Yet not the normal story mode, is it because rings don't carry over like time attack does or something?

As seen in the video above it's possible only in Time Attack, I sure am glad you can now use him in all modes now! Did anyone else discover this apart from me playing through time attack?

Guess I was the only one who knew this afterall. I think it's a cool easter egg by SEGA especially when they make Super Sonic turn back into Sonic after you finish it. The message at the end was cool aswell...

Huh, I didn't know this (since I've never bothered with Time Attack - but now I have a reason to)...

Hold on, does that mean you can use Super Sonic against bosses as well in Time Attack??

Yes I asked the uploader of the video clip and he said this..

"This challange for hardcore cause have clear at least all 3 act of Time Attacks Mad Gear Zone not hit once! Then beat Eggman in the boss battle in Mad Gear Act 4 "Either transforming or not Super Sonic" and hope you keep enough ring for final zone and stay Super Sonic through the rest of the final zone. I made eggman fragile with this attempt you can if do that. Must consume 238 or more rings to do."

His grammar seems off but cause he is Japanese we should let it slip...

I'm fairly certain rings don't accumulate stage to stage though. Unless he's exploiting something, I call fake.

It's not fake. It's a bug in the game which allowed you to acumilate rings in Time Attack and Sega still allowed you to play the next act though it didn't say it on the screen pressing the button command causes it to carry the rings over.

It seems that Sega had this planned from the start but removed it from Score Attack for some reason, I guess 3 acts would be not worthwhile keeping rings you get so you get it reset to 0 after each act is cleared.

Also if you think about it, in Time Attack your rings don't depeat after clearing a stage cause only your time gets saved for clearing the level, so this bug is easy to do... the video creator found it so kudos to him.

I'm not sure what you mean.

So, what you are essentially saying is, if I complete a stage in Time Attack (Mad Gear 1, for example)...and the screen shows up allowing me to either Retry or Return to Stage Select, and if I pick Stage Select and head to Mad Gear 2, that I will have all the leftover rings available from Mad Gear 1? Or is there something else I'd need to do? I remember there being a button you press to immediately jump into the next stage, but that's only for Score Attack I thought?

Btw, I've seen you before <_< I can't remember where. You ever frequent Pokemon Battle Revolution, Mario Kart DS, Mario Kart Wii, or Arkanoid DS boards on here?

Oops, I misread your post. You can press the button and move to next act even if it's not there? O_O I'll try this out...
