Background Info

Sonic the Hedgehog is a videogame icon who has been around for over 17 years. From his first game in 1991, he has become very popular to gamers in the United States, Japan, and other areas in the world. Besides games he has also had 4 animated series, a movie, and a comic book made by Archie Comics. Right now, Sonic Unleashed is his latest adventure in the videogames.

Summary of the Opening Movie

In the beginning, we watch as Sonic infiltrates Eggman's space armada. When Sonic uses the 7 Chaos Emeralds to transform into Super Sonic, Eggman quickly tries to escape into a strange looking spaceship. Once Super Sonic catches up to Eggman, Eggman pleads for forgiveness.

It seems that the battle is pretty much won so Sonic agrees to let Eggman go and begins to leave. But then Eggman pulls a switch and an energy cage forms around Sonic. The machines that released the cage now separate Sonic and the Chaos Emeralds, as Eggman reveals the space ship is actually a Chaos Energy Cannon. He then uses the energy coming from Sonic and the Emeralds and fires a ray at the Earth.

The results of this cause the planet to break up into pieces, floating above the Earth's core, while awakening a dark energy being known as Dark Gaia. It also causes Sonic to turn into a new form he calls the Werehog while the Chaos Emeralds lose their colors and turn black as Night. Happy to accomplish his plans, Eggman ejects Sonic and the Chaos Emeralds, sending them towards the Earth's atmosphere.

Dark Gaia divides himself and spreads over the entire planet...

Important Characters

These are all of the main characters in Sonic Unleashed.

Sonic the Hedgehog

  • Bio: Sonic is a blue hedgehog who's well known for his superpower: speed. Sonic can run faster than the speed of sound and enjoys travel and going on adventures. He can also use his speed to curl into a ball, spin, and cut through different materials including metal. Although he is impatient sometimes, he always helps those in need and hates to see injustice. His only known weakness is water. At high speeds, he can hydroplane, but he can't swim. After meeting with Chip, he sets out on his journey to restore the planet, the Chaos Emeralds, Chip's memories, and himself.

Other Versions of Sonic in this game

Super Sonic
    • Bio: This is a form Sonic takes when he collects all 7 Chaos Emeralds (and sometimes 50 Rings). In this form he turns a golden yellow, can move faster speeds, perform stronger versions of regular moves, becomes invulnerable to almost all attacks, and can even fly. However, this transformation always has a time limit.
Sonic the Werehog
    • Bio: The Werehog is a new form that Sonic takes during the Nighttime, due to the fact Dark Gaia's power becomes active at night. Since Super Sonic was being used to power the Chaos Energy Cannon, Sonic's body absorbed a part of Dark Gaia. However, since Sonic's mind was strong, his body was affected instead, unlike others who have been possessed by Dark Gaia's minions. While in this form, his arms are more muscular and his limbs can expand and stretch out over certain distances. Though he can't break the sound barrier at night, he can dish out punches, kicks, and other devastating blows in a matter of seconds. It is truly the complete opposite of Sonic's regular Hedgehog form.

Chip

  • Bio: Chip is a strange little creature, that Sonic found and nicknamed, who has amnesia. He travels with Sonic in hopes of recovering his memories. Although Chip forgot who he is, he seems to have knowledge of Sonic's abilities, places, and points out things people would probably miss. He also has other mysterious powers besides a love of sweet foods and what seems to be an endless supply of chocolate. As Sonic and Chip restore the planet, Chip will eventually recover his memories and his purpose.

Tails (aka Miles Prower) the Fox

  • Bio: Sonic's best friend who's IQ and mechanical abilities almost match those of Dr. Eggman's. His real name is Miles Prower but he was given the nickname Tails due to the fact that he has 2 instead of 1. He can use them to spin like a propeller and fly around for periods of time. When traveling long distances or to airborne places, Tails uses his biplane Tornado, which he has modified over past adventures. He was last seen heading towards Apotos...

