    Version 1.46 - 8.19.15
    
    This FAQ is dedicated to my friend Michelle, who has stuck with me, laughed 
    at all my lame jokes and humored me a LOT more than I actually deserve.

    1.46 - 8.19.15
    The emerald locations are randomized, dammit!
    
    1.45 - 5.26.04
    Pretty big update this time; added a Chao section, Glitches section and an 
    FAQ section.
    
    I would also like to apologize to IGN users for the poor formatting that this 
    guide had. That was my fault. It should be fixed now.
    
    1.44 - 5.22.04
    Went through the Action Stage Walkthroughs and seriously touched them up, 
    removing all the useless information contained in them. I added a few other 
    things, but I'll leave you to find out what they are on your own.
    
    1.43 - 5.04.04
    Yes, I know that I haven't answered any emails for the past six months. See, 
    I have been insanely busy, and because of that, I can no longer personally 
    answer questions via email (see section 10 for what you CAN send me). Anyway, 
    in this update, I went through each character's Adventure Walkthrough and 
    rewrote it, adding in tons of detail.
    
    1.42 - 11.13.03
    Added an Emblem Checklist, and a Characters section.
    
    1.41 - 9.21.03
    Went through and improved the spacing somewhat. Also added info on the 
    "Twinkle Circuit" Sub Game, and fixed several moronic mistakes I made.
    
    1.40 - 9.15.03
    Added guides for the three Sub Levels. This walkthrough is now complete! 
    There will probably still be updates, however.
    
    1.39 - 9.14.03
    Added Big's last three Action Stage Walkthroughs, and all of E-102Y's. This 
    walkthrough is nearing completion; all I need to do now is add info on the 
    mini-games.
    
    1.38 - 9.03.03
    Put in Big's first Action Stage Walkthrough. I know this is a pathetically 
    small update, but with school starting and all, I don't have much time for 
    this.
    
    1.37 - 8.29.03
    Added Amy's last Action Stage Walkthrough.
    
    1.36 - 8.28.03
    Added a walkthrough for Amy's second Action Stage.

    One thing that I am asked whenever I talk about this FAQ is: Why did I write 
    it? Well, several reasons. The first is the most obvious: I was bored. I also 
    love the Sonic games, and writing this gave me an excuse to play Sonic 
    Adventure DX for untold hours. Finally, I have used GameFAQs, neoseeker and 
    IGN for quite a few years now and felt compelled to do something in return.
    
    Let me warn you right now: this FAQ contains oodles of spoilers. If you want 
    an FAQ that can help you beat the game without giving the plot away, go find 
    another FAQ. This FAQ holds nothing back when it comes to the plot.
    
    If you have any comments on this FAQ, don't hesitate to send them to me. I am 
    a relatively new FAQ author, so any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
    
    Also, this FAQ has recently undergone massive renovation, so there may be 
    some problems. I'll fix them when I see them; just be patient, or better yet, 
    email me and tell me about them!

    ============================
    3.1 Sonic the Hedgehog [STH]
    ============================
    
    Yup, this is the blue guy himself, who has become Sega's trademark. He is the 
    main character and also has what I myself think are the most fun levels.
    
    =====------------------------
    Sonic's Moves
    =====------------------------
    
    -----
    Homing Attack
    -----
    Upgrades Required: None
    To Execute: Jump, then A in air
    This move sends Sonic forward in the air a short distance. If there is an 
    enemy nearby, Sonic will shoot towards it and destroy it.
    
    -----
    Light Speed Attack
    -----
    Upgrades Required: Ancient Light
    To Execute: Hold B until aurora is blue, then release B
    Once charged up, releasing B will destroy all nearby enemies.
    
    -----
    Light Speed Dash
    -----
    Upgrades Required: Light Speed Shoes
    To Execute: Hold B until aurora is blue, then release B
    Once charged up, release B to make Sonic travel along a path of rings.
    
    -----
    Spin Dash
    -----
    Upgrades Required: None
    To Execute: Press and release B
    This sends Sonic spinning quickly along the ground. You can destroy enemies 
    with it or use it to speed up.

    ==============================
    3.2 Miles "Tails" Prower [MTP]
    ==============================
    
    Sonic's Sidekick, who made his debut in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Genesis. 
    In previous games, he was content with simply following Sonic around... but 
    now, he has his own story!
    
    =====------------------------
    Tails' Moves
    =====------------------------
    
    -----
    Tail Attack
    -----
    Upgrades Required: None
    To Execute: Press B
    Tails spins around and destroys nearby enemies with his tails.
    
    -----
    Continuous Tail Attack
    -----
    Upgrades Required: Rhythm Badge
    To Execute: Hold B
    The same as the Tail Attack, only continuous.
    
    -----
    Flying
    -----
    Upgrades Required: None
    To Execute: Hold A while in air
    Tails can fly for around ten second before he gets tired and falls to the 
    ground. This can be helpful for crossing large gaps and taking shortcuts.
    
    =====------------------------
    Tails' Upgrades

    +-------------------+------------------------+------------------------+
    
    ==============================
    3.3 Knuckles the Echidna [KTC]
    ==============================
    
    Knuckles is the resident "tough guy" in this game. He doesn't trust anyone, 
    but he knows that if he plans to complete his mission, he must allow Sonic to 
    help him.
    
    =====------------------------
    Knuckles' Moves
    =====------------------------
    
    -----
    Digging
    -----
    Upgrades Required: Shovel Claws
    To Execute: Pres A and B together
    Knuckles will dive into the ground and bring up whatever he finds there.
    
    -----
    Gliding
    -----
    Upgrades Required: None
    To Execute: Jump and hold A
    An extremely useful move, this can be used to destroy enemies, cross gaps, or 
    just to move faster. Also, if you run into an enemy while gliding, you will 
    damage it.
    
    -----
    Light Attack
    -----
    Upgrades Required: Gold Claws
    To Execute: Hold B for about a second then release
    Basically, Knuckles stores up energy in himself and then releases it, 
    destroying nearby enemies. It is, essentially, useless.

    ==================
    3.4 Amy Rose [MYR]
    ==================
    
    "She used to have a crush on Sonic, but now Amy can pretty much crush 
    whatever she likes with her massive hammer." (Thanks to Nintendo Power for 
    that quote!)
    
    Amy is the self-proclaimed "girlfriend" of Sonic. She is content with simply 
    following him around all day and getting on his nerves.
    
    =====------------------------
    Amy's Moves
    =====------------------------
    
    -----
    Hammer Attack
    -----
    Upgrades Required: None
    To Execute: Jump and hold A
    Amy's basic attack. This is what you will usually use to damage enemies.
    
    -----
    Hammer Jump
    -----
    Upgrades Required: None
    To Execute: Press B while running
    This makes you jump a lot higher, and will also damage any enemies that 
    happen to be nearby on takeoff.
    
    -----
    Hammer Whirl
    -----
    Upgrades Required: Warrior Feather
    To Execute: Hole B and rotate the control stick
    Amy will spin around and destroy nearby enemies. She will become dizzy if you 
    use this move too much.

    ================
    3.5 E-102Y [YYY]
    ================
    
    Built by Eggman, E-102Y (codename "Gamma") is the robot with a heart that no 
    good game can be without. His story is, in my opinion, the most interesting 
    of the six.
    
    =====------------------------
    E-102Y's Moves
    =====------------------------
    
    -----
    Homing Missile
    -----
    Upgrades Required: None
    To Execute: Hold B to lock on, then release
    E-102Y shoots a missile that homes in on enemies.
    
    -----
    Hovering
    -----
    Upgrades Required: Jet Booster
    To Execute: Hold A while in air
    This is used to cross large gaps, and is very useful.
    
    -----
    Laser Gun
    -----
    Upgrades Required: None
    To Execute: Press B
    E-102Y shoots out a laser that flies in a straight line. You won't use this 
    attack nearly as much as the homing missile.

    =====================
    3.6 Big the Cat [BTC]
    =====================
    
    You've never seen them before in a Sonic game and chances are you won't see 
    them again, but Big and his friend, Froggy, play a large part in this game.
    
    =====------------------------
    Big's Moves
    =====------------------------
    
    -----
    Casting

    Use this to cast your lure.

    =======================================
    4.1 Sonic's Adventure Walkthrough [SDW]
    =======================================
    
    The game starts with Sonic leaping across buildings. He then sees a whole 
    bunch of police cars and, wondering what is going on, follows them. The 
    police are trying to destroy a blue, gel-like creature called Chaos 0, but 
    their weapons have no effect on it. Sonic, coming to the rescue, engages in 
    battle with Chaos 0.
    
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Boss: Chaos 0
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Hits to Defeat: 3
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Chaos 0 is amazingly easy. Grab a ring or two, then hit him with a homing 
    spin attack (Jump, then A in the air) when he stands still. When he's not 
    vulnerable, run around to avoid his attacks.
    
    Just as Sonic is about to apprehend Chaos 0, it slips down a sewer drain. 
    Eggman then appears, and tells Sonic that Chaos is "The God of Destruction".
    
    The next day, Sonic is lounging around at the pool when he sees Tails, in a 
    plane, crash into a nearby beach. Run towards the beach to start stage one, 
    Emerald Coast.
    
    When Sonic finds Tails, he takes him back to Station Square, and then asks 
    him why he crashed. Tails presents Sonic with a Chaos Emerald and tells him 
    that he is trying to use it to power the plane, but it still has some bugs to 
    be worked out. Tails then tells sonic to come to his workshop in the Mystic 
    Ruins, because he has something to show him.
    
    -----
    You will now be able to play with Tails.
    -----
    
    Go into the hotel, out the door to the right, up the stairs and into the door 
    at the top. Run up the next flight of stairs and enter the train to go to the 
    Mystic Ruins. Once you exit the train, go to the Sonic's right, and head up 
    the steps next to the hill. At the top, Sonic will have a confrontation with 
    Eggman. Eggman brags about having a new evil plan, and then tells Sonic to 
    hand over the emerald. Of course, Sonic refuses. Sonic then engages in a 
    battle with Eggman.
    
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Boss: Egg Hornet
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Hits to Defeat: 3
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Another easy boss battle. Just wait until the Egg Hornet digs, and then hit 
    the cockpit. As long as you make sure you always have at least one ring, 
    you'll be fine.
    
    After the battle, it looks like Eggman is defeated, but he manages to steal 
    the Chaos Emerald from Tails nonetheless. He then calls Chaos 0 and feeds him 
    the Emerald. Apparently, Chaos grows stronger every time he eats an emerald. 
    Eggman then reveals his plan to destroy Station Square and in its place build 
    "Robotnikland". He then runs off with Chaos to find more emeralds. Sonic and 
    Tails, being the heroes that they are, vow to find the Emeralds before Eggman 
    does.
    
    Go up the stairs, and then grab the crystal in front of Tails' Workshop. Go 
    down the steps, and then go straight foreword, to where there is a lake. On 
    the right, you'll find a cave. Enter, and then put the crystal on the 
    pedestal. Go into the gusts of wind to enter stage two, Windy Valley.
    
    When you beat the level, go back to the train and return to Station Square. 
    Exit the train station to the Station Area, then go to Sonic's left and 
    follow the road. You should find an open manhole. Jump down into it. Go 
    straight, and then jump onto the ledge to find the Light Speed Shoes. Charge 
    up the Light Speed Dash, then hit the button and use the Light Speed Dash to 
    follow the path of rings out of the sewers. Go back to the hotel, and then 
    enter the door you haven't accessed yet. This will lead you to the Casino 
    area. Run forward and you should find a button. Hit it to make a path of 
    rings appear, and then use the Light Speed Dash to follow the path. The 
    casino doors are now open, so enter stage three, Casinopolis.
    
    After you get the emerald, Sonic and Tails will return to Station Square. 
    Eggman, of course, chooses this time to show up. He gasses Sonic and Tails, 
    and then makes off with the Chaos Emerald. Tails decides that they need to 
    work even harder if they plan to foil Eggman.
    
    Now, a short cutscene will show a crystal appearing in an ally. You will find 
    this ally in the Casino area, almost directly across the street from the 
    steps leading to the train station. Take the crystal, and then go back to the 
    Mystic Ruins. A cinema scene will show a cliff exploding, revealing another 
    cave. Enter, and run into the gust of wind to be transported to a tunnel. Run 
    forward, and to your right, you should see a pedestal. Put the crystal on it, 
    and then go in the door and up the path to enter stage four, Ice Cap.
    
    Upon completion, go back out of the tunnel and head to the left side of the 
    lake. Knuckles will be there, and he will attack Sonic, demanding him to hand 
    over his Chaos Emeralds. Sonic will have no choice but to fight Knuckles.
    
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Mini-Boss: Knuckles
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Hits to Defeat: 3
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Once again, very simple. Wait until he stops attacking, and then hit him from 
    the back or the side. Three hits and you've won.
    
    When you beat him, Eggman will show up, and steal your two Chaos Emeralds. He 
    comments that it's like taking candy from a baby, and then he feeds the 
    emeralds to Chaos. Sonic gets mad at Knuckles for letting Eggman get the 
    emeralds, but before much can happen, Eggman sets the monster known as Chaos 
    4 on Sonic.
    
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Boss: Chaos 4
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Hits to Defeat: 5
    Difficulty: Easy/Medium
    
    Chaos 4 is tougher than the previous bosses where, but he's still pretty 
    easy. You fight him in a lake, scattered with huge lily pads. All you have to 
    do is jump around and avoid his attacks, and then hit him when he surfaces. 
    You can stand on the water, but don't stay in the same place too long or 
    you'll sink and lose rings.
    
    A huge ship flies across the sky; Eggman introduces it as the Egg Carrier, 
    and then he flies off. Sonic and tails talk about how they need to catch him, 
    but Knuckles says he can't help, as he has some unfinished business to take 
    care of. Sonic says that's fine, and that he and Tails will deal with things.
    
    -----
    If you haven't already unlocked him, you may now play as Knuckles.
    -----
    
    Now, head to Tails' Workshop, at the top of the hill where you fought the Egg 
    Hornet. Tails will go inside, and Sonic will see the ground changing into a 
    runway. Tails will then bring out an airplane and tell Sonic to hop in. They 
    fly off, and you'll engage in the first mini-game, Sky Chase Act 1.
    
    Once you fly in front of the Egg Carrier, it will shoot a large laser at you, 
    which will down the plane. Sonic will land back at the beach. Through some 
    miracle, he is unharmed, but Tails is nowhere to be seen. Sonic immediately 
    sets off in search of him.
    
    Go to the Casino Area of the town. Here, Sonic will encounter Amy. She tells 
    Sonic that she wants him to help guard the bird she is keeping. Sonic 
    refuses, but Amy says that she is going to tag along anyway.
    
