Babylon Guardian is the seventh Babylon story racecourse in Sonic Riders.


The last (and only) boss fight in Sonic Riders, the Babylon Guardian course sees Team Sonic (plus Amy) and the Babylon Rogues make their way inside Babylon Garden's inner sanctum. Shugo-hei springs out of the darkness, determined to thwart any attempt to recover the city's ancient treasures.

There is no lap limit in this course; to win, Sonic must simply slam into Shugo-hei's bottle three times. Each hit causes the simulation to falter, and with the final strike, the genie's terrifying environment vanishes altogether.


In the strange interior of Babylon Garden, the rules of time and space seem to no longer apply; at one point a dimensionless void, the next a gothic, blood-red hellscape, and then a black-and-white techno-corridor, precisely what this track truly is never gets unequivocally resolved - although some kind of holodeck seems a credible theory. What is certain, however, is that it's inhabited by a very large and very angry ancient Babylonian, who doesn't seem to appreciate interlopers disturbing his slumber.

In Story Mode, there are absolutely no Rings available on this course.
