This fanfic takes place directly after my latest recently-finished sprite comic series, Knuckles' Chaotix: The Last Story. If you haven't seen it yet, then I would recommend checking that out first, since this story contains references to that (and eventually, references to The Sonic Conspiracy, The Emerald Hunt, and Robotnik Strikes Back, as well).

Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power

Episode 1: Legend of the Elemental Gems

Part 1

This story is about the three mysterious, powerful jewels called the "Elemental Gems", each possessing power over a certain element. Additionally, each of the gems also contain a powerful, supernatural being called an "Elemental Goddess", which, as their name implies, have power and control over the three basic element; fire, water, and ice. In order for the Elemental Goddesses to be freed from their captivity, then their gems have to somehow come in contact with the respective element that they have control over. These gems also absorb positive or negative energy in the process, which means that they reflect the person who summons them. For instance, if they summoner happens to be pure of heart, then the Elemental Goddess will turn out that way. However, if the user happens to have evil, tainted ambitions, then it's the other way around.

So far, exactly one year has passed since Knuckles, the Chaotix, and all the others defeated the evil Solaris in an epic showdown to determine the fate of the universe. Although they won the battle, they, unfortunately, had to pay the ultimate price of losing their good friend, Wechnia, who sacrificed himself to stop Solaris' last act of destruction, which was meant to ensure the end of not only the Chaotix and company, but the entire universe, as well. Ever since that day, the world has been at peace. No one, not even Dr. Robotnik, has showed up to disturb the peace that they've all worked so hard to achieve. However, just because Robotnik hasn't been seen in a while, doesn't mean that he isn't somewhere "hatching" another evil scheme, even now, as we speak...

Here, we begin the tory with Dr. Robotnik, who's been absent for an entire year, heading to Angel Island in his airship, the "Egg Carrier III", but for what purpose, exactly?


Robotnik: So, the three legendary Elemental Gems are located on Angel Island, are they? HAHAHAHAHA... Perfect! According to my research, they've been split up and cleverly hidden in three different areas across the island to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. However, with the built-in emerald detector that I've installed into my glasses, I should be able to track them down with ease! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Once I'm in possession of all three Elemental Gems, I'll release the Goddesses from within them, and use their power to destroy each and EVERY one of my enemies, and with THEM out of the picture, I'll finally be free to realize my ambitions of building the Robotnik Empire and ruling this world! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Now, then! All systems, full power!

Cubot: Erm... Just fer my clarification, whenever you say "all systems, fullpower", 'dat means ya want me ta speed 'dis here ship up, right?

Orbot: *Facepalm* I think his voicebox is stuck on "cowboy" mode again...

Cubot: ...

Robotnik: To answer your question, Cubot, no, I wanted you to go ram your head into the wall! Of COURSE I meant increasing the speed!

Cubot: ...

Ah'm confused... Firsdt, you say ya want me to ram ma head into a wall, 'n' now yer sayin' 'dat 'cha want me to speed 'dis ship up? Yer makin' 'dis hard, here... Make up yer mind, would 'ja, pard?


Robotnik: ARGH! I was being SARCASTIC, you idiot! But you know what? Nevermind. Orbot, you take the wheel instead.

Obeying his master's command, Orbot took the wheel and turned on the jet boosters, heading towards Angel Island at full speed. Meanwhile, Knuckles, who happened to be at the altar, guarding the Master Emerald (as always), spotted ship.

Knuckles: *Looks up* Wait a minute... Isn't that one of Dr. Robotnik's airships? Oh, yeah, definitely! There's no mistake about it... That's him, alright! Even after being gone for a whole year, he's STILL up to no good, as usual! I wonder what he's up to THIS time? I'd better follow him and see what's up.

Before going after Robotnik, Knuckles turned on the security system that his robotic companions, Heavy and Bomb, as well as Wechnia, had previously installed at the altar, which surrounds the Master Emerald with an electro-magnetic barrier that keeps thieves from getting to it. Knuckles continued following the Egg Carrier III, until it eventually parked at the Lava Reef Zone, where one of the three Elemental Gems was said to be. Shortly afterwards, Robotnik, Orbot, and Cubot entered the volcano, while unknowingly being followed by Knuckles.

Orbot: Hey, Dr. Robotnik, what does your radar say about the Fire Gem's location?

Cubot: IT'S OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAANNNNDDD!!!

Orbot: ...

Robotnik: ...

Cubot: Heh heh heh! Sorry 'bout that, ya'll. It's just that I've always wanted ta say 'dat.

Robotnik: Okay, whatever. Anyway, according to my readings, it shouldn't be too far from here. HAHAHAHAHA... Oh, I could hardly stand the wait! Once I've released the Fire Goddess, I'll be one step closer to achieving my goal of ruling this world!

*Robotnik, Orbot, and Cubot move along*

Knuckles: *Peeking from around the corner* So, THAT'S what he's up to! He intends to awaken an ancient Fire Goddess, so he could use he powers for his world domination plan! I should've known! BUt this "Fire Goddess" that he speaks of... Why does it sound so familiar...? I guess I'll find out soon enough...

A little while later...

Robotnik: The detector readings are off the scale! I know the gem is around this area, but where, exactly?

Cubot: Erm...Is 'DIS what 'cher lookin' for, Dr. Robotnik? *Holds up a glowing red gem*

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA! Yes, that's it! That's the one! Excellent job, Cubot! It looks like you've finally done something useful for a change! *Takes it*

Orbot: Pssst! *Whispers to Cubot* How much do you wanna et that this Fire Goddess is going to end up turning on him, like every other creature he tries to use as a weapon? *Snickers*

Cubot: *Snickers, too*

Robotnik: *Glares* I heard that! Now, enough talk! It's time to-

Knuckles: *Comes from around the corner* Hold it right there!

Robotnik: W-WHAT!? Kn-Knuckles! When did you get here!?

Knuckles: Doesn't matter. I know what you're trying to do, and I won't allow it! Hand over that gem, right now!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA... As always, you say these things as if  you actually expect me to do it! I'd love to stay and chat, but unfortunately I don't have the time. Orbot, Cubot! Take care of him for me, would you? *Runs off*

Knuckles: Oh, no you don't!

Just as Knuckles was getting ready to follow Robotnik, Orbot and Cubot abruptly stepped in front of him, blocking his path.

Knuckels: You two out of my way!

Cubot: Sorry, pard, but we can't do that! Not unless ya complete 'dis here challenge we've got fer ya!

...

Umm, what're we 'sposed to e challengin' him to, again?


Orbot: *Anime fall* Cubot, I swear... You could be so stupid sometimes! Isn't it obvious? We're supposed to be challenging him to a fight!

Cubot: Oh, right.

Knuckles: Fine. If it's a fight you want, it's a fight you'll get!

Orbot: Why don't we attack him head-on with a charge?


Cubot: You goddit, pardner! YEHAAAAW!

The two robots tried changing towards Knuckles at full speed, but he quickly grabbed the two of them, and banged their heads together.

Orbot & Cubot: OUUUCCCH!

Knuckles: That outta teach you! Now, if you'd excuse me, I'll be catching up to Robotnik!

After defeating the bumbling duo, Knuckles wasted no time, and started following Robotnik in an effort to reclaim the Fire Element Gem from his evil grasp. The chase went on for a while, until they eventually reach a dead end.

Knuckles: You're got nowhere else to run now, Robotnik! Just hand over that Fire Element Gem, nice and easy...

Robotnik: HAHAHAHA... Oh, I don't think so! As a matter of fact, you're too late! *Holds the gem over a boiling pit of lava*

Knuckles: What're you doing!? No, you wouldn't!

Robotnik: Just try me, Knucklehead!

As it turns out, the mad doctor wasn't bluffing, as he quickly dropped the Fire Element Gem into the lava. Shortly afterwards, a pillar of flames shot into the air, and ended up forming into an orange, female hedgehog with long, fiery hair (that's literally made out of fire), a red and purple dress with diamond shapes, along with a golden tiara (with a red gem in the middle), ring bracelets (similar to the ones worn by Amy Rose), and golden sandals.

???: HAHAHAHAHAHA! Yes! At long last, after thousands of years, I'm free again!

Knuckles: What the...!?

Robotnik: Oh ho! I'll take it that you're the legendary Fire Goddess?

???: That's right. I'm Scorch, the Goddess of Fire. And you are?

Robotnik: I am Doctor Ivo Robotnik, the greatest scientific genius in the world! I am the one who's freed you fro your many years of captivity!

Scorch: Ah, I see. I've been cooped up in that gem for centuries, and I've almost begun to lose hope that I would ever be free again, but then, you showed up and brightened my day. Thank you for releasing me, Dr. Robotnik. I am forever in your debt. *Bows* There aren't enough words to describe my gratitude. I will do anything, and I mean ANYTHING to repay the favor you've done for me. Just name it...

Robotnik: Well, in that case... Do you see that echidna right there I want you to destroy him! You can do that for me, can't you?

Scorch: Oh, is that all? HAHAHAHA... Of course! It will be my pleasure!

Knuckles: What do you mean "is that all"!? For an old hag, you sure are pretty arrogant!

Scorch: ...

Okay, first of all, if you were anywhere NEAR as powerful as I, then you'd understand where I'm coming from. Secondly, WHAT did you call me!?


Knuckles: You heard EXACTLY what I said!

Scorch: GRRR... I'll have you know, that I look EXTRAORDINARILY good for someone my age! There are women who aren't even half my age, who'd KILL to look as young and pretty as I do!

Knuckles: Pffft. Yeah, as if.

Scorch: Okay, NOW you've done it! Your fate has been sealed! Prepare to die!

Knuckles: Just so you know, I take no pleasure in fighting women, but I'll make an exception in your case!

Part 2

On the previous chapter of Elements of Power, Dr. Robotnik, after a year-long absence, arrived on Angel Island with his minions, Orbot and Cubot, in search of the Fire Element Gem, which was said to contain a powerful Fire Goddess. The doctor intended to release the Goddess from her prison, so that he could use her powers to aid him in his quest for world domination. Knuckles, upon overhearing this, decided to follow Robotnik, Orbot, and Cubot to Lava Reef in order to stop him before his plan could be put into effect. After finding the Fire Element Gem, Dr. Robotnik decided to have Orbot and Cubot keep Knuckles busy, while he runs off to release the Fire Goddess without any interruptions.

However, Knuckles was able to defeat them with ease, and continued his pursuit of the mad doctor. Before Knuckles had a chance to take the gem from him, Robotnik dropped it into the lava, effectively breaking the seal and releasing the Goddess from her imprisonment. She then introduced herself as Scorch, the Goddess of Fire, and expressed her thanks to the doctor for releasing her, claiming that she would do anything to repay him. Using this to his advantage, Robotnik decided to pit her in a fight against Knuckles, a task that she gladly accepted, especially after being provoked. Which of the two will come out the victor; Knuckles or Scorch? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 1: Legend of the Elemental Gems!

Scorch held out the palm of her hand, and started launching a volley of fire blasts at Knuckles, but he was able to dodge every one that was fired at him. As Knuckles continued to dodge, he eventually got close enough to land a punch right to Scorch’s jaw, sending her crashing through a wall.


Scorch: UHHHHHH!

Knuckles: Where’s all that bravado now, huh?

Scorch: Hmph! *Sits up and wipes the blood from around her mouth* I’ll admit, you’re tougher than I thought, but don’t let that go to your head! I’m just getting “warmed up”, if you catch my drift.

Knuckles: Resorting to using puns now? You sound almost exactly like my friend, Charmy, only less irritating. But enough talk! Let’s continue where we left off!

Scorch: Gladly! You will get no more lucky shots from here on out!

So then, the battle continued. Knuckles and Scorch continued to duke it out in an epic showdown, fighting one another face-to-face, matching each other blow-for-blow. The battle went on for a while, with the two fighters showing lots of persistence, not wanting to give up until only one of them was left standing.

Knuckles: *Breathes hard* (Man… I haven’t fought a girl THIS tough since Rouge…)

Scorch: *Breathes hard, too* You’re…unbelievably strong. Just…who are you, anyway?

Knuckles: I’m Knuckles, Knuckles the Echidna, guardian and protector of the Master Emerald, as well as Angel Island itself.

Scorch: I see…

Shortly afterwards, a vibration started to occur.

Scorch: H-Huh!? What’s going on!? Is that an earthquake, or is this volcano starting to erupt!?

Robotnik:  Regardless of which it is, I’m not sticking around to find out! Let’s get out of here, Scorch! Quickly! My airship, the Egg Carrier III, is waiting for us outside!

Scorch: Right. *Turns toward Knuckles* You’re definitely a worthy adversary. I look forward to fighting with you again. *Grabs Robotnik by the arm, and jets off at the speed of a rocket*

Knuckles: Whoa, she’s almost as fast as Sonic! Anyway, though, there’s no time to worry about that… I have to hurry up and get out of here, myself!

As the volcano began to cave in, Knuckles ran as fast as he could to escape. Meanwhile, Robotnik and Scorch came across Orbot and Cubot, who were lying on the ground, damaged from their short battle with Knuckles.

Orbot: Ah, Dr. Robotnik… It’s you… *Czzzzt!* Can you help us, please? We can’t…get up, and this place is about to erupt…

Cubot: Yeah… We could really use yer help… *Czzzt!*

Scorch: Who are these guys?

Robotnik…

I haven’t a single clue. I’ve never seen them before in my life.


Orbot: S-Say what!? *Czzzt!*

Cubot: Whadda ya mean ya never saw us!? We’re yer robots!

Robotnik: …

Alright, fine. Yes, they’re my robots. Rather useless ones, that is, which I regret ever creating. You two are the single, most idiotic robots I’ve ever made, bungling even the smallest tasks that were assigned to you!


Cubot: Cerrect me ‘f ah’m wrong here, but ain’t we ‘da ones who got’chu ‘dat Fire Gem!?

Orbot: Yes, that’s right!

Robotnik: …

Yes, and I thank you for it. For once in your pathetic lives, you’ve actually done something usual for a change. However, now that Scorch is here, you two are no longer of any use to me. Goodbye, you worthless hunks of junk! Come on, Scorch, let’s get going! *Runs off*


Orbot & Cubot: DR. ROBOTNIK, WAAAAAIIIIITT!!!

Scorch: …

Just then, Scorch turned back to get one last look at the damaged duo, with a sad expression on her face. Just as she saw Knuckles coming their way, she took off to go follow Robotnik.

Knuckles: *Looks down at Orbot and Cubot* Robotnik didn’t come back for you guys…?

Orbot: No, he…didn’t… *Czzzt!* Despite the fact…that we’ve worked so hard for him, and remained loyal all this time, he saw us as nothing more than “useless hunks of junk”, and decided to leave us here to die in this volcano… *Czzzzt!*

Cubot: Yup… *Czzzt!* ‘e told us ‘dat we ain’t no use to ‘em anymore, now ‘dat ‘e has ‘dat Fire Goddess on ‘is side…

Knuckles: WHAT!? This is pretty low, even for him! This is almost on the same level as Mephiles, in fact! No wonder Heavy, Bomb, and a few of his other creations have turned against him!

Cubot: Yeah, so… Does ‘dis mean yer gunna help us out…?

Before Knuckles could respond, the volcano vibrated again, and a sudden burst of lava was seen heading toward them.

Knuckles: Whoa! Alright, hang on, you guys! We’re busting out of here!

Knuckles quickly grabbed the two damaged robots and took off at high speed, being followed by a sea of molten lava. Just as they reach what appeared to be a dead end, Knuckles used his brute strength to bust through the wall and kept moving, until they eventually managed to narrowly escape the volcano.

Cubot: Thank ya ver’ much, pard! Ya saved our lives!

Orbot: Yeah, thanks! But…why did you do it?

Knuckles: It was no special reason, really. Like I said, what he did was low, even
for him, and I don’t think anyone deserves to be treated that way. Oh, by the way, I know someone who could repair you guys. Three people, as a matter of fact. Two of them are former henchmen of Robotnik’s.

Orbot: Really? *Czzzt!* Where can we…find them?

Knuckles: They’re at Tails’ Workshop. Since I’m responsible for damaging you two, and since you’re in no condition to move on your own, I guess I’m going to have to carry you there.


Cubot: Thanks again… Yer a real life saver!

Knuckles: Don’t mention it.

Staying true to his word, Knuckles began carrying Orbot and Cubot to Tails’ Workshop, in order to get them repaired. Meanwhile, up at the Egg Carrier III…

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA… Well, so far, I’ve claimed one of the Elemental Gems, and now there are two more to go! As soon as I’m in possession of all three, all of my enemies will be vanquished, and this world will be mine to control!

Scorch: That’s your goal, Dr. Robotnik? World domination?

Robotnik: Yes, that’s right. I plan to build the Robotnik Empire, the ultimate utopia where everyone will acknowledge my pure genius, worshiping me as their almighty ruler! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Scorch:  Ah, I see! You know, I once had that very same goal, but as you’re probably aware already, my plans were thwarted, and as a result, I was imprisoned in my own gem, due to the fact that those peons couldn’t stand up to my awesome power. Now that I’m finally free again, I’m going to spread all the suffering I’ve had to endure as I was sealed up for all those years! *Clenches her fist* Ooh, if that wretched Tikal was still alive today, I’d send her straight to oblivion in a heartbeat! She’d pay dearly for what she’s done to me!

Robotnik: Tikal? That orange echidna who’s always being accompanied by Chaos? HAHAHAHAHAHA! She’s still alive and well! In fact, she’s even taken part in foiling one of my previous world domination plans!

Scorch:  Really, now!? HAHAHAHAHAHA! Well, this is certainly convenient for me! I’m relieved to know that time hasn’t robbed me of the vengeance I’ve dreamed of for all these years!

Robotnik: According to my emerald detector, the Water Element Gem seems to be located within a Chao Garden. Coincidentally, Chao Gardens are some of Tikal’s favorite hangouts! While there, I could claim the gem that I’m seeking, while you, on the other hand, can exact your revenge!

Scorch: HAHAHAHAHAHA! Yes, perfect! Although, to be honest, Dr. Robotnik… As long as I’m around, I don’t think you’ll need any help from Splash or Slush. Sure, the two of them are powerful, but they’re not quite in the same league as I am.

Robotnik:  “Splash”? “Slush”? Who are they?

Scorch: They’re my sisters, which are contained inside of the Water and Ice Element Gems. They and I are triplets, with me being the oldest, Splash being the middle sibling, and Slush being the youngest.

Robotnik: I see, but as powerful as you may be, it doesn’t hurt to have the two of them around, just in case. I may still need them for something. They’re just as essential to my world domination plans as you are, Scorch.

Scorch: Okay, if that’s what you want. Exactly where is this “Chao Garden”, anyway?

Robotnik: It’s located within the Mystic Ruins. All I need to do is turn on the jet boosters, and we’ll be there in no time. Very soon, I’ll be able to obtain the Water Element Gem that I desire, while you, on the other hand, will be able to seek the revenge you’ve dreamed of for so long!

Scorch: Sounds like a plan!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA… HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Scorch: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

As the two of them laughed maniacally, they set a course for the Mystic Ruins, heading there at full speed. With Knuckles on his way to Tails' Workshop, which is in a completely different path from the Chao Garden, is there anyone around to stop Robotnik from claiming the Water Element Gem, and furthering his diabolical plan for world conquest? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Dragon Ba-, I mean... Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Part 3

When we last left off, Knuckles squared off against the Fire Goddess, Scorch at the Lava Reef Zone, after Dr. Robotnik pitted the two of them against one another. The two of them fought a close, evenly-matched battle, but due to Scorch's rage and control over the fire element, she ended up causing a volcanic eruption by mistake. As a result, she, Knuckles, and Robotnik had no choice but to make their escape.

Just as Robotnik and Scorch were on their way out, they ran into Orbot and Cubot, who were lying on the ground, damaged after their brief battle against Knuckles. The two of them pleaded for help, but unfortunately for them, their words fell on deaf ears with Robotnik, who was fed up with their incompetence. As such, he decided to leave without them. Scorch, however, began to feel sympathy for them, and considered helping them, but decided to leave it to Knuckles instead. After carrying the two of them out of the volcano, Knuckles decided to take the two of them to Tails' Workshop so they could be repaired.

Meanwhile, Dr. Robotnik and Scorch, after escaping from the volcano, were on their way to a Chao Garden located within the Mystic Ruins, which just-so-happens to be the location of the Water Element Gem. Additionally, that happens to be the favorite hangout of Tikal, a long-time enemy of Scorch's, whom she plans to seek revenge on. Will Tikal, or anyone else, be able to stop the two of them when they arrive? Find out as you read on!


Robotnik: *Stops the Egg Carrier III in midair* HAHAHAHAHA… Well, Scorch, we're here! It's time for us to execute our plan!

Scorch: Right.

Just as the two of them were on their way out, Scorch and Robotnik were abruptly stopped by a certain thieving weasel, which happened to pointing a fully-loaded pistol at them.

???: Hold it right 'dere, Robotnik!

Robotnik: N-Nack! Bean! It's you! When did you get here!? Better yet, HOW did you get here!?

Nack: Heh heh heh! Bean 'n' I decided ta hitch a ride on 'dis airship while you 'n' 'dose two robots were at 'da volcano! We was waitin' for you ta come back, so we could surprise ya when 'da time came!

Bean: That's right. I'll bet you weren't expecting that now, were you?

Scorch: *Quickly gets in front of Robotnik* Look, you two. I don't know who you think you are, but whatever problem it is that you have with Dr. Robotnik, you're going to have to take it up with me now!

Nack: Outta 'da way, toots! 'Dis ain't none 'o ya business, y'hear!?

Bean: What's this? You're having girls fight your battles for you now, Robotnik? HAHAHAHAHA… You're an even bigger coward than I thought!

Robotnik: WHAT!? I'm no coward, you insolent fool!

Nack: Heh heh heh! Well, ya sure coulda fooled me, doc!

Robotnik: Actually, you know what, Scorch? I'll handle this.

Scorch: Are you sure? Well, okay then.

Bean: Now THAT'S more like it!

Robotnik: *Walks toward them* Now then… Why are you here? What is it that the two of you want, anyway?

Nack: What, ya really don't remember? A'ight 'den, leddus refresh ya memory! Remembuh 'dat $1,000,000,000 reward 'ju promised us a while back fa gatherin' 'dos Master Emerald pieces for ya? Well, you still owe us 'dat money, 'n' we ain't leavin' 'til you pay up!

