Also, the series has [[Narm/SonicTheHedgehog a page]] for being [[{{Narm}} unintentionally hilarious]].

* Beating ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog1'' with all Chaos Emeralds results in an ending in which Robotnik [[AgitatedItemStomping angrily stomps on the "END" logo]] repeatedly. Even if you fail to collect them all, watching Eggman delightfully juggling the remaining emeralds is pretty funny, too.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTWnxQD5_sw&t=119s Japan version of Metallic Madness' Bad Future theme]] in ''VideoGame/SonicCD'' can be this, albeit [[NightmareRetardant likely very unintentionally.]] Between what sounds like edited clips of the [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Heavy Weapons Guy]] throughout it, the downright silly evil laughter, and the robotic voice's words being far less threatening than they're likely meant to and ending up sounding like comical insults and taunting thanks to the monotone and mostly being spoken during a less dire-sounding part of the melody ("YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING, SO DON'T EVEN TRY. GET SOME HELP." and "DON'T DO WHAT SONIC DOES.", to be exact), and it's really not difficult to see why the music could be hilarious for some people.
** The same soundtrack's equivalent for the present version of the level's theme counts as well, thanks to its [[https://youtu.be/aDJ4__DyyDA?t=16 hilariously cheesy rapping]].
* The American manual of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 warns of the dangers of going too fast, refering to [[GameBreakingBug certain bugs/quirks that result in trapping the player]] as "Dr. Robotnik's diabolical speed traps". Yes. It's one of the most amusing ways of reinforcing the Doctor's character while [[HandWave handwaving]] some of the, ah, technical difficulties that arise from Sonic actually being fast enough to literally run headlong into minor gamebreaking bugs.
* Shadow's LV. 2 attack in the first ''VideoGame/SonicRiders'' involves him roundhouse kicking anyone he comes close to... yes, even [[TokenMiniMoe Cream]]. Try it sometime.
* The opponent related throws in ''VideoGame/SonicTheFighters''.
** For Amy's, the character takes her hammer and smacks her over the head with it.
*** The way all the characters' heads look when flattened are hilarious.
** The character yanks back Espio's tongue and releases it, causing it to smack him in his face like a rubber band.
*** Depicted in fanart [[http://chibi-jen-hen.deviantart.com/art/Cat-Got-Your-Tongue-64444477 here]].
** The character steals Fang's popgun from his holster, causing him to panic before shooting him in the face with it.
** The character takes a bomb from Bean, [[FeedItABomb shoves it in his mouth]], and ducks in cover for a few seconds while Bean makes hilarious faces and the bomb explodes.
** Several of the attacks in general are funny. The game is practically ''Sonic the Hedgehog'' [[JustForFun/XMeetsY meets]] ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' meets ''VideoGame/VirtuaFighter''.
* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'' had a promotion where you could receive it for free with the purchase of any Sega Genesis that came with ''Sonic 1''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yp4pg1bOEdM The commercial]], however, [[AdvertisingTropes didn't stop there]].
** And then Sega did it again with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxT_2VYtHfE the trailer]] for the ''Videogame/SonicMania'' Collector's Edition. And they went even further.
* Meta example: Locked-on ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic & Knuckles]]'' cartridge [[http://www.pixelitis.net/news/what-happens-plug-30-sonic-knuckles-cartridges x 30]] = glitchy craziness.
* In ''Sonic 3 and Knuckles'', when you enter Mushroom Hill Zone after finishing Launch Base, Sonic and Tails or just Tails fly in and land. Knuckles, on the other hand, falls from the sky, and his expression is hilarious.
* [[http://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog The official twitter account of the series]] was fairly standard as far as corporate accounts go. [[http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1060784 Then they got a new community manager.]]
* In all of the 16-bit games, the expression on Robotnik's face whenever you hit him is priceless and makes one grateful that he [[RecurringBoss shows up in every level]]. His AsideGlance when he enters play or hits you is also pretty funny.
* Also in the 16-bit games, if you're playing as Sonic with the AI controlling Tails, any time Tails delivers the final blow to Robotnik's machine in a boss fight.
* For April Fools' Day 2016, the Sonic social media guys gave the world [[http://bigthec.at/ Big's Big Fishing Adventure 3]].
