By Angnix (Angela Petersen) firstname.lastname@example.org ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ I'm putting this right in the front of the guide because there are just certain questions that keep coming up again and again and again about this game I want to make clear at the beginning. Remember, there is more guide after this section!!! Q. Do I have to find all the Silver Medals in Episode Mode? A. Only Town Area Silver Medals, and you can always go back and get them later as explained below. Act Silver Medals can also be grabbed in Trial Select Mode after you have completed the Act in Episode Mode. Just select which Act you want to go back to. But remember the Silver Medals do not appear in Hard Mode. Q. How do I Silver Medals in the Town Areas after I complete each Episode? A. Go back to Episode Select and you will be in one of the Town Areas. Each of the three Town Area has two Gates that lead to the other Town Areas, but when you go back two of the gates are closed. For Sonic and Shadow, you can go to Forest and New City from Castle Town, but the gate between Forest and New City is closed. For Silver, you can go to Castle Town and New City from Forest, but the gate between Castle Town and New City is closed. Q. What do I get for getting all 380 Silver Medals? A. I wrote a special section at the end of this guide about that. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Special Thanks: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Scorpion: Pointing out a medal that should be described better in Kingdom Valley. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Legal Notes: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ This guide cannot be placed on any site without my permission.

Last Episode Silver Medal Locations Act: End of the World 6. Medal Rewards 7. Questions? ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 1. Introduction and Tips: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Silver Medals are found in Town Areas and Acts. Grabbing Silver Medals help you get Gold Medals (look at rewards section for more details). When you get all Silver Medals for one character in the Town Areas, you won't see a Gold Medal screen for the Gold Medal you just earned, but you will find it listed in the Gold Medal Results section. To get Silver Medals in the Acts after completing an Episode, just simply choose that Act in Trial Select, but note that Silver Medals do not appear in Hard Mode. To find Silver Medals in the Soleanna Town Areas after you beat an Episode you need to return to Episode Mode again to get back into the Town Areas. Some Gates are closed, but you can still get into all three Town Areas as follows: For Sonic and Shadow, you can go to Forest and New City from Castle Town, but the gate between Forest and New City is closed. For Silver, you can go to Castle Town and New City from Forest, but the gate between Castle Town and New City is closed. Note that if you have not completed the Episode yet, you will not be able to travel to all Town Areas. Silver Medal Totals: Sonic: 130 Silver: 120 Shadow: 120 Last Episode: 10 Total: 380 In this guide to make it easier, most Acts are split apart into different sections created by loading screens, support characters or other things and are often made clearer by saying something like "Rouge's section" or "Snowboarding section". Some Acts have multiple routes, so I might have to describe in detail where you need to take a certain path. How much of a walkthrough I have to write directly depends on if the particular Act is linear or has many paths. Castle Town is split into sections since it is so big and there are 20 Silver Medals here for each character. Soleanna Castle Town consists of islands connected by bridges, so I describe where they are on each island. Of course some between areas, on bridges or even under bridges, those got shoved into one of the areas it is between. These would be great on a map, but I don't have a very good Soleanna Map to plot them out, yet... maybe someday, so I described their location in Soleanna the best I could. You might need to be pretty familiar with Soleanna to follow the Town Area locations. Tips: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ If you hear the medal noise, you are very close. You can hear this noise better if you turn off the level music in Extras/Sound. Not all Silver Medals can be found this way because they are not visible and don't make a noise until you do something else in-level. If you die after grabbing a Silver Medal, you will still have it if you have more lives left when you complete the Act. You will have all the Silver Medals you have picked up if you make it to the end of the Act and then Save the Game afterwards. But if you get a Game Over you will lose it. Dying to grab a Silver Medal comes in handy because you can grab a Silver Medal even if it causes you to lose one life, but hurts you if like me you grab a hidden Medal, but it doesn't register in your mind you never got to the end of the level with it... I literally was looking for Silver Medals that I didn't need to because I thought I had one I really didn't. Silver Medals like to hide on the other side of pillars, so turn around quite a bit if you are looking for them. They like to hide in areas of the level that are harder to get to. They also like to hide in objects like boxes, vases and statues. You will usually see a little bit of a glow coming from the object, but sometimes you can't see it till you smash something. Some Silver Medals will only appear if you defeat certain enemies or even do other random things. Usually it's a group of enemies you don't normally have to defeat to continue on with the Act, often they will appear shortly