The manual says that Eggman sent the HBH after the ruby before the start of the game, so it seems those egg robos were the HBH even before their transformation.

Great video! Just wanted to make a small edit to Mania's ending. That portal at the end of the good ending is most likely how Classic Sonic got to Sonic Forces, seeing as the Phantom Ruby has the same properties as the gem on Infinite's chest. It makes the same sounds, manipulates the virtual world, and has the same look!

OK wait. The Hard-Boiled Heavys At first were just regular eggman robots. They were TURNED into The Hard-Boiled Heavys by the phantom ruby, the source of that wierd energy.

To keep up to date, here's the order in Classic Sonic's dimension: Sonic 1 Sonic CD Sonic 2 Sonic Generations Sonic 3 and Knuckles Sonic Mania Sonic Forces Sonic Mania Adventures Sonic Mania Plus. And then some other Classic Sonic games that came out before Sonic 3&K.

Sonic CD happens before Sonic the Hedgehog 2 because there is a clear transition from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 to Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and you also forgot Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 and Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 which happen after Sonic Mania in the timeline.

since everyone here is too stupid to research here's the actual timeline. Sonic 1 Sonic 2 8-Bit Tails Adventures Sonic 2 Tails Sky Patrol Sonic CD Sonic 3&K Sonic Generations Sonic Mania after Generations there is a timeline split meaning any classic styled game after the events of Generations does not apply to modern sonics timeline

Everyone's doing it, so here's my take on Sonic's timeline: for modern Sonic, every canon game but Mania happened in the order they came out in, only cd and 2 being switched. So to me modern's timeline is this (and by the way, I'm only including the games that are confirmed canon or I consider canon instead of a different game): Sonic 1, Sonic cd, Sonic 2, Sonic 3&k, Sonic 4 (all episodes), Sonic adventure, Sonic adventure 2, Sonic heroes, Sonic Rush, Sonic Rivals, Sonic Rush adventure, Sonic Rivals 2, Sonic Unleashed, Sonic colors, Sonic Generations, Sonic Lost World, Sonic Forces. I'm not counting '06 as canon, but even if it was, we need an excuse for Sonic to know Blaze and Silver in Generations since '06 timeline got removed, which is why I count rush and rivals as canon. Now classic Sonic's timeline is a bit different in my eyes. I personally think that both classic Sonic's we've seen so far are the same one. Yes in the Egg Dragoon fight Eggman said he's from a different dimension, but it wouldn't be the first time SEGA messed up dimensions and timelines (*cough, cough* Blaze *cough*), so I'm sticking with this. Another thing that might seem confusing is the order I put cd and 2 in. In modern's timeline I put them (in my eyes) canonically, but in classic's timeline I put them chronologically. Why? Because classic Sonic doesn't seem to know who Amy is in Generations. And before you yell at me, let me explain. In the last cutscene of Generations (not the post-credits one), Amy compliments Sonic, saying 'he was all great!'. Now notice how different the reactions are. Modern Sonic scratches his head as if he's embarassed, but classic Sonic just looks (adorably) surprised. And come on, you would remember a pink hedgehog madly in love with you, even if she looks a bit different. Had he gone through cd yet, he would've put two and two together and realized that was Amy. This leads me to believe cd didn't happen yet in classic's timeline, but he had to have gone through (or at least be somewhere in) 2, since classic Tails was there. So how I think classic's timeline went is this: Sonic 1, Sonic 2 (or at least some part of it), Sonic Generations, Sonic cd, Sonic 3&k, Sonic Mania, Sonic Forces. If you're wondering why I put 3&k this late into the timeline, Generations must've happened somewhere around 2, and 3&k happened after cd, which (in this timeline) happened after 2 and Generations. If you want you can switch 3&k and cd or place 3&k before Generations, it won't change the continuity much, but the rest has to stay the same for anything to make sense. So yeah, that's my take on the timelines. And it's my take alone, don't say it's wrong because something in here doesn't make sense with your canon. It's my opinion, and my opinion only. Opinion and fact are two entirely different things, something the Internet doesn't seem to realize nowadays.

