Emerald Coast (エメラルドコースト Emerarudo Kōsuto?) is the first Action Stage of Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut. It is playable by E-102 Gamma, Sonic the Hedgehog and Big the Cat.

Sonic

In his first stage of the game, Sonic races across the picturesque beaches of Emerald Coast, searching for Tails, who has crashed his prototype plane somewhere in the area. Despite the expected serenity of the gorgeous beaches, it is populated by a number of Eggman's destructive Badniks, as well as an Orca, which will hurt the player if he/she touches it. The presence of hostile robots seems to have forced beach-goers to temporarily evacuate the coast, leaving Sonic on his own impromptu race course to dash through.

Big

Big the Cat has entered this gorgeous locale to once again fish for Froggy. Due to the stage being located literally right next to a vast expanse of ocean, Big has many other fish to distract himself with catching. If Big is equipped with the Life Belt, he may just discover a secret area under a rock, with even more fish for him to catch. The part of Emerald Coast that Big fishes in is located in Sonic's "Azure Blue World" section of the stage, right after the iconic whale chase. In the end, he finds Froggy, only for Froggy to be immediately abducted by E-102 Gamma. This is his third stage.

E-102 Gamma

E-102 Gamma has entered Emerald Coast to find and capture Froggy for his master, Dr. Eggman. Though he only travels through a small section of the first part of the stage with small modifications to some wood platforms, there is a surprisingly large number of Badniks for Gamma to use as target practice while he searches.

Trivia

  • The music in this stage bears some resemblance to the music in Spring Stadium Zone from Sonic 3D Blast (Sega Genesis) and could be a remix of it.
  • In Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic's version of Wave Ocean, a level very similar to Emerald Coast, has a segment in which the player deals with an Orca that smashes through a bridge, similar to the Orca that chases Sonic in Emerald Coast.
  • There's a real life beach that also has the name of "Emerald Coast" in Destin, Florida. With its hotels lining the coast it bears a striking resemblance to the one seen in Sonic Adventure.
  • Tails, Knuckles and Amy can all be playable in Emerald Coast Act 1 using glitches and exploits in the adventure field. However, without modifications, none of these characters will be playable once the player reaches Act 2. The ability to access the stage with Tails was removed in the Xbox Live and PSN re-release, but Knuckles and Amy can still get in.
  • Emerald Coast is also the first stage playable in Sonic Shuffle.
  • Big has special music that plays in his level that isn't heard in Gamma's or Sonic's level.
  • Sonic was first chased by the Orca. Since then, Sonic has been chased by many objects in some of the main 3D Sonic games.
  • Big loses Froggy to Gamma from his side of the story, but when playing Gamma's story, Big is nowhere to be seen.
  • The song "Windy and Ripply" appears as one of the songs that can be played in events in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games and Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. The song is also selectable for Seaside Hill in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing.

  • There's a song called "READY!" made by Crush 40 guitarist Jun Senoue and Junko Noda that sounds very similar to "Azure Blue World".
  • Emerald Coast appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack for LEGO Dimensions. In the level, Sonic is transported there after a "keystone device" found by Dr. Eggman malfunctions and separates Sonic from his friends.
  • The music for Emerald Coast can be played in events in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games and Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
  • According to Takashi Iizuka, Emerald Coast is the hottest vacation destination in Sonic's world.[1]
  • If the player noclips outside the boundaries of Big's Emerald Coast stage, they will find rendered and unrendered areas of Sonic and E-102's portion of the stage. These include the hotel beach, the boardwalks and the sandbar where E-102 finds Froggy. However Act 2 cannot be accessed from Big's version because the trigger point is not there.
  • The first six seconds of the music that plays in the second section of Emerald Coast resemble the boss theme from Sonic 3D Blast.