    -----
    If you haven't already unlocked her, you may now play as Amy.
    -----
    
    Head back to the part of town near the main entrance to the train station, 
    then go near the capsule-like thing next to the ocean. A robot appears here. 
    Sonic wants to take it on, but Amy sees a sign for Twinkle Park that says, 
    "cute couples get in free." She of course rushes in, and Sonic has no choice 
    but to follow her into stage five, Twinkle Park.
    
    Once sonic exits the level, he ends up in a small room. Unfortunately, Amy is 
    nowhere to be seen. Sonic figures that the robot must be chasing her, so he 
    needs to get to her as quickly as possible.
    
    On the left of this room is a door that you can enter to play the Twinkle 
    Circuit mini-game. It's not necessary to play it to beat the game, but there 
    are two emblems that you can win from it. To continue on with the main game, 
    head down the path to reach another door that leads back into town.
    
    When you exit, you'll see an employee card appear in a patch of grass in the 
    middle of the road in front of the train station. Grab it, then go to the 
    garage (it's to the left of Twinkle Park). The door will open, so enter 
    either of the two elevators to go to stage six, Speed Highway.
    
    Back in town, go to the Casino Area. Sonic wonders where he can find Amy when 
    he hears her scream. He turns around to see the robot carrying her off. Go 
    into the train station, and then hop a train to the Mystic Ruins.
    
    When Sonic exits the train, he sees the robot and confronts him. Suddenly, 
    the world turns black, and Sonic looks up to see the Egg Carrier blocking out 
    the sun. It beams up the robot, taking Amy with it. Sonic then runs off in 
    pursuit of the Egg Carrier.
    
    Go in the same tunnel you used to get to the Icecap stage, but this time go 
    all the way through and out the door on the other side. Hug the cliff until 
    you see the Ancient Light upgrade. Get it, and then go to the right until you 
    see a monkey in a cage. Use the Light Speed Attack to destroy it, and then go 
    into the newly opened gateway for stage seven, Red Mountain.
    
    Note: If you want, you can go check out the Emerald Shrine, but you don't 
    have anything to do there... yet.
    
    When you destroy the capsule at the end of Red Mountain, Tails will show up 
    in an airplane. Sonic will jump on, and then you'll engage in Sky Chase Act 
    2.
    
    Tails will land (well, crash-land) the plane on the Egg Carrier, and Sonic 
    will hop out. He is amazed at the size of the ship, but Tails says there 
    isn't any time to gawk, as they need to find Amy. Sonic agrees, and they set 
    off.
    
    Head up the runway and hit the spring. Take a few more steps forward, and 
    you'll hear Eggman's voice. He will brag about the power of the Egg Carrier, 
    and then change its shape. He then says that the only way to get to him now 
    is to go through the Sky Deck. Head up the ramp and go through the door to 
    enter stage eight, Sky Deck.
    
    When Sonic emerges, he ends up in the ship's hull. Run over to the left and 
    go down the stairs, then look around for a gold half-egg thing. Jump in it to 
    rise to the ship's deck.
    
    On the deck, you will find Eggman and Amy. Eggman takes the bird Amy was 
    guarding. Turns out, it was keeping a Chaos Emerald. Eggman then calls the 
    robot E-102Y to fight Sonic.
    
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Mini-Boss: E-102Y
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Hits to Defeat: 3
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    He's a pushover. Just use the homing attack a few times, and he'll be beaten. 
    If you act quickly, he won't be able to get an attack in edgewise.
    
    Just as Sonic is about to finish off the robot, Amy runs in and tells Sonic 
    to stop. She says that the robot helped her, and is her friend. Sonic decides 
    to let the robot go, as Amy must have her reasons for not wanting him to be 
    harmed. Just then, Tails comments that the ship is losing altitude. 
    Immediately Sonic sets off to find Eggman.
    
    -----
    If you haven't already unlocked him, you may now play as E-102Y.
    -----
    
    Go forward a little, and Sonic will say that he needs to change the ship into 
    its original shape if he plans to continue. He figures than there must be a 
    switch somewhere. Enter the door to your left, and press the button inside to 
    make a path of rings appear. Use the Light Speed Dash to follow them into the 
    main control room. Jump in the chair, and when it moves forward, go behind it 
    and push the button to transform the Egg Carrier back to normal. Go through 
    the door, then turn around and go to the center of the green deck.
    
    Sonic will encounter the new version of Chaos. Big the Cat will also make an 
    appearance, and say that his pet frog in trapped inside the monster. Eggman 
    tells Sonic that resistance is futile, and then Sonic engages in battle with 
    Chaos 6.
    
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Boss: Chaos 6
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Hits to Defeat: 4
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    When Eggman drops the bomb things, hit one with a homing attack, then pick it 
    up, chuck it at Chaos to freeze him, and hit him to damage him. Repeat until 
    you beat him. Occasionally, he will turn into a plant-like creature; his is 
    invincible in this form, so run around and avoid his attacks until he changes 
    back to normal.
    
    Eggman complains that Sonic beat the creature again. Knuckles shows up at 
    this point. Eggman then flies off; Sonic jumps after him, trying to catch 
    him, but he'll miss.
    
    He lands in a new area of the Mystic Ruins, in front of a large pyramid. He 
    then sees a ball of light go into the pyramid. He figures that he is supposed 
    to follow it.
    
    -----
    If you haven't already unlocked him, you may now play as Big.
    -----
    
    Head forward and enter the temple to begin stage nine, Lost World.
    
    Once you reach the center of the ruins, the light will appear again. Sonic 
    will follow it to a wall with a large painting of a creature that looks 
    somewhat like Chaos. Sonic will then be transported back in time, to what the 
    Emerald Shrine used to be like. Run forward and Sonic will see some dead Chao 
    on the ground. An Echidna girl will also be there, lamenting the death of the 
    Choa. She says she needs to do something about it, but before Sonic can see 
    what, he is transported back to the present day. He then sees Eggman, and 
    Sonic wonders what he's doing in the Mystic Ruins.
    
    Go as far north as you can to see the docking station of the Egg Carrier. 
    Enter, and then go around the ledge to a door with six buttons around it. The 
    buttons are laid out like so:
      _                 _
     / \               / \
    | 1 |             | 6 |
     \_/               \_/
        _             _
       / \           / \
      | 2 |         | 5 |
       \_/           \_/
          _         _
         / \       / \
        | 3 |     | 4 |
         \_/       \_/
    
    Press them in this order to open the door: 3, 1, 5, 3, 2, 1, 3, 4. There may 
    be a shorter combination, but this is how I do it, and it is how YOU WILL DO 
    IT TOO!! (insert evil laugh here)
    
    Anyway, enter the door to reach the tenth and final stage, Final Egg. 
    Appropriate name, huh?
    
    When you finish Final Egg, Sonic will find Eggman in a large machine called 
    the Egg Viper. He tries to fly off, but sonic grabs hold of a nearby missile 
    and flies after him. Eggman has no choice but to fight Sonic.
    
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Boss: Egg Viper
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Hits to Defeat: 7
    Difficulty: Hard
    
    I have decided to break down this battle into several "stages" to make it 
    easier.
    
    -----
    Stage 1: 7 Health Remaining
    -----
    
    Run around to avoid Eggman's laser fire, and when he comes out to laugh at 
    you, homing-attack him.
    
    -----
    Stage 2: 6 & 5 Health Remaining
    -----
    
    Eggman attack is almost the same as stage one, but this time, after he shoots 
    smaller lasers at you, he will come up and shoot one big laser that will 
    cause a small explosion. If you keep moving you should avoid it with ease. 
    When Eggman comes out to laugh at you, homing-attack the green things on his 
    tail (use them like stepping stones) and then hit Eggman himself.
    
    -----
    Stage 3: 4 Health Remaining
    -----
    
    Now, after shooting several smaller lasers at you, Eggman will go up above 
    the platform and drive along, shooting more lasers at you. You damage him the 
    same way as you did in stage 2.
    
    -----
    Stage 4: 3 Health Remaining
    -----
    
    After he shoots a few lasers at you, Eggman will come up on the side of the 
    platform and shoot spinning disks at you. Jump on top of the disks to be 
    carried back to Eggman, then homing-attack the cockpit to damage him.
    
    -----
    Stage 5: 2 & 1 Health Remaining
    -----
    
    He won't shoot lasers at you anymore; instead, he will break a section off of 
    the platform you are on at the beginning of each attack sequence. You damage 
    him the same way that you did in stage 4. Once you deplete all his health, 
    he'll crash into the platform, so make sure you're not near him when he does 
    that. This is a pretty tough battle, so it may take you a few tries to win.
    
    Sonic stands on the train tracks as he watches Eggman, defeated, fly into the 
    distance. Tails then comes, and he and Sonic run off.
    
    ======================================
    2.2 Tails' Adventure Walkthrough [TDW]
    ======================================
    
    Tails is flying in his airplane when, suddenly, the engine fails, and he 
    crashes into a beach. When he gets his bearings, he looks up to see Sonic. 
    Sonic asked him what happened, and Tails tells him that he was trying to use 
    a Chaos Emerald to power the plane. He just needs to work on a few bugs. 
    Tails then tells Sonic to come to his workshop in the Mystic Ruins to see 
    something he has been working on.
    
    When you gain control of Tails, go through the hotel to the train station and 
    hop a train to the Mystic Ruins. Go to the right and up the stairs next to 
    the hill; at the top, Tails and Sonic will have a confrontation with Eggman. 
    Eggman brags about having a new evil plan, and then tells Tails to hand over 
    the emerald. Of course, Tails refuses. Tails then engages in a battle with 
    Eggman.
    
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Boss: Egg Hornet
    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
    Hits to Defeat: 3
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Just wait until the Egg Hornet digs, and then hit the cockpit. As long as you 
    make sure you always have at least one ring, you'll be fine.
    
    After the battle, it looks like Eggman is defeated, but he manages to steal 
    the Chaos Emerald from Tails nonetheless. He then calls Chaos 0 and feeds him 
    the Emerald. Apparently, Chaos grows stronger every time he eats an emerald. 
    Eggman then reveals his plan to destroy Station Square and in its place build 
    "Robotnikland". He then runs off with Chaos to find more emeralds. Sonic and 
    Tails, being the heroes that they are, vow to find the Emeralds before Eggman 
    does.
    
    Go up the stairs, and then grab the crystal in front of Tails' Workshop. Go 
    down the steps, and then go straight foreword, to where there is a lake. On 
    the right, you'll find a cave. Enter, and then put the crystal on the 
    pedestal. Go into the gusts of wind to enter stage one, Windy Valley.
    
    Once you complete it, head back to Station Square. Go to the Casino Area, and 
    run down to the end of the street. Fly up and press the button on front of 
    the casino; this will open the door to the second stage, Casinopolis.
    
    After you get the emerald, Sonic and Tails will return to Station Square. 
    Eggman, of course, chooses this time to show up. He gasses Sonic and Tails, 
    and then makes off with the Chaos Emerald. Tails decides that they need to 
    work even harder if they plan to foil Eggman.
    
    Now, a short cutscene will show a crystal appearing in an ally. You will find 
    this ally in the Casino area, almost directly across the street from the 
    steps leading to the train station. Take the crystal, and then go back to the 
    Mystic Ruins. A cinema scene will show a cliff exploding, revealing another 
    cave. Enter, and run into the gust of wind to be transported to a tunnel. Run 
    forward, and to your right, you should see a pedestal. Put the crystal on it, 
    and then go in the door and up the path to enter stage three, Ice Cap.
    
    Upon completion, go back out of the tunnel and head to the left side of the 
    lake. Knuckles will be there, and he will attack Tails, demanding him to hand 
    over his Chaos Emeralds. Tails will have no choice but to fight Knuckles.

    Like the Egg Hornet, very simple. Wait until he stops attacking, and then hit 
    him from the back or the side. Three hits and you've won.
    
    When you beat him, Eggman will show up, and steal your two Chaos Emeralds. He 
    comments that it's like taking candy from a baby, and then he feeds the 
    emeralds to Chaos. Sonic gets mad at Knuckles for letting Eggman get the 
    emeralds, but before much can happen, Eggman sets the monster known as Chaos 
    4 on Tails.

    Difficulty: Easy/Medium
    
    Chaos 4 is tougher than the previous bosses where, but he's still pretty 
    easy. You fight him in a lake, scattered with huge lily pads. All you have to 
    do is jump around and avoid his attacks, and then hit him when he surfaces. 
    You can stand on the water, but don't stay in the same place too long or 
    you'll sink and lose rings.
    
    A huge ship flies across the sky; Eggman introduces it as the Egg Carrier, 
    and then he flies off. Sonic and tails talk about how they need to catch him, 
    but Knuckles says he can't help, as he has some unfinished business to take 
    care of. Sonic says that's fine, and that he and Tails will deal with things.

    If you haven't already unlocked him, you may now play as Knuckles.

    Head back to Tails' Workshop, at the top of the hill where you fought the Egg 
    Hornet. Tails tells Sonic to wait outside, and then he enters and brings out 
    an airplane. Sonic hops in and they fly off. You then get to play Sky Chase 
    Act 1.
    
    Once you fly in front of the Egg Carrier, it will shoot a large laser at you, 
    which will down the plane. Tails gets knocked out, and he has a dream of 
    himself following Sonic through a jungle. Tails wakes up lying on the ground 
    at the Mystic ruins. He remembers how much he owes to Sonic, then wonders 
    what happened to him. He then decides to find another Chaos Emerald so that 
    he can fully power his airplane.
    
    Now, go into the mine car by the lake. Jump off the ledge and keep a left 
    path. Soon, Tails will see a chaos emerald lying on the ground. However, a 
    frog will take it and hop into a cave. Follow it, then fly up onto the ledge 
    and jump on the button. Go back down and continue down the cave to the Sand 
    Hill Sub Game.
    
    When you get the frog, a light will appear and transport Tails to a temple 
    with a bunch of echidnas. Go up the stairs to the left and get the Rhythm 
    Badge upgrade. Then go to the front of the temple and talk to the Echidna 
    named Tikal. She tells Tails a poem that her grandmother taught her, but she 
    doesn't know quite what it means. They'll talk for a minute about Chaos 
    Emeralds, and then Tails will be transported back to the Mystic Ruins. Big 
    will be here, and he'll scare off the frog. He will chase after him, leaving 
    Tails alone with his Chaos Emerald. Tails decides that it's time to power up 
    his airplane.

    If you haven't already unlocked him, you may now play as Big.

    Go back to Tails' Workshop. Tails will finish the plane, and then fly off in 
    search of Sonic. He will find him at Red Mountain, near the Egg Carrier. 
    Sonic hops in the plane and they fly off to pursue the Egg Carrier. You'll 
    then play Sky Chase Act 2.
    
