Infinite does disagree with Eggman at times, he remains loyal (or at least subservient) to him to the end. However, given that Eggman had full control of the Phantom Ruby and could recall it at any time, it's likely that Infinite wouldn't have had a say in the matter.
  • Start of Darkness:
    • Episode Shadow reveals that he was once an ordinary jackal and a mercenary hired by Eggman to protect his lab in Mystic Jungle, where he encountered Shadow. After a humiliating defeat at the dark hedgehog's hands, he vowed to become stronger, leading him to become Infinite.
    • The fourth and final tie-in comic shows it started a little sooner when despite failing to steal anything from Eggman, Eggman offers Infinite and the Jackal Squad the chance to become stronger and take over the world. Infinite is more than happy to oblige.
  • The Stoic: To the point of Dissonant Serenity. Infinite is never seen to be anything other than unnervingly calm, barely raising his voice outside of the occasional Evil Laugh and two This Cannot Be! moments. It helps that the mask hides his facial expressions. Episode Shadow shows that he was more emotive prior to the game.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Infinite is able to create "virtual reality constructs" that have the personalities and powers of the characters they are based on, so it's possible for him to create an army of giant Shadows, Chaoses and distorted versions of Perfect Chaos, Zavoks, and Metal Sonics.
  • Stupid Evil: His primary flaw is that he prioritizes indulging his own sadism over the mission, with disastrous results for both himself and Dr. Eggman.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Well, only one eye, but his eye has a gold iris with red sclera.
  • Superpower Lottery: The Phantom Ruby's illusion powers are incredibly versatile and dangerous. With the Phantom Ruby Prototype, Infinite can create intricate illusions that are so realistic that anything that happens to the victim in the illusion affects them for real. Infinite can also use this power to create virtual reality constructs of any character, complete with the memories, powers, and personalities of the original, and he can alter them to make them stronger and more dangerous, such making Metal Sonic bigger and granting him electrified versions of his energy cubes. Infinite can also use the Phantom Ruby to create Null Space, a seemingly inescapable void in space-time where nothing exists, much like a real-life black hole. Apart from that, Infinite has flight, super speed, super strength, energy blasts, and incredible durability.
  • Super Soldier: Episode Shadow reveals that he's basically one for Eggman. Infinite was already a highly skilled mercenary, but the "super" part didn't come in until he gained the power of the Phantom Ruby.
  • Super Speed: He's quick enough to Flash Step. It’s implied that it's not just actual speed, as he can seemingly teleport. Infinite's real power and the strange readings imply he can't even do that and is more using the Phantom Ruby to appear capable of it. In practice, Sonic is capable of keeping pace with him once the Phantom Ruby's power isn't at play.

    Tails: Whoa. This guy is faster than Sonic!

  • This Cannot Be!: His normally unshakable demeanor has faltered on two occasions, the first being when the Avatar manages to survive Infinite's illusion during his fight with them, and the second being when he's defeated for the final time.
  • Too Important to Walk: Highlighting his Smug Super nature, Infinite is never seen walking and prefers to just fly around as a demonstration of his power.
  • Uncertain Doom: While it is implied that his body started fading away after it was too damaged to handle the Phantom Ruby's power anymore, and made clear (in the Japanese version especially) that Eggman himself recalled him once he lost too many times, it's not made explicit as to whether he actually died following his last fight with Sonic and the Avatar, only that Eggman likely placed his Phantom Ruby into his Death Egg Robot.
  • Underestimating Badassery:
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Implied. While Infinite has some skill in hand-to-hand combat thanks to his mercenary background and can steamroll through a good chunk of the cast, he is entirely reliant on the Phantom Ruby in combat. His boss fights mainly consist of him letting his energy cubes do all the work, with his only physical attack being an easily avoidable Dash Attack. In cutscenes, his fighting style basically boils down to "throw energy blasts at opponents until they die". He's shown to have trouble when its powers are weakened or neutralized. In addition, Eggman shows himself to be far more proficient in the Phantom Ruby's use.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Infinite thinks he's a lot higher on the totem pole than he actually is and the more important one in him and Eggman's relationship. In reality, Infinite is little more than a disposable pawn that Eggman already has a replacement ready for and can get rid of with casual ease when he feels like it. Infinite doesn't realize Eggman has played him like a fiddle the entire time until Eggman decides You Have Failed Me after one screw up too many.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Infinite skirts the line about as razor-thin as you can get. His constant death threats and assurances that he will make things slow and painful for any opposition still avoid bumping the rating above "E-10+" (so no worse than the highest-rated games in the franchise like Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), or Sonic Lost World) and don't necessarily remove the usual Sonic feel from the scenes he's not in, but he definitely changes the tone of the game in comparison to the rest of the franchise.
  • Villain Ball: After defeating Sonic in the Mystic Jungle, he lets him live, deeming him Not Worth Killing. Eggman calls him out on doing so, knowing that Sonic will continue to be a threat as long as he's still alive, and is ultimately proven right.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He has a huge one after Shadow humiliated him, going into a insane freak-out which pushes him into becoming Eggman's weapon. He also has another (albeit brief) one when he starts to disappear after being defeated for the last time.

    Infinite:[notices his hand shaking] I... I'm shaking... Me!? Me... Afraid...!? Urgh. Pathetic!? Me... he's calling ME weak!? No! I am not weak! I'm... I'm not. I'm not weak! I AM NOT WEEEEAAAAAAK! URRRAAAAAAAAAAAGHH!

  • Villain Song: Has one that can be heard here, which goes out of its way to describe just how dangerous and powerful he is and how he'll destroy anything in his way.
  • Visual Pun: Infinite's habit of hovering above the heroes means that he's literally "looking down on them".
  • Voiceofthe Legion: His voice sounds truly demonic.
  • Was Once a Man: He used to be a regular guy like Sonic and his friends before aligning himself with Eggman. Episode Shadow reveals that he was once an ordinary jackal and a mercenary hired by Eggman to protect his lab in Mystic Jungle, where he encountered Shadow. After a humiliating defeat at the dark hedgehog's hands, he vowed to become stronger, leading him to become Infinite.
  • We Can Rule Together: Eggman offers this to Infinite after a fight with him, and Infinite accepted the offer.
  • We Have Become Complacent: The only reason he was able to beat Sonic the first time was because he had four of his replicas backing him up. That victory only made Infinite too overconfident in his abilities, which leads to his sadism making critical mistakes for Eggman.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After his final defeat in Sonic Forces, he fades away into a light and flies into a tower, after which Tails tracks his Phantom Ruby leading to Eggman's final mecha with Infinite nowhere to be seen. Exactly what Eggman did is unclear, but is implied he was killed off-screen by the destruction of the reactor.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: He has ghostly white hair and he's one of the bad guys.
  • Who's Laughing Now?: His main ambition for utilizing the Phantom Ruby. Rather expectedly, Shadow, the one who started his embitterment, is the first person he personally toys with before starting about capturing Sonic.
