Egg Quarters is the fifth stage in the Dark story of Sonic Adventure 2 and the second stage playable with Rouge the Bat. It represents Rouge's attempt to find the Gate Keys and use them to break into Dr. Eggman's secret base (coming, as it does, at a point in the story where the other Dark side characters don't know who Rouge is).
After collecting some of the Master Emerald shards, Rouge heads to Eggman's stronghold and infiltrates it. Halfway in, she contacts an unknown party and reports about the base. Rouge also states that she preferred to be hunting for more Master Emerald shards, but since it's business before pleasure, she sets off to search for the Gate Keys and infiltrate the base deeper.
Egg Quarters is an Egyptian indoors ruin themed level, with large murals and hieroglyphs. Since it's Eggman's base, his head appears in the three giant animal statues instead of theirs and his face emblazes the Gate Rouge is trying to find the Keys for.
The major gimmick of the level are two large, invulnerable beetle robots that patrol around the stage. If one gets close enough to the player, it will let off a series of five warning beeps, after which time Rouge will take damage unless she either gets a significant distance away from the robot, or hides in a shadowy area, before time runs out. Another major gimmick of the level are scorpion tapestries on the walls, that may or not lead to new locations, if dug into it's centre.
Other level specific objects include colour coded sarcophagus and golden and Egyptian themed boxes.
Egg Quarters has four major sections and has a triangular shape.
Egg Quarters is analogous to Knuckles' Death Chamber, both in theme, colour coded rooms and hallways, along with diggable paintings that lead to different sections, but is triangular shaped, considerably smaller and less complicated.

At the Snake Altar room, climb up to the top of one of the six high pillars. Big can be seen above the level to the right and close to a flower, if the green hallway is at the north. Interestingly, in Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, two rings take the place of where Big once was, as all of Big's stage cameos are removed in the remake. These rings cannot be obtained.

Find the secret in the Egg Snake Chamber.
The Gold Beetle can be found behind the golden box located inside the left square room of Egg Snake chamber.
In the Snake Altar room, there's a Mystic Melody at the centre of the six high pillars. The warp leads to another room, where the Chao is under the crusher that almost immediately falls upon it. If you're not faster than the crusher, than the Chao will be impossible to reach, and you need to find a way around it. On the left wall there's a scorpion painting, so dig through it to access another room identical to the last but filled with Kikis (there's a bomb item box in the northeast steel container). Below the steel container directly south of the northwest one is a switch that deactivates the crusher of the other room. Dig through the painting on the middle of the room to return to the previous room and it will be possible to reach the Chao.
Rouge's Pick Nails upgrade can be found here. It's in the room beyond the cages at the Egg Fish Chamber.
