2. Events within the own game contradict Solaris being able to tank what he can dish out.
3. It's been discussed many times that, even assuming Solaris can take what he can dish out and Sonic, Shadow, and Silver defeated him legitimately, it is a massive outlier compared to almost everything else in the franchise.
I don't recall Salamander or Wizard having any tier 2 feats. As for the Time Eater, the entity itself had the glaring weakness of being piloted by Eggman (Eggmen?...) and having a canon exploitable weakpoint, for the entity was pretty much mindless and did nothing without outside influence.
Wizard and Salamander was faced by 2 Super forms (Burning Blaze and Super Sonic), Salamander was eable to travel trough Dimensions, Wizard was capable of doing the same things as salamander, i think every one need to remember that the power of the Chaos Emerald is pretty much infinite, gems capable to control time, Mephiles was able to summon Solaris by the Emeralds, similar to what happens to Sonic, even that Time Eater had a weakness is pretty stupid, knowing that Eggman is a Super Genius, he was eable to create Dimensions, like in the final part where the Two eggmans was trpped in a white empty dimension.
@Karm Super Sonic is not a brand new transformation (such as say SSG was when Goku performed his 3-B feat) Super Sonic is the same transformation, who has shown consistent limits to its power before and after then just jumped 3 tiers this instance for no given reason. It's like if Vegeta went Great Ape again and this time was able to do Tier 2 level feats and it was never explained why.

I've got something to say on this. The Chaos Emeralds, are artifacts that give "thoughts power". Couldn't it be that the Chaos Emeralds make the user strong enough to face foes that should be hilariously stronger than themselves, and wouldn't that mean that the user only taps into a portion of the chaos emeralds' power when activating it?
The emeralds have at least 3 -4 occasions were they have tier 2 showings of power the solaris, time eater and egg wizard and arguably the egg salamander i believe that the emeralds and super form in general should have a higer rateing but i dont think it will happen it seems to me that the emeralds grant the user as much power as needed to fight the enemy at hand but it is pointless to argue the point even though people such as mario got a massive power boost with no explanation in two instances and he gets his higer tier and then goes back to having troble with lower levels as to were sonic has had more occasion and gets nothing people just saying outlier and leaving it at that but when it is done multiple times it cant be an outlier but again it is pointless because the way they put unless sonic fights universe+- multi-verse enemies every game then any kind of up grade wont happen
The number of times the feat was done, hardly matters. It's that consecutive games show a much weaker scope of power, a scope of power more consistent with the general showings within the franchise hence making such ratings highly doubtful. I do believe this has been discussed before innumerable times.
