In the American version of the manual, the character is named Princess
Sally, even though she bears no resemblance to the Princess Sally in the
American cartoons and comic; she looks like a pink hedgehog in a bobbysox
outfit. I haven't seen the British comic, so I wouldn't know for sure,
but I suspect this is the character to which you refer when you say "Amy
Rose". (Personally, I think it was silly to rename the character for
this side of the pond, but that's IMHO.)

The American cover's a bit different; if I recall, it depicts Sonic and
RoboSonic leaping for a Time Gem (sort of like the faceoff in basketball)
and a UFO (from the bonus round) exploding.

By asking on the list and finding out. (:3 Now you know. And I know
not to assume that just because you don't live in Japan means you have
the same versions of Sonic we do (I already knew there were some
differences in the Japanese vs. American versions of the games).

Actually, it's a pink hedgehog lady in a green dress (Sally). Just to be
extra confusing, I guess. (:3
