Description

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. 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.

Can be seen as one to the Avatar. The Avatar's fellow soldiers were killed by Infinite, and since then, they have developed a fear of him, something Infinite uses to torment them. However, some encouragement from Sonic helps the Avatar to conquer their fear of him and help Sonic take him down for good.We Can Rule Together: Eggman offers this to Infinite after a fight with him, and Infinite accepted the offer. 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.

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.

Infinite

Hate Sink: Overall, Infinite is 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. To the Avatar. The Avatar's fellow soldiers were killed by Infinite, and since then, they have developed a fear of him, something Infinite uses to torment them. However, some encouragement from Sonic helps the Avatar conquer their fear of him and help Sonic take him down for good. Wrath: Infinite ruthlessly hurts and kills others for the sake of showing his dominance over them, and as stated above, desires rampant chaos and suffering more than anything else. He's also incredibly petty on top of it, and tries to psychologically torment his enemies any chance he can. 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. 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!

Narcissist: Infinite goes around flaunting his power and declaring himself superior to anyone who crosses him, and gets violently upset anyone bruises his ego. As Episode Shadow reveals, his entire reason for adopting his new persona was due to being defeated and humiliated by Shadow, and his fragile ego couldn't handle being considered "weak" by anyone. Inside the font cover is a poster promoting the Encyclo-Speed-Ia itself. I am not exactly sure about the motive behind including a poster for a book inside the exact same book. I guess it may be to spread the word to others who never heard about it? Though I was expecting the text to feature break-through information about how the series and Sega went with the flow of the video gaming industry through time, it was more like a guide on how to play Sonic games.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. 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. The book states " You'll need to either navigate a maze and battle Fang before the time runs out or collect eighty Rings with the Tornado within a strict time limit." In the actual game, however, the player battles Fang after completing either variation of the Special Stage, not only the maze one. Madillo's sprite is incorrectly cropped, having loose pixels from another sprite on the right of said sprite. Infinite views Shadow as one, considering he's the reason Infinite sought to become who he is today. After Infinite accepts that Shadow has no reason to remember him, but also proves in his mind that he has become more powerful than Shadow by toying with him in an illusory world, Infinite moves past this as well.

The Orbinaut's description is identical to the Crabmeat's description: " It crawls over a small area, occasionally launching projectiles from its claws." Out of the four screenshots that are used to represent Emerald Hill Zone, the first is actually a screenshot of Green Hill Zone from the original Sonic the Hedgehog.Malevolent Masked Man: Wears a metallic mask shaped like a fox's head and is one of the main villains of the game. The first screenshot used for the Cavern Island's profile shows a screenshot of Volcanic Tunnel instead. His ultimate fate after the final battle was left ambiguous until the Encyclo-speed-ia came out, in which it was revealed that he and his prototype were "consumed by the original Phantom Ruby." 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.
