This story stars: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and a fan character named Jam the Jellyfish.
This story is a comedy. It is meant for all audiences.

*Sonic and all Sonic characters belong to Sega. Jam the Jellyfish belongs to Sean Gills. That means don't touch.
* * * * *
Jam just won the Royal Lottery, a raffle to decide which of his student class will become the newest of the Crown Princes.
His opponents were not too happy. They chased him out of the city during his victory celebration.
Then alone in the dangerous ocean, he drifted into a trench where an ancient treasure lay buried: An old, rusty coin.
* * * * * *
Sonic and the Prince of Jellyfish: Part 1
The coin had a cord attached to it, and he put it around his neck. As the cool metal rubbed against his flesh, all thoughts of the previous night faded away.
He swam and swam, higher and higher, faster and faster. He swam for hours. He dodged sharks and killer whales. He felt amazing!
As he got closer to the surface of the water, he could see the sun rising. He sprang out of the water. He held the coin tight and the sea water washed around him until he was drifting through the air, protected by a coat of water.
I feel so clean! he thought, hugging himself and spinning in small circles. Now... back to business. What should I do now? he looked around.
From the middle of the ocean, he could see Sea Breeze Beach, a sandy beach full of colors and vending machines, surfers and whistling life guards.
Curiousity got the better of him and he drifted his way to shore.
* * * * *
This place is beautiful he thought, now looking out over the ocean from the shoreline. The waves sang through the sea. The cool breeze sent water splashing all around him. Blue skies and seashells surrounded him.
He studied the occupants of the beach. I think... these people are all robots, he decided, focusing on a specific fisherman who was pouring motor oil into the water. YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG! Jam wanted to say.
At this point, he did not see any problem with sharing the beach with a few robots, boring as they were.
Jam ignored the droids and tried to go for a run on the beach. He jogged less than 10 meters before he got a sick and had to stop. I guess I still have my sea legs He thought. I need to get used to this dry land!!
In the distance, the jiggly Jell-O could hear what sounded like a city. He decided to walk toward the commotion.
When he got to his destination, a group of robots were busy building. This time, he decided he would try to ask them some questions. "Hi!"
"ALERT!" beeped the robot, signalling all the other robots to Jam's presence. "Unroboticized animal approaching. ATTACK MODE INITIATED!"
"Uh...!" Jam wasn't sure what to do. The robot hit him. Hard. It reminded him of his betrayal the previous night. All of his anger welled over and he attacked the robot, breaking it to bits. "STUPID ROBOT!!! I HATE YOU!"
Suddenly, he was surrounded by robots. He tried to run, but he was still not used to moving on land. "ATTACK!" beeped the robot.
"Not so fast Nutzo!" came a voice out of the blue. And no sooner did Jam turn his head to see where the voice came from had a Blue blur busted open all of the robots. Jam stared at the blur, his eyes glazing over. I must be dreaming.
And when all of the robots were destroyed and swept into a pile, the Blue blur stopped in front of Jam and helped him up.
"Who are you?" Asked Jam, standing up on his feet.
"You must be new here," said the blue spiney animal. "I'm Sonic the Hedgehog!" he leaned in and annunciated each syllabol. "I think the better question is, who are YOU?" And then leaning in closer - too close for comfort, SNIFFFF, his nostrils flared. "You smell sugary" Sonic rubbed his nose with his finger and backed away.
"I'm Jamie Collins. All my frie..." he stopped. "Everyone calls me Jam." He rubbed his fingers together so Sonic could sea how sticky they were. "I'm a Jellyfish!"
Sonic blinked, then smiled, then stood straight up and shook Jam's hand. "Sweet. Nice to meet you Jam. Lets be friends."
"I'd like that!" Jam smiled, too.
Sonic and the Prince of Jellyfish: Part 2
"Where are we going?" asked Jam, finally getting used to moving on dry land.
"We're going to Chili Dog Cafe to meet up with Tails and Knuckles! They're my teammates." Sonic's stomach growled. "Man I'm hungry. Can you jog any faster"
The two were jogging on a road that goes through the everglades.
"Sure thing blue man!" Jam sped up.
"Nice! But you'll never outrun me, fish face!" Sonic ran ahead of Jam, hurdling over a stone boulder.
Jam smirked and ran up so the two were running side by side. "Anyone with half a brain can beat a Greasy Pig. Game on!"
The two raced for miles, dodging alligators and flamingos down the paved road.
Sonic thought he lost Jam for a minute until the sticky fish popped up on the other side of him. "Hey Sonic! Whats a chili dog?!"
Sonic fell flat on his face.
Jam stopped running.
"I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT A CHILI DOG IS!!" His stomach growled again. "If you can get to the chili dog stand in time, maybe you'll find out before I eat them all!" Sonic laughed at his own dumb joke.
Sonic stood up and sprinted down the street. Jam raced after him.
Minutes later, Sonic and Jam were neck and neck. Jam, wanting to be funny, threw some fly paper out in front of Sonic, and the blue hedgehog got stuck.
Watching Sonic trip and forgetting to watch the road, Jam slipped on his own wet shoes and crashed into a two tailed fox as it was coming out of the Cafe.
"OWWWW!" said tails, pulling jellyfish tentacles out of his fur. "THAT STINGS!!"
"Sorry" said Jam, his cheeks turning red. "You may want to put some vinegar on that."
"Oh... hey Tails!" said Sonic. "Can you help me get this fly paper off me?" The two got stuck in the fly paper together.
As the pair struggled, a red, mean-looking Echidna walked out of the Cafe doors. "What took you so long pinhead?" Knuckles growled. He lightened up as he saw Jam. "Who's the new guy?"
Knuckles and Jam shook hands and then the red Echidna
"You smell like candy..."
"I'm a jellyfish!"
"Sweeeet! that explains it!"
"Jam is going to pay for dinner!" Sonic joked.
"Yeah! Right!" said Jam, sarcastically.
Sonic and Tails finally managed to get the fly paper off. "You're gonna pay for dinner with that money around your neck!" Sonic poked Jam's chest where the metal plate was gushing out cold water.
"I can't use this! Its a magic coin!" Jam said, clutching the coin. The sea stirred around him.
"What? REALLY?!" asked Tails. He had just poured vinegar all over himself and was intensely examining the coin around Jam's neck.
"Then who will pay for dinner?! I'm starving!" Sonic whined.
"I will!! Knuckles volunteered. Then he gave a friendly punch to Sonic on the back of the shoulder with his spiked fist. Sonic winced.
"That is so..." Sonic started.
"Unlike you..." Tails finished.
"Welllll. Amy gave me her credit card."
"GREAT! LET'S EAT!" Sonic grinned.
* * * * *
The small group sat at a corner booth by the window of Chili Dog Cafe. There were a few other customers seated around them: a cat, a seagull, and a bubbly deer.
