Meet the team: Tails, Amy, Rouge, and Sonic.

The Sonic Zombie series is a saga of Stylistic Suck videos made in Garry's Mod featuring Sonic the Hedgehog and friends in the midst of a Zombie Apocalypse. They were created by Steve AKA Balena Productions, who became famous for his Sonic in Jaws video.

The series officially ended on September 16th 2015, with the aptly named "Sonic Zombie The Finale". In June 5th of 2017, Balena released a bonus one-off titled "Sonic Zombie Forces", based on the then-upcoming video game Sonic Forces.

     List of Episodes (In chronological order): 


And then the tropes came!:

  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: Happens with just about every character at some point, intentionally or not thanks to always being dragged around by their heads.
  • Actor Allusion:
    • As the SS Ikea sinks to the bottom of the sea in Doom Ship, Batman, Captain America, Chris Redfield and Sonic comment on how bad the situation is. All four of them are voiced by Roger Craig Smith, whom Steve based his Sonic voice off of.
    • Earlier in Origins, Sonic is briefly replaced by Batman who promptly reacts to a rampaging Monster Knuckles with "This is bad."
    • Shrek! makes frequent cameos in scenes involving Knuckles. Said cameos make more sense when you remember that Knuckles' voice is a parody of Eddie Murphy (Hence Shrek calling Knuckles "DONKEY." That and Knuckles quickly shouting "Coming to America!" as he throws a zombie Cream off of him in Origins)
  • Advertisement:
  • Affably Evil: In Metal Sonic's gang, the only one to show any true desire to kill the lead cast is Metal Sonic himself, which makes sense once it's revealed that Metal Sonic is really Silver back for revenge yet again. Pikachu brushes off Metal's instructions and doesn't even try to kill Knuckles when the two meet face to face (instead opting for a rap contest), Mega Man and Bowser (despite the latter saying "Yeah that sounds fun" when they split up) are more interested in the food available in the mall (Tacos and donuts respectively), and the Dolphin prefers to just pose erotically in front of everyone in the video store.
  • Age Lift: Amy says that she's 16 during her song in Space.
  • All Just a Dream:
    • The very end of the series reveals that it was actually all a bad dream had by regular old Sonic, animated in Source Filmmaker.
    • Forces ends with regular Sonic waking up, but then encountering Balena's past Parody Sues, waking up from that, and eventually finding Zombie-Sonic floating over his bed.
  • An Ass-Kicking Christmas: Origins takes place on Christmas.
  • And Then John Was a Zombie: Cream, Knuckles, and Bowser, seconds before they transform.
  • Art Shift: The very last scene of Finale is done in Source Filmmaker, featuring much higher quality animation and the regular Sonic we (and Steven of course) know and love. Steve normally uses SFM for his other fan videos such as "Scared Stupid."
  • Artifact Title: By the individual video. While all of them actually do include zombies, in many cases the zombies take a back-seat to the Monster of the Week. This was inverted in Doom Ship, which starts out having nothing to do with zombies, but then they get on the ship. Forces is the only title to completely lack any zombies, and even it is more of an extra.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: A very common theme amongst the monsters featured in the series, with the use of the inflator tool.
  • Back from the Dead: All the time.
  • Bad "Bad Acting": This series is built off shoddy acting. Here's an example form Vengeance:
    Knuckles: Sonic man, I got an idea. We can take up to that.. that crane thing up there that's what it's called I think a crane.
  • Badass Biker: The Rivals in Shopping Mall use motorcycles as means of transportation.
  • Batman Gambit: Silver's ultimate goal in Vengeance revolves around one. To make a long story short, he predicts the outcome of the entire episode, including when Hornhog Sonic and Vampire Knuckles' fight would lead them both to the front gate where Silver could come out and snatch their powers once they were vulnerable.
  • Battle Rapping: One occurs between Knuckles and Pikachu in Shopping Mall. It goes as well as you'd expect.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Don't ever say you used Tails' tacos to summon a giant monster, or say you're hungry for one yourself. Amy, Charmy, and Mega Man found this out the hard way.
    • Don't let Blaze find out you used one of her clones to have sex with them, or she'll kick you off her ship.
  • Big Damn Heroes: After several videos of meaningless but hilarious cameos, Shrek! comes to Knuckles' rescue in Finale, and Knuckles even acknowledges his presence!
  • The Cameo: Team Chaotix and, oddly enough, Toy Freddy cameo in the strip club seen in Forces, but they do not do anything in the plot.
