After a fierce battle on the Death Egg Mk.III, Dr. Eggman tries to find out how his machines always fail. He calls two of his best creations, Heavy and Bomb, to help him. Heavy modifies Eggman's newest machines to have better fighting and speed abilites, while Bomb works on upgraded Badniks. Eggman, Heavy, and Bomb finish off with the Egg Ultra-attacker ZX, an invention so powerful it can destroy Sonic! Aftrer they complete that, they make 4 new Sonic robots. They are Steel Sonic, Iron Sonic, Death Sonic, and Destroyer Sonic. Eggman sends the 4 robots out to find all the Chaos Emeralds, along with Mecha Sonic and Sliver Sonic. Meanwhile in Grassy Grove Zone, Sonic is relaxing under a tree when Steel Sonic comes in to attack him. Steel Sonic gets away before Sonic can finish him off. Sonic rushes into Grassy Grove Zone to find him. The screen then turns to behind Sliver Sonic and Mecha Sonic.
