While the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' franchise [[LongRunners has grown up]], it [[{{Narm}} doesn't always show]] when it comes to the writing.

See also the page for moments that are [[Funny/SonicTheHedgehog truly and intentionally funny]].


[[folder:The 8-bit/16-bit games]]
* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog1'':
** After Scrap Brain Zone Act 2, with only one act left before Final Zone, the devs decide to intensify the story. The music changes, and the diabolical Eggman, with a big grin on his face, slowly approaches and hits a switch that... takes you to the next level. Which is an inexplicable PaletteSwap of Labyrinth Zone.
** The final showdown is simply called... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Final Zone]]. Not even a "The" preceding it, just "Final Zone."
* ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'':
** As seen in the ''Sonic Adventure 2'' review by Somecallmejohnny (when admitting that Eggman wasn't the sharpest tool in the drawer in the 16-bit era either), a pre-boss battle in Flying Battery has Eggman controlling a laser beam that fires at Sonic. Each time it fires, it's apparent that it's damaging Eggman's own base, until, after enough times, his trap falls apart and Sonic can continue on. What makes this one Narm is the look of surprise Eggman makes as it breaks down, as if he didn't expect it to happen.
* Multiple:
** A strange breed of unintentional hilarity in the classic games: any time Eggman is scripted to run as fast as he needs to to avoid Sonic's grasp, like in ''Sonic 2'''s Death Egg Zone where you can spin dash at him and he'll still get away.
* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogCD'' features the Metallic Madness Bad Future theme in the Japanese version. The robotic voice of Dr. Eggman taunting you would be a tad more menacing, but then he throws in the line "Get some help!" It sounds like he's encouraging the player to get assistance or to seek a therapist.

[[folder:''Sonic Adventure'']]
* Let's start with this line from the opening scene:
-->"Oh, no! Our weapons are useless! Retreat! All personnel, fall back!"
** What really pushes this into Narm territory is the fact that, upon receiving this order, the kneeling police officers calmly get to their feet and proceed to ''moonwalk'' away from [[EldritchAbomination Chaos]].
* "Our hearts combined form awesome power!". Sure they do, Tails.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h79QNucv-eE "Watch out, you're gonna crash! AAH!"]] Made more ridiculous by the way his tongue sticks out at the end of that line. Doubly so since he does that expression a few times. Stick out spines and poke tongue out. It's almost adorable.
* While we're at it, almost every single facial expression in the game.
* There's also Knuckles' absolutely apathetic cry of "Oh no" whenever he is hit in the boss battle against him. It's become infamous to the point of MemeticMutation, especially since ''VideoGame/SonicMania''[='=]s intro made him a minor ButtMonkey. Part of why the phrase sounds so wrong is because it ''is'' wrong. It's from a different take his voice actor did (which can be heard on the E3 demo) and is from a completely different cutscene.
** Same goes for Sonic whenever you fight against ''him''. Not ''quite'' as memetic as Knuckles, but still infamous.
*** The way Sonic says "No" when he dies is just as bad.
*** It's even "better" if he falls into water or a bottomless pit. "'''NAUGH.'''"
* Sonic half-yelling "Eeeeeeeeegmaaaaaaan" with all the passion and rage of a waitress reciting the beer menu. (To be fair, he ''had'' just gotten a face-full of sleeping gas and was about to lose consciousness. But then you'd expect him to be slurring his words, not trailing off.)
** Tails' version of it is even funnier. He sounds like a zombie.
* Once Chaos gets the first Emerald, Sonic tells Tails "We can't let that monster get any bigger. It could get ugly!" It sounds more like he's worried about how hideous Chaos will look, rather than the danger he poses.
* "All's well that ends well, right?" Made even funnier if you've seen the LetsPlay/HellfireCommentaries play-through of it:
--> '''Fastest Thing Alive:''' ''THE CITY'S BEEN FUCKING DESTROYED!!!!''
* Let's not forget the infamous Tails line, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soXVWOHgmIk "That's Eggman! I wonder what happened to Sonic?"]]
* Eggman's [[MemeticMutation infamous line]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03e-kKjko_U "Get a load of this!"]] Unsurprisingly, it became quite popular for use in StupidStatementDanceMix videos.
** Not to mention the "Ha ha ha, see if you can make it through here, Sonic!" line whenever he [[TacticalSuicideBoss reveals his weak-point for all to see...]]
** Also Eggman's ridiculous arm flailing when he says the above line.
*** ''ANYTHING'' Eggman says is truly narm in the English dub, because of the [[ChewingTheScenery hammy delivery]].
* Some of the lyrics to Knuckles's theme, especially this line: "You can call me Knuckles/Unlike Sonic, I don't chuckle/I'd rather flex my muscles." The chuckling line becomes funnier if you remember how in ''Sonic 3 & Knuckles'', he chuckled a lot as he antagonized you while Sonic did no such thing.
