* OriginStory: The third volume has an unrelated illustrated text story called "Story Gaiden", which tells of a fictional real-world origin for Sonic. An AcePilot named Henry dies after breaking the sound barrier, but Chuck Yeager keeps his flight jacket, which has a blue hedgehog emblem on it, as a memento. Other pilots begin adopting the emblem, and eventually Sonic comes alive, seemingly as a reincarnation of Henry, after saving his daughter Meg from a fire accident. While largely ignored by Sega, this story influenced Sonic and Tails being pilots in the games, was adapted to American audiences [[https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Sonic_the_Hedgehog_Technical_Files#The_Background_Story:_Sonic.27s_Origin as a bonus for]] a limited edition of ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' and is sometimes mentioned by the founding fathers of Sonic Team.

* SpoiledByTheMerchandise: The manga reveals the big twist that there's Labyrinth Zone act after Scrap Brain Zone, albeit by largely adapting Scrap Brain out, moving the entire Labyrinth to be after it and not portraying the actual final boss of the game. Other oddities include Sonic fighting the spiked Eggmobile from Spring Yard in Star Light instead.

Added DiffLines:

* RollingAttack: It's Sonic. This manga and its follow-ups had a trend of giving him several variations for his spin moves which he called out anytime he used them.


Added DiffLines:

* SlasherSmile: Sonic sure looks a bit more threatening with fangs on. Like in the first volume when he jumps at Eggman's face with a mischievous DeathGlare and peels his Eggmobile off like an orange.
