A. Sonic
--------

Item: Magic Gloves
Location: City Escape
Requirements: Bounce Bracelet, Flame Ring
What It Does: Allows you to pick up enemies and throw them. Press B when the
top right corner says "Magic Gloves" to pick up the enemy, then
press B again to throw.
Difficulty: Fairly Easy

How To Get: First of all, make sure you have the Bounce Bracelet AND the
Flame Ring before you attempt to get this upgrade. Run through
the level as you would in a normal run until you come to a part
with 2 enemies shooting at you. Near them should be a staircase
going down with a rail and an arch over it. Right before you go
down that staircase, there should be 4 metal boxes imbedded in
the ground. Do a bounce attack and located down in the ground
should be the Magic Gloves and a spring. Grab the Magic Gloves
and of course, use the spring to get out.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Light Shoes
Location: Metal Harbor
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to use the EXTREMELY useful Light Dash. The Light
Dash (also seen in Sonic Adventure) allows you to dash through
a line of rings to get over and avoid obstacles under. This is
usually used to access shortcuts and occasionally used to
continue on the normal path.
Difficulty: Extremely Easy - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: Continue through the level as normal until you come to a LONG
string of rings and no other way across the water. Stop and go
into the structure to see one of those things you grab and it
raises you. I don't know what they are called. Anyways, at the
top is a platform with the Light Shoes upgrade. Go down to the
line of ring to test out your upgrade and continue on your way!

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Ancient Light
Location: Green Forest
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to use the Light Attack. The Light Attack allows
you to attack enemies in a quick row.
Difficulty: Medium

How To Get: Right before the second checkpoint, there should be 2 boosters
that lead outside the enclosement. This should be a short
distance after the open loop. Right before you leave, face
the camera and you should see an enemy floating. Do a homing
attack on the enemy, then do another homing attack on to the
ledge across. The reason this is sort of tough is the horrible
camera angle. Anyways, the ledge across should have a free life
and the Ancient Light powerup.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Bounce Bracelet
Location: Pyramid Cave
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to do the bounce attack and also allows you to bounce
off the ground and gain momentum to get to high ledges. The
bounce attack is another REQUIRED upgrade to complete the level.
Difficulty: Extremely Easy - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: In my opinion, the easiest powerup on the game. Its located
DIRECTLY on the path. Just proceed through the level and you most
likely will spot it easily.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Flame Ring
Location: Crazy Gadget
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to break metal boxes allowing you to find more hidden
animals and coin boxes. This is a very useful upgrade.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: Right after the second warp pipe type thing and what I believe is
the third checkpoint, jump down the large step. You should be
upside down when you are done with the warp pipe. Anyways, use
the gravity switch straight in front of you to turn right side
up. Go backwards a little bit and hit one of the two springs in
the back of the room. The flame ring should be located behind
some wooden boxes.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Mystic Melody
Location: Final Rush
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to play a melody in front of certain ancient shrines
that unveils new paths that usually lead to the lost Chao.
These also allow shortcuts occasionally.
Difficulty: Medium-Hard - REQUIRED to get 3rd level emblems

How To Get: The hardest upgrade to get for Sonic is the Mystic Melody. This
is hard to explain, but I'll do the best I can. After the fifth
checkpoint you should come to a large room with many splitting
paths. After you take the long vertical grind, grind down the
the next platform where it splits. Grind the left rail on this
and you should get enough distance at the end to make it on the
platform with the rocket. If you take the left path, watch as
you go down for a platform at the left. Jump on it if you can
and it'll lead you to the platform with the rocket. After a few
tries, you should get it down easily. Take the rocket to a free
guy, then continue along the path and eventually you will come
to the Mystic Melody upgrade. Play the Mystic Melody at the
shrine and take the warp to continue on with the level.

