#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Sonic the Hedgehog  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

Sonic, an anthropomorphic and supersonic hedgehog, found Emerl on a beach. When
he tried to talk to him, Emerl said, "Show me your power." When Sonic did, he
unknowingly established a Link with him; and from there on out, Emerl only
answered to Sonic or those who Sonic explicitly said to obey.

After learning from Tails that Emerl's strength and intelligence is dependent
on how many of the seven Chaos Emeralds he has, Sonic attempts to get all of
them to help Emerl.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Miles "Tails" Prower  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

Tails, who got his nickname via the two tails he has, is an expert with
anything and everything mechanical. When enough Chaos Emerald shards have been
collected, he can fuse them back together to recreate the Emeralds as they
were originally.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Rouge the Bat  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

Rouge is a government spy, though more than that, she's a treasure hunter, of
which she would like to believe she is the best in existence. She owns a club
in Night Babylon called 'Club "Rouge"', and let's Shadow stay there after she
finds him in the Gimme Shelter.

She gets Sonic to establish a Link between her and Emerl, and through that
Link, she intends to make Emerl the "ultimate robot thief".


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Knuckles the Echidna  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

Knuckles is the guardian of the Master Emerald (though not too much emphasis
is put on that in this game). He is quick to act, and easily tricked; the
latter trait being something which Eggman exploits repeatedly, in this and many
other 'Sonic the Hedgehog' games.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Amy Rose  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

Amy's a hedgehog like Sonic, and speaking of Sonic, she's absolutely obsessed
with him (it seems more obvious here than the other games, somehow). She is
also on a new diet program that involves a routine called "boxercise"; which
she makes Cream do with her. Once Emerl starts learning to talk better, Amy
gets him to help her with measuring weight loss and such.

When Amy first met Emerl, she thought that Sonic got him as practice for their
(Sonic & Amy's) eventual baby.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Cream the Rabbit  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

Cream is friends with a Chao named Cheese, and lives with Amy in an apartment
in Central City. Amy tends to force Creamr to workout with her during her
"boxercising" sessions - something which Cream doesn't like at all.

Being a very anti-violence person (...animal), Cream refuses to fight, because
she doesn't like it when people are sad or hurt. But when Emerl got nearly
killed by not fighting (he was trying not to upset Cream), she decided she
should fight also, so that he wouldn't come to harm.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Shadow the Hedgehog  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

Shadow originally appeared in Sonic Adventure 2, and at the end, he fell from
outer space due to wearing out his Super Form in the battle with BioLizard
(the prototype of the Ultimate Life Form). It was assumed that he had died,
but then he reappeared in Sonic Heroes.

There, he was sealed inside a capsule in one of Eggman's bases, and Rouge and
Omega set him free (Omega doing his part in a roundabout way). At the end of
the Dark Story, Rouge and Omega found a room full of Shadow clones on the Egg
Fleet. Rouge was depressed, thinking that the Shadow she found was a fake, but
then Omega said, "You know the thing about cloning... the original must exist
somewhere."

As Eggman revealed in Shadow the Hedgehog, the Shadow in SA2, SH, ShTH, and SB
were all the same one (the original). After Shadow fell from space, Eggman sent
one of his robots to save him - he just lost his memories is all.

Also told in ShTH, is that Shadow was created by both Gerald Robotnik (who we
knew about before), and Black Doom. Doom helped Gerald with Project Shadow by
infusing him (Shadow) with his own blood, and in exchange, asked Gerald to one
day have Shadow give him the Chaos Emeralds. He wanted them so that, when the
Black Comet returned in fifty years, he could teleport it down to the surface
of the Earth.

In Sonic Battle, Shadow says that, as a weapon of war, he should be ruthless;
thus he wonders why it was that Gerald gave him a heart. Rouge found a document
that Gerald has written, which described that he (Gerald) wasn't interested in
making weapons, but rather mere living beings. He hoped that no matter how
corrupt the users of weapons would become, the weapons themselves would remain
pure and not yield to their nature. This is why he gave both Shadow and Gizoid
pieces of Maria's soul.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Chaos Gamma  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

Chaos Gamma is an E-102 Gamma look-alike, but despite the resemblance and
being created from related parts, he is not him. CG wants revenge on Emerl
for taking his Chaos Emerald/shard away from him.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Gizoid / Emerl  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

Emerl, as Sonic names him, is a robot that Gerald found in a ruin that was made
made by an ancient civilization. He was constructed for war and was given the
ability to absorb weaponry; or as Gizoid said it, "I represent all things."

