But I do belong here - Chapter 3 - Imanepilepticfreak - Sonic the Hedgehog (2024)

Chapter Text

It was a stormy night and the Egg Carrier was approaching Angel Island and Knuckles was sitting at the Master Emerald shrine, deep in thought as his eyes were closed.

“As far back as I can remember, I've been living here, on this dark island... Always guarding the Master Emerald from anything that can harm it. I don't know why I was given this job... Why it was my fate... Destined to be here...forever!” he said then heard a sudden crash. “What the...?” he said and turned around to find a something near the Master Emerald. “What's going on here? Oh no!” he said and saw Master Emerald had been destroyed. “Something has happened to the Master Emerald!” he said then turned his attention back to the creature. “Huh? Who are you? Did you do this? Ohhh, I'll get you for this!”

Then he tried to attack it but it leapt out of the way and crashed onto him.

“Ooomph!” he said and fell off of the shrine. “Ugh agh! Hey, no fair!" he said and ran back up the shrine but it dissolved as a puddle and left. “Wait! What's happening to you? Come back here! Wow! That was incredible! I've never seen anything like it!” he said and noticed Angel Island starting to shake. “Oh no! It's starting to happen. Without the Master Emerald's power, this whole island will fall into the ocean!”

Soon, Angel Island fell into the ocean, right next to the Mystic Ruins.

Meanwhile it was night and Big was fast asleep in his shack in the jungle area of the Mystic Ruins when there was an explosion nearby, waking up Froggy, who went to check. He came across a puddle of Chaos. The puddle suddenly lunged for him and attacked him. On his bed, Big started to stir and wake up.

"Huh... er... wha? Froggy, is that you? You're lookin' kinda weird, good buddy." he said and looked at Froggy's tail. "What's up with the tail?" he asked and Froggy swallowed Big's yellow Chaos Emerald. "Hey, wait a minute! You swallowed my lucky charm." he said and Froggy ran off. "Come back here... What's wrong with you? Something's not right. We've always been Friends... for years." he said and went after him. "Froggy! Wait up! Oh dear!"

Meanwhile in Station Square citizens mingled down the sidewalks on evening strolls. Above them, a helicopter flew low between the buildings heading for something. A red orb of light appeared to chased after it. Shortly thereafter, Sonic was seen bouncing back and forth off the sides of the buildings before leaping onto the roof of one to get a good look at Station Square's nighttime skyline.

"Ah, yeah! This is happenin'!" she said.

Suddenly hearing sirens, she looked down to see four police cars rushing to an emergency with screeching tires. She jumped down just in time to see them disappear around the corner.

"What's up?" she said and Spin Dashed towards the commotion.

The police cars had formed a perimeter in front of a large building. Two helicopters hover overhead with their searchlights on. Chaos 0 fell into Station Square, landing on the roof over the entrance of the building and just standing there. Many police officers surrounded it.

"You are completely surrounded! Surrender yourself!" an officer said and they aimed their guns at Chaos 0 and then it jumped closer to them, landing on the ground in front of them. "Lock on target, men! Ready?... FIRE!"

The police fired at Chaos 0, but the bullets simply dropped to the ground after colliding with Chaos, having no effect on the creature. It let off a low growl.

"Oh, no! Our weapons are useless! Retreat! All personnel, fall back!" the officer said.

Most of the officers retreated to safety as the one giving the command fired a few more rounds at Chaos 0 to cover their escape. Then Sonic arrived and jumped onto police car.

"Ah yeah! This could be fun!" Sonic said and jumped towards Chaos 0.

After the fight she was chasing after Chaos who formed into a puddle and started heading for a drain.

"Come on, ya big drip! Where ya goin'?" she said as Chaos fell into the drain and escaped.

She looked down at where Chaos 0 fled as the police cars continued to flash their red and blue lights and the helicopters continued to hover overhead. Eggman was watching her from a distant building.

"You know nothing, fool! It's Chaos! The God of Destruction. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!" Eggman said.

Later Knuckles was in Station Square, presumably sometime after Angel Island descended into the ocean.

“It's up to me to find the missing pieces of the Master Emerald. It won't be easy. Pieces flew off everywhere. Guess I'd better start looking anywhere I can.” he said.

In the skies over Station Square, Tails was flying in a plane.

"Everything's working great! All systems go... Full steam ahead!" he said then the plane started to shake. "Uh oh! What's this?" he said and the engine started sputtering and gave out, soon belching black smoke. "Nooooooooo!" he said and it started to fly around awkwardly. "Aaaaggg...! I'm outta control! Mayday! Mayday! Goin' down!" he said went through Station Square. "Aaaaggg...! Look out below!"

Meanwhile Sonic was relaxing at the Station Square hotel pool.

"Huh?" she said and saw Tails flying in his bi-plane going out of control. "What? Tails? Watch out! You're gonna crash! Ahhh!" she said and Tails crashed into Emerald Coast. "Tails... what am I gonna do with you?" she said, shrugged and jumped over the pool as they headed towards the entrance to Emerald Coast.

A few minutes later they were walking back to the pool with Tails.

"Hey Sonic. Long time no see, huh?" Tails said.

"I'm just glad you're okay. What happened anyway? You're too good of a pilot to just crash like that." Sonic said.

"That was a test run using a new prototype propulsion system. It's got a few bugs to iron out."

"Why not just use my plane, the Tornado?"

"Thanks, but you gotta check out my newest power supply! Ta dahhh!" He said and took out a Chaos Emerald.

"WHOA! A Chaos Emerald!"

"Yep! I just happened to find one of the 7 Emeralds during one of my test flights. This thing has unlimited powers, ya know... So I figured, why not use it to power my plane. Super charged! You gotta come over my workshop, Sonic! I've got something I've gotta show you! It's in the Mystic Ruins. The fastest way is by train. Let's go!"

Later Sonic and Tails arrived at the plateau below Tails' workshop on the nearby cliff, but were stopped by a voice.

"Ha ha ha ha! If it isn't Sonic!" Eggman said and descended in the Egg Mobile to confront them.

"Look! It's a giant talking egg!" Sonic said.

"Silence! I am Dr. Eggman, the greatest scientific genius in the world!"

"Whatever you say, Eggman!"

"Enough! I've got big plans and now I'm gonna put them to work!"

"You're always up to no good. Now what d'ya want?" Tails said and Eggman raised the Egg Mobile a little higher into the air.

"I want all the Chaos Emeralds. Better not interfere! Or else!"

"Or else what, ya big loser?" Sonic asked.

"Or else I'll take them from you by force... the hard way!" Eggman said and retreated to the cliff and sunk below it.

When he resurfaced, he had turned his Egg Mobile into the Egg Hornet and flew it back over to them, ready for a fight.

After the fight Eggman's Egg Mobile fell to the ground, defeated.

"Well, that wasn't so hard!" Sonic said.

