How exactly did Zavok survive his lava bath? Even if he didn’t melt, there’s still convection and poisonous smoke to worry about. 

Considering Eggman built the base there in the first place....

He probably shrank midfall and avoided sinking in, though.

Don't think that's a weird read at all. I get the feeling that's what they were going for, but that doesn't change the fact they didn't handle it very well.

I think it is a valid read of it. Personally, I think they should of just had one of the parents be dead and the other one absent, and have Chris still reeling off losing one parent. It just felt a bit silly having Chris being sad when he was in a mega rich family and both his parents being absent half the time but still both clearly loving him.

Not to say depression isn't possible under those circumstances, but you need very good writing to pull of that kind of subtlety, and I don't think the Sonic X writers had that. (Although mind you, if they did kill a parent off, good chance 4Kids would of censored that, with them either on a permanent vacaction, divorced, or currently exiled in the Shadow Realm.)

What is Omochao's gender?

Omochao is a Robot made by Gerald Robotnik, so he (I just call him this out of convenience) doesn't have a Gender. Also, Chao are themselves technically both/neither gender, considering that any Chao can mate with any Chao and lay eggs together.

My question: If Eggman really is from the Human world and Sonic's from "Sonic's world", as SEGA seems insistent on, why do the two keep moving between the worlds so frequently? You'd think Eggman would normally have free reign over the Human world, and Sonic would have his hands full protecting his own world.

Huh. Fair point.

Completely forgot about that, actually.

The take I get on it is that the animal world is open enough that Eggman can just swoop into any given area and begin his research & conquest there with plenty breathing room.

Meanwhile, the human world is less easy to take over with GUN flying around the United Nations. Not that it stops him from trying from time to time, hence the emphasis on not-so-secret bases there compared to the Archipelago.

Also, Sonic travels all over anyway, so hopping between the two worlds isn't that unreasonable.

Are there any games that have human NPC civilians and anthro NPC civilians together? Otherwise, you have huge time periods in the anthro world and huge time periods in the human world.

Special note goes to Angel Island, which seems to have hints of both (e.g. artwork of humans in the Sandopolis pyramid).

Forces is the first time there've been explicit Mobian citizens, so that's a pretty good no.

I guess we never saw the commonfolk until Sonic Adventure. But I always figured they were animal worlds because, out of all the existing characters, Robotnik was the only human. (I never knew about Witchcart.)

(Also I never knew Robotnik wore glasses. There were two dots for his eyes.)

The TV shows reinforced these assumptions, methinks.

My first experience with the franchise was Sonic X and then Heroes, but regardless, I don't think I gave it much thought and just assumed both existed on the same world.

Why are they called Team Chaotix? In universe, I mean.

Not an official answer, but the terms "chaos" and "chao" get used a lot. Knuckles Chaotix involved the Chaos Emeralds and their Master Emerald, and there's also a "Chaos Ring" according to the Japanese manual.

Technically, they are the Chaotix Detective Agency, but Team Chaotix is shorter and to the point.

Boom is a separate universe comprosed almost entirely of Mobians. And I admittedly wasn't thinking of the Sol Dimension since it's not apart of that reveal.

Were there in the other games though? I thought the only ones in Advance 2 were the playable ones and Vanilla?

Technically we've never seen Mobians. There's no Mobius

There were the echidnas in the flashbacks in SA1. Chronicles also has echidnas, and in the present day too!

Can't think of anything in Advance 2, unless Vanilla counts.
