History:

v. 1.0, 4/16/2011   This guide has been a work in progress for 
sometime, but I added fresh information on April 16, 2011, which is
the day I uploaded this. The only extra changes will be any boss 
completion times that a reader submits that are better than mine or
updates to the website list.

I have tips and suggestions to help you always get an S-Rank on 
each boss. The bosses are in the order of the Gaia Gate locations 
on the Extras screen.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
(1.) Apotos/Mazuri boss: The Egg Beetle 
(My best time: 59.732 sec.)

To start, just collect rings. Watch the machine, and when Eggman says
something pay attention. He'll start throwing boxes THAT CAN MOVE.
He'll throw 3 boxes, then try to snap you with the pincers. Here's
the best reason to have lots of rings. Don't Homing Attack him unless
you don't have any bars left on the Boost Gauge. If you even have one
bar, let it rip! If done correctly, you can hit Eggman 3 times! Dash
into him when his shield's down, then try to stay in the center of
the path and continue to speed boost. If you hit him 3 times, he
can't be hit a 4th time in a row. 

After 2 or 3 hits, you will see him out to the side of the path.
He will fire rockets. Check the order that they appear on the left 
side (they always launch from there), that's the order that they launch 
in. For example if they appear top, middle, bottom, that's the order 
they will fire in. Jump to avoid them, then he will try to snap you 
again. Wait until he snaps then you must Homing Attack him in the side 
view. 

It switches back to the normal view, and do what you did the first 
time. If his health is low enough he'll start snapping 2 times in the 
side view so watch out for that. If you practice enough, you can do 
this in under 60 seconds!


(2.) Spagonia Boss: The Egg Devil Ray 
(My Best time: 2:50.874)

Again collect rings, but stay out of the laser's path. Remember, 
boosting is a great way to collect rings. When Eggman turns off his 
shield, Homing Attack him. You can only do this one time until the view
returns to that angle.  Then a side view reveals him shooting all the
lasers in a clockwise path around the screen. When there are no lasers
in front of Eggman, Homing attack for best results. If you get hit by 
a laser while attacking, you will get hurt.
After 2 hits, in the view you started the boss on, he will gather 3 
lasers to each side and block you in. Stay right in front of him and 
attack when he drops his shield.
When he needs only 3 hits to be killed, he starts shooting little balls
that do hurt you. Run around or jump over them. This will be shown in a
top view. Also, if you don't hurt him when in top view, he gets all his
lasers in front of him and fires a wide purple ray. Get to the sides to
avoid damage. You can only miss one opportunity to attack and still get
the S rank time.

(3.) Chun-nan Boss: Dark Gaia Phoenix. 
S time: 5:00 min. (My best time: 3:11.711)

The Chun-nan boss is fought right after beating the 3rd Chun-nan night
level for the first time. All Night bosses give 1000 Dark Gaia Force 
Points (the red orbs) each time you beat them.
You will see it shoot fiery feathers at you, then eventually fly around
near a platform. Get up to the one it flies nearest, grab water and 
throw it at the bird.  When you've hit it with enough water
(1-3 barrels)it will fly to the very center and land. (This is the
tiny island in the center.) Attack only the legs, only those take 
damage. 
As soon as the screen changes to something where Sonic jumps 
automatically, start shaking the Remote and Nunchuk like you're 
climbing up a pole. Keep going until you see Sonic slam the Phoenix 
on the ground. Repeat this 3 times to win.

Also, after it gets hurt or if you're too close to it, it will 
slam the ground and cause a "ring of fire" to go out from where 
it landed. Jump to avoid it.


(4.) Holoska Boss: Dark Moray. 
S time: 5:00 min. (My best time: 2:08.398)

Looks a little like a Gyarados (Pokemon) huh?

To get the force field down, destroy the purple lighted things. Destroy
all 4 to get up to the boss. Hit it in the big green bulge right in 
front. After a few hits, he coughs up tanks. Throw these to freeze it,
then just keep hitting it, it will eventually knock you back down as 
a green bulge explodes. Repeat this, but you can hit it anywhere after
destroying the first bulge.
After he loses 2 green bulges, he throws you back, but now he launches
ice balls while you're on the lower area. and the bees appear at 
this point.  Again, destroy the purple things, get up there, you 
hurt him, freeze the moray, you hurt him a lot more, and after you 
destroy all 3 of the green bulges, the boss is done!


(5.) Shamar Boss: Dark Guardian. 
S time: 5:00 min. (My best Time: 44.266 sec)

Looks tough, but if you have Level 5 attack by now, this guy can be 
taken down in under 45 seconds. The only problem will be when he 
does something to summon lightning. He will gain health during 
that until the lightning is gone. Guarding (hold Z) will save 
time and health. 


(6.) Adabat Boss: The Egg Lancer 
(My best time: 1:40.432)

Wow, been a while since the last day boss.

Collect rings. When you get to the part where you're running on 
the rock wall after the lasers, dash him when the rocks are JUST 
about to hit him. This can be a free hit, but it's a hard one to 
get if you don't time it right. 
Now we go back to Egg Devil Ray style, top view with the little 
balls being shot out. Homing Attack him as many times as you can. 
You can get 2 hits in, maybe 3. 

When you get to the part where you push buttons, YOU MUST GET 
ALL 4 RIGHT. If not, you will lose a life, and you must start 
over. When you hit all 4 right, you will get several hits worth of 
damage for free. Just be aware of chances to attack and you'll 
win quickly. 
If you hit him while on the rocks, got 3 Homing Attacks during 
the Egg Devil Ray part, and get the button combo right, you'll
probably beat my time.
After the boss there's a big plot twist...


