* ParentalSubstitute: She practically raised Tails like a son. She puts him to bed, teaches him the finer arts of hacking and worries about his safety. He affectionately calls her "Aunt Sally".

* TeamMom: It comes with being the leader of the Freedom Fighters and the most mature. In Tails' case, she acts as a surrogate mother/big sister.

to:

* AdaptationalUgliness: While not exactly ugly, Sonic uses his less cute looking westernized design with the "mohawk".



* CharacterExaggeration: His attitude and recklessness were exaggerated much more than in any other adaptation to the point of parody.



* HeroesWantRedheads: He has a thing for Princess Sally.
* HumblePie: Several times over after his arrogance screws up a mission.



* InTheHood: He wears a red hooded cloak in "Sonic Racer" when he arrives in Robotropolis to race against the robotic cheetah. He wears one again in the LostEpisode.



* MaliciousMisnaming: He almost always refers to Robotnik as "Robuttnik." This originated in ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog,'' and carried over to ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'' and the Sonic comics based off the [=SatAM=] show.



* MurderByInaction: In a couple of instances, his hatred of Antoine actually reached such a level that he seriously considered leaving him at the mercy of a villain. Sally goaded him into rescuing him however.



* AgeLift: His age was lifted up from eight to ten.
* AscendedExtra: He started out as a TagalongKid with moments of minor usefulness. In the second season, his role was substantially expanded in the last few episodes to TVGenius. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen He was also apparently supposed to become even more prominent if the show hadn't been canceled.]]



* CharacterExaggeration: His role as Sonic's less experienced young sidekick was exaggerated to the point he became a DistressedDude who couldn't fight and had to [[DemotedToExtra stay home all the time]], even when the more inept Antoine was allowed to accompany the Freedom Fighters on missions.



* DemotedToExtra: In the games he's Sonic's right-hand man and is his sidekick. Here he's considered too young for adventures and is often a DistressedDude. Weirdly, he's actually ''older'' than he is in the canon of the games (in the games he's typically pegged to be about 8 whereas in this universe he is 10), although the world they inhabit is also far worse than that of the games as well. Early drafts of the unproduced third season would have seen Tails get a more prominent role.



* KiddieKid: He's ten instead of his game version's eight, however he acts younger and is treated younger.



* TagalongKid: Though he doesn't get to tag along that often.

to:

* TagalongKid: Though To a degree, but not to the extent he doesn't get was in the games. Begins to tag along be averted in "Drood Henge", in which he revealed that often.Sally taught him some hacking skills, and he proved himself to be resourceful, clever, and great at coming up with plans.



* FireyRedhead: She has her moments.



* HartmanHips: Depending on the artist.



* HumblePie: She's made to accept this at least once.



* MeaningfulName: It's more a coincidence than anything else, but her name comes from a Hebrew word meaning "princess".



* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: She supplies mainly in computer knowledge and hacking, but is also shown to have archeological knowledge and is implied to be as profound a mechanic as Rotor, not to mention the most dominant OnlySaneMan of the team. Given a lot of this was expanded as [[BreakoutCharacter her role became larger]], it may also count as TheMainCharactersDoEverything.



* ParentingTheHusband: She occasionally has blatant treatment of this to Sonic, [[{{Flanderization}} especially in the second season]].



* SmoochOfVictory: She gives these all the time.



* WomenAreWiser: While she has some shortcomings, comparatively, she is almost always Sonic's moral and intellectual superior.

to:

* WomenAreWiser: Thanks to her {{Flanderization}} in season two, she became this to Sonic and to an extent [[OnlySaneMan the rest of the Freedom Fighters]]. While she has some shortcomings, comparatively, she balanced with occasional NotSoAboveItAll moments in the first season, it is played more or more gratingly straight later on, to the point of almost always Sonic's moral becoming SurroundedByIdiots. Bunnie and intellectual superior.Dulcy are both ditzier than she is, though they both carry the IdiotBall a lot less often than [[TheLoad Antoine]] or even [[IdiotHero Sonic]].



* CantCatchUp: To Sonic, both literally and figuratively. He was nowhere near as fast or competent as Sonic, and despite his efforts, he couldn't make Sally admire him as much as she does Sonic.



