This story was started on January 7, 2011, and finished on March 3, 2011. So far, one year has passed since the events of The Last Story, and the world has been at peace ever since. That is, until Dr. Robotnik returned after his defeat in Robotnik Strikes Back, with yet another world domination plan. This time, he's bent on obtaining the three mysterious, powerful Elemental Gems, which each contain a powerful Goddess with control of one of the three basic elements; fire, water, and ice. Will Knuckles and the Chaotix be able to stop him once again? Or is the doctor bound to succeed this time? Find out as you read on!

A direct sequel to Legend of the Elemental Gems, started on March 6, 2011, and ended on August 13, 2011. Taking place a month after the events of the previous episode, Dr. Robotnik, of course, resumes his plans for world domination. This time around, he's created four of his own Elemental Goddesses, whose powers rival that of the original three. Will anyone be capable of stopping them? Or is Robotnik bound to succeed with his plans this time? Find out as the saga continues!
Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction
Main article: The Goddess of Destruction
The third installment of SolarBlaze's Elements of Power fanfic series, started on August 17, 2011, and finished on June 23, 2012. In this episode, Dr. Robotnik (as always) resumes his plans for world domination once again. Before putting them into effect, he has decided to sniff out the spy who has been leaking information behind his back for the past month. That person turned out to be none other than Slush, the Goddess of Ice. Determined to make sure that information about his latest project, "EG-005" (pronounced "Eee-Jee-Double-Oh-Five") doesn't get leaked, Robotnik has decided to capture the Ice Goddess by turning her into a card, using Dr. Nega's camera. A week later, after almost completing EG-005's development, the doctor tried infusing the power of the Chaos Rings with the Multi-Element Gem that he created, but his machine, the Egg Merger, began to go haywire. Before exploding, it managed to fuse the two powers together, resulting in the creation of the "Elemental Chaos Rings". As the machine exploded, it scattered them all throughout Angel Island. Will Knuckles and the Chaotix be able to rescue Slush, and retrieve the Elemental Chaos Rings in time before Robotnik can? Find out as the saga continues!
Episode 4: Dimensional Chaos
Main article: Dimensional Chaos
The fourth episode of SolarBlaze's Elements of Power fanfic series, started on June 28, 2012. Taking place seven months after The Goddess of Destruction and one month after the EoP Christmas Special, a mysterious Scorch look-alike, who claims to be from another dimension, invades Dr. Robotnik's base to steal the blueprints for the EG Experiments (Squash, Seedra, Shock, Storm, and Silvra), as well as the Egg Merger, the machine that was used to create them. Who is this mysterious look-alike? More importantly, who sent her, and for what purpose has she stolen these things? Find out as the saga continues!
Episode 5: Chronological Chaos
Main article: Chronological Chaos
Note: This story and its plot are currently in planning stages. As such, it has not been finalized, and many of it is subject to change.
This story is going to be centered around the past of the Elemental Goddesses (Scorch, Splash, and Slush). Around the time they're celebrating their 9,001st birthday, they're going to reflect back on the incident that led to them getting sealed up thousands of years ago. Not very long afterwards, Splash ends up having a flashback of the conflict that she, the Chaotix, and company had with Mephiles the Dark sometime ago, during the events of Elemental Chaos. While also taking his time travel powers into account, Splash then states that she finds it eerily suspicious how Mephiles seemed to know so much about that incident (despite the fact that it was never mentioned to him before), and comes to the realization that he might have had something to do with it. With that said, she and the others decide to use Tails' invention, the "Tornado Time Twister" to travel back into the past in order to get to the bottom of it.
Christmas Special #1
Main article: Elements of Power Christmas Special 1
This is a sort of "filler saga" that SolarBlaze wrote, which takes place between the third and fourth Elements of Power episodes, consisting of four chapters. It was started on December 9, 2011, and finished a few weeks later on December 31, 2011. So far, six months have passed since the events of The Goddess of Destruction, and it is now the month of December. During this time, Cream the Rabbit and her mother, Vanilla decide have a Christmas gathering, inviting many of their friends in the process (which, of course, includes the Chaotix team). To everyone's surprise, Dr. Robotnik shows up...as a party guest! Even more surprising than that, the doctor claims to have changed, and relinquished his evil ways for good. Is he telling the truth, or is this a clever way of gaining the heroes' trust in order to lure them into a trap? Find out as you read on!
Christmas Special #2
Main article: Elements of Power Christmas Special 2
Taking place one year after the previous Christmas Special, Cream and Vanilla decide to have another Christmas gathering, and invite their friends over. Somewhere along the way, Metal Sonic Version 3.0 makes an unexpected, dramatic appearance. Shortly after his arrival, he immediately begins targeting Vanilla, of all people! Why has Metal Sonic 3.0 come, and for what reason is he after her?
Christmas Special #3
Main article: Elements of Power Christmas Special 3
Once again, the Christmas season has arrived, and another gathering is being hosted at Vanilla's house. Just as the Ringstar Island guardian, Luna the Porchidna was on her to the party, she ends up confronting Doctor Nega along the way, who claims to have given up on his evil ways. Incidentally, Luna was not seen again after this encounter, which ultimately causes her best friend, Oceana and many others to worry. Could the allegedly-reformed Dr. Nega have been behind her disappearance? Or could something else have happened to her?
Christmas Special #4
Main Article: Elements of Power Christmas Special 4
Once again taking place a year after the previous story, another Christmas gathering is being held. Unknown to the heroes, however, someone is lurking under their noses, aiming to steal the Lunar Emeralds, plus the Snow Element Gem. Judging from the words of Julia's impersonator, he or she obviously has some sort of connection to either Dr. Robotnik or Dr. Nega. Who is this mysterious individual? Exactly what are his or her intentions?
- The name of this story was inspired by Kameo: Elements of Power.
- On a related note, this story was originally under the working title of "Knuckles' Chaotix: Elemental Gems of Power".
- The squabbles between Amy Rose and Tiara Boobowski that often take place throughout the story were inspired by the various fights and arguments between Ryoko and Ayeka in the Tenchi series.
- Contrasting any game in the series post Sonic Adventure, the name of "Dr. Robotnik" is used almost exclusively throughout each story, due to SolarBlaze's dislike for the name of "Dr. Eggman".
