Chris Thorndyke is 12 year old suburban kid with no friends. Appearing only as a main character in the recent Sonic X anime series, Chris is one of the only 4 characters in this tournament who has never appeared in a Sonic video game..... and hopefully never will. In Sonic X, Chris is the neglected child of two rich parents who meets Sonic by chance, and befriends him and his pals. Throughout the story, Chris goes on many adventures with Sonic & pals, mostly hogging the spotlight and adding little to the storyline. Many Sonic fans agree that Chris(and his corresponding human pals) were all very unnecessary additions to what would've been a decent Sonic cartoon, and in a sense "ruined Sonic X". His infamous-ness and collective disapproval is what landed him recognition in this contest.
