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

Boss guide

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

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 Sonic

Sonic, give up! This time you're mine!

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 Amy cannot use it). When the other team members are near, the player should have Sonic use Blue Tornado 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.

Team Chaotix

I'll never let you take Cheese from me!

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 Rose 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 switching to Fly Formation and knocking Amy’s team out of the air with Thunder Shoot. This will knock them down temporarily. The player should then switch to Vector and start using Power Attacks on them to knock them out of the ring. Once all three members are knocked over the edge, the battle is over.
