[[AllThereInTheManual There are two completely different storylines depending on the instruction manual.]] In western versions: Knuckles the Echidna is the guardian of Carnival Island, a high-tech amusement resort, but [[DubNameChange Dr. Robotnik]] has designs on the island's Emerald Pillar, which houses the Power Emerald that supplies the island's electricity. Robotnik has trapped four of Knuckles' friends in the Combi Confiner, so it's up to Knuckles to save the day before the grand opening, reuniting the Chaotix Crew with the real ring power of teamwork. In the Japanese version: [[DubNameChange Dr. Eggman]] discovers a mysterious island containing artifacts known as Chaos Rings - magic rings infused with Chaos Emerald energy - and built his base (dubbed the Newtrogic High Zone) there. Mighty the Armadillo, Espio the Chameleon, Charmy Bee, and Vector the Crocodile, all arrived at around the same time for their own reasons, but were captured by Eggman and placed in his "Combi Catcher" machine to avoid interfering with his plans. Knuckles, curious about the island, ventures there as well to find out more about the Chaos Rings and their connection to the Floating Island.

Added DiffLines:

* ScoringPoints: While the game doesn't provide a high score table, it has incentives towards score runs. Collecting rings while already having 255 awards the player with bonus points, as does beating the wireframe versions of the special stages after earning all the Chaos Rings.

* CanonDiscontinuity: Suggested to be the case since WordOfGod [[http://info.sonicretro.org/Takashi_Iizuka_interview_by_EGM_(February_3,_2004) says that the Chaotix were re-imagined for]] ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'', not re-appearing. Also referenced in VideoGame/SonicGenerations, which has Mighty's last appearance at 1993. Which is strange when you realize that two of this game's songs are in that game. Certain profiles still acknowledge the existence of ''Knuckles' Chaotix'', however.

** NoEnding / {{A Winner Is You}}: [[spoiler:The good ending is just the title screen with Sonic and Tails in the background. Even the bad ending is better.]]

* GreenHillZone: The Isolated Island stages which are played through before reaching the Newtrogic High Zone for the first time. Oddly for a Sonic game they are devoid of enemies.

** If your partner gets hit by an enemy and you have rings, he'll only lose one ring so that you don't unfairly lose all of your rings.

** If your partner gets hit by an enemy and you have rings, he'll only lose one ring so that you don't unfairly lose all of your rings. Your partner also doubles as an extra hit point, since getting hit will just cause you to lose him for a few seconds and then return.



* BulletproofHumanShield: Partners can be used for this purpose, as they only lose one ring when hit instead of all of them (unless your partner is Bomb, who explodes when hit, causing you to lose all of your rings if you're within its blast radius).

* JokeCharacter: Heavy the Robot and Bomb. Heavy is extremely slow and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin heavy]], and Bomb will blow up on the player if he takes a hit.

* PunBasedTitle: The second part of the title is meant to be a play on the word "Chaotics", hence why it's possessively called Knuckles' Chaotix--it's referring to the frantic escapades of Knuckles and the gang, not the Chaotix as a team like they became years later.

The X is also a play on the fact that its released on the 32X.
