* Where did this common fan notion that VideoGame/KnucklesChaotix is CanonDiscontinuity come from? Just the fact that Iizuka claimed that he treated Vector, Espio and Charmy as new characters?

*** Sonic isn't hydrophobic, he just can't swim, so he avoids water whenever he can. Even in Sonic X, he was pretty calm when he had to go underwater, and even when he was in the process of drowning.

*** The auto-shield is what happens in ''SonicUnleashed''. There's some weird force field around him when he boosts, which presumably keeps the air around him moving at the same speed as him.

* Probably not as much of a headscratcher than a question, but; from game to game, we get different zones, stages, and levels for the sake of variety. We get a beach level, a city level, an ice level, pinball level, and pretty much every one of the cliche levels the series has spawned. Now, at least in the main games, should we believe all of the stages are a part of the same world the series takes place on? The correct geography of Sonic's world is hard to pinpoint; in VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog, it does show that the world map does resemble Earth, and SonicUnleashed pretty blatantly puts in different countries based on Earth's culture. So, can we say Empire City and/or Westopolis are a part of Station Square, possibly New York in the future? Apotos being Greece in the future? All ice levels being different parts of Holoska?

** More often than not, Eggman has some kind of escape route or device that lets him get away, or he gets knocked away relatively harmlessly (like in Sonic Unleashed when he gets punted away by one of Dark Gaia's head-tentacles). If we take Sonic 2 into account, on the Death Egg, we see Eggman running away from Sonic/Tails at a hilariously brisk pace, and then he hops down into a hatch, which presumably is the head of the Giant Eggman mech final boss. But only a second after we see Eggman hop into the hatch does the mech's head appear. What if Eggman actually hopped down into an escape hatch and the Giant Mech only appeared above the airlock to cover his tracks as a contingency plan in case someone tried to hop down as well and chase him? Dude's got an enormous IQ, and it's not like he doesn't plan ahead for potential future events (he just isn't very good at fully predicting / handling them). As for Sonic 3, in the Doomsday Zone, we see Hyper Sonic defeat the mecha, but we don't see the mecha blow up, so odds are Eggman just ejected out into a capsule or shuttle that let him flee from the overpowered, technicolor freak of nature.

* Does Sega currently own the rights to the Sonic theme? They couldn't use it in Spinball due to rights issues, but it later surfaced in more recent games such as Sonic Advance (as the invincibility theme) and Sonic Generations.

** SonicUnderground actually offers a pretty interesting suggestion that is mentioned in one or two episodes: He taxes the people under his rule, quite possibly in exchange for not getting roboticised. While the extent of Eggman's empire is never very consistent in the games, it's possible that he could be extorting money from the people within his control for at least a portion of his fiscal resources.

** Oh that's easy. It's a world under Eggman's rule where robots...[[WellIntentionedExtremist do all of the work]]...huh...Would...would being ruled by Eggman be awesome? Since Eggman is such a genius, he could possibly come up with solutions to problems that really need to be solved. Hell, if you get to keep your mind, being "robotisized" like from SonicSatAM might be cool once Eggman doesn't need to keep them under his complete control anymore. As the Eggman from the games is pretty much nothing like the one from SonicSatAM.

** One could also take the same explanation ''Film/{{Clerks}}'' uses for the rebuilding of the Death Star in ''ReturnOfTheJedi'': He uses independent contractors who don't particularly care about anything but the money.

** Probably due to a combination of the Adventure series' infamous UnexpectedGameplayChange, the poor reception of later 3d games (and rereleases of the Adventure games), and the endless whining of the franchise's UnpleasableFanbase tainting Sonic's name.