Amy Rose

  • Bio: A pink Hedgehog who believes she is Sonic's girlfriend. It's wise not to make her angry otherwise she will go into her own form of Unleash Mode and attack with her Piko Piko Hammer, which she can create out of thin air. She loves Sonic so much that she has mistaken other male hedgehogs for him. She was last seen heading towards Spagonia...

Professor Pickle

  • Bio: A Professor at Spagonia University, who is the leading expert on Dark Gaia. He loves cucumber sandwiches.

Dr. Eggman (aka Dr. Ivo Robotnik)

  • Bio: A mad scientist is who bent on taking over the world. His plan is to create a place called Eggman Land which will be his base of operations as he sends attacks around the world. As always, Sonic is the only thing standing is the way of his dreams. Can he be stopped now that he's unleashed Dark Gaia and broken the world?

Orbot

  • Bio: A robot assistant that Eggman recently created. Although he's intelligent, his mouth gets him into trouble.

Dark Gaia

  • Bio: A dark energy being that slept inside the core of the planet, who becomes more powerful during the night. He was awakened when Eggman used the Chaos Emeralds to separate the planet. Since it wasn't the Time of Awakening, he couldn't maintain his body, so when the planet split into pieces, he did too. Every Dark Gaia Minion you encounter during the nighttime is a part of Dark Gaia. Some of them became stronger and changed shape by feeding on people's negative actions and emotions. Some Dark Gaia minions may also try to possess a person's body, causing their hosts to act the opposite of their normal selves.

Important Items and Places

These are some of the important items and locations in the game.

Chaos Emeralds

  • Bio: These are 7 powerful gemstones that come in 7 different colors: Green, Red, Blue, Cyan, Yellow, Purple, and Grey. Should a person be fortunate enough to find 1, it can bestow the user with incredible abilities. The most common two uses are allowing the user to perform Chaos Control, giving them control over time and space, or using all 7 to transform into a different form. After Eggman used them to break the planet into pieces, the Emeralds all turned black and lost their shine. Is there a way to return them back to normal?

Tornado

  • Bio: A biplane that Sonic and Tails use to travel. The current model is a combination of the original and the Tornado 2, allowing it to transform 2 Modes: Flight and Battle.

Temples of Gaia

  • Bio: These are 7 temples located throughout the world. Although their purpose is unknown, Eggman seems bent on finding them for some reason...

Controls

In this game, Sonic has some of his old abilities from past games and plus new ones. Not only that, but his new Werehog form comes with a different style of gameplay. This game also has an Experience system which can be used to level up his current abilities in either form.

Hedgehog's Regular Moves

These are all of Sonic's regular Hedgehog moves and abilities.

  • Ring Energy/Boost Gauge: This is the gauge shown on the bottom of the screen. When the gauge is empty Sonic cannot perform regular boosts or Air Boosts. To fill it up, collect Rings and destroy enemies.
ActionButtons/ControlsTips/Tricks
Walk/RunTo walk and run, move the Left Analog stick in the direction you want to go.In order to stop running or slow down, move the Left Analog in the opposite direction that Sonic is running.
CrouchPress and hold the B Button when not moving or on a rail to crouch down.Use this to dodge and to get under places when standing on moving platforms.
CrawlingWhile crouching, continue to hold the B Button while moving the Left Analog Stick in order to crawlAn alternative in case you miss an area you would normally slide under.
Spin KickPress the B Button quickly while crouching or crawling to do a Spin Kick.A quick attack Sonic can do.
SlidePress and hold the B Button while running to slide.Use this to get through tight spaces, dodge enemy attacks quickly, and to attack enemies, especially those that carry shields.
Spin JumpPress the A Button while standing or running to jump.Depending on how hard you press down the button affects how high he jumps. If you press it lightly he hops without spinning, if you press it harder he jumps his highest while spinning. This is also Sonic's basic attack.
Homing AttackThe Buttons for the homing attack have been changed in this game. First press the A button. Next, while in midair, move the left analog button to choose a target. Finally, press the X Button to hit the target.Coming Soon
BoostPress/Hold the X Button when the Boost Gauge has is filled to move faster, destroy incoming enemies, and run on water.If you press the Jump Button while still holding the Boost Button, you can jump while still keeping speed. Any Rings Sonic passes will be drawn towards him.
Quick StepWhile moving forward in 3D areas, press LB to quickly move left or RB to quickly move rightNone
DriftingTo turn around certain curves in certain levels use the B/LT/RT to turn while still running. Hold the B to for long turns, and hold the LT (turning left)/RT (turning right) while doing close turns.This move takes some practice. You can also do this move while still boosting.
Grinding/Grind StepWhen Sonic is grinding on a rail, press the LB Button to switch to a rail to the left and the RB Button to switch to a Rail on the right. Press the A Button to jump without moving the Analog Stick to jump once and stay on the same rail. Hold the B Button to move fasterNone
SkydivingSometimes while in midair, Sonic will slowly float down instead of dropping normally. You can use the Boost Button to move faster but be aware that he becomes harder to move to certain positions.Skydiving only occurs in Rooftop Run, Dragon Road, and Eggman Land

