Unused Items

There are a number of unused objects in the game. These objects include a button (Aoki Switch) in Lost World, tumbleweed in Windy Valley and a trash can in Speed Highway. Dude discovered these in the PC port of SADX. The tumbleweed in Windy Valley could be accessed by changing the graphic quality to the highest in the Settings screen during the autorun.

Casino Object oddity

If the player enters and exits the Casino area, incorrectly textured copies of the casino geometry will appear at their global location. This is sometimes used in theories that the Adventure Fields were all one map at some point, but in actuality this only happens because objects don't unload between areas in Adventure fields, and the Casino lights happen to be a very big and noticeable object.

Station Square Hotel Keys

flarn2006 discovered that if Big enters the Station Square hotel before clearing Ice Cap, the door to the pool area will be locked - something that never happens otherwise. Keys are found nearby - when placed in the appropriate sockets, the door will unlock. The hotel can be entered using a glitch involving Station Square's boat docks and a placeable object. A video can be found here.

Warning: If the player clears Emerald Coast early, they'll be sent to the Egg Carrier and become permanently stuck.

Mystic Ruins Door Unused Behavior


The door in the Mystic Ruins that Sonic, Knuckles and Gamma pass through to access the Master Emerald shrine and Red Mountain has an opening/closing animation as well as being fully textured on both sides. Unfortunately, through regular means it is impossible to view any of this in-game as the door is only seen from one side and never seen opening/closing to any of the characters.

6564-WM49-XQKW2 + W5ET-B9DN-FC5Z2 + GD5K-GYF4-QMF0G + 981Q-QT1U-69HME


Moon jump: Big
01XT-KK8E-QD3HE + 9Z1U-U0TV-F9HQE Super hammer jump: Amy
2J3U-HEMN-26TJH + QTA2-RD19-7D31W Mega hammer jump: Amy
HYCK-6XPF-DBWWA + Z325-H8T6-28TGY Moon jump: Amy
W9UF-C4ZW-ZAPKY + W36B-30NG-4NMUT + 3G17-J9JR-JF7ET + 70EB-DYNX-MK5B7 + MTRA-NWFT-KZ4F2 Glide upwards: Knuckles (Y+A) - Knuckles will only go upwards 10 or so feet in the game and then even out and glide back down. Letting go and pressing again makes Knuckles go higher. Alternatively, holding Z and pressing A might do the normal upward glide at first, so hit A again and Knuckles will shoot upwards diagonally much higher than with just A.
A610-U7T8-KFQ8P + 8X6H-UD90-Y0TW7 Always free camera mode: This make scenes in the game where the camera was very well scripted, such as the whale chase in Emerald Coast, much more difficult to play. This will not affect the camera in cutscenes, however.
4PP1-7DKF-30JTH + 7B41-AZ0K-MVXYY Debug Menu: For Sonic Adventure DX, the Debug code works differently than in the Dreamcast version. It is not as full-featured as the Debug mode present in the Dreamcast version. When Sonic is running, a white "collision sphere" is drawn around him, sometimes the "death areas" (where the player can fall and die) are lit up in white, and on the adventure fields, the ring counter is always visible.
Level Codes

Credit goes to sonicblur for spending the time researching these codes, and Sazpaimon for encoding them.

To activate the level selected, hold the D-Pad directional arrow up before loading a level, and the specified level will load instead.