While Emerl and Gizoid are simply different names for the same robot, they can
also be used to compare his personalities. "Emerl" is the cocky, arrogant robot
that Sonic has grown to know; "Gizoid" is the weapon of war that was made in
the ancient past.

Gizoid is capable of establishing a "Link" with the first person who shows it
their power; though that Link can be overridden should someone of greater
strength show themselves to Gizoid. Also, whoever initiated the original Link
has the aptitude to command the Gizoid to create other Links, granted that the
new ones won't be to the same extent at the first.

When Gerald found Gizoid, he was unable to completely erase its destructive
side, so to keep it from harming the world he put into place an alternate
method of removing it; if Gizoid were to ever acquire the seven Chaos Emeralds
and expose the violent side of its being, the weapon aspect could be expunged
by ordering Gizoid to, "Bring hope to humanity". Those were the last words that
Maria said when she died aboard the ARK, so that's what Gerald decided to use
for the password.

Also, according to Gerald's diary, Gizoid was the cause of the destruction of
the "Fourth Great Civilization".


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Doctor Eggman Robotnik  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

At the very beginning of the game, Eggman threw the Gizoid out onto the beach
in frustration, as he couldn't get him to respond to his commands. However, he
took some of Gizoid's data and used it to create "Phi"; numerous silver copies
of Gizoid. Later he realized that he shouldn't have been so brash with him, but
by then Sonic had already established a Link, so there was nothing he could do.

Eggman's goal this time around is to activate the Final Egg Blaster, which is
an immensely powerful cannon inside the Death Egg.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Gerald Robotnik  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

Gerald was a scientist, and was both Eggman and Maria's grandfather. He lived
aboard the first Bernoulli space-colony named "ARK"; which, at the time of its
creation, was the most advanced research center of its kind. Not very many
people were aware, but Gerald and the others on the Colony were secretly
developing powerful weapons - among them, a laser with the capability to
decimate an entire planet; codenamed as, "The Eclipse Cannon".

He was developing that Cannon because of his meeting with Black Doom some time
prior. Back then, he was working on "Project Shadow" (a.k.a. the Ultimate Life
Form), which was intended to be an immortal being who could possibly be a cure
for Maria, but he needed help. So he asked Black Doom for his assistance, and
Doom agreed under a condition - that in the future, Shadow would give the seven
Chaos Emeralds to him. Gerald said he would, and so Doom used his blood to
bring Shadow the Hedgehog to life. What Gerald didn't know, was that Doom
wanted the Emeralds so that he could teleport the "Black Comet" down to Earth,
and eradicate the humans. So, in an attempt to lessen the effects of the
arrangement, Gerald began construction of the Eclipse Cannon. (He intended for
it to be used to obliterate the Comet).

But when GUN shut down the laboratory, and Maria died, Gerald went insane; she
was the only thing he had left to live for, and with her gone, his life was
meaningless. He made modifications to the Eclipse Cannon's programming, so that
if its power were ever boosted by all the Chaos Emeralds, it would begin a
descent towards Earth, and destroy the planet. He also installed a safeguard;
should anyone try to deactivate the program, the BioLizard - the prototype of
the Ultimate Life Form - would attach itself to the ARK, and override its
controls, thus making it impossible to alter its course.

As was detailed in this game, Gerald never wanted to make weapons for war. So
when the government forced him to use his abilities to create weapons, he took
his own initiative and infused them with hearts; both Shadow and the Gizoid
were given fragments of Maria's soul.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Maria Robotnik  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

Fifty years ago, Maria lived on the ARK with her grandfather, and befriended
one of his research projects; the Ultimate Life Form, "Shadow". At that time,
Maria was suffering from a terminal illness called NIDS, and would eventually
die from it; Shadow was created in Gerald's study on immortality, and was
intended to, if successful, be the finding of a cure for Maria.

