Cosmo first appears in episode 53 of Sonic X. Her former home world was destroyed by the Metarex before she was born, and she was instead raised on a space colony. She lived peacefully there until the Metarex came and began to destroy her new home, including her family. As Cosmo was escaping, the Metarex planted a tracking device on her. Cosmo also has a device inside her brain which, when activated, allows the Metarex to hear and see everything that she does. Image File history File links Cosmo_adult_2. ...

After the attack, Cosmo escaped into a ship and arrived on Sonic’s planet. Tails, Cream, and Amy first find her and question her arrival. Cosmo tells them that she is looking for the "legendary hero, that can use the Chaos Emeralds, Sonic the Hedgehog." However, she refuses to tell them any more. Later, while in Tails' ship, she spots Sonic and hops out to greet him. Cosmo pleads for Sonic to help her.

Later in the series, Shadow boards their ship and attempts to kill Cosmo, but Cosmo’s friends manage to keep her safe. Tails especially endeavors to keep her safe to the point of almost being knocked unconscious. Before Shadow could do Cosmo any harm, a Metarex breaks in and steals the Chaos Emeralds. The Metarex call Cosmo "White Seed", and tells her that she did a good job. Cosmo then remembered that before she escaped from her space colony, the Metarex was planning to use her as a spy.

Knuckles, Tails, and Chris then analyze Cosmo and find that it is attached to her brain; if they get rid of it, Cosmo’s hearing and sight may be lost in the process. Knuckles says that it is best to do that, but Tails refuses to harm Cosmo. Later, Cosmo learns that she can hear the Metarex in her head and falls into deeper despair.

In Episode 74, Cosmo runs away, but is stopped by Tails. Their friends then show up and say they are determined to defeat Dark Oak instead of risking Cosmo’s hearing and sight. In Episode 77, Cosmo sacrifices herself by infusing herself with the Dark Oak planet to make it weaker so Tails, Super Sonic and Super Shadow could destroy it and save the universe. At first Tails refused to, but ended up shooting her with the Sonic Driver, which broke his heart. In an attempt to rescue Cosmo from death, Super Sonic and Super Shadow used Chaos Regeneration, but all they managed to produce was a small seed. In episode 78, when Sonic arrives back on board the Blue Typhoon, he hands this seed to Tails, who collapses with grief as he realizes that Sonic was unable to save Cosmo. However, a small plant is seen growing in a pot in Tails' workshop. Everyone mourns Cosmo's passing and even Eggman seems to show some sadness. It is unknown whether Cosmo will ever reappear during a possible sequel to Sonic X, since Sonic X ended its run, because the plant possibly hints that a new Cosmo (or a child of Cosmo)or maybe even the same Cosmo may grow.

Personality

Cosmo is a kind and gentle character, though she often feels guilt because she was unable to save anyone from her home planet. She also seems to suffer from a low self-esteem issue, often calling herself "unworthy" or blaming herself for the hardships that she and her friends had to endure. Cosmo also dislikes violence but acknowledges that fighting is sometimes a necessity although she herself is unable to fight. Cosmo can be somewhat clumsy, but she is also quite resourceful and has a penchant of getting into trouble.


Cosmo shares similar qualities with Maria Robotnik and Tikal the Echidna each in turn. Both Maria and Tikal sacrificed themselves to save their friends/beliefs and are pacifists, but know how to fight when necessary. Maria Robotnik ) is a fictional character in the Sonic the Hedgehog universe. ... Tikal ) is a fictional character from the Sonic the Hedgehog game series of games released by Sega. ...


Abilities and weaknesses

Cosmo does have a few abilities, being a plant herself, such as having the ability to empathize with plants, trees, or the planet and determine their state of life. Cosmo can jump high and gently float down with the aid of her skirt. She also appears to be able to unlock the power of a planet egg, as demonstrated in episode 58, where she caused the planet egg to activate and grow vines that entangled Dr. Eggmans mech, but also her friends and herself. When Cosmo is in her adult form, she is able to turn into a tree and weaken other planets.


Cosmo's weaknesses include being physically weak and acting a little clumsy. She has trouble carrying heavy objects but can use certain objects as defense. Cosmo also tends to get into trouble easily.


