******************************************************************************

Hey Guys, welcome to my   
Achievement guide.  As you can tell from my user name,
my name is Gamer364.  This guide is designed to help players get all of the
achievements (or trophies for PS3 players) in this game.  This guide is really
different from all of my other achievement guides I did in the past, because
this is the first guide I did for an arcade game at all, and it includes a
road map in the Achievement/Trophy Overview stage of this guide. I would go
into detail with this game if I wanted to make long intros on you guys, and I
know you came here for the guide, so I better get on with the guide already.

Note: There are a couple of awards to get in this game as well, but as far as
I know, it's for Xbox 360 players only (both of them are Avatar Awards).  If
your playing the system mentioned, then see Stage 6 for details.  PS3 players
need no apply unless updated otherwise.


******************************************************************************
|                     Stage 3: Achievement/Trophy Overview                   |
******************************************************************************

Achievement/Trophy difficulty (on a scale of 1 through 5, 5 being the
                              hardest): 3

Number of Achievements (Xbox 360)
15 (with DLC)
12 without DLC

Number of Trophies (PS3)
15 (with DLC)
12 without DLC

Least amount of playthroughs to get all Achievements/Trophies:
7 (6 Characters and 1 final adventure, plus level replays)

Number of Missable Achievements/Trophies: 0

Details: If you played the Dreamcast and/or Gamecube versions of the game
before (especially the Gamecube version), you should have little to no problem
getting 100% on this game like I did before I offically began writing this. If
you never played either version of the game, You might run into some problems,
but the game is still perfectly beatable.  The only problems I see you having
as you go through the game are the following (not necessary in this order):

1. Beating Mission A with Big (especially Twinkle Park and Emerald Coast)
2. Raising your Chao for "Chao's Best Friend"
3. Missions 53 (with Sonic) and 54 (with Tails) *DLC Only*
4. Getting all 130 Emblems for "The Perfect Adventurer" *can be minor*
5. Beating some of Mission A with Sonic (especially Twinkle Park)

Get past all these, and you pretty much beaten the game with all of the
Gamerscore/Trophies unlocked.

Road Map

There are plenty of ways to tackle this game, but here's what I did:

Note: This Road Map assumes you bought the DX DLC of this game.  Also, I feel
like I'm actually telling you a story of how I got 100% on this game then
actually giving you a road map.  I'm sorry if this is the case.  Finally, this
road map assumes that you were playing the Xbox Live Arcade version of the
game.

1. Sonic's Story

When I first started this game my only option was to play as Sonic, so I
selected him.  I played through Stage 1: Emerald Coast, and I ended up 
unlocking Miles 'Tails' Prower as a playable character. 

Tails: Hey, don't use my whole name!

Me: Sorry Tails, but the achievement/trophy used your full name.  Sega's idea
I guess.

Anyway... One achievement down, 14 to go.

What I wanted to do next was go directly to the Trail option and do Emerald
Coast again until I beaten Mission A there, but I couldn't.  I figured "OK I
haven't beaten Sonic's story yet, and that's why I can't do that" and decided
to countinue Sonic's story.  As I playthrough Sonic's story, I ran into
Knuckles the Echidna who wanted me to hand over (read: demand that I give him)
my Chaos Emeralds.  I ended up in a fight with him (which I won), then Eggman
took my emeralds and I had to fight a boss (again I won).  After that,
Knuckles basicly kick himself for what he did, and he becomes a playable
character for me.   2 for 15 achievements unlocked.

I played through more of Sonic's story and wondered over to the casino area,
where I came across Amy Rose, and she became a character I could play as.  20%
of the achievments unlocked.

I ran through more of Sonic's story, and after I beaten Stage 8: Sky Deck and
took a platform to to the Ship's deck, I found myself in a battle with E-102
"y" (Gamma).  After I beaten him (or it), Amy gets in my way and tell me to
back off.  In doing so, I ended up unlocking Gamma as a playable character.
4 of 15 achievments unlocked.  

Shortly after that, I ran into Big the Cat who having problems getting his
frog Froggy back (yes, Big has a pet frog and he named it Froggy, no *******
joke).  Anyway, I helped him out by taking out Chaos 6, and Big becomes
playable.  1/3 of the achievments done.

After that, I go on to beat Sonic's story, and unlock "Sonic the Hedgehog",
making it 6 achievements unlocked out of 15.


