* SpannerInTheWorks: Commented on in-universe: Mammoth Mogul has realized that for whatever reason, he can't beat Sonic, so he'll stay out of the way until Sonic dies. Eggman worked himself out of his insanity once he realized this, likening it to an unpredictable element in any experiment. He's rationalized that Sonic has ''become'' an element of chaos because of all the chaos energy he's been exposed to over the years.

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Unlike most female Sonic characters, Sally used to wear nothing but an open vest and boots -- an amount of clothing [[PantslessMalesFullyDressedFemales usually limited to males]] -- long before the reboot. She now wears a full outfit consisting of a black undershirt and blue shorts in addition to the classic blue [now closed] vest and boots.

* OurNudityIsDifferent: Unlike all of the female Sonic characters, Sally wore nothing but an open vest and boots long before the reboot. Subverted since then as she is now fully clothed; black undershirt, blue shorts, and the classic blue [closed] vest and boots.



* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Sally is the heroic tomboy to Fiona Fox's villainous girly girl. Sally is a TomboyPrincess who has a very unfeminine appearance, and is a character especially divergent from stereotypes associated with females. Fiona does have a pretty rough attitude and her appearance isn't completely girly, but the bow and skirt still make it more so than Sally's. Also, Fiona is a FemmeFatale and TheVamp who uses her feminine charms to manipulate male characters like Tails, much to the annoyance and disgust of Sally, who once gave Fiona a violent gut punch for doing this.

Added DiffLines:

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: After dealing with Silver's WindmillCrusade escapades at a ''very'' difficult time for the Freedom Fighter group, Sonic hits RageBreakingPoint and violently warns him to stay the hell away from them. This proved not to be an isolated outburst either, when Silver later appears to make amends, a disgusted Sonic still threatens him until the others convince him to listen. Given this is the guy who was laid back enough to reevaluate his grudges against ''Eggman'', it's telling Sonic does ''not'' take idle accusations towards his friends well.


* SuddenSexuality: Her relationship with Nicole in the reboot gets [[LesYay much closer than usual]], despite the fact that before that, the two had always had more of a sisterly relationship.

Added DiffLines:

* UptownGuy: The planned Sonic Universe 95 (of which the pencils were released online and fans refined it to make it a full color comic) reveals Antoine's family has lived in a castle for generations. This is definitely more upper class than Bunnie's background as an orphan found by Rosie and Uncle Chuck.


* VagueAge: Averted at first but later played straight. Sonic celebrates a birthday at one point relatively early in the series, where he is explicitly said to be 16. Later comics, however, has quietly done away with this by also showing Sonic occasionally celebrating his birthday, but have himself and his friends attending the party be deliberately vague about his age. Sonic even makes [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall a pointed comment about this]], by asking his friends just to think of him as [[NotAllowedToGrowUp being in his teens "forever".]]

Both Silver and Mina earned a particularly vicious and long lasting grudge for doing so, and even then were never ''quite'' fully forgiven prior to the reboot.
