How many post-credit scenes does Sonic the Hedgehog 2 have?
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has one post-credit scene this time, which takes place mid-credits after the cool end-credit sequence, and it sets up the third movie that is already in development (Idris Elba and Knuckles are also getting a Paramount Plus spinoff series).
I just got out of the theater and liked it. If you are a fan of Sonic or just want to sit or watch a movie and eat popcorn, check it out.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 post-credit scene spoilers
As a result of what went down in the first movie, the sequel reveals that the world set up a task force (GUN) to combat alien threats.
The end of the movie sees Sonic and the gang once again stop Dr. Robotnik's evil plans when the task force says they can't find Dr. Robotnik.
Commander Walters is walking with another federal agent when he is told about Robotnik and Walters says good riddance, then we see Stone is in disguise as an agent amid all the rubble.
The federal agent tells Walters that there is something else that they found when they were wiping Robotnik off their database -- a file found in their system that dates back over 50 years that contains coordinates to a secret research facility.
We're then shown that secret research facility where a container rises up and revealed is Shadow the Hedgehog with his eyes closed.
Walters says, "My, God, Project Shadow," and then Shadow the Hedgehog opens his eyes which sparkle with electricity.
Who is Shadow the Hedgehog?
In the video games, Shadow the Hedgehog debuted in the 2001 Sonic Adventure 2 video game and is an immortal, anthropomorphic black hedgehog created by Professor Gerald Robotnik, the grandfather of Doctor Eggman, aka Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey).
Shadow the Hedgehog is not evil, as the character is an anti-hero, "the anti-Sonic," who will do whatever it takes, so this leads him to confrontations with Sonic, where Shadow the Hedgehog is Sonic's biggest rival. While Sonic is fun and jokey, Shadow the Hedgehog is much more serious.
As Paramount (did you catch the mountain Easter Egg?) has already announced Sonic the Hedgehog 3, it's confirmed Shadow the Hedgehog will be in the movie, as director Jeff Fowler recently spoke to Polygon about developing Shadow the Hedgehog.
“I think what fans respond to about him is that he’s a bit more no-nonsense, and definitely very in contrast to the other characters,” said Fowler where the article suggests Sonic 3 could have a different tone than the first two movies and wouldn't have similar humor than what they did with Knuckles.
