Somehow finally collecting the six Chaos Emeralds without catching the attention of Sonic, [[BigBad Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik]] was testing his latest weaponry when suddenly an accident scattered them once more. Robotnik was able to find one of them, but of course, Sonic and Tails learned about what happened, and now they're off to find the other five before Robotnik can. Expecting this would happen, Robotnik once again deceives Knuckles the Echidna into believing that Sonic and Tails are trying to steal the Emeralds. Thus, Knuckles becomes a nuisance that tries to inhibit the duo's progress. As all of this is happening, Fang the Sniper, a treasure-hunting weasel, has successfully located the other five during the commotion. Are you up to the challenge of thwarting this [[TitleDrop Triple Trouble]]?

* AWinnerIsYou: Your reward for getting the five Chaos Emeralds (the sixth one is automatically given after defeating Robotnik) is to see the ending credits with Sonic and Tails flying over the ocean, and the game thanking you for playing. The End.

* BossOnlyLevel: In keeping with the Game Gear tradition, the third act of each Zone is a very short or very straight running/platforming segment or just a BossCorridor and then a boss fight; like ''Sonic Chaos'', there are rings available for Sonic. The last level actually has Metal Sonic as a sub-boss between two platforming hallways, with the second hallway leading to Robotnik/Eggman.

* CombatPragmatist: Nack the Weasel is willing to fight dirty to beat Sonic. His first boss fight has him attempting to activate a flame trap (which backfires on him). In his fourth fight, he fires a heat-seeking missile at you (which also backfires on him).

* GreenHillZone: Great Turquoise Zone
* HarmlessVillain: Nack the Weasel. He serves as the boss of the Special Stages, but all of them are ridiculously easy.

In Atomic Destroyer, he reappears again prepared to fight you...[[ScrewThisImOuttaHere and then promptly runs away in terror]] when Eggman approaches.
* HoppingMachine: The first Nack the Weasel contraption that the player actually does have to dismantle; it shouldn't be hard. Also, the first phase of the final boss involves Robotnik in a spring pod of his own.
* InCaseOfBossFightBreakGlass: The first part of the boss fight with Robotnik/Eggman at the end of the game requires you to jump on top of his spring pod enough to chase him out of the room.

* SequentialBoss: As per tradition, the final level of the game has 5 separate boss phases: First Metal Sonic, then after a short platforming segment and a checkpoint, 4 machines piloted by Robotnik/Eggman (a spring pod machine, a flamethrower machine, an electric machine, and then a laser trap room with the boss pod circling through pipes on both sides of the room).

** Happens to Nack in the last two Special Stage boss fights; the first one has him fire a giant missile that flies back and forth and eventually right into him if you last long enough. The last one has Nack in a drilling machine, and one of his drilling attempts gets him stuck in the floor; all Sonic/Tails have to do is pound him into the ground.

** For no clear reason, Nack the Weasel shows up one more time in Atomic Destroyer Act 3 to confront Sonic, but when Robotnik shows up in his latest machine, Nack hightails it out of there. If you didn't collect the five Chaos Emeralds, the ending cutscene shows Nack laughing and escaping, but he trips up and drops the Chaos Emeralds the player didn't collect, prompting the game to tell you to Try Again.
** Like the previous two games, Robotnik/Eggman attempts this after you get past his laser trap in Atomix Destroyer Zone's last Act. Unlike ''Sonic 2'' and ''Sonic Chaos'', he doesn't escape before the player dumps him into a bottomless pit.

* FlunkyBoss: The second phase of the boss in Great Turquoise Zone Act 3 and the entirety of the boss fight in Robotnik Winter Zone Act 3 are this. For the first, after 4 hits, it flies up and turtle spring Badniks will start rolling down both the initial arena and the higher arena. Sonic/Tails needs to use the Badniks to destroy the boss. For the second, it fires exploding penguin robots while it's being fought until the boss is down to the last hit.

* BottomlessPit: As usual, the game has these everywhere except the first Zone. The pits in the final Special Stage will kick you out of the stage if you fall into them, and said stage is a bit of a puzzle.
