1. Introduction
----------------
Welcome to this Sonic Adventure 2 Battle Boss FAQ. As you may have gussed from
the title, this FAQ is designed to help you emerge victorious over all of the
bosses in the Hero, Dark, and Last Stories. So, without further ado, let's
start covering these bosses!

---------------------
2. Hero Story Bosses
---------------------
This section of the Boss FAQ covers the bosses that you will encounter as you
play through the Hero Story of Sonic Adventure 2 Battle. Let's begin!

-----------------
BIG FOOT
Difficulty: Easy
Character: Sonic
-----------------
At the end of City Escape, the first level in the Hero Story, Sonic has to
fight a security robot called Big Foot. As the robot flies around the area,
make sure you're running so that you can avoid the shots fired at you from
above. After several rounds of fire, Big Foot will land and fire missiles at
you. These are not hard to avoid; just keep running and you'll be fine. After
Big Foot is done firing missiles, quickly hit him with a homing attack. This
will do damage. Do that a few more times, doding more missiles after each hit,
and Big Foot will go down in a couple of minutes.

------------------------------
DR. EGGMAN
Difficulty: Unbelievably easy
Character: Tails
------------------------------
This boss is ridiculously simple. Just hammer away at the B Button and you
will either hit Eggman with a long-distance blast, or a short-distance hit if
he is closer to you. Either way, it should only take you a matter of seconds
to beat Eggman this time around.

---------------------------------
SHADOW THE HEDGEHOG
Difficulty: Moderately difficult
Character: Sonic
---------------------------------
Shadow will confront Shadow after you complete Metal Harbor. Shadow has moves
similar to Sonic's. He will run around and use the homing attack just like
Sonic does. To do damage, you must hit Shadow with a homing attack from
behind. If you try to attack from any other angle, Shadow will jump up and
spin, knocking you away and leaving you open for an homing attack from your
foe. Hit Shadow with three homing attacks to win. Be careful not to bounce up
and into the water on the outside of the battle area, because if you do, you
will lose a life.

---------------------------------
KING BOOM BOO
Difficulty: Moderately difficult
Character: Knuckles
---------------------------------
The first boss Knuckles has to go up against is a huge, scary-looking ghost.
As King Boom Boo chases you around the circular platform, keep running away
from him while avoiding the blue fireballs he throws your way. When King Boom
Boo inhales deeply, he is going to breathe a huge stream of blue flame. When
he does this, run around behind him and hit the little ghost there. It will
drop the hourglass, opening a hole in the ceiling and letting light in. This
will cause King Boom Boo to hide in the ground. Dig where you see his shadow
to get him out, then chase after him and nail him with a punch or two. After
another hit, King Boom Boo will start chasing you as he also threatens to
chomp on you. At this point, he travels a lot faster, so make sure you are
running as fast as you can. On the last hit, King Boom Boo will move around
in both the ground and the walls, so make sure you keep him in your sights and
dig where he is to get him out into the open before the hole in the ceiling
closes. Hit the boss with one more punch to finish the battle.

----------------------------
EGG GOLEM
Difficulty: Relatively easy
Character: Sonic
----------------------------
At the start of the battle, it will be hard for the Egg Golem to hit you if
you just make sure you keep moving. Make your way around to the golem's back
and jump up the ledges there. Hit the gizmo on the top of his head to deal
damage. Next, the Egg Golem will take both of his hands and sweep them across
the circular platform. To avoid this attack, get down to one of the platform's
lower levels and wait there until the hand sweeps over you harmlessly. After
you jump up the ledges on the golem's back and score a second hit, the boss
will slam his fists and his head down onto the platform. Run out of the way of
this assault and continue to hit the gizmo on the top of the Egg Golem's head
until it's defeated.

