while I was play S3&k... along time ago actually I noticed this odd glitch. while playing act 2 of launch base zone. you encounter an underwater giant ring chamber very close to the start of the stage I discovered that by collecting the ring activating the sonic super transformation inside this chamber and pausing at exactly the right moment causes sonics colour pallet to alter for just a split second so that he bares a heavy resembalance to a certain ultimate lifeform, behold...

I've also noticed sonic turning orange maintaining his blue colour just after transforming and a glitch in hydrocity zone act 2 which somehow allows sonic to remain yellow but in his standard sonic sprite form after beating the boss.

How may attempts did it take in order for you to get that?

I discovered this years ago back when sonic 3 and knuckles was still relatively new so I can capture it almost everytime now. course I obviously didn't realise the bizzare colour coincidence with shadow not around back then (time paradox?). essentially what I did was trigger sonics super transformation and imediately after pause usually catching sonic as he pulls in his arms and legs and then unpause and a split second later re-pause you should notice the colour change and with a bit of luck have just enough time to react and press the pause button. but the effect only last sabout half a second. if done right right you'll get sonic doing his super sonic roar but with back and black colouring.

not quite shadow granted but pretty damn close.