When GUN invaded the space colony and killed everyone who knew about Project
Shadow, she was brought near-death. She managed to get Shadow inside an escape
pod, and launch him out of the colony, despite him wanting to stay with her.

Before she died, she said the following as her last words...

"Shadow... I beg of you... please, do it for me... for a better future... for
all the people who live on that planet... give them a chance to be happy. Let
them live for their dreams. Shadow, I know you can do it. That's the reason
that you were brought into this world. Sayonara, Shadow, the Hedgehog."


#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Phi  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#

The Phi are the copies of Emerl/Gizoid that Eggman made. They are silver in
color, and their vocabulary is limited to "Destroy!" and similar words.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Chaos  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#

Chaos originally appeared in Sonic Adventure 1 as the guardian of the Chao and
the Master/Chaos Emerald/s. When the Echidnas came to the shrine to take the
Emeralds, they hurt the Chao there as well; at which point Chaos went berserk.
Tikal sealed it inside the Master Emerald so that it wouldn't harm the world.

Later on, Chaos somehow escaped the ME and Eggman took control of him. After
it acquired all the Chaos Emeralds and became "Perfect Chaos", as well as
rebuking Eggman's grasp on him, he was defeated by Sonic in his Super form.
Tikal then descended from the sky and took Chaos with her into the afterlife.

Somehow, he has returned again in SB for a fairly brief cameo/fight. And
apparently, he can come back whenever a "great crisis" presents itself.

-()- = When a symbol like ! or ? appears above a characters head, these
       brackets will represent it.

{Text} = When something is spoken, as apposed to being written.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Description note  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

At certain points, I've used the description "crackles" for robots. That way
of describing it is, I'm sure, far from the best way of saying it, but it was
the only thing that came to mind.

What it's supposed to mean, is... "The robot trembles as electricity crackles
up its body." This primarily (if not entirely) happens when one of the robots
in the game becomes critically injured (i.e., Chaos Gamma after being beaten
in a fight, Emerl when he's about to die, etc).

So, hopefully, that description makes a tad bit more sense now.

Short answer: No, I do not think it is.

2. This section will contain heavy spoilers for the following games...
   1: Sonic Adventure 2 (SA2)
   2: Sonic Heroes (Heroes)
   3: Shadow the Hedgehog (ShTH)
   4: Sonic Battle (Battle)

3: Canon refers to official continuity within a story. For example, the Sonic
   the Hedgehog comics are not canon, as some of them cannot coexist with the
   videogames (which came first), and also that Sonic Team didn't make them.

4. Everything in this section is simply a few educated guesses of mine; it's
   not as if Sonic Team included a note with the game saying, "Yes, this is an
   official part of the timeline." With that in mind, I might be totally wrong
   and Battle actually is canon... but I may also be right.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  02: Timeline  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

It's important to know where Battle fits in with the rest of the games that
Shadow has appeared in (IF it were canon), as I will refer to it later on.

-    Sonic Adventure 2 > Sonic Heroes > Shadow the Hedgehog > Sonic Battle    -

Some people have said that Battle happens before ShTH, however that is almost
impossible. The only way that could work is if after Sonic Heroes (in which
Shadow had amnesia), he suddenly remembered everything, then forgot it again
after Battle, and THEN remembered his past AGAIN in ShTH.

(And no, Battle can't come before Heroes as that game was confirmed to come
directly after SA2, and SA2 was Shadow's original debut.)


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  03: Primary reasons why Battle isn't canon  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

1. Shadow put his past behind him in ShTH ("Goodbye ___forever___, Shadow the
   Hedgehog"), so he wouldn't be as incredibly hyped up about Gizoid as he was
   (he could have taken some interest in the moment, sure, but not go as far as
   he did).

2. Throughout Battle, Shadow's recovering from an injury. What injury? I would
   assume it was from falling from the ARK in SA2 (there wasn't really anything
   else it could've been), but since Battle happens after ShTH (IF it occurs at
   all), he wouldn't have anything to recover _from_ (because by the time ShTH
   happened, he didn't seem to still be injured from falling.

3. (Note: This reason is debatable since it makes an assumption)

   Battle and ShTH give different circumstances leading up to Maria's death. In
   ShTH, Maria died after the level Lost Impact; the Artificial Chaos were
   running rampant and destroying sections of the ARK. After the mission was
   completed, we saw Maria falling in the research facility (after being shot
   and putting Shadow in the escape capsule).

