I don't get the big deal. Reminds me of the "classic" Mickey Mouse design.

In fact, from time to time, (usually in AoStH, SatAM, and Underground I believe,) he blinks in the same way as Mickey Mouse would, right?

It's nothing meaningful, it's just a stylistic choice.

He has 2. They're directly adjacent to each other, but there's 2 nonetheless. I'd say Sonic wouldn't be able to wink if they were the same eye, because there'd be no anatomical point in multiple eyelids
(at least as far as I can see).

EDIT: Oh boy, I made a post making the exact same point as an earlier one I made, with less additional points. What joy.

^ best answer IMO

Nah but Sonic totally needs a make over-
He's a hedgehog evolved into a super humanoid & with all that super speed needs to wear apparel that's wind/impact resistant to protect his orifices & help him perform parkour. For his orifices he could wear earphones, goggles, a nose/mouth mask & some UFO pants that would help both his orifices & with parkour. For helping him parkour I think Sonic would need a back pad, fingerless flexfit gloves & SOAP shoes but with 2 multi-directional balls in each shoe that are retractable by pressing buttons on the shoes in case Sonic wants to run on something before sliding/grinding with them. I'd also change his body type to look more like a real hedgehog with realistic spines & 2 seperate eyes that look as close as the 1's he has now but actually disconnect down the middle & i'd make his nose and mouth be a snout with his fangs showing plus i'd give him a neck to pertain to the humanoid part him & finally give him claws & genitals to cover up with all those cool gear he'd wear.

Nah, Anthro hedgehogs have obviously evolved nearly all of the natural protections they need to move at several hundred miles per hour without harming themselves. If anything, the only adaptation Sonic is missing that would be required for him to go all natural are soles that can handle the friction, and I'm pretty sure at least one official continuity has stated that Sonic is a real tnderfoot and wears special sneakers designed to handle his speed. Granted, even if Sonic's feet are tough enough for him to run barefoot, any shoes he wore would still need to be custom made to handle the stress of his speed.

Also, while Sonic's top speed is supposedly an order of magnitude faster, I'd like to point out that cheetahs have no problem running at top speed with no protections whatsoever.

I get that, when I bought my first pair of SOAP's I found out real quick that the soles needed to be replaced with the custom gel kind. My customized SOAP shoe idea for Sonic would make him look like he's hover-running like Shadow & could do tricks to press the buttons on them to retract the multi-directional balls but the main reason for having Sonic wear them in your case is that the multi-directional balls are impact resistant & could also help him when bouncing to get higher.

I always figured it was just two eyes drawn stylistically.

Sonic always reminded me of classic cartoons like Felix the Cat and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in terms of body shape, outfit, and even naming convention.

I never liked how any of the questions were answered in that interview. Humans live on a different world? What, was Sonic X canon all along and Adventure games don't count? None of those answers make sense. They literally didn't answer the Death Egg question, just said something vaguely related. Why would I trust what they said about Sonic's eyes?

If I remember correctly, they've stated that there's two different worlds before.

Precisely how that works, I can't say. It would probably be really disorienting for Tails to have his own house, lab and workshop and then leave one of his tools behind, and have to
travel across dimensions/planets just to find his "Xtra-Tuff Power Drill 2000".

I'm willing to guess they make up the Sonic universe as they go, and they discuss things internally like which world Sonic is in, as long as they've never said otherwise in-game.
Basically, the alternate world thing is probably subject to change, but as far as the devs are concerned, it's currently canon.
