|Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 4: Dimensional Chaos|
June 28, 2012
On the previous episode of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik opted to create a fifth addition to his line of EG Experiments, which would possess the powers and abilities of all the other Elemental Goddesses, plus additional power from the seven Chaos Rings, which he has codenamed "EG-005". The Ice Goddess, Slush, who was feigning loyalty to the doctor and secretly plotting against him, ended up learning about this project from the newly-repaired Metal Sonic Version 3.0, and was getting ready to report this discovery to the Chaotix team. After examining the blueprints to EG-005, Slush remembered the incident that occurred with Dr. Robotnik's first EG Experiment, EG-001/Squash, the Goddess of Stone, and came to the conclusion that since Robotnik couldn't control her, then there wouldn't be any way that he'd be able to control EG-005, who had abilities that far surpassed Squash's. Fearing what she might become, Slush was getting ready to destroy the blueprints, until she was caught by Dr. Robotnik (after he had already learned of her treachery prior to that moment).
After briefly scolding the Ice Goddess for her "blatant act of treason", Robotnik revealed that he was in need of a blood sample to begin his experiment. That time around, however, he decided to use Slush's blood, rather than Scorch's as he did with the previous four EG Experiments. Not wanting this to happen, Slush decided to make a run for it, but Metal Sonic 3.0, using the telekinetic powers he obtained from Silver, held her down, making it easier for the doctor to obtain the sample he desired. After he was finished getting the blood sample that he needed, Robotnik decided to use Dr. Nega's dimensional camera to have Slush trapped within a dimensional card, in order to prevent her from leaking information about Project EG-005, which he intended to keep secret.
One week later, the project was nearly finished, and the only thing left to do was infuse the power of the Chaos Rings with the Multi-Elemental Gem that the doctor created. Using one of his latest inventions, the "Egg Merger", he decided to do just that. However, things did not go entirely as Robotnik had planned. Instead of the Chaos Rings' power getting infused within the Multi-Element Gem, it ended up being the other way around. Each of the seven elemental powers that the gem possessed ended up getting transferred into the Chaos Rings, accidentally and effectively creating the "Elemental Chaos Rings". Shortly after they were created, they ended up getting scattered throughout various locations on Angel Island. With that said, Dr. Robotnik, Scorch, EG-003/Shock, EG-004/Storm, and Metal Sonic Version 3.0 wasted no time and hurried out of the Mystic Ruins base to find the Elemental Chaos Rings.
Elsewhere, at the office of the Chaotix Detective Agency, Espio the Chameleon, Charmy Bee, Vector the Crocodile, and the Water Goddess, Splash, ended up getting a call from Slush via her walkie-talkie's fuzzy signal. From there, she explained to the group that she had been captured, and what Robotnik and his associates were currently up to. After they were informed about the situation, the four of them set a course for Tails' Workshop in the Mystic Ruins, in order to borrow the emerald detector and begin looking for the Elemental Chaos Rings right away. During their search, they ended up running into their comrades, Knuckles the Echidna and Wechnia the "White Echidna Project", who were also on the hunt for the rings after spotting one while they were guarding the Master Emerald. However, they soon learned that there were two other individuals who were after the rings; those "individuals" were none other than the notorious criminals, Nack the Weasel/Fang the Sniper and Bean the Dynamite.
Apparently, the two of them were in the area during Splash and the Chaotix's trip to Tails' Workshop, and overheard them talking about the Elemental Chaos Rings, and came to the conclusion that the rings are worth a fortune, and decided to hunt them down in order to sell them for profit. Unfortunately for them, however, their plans were short-lived. They ended up getting outmaneuvered by the Chaotix and company, and soon found themselves arrested and sent to jail for the various crimes they've committed prior to that moment.
When the heroes left Red Mountain after their confrontation with Nack and Bean, they returned to the Mystic Ruins and found EG-002/Seedra, the Goddess of Leaves, as well as Mighty the Armadillo, Ray the Flying Squirrel, Honey the Cat, and Tikal the Echidna, who just came from the nearby Chao Garden. After explaining the situation to them, they agreed to take part in hunting down the Elemental Chaos Rings, and they all split into groups of two. Since the Chaos Ring slots were filled, Shadow, Squash, and Omega decided to infiltrate Dr. Robotnik's base in hopes of finding and destroying EG-005 before she has a chance to reach completion, as well as rescuing Slush from her dimensional prison. Metal Sonic, on the other hand, outright admitted that EG-005 was of no concern to him, and that he was only tagging along with Shadow, Squash, and Omega in order to settle his score with Metal Sonic Version 3.0.