* LovableCoward: When not an outright DirtyCoward anyway.
* NoRespectGuy: In season 2.

to:

* LovableCoward: When not an outright Arguably what Antoine was aimed towards, though {{Flanderization}} leaned him more along the lines of a {{Jerkass}} DirtyCoward anyway.
and an UpperClassTwit.
* NoRespectGuy: In season 2.Sometimes to the point of making him TheWoobie of the episode.



* TheRival: For Sonic in terms of winning Sally's affection.



* StrawLoser: In Season two. All the Freedom Fighters have noticeable flaws: Sonic in particular is incredibly arrogant and prone to endanger the team in his recklessness or lack of tact. Antoine however, is a bastion of negative human qualities and has few redeeming ones to compensate. In general, if one character has a flaw, [[ShadowArchetype Antoine has it tens times more]].





to:

\n* WeaksauceWeakness: In one episode, Antoine is being held captive and interrogated by Snively. Antoine insists that Snively can visit whatever horrors he wants upon the beleaguered coyote -- his lips are sealed. Then Snively nearly breaks him... by [[spoiler: preparing French cuisine incorrectly (making escargot with ''[[FelonyMisdemeanor margarine]]?!'').]]




* CatchPhrase: "[[OhMyGods Oh my stars!]]".



* SouthernBelle: Much more tomboyish than most examples.

to:

* SouthernBelle: Much more tomboyish of a tomboy than most examples.



* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the pilot and odd early episodes, he was more clumsy and dorky, a role that was associated more with Antoine and Dulcy afterwards.



* TheDitz: She's kind of a thick-head.



* LightningBruiser: She's both very strong and very fast, especially when she "Cracks The Whip".
* MeaningfulName: Her name is Spanish for "sweet", and she is a very nice dragon.



* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Despite displaying some incredibly powerful abilities such as ice breath at pivotal moments, rarely acts outside a mode of transportation for the heroes.
* NonSequiturThud: Basically her defining characteristic. She acts like she's being scolded by her "Ma" every time she crashes.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Unlike other lore, the resident dragon she's a complete klutz with a child-like mentality, and while she retains flight and other mythical powers, only once do we actually witness her breathe fire (to destroy an antenna).



* AndThereWasMuchRejoicing: Both the Freedom Fighters and Snively are quite glad once Robotnik's taken out of the picture.

to:

* AndThereWasMuchRejoicing: Both the Freedom Fighters AbusiveParents: Well, sort of. He's actually Snively’s uncle and he treats him like crap. As a result, Snively are quite glad once Robotnik's taken out has grown an utter dislike of Dr. Robotnik and plans to overthrow him. [[spoiler: Which he does in the picture.series finale, although it only lasted for that one episode as the series ended after that.]]



* AdaptationalUgliness: His cartoony UglyCute classic design is replaced with a genuinely ugly and more frightening design.



* AbusiveParents: Or Abusive Uncle in this case. He treats Snively like shit.

to:

* AbusiveParents: Or Abusive Uncle in this case. He treats AndThereWasMuchRejoicing: Both the Freedom Fighters and Snively like shit.are quite glad once Robotnik's taken out of the picture.



* CharacterExaggeration: The first season famously exaggerated his evilness and ruthlessness much more than any other adaptation. Then the second season did a 360 and exaggerated his other bumbliness and comical traits to the point of giving the goofiest incarnations of the character a run for their money.



* EvilLaugh: He has a series of evil laughs, ranging from low, menacing chuckling to full on deranged cackling. The fact that he's voiced by Creator/JimCummings certainly helps matters.



* TheHeavy: With very few exceptions, he drives the plot of nearly every episode, typically in the form of him doing something to obtain a powerful artifact, create an unstoppable weapon, and/or destroy the Freedom Fighters.



* LackOfEmpathy: ''In spades''.



* RealMenWearPink: His robe is purple and pink, with a giant collar for some reason. He also has pink sheets on his bed.



