INTRODUCTION
==============================
Hello, and welcome to my very first FAQ. 
For the time that I have owned Sonic Riders, it has
always left me frustrated. 
The Story mode was tough, the Grand Prix was
tough,but nothing pissed me off 
like the Mission Mode. Maybe I was just a noobie
at it, but over time I 
eventually passed every single mission. However,
I yearned to get 100% perfect 
in the game, so I decided to get a gold medal
on every mission. I’ve seen many 
people needing information to get 
gold on the missions so that they can get 100% too, 
so I am writing this FAQ just to tell you how to get gold…not
bronze, not silver, but GOLD!!!


==============================
OVERVIEW
==============================
This FAQ generally talks about how to get a gold on each mission.
I am not going to bother to write about bronze or silver, for if 
you want to be perfect like me, you’ve gotta reach for the top! I will
post a brief description of the level, what needs to be done, then I’ll
tell you exactly how you achieve it. Sound good? Great! Let’s move on.


===============================
GENERAL TIPS
===============================
There are going to be some tricks you’re going to perform in 
order to get gold on these missions. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
DOING TRICKS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One of them is doing super jumps. To do a super jump, you
must hold down the jump button, either hold up or down, 
then release the jump button before the jump while still 
holding the analog stick in the direction you’ve had it in.
Sometimes, this will cause the character to fly really high
into the air to gain access to secret passages, and sometimes
in the missions, you MUST get to these secret passages in
order to get gold.

While describing the missions, I’ll simply use the terms:
Down Super, and
Up Super, 
to describe which direction your analog stick
must be in while doing the super jump.
At any time while you’re in the air, before you land,
you are given the chance to perform tricks. To do tricks,
you’ll need to rotate the analog stick in either the up,
down, left, or right position. For beginners, holding the
analog stick in the up position, will get you an ‘S’ ranking
at the most. In order to get rankings like ‘X’, you’ll need
to experiment on which direction you’re doing the trick.

For example: While in the air, you might want to hold up
for 2 tricks, then rotate the analog stick to the left,
then the right. Successfully doing that will get you an
‘X’, if not, then a ‘SS’ at the most.

The point system is as follows:

X = 10 points
SS = 8 points
S = 6 points
AA = 4 points
A = 2 points
B = 1 point
C = 0 points

For the missions where you must perform tricks,
getting an ‘X’, and ‘SS’ are usually required.
That is…if you want the gold.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
GRINDING
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Grinding is a very easy, and fun thing to do.
Whenever you come across a rail,
or a vine, with a blue light at the beginning
of it, you’ll need to jump,
then push the jump button again before you land, and away you go!

If there is another rail after the first one, simply jump,
then push the jump button again to 
land on the second rail and continue grinding.

If there is a rail adjacent (beside), the first rail you’ve
been one, simply jump off the first rail, move your character
towards the second rail, and push the jump button again, before
you land to continue grinding.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SMASHING OBJECTS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There will be times where you’ll have control of Knuckles,
and you’ll be required to smash objects. To do that, simply
get near a car, pillar, wall, and touch it. Knuckles will
automatically smash the object away, and it will give you air.

There will be times where getting 7 in a row is required to
finish the mission. To do this, simply get into the line
where the statues are placed, and before you smash the
first object, boost yourself, and you’ll fly all
through 7 of them in less than 3 seconds.


 

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
AIR RIDE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Air Ride is asked about a lot by people. To do Air Ride,
you simply ride off the ramp that’s right behind hovering
rings. You’ll glide all the way through the rings
smoothly. Sometimes you may need to maneuver yourself
through these rings, and to do so you:

Push up to go down, and
Push down to go up


+++++++++++++++++++++
Now that I’ve gotten all that covered, let’s move on to the missions,
from the 1st to the 100th.

 points before Storm appears
Difficulty: 7/10
To get gold: At least 30 points
How to: There are at least 6 places to do jumps.
 At the beginning of the level, you’ll need to do
 an Up Super jump to the higher platform. There
 is a platform before the tunnels where you can
 jump off of as well. After the tunnel, there
 are half pipes you can ride on to jump off of
 and perform tricks. At the end of the level, 
 there’s a jump where you’ll need to do a Down Super
 jump, then there’ll be another jump following that one.


Mission 2

Description: Collect 6 or more pieces of junk before Storm appears
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: The pieces of junk are very easy to see so
 I won’t display where every single one is. At
 the beginning, you’ll need to do an Up Super 
 jump to get the higher part of the plaza. The
 first Air Ride you’ll see, you’ll need to use
 it to get more pieces of junk. When you get 
 to the tunnels, use the right one. When you 
 get to the half pipe, you’ll need to time 
 your jump very well to jump off the half 
 pipe to the right to just barely land in the
 ring. Finally, at the last jump, you’ll need 
 to do a Down Super to get to the higher platform.


Mission 3

Description: There are many overturned cars on the track.
 Reach the goal in 60 seconds to get back at Jet and his band.

To get gold: I achieved a time of 0’50”75
How to: The cars are very easy to avoid if you know
 what you’re doing. At the beginning, do an Up Super

 before Storm appears
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: At least 22 points
How to: There are at least 4 jumps in this level. 
 The first jump is at the beginning before you get 
 into the water. Charge your jump, then release before
 you get into the water to perform tricks. The second

 After the waterfall, you’ll see a big steering wheel
 thing that belongs to a ship, that you can jump off
 of too. Near the end, you can do a Down Super jump 
to get a lot of air, and ride the rainbow.

Mission 2

Description: Collect 6 or more pieces of junk before Storm appears
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: All 12 junk pieces
How to: The junks are easy to see again. Collect
 the junk at the beginning of the level and grind
 the first rail you see. At the second jump, do an
 Up Super, to go to the higher platform to get more
 junk. At the next rail, jump off the steering wheel
 thing and grind the rail. Jump to the next rail to
 get more junk. At the last jump, do a Down Super to

Mission 3

Description: Reach the goal in 60 seconds. Knock away
any obstacles in your path!
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0’48”98
How to: Boost, boost, and boost! Whenever you see
 objects to be smashed (the barrels) smash them 
 for air, and boost some more. At the second jump,
 do an Up Super to get to the higher platform to 
 destroy more barrels. After the waterfall, use 
 Knuckles’ shortcut. At the last jump, do a Down 
 Super to ride the rainbow to get a nice slide 
 down to the finish line.


Mission 4

Description: Use Air Ride to pass through 6 or 
 more Rings and reach the goal before Storm appears
Difficulty: 5/10

 Jump off of that, and Air Ride through some more
 rings. Afterwards, race to the finish.


