All ability upgrades!
Having trouble finding an upgrade? Think there's more to your character? Well, here are a list of upgrades and where to get them:
(NOTE: I haven't done BIG's lures!)
LIGHT SPEED SHOES-in a manhole underneath where a car should be, follow the tunnel to the upgrade
BRACELET-Go upstairs in the hotel, use RING DASH!
ANCIENT LIGHT-near RED MOUNTAIN and the monkey guard, on the rock!

RTHYM BADGE-should be to the left of the temple as soon as you reach the stairs (ANCIENT WORLD)
JET ANKLET-in the sewers near twinkle park, fly up through a gap in the ceiling!

SHOVEL CLAWS-take a left near where the mystic ruins chao garden
FIGHTING GLOVES- When at Big's house climb up the tree and on the ledge sticking out of the wall, follow this ledge!

WARRIOR FEATHER-beat the high score on the hammer game!
LONG HAMMER-beat an even higher score on the hammer game (tip-use warrior feather!)

JET BOOSTER- in egg carrier in one of the rooms on the top floor!
BLASTER- opposite room from the JET BOOSTER, it is covered in water the first time in egg carrier, but not the second time!

LIFE BELT- should be before the ice stage near the water!
POWER ROD-well, your blind if you didn't notice the power up under BIG's bed in his first cut-scene! And guess what? It's the POWER ROD!
All Power Ups I know so far.
Light Speed shoes: Allows you to do the light speed dash. In sewer near city hall, can't miss it because you need it to go to Casinopolis.
Crystal Ring: Less charge time for light speed dash. In hotel elevator, you need light speed shoes. Can get after Light Speed Shoes.
Ancient Light: Allows you to attack enemys with the light speed dash. On the rock near the bridge to the Master Emerald shrine, need it to enter Red Mountain.

Rhythm Badge: Allows You to do the continuous tail attacks. Get in past. Needed to get out of past. To the right after the stairs on the other side of the building.
Jet Anklet: Allows you to fly faster. Can get in begginning of game, in the sewer near Twinkle Park.

Shovel Claws: Allow you to dig. It's in the room where the monkey in the cage is in. Needed to go to Red Mountain.
Fighting Gloves: Allows you to do the Mega Heat Knuckles whatever Attack.
Can get on your first time in the Mystic Ruins Jungle. Go on the tree near Big's house and go on the wall, find a floor and go straight.

Warrior's Feather: Allows you to do the Spin Hammer Attack. Can get by tieing with or beating Eggman's score. Get by playing Hedgehog Hammer when trying to escape.
Long Hammer: Play Hedgehog Hammer on the Egg Carrier for a second time on the second visit before you beat Final Egg or Post-story mode. Try to beat your High Score. Increases the length of the Spin Hammer Attack.

Life Belt: Allows you to swim in water. Near the pond near Ice Cap's ladder.
Power Rod: Allows longer fishing distance. You got to be an idiot if you didn't see the power up under big's bed in his first cut scene.
Lure power ups: there are two so far. One in the sewer near twinkle park (under the hole you go through to get Tails's jet anklet) and the other on the Egg Carrier in the Prison Room (you can find it easily, you can't miss it). Allows you to catch bigger fish.

E-102 Gamma:
Jet Booster: In the room that says do not enter when your Sonic or Tails. There are two so if you go to the room with water in it, just go to the other one on the other side. Need it to fight Sonic on the bridge. Allows you to hover till you hit land or till you fall.
Laser Blaster: Allows you to hit targets in wider range. It is not like the SA2B laser blasters, well, kinda. In the room with the water in it on first visit, if you found the booster without going to the room with the water, it's in the opposite room. It's filled with water on first visit but not on second visit, you can get it before hot shelter, after E-105 Zeta (not Epsilon who is E-104), or after E-101 mk II Beta upgraded.
Another way to get rings in Adventure Fields
Playing with Amy (you have to have the Warrior Feather), in Station Square and the Mystic Ruins, use the Spinning Hammer Attack to cut the grass and you'll get rings. Oddly most sites don't mention this at all.

Playing with Tails on the Egg Carrier, when it's switched around, fly to the top of the giant spinning thing in front of where the pool area is (the white-roofed building).

