Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power

Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction

Part 1

On the previous episode of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Dr. Robotnik once again began putting another of his world domination plans into effect. After learning of the original three Elemental Goddesses and the kinds of powers they possess, the doctor opted to create four of his own, which he has labeled as "EG Experiments". With his latest invention, the "Egg Merger", as well as a sample of Scorch's blood, Robotnik was able to successfully create EG-001, EG-002, EG-003, and EG-004. However, as before, things did not go quite as planned, as half of the doctor's EG Experiments have gone out of his control in some way, shape, or form.

The first of his EG Experiments, EG-001/Squash, the Goddess of Stone, immediately went haywire and turned on the doctor upon being brought to life, stating that she takes no orders from no one, especially those who are weaker than herself. She then decided to come up with world domination plans of her own. The second of Dr. Robotnik's EG Experiments, EG-002/Seedra, the Goddess of Leaves, ended up siding with the Chaotix team, since the doctor mistakenly and unknowingly misplaced the Leaf Element Gem, which Tikal managed to find. EG-003/Shock, the Goddess of Lightning and EG-004/Storm, the Goddess of Wind, on the other hand, were the only ones who did not go out of his control, and remained loyal to Robotnik to the very end (although, the two of them later on stated that they enjoyed working alongside the Chaotix and company, after having to form a temporary alliance with them).

When Squash began setting her plans in motion, she eventually came across the Scepter of Darkness and accidentally released Mephiles the Dark, whom she initially mistook for Shadow the Hedgehog (due to a conflict that she had with him prior to that moment). The two of them then got acquainted, and after realizing that they had something in common, Squash and Mephiles joined forces. Unknown to the Stone Goddess, however, Mephiles merely saw her as a pawn, and was only using her to do his dirtywork for him, secretly making plans to dispose of her once he figured that her usefulness had run its course. During his "alliance" with Squash, Mephiles began devising a plan to collect all seven Chaos Emeralds and free Iblis from his captivity, so that the two of them can merge once again proceed with their ultimate goal to wipe everything out of existence.

After acquiring the knowledge about Iblis getting sealed within the Fire Element Gem, as well as using his time travel powers to his advantage, Mephiles showed Squash the ruined future that was destroyed by Iblis, and told her a lie, saying that Scorch was behind it. Additionally, Mephiles claimed that it was her actions that have led to Squash getting persecuted by humanity for a crime that she never committed. As a result, Squash then took it upon herself to hunt Scorch down in order to change the outcome of her future. However, Shadow (who knew Mephiles all too well), along with Slush, began to spread the word about his plan, which eventually reach the Chaotix and several other heroes.

After Dr. Robotnik was finished repairing the Scepter of Darkness, the Chaotix and the rest of the heroes (including Shock and Storm) ventured through the Sandopolis Zone and its pyramid (which Squash and Mephiles were using as their "base of operations") to put a stop to the villain's plans once and for all. When they got to their destination, everyone took the opportunity to inform Squash that Mephiles had been manipulating her all along. Initially, the Stone Goddess wasn't convinced, but after taking her back in time to learn of Mephiles' true motives and origin, she was finally convinced and lured to the heroes' side. From there, they all fought a fierce battle against Mephiles, and eventually emerged victorious, ultimately foiling his plans once again; this time, before he had the chance to put them into effect. Well, not entirely. As it turns out, Squash accidentally and unknowingly released Iblis during her battle with Scorch, so the two of them (along with Slush, Shock, and Storm) joined forces to take down the monster, and effectively had him sealed within the Fire Element Gem once more.

During the Elemental Goddesses' battle against Iblis, Knuckles, the Chaotix, and company were busy fighting against Dr. Robotnik and Dr. Nega's new machine, the "Egg Galaxia", while Metal Sonic and several others were busy fighting against Metal Sonic 3.0's "Overlord" transformation. Towards the end of the battle, it was revealed that Dr. Nega had planned on betraying Robotnik all along, but unfortunately for him, Robotnik managed to turn the tables on him by disabling his escape pod, which prevented him from escaping as the Egg Galaxia was destroyed. Thanks to the combined efforts of all the heroes, Dr. Nega was defeated, and the Sol Emeralds, which he stole from Blaze the Cat, were retrieved.

Miraculously, Dr. Nega survived the explosion, but unfortunately for him, he was unable to breathe in space. He then began to plead for help, claiming that he'll change his wicked ways if they do. Although they weren't convinced, they reluctantly helped him anyway under one condition: That he would return to the mental asylum that he escaped from. After they decided to help him, Dr. Nega quickly turned on them, and attempted to use his camera to turn the heroes into cards. Luckily for the heroes, he forgot to change the film cartridge, and as a result, he was powerless to defend himself, so he had no choice but to run. Thanks to Silver's telekinetic powers, as well as Seedra's control over vines and plants, they were able to prevent the deranged doctor from escaping, and he was once again brought back to the mental asylum. To celebrate their hard-earned victory over the villains, everyone decided to go to the beach.

Elsewhere, Metal Sonic emerged victorious over his doppelganger, and opted to spare his life. According to himself, that victory did not satisfy him enough (since other people "interfered" with the battle), and that he wanted a rematch, where he could fight Metal Sonic 3.0 at full strength. He then took him to Dr. Robotnik's base in the Mystic Ruins, so that he could be repaired. Along with Metal Sonic 3.0's repairs, the doctor was already working on another project; a fifth EG Experiment, which he has codenamed "EG-005". According to himself, this new creation will have the powers of all seven Elemental Goddesses wrapped up in one, with additional power from the Chaos Rings to make her invincible. When Slush found out about this, she feared that EG-005 would be too powerful for Robotnik to control (since he was also unable to control EG-001/Squash). Just as she was about to destroy the blueprints, Robotnik (who has finally caught on to the fact that Slush has been the one spying on him all this time) has caught her in the act.

Will EG-005 truly prove to be as big of a threat as Slush fears she might become? Will she ever be able to inform the Chaotix about Robotnik's new, deadly creation? Additionally, now that her secret has been found out, what horrible fate does Dr. Robotnik have in store for the Ice Goddess? Find out in this exciting episode of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power!

Slush: Dr. Robotnik… When did you-…!? That Metal Sonic copy told me that you were out, running an errand!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA… It was all part of the plan! After finally coming to the conclusion that you're the one who's been spying on me all this time, I wanted catch you in the act with my own two eyes. So, I had Metal Sonic 3.0 fool you into thinking that I wasn't here in order to get your to let your guard down. That way, I would be easily sneak up on you, unnoticed. And needless to say at this point, it succeeded!

Slush: Ugh, damn it! I should've known that trusting him was a bad idea! Especially while taking into consideration who built him…

Robotnik: Hmph, as if you're one to talk! You've been consorting with those Chaotix fools from the very beginning! To add insult to injury, you posed as my ally, only as a means of spying on me and leaking information behind my back! THAT'S why they always had such proficient knowledge of my plans before I had the chance to properly initiate them! AUGH! You sniveling TRAITOR! How DARE you!? I just don't get it! I've been BEYOND generous to you! In addition to treating you with more respect than I've shown to some of my own minions, I saved both yours AND your sister's life by freeing you from many years of captivity, and THIS is how you repay me!?

Slush: …

(You know, once he puts it that way, I do kind of feel bad about this now…)

Robotnik: Well!? What do you have to say for yourself!?

Slush: …

This "EG-005"... Are you sure that this project is a good idea? I mean, how do you know for sure that she won't turn on you, or anything? If you weren't able to control Squash, then exactly how do you expect to be able to control someone like EG-005, who happens to have power that far beyond hers? If EG-005 winds up going ballistic, there's no telling what she'll do! She may very well become the next Mephiles and try to destroy this planet! If that happens, then you could kiss your precious "Robotnik Empire" goodbye!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I must admit you DO bring up a rather compelling argument, but I could assure you, I've got everything under control!

Slush: Yeah, that's exactly what Dr. Nega said last month, when he was reviving the Solaris Project, and we all know that HOW turned out!

Robotnik: I've learned from my previous mistakes... I've taken the necessary precautions to make sure that EG-005 doesn't rebel against me like Squash did. Also, while we're on the subject, my dear Slush… I'm currently in need of a blood sample to get this project going. Would you care to take a guess as to whose I'm going to use this time? *Evil grin*

Slush: Y-You… You wouldn't happen to mean me, would you…?

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA! You guessed it! I could easily get another one from Scorch, but I wouldn't want to take TOO much of her blood. Instead, I'll just use YOURS this time! *Takes out an injector needle and starts moving toward her*

Slush: …! *Starts backing away*

Seized with fear, the Ice Goddess continued to back away from Robotnik, until she eventually ran out of space.

Slush: *Sweats nervously*

Robotnik: HAHAHA! It's no use, give up!

Hmm? Oh ho!

Slush: Huh? W-What's the matter?

Robotnik: Goodness, you have a rather ample bosom…

Slush: …

Why, you… PERVERT!

Angered by Robotnik's remark, Slush raised her hand and abruptly slapped him across the face, causing the doctor to fall over and drop his injector needle. Seeing the opportunity, Slush took advantage of the situation and decided to flee the room and make her escape.

Slush: *Running through the base at high speed* Whew, that was a close call! Unfortunately, I was in so much of a hurry that I forgot to grab those blueprints! Ah, well… As long as Robotnik can't get a sample of my blood, there's no way he'll be able to complete EG-005! So, all I need to worry about now is getting out of this place!

???: HAHAHAHAHAHA… Leaving so soon, are you?

Slush: *Looks back* Oh, great… It's Robotnik!

Robotnik: *Has a red slapmark/handprint on the side of his face* You're not going ANYWHERE, traitor!

Slush: *Speeds up*

Robotnik: *Does the same*

*The chase goes on for some time*

Slush:  Ieeee! How is it that he's able to RUN so fast!?

Robotnik: HAHAHA! I've said it before, and I'll say it again: It's no use, give up!

Slush: I've got an idea!

Unable to shake Robotnik by outrunning him, Slush decided to use her ice powers to freeze the floor behind her, causing the egg-shaped doctor to slip and fall.

Robotnik: AUUUUGH! No way! I can't BELIEVE this! *Takes out a communication device and speaks through the intercom* Attention, all Badniks! Slush is getting away, I repeat, Slush is getting away! Whatever it takes, stop her at all costs!

After hearing that announcement, tons of Badniks and Egg Pawns got in Slush's way, attempting to prevent her escape. However, she was able to quickly dismiss the group by using her ice powers to freeze them, and then break into pieces. This pattern continued for a while, and just when she thought it was safe to make her getaway, she was suddenly interrupted by Metal Sonic Version 3.0.

Slush: So, it's YOU again…

Metal Sonic 3.0: You have done well to get this far, Slush, the Goddess of Ice. However, though, I'm afraid this is the end of the line for you.

Slush: Alright, let's make this quick! *Holds out the palm of her hand*

Just as Slush was getting ready to freeze Metal Sonic 3.0 as she had done to all the other Badniks, he quickly immobilized her via telekinesis before she had the chance to do so.

Slush: Ghhh…! W-What's…going on!? I…can't…budge! *Tries to resist*

Metal Sonic 3.0: Resistance is futile. No matter how hard you struggle, you cannot release yourself from my telekinetic grasp.

Slush: W-Why, you…!

Robotnik: *Enters the room* HAHAHAHAHAHA! Excellent work, Metal Sonic 3.0! Now, you continue to hold her down, while I get the blood sample that I need!

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Nods*

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! It's quite ironic, isn't it? After ALL the work you've done in trying to prevent EG-005's creation, you're going to be the very person responsible for bringing her to life!

Slush: GRRR…

Robotnik: Now then… Let's get down to business, shall we? *Starts walking towards Slush with the injector needle*

Slush: N-No! You stay back!

Robotnik: *Ignores her and keeps moving*

Slush: I SAID STAY BACK!!! *Creates a blizzard*

Robotnik: WHA-…!? *Resists as he gets blown back by the current*

Slush: As for YOU… *Glares at Three-Point Zero* You can't keep this up forever, you know! You stole that ability from Silver, and from what I've seen, that technique could only be used for a limited time, until its user starts to tire out!

Metal Sonic 3.0: That may be true for organic beings such as he, but that isn't the case with me! I could keep this up for as long as I wish!

Slush: (Well, so much for THAT theory…)

As Robotnik continued to resist the wind current from the blizzard that Slush created, he eventually managed to get close enough to get a good stab on her arm.

Slush: UHHHH!

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Releases her*

Slush: *Kneels down, holding her arm*

Robotnik: You see? That wasn't so bad now, was it?

Slush: Hmph! Bite me, Robotnik!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA… Well, that's that, I suppose! Now that I've obtained the blood sample that I desire, I no longer have any need for you.

Slush: Are you saying that you're…letting me go?

Robotnik: What, so you leak information about EG-005 to those Chaotix fools like you've been doing for the past month? Of course not! I'm going to do something I should have done a LONG time ago…

Slush: Wait, what are you…trying to imply…?

Robotnik: *Takes out Dr. Nega's camera*

Slush: N-NO! NOT THAT! *Gets up, starts backing away, and gets ready to run off*

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Stops her again with telekinesis*

Slush: LET GO OF ME! *Jerks away*

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHA! It's been nice knowing you! *Aims the camera at her* Goodbye, Slush! *Presses the button*


Just then, a sudden flash of light occurred, and immediately, in just a single click of a button, Slush wound up getting herself turned into a card.

Robotnik: HAHAHAHA…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! *Picks up her card* It's lights out for you, traitor! You've stabbed me in the back for the last time!

Metal Sonic 3.0: …May I ask what the point is in speaking to her, if she's unable to hear you?

Robotnik: It doesn't matter. All that counts, is that the spy has been sniffed out and taken care of. HAHAHAHAHA… You just don't know HOW relieved I am about this! Now that she's out of the picture, I'm free to proceed with my plans without the Chaotix or Sonic and the rest of HIS allies catching wind of it! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I'm already ANOTHER step closer to finally realizing my ambitions! When Project EG-005 is complete, all of my enemies will be vanquished, and then I'll finally be able to build the Robotnik Empire and rule this world without any trouble!

Metal Sonic 3.0: …

Robotnik: By the way, Metal Sonic 3.0… I need you to do me another favor…

Metal Sonic 3.0: What is it?

Robotnik: When Scorch, Shock, and Storm arrive, I need you to refrain from saying even a single word about this incident. As far as we're concerned, everything that's gone on up until now… It never happened. Got it?

Metal Sonic 3.0: Understood.

Robotnik: Good, good. I'm glad we're on the same page.

One week later, without anyone to interrupt him, Dr. Robotnik was nearly finished creating EG-005. On the table, laid a female hedgehog that looked nearly identical to the seven other Goddesses, but with slight differences in her appearance, such as shiny, silver-colored fur, along with a red and silver dress (which had diamond shapes like the ones her sisters wear), a golden tiara with a colorful gem, golden ring bracelets, sandals.

Scorch: So, this is her, right, Dr. Robotnik?

Robotnik: Yes, indeed.

Shock: Nice. It looks as if things are coming along smoothly so far.

Storm: So, exactly how much longer until her development phase is complete?

Robotnik: It shouldn't take much longer. I've already used the Egg Merger to infuse EG-005's gem with samples of all seven elements, now as soon as Metal Sonic Version 3.0 arrives with the Chaos Rings, I'll merge those together with the Multi-Elemental Gem, and then bring her to life! With the power of the Chaos Rings, EG-005 will truly be unstoppable! Even the White Echidna Project will pale in comparison to the power she'll possess!

Shock: "White Echidna Project"? Wait, you wouldn't happen to mean that white echidna that looks like Knuckles, right? I had no idea he was a creation of yours, or even a science experiment for that matter! But then again, I guess it WOULD explain the red eyes…

Robotnik: Yes, Wechnia is a creation of mine. A faulty, rebellious creation, that is, similar to Squash. A while ago, I created him by infusing Knuckles' and Mighty's DNA with the power of the Master Emerald.

Shock: Ah, okay.

Ten minutes later…

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Enters* Dr. Robotnik, I have successfully retrieved the seven Chaos Rings!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA… Excellent work as always, Metal Sonic 3.0! I've always known you would be of use to me, ever since the day Scorch brought you to this base while you were in need of repairs! Now, if you would be so kind as to place them within the Egg Merger's slot, I could begin the experiment.

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Nods, walks toward the Egg Merger, and places the Chaos Rings*

Robotnik: As for me, I'll go ahead and place the Multi-Element Gem into the other one… *Places it* HAHAHAHAHA! Alright, everyone! Now it's time for the moment of truth! *Activates the machine*

After placing the seven Chaos Rings and the Multi-Elemental Gem into the Egg Merger's slots, Robotnik activated the machine in order for the fusion process to begin. Unfortunately, much to the doctor's disappointment, the machine appeared to be malfunctioning.

Robotnik: H-Huh!? What the…!? What's going on!?

Scorch: Is it…my imagination, or is this thing about to blow!?

Shock: Well, I'm not sticking around to find out, that's for sure!

Robotnik: Perhaps you have the right idea, Shock. Let's get out of here while we still can!

Storm: Right.

Before the five of them were able to make it to the exit, the Egg Merger spontaneously burst, with the seven Chaos Rings and the Multi-Elemental Gem getting sent flying all over the place. Before the gem could get any further, Scorch quickly hovered into the air and caught it. The Chaos Rings, on the other hand, ended up getting scattered.


Storm: Well, isn't THAT perfect?

Shock: All of that work for nothing, huh? What a shame…

Scorch: Well, on the bright side, I was at least able to recover that Multi-Element Gem. See? *Holds it up*

Robotnik: Ah, I see! Excellent work, Scorch!

W-Wait a minute… Its coloring! What happened to it!? It looks exactly as it did at first, before I transferred the powers of those seven elements into it! What could have happened to it, exactly!?

Metal Sonic 3.0: Perhaps during the merging process, the power of the Multi-Element Gem was transferred into the Chaos Rings?

Robotnik: You know, that actually sounds quite logical. After all, the number of elemental powers is akin to the number of Chaos Rings, so perhaps each of the seven elements ended up combining its powers with one of the Chaos Rings, making them the "Elemental Chaos Rings"!

Scorch: Ah, I see! I guess that wasn't a total loss, after all! It's too bad they got scattered everywhere, though.

Robotnik: I guess this means we're going to have to retrieve them, but no matter. With my built-in radar device, we should be able to find them again in no time! When we do, that's when we'll finally be able to bring EG-005 to life!

Storm: I've been thinking, Doctor…

Robotnik: Hmm?

Storm: When EG-005 is brought to life, what are you going to name her, exactly?

Robotnik: I haven't thought of one yet, but I will eventually, when the time comes.

Scorch: There's something I've been wondering, as well. Where has Slush been, exactly? I don't believe I've seen her at all for the past week…

Metal Sonic 3.0: …

Robotnik: …

You know, that's a good question… I'm quite puzzled about this, myself, but wherever she is, I'm sure she's fine. Let's not worry about her right now, let's go ahead and focus on getting those Elemental Chaos Rings! *Places the colorless gem back in EG-005's tiara*

Scorch: Sure thing, Dr. Robotnik.

Wasting no more time, the five of them immediately left the base and began tracking down the seven Elemental Chaos Rings. Elsewhere on Angel Island, Knuckles and Wechnia, who were standing around the Master Emerald at the altar, happened to spot one of the scattered rings flying through the air.

Knuckles: Whoa! Wechnia, did you see that?

Wechnia: Yes. That was one of the Chaos Rings, if I'm not mistaken.

Knuckles: Yeah, but there was something…different about it all of a sudden. It has this strange fiery aura around it.

Wechnia: I've noticed. Why don't we go check it out, so we could examine them further?

Knuckles: Good idea, but before we go, why don't we go ahead and turn on the security system, just in case someone may try stealing the Master Emerald while we're away.

Wechnia: That "someone" being Nack the Weasel and Bean the Dynamite, right?

Knuckles: Yeah, that's if the two of them haven't gotten arrested after what happened last week. *Presses the "On" button* It looked as if that fiery Chaos Ring was heading towards the volcano.

Wechnia: Got it. Alright, let's get moving.

After enabling the new security system that Heavy and Bomb installed for the Master Emerald, Knuckles and Wechnia took off and start heading towards Lava Reef/Red Mountain in order to obtain and examine the fiery Chaos Ring. With that said, the hunt is on! Which side will emerge victorious in collecting the Elemental Chaos Rings, the heroes or the villains? Will the word about Slush's capture ever get out somehow? Find out on the next exciting chapter of Elements of Power!

To "bee" continued…

Part 2

Last time, on The Goddess of Destruction, Dr. Robotnik had finally come to the conclusion that Slush has been the one leaking information to the Chaotix team behind his back for the past month. In order to ensure that the word about his latest project, "EG-005" doesn't get out, he has opted to capture the Ice Goddess, but not before getting a blood sample from her, which he needed in order to bring his creation to life. Slush tried as hard as she could to resist, but thanks to the assistance of the newly-repaired Metal Sonic Version 3.0 and the data that he copied from Silver the Hedgehog, he was able to hold her down with a telekinetic force, making it easier for Robotnik to stab her with the injector needle.

After getting the blood sample that he desired, Robotnik decided that he no longer had any need for her. Again, to make sure that information about EG-005 doesn't get leaked, the doctor decided to turn Slush into a card, effectively punishing the Ice Goddess for her treachery. One week later, Robotnik had made lots of progress, and was on the verge of completing EG-005's development. Using his machine, the Egg Merger, he tried infusing the energy of the Chaos Rings with the Multi-Elemental Gem that he created. Suddenly, the machine started to malfunction, but before then, it managed to complete the fusion process; just not in the way the doctor intended. Instead, each of the seven elements ended up getting infused within one of the seven Chaos Rings, which resulted in the creation of the "Elemental Chaos Rings".

As the machine exploded, the seven Elemental Chaos Rings ended up getting scattered everywhere, all throughout Angel Island. Seeing no other alternative, Dr. Robotnik, along with Metal Sonic 3.0, Scorch, Shock, and Storm have decided to leave the base and began searching for the Elemental Chaos Rings. Meanwhile, Knuckles the Echidna and Wechnia, who were guarding the Master Emerald at the altar, happened to spot one of them floating around, heading towards Lava Reef/Red Mountain. After activating the new security system that the robo-mechanics, Heavy and Bomb installed for the Master Emerald, the two echidnas decided to head towards the volcano to collect the newly-infused Chaos Ring in order to examine it. Little did they know, however, that Robotnik and his group were also seeking them.

Now that the hunt has begun, who will claim the fire-themed Chaos Ring first? Knuckles and Wechnia, or Robotnik and the others? Additionally, will the word ever get out about Slush's capture? If so, will Knuckles and company be able to successfully rescue her and prevent EG-005's creation? Find out on this exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Meanwhile, at the office of the Chaotix Detective Agency…

Espio: *Sitting in a corner, in deep meditation* …

Charmy: *Watching Dragon Ball Z on TV* Hee hee hee, it's about to happen, Vector!

Vector: Heh heh! Yeah, I know!

*On the show, a news crew gets blasted and killed in a helicopter explosion, and one of the characters exclaims "Look! I can see their parachutes! They're okay…"*



Vector: Oh, wow! Gimme a break! Are they freakin' SERIOUS? How stupid do they think people are? Those people CLEARLY weren't wearin' parachutes before the thing blew up! 'N' even if they were, there's no WAY they'd have been able to escape that in time!

Charmy: Yeah, I know!

Splash: So, this is where you got the "parachutes" thing from, huh, Charmy?

Charmy: Hee hee, yep! That part is really, REALLY funny!

Splash: Personally, I didn't see what was so funny about it. It's already bad enough that those innocent lives were taken, but then they just totally insult the viewers' intelligence by claiming that they got away okay, even though they clearly didn't.

Vector: Ah, lighten up, will ya, Splash? It's just a TV show, it's nutin' ta take seriously. 'N' besides, people 're always gettin' wished back ta life left 'n' right that series! Also, it's only 'da censorship we were laughin' at, not the peoples' deaths. We wouldn't laugh at somethin' like that.

Splash: I see.

*Suddenly a beeping sound is heard*

Vector: Ah, 'dat must be Slush! I'll bet she's reportin' anotha discovery about Robotnik's plans!

Charmy: Hee hee, "that must bee Slush". Get it? *Snickers*

Splash: *Giggles* The "parachutes" scene might not have been funny, but that certainly was!

Vector: *Picks up the walkie-talkie and answers it* Yeah? Is that you, Slush?

Slush: Yes, it's… *Czzzzt!*…Me… *Czzzzt!* I have… *Czzzzt!* …Something important to tell you, and… *Czzzzt!* I don't know how much… *Czzzzt!* …Longer the… *Czzzzt!* …Signal will be able to hold out, so listen… *Czzzzt!* …Carefully!

Vector: A'ight, I'm listenin'. What is it?

Slush: I've... I've been captured, and… *Czzzzt!* …Turned into a card… *Czzzzt!* …By Dr. Nega's camera!

Everyone: WHAT!?

Espio: *Quickly opens his eyes* …!

Splash: You've been turned into a card!? How can that be!? I thought for sure that Dr. Nega was taken back to that mental institution!

Slush: It wasn't Dr. Nega… *Czzzzzt!* …It was Robotnik… HE did it! He found out… *Czzzzt!* …About my secret, somehow! He knows… *Czzzzzt!* …That I'M the one who's been spying on him!

Vector: Oh, great… Now that's just PERFECT! I knew 'dere was only a matter o' time until 'e found out, but I didn't know he'd catch on 'DAT soon!

Charmy: Wait a second… If you got turned into a card, then how is it that you're able to talk to us?

Slush: Well, as it turns out… *Czzzzt!* ...There's another dimension that lies behind… *Czzzzt!* …The cards from Dr. Nega's camera! I've been in here… *Czzzzt!* …For at least a week now after discovering the new project… *Czzzzt!* …That Robotnik's working on. He was determined… *Czzzzt!* …To make sure that I wouldn't… *Czzzzt!* …Be around to tell about it. I would have… *Czzzzt!* …Let you know about this sooner, but… *Czzzzzt!* …I ended up losing consciousness, and I'm only… *Czzzzt!* …Just waking up.

Splash: GRRR… Robotnik! He won't get away with this! Don't worry, Slush, we'll save you as soon as possible!

Slush: Thanks, but before rescuing me, I think… *Czzzzt!* …You should focus on stopping Robotnik from… *Czzzzt!* …Completing the project he's working on.

Espio: Just out of curiosity, what kind of "project" is he working on, exactly?

Slush: He's working on a… *Czzzzt!* …Fifth EG Experiment. *Czzzzt!* He has codenamed it… *Czzzzt!* "EG-005".

Charmy: "Eee-Jee-Double-Oh-Five"?

Slush: Yes. He says that it's… *Czzzzt!* …Meant to be his most powerful creation yet, as it will contain… *Czzzzt!* The combined powers of all seven Elemental Goddesses, plus… *Czzzzt!* …Energy from all seven Chaos Rings!

Vector: Holy crap! This ain't good…

Slush: Indeed it isn't. If Robotnik… *Czzzzt!* …Manages to complete this project, I it'll be too powerful for him to control! If he… *Czzzzt!* …Couldn't control Squash, then it's definitely safe to assume… *Czzzzt!* …That he won't be able to keep EG-005 under his control, either! She may very well… *Czzzzt!* …Become the next Mephiles!

Vector: We'll definitely be sure ta put a stop to all this! 'Da absolute LAST thing we need is anotha psychopath like Mephiles runnin' rampant!

Charmy: That reminds me… Did you guys ever find out where Shadow put that scepter thing after Squash sealed him up again?

Espio: I heard from Rouge that Shadow tossed the Scepter of Darkness into the Ifrit's dimension, and sealed it with the seven Chaos Emeralds. So thankfully, we'll never have to worry about him showing his face again.

Slush: That's… *Czzzzt!* …Good to hear. Now back to the subject at hand… *Czzzzt!* I overheard everything… *Czzzzt!* …That's been going on, recently. Apparently, Robotnik's almost finished with the project, and he would have been already, if it weren't… *Czzzzt!* …For a certain mishap that took place during an experiment, where he tried… *Czzzzt!* …Infusing the Chaos Rings with the power of the Multi-Element Gem that he created. The energy from that gem… *Czzzzt!* …Ended up getting transferred into the Chaos Rings, so now they're called "Elemental Chaos Rings".

Charmy: Wow, really!? That is SO cool!

Slush: After Robotnik's machine exploded… *Czzzzt!* …The Elemental Chaos Rings scattered throughout various places on Angel Island. Robotnik, along with Metal Sonic 3.0, Scorch, Shock, and Storm… *Czzzzt!* …Are currently searching high and low for them. You need to… *Czzzzt!* …Find the rings before they do!

Vector: Sure, no problem! Just leave it ta us! C'mon, boys… 'n Splash! Let's get ta work!

After Slush informed them about the situation, the Chaotix team and Splash quickly hurried out the door to begin their quest for the seven Elemental Chaos Rings.

Charmy: Where should we look first, Vector?

Vector: I dunno. That's why we're gonna head ovah to Tails' Workshop in the Mystic Ruins 'n borrow 'is detector. That way, we'll be able to find all them Chaos Rings wit' no problem!

Charmy: …

Hee hee, "bee able". Get it? *Snickers*

*Everyone (except for Splash) anime falls*

Vector: Good grief, Charmy! Give those puns a rest for once, will ya!? They've stopped bein' funny AGES ago!

Splash: I disagree. *Giggles*

Espio: Even so, this isn't the time for joking around. We have a mission to fulfill.

Charmy: Alright, alright. So, anyway, you said we were going to Tails' Workshop, right?

Vector: Yeah.

*They go to Tails' Workshop in the Mystic Ruins and explain the situation*

Tails: W-WHAT!? Slush has been captured, and Robotnik's working on another EG Experiment!? And in order for him to complete the project, he's seeking these "Elemental Chaos Rings" that have been scattered all over the island?

Espio: Yes, that's right.

Heavy: I'm afraid this doesn't bode well at all… The power that Robotnik is currently seeking to complete this "EG-005"… It may even be enough to give the White Echidna Project a run for its money!

Bomb: Yeah, that's for sure. Do you know whether or not Robotnik has gotten ahold of one yet?

Vector: We don't know fa sure. All Slush told us, was that he, Scorch, Shock, Storm, and Metal Sonic 3.0 are "searchin' high and low" for 'em, so I guess it's safe ta assume that they haven't yet.

Tails: Wait a minute… Metal Sonic 3.0 is still alive? Since when did he start working for Robotnik, rather than Dr. Nega?

Vector: We're not sure of all 'da details, but my guess is 'dat 'e survived his battle wit' Metal Sonic last week, and then Robotnik ended up findin' him, and then gettin' 'im repaired 'n' reprogrammed, or somethin'.

Tails Makes sense I guess. Anyway, I’m gonna go ahead and lend you that detector now. *Takes the detector off the shelf and hands it to Vector*

Vector: Thank ya very much.

Tails: No problem. Whenever the thing runs out of energy, just drop on by again, and I'll recharge it.

Vector: I'll keep 'dat in mind. A'ight, now let's get movin', you guys!

With Tails' emerald detector in hand, the four heroes quickly jetted out of the workshop to begin tracking down the first Elemental Chaos Ring before Robotnik does.

Charmy: Hey, Vector, what does the scouter, I mean…detector say about the first Elemental Chaos Ring?

Vector: *Checks* Accordin' to the readings, the first one landed at the volcano somewhere. Why don't we have a look ovah there?

Splash: I don't see why not.

*They leave*

As the four of them were leaving, they were unknowingly being watched by the two crooks, Nack the Weasel/Fang the Sniper and Bean the Dynamite, who were currently hiding in the bushes (since they're on the run from the police, who happened to be in the area at the time).

Nack: *Pokes his head out of the bushes* HAHAHA! Did 'ja hear 'dat, Bean!? I think we've just found ourselves anuddah opportunity ta make ourselves filthy, stinkin' rich!

Bean: Yeah, I heard. They said something about "Elemental Chaos Rings"… Whatever they are, they sound pretty interesting. It definitely sounds like something the jewelry market would pay tons of cash for!

Nack: Yep! As usual, bruddah, you 'r' definitely speakin' my language! Now, whadda ya say we follow 'em, 'n' have 'em lead us to 'dem Element Rings, 'r wudevah they're called? It'll definitely save us 'da trouble o' trackin' all of 'em down ourselves! All we'll hafta do when 'da time comes, is take it from 'em! When 'dat's all said 'n' done, 'da two o' us 'r' gonna be swimmin' in a truckload o' cash! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!


