This section contains descriptions on the abilities for Knuckles.

------------
Gliding Jump
------------
  If you've played S&K, you should recognize this move. After you jump, press
and hold down A. Then Knuckles will glide through the air. Any enemy that
encounters his fists will take a hit.

----------
Wall Climb
----------
  Knuckles can grab onto a wall and climb on it (just jump towards a wall).
Remember that there are some surfaces that Knuckles can't climb on.

---
Dig
---
  You need the Shovel Claws in order to dig. To dig, first stand on a grassy
or dirt spot. Then press B/X and A at the same time. Use the digging ability
to uncover hidden items.

------------
Punch Attack
------------
  Simply B/X to punch. Try punching three times to execute a dash punch.

This section contains the walkthrough for Knuckles's quest.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
<<<   STATION SQUARE                                                       >>>
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
  This quest begins with the Egg Carrier heading towards Angel Island, where
Knuckles is guarding the Master Emerald. Knuckles encounters Chaos, and the
Master Emerald is broken into several pieces. And because of this, the island
falls into the ocean.

  So your main objective as Knuckles is to collect the pieces of the emerald
in the various action stages. Head off to the city hall section of Station
Square and destroy the barricade blocking your path to that rather large
structure. Then continue forward and enter the door to play your first action
stage.

  Now go through the hotel and enter the casino area. As before, you have to
hit the button in order to play the Casinopolis stage. So climb up a wall and
glide into the button. Then go through the door.

  Upon completing this action stage, Knuckles will have a vision, like the
other characters. Go to the other side of the temple and run down the long
path to view Tikal and her father talking. Now Knuckles reappears back in
Station Square.

  Return back to the hotel, and you'll see Robotnik holding something in his
hand. Knux assumes it's a piece of the Master Emerald. Enter the elevator to
follow him.

  Robotnik shows Knuckles what he was holding -- a Chaos Emerald. The doc
wants to have a little fun and would like to see how you fare against his
aquatic critter.

  This boss can be a tad tricky. If you attempt to attack Chaos, he'll block
your attack with his shield. So in order to do any damage, you must hit him
while he is off-guard. Keep running around, and when Chaos throws a punch,
nail him. If you were quick enough, you'll do the damage. Repeat the process.
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

  After you beat Chaos, Robotnik gives a little "information" about Sonic to
Knuckles. He says that the blue hedgehog is also looking for the Master
Emerald pieces. And as usual, Knuckles believes it...


<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
<<<   MYSTIC RUINS                                                         >>>
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
  When you first get here, enter the cave to the left of Tails's workshop. In
this cave, you can pick up the Shovel Claws. After collecting it, dig in the
patch of dirt nearby to find the "Monkey Destruction Switch" (great name =P).
Then just chuck it at the monkey guard to blow him up and open the gate. Pick
up the switch, exit the cave, and go the Angel Island section of the Mystic
Ruins.

  Use the switch to destroy the monkey guard here. Go through the gate to
enter another action stage.

  Once you're done here, head back to the main area of MR and step on the
grassy plain to find Sonic and Tails. Knuckles wants the emerald pieces of
Sonic, so you'll have to fight him. S&K collide with one another, and Sonic
loses two Chaos Emeralds. Robotnik flies in and takes him. Knuckles then
realizes that he's been tricked (you'd think he would've learned by now not
to trust Robotnik...).

B O S S  :  C H A O S   4
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
  No problem here. Just glide around and nail Chaos on the head when he 
surfaces.
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

  Robotnik then introduces the gang to his Egg Carrier. Sonic and Tails plan
to get on the carrier, while Knux says he has some unfinished business. Jump
on the nearby minecart to enter the jungle. You should notice a small, gold
echidna doll close to you. Pick it up and head off to the temple. There are
two pedestals here. Place the doll in the appropiate slot and go back to the
ladder where you first entered. Take the rightmost path until you reach Big's
hut. Climb on top of the tree, and you should see a small walkway on the rock
wall. Glide over there and pick up the Fighting Gloves. Now return back to
that ladder.

  This time take the left path. As you're walking down the path, pay VERY
close attention to the jungle wall on the right. You should see a small cave
of sorts. Go through and dig in the dirt patch to find the silver doll. Go
back to the temple, drop the statue in the correct slot, and enter the hole
in the ground.

  Once you complete the Lost World stage, Knuckles will have another vision.
Keep running forward to talk with Tikal. Then Knuckles reappears back on Angel
Island. He attempts to reassemble the Master Emerald, but he realizes he does
not have enough pieces.

  Head to the jungle area again and glide past the temple to find Robotnik's
carrier. So hop aboard!


<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
<<<   EGG CARRIER                                                          >>>
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
  Turn around, head forward, and Robotnik transforms the carrier. Turn around
again and you should see a door near you. Enter to it to find the pool area.
Hop into the pool and go through the small doorway. Continue on to play the
SkyDeck action stage.

  After completing this stage, Knuckles has yet another vision. Run forward
and talk with Tikal... Once he wakes up, return to the outside of the Egg
Carrier. You'll see a flash of light up ahead. So go there! And you fight
Chaos for the last time...

  Same as with Sonic. Pick up the little robots that fall out of the sky,
throw it into Chaos's mouth, and then punch him. But this time around, things
will be a little more difficult. Two of the green panels on the floor are
missing and falling into the gaps causes you to lose your Rings.
