Plot

Team Sonic

While running around on his own, Sonic meets Tails and Knuckles in the Tornado 2. They reveal that they have received a letter from Dr. Eggman telling them of an ultimate weapon that will be ready within three days to help the doctor in conquering the world and challenges them to stop him, if they can. Sonic sees this as a party invitation. Tails and Knuckles think this may be a trap, but Sonic tells them that he would not miss this adventure, so the three heroes band together once again to foil Eggman's plans.

The trio enter Whale Island, they defeat Eggman in the Egg Hawk. They then head to Hexaeco Metropolis which is under the control of Eggman. During their journey there, they encounter the Egg Hopper and defeat it with the help of Team Rose. The two teams discuss about their missions, with Team Rose informing the group that a group of Chao were kidnapped by Zero, one of Eggman's robots. After the short conversation, the two teams head to Casino Park in their respective missions, with less than 48 more hours. Then they defeat Eggman's Egg Pinball and enter Winter Isle where they battle the Egg Freezer. They realize the Eggman they were fighting was Metal Sonic in disguise, and without Team Sonic's realization, Metal Sonic copies their abilities. He then informs the group that he has betrayed Dr. Eggman and wants to conquer the world for himself along with the other robots. Now realizing that Eggman isn't scheming, Team Sonic go on to chase Metal Sonic.

The heroes enter Frog Forest and they encounter the Egg Fruit with the help of Team Dark. After defeating the Egg Fruit, the two teams have a brief conversation and Team Sonic informs Team Dark that Metal Sonic has betrayed Eggman and they must pursue him instead. As Team Dark goes to the valley, Team Sonic goess to the haunted castle and then enter a mansion where they defeat the Egg Skeleton. They arrive at a railroad canyon where Eggman's base is ahead, with only less than an hour to spare after leaving the mansion which sped up time. They defeat the Egg Albatross, but learn that Egg Fleet has been launched. With the help of the Chaotix, Team Sonic boards the Egg Fleet and defeat the Egg Emperor piloted by Metal Sonic. With Metal Sonic (temporarily) defeated, the three friends congratulate each other and go on to destroy the ships.

Team Dark

Shadow and Rouge are sent by G.U.N. to infiltrate one of Eggman's bases after hearing that he is in possession of a valuable treasure. To their chagrin, it turns out to be a trap, and they are confronted by an army of robots. While the two eliminate some of the robots, they also encounter another one named E-123 Omega who is destroying all of the robots and clashes with Shadow. The two fight briefly until Rouge learns that Omega is seeking revenge against Eggman for abandoning him in the room. Rouge breaks up the fight and offers Omega to join her and Shadow to find Eggman together. Omega agrees, though Shadow isn't enthusiastic.

After arriving to Whale Island, Rouge informs Com. Tower that Omega will be joining them in their quest to stop Eggman's plans. Despite Com. Tower's suspicions, he allows Omega to join them. After clearing two levels, they beat Eggman in the Egg Hawk. The team enters Hexaeco Metropolis and defeat the Egg Hopper with the help of Team Chaotix. After having a discussion about their missions, the teams enter the Stone Gardens and beat Eggman's Egg Statue. They arrive at Winter Isle and are confronted by a Shadow Android created by Eggman. After defeating the Shadow Android, the trio leave Winter Isle, not realizing that Eggman was Metal Sonic in disguise and had copied their data from a distance.

Next, Team Dark go to Frog Forest, and are assisted by Team Sonic in battling the Egg Fruit. After Team Sonic informs them that Metal Sonic betrayed Eggman and is taking charge, Team Dark sets off to Skull Valley where some Shadow Androids are present. They defeat the Egg Scorpion and set off to Eggman's base located at a canyon. After defeating the Egg Albatross, they enter the base to discover that the "secret treasure" was a factory of Shadow Androids, much to Rouge's disappointment. Omega destroys the factory. They later defeat the Egg Albatross piloted by the Shadow Android. They then realize the Egg Fleet is lifting off. Team Dark, along with Team Rose set on board the Fleet. The team find themselves on the battle ships in the Egg Fleet. They beat an army of Shadow Androids and then defeat the same Shadow Android from Winter Isle. The team congratulate each other, especially Shadow and Omega who have grown to respect one another, and the three continue to find more Shadow Androids to destroy.

Team Rose

While near Emerald Beach with Cream and Big, Amy is wondering what Sonic is doing while laying on a bench. The wind blows a newspaper across Amy's face. She reads it and learns that a group of Chao have been kidnapped from the Chao Garden in Emerald Town by one of Eggman's robots. Looking closely at the newspaper, Amy recognizes the robot as Zero, who has been upgraded. Amy, Cream, and Big set off on a mission to rescue the Chao stolen by Zero.

After making their way across Whale Island, they beat the Egg Hawk piloted by an Egg Pawn. They set off to HEXAeco Metropolis to battle the Egg Hopper with the assistance of Team Sonic. After a small conversation about their missions, Team Rose set off to Casino Park and confront Eggman, who sends the Egg Pinball. The team destroyed the Egg Pinball, and continue at Winter Isle where they find some Chao who were escaping. They are confronted by the Zero who sends the Egg Freezer to take down Team Rose and capture the Chao. Team Rose destroys the Egg Freezer, and the Chao informs the team that the other Chao were kidnapped at Frog Forest. Team Rose are more determined to put an end to the kidnapping.

