Sonic 2 Easter Egg - Shadow the Hedgehog

This is a pretty cool egg. You can see Sonic transform into Shadow.

Directions:

1. Start Sonic the Hedgehog 2 from Sonic Mega Colletion.

2. At the main menu, press <Up> then <Start> to reach the Options Menu.

3. Highlight "Sound Test." Play sounds 19, then 65, then 9, then 17. You will hear a chime to confirm correct code entry. Then press X + Start. You will return to the main menu.

4. Make sure that 1 Player is selected, then press B + Start. You will be taken to the Level Select Menu.

5. Select Sound Test from the Level Select Menu. Enter Debug Mode by playing sounds 1, 9, 9, 2, 1, 1, 2, 4 (in that order.) Yet another chime will sound to confirm code entry. Highlight Emerald Hill Zone Act 1 or 2 (it really doesn't matter.) Press B + Start. Hold the buttons until the level starts.

6. Now to change Sonic into Ashura. Press A and Sonic will change into a ring. Press B until he changes into an invisible object (a waterfall.) Press X to paste this object.

7. Keep pasting waterfalls from where Sonic starts to the monkey-like enemy in the tree. You will see Sonic's life counter start to change. Keep pasting waterfalls if you like, it will change Sonic further.

8. Press A. Sonic will reappear, but he will look like Shadow. He still has all the same moves as Sonic.

This doesn't seem like an easter egg to me. By the description, it sounds more like a graphic glitch.

Definately a graphical glitch... it changes more than just sonic's color. Disappears once you finish the level. It looks really cool, though.

Actually, he doesn't have a name. The glitch picked up that name somewhere, but nobody knows where exactly it came from. He's not a character, official or otherwise.

guess what...YOU'RE ALL WRONG!!!! :D let me shed some light.you se ethat code puts you into dev mods(otherwise known as developers mode).you see all you did was switch his pallette,thats it.you switches his pallete to the pallette of something else in the game.i havent played sonic in a while so i dont remember whats that color.but this Ashura person is probably based off of this pallete swap(same as ermac from mortal kombat is based off of a pallette swap glitch).thats like saying in SvC 2 Eo in the pallete changing option you're making a new character...but you're not...
