|Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 1: Legend of the Elemental Gems|
February 14, 2011
Last time, on Elements of Power, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the rest of the heroes began to chase down Metal Sonic Version 3.0, who made off with the Master Emerald. During their pursuit, they were led into a base that was located deep within the Mystic Ruins, which happened to be one of Dr. Robotnik's old hideouts. While inside of the base, they destroyed each and every Badnik in their path, until they came across what appeared to be Robotnik. However, they soon found out that their suspicions were correct; it was, in fact, Dr. Nega in disguise.
He then revealed that he had been impersonating the real Robotnik ever since Scorch went to go find Slush and lead her to Robotnik's airbase after she had gotten lost. The real Dr. Robotnik was being held captive inside of a card, thanks to Nega's camera. After taking the Master Emerald and fleeing the scene, Nega Robotnik left Metal Sonic 3.0 to deal with the heroes. However, the original Metal Sonic, who apparently had a score to settle with his copy, decided to take him on instead, while everyone else goes after Dr. Nega.
Will Metal Sonic be able to summon the power to do away with his doppelganger? Also, for what purpose has Dr. Nega stolen the Emeralds? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power!
*Both Metal Sonics Homing Attack one another and fly backwards*
Metal Sonic 3.0: *A green glow surrounds him, as he begins to hold out the palm of his hand and lift a few surrounding objects*
Metal Sonic: So, you also have the ability to copy data?
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Begins hurling the objects at him*
Metal Sonic: *Turns on his jet booster and starts dodging them*
As Metal Sonic dodged the attacks, he continued moving towards Three-Point Zero until he got close enough to successfully perform another Homing Attack, causing his doppelganger to fall over.
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Czzzzt!*
Metal Sonic: Is THAT all the power that you possess? Pathetic.
Shortly afterwards, Metal Sonic 3.0 got back up, held out the palm of his hand again, and got Metal Sonic caught in a telekinetic grip, constricting him of any movement.
Metal Sonic: W-What!?
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Tosses Metal Sonic into a wall*
After that, Metal Sonic 3.0 continued using telekinesis on his counterpart, and began to continuously slam him into the wall, dealing massive amounts of damage. This process continued for a while, until he finally decided to release Metal Sonic by dropping him onto the floor.
Metal Sonic: *Kneels down and holds his arm* *Czzzzzt!*
Metal Sonic 3.0: HAHAHAHAHAHA… "Is THAT all the power that you possess? Pathetic."
Metal Sonic: You…can speak?
Metal Sonic 3.0: Yes, as you can see.
Metal Sonic: Your telekinetic abilities… You copied them…from Silver, did you not?
Metal Sonic 3.0: That is correct. I've also obtained data from the one you call "Blaze", as well as many others. Where's all that bravado now, you outdated machine? Have you finally come to the realization that you're outmatched? That's perfectly understandable, considering the fact that the technological advancements that I've been equipped with are two decades ahead of your own.
Metal Sonic: Regardless…of how "advanced" you claim to be, you are still nothing more than a copy! *Gets back up* I am the original… The one and only REAL Sonic! *Dashes toward him*
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Catches him in a telekinetic grip again* It's no use!
Metal Sonic: Ghhhh…!
Metal Sonic 3.0: To reiterate, there's no possible way that an outdated machine, such as yourself, will ever stand a chance against the likes of me! It's hardly worth my time to toy with you anymore. It's time to end this!
Just as Metal Sonic 3.0 was getting ready to toss him aside, Metal Sonic began to surround himself a red, electrical glow.
Metal Sonic 3.0: Hmm!? What's this!?
Metal Sonic: Behold the ultimate power! CHAOS… BLAST!
Metal Sonic 3.0: UHHHHHHH! *Czzzzzt!*
The force of energy from the Chaos Blast was enough to damage Metal Sonic 3.0 and send him flying across the room, into the wall.
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Czzzt!* So…it would appear that you DO still have some fight left in you. Now, the real battle begins! Prepare to be ripped apart and thrown into the scrap heap, you inferior, outdated model! Firesoul… ATTACK! *Fires*
Metal Sonic: Chaos… SPEAR!
*The blasts collide with each other and create a small explosion*
Metal Sonic 3.0: DIE! *Aims his finger and starts firing lasers*
Metal Sonic: *Dodges and fires an eye laser*
Both Metal Sonics continued firing and dodging each other's laser attacks. This pattern repeated itself for quite some time, until Metal Sonic 3.0 decided lift the objects around him with telekinesis again, getting ready to toss them at his counterpart. Noticing that he left himself wide open, Metal Sonic quickly dashed towards his doppelganger, rolled into a spinball, and bashed him, shoving him through the wall, and into another room.
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Czzzzt!* *Regains his composure, grabs Metal Sonic, and slams him onto the ground*
Metal Sonic: *Czzzzzt!* *Grabs him by the foot and does the same*
*They roll around the floor fighting, with a smoke cloud around them (like in cartoons), indicating intense hand-to-hand combat*
The battle between Metal Sonic and Metal Sonic 3.0 began to get even more intense, as they continued to match each other blow-for-blow, crashing through various walls and going from room-to-room.
Knuckles: End of the line, Nega! Hand over the Master Emerald! NOW!
Blaze: The Sol Emeralds, too!
Scorch: Also, Dr. Robotnik's card and the camera along with it!
