** You can play this game for over twenty years and still find new (non-glitch) content within the levels. Check the playthroughs of WebVideo/BrainScratchCommentaries, LetsPlay/HellfireCommentaries, or Super Gaming Bros (WebVideo/{{Somecallmejohnny}})
* The boss fight against Knuckles at Hidden Palace Zone. Its really easy, but what makes it so awesome is that you ''finally'' get revenge for everything he's put you through since you first saw him at the beginning of the game.

*** The fact that after reaching the end of Death Egg Zone Act 2 you have to fight a total of SIX boss battles (counting all the phases of the DEZ and TDZ bosses) is a testament how prepared, determined and serious Eggman is in this game.
*** That he recovered, repaired and launched the Death Egg ''twice'' in the span of just one game is a feat of awesome all its own.
*** What also makes this a CMOA for Eggman is unlike most of his plots which are foiled by Sonic at the end of other games, the whole Death Egg saga takes from ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'' all the way to the ''Sonic & Knuckles'' portion of this game for Sonic to stop it completely. It took two games (or three if you consider the two portions of this title their own games) to completely foil this one plot, which proves how much a {{determinator}} Eggman can be. That, and he also managed to create Big Arm, a powerful mecha capable of knocking the rings out of ''Super Sonic'' if it got a hold of him. [[spoiler:Too bad he did not account for something stronger than Super Sonic. Hyper Sonic, for example.]]

** Playing as Knuckles feels like a CMOA for him in a way, since his abilities allow him explore whole new areas that Sonic and Tails couldn't access, and he battles and takes out tougher bosses, including Mecha Sonic in his Super form, making it feel like the character you're controlling is a whole level above Sonic and Tails.
* Sonic's determination to defeat Eggman and stop the Death Egg once and for all (especially awesome in the Japanese S&K backstory, where we see him vowing that he won't rest until this one is destroyed). And the fact that he succeeded in the end despite everything Eggman and Knuckles threw at him over the course of the game, which included ''dropping him into a volcano and shooting the Death Egg's huge [[DeathRay death beams]] at it''.

* '''Hyper Sonic''', a fantastic reward for players who manage to collect every Chaos Emerald across both games. All the perks of Super Sonic (faster speed and invincibility), the Thunder Shield's double jump, the Fire Shield's dash, the Water Shield's bounce attack minus the bounce as well as the ability to breathe underwater...really, the only downside (aside from [[EpilepticFlashingLights the obvious]] is that the Thunder Shield's ring magnetism is absent, and even that can be arranged by just finding the shield yourself in this state!

Added DiffLines:

* '''Hyper Knuckles''', basically Hyper Sonic but every time he glides into a wall at a great enough speed, he ''causes an earthquake that destroys all enemies onscreen''.

* '''Super Tails''', especially when you unleash the Flickies. Just the mere fact he ''gains'' a super form after collecting all the emeralds accounts for this, and it turns out to be even more powerful than either Sonic and Knuckles hyper forms put together.
