Silver Sonic, referred to as Mecha Sonic in the Japanese manuals, is the first in what would become a series of robots designed by Dr. Robotnik based on Sonic's appearance. This design first appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (8-Bit).
 Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (16-Bit)
In this game Silver Sonic is the tenth boss in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (16-Bit) and is found near the start of the Death Egg Zone. You can see Dr. Robotnik watching the battle through a small hatch in the background. Silver Sonic is slightly larger that Sonic and is equipped with razor sharp spines which rotate like a saw blade, and rocket packs on his back give him his speed. He will either attack Sonic by dashing towards him, or by rolling into a ball. The only vulnerable point of Silver Sonic is the front of his head, but Sonic must be careful not to hit the spines at the back. This boss takes 6 hits to defeat.
 Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (8-Bit)Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (8-Bit) and is found in Act 3 of the Scrambled Egg Zone. He is largely similar in design to the 16-Bit Silver Sonic and has the same abilities, although when he rolls he does not have the razor sharp spines. Instead, if Sonic and Silver Sonic collide whilst rolling, they will bounce off of each other. The only time Silver Sonic can be damaged is when he is standing still briefly between attacks. This boss takes 8 hits to defeat.
If Sonic hasn't collected the previous 5 Chaos Emeralds then the game ends after defeating Silver Sonic. If he does however have all 5, Silver Sonic will drop the 6th Chaos Emerald and Sonic can continue onto the Crystal Egg Zone.