** What's even better is the final line: "I was born by myself, I don't need a posse/''I get it on by myself,'' adversaries get shelved." I mean, honestly? This was included in a children's game?
* After completing the Sky Deck and leaving the pool in Knuckles' storyline, there is a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaGtH9GRnmU cutscene]] in which Knuckles witnesses Chaos' transformation into Chaos 6 some distance away. It would be an okay scene, but for some reason the game plays his "drowning" death vocal, making it seem like he drowned ''in air.'' It doesn't help that his drowning voice clip sounds like he's possessed by WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}}.
* This line:
--> '''Tails:''' [[AccidentalInnuendo Come on, Sonic, we need to get busy!]]

[[folder:''Sonic Adventure 2'']]
* Even though ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' was made in America, the script apparently got translated to Japanese and then back into English, rendering lines that were only sometimes comprehensible, rarely synced to the mouth movements, and even ''overlapped each other''. "He must be using the Chaos Emerald to wa...[rp]" "[My]...name is Shadow."
** Let's not forget how some of the lines were left completely untranslated.
** This exchange:
---> '''Shadow:''' Faker? I think YOU'RE the fake hedgehog around here! You're comparing yourself to me?! HA! You're not even good enough to be [my fake]!
---> '''Sonic:''' [I'll make] you eat those words!
** Worse, sometimes the overlapping was between lines spoken ''by the same character''. "Hey. It's not his spee[d]. [H]e must be using the Chaos Emerald to war[p]."
** Then there's an instance where Eggman is ''supposed'' to cut off another character, but because of Japanese and English's different sentence structures, he reacts about a second too early.
---> '''Reporter:''' Mysteriously, the only thing that was stolen was th--
---> '''Eggman:''' The Chaos Emerald?!
---> '''Reporter:''' --aos Emerald.
** Speaking of that scene, the news report could have been dramatic if the reporter wasn't speaking with some kind of [[WhatTheHellIsThatAccent mix-and-match accent]] made from bits of Australian, cod-Canadian, and [[IAmVeryBritish rugby-ball-up-the-arse]] English. The strange part is that this seems to be ''intentional''.
** How has Sonic's finishing blow to the Egg Golem in the Dark story not been mentioned yet?
---> '''Sonic:''' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXfs2nf4-Y0 TERIAAAA!]]
*** Add to the fact that this is one of the more serious Sonic installments, and the subtitles are in ''Comic Sans MS''.
** Tails' reaction to Sonic's (apparent) death was something of a DullSurprise.
---> '''Tails:''' What have you done, to Sonic? I'll never forgive you for this.
** Before the scene above, there's the scene where Sonic tries to give the fake Chaos Emerald to Eggman. When Eggman traps him, Sonic gives out a "Whoa.", while his mouth is stretched out to ''comically large proportions''. Even worse, the "Whoa" is the same thing he says during playtime when the player has him an inch away from falling off a cliff.
** The same scene has Amy's ridiculously fake crying: "Soniiiic... UH HAW HAW HAW."
** During both Sonic and Shadow DuelBoss fights, if you're using Sonic and hit Shadow enough times, Shadow will drop these gems:
--->'''Shadow''' (''first battle''): I'm the coolest!
--->'''Shadow''' (''second battle''): [[CaptainObvious Ow. That hurt.]]
** To add another ''Adventure 2 Battle'' line to the mix, during the final fight of Dark (Shadow vs. Sonic), whenever Sonic falls off the edge (which will happen a lot): "I'll use your technique! [=CHAOS... CONTROOOooOOL!=]" [[MostAnnoyingSound Every. Single. Time.]]
*** He stops himself mid-sentence most of the time. "I'll use your -- CHAOS CONTROL!"
*** Sounds like Sonic is throwing a [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Poké Ball]] containing Chaos Control...
*** In the Dreamcast version, Sonic just says "I'll use... CHAOS CONTROL!"
*** "I'm not done with yo[u yet!] -- '''SONIC WIND!'''
** Sonic and Shadow's second battle with each other is full of Narm, no matter which side you're playing. The equivalent to Sonic's above quote is Shadow's, "THIS IS THE ULTIMATE!"
*** The above cases are rare examples in which the player is largely responsible, as Sonic and Shadow's lines ("I'll use your technique! Chaos Control!" and "This is the ultimate power!", respectively) can be cut off if the player zooms too far ahead of their rival during the utterance and subsequent Chaos Control warp, causing the dialogue to skip ahead so that the A.I. can keep up with the player.
