Last time, on the Elements of Power Christmas Special, Metal Sonic suddenly busted into Cream and Vanilla's house while they were in the middle of a Christmas gathering. Since Metal Sonic had been programmed to be on the heroes' side sometime ago, everyone assumed that Dr. Robotnik (who claimed to have changed) was behind it, but even after he assured everyone that he had nothing to do with it, they still didn't believe him. That is, until Dr. Nega, his crazed descendant from the future, arrived on the scene and revealed that he was the true mastermind. As it turns out, the "reprogramming" was due to a virus program that Dr. Nega developed, which he decided to use Metal Sonic as a test subject for.
In order to demonstrate the effects of the Nega Virus, he decided to infect the Badniks that Dr. Robotnik brought to the party, as well, which Slush managed to dismiss by freezing them. Using Metal Sonic as a distraction, Dr. Nega used his dimensional camera to turn Cheese and Chocola into cards, and fled the scene. After dealing with Metal Sonic, the heroes quickly chased after Nega and had him cornered. Shortly afterwards, he decided to use the other function of his camera to open a dimensional gateway between their world and the Ifrit's, allowing the fiery creature to pass through seamlessly. The moment it appeared, Dr. Nega changed Cheese and Chocola back to their original state, and tried feeding them to the Ifrit, but before it had the chance to eat them, Metal Sonic Version 3.0, of all people, in a surprising turn of events, decided to rescue them! However, according to himself, he had his own reasons for doing so, which was to copy their data into his programming.
As soon as the Ifrit began to set its sights on Cheese and Chocola again, Blaze urged Cream to escape and get the two Chao as far from that area as possible. Just when Nega was about to use his camera to stop her, Silvra used a hydro attack to make it malfunction. Enraged over Silvra ruining his dimensional camera, Dr. Nega ordered the Ifrit to destroy her, as well as the rest of the heroes. Shortly after Charmy expressed concern that they wouldn't be able to defeat the Ifrit without the Chaos Emeralds, Blaze reassured him by saying that she had the Sol Emeralds with her. With that said, they all decided to use them to turn into their "super" forms, so they could stop the Ifrit.
Even with the power of the seven Sol Emeralds, will they have what it takes to put a stop to the Ifrit, and prevent it from destroying their dimension? Find out as the story concludes on the Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power Christmas Special!
Wechnia: She's right. Since we're going directly into battle with the Ifrit, it's going to be nearly impossible for the gem to be able to avoid direct contact with its flames.
Scorch: That won't be necessary. Iblis isn't trapped inside of it anymore.
Super Silver: He isn't!?
Burning Blaze: What!? You mean to tell us that that creature is somewhere running rampant right now!?
Scorch: No, I'm saying that it's trapped elsewhere. A few months ago, Dr. Robotnik created a "Scepter of Flames", using the same material that the Scepter of Darkness was built with. From there, I transferred Iblis from the Fire Element Gem into the scepter.
Super Silver: Whew… THAT's a relief!
Burning Blaze: That's for sure!
Super Espio: Okay, so now that we have that cleared up, why don't we turn our focus back to taking down the Ifrit?
Ifrit: *Insert loud growl here*
Super Sonic: Heh! You think you could intimidate us with just a few growls? Come on! Let's see what you could do!
Ifrit: *Blows fire at them*
*They dodge, and start flying towards the Ifrit*
Ifrit: *Flaps its wings and starts blowing them back with gusts of wind*
Storm: Oh, please. Do you truly think you could effectively use something like that on ME, a Wind Goddess? Here, let me show you how it's done! Aero Star Pow-
Before Storm had the chance to finish her sentence, she suddenly found herself getting smacked away by the Ifrit's tail.
Storm: *Stops herself in mid-air* Don't worry, I'm fine.
Super Knuckles: It's worth a shot. Come on, let's do it!
*They fly towards the Ifrit again*
Ifrit: *Opens its mouth and spits a flaming ball of charcoal at them*
Super Tails: Uh oh! That can't be good!
Super Charmy: Hee hee, "that can't bee good". Get it?
Splash: *Holds in a laugh* Charmy, please. Save it for after the Ifrit's beaten, okay?
Super Charmy: Okay.
Super Knuckles: *Punches through the charcoal* Nice try, but not good enough!
