* GodNeverSaidThat: Takashi Iizuka in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huQQ16PLBXc Sonic Boom 2013 - Q&A]] said ''Sonic Generations'' is an [[MilestoneCelebration anniversary game]] which causes certain fans to interpret as "[[CanonDiscontinuity non-canon]]" despite this would also apply to every other anniversary game such as ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2''.

[[note]]The confusion likely stems from ''Generations'' and the 15th anniversary game, ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'', both having been hyped up as the current MilestoneCelebration and the current generation's end-all-be-all ''Sonic the Hedgehog'' experience. The 10th anniversary game, the aforementioned ''Sonic Adventure 2'', received far less emphasis on its MilestoneCelebration status, and thus it doesn't get compared to ''[='=]06'' or ''Generations'' as often as those two games are compared to each other. ''Sonic '06'' is [[ResetButtonEnding explicitly]] non-canon. ''[=SA2=]'' and ''Generations'' are both part of the series canon, but that doesn't stop [[FanDumb some people]] from treating ''[=SA2=]'', ''[='=]06'', and ''Generations'' as being the same because they're all anniversary titles.[[/note]]



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to WordOfGod, they had hoped to make all acts playable by Classic and Modern Sonic alike. Indeed, it is possible to hack or glitch the game so that you can play Modern Sonic in Classic levels, viewed from a 3D perspective -- the Classic levels look very unfinished when viewed in this way, however. The game reportedly crashes in various ways when attempting these hacks: e.g. when Classic Sonic triggers a rainbow loop, or when Modern Sonic doesn't stop after the Classic Finish Panel and falls through the level geometry... [[spoiler:You can, at least, unlock the Modern Sonic homing attack, à-la-Sonic 4, for Classic Sonic, after collecting enough red rings in the Modern Era Act 1 levels...]]

* IKnewIt[=/=]InterfaceSpoiler: People looked at the Xbox 360 Avatar rewards for beating the game and speculated that [[spoiler:Classic Eggman has a link to the Time Eater, since said Avatar parts are all patterned after Classic Eggman. They were right.]]

* HilariousInHindsight: The earliest known prototype of ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'' features an unused "wall crash" mechanic, which causes Sonic to get stunned and bounce back off a wall if he runs into it at a high speed. Fast forward 19 years, and ''Generations'' has an unused wall crash.
** This mechanic was used in the ''Adventure'' games, as well as the Wii/PS2 versions of ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed''.

** Sega mentioned that they planned to make a stage based on [[SonicCD Wacky Workbench]], initially dropped to keep the "3 stages per era" set-up and later dropped fully when they decided against full DLC stages.

** There was also a rumour of DLC stages being released. Apart from the Casino Night pinball minigame this was false (Though Sega did mention that they did consider making a DLC stage based on [[SonicCD Wacky Workbench]])

* WordOfSaintPaul: Ian Flynn, head writer of Archie Sonic comics, believes the Time Eater is what remains of Mephiles after the time reset from Sonic 2006. This is not confirmed nor denied by Sega.
