The Crystal Ring (クリスタルリング Kurisutaruringu?) is an optional Level Up Item in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut. It becomes available after Sonic gets the Light Speed Shoes.


The Crystal Ring is a simple, smooth, cyan bracelet that Sonic wears on his right wrist. It allows Sonic to take half the time to charge the Light Speed Dash and the Light Speed Attack.

Using the Crystal Ring changes also Sonic's aura when charging up his techniques from blue to turquoise.


The Crystal Ring is found behind a door inside the hotel in Station Square and can only be accessed via the Light Speed Dash, which can only be done by obtaining the Light Speed Shoes.

First, Sonic has to climb the stairs on the left side of the hotel entrance. On top of it there are two buttons; one to open a door on the other side of the lobby, but only briefly, and the other creates a trail of rings leading to it. Use the Light Speed Dash immediately on the trail of ring to pass through the door in time and the Crystal Ring can be found behind it.

It is also possible to get the Crystal Ring without Light Speed Shoes by using a Spin Dash Jump, but Sonic cannot use the ring before he has the shoes.


  • Since Sonic Adventure is the only game where the Light Speed Dash requires charging by spin dash (having been switched to a single button-press onwards), this may explain why this one-time Level Up Item has not appeared since.
  • It should be noted that the Crystal ring is similar in appearance and color to the rings that are in Tikal's wrists.
  • In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, a palette swap for Sonic appears that has him wear two Bracelets that look very similar to the Crystal Ring.