As the two of them laughed maniacally, their location ended up getting revealed, and a searchlight from a police helicopter shone down on them. Shortly afterwards, all of the police that were in the area rushed over to the bush, pointing guns at the two criminals.

Policeman #1: *Through the speaker* Fang the Sniper, Bean the Dynamite! We have you two surrounded! Surrender yourselves! There's no escape!

Nack: Ah, crap! AH, CRAAAAAAAP! Looks like dey've spotted us! C'mon, Bean! We gotta bus' outta 'dis joint!

Bean: Right, but first… *Takes out a bomb and lights the fuse* I'm gonna give them a little taste of Dynamite Power!

After lighting the bomb's fuse, Bean abruptly slammed it on the floor, causing smoke to pour out. Taking advantage of the police's clouded vision, Nack and Bean decided to make their escape. While they were on the run, they spotted an unoccupied police car. Due to the fact that they had no other means of transportation (since Honey destroyed the Marvelous Queen in the second episode), the two of them decided to steal the car and drive off.

Nack: HAHAHAHAHAHA! Man, 'dat was too easy! Like takin' candy from a baby!

Bean: Don't look now, but we've still got those police choppers on our tail!

Nack: Ah, don't even worry abou' dit! I've goddit ALL unda control! Here, you take 'da wheel for a li'l bit.

*They switch sides*

Nack: *Aims his gun out the window* EAT LEAD, CHUMPS! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *Starts firing at the helicopters*

*Both Nack and the cops continue firing back and forth at one another all throughout the chase*

Nack: AH, CRAAAAAAP! Man, 'dere's just no shakin' 'dese guys!

Bean: Why don't we switch sides again? I'll take it from here.

*They switch again*

Bean: *Lights another bomb and hangs it out the window* This time, they're gonna learn the true meaning of the words "Dynamite Power" for sure!

Once again, after lighting the fuse, Bean tossed the bomb into the air, at the police choppers. This time, however, it wasn't a smoke bomb. It was one of his regular bombs, and as it detonated and got one helicopter caught in it, the explosion began to spread to all the others, as well.


Bean: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, yeah! I don't think they'll be bothering us for a while after that!

Nack: A'ight, now 'dat we ain't got no more interruptions 'n' what-not, let's go ahead 'n' start lookin' fa 'dem Element Rings, or wudevah they're called.

Bean: Right.

*They drive off*

Meanwhile, at the volcano…

Wechnia: There it is, Knuckles! The fiery Chaos Ring!

Knuckles: You're right! *Walks over to the Fire Element Ring*

Wechnia: If I were you, I'd do that with caution. That thing looks as if it's a little too hot to touch with our bare hands.

Knuckles: Good point. Alright, here goes… *Slowly reaches for it*

Before Knuckles had a chance to pick it up, a fireball was suddenly shot in their direction.

Wechnia: Knuckles! Look out! *Dodges*

Knuckles: WHOA! *Narrowly manages to dodge* Okay, who's there!? Go ahead and show yourself!

???: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Well, if it isn't my dear friend, Knuckles and that traitor, Wechnia!

Knuckles: *Looks* Robotnik!? Scorch, too!?

Wechnia: What are you two doing here?

Robotnik: Isn't it obvious? We're here for the Elemental Chaos Ring, of course!

Wechnia: "Elemental…"

Knuckles: "…Chaos Ring"?

Robotnik: That's correct. Thank you very much, gentlemen, for being so kind as to track it down for us! It certainly saved us the trouble of looking! In addition to tracking its location on radar, all we had to do was follow your lead. So, basically, what I'm trying to say is that you practically led us right TO it!

Scorch: Now, you boys had best play it smart by simply handing it over.

Knuckles: Not a chance!

Wechnia: Yes, I mean, honestly. Why even bother saying things like that, if you don't actually expect us to do it?

Scorch: HAHAHAHAHA… Well, fine. Have it your way. To be honest, I was hoping you would say something like that, Knuckles, because I've been looking forward to a rematch for a long time. Hopefully this time, there won't be anymore interruptions. This time, I'll defeat you for sure!

Knuckles: We'll see about that. *Cracks his knuckles*

It looks like things are heating up…literally! Although Knuckles and Wechnia have managed to track down the first Elemental Chaos Ring, Dr. Robotnik and Scorch have made an unexpected appearance, and have challenged the two echidnas to a fiery showdown! Which side will emerge victorious and walk away with the Fire Ring; Knuckles and Wechnia and Scorch and Robotnik? Find out on the next exciting chapter of The Goddess of Destruction!

To "bee" continued…

Part 3

When we last left off, the Chaotix Detective Agency (along with the Water Goddess, Splash, who happened to be with them at the time) got a call from Slush, who was apparently trapped in another dimension, which lied behind the card she was "turned into" by Dr. Nega's camera. From there, the Ice Goddess relayed a message to the group, saying that she had been captured, and informed them about Dr. Robotnik's master plan, which was to retrieve the seven Elemental Chaos Rings that he mistakenly created, so that he could use their powers to bring his deadly creation, EG-005 to life. Wasting no more time, Espio the Chameleon, Charmy Bee, Vector the Crocodile, and Splash hurried over to Tails' Workshop to borrow his detector, so that they could track down the seven rings before Robotnik does, and rescue Slush.

Unknown to them, their conversation was overheard by the two criminals, Nack the Weasel/Fang the Sniper and Bean the Dynamite, who've decided to join the hunt and claim the Elemental Chaos Rings themselves, so they could sell them for a price. Elsewhere, Knuckles and Wechnia, who were guarding the Master Emerald at the altar, happened to spot one of the Elemental Chaos Rings heading towards the volcano. Although they were unaware of what was happening at the time, they were merely curious about the Chaos Rings' newfound elemental powers, and decided to venture through the volcano to examine it further. Shortly after they found it, Scorch and Robotnik showed up to claim the trinket for themselves. Scorch told the two echidnas to "play it smart" by quietly handing the Chaos Ring to them, but Knuckles and Wechnia, knowing that Robotnik was up to no good, were unwilling to give it up without a fight. Which side will claim the Fire Element Ring and walk away the victor: Knuckles and Wechnia or Scorch and Robotnik? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Scorch: It's been too long since our last fight, wouldn't you say, Knuckles?

Knuckles: It hasn't been that long. It was only last month, you know. Or perhaps you're getting a little forgetful in your old age? *Smirks*


Robotnik: Now, now, Scorch, just calm down...

Scorch: *Ignores Robotnik* GRRR… I'll have you know that I look EXTRAORDINARILY good for someone my age! Yes, I may be nine thousand years old, but so what!? I haven't aged one BIT since then! I'm still as young and pretty as I was before, and that's never going to change! Someone like YOU wouldn't know true beauty if it bit straight in the-

Robotnik: ENOUGH! Just calm down! Do you want to cause another volcanic eruption like you did last month!? If that happens, then we'll be forced to retreat again, and your battle will never reach a true conclusion! It's either that, or we'll all get caught in the lava, and you'll kill us all! Is THAT what you want!? It may not have any effect on you, for obvious reasons, but have you taken Iblis into consideration? He's still trapped within the Fire Element Gem, you know! I don't think I even NEED to remind you what'll happen if the gem comes in contact with the magma!

Scorch: …

*Sighs* I guess you have a point, Doctor. I'll do my best to remain calm.

Robotnik: There, that's better.

Wechnia: I'd hate to admit it, Knuckles, but Robotnik's right. Being the Goddess of Fire, her rage could very well cause this volcano to erupt. So, I don't think it would be wise to provoke her with anymore insults regarding her age.

Knuckles: Alright, point taken.

Scorch: Okay. Let's get this over with.

Robotnik: Hold on a second! Before you begin… Scorch, would you mind letting me hold on to the Fire Element Gem, just in case you fall into the lava? We don't want to risk having Iblis set free again.

Scorch: Sure thing, Dr. Robotnik. *Takes it off of her tiara and tosses it to him*

Robotnik: *Catches it* Alright, now you may begin!

Knuckles: Wechnia, leave this one to me. I can handle her on my own.

Wechnia: Very well.

So then, the battle began. Scorch started by holding out the palm of her hand and launching fireballs at Knuckles, which he managed to dodge as he continued to get closer to the Fire Goddess. Eventually, he got close enough to land a punch, but she quickly grabbed his fist.

Scorch: What, is that all? *Starts burning his fist as she holds on to it*

Knuckles: UHHHHHHH! *Swings his other one at her*

Scorch: *Does the same thing to that one*

Knuckles: GAAAH!

Scorch: HAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, come on… Surely, you can do better than this? Yes, I know… In addition to being exceptionally beautiful, I'm quite powerful, as well, but even so, you still put up a MUCH better fight than this last month. What happened? You're not going easy on me because I'm a girl, are you? I do remember hearing you say before that you "[took] no pleasure in fighting women".

Knuckles: You're right… I DON'T like to fight women, but I will if I have to! *Headbutts Scorch right in the face*

Scorch: UHHHHHH! *Falls backward and holds her face, losing her fiery grip on Knuckles' hands in the process*

Wechnia: Nice counterattack.

Knuckles: Thanks. *Starts blowing his hands to cool them off*

Robotnik: Are you alright, Scorch?

Scorch: Yeah, I'm fine. *Gets up and removes her hands from her face, revealing some blood around her nose* Hmph, you've got a hard head, I'll give you that. *Wipes the blood off* Well, that's about it for the warm-up. What do you say we stop playing around and get serious?

Knuckles: That's fine by me. *Fighting stance*

Scorch:  *Same*

Robotnik: (Hmm… I wonder if there's a way for me to quietly sneak away with the Elemental Chaos Ring without Knuckles or Wechnia noticing? I just may give that a try as soon as I get the opportunity to do so…) *Starts sneaking over there*

Scorch: *Holds out the palm of her hand* Take…THIS! *Launches a fire wave at him*

Knuckles: *Dodges*

Scorch: *Continues shooting at him*

Knuckles: *Continues dodging and starts running toward her again*

Scorch: HAHAHAHAHAHA! What, this again? Have you already forgotten what happened a few minutes ago? *Launches another fire wave*

Knuckles: *Dodges that one, too* Knuckle Slam! *Pounds the ground and causes a slight vibration*

Scorch: W-What..!? *Struggles to keep her balance*

Knuckles: (NOW'S my chance!) *Punches Scorch as soon as he gets close enough to her*

Scorch: Uhhhhhhh! *Slides backward* Alright, now you've done it! *Surrounds her fists with fire and charges toward Knuckles* HAAAAAAH!

Knuckles: HAAAAAAH! *Charges toward her, too (with fire around his fist also)*

*They continue throwing punches one another and their fists clash*

While the two of them were in the "heat" of battle, almost entirely unaware of their surroundings, Robotnik was starting to get closer and closer to the Fire Element Chaos Ring. Just in time before he had the chance to grab it, Wechnia, who caught on to what the doctor was going, quickly grabbed his arm.

Wechnia: Touch it, and I'll break your arm.

Robotnik: Is that so? HAHAHAHAHAHA… You just go ahead and try it! I'll gladly see to it that you suffer the same fate as Slu-

Scorch: *Quickly looks over there*

Robotnik: *Notices* …I mean, umm…some OTHER meddler that tried interfering with my plans about a week ago.

Scorch:  (A…week ago? I wonder...) *Gets punched in the face after letting her guard down* Uhhhhhh!

Knuckles: Here's a friendly piece of advice: Always keep your eyes on your opponent.

Scorch: Hmph! Oh, shut up! I don't need any advice from you! *Punches him in the stomach*

Knuckles: Uhhhhhh! *Kneels down, regains his composure, and does the same to her*

Scorch: Ghhhhhh…! *Tackles Knuckles*

*A smoke cloud appears over them as they roll around the ground, fighting*

Wechnia: I have a few questions, Doctor. First of all, who is this "other meddler" that you speak of? Secondly, where did these mysterious new Chaos Rings come from, and why is it that you're after them?

Robotnik: I'm afraid that's classified information.


Hmm, but then again, I suppose I CAN answer your first question! *Takes out Dr. Nega's camera* You'll know for yourself as soon as you join her!

Wechnia: …!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *Aims the camera at him*

Just as Robotnik was getting ready to click the button, Wechnia quickly swung him by the arm and tossed him into the wall with so much force that it caused him to crash right through it.


Wechnia: Hmph. *Picks up the Fire Ring and continues watching the fight* It looks as if those two are really going at it…

Elsewhere, outside of the volcano…

Vector: Here it is, boys…'n' Splash. Accordin' to the radar, one o' those Elemental Chaos Rings're somewhere in this volcano. Now, I just hope we'll be able to geddit wit'out gettin' burnt to a crisp…

Charmy: Hee hee, "bee able". Get it, Splash? *Snickers*

Splash: Yes, I most certainly do! *Giggles*

Espio: *Sweatdrops*

Vector: *Same* Splash, how is it that you still find those puns funny? Knuckles is right, y'know. You've heard 'em enough times for them to've gotten old by now!

Splash: I don't know. It's just as I said before… For some reason, they just never seem to get old to me.

Get it, Charmy? "Beefore"? *Giggles again*

*Espio and Vector anime fall*

Charmy: Hee hee hee! You're funny, Splash! Really, REALLY funny!

Splash: Why, thank you!

Vector: For cryin' out loud, 'ja guys! Do ya wanna get those Chaos Rings 'n' save Slush, or not?

Splash: Right, of course. Come on, let's get going.

*They enter the volcano*

Bean: *Comes from the bushes* It's about TIME! Sheesh! Could those puns possibly get any lamer?

Nack: Ya got 'DAT right! I swear, if I hoid anuddah one o' 'dem puns, I was 'bout ta lose it!

Bean:  Same here, but enough about that. What's the plan? We wait for them to find the Chaos Ring, and then steal it from them?

Nack: Yeah, but befo'ah 'den, I say we throw a smoke bomb at 'em 'r somethin' ta catch 'em off guard foist, and 'DEN swipe it!

Bean: Good idea! Also, why don't we try setting a trap for them, too, like we did last time? After we take the Chaos Ring from them, they'll most likely chase us for it, and during the chase, they'll end up falling RIGHT into our trap, just like before!

Nack: HAHAHAHAHA! As always, you're definitely speakin' my language! 'Dis time, though, let's diggit a lot closah ta our ride, so we'll be able ta make our getaway wit'out nobody interruptin' us!

Bean: Sounds good to me!

Nack: 'Dis time, 'dose Chaotix chumps ain't gonna know what hit 'em! Preddy soon, 'da two've us 'r' gonna be filthy, stinkin' RICH! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!


Inside the volcano…

Espio: So, what does the radar say about the Chaos Ring's location?

Vector: It says that we gotta keep movin' somewhere in 'DIS direction. *Points* As soon as we grab it, I say we get outta here 'n' FAST! All this vibratin' is makin' me feel a bit uneasy…

Espio: Indeed. This volcano could erupt at any given moment, so let's find it as quickly as we can.

Further into the volcano…

Knuckles: *Pins Scorch to the ground*

Scorch: Uhhhhh! *Surrounds herself with a fiery aura and knocks him away with a surge of energy*

Knuckles: WHOOOOOAAAH! *Gets blown backwards and falls to the ground*

Scorch: *Gets back up and dashes toward him* HAHAHAHAHAHAHA... This time, you're mine! *Surrounds her fist with fire again and throws another punch at him while he's down*

Knuckles: *Rolls out of the way, causing her to punch through the ground and get her fist stuck*

Scorch: AUGH! Damn it!

Knuckles: *Stands up again and uppercuts her*

Scorch: Uhhhhhh! *Falls backwards and slides across the ground*

Wechnia: You're doing good, Knuckles! Just keep hanging in there! *Notices Robotnik sneaking up on him, trying to snatch the Elemental Chaos Ring* Don't EVEN think about it!

Robotnik: Very well then; I'll just turn you into a card! *Aims at Wechnia and presses the button*

Wechnia: *Jumps out of the way*

Robotnik: Curses! That was the last bit of film in the cartridge!

Knuckles: So, Scorch? Are you ready to give up yet?

Scorch: Not quite. *Stands up, surrounds herself with another fiery aura, and hovers into the air*

Knuckles: Huh? Now what?

Scorch: Try THIS on for size! Fire Spin… ATTACK!

After hovering into the air, Scorch started spinning around until she literally turned into a fire tornado, and started launching a volley of fire blasts everywhere, which Knuckles, Wechnia, and even Robotnik had to dodge. As her blasts came in contact with the walls, the volcano began to cave in.

Robotnik: Scorch, that's enough! You're making the volcano cave in! At this rate, you'll kill us all!

Scorch: *Stops* Oh, right. Sorry. Sometimes, I get a bit carried awa-

*A vibration occurs before she could finish the sentence*

Knuckles: I…think it's a bit too late now…

Wechnia:  That's for certain. We'd better escape before the eruption starts!

Knuckles: Right! *Runs off*

Wechnia: *Same*

Scorch: *Runs toward Robotnik, grabs him by the arm, and takes off at the speed of a comet, going right past Knuckles and Wechnia*

Knuckles: You know, I've completely forgotten how fast she was, but enough about that! Let's take that Chaos Ring and get out of here while we still can!

*They take off*


Espio: The vibration… It's getting worse!

Charmy: What do we do!?

Vector: For now, I say we forget about the Chaos Ring 'n' scram! We could always come back for it!

Splash: Yes, that sounds like a plan! *Notices Scorch and Robotnik speeding by* Hmm? Is that-

Scorch: *Zooms right past them*

Splash: That was Scorch… I'm almost certain of it!

Charmy: That was!? That was so fast, I could barely see it!

Vector: You're right, but now's not the time ta worry about that! We've gotta get outta here as soon as possible, or else we're TOAST!

*They run off*

Due to the intense battle that was taking place between Knuckles and Scorch, the volcano has begun to cave in! Will everyone be able to escape in time before they're caught in the volcanic eruption? If so, will they be able to prevent themselves from "falling" in Nack and Bean's trap on the way out? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Part 4

On the last chapter of Elements of Power, Knuckles and Wechnia encountered Scorch and Dr. Robotnik at the volcano, who were both bent on obtaining the Fire Element Chaos Ring for themselves in order to successfully bring EG-005 to life. Knuckles and Scorch then engaged one another in combat, picking up where they left off in the first episode. The two of them fought a fierce battle that went on for quite some time, until the volcano eventually started to cave in. Not wanting to get themselves caught in the magma flow and/or risk Iblis getting released from his imprisonment in the Fire Element Gem again, Knuckles, Wechnia, Scorch, and Robotnik had no choice to make their escape.

Meanwhile, Espio, Charmy, Vector, and Splash, who've been informed of the situation by Slush, were on their way to the volcano to begin their search for the Elemental Chaos Rings. Little did they know, however, that they were being followed by the two crooks, Nack/Fang and Bean, who were also on the hunt for the newly-created Elemental Chaos Rings. According to themselves, they intend to collect them all in order to sell them for a profit. The two of them also seem to have a surprise in store for the Chaotix when they exit the volcano.

Time is running out… With each second that goes by, the magma flow is rapidly approaching. Thanks to Scorch's super speed, she and Robotnik were able to make their escape. Espio, Charmy, Vector, and Splash weren't very far from the entrance, but Knuckles and Wechnia still have ways to go. Will the two echidnas be able to escape in time before they're reduced to volcanic ash? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

*Knuckles and Wechnia are running off, with some of the lava following them*

Knuckles: *Looks back* Oh, shoot! It's gaining on us! I think we'd better speed up!

Wechnia: Good idea, but first, maybe I should try doing something to slow it down a bit. *His gloves glow green* Chaos… FIST! *Pounds the ground*

After pounding the ground, Wechnia caused a slight tremor, causing lots of rocks and other debris to fall down and temporarily block the flow of the lava.

Knuckles: Good thinking, Wechnia! Now, why don't we go ahead and get out of here before it bursts through the rocks? *Runs off again*

Wechnia: I'm right behind you! *Runs off*

Taking advantage of the opportunity, the two echidnas took off again, with all due speed. Thanks to Wechnia's method, more time was brought for him and Knuckles to get further to the exit. Eventually, as Knuckles predicted, the lava ended up bursting through the rocks, and and proceeded to go in their direction.

Knuckles: We're almost…there! Just a little…further! *Notices Splash and the Chaotix* Hmm?

Vector: Knuckles, Wechnia! Whatta coincidence, bumpin' into you here!

Knuckles: It's nice to see you, too, but there isn't much time to talk right now! The lava…it's heading right this way!

Charmy: *Looks* Ahhhhh! He's right! There it is! *Points*

Splash: I think I have an idea!

Espio: What is it that you're planning to do?

Splash: Perhaps I could use my powers to push the lava back some more, in order to buy additional time for us to escape!

Wechnia: Good idea. Also, while you're busy holding it back with your hydro powers, I could use more debris to stop the lava flow, and keep it from following us we're exiting the volcano!

Vector: Sounds like a plan! I think I'll get in on this, too!

Knuckles: So will I.

Espio: Me, too.

Charmy: Me three!

Vector: A'ight, then let's get ta work!

Just as the lava was rapidly approaching the group of the heroes, Splash quickly used her hydro powers to push it back, while Knuckles and Wechnia used the Knuckle Slam and Chaos Fist techniques to create earthquakes and make more debris rain down and block the lava's path. Espio, Charmy, and Vector, on the other hand, began moving pieces of debris and rubble towards the lava's path that were already in the surrounding area.

Knuckles: Okay, I'd say that's about enough!

Vector: I agree! Let's go ahead 'n' scram while we still can!

*They take off until they eventually reach the exit and escape*

Knuckles: Whew… That was pretty close!

Vector: Yeah, I'll say! It looks like it's gonna be a while until we could go back in for the Elemental Chaos Ring, though…

Wechnia: Actually, I happen to have it right here. *Holds it up*

Vector: Ah, I see! I guess that DOES change a thing 'r' two now, doesn't it?

Espio: Indeed. So far, that's only one of them. We still have six more to find…

Knuckles: "Elemental" Chaos Rings, you said? That's exactly what Robotnik called them, too. Exactly what's going on, here, and how do you guys know about them?

*They explain the situation to Knuckles and Wechnia, just as they did to Tails, Heavy, and Bomb two parts ago*

Knuckles: W-WHAT!? Now THAT explains everything! No wonder he and Scorch were after them!

Wechnia: This also answers my question as to who this "other meddler" was that he spoke of earlier… It was Slush! Since Scorch was around at the time, that definitely explains why he cut himself off mid-speech…

Splash: Yeah. Robotnik won't be able to hide it from her forever, though. Maybe as soon as Scorch finds out, then she can finally stop associating with him!

Slush: *Through the walkie-talkie* Pffft. Knowing her, I highly… *Czzzzzt!* …Doubt that she will. *Czzzzt!* She seems to be… *Czzzzt!* …Completely obsessed… *Czzzzt!* …With "returning the favor" that she feels like she owes him. *Czzzzt!* Honestly, it's just… *Czzzzzt!* …As Amy, Ray, and that Boobowski girl said before… *Czzzzzt!* …It's almost… *Czzzzt!* …As if she's in love with the guy!

Knuckles: Now that you've brought that up again, Slush, you just may be right. At first, I thought it sounded kind of ridiculous when Amy said it, but then I remembered the way Scorch flipped out on us back at the Ice Cap Zone, when we were trying to tell her that Robotnik was using her.

Vector: Ah, yeah. I remember that, too.

Charmy: Ewwww… Gross!

Splash: My thoughts exactly, Charmy. I certainly hope that ISN'T the case…

Slush: Same here. I mean, honestly! What can she… *Czzzzt!* …Possibly SEE in him!?

Wechnia: Your guess is as good as mine, but let's not worry about that right now. Why don't we focus on trying to find the remaining six Elemental Chaos Rings?

Espio: Yes, we should. I don't think we could afford to waste anymore time, since Robotnik and his group are currently searching for them even now, as we speak. If we're to prevent EG-005 from coming to life, then we're going to need to track those Chaos Rings down before they do!

Vector: I'm definitely on board with what you're sayin'. Also, just in case EG-005 does end up comin' to life, then we might need all the help we could get. Say, by the way, has anybody seen Mighty, Tikal, Honey, or Seedra around anywhere?

Knuckles: No, I haven't seen them since we left the beach last week.

Charmy: Hee hee hee, I don't know where Seedra and Honey are, but knowing Mighty and Tikal, they're probably alone somewhere kissing, like Knuckles and Rouge were at the beach that one time! *Snickers*

*Everyone sweatdrops*

Knuckles: Oh, for crying out loud, Charmy! How many times are you gonna keep bringing that up!?

Charmy: It's too funny NOT to bring up!

Knuckles: If I were you, I wouldn't be so proud of all that spying you did, considering the fact that it was YOUR fault that we were in that entire mess with Mephiles!

Charmy: Was not!

Knuckles: Yes, it was!

Charmy: Nah uh! Dr. Nega's the one who brought him back, not me!

Knuckles: Maybe, but if it hadn't been for your antics last year, he would've STILL been in the Master Emerald, and we never would have had to deal with him again three other times!

Charmy: …

Splash: Now, now, just calm down, okay? Mephiles has already been taken care of, and at this point, there's no way we're ever going to see him again, so that's done and over with. There's no use in dwelling in the past… Can't we all just get along?

Knuckles: …

I guess you're right. In any case, why don't we go ahead and look for those Elemental Chaos Rings?

Vector: Sounds good to me. *Checks the radar* Accordin' to the detector, the rest of the Elemental Chaos Rings are-

Before Vector had the chance to finish his sentence, a bomb was suddenly tossed in front of them, with smoke pouring it of it, causing everyone's vision to get clouded.

*They cough*

Charmy: Ahhhh! I…can't see! *Coughs*

Bean: Heh heh heh! I'LL be taking THAT now! *Snatches the Fire Ring from Wechnia*

Wechnia: What the…!?

Nack: 'N' I'LL be takin' 'DIS! *Snatches the radar from Vector*

Knuckles: Those voices… It's Nack and Bean, isn't it!?

Nack: HAHAHAHA! 'Dat's right, chump! We'd love ta stay 'n' chat wit 'cha, but we've got cash ta make! Sayonara, suckas! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *Runs off*

Bean: Yeah, later, losers! *Follows Nack*

Splash: Ooh, why those scheming lowlifes! THEY'RE after the Elemental Chaos Rings, too!?

Knuckles: I'll bet Robotnik hired them!

Vector: It wouldn't surprise me if that were the case! Those morons're ALWAYS makin' deals wit' people that can't be trusted!

Slush: If Robotnik… *Czzzzt!* Truly IS the one… *Czzzzt!* …Who hired them, then you've got… *Czzzzt!* …To get that ring back… *Czzzzt!* …At all costs!

Vector: Sure, just leave it ta us! Like I always say… Once we start a job, we finish the job! That's our policy! We're Team Chaotix! C'mon, you guys! Let's geddem!

Slush: Thanks… I'm counting on you guys!

Wasting no more time, the heroes began their pursuit of Nack and Bean in an effort to reclaim the stolen Chaos Ring. As the Chaotix team chased after the two crooks, they had to dodge their bombs and bullets in the process.

Bean: Here, have another taste of Dynamite Power! *Tosses a few more bombs*

Espio: *Tosses shurikens at the bombs, making them explode in midair*

Nack: HAHAHA! Yeah, 'dat's right! You just go ahead 'n' keep on followin' us, chumps! If ya dare!

Knuckles: What's THAT supposed to mean!?

Bean: You'll find out shortly!

Eventually, as they kept running, they ended up coming across the area where the trap was set. Nack and Bean, not wanting to get caught in it themselves, decided to jump over the cleverly-disguised trench and began to make a break for the stolen police car that they used to get there. Splash and the Chaotix team, on the other hand, ended up falling right into it.

Everyone: UHHHHHH!

Charmy: Owwww! Not again!

Nack: HAHAHAHAHA! Looks like ya fell RIGHT into our trap, JUST as I knew ya would!

Bean: Heh heh heh! I'll bet you weren't expecting THAT now, were you?

Nack: Now's 'da chance ta make our getaway in 'da car we stole from 'da cops earlia!

Espio: Resorting to stealing police cars now?

Nack: We ain't have a choice, since 'dat goilfriend o' yours decided ta blow up 'da Marvelous Queen last week! Speakin' of a which, she still owes me money for 'da repair costs 'n' whatnot!

Espio: …Honey is NOT my girlfriend!

Charmy: Suuuuurrreee she isn't! *Snickers*

Knuckles: Charmy, do us all a favor and shut up!

Nack: HAHAHAHAHA! We'd love ta stay 'n' chat wit' 'cha, but like I was sayin' before, we've got cash ta make! C'mon, Bean! Let's bus' outta 'dis joint!

Bean: Right!

*They run off*

Once again, the Chaotix had Tails' emerald detector stolen from them, as well as the Elemental Chaos Ring that they've worked so hard to get. To make matters worse, they have fallen into yet another trap, and Nack and Bean are on the verge of making their getaway. Will our heroes be able to climb their way out of the trench before the two crooks successfully make their escape? If not, will anyone else show up in the nick of time to block their path? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Part 5

Last time, on The Goddess of Destruction, Knuckles and Wechnia, after obtaining the Fire Element Chaos Ring, began fleeing from the erupting volcano shortly after Scorch and Robotnik did. On their way out, they ended up running into their comrades, Espio, Charmy, Vector, and Splash, who also came to look for the Chaos Ring. In order to stop the lava flow and by themselves the time they needed to escape, Splash used her hydro powers to push the lava back, while everyone else used the debris caused by the earthquakes to block the magma and prevent it from following them during their escape.

After they managed to successfully flee from the volcano, the Chaotix Detective Agency and Splash explained the situation to Knuckles and Wechnia, and the two of them agreed to take part in tracking down the rest of the Elemental Chaos Rings in order to stop Dr. Robotnik's deadly new creation, EG-005 from coming to life, as well as rescuing Slush from her captivity within another dimension. Before they had the chance to begin their search for the other six, Nack the Weasel/Fang the Sniper and Bean the Dynamite stole both the Fire Ring and the emerald detector right from under their nose. Naturally, the heroes began chasing the two criminals down, but unfortunately for them, they ended up falling into a trap.

Will Knuckles and company be able to climb out of the trench in time before the thieves make their escape? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Bean: *Stops*

Nack: Huh? Whadda ya stoppin' for?

Bean: I just thought I'd give them a little going away present before we left. *Takes out a bomb, lights the fuse, and walks over to the hole*

Nack: HAHAHAHA! Yeah, yeah! Go for it!

Bean:  DYNAMITE POWER! *Drops it in there*

After dropping the bomb in the hole, Splash quickly fired a hydro blast from the palm of her hand and reflected the bomb back to Bean, causing it to blow up right in his face.

Bean: UHHHH! *Gets blackened up*

Nack: Here, lemme give it a shot! *Walks over to the hole, takes out his gun, and aims it down at them*


Nack: HAHAHAHA! Reflect 'DIS one if ya can, chumps! *Starts firing at them*

*They start dodging*

Nack: Hold still already, so I could blow ya freakin' brains out!

Vector: What? Are you freakin' serious? Do you REALLY expect us to just sit here 'n' let you shoot us? You can't be THAT much've a moron, can ya?

Nack: Ah, shaddap! *Aims his gun and continues firing at them*

*They continue dodging the blasts, and Nack eventually runs out of ammo*

Nack: *Pulls the trigger again, and there's nothing but a clicking sound* Ah, crap! I ran outta ammo again! Why does it ALWAYS gotta happen durin' crucial times like 'dis!?

Bean: I don't know, but you could always reload it again. Since we've already gotten the things we're after, why don't we go ahead and split?

Nack: Good idea.

Just as they were getting ready to run back to their stolen police car, machine gun projectiles were suddenly fired in front of the two crooks, causing them to come to a screeching halt.

Nack: What 'da…!?

Bean: Okay, who's there!? Go ahead and show yourself!

*Shadow, Rouge, Omega, Metal Sonic, and Squash drop down in front of them*

Rouge: Well, well… What have we here? Fang and Bean... We weren't expecting to find the two of you here. Up to no good again, as usual?

Nack: Whetha we are 'r not, it ain't none o' ya business! Now move outta 'da way, befo'ah I hafta bussa cap 'n all o' yas!

Shadow: First of all, your threats don't intimidate us one bit. Secondly, you're bluffing. Not too long ago, I heard you say that your gun was out of ammo.

Nack: CRAP!

Squash: AH-HA-AH-AH-AH-AH! It's just as the saying goes… The weakest dog ALWAYS barks the loudest!

