Tropical Jungle is an Action Stage in Sonic the Hedgehog. This level is located in the Forest, the same hub that contains Kingdom Valley.



After rescuing Princess Elise and destroying the Egg Genesis, Sonic The Hedgehog dashes off into the Tropical Jungle to put some distance between him and Dr. Eggman. However, no corner of Soleanna is truly free of the doctor’s influence, as even this lush paradise is overrun with robots. The menacing mechs are not Sonic’s only problem in the wilderness, though. He must carefully negotiate the dizzying heights of the dense jungle canopy where a misstep can be disastrous. Before paradise is truly lost, Sonic must carry Elise to safety on the other side of the jungle.

Sonic the Hedgehog travels through the Tropical Jungle along with Elise in order to escape Doctor Eggman's robots. This stage has two acts, while Sonic carries Elise throughout this stage. The stage begins with Sonic running through the inside of a tree trunk and bouncing off of springs. Sonic will occasionally grab onto vines with purple flowers on the end to swing to a higher elevation. There are also occasions where Sonic runs across giant turtles.


Rouge the Bat takes over for Shadow the Hedgehog when it comes time to visit the Tropical Jungle, a paradise of ancient ruins and lush jungle landscapes. Graceful sea turtles swim through the waters beneath the ruins, granting passage to heroes unable to swim the waters on their own.

Shadow the Hedgehog never plays through this level in his story. Instead, the player flies through as Rouge the Bat searching for Omega. It is a relatively short stage. You never really have to use the vines to swing onto a higher platform due to Rouge's ability to climb walls and glide. This stage is simply a maze of platforms.


Silver The Hedgehog lands in the Tropical Jungle, seeking further evidence of the so-called Iblis Trigger. The lush paradise starkly contrasts Silver’s infernal future, but the psychic hedgehog has no time for sightseeing. He must weave through the maze of ruins, ride on the backs of giant turtles, and defeat a legion of robots to reach the exit and get closer to his quarry. Silver’s abilities to levitate and walk up walls help him navigate the labyrinthine ruins, but seeking high ground isn’t always the solution in the jungle. Sometimes he’ll have to get right in the thick of it, trading blows with ‘bots while seeking out the pathway back to town.

Tropical Jungle is Silver the Hedgehog's first zone after traveling to the past, in which he attempts to escape the Jungle Ruins and find the Iblis Trigger. Silver's version of Tropical Jungle is more involved than the other two. Not only does he swing on vines and run along platforms, but occasionally he'll have to actually ride on the giant turtles to get to a new area. Other times, Silver will be expected to fling giant logs through wooden blockades in order to proceed.


Knuckles the Echidna goes through the ruins here in the End of the World to find the light blue Emerald.

Shadow's Story

Rouge comes back from the future with Shadow's Chaos Emerald. She's now worried about him, as he no longer has a means of returning to the past. She then gets a contact from G.U.N. asking her if she had recovered the Scepter of Darkness (the game screws up and says "book" of darkness). Rouge says she needs to get into contact with E-123 Omega. Once his location is pin-pointed, she goes off into the forest to find him. When she finds him the situation is told to him and Omega heads off to complete his new mission.

Silver's Story

Silver, after defeating Iblis, is told by Mephiles the Dark that in order to save his future, he must head into the past and find the Iblis Trigger. Silver gets a vision from a Chaos Emerald that shows him the Iblis Trigger is none other than Sonic the Hedgehog. Mephiles then takes it upon himself to send them into the past. Silver is thrown into the past where the forest is located. He looks around and realizes that he's been separated from Blaze and Mephiles. That's when he notices his surroundings and is transfixed by its beauty. With that,he heads off into the forest to complete his mission and find the Iblis Trigger.
