The Videotape is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a collectible that contains a video of one of the cutscenes from Sonic Unleashed.


The Videotapes are located in various places in the game and are collected in different ways; they can either be found inside the Acts of the Action Stages and Entrance Stages where they look like floating VHS and can be picked up by touching them, be purchased from shops in the Town Stages with Rings, be given from Professor Pickle after giving him a Souvenir, be given by the townspeople in the Town Stages after completing a certain Mission, or obtaioned by fulfilling certain conditions. However, they only become available after the cutscene they contain are seen in normal gameplay. There exists a total of 59 Videotapes in the game.

In gameplay, the player can see Videotapes in Pickle's Room after clearing Savannah Citadel Night Act 1. To see the Videotapes in Professor Pickle's room in the Spagonia and Shamar Town Stages, the player must purchase the TV.
