Sonic the Hedgehog 2 introduces a brand new character to the mix, in the form of Miles ‘Tails’ Prower. Sonic and Dr. Robotnik (Eggman) remain from the original title, but alter-egos and a pre-boss nemesis is also included.

In Wing Fortress Zone, a silver robotic version of Sonic is introduced, called “Mecha Sonic”. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is its only appearance. Sonic can transform into a ‘Super’ form of himself once he obtains the seven Chaos Emeralds. See the sections below for more details.