2. After Sonic Story

I went on over to the Trials option of the game, and noticed I can play all
the stages again plus some of the Sub Games I unlocked.  I playthrough all the
trials (Mission B and A) then went on to Sub Games.  I ended up beating those,
and went on to play the Tail's story.

As I playthrough the game as Tails, I ran across a frog that swallowed a Chaos
Emerald and ran into the next Sub Game I haven't played before.  Played
through that, and went on to beat the game as Tails.  I did his Trials, the
Sand Boarding Sub Game and Missions and moved on to Knuckles.

Warring: Don't do Mission B of the Ice Cap Trial before doing Mission 54 of
Mission mode.  If you do, beating that mission will be even harder than it
already was.  Learn the hard way if you must.

I beaten his story, and did his trials and missions, then went on to Amy's
Story.  At some point of her story, I was captured by Zero (the robot chasing
Amy through out her story), but got released by Gamma.  After that, I came
across a Sub Game that I don't remember play during Sonic's, Tails' or
Knuckles' stories.  I played the Sub game, and got a Warrior Feather.

Note: If you want the Long Hammer as well, you will have to come back to the
ship when it crashes (but not after you finish the game).

Amy: Go back to the Ship, are you nuts!?!

Me: You have to do that at the end of your story anyway, so what's the big
idea?

Amy *notices Zero closing in*: Look behind you and you'll find out the big
deal really quick.

Me: That thing doesn't chase you until the player go through your story, and
you might have no choice but have Zero chase you.

Amy: I would continue this argument, if that thing was closing in on me so
fast *screams and takes off with Zero behind her*.

Me: OK, that just happend.

Anyway, I beaten her story, I went her Trials, her Hedgehog Hammer Sub Game
(twice, because the Story forced one doesn't count for some reason) and I got
the Sub Game Master Achievement.  7 of 15 achievements unlocked.

Did her Missons, and now it's Big's turn.  Seriously Big, fishing?

Big: Sega made me like that, and I'm quite happy with that role.

Me: Whatever floats Sega's boat I guess.

Anyway, I beaten Big's fishing story, did his trials and missions, then last,
but not least it's time for Gamma to take the wheel.  Beaten Gamma's story, I
can play as *spoiler* Super Sonic *end of spoiler* and boom, I unlock the
"Super Sonic" achievement.  More than 50% of achievements unlocked.

Then I've beaten his Trials for "The Fastest and Strongest" and completed his
missions for "Mission All Accomplished" bring my achievement unlocked total
to 10.

3. Operation: The Adventurous Chao

I decided to collect the emblems I didn't collect through out the course of
the 6 stories I went through for "The Adventurer" achievement, then head on
over to the Station Square Chao garden to start raising my chao.  It took a
long time, but I eventually unlock "Chao's Best Friend" making it 12
achievements unlocked out of 15.

4. The Perfect Adventurer and Metal Sonic

The only thing left for me to do at this point, was to play through the final
story, so I did that and unlocked "The Perfect Adventurer" (because I had 129
Emblems at this point).  Then I went to the Trials option of the game, and
noticed I could play as Metal Sonic and unlocked achievement for doing so.
Looks like I'm almost done with this game, 14 of 15 achievements unlocked.
Then I went through of its stages (which looked exactly like Sonic's Stages),
and I unlocked "Metal Sonic Master".  With 100% of the achievements unlocked,
that's all she wrote.

Summery
1. Played through as Sonic's story and beaten his trials and missions.
2. Went through the other 5 characters and did their trials and missions.
3. Picked up all unobtained emblems and went to the Station Square chao garden
to raise my chao's stats (getting "Chao's Best Friend" eventually).
4. Did the final adventure to get emblem number 130 to unlock Metal Sonic.
5. Completed all of Metal Sonic's trials.

Conclusion
This game is not too hard to 100% this game, even for beginners.  However, you
may have the problems metioned in the Details explation part of this Stage.
Get past these problems, and once you 100% this game, enjoy your
achievements/trophies.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-       Stage 4: The Game's Non-DLC Achievements and How to unlock them      -
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A. Miles "Tails" Prower
Description: Become friends with Tails.
Gamerscore: 10
Trophy Color: Bronze
Guide: Story-related, so it can't be missed.  This is the first
achievement/trophy you'll unlock, no matter how you plan on tackling this game
and Sonic is the only one who can unlock this.  You'll unlock this after you
beat Stage 1: Emerald Coast.

