Not only did my computer break, but also I had no money... but then suddenly less than a week before this game came out, I ran into some money, and my uncle who owns a computer store got me a working computer for free! So things fell into place for another great Angnix Sonic FAQs, except for the fact that since some nice snow made the roads bad the day the game hit the stores, I had to wait till the next day to finally get the game... heh, so maybe you can consider this FAQs to be one day later than it would have been anyway, oh well, that's Michigan weather for you. Anyway, this is a really fun game. Basically because of Eggman releasing the dark power of the Chaos Emeralds to release Dark Gaia, Sonic becomes a werewolf, or more properly known as the Werehog. During the day, he's his regular self and you can explore levels that are similar to past Sonic levels, only with some sidescrolling sections here and there. During the night however he transforms into the powerful Werehog featuring slower gameplay with platforming and beatem' up action. Version 0.4: Contains Basic info about the game, a lot needs to be added to make this a complete guide. Version 0.5: Boss descriptions added all the way up to Final Boss. Werehog's Powerups have been added Some of the Gaia Gate Puzzle Door Medal Requirements Version 0.51: Fixed Ranking Info for Werehog Stages Added new Mission types Version 0.52: General additions of info and fixing of boss section.

Version History ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 1. FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ There are just certain questions that keep coming up again and again and again about this game I want to make clear at the beginning. Remember, there is more guide after this section!!! Q. What versions does this guide apply to? A. The Wii/PS2 version. There are significant differences between this version and the Xbox360/PS3 version including: Addition of Mazuri Day and Night Stages and a level called Empire City Sun and Moon Medals scattered through the stages Hub areas Q. I quit playing the game, when I come back to the game, where do I go? A. Remember what stage you left off on and select it from the stage menu, or go back through the last Gaia Gate you when through. Q. I am looking for items, and it says an item is 1st Continent Gaia Gate or Villager and I already have all of them! A. First Continent refers to both Apotos and Mazuri, so you need to search both areas. Q. The villager won't give me an item! A. Talk to the villager more than once. Q. Where are the keys in the Werehog sections? A. I still need to map these out, when I'm finished with the Walkthrough section. Q. There is a part in the 7th Continent's get to the Goal level I can't pass because I bounce off a wall in a narrow space. A. You need to use Walljump, which is not explained in the game except in a mission that is not part of the story. Press the control stick toward the wall, and press A, then do the same higher up. Also there are alternate routes in this level and it's possible to skip the walljump sections completely. Q. How do I do the spindash start with a controller other than the Wii? A. I don't know... Q. Where is the 69th and last Moon Medal? A. Find 150 Items to unlock 69th Moon Medal Mission, all except the last movie and all S-rank to unlock the Last Moon Medal Mission. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 2. Story: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ (From the booklet) A blue whirlwind flashed into view of the gargantuan battle fleet, and began a hasty but destructive path to the central fortress where Dr. Eggman awaited. In what was to be their final showdown, Sonic harnessed the power of the Chaos Emeralds and transformed into Super Sonic, dealing destructive blows to Dr. Eggman's precious machinery. However, unbeknownst to Sonic, he'd run head first into Dr. Eggman's most devious trap so far. Sonic was suddenly surrounded by a high energy shield, which stripped him of his Super Sonic powers, while simultaneously robbing him of the Chaos Emeralds. Dr. Eggman had anticipated Sonic's transformation from the outset, and saw this as the perfect opportunity to procure the Emeralds. Dr. Eggman then, from the safety of his control panel, reversed the polarity of the Chaos Emeralds releasing the dark energy within. The energy was then fired as a powerful beam toward the world. With a roar, the world was ripped into seven continents, which floated around the core. From the aftermath of this destruction, the colossal beast Dark Gaia awoke from a very long slumber. Dr. Eggman had planned to exploit Dark Gaia as a means of taking over the world. However, Dark Gaia was not the only beast unleashed. Due to his proximity to the Chaos Emeralds as the dark energy was expelled, Sonic underwent a new transformation. His muscular density increased, his claws sharpened, his teeth grew into fangs and his body became covered with a lush heavy fur. Sonic had transformed into a Werehog. His business with Sonic having now concluded, Dr. Eggman felt no remorse in ejecting Sonic and the spent Emeralds out of the air lock and into the darkness of space. Sonic soon found himself plummeting to one of the continents of the fragmented world's surface. After colliding with a colossal bang, Sonic discovered an imp-like creature nearby that had lost all memory of who he was. Sonic, assuming he was responsible, befriended the creature and nicknamed him "Chip" on account of his insatiable appetite for deserts. As Sonic comes to terms with his own mysterious transformation, he must also figure out a way to restore the continents of the planet to their rightful positions. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3. Characters: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ (from the booklet) Sonic the Hedgehog: Sonic is the world's fastest supersonic hedgehog, and values freedom and life by his own rules above everything else. His is kind at heart, but can be short tempered and is quick to throw himself into the middle of trouble without a second thought, remaining steadfast to the end. His personality is a juxtaposition of kindness and ferocity, as on the one hand he does all in his power to snuff out evil, but he also can't look away when somebody else is in trouble. Sonic hates boredom and being tied down, so much of his time is spent running toward the next danger or adventure. Sonic the Werehog: As a side effect of Dr. Eggman's latest foibles, Sonic now undergoes an extreme physical transformation whenever the sun goes down, but his heart remains the same. Almost. Sonic the Werehog is still willing to put his life on the line for his friends without any due consideration, but his dedication to helping his new friend regain his memory is in no small part out of guilt that it was his own fall from space that caused the problem in the first place. As a Werehog, Sonic is not as fast as his usual self, but he makes up for it with ferocious combat techniques. His powerful arms are able to stretch allowing him to attack enemies from a greater distance, and to reach distant ledges, poles and bars with ease. Chip: In a classic scenario of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, Chip lost his memory after Sonic's fall from outer space. As he no longer knows who he is or where he came from, he decides to join Sonic on his world adventure to try to discover his identity. In this game, Chip will also serve as a guide, giving you various