Background Information

  • On cover A, Cream's swimsuit and sandals look identical to the swimsuit and sandals she wore in Sonic X.
  • Cover B features multiple references and Easter eggs through the graffiti on the walls:
    • There is an exaggerated drawing of Dr. Eggman with text pointing to it calling him "Big Meanie". This is in reference to the SpongeBob SquarePants episode, "New Student Starfish", where Patrick draws a similar exaggerated picture of Mrs. Puff with text on it that says "Big Fat Meanie".
    • Graffiti of Sanic can be seen on the wall.
    • Graffiti of the text "GOT RING" can be seen. This is in reference to the "got ring?" blimp from Radical Highway in Sonic Adventure, which in turn was a reference to the got milk? advertising campaign.
    • Graffiti of the Speed Type, Power Type, and Fly Type symbols from Sonic Heroes can be seen on the wall.
    • Graffiti of the text "HEXAno" can be seen on the wall. This is in reference to HEXAeco from Sonic Heroes.
    • Graffiti of Froggy can be seen on the wall.
    • Partially-blocked graffiti of the text "WHERE IS THAT DAMN FOURTH EMERALD" can be seen. This is in reference to Shadow's infamous line of "Where's that damn FOURTH Chaos Emerald!?" from the Shadow the Hedgehog game.
    • Graffiti of the text "CONCEPT OF LOVE" can be seen on the wall. This is in reference to the song "The Concept of Love" from the Sega game Jet Set Radio, a game known for its characters spraying graffiti around their city.
    • Graffiti of a Cannon can be seen.
    • Graffiti of a Penguin can be seen.
    • Graffiti of Charmy's badge can be seen.
    • Graffiti in the style of the "Perfect! 2000" point bonus text from Sonic Adventure 2 can be seen.
    • Graffiti of a Bumper can be seen.
    • Graffiti of a Chao can be seen.
    • Graffiti of a Boo can be seen.
    • Graffiti of Omochao holding a flashlight similar to what he does when the player enters the cave for the Chao Race in Sonic Adventure 2 can be seen on the right side wall, with text under it saying "OMOCHAO is WATCHING".
    • Graffiti of Omega's symbol can be seen.
    • Graffiti of the name "Ashura" can be seen, which is a well-known glitch from Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
    • Graffiti of the Black Market shopkeeper and their fish can be seen.
    • Graffiti of the MeteorTech logo can be seen.
    • Graffiti of a Crewmate from the video game, Among Us, designed after Sonic can be seen on the wall.
    • Graffiti of the text "MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT" can be seen on the wall. This is based on dialogue from the YouTube video "Sonic Adventure 2 (Dark Story + Final Story) | Real-Time Fandub Games" by SnapCube, where Dr. Eggman has an angry rant about Shadow.
    • Graffiti of Tails' shocked expression from the ninth panel of the first page of the webcomic, Tails Gets Trolled, can be seen on the right side wall.
      • Beside this face, the text "LOOK AT ALL THOSE EGGMAN'S ROBOTS" can be seen, which is one of Tails' in-game quotes from Sonic Heroes.
