** ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic 3]]'' takes place immediately after the 16-bit version of ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2 Sonic 2]]''. Sonic rides Tails's biplane back down to sea level to escape the Death Egg that ended ''Sonic 2''. The first land sighted happens to be the Floating Island, where guardian Knuckles the Echidna ambushes Sonic and steals his Chaos Emeralds, kicking off the plot of ''Sonic 3''. The Death Egg crash-landed here too, and Dr. Eggman wants those Emeralds to relaunch it. ''Sonic 3'' ends and ''Sonic & Knuckles'' begins when Eggman finds the Hidden Palace and its Super Emeralds (although this is a subversion since ''Sonic 3'' and ''Sonic & Knuckles'' are actually OneGameForThePriceOfTwo so they were never meant to be separate installments in the first place).
** ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' ends with [[spoiler:the Phantom Ruby opening a dimensional portal and traveling through it, pulling Sonic into it in the process. The both of them wind up in the dimension of Modern Sonic, where Dr. Eggman uses the Phantom Ruby to TakeOverTheWorld before ''Sonic Mania'''s Sonic could arrive there, kicking off the story for ''VideoGame/SonicForces'
