* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Invoked; Kintobor's treadmill acknowledges a proper estimate of Sonic's natural speed using the Mass Versus Velocity theory as 17 mph, but Sonic, being as brash as he is, decides to spit in the face of it by going so fast that he breaks the sound barrier, and thus violently overloads the treadmill--and the heat from the speed also changes Sonic's color from brown to cobalt blue and permanently fuses his quills together. This does raise the question of why Sonic wasn't killed by having his body reach such a dangerously high temperature (we clearly see it burned his shoes into a crisp and warranted Kintobor to construct specialized frictionless shoes for him) or suffer from the inertia of launching himself and stopping at such incredible speed, unless we accept that he was somehow [[RequiredSecondaryPowers resilient enough to withstand that kind of situation in the first place.]]

The comic was [[ContinuityDrift initially]] meant to be the canon backstory in some form or another for the western branch of the Sonic the Hedgehog series, [[AllThereInTheManual per word of the]] [[http://sonic.wikia.com/wiki/Sonic_Bible original US Sonic series bible]], distinguishing it from the storyline of the series Japanese branch. However, none of this backstory was ever brought up or acknowledged in any of the video games, and it is [[CanonDiscontinuity no longer considered canon]] (if it ever was in the first place) due to VideoGame/SonicAdventure permanently merging the Japanese storyline of the Sonic games with that of the western Sonic games. It did provide the backbone for Fleetway's ComicBook/SonicTheComic, which borrowed the same origin story (and curiously did an adaptation of ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' without nullifying any of the previous continuity).

But one day, Kintobor [[NiceJobBreakingItHero spills a drink on the R.O.C.C. controls]], causing the machine to go haywire; not only scattering the R.O.C.C.'s containment rings all over South Island, but also bathing Kintobor in 10,000 bolts of Pure Evil Energy, causing him to transform into Dr. Robotnik.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Ovi Kintobor is obviously patterned after AlbertEinstein.

* WritingAroundTrademarks: While the Mass Vs. Velocity theory was written by AlbertEinstein, here he's called [[PunnyName Eggstein]] due to the Einstein name being trademarked.

No relation to [[ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog comic series]], which has a completely different backstory and continuity, despite also being ([[ContinuityReboot or rather, was]]) set on Mobius. However, Fleetway's ComicBook/SonicTheComic did borrow its backstory from this promotional comic.

* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: The original game proper had a [[ExcusePlot straightforward, kiddy good vs. evil scenario]]. This comic practically turns it into a tragedy for kids.