With any character (except for Big the Cat), you can get rings from the inside of the pool area on the high platforms on the Egg Carrier.
Black Chao
On the Egg Carrier, go to that area where amy was in prison. The cell next to it has ablack egg inside. You can't take this off the egg carrier so you must bring it to the eggcarrier garden. if you dont know where that is it's the doors with the letters in front, just jump on them to spell :eggman.
Chao Angel or Chao Devil
Chao Angel: To get a Chao Angel, you must feed it Hero Fruit until it goes into a cocoon. When it comes out, it will be white, with yellow wings, and sky blue \"dips\" on it\'s arms, feet, tail, and on the top of it\'s head.

Chao Devil:
Repeat the steps to an Angel Chao, but feed it Dark Fruit. When it comes out of the cocoon, it will be black with red dips, on it\'s arms, feet, and tail, it will have a spike ball on it\'s head, and an evil look on his face.
Easter Egg (Special thing within the game)
When you're playing as E-102 Gamma play the level "Hot Shelter". At the beginning or the end of the boss fight against E-105 Zeta you can see him up close. Around the bottom of him, there's a pattern of the colors "Purple and White". If you look at the white you can see that it's a Sega Dreamcast.
Easy way to beat 5 minute score on Casinopolis
Just play the pinball till you have about 450-500 rings, this should take about 3 mins and quite a lot of seconds. Quickly deposit your rings, climb up and whack the capsule!
Fast Sonic Stages A Rank (I am Talking About Sonic Adventure DX)
OK, On Sonic stages have you done his A rank stage (Complete the stage in one minute or something) and got so made that you blew up! Well that ends right now. Repetitively press the B Button to dash, you generally go faster than running and you can do the A rank missions!!!

Note: This does not work on Casinoplis
Note: This does not work if you don't have any skill!
find 3 emeralds within 1 minute
Knuckles' level A mission requires you to find 3 emerald fragments within 1 minute, this may sound impossible, but this little tip will help you find all 3 in a flash.

Begin the level and cruise about. Look for the emerlads, but do not get them! Once all 3 are found, restart the level and go to the places you went to before, and the emerald should be there, but not always.

Thanks to this method, I found the 3 pieces in 58 seconds on SPEED HIGHWAY.
Flying over the jungle
This might help you fly to your location in the jungle do you know that you come in a small carrige and when you arrive at the stand glide with knuckles or fly with tails you can either go to bigs house,the temple,and the cave.

P.S:try it with oter charaters.
glitch: 2 knuckles
You must have started super sonic's story.
Play as Knuckles and go to The Master Emerald
(near red mountain). Now walk around the area and u should see eggman and knuckles sleeping on the ground. Notice that the glitch knuckles is floating.
Gold Chao without years of training!
You know the place in start of the game where its Sonic VS Chaos 0? Go there and behind the stone wall there is a rock. Pick it up. Have you seen that place with the gold egg? It is in one of the buildings around the rock area. Go in, bick up the gold egg, and put it down. If you have the rock with you put it in the place of the golden egg. The bars will lift and you are free. Take the egg to Chao Garden and hatch your new Gold Chao.
Gold Chao!!
This Cheat can be done by anyone that can get into city hall.
In the library, there is a golden egg.
to get it, you have to find a rock shaped like an egg and then take it into the library. Then switch the gold egg for the rock. And then you have a very rare egg!
Icecap as first stage
Start a new game and unlock tails. Get the jet anklet because you can't make the fly without it. Now go to the Mistic Ruins and go on top of the train and stand on the edge of the train facing the two cliffs. Turn the camera mode to free. Now jump as high as you can and start flying near the 2 cliffs on the right. When you are in the middle of the 2 cliffs, start going straight between the cliffs. You should see the tunnel connecting the two cliffs which leads to the icecap. Fly straight into the tunnel wall. If you timed your jump and fly correctly you should make it through. Now go to the Icecap area and the door leading to it will be shut. To get through, go to the bottom of the hill until you get to the door that goes to red mountain. Go back up the hill flying. Then you go to the place where you would put the Ice stone into. Try to jump behind it. It will take a while. After a few tries you should go through the wall. When you do, fly IMMEDIATELY and go up. You should end up in the icecap area. When you finish the stage, the gate is still closed. Then you are trapped in there forever right? WRONG! There is actually a way out!! Go to the left side of the icecap door and fly without moving the controller stick. You will go through the ceiling. now go north and you should be on top of the tunnel. Fly to the entrance and when you land on the ceiling, you will go through it. Now you can leave. When you exit, the cave entrance will be blocked. All you have to do to get out is walk through the rock blocking your way. Then near the jungle entrance you should see knuckles standing there, but he won't fight you. All he does is stare into space, but you can still beat Tail's story. Just finish the first 2 stages and fight knuckles.
Jungle fishing lure
go to the jungle as Big. stay to the left until you see an tight opening to the right and there shold be a another lure for him.
Once you get to play with Knuckles choose him. I played the game and found out he was a lot easier to play with.
Knuckles drowns in mid air
Go to bigs tree house, go behind the dark part of the tree, climb on to it and keep climbing up and down until you hear a splash of water. Stay there until you hear the drowing music, when you die you should let go of the tree and drowin in mid air!
lion chao
Get a gold chao raise it normal but give it only lions {alot of lions!} it will have a red mane huge claws and a lion tail.