Bean: …

That has GOT to be the weirdest, creepiest laugh I've EVER heard.[/colo]

Squash: You don't know HOW tired I am of hearing that.

*All of the Chaotix climb their way out of the trench (minus Charmy and Splash, who hovered out of it)*

Vector: Looks like the jig's up! The two o' you ain't got nowhere else to run now!

Espio: So just quietly hand over both the detector and the Chaos Ring you've taken from us, nice and easy…

Knuckles: Yes, before we have to take them back by force! *Cracks his knuckles*

Nack: Not so fast, chumps! I might've run outta ammo, but 'dat gun ain't 'da only weapon I've got! *Reaches into his holster and takes out a knife* Come any closah, 'n' I'll slice ya 'n' dice ya!

Bean: Plus, I've still got bombs to use and plenty of matches! I'd recommend getting out of the way, unless you'd like a taste of Dynamite Power!

Nack: Yeah, last warnin'!

Shadow: Again, your threats mean nothing to us.

Squash: Yes, especially since we're being threatened by a couple of weaklings.

Nack: You're gonna regret openin' ya yap, ya dumb broad! Leave 'dis one ta me, Bean! I can take 'er on my own.

Bean: Alright, fine. Go ahead.

With his knife in hand, Nack began charging toward Squash, rapidly swinging it at her. However, the Stone Goddess was able to dodge his attacks with little to no effort.

Squash: You're too slow! AH-HA-AH-AH-AH-AH! Is that all you've got? You're pathetic!

Nack: Yeah!? I wouldn't get so cocky if I was you, sistah! *Swings it again and ends up slashing her across the face*

Squash: Ahhhhh! *Holds the side of her face as it bleeds a little*

Splash: Squash!

Squash: Don't worry, I'm okay… That was nothing.

Nack: HAHAHAHA! Howda ya like 'dem apples!? Ya got lucky 'dat time, but 'dis time, Ah'mma slice ya freakin' head off!

Squash: Oh, I would LOVE to see you try!

Nack: HAHAHAHAHA! Dodge 'DIS one if ya can!

In an attempt to slice Squash's head off, Nack decided to swing the knife sideways, but Squash quickly ducked underneath it and punched him in the stomach, knocking the wind out of him.

Nack: GAAAAH! *Kneels down and holds his stomach, dropping both his knife and the emerald detector in the process*

Squash: AH-HA-AH-AH-AH-AH! Oh, I'm sorry, what were you saying? Something about slicing my head off, right?

Nack: Ghhh…! You're… You're gonna pay fa 'dat, ya li'l wench! *Reaches for the knife again*

Squash: *Steps on his hand before he has the chance*


Squash: *Grabs him up by the neck* WHAT did you call me!?

Nack: Did I studdah!? *Spits in her face*

Squash: GRRRR! *Proceeds to beat the crap out of him, using her other arm*


Charmy: …

Wait, what did he call her? A "wrench"? I don't get it. Why's she so mad about that? I mean, it's not like that made any sense to call her!

Vector: He said "wench", Charmy, not "wrench". They're two different words, 'n' you're too young ta know what the otha one means.

Charmy: No, I'm not! I'm seventeen, remember? Or, at least I WOULD be if something didn't go wrong with that machine at the Newtrogic High Zone!

Vector: Oh, right. I forgot about that.

Squash: *Angrily slams Nack onto the ground*


Squash: THAT outta teach you!

Nack: *Bruised up with two black eyes, a bloody nose, and stars going around his head* Did anybody…get 'da numbah…o' 'dat bus…?

Rouge: Fang, Fang, Fang. When will you ever learn? *Picks up the emerald detector and tosses it to Knuckles*

Knuckles: *Catches it* Now, Bean, you're next! You might as well not even TRY getting away, because we've got you surrounded!

Bean: …

Shadow: Yes, and your escape path has been blocked. Even if you were able to somehow get past us and drive off, I could easily slow the car down via Chaos Control.

Bean: …

Rouge: So, what's it going to be?

Charmy: Yeah, what's it going to BEE? *Snickers*

*Everyone (except for Splash) glares at him*

Charmy: Hee hee, sorry! I HAD to do it, I just HAD to!

Nack: *Slowly gets back up and whispers to Bean* Pssst! Yo, I've gotta idea!

Bean: *Whispers back* Alright, what is it?

Nack: You've still got some bombs on ya, right? Well, why don't 'cha use one've 'em ta cloud 'da area wit' a buncha smoke 'n' whatnot? 'Dat way, while 'dese chumps're caught off guard, we'll be able ta shove 'em outta 'da way, get 'n da car, 'n' make our escape! It's eitha 'dat, or you could get 'em wit' knockout gas!

Bean: Sounds like a plan, but you might want to do something about Shadow's emerald, so he can't use Chaos Control.

Nack: Good idea! A'ight, let's do it!

Rouge: …You DO realize I heard everything you said just now, don't you?

Nack: Uh, hoid WHAT? I dunno whatcha talkin' about!

Rouge: There's no use in trying to deny it, you know. I'm a bat, and bats have ultrasensitive hearing.

Nack: CRAP!

Vector: Whadda ya say we just go ahead 'n' jump 'em, like we did last time? *Cracks his knuckles*

Knuckles: I've got no problem with that! *Cracks his, too*

Nack: Bring it on! We'll take on ALL o' yas! *Reaches for his knife*

Bean: *Gets ready to toss one of his bomb* Dynamite Pow-

Before Nack and Bean had the chance to use their weapons, both groups stampeded towards them and ganged up on them, leaving the two crooks on the ground, beaten up. Shortly afterwards, they ended up getting tossed into the very trench that they dug up.

Vector: Before pickin' a fight… BEDDAH know who you're up against!

Charmy: Yeah! Better know who you're up against! *Sticks his tongue at them*

Nack: Ghhh…! 'Dis ain't ovah yet, y'hear!? 'Da next time we meet, my gun's gonna be loaded, 'n' when it is, ya beddah say ya prayahs, 'cause Ah'mma pump ya guts full o' lead!

Bean: Yeah, it's either that, or I'll blow you to smithereens!

Wechnia: Whatever. The two of you are nothing but talk. *Picks up the Elemental Chaos Ring*

Shadow: I'll tell you just as I told Mephiles a week ago… There isn't going to BE a "next time" for the two of you.

Nack: Wayda minute, whadda ya sayin'!?

Bean: Let me guess… You're planning on calling the cops on us, right?

Rouge: You guessed it! *Takes out a cellphone and dials 9-1-1* Hello, police? I'm just calling to let you know that we've found the two criminals that you've been looking for all this time. Hmm? Their names, you said? It's Fang the Sniper and Bean the Dynamite. We've also found the police car they've stolen recently. What's that? You're going to be here in about ten to fifteen minutes? Okay, thank you, bye bye. *Hangs up*

Nack: WHAT!? YOU ratted us out to 'da cops!? Are you kiddin' me!? You're a freakin' hypocrite, ya know 'dat!? You're a jewel thief, yaself, 'n' yet YOU have 'da noive ta be squealin' to 'da cops!?

Knuckles: …

I'd hate to say it, but he's got a point there, Rouge…

Rouge: Oh, come on… Whose side are you on, anyway? Does it not count that I've taken part in saving this world several times?

Knuckles: Um…

Rouge: And besides… *Walks towards Knuckles, gently rubbing his face* I thought you and I had something special?

Knuckles: *Blushes* Uh, well…

Charmy: *Snickers*

Bean: I don't know about you, Nack, but I'm not sticking around until the cops get here! *Starts climbing up*

Nack: You're definitely speakin' my language! Let's bus' outta 'dis joint! *Starts climbing, too*

Squash: *Uses her super strength to lift the police car, and places it over the hole to block their escape*

Nack: AH, DAMN IT!

Vector: Sucks to be you!

Fifteen minutes later…

Cop #1: You two are under arrest. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can, and WILL be used against you in the court of law.

*Handcuffs get slapped across their wrists, with their arms tied behind their backs*

Nack: 'Ey, wayda minute! Ain't 'cha gonna arrest HER, too!? *Gestures to Rouge*

Cop #1: …What for?

Bean: Oh, gee, I dunno… Maybe it's because she's a JEWEL THIEF!?

Rouge: HAHAHAHAHA! Oh, wow! I have NO idea what they're babbling about! THEY'RE the criminals, not me!

Nack: 'Ey, you guys! Didn't she preddy much ADMIT ta bein' a jewel thief about fifteen minutes ago!?

No, wait… She didn't exactly "admit" it, but she definitely wasn't denyin' it when I brought it up! Am I right!?

Knuckles: Umm, nope.

Nack: Whadda ya talkin' about!? Even YOU agreed wit' me earlia!

Knuckles: I don't know what you're talking about. Did you guys hear anything?

Vector: Nope.

Charmy: Me neither!

Shadow: I heard no such thing.

Omega: Negative.

*Everyone else says something similar*

Bean: WHAT!? Oh, come ON! That's BOGUS!

]Nack: Yeah! You guys're nutin' but a buncha stinkin' liars, ya know 'dat!?

Cop #1: Sorry, fellas. For all we know, your claims may very well be true, but there's just no evidence to support it. That's just how the legal system works.

Nack: Yeah!? Well, 'da legal system SUCKS!

Cop #1: But there is, however, more than enough evidence to put the two of YOU away, including your two recent acts of car theft. Take 'em away, boys!

*The Chaotix and company laugh at Nack and Bean as they get dragged to the back of the police car*


*They continue laughing*


Bean: Oh, will you shut up already!? Didn't you hear what the guy said!? You're only giving them more things to use against us!

*The heroes mockingly wave goodbye to them as the cars drive off*

Vector: Man, now 'DAT was PRICELESS!

Espio: Indeed. It's too bad Honey had to miss out on this. I'm sure she would have loved to see it.

Vector: Don't worry, I've got it all on tape, so she still could!

Meanwhile, in the Mystic Ruins jungle…

Robotnik: Well, that certainly didn't go as planned now, did it? The first Elemental Chaos Ring was RIGHT within our grasp, but thanks to those two blasted echidnas, we were unable to obtain it! ARGH! CURSE THEM!

Scorch: Now, now… There's no need to worry, Dr. Robotnik. We could always get it back from them. And besides, I'm sure that Shock, Storm, and Metal Sonic 3.0 have each found at least one by now.

Robotnik: Maybe you're right, but still… Now that Knuckles and Wechnia are aware of the Elemental Chaos Rings, things have definitely taken a turn for the worst! They're most likely going to tell the REST of those Chaotix fools about them, and the word will eventually spread to Sonic and the rest of HIS allies as well! I can't afford to let them interfere with my plans this time! Whatever it takes, I WILL complete Project EG-005, one way or another!

Scorch: I hear you, Doctor. So, what does your radar say about the next one?

Robotnik: *Activates the detector in his glasses* Oh ho! It appears that one of them has landed at the Ice Cap Zone!

Scorch: Ah, I see! Why don't you leave that one to me? By splitting up, I'm sure that we could retrieve all seven of them much faster that way.

Robotnik: Very well. For the time being, I'm going to head back to the base to check on EG-005. I'll resume my search in another area right afterwards. I'm counting on you, Scorch! *Takes off in his Egg –O- Matic*

Scorch: The Ice Cap Zone, huh? How convenient. While I'm there, not only will I get that Elemental Chaos Ring, but I could also ask that polar bear, whose name I forget, about Slush's whereabouts! *Takes off*

Seedra: *Was nearby (unnoticed) and overheard everything* "Eee-Jee-Double-Oh-Five"? So, Robotnik's creating a fifth EG Experiment, huh? I'm not sure what these "Elemental Chaos Rings" are, but seeing how desperate Robotnik is to get ahold of them, I think it's safe to assume that they're pretty powerful, much like the Chaos Emeralds. This "EG-005" that he speaks of… If she's being brought to life with something as powerful as those, then I definitely can't see anything good coming out of it! I have to put a stop to this at all costs! Hopefully, I'll be able to beat Scorch to the punch… *Makes vines extend from her back and starts swinging from tree to tree*

Thanks to the efforts of the Chaotix and company, the two notorious criminals, Nack the Weasel/Fang the Sniper and Bean the Dynamite were finally brought to justice, but there's no cause to celebrate just yet. Dr. Robotnik is still on the hunt for the Elemental Chaos Rings, and is determined to bring his deadly new creation, EG-005 to life. Luckily, Seedra happened to be in the area and overheard his and Scorch's conversation. Will she be able to beat her older sister to the second Elemental Chaos Ring? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Part 6

Last time, on Elements of Power, the two criminals, Nack the Weasel/Fang the Sniper and Bean the Dynamite had stolen both the Fire Element Chaos Ring and Tails' emerald detector right from under the Chaotix's noses and had them lured into a trap. Just when the two of them were on the verge of making their getaway, Shadow the Hedgehog, Rouge the Bat, E-123 Omega, Metal Sonic, and EG-001/Squash, the Goddess of Stone showed up in the nick of time to block Nack and Bean's escape. With his gun out of ammo, Nack had to resort to using his knife as a backup weapon, and got into a small skirmish with Squash, but ended up getting defeated in the end.

Cornered by both sides (Knuckles and company, as well as Shadow and his group), Bean was left scratching his head, wondering how he was going to get himself out of yet another jam. Just then, the tattered and beaten-down Nack suggested clouding everyone's vision with a smoke bomb and/or using knockout gas, but thanks to Rouge's ultrasensitive hearing, their escape plan was stopped before it could be put into effect. Unable to escape, Nack and Bean decided to try facing everyone head-on, but in the end, they ended up getting themselves beaten and overpowered by the heroes. Shortly after their defeat, Rouge called the police, and before the two of them could make their getaway in time before they arrived, Squash used her super strength to cover the trench and prevent them from getting away. Fifteen minutes later, the police arrived and arrested the duo, effectively bringing the two crooks to justice.

Elsewhere, at the Mystic Ruins jungle, Dr. Robotnik and Scorch have managed to detect the second Elemental Chaos Ring at the Ice Cap Zone. Scorch agreed to go over there by herself; not only for the purpose of obtaining the Chaos Ring, but to ask Bark the Polar Bear if he knew anything about the whereabouts of Slush, who she hasn't seen at all for the past week. After she and Robotnik split up for the time being, EG-002/Seedra, the Goddess of Leaves, who happened to be in the area at the time, overheard their conversation, and has decided to take part in the ring-hunt, as well, in order to prevent EG-005 from being brought to life. Will Seedra be able to find the next Elemental Chaos Ring before Scorch does? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Meanwhile, at Tails' Workshop…

Heavy: *Watching a news report about Nack and Bean getting arrested* Well, it's about TIME! It took exactly HOW long for them to finally catch those two?

Bomb: A lot longer than any of us could count, let's just put it that way.

Tails: Yeah. With all the crimes they've committed, I knew it was only a matter of time until it happened, though.

Heavy: Well, good riddance. That's all I have to say about that. Nack, in particular, has always grated on my nerves.

Cubot: Err… But 'cher a robot, though…  Ain't 'cha, pard? Last time I checked, ya didn't have any nerves. Just a buncha circuits, wires, 'n stuff.

Heavy: I know that, you idiot. It's just a figure of speech.

Cubot: Well, ya don't hafta be so rude 'bout it, y'know.

Orbot: Decided to switch your voicebox back to "cowboy" mode, I see?

Cubot: Well, yah. It's been stuck on it fer so long, 'dat Ah've gotten purdy used to it.

Tails: Robotnik programmed you with a lot of different voices, right? I've been wondering… What does your real one sound like?

Cubot: Err, well…

Orbot: You don't want to know. Trust me.

Tails: Really? Alright then.

Heavy: Yes, I think I'll take your word for it, as well.

Bomb: Same.

*Suddenly, a knock is heard at the door*

Tails: Come in!

Seedra: *Enters* Hi, everyone!

Tails: Ah, hey, Seedra!

Bomb: Hey.

Orbot: Hello.

Cubot: Howdy!

Heavy: Yeah, hi.

Tails: It's nice to see you. So, what brings you over here?

Seedra: Well, I was wondering if you'd let me borrow your emerald detector. I need it for something important…

Tails: Oh, let me guess. This is about the Elemental Chaos Rings, right?

Seedra: Yes, actually. Not too long ago, I overheard Robotnik say that one of them landed at the Ice Cap Zone, and then Scorch took off to find it right afterwards. Luckily, he didn't tell her exactly where it was, but by using your detector, I should be able to find it before she does!

Tails: I'd like to lend it to you, Seedra, but I've already given it to the Chaotix and Splash when they were here earlier.

Seedra: Really? Where are they now?

Tails: I remember them saying that they were heading towards Lava Reef, so chances are, they've already found the Chaos Ring that was over there, and are probably heading for the Ice Cap Zone, themselves.

Seedra: You just may be right. Thanks, I'll see you later, bye-bye now! *Rushes out the door*

Orbot: Wow, she's sure in a hurry, isn't she?

Tails: Yeah. Hopefully, she and the Chaotix will be able to get those Chaos Rings before Robotnik does. In the meantime, I'm going to continue working on Gamma's adjustments. You guys can help me out, if you want.

Heavy: Sure, why not? I've got nothing better to do.

Bomb: Neither do I. After all, we're robo-mechanics. Fixing things is what we do best!


Seedra: So, they're all the way at the volcano, huh? If I had the time, I'd definitely join them, but since I had to make that stop at Tails' Workshop, Scorch is already a few steps ahead of me. By the time I go over there and back, she'll probably have already found that Chaos Ring! Robotnik didn't tell her its specific location, but still.

Come to think of it, exactly where IS the Ice Cap Zone, anyway? Oh, dang it! I should've asked Tails and the others about it while I had the chance! Ah, well… I shouldn't be too far. Wherever it is, I'll find it sooner or later. If possible, I'd like to avoid a direct confrontation with Scorch, since my powers are no match for hers, but if there truly isn't a way to avoid it, then I guess I'll have to find another method of taking her down! *Speeds up*

As Seedra continued sprinting through the Mystic Ruins, she eventually came across what appeared to be a cave entrance of some sort. Figuring that it must lead to the Ice Cap Zone, she decided to go through it, but it instead turned out to be a Chao Garden entrance.

Seedra: Huh? *Looks around* I guess this isn't the Ice Cap Zone after all. *Notices Chaos* Oh, hello. My name is Seedra. Who might you be?

Chaos: *Insert bubbling noises here*

Seedra: I'm sorry, but… I don't think I understand you.

???: He says his name is Chaos.

Seedra: Hmm? *Looks towards the other entrance* Oh, hey, Tikal. You, too, Mighty, Honey, and…Ray, right?

Ray: Yeah, that's my name, don't wear it out.

Seedra: Ah, okay. *Faces Chaos again* Well, it's a pleasure to meet you, Chaos. *Politely bows*

Wait a minute, Tikal… You could actually understand him?

Tikal: Why, yes, I could.

Mighty: We're just as surprised about it as you are, Seedra. Anyway, how are you doing?

Seedra: Pretty good for the most part. Say, would you guys happen to know where the Ice Cap Zone is?

Mighty: Yeah, there's an entrance to it in a cave that's not too far from here. All you have to do is take a right, and you won't be able to miss it. Why do you ask?

Seedra: Well, you see… *Explains*

Everyone: WHAAAAAAT!?

Mighty: So, in order for Robotnik to bring some new creation of his to life, he's trying to get these "Elemental Chaos Rings", and in order to stop him, you're trying to get them before he does, right?

Seedra: That's right.

Ray: Whoa, that doesn't sound good… If this Eee-Jee-Whatever is getting powered by the Chaos Rings like Metal Sonic 3.0 was last week, she could become the biggest threat since Solaris!

Tikal: I couldn't agree more! I think we should start looking for them as soon as possible!

Honey: You said that Scorch was already looking for the one at the Ice Cap Zone, right? How do you know for sure that she hasn't found it yet?

Seedra: That's because Robotnik only told her the general area where it was located, rather than where it was specifically. Plus, I've noticed that she seems to be occupied with something else. Before she took off, I heard her say that Slush has gone missing somehow.

Ray: Come to think of it, I don't believe I've seen her around lately, either…

Mighty: I hope nothing's happened to her…

Tikal: Same here. Wherever she is, I hope she's okay.

Seedra: I hope so, too. In any case, why don't we start looking for the rings?

Mighty: Yeah, we should. No matter what, we can't let Robotnik get his hands on them!

Tikal: Are you coming with us, Chaos?

Chaos: *Bubbling noises*

Ray: What's he saying now?

Tikal: He says that he would like to, but he can't leave this Chao Garden unprotected.

Mighty: Alright, that's understandable. Especially since Robotnik tried to blow it up last month. In any case, though, we'll see you later, Chaos.

Just as the five of them were leaving the Chao Garden, bound for the Ice Cap Zone entrance, they ended up running into the Chaotix and company, who just returned from the volcano.

Charmy: Hey, look, you guys! It's them!

Vector: Well, I'll be! We were just talkin' about you guys not too long ago!

Mighty: You were?

Espio: Yes, we were saying that we could use your help in finding the remaining six Elemental Chaos Rings. I'll take it that you haven't heard about them yet?

Mighty: Yeah, we have. We heard about them from Seedra a little while ago.

Charmy: Hey, Espio, did you notice that Honey's here? *Snickers*

Espio: Yes, I did. What's your point?

Charmy: Ohhhh, you know! *Snickers again*

Honey: D-Don't start that again, okay? I told you before, we're just friends!

Charmy: Yeah, suuuuure! Silver and Blaze said the same thing, though, and looked what happened with them. *Snickers again*

*Everyone sweatdrops*

Vector: Charmy, will ya just give it a rest already?

Charmy: Okay, okay. By the way, did you guys hear the news yet, about Nack and Bean getting arrested?

Ray: Whoa, seriously!?

Charmy: Hee hee, yep! It was really, REALLY funny, too!

Honey: HAHAHAHAHAHA! Serves them right!

Mighty: Yeah, they definitely deserved it.

Ray: THAT'S for sure.

Honey: Oh, wow! Hearing this bit of news has definitely made my day! I just wish I had been around to see it!

Vector: Like I was tellin' Espio earlier, I've got it all on tape, so ya still could. I'd NEVAH pass up an opportunity to record somethin' as hilarious as that!

Honey: Ah, okay! Cool! I'm definitely looking forward to watching it as soon as I get the chance!

Omega: Ahem! Should we not be turning our focus over to the current objective? We still have Elemental Chaos Rings to retrieve!

Shadow: Thank you, Omega. You beat me to it.

Rouge: Yeah. I won't deny the fact that I found their arrest quite amusing, but we could always talk about that again later.

Ray: Right. One more thing before we do… Does anyone know what happened to Slush?

Seedra: Yeah, because I heard Scorch say that she's gone missing somehow.

Slush: *Through Vector's walkie-talkie* Oh, I'd be MORE than happy… *Czzzzzt!* …To answer THAT for you. You know… *Czzzzt!* …How I've been posing as Robotnik's ally to… *Czzzzt!* …Give you all first-hand information about… *Czzzzt!* …All his plans, right? *Czzzzt!* Well, he's… *Czzzzzt!* …Discovered my secret, and to make sure… *Czzzzt!* …That I wouldn't be around to tell anyone about EG-005… *Czzzzt!* …Metal Sonic 3.0 held me down… *Czzzzzt!* …With telekinesis, while Robotnik used... *Czzzzt!* Dr. Nega's camera on me!

Tikal: Oh, my goodness! That's terrible!

Omega: How is it that you are able to transmit this message to us if you've been transformed into a card? Illogical!

Slush: That's because… *Czzzzzt!* …There's another dimension that… *Czzzzt!* …Lies behind these cards. I'm not sure… *Czzzzt!* …If I could explain it any better than that.

Splash: It must be terrible what you're going through in there, but don't worry! Like I said before, we're going to save you as soon as possible!

Slush: I…appreciate the concern, big sis… *Czzzzzt!* …But it's not all that bad in here. Well… *Czzzzt!* …At least it's better than being locked in a room… *Czzzzzt!* …With the temperature set to a hundred degrees. This is… *Czzzzt!* ...Nothing compared to that. Plus, I've been getting… *Czzzzzt!* …Well-fed. Robotnik has just… *Czzzzt!* …Transported some food to this dimension recently. It was clearly… *Czzzzt!* …Scorch's cooking, though.

Splash: That's good to hear.

Charmy: Wait, Scorch could cook? I never knew that!

Slush: Yeah, it's one of her hobbies, but… *Czzzzt!* …Enough about that for now. *Czzzzt!* Robotnik, Metal Sonic 3.0, Scorch, Shock, and Storm have all… *Czzzzt!* …Split up in separate areas to look… *Czzzzzt!* …For the Elemental Chaos Rings. Perhaps you guys… *Czzzzt!* …Can do the same? It'll definitely… *Czzzzzt!* …Speed up your search a little, don't you think?

Knuckles: I don't see why not. After all, it worked a year ago, while we were trying to find the Chaos Emeralds before Mephiles did.

Ray: Yeah, only to have them taken from us at the last second…

Vector: True, but that ain't gonna happen this time. Anyway, how should we do this? Split into groups o' two again? *Looks around and counts* There's sixteen of us, so it should work.

Knuckles: Yeah, let's do that, but first, let's check the radar so we'll know where to go. *Turns on the detector* Let's see… Since we already have one in our hands, that means there's six of them remaining. One of them is at the Ice Cap Zone, there's another one in Station Square, probably at Casinopolis somewhere… The next one is at the Hydrocity City Zone, there's another at Windy Valley… After that, there's Mushroom Hill, and Sandopolis.

Metal Sonic: Before we go, I would just like to make one thing clear. I couldn't care less about this "EG-005". I'm only joining this hunt, so that I could settle my score with that poor, pathetic excuse for an imitation, Metal Sonic Version Three-Point Zero.

Squash: I'm not worried about EG-005, either. AH-HA-AH-AH-AH-AH! For all we know, she may very well be overhyped, and turn out to be weakling! I mean, honestly! Ivo already did it right the first time when he created ME, so there are NO improvements to be made!

Everyone: …

Slush: …Wow, just wow. Can you… *Czzzzzt!* …Possibly be anymore arrogant? Not even… *Czzzzt!* …Scorch is THIS self-centered, and that's saying a lot.

Squash: Whatever.

Omega: Also, have you taken the Chaos Rings into account? According to my scanners, they have powers that are akin to that of both the Chaos and Sol Emeralds. Do you remember how the Egg Galaxia was impervious to your attacks after absorbing their power? Well, history is bound to repeat itself yet again, with EG-005.

Squash: Fine, then. I'll join this stupid hunt, too, but only because I don't have anything better to do.

*Soon, they decide the groups*

Knuckles: Okay, so Rouge and I will look for the Chaos Ring at Sandopolis.

Tikal: Mighty and I will look for the one at the Hydrocity Zone.

Espio: Honey and I will track down the Chaos Ring at Mushroom Hill.

Charmy: *Snickers* Yeah, Knuckles, Mighty, and Espio WOULD be the ones to team up with their GIRLFRIENDS! *Snickers again*

Vector: *Bashes Charmy upside the head*

Charmy: Owww! *Holds the back of his head*

Vector: Anyway, Wechnia 'n' I are gonna find the Elemental Chaos Ring at Windy Valley.

Splash: Seedra, you don't mind if Charmy and I take the Ice Cap Zone, do you?

Seedra: Not at all. I think you would stand a better chance against Scorch than I would. Plus, I would have hated being in the freezing-cold climate, and I don't have a coat or anything to wear. So, Ray and I will just go to Casinopolis instead.

Shadow: Since the other Elemental Chaos Ring location slots have been filled, Omega, Squash, Metal Sonic, and myself will infiltrate the doctor's base in hopes of destroying EG-005 before she could reach completion, as well as rescuing Slush from her captivity.

Vector: Alright, then it's settled! C'mon, everyone! Let's get ta work!

*They run off in separate directions*

With that said, the groups have finally been decided. Now that more heroes have gotten involved in the search for the remaining six Elemental Chaos Rings, things have taken a turn for the better…or have they? Even after having split into groups of two, will they be able to find them in time before Robotnik and others do? Will Shadow, Squash, Metal Sonic, and Omega be able to successfully stop EG-005's development from getting any further, as well as rescuing Slush? Speaking of a which, will Scorch ever learn the truth about her disappearance? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Part 7

When we last left off, the Leaf Goddess, Seedra overheard an important conversation between Dr. Robotnik and Scorch, concerning EG-005, as well as the whereabouts of the next Elemental Chaos Ring, which happened to be at the Ice Cap Zone. Shortly after the two of them went their separate ways for the time being, Seedra began following Scorch, but decided to make a stop at Tails' Workshop in order to borrow his emerald detector. However, she was unable to, since he had already given it to the Chaotix team. Tails did, however, tell Seedra where she could find them, and then she quickly took off.

Realizing that it would probably take a while for her to get to the volcano and back, Seedra decided to head to the Ice Cap Zone instead, for unfortunately for her, she didn't know where it was. During her search, she ended up stumbling upon a Chao Garden that was located within the Mystic Ruins. While was there, she found Mighty the Armadillo, Ray the Flying Squirrel, Honey the Cat, Tikal, and Chaos. After explaining the situation to them, all of them (except for Chaos, who didn't want to leave the Chao Garden unprotected) decided to join Seedra in the hunt for the Elemental Chaos Rings.

After leaving the Chao Garden, they bumped into the Chaotix and company, who just came back from Lava Reef after their skirmish with Nack the Weasel/Fang the Sniper and Bean the Dynamite. After Knuckles used Tails' emerald detector to track down the remaining six Chaos Rings, everyone agreed to split up into groups of two in order to speed up the searching process. However, since all of the location slots for the rings have been filled, Shadow, Squash, Omega, and Metal Sonic agreed to infiltrate Robotnik's base in order to destroy EG-005 before she has the chance to reach completion, as well as freeing Slush from her captivity within another dimension.

With that said, the search for the remaining rings is on! Which side will claim them first? The Chaotix and company or Robotnik and his associates? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Meanwhile, at Station Square…

*The train stops, and then Ray and Seedra get off*

Ray: Alright, so it looks like we're here. Now we could start looking for that Elemental Chaos Ring, wherever it is.

Seedra: Yeah. According to Knuckles, it most likely landed at some place called "Casinopolis". Would you happen to know where that is, by any chance?

Ray: Well, I've heard of the place before, but have never actually been there myself. Although, I'm sure if we keep looking around the city, we'll eventually find it.

Seedra: Alright, then let's start looking right away. After all, Shock, Storm, and/or Metal Sonic 3.0 are probably over there right now, looking for the Chaos Ring themselves. Whatever it takes, we have to find it before they do!

Ray: Right!

Wasting no more time, the two of them quickly jetted out of the train station and started sprinting through the city, in search of Casinopolis, where the next Elemental Chaos Ring was said to be. Meanwhile, somewhere nearby...

Cream: Hmm? *Notices them* Hey, isn't that Mr. Ray and Miss Seedra over there? *Points*

Amy: *Looks* Yeah, you're right! That's them, but…doesn't it strike anybody else as odd that the two of them are here by themselves like this?

Big: Uhhh, what do you mean?

Amy: I'm saying that there's a chance that the two of them are probably on a date, of course!

Cream: Really? Are you sure?

Amy: I'm positive. Like I always say, I happen to have a sixth sense about this sort of thing, and it's never steered me wrong before!

Big: If you say so…

Amy: Aww, it's so romantic! *Waves to them* Yoo-hoo!

*Ray and Seedra come to a stop*

Cream: Hello! *Waves to them, too*

Cheese & Chocola: Chao, Chao! *They wave, too*

Ray: Oh, uh… Hi!

Big: Hey. How're ya doin'?

Seedra: Oh, we're fine. And yourselves?

Amy: We're doing pretty well. Say… You two wouldn't happen to be on a date now, would you?

Ray: …

W-WHAT!? N-No, not at all!

Seedra: Yes, exactly!

Amy: Are you sure? If you are, then it's nothing to be ashamed of, you know. Aww, I think you two are SO cute together!

Ray: R-Really, Amy! You've got the wrong idea! There's absolutely NOTHING going on between us!

Seedra: That's right! For starters, we're here on important business, and secondly, I already have my eye on…someone else.

Ray: Yeah. Me, too!

Amy: Oh, really? I'm sorry. I guess sometimes, even my sixth sense can be wrong on occasion. Boy, do I feel silly!

Ray: Don't worry about it.

Amy: So, what "important business" are you on, exactly?

