|Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 1: Legend of the Elemental Gems|
February 25, 2011
On the last chapter of Elements of Power, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the rest of the heroes used the seven Sol Emeralds that Solaris left behind, to power up and transform into their super forms. After that, all of them, including the Elemental Goddesses, followed Solaris in space to challenge him to yet another epic showdown to determine the fate of the universe. They all fought a close, fierce battle, but unfortunately for the heroes, Solaris managed to land a counter attack, effectively removing a majority of their rings, almost causing their super forms to wear off.
However, Scorch, Splash, and Slush soon combined their powers, and dealt an attack that was powerful enough to blow the monster to pieces. Has Solaris truly been defeated? Or has he managed to survive somehow, as predicted by Knuckles and Blaze? If so, will Heavy and Bomb, and the rest of their friends be able to deliver the rings to them on time, before their super forms wear off? Find out in this exciting, second-to-last chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 1: Legend of the Elemental Gems!
Heavy: *Czzzzt!* *Through the communicator* Testing, one, two, three. This is Heavy. Can you all hear me?
Super Vector: Yep, we hear ya, loud 'n' clear. You got 'da rings for us?
Heavy: Yes. Bomb and I are transporting them to you now, as we speak.
*A warphole appears, and several rings come from it*
Super Knuckles: Alright!
*They collect them*
Scorch: Honestly, I don't know why they even bothered. Solaris is clearly is dead. Like I said before, there's no possible WAY that someone could have survived THAT attack! Just look at him; he's blown to pieces, and everything! Then again, that's to be expected, considering the fact that MY power is what caused it!
Slush: How arrogant can you possibly get?
Suddenly, Solaris' pieces began move, and started going in a circular motion.
Super Tails: Uh oh! Don't look now, but I think Solaris is putting himself back together!
Super Vector: WHAT!? Ya've gotta be freakin' kiddin' me!
Burning Blaze: It's just as we suspected. Solaris can regenerate, after all. It looks like this battle is only just beginning…
Super Knuckles: That's fine with me, because I'm just getting warmed up!
Scorch: Hey, that's my line!
Solaris: *Finishes forming back together*
Super Shadow: Alright. Let's pick up where we left off!
Solaris: *Starts to glow*
Slush: Huh? What's he doing now?
Super Vector: I think he's 'bout to transform! Brace ya selves, everyone!
As Solaris was glowing, he began to transform, just as Vector said he would. After the transformation was finished, another bright light flashed, which once again burned the eyes of the heroes.
Super Knuckles: AUGH! Not again!
Solaris (Phase II): I am...matter I am...anti-matter I can see...your past I can see...your future I consume time... And I will consume YOU!
Just as he was finished with his "I will consume you" speech, Solaris fired a massive beam of energy, knocking everyone backwards.
Solaris (Phase II): HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! F…Fools! I…told you! You cannot…hope to stop ME with your…limited power! I am S… Solaris…the… God of…Time! The Ulti…mate Arbiter of Life and…Death in the…Universe!
Super Vector: Yeah, yeah, wudevah! Heard it all before! No mattah how powaful ya think ya are, you're still goin' down, just like last time!
Super Charmy: Yeah!
Super Knuckles: Why don't we try attacking him with a different Team Blast this time?
Super Tails: You mean the same one that we used on Metal Overlord?
Super Metal Sonic: …
Super Knuckles: Yeah, that one.
Super Sonic: Alright, then let's do it!
With that said, all of them, including the Elemental Goddesses, flew towards Solaris at high speed. As they moved closer to him, Solaris fired various lasers and projectiles at them, which they managed to dodge. When they got close enough to his core (which was still showing), they all used the Team Blast technique, attacking it continuously.
Solaris (Phase II): *Insert loud growling here*
Super Charmy: Alright! It's working, it's working!
Super Mighty: Yeah, that's for sure! Once again, Solaris, you're going down!
Super Silver: That's right! Prepare to meet your doom!