Sonic sat tapping his fingers on the table. "So guys... it looks like Robotnik is back yet again." He looked around the room. "Could service BEE any slower?"
"Chill out Sonic!" Tails tried to calm the blue hedgehog. "Look! the waitress is coming now!"
A stork with pink lipstick and an apron stopped at the table. "Welcome to Chili Dog, home of the chili dog, can I take your order?"
"Chili dogs all around Ma'am!" Sonic smiled and winked at her. "AND could you make it snappy!?"
"Would you like drinks with that?"
The group ordered in a clockwise manner.
Tails ordered: "Milk please!"
Knuckles ordered: "Fruit Punch Please!"
Sonic ordered: "Kool-aid Please!"
Jam ordered: "Diet Coke Please!"
"Coming right up!" Said the waitress.
Moments later, the waitress came out with a big tray full of drinks and another tray full of chili dogs. Sonic took two of the chili dogs and started chowing down, washing the beef franks down with kool aid.
Knuckles and Tails both followed suit, but ate less like pigs.
"THIS IS A CHILI DOG?!" Jam frowned. "I CAN'T EAT THIS!"
"I call dibs!" Sonic shouted.
"I'm sorry sir, would you like to order something else?" asked the waitress, handing him a menu.
"This looks good!!" Jam said, pointing at a hotdog with mayonaise and Jell-O on it. "I'll take two!"
"Two Jell-O Dogs, coming right up!" said the waitress.
Another moment later, the waitress came back from the kitchen with two Jell-O Dogs and some drink refills.
Knuckles choked on his food, then watching Jam eat, blurted out, "THAT'S CANIBALISM!! You're a jellyfish and you're eating Jell-O?"
Jam looked puzzled. Sonic put his hand over Knuckle's mouth, hushing him. The jiggly Jell-O finished eating his food. "De~lish!" Then he washed it down with some ice cold Diet Coke.
Knuckles was disgusted.
"Hey Mary, go pay the bill". Sonic said, looking at the red ant-eater.
Knuckles turned his head towards Sonic and put the tip of his nose up so it resembled a pig's nose. "Oink oink piggy!" And then he got up and went to the register.
While Knuckles was paying, two robots came in wearing Roboland T-shirts and holding balloons.
"Aw nuts!" Sonic and Tails exchanged glances and then busted the robots silly.
"Roboland. A robot's dream come true", Tails read from the robots t-shirts. "This must be where Robotnik is!"
"If thats where Eggman is, then it looks like that's our next stop!" Sonic exclaimed. "To the Hedgehog Mobile!"
"Sonic..." Tails was speechless for a moment. A drop of sweat dripped from of his forehead. "Its broken, remember?"
"Oh yeah..." Sonic stared into space, apparently lost in a flashback.
"Then I guess we go on foot!" Knuckles said, joining the two.
"Yeah! Lets go!" The three Freedom Fighters raced out the door.
"UH, GUYS? WAIT FOR ME!" Jam whined, racing after them.
* * * * *
Sonic and the Prince of Jellyfish: Part 3
"Can't you guys go any faster?" Jam tapped his foot on the ground.
"You're starting to sound like Sonic, fish face!" Knuckles said.
"I don't know why you're in such a rush Jam, we could be walking into a trap. Robotnik is totally evil and loves to do stuff like that!" Sonic started running circles around the jellyfish.
"I'm thirsty..." whined tails.
"You can drink some of my magic water!" suggested Jam, clutching the money on his chest.
"Um... is that sanitary?" Tails stuck his tongue out in disgust.
"We're almost there! Look!" Sonic pointed. "There's some more robots!"
"HEDGEHOG ALERT!!" beeped one of the robots. But before it had time to calculate a solution, Sonic had already smashed it. Wing nuts, gears, wires, and springs
scattered across the road.
"Roboland hooo!!" Shouted Tails, spying a large amusement park situated on the boardwalk ahead. Lights and 8-bit music polluted the atmosphere.
"THIS IS AWEFUL!" said Sonic.
"I don't think its so bad. It looks fun!" Jam replied.
"No! I mean THIS MUSIC SUCKS!!" Sonic covered his ears.
"Just deal with it blue boy." Knuckles glared at him. His sour look was replaced by a startled, sick look once he spied a 50-story tall ferris wheel. The gondolas were decorated with streaming lights. "I just remembered I hate ferris wheels!" Knuckles frowned.
"Look Sonic! A vending Machine!" said Tails, tugging on one of sonic's spines. "I want some juice!"
"Does it take credit cards?" asked knuckles, doubtful.
"I KNOW!" said Sonic. He grabbed the money that was on Jam's neck. He dragged the coin (and Jam) over to the machine and stuck the coin into the slot.
"HEY!!" said Jam.
"Stop whining!" Sonic hit the juice button on the machine. The machine responded by short circuiting and water started gushing through the mainframe from the ancient coin.
Sonic stepped back and Jam pulled the coin back out of the slot. The vending machine exploded and all of the juice boxes sprung out into the sky. Tails flew up and caught one mid-air.
"YAYY!! Thanks, Sonic!" Tails smiled. One would almost expect him to start purring like a kitten.
"Owww!" said Jam, rubbing his neck.
"No time for whining, sticky fingers, we've got company." Knuckles looked towards the boardwalk. A dozen robots were watching them.
"INTRUDER ALERT! INFORM KING ROBOTNIK!!" beeped the robot.
"Aw nuts!" the team said together.
"SPLIT UP!!! Sonic shouted.
Tails flew towards the roller coaster.
Jam headed for the beach.
Knuckles reluctantly glided towards the ferris wheel.
And Sonic ran for the arcade.
* * * * *
Tails landed in a roller coaster cart. Several robots followed the two-tailed fox.
"Not good. Not good." Tails said to himself. This particular roller coaster, The Darwin was the fastest roller coaster ever made. It was advertised with the well-known slogan, "Survival of the fittest". The slogan was a joke of course. NO ONE could survive the ride!
The ride twisted and turned. Tails dodged attacks from behind from passenger robots.
The cart went through a 300 meter spiral straight down and then shot up, jolted left, and then another spiral.
I shouldn't have drunk all that juice.
After about three minutes on the roller coaster, Tails looked back to see not a single robot left on the roller coaster! they had all fallen off and their parts were scattered all over the ground along with hats, cell phones, and a wallet or two.
Tails jumped off the ride and flew away, but he was still dizzy and crash landed into the ferris wheel.
* * * * *
Jam waded through the water on the beach. Maybe the robots won't be able to walk through water!!
But the hope was short lived. The robots exteriors were waterproof!
At least 30 robots now surrounded him on all sides.
"TSUNAMI!!" Jam shouted.
