Other features



  • On cover A, there is an advertisement for "Chaos Cola" and features Shadow holding a cup of it. This is in reference to the Chaos Cola and Chaos Soda billboards in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2.
  • The kindergarten principal from Sonic Adventure 2 can be seen as part of the crowd on cover A.
  • Two Chao on cover A look similar to Sonic and Shadow. The two can be seen mimicking the duo's infamous rivalry between each other.
    • The Dark Chao that looks like Shadow is based on the Dark Chao that has appeared in several pieces of Sonic Channel artwork with Shadow.
  • On cover A, there is a Chao that can be seen with a rock for headwear and wears a tag that reads the number "8". This is in reference to the SpongeBob SquarePants episode, "The Great Snail Race", where Patrick enters in his pet rock, Rocky, as a participant in the Bikini Bottom Snail Race and is given the race number of "8".
  • On cover A, a capybara can be seen eating ice cream while a Flicky sits on his head. This was a character concept that was originally drawn by Diana Skelly and requested by Aaron Hammerstrom, the artist for the cover.[4]