    Tails will land (well, crash-land) the plane on the Egg Carrier, and Sonic 
    and Tails will hop out. Sonic is amazed at the size of the ship, but Tails 
    says there isn't any time to gawk, as they need to find Amy. Sonic agrees, 
    and they set off.
    
    Head up the runway and hit the spring. Take a few more steps forward, and 
    you'll hear Eggman's voice. He will brag about the power of the Egg Carrier, 
    and then change its shape. He then says that the only way to get to him now 
    is to go through the Sky Deck. Head up the ramp and go through the door to 
    enter stage five, Sky Deck.
    
    When Tails emerges, he ends up in the ship's hull. Run over to the left and 
    go down the stairs, then look around for a gold half-egg thing (a lift pod). 
    Jump in it to rise to the ship's deck.
    
    On the deck, you will find Eggman and Amy. Eggman takes the bird Amy was 
    guarding. Turns out, it was keeping a Chaos Emerald. Eggman then calls the 
    robot E-102Y to fight Tails.

    Run at him and attack quickly. If you attack him constantly, he won't be able 
    to get an attack in edgewise.
    
    Just as Tails is about to finish off the robot, Amy runs in and tells Tails 
    to stop. She says that the robot helped her, and is her friend. Tails decides 
    to let the robot go, as Amy must have her reasons for not wanting him to be 
    harmed. Just then, Tails notices that the ship is losing altitude. 
    Immediately Sonic sets off to find Eggman, and Tails takes Amy and flies off 
    the Egg Carrier before it explodes.

    If you haven't already unlocked them, you may now play as E-102Y and Amy.
    -----
    
    Back at Station Square, Tails sees Eggman flying around. He complains about 
    how Sonic defeated him yet again, but then remembers that he has a missile 
    ready to destroy Station Square. He launches it, but it turns out to be a 
    dud. He sets off to retrieve the missile and see what was wrong. Tails, 
    knowing that the fate of Station Square depends on him, sets off to beat 
    Eggman to the missile, which leads him to stage five, Speed Highway.
    
    When Tails reaches the missile, Eggman, in his wrath, brings out a huge piece 
    of machinery called the Egg Walker. He tells Tails to leave before he gets 
    crushed. Tails refuses and engages in battle with Eggman.

    Run under the Egg Walker and stay there. When one of the feet stomps down, 
    jump up to avoid the sonic waves it radiates, and then hit the foot with the 
    tail attack. This will cause the Egg Walker to fall over, and you can hit the 
    cockpit. As the battle progresses, you'll have to hit more than one foot to 
    make the Egg Walker fall.
    
    Tails pats himself on the back for defeating Eggman by himself. He then flies 
    off to the Mystic Ruins. There, he finds Sonic, and they run off together.

    2.3 Knuckles' Adventure Walkthrough [KDW]
    =========================================
    
    Knuckles is at the Emerald Shrine, contemplating his job to protect the 
    Master Emerald, when Chaos shows up. It breaks up the Master Emerald and then 
    disappears before Knuckles can do much to stop him. The floating island then 
    begins to fall, and without the power of the Master Emerald, it can't stay 
    floating anymore. Knuckles heads to Station Square in search of the pieces of 
    the Master Emerald.
    
    Go around the corner to Knuckles' left and continue until you see a blocked-
    off area. Destroy the blockade, and then enter the door to reach stage one, 
    Speed Highway.
    
    Once you beat it, go to the casino area. On a wall, there will be a line of 
    rings. Follow the line up, then jump and glide into the button above the door 
    leading into the casino. Enter the door, and you'll be at stage two, 
    Casinopolis.
    
    A ball of light appears and transports Knuckles to a temple. He looks around, 
    and though he hasn't been there before, he notes that something about it is 
    familiar. Now, head to the other side of the temple.
    
    The female echidna (Tikal) is trying to convince her father not to go to war; 
    however, he is determined to do it. Knuckles is then transported back to 
    Station Square in the present day.
    
    Go into the hotel, and you'll see Eggman going up an elevator. Knuckles sees 
    that he is holding what seems to be a part of the Master Emerald. Head into 
    the elevator after Eggman.
    
    Knuckles confronts Eggman and demands that he hand over the piece of the 
    Master Emerald. However, Eggman says that it is not a piece of the Master 
    Emerald, it is a Chaos Emerald. Eggman summons Chaos and feeds him the 
    emerald, telling Knuckles he will use him as a "guinea pig" to test its 
    power. He then tells Chaos to fight Knuckles.

    Not particularly tough. When he is in ball form, avoid him, as he is 
    invulnerable. When he tries to punch you, hit him from behind to damage him.
    
    Eggman says that Knuckles has yet to see the true power of Chaos. He then 
    tells Knuckles that Sonic is also after the pieces of the Master Emerald, and 
    then he leaves. Wondering what he meant, Knuckles heads to the Mystic Ruins 
    to find Sonic and see why he is after the Master Emerald as well.
    
    Go to the cliff behind Tails' Workshop, and enter the cave you will find 
    there. Get the Shovel Claws upgrade, and then go into the room right next to 
    you. Dig under the floating Eggman hologram to get a switch, then carry it to 
    the caged monkey, and place it under him to make them explode. Grab another 
    switch, and then go to the cave near the train station. Go all the way 
    through, and then look on the right for another caged monkey. Place the 
    switch under him to make him explode, and then go through the gate to get to 
    stage three, Red Mountain.
    
    When you complete it, go back to the left side of the lake. Knuckles sees 
    Sonic holding what looks like a piece of the Master Emerald. Knuckles jumps 
    to conclusions and attacks Sonic.

    Sonic had. Eggman comments that it's like taking candy from a baby, and then 
    he feeds the emeralds to Chaos. Sonic gets mad at Knuckles for letting Eggman

    do is jump around and avoid his attacks, and then hit him when he surfaces. 
    You can stand on the water, but don't stay in the same place too long or 
    you'll sink and lose rings.
    
    A huge ship flies across the sky; Eggman introduces it as the Egg Carrier, 
    and then he flies off. Sonic and tails talk about how they need to catch him, 
    but Knuckles says he can't help, as he has some unfinished business to take 
    care of. Sonic says that's fine, and that he and Tails will deal with things.
    
    Now, hop on the mine car next to the lake. Make your way to Big's House 
    (check the map if you don't know where it is). Climb the tree next to the 
    house and glide to the ledge to get the Gold Claws. Go back to the entrance 
    ledge, and there will be a gold statue. Pick it up, carry it to the temple, 
    and place it on the pedestal you will find at the back of the temple. The 
    silver statue is in the easternmost cave. Dig where there is a floating 
    symbol. Once both statues are in place, stage four, Lost World, will open.
    
    When Knuckles finds all the Emeralds, the ball of light appears and he is 
    teleported again. Go up the steps to see Tikal. She is telling the Master 
    Emerald that the creatures must leave, as her father is going to attack the 
    place soon. However, the spirits tell her that they can't leave. Tikal 
    decides to try talking to her father again. Knuckles is then transported back 
    to the emerald shrine in the present day. Scratching his head about what is 
    going on, he restores the pieces back to the Master Emerald. It is almost 
    repaired, but there is still a small chunk missing. Knuckles then sees the 
    Egg Carrier; he figures that is where the remaining pieces must be. Seeing E-
    102Y, he decides to follow him.
    
    -----
    If you haven't already unlocked him, you may now play as E-102Y.

    Go back to the rain forest. Go to the temple, then north and to the right, to 
    Eggman's base. Knuckles manages to enter the Egg Carries just before it takes 
    off. On board, he senses the Master Emerald pieces; they are close by! Go 
    forward a bit to see the Egg Carrier transform, then go back and enter the 
    door. Jump in the drained pool and will Knuckles comment that he senses the 
    Master Emerald pieces. The door here leads to stage five, Sky Deck.
    
    Just as Knuckles is about to head back to restore the Master Emerald, he is 
    transported yet again. Run forward to find Tikal lying on the ground. 
    Apparently, her father and his solders destroyed the shrine. Knuckles in then 
    transported back to the Egg Carrier. Head out onto the Egg Carrier's main 
    deck. Knuckles will see a flash of light - head that way. Knuckles finds 
    Sonic confronting Eggman. Eggman flies off, and Sonic runs after him. 
    Knuckles is just about to head back to the Emerald Shrine when Chaos shows up 
    and attacks him.

    This is basically the same as when you did it with Sonic. Hit the spiked 
    things, pick them up and throw them at Chaos to make him freeze, then jump at 
    him to damage him. When the deck opens up, avoid the open part - it will 
    cause damage to you.
    
    Knuckles thinks that he has destroyed the beast, and heads back to the 
    Emerald Shrine. He puts the pieces back onto the Master Emerald, finally 
    restoring it to its former glory. The Master Emerald's power causes the 
    island to rise again. Knuckles lets himself take a well deserved rest, and 
    all is well... for now.

    2.4 Amy's Adventure Walkthrough [MDW]
    =====================================
    
    Amy is doing some grocery shopping at Station Square and daydreaming about 
    her hero, Sonic, when the Egg Carrier eclipses the sun. A small bird then 
    runs into Amy, and one of Eggman's robots shows up. Grabbing the bird, Amy 
    runs off with the robot in pursuit. She manages to hide in a burger shop. She 
    figures that the bird was one off Eggman's captives and managed to get away. 
    She takes in upon herself to protect the bird.
    
    Head to the Casino area to find Sonic. Amy tells him that she wants him to 
    help guard the bird. Sonic refuses, but Amy says that she is going to tag 
    along anyway. Sonic then runs off and disappears before Amy can catch him.
    
    Head back to the part of town near the main entrance to the train station, 
    then go near the capsule-like thing next to the ocean. The robot appears 
    again here. Sonic wants to take it on, but Amy sees a sign for Twinkle Park 
    that says, "cute couples get in free." She of course rushes in, and Sonic has 
    no choice but to follow her into what is stage one, Twinkle Park.
    
    On the left of this room is a door that you can enter to play the Twinkle 
    Circuit mini-game. It's not necessary to play it to beat the game, but there 
    are two emblems that you can win from it. To continue on with the main game, 
    head down the path to reach another door that leads back into town.
    
    Amy exits Twinkle Parks, thinking that she has lost the robot. She also 
    notices that Sonic too is missing. The robot then shows up and kidnaps Amy. 
    She tries to yell to Sonic for help, but he is too late. Amy gets locked in a 
    cell in the Egg Carrier. Soon, E-102Y comes along. He orders Amy to give him 
    the bird. She of course refuses. She then asks the robot why he wants the 
    bird, but he doesn't know. Amy tells the robot that she feels sorry for him. 
    E-102Y cannot understand why she has feelings for him, as she does not know 
    him. E-102Y then opens the cage and tells Amy to escape.
    
    Exit the room, and you'll play the Hedgehog Hammer game. If you beat it, 
    you'll get the Warrior Feather upgrade. Go through the other door and hit the 
    button in front of the middle door to open it, and then enter stage two, Hot 
    Shelter.
    
    The infamous ball of light appears and transports Amy to the Echidna temple. 
    Enter the door behind you, then run up the path to the shrine. Tikal is 
    talking to the Chaos, and telling then not to be afraid of her. Suddenly, 
    what looks like Chaos appears in the water, and Amy is transported back to 
    the Egg Carrier. She wonders if it was a dream, and then decides that she 
    needs to get off of the Egg Carrier as soon as possible. Go out the door to 
    find the rest of the gang.
    
    Eggman ambushes Amy, and before Sonic and Tails can stop him, he takes the 
    bird. Turns out, it was keeping a Chaos Emerald. Eggman then calls the robot 
    E-102Y to fight Sonic and Tails. Sonic is about to destroy E-102Y when Amy 
    steps in. She tells Sonic not to hurt the robot, as he let her go. Sonic 
    decides to do as Amy wishes. Just then, Tails notices that the ship is losing 
    altitude. Immediately Sonic sets off to find Eggman. Amy asks the robot to 
    come with them, but before he can give a straight answer, Tails grabs Amy and 
    flies off.
    
    Back in Station Square, Amy wonders what Sonic doing. She decides that he is 
    always rescuing her, and that she needs to be more independent. She then 
    notices a pendent on the bird's neck with a picture of its family inside. She 
    decides to find the bird's family, and then the best place to look would be 
    Eggman's base at the Mystic Ruins.
    
    Get into the mine car next to the lake, and make your way to the northwest, 
    where the tunnel that leads to Eggman's base is. Enter, and then go around 
    the ledge to a door with six buttons around it. The buttons are laid out like 
    so:
      _                 _
     / \               / \
    | 1 |             | 6 |

       \_/           \_/
          _         _
         / \       / \
        | 3 |     | 4 |
         \_/       \_/
    
    Press them in this order to open the door: 3, 1, 5, 3, 2, 1, 3, 4. There may 
    be a shorter combination, but this is how I do it, and it is how YOU WILL DO 
    IT TOO!! (insert evil laugh here)
    
    Anyway, enter the door to reach the third stage, Final Egg.
    
    Amy exits Final Egg, and tells the bird that she saw so sign of its family. 
    Then, remembering that the bird escaped from the Egg Carrier, she decides 
    that maybe its family is still there. Go back to the Mystic Ruins train 
    station, and then go down the ladder to the raft. Jump on it to go to the 
    downed Egg Carrier.
    
    The bird flies off and returns with two other birds, which appear to be its 
    family. Just then, Zero appears and shoots the birds down. Amy becomes angry, 
    and unleashes her hammer-powered fury on Zero.

    Run around and try to prevent him from locking on to you. When he pounds on 
    the ground, jump over the shock wave he sends out. To damage him, hit him 
    with the hammer to knock him into the electric fence; when his top pops open, 
    hit him. Later in the fight, he will extend his arms and swing them around, 
    forcing you to play jump rope with him.
    
    Zero explodes, sending robot pieces everywhere. Amy walks over to the bird, 
    who appears to be unconscious. He wakes up and flies off, faltering a bit, 
    but able to stay airborne. His family joins him, and they fly off into the 
    sunset. Amy heads back to shore, patting herself on the back for a job well 
    done.

    2.5 Big's Adventure Walkthrough
    ===============================
    
    Big is sleeping at his house in the Mystic Ruins with his pet frog, Froggy. 
    There is a noise, and Froggy jumps off to see what is up. Chaos appears and 
    engulfs Froggy. When big wakes up, he sees that Froggy has a tail, and he 
    wonders what's going on. Froggy jumps back into Big's house and swallows his 
    "lucky charm", which is a Chaos Emerald. The frog then jumps away. Big begins 
    looking for him, which leads the cat to Station Square.
    
    Go around the corner and down the street, and you'll see Froggy jump under a 
    car. Stand next to the car, press B to pick it up, and jump into the sewer. 
    Head down the path behind you and enter the door. Continue down the hallway 
    and soon you'll get to stage one, Twinkle Park.
    
