* AdaptationalVillainy: Bean and Bark. The former was never implied to have any specific alignment in the games, while the latter was stated to be a GentleGiant with a kind heart. Both were turned into villains in the comic, likely as a result of [[CriticalResearchFailure the writer not knowing any better]] due to their Japanese bios [[NoExportForYou having never been officially translated]].

** Sonic himself was the subject of this trope, as "Sonic" was eventually revealed to be a pseudonym. Only his middle name ("Maurice") was revealed in the comics themselves, although his first name was originally intended to be Olgilvie (before the writer responsible left and everyone else swept the idea under the carpet).

In the beginning, the comic was a lighthearted, gag-centric affair. Each issue would feature a few silly stories of the Freedom Fighters thwarting Robotnik's dastardly, ridiculous plans while making sure to [[WorldOfPun tell as many terrible (usually pun-based) jokes as possible]], while {{breaking the fourth wall}} [[MediumAwareness left and right]]. But over time, the comic [[CerebusSyndrome adopted a much darker, more serious tone]], making it notably closer in tone and feel to the [=SatAM=] series it was inspired by in the first place. While actually tacking down when the comic started moving from gags to serious plots and drama is a bit difficult, the most certain turning point was the [=EndGame=] story arc leading up to issue 50, where Sally was killed off... [[ExecutiveVeto until someone higher up decided they didn't like it]]. Meanwhile, Knuckles the Echidna got his own spinoff series that dealt with his role as the guardian of Angel Island. It introduced quite a large ensemble of characters across its 32 issue life, most of whom made the jump into the back-up stories of the main comic when his title went under.

The comic debuted in 1992, where an initial four mini-series was commissioned to test the waters, after which a full-on monthly publication run started in July 1993. Originally, the comic worked as a tie-in with the [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM SatAM series]], though mixed with elements from [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog the other animated Sonic show at the time]] early on. As such, the two adaptions shared a similar background: Dr. Robotnik had taken over the idyllic Kingdom of Acorn, turning it into into the bleak, pollution-spewing city of Robotropolis, from where he runs his campaign to take over the rest of the word by turning all organic creatures into robots under his control. He was opposed by the Freedom Fighters, a motley crew that operated out of their secret base of Knothole inside the Great Forest. The team was composed of only a few children, namely Sonic and his friends, and led by the princess of the kingdom, Sally Acorn. Beyond this and a few other background details, the story and tone diverged greatly between them.