*** Before their first battle in Green Forest on the Hero side, you see Shadow jump down onto the platform Sonic's on. While it looks cool, [[OffModel Shadow's model does not have a mouth and has hilariously drooped down eyebrows]], all while he's saying, "There's no time to play games. You won't even get the chance!", as if Shadow is a wet blanket that doesn't want Sonic to have any fun.
** The final fight with the [=FinalHazard=]. The Biolizard's merged with the Space Colony ARK to expedite its descent onto Earth, so Super Sonic and Super Shadow head out to stop it. The battle itself is epic, complete with Music/Crush40's "Live and Learn" blaring out, but the final boss itself becomes a lot more silly, since it looks more like the Biolizard has the ARK's Eclipse Cannon [[AssShove shoved up its arse]].
* Sonic's delivery of the line "''BLOWS UP''?!"
** Adding to that, in the Hero Story, Sonic says this line, as well as the line, "I've got to find Amy and Tails right away!" with his ''teeth clenched''. He actually moves his mouth on the Dark Story, but that doesn't excuse how he can do that in the Hero story.
*** Not to mention Shadow with his mouth hanging open the whole time.
* "My ''power'' is ''FAILING''!"
* In the last story, we have this hilarious moment. The colony starts falling, Sonic and Knuckles feel the sudden vibration and realize something bad is happening. Rouge appears and explains the situation in a complete deadpan... And then she opens her mouth and eyes widely, after Gerald's last message suddenly pops up on a screen nearby.
* The last story. Sonic and Shadow are preparing to go into their [[SuperMode super forms]] to fight the Biohazard and save the earth. Knuckles watches them, transfixed in awe... with the most vacant expression ever on his face. Summed up best by [[LetsPlay/ClementJ642 the Great Clement]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8tcWV88bn0&list=PL0C4AC0C51E10B525#t=605 here.]]
* Before Amy busts Sonic out of his cell, he says the reason he's imprisoned is because of "that fake hedgehog." What makes it funny is that Sonic [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaWkTfGG67I&t=0m29s can't be bothered to interrupt his little exercise session.]]
* For such a [[TheStoic stoic]] character, Shadow has quite the [[LargeHam hammy displays]] at times, enhanced by his [[PerpetualFrowner permanent frown]] and his English VA's delivery:
-->'''Shadow:''' *talking to no one* It all starts with this... *holds Chaos Emerald over his head* A jewel containing the ultimate power! [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fwN_n3N5Ao]]
-->'''Shadow:''' *speaking slowly to Eggman* I've been waiting for you, Doctor. Now, I will show the glooorious achievement of what the world's leading scientist -- Professor Gerald -- has created. (...) A weapon capable of destroying an entire planet. *points index finger skywards* Codenamed: The Eclipse Cannon! *clenches hand into a fist* (...) [[MilkingTheGiantCow *extends arms to the sides*]] Once you have that, then you have the ultimate power of destruction to use as you please. And then... (closeup on face) the wooorld... could be yooours! [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfhZsqedLbk]]
* Is that what...Chaos Control is?! -- [[DubInducedPlothole Said by Shadow, the first person to use Chaos Control in the series.]]
* Some of Eggman's lines are pretty strangely delivered.
--> (when petting a Chao) ''Yooooosh....''[[note]]"Yosh" is actually Japanese for "okay" or "alright"; the English dubbers just never bothered to translate it.[[/note]]
--> (in the cutscene leading up to [[MarathonLevel Cannon's Core]]) ''Then, let's get to WOOOOORK!''
--> (said when Sonic enters the last room in the gravity gimmick level) ''Well done, Sonic, but you'll never leave this room alive! Ha-HA!''
** That line is delivered so strangely, '''it doesn't even sound like Eggman'''.
* At the beginning of Rouge's driving stage:
--> (spoken normally) I'm picking up a signal from the Emerald. (amazingly high-pitched and whiny) Fox boy, ''wait for meeee!''
* And then there's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-DKysy2ef0 the immortal line,]] [[AccidentalInnuendo "We all did it together!"]]
** Making this even worse is that it comes right after Eggman makes a surprisingly emotional and genuinely well-acted speech about his grandfather. Nice job ruining the moment, Tails!
* Tails is capable of drowning in the Dreamcast version of the Hero Garden because of how short he is. Unlike Sonic and Shadow, who have unused drowning voiceclips while using Knuckles and Rouge's drowning animations, Tails is completely silent as he keels over backward and floats up.

[[folder:''Sonic Heroes'']]
* Let's show that creep THE REAL SUPER POWER OF TEAMWORK! Yeah, because WE'RE SONIC HEROES! Actually, the entirety of ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' was pretty Narmy.
