Thing type 312, Special Stage Token, is a type of Thing that allows the player to enter a Special Stage when collected. After finishing a level, the player gets as many chances in the Special Stages as the number of Special Stage Tokens they collected in that level. Most stages have more than one Special Stage Token, so if several are collected, the player can go to the Special Stages several times. If the player already has all seven Chaos Emeralds, they will receive 50 rings upon collecting this item.

The Special Stage Token's sprite is a composite of several sprites. The orb is composed of TOKEA0, while within the orb is an animation of each of the seven emeralds: EMMYA0, EMMYB0, EMMYC0, EMMYD0, EMMYE0, EMMYF0, and EMMYG0.

Giving a Special Stage Token the Ambush flag will make it float 24 fracunits above the ground. All Special Stage Tokens that are not already floating above the ground due to Z offsets should have this flag because items that do not float are difficult to collect and look as if they were stuck in the floor. The flag stacks on top of the Thing's regular height, allowing Special Stage Tokens to be a total of 4119 fracunits above the ground at maximum.

If a Special Stage Token is placed inside a Mario block, it must be given the Special flag to work properly.
