When you return to White Space after successfully clearing a Challenge for the first time, a Bonus Bell will appear above the Challenge Gate. Strike the Bonus Bell and catch the musical note before the time runs out to unlock bonus content in the Collection Room.

— United Kingdom instruction booklet, Sonic Generations[1]

The Bonus Bell[1] is a gimmick that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a small bell that grants musical notes.


The Bonus Bells are small golden bells that hang in the hole above the portals on Challenge Act Gates. Each gate only has one Bonus Bell.


In the console/PC version of Sonic Generations, the Bonus Bell are objects in White Space that will appear on its Challenge Act Gate when its designated Challenge Act is successfully completed.

When a Bonus Bell first appears it will be golden in coloration. However, the playable character can interact with it by jumping into it, causing it to ring out and release a yellow or blue musical note. Collecting these music notes before they disappear allows the player to unlock additional contents, like new music tracks or pieces of artwork, in the Collection Room. In addition, once the Bonus Bell has been rung and its musical note has been collected, it will turn dull bronze in color and can no longer be rung.