** As of this writing (February 11, 2017), they're doing a full-on fandub of it. With ''Creator/MikePollock as Dr. Eggman!''
* From the GameMod (of ''Sonic 1'' and ''2'') ''Sonic Classic Heroes'', you can switch between Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles if playing on Team Hero. In the infamous Labyrinth Zone boss, if you get the idea to swim your way to the top as Tails, [[WhatTheHellHero leaving Sonic and Knuckles to drown]], what will happen instead most of the time is one or both of them will desperately grab onto the swimming Tails, hoping to escape. But Tails can't carry anyone while swimming, so instead he will tire out instantly and fall down with the other two. Possibly the funniest unintentional use of VideoGameCrueltyPunishment.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SChPv1Z-c0M The 25th anniversary celebration video]] starts off as nothing more than descriptions of various ''Sonic'' games, each with an image of Sonic from those games. However...
** The description of ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'' focuses more on [[MemeticMutation Knuckles chuckling, the Barrel of Doom, & Knuckles]].
** The description of ''VideoGame/Sonic3DFlickiesIsland'' says "Save the Flickies...[[ScrappyMechanic if you can catch them!]]"
** The description of ''VideoGame/SonicR'' ends with "[[MemeticMutation Can you feel the Sunshine?]]"
** The description of ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' mentions [[{{Narm}} "all those Eggman Robots"]] and [[ThePowerOfFriendship "the real super power of teamwork!"]]
** ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' doesn't get anything but [[LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading the words "Now Loading..." ripped straight from the game's loading screen]].
** The description of ''VideoGame/SonicBoom'' simply talks about the positive reception [[WesternAnimation/SonicBoom the cartoon]] received for its mix of action and humor, with the actual games going unmentioned.
* [[Creator/RogerCraigSmith Sonic]] and [[Creator/MikePollock Eggman]] [[https://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog/status/746395506297835520 take to Twitter]] to answer people's questions, with hilarious results.
** Eggman has a [[https://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog/status/746396701250838528 message]] for ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'', who also happen to be celebrating the birthday of [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII Ezio Auditore Da Firenze]].
-->'''Eggman:''' Dear Assassin's Creed, hello! It's me, Dr. Eggman! I found something that belongs to you!
-->'''Ezio:''' What is this place? Where am I? What are these odd glowing gemstones?
-->'''Eggman:''' That's right, it's him! Enzio! Or Easy-O, however you say it.
-->'''Ezio:''' No no, my name is Ezio Audit-
-->'''Eggman:''' That's nice. Anyway, if you want to see him in your world again, send pictures of kittens our way as soon as possible, or we're keeping him! Thanks.
** Ubisoft followed through by linking a gif of kittens and asking if they could have Creator/RogerCraigSmith back.
** Sonic and Eggman [[https://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog/status/746425053575688193 respond]] to the WebVideo/GameGrumps, with Sonic getting a bit finicky at the mention of [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 a certain game from his past]].
-->'''Sonic:''' Oh, hey, it's them. The Game Grumps. I know these guys.
-->'''Eggman:''' Oh yes, I particularly like that time they played your ''[[SarcasmMode best]]'' [[SelfDeprecation game]].
-->'''Sonic:''' Uh, my ''best'' game?
-->'''Eggman:''' Y'know, [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 the one with the princess and stuff]], truly heartwarming story. You almost won that Oscar.
-->'''Sonic:''' Woah, Eggman, listen. [[https://youtu.be/WuGsRmEEx6s?t=7m39s Sometimes you have to draw a line in the sand, man! You gotta ask yourself "What am I willing to put up with today!?"]]
-->'''Eggman:''' Well, clearly not this.
** Sonic and Eggman attempt to read an apparently indecipherable comment, only for it to devolve into Eggman singing the Macerana.
*** This became a {{Brick Joke}} in the third Twitter takeover when both Sonic and Eggman convince Shadow to join their singing.
** Sonic and Eggman [[https://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog/status/746472782175698945 discover]] Music/SiIvaGunner.
-->'''Eggman:''' [=SiIvaGunner=] asks "What's your favorite [[InsistentTerminology high quality rip]]?"
-->'''Sonic:''' Well, let's take a listen...Uh, [[BaitAndSwitch are these real]]?
