-->--'''[[LargeHam Dr. Robotnik]]''' in ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog''

* ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' has noticeably some wall bangers:
** After released from the status tube by Rouge in Eggman's base, Shadow suffers from amnesia after his fall from space in ''Sonic Adventure 2'' and he has to team up with Rouge and Omega to find Eggman for their respective reasons. Later on, Team Dark discovers not only the fake Eggman but also the destroyed Shadow android, which caused Shadow to believe that he himself must be one too. Then Omega assures Rouge that the real Shadow must exist somewhere. One thing: ''Isn't the real Shadow with you guys for the whole entire time?'' Of course, in ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'', Eggman revealed to Shadow during the final boss that one of his robots saved him from the fall, and that he was never an android after all. [[SarcasmMode Well, thanks for wasting all of our good time for the black hedgehog's character arc, SEGA.]]
** It should have been extremely easy to check if Shadow was an android. X-ray anyone?
** Team Rose's story begins with Amy, Cream, and Big searching for Sonic, Froggy, and Chocola. Cue to the fight and even if they accuse Sonic of stealing Froggy and Chocola after seeing a picture of him running off with the two in a paper, [[spoiler: although it was Metal Sonic in disguise.]], Amy behaves like a StalkerWithACrush towards him and threatens to fight him if he refuses to marry him, forgetting about the real reason they are fighting Sonic.
** There is the cutscene where Team Dark appears in front of Team Sonic. Although Tails and Knuckles were in shock to see Shadow alive, all that Sonic has to say is "Talk about stubborn and full of surprises!". Uh, Sonic? Is that a proper way to treat someone who you thought was dead after a tremendous fall into earth? This cutscene was one of the reasons why Shadow's return was a lackluster.
** In the scene before the battle against [[spoiler:Metal Overlord]], Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles use the Chaos Emeralds to transform into Super Sonic and...Tails and Knuckles in super shields. Keep in mind that Knuckles can turn super with the Chaos Emeralds although Tails would have to turn super with the Super Emeralds.
* ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'' is filled with a lot of wall bangers, being another notoriously controversial Sonic game.
** In many stages, whenever you attack one of the allies, whether it be a GUN soldier/robot, one of Eggman's robots, or a Black Alien, you will earn yourself a [[WhatTheHellHero rebuke]] from your partner accompanied by them. Have they ever realize that same guys that you attacked were the same ones ''who tried to kill you in the first place?''
** The GUN Commander blames Shadow for the deaths of everyone aboard the ARK, including Maria, whom he was close to the same way Shadow was. Let's get this straight. How can you blame someone for the deaths of everyone ''even when they were in progress of being created?'' How can you blame a hedgehog for Maria's death when it was a G.U.N. soldier who killed her. Better yet, how could you work for a military organization who ''killed your best friend in the first place?'' It seems as if that guy hasn't really take any medication for his head when he was a child.
** The heroes, particularly Sonic, never bother to show any concern for Shadow's memories and also doesn't even bother to help him regain them. In the Space Gadget stage, for example, along with reminding him of their battle aboard the ARK, Sonic seems to have forgotten to remind him of the time they both teamed up to stop the Space Colony ARK from falling into earth, but he only tells him about the time they fought aboard the ARK and have a race for the Emerald.
** In one cutscene, Shadow encounters an army of Shadow Androids, believing that he himself is an android. Here's a problem. Shadow acts as though he saw an android for the first time, despite that he's seen one after the Egg Altraboss boss fight in ''Sonic Heroes''.
** As far as the story branching is concerned, there is hardly any consistency in it. In one scene, Shadow chooses to disobey Black Doom in the first stage, then a couple of scenes later, he stands by his side, making it look like as if he had never betrayed Black Doom at all. Also, when Shadow decides to help Eggman in Cryptic Castle, in the next scene, Eggman acts as though he doesn't know that Shadow was in the castle and decides to fight him with his Egg Breaker robot.
* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006''
** The entire Last Episode. It begins with the BigBad ''killing Sonic.'' The game is bloody ''named'' after him, but they went out of their way to make sure you didn't play as him during the final level - which is, by the way, filled with not only even more {{Game Breaking Bug}}s, but [[LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading even more loading screens than usual]] and [[DemonicSpiders instant-death gravity-sucking portals]]. And then after everyone recovers the Chaos Emeralds to save Sonic, Elise revives him ''with a TrueLovesKiss. [[{{Squick}} A human princess kisses Sonic to revive him.]]'' The final boss [[AnticlimaxBoss barely even puts up a fight]], despite everyone harping on that he's invincible. About the only good thing that came out of the episode was the [[AwesomeMusic/SonicTheHedgehog final phase's battle theme]] -- just ''barely'' enough to soothe the pain of playing through [[Horrible/VideoGames that wreck]].
