Look out world, there’s a new baby on the block. Nope, it’s not The Mandalorian’s Baby Yoda, it’s Baby Sonic, from the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog. But despite what the internet will tell you, the Best Baby crown has not been taken. Baby Yoda is still king around these parts and according to the internet, he always will be.
In the latest Japanese trailer for Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog live action adaption, a surprising guest made his first appearance. That’s right — Baby Sonic has entered this year’s baby fight, as a last minute contender. You can catch a glimpse of the little tyke in the trailer below.
You can also get a better look at him via the official Japanese poster.
Of course, any time a new baby arrives, the internet goes a little bit mad — but despite the recent fervour over Baby Yoda, the intensity of the baby wars are only now heating up.
Baby Sonic is tiny, and he’s cute. He’s got a giant flower and great, big button eyes. He’s winning hearts and minds everywhere.

But of course, Baby Sonic’s arrival comes with some significant and horrifying implications.
There being a baby Sonic means at one point there was a baby Sonic with the old design, and that thought terrifies me. https://t.co/Qg0JGclqh7— James (@NitroRad) December 27, 2019
Here are just some of the wonderfully enticing ideas.

In the end, there’s only room in this bassinet for one Best Baby of the Year. And we all know who that is.

Like for baby Yoda, retweet for baby Sonic. pic.twitter.com/EH4nEJ7haW— Linkabel (@AbelMunizJr) December 27, 2019
Can Baby Sonic use the force? Can he lift a giant Mud Horn and save a life using only the power of his mind? Can he make a tiny beige cardigan fashionable? I didn’t think so.
Twitter has spoken. Long live Baby Yoda.