Although the group was not successful in finding EG-005, they did, however, succeed in rescuing Slush, as intended, and she was able to join the rest of the heroes in their search for the Elemental Chaos Rings. Shadow, Squash, and Omega also managed to find the blueprints to EG-005's design, and they were able to pinpoint her weakness. Much later on, after the heroes managed to collect all seven Elemental Chaos Rings, and just as Tiara's father, Professor Gazebo Boobowski, along with his assistant/lab partner Professor Nathaniel Porkenstein were about to use their invention, the "Elemental Power Extractor" to disable to Chaos Rings' powers, the rings ended up getting lifted by Mecha Amy and Metal Sonic 3.0, and Robotnik was able to successfully bring EG-005 to life.
As suggested by Storm and Egg-Robo, the doctor named her "Silvra, the Goddess of All Elements". Her first assignment was to destroy the Chaotix and company, who were in the process of storming the doctor's Sand Ocean base in hopes of reclaiming the Elemental Chaos Rings and stopping Robotnik's plans from coming to fruition. On the way, Silvra soon found herself lost, and eventually ended up befriending Cream the Rabbit and her Chao, Cheese and Chocola. After Silvra found the rest of the group, a battle was about to take place between them, but Cream interrupted, pleading with the other heroes not to hurt Silvra, since she had saved her life moments ago (thus proving she was not the monster everyone assumed she would be). Not very long afterwards, Cream and the others convinced Silvra not to take orders from Dr. Robotnik anymore, which she eventually agreed to.
Anticipating something like this would happen, Robotnik used the remote control device that he invented to transfer a virus over to Silvra (since she was part machine) and completely bring her under his control. Before succumbing to the doctor's mind control, she asked Cream and the others to finish her off when that time came, but they refused, stating that taking her life was not the answer, and that they would instead find a way to free her. After that, half of the heroes stayed behind to take Silvra on, while the other half proceeded through the base to seek and destroy the device that Robotnik was using to control her.
Elsewhere, Mecha Amy, who was utterly resentful of the doctor and desired next to nothing but freedom and independence from him, had finally decided that enough was enough. She then began forming a plan to rise up and rebel against Robotnik; not only for the purpose of freeing herself, but Silvra, as well. After a small pep talk, Shock and Storm decided to do the same. The three of them then joined up with the group of heroes that were in search of the mind-control device, and showed them a shortcut that eventually led to where Robotnik was.
After defeating the Badniks that he pitted them against, they assumed that they had Robotnik cornered, but he retorted that EG-005/Silvra was not the only weapon that he had, and decided to use his mind-control device to brainwash Mecha Amy, as well. Unfortunately for the doctor, he forgot to set the device so that it's possible to control both Mecha Amy and Silvra at the same time, and as such, the latter ended up returning to her original self, and joined up with the rest of the heroes to help take Robotnik down, and permanently free both herself and Mecha Amy from his control. With the combined efforts of all the heroes, they managed to defeat Robotnik, free both Silvra and Mecha Amy, and destroyed the device (as well as its corresponding blueprints later on).
Angered by everything that the doctor put her through, Mecha Amy decided that she was going to put a permanent end to Robotnik by taking his life, but Slush (after realizing that Robotnik was one of the first people who's ever been kind to her) stopped Mecha Amy from doing so. Before the Ice Goddess was able to give an explanation for that, Egg-Robo showed up in the nick of time, grabbed the doctor with his "Big Arms" mech, and fled the scene, but not before tossing a bomb at the heroes in a last-ditch effort to destroy them. Silver, using his telekinetic powers, tossed the bomb right back at him, sending both Egg-Robo and Robotnik flying over the horizon. To celebrate their hard-earned victory over Dr. Robotnik's plans, the heroes decided to enjoy yet another nice afternoon at the beach as they usually do.
Six months later, while Cream the Rabbit and her mother, Vanilla were having a Christmas gathering over at their house, Dr. Robotnik, of all people, ended up showing up over there…as a party guest, no less. During his stay there, he made a startling announcement, claiming that he's decided to relinquish his plans for world domination in order to pursue a teaching degree. Although he seemed sincere, there were a few people (such as Sonic) who did not believe him, especially when a reprogrammed Metal Sonic arrived to cause trouble. However, as it turns out, Dr. Robotnik was not the one responsible for that; it was in fact, his crazed descendant, Dr. Nega (who somehow managed to escape the mental institution that he was brought to months ago).
