YMMV: Sonic World Adventure Rush
- Alternate Character Interpretation: Is Mephiles the Dark really Satan in disguise, the Christian analogue to Islam's Ibliss? Is he the Ambiguously Gay lover to Ibliss, like some interpretations of his namesake? Is he a mere servant to Ibliss' Evil Plan? Or is he the true Big Bad mastermind?
- Ambiguously Gay: Given Mephiles' effeminate actions in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), and certain interpretations of his namesake, it is implied that he is this.
- Draco in Leather Pants: Some may still view Mephiles as this.
- Older Than They Think: The idea of teaming Nack the Weasel with Bean and Bark was planned long before Team Hooligan appeared in the comics. Not that anyone would believe that.