After shattering the charcoal ball into pieces, everyone quickly charged their Sol Emerald power, flew towards the Ifrit at high speed, and used the Team Blast technique (from Sonic Heroes), constantly crashing into the creature and dealing a significant amount of damage.
Ifrit: *Growls in pain*
Super Mighty: Looks like it's working!
Super Vector: Heh heh, yep! Now we're in business, boys…'n' girls.
Seedra: Yeah. I guess that means we should keep this up.
*They fly towards the Ifrit again*
Just as the heroes were in the process of flying toward the Ifrit, getting ready to use the Team Blast again, the fiery creature opened its mouth and blew fire again, but rather than it being a regular flame blast this time around, it was a fire tornado, which they all ended up getting caught in.
Nega Robotnik: *From below* EEE HEE HEE HEE HEE! Yes, that's right! Keep it up, Ifrit! Crush those insolent fools! Make them suffer! Burn them to ashes! Kick them to the outer limits of-
Ifrit: *Sets its sight on Nega, and spits a flaming ball of charcoal at him before he finishes his sentence*
Nega Robotnik: GAH! *Dodges* Wait a minute, what are you doing!? I'm the one who freed you and brought you back to this dimension, you know! I'M not your enemy, they are! Attack THEM, not me, you ungrateful fool!
*Suddenly, the fire tornado disappears*
Nega Robotnik: WHAT!?
Scorch: *Places the Fire Element Gem back in her tiara* I knew that would do the trick!
Slush: Good thinking, Scorch.
Ifrit: *Charges toward them*
Super Charmy: Uh oh, it's heading right for us!
Super Sonic: Why don't we use our special attacks this time? SONIC WIND!
Burning Blaze: FIRESOUL ATTACK!
Super Silver: PSYCHIC CONTROL!
Super Knuckles: THUNDER ARROW!
Super Mighty: COSMIC CRUSHER!
Scorch: NOVA STAR POWERRRR!
Splash: AQUA STAR POWERRRR!
Slush: ARCTIC STAR POWERRRR!
Squash: GEO STAR POWERRRR!
Seedra: SOLAR STAR POWERRRR!
Shock: ELECTRO STAR POWERRRR!
Storm: AERO STAR POWERRRR!
Silvra: MULTI-STAR POWERRRR!
Ifrit: *Insert loud growl here as it gets caught in the explosion*
Super Charmy: Alright! I think we did it, you guys!
Super Shadow: Although we've done a significant amount of damage to the Ifrit, I don't think that was enough to destroy it, so we shouldn't let our guards down just yet.
Wechnia: I could still feel its lifeforce, so the Ifrit's definitely still alive, no doubt about it.
Super Espio: Our ring energy is on the verge of depletion… Why don't we use the remaining time we have to get ourselves some more?
Shock: Yeah, you do that. We'll hold him off until you guys get back.
Super Sonic: Okay. Let's blast through with Sonic speed!
Ray: *From below* We're way ahead o' ya! We've already collected some rings for you guys.
Cream: Yep, they're right down here!
Marine: Help yourselves, mates!
*Everyone (except for the Elemental Goddesses) hovers down to get the rings*
Super Sonic: Thanks, guys. We appreciate it.
Tiara: Sure. Anything for you, Sonic. *Winks at him*
Amy: *Looks at Tiara with shifty eyes*
Super Shadow: Alright, now that we've been re-energized, let's finish taking down the Ifrit!
*They fly back into the sky and re-join the Goddesses in battle*
Nega Robotnik: HA! Even without the Chao, the Ifrit's might is STILL more than enough to destroy them!
Amy: That's what YOU think you mustached monkey!
Robotnik: *Walks by, with Metal Sonic* "Mustached monkey"!? I am the world's greatest-… No, wait, you were talking about Nega, weren't you?
Mecha Amy: Wow, you fixed Metal Sonic already?
Robotnik: Yes, I did, thanks to the Nega Virus cure that Metal Sonic 3.0 dropped off.
Mecha Amy: Huh? HE went out of his way to help Metal Sonic? What for?
Robotnik: He said that his reason for doing so, is because he wouldn't get any satisfaction out of defeating Metal Sonic in an inactive state, nor while he's under mind control. He says that it would be best if Metal Sonic were to "have recollection of his defeat".
Mecha Amy: Oh. I guess THAT explains it.
