Cquote1 Why keep kiddin' ourselves when we know we live in a world where Finitevus and Infinite have so much power even other villains like Eggman and King Shadow are hiding from them? It's time you faced facts, Lucky. We lost.[...]You got a good heart, kid. Don't let it go to your head. Cquote2
Zero arguing with Lucky, Fall of the Worlds

Rise of Ruin is an upcoming story arc set after Return of Darkness. As of yet, three stories are confirmed for it, titled Fall of the Worlds, Resistance Rising, and Menace of Metal. It will be primarily set from Lucky Smith's POV, with it currently being unknown if any other characters will have a POV in the arc(as some stories in Return of Darkness commonly bounced between two or more POVs). It was confirmed by series creator Burpy's Dream that at this point, Lucky and Tundra Smith are teenagers.


Arc Description:

The unthinkable has happened: Finitevus has won. The Storming Alliance, worn out from their battles and Fox's absence-though he has returned-has split apart. Some are hiding in Dark Mobius with help from the native warrior Jones Smith, some are hiding in Light Mobius, others have drifted apart and found their own ways to hide. A small Resistance stands, however. Now led by the orphaned coyote Lucky Smith, they fight to rebuild the fallen warrior Teams and take back their Worlds and their homes.

The Villains


Dr. Finitevus

The Destructix


This will be similar to the Great Rebellion that took place in The Heart of a Warrior and the 2017 game Sonic Forces for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

Most the dogs in the Moor Pack will have some defining aspect of them:

  • Bear has a voice similar to famous American actor John Goodman, who has done work with Disney as James P. Sullivan, "Sully" from the Monsters Inc. movies and Eli "Big Daddy" La Bouff from 2009's animated hit The Princess and the Frog among other roles
  • Jack's breed, accent, and name(being an Irish Setter with an Irish accent) are all references to popular Irish YouTuber jacksepticeye.
  • Samwise has a voice similar to American actor Sam Elliot, who does frequent work in cowboy/Western related media(partly due to his look and deep voice)
  • Trevor's habit of pointing is a reference to his breed's real life use as hunting dogs who point to help direct their human partners
  • Terrance's huge frame and largely silent personality aside from the occasional growl or bark is intended as a reference to the character Terrance from 2016's The Angry Birds Movie, in which the huge red bird Terrance(voiced by Sean Penn) is largely silent aside from an occasional, very deep and long, grunt or laugh.