** At the start of TLE, Mephiles shows up and shoots Sonic InTheBack, in order to make Elise cry. He is a time traveller. He could've done that ''at any point since Elise met Sonic and bonded with him''. One theory is that he simply prefers manipulating people to try and do it for him, and/or is a coward.
** Elise apparently never cried, not even once, from ages 7 to 17. ''Not even when she learned her father was dead''. However, she does cry at age seventeen over the death of a guy that '''she knew for less than a day'''. Also, killing her also releases Iblis. She could've gotten a car bomb or sniper rifle, since Mephiles had literally all the time in her life to try and kill her.
** Robotnik's plan was to gain the Flames of Disaster from Elise. Yet at the end, he's disgusted by the fact that Mephiles had to make her cry to do so, which was really the only way. In short, Robotnik invaded a kingdom and nearly caused a princess to commit suicide over a plot that ''he himself'' believes is morally unjust. Does [[EvenEvilHasStandards evil have standards here]] or not?!
** In Silver's ending, Blaze seals up Iblis inside her and has Silver transport her into another dimension. This explains how she could be both from the future ''and'' another dimension. However, this is completely ignored in future appearances, meaning Sega drew up one of the most plausible plot points in the mess of ''Sonic 2006'', then {{retcon}}ned it for no reason whatsoever.
** When Sonic finds out why Silver wants to kill him, he doesn't care and starts fretting on how the Princess will soon die. When they get back to the present and Rouge and Shadow are nowhere to be found, he doesn't care and starts reading about Elise in a poorly translated newspaper. When Elise dies on the battleship, he begins throwing a fit of a larger dynamic of his reaction when Shadow "died" in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2''. Death isn't a light matter, but he feels worse about the death of a girl he knew for ''less than a day'' than about the death of a guy who just sacrificed his life for millions of people against whom he had a grudge.
** The '''entire character''' of Princess Elise is a wall banger. It's not what she said at the end of the game that's the problem. She had one selfish moment, which shows that she's human. Besides, she didn't even mean it. The real problem is what she does throughout the whole game: '''nothing'''. That's right; she does absolutely ''nothing''. When the situation becomes urgent, she just stands back, clasps her hands, and hopes that everything will be all right. Not once does she tell Silver to stop hurting Sonic (as Amy did) or demand that Dr. Eggman release her. One would think that a princess would have ''some'' level of authority, but that's not the case here. There are other princesses from other games that have shown more authority than Elise. Princess Karin from ''VideoGame/EnchantedArms'', Princess Zelda from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', and Princess Ruto from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' are good examples. Even ''Princess Peach'' has shown more authority in one cut-scene in ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' than Princess Elise has in the entire game of Sonic 2006, and the former has been kidnapped ''many'' times. The only times where Elise actually grows a spine are the moment when she attempts suicide in order to get away from Dr. Eggman and the moment when she willingly goes with Dr. Eggman to prevent him from destroying the entire town of Soleanna, and even then, those were really acts of desperation and sacrifice respectively. No, go ahead, Elise. Act helpless and let Sonic save you.
** Did Sonic seriously think that leaving Elise alone in the castle was a good idea? If that wasn't bad enough, Amy did the same exact thing in Silver's story!
* In ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'', towards the start of the game, when Sonic turns into a werehog for the second time and muses to himself, "I just need to be careful who sees me like this." [[UnusuallyUnInterestingSight Turns out that nobody in the game cares that Sonic has assumed this new monstrous form]] - not even Tails or Amy Rose, officially neutering the werehog as a plot device for the rest of the game.
* ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'' throws Blaze's backstory out a window. In Silver's ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' ending, Blaze seals up Iblis inside her and has Silver transport her into another dimension. This explains how she could be both from the future ''and'' another dimension. However, this is completely ignored in future appearances, meaning Sega drew up one of the most plausible plot points in the mess of ''Sonic 2006'', then {{retcon}}ned it for no reason whatsoever. After the player rescues Blaze in Crisis City, Blaze comes back to life and then says, "I never thought I would see this place again," clearly referring to Crisis City. Is Crisis City part of Blaze's backstory or not, Sonic Team?