Hedgehog's Special Shoes

Similar to the Sonic Adventure games, there are Power-Up items that Sonic needs in order to progress in the story, get all Collectible items, and play certain DLC Acts. In this game, they come in the form of Shoes that can be found in 4 different Entrance Stages. They only affect Sonic's Hedgehog form.

NameDescriptionLocationAbilityControlsPersonal Experience
Stomping ShoesHefty shoes made of steel. The spikes on the soles make them even more devastating.Holoska Entrance Stage during the DaytimeStompIn order to do a Stomp, press the B button once after jumping or while in midair.Not only does Stomping destroy enemies and items underneath Sonic, it's the fastest way to get to the ground and come to a stop
Wall Jump ShoesShoes with coils in the soles that put a spring in your step, literally.Spagonia Entrance Stage during the DaytimeWall JumpIn order to do a wall jump, press the A button as soon as you touch a high area of a wall. Press A again as soon as you jump to the other wall on the opposite and again to reach the top of the walls.I found this ability to be very useful, especially when combined with the Air Boost Ability. In certain areas where you accidently run off a platform to certain death, Sonic can Wall jump to stop his fall, Air Boost to reach the other wall, and repeat to eventually get to safety. Watch your timing though.
Air Boost ShoesShoes as light as a feather. They even let you accelerate even in midair.Chun-nan Entrance Stage during the DaytimeAir BoostIn order to do an Air Boost, press the X button once after jumping or while in midair while the Boost Gauge is filled.Once you have this ability, be very careful when trying to do Homing Attacks. If you don't remember to move the Left Analog stick, Sonic will fly past his target to his death.
Light Speed Dash ShoesSparkling golden shoes. They're made with the same material as Rings.Shamar Entrance Stage during the DaytimeLightspeed Dash (aka Ring Dash)In order to do a Ring Dash, press the Y button when you're near a row of rings.This move has changed since the past games. Sonic will only follow a trail of rings in the form of a horizontal line, not in a circle.

Bobsled/Roller Coaster Car

In Cool Edge and Eggman Land, Sonic will use these to travel. The controls change slightly.

FlipPress the X Button when going over a Ramp to have Sonic do a midair flipNot sure what the significance of this move is

Werehog's Regular Moves

These are all the regular moves Sonic the Werehog can do.

  • Shield Gauge:
  • Unleash Gauge: this gauge appears above the Health Gauge. To fill it, collect Dark Gaia Force by defeating enemies, destroy items, and perform Combos and Critical Attacks.
  • Health Gauge:
ActionButtons/ControlsTips/Tricks
WalkTo walk around, use the Left Analog stick in the direction you want to go.None
DashTo dash, hold the LT or RT while moving the Left Analog stick.Dashing allows Sonic to move faster. There are also certain techniques that can be done while dashing.
Jump/Double JumpPress the A Button to jump. Press the A Button again after jumping, in midair, to do a double jump.The double jump gets more height and distance while Sonic is moving.
Dash JumpWhile Dashing press the A to do a wide jump.Some areas require this move in order to for Sonic to access them. There are also moves that Sonic can learn that require this technique
Straight AttackPress the Y Button to attack enemies from a distance who are in front of Sonic.See Skill Lists Section
Wide AttackPress the X Button to attack enemies who are close and surrounding Sonic.See Skill Lists Section
Shield/GuardPress/Hold the LB Button to create a shield that protects Sonic from certain attacks.You can move around and do barrel rolls and backflips by pressing A. If your shield breaks, it will slowly recover. There are some techniques that Sonic can do while the shield is up
Unleash ModeOnce the Dark Gaia Force goes past the White marker in the Unleash Gauge, press the RB Button to enter Unleash Mode.When Sonic enters this mode, he becomes stronger, faster, and immune to most enemies attacks. Use it wisely, because once you enter Unleash Mode you cannot get out of it until the gauge is empty.

