At the beginning of the story, [[BigBad Dr. Ivo Robotnik]] (aka Eggman) has just gone mad (or maybe he already was) and is stuffing the tiny, innocent animals of South Island into his army of robots known as Badniks. Unfortunately for Robotnik, there's one problem. A problem that has blue fur, stands a little over three feet tall, is really quick on his feet, and possesses an "attitude" that will drive foes insane: Sonic the Hedgehog.

On a side note, this game received an [[ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehogPromoComic obscure tie-in comic]], which provides a very offbeat origin story for our spike haired hero.

On a side note, this game received an two obscure tie-in comics: a [[Manga/SonicTheHedgehogStoryComic three-part Japanese manga]] whose first volume is believed to [[AdaptationFirst predate]] the release of the game, as well as a [[ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehogPromoComic obscure tie-in comic]], one-shot American comic]] released months later which provides a very offbeat origin story for our spike haired hero.

* BossOnlyLevel: The final fight against Eggman is in a separate level from Scrap Brain Act 3 called the Final Zone, though it takes place in Act 2's terrain and is effectively the Eggman fight for the zone.

* DubNameChange: "Eggman" to "Ivo Robotnik" (or perhaps vice versa, as the Japanese version didn't exist until over a full month later), as well as just about all of the Badniks. The post-''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' explanation is that Eggman is his nickname or alias, while Robotnik is his actual surname (Ivo may or may not still be his first name, however).

* InCaseOfBossFightBreakGlass: The final Eggman bosses in both versions shields him in a glass/metal chute that you just need to jump into when you get a chance.

* NewJackSwing: Spring Yard Zone's BGM was heavily influenced by Music/BobbyBrown's "Every Little Step" and laid the groundwork for later Creator/SonicTeam games to feature more New Jack-inspired songs in their soundtracks.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Sampling}}: Most notably, Music/JanetJackson sampled Bridge Zone's BGM for her hit 1997 single, "Together Again".

Added DiffLines:

* ScareChord: If Sonic stays underwater for too long without catching a breath of air from a bubble, the music will suddenly shift to very tense music that will speed up rapidly towards a crescendo before Sonic dies. The drowning music has become ingrained in fans of the series to the point that most players will admit feeling a slight grip of panic upon hearing the music even if they haven't played the game in years.

It practically introduced super speed to the [[PlatformGame platforming genre]] with its eponymous character, which the designers took advantage of by adding obstacles such as loops and slopes. In addition to praise for its innovative gameplay, gamers were also astonished by the impressive graphics, as well as the catchy soundtrack by Masato Nakamura of the Japanese pop group Dreams Come True. ''Sonic the Hedgehog'' put the Genesis on the map and was a catalyst for the console dethroning the mighty Creator/{{Nintendo}} with a 65% market share over the SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem during the 16-bit consolewars.