  • Camera Abuse: In Gmod, the camera works very much like a tripod. Cue the numerous moments when someone decides to touch it and the camera topples over, sometimes sending it into a spinning frenzy or launching it across the room.
  • Canon Immigrant: Scourge in an odd sort of way. He originates from Sonic the Hedgehog (Archie Comics) but had a custom model made for Garry's Mod and would thus see use in Finale.
  • Character Death: In a zombie apocalypse, there's gonna be a lotta death.
    • In Origins, Cream is bitten by a zombie while pouring champagne for the others. She ends up biting Knuckles while zombified, who later turns into a huge red zombie creature. Wreck-It Ralph also dies.
    • In Apocalypse 3, everyone in the main cast (Sonic, Tails, Amy, Rouge, and Shadow) is assumed to have died during the zombie raid. Subverted when we find out Rouge survived and "fixed everyone," in the words of Billy.
    • In Thing 2, Dr. Eggman and Shadow were thrown off a roof, and were assumed to have died. Godzilla, the zombie lord, also dies.
    • Diaries has the deaths of Sonic and Rouge's baby son, Classic Sonic, along with Mario and Spider-Man (all killed by Satan). Silver was thrown off into the woods by Satan, presumably to his death, then Tails kills Satan.
    • Vengeance has the real deaths of Eggman and Silver. Knuckles also returns.
    • In Space, numerous clones of the main cast are killed by Rouge, Shadow, and Knuckles, who ended up surviving the ordeal in Origins. At the end, when the group is leaving the space station after getting kicked out by Blaze, Shadow realizes he's left his bomb on the station. It explodes, killing Blaze and any other clones that may have survived.
    • In Doom Ship, new characters Vector, Espio, and Charmy all end up dying.
    • In Shopping Mall, Silver's crew members, Pikachu, Mega Man, Bowser, and the Dolphin all die. Finally, the clone of Dr. Eggman that survived the space station crash and ended up joining Sonic's team in Doom Ship also dies after breaking his back.
    • In Finale, Tails and Cream's son, Pablo, dies after their hot air balloon crashes. Silver returns once again but is finally killed. Numerous recolors at the carnival are killed, and their leader, Scourge, is also killed. Finally, Rouge is killed during the confrontation with Scourge atop the roller coaster.
      • All of these deaths are ultimately subverted since the whole series was All Just a Dream, and therefore, none of these deaths ever even happened.
  • Characterization Marches On: Sonic changes his "gimmick." In the second and third videos publish-wise, his shtick is that he speaks in monotone, acts like a Cloud Cuckoolander, and is a walking advertisement for things like Pizza Hut. Then Origins adds atittude and gives him his "douchebag" part, something that has stuck with him since.
  • Chekhov's Gun: Doom Ship has a few: The anchor Eggman drops down (serves as how the zombies get there), Vector's diarrhea-inducing Sweedish meatballs (later used on the Monster of the Week), and the dolphin that makes an occasional appearance (gives Knuckles a ride to the crew).
  • Companion Cube: Tails' tacos.
  • Crappy Carnival: Whispering Oaks in Finale is not only a run-down, abandoned carnival with rides rotting and falling apart, but its run by the maniacal Scourge and his army of recolours.
  • Demoted to Extra: The zombies go from the main source of conflict, to only appearing to remind the audience that, yes, this is Sonic Zombie for a reason.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Vector experiences this once his ship begins to sink, so he allows himself to go down with the ship.
  • Devoured by the Horde: A couple of examples:
    • Ultimately subverted in Apocalypse 3; while Tails, Amy, and Shadow are devoured during the zombie raid, somehow Rouge manages to survive and nurse them all back to health, including Sonic, who was bitten by a zombified Shadow.
    • In Doom Ship, this is how Charmy dies.
  • Disproportionate Retribution:
    • In the one time someone (Charmy) got dangerously close to taking a bite out of one of Tails' tacos, Tails grabs him by the head and lets out an extreme flow of diarrhea on him, which knocks Charmy out of the room unconscious and completely blackened.
    • Rouge and the others don't think much of Scourge and his gang of recolors in Finale and decide to leave. Naturally, Scourge orders his horde to kill the gang.
  • Disney Villain Death: Both Shadow and Eggman die in Thing this way. The former returns in Diaries and the later in Vengeance.
