** [[spoiler:For a god of light and time, Solaris is fairly easy to defeat.]] Doubles as a BreatherBoss, considering [[MarathonLevel what you]] [[LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading have to]] [[ThatOneLevel go through]] getting to it. Not to mention instead of having an epic phase of it being damaged enough so that it splits into Iblis and Mephiles again so you can finally kill them for good and make them pay for what they've done and Sonic gets payback on Mephiles for murdering him temporarily, no instead Sonic and Elise find the tiny flame, Elise blows it out and that's it.... No chance of properly fighting Mephiles and Iblis one last time, no satisfaction of killing them for good in an epic battle, no seeing Mephiles die and the satisfaction that he payed for killing Sonic.... JUST NOTHING ABOUT THIS FIGHT IS SATISFYING!

Added DiffLines:

* BreatherLevel: The final of the three Soleanna Trials. The first one is an annoying trial-and-error puzzle that often takes longer than it ought to due the game not always making things clear, the second is an utter nightmare where you have to defeat a swarm of enemies with ''[[NoDamageRun no rings]]'', and the third...you pick one of two characters to talk to and win, regardless of choice. After all the lives the player inevitably blows through on the second trial, it very much feels like ArsonMurderAndJaywalking.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Padding}}: You have to play all ten stages for every character's story, regardless if it has any bearing on the plot or not. However, one particularly crazy example is a part of Sonic's story where you have to play Wave Ocean a second time, only with Tails. You could easily cut it out of the game with zero impact on the plot, and nobody would even guess there was supposed to be something there.


* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter:
** Taking her backstory into account, Princess Elise. The Duke of Soleanna sealed Iblis inside of her when she was just a little girl and told her that she shouldn't ever cry or else the world will be destroyed. Although her character arc involves her opening up and being more expressive, it's never shown how much this act of bottling up her sadness and likely her other emotions affected her; instead, the plot focuses on her being a LivingMacGuffin and having an apparent crush on Sonic.
** Mephiles. He has a cool design, is scarily competent a Chessmaster and combatant, gets some great lines, and has delivery of those lines in a way that's both bombastic and intimidating courtesy of Creator/DanGreen. Unfortunately, his character is barely explored. His motives for his goal are incredibly vague aside from a ''very'' off-hand comment from Shadow, and Mephiles himself doesn't get a MotiveRant or any dialogue that reveals exactly ''why'' he wants to destroy all of reality. And even though his backstory of being [[spoiler:experimented on and abused by scientists]] is revealed, no real connection is ever made between that and his current goals. Also, FridgeBrilliance suggests that he does have a reason for screwing around with the protagonists [[ComplexityAddiction the way he does]], but again, it's left completely unexplained.
** And, potentially to some, ''Sonic himself,'' as mentioned in TrappedByMountainLions below. While Shadow directly confronts the mystery behind Mephiles and Silver eventually tags with him [[spoiler:to see the origins of Mephiles' and Iblis' separation from each other as Solaris]], Sonic spends his entire storyline repeatedly saving Elise, who gets captured ''at least five times'', often as soon as Sonic turns his back after the last rescue. He only barely learns of Iblis and Elise's connection to it, and otherwise keeps fighting Eggman over and over; although it's certainly a decent conclusion between the two, Sonic essentially did little else besides possibly save the world in a way that isn't quite directly acknowledged. [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking And he doesn't even get much of his attitude or one-liners, either.]] Also to add insult to injury Sonic has absolutely interaction with Mephiles and when Mephiles finally decides to confront Sonic he just kills him in a super anti climatic way without a fight or any dialogue between the two and just seems to think Sonic wasn't important enough to bother speaking to and just treated the blue hedgehog nothing more than just a sacrificial lamb ready for the chop. Yeah...great
** Blaze's levels are praised as being the most polished and glitch-free in the game, with actual speedy gameplay (Game Grumps described her as [[UpToEleven "fast Sonic"]]) and some surprisingly cool moves. They're also short and desperately infrequent, and surrounded by lengthy, boring levels of Silver trying to not make the physics engine spontaneously combust. Her story role leaves much to be desired too, as even when ignoring the {{Retcon}} with her backstory, she keeps disappearing and reappearing for no reason.