B. Knuckles the Echidna
Description: Become friends with Knuckles.
Gamerscore: 10
Trophy Color: Bronze
Guide: Story-related, so it can't be missed.  Sonic and Tails can unlock this.
After you've beaten Stage 4: Ice Cap (or Stage 3 for Tails) you'll find
Knuckles in the Mystic Ruins Adventure field near the waterfall.  Knuckles
will ask you to (read: demand that you) hand over whatever emeralds you have
to him.  You and Knuckles will end up in a fight (which you will win), then 
you have to take on Chaos 4.  Beat that boss, and Knuckles becomes playable.

C. Amy Rose
Description: Become friends with Amy.
Gamerscore: 10
Trophy Color: Bronze
Guide: Story-related, so it can't be missed.  You can unlock this as Sonic,
Tails, or E-102 (Gamma).  As Sonic, after you beat the Sky Chase Act 1 Sub
game, you'll find amy at the area near the Casinopolis Stage.  No need to do
anything else there.

As Tails, after you beaten his Sky Deck stage, you'll go up a platform where
you come across E-102 (Gamma).  Beat Gamma, and Amy becomes playable. I think
you'll unlock the E-102 'y' achievement/trophy as well if you haven't already
unlocked it, but don't quote me 100% on it.

As E-102 (Gamma), on the Egg Carrier (after a flashback), he'll be ordered
by Eggman to get the Chaos Emerald that's around the bird's neck.  He finds
Amy in a cage, and after she get friendly with him, he decides to let her go.
That in turn will unlock the achievement/trophy.

D. E-102 "y"
Description: Become friends with E-102.
Gamerscore: 10
Trophy Color: Bronze
Guide: Story-related, so it can't be missed.  You can unlock this as Sonic,
Tails, Amy, or Big.  As Sonic, after you beat his Sky Deck stage, you'll go up
a platform where you come across E-102 (Gamma).  Beat Gamma, and he'll become
playable.

As Tails, after you beaten his Sky Deck stage, you'll go up a platform where
you come across E-102 (Gamma).  Beat Gamma, and Amy becomes playable. I think
you'll unlock the Amy Rose achievement/trophy as well, but again don't quote
me 100% on it.

As Amy, after you beaten her Twinkle Park stage and get captured by ZERO,
you'll find yourself in cage. E-102 (Gamma) comes in and wants her to give her
the bird that she runing around with.  Instead of doing that, she uses her
charm on him, and gets let out.  You'll unlock him as a playable character,
and the achievement/trophy after that.

As Big, all you need to do is to beat his Emerald Coast stage, and that's it.

Note: I read that you can unlock this as Knuckles as well, but I never read
how.  If someone can say whether or not this is indeed the case, I update it
and give that user credit.

E. Big the Cat
Description: Become friends with Big.
Gamerscore: 10
Trophy Color: Bronze
Guide: Story-related, so it can't be missed.  You can unlock this as Sonic,
Tails, or E-102 (Gamma).  As Sonic, not long after you beat Gamma, you'll find
Big who's having problems getting his frog back from Chaos 6.  Beat Chaos 6,
and Big becomes playable.

As Tails, after you beaten the Sandboarding Sub game and go through his
flashback, you'll be treated to a cutscene where Big spots his frog and makes
a grab for it.  This scares the living daylights out of Tails, and he lets go
of the frog (but not the Chaos Emerald).  After the cutscene's over, he'll
become playable.

As Gamma, all you need to do is to beat his Emerald Coast stage, and that's
it.

F. Sonic the Hedgehog
Description:  Clear the Sonic story. 
Gamerscore: 10
Trophy Color: Bronze
Guide: Story-related, so it can't be missed.  All you need to do is go through
all of his stages, and that's it.  You'll unlock this after you beat the final
boss (which for him it's the Egg Viper).

G. Super Sonic
Description: Clear all characters stories.
Gamerscore: 20
Trophy Color: Bronze
Guide: Story-related, so it can't be missed.  There are 6 character stories
for you to beat (1 that's already unlocked, and 5 you'll have to unlock).
Here's what you need to do in order to "clear" a story for a character:

Sonic: Complete the Final Egg stage then defeat Egg Viper.