Bean: You've got two choices here, Robotnik. Choice number one: You could pay us the money that you owe us, and we'll leave without any trouble. Choice number two: Nack will pump your guts full of lead, while I blow you to smithereens, and still take the money anyway.

Nack: Yeah, so what's it gonna be, 'doc? *Clicks the gun*

Scorch: Dr. Robotnik… It isn't too late to change your mind, you know.  Like I said before, I'm eternally grateful for what you've done for me, and I'll do anything to repay the favor. These peons won't pose much of a challenge for me.

Robotnik: No, Scorch! I said I'LL handle it!

Scorch: Alright. Suit yourself then.

Robotnik: There is ONE thing you could do for me, however... *Whispers in her ear*

Scorch: *Grins* Alright, got it.

Nack: Well, Robotnik, you've got ten more seconds ta make your decision, or we'll make it for ya! Goddit!?

Robotnik: …

Very well. You win.


Bean: Heh heh heh! Smart choice. I knew you'd see things our way.

Nack: Yep, now you're speakin' our language, doc! Now, where's 'da cash?

Robotnik: The safe that I use to contain my riches is right this way. Follow me.

Nack: A'ight, cool. 'N' ya beddah not try nutin' funny 'dis time, 'cause I'll bussa cap in ya right now, on 'da spot! 'N' keep your hands where we could see 'em!

While being held at gunpoint, Robotnik began to slowly lead the two thieves to the cargo area, where his safe is contained.

Robotnik: (HAHAHAHAHA… Yes, perfect! They're taking the bait! Now, if I could just lead them onto that circular area, I'll be able to put this into effect…)

Nack: 'Ey! Walk fastah, y'hear!? We ain't got all day, ya know! *Clicks the gun again*

Robotnik: Fine.

As Nack and Bean waited, Robotnik went into the cargo area, and brought out a large black safe with his insignia on it.

Bean: Heh heh heh! Sweet!

Nack: Good, good!

Robotnik: Just out of curiosity, how do I know for sure that you won't try shooting me anyway, even after I've handed you the money?

Nack: Aftah 'da way you've set us up in 'da past, you're lucky we don't kill ya where ya stand! Now go ahead 'n' open it! Now! *Clicks the gun again*

Robotnik: As you wish. (HAHAHAHA… Yes, yes! I've got them RIGHT where I want them now! Just you wait, fools… You'll get your "reward", alright! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA…)

Upon Nack's command, Robotnik turned the knob, entered the safe's combination, and unlocked it, revealing a plethora of bundled dollar bills.

Robotnik: As you can plainly see, gentlemen, I have all of the money that I owe you for your services, plus extra!

Nack: HAHAHAHAHAHA! It's nice ta see 'dat 'cha've finally come ta your senses, doc!

Robotnik: Indeed, I have! Here, it's all yours! Take it!

Overjoyed about the amount of cash that Robotnik had to offer, Nack and Bean quickly ran over to the safe to claim the prize they felt they truly deserved, unknowingly playing right into the evil doctor's hand.

Robotnik: *Notices that they're heading towards the circular area* Now, Scorch! The red button! Quickly!

Scorch nodded, and quickly pressed the red button on the Egg Carrier III's control panel, opening a trapdoor underneath the two unfortunate thieves, sending them plummeting towards the ground.

Nack: W-WHAT 'DA…!? AH, CRAP! AH, CRAAAAAAAAAAAP!!!

Bean: WHOA, WHOOOOOOOAAAAAHHHH!!!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Scorch: HAHAHAHAHAHA! So long, weasel boy! I hope you and your feathered friend have a nice fall!

Nack and Bean continued to fall, until they eventually hit the ground, getting knocked unconscious and making a crater in the process.

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA! That was pure genius, wasn't it? I'm so brilliant, that I even amaze myself sometimes!  Now, let's go ahead and take care of business, shall we, Scorch? You know, before we were rudely interrupted?

Scorch: Gladly. I can't WAIT to even the score!

Meanwhile, in an area not too far from there…

Tikal: *Comes from the Chao Garden entrance, looking around*

Mighty: *Follows her* Is there something wrong, Tikal?

Tikal: Yes. I thought I heard something, but as it turns out, there's nothing there. Perhaps I was just hearing things…

Mighty: Oh, I see. Should we go back to the Chao Garden?

Tikal: Sure, but there's one…other thing I'd like to do while we're alone out here, if you know what I mean. *Winks*

Mighty: Eh heh heh heh! S-Sure! ^^;;

Just as the two of them leaned in to kiss, a fiery explosion occurs nearby.

Tikal: Huh!?

Mighty: What's going on!?

Robotnik: *Hovers down in his Egg –O- Matic Hovercraft, and jumps out of it* Oh, I'm sorry. I'm not interrupting anything, am I? HAHAHAHAHA…

Tikal: Dr. Robotnik!

Mighty: What are YOU doing here!? You've come to capture these poor, defenseless Chao and turn them into robots, haven't you!?

Tikal: You monster! How could you do such a thing!? You should be ashamed of yourself!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA! That's an interesting idea, but no. You see, I'm seeking the three Elemental Gems, and according to my radar, one of them is located within that Chao Garden. Oh, and by the way, Tikal, I've run into an old friend of yours that's just dying to see you again!

Tikal: An old friend, you say?

Robotnik: See for yourself! *Points to Scorch as she slowly hovers down*

Scorch: Why, hello there, Tikal! It's been too long!

Tikal: …! *Gasps*

Scorch: HAHAHAHAHAHA! What's the matter? You look as if you've seen a ghost!


Mighty: Tikal, you've met this woman before? Where do you know her from, exactly?

Tikal: That's Scorch, one of the three Elemental Goddesses spoken of in the legend. She once threw the world into the depths of terror thousands of years ago. The two of us had a showdown, and I ended the battle by having her sealed within the gem. Up until now, she hasn't been seen or heard from ever since.

Scorch: Yes, you might have gotten lucky back then, but that's NOT going to happen this time! For what you've done to me, I'm going to pay you back in full!


Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA… It's such a tearful reunion, isn't it? While the two of you catch up and get yourselves reacquianted, I'll just help myself to that Water Element Gem. *Starts walking toward the Chao Garden*

Mighty: Oh, no you don't! *Steps in front of him* Judging from how anxious you are to obtain that gem, you're most likely trying to use it for yet another of your world domination plans, and I won't allow it! If you want to enter that Chao Garden, then you're going to have to go through me!

Robotnik quickly jumped back into his Egg-O- Matic Hovercraft, pressed a button, and transformed it into the Egg Walker (from Sonic Adventure 2).

Robotnik: I'm going to have to go through you, you say? Then so be it. It's quite a shame that Knuckles and the rest of those Chaotix fools aren't around right now, to witness the moment of your destruction! It's time you've witnessed the TRUE power of a REAL evil genius!

It looks as if things are really heating up! After managing to outsmart Nack and Bean, Dr. Robotnik and Scorch have finally made their way to the Mystic Ruins Chao Garden. Unexpectedly, Mighty the Armadillo happened to be there, and is determined to make sure that Robotnik's plans don't go any further than they already have. So far, not one, but two epic battles will be taking place; Mighty against Robotnik, and Tikal's rematch against Scorch. Which side will come out the victor? Which of them will end up releasing the legendary Water Goddess? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 1: Legend of the Elemental Gems!

Part 4

When we last left off, Dr. Robotnik and Scorch set a course for their next destination, the Mystic Ruins, where the Water Element Gem, as well as Scorch’s long-time enemy, Tikal was said to be. However, before they could make their move, they were met with an unexpected encounter by Nack the Weasel and Bean the Dynamite, who showed up at the Egg Carrier III, demanding the money that Robotnik owed them for their services to him in the past. The two thieves were determined to get their reward, even going so far as to hold the egg-shaped doctor at gunpoint, as well as issuing bomb threats if he didn’t bow down to their demands. Unfortunately for them, however, Nack and Bean were outsmarted by the crafty doctor once again, as he and Scorch lured them into a trap, sending the two criminals falling out of the Egg Carrier III from a high altitude.

With that problem out of the way, Scorch and Robotnik were free to go to the Chao Garden without anymore interruptions. They were, however, met with another unexpected encounter. This time, from Mighty the Armadillo, who was determined to make sure that Robotnik didn’t succeed in getting ahold of the Water Element Gem. Knowing that there was no other way to enter the Chao Garden, except through Mighty, Dr. Robotnik hastily went back into his Egg-O-Matic Hovercraft and got it ready for combat mode. Which side will emerge victorious? Mighty and Tikal, or Scorch and Dr. Robotnik? Find out on this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!


Scorch: Hmm hmm hmm hmm! Why so serious, Tikal? Are you THAT surprised to see me again? Or is it that you’ve finally come to the realization that you’re outmatched? I’d say that the latter explanation is definitely more likely, considering the fact that I’m absolutely your superior in every way, shape, and form.

Tikal: Hmph, you’re still the same as ever, Scorch. Even thousands of years later, you haven’t changed one bit. You’re still as egotistical and self-centered as I remember, and once again, your overconfidence is going to be your undoing!

Scorch: HAHAHAHAHA! Oh, I’d LOVE to see how you’re going to back THAT one up!


Robotnik: So, armadillo, are you ready to get this over with, or what? You’re not the ONLY one I have to destroy today, you know. I’m on a schedule, here!

Mighty: You won’t be destroying ANYONE, Robotnik. Not if I have anything to say about it!

After that, both battles began. Robotnik aimed at Mighty with a small beam of red light, got him locked on target with a crosshair, and fired several projectiles at him, which he began to dodge. Scorch, on the other hand, rolled into a fireball, and dashed toward Tikal at the speed of a comet. Fortunately, Tikal was able to narrowly escape this attack, causing Scorch to accidently crash through a wall.

Scorch: AUUUUGGGH! Not again! This is the SECOND time this has happened to me today!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA! GET A LOAD O’ THIS!

Robotnik got Mighty locked on target again, and launched a large missile at him. When it got close enough to him, Mighty, using his super strength, caught the missile and launched it right back at the evil doctor.

Robotnik: WHAT!? NO WAY! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS!

Just as the missile was heading towards Robotnik, he quickly turned on the Egg Walker’s jet engine and hovered into the air, causing the rocket to miss and go underneath him. Shortly afterwards, Mighty charged toward him at full speed, leaped into the air, and used the Homing Attack.

Robotnik: AUGH! Oh, that’s it! NOW I’m going to destroy you!

With that said, Robotnik continued firing projectiles at Mighty, which he once again, managed to dodge. Meanwhile, Scorch came back from the wall, surrounded her fists with fire, and threw several punches at Tikal, which she managed to avoid.

Scorch: Hmph, you’re a lot quicker than I remember, but speed alone won’t be enough to save you!

Tikal: You’re right, but maybe THIS will!

Tikal ducked underneath Scorch’s attack, and punched her in the stomach, knocking the wind out of her.

Scorch: GHHHH…! *Holds her stomach* Oh, NOW you’ve done it!

Regaining her composure, Scorch held out the palm of her hand, and blasted Tikal with a fire blast, sending her flying into the wall.

Tikal: Ahhhhhhhhh!

Mighty: Tikal!

While Mighty was focused on Tikal, Robotnik took that as his opportunity to strike, using the Egg Walker’s propeller punch technique to send Mighty flying into the wall, as well.

Mighty: Uhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA! I’ll leave YOU to take care of things from here, Scorch!  *Gets out of the Egg Walker and heads toward the Chao Garden*

Scorch: Sure. It’ll be my pleasure.

Mighty: Oh, no you don’t!

Just as Robotnik was heading toward the Chao Garden’s entrance, Mighty tried chasing after him, only to be knocked away by one of Scorch’s fire blasts.

Mighty: Uhhhhhhh! *Falls over*

Tikal: Mighty!

Scorch: HAHAHAHAHA! Now, it’s your turn, Tikal…


While holding out the palm of her hand again, Scorch began to power up another attack, which was a large, circular ball of fire.

Scorch: Dodge this one if you can! You’re HISTORY!

After Scorch finished powering up her fireball, she wasted no time, as she quickly threw it towards Tikal in an effort to finish her off. However, Mighty quickly raced over there at high speed, and carried Tikal away before the fireball could come in contact with her.

Tikal: Whew, that was close! Thank you, Mighty. *Kisses him on the cheek*

Mighty: *Blushes* D-Don’t mention it! ^^;;

Scorch: Aww, now isn’t that cute? I wouldn’t celebrate just yet if I were you, lover boy, because I’ve still got plenty of other tricks up my sleeve. I could obliterate you both within an instant at any time now.

Mighty: Then what’s stopping you?

Scorch: You know, that’s a good question.

Tikal: We’ll never allow you OR Dr. Robotnik to…!


Oh, I almost forgot! Mighty, one of us needs to go stop him before he gets ahold of the Water Element Gem!


Mighty: Okay. I’ll hold Scorch off, while you stop Robotnik from getting it.

Tikal: Right. *Runs off*

While Tikal was hurrying towards the Chao Garden, Scorch was getting ready to shoot her with another fire blast, but was quickly stopped by Mighty, who spun into her with a Spin Dash. Additionally, Dr. Robotnik was already on his way out of the Chao Garden before Tikal could enter.

Tikal: No! Don’t tell me that I’m too late!?

Robotnik: Fortunately for you, I was unable to find it, due to the fact that my radar could only detect the general area that the Elemental Gems are located in. For future reference, I’m definitely going to consider upgrading my emerald detector, so that it could track down their precise location.

Mighty: Whew, that’s a relief…

Robotnik: Oh, I wouldn’t feel so relieved just yet, because I know EXACTLY how to obtain it! *Takes out a remote control switch* Do you want to know what this is? It’s a remote control switch for the Egg Carrier III, which has the ability to activate its laser cannons from a far distance! Tell me, Tikal… How much do you care for these Chao of yours?

Tikal: N-No! What is it that you’re trying to imply!? Are you saying that you intend to harm them!?

Robotnik: Well... Something like that. HAHAHAHAHAHA...

Mighty: You wouldn’t!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, yes I would! Just try me, fool!

Tikal: NO!!! YOU LEAVE THEM ALONE!!!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, but don’t worry! If you would just simply tell me where the Water Element Gem is hidden, then it won’t have to come to that!

Mighty: GRRR…

Robotnik: If you refuse, then I’ll be forced to press this switch to trigger those laser cannons, and destroy the Chao Garden, sending the Chao and all of its other inhabitants to oblivion! So, what’s it going to be?

Tikal: …

If I were to give you that gem, do I have your word that you’ll leave this Chao Garden in peace?


Robotnik: Yes, of course. You have my promise.

Not wanting to risk the safety of her Chao, Tikal had no choice but to bow down to Robotnik’s demands. She went into the Chao Garden, and came back out a minute later, holding a blue colored gem that’s the exact size and shape as Scorch’s.

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Excellent! That’s just what I was looking for!

Scorch: Hmm hmm hmm! Wow, and to think THAT’S all it took to get ahold of it…

Tikal: Here it is. *Tosses the gem to Robotnik* Please take it and leave them alone!


Robotnik:  *Catches it* Thank you for your cooperation. Sure, I’ll leave the Chao Garden in “peace”, alright. PIECES, that is! HAHAHAHAHAHA...

Mighty: WHAT!?

Tikal: You said that you wouldn’t hurt them!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Well, as you can see, I lied!

Just as Robotnik was getting ready to press the button, Mighty rushed over there and quickly snatched the remote, as well as the Water Element Gem, out of his hands. After that, he quickly slammed the remote down, stepped on it, and broke it.

Robotnik: ARGH! CURSES! You’re going to pay for this, you meddlesome armadillo! Scorch, help me get that gem back, will you?

Scorch: Sure thing.

Scorch quickly dashed towards Mighty in an effort to get the gem back, but before she could get to it, Mighty tossed the gem to Tikal. After Tikal caught it, she immediately began running towards the pond to release the Water Goddess from within. Scorch, in an effort to get the gem back, began to chase Tikal down, shooting fireballs at her, which she dodged.

Mighty: Yes, you can do it, Tikal!

Scorch: End of the line! Hand over that gem! *Shoots at her again*

Tikal: Ahhhhh! *Falls over*


After being knocked down by Scorch’s attack, Tikal fell over, accidently dropping the Water Element Gem into the pond.

Scorch: W-WHAT!?

Robotnik: NOOOOOOOO!!!

As the gem “splashed” its way into the water, it began to glow, and released a large tidal wave into the air, which formed into a female hedgehog that looks nearly identical to Scorch, with the only differences being that her color is blue (rather than orange), her hair, of course, is made out of water (rather than fire), a dress that’s colored dark blue on one side and light blue on the other (rather than purple and red like Scorch’s), and lastly, a blue gem in her tiara, rather than red one.

Tikal: It's...it's her!

Mighty: ...!

Robotnik: ...!

At last, the Water Goddess has been awakened! But is she friend or foe? Find out on the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Part 5

On the last chapter of Elements of Power, Mighty and Tikal began their battles against the Scorch, who was determined to settle a centuries-old vendetta against Tikal, and Dr. Robotnik, who was bent on obtaining the Water Element Gem to use for his evil purposes. Unable to find the gem, Robotnik attempted to force Tikal tell him where it was hidden, by threatening to destroy the Chao Garden, which would, of course, result in the deaths of many Chao. Not wanting that to happen, Tikal made a deal with Robotnik, stating that she would give him the Water Element Gem on one condition: That he would leave the Chao in peace.

After he was given the gem, Robotnik backed out on their deal, and tried to destroy the Chao Garden anyway. Fortunately, Mighty was able to confiscate his remote control switch and break it, as well as reclaiming the Water Element Gem in the process. In a desperate attempt to keep the gem out of their hands, Tikal hurried to a nearby pond to release the Water Goddess herself, while being followed by Scorch, who attempted to stop her. Although Scorch seemingly had the upper hand, the Water Element Gem still fell into the pond, anyway, triggering the Water Goddess’ release. The question remains: Is she friend or foe? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!

???:  At last, some fresh air! It’s good to finally be free again! I’ve waited SO long for this day! HAHAHAHAHA! *Notices Scorch* Hmm? Hello, there, Scorch. It’s been a while. It’s nice to see you again.

Scorch: Likewise, Splash. Likewise.

Robotnik: Ah, so YOU must be Scorch’s sister, the legendary Water Goddess!

Splash: Yes, that’s me. I am Splash, the Goddess of Water. Who might you be?

Robotnik: I am Doctor Ivo Robotnik, the most cunning scientific genius in the world! I’d like to offer you an opportunity to join us, Splash, in our quest to rule the world!

Splash: …

THAT’S what you’re trying to do? Take over the world?


Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA… Correct you are, my friend! With yours and your sister’s awesome power at my disposal, I’ll finally be free to realize my ambitions!  Again, I ask you to join us! Together, we’ll be unstoppable! NOTHING could touch us! As the rulers of the world, we’ll be free to do anything we choose! Alongside us, you’ll be in complete and total control of everything! All of this planet’s inhabitants will kneel before us! They’ll be nothing more than mere playthings for your amusement, subject to your every whim! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! So, what do you say, Splash, my dear? Are you up for it?

Splash: …

What do I say, you’re asking? I say that you disgust me, that’s what.


Robotnik: EXCUSE me!?

Splash: As a matter of fact, Dr. Robotnik, I recognize your voice. You’re the one I heard threatening to slaughter all those poor, helpless Chao if my gem wasn’t given to you! It’s already bad enough that you’re trying to use my gem for an evil purpose such as conquering the world, but you’ve crossed the line by attempting to harm such innocent creatures!

Robotnik: …

Ugh, that’s JUST what I needed…a lecture. Thank you for the public service announcement.


Splash: You, sir, are a vile, despicable excuse for a human being, and I don’t want anything to do with you OR your world domination plans!

Robotnik: GRRR…

Mighty: …

Well, Tikal, it’s nice to know that she’s on our side.


Tikal: Yes, I couldn’t agree more.

Robotnik: Very well then, whatever. Who needs you, anyway? A worthless, sentimental tree-hugger like you would do nothing but slow us down, anyway!

Splash: Call me what you want, but being a “worthless, sentimental tree-hugger” is a lot better than being a heartless monster like you! As for you, Scorch, you ought to be ashamed of yourself, being in cahoots with someone like him!

Scorch: …

Did you honestly think I had a choice in the matter? I had zero control over who obtained my gem and released me. If Dr. Robotnik hadn’t done what he did, I’d probably still be cooped up in that gem for another thousand years or so, maybe even for the rest of my life! I owe everything to this man, and I’ll do anything to repay the favor, even at the cost of my life!


Splash: I see where you’re coming from, Scorch, but honestly, you don’t owe him a thing! How do you know for sure that he isn’t taking advantage of you!? Robotnik doesn’t care anything about you! You’re nothing more than a tool to him, and that’s it!

Mighty: She’s got a point there, Scorch.

Robotnik: Yes, an invalid point, that is.

Mighty: I’ve known Robotnik for a while now, and believe me; he doesn’t care about anyone or anything but himself. In fact, even some of his own robots have turned against him because of it!

Scorch: Enough! You people don’t know what you’re talking about! Dr. Robotnik has been very kind to me so far! Aside from being generous enough to release me from my many years of captivity, he’s treated me with the utmost respect! The kind of respect that no one’s ever showed to me before! He’s the only friend I’ve ever had, and I won’t let anyone talk me out of repaying the favor I owe to him, not even you, Splash!

Tikal: You are definitely making a big mistake here, Scorch…

Scorch: Quiet! Who asked YOU!?


Splash: …

*Sigh* I was really hoping it wouldn’t have to come to this, but you leave me no choice. Scorch, you’re my sister, and I love you, but as long as you continue to associate yourself with the likes of Dr. Robotnik, then I will do anything in my power to stop you.


Scorch: Oh, just you go ahead and try it!

Holding out the palm of her hand, Scorch angrily “fired” a flame blast at Splash, but she quickly countered it with a water blast, dousing the fire attack, “splashing” Scorch, and knocking her backwards.

Scorch: Uhhhhhhhh!

Splash: Now, as for YOU… *Glares at Robotnik*

Robotnik: …!

As Splash set her sights on Robotnik, the mad doctor began hastily running towards the Egg Walker, but before he could get back inside of it, Splash shot it with a hydro blast, causing its engine components to short-circuit and explode.

