    TRIVIA
    Sonic Wings was released in March 1992 in Japan.

    This game is known outside Japan as "Aero Fighters".

    Red Rabbit from "Rabio Lepus" (also known as "Rabbit Punch") makes a cameo appearance in this game. Just check out Mao Mao's ending and you'll see it.

    In Kowful's and T.B.'s joint ending, you can see plenty of "Turbo Force" arcade machines.

    There are two last bosses in the game, but they appear randomly. The most common one is Pandora, a skull inside a rocket. The rarer one is Osaru, a huge monkey. You can get two bad endings if you let them escape.

    There are a total of 15 endings in the game. Eight are for the individual character endings, four are for the team endings, two for the bad endings and one when you beat the 2nd loop.

    The game forbids the initials 'SEX' on the high score table. If you try, it gets changed to Japanese characters.
