However, when the trio finally reach the generator, they find that the story was a ruse to extract Sonic's DNA and enable the completion of Hyper Metal Sonic: a robotic dopplegänger who not only has Sonic's speed, but Sonic's personality as well. Also, it turns out that Robotnik [[ILied actually has no compunctions]] about blowing up Planet Freedom, since he'll then rule it by default -- followed by a life of undisturbed marital bliss with Princess Sara...''[[IHaveYouNowMyPretty brrr.]]''

** Fireball20XL's ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HgYA-32v9Q Sonic Bastardized]]'' is a redubbed adaptation in which [[strike:Robotnik]] Eggman wants Sonic to go shut off a bomb he planted in Creator/BlizzardEntertainment's mainframe (in retribution for his ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' losses), and Metal Sonic is a robot named Hyper Metal Jason (after Creator/JasonGriffith) that Eggman intends to use to replace Sonic's voice.

* CanonDiscontinuity[=/=]ExiledFromContinuity: While it was a [[AlternateContinuity self-contained part of the franchise to begin with]], Sega ''never'' acknowledges it in any of ''Sonic'' histories (barring an offhand mention and inclusion of its Japanese trailer in ''VideoGame/SonicJam''), and the film has never seen a rerelease since 2004, and it is unlikely to get another one. Also, per word of Ian Flynn, because of [[ScrewedByTheLawyers legal issues]] involving Sega of America and Sega of Japans seperate copyrights on the movie (a problem that also keeps exclusive characters from other non-game continuities such as the ''Sonic X'' comic from appearing in Archie), Sega has explicitly forbidden the Archie ''Sonic'' comics from using any characters or elements from the movie. [[note]] In Issue #101, Knuckles' hat, Sara, and Metal Robotnik Jr. made brief cameos as an affectionate nod to the film, which earned them a hell of a dressing down by Sega.[[/note]]

** Later games such as ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' did away with all ambiguity by calling it "earth" and showing Sonic traveling from city to city, [[LightNovel/KinosJourney Kino]]-style, and interacting with humans. Would that the OVA thought up such a mundane solution!

* DubNameChange: The official English dub renames Dr. Eggman to Dr. Robotnik for one of the last few times (as it was released in 1999). To go along with it, Eggmanland was renamed Robotropolis (as a ShoutOut to the [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM saturday morning cartoon]]) and Black Eggman was renamed Metal Robotnik. In addition, Seira was renamed Sara; her and Eggman's names are still displayed clearly in the fighting game gag, however. The official subtitles included in the DVD release go with the Japanese terminology and retranslate the script more accurately to boot. Cue SubbingVersusDubbing.

* {{Mondegreen}}:
** In the English version, Robotnik's cry of "SHUT UP! HEED ME!" was thought to have been "SHUT UP! EAT ME!"
** Done again earlier in the movie where, because of the actor's very nasal voice, Tails shouting "YOU'RE NO HELP!" sounds like [[PrecisionFStrike "GO TO HELL!"]]

* PowerCreepPowerSeep: In ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles S3&K]]'', Knuckles could glide through the air. Here, it gets upgraded to the ability to jump ridiculously high, hover in midair, and possibly fly outright.
** Like Tails' propensity for mechanical shenanigans, seems to be the start of a trend of non-game media to upgrade Knuckles' gliding to full-fledged flight.

** Several of Tails' game bios mention that he's afraid of lighting. The earliest known mention of this trait in the context of the games was Sonic Jam, which came out a year after this OVA, so it's likely another example of the trope.

* ShoutOut: One of the derelict aircraft on Sonic's island looks suspiciously like [[Franchise/StarTrek the USS Enterprise]]. Also, Sera's wedding dress is reminiscent of [[Franchise/SailorMoon Neo-Queen Serenity]]'s outfit.
