Other Glitches 1

Guide created by SonicHackr2000. If you have any questions, please visit the Glitches Forums
This is a list of basic glitches found in Sonic Adventure DX. The
following glitches have been tested, and should work. The ones I
have tried have worked on the American version of the game. I'm
not sure if they will work on the Japanese version, though. This
isn't a complete list, but it does have several fun-to-try glitches.
Happy Glitching!

A. The Plug

Difficulty: Easy-Medium
Requirements: Life Belt
Character: Big
Where Preformed: Hot Shelter

I found out something cool in the Hot Shelter as Big. First,
use the emergency water valve to drain the water. Swim around
near the top of the water and you'll find an opening, go in it.
Swim to the top and go in another opening. There is a hole and a
computer-sign that says "WARNING! There is a plug in the center.
Be careful not to trip over it." You can open it! First, put your
lure near the plug, on the bottom of the floor and reel as if you
were going to get the plug. Then, if your lure gets stuck to the
plug, reel and press left or right on the analog stick. It drains
the water! Then, go out of the plug room and to the emergency
drainage switch area. The water level is higher! Go straight in
the emergency room to find another opening. Bounce up the bumper
to another opening. Go in it. Walk around till you get to a room
with a kiki (the orange monkey), and there is another computer-sign
that says, "WARNING! The Water is covered with glass. FRAGILE!
Please be careful!" Now, there are over 1500-g fish swimming under
that glass. Stand on the side and fling your lure to make the glass
break. (This may take several tries) Now, I know that whole thing
is for something, but what? Could it have been part of the Hot Shelter
before? Is it a glitch? (Note: The is a point marker near the plug.
Also note that there are new fish in this area. Also note that there
are rings, power sneakers and a kiki. So, the programmers must have
put that there before.)

B. The Super Fishing Hole

Difficulty: Easy
Requirements: Life Belt, lure upgrades are optional.
Character: Big
Where Preformed: Emerald Coast

In Emerald Coast as Big (must have Life Belt), look around until
you find a help ball saying, " There is a secret passage somewhere,

completely under water. Look around for an opening at the bottom
and swim through it. When you surface, you will find a fishing paradise. Have
