Or are you just trying to become unstoppable at 2-P games? If you can answer yes to any question here, then this guide is for you! I have put together a comprehensive guide to bring you to victory! ****General Strategies**** 1)Choose a battle, charecter, and level you can deal with. Train yourself before attempting Random. 2)Practice makes perfect!! Train by yourself, learn the terrain, know your moves 3)For Chao Race & Karate, train your chao like you would for Emblems 4)Try to earn all Karts and Costumes. This lets you have more variety to try to beat out your biggest rival. ****Characters**** ++Action Race++ Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic's pretty much unchanged from 1-P. He keeps his spin dash and light dash moves for extra speed. As he is similar to 1-P, many players like him. Special Attacks 20 Rings-Speed Up : 10-Second Speed Boost 40 Rings-Sonic Wind : Attacks your enemy 60 Rings-Time Stop : Freezes opponent for 10 Seconds Sonic's Secret Costume: All of Sonic's "A" Ranks earn him a PSO Racing uniform. His stats are unchanged. Special attacks 20 Rings-Sonic Wind : Attacks enemy Shadow the Hedgehog Shadow's unchanged, just like Sonic. He can Spin Dash and Light Dash like in 1-P. Play him like Sonic, just in an evil mood. Special Attacks 20 Rings-Speed Up : 10-Second Speed Boost 40 Rings-Chaos Spear : Attacks your enemy 60 Rings-Chaos Control : Freezes opponent for 10 Seconds Shadow's Secret Costume A PSO Racing uniform for all "A" Ranks. Looks cooler than Sonic's because it's black, not pink. Special Attacks 20 Rings-Chaos Control : Freezes opponent for 5 Seconds Amy Rose She's slower, can't jump as high, and has no Dashing boosts. She relies on her special attacks to win. Plus, nobody I know (not a lot of people, so don't flame!!), except my sister, doesn't like to use her. Special Attacks 10 Rings-Speed Up : 10-Second Speed Boost 20 Rings-Storming Heart : Attacks opponent 30 Rings-Amy Flash : Freezes opponent for 20 seconds Metal Sonic He's really fast. No brakes, though. Instead of special attacks, he's got Black Shield. He's great for Masters to use. Black Shield Hold B Button to protect from all damage.

Funny how it's called "Tornado" in 1-P. Ah, well, it's the same thing as far as I care. NOTE: keijiro_hayashi has told me that the biplane is the "Tornado" and the walker is the "Cyclone". I thank him for clearing it up, but it has no effect on gameplay. 20 Rings-Laser Missile : Multiple Homing Missiles 40 Rings-Rocket Launcher : Launches 12 Rockets up 60 Rings-Power Laser : HUGE Front-End Laser Tail's Secret Costume Earn all 25 A Ranks for Tails to get a clasic Red Cyclone. He has no special attacks, but is EXTREMELY FAST! Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnikk Like Tails, Eggman is similar to 1-P. He stays just like Tails. 20 Rings-Laser Missile : Multiple Homing Missiles 40 Rings-Rocket Launcher : Launches 12 Rockets up 60 Rings-Power Laser : HUGE Front-End Laser Eggman's Secret Costume Earn all 25 A Ranks for Robotnikk to get Black Camoflage. He has no Lock-on, but does have a constant Power Laser. 20 Ring-Power Laser : HUGE Laser from front side. Chao Walker A fast character, this guy relies on attacking quickly. His speed is high, as is his Special as he needs less rings. He's got barely any attack and defense 20 Rings-Booming Missile : Multiple Homing Missiles 40 Rings-Rumble Launcher : Launches 12 Rockets up 60 Rings-Zap Laser : HUGE Front-End Laser Dark Chao Walker Not a fast character, this guy relies on attacking strongly. His speed is low, but he's got quite a bit of attack and defense. 20 Rings-Crazy Rush : Multiple Homing Missiles 40 Rings-Hell Bomber : Launches 12 Rockets up 60 Rings-Dark Finish : HUGE Front-End Laser Shooting Ratings Tails Speed:2/5 Attk:4/5 Dfns:4/5 Special:4/5 Ease of Use:5/5 Game:5/5 Costume:Speed 5/5, Special 0/5 Eggman Speed:2/5 Attk:4/5 Dfns:4/5 Special:4/5 Ease of Use:5/5 Game:5/5 Costume:Speed 2/5, Special 5/5 Chao Walker Speed:4/5 Attk:2/5 Dfns:2/5 Special:5/5 Ease of Use:4/5 Game:3/5 Dark Chao Walker Speed:1/5 Attk:5/5 Dfns:5/5 Special:5/5 Ease of Use:3/5 Game:4/5 ++Treasure Hunt Race++ Knuckles the Echidna This is Knuckles. And he's back. He's been away for a while... I'm off track. He's a member of the amcient race of Angel Island, and it's his job to find the emeralds, just as in 1-P. He can't use his Air Necklace, but oh, well. Knux is still very good. Special Attacks 20 Rings-Hammer Punch : Trips Opponent, Messing up controls 40 Rings-Thunder Arrow : Damages and messes up controler 60 Rings-Power Flash : Freezes opponent for 10 seconds Knux's Secret Costume The music will get insanely repetitive as you go for 5 levels of pure searching for needed items. Your reward is an Ancient Echidna Costume. It looks cool with a picture of an emerald shard on the front. Special Attacks 20 Rings-Thunder Arrow : Damages and messes up controler Rouge the Bat Rouge is secretly in love with Knuckles. She loves jewels, plays just like Knux, and loves me to beat her. I don't play as her, only because I like Knuckles better. She's just like 1-P Special Attacks 20 Rings-Hip Drop : Trips Opponent, Messing up controls 40 Rings-Black Wave : Damages and messes