   In Battle, Gerald's Journal #6 says... "My worst fears have come true. The
   Gizoid has absorbed enough weaponry and technology that it has started to go
   out of control. The resulting rampage resulted in the destruction of most of
   the "Ark.""

   Then in Journal #7... "I have heard there was an accident at the research
   facility. ... ... ... Everything... Everything is gone. My own Maria's name
   was among the list of casualties."

   While it doesn't say _exactly_ that the 'accident at the research facility'
   was Gizoid's doing, it's relatively safe to assume that, since they were
   only one Journal apart, it took that long for word of Maria's death (via the
   events of entry #6) to reach Gerald.

   Also, if the accident Battle spoke of was the Artificial Chaos' doing, I'd
   have expected a mention of the AC somewhere in the Journal.

$#  04: Possible counterargument to "2." (1)  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

Since Shadow was using the Chaos Emeralds for the entirety of ShTH, you could
say that it was thanks to them that he wasn't all injured and everything until
Battle, where he fought with just one Emerald and against stronger individual
opponents.

However, think about this... In SA2's ending, he was weak from fighting
BioLizard, thus he fell from space due to wearing out his Super form. I'd
assume that, if falling was what made him so weak in Battle, that he'd be even
weaker in ShTH (since it precedes Battle); but yet he managed to beat Devil
Doom effortlessly - something he couldn't do in SA2 (that is, keep his Super
form active).

Further, even with Sonic's help, Shadow wasn't strong enough in SA2 to maintain
his Super Form when he and Sonic teleported the ARK away - yet in ShTH, he
successfully warps the Black Comet without ANY help at all.

My point? Shadow utilized his Super form better in ShTH than SA2 - it was
fatigue that held him back in SA2; I take his improved performance in ShTH as a
sign that he wasn't weak at all from anything, or at the very least that he was
_less_ weak. Thus, it makes no sense why he would go on to Battle, in which he
was weaker than in either SA2 or ShTH - even to the point of being told that he
knew he wasn't well enough yet to be fighting.

$#  05: Possible counterargument to "2." (2)  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

It has been suggested that Shadow fell from space in SA2 because it was his
first time using his Super form, so then he used it properly in ShTH due to
experience with it. I doubt that that's why he fell, though, because several
times during the fight, other characters would comment about how he and Sonic
were running out of energy/Rings; thus, THAT appears more likely, as it's what
the characters themselves were saying.

Of course, there is the chance that he WAS running out of energy/Rings, but
actually fell because of lack of familiarity... it just seems more probable
that it was energy loss.

$#  06: Possible counterargument to "05:"  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

Some people have said that the reason Shadow performed so well in ShTH's end
was because he had been building up his strength throughout the game, and then
he wore out that power by fighting Devil Doom and using Chaos Control on the
Black Comet, thus why he was so weak in Battle.

However... Shadow seemed totally unfazed after fighting Devil Doom; I find it
unlikely that he built up his strength before facing DD, exhausted said
strength by fighting him, showed no signs of using up all his energy, but then
DID make it glaringly obvious by the time Battle rolled around.

It seems like, if this argument is true, that Shadow should have been a tad bit
more tired immediately after both fighting Devil Doom and CC'ing the Comet.

$#  07: Sonic Advance 3  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

One of the more common reasons used in arguments to (try to) prove that Battle
is canon is the fact that in Sonic Advance 3 (Sa3), there is a robot that
Eggman constructed which looks like Emerl (similar to the Phi, but it's got a
bit more color); so then people think that if Battle isn't canon, Sa3 can't
be either, and Sega just wouldn't do that or something.

That is not a very good reasoning, though, as if Sa3 weren't canon, it really
wouldn't affect anything in a major way - nothing noteworthy happened in Sa3,
thus it's all too easy to remove it from the official timeline.

However, there is a retort to that: Sonic Advance 2 WAS, indisputably, canon,
because it introduced Cream, and she reappeared multiple times in other canon
games - thus, some people have said that if Sa2 was canon, Sa3 must also be,
therefore Battle is as well.

