Unlike the Avatars from Sonic Forces, the customization is totally overhauled to allow players to created unique characters to play as. Instead of a selection of animals, they have a choice of blank bodies to customize with features and colours or choose a selection of pre-made animals to begin with as templates (such as Hedgehog, Fox or Echidna). The provided features can be changed to other animals as species is not limited to choice or category allowing full creativity of the character as well the the option to name species.
Instead of skills derived from choice of animal, you can choose from the three primary Class types (Speed, Power and Fly).
You start with the choice between a basic male figure (simular to Sonic or Knuckles) or a female figure (simular to Amy or Rouge). Afterwards you can choose the size, height, bulk or how skinny the figure will be.
There will be many different selections of hairstyles and spines to choose from as well as different combinations of features for the face (eyes, nose, mouth, muzzles etc) as well as other features like tails, wings or body patterns. The colour of your avatar can be selected by RGB Colour Menu, not just fur colour but skin and other patterns. It is intended there will be at least 100 different selections on each of these features to customise your Mobians so that no two avatars will be the same.
As a database consisting of hundreds and hundreds of options can be tedious to some, an idea for a "scan" mode in which you simply upload a picture of a fan character and let the program automatically select the options that best compares to the picture.
Clothing and Accessories
While a wide variety of options to make your Mobian, there will be a standard range of clothing, equipment and accessories for your character to begin with and that you can colour (RGB Colour Menu) these items to best suit your Mobian's style. You can also collect more articles of fashion from various games, such as Sonic Aero Riders which will have a shop for sporty equipment for your avatar to wear.
Class and Skills

The class types that vary the skills your character may learn, and to a degree your avatars. Speed Types are the fastest and can have skills that boost their speed, Power Types can have abilitiesa that give their attacks more power and range, Power Types are also more adapt explorers. Fly Types have skills that allow them to defy gravity or provide air support.
Games That Avatars Can Play In
Clothing or equipment brought in exclusive games can be worn and appear in other games. In Sonic World items from other games will not be tradable.

The program itself is planned to be an initial feature which players need to design there characters to play and can earn clothing, equipment or accessories during the game for there characters apperance. It is common in most MMOGs to start off with designing a character as it is required to play and socialise in the game. Clothing and equipment worn by the Mobian in this MMOG will have the wearables as it's fashion in other games it can play in.
The Menacer is a predecessor weapon that came before wispons and all avatars use them. The Menacer consist of three seperate parts: pistol, twin sights, and shoulder stock. Replacement parts can be purchased to granted new attacks and functions for the Menacer.
The Menacer is based after the light gun for the Mega Drive.
Sonic Aero Riders

Avatars can take part as a playable racer in Sonic Aero Riders. They can ride Extreme Gear, even the custom made ones from the Garage. While Extreme Gear cannot be taken as an item outside of the game, there will be a shop for sports clothing and accesories that they can wear in Sonic Forces Online, this is so avatars can have a more sporty apperance than their regular apperance.
It hasn't been decided if certain Extreme Gear's in the game will be class restricted.