At Frog Forest, Team Rose meet Team Chaotix who are on a mission to rescue the Chao by their client. They find the Chao and later defeat the Egg Fruit. Team Rose set off to Skull Valley to find any Chao, but to no avail. They defeat the Egg Skeleton. Afterwards, they arrive to the canyon where Eggman's base is located. They set to find the missing Chao inside the base. They take out the Egg Albatross, and enter inside the base. They soon learn that the Chao are being sent to the Egg Fleet. They then meet Team Dark who inform them that Metal Sonic has betrayed Eggman and is taking over. The two teams set off to the fleet. With Team Dark going on their own mission, Team Rose arrive to the main fortress and confront Zero who challenges them to a fight. Team Rose defeats Zero and finally finds the Chao.

Team Chaotix

On a particular day at the Chaotix Detective Agency, Vector is sitting at his desk in the office listening to music while Espio is standing solemnly by. Suddenly, however, Charmy comes crashing into the office with a mysterious package, claiming that they have gotten a job. Inside the package, the team finds a walkie-talkie, with a stranger who gives the team instructions through this device. The stranger claims that if the job he has for them is completed, the Chaotix will be "rewarded handsomely". Espio is wary of their client, but Vector and Charmy, with dollar signs in their eyes, reminds him that they "never turn down work that pays", and the team heads out.

After making their way past Whale Island, they beat Eggman in the Egg Hawk. They then take down every one of Eggman's robots in Hexaeco Metropolis and beat the Egg Hopper with Team Dark's help. They arrive to the Stone Gardens where they defeat the Egg Statue. In the Winter Isle, they defeat Eggman in the Egg Freezer. However, he turned out to be a fake, while the client reveals he already knows that. This causes the team to grow suspicious of their new client.

The team are sent to Frog Forest where they meet Team Rose who are looking for some Chao. The two teams rescued the Chao and beaten the Egg Fruit. The client then informs the team to put them inside a truck so they will be back in their rightful place at the Chao Garden. Team Chaotix journey to a haunted castle and inside the mansion, beating the Egg Skeleton. They infiltrate Eggman's base at the canyon and defeat the Egg Albatross. Then they set off to rescue their client, and Vector had confirmed that it was the real Dr. Eggman. Eggman explains that Metal Sonic locked him inside a room and wants to take over the world for himself. He asks for their help to stop him. The Chaotix reluctantly agree to help him, under the condition that he doesn't do any "funny business".

Along with Team Sonic, Team Chaotix board the Egg Fleet and confront Metal Sonic piloting the Egg Emperor. Team Chaotix defeat the Egg Emperor and Metal Sonic retreats, claiming that the battle is not over. The Chaotix then set off to find Eggman, hoping he would pay them for their services.

Last Story

[This story is unlocked after the four stories are completed and all 7 Chaos Emerald are collected from the Special Stages.]

Continuing from either Team Sonic and the Chaotix's stories, Metal Sonic is planning for his second attack against Sonic and his friends. Using Chaos' powers, he decides to restore all of the robots who were destroyed by the heroes, ready to begin an army. Continuing from Team Dark's story, the team notices that all of the Shadow androids have disappeared in a puddle. They leave the capsule room to investigate. Meanwhile, Team Rose gathers the Chao who were kidnapped by Metal Sonic and set outside. Also, Team Sonic is continuing destroying the fleets. The four teams gather at once and see Metal Sonic standing on a tower, declaring that the beginning of the robot empire is coming. Eggman arrives and is shocked Metal Sonic would even go this far to start an army that big, and speaks to Metal Sonic via speakers. He then grins and says, "Perfectly planned!" Eggman reveals that he staged the robot rebellion just to lure the heroes in the Egg Fortress and had Metal Sonic copy all of their abilities with the new ability copier system. He explained to Team Chaotix he made them do some missions to advance his plan including taking the Chao to his base to power up his robots. Likewise, he tells Team Rose that he needed all of the Chao to power up Metal Sonic's Chaos abilities. He tells Team Dark that the secret treasure is the Shadow Androids. And lastly, he tells Team Sonic that Metal Sonic is the ultimate weapon. He finally orders Metal Sonic, the Shadow Androids, and the rest of the robots to destroy the heroes. The heroes manage to fight off the robots. Then Metal Sonic charges up to Team Sonic, beginning a fight between the two. Team Sonic barely defeats him. Metal Sonic floats up and transforms into Metal Madness. Eggman is pleased and tells the heroes that with Metal Sonic transformed into this state, the Chaos Emeralds won't help him defeat him. Sonic wants to turn super to finish him off by himself, but the others interject and offer their help, which Sonic accepts. Team Rose, Team Chaotix, Team Dark, and Team Sonic weaken Metal Madness.

The battle was far from over, however. Metal Madness transforms into Metal Overlord, and traps Team Rose, Team Chaotix, and Team Dark in a Emerald-like cell, wanting to fight Sonic only. This leaves Team Sonic to uses the power of the emeralds to become Team Super Sonic to defeat Metal Overlord. The super team defeat Metal Overlord and Neo Metal Sonic reverts into his original form. He asks Sonic why he can't defeat him. Sonic replies that it's his friends who are the reason, and it's not through copying abilities; he then tells him to let him know when he wants a rematch. The other three teams, who had broken free from Metal Sonic's traps, congratulate Team Sonic for defeating Metal Sonic. Shadow asks Omega about his revenge against Eggman, with Omega replying that he has decided to move past it and focus on his new friendship with Shadow and Rouge, though he still considers Eggman an enemy. Eggman is frustrated that Metal Sonic and his army lost, but his frustration turns into fear when the Chaotix chase him, wanting to pay him back for making them do his work.

At the end, Team Chaotix finds a new client who is more trustworthy, Omega has joined G.U.N., Team Rose are at the Chao Garden playing with the Chao, and Team Sonic is hanging with each other at Angel Island wondering about what their next adventure will be like. The story end.
