* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQsV2wqOniU South Island]], that is all.
** "Look-alike" has somewhat confusing lyrics but the song itself is great and deliciously 90s.
* BaseBreakingCharacter: People basically either [[EnsembleDarkhorse love]] or [[TheScrappy hate]] Sara.
* CultClassic: Has a notable reputation as most [[SoOkayItsAverage amazingly adequate]] video game movie of all time (yes, [[VideoGameMoviesSuck that's a compliment]])! It's sustaining popularity since going out of print has earned it hefty prices on Amazon and [=eBay=].
* EarWorm: The whole soundtrack.
-->[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5w0lDYPQvw "On a Sunday, riding my bike, I notice, I notice, many things that look alike..."]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Considering the [[TheScrappy reaction towards]] the ''other'' [[InterspeciesRomance humanoid girl to crush on Sonic]] [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 in the franchise]], Sara's popularity is almost HilariousInHindsight.
** Metal Sonic, much like in the games.
** Old Man Owl has his share of fans too.
* EvilIsCool: Hyper Metal Sonic, of course. The silent robot, who matches Sonic in skills.
* HilariousInHindsight: Sara looks an ''awful'' lot like [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Aerith Gainsborough]].
* MemeticMutation:
** '''SHUT UP, TAILS!'''
** '''YOU MIGHT KNOW EVERYTHING I'M GOING TO DO, BUT THAT'S NOT GOING TO HELP YOU SINCE I KNOW EVERYTHING ''YOU'RE'' GOING TO DO!!! STRAAANGE, ISN'T IT!?!? GRRRRRRRAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!'''
** "AAH! I'M AFRAID OF LIGHTNING!" When Tails says this, it sounds like he's saying "[[{{Mondegreen}} I'm a pretty lady!!]]"
** Old Man Owl, specifically, this [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-uZVhtG5hlpU/Tj0lKC1FGyI/AAAAAAABjEU/LY6ZzP8c1G4/s1600/1312571167828.jpg gem]]
** There is only one Sonic. REPEAT AD NAUSEAUM.
** '''MY HAT'S ON FIRE!'''
* {{Narm}}: The English dub is generally considered this, especially for fans who are used to the main ''Sonic'' voice actors. Sonic is miscasted with [[WhatTheHellIsThatAccent a very odd sounding voice]], and Tails sounds like he has a bad, ''''BAD'''' head cold. Most of the acting is very flat, too.
* TearJerker: Metal Sonic's [[spoiler:death.]]
--> '''Metal''': There is only ''one'' Sonic...
* VideoGameMoviesSuck: A notable aversion. This is by no means regarded as a great movie and the dub voices are passable at best, but the plot and characterization are faithful enough to the spirit of the Genesis games, and exciting in their own right. And while the animation is generally considered to be sub-par, the setting and overall visual aesthetic are great matches for ''Sonic''. Its use of human characters is also applauded over games like ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' and ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'', preferring to use demi-humans on an Earthlike planet that is explicitly not Earth, compared to those games having perfectly standard humans (other than Dr. Robotnik) on our planet. The [[SoOkayItsAverage just okay]] at worst quality is such a rarity in video game movies that [[ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars this is considered an impressive achievement]].