According to himself, the "reprogramming" was the result of a virus program that he developed, which he decided to use Metal Sonic as a test subject for. However, he merely planned on using Metal Sonic as a decoy to distract the heroes, while the former kidnaps Cheese and Chocola to use them as fuel for the Ifrit, who was able to seamlessly cross into their world, thanks to the dimension-ripping capabilities that Nega added to his camera. Before he was able to feed the two Chao to the Ifrit, Metal Sonic Version 3.0, of all people (who was presumed dead after one of his previous battles against Metal Sonic) ended up coming to their rescue. He then went on to explain that his reason for doing so was to obtain their data, and otherwise wouldn't have cared less what happened to them.
After leaving to cure Metal Sonic of the Nega Virus (since Three Point-Zero wouldn't get any satisfaction from defeating him while he's under mind control), the rest of the heroes used the power of the Sol Emeralds, changed into their "super" forms, and engaged the Ifrit in battle. After a long, tough battle, the fiery creature was defeated, and ended up falling to its doom. Dr. Nega, on the other hand, was sent flying over the horizon by an angry Metal Sonic (along with all the other Badniks that were purged of the Nega Virus).
So far, one month has passed since then, and Dr. Nega, in addition to repairing and upgrading his dimensional camera, was in the process of creating a new robot to replace Metal Sonic 3.0, who he's begun to find unreliable, and labeled as a "traitor" due to the aforementioned incident.
Nega Robotnik: Eee hee hee! So far, so good! My dimensional camera has been restored to perfection, and my new robot is coming along smoothly! However, I'm lacking a sufficient energy source to power her; so unfortunately, I'm going to have to put this robot on hold at the moment until I find one. In the meantime, why don't I go ahead and put this camera's dimension-ripping function to the test? Alright, here goes… *Turns the camera's knob*
*A surge of energy bursts from it, effectively creating a dimensional rift*
Nega Robotnik: Yes, yes! It's working, it's working! Eee hee hee hee hee! I'm such a genius, I even amaze myself sometimes! Now then… *Looks at the portal* I wonder where it leads? I suppose there's only one way to find out… *Jumps through*
Curious as to where the portal led, Dr. Nega decided to jump through it to see for himself. When he arrived at his destination, he soon found himself towards the entrance of a volcanic area.
Nega Robotnik: Huh? Where am I? *Looks around* Is this…another dimension? *Reads the sign* "Mt. Volcana", eh? Eee hee hee! What an interesting coincidence! A few minutes ago, I had just got finished saying that I was in need of a fiery energy source to power my new creation, and then I happen to stumble upon a place like this! I think it's time I've taken a look around. Who knows what I might find? *Enters*
After fifteen minutes of exploring Mount Volcana, Dr. Nega eventually came across a room that contained a small red, glowing gem with a fiery aura around it.
Nega Robotnik: Ah, now what have we here? *Walks over to the gem and picks it up and examines it* Ah, yes, yes! This is exactly what I need in order to bring her to life! *Looks at it again* Wait a minute, is it me, or does this gem bear a striking resemblance to the ones worn by Scorch, Slush, and all the other Elemental Goddesses? Hmm… Whatever the case may be, it's most likely nothing more than a coincidence. Now that I have what I came for, I think it's time I've-
Suddenly, before Nega had a chance to finish his sentence, a small vibration started to occur, indicating that Mt. Volcana was getting ready to erupt.
Nega Robotnik: W-WHAT!? What's happening!? Is this volcano erupting!? I'd better escape while I still have the chance! *Runs off*
*Somewhere along the way, he ends up dropping the gem due to the vibration, and it ends up falling into a pool of lava*
Nega Robotnik: OH, NOOOOOO! CURSES!
Shortly after accidentally dropping the gem, a pillar of flames suddenly burst from the lava, forming into a Scorch look-alike with blue fur and flames.
Nega Robotnik: GAH! S-Scorch!? What are YOU doing here!? Don't tell me you've anticipated my arrival here, and have come to spoil my plans!
???: "Scorch"? Who is that? I don't know such a person…
Nega Robotnik: …
I see. Well, if you're not her, then who are you?
