Windy Valley (ウィンディーバレー Windī Barē?) is an Action Stage that appears in in Sonic Adventure, its enhanced port, Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut, and the 2010 remaster. It is a plateau-like valley high in the sky located at the Mystic Ruins. It is the second Action Stage played as Sonic, the first as Tails, and the third as Gamma. As with most other Action Stages in its games, Windy Valley has different level designs for each character, which have three optional missions each.

Description

Overall, Windy Valley is an area in the Mystic Ruins, acceded by using the Wind Stone at the Windy cave. The first section in both Sonic and Gamma's versions of this Action Stage, Windy Valley is a plateau-like mountainous region high above the surface. The soil here takes the form of brown rockoon formations that are covered in a thick layer of green grass. Various platforms here are separated from each other by bridges (some of which are broken) or Wind Paths. The area is decorated by several floating platforms with fans pointing upwards.

The second section of Sonic's Windy Valley version takes place inside of a dark gray tornado. Nevertheless, the platforms and set pieces are the same as the ones found in the previous section.

The third section of both Sonic and Tails' Windy Valley versions takes place high above the clouds, with a clean, light blue sky above. No signs of the plateau can be seen; instead, there are various beige platforms covered in lime grass and connected by paths of rusty, brown metal.
