1993's ''Sonic the Hedgehog CD'' (commonly abbreviated to just ''Sonic CD'') was one of the games that could be found on the [[UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis Sega CD]], an ambitious UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis add-on marred by its price tag and an over-saturation of "FMV games". This game introduced Amy Rose, Sonic's cute {{stalker with a crush}}, and fan favorite [[EvilKnockoff Metal]] [[TheDragon Sonic]]. It also had an {{anime}} opening and ending sequences with Sonic displaying his badassery; two of the few good-looking [=FMVs=] on the console.

* WarmUpBoss: Palmtree Panic's boss, the EGG-HVC-001, is a slow moving mini-mecha that can't even directly attack you; its only defense is two arms with easily dodgeable Bumpers attached, and otherwise its only "attack" is inflicting collision damage, and it loses an arm with two of the three hits it takes to mow it down, which can be easily done in less than 15 seconds--or if you want to be even quicker, you can just move right behind the boss and attack it directly from behind as soon as it lands (and it can't turn around to retaliate). On top of all that, due to an invincibility box at the beginning of the level, you can actually defeat the boss without being in any danger at all of being hurt. It's easier than ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2 Drill Eggman]]''.

* PrecociousCrush: A lot of fans forget that Amy was introduced as [[AllThereInTheManual eight years old]] -- the same age as Tails in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'' -- even though the two were on dating terms in her manga of origin. Some sources state she was aged up in her redesign to be a closer match as a result.

The setting of this adventure isn't Sonic's home world, but rather the small world in an odd orbit, Little Planet. For one month out of the entire year, it appears over the Never Lake. Little Planet is the home of seven miraculous Time Stones, which have been reported to cause wonders such as recovering the natural world by affecting the passage of time. To witness this phenomenon, Sonic came to Never Lake, but was shocked to find Little Planet in a metallic floating prison, chained to a mountain carved with the distinct face of [[BigBad Dr. Eggman]] ([[IHaveManyNames also known as Dr. Robotnik]]). The MadScientist seeks the Time Stones to rule over time itself and then TakeOverTheWorld, so it's up to Sonic and Sonic alone to set things right! Meanwhile, an energetic hedgehog girl calling herself Amy Rose follows her fortune and falls head over heels with the blue hedgehog, unaware that she may soon fall into the strong, cold arms of his newly-created metallic copy...

* BreakingTheFourthWall: As usual, Sonic gets impatient if he's {{idle|Animation}}. Wait three minutes without pausing, and then he'll say, [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere "I'm outta here!"]] and proceed to jump off the screen, netting you a GameOver regardless of how many lives you have left. He shoots you an angry glare the entire time. In the 2011 remake, Tails yawns at you as usual. However, he won't force the game to end after three minutes of idling.

* TheJuggernaut: Metal Sonic is completely invincible to Sonic's attacks thanks to an electrified force field he has, and his boost function allows him to effortlessly smash through obstacles Sonic has to work his way around. Sonic is only able to defeat him by using a combo of the closing goal gate of the race course they're on, with Robotnik's insta-kill laser finishing the job.