after defeating one group of enemies, so wait around a bit after killing everything in the area. Also when you defeat a group of enemies, look behind you, the Silver Medal will sometimes appear in back of you. In Castle Town, a lot of Silver Medals hang out on rooftops. If you explore enough, you will find springs that will take you up there. Sonic can use the Purple Gem to Infinite Jump so you can reach many Silver Medals with a little persistence, just remember you can't do this during Boarding, Princess, and Super Speed sections. Silver can stand on a box and use his psychokenesis to levitate to higher areas which will allow him to reach several Silver Medals. Shadow can stop in mid-air by just pressing and holding the Attack button to charge up a Chaos Spear. This helps Shadow get Silver Medals he needs to fall into because you can stop, adjust your fall then stop again to steer. Don't Jump Dash however until the very end, or you will not be able to stop using Chaos Spear anymore. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 2. Sonic's Silver Medal Locations: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Sonic Act 1: Wave Ocean ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ First Sonic Section: 1. The second time you find yourself sliding on water you will see it to your left. 2. On top of the lighthouse behind the light. 3. After the lighthouse keep grinding the rail to the end and go that route. When sliding on water through the tunnel it's to the left. 4. After the "tiki hut" section just before the next checkpoint jump off the dock and press the Attack button to try to catch the Light Dash rings to the Rainbow Hoop so you can run on the side of the wall for a Silver Medal, or if you fall down to the checkpoint you can still jump onto the right wall and get it. Tails' Section: 5. When you fly to the island at the beginning, turn to your left and then hold down Attack button to do a Dummy Ring Snipe, aim then let go to fire Dummy Rings at the two arched rock formations. After destroying the rocks look carefully, a Silver Medal will be floating in the air over the water, so now you must fly and grab it. Super Speed Section: 6. Start off the Super Speed Section by heading to the far left to find a semi-hidden ramp under an arched rock formation, the Silver Medal is in the area this ramp leads to on the main path, use Light Dash on the nearby Rings to help line yourself up. 7. In the forested area on the left side. 8. In the forested area on the far left side just before you leave the forest. 9. Floating above the boardwalk after the forest, jump to get it. 10. Don't go on the ramp the robots are guarding or the ramp after, it's under the next bridge to the left. Sonic Act 2: Dusty Desert ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Yikes! Many of the Silver Medals in this stage are hard-to-get and you can't use the Purple Gem to cheat, good luck! 1. Turn to your right as soon as the stage starts and you will see a Silver Medal behind you. 2. Go the normal way after the first Boost Ramp instead of the shortcut way on the rising platforms, even though this shortcut takes you more directly to Silver Medals #3-5. As soon as you hit the first checkpoint, turn to your left, there is a Silver Medal in the ribs of the dinosaur bones, use your Aura! 3. This Silver Medal is directly over the second checkpoint, two ways to get to it, this backtracking way is easier. Go past the second checkpoint, then when you get to the enemies guarding the cage, turn completely around and go to your left, using the ledge with the statues on it to jump onto a narrow ledge area. Jump to your left onto the ledge with the spike trap on it, then jump again to the Silver Medal that is now in front of you. The next two Silver Medals are in this same area. 4. If you turn to your right at the first robot guarded cage, you will see two narrow platforms. One has a bunch of enemies on it, the other a Silver Medal. You need to jump in the sand with Aura on and walk to the platform you see with boxes and two winged statues. (the shortcut described in medal 2 takes you directly here). Then Homing Attack the series flyer robots and crabs clinging to the ruin. You must carefully Homing Attack them to make it to the top. Them turn to the left and you will see another narrow platform you need to jump to that has the Silver Medal on it. A little tough, you might have to try a few times. Once you get this medal, don't just jump in the sand and then try to get the three star spring... you won't make it, re-enter the course from the left or jump directly to the platform this spring is on. 5. If you turn to your left at the first robot guarded cage, there is a Silver Medal on a platform with two winged statues, turn on your Aura and walk over there, but you can't jump up there form the front and you will find yourself without an Aura if you keep trying! Go to the back of this platform and there will be a couple of enemies you can use to Homing Attack up there. 6. And now I will tell you not to hit the spring that the robots are guarding! Instead, jump up on two ledges to your left and then turn left and you will see two flyer robots you can Homing Attack. You will end up running on the side of a wall, the Silver Medal is on this wall in the middle, use your Aura to knock crabs out of the way. Kind of tricky, but if you fall off this wall and turn your aura on at the bottom, you can backtrack and get on it again. 7. As soon as you go around the next loop, jump to catch a Rainbow Hoop. Now look to your right for a Silver Medal on that ledge. Don't hit the spring up there, drop down to the lower part of the level instead. 