* "Let's blast through with SONIC SPEED!"
** "OK!" "ALRIGHT!"
* "SHAA!"
* Rouge's "I'm getting dizzy" vocal sounds suspiciously like [[StockSoundEffects Howard Dean's YAAAGH scream]]. It's even worse in that her VA says it sounding ''very'' much like Tails.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEbmNrx5ZZs This cutscene]] leading up to Team Sonic vs. Robot Storm.
* There's also [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJjimQZU884 this from Hang Castle.]] All-around Narm.
* And that's not getting into the music... Although it comes off as NarmCharm to a point.
* Upon defeating Metal Sonic:
-->'''Metal Sonic:''' I am the ultimate overlord, Metal Sonic! [[ImmediateSelfContradiction I am the real Sonic]]!
** Debatable in that Metal Sonic [[SanitySlippage became progressively loopier]] in the interim leading up to ''Heroes''. If he can outright state that he knows [[EvilKnockoff he's Sonic's robotic doppelganger]] and then turn around and say he's the real Sonic, [[AIIsACrapshoot the bot is clearly off his gourd]].
* "Take thi- Take thi- Take thi- Take this!"
* "Hey! There's a FROG over there!"
* "Shi! Urah! Yeeeeeaaaaah!"
** Which, frankly, [[{{Mondegreen}} sounds like]] "Shit! Rock! Yeeeeeaaaaah!" to some.
* "I'll punch this thing [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment WITH MY FISTS]]!"
* Play as Team Chaotix, get a bad reel on one of the casino level slots with Espio as the lead. Listen to his needlessly overdramatic guttural growl of:
--->'''Espio:''' [[BigNo NOOOOOO!]] I have failed!!
** He really elongates the "NO" there and can't decide between screaming it and growling it. It sounds very silly, especially when Espio's now portrayed as a ninja, if not then a parody of anime ninja. It's surprising that SEGA hasn't had him recite the [[AsianRuneChant Kuji-In]] yet.
* "You're going to pay for this!" does not sound very threatening when being said by a [[DumbMuscle big dopey cat]] to a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot giant robot-dragon]] [[BuffySpeak thing]].
* The 4 ConflictBall cutscenes where 2 teams are about to battle each other. It's absurd how quick they are to start a fight. Take a look:
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcLAsZ5EVhE Team Sonic vs. Team Dark]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lxVfjfZjR4 Team Dark vs. Team Chaotix]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFXmsIi0eOk Team Chaotix vs. Team Rose]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nRyYRv3uEc Team Rose vs. Team Sonic]]
* Tails' extremely grating "YA WANT SOME MOOOORE!?" line makes him sound like a kid who's trying to act like a tough guy he saw in a movie.
* Amy's cry of "Oh my GOD!" whenever you come across an item like a 1-UP is sure to raise a few laughs.
* ''Anything'' Tails says in the English dub, due to his VA being an actual child who can't act to save his life. He makes the ''Peanuts'' actors sound like ''Creator/MerylStreep'' in comparison.
** He also has one of the most infamous mistranslations in the franchise:
-->'''Tails''': Look at all those Eggman's robots.
* Eggman's shout of "WOAH!" whenever you hit the Egg Hawk. To make matters worse, most people complete the battle using Homing Attack spam, which creates an ear-splitting chain of "WOAH!".
* "Hey, look! [[MundaneMadeAwesome There's]] '''''[[MundaneMadeAwesome bingo]]''''' [[MundaneMadeAwesome on the table!]]"

[[folder:''Shadow the Hedgehog'']]
* The expression on the GUN Commander's face when, [[{{Flashback}} as a child]], he saw Shadow's creation.
** The fact that the GUN Commander as a kid had such a horrified reaction to the sight of a cartoon hedgehog after cheerfully playing around in the same space colony that housed the creation of dangerous research projects like a giant mutant lizard and the berserk bionic clones of a god that destroyed an ancient civilization. This was apparently traumatic enough for him to blame Shadow for the death of Maria and to try to get revenge on him by joining the very organization that was actually responsible for her death.
*** Also, why exactly was a kid other than Maria on the Colony anyway?
** Not helping this scene was the introduction before it, in which the GUN Commander gives a speech about Maria being like his sister over a flashback of the two of them on the ARK. Would have been more dramatic, except the GUN Commander as a kid tauntingly spanks himself as if to say that Maria can't catch him, all while on a big, dramatic space station. And the gesture looks very, ''very'' silly.
* [[VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog The game]] in general has been hailed by some as a [[SoBadItsGood camp masterpiece]], largely due to the copious amounts of {{Narm}} (but not entirely).
* "Where's that... DAMN fourth Chaos Emerald?!"
