When we last left off, exactly one year had passed since the first Christmas Special, and Cream and her mother, Vanilla were having a second Christmas gathering, and ended up inviting many of their friends in the process, starting with Amy Rose, Big the Cat, and EG-005/Silvra, followed by the Chaotix team and many others. For the most part, everyone was enjoying themselves, minus Amy and Tiara Boobowski, who ended up blowing a fuse over the Thunder Goddess, PG-003/Electra trying to get a kiss from Sonic under the mistletoe.
Just as that was going on, Metal Sonic Version 3.0 suddenly burst through the window out of nowhere, much to everyone's surprise. Even more surprising than that, he had his sights set on Vanilla, of all people, and attempted to attack her! When he was asked why he was doing this, he refused to give an explanation, and declared that he was going to destroy anyone who tries to stand in his way, a challenge that Sonic and company willingly accepted.
Now, the question remains… Exactly why has Metal Sonic 3.0 come, and for what purpose is he targeting Vanilla? Could he have truly gotten himself reprogrammed as Scorch has begun to suspect? Or could there be another problem, lurking beneath our heroes' noses? Find out as the saga continues on the second Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power Christmas Special!
Metal Sonic 3.0: You… *Looks toward Vanilla* You don't truly believe you could fool ME with that fragile disguise, do you?
*Everyone has blank "WTF?" expressions on their faces*
Knuckles: Huh? What's he talking about?
Vanilla: Don't ask me. I don't have the slightest clue!
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Briefly glares at Vector from the corner of his eye* It would be a wise decision on your part to NEVER utter the name of that obsolete scum in my presence again.
Mecha Amy: Hey, hey! Don't you talk about my Metal Sonic that way! As far as I'M concerned, the only "scum" around here is YOU!
Metal Sonic 3.0: Says an outdated machine like you? Don't make me laugh.
Mecha Amy: GRRR...
Vanilla: (Oh, SOMEONE'S "outdated", alright…)
Metal Sonic 3.0: As for you… *Looks toward Vanilla* You can continue playing ignorant as you see fit, but I'm not convinced! Not in the least! *Fires another eye laser at her*
Vanilla: Ahhhh! *Ducks under it*
Vector: A'ight, that does it! *Runs toward 3.0 and shoulder-bashes him*
Metal Sonic 3.0: Uhhhhh! *Stumbles backward and falls over*
Vector: Look, buddy, I dunno what 'cha problem is, but if you wanna get ta Vanilla, then you're gonna hafta go through ME first!
Charmy: Yeah! Us, too!
*The others agree to that, too*
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Gets back up* Is that a challenge?
Vector: Ya beddah believe it is! *Looks toward everyone else* If ya don't mind, I'd like to take care o' this by myself.
Vanilla: Are you absolutely sure about this, Vector?
Vector: Sure, I can take 'em!
Charmy: Ohhhh, I get it! You're doing this to try to impress Vanilla, right? *Snickers*
Marine: *Snickers, too*
Vector: Oh, be quiet, will ya? *Looks toward Three-Point Zero* You, me, outside, right now! *Motions his thumb towards the door*
Metal Sonic 3.0: Not that you're worth my time, but very well. Who am I to turn down a deathwish?
*They go outside*
Vanilla: (Now THIS should be amusing…) *Smirks*
Scorch: *Notices* (That's odd… What's the deal with that sinister-looking smirk of hers? I'm starting to agree with Three-Point Zero now… Something definitely ISN'T right about her…)
Metal Sonic 3.0: Go ahead. Try coming at me again. That is, if you're truly feeling courageous enough.
Vector: Fine! You asked for it! *Charges toward him*
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Catches him in a telekinetic grip*
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Tosses him into onto a nearby tree*
Vector: UHHHHHH! *Slams his back on the tree bark, and then falls face-first into the snow*
Vanilla: Oh, my goodness! Vector!
Metal Sonic 3.0: Hmph. Pathetic vermin. Stay out of my way. *Turns around, and starts heading back to the house*
Vector: H-Hold it! *Sits up*
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Stops and turns around*
Vector: I ain't through wit' 'chu yet! *Stands up*
Metal Sonic 3.0: So, you do still have some fight left in you…
Vector: Yeah, well don't think anymore o' your stolen fightin' techniques are gonna work on me, ya hear?
