** If that's not enough, FridgeHorror comes into play as Black Doom implies that he's been doing this for millennia, implying that he ignited the [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure Echidna]] [[VideoGame/SonicChronicles War]]. Adding onto the bit with Professor Gerald, he indirectly caused the ARK incident, which eventually led to Eggman's StartOfDarkness.

** At the end of the neutral mission in Cryptic Castle, a skeletal monster chases Shadow. All that's known about it is that it's underneath one of Eggman's bases, and Eggman has never seen it before.

* LoveItOrHateIt: While the game's tone and presentation is nigh-universally despised, the gameplay is polarizing instead. Some believe the game is perfectly playable, with level design promoting a mix of speed, platforming, and exploration as expected from the series and usable controls and gunplay. Others consider it as big a problem as the tone, with slippery controls retained from ''Heroes'', repetitive level design, tedious missions, and poor design issues such as being forced to kill enemies of the opposite alignment on certain routes.

** Perhaps the most notable thing about the game is that despite it not being part of the main series, it is unforgotten even to this day. Every Sonic fan knows of it, even if they haven't played it. One of the main plot complaints is how many loose ends it has left.



* {{Narm}}:
** Black Doom's voice is so ridiculously raspy and exaggeratedly evil (think [[WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget Claw]]), it is very hard to take him seriously. His name certainly doesn't help either.
** To be honest, just about anytime anyone anywhere in this game attempts to be dramatic qualifies as this. There's a reason why this writing staff was completely fired just one or two games later.
** A 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.]]

* NarmCharm: To many, the above mentioned examples, along with the fact that it's a completely toothless attempt at a DarkerAndEdgier Sonic game are what make it so memorable.
* OlderThanTheyThink: This was the game to introduce skydiving mechanics, not ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed''. This is also the first game to involve parkour-esque wall-running mechanics as an expansion on the Triangle Jump, not ''VideoGame/SonicLostWorld''. It also features a [[VideoGame/SonicUnleashed boost]] although in a different form, and you can only use it if you go the hero path.

* CompleteMonster: [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Black]] {{Doom|yDoomsOfDoom}} is [[BigBad the leader of the Black Arms]] and a [[KnightOfCerebus completely humorless]] EvilutionaryBiologist. First he helps Gerald Robotnik make an immortal creature out of his own DNA in return for the Chaos Emeralds. This is a trick, since he plans to gather the Chaos Emeralds to become [[AGodAmI godlike in power]], then just use humans ToServeMan, [[ImAHumanitairian ''if'' you know what I mean.]] He throws his own soldiers at the heroes of Mobius like tennis balls, and has no issues with [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness destroying his own son]] once the job is done, no matter whose side Shadow takes. He forces Shadow to relive Maria's death to manipulate him, and destroys an entire city with the Eclipse Cannon. He paralyzes Sonic and co, and billions more on the planet, to allow his offspring to eat them alive. [[{{Hypocrite}} Hypocritical]], ruthless and uncaring to even his own, Black Doom is [[VileVillainSaccharineShow among the worst]] the world of ''Sonic the Hedgehog'' has to offer, even today.

* CompleteMonster: [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Black]] {{Doom|yDoomsOfDoom}} is [[BigBad the leader of the Black Arms]] and a [[KnightOfCerebus completely humorless]] EvilutionaryBiologist. Having [[AliensAreBastards visited the Earth]] for thousands of years, he [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 made contact with Gerald Robotnik]] 50 years prior to the series, agreeing to a deal where a creation using Black Doom’s cells, the future Shadow the Hedgehog, would deliver the Chaos Emeralds so that the Black Arms can use Chaos Control to arrive on Earth and bring prosperity to humanity. Gerald realized once Doom left that he was lied to, as Black Doom intended to enslave the human race and use them as a [[ToServeMan food source]]. During the events of the game, he preaches about the [[KnightTemplar evils of humanity]] and how they don’t deserve to be free, claiming they would be better served as a [[ImAHumanitarian food source]] for the Black Arms, all while showing he has no regrets killing his own men or [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness throwing away his “son” when everything is finished]]. During the game, he sends his army to kill millions, manipulated Shadow by forcing him to relive Maria’s death, destroys an entire city--and most of his army--with the Eclipse Cannon, and spreads a gas that paralyzes Sonic and friends to make it easier for his offspring to eat them.
