* FakeDifficulty: The game suffers in a few places from cagey controls and awkward physics. Take the special stage Emerald Challenges, where you must race and overtake the Chaos Emerald at high speed while navigating through a scattered mines -- a difficult enough concept even if you didn't have to worry about the controls wigging out as you race along the walls, cutting your speed at the most awkward times.

** In the scene where Team Dark defeats Eggman at Rail Canyon, because of their [[spoiler:finding a destroyed Shadow Android, and later a large collection of Shadow Androids in stasis]], people had been speculating that [[spoiler:the Shadow they discovered in the beginning of the game may have been a robot]].

** Prior to Team Dark's first boss battle, after Omega threatens Eggman, Eggman remarks, "You must be Omega..." Even if he had abandoned him, it seems odd for Eggman not to recognize his own creation. [[spoiler:That's because it's really Metal Sonic masquerading as Eggman]].

* 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.]]

* AIIsACrapshoot: [[spoiler:Metal Sonic, the real villain of the game, has gained a personality over the years, and was disillusioned by never being able to fulfill his purpose of defeating Sonic; in a surprisingly astute move, he mutinies by locking up Eggman, taking over his empire, and impersonating him, as well as secretly copying the data of the heroes to become all-powerful. However, its clear that he's not only a cold-blooded egotist, but also literally insane, as he believes ''he'' is the real Sonic, and ''Sonic'' is his "loathsome copy!"]]

** Another rather egregious example is in the final level, when you press a self destruct switch to detonate the ship you are currently on, Tails will say "Wonder why it self destructed?" when in the original Japanese script, he said [[LampshadeHanging "Why did he put a self destruct switch there?"]]
* BlowYouAway: Speed characters have access to the Tornado Jump, which flips enemies over and can be used to climb poles and activate propellers.
** Once they hit max level though, they [[SoLastSeason can eschew using Tornado Jump entirely]] in favor of just using Homing Attack, as it gains Tornado properties at level 3.

** Team Dark and Team Chaotix fight when Rouge accuses the Chaotix of being after Eggman's treasure on the basis of them looking like "creeps." Chaotix in turn think Team Dark works for Eggman (which, to be fair, Shadow and Rouge did in ''Sonic Adventure 2'' and Omega is an Eggman robot).