Metal Sonic 3.0: "Stolen" or not, it was enough to catch you off guard, was it not?
Vector: Maybe, but as ya can see, it wasn't enough ta beat me, since I'm still standin'. Now, I'd say that's about it for the talkin'. Whadda ya say we go ahead 'n' get this ovah wit'? *Cracks his knuckles*
Metal Sonic 3.0: I have no objection to that. *Fires an eye laser at Vector*
Vector: Whoa! *Dodges*
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Continues firing at him*
Vector: *Avoids those, too, and gets close enough for another shoulder-bash attack*
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Turns on his jet booster, and hovers into the air*
Vector: Hey! Get back down here 'n' fight, ya stinkin' coward!
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Rolls into a spinball and Homing Attacks him*
Vector: Uhhhhhh! *Falls over*
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Fire another beam at him, this time from his chest cavity*
Vector: *Rolls over, and stands up again*
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Jets toward Vector, attempting to Homing Attack him again*
Vector: Not THIS time! *Catches him*
Metal Sonic 3.0: WHAT!?
Vector: *Starts dribbling him like a basketball*
Metal Sonic 3.0: What are you…!? *Czzzzzt!* Uhhhhhh! *Czzzzzt!*
Charmy: Hee hee! This is really, REALLY funny! Don't you think?
Slush: I'll say!
Mecha Amy: I agree! *Giggles*
Vector: *Tosses 3.0 into the air, and blows a bubblegum bomb in his direction*
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Unrolls, and stops himself in midair* *Czzzzt!* I'm going to make your death nice and- *Stops midsentence after noticing the bubblegum bomb* WHAT!?
*It explodes, and Metal Sonic 3.0 is sent flying*
Metal Sonic 3.0: YOU'LL PAY FOR THIS, YOU FILTHY YOU VERMIN! *Czzzzzt!*
Vector: Go right ahead 'n' come back! I'd be more than happy ta give ya some more! *Waves his fist, and goes back in the house*
Sonic: Vector, that was sweet! You sure showed that faker who's boss!
*Other people say something similar*
Vector: Thanks, ya guys.
Vanilla: I don't know what's gotten into him lately, but thank you for saving me, Vector. That was very nice of you. *Kisses him on the cheek*
Vector: I-It was nothin'! Really! ^^;; *Blushes*
*Charmy and Marine start snickering*
Vector: Whadda YOU laughin' at?
Charmy: Vector and Vanilla, sittin' in a tree! K-I-S-S-I-N-G-!
Vector: Hey! Cuddit out, will ya!?
Marine: First comes love, then comes marriage!
Charmy: Then comes the baby in a baby carriage!
Vector: Why, you li'l…!
Vanilla: Now, now, just calm down, Vector. Children will be children, after all.
Scorch: *Starts heading out the door*
Syndra: Where are you going?
Scorch: I'm gonna go have a little talk with Three-Point Zero, and see if I could get to the bottom of this.
Syndra: Mind if I come with you?
Scorch: Sure, if you want to. Cream, you might want to do the same, because this also concerns you.
Cream: Okay. You don't mind, do you, Mother?
Vanilla: No, not at all, but do be careful, dear.
*Scorch, Syndra, Cream, Cheese, and Chocola head out the door*
Slush: You know, it just occurred to me… Do you think Dr. Nega could have something to do with what's going on? After all, something similar happened with the original Metal Sonic last year, and Nega turned out to be behind the entire thing.
Charmy: Hee hee, "beehind the entire thing". Get it? *Snickers*
Marine: Rippa as always, mate!
Seedra: I'll say!
Heavy: Ugh… Anyway, and you were saying, Slush? Something about Nega being behind this, right?
Volcana: Trust me, Doctor N. doesn't have anything to do with this. It wasn't that long ago that he caught a cold of some sort, so he's been bedridden throughout most of the day.
Tornada: He got rid of his bed? Does this mean he's sleeping on the floor now? That must be very uncomfortable for him…
*They anime fall*
Stonia: …No, Tornada. She means that he's sick and lying down in the bed.
Tornada: Ohhhh, okay.
