Special level, Chaotix
Number of Acts: 6 (+ 6 wireframe mode)

The Special Stage for Chaotix is accessed after clearing a level with 50 or more Rings and jumping or throwing the partner character into the Giant Ring above the "Clear" post.

Gameplay

Each of the Special Stages takes place in a 3D hexagonal maze with the character running forwards at all times. To climb the walls of the maze, simply run up to their edge; the perspective will shift so the wall now acts as the floor.

The amount of time for the stage is determined by the number of Rings a player has, starting with all the Rings the player had entered the Giant Ring with (up to a maximum of 200), with one Ring deducted per second until there are no Rings left, which causes the stage to end. Falling off the stage will also end the stage in failure. The objective of the stage is to collect a set number of Blue Spheres (which is 4 for the first stage, 6 for the next one, and so on) before the checkpoint, and then to do the same for the second half of level. If the player has not collected enough Blue Spheres, the section of the stage repeats itself until the number is met. Complete the second section to attain a Chaos Ring.

If all six Chaos Rings have been collected, the Special Stage will transform into a wireframe version of the level, and completing the stage will give the player 50,000 points.
