Trivia / Tails' Skypatrol

  • Absentee Actor: This is one of a handful games in the franchise where both Sonic and Eggman are completely absent. Tails is the only regular appearing, and all of the other characters are unique to this game. Sonic and Eggman are only mentioned in passing in the manual (and Tails uncovered Witchcart's plot in the first place because he assumed the islands rail like system was a new scheme being set up by Eggman).
  • Ascended Fanon: Witchcart's first name in the Archie Comics, Wendy, is taken from Wendy Witchcart, a Fan Nickname with Added Alliterative Appeal that circulated online.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Rail Canyon would later become the name of an (unrelated) stage in Sonic Heroes.
  • No Export for You: Prior to being included in Sonic Adventure DX and Sonic Gems Collection, the latter of which mercifully grants a save state feature, making the game much more feasible to win.
