How old is Amy Rose now?

by
So, just how old is Amy Rose now anyway?

Everywhere you look for this repeats she's 12, but before we leave it at that, I think there's a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In 1993 Amy rose was profiled as 8 years old in Sonic CD, while Sonic has always remained 15.
Sonic remained 15 in Sonic Adventure, where as Amy developed a chest and suddenly aged 4 years.
Due to the usually lapsy story writing of Sonic Team, an Archie comic had to add explanation as to why this happened (because it would have been waay too difficult to simply age the other characters as well I guess? Lazy, lazy wiring).

I know it's not exactly cannon, but acording to the Mobious Enclopeadia she is 17.
" Amy Rose the Hedgehog
Biographical information
Age

11 (Born on day 186, 3226)

    Amy's physical age is closer to 17 due to using the Ring of Acorns

http://archiesonic.wikia.com/wiki/Amy_Rose

" As Nate Morgan and the Freedom Fighters prepared to venture to the Hidden City of the Ancients,
Amy wondered if she could join them as well.
But Sonic and the others protested, saying Amy was much too young.
Amy, sad at not being old enough, wandered around Knothole until she found the magical Ring of Acorns and touched it, wishing to be older.
The ring granted her wish and although she aged physically, she still had the mind of a ten year old

(I'm guessin in the comics she'd ages 2 years since Sonic CD then?).

" Additionally, she gained limited magical abilities by absorbing the rings energy, including the power to summon her magical Piko Piko Hammer from thin air.  

(Which she already had at 8 in Sonic the Fighters??)
" After this, Amy once again requested to join the Freedom Fighters, but was denied again by Sonic, who told her having an older body wasn't enough; she still had the mentality of a ten year old, and lacked any combat experience. But Nate, wishing to examine her (o rly? :p), thought that she might as well come along.

Sonics 20th Anniversary

If it wasn't confusing enough, in 2012 we had Sonics 20th Anniversary, which was celebrated as a birthday party for Sonic in one of his games, Sonic Generations.
So does this mean it was Sonics 20th birthday, or his 16th?
Does that make Amy 13? or 17?
Also, if it's Sonics 20th birthday, and Amy some how turned 16, while I'm guessing he was still 15, wouldn't that make her older than him? or did he age 2 years in the comic also and was 17? Turning 18 in Sonic Generations and making Amy 17, or did he turn 20, making Amy 19?
It's all very confusing.

Even more so for artists doing nude images of Amy Rose, as without clamming they're depicting her 'in teh futureee', their images are usually removed from most sites for being of an underage character, when in actuality, the many contradicting fucking layers of Sonic Team have in-fact made her a legal age.

Just because Sonic X didn't make a little commercial break card saying her real age, doesn't mean all this other shit never happened.
The problem is that because there are so many different versions of the Sonic universe, it's very difficult to say what her age actually is.
It's like asking ''does Sonic really have siblings?''

From the Japanese perspective, I guess she grew from 8 to 12 and Sonic remained at 15 (and is now 20?) But with Archive being American, I guess she is 16? (and Sonic is now 20?)
...Aaah, whatever, the inconsistency of Sonic Team gives me a headache.. lets just say she's 17 and call it a day. Either way, she is (by definition of story) either be 17 or 19. Not 12!


What do you guys think? Is she still 12, or can we safely say she's matured?

Yeah I don't like to think of her as 12 :L
I'd say she's 17 and draw her as if she was.

I thin Sonic was 10 in the old games, what I don't understand is if he turned from 10 to 15 in Sonic Adventure (i.e. 5 years plus) then shouldn't Amy be 13 instead of 12 considering she was 8? I dunno.

it may be hard tell but i know the comics has told that it has been 10 years have elapsed since the comic started and i think the old fan mail answer how old she is so she may be 14 or 15 or a little older not sure