Robotnik: WHAT!? NO WAY! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING!

Splash: Well, believe it! Now, Doctor, it’s time you’ve finally gotten what’s coming to you! I’m normally a pacifist at heart, but you’ve pushed me too far!

Robotnik: Ahhhh! W-Wait, Splash! *Gets on his knees* G-Go easy on me! Please! I-I’m defenseless! Please?

Splash: Yes, I could see that. Without your machine, you’re just as defenseless as those poor Chao that you were about to kill!

Robotnik: Y-Yes, I know! I’m… I’m sorry, I was wrong! Please forgive me! *Starts bowing* I’ll leave quietly, without anymore trouble! I’ll leave this Chao Garden in peace! I-I really mean it this time! Honest! P-Please, just give me a chance!

Splash: …

Tikal: …

Mighty: …

Robotnik’s showing remorse? Wow. Now I’ve seen everything.


Splash: …

I have to admit, Dr. Robotnik… Your apology has certainly surprised me. I guess I could let you go this time… Just don’t let that happen again.


Robotnik: Y-Yes, of course! You have my promise!

After Splash was generous enough to let him go, Robotnik summoned the Egg Carrier III, then he and Scorch returned to it, seemingly getting ready for takeoff. Or were they?

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Surely, you didn't think it would be THAT easy, did you!?

Splash: WHAT!? Why, you…! You tricked me!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That's right, fool! Splash, you are, indeed, the very definition of naïve!

Splash: GRRR...

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA! As long as I’m up here, I no longer need that remote control switch to activate the Egg Carrier III’s laser cannon! Instead, I could simply do that, using the control panel! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Now, I’m going to make your end easy, by using it to send all three of you, as well as your precious Chao, to oblivion!

Staying true to his word, Dr. Robotnik activated the Egg Carrier III’s laser cannons through the control panel, and started charging them up, making sure they were at full power.

Tikal: NO! WE’VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING!

Mighty: I have an idea! I’ll be right back! *Runs off*

Splash: Alright, but please hurry!

A minute later…

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! The charge is complete! Prepare to meet your maker, you troublesome FOOLS!

Mighty: I’m back!

Just as Robotnik was firing the laser cannon, Mighty returned with a huge boulder, and tossed it into the cannon’s opening, causing it to get clogged.

Scorch: H-Huh!? What just happened, here!?

Robotnik: WHAT!? OH, NOOOOOOOOO!!! THE LASER CANNON HAS BEEN CLOGGED! W-WAIT! ABORT LAUNCH!!!

Unfortunately for them, it was too late. Due to the boulder’s jamming, the laser cannon ended up backfiring and blasting the Egg Carrier III instead, causing a huge explosion that sent both Scorch and Robotnik flying over the horizon.

Scorch: AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!

Robotnik: ARRRRGGGH!!! YOU’RE GOING TO REGRET THIS!!!

Tikal: Whew! Once again, that was too close!

Mighty: Yeah, THAT’S for sure. *Notices that Splash has a sad expression on her face* What’s the matter? We won, didn’t we?

Splash: Yes, but…I just hope Scorch is okay. I didn’t want to hurt to her…

Mighty: Well, that’s understandable, since she is your sister and everything.

Splash: Also, I just want the two of you to know...that Scorch isn’t truly a bad person. Aside from the negative energy that her gem has absorbed before she was released, she’s clearly being taken advantage of by that awful Dr. Robotnik. Whatever it takes, I’m going to see to it that his plans for world domination don’t succeed, and that my sister is free from his control!

Mighty: I’m glad to hear it. Oh, and I almost forgot to introduce myself. I’m Mighty, Mighty the Armadillo.

Tikal: My name is Tikal.

Splash: It’s a pleasure to meet you both.

Elsewhere, away from the Mystic Ruins… After Knuckles had finished dropping off Robotnik’s rejected creations, Orbot and Cubot to be repaired at Tails Workshop, he decided to head towards Carnival Island (which isn’t very far from Angel Island), where the office of the Chaotix Detective Agency is located. He knew that if he’s to stop Robotnik’s plan this time around, then he was going to need all the help that he could get.

Knuckles: *Knocks on the door* Hello? Is anybody there?

Charmy: *From inside* TEAM CHAOTIX!

Vector: They’re detectives you want on your siiiiide!

Espio: Their directives, tracking down your crime!

Knuckles: …Well, that certainly answers the question. *Knocks again* Hello!? Can you guys hear me in there!?

Charmy: Come along for the ride!

Espio: Truth can run, but not hide!

Vector: For long ‘da game is on NOOOOOWW!

Knuckles: Oh, for Pete’s sake…!

Annoyed by the lack of a response, Knuckles decided to punch the door open, knocking it down in the process.

Vector: Whoa! Good grief, Knuckles! Ya evah heard of knockin’!? Ya didn’t hafta bus’ the door down!

Knuckles: Actually, I DID knock, but you probably couldn’t hear it over the music, as well as your terrible singing!

Vector: Whadda ya mean “terrible singin’”!? We happen ta be pros when it comes ta ‘dis sorta thing!

Knuckles: I think you should just stick to your detective work. No offense, but you three have GOT to be some of the worst singers on the planet!

Charmy: That wasn’t very nice!

Espio: None taken…by me, at least.

Vector: So, exactly whadda ya here for? Certainly, ya didn’t come all ‘dis way just ta insult us?

Knuckles: Well, I came here, because Robotnik’s returned, and needless to say, he’s up to no good again. So, I’m going to need you guys’ help to stop his plans once again.

Vector: It figures. Even though he’s been gone for a whole year, I just knew he’d be showin’ his face again sooner or later.

Charmy: Hee hee, “bee showing his face”. Get it? *Snickers*

Knuckles: …

Espio: …

Vector: …

Charmy: Hee hee, sorry. Couldn’t resist.

Vector: Yeah, ya could NEVAH resist.

Espio: So, is Robotnik after the Master Emerald again, or what?

Knuckles: Not that I know of, but I’ll explain everything on the way out.

Vector: A’right then. C’mon, boys! Let’s get ta work!

So then, Knuckles and the Chaotix Team ran out of the office at full speed, ready to stop Dr. Robotnik’s world domination plans once again. So far, two of the three Elemental Gems have been claimed, with both Goddesses awakened.  With one on the side of good, and the other on the side of evil, that only leaves one more to obtain: The Ice Element Gem. Which side will claim it? The Chaotix, Dr. Robotnik, or perhaps neither? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Part 6

When we last left off, Scorch's younger sister, Splash, the Goddess of Water, was finally awakened after being sealed up for the past thousand years or so. After she was released, Robotnik tried coaxing her to join him and Scorch on their quest to conquer the world. However, due to her kind-hearted nature, Splash was thoroughly disgusted by the doctor's evil intentions, and declined his offer. Splash then took the opportunity to try convincing her sister to not to associate with Dr. Robotnik anymore, stating that he sees her as nothing more than a pawn. Unfortunately, Splash's and Mighty's words fell on deaf ears, as Scorch felt that she was obligated to return the favor that was done for her.

Afterwards, they had a short battle, and Scorch was easily defeated and overpowered by Splash, since her control over the fire element was no match for Splash's power over the water element. Additionally, Splash used her hydro abilities to make Robotnik's Egg Walker shortcircuit and explode, which surprisingly had the evil doctor on his knees, begging for mercy. Being the kind-hearted soul that she is, Splash forgave him. However, she soon learned that it was nothing more than an act, as Robotnik attempted to use the Egg Carrier III's laser cannon to destroy her, as well as Mighty, Tikal, and the enter Chao Garden. Before Robotnik could fire it, Mighty clogged the laser cannon with a boulder, causing it to backfire and explode, destroying the Egg Carrier III and sending both Scorch and Robotnik flying over the horizon.

Elsewhere, Knuckles made his way over to Carnival Island, where the office of the Chaotix Detective Agency was located. He intended to enlist their help in foiling Dr. Robotnik's plans once again, as they've done quite a few times in the past. With them by his side, the race for the Ice Element Gem has begun, but the question still stands: Which side will claim it? Will it be Knuckles and the Chaotix, Dr. Robotnik, or perhaps someone else? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power!


Vector: So, what 'cher tellin' us, is that Robotnik released some ancient Fire Goddess from an ol' legend, and he's tryin' to use 'er powers to conquer the world?

Knuckles: Yes. Not only that, but according to what his robots told me, there are also two other gems that contain one of the three Elemental Goddesses; one with power over the water element, and the other over ice. I've already fought one of them myself, and if the other two are anywhere near as powerful, then, well…that's not exactly a good thing.

Charmy: …

Are you trying to tell us that you got beat up by a girl? *Snickers*


Knuckles: WHAT!? No, that is NOT what I'm-

Charmy: Knuckles got beat up by a girl, Knuckles got beat up by a girl! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Knuckles: Shut up! I did not! Our battle ended in a draw! NEITHER of us won the battle, because of the fact that the volcano started to cave in before we could finish! Also, Charmy, if you were to fight Scorch for yourself, I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be having anything to laugh about!

Charmy: …

Hee hee hee, "bee having anything to laugh about". Get it?


Knuckles: *Anime fall*

Espio: *Same*

Vector: *Same*

Charmy: Hee hee! Sorry, but you kinda set me up for that one, you know!

Knuckles: Whatever.

Espio: Anyway, back to the subject at hand… Do you have any idea where these gems could be located, Knuckles?

Knuckles: I'm not entirely sure of their exact locations, but all I do know, is that they're somewhere on Angel Island. I'm pretty sure we could find them with the emerald detector that Tails has given me.

Vector: A'ight, cool. 'Den we're all set! C'mon, boys! Let's get movin'!

Wasting no time, Knuckles and the Chaotix took off at high speed, bound for the nearby Angel Island, in search of the remaining Elemental Gem. Using the radar that Tails lent to him, Knuckles managed to detect one of the Elemental Gems, and pinpointed its location at the Mystic Ruins. When they got there, however, they ran into Mighty, Tikal, and Splash, who are also hunting down the Ice Element Gem to keep it out of Dr. Robotnik's evil grasp.

Vector: Ah, hey you guys! Whatta coincidence, bumpin' into you here!

Tikal: Hello.

Mighty: Hey. Long time no see.

Charmy: Hee hee hee! So, Mighty, were you and Tikal making out, or what? *Snickers*

Tikal: H-Huh!? *Blushes*

Mighty: *Same* Oh, VERY funny, Charmy!

Charmy: Yeah, I know, wasn't it? *Notices Splash* Who are you?

Splash: Me? I'm Splash, the Goddess of Water. And you are?

Charmy: I'm Charmy Bee.

Espio: I'm Espio the Chameleon.

Vector: Vector the Crocodile!

Knuckles: Knuckles the Echidna.

Vector: 'N' togetha, we are… TEAM CHAOTIX!

Splash: I see. It's a pleasure to meet you all.

Espio: Likewise.

Knuckles: Wait a second, did you say that you were the Goddess of Water? I guess that explains why you look exactly like-

Splash: Scorch? Well, yes, that is to be expected, since I'm her twin sister.

Charmy: Hee hee, "to bee expected". Get it? *Snickers*

Splash: …

Yes, I get it! *Giggles* Oh, my! That has to "bee" one of the funniest things I've heard in the past thousand years! *Giggles again*


Charmy: Hee hee hee!


Wait a minute, did you say you were over a thousand!? Wow… You are really, REALLY old!


Splash: *A sad expression appears on her face*

...

Yes, I am…thank you for reminding me.


Charmy: Aww, come on, Splash... There's no need to be sad. I mean, after all, you still look really, REALLY pretty.

Splash: Why, thank you. That's nice of you to say.

Charmy: You're welcome.


By the way, did you notice that I said "bee" in that sentence? *Snickers*


Splash: *Giggles* Yes, I sure did!

Knuckles: …

Mighty: …


Tikal: …

Espio: …

Vector: …

Someone actually finds Charmy's bee puns funny? Wow. I think Hell has officially frozen ovah, ya guys.


Espio: Yes, but speaking of "frozen", shouldn't we go ahead and start looking for that Ice Element Gem?

Splash: Yes, indeed we should. I'd hate to know what would happen if it got into the filthy hands of Dr. Robotnik. He's made it plainly clear that he'd do nothing but cause pain and suffering if he were to take over this world. That's something that I cannot, and WILL not allow!

Knuckles: …

Wow. You're not at ALL like your sister, are you?


Splash: It's not her fault. As Scorch was getting released from her gem, she most likely absorbed some of Robotnik's negative energy. That's in addition to the fact that he's taking advantage of her. It's already bad enough that he's doing this to one of my sisters, and I won't let him do that to another!

Knuckles: Okay, then let's go ahead and get that gem before he does. According to the radar, it's located somewhere at the Ice Cap Zone.

Splash: The Ice Cap Zone…? Oh, great… I should have figured…

Vector: Yeah… This ain't good for me 'n' Espio, eitha… But if we're ta get 'dat gem before Robotnik does, then we're gonna hafta suck it up!

Espio: Right.

Knuckles: There's a passage in the cave that'll lead us right to it. Follow me.

So then, the seven of them hurried through the cave, bound for the cold, frigid Ice Cap Zone, where the final Elemental Gem was said to be located. However, little did they know that they were being watched from around the corner by two certain criminals…

Nack: HAHAHAHA! Did 'ja hear 'dat, Bean? One o' 'dose gems they're lookin' for is at 'da Ice Cap Zone!

Bean: Heh heh heh! Yep, I heard. Are you thinking what I'm thinking, Fang?

Nack: Ya beddah believe I am! Let's go ahead 'n' find 'dat gem before 'dey do! 'Dat way, we could sell it at 'da jewelry market 'n' make MILLIONS off've it!

Bean: Good idea, but instead of trying to beat them to the punch, why don't we wait for them to gather it for us? It'll definitely save us the trouble of searching for it ourselves, and all we'll need to do is take it from them! How does that sound?

Nack: HAHAHAHAHA! I think it sounds perfect! 'Dat'll definitely be MUCH easiah 'den tryin' to hunt it down ourselves! I really like 'da way ya think, Bean! C'mon, let's go ahead 'n' start followin' 'em!

Putting their plan into action, Nack and Bean ran off and began following Knuckles, the Chaotix, Tikal, and Splash to the Ice Cap Zone, unnoticed, waiting to swipe the Ice Element Gem from right under their noses as soon as they get the chance.

Charmy: Hey, Splash, do you wanna hear this next joke? It's really, REALLY funny!

Splash: *Shivering* O-Okay, s-s-sure…

Charmy: Okay! Let's say there's a school of bees, right?

Splash: Mm hmm…

Charmy: Then some of them get in trouble for doing something bad. What is it called when bees get in trouble at school?

Mighty: …

Oh, boy… It's that old joke again.


Espio: *Shivering* Y-Yes… It's the very same one that was used to distract you, while we tried pulling your "wig" off to reveal that you were Sonic in disguise.

Mighty: Don't remind me. -__-;;

Splash: Umm, let's see… It's called "beeing bad", right? *Giggles*

Charmy: Hee hee hee! You're close, but no.

Splash: Hmm, well... I'm not sure.

Charmy: It's called… "Misbeehaving"! Get it? *Snickers*

Splash: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Yes, I certainly do! Oh, Charmy, you definitely have a natural talent for this sort of thing, for sure!

Knuckles: …

Mighty: …


Tikal: …

Espio: …

Vector: …

Good grief… Now 'dat 'dere's someone around ta laugh at all 'is stupid jokes, he's gotten even WORSE!


Knuckles: Yeah, that's for sure. If Heavy had come with us, he wouldn't like this one bit.

Charmy: Well, Heavy's a jerk, so I don't care what he thinks!

Splash: Who is "Heavy"?

Vector: Heavy and Bomb are creations of Dr. Robotnik's that've decided ta turn against 'im 'n' join our Chaotix team. They used ta work as 'is assistant robo-mechanics, but now they mostly spend time ovah at Tails' Workshop.

Charmy: Yeah. Heavy's really, really mean, but Bomb is nice.

Splash: I see.

Nack: Oh, fa cryin' out loud…! Will 'dese people go ahead 'n' get movin' already!?

Tikal: Huh!? What was that!?

Nack: Ah, crap!

As Tikal turned around to look, Nack and Bean quickly hid around the corner, barely managing to avoid detection.

Bean: Way to go, Nack! You almost blew our cover!

Nack: Ah, shaddap. 'Da important thing, is 'dat I didn't, a'ight?

Mighty: Are you okay, Tikal?

Tikal: Yes, I'm fine. I just thought I heard something, that's all. In any case, why don't we keep moving?

As the heroes (and villains) got closer to their destination, the weather began to get more treacherous, as a blizzard began to occur. Following the signal of Tails' emerald detector, they eventually came across a crystallized cavern, where the Ice Element Gem was located.

Vector: BOY, 'm I glad ta be inside! It's freakin' FREEZIN' out there!

Splash: I agree… I almost turned into an ice cube, and I mean literally!

Charmy: Hey, Knuckles, what does the scouter, I mean radar say about the gem? Is it in here somewhere?

Knuckles: Yes. As a matter of fact, this thing's going crazy! According to this, the gem seems to be moving right in this direction!

Mighty: Seriously?

Tikal: Hmm? How could this be? Has someone already found it!?

Splash: Oh, no… I certainly hope it wasn't Dr. Robotnik!

Espio: If it is, then we'd better be prepared to fight!

???: Hey, who's there?

To their surprise, it wasn't Dr. Robotnik. It was, in fact, a tan colored polar bear, wearing a red hat, a green scarf, and brown gloves and boots.

Charmy: Ahhhh! L-Look, you guys! It's a polar bear! You're…not gonna try to eat us or anything, are you?

???: Come to think of it, I haven't eaten all day…

Charmy: *Hides beehind Vector*

???: Heh heh heh! That was a joke, okay?

Charmy: Oh, good!

Knuckles: Wait a second, I know you… You're Bark the Polar Bear, aren't you?

Bark: Yep. It's been a while, hasn't it? I haven't seen you and Espio since the day we fought in that tournament a while back. So, what brings you guys over here?

Espio: There's a special gem that we're looking for, which is said to contain power over the ice element. According to Knuckles' radar, it's in this cave somewhere. Have you seen it around, by any chance?

Bark: As a matter of fact, I have. *Takes off his hat and pulls out a white gem with a cold mist around it* Is this what you're looking for?

Splash: Yes, that's the one! I'm SO relieved to know that Dr. Robotnik hasn't gotten his hands on it yet!

???: Oh, yeah? Well, I wouldn't celebrate jus' yet if I was you, sistah!

Knuckles: Nack and Bean!?

Tikal: So, I was right… We WERE being followed!

Nack: Ya got 'DAT right!

Mighty: What do you two want!?

Bean: Isn't it obvious? We're here for the gem, of course!

Nack: 'Dat's right! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Thank ya very much, chumps, for takin' 'da time ta hunt down 'dat gem for us! It was preddy dang nice o' ya ta do so!

Bean: Yep. It definitely saved US the trouble of having to do it ourselves!

Nack: Now, go ahead 'n' hand it ovah! Or else!

Bark: Or else WHAT?

Nack: HAHAHAHAHA! Oh, man… I jus' LOVE it when people say 'dat! *Takes out his gun and points it*

Just when things were looking up for our heroes, Nack and Bean make yet another unexpected appearance, this time, bent on obtaining the Ice Element Gem. Which side will emerge victorious and release the legendary Ice Goddess? The heroes or the villains? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Part 7

On the last chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power, Knuckles enlisted the help of the Chaotix team in order to put a stop to Dr. Robotnik’s plans for world domination once again. After explaining the situation to them, they hurried towards the Mystic Ruins to obtain the Water Element Gem. Upon their arrival, they ran into Mighty and Tikal, who’ve already released Splash from her imprisonment within the gem. With all seven heroes banded together, they set a course for the Ice Cap Zone, where the final Elemental Gem was located. However, they were unknowingly being followed by Nack the Weasel and Bean the Dynamite, who are also bent on obtaining the Ice Element Gem for their own greedy purposes.

Eventually, Knuckles, the Chaotix, Tikal, and Splash made their way into a crystallized cave, where they ran into Bark the Polar Bear, who happened to have the Ice Elemental Gem in his possession. Before he had the chance to give it to them, Nack and Bean showed up to claim the gem for themselves. Which side will emerge victorious? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!


Nack: Yeah, so whassit gonna be, chumps? Ya eitha hand ovah ‘da gem, or I’ll bussa cap in ya! Got it?

Splash: Who ARE you two, and what do you want with my sister’s gem!?

Mighty: Ugh, PLEASE don’t tell me that you were stupid enough to make yet ANOTHER deal with Robotnik…

Nack: Ah, shaddap! Ta answer ‘da question here, babe, ‘da name’s Nack, Nack the Weasel! Or Fang the Sniper, I don’t care which one ya call me.

Bean: And I’m Bean the Dynamite. To answer the other question, no, we DIDN’T make another deal with Robotnik; we’re doing this for ourselves.

Nack: Knowin’ how much ‘da jewelry market would pay ‘fa somethin’ as rare as ‘dat ice gem, we’re gonna sell it ‘n’ make a truck load o’ cash off’ve it! ‘N’ ‘dere ain’t nothin’ you’re gonna do ta stop us!

Splash: So, in other words, the two of you are just common thieves?

Bean: Pretty much.

Nack: Now, ah’m not gonna say it again! Hand it ovah, or ah’mma bussa cap ‘n’ every single one o’ yas, y’hear? *Clicks the gun*

Bark: …

Yeah, you know what? Your threats don’t mean squat to me, so piss off! I’m NOT letting you have it! Understand?


Nack: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Y’know, I was hopin’ you’d say somethin’ like ‘dat! ‘Cause now, I get ta blow ya freakin’ brains out!

Bark: Here, hold this! *Tosses the gem to Splash*

Splash: *Catches it*

Just as Nack was getting ready to pull the trigger, Bark quickly dashed towards him, punching Nack and sending him flying.

Nack: AH, CRAAAAAAAAAP!!! *Crashes through the wall*

Bark: *Turns toward Bean* Now, it’s YOUR turn!

Bean:  You just go ahead and try it! It’s time you’ve learned the TRUE meaning of the words “Dynamite Pow-“

Before Bean could finish his sentence, Bark did the same thing to Bean, sending him flying into the wall along with Nack.

Bark: And there’s plenty more where THAT came from!

