Added DiffLines:

** The camera in this game moves ahead to show the level ahead of Sonic, while the other games had Sonic centred at all times.

** The speed shoes item, rather than speeding up the music, has its own theme (likely because speeding up music and having it not sound like a skippy mess was not possible with early 90's consumer hardware).

* OurFounder: The statues of Eggman at [[EasterEgg Wacky Workbench]] and Stardust Speedway (Present and Bad Future), and the image on the mountain that appears in the opening.[[note]]Unfortunately, the close-up of the mountain tends to be cut in the re-releases.[[/NOTE]]

Added DiffLines:

* OddballInTheSeries: This game feels a little unusual compared to other main 16-bit ''Sonic'' games, even disregarding the time travel gimmick and the use of CD-quality audio:
** Sonic's jump sound is significantly different.
** While there is a spindash available, it doesn't use the typical spindash animation; Sonic just goes into his rolling animation.
** In addition to the spindash, there is a Super Peel-Out move that grants a similar boost but without sending Sonic into a roll.
** What other games in the series call "Zones", this game calls "Rounds". "Zone" in this game is used to what other games call an "Act".
** The time counter is in the format of ''(minutes)'' ' ''(seconds)'' " ''(hundreths of a second)'', rather than ''minutes'' : ''seconds'' like in the Genesis games.
** Special Stages reward Time Stones rather than the traditional Chaos Emeralds.
** Said Time Stones are not required for the GoldenEnding (getting a Good Future in every Zone will also work).

''Sonic CD'' was the first main post-''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog1 Sonic 1]]'' game to enter development. Given that fact and the proto-''Sonic 2'' features, ''CD'' is often theorized to be [[{{interquel}} an in-between game]] that follows the events of the first game but takes place before the second.[[note]]WordOfGod has stated that while it's canon, the game has no particular spot on the timeline, although it takes place sometime before ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog4''.[[/note]] In spite of the similarities to the first game, ''Sonic CD'' is considered by many to be the best game created for Sega CD; many say it's the best Sonic title overall. Some go so far as to claim it is the best and most innovative single game ever released for any particular platform. Many believe it could've been even more popular if the Sega CD itself hadn't been such a failure.
