Shadow the Hedgehog
Shadow receives four different upgrades, all of which Sonic also has or at least an equivalent to.



Air Shoes
  • Purpose: Allows you to dash through a line of rings.
  • Requirements: None
  • Location: White Jungle. After reaching the area where there are 4 crates in your way, bust through them, and follow the path. You should come out and swing on a vine. When you come off the vine, you'll end up on a platform. In normal mode, there are 2 enemies here, and a chao. Note the crate on the right side. Bust the crate open and drop down. You should find the Air Shoes here.
  • Required For: Nothing. White Jungle is slightly tougher to complete without having this item, and significantly so in the final mission (as well as Final Chase's 3rd mission--though see Mystic Melody below), but it's entirely manageable.
  • Equivalent: Sonic's Light Shoes

Flame Ring
  • Purpose: Allows Shadow to break steel containers with a Somersault
  • Requirements: None (Air Shoes)
  • Location: Radical Highway. Simply run through the board until you come to an area with a stack of wooden containers. You should also see a "Road Closed Ahead" sign on the right side, along with a pulley. Simply jump up these wooden containers, or take the pulley up, and continue on the platform. You should bounce up onto another highway. Rather than run forward, turn back and you should see a spinning object, do the somersault underneath it. Then there is a chao, waiting to talk to you. Simply use the Air Shoes to go down the line of rings, and you should run into a spring and bounce up, landing right in front of the Flame Ring. Alternatively, the gap is small enough that jumping it without a light dash is comparatively simple.
  • Required For: Nothing. There's one part in the final mission of White Jungle where Shadow is faced with a blockade of metal boxes, but it's possible to squeeze around the sides. Nothing else even comes close to requiring this item.
  • Equivalent: Sonic gets an identical copy of this upgrade.

Ancient Light
  • Purpose: Allows Shadow to use Light Attack, enabling him to spin charge to gather energy then release on the enemies.
  • Requirements: None
  • Location: Sky Rail. This is located at the beginning of the stage. Simply follow along until you reach the area in which you find the first rocket. Don't take the rocket, rather jump across and do a homing attack on the nearby enemy. Now land and run to the chao box. Get near the edge, or just jump high up in the air and go over the edge. A line of enemies should appear, do the homing attack on them, you should finally hit a spring to bounce you up to the top where you will find the Ancient Light.
  • Required For: Nothing--it's purely a novelty item to make Shadow's life easier when dealing with enemies or overhead item boxes.
  • Equivalent: Sonic gets an identical copy of this upgrade.


Mystic Melody
  • Purpose: Allows you to open up new paths or shortcuts when played at the ancient shrines.
  • Requirements: None
  • Location: Final Chase. Follow this stage until you reach the area with the 3 holes you can jump in. After jumping into the center hole and coming out, you should end up near the huge area of vertical gravity tubes. Simply work your way from each tube to the next. You should end up near a tube that has an electric field around it. Jump to that tube and go to the top. From there, you should see the Mystic Melody.
  • Required For: Nothing. All of Shadow's lost Chao missions can be managed without this; the most challenging to go without, by a significant margin, is Final Chase.
  • Equivalent: Every character gets an identical copy of this upgrade.



Miles Tails Prower
Tails can receive four upgrades. Even though he has five stages, one of his stages does not have an upgrade.
 


Laser Blaster
  • Purpose: Upgrades the Homing Missile to have a larger attack pattern.
  • Requirements: Bazooka, which in turn demands the Booster.
  • Location: Prison Lane. Right next to the Goal Ring there is a room behind a set of bars. To open them, you must destroy the GUN Beetle that's hiding in the upper left-hand corner.
  • Required For: Nothing--it's purely a novelty item to make Tails' life easier when dealing with groups of enemies.
  • Equivalent: Eggman gets an identical copy of this upgrade.

Booster
  • Purpose: Allows the Cyclone to hover.
  • Requirements: None.
  • Location: Mission Street. After exiting the first tunnel, you should come out onto the highway. The road in front of you should drop due to an earthquake. Drop down onto it and run to the cross section. You should see a purple sign pointing to the right. Go left and the Booster should be waiting for you.
  • Required For: Completing Mission Street, as well as Hidden Base and Eternal Engine later on in the story.
  • Equivalent: Eggman's Jet Engine.

Mystic Melody
  • Purpose: Allows you to open up new paths or shortcuts when played at the ancient shrines.
  • Requirements: Bazooka
  • Location: Hidden Base. Near the beginning of the stage, there should be an area where you enter a building and go down a small hallway before coming outside. When you go through here, and come to the outside, you should continue forward a bit before turning left. When you do, there should be a checkpoint near there. After that, continue forward, and you should end up in an area full of blocks in the sand. Follow these along the left side until you reach a building you destroy, then use a pulley to get on top of. Continue on until you reach an area where there are bomb-throwing monkeys. Kill the monkeys and continue on. You should now be at a area with a lower platform below you. Go onto this lower platform and go to the end. There should be 4 metal containers blocking your way. Simply blow them away and enter. The Mystic Melody should be inside.
  • Required For: Nothing. All of Tails' lost Chao missions can be managed without this; the most challenging to go without, by far, is Eternal Engine.
  • Equivalent: Every character gets an identical copy of this upgrade.


Bazooka
  • Purpose: Upgrades the Volcan Cannon so that it can destroy steel containers.
  • Requirements: Booster.
  • Location: Eternal Engine. Go through the board until you reach an area with a long bridge and a blue blob type enemy at the end of it. The best method here is to kill the enemy and destroy the bridge. This will drop you to a platform below. Here you should find a platform with a switch on it. Hit the switch and find one of the springs to launch you up. Land on the platform with a capsule on it and it should ascend to the top, allowing you to enter a doorway. Inside should be the Bazooka.
  • Required For: Nothing. There's a roadblock near the end of Eternal Engine that can't be torn down without this, but it can be circumvented along with most of the rest of the stage. Unless you're familiar with how to do this, though, you'll want the upgrade for that point.
  • Equivalent: Eggman's Large Cannon.
