Shadow the Hedgehog

Prison Island returns as a level in Shadow the Hedgehog, proving that the entire island was not destroyed in Sonic Adventure 2 as it looked.

Sonic X

In the anime series Sonic X, Prison Island's appearance mirrors its Sonic Adventure 2 appearance, with some minor changes. It is shown to be the prison where Gerald was sent, and is declared to be the jail where all the worst criminals go. In fact, it is said that Sonic was sent to the very cell Gerald had been in, which had strange equations covering the walls and floors (this never was explained in SA2 when the player sees Sonic's cell, but the very same equations are scribbled inside it). When it was destroyed, it was shown that the GUN people on the island fled via helicopters; this was also not shown in-game.
