* {{Flanderization}}: His arrogance and recklessness come at the cost of his competence a lot more in the second season, more than half the episodes revolve around him causing a problem by rushing into things. His flat-out naked contempt toward Antoine becomes blatant to the point where he is rarely able to even look at Antoine without bursting into snide insults. Other traits were effected, though were usually more a case of DependingOnTheWriter.

* SmugSuper: To the point that one of Snively's schemes was designed to manipulate his ego. Sonic is genuinely competent and heroic, however he has no problem constantly bragging about it. In the second season, he would even [[{{Flanderization}} screw up missions due to his overconfidence.]]

* {{Flanderization}}: She had her positive aspects exaggerated, starting off as a NotSoDifferent Foil for Sonic in season 1 and then practically acting as his HyperCompetentSidekick in season 2 to accommodate his increased recklessness.

to:

* {{Flanderization}}: She In Season One, while the more lucid of the two, Sally was [[NotSoDifferent still as error prone and stubborn in her own methods]] as Sonic was his, with both making up for one's follies as often as the other. Sally had her positive aspects exaggerated, starting off as a NotSoDifferent Foil for Sonic qualities more focused in season 1 and then practically acting as his Season Two, making her more a HyperCompetentSidekick in season 2 to accommodate his Sonic's increased recklessness.recklessness and lack of intellect.

* AdaptationalBadass: Satam Robotnik is more far more smart and evil than any other version of the character. Also, he's the only version of Robotnik who successfully took over the world with no problems at all.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Before and after this show aired, Robotnik was either portrayed as LaughablyEvil or an [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog Incredibly]] LargeHam, [=SatAM=] not only showed his actions in a more serious and sinister light but it also made him a [[NotSoHarmlessVillain legitimate threat]].

* BadAss: This Robotnik is one of the few incarnations to have actually taken over the world. That alone is pretty badass in it's own right but this incarnation practically turns it [[UpToEleven up to eleven]] by also giving him a baritone voice, an even more badass mustache, a pair of black red eyes, and tops it off by making him a cyborg.

* TheLancer: [[PlayingWithATrope Creates a strange dynamic]] where Sonic is TheLancer to Sally being TheLeader, but ''Sally is TheLancer to Sonic being TheLeader.'' It enhances their status as the OfficialCouple of the series.

* SycophanticServant: In season One, he is far less hateful towards his uncle and even seems to enjoy getting his rare praise. It's [[InferredTrope inferred]] that Robotnik's BadBoss traits eventually resulted in a case of BrokenPedestal, causing him to hate his uncle and want to get rid of him.

* PunnyName: "Rabbot"... as in "'''Rab'''bit Ro'''bot'''". She's half rabbit, and half robot. It's actually a nickname the rest of the group took to calling her and which stuck.

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: In the second season, even his formerly [[SycophanticServant sycophantic]] nephew absolutely hates his guts.



* InNameOnly: There are about 8 similarities that this Robotnik has with his game counterpart. His name, the fact that he uses robots to conquer things, that he turns animals into robots, his scientific prowess, his BadassMustache, his BaldOfEvil, his egg-shaped body (even further emphasized with his pointed head), and the colors of his wardrobe. Remove his name and wardrobe coloring and this man is practically a separate character.
* KilledOffForReal: Heavily implied to be this in the [[GrandFinale Series Finale]].

* NotSoAboveItAll: Though the show boasted a far more sinister and fearsome rendition of the doctor, he couldn't go ''completely'' without comical moments. His fear-driven demeanour throughout "The Void" in particular is quite clownish.

* {{Pride}}: While this version of the doctor is genuinely calculating and dangerous, his FatalFlaw is still his arrogant over assurance he is invincible. As the series progresses, he starts to display more foolish and deluded aspects, and ultimately his own downfall is caused primarily by careless oversights and blunt refusal to accept any possibility that Sonic was capable of defeating him.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: The red lights in his eyes flare whenever he gets pissed.
* RedRightHand: His roboticized left arm and (possibly) cybernetic eyes.
* StupidEvil: [[{{Flanderization}} In Season 2.]] While in his past he was able to make lengthy charades to maintain his plans for power, by Season Two, Robotnik just can't resist [[KickTheDog Kicking The Dog]] at the most inappropriate times.

* VillainWithGoodPublicity: He was this during the GreatOffscreenWar, using his technology to improve the quality of life and fight a war for the King... until he was able to [[MilitaryCoup maneuver himself into power with his robot army just after the war ended]].

* KnightOfCerebus: Implied as such, had his role as BigBad in the Third Season ever took place. This is the guy who makes Robotnik ''quiver in terror''.
