Blaze debuted in Sonic Rush as a playable character along with Sonic. She arrives in Sonic's dimension from another dimension along with the Sol Emeralds. While searching for the Emeralds, she befriends Sonic and Cream and helps them stop Dr. Eggman and Eggman Nega before returning to her dimension. She reappears in Sonic the Hedgehog as Silver the Hedgehog's friend during the future of Sonic's dimension. The two attempt to fix their ruined future world by traveling back in time. She appeared again as the main character in Sonic Rush Adventure, where Sonic and Tails are transported to her dimension and help her retrieve the "Jeweled Scepter".
Since her first trio of games, she has been relegated to being an extra playable character in Sonic spinoffs and multiplayer games. She is an unlockable multiplayer character in the Sonic and the Secret Rings and Sonic and the Black Knight, a playable racer in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity and Sonic Free Riders and a playable athlete in all three Mario and Sonic at the Olympics games.
Blaze has primarily been praised by critics due to possessing gameplay mechanics similar to Sonic. IGN remarked that she "easily earned her place in the team" amidst unremarkable secondary characters", because "her play style was directly influenced by Sonic". GameSpy called Blaze "a nice addition to Sonic's cast, but she doesn't bring anything new to the experience...both Blaze and Sonic play pretty much the same." Her gameplay has been praised as "fast-moving and fun" as opposed to slower characters introduced earlier in the series, such as Big the Cat. She uses her pyro powers to fight shes not good at making freinds!
Blaze is very brave indeed