Nega Robotnik: Well, let's just see you take them! Eee hee hee hee…
Knuckles: Oh, I've got NO problem with that! *Cracks his knuckles*
*Just then, the two Metal Sonics crash into their room*
Sonic: This is pretty intense!
Vector: I've GOTTA record this! *Takes out his camcorder*
Metal Sonic 3.0: *Czzzzzt!* An outdated machine like YOU can't beat me! *Holds out the palm of his hand*
Charmy: Hey, I didn't know he could talk!
Espio: Neither did I, actually.
Metal Sonic: Chaos…CONTROL!
Before Metal Sonic 3.0 had the chance to get him caught in his telekinetic grasp once again, Metal Sonic used Chaos Control to slow time. Metal Sonic then surrounded his fist with fire, dashed towards Three-Point Zero, and jammed his fist through his stomach.
Metal Sonic 3.0: UHHHHHHH! *Czzzzzzt!* H-How did you…!?
Metal Sonic: I TOLD you…no matter how advanced you claim to be, you could never outclass the original! I have said it before, and I'll say it again: There's only ONE real, true Sonic…and that's ME! Firesoul Attack! *Blasts him*
Since Metal Sonic's hand was jammed through Three-Point Zero's stomach, including his circuitry, the Firesoul Attack went right through him, burning him from the insides first, and then came out of his back. After that, Metal Sonic Version 3.0 burst into flame and exploded.
Nega Robotnik: NOOOOO! METAL SONIC VERSION 3.0!
Correct me if I'm wrong, but did he just use one of my abilities?
Bomb: Yeah, he did. Robotnik installed a copy chip within Metal Sonic's programming, which allows him to copy special techniques.
Blaze: I see.
Nega Robotnik: GRRRR… You'll regret this! *Gets ready to run off*
Silver: Not so fast! *Uses telekinesis to hold him*
Nega Robotnik: Silver, you little…!
Silver: Quick, you guys! Now's your chance to take both the camera AND the cards that he has!
Vector: Yeah, 'n' let's jump 'em while we're at it!
Splash: But…is it really necessary to attack him when he can't defend himself?
Blaze: If he just simply hands them over, then it won't have to come to that!
Nega Robotnik: GRRR… Fine! You can have them!
Silver: *Releases him*
Nega Robotnik: *Sits the camera, Robotnik's card, and the Master and Sol Emerald cards on the floor* Even without the Emeralds, their might should STILL be more than enough to destroy you!
Knuckles: "Their"? What do you mean?
Nega Robotnik: You'll find out shortly! Eee hee hee hee! *Runs off*
Heavy: Ugh, I swear… He has to have THE most irritating voice on the planet! It's quite an accomplishment for someone to sound even worse than Charmy!
Charmy: PBBBBTTTH! *Sticks his tongue at Heavy*
Splash: Why is it that nearly EVERYTHING you say is either rude, sarcastic, or taking jabs at Charmy in some way, shape, or form!?
Heavy: Why is it that nearly everything YOU say just drips with "public service announcement"?
Splash: Well, EXCUSE me for having morals!
Tikal: Please, you two… Can't we all just make peace and get along?
Splash: I wish that were possible.
Tikal: *Picks up the camera*
Scorch: Wait, let me! *Snatches it from her*
After taking the camera from Tikal, Scorch used it to change Dr. Robotnik, the Master Emerald, and the Sol Emeralds to their original forms.
Robotnik: Huh!? What!? What's going on!? The last thing I remember, I was waiting for Scorch to return to the base with Slush, and then I got into quarrel with Nega, and…the rest is a bit blank.
Shadow: Nega used that camera to capture you and have you transformed into a card, Doctor.
Robotnik: Ah, yes, of course! Whichever one of you changed me back to my original state, you have my thanks.
Scorch: I'm glad to be able to return the favor, Dr. Robotnik.
Charmy: Hee hee, "glad to bee able". Get it? *Snickers*
Marine: Those puns of yours are ace, mate!
Heavy: Ugh… I'm surrounded by a trio of morons.
Robotnik: Anyway, though, there's no time to celebrate just yet. I have some rather…unsettling news that I've discovered before getting changed into a card. You're all familiar with the "Solaris Project", aren't you?
Silver: Yes, what about it?
Robotnik: I've recently discovered that Nega intends to resurrect it! He's planning on using its powers to destroy this world!
Knuckles: W-WHAT!? So, THAT'S what he meant by "their might"!
Shadow: Yes, that's the one.
Robotnik: I'll see what I can do about reconstructing the Scepter of Darkness, just in case Mephiles survives after his defeat.
Blaze: What about Iblis? Will you be able to create a device that could contain him, so that a living vessel doesn't have to be used this time?
Robotnik: There's no need, because there's already one such item that exists. *Looks towards Scorch* And by that, I mean the Fire Element Gem, of course!
Scorch: You don't say…
Omega: Affirmative. Let's begin our pursuit of Nega immediately, as to prevent those two from being revived!
Knuckles: Right. Let's go!
*They run off*
Wasting no more time, all the heroes rushed through the automatic door to chase Dr. Nega down once again. Will they be able to stop the resurrection of Iblis and Mephiles before it's too late? If not, will they be able to put a stop to Mephiles' plans to destroy the world a third time? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power!
