Guide By: FeLizP
There are 15 achievements with a total of 250 points.
Note: There is DLC for this game that upgrades Sonic Adventure to Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut, the Gamecube version of the game which was released in 2003. It contains 3 extra achievements and makes the game more difficult to complete because of the Mission Mode. See the DLC portion for more info.
Step 1 - Adventure Mode:
Each story is pretty easy to complete even for novices to Sonic Adventure. When selecting a character be sure to select Instruction if you need help learning the basics. If you ever get stuck at any point there are pink orbs throughout the action stages and adventure fields that will give you hints when you touch them, use them if you need help with what to do next . Once you complete each story adventure you will receive credits and that’s the end of the game for that character. Upon completing all Adventures for all characters you will unlock Super Sonic as a playable character and also the “Super Sonic” achievement!
Note: To speed things up a bit, cut-scenes can be skipped by simply pressing the button.
Step 2 - Trial Mode:
These vary between characters, not all Level A and B missions have the same objectives for all characters. Big the Cat's require you to catch 1000 and 2000g fishes.
Step 3 - Sub-Games:
Step 4 - Chao System:
Depending on what animals you feed your Chao, will decide which stat will get a boost. For example feed it gorillas for power or otters for swim. You will need to get your Chao strong enough to compete in the Chao races located at the Station Square Chao garden, if you wish to attain all achievements. There is a Chao garden in each Adventure field. The Station Square Chao garden is in the Hotel elevator. The Mystic Ruins Chao garden is in the cave near Tails’ workshop and the Egg Carrier Chao garden can be accessed by typing E-G-G-M-A-N on the keypad inside the Egg Carrier. You can also teleport between gardens with the tele-pods in each garden!
Note: Make sure you use button when interacting with your Chao or else you may harm it on accident.
Step 5 - Emblems:
Note: The “Perfect Adventurer” achievement stacks with the “Metal Sonic” achievement. Once you have all 130 Emblems head into Trial Mode and it will unlock, this is for DLC only.
Make sure you hit the ramps as you are touching the red line or else you wont hit the trail of rings, make sure that you are also holding up. You will know that you hit the 2nd ramp correctly if you jump straight over the bridge and land near the 3rd ramp. DO NOT expect to get this on your first try, it takes timing and patience. It took me 3 hours to finally get it right but this may not be the same for you. Just keep hitting the ramps as mentioned and you will get it, just keep trying!
Mission 54 is quite troublesome too. With Tails, try jumping with to slow yourself down so that it's easier to collect the flags. But you must also make sure that Sonic doesn't win the race before you grab them all or else you will have to start all over. So make sure you have a decent lead before grabbing the flags. If you miss a flag then quickly hit restart. Please see Darker Super Sonic's video #3 at the Mission Mode thread, it helps out a lot! The DLC Mission Mode Guide can be found HERE.

|Clear all characters stories.||(1)|
There are 6 total playable characters, 5 that you will unlock along the way as you play Sonic's Adventure or by playing with other characters. Each Adventure contains Action Stages, Bosses, and cut scenes but are easy enough to get through, only Sonic's adventure has some tricky parts. Some adventures require you to find stone keys in order to progress further. If you ever get stuck on where to find them:
Here is what you must do in order to finish each character adventure:
Make use of the Instruction option when selecting a character if you have never played Sonic Adventure, as it will help you if you are new to the game. Make sure when using Big the Cat that you press to get a HIT when Froggy nibbles on your lure. Sonic, Tails, Amy, and E-102's stages are all linear and should be very easy. Knuckles stages require you to find 3 emerald shards that can be found using the radar. You can also use hint orbs for help! Please use their advice before posting questions in the forums!
Get 100% completion for all 6 characters Adventure Mode and this will unlock after your final characters credits. You will also unlock Super Sonic as a playable character!
|The Fastest & Strongest||20|
|Get Level A on all the Action Stages.||(5)|
Once you have completed all Adventure Modes for all 6 characters go to Trial Mode. From here you can replay the Action Stages you previously beat; only this time you must complete Level B and Level A for each one. To start Level B, simply go to a stage and you will receive the B mission of it. Complete the B mission to get the A mission next time you play it. Novices to this game may have trouble with some of Sonic's Level A missions, if this is the case visit the video guide at the bottom. For the most part the B Level requires you to collect 50 rings then complete your objective. And the Level A are usually timed based. However this is not the case for Big the Cat. For Big, make sure you have all Lure powerups or else you wont be able to find 2000g fish.
Check the Upgrade Location Guide for all power up locations. It can be found HERE.
Level B and Level A missions can also be played in Adventure mode! You will find a list of all Trial missions for each character HERE.
|Sub Game Master||20|
|Get all Emblems of the Sub Games.||(1)|
While playing Adventure Mode you will encounter mini games within some of the Action Stages. For example, Amy's Hedgehog Hammer mini game or the Sky Chase Acts. Once you have completed everyone’s Adventure head into Sub-Game from the main menu and complete the "A" mission for each characters Sub-game. Here is a list of each Sub-game and scores needed for the Emblem.
