Team Rose makes an appearance in Sonic Heroes 2. In this game, it contains Amy Rose, Blaze, Cream and Vanilla. It habits Gimmick Mountain Zone. The storyline begins with an extended prologue, in which Dr. Eggman smashes his Egg-O-Matic into the side of Gimmick Mountain Zone, causing a hole to be blown into the side of it. After a long while, Eggman Nega, Metal Sonic 3.0 and Chaos Emerl find him, fish him out of there and bolt, leaving the four of them heavily exposed. As this scene is done 'in Rose-eye view', what you see is the scene fading to white, and a scene fading into the whiteness, zeroing it. Here, they discuss what's going to be done about it; firstly, they decide to see Tails to see what he can do about the damage. Action stage Mystic Ruins North is played.
They then arrive at Underground Zone. When they get there, to their surprise, they see only Tails and Cosmo; after an extended mother's meeting about where the other two are, they come straight down - leaving the Underground unattended.
When they arrive back at Gimmick Mountain Zone, they are in for a shock; Team Dark and Team Badnik are busy fighting. Blaze manages to turf the two teams out, and eventually Team Rose show Tails and Cosmo the damage. While they examine, and fix, the damage done to the mountain by Dr. Eggman, they decide to explore how Team Dark and Team Badnik were able to trespass the mountain. Action stages Scrambled Egg Zone and Crystal Egg Zone are played.
Once there, Blaze blows her top. She is not very happy about effectively her premises being built into and even less so about the manner in which her premises were built into. Before she has a chance to detonate, Tails and Cosmo hands her a verbal chill pill by arriving and informing them that their hideout has been repaired. The cutscene skips into where Tails and Cosmo say goodbye to Team Rose, and then they discuss their next move. In the middle of discussion, Team Sonic shows up and the two teams shoot the breeze for a while, with the exception of Sonic and Amy, who have their requisite awkward conversation where Amy tries to flirt and Sonic takes ever further steps away from Amy.
After a while, Team Sonic abscond and Vanilla, jealous that Amy gets to see her 'boyfriend' and she doesn't, encourages the team to visit Station Square. Action stages Marble Garden Zone, and Mystic Ruins South and Metropolis are played. Before they can get into the apartment where Team Archaic are located, they hear something come up behind them; it is them running away. Here, a race ensues between Team Rose and Team Archaic; the course is essentially an on-foot version of Radical City similar in vein to, well, the original Radical City course.
At the end, they lose track of Team Archaic. Vanilla is upset by this and so Cream suggests that they visit the Chao garden. The Chao garden is in Metropolis and so no additional stages need to be played. At this point, the Chao garden is unlocked; all characters of all teams that have at that point been unlocked, are available to play within the Chao garden and are unlocked immediately after each team has been 'started'.
After an extended mothers' meeting - Cheese with his pals, and Team Rose with Team Rose, everything goes dark. In a sequence similar to Amy Rose's first scene in Sonic Adventure, suddenly the Sun is cut off. Unconventionally for Eggman, he doesn't come out and boast about it; he needn't, since merely the sight of the Egg Carrier struck fear into the hearts of the team. They decide that the best thing to do is to visit Team Underground and ask if they can use the Tornado. They promptly decide against it; on their way out, they see some figures climbing Gimmick Mountain Zone and monkeying off it, so they decide to visit it to see what's going on. Action stage Spring Yard Zone is played.
Arriving at Gimmick Mountain, they see that there are minor sneaker prints going up the side of the mountain. Not particularly large prints, but chastisement-worthy prints nonetheless. Either way, the original intent was to visit the Underground Zone and so that is the next destination. At this point, no stage is played because Mystic Ruins North and Gimmick Mountain Zone are adjacent (just!) and the area with which Tails would fire up the Tornado is in Mystic Ruins North.
When they get there, however, they are in for a big disappointment. Not only has the Tornado been fired, but it appears to have been only recently as the 'launchpad' for the Tornado is still wide open. Vulnerable. Susceptible to attacks. Blaze absolutely explodes to the extent that Vanilla has to cover poor old Cream's ears. As Blaze runs out of breath, she is interrupted by the arrival of Team Underground, who promptly discuss what's going on. Perhaps to Blaze's satisfaction, we learn that the Tornado is now in bits where the Egg Carrier detonated. After a while, the two teams split up and this storyline ends with Team Rose discussing matters amongst themselves and going off to sleep.
- This pays homage to a scene in the 2005 film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory where Charlie's mother covers Charlie's ears so that the late Grandpa Joe can go off on a verbal assault.
