Legend of the Elemental Gems is the first story in SolarBlaze's episodic fanfic series, Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power. It picked up exactly where his sprite comic series left off, and ended up spawning up to four sequels (one which is in progress and the other in planning stages), plus two Christmas Specials. This story is notable for introducing SolarBlaze's "Elemental Goddess" fancharacters, Scorch, Splash, and Slush.


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!

References to Past Stories

  • This story retains the "bee" puns that were often used throughout the four comic series, including the "To 'bee' continued..." line at the end of each chapter.
    • On a related note, Charmy, during the sixth chapter, told Splash the same "misbeehaving" joke that he told to Mighty and Ray during the events of Knuckles' Chaotix: The Sonic Conspiracy.
      • Additionally, Espio then made mention of their failed attempt to expose Sonic and Mighty as being one in the same, which was the entirety of that story's plot.
  • This story also contains the running gag of Charmy angering someone towards the end of the story, and getting chased around (which was started in The Sonic Conspiracy).
  • In Part 8, Knuckles recalled the incident from Robotnik Strikes Back, where he had Mephiles sealed within the Master Emerald.
  • In Parts 12, 16, 19, and 20, Wechnia's sacrifice during the events of The Last Story was brought up again.

References in Later Stories

  • In Elemental Chaos Part 13, Charmy made mention of the incident where the Chaotix and company attempted to convince Scorch that Robotnik was taking advantage of her, stating that the same thing may occur again with Squash and Mephiles.
  • While Nack and Bean were spying on the Chaotix and company in Elemental Chaos Part 7, Bean brought up the incident where Nack almost blew their cover the first time.
  • During the events of Elemental Chaos Part 18, Robotnik once again attempted to coax Splash into joining him, only for history to repeat itself again.
  • In Parts 6 and 17 of The Goddess of Destruction, the incident where Robotnik attempted to destroy a Chao Garden as a means of obtaining the Water Element Gem was brought up.


  • This is the only Elements of Power episode so far where Honey the Cat does not appear. The same thing applies to Squash, Seedra, Shock, and Storm (even though they were mentioned).
  • Christmas Special #1 aside, this is the only numbered episode that doesn't have an ending that's split into two parts.
    • On a related note, this is also the only story so far, where the nineteenth chapter was not split into five different sections.
  • This story has the distinction of being the only one with any remnants of Scorch and Slush's sibling rivalry.
