Did You Know?

Trivia

Two of the mini bosses in the game, Blue Falcon and Black Bull, take their names from two of the racing machines from F-Zero, driven by Captain Falcon and Black Shadow, respectively. As SEGA helped co-develop F-Zero GX, it's highly likely that these were intentional references to the series. See more »

Goofs

Some cutscenes can make no sense depending on your morality route, for example you can directly disobey and betray Black Doom but the next cutscene acts like Shadow never betrayed him at all and has always been loyal to him. See more »

Quotes

Sonic the Hedgehog: Heh heh, bring it on!
[Sees The Black Arms Militia]
Sonic the Hedgehog: All right! Looks like the party is getting started! Shadow are you ready for this!
