Next stage >>

Sky Rail is the eleventh stage in the Dark Story of Sonic Adventure 2 and is played by Shadow the Hedgehog.

Overview

Shadow must chase and find Tails' Tornado before it gets too far. There are many rails to grind on in this stage. In this level, the Bounce Spinner causes the Spinner to fly upwards when the Homing Attack is used. There is a big location in this zone which is rather difficult to see. and there is also ٌRhino Metals and GUN Hawks scattered in the stage. The music for this stage is called "Mr. Unsmiley".

Missions

Collect 100 Rings

To quickly complete this mission, head straight down the main path (pop the Item Box accessible via the first Propeller Spring along the way). Proceed forward until Shadow gets to a ledge with two adjacent Grind Rails and a Point Marker. Grind down these rails to reach a cliff with another pair of rails on the top. Proceed down the incoming extensive rail section which leads to a single Spring stuck to a mountain. Here, instead of using the Spring, jump around the mountain by jumping down to the ledge below the Spring, where the second Chao Container is located. The player may have to perform a Homing Attack during the descent to reach this ledge. Here, there are two Super Rings containing a total of thirty Rings. Get back up the mountain, and take the right rail after crossing the second Point Marker.

At the end of the rail, jump and perform another Homing Attack to reach the Super Ring on the left in midair. The player can also collect the Super Ring on the ground and then proceed forward for more.

Find the Lost Chao

Play the Mystic Melody at the Ancient Ruin to the left of the second Point Marker, and a path of Rings will appear. Light Speed Dash across them, and use from there a series of Propeller Springs to reach the top of the hill where the lost Chao is.

Reach the Goal within 2:00

If the player crouches when grinding down the rails and ignore any enemies that are not on the path, completing this stage in less than two minutes should be easy.

Clear Hard Mode

This mission places spiked balls on many of the rails. To get by them, use the Grind Step.

Big the Cat sighting

Big the Cat's head in Sky Rail.

As soon as the player begins this stage, they will be grinding down a rail. When the player looks to the right side of the mountain, they should see some sort of steel device with a wheel at the end emerging from the mountain. Big's head can be seen where the device and the mountain come together.

Animals

Chao Container locations

  • Instead of taking the first rocket, hit the Mono Beetle on the left to reach the platform where the first Chao Container is.
  • As the player reaches the Spring at the end of the second extensive Grind Rail section, perform a Homing Attack while pressing up and left on the control stick. The player should then land on a ledge below the Spring where the second Chao Container is.
  • When the player gets to the first Propeller Spring, bounce to its peak and dive into a small alcove on the right using the Homing Attack. There, the final Chao Container can be found.

Level Up Item

Shadow's Ancient Light Level Up Item is located here as an optional Level Up Item. This allows him to use the Light Speed Attack. Not far from the start of the stage, one can see a container for the Chao key. If one walks off the left edge of the platform, Mono Beetles will appear to use the Homing Attack to reach a spring; the Ancient Light is found on the platform directly overhead.

SU 62 Sky Rail Zone

Knuckles at the Sky Rail Zone.

The Sky Rail Zone had appeared in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-off comics published by Archie Comics, specifically the "After-The-Credits" scene from Sonic Universe #62. Sky Rail Zone retains the same appearance as its video game counterpart. Sky Rail Zone appears exclusively in the Post-Super Genesis Wave World.

In Sonic Universe #62, Knuckles the Echidna was searching for an ancient spirit nearby, when suddenly he was alarmed by an upcoming "shooting star," which was actually the escape pod of Eclipse the Darkling and Death's Eye (controlled by a deceased-Black Death), that was about to crash-land on Angel Island. This worried Knuckles, as he had enough problems to deal with thanks to the Shattered World Crisis.

Trivia

  • The beginning of the stage in the Dreamcast version is different in the GameCube remake. Noticeably, the platform underneath the rails with the 1-Up is missing.
  • The Propeller Spring reappear in Sonic Generations in a mission at Sky Sanctuary.
  • In an early trailer of the game (shown at E3 2000), Sonic is shown in this level instead of Shadow.
  • Sky Rail is likely either an inspiration for, or a prototype of, Rail Canyon.
  • If a treasure hunter character is used in this stage via glitches or cheats, they can obtain items here by digging, unlike in other non-hunter stages.
