Green Hill Zone was the first zone in the first games for SEGA Mega Drive and the following 8-Bit adaptations on the Master System and Game Gear. Its iconic status means it has been redesigned and refitted for certain games. Green Hill Zone is one of the many areas on the planet Mobius.
 Sonic the Hedgehog (16-Bit)
In Sonic the Hedgehog (16-Bit), the Green Hill Zone is the first zone playable. It's a lush, grassy landscape, with waterfalls and bright blue skies. The iconic music was composed by Japanese pop group DREAMS COME TRUE.

 Boss Fight
- Egg Mobile (Wrecking Ball) - Full Article
This Dr. Robotnik boss remains one of the most famous boss fights in video game history. It is one of the easiest bosses in the game; Dr. Robotnik will swing his checkered wrecking ball back and forth, trying to hurt you with it. The boss requires 8 hits to be destroyed.
 Sonic the Hedgehog (8-Bit)Chaos Emerald can also be found in act 2. There is also a shorter 3rd act which leads to the first boss.
 Boss Fight
- Egg Mobile (Unarmed) - Full Article
To really ease players into the game, the first boss in this version of the game is incredibly simple and easy to defeat, even more so than the 16-Bit version. Dr. Robotnik has not even attached a weapon to the Egg Mobile.
 Other Appearances
 Sonic DriftSonic the Hedgehog (16-Bit) appear as race tracks in Sonic Drift. Whilst the race tracks themselves are largely sparse, the background in the distance and the map above the track screen shows more clearly which zone the track is based on.
 Sonic 2 Beta
Green Hill Zone "appears" in both betas on Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (16-Bit). In the Nick Arcade beta, the level is present; however its collision data is corrupted. The Simon Wai beta also shows a Green Hill Zone - which is actually Emerald Hill Zone.
 Sonic Adventure 2
The level appears in Sonic Adventure 2 as a bonus for completing the game with all 180 emblems.
 Super Smash Bros. BrawlSonic appear on the Wii game Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Green Hill Zone also appears as a stage. Starposts appear which can be used as a weapon, and the middle section of the stage will eventually cave in, in a manner similar to the breakable walls in the original zone. The music used on GHZ will also play on this stage, alongside other classic Sonic songs from the series. Some Sonic characters, such as Tails and Knuckles, can be seen running through the loop in the background.
To unlock the stage, unlock Sonic. This can be achieved in two ways; completing the Subspace Emissary or by completing Classic mode 10 times.
