Vector is 20 years old in the newest Sonic games.
Weight: 440 lbs.
Vector is strong because he is large, but his real strength lies in his jaws. One bite from Vector and a cinderblock will be gravel.
Vector also has a loud singing voice that can temporarily stun or damage living tissue.
Vector the Crocodile (ベクター・ザ・クロコダイル, Bekutā za Kurokodairu) is a large, strong, anthropomorphic crocodile. His name comes from a "vector", this being a reference to his ability to air dash in 8 directions.
Vector is known to do just about anything for money. He has a somewhat rough and rude personality, but deep down he's actually quite a kind soul, and has been known to occasionally help people for charity. Although his brash attitude and childish behavior might make him appear otherwise, Vector is in fact a very clever and capable leader. Besides money, Vector's main joys in life are music (as shown by the headphones), and food. In Sonic Heroes, where the characters occasionally speak when standing in one spot for a bit, Vector starts playing an air guitar while imitating it's sounds, remembers he keeps forgetting paying a bill as well as stating "I'm Starvin'."
Like most Sonic characters, Vector can curl up into a ball to jump on enemies, in a move known as the "spin jump". He is also known to be quite powerful, as he was the power team member in Sonic Heroes. He has some super speed, as seen in Chaotix, although he isn't as fast as Sonic, Shadow, Amy, or even Espio. Vector can use bubbles blown up with bubblegum to slowly descend, he can shoot fire out of his mouth, and is able to slam his body on the ground to cause massive damage. In Sonic Heroes, he can also hold and throw Espio and Charmy using his mouth. He can also spit musical notes, breath fire, shoot exploding bubblegum, and can use his sharp teeth to bite through hard obstacles. He can also sing, which he does during the Team Chaotix' Team Blast, "Chaotix Recital" though it could be argued that his singing is so bad that it destroyed the robots.
In the Archie comics, Vector's main method of attack is using turning the volume of his walkman up so loud that it can physically blow down any enemies it's pointed at.
Vector was first slated to appear in the Sonic the Hedgehog sound test, but it was cut to make room for the "SEGA" jingle, and he appeared in Knuckles' Chaotix. The Japanese manual states that after an island rises from the ocean depths, Vector travels there as he interpreted the islands sudden appearance from out of nowhere as a miracle from God. Vector is a playable character that can do mid-air dashes and climb on walls.
In Sonic Heroes, Vector is the "power" character, meaning that he can destroy enemies and obstacles with ease by biting them and throwing his partners with his mouth. He can also punch the ground, float above fans with a bubblegum, and spit music, fire and exploding bubblegum at enemies.
In Shadow the Hedgehog, Vector is a partner character on the "Cosmic Fall" stage. Vector is looking for the main computer room on the Space Colony ARK, and the player can choose to help him as the "hero" mission (His most well-known speech here is "Find the computer room!"). Vector then helps the player with the following boss battle, either against Eggman or Black Doom. After Black Doom is defeated, he reveals that Shadow is just a failed experiment, and Shadow slowly walks away as Vector desperately tries to comfort him. That ending is however only a possibility, and not canon to the storyline.
Vector is playable in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games as a power type character, unlike the other two Chaotix who are referees. As of that game, Dan Green, who voices Knuckles the Echidna (As of the 2005 video game, Shadow the Hedgehog), will provide his voice.
Vector appears in Sonic Rivals 2, issuing Espio with the task of solving the case of the Chao disappearances.
=In the Comics=
The Sonic the Hedgehog Archie comics depicted Vector as Knuckles' oldest friend and the first member of the Chaotix. In typical Knuckles continuity, they got into a fight upon their first meeting but soon became friends. Vector continued to support Knuckles as Mighty, Charmy, Espio, and Ray joined the group. However, upon Julie-Su's joining, Vector distrusted her due to having previously been attacked by her while she worked for the Dark Legion. Later, following Knuckles' death, they reconciled and have since maintained a good relationship. As is the case with the rest of the Chaotix, Vector was captured by Dr. Robotnik and transported to the Egg Grape Chamber. Thanks to the efforts of Knuckles and other escapees, he and the others were soon rescued, and Vector gained a measure of revenge by helping defeat Robotnik's first attack on New Mobotropolis. it has been revealed that he use to live in Downunda and that he talks street to hide his Downunda accent. He stated that he troubles with his dad expectations.
In Sonic the Comic Vector is the scientifically intelligent leader of the Chaotix crew and a close friend to the Omni-Viewer, with links to the Equionix Research Center. He acts as the basic straight man of the group and takes out enemies with his powerful jaws.