  • Doomed by Canon: Subverted. Cream and Knuckles are absent in Apocalypse 3, suggesting that they would have died in Origins, although as of Finale, while the two did seemingly die, Apocalypse 3 appears to be non-canon...for the most part. And while Cream dies, she's eventually brought back into the cast by virtue of the clones from In Space (where she's retconned into Eggman's daughter and doesn't become heroic until Eggman is forced to join Sonic and his crew in Doom Ship), while Knuckles is revealed to have not died, but turned into a vampire, which he lost anyway when Silver took his powers.
  • Doomy Dooms of Doom: The seventh episode is called "Sonic Zombie Doom Ship The Movie"
  • Dream Within a Dream: Forces ends with regular, Source Film Maker-Sonic waking up after a series of nightmares.
  • Drives Like Crazy: In Origins, Sonic can barely drive his Hummer without accidentally driving on the edges of the road or crashing into a light post.
  • Dull Surprise:
    Sonic: (in Origins) Look out behind you.
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: Apocalyse 3.
    • The narrator's voice is lower and less enthusiastic.
    • The effects are much worse. The streams used to make their heads move are actually visible this time.
    • The ending is far more closed in than following videos, and a bit of a downer at that. Shadow is bitten by zombies, they break in and take down Amy, Rouge, and Tails, and Sonic runs into a base just to get bit by a zombie Shadow. There is no Sequel Hook like the following videos, probably because they weren't originally planned.
    • The video is far shorter than the rest. This barely totals over four minutes. Everything after has no less than thirteen, aside from the bonus Forces.
    • Amy and Rouge only show the slightest hint at the personalities they will later get, and Tails doesn't at all. (He doesn't even speak.) Sonic's character seems to be a blend of his pre-Origins and Origins-onwards selves. Shadow is the only one that remains the same throughout the whole series.
    • The zombies actually are the main and only conflict force this time. This also lacks the Monster of the Week that eventually shows up in the later installments.
  • Enemy Mine: To save his own life, Eggman is forced into joining the heroes during the zombie attack in Doom Ship. He remains loyal to Sonic's team in Shopping Mall, indicating that he underwent a full Heel–Face Turn. He returns in Finale, inviting Sonic to end the zombie nightmare before it even begins.
  • Epic Fail: Due to the Stylistic Suck nature of the videos, these are all over the place. One recurring example is characters' ragdolls stalling and/or flopping around in place while being moved, often to the frustration of the narrator.
  • Evil Twin: A plot point in Space.
  • Every Episode Ending: Most episodes end with the currently-alive cast escaping in aircraft. Helicopters are the most common.
    Knuckles: Wow, man that's kinda lucky, how often do you really think anyone would find a helicopter?
    Amy: Well actually we find one at like, the end of all these videos.
  • Everything's Deader with Zombies
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Guess where Space, Doom Ship, and Shopping Mall take place. And yes, every installment in the series except Forces has zombies, although they are rarely the central opposing force.
  • Excuse Plot: There's often very little justification behind any given plot, as it's obviously done for the fun factor of the videos. Space takes the cake, with the characters getting their space ship just because Rouge asked the maker for one.
  • Express Delivery: Rouge has one with Classic/Baby Sonic.
  • Fur Against Fang: Knuckles (who is revolved to have become a vampire after surviving the events of Origins) and Sonic the "Hornhog" fight each other in Vengeance for a brief time.
  • Gag Boobs: To become Super Sonic in Origins, Sonic grabs and forcefully rubs Rouge's boobs.
  • Gainax Ending: Origins, Vengeance, and In Space ends with gags about the narrator being cut off by his relatives, then has sounds of what's going on outside. Doom Ship is even odder, with a pop-up window taking over the entire screen. Shopping Mall seems to finally end this.
  • The Ghost: Sonic mentions having a girlfriend who has a daughter in Diaries 3, and he took the latter to Disneyland.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: Many of the monsters the heroes meet appear with little to no backstory, and are there just to give the heroes something to fight.
  • Go for the Eye: When Monster Silver suddenly appears on Blaze's starship, Sonic promptly throws a lightsaber into his eye.
    Sonic: May the hooba be with you.
  • Going Down with the Ship: Vector in Doom Ship.
  • Hammerspace: Somehow Tails was able to fit a giant boat inside Rouge's ass.
  • Hilarious Outtakes: It is implied that every scene across the series is done in one take, and with no script, leaving anything in that would be considered an Outtake by normal standards.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: Origins gives us this:
    Sonic: Douching through the snow, driving my Hummer, which I don't really need, cause I'm only a single guy!
