Why Sonic Forces’ Theme Is Called Fist Bump: Because Tails Dies

I didn’t even have the decency to give a spoiler warning for that title. And you know why? ‘Cause Aaron Webber, Sonic community brand manager, already popped the cherry on that one. Even if he was memeing all those months ago, I think there’s evidence as to why it might actually be the case and that he legitimately slipped up.

See, here’s the thing: the lyrics go “Before I say goodbye to you, one more last fist bump.” No matter how stupid and cheesy those actual words are, it’s the context behind them that matters. The whole song is about two best buddies, i.e. Sonic and Tails. “Before I say goodbye to you?” That’s someone dying, and it most certainly won’t be Sonic. And the two of them sharing one last fist bump before Tails does a heroic sacrifice of some sort? Sounds about right.

Only time will tell, however.

The same time that saw me abandon this blog for four months. I’m sorry, to the dedicated six of you out there that were curious. I’m not dead, I promise. More posts coming. Next article: Black Mirror discussion.
