YMMV / Sonic the Comic Online!

  • Broken Base:
    • The comic itself. It's either an awesome continuation of the original comic or a shoddy attempt at continuing the story.
    • Tekno, more particularly her Sanity Slippage, received an especially mixed reception from fans. Some enjoy the Darker and Edgier feel while others feel it's out-of-character and loathe her killing Set. That could be a reason why the writers brought him back. But thankfully as of issue 274, Tekno and Shorty have been re-railed into the characters people like.
  • Complete Monster:
    • In this Fan Web Comic that has received Approval of God, Dr. Zachary once again proves himself among the comic's nastiest. Zachary begins his new streak of evil by attempting to enslave Super Sonic to utilize his powers to wreak havoc across Mobius. Quickly cheated of that, Zachary builds up an alliance of like-minded psychopaths he calls The Syndicate and quickly builds a new plot to destroy Mobius utilizing the Chaos Emeralds. Snatching some of Sonic's DNA by capturing his young companion Tails and nearly drowning him, Zachary awakens the dormant Shadow the Hedgehog and uses his powers to draw the Chaos Emeralds out of the Special Zone, consequentially creating a massive chain reaction of Chaos Energy that obliterates the Special Zone and the billions of lives within. Brushing off the death of the Special Zone as a mere side effect of his plans, Zachary attempts to use a device he calls the Chaos Siphon to agitate the Chaos Energy on Mobius to the point where it causes an explosion potent enough to destroy the planet. Eventually foiled and captured by Knuckles, Zachary contents himself with sadistically mocking Knuckles about his failure to protect the Special Zone, and upon breaking out, forces Knuckles into a Sadistic Choice to either allow his friend Tikal to die or let the Floating Island collapse. A total sociopath as always who is utterly remorseless over the billions of lives lost to his machinations, Zachary proves he's no less of a monster here than he was in the original comic.
    • Vichama note  starts as an enigmatic flunky of Zachary enlisted in The Syndicate before revealing himself as something far worse. Vichama is in actuality the sadistic God of Death, an immortal entity who gained access to the physical plane through a deal with Pochacamac, using his new presence on Mobius to indiscriminately slaughter millions of echidnas. Trapping the souls of all of his murdered victims within his dark temple before he was banished, Vichama is brought back by Zachary and at first eagerly helps the doctor in his plot to destroy Mobius, helping to obliterate the Special Zone by proxy. Once Zachary's plot is foiled, Vichama leaves the doctor to die before rising his temple again and causing mass death through Mobius, assuming his true form as the God of Death. Casually incinerating Knuckles when he's confronted on his plot, Vichama announces his intent to bring the "gift of death" to everything that lives within the universe through all the enslaved souls in his thrall. Cloaking his murderous nature with a posh demeanor, Vichama is motivated by nothing less than a desire to spread mass death for its own sake and proves to be an utter bastard of a god who more than lives up to his title as the God of Death.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome:
  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: Considering how much hell Sonic went through in the recent panels, and the Freedom Fighters (sans Tails) coming off no better than Sonic originally was, after the smear campaign was said and done, it can be very easy to want Super Sonic to just burn the world into the ground already. Not helping things was how long the issues are coming out.
    • Thankfully lately, while his name has yet to be cleared out, it has been show more and more people are showing doubts about Sonic really being a criminal.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: One-off character Turbo, who was essentially an alien version of Sonic, made a return.
  • Heartwarming Moments:
    • In issue 261, Tails gets a parcel that he must deliver. He goes through one of the most work filled days he ever has, with Rouge stealing the thing, taking down a Tar Titan, and going back home in order to save his people from something. When he gets back, it's revealed that the parcel was a birthday cake for Sonic.
    • In issue 272, Sonic hopes that Amy was able to see his fight against Robotnik. Remember that Amy now hates Sonic ever since he "betrayed" the Freedom Fighters.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Sonic's a dick but even he doesn't deserve some of the stuff that happens to him.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Shortfuse, the original series pointless and despised Creator's Pet, is far less despised here.
  • Strawman Has a Point: While they were definitely assholes about it, the Kane Network's smear campaign against Sonic does have several valid points.
  • The Woobie: It's kinda hard not to feel for Grimer in issue 240
