A swamp filled with large creatures and toxic gas.
Playable characters (story mode)
Mystic Ruins ( is the third area that appears in ミスティックルーイン Misutikkurūin ) ? . In this game, Mystic Ruins again features as a game area, although the characters visit a more swamp-like section than those seen in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood .
Mystic Ruins is home to many wild animals, such as
Queen Wasps, Giant Millipedes and Colossal Worms. Toxic, malodorous gases are emitted into the air by  Procurator Shade's inter-dimensional Nocturnus Clan forces, in a bid to clear the area of G.U.N. soldiers. The gas is only passable by Big the Cat, who is recruited into the party in this area.
Along with the crumbling
Knuckles Clan ruins as seen in Sonic Adventure, the Mystic Ruins now hosts one of Doctor Robotnik's abandoned bases. Said base has been taken over by the Nocturnus Clan forces, who are using it as a prison to hold Knuckles captive.
Shadow the Hedgehog can be seen here when the player begins their search for Dr. Eggman and also unintentionally helps the player on their quest in Chapter 3.
The music for Mystic Ruins is a remix of the music that plays in
The Final Fight from ( Sonic 3D Blast Sega Genesis version). If the player selects certain dialogue options while encountering Shadow, they can have Shadow drop the Eggman device and leave without going through the boss fight against him. This is the only time in the game where a boss fight can be avoided.
Rouge is particularly unimpressed by the stench when she first arrives in Mystic Ruins. "Ugh. It's called "a shower", people. You might want to look into it."
