** With the announcement of both ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' and ''VideoGame/SonicForces'', This is likely to be Jossed since the latter's announcement trailer clearly shows Classic Sonic returning to help his Modern counterpart once again. This [[https://www.sonicstadium.org/2016/10/sega-project-sonic-2017-will-introduce-a-new-character-and-a-new-gameplay-component/ article]] however, will introduce a third character. So maybe we'll at least relive the nostolgia of the last 2 ''Adventure'' games(or other games to be precise).

They're just covered by fur, making their feet look toe-less. This is why the characters are shown having toe bones when they get electrocuted in the All-Stars Racing series. Presumably, their fingers would likewise be covered by fur if they were smaller and the characters didn't wear gloves.

One common fan belief is that the 8-bit Sonic tetralogy (Sonic 1 8bit, Sonic 2 8bit, Sonic & Tails/Chaos, Sonic & Tails 2/Triple Trouble) is a separate continuity from the main one. This have been implied by the stories in the game manuals, such as the story of Sonic 2 8bit seemingly being incompatible with the main timeline (Sonic and Tails already know each other so it can't take place before the 16bit game, but no Sonic game can come between Sonic 2 and Sonic 3, and there's also mention of Tails being in South Island), or the manual of Sonic & Tails 2 stating that Sonic and Knuckles had never met before, or the fact that there are only 6 Chaos Emeralds in each of the tetralogy's game. However, the 16-bit and 8-bit versions of Sonic 1 have the same story and are mostly the same game, so it's fair to call this a split timeline: Sonic 1 started it all, then it branched into the main timeline, and the 8bit timeline.

One common fan belief is that the 8-bit Sonic tetralogy (Sonic 1 8bit, Sonic 2 8bit, Sonic & Tails/Chaos, Sonic & Tails 2/Triple Trouble) is a separate continuity from the main one. This have has been implied many times by the stories included in the game manuals, such as the story of Sonic 2 8bit seemingly being incompatible with the main timeline (Sonic and Tails already know each other so it can't take place before the 16bit game, but no Sonic game can come between Sonic 2 and Sonic 3, and there's also mention of Tails being in South Island), or the manual of Sonic & Tails 2 stating that Sonic and Knuckles had never met before, before (thereby treating that game as the first time the two met), or the fact that there are only 6 Chaos Emeralds in each of the tetralogy's game.games. However, the 16-bit and 8-bit versions of Sonic 1 have the same story and are mostly the same game, so it's fair to call this a split timeline: Sonic 1 started it all, then it branched into the main timeline, and the 8bit timeline.



* Sonic the Fighters: First, if you subscribe to the belief that the 8bit tetralogy is a separate timeline, then that means that Fang/Nack is a character exclusive to this timeline. He's in Sonic the Fighters, so the game has be part of this timeline. Second, this game has 8 Chaos Emeralds, which makes no sense going by the main canon. However, the split of one of the emeralds into 5 new ones in Sonic Blast may explain why this game has over 7 emeralds. By this point, there are 10 emeralds in this timeline, but since Tails' rocket requires only 8, that's the number the player collects. Third, the Death Egg II doesn't seem to fit in the main canon when you take into account Sonic 4's Death Egg mk II. However, it still fits in the side timeline, if you take into account the Death Egg you can see sinking into the sea in the ending of Sonic Blast. That would be the Death Egg I of this timeline. And fourth, once again, this Knuckles doesn't seem to be the guardian of the Master Emerald.
* Tails' Adventure: Going by the game's manual, it takes place before Tails met Sonic. However, this seems to contradict the Sonic 2 manual's prologue, which states that Tails lived in Westside Island (rather than Cocoa Island) before meeting Sonic, and seems to imply that he never had any adventures of his own prior to said meeting. However, that prologue isn't mentioned anywhere in the manual of the 8-bit version of Sonic 2, which has a different story from the 16-bit version, so this game fits much better in this timeline.
* Sonic Pocket Adventure: It's hard to fit this game in the main timeline, since its levels and story are mashups of Sonic 2 16bit and Sonic 3 & Knuckles. However, it fits in this timeline, where these games aren't canon. Also, this game's Knuckles seems to be the guardian/owner of a regular Chaos Emerald, rather than the Master Emerald. Since he's one of the two main characters of Sonic Blast, which is where the emerald split happened, he may have decided to take the task of guarding one of the new emeralds right after that game's story ended. This would be the emerald he has in Sonic the Fighters, the one you must fight him to get.
* Another detail is that the only games in this timeline to have over 6 emeralds and feature Super Sonic are the last two ones. This is explained by the splitting of the emerald in Sonic Blast. Since there was less than 7 emeralds in this continuity prior to that event, Sonic couldn't go Super until after Sonic Blast.
* You could also easily fit Sonic Labyrinth, Tails Sky Patrol, Sonic 3D Blast and Sonic R in this canon (as long as you place the latter two after Sonic Blast). These four games certainly fit better here than in the main timeline, as the first two are 8bit, and the latter two seem to feature non-guardian Knuckles. However, I didn't bother mentioning them because they're not that relevant to this timeline's continuity.

Emerald. And fifth, it explains why Espio is seen alone in this game despite being always with the Chaotix in every other appearance: the Chaotix never made an appearance in this timeline, so the group probably doesn't exist in this continuity, which is why Espio is on his own here.

Blast. As a fun detail, Super Sonic makes a cameo appearance in Sonic Blast in the goal signposts. This is his first appearance in the 8-bit games, and may be a nod to the fact that this game made Super Sonic possible in this continuity at last, in addition to foreshadowing Super Sonic's future appearances in the later games in this timeline.

** Said instalment could be a sequel to Sonic Generations. With the Eggmen stuck in the White Void and [[EldritchAbomination the Time Eater]], it would be the perfect opportunity for Mephiles to take the helm.

* Both are Jossed; the 25th anniversary will have ''VideoGame/SonicMania''(a retro Sonic title for Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC) and ''VideoGame/ProjectSonic2017''(a mainstream Sonic game with Classic Sonic returning, also on the same consoles as the former game).

** Actually, what probably happens in the good ending is that the emeralds "purify" the area and cause flowers to quickly grow. This is especially obvious in the 8-bit version, where the emeralds get rid of the pollution brought by Eggman. Where did the emeralds go, then? Probably the dimension the special stages take place on, hence Sonic must re-visit the special stages and re-collect them in Sonic 2.