*note {and for some reason mine break dances}
Rings out of stages
To get some rings out of stages, follow these steps

Sonic: go to the hotel and press the switch for the rings to appear. Use light dash. Same thing for entrance to Casinopolis

Tails: cutting grass around your workshop using Rythemn Badge will produce rings

Knuckles: Digging in the grassy areas in Station Squares gives you rings.

Big: Casting your line in the watersa oth the sewers gives you rings.
Short Cut at Twinkle Park
With Sonic at Twinkle Park, right after you jump off the roller coaster try to avoid jumping in the hole that takes you down. Instead walk backwards on the tracks and keep walking until you fall. You'll land on a platform. Then you can jump to the other side and be already half way through the level.
Shortcut on Emerald coast
This is a wild cool cut on the beach level.When on the second part,run up the side of the cliff bit and grab the turbo shoes and run up more.Look for a tunnel and go through to boost about,and head back on track.Perfect if your trying to get a Level A.
Shortcut on Twinkle park
When you go round the castle top, spin dash up the slopey bit and jump, you should fly up to the capsule area.
Silver Chao!!!!
Go to the mystic ruins and go over by the waterfall. There is a small tablet about as big as Knux or bigger, to the right. Jump on the stone that is green and white that is on the right side. The egg will fall into the water. You can only pick it up with Tails, Sonic, Knux, or maybe Amy.

P.S.- You can only pick it up when it stops over by the ground. Don't go on the train with it or you'll lose it. You have to go to the Mystic Ruins chao garden.
Special Eggs
Shiny/rare eggs are quite expensive! Instead you can find some in the adventure fields!
Station Square- in the library there is an egg! to get it find a egg-shaped rock near the trees where you fought CHAOS ZERO and switch the egg with the rock!
Mystic Ruins- Go to where you fought CHAOS FOUR and there should be a bright thing that you can push in the wall, an egg should come out of the waterfall and you can pick it up as soon as it gets to the shore!
Egg Carrier- it should be in the prison cell near to where AMY was!

NOTE: If you travel by train/boat you will lose the egg and have to get it again, so you have to go directly to the chao garden there!
Tails in Emerald Coast
Go to the Hotel with Tails, exit into the pool area. Then turn right until you're under the little ledge. Start flying. After a little while, you go through the ledge. Fly behind the building and over to the Emerald Coast area.

Note: If Tails runs out of strength before you get there, you'll die. Land on the strip of land, and the screen will darken. Once it loads, you'll be on Emerald Coast with Tails! You can only go as far as the cave by the light house.
Enter the cave and you will see blue and a spring. After a few seconds the screen will darken again and you will appear right in front of the gate in front of Emerald Coast.

Characters Standing like Metal Sonic
First, go to the Egg carrier chao garden.
go to the top of that tower and stay there.

Secondley, go down the glass screen (about half way down) then see the glitche happen

I have only have this work with sonic and knuckles!

try all of them out to see!
Eveybody should remember this glitch, Bigger Jump!
Remember that part in Emerald Coast as Sonic when you're on the beach you go to the bridge and spin dash then jump on the ramp like part so you're now like 5 seconds ahead? It requires the bigger jump glitch. Easy, just spin dash before a ramp or ramp like piece, jump when on the edge of the ramp, blah blah blah. You performed the bigger jump glitch. Its not a great glitch but it comes in handy sometimes.
INSIDE the roof !?! :P
You have to have Tails to do this.

