|Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction|
October 30, 2011
Previously, on Elements of Power, Tiara Boobowski faced off against Nack the Weasel/Fang the Sniper, who broke into her father's laboratory to steal the three Elemental Chaos Rings that were brought over there after overhearing Dr. Robotnik talk about their current location. At the very start of the battle, it seemed as if Tiara was going to come out the victor, but the crafty weasel managed to make a comeback after playing a trick on her, which caused her to let her guard down. Seeing the opportunity, Nack stabbed Tiara in the leg with his knife, and proceeded to give her a brutal beating, demanding to know where the three Elemental Chaos Rings were hidden.
Tiara, of course, refused to tell him, which ended up making things even worse for her. As soon as he was about to deliver the final blow to her, Professor Boobowski and Professor Porkenstein decided to show up to lend her a hand. Not wanting to risk his daughter's life, Professor Boobowski had no choice but to hand the Chaos Rings over to Nack, but before he had the chance to claim them, several police copters arrived on the scene (since Prof. Boobowski and Porkenstein phoned them prior to the battle). Afterwards, Nack, in his stolen Egg –O- Matic Hovercraft, decided to flee the scene.
Elsewhere, at Tails' Workshop, the two robo-mechanics, Heavy and Bomb, as well as the newly-awakened Gamma were in the middle of a battle with Bean the Dynamite, who came to steal the other four Elemental Chaos Rings. Their battle lasted for some time, but eventually, the three machines managed to triumph in the end. Shortly afterwards, police choppers arrived in that area, as well, since Orbot and Cubot phoned them after awakening Gamma.
Just as they and the rest of the heroes (who've regained consciousness) arrived on the scene, Bean (just like Nack) fled the scene in his stolen Egg –O- Matic, as well. Just when they thought it was safe to reclaim the Elemental Chaos Rings, Mecha Amy took them and Chaos Controlled her way out of the area before they had a chance to "take them back by force" as Silver the Hedgehog suggested. Additionally, Metal Sonic 3.0 also went to reclaim the three Chaos Rings at Prof. Boobowski's lab.
Now that the heroes have recovered from the effects of Bean's knockout gas, they've decided to start heading to Dr. Robotnik's base. Will they be able to infiltrate the base, reclaim the Elemental Chaos Rings, and stop EG-005 from being brought to life? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!
Porkenstein: Oh, it's you guys! Thank goodness I've found you!
Tails: Hi, Professor Porkenstein. What are you doing here?
Porkenstein: Well, I have some good news and some bad news.
Tails: I see. We happen to have some bad news of our own, but you could go first if you want.
Porkenstein: Alright. I'll start with the good news. Professor Boobowski and I-
Charmy: *Snickers at the mention of that last name*
Marine: *Does the same*
Marine: Sorry, mate, we couldn't resist! What were you sayin'?
Porkenstein: Yes, as I was saying, the good news is that we've managed to complete the Elemental Power Extractor. The bad news is that we had a run-in with Fang the Sniper shortly afterwards, and-
Vector: Lemme guess… He took the Elemental Chaos Rings from ya, right?
Porkenstein: Well, not exactly.
Heavy: Then what happened? Get to the point, already. We're in a hurry.
Splash: Wow. Could you possibly get anymore disrespectful?
Heavy: Oh, I'm sorry. Was I talking to you?
Bomb: You'll have to excuse him, Professor. Heavy could really be quite an anus sometimes.
Splash: "Sometimes"? ALL the time is more like it. Anyway, please do continue, Professor.
Porkenstein: As rude as he might have been, he still brings up a valid point. I'd hate to be responsible for delaying you, so I'll just run alongside you all as I tell you the news.
Knuckles: Okay, that'll work.
*They move on*
Tails: Now, what were you saying?
Porkenstein: As I was saying before, Fang showed up to steal the Chaos Rings that Gazebo and I were going to use to test the E.P.E., and then he and Tiara got into a fight over them. At the start of the battle, Tiara was doing pretty well, but eventually, the battle shifted in Fang's favor, and things began to take a turn for the worse. Tiara…she was determined to protect the Chaos Rings, and it nearly cost the poor girl her life, as she was given a merciless beating and left in critical condition, so she had to be hospitalized.
Sonic: Ooh, why that BASTARD!
Cream: That's…that's terrible!
Tikal: How awful! That was a terrible thing that he did!
