* NeverLiveItDown: This game forever tarnished Shadow's image among many players, making him remembered as a {{Wangst}}y, Franchise/{{Batman}}-wannabe, who was spat out by a marketing department trying too hard to make a FunnyAnimal character appear "extreme" and "edgy". ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' was already lambasted for bringing him back, but it really didn't do much with the character himself besides giving him amnesia. ''Shadow The Hedgehog'', on the other hand, amps up all the darker aspects of his personality and doesn't really do a good job at handling them, making for a character that is very easy to ridicule. This is still ongoing up to this day, even though Shadow has gone through lots of CharacterRerailment ever since.

** "Where's that ''damn'' fourth Chaos Emerald?" Many ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' players agree that the Chaos Emerald Special Stages [[DifficultySpike start getting significantly harder]] around the fourth Special Stage. In other words, many players are struggling with ''that damn fourth Chaos Emerald''.

** "Where's that ''damn'' fourth Chaos Emerald?" Many ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' players agree that the Chaos Emerald Special Stages [[DifficultySpike start getting significantly harder]] around the fourth Special Stage. In other words, many players are struggling with ''that damn fourth Chaos Emerald''. Oh and Shadow guards the fourth Emerald in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations''.



*** Fun fact: In ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'', [[FandomNod Shadow guards that damn fourth Chaos Emerald.]]



** The GUN Commander's MismatchedEyes, [[spoiler:especially in the flashbacks to when he was a child]], which is currently the page image for [[Narm/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic's Narm subpage]].
** Another particular moment is in the [[http://fat.gfycat.com/OldUnfitGalapagosalbatross.gif in-game intro]], where Shadow does a DramaticGunCock with an SMG... by [[GunsDoNotWorkThatWay pumping it like a shotgun.]]
** When you make a selection on the selection screen, the sound effect is a handgun firing.

]] As in he cocks the SMG's ''fixed handguard'' on the frontal barrel of the gun rather than the cocking handle, which was meant to be, yanno, cocked.
** When you make a selection on the selection screen, the sound effect is a stock sound of a handgun firing.



** "All Hail Shadow." Its an utterly shameless, over-the-top BraggingThemeTune sung by Magna-Fi (or Crush 40 in later games) right down to the goddamn title of the song that its easy to think its a parody of Shadow fans in general, yet its sung so [[SincerityMode sincerely and unironically]] that you can't help but love it anyway.

* SoBadItsGood: The general opinion about the DarkerAndEdgier nature of the game. Many players have fun with the forced "mature" elements the game provides, such as the out-of-place swearing, the shotgun sounds in the menus, Shadow's characterization and so on.