The robots bought his bluff and as they were looking away, he stuck his money in a slot in one of the robots, and it exploded. Then he jumped over them and did the same thing to one of the robots in the back row.
Too many robots! He noticed some rocks on the beach and scooped them up, then throwing them at the robots as hard as he could. Five of the robots caught on fire and he took this opportunity to run further into the water.
Many of the injured robots short-circuited and the water gushed into the holes he made.
Score!! He thought, and he quickly ran back to shore to try again. After a few minutes, all of the robots had been destroyed. But another wave was coming and he started running towards the arcade.
* * * * *
"Sorry Knuckles!" said Tails, who had crashed into the seat Knuckles was in.
Knuckles was frozen in fear from the ride.
"Knuckles?" Tails pinched the red echidna.
"OWWW!!" Screamed knuckles, shaking the Gondola.
"Where are all of the robots that were chasing you?" asked Tails.
"Don't look down..."
Tails immediately looked down. At least 200 hundred robots surrounded the ferris wheel. Not one of them wanted to get on. Tails spied the control center for the ferris wheel and saw that the off switch was locked in place. The ferris wheel was stuck.
"I don't want to talk about it..." said knuckles.
"I have an idea!" Tails jumped, shaking the gondola. "I'll fly us down. Together we can take them out!"
Before Tails even finished his sentence, Knuckles was holding onto the furry fox as tight as he could.
Tails started flying. "Alright, here's the deal: I'll throw you at the robot and then you kill it and bounce back up to me! Are you ready?!"
"I'm good now!" said Knuckles, gripping the fox's pale fur. "FIRE!"
"CHERRY BOMB!!!" Tails threw the round, red ant-eater. Knuckles bounced back and forth from robot to robot.
When they were done and all of the robots were destroyed, the pair landed. "I'm thirsty!" Tails said, panting.
FACEPALM - Knuckles.
* * * * *
Sonic was hiding the arcade. Only one robot had followed him. It was the only robot that could make him sweat this much. Metal Sonic!
Sonic and the Prince of Jellyfish: Part 4
"Well if it isn't my favorite lug nut. Back again?" the cocky hedgehog pointed, face to face with a robotic copy of himself. "How did you manage to come back this time?"
"Wi-Fi upload?" Suggested Metal Sonic.
"You're lying!" Sonic snapped. "There's no way any data could have survived our last battle! Besides! The good Doctor makes sure to keep the broadband speeds at turtle pace!"
"Dial-up upload?" metal sonic said, shrugging.
"What do you want this time?" Sonic demanded.
"You know the drill! It's time to du-du-du-du-duel!" Metal Sonic beeped.
"Fine... How about..." Sonic looked around the room. "I challenge you to karaoke! If I win, not only do you let me go, but you tell us Robotnik's plan."
"And if I win, I fill you full of air and turn you into a prolate spheroid for the Eggmanland Eggers Football Team!" the robot beep-chuckled at his nerdy joke. (A prolate spheroid is the shape of a football.)
"As if!! Anyways, you go first."
The two blue hedgehogs walked to the Karaoke Game.
INITIATING DUEL MODE beeped the machine.
Metal Sonic picked: "Crazy Train" by Ozzy Osbourne.
Sonic's draw dropped when the metal hedgehog finished his turn. "You sounded just like Ozzy!" Sonic looked at the score. Metal Sonic finished with 100,000 points!
"I've been practicing." Metal Sonic beeped. (Its so obvious he's blushing right now)
Sonic picked: "Blue" by Eifle 65
ON YOUR MARK, GET SET... SING YOUR LAST WORDS!!
"Blue his house with a blue little window and a blue corvette and everything is blue for him cuz he's blue he's blue yeah yeah"
Sonic rocked out. 100,001 points.
Sonic put the mic down and looked at Metal Sonic. The metal counterfeit started retreating, but as he left the building, Jam smacked headfirst into the metal robot, followed by Knuckles and then Tails.
"Don't let him get away!" shouted Sonic.
All of a sudden the lights went out. FZZZZT cracked the loudspeaker, interrupting the looping 8-bit music. Then a familiar voice came over the intercom. "If it isn't my favorite little blue porkchop!"
Metal bars covered the building. Mechanical locks clicked into place and Team Sonic was trapped.
"WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE EGGMAN!! I THOUGHT YOU HATED FUN!!" Sonic was not happy to see his arch-nemesis.
FZZZZT"I decided to give my henchmen a place to celebrate!" said robotnik.
"CELEBRATE WHAT, CRACKERJACK, YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO CELEBRATE!"
FZZZZT"Thats where you're wrong birdbrain!"
All of a sudden the floor shook. An enormous cloud of dust drifted into the secured room
"Sonic!" Knuckles pointed outside. "Angel Island just crashed!"
FzzFZZFzzT"MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA" Laughed the robotic egg lord. "Metal Sonic! Finish them off!!!" The intercom turned off.
Outside, team Sonic could see Robotnik leaving. His remaining robots started disassembling Roboland Themepark and following their master with the parts.
"Grrrr!!! That fat Jellybelly is gonna get it this time!!" Knuckles said, waving his fist.
"Jelly belly?" Jam said, nervously, wondering at Knuckle's implications.
"It.. Its not what you think!!" Tails could tell what Jam was thinking.
POP A loud screech came from the middle of the room.
"Don't worry about Metal Sonic!" Sonic said dusting his hands off. "Look, theres a way out!" Sonic said, pointing at a manhole under one of the arcades.
"You first!!" Jam, Knuckles, and Tails said in unison.
"Chickens!" Sonic sighed and jumped into the pipe.
"Itsa meee! Marrrio!" Knuckles chuckled and jumped in behind the spiky blue hero.
* * * * *
Sonic and the Prince of Jellyfish: Part 5
"Ew, what is this gross stuff?" Asked Jam, getting stuck in the muk.
"You don't want to know," said Sonic, staring more closely at Jam's glow-in-the dark flesh than the sewage on his jeans.
"This is bad Sonic!" Knuckles pointed out the obvious. "Angel Island has crashed. That can only mean Eggman has gotten his filthy palms on the Master Emerald.
"Emerald? Whats a... Ma Master Emera.. Emerald?" Jam asked, sounding it out.
"Its a magic crystal. It is the only thing that kept Angel Island afloat. If Robotnik has his egg-y hands on it, he could destroy us, and probably worse!" said Tails, holding his nose and flying above the sewage.
"Magic? Like my coin!" Jam clutched his money. (SG - he's such a jew)
"Sort of." Sonic looked over at Knuckles. "And Eggman only got his hands on it because a certain knuckle head wasn't doing his job!"
"Knuckles is the guardian of angel island," whispered Tails to Jam.