Mission 5

Description: Do over 6 grinds to get the treasure before Storm appears
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: Grind 11 rails
How to: The rails are very straight forward.
 Grind the first rail at the beginning and

 be cautious though, if you miss one rail, 
 you’re almost guaranteed to miss the others.

~~~~~
Egg Factory
~~~~~

Mission 1

Description: Perform tricks to get 14 or more points
 to show off your technique
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: At least 30 points
How to: There are at least 5 jumps in this level. 
 Do a Down Super at the first jump to get a lot of air.
 There’s a platform where you can jump off of, before
 you land to the lower area. Jump off of that and 
  perform tricks. The next jump just do a charged jump
 and perform more tricks. Near where the lava waterfall
 is, there’s a half pipe where you can jump off of and
 perform tricks. Finally, the last jump, do a Down Super
 to get lots of air.


Mission 2

Description: Collect 6 or more pieces of junk before Storm appears
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: Near the beginning of the level there is
 a piece of junk to be collected. Right after you
 do that, charge a jump and jump off of the platform
 to hit on of the Rings in the air, to Air Ride and
 gather another piece of junk. When you come to the
 next jump, do an Up Super, to get to the higher platform
 where there are more pieces of junk. There will be an
 Air Ride ramp to fly off of soon, so use it to get more junk.


Mission 3

Description: Evade the monitoring robots and reach
 the goal in 65 seconds.
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0’51”68
How to: You’ll need to get high jumps and boost
 a lot in this mission. At the first jump do a
 Down Super to get lots of air. Use the track
 boosts to your advantage as well. At the third
 jump, do an Up Super to get to the higher 
 platform to evade more robots. Where you 
 come to the half pipe, jump up and grind 
 on the rails to the last jump. Evade the 
 purple robots and quickly boost yourself to the finish.


Mission 4

Description: The surveillance robots have gone
 totally out of control. Destroy 9 ore more to stop the chaos!
Difficulty: 7/10
To get gold: Smash 15 robots
How to: The robots are very hard to get so
 pay attention and be cautious. At the beginning,
 there’ll be a robot. After the second jump, 
 there’ll be a robot on the ground, and two others
 scurrying around. Do an Up Super at the third
 jump to get more robots. Near the lava waterfall,
 use Knuckles’ shortcut to get more robots. 
 When you get near the last jump, DO NOT use it.
 Instead run into a wall, that has a broken sign
 over it, and you’ll go into a secret passage.
 There’ll be robots inside there as well, so
 be sure to get them. Afterwards, boost your butt to the end.


Mission 5

Description: Get the treasure that the robot has before Storm appears
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0’19”36
How to: At the beginning, do a Down Super jump
 to land on the ground faster. After, use 
 the track boosts to your advantage and boost
 whenever you see objects to be destroyed. 
 Be fast, and boost a lot, and do not miss the robot if you pass him.

~~~~~
Green Cave
~~~~~


Mission 1

Description: Perform tricks to get 12 or
 more points and split before Storm appears.
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: At least 26 points
How to: There are 4 jumps in this mission, 
 so it’s a bit tricky. At the first jump, do
 a Down Super to get a lot of air; you can 
 easily achieve an ‘X’ ranking from this. After
 you ride the centipede, there’s a half pipe 
 that comes up which you can use. If you’re fast
 enough, you can use the half pipe twice to get
 points. The third jump, do a Down Super to get
 a lot of air and achieve an ‘X’ rank. Finally 
 at the last jump, do a charged jump and perform
 your last set of tricks.


Mission 2

Description: Collect 6 or more pieces of junk before Storm appears
Difficulty: 7/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: The first 3 pieces of junk are very
 easy to collect. Follow the 3rd piece, and
 punch through the sign to get more junk. 
 After, go on the right side to ride the 
 giant vine to collect another piece of junk.
 After you ride the centipede, there are 3
 more pieces of junk to collect. At the 3rd
 one, quickly turn into the sign to blast 
 it away, and get your 10th piece of junk.
 At the 3rd jump, do a Down Super to go 
 really high and land in the spider webs 
 that’ll get you more junk.


Mission 3

Description: Go as far into the forest as you
 can before Storm appears and reach the goral in 65 seconds
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0’54”65
How to: Boost whenever you can. At the first
 jump, do a Down Super jump to get a lot of
 air and to land faster. The giant grapes 
 are very easy to dodge, so don’t worry about
 them. When you get to the giant vines, go 
 in the middle to ride off an Air Ride ramp 
 to travel through Rings. Near where you get
 to the half pipe, you may want to jump off
 of it and into more Rings which you can travel
 through. Finally, at the 3rd jump, do a Down
 Super jump to land in the spider webs.


Mission 4

Description: There is a route where you can go
 down. Do 4 more grinds so Storm’s work goes to waste.
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: Grind 8 times
How to: At the first jump, do an Up Super
 jump and land on the rail that’s very high
 in the air. Transfer to the other rails on 
 the way. When you get to the part with the 
 giant vines, you’ll see a “Speed” sign. Go
 over there, and you’ll see a small jump which
 you can jump off of and land on the rail.
 Near the half pipe, there are several rails 
here. You’ll need to do 2 transfers, so watch
 out for the other rails.


Mission 5

Description: Use Air Ride 19 times or more to
 get the treasure before Storm appears
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: Air Ride through at least 33 Rings
How to: Using Air Ride at least 33 times is 
 quite tricky to do at first, so it may require
 a few tries to do this one. At the first 
 jump, do an Up Super to go really high, to
 land in the Ring. Air Ride through all the
 Rings very carefully, until you come to the
 part after the centipede. Oh, and don’t forget
 to pick up the treasure on the way too. If 
 you really want to use Air Ride more, there’s
 more Rings to be ridden through at the half
 pipe. The maximum of Rings in this level is actually 36.

~~~~~
Sand Ruins
~~~~~

Mission 1

Description: Perform tricks to get 13 or
 more points to excite the crows before Storm catches up
Difficulty: 10/10
To get gold: Get 34 points
How to: This is possibly THE hardest mission
 in the entire game. So don’t put yourself 
 down, if you can’t do it the first, or second
 time. There are 5 jumps in this level, 
 so use them well. At the first jump do a
 Down Super jump to get a lot of air, and
 achieve an ‘X’. Near the part where the 
 pillars fall down, you can jump off of one
 of them to perform tricks. Try to get a 
 ‘AA’ here. After that, there’ll be another
 jump which you can use, so charge your jump
 and let go to get enough air to possibly make 
 a ‘SS’ at the very least. After, go to the 
 left side of the ruins, and grind the rail. 
 Then transfer yourself to the rail on the 
 left, and transfer yourself to the rail on
 the right. To do the last transfer, jump 
 just before the second rail starts descending.
 You’ll be on top of another platform now, so
 do an Up Super jump to get transferred to 
 another platform. Just before you fall off of
 the platform, you can execute the final jump.
 You NEED to use all these jumps if you want to get
 the gold.