Nega Robotnik: Bah, whatever. Now that the Ifrit has been reawakened, I have no further use for Metal Sonic anyhow! After it's finished disposing of the rest of these fools, I'll be free to proceed with my plans! With the Ifrit's power at my disposal, the world shall be my plaything! I shall bring about an age of fear and chaos! And it shall be glorious! Eee hee hee hee hee!
Metal Sonic: *Glares at Dr. Nega*
Robotnik: By the way, Nega… I think it's fair that I warn you that Metal Sonic isn't very happy with you, since you decided to use him as a test subject for the Nega Virus against his will. So, if I were you, I'd be running right about now.
Nega Robotnik: That won't be necessary. Why run when I could just do THIS? *Takes out his laptop again*
Metal Sonic: *Blasts it with an eye laser*
Nega Robotnik: NOOOO! MY COMPUTER!
Metal Sonic: Considering what I have in store for you, that computer should be the least of your worries…
*The virus-purged Badniks arrive on the scene shortly afterwards*
Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA… How do you like THAT, Nega? Not only does Metal Sonic have a bone to pick with you, but so do they!
Nega Robotnik: This isn't good… *Starts backing away, and then runs off*
Metal Sonic: GET HIM! *Dashes after him*
*The Badniks do the same*
Nega Robotnik: GAH! CURSES!
*Everyone laughs as they chase Nega off*
*Seconds later, off in the distance, an explosion is heard, and Nega is seen flying over the horizon*
Nega Robotnik: AAAAAAAAHHHH!!! YOU'LL REGRET THIS!!!
Heavy: HAHAHAHAHAHA… Priceless!
Amy: Serves him right!
Ray: That's for sure!
Tikal: I couldn't agree more! I can't believe he'd so such a thing, using poor, innocent Chao as a sacrifice!
Chaos: *Nods in agreement*
Honey: Yeah, that's pretty low, even for him.
*Metal Sonic and the Badniks come back*
Robotnik: Well done, Metal Sonic. I suppose this means you're free to settle things with Metal Sonic 3.0?
Metal Sonic: That pathetic excuse for an imitation could wait. For the time being, I'm going to join the others in taking down the Ifrit. However, Three-Point Zero is next on my agenda after I'm through with it.
Amy: Well, alright. Good luck!
*He absorbs the power of the Sol Emeralds, turns super, and joins the battle*
So then, the battle against the Ifrit continued. With each second that passed, it began to get more and more intense, with both the heroes and the Ifrit fighting each other face-to-face, matching each other blow-for-blow. After a while…
Super Charmy: Man… This thing is really, REALLY strong!
Super Mighty: I agree. No matter what we throw at it, it just keeps coming back for more!
Super Vector: Yeah, 'n' it didn't even get the chance to eat any o' the Chao!
Ifrit: *Opens its mouth, and starts charging up a fire attack*
Super Vector: Uh oh… It's 'bout ta attack again! Brace yaselves, everybody!
After the Ifrit was finishing charging its attack, it "fired" a large blast at the heroes, which was a combination of both fire and lava. However, before it had the chance to hit them, Splash and Slush countered it with their water and snow-based attacks, effectively dousing it in the process.
Splash: Take this! *Fires another hydro blast, this time at the Ifrit*
Slush: HAAAAAH! *Fires an ice blast*
Ifrit: *Insert loud growling here*
Storm: *Joins in, using a wind-based attack*
Silvra: *Uses a combination of all three abilities*
Wechnia: Yes, it's working! I could feel its lifeforce rapidly decreasing!
Super Knuckles: Alright, then I guess that means it's time to deliver the finishing blow!
Super Sonic: Alright! Let's show that thing the REAL super power of teamwork!
With that said, all of the heroes charged their Sol Emerald power once again, and charged toward the weakened Ifrit at high speed, using the Team Blast attack once again. This time, however, they didn't just crash into the creature; this time, they crashed through it, effectively putting a large hole through its stomach.
Ifrit: RAAAAAAAGGGGGHHHH!!! *Falls from the sky*
Rouge: *Notices it* …! LOOK OUT!
Omega: Affirmative! Everyone, evacuate immediately!
*They run off as the Ifrit falls to its doom, and a huge explosion occurs*
Super Charmy: Alright, we did it! We beat the Ifrit, you guys! WHOO HOO!
Super Vector: Yep! Again, all in a day's work!