_______________________________________________________________________________

B. Tails
--------

Item: Laser Blaster
Location: Prison Lane
Requirements: Bazooka
What It Does: Increases the amount of space and firing radius Tails has. You
can lock on to enemies with double the radius now. This is
another useful item when you are attempting for A ranks on the
levels.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium

How To Get: If you've been looking for this and not finding it, it's actually
a pretty obvious upgrade. In the final room, make sure you do
NOT touch the goal ring and look near the back of the room. You
should see a metal door with boxes behind it. Shoot all the
enemies in the room and the door should open. If it doesnt, make
sure you have all the enemies near the ceiling. Jumping around
while locking usually works. Once the door opens, proceed down
the hall and shoot the 2 guards to open the final gate between
you and the Bazooka.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Booster
Location: Mission Street
Requirements: None
What It Does: One of Tails most useful upgrades, this allows you to hover over
open spaces to make those long, tough jumps. This is required
to finish Mission Street and is also required to finish many of
the other missions with Tails in the game.
Difficulty: Easy - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: Proceed through Mission Street until you come to a large gap in
the road you can't jump with a line of rings going across. Turn
around, and you should see the powerup behind you. Be careful
when getting it as the road will collapse, requiring you to fly
after you pick it up. Fly over the large gap to continue on with
the level.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Mystic Melody
Location: Hidden Base
Requirements: Bazooka
What It Does: Allows you to play a melody in front of certain ancient shrines
that unveils new paths that usually lead to the lost Chao.
These also allow shortcuts occasionally.
Difficulty: Easy - REQUIRED to get 3rd level emblems

How To Get: Walkthrough the level as you would normally until you come up to
a very large "lower portion" of the level. This is right after
you rise up by a crane type thing and shoot all the bomb throwing
monkeys. From a distance, a graphic error makes it look as if an
open passage is on the bottom. As you get closer you'll notice 4
metal boxes blocking the opening. Shoot these 4 boxes and jump
the easy set of gaps to pick up the Mystic Melody. Once you grab
it, play it at the shrine and use the crane to raise yourself
on the path and to continue the level.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Bazooka
Location: Eternal Engine
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to break metal boxes. This is another extremely
useful upgrade for Tails. Breaking metal boxes allows you to
find new paths, shortcuts, and even some animals to raise your
Chao with.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: Continue through the level as normal until you come to a long
bridge with a switch at the other end. Under the switch should
be a locked door and a floating platform between you and the
door. There are 2 ways to make it into the locked door that
contains the Bazooka upgrade. First, you can walk across the
bridge and hit the switch being careful not to blow up the path
in front of you. If you accidently blow it up, you'll need to
fall down to the large platform below. Near the back of this
platform should be the switch. Hop onto the platform nearby to
ascend back up to the now unlocked door to see an upgrade
surrounded by a ring of rings.

_______________________________________________________________________________

C. Knuckles
-----------

Item: Mystic Melody
Location: Wild Canyon
Requirements: Shovel Claw
What It Does: Allows you to play a melody in front of certain ancient shrines
that unveils new paths that usually lead to the lost Chao.
These also allow shortcuts occasionally.
Difficulty: Easy - REQUIRED to get 3rd level emblems

How To Get: Make your way up the Thermal Lift type thing (thats just what
I call it) and head to the left (or right, depending which way
you are facing). Fly over to the lonely statue and way above his
head is a picture. Dig through the Oval type shape in the center
to find a secret room with Knuckles Mystic Melody. Use it on the
shrine to create a warp that leads you back to the starting room.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Shovel Claw
Location: Pumpkin Hill
Requirements: None
What It Does: Without a doubt the most useful upgrade for Knuckles, this
allows you to dig through walls and floors to find some of the
pieces of the emerald (or keys depending on which level).
Without this, you won't make it past Pumpkin Hill.
Difficulty: Extremely Easy - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: Look straight ahead from you and you will see the Shovel Claw.
All you need to do is fly or walk across the ledge to get over
to the "island" and pick up this simple upgrade.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Air Necklace
Location: Aquatic Mine
Requirements: None
What It Does: Another useful upgrade for our little red echidna is the air
necklace. The air necklace allows infinite air while swimming
underwater. You'll have a VERY tough time beating the final
level without this item, so I suggest you pick it up on your
first time through this level.
Difficulty: Medium-Hard - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for final stage

