Scrambled Egg Zone is the sixth zone in the 8-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. The stage's primary difficulty comes in the form of the dozens of assorted transport tubes in the stage, which are maze-like in execution. The boss of this level is none other than Mecha Sonic (referred to in the US manual as Silver Sonic).

The Chaos Emerald for this zone is not hidden away in some secret location. Instead, it is in Mecha Sonic's possession, but only if the player has found the other five gems in the previous zones.


Shoot through twisting, turning pipes that lead to traps or treasures. Use the D-Button to make turns of the junctions.

It is in this Zone that you come face to face with Robotnik's baddest creation, the (Mecha Sonic)! It has the Super Spin Attack and a bunch of dirty tricks to do to our hero. But does it have what it takes?

Note: If you have collected five Chaos Emeralds and manage to defeat the Mecha Sonic, it will relinquish the sixth Emerald to you. If you have less than five Emeralds, you will receive no further Chaos Emeralds for the rest of the game.


  • Bomb — Mindless kamikaze bomb bots that walk back and forth along a short plane, either on the ground or ceiling. As soon as Sonic approaches, they stop moving and start flashing: after a few seconds, they explode into a small shower of flashing projectiles. Look out when they attack in groups.
  • Game-game — Frisbee-like turtle-resembling robot.
  • Taraban — Crab bots that move back and forth in a small area. Every once in a bit they pause to fire flashing projectiles in either direction.
