YMMV: Sonic For Hire
  • Angst? What Angst?: Mario seems to be more upset that Luigi died in Season 2, as it was a motive for him gathering his friends to kill Sonic, but in Season 6, he doesn't seem fazed when Soniqua spits fire at Luigi.
    • Lucca doesn't seem upset when her Epoch is destroyed in the near-ending of Season 6, and lets Tails and his friends to borrow the other time machines with no problem.
  • Awesome Music: The 16-bit rendition of Song 2 by blur that plays during Sonic and Tails' fight.
    • Gangnam Style's 16-bit rendition. Played in one episode where Tails keeps on listening to it and played in another episode when Sonic and the gang minus Tails have a party with Eggman-mutated Zerg...
      • It also plays VERY briefly in the timeline where Gilius Thunderhead takes Sonic's identity.
    • Don't forget about the rendition of "Here I Go Again" by Whitesnake. Sure, it only plays for 10 seconds (thus making it a Long Song, Short Scene situation) but if you listen to it in full on Mike Monk's soundcloud then you'll know what I'm talking about.
    • And Push It To The Limit.
    • And their rendition of Joe Esposito's "You're the Best" during "This Can't Be Good".
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Tails has been bullying Sonic a bit in Season 4, but he sends in a freaking bomb just for no reason at all.
    • Sonic killed Crash Bandicoot in a way similar to Taken, and then asks him if he did a good job imitating it, WHILE Crash was still being tortured.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Soniqua
  • Flanderization: Eggman has suffered some Flanderization in the series, mainly due to his food obsession, which is heavily shown in Seasons 5 and 6.
  • Freud Was Right: The New Kirby looks suspiciously similar to a penis, as pointed out by Tails and implied by Sonic for Hire's Facebook Page. Then you think about Kirby's signature Power Copying and how he may've had to get that job...
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Sonic jumping from game to game trying to find a job there seems like a fun concept ... funnier that a Disney movie that came out about two years after the series involves going into new games and trying to find a new "job" in them. Sonic usually screws them up though. Sonic even encounters Wreck-it Ralph in Season 7, but Sonic is upset at him because he wouldn't let him stay, but it was because Sonic fucked his sister ... who looked exactly like him with pigtails .
  • It's Short, so It Sucks : Some people think the episodes are way too short. Lampshaded by Sonic in one particular episode.
    Sonic: Ok, I know this episode was shorter than usual but I might die next week! Doesn't that mean anything to you?! Jerks!
  • Jerkass Woobie: You've got to feel bad for Sonic in Season 4... after Tails screwed him over. Let's see... he was trying to be nice to him at Burger Time, but Tails threw a shake at Sonic.
    • He also ran over Elliot when Sonic was helping him build E.T's phone leading to Sonic getting arrested.
      • Its also said in the first episode that Tails knew Sonic would lose all his money in Dreamcast and gave him the stock tip in the first place.
    Tails: Lets not get into all the details about who purposely screwed who out of all their money.
  • Jumping the Shark: Some people thought this when Sonic took over Mario's mafia, thus eliminating the point of the title. That changed in Season 4 though.
  • Memetic Mutation: Coke on Tits!
  • Moral Event Horizon: Parodied when Mario destroys Sonic's Dominque Wilkins poster.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Some people thought Season 3 like this.
    • Some people don't like how much of a prick Tails has become in Season 4.
      • Tails even pointed out how he didn't really like that phase in Season 7.
    • Some people think that the time traveling alongside most of the episodes not being based on an older game are "too different" for Season 6.
  • The Scrappy: Tails when he Took a Level in Jerkass in Season 4.
    • Take That, Scrappy!: The opening of Season 5 is basically a huge one for Tails. Sonic punches him several times, neither Peppy nor Slippy have heard of Cash Explosion, and when he assumes that he'll be taking charge of the Star Fox Peppy outright says no and picks Sonic instead.
      • The next episode ups it further by making Tails being attacked by a number of Facehuggers, ending with a Chestburster coming out of him. And later on in the Starcraft episode where they all leave him holding up a wall while Eggman-mutated Zerg and the gang have a party.
  • Ugly Cute: Soniqua
  • What an Idiot: Gilius Thunderhead. By far.
