Other features


  • The front cover artwork for this volume is the same as the one for Sonic Universe #20. However, it was slightly altered from the original printing, showing Tails with a confident smile instead of a determined frown.
  • This volume includes design and storyline concepts for the Battle Bird Armada created by Ian Flynn and Jon Gray, though they have yet to be implemented. Several design elements were later incorporated into the Armada characters, however, that were not featured in the Tails Adventure game.
  • A footnote in this volume stated that the Sonic Riders adaptation from Sonic the Hedgehog #163-#164 would be appearing in Best of Sonic the Hedgehog Villains, even though it did not appear when it was released. However, an alternate list of stories for that volume was shown on the books listing, where the Sonic Riders adaptation was listed. The reason for this change is unknown.