    On the left of this room is a door that you can enter to play the Twinkle 
    Circuit mini-game. It's not necessary to play it to beat the game, but there 
    are two emblems that you can win from it. To continue on with the main game, 
    head down the path to reach another door that leads back into town.
    
    A short cutscene will depict a crystal appearing behind the water behind the 
    elevator that leads to Twinkle Park. Grab it and get in a train to head for 
    the Mystic Ruins. Go to the cave near the train station with the rocks lying 
    around it, and enter. Jump into the gusts of wind to get to another tunnel, 
    and continue until you see a pedestal on the right. Put the crystal on the 
    pedestal, enter the door, and get the Lifebelt upgrade. Continue on past the 
    pond and climb the ladder to stage two, Icecap.
    
    Exit the cave and Big will see Tails holding Froggy. Big runs at them, glad 
    that he has found his pet; however, Tails drops Froggy, who runs away. Big 
    groans about it for a moment and then continues on his search.
    
    Hop a train back to Station Square. When you exit the train station, Big sees 
    Froggy jump into the hotel. Go through the hotel to the pool, and then go to 
    the beach to start stage three, Emerald Coast.
    
    Big has just reclaimed Froggy when E-102Y shows up and steals him. Big chases 
    after them, and somehow manages to hide inside the Egg Carrier before it 
    takes off. After observing the inside of the ship, he continues on his quest. 
    Go to the three doors, and jump on the switch in front of the middle door. 
    Enter it to get to stage four, Hot Shelter.
    
    After Big finally finds Froggy, the ball of light appears and transports Big 
    to the Emerald Shrine. Walk to the shrine, and Big sees Tikal, observing the 
    shrine for the first time. She is amazed at the sight of the Master Emerald. 
    Big is then transported back to the Egg Carrier. Big decides that he and 
    Froggy need to get off the ship as soon as they can.
    
    Jump on the yellow and green panel on the floor (near the computer screen), 
    then take the monorail up. Go to the large green platform on the top of the 
    Egg Carrier. Eggman comes and extracts a Chaos Emerald from the frog, then 
    feed it to Chaos along with the one that he already has. He then tells Big 
    that the frog is possessed by its tail, and Froggy jumps into Chaos. Sonic 
    then shows up, and tells Big that he will try to help him get his friend 
    back.

    over to Tails' airplane, and Big will decide that maybe they can "borrow" it 
    to get off the ship. They manage to fly off of the Egg Carrier before it 
    explodes.
    
    Back at the Mystic Ruins, Big and Froggy, together again at last, begin to 
    play with each other. A job well done, eh?

    When E-1 wakes up, the first thing he sees is Eggman. Eggman tells the robot 
    that he is the second in a series of robots, and that he is codenamed 
    "Gamma". Eggman then tells him that he was made to serve him and only him.
    
    Go around the corner and speak with Eggman. He says that the shooting range 
    is through the nearby door, and that his fellow robot E-101 "Beta" is there 
    practicing. Eggman tells the robot to enter, saying that though he isn't as 
    advanced as the other robot, he'll do fine. E-102Y enters what is stage one, 
    Final Egg.
    
    Now, go down the nearby steps and talk to Eggman. He congratulates him on 
    completing the level, and then tells him that he can only accept the best of 
    the best for his evil plan, and that he is going to pit E-102Y and E-101B 
    against each other. Whoever wins will get to serve on his ship. He says that 
    he places his bets on E-101B, but E-102Y might be able to prove him wrong.

    Basically, just keep targeting and shooting him. If you do this, he won't be 
    able to retaliate.
    
    Eggman congratulates E-102Y for the fight, and gives him permission to serve 
    on the Egg Carrier. He then decides to let E-101B come along as well, and 
    they could use a spare set of parts.
    
    On the Egg Carrier, Eggman gives E-102Y and three other robots a briefing. He 
    says that they need to find a tailed frog, as he needs him for his plans. The 
    robots run off, and E-102Y goes to Station Square.
    
    Head through the hotel to the pool. Blast the three targets on the gate to 
    destroy it, and then enter stage two, Emerald Coast.
    
    When E-102Y gets the frog, the good ol' ball of light appears and transports 
    him to the Emerald Shrine. He cannot find data on the location, and says that 
    it presents a problem. Walk forward, and the robot will see a whole bunch of 
    Chao singing. Tikal comes along, and tells E-120Y to get away. She quickly 
    apologizes, saying that he must not be "one of them". She says that the Chao 
    are very gentle creatures, and that they rely very much on the shrine. She 
    then says that her father is planning on attacking the shrine. E-102Y is then 
    transported back to the Egg Carrier.
    
    Eggman is yelling at the rest of the robots, as they have all found the wrong 
    frogs. However, as soon as he sees E-102Y his mood changes, as he has found 
    the correct frog. Eggman gets rid of the other robots, and tells E-102Y that 
    he has a new assignment, an easy one. He tells him to go to the prison cells 
    and get a bird from a prisoner. E-102Y, however, goes through the wrong door 
    and sees E-101B getting rebuilt. Quickly realizing his mistake, E-102Y exits 
    the room.
    
    Head through the right-hand door in the row of three, and through the other 
    door in the next room. There, E-102Y finds Amy in one of the cells. He orders 
    her to give him the bird. She of course refuses. She then asks the robot why 
    he wants the bird, but he doesn't know. Amy tells the robot that she feels 
    sorry for him. E-102Y cannot understand why she has feelings for him, as she 
    does not know him. E-102Y then opens the cage and tells Amy to escape.
    
    Now, return to the main room. Eggman calls E-102Y, telling him to get the Jet 
    Booster from the ammunition room and then to continue up to the main deck. Go 
    to the far end of the hull, up the set of stairs to the right, and into the 
    first door you find. Jump down and get the Jet Booster upgrade. Use the 
    spring to return to the main room. Eggman calls E-102Y again and tells him to 
    report to the rear of the ship. Jump on the lift pod to reach Eggman, Sonic, 
    Tails and Amy. Eggman tells E-102Y to kill Sonic and the others.

    Run around him and target him whenever you can. This is not a hard fight. 
    Just be warned: when he is flashing, he cannot be harmed.
    
    E-102Y is about to shoot sonic when Amy steps in the way. She tells him not 
    to harm Sonic. He complies. Just then, Tails notices that the ship is losing 
    altitude. Amy asks the robot to come with them, but before he can give a 
    straight answer, Tails grabs Amy and flies away. E-102Y watches, and then 
    flies off after them. He ends up at the Mystic Ruins, and starts thinking 
    about his past. He decides to ditch Eggman and help Sonic.
    
    Go down the ladder under the train station, and jump on the raft to go to the 
    Egg Carrier. Go to the rear of the ship (to where you fought Sonic), and jump 
    on the lift pad. Enter the door across from the room where you got the Jet 
    Booster (this is the Reservoir). Jump down and grab the Gun Upgrade, and then 
    return to the Mystic Ruins. Go to Tail's Workshop (you should know where it 
    is by now) and get the crystal, then go to cave on the right side of the 
    lake, put the crystal on the pedestal, and enter stage three, Windy Valley.
    
    A short cutscene will show a cave being blow open near the train station. 
    Enter it, and go all the way through. Once you get to a grassy area, look for 
    a caged monkey on the right. Blast him, and enter the gate for stage four, 
    Red Mountain.
    
    E-102Y congratulates himself on destroying the two robots, but knows that he 
    still must deal with E-105 Zeta and E-101 Beta. He figures that they might be 
    aboard the Egg Carrier.
    
    Go back to the Egg Carrier via the raft under the train station. E-102Y scans 
    the craft, and locates E-105 in the Hot Shelter. Now, find the lift pod, and 
    take it down to the main room. Go to the row of three doors, and enter the 
    one in the middle to get to stage five, Hot Shelter.
    
    Return to the deck, E-102Y will see E-101 flying around. Go to the green 
    platform to find him. It's time for the showdown!

    If he shoots missiles at you, target them and blast them to smithereens. Wait 
    until he charges, then quickly target and shoot him in the back.
    
    Although beaten, E-105 manages to get one last shot off on E-102Y. He then 
    explodes, revealing a bird hidden inside him. E-102 blacks out and explodes 
    also, and another bird flies out of him. The two birds meet up and fly off 
    together.

    2.7 Super Sonic's Adventure Walkthrough [SNW]
    =============================================
    
    Eggman is flying around in the Mystic Ruins, complaining about Sonic beating 
    him again. Chaos appears nearby...
    
    Angel Island falls back to the ground... something is wrong. Knuckles wonders 
    what, and decides to ask Sonic for help. He then sees Eggman lying on the 
    ground, and runs up to him to see what is wrong. Chaos appears nearby...
    
    Sonic is lounging around near the lake when Tails runs up to him and tells 
    him Angel Island is falling. Sonic immediately sets off to see what is wrong.
    
    When you gain control of Sonic, go to the cave near the train station (the 
    one that was formed by an explosion) and go through in to the Emerald Shrine. 
    Go to the back of the Shrine to see Eggman and Knuckles both lying on the 
    ground. Sonic asks them what happened, and Knuckles tells him that Choas is 
    still alive, and has six of the seven Chaos Emeralds. Eggman gets back in his 
    vehicle and flies off, saying something about Chaos "not getting away with 
    this". Knuckles and Sonic talk about how they can't let Chaos get the seventh 
    emerald, and then the ball of light appears once again and transports Sonic 
    to the shrine. 
    
    Go to the enflamed Shrine. Tikal is there, and is trying to prevent her 
    father from attacking the shrine. He says that he has to get the emerald for 
    the good of the people and sends his guards at the shrine, knocking Tikal and 
    some Chao over in the process. Choas appears in front of the Master Emerald 
    and starts to glow...
    
    Run forward to where Tikal is lying on the ground. Sonic asks her if she is 
    all right; she says that she thinks so. She gets up and runs to the Master 
    Emerald. Follow her. She starts reciting everything she knows about the 
    emerald, and it starts to glow...
    
    Tails manages to wake Sonic up. He tells him that Knuckles already left to 
    find Choas, and that they need to find the Tornado 2, as that is where the 
    last Chaos Emerald should be. Now, go back to the lake, and hop in the mine 
    car. 
    
    Just as Tails and sonic reach the plane, Eggman beams up the last Chaos 
    Emerald. You are then treated to a cinema of Choas destroying Station Square, 
    much like the game's intro movie.
    
    Sonic reaches Station Square and wonders at the power of chaos. Eggman then 
    appears in the Egg Carrier 2 and attempts to destroy Choas, but before he can 
    do anything, Chaos shoots him down. The ball of light appears, and transforms 
    into Tikal. Apparently, she sealed chaos in the Master Emerald after his last 
    evil rampage. She says that they must seal him in it again before he can 
    destroy the word.
    
    Tails, Knuckles and Amy come along with all of the chaos emerald. Tikal says 
    that chaos only used the negative power of the emeralds, and that Sonic can 
    still use the positive energy to transform into Super Sonic. He does, and 
    goes to fight Choas. Wipe your palms and crack your knuckles - it's time to 
    duke it out.

    Gain as much speed as you can, and ram into his base. If you've got enough 
    speed, you'll damage him. You'll know when you're going fast enough because 
    the aura surrounding Sonic will turn blue. After three hits, Choas will 
    become more powerful. The one thing to remember is that you start with fifty 
    rings, and one is drained every second. So, if you don't collect any rings, 
    you've got fifty seconds. For every ring you collect, you get another second. 
    Good luck, you'll need it!
    
    Sonic returns, victorious, to the rest of his friends. They see that, 
    somehow, Sonic managed to neutralize it, so it's nice again. Tikal comments 
    on how all is well and good, thanks Sonic, and floats off with Chaos.  Sonic 
    then runs off, in search of his next adventure.

    Mission C: Complete the Stage
    -----
    
    Simple. All that you have to do is get to the end of the stage, and you've 
    won. See the Stage Walkthroughs for info on how to beat these.
    
    -----
    Mission B: Collect 50 Rings and Destroy the Capsule
    -----
    
    OK... these are a bit harder. You have to reach the end with 50 rings still 
    intact. The only advice I can give you is to go slowly, and try to avoid 
    enemies. Just try not to get discouraged if it takes you awhile to win.
    
    -----
    Mission A: Destroy the Capsule within the Time Limit
    -----
    
    Most of these are pretty hard. One way to make up a few seconds is to Spin 
    Dash whenever you get the chance. Also, don't bother with enemies; just run 
    right past them. Some stages have shortcuts, so check the Stage Walkthroughs 
    to see if there are any.

    (Start to Checkpoint 1)
    
    Run up the beach, destroying robots as you go, until you get to a ramp. Go up 
    it, destroy the monkey, and hit the spring to cross the gap. Continue until 
    you get to a loop-de-loop. Take it, and then run down the beach to the first 
    checkpoint.
    
    (Checkpoint 1 to Checkpoint 2)
    
    Continue down the beach, grabbing the rings as you go, then hit the boost pad 
    to get to checkpoint 2.
    
    (Checkpoint 2 to Checkpoint 3)
    
    Step on the boost pad, and run down the path until you reach a grassy area. 
    Time it so you avoid the spikes as you continue, and keep going down the path 
    to the loop-de-loop. Checkpoint 3 is straight ahead.
    
    (Checkpoint 3 to Checkpoint 4)
    
    Go down the walk until you hit a boost pad. A series of boost pads will lead 
    you to checkpoint 4.
    
    (Checkpoint 4 to Checkpoint 5)
    
    Avoid the spike thing, then run up the hill and touch the spring. Continue up 
    the path of springs, and then run around the mountain to the broken bridge. 
    Jump over the gaps, and then continue on to a new area. Checkpoint 5 is right 
    inside.
    
    (Checkpoint 5 to Checkpoint 6)
    
    Run down the path until you get to a pool of water. Cross it using the 
    platforms, and then continue down the path, avoiding the spikes, to 
    checkpoint 6.
    
    (Checkpoint 6 to Checkpoint 7)
    
    Continue to another loop-de-loop. Once you pass it, hit the boost pad to run 
    up the wall, and then continue, destroying monkeys as you go, until you get 
    to checkpoint 7.
    
    (Checkpoint 7 to End)
    
    Keep going until you get to a panel that says "1" on it. Step on it, then 
    press A to jump to panel 2, then again to panel 3, then panels 4 and 5, then 
    jump one more time to get back on solid ground. Keep going (avoid the spikes) 
    until you get to a beach. Run down the beach to reach Tails.
    
    -----
    Shortcuts
    -----
    
    There is one shortcut in this stage, and it's between checkpoint 5 and the 
    pool of water. If you run up the wall on the left side of the path, you 
    should see the hole that is the shortcut.

    (Start to Checkpoint 1)
    
    Run straight forward, grabbing rings and destroying enemies as you go, until 
    you reach a cliff. Stand in front of it and let the gusts of wind carry you 
    up to the ledge. The first checkpoint is right ahead.
    