Grabbing with the Werehog

The Werehog can grab and carry different things by pressing the B Button, but the Buttons change depending on what's being held. Press the X Button when trying to grab large enemies to cancel the grab.

Jump Grab

  • After jumping, press B to grab an enemy, to jump up. Mostly used on Dark Bats.

Small Enemy (Little Rexes, Frights, Little Fighters)

  • A: Jump while holding the enemy
  • B: Smash the enemy into the ground. It hurts other enemies who are in the way.
  • X: Throw the enemy. A cursor normally appears when other enemies are around so you can throw it at them.
  • Holding Y: Swing an enemy, hitting all surrounding enemies in the way. A cursor will appear showing where the enemy will be thrown. You can't swing forever so choose a target.
    • Note: When you have one small enemy, you can grab another small enemy, and carry both in each hand. The controls are the same as holding a single enemy.

Medium Size Enemy (Nightmares, Egg Fighters, Egg Shooters, etc)

  • A: Jump while holding them
  • Repeatedly B: Sonic swings the enemy, in front and back, into the ground while hitting anything in the way
  • X: Same as Small Enemies
  • Holding Y: Same as with Small Enemies
    • Note: After a while enemies may break free of Sonic's grasp if you wait too long. Also, he'll let them go if he gets attacked.

Boxes/Barrels

  • A: Jump while holding it
  • B: Gently set it down
  • X: Throw it
  • Repeatedly Press Y: Do a combo where Sonic swings it
    • Note: When holding something, press LT/RT to move faster.

Ledges

  • Sonic can grab ledges and climb around the side.
    • Opposite Direction of where the pole is + A: Jump in that direction

Tightrope Ledges

  • Sonic has to walk across these to get to certain areas. Sonic can hang on the side of them like the regular Ledges, but some can't be grabbed or have spikes on them. If you move Sonic to a point where he starts to tilt back and forth, move to keep his balance, because if he stays in that position for a certain amount of time he will fall. Sonic can hop across certain corners, if you check the distance first.

Vertical/Climb Poles

  • A: Jump off
  • Left Analog (Up) + A: Sonic climbs up the pole faster

Swing Poles

  • A: Jump off
  • X/B: Let go of the pole

Side Poles

  • Up + A: Jump up above the pole
  • Left + A: Jump to the left of the pole
  • Right + A: Jump to the right of the pole
  • Opposite Direction of where the pole is + A: Jump in that direction

Critical Attacks

These are finishing QTE moves Sonic the Werehog can pull off on certain medium sized and large enemies after they've taken damage and have an icon above their heads that look like a burning arrow, facing up. To do a Critical Attack stand near the enemy with the icon, press the B Button, and press the Buttons that show up before the line makes a complete circle.

Notes about Critical Attacks:

  • Critical Attacks are different for every enemy
  • doing a Critical Attack makes the enemy drop more Chaos Orbs (experience) than when you normally defeat them. However, be aware of where you activate them because you may send enemies flying near bottomless pits
  • If you fail a Critical Attack, you will take damage instead while the enemy you tried it on will recover full health
  • the time it takes to pull off Critical Attacks changes depending on how much health the enemy has left. The less health the Enemy has, the longer you can pull off Critical Attacks
  • If you're trying to perform a grab instead of a Critical Attack, knock them to the ground and then grab them
  • While doing a Critical Attack you will be unaffected by outside attacks until the QTE is over. However, once it's over you may get hit by an incoming attack so shield as soon as you can
  • using a Critical Attack will force an Egg Fighter to drop their swords and shields

Skill Lists

At the beginning of the game, the Werehog starts out with a few attack combos. As you increase his Combat Stat, more effective and stronger techniques will be unlocked. To see what moves the Werehog can do, press the Start Button, and choose the option Skills. On this menu, it splits all the Werehog's techniques into 4 categories and shows the Button sequences. Here I put down all info involving every technique, in that same order.