How To Get: The first thing you need to do for this upgrade is getting the
water level lowered. Walk straight forward at the beginning of
the level, crawl up that central structure (water powered lift),
and grab the crane lift to get up to the highest floor. Find the
level 3 water switch and hit it to make life a little easier. Go
down into the level again and look for a long pipe type
structure with 2 caution signs plastered near the top of it. Go
down the pipe and if you see a spring at the bottom, continue on.
If theres only an opening and no spring, go to the other side of
the level (should be kitty cornered) and drop down that one. Hop
into a water and now is when the fun begins. As fast as you can,
swim through the path. Soon you'll come to a small room with
some wooden planks at the bottom. Quickly and carefully swim
through them and swim through another pipe. Now quickly swim
straight up and hope you don't run out of air. At the top is a
small room with the air necklace.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Hammer Gloves
Location: Death Chamber
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to destroy metal boxes. Destroying the boxes can
help you find extra rings, animals, shortcuts, and even upgrades
for some characters. These are required to complete the level.
Difficulty: Easy - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: At the beginning of the level, use the hourglass to go through
the door. Turn to your right in the hallway to see some crates.
Break through them and located behind are the Hammer Gloves.
You can now get through the 2 paths with metal crates in the main
room and continue on with your hunting quest.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Sunglasses
Location: Meteor Herd
Requirements: Hammer Gloves
What It Does: Allows you to see hidden pictures and hidden items. Required to
get most Hard Mode emblems (5th emblem for each Knuckles level)
I recommened you pick up this upgrade right away considering it
is fairly easy to get and comes very useful. Out of all of
Knuckles upgrades, this one is the coolest.
Difficulty: Medium - REQUIRED for most Hard Mode emblems

How To Get: There are actually 2 ways to get this upgrade. I would suggest
using the way that seems easier for you. Straight in front of
you is a circular type platform (located directly under where
you fight Rouge in the next level) with 6 doors with red slashes
on them. Use the nearby meteors by smashing them into the doors
to find a metal box with a switch. The door you need has the
meteor a fairly large distance away. You can either:
A) Get a good start and smash that meteor as hard as you can into
the door
OR you can
B) Softly tap one of the other meteors around and place it as
well as you can in front of the door. Then you can smash it
into the door.
Either way, once you open the door, break the box and hit the
switch. This will remove the floor from the force-fielded walls
in front of you. Fly up and over the force field walls and fall
down into the newly opened area. On the bottom platform should
be located the upgrade. Pop on the sunglasses by using the Y
button to shuffle through your B list. Then hit B to put them
on to see some hidden surprises nearby.

_______________________________________________________________________________

D. Shadow
---------

Item: Flame Ring
Location: Radical Highway
Requirements: Air Shoes
What It Does: Since this is the same as Sonic's Flame Ring, I'll just copy
and paste that definition here. Allows you to break metal boxes
allowing you to find more hidden animals and coin boxes. This
is a very useful upgrade.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and may be REQUIRED

How To Get: Near the beginning of the level, you should see a "staircase
pyramid" type structure leading up to the highway. Hop up this
making sure not to shoot the boxes. After walking a little ways
you'll come up to a highway path you need to "turn" on. Instead
of going the way the camera goes, go the other way. You should
see a roller that you can spin under. After this should be a
line of rings going to another highway. You should know what to
do here, if not simply do a Light Dash across the way. Hit the
spring on the path and hop into the circle to get the Flame Ring
upgrade.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Air Shoes
Location: White Jungle
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to use the EXTREMELY useful Light Dash. The Light
Dash (also seen in Sonic Adventure) allows you to dash through
a line of rings to get over and avoid obstacles under. This is
usually used to access shortcuts and occasionally used to
continue on the normal path.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: Go through the level as normal until you get to a long line of
rings. Look around on the island you are on to find a wooden
box. Open it up and fall down into the hole to land on a lower
bit of the jungle mountain. Look around to see the Air Shoes.
To get out of this area, spin under the wooden wall nearby and
use the shoes for a light dash across the ring line.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Ancient Light
Location: Sky Rail
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to use the Light Attack. The Light Attack allows
you to attack enemies in a quick row.
Difficulty: Medium-Hard

