Headscratchers / Sega Superstars

Go To

  • One of the earlier Event Matches Missions, You play as Amigo in a mission titled "Mardi Gras". Amigo is a mexican partying monkey. Mardi Gras is a french holiday. What the hell man?
    • Mardi Gras is essentially considered the Holiday of Partying. Amigo is a party monkey. I mean, this ain't Bastille Day.
  • Why the heck is Metal Sonic playing Metallic Madness Present whenever he goes into All-Star? Wouldn't the devs have found it to be more fitting, considering the context, to play Stardust Speedway (any version at all) instead?
  • Why does the latest game lack the "Sega" title in "Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed"? Why not call it "Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed"?
    • Likely because of the non-Sega characters joining in, like Ralph and The Spy/Heavy/Pyro.
      • Except that the first Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing also had Mii, Avatar and Banjo-Kazooie.
      • Mii and the Avatar are both additional characters that allow you to race as yourself, and not necessarily franchise characters. Rareware is now owned by Microsoft and was specifically asked to be put into the game.
      • Also, the the game is specifically labeled "Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing With Banjo-Kazooie". Banjo and Kazooie are made seperate from the Sega characters in the title. So if the sequel still had "Sega" in the title, then it would've been "Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed With Wreck-It Ralph and Danica Patrick", or on the PC version, *deep breath* "Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed With Wreck-It Ralph, Danica Patrick, Pyro, Heavy, and Spy".

    • The most reasonable reason would be simply to avoid Overly Long Title. Sonic & Sega Allstars Transformed is a mouthfull...
  • So Wreck-It Ralph is in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed in exchange for Sonic's cameo in Wreck-It Ralph. That's fine. But why isn't Vanellope, canonically a kart racer in her own (fictional) game, also in this game? Even if they only added the one character (Ralph) out of contractual obligation, it seems like a missed opportunity.
  • Similar to Sonic needing a car, why would Ralph need a wrecking ball? Isn't he essentially a human wrecking ball? It's not like it even comes into play in the game...
    • Because it looks cool.
  • Bit of a meta headscratcher: Considering how Team Fortress 2 will have hats as pre-order bonuses for other games on Steam, why didn't they have any items you get from purchasing or pre-ordering Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed even though Pyro, Heavy, and Spy are all playable in the game?

How well does it match the trope?
