I have a problem with this entry.

* Throw It In / Woolseyism The cutscenes script for the Wii version was handled by the writers of Happy Tree Friends, and you can pretty much tell that they were having a lot of fun doing the cutscenes.

First of all, it doesn't mention any examples of Throw It In. Second, the game was written by American writers, which the entry mentions, but by definition, there can be no Woolseyisms in the English script because it was in English to begin with. I think this should be deleted. Anyone agree/disagree?

Yeah, I agree, unless there's some major difference in the Japanese script worth mentioning.

There was the Shout-Out to Kamen Rider, but I dunno if that really counts.

I think it would be good to separate Eggman's PA quotes from actual trvia. What do you guys think?

Considering the voice change, I wonder who Tikal's new voice is considerng she is not in Colors or Riders?
Komodin
10:11:47 AM Feb 25th 2011
That's assuming she'll ever show up again...
miru
02:37:53 PM Feb 25th 2011
She will most likely be in the anniversary game. I'm hoping for Tara Strong or Yeardley Smith.
Komodin
02:41:19 PM Feb 25th 2011
Um, no.
miru
10:19:15 AM Feb 27th 2011

What Could Have Been: Wave The Swallow and Tikal the Whatever were originally on the DS version, but got cut, as evidenced by the Wii save file names. Tikal would have been on Sweet Mountain, and Wave on Asteroid Coaster.
Komodin
10:19:21 AM Feb 14th 2011
... What?
miru
10:23:14 AM Feb 14th 2011
When you sve your game, it has all of the DS character names, as well as the above duo. These may have originally been in but got cut.
Komodin
10:40:09 AM Feb 14th 2011
Uh, that's... rather flimsy logic, Miru.
SonicLover
10:42:34 AM Feb 14th 2011
Do you have an alternate explanation?
miru
11:18:04 AM Feb 14th 2011
The DS version has evey reccoring good or neutral character exept Tikal and the babylons.
Komodin
11:19:22 AM Feb 14th 2011
miru
11:25:53 AM Feb 14th 2011
They're all in cameos.
Komodin
11:42:02 AM Feb 14th 2011
Yes. That doesn't mean that Tikal and the Babylon Rogues were "originally" suppose to appear in this game.
SonicLover
01:33:04 PM Feb 14th 2011
What else could it mean?
Komodin
01:39:25 PM Feb 14th 2011
Predetermined name choices with references to various other Sonic titles.
SonicLover
01:55:52 PM Feb 14th 2011
Okay. But miru also said this:
Tikal would have been on Sweet Mountain, and Wave on Asteroid Coaster.
Komodin
02:01:38 PM Feb 14th 2011
Considering he hasn't provided any actual proof of that, I see no reason to believe him.
miru
02:24:58 PM Feb 14th 2011
The Sweet Mountain and Asteroid Coaster things were my predictions, considering their personality.
Komodin
02:26:09 PM Feb 14th 2011
So... no actual proof. Got it.
miru
02:28:10 PM Feb 14th 2011
Other than the random save names. Has anyone hacked the DS version?
Komodin
02:43:51 PM Feb 14th 2011
Other than the random save names

Again, no actual proof.

Is the Game Breaker entry really accurate? The consensus I've seen on other boards is that that feature makes it harder-to-impossible to get an S-Rank the majority of levels, since it disables all Wisp powers, barring you access to large chunks of bonuses as a result.

Is the ad the new page quote refers to an actual official ad for Sonic Colors or just a parody? Because if it's the latter, we shouldn't quote it without identifying its proper source. And it reeks of parody; it would be very unlike any self-respecting company to take that particular angle with its advertisements.
SonicLover
11:40:19 AM Dec 28th 2010
...Never mind, it got removed.
Komodin
11:59:13 AM Dec 28th 2010
For the record, it's a parody ad. Sega's guilty of many things, but if there's one thing they would never do, it's using what would've been such a self-deprecating ad to promote their games.
Carls493
12:42:23 PM Dec 28th 2010
Agreed. Sega, among other companies, are guilty of certain things, but even they wouldn't stoop so low to put down their own games. That's lacking in self-confidence.
SonicLover
12:47:44 PM Dec 28th 2010
"Certain things"... you know what, I'm probably better off not pressing further.

Apropos of nothing:

For obvious reasons (untranslatable humor), the Japanese script of the game differs significantly from the one used in the West. A lot of the jokes manage to survive the transition, but some of them didn't:

  • The infamous "cheeseburger" exchange is replaced with petty bickering about work hours.
  • Cubot's voice chip is stuck on Samurai instead of Cowboy.
  • Some of Tails' mistranslations.
    • Yacker initially seems to be talking about baseball instead of being from "a faraway soda."
    • Several instances of The Vodka Is Good But The Meat Is Rotten are replaced with extended puns.
      • English: "They're either being used for their magical powers by an evil man, or to make underwear to be worn by salad."
      • Japanese: "Either an evil person is stealing his energy, or someone's sprinkled chives on his doughnut." (An Incredibly Lame Pun in Japanese, just trust me on that one.)
    • The joke about "Hypergo-on power" translating as "horrible body odor" is replaced with something about an underarm mole, probably because Sega didn't want to have to find another explanation for that particular animation (Sonic examining his armpit).
    • I will give them credit, though: Higetamago is a good translation of Baldy McNosehair. Not quite as insulting, but still amusingly childish.

I'm sure there's a trope for this, but damned if I remember what it is.

Unless you know a trope to apply to both games, please specify which version the trope in question refers to.

The bosses, for the most part, are the same in both versions. I'm going to delete the "The Cameo" trope entry on the page.

I propose there be separate tabs for the DS and Wii versions.
Carls493
01:16:58 PM Nov 23rd 2010
Do we have enough specific tropes for both versions for that to happen?
RegiRuler
01:25:33 PM Nov 23rd 2010
edited by RegiRuler
I believe so. A major example would be the Giant space flee from nowhere trope for the DS version, I also believe that Captain Jelly and Admiral Jelly (DS only) are the same boss, and therefore would be a Recurring Boss.

Proposing a Trivia.SonicColors page, to highlight the tropes present in all of Eggman's PA chatter. Who Writes This Crap?!, Blatant Lies, Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick, and so forth.
Komodin

Hmm, with that piece of information coupled with that scene in Asteroid Coaster where Sonic and Tails discover the Wisp Conversion Factory, one could make the case about the Nega-Wisps being Woobies. A second opinion would be most appreciated before we add it to the work page, though.

I've replaced the logo image with an image that better illustrates some of the features of the game. If anyone can find a better, however, they're more than free to replace the current image.