Tails: Beat Eggman to the missle at Speed Highway then defeat him as Egg
Walker.

Knuckles: Find all emerald shards at Sky Deck then defeat Chaos 6.

Amy: Evade Zero using the balloon at Final Egg then defeat Zero at the Egg
Carrier.

Big: Catch Froggy at the Hot Shelter then pull Froggy out of Chaos 6.

E-102: Save your brother Zeta at the Hot Shelter then defeat E-101 Beta MKII.

Completing all 6 of the stories will make you 6 Emblems closer to getting "The
Perfect Adventurer" Achievement/Trophy, and unlock Super Sonic's Story.

H. The Fastest & Strongest
Description: Get Level A on all the Action Stages.
Gamerscore: 20
Trophy Color: Silver
Guide: This one's a long one, so expect a lot of reading.  In order to unlock
trial mode for each character, you have to beat each of their stories.  Once
you've done that, you'll be able to replay the Action Stages again, this time
for Missions B and A.  For the most part, Mission B requires you to get 50
Rings and beat the stage, while Mission A requires you to beat the stage under
a time limit.  There are some exemptions however, which are explained where
it applies.  Sonic's B and A Missions are get 50 Rings and beat the stage and
beat the stage under a certain time limit.  Here are the trial missions for
Sonic:

Emerald Coast:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Break the Capsule
Mission A: Get to the Capsule in 2:00:00 Minutes

Windy Valley:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Break the Capsule
Mission A: Get to the Capsule in 3:00:00 Minutes

Casinopolis:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Break the Capsule
Mission A: Get to the Capsule in 5:00:00 Minutes

Icecap:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Break the Capsule
Mission A: Get to the Capsule in 4:00:00 Minutes

Twinkle Park:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Break the Capsule
Mission A: Get to the Capsule in 3:00:00 Minutes

Speed Highway:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Break the Capsule
Mission A: Get to the Capsule in 2:30:00 Minutes

Red Mountain:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Break the Capsule
Mission A: Get to the Capsule in 3:00:00 Minutes

Sky Deck:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Break the Capsule
Mission A: Get to the Capsule in 5:00:00 Minutes

Lost World:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Break the Capsule
Mission A: Get to the Capsule in 4:30:00 Minutes

Final Egg:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Break the Capsule
Mission A: Get to the Capsule in 4:30:00 Minutes

Mission B should pose no problem for even Sonic Adventure beginners, so no
guide for those.  Mission A on the other hand can cause trouble for you.  My
advice for those, is to use the Spin Dashing technique (it's actually faster
then runing for some reason), and make use of any and all shortcuts you know
and/or learned in the stages.

Sonic's Upgrades

1. Light Speed Shoes*
Found At: Station Square
Where: In the Sewers after Windy Valley
What it does: Makes you do a Light Speed Dash if charged up and near some
rings.
Recomended:
Used Often in story: Yes

2. Crystal Ring
Found At: Station Square
Where: In the hotel after picking up the Light Speed Shoes the earilest.
What it does: Cuts time down on how long it takes to charge up for the Light
Speed Dash.
Recomended: Yes
Used Often in story: Yes

3. Ancient Light*
Found At: Mystic Ruins
Where: In the hotel after picking up the Light Speed Shoes the earilest.
What it does: Allows you to Light Speed Dash on enemies as well as rings.
Recomended: No
Used Often in story: No

*Story Forced

Tails' B and A Missions are get 50 Rings and beat Sonic to the Capsule and
Beat a Faster Sonic (with the exemption of Stage 5, where Robotnik/Eggman
takes Sonic's place).  Here are the trial missions for Tails:

Windy Valley:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Break the Capsule before Sonic
Mission A: Beat a Faster Sonic to the Capsule

Casinopolis:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Break the Capsule before Sonic
Mission A: Beat a Faster Sonic to the Capsule

Icecap:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Break the Capsule before Sonic
Mission A: Beat a Faster Sonic to the Capsule

Sky Deck:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Break the Capsule before Sonic
Mission A: Beat a Faster Sonic to the Capsule

Speed Highway:
Mission B: Get 50 Rings and Get to the Missile before Robotnik
Mission A: Beat a Faster Robotnik to the Missile 

Again, Mission B should pose no problem to you, so no guide there.  Mission A
is basicly the same the Story forced Missions, Sonic/Robotnik (Eggman) is
faster is all.  There are green loops that give you a boost as you race, so
use them as well as any and all shortcuts you came across as you played.

