The Sunglasses (サングラス Sangurasu?) are an optional Level Up Item for Knuckles the Echidna in Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle.


The Sunglasses are a pair of special sunglasses with light blue glasses and a silver frame. When obtained, they allow Knuckles to see and interact with invisible items, such as Item Boxes, Rings and Springs. They can be used by selecting them in the action window and then pressing the B button, but will be taken them off whenever Knuckles jumps. They are the equivalent to Rouge the Bat's Treasure Scope.


The Sunglasses is located in Meteor Herd. It is found in the middle of the stage, where Knuckles fights Rouge, near the bottom of the lava pit, but the area where it is found is closed up with metal doors and Knuckles has to find a switch to open it. In order to obtain it, Knuckles must possess the Hammer Gloves.

To find the switch that unlocks the lava pit, head to the opposite side of the structure where Rouge is fought, that you face when you begin the level. Once on the other side, proceed to the nearest platform that has a large meteorite on it and face it so that you have both the meteorite and the large structure directly in front of you. Hit then the meteorite with as much force as possible and it will fly into a door on the structure and destroy it. It will then reveal a iron crater that coveres the switch, which must be smashed to fully reveal the switch.

Once you touch this switch, the door sealing the lava pit will be open. You must then go into the lava pit and the Sunglasses can be found at the lowest platform in the lava pit.