Nack: *Gets back up* Don’t leddit go ta ya head, just ‘cause ya managed ta get one lucky shot!

Bean: *Gets back up, too* Exactly! Try THIS on for size!

After lighting the bomb’s fuse, Bean threw it at them, causing an explosion of smoke that clouded the area. In addition to making them cough, it also blocked the heroes’ vision. Taking advantage of the opportunity, Bean quickly snatched the Ice Element Gem away from Splash.

Splash: W-What!? Hey!

Nack: HAHAHAHAHA! Good one, Bean! C’mon, let’s use ‘grab ‘dis jet sled ovah here ‘n’ SCRAM!

Bean: Right! So long, suckers! HAHAHAHAHA!

While the area was still foggy, Nack and Bean quickly hopped onto Bark’s jet-propelled sled and took off, leaving the heroes in their dust.

Bark: GRRR… Why, those punk thieves! First, they take the gem, and now they’ve taken my jet sled! Do they have ANY idea how much money I paid for that thing!?

Charmy: Would you happen to have another one that we could use?

Bark: Yeah, but it’s a normal sled. It doesn’t have a jet engine like the one they just stole.

Knuckles: That’ll do. It’s better than nothing. Come on, we’ve got to catch up to those two before it’s too late!

Splash: Before we go, would you happen to have a spare coat that I could borrow for the time being?

Charmy: “For the time beeing”. *Snickers*

Splash: *Giggles*

Bark: Yeah, there’s one in the closet. Help yourself.

Splash: Thanks!

After putting on a blue Eskimo-like coat, the heroes quickly hopped onto the sled, pushed it down the hill, and began pursuing the two criminals in order to reclaim the Ice Element Gem.

Charmy: WHEEEEEEEEE!!! THIS IS REALLY, REALLY FUN! WHOO HOOOOOOOOO!!! YEAH, ROCK & ROLL!!!

Vector: Holy crap! ‘Dis might not be a jet sled like ‘de otha one, but it’s still pretty freakin’ fast!

Elsewhere…

Nack: HAHAHAHAHA! Ah, man… ‘Dat was too easy! Getting’ away from ‘dose chumps was like takin’ candy from a baby!

Bean: Heh heh heh! Yep! I’ll bet at this point, we’re like, MILES ahead of them! There’s just NO possible way they’ll catch up to us!

Nack: HAHAHAHA! Ya got ‘DAT right! Preddy soon, ‘da two’ve us are gonna be filthy, stinkin’ RICH! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Bean: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

While the two crooks were laughing maniacally, they ended up letting their guard down, decreasing the jet sled’s speed in the process. Unfortunately for them, that mistake caused Knuckles and the rest of the heroes to catch up to them on their non-jet-propelled sled.

Vector: Ya find somethin’ funny!?

Nack: *Looks back* AH, CRAP! ‘Dey caught up ta us!

Splash: That’s right! Now, I’m only going to ask you two once to kindly hand over the gem you’ve stolen from us!

Nack: HAHAHAHAHAHA! Not on ya life, toots! Ya snooze, ya lose! *Takes out his gun* EAT LEAD, CHUMPS! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

After taking out his pistol, Nack started rapidly firing bullets at the heroes. Fortunately, they managed to dodge them by moving from side to side in the sled. Additionally, they also had Bean’s bombs to dodge. This went on for a while, until a large fireball was sudden shot in front of them, causing both sleds to skid and go out of control.

Nack: AH, CRAP! AH, CRAAAAAAAAP!!!

Charmy: AAAAAAHH!!! WE’RE GONNA CRASH!!!

Vector: BRACE YOURSELVES!!!

As they all got towards the bottom of the hill, they began to skid, and were able to come to a complete stop, narrowly managing to prevent their sleds from crashing into one another.

???: HAHAHAHAHAHA! Well, well… What have we here?

Splash: That voice...! Scorch!

Scorch: *Hovers down* Ah, Splash… You know me too well.

Bark: Who’s she? Is she like, your evil twin or what?

Splash: Something like that…

Tikal: You were the one who shot that fireball at us, weren’t you!?

Scorch: Gee, nothing gets by YOU, does it?


Nack: Ah, great… It’s ‘da fiyah dame again!

Bean: Ugh, JUST who we needed to see…

Scorch: HAHAHAHAHA… It’s nice to see you, too, boys! Now, let’s just cut straight to chase, shall we? The Ice Element Gem… Hand it over.

Nack: Noddah chance, sistah! We stole it fair ‘n’ square! Now, get outta ‘da way before I hafta bussa cap in ya!

Scorch: …

Uhhh, what? What does that even MEAN?


Bean: It’s a slang term, meaning that he’s gonna shoot you. But of course, I wouldn’t expect an old lady to know that. *Snickers*

Scorch:  EXCUSE me!? What did you say!?

Nack: He called ‘ju an old hag, ‘dat’s what! Why don’t ‘cha try cleanin’ ya ears out? No, beddah yet, why don’t ‘cha getta hearin’ aid, or somethin’… GRANDMA!? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Bean: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Scorch: *Her flames begin to heat up as she boils with anger*

Knuckles: Here we go again…

Splash: If I were you two, I’d run.

Bean: What’s she gonna do? Whip us with a cane? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Nack: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Scorch: OH THAT DOES IT!!!

Angered by their words, Scorch powered up a ball of fire at the palm of her hand, blasted Nack and Bean, and sending them flying over the horizon.

Bean: UHHHHHHH!!!

Nack: YOU HAVEN’T SEEN ‘DA LAST’VE US!!!

Scorch: The NERVE of these people, I swear! I don’t know how ANYONE could even have the audacity to call someone who looks THIS young and pretty an “old hag”! *Notices the Ice Element Gem, which is falling out of the sky, from Nack’s grasp* HAHAHAHA… It’s all mine now! I never did get along with Slush very well, but for Dr. Robotnik, I’ll gladly do this.

Before Scorch could claim the Ice Element Gem, Splash quickly rushed over there and grabbed it herself, before she had the chance.

Scorch: You give that back! Otherwise, I’ll have to take it by force!

Splash: Scorch, I don’t want to fight with you!

Scorch: That’s understandable. I wouldn’t want to fight me, either.

Splash: Enough of this! Can’t you see that you’re being taken advantage of!? I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Robotnik is NOT your friend! He doesn’t care ANYTHING about you! In his mind, the only thing that matters is what you can do for him! He sees you as nothing more than a pawn, a puppet, a plaything! Open your eyes, Scorch! You’re being used!

Knuckles: Exactly! You were right there when he cast two of his own robots aside like garbage! What makes you think he wouldn’t do the same to you!?

Scorch: According to Dr. Robotnik, those robots were cast aside because of how weak and inferior they were, along with their sheer stupidity and incompetence. Don’t lump me with those weaklings! I’m nothing like them, so Dr. Robotnik would never do that to me! Like I said before, I owe everything to him, and I won’t let anyone talk me out of repaying the favor! Not you, Splash, or anybody else!

Vector: Yeah, y’know what? Fine! Believe whatcha wanna believe! But when Robotnik decides ta turn on ya, don’t come cryin’ ta us!

Scorch: GRRR… SHUT UP! SHUT UUUUUPPP!!!

Fueled by blind rage, Scorch threw a fireball at the group, only for Splash to try countering it with one of her hydro blasts. Unfortunately, however, due to the Ice Cap Zone’s climate, it abruptly froze and turned into a sheet of ice, rendering her powers useless. As a result, the heroes had no choice but to dodge the attack.

Charmy: Hey, I didn’t know you had ice powers, Splash! I thought you were the Water Goddess?

Splash: That’s strange, this has never happened before… It must be because of this cold weather!

Scorch: HAHAHAHAHA! That’s right, little sis! You might have beaten me before, but now the tables have turned!

Splash: I’m sorry, you guys, but I’m going to have to sit this one out. Since my powers are useless in this weather, I’d just be a burden on you guys. I’ll just stand here and hold the Ice Element Gem for you.

Mighty: Okay, no problem.

Espio: Just leave it to us.

Charmy: Hee hee, “bee a burden”. Get it?

Splash: *Giggles* You just never cease to amaze me with those puns of yours.

Unable to take part in the battle due to the cold climate, Splash had no choice but to sit back and watch as the battle unfolded. While she was busy watching her comrades’ close, epic battle against Scorch, she began to lose sight of what was happening around her, as a grabber-claw suddenly snatched the Ice Element Gem right out of her hands.

Splash: Not again!

Robotnik: *Takes the gem off of the Egg –O- Matic’s grabber claw* HAHAHAHAHAHA! That was a little TOO easy!

Splash: GRRR… Dr. Robotnik! I should've known!

Robotnik: That’s right! It looks like we meet again, my dear Splash! Thank you very much for finding that Ice Element Gem for me! That was quite the generous of you! Now, I’m yet another step closer to achieving my goal! Also, Splash, it isn’t too late to change your mind. You’re still welcome to join us, if you’d like.

Splash: Forget it! I’d NEVER help someone like you!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, well, whatever. It was worth a try, I guess. Perhaps that other sister of yours, whose name I forget, will be a suitable replacement?

Splash: No! You leave her out of this!

Robotnik: I don’t think you’re in the position to be giving me orders! Ice Goddess! I summon you!

Robotnik raised the Ice Element Gem and dropped it, in an attempt to get it to fall into the snow to release the Ice Goddess. Splash dived after the gem and managed to catch it, but unfortunately, she accidently fumbled it, causing it to fall out of her hand and right into the snow.

Splash: Oh, no!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

After that, a sudden flash of light occurred, which got everyone’s attention. A sudden burst of snow erupted from the ground, and formed into the Ice Goddess, who, of course, looks nearly identical to her sisters, but with slight differences. Rather than being orange or blue, she instead had a white coloring, with a cold, icy mist around her. Additionally, she wears a blue and white dress with that has diamond shapes on it (just like her sisters’), golden sandals and ring bracelets, and of course, a golden tiara that her gem is kept in.

???: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Finally, I’m free at last!

Robotnik: So, you must be the legendary Ice Goddess! Scorch told me all about you.

???: That’s me. I’m Slush, the Goddess of Ice. You’re Dr. Robotnik, correct?

Robotnik: That’s right! I am Doctor Ivo Robotnik, the greatest scientific mind in the world! I’d like to take this opportunity to offer you a chance to join us in our conquest! Think of its benefits: The world will be ours to control and do with as we please! What do you say to this proposition?

Slush: …

Splash: No, Slush! Don’t listen to him!

Slush: (Hmm, you know, this gives me an idea. Perhaps if I join this guy, I could find the clues that I need…) Okay, sure. Why not?

Everyone: WHAT!?

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Excellent! We’re glad to have you on board!

Splash: Slush, how could you!?

Robotnik: Now, Slush, why don’t you go ahead and lend your sister a hand in destroying these meddlesome fools who keep interfering with my plans?

Slush: With pleasure. *Looks toward Splash* It’s nothing personal, big sis, believe me. It’s just that…I’ve got some unfinished business to attend to. You’ll know all about it when the time comes.

Using her arctic powers, Slush blasted all of the heroes, including Splash, freezing them solid and turning them into ice cubes.

Slush: Hmm hmm hmm hmm! You see what I bring to the party, Doctor? As you just witnessed, I could defeat any of my opponents in a brief instead, unlike a certain hothead we both know.

Scorch: Oh, can it! I didn’t need your help for that! I could have beaten Knuckles, Splash, and every one of them with my eyes closed!

Slush: Yeah, uh huh. Sure you could.

Scorch: Do YOU want a piece of me!?

Robotnik: Now, now, ladies… Just calm down for a moment, okay? I know that the two of you don’t…quite see eye-to-eye, but just this once, why not try putting your differences aside? If we’re to succeed with our goal of conquering this world, then I’m going to need your cooperation. Teamwork is most essential to this plan.

Scorch: …

Fine.


Slush: Sure, whatever.

Robotnik: Excellent, I’m glad we’re on the same page. Now, why don’t we report back to the base?

Slush: Okay. You two go on ahead, I’ll be with you in just a sec.

Robotnik: Very well. *Hovers into the air*

Scorch: *Same*

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Now that those Chaotix fools are out of the picture, all that’s left is that irritating hedgehog, Sonic, as well as Tails and a few others! Very soon, the world is going to be ours, all OURS! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! *Takes off*

Scorch: *Same*

Slush: Yes, you laugh while you can, you bloated buffoon. Laugh while you can…

At last, Slush, the legendary Goddess of Ice, has been awakened! Despite the efforts of Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the others, she has chosen to side with Dr. Robotnik… Or has she? Apparently, the mysterious Goddess seems to have an agenda of her own.  What could she be planning, exactly? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Re: Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power

Part 8

Previously, on Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power, Bark the Polar Bear got into a fight with Nack and Bean, who attempted to steal the Ice Element Gem from under everyone’s noses. Just when Bark seemed to have the upper hand, Bean threw a smoke bomb, clouding everyone’s vision. He and Nack took advantage of the situation, and made off with the Ice Element Gem, stealing Bark’s jet sled in the process. However, the area soon cleared, and the heroes were able to use a non-jet-propelled sled to catch up to them. Eventually, a burst of fire halted their chase, causing their sleds to go out of control and nearly crash. The fire attack came from none other than Scorch, who was bent on obtaining the Ice Element Gem for Dr. Robotnik. She managed to defeat Nack and Bean with ease, and turned her sights over to Knuckles, the Chaotix, and company. Splash once again attempted to convince her older sister to abandon Dr. Robotnik and his evil ways, but her words went unheeded, just as they did before. After that, another battle began, but Splash was unable to participate, due to the fact that her power over the water element was rendered useless in the Ice Cap Zone’s freezing cold climate.

While the battle was going on, Dr. Robotnik, in his Egg –O- Matic Hovercraft, came out of nowhere and swiped the Ice Element Gem right from Splash’s hands. Shortly afterwards, he tried dropping the gem into the snow, in an attempt to release Slush, the Goddess of Ice. Splash tried diving after the gem to catch it, but she fumbled it, causing it to fall right into the snow, just as Dr. Robotnik had previously planned. Upon her revival, the mad doctor tried coaxing Slush to join him and Scorch in their conquest, but unlike Splash, she accepted his offer. She quickly joined in the battle, using her arctic powers to freeze all of the heroes in sheets of ice, including her own sister, Splash. Shortly afterward, it was revealed that Slush had an agenda of her own. Whose side is she truly on? Find out on this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!


Slush: *Watches Scorch and Robotnik leave* From here, I’d say they’re far enough. Now, if I could just find a few sticks and some rocks, I should be able to create a campfire. That way, I could thaw them out. *Looks around* Ah, just what I need…

After finding the sticks and stones that she needed, Slush began setting up a campfire right away. After starting the fire, she kept a certain distance from it, in order to prevent the fire’s warmth from melting her. About ten minutes later, the ice that she had frozen everyone in was completely thawed.

Vector: Ah, man… BOY, ‘m I glad ta be outta there!

Espio: Tell me about it… I thought I was going to freeze to death!

Charmy: Hee hee, “bee outta there”. *Snickers*

Splash: Hmm hmm hmm hmm. Those puns of yours are so cute.

Knuckles: *Notices Slush* Oh, so it’s YOU again!

Vector: She was the one who froze us in that block of ice! Let’s get ‘er boys!

Tikal: Hold on a second... She DID freeze us, yes, but don’t forget that she’s also chosen to come back and help us.

Mighty: Hmm, yeah, good point. So, what’s going on, exactly? If you’re on Robotnik’s side, then why is it that you helped us?

Splash: I’m guessing that you've decided not to join him after all?

Slush: …

Alright, I’ll explain everything. The truth is… I never had any intention of joining Dr. Robotnik. This is only part of my charade. I’m only pretending to be the same side as him, so I could find some answers and uncover the truth. While I was still inside of my gem, I heard everything that was going on. I’ve noticed that no matter what you’ve said to her so far, Scorch just isn’t convinced that Robotnik’s playing her for a fool. So, I’ve decided to go undercover and pose as the doctor’s ally, so that I could gather the evidence that I need in secrecy, without him suspecting anything.


Vector: …

Y’know, that makes perfect sense, but why’d ‘ja feel the need ta freeze in those blocks of ice!?


Slush: I’m sorry. You see… I had to make things look real. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have brought it.

Vector: Ah, okay. Apology accepted on my part. Anyway, it’s nice ta meet ‘cha, Slush. I’m Vector the Crocodile.

*Everyone else (except for Splash) introduces themselves, too*

Slush: It’s very ice, I mean NICE to meet you all.

Charmy: By the way, Slush… I heard Scorch say that the two of you don’t get along. If you hate each other so much, then how come you’re trying to help her?

Slush: …

Well, yes, that’s true. We do argue a lot, but I don’t hate her. I mean, after all, Scorch IS my sister, and I care about her deeply, but you didn’t hear this from me. Don’t ever, EVER tell her that I said that. Got it?


Charmy: Alright, if you say so.

Vector: A’ight then.  Anyway, you said you’re tryin’ to find evidence, right? So, why don’t ‘cha go ahead ‘n’ use this recordin’ device? *Tosses it to her* That way, ‘f Robotnik says anything ‘dat hints that ‘e’s usin’ Scorch, you’ll be able to get it on tape, ‘n’ there’ll be nothin’ he could say to deny it.

Slush: Perfect, that’s just what I needed! Thank you so much!

Vector: No problem. Oh, and take this, too. *Tosses her a walkie-talkie* ‘N’ that way, you can let us know what else Robotnik might be plannin’.

Slush: *Catches it* Alright.

Charmy: Hee hee hee, “bee planning”. Get it, Splash? *Snickers*

Splash: *Giggles*

Knuckles: *Facepalm* Splash, PLEASE don’t encourage him.

Espio: You took the words right out of my mouth.

Splash: I’m sorry, but I can’t help it if I find them funny, as well.

Slush: Well, I’m gonna get going now. But before I go… *Walks over to Bark*

Bark: Hmm?

Slush: *Kisses him on the cheek* That was for taking such good care of my gem all this time.

Bark: O-Oh, it was…nothing, I guess.

Charmy: *Snickers*

Slush: Well, and with that, I’m off. I’ll see you later. *Winks at him, and then leaves*

Charmy: You know, Bark, I think she liiiiikes you. *Snickers*

Bark: No way. You’re jumping to conclusions, here. What you saw was nothing more than a friendly “thank-you” type of kiss, and that was it.

Charmy: Then why did she wink at you, hmm? *Snickers again*

Vector: Ah, c’mon, Charmy… Don’t start. Just don’t.

Charmy: Hee hee, sorry. Couldn’t resist.

Meanwhile, just as Slush was taking off to go search for Dr. Robotnik’s base, she ran into Scorch, who came back to find her.

Scorch: Ah, there you are, little sis. Dr. Robotnik was beginning to grow a little impatient, so I came back to find you. I’ll take it that you got lost on the way, after taking care of the “unfinished business” that you needed to attend to?

Slush: Uhhh, yes, that’s it! I got lost, that’s all! I think the Doctor could have at LEAST left me with some directions before he just took off like that!

Scorch: I see. Don’t worry, I know where it is. Follow me, and I’ll lead you right to it.

Slush: Okay, sure. (Whew… For a second, I thought I was busted!)

Scorch: I know it’s hard, keeping up with MY speed, but do try not to fall behind, okay?

Slush: …

You CANNOT be serious. You aren’t anywhere NEAR as fast as I am!


Scorch: Oh, yeah!? You wanna bet!?

Slush: You’re on!

Scorch and Slush glared at one another, with lightning coming from their eyes (just like when people get into arguments in anime). After they were finished glaring at one another, the two sisters began to race towards Dr. Robotnik’s base at full speed. Eventually, they managed to get there, with the race ending in a draw.

Scorch: You…got lucky that time, Slush. Had I been going at full speed, I would have left you clear in the dust!

Slush: Pffft. I doubt it.

Robotnik: Ah, so you’ve finally made it! Exactly where have you been, anyway?

Slush: Who, me? I just had a little…errand to run, that’s all, but enough about that. This world domination plan of yours… How do you plan to put it into effect, exactly?

Robotnik: Ah, I’m glad you asked! I have a little something I’d like to show you both. This way, please.

Robotnik led the two Elemental Goddesses down the hall, and into a large hangar, where a large, spherical ship was contained.

Robotnik: *Flips on the switch* Behold, my intergalactic masterpiece… The Death Egg III!

Slush: Whoa…

Scorch: Amazing…

Robotnik: HAHAHAHA… Indeed so, ladies! Indeed so! The Death Egg III, as its name implies, is the third of its kind that I’ve ever constructed. The first two were destroyed in the past, so I had no choice but to create another. Using the original blueprints that I made for the first one, I was able to construct the Death Egg III with ease. However, this one possesses unimaginable power, surpassing that of the previous models. Inside of this space station, is a special machine that I built, which I intend to use to brainwash all the inhabitants of this planet, making them into mindless slaves who’ll serve us as their almighty rulers!

Scorch: Hmm hmm hmm! Sounds like a plan, Doctor! I like the way you think.

Slush: What she said.

Robotnik: Before then, however, just in case those Chaotix fools have managed to free themselves from your icy prison, Slush, I’m going to use the Death Egg III’s laser cannon to send them, as well as the rest of Floating Island’s inhabitants, to oblivion! With them out of the picture, as well as Sonic the Hedgehog and his remaining allies, this world will finally be OURS to control! HAHAHAHAHAHA… HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Scorch: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Slush: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA… (What a psycho.)

Scorch: So, is it finished, Dr. Robotnik? When will this thing be ready for launch?

Robotnik: It will be ready as soon as I get ahold of the Master Emerald.

Slush: “Master Emerald”?

Scorch: It’s some jewel that Knuckles says he protects.

Robotnik: Yes, a very large jewel, which has the ability to neutralize the power of the Chaos Emeralds. In addition to that, it also possesses an unlimited amount of power, which I intend to harness, and use to power the Death Egg III. As soon as I have it within my grasp, it’ll be ready for takeoff! After I activate the laser cannons, Knuckles and the rest of those blithering idiots will be blown to pieces before they even know what hit them! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Scorch: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Slush: Eh heh heh heh heh! I’m sure they will!

Robotnik: …

Hmm, come to think of it, there just may be a few adjustments I need to make. While I’m doing that, would one of you mind retrieving the Master Emerald for me?


Scorch: Not at all. Leave it to me, Dr. Robotnik.