    (Checkpoint 1 to Checkpoint 2)
    
    Jump up the cliffs, then hit the spring and float over to checkpoint 2.
    
    (Checkpoint 2 to Checkpoint 3)
    
    Go straight ahead, then run off the cliff and continue to hold up on the 
    control stick. The wind will carry you to the next platform. Use the 
    trampoline to bounce up to another floating platform, and then hop across to 
    where the broken bridge is hanging. Keep running onto the next bridge, which 
    will break. Run next to the cliff, and let yourself get sucked into the 
    tornado.
    
    Run around the platform, hit the spring, and get onto the next platform. Run 
    to the "1" pad, then jump to pads 2, 3, 4 and 5. Jump one more time, and 
    you'll be right in front of checkpoint #3.
    
    (Checkpoint 3 to Checkpoint 4)
    
    Bounce on the trampoline to the bridge, then run across it and hit the 
    spring. Float over to the platform, and then hit the spring to exit the 
    tornado.
    
    Continue down the path, and when your way is blocked by a bunch of bricks, 
    use the Spin Dash to break through them. Go all the way down the metal path, 
    and hit the springs to be propelled into a broken down building. Run out and 
    grab the rocket to get to the fourth checkpoint.
    
    (Checkpoint 4 to Checkpoint 5)
    
    Hit the boost pad and run all the way down the metal path. At the end, you'll 
    run off completely-just keep holding up on the control stick to get to the 
    next platform. Hit the spring, and then go on one of the paths on the right. 
    Go all the way around until you get to the top of the mountain. Stand in the 
    center and use the gust to hit the spring. It will propel you to checkpoint 
    5.
    
    (Checkpoint 5 to End)
    
    Go down the metal path, and just keep running. You run down a mountain, and 
    through more gusts of wind - just keep going. You'll soon reach the Chaos 
    Emerald.

    Stage Walkthrough
    -----
    
    This stage is different then the other stages. The point of it is to get 400 
    rings and deposit them in the vault. This will allow you to reach the Chaos 
    Emerald.
    
    There are two pinball tables here; one in a room to your left (when you 
    enter) and one in a room to your right. Playing these will give you more 
    rings. If you lose all three balls with less then 100 rings in your 
    inventory, you will get dumped in the basement. This is not bad, as there are 
    tons of rings down there. In fact, those who are not, ahem, pinball wizards 
    (like me) can purposely lose without 100 rings just to get dumped down there. 
    Here is a walkthrough for the basement (although it's so straightforward, I 
    don't think you'll need it):
    
    Run up the first ramp, destroying the robots and getting the rings as you go, 
    and then get the bomb capsule. Go up the second ramp, get all the rings, and 
    then go in the doorway, avoiding the spiked ball. In the next room, get under 
    a path of rings, and let the wind carry you up. At the top, you'll be sucked 
    into a tunnel. Proceed, getting the ring capsules as you go, to another fan 
    room. Same as before - get under a path of rings, get blown up, and then 
    sucked into the tunnel. This tunnel has several spiked balls in it, so be 
    careful. In the next room, grab all the rings on solid ground, then charge up 
    the Light Speed Dash. Run to the edge of the water, jump, then at the apex of 
    your jump, let go of the B button. You'll get carried to the other side of 
    the water. Climb up the ladder, and you'll be back in the lobby.
    
    Once you deposit 400 rings (you don't have to deposit them all at once), grab 
    the Chaos Emerald.
    
    Note: To complete mission B, first deposit 400 rings as usual. Then either 
    play pinball or go back through the sewer to get the extra fifty rings you 
    need.

    (Start to Checkpoint 1)
    
    Grab the rings, then hit the dash pad and run out onto the hill. Go up, hit 
    the spring and enter the next room. Touch the spring and jump straight across 
    the icicles to the other side. Continue, hit the spring, then go out the 
    doorway and grab the rocket. Go down the hallway to checkpoint #1.
    
    (Checkpoint 1 to Checkpoint 2)
    
    Fall down to the bottom of the cave. Hit the spring, then, while avoiding the 
    spikes that pop out of the ground, touch the next spring. Go across the path 
    of icicles, and then go up to the next spring. Continue, and when you see 
    some rings in the formation of an arrow, use the homing attack to get to the 
    other side. Hit the dash pad, go across yet another path of icicles, then 
    touch the spring and guide yourself to the next platform. Touch the button, 
    and then quickly run across the path that appears to the second checkpoint.
    
    (Checkpoint 2 to End)
    
    Run up the path, step on the boost pad, and continue to a "1" pad. There are 
    four pads total, so jump until you get back on firm ground. In a second, a 
    gigantic icicle will fall. Go across it and down the hallway until you get to 
    the snowboarding section of the level.
    
    There really isn't a lot I can say about this. It really isn't hard at all. 
    In fact, it's touch to die at this part even if you try. Just 'board down 
    until you come to the Chaos Emerald.

    (Start to Checkpoint 1)
    
    Get a ring or two, use a homing attack to destroy the robot driving one of 
    the cars, then jump inside. The controls in this thing are simple - A is gas, 
    B is break/reverse, and the control stick is to steer. The more rings you 
    have, the faster you go. Now, drive down the course. For this part, you 
    really don't need a walkthrough. Just drive down, avoiding other cars and 
    monkeys, until you reach the end and jump down a hole. You'll land in a 
    roller coaster; just let yourself get carried to the end, where you'll be 
    dumped down another big hole. The first checkpoint in just inside.
    
    (Checkpoint 1 to Checkpoint 2)
    
    Go up to the bowling alley. Touch the two charge-up things to start. The 
    point of this is to press A when you are lined up with the pins, and knock 
    over as many as possible. The number you knock over determines the number of 
    pins that come out of the crown in the next room. Now, keep going, and past 
    the pool, you'll find the second checkpoint.
    
    (Checkpoint 2 to Checkpoint 3)
    
    Go through the second bowling alley, then destroy the monkeys and ascend the 
    stairs. In the merry-go-round room, avoid the spikes, and go to the other 
    side of the room. Checkpoint 3 is there.
    
    (Checkpoint 3 to Checkpoint 4)
    
    Continue, down the left side of the pool, and touch the springs to get on the 
    roof. Go over to where the monkey is, then jump over the barrels and touch 
    one of the boost pads. You'll be propelled into a pool. Jump off the roof 
    into the courtyard, and go over to where the monkeys and spiked balls are. 
    Avoid the spiked balls and continue. You'll come to a place with two monkeys; 
    destroy them and move on. When you get to a place with a bunch of barrels, 
    hop over them, jump over to the other platform, and run up the ramp to 
    checkpoint 4.
    
    (Checkpoint 4 to End)
    
    Hit the spring, and then jump up the floating platforms and onto the roof. 
    Run around the outside of it, hit the spring, then go inside the building and 
    break the capsule.

    (Start to Checkpoint 1)
    
    Grab the rings, then touch the dash pad and run until you land on a bunch of 
    class panels. Jump off them before they break, then hit the spring and jump 
    on the platform. It will take you to checkpoint 1.
    
    (Checkpoint 1 to Checkpoint 2)
    
    Hit the boost pad and go until you are running sideways. Let yourself drop 
    down to the bottom path, and continue until you get to an airplane. Avoiding 
    the propellers, grab on to the bottom. You'll be dropped off (pun indeed) in 
    front of checkpoint 2.
    
    (Checkpoint 2 to End)
    
    Go forward, follow the path left, and then grab the rocket. Run down the 
    road, and then let yourself fall into the gigantic container-like thing. 
    Continue down the path, and grab the rocket at the end. Go forward, and 
    you'll emerge on a glass floor; it will break, and you'll start running down 
    the building. Run all the way down to the bottom. Now, go down the hallway to 
    get to a new area. Run down the road, and when you can go right or left, 
    choose left. Go until you get to a water fountain. Go into the little crevice 
    on the left, then hit the spring, jump up to the bell, and turn right to 
    reach the capsule.

    Shortcuts
    -----
    
    On the first steep drop, jump up and land on the floating road. From 
    there jump over to the right to find an alternate, shorter path to the 
    first checkpoint. You must do this quickly however, or else you won't 
    save any time at all!
    
    After checkpoint 1, when you are running sideways, avoid the barriers and you 
    should find a secret path that will shave off some time.
    
    Not a shortcut, just a tip: in the area after the shortcut mentioned 
    above, try to take the highest possible path.
    
    On the part between checkpoints 2 and 3 where you fall into the 
    cylinder, land on the floating platform, then use the homing attack on 
    the path of robots to reach another platform. At this point, jump down, 
    take the rocket and proceed normally.

    (Start to Checkpoint 1)
    
    Run forward and use the rocket to reach a higher platform. Continue on, 
    avoiding the spiked balls, and use the monkey bars to cross the gap. 
    Continue, go up the ramp and use the spring to get to the top of the 
    cliff. Go down the path and you'll find checkpoint 1.
    
    (Checkpoint 1 to Checkpoint 2)
    
    Run around behind the spiked ball, touch the button, then go back and 
    grab the rocket. On the upper platform, climb across the monkey bars 
    and go through the tunnel. Keep going, run across the bridge before it 
    collapses, and then hit the spring to reach checkpoint 2.
    
    (Checkpoint 2 to Checkpoint 3)
    
    Go across the bridge, and then run forward while avoiding the spiked 
    balls until you reach a spring. Touch it, and on the platform you are 
    bounced to, grab the zip line. You'll get off right in front of 
    checkpoint 3.
    
    (Checkpoint 3 to Checkpoint 4)
    
    Jump from platform to platform until you reach the spring. Use it, and 
    then run across the bridge. Continue until you get to a place where a 
    rocket should be. Press the button next to it, then grab the rocket, 
    and hit the spring on the next platform. Climb across the monkey bars 
    (ignore the fire-breathing skull, the dire doesn't reach you), and once 
    on the other side, use multiple homing attacks on the enemies to reach 
    the platform with a spring. Climb all the way up the weaving wire 
    platforms. At the top, you'll find the fourth checkpoint.
    
    (Checkpoint 4 to Checkpoint 5)
    
    Run across the two bridges, then continue down the ramp and hit the springs. 
    Keep going until you reach a button; press it to make the rocket come out. 
    Take the rocket up to checkpoint #5.
    
    (Checkpoint 5 to Checkpoint 6)
    
    On the left are some monkey bars you can use to cross the pit of lava. On the 
    other side, grab on to the zip line, then jump in the hole to get to 
    checkpoint 6.
    
    (Checkpoint 6 to Checkpoint 7)
    
    Run down the hallway until you reach a lava lake. Hit the spring, jump across 
    a few platform, and when you reach a couple floating robots, use a few 
    successive homing attacks to get to the other side. Go straight and soon 
    you'll reach checkpoint 7.
    
    (Checkpoint 7 to Checkpoint 8)
    
    Hit the spring, and then jump across the big slabs of stone, destroying 
    robots as necessary, until you get back on firm ground. Run forward, jump 
    across the platforms, destroy the enemies, and then jump across a few more 
    platforms. Hit the nearby spring and jump to the last platform. When the 
    island next to you finishes sinking, use homing attacks on the robots to 
    reach it. Go across the two bridges and jump to the nearby island, and then, 
    jump to yet another island. Run across the bridge and hit the spring to reach 
    a few dash pads. Take them, and then run ahead to checkpoint 8.
    
    (Checkpoint 8 to End)
    
    Continue, carefully avoiding the fire and giant hammers, until you get 
    to a rocket. Grab it, and then rocket out to the capsule.

    Shortcuts
    -----
    
    Immediately after you grab the first rocket, while you are still in the 
    air, go right and get on the platform with the spring. You'll end up 
    right in front of checkpoint 1.
    
    On the platform you reach right after you let go of the second rocket, 
    look to your right, then hit the springs. On the top platform is 
    checkpoint 2.
    
    After checkpoint 4, after you go across the two bridges, jump down to 
    your left and land on the platform there. This way, you don't have to 
    run all the way around the mountain.

    (Start to Checkpoint 1)
    
    Sidestep around the cylinder. Checkpoint 1 is right on the other side.
    
    (Checkpoint 1 to Checkpoint 2)
    
    Run across the bridge and climb up the ladder. Hit the spring, and then jump 
    from cylinder to cylinder to the next platform. Touch the boost pad, and then 
    run forward to the second checkpoint.
    
    (Checkpoint 2 to Checkpoint 3)
    
    Hit the boost pad, and then sidestep around the cylinder to the other side. 
    Touch the boost pad and run until you get to a spring. Hit it, and then run 
    down the path, avoiding the spikes, to checkpoint 3.
    
    (Checkpoint 3 to Checkpoint 4)
    
    Time your ascent of the ladder so that you avoid the spikes, and then climb 
    across the monkey bars. When they break, jump to the highest platform you 
    can. If you're below the top one, use the ladder on the cylinder to climb up 
    a level. Continue until you get to a rocket, and then touch it to destroy the 
    cannon and get to checkpoint #4.
    
    (Checkpoint 4 to Checkpoint 5)
    
    The next part is a little tough. You see, you are on top of the ship, and 
    every so often, winds will kick up and blow you off course. When they do, 
    either grab on to something or use a bunch of homing attacks to battle 
    against the winds. Now, follow the arrows on the ground until you get to a 
    ramp. Go up it, hit the spring on the top, and then jump to the platform. 
    Checkpoint 5 in nearby.
    
    (Checkpoint 5 to Checkpoint 6)
    
    Run forward as fast as you can. The floor is falling away beneath you, so as 
    you run try to stay on the highest platform there is. At the end, go forward 
    to the rocket. What you have to do now is time it right and shoot the rocket 
    into the cannon's hole. When you do, you'll go to a new area where checkpoint 
    6 is.
    
    (Checkpoint 6 to Checkpoint 7)
    
    Go forward, and to the right side, where there is an elevator. At the top, 
    follow the arrows and hit the dash pad. Climb up the ladder, and follow the 
    arrows to the circular platform at the end. When a hook comes by, jump up and 
    grab it, then jump off at the other side. Checkpoint 7 is right in front of 
    you.
    
    (Checkpoint 7 to Checkpoint 8)
    
    Climb up the ramp to your right, then jump on to the moving platform. Jump 
    across all of them, and then on to the conveyor belt. Jump down, then use the 
    monkey bars and springs to get to the center of the top (ignore the falling 
    garbage, it doesn't do anything). Jump down to checkpoint 8.
    
    (Checkpoint 8 to End)
    
    Touch the spring, then run all the way down the path and push the button. 
    You'll be dumped into a tunnel. Go forward to reach the capsule.