hints along the way. Dr. Eggman (A.K.A. Dr. Robotnik) An evil scientific genius who boasts an IQ of 300. By skillfully luring Sonic right into a most devious trap, he was able to successfully awaken Dark Gaia. But will he be equally successful in taking over the world? (And other familiar characters from the Sonic Universe also appear in this game) ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4. Sonic Newcomers Guide: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ For Sonic Newcomers: Many things in this game are very familiar to people who play a lot of Sonic games both new and classic, but now I will for those that haven't played a Sonic game up until now. Most of the general info below can be applied to almost any normal Sonic game from Sonic 1 made all the way back in 1991 to the present. Know your enemy: Dr. Eggman, also called Dr. Ivo Robotnik, a mad scientist with dreams of taking over the world. Since the first Sonic Game, he has been trying to get his hands on the powerful Chaos Emeralds. If Eggman gets a hold of the Chaos Emeralds and controls them properly, he could take over the world. The mad doctor traps innocent small animals inside robots often called Badniks to try to stop Sonic from ruining his plans. That is the reason why small animals pop out of his robots when you destroy them in most games. Running and Spinning: Speed is the focus of a Sonic game usually, and often the faster you run, the more points you earn. Read the moves section to find out the fine art of spinning various ways. But be careful! You are vulnerable to Badniks when you run, so you need to spin jump or spin in general to kill them! In this game, most enemies appear in the form of monsters and such. Basic In-Level Things: Some basic things have been in a basic Sonic level from day 1... Springs: Bouncy things that send you through the air, but not spinning, so don't hit enemies. Loops-de-loops: Sonic had always been running through crazy loops in the course... Spikes: Whether they are just stationary or they are going in and out of the ground, ouch they hurt! Rings: Mysterious, floating, spinning gold colored Rings seem to hang out everywhere in the Sonic World. Collect 100 of them and you earn an Extra Life and they are worth points also(most games, not this one). But a Ring is more than a random thing to collect. If you are hit by a Badnik, spikes, boss or something else that isn't Instant Death (explained below), then you loose all of the Rings you are holding and Rings go bouncing around everywhere, but at least you didn't die! Try to pick up as many Rings again as you can, because the dropped Rings will start to fade away. (Only applies to the Day stages in this game) But if you are hit by one of these objects and you have no Rings, you will die! Item Boxes: You will also find tv monitors (in some games bubbles)you can smash. These give you various things, the most basic item box items are: Rings: It's nice when you can smash a monitor and get lots of Rings at once instead of having to collect a lot of single Rings. Shields (Barriers): These nice bubbles protect you from losing your Rings one time, but then you loose your shield. Sometimes shields do other things, like attract Rings. (Not in this game) Invincibility: Stars or a rainbow burst (depending on game) protect you from everything that would cause loss of Rings or death without Rings for a short period of time. (not in this game) Remember, you can still die from Instant Death things, explained below. Super Shoes: In most games allow you to run faster. (Not in this game) Death: As explained in the Rings sections, a Ring is the best way to avoid loosing a life. If you have extra lives, then you start at either the beginning of the level or If you touched a Checkpoint you start there. If you don't, Game Over! There are certain things that will kill you instantly no matter how many Rings you have or even if you have an Invincibility item, they are: Bottomless pits, fall into the nothingness at the bottom of the screen and you are dead. Crushing: The pressure of being pressed against two objects is just too much... Drowning: Sonic can only live 30 seconds underwater and he can't swim! A countdown begins from 5 when you are close to drowning, either get out of the water, or find rising air bubbles from the ground and breathe one in. Special Stage and Chaos Emeralds: The most mysterious objects of them all, in most games you can enter the Special Stage to try to earn them (see Emeralds section for this game). Chaos Emeralds have mysterious powers... not much is known about them, but often something very special happens when Sonic has all 7... If you do not collect all of the Chaos Emeralds and you beat the game, you get a message to go and collect them all and what turns out to be sometimes a not-so-good ending to the game. (In this game, the Chaos Emeralds are gained through the game) ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 5. Menu, Stages and Moves ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ You can play this game with the Wii Remote + Nunchuk, the Classic Controller, or a Gamecube Controller Menu Controls: Make Selection- Wii: Pointer Classic: L stick Gamecube: Control Stick PS2: Directional Buttons Accept- Wii: A button Classic: a button Gamecube: A button PS2: X button Cancel- Wii: B button Classic: b button Gamecube: B button PS2: O button Pause Menu: Open/Close Pause Menu- Wii: + button Classic: +/start Gamecube: start/pause PS2: start button ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 5.a. Acts and Missions ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Acts are larger missions that are ranked and you get Sun and Moon medals according to rank. Missions are shorter, have a certain objective such as gathering rings, etc... and you earn a medal just for completing it. You get Moon Medals for Day Missions and Sun Medals for Night Missions (don't ask me why, that's just the way it is). There are also Bosses that you can earn one metal if you beat it in time. They are split up into Day and Night Acts and Missions as explained below, they have quite different gameplay. Here are the types of Missions: Go for the Goal: Day stage, followed up by a couple of missions. Just head for the Goal. Acts: Night stages just head for the Goal. Bosses: Day and Night, you earn one metal for S-rank, then it goes all the way down to C rank with no medal. Control Mission: Learn to use a move in the game Time Attack Mission: Head for the Goal in a certain amount of time. There are no lives, but there are checkpoints that add seconds to the clock. You don't want to really die in these missions however, you end up loosing too much time. Collect Rings: Collect a certain number of Rings in a certain amount of time. The Mission ends when you collect the number of Rings or time is up. Unschaved: Head to the Goal Ring with no Rings Don't Smash Anything: Don't break any breakable objects, there is a time limit. Find the Treasure: Find all 5 special objects in the allotted time. Limited Health: a night mission where you start with only a small amount of health. Battle Royale: A night mission, defeat a certain number of baddies. