Added DiffLines:

* CoversAlwaysLie: The Game Gear and Master System box art in the west depict Sonic and Tails adventuring together. In truth, Tails is kidnapped in the opening scene of this version, and only appears at the end of the final stage if you have all of the Chaos Emeralds.

* StoryDrivenInvincibility: After beating Mecha Sonic, Robotnik will flee from his control room into the cockpit of the final boss. Despite being the fastest thing alive, Sonic cannot catch up to him; he will magically speed up if you are too close, even if you spin dash at him or even use debug mode to try and fly ahead of him.

This game is notable for introducing Sonic's [[TagalongKid buddy]] Tails, Super Sonic (the eponymous character's Emerald-powered super form), and the Spin Dash technique all have become series staples. It is the second best selling UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis game of all time, selling over six million copies, only outsold by its predecessor's 20,000,000 mark.[[note]]However, most of ''Sonic 1''[='=]s sales came from being a pack-in to the Genesis, with 4 million selling standalone, so ''Sonic 2'' is also the bestselling ''standalone'' Genesis game of all time.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* BossOnlyLevel: The final zone, the Death Egg, only has one act and two bosses in it, and just like the original game, no rings are in this level, necessitating a FlawlessVictory.

* BrightIsNotGood / CrapSaccharineWorld: Crystal Egg Zone, the true final zone of the game, is oddly bright colored and cheerful, with happy music. It is also the inner sanctum of Robotnik, and [[EasyLevelsHardBosses while the zone is fairly easy the boss isn't.]]

Added DiffLines:

* UnderTheSea: Aqua Lake Zone plays with this; like the Aquatic Ruins in the Genesis version, it's possible to stay out of the water entirely, but unlike the Genesis version, this can only happen in Act 3, and only if one knows how to skip Sonic across the water. The goat post for Act 1 is in an underwater corridor and almost all of Act 2 forces Sonic through an underwater maze.

In 2015, a port arrived on the UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS, developed by M2, finishing off their ''3D Classics'' series on the handheld. In addition to 3D enhanced visuals, the game also comes with the ability to play either the International or Japanese versions, the option to enable a screen filter emulating the look of a CRT television, the option to immediately access the stage select, the ability to record replays, a save state feature, and finally, a new "Ringkeeper" Mode, which eases less experienced players in by starting each stage or life with 10 rings and only lose half of them each time they get hit.