Go to the place where you got the jet anklet. Then go in the little doorway way and as soon as your in the right corner of the doorway then start flying. You'll soon fly up into the roof. If you stop flying you'll here a splash as if you landed back in the sewer. You will acually die after a couple seconds after you landed.
100% tested
Knuckles and Eggman
Can be done by: Tails, Sonic, Knuckles and E-102 Gamma
Upgrades needed: Jet Anklet (For Tails)
Progress in story needed: You need to start Super Sonics Story

Do the "Tails at the Master Emerald" glitch (FOR TAILS ONLY) then go over to where Knuckles and Eggman where in the cutscene in Super Sonic's story and they will still be there! This is very weird with Knuckles! Also with Knuckles, when you move a different movement (Up, Down, Left and Right) next to the other Knuckles his head will move. There are three movements, Head faceing floor, head facing towards the camera and he will also face towards the sky.
New glitches that I discovered!
As Sonic go to the moutain you run on to get an emblem in Mystic Ruins.
Get back and start a spin dash. Once you go, press B ASAP! You should be running. Go up, not right, and you should reach the top if you were sucsessful. You'll either fall off the mountain (too slow) or fall off the top and see the bridge the train goes through, you'll go through it (too fast) but if you want to go back, go through the mountain and you'll be back where you were.
As Knuckles, go to Red Mountain and find all the emeralds. Now jump and you'll be facing another way than your original pose. Note: you need to do a hint and chase it on last emerald. This works also after you beat Chaos 2.
As Tails, go to your work shop and fly to the wall on the staircase nearest to your work shop. You'll hit a wall, go to the road you go on in the Tornado 1 and you'll fly through the wall. Becareful not to fall! Also if you go to the ladder near the Ice Cap stage, fly as high as you can and when Tails stops, grab the ladder. Now keep climbing till you reach the end. Jump off, not grabbing any parts of the ladder, and you'll land on the ground while going to the Ice Cap stage.
Tails at the master emerald
Character: Tails
Upgrades needed: Jet Anklet
Camera View: Free Cam.

Go to the door that you open to go to Ice Cap Zone then go to the right just when you go through the door way. Fly up and move forward. The face left and fly, you will go through the wall and you will land on Angel Island. There is 2 ways of getting out: Go to the place where Red Mountain is and jump (you will lose a life.) Or the hard way: Go to the door , fly up and fing the exit (it is a wall that you go through)

Glitches and some Hazards
Glitch 1:
Go to the Egg Carrier Chao Garden and go to the tower thing behind the Chao Transporter (this only works with Sonic). Do you see a few flowers to your left? Walk into them and then you'll go up the tower thing! Cool, heh?

Glitch 2:
I don't know if this is a glitch, but it's cool. Go to the tower thing and run up it. When you're at the top, you'll be sliding down. Slowly at first. When you get to the red part (about half way), this is when the fun starts. You'll be sliding down the tower thing really fast and when you reach the bottom, you'll run for a bit. As far as I know, this only works for Sonic, Tails and Knuckles. Try with the other characters to see if it works for them as well.

And now for the Hazards:
The Chao Gardens are a safe place to be, right? They're not! You can drown in the Egg Carrier Chao Garden and the Mystic Ruins Chao Garden! In the Egg Carrier Chao Garden, go to where the water is deepest (any character except Big or E102 Gamma). You will know if the character has gone in deep enough when there's bubbles coming out of their mouth. After about a minute or two, the drowning music will play. The character will have 10 seconds to get out, but if you don't, then the character will have lots of bubbles coming out of their mouth and then lifelessly resurface. Dead. And to drown in the Mystic Ruins Chao Garden, go as Tails or Amy (I am not sure if this will work with any other characters) and go to where the water is deepest, by the waterfall. After some time, the drowning music will play. If you don't get out of the water within 10 seconds, the character will lose a life.
Having Trouble with Perfect Chaos?
Well, not anymore! After the name and Life Guage appear, push up on the Control Stick. Grab as many Rings as you can (rings are your Super Counter; as soon as you don't have any more, you lose your Super Form!). Dodge the liquified beast's blows, and use the Speed Boosts. When Sonic's aura is blue, run into Mr. I really want to destroy Earth again, and you'll go through his brain, and hurt him. Repeat twice more. The next form is HARD. Use Speed Boosts, and don't let Chaos hit you! *NOTE* The tornadoes he fires in the second battle easily stop you! Don't get hit, make sure your Ring Count is high, and beat the true ending, or... the Boss.
How to get a pefect chao without saving!
If you want a perfect chao without saving, then you must have Sonic Pinball Party for GBA and a link cable it works better with more than 1 person, hatch a chao egg, in the chao garden and name it whatever. Then you trade it to Sonic Pinball Party and get rings on the gameboy while someone else is going out of the chao garden safetly and getting rings and animals for the chao (i reccomend casinopolis) and then go back to the chao garden (this time bring a gold egg) because the shell is worth 250 rings and then get the chao back from the GBA game and make your chao kiss the animals, and with the rings buy a dark or hero fruit (hero makes it an angel and dark makes it a devil) and either fruit just keep feeding them to it until it appears in a cocoon and when it comes out it will be devil or angel (depends on the fruit you feed it) and then you repeat, if you get sick of playing sonic dx and want to turn it off and think ur chao will dissappear, well instead of destroying it just put it in Sonic Pinball Party and it will be there!