Warring: If you have the DX DLC downloaded, don't make the same mistake I
made, and do Icecap's Mission B before Mission 54 of Mission mode.  I ended up
doing just that, and got punished for it, and got punished bad.

Tails' Upgrades

1. Jet Anklet
Found At: Station Square
Where: In the canal behind Twinkle Park (there's an opening there)
What it does: Makes you fly faster.
Recomended: Yes
Used Often in story: Yes

2. Rhythm Badge*
Found At: In a flashback
Where: To the left of the entrance to the Echidna Temple when you are in the
past.
What it does: Allows you to spin faster (and pretty much forever).
Recomended: Yes and No
Used Often in story: No

*Story Forced

Knuckles' B and A Missions are get 3 pieces of the Master Emerald without
touching the hint balls once and do it again in under 1 Minute (with the
exemption of Stage 5, where you have to do it in 2 Minutes or less).  Here are
the trial missions for Knuckles:

Speed Highway:
Mission B: Get the 3 pieces of the Master Emerald without using hint balls
Mission A: Get the 3 pieces of the Master Emerald in 1:00:00 Minutes

Casinopolis:
Mission B: Get the 3 pieces of the Master Emerald without using hint balls
Mission A: Get the 3 pieces of the Master Emerald in 1:00:00 Minutes

Red Mountain:
Mission B: Get the 3 pieces of the Master Emerald without using hint balls
Mission A: Get the 3 pieces of the Master Emerald in 1:00:00 Minutes

Lost World:
Mission B: Get the 3 pieces of the Master Emerald without using hint balls
Mission A: Get the 3 pieces of the Master Emerald in 1:00:00 Minutes

Sky Deck:
Mission B: Get the 3 pieces of the Master Emerald without using hint balls
Mission A: Get the 3 pieces of the Master Emerald in 2:00:00 Minutes

Mission B poses no problem.  Just make sure you don't touch the hint balls,
and your golden.  Mission A sounds and looks impossible, but it's actually
pretty easy to do them all in under 1 Minute.  This is what you do to easily
beat the time limit:

Look for the emerald pieces, but don't actually collect them.  That way, you
know where they're at, and after you restart the mission, it's pretty much a
race to beat the clock.  Don't exit the stage, or the emerald pieces with
change due to the random nature of the stages with Knuckles' story.

Knuckles' Upgrades

1. Shovel Claws*
Found At: Mystic Ruins
Where: A cave near Tails' House
What it does: Allows you to dig.
Recomended: Yes
Used Often in story: Somewhat

2. Punching Gloves

Where: On a cliff above Big's house in the jungle.
What it does: Allows you to use the Maximum Heat Knuckles attack.
Recomended: No
Used Often in story: No

*Story Forced

Amy's B and A Missions are get 50 Rings and beat reach the balloon and
reach the balloon under a certain time limit.  Here are the trial missions for
Amy:

Twinkle Park:
Mission B: Get 50 rings and get the balloon
Mission A: Get the Balloon in 2:00:00 Minutes

Hot Shelter:
Mission B: Get 50 rings and get the balloon
Mission A: Get the Balloon in 6:30:00 Minutes

Final Egg:
Mission B: Get 50 rings and get the balloon
Mission A: Get the Balloon in 2:30:00 Minutes

Amy's mission A's are not hard to beat.  Just keep runing through the stages,
while doging Zero (hit him with your hammer if you have to) and your golden.
They're perfectly do-able without her upgrades which has been listed below.

Amy' Upgrades

Used Often in story: Somewhat

Lock on to multiple targets to buy yourself for time.  Otherwise, Good Luck,
you'll need it for some of these missions (I know I had a little bit of
trouble with Red Mountain's Mission B, believe it or not).

I. Sub Game Master
Description: Get all Emblems of the Sub Games
Gamerscore: 20
Trophy Color: Silver
Guide: As you go through the game, you'll come across Sub Games.  This usally
happends after you complete the Action Stages.  You only have to get the
Emblems in 5 Sub Games, and there's two Emblems per Sub Game, so there are 10
Emblems to get for the achievement/trophy.  Here's the 5 Sub Games you have to
do, and the score to beat for each one:

Sky Chase Act 1: 8000

Sky Chase Act 2: 20000

Sand Hill: 10000

Twinkle Circuit: Your time from Mission B

Hedgehog Hammer: Your score from the first time you played this

With the Sky Chase Sub Game (Acts 1 and 2), I'm not sure how to explain it, so
I'm going to have you look at Youtube videos for both Acts.