How To Get: Not as hard as it seems. Proceed through the level as normal
until you get to the first rocket. DO NOT take this rocket, but
instead homing attack the enemy over to the ledge with the chao
box. Walk over and break the chao box. Tiptoe over to the edge
and get as close to the mountain as you can. A row of baddies
should appear. Homing attack them and then homing attack the
final one with the spring to get to the top of the mountain and
the Ancient Light upgrade.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Mystic Melody
Location: Final Chase
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to play a melody in front of certain ancient shrines
that unveils new paths that usually lead to the lost Chao.
These also allow shortcuts occasionally.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium

How To Get: Continue through the level as normal until you get to the part
where you are continuously running up gravity pipes and jumping
onto platforms with those annoying Chaos type guys attacking you.
At the top of one of those you will be able to see in the
distance another gravity pipe with an entire electric field
around at one point. Jump at the pipe so you land above the
electric field and then follow up the pipe for a platform and
the Shadow's Mystic Melody upgrade.

_______________________________________________________________________________

E. Dr. Eggman
-------------

Item: Laser Blaster
Location: Iron Gate
Requirements: Large Cannon
What It Does: Increases the amount of space and firing radius Eggman has. You
can lock on to enemies with double the radius now. This is
another useful item when you are attempting for A ranks on the
levels.
Difficulty: Easy

How To Get: Continue through the level as normal until you get to the 2nd
checkpoint. In front of you should be a hallway blocked by metal
boxes. Simply shoot the boxes out and continue through the
"trashy" hallway to get this upgrade. See..that wasn't so hard
now, was it?

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Mystic Melody
Location: Sand Ocean
Requirements: Jet Engine
What It Does: Allows you to play a melody in front of certain ancient shrines
that unveils new paths that usually lead to the lost Chao.
These also allow shortcuts occasionally.
Difficulty: Easy - REQUIRED to get 3rd level emblems

How To Get: At the beginning of the level, hop onto the spinning platform
shortly in front of you. Wait on the end of it until it comes up
to the platform on your left. Jump and hover over and walk down
the short path to find the Mystic Melody at the end. Play it at
the shrine to create a warp and continue on your way.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Jet Engine
Location: Lost Colony
Requirements: None
What It Does: One of Eggman's most useful upgrades, this allows you to hover
over open spaces to make those long, tough jumps. This is
required to finish Lost Colony and is also required to finish
many of the other missions with Eggman in the game.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: When you get to the large room that appears to be a never ending
circle and fairly dark, look around until you see a staircase
made of the unbreakable metal boxes. It should be the only
completed staircase that you can actually walk up in this level.
This will allow you to hover to the other platforms and exit the
room which is why it is required.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Large Cannon
Location: Weapons Bed
Requirements: None
What It Does: This is a weapon upgrade for Dr. Eggman that allows him to break
metal boxes. Breaking metal boxes in SA2 is extremely helpful
and required in finishing some missions or finding hidden rings
and animals.
Difficulty: Easy - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and possibly REQUIRED

How To Get: Head past the large stock of enemies at the beginning of the
level and keep an eye out on the left side for 3 doors. One
should be open while the other two are closed with dynamite packs.
Open the center door or the left one with dynamite in it to find
the upgrade tucked away. Sometimes Sonic Team can be so sneaky!

