* 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.

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, it is [[CanonDiscontinuity no longer considered canon]] 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).

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.

* ContinuityDrift: Initially the canon Sega of America backstory, but this was either ignored or forgotten (the actual game obviously does not acknowledge the western 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.
