As mentioned, some titles in the series have been notable for suffering mixed to negative critical reception. In line with all the controversy, large varieties of theories exist to explain why the Sonic series is struggling in terms of reviews such as [[ExecutiveMeddling hastened]] [[ChristmasRushed development for deadlines]], a lack of talent or caring from the development team, over-reliance on [[UnexpectedGameplayChange new "gimmicky" gameplay styles or features,]] [[DarkerAndEdgier taking the series in too dark of a direction,]] [[NostalgiaFilter unrealistic demands from nostalgic fans]], or the inability to give the franchise a concrete identity.

* NoEndorHolocaust: Takashi Iizuka said in a 2017 interview that Eggman blowing up half the moon in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' did '''not''' affect the worlds tides, even though [[ArtisticLicensePhysics by all accounts it should have caused catastrophic flooding worldwide.]]

* UrbanRuins: The ''Sonic'' series frequently employs this trope:
** Dr. Eggman attempts to release Chaos in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' in order to turn Station Square into here. [[spoiler:In the Last Story, this comes to fruition when Perfect Chaos floods the city.]]
** ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'' opens in Westopolis as an AlienInvasion and {{Kill Sat}}s leave the city smothered in flames.
** Crisis City from ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' is the BadFuture version of Soleanna after [[PlayingWithFire Iblis]] was released. The same setting is revisited in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'', thanks to that game's TimeCrash.

* PantslessMalesFullyDressedFemales

to:

* PantslessMalesFullyDressedFemalesPantslessMalesFullyDressedFemales: Outside of alternate media, this is the default rule for non-human characters in the Sonic franchise. The one exception comes in ''VideoGame/SonicForces''. By default, the male avatar is naked and the female one wears a bodysuit, but not only is it possible to fully dress a male avatar, but also if you select a body tattoo or fur pattern for a bodysuit, you can have a pantsless (or nude) female avatar.

** This has somewhat changed in ''VideoGame/SonicForces'', where if the avatar character is wearing sandals, he/she is shown with only one toe on each foot.

Sonic hit a bit of a DorkAge during the run of SEGA's Saturn console, which was a good deal less successful than its predecessor. The spinoff game, ''VideoGame/SonicR'', was the only noteworthy Sonic game on the console. ''Sonic [[XtremeKoolLetterz X-Treme]]'' was announced, but it was cancelled due to a permission dispute between developers, and filled in at the 11th hour by a upgraded port of the less-than-stellar ''VideoGame/Sonic3DFlickiesIsland''.