Mission 2

Description: Collect 6 or more pieces of junk
 before Storm appears
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: At the beginning, bank to the 
 right of the dunes to get 2 pieces of 
 junk. After the first jump, go on the 
 rail that’s to the left. Transfer to the
 second rail that’s at the top. Collect 
 more junk until you’re in the ruins, where
 you’ll have to do the 3 rail transfer I
 talked about in the first mission. Collect
 another piece of junk there. At the end 
 where you’re put on a giant bow, make sure
 the bow is stretched back all the way, so
 you’ll fly up and collect the final piece
 of junk before you finish.


Mission 3

Description: Reach the goal in 65 seconds.
 Knock away any obstacles in your path!
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0’54”08
How to: At the beginning of the level,
 go straight through the middle of the
 sand dunes to use Knuckles’ shortcut.
 At the first jump, do a Down Super to
 get lots of air, and to land faster. 
 Use the track boosts whenever possible.
 When you see a line of statues boost 
 right before you hit the first one so 
 you can gain back the lost air. Remember
 to boost a lot, and with time, you’ll get gold.


Mission 4

Description: Use Air Ride to pass through
 8 or more Rings and reach the goal before Storm appears
Difficulty: 2/10
To get gold: Air Ride through 15 Rings
How to: Finally, an easy mission. After
 the first jump you’ll come across a 
 ramp you can ride off of to start Air
 Riding through Rings. The first Ring
 can easily be missed so watch out. 
 When you’re in the ruins, go to the 
 right, and you’ll see a ramp there. Air
 Ride through more Rings and ride your 
 way to the finish.


Mission 5

Description: Destroy 7 stone statues in
 a row to uncover the hidden treasure before Storm appears
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: Destroy the first 7 statues you see
How to: This is a little tricky to do, 
 so have patience. When you get to the 
 first 3 statues, boost your way into them,
 then quickly turn to the left to destroy
 another 3 statues. Just right after you
 destroy the last statue, boost again to
 destroy the final two. Your time will be
 around 6 seconds if you do it right.

~~~~~
Babylon Garden
~~~~~


Mission 1

Description: Perform tricks to get 12 or
 more points and split before Storm appears
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: Get at least 24 points
How to: There are 4 jumps in this mission.
 At the first jump, do a Down Super to 
 get lots of air. You’ll come across a 
 half pipe soon, so do a jump off of there.
 When you get to the next jump, do an Up
 Super to get lots of air. At the final
 jump, do a Down Super to get lots of air.


Mission 2

Description: Collect 6 or more pieces of
 junk before Storm appears
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: The first couple pieces of junk
 are easy to come across. When you get
 to the Air Ride ramp, use it to get more
 junk. After the part where the jet drops
 you off, there’ll be more pieces of junk 
 up ahead. Keep your eyes peeled for a Ring
 because you’ll need to do a basic jump to
 get into it. This Ring is hard to miss the 
 first couple times. Finally, at the last jump,
 do a Down Super to get the last piece of junk.


Mission 3

Description: Avoid the obstacles and reach the goral in
 75 seconds
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 1’03”18
How to: The challenge in this one isn’t
 avoiding the obstacles, but getting to
 the finish line fast. At the beginning
 the obstacles are a joke, so swerve through
 them. Jump off of the half pipe and grind
 the rail when you see it. After the part
 where the jet drops you off, make sure you
 get the rail you see ahead. Time the jump
 just right to grind the rail. Now the obstacles
 are starting to mean business. Swerve through
 them without getting hit and take the jump 
 that’s near. The last turn is the hardest turn,
 so do your best there too. Do a Down Super
 jump at the end to get a track boost to the
 finish line.


Mission 4

Description: Smash 9 or more objects to make Storm’s
 work go to waste
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: Smash 15 objects
How to: The objects are very hard to miss
 when seeing them, but they’re hard to miss
 when actually getting to them. Along the 
 track, you’ll see multiple objects that need
 to be smashed. With practice you’ll get all
 of them. At the last jump however, do a Down 
 Super jump to reach the higher platform and 
 you’ll get to the last object.


Mission 5

Description: Grind 6 or more times to get the
 treasure before Storm appears
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: Grind 12 times
How to: All the grinds are hard to miss, but
 some of them are quite tricky to transfer to.
 Near the end though, you’ll come across a 
 rail that wraps around a building. To get to 
 it, you need to jump off the first rail just
 before it turns then jump onto the next rail
 to get the treasure. The rest is easy from there.

Digital Dimension
~~~~~


Mission 1

Description: Perform tricks to get 12 or
 more points and split before Storm catches up
Difficulty: 7/10
To get gold: Get at least 24 points
How to: There are 4 jumps you can use
 in this mission. The first jump is obvious,
 so do an Up Super jump when you get there.
 When you get to the heaven area, grind on 
 the first rail you see, but don’t grind on 
 the second rail. Instead, charge a jump and
 jump right before the end of the platform.
 Do the same thing when you get to the next
 platform. Finally, and the last jump, do a
 Down Super jump to get lots of air.


Mission 2

Description: Collect 6 or more pieces of junk before 
Storm appears
Difficulty: 2/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: The pieces of junk are very hard
 to miss, you can easily get them, even
 if you didn’t try. Collect the first 
 piece of junk at the beginning, and do 
 an Up Super jump at the first jump. Collect
 the junk on the way until you get past 
 the heaven part. Go into the middle to 
 smash away objects to collect the junk. 
 The remaining junk is after the last jump.


Mission 3

Description: Reach the goal in 75 seconds or
 less, before Storm appears
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0’58”91
How to: You’re Tails in this mission so 
 that means you’ll have to use Air Ride. 
 The statues are easy to avoid at the beginning
 so don’t worry. You can’t do an Up Super 
 at the beginning, but oh well. While you’re
 on the lower level, try not to go too close
 to the chasm, because you could get pulled
 in by the hands. When you get into the heaven
 part, swerve to the left and you’ll see a 
 ramp you can go off of to use Air Ride. After
 the heaven switches, go all the way to the
 right and use another Air Ride ramp to go 
 through more rings. Finally, at the last 
 jump, do a Down Super jump to get lotsa air.


Mission 4

Description: Traps in sub-space? Get past
 these obstacles by doing 5 or more grinds
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: Grind 10 times
How to: The first rail is hard to miss.
 Make the first jump to go on the first
 rail and to the second. Once in the heaven
 area, grind on the rails there. The rails
 are a bit tricky to transfer on, but you’ll
 get the hang of it eventually. When the 
 heaven part switches to the next part, you’ll 
 have to transfer rails almost immediately.
 So be careful.


Mission 5

Description: Destroy 7 stone statues in
 a row while in sub-space to uncover the
 hidden treasure before Storm appears
Difficulty: 3/10
To get gold: Destroy the first 7 statues you see
How to: Like the other mission that was like
 this, the way to get gold is still the same,
 and same concept. When you see the first 3 
 statues, don’t boost, but boost after that, 
 when you come across the 4 statues that are in
 a row. After, just get the last statue standing.
 Easy enough.

