The Pipe (パイプ Paipu?) is a gimmick that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a small tube that hides Animals inside it.


The Pipe is a small, white, bent tube with a thick mouth which protrudes from the unlikeliest of surfaces. It is apparently a preferred dwelling place for small Animals.


In Sonic Adventure 2, and its enhanced port Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, Pipes can be found in every Stage. Their purpose is to provide more Animals which they contain within them, though they may also contain bombs. To use a Pipe in gameplay, the player has to press DreamcastB.png near it, which will make the playable character whistle into it. This will coax the Animal out for the player to collect.
