Strangest thing(s) you found in a Sonic game?

Recommended Posts

Mephiles was stolen from a 2003 fan game called 'Neo Sonic Universe'.

Both take the form of Shadow, both have the same goals, both try to kill Sonic, both almost succeed at doing such. The similarities between them are very suspicious. The fan game was very popular, and won SAGE too.

Because similarities between different things means one of them is stolen from the other.

Stolen/inspired from, whatever. It's not uncommon. I'm not saying they definitely did, but there's an 85% chance they did. Apart from the red being changed to grey, they're the same. The game was very popular back then too.

If anything, it's pretty neat. I guess fan games can influence the main series after all. So they're not that useless.

Strange and horrifying - Sonic's drowning animation in Japanese Sonic Adventure.

Around 0:36.

His eyes roll back into his head and everything as he floats lifelessly back to the surface. Accidental nightmare fuel! ;__;

---

Another strange moment was how Eggman dies in three of Shadow's endings, but Sonic dies in none despite Shadow's intentions to do so. Maybe just because Sonic has plot armor due to being the mascot, but I felt kind of cheated. You get to see Shadow ... kill Eggman however way with a simple chop of his fingers three times, but Sonic's death is always implied.

The Physic detection in Sonic 06. I tried to break through a dang window (What I was supposed to do) and the window acted like a wall and didn't let me through therefore I fell to my death... huh.png

That reminds me of Mario's drowning in SM64 (they gave him a more cartoonish drowning in 64DS):

Now you can have twice the nightmare fuel about your videogame childhood heroes drowning! =D

You know what your avatar just reminded me of? The facial animations in Sonic Adventure of course. They made the heads look like they were made of jello or something. xD Very strange the way they looked.

Sushi is a rice dish, the entire joke hangs on not doing any research...

Sushi is associated with raw fish, even if it is common knowledge that sushi is a rice the dish. The entire joke hangs in not taking things too seriously.

Am I the only one who noticed how odd it is for Birdie to have a locket around his neck with a photo and Chaos Emerald inside it?

I mean, it's not like Birdie is very sapient is he? So why would he have a photo? And where did he get that emerald from exactly?

They're sapient enough to fling flower vases at cats, so I wouldn't put it past them to be able to open lockets and pick up photos/emeralds.

Successful Flicky reference. Bravo, sir.

I always thought it was odd, how much SA takes inspiration from NiGHTS. Hell, Windy Valley is essentially the airborne spawn of Spring Valley and Stick Canyon, and then the whole Casinopolis thing.

But hey, imitation is the best form of flattery, and if you're going to emulate any game's style, you might as well emulate NiGHTS.

It isn't funny that all the characters have cat like vertical pupils despite of the species?

its not really cat-like, its just ovular. Mephiles has cat eyes.

My personal weird moments in Sonic games:

- One of the images in Sonic CD's sound test with the muscled human-esque Sonic in it.

-When Eggman told Knuckles in SA that Sonic is after the Master Emerald shards as well, when Knuckles encounters him, in all 3 versions of the encounter, (Sonic, Tails Knuckles) with them that leads into a fight, Knuckles says something among the lines of 'Hand over the Emerald, now!' Even in his own version when he spots them before attacking them he remarks about the green Chaos Emerald looking like a piece of the Master Emerald since they are the same color, and he still says the wrong line. If he just said 'Hand over the Master Emerald pieces!' Sonic would have shown him that it was a Chaos Emerald and Eggman's trickery would have felt through.

-Big being able to somehow pilot the Tornado 2 in no landing gear-mode off the Egg Carrier while lying on the plane with holding the controls (watch the CGI cutscene of the Egg Carrier malfunctioning in Big's story and spot it for yourself) and managing to fly it all the way back to his home in the Mystic Ruins jungle. Although I guess this was done on purpose to show that Big isn't as retarded as people would think.

I saw Big running down the road in City Escape in the G.U.N. truck part in the original Sonic Adventure 2. The first time I saw that, I thought he was crushed or something.

Then I saw him multiple times later in the game. Not that I wanted to.