Sky Chase Act 1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWa2fGdjFiU&

Sky Chase Act 2
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUUUW6soBI4&

Both videos belong to Cackman of Youtube.  Both Acts can be played as Sonic or
as Tails.

As far as the Sand Hill Sub Game goes, you have to make sure you don't lose
your X Multiplier even once.  Knowing good route to take will make sure that
never happends.  Watch out for any and all obstacles and hit the speed ramps
as you go through the Sub Game.  This Sub Game can be played by either Sonic
or Tails.  Here's a Youtube Video below if your still having trouble.

Again, credit goes to Cackman of Youtube.

With Twinkle Circuit, try not to go so fast for Mission B.  Mission A will be
easier that way.  You can use any of the 6 characters for this.

With Hedgehog Hammer, don't go nuts the first time you play this.  Make sure
you get a score like 2100 the first time, then replay it in trial mode.  If
you don't get the Emblem the first time, advance the story, then try again,
but again, don't go to town.  If then you still didn't get the Emblem, try it
in trial, and don't go crazy.  You should get it then.  After that, play the
game again, and this time smack as many Hedgehogs as you wish.  Only Amy can
do this Sub Game.

J. Chao's Best Friend
Description: Get all Emblems of the Chao Race.
Gamerscore: 20
Trophy Color: Silver
Guide: Another long one, so expect a lot of reading (again).  This game has
the Chao System from the Dreamcast and Gamecube versions of the game.  For
this achievement/trophy, make sure that you raise your Chao's stats high
enough to win all the Jewel races.  Before you can enter your Chao into the
Chao races, you'll need to raise your Chao(s).  Before you begin to attempt
this achievement/trophy, you have to ask yourself these questions.

First,  where do you want to raise your Chao(s) at. Station Square, Mystic
Ruins, or the Egg Carrier?

If you want to raise them at Station Square, go to
the hotel, and go up an elevator.  If you want to raise them at the Mystic
Ruins, the go to a cave near Tails' House, and take a mine cart ride there.
If you want to raise them at the Egg Carrier, first type E-G-G-M-A-N at the
Chao Garden enternce, then head on a telporter to get their.

Station Square has direct access to the Chao Black Market, and the Chao races,
so I highly recommend you go there, but it doesn't matter.

Second, ask yourself this question:

Do I want to raise one Chao, or multiple Chao?

If you want to raise more than one Chao, then ask yourself this question:

How many Chao do I want to raise?

If you decide to raise one Chao, then you'll have to work it all of its stats.
If you want to raise multiple Chao (like two), then you only have to work on
the stats required for each race, but it's going to take longer (in my book).

Lastly, which character do you want to raise your Chao(s) with?  Sonic, Tails,
Knuckles, Amy, Big, or Gamma?  Again, it matters not.

Here's what I did for this achievement/trophy:

1. Raised only one Chao.
2. Raised it at Station Square.
3. Raised it as Sonic.

Once you get to the Chao Garden of your choice, the first thing you want to
do, is to get yourself a couple of Chao Fruit.  Head on over to the Chao Black
Market, and check that fruit your looking for is there.  If it isn't, you'll
have to check back again in a bit.  If so, buy the Chao Fruit, walk out, drop
the fruit, and go back in to buy another one (the game only lets you carry one
item at a time for some stupid reason).  The Chao Fruit will cost you 200
rings to buy.

After that, a Chao Egg must hatch.  You can either wait until it hatches by
itself (which takes too long), or you can speed up its hatching process really
quick.  To hatch a Chao Egg quickly, you can either throw it around until it
hatches (the Chao will hate you for that), or you can press and hold the
action button (X or B for Xbox 360, Square or () for PS3), and hold the ctrl
stick in any dirction (for as long as you think you need, but you shouldn't
have to do it for long).

Once your Chao hatches, give it the Chao Fruit, and keep giving it to your
Chao until it finishes the fruit.  I'm 100% sure that it won't be at level 1
once it's done eating it, so give it the other one.  Onces it finishes its
Chao fruit, then check its stats.  What's your Chao's Stongest stat?  What's
your Chao's Weakest?  My Chao's stongest point was its Fly stat, while its
weakest was its Swim stat.