*They hover down to the ground and revert to their regular forms*
Amy: SOOONNNIIIC! *Starts rushing over there to go hug him*
Tiara: *Sticks out the handle of her jeweled staff, causing Amy to trip over it*
Amy: Oooof! *Falls flat on her face*
Tiara: I'M going to be the one to hug him first! *Runs off*
Amy: *Sits up* Oooh…! Why, you! *Takes out her hammer and tosses it at Tiara's head*
Tiara: Uhhhhhh! *Gets hit in the back of the head and falls over*
Amy: *Pulls down her eyelid and sticks her tongue at Tiara*
*Soon, a fight breaks out between them, and they fight in a smoke cloud (like in cartoons)*
Silver: You could say THAT again…
Heavy: All of this over someone who wants nothing to do with either of them… I've said it before, and I'll say it again: How long is it going to take for them to get the message already?
Bomb: *Shrugs* At this rate, it doesn't look like they ever will, unless Sonic decides to tell them off.
Sonic: ...You know, I've actually considered doing that several times, but never got around to it. You just don't know HOW close I am to doing it.
Porkenstein: So, umm… Anyway, it would appear as if that savage beast is finally out of the picture, and that madman's ambitions were never realized. Well done, everyone!
Tails: Thanks, Professor.
Espio: Hopefully this time, we've seen the last of the Ifrit.
Shadow: Yes, indeed. This time, I'm certain that it's been destroyed. There doesn't seem to be a shred a left of it.
Charmy: Hee hee, "bee a shred left of it". Get it? *Snickers*
Marine: Heh heh! Good one, mate!
Splash: Yes, I agree! *Giggles*
Seedra: Um, yeah. Real nice.
Vanilla: *Arrives with Cheese and Chocola*
Cream: Mother, guess what! The monster that Dr. Nega brought over here… It's been beaten! Cheese and Chocola are safe now!
Vanilla: Yes, I saw. I was watching that fight the entire time, and you guys were truly amazing!
Vector: Y-Ya really think so? ^^;
Vanilla: Why, yes, of course.
Vector: G-Gee, t-thanks. ^^;
Vanilla: You're welcome.
Vector: *Glares at them* What're YOU two laughin' at?
Charmy: I'm sorry, but this HAS to be said! Vanilla, Vector has a cru-
Vector: *Covers his mouth*
Vanilla: Hmm? Come again?
Marine: He's tryin' to tell ya that he's got the hots for ya!
Vector: GAH! Why, you li'l…!
Wow, I…really don't know what to say. Is…is this true, Vector?
Vector: *Blushes* U-Uh, w-well, you see, I, um…
Charmy: It is, it is! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Vector: Okay, now 'dat does it! Earlia today, I SAID I'd knock yer freakin' block off if ya opened your yap about that, didn't I!? Well, now I'm 'bout to do JUST that!
Charmy: GOTTA GO! *Flies off*
Marine: Hey! Wait for me!
Vector: GET BACK 'ERE! *Chases after them*
*He chases them around, and people laugh about it*
Knuckles: Heh heh heh! Some things just never change, do they?
Rouge: You got that right. Those two just never learn.
Mighty: This makes like, what, the eighth time that's happened so far?
Espio: Yes, that's exactly how many times it was. First, it was Knuckles who chased Charmy around, then it was Rouge, then the next two times, it was both of them, then Vector, then Silver and Blaze, then Seedra, and this time around, it's back to Vector.
Honey: Wow, I had no idea it happened THAT many times!
Knuckles: It wouldn't have if Charmy didn't have such a hard time keeping his mouth shut about that sort of thing.
Blaze: Yes. The same thing applies to Marine.
Silver: A while ago, when you said that the two of them would end up becoming best friends if they ever met, I wasn't even a little bit surprised to see that it actually happened.
Blaze: Neither was I.
And so, thanks to the heroic efforts of Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the rest of the heroes, the Ifrit was defeated, and Dr. Nega's plans were thwarted once again. With him out of the picture for the time being, and with the Ifrit permanently laid to rest, they were all free to continue enjoying themselves at Cream and Vanilla's Christmas gathering; not only to celebrate the holiday season, but their hard-earned victory over the forces of evil. At long last, the world is at peace once more…for now. What other adventures and conflicts await our heroes in the future? Find out as the saga continues in the next story, Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 4: Dimensional Chaos!
