Saw one yesterday on an eggman stage where he breaks into the ark its when you stand on the elevator thing and it holds your machineand takes you up while shooting stuff hes on the right just sitting there ---
The Big cameos were largely removed in the GCN version, and some of his in-level appearances were replaced with Rings. He was also removed in the Hero Side for some reason, but he'll still appear in Dark and Final if you tap the basic button at the right moment (or simply hit it repeatedly). His multiplayer appearance in the Egg Walker was also replaced with Dark Chao Walker. Despite this, he still appears alongside the cast of characters in random Chao drawings. This version brought back most of Big's appearances, but forgot about multiplayer, Hero Side cutscenes and Wild Canyon (and maybe a few other levels / hard mode locations). Sonic and the Secret Rings was the only other game to feature Big cameos on a similar scale, though Sonic had to stop at certain areas to see him. Then you can read his journal entries and find out he had some side story to it, whereas Big in Sonic Adventure 2 was pretty much everywhere just because.
Whoever started using the word "canon" in this context, anyway? I hear it all the time now, and I'd like to slap him. - Green Gibbon!
