there..well right after pressing the button run as fast as you can into
the green stuff before it goes away..either run or jump into

farther oyu go the more of Crazy Gadget you can see.

G. Make The GUN Truck fall into a pit

Difficulty: Medium-Hard
Requirements: SA2 or SA2 Demo
Character: Sonic
Level: City Escape

There are two ways to do this We will list them both:

1. Ok Get to the Truck Chase and as soon as it begins try and run up
the hill and the truck will fly through the air and hit an invisable
wall now quickly run up to it and stay close and walk up the hill while
it's backing up stay close and when it gets to the top it will keep
going and fall into a pit!

2. Get to the Truck Chase and when the truck is on the ground homing
attack it and when you are flashing do it again and oyu won't be stay close and walk slowly up the hill..then do what you did
in step 1

The funny part about this is the truck hits Omochao allowing you to be
able to pick him up and carry him through the level and beat it...and if
oyu go to where Big is you can see he's not even running! It looks like
he's dancing!

H. Use Omochao In Boss Fights

Difficulty: Easy
Requirments: SA2
Character: Anybody
Level: Any Boss Fight

This is a cool and funny ok all you have to do is die in a boss
fight and when Omo-Chao comes to give you a tip knock him outta the air
using a Drill Dive,a Bounce,charge up a spin dash so he runs into the
energy when being charged,ect. now when he's on the ground grab him and
use him as a weapon!

I. Dying And Finishing The Level At The Same Time

Difficulty: Easy
Requirments: SA2
Character: Sonic
Level: Crazy Gadget

This is an interesting glitch actually.Ok,what you must do is get
to the last part of Crazy Gadget..Use the Rocket to destroy the green
barrier infront of the Goal Ring..Now go over ot the little "tunnel"
that the Goal Ring is in and use your bounce attack and try to land on
the top..when you do you will here Sonic yell like he was falling but
you can still control him..but if you wait to long it goes black and
puts you back at the checkpoint and takes away one life..but if you hit
the goal ring then it's like you died but still beat the level!

spindash the jump and land on the red area you just came run
upward and you will notice your under the booster that sends you to the
