I keep reading all of these articles, and I am annoyed by one thing: there is a lot of spculation about there being a "sonic Rush" continuity and a "Storybook Series" continuity. If you know what I am talking about, then i'll say this: There should only be three genres of continuities; Sonic Games, sonic comics, and Other Media. I don't care how many people are against it but all of the Sonic games are all in one continuity.--Milotheechidna 19:29, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Well it's a bit more complicated than just Games, Comics and Books but not that complicated. It's important to know that though that when though S&tSR and S&tBK are a StoryBook series, they are not exactly a seperate series but more like a "Sub-series". After all despite Wildfire or Caliburn this is the exact same Sonic from the games than anywhere else or original. The continualities take the form of litrature located on Earth... or S&tBK could be based on actual history as it doesn't seem Sonic was summoned into a book.
For the cartoons there are 4 different Sonic cartoons which are AoSTH, SatAM, Underground and X. However only 2 of these cartoons have close relations to each other but not by much, those two are Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Underground since both Robotniks are Robotropolis are simular it could be an alternate timeline (Or in the Archie Comics an alternate dimension.) in Sonic X the only possible evidence to relate Sonic X with Archie or SatAM is the unnamed dimension and homeworld of Sonic which could be Mobius but the name was never mention (By my memory). As for the first cartoon AoSTH, thats aimed for more younger audiences, it lacked little of a serious plot and have a slapstick edge of rubbery metal and no actual death.
As for the Comics there has been 2 publishers who made a variety of Sonic comics but mostly of the same series. That be Fleetway who made the Sonic the Comic and Archie who did Sonic the Hedgehog. While both homeworlds of Sonic's are called Mobius as well as simular Robotnik's (Snivley was also gonna be in StC but Nigel Kitching thought he was entitled to base his comic after Archie, when he had some creative rights he went with Grimer) eitherway there are some drastic differences between both publishers... besides one being American and other being British and out of print. One of the main differences between the comics and the games is that they almost have nothing to do with each other, only by certain characters whom based of games.--Mystic Monkey 20:38, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Thank you Mystic. That's exactly what I'm trying to say. The different game series like the Rush and Storybooks aren't exactly different continuities but sub-series, all part of one story--Milotheechidna 21:10, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

NP. I forgot about the "Rush" series, but though based in an anlternate reality, still same Sonic, different story and the story usually ends with Sonic going home. Another example is the Sonic Adventure series, what sets them differently from the games before it was that it was 3D, each character had voices and stories but still but all based in the same world.--Mystic Monkey 21:53, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