"AHA!" Eggman said and took the Chaos Emerald from Tails, catching them bysurprise.

"Oh, no!"

"Come on Chaos, time to eat!"

"Chaos?" she said and Chaos appeared beside her. "Oh no, isn't that the same monster I saw the other day…"

Eggman gave Chaos the Chaos Emerald and he grew bigger, becoming Chaos 1.

"Ooooh, yes! It's just as the stone tablets predicted. Ha ha ha ha ha! His strength increases every time I feed him a Chaos Emerald! With all 7 Emeralds in him, he'll be invincible! And work for me! Together, we'll destroy Station Square! And on its ruins, I will build Robotnikland, the ultimate city! Where I will rule it all! Come on Chaos! Let's find another Emerald, shall we?" Eggman said and transported away, taking Chaos 1 with him.

"Sonic! We can't let him get away with this. Can we?" Tails said.

"No way Tails!" Sonic said.

"Without more Emeralds, the monster can't transform, so... It's up to us to find those Emeralds before Eggman does, huh?"

"As always."

Later Big was in Station Square outside the train station as he started looking for Froggy.

"Yoohoo! Froggy! Come out, come out wherever you are! Oh man, where could my Pollywog Pal be, anyway?" he said.

Later he was at City Hall and spotted Froggy as he headed for the open manhole under a parked car.

"Froggy! There you are! Wait, don't run away! What cha' doin' under that car? What's wrong?" Big said.

Meanwhile Knuckles had just finished finding the Emerald Shards in Casinopolis when a red orb suddenly started to move around him; then, he was taken back in time.

Meanwhile Sonic and Tails walked out of Casinopolis and Eggman ambushed them.

"Hey!" Sonic said and they dodged his charge in the Egg Mobile, but the Chaos Emerald fell to the ground. "Oh no! The Chaos Emerald!"

"Oh, no you don't!" he said and emitted a purple gas towards them.

"Aw Geesh!"

Eggman flew away with the Chaos Emerald and laughed.

"Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!"

"E-gg-ma-n--."

Then the screen flashed white. Sonic and Tails were unconscious before regaining their senses. It was the following morning after Eggman ambushed them last night.

Meanwhile.

“Where in the world am I?” Knuckles said and looked around. “I don't remember being here before. But something about it is familiar. Hmmmm... This is very strange.”

After walking around, he spotted two Echidnas named Tikal and Pachacamac talking.

“Father! Please don't!” Tikal said,

“Tikal, the 7 Emeralds are essential to our survival. It is for the good of all our people.” Pachacamac said.

“How can I make you understand? Attacking other countries, stealing and killing...can't be the right path to peace. No one has the right to take their holy grounds. I beg you father!”

Then light engulfed around Knuckles and he was taken back to Station Square just outside Casinopolis

“Uhh! Now where am I?” he said and looked around. “Back in Station Square, I see. What's going on around here anyway?” he said, headed into the hotel and spotted Eggman heading toward the elevator. “Hey, it's Dr. Eggman!” he said and noticed Eggman holding something shiny. “What's he got there? It's gotta be a part of the Master Emerald! Hold on! Come back here!” he said and chased him into the elevator ending up in a restaurant area. “Eggman! Give me back the Master Emerald!”

“Knu... Knuckles! Uhh, this isn't what you're after!” Eggman said and showed him his Chaos Emerald.

“Huh, you're right!”

“That's okay, though. I could use you as a guinea pig to test it. Chaos! Chaos!”

The creature from earlier appeared and was different in appearance from before, having become Chaos 1 since Knuckles last saw it.

“Chaos? It's that creature again! The same one I saw on my island. He was there when the Master Emerald was shattered, I'm sure of it. He saved me the trouble of looking for him. Now I'll get him good!” Knuckles said.

Eggman tossed his Chaos Emerald into Chaos and Chaos grew in size becoming Chaos 2.

“Ha ha ha ha ha! Way to go, Chaos!” Eggman said.

“Hah! Changing shape won't scare me!” Knuckles said and Chaos 2 roared. “Fine! Give it your best shot!”

After the fight Chaos reverted back to a puddle.

“Bah! So what if you won this time. You have yet to see true powers of Chaos!” Eggman said.

“Yeah yeah, that still doesn't faze me, you hear?” Knuckles said.

“I know something that might. It's about Sonic.”

“What? What about Sonic?”

“She's after the pieces of the Master Emerald, too!”

“What do you mean?” Knuckles asked and Eggman started to walk off but turned back around.

“You're not the only one on a wild goose chase, idiot! Why should I ruin your surprise? Ha ha ha ha ha ha...” Eggman said and left.

“I wonder what he meant by that? I'd better find Sonic.” Knuckles said after walking a few steps.

Later he was at Mystic Ruins.

“I wonder why Sonic is after the Master Emerald? I'd better work fast and get to the bottom of this.” Knuckles said.

It was now morning and they had just woken up.

"Ugh.. Sonic... What happened to the Chaos Emerald?" Tails asked.

"Aahh... I guess Eggman got one of 'em, but the other one's safe. That guy must be desperate." Sonic said.

"That means his two to our one, and that's not good! Come on Sonic, we need to get busy!" Tails said.

Later he was at Mystic Ruins.

“I wonder why Sonic is after the Master Emerald? I'd better work fast and get to the bottom of this.” Knuckles said.

After clearing through Red Mountain Knuckles saw Sonic and Tails and noticed Sonic was holding something.

“There's Sonic! Eggman was right. What's that in her hand? It looks like a piece of the Master Emerald! She has no right to have that!” he said.

“Hey, Knuckles!” Sonic said and Knuckles tried to attack her but she dodged. “Woah! What do you think you're doing?”

“All right! Put 'em up! Hand over the Emerald now!”

“That's not gonna happen buddy!”

Knuckles and Sonic charged at each other and the collision causing Sonic to drop her two Chaos Emeralds.

“Ah geeze! Oh no! The Chaos Emeralds...!” she said.

Then Eggman emitted a shining cyan light underneath the Egg Mobile, picking up the Chaos Emeralds and holding them out in front of him laughing.

“Eggman! What's he doing here?” Knuckles asked and Eggman took both Emeralds.

“Ha! That's all there is to it. You guys are too easy!” Eggman said and Knuckles noticed the green Emerald isn't a piece of the Master Emerald.

“That's a Chaos Emerald!”

“First come, first served, they say. And you served me too well for your own good! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!”

“You can't get away with this!” Sonic said and turned to Knuckles. “Knuckles, did you let him trick you again?”

“Like, you weren't?” Knuckles said.

“Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha... I've got 4 Emeralds now. Here, Chaos!” Eggman said and Chaos’ second form appeared. “Come here, my hungry pet!” he said and threw the Chaos Emeralds into Chaos turning it to Chaos 4.

"Ah! He transformed again!" Tails said.

"Man, no one ever cuts us any slack!" Sonic said.