"Robotnik is YOUR archenemy, NOT MINE, pig face!" Knuckles snarled "You should have finished him off a long time ago! This is YOUR fault!"
"GUYS!" Jam shouted, interrupting the argument.
In the distance, a creature was watching them. The team could hear it breathing. Or was it breath at all?
The four heroes looked down the long narrow passage. A giant mechanical turtle shone out of the darkness.
Jam shook in his jeans. "Turtles eat jellyfish!" He ducked behind Sonic.
Sonic shrugged and then moved out of the way. "You gotta face your fears sometime, kid!"
"WHAT?!" Jam cried.
"Show us what you got sticks!" Knuckles pushed the frightened jellyfish towards the robot.
"Good luck Jam!" Tails gave him the peace sign.
"You guys have got to be..." KNOCK! KAPOW! Before Jam could finish his sentence, the turtle punched him across the sewage tunnel, submerging him completely in the waste. Why does it smell so bad in here? Robots don't use the restroom!!
Jam hopped back to his feet. "Now i'm mad!" He said. The money around his neck washed around him, cleaning the muk off of his jeans.
"JELLYFISH!! YUM!!" beeped the robotic turtle.
"Ew, go to the beach and find your own - " Jam decided to test out his signature fighting technique.
The turtle marched slowly towards him. The jiggly Jell-O leaned forward, and then jumped into the air. He curled up, held onto his feet and shifted his weight, spinning around like a ball. He landed heavily on the turtle's head, smashing its face in.
"That was easy!" exclaimed Jam.
"Nice job fish face!" Said Knuckles.
"No duh ant breath!"
"What do you call that b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l. move?" Sonic asked.
"Jell-O Shot!" Jam gave Sonic a thumbs up.
"I hope you remember how you did it!"
"I'm thirsty!" Tails whined.
"FOREWARD... MARCH!!" ordered Sonic. The four heroes marched onward through the sewage.
Sonic and the Prince of Jellyfish: Part 6
"How do you get your head so spikey?" Jam asked sonic as they exited the sewer system into a poluted lake.
"Lots of hair products!" Sonic said, pulling out a pocket sized mirror. "Hot dang! I'm Gorgeous!!"
"Get out of the way you fat pig!" Knuckles shoved Sonic into the lake.
"HELLP!" Sonic gurgled and wailed his hands around like a drowning cat.
"I'll save you!" Tails brushed his fox fur out of his eyes and jumped into the lake tails-first. He swam over to Sonic, picked him up, and flew over to shore where Jam and Knuckles had started discussing Angel Island.
"So, the Master Emerald was kept safe on Angel Island all these years? And the Chaos Emeralds and the Master Emerald can grant wishes?" Jam asked, a little confused.
"No fish face. It doesn't grant wishes. It gives someone extraordinary power." Knuckles punched him in the shoulder.
"STOP DOING THAT!" wimpered Jam, smacking Knuckles in the face with his open palm.
"Here's some vinegar!" Tails pulled out his first aid kit. He poured it all over the teary-eyed echidna's head.
Knuckles frowned and stopped squirming.
"But Robotnik has the Master Emerald now. There's no telling what he's planning. He could power a machine with it. Or worse..." Sonic explained.
"We have to go to Angel Island and see if there are any survivors! That crash could have hurt a lot of people!" Tails said.
"I'll go ahead of you guys." Sonic bent over to tie his shoes. "There's no time to waste. You guys get there as fast as you can."
Sonic took off running as fast as he could. Jam took off behind him leaving Tails and Knuckles behind.
* * * * *
Sonic arrived at the crashsite. Just as he stopped running, a very sticky fish rear ended him.
"Oww!!" Sonic turned around to see what ran into him. "JAM!! What the...?! How did you get here so fast?"
"I'm super fast..." Jam shrugged.
"Whatever... Lets go!" Sonic grew impatient.
The deadly duo surveyed the ruins, looking under rocks and boulders. After 15 minutes or so, Knuckles and Tails arrived on the scene.
"Find anyone yet?" Knuckles asked.
"Not yet." Sonic frowned.
"HEELP!" came a squawk-y voice.
"In here guys!" Jam called his teammates over to a cave. Sonic and Knuckles ran over quickly to the entrance.
"Its so dark in here..." Sonic noticed.
Jam led the team through the cave. His face was glowing brightly enough that the heroes could see through the darkness.
"HELLO?!" shouted Sonic. "WE'RE HERE TO HELP!!"
"OVER HERE!" replied the squawk-y voice. The team followed the sound and found a small eagle trapped under a rock.
Jam and Knuckles lifted the rock.
"Are you hurt?" Knuckles asked politely.
"My leg!! I think its broken!" cried the eagle.
"Its okay." Sonic knelt down and took the bird's hand (wing?).
Tails handed the hedgehog a first-aid kit.
Sonic took out some plaster bandages. "What's your name?" Sonic began fixing the break and wrapping a cast around the broken limb."
"I'm Bert." said the eagle, tears in his eyes.
"Try not to move until this dries Bert. Can I ask what happened here?"
"I was flying around in the clouds, and I landed on this island. Dr. Robotnik was capturing all of the citizens of the island and turning them into robots. I tried to fly away, but the robots were everywhere! I hid in this cave, but the next thing I knew, the island crashed. I saw the robots all leaving in escape pods..." The eagle stopped crying. "I'm so glad you're here Sonic! You're my hero!"
"There, there, its okay. Lets get out of here for now," Sonic put his arm Bert and helped him out of the cave.
* * * * *
The team set up a hideout near the ruins. Here, they constructed a small radio tower that could be used to communicate with the other Freedom Fighters. Bert was made an honorary Freedom Fighter by Sonic and was assigned to be in charge of this hideout while he healed.
Overall, Bert's injuries were not too bad. He could still fly.
"There's one more thing I forgot to tell you earlier!" Bert said, remembering something important.
"What's that?" Sonic asked, changing his socks. The four heroes were getting ready to leave.
"Robotnik was saying something about 'Easter Island'. I think thats where he took the Master Emerald!! I overheard a conversation...
Robotnik(flashback): "Robey, take these prisoners to Easter Island!"
Robey(flashback): "Robotnik, are you going to use the Master Emerald to power some awesome Robot?"
Robotnik(flashback): "Not this time, Robey. I plan to use the Emeralds on... MYSELF!!"
Robey(flashback): "What do you think will happen? Aren't you scared??"
Robotnik(flashback): "I will attain PERFECTION!! I Will be unstoppable!" (MWAHAHAHAHAHA)
"THAT FAT JELLYBELLY!" Sonic was clearly annoyed.
"GAAAH" Knuckles punched the ground.
Jam and Tails looked down at the ground.
Sonic headed toward the door. Then he looked back. "Be safe, Bert. We'll stop Robotnik. Thats a promise."