-->'''Eggman:''' Well, says here that he only uploads high quality rips, so must be.
-->'''Sonic:''' Not bad, [=SiIvaGunner=], not bad at all.
* To promote the launch of ''VideoGame/SonicForces'', Sonic and Eggman [[https://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog/status/926512267402739712 did another Twitter takeover]], this time with [[Creator/KirkThornton Shadow the Hedgehog]] joining in as well. And since Shadow is portrayed as being TheComicallySerious here, it goes about as well as you expect. Also, it's been nearly fourteen years, and apparently Shadow still hasn't found [[VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog that DAMN fourth Chaos Emerald]]!
** [[https://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog/status/926525749808345088 The trio rates Infinite]] on a scale from One to "[[MemeticMutation Ow The Edge]]". [[spoiler: Made even [[HilariousInHindsight funnier]] when ''Episode Shadow'' reveals that Shadow's rating and reasoning behind it isn't that far off from the truth, almost to the point of [[{{Foreshadowing}} fore]][[JustForPun shadowing]].]]
-->'''Eggman:''' I'd give him a full caps-lock "Ow The Edge". He's great! Mostly...
-->'''Sonic:''' Five out of ten on my side.
-->'''Shadow:''' One. Infinite is a mewing kitten in a world where darkness and terror knock daily on your door. He's just a cute ball of fluff. ''[[Series/BreakingBad I]]'' [[Series/BreakingBad am the one who knocks]].
** Shadow and Eggman [[https://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog/status/926534883421196288 find a question]] that [[ChangeTheUncomfortableSubject Sonic would rather skip]]:
-->'''Shadow:''' Oh, this is a good one. [=@JoannaWhiteRose=] asks "To Sonic, I have a challenge for you. Tell me how much you like Amy and what you like in her."
-->'''Eggman:''' Oh yeah Sonic, tell us what you like about that other hedgehog, Amy!
-->'''Sonic:''' [[ThisIsGonnaSuck Oh, no]]. Guys, can we ju-- can we just not do this right now? I mean, there's lots of other questions, like...
-->'''Shadow:''' What, Sonic? Are you embarrassed?
-->'''Eggman:''' Hehe, he's totally embarrassed! Ooh, I just got a message here from Infinite! [[ShipperOnDeck It's a file called]] "[[PortmanteauCoupleName Son]][[HoYay adow]]"...
-->'''Sonic:''' [[SuddenlyShouting NO, DON'T OPEN THAT]]!
** [[https://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog/status/926552296158199808 And following up on the above question]]:
-->'''Eggman:''' [=@Cassidy1205=] - that's a lot of numbers - asks "Shadow, what do you think about "Sonadow"?"
-->'''Shadow:''' One word, Cassidy... [[NoJustNoReaction NO]].
** Later on, the trio runs into a ''[[BerserkButton very]]'' [[https://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog/status/926590163605643264 touchy subject]].
-->'''Eggman''': Mudkip Captain asks: "To Shadow: How's.." Oh. Oh, no. I'm not asking this one!
-->'''Sonic''': It can't be that bad, lemme see that. "To Shadow: How's [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 Mar]][[OhCrap ia...]]" ''Oh''. [[ThisIsGonnaSuck Oh, yikes]].
-->'''Shadow''': [[TranquilFury Mudkip Captain, was it? Now you've angered me.]] Welcome to [[ActorAllusion the]] [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} list]]. It's a very ''special'' list, of very ''special'' people. I look forward to [[Film/KillBill crossing your name off it someday]].
-->'''Sonic''': [[SuddenlyShouting RUN WHILE YOU CAN!!]]
** [[https://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog/status/926617266564743168 Shadow is a weeaboo]].
-->'''Shadow''': First, anime is a highly-respected form of art, [[MemeticMutation it was not a mistake]]. And second, I like [[Anime/KillLaKill the one with the edgy girl with the scissor blade]].
** [[https://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog/status/926626184690937856 When one person asks what Eggman would do]] if he wasn't a MadScientist, Sonic thinks he could be a professional golfer, a movie star, or a chart-topping musician, while [[NotSoAboveItAll Shadow]] describes a scenario where Eggman [[CrazyCatLady adopts hundreds of cats and has to move out when they start multiplying]].
