After ten years of being CutShort, it seemed that [[http://www.bumbleking.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6519&start=30 the story would conclude]] in the [[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog Archie Sonic Comic's Sonic Universe]]. [[https://twitter.com/IanFlynnBKC/status/510281489292877824 Unfortunately, the project was officially cancelled]], though a summary of its events will appear in a collection of planned and scrapped stories.

* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: While there are exceptions, such as Argus's roboticized form, most roboticized Mobians don't look much different from their regular selves. Some even look almost completely Mobian except for cybernetic eyes or limbs.
** Robotnik also created a lifelike hedgehog baby as part of a plan to invade Sanctuary.

* UnwillingRoboticization:
** Similar to how it works in ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'', with one major difference being that most of the time, beings that undergo roboticization come out looking like cyborgs and not full-fledged robots. However, the minds of roboticized beings are still enslaved to Robotnik and this control can only be broken temporarily.
** Also, Robotnik used the roboticizer much more sparingly in this show, treating it more as a punishment for rebellion or failing to carry out his orders, rather than an umbrella treatment for all living creatures. Most people are not roboticized and Robotnik employs two unroboticized bounty hunters who are threatened several times with the treatment but are never actually subjected to it.
