Christian Sonic Fanart refers to fan-created artwork of the Sonic the Hedgehog series that heavily features Christian themes. The fanart is typically noted for its bizarreness and is often considered cringeworthy.
It is unknown where Sonic the Hedgehog and Christianity were first combined. Based on several factors, however, it can be assumed that the "genre" of Christian Sonic Fanart likely originated from the United States, which notably has both a large Christian population, especially in more Southern states, as well as a large Sonic fanbase. The earliest Christian Sonic Fanart was published online on DeviantArt in October 2006 as part of the founding of the Mobian Ministry, a DeviantArt group which has over 120 members.
In 2012, Sonic Retro published an article without commentary on the phenomenon. In January of 2013, reddit user /u/sharkdance posted a gallery of Christian Sonic Fanart to the subreddit /r/cringepics, which gained over 400 upvotes before becoming archived. On July 22, 2014, CollegeHumor published a listicle of Christian Sonic Fanart; two days later, the "genre" was featured in a Cracked article about strange fan art subgenres.
