* {{Mondegreen}}: It's very easy to mishear the lyrics of the second game's boss theme as "We got fucked again." (You can [[CantUnhearIt thank]] LetsPlay/HellfireCommentaries for that one)

* EpilepticTrees: Thanks to ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' introducing a completely different backstory for Blaze, several theories attempting to reconcile the two were born. A somewhat popular theory is that Blaze's world is [[spoiler:the world she sealed herself in at the end of Silver's story]], though this [[VoodooShark raises further questions]] (such as [[spoiler:how exactly she came to be a princess and guardian of the Sol Emeralds upon arriving, or why the CosmicRetcon didn't affect her despite it logically negating her dimension jump]]). Another popular idea is that her world is actually an alternate future, in the same vein as the split timeline in ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda''. WordOfGod buzzsawed many of these when Takashi Iizuka clarified that Blaze was from another dimension, and not the future.

* ScrappyMechanic: ** The rockets in Dead Line in ''Rush''. They move really fast, but handle really lousy and get destroyed upon touching a wall. Merely tapping the control pad can send it at a very wide angle. And there's one section where you actually have to use it ''to get over a bottomless pit''.

** A relatively minor one, but the springy ropes in Haunted Ship in ''Rush Adventure'' contribute to it being a potential ThatOneLevel for the game. On its own, they wouldn't be too different from ordinary springs, but what makes them annoying is that once they spring you up, they immediately cancel your boost, meaning you can't just maintain it by just holding the boost button down like a normal spring. And enemies are sometimes located near these ropes, which particularly gives Sonic a hard time since his R tricks gain less height and distance than Blaze's.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation - Actually Marine has an inferiority complex and knows the other characters think little of her, so she acts proud and arrogant in order to appear tough and confident, because she's desperate to prove to herself and others that she's useful, ironically she'd be much more useful if she [[BeYourself just acted normally.]]

* BadassDecay: Sadly, yes. ''Sonic Rush'' ultimately destroyed Knuckles's potentials, removing all his competence and making him look like a joke.



* ThatOneLevel: Again there are a few candidates, but the stand-out example is probably Altitude Limit from ''Sonic Rush'', with its insta-kill lasers and tricky gimmicks, and quite a long run before reaching the first checkpoint. Night Carnival isn't quite as bad, but it gets bonus points by being the first level in Blaze's story (so you've got no chance to go back to earlier levels and grind lives, as you can with Sonic).

* TheScrappy: Marine for some. In fact, she even annoys the other three heroes by constantly reminding them that she's ship captain, and also for her 'get the treasure first, ask questions later' personality which often leads the four into trouble. Her horribly overplayed Australian accent in the dub doesn't help either. This results in Blaze [[TakeThatScrappy telling her exactly why she can't come to the final zone with them]].

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The main motif heard in "Back 2 Back" is notably similar to The Kingsmen's "Louie Louie."

** As seen [[https://www.derpibooru.org/298674?scope=scpe882b2bfcde0d1737ce5dd15d8f3a6ce6ac1f6d88 here]], the plot of ''Sonic Rush'' is nearly identical to that of the two-part pilot of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''.

** Sonic and Blaze's boosting duel at the end of their [[DuelingPlayerCharacters boss fight]] is very similar to a famous [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiEwmiPSmto moment]] in the [[Anime/SonicTheHedgehogTheMovie Sonic OVA]].

** Additionally, [[spoiler:Mike Pollock, who voices both Eggmen, appears in the credits after defeating the Egg Titan, yet you've encountered no character who is voiced by him at this point.]]

** There's also the twist that Johnny was working for Captain Whisker, which players would've guessed upon noticing that he and Whisker have the exact same [[SkeletonMotif pirate symbol]] on them.