_______________________________________________________________________________
Item: Protective Armor
Location: Cosmic Wall
Requirements: Jet Engine
What It Does: Obviously, the Armor upgrade upgrades your armor allowing you
to take more hits from the baddies!
Difficulty: Medium

How To Get: This is a fairly obvious one, but I will still explain it. After
the second checkpoint, there will be a free fall coming up. As
you fall, look for a platform with a rocket on the left side.
Land on the platform and launch the rocket to blow up some
"hidden" crates. Hover over to the hidden platform located
directly below the other platform. It's tough to see but you'll
need to try to land right between them. If you can manage that,
you'll get this upgrade.

_______________________________________________________________________________

F. Rouge
--------

Item: Mystic Melody
Location: Dry Lagoon
Requirements: Pick Nails
What It Does: Allows you to play a melody in front of certain ancient shrines
that unveils new paths that usually lead to the lost Chao.
These also allow shortcuts occasionally.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium - REQUIRED to get 3rd level emblems

How To Get: In the starting room, look around for a picture to crawl through.
It should look like the ones you ran across in Egg Quarters and
Knuckles' Death Chamber levels. Anyways, there should be 2
pictures in the room you start in. One is uncovered while the
other is hidden behind some boxes way up on the top. Find the
uncovered one which is a little bit lower than the covered one.
Once you find it, crawl in and grab the Mystic Melody. Play it
on the shrine to create a warp and continue on through the level.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Pick Nails
Location: Egg Quarters
Requirements: None
What It Does: Without a doubt the most useful upgrade for Rouge, this allows
you to dig through walls and floors to find some of the pieces
of the emerald (or keys depending on which level). Without this,
you won't make it past Egg Quarters.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: At the start of the level, go forward through the hallway while
watching out for the beetle robot. When safe, continue through
the next room with 2 robot enemies and through another hallway.
When you get to the room with the rocket, set the rocket off and
go through the wall it opens up. Located at the far end of the
room is the upgrade. Please be careful as there is a trap in the
center of the room waiting to crush you if you don't go around it.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Treasure Scope
Location: Security Hall
Requirements: Iron Boots, Mystic Melody
What It Does: Allows you to see hidden pictures and hidden items. Required to
get most Hard Mode emblems (5th emblem for each Knuckles level)
I recommened you pick up this upgrade as soon as you get the
Boots and the Melody, because it comes in handy.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium

How To Get: The first thing you'll need to do is get on the Yellow floor which
I believe is floor B and the center floor. Anyways, run to the
end nearest the beginning and you should see a Shrine. Obviously,
play the Mystic Melody and a line of platforms will appear walk or
jump across these into the door and continue to find the Treasure
Scope. Put it on by cycling through your B list with the Y button
and you will see a free life in the corner of the room you found
it.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Iron Boots
Location: Mad Space
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to destroy metal boxes. Destroying the boxes can
help you find extra rings, animals, shortcuts, and even upgrades
for some characters. These are required to complete the level.
Difficulty: Medium-Hard - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

How To Get: This one is tough to explain, but I'll do the best I can. Here
is a short walkthrough on getting it from beginning to end. At
the beginning, go to one of the 3 connected platforms with the
switch. The switch puts a rocket on a platform above. Climb up
and use the rocket to get on a big green asteroid. Look around
for a smaller asteroid (still rather large) that looks sort of
like the moon. Fly down to it and look in the enclosement in the
center of the asteroid to find the upgrade.

platform should be the switch. Hop onto the platform nearby to
ascend back up to the now unlocked door to see an upgrade
surrounded by a ring of rings.

C. Knuckles
-----------

Item: Mystic Melody
Location: Wild Canyon
Requirements: Shovel Claw
What It Does: Allows you to play a melody in front of certain ancient shrines
that unveils new paths that usually lead to the lost Chao.
These also allow shortcuts occasionally.
Difficulty: Easy - REQUIRED to get 3rd level emblems

