--->'''Eggman''': To all the fools who dare defy me, particularly those under the leadership of a certain Echidna, I have only one thing to say: ''YOUR '''HERO''' IS DEAD! YOUR '''HOPE''' IS DEAD! '''I''' AM YOUR ONE, '''TRUE''' MASTER! LET THIS BE A LESSON TO ALL!!

* EvenEvilHasStandards: For all of his villainy, it's stated that Eggman WouldntHurtAChild, especially not one of his own family. When he accidentally bruises Omelette's wrist in a fit of rage, Omelette [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness instantly realizes something's wrong with him]].

* AdaptationalBadass:
** [[spoiler:The Phantom King. In the game, it was no harder than the average final boss despite being able to hurt Super Sonic. In here, he's capable of outright ''curb-stomping'' Super Sonic and displays powers he didn't have in the game. If it wasn't for Eggman's help, he would've killed Sonic.]]
** In Episode Shadow, Infinite was no match for Shadow before gaining the Phantom Ruby and was completely curb-stomped in a straight fight. [[spoiler:When they face off in ''Prelude to War'', he puts up a much better fight, even giving Shadow a cut on the cheek with his sword and forcing him to fight seriously for a moment, though he still loses]].

* AbusiveParents: Infinite is [[spoiler:revealed to have had an abusive father, and it's mentioned in the first chapter that the scar on his face was given to him when they had a fight. Chapter 5 reveals that his father beat him regularly and put him through TrainingFromHell beginning at age four, and when said father killed his mother when she tried to stop one beating, Infinite snapped and murdered him with his own sword.]]
* DontMakeMeDestroyYou: When he fights the Jackal Squad, Shadow repeatedly urges them to tell him where Eggman is and just walk away. When they refuse and attack him, Shadow gives in and takes them out with a Chaos Blast.
-->'''Shadow''': I warned you to stay out of my way. You should've listened.
* EyeScream: In chapter 5, [[spoiler:Shadow blows up Infinite's gun with a Chaos Spear. The shrapnel from the explosion hits him in the right eye and takes it out]].
* ImADoctorNotAPlaceholder: In chapter 6, Zero is understandably furious that Eggman didn't warn them about Shadow and his Chaos Powers. Eggman retorts that he had no way of knowing Shadow would appear to begin with:
-->'''Eggman''': I'm a scientist, not a fortune teller!
* SkipTheAnesthetic: When Zero agrees to undergo the surgery to bond the Phantom Ruby to him, he refuses to take any anesthetic when Eggman offers it, despite Eggman's warnings that it would be incredibly painful.
-->'''Zero''': Let me tell you something about pain, doc. Pain and I are old friends. I was captured by enemy soldiers while on a mission in Shamar. For a whole week, the bastards tortured me, did everything I could to get me to talk. But I never broke. Point is, there's nothing you could do to me that hasn't been done already.