Seedra: Well, you see, we're looking for something called an "Elemental Chaos Ring", and while Knuckles was using Tails' emerald detector, he said it landed somewhere in this city, and a place called "Casinopolis" was where it most likely ended up. Would you happen to know where that place is, by any chance?

Amy: I sure do! Follow me, and I'll lead you right to it!

Seedra: Okay, thank you. We appreciate the help.

Amy: No problem. *Turns to Cream and Big* I'll be right back, okay?

Cream: Okay.

Big: Okie dokey!

*Amy starts leading Ray and Seedra to Casinopolis*

Amy: By the way, I've been wondering…

Seedra: Yes, what is it?

Amy: These other people that you "have [your] eyes on"… Have you told them how you feel yet, if you don't mind me asking?

Ray: Uh, well, I, uh…

Seedra: It's…not that easy, I'm afraid.

Ray: Yeah, what she said.

Amy: Yes, I know… That kind of thing is never easy at first, but someday, I'm sure you'll eventually summon the courage to pull it off. Whoever it is you're pursuing, I wish you both the best of luck.

Ray: O-Oh, okay. Thanks.

Seedra: Yeah, that's…mighty generous of you.

Amy: You're most welcome. I'm always happy to help out when it comes to the subject of love!

*They get to the Casinopolis entrance shortly afterwards*

Amy: Well, here it is. I might not know the whole story concerning these "Element Rings" or whatever, but here's hoping things go well for you during your search.

Ray: Okay. Again, thanks. We appreciate the help.

Amy: Anytime. I'll see you two later, okay? *Walks away*

Seedra: *Waits until she's well out of sight* Ray, can you…keep a secret?

Ray: Sure, can you?

Seedra: Yeah, of course. Do you want to go first?

Ray: No, you can go ahead.

Seedra: Alright then. Remember when I said I had my eye on someone else? Well, what if I were to say that this "someone else"…is Sonic?

Ray: It is?

Seedra: Uh huh. Promise you won't tell Amy or Tiara about this, okay? Those two are crazy… They'll kill me if they find out!

Ray: Don't worry, I won't tell.

Seedra: Okay, good. Don't get me wrong, they ARE nice people and all, but there's just no denying the fact that they'd go ballistic if they knew about this. There's no guarantee that anything will ever happen between Sonic and I, but still… They would totally hate me for it.

Ray: I understand.

Seedra: So, what's your secret, exactly?

Ray: Heh heh, you're not gonna believe this, but the person that I have my eye on…is Amy.

Seedra: Wow, seriously!?

Ray: Yeah. Embarrassing, isn't it? You and Slush are the only ones I've ever told. If this secret were to get out, then I'd definitely be a laughing stalk.

Seedra: I wouldn't say that, exactly. As far as I know, the only two who'd find that funny are Charmy and Marine.

Ray: I know. If they were to find out about it, they'd go around telling everybody, including Amy. That's why they're two of the last people who need to know about this.

Seedra: That's for sure. Sometime last week, Charmy almost blurted out to Sonic that I had a crush on him, and WHILE Amy was right there! Thankfully, everyone covered his mouth before he had the chance.

Ray:  Oh, so THAT'S what he was about to say that one time?

Seedra: Yeah. -__-;;

In any case, why don't we go ahead and find that Elemental Chaos Ring before someone else does?

Ray: Good idea. At this point, it's best that we don't waste anymore time.

*They enter the building*

Ray: Wow, nice place, huh?

Seedra: Yeah. Let's take a look around, shall we?

With that said, the two of them began looking around, searching for the Elemental Chaos Ring that was said to be in the area. While they were in the middle of their search, they ended up stumbling upon Metal Sonic Version 3.0, who was having a conversation with someone through a walkie-talkie.

Ray: *Notices him* Oh, crud!

Seedra: What's the matter?

Ray: You see that robot over there? *Points* That's Metal Sonic 3.0, one of Dr. Nega's creations!

Seedra: So, THAT's Metal Sonic 3.0, huh? According to both Scorch and Slush, he's on the hunt for the Chaos Rings, too!

Ray: Oh, that's just GREAT.

Hey, I wonder who he's talking to? Why don't we hide for a bit and see what we could find out?

*They hide behind the corner*

Metal Sonic 3.0: Doctor, you said that the Elemental Chaos Ring is located within this city, correct? Well, you're going to have to be more specific. I just got finished searching thoroughly for it at Twinkle Park and a few other areas, but to no avail.

Robotnik: *Through the walkie-talkie* Hmm, let's see… *Checks his radar*

Metal Sonic 3.0: …

Seedra: That voice… It's Dr. Robotnik! So, the two of them really ARE on the same side after all! But…if he's Nega's creation, then what's he doing taking orders from someone else?

Ray: I don't have a clue. Your guess is as good as mine. Maybe Robotnik ended up reprogramming him, or something. I don't know the whole story behind it.

Robotnik: Ah, yes! I've found it! You said that your current location is Casinopolis, correct? Well, it'll definitely please you to know that you aren't very far from it! According to my readings, the Elemental Chaos Ring is located within an underground vault.

Metal Sonic 3.0: Underground vault…got it.

Robotnik: Huh!? What the…!?

Metal Sonic 3.0: Hmm? What's the problem?

Robotnik: *Checks the monitor* Well, well… It would appear as if a few uninvited guests have shown up at my base. It's none other than Shadow, Omega, Squash, and Metal Sonic. I wonder what they're doing here, exactly? I'll find out soon enough. Anyway, you go ahead and carry on with your search for that Elemental Chaos Ring. I'd recommend getting it as soon as possible, before anymore of those Chaotix fools catch on to it!

Metal Sonic 3.0: Yes, but before I begin, I have a favor to ask of you.

Robotnik: Alright, what is it?

Metal Sonic 3.0: If possible, would you mind telling your Badniks to leave Metal Sonic unharmed? I still have a score to settle with him. If anyone is going to have the pleasure of sending that obsolete scum to oblivion, then it's going to be me!

Robotnik: Very well. Perhaps I could simply turn him into a card or something, just as I did to Slush, and then bring him back to this dimension when you return. That way, you'll be able to exact your revenge.

Metal Sonic 3.0: Sounds reasonable enough. Anyway, the Chaos Ring is located within an underground vault, you said?

Robotnik: That's correct.

Metal Sonic 3.0: Understood. *Hangs up and puts the walkie-talkie away* Now, to infiltrate the underground vault. The sooner I find the Elemental Chaos Ring, the sooner I could even my score with Metal Sonic. This time, I'll prove which of us is TRULY the superior model, and it's none other than I!

Ray: Hold it right there, Three-Point Zero! *Comes from around the corner*

Seedra: *Does the same*

Metal Sonic 3.0: Hmm? *Turns around and looks at Ray* Wait, I recognize you… You're one of the bothersome insects who interfered with my battle against Metal Sonic a week ago! And you… *Looks toward Seedra* …You're EG-002, are you not?

Seedra: Yes, I am, but that's not the point. We're not letting you get your hands on that Chaos Ring, no matter what!

Ray: That's right!

Metal Sonic 3.0: Hmph. Fools. You don't stand a chance against me, so you'd best stand down.

Seedra: Who knows? We just might surprise you.

Metal Sonic 3.0: I have no time to deal with the likes of you. You might as well save yourselves the embarrassment by staying out of my way. That is, unless you would like me to kill you right now, where you stand!

Ray: Let's just see you try it, huh!? *Charges toward him*

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Holds out the palm of his hand and gets Ray caught in telekinesis*

Ray: Ghhhh…!

Seedra: Ray!

Ray: I…can't…budge!

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Tosses him into Seedra*

Ray: Uhhhhhh!

Seedra: Ahhhhhh! *Falls over*

Metal Sonic 3.0: Hmm hmm hmm! It's just as I said, you two aren't worth the effort. If you want to live, then I'd recommend staying right where you are. Stand in my way again, and I just MIGHT not be so merciful next time! *Turns on his jet booster and takes off*

Seedra: Ooh, why that pompous, arrogant piece of…! *Looks toward Ray* Are you alright?

Ray: Yeah, I'm fine. Come on, we've gotta go after him! *Runs off*

Seedra: Right! *Follows*

After being successfully led to Casinopolis by Amy Rose, Ray and Seedra have run into more trouble than they expected. Will the two of them be able to successfully outmaneuver Metal Sonic Version 3.0 and obtain the Elemental Chaos Ring before he does? If so, will they be able to stand even the slightest chance of defeating him? Find out on the next exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Part 8

On the previous chapter of The Goddess of Destruction, Ray the Flying Squirrel and EG-002/Seedra, the Goddess of Leaves, following the signal of the radar, decided to head over to Station Square to search for the Elemental Chaos Ring which was said to be in the area. According to Knuckles, Casinopolis is where it was most likely to be. Not knowing where the place was, Amy Rose, who happened to be in the area at the time, decided to lead them there. Immediately upon their arrival at the casino, Ray and Seedra began looking around, but unfortunately for them, Metal Sonic Version 3.0 was in the area, as well. To add insult to injury, Dr. Robotnik, through a communicator, ended up telling him precisely where the ring was located. Ray and Seedra, who overheard their conversation, have taken it upon themselves to stop Metal Sonic 3.0 from reaching the underground vault at all costs. Three-Point Zero then decided to issue a warning to the duo, stating that he won't hesitate to kill them if they try to stop him.

His threat, of course, went unheeded, as Ray charged toward Metal Sonic's doppelganger, attempting to attack him. With the data that he obtained from Silver the Hedgehog, Three-Point Zero was able to successfully stop Ray with telekinesis, constricting him of any movement. After that, he tossed him into Seedra, knocking them both down. Shortly afterwards, before taking off, he advised the two of them to stay where they are, claiming that he won't be so merciful next time they interfere with him. However, his threat has once again fallen on deaf ears, as Ray and Seedra have continued pursuing Three-Point Zero in order to obtain the Elemental Chaos Ring before he does. There's only one question that remains… Who will obtain the Chaos Ring first; Ray and Seedra, or perhaps Metal Sonic 3.0? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Seedra: That "underground vault"… Where IS it, exactly?

Ray: Metal Sonic 3.0 went this way, so I guess it's safe to assume that it's somewhere in that direction! *Points*

*They keep going and find an opened passage that leads underground*

Seedra: Yep, there's no mistake about it. This is definitely the "underground vault" that Robotnik spoke of in the transmission.

Ray: Yeah. Metal Sonic 3.0 only took off a little while ago, so he couldn't have gotten very far. There should still be enough time to catch him and get that Chaos Ring before he does!

Seedra: Alright, then let's go!

*They jump through the opening, land, and keep going*

Seedra: There he is!

Metal Sonic 3.0: What!? *Looks back and stops* So, you truly DO have a deathwish after all! I TOLD you what would happen if you continued to pester me, didn't I?

Ray: Yeah, but the thing is, we're not scared of you! Plus, we've got you outnumbered!

Seedra: Exactly! We can take you on!

Metal Sonic 3.0: …

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! What an amusing joke! I doesn't matter in even the slightest, because "outnumbered" and "outmatched" are two entirely differently things! If it weren't for the fact that you're trying to hinder me from completing my mission, I'd never entertain the thought of wasting my time on vermin like you!

Ray: GRRR… We'll show you JUST how tough we are! Just you wait and see! Seedra, what do you say we shut this guy up?

Seedra: That's fine with me! His arrogance is REALLY beginning to annoy me!

Metal Sonic 3.0: HAHAHAHAHAHA… Pathetic fools. So be it! *Holds out the palm of his hand*

Seedra: Oh, no, you don't! Not THIS time! *Vines extend from her back*

Before Metal Sonic 3.0 had the chance to get the two of them caught in telekinesis again, Seedra quickly used the vines on her back and wrapped them tightly around his arm. Shortly afterwards, she used them to swing Three-Point Zero around in circles and toss him into a wall.

Metal Sonic 3.0: UHHHHHHHH! *Czzzzzt!*

Ray: Nice one, Seedra! *Thumbs up*

Seedra: Thanks. Now, why don't we hurry along and get that Chaos Ring before he gets up again?

Ray: Good idea!

*They run off*

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Gets up again* You CANNOT escape! *Jets after them*

As Ray and Seedra continued to sprint through the area in search of the Elemental Chaos Ring, Metal Sonic 3.0 chased after them, firing all kinds of projectiles at the duo, ranging from fireballs (due to copying data from Scorch and Blaze the Cat), electric spheres (copied from Shock), etc. However, the two of them managed to dodge his attacks each time he did.

Ray: Man, there's GOTTA be a way to shake this guy, but how?

Seedra: I'm sure we'll think of something! For now, let's keep running!

Metal Sonic 3.0: I'm telling you, it's useless! What part of "you cannot escape" don't you understand? All of your efforts are in vain! *Aims at them with his finger and fires another laser at their feet, causing them to fall over*

Ray: Ahhhhhh! *Falls*

Seedra: Uhhhhhhh! *Same*

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Flies past them and stops* You see? Did I not tell you that your efforts were futile? Hmph, you were fools to challenge me! You should have stayed out of my way while you had the chance, but now it's too late! Now, I'm going to see to it that your deaths are nice and painful! Now, if you have any last words, you'd best say them now, while you still have the opportunity!

*They get back up*

Seedra: (If only there was a way to get some sunlight in here, I could tap into my solar power, and put an end to this for sure!)

Ray: Do we have any last words? I think you should ask yourself that question, Three-Point Zero!

Metal Sonic 3.0: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, of all things to say after finding yourself backed into a corner, staring death right in the face!

Ray: Like I already said, I'm not afraid of you!

Metal Sonic 3.0: Now, which of you would like to die first?

I think I'll start with you, squirrel. As I've previously stated, you were one of the meddlers who interfered with me during my battle against Metal Sonic and deprived me of my victory! After you've been disposed of, I'll send EG-002 your way shortly! That shouldn't be very difficult, considering the fact that she's the weakest of the EG Experiments!

Seedra: WHAT!?

Ray: Seedra isn't weak! First of all, she just got finished pummeling you a few minutes ago! Secondly, if she were to use the solar-powered attack that she used on those Mephiles clones last week, then you wouldn't stand a chance!

Seedra: Thank you, Ray.

Ray: No problem.

Metal Sonic 3.0: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! A rather interesting choice of last words, if I do say so myself! Anyway, prepare to die!

With the data that he obtained from Scorch, Metal Sonic 3.0 surrounded his fist with fire, dashed toward Ray with his jet booster, and threw a punch. Before it could land, Ray dodged it, causing Three-Point Zero to get his fist stuck in the floor. Taking advantage of the opportunity, Ray decided to tail-whip him, sending him sliding across the ground.

Metal Sonic 3.0: Oooooof!

Ray: *Charges up a Spindash* Ready or not, here I come! *Shoots toward him*

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Stops him with telekinesis*

Ray: Ghhh…! Not again!

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Tosses him into the wall*

Ray: Uhhhhhhh! *Hits his back against it*

Seedra: Ray!

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Aims his finger at Ray and fires a laser*

Ray: W-Whoa! *Rolls out of the way and stands up again*

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Fires again*

Ray: *Dodges that one, too*

Metal Sonic 3.0: Hmph… I must admit, you're quite agile, but speed alone won't save you from your demise! *Gets him caught in telekinesis again*

Ray: Ghhhh…! That's…so…cheap!

Seedra: Hey, you let him go! *Stretches her vines toward Metal Sonic 3.0*

Just as Seedra was about to get Metal Sonic 3.0 tangled within her vines again, he once again used the data that he obtained from Scorch and surrounded himself with fire. Before the vines could come in contact, Seedra abruptly withdrew.

Metal Sonic 3.0: You've made a wise decision. You're better off staying right there and waiting your turn, EG-002.

Seedra: GRRR…

Ray: Ihhh…! *Struggles to cut himself loose from his telekinetic grip*

Metal Sonic 3.0: What did I tell you before? Resistance is futile… You cannot escape, no matter how hard you may struggle! *Finishes powering up his fire attack* HAHAHAHAHAHA! The charge is complete! Just relax and enjoy your death, for you have nowhere else to go!

Just in time before Metal Sonic 3.0 was about to "fire", his flame blast at Ray, the smoke alarm suddenly began to go off, and then the sprinklers turned on and splashed Three-Point Zero, causing the machine to shortcircuit and lose his telekinetic grip on Ray.

Metal Sonic 3.0: W-WHAT!? THIS CAN'T BE! NOOOOO! *Bzzzzzt!* *Collapses to the floor*

Ray: Whew… That was TOO close!

Seedra: Yeah, I'll say! Come on, let's go ahead and find that Chaos Ring now!

*They take off, and eventually come across the Thunder Element Chaos Ring*

Ray: Hey, there it is! *Points*

Seedra: Adding to the one that Knuckles and Wechnia have found at the volcano, that's two down, and five more to go!

Ray: *Walks over to the Chaos Ring and picks it up*

Shortly after Ray picked up the Elemental Chaos Ring, a large energy beam was seen flying in his direction.

Seedra: *Notices it* LOOK OUT!!! *Knocks Ray out of the way and gets blasted instead* UHHHHHHHHHH!!!

*An explosion occurs*


Seedra: *Holds her arm as it bleeds*

Ray: Are…are you alright!?

Seedra: D-Don't worry, I'm…okay… *Collapses to the floor*

???: Hmm hmm hmm hmm!

Ray: That voice… It's Metal Sonic 3.0!

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Enters* Correct.

Ray: How is it that you're still alive!? We both saw you shortcircuit after getting sprayed by the sprinklers!

Metal Sonic 3.0: That may be so, but thanks to the built-in auto-recovery system that I've been equipped with, I was able to recover. Ironically, it would seem as if suffering that defeat at the hands of that obsolete scum, Metal Sonic has made me stronger! So far, I have been able to obtain new data from the Elemental Goddesses, as well as this auto-recovery system, which my previous body did not have!

Ray: Oh, now that's just GREAT… Anyway, you're gonna pay for what you've done to Seedra! You hear me!?

Metal Sonic 3.0: HAHAHAHAHA! Fool…there's nothing you can do! I am unstoppable! Even if, by some slim chance, you were to defeat me, I would only return with another spare body and grow even stronger! You might as well make things easy on yourself by relinquishing the Elemental Chaos Ring!

Ray: Not a chance!

Metal Sonic 3.0: Very well… Then you and EG-002 can perish together! *Aims his finger at Ray*

Right when Metal Sonic 3.0 was getting ready to fire, Seedra, who was seemingly unconscious, quickly made her vines lash out at him and wrap tightly around his arm, as well as the rest of his body, completing constricting the machine of any movement.

Metal Sonic 3.0: W-WHAT!? You're still alive!?

Seedra: Yes…as you can plainly see! Ray, I'll…hold him down while you escape with the Thunder Ring!

Ray: But…what about you?

Seedra: Don't…worry about me… I'll be fine.

Ray: Okay, but even so, won't Three-Point Zero be able to cut himself loose?

Seedra: Yeah, but…this should buy you plenty of time to get out of here and lure him outside! You…understand what I mean, don't you?

Ray: Uh...

Ah, right! I get it! *Runs off*

]Metal Sonic 3.0: I hope you realize that this little "strategy" of yours is merely delaying the inevitable! *Surrounds himself with electric current and breaks out of the vines*

Seedra: (W-What!? I didn't think he would be able to do it THAT soon!)

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Blasts Seedra*

Seedra: UHHHHHH! *Falls over and lands on her bleeding arm*

Metal Sonic 3.0: Your death has been postponed until I could catch up to that squirrel and retrieve the Chaos Ring! *Turns on his jet booster and flies off*

Seedra: So far, so…good… Owww! My…aching arm! *Holds it*


Ray: Almost there…just a little more! *Looks back and notices Metal Sonic 3.0* WHAT!?

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Fires a laser at him*

Ray: GAH! *Jumps out of the way and speeds up*

Metal Sonic 3.0 continued to chase Ray all throughout the underground vault in hopes of obtaining the Thunder Element Chaos Ring. Eventually, the two of them ended up returning to the upper area of Casinopolis. Due to Metal Sonic 3.0 firing all of those projectiles, the place ended up being in an uproar, with people screaming and evacuating the building. Meanwhile, outside…

*People run past Amy, Cream, Cheese, Chocola, Big, and Froggy, screaming in terror*

Big: Uh oh… That doesn't sound good…

Amy: Yeah. I wonder what's going on?

Cream: I don't know, but I'm getting kind of scared…

Cheese: Chao, Chao…

Ray: *Comes outside, holding the Thunder Ring*

Amy: Ah, Ray, it's you! I see that you've found the Element Ring you were looking for.

Hey, what happened to Seedra?

Ray: There's no time to explain! For now, you guys should-

*Another explosion occurs*

Amy: *Looks toward the doorway* Metal Sonic Three-Point Zero! I should've known!

Metal Sonic 3.0: What's this…reinforcements? Is THIS what EG-002 had in mind by luring me outside? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Pathetic!

Amy: You know… I liked it SO much better when you didn't talk!

Metal Sonic 3.0: Wait, I recognize you three... In addition to the squirrel, you were also responsible for interfering with me last time, when I was about to dispose of Metal Sonic! It was rather convenient for you to bring me to them, squirrel. Now, I'll have the pleasure of sending you ALL to oblivion!

Amy: Give it your best shot! *Takes out her hammer*

Cream: That's right, Mr. Three-Point Zero! If all of us work together, we can beat you for sure!

Metal Sonic 3.0: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! What a vivid imagination you possess! What can seven ants hope to do against a dinosaur?

*They get in fighting stances*

Metal Sonic 3.0: Anyway, I grow bored of all this talking. It's time I've put an end to your wretched existence once and for all!

Before anyone had the chance to so much as blink an eye, four solar-powered vines suddenly shot towards Metal Sonic 3.0 and protruded through his back, and all the way through is chest, as well.

Metal Sonic 3.0: UHHHHHHHH!!! *Czzzzzt!*

Everyone: …!

Cream: Oh! It's Miss Seedra!

Ray: You're just in time!

Metal Sonic 3.0: W-WHAT!? HOW DID YOU…!?

Seedra: How's…THAT for being "the weakest of the EG Experiments"!?

Metal Sonic 3.0: IM…IMPOSSIBLE! *Shuts off and collapses to the ground*

Seedra: There, that…takes care of him. *Retracts her vines and then kneels to the ground, holding her arm*

Amy: Are you alright?

Seedra: Yes, I'm okay… I just…need to rest for a bit, that's all…

Ray: Ah, okay. That's good to know.

Seedra: Getting ahold of that Elemental Chaos Ring…definitely turned out to be a lot harder than I thought!

Ray: You said it!

Big: Um, does anyone mind telling us what's going on?

Amy: I was going to ask the same thing. Exactly what's the story behind these "Elemental Chaos Rings", anyway?

*They explain*

Cream: So, THAT'S what that was about!

Amy: Yeah… This "Eee-Jee-Double-Oh-Five" definitely sounds like trouble! Hopefully, the Chaotix and the others will be able to find the rest of the rings before Robotnik and the others do!

Ray: Same with the rest of us. In any case, we're gonna drop this ring off at Tails' Workshop in the Mystic Ruins. We'll talk to you guys again later.

*They start walking away*

Big: Alright. We'll see ya later!

Froggy: *Croaks*

Cream: Bye-bye! *Waves*

*Cheese and Chocola wave, too*

Amy: Take care, you two!

Thanks to the heroic efforts of Ray and Seedra, they were able to successfully defeat Metal Sonic Version 3.0 and claim the next Elemental Chaos Ring. However, there are still five more to go. How are the others faring in their search for the rings? Will they be able to find them in time before Dr. Robotnik and his associates do? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Part 9

When we last left off on The Goddess of Destruction, Ray the Flying Squirrel and the Leaf Goddess, Seedra, faced off against Dr. Nega's creation, Metal Sonic Version 3.0 in hopes of defeating him and obtaining the next Elemental Chaos Ring before he does, so that they could stop Project EG-005 from reaching completion. The battle went on for quite some time, but just when Three-Point Zero began to gain the upper hand, he accidentally caused Casinopolis' ceiling sprinklers to go off, and began to shortcircuit upon contact with the water. Seeing the opportunity, Ray and Seedra made their escape and went to claim the Thunder Element Chaos Ring.

Shortly after the obtaining the ring, a large beam of energy was shot at Ray, but Seedra ended up knocking him out of the way and taking the blow instead, which effectively caused an injury to her left arm. The blast came from none other than Metal Sonic 3.0, who survived after getting sprayed by the sprinklers. Knowing that she's unable to tap into her solar powers unless sunlight was in the area, Seedra had Ray lead Metal Sonic 3.0 outside by running off with the Chaos Ring. When they got outside, they ran into Team Rose, and they all prepared to face Three-Point Zero together, but before anything else could be done, Seedra arrived on the scene and used a solar-powered vine technique to pierce through Metal Sonic 3.0's chest, causing the machine shut off and collapse to the ground.

After saying their goodbyes to Amy and company, Ray and Seedra decided to take the next train to the Mystic Ruins and bring the newly acquired Elemental Chaos Ring to Tails' Workshop. With that one, as well as the Fire Element Chaos Ring that Knuckles and Wechnia obtained at the Lava Reef Zone, that makes two down, and five to go. How will all the others fare in collecting the rings? Will they be able to successfully retrieve them before Dr. Robotnik and his associates can? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Meanwhile, on the train…

Ray: Are you sure you're gonna be alright? Your arm still looks pretty bad…

Seedra: Yes, I'll be fine…

Ray: I really appreciate what you've done for me, by the way… But you didn't have to, you know…

Seedra: Ah, it was no sweat…

Ray: Yeah, but still, I definitely owe you one.

*They eventually arrive at Tails' Workshop in the Mystic Ruins*

Cubot: Ah, so I see you found one o' them Chaos Ring thing o' ma jiggers?

Seedra: Yeah. We…ran into a bit of trouble, though, since Metal Sonic 3.0 was over there, but we still managed to get ahold of it.

Tails: Ah, okay. Nicely done, you two! I've never fought him myself, but Metal Sonic 3.0 is a dangerous adversary, so it must have been pretty difficult having to fight against him for the Elemental Chaos Ring.

Ray: You don't know the half of it.

Heavy: By the way, I'm curious…

Tails: What is it, Heavy?

Heavy: The Elemental Chaos Rings… They were created as a result of infusing the Chaos Rings with elemental powers, correct? Well, I've been thinking… Perhaps there's a way to somehow separate the two of them again? By depriving the Chaos Rings of their newfound powers, Robotnik won't be able to complete EG-005!

Ray: You know, I think you just might be onto something!

Tails: Yeah, that's a good idea, but unfortunately, I don't have the kind of technology to pull that off.

Bomb: Well, so much for that idea, huh?

Tails: But I DO know someone who might.

Seedra: You do?

Orbot: Who might that be, exactly?

Tails: You guys all know Tiara, I'm pretty sure. Well, she and her father happen to be experts when it comes to the art of ring-smithing.

Heavy: Wow, who would've known that she was actually useful for something, other than getting into annoying, pointless squabbles over someone who wants nothing to do with her?

Cubot: 'Dat's purdy harsh, ain't it?

Bomb: That's Heavy for you. Even while giving compliments, he STILL manages to be insulting.

*Tails contacts Professor Boobowski and has him displayed on the monitor*

Tails: Hello, Professor!

Prof. Boobowski: Ah, Tails, it's you! How are you doing, young lad?

Tails: I'm going great, thank you. There's something I'd like you to take a look at. Ray, could I see the ring, please?

Ray: Sure. *Hands it to him*

Tails: *Holds up both the Fire and Thunder Rings*

Prof. Boobowski: Hmm… In addition to their remarkable craftsmanship, there's a fiery and electrical aura around them! I've never seen anything like this before… What are they, exactly?

Tails: They're Elemental Chaos Rings. Robotnik created them by accident while trying to transfer the Chaos Rings' power into the Multi-Element Gem that he created.

Prof. Boobowski: Ah, I see! Rather intriguing, if I do say so myself! To think something like this could be created by accident… Incredible!

Tails: We were wondering if there's anything you could do to remove their elemental powers.

Prof. Boobowski: Why, pray tell, would you want to do that, exactly?

Tails: Because... Robotnik created these to use for his latest project, which he codenamed "EG-005".  According to what I heard from the Chaotix, EG-005 is supposed to have the powers of all seven Elemental Goddesses wrapped up in one, plus additional power from the Chaos Rings, which are just as powerful as the Chaos Emeralds! If Robotnik manages to complete this project, then there just might not be any stopping her!

Prof. Boobowski: Goodness, that IS quite a dilemma, isn't it? I'll see what I can do. I'll see what I can do. Currently, I do not have any such device that can extract the elemental powers from the Chaos Rings, but Professor Porkenstein and I can build one. We'll get to work on it ASAP.

Tiara: Yeah, and while they're doing that, I'm going to be over at your Workshop in a little bit to pick up the two Elemental Chaos Rings that you have. That way, when the machine is finished, we'll be able to test it out right away.

Tails: Ah, okay. Thank you.

By the way, who's "Professor Pork-en-steen"?

*A brown porcupine with a lab coat, black pants, glasses, a grey mustache, and grey hair/spines that sticks upward (similar to Super Sonic) steps into view of the monitor*

Porkenstein: That would be me, young one. I'm Nathaniel Porkenstein, Professor Boobowski's lab assistant. You're Tails, I presume?

Tails: Yes, that's me.

*The others introduce themselves, too*

Seedra: It's nice to meet you, sirs. *Politely bows*

Porkenstein: Likewise.

Prof. Boobowski:  Yes, indeed. Now that we've all been acquainted, there's much work for us to do.

Porkenstein: We'll be sure to alert you as soon as it's completed.

Tiara: And with that… I'm off! I'll be right back. *Jets out the door*

After everyone was finished getting acquainted, Tiara quickly rushed out of the laboratory, bound for Tails' Workshop in the Mystic Ruins. Meanwhile, at Station Square…

*A large crowd of people are seen gawking at Metal Sonic 3.0 before the red glow suddenly reappears in his eyes*

Random Guy: Oh, crap! He's alive!

Random Woman: Run for the hills!

*People run off, screaming*

Metal Sonic 3.0: EG-002 and that squirrel… Curse them! That Elemental Chaos Ring was right within my grasp, and I would have obtained it had it not been for their interference! They shouldn't have been so careless as to leave my body intact. Now, I'm going to see to it that they rue the day we ever crossed paths! The same thing applies to that outdated trash model, Metal Sonic the next time we meet!

Robotnik: *Through the communicator* So, how did it go, exactly? Did you manage to get the Elemental Chaos Ring?

Metal Sonic 3.0: Negative. Just as I was on the verge of infiltrating the underground vault to obtain it, EG-002 and that squirrel, whose name escapes me, ended up getting in my way and managed to get the ring before I had the opportunity!

Robotnik: CURSES! So, it's true then… Since the two of THEM, in addition to Knuckles and Wechnia, have acquired knowledge of the Elemental Chaos Rings, there's no doubt in my mind that the rest of those Chaotix fools, and possibly Sonic, are aware of them, too! Why, those meddlesome pests! They ALWAYS ruin EVERYTHING!

Metal Sonic 3.0: You needn't worry, Dr. Robotnik. As long as your radar is still in working condition, then there's no way they can possibly keep it hidden. Up to my knowledge, the Elemental Chaos Ring is still in their possession. Just point me out to their location, and I'll go after them immediately to retrieve it!

Robotnik: *Checks the radar* Hmm, two of them appear to be located within the Mystic Ruins. Tails' Workshop, to be exact!

Metal Sonic 3.0: Ah, I see.

Robotnik: Now, if you would excuse me, I still have intruders to deal with. Contact me again after you've obtained it.

Metal Sonic 3.0: Very well, then I'm off. *Hangs up, turns on his jet booster and flies away*

Robotnik: *Hangs up, too* So far, Metal Sonic 3.0 is after the Elemental Chaos Rings at Tails' Workshop, Scorch is retrieving the one at the Ice Cap Zone, Shock is after the one located in Mushroom Hill, and Storm's getting the one at Windy Valley. Now that I'm certain that those Chaotix fools are after them, I'm going to need to get ahold the seventh one as quickly as possible! I would be more than happy to go after it myself, but now that those intruders have invaded my base, then I cannot afford to leave EG-005 unprotected. Otherwise, they'll destroy her before I have the chance to complete her development! What to do, what to do…

Wait a minute! I just realized… I still have Egg-Robo's control chip! *Takes it out of his pocket* Perhaps I could send HIM to look for that seventh Chaos Ring at the Sandopolis Zone!

With that said, the doctor rushed out of the surveillance room and into the production room in order to upload the control chip into a spare body and effectively revive the Egg-Robo, who happens to be Knuckles' old nemesis.