Splash: How could he do something like this!?
*The others say something similar*
Blaze: Ugh! I've always disliked him ever since the [[Image:RobotnikStrikesBackPart70l.PNG|moment] he suggested leaving Silver behind at Robotnik's exploding space station, but I never thought that even HE would go that far!
Amy: Me neither! I feel so bad for her…
Big: Uhhh… Me, too, but I thought you hated her?
Cream: I was going to say the same thing.
Amy: Don't get me wrong, I still do. We may have had our differences, and she may have been a man-stealing hussy, but even SHE didn't deserve this! Wherever Nack is, I hope he gets what's coming to him!
Sonic: I'm definitely gonna make sure of that next time I see him! *Clenches his fist in anger* He's gone too far! I WON'T let him get away with this, no matter what!
Porkenstein: I'm glad to hear it. Say, by the way… Sonic, is it? I'm curious… Would you happen to be Tiara's boyfriend, by any chance?
Sonic: Huh!? Where's this coming from!?
Porkenstein: Well, I sort of gathered that by how serious your reaction was compared to the others. Plus, Tiara always spoke so fondly of you.
Sonic: Uh, well…
Amy: No way! Of course he isn't! Everyone knows that Sonic and I are meant to be!
Porkenstein: Alright, if you say so. Anyway, you guys also had some bad news?
Mighty: Yeah. The Chaos Rings that we had…they ended up getting taken away by one of Robotnik's robots.
Porkenstein: Seriously!? Oh, blast it all! I guess we'd better press onward, then!
(Hmm, the professor definitely has a point. I wonder… Judging from Sonic's reaction, could it be…that he's…in love with Boobowski!? Sure, everyone else, including me, was angry about it, too, but still… Somehow, he seemed a lot angrier about it than everyone else. N-No… It can't be!)
Ray: Um, Amy?
Amy: *Didn't hear him, since she's still deep in thought*
Amy: (I'M Sonic's girlfriend! I'M his one and only true love, not Boobowski!)
Amy: *Still didn't hear him* (Well, she can't have him! I won't let her! Sonic is mine! Do you hear me!? MINE!)
Ray: AMY! *Shakes her*
Amy: *Snaps at him* WHAT!?
Ray: Ieeee! *Jumps back*
Gamma: Is something troubling you?
Amy: Huh? Oh, no, I'm okay. Sorry about that. There's something you wanted to tell me, Ray?
Ray: Um, yeah. Everyone else went on ahead. *Points*
Amy: Ooh, I HATE it when they leave me behind! *Runs ahead*
*Ray and Gamma do the same*
Meanwhile, at Robotnik's Sand Ocean base…
Mecha Amy: Here they are, Doctor. *Holds them out* All four of the Elemental Chaos Rings from that "Workshop" place.
Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Excellent job, Mecha Amy! Now, all we need is for Three-Point Zero to arrive with the last three, and we'll be all set!
Robotnik: Ah, you're right on time, ladies…and Egg-Robo.
Egg-Robo: On time for what?
Robotnik: Metal Sonic 3.0 is going to be here at any moment now with the last three Elemental Chaos Rings, and then I'll finally be able to use them to bring EG-005 to life!
Scorch: Ah, that's great! It's nice to see that things are finally looking up for you, Doctor.
Storm: Wait, so you're not mad us, then?
Shock: Yeah, I thought for sure that you would have chewed us out big-time for coming back empty-handed.
Robotnik: I have no reason to. You gave it your all, and I already happen to have them in my possession at the moment. It's the end result that counts.
Egg-Robo: *Whispers to the Goddesses* He must be in a good mood.
*They nod in agreement*
Robotnik: Now, we just need to play the waiting game until Metal Sonic 3.0 arrives…
*He teleports in via Chaos Control*
Scorch: Well, that was convenient.
Metal Sonic 3.0: Here they are. *Holds out the three Elemental Chaos Rings* I would have been back sooner, but I was having somewhat of a difficult time finding Professor Boobowski's laboratory. Strangely enough, though, when I arrived, no one was around, and the Elemental Chaos Rings were left entirely unguarded.
Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Excellent work, Metal Sonic 3.0! Finally, we now have all seven Elemental Chaos Rings in our possession! Now, it's time for the moment of the truth; and that "moment", of course, is EG-005's awakening!