Slush: There’s some business that I need to attend to, as well. Please excuse me.

After that, the two sisters quickly left the Death Egg III’s hangar. Scorch rushed out the base, and was on her way to Angel Island to steal the Master Emerald. Slush, on the other hand, stayed behind to report her discoveries about Robotnik’s sinister plan.

Vector: *Through the communicator* Slush, ‘dis ‘is Vector. Do ya copy?

Slush: Yes, I hear you loud and clear. I was unable to find any evidence that Robotnik’s using Scorch, but I did, however, manage to get information about his plan, straight out of his mouth. He seems to have constructed this large spaceship, which I believe he calls the “Death Egg III” or something like that. He wants to use the Master Emerald as a power source in order to get the thing to float, but that’s not even the worst part: Robotnik said that he plans to use it to brainwash everybody on this planet into serving him, and before he goes through with THAT, he plans to destroy Floating Island and kill everyone on it!

Everyone: WHAAAAAAT!?

Vector: You’ve gotta be kiddin’ me!

Slush: This is no joke, I’m afraid. In fact, Scorch is on her way to steal the Master Emerald right now, as we speak!

Knuckles: Over my dead body, she is! I’ll NEVER allow Robotnik to destroy this island!

Espio: Correct me if I’m wrong, Knuckles, but didn’t Heavy, Bomb, and Wechnia install a security system for the Master Emerald?

Knuckles: Yeah, they did, but there’s a chance that Scorch might find a way around it! Even I’ve done it at one point, like the time I needed to use the Master Emerald to seal Mephiles! I know a shortcut back to the altar. If we act now, we should be able to get there before Scorch does!

Vector: A’ight, then what’re we waitin’ for? Let’s get movin’!

After being informed of Dr. Robotnik’s diabolical plot, Knuckles, the Chaotix, Splash, Tikal, and Bark hurried over to the altar, taking the aforementioned shortcut. Even while taking this shortcut, will our heroes be able to get to the altar before Scorch does? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Part 9

On the last chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power, Slush, in a surprising turn of events, decided to thaw the Chaotix and company out after she had previously frozen them. More surprising than that, she explained to the heroes that she never had any intention of joining Dr. Robotnik in his conquest; instead, it was merely a charade, where she’s playing the role of a spy, trying to gather the evidence that she needs to prove that the doctor is merely using Scorch, as well as getting first-hand information about Robotnik’s master plan.

As it turns out, he plans to not only destroy Angel Island, but to brainwash the Earth’s inhabitants, as well! Will Knuckles, the Chaotix, and company be able to stop Scorch from getting ahold of the Master Emerald? Is Robotnik truly using Scorch as Splash and the others suspect? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!


Slush: *Walking down the hall* Alright, now to see what else the old doctor’s up to…

Robotnik: *From the hangar* HAHAHAHAHAHAHA… Yes, it’s all going according to plan!

Slush: I think I’d better listen in on this. Who knows what new information I could find if he thinks he’s by himself? *Takes out her recording device and heads toward the hangar, and peeks into it through the entrance*

Robotnik: As soon as I get ahold of the Master Emerald, all of my problems will be taken care of! Very soon, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the rest of those meddlesome pests who’ve gotten in my way so many times, will finally meet their ends! With those fools out of the picture, I’ll finally be free to conquer this world and build the Robotnik Empire like I’ve always dreamed of! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Also, now that I think about it… Once my enemies are out of the way, and once I’ve become the ruler of this world by brainwashing the Earth’s inhabitants into serving me, I won’t have any need for the Elemental Goddesses anymore. As a matter of fact, Scorch and Slush could die along WITH those Chaotix fools for all I care! Their usefulness will have run its course by then, anyway!

Slush: …! (So, it’s true… Everything that Splash and the others have been saying about Robotnik taking advantage of Scorch all this time has just been confirmed right now! This is even worse than I imagined!)

Robotnik: You know, since I’m pretty much thinking aloud here, and no one’s around to hear it, I might as well say that I never had any intention of sharing the power with any of them to begin with. It’s called the ROBOTNIK Empire for a reason, meaning that I’M the one who’s going to rule this world! Not Scorch, not Slush, but ME, Doctor Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik! HAHAHAHAHA! Poor, poor Scorch… I have to give her some credit, though. After all, she was SO loyal… Probably even moreso than any underling I’ve ever had! It’s too bad she’s going to die along with everyone else when I destroy Angel Island! It’s nothing personal; it’s just that I won’t have any need for her anymore. She’s served her purpose. Also, I have to give her even MORE credit… This plan probably wouldn’t have been possible without her, so to show my gratitude, I’ll be sure to make her death quick and painless! HAHAHAHAHAHA… HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Slush: …! *Gasps*

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA… Wait a minute! Who’s there!?

Fearing that she’d be discovered, Slush hastily fled the scene. By the time Robotnik turned his head to look towards the doorway, she was already gone

Slush: *Runs down the hallway at full speed, using the walkie-talkie* Vector, come in! Do you copy?

Vector: *Answers* Yep, I hear ya loud ‘n’ clear, Slush. How’s the investigation goin’?

Slush: I’ve found it... I found all the evidence that we need to prove that Robotnik’s been using Scorch all along!

Vector: Well, ‘dat sure didn’t take very long now, did it? Good work!

Slush: Has Scorch arrived on the scene yet? I need to get this information to her as quickly as possible!

Vector: Nope. So far, we haven’t seen ‘er, but I’m pretty sure she’ll be here in a li’l bit.

Slush: Okay, good. That’s just what I needed to know. I’ll be over there in a few, as well, with the evidence.

Vector: A’ight, cool.

???: Well, well… What have we here?

Slush: *Turns around and gasps* …! Doctor Robotnik! *Hangs up*

Robotnik: So, YOU must have been the one I heard snooping around, eavesdropping on my private conversation…

Slush: “Private”? Give me a break. Anyone within a ten-mile radius could have heard you!

Robotnik: Well, Slush; it would appear as if you’ve finally shown your true colors! As a matter of fact, things are starting to become quite clear to me now. This certainly explains where you’ve disappeared to earlier, and why you’ve been gone for so long. You’ve been consorting with the enemy from the very beginning, working as a spy and watching my every move!

Slush: You got THAT right! Also, YOU’RE one to talk about someone showing their “true colors”, you conniving, mustached monkey! I heard everything you said, loud and clear! Splash was right… You really HAVE been using Scorch all this time! Your plan from the start was to kill her along WITH Splash and all the others while destroying Floating Island!

Robotnik: “From the start”? This was a last-minute decision, entirely improvised.

Slush: “Improvised”, my ass! I heard you say that you never had any intention whatsoever of sharing that power with Scorch after you’ve conquered the world! Had I or Splash actually decided to join you, then you would have done the same to us!

Robotnik: Now, let me guess… You’re going to tell her, aren’t you?

Slush: You better believe I am.

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Go right ahead, tell her if you wish! She isn’t going to believe it! If even that goody-two-shoes, Splash couldn’t convince her, what makes you think she’ll listen to you, of all people? From what I’ve seen, the two of you don’t seem to get along very well. So, basically, it’ll be your word against mine.

Slush: You’re right. Words alone may not be enough to convince her, but evidence certainly can. *Holds up the recording device*

Robotnik: Wait a minute! Do you mean to tell me that you’ve recorded all of that!?

Slush: That’s right, Doctor. I took the liberty of recording each and every word you’ve spoken back there. So, there won’t be any use in trying to deny it.

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA… You’re quite the clever one, aren’t you? Very good! I must congratulate you for your efforts, Slush! Unfortunately for you, however, you know far too much, and I can’t let you leave this base, knowing that information.

Slush: Hmph, I figured you’d say something like that. Let’s go ahead and settle this; right here, right now! *Holds out the palm of her hand and gets ready to blast him*

Robotnik: Wait a minute, Slush! I know a better place than this, where we could have our battle!

Slush: Is that so?

Robotnik: Yes. Wouldn’t you prefer to fight in a more spacious area? It’s a lot better than being cramped in this hallway, that’s for sure.

Slush: …

Well, alright then. Lead the way.


Robotnik: Very well. This way, please.

Upon Robotnik’s request to fight in a “more spacious area”, Slush anxiously followed him down the hallway. About a minute later, the two of them reach their destination.

Robotnik: *Unlocks the automatic door* After you, my dear. It’s ladies first.

Slush: Oh, can the phony gentlemen act, will you? Why don’t YOU go first? I want to be sure that you aren’t trying to lure me into some kind of trap.

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA… Quite the paranoid one, aren’t we? Well, alright then. As you wish. *Goes inside*

Slush: *Follows* Alright, Robotnik. I’m ready when you are.

Robotnik: (HAHAHAHAHA… Yes. I’ve got her right where I want her.) W-What the…!? S-Scorch!? I didn’t think you’d be back so soon!

Slush: *Looks*

As soon as she turned around to look, Robotnik quickly took out a stun-gun and blasted Slush, rendering her immobilized.

Slush: UHHHHHHH! *Kneels down* W-What’s going on!? I… I can’t move!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! You walked RIGHT into my trap, JUST as I knew you would! I can’t BELIEVE you were actually foolish enough to fall for that one! You’re just like your sisters, Slush; incredibly naïve!

Slush: Ghhh…! Robotnik! You…!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You’ve played an ingenious little game, my clever little friend, but now it’s all over! *Walks towards Slush* I don’t think you’ll be needing THIS anymore! *Confiscates the recording device*

Slush: What are you doing!?

After confiscating the recording device that Vector gave her, Robotnik dropped it on the ground and stepped on it, breaking it into pieces.

Slush: NOOOOOO!

Robotnik: Oh, whoops! It would appear as if I’ve stepped on it! How clumsy of me! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA…

Slush: GRRR… You won’t get away with this, Robotnik!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, I believe I already have!

Vector: *Through the walkie-talkie* Yo, Slush! Scorch has just been spotted! She’s on ‘er way ovah here right now! How much longer ‘r’ ya gonna be, gettin’ ovah here wit’ that evidence? Not that I mean ta rush ya or anything; I’m just sayin’ that we could use it as soon as possible!

Robotnik: *Takes the walkie-talkie away from Slush* Well, let’s just say that there are certain…circumstances preventing that. HAHAHAHAHAHA…

Vector: Wayda minute! ‘Dat voice… ‘Dis is Robotnik, ain’t it!?

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA! That’s right! The one and only Dr. Ivo Robotnik, scientific genius extraordinaire with an IQ of 300!

Vector: Ah, crud! If YOU answered, ‘den ‘dat must mean…!

Robotnik: Yes, you guessed it! It means that I’ve caught onto your little scheme, that’s what!

Splash: *Quickly snatches the walkie-talkie from Vector* What have you done with my sister, you creep!?

Robotnik: Other than simply immobilizing her, nothing much. She’s right here, if you’d like to speak to her. *Holds the walkie-talkie up to Slush’s face*

Slush: Hi, sis… It’s me. Up until now, everything went smoothly. I was able to find the concrete evidence I needed to prove that Robotnik’s been using Scorch, but…he took the device and crushed it!

Everyone: WHAT!?

Slush: I’m… I’m sorry. I never meant for this to happen. I totally failed you guys…

Splash: Aww, Slush… Don’t say that. You did your best, and that’s all that counts.

Scorch: *Hovers down to the altar*

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA… It’s quite a shame that her best wasn’t enough now, was it? Now that I’ve destroyed the one piece of evidence that you had to use against me, there’s nothing else you could possibly do to convince Scorch that I saw her as nothing more than a mere pawn to be manipulated, much like a certain echidna we all know!

Scorch: …!

Knuckles: What’d you say!?

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA! You heard me, fool! This is no different from the time we first met, when I managed to deceive you into thinking that Sonic and Tails have come to your island the steal the Master Emerald! You pretty much believed everything that I had to tell you, without being even the LEAST bit skeptical about it! HAHAHAHAHAHA! It was the same case with Scorch this time around! As a matter of fact, she was even EASIER to manipulate! Her years of captivity within that gem are what made it all possible! She was even foolish enough to believe that I had any intention of sharing power with her after I’ve conquered this world! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: There’s a reason as to why it’s called the “ROBOTNIK Empire”, meaning that I’M the one who’s going to rule this world! Oh, and beauty of it all is that she’s not even going to live long enough to guess the truth! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Scorch: *Boiling with anger*

Vector: Heh heh heh! ‘Da joke’s on you, ya mustached moron! Why don’t I go ahead ‘n’ let ‘cha in on a li’l secret? Remembuh when I said that Scorch was on ‘er way ovah? Well, she’s here, ‘n’ she heard EVERY word!

Robotnik: W-WHAT!? NO WAY! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS!!!

Charmy: Hee hee hee!

Espio: Hmm hmm hmm! It would appear as if the mission was a success after all!

Mighty: Yeah. Not in the way it was originally intended, but Slush still managed to get the job done!

Robotnik: Don’t get too excited, you fools! I’ve still got another ace in the hole. Speaking of Slush, I’ve still got her right here, captured and immobilized! If you want to see her again, unharmed, then bring me the Master Emerald within one hour, or else!

Knuckles: Or else WHAT!?

Robotnik: Then she’ll literally turn into a pile of slush! *Turns up the heat*

Slush: Ghhhh…! It’s…too…hot! AAAAHHHH!

Splash: SLUSH!!!

Scorch: …!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA… HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

After he was finished laughing maniacally, Robotnik broke contact with the Chaotix on the walkie-talkie, turned off the lights, and left the room while Slush was still there, gradually melting.

Splash:  NO! Slush is going to DIE if we don’t do something! We’ve got to get to Robotnik’s base so we could help her!

Bark: Right, but one question: Exactly where IS his base, anyway?

Knuckles: Hmm… That’s a good question. He most likely switched bases after his other one blew up, so I’m not sure where his new one is.

Scorch: Don’t worry, I know where it is. Robotnik’s fortress is above this island, high into the sky.

Knuckles: Oh, that’s just GREAT…

???: Perhaps we could be of some assistance?

They all looked into the direction of the robotic voice and found Heavy and Bomb, along with Sonic, Tails, Amy, Ray, Orbot, and Cubot.

Knuckles: Oh, it’s you guys! We’re glad you could make it.

Heavy: It took some time, but we finally managed to repair those two morons that you brought to the Workshop.

Cubot: ‘Ey! ‘Dat ain’t very nice, pard!

Orbot: Yeah, you take that back!

Splash: Judging by the rudeness, I’m going to take a wild guess and say that the teapot-looking thing is Heavy?

Charmy Yep that would bee him. Get it?

Splash: *Giggles*

Heavy: …Still making an idiot of yourself, I see.

Charmy: And YOU’RE still a jerk, I see.

Tails: Hey, there’s no time for arguing, you guys! Let’s head for Robotnik’s airbase right away!

Knuckles: Okay, but how are we going to get there?

Tails: We could fly there by using my plane, the X-Tornado.

Knuckles: Perfect! Alright, let’s go!

???: ‘Ey, hold it!

Knuckles: Nack!? Bean!? What do YOU two want!? If you’re here for the Master Emerald, you’d best turn back now!

Scorch: Oh, it’s YOU again. I’m not in the mood to deal with you two right now, so you’d better get lost, before I have to burn you to a crisp again!

Nack: Slow ya role, sistah! We ain’t hear ta start nutin. We’re here, ‘cause we wanna come wit’ ‘chu guys!

Bean: Yeah. After all, WE’VE got a bone to pick with Robotnik, too, you know.

Sonic: Okay then, come along. Let’s blast through with Sonic speed!

So then, the heroes (and anti-heroes) climbed aboard the X-Tornado, bound for Robotnik’s airbase. Will they be able to put a stop to the evil doctor’s plans once again, and rescue Slush before it’s too late? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Last time, Dr. Robotnik revealed his master plan to destroy Angel Island, and came to the conclusion that he wouldn’t have any need for the Elemental Goddesses anymore once he achieves his goal. He also stated that when he uses the Death Egg III to destroy Angel Island, he plans to kill not only Knuckles, the Chaotix and company, but Scorch, as well. Slush, who’s working as a spy, overheard and this and got it on tape, using the recording device that was given to her by Vector. Just when she had the concrete evidence she needed to prove that Robotnik had been manipulating Scorch the entire time, she ended up getting caught and lured into a trap by the evil doctor. Additionally, he also confiscated the recording device and crushed it at the bottom of his feet, leaving Slush without the evidence that she needed. However, Robotnik unknowingly provided new evidence himself, by relaying a new message to the Chaotix and company, which Scorch overheard as soon as she arrived.

Knowing that Scorch wasn’t going to bring the Master Emerald to him after learning the truth, Robotnik made a slight change in plans. He decided to hold Slush, whom he trapped with his stun-gun, for ransom. He told the heroes that if they want to see Slush return safely, then Knuckles has to hand over the Master Emerald. Shortly afterwards, their mechanical companions, Heavy and Bomb arrived on the scene, along with Sonic, Tails, Ray, Amy, as well as Orbot and Cubot, who Robotnik had previously cast aside. Tails then suggested that they reach Robotnik’s airbase by taking his plane, the X-Tornado, which was big enough for everyone to fit. Nack the Weasel and Bean the Dynamite, who also had a score to settle with Robotnik, decided to come along for the ride, as well. With all heroes and anti-heroes banded together, do they have what it takes to stop the mad doctor’s plans this time around? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!


Sonic: So, Fang and Bean… What’s the story with you two? Did Robotnik trick you into making another deal with him, or what? *Snickers*

Nack: Ah, shaddap! It ain’t nutin’ like ‘dat at all! It’s just ‘dat ‘e still owes us money from a while back!

Bean: Exactly! We had him cornered last time, but then…something happened.

Sonic: That “something”, being that he tricked you again, right? *Snickers again*

Nack: You ain’t funny, a’ight!? *Takes out his gun* Say anudduh word about it, ‘n’ bussa cap ‘n ya! Goddit!? *Clicks it*

Sonic: Alright, already. Yeesh…

Tikal: *Looks towards Scorch, who has a sad expression on her face* Are you okay?

Scorch: I’m…I’m fine. Just…fine.

Tikal: You certainly don’t sound like it…

Scorch: Whatever. *Turns around and crosses her arms* Why do YOU care, anyway?


Splash: Scorch, I can’t imagine how you must be feeling right now. It’s okay to cry, you know. There’s no shame in it. Just let it out…

Scorch:  Pfffft. Oh, please. This is ME we’re talking about here, Splash. L-Like I’d ever have any reason to…to- *Quickly bursts into tears before finishing her sentence*

Splash: *Hugs Scorch and pats her on the back*

Scorch: Y-You…you guys were right all along! Dr. Robotnik…he really HAS been using me the entire time! H-How…how could I have been…so stupid!? I…should’ve seen this from the start!

Heavy: Robotnik, using someone? Gee, imagine that. It certainly MUST take a rocket scientist to figure THAT one out. You are just BRIMMING with common sense, aren’t you?

Bomb: Heavy, for once, can you NOT be an anus?


Splash: *Glares at Heavy* You know, Charmy told me all about you, and from what I’ve seen so far, everything he said is true. Honestly, I haven’t heard you say ONE nice thing to or about anyone since you got here! Scorch was just used and betrayed by the one person that she considered as a friend, and you certainly aren’t helping by making sarcastic remarks like that! If you aren’t going to do anything other than be an insensitive jerk, ridiculing everyone around you just for the sake of doing it, then don’t say anything at all! Keep your snide comments to yourself! It’s as simple as that!

Heavy: …

What are you, my mother?


Suddenly, a vibration occurred, causing almost everyone on the ship to fall over.

Bomb: What was that!?

Tails: There’s a bunch of Badniks and enemy airships everywhere! We’re under attack, you guys!

Knuckles: Doesn’t this ship have any weapons and fire power to use against them?

Tails: Yeah, but I could only focus on the ones that are right in front of us. I’m going to need someone to get on the deck to cover the X-Tornado in case they happen to attack us from the other sides.

Vector: No problem! Just leave that ta us! Once we start a job, we finish ‘da job! Dat’s our policy! We’re Team Chaotix!

Scorch: I’ll help, too. I’m sure my powers will be of great use when taking those ships down.

Charmy: Hee hee, “bee of great use”. Get it?

Splash: *Giggles* Aren’t those puns of his just hilarious?

Scorch: …

Uhhh, yeah. Whatever.


Nack: Ah’mma get in on ‘de action, too! *Loads his gun*

While Tails was piloting the plane and handling all the enemies within the range of the X-Tornado’s volkan cannons, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and all the others climbed aboard the deck to deal with all the other Badniks and enemy fighter planes that Robotnik sent their way, which were out of Tails’ range.

Nack: *Blasting them with a Tommy-gun* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! EAT LEAD, YA BUCKET O’ BOLTS! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Bean: DYNAMITE POWER! *Tosses a bomb and blows some of them to pieces*

Charmy: Look! I can see their parachutes! They’re okay…

Everyone: …

Vector: No more Dragon Ball Z fa you, Charmy.

Charmy: Aww…

After a while, everyone was able to successfully fight off all of the Badniks, and Tails was able to land the X-Tornado safely in front of Robotnik’s airbase.

Tails: Alright, so we’re finally here…

Charmy: …Performin’ for you! If ya know the words, you should join in, too! Put your hands together if ya wanna clap as we take ya through this Monkey Rap!

Everyone: …

Charmy: What? I like that song, and Tails just reminded me of it!

Heavy: Honestly, Charmy, not even two facepalms are enough to describe your stupidity.

Charmy: PBBBTHH! *Sticks his tongue at Heavy*

Splash: Why can’t you just leave him alone!? He hasn’t done a thing to you, and you’re treating him bad for no reason!

Heavy: Oh, piss off already, will you? The last thing I need right now, aside from Charmy’s presence is for someone else to play the “moral police” role. Why don’t you mind your own business? Last time I checked, I wasn’t talking to you.

Splash: You couldn’t be an even bigger prick if you tried, Heavy. Seriously, I don’t know how everyone else around here manages to put up with you. You are the SINGLE most disrespectful person I’ve ever met! Dr. Robotnik is bad to the core, but even HE’S shown better manners than YOU ever have!

Sonic: I agree with you, but speaking of Ro-butt-nik, shouldn’t we go ahead and get moving, so we could stop him?

Splash: You’re right. Slush’s life hangs in the balance, even as we speak. We’ve got to save her as soon as possible!


Bark: Yeah. Speaking of a which, did you bring the Master Emerald with you, Knuckles?

