Sonic, Rouge and Espio arrive at their destination; a large island, a once colony of the Echidnas and the location of the hidden Albion Thaumaturge. The island has not yet been discovered by men but only by Eggman. They spot Eggman's base of operations where he has brought large machines for excavations. They also spot Tails, Amy and the rest being held captive there and devise a plan for their salvation. But before long, they are attacked once again by Fang, who obeying Eggman's orders is guarding the island, waiting for Sonic to come and steal his artifacts. Fortunately, with the help of Rouge and Espio, Fang is defeated. Sonic tells Fang to guide them to Eggman so that they can save their friends.

From afar, Metal Sonic sees Sonic and his team proceeding. He decides to take actions and stop them.

Stage 21: Last Colony (Metal Sonic)

The team winds up in an ancient underground temple where they find an army of hundreds of mechanical warriors, perfectly alligned with each other in lines and untouched. Fang explains them that these machine soldiers were constructed by the Albion Knight of Aurora, as he had heard from Eggman to win the war against the Nocturnal Tribe, but after going out of control, they were diactivated for ever and were sealed here. Eggman plans to reawaken them by assembling all the Albion pieces together. The heroes wander across the vast room until they spot E-102 Gamma standing in front of a large mural again depicting a war against Echidnas. Above this event, there are huge, monstrous tentacles coming from the sky, grabbing Echidnas and causing destruction. One of the tentacles is depicted grabbing an entire piece of land and taking it above in the sky with it. They try to read the hieroglyphics but are not able to understand them. At that point, Dr. Eggman appears with his guard of robots. He tells the heroes that the Albion Thaumaturge lies behind this mural, which is actually a hidden door and one must solve the riddle which is inscribed on the mural to open the gate. He then points a gun at Sonic's forehead and demands him to solve the riddle but Metal Sonic steps hin and offers himself to solve the riddle to open the gate. After some hard thinking remembering, Metal Sonic is able to crack the code and open the gate. As the gate opens, Sonic, Tails, Amy, Espio, Rouge, Fang, Eggman and his guard enter a wide chamber. It is decorated with various hieroglyphics and covered in vegetation. There is also a small pond formed by a fall coming out of huge Echidna statues. In the centre, there is a small island with an altar in the centre where there are 9 openings, apparently for the 9 artifacts. Eggman tries to get there first but after making a few steps, the entire chamber starts shaking and the floor collapses. Eggman nearly makes it to the altar but the floor below him collapses and falls into an abyssal pit. Sonic and his team try to get there before Eggman while his army of mechs escapes. Before Sonic and his team make it to the altar and place the artifacts they have, Eggman arises from the pit inside his Egg Aura, a tremendously powerful machine empowered by 6 artifacts. He summons his army and demands the remaining artifacts from Sonic. Fang complains about having turned against him and wanting to get what Eggman promised him. The heroes battle Eggman.

Boss 8: Egg Aura & Metal Sonic (Gamma, Fang)

Eggman manages to steal Sonic's 2 artifacts during battle and quickly heads to the altar to activate the Albion Thaumaturge, but to his suprise, there are only 8 artifacts and one is missing. Eggman demands it from Sonic but Sonic denies having ever collected it. At that point, Gamma opens his chest and reveals the last remaining artifact, which was all along in his possession. After being sent from Eggman to search for the artifacts, Gamma found one of them in Old Megalopolis. However, before he could bring it to Eggman, he somehow got mixed up in a battle between the Eggman army and the G.U.N. forces, got damaged and was deactivated until he was found by Sonic, Tails and Amy. Gamma expresses his gratitude to Sonic for his help and gives it to Sonic enabling him to deliver one final blow to Eggman and destroy the Egg Aura, as well as the altar. With Eggman defeated, the entire place starts collapsing and the heroes escape as quickly as possible. They reach a safe place outside the temple which they observe as it collapses. They meet up with Professor Pickle and his mates, who have brought the G.U.N. forces with them to restore

order. They arrest Fang and secure the area. Metal Sonic's story ends with the triumph of Team Sonic.
