  • A Day in the Limelight: For the Lightning Bolt Society.
  • 15 Minutes of Fame: Defeating Sonic's team in bowling makes the "Lightning Bowler Society" instant celebrities, but causes infighting among the team (mostly thanks to Staci) and nearly breaks the team apart. When they reunite in the name of villainous friendship, they are quickly defeated by Team Sonic and their fame is gone as quickly as it arrived.
  • Sore Loser: Sonic does not take losing to the Lightning Bowlers very well.
  • Sanity Slippage: Sonic spends the entire episode becoming increasingly obsessed with beating the Lightning Bowlers in a rematch to the point where even Sticks thinks he's gone crazy.
  • Shout-Out: The music that plays when Sonic's bowling team is playing against the Lightning Bowlers is based on the song "Push It to the Limit".
  • Wimp Fight: What the Lightning Bowler's arguing eventually devolves into.
  • Yoko Oh No: Staci convinces the Chameleon that the Lightning Bowlers are holding him back from his true potential.