Straight Attacks

These are attacks that start with the Y Button.

Were-HammerBasic TechniqueHit the Y Button 4 times/repeatedlySonic throws several straight punches.This is the basic Straight Attack that's good when attacking enemies from a distance. This is stronger than the Wild Whirl Technique.

Feral Were-Hammer16Hit the Y Button 5 times/repeatedlySame as Were-Hammer except Sonic ends the combo with a straight double punch.The double punch at the end sends enemies flying, so this allows you to make room when surrounded by several enemies. As your strength increases it also becomes good when taking out enemies.
Werewheel Rush17Hit the Y Button 4 times and then hit the X Buttons repeatedly while simultaneously moving the left analog stick in the direction you want to go inAfter doing the Were-Hammer, Sonic does a cartwheel, hurting all enemies in his path, jumps up into the air, and bashes the ground, making any enemy near the impact dizzy.This is an awesome technique to use if you can pull it off without inference from outside attacks.
Vertical Were-Hammer20Hit the Y Button 4 times and then hit the A ButtonAfter doing the Were-Hammer, Sonic jumps high in the air, punches the ground, and sends every enemy within the radius of the attack into the air.You can use this to lead into Aerial Attacks, but be careful not to press the A Button twice.
Knuckle Sandwich Combo28Press the Y Button twice, then the X Button twice, and finally the Y twiceSimilar to Donkey Kick Combo except Sonic ends it by slamming his right hand down and throwing both hands up.A good attack that throws enemies off balance.
Unleashed Knuckle Sandwich30Press the Y Button twice, the X Button twice, the Y Button twice, and finally the X Button twiceSame as Knuckle Sandwich Combo except Sonic ends it with a series of fast punches and finally a giant arm/fist punch.The best Straight Attack. Personally I found it harder to pull off than Unleashed Wild Combo, so watch out for outside attacks when surrounded by enemies.

Unleashed Wild Combo31Press the X Button twice, the Y Button twice, the X Button twice, and finally the Y Button twiceAfter doing the Ultimate Wild Combo, Sonic swings his fists in a half circle, jumps up into the air, and sends 2 Missile Punches into the ground.One the best attacks in the Werehog's arsenal. This technique alone can defeat an entire group of enemies.

Aerial Attacks

In order to do these, first press X, X, A, (Sho-claw-ken) or Y, Y, A (Sho-hog-ken) to get airborne. If you try doing these after Double or Dash Jumping, they may not go through the entire combo.