How To Get: Make your way up the Thermal Lift type thing (thats just what
I call it) and head to the left (or right, depending which way
you are facing). Fly over to the lonely statue and way above his
head is a picture. Dig through the Oval type shape in the center
to find a secret room with Knuckles Mystic Melody. Use it on the
shrine to create a warp that leads you back to the starting room.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Shovel Claw
Location: Pumpkin Hill
Requirements: None
What It Does: Without a doubt the most useful upgrade for Knuckles, this
allows you to dig through walls and floors to find some of the
pieces of the emerald (or keys depending on which level).
Without this, you won't make it past Pumpkin Hill.
Difficulty: Extremely Easy - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: Look straight ahead from you and you will see the Shovel Claw.
All you need to do is fly or walk across the ledge to get over
to the "island" and pick up this simple upgrade.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Air Necklace
Location: Aquatic Mine
Requirements: None
What It Does: Another useful upgrade for our little red echidna is the air
necklace. The air necklace allows infinite air while swimming
underwater. You'll have a VERY tough time beating the final
level without this item, so I suggest you pick it up on your
first time through this level.
Difficulty: Medium-Hard - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for final stage

How To Get: The first thing you need to do for this upgrade is getting the
water level lowered. Walk straight forward at the beginning of
the level, crawl up that central structure (water powered lift),
and grab the crane lift to get up to the highest floor. Find the
level 3 water switch and hit it to make life a little easier. Go
down into the level again and look for a long pipe type
structure with 2 caution signs plastered near the top of it. Go
down the pipe and if you see a spring at the bottom, continue on.
If theres only an opening and no spring, go to the other side of
the level (should be kitty cornered) and drop down that one. Hop
into a water and now is when the fun begins. As fast as you can,
swim through the path. Soon you'll come to a small room with
some wooden planks at the bottom. Quickly and carefully swim
through them and swim through another pipe. Now quickly swim
straight up and hope you don't run out of air. At the top is a
small room with the air necklace.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Hammer Gloves
Location: Death Chamber
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to destroy metal boxes. Destroying the boxes can
help you find extra rings, animals, shortcuts, and even upgrades
for some characters. These are required to complete the level.
Difficulty: Easy - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: At the beginning of the level, use the hourglass to go through
the door. Turn to your right in the hallway to see some crates.
Break through them and located behind are the Hammer Gloves.
You can now get through the 2 paths with metal crates in the main
room and continue on with your hunting quest.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Sunglasses
Location: Meteor Herd
Requirements: Hammer Gloves
What It Does: Allows you to see hidden pictures and hidden items. Required to
get most Hard Mode emblems (5th emblem for each Knuckles level)
I recommened you pick up this upgrade right away considering it
is fairly easy to get and comes very useful. Out of all of
Knuckles upgrades, this one is the coolest.
Difficulty: Medium - REQUIRED for most Hard Mode emblems

How To Get: There are actually 2 ways to get this upgrade. I would suggest
using the way that seems easier for you. Straight in front of
you is a circular type platform (located directly under where
you fight Rouge in the next level) with 6 doors with red slashes
on them. Use the nearby meteors by smashing them into the doors
to find a metal box with a switch. The door you need has the
meteor a fairly large distance away. You can either:
A) Get a good start and smash that meteor as hard as you can into
the door
OR you can
B) Softly tap one of the other meteors around and place it as
well as you can in front of the door. Then you can smash it
into the door.
Either way, once you open the door, break the box and hit the
switch. This will remove the floor from the force-fielded walls
in front of you. Fly up and over the force field walls and fall
down into the newly opened area. On the bottom platform should
be located the upgrade. Pop on the sunglasses by using the Y
button to shuffle through your B list. Then hit B to put them
on to see some hidden surprises nearby.