** This is made especially comical because [[FailedASpotCheck the subtitles put the emphasis on the word "fourth" instead]], even though there is absolutely no such emphasis in the dialogue.
*** They seem to put a huge emphasis on the word [[PrecisionFStrike DAMN]] every time Shadow spouts it off, almost as if they're flaunting that it's supposed to be DarkerAndEdgier than the mainstream series.
* [[MemeticMutation "FIND THE COMPUTER ROOM!"]]
* Black Doom manages to be sillier than just a typical GenericDoomsdayVillain thanks to a voice that sounds eerily like [[WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget Dr. Claw]].
** In the Last Story, as he sics his Black Leeches on the paralyzed heroes:
--> '''Black Doom''': "Ah, my dear offspring... [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment eat and devour]] these savory dishes!!!"
** Cue the Black Leeches just squelching about in front of Sonic and friends while the furries (and Eggman) [[ChewingTheScenery completely overreact]]. Seriously, the SpecialEffectFailure just totally ''wrecked'' that scene.
** It doesn't help that [[Anime/DragonBallZ the same person who voices Black Doom also does the English dub for Goku]].
* Creator/JasonGriffith's hammy performance as Shadow is further exacerbated by animations that have him clutching his chest like he's suffering heart failure.
* Shadow's ridiculous barrage of expletives whenever he gets attacked.
** After Shadow falls...
--->'''Shadow:''' Damn! Not here!
* Upon discovering Eggman's fleet of Shadow Androids, Shadow goes on to utter the following line with downright [[Creator/WilliamShatner Shatnerian]] diction:
--> '''Shadow:''' Shadow.... ANDROID?! Am I... an... android TOO?!
** One level later, Shadow asks Eggman if he is indeed an android. Eggman confirms this, but Shadow's reaction is a very confused "What?", like he didn't actually expect Eggman to say yes.
** This "revelation" is even more hilarious if you complete the Hero mission on Air Fleet or the Dark mission on Space Gadget. Despite never seeing a Shadow Android in those stages (at least, in Iron Jungle's Neutral mission, he ''does'' encounter them, so there was ''some'' kind of logic behind that), for no logical or discernible reason, he ''still'' jump to the conclusion that he's an Android.
* During the Glyphic Canyon level, when you've got Knuckles with you, has a segment where you have to walk into this tornado to progress. What does Knuckles have to say while you're doing this? [[LargeHam "HELP!!!]] [[CaptainObvious WE'RE BEING SUCKED IN!!!"]] This is made much more hilarious for two reasons: the first is that Knuckles is voiced by the [[LargeHam glorious]] Creator/DanGreen, and the second is that, if you wait around on the bridge for a bit, Knuckles will ''tell you to walk into the tornado''.
* The GUN Commander's exposition rant to Shadow just before the Cosmic Fall level. Quite profound and dramatic and would be very much so in a more serious game... if not for the fact that, gun aside, the scene looks quite comical when he's ranting about this to a nearly adorable cartoon hedgehog.
** After Cosmic Fall, if you go for the Hero ending of the Hero pathway, Shadow will lament that he should never have been created. This TearJerker moment is then promptly ruined by Vector blurting out "Hey, don't go there...yet!" in his exceedingly goofy voice.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDOjxgfUUnw The Pure Hero Dark Ending:]] After defeating Sonic, Shadow goes on to proclaim...
-->...now, [[OverlyNarrowSuperlative I am the most powerful hedgehog in the world!]] The power of these Emeralds makes me invincible! I am the ultimate hedgehog! This is WHO I AM. *maniacal laugh*
* A lot of the "enraged" faces Shadow makes during the intro.
* [[DidntThinkThisThrough Shadow taking the Chaos Emerald powering the space colony he's on, causing it to meltdown]] which prompts him to make [[http://i.gyazo.com/c0a056ede6c4fe3f01e374bb579a1335.png this face.]]
* "This blue sky... staring at it from afar, have I seen it before?"
* The President having a framed photograph of Sonic and Shadow.
** Hilariously lampshaded by the WebVideo/GameGrumps when they notice this and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmSktzhqQVI&t=7m3s promptly start pissing themselves laughing.]]
-->'''Danny:''' ''(cracking up)'' The only thing that was missing was him like, gently running an index finger across Sonic's face!
** And by Funny/TeamFourStar [[https://youtu.be/OQaMCkj-h50?t=46 as well.]]
* "I'm sending you STRAIGHT TO HELL!"

[[folder:''Sonic the Hedgehog 2006'']]
* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' did have some. This is especially due to the contrast of the [[UncannyValley kind-of realistic humans]] and the animal and human contrast during the drama scenes, the nonsensical plot, the dialogue, and moments of pure silliness like Eggman or Tails pressing buttons like he was a cartoon.
