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

Recommended Posts

Because I can never get enough of character discussions.

Simply, because overall there are more games where Sonic acts like this than the one game where he acts like he does in ShTH.

I think the point was, Sonic tends to be more interesting when he's acting like he's a rebellious teenager rather than standard hero protagonist.

Really? Coz uhh... at the time of ShTH the only near-god he's faced is Perfect Chaos, and he was Super Sonic at the time. Before he turned Super he was pretty unconfident in terms of how to deal with it.

I think it's more these Black Arms haven't really done anything major, or anything more than what Sonic has faced in the past, so to him they're just another bump in the road.

Eggman and the master Emerald

In Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Eggman steals the Master Emerald and uses it to great effect. He uses it to power up the death egg and of the biggest robots he has ever created.

But in Sonic Adventure 2, Eggman shows up to steal the Master Emerald, and says, "I'm I'm not mistaken, this is the Master Emerald. Well, I guess I can use it for something. Farewell, Knucklehead."

??

This statement makes no sense. How could Eggman fail to recognize the Master Emerald after what happend in Sonic 3 and Knuckles? Of course he can use it for something. Among other things, he used it to power the entire Death Egg!

Possible explanations: Eggman was just feeling oddly sarcastic, or he has just completly forgotten about the events of Sonic 3 and Knuckles.

On another note, what became of the Death Egg? We never see it completly destroyed. Shame. Oh well. I do like the Death Egg mark II in Sonic 4.

You know thinking more about it, when Sonic defeats the giant robot at the end of the game, and then proceeds to chase Eggman's craft holding the Master Emerald, the platform is continually falling and the scenery is covered with small explosions. Yeah, that probably means the entire Death Egg is toast.

I'd never played SA2 until it was re-released last week and I thought it was.....maybe not odd, but oddly considerate how the bio-lizard stops and waits for you to pick up your rings when he shoots you with those purple energy balls.

He's a nice guy.

Haha! It's to give the player break, so you don't get pummelled with attacks while you're already down. You find that sort of thing in loads of games. Almost all the enemies in Generations do a little victory dance after they successfully attack you.

To me, what I found striking is that in many of the games the developers like to troll us. Look at the classics for example, we have Mystic Cave's infamous spike pit (we all know what happens if your super sonic) and the famous barel of Carnival Night. The zones had a moment were Sonic Team tricks us with the level design, and when ever thats fair is up for debate.

Odd things that happened in the Wii verson of All Stars Racing were there are many gliches in multiplayer (Grinding on the rails of the first Final Frotress track, Samba's all star messing with the camera with it locking in reverse and getting all the racers in the dance, and the Bonzi Bros. all star gliching out when it ended) and how the game is missing parts of the track such as in the first Seaside Hill track missing both the wale and pool of water when in multiplayer.

That

in Sonic Cd. Watch at your own risk, this message (along with the music) creeped me out when I was little...

Translation:

Fun Is Infinite

Sega Interprises

Majin (Satan/Devil)

Why would they do that? Are they trying to give little kids nightmares?

He looks like Tingle from Zelda to me. Which makes it even more disturbing.

Definitely the statue outside the Station Square burger shop in Sonic Adventure. When I first picked it up, I thought I activated some kind of glitch, but it turns out that it was supposed to be a statue modelled as an actual person. Still find it weird to this day.

It's also kind of strange in Sonic Generations that no one even questions the fact that there are two Sonics and they kind of just roll with it. The Time Eater may have brought in different zones from different times, but not people aside from Classic Sonic and Tails. There are some weird moments in the game when you think about it.

Characters glowing when they jump and/or spin dash. Also, Shadow having a golden aura, even though his fur is black.

I always think of that as Chaos/Sol/Time Energy (Time=Time Stones/Psychic power). It's even visible in CG Cutscenes.

The glowing auras are strange? It's just a flashy effect to emphasise their speed and make them look more ball-shaped. In the case of Shadow, his aura is golden because it looks a lot more striking that black or red. They actually did use in red Sonic '06 and it wasn't as nice. That said, I never did understand why Omega's aura was purple in Heroes (fixed to red in ShTH), and it really annoys me that Espio and Blaze have light blue auras.

Watching a episode of Creepy Gaming supposedly it's meant to be Sonic wearing Mario's face which is even more creepy. Did he like, rip it off and glue it to his own head ??

Speaking of Sonic CD secert pictures.

the statue serves to take an egg chao, that is on a pedestal, you have to put the statue on the pedestal to get out of the store with the egg.

as a curiosity if you talk with a little girl tells you that the statue gives rides at night, this is a reference on Curse of the Colonel Sanders.

Sonic says "Where are you Eggman?!" When they are already in sight range.

Eggman then pulls Amy out a bush, what was she doing there? Apparently just standing there. Why does she just let Eggman handle her like that? WHYYY!?