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 5.b. Sonic the Hedgehog (Day Stages) ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Basically, the Day stages are superspeed action through 3D and sidescrolling environments. You earn Moon Medals for different Ranks and completing Missions. First of all are the different gauges and thingies on the screen: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 5.b.1. Gauges ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Top Left Corner: Lives Remaining, you get 2 lives to complete the stage unless you pick up Extra Lives in the Puzzle rooms at the Gaia Gates which are explained later in this guide (Acts/Bosses Only) Below Life Gauge: Target Time, A time and a Rank will appear on the gauge, finish the level within that time to earn either an S, A, B, or C rank. The ranks go down in order when you go over the times. The higher the rank, the more Medals you get, 3 Medals for S, 2 for A, 1 for B and 0 for C. Below Target Time: Elapsed Time, how much time you have already spent in the level. (Acts Only) Lower Left: Number of Rings Below Ring Counter: Boost Gauge Upper Left in Missions: Time Remaining Upper Right in some Missions: Rings Collected/Needed ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 5.b.2. Rings ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Rings work differently in the day and night stages. In the Day stages, Rings help protect you from getting hit, if you don't have Rings when hit you will die. You loose the amount of Rings that will send you down one Boost Level (see boost gauge section in Moves) when hit. Rings also help fill your Boost Gauge. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 5.b.3. Moves ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Spindash Start- Wii: Shake Wii remote before the countdown reaches 1 Start the level with a spindash Move/Brake- Wii: Control Stick Classic: L Stick Gamecube: Control Stick PS2: Left analogue stick Use the control stick to allow Sonic to run. He gradually gains speed, and he runs faster with more Rings. Pressing the opposite direction will make him brake. Quick Step- Wii: B button Classic: L or R Gamecube: L or R PS2: L1 or R1 Press and hold above button and then use either left and right on the control stick when on the ground or up and down when running on a wall (The only way to adjust your course on a wall) to quickly move over. Quick Jump/Spin Attack- Wii: A button Classic: b button Gamecube: A button PS2: X button Tap for a shorter Jump, hold longer for a higher jump. When using the higher jump you can attack enemies. Wall Jump- Wii: A button and left or right Classic: b button and left or right Gamecube: A button and left or right PS2: X button and left or right Use left or right and the A button to jump off a wall in narrow places. Only happens in the sidescrolling areas. Crouch/Slide- Wii: Z button Classic: y button Gamecube: B button PS2: [] button Standing still, press the button to crouch, then using the control stick you can make Sonic crawl. When he is moving, press to make Sonic slide. Sonic Drift- Wii: Z + control left/right Classic: y + left/right Gamecube: B + left/right PS2: [] + left/right Use this button combo for tight corners and help boost your Boost Gauge Homing Attack- Wii: shake wii remote while in the air Classic: b or x while in the air Gamecube: A, X or Y while in the air PS2: X button while in the air When in the air, a curser will appear on homing attackable items, shake the wii remote or press the correct button to do a homing attack. Action Chains are doing several Homing Attacks in a row and you get your Boost Gauge filled. Lightspeed Dash- Wii: shake wii remote near a line of Rings Classic: x shake wii remote near a line of Rings Gamecube: X or Y shake wii remote near a line of Rings PS2: O button near line of rings When you get near a line of Rings, shake the Wii Remote or press a button to do a Lightspeed Dash and quickly dash along the lines of Rings. Sonic Boost and Boost Gauge- Wii: Shake the Wii remote Classic: x Gamecube: Y PS2: O button Your Boost Gauge is on the lower left side of the screen. It starts off with three bars, and each 30 Rings boosts and increases your running speed up to a maximum of 6 bars. Everytime you loose Rings, you go down a Boost Level (You can even have a couple hundred Rings and your level will still go down and you will loose the amount of Rings to that level (60). Fill the Boost gauge with Rings, Action Chains and Drifting. The gauge shows how much Boost you have, use the controls above to activate Sonic Boost and you will dash forward at a high speed for a limited amount of time when you have at least one bar on the Boost Gauge Glowing. When you level up every 30 Rings, your Boost Gauge will automatically fill up, other than that I think it's about 14 Rings for each section. Be careful where you boost or you might dash yourself off a cliff! Note that when you boost, you gather Rings in a wider area, very useful. Jump Dash/Boost in air- Same controls as above while in the air. If you boost meter is empty, you will Jump Dash in the air. If it has at least one bar, you will Boost in mid-air. You might want to use this move to reach some Boost Rings. Stomping- Wii: B or Z while in the air Classic: y button while in the air Gamecube: B button while in the air PS2: [] while in the air Use stomp to get through fragile floors. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 5.b.4. Gimmicks ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Gimmicks are various things in-level that help you move forward in general, here are the more common ones: Grind Rail: Hop on for a fast ride Dash Panel: Sends Sonic dashing in a certain direction Springs: Send you bouncing, you can Homing Attack them. Ramp: Launches you in the air. Speed Ring: Orange ones launch you a short distance, Rainbow ones a longer distance. Crane Lift: Homing Attack the handle to be lifted up. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 5.b.5. Results Screen ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ After a level, a results screen will appear with time completed each section of the level, and what Rank you have received, which is determined by how fast you beat the level. Then you will get Moon Medals based on Rank, three for S, two for A, one for B, zero for C, or one Moon Medal for a Mission completed. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 5.b.6. Gameplay Tips ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ S-rank tips: There are huge shortcuts in each level. They are often harder to get to places, but they cut off a lot of time. Use boost a lot, but not in areas that will kill you, get to know the level first, but you will have to use it as much as you can. Boost through enemies instead of Homing attack, except when you need them to get to a higher place. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 5.c. Sonic the Werehog (Night Stages) ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ These stages are much slower than the Day stages, and feature slower platforming and beatem' up action against many enemies. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 5.c.1. Gauges ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Top Left Corner: Lives Remaining, you get 2 lives to complete the stage unless you pick up Extra Lives in the Puzzle rooms at the Gaia Gates which are explained later in this guide. Below Life Gauge: Elapsed Time Bottom Right: Life Gauge(how much you can get hit before dying) and Unleashed Gauge (how much you can used Unleashed mode.) Top Right: Combo count Bottom Right: Map ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 5.c.2. Rings ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Rings work differently in the Day and Night stages.

