** [[BadassPrincess Blaze the Cat]] also gets accused of being hit with this trope in the comics. This sentiment mostly stem from "Pirate Plunder Panic", where Blaze got [[DamselInDistress captured and had to be rescued from captivity]] ''twice'' and actually spent the entirety of one issue in a cage. However, fans also take issue with how Blaze commonly gets [[TapOnTheHead knocked unconscious]], usually by getting [[InTheBack caught off-guard from behind]].

It doesn't help that, compared with Silver, she is very underutilized.

** Some considered the whole ''Sonic Unleashed'' adaptation to be this. Other then introducing new Egg Commanders and giving some new backstories. Nothing remotely interesting was done with it. It's very by-the-numbers and even the whole drama of Werehog Sonic is quickly glossed over (Eggman doesn't even comment on it in the final battle) and is just used as an extended power-up at best. Some speculate that the staff were feeling stymied by all the restrictions and were trying to rush through it so they can get back to original stories.

It's very by-the-numbers by-the-numbers, doesn't expand or focuses on Chip's role at all, and even the whole drama of Werehog Sonic is quickly glossed over (Eggman doesn't even comment on it in the final battle) and is just used as an extended power-up at best. Some speculate that the staff were feeling stymied by all the newfound restrictions SEGA placed on them and were trying to rush through it so they can get back to original stories.

* TheWoobie: Post shattered world, it's really hard not to feel for the nobler members of the Egg Bosses, namely Nephthys and Clove, who are just doing their damnedest trying to stake out an existence of ''some'' dignity under Eggman. Clove is effectively a case study in a BrokenBird as she breaks.

* HilariousInHindsight: The images of Knuckles turning into Super Knuckles in issue 141 are similar to the final boss transformation montage in ''[[VideoGame/MegaManZero Mega Man Zero 2]]''. While they haven't gotten to that point, ArchieComics now publishes ''ComicBook/MegaMan'' comics.

** When it comes to individual characters, "Sonic Universe 50" and "Sonic the Hedgehog 256" are deliberate saving throws in regards to [[EvilDoppelganger Metal]] [[TheDragon Sonic]] since they both address the character’s AdaptationalWimp status in the comic (which was becoming a very loud criticism up to that point), with SU 50 giving Metal a rematch against Shard (who effortlessly destroyed Metal previously) and effectively winning, albeit by [[TakingYouWithMe self-destructing]], and 256 had Metal Sonic fighting against Amy, Cream, and Sally (all three being formidable [[ActionGirl Action Girls]] in their own ways) at once without damage and was only defeated after Tails dropped a missile on him, which even then only destroyed his legs and the rest of Metal was perfectly intact.
** “Sonic the Hedgehog 267” and “Sonic the Hedgehog 283” seemed to be attempted saving throws for [[KidHero Cream the Rabbit]], who has been woefully underutilized throughout the comic and rarely shown taking action or overall contributing (even after the Reboot has her become a Freedom Fighter, although that’s “justified” by [[CreatorsPet Sally]] constantly commanding Cream to stay out of missions and battles), with 267 having Cream [[BigDamnHeroes leading the rescue for the rest of the Freedom Fighters from a death trap]] and 283’s solicitations labeling Cream as the “central hero” for the story. But whether either or both issues actually succeeded is debated since Cream didn’t receive any acknowledgement for her effort in 267, and [[IgnoredEpiphany continued being sidelined by Sally afterwards]], and while 283 gave Cream a bit more focus, her actual role was to merely deliver the [[McGuffin McGuffins]] to a vault (or rather accompany Big the Cat, who has been rather heavily utilized thus far, as ''he'' makes the delivery). However, “Sonic the Hedgehog 285” can be considered a big step in the right direction if not an AuthorsSavingThrow as that issue has Cream finally demonstrate her BadassAdorable side by stomping on the head of [[TheBrute Bark]] [[TheVoiceless the]] [[SuperStrength Polar]] [[BearsAreBadNews Bear]] and forcing the enemy to retreat, and then after attempting to give chase Cream goes on to personally destroy the Badniks attacking the city.
