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 jokes as possible]]. Over time it adopted a much darker, more serious tone. 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.

* AdaptationalBadass: One of the most striking differences is as a whole the new universe is more full of heroic figures, and both sides are more competent as a whole

As of early 2017, the series has gone into an indefinite hiatus (alongside Archie's ''Mega Man'' comic), and subscribers have gotten refunds. It isn't known if the series will be outright cancelled, or will eventually return in the future.

* ReliableTraitor:
** Robotnik re-recruits Snively by out-and-out telling him that this is his role, but that he plans to be ready for the inevitable backstab.
** Pretty much applies to all his Egg Bosses.

** Knuckles often calls Sonic obnoxious and having a big ego, but Knuckles himself is no easier to deal with. His entire training as guardian basically made an antisocial hot-head who sees everyone, even children, as enemies and always resorts to using his fists before reason. That being said he's miles better than the rest of his family as he actually tries to help everyone.

** Of particular note is Knuckles, who was left in a wilderness by his father at a young age, and was then spied on by him for a while. This happened to every Guardian before him, but Locke had a particularly hard time with it, which eventually tore their family apart and caused his wife to leave him.

* StoryBreadcrumbs: While Ian Flynn [[http://www.bumbleking.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7510&start=270#p413075 has the entire post-Super Genesis Wave timeline mapped out from the very first issue]], he can't reveal the entire thing in the comics, so he'll drop bits and pieces of it as the years go on.

** Averted with Anti-Knuckles, who's a good guy, just more mellow and pacifistic than Knuckles[[note]]and speaks with an Irish accent, for some reason[[/note]]. That doesn't stop him from fighting when he thinks he has to, though.

* [[spoiler: PortalCrossroadWorld: It is foreshadowed by Sticks at the end of Worlds Unite where that the all worlds and Genesis portals might be connected by a nexus at the center. The final page shows a mysterious world in space surrounded by Genesis portals and geometric moons/planetoids (slightly hard to tell).]]

* CowardlyLion: Antoine is usually a coward in most situations but he can be realiable when it really matters. He gets better later on though, even throwing himself into danger willingly to carry out his duty.