Gimmicks: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Breakable Objects- Some small objects such as plants, vases and jars can be broken open in order to obtain one red or blue orb. Switch- Comes in two varieties, green switches can simply be pressed, while blue switches need a box set on top of them to stay down. Horizontal Poles- Grab a pole and keep pressing the Grab button. If you have the Wii Remote you will have to shake it to cause him to swing. Either let go of Grab to let go, or keep pressing Grab, press Jump so you can grab the next pole Vertical Poles- (Wii controls only listed in booklet, I don't know the controls for the other controllers) Shake Wil remote and Nunchuk to climb the pole. Letting go of the Grab button will cause you to descend. Press Jump to jump off it. Spinning Poles- Wii: Move Wii Remote to start spinning Classic: L stick to start spinning Gamecube: control stick to start spinning Grab, Start spinning, then press the direction you want to get off in, then press the jump button to jump off. Hanging Ledge- Grab, then either move sideways or let go of the grab button to drop, or climb up with the up button when you can. When on top of a ledge, move left and right.

Results Screen ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ You will be given a Rank depending on Time, Rings and Force Collected (Red Orbs). If you meet the Targets for all three, you get an S rank, target times for two, an A rank, target times for one a B rank. Medals however are rewarded for each section separately. Where you are looking at the Stage Screen, you will see slots for three medals. The first one is for meeting the Target Time, the second Medal rewarded for reaching the target Rings, the Third Medal rewarded for reaching the Target Force. So you can get all three medals without an S-rank if you repeat the level and focus on a different thing. Next is the Orb Results screen. Your Orbs are added up, and if you gain enough of them, you might either increase your Vitality gauge, Combat level, Attack power or learn a new attack skill. I will have these attacks listed out in a future version of this guide. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 5.c.8. Gameplay Tips ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ General Tips: Kill enemies that have green orbs last so you can heal during battle, for example the flying enemies and wizards. There are breakable walls and doors in the first part of the first Chun- nan level with goodies inside. Time Medal: Dash a lot and don't go into extra areas of the levels, just go straight on through. You can die as much as you want, but it will eat up a little time at least. Rings Medal: Explore every area of the level and you should find enough Rings. Don't worry about dying or getting hit, you still keep all your Rings. Force Medal: Explore the stage for those hidden Red Orb capsules. Don't worry about dying. If you are short on force, let the blue wizards or Big Mother spew out extra enemies for you. S-rank: Memorize where force and rings are in the stage, and dash while getting them. Time is pretty forgiving, but often you will need all the force and rings you can find. Also follow above tips. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 6. Boss Tips ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Might contain Spoilers Boss: Egg Beetle Continent: Mazuri Type: Day S Rank/Medal Time: 2'20'00 This boss has a force field around the cockpit, you hit the boss when the force field is down, during the second attack explained below. 3D part: First Attack: Boss sends out cubes that slowly roll around, dodge them or use Quick Step to get out of their way. Second Attack: The claws of the Beetle become electrified and it tries to pinch you. Jump up before it can pinch you, and you will see a Homing Attack cursor appear! Attack while you can. These two attacks will repeat once, then it sidescrolls. Sidescroll part: Third Attack: Boss fires Missiles at you that stay at the left of the screen for a while, then come at you. The proper time to jump in order to avoid them is when the bottom missile comes at you. Fourth Attack: Boss tries to pinch you from the side, same evasion as the second attack, but you cannot hit the boss. 3D: Boss pinch attack, then back to sidescroll if you don't hit the boss, goes back to 3D if you do. Boss continues in this fashion, except during the second sidescroll part the boss does two pinch attacks in a row you have to jump over in quick succession. S-rank tip: Hit the boss every opportunity you get. Boss: Dark Gaia Phoenix Continent: Chun-nan Type: Night S Rank/Medal Time: 5'00'00 Basically you are in a circular arena. Around the edges are platforms. In order to attack the boss, you will need to first put out it's fire. To do that, grab onto the platform's edge with B then use up to climb up. Up here, you will find a water barrel, throw this at the boss. You will find that later on, the number of barrels you will have to throw in order to put out the fire increases to 2 then 3. Then the boss moves to the center of the stage. Start attacking. Eventually you will see a Wii command come up on the screen (not sure what buttons on other controllers) shake the will remote and nunchuk alternately in a combo to get the maximum number of hits you can! Boss Attacks: Feathers that come at you are easy to avoid by running away, but if they hit they set you on fire a short period of time. After attacking the boss, it will slam into the ground and produce a damaging shockwave, try to jump to avoid it. S-rank tip: Get the Combos correct for more damage. Boss: Egg Devil Ray Continent: Spagonia Type: Day S Rank/Medal Time: 3'40'00 Like the first boss, the cockpit is surrounded by a forcefield and you attack when the field is down. There is a 3D part, a sidescroll part and a top view part. 3D part: First Attack: Various lasers are fired off to the sides, to avoid stay centered with the boss. Soon after this attack, the forcefield goes down, jump and Homing Attack the boss. Sidescroll: Second Attack: This one is kind of hard to avoid, the robots incircle you and spin around lasers. Don't stand at the edge of the screen, push a little left so you can jump over the lasers easier. The forcefield is down on the boss, so jump over a laser and Homing Attack. Now the boss goes through another 3D part and Sidescroll part like above, now for the Top View. Topview: Third Attack: Lasers off to the side, but now small bullets are coming at you, dodge carefully. Don't run too close to the boss, you can push back on the control