The problem with that logic is that there is no reason that just because one
part of a series is canon, another related part has to be. Take Shadow the
Hedgehog's ten endings that have to be acquired before gaining access to Last
Story, for instance: in three of them, Shadow fights and defeats Black Doom.
That cannot be a canon ending, as in Last Story, Black Doom acts as if it
never happened and still seems to think Shadow wants to help him.

So... just because Sonic Advance 2 is canon doesn't mean that Sonic Advance 3
had to be; likewise, just because another game wouldn't be canon if Battle
wasn't, doesn't mean it is.

#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

No, not really.

First of all, ShTH was made AFTER Battle was, and it's the newest game in a
series that's most likely to be canon (not that it HAS to be, though).

Second, ShTH was declared by Sonic Team as the be-all-end-all to Shadow and his
past; because of that, it is definitely, indisputably canon - if there are ANY
discrepancies between it and another game, it gets top priority.

Finally, which seems more likely to have the most accurate information on
Shadow: the 2D fighting game partially produced by a third party whose primary
focus was on Gizoid, not Shadow... or the 3D game entirely produced by Sonic
Team that totally revolved around Shadow?

EGGMAN: That's it! I've already used your data to create a robot that does what
        I say. So I don't need you anymore!

EMERL: ... ... ...

* - They both fade out of view.

GAME: This is "Emerald Town"... The place where Sonic and his friends live. It
      looks like Eggman is up to no good with another evil scheme once again.

SONIC: OK, so I know this is an amazing robot. But what does it all mean? And

TAILS: Well, I know two things. 1: It is powered by Chaos Emeralds. Once we
       give it more "Chaos Emeralds," it will regain its energy and even be
       able to speak properly.

SONIC: Maybe that's why Eggman...

TAILS: My next discovery about this robot is even more stunning. This robot is
       capable of adopting attack techniques either by observation, or be being
       attacked by attack techniques.

SONIC: So what you mean is, if I kick him, he will learn my move, and kick just
       like I did. Am I following you right, Tails?

TAILS: That's right, Sonic! And on top of that, it can develop new moves based
       on the captured data!

SONIC: Well, that's cool, I guess. I should teach it to run in case it ever
       needs to run away.

TAILS: It can learn new attacks by pressing the "R Button"!

SONIC: So, it's able to even combine moves, such as using my jumping skill with
       your attack techniques...

TAILS: That's correct! But this robot's system seems to have some sort of
       limitations on the attack abilities it can learn. I believe it's somehow
       related to "Skill Points." But my computer broke down before I was able
       to confirm this. I guess my computer crashed because of the massive
       overload if data from the robot... ... This isn't just an ordinary
       robot, that's for sure...!

SONIC: Hmph... It all sounds so complicated, but basically this robot has the
       ability to learn our moves, right? If that's the case, then let's start

TAILS: What?

       out its abilities after all that training, right? Now, go!

       Let's head to "Knuckles' House" for now! We don't know when we're going
       to be attacked again, so let's set a stronger attack technique on you

          jewelry stores around town.

SONIC: H-hey... Just chill for a second Knuckles! This robot is powered by
       "Chaos Emeralds..."

KNUCKLES: {Gyah!} Shut up! I'm going to tear this rustbucket apart to teach it
          a lesson!

SONIC: Oh, boy... There's no stopping Knuckles once he gets all riled up. OK,
       listen up, Emerl. This guy won't listen to anybody who is weaker than he
       is. So if we want to talk to him about "Chaos Emeralds," you've got to
       beat him first. Don't worry. He's got lots of power, but his moves are
       simple to read. Watch for an opening, then hit him with a combo attack!
       But wait a second... Do you want to change any of your attack
       techniques? (Press the "R Button" to do so)

       powered by "Chaos Emeralds." And Eggman wants it.

SONIC: Not to mention Shadow and Rouge.

KNUCKLES: {*growl*} If Eggman and that thieving bat are involved, something
          really sneaky must be going on!

TAILS: *Sigh* Sonic's off to the beach again with Emerl... We still don't know
       much about Emerl. But I guess it isn't that important to Sonic... There
       was something odd about Emerl when we inserted the "Chaos Emerald..."
       But I can't do any further research because the computer in my lab is
       broken...  {OKAY!} -(!)- Wait a second! I can do a full examination if

       and Knuckles know what we discovered about you!