8. Another one that is hard to get! After the next checkpoint and some spiky balls, look for crabs on the side of the wall to the right. You need to Homing Attack up them and an Item Box, then move up platforms that are moving in and out of the wall, more Homing Attacks then more platforms for a Silver Medal. (hint, there is a little ledge you can still stand on the side of the wall if you don't land on the platform) 9. Fall back down from there, and the next Silver Medal is clearly seen over the right side of a hole, jump for it. 10. When crossing the large sand area toward the goal it's to the left between statues. Sonic Act 3: White Acropolis ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Snowboarding Section: 1. Don't jump off the first ramp into the shortcut area, go the normal way and after the curve, it's to the right. 2. Not after the second ramp, on a raised section in the middle of the track. It's best to actually jump from ground level since a small ramp near enemies is hard to jump off, be persistent and remember you can snowboard up the hill too if you miss it! 3. Shortly after Silver Medal number 3, after going around a curve that has a rail buried in snow and a chasm off to the left, start hugging the left wall to find a small hidden, twisted, descending path. You can either try to follow this path to the left, or at the very beginning of this path fall off the right to land on top of the Silver Medal. 4. After the checkpoint, to the far left side of the snowball field. 5. During the snowball chase, to the left side on a small ramp. Since you can't see it before you hit it, it's best to see it first, then try to line yourself up the next time you get to that part. Second Sonic Section: 6. It's in a box to the right of the first laser gate. Tails' Section: 7. Next to the third searchlight in the ice wall, throw a bomb at the wall to open it. Last Sonic Section: 8. Just after getting past the first laser gate, you will see a Silver Medal on top of a high tower ahead. To get it, go the raised platform beside the back wall and kick the rocks to expose a secret spring. 9. After medal 8, make the next left turn instead of going straight. Then kick the first pile of rocks you get too. 10. More than one way to get here, but here's the fastest. After getting medal 9, keep heading in the same direction, then turn to the right. There is a large chasm with a ramp off to the left. Jump over this chasm and land on the ramp, you can make it, then go up this ramp to find the medal. Sonic Act 4: Crisis City ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Boarding Section: 1. You need to jump off the second ramp and land on the rail. If you miss it, you can try to jump directly onto the bottom of the rail from ground level. 2. On the very wide section on the side of the building, there are lots of rails above you, but you shouldn't go up there. Instead the Silver Medal is on the side of the second building a little to the left near a worm-type enemy. Second Section: 3. When the rail to your left disappears, you will see another rail straight ahead, jump on this rail and you will find the Silver Medal at the very end of it. 4. After medal 3, run on the side of the building and then hit the speed boost/springs you naturally come to, don't fall off! 5. On the beginning of the next rail after medal 4. 6. Soon after the next checkpoint, when you get off the sharply curving rail kick the box open you see to the left for a hidden spring. This will take you to higher rails and a spring to the Silver Medal. Whirlwind Section: 7. After destroying a few enemies and hitting the first spring, look to your left for a floating beam. Walk on it and you will see a Silver Medal floating between this beam and another one. To get it without dying, stand on the very edge of the second beam and when the beam dips low enough you will get the Medal. 8. When at the checkpoint, look carefully ahead and you will see a Silver Medal floating above a chunk of building. When you get closer, the camera annoyingly will not focus on it well. It's above the platform with the Ring Item Box on it. To get it, you might need the Bounce Bracelet or the Purple Gem... does anyone know how to get it without upgrades? Super Speed Section: 9. When jumping over the first set of pipes, it's between the second and third pipe in the center pile of boxes, you better hope a piece of car debris breaks the box before you get there! 10. Near the end on the right side of the course floating in the air. You can use a nearby path of Rings to line yourself up a bit, then jump to try to get it. Sonic Act 5: Flame Core ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ First Sonic Section: 1. After killing the first enemy, hit the center boost pad. If you stay lined up, you will get it when Sonic comments about the view. 2. The first time you run on the side of the wall, don't fall into the lava. When you get to the other side, you need to Homing Attack the three flying enemies, then a fourth one will appear. When you get that one, start tapping X to catch a trail of Rings that suddenly appears to make it to the Rainbow Hoop, which will eventually lead to the Silver Medal. 3. When you get to the first major battle area to open the door, there is a Silver Medal hidden behind the rock pillar to your right. 4. When you get to the hint ring that says "Use the footing that comes floating along with the lava flow" turn around and you will see a Silver Medal floating in the air behind you, slightly below the level you are at. 5. Floating in the air above the lava flow. You need to use Bounce Attack on the still platform next to it to get high enough to grab it. 6. Soon after Sonic says "Cool, it's raining fire!" you will drop down to a room below and fall on a collapsing bridge. Light Dash the trail of rings before the bridge collapses, but instead of hitting the next spring turn to your right and you will see a Silver Medal floating above a couple enemies and a caged spring. Inside the Volcano: 7. Use Monsters to Homing Attack to a purple spiral rail in the first room in the volcano. When going around this rail, you will see flying monsters next to it an a Silver Medal. 