stick to back up. There is a brief window to attack the boss soon, but if you don't take it quickly enough, the lasers will fire a wide beam right down the center of the screen, so be careful! Then boss alternates. S-rank tip: Hit the boss every opportunity you get the first time. Boss: Dark Moray Continent: Holoska Type: Night S Rank/Medal Time: 5'00'00 You find yourself in a circular room, with the boss in the middle surrounded by a forcefield. To get to the Boss first you have to attack and destroy 4 pairs of purple tubes. There are a few enemies down here, but no orbs in them. Now the forcefield is down, head to the heart of the Boss and start attacking like crazy! Sometimes the boss will drop cylinders, grab and throw at the boss to freeze him. The Boss has several attacks, but if you are attacking the boss, they will probably not hit you badly. After attacking the boss for a while, you will be thrown out of the boss area, the forcefield will go up again, and you will have to destroy the purple tubes again. His attacks are: Blue Energy Ball: Large ball that will freeze you if it hits, and turns into spikes when it lands. If you are frozen, the Wii controls are to alternate shaking the Nunchuck and Remote up and down to free yourself. If the spikes are in the way attack them. During the third time you are in the circular part destroying purple tubes, this boss will use this attack on you from behind the forcefield. Ice Beam: Directs a beam toward the ground, that can freeze you and makes spikes. Slam Attack: Appears the third time against the boss, boss will slam to the ground. You might have to quickly get out of the way if you are attacking the boss. Spinning Attack: Hard to avoid, the boss slams to the ground and spins around, probably knocking you back. S-rank Tip: Pretty easy if you focus on attacking the boss despite damage, and maybe using more powerful moves. Boss: Dark Guardian Continent: Shamar Type: Night S Rank/Medal Time: 5'00'00 Basically this is a beatem, up in it's pure form, just attack when you can. Here are the boss's attacks: Punch: Boss will punch out with his fist, duck to avoid. Twirl: Boss will twirl around, doesn't do any damage, but will stun you. Shake the Wii remote and nunchuk to unconfuse yourself. Teleport: Sometimes the boss will teleport to the top of a staircase and create lighting bolts in front of him, easy to avoid if you stay back. Club: He will try to hit you with his giant club. S-rank tip: There are plenty of Rings to heal you, go for it and attack the boss without worrying about getting hit yourself. Pretty easy to S- rank. Boss: Egg Lancer Continent: Adabat Type: Day S Rank/Medal Time: 3'30'00 Like the other Sonic bosses, there is a forcefield surrounding the cockpit, attack when the forcefield is down. 3D part: First attack: Missiles hit the ground leaving fiery pillars in their wake, duck the fires, or use Quick Step. Sideview: Second attack: Green lasers will fire through the wall, use up, down, left and right to duck, pretty easy. Third attack: Boss stomps the wall, sending rocks tumbling down, you will have to swerve all directions to avoid them. At one point, a rock hits the boss, Boost to do some damage at this point! Topview: Like the topview part of the Egg Devil Ray, except early on you will see the claws I guess they are of the boss spread apart, this is a chance to attack the boss! Walljump: Now is the tough part... you will end up hitting jump pads on the side of a cliff. Pay attention to the button combos because if you get them wrong, you die! After you have entered the button combos correctly, you automatically hit the boss for tons of damage!!! Second 3D part: After the missiles, the boss gains an attack where it charges at you to one side, easy to duck. The next parts cycle through as above S-rank tip: Attack every chance you get the first time Boss: Egg Dragoon Continent: Eggmanland Type: Night S Rank/Medal Time: 7'00'00 Basically with this Boss, you are on a circular platform with the boss hovering around it just beyond. Attack the boss when he is at the edge of the platform, usually after he attacks by jumping up and attacking at the same time the blue glowing spot, making the boss fall where you can attack it more. After damaging the boss a certain amount, the platform breaks and you fall downward toward another platform. During your fall, you can grab lines of Rings to help restore your health. First Platform: First Attack: Fireballs, just run away to escape. If you hit you you catch on fire for a short period of time and can't move. Second Attack: Blue Energy Ball, same attack that Dark Moray has. Dash in order to escape it. Second Platform: Blue Energy Ball attack one after another, platform smaller. Third Platform: Platform smaller. New Attack: He will swipe a lance at you that is electrified, if you get hit by it it will confuse you and damage you a lot. In order to avoid it, double jump when he is about to swing. S-rank tip: Attack all you can! I did this boss in less than 5 minutes without many special moves at all. *Final Boss Details ahead* Boss: Dark Gaia Continent: Eggmanland Type: Day S Rank/Medal Time: 7'30'00 The final fight is split into three parts. Unlike the other bosses where death means you have to start completely over, in this boss when you die you get to start in the part you died in, even though your time doesn't go back down. To get a better chance at completing this boss, gather more lives in the Gaia Gate Puzzle Rooms (See Gaia Gate section for more details). First part: Dark Gaia vs. the Gaia Colossus You control the Gaia Colossus, which is basically this thing made out of temples... it's kind of strange. Anyway this is like a boxing match between you and the boss! You will have a health gauge like in the Night levels. Here are the controls for the Wii Remote and Nunchuck: Control Stick Left: dodge left Control Stick Right: dodge right Control Stick Back: dodge back Shake Wii Remote: right punch Shake Nunchuk: left punch Shake both at same time: Double handed attack Note; the Double handed attack takes longer to execute but does more damage. The boss's attacks: Right or Left swipe Double arm attack, Dark Gaia tries to grab you and you have to shake the remote to try to get out of his grasp. He will also regain some of his health. Guarding, you can't hit the boss. Strategy: It's stupid to punch when the boss is guarding. When the boss swipes from the left side of the screen, dodge to the left. When the boss swipes right, dodge right. After dodging, you will have just enough time for a one handed attack! Just