** During Shadow's Story, there's a message from a GUN Agent who tells you that Omega has tracked down Mephiles to Wave Ocean... [[https://youtu.be/BvjKVJ9wXVU?t=496 and the actor botches up the line and tries it again!]] Keep in mind that this is left in the [[ObviousBeta "finished" game]].
** At least Eggman's moments are SoBadItsGood. The scenes with him in are pretty much one of the few bearable bits of the game's plot.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qyPSoZC2qc "Don't touch it!"]]
** Don't forget Mephiles' "resurrection," where he introduces himself then starts zombie walking while looking straight down. This, combined with his black and white color scheme.
** And then there's the glorious Narm that is [[spoiler:Sonic's death scene]]: the overdramatic slow-mo fall, Princess Elise's BigNo, the organ that plays like an old-timey film, the total randomness of the murder, or the fact that being ''[[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaled by a laser lance of death]]'' [[BloodlessCarnage apparently doesn't leave a single mark on him.]]
*** Mephiles's [[LargeHam Large Ham]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_S_AZrxQGg laugh.]]
*** The heroes' reactions to seeing Sonic's corpse.
---->'''Tails:''' No... You don't think?
** Much earlier in the game, there's another bit of BloodlessCarnage. Sonic takes Elise to what can only be described as ''the Windows XP desktop'', but Elise notices that Sonic's shoulder is apparently wounded. "You're hurt!" "It's nothing." And just like with [[spoiler:Mephiles impaling him]]...''it's '''literally''' nothing.'' Though this doesn't stop Elise from bandaging it up...[[GameplayAndStorySegregation said bandage isn't rendered in gameplay, and never appears again in any cutscene afterwards.]] It only served as an act of sappy romance.
** In Sonic's boss battle with Silver. "It's no use!" While meant to cause fear, surprise, or even wonder, it quickly becomes Narmy, and even more quickly [[MostAnnoyingSound becomes frustrating]], especially after the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zct-Ufi5Lsg#t=7m3s 20th or 30th time.]]
** "That tornado is carrying a car!"
*** Besides carrying cars, the tornado is also sentient (throws cars in front of Sonic) and stops when you finish the level, just hanging out in the background while Sonic poses.
*** These traits returned in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations''' Crisis City stage, seemingly sentient in its following Sonic and throwing every car in his direction and also stopping when Sonic reaches the end.
** Sonic's "Test of Love." If an oracle using "Dramatic" lines to tell you to choose between two girls in a mission that's so random it's basically a BigLippedAlligatorMoment isn't enough for you, keep in mind that this supposedly dramatic choice used the same upbeat little tune all the other missions use.
** During the final boss of Sonic's story, Eggman will occasionally yell "Fall!", sounding less like an evil genius trying to kill you and more like a little kid who was one pin away from getting a strike in bowling.
*** Similarly, him occasionally yelling "Here I come, Sonic!" sounds odd considering this incarnation of Eggman was more realistically designed and acted than his more traditional appearances otherwise.
*** And than there is his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrhbwgOfs-Q#t=6m44s infamous death scene]]
** And then there's Sonic's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytxooM3YnM8 hilariously goofy/creepy laughter]]. Thank you, Creator/JasonGriffith...
** What about the part where Mephiles twirls? [[https://youtu.be/e5RGcc6xYzo?t=5m38s As seen here,]] he sort of pirouettes off screen. It's supposed to be teleportation, but it looks more like he's auditioning for the role of [[Theatre/SwanLake Rothbart.]]
* When the characters fall down into BottomlessPits, you can't help but get a laugh. Shadow's [[BigNo dramatic death quote]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLN812WawlA#t=21m59s is particularly funny.]]
* The achievements have some pretty hilarious Engrish, such as "Super Sonic obtain the all moves!"
* Elise, if you get an A rank on Dusty Desert: "I'm tho ''happy,''" in a voice that sounds more like a ValleyGirl than a princess.
* When Silver is defeated, he half-yells "Not... now..." in a tone that brings back unfortunate memories of Knuckles's "oh no" from ''Sonic Adventure''.
* Sonic travels across the entirety of Tropical Jungle carrying Elise on his arms and doesn't seem to be hampered one iota by that. Sonic has all of his moves, attacks, speed, and jumping height as if he wasn't carrying anything. When using his Homing Attack, his movements look like he shoves Elise into enemies to damage them. He can even grab onto swinging vines!
** For some reason, [[ArtisticLicensePhysics Sonic actually goes slightly faster carrying Elise than normal.]]
* Most of Sonic's deaths in the High Speed Sections, which either involve rotating randomly behind a wall while running on mid air, or just going straight through the floor.

