* TheFriendsWhoNeverHang: Only Sonic and Tails interact with all five other characters in the story, with Knuckles, Amy, Big and Gamma never really meeting one or two. They can still occasionally find them as generic NPCs to assist in unlocking them however.

* OutsideContextVillain: In almost all of the previous Sonic games, the threat always came from Eggman and his machines, and he simply intended to use the Chaos Emeralds as a means to an end. Chaos is the first major villain in the series to rely entirely on mystical powers instead of the threat of science and machinery to achieve his goals [[note]]The sole exception in the earlier games was Witchcart, a [[VillainOfTheWeek throwaway villain]] from ''VideoGame/TailsSkypatrol'' who could trap people in crystals.[[/note]] and unlike the [[TakeOverTheWorld one-shaded goals of]] [[CardCarryVillain Eggman]], Chaos is driven by a vengeful rage to use his power to destroy the entire planet. Even Eggman is left at his mercy when he reaches his full power as Perfect Chaos. He is also the first character in the series to have explicitly killed another character—specifically, he drove the entire Echidna race to near extinction.

** Also applies heavily to the dialogue in cutscenes that appear in multiple character's storylines. Though the general meaning of what's said stays the same, the exact words will often be different, and sometimes, which character says what will get switched around. Most notably, it occurs in Tails' story, which has large sections that overlap with Sonic'; many of Sonic's lines from his story are given to Tails instead.

* SpoilerOpening: The opening cinematic contains the destruction of Station Square and Chaos's final transformation. Since this is the first ''Sonic'' game with an unlockable secret finale, it may have been intentional to prevent players from putting the game down after completing Sonic's story. Or just to get some extra mileage out of the lengthy FMV sequence.

* CrazyPrepared: Eggman. Not only does he have the God of Destruction at his command, he has a giant flying carrier (although it functions more like a battleship), [[spoiler:a second carrier to use against Chaos if it goes rogue, a HUGE missile stationed off the coast of Station Square should the Egg Carrier and Chaos be defeated]], and a giant base in the middle of Mystic Ruins.

[[FridgeLogic All of this raises the question, however, of why he needs to gamble with controlling the God of Destruction to destroy just one city with all of these fairly potent back up plans.]]

* ContinuityLockout: No mention of [[spoiler:Super Sonic]] is made prior to his appearance in his own story. While you'd know that Sonic has a SuperMode if you played prior games, if you haven't, then it comes across as a DeusExMachina.