as the boss starts his two handed attack, you will have enough time to deal a two handed attack if you react quickly enough! Second part: Sonic level, this is similar to a Sonic day level, basically jump over purple things. After a short course, you will come to a screen with button combos, press the right combo and you attack the boss, the wrong combo and you die! You will have to go through three short courses. Third part: Super Sonic!!! Controls: Control stick to move in any direction B button to dash When gauge has at least one bar glowing and you see a lock on-curser, shake wii remote to dash Basically the first part is to avoid the bosses swiping motion attack and to gather Rings. Like other Super Sonic battles, Sonic will slowly loose Rings so be careful, you will loose even more Rings when the boss hits you of course! You will see a bit of a warning swipe before the actual attack and you will have just enough time to dash and avoid. To avoid the huge swipe attack, get in the center of the screen right below the boss's head. To attack the boss, wait till a homing cursor appears on one of it's eyes and then Homing Attack. You can only attack if there is at least one glowing bar on the Boost Meter, grab Rings to make a bar glow. You loose one bar's worth of Rings when you attack. To make the cursor appear sooner, make sure to line up with the eye by staying on one side of the screen or the other. You will have to dodge rocks, but this is pretty easy, then ram into the eye. If you hit a rock, you simply don't get a hit in. Beware, when you attack the boss, you loose Rings, so you want to be gathering Rings between attacks. Later on, the boss will fire dark spheres at you. Press A(for the Wii) if the sphere is coming at you at the correct time and you will throw it back at the boss, if you throw enough back, you will stun the boss. Try rapidly tapping A when the energy ball comes at you, it seems to work every time. Use time when the boss is stunned to gather more rings. S-rank tips: Quickly get through everything, line up with the eyes. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 7. Enemies ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Various enemies will try to get in your way. During Day stages, they are Eggman's robots. During night stages various creatures (with a couple of random fan robots here and there). Here are the various enemies to deal with during the day and night stages: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 7.a. Day Stage Enemies ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Listed in order they appear in the enemy art section. Thunderball: Little bluish-green enemies that sometimes put up an electric shield that you cannot touch without getting hurt. There is only one time I can think of you might want to consider trying to Homing Attack them when the shield is down to find a huge shortcut, in Shamar if I remember correctly. Aero-Cannon: Gun-looking blue thing. Watch out for the missiles, and Homing Attack when you are near. Mole Cannon: White on the ground. They fire bullets at you, you have to wait till they pop out of the ground to homing attack. Interceptor: A large greenish robot with two arms that appears in a couple levels. When the two arms are in the center, run off to the side, when at the sides, run in the center. Attack it when it is in front of you by using a Boost, but you don't have to attack it to get through this section of the level. Aero-Chaser: A large eggmanlike robot that is in front of you, either fires a wide beam you have to Quick Step away from, or Missiles you have to jump over. Egg Shooter: These pinkish enemies fire missiles, Homing Attack when you are close enough. Egg Fighter: This Generic Eggman robot is easy to Homing Attack. Egg Fighter Spring: A Generic Eggman robot with a spring on it's shield, you can't destroy them, use as an ordinary spring. Egg Fighter Knight: Has a sword and shield, sometimes electrified, it's best to avoid them. Egg Fighter Shield: Remove the shield by Homing Attacking, then Homing Attack again, but it's best to Boost right through them. Egg Blizzard: This blue fan enemy emits a freezing beam. If you are frozen, wait till you are unthawed. Homing Attack. Egg Flame: Red fan enemies that shoot out Fire. Homing Attack. Electro-spinner: These greenish flying enemies are your basic harmless Homing Attack objects. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 7.b. Night Stage Enemies ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Egg Blizzard: This blue fan enemy emits a freezing beam. If you are frozen, wiggle the wii remote (or whatever the other controller controls are) to escape earlier. Attack directly, contains blue and red orbs. Egg Flame: Red fan enemies that shoot out Fire. Attack directly. Contains blue and red orbs. Egg Typhoon: Green fan enemies emit fierce winds, Attack directly. Contains blue and red orbs. Dark Bat Sniper: This pink flying enemy emits pink energy balls. If you try to grab it, you will just swing from it. Jump and swat down. Contains red and green orbs. Dark Bat: These bluish flying enemies are there only to grab and take for a ride. If you destroy one, which is not recommended, I think they contain red and green orbs like other flying enemies. Thunder Bat: Green flying enemies, they sometimes emit a forcefield that will confuse you if you get hit, or they will shoot electricity at you causing the same effect. If you try to grab them, you just swing, there is only one point in the game you will have to do this, don't hold on to them very long! Swat down when they are not electrified. Contains red and green orbs. Killer Bee: Comes in different colors that vary in health. Totally ungrabbable. They dodge you when you try to attack, and sting quickly. It's best to throw crates or other enemies at them. Contains blue and red orbs. Spike: These one-eyed bombs will start counting down when touched or hurt. It's best to be far away when they blow up, so try picking them up and throwing them at a wall or other enemies. Don't contain orbs. Dark Master: Not sure which one they are trying to describe in game, there is a purple wizard that just straight attacks you, and a blue wizard that doesn't attack, but summons more enemies to attack you. Grab and throw, or attack directly. Contains green and red orbs. Tip: if you need more Force for an S-rank, let the blue wizard summon more critters. Fire Master: Red wizards, they are on fire and try to charge directly at you. Throwing a water barrel at them makes them attackable and confuses them. Attack directly or