Chao have 5 different stats to work on:

Swim
Fly
Run
Power
Stamina

Now you need to raise your Chao's stats via animals from other stages.  You
can get animals from different stages in the game.  Sonic has access to most
of these stages, which is why I picked him as the Chao raiser.  Here are the
Stages to get your animals at:

Swim animals Sea Other, Penguin and Seal - Emerald Coast
Fly animals Swallow, Parrot and Peacock - Sky Deck
Run animals Deer, Rabbit and Kangaroo - Speed Highway
Power animals Gorilla, Lion and Elephant - Red Mountain

Note: For Fly, some people have said to go to Windy Vally for the Flying
animals, but there's very few foes their, so I woundn't recommend it.  Also,
Fly is 100% optional (therefore not necessary for the Chao races).

I would train your Chao's stats to like 500 points for the beginner races, and
2000 points for Flying, and 1000 everywhere else for the Jewel races (except
for Stamina, that can go as high as you want).  Like I said, my Chao's weakest
stat is Swim, so I would have to go to the Emerald Coast stage first.  You can
only carry 10 animals at a time, so if you try to pick up number 11, the first
one you grab will get replaced by your 11th grab.  I would recommend ending
the stage once you have 10 of all Swim, Fly, Run or Power animals (if you have
that many).  Then give the animals to your Chao (giving it fruit for Stamina
afterwards).  Keep doing this until your Chao reaches the suggested stat
points.  Once that happends, move on with Chao's 2nd weakest stat, and repeat
the same process in a different stage.  Keep doing this until all of your stat
points are where I suggest at (except for Stamina).

Note: If your raising multiple Chao, then I would recommend putting your first
Chao in another Chao Garden, and grab another Egg and repeat the process for
your 2nd Chao.  Once you took care of that, if your raising three Chao or more
(I would cap it at 5, one for each Chao Race), then repeat the process for
the remaining Chao you want to have race for you.

Now you can start the Chao Races.

When you first enter through the doors to the Chao races, your only option is
to enter the Beginner Race, so click that.  Then your given a choice of which
Chao you want to enter the race with.  If you raised one Chao, you have one
choice.  If you raised multiple Chao then just select a Chao.  After that, you
start off with a choice of 4 races you can have your Chao race at.  So, why
did I cap it 5 Chao, when you have 4 races to choose from?  Because after your
Chao(s) win the first four, you will unlock number five.  Once the Chao of
your choice wins number 5, you'll unlock the Jewel Courses
Here are the races your Chao(s) must complete in order to unlock the Jewel
Courses and what each one tests:

Pearl Course - Mainly tests your Chao's Power, but some Run is involved
Amethyst Course - Mainly tests your Chao's Run but some Fly is involved
Sapphire Course - Mainly tests your Chao's Run, Power, and Swim but some Fly
is involved
Ruby Course - Tests your Chao's Swim, but it'll have to run briefly.
Emerald Course (unlocked by winning the first 4) - Tests all of your Chao's
abilites at once

You'll notice you really haven't won anything besides braging rights.  When
you return to the Chao race entry, you'll notice you've unlocked the Jewel
races.  If your Chao's stats are less than what I suggested for the Jewel
races, then you'll have to train your Chao's stats some more.  If your raising
multiple Chao, that can take you even longer to get this achievement/trophy if
you haven't already got all of your Chao's stats that high.  Otherwise, read
the next paragraph.

Once you pick the Jewel races, and picked your Chao, you have the same 5 races
to pick from the Beginner Races.  You might be thinking "OK, My Chao's got
these races, because it's the same thing from the beginner races."  Well...
that's not necessary true.  Your Chao will be racing against more advanced
Chao, so don't expect your Chao to win the Jewel Races the first time.  For
every Jewel race your Chao wins, you get an Emblem.  There are 5 Jewel races,
so there are 5 Emblems to get.  Once your Chao (or all of your Chao) wins all
5 Jewel races, you win the achievement/trophy.  Here's my Chao's stats when I
got this:

Swim - 1015
Fly - 1003
Run - 1067
Power - 1070
Stamina - 0532

Note: You'll noticed my Chao's Fly stat was not where it was suggested.  Like
I said though, Fly if purely optional, so I didn't really have to work on it.
I was going to work on Fly more if it didn't win the Ruby nor Emerald Courses,
but it won both races, so I didn't have to.