EMERL: Hurry! Hurry!

SONIC: Tails, what took you so long? What's going on?

TAILS: Sonic, you won't believe what I found out about Emerl.

* - Rouge appears behind Tails.

ROUGE: Emerl's the world's deadliest weapon!

TAILS: Rouge!

SONIC: You!

ROUGE: {Hi, sugar!} Hey!

SONIC: What are you talking about?

TAILS: Yeah, it's the truth! That's what I discovered at the Central Lab!

SONIC: A battle weapon?

ROUGE: Yes, and a very lethal one!

SONIC: No, I can't believe it! {Ah-ha!} He's just a robot, right? {Yeah!} You
       could change its insides real quick, and fix this problem, right?

TAILS: Actually, he's NOT just a robot... The lab computer got fried when Emerl
       was connected to it... And we were chased by Guard Robos when we
       accessed Emerl's data at the Central Lab!

SONIC: Seriously?

ROUGE: {Humph, all right!} But there is one way...

SONIC: Well, let me hear it!

ROUGE: "Chaos Emeralds"!

SONIC: -(!)- "Chaos Emeralds"?

ROUGE: That's right. Collect all 7 "Chaos Emeralds" and insert them into Emerl.

SONIC: What happens then?

ROUGE: Then we can reset Emerl and turn him into an ordinary robot, and erase
       all his data as a battle weapon.

SONIC: {Yeah!} Sounds like a plan! So how would we reset him?

ROUGE: {Hmph!} I... I don't know.

SONIC: {What?!} -(!)-  What? You don't know?

TAILS: {Okay!!} So all we have to do is find 7 "Chaos Emeralds" and then find
       a way to reset him!

ROUGE: Then, he'll be free, once and for all!

SONIC: Let me ask you one more thing, Rouge.

ROUGE: {Well, now!} What is it?

SONIC: What's in it for you by giving us all this information?

ROUGE: {Hmph!} You make it sound like I never do a good deed unless I profit
       from it.

SONIC: Am I wrong?

ROUGE: Well, I do good deeds sometimes.

SONIC: Well, I do good deeds... On occasion.

ROUGE: As you probably already know, Dr. Eggman is also hunting Emerl down.

SONIC: Eggman!

ROUGE: Yes. And he's still trying to do the same old thing.

TAILS: Conquer the world!

ROUGE: {*giggle*} Yes. And if he conquers the world, it'll make any job
       involving stealing jwels more difficult. So I guess I'm doing the world
       a big favor.

SONIC: {No way!} A big favor? You're a thief! And, you're after Emerl too,
       right?

ROUGE: {Hmph!} Hey, these accusations aren't very nice. And that kid over there
       knows that I'm more than just a thief.

SONIC: Is that true Tails?

TAILS: Y-yeah... I guess...

ROUGE: Oh, and can you finally introduce me to your little robot?

SONIC: -(?)- Don't you know Emerl already?

ROUGE: It... He won't even say "hello" to me unless youo9rder him to do so.

SONIC: Oh, yeah. He was like that with Tails too in the beginning. Emerl, come
       here!

EMERL: *gets behind Rouge* Come! Come!

SONIC: Listen. You have to listen to Rouge from now on, OK?

EMERL: Listen! Listen!

ROUGE: {giggle*} All right!

SONIC: -(?)- Hmm...

ROUGE: See ya!

SONIC: {What?!} H-hey Rouge! Don't you want to talk to him now?

ROUGE: No more time to chat now. Maybe some other time! *leaves*

EMERL: Some other time! Some other time!

KNUCKLS: *comes into view* What was that all about?

SONIC: That Rouge!

KNUCKLES: {*growl*} I wonder what that woman is up to now. Hey, Emerl, did she
          pull any kind of tricks on you?

EMERL: ... ... ...

KNUCKLES: {Gwa!} Hey, why won't you listen to me?!?

SONIC: {Yeah!} Ha ha ha! Just as Rouge said! Hey, Emerl! Ignore Knuckles! Just
       ignore him!

EMERL: Ignore! Ignore! Ignore! Ignore!