Solaris (Phase II): HAHAHAHAHA!THEBADDLEISONLYJUSDBEGUNNING!
Super Vector: Uhhh, WHAT!?
Super Tails: I think he said, "The battle is only just beginning". Or something along the lines of it, at least…
Super Metal Sonic: As I said before, I've heard enough of his ridiculous babble, and I'm going to put an end to it!
Super Sonic: "Ridiculous babble"? Not that I'm defending him or anything, but you're one to talk after all that "I am the real Sonic" crap.
Super Metal Sonic: You CANNOT be serious! You know perfectly well that I am the REAL Sonic! You're nothing but a mere copy!
Super Espio: …You know, at this point, I don't think you should even bother trying to convince him. He's, as Tiara would put it, beyond delusional. -__-;;
Super Charmy: Dun, dun, dun! It's time for another episode of… "Delusional Thinking With Metal Sonic"!
Get it, "beeyond delusional"? *Snickers*
Splash: *Giggles* Oh, I could just never get enough of those!
Burning Blaze: Can we can the chatter for a moment, and get back to the fight?
Super Shadow: You took the words right out of my mouth.
Super Knuckles: Sounds good to me.
Amy: *Through the communicator* Hello, everyone! It's me, Amy! I just want to let you know that we've collected some more rings for you, and we're sending them up to you now!
*More rings get transported up there, and they get collected*
Super Vector: Ah, yeah! Now we're talkin'!
Amy: Also, just like before, I, and everyone else, would like to wish you the best of luck!
Tikal: Yes. It's up to you to defeat Solaris, and bring peace back to this world once again! We believe in you all… Yes, even you, Scorch.
Tiara: Yeah, good luck, everyone! Oh, and Sonic, I'm really looking forward to going on that romantic stroll with you on the beach.
Super Sonic: Oh, boy…
Amy: Hey! Back off, Boobowski! I said I was going on that stroll with him!
Tiara: No, I am!
Amy: Sonic is mine!
Tiara: No, he's MINE!
*They argue back and forth again*
Super Sonic: So, umm…yeah! What Blaze said! Let's get back to the fight!
Super Mighty: Hold on a second… What's he doing?
Suddenly, Solaris began to spawn a plethora of bat-like creatures, which were fire and darkness-themed. After they were spawned, they started charging towards the heroes.
Super Vector: INCOMIN'!
Super Charmy: Whoa! There sure is a whole lot of 'em!
Super Knuckles: Yeah, but we could still take them!
Super Shadow: Precisely. As I always say, there's no strength in numbers!
As soon as the creatures started stampeding towards them, the heroes began to fight them off. As always, no matter how many of them they defeated, Solaris continued to spawn more and more creatures. This went on for quite some time, until Splash decided to use her Tsunami Attack to destroy all the fire-themed bats, while Slush used her Blizzard Attack to freeze all of the darkness-themed bats. While they were frozen, everyone else took the opportunity to break them into pieces.
Super Charmy: Alright! I think that's the last of 'em!
Burning Blaze: Yes, now we could turn our attention back to Solaris!
Solaris (Phase II): *Stars charging* HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! D…Dodge THIS one…if you can, fools! Even…if you do, the entire…PLANET will go up in smoke! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Yes…you…heard right! Even …if you manage…to avoid…this attack, everyone on Earth…will receive a…one-way ticket…to OBLIVION!
Solaris (Phase II): HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *Continues charging*
Super Vector: AH, CRUD! THIS AIN'T GOOD, YOU GUYS!
Splash: Yeah! We've got to find a way to stop it somehow, otherwise, the Earth is doomed!
Solaris (Phase II): HAHAHAHAHAHA…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! *Continues charging*
Super Knuckles: I guess the only way to stop it, is to block it, just as we did a year ago!
Burning Blaze: Sol Emeralds, please… Lend us more of your power! Give us the strength we need…to counterattack this!
