Sonic Dying In The Hospital or Sonic Please Tell Me refers to a phrasal template meme featuring an image of Sonic in a hospital bed dying while Knuckles is at his side crying. Knuckles asks him a crucial question, sometimes related to grammar or a random fact. The meme started to be used as an image macro in early 2020, spreading to meme pages across other social media platforms.

The first instance of this template being used as a meme is unknown, but it appears the meme first became popularized as an image macro meme on Reddit in February 2020, after user u/pixelpudding uploaded the fan art with an overlay caption saying "please Sonic, what is the quadratic fromula."

The image was later turned into an image macro template for math memes in which Knuckles is asking for Sonic’s help to solve the problems. For instance, on May 8th, 2021, Reddit user u/walter938 uploaded a trigonometric statement problem alongside Sonic’s meme and the overlay text asking, "without giving me the answer…" The post received 216 upvotes and 66 comments in two years (seen below).
