Melissa the Hedgehog (メリッサヘッジホッグ Merissa za hejjihoggu) is a main character created by Aly. She was created back in 2008 (or 2009), originally with no name, however she was nicknamed "Dark Rose" and being an Amy Rose recolor. However, her creator gave her the name "Melissa" due to liking the name back then, and finally in 2014 Melissa got a new design. Melissa used to have crush on Shadow, but she got over it. Melissa has a best friend (former sidekick), and he is Jerry the Fox.

Melissa the Hedgehog (メリッサヘッジホッグ Merissa za hejjihoggu), formerly known as Missy the Rascal (ミッシー·ラスカル Misshīrasukaru) or by her prototype name Dark Rose (ダークローズ Dākurōzu), is a brown, anthropomorphic hedgehog that was the first fan character created by User:Ami670. Melissa is 16 years old, 101.6 cm (3' 4") tall, and weighs 43.5 kg (96 lbs). She was described as being 12 years old, but later on, she has grown older (by 4 years). And, she also had a buddy when she was a young girl.
Melissa can sometimes change how she looks. She mostly sticks to her physical appearance; however there have been times she dressed in her classic attire along with other wardrobes.
Melissa is a female hedgehog. Her fur is brown, her muzzle is peach, her arms are peach, her stomach is peach, and her inner ear color is peach. Melissa's eyes are brown. She has two eyelashes on each eye. Like Amy, a tuft of hair can be seen on her forehead. Her hair is curly and held by a rubber band, and it can be seen hanging off of the side of her.
When Melissa had her first design, she looked different than she used to. Melissa had that tuft, but her hair was held up in Sonic's hairstyle, but a tad bit shorter. She wore a cyan blue shirt with poka dots on them. Instead of a neon green skirt, she has a light pink skirt. For the first time, she wore gloves with black cuffs. For shoe wear, she wore light purple shoes with red shoelaces.
Melissa wears a black shirt with a red heart on the shirt. She wears a neon green skirt that can sometimes hide her tail. She wears black ring bracelets with grey spikes on them. Her shoes are black and taller than Disease's shoes (you'll see). The shoe laces are a teal like color.
She isn't the type that likes to dress up all the time, either. Melissa generally likes to stick with one outfit normally.
Melissa has other wardrobe, but she doesn't wear them a lot. One of them is a plain white dress with a red ribbon on it, along with white flat shoes. There aren't anymore known attire that she has. She also has another dress that looks similar to the white one, but instead the other dress a bit shorter and it's a cyan blue color.
Melissa was the oldest child out of her three other siblings, Alicia, Rosalina, and Julian. Being the oldest, you'd expect her to be the bravest one, but she wasn't. When Melissa was young, she was afraid of a lot of stuff; like the dark. Word got to her great grandfather, Jacob, and he decided to make her a companion. The companion was Nega the Hedgehog. Jacob first introduced Nega to Melissa when she turned eight, as Jacob built it when she was four and finished when she was six. He also thought it would be a good surprise to wait for.
Melissa absolutely loved her surprise. For a long time until she was fifteen or so, Nega and Melissa would play almost every day in the evening. They grew a strong bond for each other. But once Melissa turned fifteen, she outgrew her childish fears. Not only that, but she left home, even Nega. But Nega was smart enough to follow her. At first Melissa didn't want him to follow her, but gradually she warmed up to him.
So they had their own adventure around Mobius. Melissa had met a couple of friends along the way, like Joanna the Hedgefox and Joanna's step sister Molly the Hedgehog. But a person she met, that meant a lot to her, was a small, young yellow Fox named Jerry. At first, Nega got jealous because Melissa spent a lot of time with Jerry, but eventually Nega got over that. So it was just the three. Jerry really liked being around Melissa. But once Melissa turned sixteen, Nega decided to go back to Melissa's family because he sensed she was ready to be on her own. So Melissa said her goodbyes to Nega, so did Jerry, and off went Nega back home. And Melissa and Jerry continued their own adventure together.
Meeting Sonic and the others
After walking around Mobius for a while, Melissa and Jerry eventually encountered Sonic. At first, Sonic thought Jerry was Tails, and that Tails was disgusing themselves. Luckily, Melissa and Jerry convinced Sonic that Jerry were not this "Tails" and that they weren't also a threat. Sonic started to slowly believe them. Eventually, Sonic was nice enough to show his party of friends to Melissa and Jerry. Jerry clicked with almost a lot of people, and Melissa did too, but she was mostly infactuated with Shadow.
Melissa no longer harbors love feelings and affections for Shadow and considers him a great friend. She no longer has a sidekick, but she and Jerry are still best friends. She's also trying to figure out her interests.
Melissa has never died. Reason Melissa never died is because she is also very cautious in her surroundings; at it is shown she has good hearing, but not too good/perfect. However, she has almost died before, but doesn't want to talk about it.
Melissa is sweet, kind, and smart. Melissa is sometimes known to be kind but headstrong and has a tendency to put too much pressure on herself to react in the most wise way. She can be very caring as well, in many cases Melissa goes out of her way to make sure her friends are safe and happy. However, when people get her agitated, she sometimes and gets aggressive (but not all the time; depends on the situation) because she's the type you really don't want to mess with under any circumstances. When angry like that, she will not bluff about anything.
Melissa has a hard time admitting how she feels, especially if it's someone she likes. Melissa can be a really sarcastic person, as some of her quotes below are very sarcastic. She's basically a person that can handle a lot of sex related jokes. However, she's not exactly that good to come up with a great comeback. Melissa is like the dare devil and she is also tomboyish. Though she likes the color pink, which proves she has some girly sides, but she likes it a lot as long as it blends in with black. Melissa ain't afraid to admit what she would have done wrong. Maybe not all cases that is true.
