** The codename for the first ''VideoGame/CrashBandicoot'' was "Sonic's Ass" (since it was going to be a MascotWithAttitude platformer that's like a 2D game rotated, and that forward progress involves seeing the character's backside all the time). This game is the first Sonic game that's a "Sonic's Ass" game (at least with the daytime stages).

** More impressive, he explains in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owQGh2KWayQ this interview]] that he had to do all of the game's lines with a strep throat.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Chip. Some find him and his relationship with Sonic over the course of the game to be adorable and heartwarming, others hate him for being an annoying, unfunny ExpositionFairy with a very unfitting English voice.

* MemeticMutation: A screenshot of the beta version of the opening cutscene had [[http://www.halolz.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/03/sonirea.jpg Sonic making a face that just screams "WTF".]] The internet took great notice of this.

Added DiffLines:

* ThatOneSidequest: The Shamar quest "Save Yasmine". A timed course lasting two minutes, and all but the most skilled players will need every second. The course lasts much longer than other timed challeneges, and there's next to no margin of error. To make it even more frustrating, beating it requires finding a shortcut near the beginning that you're only likely to find by complete accident, as it requires making a jump after going through a loop. In game full of punishing sidequests, this one takes the cake.

Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Some who don't hate the Werehog gameplay itself instead wish that it was given to a different character whose abilities actually revolve around fighting and feel that the BeatEmUp gameplay wouldn't get as much backlash that way. Knuckles is the most common candidate, considering that he's shown to be the most adept fistfighter of the cast.

* {{Padding}}:
** WordOfGod has it that the Werehog was added, among other things, to increase the length of the game, a job it is a ''bit'' too good at (a typical Werehog level is about three times the duration of a Sonic level). There are also segments near the end of the HD versions where a typical player will probably have to go out and constantly replay the levels for Sun or Moon Medals in order to unlock the next stage. [[spoiler:120 Sun Medals to unlock daytime Jungle Joyride? Ouch.]]
** This is also present in the [=Wii/PS2=] version, where (after beating the game) players may need to grind for medals in order to unlock Gaia Gate puzzles, which will allow them to unlock extra levels.

* BrokenBase: Do yourself a favor, ''don't'' ask the online fanbase if this game is good or not. Another point of contention is {{Wii}}/[[PlayStation2 PS2]], with many arguments over whether the game is better than the HD version, not as good but good in its own right, or an abomination that never should have been made.

* GeniusBonus: Remember Popping Eggcorn sold at Eggman Land? Well, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eggcorn "eggcorn" is a real word]]. It was coined in 2003, meaning the word was only five years old before it appeared in ''Sonic Unleashed''.
