* 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
* 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.

**[[TheEmperor Emperor Metallix]] is the supreme leader of the [[BrotherhoodOfEvil Brotherhood of Metallix]] and one of the comic's most significant early villains. [[AIIsACrapshoot Going rogue from his intended purpose]] as one of Robotnik's drones, Emperor Metallix begins a crusade to [[OmnicidalManiac wipe out all life from Mobius]] and replace it all with machinery. To this end, Metallix forcibly duplicates the Omni-viewer, callously ordering his double agent Nack the Weasel killed when he sells out the Chaotix before trying to terminate the Chaotix themselves. Metallix later drives a crusade to roboticize the Miracle Planet--enlisting Grimer's unwilling help and later threatening to kill Grimer before Sonic's eyes--and, succeeding at that, alters history so that Robotnik never comes into being and Emperor Metallix leads a successful assault on Mobius that leads to the death of most of the planet's organic life and the few survivors relegated underground. Emperor Metallix has no compunction brutally killing whatever stands in the way to it and its own victory, and even Dr. Robotnik rightfully fears and dreads what [[TheDreaded Emperor Metallix]] is capable of.

* CompleteMonster: [[MadScientist Dr.]] [[EvilAlbino Zachary]], Knuckles's ArchEnemy, is introduced as a seemingly harmless old man and one of the last of the echidnas. Zachary tricked Knuckles into leading him into the Emerald Chamber, whereupon he shattered the Master Emerald and used the Chaos Emeralds to empower a reprogrammed machine of his. Zachary gleefully allowed the inhabited floating island to fall onto Mobius as a "monument to his genius", [[OmnicidalManiac intending to butcher the population of the planet Mobius]] for his own amusement before seeking revenge on Knuckles's people. In his second appearance, rebuilt as a cyborg, Zachary leads Robotnik to the location of the floating island's villagers so Robotnik could use them as components in a biological computer, which would consequentially kill them, a process which Zachary [[LackOfEmpathy happily watched over]]. Possessed of a vindictive streak matched by few, Zachary manages to outshine most of the comic's other antagonists despite his relatively minor running as a villain.

** [[KnightOfCerebus Chaos]], the BigBad of the final arc, undergoes significant AdaptationalVillainy from his [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure game counterpart]] and becomes incredibly vile. [[FromNobodyToNightmare Once a Drakon Prosecutor]] who fought for the glory of his cruel empire, Chaos was forcibly mutated into a beast made of Chaos Energy when he was exposed to the Chaos Emeralds. Sealed for a time, Chaos immediately goes on a destructive rampage once released by the careless exploit of Grimer, savagely killing Johnny Fleetfoot during his confrontation with the Freedom Fighters. Once Chaos comes into contact with the Chaos Emeralds again, Chaos attempts to drain them--uncaring this will cause the island they support to collapse into the ocean; even the amnesiac Super Sonic, who also used Chaos Energy, wasn't such an OmnicidalManiac--and later successfully manages to achieve his Perfect Chaos form upon absorbing them in Robotnik's fortress, announcing his intent to [[InTheirOwnImage remold the entire planet in his destructive image]] and murder all resistance towards him. In a comic already filled to the brim with villains that threaten all of Mobius, Chaos's actions have lasting effects on the Freedom Fighters and he ultimately stands as one of the most evil among the comic's villains.

** For some fans, the Christmas story which sees Robotnik visited by Father Christmas, who warns him that [[ForeShadowing his downfall is approaching]] and encourages him to change his evil ways, reminding him that he hasn't really benefited personally from his rulership of Mobius. Robotnik orders him to leave [[spoiler:before realizing that he was right]]: "Keep your advice, old man! I like being evil and I don't need presents! I'm in charge! I've got power! [[spoiler:I've got... I've got... I've got no friends on Christmas Day...]]"]]

** 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 GirlsNeedRoleModels 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.

** 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.