Shock: Alright! While we're on the subject, don't you think it's about time we've come up with a name for her?
Robotnik: Hmm, maybe you're right. I haven't quite thought of one yet, but what I do know, is that her name has to start with an "S", just like all of yours and the rest of the Goddesses.
Scorch: A name that starts with an "S", hmm? Would "Silver" be okay? After all, that does happen to be her color scheme.
Metal Sonic 3.0: I don't think "Silver" would suffice, since that name already happens to be taken.
Robotnik: Three-Point Zero is right, Scorch. It would definitely be wise to call her something else, in order to avoid confusion with this "other" Silver, whoever that is.
Metal Sonic 3.0: He's that white hedgehog with telekinetic powers. You know, the one who's always accompanying Blaze?
Robotnik: Oh, you mean HIM? That idiot who kept accusing me of being Dr. Nega? Up until now, I had no idea what his name was, but at the same time, I really didn't care. Calling EG-005 "Silver" is definitely out of the question, indeed.
Storm: Well, would it be okay to use a variation of it, then?
Robotnik: A variation, you say? What kind?
Storm: Let's see… How can I put this? You know how Seedra's name came from the word "Seed", right? Well, what if we were to simply modify the word "Silver" into something else? Something like "Silvra", for example.
Robotnik: "Silvra", huh? Yes, I think that'll do just nicely! Now, about her title... What should it be, exactly?
Egg-Robo: Well, if she has power over every element, why don't we call her "the Goddess of All Elements"?
Robotnik: Yes, that's it! That's what we'll call her from now on! From this day forth, EG-005 shall be known as "Silvra, the Goddess of All Elements"! Are there any objections to this?
Scorch: No complaints over here, Dr. Robotnik.
*Everyone else says something similar*
Robotnik: Alright, now that we've got the name out of the way, it's time to unleash her! Egg Pawns, bring the capsule in here!
Egg Pawns: Aye aye, sir! *They rush out of the room*
*The heroes enter Robotnik's Mystic Ruins base*
Tails: By the way, Professor Porkenstein, things are going to get a lot more dangerous from here on out. Are you sure you want to stick around?
Porkenstein: If you're worried that I may be a burden on you all, then you needn't worry, dear boy. I've come prepared. *Reaches into his lab coat, takes out a few parts, and assembles them into what appears to be a bazooka*
Charmy: Wow, cool! Is that a bazooka!?
Porkenstein: Well, yes, but rather than missiles, however, it fires laser projectiles. In other words, I guess you could call it a "Laser Bazooka".
Marine: Strewth! Now that's bonza!
Espio: Yes, that's quite impressive. Just out of curiosity, what kept you from using that on Nack, if you had it the entire time?
Porkenstein: I would have used it on him, but I didn't for two reasons. Number one, the force this weapon generates is so powerful that it would have destroyed Tiara along with Fang, since she happened to be near him. Number two, there's a chance that he would have dodged it, and decided to kill her right then and there, and I didn't want to risk either of those happening.
Heavy: I suppose that will do. After all, if a measly hammer like Amy's could do a significant amount of damage to Robotnik's robots, I'm sure that could, too.
Amy: You wanna repeat that!? *Raises her hammer*
Heavy: Go right ahead. I dare you.
Amy: *Gets ready to hit him*
*Ray, Cream, and Big start holding her back*
Amy: Hey! Let go of me! *Jerks away*
Heavy: Pffft. Please don't waste my time. You aren't worth it.
Amy: GRRR, YOU ARE SUCH A PRICK!
Marine: I agree, but blimey! What's gotten into her all of a sudden?
Vector: I ain't gotta clue. This is outta the ordinary, even for her!
Sonic: That's for sure!
Cream: Amy, please calm down…
Big: Stop already!
Ray: Yeah, we're supposed to be stopping Robotnik, remember?
Amy: Maybe, but he could wait!
Blaze: No, he cannot! If we just stand by and allow him to awaken this "EG-005" creature, then this world will be destroyed!
Amy: … *Sighs* Fine.
Porkenstein: If this sudden outburst of rage had anything to do with the assumption I made earlier about Sonic and Tiara being an item, then I sincerely apologize.
Splash: You, too, Heavy. You're also to blame for making that insulting comment.
Heavy: Fine, whatever. I'm sorry. Can we move on now?