Luna: Hmph, serves him right! Personally, if you ask me, I'd say even THAT'S too good for him!
Oceana: Now, I wouldn't go so far as to wish death upon him, exactly, but at the same time, I still can't bring myself to feel even the least bit sorry for that Nega creep. Especially after the way he used us as pawns in his scheme all those months ago…
Luna: Yeah. Even up to this day, I still feel so ashamed and embarrassed for actually buying into all that crap he fed us…
Frostina: That's true, but there is at least one good thing that came out of it. If Dr. Nega hadn't done what he did, then we wouldn't have had these four wonderful new sisters; or five, if you'd like to count Goldra…
Woodra: Aww, that's very nice of you to say. Thanks, Frostina, you just made my day!
*Stonia, Electra, and Tornada say something similar to that, but without the rhymes*
Frostina: Anytime. Speaking of Goldra, it's kind of a shame she couldn't make it… (The same goes for Black-Hog…)
Heavy: …Are you serious? Not only did you use "Goldra" and "wonderful" in the same sentence, but you actually entertained the thought of bringing THAT lunatic over here? Really?
Silvra: I couldn't have said that any better myself. Just hearing her name is enough to literally make me sick to my stomach.
Frostina: I can kind of understand where you're coming from, but Goldra's not the same person she used to be. Sure, she may still be a bit on the egotistical side, but other than that, she truly is a nice person once you get to know her.
Woodra: Ah, well. That's all in the past. For now, let's just continue the party and have a blast!
*The party continues*
A little while later, somewhere far from Vanilla's house…
Scorch: Hey, Three-Point Zero, I'm glad I found you. Are you alright?
Metal Sonic 3.0: I'm just fine. *Czzzzt!* I have a built-in auto-recovery system, so there's nothing to worry about. I can take care of myself.
Syndra: Now that we've got that out of the way, why don't you tell us why you're after Miss Vanilla?
Metal Sonic 3.0: What, you haven't noticed yet?
Scorch: Actually, I did notice that there was something slightly strange about her, but I don't think any of the others caught onto it…
Cream: So, are you saying that he's right about someone pretending to be my mother, Miss Scorch?
Scorch: Possibly. Since you were the one who brought this to our attention, Three-Point Zero, do you happen to have any idea who that truly is?
Metal Sonic 3.0: As a matter of fact, I do. The true identity of the imposter is none other than…
A short while later…
Scorch: THAT'S who it is!? I seem to remember hearing that you destroyed him sometime ago!
Metal Sonic 3.0: I thought so, too, but evidently, he's still alive.
Cream: If it was him all along, then where's my real mother!?
Metal Sonic 3.0: I don't have that information as of yet.
Syndra: Why couldn't you just say this in the first place?
Metal Sonic 3.0: That's because I'm under no obligation to explain myself to vermin like them.
Scorch: Hey, what did I tell you about that before? You said you'd quit talking down on them, remember?
Metal Sonic 3.0: Bah, whatever. Now, in the meantime, I have some unfinished business I need to attend to. *Turns on his jet booster, and flies away*
Metal Sonic: …Was that 3.0 who just flew by?
Scorch: As a matter of fact, it was. Anyway, I'm glad to have run into you guys.
Squash: You are? Not that I'm complaining or anything, but why's that, exactly?
Scorch: You see… *Explains the situation*
Metal Sonic: WHAT!? He's still alive!? Ugh, it's already irritating enough that 3.0 could never stay dead, but him, too!?
Shadow: It's a good thing we were already on our way over there, because when we do arrive, we'll be able to put a stop to him!
Rouge: I still don't get it… Why would he need to impersonate Vanilla, of all people?
Scorch: That, we don't know yet. I guess we'll find out as soon as we get there and have him exposed.
Omega: Then what are we waiting for? Let's proceed, so that we can exterminate him!
Metal Sonic: This time, I'll make sure he doesn't return!
*They take off*
At last, Metal Sonic 3.0's reason for breaking into the house to attack Vanilla has been revealed! Apparently, the "Vanilla" he was after was none other than an imposter, which both Metal Sonics apparently seem to be familiar with. Exactly what is the true identity of Vanilla's impersonator, and what has become of the real one? Find out in the next exciting chapter of the second Elements of Power Christmas Special!
