Death Chamber is the 12th stage in the Hero story of Sonic Adventure 2 and the fourth stage playable with Knuckles. It represents Knuckles' role in, and the conclusion of, the heroes' trilogy of consecutive stages at Eggman's secret base. This is the only stage where Knuckles is looking for something (Gate Keys) that aren't Master Emerald shards.
Sonic, "Tails," Knuckles and Amy Rose are heading towards the centre of the base when they arrive at a locked door. Sonic asks Knuckles to go find the keys, playfully calling him the world’s greatest treasure hunter.
Death Chamber is a an Egyptian indoors ruin themed level, with large murals and hieroglyphs. Since it's Eggman's base, his head appears in giant animal and human statues instead of theirs and his face emblazes the Gate Knuckles is trying to find the Keys for as well.
The major gimmicks of this level are hourglass doors similar to those from Sonic & Knuckles' Sandopolis Zone. Another major gimmick of the level are cockroach tapestries on the walls, that will always lead to another location, if dug into it's centre.
Other level specific objects include colour coded sarcophagus and golden and Egyptian themed urns.
Death Chamber is composed by a large central core of some sorts and from all the other sections branch out in a cross like shape. The central section, labeled E-01 is a large cylindrical room, with two major height divisions, a lower route and an upper route, where some pillars are scattered. If the red section is the south one, the blue is the east, the green is the west and finally there’s a north underwater section as well.