~~~~~
SEGA CARNIVAL
~~~~~


Mission 1

Description: Perform tricks to get 16 or
 more points to excite the crowd and split
 before Storm catches up
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: Get at least 36 points
How to: There are 8 - 9 jumps in this mission.
 Plenty to get the points you need. At the beginning
 of the level, you can jump off the platform you’re
 on, so do so. The next jump, do an Up Super jump
 to try and get to the top level. If you don’t make
 it to the top, there’s a half pipe at the bottom
 level which you can perform a trick on. Once you’re
 in the Monkey Ball part of the stage, there are
 several platforms here. At the end of each one,
 you can perform a jump and do tricks. If you fall
 off the platforms, there’s a half pipe underneath
 for you to perform tricks on as well. On the 
 final jump, just do a regular charged jump and
 get tricks by doing that.

Mission 2
Description: Collect 6 or more pieces of junk before
 Storm gets one
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: At the beginning, do a Down Super jump to get
 the first piece of junk, then get all the others on
 the way. When you get to the lower part of the ship,
 get to the half pipe, and jump off of it to get into
 the Ring. Right after the NiGHTS section, jump off
 the platform you’re on and go into the Ring that’s
 there. Afterwards, the pieces of junk are easy to find.

Mission 3
Description: Reach the goal in 70 seconds so
 Storm’s work goes to waste
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0’56”46
How to: Again, it’s not about avoiding the
 obstacles, but getting the finish fast. At
 the beginning, jump off the platform to get
 on the rail, and go to the second. After the
 rails, do an Up Super jump to try and get to
 the upper part of the ship. When you have reached
 the Monkey Ball section, try to jump from 
 platform to platform instead of falling off.
 Then at the last jump, do a Down Super jump 
 to get to the higher platform. If you have done
 all this, then you are quite guaranteed a 
gold or a silver at the very least.

Mission 4
Description: Smash 9 or more objects to reduce Storm’s morale
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: Smash 15 objects
How to: Smashing the objects is easy to do,
 it’s getting it done quickly which is hard.
 Follow the usual route and smash the barrels
 on the way. Remember to boost whenever 
 possible. When you get to the Monkey Ball
 section, stay on all of the platforms ‘till
 you get to the last one, because there’s a
 barrel there. And no, smashing the bowling
 pins don’t count.

Mission 5
Description: Use Air Ride 28 or more times to
 get the treasure before Storm appears
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: Use Air Ride 35 times
How to: At the beginning, use a Down Super
 jump to get to the first Ring. From there,
 it’s easy sailing…or so you’d like to think.
 Maneuvering through the Rings is quite tricky
 to do. I’ve failed the first 5 times on this,
 so it takes a bit of practice to do.

~~~~~
Night Chase
~~~~~

Mission 1

Description: Perform tricks to get 14 or more points before Wave 
 catches up.
Difficulty: 7/10
To get gold: Get at least 24 points
How to: Yay for Cream! I personally like using her in races, so this
 makes me happy. Anyways, there are 5 jumps in this level. At the first
 jump do a regular charged jump and do tricks. Take the left tunnel
 when you get to the tunnels to avoid the cars. Once you get to the
 half pipe, do tricks off of that. Just like Metal City, at the last
 jump, do a Down Super to get really high, and follow up with the
 last jump afterwards.

Mission 2

Description: Collect 8 or more pieces of junk before Wave appears
Difficulty: 7/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: At the first jump, do an Up Super to get to the higher platform
 Stay to the left to get more junk. Once you get to the next track
 boost, stay as far to the left as possible. Use the right tunnel
 once you get there. Get the next piece of junk that's in the middle
 of the road then quickly get to the half pipe, so you can jump off of
 it to Air Ride in the Rings. Finally more junk pieces on the way,
 look out for the bombs, and at the last jump do a Down Super to get
 to the higher platform and get the another piece of junk. At the final
 jump, do another Down Super jump to get the last piece of junk.

Mission 3

 and reach the goal within 60 seconds.
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0'47"50
How to: At the first jump, do an Up Super jump to get to the higher
 platform. Carefully weave through the cars and go through the right 
 tunnel. You'll soon see an open truck with a little platform. Quickly
 charge a jump and jump off of the slanted platform to fly in the air
 and to quickly start grinding on a rail there. The cars are easy to 
 avoid to the end. Again, do a Down Super jump at the last one.

Mission 4

Description: Knock away 9 or more police cars to force Wave to change
 her plan.
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: Smash at least 15 cars
How to: When you do the first jump bnk to the right to hit some police 
 cars. While you're on the road, hit all the moving police cars you 
 can see. Go through the right tunnel when you get there and use
 Knuckles' shortcut. The rest of the police cars are easy to see until
 the end.

Mission 5

Description: Be clever with your gear! Try to keep your speed over 140
 as you head toward to goal!
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0'47"88
How to: The track boosts on this level helps a whole lot, so use them
 whenever you see them. Try to avoid the bombs as well. All there is to
 this mission is to, do an Up Super jump at the first jump, use the 
 right tunnel when you get there, and do a Down Super jump once you get
 to the last jump.

