Here's something that I *NEVER* saw mentioned on a Sonic site. Back when Sonic 3 was first released, McDonald's had Happy Meal bags related to the game. (Which means that they most likely had matching toys as well.) But one thing stuck out about the bag that I still remember to this day. They had a little box where you could write down the highest scores you got as various versions of Sonic. The versions listed were... get this... * Sonic * Super Sonic * Hyper Sonic * Atomic Hyper Sonic is weird enough, since he's only accessible in Sonic 3 and Knuckles; but ATOMIC? Who the hell was Atomic?! What, was there supposed to be *21* emeralds at some point?! I know that this story lacks visual proof (because I saw that bag almost 15 years ago), but that is still engrained in my mind's eye. I am 100% certain that the bag mentioned Hyper Sonic and Atomic, because I was frustrated once I actually got the game over how I couldn't figure out how to play as them.
