  • Despite the appearance of Sonic Blast's story "The T.U.F.F. Awards", the solicitation for Sonic Select Book 5 did not mention any usage of stories from the Sonic Specials series.
  • The table of contents did not include Sonic Super Special #8's story "Running on Empty" and Sonic Blast's story "The T.U.F.F. Awards".
  • The story "Ascension" had the art edited to have Sally wear her vest throughout the whole story (except flashbacks) as she entered into the Source of All, whereas in the original print she did not wear her west. This was probably done to censor any sense of nudity, due to Sally's design being more humanlike in the story.
