There's no such thing as "Sonic (S&K Palette)". The general palette used in Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles are one and the same. Same applies to his Super form and his Hyper form. Same applies to Knuckles. And just because there's no underwater over in Sonic & Knuckles, doesn't mean "there's less palettes". I'm guessing you've not seen the Flash Cycle palettes on my current sheets for Mushroom Hill, Lava Reef, Sky Sanctuary, Doomsday and Mecha Sonic?

The long and short of it is this: the two games may be graphically coherent, but because they were released separately, it's logical to keep them separate, and in doing so helps with keeping the content organised as you can see it. The palette rules were cited as an example, but there's a lot more going on than obviously just that - for example, two of the Bonus Stages belong to the Sonic & Knuckles since that's where they were properly used first, and only appear in Sonic 3's portion of the lock-on game precisely because of the lock-on.

and since there is no underwater, less pallets to worry about, really we would need super pallete hyper pallete and knukles cutscene differed from ingame

well, we could have a sheet for knuckles and sonic (ex: Sonic (S&K pallete))

The palette rules for each game are different - there is no underwater sets for Sonic & Knuckles, where as S&K have more objects that rely on the character palettes. Merging the two pages would create a mess of content. Earlier comments elaborate further.

in my opinion, I think sonic 3 and sonic and knuckles should be in one game and not 2 here mainly it is because sonic and knuckles is sonic 3 part 2

...Stunning... ...Original...
...Sonic 3 climbs back to the top -- check it out!...

Greek, Gaia. But I can craft a name in Cyrillic too.

On the bright side Dolphman, the Observer (now in russian) can't touch your customs.

Again with removing my sheets? >:(

@TheVengefulRevolvenant: Mecha Sonic isn't in Sonic 3, it's only in Sonic & Knuckles.
Apr 8, 2020, 11:11 PM
where's mecha sonic?

Either way, the current boss names should be kept until official English names are provided. I actually like these names.

(BTW this is probably common knowledge, but the final boss has been named Big Arm officially.)

As far as I was able to find on Google, Sega of America never actually gave the bosses names. The badniks appear in the manual of the name, with new names different from the Japanese ones, but the bosses were not shown. And I could find no record of names coming from SOA anywhere, so either they transliterated the Japanese names, or they literally don't have English names at all.
Dec 16, 2019, 1:04 AM
Are we sure it’s not just Japanese vs English names?
Dec 15, 2019, 9:25 PM
@Observer At the same time, there's no harm in keeping it after a slash, since it was indeed intended for the games moreso than their comic adaptation. It's not like how the Archie Comics called Fire Breath an "Assaulting Batter Blimp" in the comic itself, that being a misattribution to the manual's "Flying Battery Blimp."
Dec 15, 2019, 9:04 PM
I feel as though the topic of the names is going to get twisted out of sorts if it proceeds to carry on.

This is where I stand on it: The Fleetway series was an adaption to the games, much like Archie's was. And much like Archie had done, Fleetway had taken more than a few liberties in its adaptation of the game series and the storylines (where applicable) therein.

This extends to their names for the Boss Units, because in 1994, it wasn't like we could get their names to them like we did in Megaman. However, using the names provided by the adaptor, instead of the source, carries with it misconceptions and will result in arguments like this one.

As such, I believe using Sonic Team's intended names would suffice better than Fleetway's, as they made and named the units, not Fleetway; the latter worked with what they had, which was not a lot of on-screen name information for the units.

@Sid That's like saying "Don't call them Goombas, they're only called KURIBO!" Exactly like saying that, in fact.
Names that officially-affiliated localizers give are just as valid as the developers'.
Dec 15, 2019, 7:52 PM
Um, no? The actual developers gave them names. Those are their names.
Dec 15, 2019, 5:07 AM
@Sid An official guide from the makers of the Fleetway comics. As such, they are technically just as official as the Japanese loanword names.
Dec 15, 2019, 3:32 AM
So, why do some of the bosses have 2 names listed? Big Shaker, Twin Hammer, and Drill Mobile are the actual, official names for those bosses. Where did the other names come from?

What Sheet Is The Insta Shield On?
Nov 17, 2019, 8:30 PM
@Jacob: That's what I meant. :P

@Void-the-Bat actually, Tails is using his S2 sprites in this.

Unless that's what you mean. In that case I'm stupid.
Nov 17, 2019, 6:24 PM
@Benjamin: I believe Tails's sprites are the same aside from palette color and assignment differences. Sonic's are a different story though.
