* DevelopmentHell: A third season was announced [[BreakingTheFourthWall by Dr. Eggman in the second season finale]]. However, no further information was revealed after that, and the show was pulled from Boomerang a year later. Since then, Sega has devoted more time to ''VideoGame/SonicMania Adventures'' and [[Film/SonicTheHedgehog2020 the upcoming film adaptation]], leading many to suspect Sega never had a third season of ''Sonic Boom'' in mind.

* CreatorKiller: ''Narrowly'' averted for Big Red Button. After ''Rise of Lyric'', a large amount of Big Red Button's staff left (or rather, they reportedly were ''fired'') several months before release, the critical savaging of the game (32 out of 100 "generally unfavorable reviews" on Metacritic and 33.15% on [=GameRankings=]), combined with embarrassingly low sales for a premiere franchise at 620,000 copies in 2015, made it seem like it'd be the first and last game they'll create. But it was later revealed that those that managed to stay on switched over to mobile and VR games, keeping them afloat for the time being. If they ever get back into the console market is still up in the air though, but least they're surviving.


** Creator/SanzaruGames however may have not have been so lucky, having also suffered the effects of the poor sales in the long term, with ''both'' their 3DS games selling poorly, and getting mixed-to-negative reception. The fact that they refused to make a sequel to ''VideoGame/SlyCooperThievesInTime'', which angered fans of ''that'' franchise due to the massive cliffhanger, may have also played a part, but the games' sales did absolutely nothing to help. Their only work in gaming since ''Rise of Lyric'' was helping to finish ''VideoGame/SpyroReignitedTrilogy'', which they didn't get away with unscratched either for removing Ba'ah's unique hatch animation.


* TrollingCreator: The creator of the show is very much aware how dead (and mostly unavailable) Boomerang is to many that the ratings are pretty low...so he takes ''advantage'' of it by getting way too many philosophical conversations and one too many GettingCrapPastTheRadar because he knows very well not many children will get it (since not many can normally see the show anyway) and he can ''get away with it all''. This has gone on to making the show very much infamous and enjoyable.

Added DiffLines:

** Creator/RogerCraigSmith, Creator/TravisWillingham, Creator/CindyRobinson, Creator/NikaFutterman, and Creator/MikePollock all return to reprise their respective roles for Sonic, Knuckles, Amy, Sticks, and Eggman. Creator/KirkThornton and Creator/WallyWingert also return as Orbot and Cubot.
** For Mike Pollock, he doubles down on this trope since he also voiced Eggman in ''Anime/SonicX''.

* GenreKiller: ''Rise of Lyric'' was the first attempt at a more exploration-based ''Sonic'' game since ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed''... and considering the game's reception, very likely the last as well. Notably, Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka said in a 2017 interview that the chances of the franchise ever revisiting the ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' style of gameplay are fairly minimal.

* CommonKnowledge: It's Common Knowledge that the game is a quick cartoon tie-in. In actuality, the game came first and was retooled to be more like the newest ''Sonic'' cartoon.