With that said, the group of heroes finally began to proceed through the base. That is, until they were interrupted by one of Robotnik's satellite monitors, which suddenly flew in front of them.
Porkenstein: What the blazes?
*Robotnik appears on the monitor*
Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA! Well, well! What have we here?
Sonic: It's Ro-butt-nik!
Robotnik: So, you've finally decided to show up, eh, you spiny blue pest? In any case, all of you are far too late!
Knuckles: What do you mean!?
Robotnik: I mean that I have all seven Elemental Chaos Rings in my possession, of course! In addition to the ones that Mecha Amy took from you, Metal Sonic 3.0 retrieved the ones that Tiara brought to her father's laboratory, and delivered them to me!
Porkenstein: He what!? Oh, double blast it all!
Slush: Ooh, I cannot STAND that guy!
Robotnik: Ah, it's you, Slush! I didn't even notice you at first! Now that you're here, I would just like to take the opportunity to thank you for your valiant contribution to EG-005's awakening!
Sonic: Huh? What's he talking about?
Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA… I'm saying that she donated the blood sample that I needed in order to begin the experiment!
*People stare at Slush*
Slush: Oh, cut the crap! I didn't "donate" ANYTHING! You stabbed me with that injector needle after having Three-Point Zero hold me down with telekinesis! It was entirely against my will!
Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Maybe so, but you brought that on yourself, traitor!
Knuckles: I don't understand why YOU, of all people, would even have the gall to call someone else a "traitor" after what you did to Orbot and Cubot last month!
*The others agree, too*
Robotnik: Enough! I grow bored of this conversation! Why don't I let you in on a little secret? Neither I, nor EG-005, are anywhere to be found there in the Mystic Ruins base! I'll let you know where we are if you could defeat my army of Badniks.
Vector: Bring 'em on!
Wechnia: This should be a piece of cake.
Robotnik: Hmph, if THAT'S what you think then let the games begin!
*Robotnik sends in a bunch of Buzz Bombers, Egg Pawns, and others Badniks, and everyone begins fighting them off*
Elsewhere, at the Sand Ocean base…
Scorch: Dr. Robotnik?
Robotnik: Yes, what is it?
Scorch: Tell me honestly… What happened between you and Slush?
Robotnik: Well, you see… Do you remember how I kept saying that there was a spy around the base, and that was most likely how the Chaotix kept finding out about my plans before I even had the chance to act?
Scorch: Wait, do you mean to tell me that SHE was the one behind that all along!?
Robotnik: That's right. She's been conspiring against me from the very beginning, ever since we first met!
(Hmm, come to think of it, I DO remember her telling me something like that last month, when Dr. Nega had her trapped in that room, but I ended up forgetting all about it…)
Robotnik: To make a long story short, I caught her snooping around the production room last week. She was either getting ready to destroy EG-005's blueprints, or she was going to leak information about it to those Chaotix fools. So, to prevent the latter from happening, I had no choice but to use Dr. Nega's camera to trap her within another dimension.
Scorch: So, THAT'S how she winded up another dimension…
Shock: I have to say, Doc… That was pretty low.
Storm: Either way… Since she was trapped in there for an entire week, don't you think there's a chance that could have ended up starving to death?
Robotnik: Not to worry, though! Not to worry! For the past week, I've been transporting food over there on a regular basis. So, basically, she's still alive and well, as you've just witnessed. As I was saying earlier, it's the end result that counts, remember?
Scorch: …I guess you have a point, Doctor.
At the Mystic Ruins base again…
Silver: *Has the last few Badniks caught in a telekinetic grip* This'll end it! *Tosses them into a wall and breaks them to pieces*
Blaze: Nice one, Silver.
Robotnik: *On the monitor* WHAT!? No way! I can't believe this!
Sonic: Okay, Ro-butt-nik. We've already trashed your toys; now tell us where you are!
Robotnik: Very well then. *Moves from the screen and shows them the view* Does this place look familiar to you, by any chance?
Vector: It ain't ringin' a bell with me.
Charmy: Me, either.
Robotnik: That's correct!
Sonic: I thought so. There's no way I could forget a place like that, especially since I had to fight against that huge rock statue.
Knuckles: It's the same case with me, but the only difference is that I had to fight a ghost.
Robotnik: Well, now that you're aware of my location, come if you dare! HAHAHAHAHA…
Slush: Gladly! Hear my words, Robotnik, and you, too, Three-Point Zero! I'm going to find you, and I'm going to destroy you!
