Sonic and the Secret Rings is the (so far) only Sonic the Hedgehog video game that features a Party Mode. Almost every boss in the game is either a demon, or a evil Genie. Like most Sonic the Hedgehog games, you fight the final boss as a character that has a super charged form, Darkspine Sonic to be exact in this game. But in it's sequel Sonic and the Black Knight you fight using Excali-Sonic, a Arthurian counterpart from Super-Sonic.
In Sonic and the Secret Rings you have two powers; Speed Break and Time Break, Speed Break allows you to run faster than you normally can, Time Break can slow down time (that's why they call it "Time Break," duh.).
Here's a few bosses.
Erazor Djinn, the boss before the final boss, if your having trouble pronouncing his first name it's pronounced Eraser (but with a z sound instead of a s sound), if your are having trouble saying his LAST name it's pronounced Jin.
*Sand Scorpion (Scorpion King in the Japanese version), you fight the same way you fight the Egg-Nega-Wisp from Sonic Colors, but Spin Dashing up it's tail instead of Spin Dashing up the Egg-Nega-Wisp's arms.
*Leech Crab Thing, to defeat it you must rip off all three of it's horns, when you do this it seem like it's bleeding purple blood.
*Alf-Layla-la-Layla, the final boss OMG! his quotes are below.
"I am.......the Creator.....the stories of this world are................Mine!!!"-before boss fight.
"HA HA HA! Do you think you stand a chance against me?"-once he starts slashing you.
"Rrragh!!! How can you have this much power!?"-after you hit him the first time.
"Ha! It will take a miracle for you to avoid my attacks!!!"-once he throws a energy ball at you.
"Rrrrrrryyyyyyyyaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"-when you defeat him. Every time you lay a hit on him 3/7 of the steam holes on his body will go out, when all seven of them go out he will fall to his doom.
*Ifrit Golom, a legless Golom that you fight in a pool of lava. It's weak spot is it's head, it is the ONLY boss that is mechanical.

*Darkspine Sonic, you play as him during the Final Boss Fight OMG! his quotes are below.
"If this is your world, then it's a world that I don't want any part of!"-before boss fight.
"HA! How's this for an introduction then?"-first time countering Alf-Layla-la-Layla's energy ball attack.
"Shahra!"-when Sharhra's voice gets in his head in middle of the fight.
"Your tale is finished, Erazor! Next time, try writing a better story!"- when he beats the boss. (Alf-Layla-la-Layla is Erazor but mutated when he used the remaining rings to battle Darkspine Sonic.)
"We've got to... stop him! Shahra...please! Lend me your... POWER!!" -End of cutscene before fight.
Here's some good guys. (non-playable)
