* AntiFrustrationFeatures: ''An Ordinary Sonic 1 ROM Hack'' allows monitors to respawn. The reason for this is so that Sonic will always have a way to temporary return his world to normal and prevent Sonic.exe from killing him. There are also more monitors in general in the hack compared to the original ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog1 Sonic 1]]'', including in the fights with Eggman, because the author said that the game would've been UnwinnableByDesign otherwise, but he also stated that the additional amount that was put in wouldn't end up making the hack "too easy".

** Once you enter the goal area in the normal world or defeat Eggman in the third act, the game won't switch to the DarkWorld in order to prevent a KaizoTrap from occuring.

The first sign that something is horribly wrong with this version of Sonic.Sonic.
** This is also true of the Badniks/Eggman/Robotnik in ''An Ordinary Sonic ROM Hack''. Whenever you enter X's world, all the enemies and Eggman have their eyes replaced with dark eyes and red pupils (much like Robotnik in ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM''), and they are invincible in this realm.

* CheckPointStarvation: ''An Ordinary Sonic 1 ROM Hack''. At first it's [[AvertedTrope averted]] in the normal world, where all of the checkpoints keep their original spots. It is then played very straight in the DarkWorld. This means that [[HopeSpot you could be closing in on one of them]] [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption only for the game to warp you to the Dark World, causing it to vanish]], and instead have you risk starting the whole act over again should you die from anything there.

* LuckBasedMission: ''An Ordinary Sonic 1 ROM Hack'' as a whole. When a level begins, it takes 12 seconds and a half for the level to warp to X's world. After you escape once, the timing of subsequent warps is random. This can lead to unwinnable situations as levels are only beatable in their normal version.

On the other hand, entering the goal area in the real level will knock X out and allow you to finish).



* OneHitPointWonder: The DarkWorld is designed to turn you into this. Grabbing rings in it actually depletes your ring counter. This, combined with the invincible enemies and the ever looming threat of X trying to kill you, makes the gameplay a lot more challenging.

Defeating Eggman also means X will not try to get you before you move on to the Egg Prison capsule.

''Sonic.exe'' originated as a {{Creepypasta}} by JC the Hyena seen [[http://trollpasta.wikia.com/wiki/Sonic.exe here]] concerning a man named Tom who receives a bizarre CD in the mail from his friend Kyle, who hasn't heard from in a while. [[GenreBlindness Disregarding Kyle's note telling him to destroy the CD]], Tom plays it and is disturbed by the title screen showing Sonic with [[RedEyesTakeWarning bleeding red eyes]] [[BlackEyesOfEvil with black sclera]]. As he plays the game further, Tom bears witness to just how monstrous this incarnation of the blue hedgehog really is.
