Sea Labryth

Sonic in the submerged ruins of the Labyrinth Zone.

A stage that has an ancient ruins theme features a setting or significant sections with ruins of buildings in the background or on the course. In many instances, Sonic must run on or among the ruins; in other instances, the ruins are only seen in the background of the level. This theme often combines elements of the underwater theme and the desert theme as well.

Common elements include structures that are crumbling or have fallen apart, or ancient structures that are still intact but are, nevertheless, dilapidated or simply abandoned. Unlike several other themes, this theme does not usually feature special enemies.