*The volcano vibrates again, and some lava is seen heading in their direction*
???: I'll explain everything very soon… *Grabs him by the arm* But for now, we need to focus on getting out of here!
After taking Nega by the arm, the mysterious Scorch look-alike took off and jetted out of the volcano at the speed of a comet.
Nega Robotnik: That was a close one! I thought for sure I would end up getting boiled alive in there! You have my thanks, Scorch, I mean…whoever you are.
???: My pleasure. It's the least I could do for the man who saved my life.
Nega Robotnik: Saved your life?
???: The gem you found… *Points to it in her tiara* …For reasons I don't particularly care to get into detail with, I've been trapped in it for a very long time, and dreamt of nothing but freedom for thousands of years, and because of you, my dream has finally become a reality. I don't know whether or not it was your intention, but the point is, you did it, and I thank you for that. *Bows*
Nega Robotnik: …
???: Oh, I almost forgot! My name is Volcana, the Goddess of Flames.
Nega Robotnik: As in, Mount Volcana, the volcano that we just came from?
Volcana: Yes, but due to some slight memory loss on my part, I cannot remember whether or not I was named after the mountain, or if it was the other way around.
Nega Robotnik: Ah, I see. Anyway, my name is Doctor Eggman Nega, also known as Nega Robotnik, or just simply Dr. Nega, if you prefer. It's a pleasure to meet you.
Volcana: Likewise, Doctor N. You don't mind if I call you that, do you?
Nega Robotnik: Not at all. (Wait a minute, I just realized… My earlier assumption about this being another dimension… I guess it turned out I was correct! This world must be the parallel to the one that I came from, and Volcana must be Scorch's dimensional equivalent! That would definitely explain the resemblance, and why there are two Fire Goddesses!)
Volcana: I feel as if I just can't thank you enough for what you've done for me. I am forever in your debt. *Bows* If there's anything else that you need, don't hesitate to let me know. Regardless of what it is, I'd be more than happy to do it. Just name it, and it shall be done.
Nega Robotnik: …
(Eee hee hee… Things are turning out even better than expected! I guess luck is just on my side!) Well, Volcana, there is one other thing you could do for me at the moment. I'm currently in need of a fiery energy source to power a new creation of mine. Would you mind lending me a hand with that?
Volcana: Oh, is that all? Sure, why not?
Nega Robotnik: Excellent. *Takes out his dimensional camera and turns the knob, creating another dimensional portal* This way, please. *Jumps through*
Volcana: *Follows him*
*They find themselves at Dr. Nega's base*
Volcana: Wow, just…wow! *Looks around* This place…I've never seen anything like it before! It looks so…high-tech! I guess things have changed a lot from how they were back in my day.
Nega Robotnik: Yes, that's what happens. As time goes by, technological advancements are made. Anyway, here's the creation I was talking about. *Uncovers the robot, which turns out to be a Metal Sonic-esque clone of Blaze the Cat* This piece of work is known as Metal Blaze. Her design is based on one of my sworn enemies, and I created her to replace a rebellious, treacherous creation of mine known as Metal Sonic Version 3.0. For the most part, all preparations are in order, and like I said before, the only thing I'm missing is a power source.
Volcana: Just leave that to me, Doctor. *Powers up a blue, fiery orb at the palm of her hands* Will this do?
Nega Robotnik: Eee hee hee hee hee! Yes, that'll do just nicely! *Opens Metal Blaze*
Volcana: *Places the orb inside of her*
Nega Robotnik: *Closes it* Alright, now for the moment of truth… *Activates her*
Metal Blaze: …! *A red glow appears in her eyes as she sits up*
Nega Robotnik: Yes, she's alive! She's aliiiiiive!
Metal Blaze: *Faces Dr. Nega*
Nega Robotnik: Yes, look at me! Welcome to life! I am your brilliant creator, Doctor Nega! You, my friend, are one of the many brilliant inventions I've created thus far! You are the invincible being known only as "Metal Blaze".
Metal Blaze: Metal…Blaze?
Nega Robotnik: That's right. I've created you to perform certain tasks for me, but we'll get into that soon enough. For the time being, I would like to test your abilities in combat. *Looks toward Volcana* Would you like to give it a try, as well?
Volcana: Sure, why not?
Nega Robotnik: Alright then. Both of you, this way, please. *Walks off*
*Volcana and Metal Blaze follow him into a simulation room*
Nega Robotnik: Alright, now here's how we're going to do this. I'll be pitting the two of you against this squadron of Astro Badniks, and you will be scored based on how many you destroy. In a way, I suppose you could say that it's somewhat like a video game.