[[folder:''Sonic Unleashed'']]
* The Dark Gaia battle of ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' suffered from a Narm of its own: The UnexpectedGameplayChange of fighting its first form ''[[spoiler:with a HumongousMecha formed from all of the Gaia shrines, Rock'em Sock'em Robots style]]''.
* Speaking of ''Unleashed'''s final boss, Chip's super awkward grunts deserve a mention.
* Come to think of it, anything Chip says during the final fight is just awkward and pretty narmy.
* Whenever the Werehog dies by fall damage or [[SuperDrowningSkills water]], he lets out a scream of bloody murder, which is very capable of being Narm. To elaborate, whenever he falls off of a high place, after a certain point you suddenly hear a [[JumpScare startlingly]] loud "[[https://youtu.be/ifdcZ6DUo8c?t=8s AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH]]!!!" from the Werehog.

[[folder: ''Sonic Forces'']]
* ''VideoGame/SonicForces'' treats itself more seriously than previous games, meaning a lot of potential Narm. In particular, there's the part where Sonic was apparently tortured for ''6 months'' after being captured, yet is still as cheerful and snarky as ever, with no visible physical or mental repercussions.
* When Eggman expresses disbelief at Sonic managing to [[spoiler:escape Null Space]], Sonicís response is so ridiculously on-the-nose that it sounds like something [[Film/CoolCatSavesTheKids a certain other anthropomorphic character]] would say.
-->Maybe by myself, but I had a little help from my friend. Something you wouldnít understand, since you donít have any friends!
* Eggman's plan to destroy the Resistance is to [[spoiler:have Infinite create and drop a sun on them]]. It's so over-the-top it becomes silly; further still, this threat is dispelled after one level and is never brought up again.
** Even worse is the Avatar stage that deals with this. Cue rather literal lyrics singing about how [[spoiler:the sun is falling from the sky and that the final battle has begun]]. There's a reason why people consider situational lyrics to be extremely cheesy, but this is overdoing it even for ''Sonic'' standards!
* Silver continues his run at hilarious lines with this gem:
-->'''Silver''': I'm an optimist, but i'm also a realist.
** After saying this, he presumes that Sonic is dead (even though he was taken alive), and Tails has gone insane (even though heís clearly fine). [[SarcasmMode Like any optimist would.]]
* The fact that Sonic and the Custom Character [[spoiler:managed to escape Null Space just by '''''running really damn fast''''']].
* Episode Shadow gives us [[spoiler:Infinite's breakdown after Shadow effortlessly defeats him. His repeated statement of him saying he's not weak, followed up by his overdramatic gestures, and his final scream renders the whole thing hilarious]].
** On the topic of [[spoiler:Infinite's breakdown: the mere fact that his entire motivation for becoming who he is is ''the fact that Shadow beat him up and called him weak.'' With that context he seems less like an intimidating villain and more like a pathetic child throwing the mother of all tantrums.]]
* When Sonic gets trapped in [[spoiler:Null Space]], he talks about heading back in such a casual way that it sounds like he's more confused than alarmed by the situation.
* Knuckles delivers a line that would be laughed off in a story about UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar, let alone a ''Sonic'' game.
-->'''Knuckles''': (''in response to "Oh man, that's not good."'') None of this is good, Vector. That's why it's called "war."
* During a large battle sequence in the war, everyone gets to visibly beat the crap out of opponents, even if it's just a single hit per character. Then Amy comes in with her Piko-Piko Hammer and slams an enemy with it... [[ViolenceDiscretionShot just off-camera.]] Apparently it's fine to punch people in the face or with a stinger, but visibly hitting them with a weapon is a big no-no. The same applies to the RedShirt Resistance members, who never once visibly hit a single thing with their FamilyFriendlyFirearms, and yet it's perfectly fine for ''Infinite to kill them with explosions in front of them'', [[PGExplosives Power Rangers-style.]]
** Worse yet, [[spoiler:[[UnexplainedRecovery Omega]] appears to pull off a BigDamnHeroes]] and shoots at Infinite for three seconds. Not only do they basically do nothing on-screen for the rest of the game, not even getting a chance to shoot any other enemies, but [[spoiler:Eggman's sun plan]] happens immediately afterwards, completely making their appearance moot. And yet Rouge ''still'' pulls a LampshadeHanging about it as if it was some big moment in the ending.
* The fact that [[TheGoomba the Egg Pawns]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffhazsPkbq4 don't attack Sonic at all in the first levels]]. They do in later stages, but they're still pathetically ineffective, and then you remember that Eggman conquered the world with those things as his foot soldiers.