~~~~~
Red Canyon
~~~~~

Mission 1

Description: Perform tricks to get 12 or more points to excite the 
 crowd before Wave cathes up
Difficulty: 8/10
To get gold: Get at least 18 points
How to: There are only 3 jumps in this mission, which sucks a whole 
 lot. So you need to do super good on the three jumps if you want a 
 gold. At the first jump, do a regular charged jump and do tricks. When
 you get to the giant steering wheel thing, jump off of that and get
 points. At the last jump, do a regular charged jump again and get
 points. As long as you get 2 'SS's, you'll be in the green.

Mission 2

Description: Collect 8 or more pieces of junk before Wave appears
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: The pieces of junk are very clear to see, so grab them on your
 way through the course. After the first jump, grind the rail to get
 2 more pieces of junk. After the waterfall, grind the rail to get more
 pieces of junk. Finally, at the last jump, do a Down Super jump to get
 to the higher platform to get another piece of junk. When you go 
 through the waterfall, stay to your right to your right so you can 
 slide down the water to get to the last piece of junk easily.

Mission 3

Description: Reach the goal in 65 seconds. Knock away any obstacles
 in your path!
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0'56"53
How to: Smash all the objects you can in this missin and boost whenever
 you do. Do an Up Super jump at the first jump to get to the higher 
 platform. After the waterfall, use Knuckles' shortcut as well. At the
 last jump, do a Down Super to get to the higher platform, and stay
 to the right to slide down the water. Remember to watch your air!

Mission 4

Description: Use Air Ride to pass thorugh 8 or more Rings and reach the
 goal
Difficulty: 3/10
To get gold: Air Ride 15 times
How to: This mission has a lot of smooth sailing through here. The only
 challenge is to jump off of the steering wheel at the right time to
 land in one of the Rings. Don't forget that there's an Air Ride ramp
 near the beginning of the platform.

Mission 5

Description: Reach the goal with over half of your Air left
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: Have at least 180 Air when you cross the finish line
How to: This is the first mission like this, so it's going to be tough
 at first. With Tails, get the Air capsule at the beginning of the 
 level. Try not to air slide around this corner. Do a charged jump at
 the first jump and get a lot of Air. Ride off of the Air Ride ramp to
 fly through more Rings to get more Air. Avoid the bombs at all costs.
 Once you get to the waterfall, rotate the control stick AS MUCH AS 
 POSSIBLE! After that, jump off of the steering wheel, and Air Ride
 through the Rings. Use Tails' shortcut to ride off another ramp to 
 sail through Rings. At the last jump do a charged jump and get more 
 Air. Stay at your right to slide down the water. Remember, on this 
 mission and more like it ahead, DO NOT, and I repeat, DO NOT BOOST!!!

Ice Factory
~~~~~

Mission 1

Description: Perform tricks to get 18 or more points to show off your
 techniques
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: Get at least 30 points
How to: There are 6 jumps in this mission. At the first jump, do a Down
 Super jump to get lots of air. You'll land on a platform which you can 
 jump off of at the end of it. At the next jump, do a charged jump to
 get some air as well. You'll soon see a half pipe ahead of you. Use
 that half pipe, to jump off of and ride into the Rings ahead. Soon
 enough, you'll come across yet another half pipe. Do tricks off of 
 that. At the last jump, do an Up Super jump to get lots of air. This
 shouldn't be too difficult, once you get the hang of it.

Mission 2

Description: Collect 8 or more pieces of junk before Wave appears
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: At the first jump do a Down Super jump to get that floating
 piece of junk that's way up there. I reccomend to jump over the first
 track boost to easily get the piece of junk that's around the corner.
 After the next jump, use the half pipe to use Tails' shortcut to get
 more junk. Collect more junk on the way until you get to another half
 pipe. Use Tails' shorcut again to get more junk. There's more junk
 on the way to the finish, so gather those.

Mission 3

Description: Evade the monitoring robots and reach the goal in 75
 seconds
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 1'02"36
How to: Try not to get hit by the robots. That's the obvious part. Now
 at the beginning, do a Down Super jump to get lots of air, and stay
 to the left. Jump off of the platform and grind the rail to the next
 jump. At the next jump do another Down Super jump to get to the higher
 platform. Conserve your boosts! When you get to the half pipe part
 again, stay to the right, so you can jump off of a pipe and land on 
 another railing. At the last jump, do an Up Super jump to get lotsa
 air. NOW boost to the finish.

Mission 4

Description: The surveillance robots have fone totally our of control.
 Destroy 9 or more to stop the chaos!
Difficulty: 7/10
To get gold: Destroy 15 robots
How to: Try not to worry about how long you take, just carefully take
 out every single robot you see. Use Knuckles' shortcut near the giant
 fan, and take out more robots. When you get to the next turning point
 sharp turn IMMEDIATELY to gain access to Knuckles' seconds shortcut.
 Finally, take out the remaning robots and reach the goal.

Mission 5

Description: A bunch of Rings have just appeared. Collect 50 or more 
 Rings, then reach the goal
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: Collect at least 70 Rings
How to: This is your first mission like this, but don't worry, there
 are PLENTY of Rings to collect in this mission. It may take a few 
 tries to get gold, but you'll eventually get it. The only suggestions
 I can give is, take ALL the track boosts you can, whenever you see a 
 line of Rings, STAY ON THAT LINE, and at the third jump, do a Down 
 Super jump to get to the higher platform.

~~~~~
White Cave
~~~~~

Mission 1

Description: Perform tricks to get 14 or more points and split before
 WAve appears
Difficulty: 3/10
To get gold: Get at least 22 points
How to: There are 3 jumps in this mission, but don't distress, they 
 give you LOTS of air. At the first jump, do an Up Super jump. There
 isn't going to be a jump until the end of the course, but when you get
 there, do a Down Super jump, and at the last jump, do another Down
 Super jump. 

Mission 2

Description: Collect 8 or more pieces of junk before Wave appears
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: The pieces of junk are easy to see, so collect the junk on the
 way until you get to the part after the centipede drops you off. Bust
 through the sign when you see it, to go through it and get more junk.
 You'll get the last pieces of junk near the end.

Mission 3

Description: Go as far into the forest as you can before Wave appears
 and reach the goal in 60 seconds
Difficulty: 3/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0'48"18
How to: The obstacles and bombs are rediculously easy to avoid, so 
 don't even worry about them. Do an Up Super jump at the first jump, 
 and use the track boosts whenever possible. Use Tails' shortcuts as 
 well. You may boost yourself, whenever you get the chance. When you 
 get to the second to last jump, do a Down Super to land in the spider
 webs and launch yourself to the finish line.

Mission 4

Description: There is a route where you can go down. Do 4 or more 
 grinds so Wave's work goes to waste
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: Grind 8 times
How to: At the beginning of the level, do an Up Super jump to get
 really high, so you may land on the first rail. Transfering from rail
 to rail may be tricky at first, but you'll get the hang of it. After
 the centipede drops you off, find another rail that needs to be 
 ridden. Be careful, for the next rail is tricky to transfer to. 
 Afterwards, get yourself to the finish.

