* PutOnABus: After ''Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle'' flopped with critics and retail and VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog1'' made Sega realize the technicolor insectivore was their real answer to Mario, Alex Kidd was dropped as their mascot in favor of Sonic and permanently retired from the companies game line-up. Kidd has made the occasional cameo since then, but he is largely forgotten today.

* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: VideoGame/AlexKidd was their initial answer to Nintendo's Franchise/SuperMarioBros series, but that was eventually taken over by Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog.



* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Sega was originally just a regular arcade game company for decades before they jumped into making video games around the 1970's.

* DerivativeDifferentiation: Their early games started off by shamelessly ripping off of other popular games of the day--for example, Congo Bongo, an obvious clone of VideoGame/DonkeyKong. Their original mascot, VideoGame/AlexKidd, was an obvious attempt to ride the coattails of VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1. Even their UsefulNotes/SegaMasterSystem clearly patterned itself after the [[UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES]], right down to having identical controllers. Despite success in other countries, they all badly underperformed in the US due to Nintendo having a very strong grip on the gaming market. Realizing that playing by Nintendo's own rules would get them nowhere, they decided to go in the opposite direction and become Nintendo's antithesis with the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis, aiming for older audiences and darker games with slicker graphics, action and very lax censorship policies--their first own pack-in game was ''Altered Beast'', a gory beat-em-up that would never have been allowed on the NES. Their newest mascot for the console, Sonic The Hedgehog, was a unique contrast from the Mario series in art and gameplay, and also a contrast to the Mario-derivative Alex Kidd ([[PutOnABus who was quickly abandoned by the company]] once the technicolor insectivore made waves). Unsurprisingly, it worked.
