** Well they're only fighting robots. You can argue the rings protect them from pain when they lose those. Deaths don't actually happen, so canonically they only get hurt in cutscenes. Also, there could be plenty of time between adventures, as the fact that they never age shouldn't be construed as saying all their adventures happen in the same year. Still problematic in that they must know they get close to being killed so often. Splitting the continuity up and ignoring ''Sonic Generations'' helps. Mostly just MST3KMantra though.

** Speaking of which, how comes "Ms. Giant Hammer" is always regarded as a "Speed" character when her main gimmick is ''a [[ShapedLikeItself Giant Hammer]]''.

*** Tails specifically analyzed how the Chaos Emeralds produce their energy [By harnessing thoughts/willpower and converting it into energy], but due to it being an artificial process, he could not match the exact details. It's like making a knockoff of an Ipod or any piece of tech; you can copy it with what you have, but you can't make it exactly like the real deal. Plus, producing infinite energy doesn't mean they posesse infinite energy; several times they have been depleted, only to be recharged.

** The problem with that theory is that Knuckles keeps believing Eggman that ''Sonic'' is doing something wrong. Obviously he doesn't think ''Sonic'' is fundamentally good...

** VideoGame/SonicGenerations lampshades this by having Classic Eggman say that nobody calls him Dr. Robotnik anymore. In-universe, the English version of the games made it a kind of AscendedFanon on Eggman's part. The first one to call him Eggman in the games was Sonic, who used it as an ''insult''. Later on, Eggman (Robotnik at the time) was thinking he needed an alias, and then that event popped into his head as he was thinking, and he decided to use "Eggman" out of a sense of irony or something.

** SonicGenerations mentions them directly in the story, so I'm guessing they are real.

** In the ending of Sonic Generations, Modern Tails actually asks this very question.

*** This is sort of hinted at in SonicAdventure2. Eggman's initial turf in this game consists of the interior of one ancient pyramid (which he must share with ghosts) and some (but not all!) of the desert immediately surrounding it. If he has any control over anybody able to pay taxes / be exploited, it's most likely a few scattered camel herders. This is also the game in which Eggman's resources are the most severely dwindled: He has a limited number of robots, he only mass-produces four different models (which are only ever deployed within Eggman's territory), and most of the action on the Dark Side of the story takes place because Eggman, Shadow, and Rouge form the equivalent of a special ops team, not because of some huge robot invasion or a large fleet of ships. If Eggman wasn't able to pump oil in the desert surrounding his pyramid base, he'd probably be doing even worse!

* Why have the games been sugarcoating Eggman's actions even though he has shown time and time again that he is willing to murder innocents in order to accomplish his goals? Really, I don't see why Sonic ''doesn't'' take it upon himself to arrest Eggman and send him to prison. If for some reason Sonic can't arrest Eggman, then he could just lead G.U.N over to wherever Eggman's base is and help them arrest him.
** I guess this is a thing in the recent games? The original Genesis ones don't seem to have much in the way of organized civilization, and in Sat-AM everyone had already been roboticized.
*** In the Genesis games, he enslaves animals to power his robots, which is why an animal pops out every time you destroy a badnik.
** Depends on what you mean by "recent", but yeah, starting in the first ''Sonic Adventure'' back in 1998-1999 there's a full-fledged human civilization from TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture that's vaguely aware of Sonic and Friends. The rest of the games have kept that up.
** There was apparently a mass assault on Eggman's forces two years before the events of ''Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood'', where Eggman seemingly copped it when his ship exploded. Of course, even that can't stop him, anyway. He's better at escaping than [[VideoGame/MegaMan Dr. Wily]]...



* Why is Amy railed on for stalking Sonic when that exactly how Tails befriended him?
** Not everyone's read the Japanese storyline of Sonic 2.
*** But it's also an unavoidable part of his story in Sonic Adventure.
*** Maybe they didn't play that game?
** There's a difference between being a curious child following someone cool and interesting you just met because you're too timid to speak to them, and being an obsessive StalkerWithACrush who is always chasing someone and threatening them with a big hammer because they keep trying to get away from you or because they won't date you.
* This is a bitter one, but it's been a massive irritation. When did Amy become so lusted after? I'm running into questionable fanart every two weeks, I'm finding fanfiction that either has her paired up with everyone BUT Sonic, or paired up with Sonic, who was running from her purely out of shyness, and after a dramatic declaration of love, was ready to buy a house and have 9 kids. He's known her for at least 15 years, through countless crushing hugs and restraining order justifications. If she were to suddenly become so loveable that those headaches can be forgiven, why would he not be the very first to react?
** It's the internet.
* Similar to the above, why do the people who pair up Sonic and Tails together don't remember this couple would be pedophilic(Given Sonic is a teen and Tails is a child)? I've seen some pro-gay sites saying they should hook up. I have nothing against homosexuality in reality and fiction, but pedophilia is not the same thing nor should people see it that way.
** Simply put, realizing this would require the shippers to think about something other than "this ship is the cutest in the universe!" Many people ''do'' realize this, but when shipping, it's not part of your default thought process.



* How comes Team Chaotix have ZERO interaction with Team Sonic, much less Knuckles?
* Why do people think Elise kissing Sonic is bestiality if Sonic is perfectly capable of giving consent? I would understand if she was kissing a normal hedgehog, but Sonic is sentient.
** He was also kind of ''[[ILoveTheDead dead]]'' at the time.