Volcana: Um, what's a video game?
Metal Blaze: …
Nega Robotnik: Ah, yes, I forgot… You were only recently set free, and as such, you haven't quite adapted to this era yet. I guess I'll have to explain that concept some other time. Now then… *Presses a button, and makes the Astro Badniks appear* Are you ready?
Volcana: It's been thousands of years since I've done this, so I might be a little rusty, but I'm willing to give it a shot anyway. What about you, Metal Blaze?
Metal Blaze: *Nods*
Nega Robotnik: Alright then! Let the games begin! *Presses another button*
*The Astro Badniks appear, and charge at Volcana and Metal Blaze*
Volcana: *Starts shooting them down with fireballs*
Metal Blaze: *Uses Blaze's fire spin technique*
Ten minutes later…
Metal Blaze: So, how did we do, Doctor?
Nega Robotnik: *Claps* Well done, you two! Not only were you in perfect sync with one another, but you both managed to successfully score over nine thousand points! Absolutely splendid!
Volcana: Thank you, thank you. *Stage bow*
Nega Robotnik: You're most welcome. By the way, Volcana, there's something I've been meaning to ask you…
Nega Robotnik: There are other Elemental Goddesses that exist in your dimension, correct? Exactly how many are there, other than yourself?
Volcana: Well, besides me, there's only two. The Wave Goddess, Oceana, and the Snow Goddess, Frostina. Unfortunately, I haven't spoken to them in thousands of years, and as such, I have no idea where they are, or whether or not they've been released as of yet.
Nega Robotnik: Ah, I see.
Volcana: Why do you ask? Do you intend to release them, as you've done for me?
Nega Robotnik: I'll be sure to cross that bridge when we come to it, but for the time being, there's something else I'd like to take care of, which I'm going to need yours and Metal Blaze's help for.
Volcana: Sure. Anything you need, Doctor N. Exactly what do you have in mind?
Nega Robotnik: Well…
Later on, during the middle of the night, outside of Dr. Robotnik's Mystic Ruins base…
Nega Robotnik: Alright, now here's the plan. First, you two will infiltrate the base. There are bound to be guard robots in the area, so Metal Blaze will act as a decoy and keep them busy. Volcana, on the other hand, will be able to sneak past them, and enter the production room, undetected.
Volcana: Ah, and from there, I'm supposed to swipe those blueprints that you need, right?
Nega Robotnik: Eee hee hee... Precisely! As for me, I'm going to set this dynamite pack for approximately ten minutes! When that's all said and done, we'll be able to make our escape, and whoever else is still inside of the base by the time the bomb detonates, will be blown to pieces before they even have the chance to know what hit them! EEE HEE HEE HEE HEE!!! *Ahem* Now then... *Walks over to the base, and sticks the dynamite pack to the side of it* The countdown has begun. We have a very limited amount of time to pull this mission off, and we only get one try, so failure is not an option!
Volcana: Don't you worry, Doctor N. Ten minutes should be more than enough time to pull this off. Don't you think so, Metal Blaze?
Metal Blaze: *Nods*
Volcana: Now, let's move! *Runs off*
Metal Blaze: *Jets after her*
Nega Robotnik: I'm counting on two!
*The alarm goes off*
Volcana: I guess it's time to get this party started!
*Metal Blaze starts fighting off the Badniks, while Volcana takes off and heads for the production room*
Volcana: *Takes out a walkie-talkie* Now, how do you use this thing again? Ah, yes, it was this button. *Presses it* Doctor N., I've made it past the guard robots. Which way should I go in order to reach this "production" room?
Nega Robotnik: *Through the communicator* Just keep going straight, and then make a left. When you do that, you should find an elevator and a stairway. From there, head all the way down to the bottom floor. That's where the production room is.
Volcana: Got it. *Hangs up and speeds in those directions*
Meanwhile, at the base's control/surveillance room, Egg-Robo, who was assigned to watch the base while Dr. Robotnik was away, spotted Metal Blaze's battle against the Badnik squadron on camera.