    • Knuckles' songs in Doom Ship and Shopping Mall, especially the former.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Shopping Mall gives us an exchange where Sonic tries to get it on with Rouge after the rest of the team sets off to stop the villains, where he's pushed away and lands on the ground. He then exclaims "I feel bad when I do that to Amy", followed by Amy randomly showing up to cuddle with Sonic, where Sonic throws her aside as well.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Rouge in Finale, courtesy of Scourge.
  • Imperiled in Pregnancy: Rouge goes into labor when the zombies attack the gang in Diaries 3.
  • Interspecies Romance:
    • Sonic and Rouge both have sex out in the woods in Diaries, which results in Baby Sonic.
    • Tails attempts to get it on with Blaze in Space. Also, between the nine month gap from Shopping Mall and Finale, he and Cream had a baby named Pablo.
  • Jiggle Physics / Ragdoll Physics: All over the place. Literally every character is dragged around by their head, leaving their other parts to swing around.
  • Kill the Cutie: Baby Sonic, Charmy and Cream are killed off only moments after being introduced.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Sonic and Baby Sonic.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Parodied in Space with Robotnik and Sonic.
    Robotnik: They never told you what happened to heccch!
    Sonic: They told me enough. They told me hooba dooba!
    Robotnik: No! I am the heccch!
    Sonic: No.
  • Male Gaze: Every time Rouge the Bat is in focus, the camera will almost always zoom into her breasts, often with sexual remarks from the narrator.
  • May the Farce Be with You: Space is a very obvious parody of Star Wars, with Blaze's starship being the Death Star and Sonic battling a clone of Dr. Eggman with a Lightsaber.
  • Medium Blending: A given when the anthro animals of Sonic are mixed with the realistic headcrab zombies of Half-Life. And that's just scratching the surface.
  • The Mole: Robotnik in Zombie Thing and Silver in Zombie Diaries.
  • Monster of the Week: Every entry in the series (except the first-created one) has at least one. Godzilla with the Tank, Satan, Zombie Knuckles, Hornhog Sonic with Monster Silver, a sea monster, Monster Bowser and the giant carnival sewer worm.
  • National Stereotypes:
    • Sonic now being a classically American selfish, egotistical jerk who owns a gas-guzzling Hummer, smokes even though he has passengers in the car and works at both Pizza Hut and Starbucks.
    • The easiest and probably most offensive is Tails' Mexican heritage, his love for tacos which goes to the point of familial love and his psychopathic rage towards anyone trying to steal one.
    • Vector being Swedish, eating horrible meatballs that induce diarrhea and being captain of a ship named "SS Ikea".
    • Shopping Mall lampshades this (even more-so than the series's norm) with the introduction of Pikachu, who is another "black" character. Knuckles doesn't like this, and insists that he should be the only black stereotype in Sonic Zombie.
    • Finale has Scourge as a violent, cruel, sadistic Australian obsessed with Outback Steakhouse and having Rouge as his "Sheila"/sex slave.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero:
    • In yet another attempt to "do'' Sonic, Amy instead decides to have sex with one of the many Sonic clones on Blaze's starship, accidentally releasing everyone else's clones, including Dr. Eggman's.
    • Shopping Mall has the doors that get sealed off by the heroes in the beginning to block out the zombies getting destroyed by The Rival Badass Biker gang when they barge into the mall the same reason Sonic and his friends took shelter there.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Sort of. If Satan didn't go and announce he used the power of Tails' tacos, he wouldn't be beaten to death by a young mexican fox who suddenly went insane.
  • No Fourth Wall: Characters regularly break the fourth wall all the time, especially Sonic.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: Shrek and Cream are the only characters whose facial features are stretched out far more than normal. Bowser and Vector are the only ones who actually move their mouths to talk, presumably because it's easier for them.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • Cream when she meets a zombie face-first.
    • Rouge when she sees Cream being attacked.
    • Tails discovering his Tacos have vanished.
    • Sonic when Rouge reveals she got pregnant.
      • And then Amy when she finds out.
    • Tails' reaction to the initial zombie attack in Vengeance.
  • Once per Episode:
    • The team's escape by aircraft at the end.
    • Shadow going out to hold the zombies off with a shotgun, which gets lampshaded in Shopping Mall.