Robotnik: *Walks over to the capsule* HAHAHAHAHA! Excellent! Despite Slush's snooping around, Egg-Robo and all the other robots seem to be in perfect condition! Then again, that's most likely because she was a lot more concerned about EG-005, so she didn't pay them any mind. Not that I'm complaining, though! HAHAHAHAHAHA… *Ahem* Now, to begin… *Opens the capsule*

After opening the capsule, Robotnik quickly opened placed the control chip within the slot on Egg-Robo's head and activated him. Shortly afterwards, a bright yellow glow appeared in the robot's eyes as he sat up.

Egg-Robo: *Looks toward Robotnik* D-Doctor… Robotnik? *Looks at his hands* I'm…alive?

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That you are, my friend! Thanks to Knuckles, your previous body was destroyed, but luckily, your control chip was left unscathed, so I was able to easily have it uploaded into one of the spare bodies I've built for you.

Egg-Robo:  Knuckles… *Clenches his fist in anger* Oh, how I DESPISE that wretched echidna! One way or another, he's going to pay DEARLY for everything he's done to me! I'm going to see to it that I pay him back tenfold!

Robotnik: Not to worry, you'll get your revenge soon enough, but in the meantime, there's a very important task that I need you to perform for me.

Egg-Robo: What is it, Doctor?

Robotnik: There's a special jewel that I'm currently seeking, called an "Elemental Chaos Ring", which I need in order to complete a project of mine. I need you to go over there to retrieve it for me. Who knows? You might even run into Knuckles while you're there! After all, he and the rest of those Chaotix fools are hunting for them, as well.

Egg-Robo: Hee hee hee! Yes, consider it done! This time, he isn't going to know what hit him!

Robotnik: Good, good. While you're doing that… *Looks toward one of the other capsules* I think I'll send THIS one to go deal with the intruders.

Egg-Robo: Wait a minute, Doctor… Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that the same robot that you had to shut down in the past, because of how mentally unstable it was?

Robotnik: Yes, but you know what they say… "Desperate times call for desperate measures". Plus, I've made a few adjustments since then.

Egg-Robo: I see. Well, in any case, I'm going to be on my way.  *Runs towards one of the Egg –O- Matic Hovercrafts, jumps into it, and takes off*

After hopping taking off in one of Robotnik's Egg –O- Matic Hovercrafts, the Egg-Robo took off at hyper speed, bound for the Sandopolis Zone; not only for the purpose of obtaining the Elemental Chaos Ring, but to seek his revenge upon Knuckles, who happens to be there, searching for the next Elemental Chaos Ring with Rouge. Elsewhere within the base…

*A bunch of broken up Badnik parts are scattered everywhere*

Omega: Enemy robots…successfully destroyed! Worthless consumer models… Did they truly think they had a chance?

Squash: AH-HA-AH-AH-AH-AH-AH!  Oh, I agree completely… They weren't even worth the trouble! Surely, this isn't the best Ivo could do? I certainly hope not! Although, I highly doubt he'll be able to come up with anything that can match up against MY power!

Metal Sonic: I told you before; I'm not concerned about this "Eee-Jee-Double-Oh-Five" at all. I'm only here to even my score with Metal Sonic Version 3.0.

Shadow: Well, as far as I can tell, I don't think he's here. If he was, then I'm sure he would have shown up by now. According to Slush, he's one of the people who are in search of the Elemental Chaos Rings.

Metal Sonic: Then that's where I'm going!

???: HAHAHAHAHA! Leaving so soon?

Shadow: *Looks toward the automatic door* It's the doctor!

Robotnik: Oh, but that's not all! I've also arranged for a new toy for you all to play with!

Squash: And what would THAT be?

Robotnik: See for yourselves![/color]

*The robot enters the room*

???: Hee hee hee! Here I am! *Giggles* Metal Sonic, it's been too long!

Metal Sonic: WHAT!? YOU!?

In addition to the Egg-Robo, Dr. Robotnik has also unleashed another robot, which he's had in storage for quite some time. Who is this mysterious robot, and how does it and Metal Sonic know each other? Despite the doctor's "adjustments", will it truly be as "mentally unstable" as it's been said to be in the past? How will Shadow, Omega, Squash, and Metal Sonic fare against it? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Part 10

On the previous chapter of The Goddess of Destruction, Ray and Seedra, after defeating Metal Sonic Version 3.0 in battle, left Station Square and returned to Tails' Workshop in the Mystic Ruins to drop the Elemental Chaos Ring off for safekeeping. Shortly afterwards, Heavy made a suggestion to extract the elemental powers from the Chaos Rings so that Robotnik will be unable to complete EG-005, but Tails stated that he did not have the technology to do so. However, he was able to contact Tiara and her father, Gazebo Boobowski, who happen to be experts in the art of ring smithing. After explaining the situation to them, Professor Boobowski decided to create a new machine to remove the elemental powers from the Chaos Rings.

Meanwhile, at Station Square, it was revealed that Metal Sonic 3.0 managed to survive Seedra's attack, most likely because of his new built-in auto-recovery system. After he rose again, Robotnik contacted him, saying that two of the Elemental Chaos Rings are located at Tails' Workshop, and he began heading over there immediately. Elsewhere, at Dr. Robotnik's base, the doctor released two old robots of his from the storage room; Egg-Robo, which he sent to retrieve the Elemental Chaos Ring at the Sandopolis Zone, and another "new", mysterious robot, which was sent to deal with Shadow, Squash, Metal Sonic, and Omega, who've infiltrated the base to stop EG-005's development. These questions still remain: Who is this mysterious robot, and how do it and Metal Sonic know one another? Will Tiara be able to get to Tails' Workshop to claim the two Elemental Chaos Rings before Metal Sonic 3.0 does? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

*The robot comes forth and reveals itself to be a robotic version of Classic Amy*

Robotnik: Allow me to formally introduce… Mecha Amy!

Mecha Amy: Pleased to meet you. *Politely bows* Or should I say…pleased to KILL you? *Giggles, and then looks toward Metal Sonic* Although, I wouldn't dream of doing such a thing to YOU, my sweet…

Metal Sonic: …

Omega: You two have met, I presume?

Mecha Amy: *Giggles* Why, yes, we have. He and I have SUCH chemistry together… *Walks toward Metal Sonic and inches toward his face* …Isn't that right?

Metal Sonic: *Quickly backs away from her, slightly terrified*

Mecha Amy: Aww, what's the matter? Aren't you happy to see me?

Metal Sonic: *Sarcastic tone* Oh, yes, I'm just BRIMMING with enthusiasm!

Mecha Amy: *Giggles* Aww, don't worry… I don't bite. That is, unless you want me to. *Giggles again*

Shadow: …

Omega: …

Squash: …

Pffft, is this some kind of joke? THIS is what you had in mind for a worthy opponent, Ivo? AH-HA-AH-AH-AH-AH! I think you're REALLY scraping the bottom of the barrel now!

Robotnik: I wouldn't get so overconfident if I were you. Although her power may pale in comparison to that of EG-005, Mecha Amy can certainly prove to be quite the adversary. Don't just take my word for it, though. I'm sure Metal Sonic can tell you all about it.

Shadow: Yes, since the two of you seem to know one another, how powerful would you say she is, exactly?

Metal Sonic: It's difficult to describe, so all I can really say is that she's a lot more than what she appears to be. Aside from her power, the one thing that's truly fearsome about Mecha Amy is her deranged mind and her appetite for destruction...

*Cue flashback*

Mecha Amy: *Laughs maniacally while blasting everything around her like crazy* WOW, THIS IS SO MUCH FUN!

(Classic) Robotnik: *A bit beaten and tattered from getting caught in one of the explosions* MECHA AMY! STOP THIS NOW!

Mecha Amy: *Ignores him and continues* BOOM, BOOM! I LOVE SEEING EVERYTHING GO BOOOOOOOM! *Continues ravaging the area*

(Classic) Robotnik: I SAID STOP! DO YOU WANT TO BRING DOWN THE ENTIRE BASE!? *Notices a beam flying at him* WAAAH! *Dodges*

*Robotnik summons several Badniks to deal with her*

(Classic) Robotnik: (This should buy me enough time to find that emergency shut-down controller!) *Starts searching around for it*

*Mecha Amy ends up destroying the Badniks in a brief instant, and turns her focus over to Robotnik*

(Classic) Robotnik: WHAT!? No way! I can't BELIEVE this!

Mecha Amy: *Fires an eye laser at him*

(Classic) Robotnik: *Dives out of the way*

Mecha Amy: Hee hee hee! *Starts walking towards Robotnik, holding out the palm of her hand, revealing small red, circular device*

(Classic) Robotnik:  W-What're you doing!? Stay back! *Starts crawling backwards to avoid her*

Mecha Amy: *Ignores him once more and continues*

(Classic) Robotnik: Don't you know who I am!? I am Doctor Ivo Robotnik, your creator! And you WILL do as I-

Before Robotnik had the chance to finish his sentence, Mecha Amy managed to get close enough to him, and grabbed Robotnik by the palm of her hand, face-first.

(Classic) Robotnik: Mmmmmph!

Mecha Amy: Hee hee hee! Now, your energy is mine!

(Classic) Robotnik: *Jerks away from her*


*Metal Sonic bursts into the room before she has the chance to do anything else*

Mecha Amy: Hmm? *Looks* Wow, he's a cutie! *Releases Robotnik*

(Classic) Robotnik: *Gasps for air* Metal Sonic, you're right on time! I need you to distract her, while I find the shut-down controller!

Metal Sonic: *Nods*

Mecha Amy: *Stares at Metal Sonic, with hearts in her eyes*

Metal Sonic: …?

(Classic) Robotnik: *Continues looking for the controller*

Mecha Amy: *Starts walking towards Metal Sonic*

Metal Sonic: …! *Starts backing away until he gets to a corner*

Mecha Amy: Just give it up, there's no escape! You're mine…

Egg-Robo: *Quickly enters the room* Here, use this, Doctor! *Hands Robotnik the controller*

(Classic) Robotnik: Ah, there it is! *Takes it, aims it at Mecha Amy, and shuts her down*

Mecha Amy: *The red glow in her eyes disappears and she slips into unconsciousness*

*End flashback*

Shadow: So, THAT'S the kind of power she possesses…

Robotnik: Yes, she was certainly quite the handful, wasn't she? In addition to wrecking my base, the faulty machine nearly had me killed! Originally, I intended to dispose of her, but then I decided that she still had plenty of potential, and would be some use to me sometime in the future, so I opted to make adjustments to her programming and keep her in storage, so I could release her again when the time was right. Needless to say, that moment has finally arrived! Needless to say, that moment has finally arrived! Ahem! Now then! Mecha Amy, dispose of these intruders! Give them all you've got!

Mecha Amy: *Ignores him and focuses on Metal Sonic*

Robotnik: Did you hear me!? I said DESTROY them!

Mecha Amy: *Continues ignoring him*

Robotnik: Do you want me to shut you down again!?

Mecha Amy: Oh, uh… Right away, Doctor!

Robotnik: Now THAT's more like it! (Despite the adjustments I've made to her programming, she still isn't entirely obedient. Sure, she's improved a lot since then, but it would appear as if I still have a few bugs to iron out.) I'll leave everything to you, Mecha Amy! Don't disappoint me! *Leaves the room*

Metal Sonic: I'm going to be on my way, as well. I already have a prior engagement, but before I leave, I feel that I must warn you. Mecha Amy may not be able to obtain data like Three-Point Zero and myself, but she does, however, contain an energy-draining device on each of her hands.

Shadow: I see. What kind of energy does she absorb, exactly?

Metal Sonic: She specializes in absorbing bio-energy, so it's highly recommended that you do not let her touch you.

Shadow: Understood.

Metal Sonic: *Turns on his jet booster and flies away*

Omega: In that case… *Looks toward Shadow and Squash* Why don't you leave her destruction to me? I will take care of her, while the two of you focus on destroying EG-005 and rescuing the Ice Goddess?

Squash: Well, alright then, but won't she absorb your energy, too?

Omega: Negative. That is inconsequential, as I am fully mechanical, and do not possess any bio-energy for her to absorb.

Shadow: Fair enough. We'll leave her to you, Omega.

*They leave*

Omega: *Morphs his one of his arms into a rocket launcher and aims it at Mecha Amy* Prepare yourself, Mecha Amy, for your destruction is at hand!

Mecha Amy: Ohhhh, is it really?

Omega: *Gets the crosshair locked on her*

*They start firing at one another*

Meanwhile, as the two machines were squaring off, Shadow and Squash moved on to continue their search for EG-005's inactive body. As they did, they've managed to catch up to Robotnik, who left the room a few minutes before they did.

Squash: Hold it, Ivo!

Robotnik: *Stops, turns around, and glares at her* That's Dr. Robotnik to you, you insolent fool!

Squash: AH-HA-AH-AH-AH! Whatever you say, "Eee-vo"!

Robotnik: ENOUGH! First of all, what do you want!? Secondly, how did you manage to get past Mecha Amy so quickly!?

Shadow: It's quite simple, actually. Omega has taken it upon himself to stop her on his own. Secondly, it's come to our attention in addition to creating EG-005, you're also holding Slush hostage.

Robotnik: Oh, really?

Squash: Yes, and we want to know what you've done with her. We could do this the easy way or the hard way. *Cracks her knuckles* Which is going to be?

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA… So, you want to know THAT badly, eh?

Squash: You got it.

Robotnik: Hmph. Very well, veeeery well. *Reaches into his pocket and takes out Nega's camera*

Shadow: That's Dr. Nega's camera!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA! That's right! It's been an entire week since I've trapped Slush within that card, and she must be feeling pretty lonely by now. I'm sure she would LOVE to have someone there to keep her company! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *Aims the camera at them and presses the button*

Shadow & Squash (at the same time): AAAAAAHHHHH!

Within a single click of a button, Robotnik used Nega's camera to make the two of them disappear, effectively adding the two of them to his "card collection".

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That's two more of them down! If, by some chance, Omega happens to get past Mecha Amy, then the same fate awaits HIM, as well! HAHAHAHAHAHA…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Meanwhile, in the alternate dimension…

*Shadow and Squash fall down and land in front of Slush*

Slush: Are you two alright?

Shadow: Yes, we're fine.

Squash: Yeah, and you?

Slush: I'm fine, too, for the most part, other than the fact that my arm is still hurting from when Robotnik stabbed it a week ago for the blood sample. Now I know how Scorch felt when Robotnik created you, Seedra, Shock, and Storm.

Shadow: I see. Well, on the bright side, everything is going according to plan. By using that camera on us, the doctor has played right into our hand!

Slush: Huh? Wait, you mean to tell me that you got yourselves turned into cards on purpose?

Shadow: Precisely. After you told us that there was another dimension behind those cards, Squash and I have devised a plan to get you out of here, by creating a space-time rift with the Chaos Emeralds.

Squash: Yep, and luckily, each of us already had one of the seven emeralds in our possession before we got to the base.

Slush: Ah, so THAT'S why purposely got yourselves turned into cards! I have to say, that was pretty clever.

Shadow: *Takes out the green Chaos Emerald* Are you ready, Squash?

Squash: *Takes out the purple one* Ready.

Shadow: Chaos…!

Squash: …Control!

*A portal appears*

Slush: Yes, now I could finally get out of this place! Alright, here goes! *Jumps through it*

*Shadow and Squash do the same*

Thanks to the careful planning of Shadow and Squash, they were able to successfully release Slush from her dimensional "prison" after having been stuck in there for the past week. Elsewhere, at the Ice Cap Zone…

Charmy: *Wearing an orange Eskimo-like winter coat and playing in the snow* Whoo hoo! Hey, Splash, you should try this! It's really, REALLY fun!

Splash: *Wearing the same blue Eskimo-like coat that she had in Episode 1* Yes, Charmy, but shouldn't we concentrate on trying to find the Elemental Chaos Ring? For all we know, Scorch might have gotten ahold of it already…

Charmy: Oh, right.

*Picks up a snowball and throws it at Splash*

Splash: *Gets hit in the face* Hey!

Charmy: Hee hee hee! Sorry, couldn't resist!

Splash: Why, you…! *Wipes off her face, picks up a snowball of her own, and throws it back at Charmy*

Charmy: *Dodges* Missed me! Catch me if you can! *Flies off ahead*

Splash: Oh, I will! *Picks up another snowball and runs after Charmy* (Wow, is it true that he would've been seventeen years old right now if that incident hadn't taken place? Even so, he's still so innocent and child-like… Others find him to be irritating for that reason, but I, on the other hand, happen to like that about him.)

*Splash continues to chase Charmy until a portal suddenly appears in front of them*

Charmy: Huh? What's that? Could it be that someone's using Chaos Control, or something?

Get it, "Could it bee"?*Snickers*

Splash: *Giggles* No matter how many times I hear them, those puns just never get old to me!

*Shadow, Slush, and Squash come through the portal*

Charmy: Yep, I was right!

Splash: Slush, you're back!

Slush: Yeah. Although, the last time Robotnik transported the last batch of food to me, I heard him say that he was planning to release me after EG-005 was completed, but thanks to these two, I got out even sooner than planned!

Charmy: I'm sure Bark will be happy to see you again, too. *Snickers*

Slush: *Blushes* Very funny.

Charmy: I know, wasn't it? *Snickers again*

Splash: Speaking of Bark, maybe he knows where the Elemental Chaos Ring is? It wouldn't hurt to pay him a visit and find out.

Shadow: Good idea. While you're doing that, Squash and I are going to return to the doctor's base to continue our search for EG-005.

Squash: Yeah. We'll catch you guys again later.

Slush: Alright, take care, you two. By the way, thanks. I appreciate the help.

Shadow: Don't mention it. Chaos Control! *Warps himself and Squash out of the area*

Meanwhile, back at the base…

Omega: *Blasts Mecha Amy into the wall with a laser*

Mecha Amy: UHHHHHH! *Czzzzzt!* *Crashes into it*

Omega: Mecha Amy…successfully destroyed, for I am E-123 Omega, the ultimate E-Series robot! *Notices Shadow and Squash warp in* Hmm? EG-005 has been destroyed, I presume?

Shadow: Not yet. After we left this room, we ran into the doctor, and then he used Nega's camera and transported us to Slush's dimension.

Squash: Yeah, and after bailing her out, we found ourselves in the middle of the Ice Cap Zone somewhere. We're just now getting back.

Omega: I see. *Notices that Mecha Amy's still standing* It would appear as if this battle hasn't reached a conclusion yet…

Mecha Amy: *Glares at Omega* You're such a meanie, attacking sweet, little innocent girls like me! *Czzzzt!*

Shadow: I don't believe you fall into the "sweet", nor the "innocent" category. According to both Metal Sonic and the doctor, you've proven yourself to be quite destructive in the past.

Mecha Amy: I'll show YOU "destructive"!  *Takes out a metallic hammer and opens up the end of it*

Shadow: What the…!? Is that…a missile launcher!?

Mecha Amy: You got it! *Starts firing missiles at them*

Omega: I will handle this! You two resume your search for EG-005! *Starts shooting the missiles down*

*They leave the room while Omega continues handling Mecha Amy*

Meanwhile, at the Ice Cap Zone, Charmy, Splash, and Slush have made it towards the entrance to Bark's crystallized cave.

Charmy: Well, here we are. I wonder if he's home?

Slush: There's only one way to find out.

*They enter, proceed through the cave, look around the corner, and find Bark, along with Scorch*

Scorch: *Takes a sip of hot cocoa* Wait, so you mean to tell me that YOU haven't seen Slush, either!?

Bark: As a matter of fact, I haven't. Up until now, I figured she was probably with you, over at Robotnik's!

Scorch: Well, she hasn't. I haven't seen her ever since last week, when we dealt with Dr. Nega up at the Doomsday Zone. She told Shock and Storm that she would be coming back with us to Dr. Robotnik's base soon, but…she never returned…

Bark: I see… You don't suppose something could have happened to her, do you? I certainly hope not…

Scorch: Same here. You didn't hear this from me, Bark, but… I really miss her. I never thought I would be saying this, considering the fact that we didn't get along so well in the past. *Tears begin to fill her eyes* I'm really worried about her… I'm so worried, that I could barely sleep at night… What if something truly HAS happened…? If so, then I… I don't think I'd ever be able to live with myself… *Bursts into tears*

Bark: Now, now… *Hands her a box of tissues* There's no need to cry. Wherever Slush is, I'm sure she's alright. Just to be sure, why don't you and I go look for her together?

Scorch: Sure, I'd like that. *Takes the box and uses a tissue to wipe her face* Again, you didn't hear any of that from me. If possible, would you mind keeping that a secret?

Bark: What's the big deal? I mean, it's not like people have never seen you crying before…

Scorch: Well, yeah, but this is different. Even I have an image to keep, you know.

Bark: Okay then. Your secret's safe with me.

Charmy: It's safe with us, too!

Bark: *Startled* What the…!?

Scorch: *Even more started* AHHHHH!

Hey, it's the bee, Splash, and…Slush!? How…how long have you been there!?

Slush: We came in around "[…] you mean to tell me that YOU haven't seen Slush, either!?"

Scorch: You're…you're kidding me!

Slush: I kid you not, big sis. Honestly, I had no idea you cared this much about me!

Scorch: …

I don't know what you're talking about! You were just hearing things, that's all!

Splash: *Giggles* Some things never change, do they?

Bark: It's nice to see you again, Slush! Where have you been, exactly?

Slush: Well, I was in another dimension, just like Wechnia was last month before he assisted us in that battle against Solaris. Thanks to the dimensional rift that Shadow and Squash created, I've been freed.

Scorch: Ah, I guess THAT explains it! So, how did you wind up in another dimension, anyway?

Slush: Well… It's kind of a long story. I'll tell you about it later.

Scorch: Alright then. Anyway, I have to go. There's something I need to take care of. I'll see you again later. *Runs off and flies away*

Splash: By the way, Bark, we have something important to ask you.

Bark: Sure, what is it?

Splash: We're looking for something called an "Elemental Chaos Ring". Have you seen it around anywhere?

Bark: Hmm… Now that you mention it, I DO remember seeing a Chaos Ring around that had a strange icy effect to it…

Charmy: You have!? Where did you find it?

Bark: I saw it land in the freezing pond while I was out catching fish, and I decided to grab it.

Charmy: Awesome! Can we have it? We need it for something really, REALLY important.

Bark: Yeah, sure. I'll be right back. *Leaves the room*

Splash: Ah, okay, good! That definitely saves us another hour or so of searching for it.

*He comes back with it about a minute later and gives it to them*

Charmy: Yay! We got another one! That makes two so far, since Knuckles and Wechnia found one at the volcano!

Slush: Make that three, since Ray and Seedra found the one at Casinopolis. I heard Metal Sonic 3.0 complaining about it during his conversation with Robotnik over the walkie-talkie.

Splash: So far so good, then! I wonder how the others are doing?

Meanwhile, at the Mushroom Hill Zone…

Honey: There it is, Espio! The Elemental Chaos Ring!

Espio: Looks like our mission was a success!

*As soon as they get ready to grab the Leaf Element Ring, it gets swiped at the blink of an eye*

Honey: What was that!?

???: I'm over here!

Espio: *Looks toward the tree* Shock! I should've known…

Shock: *Leaning against the tree, twirling the Chaos Ring around her finger* Yep, that's me! It looks like we meet again. I have no quarrel with you two, but I cannot allow you to have the Chaos Ring. I am willing to make an exception, however, if you could defeat me.

Honey: Alright, if that's what you want.

*They take out their shurikens and get in fighting stances*

Shock: Wow, way to jump to conclusions here, guys. I meant if you could defeat me in a race, not a fight.

Espio: Oh, I see.

*They put their weapons away*

Honey: A race? Where to, exactly?

Shock: To the very end of the valley, where all the leaves are white. If the two of you could somehow manage to get over there before I do, then I'll gladly give this ring. Do we have a deal? *Extends her arm*

Espio: Deal. *Shakes her hand*

Shock: Alright, then it's settled.

Espio: *Takes out a Combi-Ring, grabs one end of it, and gives the other to Honey*

Shock: On your mark, get set… GO!!![

*The three of them take off*

So far, it looks as if things are looking up for our heroes. Three Elemental Chaos Rings have been obtained, and Slush has been freed from her captivity within another dimension. However, there are still four more Elemental Chaos Rings to be found. Will Espio and Honey be able to successfully outrun the Lightning Goddess, Shock, and defeat her in a race? Will Omega be able to summon the strength to defeat Amy's deadly, destructive doppelganger? Speaking of "doppelgangers", will Metal Sonic be able to find Metal Sonic 3.0 in time before he has the chance to intercept Tiara and take the Elemental Chaos Rings that she's obtained from Tails' Workshop? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles' Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

When we last left off on the Goddess of Destruction, Dr. Robotnik, in an effort to prevent Project EG-005 from being destroyed in her inactive state, decided to unleash an old creation of his, which had originally been shut down due to its faulty programming and destructive tendencies. This creation was none other than Amy Rose’s mechanical doppelganger, Mecha Amy. Although she had adjustments done to her programming, she still wasn’t entirely obedient, until Robotnik threatened to shut her down again. Before leaving to settle his score with Metal Sonic Version 3.0, Metal Sonic warned Shadow and company about Mecha Amy’s destructive power, as well as her ability to absorb bio-energy. From there, Omega has decided to take it upon himself to stop Mecha Amy on his own, since he had no bio-energy for her to absorb.

While Omega was busy squaring off against her, Shadow and Squash decided to move on to continue their search for EG-005’s capsule, as well as Slush’s dimensional card. Not very long after that, they managed to catch up to Dr. Robotnik, who fled the scene not very long ago. After a small conversation, the doctor decided to use Nega’s camera on Shadow and Squash, effectively transporting them within Slush’s dimension. As it turns out, the two of them had planned this all along, and decided to bail themselves, as well as Slush out of the dimension by creating a space-time rift via Chaos Control. After they escaped, they found themselves with the Ice Cap Zone, where Charmy Bee and the Water Goddess, Splash were searching for the next Elemental Chaos Ring.

From there, Slush decided to join up with the two of them to search for the Chaos Ring, while Shadow and Squash return to Robotnik’s base to continue their search for EG-005. Eventually, the trio managed to obtain the Ice Element Ring, thanks to the assistance of Bark the Polar Bear, who happened to find it while he was out fishing Elsewhere, at the Mushroom Hill Zone, Espio the Chameleon and Honey the Cat have managed to find the Leaf Element Chaos Ring, but before they had the chance to obtain it, they were interrupted by the Lightning Goddess, Shock, who challenged the duo to a race, stating that the winner will be free to walk away with the Elemental Chaos Ring. Will the two of them be able to successfully outrun Shock, whose speed rivals that of even Sonic the Hedgehog’s? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Shock: *Has a smug-looking smirk on her face* As far as I can tell, the two of them aren’t nearly as fast as Sonic, so I’ll be able to win this race with no problem, even without going at full speed! *Notices them zoom right past her*

WHAT!? How did they…!? Okay, it looks like I WILL have to take things up a notch after all! *Speeds up*

Little ways from there…

Honey: So far, so good. Wouldn’t you say, Espio?

Espio: Yes, but we shouldn’t let our guards down just yet. Shock is the Lightning Goddess, so staying ahead of her won’t be very easy from here on out.

Shock: *Somewhere behind them* You got THAT right, buddy! *Runs past them* See you at the finish line!

Honey: Oh, no, you don’t! *Gets ready to run after her*

Espio: Hold on a second! *Tugs against the Combi-Ring*

Honey: What is it?

Espio: We’ll have a much better chance of catching up to her by charging the Combi-Ring’s power.

Honey: Uh, okay. How do we do that?

Espio: It’s simple. I’ll hold my position from here, while you get a running start, stretching the ring-star elastic as far as it could go. After the charge is complete, I’ll withdraw from this position, and the two of us will be able to spring forth with incredible speed!

Honey: Ah, I see! So, this works kind of like a rubber-band, right?

Espio: Yes, something like that. This technique certainly came in handy for me and the rest of the Chaotix during the old days, when the Newtrogic High Zone still existed.

Honey: Alright, then let’s go ahead and do it before Shock gets any further!

With that said, Espio and Honey began charging the Combi-Ring’s power, and used it to give themselves another boost of speed, effectively catching up to Shock in the process.

Shock: HAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, yes! I’ve definitely won this race, hands down! I’ll admit the two of them were a lot faster than I thought they’d be, but it just doesn’t compare to my own. What a shame, I was really starting to enjoy myself, too… *Notices them* HOW IN THE-…!?

Espio: Why are you so surprised? I thought you would have learned after getting overconfident the first time this happened.

Shock: Ah, very good, very good! I guess I needn’t hold back with you guys after all.

Honey: Wait, you’re saying that you’ve been holding back up until now?

Shock: That’s right.

Espio: Don’t hold back on our account. Why don’t you show us what you’re truly capable of?

Honey: Are you sure this is a good idea, Espio?

Shock: Your girlfriend’s right, you know. When it comes to speed, you don’t want to see ME serious.

*They begin to blush*

Espio: …I REALLY wish everyone would stop saying that!

Honey: Same here! We’re just friends, there’s nothing going on between us at all!

Shock: Oh, there isn’t? Even so, the two of you clearly have feelings for each other, since you started blushing as soon as I brought it up.

Honey: Can we get back to the race, please!?

Espio: You took the words right out of my mouth!

Shock: Okay, okay. Anyway, as I was saying before, are you sure you want to race ME at full speed?

Espio: It’s better this way. When it’s all finished, neither of us will have any regrets in the end.

Shock: …

Well, alright. If that’s what you want. Just remember, I warned you! *Performs an electrical speed boost (similar to Sonic’s Boost technique from the Rush games, Unleashed, Colors, and Generations)*

Honey: Ahhhh! How are we supposed to keep up with THAT kind of speed!? We barely manage to catch up to her the last two times!

Espio: Conveniently for us, there’s a horizontal spring that we could use to give us additional speed after charging the Combi-Ring’s power again.

Honey: Oh, good, so we still have a chance, then! Let’s not blow it!

In an effort to keep up with Shock’s lightning fast speed, Espio and Honey charged the Combi-Ring’s power once again, pushed against the red spring, and launched themselves forward.


Espio: We’re not much further! I can see Shock straight ahead from us!

Shock: *Looks back* Oh, crap! These two are really something else, but there’s no way they’re going to beat me! *Shoots an electric orb behind her to slow them down*

Honey: Look out!

*They dodge*

Shock: Shoot, I missed!

Honey: Hold on a second… Isn’t that cheating!?

Shock: Not at all. Besides having to hand over the Elemental Chaos Ring to the winner, there are no rules. I’m just doing whatever I need to in order to slow my opponent(s) down. You two have shurikens; feel free to use them if you want.

Espio: Alright, I guess that clears things up.

*They toss shurikens at her*

Shock: *Blocks them with her ring bracelets*

Elsewhere, at Tails’ Workshop…

*Charmy, Splash, Slush, and Bark enter*

Charmy: Hey, you guys, look! We found the Chaos Ring! *Holds it up*

Tails: Nice work, you guys!

Heavy: Yes, excellent. Now three rings can be used to test the machine when Tiara’s father and his assistant are finished with it!

Ray: Speaking of a which, where is she, anyway? I thought for sure that she’d be here by now.

Tails: I don’t know, but I’m sure she’ll show up eventually.

Charmy: Hee hee, “bee here by now”. Get it? *Snickers*

Splash: *Giggles*

Seedra: Nice one!

Heavy:  Oh, wow. That was SO funny, I forgot to laugh.

Charmy: *Sticks his tongue at Heavy*

Splash: Still being a prick, I see.

Pffft…! “Beeing a prick”! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!


*Everyone sweatdrops*

Heavy: …Idiots.

Tiara: *Enters* Hey, you guys. Sorry I’m late. I would have been here sooner, but I got hungry on the way and decided to make a pit-stop at the chili dog stand. You wouldn’t believe how long the line was!

Tails: It’s okay. In any case, we’re glad you could make it.

Charmy: Hee hee hee… By the way, Tiara, guess what! Did you know that there’s another girl around who has a crush on Sonic?

Seedra: …!

Tiara: Wait, are you serious!? You mean someone OTHER than that Amy brat, right?

Charmy: Hee hee hee, yep!

Ray: Oh, boy…

Seedra: (Oh, no… He’s talking about me, isn’t he!?)

Tiara: (Great, that’s JUST what I need…ANOTHER romantic rival.) Well, alright, who is it?

Wait a second… It’s that human princess, isn’t it!?

Charmy: Human princess?

