Added DiffLines:

* AWinnerIsYou: Subverted. Regardless of which ending you get, the game still slaps you in the face with the GameOver screen, complete with its losing jingle. Not exactly a great reward for beating the game.

* GreenHillZone: Emerald Hill Zone, essentially an easier variation on the original Green Hill Zone. Emerald Hill's sister the Hill Top Zone shares the same graphics as Emerald Hill, but also combines its setting with DeathMountain and LethalLavaLand.

* CollapsingCeilingBoss: The fight with Eggman at the end of Mystic Cave Zone. The trick is to avoid only the sharp spikes, as the round rocks are completely harmless.


Added DiffLines:

* BullFightBoss: The boss of Gimmick Mountain Zone is a spiked robot warthog that charges at Sonic. He can only be damaged after he charges into the wall and his spikes retract.


Added DiffLines:

* CollapsingCeilingBoss: In the 16-bit version, the boss of Mystic Cave Zone burrows in and out of the ceiling, causing a rain of stone. The rocks are harmless, but the stalactites will hurt you. In the 8-bit versions, the boss of Gimmick Mountain Zone is a spiked robot warthog who causes boulders to rain down when he hits the wall.

** Like the first game, collecting all the Chaos Emeralds only causes minor changes in the ending. You can't even use Super Sonic in the final boss battle, since Death Egg Zone has no rings.

* ZeroEffortBoss: The boss fight at the end of Aqua Lake. The seal is almost completely incapable of harming you, and his only method of attack is inflating an explosive ball to throw at you, which can be very quickly popped before he can even launch it--it can be taken down in mere seconds.



* EvilKnockoff: The Silver Sonic (8-bit) / Robo Sonic (16-bit).[[note]]Both robots were simply known as "Mecha Sonic" in Japanese material, but they are decidedly different and were given differing names in other sources -- "Silver Sonic" comes from the original instruction booklet while "Robo Sonic" comes from the ''Sonic Dimensions'' [[DownloadableContent DLC]] of ''[[VideoGame/LegoDimensions LEGO Dimensions]]'', differentiating it from the robot '''[[NamesTheSame also]]''' called "Mecha Sonic" from ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic & Knuckles]]''.[[/note]]

** The 3DS version has a Ring Keeper mode that makes Sonic start off every level and life with 10 Rings in hand, and only lose half his Rings when he's hit. Not only does this also negate the aforementioned problem of Rings after Special Stages, it also gives you a better fighting chance in certain stages, including the final boss.

* DevelopersForesight: In the 2013 remake, Knuckles' eyes won't peak out of the bushes if you beat the game as him.
