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"
selfˇish (slfsh)
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.

Any one who seys Sally was being heartless and selfish doesnt know what its like to have someone they love go away and fight and everyday not know if there alive or not
Sonic was being selfish he wasnt thinking about hard it must have been for sally

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".