    (Start to Checkpoint 1)
    
    Grab a ring and head forward; at the pool, turn right and keep going. Go up 
    the steps and through the hallway. At the end, you'll emerge in a circular 
    passage. Avoid the blocks that pop out of the walls and continue. After going 
    through another hallway, you'll fly up and land on a platform surrounded by 
    spikes. Jump on the higher platform to get to checkpoint 1.
    
    (Checkpoint 1 to Checkpoint 2)
    
    Run forward and into the snake's mouth. At the split, go to the left and 
    touch the switch to raise the water. When the giant stone snake swims by, 
    jump on it, and jump on to the next accessible platform it swims by. Jump on 
    the switch surrounded by snake statues, then jump up the platforms and step 
    on the switch that raises the water. Jump on the snake, and then jump off 
    again on to the next platform. Step on the switch then go to the right and 
    jump up to the highest platform. Jump across the gap and step on the switch 
    to raise the water again. Jump on the snake, and then jump on to the platform 
    with the switch surrounded by snake statues. This switch opens the door that 
    you use to exit the room. Jump back on the snake, and then jump off again on 
    to the platform with statues on the edges. Go through the door and down the 
    hallway to checkpoint 2.
    
    (Checkpoint 2 to Checkpoint 3)
    
    Keep going along the path until you get to a darkened room. Touch the thing 
    that looks somewhat like a large locket and move it to the right, so that 
    it's facing the mirror. The room will light up when you do it right. Go 
    forward, and move the next locket thing to the right so that it's facing the 
    mirror. Continue down the path to yet another locket. Move it so that it, 
    too, is facing the mirror, then keep going, moving lockets to face mirrors as 
    necessary, until you get to a path of rings. Use a Light Speed Dash to pass 
    this, and then go forward to checkpoint #3.
    
    (Checkpoint 3 to Checkpoint 4)
    
    Go down the river, and you'll land on a tiny island with a spring on it. 
    Touch the spring, and then run down the passageway, avoiding the blocks that 
    pop out of the wall, to checkpoint 4.
    
    (Checkpoint 4 to Checkpoint 5)
    
    Go forward, and a boulder will start to chase you. Keep running to the end, 
    where you will hit a spring. Go down the hallway to checkpoint 5.
    
    (Checkpoint 5 to Checkpoint 6)
    
    Keep on going until you get to a gigantic room. Go to the right and jump on 
    the switch until the panels line up and arrows appear on them. Run up them, 
    and at the split, go to the left. Fall onto the platform at the end and use 
    the switch to make another path of panels line up, then run along them to 
    another platform. Jump up to the top, press the switch, and then jump onto 
    the path of lined-up panels in front of you. Go until you get to a rotating 
    brick. Use a homing attack to avoid having to use the brick to get to the 
    next platform, and then go to the left to the sixth checkpoint.
    
    (Checkpoint 6 to End)
    
    Head forward, go down the passage and hit the switch Run down the path of 
    panels and jump off the end into a tunnel. Go down it, and at the end, hit 
    the switch to make a path of rings appear. Use a Light Speed Dash to get to 
    the other side, and run down the passage to reach the end.
    
    -----
    Shortcuts
    -----
    
    This isn't a shortcut, but I'll point it out anyway: in the room after 
    checkpoint 2, don't bother using the mirrors - just run right through. There 
    is enough light for you to see, even if there isn't much.

    Go forward, avoiding the obstacles, then hit the dash pad and run up the path 
    to checkpoint 1.
    
    (Checkpoint 1 to Checkpoint 2)
    
    Use a homing attack to destroy the laser-shooting things, and then run down 
    the path until you get to a room. Go to the right side and hit the spring on 
    the wall; you will land in front of checkpoint 2.
    
    (Checkpoint 2 to Checkpoint 3)
    
    In the next part, you have to jump from conveyor belt to conveyor belt until 
    you get to a big spinning cylinder. Continue on down the path, through more 
    cylinders, until you get to a new area. Jump over to the other side by using 
    the platforms and robots, then run down the passageway to checkpoint 3.
    
    (Checkpoint 3 to Checkpoint 4)
    
    Hit the spring, and then jump from platform to platform until you get to 
    another hallway. Run down it, and then step on the switch in the middle of 
    the room. Stay on the platform as it goes up, and then use the floating 
    platforms to reach the elevator. Take it, and then run down the path to 
    checkpoint 4.
    
    (Checkpoint 4 to Checkpoint 5)
    
    Go down the gigantic steps and on to the platform, and then look carefully 
    over the edge until you see another platform. Jump to it, then look over the 
    edge and find another platform. Jump to it, and then keep jumping down until 
    you get to the final platform. At this point, jump on to the mesh circulator 
    platform. In the center is an elevator, enter it. At the bottom, go straight 
    forward and down the hallway to a room full of crabs. Go to the upper-right 
    hand corner, and then climb up the ladder. Jump over the spikes and run to 
    the right to get to checkpoint 5.
    
    (Checkpoint 5 to Checkpoint 6)
    
    Use the fans to get through the next room. Then, turn to the left to get to 
    another fan room. Go through it, and then go forward to the last fan room. In 
    the next room are another bunch of crabs. Go across to the opposite side of 
    the room, hit the dash pad and run along the path to checkpoint 6.
    
    (Checkpoint 6 to Checkpoint 7)
    
    Go forward, and you'll get to a room where you fall way. At the bottom, use 
    the fans to get to the next hallway. At the end of it, you'll emerge in yet 
    another room full of crabs. Head to Sonic's right and enter the sliding door. 
    Run straight ahead to checkpoint 7.
    
    (Checkpoint 7 to Checkpoint 8)
    
    Go to the right and run down the path. You'll soon reach checkpoint 8.
    
    (Checkpoint 8 to End)
    
    Run up the steps, and in the next room, go to the right and use a Light Speed 
    Dash to use the rings to cross the gap. This is where the end is.

    Mission C: Beat Sonic to the End of the Stage

    Yup, you have to BEAT SONIC! Thought he and Tails were working together? 
    WRONG! Anyway, most of these mission are pretty easy, as Sonic seems to get 
    stuck be behind things fairly often. If you need walkthroughs, they are here, 
    although I don't think you'll need them.

    Mission B: Collect 50 Rings and Destroy the Capsule Before Sonic
    -----
    
    These are pretty much the same as when you played with Sonic, only now you 
    have to do it faster. They aren't much trouble, as most of the stages are 
    abundant with rings.
    
    -----
    Mission A: Beat an Even Faster Sonic
    -----
    
    He still gets stuck behind things. You need to go a little faster to beat 
    him, but it's no big deal; if you got all of Sonic's A emblems these should 
    be a breeze. Use Tails' flying ability to cut corners; this can help save 
    TONS of time. The green rings also can speed you up, so fly through them 
    whenever possible.

    next platform. Hit the spring, and then go on one of the paths on the right. 
    Go all the way around until you get to the top of the mountain. Stand in the 
    center and use the gust to hit the spring. It will propel you to checkpoint

    Mission C: Find all 3 Pieces of the Master Emerald
    -----
    
    Most of there are pretty easy. All you have to do is, well, find the emerald 
    pieces. Use your sensor; it will blink when you get close to an emerald 
    piece. If you're really having trouble finding the piece, try using a hint 
    ball, which will dash off in the direction of the nearest piece.
    
    -----
    Mission B: Find the 3 Emerald pieces without using hints
    -----
    
    Since the hint balls are essentially useless anyway, this should be much of a 
    problem; you just have to rely a bit more on your sensor.
    
    -----
    Mission A: Find the 3 Emerald Pieces within the Time Limit
    -----
    
    For most of these, you only have one minute. While that may seem like an 
    insanely short amount of time, there is a trick involved. Find the first 
    piece, taking as long as you want. When you find it, don't get it! Pause the 
    game and restart. Since you now know where the piece is, you can run straight 
    to it. Repeat for the second and third Emerald Pieces.

    Stage Overview
    -----
    
    This takes place in the area at the end of Sonic's  Speed Highway stage. 
    Anyway, you really shouldn't have any trouble locating the Emerald Pieces 
    here, because they are almost always in easy to find places. If all else 
    fails, try using the hint balls.

    Stage Overview
    -----
    
    This level is fairly small, so finding the pieces shouldn't be much trouble; 
    there is, however, one tricky place that an emerald may be located at. Head 
    to the second floor and face the lion. Go to your right and there will be a 
    barrel with a path of rings above it. Jump on it, and go to the left so you 
    fall on the ledge. Touch the button and fall in the hole that opens up. There 
    may be an Emerald Piece in here.

    The area is large, which can make Emerald hunting a pain. There are no secret 
    places the pieces are hidden in; just glide around until you locate them all.

    -----
    
    Sure, you can use the lit-up panels on the walls to climb up, but why bother? 
    Just glide into the wall and climb up! There isn't a lot to say about this 
    stage. It isn't particularly large, so you shouldn't have much trouble 
    locating the Emerald Pieces.

    Mission A Difficulty: Hard
    
    -----
    Stage Overview
    -----
    
    The pieces can be a little tricky to locate in this level. As you try to find 
    them, some may seem to be in walls. If there are doors on the wall, well, the 
    piece is in the door. To get the door to open, return to your starting point 
    and move the lever in the direction of the door (If the door is on the left 
    side of the ship, move the lever to the left; if it's on the right side of 
    the ship, move the lever to the right). Return to the door, and it will be 
    opening and closing.

    Mission C: Evade Zero and Grab the Balloon
    -----
    
    These shouldn't be much trouble. All you have to do is reach the end. Not 
    much I can say about these right here - check the walkthroughs if you need 
    help.

    Mission B: Collect 50 Rings and Grab the Balloon
    -----
    
    As with Sonic's, these are harder. Be careful, especially when you're in 
    close quarters with enemies. There is no time limit, so go at you're leisure.
    
    -----
    Mission A: Grab the Balloon within the Time Limit
    -----
    
    These can get intense. Go as fast as you possibly can, and try not to stop; 
    Amy's acceleration is a bit lacking. Keep trying, eventually you should be 
    able to claim all these emblems.

    (Start to Checkpoint 1)
    
    Go down the steps and press the button on the floor. Run around the pool and 
    press the remaining two buttons to make the door near the first button open. 
    Enter it and run down the path until you reach a hallway with mirrors for 
    walls. Run down it (hurry, Zero is chasing you!) and continue on to 
    checkpoint 1.
    
    (Checkpoint 1 to Checkpoint 2)
    
    In the next hallway, the walls are mirrors again. Run down the hallway (try 
    not to get confused by all the reflections) and continue to a room with big 
    white tiles and another mirror. Some of the tiles are trap doors; if you look 
    in the mirror, these tiles aren't there at all. Avoid them and climb up the 
    steps. Go to the right and jump over to the brick hallway, and continue on to 
    the second and last checkpoint.
    
    (Checkpoint 2 to End)
    
    Head over to the gate, and go to the right and around it. Run up the incline 
    and grab the balloon to end the level.

    (Start to Checkpoint 1)
    
    Run out the door and to the end of the hallway. To the right is a handle; 
    grab it and rotate the Control Stick counterclockwise to open the door. 
    Continue until you reach a small pool. Jump across the platforms in it to 
    reach checkpoint 1.
    
    (Checkpoint 1 to Checkpoint 2)
    
    Go forward, grab the handle and turn it to the left to open the door. In the 
    next room, jump to the top of the platform and press the switch to fill the 
    room up with water. Hop across to the door and turn the handle 
    counterclockwise once, then clockwise thrice to open the door. Right inside 
    is checkpoint 2.
    
    (Checkpoint 2 to Checkpoint 3)
    
    Run down the hallway, jump up the steps and go through the tunnel to reach 
    another hallway. Run down it, go up the steps and jump to the tunnel. Go down 
    it to the end, where you'll find checkpoint 3.
    
    (Checkpoint 3 to Checkpoint 4)
    
    Go out of the bathroom, and at the place where the path splits, take the path 
    to your right. Use the handle to open the door and jump in. Go in the door 
    and jump across the gears to the other side. Press the button, jump on the 
    big gear, and from there jump to the next platform where you'll fine 
    checkpoint 4.
    
    (Checkpoint 4 to Checkpoint 5)
    
    Jump on the gear to your right and press the switch at the top. Then, go on 
    the left gear and jump to the platform at the top. Run down to the big door 
    and enter it. Go down the platform to where the switch is, and press it. This 
    will rotate the platform to another door, so enter it. Run down the path 
    (ignore the steps) and rotate the handle counterclockwise to raise the 
    platform. Go forward and jump down on to the lower platform to your left. Hit 
    the spring to reach checkpoint 5.
    
    (Checkpoint 5 to Checkpoint 6)
    
    In the next room, pick up a block and put it in the slot of the same color. 
    Do this to all four blocks, and Zero will break through the wall. Enter the 
    hole Zero created and run down the path to checkpoint 6.
    
    (Checkpoint 6 to End)
    
    Get on the platform in front of you and raise it by turning the handle to the 
    left. At the top is another puzzle with colored blocks, but only three of the 
    blocks are near the puzzle. To get the fourth one, bounce off the nearby 
    spring, and you will land on one of three large pipes. The block is on the 
    center one. When you complete the puzzle, a door will open. The balloon is at 
    the end of the hallway inside.

    continue to checkpoint 1.
    
    (Checkpoint 1 to Checkpoint 2)
    
    Jump through the two lasers and continue on to three more lasers. Use the 
    Hammer Jump to leap over these, then enter the doorway and run down the path 
    to two more lasers. Hammer Jump over them and continue on to checkpoint 2.
    
    (Checkpoint 2 to Checkpoint 3)
    
    Step on the switch and wait for the elevator to arrive. When it does, take 
    it, then go to the right and jump over the laser. Jump up to the top of the 
    gigantic steps and enter the doorway. Inside you will find checkpoint 3.
    
    (Checkpoint 3 to Checkpoint 4)
    
    In the next room, one of the doors has the next checkpoint in it. The right 
    door is different every time you play, so try each one until you find 
    checkpoint 4.
    
    (Checkpoint 4 to End)
    
    Head to the right, and use the Hammer Jump to jump up to the high archway. 
    Down the path, you will find the balloon.

    Mission C: Catch Froggy

    These are, for the most part, easy. Froggy is pretty easy to reel in so you 
    shouldn't have much trouble with these missions.
    
    -----
    Mission B: Catch a 1500G Fish and Froggy
    -----
    
    First, make sure you have all the Fishing Lure Upgrades (check the Characters 
    section), then, well, FISH! If there are any hidden fishing spots where you 
    can find larger fish, I have put them in the stage's section.
    
    Mission A: Catch a 2000G Fish and Froggy
    
    Again, make absolutely sure you have all the Fishing Lure Upgrades; then, 
    keep fishing. It can take awhile to find a fish this big so be patient.

