Top 10 Classic Sonic Zones


The Top Ten

1 Flying Battery Zone - Sonic and Knuckles

This zone is my favorite because it has lots of challenge, but also fun at the same time.

This is the one fun Sonic & Knuckles stage that wasn't remade... - mattstat716

2 Lava Reef Zone - Sonic and Knuckles

This should be top 1! Seriously, this game has awesome music for sure & great graphics! This is the best zone of the whole Sonic franchise ever!

3 Chemical Plant Zone - Sonic 2

What is there to say about Chemical Pant? Music- Mega Man Standards. Speed- Incredible. So incredible that I normally fall through the floor. Boss- Although easy, it is challenging if you don't get the pattern down. Comparison to the rest of the game- GOD! (Except for Casino Night, but that didn't really compare. ) 5/5! The best level in a Genesis, game, the Sonic series and the best thing done by Sega altogether. No wonder it got remade for Sonic Generations.

My favorite zone of all time

4 Sandopolis Zone - Sonic and Knuckles

Hate if you want, but this was an epic level - eyeah

5 Scrap Brain Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog

Great challenge. You either go through it perfectly, or die several times trying

6 Ice Cap Zone - Sonic 3

So good and calm after the disaster that was carnival night

Carnival night had Super Sonic fun.

Ice cap has...


good music? - mattstat716

7 Mystic Cave Zone - Sonic 2

Creepy music, multiple paths, and a great boss level. Casino Night Zone is better in my opinion, but Mystic Cave is number two.

8 Hydrocity Zone - Sonic 3
9 Launch Base Zone - Sonic 3


10 Metropolis Zone - Sonic 2

This stage is underrated because of the Sonic Adventure series. Well, it should be in the top 5s.

The Contenders

11 Death Egg Zone - Sonic and Knuckles
12 Aquatic Ruin Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog 2

This should be in the top 5s. I remember this zone, it will forever be one of my favorites.

13 Stardust Speedway Zone

It's the fastest zone in the game. And wile it may not seem that hard (spoilers) it has the the best boss in the game... METAL SONIC!

This is the greatest zone ever! I love going fast & the Sega Genesis animation!

I love Classic Sonic much better than Modern Sonic!

14 Starlight Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog 1
15 Tidal Plant Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble
16 Techno Tower - Knuckles' Chaotix