Solaris (Phase II): HAHAHAHAHA…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! JUST DIE, SHADOWKNUCKLESBLAZEANDALLOFYOU! JUST DIIIIIIIIEEEE!!! *Fires*
Just as Solaris was firing his laser, the seven Sol Emeralds quickly answered Blaze's plea, and began to surround everyone. Right before the beam could hit the heroes, the Sol Emeralds abruptly generated an energy barrier around them. Shortly afterwards, they all engaged in another beam struggle, just as they did when they fought Solaris a year ago.
Solaris (Phase II): HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! YOUCANNOTESCAPEYOURDEMISE! You're… YOU'RE FINISHED!
Super Charmy: Ihhhh…! He's…too…strong…!
Super Vector: Yeah, but we gotta keep tryin'! If we don't, then we're screwed! 'N' so is everybody else!
*They keep pushing against Solaris' beam*
While their beam struggle was going on, Heavy, Bomb, Amy, Tiara, Tikal, and all the others sent more of the rings that they collected in order to help Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the rest of the heroes maintain their super forms, and to give them the power that they need to overpower Solaris.
Rouge: *Through the communicator* You're doing great, everyone. Keep up the good work!
Cream: Yes, you can do it, everyone!
Big: Uhhh, by the way… Is Froggy up there with you?
Their beam struggle with Solaris went on for quite some time, but despite their power increase from the Sol Emeralds, they couldn't quite find the power that they needed to overpower Solaris' beam, and attack his core. However, something, or someone, suddenly attacked Solaris out of nowhere, catching him off guard in the process.
Solaris (Phase II): *Growls in pain*
Super Charmy: Huh? I wonder what THAT was?
???: Hey, you guys. It looks like you could use some help.
Just then, they all looked in the direction where the voice came from, and to their surprise (and delight), it was none other than…
Everyone (except the E.G.s and Metal Sonic): WECHNIA!?
Wechnia: Long time no see, everyone.
Super Knuckles: Wechnia! Y-You're alive!? I can't believe it!
Super Espio: N-Neither can I!
Super Mighty: Yeah! I mean, all this time, we thought you were dead!
Super Charmy: We really, REALLY missed you! How did you come back to life?
Wechnia: I'll explain later. For now, let's concentrate our energy in taking Solaris down again!
Super Vector: Sure thing! Hey, Shadow, can't 'cha use Chaos Control, or somethin', ta slow time a bit? That outta make things much easier!
Super Shadow: Of course. Chaos… CONTROL!
After using Chaos Control to slow time for a few seconds, the heroes started to gain the upper hand again. Although it was only for a few seconds, it still ended up making a huge difference. They began overpowering Solaris' attack, and were on the verge of getting closer and closer to his glowing orange core.
Solaris (Phase II): HAHAHAHA! IT IS USELESS, IT IS USELESS! YOU KNOW IT IS, SHADOW! YOUCAN'TDEFEATMESOEASILY!
Super Shadow: That's where you're wrong! It's time to unleash the ultimate power!
Super Knuckles: That's right! Prepare for another defeat!
Super Silver: The nightmare is over, Solaris! DIE!
Eventually, they all overpowered Solaris' beam and won the beam struggle. When they got close enough to the core, the seven Sol Emeralds surrounded them all as they used the Team Blast attack once again, constantly attacking Solaris' core, and draining his lifeforce.
Solaris (Phase II): *Growls in pain* IM…IMPOSSIBLE! I…AM SOLARIS… THE GOD OF TIME! I AM…. THEULTIMATEUNRIVALEDPOWERINTHEUNIVERSE!!! AUUUUUUUGGGHHHH!
*A huge explosion occurs*
Super Charmy: ALRIGHT, WE DID IT!
After a long, hard battle, the heroes have managed to triumph over Solaris once again…or have they? Additionally, there's one other question that still remains on their minds: How did Wechnia, who was presumed dead a year prior to these events, manage to come back to life without the aid of the Master Emerald? All of these questions will be answered next time, on the final chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 1: Legend of the Elemental Gems!
