* ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' to ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'': The latter show was a light hearted comedic show without any of the characters being in any real danger while in ''[=SatAM=]'', Dr. Robotnik has become a power hungry dictator who has taken over the city of Mobotropolis, captured the king and thrown him into another universe, and has turned most of the inhabitants into robots to do his bidding. He is also much more menacing and capable than his other interpretations, which are generally [[IdiotBall bumbling idiots.]] Also, Sonic, Tails and a band of surviving friends known as the Freedom Fighters try to stop him from ''completely'' taking over the world- [[VillainWorld he already owns most of it]] -and must avoid being captured and roboticized in the process.
