** Even moreso considering [[spoiler:the nature of the game as a sequel to the events of ''Colors''; direct continuity is something rarely seen in more recent Sonic titles, so having it established and directly referred to ''in a game all about Sonic's history'' is a notable achievement on Sonic Team's part.]]
** The preferred name or moniker for Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik can be thrown into confusion when [[spoiler:Classic]] Eggman states no one calls him by his real name anymore. In the International version of ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'', Sonic and friends initially prefer to negatively call him Eggman, while he insisted on being called Robotnik -- however, this characterization doesn't exist in the Japanese version or any other game (at least in the sense of Eggman being an insult).

* CoolBoard: Classic Sonic has a skateboard, in true early 90's fashion. Modern Sonic uses a snowboard in City Escape, just like old times, as well as in a mission in Rooftop Run.

* {{Flanderization}}: The truck in City Escape. Although in ''Sonic Adventure 2'', the main purpose of the truck was probably to catch Sonic despite collateral damage. In ''Generations'', it basically wants to kill and maim Sonic [[ConvenientlyEmptyBuilding without any care for its surroundings]] (Because why on earth would a truck need [[spoiler:''three buzzsaws, rocket jets'', and the ability to ''drive on the side of a freaking building'']]?).



* FollowTheMoney: Naturally, especially evident when rings appear after hitting a switch.



* {{Foreshadowing}}: After the cutscene in which Vector is freed, [[spoiler:his text bubble correctly predicts the nature of the [[BigBad Time Eater]]]].
** [[FridgeBrilliance Well, he IS a detective, after all.]]
** Compared to Eggman's begging for help when he's captured after the Death Egg fight, Eggman has no objections when the Time Eater grabs him after the Egg Dragoon battle and it takes place in a fraction of the time as the first. [[spoiler:With the revelation that the Time Eater is controlled by the two Eggmen, one can see that the first fight was deliberately thrown and that the second was actually a rescue.]]

* MovingTheGoalposts: [[spoiler:In Crisis City Classic, the [[FanNickname Trollnado]] literally does this, moving the goalpost to a later part of the level, forcing Sonic to chase it.]]

** In the 3DS version, provided the player has at least 5 3DS coins,they can unlock mission 100 without ever starting the Story Mode. Said mission is to beat the final boss under a rather forgiving time limit.