Knuckles: What, and risk my island getting destroyed? I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure we could rescue Slush without it. If she’s, by any chance, trapped behind one of those steel doors in Robotnik’s base, I could just punch it down to get her out of there.

Bark: Good point. So could I, actually.

Vector: Alright, then whadda ya say we get movin’?

Espio: Yes, but we should proceed with caution. Robotnik may very well have traps set for us…

Vector: Yeah, but like I said before, there ain’t nothin’ Robotnik could dish out that WE can’t handle!

*They enter the base*

Mighty: I guess Robotnik didn’t have any traps set up after all. At least not that we know of. In any case, why don’t we go ahead and look around? Slush is bound to be around here somewhere.

Charmy: Hee hee hee, “bound to bee”. Get it? *Snickers*

Splash: *Giggles* Yes, yes, I get it, but now’s not the time. Let’s save the jokes for later, okay?

Charmy: Okay!

Heavy: THANK YOU.

Just as the heroes moved on and began to get deeper into the base, they ended up getting attacked by another swarm of Badniks.

Sonic: These things again? Ro-butt-nik outta get ahold of some better toys, you know.

Vector: C’mon, let’s take ‘em down!

Once again, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and company destroyed all the Badniks that came their way. Whenever they moved on to the next room, there were more robots waiting for them, and the cycle began to repeat itself, much to the annoyance of Scorch.

Scorch: AUGH! ENOUGH OF THESE GAMES, ROBOTNIK! GET OUT HERE AND FIGHT US YOURSELF! RIGHT NOW, YOU COWARD! *Holds out the palm of her hand and blasts all the Badniks, killing them in a fiery explosion*

Orbot: …

Whoa. Remind me not to get on HER bad side…


Cubot: Yer darn tootin’. ‘Dat Fire Goddess is purdy dang scareh when she gets mad.


Speakin’ of a which, what’s she mad about, anyway?


Everyone: …

*Everyone anime falls*

Cubot: What? Did I say somethin’ wrong, ‘r what?

Orbot: Were you not listening at ALL? Robotnik betrayed her, just as he did to us! He’s also holding her sister hostage!

Cubot: Oh, yah. I knew that.

Orbot: …Right.

Heavy: …

That comment I made about your stupidity, Charmy? I take it back. You're a genius compared to THIS guy.


Charmy: Gee, well thanks a lot.

Scorch: ROBOTNIK! I SAID GET OUT HERE!

Robotnik: *Enters* Here I am. Satisfied?

Splash: You tell us what you’ve done with Slush!

Robotnik: First, you show ME the Master Emerald.

Knuckles: Forget it! I know everything you’re trying to do, and I’ll never allow you to destroy my island!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA… I suppose Slush’s life means THAT little to you? Very well, then. *Takes out a remote control switch* Perhaps a little increase in temperature will change your mind? *Turns the knob*

Slush: *From a room down the hall* AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!

Splash: NOOOOOO!!! YOU LET HER GO!!!

After that, Splash quickly held out the palm of her hand, and used a hydro blast to knock the switch out of Robotnik’s hand, as well as making it shortcircuit.

Robotnik: ARGH! CURSES! For future reference, I’m DEFINITELY going to consider making my devices Splash-proof…

Sonic: Heh! Game over, Ro-butt-nik!

Bark: Oh, yeah. *Cracks his knuckles* It’s clobbering time!

Vector: Yeah! Let’s get ‘em!

No longer in control of the situation, Robotnik had no choice but to flee the scene. However, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and all the others started stampeding after him.  As they all gave chase to the doctor, stopped as soon as they came across the room that Slush was locked in. While they were turning their attention to that, Robotnik took that as his chance to sneak away.

Scorch: Slush? Is that you in there?

Slush: Y-Yes, it’s me… I’m glad you all finally made it. Now, can you…get me out of here, please? I don’t know how much longer I could withstand such hot temperatures… I’m on the verge of melting even now, as we speak!

Scorch: We’re on it.



Hold on a second, doesn’t this door require some kind of passcode?


Slush: Yeah, but sadly, I don’t remember it. Robotnik’s the only one who knows…

Bark: Ah, don’t worry. We’re gonna bust this door down instead!

Knuckles: Why don’t we do that at the count of three?

Cubot: ‘Dat door sher looks purdy dang sturdy…

At the count of three, they all rammed into the steel the door, and managed to knock it down, freeing Slush from her captivity.

Slush: T-Thank you, everyone…

Scorch: Anytime, little sis. Now, would you mind explaining something to me? I didn’t get to the altar in time to hear everything, so I don’t know all the details. Exactly why did Robotnik feel the need to capture you?

Slush: Because… I’ve been working against him from the start. I only joined him, so that I could…find the evidence I needed to prove…that he was using you. He…was determined to make sure…that I wouldn’t be around…to tell about it. Ironically, he ending up doing the very thing he was trying to keep me from doing.

Scorch: Ooh, I swear it… Robotnik’s going to pay dearly for this!

Slush: I’m glad…you’ve finally realized who the true enemy is, Scorch. *Slowly stands up* Come on…let’s go stop him, everyone. It’s time he’s experienced the wrath of the three Elemental Goddesses…first-hand!

Splash: Are you sure you’ll be able to fight in this condition? You don’t look so well…

Slush: Don’t worry, Splash… I’ll be- *Tries to walk, and ends up collapsing to the floor* …fine.

Vector: Maybe one o’ us could take ya back to the Ice Cap Zone, so ya could recuperate?

Slush: Sure…that’ll be fine. I just hope…that I’ll be back in time to join you in your battle against Robotnik…

Charmy: Hee hee, “bee fine” and “bee back in time”. Get it? *Snickers*

Splash: *Giggles*

Heavy: *Facepalm*

Vector: So, uhh… Anyway, who’s gonna do it? I’d bring ‘er ovah there myself, but bein’ a reptile ‘n’ all, I can’t handle cold places very well.

Espio: Same here, so I guess it’s out of the question for me, as well.

Bark: I’ll do it. *Picks Slush up and carries her in his arms*

Slush: *Blushes* Thank you… I appreciate it.

Bark: O-Oh, it was, uhh…nothing.

Charmy: *Snickers*

Slush:  *Rubs his arm* You’re so strong…

Bark: *Starts turning red* T-Thanks…

Slush: *Giggles* You’re welcome.

Sonic: The two of you are always welcome to get a room, ya know!

Ray: Heh heh heh! I was about to say the same thing!

Bark: Oh, VERY funny!

Charmy: Bark and Slush, sittin’ in a tree! K-I-S-S-I-N-G-! First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in a baby carriage! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Slush: You keep quiet, you little insect!

Robotnik: *Through the intercom* Ladies and gentlemen! May I have your undivided attention please? I know that you’re all eager to wrap things up, so I’m going to give you the opportunity to do just that. Meet me at the top of this fortress, so we could finally settle this! Once and for all, we’ll finally put an end to this long, drawn-out battle! What do you say? Are you up for it?

Vector: Ya beddah believe we are!

Robotnik:  Good, good! I’m glad to hear it! Again, I’ll be waiting for you at the top of this fortress. Come if you dare! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…

Sonic: Heh! Sounds like an invitation to party! Okay, Ro-butt-nik! Bring it on!

Tails: I’m gonna use the X-Tornado to fly Bark and Slush to the Ice Cap Zone. I’ll be back to meet up with  you guys again after she’s finished recuperating.

Nack: Me ‘n’ Bean are gonna be a li’l late to ‘da battle, too. First, we’re gonna scour ‘da base ta look for ‘da money Robotnik owes us. ‘F by any chance we can’t find it, ‘den we’ll be right up ‘dere ta geddit from ‘de ol’ doc ‘imself!

Bean: Yeah. Either way, he’s gonna be sorry he ever cheated us!

Knuckles: Okay then. In the meantime, the rest of us are going to be fighting him atop the fortress! Come on, everyone, let’s go!

While Tails, Bark, Slush, Nack and Bean went to go handle their prior engagements, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and all the others headed up the stairway, bound for the rooftop of the airbase, where they’ll have their showdown against Dr. Robotnik. Will they be able to put a stop to his plans once again? Or will the crafty doctor manage to turn the tables on them? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Part 11

Last time on Elements of Power, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and all the others took Tails’ plane, the X-Tornado, in order to reach Dr. Robotnik’s base, which was said to be above Angel Island, high into the sky. On their way to the airbase, they encountered swarms of Badniks and enemy airships, which they were able to defeat with ease. As the heroes entered the base, they got attacked by another swarm of Badniks, and that process continued after each room they advanced to. However, it soon came to an end, as Scorch angrily demanded Robotnik to show himself, in which he did. In exchange for Slush’s safe return, Robotnik demanded the Master Emerald. Knuckles, knowing that the doctor intended to destroy his island, refused the offer, which caused Robotnik to take drastic measures.

He once again increased the temperature in the room that Slush was locked in; threatening to melt her if the Master Emerald wasn’t within his grasp. Luckily, Splash was able to knock the remote control from his hand with a hydro blast, making it shortcircuit in the process. After that, Robotnik hastily fled the room, with the heroes chasing him down. Although he got away, the heroes were able to come across the room that Slush was locked in, and freed her by busting the door down. Although Slush wanted to take part in their battle against Robotnik, she was unable to, due to the fact that she was weakened and on the verge of melting. However, Bark decided to take her back to the Ice Cap Zone to recuperate, and Tails volunteered to give them a ride to the Ice Cap Zone in his X-Tornado plane. Nack and Bean, on the other hand, decided to search around the base for the money that Robotnik owes them.


Now, all that’s left is for the heroes to confront Dr. Robotnik atop the airbase, so they could challenge him to a final epic showdown. Will they be able to thwart the doctor’s plans once again? Or will Robotnik find some way to outsmart the heroes and succeed with his sinister goal to conquer the world? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!

After going up the stairway, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the others went through a door and entered the rooftop to find Robotnik waiting for them inside of a large, mechanical dragon.


Robotnik: So, you finally made it! I must admit, that was a lot sooner than I expected…

Knuckles: Yeah, yeah, whatever. Let’s go. I’m ready to get this over with.

Robotnik: As am I. *Looks toward Heavy and Bomb* Hmph, I should have figured that you two traitors would be showing your faces again. I know I’ve already said this before, but this time, you’re going to pay DEARLY for the treason you’ve committed against me! Pay with your LIVES, that is!

Heavy: Ooh, I’m SO scared.

Scorch: Oh, please! You’re one to talk about treachery after what YOU did!

Robotnik: Oh?

Scorch: While making your plans to blow up Floating Island, you intended to kill ME along with everyone else! How could you!? I would have done anything for you, Dr. Robotnik… Even at the cost of my own life! THAT’S how grateful I was after you released me! Despite all that, you STILL chose to stab me in the back! You took advantage of me… You used me, you manipulated me! Along with that, you almost got Slush killed! As long as I live, I’ll NEVER forgive you for this!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA… Oh, that’s fine by me! Begging for YOUR forgiveness is one of the last things I’d EVER be caught dead doing! Now, enough of this small talk! You’ve all interfered with my plans for the LAST time! Now, prepare to meet your maker! It’s time you’ve witnessed the TRUE power of a REAL evil genius! The “Egg Wyvern” should be MORE than enough to deal with you meddlesome pests once and for all!

Vector: You want some!? Well, come ‘n’ get it!

Scorch quickly flew into the air after the Egg Wyvern and surrounded her fist with fire, getting ready to punch it. Before she could do that, however, the Egg Wyvern quickly flapped its wings and created a gust of wind, blowing her backwards.

Scorch: UHHHHHH! *Crashes into a wall*

Splash: Scorch!

Knuckles: Why don’t we all try attacking him at the same time, like we did before?

Heavy: What, so he could blow us into a wall, too? Yeah, that’s real smart. Obviously, the direct approach isn’t going to work. We’re going to need another strategy.

Knuckles: …You know, Heavy, it wouldn’t have killed you to say that WITHOUT the sarcasm!

Robotnik: GET A LOAD OF THIS!

As Robotnik opened the mouth of the Egg Wyvern to blow fire, everyone quickly spread out and managed to avoid the attack.

Robotnik: HAHAHA! Dodge THIS one if you can! *Makes the Egg Wyvern take a deep breath and blows an even larger fire blast at them*

Scorch: Oh, I don’t think so! *Gets in front of everyone and starts absorbing the attack*

Knuckles: This gives me an idea! While he’s busy blowing fire on her, he’s leaving himself open for us to attack him! Now’s our chance!

Heavy: Now THAT’S more like it. I knew you could think of a better strategy.

While the Robotnik was busy attacking Scorch, everyone else surrounded the Egg Wyvern and started attacking it. Unfortunately for them, their hits didn’t seem to have any effect.

Vector: What ‘da…!?

Charmy: Our attacks aren’t working!?

Espio: What’s going on!?

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That’s right, fools! I’ll tell you what’s going on: The Egg Wyvern was constructed with some of the toughest metal this planet has to offer! The Egg Wyvern’s cockpit is being protected by this metal, so there’s nothing you can do! Your puny little attacks don’t faze me one bit!

Mighty: GRRR…

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA! It looks like I’ve already won THIS battle! This is the day where I’ll finally have you fools out of my hair for good! Then, I’ll finally be free to conquer this world and build the Robotnik Empire! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Charmy: …

Umm, how could we be out of your hair when you don’t even have any? Well, except for that really, REALLY big mustache!


Robotnik: ARGH! It’s just a figure of speech! Now, enough of this ridiculous babble! It’s time I’ve put you out of your misery once and for all!

Amy: Great, just great! NOW what are we supposed to do if our attacks don’t work against him!?

Bomb: I have an idea. He needs to get close enough in order for me to pull this off, though.

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA! Take… THIS!!!

After making the Egg Wyvern do an aerial backflip, Robotnik made it swoop towards everyone at high speed, trying to ram into them. Seeing the opportunity to put his plan into action, Bomb quickly jumped up and started clinging to the Egg Wyvern’s face.

Robotnik: W-WHAT THE…!? What are you doing!? I can’t see! What are you trying to do, you imbecile!? Make me crash!?

Bomb: Hee hee hee hee! That’s an interesting idea, but no. I have something else in mind. It’s guaranteed to have…“explosive” results, if you DO catch my drift! *Starts glowing*

Splash: W-What!? He’s going to blow himself up!? But…won’t he die if that happens?

Heavy: Whenever Bomb explodes, he has the ability to regenerate himself, so there’s nothing to worry about.

Splash: Oh, I see.

Robotnik: ARGH! YOU’RE GOING TO REGRET THIS, YOU LITTLE PEST!

As Bomb continued to cling to the Egg Wyvern, Robotnik flew around in circles, desperately trying to shake him off, but to no avail. Eventually, Bomb began to glow, and he exploded on the Egg Wyvern, breaking the protective armor off of the cockpit, and leaving it open for everyone else to attack.

Robotnik: WHAT!? NO WAY! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING!!!

Mighty: Nice one, Bomb! Alright, everyone! Now’s our chance!

Now that the cockpit was no longer being guarded, everyone rushed towards the Egg Wyvern, and attacked it at the same time, dealing tons of damage to it in the process.

Sonic: HA! In your face! This is it, Ro-butt-nik! Prepare for another defeat!

Robotnik: GRRR… I haven’t even BEGUN to get started yet, you spiny blue pest! I’m just getting warmed up!

Scorch: “Warmed up”, you say? I’d say that “scorched” is more like it!

Knuckles: There you go again with the fire puns…

Robotnik: Try THIS on for size, fools!

Robotnik aimed used a crosshair to have them all locked on target, and then started firing missiles at them. Although they were able to dodge them, Robotnik still managed to destroy some of the foothold, leaving them with less space to avoid his attacks.

Vector: Ah, crud! ‘Dis ain’t good!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Yes, for YOU, that is! It’s rather convenient for me, however! Now, I’d LOVE to see how you’re going to dodge THIS one!

The Egg Wyvern took another deep breath, but rather than blowing fire like before, it instead blew a cold, icy mist at the heroes, attempting to freeze them in blocks of ice as Slush did before. However, Scorch quickly countered it with a fire blast, causing Robotnik’s ice beam to melt away.

Scorch: Surely, you could come up with something better than THAT, doctor? If not, then you’re clearly not as smart as I once thought you were.

Robotnik: Insolent fool! You can’t even BEGIN to comprehend MY pure genius! *Presses a button, opens the Egg Wyvern’s mouth, and starts charging up a laser cannon* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Even if you DO manage to dodge this one, that STILL won’t do you any good! If you make a move, it’ll destroy the rest of the foothold and leave you all stuck in one spot, and you’ll have nowhere else to run! Either way, you still lose! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! VICTORY IS MINE!

Mighty: Oh, great… It’s one of THESE again. I don’t have anything to clog his machine with this time!

Heavy: Maybe not, but I certainly do.

Just as Robotnik was getting ready to fire, Heavy aimed his arm into the air and launched his fist like a rocket, causing the Egg Wyvern’s laser cannon to get jammed.

Robotnik: W-WHAT!? NO! NOT AGAIN! ABORT LAUNCH!!!

Before Robotnik had the chance to abort it, the Egg Wyvern exploded and broke into pieces, leaving the doctor on the ground, burnt and banged up from the explosion.

Charmy: Wow! I never knew you could do that, Heavy! That was really, REALLY cool!

Heavy: Thanks. *Reconnects it back to his arm*

Scorch: Now, Dr. Robotnik… This is it! *Holds out the palm of her hand and charges up a fire attack* PREPARE TO DI-

Before Scorch could finish her sentence, his head popped out with a spring attached, revealing the fact that the “Robotnik” they fought was nothing more than a fake.

Everyone: WHAT!?

Robotnik: *Through the speaker* HAHAHAHAHA…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Once again, you fools have been tricked!

Vector: You’ve gotta be freakin’ kiddin’ me! Aftah all ‘dis time, we find out ‘dat it wasn’t even ‘da REAL Robotnik!?

Amy: Hmph! It’s rather typical of him! He’s such a coward!

Robotnik: While you fools were busy wasting your time fighting this decoy, I’ve been making preparations for the Death Egg III’s launch! That, of course, includes taking the Master Emerald!

Knuckles: WHAT!?

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Getting through that security system of yours couldn’t have been any easier! I didn’t know the password to turn off the electro-magnetic barrier, so I simply decided to break it instead! It certainly did the trick!

Knuckles: GRRR…

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! There’s nothing you could do now, other than sit back and watch, that is! Now, Knuckles, it’s time to kiss your precious island goodbye! HAHAHAHAHA… HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Shortly afterwards, a vibration occurred, and the Death Egg III began to launch.

Splash: NO! We’ve got to stop him!

Knuckles: Ugh, I really wish Tails would hurry up and get back here with that X-Tornado!

Charmy: Hey, look! There he is! *Points*

Knuckles: Well, THAT was convenient!

Tails: *Lands* We’re back, you guys!

Slush: We’re not too late, are we?

Espio: As it turns out, the “Robotnik” we’ve been fighting was nothing more than a decoy. A little while ago, the real Robotnik took the Master Emerald and headed into outer space with the Death Egg III!

Bark: Oh, that’s just GREAT…

Tails: Don’t worry; we’ll catch him in no time! Oh, by the way… Look who we ran into on the way back. *Points to Tiara as she steps out of the X-Tornado*

Amy: Oh, it’s HER.

Tiara: I’m not exactly thrilled to see YOU, either, you know.

Amy: Just stay away from MY Sonic, Boobowski!

Tiara: “Your” Sonic? Don’t make me laugh. He doesn’t even LIKE you.

Sonic: Oh, boy…

Amy: Yes, he does!

Tiara: No, he doesn’t!

*They glare at one another, with electric coming from their eyes (like when anime characters get into arguments)*

Tikal: Hey, hey! Please settle down, okay, you two? There’s no time for arguing! We have to go stop Dr. Robotnik before he destroys Angel Island and takes over the world!

Amy: …

Okay, fine.


Tiara: Yeah, whatever.

???: ‘Ey! Don’t take off widout us!

*They look in that direction and find Nack and Bean, carrying bags of money*

Scorch: So, you finally found the money that you were after?

Nack: Yep, now all ‘dat’s left is ta get revenge on Robotnik!

???: Don’t leave without us, either.

*Shadow, Rouge, and Omega come through the door*

Rouge: Long time, no see, everyone. How’ve you been?

Charmy: Hey, Knuckles, look, it’s your GIRLFRIEND. *Snickers*

Knuckles: You’re NOT funny, okay, Charmy?

Espio: We’re just fine, but the greetings will have to wait for the time being. Let’s hop aboard the X-Tornado so we could go after Robotnik.

Shadow: Understood. Also, there’s some more information we found while looking through the doctor’s database, which I’m sure you’ll want to hear. We’ll tell you about it on the way.

Sonic: Okay. Let’s blast through with Sonic speed!

Wasting no more time, everyone quickly entered the X-Tornado as it took off into space, chasing after the Death Egg III. Will they be able to stop Robotnik in time before he succeeds with his plot to destroy Angel Island and conquer the world? Also, what new information did Shadow, Rouge, and Omega uncover that's so important? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Part 12

Previously on Elements of Power, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the rest of the heroes confronted Dr. Robotnik on the airbase’s rooftop and engage him in a final showdown…or so they thought. After a long, hard battle against the evil doctor, they quickly learned that the “Robotnik” they’ve been facing was nothing more than a decoy that was meant to keep them busy while the real Robotnik buys enough time to sneak off, steal the Master Emerald, and use it to launch the Death Egg III into the sky. Fortunately, Tails and the others arrived back on the scene just in time, and they were able to use the X-Tornado to pursue the Death Egg III, and stop Robotnik’s plans. Shadow the Hedgehog, Rouge the Bat, and E-123 Omega also decided to come along for the ride. Additionally, they claim that they’ve found important information within Robotnik’s database. What did they find out about his plans, exactly? Also, will they be able to stop Robotnik’s plans from coming to fruition?  Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Vector: So, uhh… YOU’RE Tiara Boobowski, right? *Holds in a laugh*

Charmy: *Same*

Tiara: Yeah, that’s me. You sure do seem to be putting a lot of emphasis on my last name. Do you find something funny?

Vector: N-Nope! Not at all!

Charmy: Yep, what he said!

Tiara: Yeah, right. I could tell you’re just DYING to laugh. So, go right ahead. Laugh it up…if you dare.