Mission 5

Description: Fight with Wave! Hit her with 1 or more attacks and reach
 the goal before she does
Difficuly: 5/10
To get gold: Hit Wave at least 3 times
How to: This mission is a little different from the others, but be 
 aware of one thing...THE AI IS VERY, VERY, STUPID! Don't let the 
 computer intimidate you. You can EASILY win the race, even if you 
 didn't try. On the other hand, you must hit Wave 3 times. First, let
 Wave get a head start, then follow behind her. Boost up to her to 
 attack her once. Purposely slow down, so she can get ahead of you
 so you can boost up to her and attack her once more. Do this one more
 time, and get to the finish line.

~~~~~
Dark Desert
~~~~~

Mission 1

Description: Perform tricks to get 14 or more points to excite the
 crowd before Wave catches up
Difficulty: 9/10
To get gold: Get at least 28 points
How to: There are 7 jumps in this mission and you must use them ALL!
 At the first jump, you can do any charged jump you want, you'll get
 lots of air, either way. On the way down, you'll come across three
 platforms which you land on. You can jump off of these platforms
 and perform tricks. When you get into the ruins, do not use Air Ride,
 instead, use the jumps that are there and perform tricks off of them.
 This is a very difficult mission, even if you try really hard, you
 still may end up with a silver medal at the end, but keep trying and
 you'll eventually get the gold.

Mission 2

Description: Collect 8 or more pieces of junk before Wave appears
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: At the first jump, do an Up Super to get the first pieces of
 junk. The next pieces of junk as you can see, are suspended in the air
 meaning that you must jump off of the next few platforms to get to 
 them. Try and avoid the bombs too. Once in the ruins, stay in the
 middle, and grind the rail to get another piece of junk. After you're
 teleported out, grind the last two rails to get more junk. The last 
 few pieces are quite easy to spot.

Mission 3

Description: Reach the goal in 70 seconds. Knock away any obstacles in
 your path!
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0'56"88
How to: Do an Up Super jump at the beginning to get lots of air. Smash
 any objects that you see and boost when you do. once in the ruins
 stay to your left, and smash/boost your way through. After you've 
 been teleported, follow the obstacles to Knuckles' shortcut and 
 boost your way to the goal.

Mission 4

Description: Use Air Ride to pass through 7 or more Rings and reach the
 goal before Wave appears
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: Air Ride 15 times
How to: After the first jump, jump off of the platform and land in a
 Ring to start Air Riding. You may have to maneuver yourself carefully
 through here. After, get in the ruins and take the path to the right.
 There, you'll see an Air Ride ramp to ride off of. Take it and sail 
 through the ruins. After you've been teleported, you'll see another 
 ramp. Ride off of that, and get yourself thorugh the last set of
 Rings.

Mission 5

Description: A bunch of Rings have just appeared. Collect 50 or more
 Rings, then reach the goal
Difficulty: 3/10
To get gold: Get at least 70 Rings
How to: The Rings are hard to miss. Like I've mentioned before in this
 guide, when you see a line of Rings, stay on the line! Use the track
 boosts whenever possible, and follow the line of Rings it lets you 
 on.

~~~~~
Sky Road
~~~~~

Mission 1

Description: Perform tricks to get 16 or more points and split before
 Wave appears
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: Get at least 30 points
How to: There are 5 - 6 jumps in this mission. At the first jump, do a
 Down Super jump to get lots of air and perform tricks. At the next
 jump, do not be intimidated by the bombs, instead do an Up Super jump
 and do more tricks. Quickly turn around the corner, and charge your
 jump. Go off the platform, and get more points. Once you turn the 
 next corner, you'll see a ramp that lead's to Cream's shortcut. DO NOT
 take this ramp! Instead, go around it, and take the next ramp that's
 up ahead. At the last jump, do a Down Super jump and collect more 
 points.

Mission 2

Description: Collect 8 or more pieces of junk before Wave appears
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: The pieces of junk are easy to see, yet again, so don't get
 worried about not being able to see them. One cautious note though,
 is to avoid the bombs at all costs. Getting hit by one of them could
 possibly slow you down so much, that even if you get all the pieces
 of junk, you wont be able to make it to the finish line in time. When
 you get to Tails' shortcut, jump off the ramp and fly through the 
 Rings. At the final jump, so a Down Super jump to get the final piece
 of junk.

Mission 3

Description: Avoid the obstacles and reach the goal in 65 seconds
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0'51"56
How to: Avoiding the obstacles are easy. What you need to worry about
 is getting to the goal in time. At the beginning, stay to your right
 and as you go off the jump, you'll see a rail. Land on it, and it'll 
 make the trip easier. Try to do an Up Super jump at the next jump too.
 When you get to Sonic's next rail, use it, and ride to the last jump
 where you'll do a Down Super jump to make life easier.

Mission 4

Description: Smash 9 or more objects to make Wave's work go to waste
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: Smash 15 objects
How to: The objects are very easy to see, as they are guarded by bombs.
 Easily swerve yourself through the bombs and smash the objects. There
 is no great strategy to this other than avoiding the bombs.

Mission 5

Description: Be clever with your gear! Try to keep your speed over 140
 as you head toward the goal!
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0'52"80
How to: In this mission, it is crucial that you use all the track 
 boosts there are. Smash any objects that you see, and boost at the 
 same time when you see them. Be sure to do a Down Super jump at the
 first jump, an Up Super jump at the second, and finally a Down Super
 jump at the last jump, in order to maintain your speed over 140.

