    The average chili dog costs $2.50. Times 2,989,017 is $7,472,542.50. With the recommended tip being 20%, that total becomes $8,976,051. If there are 86,400 seconds in a day, that means that if Sonic kept running without stopping for 24 hours he would need to spend $193,688,301,600 to refuel. That's more than Elon Musk's calculated net worth.

    I have an idea for a theory. In the new Addams show "Wednesday", the titular character is shown going to a school where almost all the other characters are mythical creatures. But the Addams have never been explicitly referred to in those terms, even though they do have strange abilities to endure torture and dangerous situations. Are they human? If so, how can the invulnerability be explained? And if not, what are they?

      there are calculations based on the logic that, to make something look stopped without counting that it is time stop, the speed of a snail is used in comparison (that is, what it takes for a snail to travel a certain distance so that it is visible that it is moved, that is 1/83 seconds)or 0.013 seconds

    Some of the comments mention how he's not a human and is from another dimension, so his metabolism isn't the same as a humans.... but really what I feel throws this theory out the window is just how much energy his body already contains. Just a SINGLE quill seems to carry a near infinite amount of energy. Makes me wonder if he even _needs_ to eat anything at all. 🤔

    so hear me out: in the original lore sonic was given his powers through some machine eggman invented, in the movie he is just born with it. I say he has this energy in him, constantly regenerating multiplying and ect. I think that's both stopping him from breaking his legs from running AND powering him.

    You should just use the 1/2m(vmax^2)+energy loss to friction over time x time. To find the energy in joules and then convert joules to calories. That would give you the calories needed solely for his feats without making assumptions of his biology, considering his quils contain infinite energy he might not even have a metabolism and just eats to eat

      Lack of training and his young age. I like to think there is all the light and heat due to him being young and untrained. He hasn't learned how to be fully efficient yet at generating and absorbing energy so a lot is lost to heat and light. Just like with how we harness energy, before LEDS coil light bulbs wasted most of their energy in heat, LEDS produce less wasted energy to heat since we have learned to produce light more efficiently. I imagine as Sonic gets older and learns better control he will stop with so much extra discharge.

    2:47 the issue is that a lot of hot dogs comes from beef not pigs. So, the picture of just pigs is kind of misleading.

    Also worth noting is that the distance in 4 seconds is eligeble for a speed fast enough for a launch into space. Due to the centrifugal force.

    I would like to ask a question: what about how he glows? Sonic glows whenever he access his "speed". The reason I ask is because, sonic can cause EMP waves when he goes all out and well, a single quill is enough to power Robotics flying machine. Couldn't stand to be then, that Sonic gets his calories from another source? I mean, a calorie is the heat measurement to raise the temp of water right? Isn't Heat energy? I mean, I think a better question is how much heat is Sonic generating when he's moving so fast.

    3:28 you say 9 seconds but that is inaccurate, it is 9 seconds in sonic perspectives and not in OUR perspective of what 9 actual "normal" seconds are (The vehicles are like "stopped" in his perspective, during busy green light traffic movements)... Sonic cannot be moving at simply 87.8km when the Armoured Truck he is following is actually trying to run away from the police, he would never have reach it as they most likely are trying to run away at faster speed. You forgot to multiply the speed of the truck BY THAT 87.8km, and we can easily guess they where trying to run faster then the allowed Seattle traffic speed limits, witch is above 40.2km/h (25mph) for certain. (no i did not watch the movie yet, but i do have it in my library, just lacked time to watch the first movie before the second one). Most Police chases would have ended at such speed but tend to be in the racing-speed type of speed, so its easy to guess they (the truck) are going faster then 100kmh and Sonic did catch up in 9 seconds, so he obliviously was going at 87.8km * 100+km/h (so more like 8780km/h). Even if they where respecting the traffic speed limit, it still would end up as 87.8km * 40.2km/h (so, minimal is still almost 3,529.56 km/h) and that make more sense.
    I guess your 2 calories for this "sonic walk" was most likely above 200cal due to that (or 80.4cal if respecting speed limit)
    [Know the limit: ... 25 MPH on most arterials (streets with a yellow line down the middle) in Seattle.]

    Don't forget that Sonics body is incredibly energy dense. Just a single quill was enough to power Eggman's machine to become equivalently fast. I would hazard a guess that Sonics body is so replete with energy that he doesn't actually need to eat; he just does it because it tastes good and is fun to do, or because he mistakenly thinks he HAS to eat.

      Probably still needed to eat but I think only very little his body is probably like a super energy generator that just a small amount of food is able to produce energy equal to 15 nukeclare plants and each quill is able to store that energy and more so sonic might just be able to have a nearly unmatch supply of energy from 1 chili dog

    I ran some calculations myself, and your estimate for total calories CAN NOT be correct. In order to accelerate an object weighing 65 lb to 443 km/s, decelerate, accelerate again, and finish with a final deceleration, at least 2.6 billion calories of energy would be necessary. This assumes that the system is perfectly energy efficient, which is impossible, so the actual value must be greater. In order to find this result, I calculated the hedgehog's kinetic energy while moving (KE = 1/2 * m * v^2), then multiplied it by four.

    Fun video, but I think his speed is mostly powered by the magic lightning energy that seems to be part of him, rather than his chili dog intake. Remember, the lightning from a single quill was enough to power a super-jet.

    Keep in mind in the first scene, when he ran to get the bad guys, everything was frozen showing that he was actually running at a MUCH MUCH faster speed than Matt calculated and also his calorie usage is innacurate because these formulas are according to the average human and we all know sonic is no where near close to human in biology. So this theory could be innacurate, but remember its just a theory, A FILM THEORY!

    There is one aspect you didn't taken into account...
    He doesn't come from OUR dimension.
    His metabolism isn't like ours.
    He is either a mutation that has developed the ability to survive on very little food intake or he has some sort of magical element (much like the Chaos crystals) that sustains him.

    Hey matpat, you should be considering that Sonic is so awesome that he gets huge amounts of energy of his food and not the few calories we get, he could do this simply by splitting the atoms of the chilli dogs inside his belly and directly harvesting the released energy, that way he never gets out of power, and that also explain why he has "infinite" power as state by eggman