Tiara: Yeah, the red-haired girl we saw last week, when we traveled ten years back into the past while trying to convince Squash that Mephiles was using her. What was her name again? Elise, or something like that?

Charmy: Ah, now I remember! But that’s not who I’m talking about. I meant someone else, and that person just-so-happens to be-

Seedra: *Glares at Charmy from the corner of her eye*

Tiara: It happens to be WHO?

Charmy: *Notices Seedra* Umm, nevermind. ^^;;

Tiara: Then what, may I ask, was the point in even bringing it up in the FIRST place?

Ray: So, umm… You’re still here for the Chaos Rings, right?

Tiara: Ah, yeah, I almost forgot! I was supposed to be bringing them back to my father’s lab, so that he and Professor Porkenstein will be able to test the machine right away when it’s finished! Where are they, anyway?

Tails: We’ve got ‘em right here. *Points*

Tiara: Ah, okay. Thanks. *Grabs them* I’ll be back once the others come back with the next four. *Leaves*

Seedra: *Glares at Charmy again*

Charmy: …What?

Seedra: Oh, don’t even try it! You were about to blurt out to Tiara that I was the other girl with the crush on Sonic! What were you THINKING!? What’s WRONG with you!? Do you just ENJOY humiliating people, or what!?

Charmy: Hey, it’s not like I actually told her who it was!

Seedra: Maybe, but you definitely would have had I not been standing here!

Charmy: No, I wouldn’t!

Seedra: Yes, you would. I wouldn’t put it past you.

Slush: Wow, Seedra. I never would have guessed that YOU were one of the people after Sonic!

Tails: Me neither!

Bomb: I don’t think I would have guessed it, either, but out of the three people who are, at least she’s the sane one.

Heavy: Good point.

Seedra: Umm, can we chance the subject, please?

Meanwhile, outside…

*Tiara comes across Team Rose, who are on their way to Tails’ Workshop*

Tiara: Hmm? *Looks at Cream, Cheese, Chocola, Big, and Froggy* Oh, hi there.

Cream: Hello.

Cheese & Chocola: Chao, Chao!

Big: Hi.

Froggy: *Croaks*

Tiara: *Notices, Amy, too* Amy.

Amy: Boobowski.

*They both give each other a “Hmph!” and Tiara walks off afterwards*

Big: I guess they still aren’t getting along very well…

Cream: Well, I guess that's only natural, since they're both in love with Mr. Sonic...

Back at the Mushroom Hill Zone, the race between Espio, Honey, and Shock was still going on, with the three of them blasting through the area at high speed, side-by-side in an attempt to outrun one another. The race continued for some time, until Shock accidentally tripped on the Combi-Ring’s “elastic”. As a result, Espio and Honey were able to pass her and cross the finish line, thus winning the race.

Shock: NOOOO! How could I lose!?

Honey: Alright! We did it, Espio!

Espio: Yes, that was a close one!

Honey: *Walks over to Shock* Are you okay? *Holds out her hand*

Shock: Yeah, I’m fine. Nothing’s bruised, other than my pride.

*Honey helps her up*

Shock: Well, it looks like you’ve beaten me fair and square. The Elemental Chaos Ring is yours for the taking. *Holds it out*

Espio: Thank you. *Takes it*

Shock: Boy, I could tell the doc’s not gonna be very happy about this… He’ll chew me out for sure…

Espio: Maybe it’s about time you’ve stopped taking orders from him, like Seedra suggested a week ago.

Honey: Yes, you really should.

Shock: Storm and I are still giving it some thought.

Honey: Alright, well take your time.

Shock: I’ll be on my way now, but before I go, just know that you won’t be so lucky next time we race! *Takes off*

Espio: I guess we should be on our way, as well. Let’s get this Chaos Ring over to Tails’ Workshop. He’ll probably know what to do with it.

Honey: Right.

*They leave*

Meanwhile, at Robotnik’s Mystic Ruins base…

Robotnik: Scorch, Shock, Storm, Metal Sonic 3.0… At least one of them should have been here by now! What’s taking them so long? Perhaps I’ll try giving them a call to find out what’s going on. I’ll start with Scorch. *Takes out his communicator and contacts her* Scorch, this is Dr. Robotnik. Do you copy?

Scorch: *Picks up* I hear you loud and clear, Doctor. How’s it going?

Robotnik: I was going to ask you the same thing. Have you had any luck in retrieving the Elemental Chaos Ring at the Ice Cap Zone?

Scorch: No, I haven’t. I’ve been searching high and low for it over here, and I have yet to find it anywhere! Are you sure you didn’t make a mistake in the detector readings? Maybe you should double check.

Robotnik: Very well. *Checks the detector* Hmm, how peculiar…

Scorch: What is it, Dr. Robotnik?

Robotnik: I could have sworn that I was detecting an Elemental Chaos Ring at the Ice Cap Zone before, but now, it seems to be located at the Mystic Ruins! According to my readings, three of them are currently on the move right now, as we speak!

Scorch: Seriously!? I wonder how it got there?

Wait a second, could Splash and that bee have found it first while they were over there!? Yes, THAT must have been it! Not worry, though. I’ll go over there and get it, along with the other two in a flash!

Robotnik: Don’t bother, that won’t be necessary. Metal Sonic 3.0 is already on the move for those. There is, however, another Chaos Ring that I’m detecting at the Hydrocity Zone. I’d hate to ask, considering the fact that water is your primary weakness, but would you mind retrieving that one for me?

Scorch: Not at all, just leave it to me.

Robotnik: Alright, thank you.

Scorch: Anything for you, Dr. Robotnik. Oh, by the way… You know how Slush has been missing for the past week, right? Well, I bumped into her not too long ago, here at the Ice Cap Zone!

Robotnik: WHAT!?

I mean, that’s excellent! I’m pleased to hear of her safety!

Scorch: So am I. Anyway, I’m heading over to Hydrocity now. I’ll talk to you again later, okay?

Robotnik: Okay. Once again, I’m counting on you, Scorch!

*They hang up*

Robotnik: She saw Slush at the Ice Cap Zone, she says!? Impossible! I turned her into a card a week ago, I KNOW I did! Metal Sonic 3.0 and I made sure of that! *Reaches into his pocket, takes out the card she was trapped in, and notices that it’s blank* WHAT!? No way! I can’t BELIEVE this! How could she have possibly escaped!? Her card has been in my pocket the entire time!

Hold on a second… This must have been Shadow’s work! I trapped him and Squash within that dimension along WITH Slush, and they must have Chaos Controlled their way out! Ah, well. What’s done is done. My original purpose for trapping Slush was to prevent information about EG-005 from getting leaked to the Chaotix and the rest of those fools, but now that they’re already aware, I guess there isn’t any point to keeping her over there any longer. And besides, I can’t wait to see the look of terror on her face once EG-005 arises! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Anyway, I wonder how Mecha Amy is faring against Omega right now?

Elsewhere within the base…

Omega: *Fires another huge laser beam from his arm cannons*

Mecha Amy: *Holds out the palm of her hands and absorbs it*

Omega: Hmm!?

Mecha Amy: *Fires it back at him*

Omega: UHHHHHHH! *Czzzzzt!* *Gets blown backwards and hits the wall*

Mecha Amy: Hee hee hee!

Omega: I was…under the impression that you were only capable of absorbing bio-energy!? Does not compute!

Mecha Amy: I guess I forgot to tell you… I can use them to reflect energy beams, too. I missed my chance last time, but I didn’t this time around! I guess I didn’t need to tell you that, though! Hee hee hee!

Omega: *Stands up* You are more formidable than I imagined you would be, but the time has come for me to conclude this battle and exterminate you once and for all!

Mecha Amy: Not if I exterminate YOU first, though!

With that said, Mecha Amy turned on her jet booster and dashed towards Omega, trying to hit him with her metallic hammer, but he manages to dodge every hit.

Mecha Amy: Take…THIS! *Swings the hammer again*

Omega: *Grabs the end of the hammer before it hits him*

Mecha Amy: W-WHAT!?

Omega: DIE!

After grabbing the end of the hammer, Omega took one of his hands off of it, spun it around like a drill, and jammed it right through Mecha Amy’s stomach.

Mecha Amy: UHHHHHHHHH!!! *Czzzzzzt!* Y-You… How did you…!? *The red glow in her eyes fades as she shuts off*

Omega: Mecha Amy… Successfully destroyed! *Removes his hand, and Mecha Amy’s body collapses to the floor*

Now, to assist Shadow and Squash in their search for EG-005, assuming they have not located her yet… *Walks away*

Meanwhile, at the Mystic Ruins…

Tiara: This “other girl” that Charmy spoke of… Who could she be? Could there really be someone else after Sonic, besides Amy? Or was he just saying that to be funny? Eh, I’ll find out soon enough. For now, I’d better get these back to the lab. *Notices a laser flying in her direction* WHOA! *Dodges* Alright, who’s there!? Show yourself!

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Hovers down*

Tiara: You again!?

Metal Sonic 3.0: The Elemental Chaos Rings... I strongly advise handing them over.

Tiara: Not a chance! *Takes out her jeweled staff and points it at him*

Metal Sonic 3.0: HAHAHAHAHAHA! What could you possibly hope to do against ME with feeble weaponry like that?

Tiara: You’re about to find out right now! *Charges toward him*

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Stops her with telekinesis*

Tiara: Ghhhhh…! I can’t…move!

Metal Sonic 3.0: Now do you see why it is useless to resist? You don’t stand a chance against me, so be wise and hand them over!

Tiara: Never!

Metal Sonic 3.0: Then perish! *Gets ready to toss her, and then notices something flying toward them* Hmm?

*Metal Sonic drops in between them*

Metal Sonic: So, we meet again, my loathsome copy!

Tiara: Metal Sonic! Boy, am I glad to see you!

Metal Sonic 3.0: Hmm hmm hmm! Well, well… Look who’s decided to show up? *Releases Tiara from his telekinetic grip*

Tiara: Oooof! *Falls flat on her butt*

Metal Sonic 3.0: It would appear as if the time has finally come for us to even the score, don’t you agree?

Metal Sonic: That’s right. This time, I’m going to dispose of you once and for all!

Metal Sonic 3.0: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, now that’s where you’re wrong. You may have gotten lucky during our previous battles, but rest assured, that won’t happen again! You’re going to regret not finishing me off when you had the opportunity, because now I’ve grown even stronger! This time, your chances for victory are virtually non-existent!

Metal Sonic: Well, rest assured, when I defeat you again, you won’t be receiving any mercy whatsoever! This time, I’m determined to put an end to your wretched existence once and for all! *Turns to Tiara* I’ll handle him. You take the Elemental Chaos Rings and get out of here!

Tiara: Oh, right. Thanks. *Runs off*

Metal Sonic 3.0: HAHAHAHAHAHA… She can run all she likes. Dr. Robotnik has the Elemental Chaos Rings’ location on radar, so I could easily track them down again when the time comes! Now, enough talk! Come, you obsolete scum, and meet your destruction!

*They charge towards one another*

So far, four of the Elemental Chaos Rings have been obtained, but there are still three more for our heroes to find. Also, the inevitable rematch between the two Metal Sonics has finally begun! Which of the two machines will come out the victor? Find out in the next exciting chapter of The Goddess of Destruction!

To “bee” continued…

Part 12

Last time, on Elements of Power, Espio the Chameleon and Honey the Cat competed against the Lightning Goddess, Shock in a race for the Elemental Chaos Ring at the Mushroom Hill Zone. It was a close race that went on for quite some time, but in the end, Shock ended up tripping over the Combi-Ring’s “elastic”, thus making Espio and Honey the winners. Afterwards, Shock stayed true to her word and relinquished the Leaf Element Chaos Ring as promised. Elsewhere, at Robotnik’s Mystic Ruins base, E-123 Omega continued his battle against the newly-activated Mecha Amy, and emerged victorious in the end. After she was defeated, Omega decided to proceed onward and assist Shadow and Squash in their search for EG-005’s incomplete, encapsulated body.

In the meantime, Dr. Robotnik was curious as to why his associates were taking so long to deliver even one Chaos Ring to his base, and decided to contact Scorch, asking whether or not she’s made any progress in locating the one that was said to be at the Ice Cap Zone. Unfortunately for him, she was unable to find it, due to the fact that Bark the Polar Bear had already given it to Charmy and Splash, who’ve decided to bring it over to Tails’ Workshop in the Mystic Ruins. After coming to that realization, Scorch volunteered to retrieve it from them, but Robotnik informed her that Metal Sonic 3.0 was already his way over there to obtain it, as well as the other two, himself. Instead, the doctor asked Scorch to retrieve the Elemental Chaos Ring at the Hydrocity Zone instead. Despite the fact that water is her primary weakness, Scorch took on that mission anyway, without the slightest hesitation.

Elsewhere, Tiara Boobowski had finally made her way over to Tails’ Workshop, and was given the Elemental Chaos Rings to take back to her father’s laboratory, so that he and his assistant, Professor Porkenstein will be able to test out their machine right away after it’s finished. Just as Tiara was on her way back, she was suddenly ambushed by Metal Sonic 3.0, who demanded her to hand over the three Elemental Chaos Rings in her possession. She, of course, was unwilling to give them up without a fight, and began charging towards the machine with her jeweled staff. Unfortunately for Tiara, she stopped via telekinesis, and just when Three-Point Zero was getting ready to toss her, the original Metal Sonic arrived on the scene to challenge his doppelganger to a rematch. The question remains: Which of the two Metal Sonics will come out the victor this time around? Will the rest of the heroes be able to retrieve the remaining three Elemental Chaos Rings before Robotnik and his associates can? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

*Both Metal Sonics dash towards one another, grab each others’ hands, and start wrestling*

Metal Sonic 3.0: You worthless piece of outdated trash! I’ll rip you to PIECES! *His eyes begin to glow red*

Metal Sonic:  *Notices* Hmm!?

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Fires an eye laser at him*

Metal Sonic: *Ducks under it, and tackles Three-Point Zero*

*They roll around the ground, fighting with a smoke cloud over them (like in cartoons)*

Meanwhile, little ways from there…

*Espio and Honey return from Mushroom Hill with the Elemental Chaos Ring and notice the battle*

Espio: Hmm, it looks as if those two are going at it again.

Honey: Yeah, I see. Unless Three-Point Zero happens to spot us with the Chaos Ring, it’s probably best that we don’t get involved.

Espio: Why not?

Honey: Because he’d throw a fit over it, that’s why! Just like he did when we tried helping him out during his LAST fight against Three-Point Zero… It seems to me as if he would have rather died than accept help from any of us, even when he actually needs it!

Espio: Hmm, good point. That’s just how Metal Sonic is, I suppose…stubborn and full of pride. Either way, I’m sure he’s perfectly capable of handling Metal Sonic 3.0 on his own, as long as he doesn’t undergo another transformation like he did a week ago.

Honey: Yeah, I guess you’re right. Let’s keep moving. Tails’ Workshop isn’t too far from here, if I remember correctly.

*They go*

Meanwhile, at the Sandopolis Zone, Knuckles and Rouge were still in the process of venturing through the scorching hot desert in search of the Stone Element Chaos Ring, which was said to be in the area. As the two of them followed the signal of Tails’ emerald detector, it ended up leading them to the remains of a broken pyramid.

Knuckles: *Wearing his cowboy hat from the Sonic OVA* Well, this is it. According to the detector readings, the Chaos Ring should be buried underneath here somewhere…

Rouge: Most likely. By the way, isn’t this the same pyramid we were at before? You know, the one Mephiles destroyed a week ago?

Knuckles: Yeah, this is definitely the same place, there’s no mistake about it. Speaking of Mephiles, I just couldn’t have been any happier to finally say good riddance to him. Here’s hoping we’ll never have to hear from that lunatic again.

Rouge: You said it, but that’s enough about him for now. Why don’t we start digging for the Chaos Ring?

Knuckles: Good idea. *Takes out the Shovel Claws*

*They start digging around the pyramid’s remains*

Rouge: I got it! *Holds it up*

Knuckles: And another one bites the dust! It looks like our work here is done. Come on, let’s bring it over to Tails’ Workshop.

Rouge: Nah, that won’t be necessary. I think I’ll hold on to it, instead. Something like this would make a nice addition to my jewel collection. Don’t you agree?

Knuckles: Heh heh, some things never change, do they?

Rouge: *Gently rubs his face and talks with a flirty tone* You don’t mind, do you?

Knuckles: *Blushes* Uh, well, I, uh… I guess not…

Just then, before any of them had the chance to know what hit them, the Elemental Chaos Ring was suddenly snatched out of Rouge’s hand by a stretching, mechanical grabber-claw.

Rouge: Huh!?

Knuckles: What the...!? *Looks up and spots the Egg –O- Matic Hovercraft* Robotnik! I should’ve known!

Egg-Robo: Wrong! Hee hee hee! Well, if it isn’t my old nemesis, Knuckles!

Knuckles: Oh, so it’s YOU again, huh!?

Rouge: And you are…?

Egg-Robo: Who am I, you’re asking? I am Egg-Robo, a faithful servant of the great Doctor Ivo Robotnik! I am the first and foremost brilliant of all the Egg-Robos he’s created! My genius, for the most part, is unrivaled, second only to the doctor himself!

Knuckles: Your intelligence is second only to Robotnik’s, you say? I guess that means you aren’t very smart, then.

Egg-Robo: Oh? Hee hee hee! This is coming from YOU, of all people? The same person who was gullible enough to believe nearly every lie he’s ever been told, regarding the fact that Sonic was after the Master Emerald?

Knuckles: What’d you say!?

Egg-Robo: I’m saying that you’re the very thing that defines the word “gullible”! If I were to look that up in the dictionary, I knows exactly whose picture I’d find! Hee hee hee!

Knuckles: *Angrily waves his fist* Why don’t you come down here and say that to my face!? I dare you!

Rouge: Yes, and while you’re at it, hand over the Chaos Ring you’ve taken from us!

Knuckles: Yeah, you thief!

Egg-Robo: I think not. You’re the real thieves here; Dr. Robotnik is only reclaiming what is rightfully his! Anyway, I would love to stay here and chat with you some more, but I’m afraid I don’t have that kind of time. The doctor is eagerly awaiting the delivery of this Chaos Ring, so I’m just going to leave you to THESE guys for now. Egg-Robo Squadron, come forth! *Presses a button*

*A bunch of other Egg-Robos warp into the area, wielding laser guns and jetpacks*

Egg-Robo: And with that, I bid you farewell for the time being! Hee hee hee hee! *Flies off*


Just as Knuckles was getting ready to run after him, the Egg-Robo Squadron blocked his path, pointing their laser guns right at him.

Knuckles: Alright, fine! If getting through all of YOU is what it’s gonna take to get to the main Egg-Robo, then so be it! *Cracks his knuckles*

Shortly afterwards, the Egg-Robo Squadron began firing their laser guns at Knuckles and Rouge, but the two of them managed to dodge and started attacking the Badniks with powerful punches and kicks, breaking them apart one by one. This pattern continued for a while, until the duo decided to end it by using the Thunder Arrow and Black Wave techniques to destroy the remainder of them.

Rouge: Hmph! Those guys weren’t so tough!

Knuckles: That’s for sure. Now that they’re out of the way, we could focus on finding the main Egg-Robo and getting that Chaos Ring back from him!

Rouge: Right. He couldn’t have gotten too far, unless he decided to Chaos Control his way out of this desert…

Knuckles: There’s only one way to find out. *Checks the radar* Well, what do you know? He’s still here! Come on, let’s get him!

*They take off*

Elsewhere, the battle against the Metal Sonics continued, getting more and more intense after each second that went by. The two machines were truly going at it, matching each other blow-for-blow with intense punching and kicking combos, energy blasts, and so forth. Throughout the course of their battle, they were unable to stay in one place, and eventually found themselves at Station Square.

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Lifts a bunch of objects with telekinesis* Die, you obsolete scum! DIE! *Launches them at Metal Sonic*

Metal Sonic: *Dodges them and Homing Attacks Three-Point Zero*

Metal Sonic 3.0: Ooooof! *Czzzz!* *Falls over*

Just when Metal Sonic was getting ready to strike him with a second Homing Attack, Three-Point Zero quickly held out the palm of his hands, and used his powers to trap Metal Sonic within a psychic energy field, constricting him of any movement.

Metal Sonic: Ghhh…! What’s going on!? I can’t…move! Is this…more telekinesis!?

Metal Sonic 3.0: It’s a new technique I’ve developed for the sole purpose of destroying you! Thanks to the data that I’ve obtained from Silver the Hedgehog some time ago, I was able to create it with psychic energy, rendering you immobile! *Kicks the energy field away*

Metal Sonic: Uhhhhhhh!

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Rushes towards the energy field, stops it before it hits the ground* I could easily put an end to your pitiful existence right here and now if I wished, but before then, I just thought I’d amuse myself a little! *Kicks it again*

Metal Sonic: Uhhhhhhhhh!

Metal Sonic 3.0: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *Continues kicking it around* In case you aren’t aware, this energy field will explode upon contact with anyone or anything other than myself, so you’re quite fortunate that I have this kind of speed!

Metal Sonic: You…!

Metal Sonic 3.0: What’s the matter? Are you feeling angry? Humiliated? Fool! You don’t know what TRUE humiliation is! *Kicks it again*

Metal Sonic: UHHHHHH!

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Jets over there and catches it* I am Metal Sonic Version Three-Point Zero, designed by Doctor Nega to be the most powerful machine in existence! I was created from your design, yes, but I was a vast improvement, created with technological advancements that far exceed anything found in THIS era! But still, despite all of this, the unthinkable happened… I ended up suffering not one, not two, but THREE defeats by YOUR hands! You can’t even BEGIN to comprehend the embarrassment I felt, having been cast aside by someone I was designed to be superior to! You are nothing more than an inferior, obsolete trash model, and yet somehow, you still emerged victorious over me all those times! The shame and humiliation of losing to a weakling like YOU was too much to bear… It wounded my pride so deeply, that I would have gladly chosen death over it!

Metal Sonic: …

Metal Sonic 3.0: Well, the time has come for me to exact my revenge, and reclaim my title as the most powerful machine the world, no, the UNIVERSE has ever known! *Holds out the palm of his hand and lifts the energy field with telekinesis* It’s time for you…to say GOODBYE! *Tosses it*

Meanwhile, at the Station Square Police Station…

Nack: Man, ‘dis stinks! ‘Dere’s GOTTA be a wayda bus’ outta ‘dis joint somehow!

Bean: Yeah. If those idiot police officers hadn’t confiscated my bombs, we’d have been outta here a long time ago!

Nack: I swear… One way ‘r anuddah, ‘dat skank’s gonna pay fa’ rattin’ us out to ‘da cops ‘da way she did! What’s woist, is ‘dat she just out-right lied, sayin’ ‘dat WE were ‘de only criminals, when SHE happens ta be a jewel thief ‘erself!

Bean: You got THAT right! What pissed me off about that even more is how Knuckles agreed with us at first, and then he and the rest of those losers started denying it as SOON as the cops showed up!

Nack: I know! Like I said before, ‘dey ain’t nutin’ but a buncha stinkin’ liars! ‘N’ as soon as I get outta here, I gotta bunch bullets wit’ their names written ALL ovah ‘em!

Metal Sonic: *An explosion occurs as he crashes through the wall and lands in their cell* UHHHHHHHHH!!! *Czzzzzt!* *Falls over*

Bean: Huh!? Metal Sonic!?

Nack: What ‘da…!? Where ‘da hell did HE come from?

Bean: Beats me, but who cares? Look! Whoever knocked him in here ended up opening an escape path for us! We’re free!

Nack: HAHAHAHAHA! You’re right! C’mon, let’s scram while we still have ‘da chance!

*They run off*

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Comes in right after they leave and looks down at Metal Sonic* HAHAHAHAHAHA… HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! It’s just as I predicted, the technique was too much for him! That just goes to prove my point that he’s nothing more than an outdated-

Before Three-Point Zero had the chance to finish his sentence, Metal Sonic quickly rose up again, and used Mephiles’ signature piercing beam technique on him (since he obtained data from him at one point), and it protruded right through his chest, just like Seedra’s solar-powered vines did four chapters ago.

Metal Sonic 3.0: UHHHHHHH! *Czzzzzzt!* IM-IMPOSSIBLLLLLLLLE! *Collapses to the floor*

Metal Sonic: Hmph. You just don’t know HOW tired I am of you spouting that “outdated model” nonsense. You’re nothing more than a pale, pathetic imitation with a new coating of paint! As tempting as it is to kill you right here and now, I’m going to let you live a little bit longer. Again, it’s not out of the kindness of my heart, it’s so I could fight you again after you’ve absorbed the Chaos Rings’ power, without any interference. Now, I would recommend getting out of my sight, before I decide to change my mind.

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Rises up* Your…your threats… *Czzzzt!* …are meaningless to me! I’ll… *Czzzzt!* DIE before I allow myself to walk away again with the shame of having been defeated by a weakling like YOU! *Surrounds his fists with fire*

After surrounding his fists with fire (due to the data he’s copied from Scorch and Blaze the Cat), Three-Point Zero, not wanting to accept defeat, charged towards Metal Sonic and started throwing a barrage of punches at him, which he managed to block (thanks to the data he obtained from Iblis). Shortly afterwards, Metal Sonic jammed his fist through the hole in his stomach and started ripping out his circuits and wires, making Three-Point Zero’s lifeless body collapse to the floor once again.

Metal Sonic: Finally…it’s all over now. It’s quite a pity, actually. I gave him one last chance to live, but he blew it. Oh, well. What’s done is done. *Holds out the palm of his hand, aims at Three-Point Zero’s body, and blasts it to pieces*

Robotnik: *Through the walkie-talkie* Come in, Metal Sonic 3.0! This is Dr. Robotnik! Can you hear me? Have you managed to obtain the three Elemental Chaos Rings yet?

Metal Sonic: *Picks up* He is currently unavailable to answer your call, because I have just got finished disposing of him again.

Robotnik: Wait a minute! Who IS this!? Is that YOU, Metal Sonic!?

Metal Sonic: That’s correct. If you’re interested in rebuilding him or uploading his control chip into a spare body, then you can pick up his parts here at the Station Square Police Station. *Crushes the walkie-talkie and breaks contact with Robotnik* In the meantime, I’m going to turn my focus back over to that other imposter, Sonic! *Turns on his jet booster and flies away*

At the Mystic Ruins base…

Robotnik: So, Metal Sonic 3.0 was destroyed in a battle against the original? I suppose that would explain why he’s taking so long to return with those three Elemental Chaos Rings that I’ve detected around Tails’ Workshop! Curses! It’s just as I said before… The moment that the Chaotix and the rest of those fools have found out about the Elemental Chaos Rings, things have suddenly taken a turn for the worse! Speaking of a which… *Turns on the monitor* It’s only a matter of time before Shadow, Omega, and Squash manage to find EG-005 and destroy her while in her inactive state, so before I go to retrieve Three-Point Zero’s control chip, I’m going to have to move her to one of my other bases. Perhaps the one at Sand Ocean!

With that said, the doctor quickly hopped into his trusty Egg –O- Matic Hovercraft, hovered into the air, extended the crane/grabber-claw, and grabbed EG-005’s capsule. After that, he flew over to the transporter, activated it, and teleported it and himself to his Sand Ocean base, where some Egg Pawns were waiting for him.

Robotnik: Ah, Egg Pawns! You’re just who I needed to see! I need you to take this capsule and put it in a safe place, so that my enemies will be unable to find it and destroy EG-005 in her inactive state. Can you do that for me? *Releases the capsule from the grabber-claw*

Egg Pawns: As you command, Dr. Robotnik! *They salute*

*They push the machine away*

Robotnik: Now, to make a trip to the future…

Meanwhile, at the Sandopolis Zone…

Knuckles: End of the line, Egg-Robo!

Rouge: Hand over that Chaos Ring!

Knuckles: Or we’ll take it back by force!

Egg-Robo: Hee hee hee! I was hoping you’d say something like that! *Presses a button and makes the Checker-Wrecker Ball (from Sonic 1) extend at the bottom of the Egg –O- Matic and swings it at them*

Rouge: Look out!

*They jump out of the way, and then attack the cockpit*

Egg-Robo: GAH! *Czzzzt!* Well, try THIS on for size! *Presses a button. makes it swing rapidly in a horizontal direction, and moves toward them*

Knuckles: W-What the…!? *Gets hit* Uhhhhhhhh! *Falls over*

Rouge: Ahhhhhh! *Gets hit and falls over, too*

Egg-Robo: Hee hee hee hee! *Presses a button to retract the Checker-Wrecker Ball, and starts dropping bombs (with Robotnik’s face on them) from the bottom of it, instead*

*Knuckles and Rouge start dodging them, and craters get blown in the ground*


*Each of them manage to catch one of the bombs*

Egg-Robo: WHAT!?

Rouge: Knuckles, whadda ya say we give him a taste of his own medicine?

Knuckles: That’s fine by me! *Tosses the bomb at Egg-Robo*

Rouge: *Does the same*


*The bombs explode upon contact with the Egg –O- Matic and send Egg-Robo flying*


Knuckles: I guess that takes care of him! For now, at least.

*The Elemental Chaos Ring drops*

Rouge: *Catches it* Again, you don’t mind if I hold onto this, do you?

Knuckles: …

Well, I suppose it’s safer in your hands than it is in Robotnik’s. Without all seven of the rings, he can’t complete EG-005.

Rouge: Thank you. You’re so sweet. *Kisses him on the cheek*

Knuckles: *Blushes*

Meanwhile, at Windy Valley…[/i]

Vector: Any sign‘ve it yet, Wechnia?

Wechnia: Still not picking anything up, I’m afraid.

Vector: Y’know, this woulda be MUCH easier had Knuckles told us EXACTLY where it was before goin’ our separate ways!

Wechnia: Indeed. *Looks up* Hmm?

Vector: What’s the matter? Somethin’ botherin’ ya?

Wechnia: Look up there… *Points* That’s Storm, the Wind Goddess, isn’t it?

Vector: *Looks* Yep, that’s her, no doubt about it! What’s that she’s holdin’ in her hands? It looks like…the Elemental Chaos Ring! So THAT’S where it is!

Wechnia: If we hurry, we should still be able to catch her!

*They run after her*

A little while later…

Storm: Hmm? What’s that noise? *Looks back* Two members of the Chaotix team are here? I should have figured… *Hovers down to the ground and waits for them*

*They catch up to her*

Storm: Why, hello there, gentlemen. It looks like we meet again…

Wechnia: …

Storm: Somehow, I doubt the two of you are here by coincidence. I’ll take it that you’re after the Elemental Chaos Ring as well?

Vector: You got it, sistah!

Storm: I thought so. You’re free to have it…if you can take it from me, that is.

Wechnia: I figured that’s where you were going with this. We’re ready anytime you are.

Vector: Yeah, ‘n’ don’t think you’re gonna toss us aside as easily as last time, eitha!

Storm: Before we begin, I’m merely curious about something…

Vector: What is it?

Storm: For the past week or so, Dr. Robotnik has been keeping a low profile concerning the Elemental Chaos Rings and the creation of EG-005. Exactly how did you come to find out about all this?

Vector: We probably wouldn’t ‘ve known if it wasn’t for Slush tellin’ us about it.

Storm: Slush, huh? Speaking of a which, exactly where is she, anyway? I don’t believe I’ve seen her at all since we defeated Dr. Nega in space a week ago

Wechnia: I see that Robotnik’s been withholding information from you.

Storm: Come again?

Vector: Ya wanna know WHY Slush has been missin’ for the past week? ‘Cause Robotnik captured ‘er, that’s why!

Storm: Huh? What for? I could have sworn the two of them were on the same side…

Wechnia: It was merely a charade. Slush was only pretending to be his ally, only as a means of spying on him and informing us with first-hand information about his plans. As soon as Robotnik found out about this, he used Nega’s camera to turn her into a card.

Storm: Wait, so you mean to tell me that SHE’S the one who’s been spying on Dr. Robotnik all this time!?

Vector: You got it!

Storm: Hmm… Come to think of it, I DO remember him being angry with Slush about something last week, yelling from the top of his lungs that she was going to pay for something, but neither I, Scorch, or Shock had any idea what he was talking about, but we didn’t bother to ask. Things are finally beginning to make sense. Thank you for clearing that up.

Vector: No problem.

Storm: Alright. Now, show me what the “White Echidna Project” is TRULY capable of!