Babylon Guardian
~~~~~

Mission 1

Description: Perform tricks to get 12 or more points and split before
 Wave appears
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: Get 20 points
How to: In this mission, there are only 2 jumps. Which means you MUST
 achieve an 'X' ranking off of both jumps. Do not worry about the 
 objects that are in your way, you can avoid them easily. At the first
 jump, do an Up Super jump and get an 'X'. At the last jump, do a Down
 Super jump and achieve an 'X'. Watch out for the bombs at the last 
 jump though.

Mission 2

Desctiption: Collect 8 or more pieces of junk
Difficulty: 3/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: The pieces of junk are made to look so obvious that it's 
 funny. Collect the pieces of junk on the track and be careful of the
 bombs. Just like before, do an Up Super jump at the first jump to get
 a piece of junk, and a Down Super jump at the last jump to get 
 another.

Mission 3

Description: Go as far as you can before Wave appears and reach the
 goal in 45 seconds
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0'36"81
How to: This mission is quite different, for you have to attack the
 Babylon Guardian once before you can even cross the finish line. On
 top of that, there are statues and bombs to avoid as well. This can be
 made easy if you follow the following. Get a good start and the 
 beginning and boost once. Swerve through the statues DO NOT go around 
 them. After you pass some more statues, boost once more and hit the
 Guardian. Afterwards, sharply turn around the corner and do an Up 
 Super jump to get to Rings in the air. Finally, get yourself to the
 final jump and do a Down Super jump to get lots of air, and boost
 yourself to the finish.

Mission 4

Description: Traps in sub-space? Get past these obstacles by doing 5
 or more grinds
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: Grind 10 times
How to: Jump on the first rail, and keep transfering to other rails.
 The difficult part in this, is the transfering. Some of the rails may
 be hard to transfer to. At the final jump, do a Down Super jump to get
 on the last rail.

Mission 5

Description: Reach the goal with over half of your Air left
Difficutly: 5/10
To get gold: Have at least 180 Air when you reach the goal

 some practice to do. Try to get all the air capsules in this course.
 At the first jump, do an Up Super jump, to get lots of air. Avoid the
 bombs at all costs, and grab more air capsules. At the final jump do
 a Down Super jump to get lots of air. Remember, DO NOT BOOST!!!

 Wave appears
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: Get at least 26 points
How to: There are 4 jumps in this mission. The first jump is off the
 platform you start on, so do a jump off of that. At the next jump do
 a charged jump to get lots of air. Once you get to the Space Channel 5
 area, there will be a half pipe. You can perform tricks twice on these
 pipes so do so. At the final jump do an Up Super jump to get lots of
 air and earn points.

Mission 2

Description: Collect 8 or more pieces of junk before Wave gets one
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: At the beginning, jump off of the platform to Air Ride through
 some Rings. Collect more junk on the way and watch out for the bombs.
 At the next jump do a Down Super jump to get more junk. Collect more
 junk on the way until you reach the Space Channel 5 area. Use the half
 pipe here to Air Ride through more Rings. At the last jump, do an Up
 Super jump to get another piece of junk. As you enter the Chu Chu 
 Rocket area, get on the RED arrow and it will guide you to 2 more 
 pieces of junk.

Mission 3

Description: Reach the goal in 75 seconds so Wave's work goes to waste
Difficulty: 7/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0'57"73
How to: At the first jump, do a charged jump off of it. Boost yourself
 to the track boosts, then after, boost some more. Get to the rail and
 grind it. After you get off the rail, do a Down Super jump to get to
 the higher platform. Boost your way to Space Channel 5, and get to the
 rail there, and grind it. Be careful not to fall in to the hole. At 
 the final jump, do an Up Super jump to get lots of air. Weave around
 the bombs to get on a GREEN arrow. Finally boost your way to the
 finish line.

Mission 4

Description: Smash 9 or more objects to reduce Wave's morale
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: Smash 15 objects
How to: The objects are easy to see, as they're big flying red things.
 Smash all the ones you can see. At the second jump do a Down Super
 jump to get to the higher platform. Smash more objects on the way 
 until you get to Space Channel 5. There, take the right most route
 and smash more objects. Once you get to the Chu Chu Rocket area, take
 the RED arrow, and smash down the last object.

Mission 5

Description: Fight with Wave! Hit her with 1 or more attacks and reach
 the goal before she does
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: Hit Wave at least 3 times
How to: Remember, the AI is as stupid as a piece of toast. As said
 before, let Wave get a head start, and boost up to her to attack her.
 Purposely slow down, and let Wave get ahead, boost, and attakc her
 once more. Do this one more time and get to the finish. The problem
 in this mission is that the computer tends to boost around corners
 so be sure to hit Wave before she gets a chance to do that.

==============================
Jet's Missions
==============================

~~~~~
EXTRA 1
~~~~~

Mission 1

Description: Jet is following you! Maintain a speed of at least 140
 to break away from him
Location: Metal City
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0'49"80
How to: Jet made me laugh a lot in this level. As long as you maintain
 a speed of at least 140, he will NEVER catch up to you. Use all the
 track boosts in this level, and boost yourself whenever possible.
 Also, at the first jump do an Up Super jump to get to the higher 
 platform. Jump off of other platforms as well, but NOT the half pipe.
 When you get to the last jump, do a Down Super jump to get really high
 and use the track boosts there to do another jump off of the final
 jump.

Mission 2

Description: Reach the goal with over half of your Air left
Location: Splash Canyon
Difficulty: 7/10
To get gold: Have at least 180 Air when you reach the goal
How to: This mission has a lot of bombs and obsticles in the way so
 be weary of them. You need to use all the jumps in this mission to 
 gain air, so do so. At the second jump, just use a regular charged 
 jump and gain air. At the waterfall, rotate your analog stick like
 crazy! After that, do not jump off of the steering wheel. Instead,
 use Tails' shortcut. At the last jump, do a Down Super jump to get
 really high.

Mission 3

Description: A bunch of Rings have just appeared. Collect 50 or more
 Rings, then reach the goal
Location: Egg Factory
Difficulty: 3/10
To get gold: Get at least 70 Rings
How to: Jet's in this mission again, but only to distract you. Don't
 bother about Jet. I crossed the finish line without boosting once with
 Jet WAY behind me. As said before, use the track boosts to get on a
 line of Rings and stay on that line. Find more lines of Rings lying
 around as well.

Mission 4

Description: Fight with Jet! Hit him with 1 or more attacks and reach
 the goal before he does
Location: Green Cave
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: Hit Jet at least 3 times
How to: This is just like Wave's missions. Give Jet a head start, tail
 him, and boost up to him and hit him. Purposely slow down and wait
 for him to get ahead, boost again and hit him once more. Repeat this
 one more time, and get to the finish.

Mission 5

Description: Fight with Jet! Collect the scattered junk and reach the
 goal before he does
Location: SEGA CARNIVAL
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: Collecting the pieces of junk is easy. However, there is one
 drawback. If you're not fast enough, Jet will come along, and will
 take the junk for himself. At the first jump, do an Up Super jump to
 get the first piece of junk. Get the rest of the junk on the way
 until you get to the Monkey Ball section. Stay on the platforms, and
 jump off of them to grab the junk in the air. Finally, grab the rest
 pieces of junk on the way and get to the finish.