Aerial PiledriverBasic TechniqueWhile in midair, press the B Button when near a medium sized enemy.While in midair, Sonic grabs a medium sized enemy and smashes them into the ground, hitting all enemies with the impact's range.This Attack is perfect to use at the end of other Aerial Attacks. It cannot only defeat one enemy but damage others waiting for you on the ground.
Flying Double-Punch Crush4While in midair, press the Y Button twice and then press the A Button.Same as Flying Double Punch except Sonic ends with a forward kick.This attack sends enemies flying.
Aerial Claw Slash and Spin5While in midair, press the X Button twice and then press the A Button.Same as Aerial Claw Slash except ends by spinning forward.This attack can also push Sonic pass certain areas while in midair.
Shooting Star Combo8While in midair, press the Y Button 3 times and then press the A Button.Same as Flying Double Punch except Sonic does a forward cartwheel and swings both fists down, knocking an enemy into the ground.Without the last A Button press, this gives Sonic an extra attack to Flying Double Punch. With the last A Button press, the enemy sent into the ground sends all enemies on the ground near it flying backwards.
Typhoon Combo9While in midair, press the X Button 3 times and then press the A Button.Same as Aerial Claw Slash except ends by doing a wide claw attack and spinning forward.Without the last A Button press, this gives Sonic an extra attack to Aerial Claw Slash. With the last A Button press, Sonic finishes the enemy or attacks any other flying enemies in the air
Crescent Moon Strike22Press the Y Button twice, the X Button twice, and immediately press the A Button afterwardAfter doing a Flying Double-Punch, Sonic does a flip and a series of straight punches, and bashes the enemy into the ground like the Shooting Star Combo.Without the last A Button press, Sonic sends the enemy flying. With the last A Button press, the enemy is sent into the ground sending all enemies on the ground near it flying backwards. This Attack is perfect for defeating 1 enemy quickly and then focusing on the others.
Hurricane Combo23Press the X Button twice, the Y Button twice, and immediately press the A Button afterwardAfter doing an Aerial Claw Slash, Sonic stretches and swings his arms in front and back of him, then spins, and does a reverse spin roundhouse punch.Without the last A Button press, Sonic spins in the air with his arms wide out damaging any enemies already in the air. With the last A Button press, they are sent flying. Personally, I prefer without the last A Button press because his arms are further out then with any other attack and enemies sent into the air are already defeated.

Basic Items

These are regular items that can easily be found throughout Entrance Stages and Acts. Some act as Power-ups.

Basic ItemsActsEffect/Purpose
RingsBoth ActsRings are the most important item to collect in the Daytime levels because they allow Sonic to take hits from enemies, spikes, bombs, and other obstacles that do damage. If Sonic is hit when he doesn't have any rings, he will lose one life. This doesn't apply to the Werehog but collecting rings will replenish his life bar. When you collect 100 Rings, you will get an extra life. Also, all Rings you collect in Entrance Stages, Acts, and Missions can be used to buy items from shops.
10 RingsBoth ActsThese Rings are 10 Rings in 1. When the Werehog collects these his health goes up more.
Hint RingsBoth ActsThese are Question Marks with multicolored spheres rotating around them. If you touch these, Chip will give you a hint about how to use certain abilities, items, gimmicks, enemies, and other things.
Heal RingsNight ActsThese are Rings that have green crystals inside of them. When Sonic touches them, his health bar becomes full. They are hidden throughout the Act and you have to hit and destroy things to find them
Chaos OrbsBoth ActsThese are yellow diamonds that appear after defeating enemies. These add experience to your Experience Gauge.
Dark Gaia ForceNight ActsThese are white and purple balls that appear when you hit and destroy things and defeat enemies during the Night Acts. Collecting these will fill your Unleash Gauge. The ones that glow brightly will make your Unleash Gauge full.
Shield ChargeNight ActsThey resemble the shield counter above the Unleash Gauge and be found inside certain objects in Night Acts. These fully refill your shield counter.
Power ShieldNight ActsThese are floating shields that glow aqua green. This Power-up gives Sonic an aqua green glow and lowers the amount of damage he takes from enemies for a period of time. They are hidden throughout the Act and you have to hit and destroy things to find them
Super ClawNight ActsThese are floating Claw Gloves that glow red. This Power-up gives Sonic a red glow and increases the power in his attacks towards enemies for a period of time. They are hidden throughout the Act and you have to hit and destroy things to find them.
Goal RingBoth ActsWhen Sonic touches a Goal Ring, the level is cleared. Sometimes the Goal Ring will come in the form of a Gaia Key, item, or a Townsperson. At the end of Night Acts, you normally have to defeat enemies to make it appear.

Gimmicks

These are items that Sonic must use to get around in the Entrance Stages and Acts. Some allow him to find secret items and shortcuts.