----------------------------------------
ROUGE THE BAT
Difficulty: Harder as battle progresses
Character: Knuckles
----------------------------------------
There is a possibility that you can finish this battle before the floor
beneath you opens up, forcing you up into the air. If you don't do this,
however, you may find this battle becoming incresingly difficult. Punch Rouge
when he guard is down, and get ready for her to use her special attack. Start
gliding when you hear Rouge say "Here I come!" If you do this correctly, you
will completely dodge the attack. As you fight in the high platforms, you may
find that Rouge starts climbing the walls to get away from you. If this
happens, quickly hit her with a Drill Dive to knock her down and damage her.
Continue to punch her or hit her with a Drill Dive until she goes down.

------------------------
DR. EGGMAN REMATCH
Difficulty: Frustrating
Character: Tails
------------------------
This fight is really tough. Eggman can use a deadly laser beam attack that is
fired your way your way when Eggman cries out, "You're no match for me!" At
this point, make sure you walk out of the way, and possibly hit Eggman while
he isn't looking. When Eggman shouts, "Take this!" keep moving to avoid the
missiles he fires at you. Keep firing at Eggman and make sure he takes more
damage than you. If you are caught in his large laser special attack, you are
likely to die, so dodge that attack at all costs! Make sure that, if you do
shoot a capsule in the center of the area, that you are not close to it, or
else when it explodes, you'll take unwanted damage. Keep shooting Eggman while
dodging his lethal attacks. When he's defeated, take a deep breath and get
ready for a showdown against Shadow.

---------------------------------
SHADOW THE HEDGEHOG REMATCH
Difficulty: Moderately difficult
Character: Sonic
---------------------------------
This battle is not that hard if you keep running and don't get hit by Shadow's
few attacks. Position yourself behind Shadow and hit him from behind with a
homing attack just like you did back in your first battle against him. Do that
again when you get the chance. Eventually, you will notice that, even if you
try to use the homing attack on Shadow when you are behind him, he will also
jump and spin to deflect it. Now, you must wait and let Shadow get far ahead
of you. Shadow will then use his Chaos Spear special attack on you. Use a
homing attack the second Shadow uses Chaos Spear to avoid the attack, then hit
Shadow while you can. As the battle progresses, if you get too far ahead of
Shadow as you run down the path, Shadow will say "This is the ultimate!" and
will automatically warp ahead of you. Continue using the homing attack to
damage him after he uses Chaos Spear to emerge triumphant in this fight.

---------------------
3. Dark Story Bosses
---------------------
This section of the Boss FAQ covers the bosses that you will have to fight as
you progress through the Dark Story of Sonic Adventure 2 Battle. Here we go!

------------------
HOT SHOT
Difficulty: Easy
Character: Shadow
------------------
This boss battle is exactly like the fight between Sonic and Big Foot in the
Hero Story. Run away from the shots Hot Spot fires at you, and then dodge the
missiles. Hit him with a homing attack after he's done firing the missiles.
When Hot Shot charges up to fire a huge blast at you, a targeting marker will
appear on the ground. As long as you continue to run around, the marker won't
target you, and the attack will miss. Continue to hit Hot Shot with homing
attacks in between his assaults.

------------------------------
TAILS
Difficulty: Unbelievably easy
Character: Eggman
------------------------------
This fight will seem familiar if you fought Eggman as Tails in the Hero Story.
Just keep pressing the B Button to hit Tails with either long-distance blasts
or short-distance attacks when Tails is close enough to you. This battle is
a piece of cake. You should be done here in about ten seconds.

-----------------
FLYING DOG
Difficulty: Easy
Character: Rouge
-----------------
This boss is similar to both Big Foot and Hot Shot. The only difference here
is the fact that Flying Dog never lands. So to deal damage to him, you must
glide into him. Like the battle against Hot Shot, Flying Dog will charge up a
large blast, at which point a targeting marker will appear on the ground. Keep
moving to avoid getting targeted, and glide into Flying Dog whenever you get
the chance.

---------------------------------
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG
Difficulty: Moderately difficult
Character: Shadow
---------------------------------
You will soon realize that this battle is exactly identical to the one in Hero
Story, except now you are fighting Sonic. Hit him with a homing attack from
behind or else Sonic will deflect your assault and possibly send you into the
water outside the battle area, resulting in you losing a life. Hit Sonic three
times to win.

