The Black Market in Sonic Adventure 2: Battle.

The Black Market, also known as Shop, is a shop that regularly appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. In Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut and Sonic Adventure 2, this is where items for Chao are bought or sold in exchange for Rings. Items include hats, fruit, and eggs. In Sonic Riders and Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, new Extreme Gear can be purchased and exchanged. The Black Market is managed by a Chao, and is located at the Chao Kindergarten in Sonic Adventure 2 or in the Station Square Garden in Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut next to the entrance.

Etymology

The name of the shop derives from the term of the same name, which is used to describe a type of business that deals either in shady business dealings or supplies contraband/illegal items. The fact that it is located inside a locker indicates that the Chao selling the items was a shady character.

Trivia

  • In the manual for Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, there is a picture of a "Smart Fruit" located above the Chao Fruit; however, although its data is in the final build of the game in usable form, it can never be obtained anywhere at all in the game. It must be accessed by hacking. The "Smart Fruit" increases the chao's intelligence stat by +12%, with the last bite increasing +14% instead.
  • The mushroom somewhat looks like the 1UP mushroom from the Super Mario Bros. games.
  • The Black Market makes a cameo appearance in the Team Sonic Racing Overdrive episode "Dangerous Distractions".