  • One-Winged Angel: Knuckles in Origins, Silver in Vengeance, and Bowser in Shopping Mall.
  • Our Slogan Is Terrible: Sonic in this series is an employee at Pizza Hut, and throughout Thing, he makes up many poor slogans.
  • Overly-Long Name: Given by the narrator via some colorful dialogue to Eggman in Vengeance:
    Dr. RoFatassf***ingFatFattyFatf***ingf***ingFatSonOfAB***F***ingFattyFat… Yeah, he’s pretty much fat.
  • Palette Swap: Scourge has an entire army of them! Oh and he's kinda one as well.
  • Perpetual Poverty: In effect starting from Vengeance; the team repeatedly mentions not eating for days, but no one has shown signs of starving or being physically weaker from the lack of food. For instance, even on an empty stomach, Knuckles is still able to defeat a gang of zombies without receiving any type of body damage or bites.
  • Piss-Take Rap: The rap battle between Knuckles and Pikachu. What Knuckles sings does not rhyme or even really match with the beat, and Pikachu is knocked out before he can give his verse.
  • Potty Emergency: Sonic and Shadow in Doom Ship once the Swedish meatballs Vector fed them earlier kick in. They find Rouge waiting outside while Amy uses the restroom, and Tails "walks" in later needing to go too.
  • Potty Failure: Tails is so upset when he finds Charmy Bee trying to eat one of his tacos that through his tantrum, he unleashes crap everywhere.
  • Power Incontinence: Sort of. Sonic's "Hornhog" form in Vengeance causes him to become hostile and having a thing for raping his victims to death. He can still speak and even questions what happened to him, though the main characters remain scared to approach Sonic in Hornhog form.
  • Red Shirt: Mario, Spider-Man, and Ralph are brought on-screen for only a few seconds before they are axed off by the current Monster of the Week.
  • Red Sky, Take Warning: What signals the appearances of Godzilla in Thing and the zombies as a whole in Diaries.
  • Robotic Reveal: Inverted in Shopping Mall, where Sonic finds that Metal Sonic isn't a robot when he sees him taking a piss.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Thanks to the logic that any of Blaze's clones that has a living counterpart on Earth that dies in some way inherits the memories of their deceased counterpart, the clone of Dr. Eggman accidentally released by Amy is just as dangerous as the real one Sonic killed an episode prior.
  • Sequel Escalation: It isn't clear if this is intentional or not, but each video (going by when they came out) was longer than the last until Shopping Mall. Probably not, since Diaries 3 is only two seconds longer than Thing 2.
  • Serial Rapist: Hornhog Sonic. The only one that sees this as a good thing is Amy, since she is constantly trying to get near Sonic.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Finale, and ultimately the series as a whole, ends with this: Robotnik shows up out of nowhere with a Delorean, having discovered the cause of the zombie outbreak. He invites Sonic to go back in time with him to end it. As was shown at the end of Origins, it was all Big the Cat's fault due to him scratching his rather rancid nethers and letting the...residue get in some fast food burgers. To change the future, Sonic and Robotnik have to kill Big. Sonic is reluctant...but the decision's taken out of his hands as his own past self, Hummer and Sonic Unleashed model and all, runs over Big, leading to him dying in a flaming wreck and ending the zombie nightmare before it ever begins. The result is that the Christmas part in Origins goes swell with no zombies, and even the Chaotix trio showing up on behalf of Ikea, supplying Rouge with a new bed. Everything is okay...well except for Rouge really being a monster who wants to eat Sonic's soul. That and it was All Just a Dream anyway.
  • Sinking Ship Scenario: The second half of Doom Ship.
  • Skyward Scream: In Diaries, Tails gives out a loud, screeching scream into the air after his tacos disappear the morning after camping out in the night. Later in the episode, Sonic lets out a scream of his own when his newborn baby is killed in cold blood
  • Sorry, I'm Gay: Early in Origins, Amy asks Sonic if he could "comfort her", followed by Sonic answering with this trope.
  • Spexico: Tails' characterization from Diaries onwards.
  • Spoiler Opening:
    • The preview images for both Origins and Vengeance reveal several key plot elements. Origins' reveals that Knuckles will become zombified and Sonic will have to power up using Rouge's boobs, Vengeance spoils Sonic becoming a "Hornhog" and the return of both Knuckles and Silver after they were killed off in prior episodes.
    • Doom Ship The Movie spoils that Eggman will join the heroes, Knuckles and Espio will romance, a sea monster will attack the ship and Tails will pull something out of Rouge's ass to escape.