* * * * *
Sonic and the Prince of Jellyfish: Part 7
"I'm thirsty!!" whined Tails for the umpteenth time.
"For the hundredth time, we're almost there!" Knuckles boomed. He parked his car in a small clearing and covered it with large green leaves.
Knuckles had found his jeep in one piece while leaving the ruins of Angel Island. The heroes decided they would rest at a Freedom Fighters Hideout to gather supplies and make plans for the coming mission.
"Well, this is the place!" said Sonic.
"Great, do you have cable?" Jam asked.
"I don't know where you come from Jam, but up here where Robotnik rules the world, we don't have much in the way of entertainment."
"Oh..." Jam was disappointed.
"But we do have... dun dun duh DUHNNN! Sega! Tails made some video games starring none other than yours truly--"
"And me!" Knuckles interjected.
"Do you want to play?" asked Tails, smirking. He knew all of the cheat codes for the game and was planning on wooping some butt.
"Sure, after dinner. Do you have Jell-O Dogs?" Jam asked.
"Well... we have canned hotdogs, mayonaise, and Jell-O. I'm sure we could whip one up for you real quick!"
The heroes entered the hideout. It was mostly empty because no one ever used it. They settled down and decided to relax before bed. Sonic called Bert to make sure he was adjusting to the hideout alright. No problems so far. The team could sleep easy tonight.
* * * * *
"JAM! Did you wet the bed?!" Knuckles shouted the next morning, jumping out of the botton bunk. "This is the last time I bunk with you, I swear!"
"NO! It was my money!" Jam said, pulling his lucky, rusty coin from under his pillow. "Besides, what do you expect, I'M A FISH!"
"Goov morming tem!" Sonic said, walking into the room. He was brushing his teeth. "I fink i fell a caffidy coming om!"
"A WHAT?" Knuckles shouted.
Sonic pulled the toothbrush out of his mouth. "A CAVITY ANT BREATH!" He turned and glared at Jam. "THIS IS YOUR FAULT! STOP GETTING SUGAR ALL OVER ME!"
"NICE JAMMIES!" Tails said to Jam, noticing the multi colored Jellyfish that decorated his pajamas.
"Anyways, back to business." Sonic said, spitting into the sink.
"Lets talk about it at breakfast." Tails pointed at the kitchen table he had set up while everyone was still sleeping.
"EGGS!!" Knuckles, Sonic, and Jam said simultaneously. They each took a seat and started eating.
"So, I fink..." Sonic said. His mouth was full of food. He swallowed. "We should go get the Tornado and go to Easter Island. We will probably make it by sun-up tomorrow."
"The Tornado is only 50 miles away in the hangar. We can make it in 20 minutes." Tails smiled and flew up in the air. Then he crash landed back in his seat.
"Can we all fit?" Asked knuckles, who was implying that the plane wouldn't fit Jam in it.
"I can add a seat in 5 minutes tops!" Tails bragged.
"So is Robotnik strong?" asked Jam, chugging some glue. (It's one of his favorites - cuz its made out of - dun dun dun - gelatin!)
"I wouldn't say he's STRONG" Sonic had to laugh. "But he always makes us jump through hoops to get to him. He hides behind his machines."
"Do you think I could beat him?" Jam flexed his biceps.
"Maybe." Sonic said. "You never know. I guess it all depends on what he is using the Master Emerald for!"
FZZZZT Just then, a monitor turned on and positioned itself in front of the kitchen table.
"Team Sonic, this is Team Gamma. We have an urgent message, OVER."
"Roger!" said Sonic. "What's up? OVER."
"We have huge energy readings from Easter Island. The reports are that the chaos emeralds have all been gathered in one location. The energy levels are off the charts!" came the female voice. "We are evacuating and moving to a safer location, OVER!"
"Roger! We are headed to Easter Island as soon as we can. OVER."
"Good luck Sonic. END TRANSMISSION!"
"Well you ready team?" Sonic stood up.
"Ready as we'll ever be, Sonic." Tails flew out of his seat.
"Let's go!" Knuckles stood up, too.
"I want to see what this Robot is made of!" Jam's mouth was dripping with glue.
"Head out." Sonic directed, and the team left towards the Hangar.
Sonic and the Prince of Jellyfish: Part 8
"THIS IS SO MUCH FUN!" Jam said over the Tornado's in-flight intercom. "I've never flown before!"
"Well, get used to it Jellin'," Sonic replied. "We're probably going to be doing a lot of flying today!"
But Sonic spoke too soon. A homing missile hit the Tornado and the red plane took a nose dive.
"MAYDAY! MAYDAY!" Sonic cried.
"EVERYONE STAY CALM! ON THE COUNT OF THREE, EVACUATE THE PLANE. USE YOUR PARACHUTES LIKE IT SAYS IN THE INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO!" Tails directed everyone.
The four heroes jumped out of the plane and waited to get a safe distance from eachother before pulling the cord on their parachutes.
"My plane!" Sonic's eyes filled with tears.
The team floated down to a small island in the middle of the ocean. There were no other islands around. As they landed on the beach, they noticed that the island was empty.
"Great!" said Knuckles, sarcastically. "This is why you never trust a hedgehog to fly a plane."
"Shut up ant breath! Like you could do any better." Sonic was acting defensive now, crushed by the loss of his favorite plane.
"Sonic, this isn't the first time the tornado has crashed! I can make you a new plane!" Tails comforted sonic. "WAIT! THE TORNADO IS MINE!" Tails realized, and cried a little bit too.
"Thats not the point Tails! We're lost!" Sonic cried some more.
"Um guys!" Jam interupted. "I know where this is! This is close to my home! This is where all of the jellyfish go on vacation! I think I can draw a map!"
"Huh?" Sonic and Tails cheered up a little bit.
Jam took a minute to draw out a map. "We are here." Jam pointed at a small island on the south east of the map. "Easter Island is here." Jam pointed at a place on the map 40-45 miles North North East of the crash site. "All we have to do is find a way to get across!" Jam smiled.
"Wow, you sure know your way around the ocean!" Sonic gave the sticky fish a pat on the back.
"How are we going to get across?" Knuckles asked.
"I can't fly that far if I'm carrying someone..." Tails said, a little pessimistic about his own strength.
"We could make a wind glider!" Suggested Jam.
"A wind glider? How do you expect a glider to go 40 miles?" Sonic asked.
"It gets really windy here on spring nights. If we build a wind glider from wooden poles and some freshly made paper, we could launch off of a spring and ride the wind to easter Island! With a little glue and some elbow grease, I can make a decent wind glider!"
"Well lets get started! What all do we need?"
The heroes spent the remaining daylight hours fashioning a glider that would fit all four team members. At the end of the day they were ready to launch.
