* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Not innuendo or violence, but religious. Like many Traveler's Tales games, the devs snook in a Christian reference. One of the buildings in Resort Island has a Ichthus on it.

** Eggrobo is essentially a clone of the already slow and hard to manoeuvre Dr. Robotnik, albeit lacking the ability to perpetually hover. He hovers for a brief amount of time before gradually grinding to a halt and sinking, which is more of a hindrance than just sinking by default.

The game is known for its power-pop soundtrack by Richard Jacques with songs performed by British singer TJ Davis. Like many CD-based games of the era,[[labelnote:]] Including all '90s-era iterations of ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogCD Sonic CD]]'' and the Saturn/PC port of ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3DFlickiesIsland 3D Blast]]''.[[/labelnote]], both the Saturn and PC versions can be played in any standard CD player, in case you wanted to listen to the music without having to play the actual game.

This game is notable for being [[EndOfAnAge the final game of Sonic's "Classic" Era]]. It is also the only fully-3D console game wholly featuring the original character designs.[[note]]''VideoGame/SonicJam'' and the Saturn version of ''Sonic 3D Blast'' only have small sections in 3D, and the UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame ''VideoGame/SonicTheFighters'' did not receive a Saturn port.[[/note]]

''Sonic R'' is a {{racing game}} staring [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog the spiky blue speed demon and his friends]], developed by Creator/TravellersTales (who also made ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3DFlickiesIsland Sonic 3D Blast]]'') and released in 1997 for the UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn and later for the PC (the PC version getting a unique feature in the form of seasonal effects). In 2005, it was re-released on the [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube GameCube]] and [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 PS2]] as part of ''[[CompilationRerelease Sonic Gems Collection]]'', which is based on the PC version of the game. It was also made available for download on [=GameTap=] for a short time in 2007.

* LethalJokeCharacter: Amy is this. She is one of the slowest characters in the game who lacks the ability to jump since she drives a car instead of running on her feet. Her lethality is her ability to drive over water without losing speed, decent acceleration and good turning (in a game that's notable for its ''bad'' turning), and a rechargeable Nitro Boost ability that allows her to reach a top speed faster then Super Sonic for a few seconds, but it does take away her superior steering ability when in use.
** Add on to this the fact that when a character goes into a loop or enters an extended falling state, their speed gets locked in unless they decelerate and you can use Amy's boost on the path leading up to a loop with it petering out just as she launches into it or launch yourself off of a big drop at the last moment(Most frequently found in Radical City) and effectively gain an extra 25-50% bonus of boost depending on the size of the loop or length of the drop while still allowing her to recharge since the boost technically ran out. Skilled abuse of this can effectively give Amy two and a half boosts in a row, all the speed she needs to leave her opponents in the dust.