Gimmick's NameActsEffect/Purpose
SpringsDay Acts OnlyTouching them sends Sonic to other points. He can also Home Attack them from a distance.
QTE SpringsDay Acts OnlyThese are blue Springs. Hitting these will send Sonic flying towards pads that require one button to be pressed in order for Sonic to jump off them. If the pads have a button on them, you always have to press that button each time you play that Act. If it has a ?/Question mark, then the QTE will always be random
Spike SpringsDay Acts Onlythese look like regular springs, but they have spikes on the other side. After a period of time they flip over and Sonic may hit the spikes instead of the spring. Be careful when using a Homing Attack on them!
Egg SpringsDay Acts OnlyThese are red, rectangular, and have Eggman's icon on them. They laugh when you hit them and are normally placed to block Sonic or send him towards obstacles and bottomless pits.

Dash RingsDay Acts OnlyThese are big wide rings that Sonic can jump through, which will send him flying in a certain direction.
Rainbow RingsDay Acts OnlyA multicolored version of the Dash Rings. They do the same thing but give 1000 points the first time Sonic goes through them.
Directional Launchers/Jump SelectorsDay Acts OnlyThese are circular devices that send Sonic in a certain direction depending on what Button you press. The button normally shown is the one that sends Sonic on the regular path. However, where the Button sends you is the same for all of them. The A Button sends Sonic up into the air, the X Button sends Sonic in the direction the device was originally facing, and the B Button sends Sonic down. If you don't press any Buttons after a period of time, it will drop Sonic down and you will lose control temporary.

These are some items, objects, and anything you want to avoid and be aware of.

NameActsEffect/Purpose
SpikesDay Acts OnlyThe most common hazard you'll run into. They can appear on the ground, walls, and even on Rails. Either Sonic can Jump over the ones on the ground and on rails.
Spiked BallsBoth ActsIf you thought spikes were bad, now they can move around! Make sure not to touch them.
Spiked TrapsDay Acts OnlyThese are floating platforms with spikes on the bottom or the sides. They move when Sonic gets close enough. Quickly hop on top of the horizontal ones it after they drop.

Swinging BladesDay Acts OnlyGiant blades that swing across the ground and skies in certain levels. Sonic can slide under them.
TrippingDay Acts Onlysometimes in the Day Acts if you get hit while running or run over broken paths, Sonic will trip and you'll temporary lose control.
Getting CrushedDay Acts OnlyAlthough, this is rare, there are some obstacles in the game that can crush Sonic. If this happens, it will cost you a life.
ElectrocutionBoth ActsIf Sonic gets electrocuted he will freeze temporary. Oddly, enough this won't kill him during the day even if he has no Rings. However, at night it becomes annoying since he can't shield against it.
Getting BurnedBoth ActsDuring the day, Sonic will take damage if he gets hits by fire. However, at Night if Sonic is on fire, it won't leave for a period of time and will lower your health. If you get caught on fire at Night, hop in some water or hit a water barrel. Sonic can't shield against flames.

Sun and Moon Medals/Levels

These are collectibles that allow you to unlock new Acts in the Entrance Stages. Sun Medals unlock Day Acts and the Moon Medals unlock Night Acts.

Also, when you collect them, your Sun and Moon levels will go up respectively. Certain Gaia Gates (portals to Acts) only open once you've reach a certain Sun or Moon level.

For example, in order to open Sun Level 4 Gaia Gates, your Sun Level has to be 4 or higher.

In order to collect Medals you have to find them in the Town Stages, Entrance Stages, Acts, Missions, and touch them. Professor Pickle has 6 Sun Medals and 6 Moon Medals that he'll sometimes give you after giving him Souvenirs.

Sun/Moon LevelNumber of Sun/Moon Medals
10-14
215-29
330-44
445-59
560-79
680-119

Other Notes about Sun and Moon Medals:

  • If you see a medal that's transparent, that means you've already collected it
  • There are 200 of each kind of Medal so there 400 medals that can be collected
  • in the Town stages, Moon Medals will only appear during the Day and Sun Medals only appear during the night
  • Day Acts have more Moon Medals than Sun Medals and Night Acts have more Sun Medals than Moon Medals
  • you can look at the number of Medals you need to reach the next Sun/Moon medal by standing on the Gaia Gate and having Chip tell you or by looking at the gauges in the Status on the Pause Screen
  • in order to beat the game you need Sun Level 7 and Moon Level 6
