** It had a Death Egg II before ''VideoGame/SonicTheFighters'' and VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog4 came out. Though this one was mostly identical to the original one, and was created due to the original Death Egg being shown getting destroyed prior to the VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles adaptation, thus necessitating the introduction of a second one.

*** Said portrayal also precedes ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'', [[Anime/SonicTheHedgehogTheMovie the OVA]], ''Sonic X'' and Archie in depicting Knuckles with a serious and tough personality.

** In this continuity, Robotnik successfully takes over the world by sending Sonic into the future, allowing him to conquer Mobius in Sonic's absence. Come ''VideoGame/SonicForces'' in 2017 where the plot involves Eggman displacing Classic Sonic by sending him into the future, allowing him to successfully take over the world in his absence.

** There were several examples in the non-Sonic stories as well. From the ''EternalChampions'' strips there was Xavier's frequent battle cries warning his foes to fear "the power of magick!" only for it to [[InformedAbility very rarely work]].

* JerkSue: Sonic, according to WordOfGod- Nigel Kitching has stated in-interview that Sonic being mean to Tails and getting away with it was very much his intention.

** The ExecutiveMeddling that led to Amy morphing from girly-girl to tomboy was unpopular with Nigel Kitching and just as unpopular with fans. It wasn't just the idea itself (which makes for the first split between people who liked the new Amy vs people that preferred the old one) but also the role model-seeking reasoning behind it as she wasn't allowed to be as flawed as the male characters, thus often making her come off as rather flat and boring. Nigel Kitching was so annoyed with the change in fact that he deliberately stopped using her in his stories until the woman that made the decision (Deborah Tate) was replaced with someone else. The resultant stories by Lew Stringer (who agreed with Tate) where she tours time and space fighting evil is perhaps where the bulk of this opinion comes from as their quality varies from good to awful depending on who you ask. Many fans love Amy's ActionGirl behavior and her toned-down personality, while many others find her pretty flat and boring.

* FanPreferredCouple: Both Tekno and Johnny are more common love interests for Amy than Sonic. Amy likewise for Tekno, who is supposed to be paired with Shorty.

* PopularWithFurries: Being an incarnation of Sonic, Super Sonic was destined for this from the get go. His villainous personality makes him popular with furry ''Sonic'' fans, most who haven't even read the comic.

In the continuation, Robotnik is locked away for the safety of Mobius, only for Dr. Zachary to free him. In the Archie comic, Snively locks Robotnik away for his own sanity and to heal his insanity, only for Robotnik to break out himself by accident, and be reinprisoned later on.

** Amy and [[WesternAnimation/SonicBoom Boom Amy]] are compared sometimes due to them being similar enough {{Alternative Character Interpretation}}s of Amy as even more of an ActionGirl than she normally is.
* CultClassic: It has fallen into obscurity (compared to other adaptations) post-cancelation due to being region specific and having [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes no rereleases]] however it still has a devoted fanbase.

* FanonDiscontinuity:
** ''STC'' had its fair amount of bad strips that fans would rather forget, such as Bravehog, The Trickster and Amy's Secret Past. Ironically, "Bravehog" and "Amy's Secret Past" also contradicted each other: Amy's Secret Past was an attempt to explain why she has similar slicked-together spikes as Sonic despite not having superspeed (him having obtained them during the accident which gave him this) while Bravehog showed all the hedgehogs in the past looking like Sonic.

** Amy's fangirling of Sonic being heavily toned down also appears in her ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' incarnation.



* ValuesDissonance: Much of the dislike for Fleetway's characterization of ''Sonic '' comes from America, which prefers flawed yet still largely clean-cut heroes. Archie's Sonic very much follows this characterization.
