* {{Revision}}: The ancient Echidna society from ''Sonic Adventure'' are here dubbed the Knuckles Clan, implicitly indicating that Knuckles, as the LastOfHisKind, was named after his clan rather than given a personal name.

** The Fourth Great Civilization were contemporaries of the Knuckles Tribe during their heyday -- the Knuckles Tribe being Knuckles' ancestors, from ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure''.



** The whole concept [[spoiler: of a still-living echidna race, exiled to the Twilight Cage]], sounds like what the Archie Comics did with their echidna race first.

** The Codex is filled with references to the Gizoid and the Fourth Great Civilization, which appear as plot points in ''Sonic Battle''.

* {{Flanderization}}: Subverted for the majority of the cast, who have had their usual defining quirks diluted. Big the Cat however, usually just a mellow [[TheDitz Ditz]], is now a complete air head who speaks near solely in non sequiturs. You can also choose whether to do this or subvert it with Sonic's attitude.

A sequel was announced, [[VaporWare but nothing's been heard since]]. It's very likely never coming to pass since the game was heavily inspired by the [[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog comics]], and the ensuing legal situation with Ken Penders means that it has been [[SchrodingersCanon essentially abandoned]].

* CanonDiscontinuity: Kevin Eva, who was the community manager of Sega Europe in the mid-2000s, [[https://board.sonicstadium.org/topic/19847-segas-secret-sonic-bible-that-well-probably-never-see-to-mars/?page=10#comment-964735 stated]] that ''Sonic Chronicles'' is non-canon to the main games. The Ken Penders lawsuit with Archie and Sega, which involved using substitutes of his own characters from the Archie Sonic comics, makes it very unlikely that elements from the spin-off will ever pop up again, if ever. However Aaron Webber, who is a social media coordinator at Sega of America [[https://youtu.be/axAvQSg1mM0?t=529 stated]] that "everything is canon".

However, he has also said in the same breath that the series' canon is in constant "[[DependingOnTheWriter flux]]" and can change at any given moment. Ian Flynn, chief writer of the Archie Sonic comics, [[http://www.tssznews.com/2014/02/17/flynn-updates-readers-on-new-sonic-comic-continuity/ suggested]] that ''Sonic Chronicles'' rather [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture occurs late in the chronology]] and thus is the reason why the comics wouldn't be covering it anytime soon, and Aaron Webber, who is a social media coordinator at Sega of America, [[https://youtu.be/axAvQSg1mM0?t=529 stated]] that "[[RetCanon everything is canon]]".

** Well, ''most'' of it, anyway. Amy having a tarot-themed POW move is not explained, and she'd last been seen dabbling in tarot [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogCD some 15 years prior to this game's release]].
** ContinuityPorn: Overall, the game makes a ''huge'' point to tie itself in with most of the games of the series...
** ContinuitySnarl: ...[[ZigZaggingTrope which falls flat on its face because it gets a ton of details wrong]] (some of which can be excused during [[AlternateContinuity the brief time skip]], though some can't).

** While Shadow is far from the nicest character you'll meet, he suffers from this in where he is even more bitter and aggressive towards Sonic.
