Story from US and EU manuals

File:Sonic2 GG US manual.pdf Robotnik returns!

All was peaceful and quiet on South Island after Sonic the Hedgehog crushed the plans of the diabolical Dr. Ivo Robotnik for the first time. Far too quiet, in fact, for a hyper young hedgehog who craves action. So Sonic left South Island in search of other adventures.

When he returned, Sonic found no sign of his friends anywhere. Confused, he went back to his digs to think, and found a note waiting for him. It was from Miles (or "Tails" as he is called), a two-tailed fox who is one of Sonic's closest friends:

Dear Sonic:

"Robotnik is back, and he's captured all of the animals on the island! He is hiding me in a place called the Crystal Egg. In order to free me, you have to find and bring the six Chaos Emeralds.

"Robotnik made me write this. He says he's waiting for you, and he's created six really nasty robots in order to 'get rid of you once and for all.' I don't know what he has planned, but Sonic, please be careful!

Sincerely, Tails"

There was no time to waste! The letter fluttered to the floor as Sonic dashed off to find the Chaos Emeralds and save his friends.

After Sonic's success in restoring peace to South Island, the evil clutches of Dr. Eggman, who is once again plotting to take over the world, are closing in.
When Sonic returned from his usual whimsical adventures, he received a letter from his little buddy Miles...

Dear Sonic,

All of our friends on South Island have been kidnapped by Dr. Eggman.
I'm being held captive in a place called Crystal Egg and I'm being forced to write this letter. But apparently you can only come here if you have the six Chaos Emeralds, which are somewhere on South Island.
Dr. Eggman has built six horrible robots that are awaiting your arrival, so be careful, Sonic...

From Miles

What will be the fate of Miles and his island friends?
Where are the six Chaos Emeralds?
As soon as he finished reading the letter, Sonic was off and running...

Miles Tails Prower

  • Real name: Miles Prower
  • Nickname: Tails

A boy who adores Sonic. His two tails are a sign of his vitality.