Melissa used to have feelings for Shadow, but he never returned the feelings, but however he likes her as a friend. But eventually, she learned it was just a silly crush that she'll never able to win over. She does, though, consider Shadow a great friend. Currently she isn't focused on romance but would love to experience it some day. However, Melissa wishes not to have a sexual relationship at all.
Melissa does possess super speed and is as fast as Scourge, and she is capable of getting up to Sonic, especially when he slows down. Melissa's primary method of attack is her own katana. She is really great at it, but she isn't Levi Ackerman-great at it. If anything, Melissa is good with her katana as Mikasa Ackerman is. More or less, she's capable of using her katana. She could spin around really fast, and her katana could make a tornado-like dust and she could escape like that, but she's working on it because it's not really efficient. Melissa can turn invisible, but she rarely uses it because she forgets that she can. Even though she can't control all the elements, Melissa can only run on water.
Because of being the cousin of Silver, one of her powers is her psychokinesis, being able to lift or throw people and objects tremendous distances with great force. She can also manipulate herself, allowing herself to levitate in the air and even move at very high speeds, very similar to Scourge's speed even. She can also project energy blasts that can either stun or deal damage to others and even form a bubble of pure psychokinetic energies that paralyze her targets. She is also capable of using her ESP to confuse her enemies.
Melissa doesn't really use her ESP powers a lot, though. She just sticks with super speed and attacking with her katana. However, if Silver is stuck in situations, she will use her ESP powers without hesitating. Melissa's been training for a little while, and she's stronger than she was a few months back.
She does have two transformations. If she uses Chaos Emeralds, she turns into Zeo Melissa. If she uses Malice Emeralds, she'll turn into Crystalline Melissa, a trait she inherited from her grandfather. Melissa never uses her transformations. Sometimes though, just in case.
Melissa can lose her tempter when you make her angry enough, and luckily she rarely swears, which is a good thing. Luckily, she's been really calm lately, so that's rare that that will happen, but still, do not make her mad. Her attitude can cause fights to start. Melissa seems to be a little noisy, much like her creator Aly. Interestingly, when she was a little kid, she had many phobias, but she outgrew a lot (but not all) them when Melissa got older. A big weakness is admitting how she feels because she has trouble explaining her feelings since she never learned really how to.
Her hearing sometimes can be fuzzy but only in noisy situations. For instance, if the room was somewhat noisy and someone quietly is speaking, Melissa can't hear it fully and can only hear parts of it. However, if the room was quiet, and someone is quietly speaking, she can hear it no problem. Melissa's hearing is really fine, but people just tend to talk quieter around her, making it harder for her to hear. So Melissa can be considered a little deaf.

Interactions with other characters
Shadow the Hedgehog
At first, Shadow didn't want to do much with Melissa. But at least he respected the fact that even though Melissa did like him as a friend, she never bugged him about it and never mentioned making a relationship or anything like that. If they were in the same room together, it would just be awkward because they wouldn't know what to say to each other. But sometimes they do help each other, and Melissa respects Shadow a lot and wouldn't bother him if he didn't want to be bothered.
Sonic the Hedgehog
When Melissa first met Sonic, and since Jerry was with her, Sonic mistook Jerry for Tails. So Melissa had to explain that Jerry was not this "Tails" person. When that was settled, they all finally warmed up to each other. Though Melissa doesn't really interact with Sonic, she thinks he's alright. In reality, there isn't really much about their relationship, but they are more or less acquaintances than anything.
At first they were rivals, but Melissa did not exactly care. Not because Melissa did anything, but since Melissa was hanging out with Sonic for a little while, Amy's senses made her think that Sonic does not like her and that he'd rather spend time with Melissa than Amy. But Melissa never liked Sonic that way, and it took a while for Melissa to explain everything to Amy. Fortunately, Amy finally realized that, but she is still cautious around Melissa when she's around Sonic. Other than that, they are perfectly fine.
Missy the Rascal
Missy the Rascal is Melissa's Moebian counterpart. Unlike most Mobian and Moebian relations, where they are enemies, Melissa and Missy are actually friends. Sometimes Melissa can consider Missy her sister because they are almost alike. Melissa even learned that Missy is pretending to act crazy and all that so that her enemies could let their guard down, and that Missy is actually a hero, considering the fact that most of Moebius is full of villians.
Silver the Hedgehog
Melissa and Silver are cousins, but when Melissa was little, she didn't really know that. As kids, they were barely interacting with each other, as they were rarely seen together. Basically, they were seperated from each other in their childhood. Eventually, Melissa forgot that Silver was even her cousin. But eventually, they reunited and they found out they're cousins. Melissa and Silver were a little surprised, but shrugged it off. They don't interact as much, but if Silver is in danger, Melissa would help out the best she could.
- Melissa is the cousin of Silver the Hedgehog. Though, they don't really interact with each other as they used to.
- Melissa has 2 super forms. If she uses Chaos Emeralds, she will transform into Zeo Melissa. However, if she uses Malice Emeralds, she will transform into Crystalline Melissa. She presumably inherited this trait from her grandfather, Mephiles.
- Melissa was the first fan character Aly ever made.
- Her middle name is Elizabeth.
- Infact, Aly's cousin's middle name is the same as well.
- She is often mistakened to be the fursona of Darklord.
- Melissa doesn't like to be called "Mary."
- Melissa seems to get along with boys more than girls, showing her tomboyish side.
- Melissa tends to do adventures on her own now, so she doesn't really have a sidekick anymore. However, her and Jerry are still close friends.
