* HarsherInHindsight: If one were to think that the Sonic characters remotely remember ''[[VideoGames/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Sonic 06]]'', the scene where we see Rouge as the rival of ''Winter'' kinda yanks your heartstrings a little. We see Rouge against Shadow here, when in ''06'', she said she wouldn't betray him. What's more, Shadow is the one that calls her out on it. Weather you see them as PlatonicLifePartners or as romantically involved, this is quite disturbing.

Unexpected Character is not a YMMV trope.

* ScrappyMechanic: Characters being limited to certain events in the handheld versions, a trend that began with London and is continuing with Rio.

It says quite clearly on the page for And The Fandom Rejoiced not to link to it. It is for in-universe examples and links from the descriptions at the beginning of related trope pages only.
* WinBackTheCrowd: After Sochi's lukewarm reception, Rio seems to be attempting this by returning to having both a console and a handheld version, as '''doubling''' the character roster with new additions and the [[TheBusCameBack re-introduction]] of [[UnexpectedCharacter previously obscure characters]]. So far, [[AndTheFandomRejoiced it seems to be working]].

I believe it was confirmed that the Zeti are playable.
*** Similarly, Zazz from SonicLostWorld. Though, it's unconfirmed if he's playable or just a rival.

* DorkAge[=/=]{{Sequelitis}}: The ''Sochi 2014'' game. Coming hot off the heels of the [[GrowingTheBeard Beard-Growing]] ''Vancouver'' and ''London'' games, ''Sochi 2014'' had big shoes to fill and had the unfortunate timing of being the first M&S game to be released on the new Wii U. Sochi also had no second handheld edition on 3DS (meaning no Story campaign, despite London 2012 having one), Dream Events (The staple of the Mario & Sonic series) were signifcantly cut (Vancouver 2010 and London 2012 had ''eleven'' and ''ten'' Dream Events respectively, while Sochi only has ''eight'') and had some pared down single player features that were done better in ''Vancouver''(Festival Mode) and ''London''(London Party). While not considered a bad game, ''Sochi 2014'' is definitely considered a step back in the series. Time will tell if the series rebounds with ''Rio 2016'', which is expanding the character roster and is back to having a second 3DS version.

** Sticks the Badger who previously only appeared in SonicBoom which is an alternate continuity of the Sonic Series is another character that hardly anyone expected.