jump against the wall on the bottom-right corner
of the tunnel entrance and slip through the wall.

i found a bunch of glitches!!!!!

*game freeze glitch-as knuckles in twinkle park on the track,there are 2 enemies in black hovers.
kill one of them and jump in front of the hover.
the game will mysteriously automatically freeze!!!

*tails in twinkle park-do the same thing as knuckles in twinkle park,but when you slip in the door,DO NOT JUMP!!!!all you do is just keep on dying.

*other side of the sewer-as tails,grab the statue and go in the sewer place(near twinkle park).place the man in the right spot(this is gonna take a bunch of tries)in the bottom left corner of the gate.keep trying until you fall through the to get to the other side.

*disappearing act-do the other side of the sewer through the city background.go back in the sewer and ya know what........THE STATUE IS GONE!!!

*ghost train.......-as tails,grab the man and set him by the guy in the blue suit in the station square station.this may take a few tries.
use the rhythm badge between the statue and the will fall through the tracks.

these glitches are weird...............
Over the Line of Rings!
Going over the line of rings in 'Iceberg' mission mode is quite easy. All you need is an Action Replay, the moon jump code, and the turbo code.

Okay, first go throguh the whole level like you normally would. At the very end, (where the capsule is) try to go back up the mountain. Can't do it well, right? If you use the Turbo Code, You can get throguh the invisible barrier and in the area where you just boarded down. , once you do that, 'scale' the mountain using the Moon/Super Jump code. GO to the area where the wooden bridge is located. go to the very back of this bridge, and kick in the nitrox (turbo). When near the very, very end of the bridge (where the jump thingy is located) Super Jump off the slope, and you might just pass over the line of rings. Practice makes perfect, so don't give up trying if you don't make it the first couple of times.

100% tested by me!

Tails in Sonic's Speed Highway!
As Tails, go into Speed Highway. Go on the path the you'd normally take with Sonic. Once you get to the ramp that's above where Sonic would enter the building, get launched off the ramp and immediately start flying over towards the building that Sonic would enter to get to the next part of the level. Once you're in the building you should be able to see the ceiling for the part Sonic walks into. once you walk on a certain spot, you'll be taken to the 2nd part of Speed Highway where you're running down the building, except Tails will just fall down and eventually fall into the 3rd Area.

Now, notice that you still have the bar at the bottom of the screen that shows where you and Robotnik are with progression of the map. You'll be at the very start of the bar. You can get rid of that bar and give yourself unlimited time to explore the 3rd area as Tail if you die in the part where you fall down the building. To do this you simply need to get hit by a helicopter, then with out getting any more rings, get hit by another helicopter. You'll lose a lose, but then will appear at the beginning of the 2nd part of the level without a time limit!

Have fun exploring the higher areas of part 3 of Speed Highway as Tails!

unlock 2 player mode
Once you beat sonic's story mode, go back and play any level with tails again. Before the level starts, plug in a second controller and have someone holding it. When the level starts, if the second player moves the joystick or presses any button, you'll notice tails correspond to what you just did! That means that if someone's playing a sonic level, the second player can race against you as tails!!!

Note: Since playing as tails is only a small little bonus part in Sonic's game, it'll only show one big screen instead of splitting the screen for both the characters. It's still pretty cool, huh?