** [[spoiler:Blaze is the new living seal of Iblis, and now she's gone to another dimension.As the princess of another dimension, this had potential... then the reset button got pushed.]]
** For some who genuinely ''liked'' the game, they feel that SEGA had done this when they [[spoiler:pushed the ResetButton at the end of the story]].
** The idea of Elise herself. What could have been, attached to a less convoluted plot with more room for down time, a cohesive and evenhanded analysis of Sonic fans or the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom in general, instead just becomes completely uncomfortable and kind of vapid.
** Once they realize how to do it, Sonic, Shadow and Silver theoretically could time travel ''however they damn well want'' and with seemingly no limitations -- it even doubles as convenient teleportation. This could easily become a StoryBreakerPower given the implications. Instead, they don't even think to actually use it properly, and when [[spoiler:Elise and Eggman die due to the Egg Carrier crashing,]] Sonic only succeeds in averting this at the last second when he could've essentially warped there from the start. They could've even made the carrier the final stage. Instead he warps back to an hour beforehand in Soleanna, [[{{Filler}} has to find a secret entrance to the kingdom's labs,]] and only barely catches the Egg Carrier for the sake of what can be interpreted as being dramatic.

** While well regarded in the end of his story mode, Shadow using the rings in his wrists as power inhibitors (an idea taken from ''Anime/SonicX) is never established in the story or the previous games before it happens.

* TheWoobie: Elise's general role is quite sad, especially taking her backstory into account. She had to completely suppress her emotions so that she wouldn't cry and unleash Iblis on the world, and due to her royal duties she had few, if any, friends. Sonic finally gets her to open up, only for Mephiles to take advantage of their friendship and murder Sonic. At the end of the game, Elise has to retcon the events of the game out of existence, and finally cries as this means she'll forget meeting Sonic.

Added DiffLines:

** In the game, there is an archaeologist and historian named Adrianna who is passionate of studying ancient civilizations. Sounds like a certain Relic the Pika from the Archie Sonic series.

* CatharsisFactor: Sonic vs Silver is ThatOneBoss. Silver vs Sonic on the other hand... you get to act out that CurbStompBattle yourself.



* CreatorsPet:
** Silver can be seen as one, especially since he's the only one of the three main hedgehogs you have to play as at some point in all three characters' stories.
** Though his [[CharacterRerailment characterization was fixed]], Shadow can be this as well, since the game's core story centers around him while the other characters largely run around and act like idiots.


* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Sonic's test of love; Does Sonic love Amy Rose or Princess Elise? You pass the trial, no matter who you choose!? On top of that, the answer has no bearing on the rest of the game.

* DamselScrappy: Princess Elise, who manages to get kidnapped more times in one game than a good number of video game princesses do over the course of their entire franchises. Another thing your mileage may vary on: whether Silver being the cause of half those kidnappings is making things [[{{Misblamed}} better]] or [[IdiotPlot worse]]. It is not an exaggeration to say that, EVERY time that Sonic isn't looking at her, she gets captured! At one point, she doesn't even need to be captured, but she surrenders herself.

* ThatOnePuzzle: The billiard ball puzzle in Silver's Dusty Desert. You have to maneuver a ball through a long hallway with a 90-degree turn using Silver's very imprecise psychic push move, with bottomless pits everywhere. Not so bad, right? Except the ball ALSO has a timer on it, and the timer decreases by a number if you push the ball too! So, not only do you have to push the ball down the hallway very precisely, you also have to do it in an allotted time AND with as few moves as possible. Many players have been stuck on this puzzle for (sometimes literally) hours trying to get past it, for something that should have been nothing more than a very quick piece of gameplay. Ironically enough, the Very Hard DLC mission for the stage simply replaces it with a gauntlet of enemies and pits.
