** Why would Eggman logically put a wall-based model that can easily fall off the walls in an oil rig, where it could easily sink? Or in a water zone, where its circuits could get fried? Metropolis Zone is a pretty good place for it, plus it makes for a handy trap in case intruders storm the place! They're small and difficult to see (although not for us omniscient players) until it's too late, like an explosive mine.

* Okay, where do all the cries about Tails losing rings in the special stages come from? He can only lose those ''he'' grabbed, and he only grabs the rings the player missed in the first place. So even with his ArtificialStupidity, Tails can't make the player lose. The only way players can lose is through their own failure to collect and/or keep rings.

* Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has the Oil Ocean zone. Dr. Robotnik's boss machine in that level spends its time submerged in oil. When you defeat it, it explodes. Why does this not affect the oil the machine has been covered in the entire time? Or the entire ocean of it making up the level, for that matter?

** [[Sonic Mania]]'s version of Oil Ocean does have fire effect the oil, and even has that as part of the gimmick of Act 2, so there's that.
* In Sonic 2, what happens to all of those animals that fall from the sky in the Sky Chase zone?

** The new smartphone port has the special stage sin 3D with a higher POV for the player allowing them to see bombs ahead of time and plan accordingly. Tails is less of a hassle here now.

*** Dead characters being displayed in the sky is a common trope, and there's the StarsAreSouls trope. So it's not hard to see why people would interpret it like that. Whether you agree with that interpretation or not, it's still a perfectly understandable one.

* Why is Asteron in Metropolis Zone? You'd think a starfish-based enemy would be more at home in Oil Ocean Zone.

* Wouldn't starfish badniks be more at home in the Oil Ocean Zone?

**** Unless you get all 5 Chaos Emeralds and the sixth one from Silver Sonic, you can't get into the Crystal Egg Zone where Tails is being held. Therefore, Sonic fails to save Tails at all, and Tails is still in Robotnik's clutches. Whether or not he's dead is irrelevant: The point is, Sonic failed to save Tails.

* Dr. Eggman's Eggmobile in Emerald Hill uses a ''helicopter rotor'' for flight. Certainly, there's [[RuleOfCool only one reason for that.]]
