Chapter 4: Shadow and Shade (And something about a wolf)
Eggman: So thats the part where I-
Sonic: Yeah we dont care anymore. So what do we do?
Eggman: The Marauders are using the Chaos Emeralds to drag the Master Emerald, and Angel Island around it, toward Metropolis! Mainly because they cant risk getting beat up by all the GUN guys in Mystic Ruins.
Tails: I could take us to there, but the Tornado isnt up to code.
Knuckles: Itd help if you didnt use rope for seatbelts.
Tails: Okay Knuckles! Go build your own plane! And then you can make the seatbelts out of cotton for all I care!
Knuckles: Well maybe I will!
Big: Uh! I wanna build a plane!
Big goes over to the defeated Swatbots and sits down, and then starts playing with their remains.
Eggman: Its too dangerous to fly there! Well fix your plane and then we can fly there!
Sonic: I dont know if we should tru-
Tails/Knuckles: All right.
Eggman: Even though it should take some time, by the time youre ready to go well be ready.
Soon enough, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Eggman are at the Blue Ridge Zone.
Knuckles: So this is whats left of Station Square.
Eggman: Its just never the same once youve terrorized it a few times.
They all run over to Shadow.
Sonic: Got ya!
Shadow: Not now Sonic!
Sonic: Dont even! I can outrun you any time!
Shadow: Well I can outfight you!
Eggman: Well break your SHANANANANANA KNEES-KNEES!
Knuckles punches Eggman like back in Chapter 1.
Eggman: PINGAS! Youre
Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles all beat up Shadow. Eggman crawls over to him and bops him on the knee with a wrench.
Shadow: Grr! Not here!
Shadow runs off.
Tails: Youre the only one that can catch him, Sonic!
Sonic: You dont say
Sonic runs after Shadow and tackles him.
Sonic: Got ya! What are you doing anyway?
Shadow: Im looking for Omega, all right?
Shadow: Omega! E-123 Omega!
Sorry, not ringing a bell.
Knuckles: I think hes trying to trick us.
Hes a giant robot that was built by Eggman! He hates Eggman and wants to destroy all other robots made by him!
Tails: We wouldve heard of a robot that hates Eggman.
Shadow: He was following me and Rouge around in Sonic Heroes and Sonic 2006!
Oh, that guy! What about him?
Sonic: No wait! What happened to this, Omega? If that IS his real name
Shadow: Ugh! He went to Metropolis but was shut down, and somehow the Marauders are involved!
Sonic: Hey! Marauders! We hate them too! Join us!
Shadow: Do I get any dramatic scenes against a villain?
Sonic: You get a part in a pirate side ques-
Eggman is removed from the party to make room for Shadow.
Shadow: Ha, Im better than you!
Eggman: I hate that hedgehog! And this time I dont mean you, Sonic.
Eggman goes over to pout. Meanwhile, the party heads over to the path that leads into Metropolis
But some Marauders are in the way! One of them looks different.
Apparent leader: Thats far enough.
This should be interesting.
Knuckles: Shade! What have you done with the Chaos Emeralds?
Shade: Theyre safe.
Shades helmet retracts into a headband. Shes an echidna!
Knuckles: Holy Chaos! Youre an echidna?! But how?! Im the last one!
Shade: But here we are.
Marauders: For the record, so are we-
Knuckles: No one asked you!
Shade: Were not going to fall for-
Knuckles uses Uppercut while Shade is talking.
Shade: Ow! You wont-
Shadow uses Chaos Spear on Shades friends and then Sonic Axe Kicks Shade.
Shade: Enough! The Nocturnus cant be interru-
Tails: Gasp! They have a real name for them selves!
Sonic: Thats NO good!
Shade presses a button and warps away. The button causes explosives to go off that block the path. Sonic gets a message on his communicator.
Eggmans voice: The snow in the other part of Blue Ridge Zone should conveniently melt now, so you can enter Metropolis through there!
Everyone heads over there and finds out that Eggman wasnt lying to them.
Shadow: Okay, this code looks very complex so What are you doing?!
Tails: Hacking into the door.
Eggmans voice: Guys, you can never EVER return to Blue Ridge Zone, or any of the areas youve been once you go through this door, unless you start a new save file all over again. So be sure youre rea-
Sonic and the party rush in.
