** Shadow's line "Is that what Chaos Control is?" after his fight with The Biolizard has caused many fans to scratch their heads - why would Shadow not know what Chaos Control is? Turns out it was a mistranslation, and in the original Japanese, he just said "Was that Chaos Control?", i.e. "Did it just use Chaos Control?"



* CallBack: Eggman trying to steal the Master Emerald is reminiscent of how he stole it in ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'', even down to using the same machine to do it.
** The waterslide segment at the end of Sonic's part of Cannon's Core recalls the waterslide from Lost World in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure''. The Mystic Melody shrines and the platforms they sometimes create are also reminiscent of Lost World architecture.
** Sonic runs down a building in City Escape, just like he did in Speed Highway in the previous game.
** Shadow's first level, Radical Highway, is basically a CallBack to Speed Highway itself.
** Tails is mentioned to have been awarded a Chaos Emerald for saving Station Square, referencing Tails's ending in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure''.
** Sonic learning how to do Chaos Control by watching Shadow do it is reminiscent of Tails learning how to do the Spin Dash by watching Sonic do it.



* MythologyGag: The Egg Golem first appeared as the boss of Sandopolis Zone in '''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles''.

** Knuckles' last line towards Rouge from within their first confrontation:
--> '''Knuckles''': Yeah, we'll see about that [[Comicbook/{{Batgirl}} bat girl]].

The game was re-released for the UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube several months after the Dreamcast version as ''Sonic Adventure 2: Battle'' ([[SequelFirst before its predecessor's]] remake), which added more Chao stuff and gave 2-Player Mode a '''complete''' overhaul (which is probably where the "Battle" subtitle comes in). The [=GameCube=] port, which was the first ''Sonic'' game on a Nintendo home comsole.

** [[spoiler:Sonic's DisneyDeath at the near-end of both the Hero and Dark stories]] are notable in that, while filled with [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt like-you-would-really-do-it]], the game seems to be pretty [[Pun dead]] serious about it, despite the one involved being [[spoiler:the series' namesake]]. [[UpToEleven Even more so]] with the [[RashomonStyle version of the same scene]] seen in the Dark story, as there's literally ''no'' clue that [[spoiler:Sonic would survive]] ''despite'' NoOneCouldSurviveThat. (That is until [[spoiler:he]] showed up as the FinalBoss.)

* SecondHourSuperpower: Applies to certain upgrades that all of the characters receive early on, which grant abilities that become essential game mechanics throughout the rest of the game. It can be weird starting a new save file after playing on an old one for a while and realizing that these abilities aren't available from the very start of the game.
** Sonic and Shadow respectively each get the Light Dash shoes.
** Tails and Eggman get Hovering boosters.
** Knuckles and Rouge get digging tools.

* CopyAndPasteEnvironments: While there are numbers objects shared between multiple states, the two that truly stand out are Knuckles' level Wild Canyon and Rouge's level Dry Lagoon, which share the exactly same geometry, only having different textures.

* BlindIdiotTranslation: There's one thing that the translators consistently screwed up, and that was whether the word "emerald" is singular or plural. This is because Japanese nouns don't have plural forms, unlike English ones, requiring the translator to take note of the context to determine if a word is singular or plural. However, these translators didn't do that, leaving some characters to say "emerald" when they're referring to multiple chaos emeralds.