Vector: Y-Ya’ve got us all wrong! I don’t think there’s nothin’ funny about-



OH, WHO AM I KIDDIN’!? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! *Falls to the ground*


Charmy: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! *Same*

Tiara: GRRR…

Vector: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! OH, WOW! ‘DIS IS PRICELESS! “BOOBOWSKI”!? THAT’S FREAKIN’ HILARIOUS! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Charmy: I CAN’T BREATHE, I CAN’T BREATHE!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Splash: This won’t end well…

Sonic: That’s for sure. If I were you two, I’d run.


Tiara: *Takes out a jeweled staff and raises it into the air*

Vector: Whoa, whoa! A’ight, we’re shuttin’ up, now! ^^;;

Charmy: Yep! We’re shutting up now! ^^;;

Tiara: Good. *Puts it away*

Espio: *Sweatdrops* Anyway… *Turns to Shadow, Rouge, and Omega* There was some valuable information that you found within Robotnik’s database? Why don’t you go ahead and fill us in?

Shadow: Very well. While searching through the doctor’s database, we came across what appears to be blueprints of some sort. Apparently, the doctor is working on a top-secret project.

Omega: Affirmative. According to the data we’ve obtained, Dr. Robotnik is constructing a bio-weapon; four of them, to be exact. They are female hedgehog lifeforms, whose codenames are: “EG-001”, “EG-002”, “EG-003”, and “EG-004”.

[Author’s note: The codenames are pronounced “Eee-Jee-Double-Oh-x”, with “x” representing the number at the end.]

Rouge: Yes, and while we’re on the subject… The sketches of the bio-weapons that he’s working on look strikingly similar to THESE three. *Points to Scorch, Splash, and Slush*

Everyone: HUH!?

Splash: Are…are you serious!?

Rouge: I’m afraid so.

Slush: …

Scorch: How strange. It’s the first time I’ve heard of this… But then again, this wouldn’t be the FIRST thing Robotnik’s kept me in the dark about now, would it? *Angrily clenches her fist*

Vector: So, what these blueprints ‘r’ basically sayin’, is that Robotnik’s tryin’ to create some of his own Elemental Goddesses?

Shadow: Most likely.

Knuckles: Meh, I highly doubt he’s going to be able to pull that off.

Charmy: Hee hee, “bee able”. Get it, Splash? *Snickers*

Splash: *Giggles*

Bomb: Actually, I wouldn’t rule that out just yet. I don’t think it’s too out of the question for Robotnik to create something like that. After all, this wouldn’t be the first time he’s created a bio-weapon. Remember the “White Echidna Project”?

Charmy: Oh, yeah. You mean Wechnia, right? I really, really miss him…

Splash: “Wechnia”? Isn’t that the name of the person who helped install that security system for the Master Emerald? What happened to him?

Knuckles: …

He…died a year ago during our battle against a villain named Mephiles the Dark and his counterpart, Iblis.


Splash: I’m…sorry to hear that. How did that happen, exactly?

Shadow: Iblis and Mephiles merged together and became “Solaris”, a creature that has the ability to consume all timeframes within a blink of an eye. We all fought him face to face, and just as Solaris was on the brink of death, he tried to take all of us with him by creating a black hole that would not only wipe us out, but everything in the entire universe as well. Wechnia volunteered to use his powers to close the void from the inside, sacrificing himself in the process. After that, he was never seen again, so he’s presumed dead.

Splash: Oh…

Omega: Warning! We are currently approaching the vicinity of the Death Egg III! Enemy robots and Badnik spacecrafts detected! I repeat; enemy robots and Badnik spacecrafts detected! Preparing for battle immediately!

Vector: Is anybody else gettin’ a feelin’ of déjà vu?

Sonic: Heh heh, yep. Ro-butt-nik’s gotten pretty predictable over the years.

Scorch: I’ll burn every last one of them into a crisp!

Nack: ‘N’ ah’mma bussa cap ‘n’ every single one’ve ‘em!

Bean: I’ll show them the TRUE meaning of the words “Dynamite Power”!

Nack: A’ight, ‘den let’s geddem!

Once again, while Tails was piloting the X-Tornado, everyone else got out on the deck to fight with all the Badniks and enemy spacecrafts that Robotnik sent their way. They continued to destroy them until there were no more left.

Sonic: Too easy! Piece o’ cake!

Amy: Hmm hmm! Yep, that’s my Sonic!

Tiara: There you go again, with that “my Sonic” crap. For him to be “your” Sonic, you’d have to be together, which you AREN’T.

Amy: GRRR…

Tiara: The truth hurts, doesn’t it?

Amy: You don’t know what you’re talking about! Sonic and I are both MADLY in love!

Sonic: Oh, brother…

Tiara: …

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!


Amy: What’s so funny!?

Tiara: You are BEYOND delusional!

Amy: Oh, screw you, Boobowski!

Tiara: I’M the one that Sonic’s madly in love with!

Sonic: *Facepalm*

Amy: Look who’s calling WHO “delusional”! It’s ME that he likes!

Tiara: No, it’s ME!

Amy: ME!

Tiara: You MUST be joking. There’s no WAY he’d go for a little brat like YOU, when he could have someone like ME!

Amy: You wanna say that to my face!?

Tiara: Gladly. *Moves closer* You’re a deluded little brat that can’t accept the fact that Sonic wants nothing to do with you.

Amy: OH THAT DOES IT! *Raises her hammer*

Ray: *Holds her back*

Amy: LET ME AT ‘ER, LET ME AT ‘ER! *Jerks away*

Ray: Look, just calm down, okay?

Amy: I’LL CALM DOWN AFTER I BASH HER SKULL IN!

Vector: Ah, gimme a break, Ray! Why couldn’t ya let ‘em fight!? I brought out ‘da camcorder, ‘n’ everything!

Splash: Oh, come on… Let’s not fight, you two. Can’t we all just get along?

Tiara: Not possible. Hell will freeze over before that happens.

Espio: We’re supposed to be focusing on stopping Robotnik right now, aren’t we? Can’t you put your petty differences aside until then?

Amy: …

Okay, fine. You can let go of me now, Ray.


Ray: *Releases her*

Rouge: HAHAHAHAHAHA. Well, I’ve certainly had MY share of entertainment for the day!

Nack: Yeah, you’re tellin’ me! It’s a shame it didn’t go on fa much longa… ‘Dat was even beddah ‘dan Jerry Springer!

Tails: Hang on, everybody! I’m about to shift this thing into high gear!

Tails turned on the X-Tornado’s jet boosters and sped toward the Death Egg III. When he got close enough, he landed it on the Death Egg III’s deck.

Knuckles: Okay. Now that we’re here, let’s go stop the REAL Robotnik! If we don’t act fast, my island will be destroyed, and he’ll use that machine of his to brainwash everyone on the planet!

Sonic: Alright. Let’s blast through with Sonic speed and show Ro-butt-nik the REAL super power of teamwork!

With the fate of Angel Island and the entire planet hanging in the balance, the heroes wasted no more time and hurried through the Death Egg III. They destroyed all the Badniks they came across, until they got to Robotnik.

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA… You’re too late, fools!

Mighty: What do you mean!?

Robotnik: The machine is already in the process of charging, and in only fifteen more minutes, Angel Island will be reduced to rubble, and all of the Earth’s inhabitants will kneel before me! HAHAHAHAHAHA! Finally, at long last! My ambitions will finally be realized! Today will soon mark the glorious age of the Robotnik Empire! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Sonic: Not gonna happen, Ro-butt-nik!

Scorch: Now that I’m sure you’re the real Robotnik, I’m going to go ahead and say it. One way or another, I’ll make you pay for what you’ve done! I’ll DESTROY you for using me!!!

Robotnik: Hmph, we’ll just see about that now, won’t we?

Tikal: You know, Scorch, I never thought I’d see the day where the two of us would be fighting on the same side.

Scorch: Bah, whatever. Don’t let it go to your head, because this doesn’t change a thing between us. We still have a score to settle. As a matter of fact, after Robotnik’s been dealt with, you’re next! Don’t forget it!

Tikal: If that’s the way you want it…


Sonic: …Whoa. What’s the history between you two, exactly?

Tikal: It’s a long story.

Robotnik: Now then… Let’s get down to business, shall we? The “Egg Dragoon” should be more than enough to keep you occupied. HAHAHAHAHAHA...

The true final battle against the real Dr. Robotnik has begun at last! Will our heroes be able to stop him this time around? Even if they do, will they do it in time before Angel Island gets destroyed, and the Earth’s populace gets brainwashed? Find out on the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Part 13

Previously, on Elements of Power, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the rest of the heroes took the X-Tornado and chased the Death Egg III into outer space. During the trip, Shadow, Rouge, and Omega informed everyone about the new information that they’ve managed to acquire from Dr. Robotnik’s database. The data that they’ve recovered are what appeared to be blueprints to four female hedgehog bio-weapons, which look strikingly similar to Scorch, Splash, and Slush. Additionally, the heroes managed to defeat all enemy spacecrafts and Badniks that Robotnik sent their way. After they were defeated, they entered the Death Egg III in order to have their final showdown with Robotnik; the real one, this time. Will they be able to defeat him in time before he manages to brainwash the Earth’s populace and destroy Angel Island? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA… So, you meddlesome pests, are you prepared to die?

Scorch: You should ask yourself that question, Robotnik.

Robotnik: GET A LOAD OF THIS!

Robotnik aimed the Egg Dragoon’s machine gun at everyone, and started rapidly firing at them. As they dodged the blasts, they moved closer to the Egg Dragoon, and attacked it altogether at once. However, that proved to be ineffective, since they got knocked back by a surge of energy.

Everyone: UHHHHHHH!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I’ll bet you weren’t expecting that now, were you?

Knuckles: Great! Another barrier! I’ll bet it’s because of the Master Emerald!

Robotnik: You guessed it! Thanks to the Master Emerald, I was able to generate an energy barrier around the Egg Dragoon, which makes it impervious to your attacks!

Scorch: Oh, yeah? Well, let’s see how impervious it is to THIS! *Launches several fireballs at it*

Nack: Here, doc! Lemme show ya how a REAL machine gun works! *Starts shooting it*

Bean: DYNAMITE POWER! *Throws a few bombs*

They kept attacking until an explosion occurred. However, after the smoke cleared, the Egg Dragoon was still standing, completely unharmed.

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Haven’t you fools put it together yet? There’s NOTHING you can do! I am UNSTOPPABLE!

Vector: We’re gonna hafta do somethin’ about that barrier! Othawise, we ain’t gonna be able to do no damage to it!

Tiara: He said that his machine is being powered by the Master Emerald, didn’t he? I’m guessing that there’s a machine around this place that’s containing it.

Knuckles: Most likely. After all, this wouldn’t be the first time he’s done something like this. I’m gonna see what I could do about finding it.

Orbot: Actually, Cubot and I are gonna take care of that for you. We’d be more than happy to fight alongside you guys, but…Robotnik never designed us for combat.


Cubot: Yeah. We’d just be a burden on you fellas ‘f we were to be standin’ ‘round these parts, doin’ nothin’.

Knuckles: Well, alright then. We’ll see you when you get back.

*They take off*

Heavy: So, they’re going to try tracking down the barrier-generating machine, are they? HAHAHAHAHAHA… Please. I’d be surprised if those two idiots could find their way out of a wet paper bag.

Bomb: Actually, that red, orb-shaped one is kind of smart. The golden, cube-shaped one, on the other hand… He’s the one that’s lacking in the intelligence department.

Robotnik: Hmph, I’m surprised to see that those two useless hunks of junk are still alive. Anyway, enough of this small talk! Let’s resume where we left off!

While Orbot and Cubot were searching for the machine that’s being powered by the Master Emerald, everyone else continued their battle against Robotnik. As before, the Egg Dragoon had the upper hand, since it’s immune to everyone’s attacks. The battle went on for quite some time, until the heroes were hanging by a mere thread.

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Well, well! This time, I have you fools beaten for sure! There’s nothing else left for you to do, so you might as well give up while you still can!

Splash: Ghhh…! I…don’t think so, Robotnik! As long…as there’s still breath left in me, I’ll…never allow your plans to succeed! You’ve made it clear from the beginning, ever since we first met…that you’d cause nothing but pain and suffering in your reign! I’ll die before I let that happen!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, now that can certainly be arranged now, can’t it? *Aims a crosshair at everyone, gets them locked in target, and starts charging up a laser*

Nack: AH, CRAP! AH, CRAAAAAAAAP!!!

Knuckles: For crying out loud! Haven’t they found that machine YET!?

Heavy: Isn’t it obvious? Like I said, those two idiots couldn’t find their way out of a wet paper bag, so it’s definitely safe to assume that they’ve bungled this task.

Splash: They’ll find it… Just give them some more time. I’m sure they’ll pull through.

Robotnik: Heavy’s right, actually. Orbot and Cubot are incompetent fools, and they were better off dying back at the volcano, where I left them.

Splash: But how could you do such a thing to your own robots!? No matter how “incompetent” you may think they are, casting them aside like garbage was completely uncalled-for! Especially when you consider how hard they’ve worked for you! You even did the same thing to Scorch!

Robotnik: Once again, Splash, thank you for the public service announcement. Now, enough of this small talk! The charge is complete! Prepare to meet your maker! *Gets ready to fire*

Shadow: CHAOS CONTROL! *Freezes Robotnik and the Egg Dragoon in time*

Robotnik: …

Shadow: There. That ought to hold him for the time being.

Splash: “The time beeing”. Get it, Charmy? *Giggles*

Charmy: Hee hee hee hee!

Bomb: Now that Robotnik’s frozen, why don’t we take this as our opportunity to find that machine ourselves? Aside from Orbot’s, or at least Cubot’s obvious lack of intelligence, this place is pretty big, and it’s easy to get lost. Perhaps we should try splitting up to find it?

Knuckles: Good idea. Why don’t we split into groups of two, as we did before?

Vector: Sounds good ta me! Splash, you don’t mind workin’ wit’ Charmy, do ya?

Splash: Not at all. Why do you ask?

Vector: Um, no reason!

Charmy: Because he’s tired of always getting stuck with me whenever we split up.

Slush: I think I’ll stick with Bark. *Clings to his arm* Is that alright with you?

Bark: Y-Yeah, sure.

Charmy: *Snickers*

Amy: & Tiara (at the same time): I’ll work with Sonic!

Sonic: Oh, great…

Amy: Hey! Get lost, Boobowski! I said it first!

Tiara: No, you didn’t! I did!

Amy: Find your own partner!

Tiara: I already have! I called it first!

Amy: No, I did!

Tiara: Back off! Sonic is MINE!

Amy: No, MINE!

*Everyone sweatdrops as they continue to argue*

Splash: Why don’t we let Sonic choose who he wants to work with?

Amy: That’s fine. Of course, we ALL know that he’s going to choose ME!

Tiara: Oh, please. Don’t make me laugh!

Amy: Sonic, why don’t you tell this hussy over here that it’s ME that you want to work with!

Tiara: Who are you calling a hussy!?

Amy: Who do you think!?

Sonic: …

Tails, I just HAVE to know… Why did you have to bring Tiara along?


Tails: Umm, well…

Amy: HAHAHAHA! You hear THAT, Boobowski!? He enjoys MY company FAR more than he enjoys YOURS!

Sonic: No, it’s not that, it’s just-

Tiara: Oh, give me a BREAK! If he enjoyed your company so much, then he wouldn’t be running from you on a twenty-four hour basis!

*They continue arguing back and forth*

???: HAHAHAHAHAHA… My, isn’t THIS entertaining?

Tiara: W-What!? Robotnik’s unfrozen!?

Amy: No way!

Shadow: Yes, he’s unfrozen, as you can see. The effects of Chaos Control don’t last forever, you know. Thanks to you and your petty bickering, you’ve completely wasted our time and brought the doctor the time HE needed to unfreeze!

Heavy: What better way is there to spend your time productively, than to argue over someone who doesn’t want anything to do with either one of you?

Amy & Tiara: WHO ASKED YOU!?

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA! I don’t know about anyone else, but I actually found it rather entertaining while it lasted! Now, then…where were we? Ah, yes! I remember! I was going to finish you fools off with a fully charged blast from the Egg Dragoon’s laser cannon! Let’s pick up where we left off!

Vector: At ‘da risk of soundin’ cowardly, I think we should go ahead ‘n’ make a run for it! It’s useless ta try fightin’ him right now! Whetha he’s frozen ‘r not, let’s go ahead ‘n’ look for that machine anyway!

Knuckles: Good idea.

With that said, everyone took off at high speed, in search of the machine that generated a barrier over the Egg Dragoon to make it imperious to their attacks. As they ran off, Robotnik not only gave chase, but fired projectiles at them, as well, which they managed to dodge most of the time. This process continued for a while, until Slush froze the floor, causing the Egg Dragoon to slip and fall.

Robotnik: AUGH!

Bark: Nice one.

Slush: Thanks.

Robotnik: I’ll make you PAY for this…

While Robotnik was down, everyone took the opportunity to run off. Eventually, they all got to the room where the machine was located. When they got there, they found that the machine was being guarded by Badniks, which were blocking Orbot and Cubot’s path.

Knuckles: Ah, so there you guys are.

Heavy: So, you did manage to find the machine after all… I’m surprised.

Cubot: Yup, we found it, but ‘dese here Badnik critters‘re blockin’ our path!

Orbot: We would have taken care of them already, but like we told you before, Robotnik never designed us for combat.

Vector: A’ight, no problem. Just leave it ta us.

So then, the heroes fought against the Badniks and quickly disposed of them. After they were taken care of, everyone turned their focus over to the barrier-generating machine, which was being powered by the Master Emerald. After Knuckles reclaimed the Master Emerald, they all took the opportunity to destroy the machine, leaving the Egg Dragoon vulnerable to their attacks.

Sonic: Alright! Now, all we need to do is head back to where Ro-butt-nik is, so we could finish things!

Robotnik: *Enters the room* Too late, I’m already here.

Espio: Just so you know, we’ve destroyed the device that was making your mech invincible.

Robotnik: Hmph, so what? With or without the barrier, the might of the Egg Dragoon is still MORE than enough to deal with you troublesome fools once and for all! THIS is the day where my plans WILL succeed! The Robotnik Empire will soon become a reality!

Tiara: In your dreams, it will!


So then, the battle resumed. No longer impervious to their attacks, the heroes actually began to do a significant amount of damage to the Egg Dragoon, much to the evil doctor’s dismay.

Robotnik: ARGH! You little PESTS! You’re going to REGRET this!

The fight went on for quite some time, and after a while, the Egg Dragoon ended up getting severely damaged to the point where it was about to explode.

Robotnik: W-WHAT!? THIS CAN’T BE! NO! NOOOOOOOO!!!

*An explosion occurs*

Sonic: Heh heh! Game over, Ro-butt-nik!

After the smoke cleared, Robotnik was on the ground, blackened up and with some of his clothes torn.

Robotnik: Ghhh… You fools are ALWAYS interfering with me!

Vector: Sorry, just part o’ the job!

Nack: HAHAHAHAHA… Now, Robotnik, fa all ‘da times you’ve set me up, ah’m gonna go ahead ‘n blow ya freakin’ brains out! *Points his gun*

Robotnik: W-Wait a minute, Nack! We can work something out here, can’t we?

Nack: Too late! It’s time ya’ve finally gotten what’s comin’ to ya!

Just as Nack pulled the trigger to deliver the final blow against Robotnik, the gun made a clicking sound, indicating that he was out of ammo.

Nack: Ah, crap! I ain’t got no more bullets! Whadda ‘bout you, Bean? Got anymore bombs ta use?

Bean: Nope, I used up my last one on that Egg Dragoon thing.

Scorch: Alright then. Looks like I’M going to have to finish him, which is fine by me! *Holds out the palm of her hand, and starts powering up a fire blast*

Robotnik: H-Hold on a second, Scorch! Do you REALLY want to go through with this!? I mean, after all… I’M the one who set you free! Remember?

Scorch: …

Yes, I remember all too well…but then you took advantage of me! Even after everything I’ve done for you, you intended kill me along with everyone else if you were to succeed in destroying Angel Island!


Robotnik: I-I was bluffing! I never met you any harm, Scorch! Honest! I mean, after all… You’re a Goddess! I knew that a being of YOUR caliber would be powerful enough to survive something like that! The Death Egg III’s laser cannon is powerful, but it still pales in comparison to the power that YOU possess!

Scorch: …

Robotnik: Yes, you’re very powerful, indeed. However, there’s only one thing that your power pales in comparison to, and that’s…your beauty.

Scorch: …

*Starts to blush a little* You…you really think so?


Robotnik: Why, yes, of course I do!

*Everyone else anime falls*

Vector: Oh, gimme a BREAK! You ain’t buyin’ any o’ this crap, are ya!?

Sonic: Sheesh… Resorting to sucking up, Robotnik? I thought even YOU were above that. -__-;;

Splash: Yes, really, Scorch… It doesn’t take much to see that he’s lying.


Slush: Exactly. The guy’s simply playing at your vanity to catch you off guard. Why don’t you go ahead and kill him, already? If you won’t then I will.

Scorch: ...

Robotnik: Also, just to reiterate, Scorch, I’M the one who freed you from your many years of captivity within that gem! If it hadn’t been for me, you’d still be trapped for another thousand years or so!

Scorch: I…I

Suddenly, before anything else could be said or done, a black and gold-colored Metal Sonic look-alike warped in front of them.

Sonic: Metal Sonic!?

Espio: That’s not the original; it’s Metal Sonic Version 3.0, a carbon copy that was created by Dr. Nega.

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Grabs Robotnik by the arm, and uses Chaos Control to warp away*

Sonic: Hey, get back here!

Suddenly, an alarm began to sound, and the place began to flash with a blinking red light.

Female Computer Voice: The Death Egg III’s self-destruct sequence will begin in approximately five minutes.

Everyone: FIVE MINUTES!?

Nack: AH, CRAP! AH, CRAAAAAAAAP!!! WE’D BEDDAH HURRY UP ‘N SCRAM, BEFORE WE’RE BLOWN TA SMITHEREENS!

