* SecondHourSuperpower: Applies to certain upgrades that all of the characters receive early on, which grant abilities that become essential game mechanics throughout the rest of the game. It can be weird starting a new save file after playing on an old one for a while and realizing that these abilities aren't available from the very start of the game.
** Sonic and Shadow respectively each get the Light Dash shoes.
** Tails and Eggman get Hovering boosters.
** Knuckles and Rouge get digging tools.

* CopyAndPasteEnvironments: While there are numbers objects shared between multiple states, the two that truly stand out are Knuckles' level Wild Canyon and Rouge's level Dry Lagoon, which share the exactly same geometry, only having different textures.

* BlindIdiotTranslation: There's one thing that the translators consistently screwed up, and that was whether the word "emerald" is singular or plural. This is because Japanese nouns don't have plural forms, unlike English ones, requiring the translator to take note of the context to determine if a word is singular or plural. However, these translators didn't do that, leaving some characters to say "emerald" when they're referring to multiple chaos emeralds.

** [[spoiler:Sonic's DisneyDeath at the near-end of both the Hero and Dark stories]] are notable in that, while filled with [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt like-you-would-really-do-it]], the game seems to be pretty [[IncrediblyLamePun dead]] serious about it, despite the one involved being [[spoiler:the series' namesake]]. [[UpToEleven Even more so]] with the [[RashomonStyle version of the same scene]] seen in the Dark story, as there's literally ''no'' clue that [[spoiler:Sonic would survive]] ''despite'' NoOneCouldSurviveThat. (That is until [[spoiler:he]] showed up as the FinalBoss.)
** The game also appears to kill off one of its main characters at the end. Future titles would {{retcon}} this, as said character turned out to be too popular to die.

* YourSizeMayVary: In VideoGame/SonicAdventure, the Master Emerald was as big as a car. In this game, it's about as tall as Knuckles.

* YourSizeMayVary: In VideoGame/SonicAdventure, the Master Emerald was as big as a car. In this game, it's about as tall as Knuckles. Also present with the Emerald within the game itself. In the cutscene before Cannon's Core, it's much smaller than usual even in this game, being able to fit in Knuckle's hand.

* ContrivedCoincidence: Shadow the Hedgehog just happens to not only be a super fast hedgehog with an identical move set to Sonic, but has an uncanny resemblance to Super Sonic and is also able to go super like Sonic does, despite his creation predating Sonic's birth by 35 years. What are the odds?
** Gerald Robotnik was known to have researched Angel Island extensively as mentioned ''VideoGame/SonicBattle''. As such it's widely accepted that Shadow's hedgehog form is directly inspired by the Hidden Palace Zone mural and the Sonic statues in Hydrocity Zone of ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles''.

''VideoGame/SonicBattle'' at least gave a retroactive explanation for this--Gerald Robotnik, Shadow's creator, had researched Angel Island extensively as mentioned ''VideoGame/SonicBattle''. As such it's widely accepted that in the past, likely being inspired to base Shadow's hedgehog form is directly inspired by appearance on the Hidden Palace Zone mural foreshadowing Super Sonic's battle with Eggman (along with the statues of Sonic in Hydrocity) at the end of the ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles''. The presence of Artificial Chaos and the Sonic statues in Hydrocity Zone of ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles''.mockup Master Emerald Shrine inside the ARK support this as well.

* PlotArmor: [[spoiler: Because Sonic is the hero and obviously can't be permanently killed off, he's given a ''very'' contrived way of surviving getting jettisoned into space ala an explosive rigged escape pod by Eggman--he had a fake Chaos Emerald with him and was somehow able to use Chaos Control with it to teleport away. Even Sonic admits he has no idea how he was able to pull it off.]]

* NoOSHACompliance:
** In "City Escape", who decided it was a good idea to put a giant loop de loop with speed boosters that sends you hurling down a tall building in a public park area?!
** Prison Island wouldn't pass OSHA standards either, most egregiously with the giant pit surrounding the area Rouge fights a G.U.N. robot in.
** The OSHA would've had a fit if they set foot on the Space Colony Ark--the entire station is a giant death trap, most egregiously with its fragile air locks throughout the hallways.