Suddenly a large flying fortress appeared in the sky above Mystic Ruins.

"Behold my floating masterpiece, the Egg Carrier! But it pales in comparison to the power of Chaos! Adieu... Until we meet again, my friends... Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!" Eggman said.

Then a bright cyan light shone on him and his Egg Mobile, lifting him towards the Egg Carrier. The Egg Carrier then flew away.

"Hey, we can't let him get away! Let's get to my workshop and we'll take the Tornado!" Tails said.

"Yeah!" Sonic said.

"You guys go! I have some unfinished business to take care of." Knuckles said.

"No problem, Knuckles. We'll take care of everything here!" Sonic said and he left.

"Come on, let's get going!" Tails said and they went to the workshop and got the Tornado.

Sure enough they were at the Workshop.

"Sonic, wait here for a second....." Tails said and headed inside.

Sonic waited impatiently for a few seconds before approaching the cliff, when a sudden rubble caught him off-guard. She shrugged it off before the palm trees lowered and the runway appeared. Tails came out with the Tornado ready for launch.

"Sonic, hop in!" he said and she jumped on the wings. "Let's go!" he said and the Tornado took off and pursued the Egg Carrier.

Meanwhile after recovering the Emerald Shard in Lost World, the same red light from earlier surrounded Knuckles and he was taken back in time again.

He was at the Master Emerald Shrine of the past.

"Where am I? This is very strange." he said then moved on forward to find Tikal talking to the Master Emerald.

"I beg of you. Hear me now. My father is coming here soon. And I fear what may happen. You must take everyone away from here! Oh please!" Tikal said and waited a brief moment. "So, are you saying you can't leave this place? I understand... Let me talk to my father again! There must be a better way to do this." she said and turned around to find some Chao. "Don't worry, my friends. I won't let you down. I must do something... quickly." she said and ran off.

Then Knuckles was taken back to the present to the Master Emerald shrine.

Meanwhile Sonic fell from the Tornado and landed on a beach with her head buried into the sand, just outside Emerald Coast back at the hotel in Station Square.

"Tails? ...Tails?" she said, stood and spotted a random girl. "You're not who I'm looking for. Oh, I wonder if he's okay?" she asked and the girl watched her depart to look for Tails.

The Tornado got shot down after a massive blast fired from the Egg Carrier. In the Mystic Ruins, Tails was having a dream where he first encountered Sonic. Then he woke up in the main area of Mystic Ruins.

"Hmmm, wow... That dream brought back memories! I owe so much to Sonic. Sonic!" he said and got on his feet and looked around noticing Sonic wasn't around. "Hmmm, wonder where he went? Sure hope he's all right. The Tornado's not powerful enough. If I'm gonna get that Egg Carrier, I need to finish my prototype. It needs a Chaos Emerald to work! Looks like I'd better find one, fast!"

After searching around in the forest, Tails found a Chaos Emerald on the ground.

"Wow! There's a Chaos Emerald!" he said.

Suddenly, a frog ate the Chaos Emerald and hopped away.

"Hey, wait up!" he said and chased the frog into a cave. "Stop!"

Meanwhile Amy was walking down a sidewalk in Station Square with a bag of groceries in her hands.

Then she stopped.

"Gee, I'm bored. Every day's the same old thing... Same place, different day... I miss the good old days. Hangin' out with my hero, Sonic..." she said and thought back to a point when Sonic was carrying her and running away from Metal Sonic. "Chasing bad guys... And blowing them away- ha hah!" she said back in reality. "But now she's gone. And there's nothing left to do, but shop 'til I drop. There was always something fun to do with Sonic around. I really miss her." she said as a shadow cast over her. "Hey, what's going on here? Is there an eclipse today, or what? Nobody forecast a storm or anything." she said then turned around and dropped her groceries.

She looked to be horrified as the Egg Carrier flew over Station Square.

"Eggman? Can it be? What's that?" she said and soon a bird flew onto her face "Ahhh watch it, watch it. Ow! You should watch where you're going, buddy!" she said and looked at him. "Hey. Are you alright? You look kinda hurt."

Then there was a loud thud and she noticed that ZERO appeared and tried to attack her but misses.

"Huh... Uh oh." she said and ZERO turned around ready to attack her again. "Yikes! You almost ran me over you creep! Oh no! Let's get out of here!"

They hid in a shop while ZERO kept looking. It looked inside the shop, but saw nothing, then headed up the sidewalk and disappeared.

"That was one of Eggman's robots. Huh? He must've captured you, and somehow you got away, right? Don't worry. I'll protect you." she said and they came out of the shop. "I'll do my best to keep us both from harm, I'll stand by you all the way."

Later Sonic met Amy at the Casino area.

Suddenly she saw Sonic.

"Oh Sonic! Huh... My hero! So-nic!" she said and Sonic turned around. "Long time no see..."

"Uhh... Amy!" Sonic said.

"What's your problem?!" Amy asked and showed her the bird. "See, this little birdie's got in trouble. I think you should be her bodyguard a little while."

"What!?"

"Doesn't matter. We'll just tag along!"

"No way! Uh uh." Sonic said, walked back, turned and started running.

"Come on, don't run away. Ohhhhhhhh..." Amy said running after her.

Meanwhile after searching around in the forest, Tails found a Chaos Emerald on the ground.

"Wow! There's a Chaos Emerald!" he said when a frog ate the Chaos Emerald and hopped away. "Hey, wait up!" he said and chased the frog into a cave. "Stop!"

Back with Amy and Sonic Amy ran to Sonic, who was in front of the entrance to Twinkle Park.

"Wait up, Sonic! Not fair! I can't run as fast as you!" Amy said and they noticed ZERO. "Ahhh! Look, Eggman's robot's on the loose!"

"Don't panic! I'll handle that bag of bolts!" Sonic said.

Soon she was finally done.

"There." she said.

"Ahhhhh!" Amy yelled and Sonic turned around to her.

"Now what's wrong?!" Sonic asked and saw Amy looking at the sign near the entrance "Huh?"

"Look! It says cute couples can get in free! What are we waiting for?" Amy said and got inside.

"Amy! Wai-wai-wai-wait! ...She's such a pain!" Sonic said and followed her.

Then Amy separated from Sonic and entered Twinkle Park by herself.

Meanwhile a red ball of light surrounded Tails and took him back into the past.

"Uh oh. I thought I was in the desert. I wonder where I am?" he said.

After getting the Rhythm Badge, Tails wondered around and found Tikal.

"The servers are the 7 Chaos Emeralds." Tikal said then turned around and saw Tails. "Hello there, friend. How are you?"

"Umm...what were you saying before?"

"Huh? It's something my grandmother taught me. I never to forget it. It goes like this... "The servers are the 7 Chaos. Chaos is power... Power enriched by the heart. The controller is the one that unifies the Chaos." But I'm still not sure what it all means. But the number 7...is the same as the number of Emeralds there are."

