Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble (known in Japan as Sonic & Tails 2) is a 2D side-scrolling platformer developed by Aspect and published by Sega for the Sega Game Gear (in November 1993).

The sequel to Sonic the Hedgehog Chaos, Triple Trouble pits Sonic and Tails against not only Dr. Robotnik, but both Knuckles the Echidna (who is duped by Robotnik into stealing the emeralds) and treasure hunter Nack the Weasel (named Fang the Sniper in the Japanese version, who sets out to take the emeralds for profit). Aspect would later make both a sequel (with both Sonic and Knuckles as protagonists) and a spin-off (an action-adventure platformer featuring Tails).

The game was included as a hidden mini-game in the 2003 game Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut and in the 2005 compilation Sonic Gems Collection. It was also digitally re-released for the Nintendo 3DS (via Virtual Console) on March 2012.