~~~~~
EXTRA 2
~~~~~

Mission 1

Description: A bunch of Rings have just appeared. Collect 50 or more
 Rings, then reach the goal
Location: Sand Ruins
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: Get at least 70 Rings
How to: Just like all the other missions that were like this one, find
 a line of Rings, and stay on it. Use the track boosts when neccessary,
 and stay on the line of Rings it gives you. Jet is just another 
 distraction in this mission so ignore him.


Mission 2

Description: Jet is following you! Maintain a speed of at least 140 to
 break away from him
Location: Babylong Garden
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 1'00"06
How to: Yet again, Jet is just another distraction, so ignore him.
 Use the track boosts as much as possible and boost before a jump, or
 when you're about to smash some objects. There are a lot of places
 where you can easily screw up, so watch out. Do a Down Super jump at
 the first jump, and do an Up Super jump at the next one you see. 
 Finally, at the last jump, do a Down Super jump to get really high,
 and boost yourself to the finish.


Mission 3

Description: Reach the goal with over half of your Air left
Location: Digital Dimension
Difficulty: 8/10
To get gold: Have at least 180 Air when you reach the goal
How to: There are A LOT of bombs and obstacles in here so WATCH OUT.
 At the beginning try not to do an Air slide. If you want to quickly
 move to the right of left, just lightly tap the L1 or R1 buttons.
 At the first jump, do an Up Super jump to get to the higher platform
 and an air capsule. Keep avoiding the bombs until you get to the 
 transfering point of hell and heaven. There, rotate your analog stick
 as fast as possible! When you reach the heaven part, grind on all the
 rails for more air. At the end, grind on the last rail, and do a Down
 Super jump at the last jump, to get lots of air.

Mission 4

Description: Fight with Jet! Hit him with 1 one or more attacks and
 reach the goal before he does
Location: SEGA CARNIVAL
Difficulty: 6/10
To get gold: Hit Jet at least 3 times
How to: Like all the other missions like this, allow Jet to have a 
 head start, tail him, boost up to him, and attack him. Afterwards,
 purposely slow down, wait for him to pass and hit him one more time.
 Do this once more, and get to the finish.

Mission 5

Description: A match with Jet to prove who is the fastest! Prove that
 you are by reaching the goal before Jet!
Location: Sand Ruins
Difficulty: 7/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0'56"38
How to: Jet is actually a little smarter in this mission but not that
 much smarter. Use all the track boosts to your advantage, and boost
 yourself, whenever possible. At the start, do not take the left side
 of the track. At the first jump, do a Down Super jump to get lots of
 air. Keep boosting, until you get to the ruins. Do the 3 rail transfer
 inside that I've mentioned before. After you land on the platform,
 do an Up Super jump to land on another platform. Get yourself to the
 finish from there by boosting.

Mission 1

Description: Catch up to a police car and take the treasure befor Jet
 appears
Location: Night Chase
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0'14"26
How to: The police car is really easy to catch up to. At the first jump
 do an Up Super jump to land on the higher platform. Keep to the right
 and use the track boosts there. Then boost yourself and chase after
 the car. After you get yourself on the road, boost one more time
 then you'll get the car.

Mission 2

Description: Grind 8 or more times to get the treasure before Jet 
 appears
Location: Red Canyon
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: Grind 14 times
How to: At the first jump, do an Up Super jump to get to the first 
 rail. Keep transfering rails from then on all the way until the end
 of the course.

Mission 3

Description: Catch up to a robot before Jet appears to grab the 
 treasure
Location: Ice Factory
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0'34"25
How to: At the first jump do a Down Super jump. Use the track boosts
 as much as possible, and boost yourself too. Whenever you come across 
 objects to be destroyed, boost before you destroy them. Do not bump
 into anything, else the robot will get enough speed to get away
 and you'll lose your chance at getting gold. Oh, and try now to run
 out of air either.

Mission 4

Description: Use Air Ride 30 or more times to get the treasure
 before Jet appears
Location: White Cave
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: Air ride 38 times
How to: At the first jump, do an Up Super jump to fly to the first
 Ring. Now the difficult part, is to stay in these Rings, until you
 reach the end of the course. Maneuver yourself carefully, and don't
 forget to pick up the treasure on the way.

Mission 5

Description: Fight with Jet! Collect scattered junk and reach the goal
 before Jet does
Location: Night Chase
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: All 12 pieces of junk
How to: Get a good head start to grab the first piece of junk or else
 Jet is going to grab it. After the first jump, stay to your right to
 get more pieces of junk. On the road, try to evade the cars, and get
 more pieces of junk. Take the right tunnel when you get there. After,
 grab more pieces of junk on the way and watch out for the bombs. Do
 not worry about Jet, because after the first junk piece, he'll fall 
 WAY behind.

Mission 1

Description: Destroy 7 stone statues in a row to uncover the hidden
 treasure before Jet appears
Location: Dark Desert
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: Smash the first 7 stone statues you see
How to: At the first jump, do an Up Super to get some speed when you 
 hit the ground. Get all the way to the entrance of the ruins. There
 you will see some statues. When you get to the first 3 statues, boost,
 and start hitting all the other statues as well.

Mission 2

Description: Grind 8 or more times to get the treasure before Jet
 appears
Location: Sky Road
Difficulty: 5/10
To get gold: Grind 14 times
How to: At the beginning, stay to your right. Go off of the jump, and
 land on the rail underneath. Keep yourself on the rails until you get
 to the last one. You'll get the treasure on the way, so don't worry
 about it.

Mission 3

Description: Destroy 7 stone statues in a row while in sub-space to
 uncover the hidden treasure before Jet appears
Location: Babylon Guardian
Difficulty: 4/10
To get gold: Smash the first 7 stone statues you see
How to: When you get to the first 3 statues, first hit the first 2, 
 then boost just as soon as you hit the third one. Afterwards, 
 continue hitting the next 3 until you get to that last one. Again,
 boost just at the last one, and go for the last statue. Because you'll
 need to maneuver very carefully, this may take a few tries to do.

Mission 4

Description: Use Air Ride 26 or more times to get the treasure before
 Jet appears
Location: SEGA ILLUSION
Difficulty: 3/10
To get gold: Use Air Ride at least 33 times
How to: At the beginning, jump off of the platform and into the Ring
 to start Air Riding. It will be smooth sailing from here; you 
 practically don't have to move Tails while he's flying. On the way
 you may notice a Ring that's underneath another one. Don't try and
 get it, as it's there to distract you. Anyways, Air Ride all the way
 to the end.

Mission 5

Description: The final battle with Storm, Wave, and Jet! Prove you're
 the best by reaching the goal before them
Location: Sky Road
To get gold: I achieved a time of 0'53"01
How to: Storm, Wave, and Jet are just there to intimidate you. Ignore
 them completley and do your own thing. At the first jump, do a Down
 Super jump to get lots of air. Watch out for the bombs on the way. At
 the second jump, do an up Super jump to get lots of Air there too.
 You can ignore the next jump, and boost your way to the next one. At
 the next jump, do an Up Super jump to get an air capsule, and more 
 air. Finally, at the last jump, do a Down Super jump, to get to the
 higher platform, and boost your way to the finish!




If you have collected all the gold medals, then I congratulate you!!!
It has been long, but you've done a great job. Pat yourself on the 
back, and go buy that Chaos Emerald gear! Super Sonic awaits you!
