** Inverted with Team Rose stages, being designed for novice players. They are shorter versions of Team Sonic stages with less enemies and traps and weaker bosses. In addition, Team Rose has a PurposefullyOverpowered Team Blast. However, Team Rose is slightly slower than the other teams, making the later Special Stages nigh-impossible to complete with them.

* PurposefullyOverpowered: Team Rose's Team Blast, to make their gameplay even more beginner-friendly. In addition to destroying all nearby enemies (like all Team Blasts), it levels up all three characters and gives them a shield and an invincibility power-up.

* FakeLongevity: In order to unlock the Last Story, you must complete each Team's individual story, which is standard enough and has been Sonic Team's standby since ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure''. The problem is that each different story consists of four almost-identical playthroughs of the same 14 levels and 7 bosses, with the main differences being different arrangements of enemies and "longer" stages that often amount to extended repetitions. (''e.g.'' In the Egg Fleet stage, Team Rose must merely reach Eggman's first battle ship, while Team Sonic must reach and destroy ''two'' battleships, Team Dark ''three'' and although Team Chaotix don't have to destory any battleships, they have to contend with their second and final StealthBasedMission that is explained below).

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: In a sense. During Team Dark's Chaos Inferno Team Blast, Shadow reaches into Omega's chassis and pulls out the green Chaos Emerald to perform [[TimeStandsStill Chaos Control]] (whether the Emerald served as a power source for Omega or the robot was simply safeguarding it is unknown, although, given subsequent games, the latter is more likely). However, you still have to collect that particular Emerald via the Special Stages (with any of the four teams). Later on, [[spoiler:during the Last Episode, where the teams reveal that they've been collecting all of the Chaos Emeralds separately, Omega is seen in possession of the green Emerald, implying that he still had it all along.]]