    There is no hidden fishing spot, and that's why I'm saying here that there IS 
    NO HIDDEN SPOT WHERE YOU CAN CATCH A 2000G FISH! Sorry, but I'm tired of 
    receiving emails from people asking me about this. I know it's hard, but with 
    patience you can get it. Just get all the Fishing Lure Upgrades and then keep 
    going after the mechanical fish until you find one that weighs 2000G or more.

    Mission Breakdown
    =====------------------------
    
    Before I say anything, I am going to point this out: The time is running 
    BACKWARDS, but you can add more to it by destroying enemies. The more you 
    destroy in one lock-on, the more time out get. It goes like this:
    
    1 Enemy.............1 Second
    2 Enemies...........3 Seconds
    3 Enemies...........6 Seconds
    4 Enemies...........9 Seconds
    5 Enemies...........15 Seconds
    6 or More Enemies...30 Seconds + 5 for each extra enemy

    give, I've included them. Otherwise, just be quick and violent.

    This one's a bit different than the other robots you've had to face. To beat 
    him, you must destroy the pipes on him. There aren't any tricks or anything -

    There is just one part in this stage where there are some enemies you may not 
    notice. In the hole you drop through just after checkpoint 6, there are 
    several crevices around the edge with monkeys in them, so you might want to 
    hover for a moment to shoot them and get the time bonus.

    away 200 points. This really isn't all that hard. Beat it once and you get

    Quick note: All these difficulty rankings were based on how hard I found them 
    to be. Of course, everything's relative; one I found easy you might find 
    insanely hard and visa versa. Why am I pointing this out? Because I'm getting 
    sick of all the "OMG mission 25 is teh hardnes why iz it rankde eazy" emails.

    ===========================================
    8.1 Understanding and Caring for Chao [NCC]
    ===========================================
    
    Chao are, essentially, virtual pets, somewhat like those Toamgotchi 
    things that for some reason where all the range a while back. They are 
    simple creatures on the outside, but once you delve into their 
    lifestyle, they turn out to be extremely complicated. Let's look at 
    Chao in a more in-depth manner.
    
    =====------------------------
    Chao Gardens
    =====------------------------
    
    Before you can do anything, you must reach the Chao Gardens, which is 
    where all Chao activity will take place. Here are the locations of the 
    three gardens:
    
    Station Square: Go into the hotel and enter the left elevator.
    
    Mystic Ruins: Go into the cave in the mountain behind Tails' Workshop.
                  Go to your right and you will find a mine car; jump into
                  it and you will go to the garden.
    
    Egg Carrier: In the back of the Egg Carrier's hull, there are a bunch
                 of tiles on the ground that have letters on them. Press
                 them to spell out "E-G-G-M-A-N". The door will open, and
                 you can enter the Chao Garden.
    
    Also, you should note that there are transports that can take you to 
    the other two gardens inside each garden.
    
    =====------------------------
    Hatching the Chao
    =====------------------------
    
    Chao start out in eggs. What a great way to begin, eh? You start out 
    with two eggs in each garden. You can either wait for them to hatch on 
    their own, or, if you're impatient, pick them up, rock them for a 
    moment, and then put them back down, which will speed up the hatching 
    process. If you're REALLY impatient, you can make them hatch 
    immediately by throwing them at the wall. I don't recommend this last 
    method however, as Chao that are hatched in this way often aren't as 
    intelligent as other Chao.
    
    =====------------------------
    Basic Chao Care
    =====------------------------
    
    Once your Chao are hatched, you must care for them. This basically 
    revolves around feeding and petting them. To feed a Chao, find a fruit, 
    walk up to the Chao and give it to the Chao. If it's hungry, it will 
    eat; if it's not, it won't. Not too hard, huh? I should also point out 
    that there are three different types of fruit: normal, Hero and Dark. 
    The Hero and Dark types will change the Chao's alignment; see the 
    "Evolution" section for more info.
    
    Petting a Chao will get it to like you. If the Chao likes you, 
    whistling will cause it to run over to you.
    
    =====------------------------
    Chao Stats
    =====------------------------
    
    OK, this is one of the most important parts of Chao care. Feeding a 
    Chao fruit and giving it the animals that you find in action stages 
    will raise its stats. The panel that shows what your Chao's stats are 
    looks like so:
    
    +-----------------------------+
    |       (Chao's Name)         |
    +-----------------------------+
    |Swim                      xxx|
    |Lv.xx    [][][][][][][][][][]|
    |                             |
    |Fly                       xxx|
    |Lv.xx    [][][][][][][][][][]|
    |                             |
    |Run                       xxx|
    |Lv.xx    [][][][][][][][][][]|
    |                             |
    |Power                     xxx|
    |Lv.xx    [][][][][][][][][][]|
    |                             |
    |Stamina                   xxx|
    |Lv.xx    [][][][][][][][][][]|
    +-----------------------------+
    
    When the ten dots in a particular section are filled, the Chao's level 
    will raise and it'll gain a certain amount of stat points. The number 
    that appears when the Chao levels up is how many points it gains. The 
    max level that a Chao can reach is 99, and the highest number of stat 
    points that it can have is 3266. Also, Chao will learn to swim, fly and 
    run when their stat points in that category reach 100.
    
    What are these good for, you say? The Chao races. The higher that stat 
    point, the better your Chao will be at that particular skill.
    
    Here is a list of the animals in the game if you need it:
    
    +---------+-------------------+---------------+
    |Animal   |Main Stat Raised   |Found At       |
    +---------+-------------------+---------------+
    |Deer     |Running            |Speed Highway  |
    |Elephant |Power              |Red Mountain   |
    |Gorilla  |Power              |Red Mountain   |
    |Kangaroo |Running            |Speed Highway  |
    |Koala    |All-Around         |Speed Highway  |
    |Lion     |Power              |Red Mountain   |
    |Mole     |All-Around         |Red Mountain   |
    |Rabbit   |Running            |Speed Highway  |
    |Parrot   |Flying             |Sky Deck       |
    |Peacock  |Flying             |Sky Deck       |
    |Penguin  |Swimming           |Emerald Coast  |
    |Seal     |Swimming           |Emerald Coast  |
    |Sea Otter|Swimming           |Emerald Coast  |
    |Skunk    |All-Around         |Sky Deck       |
    |Swallow  |Flying             |Sky Deck       |
    +---------+-----------------------------------+
    
    ========================
    8.2 Chao Evolution [CVL]
    ========================
    
    =====------------------------
    Preparing for First Evolution
    =====------------------------
    
    First off, I'm going to deal with the Hero and Dark alignments. To 
    change a Chao's alignment, feed it lots of fruits of that alignment. So 
    if you want a Hero Chao, feed it lots of Hero fruits and if you want a 
    Dark Chao, feed it lots of Dark fruits. If you want a Neutral Chao, 
    feed it equal amounts of both, or just feed it normal fruits.
    
    Now, the other part of the evolution will determine your Chao's type. A 
    Chao can be either a Power, Flying, Swimming, Running or Normal Chao. 
    I'm pretty sure that whatever stat is the highest, it will evolve into.
    
    =====------------------------
    First Evolution
    =====------------------------
    
    When your Chao's Stamina stat hits about 200 or so, your Chao will go 
    into a cocoon for a while, and then come out evolved. If it's a Hero 
    Chao, it will have a halo around it's head; if it's a Dark Chao, it 
    will have a Spiked ball above its head. If it's a Normal Chao, there 
    will still be the same round ball that there was when he was a child.
    
    To tell what alignment your Chao is (Power, Flying, ect.) enter the 
    Chao Race. Your Chao's stat screen will now show its alignment and 
    type.
    
    =====------------------------
    Second Evolution
    =====------------------------
    
    Unlike the first evolution, the second evolution takes place gradually 
    over time. It's fairly simple. Whatever stat it gains the most of, it 
    will evolve into that type. It can be a different type than the first 
    evolution, so you can have a Running/Flying Chao, Power/Normal Chao, 
    and so on. There are actually SEVENTY-FIVE total possibilities!
    
    That is all I have for now. I hope to add a lot in the near future.
    
    =========================================
    8.3 Mating, Death and Reincarnation [MDR]
    =========================================
    
    =====------------------------
    Mating
    =====------------------------
    
    This is simple enough. Once two Chao have both gone through the first 
    evolution, they may choose to mate if they like each other enough. 
    Basically, they will rub their heads together, and pretty soon, an egg 
    will pop out between them, and you may hatch and raise that Chao as 
    normal.
    
    If you want to increase a Chao's chances of mating, feed it a Heart 
    Fruit. However, no matter how many you give it, it won't mate before 
    the first evolution, so don't bother trying.
    
    =====------------------------
    Death and Reincarnation
    =====------------------------
    
    Like all living things, Chao will die eventually. This usually happens 
    at around age five. Sad, I know, but there IS a light! If you were nice 
    enough to your Chao, it will go into a pink cocoon, and morph into an 
    egg! Hatch the egg, and the new Chao will have the following:
    
    Same name as the old Chao
    Same Animal Parts that the old Chao had
    Same Chao Race records
    About 10% of its old stats
    If it was a Dark Chao, it will have evil, arched eyes
    
    However, if you were mean to your Chao, this miracle of life will not 
    happen. It will go into a grey cocoon and die, leaving nothing behind 
    but memories. Better luck next time!
    
    ==========================
    8.4 The Black Market [TBM]
    ==========================
    
    Yep, it's still here! The black market is where you can buy various 
    things for you Chao. Here are the things, broken down by category (I'm 
    pretty sure I have everything, but I may not):

    8.5 Chao Racing [CRC]
    =====================
    
    =====------------------------
    Overview
    =====------------------------
    
    Alright, this is probably the most fun thing about raising Chao in the 
    first place. This also gives you motivation to keep raising your Chao's 
    stats! You will also get emblems if you win enough races, so if you 
    plan on unlocking all the GameGear games, you have to do these.
    
    To enter the Chao Races, go through the brown double-doors in the 
    Station Square Chao garden. Pick a Chao, and get ready to race!
    
    =====------------------------
    Beginner Race
    =====------------------------
    
    These are the easiest races. A Chao that is around level 25 should have 
    a good chance of winning. Here are the courses:
    
    =====------------------------
    Jewel Races
    =====------------------------
    
    You must complete all the beginner courses to unlock these. These are 
    pretty much the same as the Beginner courses, except your opponents are 
    a heck of a lot tougher to beat. A Chao that is around level 50 should 
    have a good chance of winning.
    
    =====------------------------
    Party Races
    =====------------------------
    
    Multiplayer race!
    
    If your friends have Chao to race against yours, they can put their 
    memory card in slot two and race against you. You can have up to four 
    people playing at once, as long as you have enough controllers.
    
    =====------------------------
    The Courses
    =====------------------------
    
    The same courses are used for all the races.
    
    -----
    Pearl Course
    -----
    Power Chao will have an advantage here.
    
    -----
    Amethyst Course
    -----
    Flying Chao will have an advantage here
    
    -----
    Sapphire Course
    -----
    Power and Swimming Chao will have an advantage here.

    Ruby Course
    -----
    Swimming Chao will have an advantage here.
    
    -----
    Emerald Course

    Chaos Chao

    Okay, these are the hardest Chao to get, but they are also the coolest. 
    They are IMMORTAL, so you don't have to worry about them dying, and 
    they also look pretty freakin' cool.
    
    To get a Chao to become one of these, first, the Chao must be in its 
    third life; that is, it must have reincarnated at least twice. Then, 
    give it one, and only one, of every animal in the game.
    
    Next, decide whether you want an Angel Chaos Chao, a Devil Chao Chao, 
    or a Normal Chaos Chao. If you want an Angel Chaos Chao, feed it lots 
    of Hero Fruit. If you want a Dark Chaos Chao, feed it lots of Dark 
    Fruit. If you want a normal Chaos Chao, only feed it Normal Fruit.
    
    If you meet all these requirements, when your Chao evolves, it should 
    turn into a Chaos Chao.
    
    One more thing of interest: Chaos Chao can't mate. So, don't be 
    expecting any offspring anytime soon.
    
    =====------------------------
    Other Special Chao
    =====------------------------
    
    Note that none of these Chao have special powers. They are for looks 
    only.
    
    NiGHTS Chao: Using a normal egg, make the Chao a Neutral/Flying Chao on
                 its first evolution, and on its second evolution push it
                 towards Flying as well. If you did it right, it will look
                 somewhat like the character from the Sega Saturn game
                 NiGHTS.
    
    Sonic Chao: Using a normal egg, make the Chao a Neutral/Running Chao on
                its first evolution, and on its second evolution make it 
                running also. The Chao will be green after its first
                evolution, but over time it will turn blue.
    
    Super Sonic Chao: Do the same as for the Sonic Chao, but use either a
                      Gold Egg or Shiny Yellow Egg instead of a normal one.
    
    Metal Sonic Chao: Using a Shiny Sky Blue Egg, make the Chao a
                      Neutral/Running Chao on its first evolution, and on
                      its second evolution, make it normal. Behold! Metal
                      Sonic!
    
    Shadow Chao: Do the same as for the Sonic Chao, but make it Dark
                 instead of Neutral.
    
    Super Shadow Chao: Do the same as for the Shadow Chao, but use a Shiny
                       Brown Egg instead of a normal one.
    
    Tails Chao: First, you must own a copy of Phantasy Star Online Episodes
                I and II for the GameCube, a Game Bay Advance, A GCN-GBA
                Link Cable and a copy of either Sonic Advance or Sonic
                Advance 2. In Phantasy Star Online Episode I, complete the
                hunters guild mission "The Fake In Yellow". When you beat
                it, return to the planet. Go near the waterfall and wait
                for a while - a Chao should appear. Go back to the pioneer
                and find the GBA Transport System. Stand on it, and you
                will be able to download your Chao to your Game Boy, at
                which point you can upload it to Sonic Adventure DX. (Sorry
                if this was confusing, but it was the best I could do.)
    
    Knuckles Chao: Using a Red Egg, make it a Neautral/Power Chao, and on
                   its second evolution make it Flying. You can try using
                   the Reg Egg Shell for a mask if you want. This doesn't
                   resemble Knuckles that much but it's probably as close
                   as we're ever gonna get.
    
    Amy Chao: Using a Pink Egg, make the Chao a Neutral/Running Chao in the
              first evolution, and then push it towards Running on the
              second evolution also. You can try using skunk parts to
              represent her hair. If you do this right you'll end up with a
              Chao that kind of resembles Amy.
    
    =====------------------------
    Special Chao Eggs
    =====------------------------
    
    I wasn't sure where to put this... so, I stuck it here!
    
    There is one egg in each adventure field: a Gold Egg in Station Square, 
    a Silver Egg in the Mystic Ruins, and an Onyx Egg on the Egg Carrier. 
    Here is how to get the eggs:
    
    Station Square: This egg is hidden in the antiques shop, near Knuckles'
                    entrance to Speed Highway. It's in the window, but
                    every time you try to take it, bars come down and block
                    you from exiting. To get the egg, first go out of the
                    shop and go to the right, hugging the wall, You will
                    soon reach a grassy area. Look around for a rock in the
                    shape of an egg. When you find it, take it back to the
                    shop, remove the egg, and put the rock in its place.
                    You may now exit.
    
