Trivia: Knuckles Chaotix

  • Fan Nickname: "Wechnia", for the Dummied Out character called "**********" by the game, because he appears as a glitched, white Knuckles. Research on the game's prototypes eventually revealed he actually was Tails.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The game has never seen a re-release outside of GameTap for a brief period, and it's unlikely to get another one anytime soon.
  • What Could Have Been: There is evidence that this was originally going to be the cancelled title, Sonic Crackers. More specifically, the ring tether mechanic was present in a working form and the animations used for Mighty are very clearly drawn over Sonic's animations from the Crackers proof-of-concept (he even has the same Wheel o' Feet effect despite his primary character trait being his strength). Furthermore, the level music from Sonic Crackers had become the game's leitmotif.
    • It was originally going to be included in Sonic Gems Collection at one point, but was dropped, probably because of issues emulating the 32X. However, an entire mini-gallery of art from the game was included in the Museum.
    • One beta screenshot of the title screen implied that Espio was supposed to be the main character or a major player of the game, with Knuckles just tagging along.
    • An early working title for the game, proven by a beta screenshot, was Knuckles' Ring Star.