"Emeralds?"

"Forgive me, but I don't think we've met before... I'm Tikal... And you are?"

Before he could answer, Tails was taken back to the present and at the train station area of the Mystic Ruins holding Froggy.

Meanwhile Big was making his way through the area outside the train station in Mystic Ruins. He soon stopped when he saw Tails had captured Froggy.

"Oh no, he's got my little buddy!" he said, ran towards Tails and tripped. "Waaaaaaahhhhh! Ugh! Ugh!" he said and looked at Froggy. "Glad I found you!"

"Yiiikes!" Tails said, accidentally and confused let go of Froggy and he hopped away.

"Wait for me!" Big said chasing after Froggy.

"Weird! Now, where was I? Oh yeah! The Chaos Emerald... Perfect!" Tails said. "This will get my Tornado 2 up and rarin' to go!" he said holding the Chaos Emerald.

Later he was back to his workshop.

"The time has come at last. This new plane should work a lot better. I've ironed out most of the problems. So, here it goes! Emerald, do your stuff! Ready Sonic? Here I come!" he said and hopped in his new Tornado 2 and opened a door located down the cliff face from his workshop to prepare to launch it. "Tornado 2, clear for take off! Away we go!" he said the took off on his Tornado 2.

Meanwhile Sonic chased after Amy to look for her in Twinkle Park and emerged afterwards, unable to find her.

"Welcome to Twinkle Park!" PA System said.

"Oh shoot! I've lost Amy! I bet that robot hauled butt after her. I'd better catch her before it does." Sonic said.

Meanwhile Gamma woke up with the first thing he saw was Eggman.

"Excellent! All systems-full power!" Eggman said and Gamma looked around and then back at Eggman. "Look at me! I'm your brilliant creator, Dr. Robotnik! You're the second of my E-100 model machines. E-102! Code name: Gamma."

Gamma rotated his head one way and back the other before speaking.

"Gamma." he said.

"That's right! You will now obey only me!" Eggman said and walked off. "The shooting range is through this door. Your big brother, E-101 Beta, is there practicing. Enter, Gamma! You're not as advanced as Beta is, but you'll do fine." he said and Gamma entered the Final Egg shooting range.

After clearing through Final Egg, Gamma met with Eggman downstairs.

"Good job, Gamma! I didn't think you had what it takes!" Eggman said and left with Gamma following.

"Okay then, Gamma... Here's your test. If you want to stay on board, you must be able to pass it! So pay attention to what I say. The almighty Egg Carrier is a flying fortress that needs a good crew! Come forth, Beta!" Eggman said and Beta appeared behind Gamma. "I'd like you to meet your older brother E-101. Just call him Beta. I am pitting the two of you against each other, and the winner serves on my ship. I put my bets on Beta, but I owe you at least a fair chance."

Following the one-on-one fight between Beta and Gamma, Beta walked over to stand with Eggman as he congratulated Gamma on winning the bout and earning a place on the Egg Carrier

"Ho Ho ho! You surprised me, Gamma! I had a funny feeling there was more to you than meets the eye. I hereby grant Gamma permission to serve on board the Egg Carrier." Eggman said and Beta stood beside him.

"What? So you want to come along with us, eh?" he asked and Beta moved in front of him.

"Okay, okay... We could use a spare set of parts, I guess. You have special permission." Eggman said, departed as Gamma walked up next to Beta and both watched him depart.

Soon, the Egg Carrier lifted off into the skies.

A few minutes later they were inside of the Egg Carrier, Eggman was prepared to make an announcement to Gamma and three other E-series robots: E-103 Delta, E-104 Epsilon, and E-105 Zeta.

"Ah, hah... Testing, 1, 2, 3... Ahem... You, the elite Egg Carrier crew, are here today... To hear a very special announcement." he said and an image of Froggy was shown on the screen behind him. "Behold! It's a tailed frog! Very unique! This frog is absolutely vital to my plans! I command you to locate this frog immediately. You hear me? I don't care what it takes to get it. Just bring it to me!" he said and they agreed to this. "We haven't got time to waste. So come to attention!" he said and they headed out to find the frog.

Meanwhile Amy walked out of the entrance to Twinkle Park, looked around and walked again.

"Whew! I'm glad we finally lost that robot! Sonic must've gotten lost, too!" she said.

A giant shadow covered her and she turned around to find out it was ZERO, right behind her.

"Ahhhhh!" she said running away holding the bird.

ZERO grabbed her and the bird with his right hand and headed to the train station.

"Hey, watch it bolt brain, let us down! Let us go!" Amy said.

Meanwhile Sonic passed through Speed Highway, but found no sign of Amy until he checked the area outside Casinopolis.

"Amy! Oh man, where can she be?" Sonic said.

"Aaaagh! Sonic! Help!" Amy said and Sonic saw her being captured by ZERO, heading down the train tracks towards the Mystic Ruins.

"I'll cut 'em off at the Mystic Ruins!"

Meanwhile Big had finally caught Froggy and was taking him home from Emerald Coast when Gamma suddenly ran in and snatched Froggy right out of his hands.

"Froggy?” Big said then noticed that Froggy was being captured by Gamma. “Uh oh! NO, hold on there! Come back, please! Give me my friend back! I'm beggin' ya, please!"

Meanwhile Gamma had successfully found Froggy but was taken back in time to the Altar of the Emeralds.

"Must determine location. Accessing data." he said and scanned the area. "No data found. Location unknown. This presents a problem."

Meanwhile after heading closer to the altar, Knuckles found a bunch of Chao singing. Then he got in closer but Tikal suddenly spoke up.

"No! Don't go any closer!" she said and looked at him for a bit and didn't see him as a threat. "I'm sorry. I see you must not be one of them, huh?" she said and walked beside him. "Did you notice the presence guarding these children? He's a very loving and gentle creature. These little creatures are too vulnerable without it's protection. This protection allows them to continue singing in peace. Even I was surprised the first time I saw them. Now my father is trying to take their sacred home. It seems his heart is closed off to us all. My true hope is that one day, we'll understand each other."

Then he was taken back to the present.

"What... I'm back in front of the altar! This is beginning to blow my mind! Wait a minute... I remember... The broken pieces of the Master Emerald... I have to restore them to where they belong." he said then headed up the shrine and placed the shards of the Master Emerald onto the spot where they reunite, almost completing it. "It's still incomplete! I need to find the remaining pieces. Wherever they are." he said looked into the Master Emerald and noticed the Egg Carrier was shown. "Hey look! It's Eggman's flying fortress. That's where the rest of the pieces must be." he said and left the shrine. "But I don't know where that ship is."

Suddenly, a robot leapt from the mountains and left the area.

"Hey! Isn't that one of Eggman's robots? I know... I'll follow it back to Eggman's base! Here I come, Eggman!" he said and followed the robot to the entrance of Eggman's base deep within Mystic Ruins. "Hmmmm, just what I thought. Time to make a house call!"

