Scrambled Egg Zone is the sixth Zone in the 8-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. As with other Zones in this game, Scrambled Egg consists of two standard Acts followed by a shorter third Act which contains the Zone's boss.


Much like Gimmick Mt. Zone, Scrambled Egg appears to be another cavernous Zone for Sonic to venture through, built as a secret base by Dr. Eggman with many small lights blinking in the darkness. This Zone is perhaps the most difficult in the game, with its primary difficulty coming in the form of the dozens of assorted transport tubes in the stage, which are maze-like in execution. Most of them will lead to either earlier parts of the Zone, dead ends, or into spike pits.

The boss of this level is none other than Mecha Sonic (referred to in the US manual as Silver Sonic).


Pipes and traps have been built inside this secret base. Watch Sonic at the top of the zone, defeat Dr Eggman’s super-secret weapon and aim for the mysterious final zone ”CRYSTAL EGG”!!

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 — Similar to Crabmeat. Crab bots which quickly move back and forth over a small area. Every once in a bit they pause to fire flashing projectiles in either direction.

Chaos Emerald location

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.