Once again, things are beginning to look up for our heroes. So far, a total of five Elemental Chaos Rings have been obtained, and only two more to go. Will Vector and Wechnia be able to defeat the Wind Goddess, Storm, and obtain the sixth Chaos Ring? Who will obtain the final one at the Hydrocity Zone; Mighty and Tikal or Scorch? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Part 13

Previously, on The Goddess of Destruction, Metal Sonic and his doppelganger, Metal Sonic Version 3.0 engaged in yet another epic showdown in order to settle their score and prove once and for all which of the two machines were the strongest. Throughout the course of their intense battle, they flew all over the place via their jet boosters, and found themselves in the city of Station Square. While they were there, Metal Sonic 3.0 accidentally and unknowingly tossed Metal Sonic through the walls of the Station Square Police Station, where the two notorious criminals, Nack the Weasel/Fang the Sniper and Bean the Dynamite were imprisoned. Seeing the opportunity to escape, the two of them made their getaway, while Metal Sonic 3.0 entered the jail cell to see whether or not he finished Metal Sonic off.

After boasting about his supposed “victory”, Metal Sonic used Mephiles’ signature piercing beam attack on Three-Point Zero, dealing a critical amount of damage to his insides. Metal Sonic then decided to give his copy a chance to surrender, but Three-Point Zero refused, preferring to fight to the death instead, in which he did. After blocking Three-Point Zero’s barrage of punches, Metal Sonic jammed his fist through his stomach and yanked out his circuits and wires, leaving Three-Point Zero on the ground, lifeless. Shortly afterwards, Metal Sonic decided to blow his body to pieces, but left his control chip intact. Shortly after Three-Point Zero’s defeat, Dr. Robotnik contacted him via the walkie-talkie, asking whether or not he’s managed to obtain the three Elemental Chaos Rings that resided at Tails’ Workshop. Metal Sonic then responded, telling the doctor that he was unavailable to answer his call, since he had gotten himself killed in battle. Metal Sonic then informed Robotnik that he could pick up Three-Point Zero’s parts, as well as his control chip, at the police station.

Before leaving to obtain the control chip for Metal Sonic 3.0’s spare body, Robotnik decided to bring EG-005’s capsule to his Sand Ocean base in order to prevent Shadow, Omega, and Squash from finding it and destroying her while she’s in her inactive state. Robotnik then told his Egg Pawns to put her capsule in a safe place, in which he did. Elsewhere, at the Sandopolis Zone, Knuckles and Rouge have managed to find the Stone Element Ring, but shortly after they did, the newly-resurrected Egg-Robo took it from them, and left his squadron to deal with the duo, but they managed to wipe them out with ease. After that, they chased Egg-Robo and engaged him in battle. He tried attacking them with Robotnik’s Checker-Wrecker Ball weapon, as well as bombs, but he wounded up defeated in the end, with Knuckles and Rouge reclaiming the Elemental Chaos Ring.

Meanwhile, at Windy Valley, Vector and Wechnia have stumbled upon the Wind Goddess, Storm, who happened to have the next Elemental Chaos Ring in her possession. After a small conversation, Storm challenged the two of them to a fight, stating that she’ll gladly relinquish the Wind Element Ring if they defeat her. So far, five of the Elemental Chaos Rings have been obtained, and there’s only two more to go. Do Vector and Wechnia have what it takes to defeat Storm? Will Mighty and Tikal manage to find the Chaos Ring at the Hydrocity Zone before Scorch does? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Storm: *Starts using her wind powers to make the winds blow slightly stronger*

Vector: Ah, crud! Not again!

*They get pushed back a little*

Wechnia: Ghhhh…! *Starts moving against the wind current to resist*

Vector: *Does the same*

*They continue resisting and begin moving closer to Storm*

Storm: Hmm, very good. What do you say we take things up a notch or two?

Vector: WHOA!

*They get blown back again*

Vector: Great, that’s JUST what we need! This is like last time all ovah again!

Wechnia: Yes, but losing isn’t an option this time around, since the Elemental Chaos Ring is on the line. We need to think of a way to approach her somehow.

Vector: Why don’t ‘cha use that Chaos Fist move, or whatever? ‘N’ while she’s caught off guard, that’ll be a good opportunity to attack!

Wechnia: It’s worth a try. *His fist glows green* Chaos…! *Raises it in the air* …FIST! *Slams it on the ground and creates a shockwave*

Storm: W-What!? *The winds stop momentarily as she begins to lose her balance*

Wechnia: Now, Vector!

Vector: *Runs toward Storm and uses his shoulder-bash ability*

Storm: Uhhhhhhh! *Falls over*

Vector: Got ‘er!

Wechnia: Yes, but let’s not let our guards down just yet. From here, the battle has only just begun...

Storm: *Still laying down* …

Vector: Uh, Storm? You a’ight ovah there? I couldn’t‘ve hurt ‘cha that bad, could I?

Storm: …

Wechnia: Precisely. There’s no way you could have been defeated that easily. Why don’t you get on your feet, so we could continue? Or is this your way of surrendering? If so, then we’ll just take that Elemental Chaos Ring and be on our way.

Storm: …

*Sits up and gets back on her feet*

Vector: Now THAT’S more like it!

Storm: I’ll admit, you caught me by surprise for a second there, but rest assured it won’t happen again. *Start spinning around until she literally turns into a tornado*

Vector: Uh oh… This can’t be good!

After spinning around several times and turning into a tornado, Storm dashed towards Vector and Wechnia with incredible speed. Although they were able to dodge, the strong winds from Storm’s tornado was enough to blow the two of them backwards, sending the duo crashing into the wall behind them.

Vector: Holy crap, how’d THAT happen!?

Wechnia: It must have been the tornado’s after-effect…

Storm: Take… THIS! *Holds out the palm of both hands and fires two tornadoes, one from each hand*

*Vector and Wechnia move out of the way*

Storm: *Sends another one toward them*

Vector: Crud! How many o’ those is she gonna make!?

Wechnia: I have an idea! *His eyes and fists glow green again* Chaos… CONTROL!

*Freezes the tornadoes in time*

Storm: W-What!?

Using the powers that he inherited from the Master Emerald, Wechnia was able to successfully freeze Storm’s tornadoes, as well as the rest of the air current around them in time. Shortly afterwards, he ran straight towards her, delivering a powerful uppercut to the Wind Goddess, which sent her crashing through the wall behind her.


Vector: Nice one!

Elsewhere, at the Hydrocity Zone…

Scorch: *Descends from the air, lands, and looks around* So, this is the Hydrocity Zone. Not a bad-looking place, not at all. In fact, if it weren’t for the water, I’d probably go so far as to even say that I like it. *Walks over to the ledge and looks at her reflection in the water* Wow, am I good-looking, or what? Honestly, is it even possible for me to get any prettier? No matter how many times I see it, even I find my beauty almost overwhelming. It’s amazing how thousands of years have gone by, and yet time still hasn’t robbed me of my girlish figure and youthful appearance. Oh, Scorch… You are, indeed, the very thing that defines true beauty! *Suggestive pose*

Ah, right. I almost forgot. I’m supposed to be looking for that Elemental Chaos Ring. Wherever it is, I certainly hope it isn’t in the water. Otherwise, I’ll never be able to get my hands on it! If only one of those Chaotix guys were here, I could just let one of them go through the trouble of getting it, and then take it from them! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA… Yes, sounds like a plan! *Her ears twitch* Wait, what’s that I hear? I think someone’s coming! *Hides around the corner*

Mighty: *Walks by* You’re saying that the Elemental Chaos Ring is around this area somewhere, Tikal?

Tikal: Yes. There’s a strange energy that I’m feeling. I can’t think of anything else it could possibly be.

Scorch: *Peeks* (Well, well… What have we here? It’s Tikal and her boyfriend. How convenient. I was just saying how nice it would be if there was someone around to get the Chaos Ring for me, and here they are! Things are definitely taking a turn for the better, that’s for sure! This is going to be TOO easy! It’ll be like taking candy from a baby! Yes, you two run along now and get that Elemental Chaos Rings for me. The second they come from the surface, I’ll nab it!) *Grins*

Mighty: …

*Starts sniffing the air*

Tikal: Is there something bothering you, Mighty?

Mighty: Is it me, or does it smell like fire around here?

Tikal: *Sniffs* Hmm, you’re right, it does!

Scorch: (Oh, crap! I think they’re onto me!)

Mighty: I wonder why the smell of fire would be here, in an aquatic area? Doesn’t that seem suspicious?

Tikal: Yes, it does, but why don’t we concentrate on getting the Chaos Ring before Robotnik does?

Mighty: Right. We should get going. *Dives into the water*

Tikal: *Same*

Scorch: Whew… That was a close one! For a second there, I thought my cover was about to be blown! I thought for sure that the two of them were onto me, but I guess not. All I need to do now is play the waiting game…

Meanwhile, at Windy Valley, Vector and Wechnia were still having their battle against Storm for possession of the Wind Element Chaos Ring. After the time freeze effects of Chaos Control wore off, the Wind Goddess continued to use powerful wind techniques in an effort to defeat the duo, in an effort to defeat the duo, but each and every time, they managed to stand their ground and prevent themselves from being blown away.

Storm: *Hovers into the air, surrounds her fist with wind current, and dives toward them*

Vector: Hey, Wechnia, can’t ‘cha use that time freeze technique again?

Wechnia: Not at the moment, I can’t. After using it once, I’m unable to do it again for another fifteen minutes.

Vector: That sucks. Well, so much fa that idea, huh?

Wechnia: Not to worry, I still have other methods to use. *His eyes and hands glow green again*

Storm: Ready or not, here I come! *Speeds toward them*

Vector: Ah, crud! Here she comes!

Wechnia: *Abruptly grabs her wind-powered fist before it could come in contact with either of them*

Storm: W-What!? Impossible!

Well, try THIS on for size! *Surrounds her other arm with wind current and throws another punch*

Wechnia: *Grabs that one, too, but ends up getting pushed back by the wind current* Ghhh…!

*They both push against one another*

Elsewhere, 200 years into the future…

*Marine is being chased by an angry Silver and Blaze, since she was caught spying on them again*


Silver & Blaze (at the same time): YOU GET BACK HERE!

*Just then, a blue warphole appears in front of them, which causes the trio to come to a stop*

Marine: Blimey! Look at that, mates! Whadda ya suppose that is?

Blaze: *Looks* From what I gather, someone must be entering this time period through either Chaos Control or a time machine. But the question is, who?

Silver: There’s only one way to find out.

*Robotnik comes through the portal, not noticing the three of them*

Marine: Strewth! It’s him! What’s he doin’ all the way in THIS time period!?

Blaze: I’m not sure, but knowing him, he’s definitely up to something.

Silver: Somehow, it wouldn’t surprise me if that was Dr. Nega in disguise! He must have escaped from the mental institution in the past! That’s the only explanation I could think of as to why “Robotnik” would be in THIS world!

Blaze: You do bring up a valid point, Silver. After all, Nega, for some reason, DOES have a history of impersonating the real Dr. Robotnik. Why don’t we follow him and see what he’s up to?

Silver: Good idea.

After traveling into that era, Dr. Robotnik was bound for Dr. Nega’s base to find another spare body for Metal Sonic Version 3.0, while unknowingly being followed by Silver, Blaze, and Marine. Fifteen minutes later, the four of them arrived at their destination.

Robotnik: Alright, so I’m here. All I need to do now is find the robot production room, where Metal Sonic 3.0’s spare bodies are kept, and then I’ll bring it back into the past and re-upload the control chip.

Silver: *Peeking at him from behind a corner* He’s reviving Metal Sonic 3.0!? Oh, yeah. That settles it. He’s definitely Dr. Nega in disguise, no doubt about it!

Blaze: Indeed.

*Robotnik proceeds through the base, followed closely by Silver, Blaze, and Marine*

Robotnik: Hmm? *Stops* Is someone there? *Looks behind him* That’s strange… I could have sworn that I heard something back there, but I guess I was mistaken. Anyway, the robot production factory isn’t very far from here. I’m going to go ahead and proceed from here… *Flies onward in the Egg –O- Matic*

With that said, Dr. Robotnik proceeded through the base, with Silver, Blaze, and Marine following him, completely unnoticed. Eventually, he managed to make his way into Dr. Nega’s robot production factory, and to the doctor’s surprise, there was only one spare body remaining for Metal Sonic Version 3.0.

Robotnik: What’s this!? There’s only one more left!? How strange… I could have sworn there were others the last time I was here! Could it be that someone’s decided to invade this base and destroy them? I’m putting my money on Metal Sonic, since he seemed to know so much about these spare bodies when I spoke to him through the communicator. It’s either they were destroyed, or moved to another location, as I’ve done with EG-005. Speaking of a which, I’d better go ahead and get this over with so I could proceed with my plans... *Hovers over the spare body, activates the Egg –O- Matic’s grabber-claw, and gets ready to grab it*

Blaze: Hold it right there!

Robotnik: *Startled* B-Blaze! And the two of YOU, as well! What are you doing here!?

Blaze: We’re the ones who should be asking YOU that question, Robotnik.

Silver: Yeah, or should we say… DR. NEGA!

Robotnik: Huh? What are you talking about?

Silver: Don’t play dumb with us! We know for a fact that you’re Dr. Nega in disguise!

Blaze: Yes, it’s quite obvious!

Robotnik: …

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You poor, deluded fools… Are you serious? Are you truly trying to suggest that he and I are the same person? Preposterous!

Silver: Sorry, but we’re not buying it!

Blaze: First of all, “Robotnik”, tell us… What reason would YOU have to come to this time period? Secondly, why would YOU, of all people, be going through all the trouble of trying to resuscitate Metal Sonic 3.0, when he happens to be a creation of Dr. Nega’s? The two of you were enemies again, last time I checked.

Robotnik: …

Silver: So just give yourself up! There’s no doubt in our minds that YOU’RE Dr. Nega!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Do you the two of you have ANY idea how ridiculous you sound? Have you forgotten that Dr. Nega has been taken back to the mental asylum?

Blaze: …

Come to think of it, you’re right, but as far as we know, he could have very well escaped, as he’s done before!

Silver: If you’re not Dr. Nega, then explain to us why you’ve come here, and why you and Three-Point Zero are on the same side!

Marine: Yeah!

Robotnik:  I don’t have the time, nor am I at liberty to explain anything to YOU fools, because quite frankly, I don’t believe this is any of YOUR business! Now get lost!

Blaze: If you truly aren’t him, then you wouldn’t have any reason to be getting so defensive about it.

Silver: Exactly, so you’ve just proved our point!

Robotnik: Hmph, believe what you want, I couldn’t care less. I grow bored of this conversation. Now, if you would excuse me, I have more important matters to attend to, which again, have next to nothing to do with either of you. *Flies past them*

Blaze: Oh, you’re not getting off the hook THAT easily! *Chases after him*

Silver: *Same*

Marine: Hey! Wait for me, mates! *Follows*

Robotnik: *Looks back* ARGH! Quit following me already, you troublesome pests!

Silver: No can do, Nega!

Robotnik: For the last time, you imbeciles, I am NOT him!

Blaze: Nice try.

*They continue chasing him until they get to the room where the time machine is located*

Marine: Looks like it’s the end o’ the line for you, ya chunky ol’ bloke!

Robotnik: HAHAHAHAHAHA… Not quite, you little brat. Why don’t you take a look at what’s behind me? That, if I’m not mistaken, is Dr. Nega’s time machine! All I have to do is set the coordinates, and I’ll be able to make my escape!

Blaze: Wait a minute… Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that the same machine that Mephiles destroyed a week ago?

Robotnik: Yes, it is, but while Nega and I were busy running our “errands”, we’ve decided to fix it, so now it’s good as new!

Silver: I just love how you say “Nega and I” as if you’re not him.

Robotnik: Enough! *Hops out of the Egg –O- Matic, walks toward the machine, sets the machine’s coordinates to 200 years into the past, and activates a portal* HAHAHAHAHAHA! This, my friends, is where we part! From here, I bid you farewell! *Hops back into the Egg –O- Matic and flies through*

Immediately after Robotnik went through, Silver, Blaze, and Marine proceeded through the portal, as well, and traveled 200 years into the past, as intended. However, as with most other time portals, their location was chosen at random. The three heroes found themselves at Tails’ Workshop, while Robotnik, on the other hand, ended up landing somewhere else.

Tails: Ah, hey, you guys! How nice of you to drop by!

*Everyone else says something similar*

Silver: Oh, hello. It’s nice to see you guys.

Blaze: Yes, this is a pleasant surprise. When we chased Dr. Nega through that time portal, we weren’t expecting to end up in this place.

Splash: …

Wait a minute, did I hear that correctly!? Did you say that Dr. Nega’s back!?

Slush: You’ve GOT to be kidding me! How did he escape from the mental institution THIS time!? It was Metal Sonic 3.0, wasn’t it!? I guess now I have another reason to hate him.

Silver: We’re not sure how he escaped, but I don’t think Metal Sonic 3.0 had anything to do with it, since Nega, while disguised as Robotnik, came back to our time period to get a spare body for him.

Tails: Are you sure that was a disguise? Heavy, Bomb, Orbot, Cubot, and I have been watching the news all day, and I don’t remember them saying anything about Dr. Nega’s escape…

Heavy: Yeah. Believe me, had that happened, it would have been front-page news by now.

Blaze: I see. Well, it would appear that Robotnik was telling the truth after all.

Silver: If that was truly the real Robotnik, then why are he and Three-Point Zero on the same side?

Bomb: Robotnik must have reprogrammed him to follow HIS orders instead of Nega’s.

Blaze: Sounds plausible. But still, regardless of his identity, it’s apparent that he’s up to something.

Silver: Yeah. We don’t know what it is yet, but we’ll find out soon.

Marine: Do you think his plan could have something to do with that “Eee-Jee-Whatever” thing that we heard him talkin’ about?

Espio: As a matter of fact, it does. You see… *Explains*

Blaze: So THAT’S it… Robotnik’s in the process of creating a new super being with the combined powers of all Elemental Goddesses, as well as the Chaos Rings!?

Silver: So THAT’S what he was up to!

Marine: Strewth! That’s crazy!

Blaze: Well, whatever it takes, we’re going to stay here for the time being to make sure that Robotnik’s plans won’t come to fruition.

Silver: Yeah. This “EG-005” definitely sounds as if it has the potential to be dangerous…dangerous enough to destroy the world! Needless to say, if this world were to get destroyed, then that would mean the end of ours, as well! Our world was already devastated once before by Iblis’ flames, and we’re not going to let something like this happen again! We’ll never allow Robotnik to ruin the future we’ve all worked so hard to change!

Ray: You probably don’t need to worry about that, since Tiara’s dad and his assistant are working on some kind of machine that’s supposed to remove the elemental powers from the Chaos Rings.

Seedra: Yeah. We have four of them so far, and Knuckles, Rouge, Mighty, Tikal, Vector, and Wechnia should be here with the last three at any moment now.

Blaze: We’re glad to hear it.

Charmy: Hee hee, “bee here with the last three”. Get it? *Snickers*

Splash: *Giggles*

Marine: Good one, mate!

Seedra: Heh heh heh. Yeah, that’s real nice.

*Knuckles and Rouge enter*

Charmy: Hee hee hee, and where were YOU two, hmm? Somewhere making out? *Snickers*

Knuckles: I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: You’re NOT funny, Charmy.

Marine: Can’t say I agree wit’ ‘cha there, mate! I think he’s hilarious!

Heavy: Well, you see, that’s because you’re an idiot.

Splash: Okay, now THAT was uncalled for.

Rouge: So, yeah, anyway, we just dropped by to let you know that we’ve found the Elemental Chaos Ring that we were hunting at Sandopolis. *Holds it up*

Espio: Excellent. That leaves us with only two more to go.

Honey: Yeah. I hope they get back here soon…

Elsewhere again, at Windy Valley…

Storm: I have to admit… You fight quite well. I’d expect nothing less from the White Echidna Project.

Wechnia: Same to you.

*Both Wechnia and Storm continue tugging against one another with their wind and Chaos energies*

Vector: Man, this is gettin’ nowhere fast! I’ve gotta think of a way to end this somehow… *Thinks*

Ah-ha! I’ve got it! *Starts blowing a huge bubblegum bomb*

Storm: *Looks back* (Huh? What is he doing?)

Wechnia: (It looks like she’s let her guard down. I guess now’s my chance!)

After noticing that Storm dropped her guard, Wechnia took the opportunity to use the force of his Chaos energy to shove her backwards, causing the Wind Goddess to come in contact with the bomb and trigger an explosion.


*Smoke clouds the area*

Vector: A’ight! Score one fa us!

*The smoke clears and Storm’s on the ground, blackened up from the explosion*

Storm: Uggggh…

Wechnia: Do you want to continue, or are you ready to surrender?

Storm: …

I’m surrendering. You’ve beaten me fair and square. *Takes out the Elemental Chaos Ring* Here, it’s yours…take it. *Tosses it to Wechnia*

Wechnia: *Catches it*

Storm: …

Wechnia: *Helps her up* Are you alright? We didn’t hurt you too badly, did we? If so, then we apologize. It was nothing personal.

Storm: Don’t worry about it; I’m okay…for now, at least. I don’t think Dr. Robotnik’s going to be very happy about my failure to bring that ring back to him, though. He was really counting on it.

Vector: Like Splash ‘n’ Seedra told ‘ja last week, you don’t gotta take orders from ‘im, y’know. Why not come wit’ us?

Storm: Shock and I are still thinking about it. We’ll let you know once we’ve made our decision.

Wechnia: Alright, we’ll keep that in mind.

Storm: *Flies away*

Vector: ‘N’ anotha one bites the dust! C’mon, let’s bring the Chaos Ring ovah to Tails’ Workshop ‘n’ let everyone know ‘da good news!

Wechnia: Sure thing. Chaos… CONTROL! *Uses the Elemental Chaos Ring to teleport himself and Vector out of the area*

Meanwhile, at the Hydrocity Zone…

*Mighty and Tikal come back up to the surface with the Water Element Ring*

Mighty: Finally! It took a while, but the important thing, is that we’ve found it!

Tikal: I couldn’t agree more. Let’s bring it back to Tails’ Workshop, shall we?

Scorch: *Sneaks up on them and snatches it away from Tikal* Better yet, why don’t you let ME hang on to it?

Tikal: Huh!? Scorch!?

Mighty: Where did YOU come from!?

Wait a minute, the fire scent that I smelt earlier… It was you!

Scorch: You guessed it!

Tikal: So, you’ve just been in hiding all this time?

Scorch: Pretty much. Normally, such a thing would be beneath me, but this time around, I didn’t have a choice. Going underwater to get it myself was definitely out of the question for me, for obvious reasons, so I figured “Why not let some other peon get it for me?” It certainly saved me the trouble, that’s for sure!

Mighty: GRR…

Scorch: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Thanks for the help, you two. I really appreciate it. I couldn’t have done it without you. Dr. Robotnik sends his regards, as well! I’d love to stay and chat, but I have other things to do. Later! *Runs off*

Mighty: Hey, get back here! *Chases after her*

Tikal: *Same*

So far, nearly all of the Elemental Chaos Rings have been retrieved by the Chaotix and company. However, just as Mighty and Tikal managed to find the Water Element Ring, it was suddenly taken from them by Scorch! Will the two of them be able to chase her down to get it back? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Part 14

On the previous chapter of Elements of Power, Vector the Crocodile and Wechnia began their battle against the Wind Goddess, Storm, for possession of the Elemental Chaos Ring at Windy Valley. During the battle, Storm used a variety of different wind techniques on the duo, only for Wechnia to counter them with his Chaos energy, or some other strategy. After a long battle, it finally concluded after Wechnia shoved Storm into the massive, boulder-shaped bubblegum bomb that Vector blew, effectively creating an explosion that weakened the Wind Goddess. From there, Storm accepted her defeat and relinquished the Wind Element Chaos Ring.

Elsewhere, Dr. Robotnik traveled 200 years into the future to retrieve another spare body for Metal Sonic 3.0’s control chip, after he was once again critically wounded in another battle against the original Metal Sonic. As Robotnik was on his way to Dr. Nega’s base, Silver the Hedgehog, Blaze the Cat, and Marine the Raccoon happened to spot him. Under the (mistaken) impression that he was Nega in disguise, the trio decided to follow him and see what he was up to. Just as the doctor was in the process of obtaining the last of Three-Point Zero’s spare bodies, Silver, Blaze, and Marine confronted him, demanding to know what he was up to.

Unwilling to explain anything to them, Robotnik took the spare body and fled the scene, bound for the time machine that Dr. Nega created. After setting the machine’s coordinates, Robotnik took Metal Sonic 3.0’s spare body and went through the time portal, followed closely by Silver, Blaze, and Marine. However, the three of them found themselves at Tails’ Workshop, while Robotnik, on the other hand, was transported to a completely different location. While at the Workshop, everyone explained to the trio what was going on, and three of them volunteered to stay in that time period to fight alongside them once again, and to prevent EG-005 from being created, fearing that she may have the potential to destroy their future as Iblis has once before.

Meanwhile, at the Hydrocity Zone, Mighty the Armadillo and Tikal have managed to find the Water Element Chaos Ring, but unfortunately for them, Scorch ended up swiping it right from under their noses. She then explained to the couple that she didn’t want to risk getting herself killed from going underwater to retrieve the Chaos Ring, so she decided to hide and wait for someone else to get it for her, and then nab it as soon as they did. After mocking them, Scorch quickly took off with the Chaos Ring in hand, but Mighty and Tikal quickly began chasing after her. So far, six of the seven Elemental Chaos Rings have been retrieved by the Chaotix and company, with only one more to obtain. Which side will walk away with the Water Element Ring; Mighty and Tikal, or Scorch? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Scorch: *Flies through the air, launching fireballs at Mighty and Tikal as they chase her*

Tikal: Look out!

*They dodge*

Scorch: *Continues launching fireballs at them*

*They continue dodging*

After she was finished launching the fireballs, Scorch surrounded herself with a fiery aura, and began to give herself a boost of speed. Before she could get any further, however, Mighty quickly took out his Combi-Ring, swung it around like a lasso, tied Scorch’s legs, and pulled her down to the ground.

Scorch: UHHHHHHH! *Falls down, face-first*

Mighty: You’re going to have to do better than that if you hope to escape us!

Scorch: Uggggh… *Unwraps her legs, stands up and turns around* Fair enough. I was getting tired of running anyhow, since that’s not normally my style. I’d rather stand and fight, especially when it comes to facing my old nemesis again.

Tikal: I see that you’re still holding a grudge against me...

Scorch: Trust me, Tikal. While it would be nice to get even with you for sealing me up all those years ago, that’s not what I came here for. I’m just simply keeping the promise I made to Dr. Robotnik. After all, I AM still indebted to him because of what he’s done for me.

Tikal: Tell me something, Scorch… Are you truly content with being a slave to Robotnik? Isn’t there something better that you wanted out of life?

Scorch: What are you talking about? I’m not a slave to Robotnik… I work alongside him entirely out of my own free will!

Mighty: Are you sure you’re working “alongside” him and not FOR him?

Scorch: …

Tikal: As I’ve told you sometime last week, it isn’t too late. You can still free yourself from him.

Scorch: As I’ve told YOU before, that’s completely out of the question. After Dr. Robotnik released me from my thousand plus years of imprisonment, I’ve vowed to do anything to repay the favor, regardless of what it is. Don’t try to talk me out of it; I’ve made a promise to him, and it’s one that I intend to keep, even at the cost of my own life if necessary!

Mighty: I don’t get it… Why would you risk your life for someone like him!? He doesn’t care anything about you! He only sees you as a mere tool that could be used as a means of furthering his goals, pretty much what Squash was to Mephiles!

Tikal: Exactly!

Scorch: That’s not true! How could you possibly lump him with the likes of Mephiles!? Dr. Robotnik’s a great guy! He’s even taken part in saving this world a few times!

Mighty: Yeah, but only for his own selfish reasons, as he himself admitted after we defeated Dr. Nega up at the Doomsday Zone last week. You’re right, he may not be quite as despicable as Mephiles, but at the same time, he’s hardly any better. Evil is evil, no matter how you look at it. In fact, even his first name rhymes with it!

Tikal: I couldn’t have put it any better myself!

Scorch: Be that as it may, I’ve seen a totally different side to him. Plus, other than Splash, and Slush, too, to some extent, he’s one of the first people who’ve ever been kind to me. Back in my day, I was looked down on and considered a freak because of my fire powers. I was literally spat on and taunted by everyone around me and treated as an outcast, simply because I was different… *Wipes her eyes as tears begin to fill them*

Mighty: I… I had no idea…

Tikal: Neither did I. I can’t imagine how terrible that must have been…

Wait a minute, is THAT why you went on that murderous rampage all those years ago…?

Scorch: …

Well, yeah, that was part of it, but enough about that. As I was saying before, I owe everything to Dr. Robotnik. In addition to saving my life, he’s the first, not counting my sisters, to actually treat me like a person. That’s why I must repay him in any way I possibly can! If you want this Elemental Chaos Ring back, then you’re going to have to fight me for it!

Tikal: Well, alright. If that’s what you want.

Scorch: Okay. Ready or not, here I come!

With that said, Scorch surrounded herself with a fiery aura, and dashed towards Mighty and Tikal, getting ready to throw a punch. However, the two of them dodged it before Scorch’s fist could come in contact with them, and since she was moving so fast, she didn’t have enough time to react, and ended up falling into the water.

Scorch: W-WHAT!? OH, NOOOOO! AAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!! *Splashes into the water and begins to sink*

Mighty: Oh, geez!

Tikal: Oh, no! If Scorch remains underwater for any longer, she’ll die! I have to save her!

Mighty: Alright. I’ll pull you both up with the Combi-Ring as soon as you come out.

Tikal: *Quickly dives into the water and goes after her*

Meanwhile, at Robotnik’s Mystic Ruins base…

Squash: Oh, for crying out loud! Where could Ivo have possibly put the stupid capsule!? We’ve been searching around this base for over an hour now, and we STILL have yet to find it anywhere! I’m beginning to think that EG-005 must have gotten moved to another location.

Shadow: You just may be onto something, Squash. After all, the doctor does have more than one base. However, there’s at least one room in this one that we haven’t checked yet.

Omega: The production room, correct?

Shadow: Yes. If EG-005 isn’t in there, then it’ll definitely be safe to assume that the doctor has moved her to one of his other bases to prevent us from destroying her.

Squash: Alright, now why don’t we go check?

*They go to the production room*

Omega: Hmm, there appears to be a plethora of different capsules within the vicinity. One of them is bound to belong to EG-005.

Shadow: Just to save us the trouble of searching through each and every capsule, why don’t you use your scanners to detect EG-005’s bio-energy?

Omega: Initiating interior search… *Activates his scanners*

Squash: Did you find anything?

Omega: Patience.

Squash: Well, alright. Take your time.

A minute later…

Omega: Interior search completed. I was unable to locate any traces of bio-energy within any of the capsules. EG-005’s current location remains unknown.

Squash: So, she’s not in here either? Well, isn’t THAT the surprise of the century?

Shadow: I guess this means we’re going to have to take our search elsewhere.

Hey, wait a minute… What’s this? *Walks over to the computer table*

Omega: *Does the same* These must be the schematics to EG-005’s design.

Shadow: Yes, just as I thought. We may not have been able to find where she was located, but this is definitely the next best thing.

Squash: How so?

Shadow: By studying these blueprints, we’ll be able to find a weakness and use it against her if the doctor somehow manages to succeed in bringing her to life.

Squash: Ah, I see! AH-HA-AH-AH-AH! I guess our search wasn’t a total loss after all!

Shadow: Indeed. *Prints out a copy of the blueprints* Why don’t we bring these schematics over to Tails’ Workshop? I’m sure he’ll know what to do with them.

Omega: Affirmative.

Shadow: *Takes out the green Chaos Emerald* Chaos Control!

*Shadow, Omega, and Squash warp away*

Elsewhere, again at the Hydrocity Zone…

Tikal: *Comes from underwater with Scorch* Don’t worry, I’ve got you!

Mighty: *Throws the other end of the Combi-Ring into the water*

Tikal: *Grabs it*

Mighty: Alright, here goes! *Starts pulling them*

After Tikal grabbed the other end of the Combi-Ring, Mighty was able to successfully pull her and Scorch out of the water, and back onto the surface.

Tikal: Whew… We made it!

Scorch: *Coughs up some water*

Tikal: Are you okay, Scorch?

