SEGA's legendary mascot Sonic The Hedgehog makes his historic PlayStation 2 debut! In "Sonic Heroes," Sonic embarks on his biggest adventure ever, with his trademark blazing speed and a new gameplay twist. Sonic and his friends have evolved, adopting a configuration feature that allows gamers to control three playable characters simultaneously, using Sonic's speed, Knuckles' power, and Tails' ability to fly, to conquer massive worlds. This team-based gameplay marks the next evolution in Sonic's gaming career, taking platform gaming to a completely new level. Using the three formations and the powerful moves that each team member has, Sonic and his friends combine forces to battle the ultimate evil.

Press Left, Up, Up, Left.
Hold down X & Triangle buttons at the same time after you select the level, until you see the teams talk to each other. This is only avalible in 2 player mode.
When flying near a wall as Team Chaotix in any level, rapidy press the X and square buttons repeatedly and move toward the wall. This should make you use thunder shoot as you quickly fly upward. If you do this enough times, Charmy should do the attack that he does when he's alone, and you should start over on your flying, starting at the point you used the atack. Do that enough times, and you should start to climb up the wall. This mostly leads to a glitch area and/or a trap. For example, on Egg Fleet, I tried this to go past the goal ring. It took a long time and I had to go very high, but when I made it, I found that restarting or quitting are the only 2 ways out!
It's easy 1st choose team chaotix and beat the mission w/ An emerald. Next at the stage with the emerald as you are chasing it hold down the square button and you'd get the emerald quicker.
Here is another way to do the Tornado Jump. Change into speed formation when in front of a pole. If your speed character is Level 3 do a homing attack at the pole and it will have the same affect as the tornadoes.
I'm sure you probably already know this, but when playing with Team Rose in speed formation, hold down the Jump button(X) and Amy will momentarily sustain flight by spinning around with her hammer like a helicopter. The reason only Team Rose can do this is because Amy cannot do a Triangle Jump.
Team Chaotix has the advantage when it comes to lasers. Have Espio turn invisible and just simply walk through it without a care.
Hit square as knuckles. Then jump and hit square in the air.
To turn espio invisible, jump and hit square in the air.
When playing with team Chaotix, push A+B to make Espio invisible.

This is another long boss battle with 13 waves of enemies.
Wave 1- Air bots. Once again, use Sonic Bounce or Tail's thundershoot. Sonic seems to have this strange tendency to jump right off to his death in this battle, so bounce around slowly and with caution. Wave 2- Easy peasy Ground bots. Knuckles is your man. Wave 3- Stand on the box and while using Knuckles, throw either Sonic or Tails at the formation. Wave 4- Flip the Turtle Bots like before. Wave 5- Ground bots that use gunfire. Stand on the box as Knuckles and attack from there. Wave 6- This is like a rest stop. Easy enemies that die fast. Wave 7- Destroy the gunners quickly first and then go nutzoid with Knuckles. Wave 8 - Stay close to the Hammer bot so you won't get hit by it's spinning attack and punch, punch, punch through everything he throws at you. Wave 9- 3 Big but unprotected Hammer Bots. Stay close and hit them before they can properly attack. Wave 10- Troublesome air formation. Use Tails to fly above their gun fire and use Thundershoot to take them out quickly. Wave 11- Team Blast is a good thing to use to get rid of the trains. Wave 12- Red bots aren't much trouble. But some can fire at you. Wave 13- Quickly target the Big Hammer bot and punch away. This is the last battle, so use Team Blast as soon as you get it.
Use Sonic's tornado spin to deal with the air formation once again. Use the tornado spin in the middle of the platform until it's all over. If this doesn't work (it won't, all of the time) simply use Knuckles to attack them. If you aren't fast enough, they will use Chaos Control. Use the Team Blast trick if you are down to one character (if other characters are knocked off the edge) to bring them back to life.
Immediately dash to the albatross, ignoring the 3 sentry robots and attack the left wing with the homing attack to destroy the cannons. Once the cannons are destroyed, the wings life bar will be revealed. Keep attacking the wing with the homing atacks until the wing is taken down. After the cutscene, select Sonic and dash towards the Albatross, using the homing attack on the Fan and repeatedly bounce on it. This way you won't lose your target or have the need to keep chasing it After the fan is destroyed , you must work your way up to the many cockpits. Bounce until you reach the one at the front which is of course, Eggman's. Destroy it to defeat the stage.
This gets a little rough. This boss battle features 12, count em, 12 different waves.
1st Wave- Have Sonic bounce on them or use Knuckles Thundershoot against the Airbots 2nd Wave- Same as Wave 1. 3rd Wave- Groundbots are added to the mix and easily destroyed with Knuckles. You can use the springs at the bottom if som bots are too high. 4th Wave- Use Tails to destroy the air formation. 5th Wave- 4 Airbots. Same method as Wave 1, but Thundershoot works best. 6th Wave- Use Tails first to detroy the air units and then switch to Knuckle s to detroy shielded robots. 7th Wave- Same as Wave 1. 8th Wave- Same as Wave 1 with easily destroyed air units, but watch out for the grapplers. 9th Wave- Team Blast is effective against the Turtle Bots 10th Wave- Same as Wave 1. 11th Wave- The Turtle Bots are tougher, so flip and destroy them before using Knuckles to destroy the shield carriers. Homing isn't effective so use Thundershoot. 12th Wave- Use Team Blast. If you don't have it, just jump up the spring with Tails and grab the one at the top.
When Team Rose goes into formation, select Sonic and use the Tornado spin. You can finish them off within 20 seconds if you continue using this attack.
Start by dashing towards the Egg Hawk, collecting rings on your way. Wait until it stops at the open ground area and starts it's rotary attacks. Select Knuckles and attack the square button next to it until the Egg Hawk blows up.
If characters are lost during battle, use Team Blast (once you earn it) to bring them back from the dead.
