Back to: Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles/Comparisons.

The layouts of Sonic 3's Special Stages remained untouched; all differences listed here are palette changes.

The Chaos Emerald obtained in the second Special Stage was recoloured to orange, likely due to its corresponding Super Emerald also being orange.

The sixth Special Stage's Emerald was changed to a slightly different shade of red. The difference is barely noticeable, but it's there.
