** 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).

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* 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.

A sequel was announced, [[VaporWare but nothing's been seen of it yet]]. It is most likely to never come to pass since the game was heavily inspired by the comics and the legal situation with Ken Penders means that it has been [[CanonDiscontinuity essentially abandoned.]]

* ButtMonkey: One of the options the player has can make Shadow the butt of their joke.
-->'''Shadow:''' "I was going to beat them."\\
'''Sonic''': "Looks like the only one getting beaten around here is you!"

A while after Dr. "Eggman" Robotnik's latest defeat, the doctor is still missing in action, and is presumed dead. The peace doesn't last very long, though, as Sonic receives a call from Tails explaining that Knuckles has been kidnapped by a mysterious new group named the Marauders, who have also stolen all the Chaos Emeralds. Sonic then teams up with Tails, Amy, and Rouge in order to rescue Knuckles. Things quickly spiral out of control, with a renewed Eggman (who seems to be on the side of good), the Marauder Army, and having to go to another dimension to retrieve the stolen Chaos Emeralds, where they will have to ally with other races they meet (and rescue), defeat the DimensionLord Ix, and set things right once and for all.

* ButThouMust: Averted. If you complete the (optional) quest of reuniting Cheese with Cream, she'll ask to join you on your quest. However if you refuse multiple times she ''will'' give up.

* AnimationBump: Battles in the game run at 60FPS when it involves only two combatants. That gets cut in half [[ObviousBeta (or worse)]] when more combatants are added into the fray. One-on-one battles that pop up during the game end up invoking this as nearly all the battles in the game involve at least four fighters per side and thus miss out on the framerate boost. It helps that one-on-one battles in the game usually tend to be [[DiscOneFinalBoss bosses.]]