* * * * *
"Ready? When I give the signal, we launch off this spring. Don't fight the wind, it'll take us straight to Easter Island."
"READY!" the team shouted.
"GO!" Jam shouted.
The team jumped off a tall cliff and onto a spring set below it. The spring shot them straight over the ocean. They hung on tightly as the wind pushed the glider through the starlit skies.
"Wow!" Jam said.
"Its working!" Tails said, excitedly. He used his twin tails to help propel the glider.
"Just don't let go!"
An hour passed and the team had not given up hope that the wind would take them straight to their destination.
"I think I see it." Knuckles pointed at an island full of smog and lights.
As the heroes got closer, they could see large stone heads littering the shore. In the middle of the island, a large metal structure towered over the sea.
"Is that a launch pad?" Tails asked.
"A what?" Jam asked back.
"I think Robotnik built a rocket! He's planning on leaving the planet!"
"So let him go!" Sonic said. "Good riddance." He spat on the ground.
"NOT WITH THE MASTER EMERALD, pig head!" Knuckles growled.
"Well lets head that way." Jam pointed. The team leaned and the glider glided straight towards the launch pad. But it was too late, the rocket launched!
"Gotta make it in time!" Sonic cried.
Tails spun his tails, accelerating the glider.
"MADE IT!" Sonic said as they touched down by the enterence to the rocket.
Knuckles ripped open the door, letting the team inside, and then closed it tightly behind him.
Two lighting-like eyes shown out of the darkness.
A deep voice echoed through the interior of the rocket. "Welcome aboard, hedgehog!"
* * * * *
Sonic and the Prince of Jellyfish: Part 9
"Robotnik!" Sonic growled.
"Hedgehog!!" Robotnik responded.
"You're going down! We're taking over the ship!" Sonic pounced at Robotnik's head. But it was as hard as steel and didn't do any damage.
"Foolish hedgehog! I won't let you ruin my plans this time!"
Several escape pods left the rocket. One particular escape pod was yellow with black stripes. It seemed to be larger than the others.
Several of the rocket's parts fell off and the rocket left the planet's atmosphere. Anti-gravity kicked in.
"Sonic, take care of Robotnik!" Knuckles shouted. He ducked into one of the side rooms and started running down the hall looking for the emeralds.
Jam ducked into one of the rooms on the other side and started looking for the control room.
"I've got your back Sonic!" Tails said, pulling out a ring. "Catch!" Tails threw the ring to Sonic, who skillfully caught it and gripped onto it tightly.
"Game on robot!"
The two entered into mortal kombat.
"Get over here!" Sonic grunted, reaching for Robotnik's neck.
"Not a chance, pork-u-pine." Sonic ran up behind robotnik and aimed a blow at his rear.
Meanwhile, Tails was in front of the giant egg lord. He flew up and head-butted Robotnik in the face.
"Stop flapping around like annoying little flies!" Robotnik boomed, swatting at the two.
Sonic and Tails weaved in and out, making the fat robot dizzy.
Finally, Robotnik crashed.
"We've knocked him out!" Tails said, kicking Eggman in the cheek.
"Tails, you go help knuckles find the emeralds. I'll go help Jam find the control center."
Sonic and Tails sped off in different directions.
* * * * *
"Tails!" Knuckles was glad to see the two-tailed fox approach him.
"Knuckles, Robotnik is down for the count - for now, anyway! Have you found the emeralds?!"
Knuckles pointed over a giant chasm. An escape pod door had just closed and was launching with the emeralds inside it!
"We have to go after them!"
The two jumped into an escape pod and Tails programmed it to follow the emeralds.
* * * * *
Jam sped through the rocket until he came to the cockpit at the front of the rocket.
"This must be it." said jam.
FZZZT "Control center, can you hear us?" FZZZT came a voice through the intercom. It was Tails.
"Tails?" Jam pressed a button on the intercom. "Where are you?"
FZZZT"We're on an escape pod chasing after the emeralds!"FZZZT This time the voice belonged to Knuckles.
"What?" Jam could see an escape pod chasing another escape pod. He shot at the first one to slow it down.
Tails' and Knuckles' pod caught up to the now damaged emerald carrier.
FZZZT"Almost got it!"FZZZT Tails said.
Sonic ran into the control room. "We've gotta hurry and land this baby!" He grabbed the steering wheel and hit some buttons. The rocket shook.
Just then, the emerald carrier was shot by another ship. It was the black and yellow ship that had escaped earlier.
The emerald carrier crash landed toward the moon.
FZZZT"OH NOOO! WE LOST IT"FZZZT cried Tails through the intercom.
"Hedgehog! Unhand my steering wheel!" Robotnik said angrily.
Jam turned, and seeing the pudgy egg lover, jumped up and stung him.
"OWWW!" Robotnik's eyes welled up. "No time for crying!" he wimpered to himself. He attacked Sonic's chair.
While dodging the attack, Sonic's hand slipped and hit some buttons.
"NOOOO!!" Robotnik cried again. "What have you done?!!"
Eggman's rocket changed course and headed straight for the moon.
"MY ROCKET!!" Robotnik was mad. "You will pay for this, hedgehog!!!"
Sonic turned to Jam. "We've gotta get off here or we'll be in danger!"
"I read you loud and clear." He grabbed the intercom. "TAILS PICK US UP AT THE ESCAPE BAY!"
FZZZT"Got it Jam!"FZZZT
Sonic and Jam ran toward the escape bay, while Robotnik tried to get his rocket back on track.
Several robots were in the halls, but Sonic and Jam swerved under and through them, somehow managing to stay at the same pace.
"OVER HERE!" Tails shouted from the escape bay.
Sonic and Jam lept over a couple more robots and bounced off some springs and into the escape pod.
"Safe!" Sonic said, whiping the sweat from his forehead.
"For now blue boy." Knuckles face was serious.
The team watched as Robotnik's Rocket crash landed into the moon.
"All thanks to you Sonic." Jam smiled.
"Yup. Gimme some sugar Jam!" Sonic smiled back and held his fist out.
Jam punched it.
"OWW. Not so hard next time, its not bloody knuckles."
"HAHA. should we go clean this mess up?"
"Sure thing" Sonic looked at tails. "Next stop... THE MOON!!"
"Yee haw!!" said Tails, pushing some buttons.
"I love my job" Sonic said, winking at the camera(the audience).
Sonic and the Prince of Jellyfish: Part 10
"Whats wrong Tails?" Sonic asked as the four heroes entered the moon's gravitational pull.
"The pod is out of juice!" Tails said, pushing buttons on the control pad. "We're gonna crash!" Sonic helped hold the steering wheel steady.
"Everybody get your seat belts on!" Jam directed.
"Everyone hold onto your hardhats! We're going down!" Tails flipped the power off to conserve energy.
