Altar Emerald (アルターエメラルド Arutā Emerarudo?, lit. "Altar Emerald") is the eighth Zone of Sonic Advance 3. The player immediately travels to it after defeating the Egg Gravity and clearing Chaos Angel. Once this Zone has been reached, it can be accessed again via Chaos Angel's Zone Map by moving just a bit further past the Boss Capsule and finding the Final Zone Ring.

Altar Emerald takes place in front of the Master Emerald altar on Angel Island.

Description

Story

Gameplay

Altar Emerald is a boss level; instead of a full-length platforming level, it is a simple straight path with two back-to-back boss fights (with Rings). Said bosses are G-merl and the Hyper Eggrobo.

Overview

After beating Dr. Eggman, if Sonic is the lead character and all seven Chaos Emeralds have been collected, G-merl will go rogue and harness the power of the Emeralds, thus the true final zone will appear, Nonaggression. If not, the normal ending will play in which the heroes attack Eggman, but the scientist escapes along with G-merl, followed by the Master Emerald restoring the planet to its original state.

Bosses

G-merl

Main article: G-merl

The first boss of Altar Emerald is G-merl. During this battle, G-merl will attack the player with full-body charges, missile barrages in two different formations, or launch surprise attacks by teleporting into the middle of the field and then charge at the player. To damage G-merl, the player must attack him when he lets his guard down. After four hits he will be defeated.

Hyper Eggrobo

Main article: Hyper Eggrobo

The second and last boss of Altar Emerald is the Hyper Eggrobo, piloted by Dr. Eggman. To damage this boss, the player must attack Eggman's cockpit.

In the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing, the Altar Emerald makes an appearance. In this media, much like in the games, the Altar Emerald was the site where Sonic once fought Gemerl.

Trivia

  • The Zone's theme song is a remix of Holy Summit's music from Sonic Battle.
  • The Zone's mechanics are similar to the Death Egg Zone, as both of them are only a sub-boss and then the final boss.
  • Altar Emerald appears as part of the Sonic the Hedgehog Adventure World in Lego Dimensions.
