** The biggest examples of this are Spike, who is obscured by the booing crowd at the bounty hunter's convention (with slightly lighter colors), and Humpty, who makes a blink and miss appearance as a giant robot fully colored green along with a twin (presumably Dumpty).

* AscendedExtra: The majority of enemies you face in this game were minor characters in the pilot episode for ''Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog'' ("Sonic Search and Smash Squad"). Most of them aren't even granted real names or speaking roles outside this game.

Despite getting [[AntagonistTitle top billing]], you do ''not'' get to play as Dr. Robotnik in this game. Gamers would have to wait until ''VideoGame/SonicDrift'', ''VideoGame/SonicR'' and ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' before gamers could play as him, and this was only franchise's main Robotnik/Eggman character, but it would be another few years before he got his own fangame to himself, ''VideoGame/SuperRobotnikLand''.

* InNameOnly: Anyone who didn't grow up watching ''Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog'' may question its relation to the franchise at all. The name itself even slips into obscurity due to the name Robotnik being fazed out for the Japanese moniker Eggman (indeed when the game was finally released in Japan through ''Sonic Mega Collection'', it was retitled ''Dr. Eggman's Mean Bean Machine'').

* AbsenteeActor: The first game in the ''Sonic the Hedgehog'' series, and one of the very few in the franchise as a whole, to not feature Sonic himself in any form. This direction seems odd since the original ''Puyo Puyo'' utilized a player character and even featured them in cutscenes (which were edited to the enemy facing the screen for this retool). This is also one of a handful of Sonic games (not counting games that predate his debut) where Tails is absent from.

Added DiffLines:

* ADayInTheLimelight: Averted. Dr. Robotnik may get [[AntagonistTitle top billing]], but he has ''less'' screentime than in the other Sonic games, and he isn't a playable character.

* {{Expy}}: Has Bean for [[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Puyo Puyo's]] mascot, Carbuncle. While the exact same sprite, the manual excuses him as a robotocized Beanville civilian, with traces of his original jollier personality remaining.

** All the enemies have the same AI as their ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' counterparts of the same level they appear in. The only exception is Arms, whose AI resembles that of Skeleton-T instead of Draco Centauros. Also, Zoh Daimaoh's ground-shaking effect is not used in his equivalent in this game, Sir Ffuzzy-Logik, but on Franky and Dragon Breath.


Added DiffLines:

* WakeUpCallBoss: Two characters provide a stronger challenge not because of DifficultyByAcceleration but because of their AI: Franky can catch slower players off-guard by dropping four rows of beans quickly and letting him make combos without any effort; Dynamight is the first AI character that tries to build chains ''on purpose'', punishing players that had not yet learnt how to make chains.

* CutSong: While heavily-redone versions of "Theme of Puyo Puyo" and "Brave of Puyo Puyo" were used in the final version, more faithful remixes of both songs are buried within the game's audio data. Some premixes of the later stage themes are also present.
