I am always amazed at the number of secrets that I have discovered in all of the classic 2D side-scrolling Sonic the Hedgehog games. Whether it would be lamp posts, big rings, extra lives, power-ups, shortcuts, you name it. There are just so many paths to take in each act and zone that makes every playthrough a new adventure.

A notable secret is in Sonic CD, where under the boss area in Act 3 of Palmtree Panic, there is a secret room reachable only with debug mode that contains two unused monitors of which are never seen elsewhere in the game: a clock, and an S monitor. They have no functionality whatsoever, but it is shown in the prototype release of Sonic CD that the clock monitor was supposed to stop time for a brief period, and the S monitor was supposed to give Sonic increased speed and an invincibility shield.
