The Pipe (パイプ Paipu?) is a gimmick that appears in Sonic Adventure 2 and its remake Sonic Adventure 2: Battle. It is a small tube that hides Animals inside it.


The Pipe is a small white and bent tube with a thick mouth which are protruding from the unlikeliest of surfaces. It is apparently a preferred dwelling place for small Animals.


The Pipes can be found in every Stage in the game. Their purpose is to provide more Animals which they contain within them, though they may also contain bombs. To use the Pipe in gameplay, the player has to press DreamcastB near them, which will make the playable character whistle into it. This will coax the Animal out for the player to collect.