There’s a lot of debate on the placement of Sonic CD, and so I want to try and settle it. CD technically takes place before Sonic 2. From the real world standpoint, Sonic CD was being developed by Sega of Japan shortly after Sonic 1. Meanwhile, Sonic 2 was being developed by Sega of America shortly after Sonic 1. Considering Sonic was created by Sega of Japan, their sequel is more reputable than Sonic 2, theoretically placing it before said American sequel. On a story standpoint, Tails doesn’t appear in Sonic CD, and after Sonic 2 it was established that Tails followed with Sonic wherever he went (yeah, Tails is in the mobile port, but as an unlockable character. Does that really count? Besides, he wasn’t in the original game, when the game’s canon was established, so I personally don’t think the mobile port has much credibility). Another thing is that Sonic doesn’t fly the Tornado to Little Planet, he runs there. After Sonic 2, he flew the Tornado everywhere he went. And then as far as the robots that Sonic fights go, and why he doesn’t just fight Metal Sonic each time as opposed to Silver/Mecha Sonic, Metal was only meant to be fast. He doesn’t have a whole lot of fighting capability, whereas Silver/Mecha Sonic are not only quite obviously built to fight, but fought Sonic in an enclosed arena, where speed was relatively irrelevant. Finally, it was established that Sonic 3 occurs right after Sonic 2, with no time passing between them. Going by that, CD must come before or after Sonic 2 and 3, and coming after 3 doesn’t make sense. Oh, and people have brought up Sonic 4, but Sonic 4 features modern Sonic, which means it takes place long after the original games. And that’s why I think CD comes before Sonic 2. If you have any counterpoints or anything I missed, I’d love to hear it.

S3&k came before sonic cd
CJSai#64 (8 months ago)
Nope! *Mistake #1 CD's placement* It can only take place before Sonic 2 or after Knuckles. Not in between. Robotnik goes straight from 2 to 3&K, so there's no way he had a diversion in between. *Mistake #2 You forgot Generations* Yes it takes place in the future, but it still happened for Classic Sonic. It is a HUGE omission because it caused a split in the original chronology. It's only because of Generations that Mania can take place, since the Classic world is now a separate dimension due to being a separate timeline, which caused Modern Eggman to send the Phantom Ruby (prototype) to the Mania verse in the first place. All of this leads to... *not really a Mistake #3 but a minor nitpick: acknowledging the split* So yeah. Everything except for Generations (Classic side) and Mania happened for Modern Sonic in his past. However Classic Sonic is currently living a new timeline with brand new adventures that Modern never experienced. So yeah, Generations' ending and Forces' "retcon" ultimately was a semi-reboot, because it means now we get NEW Classic games with no relation to Modern.

Sonic CD takes place before Sonic 2. Sonic CD's Little Planet was basically a prototype Death Egg (hinted at being constructed during Sonic 1). Sonic 3 takes place right after part 2. Then it goes into Mania

Do an article comics timeline please
Justice Hammonds (8 months ago)
The classic sonic in sonic mania is a different dimension sonic from the classic sonic that we all know from generations. After the events of generations, the timeline had to be messed up because the classic sonic has to remember all the zones and places he went in generations. And the gem in sonic mania that stops time and space makes the exact sound in sonic forces when infinite uses his power. And the most crucial detail is when classic sonic goes fighting eggman in green hill, he says that he’s from another dimension. So this proves your video is wrong up to sonic mania and you should revise your research and make a new video. But that’s my opinion. Who’ll listen to me anyhow?

You guys left out sega sonic the hedgehog, the game that takes place before sonic 1 where mighty, sonic and Ray were captured and had to escape eggmans facility and defeat him. You also forgot to mention Generations

i know this will trigger people, but i think sonic cd happens after sonic 3 and knux, why you may ask, well it's confirmed that tails is the one who teached sonic how to spin dash, and metal sonic is the most powerful metal copy of sonic, so it has to happen after sonic 3 and knux.
