Why do knuckles hate the titular hedgehog?

There are a few reasons why Knuckles hates Sonic, one obvious from the movie and another from the video game series.

In the movie, Dr. Robotnik made Knuckles believe that Sonic and Tails were plotting to destroy Master Emerald, and to stay true to his cause, Knuckles was willing to attack the pair in order to keep the Emeralds safe.

Unbeknownst to Knuckles, this was all part of Dr. Robotnik’s larger plan to steal Master Emerald for himself, but despite helping Sonic and Tails defeat Robotnik, Knuckles still behaved calmly toward Sonic after the third match.

Redditors had a discussion on this very question about My voice subreddit where it was believed that although Sonic and Knuckles became friends, Knuckles was originally introduced in the franchise to compare Sonic’s upbeat and playful demeanor by being cooler and irritable.

Some have also suggested that Knuckles does not enjoy Sonic’s annoyances and may also hold a territorial grudge against the blue hedgehog.