Then the Egg Carrier took off.

Meanwhile ZERO was holding onto Amy.

"Let me go you hunka junk, I mean it!" Amy said.

"Hey there, bolt brain! You better give Amy to me, or I'll squash ya!" Sonic said and jumped down towards them then the sky turned dark. "Hey, what's happening here?" he said and the Egg Carrier was in the sky and sucked ZERO and Amy in by a green tube. "Stop!"

"Sonic! Help me!"

"Shoot, I've lost her again!" she said and the Egg Carrier took off.

Meanwhile Gamma was suddenly taken back onto the Egg Carrier holding Froggy and the others were arguing over who has the correct frog. All of them lined up and presented their frogs to Eggman.

"This frog's the only one!" Delta said.

"No, here's the real one!" Zeta said.

"My frog is the right one!" Epsilon said.

"Argggh! DUMMIES, DUMMIES, DUMMIES, DUMMIES!" Eggman said walking down the list of robots. "None of you got the right one! We must find the one with Chaos' tail! That same frog has also swallowed a Chaos Emerald! Huh?" he said and turned to Gamma and noticed he was holding the correct frog. "Ah, there it is! Right there! I'm proud of you, Gamma! I knew you'd be of use to me! All you worthless hunks of junk, be gone!" he said and the others were teleported out of the Egg Carrier. "You will get a new assignment! This one's easy! Go to the room through that last door." he said and Gamma turned toward the door. "Once there, you'll find a girl and a bird. Just give me that bird. Now go!"

Gamma walked off but was still trying to decide which door was the correct one.

"Is this the one?" he said and walked on the spinning floor that lead him into a different room. Then he was parts of Beta on the floor and noticed Beta was on a machine, being upgraded. "Beta?" he said and walked out of the room. "... This is the wrong room."

Meanwhile Tails was at the Red Mountain where the Egg Carrier was.

"There you are, dead ahead! The Egg Carrier!" he said then spotted Sonic nearby. "There's Sonic! Sonnnic!"

"All right, Tails! Way to go! The plane's cool!" Sonic said and hopped onto the Tornado 2. "Now, what do you say we nail those guys?"

"You got it! Hang on!" he said and they flew toward the Egg Carrier once more.

Meanwhile Gamma headed through the correct room and found the cell containing Amy and the bird.

"Go away!" Amy said.

"Give me the bird." Gamma said.

"No way!"

"Resistance is futile: give me the bird!"

"I said NO!"

"Why not?"

"None of your business why not. I want to know why you want it."

"Data unavailable."

"You don't even know? I'd bet you be mean to him, you bully! Why not help us out instead? Don't you know how bad I feel?"

"Does not compute. Why try to save what is useless to you? Does not compute."

"I feel sorry for you! Eggman failed to give you feelings." she said and the bird flew out of her hands. "Wait a minute, birdie!"

Then the Bird flew in front of Gamma and he stared at him for a moment. Finally, Gamma turned away and walked over to the large trigger for the cell door.

"Get going!"

"Huh?" she said and he pressed the trigger and unlocked her cell. "Why are you letting us go?"

"It is dangerous here. Hurry. We'll be arriving at the Mystic Ruins base soon."

"So... You're not like those other robots, huh? You truly are a good person inside, aren't you? I guess we can be friends then... Take care, ok?" she said and left with Birdie.

Meanwhile the Tornado was closing up to the Egg Carrier.

"Alrighty, we're in!" Tails said.

"We gotta land on the Egg Carrier!" Sonic said.

"Whoops. Uh... I forgot something."

"What's that?"

"There's no landing gear on this mode."

"Whaaat?" she said and they were on the ground.

"Wow, this thing is really huge!" Sonic said.

"No time to gawk now. We need to find Amy!" Tails said.

"You're right! So, here we goooooo!"

Meanwhile.

"Don't get too many ideas, you fools! You haven't seen the power this vessel really has! Get a load of this!" Eggman said and the Egg Carrier changed shape.

"Ahhh, wow! It's changed shape. Did you see that?" Tails said.

"Tails!" Sonic said and scowled at him in annoyance before turning his attention back to Eggman. "Darn! This makes it harder for us to get to the bridge!"

"I hate it when he doesn't listen..." Tails said.

"Ha ha ha ha ha! I bet you weren't expecting this! The only way you can get to me is through the Sky Deck. I doubt if you can figure this one out! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!" Eggman said.

"Oh yeah! Well, I'll show YOU! Bring it on!" Sonic said.

Meanwhile Knuckles was on the deck.

"Now we'll see who's so easily tricked! I can sense the Emeralds are here somewhere!" he said and walked around for a bit. "Uh! What's going on?" he said and the Egg Carrier changed form. "Ugh! This thing's always changing." he said. "I sense the Master Emerald. It can't be far from here." he said after getting into the recently drained pool.

Meanwhile Big pursued Gamma all the way back to the Mystic Ruins and got aboard the Egg Carrier before it took off. He soon found himself in the main room inside the Egg Carrier.

"Froggy? This place doesn't look familiar to me at all..." he said and sniffed. "Hmm, smells like Froggy's around somewhere. Think I'll see what's behind this door!"

Meanwhile Amy was holding the balloon to escape Hot Shelter, when Tikal's light orb appeared in front of her and gasped as she was taken to the past.

"Huh?" Amy said and looked around. "What's this place." She said with a sad expression.

Later after clearing through Sky Deck, Sonic and Tails made it inside of the Egg Carrier.

"Is that it?" Sonic asked.

"It might be, let's check out the bridge!" Tails said landing on the ground.

Meanwhile Amy was in the altar, and saw Tikal and some Chao.

"You're the... Chao." Tikal said and the Chao fled as she tried to get closer. "Don't be afraid. You're safe with me." she said and one of the Chao approached her and she held it.

The water at the altar suddenly rippled and she gasped. Chaos started emerging from the water as Amy got back to the present.

Then Amy found herself standing by the Egg Carrier's pool.

"Gee, what was that? I wonder if I'm dreaming? Oh my! I need to get outta this place!" she said.

Meanwhile.

"The last missing piece! Alright! Now to restore the Master Emerald!" Knuckles said and the red light took him back into the past again.

Then he was back at the Master Emerald shrine at nighttime.

"Oh no! Not again." he said and noticed an ominous red glow in the distance. "What's the meaning of this?" he said, headed closer and noticed the shrine was on fire.

He noticed Tikal was on the ground and ran up to her.

"Hey, what happened here?" he asked.

"I couldn't...stop them. They came...and my father... I had no idea...how bad this would turn out! I'm shocked!" Tikal said then got up and the Master Emerald was shown.

"Look, it's the Emerald!" he said as Tikal left. "Wait!" he said and was taken back to the present.

Then he was back in the pool area.