* RightHandCat: Cluck, although he's more of a Right Hand Mechanical Chicken.
* SketchySuccessor: He gets the job of dictator of Mobius by kicking the previous ruler into [[SealedRoomInTheMiddleOfNowhere another dimension.]] He then proceeds to turn Mobius into a polluted, mechanical wasteland where he alone gets to live in luxury (barring his nephew Snively, who while being regularly put down is at least not actively hunted).
* SmugSnake: In the second season, as his overconfidence and increasing obsession with Sonic begins to hinder his plots (as well as becoming slightly more comical and bumbling in tone).



* VillainousBreakdown: "I ''hate'' that hedgehog. I hate him! ''I hate him''! ''HATE HIM''! HATE! HATE! ''HATE!!'' '''''HAAAAATTTTEEEEEEEE'''''!!!!"

to:

* VileVillainSaccharineShow: This version of Robotnik is ''much'' scarier than other versions. One episode quite literally implies [[NightmareFuel that he doesn't have a heart!]]
* VillainousBreakdown: "I ''hate'' In the last episode:
-->'''Robotnik:''' I really...hate...
that hedgehog. I hate him. I HATE him. HATE HIM! Hate. Hate. HATE. HAAAAAAATTTTTEEEE!!!!
** That breakdown is also a MythologyGag to ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' where [[MadScientist Dr. Robotnik's]] CatchPhrase was "[[MemeticMutation I hate that hedgehog!"]]
** Robotnik suffers a more minor one in "Blast to the Past, Part 2." During this time travel adventure, it turns out that Sonic accidentally caused Robotnik's left arm to be [[UnwillingRoboticisation unwillingly roboticised]]. (He spun him around and tripped him up near the Roboticiser, you see.) Robotnik was not happy.
-->"Get that hedgehog! Get
him! ''I hate him''! ''HATE HIM''! HATE! HATE! ''HATE!!'' '''''HAAAAATTTTEEEEEEEE'''''!!!!"GET HIM!"
* VillainDecay: He becomes much more buffoonish in the second season (after all, being [[StupidEvil unreservedly sadistic has its downsides]]), giving [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog the more clownish incarnations of the character]] a run for their money.



* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He was actually a sincere YesMan to Robotnik in Season One, even taking pleasure in what rare praise he received from his BadBoss. In Season Two he blatantly loathes Robotnik and plots behind his back.



* EvilLaugh: He gave an crazy one when he believed that Robotnik died with the Doomsday Project, and the being with the red eyes in the end also gave a creepy chuckle too.



* HeelFaceTurn: He was going to become this and join the Freedom Fighters in the lost third season.



* LackOfEmpathy: While he's mostly only following orders, [[SmugSnake he isn't exactly resentful about sending a good few Freedom Fighters to the robotocizer either]].



* TheNapoleon: He was set to become this in the third season.



* RewardedAsTheTraitorDeserved: For defecting along with his Uncle Julian and assisting in the coup and robotocization of millions of innocent people, Robotnik promotes his nephew to his personal toady and punching bag.



* VileVillainLaughableLackey: He's generally comical compared to his evil uncle, Dr. Robotnik.



* AffablyEvil: he seems surprisingly friendly and easy-going when the Freedom Fighters meet him. However, he's just as ruthlessly ambitious as Robotnik, and willing to do anything in order to get his revenge on Robotnik.

to:

* TookALevelInBadass: He went from a kid that didn't go on missions and got captured to fully-fledged freedom fighter. The planned third season would have taken this further.

* RefuseToRescueTheDisliked: In "Hooked on Sonics," Antoine ends up captured by Robotnik in a reckless stunt with a power ring. While the other Freedom Fighters are horrified, Sonic just snarks it's his own stupid fault and refuses to go on a rescue mission. When Sally's chiding doesn't budge him (even she can't earnestly suggest Antoine wouldn't do the same to him), he begrudgingly goes through with it after she points out the more pragmatic issue of Robotnik using his power ring against them.

* HollywoodHacking: Her main skill and asset to her team beyond her tactical planning is her computer skills. On missions she is often the one who is tasked with infiltrating or sabotaging Robotnik's computer systems and data gathering.


Added DiffLines:

* MagicalComputer: NICOLE, a handheld computer often carried by Sally that allows her to bring up blueprints, research of all kinds, and encryption cracking software. It has a personality of its own as well.