Metal Sonic 3.0: Oh, how I quiver with fear.
*Robotnik breaks contact with them, and the satellite monitor flies away*
Ray: Oh, great! If he's all the way over there, how are we going to get there in time to stop him from unleashing EG-005!?
Slush: Don't worry, there's a way. According to Robotnik, he's installed teleportation devices in each of his bases, which all lead to another. Follow me; I'll get us there in no time! *Runs off*
Wasting no time, the heroes began to follow Slush's lead in order to get to the teleportation device that leads to Robotnik's Sand Ocean base. Meanwhile…
*The Egg Pawns bring EG-005's capsule into the room*
Robotnik: Well, it's about time! It took you long enough, but whatever. Let's begin, shall we? *Opens Silvra's capsule* Alright, everyone! It's time for the moment of truth! Let's all use the Elemental Chaos Rings, and focus our thoughts on transferring their powers over to Silvra!
Heeding Robotnik's words, the group decided to release the seven Elemental Chaos Rings into the air. Shortly afterwards, they began to glow and encircle EG-005/Silvra's body, and the elemental powers from the Chaos Rings ended up getting transferred into the once-colorless gem, causing it to be multi-colored again. When that was finished, Silvra abruptly sat up and opened her eyes. Being part hedgehog and part machine, Silvra's eyes were black, and she had glowing red pupils, much like the Metal Sonics and Mecha Amy.
Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! The project…it was a complete success after all! Finally, at long last, she's been awakened!
Silvra: *Looks at her hands, and then towards Robotnik and company*
Robotnik: Welcome to life, my dear! I am your brilliant master and creator, Doctor Ivo Robotnik, but you can just call me "Dr. Robotnik". You, my friend, are the fifth and last of my EG Experiments! You are Silvra, the Goddess of All Elements! Codenamed: EG-005!
Silvra: S…Silvra? "Eee-Jee-Double-Oh-Five"? I suppose I can live with that. So, who are the rest of them, if you don't mind my asking?
Robotnik: They're my associates. *Points to the Goddesses* They're your older sisters, Scorch, Shock, and Storm. The latter two are the third and fourth of the EG Experiments I've created. *Points to the robots* The machines you see over here are Egg-Robo, Mecha Amy, and Metal Sonic Version 3.0, but you could just call him "Three-Point Zero" for short, and to avoid confusion with the original.
Scorch: Hey. It's nice to meet you, little sis.
Shock: Yeah, what she said.
Mecha Amy: *Politely bows*
Metal Sonic 3.0: …
Silvra: Likewise, everyone.
Robotnik: Now that we've all been acquainted, let's get down to business, shall we? *Displays the heroes on the monitor again*
Silvra: *Faces the screen*
Robotnik: Yes, take a good look at them, Silvra. The people you see here… Each and every one of them are our enemies! Time after time, they've gotten in my way and foiled each and every one of my plans! There aren't enough words to describe how much I utterly despise them! I want each and every one of them eliminated! Can you do that for me?
Silvra: Yes, Doctor. It will be my pleasure. I highly doubt any of them will be able to put up a decent fight against me. After all, it's just as you said, I'm a Goddess of All Elements! No mere mortal can equal ME in power! I could already tell that this battle will be over before it even begins! *Leaves the room*
Egg-Robo: Wow, SOMEONE certainly thinks quite highly of herself…
Storm: Yeah, that's for sure.
Robotnik: Maybe so, but I'd say she has every reason to. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA… Very soon, each and every one of those fools will be dealt with swiftly and severely! With those fools out of the way, I'll finally be free to realize my ambitions of conquering this world and building the Robotnik Empire! At last, we'll finally witness the end of Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles "Tails" Prower, Knuckles the Echidna, and each and every one of those meddlesome pests who've dared to oppose me over the years! I'll finally be able to mark myself a place in history as the ULTIMATE genius! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
Metal Sonic 3.0: …
Mecha Amy: …
Oh, no! The unthinkable has finally happened! Despite the heroes' efforts to collect all of the Elemental Chaos Rings, as well as reclaiming them after they were stolen, Robotnik has still managed to complete and unleash EG-005! With the powers of all seven of her sisters wrapped up into one, as well as additional power from the Chaos Rings, do Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the rest of the heroes have what it takes to stop Silvra? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!
