    1. Introduction
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Not too long ago, I started playing Sonic Adventure 
    DX once again.  This time, I had a new goal -- Metal 
    Sonic.  I was intent on collecting all 130 emblems, and 
    not too keen on getting them myself.  So I turned to 
    GameFAQs.  To my disappointment, the site contained 
    very few guides to the game, and several of them were 
    on the same subject.  I made it my NEW new goal to 
    make this guide so no others like me will be 
    disappointed when they visit this site!  I must note 
    however, that I wonít be covering the Action Stages.  
    The game tells you what to do.  Why would you 
    need any help?

    2. Adventure Fields
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Where better to start than the beginning of the game?  
    Nowhere. 
    
    
    ======================================
    2.1 Station Square
    ======================================
    
    The emblems in Station Square are extremely easy to 
    find.  
    --The first emblem is located in the train station and 
    can be obtained with Sonic.  From the second floor, 
    walk along the edge of the wall until you reach a 
    platform above the entrance.  There you will find the 
    emblem.
    --The second emblem is located in the casino area and 
    can be obtained with Tails.  From where you find the 
    Ice Stone, fly straight up and you should run into the 
    emblem.
    --The third emblem is located in the town hall area and 
    can be obtained with Sonic.  Enter the burger shop and 
    walk down the hall to find the emblem.  
    --The final emblem is located in the town hall area as 
    well and can be obtained with Tails.  Enter the town 
    hall gate and turn right, opposite the egg-shaped rock.  
    Use your tail attack (Idle+B) to cut down the grass.  
    The emblem is hidden in one of the grass patches.
    
    
    ======================================
    2.2 Mystic Ruins
    ======================================
    
    The emblems here are a little trickier than the previous 
    4, but are still very easy to find.
    --The first emblem is located in the train area and can 
    be obtained with Sonic.  From Tailsí workshop, look 
    left to see a cliff with the emblem sitting atop it. 
    Sonicís jump can only reach it with the momentum of 
    a Spindash.
    --The second emblem is located in the shrine area and 
    can be obtained with Knuckles.  Cross the bridge to 
    the shrine and turn left.  Head straight to the corner of 
    the land and face the tunnel leading into the area.  
    Glide in that general direction and you should see the 
    emblem floating in mid-air.
    --The third emblem is located in the jungle area and 
    can be obtained with Sonic.  Jump down the ladder 
    and follow the path to your immediate right.  You 
    should find the emblem resting against a fallen tree.
    --The final emblem is located in the jungle area as well 
    and can be obtain with Tails.  Fly to the top of the 
    hollow tree at Bigís house and land inside.  The 
    emblem should be resting at the bottom.  Tails must 
    rest at each stump on the side of the tree to reach the 
    top. 
    
    
    ======================================
    2.3 Egg Carrier
    ======================================
    
    These emblems are by far the hardest to find, but are 
    still pretty easy.
    --The first emblem is located on the deck and can be 
    obtained as Sonic.  The Egg Carrier must be in battle 
    mode.  Head to the platform where you fought Chaos 
    6.  Enter the cannon farthest from the deck.  The 
    emblem should be in the crate you hit.
    --The second emblem is located on the deck as well 
    and can be obtained as Tails.  The Egg Carrier must be 
    in battle mode.  Climb atop the bridge and fly up to the 
    large circular platform.  NOT the one where you 
    fought Chaos 6.  The emblem should be resting in the 
    centre.  The platform can be reached in normal mode, 
    but the emblem will not appear.
    --The third emblem is located in the pool room and 
    can be obtained as Tails.  Fly up to the platform above 
    the far end of the room, opposite the Hot Shelter 
    entrance.  The emblem should be resting on it.
    --The final emblem is located in the captains quarters 
    and can be obtained as Sonic.  Enter Eggmanís 
    bedroom and press the switch to reveal his bed.  The 
    emblem should be on the wall behind it.

    3. Sub Games
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    These games have 2 emblems available, but the first is 
    usually obtained in the Adventure mode, so weíre 
    halfway done.
    
    
    ======================================
    3.1 Sky Chase
    ======================================
    
    This is a very difficult game and takes a lot of practice.  
    To get act 1ís emblem you must beat 8000 points, and 
    to get act 2ís you must beat (roughly) 22250 points.  
    There arenít many good strategies for this but there are 
    a few.  Normally you would just point and shoot, but 
    by holding the fire button (B) you can lock on to 
    enemies and fire homing lasers.  This is extremely 
    helpful when taking out clusters of enemies.  Target 
    and hit as much as you possibly can, and with practice 
    you should be able to get the high scores.  Note that in 
    act 2 there is a swarm of idle, spiked enemies beneath 
    the Egg Carrier.  These enemies can be targeted from 
    very early in the level, but do not, repeat NOT focus 
    on them until the end.  You will have plenty of 
    opportunities to attack them, so the jets are your main 
    priority.
    
    
    ======================================
    3.2 Sand Hill
    ======================================
    
    This game is relatively easy, but you can get screwed 
    up pretty badly if you arenít careful.  In this game, you 
    pass through gates to score points.  The more 
    consecutive gates you enter, the higher your score 
    multiplier is.  As you go down the hill, obstacles will 
    emerge from the sand.  Hitting them will throw you off 
    course, so try to avoid that.  Also try to avoid hitting 
    the speed boosters, because they can sometimes throw 
    you off course as well.  Try to find a straight path 
    through the gates and you should be able to easily win 
    it.  If youíre playing in Trial Mode, I suggest doing it 
    as Tails.  Sonicís course is harder.
    
    
    ======================================
    3.3 Twinkle Circuit
    ======================================
    
    If you need a guide for this, then youíre doomed.  The 
    set record is 10 minutes and all you have to do is beat 
    it twice.  So on the first run you just have to do a bad 
    as possible, but still beat 10 minutes.  Then on the 
    second run just play like you normally would and 
    youíre done.
    
    
    ======================================
    3.4 Hedgehog Hammer
    ======================================
    
    This game isnít too hard, but try not to set the record 
    too high in Adventure mode, since thatís what youíll 
    have to beat in Trial mode.  The game isnít that 
    complicated, just hit the Sonics, not the Robotniks.  
    Iíve also done some tests, and it seems that Super 
    Sonics appear more frequently in Trial mode.  Itís a 
    piece of cake, so you shouldnít have too much trouble.
