Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedCharacter: Downplayed. While Maria's presence in the game is to be expected due to her importance to Shadow's character and backstory, the fact she's a gameplay partner in two levels isn't. This also makes her among the few human playable characters in the entire series, since most partners can be controlled with a second controller.

* BadassMustache: Dr. Eggman, as always.



* BatmanGambit: Black Doom's ''entire'' plan for collecting the 7 Chaos Emeralds. He takes advantage of Shadow's amnesia and desire to learn about his past, and claims to have knowledge about all that Shadow doesn't know about - he will only share this information if Shadow retrieves the Chaos Emeralds for him. The entire scheme revolves around Black Doom expecting Shadow to collect the Emeralds, under the assumption that the hedgehog couldn't possibly resist the chance to learn the truth. This can either go [[WhatAnIdiot really badly for Black Doom]], or work out perfectly. You decide.

* GameBreakingBug: In the [=GameCube=] version, one of the GUN Troopers in [[TheMaze The Doom]] will always fail to spawn the first time. It will spawn if you come back, but it is nonetheless frustrating because it can require you to {{backtrack|ing}} quite a bit when you miss it.



** The whole endgame is a case of this, with Doom being hoist by Shadow, who's meant to be his tool.

* ItsUpToYou: Is Shadow a genocidal murderer, hell-bent on revenge, a steadfast hero who defeats the bad guys, or somewhere in between? Your choice.

** Doom, Eggman, and the GUN Commander. The GUN Commander orders his soldiers to kill Shadow, even when you're doing Doom's missions his aliens shoot at you, and in all of the levels where you can assist Eggman, regardless of the path you take, you ''still'' end up fighting him as a sub-boss. EverythingIsTryingToKillYou.

* BookEnds: The FinalBoss of this one (the last game dealing with the "Shadow's amnesia" story arc) has some similarities with the final boss of [[SonicHeroes the first game]] in the aforementioned story arc.

** Numerous levels also take place on the Space Colony ARK, which is breaking apart after the events of ''[=SA2=]'', such as Cosmic Fall, Space Gadget (which Sonic states is the remains of the area Sonic & Shadow has the final boss battles in Hero & Dark stories in ''[=SA2=]''), The ARK (which follows the same route as Final Chase, Shadow's final level in ''[=SA2=]''; both stage themes are quite similar, furthering the connection), The Doom, and Lost Impact (both of which are flashback levels which depict Shadow's life before Maria's death).

** Although very few people will come across it, if you do all dark missions before Cryptic Castle (where Amy is the hero character) and then do all hero missions after that, the pathway is titled "Miracle of Love", because Amy brought about a HeelFaceTurn for Shadow.

* ViewersAreMorons: The game never stops giving you tutorials about how to play it. Even in the Last Way, the very last level of the game, it still puts up messages on how to use basic mechanics like the homing attack.