The ship nosedived towards the moon's surface. When it close enough to the ground, Tails flipped the power back on and tried to save the landing. His plan worked! Sort of. The ship leveled out and hit the ground bouncing. It drove into a crater on the dark side of the moon. The airbags released with gunsmoke.
"Is everyone alive?" Sonic asked, jumping out of the cockpit with a space suit on.
Tails said: "I'm okay! I'm okay. Um otay."
Knuckles said: "Never better. I have a cut on my arm, but i'll be okay."
Jam said: "That was fun!! Next time I want to drive!"
Each member had on a space suit except for Jam. His magic coin let him breath even in outer space. The water froze on the outer layer, giving him a frosted, glowing shimmer.
"This reminds me of a Bugs Bunny movie..." Sonic said, looking at Jam.
"Which one?" Tails asked.
"Who is Bugs Bunny?" Jam asked.
"Its not important..." Sonic stared off into outer space.
"So... We should hurry and find those emeralds!" Knuckles said, finally.
"Robotnik landed in Tycho Crater" Tails said. "It is on the south side of the bright side of the moon. We should hurry."
"Got it," Sonic said, getting ready to dash. But when he started running, he moonwalked 30 feet into the air and then floated face first into some moon rocks.
"That looks fun!" Jam said, jumping up and down.
"Haha WEEEE!" Tails was attempting to fly in the moon's lesser gravity.
"This is not the time guys. Once we beat Robotnik and get the emeralds, THEN we can celebrate." Knuckles said, focusing on the goal.
"Fine lets go -- that way!" Tails pointed.
* * * * *
The four heroes could easily tell when they got to the bright side of the moon. It was a huge difference.
On the way, they fought many robots. The droids were building a new launch pad so Robotnik could leave the moon.
The team slipped through 'Silicone Valley" and chipped there way through "Silicon Hills".
After a short journey, they made it to Tycho Crater. But it was too late. Robotnik had likewise regrouped from the crash and had in front of him the 7 Chaos Emeralds. And in his hand, he held the one and only Master Emerald.
"Greetings, pests. I'm glad you could join me!" Robotnik thundered as he saw the four heroes arrive.
"Eggman!" Sonic growled, bloodthirstier than ever.
"Unhand those emeralds you thief!" Knuckles demanded.
"Feisty tone of voice... For someone who is about to be whiped out of the solar system!" Robotnik thundered, this time louder. "I have here in my hand, the Master Emerald!"
"You can't do much with just that!" Sonic said. You need rings too!
"Oh, we have rings..." Robotnik stuck out his pudgy belly. "Bring them out boys!!"
Several robots began dumping barrels full of rings over the emeralds. When the pile was sufficiently large, Robotnik reached over to place the Master Emerald on top of the pile. But he waited to set it down.
"Oh... but wait. There's one more thing!" Robotnik said.
Robotnik's henchmen wheeled out a large box, and a large machine.
"Feast your eyes on this!" At the robot master's signal, the box was opened.
"BERT!!!" Sonic recognized the eagle he had rescued earlier.
"SONIC!!!" cried the eagle, tears once again in his eyes.
"So you've already met!" Robotnik laughed. And then he dumped the eagle into the machine. It whistled and beeped for 30 seconds.
"You won't get away with this Eggman!!" Sonic scowled.
When the machine was done, it let out some steam. The doors then opened up releasing a winged robot encased in an eggshell.
"I would like to introduce you to my newest creation!" Robotnik said with his hand stretched out over the robotic eagle. "Say hello to Desert-Eggal-Hawa-tuu-take-take*-322!!!" (*Hawa-tuu-take-take is a deity from Easter Island. His name means 'Chief of the Eggs')
"You suck at naming things."
The bird responded by pulling out a semi-automatic pistol and aiming it at the hedgehog.
"How about I call you... EGGBERT!!" Apparently the eggal liked the name and put his gun away.
"You're forgetting the best part, hedgehog." Robotnik finally placed the Master Emerald atop the pile.
"NOOO!" Knuckles yelled.
A bright Green light engulfed the moon, and finally circled around the Evil Doctor before dissipating.
Dr. Robotnik's eyes turned green and the sky thundered. "Now, for the grand Finale!"
* * * * *
Sonic and the Prince of Jellyfish: Part 11
Robotnik towered over Sonic, green eyes glaring and evil mouth sneering.
"Hedgehog, you've messed with me for the last time!" Robotnik picked up his giant foot and stomped down hard on Sonic.
"You still haven't learned, Robotnik!" Sonic said, sardonically. He moved quickly over towards the pile of rings and emeralds. "This should even the fight!" Yellow light surrounded him.
"That won't help you this time, blondie!" Robotnik glowed and powered up further. But then a look of shock hit him. "Why don't I feel any stronger?"
"You need to lose some weight, fatty" Sonic rammed into Robotnik, sending him backwards. Robotnik lost his balance and almost fell into the crater.
Robotnik seemed to gain some understanding. "I see. My power is not increased speed or strength - Its Intelligence!" MWAHAHAHA
"That won't help you on THIS battlefield!" Sonic jumped towards Robotnik again.
Eggbert flew in front of Sonic, pulling his pistol back out and shooting it pistol at the hedgehog's heart.
Robotnik turned and ran towards the almost completely repaired rocket.
"WHAAA" Sonic stopped mid-run to dodge the eggal's bullet.
"Hang on Sonic!" Tails said. He flew towards the pile of emeralds and powered up. Several of the robots cracked open and birds flew out, surrounding Tails. "YOU THINK YOU CAN HANDLE THIS, EGGBERT?" Tails said as his bird friends nose-dived towards the desert eggal.
"Don't kid yourself" The eggal chief shot the little bird's wing and it fell to the ground. Fortunately, the power of the emeralds had protected it and it was unharmed.
"Watch out eggal!" said Knuckles, who was now powered up as well. He punched the eggal hard, but its shell protected it from the damage.
What do i do? Jam thought. He too, touched the emeralds. But they didn't do anything. At least he thought. The coin around his neck cracked. And the water subsided. i'm... suf...focating...
"Jam!" Tails cried, running to help. "Sonic do something!"
"I'm trying tails! Move him away from the emeralds! I don't think he can handle it!"
Tails dragged Jam away from the emeralds. The flow of water slowly poured back out. Apparently, being too close to the emeralds had broken the Atlantean spell cast on it.
"Keep an eye on him tails! Knuckles you go after Robotnik"
Knuckles ran towards the rocket and punched a hole in it. He jumped inside and looked for Eggman.
Sonic dodged another bullet. "Man what is this guys' weakness?" Sonic said to himself. "That shell is almost impenetrable."
"DIE, hedgehog!" said the eggal, flying over Sonic and kicking the back of his head. Sonic dodged, but noticed that the eggal limped slightly afterwards.
