2. Introduction
Welcome to another fantastic guide made by Snoopdigger, my newest in-
depth FAQ, and not my last. I have already created a FAQ/Walkthrough
for Medabots AX and Animal Crossing, and now I turn my attention to
Sonic. This guide is made for boss battles on Sonic Adventure 2 Battle
for Gamecube. SA2B is without a doubt one of the greatest game on the
planet! Three different modes, six different characters, and the cute
little AI life forms known as Chao, what is there not to like. Maybe I
should get you up to speed on Sonic. Sonic is a supersonic hedgehog
that, at top speed, can travel at the speed of sound. On his debut game
for the Sega Genesis (Sonic the Hedgehog) Sonic and Dr. Robotnik
(a.k.a. Dr. Eggman) face off for the first time. Sonic came back onto
Genesis with Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (with a new character, the fox
Tails), and later for Sonic the hedgehog 3. Sonic and Knuckles featured
two characters that you could play as, a whole new aspect of the game.
Sonic appeared on Game Gear and the Genesis several more times, but
Sonic 3D Blast was a landmark game that lead into the next generation
of Sonic games. It was a seriously horrible game, but added the feature
of 3D, which led to the two Sonic games on Dreamcast. The first Sonic
game to hit Dreamcast was Sonic Adventure. It had different characters
that you could play as, each with different stories. It adopted AI
creatures called Chao. Sonic Adventure 2 followed and upgraded
everything, including the all-new character known as Shadow. Sonic
Adventure was such a hit; it was put onto Gamecube as Sonic Adventure 2
Battle. You can now enjoy the fun of almost all the Sonic games on the
Sonic Mega Collection for Gamecube. I am writing about the boss battles
in Sonic Adventure 2 Battle. Boss battles are different from the
regular stages. They are one-on-one battles with an enemy, usually in
an enclosed area. The enemy has a health meter on the screen that
starts as blue, but when they are in the critical zone it turns red. If
you have any questions or comments, e-mail me at
patrickhandley@yahoo.com. I really hope you enjoy this.

4. Story
Some people want to view this guide solely to find help on a boss, but
I think that for all the other viewers, I should put the story to make
it fun to read. First, read the chart of the episodes and then read
about them at the bottom. The letters SL stands for Same Location,
meaning that they happen at the same location, at exactly the same
time.

In the game, there are boss battles, which is what the guide is
constructed for. Here is how to view this:

=======================================================================
Big Foot
Guard Robot
=======================================================================
  This robot will do three things: fire machine guns at you, (in air)
fire rockets at you, (on ground) and stand still. While he is flying,
run away. When he lands, wait for him to fire his missiles before
jumping up to his cockpit and do a homing attack. He takes four hits.
=======================================================================
Tips and Tricks
=======================================================================
 1. Stand on a crate or use the bounce bracelet to gain enough height
to hit him in mid-air
 2. Hit him before he starts shooting missiles and quickly strike again
for twice the damage.

=======================================================================
Dr. Eggman
Dr. Robotnik
=======================================================================
  This guy is a wimp. He runs away the  whole match and rarely shoots.
A real pushover. Just keep shooting.
=======================================================================
Tips and Tricks
=======================================================================
None
=======================================================================
Shadow
The Ultimate Life Form
=======================================================================
  This is more of a boss. Three hits    will finish him off. The trick
is to wait for him to home attack, then sneak up behind him and use the
summersault.
=======================================================================
Tips and Tricks
=======================================================================
None
=======================================================================
King Boom Boo
The King of Ghosts
=======================================================================
  He starts by throwing fireballs and trying to eat you. Try to pick up
as many rings as possible before going any further. When he stops and
starts spiting fire, go around the opposite direction and punch the
small ghost. Dig wherever he goes to reveal him and hit him. He takes
four hits.
=======================================================================
Tips and Tricks
=======================================================================
 1. Hit him once and run on the inside of the pillar. Once he stops
flashing red, hit B three times in a row to hit him again.
=======================================================================
Egg Golem
The Golem
=======================================================================
  Okay, you will have to run around on platforms while avoiding the
golem. As soon as he stops moving and starts hitting you, run around to
his back. You will see many platforms on him. Keep jumping up until you
reach the second to last platform, jump, and home-attack that big knob
on his head. After 2-3 hits, he will start rotating his arms around in
a circle from THE HIGHEST POINT. So if you stay on lower ground you are
safe. After 3-4 hits he will begin to fall down on you. Avoid this by
running fast, or by jumping down to the sand. He takes 5 hits.
=======================================================================
Tips and Tricks
=======================================================================
 1. When you hit sand, tap A very fast to save yourself.
 2. Bouncing up the platforms is faster than jumping. Granted, it is
less controllable.
=======================================================================
Rouge
Rouge the Bat
=======================================================================
  The only way to get her is this: When the ground is closed, do the
punch-two-uppercut while running. While you are running on the little
platforms, fly above her and Drill Drive. It takes a while, but if you
pick up your rings a few at a time, you will succeed. She takes 2 hits
before she will use her black wave. When she says "Get ready," that's
your cue to glide and drill drive all around. She takes 4 hits before
you win.