    • Sonic even lampshades the spoiler-tier thumbnails in both Origins and Vengeance.
  • Stopped Numbering Sequels: Vengeance onwards (Origins could be excused by being a prequel) just sticks with a title vaguely related to the video in question, especially the location it's centered on. Considering the first video is numbered 3, this might have been a good thing, avoiding Mind Screws.
  • Swallowed Whole:
    • In Vengeance, Monster Silver kills Shadow this way before becoming impaled on some poles when Sonic feeds him explosive "grenade-flavored" pizza. As Space shows, Shadow died inside Silver.
    • Doom Ship shows Sonic and Tails being swallowed by the giant sea monster that attacks Vector's ship, leading to the two depositing two of Vector's laxative "meatballs" in the stomach and causing the monster's back to suddenly erupt with feces, expelling Sonic and Tails in the process.
    • Finale has Scourge eaten by the giant worm...only to promptly escape by slicing its stomach open a few minutes later.]]
  • Take That!:
    • In the first episode released, Sonic's voice was meant to be a Take That! towards the then-current voice actor for Sonic, Jason Griffith. It later changed to a Roger Craig Smith Take That! after Sega switched official voice actors.
    • Doom Ship shows Tails' hatred towards Taco Bell.
    Tails: Oh this would've never happened if we just had tacos!
    Sonic: Heh. What are you f***ing kidding me? Have you ever had Taco Bell before?
    Tails: Taco Bell does not serve tacos, they serve... dog food!
    • DeviantArt receives quite the number of Take Thats in the later episodes, such as in Shopping Mall where Knuckles compares an attacking bear to "the furries kind of like the people on DeviantArt."
    • Finale begins with a fake opening for "Sonic Zombie Five Nights at Freddy's", including an establishing shot of Freddy Fazbear's pizzeria...only for Sonic to appear, claiming that the gang isn't "THAT desperate for views yet."
    • Scourge having an army of recolours is not only a Take That! to lazy fan characters but to Scourge himself, who Steve has a low opinion of.
    • At the end, Sonic of the past states that he was "interrupted while drinking his Starbucks and texting on the phone" and "Let me get back to driving without using my turn signal and browsing Facebook because that's clearly more important than other people's lives."
    • In Forces, Eggman's ultimate plan to destroy Sonic is to make an In-Name Only, really bad Sonic Adventure 3 in reference to game series that shove out poor-quality sequels to make a quick buck. There will be a Chao Garden... except it has microtransactions! Cue Catapult Nightmare from Sonic.
  • Take That, Audience!:
    • Near the end of Vengeance, Sonic makes a quick stab at viewers who take the series seriously and don't see it as a Stylistic Suck series. Another such stunt would appear in Space.
    • Finale has one from both Sonic and (not entirely subtly) Steve to fans who only care about the "Sonic Zombie" videos and are now likely to unsubscribe now that the series is over.
  • The Team:
  • Toilet Humor:
    • The entire main cast sans Knuckles in Doom Ship all rush and argue over the restroom on Vector's ship after experiencing harsh diarrhea from the odd-looking meatballs they ate earlier. Things don't get much better when Tails catches Charmy about to munch one of his tacos.
    • The Monster of the Week gets this too when Sonic inserts spare "meatballs" into it's stomach, which causes the sea monster to experience a rather harsh case of diarrhea.
    • Shopping Mall has Sonic walking in on Metal Sonic taking a wizz and realizing that robots cannot do that, as well as Eggman having to rush off to the bathroom near the end.
  • The Unintelligible: The Super Mario World Dolphin, whose dialogue is not only hard to hear, but he doesn't speak in full sentences and usually just says "MIMIMIMIMIMIMIMI."
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Big the Cat, who's poor hygiene kicks off the entire Zombie Apocalypse.
  • Verbal Tic: Sonic's "Hooba Dooba" phrases, especially in Vengeance.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: For a series based around zombies, the only scene to contain any form of zombie attack in Space is the opening attack in the deserted city's sewers.
  • Who Writes This Crap?!: Just about anybody will lampshade how weird or repetitive the episodes are. Inverted in Sonic's hornhog transformation in Vengence where it's done in a high-quality scene before Eggman asks who decided to give the video a budget. In other words, complaining that the animation is too good. Hornhog-Sonic suddenly turns into the same Garry's Mod effects as everyone else.
