Hero Garden for Chao
Take a Chao and raise it with a Hero so that it will resemble a Hero. Win a Hero Fruit in the VMU game, then feed it to the Chao. Wait until it cocoons into an angel-like Chao (it will have a halo). Then, take the stairs going up at the Chao Lobby to reach the Hero Garden.

Hero or Dark Chao
To make a Chao a Hero, simply use a Hero character and keep pressing B or X to pet them. If done long enough, it will go white and be a Hero. To make it Dark, just use a Dark character and do the same thing.
Pumpkin head for Chao
Find one of the Skeleton Dogs; the easiest place to do so is Pumpkin Hill as Knuckles, and combine it with your Chao. As either Knuckles or Rouge, start digging around in the Chao Garden. Eventually a pumpkin will appear. If you give it to the Chao mixed with the Skeleton Dog it will put it on its head. If you want to take it off, either throw or hit your Chao.
You can find pumpkins in the regular and Hero Gardens, and skulls in the dark Garden. Get them by digging as Knuckles or Rouge.
Skull head for Chao
Find one of the Skeleton Dogs; the easiest place to do so is Pumpkin Hill as Knuckles, and combine it with your Chao. As either Knuckles or Rouge, start digging around in the Dark Chao Garden. Eventually a skull will appear. If you give it to the Chao mixed with the Skeleton Dog it will put it on its head. If you want to take it off, either throw or hit your Chao.
Wake a sleeping Chao
Sleeping Chao are annoying because you cannot feed them. To wake them up, stand next to it and whistle. You do not have to anger them by picking them up during a little nap.
Make Chao come to you
Enter the Chao Garden. Press Y until the whistle appears. Whistle and your Chao will get a question mark, look for you, and come running.
Go to a Chao Garden and get a coconut. Then, with a sleeping Chao, pick up the coconut and put it by the its head. The coconut will act as a pillow.

Two memory cards are required for this trick; one with the game file, and one with 128 blocks free space. Start the game and enter Chao World, with both memory cards inserted. While in Chao World, pull out the memory card with the game file on it. You will get a message stating that the memory card is not plugged in. Press a button to continue. Pick up the Chao to be cloned and go to the Transporter to put it on the memory card with 128 blocks free. Save it, then restart the game. Put the removed card back into its controller and start the game again. Go to Chao World and you will notice that the chao You cloned seems to have gone nowhere, but remove it from the memory card on the Transporter and one identical to it will appear.
Good and Evil Chao races
Get a good Chao and a bad Chao to unlock the good and evil Chao races.
Kart Racing mini-game
Catch the President with Tails, or catch Tails with Rouge. If you do both, you will unlock verses in two-player mode. Either way will work -- it does not matter which you do first.
Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow
Successfully complete the Last Stage? Level in story mode to unlock Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.
Rouge and Knuckles
At any point if you cannot seem to find what they are supposed to look for, intentionally die. You will lose all your rings, but in big stages you will find that it is to the most benefit. Note: Make sure that you have plenty of lives.
Collect all 180 Emblems to unlock the following new multi-player characters.
City Escape: Magic Gloves
Once you get the Fire Somersault Bracelet, return to the first level of Sonic's adventure (City Escape). Go towards the end of the level and look for a spot on the ground composed of four steel crates. Perform the bounce attack on top of them and you will fall into a secret room. Once there, you can bounce and destroy more crates to find the Magic Gloves. They will allow you to turn an enemy into a miniature throwable version. However, you have to get very close, making it not all that useful.
City Escape: Run on foot
At the start of the City Escape level, instead of landing on the ground with the board, scrape the roads on the board. When on foot run full speed at a wall and get knocked down. Pause game play if you fall after hitting the wall. Choose to restart the level to run on foot and not on the board.
Final Rush: Extra lives
As Sonic, after the first grinding rail, land on the first platform. Take the lower of the two rails. At the end of the rail, jump to the platform and use the only rail, on the ground. At the end of that rail, there is a platform with speed panels. At the end of the platform there is a bomb robot over another platform. Destroy it and use the rail off of the platform it was over. At the end of that rail is a check point with a small gap afterward. Jump the gap and go all the way down the big drop. At the bottom is a rail on the left side. It will take you to a platform with a ring box and a life box. Get the life and then choose "Exit" from the "Start" menu. Re-enter the level and you should have the same number of lives you had when you exited the level. Repeat this as many times as needed.
Mad Space: Phantasy Star Online items
In the Mad Space level as Rouge, you can find items from Phantasy Star Online lying around -- the boxes rather not items themselves. For example, you can find green and blue boxes from the game.
Security Hall: Fast completion
In this stage you play as Rouge the Bat and are given 5 minutes to complete it. This can prove to be quite difficult. If you have enough lives you can do this trick. If you cannot seem to find the Emeralds, you should die. You will keep the existing Emeralds that you have collected. You will begin at the start of the level and the Emeralds will move to different places. This is the fastest method for completing the level if you are having trouble.
Wild Canyon: Special Dragon Animal for your Chao
Play as Knuckles in the Wild Canyon level. Get all three Chao Boxes. The first Chao Box will be the Chao key. When you get the second Chao Box you can get 2, 3 or 4 animals. With the third Chao Box, you can get the Dragon.
Defeating Sonic or Shadow
Instead of trying to catch him off-guard, keep somersaulting at him. This makes the battle easy.
Make Omochao angry
Pick him up and throw him around. If you throw him at an enemy, he will explode. You can even shoot him with Eggman or Tails while he is flying around your head.
Big the Cat appearance
In Knuckles' Pumpkin Hill level, go to the one of the train gates. You can see Big the Cat hiding behind the gate, waving to you.

In the Tails level where you are running from the police and you first get your hover ability, Big the Cat can be seen again. There is a part in the level where you need to knock a column over in order to use it as a step to reach a higher level, from which you hover over to a platform with a police barricade and two robots. If you miss the platform and fall in the hole, you will see Big the Cat sitting on the girders underneath the platform.

In the Radical Highway level as Shadow, go to the rocket that takes you over the "Got Ring?" blimp. Big the Cat will be looking down. When playing under the hard difficulty setting, you will see him hanging from the blimp instead of looking down.
In the Death Chamber level as Knuckles, go in the middle, where the big engine is located. Climb around it in one location and you can see Big the Cat inside of it.
In the "Last?" story when playing as Dr. Eggman, as you fall down a ravine with lasers, Big is sitting on the far left ledge near the three water enemies.
When playing the last episode level as Rogue, go to the top, and when you press the button, fly the same way that you got there. Climb up on the wood thing and you should see Big the Cat. You cannot go there -- he is just turning his back at you.
Big can be seen in the Lagoon level for Rouge. Go to the second lagoon and dive down under the water. Find the turtle that takes you to the secret lagoon prison. On the way there in the passage way. Big will be face down in the sand.

Load Sonic Adventure, then go to the Chao Garden where the Chao you want in Sonic Adventure 2 is located. Put it into Chao Adventure. Load Sonic Adventure 2 and go to a Chao Garden. Go to the transporter. On the VMU with Chao Adventure, there should be an egg. It is the egg for your Chao from Sonic Adventure. When it hatches, it will be back to its first form.
