Sonic's arrest was a conspiracy

Postby Triert » Fri Jul 28, 2017 12:44 am

Thank you again tvtropes
Sonic Adventure 2 seems to have an Idiot Plot where people can't tell the difference between Sonic and Shadow, resulting in Sonic being framed when Shadow steals the Chaos Emerald. However, it becomes fridge brilliance when you consider that the organization that blamed Sonic was G.U.N., which may have been framing him in order to hide Shadow's existence.

Tails is yellow

GUN knew they arrested the wrong fellow.

That aside, I imagine the reason GUN had Sonic arrested was because they planned to have him help them defeat Eggman as well as secure Shadow. Rouge working as a double agent would have made for a very interesting Sonic Adventure 2 had Sonic not escaped at the start of the game.

Sonic was actually arrested for vandalism of public property.

Little known fact that doesn't seem to get mentioned anywhere.

What kind of destruction nets you a stay in Sonic Universe Alcatraz?

If I recall, he only destroyed those cars after they arrested him.

Well yeah. That was pretty obvious.

Rouge was working with the President rather than GUN in this game (after all, it was GUN who covered up the information she was trying to investigate), so she wouldn't have acted differently in another scenario.

Being able to control the flow of gravity can be very useful in space.

Project Shadow heavily involved Gerald's research with the Chaos Emeralds. Notice how he built a replica of the Emerald Shrine on Angel Island. What does Angel Island do? It floats. Certainly a scientist would find Chaos energy's effect on gravity highly intriguing.

Given the nature of the chaos monsters in the ARK, his research must have been pretty advanced. The time stopping nodes too!

Makes one wonder how much good Gerald could've done for Humanity and Anthro-kind if his research hadn't been bogged down by military bureaucracy and said military hadn't decided to execute him and seal away his research for whatever reason. I also wonder if Ivo might not have started on his path to world domination had his Grandfather survived to be a living rolemodel.

Also, artificial Gravity is sort of a basic requirement if you don't want you're orbiting space lab to have everything constantly in free fall. The real-life International Space Station performs many low-gravity experiments, but just moving around the station is a challenge since everything that isn't attached to the walls, floor, or ceiling just floats in midair and there isn't enough gravity to give a proper sense of down.

And while mistaken identity doesn't seem too farfetched considering there aren't that many hedgehogs capable of moving at supersonic speeds and that Sonic's fur has been known to spontaneously change color, I agree a botched attempt to recruit Sonic and trying to keep Shadow's existence underwraps makes more sense.
Just so you know, I am blind.

Those who approach life like a child playing a game, moving and pushing pieces, possess the power of kings.