_______________________________________________________________________________

D. Shadow
---------

Item: Flame Ring
Location: Radical Highway
Requirements: Air Shoes
What It Does: Since this is the same as Sonic's Flame Ring, I'll just copy
and paste that definition here. Allows you to break metal boxes
allowing you to find more hidden animals and coin boxes. This
is a very useful upgrade.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and may be REQUIRED

How To Get: Near the beginning of the level, you should see a "staircase
pyramid" type structure leading up to the highway. Hop up this
making sure not to shoot the boxes. After walking a little ways
you'll come up to a highway path you need to "turn" on. Instead
of going the way the camera goes, go the other way. You should
see a roller that you can spin under. After this should be a
line of rings going to another highway. You should know what to
do here, if not simply do a Light Dash across the way. Hit the
spring on the path and hop into the circle to get the Flame Ring
upgrade.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Air Shoes
Location: White Jungle
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to use the EXTREMELY useful Light Dash. The Light
Dash (also seen in Sonic Adventure) allows you to dash through
a line of rings to get over and avoid obstacles under. This is
usually used to access shortcuts and occasionally used to
continue on the normal path.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: Go through the level as normal until you get to a long line of
rings. Look around on the island you are on to find a wooden
box. Open it up and fall down into the hole to land on a lower
bit of the jungle mountain. Look around to see the Air Shoes.
To get out of this area, spin under the wooden wall nearby and
use the shoes for a light dash across the ring line.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Ancient Light
Location: Sky Rail
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to use the Light Attack. The Light Attack allows
you to attack enemies in a quick row.
Difficulty: Medium-Hard

How To Get: Not as hard as it seems. Proceed through the level as normal
until you get to the first rocket. DO NOT take this rocket, but
instead homing attack the enemy over to the ledge with the chao
box. Walk over and break the chao box. Tiptoe over to the edge
and get as close to the mountain as you can. A row of baddies
should appear. Homing attack them and then homing attack the
final one with the spring to get to the top of the mountain and
the Ancient Light upgrade.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Mystic Melody
Location: Final Chase
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to play a melody in front of certain ancient shrines
that unveils new paths that usually lead to the lost Chao.
These also allow shortcuts occasionally.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium

How To Get: Continue through the level as normal until you get to the part
where you are continuously running up gravity pipes and jumping
onto platforms with those annoying Chaos type guys attacking you.
At the top of one of those you will be able to see in the
distance another gravity pipe with an entire electric field
around at one point. Jump at the pipe so you land above the
electric field and then follow up the pipe for a platform and
the Shadow's Mystic Melody upgrade.

_______________________________________________________________________________

E. Dr. Eggman
-------------

Item: Laser Blaster
Location: Iron Gate
Requirements: Large Cannon
What It Does: Increases the amount of space and firing radius Eggman has. You
can lock on to enemies with double the radius now. This is
another useful item when you are attempting for A ranks on the
levels.
Difficulty: Easy

How To Get: Continue through the level as normal until you get to the 2nd
checkpoint. In front of you should be a hallway blocked by metal
boxes. Simply shoot the boxes out and continue through the
"trashy" hallway to get this upgrade. See..that wasn't so hard
now, was it?

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Mystic Melody
Location: Sand Ocean
Requirements: Jet Engine
What It Does: Allows you to play a melody in front of certain ancient shrines
that unveils new paths that usually lead to the lost Chao.
These also allow shortcuts occasionally.
Difficulty: Easy - REQUIRED to get 3rd level emblems

How To Get: At the beginning of the level, hop onto the spinning platform
shortly in front of you. Wait on the end of it until it comes up
to the platform on your left. Jump and hover over and walk down
the short path to find the Mystic Melody at the end. Play it at
the shrine to create a warp and continue on your way.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Jet Engine
Location: Lost Colony
Requirements: None
What It Does: One of Eggman's most useful upgrades, this allows you to hover
over open spaces to make those long, tough jumps. This is
required to finish Lost Colony and is also required to finish
many of the other missions with Eggman in the game.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: When you get to the large room that appears to be a never ending
circle and fairly dark, look around until you see a staircase
made of the unbreakable metal boxes. It should be the only
completed staircase that you can actually walk up in this level.
This will allow you to hover to the other platforms and exit the
room which is why it is required.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Large Cannon
Location: Weapons Bed
Requirements: None
What It Does: This is a weapon upgrade for Dr. Eggman that allows him to break
metal boxes. Breaking metal boxes in SA2 is extremely helpful
and required in finishing some missions or finding hidden rings
and animals.
Difficulty: Easy - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and possibly REQUIRED

How To Get: Head past the large stock of enemies at the beginning of the
level and keep an eye out on the left side for 3 doors. One
should be open while the other two are closed with dynamite packs.
Open the center door or the left one with dynamite in it to find
the upgrade tucked away. Sometimes Sonic Team can be so sneaky!

