Team Dark is the second boss in Team Chaotix's story and the fifth boss in Team Sonic's story in Sonic Heroes. It is a three-on-three brawl against Team Dark that takes place in the Grand Metropolis skyline with Team Chaotix and later in the depths of Lost Jungle's swamps with Team Sonic.

Boss guide

The objective of these battles is to knock Team Dark off the edges of the battle platforms into the bottomless pits surrounding them. There is no damage system in this boss, meaning Team Dark cannot be defeated by simply damaging them. Grabbing the Power Cores and Rings before the opponents do is crucial. Without Rings, Team Dark will fly back farther, making them easier to be knocked off. Some characters are more suited to battle against specific Team Dark members due to having moves that are most effective against their particular formations:

Enemy
formation
Counter
formation
Speed Power
Power Flight
Flight Speed

If the player loses any team members, they can be brought back to the field by performing the Team Blast.

Team Chaotix

I'll find Eggman's treasure first!

In this arena, there are a total of nine Power Cores; three blue, three yellow, and three red. The player should start by grabbing the Blue Power Core in the center (so Shadow cannot use it). When the other team is near, have Espio use Leaf Swirl to fling them into the air. While they are grounded, they can collect more Power Cores or steal their Rings. Staying aware of the other team's location is key to winning.

If Leaf Swirl does not work, switching to Charmy and shooting them off the edge is an alternative strategy.

Team Sonic

What was with that hedgehog that looked like my twin?

In this area, there are only three available Power Cores and they sit outside the arena in balloons. There is also a Shield hidden in a Wooden Container on the stage. For this battle, Team Dark will be much more difficult to defeat as they will always switch to the formation that is dominant over that of the player.

The player should start the battle by having Sonic use Blue Tornado on Team Dark. This will knock them down temporarily. The player should then switch to Tails and use Thunder Shoot to collect the Power Cores in the balloons on the side of the arena, then use Thunder Shoot to keep the Team Dark members down. When a member of Team Dark is downed, the player should switch to Knuckles and use Fire Dunk to knock them off of the edge. Once all three members of the other team are knocked over the edge, the battle is over.
