There's a couple I've got on my mind that I want to throw out for discussion;
Firstly, Sonic 06 (who saw that one coming? ). Okay, I know I'm probably a fool for trying to make sense of a plot that ultimately hits the reset button on itself anyway, but hear me out for a second; I'd heard long before playing the game that the Blue chaos emerald is stuck in an endless time loop- however, as far as I can tell:
>Silver gives it to Elise ten years ago
>Elise holds into it for ten years, then gives it to Sonic after she's first kidnapped
>Sonic gives it to Eggman at White Acropolis
Okay, admittedly, I can't remember Silver's story in too much depth, so if anyone can remind me how the blue emerald comes into his posession in order for him to give it to Elise, I'll be grateful.
Whilst the first one might just be due to my bad memory, this one which I recently discovered in Sonic Adventure in a recent playthrough seems a lot more confusingly concrete;
Namely, when Knuckles follows Gamma back to Eggman's Mystic Ruins base? That's all well and good, and I'm surprised I never questioned this before, but as far as I can remember, Gamma never actually makes the trip from Red Mountain to the base throughout the course of his plot. In fact, Gamma never goes back to the Mystic Ruins base at all after leaving it at the beginning of his story. After Red Mountain, Gamma heads straight to the (already crashed) Egg Carrier, meaning that the only time Knuckles could have followed him in order to get onto the Egg Carrier in the first place, was after it had already crashed. And considering Gamma's storyline covers the entirety of his lifetime, from the moment he's activated until he's destroyed, you can't possibly leave it up to the assumption that it's something you just see between scenes.
So what the hell actually happens? Knuckles follows Gamma back to a place Gamma doesn't go to, at a time when Gamma isn't even there. Maybe Knuckles is just hallucinating or something. D:
