Many seem to believe that the Game Gear and Master System versions of Sonic 1, 2, and Chaos are identical. However, this is not the case, as each one has several differences from each other, including, but not limited to, palette swaps (Sonic Chaos), altered bosses (Sonic 1), and altered music (Sonic 2, Sonic Chaos). (For example, the end credits theme from Sonic 2 on the Game Gear is extended over the Master System version)
