Created as ''[[KillerApp the]]'' [[KillerApp launch title]] for the UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast, and the highest selling title for the system, ''Sonic Adventure'' is one of the first 3D games in the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series [[note]]Earlier entries such as ''VideoGame/Sonic3DBlast'' and ''SonicJam'' do not count, as the former [[DigitizedSprites was not real time 3-D]] (sans the special stages on the Sega Saturn port), and ''Jam'''s 3D world wasn't a full 3-D game, but a very early test of the ''Sonic Adventure'' engine, and while ''VideoGame/SonicR'' and ''VideoGame/SonicTheFighters'' used real time 3D, they were spinoff titles with different gameplay styles than the main series [[/note]]. It was released in Japan on December 23rd, 1998, receiving releases in North America, Europe and Australia between September and December of 1999.

** In the Xbox360 and PS3 ports, the entire ''DX'' content needs to be bought separately. Funny since the Sonic Adventure used there uses the ''DX'' port's engine. Averted with the {{UsefulNotes/Steam}} release.

# '''Knuckles the Echidna''' -- current Guardian of the Master Emerald. When Chaos is released from the Emerald, it is naturally broken into pieces. Angel Island falls from its place in the sky and into the sea, and Knuckles takes it upon himself to track down the missing pieces and restore the Emerald (and Angel Island) to its former glory. Thus, the goal of each of the echidna's stages is to find three shards, using his SpiderSense to pinpoint their locations. Reappeared in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' for Knuckles and Rouge.
# '''Amy Rose''' -- a pink hedgehog with [[StalkerWithACrush an all-consuming crush on Sonic]]. After she meets a young bird on the run from one of Eggman's robots, Amy resolves to return the bird to its family. In her stages, Amy must outrun [=ZERO=], the robot in pursuit, and get to the giant balloon that will carry her away. [=ZERO=] is actually ''not'' after Amy, but instead the bird, who unbeknownst to her, has a Chaos Emerald in its locket. Amy is not very strong or agile, and carries a mallet for protection.
# '''Big the Cat''' -- a lazy but warm-hearted fisherman. After his pal Froggy swallows a strange looking jewel and runs away from home, Big chases after the frog. The goal of each of his stages is to fish Froggy out of a body of water; there is little danger posed to Big himself. Nevertheless, Big's fishing pole can double as a weapon.
# '''E-102 γ (Gamma)''' -- one of Eggman's most advanced robots, who eventually turns against its creator. Shoots things up to get to the end of the stage before time runs out, which can be increased by [[{{Combos}} combo-killing]] multiple enemies at once. Like Knuckles', this also was re-used for Tails and Eggman's modes in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2''.

* YourSizeMayVary: The [[https://imgur.com/WysLzdI Chaos]] [[https://imgur.com/QmVvZQt Emeralds]] are shown to be much larger where they are too big to fit in your pocket in Angel Island during the past then later in the present time.

* AllForNothing: In the end of Tails's story [[spoiler: Eggman, having lost Chaos and the Egg Carrier, decides to destroy Station Square by blowing it up with a missile. But to his dismay, it fails to explode. He goes to detonate the warhead, but Tails beats him and disables it. Sadly, in the Last Story, Chaos has obtained the seven Chaos Emeralds and transformed into Perfect Chaos causing Station Square to be completely inundated and destroyed anyways.]]

* TakingYouWithMe: After the player delivers the final blow to the Egg Viper at the end of Sonic's story, you'll be notified that "he's up to something". Sure enough, Eggman/Robotnik will do a final attack by plowing through the platform Sonic is standing on to drop him. You will need to have at least two platforms left when you reach this stage to survive and win the fight.

* RashomonStyle: Who won in the character vs. character fights? It depends who you ask. Most of the dialogue was re-recorded for each story even when it doesn't need to be.

Another good Spin Dash jump can bypass the entire final section of Sky Deck where the ship turns sideways. The player can put themselves right at the spring. If you can hit it before the ship flips entirely, you can actually finish the stage without having to monkey-bar around, then flip the ship back to a normal gravity.