up controler 60 Rings-Charm Ray : Freezes opponent for 10 seconds Rouge's Secret Costume Kart Race, Eggman Keys, Master Emerald Shards, Chaos Emeralds, 100 Rings, and Lost Chao. Speed is the name of the Costume Game. Gotta be fast to earn a Black Fur/Gothic Costume. It's been called both. She looks better in it. Now you know I'm a guy, hehehe... Special Attacks 20 Rings-Charm Ray : Freezes opponent for 5 seconds Tikal the Echidna She's a member of the amcient race of Angel Island, just like Knux and it's her job to find the emeralds. Tikal has little power, and her Radar has short range. Special Attacks 20 Rings-Wrath of Gaia : Trips Opponent, Messing up controls 40 Rings-Heaven's Justice : Damages and messes up controler 60 Rings-Captive Light : Freezes opponent for 20 seconds Chaos Zero He's slow. He's strong. He's a remake of Chunky Kong from DK64. He has immense strength for special as well. I'm done. Special Attacks 20 Rings-Chaos Impact : Trips Opponent, Messing up controls 40 Rings-Chaos Strike : Damages and messes up controler 60 Rings-Chaos Bind : Freezes opponent for a full 30 seconds Treasure Hunt Ratings Knuckles Speed:4/5 Power:5/5 Radar:5/5 Special:5/5 Ease of Use:5/5 Game:5/5 Costume:No Change Rouge Speed:4/5 Power:5/5 Radar:5/5 Special:5/5 Ease of Use:5/5 Game:5/5 Costume:No Change Tikal Speed:5/5 Power:2/5 Radar:2/5 Special:3/5 Ease of Use:4/5 Game:3/5 Chaos 0 Speed:2/5 Power:5/5 Radar:5/5 Special:5/5 Ease of Use:4/5 Game:4/5 ++See Chao/Kart Race for more info++ ****Levels**** ++Action Race++ =Level 1= Downhill Race A simple boarding race in a City Escape type level. Grind Race Grind through Eggman's pyramid to a goal ring. Before the 2nd checkpoint, jump at the end of the rail for a bonus rail with about 40 rings in item boxes. =Level 2= City Escape It ends after yopu run down the wall, but not any other structure changes. Metal Harbor No missile at the end, the rocket's been replaced with platforms, some new springs, and less ring paths. White Jungle Ends where you get the Air Shoes. There are some extra springs in case you miss a vine. =Level 3= Green Forest A few side paths are removed, but it's almost exactly the same. Sky Rail Same as 1-P. You know the drill. Radical Highway No Flame Ring pathway, but who cares? Go to 1-P for training. =Level 4= Final Rush No running from pieces of the colony, but it is similar to 1-P. Rails, Rails, Rails! Beat Hero Story for this. Final Chase You don't start on the rail, you end early, and new patterns of Gravity Drums and springs make it different from 1-P. Earn it by beating Dark Story ++Shooting Battle++ =Level 1 : Race= Deck Race Race across a Carier on Weapons Bed. Not bad, no damage meter. Pyramid Race Based on Hidden Base. Shoot Doors, Avoid Spikeballs. =Level 2= Weapons Bed An aircraft carrier. Use the pullies to get to items. Don't fall off! Iron Gate Closed-in area in the prison. Fences separate rings and are re-enforced from theft by Lasers. Hidde Base Duke it out on a pyramid. You're no top, fall off and it's over. Lock-on to unreachable rings. =Level 3= Mission Street One of the many Earthquakes Omochao warns of has caused an isolated section of bridge to appear. Perfect for a duel to the end... beware the H2O. Sand Ocean The revolving platform is here, with side platforms and sand, sand, SAND. Watch yourself. Cosmic Wall Lower Platform. Higher platform. Low gravity. I like it. Lots of rings, plus a space-type Earth background. Sweet. =Level 4= Eternal Engine Split Screen for the final Eggman vs. Tails fight. More rings availible. Watch out for increased chemical containers. Nice graphics. Unlock by stopping the Eggman Empire. Lost Colony My favorite shooter level. It's the maze-like room with the Jet Engine, but modified. The size makes it split-screen, and it has a nice stategy aspect, and I'm a thinking man. No brute force here. It's yours for stealin all 7 Chaos Emeralds ++Treasure Hunt Levels++ =Level 1 : One Emerald= Pool Quest Water pool in Aquatic Mine. Planet Quest Dig in Mad Space's Spherical Planet for a jewel =Level 2= Dry Lagoon Just like 1-P. Egg Quarters No Egg-Beetle. Good. Just don't be too careless. Security Hall Can't get to the top floor. All safes are open at once. It's small. =Level 3= Wild Canyon Gotta chase a bat, uh-huh, she's...oops, off topic again, hehehe... Fairly small, just like 1-P Pumpkin Hill Tres montanas, three gems. Get two in this 1-P environment to win it. Meteor Herd You know how these levels are. The ARK resides above, the tower cannot be opened as far as floor goes. Beware, as it is fairly large. =Level 4= Death Chamber Ultimate Victory unlocks this level, with the other Hero Story Level 4's. No water-filled passage to lost chao, Plenty of room for The Master Emerald shards. Practice makes annoyance. Mad Space 14 Dark Levels, 8 Bosses, this is unlocked. HUGE, and reversed clues. An ultimate test of patience. ****Chao/Kart Race**** ++Chao++ Know Your Chao. See a chao FAQ for Stategy on raising. ++Kart Race++ Basically the same as 1-P, but one of the opponents is now a human. Piece o' Cake if your trained. ****Legal Info**** This guide Copyright 2002 Mike Snook. You may not steal my guide in part or in whole without permission.
