* ContinuityDrift: Initially the canon Sega of America backstory, but this was either ignored or forgotten (the actual game does not acknowledge the backstory this comic elaborates on, since Sega of America didn't have a hand in its creation), and it was made moot anyway when ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' nullified the concept of different localizations getting different storylines. Later games like ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' would introduce story elements that would contradict the events of this comic anyway, such as the games clearly being set on Earth and Ivo Robotnik having a grandfather in canon whose surname is Robotnik, which rules out the Ovi Kintobor backstory.

* DramaticIrony: The benevolent Ovi Kintobor built the R.O.C.C. machine to rid the world of all evil by using the power of the Chaos Emeralds, but it unwittingly ended up making him into the very thing he wanted to destroy by transforming him, both physically and mentally, into the pure evil Dr. Ivo Robotnik.

* DownerEnding: If you take the story at face value as the official backstory for the classic games, Sonic was never able to return Ivo Robotnik back into Ovi Kintobor.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The backstory presented here for Sonic and Robotnik is very odd and quite different from their more straightforward rivalry in the games proper.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The backstory presented here for Sonic and Robotnik is very odd and quite different from their more straightforward rivalry in the games proper. And because this was made as part of the long abandoned western storyline for the Sonic games, it also has outdated story elements that were ignored and later dropped from canon, such as Sonic being on Möbius instead of Earth.

* AdaptationExpansion: The game tries to elaborate on the backstory for the the original game and explain elements of it, such as the purpose of the Chaos Emeralds (they were magical items meant to be used for good purposes and rid the world of evil) and the rings (which are [[HandWave handwaved]] as being "Containment Rings" for the R.O.C.C. machine and its energy, which got scattered all over the island when the machine went haywire).

* ForWantOfANail: If Kintobor had just kept that soda away from the machine (or at least made the machinery waterproof in the first place), the entire plot (and by proxy, the entire series) wouldn't have started.

Added DiffLines:

** The idea of the Chaos Emeralds being able to control evil energy is an idea that would be used later in ''Sonic Adventure'', albeit referred to as the Chaos Emeralds having both positive and negative energy inside of them.

Added DiffLines:

* BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil: Kintobor believes he can tip the scales in the favor of good by using the R.O.C.C. machine to harness the power of the Chaos Emeralds and use them to rid the world of all evil, trapping it inside of the machine.
