Green Hill Zone
Location- South Island
Description-
The Green Hill Zone is a lush green grassed Hilly area of South Island. It has a few sparse palm trees and large flowers located around it and water falls. It appears to be located between the beach and the centre jungle of the Left side arm of South Island (as seen in S1-GG/MS Map) and seamed to hint at race that once lived on the island via it's totem pole like objects. Like most of South island, it has a large amount of underground passage ways beneath the zone. The Zone was targeted by Robotnik a number of times. It was the first Level of the First Sonic game, in which Robotnik was waiting with a Wrecking ball to stop Sonic (S1MD). The next time, he was just in his own machine without the wrecking ball (S1GG/MS). When Sonic returned to South Island and found Tails kidnapped, Sonic had to travel though Green Hill Zone (Now called Green Hills zone) to save him, and found Robotnik had left a Pig-type Badnik in charge (S2GG/MS). Later, Robotnik appeared to have turned the whole level into the 'Mecha Green Hill Zone', replacing all the grass, trees and dirt with metal constructions (S&TGG/SCMS). However, the Level has since appeared in Sonic Drift (which features all S1MD levels), back in it's green form, so it seams only part of the Level was changed. It then appeared again in Sonic's last trip to South Island (GSGG/MS).

Triva-
~ Mecha Green Hill isn't confirmed as being the same Level but since both games are set on South Island, and they look a lot alike, it would appear they are meant to be the same.
~ Green Hills isn't confirmed as being the same Level but Since both games are set on South Island, and they look a lot alike, it would appear they are meant to be the same.
~ Japanese and western Manuals appear to say Sonic lives on South Island, and it would appear that he more lives in the Green Hill Zone.