------------------------
EGG GOLEM
Difficulty: Challenging
Character: Eggman
------------------------
Perhaps this battle would be a little bit easier if you were someone other
than Eggman, because when you play as Eggman, you must keep your health meter
from depleting. Anyway, make sure you avoid as many of the Egg Golem's attacks
as possible to avoid losing too much health, and then press the B Button to
fire at the boss. Eventually, one of the golem's weak points will be revealed.
Shoot it to cause damage. Shoot the golem some more to reveal its other weak
points, and destroy them to win this fight.

----------------------------------------
KNUCKLES
Difficulty: Harder as battle progresses
Character: Rouge
----------------------------------------
This boss battle is exactly the same as the one Knuckles fought against Rouge
in the Hero Story. Attack Knuckles as much as you can before the floor
beneath you opens up. If you are lucky, you may be able to defeat Knuckles
before the floor even opens. If not, be prepared to dodge Knuckles's special
attack. Glide to avoid it and look for Knuckles. If he is climbing on the
walls trying to retreat from you, you can damage him with a Drill Dive. Hit
him as much as possible and you will eventually beat him.

------------------------
TAILS REMATCH
Difficulty: Frustrating
Character: Eggman
------------------------
Just like the battle against Eggman in the Hero Story, this fight is really
hard because of Tail's deadly laser attack. Watch out for it and attack Tails
while he has his back to you. Also, be prepared to keep moving to dodge
missiles that will be fired at you. Hit Tails repeatedly with your own attacks
to overwhelm and defeat him.

---------------------------------
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG REMATCH
Difficulty: Moderately difficult
Character: Shadow
---------------------------------
After you've completed the Final Chase level, Shadow will fight Sonic in a
showdown. This battle is just like the one in the Hero Story, except the enemy
here is Sonic. Hit him with a homing attack from behind to score the first
couple of hits. When Sonic starts deflecting your homing attacks, let him get
ahead of you. When he uses Sonic Wind, dodge it then hit Sonic with a homing
attack while his guard is down. Do that a couple more times and he's down and
out.

---------------------
4. Last Story Bosses
---------------------
The Last Story has two bosses for you to battle. Both of them are really
tough, but if you read this section of the Boss FAQ, you'll be armed with the
knowledge you need to outwit these powerful foes. Here we go!

------------------------
THE BIOLIZARD
Difficulty: Frustrating
Character: Shadow
------------------------
It's the prototype of the ultimate life form, against Shadow, who is THE
ultimate life form. When this epic battle starts, run away from the Biolizard
as his head move towards you. After a bit, the Biolizard will pause. Grind on
the rail and head up to the life support system. Homing attack it to do damage
to the boss. After the Biolizard's head moves toward you again, he will then
start shooting black energy spheres at you. To dodge the one on the ground,
you must jump. To dodge the ones in the air, roll under them. Grind up the
rail and hit the lift support system with another homing attack. Do this a
third time. Now after you have dodged more dark energy spheres, the Biolizard
will be surrounded by multiple red balls. Homing attack these to make your way
upward. When you have a clear shot of the life support system, strike it with
a homing attack. For the final hit, you must make your way back to the life
support system while doding the red balls. When you hit the system a sixth
time, the Biolizard will be defeated.

-----------------------------
THE FINAL HAZARD
Difficulty: Challenging
Characters: Sonic and Shadow
-----------------------------
This is the final boss battle of the game. It's Sonic and Shadow against the
prototype of the ultimate life form. Make your way over to the boss by
pressing either the A or B Buttons. Pressing the A Button makes you ascend
gradually, and pressing the B Button makes you descend gradually. Aim for the
red swelling area on the boss and attack it. You will then switch to Shadow.
Ascend and descend to avoid the lasers and the red balls as you continue to
damage the boss. Delivering the final blow is a pain, because two sweeping
lasers AND a large amount of red balls threaten to send you back into space.
Dodge all of these obstacles and use the A or B Button to home in on the
boss's swelling area. Once you've hit the boss six times, he will be defeated.
Congratulations! You've beaten the game and saved the world!