Sonic remembered putting the cast on Bert. "Thats it!" Sonic said to himself. The blue hedgehog aimed himself the eggal's leg. He suicide bombed its heel. Eggbert fell forward, screaming in pain. Sonic knew that Bert was still in there somewhere.
The eggal recovered and flew up into the air and shot three shots at Sonic.
"That's it..." Sonic said, annoyed. "This is gonna hurt me more than it hurts you, Berty!" Sonic sprung up into the air and grabbed onto the eggals wings. He shifted his weight, forcing Eggbert straight into the ground.
* * * * *
Inside the rocket, Knuckles was hot on Robotnik's trail.
"WHERE ARE YOU HIDING, JELLY BELLY?" Knuckles snarled. This was not his idea of fun. He punched another wall and it collapsed. He could overhear a voice coming from the room above him.
Robotnik: That's right, Robee, the information I'm sending you is encrypted. Keep it safe, everything is going according to plan.
Robey: Yes King Robotnik, anything you say, oh round one!
Knuckles punched the ceiling.
"WHAT?" Robotnik ended the transmission. "Echidna... You shouldn't listen in on other people's phone calls!" Robotnik hit a few buttons on his egg mobile's control pad and it started hovering in the air. Then it raced out the door.
The rocket began to break apart, revealing a giant robot. Knuckles punched his way out before the Robot finally stood up revealing a 30 foot tall Eggdroid.
"Feast your eyes on M.E.C.H.A.!" Robotnik laughed in his seat. "This is the prototype for my new masterpiece!"
"I don't think i've ever seen you laugh this much, fatty." Knuckles shot a dirty look at Robotnik.
Knuckles fought the M.E.C.H.A. fist to fist. It was a common street brawl.
Knuckles was able to get the upper hand after about 3 minutes. First in the shoulders, then the chest, and finally a good blow to the face. M.E.C.H.A. was strong, but Knuckles was stronger.
* * * * *
Jam was finally coming to. "What happened?" Jam asked. "I feel like my chest just caved in."
"Jam, you don't have lungs!" Tails pointed out.
"How do I breath?"
"How do you talk?"
"What happened?" Jam asked again.
"You got too close to the emeralds and it rejected the spell on your coin. The water that normally surrounds you stopped flowing. But after I took you away from the emeralds you were fine"
Jam looked around and saw the chaos around him.
"But, I want to help you! I feel like dead weight!!"
"Sonic said to just stay here and don't get hurt!"
Jam looked at Tails. He started crying.
"Don't cry Jam, I'll start crying!" Tails' eyes watered up as well.
"I DON'T WANT TO BE DEAD WEIGHT" Jam cried. "I'M JAMIE STICKIN' COLLINS!!!" His voice shook the air around him. His face glowed.
Nearby, the emeralds glowed brightly, shining the familiar green light across the moon. And then the light dissipated. The chaos emeralds shattered one by one.
The aura around Tails faded. His bird friends flew off.
Jam ran towards Robotnik as quickly as his jelly legs could take him. "HERE I COME, EGGMAN!"
Sonic and the Prince of Jellyfish: Part 12
"Still fighting?" Sonic smiled, dodging another bullet from the desert eggal.
"As if I would lose to a hedgehog!" said Eggbert. The two were running circles around eachother, neither one giving any leeway.
Sonic could feel himself slowing down. "Whats going on?" Sonic asked to himself, just barely dodging a bullet from the desert eggal's pistol. "This isn't good..." Sonic looked back and saw the green flash of light and then he watched the chaos emeralds each crack.
"Whats wrong Sonic? Run out of juice?" The eggal beeped and held his [istol point blank at the hedgehog's head. He pulled the trigger.
"Whats wrong Eggbert? Out of bullets?" Sonic asked, hiding his relief. He swiftly jerked the gun out of the eggal's hand, breaking it. He was no longer glowing yellow, but there was something different about him. His fur was a dark blue and residual bright sparks lept from spike to spike. He resembled the night sky itself.
"Guess we play fair then" The robot suggested.
"As if one of Robotnik's creations would play fair." Sonic once again aimed for the Eggal's leg. The eggal fell backwards into Tycho Crater. "Just stay there... Please don't get back up until we handle Robotnik..." Sonic prayed to himself.
* * * * *
Jam arrived to where Knuckles was fighting M.E.C.H.A. Tails was not far behind.
"Knuckles seems to be holding his own. I'm going to go after Robotnik." Jam said to Tails. He was determined to prove his worth to team sonic.
The jiggly Jell-O lept up behind Robotnik and smacked him as hard as he could. "End this fight Robotnik! You've played with my friends for the last time!"
"YOU!" Robotnik sneered. "I don't even know who you are!"
In the background, Knuckles had managed to destroy M.E.C.H.A. even without the power of the emeralds.
"I am Jam!" The sticky fish stood tall, his tentacles streaming in the moon's wind. Frosty water washed around him. "Let my friends go!"
Now Sonic had arrived and was standing next to tails.
"Or... I... Will... OBLITERATE YOU!"
"I'd like to see you try."
Jam lept up and hugged onto Robotnik with all of his arms. "HIT IT!"
Each of the heroes swung at the now immobile robot. A huff of air left Robotnik's chest from the blow. His eyes seemed to pop out from his skull a little.
"And he's down." Sonic said, whiping the sweat from his forehead. It was finally over.
They put him the evil egg lord in an escape pod. Tails programmed it to head straight into outerspace, or "out of the ballpark" as Sonic had asked him to do.
Meanwhile, robots were still running around Tycho Crater, picking up the pieces. Sonic went to check on Bert, or "Desert-Eggal-Hawa-Tuu-Take-Take-322" But he was gone.
"I have a feeling that's not the last we'll see of Robotnik." Sonic said.
"I have a feeling you're right." Knuckles agreed.
* * * * *
The heroes picked up the shards of emeralds from the pile, but the shards collapsed and turned to dust.
Knuckles cried as the Master Emerald's remains drifted into outerspace.
Jam thought they would be mad at him. He felt completely responsible. But instead, Knuckles hugged him and just cried some more.
When the team thought that they had done all they could do, Tails fixed up an escape pod and set its course back home. The team released all of the prisoners held at Easter Island and went back to knothole village.
"Do you think you'll stay here?" Tails asked Jam.
"Once spring is over, I should probably leave." Jam said. "I have some 'unfinished business' to take care of back at home."
"If they give you any trouble" Sonic said, putting his hand on Jam's shoulder. "Then I will be right down to clear your mess up."
"Sonic, you can't swim!!" Tails laughed.
"Shh, Tails they don't know that yet!"
The heroes all smiled and congratulated each other on a job well done.
But as their thoughts turned to Angel Island, they realized that their fight had just begun.