"Is this a dream? It's more like a nightmare!" he said and started heading toward the deck.

Meanwhile Amy and the bird ran away, but stopped at hearing Eggman's voice.

"Where do you think you're going, Amy?" Eggman said and appeared in front of her.

"Eggman... No!" Amy said.

"You can't get away this easily!"

Amy got sad and saw Sonic and Tails.

"Sonic, help!" she said and Sonic and Tails got to Eggman.

"Too late, buddy!" Eggman said and grabbed the bird away from Amy's grip.

"Birdie!" she said and he released the bird since he had the Cyan Chaos Emerald.

"It's a Chaos Emerald!" Tails said.

"What?!"

"I don't need YOU when I've got this! Gamma!" Eggman said.

"At your service, sir!" Gamma said appearing behind Sonic and Tails.

"Dispose of these annoying pests! Give 'em all you got!"

"Aye Aye, sir! Will comply."

"I've got better things to do!" he said, left and Sonic ran at Gamma.

"Stop, Mr. Robot!" Amy said.

Gamma started short-circuiting and Sonic was about to give one final blow to him but Amy stepped in front of him.

"Stop it, Sonic!" Amy said and Sonic stopped.

"Amy! That's one of Eggman's clunkers. Outta my way!" Sonic said.

"No! He helped me before by letting me escape. This robot is different! You don't need to hurt him, okay?"

"Okay, I guess I'll let him go, then."

Suddenly the Egg Carrier started shaking.

"The Egg Carrier's losing altitude!" Tails said.

"We're fresh outta time! Take Amy and clear out, fast!"

"What about you?" Amy said.

"I'll nail that Eggman! Can't let him escape!" Sonic said and went after Eggman.

"I knew you would save me, Sonic. You're my hero!" Amy said. "Uhhh, you okay? It's dangerous here. Don't pay attention to Eggman anymore. Free yourself. Come on!" she said to Gamma.

"Why are you helping me?" Gamma asked.

"I said we'd be friends and I'm returning your favor. Even this birdie wants you to be free. Eggman's not the kind of person you should work for."

"Amy, come on! Let's get going!" Tails said.

"Until we meet again, Mr. Robot! Take care of yourself!" she said and held tight to Tails, and Gamma prepared to hover.

Meanwhile Big entered Hot Shelter and soon entered a central area surrounded by aquariums.

Then he saw Froggy in one of the aquariums.

"Aaaah! There's Froggy! Looks like he needs my help!" he said.

A few minutes later he freed Froggy and caught him once more before preparing to leave Hot Shelter.

"Yes! We're together again at last, heh?" he said then a Hintball zoomed around them. "Huh? That's strange!"

A few seconds later he was in the past.

"Where am I? Froggy?" he said.

"Wow! Is it alright for me to be here? So do you... Trust me? So these are the 7 Emeralds..." Tikal said then gasped. "! ? Could it be? The servers are... the 7 Chaos Emeralds... Unified by one that is the controller... The 7 Chaos... The controller itself... Could this be the Emerald that controls the 7 Chaos?"

Then he found himself back at the Egg Carrier, in the pool area.

"Froggy! I don't like the looks of this place!" he said.

Later on the Egg Carrier.

"If I'm to continue, I need to change this ship back to it's original shape! There must be a switch somewhere on the bridge! I've gotta find it, now!" Sonic said and located the bridge and found the switch.

Then the Egg Carrier changed shape.

"If something happens now... There's no point to my rescuin' you. I don't know who would bother to save us both. We better get going, buddy!" he said.

"Emergency alert has been cancelled! Resuming monorail operation." computer said.

Big headed out to the runway area of the Egg Carrier, only to encounter Chaos 4 floating over the central platform. Eggman soon appeared from above in the Egg Mobile to confront Big.

"So! I see you're trying to escape! I'm right on time. Chaos! Grab him. Get that frog! And don't forget the Chaos Emerald." Eggman said, Froggy released the Chaos Emerald it had swallowed earlier, and along with one that Eggman was holding, both flew to Chaos 4, who absorbed both and transformed again, emerging from a large puddle on the platform as it becomes Chaos 6. "All right! And now for the frog. The frog is possessed by your tail. Once you get your tail, you'll be complete and ultra strong." he said then Froggy jumped inside Chaos 6 and lost the tail, which reappeared as a large, scythe-like tail on Chaos 6.

Meanwhile.

"I finally found all of the missing Emerald pieces, but... I still can't figure out that creepy monster. Huh? What's that?" he said then suddenly was blinded by a bright light coming from the deck. "Woah..."

Meanwhile Sonic arrived right next to Big.

"Unbelievable! Look what happened! Chaos has transformed again." she said.

"Huh?" Big said.

"Hahaha!!! Uh oh! Gotta go!" Eggman said.

"Froggy! I'll save you... Don't worry pally."

"So he's your friend, eh?" Sonic said and Big nodded. "No sweat... I'll get him back! Watch me!"

"Careful Froggy! Don't worry. We'll get ya back!"

Chaos 6 growled, ready to stop Big from recovering Froggy.

Back with Sonic and Knuckles headed for the center area of the deck and noticed Sonic and Eggman confronting each other.

"Aarghh! Not again... I hate you!" Eggman said.

"Hey, Sonic!" Knuckles said heading toward Sonic.

"About time!" Sonic said.

"I will return!" Eggman said and flew away in his mobile.

"Eggman! Come back!" she said and ran after him.

"I'd better let Sonic handle it from here. She'll do okay. Now... I must return to Angel Island and the Master Emerald." Knuckles said and noticed Chaos was still around and in its sixth form. "No! It can't be! I guess he didn't get enough the first time! You can't stop me from restoring the Master Emerald!"

Back with Big.

"Huh... er... what? Hey, maybe we could use this? But I don't know the first thing about it. Oh well, I'll give it a try anyway." Big said.

After defeating Chaos 6.

“Yeah! You're finished! What's left now is to return the Master Emerald safely to my island.” Knuckles said.

Soon, the Egg Carrier was destroyed and Knuckles was back on Angel Island.

At Mystic Ruins Sonic fell down on the ground, but bounced back up.

"Aarrgh! I hate Eggman!" she said. "Where's this?" she said and saw the temple in Mystic Ruins moving. "Hmm?" she said and saw a light floating towards the temple. "That light! I think it's trying to show me something!"

Meanwhile Gamma was arriving in Mystic Ruins

"Dr. Robotnik... Enemy... Master registration... Deleted. E-Series... Friends... Must save..." Gamma said.

Meanwhile Knuckles used the last remaining pieces to restore the Master Emerald.

“This should do it! Perfect. All is well, now! The Master Emerald and the island have been restored.” he said and started to walk off as the Master Emerald glowed brightly and Angel Island was floating again. “I'll probably be on this floating island forever. Guarding the Master Emerald, again. I may not know the whole story behind this. But perhaps it's better that way. I'm at peace one more.”