Relationships

Family

Cosmo's mother, Hertia (known as Earthia in the English dub version of Sonic X)

The only confirmed members of Cosmo's family is her mother Hertia (Earthia in the English dub) , who is the leader of the Green Planet council, and her older sister, Galaxina, who worries about Cosmo and her mother. There is a rumor, however, that Cosmo's father may be Lucas (Dark Oak), or one of the Metarex Generals, such as Pale Bay Leaf, but this is unconfirmed. Image File history File links Hertia,Cosmo's_Mother. ... Image File history File links Hertia,Cosmo's_Mother. ... This article is about Sonic X, an animated series. ... Dark Oak, the Metarex Leader. ... Dark Oak, the Metarex Leader. ...


Hertia: Her mother, who is the leader of the Green Planet council. She decides to leave the planet when it becomes too dangerous, but is later killed after the Metarex board her refugee ship. In the dub version of Sonic X, she is instead known as Earthia. During Episode 78, she appears to Dark Oak--now returned to his form as Lucas--and speaks with him, telling him that thanks to Cosmo they now have 'another chance' together; however this dialogue appears only in the dubbed version. This has brought about suspicion that they were previously in love. It also brings the possibility that Cosmo's race will regenerate, though this is unlikely. This article is for fictional characters from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise that appear exclusively in the animated series Sonic X. For minor characters in other continuities, see Other characters in Sonic the Hedgehog. ... This article is about Sonic X, an animated series. ...

Cosmo's older sister, Galaxina

Galaxina: Her older sister, whom is shown to worry a great deal about Cosmo and their mother, Hertia. She is portrayed as very smart, sophisticated, and down-to-earth, the opposite of the dreamy Cosmo. She appears to perhaps be the eldest--or most authoritative--of the family who are shown in the beginning of Episode 77, while Cosmo is an 'infant'. She seems to look more like Hertia than the others. In the original Japanese version, she and the others on the ship had no official names in the show. In the original Japanese version, Galaxina has no name; she was referred to as one-sama ("big sister") by other members of her clan. Image File history File links Cosmo's_sister,_Galaxina. ... Image File history File links Cosmo's_sister,_Galaxina. ...

Baby Cosmo in the arms of her older sister Galaxina, and with three other Seedrians

Seedling: Possibly Cosmo's child, a seed that was given to Tails by Sonic in episode 78, after Cosmo's death. It is yet unknown the name of this seed, or if it will survive. It could possibly be Cosmo herself, seeing as the seed it grew from is a white one, just as Cosmo had the Metarex codename, "White seed". Several fans venture to believe this to be a means of revival on her part. Alternatively, it could also simply be a part of Cosmo - all that Sonic could obtain. Plus, it could grow into just a regular plant (rather than a sentient one) as it is seen in the finale growing in a flower pot in Tails' workshop. Image File history File links Cosmo_and_sisters. ... Image File history File links Cosmo_and_sisters. ...


Speculative Family: Fan-based rumors often venture the idea that the three extra people seen at the beginning of Episode 77 with Galaxina and the infant Cosmo may be identified as also being Cosmo's sisters, fellow daughters of Hertia. Several supporting hints are noted often, though it is an unofficial venture, and the names of these three often vary among the fan community--everything from flower to planet names (one of them is named Starla in the English dub, as revealed in episode 74). They also appeared briefly in episodes 62, 74,& 77. In the English dub of episode 62, it is revealed that one of them said, "Give your mother our reguards." Although, Cosmo refers to Hertia/Earthia as "mother" while Starla, in the English dub, refers to her as "Earthia" (Starla is the purplish red one on the far left)

Romance

During her time spent on the Blue Typhoon, Cosmo became good friends with the rest of the crew, but most particularly with Tails. The two of them ended up alone on a mission together at one point, during which their respect for each other was revealed. More romantic feelings came to the surface when they worked together to set up a party for the rest of the crew, and Tails later protected Cosmo when Shadow targeted her for assassination. Cosmo's attractions to Tails were among the forces that provoked her to sacrifice herself to defeat Dark Oak, and her image appeared to him one last time after she was killed.


Other Appearances

  • Cosmo has made two cameo appearances in the Sonic X comic series. The first was in issue #5, when Chuck Thorndyke talks about possibilities of extraterrestrial life.
