The RF Unit (RF ユニット) for the Sega Mega Drive 2 is the official method of connecting a Mega Drive to a television via RF standards. Connector types differ between countries so the units are slightly different per region, but they function in much the same way. These style of "automatic" RF Units were not released for the original model Mega Drive, which instead received very different RF adapters depending on the region.

In most of the world, RF Units were distributed with Mega Drive 2 consoles, although Japan received the Stereo Audio Video Cable as the standard way of communicating to a television instead.
