** Once they realize how to do it, Sonic, Shadow and Silver theoretically could time travel ''however they damn well want'' and with seemingly no limitations - it even doubles as convenient teleportation! This could easily become a StoryBreakerPower given the implications. Instead they don't even think to actually use it properly, and when [[spoiler: Elise and Eggman die due to the Egg Carrier crashing,]] Sonic only succeeds in averting this at the last second when he could've essentially warped there from the start. The only reason he didn't? To have some last Soleanna Filler and a final stage.

** A lesser but repeatedly used example would be the sudden reveal that not only can two Chaos Emeralds and the usage of Chaos Control allow for ''time travel at will'', but the fact that Silver only sees Chaos Control ''once'' and yet [[AwesomenessByAnalysis apparently can use it perfectly thereafter]] to create time warps with Sonic and Shadow. Beyond his first attempt to counter Shadow with it, which results in a time warp in the first place [[spoiler: and, conveniently, [[UpToEleven goes exactly to where Mephiles and Iblis were born in the timeline,]]]] Silver never uses Chaos Control as an actual ability, only for the time travel plot.

[[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 Sonic did it too,]] but this is debatably a worse case.

** In-universe, Silver. After having found out that [[spoiler: Iblis can, for whatever reason, [[SealedEvilInACan only be sealed into some sort of royal vessel]] (ie: Elise),]] he then sees [[spoiler: Elise die.]] He promptly ''lets Sonic go save Elise again on his own'' instead of going with him, and then afterwards? He goes back to his destroyed future to defeat Iblis and then [[IdiotBall tries to seal it inside of himself.]] [[PlotHole Whether it's separate timelines or the bad future still existing due to Sonic having failed goes unexplained,]] but all this serves to do is [[spoiler: [[HeroicSacrifice force Blaze to seal Iblis inside of herself]] [[ButNowIMustGo and disappear from the plot,]] even removing her from being playable in [[ThatOneLevel the last story.]]]] [[SarcasmMode Thanks, Silver.]]

* WhatAnIdiot: In real life, SEGA due to the fact that they figured to [[ChristmasRushed rush the game out well before it was finished for holiday sales.]]

* NarmCharm: [[LargeHam The very hammy]] performances of Green as Mephiles ans Griffith as Shadow don't ruin their scenes at all. Quite the contrary, they make them a good bit cooler.

* TheyJustDidntCare:
** One particularly egregious case: In Shadow's story, an NPC gives him new instructions for the player to follow. The actor flubbed his lines and had to repeat them. The flubbed performance was ''kept in the game''.
** Especially telling was Sega's decision to fire the entire bug-testing crew before the game was completed to ensure its holiday release. [[ObviousBeta The results certainly speak for themselves....]]

* CompleteMonster: [[VileVillainSaccharineShow Mephiles]] the [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Dark]] is the malignant conscience of [[BigBad Solaris]] taken physical form and the one responsible for [[TheChessmaster arranging most of the events of the game]]. Accidentally created during the Solaris Project [[LiteralSplitPersonality alongside Iblis]], the raw physical strength of [[EldritchAbomination Solaris]], Mephiles was [[SealedEvilInACan sealed within a scepter]] that landed in the hands of Dr. Eggman. Upon breaking out, Mephiles orchestrated a gambit which involved inflicting pain and suffering on Princess Elise, causing her to cry, release the Flames of Disaster, and in doing so would [[FusionDance reunite him with Iblis]] to become [[EldritchAbomination Solaris]], allowing him to [[OmnicidalManiac destroy everything]] in [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt existence]]. To do this, Mephiles manipulates Silver into attempting to kill Sonic, and later cold-bloodedly kills Sonic himself--temporarily-- to goad Elise into crying over him. Mephiles manipulates everyone he can for the purpose of his ultimate goal and takes a [[AxCrazy sadistic glee in watching people suffer]]; unlike the mindless Iblis, Mephiles is fully aware of the scale of his atrocities and does them [[ForTheEvulz for no other reason than to see the world decay around him]]. A being that craved destruction alone, Mephiles's actions heavily damaged the space-time continuum and [[KnightOfCerebus brought a darkness]] to [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog the franchise]] seldom seen prior.