We are finally at the last world! Eggman finally made Eggmanland 
a reality but it's not staying up for long. Eggmanland has 2 bosses, 
and you can't get to either until you beat all 8 (3 Day and 5 Night) 
levels. This will take about 30 to 60 minutes to get to, so if you're 
not to the 1st boss yet, get there.
BTW, if you beat every enemy and smashed every pot and jar possible 
in the night levels(without repeating levels), you should max out on 
your Dark Gaia Force and have Lv. 5 on every stat and all moves by 
the end of Eggmanland night level 1. On the first run through the 
first night level here, you can get a maximum of 6000 D.G. force.


(7.a) Eggmanland Boss 1: Egg Dragoon (Eggman calls it Prototype-1)
S time: 7:00 min. (My best time: 1:32.632)
This is the last night level boss. Simply take every chance to attack. 
You must hit the glowing blue spot to hurt his robot. When he's using
the Machine Gun, dash around on the edge (you can't fall off) and
when he's close enough get every hit in. He can throw Ice Balls like 
the Moray did.

Tip: Use Earthshaker to do some slow, controlled damage. It sometimes 
damages him when he's about to split the rock you're on!  But for the 
most part, stay with starting a combo with your right hand, and doing
5 hits in a row to get straight arm punches. Combos beginning with the
left hand will cause something like a clap to happen on the 5th hit.

When he's down to 2/3 health, he splits the rock you're on. Get the 
rings while falling, those are the only ones. He breaks the second 
rock when he's down to 1/3 health.
When you're on the 3rd rock, he'll use an electric attack and it 
will stun you unless you double jump to avoid it.
You can kill him in under 2:00 easy, even though the target 
time's 7:00. 
A small cutscene shows the rise of...


(7.b) Eggmanland boss 2: DARK GAIA! (My best time: 6:13.730)
This has 3 parts and awards you one Moon Medal if you beat the S time.


(7.b.1) Part 1: Boxing with the Gaia Colossus! 
(About 0:55 to 1:10 long if done the best way.)
Read the instructions. NEVER USE THE 2-HAND ATTACK!!!! Just keep 
dodging and punching. Try to punch with the same hand Dark Gaia 
attacks with. This causes more damage and is shown with the word 
"Counter!" on the right side of the screen.


(7.b.2) Part 2: Day-type courses. 
(about 2:30 if you don't die anytime, for a total of 3:30 to 4:00)
Just look for any time saver, as this is where the second longest 
part is. This works just like a normal day level.
On the second course, there is a spot where you press B, then A. You 
must be very quick to do this. This could save 5-10 seconds, perfect 
for that last moon medal. At the end of each course, you will see a 
button combination. If you mess up, you will lose a life and start at 
the beginning of the course. There are 3 courses in all.


(7.b.3) Part 3: Super Sonic vs. Perfect Dark Gaia 
(2 to 4 minutes, S time is 7:30)
It just isn't a Sonic game if you don't have Super Sonic.  
I usually get to this part with about 3:45-4:00 on the clock.

While Chip is talking, get every ring you can. Don't go very far up 
or down, or you won't be able to hit the eyes. You need at least 17 
rings at all times if you're not great at dodging attacks.
10 to attack, and each hit from Dark Gaia's claws makes you lose 5 
rings. If you have 0 rings, you will die. And you lose a ring 
naturally about once every 5 seconds. 

When you see a red target over an eye, shake the remote and steer 
around the rocks. Hitting the rocks doesn't hurt you, but it stops you 
from going any father forward. You don't get the rings back, either. 
You can attack while Chip is talking to you. 

When you hit 2 eyes, an attack will happen with all claws. You will 
get a little more time to prepare for it, but if you aren't in the 
very center of the screen, you will lose 10 rings. 

After 5 eyes, D.G. fires purple balls of energy at you. If you are
hit, you lose 5 rings. If you hit A at the right time (A appears 
on-screen), you will kick it back, and Dark Gaia will be paralyzed. 
Either collect tons of rings, or if you see any open eyes, attack! 
When paralyzed, all open eyes stay open, all eyes that haven't been 
hit and are closed stay closed, and he can't attack for about 10-15 
seconds. 

Also when you hit 5 eyes, the rocks will start to move any direction. 
After hitting all 6 little eyes, the big eye finally opens. The rocks
move very quickly. Look at the corners and top, left, right, and bottom 
of the screen, and if you dodge all the rocks, you have beaten the main 
portion of the game.


Information on the Side Doors in Gaia Gates:
You need anywhere from 12 sun and 15 moon to 99 sun and 69 moon medals
to open the doors.

For the side doors in the Gaia Gate, you MUST beat Dark Gaia in under 
7:30 and have the other 68 moon medals in the game to access a bunch 
of them. Item rewards are mostly stuff on the Extras menu, but 1-Ups 
(which permanently adds 1 life to your total that you start a level 
with, up to 14 lives total) and Secret Missions are hidden in there 
too. Collecting a certain number of items unlocks a few secret missions 
too. Collecting all of the items except the last movie will unlock the 
level where you can collect that movie.
If you collect every item in every level, there are 100 Sun Medals and 
68 Moon medals possible before reaching Dark Gaia, and 103 sun and 71 
moon medals total.