Meanwhile after following the light inside the temple, Sonic saw a mural on the wall of the temple depicting Perfect Chaos.

"Whoa! What's this? A mural." Sonic said and was teleported by Tikal to the past. "What's this place? Where am I? This is really weird.” she said and saw an injured Chao lying on the ground.

"Why? Why did this have to happen? It's terrible! I must stop this now!" Tikal said, went to the Master Emerald and Sonic returned to the present, outside the temple.

Meanwhile Amy and Tails were at Station Square with the bird. When they got to the ground Tails left.

"I wonder what Sonic is doing... She's always rescuing me, it seems. I should be more independent." Amy said. "You know you sure surprised me... by having a Chaos Emerald with you. No wonder they were after you, my feathered friend. Hey! A pendant, wow!" she said to the bird and the pendant opened revealing a picture. "So, I'll help you find your family. Does Eggman have them captive now?" she said and the bird tweeted to her. "I bet he does! So, I'll help you find your family. I've come this far. I may as well go all the way! That Robot said Dr. Eggman's base is in the Mystic Ruins. So, what d'ya say we check it out?"

Meanwhile Tails was walking when he saw Eggman in his mobile crashing nearby and Tails started to walk in that direction after seeing off Amy and Birdie.

"That's Eggman! I wonder what happened to Sonic?" he said.

"I'm finished! Chaos was defeated, and now my Egg Carrier is ruined! No matter! I will destroy Station Square anyway!" Eggman said and flew back up and soon, out to sea, a large missile could be seen.

"If that missile is launched..."

"Ready? Fire!" Eggman said and the missile was launched but it didn't go off when it landed. "Aah! No! It was a dud! I can't believe this! Ah! I'll go and deal with this myself!" he said and flew off.

"Oh, no! I'd better get to that missile before he detonates it!" Tails said chasing after him. "I see it! I've gotta get it before Eggman. The fate of Station Square depends on me, huh... Sonic! I've changed a lot since I started hanging with Sonic... But I can't depend on her forever. I know I can do this by myself... Ok, Eggman! Bring it on!"

Back with Amy arriving at Eggman's base entrance in the Mystic Ruins.

"Hmmmm... I don't remember this bridge... Looks dangerously suspicious!" Amy said then looked at the bird and back to the bridge. "Wanna go?"

A few minutes later they were at Final Egg and Amy was ambushed by ZERO.

Amy gasped.

"Not you again!" she said.

After clearing through Speed Highway Tails and the people of Station Square looked over at Eggman.

"Oh, no! It's Robotnik!" a man said.

"So you beat me to the missile, you little pest! I'll make you all pay for this!" Eggman said, flew up and came down with his large mech known as the Egg Walker.

"Let's get outta here!" a woman said and screamed.

"You fool! Away! Before I make mincemeat out of you!"

"I'm not scared... I'm not scared! I can do this!" Tails said.

After Eggman was defeated the people cheered for Tails.

"Hey! I did it!" Tails said.

"You saved the day! You're the best!" a lady said.

"Heh! I did it all by myself!" he said and celebrated for a bit then flew off.

Meanwhile Gamma had returned from Red Mountain.

"E-103 Delta... E-104 Epsilon... Rescue mission accomplished. E-105 Zeta... E-101 Beta... Location unknown. Perhaps... aboard the Egg Carrier." Gamma said.

Back at Eggman's base.

"Whew! That was a close one! I saw no sign of your relatives, birdie!" Amy said and looked at the bird. "Ohhhhh! You escaped from the Egg Carrier! So maybe your family's still in there." she said. "Let's investigate. Wanna?"

Back with Sonic.

"What was that all about? I don't think I'm dreaming here." she said. "Hmm?" she said and saw Eggman going to his base. “Eggman!" she said. "What's he doing here? Oh never mind. This time we'll get him good!" she said and ran towards his base.

After he returned to the Egg Carrier.

"E-series data. Beginning search. ... Accessing data... Hot Shelter: location confirmed. Unlocking Hot Shelter, now." Gamma said.

On top of the Egg Carrier after boarding the monorail.

"E-105 Zeta rescue complete. Units remaining: Gamma... Beta..." Gamma said.

Gamma watched Beta Mk II flail about before collapsing to the deck. Then he went over to check to see if Beta was truly out for the count, but with its last ounces of energy, Beta recovered long enough to aim both of its cannons at Gamma and fire point-blank into him, critically wounding him, who staggered away as Beta finally exploded and released the bird trapped inside it. The bird flew over to look at him for a bit before he stumbled away. Then it turned to leave, but as it did, he saw a picture of the it, along with the one Amy had, and a pink bird, together, before finally succumbing to the damage it sustained and collapsing to the deck. The bird continued to fly away as Gamma exploded, but then stopped and turned around as the pink bird, released from him upon its destruction, flew up to join it.

Meanwhile Sonic followed Eggman into the base, with him waiting for her in his Egg Viper.

"Well, if it isn't my pal Sonic! I'm surprised you made it this far." Eggman said.

"Hold it right there, Eggman!" Sonic said and followed him into battle with the Egg Viper.

At the Egg Carrier, Amy spotted the grey bird and then the three of them flying together.

"Yeah, it's them!" she said.

Suddenly, something hit the blue bird.

"Gasp!" she said and ran to the hurt bird. "Oh no! Are you okay?" she said. "You idiot! How could you do this!" she said to ZERO. "Now you're gonna get it!" she said and swung her Piko Piko Hammer at the robot

After the fight she went to the blue bird.

"Please, wake up, birdie. Are you okay? Can you fly?" she asked and the bird woke up then flew but suddenly fell down.

Amy went to see it and the bird was healed.

"Whoa! You did it! Now you three can live in peace again!" Amy said and the three Flickies flew away. "I'm so happy! I'm going to try my best, too!"

The Chaos Emerald was in the Tornado 2 as the wrecked aircraft sat in the water next to Big's house in the Mystic Ruins and ended here.

Meanwhile Angel Island was falling to the ocean again and ended here.

Meanwhile Eggman was making his way through the jungle of Mystic Ruins in his Egg Mobile.

"Ooooh... I hate that Sonic! She always seems to get in my way! But I bet she can't foil my master plan." he said and noticed Chaos on the ground. "Chaos!" he said and Chaos then attacked him.

At Angel Island Knuckles was questioning himself.

"The Master Emerald is where it belongs. But Angel Island is still falling! This doesn't make any sense. Maybe... Those Chaos Emeralds... that I brought back with me... have something to do with what's happening. I'll take them to Sonic for her advice." he said then noticed Eggman lying on the ground. "Eggman!"

"This is terrible! Ch- Chaos is........" Eggman started but was cut off.

"Is what?" he asked then Chaos appeared and attacked him.

Meanwhile Sonic were relaxing by a tree.