Egg-Robo: Huh? Well, well. It looks as if we have an intruder on our hands. Let's a closer look, shall we? *Zooms in* Hmm, it appears to be a robotic feline of some sort, whose design is reminiscent of the Metal Sonics; both the original and 3.0. Where did it come from? Who could have built it? I highly doubt that it's one of Dr. Robotnik's robots, since the Badniks do not recognize it, nor has the doctor ever made any mention of it. *Looks at the other monitor* Hmm? There's another intruder? *Zooms in* Ah, it's just Scorch. I guess I needn't concern myself, then.
*Volcana arrives at the bottom floor*
Volcana: So, this must be the production room that Doctor N. spoke of. Now, where do I find those blueprints? *Looks around*
Elsewhere, at the surveillance room again…
Egg-Robo: Wait a minute… Did she just say "Doctor N."? "N" as in "Nega", Dr. Robotnik's treacherous descendent!? What's Scorch doing associating with him!? Could it be…that she's decided to betray the doctor!? I should have known she was merely faking her loyalty all this time! It took her long enough, but it looks like she's finally shown her true colors!
Wait a minute, speaking of "colors", the color of her fur is a lot different from usual. I wonder why that is? Bah, it's probably nothing more than a pitiful attempt at a disguise so that we wouldn't catch on to her treachery. Well, you don't fool me, Scorch, the Goddess of Fire! I can see right THROUGH that fragile disguise of yours!
Meanwhile, at the production room again…
Volcana: Ah, I've found 'em! *Takes the blueprints to the EG Experiments and Egg Merger* Now that I've gotten what I need, I'm gonna go ahead and get out of here! *Runs off*
After successfully finding the blueprints, Volcana quickly fled the production room and began heading upstairs. While she was on her way out of the base, she ended up getting headed off by Egg-Robo, who was pointing a fully loaded blaster at her.
Egg-Robo: Hold it right there!
Egg-Robo: You're not going anywhere, traitor!
Volcana: "Traitor"? Have we…met?
Egg-Robo: Don't you play dumb with me, Scorch! I know all about how you betrayed Dr. Robotnik to side with Dr. Nega!
Volcana: Again with this "Scorch"! You're the second person to mistake me for her today!
Egg-Robo: Oh, please. What kind of fool do you take me for? Did you seriously think that I, or anyone else, would be stupid enough to fall for such a fragile disguise?
Volcana: *Has a confused "WTF?" expression on her face*
Nega Robotnik: *Through the communicator* Have you found the blueprints yet?
Volcana: Yes. I found them a few minutes ago.
Nega Robotnik: Eee hee hee! Excellent work, as always! I knew I could count on you! Now, just to refresh your memory, this base is set to explode, and the bomb will be detonating within the next three minutes! I highly recommend getting out of there now, while you still have the chance!
Volcana: *Nods* Right! *Hangs up*
Egg-Robo: What!? Did I hear that correctly!? A bomb's been planted at this base!?
Volcana: I guess the secret's out, then. It's been nice chatting with you, but I've gotta jet!
Egg-Robo: Oh, no you don't! You're not going anywhere! *Shoots at her*
Volcana: *Dodges the lasers, surrounds her fist with fire, and punches Egg-Robo through the wall*
Egg-Robo: UHHHHHHH!!! *Czzzzt!*
Volcana: Doctor N., I'm on my way! *Gets a running start and flies off at high speed*
Meanwhile, at the Mystic Ruins jungle, a battle-damaged Metal Sonic Version 3.0 was on his way back to the base for repairs.
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Slowly flying through the air, with a slight limp* Ghhhh…! *Czzzzt!* C-Curse him, that piece of outdated trash! *Czzzzt!* Someday, Metal Sonic, I WILL even the score! *Czzzzt!* I'll crush you… *Czzzzt!* Like the obsolete worm you truly are! *Czzzzt!*
Hmm? That alarm…it's coming from Dr. Robotnik's base! *Czzzzt!* I don't know what's going on… *Czzzzzt!* …But whatever it is, I'm going to put a stop to it! *Speeds up*
With the base set to explode in only a matter of minutes, and with Egg-Robo out of commission, along with Scorch and Dr. Robotnik's absence, does Metal Sonic 3.0 have what it takes to reach the bomb and deactivate it on time before it detonates? If not, will Volcana and/or Egg-Robo be able to escape in time before it does? Also, for what purpose was Dr. Nega seeking those blueprints? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 4: Dimensional Chaos!
To "bee" continued…
- This episode has the distinction of being the only one where neither Knuckles, Scorch, or Dr. Robotnik made an appearance in the first chapter.
