Blaze the Cat is a princess and the defender of the Sol Emeralds. She is portrayed as withdrawn and disciplined when interacting with strangers, though more intimate towards friends. She has pyrokinetic abilities that she is able to utilize in physical attacks during close combat and she can send out long range blasts of fire. She can also propel herself by forming a fiery tornado around her body. She can utilize the Sol Emeralds to transform into Burning Blaze. Blaze's lavender fur becomes peach, her gloves and shoes become engulfed in purple flames, and she becomes surrounded by an aura of fire. She is voiced by Nao Takamori in Japanese media and Bella Hudson in English media.
Blaze first debuts in Sonic Rush as a one of the 2 main playable characters, the other of course being Sonic. She arrives in Sonic's dimension from another dimension along with the Sol Emeralds. While searching for the Emeralds, she befriends Sonic, Tails, and Cream the Rabbit, and helps them stop Dr. Eggman and Eggman Nega before returning to her dimension. It is also revealed in Sonic Rush that she is afraid of heights, to the point where she needs the young Cream The Rabbit to help her, which is inexplicable considering the feats and jumps Blaze can (and must) perform in Sonic Rush, a game which even includes a hang-gliding sequence.
Sonic The Hedgehog (2006)
Blaze returns in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) as Silver the Hedgehog's friend during the future of Sonic's dimension. The two fight against Iblis and attempt to fix their ruined world by travelling back in time. Blaze eventually seals Iblis within her body, is consumed by a gold aura and disappears in the air.
She is playable in only a few of Silver's stages. Her abilities/playstyle is similar to Sonic and Shadow, with some differences.
Sonic Rush Adventure
In Sonic Rush's sequel, Blaze once again acts as a main character in Sonic Rush Adventure, where Sonic and Tails are transported to her dimension and help her retrieve the "Jeweled Scepter".
Blaze is an unlockable playable character in the Sonic and the Secret Rings party mode and Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, and a playable character in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (both the DS and Wii games) & Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games (both the DS and Wii games).
She also appears in Sonic Generations PS3/360, but not as a playable character.