"Yawn. Guess Eggman's learned his lesson... yep! And maybe I'll take another vacation somewhere." She said then Tails appeared.

"Son-ic!" he said.

"Hey there, Tails! Did you find the Tornado 2?"

"Never mind that. Get up and follow me. Angel Island is falling again!"

"Hey, no way! Who blew it this time?"

"I don't know, but we'd better hurry!"

Soon they arrived at Angel Island to see Knuckles and Eggman lying defeated on the ground near the Master Emerald's shrine.

"Sonic... uhhh, sorry!" Knuckles said.

"Knuckles! And Eggman? What happened here?" Sonic said.

"He stole my Chaos Emeralds! And Chaos is still alive!"

"What?!" she said and Eggman got back to his feet.

"Aaarrgh! He's not gonna get away with this!" Eggman said.

"Hey Eggman! Wait up!" Knuckles said and Eggman got back in the Egg Mobile and roared away. "Sonic... Chaos is a fearsome beast! If he gets that last Chaos Emerald, we're done for!"

"No need to explain, we'll get on it! Tails?" Sonic said.

"Right!" Tails said.

"Wha...?! Aw, Gee...!" she said and was sent to the past by Tikal. "This place... It looks familiar! It's not a dream, after all."

"Get out of my way!" Pachacamac said.

"No Way!" Tikal said.

"Did you hear what I said?"

"I won't obey!"

"We need those 7 Emeralds to give us total power! It's power for the people And... They are your people too, you know! We must get that Emerald!"

"Greed is our enemy! Once it starts, you will always want more! Please don't do this. I beg you!"

"Bah! I don't listen to the words of a child. Ready, men! Charge!"

"Father!"

Then the Altar of the Emeralds came under attack from the Knuckles Clan, who knocked Tikal to the ground and injured many Chao. Sensing what happened, Chaos became infuriated. The Chaos Emeralds circled the Master Emerald, then Chaos raised to confront Pachacamac and his soldiers as they reached the Master Emerald, causing them to recoil in fear.

"Aaaaagh! It's a monster!" Pachacamac said.

With a thunderous roar, Chaos unleashed its wrath on the Knuckles Clan and everything white out.

"Noooooooo!" Pachacamac said and Sonic headed over to Tikal.

"Hey, are you all right?" Sonic asked.

"Uh... I think so. Oh my gosh! No!... No!.... No!...." Tikal said.

"Wait up!"

Tikal went to the shrine and Sonic followed her.

"The 7 Emeralds are the servers. Chaos is power, enriched by the heart. The controller serves to unify the chaos. Uhh... The 7 Emeralds can change our thoughts into power. If this Emerald controls that power... Please, you must stop him!" she said.

Then Sonic returned to the present day.

"Sonic! Wake up!" Tails said.

"Ahhh... I was on a snooze cruise, I guess!" Sonic said.

"Good thing you're okay. You just sort of conked out, there. Knuckles left already. Come! We gotta go after the last Emerald!"

"?... Lead the way!"

"It should still be on board the Tornado 2!"

Sonic and Tails headed over to Big's hut and spotted the Tornado 2.

"Look It's the Tornado 2!" Tails said.

"Yeah, so let's get the Chaos Emerald and leave!" Sonic said then Chaos appeared and took the Emerald from the Tornado. "What? No! He's got the last Emerald!"

"Now what do we do?"

Meanwhile Station Square was hustling and bustling with traffic and pretty much another normal day. In the sewers under the city, the water started to ripple and soon to form into waves that had the troughs between them become deeper and deeper. Above, no one was aware of what's happening. Back in the sewers, water started to flood the tunnels, while above ground, manhole covers started to be blown clean into the air as water erupted from them, causing panic as cars screech to a halt to avoid hitting the geysers, the streets started cracking and fissure, and water started to blast out of buildings, shattering windows and flooding the streets before a huge tsunami roared over the buildings. When it was all over, the city was a flooded wasteland. Several windows on one wrecked building continue to blow out before a huge rush of water burst out before reforming into the head of Perfect Chaos. The beast let out a loud roar before zooming in on its eye as it opened to look around with its reptilian pupil.

"If I wasn't just dreaming, that monster is a real menace!" Sonic said realizing how vicious Chaos really is then saw the Egg Carrier 2 from the corner of her left eye.

Eggman then attempted to engage Perfect Chaos in combat.

"Eggman! Looks like he's after Chaos, too!"

"This Egg Carrier 2 was made because something like this could happen. You have defied your master, stupid beast. Now you must be destroyed at all costs!" Eggman said and open fired on Perfect Chaos, but Perfect Chaos demolished the Egg Carrier 2 with a massive beam of energy.

Eggman was flung away in his Egg Mobile after the Egg Carrier 2 crashed and exploded in a ball of fire.

"Aaaaahhhhh!" Eggman yelled.

"I've had enough! Who do you think you are, anyway?" Sonic said then Tikal arrived. "Oh, it's you! The one... who sealed Chaos... in the Master Emerald! Tikal!"

Tikal took physical form.

"My heart has always been in the Master Emerald, along with Chaos'. Now he's filled with anger and sadness. And If it goes on, he'll eventually destroy the world, like he did before!" Tikal said and Perfect Chaos let forth a terrifying roar and discarded the now powerless Chaos Emeralds. "Look! he's absorbed the Emerald's power! He must be sealed in the Master Emerald, NOW!"

"How can that help? It won't change how he feels inside, will it? His heart will still remain in turmoil and his anger just won't vanish! He'll just be trapped forever!"

"What choice do we have?"

"Hey, Sonic!" Amy said.

"Amy!"

"Here, take this!" Amy said and handed out a Chaos Emerald.

"Hey guys, what's up?"

"Chaos only used the negative power of the Emeralds. Sonic, you should be able to harness their real power!" Tails said.

"As much as I hate to admit it, I think Tails is right about this!" Knuckles said.

"Negative forces aren't the only way to empower the Chaos Emeralds. Our positive feelings toward each other can make them work. Our hearts together form awesome power."

Sonic closed her eyes and used the positive feelings of her friends and the citizens of Station Square to restore the Chaos Emeralds power and transformed into Super Sonic. Then she flew off to engage Perfect Chaos in battle.

When she was done Chaos was reverted to his normal form. He saw several of his organic kind, the Chao, and knew of their peacefulness.

"Chaos has changed again. This time for the better." Knuckles said.

"Yeah! Super Sonic must have neutralized it, so it's nice again." Tails said and Tikal arrived before Chaos.

"These are the chao you were protecting. They stayed alive for generations and now live peacefully with humans." she said. "The fighting's over. Harmony's restored, and life goes on." she said then turned to Sonic and company. "Thank you so much!"

Then she and Chaos levitate into the air and disappeared in a flash of light. Sonic noticed Eggman flying away.

"All's well that ends well, right? Sonic?" Tails said and Sonic jumped between the flooded buildings.
