It could be due to the heat generated from friction with the air. Since his
legs stick out farther than his arms, they would experience the most friction
and melt first. Also, his arms are pointing directly into the airstream,
which also reduces drag and hence frictive heating, while his legs dangle
down, broadside to the wind.

Although Mecha-Sonic has titanium steel alloy skin, I would guess that his
arm and leg joints are weak spots...

Antoine is a buffoon.

Sally wears most of her tail on her head...
Regardless of her species, I just love the way Spaz drew her in Sonic #25,
especially when she is parachuting (on pp. 19 and 21).