* The very ending of the game has a couple of big moments. [[spoiler:Classic Sonic fading away is presented as like he is dying or something, and Tails telling him "You'll always be our shining hope." is just so sappy, and unintentionally meta considering how ''Mania'' has been received compared to ''Forces''. Sonic's little speech about fixing the damage Eggman has done could qualify, but lands in more of NarmCharm considering these types of speeches have been given before, such as in ''Adventure 2''. Just like that game, though, Tails' response completely ruins the moment, and in this particular case it is completely out-of-character. His response? Saying "True dat." like he's trying to be some sort of hip street kid or something!]]
** Speaking of speeches, [[spoiler: Tails' speech in the final cutscene about working together to restore the world can only be taken seriously, if he did anything noteworthy in the game, which he did not. He did little to help Sonic in the initial bout with Infinite, he wasn't working with anyone other than Classic Sonic for a while, and he let Classic Sonic pretty much the entirety of the work. Not to mention, the speech sounds so dramatic that it's almost as if he was practicing that speech for a good while.]]

* Rouge the Bat in every appearance, especially for her... [[JigglePhysics bouncing...]] In her first appearance, half of us were busy laughing at how unrealistically she moved; the other half found it... interesting.
* The 3DS version of ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'' attempts to convey the plot of the console versions to the best of its ability. Emphasis on "attempts." There had to be a better way to convey destroying Eggman's robots or making a HeroicSacrifice than having 3D models slide past what appear to be ''trading cards''.
** The face Classic Sonic makes when he's surprised. He just stands there with a gaping mouth, wide-eyed (keep in mind Sonic's two pupil, one eyeball design) stare.
** The battle the two Sonics are supposed to have with Eggman before the final boss is butchered in this version. The game portrays the battle with still images, cheap visual effects, and text boxes. It gets especially confusing when Tails enters the fight.
* The most narmful moment in the console/PC version of ''Sonic Generations'' has to be Modern Sonic's parting words to Classic Sonic: "Enjoy your future! [[PolygonCeiling It's]] [[DorkAge gonna]] [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 be]] [[BrokenBase great!]]"
--> '''Many players:''' Don't listen to him, Sonic.
* ''[[VideoGame/SonicStorybookSeries Sonic and the Secret Rings]]'' gives us Erazor Djinn's final form: Alf Layla Wa Layla, mainly its voice. It's meant to sound echoey and distorted to show how powerful he's become, but the effect used for it is just awful. He ends up sounding like a demonic chipmunk as opposed to a monstrous abomination.
* In ''VideoGame/SonicShuffle'', Lumina and Void's constant angsting.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ky_HXf3PH9Q&t=8m20s This gem]] near the end of the game.
--> '''Void:''' You don't need me? Then... Why was I... '''''[[ChewingTheScenery BOOOAAARRRUUUGGGHHHNNURRRRRRRRRGH?]]'''''
** The above is made even better when you see that the weird black light he emanates as he begins to go OneWingedAngel is shown coming out of his ''crotch''.
* The memetically dark line from [[VideoGame/SonicLostWorld Zor]], [[MoodWhiplash "I long for Death's cold embrace."]]
* Also from ''Lost World'', there's Zazz's line "I DREAM ABOUT [[AccidentalInnuendo POUNDING HIS SORRY BLUE BUTT!]]", which many fans found, uh, ''[[DoubleEntendre distracting]]'', to say the least.
* [[spoiler:Emerl's]] death in ''Anime/SonicX'' is an very emotional scene except for the fact in the Japanese version, at one point Cheese's crying sounds like a squeaky toy.
* Seeing [[TheScrappy Big the Cat]] show up in anything past his missions in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure''. Those who've grown accustomed to his SimpletonVoice and irritatingly slow movement won't help but involuntarily chuckle whenever he shows up even in dramatic moments.
* ''[[VideoGame/SonicStorybookSeries Sonic and the Black Knight]]'' has some spectacular moments of this too. In that game, when the characters die by a bottomless pit/lava, most of them simply yell or grunt. Most of them are not Lancelot/Shadow, who screams this with the most hilarious delivery:
--> '''Lancelot/Shadow:''' I HAVE FAILED!!
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NL50_W_mgU The Sonic 25th Anniversary Party.]] Those who had to watch the event on stream had to deal with audio issues through out the most part of it (one segment where the host began to talk about the future plans for Sonic was left entirely mute because of the audio issues) and video quality problems. Apart from that, the event was filled with awkward and cringeworthy moments. The event will probably go down in history as one of the most unintentionally hilarious gaming events ever.
* In a refreshing change of pace, ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' has almost no Narm. One notable exception however is Super Sonic's idle pose, which has him tensing his muscles and vibrating intensely.
