* OneHitPointWonder: Averted, he loses rings proportional to his ring count when he gets hit in this game, with 20 rings being the minimum amount lost. The Wii/[=PS2=] version drops you to the previous level instead (60, 30, or 0 rings, if you had 90+, 60-90, and 30-60 respectively).

* HelpfulMook: The Dark Bat enemies, which are harmless and give the Werehog something to hang on to. There are other variations, which follow [[GoddamnedBats another trope entirely]]. Then there are also fan enemies which can be used to kill enemies or solve a few simple puzzles.
** Whenever a Thunder Ball shows up next to water, chances are the game's telling to toss it into water ForMassiveDamage.

Leaked and then officially announced in early 2008, ''Sonic Unleashed'' was hoped to be the game that would stab a jolt of life into the stagnated ''Franchise/{{Sonic|The Hedgehog}}'' franchise, which suffered from hitting the PolygonCeiling hard and had most recently put out the widely-criticized 2006 ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Sonic the Hedgehog]]'' game. Thus, when the Werehog was subsequently leaked and then revealed, InternetBackdraft immediately ensued, with many fans and even professional sites basically screaming "WHAT THE EFF, SONIC TEAM". This carried over to [[ReviewsAreTheGospel many professional reviewers' opinions]], some of whom [[EightPointEight gave the game even lower scores than its widely-panned predecessor.]] In contrast, the fans' general opinion is that Sonic's levels are much more along the lines of what a current-generation ''Sonic'' game should be like; you'd be hard-pressed to find such an opinion on the Werehog.

[[BigBad Mad scientist]] Dr. Eggman has a new plan to TakeOverTheWorld: using the Chaos Emeralds to release a titanic abomination called Dark Gaia [[SealedEvilInACan from its imprisonment]], then building his new empire on the ensuing ruins.

** Heck, even the Wii/[=PS2=] version's quite a sight to see, particularly the Gaia Gates.

** The final unlockable video (at least in the [=PS2=]/Wii version) is clearly based on a scene from [[spoiler: WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda.]]
** Also, the final battle in the Wii version appears to have a homage to [[spoiler:VideoGame/PunchOut]]

* FundamentallyFunnyFruit: The Dureek food item. Which are obviously the Sonic world equivalent of the Durian fruit. The inventory even describes them as the "King of fruits" and in a reference to their inspiration's [[LoveItOrHateIt love it or hate it]] reputation in the real world, also suggests that you "try it and see". Chip can't make up his mind about how he feels about them after being fed one but Sonic seems to absolutely love them going by the extremely high EXP value he gains from ''just one''.
