Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (also simply Sonic 2) is the second entry in the Sonic series. It is a platforming game built as the sequel to the largely popular Sonic the Hedgehog, and has a sequel itself in the form of Sonic the Hedgehog 3. The story follows the titular Hedgehog and his new partner, Miles "Tails" Prower on their adventure to prevent the evil scientist Dr. Ivo Robotnik from stealing the Chaos Emeralds and powering his new weapon the Death Egg. Sonic and Tails, along the way, must fight through Robotnik's army, and free their friends.

In the Super Smash Flash series

Tails debuts in this game. Tails is featured as a playable character in both Super Smash Flash and Super Smash Flash 2. Tails borrows a couple of his abilities that were debuted in this game, such as the Spin Dash, and his multiple jumps, or Two-Tailed Flight.

The Tornado air plane that makes its first appearance in this game, acts as Tails' final smash in SSF2.

Super Sonic also appears for the first time in this game. He acts as a separate character to Sonic in the first Super Smash Flash. He becomes Sonic's Final Smash in Super Smash Flash 2.

The stage Casino Night Zone is based off the zone of the same name in this game.
