Character Profile: Rotor Walrus.


  • This is the first Sonic Super Special Magazine issue that does not have a spine as a result of using staples to hold the posters in the magazine.
  • This is the first Sonic Super Special Magazine to not feature its issue number on the cover. The number "05" is near the bar code, but it is very easy to miss and does not seem to be a part of the actual cover design at all.
  • Strangely, not all of the posters on the cover reflect the posters available in the issue.
  • This issue contains the least amount of stories, due to most of the magazines space being given to the posters.
  • Two of the posters included are of covers that had not yet been released at that point: Knuckles Archives Vol 4 and Sonic the Hedgehog: Legacy Volume 3.
  • The location that appears on the cover is White Park Zone from the Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II.