_______________________________________________________________________________
Item: Protective Armor
Location: Cosmic Wall
Requirements: Jet Engine
What It Does: Obviously, the Armor upgrade upgrades your armor allowing you
to take more hits from the baddies!
Difficulty: Medium

How To Get: This is a fairly obvious one, but I will still explain it. After
the second checkpoint, there will be a free fall coming up. As
you fall, look for a platform with a rocket on the left side.
Land on the platform and launch the rocket to blow up some
"hidden" crates. Hover over to the hidden platform located
directly below the other platform. It's tough to see but you'll
need to try to land right between them. If you can manage that,
you'll get this upgrade.

_______________________________________________________________________________

F. Rouge
--------

Item: Mystic Melody
Location: Dry Lagoon
Requirements: Pick Nails
What It Does: Allows you to play a melody in front of certain ancient shrines
that unveils new paths that usually lead to the lost Chao.
These also allow shortcuts occasionally.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium - REQUIRED to get 3rd level emblems

How To Get: In the starting room, look around for a picture to crawl through.
It should look like the ones you ran across in Egg Quarters and
Knuckles' Death Chamber levels. Anyways, there should be 2
pictures in the room you start in. One is uncovered while the
other is hidden behind some boxes way up on the top. Find the
uncovered one which is a little bit lower than the covered one.
Once you find it, crawl in and grab the Mystic Melody. Play it
on the shrine to create a warp and continue on through the level.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Pick Nails
Location: Egg Quarters
Requirements: None
What It Does: Without a doubt the most useful upgrade for Rouge, this allows
you to dig through walls and floors to find some of the pieces
of the emerald (or keys depending on which level). Without this,
you won't make it past Egg Quarters.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium - REQUIRED to finish level

How To Get: At the start of the level, go forward through the hallway while
watching out for the beetle robot. When safe, continue through
the next room with 2 robot enemies and through another hallway.
When you get to the room with the rocket, set the rocket off and
go through the wall it opens up. Located at the far end of the
room is the upgrade. Please be careful as there is a trap in the
center of the room waiting to crush you if you don't go around it.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Treasure Scope
Location: Security Hall
Requirements: Iron Boots, Mystic Melody
What It Does: Allows you to see hidden pictures and hidden items. Required to
get most Hard Mode emblems (5th emblem for each Knuckles level)
I recommened you pick up this upgrade as soon as you get the
Boots and the Melody, because it comes in handy.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium

How To Get: The first thing you'll need to do is get on the Yellow floor which
I believe is floor B and the center floor. Anyways, run to the
end nearest the beginning and you should see a Shrine. Obviously,
play the Mystic Melody and a line of platforms will appear walk or
jump across these into the door and continue to find the Treasure
Scope. Put it on by cycling through your B list with the Y button
and you will see a free life in the corner of the room you found
it.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Item: Iron Boots
Location: Mad Space
Requirements: None
What It Does: Allows you to destroy metal boxes. Destroying the boxes can
help you find extra rings, animals, shortcuts, and even upgrades
for some characters. These are required to complete the level.
Difficulty: Medium-Hard - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

How To Get: This one is tough to explain, but I'll do the best I can. Here
is a short walkthrough on getting it from beginning to end. At
the beginning, go to one of the 3 connected platforms with the
switch. The switch puts a rocket on a platform above. Climb up
and use the rocket to get on a big green asteroid. Look around
for a smaller asteroid (still rather large) that looks sort of
like the moon. Fly down to it and look in the enclosement in the
center of the asteroid to find the upgrade.
