* FakeLongevity: Totally and completely [[AvertedTrope averted.]] The red rings and the S ranks are completely optional. In fact, you can't fight any boss as Super Sonic (gotten through the red rings). So all of that really is for fun and not for completion of the regular game. It can take 40+ hours to finish the game if you are going for all red rings and S ranks, but only 10-15 if you are going for the regular game only.

** Each zone has two or three stages that are expansive, have alternate paths, have a good percentage of 3D, and are generally 2-4 minutes long. Everything else are just minute-long sections of these bigger stages that rely on gimmicks to pad them out, especially in regards to the switch-activated moving platform stages.

** Played straight in the DS version, however. Albeit with [[SongsInTheKeyOfPanic faster versions of the respective boss music.]]

** So, you're saying Eggman wants to brainwash the universe into liking him? [[SpaceChannel5 Now, where have we seen something similar to that before?]]

* EveryTenThousandPoints: Averted for the first time in the series (except games with infinite lives, like the [[SonicStorybookSeries storybook games]]). Collecting 100 rings does not give you an extra life ([[ShadowTheHedgehog no, not even when you touch the checkpoints]]). However, getting an A-rank will give you a free life at the score tally screen, and an S-rank will give you three.

* LighterAndSofter: Its general presentation, [[DarkerAndEdgier especially in comparison to]] ''ShadowTheHedgehog'' and ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006''.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Averted like in ''SonicUnleashed'', as far as the Wii version is concerned; the only reoccurring characters in the game are Sonic, Tails, Yacker, Eggman, Orbot, and Cubot.

* ReverseCerebusSyndrome: After the likes of ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' and ''ShadowTheHedgehog'', Sega finally decided that "[[http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/24029 the franchise had begun to take itself too seriously and the story too profound]]".

** The top of the satellite holding all the planets together has what looks a ''lot'' like the [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2 Death]] [[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Egg]], or at least [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 the]] [[ShadowTheHedgehog ARK]].

->'''[[CivilianVillain Dr. Eggman]]:''' This amusement park was constructed entirely out of a sense of remorse for my past transgressions, and [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial is in no way associated with any sort of evil plot or premeditated misdeeds]].
->'''Sonic:''' Well, ''that's'' [[SarcasmMode a relief]].

* CastingGag: Not voice casting, but writer casting. At one point, Sonic says "Nobody said there'd be math", which was a RunningGag in ''VideoGame/{{MadWorld}}.'' Guess which writing team they brought on to make ''Colours''?



* DevelopmentGag: Aquarium Park is based on an ''old'' concept for a Japan-themed zone that originates from preproduction sketches of the original ''SonicTheHedgehog'' game.
** Ever wonder why there is a pool ball in the Sonic Simulator/Game Land stages? In the first, original ''Sonic'' game, Eggman's checker ball weapon was actually a stage obstacle in preproduction, and it did basically the same thing the pool ball does.
