Perci Rain, Perci Rain

Or alternatively, "Comedy Hao". 

Reading on a topic about Hsu Hao, the infamous Mortal Kombat loser, I saw one comment about characters like Rain and Noob, how Netherealm was able to improve them. Someone else pointed out that the two were already liked as cool recolor ninjas. This reminds me of something: Perci.

Perci was liked because of her appearance and description. She looked a lot like Julie-Su, like how Sticks looks like Marine. Hence, she was shipped with Knuckles. She didn't do much in Boom proper, but she has the second-biggest following of any Boom character. Sound familiar?

A good extra can spawn a decent following.

Why We Care

"Aren't you able to abandon him? You have done the same with Backyard Sports, Army Men, Bubsy, Petz, Bubble Bobble, Joe Danger, and other damned franchises."

We won't. We can't. We mustn't. Because Sonic has far more staying power than the above-mentioned series. Sonic is viable as a multimedia universe, not just a game franchise. We are driven by more than just the gameplay. That is why we must hang on: we must save the franchise.