grab and throw when they are like this. Eventually they will retreat and stay still for a short period of time, catching themselves on fire again. Contains red and green orbs. Lightning Master: Green Wizards, they will throw electric balls at you, confusing you. Attack directly or grab and throw. A water barrel will instantly kill them. Contains red and green orbs. Nightmare: Your basic grunt baddies. Come in blue and red varieties, the red ones having more health. Attack directly before they attack you. Must be confused to grab and throw. Contains red and blue orbs. Deep Nightmare: Bigger than Nightmares, have more health and can guard against attacks, come in red and blue varieties. Contains red and blue orbs. Big Mother: A huge giant that spits out smaller enemies, has lots of health. Watch out for a slam attack that will send you flying. Best to fight it in Unleashed mode, and Unleashed combo will do it in quickly. Contains red and green orbs. Little Rex: A little enemy that has a big mouth, comes in blue and red varieties. Attack directly. Contains red and blue orbs. Dark Fright: These little round enemies come in blue or red. They bounce around and are easy to grab and throw, easier in fact to grab than to attack directly. Contains blue and red orbs. Titan: A giant enemy with a large club. Will try to clobber you with it or swings it around quickly. A combo in Unleashed mode will do it in quickly. Contains red and green orbs. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 8.

You need medals to open up these rooms. This item opens up a new Secret Mission. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 8.a. Item Gathering tips ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Talk to villagers more than once to get the villager items. Items love to hide behind boxes or other breakable objects. You can lose lives and still keep items. Look up and down... up for ledges, down for mysterious holes. During Day stages, most items are in the hardest to reach part of the levels. Explore every part of the level. Stop often and just look around, you might see an item in the distance, or notice something funny and out of the ordinary. The Secret Document Tips can help a lot. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 9. Villages, Gaia Gate and World Map: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ These are the key to traveling around to different levels, here's an explanation. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 9.a. Villages: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Basically you talk to different people in the different places in the village in order to progress through the story, or they will give you Tablets to open stages in the Gaia Gate, or put together a Planet Tablet that leads to a Boss. At the top is you destination, where you need to go. Top right is the option to change the village from day to night, if you can. Villagers will say different things during the day or night. Bottom left is the choice to go back to the World Map or exit the game if World Map is not available yet. Bottom is Next Destination Destinations where you can talk to Villagers appear all over. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 9.b. Gaia Gate: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ The Gaia Gate contains several doors and later a teleportation room to other Gaia Gates. Doors with a Sun Symbol lead to Day stages and you will need a Sun Tablet to open them, obtained during the Story. Doors with a Moon Symbol lead to Night stages and you will need a Moon Tablet to open them, obtained during the Story. Doors with a Star Symbol lead to a Boss and you will need a Planet Tablet to open them. (except second boss, where you get the Planet Tablet after defeating it) After a boss, you get to put a Chaos Emerald on an alter and part of the planet will be restored. Doors off to the side with both a Sun and Moon Symbol are Puzzle Rooms. Open them with a certain number of Sun and Moon Medals. Inside you will have to solve puzzles in order to grab Items, 1ups or Mission Keys. Puzzles involve changing between Werehog and regular Sonic. Numbers of Medals to open the doors: Apotos Door to the left: 33 Sun, 26 Moon First door to the right: 43 Sun, 45 Moon Second door to the right: 14 Sun, 14 Moon Mazuri Door to the left: 14 Sun, 15 Moon First door to the right: 55 Sun, 46 Moon Second door to the right: 87 Sun, 69 Moon Holoska Door to the left: 90 Sun, 69 Moon First door to the right: 23 Sun, 21 Moon Second door to the right: 60 Sun, 46 Moon Spagonia First door to the left: 93 Sun, 69 Moon Second door to the left: 75 Sun, 52 Moon First door to the right: 95 Sun, 69 Moon Second door to the right: 23 Sun, 15 Moon Chun-nan First door to the left: 89 Sun, 69 Moon Second door to the left: 86 Sun, 60 Moon First door to the right: 33 Sun, 34 Moon Second door to the right: 33 Sun, 21 Moon Shamar First door to the left: 43 Sun, 52 Moon Second door to the left: 96 Sun, 69 Moon First door to the right: 68 Sun, 56 Moon Second door to the right: 70 Sun, 59 Moon Adabat First door to the left: 99 Sun, 69 Moon Second door to the left: 80 Sun, 60 Moon First door to the right: 97 Sun, 69 Moon Second door to the right: 80 Sun, 69 Moon ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 9.b.1. Gaia Gate Puzzle Room Solutions ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ *Note, small error in here, I accidentally unlocked an item required mission in the Gaia Gate and accidentally included it in the walkthrough, if you spot this mistake, let me know. Apotos ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Door to the left: 33 Sun, 26 Moon Ignore the sunspot at first, and swing across the two bars at the right side of the room. Now run across the treadmill and pick up the 1up. Now go across the second treadmill after the door, and go to the right, where you will see a platform going up and down. Use it to reach Soundtrack 12. Now go to the left, and climb up the ledge for a 1up. First door to the right: 43 Sun, 45 Moon Go to the left of the treadmill to find a ledge leading up to a 1up. Now swing across a couple of poles, then head over to a level to the right. Push it to activate a platform floating over the treadmill. Get on it, and let the platform take you to a sunspot. Jump from here to the right to push a switch. Now you opened a door, run up the treadmill to get Secret Mission 14. To the right of the door you just opened is another door, attack it to open it as Werehog to find Illustration 96 and Secret Mission 13. (Do you get Secret Mission 13 here?)

