The Gold Klagens are found in BINGO Highway for Team Chaotix, Bullet Station for Team Sonic and Chaotix, and lastly in the aforementioned stages plus Casino Park and Lost Jungle for Team Dark and Super Hard Mode. Additionally, they are found in Robot Storm for Team Sonic and Dark.
Like their normal counterparts, Gold Klagens are jellyfish-like robots that grab the player's teammates. What makes Gold Klagens more dangerous than their predecessors is their ability to travel through dimensions. If a teammate is not rescued from a Gold Klagen quickly enough, it will warp to another dimension and take the teammate with them. This removes him/her from the team completely until a Team Blast is used, or the player reaches a checkpoint. Though they have the same health (6 HP) as a regular Klagen, they award 400 points when destroyed.
- The Gold Klagen will release a team member after about 20 seconds depending on the character captured. If the team member caught is not necessary to advance the next section of the stage they will be released. If they are required to advance the Gold Klagen will float away from the player three times in an attempt to get out of reach of the player's attacks then disappear.