    Mystic Ruins: Go down to the lake and look to your right. Push the
                  rectangle thing, which will result in an egg coming out
                  of the waterfall. Wait until it floats to shore and then
                  grab it.
    
    Egg Carrier: You can only get this egg with Amy and E-102Y. Go to the
                 cell area, and you should see and egg in the middle cell.
                 Push the switch and the gate will open, and you may grab
                 the egg.
    
    If you want these eggs to reappear, you must lose all your lives and 
    make the "Continue?" screen appear. Once you see that, you may get the 
    eggs over again.
    
    That's all the info I have on Chao for the moment. There will probably be a 
    lot more added in the near future.

    WARNING: I bear no responsibility for any damage these may do to your game, 
    WHATSOEVER. Remember, these were NOT MEANT TO HAPPEN. They are GLITCHES. I 
    recommend that you remove your memory card from the system before you try any 
    of these.
    
    And a note: This is in no way a complete list. There are so many glitches 
    that making a complete list is near impossible. These are some of the best 
    glitches.
    
    ===========================
    10.1 Sonic's Glitches [SNG]
    ===========================
    
    =====------------------------
    Get to Tails' Speed Highway
    =====------------------------
    Difficulty: Easy/Medium
    
    In Speed Highway, get to the rocket that you take right before you get to the 
    part where you run down the building, but DON'T TOUCH IT! Look to the leaft 
    to see a floating road. Spin-dash and quickly jump to it.
    
    ==========================
    10.2 Tails' Glitches [TLG]
    ==========================
    
    =====------------------------
    Get to Emerald Coast
    =====------------------------
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    In Station Square, go to the pool area. Face the sliding glass doors, and go 
    to the left, where you should find an invisible corner. Let go of the control 
    stick and fly up; you should fly through the ceiling. Go forward a little, 
    and then maneuver yourself around so that you get to Emerald Coast. This can 
    be a little hard, as you can fall through the floor to your death, so keep 
    trying.
    
    =====------------------------
    Get to the End of Sonic's Speed Highway
    =====------------------------
    Difficulty: Easy/Medium
    
    In Tails' Speed Highway stage, first go to the first checkpoint. Fly down to 
    the top of the building, and then fly through the green ring. As soon as you 
    stop moving, turn around in midair and get on the floating road. Use the 
    boost pads to shoot yourself up into the air, and then fly to the right. Try 
    to fly through the large, neon sign in the building. If you do, you'll end up 
    in a hallway. Walk forward to be at the part where Sonic runs down the 
    building - only you won't be running, you'll be falling. Pause the game and 
    press restart to make the race meter disappear, so you can continue on to the 
    end of the stage.
    
    =============================
    10.3 Knuckles' Glitches [KNG]
    =============================
    
    =====------------------------
    Backwards Punch
    =====------------------------
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    In Station Square, go to the place where you fought Chaos 0, and go to the 
    brick wall. Get really close to it, face it and do a triple punch. You should 
    fly backwards.
    
    =====------------------------
    Splashing Tree
    =====------------------------
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Go to the Mystic Ruins jungle area, and go to the tree near Big's house. 
    Climb up the tree trunk on the back. If you climb over the right place, you 
    will see a splash of water come out of the tree. In addition, if you stop 
    when you bubbles coming out of Knuckles, he will drown in about twenty 
    seconds.
    
    =========================
    10.4 Amy's Glitches [AMG]
    =========================
    
    =====------------------------
    Get Inside the Mirror
    =====------------------------
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    In Twinkle Park, between checkpoints one and two, there is a place where you 
    have to bounce on a spring to reach a higher area. There is a reflection of 
    that spring in the nearby mirror. Hit the reflection with your hammer, and 
    you'll fly up... INSIDE THE MIRROR. You may continue, but when the mirror 
    ends, you will fall and die.
    
    =========================
    10.5 Big's Glitches [BGG]
    =========================
    
    Sorry, none of these yet. When I find some, they will be added.
    
    ============================
    10.6 E-102Y's Glitches [YGL]
    ============================
    
    =====------------------------
    Turn Invisible
    =====------------------------
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    In Red Mountain, when you fight E-104E, let the time run out. If you get hit 
    with a missile just after the time runs out, you should turn invisible.
    
    I have quite a few more glitches that I will try to add at a later date.

    11.1 Open Your Heart (Main Theme) [OYH]
    =======================================
    
    Thunder, rain, and lightning
    Danger, water rising
    Clamor, sirens wailing
    It's such a bad sign
    
    Shadows of dark creatures
    Steel clouds floating in the air
    People run for shelter
    What's gonna happen to us?
    
    All the steps we take, all the moves we make, all the pain at stake
    I see the chaos for everyone who are we what can we do
    You and I are same in the way that we have our own styles that we won't
                                                                change
    Yours is filled with evil and mine's not there is no way I can lose
    
    Can't hold on much longer, but I will never let go
    I know it's a one way track, tell me now how long this'll last
    I'm not gonna think this way, nor will I count on others
    Close my eyes and feel it burn, now I see what I've gotta do
    
    Open you heart, it's gonna be alright
    
    Ancient city blazing
    Shadows keep attacking
    Little children crying
    Confusion, hopeless anger
    
    I don't know what it can be but you drive me crazy
    All your cunning tricks make me sick; you won't have it your own way
    
    Can't hold on much longer, but I will never let go
    I know it's a one way track, tell me now how long this'll last
    I'm not gonna think this way, nor will I count on others
    Close my eyes and feel it burn, now I see what I've gotta do
    
    Open your heart...and you will see!
    
    [Guitar Solo]
    
    If it won't stop, there will be no future for us
    Its heart is tied down by all the hate, gotta set him free
    
    I know it's a one way track, tell me now how long this'll last
    Close my eyes and feel it burn, now I see what I've gotta do
    
    Gotta open your heart, dude!
    
    Can't hold on much longer, but I will never let go
    I know it's a one way track, tell me now how long this'll last
    I'm not gonna think this way, nor will I count on others
    Close my eyes and feel it burn, now I see what I've gotta do
    
    Open your heart, it's gonna be all right!
    Open your heart,
    Open your heart,
    Open your heart!!
    
    Oh....yeah!

    11.2 It Doesn't Matter (Theme of Sonic) [TDM]
    =============================================
    
    Well, I don't show off, don't criticize
    I'm just livin' by my own feelings
    And I won't give in, won't compromise
    I just only have a steadfast heart of gold
    
    I don't know why, I can't leave though it might be tough
    But I ain't out of control, just livin' by my word
    Don't ask me why, I don't need a reason
    I got my way, my own way
    
    It doesn't matter now what happens I will never give up the fight
    There is no way I will run away from all of my frights
    Long as the voice inside me says go, I will always keep on running
    There is no way to stop me from going to the very top
    
    It doesn't matter who is wrong and who is right
    
    Well, I won't look back I don't need to
    Time won't wait and I got so much to do
    
    Where do I stop, it's all a blur and so unclear
    Well, I don't know but I can't be wrong
    
    This fight is not for anybody, this is purely for myself
    There is no way I'm gonna give up 'til the very end
    I can't tell what is wrong and what is right, I've got to find the answer
    But I do there's no way I will ever give up
    
    Place all your bets on the one you think is right
    
    [Guitar solo]

    11.3 Believe in Myself (Theme of Tails) [BNM]
    =============================================
    
    When all alone in my chair, I just go about wishing
    I wanna be strong, I really wanna be trusted
    When all alone in my bed, I just go about yearning
    I wanna be cool; I also wanna be like him
    
    But that's not something I can do so easily
    This is not simply my way, my style
    Gotta get a hold of my life
    
    I wanna fly high
    So I can reach the highest of all the heavens
    Somebody will be waiting for me so,
    I have got to fly higher
    
    Gotta keep goin'
    Everything is a brand new challenge for me
    I will believe in myself
    This is the only start for me
    
    When all alone in my sleep, I just go about dreaming
    I see myself there, having the same adventure
    
    If I just follow you, I will never see the light
    Now is the time to find my way through this life
    I'm trying so hard to be strong
    
    I wanna fly high
    So I can reach the highest of all the heavens
    Somebody will be waiting for me so,
    I have got to fly higher
    
    [Guitar solo]
    
    Many friends help me out, in return I help them
    Certain things I can do and there are things that only I can do
    No one's alone!
    
    I wanna fly high
    So I can reach the highest of all the heavens
    Somebody will be waiting for me so,
    I have got to fly higher

    ================================================
    
    Here I come, rougher than the rest of them,
    The best of them, tougher than leather
    You can call me Knuckles, unlike Sonic I don't chuckle
    I'd rather flex my muscles
    I'm hard as nails, it ain't hard to tell

    Feel the right then the worst's left

    The blood of my ancestors flows inside me
    My duty is to save the flower from evil deterioration
    
    I will be the one to set your heart free true
    Must cleanse yourself of that evil spirit that got in you
    
    Streaking lights, loud sounds, and instinct

    Nothing's gonna stand in my way
    
    I will be the one to set your heart free true
    Must cleanse yourself of that evil spirit that got in you

    The new porcupine on the block with the puff chest
    Outta the wilderness with the ruggedness
    Knock, knock, it's Knuckles, the bloat thrower
    Give you the cold shoulder
    My spike goes through boulders
    That's why I stay a loner
    I was born by myself
    I don't need a posse; I get in on by myself
    Advisories get shelved

    11.5 My Sweet Passion (Theme of Amy) [MSP]
    ==========================================
    
    I got out my map and chose a place I wanted to go to
    Packed up my stuff, set out for adventure
    I know that your lucky color is that cool shade of blue
    Won't mind painting myself blue for you
    I guess I'm so easy to understand
    I just do what ever that comes to me naturally
    
    I do understand the feelings of a Persian Cat
    But the Sphinx looked so cute I had to shave it
    He reminds me of parsley when he's standing there all alone
    Makes me wanna be his specialite
    I guess I'm just a self-centered girl
    But there are nights that I have trouble going to sleep
    
    Sweet sweet you're so sweet, so many things I want
    Sweet sweet you're so sweet, I wanna be a wonderful girl
    Sweet sweet you're so sweet, I'm not simple-minded
    Sweet sweet you're so sweet, and I won't be a pearl
    
    You probably need me just as much as I need you
    
    [Pf Solo]
    
    Are you okay you seem to be a little bit tense
    You don't have to worry 'bout a single thing
    We are free to get whatever that we want to have
    We're also free to do whatever we want
    That's what we'll do that's what we'll do
    We should live our lives the way we think it ought to be
    
    Sweet sweet you're so sweet, there's no where to hide
    Sweet sweet you're so sweet, come on settle our lives
    Sweet sweet you're so sweet, I'll always be there for you
    Sweet sweet you're so sweet, in the best and worst times
    
    You can be my sweetest honey for eternity
    
    Sweet sweet you're so sweet, so many things I want
    Sweet sweet you're so sweet, I wanna be a wonderful girl
    Sweet sweet you're so sweet, I'm not simple-minded

    11.6 Lazy Days (Livin' in Paradise) (Theme of Big) [LZD]
    ========================================================
    
    Oh, it's a windy and sunny day
    And I can hear the faint sound of the distant waves
    The past weeks have been going by so fast
    It's all the same, the bright sky and shining sun
    I have a feeling it's gonna be a fun day
    
    Oh, it's a windy and sunny day
    The many summers and many great games
    Guess it's another trouble-free day
    Our playground's so huge; we don't know where it ends
    Feels energetic and groovy
    Everything's cool, it's excellent
    
    Every day's a new beginning, yeah, we don't know who we're gonna meet
                                                                    today
    The more I want, the less I can get, keep walking for a new tomorrow
    But I guess that I'm happy now gonna set my heart free
    Now I've got nothing to worry me, Come on!
    Let's just get up go, go, go, go!

    ===========================================
    12.1 Game and Miscellaneous Questions [GMQ]
    ===========================================
    
    For all your game and miscellaneous needs.
    
    Q. What does FAQ stand for?
    A. Frequently Asked Questions.
    
    Q. What do I do next?
    A. Check the Adventure Walkthroughs.
    
    Q. How do I beat (insert stage here)?
    A. Check the Stage Walkthroughs.
    
    Q. I can't get Big's A Emblem in Twinkle Park! Help!
    A. Yeah, that emblem's a pain. First, make sure you have all the
       Fishing Lure Upgrades, then just FISH, dang it. There are metallic
       fish that weigh this much.
    
    Q. Why can't I get the emblem in the box on the Egg Carrier?
    A. That emblem seems to give people more trouble then every other
       emblem put together. I can't give any advice; if you can't get it
       the way I told you to do it, then I can't help you. Try posting a
       question about it on the Sonic Adventure DX Message Board on
       GameFAQS.com, someone there might be able to help you out.
    
    Q. Why can't I get this glitch to work?
    A. Well, you just may not be doing it right. Another possibility is
       that the glitch is exclusive to my copy of the game - unlikely, but
       it could happen.
    
    Q. Why is this section at the back, instead of the front?
    A. Well... this is just how I chose to do it. I wanna be different,
       man!
    
    Q. Why didn't you answer my email?
    A. Because I DO, unlike some people, have a life outside of the
       computer, and I don't have the time to personally answer emails. If
       you have a question, you can try emailing it to me (if it gets asked
       enough, I'll put it in this section) but your best bet is to post it
       on the Sonic Adventure DX Message Board on GameFAQs.com. Some nice
       person there will probably lend you a hand.
    
    Q. Do you make up these questions yourself?
    A. Some, yes. But not this one.
    
    =========================
    12.2 Chao Questions [CQS]
    =========================
    
    So cute, they got their own sub-section.
    
    Q. How do I pronounce "Chao"?
    A. Chow.
    
    Q. How can I name my Chao?
    A. Step on the Chao Transporter and chose name.
    
    Q. How many Chao can I have in each garden?
    A. 8.
    
    Q. How long is a Chao year?
    A. About three and a half hours.
    
    Q. Is there any way to make my Chao smarter?
    A. The mushrooms that you can buy at the Black Market can increase your
       Chao's intelligence.
    
    Q. How do I make my Chao wear a hat?
    A. If you give your Chao the right animals, it can wear the hat. I
       believe peacocks are the correct animals. There may be other animals
       as well - I'll try to figure it out and put it in a future update.
    
    Q. How do I remove my Chao's hat?
    A. Be patient, and it will eventually remove the hat. If you want, you
       can also throw your Chao to take the hat off, but I wouldn't
       recommend this method as it angers your Chao.
    
    More questions may (or may not) be coming soon.
