Follow TV Tropes
Is there a reason all the links on the page are going to pop.mediatropes.info instead of tvtropes?
I have a problem with this entry.
First of all, it doesn't mention any examples of Throw It In!. Second, the game was written by American writers, which the entry mentions, but by definition, there can be no Woolseyisms in the English script because it was in English to begin with. I think this should be deleted. Anyone agree/disagree?
Yeah, I agree, unless there's some major difference in the Japanese script worth mentioning.
There was the Shout-Out to Kamen Rider, but I dunno if that really counts.
I think it would be good to separate Eggman's PA quotes from actual trvia. What do you guys think?
Considering the voice change, I wonder who Tikal's new voice is considerng she is not in Colors or Riders?
That's assuming she'll ever show up again...
She will most likely be in the anniversary game. I'm hoping for Tara Strong or Yeardley Smith.
What Could Have Been: Wave The Swallow and Tikal the Whatever were originally on the DS version, but got cut, as evidenced by the Wii save file names. Tikal would have been on Sweet Mountain, and Wave on Asteroid Coaster.
When you sve your game, it has all of the DS character names, as well as the above duo. These may have originally been in but got cut.
Uh, that's... rather flimsy logic, Miru.
Do you have an alternate explanation?
The DS version has evey reccoring good or neutral character exept Tikal and the babylons.
They're all in cameos.
Yes. That doesn't mean that Tikal and the Babylon Rogues were "originally" suppose to appear in this game.
What else could it mean?
Predetermined name choices with references to various other Sonic titles.
Okay. But miru also said this:
Considering he hasn't provided any actual proof of that, I see no reason to believe him.
The Sweet Mountain and Asteroid Coaster things were my predictions, considering their personality.
So... no actual proof. Got it.
Other than the random save names. Has anyone hacked the DS version?
Other than the random save names
Again, no actual proof.
Is the Game-Breaker entry really accurate? The consensus I've seen on other boards is that that feature makes it harder-to-impossible to get an S-Rank the majority of levels, since it disables all Wisp powers, barring you access to large chunks of bonuses as a result.
Is the ad the new page quote refers to an actual official ad for Sonic Colors or just a parody? Because if it's the latter, we shouldn't quote it without identifying its proper source. And it reeks of parody; it would be very unlike any self-respecting company to take that particular angle with its advertisements.
...Never mind, it got removed.
For the record, it's a parody ad. Sega's guilty of many things, but if there's one thing they would never do, it's using what would've been such a self-deprecating ad to promote their games.
Agreed. Sega, among other companies, are guilty of certain things, but even they wouldn't stoop so low to put down their own games. That's lacking in self-confidence.
"Certain things"... you know what, I'm probably better off not pressing further.
Apropos of nothing:
For obvious reasons (untranslatable humor), the Japanese script of the game differs significantly from the one used in the West. A lot of the jokes manage to survive the transition, but some of them didn't:
I'm sure there's a trope for this, but damned if I remember what it is.
Unless you know a trope to apply to both games, please specify which version the trope in question refers to.
The bosses, for the most part, are the same in both versions. I'm going to delete the "The Cameo" trope entry on the page.
I propose there be separate tabs for the DS and Wii versions.
Do we have enough specific tropes for both versions for that to happen?
I believe so.
A major example would be the Giant space flee from nowhere trope for the DS version, I also believe that Captain Jelly and Admiral Jelly (DS only) are the same boss, and therefore would be a Recurring Boss.
Proposing a Trivia.SonicColors page, to highlight the tropes present in all of Eggman's PA chatter. Who Writes This Crap?!, Blatant Lies, Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick, and so forth.
Go for it, mon. It should be pretty interesting.
Does anyone else see the Purple/Nega Wisps as The Woobie? The instruction booket says that "Once Wisps are captured by Dr. Eggman, they are converted into Nega-Wisps, like the Purple Wisps. These unfortunate Wisps are violent and are forced to carry out Dr. Eggman's evil plans."
Putting this here since I'm not sure if this is really an example or not.
Hmm, with that piece of information coupled with that scene in Asteroid Coaster where Sonic and Tails discover the Wisp Conversion Factory, one could make the case about the Nega-Wisps being Woobies. A second opinion would be most appreciated before we add it to the work page, though.
I've replaced the logo image with an image that better illustrates some of the features of the game. If anyone can find a better, however, they're more than free to replace the current image.

How well does it match the trope?