=======================================================================
Tips and Tricks
=======================================================================
None, if you followed the instructions above, you will be fine.
=======================================================================
Dr. Eggman
Dr. Robotnik
=======================================================================
  The last time you saw this guy, he was (and still is) a horrible boss
in the game. Now, he takes masses of damage, and doles out even more.
When he finally stops, hit him as hard as you can. You'll need it. When
he talks, get close to Eggman. If he shoots some missiles, walk fast.
If he shoots his giant laser, hover behind him. It shouldn't be a
problem, since you were close to him. Once behind him, punch Eggie and
give him a dose of your missiles. Granted, it is better to use your
machine gun at him, since he can dodge missiles if he recovers fast
enough.
=======================================================================
Tips and Tricks
=======================================================================
 1. When he shoots his laser, stay close to him!
=======================================================================
Shadow
The Ultimate Life Form

=======================================================================
  While you are trying to defeat him, you are trying to keep from
falling your little platform. It will constantly break away as you run
over it. Use a summersault to hit him for the first two times. Then,
keep using light dash until he uses chaos control to catch up with you.
If you time it right, you will catch him in the middle of a ring
pattern. Use a light dash to quickly hit him until he has one hit left.
Now, fall behind him. Wait until he stops and says "Chaos Spear." Hold
B as soon as you hear something. When he finished saying it, release B
and steer toward him. It may take a few tries to hit him. Be patient.
O, and if you hadn't noticed, he takes five hits.

6. Dark Boss Battles
The dark side of the force...


=======================================================================
Hot Shot
Guard Robot
=======================================================================
  This robot will do three things: fire machine guns at you, (in air)
fire rockets at you, (on ground) and shoot lasers. While he is flying,
run away. When he lands, wait for him to fire missiles before jumping
up to his cockpit and do a homing attack. He takes four hits.
=======================================================================
Tips and Tricks
=======================================================================
 1. When he is charging his lasers, HIT HIM !

real pushover.
=======================================================================
Tips and Tricks
=======================================================================
None
=======================================================================
Flying Dog
Guard Robot
=======================================================================
  This is a different kind of robot. He does everything Hot Shot does
except he will never land. You will have to glide into him.
=======================================================================
Tips and Tricks
=======================================================================
 1. Fly into him low, and keep holding A to keep gliding into Flying
dog for the classic double hit.
=======================================================================
Sonic
Sonic the Hedgehog
=======================================================================
  This is another boss. Three hits will finish him off. The trick is to
wait for him to home attack, then sneak up behind him and use the
summersault.
=======================================================================
Tips and Tricks

=======================================================================
None
=======================================================================
Egg Golem
The Golem

=======================================================================
  KEEP SHOOTING AT ALL COSTS! Sure, run around to avoid his fists of
fury, but you need to keep shooting. After ten hits, a panel will open
up. Hit it your missiles three times to destroy the panel. He has three
panels. If you run low on health, hover down to sand level. But you
will not be able to save yourself if you get caught in the quicksand.
=======================================================================
Tips and Tricks
=======================================================================
KEEP SHOOTING AT ALL COSTS!
=======================================================================
Knuckles
Knuckles the Echidna
=======================================================================
  The only way to get him is this: When the ground is closed, do the
kick-two-upperkick while running. While you are running on the little
platforms, fly above him and Drill Drive. It takes awhile, but if you
pick up your rings a few at a time, you will succeed. He takes 2 hits
before he will use her power lighting. When he says "Now witness my
power," that's your cue to glide and drill drive all around. She takes
4 hits before you win.

None, if you followed the instructions above, you will be fine.

7. Last Boss Battles
You're almost there!


=======================================================================
The Biolizard
The Prototype of the Ultimate Life Form
=======================================================================
  This is, arguably, the best boss in the game. I have divided this
into stages. STAGE 1: He will chase you around. If you go too far
forward, he switches directions and will whack you with his tail. When
he stops, grind up that rail on his head a home-attack his red device
on his back. STAGE 2: Okay, after he chases you around, he starts to
shoot energy balls. They go either high or low. High you should
summersault under, while the low you jump over. Then grind the rail up
to his red device. (do stage 2 twice) STAGE 3: Instead of letting you
grind up the rail, he shoots little energy orbs. Home in on these orbs
and propel yourself to climb all the way up to his red life-support
system. (do stage 3 twice) FINAL STAGE: As soon as you hit him via
orbs, they will automatically start flying in a circle around. Hold
up on the Analog Stick to move toward  his life-support. Keep tapping A
and you will win. He takes six hits. Watch out for the waterway, for it
will sweep you into a great pool and you will die.
=======================================================================
Tips and Tricks
=======================================================================
STAY ALIVE BY TAKING ONE RING AT A TIME
=======================================================================
The Final Hazard
The Prototype of the Ultimate Life Form
=======================================================================
  The control for Super Sonic and Super Shadow are: Analog
stick=direction. A=attack up. B=attack down. You have a ring count that
you must maintain or you spiral down to Earth and die. While you are
racing toward the Final Hazard, you have to hit the little red spot on
him. He will continually shoot lasers and orbs. Dodge them and hit him
six times.
=======================================================================
Tips and Tricks
=======================================================================
If you run low on rings, fly over the Final Hazard to switch
characters.
