#26 - Countdown to Chaos
Tanjou! Super Sonic (誕生! スーパーソニック)
Sep 28, 2003(JST)
With Chris as his prisoner, Eggman goes out to meet Lucky who has found the final Chaos Emerald. However, Eggman comes under attack by Sonic and several government robots. Lucky gives the seventh Chaos Emerald to Sonic. Unwilling to be pushed around, Eggman transforms the Egg Fort II into E-99 Egg Emperor (Eggsterminator in the English version). Sonic can outrun it easily, but then Eggman powers it up with a small amount of power from each of his six Chaos Emeralds (Green, Blue, Yellow, Cyan, Purple and Red). The government robots are destroyed, and Sonic starts to get pulverized by the super fast robot. However, the Egg Emperor starts to take in too much power from the Emeralds and starts going out of control, while still pummeling Sonic. All bruised and beaten up, Sonic is finally thrown into the sea. Chris, unable to bear the sight, breaks free of his restraints and grabs the Chaos Emeralds, jumping out the window. He is caught by Rouge, but the Chaos Emeralds fall into the sea. Chaos Control suddenly builds, as the six Chaos Emeralds dropped by Chris join with the seventh one still in Sonic's hand. Sonic emerges as Super Sonic (the first time Sonic is in his super form, according to the series and the surprised looks of his friends' faces) and destroys the Egg Emperor. Sonic then heals the wounded Chris in a white void, and tells him that he can finally go back to his own world. The boy breaks down in tears and begs Sonic to stay or take him to his world, because he claims that if he leaves, he will not be able to do anything. Sonic fades away, but when the void clears, Chris finds himself on a newly-appeared misty island, and sees Sonic (back in his normal form) walking out of the mist towards him.
