The plot is centered around [[MemeticBadass Dr. Robotnik]], who, in an attempt to guarantee no fun or music on Mobius, kidnaps the citizens of [[PlanetOfHats Beanville]] to be thrown into a Roboticizer-esque device, the eponymous Mean Bean-Steaming Machine, to be [[UnwillingRoboticisation converted into robotic slaves]] for the doctor. Unfortunately, Sonic himself is nowhere to be found, [[NoFourthWall so you, the player]], must take up the noble deed of bringing down Dr. Robotnik's scheme, but not before beating his mooks in their bean puzzle games!

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. It would be another few years before he got his own fangame to himself, ''VideoGame/SuperRobotnikLand''.

* DolledUpInstallment: Take the Mega Drive port of ''Puyo Puyo'', subtract the Beginner Course and all but one of the backgrounds, add passwords and different music, replace the ''Madou Monogatari'' characters with ''Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog'' characters, and you have ''Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine''. The Game Gear version followed a similar process, while the Master System version is (technically) original, being a port of the Game Gear version rather than tweaked from a previous ''Puyo Puyo'' entry.

* SequelGap: Not a sequel per se, but [[spoiler: '' VideoGame/SonicMania'' contains Mean Bean Machine's game play, both in a boss and an unlockable game mode,]] twenty-four years later.

Compare ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogSpinball Sonic Spinball]]'', which is a SpinOff game very loosely based on ''[[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM SatAM]]''. Also compare ''[[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} Kirby's Avalanche]]'' for the [[SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem SNES]], which was another ''Puyo Puyo'' mockup.

** 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).
