We all know this one panel. Sally soccers Sonic's cheek, calling him selfish.

Now, for everybody to read this,
I am fine with people disliking Sally for LEGIT reasons as long as they just ignore her and move on. But THIS ONE ISSUE is a very, VERY bad excuse to hate Sally Acorn.

This is issue 134. RIght now the Comic has moved on to Issue 233. Saying you hate Archie and Sally Acorn for issue 134 is the equivalent to saying Sonic the Hedgehog sucks because of Sonic06 and this is the main reason why I don't tolerate this as an excuse to hate Archie/Sally.

Now, what is the backstory Sally Haters use to use it as a proper excuse?
Sonic wants to fight Robotnik, but Sally says no and wants to keep him for herself. Sonic says no and Sally slaps him and runs off. STUPID MARY SUE!!11122 HE WANTS TO SAVE THE WORLD! HE IS NOT SELFISH

Through THAT isn't the whole story.
Sonic had almost died two times, leaving his girlfriend completely desparated and worried about him. Sonic returns and immediately asks to leave again to fight Robotnik. Sally concerns about Sonic and begs him to stay. Sonic says no and Sally slaps him, calling him selfish.

Now, people say Sally calling Sonic selfish is wrong, but actually, she is right.

Here is the correct definition of "Selfish"
self·ish (slfsh)
adj.
Concerned chiefly or only with oneself: "Selfish men were . . . trying to make capital for themselves out of the sacred cause of human rights" (Maria Weston Chapman).

It is NOT only self-love!

Sonic only cared about himself when he made the decision to fight Robotnik and left everybody's feelings about him in the dust like always because he wants to adventure.

He actually DESERVED the slap because he only cares for himself most of the time and that is why Sally Acorn dumped him right there in the first place.

I really like Sally but I think the fans were mad for a different reason,I can understand why sally slapped him,she just didn't want the one she loved hurt,but in all truth sonic was trying to do what every heros job is save the world and when dating a hero you have to understand this,he risks his life to save other peoples lives and asking him to stay with her when lives are on the line is something he may want but just can't do.

I understand why Sally slapped him. We have to see her as a person. She couldn't take the fear of seeing Sonic die again.

It was hard for everyone and Sonic actually IS selfish. Selfish isn't self-loving. It's THINKING only about yourself. People often misunderstand "selfish" and "self-centered".

As much as I like Sally, I unfortunately have to side with Sonic on that issue.

His reasons for turning her down I don't believe were really selfish in this case.

No Offense.

Anyway, I just wonder if 234 is going to top 134 in making Sally look like a bigger monster than this...

I think Sally was a bit harsh in this ONE comic.
Sonic just got home after a year,went right back to fighting Eggman because like everyone else involved in that war, wants it to be over.
Sonic lives to be free and adventure has always been his first love,so telling him to choose between a life of adventure and a life of semi-comfort is a bit of a no-brainer.Sonic loves Sally,but to stop being a hero after all this time must have been hard for him.But Sonic`s love for adventure is a very bad quality that did almost cost him Sally.Sonic does have a much harser and serious side which I assume must have been released when Sally was robotizized and it seems that his carefree attitude may just be a front or a way to keep everyone calm.
Sally was glad to have him back and paniced when he broke his arm.
Sally needs to realize that Sonic is Sonic and cant just stop being a freedom fighter because she`s worried for him because that does not garentee that Eggman would stop attacking him,plus that would also endanger her even more.Sally also called out her own kingdom and said she would rather have any one of them fight then him,and was not really trying to relate to what Sonic needs.
I personally blame the writers on this development though

Actually, I think they're both at fault here.
Sonic SHOULD have taken into consideration for how Sally felt about Sonic returning to her after being gone for so long. The trip from the regions of space to the planet Möbius felt like days or weeks to Sonic, but it was actually over a year to everyone on Möbius. Sonic should have realized and taken into consideration how Sally felt about wondering if Sonic was alive or not during all that time.
But when Sally told Sonic to just stop fighting Robotnik, when the world definitely needed him more than ever, just so she could keep Sonic to herself Sally was only thinking about herself and no one else. Sally was basically telling Sonic to NOT be the kind of hero that she and everyone else knows and loves; she was telling Sonic the Hedgehog to NOT be Sonic the Hedgehog, all because she was scared of losing him again when she should have realized that they are at war and that they need to put the sake and safety of everyone that's counting on them before themselves.
ALL of this why they were both at fault with this whole mess.

You took the words right out of my mouth; Sally still could have re-thought her actions better, whether Sonic was guilty or not. :iconclapplz:

Well, more importantly, they've both realized by now how wrong they were and are back together FINALLY... or rather, they will be completely after Sonic saves Sally from her robotic-self ^^;

THIS IS TRUE. *high five* I'm getting tired of the Sally Haters, they either hate her for this slap or because she's a "slut" for not wearing clothes like the rest do. (She's a squirrel, are people seriously going to complain about her for not wearing clothes?)
