Sonic the Hedgehog is been a series that for many is an outlet to express creativity through fan art. Many skilled artists try their hand at 'Sonic OC' to place themselves in Sonic's world, or a character of their own making. However this is not limited to skilled artists, and a theme that is rife throughout the internet is poor examples of original characters in the Sonic style.

We're all aware of the damaging effects exposing oneself to this media can have, but with the recent announcement of custom characters becoming a part of Sonic Forces, it's more important than ever to be vigilant in the face of this growing threat.

Consider the example in the video above, where a young man is overexposed to a critical degree, causing effects that are too horrifying to repeat in written form. We recommend you take any children out of the room before attempting to witness the horror above.
