* 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]] Sera.
* 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..."]]
* EvilIsCool: Hyper Metal Sonic, of course. The silent robot, who matches Sonic in skills.
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Considering the [[TheScrappy reaction towards]] the ''other'' [[InterspeciesRomance humanoid girl to crush on Sonic]] [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 in the franchise]], Sera's popularity is almost HilariousInHindsight.
** Metal Sonic, much like the in games.
** Old Man Owl has his share of fans too.
* MemeticMutation:
** '''SHUT UP, TAILS!'''
** '''YOU MAY KNOW EVERYTHING I'M GOING TO DO, BUT THAT'S NOT GOING TO HELP YOU BECAUSE I KNOW EVERYTHING ''YOU'RE'' GOING TO DO!!! STRAAANGE, ISN'T IT!?!?'''
** "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... sort of. This is by no means regarded as a great movie and the dub voice is passable at best, but the plot and characterization are faithful enough to the spirit of the Genesis games, and exciting in their own right. However, the consensus that [[SoOkayItsAverage it's just okay]] and not especially bad is such a rarity in video game movies that [[ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars this is considered an impressive achievement]]. And while the film doesn't follow any previous cannon, aspects of it (Metal Sonic, Tails' airplane) were popular enough to be used in future ''Sonic'' games.