Now drop down to the area below and you will see sunrays coming out of the walls, I'm gonna call the sunrays 1, 2 and 3 going from left to right, and the medal crates 1, 2 and 3. First just go ahead and grab Soundtrack 6 in front of sunspot 1 floating over the switch. Then pick up medal crate 1. If you are careful, walk through the gaps in the fence behind boxes 2 and 3 so you do not change into regular Sonic, then standing beside it, carefully set box 1 in front of the conveyor belt. Double Jump from the medal crate to get Secret Mission 3. Now pick up crate 1, and go back the way you came. Now where sunray 1 comes out of the wall, there is a gap in the fence, set the box down in front of the sunray in order to block the light. Now pick up crate 2 and set it on top of the blue switch to reverse the direction of the treadmill. Now see the gap in the right hand fence in front of crate 2? Pick up crate 3 from the safe side of the gap, and try to throw the crate onto the treadmill from here.

Don't Lightspeed Dash the rings in back of the fire just yet, fire is blocking them, instead go to the right of the sunspot to find more Rings to Lightspeed Dash. Grab Secret Mission 9, then change back into Werehog and set the two metal crates down over the edge. Now go down here, and use the metal crate that was already down here and the two you just put down here to cover up the fire that is blocking the Lightspeed Dash Rings. Now you can Lightspeed Dash this set of Rings to get Secret Mission 18. Second door to the left: 96 Sun, 69 Moon Ignore everything else for now, swing across the bars, and head right. Get in the sunspot. See the rings to the right? They are in front of a gap in the wall, crawl through there, then quickly get to the treadmill and go across it, it might take more than one try to make it. Before picking up the metal crate, jump up the ledges to eventually find Movie 27. Now pick up the metal crate, and put it on the switch next to the gap in the wall.

Grab Movie 19. Ignore the blue switch for now, you have nothing to put on it, go across the horizontal poles. Grab Illustration 3. Now hit the sunspot and Lightspeed Dash the Rings. If you moved the platform where I asked, then the platform should be lined up so you can put the metal crate on top of it. Now go all the way back to the crank. Move the platform so it is near the blue switch, then go all the way back to the blue switch and set the crate on the switch. Now go back toward the sunspot area, and another platform has appeared going back and forth, take it to Illustration 40.

Random Observations: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ *Note, I am getting too many Random Observation requests, so I am shutting this down, this is enough. If the world split apart like that, wouldn't the oceans spill over onto the core? Sonic lives on a different world, can we finally call it Mobius like in the old cartoons and comics? If you have played previous Sonic games(especially Secret Rings), isn't the urge to Jump Dash just too much sometimes, then you shake the Wii Remote and go Dashing off a cliff? Why isn't the South Pole of Sonic's world cold? From Maizy Cornwell: If Sonic really wants Amy to leave him alone why is he so embarrassed when she sees him as a werehog....? XD From LeTavious: the Tornado 1 was destroyed....why is it in this game? From: Nicky if proffeser pickles name is pickle why does he eat cucumbers? From: Matias Why is it that whenever you complete a SUN stage you get a MOON badge and when you complete a MOON stage you get a SUN badge? If Eggman built all his robot, why did he produce one that would talk bad towards him and mock him? Where are Knuckles, Shadow, Rogue, E-123, or any other main character when the world is at crisis and Sonic's working his ass off to save it? If Sonic transformed using the Negative energy of the Chaos emeralds, shouldn't he turn into some sort of creature like Chaos instead of a... werehog? Where does Chip get all his chocolate? And where does he keep it for that matter? One of the missions said EN instead of IN, I can't remember which one it was at the moment, but... just a random observation. Instead of using the word IN they misspelled it as EN. Since the continents are split appart and shattered into space kinda - does that mean the Tornado 1 can fly through Space? If so - does this mean Sonic can breathe in space? Sonic Adventure 2 proved that he may be able to since they did fight the final boss in mid space and had a lot of Space levels. Would this mean Sonic is related to Frieza?! Lol jk... no but seriously, he can breathe in space?!? When are they going to make a Sonic game that lets you use Super Sonic mid stage whenever you want using 50 rings like the old games? I MISS THAT!... sorry... just wondering... ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 11. Questions?: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Got Questions or need help?