Warring: Save the Emerald Jewel Course for when you beat the first four Jewel
course.  If you don't, a black chao will appear and you'll be lucky if you get
close to the finish line when it overtakes you.  Save yourself the time and
frustration, and heave my warring.

L. The Perfect Adventurer
Description: Get 130 Emblems.
Gamerscore: 40
Trophy Color: Gold
Guide: You'll get this as you go for 100% on this game, so may take a while,

following (but not necessary in this order):

1. Complete all Action Stages (Levels A, B, and C)

==============================================================================

A. Metal Sonic
Description: Get all 130 Emblems by playing Sonic Adventure DX.
Gamerscore: 15

Guide: This one's way too easy.  This stacks with "The Perfect Adventurer",
but won't unlock right way.  You'll have to go into trial mode and you'll see
that character as an option.  Then the achievement/trophy will unlock.  I had
the character highlighted just to make sure, but hopefully you won't have to
do that.

B. Metal Sonic Master
Description: Get Level A on all the Action Stages by using Metal Sonic.
Gamerscore: 15
Trophy Color: Sliver
Guide: You are basicly running through the same stages Sonic has, so it
shouldn't take too long.  Metal Sonic's Mission C always wants you to get to
the end as fast as you can.  Mission B wants you to grab 50 Rings and get to
the end (again, take your time through the stage).  Mission A wants you to
get to the end of the stage under a certain time limit.  Here are the trial

Once you Mission A your last level as Metal Sonic, it'll unlock.  If your

Like I said, your running through the same stages Sonic went through, so look
at Sonic's section.

|                          Stage 7 : How to Contact me                       |
==============================================================================

You have 2 Main ways of contacting me:

1. Send me a E-mail
2. Send me a message on my Gamertag on X-Box Live

My E-mail address shadowjohn91@yahoo.com.
My Gamertag is Gamer364.  This can be done only through a text message.

E-mail or Message me if you:

A. See a spelling error: I may have made spelling errors as I was writing
this.

B. Have a question that needs asking: You may have something that needs
clearing up or something to that affect.

C. Have a correction to make: I'm not 100% sure on some of the stuff mentioned
though out the guide.

D. Want to use my guide on your website: I personally have no problem
letting you use my guide on your website, as long as you ask me first, and you
give me credit for it.

E. Think you see someone using my guide without permission: I don't like it
when people steal my stuff (at least, not without asking me first).  I don't
do it to other people (at least without giving other people credit for the
idea), so why do it to me anyway?

F. Have something to add-on to this or that/there's something I forgot to
include: If there something you think I should have included, but I didn't,
you are encouraged to send me an Email for this or that.

Do note that if you do decide you want to message me, make sure if the topic
is about Sonic Adventure.

As of right now the only sites that have permission to use my guide:
A. GameFAQs (I have an ancount with them, so they don't really need my
permission.)
More to come (maybe).

Don't even think about email me if you are going to send me:
A. Hate Mail
B. Spam
C. Name Calling mail
D. Barelly readable/Unreadable mail
E. Mail with mostly creative words (if you get my drift)
F. A letter of criticism

Letter A I take offence to, because I don't send hate mail to no one.

I have a Spam safeguard with yahoo, and it'll tell me if I have spam or not
with Letter B.  Also, if I think your trying sending me spam on Xbox Live,
don't think I won't wirte a complant about you, and/or tell Microsoft on you.

With letter C, I also take offence, because I get name called in school.

Letter D, If your sending me an E-mail, have spell check avaiable to you and
your not sure of your spelling, then why not use it?

Letter E, Unless I messed up that badly, there's really no reason for that
anyway.

Letter F, You can send those kinds of letter, as long as I don't find offence
to it.

All of these things can and will make me think your a bad person, when in
reality your probably not.  All in all, just don't do it.

Follow these rules, and if you add-on and/or correct something, I'll give you
credit for it.

Note: Don't get discouraged if I don't answer you right away.  Sometimes, I
might be on the Computer and sometimes I'll be on Xbox Live.  Your best bet
is to send both an E-mail and an Xbox Live message.  That way if I don't get
one of your messages, I'll still be able to get the other message.  Even
then, I might still not get your message right away.