Scorch: *Coughs up the last of it* I’m… I’m fine now, thanks to you two. But…why, though? Why did you…go out of your way to save me, when we’re…supposed to be enemies? After all, I’ve even tried to kill you at least three other times before now…

Tikal: Maybe, but as I told you during the talk we had last week, we may have had our differences in the past, and you may have made quite a few mistakes in your lifetime, but somehow, I could tell that you aren’t truly a bad person at heart. As such, I have no reason to hold a grudge against you. I never have, in fact. Plus, I don’t think Splash, Slush, or any of the others would have been very happy if something had happened to you…

Scorch: …

I see. Well, you have my thanks. If there’s anything I could do to repay you, just let me know.

Mighty: Don’t worry, it’s not necessary.

Actually, no, there is ONE thing you could do for us.

Scorch: What is it?

Mighty: You could give back the Elemental Chaos Ring that you took from us.

Scorch: But I…

*Sighs* Alright, fine. You win. *Holds it out*

Tikal: *Takes it* Thank you, we appreciate it.

Scorch: Yeah, whatever. *Gets ready to leave*

Mighty: Before you leave, there’s something I’ve been wondering…

Scorch: *Stops and looks back* What is it?

Mighty: EG-005 contains power over all seven elements, right? Well, since she basically has yours and all of your sisters’ abilities wrapped up in one, are you sure that Robotnik will still have any need for you once she’s completed?

Scorch: …

Of course he will. Like I said, he’s been very kind to me so far. Dr. Robotnik and I have an unbreakable bond. I’m not the kind of person to be cast aside like garbage. He’d never do that to me!

Mighty: Alright, if you say so.

Scorch: *Gets a running start and flies away*

Mighty: …You know, Tikal, I’m starting to think Amy, Ray, and Tiara were right about Scorch having feelings for Robotnik.

Tikal: If that’s true, then I pity her. She’s only setting herself up for heartbreak…

Mighty: Yeah. Like Slush said before, I have no idea what she could possibly see in him, but whatever. In any case, though, the Elemental Chaos Ring is finally in our hands! Why don’t we bring it to Tails’ Workshop and let everyone know?

Tikal: Good idea.

After obtaining the seventh and final Elemental Chaos Ring, Mighty and Tikal quickly left Hydrocity, bound for Tails’ Workshop in the Mystic Ruins to let everyone know the good news. With all seven elemental Chaos Rings, as well as the original blueprints for EG-005 that Shadow and the others found, things were really beginning to look up for the heroes. Meanwhile, Dr. Robotnik has returned to his base in the Mystic Ruins after obtaining Metal Sonic 3.0’s control chip.

Robotnik: Well, I’m finally here again. Although I’ve successfully managed to obtain Metal Sonic 3.0’s control chip, as well as another of his spare bodies, I ended up attracting more unwanted attention! It’s already bad enough that Knuckles, the Chaotix, and the rest of those fools have caught wind of my scheme, but now Blaze and HER friends have gotten involved! To add insult to injury, neither Scorch, Shock, Storm, nor Egg-Robo have managed to return yet with a SINGLE Chaos Ring! What’s going on, exactly!? I’d better check the radar… *Activates the detector in his glasses* According to my readings, three of them are already at Tails’ Workshop, and someone seems to be heading over there with a fourth! Three more of them are located off in the distance, on what appears to be North Island. How strange… I wonder how or why they would be over there?

Ah, yes, of course! That’s where the laboratory of Professor Gazebo Boobowski is located! His daughter, Tiara must have been the one who brought them over there! After all, she’s been seen in the company of Sonic and his friends quite a few times recently, so it’s the only logical explanation! Hmm, perhaps I’ll send Metal Sonic 3.0 over there to retrieve them, while Mecha Amy, on the other hand, can retrieve the ones at the Mystic Ruins. That is, if she doesn’t decided to disobey me. *Flies off in the Egg –O- Matic*

Nack: *Comes from around the corner after eavesdropping* HAHAHAHAHA… Did ‘ja hear ‘dat, Bean?

Bean: Yeah, I’m not deaf, you know.

Nack: Whadda ya say we go ahead ‘n’ track ‘dose Chaos Rings, before ‘dem two bolt-buckets o’ his do?

Bean: Good thinking, but how are we gonna get to these places in time before they do? They’ve got jet boosters, and we still don’t have the Marvelous Queen, thanks to that stupid cat girl.

Nack: Simple: We each steal one o’ ‘da doc’s Egg –O- Somethin’ Hovercrafts! I’ll get ‘da Chaos Rings ‘dat ‘da Boobowski goil brought ovah to ‘er dad’s place, while you get ‘da ones at the fox brat’s place.

Bean: Sounds like a plan! While I’m there, I’ll knock them all out with smoke bombs and escape before they even have the chance to know what hit them!

Nack: HAHAHAHA! As always, you’re definitely speakin’ my language, bruddah! ‘Dis time fa sure, we’re gonna be filthy, stinkin’ rich! ‘N’ there ain’t nutin’ ‘dem Chaotix chumps’re gonna do ta stop us ‘dis time! C’mon, let’s go ahead ‘n’ take one o’ ‘da doc’s hovercrafts, so we could bus’ outta ‘dis joint ‘n get ‘dem Chaos Rings before ‘da two junk robots do!

While they still had the opportunity, Nack and Bean went into the garage, and each of them lifted one of Robotnik’s Egg –O- Matic Hovercrafts and took off, bound for Tails’ Workshop and Prof. Boobowski’s laboratory. Meanwhile, at the Workshop…

Sonic: So, THAT’S what’s been going on, huh? Ro-butt-nik’s been trying to bring some new creation of his to life, using these “Elemental Chaos Rings” that he created by accident?

Tails: Yeah, that’s the gist of it. Also, Professor Boobowski and his assistant, Professor Porkenstein have been working on a new machine that’s supposed to remove the elemental powers from the Chaos Rings.

Heavy: Yes, and it was all my idea.

Charmy: …


Vector: Whadda ya laughin’ at now, Charmy?

Charmy: I still think it’s really, REALLY funny how Tiara and her dad have a last name with the word “boob” in it! *Snickers again*

Vector: HAHAHAHA! So do I, actually!

Marine: Same here, mates!

*Everyone sweatdrops*

Espio: Yes, anyway, Tiara should be heading here to pick up the last four Chaos Rings pretty soon.

Amy: Well, when she does, she’d better keep her filthy hands off MY Sonic!

Sonic: *Facepalm* Oh, brother…

Ray: …

Seedra: …

Heavy: Umm, newsflash: He doesn’t like you. Why do you think he’s always going out of his way to avoid you? How long is it going to take for you to get the message already?

Amy: Quiet! Who asked YOU!?

Bomb: You have to admit, though. Heavy may come off as a complete prick ninety percent of the time, but there’s still some truth to what he says.

Amy: …

Sonic: So, umm… Anyway, back to the subject at hand! So far, it looks like the odds are definitely in our favor. Since you guys have managed to find all seven Elemental Chaos Rings, and since Professor B. and his assistant are going to drain the rings of their element-based powers, then there’s no way Ro-butt-nik will be able to complete that project of his!

Tails: Yeah, but I still think that these blueprints that Shadow, Squash, and Omega dropped off will be of use to us, just in case Robotnik finds some other method of bringing EG-005 to life. That way, we’ll be able to use her weakness against her.

Wechnia: That brings us to the question… Exactly what IS EG-005’s weakness, anyway?

Tails: From what I saw in the blueprints, her weakness is…

Before Tails had the chance to finish his sentence, a bomb was suddenly tossed through the window.

Everyone: WHAT THE…!?

Splash: Where did that come from!?

Vector: I dunno where it came from, but we’d beddah get rid before-

*Some knockout gas pours out of it before he has the chance to finish her sentence, and people start coughing*

Blaze: *Coughs* I’ll bet…this is the work of one of Robotnik’s minions!

Bean: *Comes in, wearing a gas mask* Wrong.

Silver: You…! *Coughs*

Bark: Bean! I should’ve known! *Coughs*

Honey: Weren’t you and Fang supposed to be in jail!? *Coughs*

Bean: Yeah, but as you can see, we’ve escaped! Now, while you all enjoy the nice dose of Dynamite Power I’ve given you, I’ll be taking those Elemental Chaos Rings! *Grabs them and takes off*

Rouge: Oh, no you don’t! *Coughs*

Before any of them had the chance to run after Bean, they ended up succumbing to the effects of the knockout gas, and feel to the floor, unconscious. All but Heavy, Bomb, Orbot, and Cubot, that is.

Bomb: Orbot, Cubot! You two stay here; we’ll catch up with Bean!

Cubot: Sher thang, pard!

Orbot: In case you may need Gamma’s help, we’re gonna go to the back room and activate him now, since his adjustments are done.

Heavy: Alright, good.

*Heavy and Bomb grab the Combi-Ring and begin chasing Bean down*

Bean: *Running towards the Egg –O- Matic he arrived in* HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That was too easy! Those Chaos Rings are good as ours! It’s just as Nack said, this time, we’re gonna make a fortune for sure!

Bomb: I wouldn’t count on it!

Bean: *Looks back* Huh!? What the…!? *Stops* I thought you were supposed to have been knocked out-cold!?

Heavy: We’re robots, moron.  Things like that only work on organic beings.

Bean: Bah, whatever.

Heavy: So, who hired you this time? Were you and Nack brainless enough to accept another deal from Robotnik?

Bean: Oh, shut your trap, teapot. We weren’t hired by anybody. We’re taking those Elemental Chaos Rings for ourselves, so we could sell them somewhere and make wads of cash off of it! And there’s nothing any of YOU are gonna do about it!

Bomb: I wouldn’t be so sure.

Heavy: Yeah. Pummeling you will be easier than shooting fish in a barrel.

Bean: Go ahead and try it then, tough-guy! You’ll soon know the TRUE meaning of the words “Dynamite Power”!

Meanwhile, at Professor Boobowski’s laboratory…

Prof. Boobowski: Ah, at least, we’ve done it! The “Elemental Power Extractor”, or “E.P.E” for short, is now complete!

Tiara: Ah, I see! Nice work, Father! You too, Prof. Porkenstein! You two definitely didn’t take as long to make it as I thought you would!

Porkenstein: It probably would have if we were working on it individually. Now, why not head over to Tails’ Workshop? He and the others ought to have found the rest of the Elemental Chaos Rings by now.

Tiara: Right!

Nack: *Kicks the door open and busts into the room* Hiya, chumps!

Tiara: You!?

Prof. Boobowski: Wait, I know this fellow… You’re Fang the Sniper, aren’t you? Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t you get arrested sometime ago?

Nack: You goddit, gramps! Ta ansa ‘de otha question, yeah, but me ‘n’ Bean ended up breakin’ out.

Porkenstein: Why are you here? What is it that you want?

Nack: Ah’m here for ‘dem Chaos Rings, of course! *Points his gun at them* Ya beddah hand ‘em ovah, or bussa cap ‘n all three o’ yas!

Tiara: You just go ahead and try it! *Takes out her jeweled staff* But before we start, why don’t we take this outside?

Nack: …

Well, a’ight then. Wudevah ya want, toots. It ain’t gonna change nutin’, though.

*They leave the building and go outside*

Although the Chaotix and company have managed to obtain all seven Elemental Chaos Rings, four of them have been stolen from them by Bean, and Nack is on the verge of lifting the other three from Professor Boobowski’s laboratory! Now that a majority of the heroes have been put to sleep by Bean’s knockout gas, do Tiara, Heavy, and Bomb have what it takes to stop them on their own? Even if they do, will they be able to stop the newly-resurrected Metal Sonic 3.0 and the dangerous, destructive Mecha Amy, who are also on their way over? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Part 15

When we last left off on The Goddess of Destruction, Mighty the Armadillo and Tikal briefly faced off against the Fire Goddess, Scorch for possession of the seventh and final Elemental Chaos Ring at the Hydrocity Zone. Before then, however, the two of them tried convincing her once more to free herself from Dr. Robotnik, but as with all the other times, their words went unheeded, since Scorch still felt indebted to the doctor for releasing her from thousands of years of captivity. When the battle began, Scorch attempted to attack them, but Mighty and Tikal dodged, causing her to fall right into water. Naturally, being the Goddess of Fire, she’s unable to handle direct contact with water very well, so Mighty and Tikal decided to save her.

Scorch then thanked the two of them for saving her life, and wanted to know if there was anything she could do to repay them. Mighty then told her that she could repay them by giving back the Water Element Chaos Ring that she took from them. Since she was still loyal to Robotnik, she hesitated for a little while before handing it over. After finally obtaining the last Elemental Chaos Ring, the two of them headed back to Tails’ Workshop in the Mystic Ruins. With all seven Elemental Chaos Rings in hand, along with the blueprints of EG-005’s design that Shadow, Omega, and Squash found, as well as the completion of the Elemental Power Extractor, things were starting to look up for the heroes, until Nack the Weasel/Fang the Sniper and Bean the Dynamite arrived on the scene to steal the Elemental Chaos Rings they’ve all worked so hard to collect. The two crooks, after overhearing Robotnik talk about the Chaos Rings’ current locations, decided to split up. Nack headed to Professor Boobowski’s laboratory, while Bean, on the other hand, decided to go to Tails’ Workshop.

While he was there, he threw a smoke bomb through the window, which poured knockout gas that left nearly everyone unconscious, with the exception of Heavy, Bomb, Orbot, and Cubot, who were immune to effects (since they’re robots, rather than organic beings). After Bean made off with the four Elemental Chaos Rings, Heavy and Bomb decided to chase him down, while Orbot and Cubot, on the other hand, decided to stay behind and reactive E-102 Gamma, who has recently undergone some adjustments. Meanwhile, at Prof. Boobowski’s lab, Nack showed up to claim the three Elemental Chaos Rings that Tiara brought over there, but naturally, she was unwilling to give them up without a fight.

With a majority of the heroes unconscious from the effects of Bean’s knockout gas, Tiara, Heavy, and Bomb must face the two crooks alone for the time being. If that weren’t bad enough, the newly resurrected Metal Sonic Version 3.0 and Mecha Amy are also on their way to claim the Elemental Chaos Rings. Will the three of them have what it takes to defeat Nack and Bean, as well as Metal Sonic 3.0 and Mecha Amy? Find out in this exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!

Nack: A’ight, so we’re outside now. Are ya ready ta do ‘dis, ‘r what?

Tiara: I’m ready, but first, tell me something…

Nack: Wha’d is it?

Tiara: First of all, why are you after the Elemental Chaos Rings? Did Robotnik put you up to this? Or was it someone else?

Nack: Nope. Like Ah’m always sayin’, we ain’t got nutin’ ta do wit’ ‘im. Me ‘n’ Bean just happened ta be eavesdroppin’ on ‘da doc, ‘n’ ‘den we hoid ‘im say ‘dat some o’ ‘da rings ‘r’ here, while ‘da rest’ve ‘em ‘r’ at ‘da fox brat’s place. Bean’s gettin’ those, while Ah’m takin’ care o’ bui’ness ovah here. Aftah ‘dat’s all said ‘n’ done, ‘da two’ve us ‘re gonna sell ‘em ‘n’ make a fortune off of ‘em! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I could preddy much see it now… ‘Da two’ve us SWIMMIN’ in a truckload o’ cash! It don’t get no beddah ‘dan ‘dis!

Tiara: I should have figured. One more question… Exactly who is it that you’re planning to sell these to? You’d never think of selling them to Robotnik, would you?

Nack: Maybe I would, maybe I wouldn’t. I really don’t give a crap who’s interested in buyin’ ‘em, as long as ‘dey fork ovah some cash!

Tiara: That’s just what I needed to know. Not that I was ever planning to, anyway, but now that it’s come down to this, I absolutely will NOT let you have them!

Nack: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Fine, have it your way, toots! *Aims his gun at her* Ah’m gonna enjoy pumpin’ ya guts full o’ lead!

Tiara: *Fighting stance*

While aiming his gun, Nack began firing several bullets at Tiara, only for her to dodge or swat them away by twirling her jeweled staff, sending them flying over the horizon.

Nack: Crap! At ‘dis rate, all my ammo’s gonna end up getting’ wasted again!

Tiara: Is that all you’ve got? Some “sniper” YOU are.

Nack: I wouldn’t get so cocky if I was you, sistah! *Puts the gun back in the holster and unsheathes his knife* Ready ‘r not, here I come! *Starts charging toward her* HAAAAAAAAH!

Tiara: HAAAAAAH! *Charges toward him, too*

*They take a swing at one another, and their weapons clash*

Nack: Hand ovah ‘dem rings! *Pushes against her staff*

Tiara: Never! *Pushes against his knife*

As the two of them continued pushing against one another’s weapons, Nack decided to take the opportunity to remove his pistol from the holster once again, and pointed it straight at Tiara’s face, abruptly pulling the trigger in the process. Due to her quick reflexes, she was able to duck underneath it, and trip Nack.

Nack: GAH! *Falls on his back, gets up again, and tackles Tiara*

Tiara: Ooooof!

*They roll around the ground, fighting with a smoke cloud over them (like in cartoons)*

Meanwhile, at Robotnik’s base in the Mystic Ruins…

Robotnik: There, that should do it. Now that the hole in Mecha Amy’s stomach has been patched up, I could go ahead and activate her now, along with Metal Sonic 3.0. *Switches them on*

Metal Sonic 3.0: *Sits up as the red glow reappears in his eyes* …!

Mecha Amy: …! *Does the same* Huh? I’m…still alive? *Looks at her hands* I thought for sure that I was a goner after that big, mean robot drilled that hole through me…

Robotnik: You were, but only temporarily. In addition to patching up that hole in your stomach, I’ve decided to revive you.

Mecha Amy: Oh. *Notices Three-Point Zero, and starts hugging him tightly* Hee hee hee!

Metal Sonic 3.0: What are you doing!? Get off of me! *Jerks away from her*

Mecha Amy: I’ve gotcha now, my darling Metal Sonic! This time, you’re mine…

Metal Sonic 3.0: Wait, what did you call me?

Mecha Amy: Metal Sonic, of course. That IS your name, isn’t it?

Metal Sonic 3.0: No, it isn’t.

Mecha Amy: Since when?

Metal Sonic 3.0: I’m Metal Sonic Version 3.0, or just simply “Three-Point Zero” for short; NOT Metal Sonic. He and I are two entirely different machines. Don’t ever lump me with that weakling.

Mecha Amy: Hey! You take that back! My Metal Sonic isn’t weak!

Metal Sonic 3.0: Yes, he is. He is a worthless piece of outdated trash that happened to get lucky. I am absolutely his superior in every respect.

Mecha Amy: Are not!

Metal Sonic 3.0: Yes, I am!

Mecha Amy: No, you aren’t!

Metal Sonic 3.0: Yes, I am!

*They “anime lightning glare” at one another*

Robotnik: *Gets between them* Alright, that’s enough, you two! There are far more important things to worry about, such as getting ahold of those Elemental Chaos Rings!

Metal Sonic 3.0: Very well, whatever. She isn’t worth my time, anyway.

Mecha Amy: Hmph! Jerk!

Metal Sonic 3.0: So, where are the rings located this time?

Robotnik: According to my scanners, they’re in two separate locations. Four of them are located at Tails’ Workshop, while the last three are at Professor Boobowski’s laboratory, which is somewhere to the north.

Metal Sonic 3.0: Ah, yes, of course. I remember now. Shortly before my previous battle against Metal Sonic, that girl with the staff had three of them in her possession. She must have been the one who took them to that laboratory.

Robotnik: Precisely. I need you to go over there to retrieve them for me. Mecha Amy, you get the ones at Tails’ Workshop. Understood?

Metal Sonic 3.0: Of course. It’ll be my pleasure.

Mecha Amy: *Crosses her arms and turns her head* I don’t wanna.

Robotnik: *Takes out the shut-down switch*

Mecha Amy: Uh, I mean, uh, I’d be happy to!

Robotnik: I thought so. Since Egg-Robo and the Elemental Goddesses have obviously failed their tasks, I’m counting on you two to finish the job!

*They turn on their jet boosters and take off*

Elsewhere, outside of Tails’ Workshop…

Bean: *Tosses a few explosives at Heavy and Bomb*

*They manage to dodge them*

Heavy: *Holds his fist out, aims at Bean, and launches it like a rocket*

Bean: Uhhhhhhhh! *Gets hit right in the face and falls over*

Heavy: *Reconnects his fist as it comes back*

Bomb: Nice one! Now, it’s my turn!

While his fuse was lit, Bomb began charging towards Bean, but before he had the chance to explode on him, Bean quickly got up again and gave him a good kick, and sent him flying in Heavy’s direction, triggering an explosion.

Bomb: GAAAAAAH! *Czzzzzzt!*

Heavy: UHHHHHHHH! *Czzzzzt!*

Bean: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Now THAT’S what I call “Dynamite Power”!

Bomb: Ghhhh…! *Czzzzt!* Are…you alright over there, Heavy?

Heavy: Yes, I’m…fine. *Czzzzt!* What about you?

Bomb: I’m okay, but… I’m going to need a few more minutes…to regenerate. Until then, you’re going to…have to fight him by yourself. *Czzzzzt!*

Heavy: That’s…no big deal. I can take him.

Bean: Try this on for size! *Tosses a few more bombs at him*

*Suddenly, some projectiles are seen flying towards the bombs, and they get destroyed in the midair, before they could come anywhere near Heavy*

Bean: What the…!? How’d that happen!?

Heavy: *Looks around and notices Gamma, who has smoke coming out of his gun* Ah, Gamma… You’re right on time.

Bean: Oh, so it’s YOU, huh?

Gamma: You… You’re the one responsible for rendering everyone unconscious, are you not?

Bean: Yeah, I am. You got a problem?

Gamma: The Elemental Chaos Rings that you’ve stolen…hand them over.

Bean: Oh, here’s an idea! How about NO?

Gamma: Resistance is futile… *Aims his blaster at him* Kindly hand over the rings.

Bean: Just try and make me, you piece of junk!

*The battle resumes*

Again, outside of Professor Boobowski’s laboratory…

Tiara: *Pins Nack to the ground with her foot, pointing her staff up to his face* Are you ready to give up yet?

Nack: Give in? Ta you? HAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, now ‘DAT’S rich!

Ah, crap! What’s Sonic doin’ here!?

Tiara: Huh? *Looks*

After creating a diversion to catch Tiara off guard, Nack, with a semi-psychotic grin on his face, decided to raise his knife and jam it right through her leg.

Tiara: AUUUUUUGGHH! *Kneels down in pain*

Nack: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You’re SO gullible! I can’t BELIEVE ya fell fa ‘dat ONE! *Gets back up and abruptly takes the knife out of her leg, adding to the pain*

Tiara: Ahhhh!

Nack: *Puts the knife back in its sheathe/holster, takes out his gun, and pistol-whips her*

Tiara: Uhhhhhh! *Falls flat on her stomach*

Nack: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *Start stomping her*


Nack: *Kicks Tiara, causing her to roll on her back, and then grabs her by the shirt* ‘Da Chaos Rings… Where ‘dey at?

Tiara: Ghhhh…! I’ll…never tell!

Nack: *Punches her in the jaw*

Tiara: Uhhhhhhhhh!

Nack: Look, my patience wit’ ‘chu is runnin’ thin, Boobowski! Tell me where ‘dey at!

Tiara: Two words... *Spits in his face* Up yours!

Nack: GAH! *Wipes his face* OH, NOW ‘DAT DOES IT! *Continues beating her*


Meanwhile, inside the lab…

Prof. Boobowski: *Watching from the window* NO! TIARA!!! *Gets ready to rush outside*

Porkenstein: Gazebo, what are you doing? Surely you aren’t-

Prof. Boobowski: Yes, I am, Nathaniel. I’m doing my duty as a father. I just can’t sit back and allow this to continue any longer! Fang… That scoundrel! He’s gone too far! It was already one thing for him to break in here in the first place, but when the moment he’s harmed my daughter, he’s crossed the line!

Porkenstein: I understand, but what about the police? We phoned them as soon as the battle began, so they should be here at any moment now.

Prof. Boobowski: Maybe, but there’s no telling when they’ll be here! If we don’t act fast, Tiara’s going to be killed!

Porkenstein: Hmm, I suppose you’re right.

*They rush out of the room*

Again, outside…

Tiara: *On the ground, moaning in pain*

Nack: ‘Dis is ya last chance! No mo’ah mistah nice guy, ‘cause if you don’t cough up ‘dem Chaos Rings right now, Ah’m gonna pump ya guts full o’ lead! Ya undastand!?

Tiara: …

Nack: Well, fine! Suit ‘chaself ‘den! *Aims his gun down at her*

Tiara: …! *A terrified expression appears on her face*

*Prof. Boobowski and Porkenstein come through the door*

Prof. Boobowski: STOP IT! Right now! Don’t you lay another FINGER on my daughter, or so help me, I’ll…!

Nack: HAHAHAHAHAHA! ‘N’ you’ll do WHAT? Huh, ya ol’ geezer? You ain’t in ‘da position ta be orderin’ me around ‘r nutin’! AH’M ‘da one who’s in control, here, gramps! Ya see how close my finga is to ‘da trigga? You’d do good ta not be makin’ threats like ‘dat, ‘cause I could kill ‘er right now if I wanna!

Prof. Boobowski: …

Nack: Now, ‘da Elemental Chaos Rings… At ‘dis point, I’d recommend handin’ ‘em ovah, ‘cause ya already know what’ll happen if ya don’t!

Prof. Boobowski: …

Very well, you win.

Nack: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I knew ya’d come ta your senses, doc!

Porkenstein: Gazebo… Are you sure this is a wise decision?

Prof. Boobowski: I don’t have a choice. This is the only way to ensure her safety.

*He goes back inside to get the rings, and comes back out*

Prof. Boobowski: Here they are. Take them, you fiend.

Nack: Good, good! Now, just sit ‘em down ovah ‘dere, nice ‘n’-

*Police sirens begin to sound before he has the chance to finish his sentence*

Nack: Huh!? Hey, wayda minute… Don’t tell me…!

*A bunch of police choppers are seen flying towards the area*

Cop #1: *Through a loudspeaker* Fang the Sniper, we have you surrounded! Stay where you are and put your hands up in the air!

Nack: Ah, crap! AH, CRAAAAAAP! It’s ‘da cops! How’d ‘dey find me!?

Wait, I’ll beddit was ‘cause o’ one o’ you geezers! YOU dimed me out to ‘em, didn’t ya!?

Porkenstein: We’ll let you figure that one out.

Nack: *Quickly runs over to “his” Egg –O- Matic Hovercraft, and jumps inside* Ah’m gonna remembuh ‘dis, y’hear!? *Starts the engine and takes off*

*The police copters fly after him*

Prof. Boobowski: He’s finally gone… What a relief!

Porkenstein: If the police fail to catch him, then here’s hoping his hoverpod crashes and burns.

Prof. Boobowski: Indeed. *Runs over to Tiara* Tiara, are you alright, my dear!? Say something!

Tiara: Ihhhh…! D-Don’t worry, Father, I’m…okay… *Coughs up some blood*

Prof. Boobowski: Nathaniel, I’m going to go call an ambulance. You’re going to have to head over to Tails’ Workshop in Tiara’s place, and bring the remaining Elemental Chaos Rings over here.

Porkenstein: Right.

Come to think of it, exactly where IS his Workshop located, anyhow?

Tiara: It’s…in the Mystic Ruins. Just…keep moving…straight and you…won’t be able…to miss it…

Porkenstein: Thank you, I’ll be on my way now. Do get well soon, Tiara. *Runs off*

Wasting no time, Professor Porkenstein quickly hopped into his motorboat and took off, bound for Tails’ Workshop in the Mystic Ruins to get the other four Chaos Rings. In the meantime, Heavy, Bomb (who has finished regenerating), and E-102 Gamma’s battle against Bean the Dynamite was still taking place.

Heavy: *Runs toward Bean and stomps on his foot*

Bean: GAH! *Hops around, holding his foot*

Bomb: *Gets behind him and starts clinging to his back*

Bean: What are you doing!? Get off of me! *Tries shaking him off*

Bomb: Hee hee hee hee… *Begins to flash*

Bean: Oh, no you don’t! *Backs into a wall and start slamming Bomb onto it*

Bomb: Uhhhhh… *Czzzzzt!* Continues flashing*

Bean: *Continues slamming him against the wall to shake him off*

Heavy: Bomb, what are you waiting for!? Just blast him already!

Bomb: I still need a little bit more time!

Gamma: Perhaps you could allow me to speed up the detonation process?

Bomb: Sure, go right ahead!

Gamma: *Aims at Bomb, locks him on target, and blasts him, triggering the explosion*


After getting himself caught in Bomb’s explosion, Bean ended up getting blackened up and knocked back, with the four Elemental Chaos Rings scattering (like normal rings in the Sonic games) and falling on the floor.

Heavy: It’s just as I predicted from the start… We ended up mopping the floor with you.

Bean: *Slowly gets back up* Pffft! Don’t get a swelled head! You haven’t beaten me yet! I still have yet to show you TRUE Dynamite Pow-

*Looks up and notices the police copters* Oh, you have GOT to be kidding me! How’d they even know I was here!?

*Orbot and Cubot, along with the rest of the heroes (who are now conscious) come outside*

Orbot: *Comes outside* Take a wild guess.

Bean: So, this was YOUR doing, then! Next time I come back, you’re gonna pay for this! You hear me!? *Runs over the Egg –O- Matic that he stole, jumps in, starts the engine, and takes off*

*The police choppers follow*

Gamma: Elemental Chaos Rings… Successfully retrieved!

Vector: Heh heh, it figures he’d run off… Freakin’ coward.

Charmy: Yeah, but on the bright side, at least they got the Chaos Rings back!

Blaze: Speaking of a which, didn’t you say that Tiara was supposed to be arriving to pick them up?

Amy: Yeah. I have no idea why she hasn’t come back yet. Not that I’m complaining, though.

Sonic: *Sweatdrops*

Slush: I don’t have a clue what’s keeping her, either. Maybe one of us could deliver the rings over there, instead?

Tails: Good idea. Leave that to me. *Walks over to the rings*

???: Hee hee hee! Can’t let you do that, little fox!

Tails: Huh? *Looks around* Who said that?

Mecha Amy: *Swoops down and grabs the Elemental Chaos Rings before Tails has the chance*

Sonic: What the…!?

Amy: A robot clone of…me?

Heavy: Oh, dear God… Not her!

Bomb: You’ve got to be kidding… Robotnik’s decided to release HER!? Has he lost his mind!?

Knuckles: Huh?  You’ve met her before?

Heavy: Yes. That’s Mecha Amy; a mentally deranged creation of Robotnik’s that he shut down years ago, because of her mindless penchant for destruction.

Bomb: That’s right. Robotnik had no control over her at all, and as a result, she ended up wrecking his base and even tried to kill him! Mecha Amy is crazy… She makes Mephiles seem sane by comparison! Well, almost.

Charmy: Wow. She sounds really, REALLY crazy.

Knuckles: Okay, Mecha Amy, you’d be wise to hand over those Chaos Rings!

Mecha Amy: I think not. *Notices Gamma* You…you look a lot like that big, mean robot I fought with earlier, only much skinnier.

Gamma: …

Mecha Amy: Hee hee! I’d love to stay and chat with you guys, but I have to bring these back to Dr. Robotnik. If I don’t, he’ll shut me down again, and I’ll never get to see my dear Metal Sonic again…

Everyone: …

Silver: I guess this leaves us with no choice but to take them by force!

Knuckles: I have no problem with that! *Cracks his knuckles*

Mecha Amy: See ya! Chaos Control! *The rings glow and she teleports away*

Wechnia: So, she knows how to utilize Chaos Control as well… But there’s no time to worry about that now. We have to after her!

Mighty: Right. If we’re to stop EG-005 from being brought to life, then we can’t afford to waste any time. Let’s head over to Robotnik’s base right away!

Sonic: Okay. Let’s blast through with Sonic speed, everybody!

*They take off*

So far, it looks as if things have taken a turn for the worse. Although Heavy, Bomb, and Gamma were successful in getting the Elemental Chaos Rings back from Bean, they ended up getting lifted again by Mecha Amy! Additionally, Metal Sonic Version 3.0 is on his way to Professor Boobowski’s laboratory to obtain the last three. With Professor Boobowski standing by Tiara’s side in the ambulance, as well as the fact that Professor Porkenstein has left the island to head to the Mystic Ruins, will anyone be able to stop him from getting his hands on the Elemental Chaos Rings? Will Robotnik ultimately succeed in bringing EG-005 to life, or will the heroes be able to prevent him from doing so? Find out in the next exciting chapter of Knuckles’ Chaotix: Elements of Power, Episode 3: The Goddess of Destruction!
