    II - The Bosses
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    A - Chaos 0
    Difficulty: E Rank
    Number of Hits: 3
    Characters: Sonic; Tails(Cutscene); Knuckles(Cutscene)
    Chaos 0 acts as not only Sonic's first boss, but the first boss of the game
    overall. To defeat him, simply wait for him to rise out of his liquid state
    and homing attack his brain. After the second hit, he will jump on the poles.
    Simply jump to avoid them, and strike his brain one last time when he lands.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    B - Egg Hornet
    Difficulty: E Rank
    Number of Hits: 3
    Characters: Sonic; Tails
    Egg Hornet acts as the first boss for Tails, but the second boss for Sonic.
    As such, he's once again not hard, and may even be easier than Chaos 0.
    All you need do is avoid the missiles he shoots, wait for him to crash into
    the ground(Avoid this as it's an attack), and jump on his cockpit.
    Do note that for every hit, Eggman will add on another barrage of missiles.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    C - Chaos 2
    Difficulty: D Rank
    Number of Hits: 4
    Characters: Knuckles; Sonic(Cutscene); Tails(Cutscene)
    Knuckles' first boss is probaly the toughest of all the first bosses.
    Unlike Chaos 0, Chaos 2 is much more defensive. He will start by
    forming into a ball and bouncing across the room. Glide into him to
    possibly end his assault sooner. When in normal form, he will block
    Knuckles' punches. Wait for him to attack with his arm, then he
    can be punched. On his final hit, he may try to cover the floor
    in his liquid form. Simply glide above the arena until he stops.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    D - Chaos 4
    Difficulty: D Rank
    Number of Hits: 4(Tails); 5(Sonic & Knuckles)
    Characters: Sonic; Tails; Knuckles
    Chaos 4 is the first truly lengthy boss, with most battles with
    this form lasting over 2 minutes. The overall strategy is to
    keep moving, as despite the water being somewhat solid, standing
    in it for too long can drown you. Stand on the lilypads, though
    Chaos 4 will sink them if given enough time. When he pokes his
    head out of the water, that is when you strike. The more hits
    Chaos 4 takes, the more attacks he will pull off, ranging from
    an energy wave attack, an arm attack similar to Chaos 2, and
    splitting himself into 4 orbs that launch at you. Sonic can
    easily strike him with the homing attack, while Tails and Knuckles
    will have an easier time staying in the air with their flight abilities.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    E - E-100 Series Robots
    Difficulty: D Rank
    Number of Hits: Varies
    Characters: E-102 Gamma
    During the course of E-102 Gamma's story, he must set out to
    destroy his brethren, freeing the animals within them. For each
    robot, simply spam your laser blaster at them. Doing this, they
    rarely have an opportunity to strike back, except for E-105 Zeta
    who does not flinch. E-101 Beta is 3 hits, E-105 Zeta is 4 hits,
    while E-103 Delta and E-104 Epsilon are 5 hits.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    F - Chaos 6
    Difficulty: C Rank
    Number of Hits: 4
    Characters: Big; Sonic; Knuckles
    Chaos 6 is too powerful to attack directly. Instead, you must
    grab the ice eggs that are dropped onto the arena and toss them
    at Chaos 6, freezing him. While frozen, he can be attacked in any
    way, so feel free to be creative, as he's only 4 hits. The difficulty
    is high if you can't get to an ice egg in time, as Chaos 6 has some
    elaborate attacks, such a move where he turns into a plant that ejects
    tendrils all over the arena, ending in a tail swipe that targets a good
    third of the arena, and a quick tail attack that has little to no warning.
    With Big The Cat, simply cast your reel at the target reticule to rescue
    Froggy. The battle is then finished by Sonic in his story.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    G - E-101 Beta Mk II
    Difficulty: C Rank
    Number of Hits: 4
    Characters: E-102 Gamma
    E-101 Beta Mk II actually deviates from the norm in terms of bosses
    in E-102 Gamma's story. To deal damage, you must wait until
    Beta charges at you. Dodge to the side using your Jet Booster, and
    shoot its back. After a hit or two, Beta will start lobbing energy blasts
    at you from the sky. Run around the arena dodging the blasts, and
    Beta will drop down to charge at Gamma again.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    H - Zero
    Difficulty: C Rank
    Number of Hits: 3
    Characters: Amy; Sonic(Cutscene)
    Zero chases Amy throughout her levels. Here though, hammer at Zero
    until he's forced into the electrical barrier, where he will be stunned
    and reveal the weakspot on his head. The reason for the high difficulty
    rating is that Amy is slow, and Zero moves quick with his attacks.
    His attacks include a shockwave attack, and a move where he rotates
    his electrified arms around the arena.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    I - Egg Walker
    Difficulty: C Rank
    Number of Hits: 5
    Characters: Tails
    Eggman's second strongest mecha in Sonic Adventure, though it pales
    in comparison to Egg Viper. To defeat it, simply go under the cockpit
    and wait for the Egg Walker to finish its stomps. Hit all of the flashing
    buttons with your tail attack before Eggman can recover. Rinse, lather,
    repeat. Watch for bombs however, as the Egg Walker launches them
    periodically.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    J - Egg Viper
    Difficulty: B Rank
    Number of Hits: 7
    Characters: Sonic
    The strongest weapon in Eggman's arsenal, and Sonic must defeat it
    head on. Starting off, the Egg Viper will move around the arena,
    lobbing lasers at high speed. Keep Sonic running at high speed to
    avoid the lasers, but a periodic jump here and there won't hurt.
    After the first hit, Sonic will have to homing attack the sections
    on the Egg Viper's tail to get to the cockpit for more hits.
    After a few more hits, the Egg Viper will gain more attacks,
    including a move where it will toss spiky wheels at Sonic. You can
    land on one of them, ride it to the Egg Viper and homing attack
    the cockpit. After delivering the final hit, make sure to watch out
    as Eggman will attempt one last attack, which will destroy the section
    of flooring that Sonic was standing on.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    K - The Final Boss
    Difficulty: A Rank
    Number of Hits: 6(Technically 10, but attacks deal twice as much damage)
    Characters: Sonic
    To defeat the Final Boss, keep Sonic moving fast and collecting rings, as
    they will diminish over the the course of the battle. When Sonic reaches
    the Final Boss, make sure you're moving at full speed to deliver a hit.
    While the Final Boss' health bar advertises 5 hits, Sonic deals twice as
    much damage due to the method at which he hits the Final Boss.
    After 3 hits, the next phase begins. It's more or less like the first,
    except the Final Boss will attack more frequently and aggressive,
    making your rings deplete even faster. Another 3 hits and he's done.