Sky Chase Act 1: Beat a score of 8000
Note: Most people have trouble with this one. Try repeatedly shooting the bombs that the turrets shoot at you, and avoid killing the turrets until you're about to pass them. This will grant you some extra score than usual. Just try to destroy all bombs the turrets shoot at you then quickly kill the turrets with a lock on shot for extra score! Other than the turret areas, just be sure to lock on to multiple flying ships then let go of the action button for better score bonuses.
Sky Chase Act 2: Beat a score of 20000
Sand Hill: Beat a score of 10000
Note: For this one make sure you never lose your X multiplier. Try finding good routes that will enable you to hit another loop before your multiplier resets.Beware of obstacles and use speed ramps to get to the next loop you see before your multiplier resets.
This achievement will unlock upon completing your final sub-games Level A mission.
|Chao's Best Friend||20|
|Get all Emblems of the Chao Race.||(4)|
These five Emblems (and this achievement) are awarded for completing all of the Jewel Races. Doing so will require a few hours of grinding and will require that you beat the Beginner Races first.
The five courses are:
Note: all courses will test your Chao's Running ability
To win the Beginner Races you are going to want to have your Chao's stats in the 350-450 range, but probably at least 400. For the Jewel Races you are going to want all stats at least 900, but probably closer to 1000.
To increase your Chao's stats you can either give it animals or feed it Chao Fruit. Chao Fruit can be bought in the Black Market, which is located in the Station Square Chao Garden. Animals can be found in the Action Stages, appearing in little green spheres after you defeat an enemy. Most animals will greatly increase specific stats but also decrease others, but there are a few which will slightly increase random stats. The animals:
Be sure to wait until you Chao has evolved into an adult before taking it to compete in races as it will run much faster. Don't expect your Chao to always win races the first time as sometimes you may have to retry a few times to get first place. Don't forget to cheer it on! This is in no way difficult, but will take some time and patience as this is a slow process. There are two exploits you can use to make this process faster.
Trick for fast rings: Start up the adventure with Knuckles. In Station Square dig all over the beach and the grass until you have found a magnetic shield. Once you have one, go into the hotel and stand on the switch at the top of the stairs to have rings continually respawn, which your magnetic shield will grab for you. Once you have 999 rings (the limit) go into an Action Stage and complete it. MAKE SURE NOT TO GET HIT. If you have dug everywhere but not found a magnetic shield, reset the field by going into an Action Stage, Mystic Ruins, or Egg Carrier and come back.
|Get all Emblems in the Adventure Field.||(3)|
There are 12 total Emblems that are hidden throughout all 3 Adventure Fields with 4 in each Field.
This video below will make things easier for you if you happened to have miss a few Emblems out there.
|The Perfect Adventurer||40|
|Get all 130 Emblems.|
There are 130 total Emblems in the game and in order to obtain them all you must:
All of these requirements have already been described further above. If you have been following the guide then you should have this one already in the bag. Once your Emblem count reaches 130, this achievement will unlock. If you need to check you emblem count go to the main menu, go to Trial, then Emblem Results.
Note: The Super Sonic adventure is very easy to complete. You will first go to Angel Island to see Knuckles then afterward visit the forest at Mystic Ruins. There will be many cut scenes but once you reach Perfect Chaos simply run up to his body and you will swirl around within him and then burst out of his head, this is how you attack him. Watch out for his projectiles and use speed ramps when you can.
|DLC: Sonic Adventure DX Upgrade|
|Cost: 400 MSP Achievements: 3 Points: 50|
|Get all 130 Emblems by playing Sonic Adventure DX.||(39)|

When you collect all 130 Emblems Metal Sonic will be available in Trial Mode. Select him and play all his Trial stages. They are the same Action Stages as Sonics. You must play Level C, B, then A for all 10 Action Stages. This is the same thing you did when you were getting Level A completions with Sonic only this time you do it with Metal Sonic. Here is a rundown of all his stages:
Once you complete the Level A mission for your last Action Stage this achievement will unlock.
Tips: Since you have already done all of Sonic's A missions then you should have no problem doing it again, right? There are 30 missions in all and should only take 2 hours to do if you're consistent, and use the same short cuts as you did with Sonic. Don't forget to spin dash!
|Mission All Accomplished||20|
|Clear all 60 missions.||(18)|
Mission Mode is exclusive to the Sonic Adventure DX: Directors Cut upgrade and can be accessed from the main menu. During mission mode, you will take your selected character into the Adventure Fields and you must search for their mission cards, their are 60 in total. Every time you touch a card you will be given a random task to do. Some of these are very easy while others can be very annoying. Some you can complete within the Adventure Field itself, while others require you to visit Action Stages in order to fulfill. For the most part you will do fetch type tasks such as:
Remember these missions are character specific and can only be done with the character that mission is assigned to. In other words, characters cannot play other characters missions! If you ever need to check your progress, go to ‘Missions’ in the pause menu. For a guide on all 60 missions please refer the Mission Mode Guide by clicking HERE.
Note: Mission numbers 53 and 54 may be the only two missions that may give you trouble. Please click the link above for assistance with these annoying missions.