8. In the first "dark room", when you get to the higher section, look to the left and you will see a door, break the box in front of this door. Knuckles' Section: 9. About in the middle of the room, there is a single lizard-type enemy on a platform. Kill it and a Silver Medal will appear. Last Sonic Section: 10. In the tube just before the goal, you need to kill all four lizard-type enemies clinging to the walls to make a Silver Medal appear on the ground below. This is hard because of the fire and you can't get the enemies if you start to fall straight down. What you need to do is use Yellow Gem so Thunderguard will protect you from the fire, and make sure to run down the side of the tube and don't jump off till the enemies appear and you are ready to use Homing Attack. Sonic Act 6: Radical Train ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Train Chase: 1. In the box next to the hint about using Bound Attack to get to a conveyor. 2. Shortly before you get to the second switch, when Sonic says "I better hurry!" there is one in the boxes on the platform the gray robots are on. 3. Instead of hitting the boost pad in front of the second checkpoint, jump over it and break the boxes to the right of the checkpoint. 4. After grabbing 3 and then jumping off all the walls, you will hit a speed booster, but you want to go back and break a fire box to the left of this booster to reveal a hidden spring. This will lead to two conveyor belts, the Silver Medal is on the second one. 5. On the train tracks, hit the spring near the end on the left side. A Silver Medal can be seen on the left side of the platform you land on. Super Speed Section: 6. The right side of the course near the beginning. 7. Soon after 6, you wanna start tapping X so you can catch a line of floating Rings, the Silver Medal is at the front of this line, you might not get it first try. 8. After jumping over the trains, hit the left most speed booster ramp. 9. About in the middle of the course when chasing after the train. 10. Just before the goal, hit the left most speed booster ramp. Sonic Act 7: Tropical Jungle ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Sorry about how I described the second section... but seriously, the Silver Medals there are not easy to get one after another... First Section: 1. After bouncing through the hollow tree, it's floating in the air above the first group of enemies. 2. First flower bud jump, don't jump up high, instead jump off and land on the low platform, the Silver Medal is among the boxes. 3. After the cave on the rail look to the left, try to jump for it. 4. Get on the rail under medal 3. On the second flowerbud you are on after that, instead of springing off it high, jump off it prematurely to Homing Attack enemies to your left so you can hit a spring. Now you will be swinging on a flower bud with the Silver Medal clearly visible in front of you, carefully spring off this one so you can grab it. Second Section: 5. First walking on water with aura section, to the far left between trees. 6. More than one way and the next few medals you will have to backtrack a little. Next water section, instead of hitting the speed booster walk on the water to the left. Hit two flying enemies and an item box to land on the first platform. There is a Silver Medal on a higher platform to your right, carefully avoid the spike trap and use the platforms to reach it. Another way to get to it is going to the first turtle and using Homing Attack on the rail by it, then jumping off at the circle of rings and the 1up, then going to the area below where the robot is and now it is to your right. 7. Keep going up on the series of platforms and you will find a three star spring. Also get to this spring by jumping on to the high boardwalk with the lotus below Silver Medal 8. Anyway, once you hit this spring no matter how you get there Homing Attack two robots, then Homing Attack again and you will catch a rail with the Silver Medal on it. When you land, look under the boardwalk to your left for Medal 9. 8. Below the platforms where you got 6, use the Aura on the water and to the left and Sonic will say "Oh, is there a back road?" Go that direction and get on the next flower bud, the Silver Medal is on a platform to the left of it, jump off the flower bud carefully to grab it or using the lotus that is in the water below, then jumping to it from the boardwalk. 9. After grabbing 8 drop back down to the water below and walk past the lotus. When you walk on the water again, look under the boardwalk to your left. Or you will see it soon after grabbing 7. 10. After that backtracking set of Silver Medals... go back to the lotus under medal 8, then continue on that boardwalk, going the highest route after that. You will eventually spring off a flower bud, go through a Rainbow Hoop, grab the medal, then hit the Goal. Sonic Act 8: Kingdom Valley ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ First Sonic Section: 1. At the beginning, go the normal path, not the one from the collapsing bridge. When you get to the second Eagle, instead of taking it (take it if you are heading to 2), look ahead and you will see three platforms, one of them with a 1up on it, get that 1up and hit the spring next to it. After the next checkpoint you are running on the side of the wall, it's on this wall below the path of Rings. 2.
