Sonic Advance – Unlockables & Cheats

sonic advance cheats

Here are all the guides, tips, and strategies to enjoy playing Sonic Advance with unlockables and cheats.


Play as Sonic & Tails in Story Mode

On the main menu, pick Game Start, then highlight Sonic on the character select screen. Instead of hitting A like you normally would, press the following buttons:

  • Up, right, down, right, L, right, R, right, A

If you enter the code correctly, you’ll hear a ring chime. Now when you start a level, you’ll play as Sonic with an AI-controlled Tails following you around.

Tiny Chao Garden

Beat the game using any character.

Moon Zone

Retrieve all 7 Chaos Emeralds with any character, then beat the game with every character. Use Sonic to beat the Moon Zone to unlock it as a playable stage.


The game is enjoyable by itself, but cheating makes it even better. Always keep in mind to input codes with an Action Replay, Codebreaker, or GameShark. All the below codes are compatible with most emulators.

Note: before entering cheats, be aware that altering the game can cause random freezing and several other glitches.