Wasting no time, the heroes took off at high speed, in an effort to escape the Death Egg III. Will they be able to make it out of there in five minutes, before they get caught in the explosion? Find out on the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Part 14

When we last left off, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and all the others arrived at the Death Egg III to engage Dr. Robotnik in a final showdown; a showdown that was meant to determine the fate of Angel Island, as well as the rest of the world. At the start of the battle, Robotnik had the upper hand, since there was a machine that generated a barrier around the Egg Dragoon, which made it impervious to the heroes’ attacks. Knowing that they wouldn’t stand a chance as long as that machine’s still running, they decided to track it down and destroy it. In order to get through it, however, they had to deal with another swarm of Badniks, which they once again managed to defeat with ease.

After they were taken care of, they were free to destroy the machine, as well as claim the Master Emerald in the process. With that out of the way, the Egg Dragoon was no longer immune to their attacks, and they were able to deal a significant amount of damage to the mech and have it destroyed, leaving Robotnik beaten and blackened up from the explosion. Afterwards, Scorch began to power up a fire blast at the palm of her hand, getting ready to finish Robotnik off. However, she began to hesitate, due to the fact that she still felt somewhat indebted to Robotnik for releasing her. Before she could make her decision, Metal Sonic 3.0, Dr. Nega’s copy of Metal Sonic, came to Robotnik’s rescue and used Chaos Control to warp him out of the area.

Not very long after that, an alarm began to sound, and a computer voice informed everyone that the Death Egg III was set to explode in only five minutes! Will they be able to escape in time before they’re reduced to mere space dust? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 1: Legend of the Elemental Gems!


Nack: AH, CRAAAAAAP! ‘DIS IS LAST YEAR ALL OVAH AGAIN! ONLY ‘DIS TIME, WE ONLY GOT FIVE MINUTES INSTEAD O’ TEN! LET’S GO AHEAD ‘N’ SCREAM, ALREADY, BEFORE WE’RE BLOWN TA PIECES!

Omega: Precisely. We must evacuate immediately!

Nack: We ain’t gotta wait for nobody ‘dis time, do we?

Knuckles: Nope.

Nack: Good, ‘den I’m outta here! *Runs past everyone at high speed*

Bean: Right behind ‘ja! *Same*

After Nack and Bean took off, everyone else abruptly followed them. As they began to get further to the exit, more Badniks appeared and began to block their path to ensure that they wouldn’t escape. Once again, they managed to blast right through them, and kept going. However, no matter how many of them they destroyed, more Badniks just kept coming.

Vector: Good grief! Just how many o’ ‘dese guys are there!?

Mighty: There are tons of them! Robotnik must be getting desperate; he definitely doesn’t want us to get out of here alive, that’s for sure!

Charmy: Hee hee, “bee getting-“

Everyone (except Splash): CHARMY, SHUT UP!

Charmy: Okay, okay! No need to yell!

Female Computer Voice: The Death Egg III’s self-destruct sequence will begin in two minutes.

Sonic: Uh oh! That doesn’t sound good!

Tails: We aren’t much further… The X-Tornado is waiting for us out on the deck! Let’s speed up some so we could get there in time!

Sonic: Yeah! C’mon, it’s juice ‘n’ loose time! Up, over, and GONE!

With that said, the heroes sped up in order to get to the X-Tornado that was waiting for them outside. With only one minute to spare, and just as they were about to get to the exit, they were confronted by more Badniks, which once again blocked their path.

Espio: Ugh… Quite a persistent bunch, aren’t they?

Omega: Worthless consumer models! I will eliminate them all! *Aims his arm cannons at them and blasts them with machine guns*

After Omega destroyed the Badniks in their way, they went through the exit. Just as they were on their way to the X-Tornado, they encountered more Badniks, who were attempting to keep them from reaching it.

Tiara: Ugh… These guys are REALLY starting to get on my nerves! *Takes out her jeweled staff, slams it on the ground, and creates a shockwave to knock them away*

Sonic: Nice one, Tiara!

Tiara: Thanks.

Amy: Oh, please. I could have done that!

Tiara: No, you couldn’t have!

Amy: Yes, I could!

*They continue arguing*

Female Computer Voice: The Death Egg III’s self-destruct sequence will begin in five more seconds.

*They didn’t notice and continue arguing*

Nack: CAN ‘DA TWO O’ YOUSE STOP ARUGIN’ ALREADY, SO WE CAN GET ‘DA ‘ELL OUTTA HERE!?

Now that there were no more Badniks to deal with, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the rest of the heroes were free to proceed and enter the X-Tornado. Tails quickly fired up the engines, and took off just as the Death Egg III was beginning to explode.

Knuckles: Whew… That was too close!

Charmy: We did it!

Vector: Yep, all in a day’s work, boys…and girls.

Shadow: Although we managed to foil another of his plans, the doctor still managed to get away.

Omega: *Turns to Scorch* Query: You had an opportunity to put an end to Dr. Robotnik’s existence once and for all… Why did you hesitate?

Scorch: I… I don’t know…

Splash: It’s because you still feel indebted to him for releasing you, isn’t it?

Scorch: I…don’t want to talk about it. I need to be alone right now… *Walks away and goes outside, on the X-Tornado’s deck*

Amy: …

You know, I wonder…


Splash: Hmm?

Amy: This might sound strange, and by that, I mean VERY strange, but… Does anyone else think that she might have…feelings for Robotnik?

Everyone: …

*They all stare at her with blank “WTF?” expressions on their faces*

Amy: Why’s everyone looking at me like that?

*A handful of people burst out laughing*

Amy: What’s so funny!?

Heavy: HAHAHAHAHAHA… That has to be the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard! Actually, no… Mephiles’ bogus “peace and prosperity” claim holds that title, but this one’s certainly a worthy contender!

Amy: Oh, come on! Surely, I’m not the ONLY one who saw Scorch blushing after Robotnik gave her that compliment about her looks!?

Ray: No, you’re not the only one. I saw it, too.

Amy: Thank you, Ray.

Tiara: …As much as I’d hate to admit it, I think Amy’s right about this one. I saw it with my own two eyes.

Amy: You see? Even Boobowski agrees with me!

Splash: …

Wow. This goes even deeper than I thought. If what you say is true, Amy, then it would certainly explain a lot. I guess when Robotnik turned on Scorch, it was more than just a feeling of being used and betrayed. She was truly heartbroken…


Slush: How disturbing. If that IS the case, then what could she possibly SEE in him!?

Tiara: Your guess is as good as mine. *Shudders*

Rouge: My thoughts exactly.

Shadow: While we’re on the subject of the doctor… I wonder why Metal Sonic 3.0, a creation of Dr. Nega’s, would come to Robotnik’s aid, if the two of them are mortal enemies…

Tiara: By the way, I forgot to ask… Who is “Dr. Nega”?

Shadow: He’s Robotnik’s crazed descendant from 200 years into the future. Unlike his ancestor, he has no desire to rule this world; he intends to destroy it. He’s made quite a few attempts at it so far, only to be thwarted each time. Nega also has a history of impersonating the doctor whenever he travels to this time period. His impression is nearly flawless, until he gives himself away by breaking out into his usual hoarse, screechy-sounding laugher.

Espio: Wait a minute… You don’t suppose that was actually Nega that we’ve been fighting all along, do you?

Shadow: It’s definitely a possibility. As I’ve previously stated, the two doctors are enemies, and I find it strange how Nega’s copy of Metal Sonic would go out of his way to help someone that isn’t his master.

Sonic: That’s weird… Last time I checked, the two Ro-butt-niks were on the same side. At least they were during the times when Blaze and I fought against them.

Shadow: Perhaps they became enemies once they discovered that they had different goals? Remember; Robotnik’s goal is to conquer this world, while Nega’s goal is to destroy it.

Charmy: Wow. Dr. Nega sounds really, REALLY crazy!

Espio: “Crazy” doesn’t even begin to describe him, Charmy. "Psychotic" is more like it.

Heavy: So, basically, Dr. Nega is no different from Mephiles, right?

Shadow: I wouldn’t go that far, exactly, but he’s certainly close.

Scorch: *Comes back in*

Splash: I’ll take it that you’re feeling better now?

Scorch: Sort of. Did…I hear that correctly? That wasn’t the real Dr. Robotnik that we’ve been fighting?

Tikal: Possibly, but we’re not entirely sure.

Scorch: I see. If that truly has been an impersonator we’ve been facing all along, then something must have happened to the real Robotnik! Wherever he is, I have to save him!


Charmy: By the way, Scorch, is it true that you have a crush on Robotnik!? EWWWW! Gross!

Scorch: What are you babbling about!? Thanks to Tikal, I was sealed up for thousands of years… You have no IDEA what’s that’s like! Dr. Robotnik was generous enough to free me, so I told him that I would do anything to repay the favor. I worked alongside him as an act of gratitude, nothing more! I don’t know WHERE you’re getting THIS crap from!

Charmy: Okay then, if you say so…

After a long journey through space, the X-Tornado finally made its way back to Earth. Tails landed the plane in the Mystic Ruins, where his Workshop is located.

*Everyone gets off the plane*


Scorch: Tikal, I know that I said we still have a score to settle, but that’s going to have to wait for the time being. At least until I get to the bottom of this…

Tikal: Understood.

Scorch: *Gets a running start, and flies off at the speed of a comet*


Sonic: Whoa, she’s fast!

Knuckles: Yeah, that’s the same thing I said.

Sonic: I wouldn’t mind having a little race, just to see how she’d measure up to my own speed!

Knuckles: …

Wait, what’s this strange energy I’m sensing?


Shadow: Hmm… I feel it, too. Someone must be using Chaos Control, but whom?

Charmy: Hee hee hee, “bee using Chaos Control”. Get it, Splash? *Snickers*

Splash: *Giggles*

Heavy: *Facepalm*

As it turns out, the “strange energy” that Knuckles and Shadow began to sense was a blue warp hole that was beginning to open. Shortly afterwards, three familiar faces came through it from the other side.

Charmy: Hey, look, you guys! It’s Silver, Blaze, and…a raccoon.

Blaze: Hello. It’s been a while.

Marine: *In response to Charmy* The name’s Marine, mate. Nice ta meet ‘cha!

Charmy: Nice to meet you, too. I’m Charmy Bee.

Heavy: Ah, so YOU’RE Marine… Blaze told us about you a year ago. She says you’re a blithering idiot.

Marine: EH!?

Blaze: No, Heavy, those were YOUR words.

Heavy: You kind of implied it by comparing her to Charmy, though.

Charmy: PBBBTH…! *Sticks his tongue at Heavy*

Silver: Heh, doesn’t look like much has changed between you two.

Knuckles: So, what brings you back to this time period?

Shadow:  No, it…it can’t be! Mephiles… He and Iblis are still alive, aren’t they!? Or are you here, because of Dr. Nega?

Blaze: Thankfully, and I use that term loosely, it’s the latter. Nega has once again stolen the Sol Emeralds from me, and he’s escaped somewhere into this time period.

Espio: So, it’s true, then… Dr. Nega really HAS come to this time period again!

Silver: Did you guys run into him?

Espio: Actually, we saw his Metal Sonic copy come to Robotnik’s aid after we defeated him at the Death Egg III. Given the fact that both Robotniks are enemies, as well as Nega’s tendency to impersonate the real one, we have a reason to believe that the “Robotnik” we fought was actually Nega in disguise.

Blaze: I see.

Silver: Well, whatever it takes, we’re gonna expose “Robotnik” as the fraud he truly is! I’ll never allow him to ruin the future we’ve worked so hard to change!

Marine: Don’t look now, but here comes the ol’ mustached bloke’s Metal Sonic copy! *Points to the air*

Upon his arrival, Metal Sonic 3.0 quickly dived down, swiped the Master Emerald out of Knuckles’ hands, and took off.

Knuckles: Hey, wait a minute! What do you think you’re doing!? GET BACK HERE WITH MY EMERALD! *Chases after him*

Sonic: Hoo boy… If I had a dime for everytime the Master Emerald got stolen and/or Knuckles believed one of Ro-butt-nik’s lies, then I’d be rich!

Charmy: Hee hee hee! Get it, Splash, “bee-”

Vector: Oh, cuddit out wit’ da puns already, will ya!? Let’s go ahead ‘n’ chase aftah Metal Sonic Three-Point-Zero, or wudevah ‘e’s called!

Charmy: Okay, okay.

Wasting no more time, everyone quickly joined Knuckles in chasing down Metal Sonic 3.0 to reclaim the Master Emerald. Will they be able to catch him? Are their suspicions about Dr. Robotnik correct? All of these questions will “bee” answered in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Part 15

Previously, on Elements of Power, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the rest of the heroes have managed to successfully flee from the Death Egg III, which was set to explode shortly after Metal Sonic 3.0 made off with Robotnik. During their trip back to Earth, they all began to suspect that the “Robotnik” they’ve been fighting was yet another imposter. Not just a robotic copy this time, but Dr. Nega, Robotnik’s crazed descendant from 200 years into the future. Upon their arrival back to Earth, Scorch decided to go on ahead in order to uncover the truth.

Shortly afterwards, they encountered Silver the Hedgehog, Blaze the Cat, and Marine the Raccoon, who’ve come back from the future in search of Dr. Nega, who, according to Blaze, has stolen the Sol Emeralds from her and escaped into that time period. Not very long after that, Metal Sonic 3.0 returned and swiped the Master Emerald right from under Knuckles’ nose. In an effort to reclaim the Master Emerald again, Knuckles and the others began to chase him down. Will they be able to catch up to Metal Sonic Ver. 3.0? Are their suspicions about Nega impersonating Robotnik correct? Find out in this exciting chapter of Elements of Power!


Nack: *Takes out his gun, pulls the trigger, but nothing happens other than a clicking sound* AH, CRAAAAP! I fuhgot! I ain’t got no more ammo!

Bean: And I still don’t have anymore bombs, either!

Nack: Yeah, y’know somethin’, Bean? I just realized… None o’ ‘dis concerns us! We already got ‘da money was lookin’ for, ‘n’ Robotnik’s already gotten what was comin’ to ‘em by ‘dis “Nega” chump, so whadda we still hangin’ around ‘dese guys for?

Bean: You know, Nack, that’s a good point. What do we care what happens to Robotnik? That guy could jump in a shark-infested lake for all I care. In fact, I couldn’t care less about the Master Emerald, either. Even if I did, it’s not like we’re getting paid for this, anyway.

Nack: Yep, you’re definitely speakin’ my language, as usual! C’mon, let’s bail! *Runs off*

Bean: You guys are on your own. *Same*

Bark: …Well, so much for them.

Knuckles: Oh, well, whatever. Who needs them, anyway?

Vector: Good riddance!

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Speeds up*

Knuckles: Oh, no you don’t!

Even without Nack and Bean, who’ve suddenly come to the realization that this incident doesn’t concern them, the rest of the heroes still continued their high-speed chase in order to track down Metal Sonic Version 3.0 and reclaim the Master Emerald. The chase went on for a while, until reach a mechanical building deep within the woods of the Mystic Ruins. Upon entering the building, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the rest of the heroes were swarmed with a bunch of Badniks, while Metal Sonic Ver. 3.0 took that as his opportunity to escape through an automatic door.

Knuckles: GET OUT OF MY WAY!

Once again, they were able to fight off all Badniks that blocked their path. They kept moving through the base, until they eventually caught up with and found Scorch, who had previously went ahead of the group, and Metal Sonic 3.0, who was standing next to Robotnik.

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA… Well, what have we here?

Vector: The jig’s up, Robotnik, if that IS your real name…

Charmy: Yeah! IF that’s your real name!

Robotnik: What are you talking about?

Silver: We have it all figured out! You’re Dr. Nega in disguise!

Robotnik: …Who? Ah, wait… You must be referring to Nega Robotnik. *In a screechy, high-pitched voice* Hee hee hee hee…! *Quickly covers his mouth* I mean, uhh… I haven’t seen him around, actually.

Everyone: …!

Blaze: Just as we suspected! You ARE Nega Robotnik!

Robotnik: I don’t have a CLUE what you’re talking about!

Shadow: Don’t bother trying to deceive us! First of all, I recognize that laugh anywhere! Secondly, if you were truly the Robotnik of THIS time period, then why would Metal Sonic Version 3.0, a creation of Dr. Nega’s, come to YOUR aid, when it’s been established that the two of you are enemies?

Silver: Just give yourself up! There’s no doubt in my or anyone else’s mind now, that YOU’RE Nega Robotnik!

Shadow: Exactly, so go ahead and reveal your true self!

“Robotnik”: *In his normal voice (again)* Eee hee hee… You’re quite perceptive, as always. Very good! I guess it’s time we’ve put an end to this childish little game once and for all. You are absolutely correct… I’m NOT the Dr. Robotnik of this era. *Presses a button on his belt and reverts to his true form* I am indeed Dr. Eggman Nega, also known "Nega Robotnik" or just “Dr. Nega”, if you prefer. Hee hee hee!

Scorch: So, it’s true then… You really HAVE been impersonating him all this time! But I don’t understand, though… Exactly when did this happen? I’ve been around Dr. Robotnik almost the entire time after he released me from the gem I was trapped in!

Slush: Same here. I even spied on him, and I don’t recall there being a time where this could have taken place!

Nega Robotnik: Eee hee hee! Well, my dear Scorch, it happened after you went to go find Slush, who got herself lost trying to find Robotnik’s fortress!

Scorch: W-WHAT!? So, the person that I heard talking through the walkie-talkie, who said that, I was nothing more than a mere pawn to be manipulated… That was actually YOU, and not Dr. Robotnik!?

Nega Robotnik: Correct! My impersonation was flawless, wasn’t it? Eee hee hee hee…

Splash: So, if you’ve been a fake all this time, then happened to the REAL Dr. Robotnik?

Nega Robotnik: Perhaps this answers your question? *Holds up a collectible card, which has Robotnik on it*

Bark: What the…!? How’d you do that!?

Nega Robotnik: It’s quite simple, actually. *Takes out a camera* It was all thanks to this special camera. Unlike an ordinary camera, which only has the ability to take photographs, this one has the ability to turn anyone and anything into a card in just a click of a button! As you can see, I’ve decided to use its power on Robotnik. Also, in case you aren’t aware, I’m the true inventor of this device, contrary to what Dr. Robotnik may have told you.

Vector: So, exactly whadda ya hope ta accomplish from impersonatin’ Robotnik, anyway?

Nega Robotnik: I disguised myself as Robotnik in order to go undetected by THESE meddlesome fools… *Points to Silver and Blaze* …But once again, it didn’t work out quite as planned.

Blaze: By now, you should know not to disguise yourself as Robotnik, of all people. We’re already naturally on guard against him as it is. Now, enough talk. Tell me what you’ve done with the Sol Emeralds!

Nega Robotnik: That’s for ME to know, and for YOU to find out! Eee hee hee…

Scorch: *Fuming with anger* How dare you… HOW DARE YOU!? All of this time, you had me thinking that I had been used and betrayed by the REAL Robotnik, but then it turned out to be you all along! You made me lose my trust in him for no reason!

Slush: Yes, you were also the one who had me trapped in that room with the temperature on a hundred degrees!

Nega Robotnik: Eee hee hee…

Scorch: YOU ARE SO DEAD!!! *Holds out the palm of her hand and gets ready to blast him*

Nega Robotnik: I wouldn’t try that if I were you! *Holds up Robotnik’s card again* That is, unless you’d like his card to get burnt to a pile of ashes! If that happens, then you’ll never be able to restore him back to his original state! EEE HEE HEE HEE!

Scorch: GRRR…

Nega Robotnik: So, Scorch, are you still willing to attack me while this card’s in my possession? Eee hee hee!

Tiara: Ugh… I don’t know about anyone else, but that laugh is REALLY starting to get on my nerves!

Amy: I couldn’t agree more!

Scorch: I… I…

Nega Robotnik: Eee hee hee! Yes, good girl! You stay put while I turn on the sprinklers! You wouldn’t want to cause an…accident, would you? EEE HEE HEE HEE! *Gets ready to tear the card*

Scorch: WHAT!?

Splash: You coward!

Espio: Wait! Correct me if I’m wrong, but you’re Robotnik’s descendant, correct? Not that I care, but if he were to die in this timeframe, doesn’t that also mean that you’ll cease to exist?

Nega Robotnik: …

Vector: Wayda not put any thought into yer plan, ya freakin’ moron!

Nega Robotnik: Eee hee hee! I’m perfectly aware of that, thank you very much.

Mighty: You knew this, and yet you STILL intended to kill Robotnik?

Nega Robotnik: I just find it fun and amusing to use my enemies’ weaknesses to my advantage! EEE HEE HEE HEE HEE!


Everyone: …

Marine: Strewth! This ol’ bloke’s crazy!

Blaze: Yes, he is out there, indeed.

Tiara: It SCARES me to think that people like him are allowed to walk the streets without taking some sort of medication.

Nega Robotnik: Anyway, I’ve got some unfinished business I need to attend to. Metal Sonic Version Three-Point Zero, I’m counting on you to take care of them for me!

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Nods*

After that, Dr. Nega ran off, but not before taking a picture of the Master Emerald with his camera, turning it into a card. Just as Knuckles was getting ready to chase him, Metal Sonic 3.0 stepped in front of him and blocked his path.

Knuckles: You know what? Fine! If sending you to the scrap heap is what it’s gonna take to get to Nega, then so be it!

Charmy: Get it, “so bee it”? *Snickers*

Knuckles: *Glares*

Charmy: Sorry, couldn’t resist.

Marine: Heh heh! Good one, mate!

Splash: I found it kind of funny, as well. *Giggles*

Heavy: The surprise of the century.

Splash: Hmph!

???: Leave this to me.

Sonic: *Looks back* Hey, it’s Metal Sonic! The original one, this time.

Metal Sonic: So, you’re finally admitting that I am the real Sonic, and you’re the copy?

Sonic: Uhhh, no. That’s not what I meant. I said the original METAL Sonic.

Metal Sonic: I see. In any case, I’ll take care of this other imposter, while the rest of you catch up to Dr. Nega.

Shadow: Understood.

Tails: Even though I reprogrammed him, he’s still under the impression that HE’S the real Sonic. Ah, well. I’ll worry about that later. For now, let’s go find Dr. Nega.

*Everyone else runs off*

Metal Sonic 3.0: … *His eyes glow red as he sets his sights on Metal Sonic*

Metal Sonic: Ready or not, my loathsome copy, here I come!

*They dash toward one another*

While Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the others are racing to find Dr. Nega, another battle is beginning in the meantime: Metal Sonic against Metal Sonic Version 3.0! Which one will emerge victorious? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power!