KNUCKLES: {Ugh...} Hmph, so you wanna put an end to this, eh?

SONIC: {Yes!} Bring it on!

* - Sonic & Knuckles go off of the screen.

EMERL: Let's play! Let's play!

TAILS: {Sonic...!} Come on! Knock it off, Sonic, Knuckles!

GAME: 3 days ago...

PRESIDENT: An ancient weapon, "Gizoid", which was sealed and misplaced 50 years
           ago, has been recovered by Eggman... You can get all the necessary
           information at the "Central Lab". You may have free access to the
           Central Lab with this pass. We're counting on you, Rouge. The safety
           of the Nation is in your hands.

ROUGE: {Well, now!} Yes, sir, Mr. President! By the way, don't forget about my
       reward!

PRESIDENT: ... ... ...


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Later: black screen  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

ROUGE: OK, now that I have official approval from my boss... {*giggle*} I can
       access the government computer system and gather all kinds of
       information on various treasures!

* - She goes into Central Lab.

ROUGE: Let's see... Information on unlocking the security system on that art
       gallery... Or maybe I should look up the National Museum first...? Hee
       hee! This is so exciting! I'm going to have all the information that'll
       allow me to gain access to all the treasures by the time I'm done here!
       Now Mr. Computer, tell me everything! {*giggle*}

COMPUTER: ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... *beep* Login error... This data
          is currently being accessed by another user...

ROUGE: What? How can that be? Come on! This is a government computer system. No
       one else should have access to it! What? Who could it be? How dare you!
       I'll find you! Confirm login username...

COMPUTER: Login username: Dr. Eggman

ROUGE: -(!)- Dr.? {Hmm, all right!} Aha! I guess I've got my work cut out for
       me! Let's see where he's accessing the computer from.

COMPUTER: Accessing route: "Highway"

ROUGE: Hey, that's just right around the corner. {Let's see whatcha got!} I
       guess I better go pay him a little visit.

EGGMAN: Hmph! I was right! I needed 7 "Chaos Emeralds" and the key word in
        order to "Link" with the "Gizoid" to resurrect it!! Dang it! I
        should've never tossed that thing away!

ROUGE: {Hi, sugar!} Hey, doctor! Long time no see!

EGGMAN: {Ugh.} Rouge? Sorry, but I'm quite busy right now.

ROUGE: {*giggle*} Heh... I'm sure you are, doctor...

EGGMAN: What're you babbling about?

ROUGE: You know, you're wanted by the government for questioning about a
       certain item.

EGGMAN: Hmph! I tossed that piece of junk at the beach already!

ROUGE: What? You threw it away?

EGGMAN: The world's deadliest weapon? What a joke! That worthless thing can't
        even listen to basic instructions! It's probably making friends with
        the crabs right about now!

ROUGE: With crabs?

EGGMAN: I used the raw data from that robot to build a much better robot. Its
        name is E121 "Phi"!

PHI: ... ... ...

ROUGE: {Hmph!} What an ugly contraption.

EGGMAN: These guys are powered by pieces of the "Chaos Emerald." I created
        "Phi" by using Emerald shards from the Chaos Emerald I crushed!

ROUGE: You created this...

EGGMAN: And I programmed them to collect all 7 "Chaos Emeralds"! In no time,
        I should have all 7 "Chaos Emeralds..." Oh, I forgot you're also
        looking for "Chaos Emeralds." So I must insist that you stay out of the
        way for a while.

ROUGE: Seriously, you don't think you can stop me, do you doctor?

EGGMAN: Hah! You haven't seen the power of my new creation! {Prepare to die!}
        Go Phii #1!

ROUGE: I guess it wasn't as tough as you thought it was I'll take this "Emerald
       Shard"!

EGGMAN: Dang... It looks like I need the original... I'll let you go this time,
        but I won't take it so easy on you the next time you get in my way!
        {So long, losers!} *leaves*

ROUGE: Get in your way? Hmmm... It could get awfully complicated if the doctor
       has already linked himself with the Gizoid first... I know he said that
       he tossed it on the beach, but... Oh, well, I better find out more
       about "Gizoid" using this pass! I can't let doctor take all the fun for
       himself.

SECURITY: Hey, you!

ROUGE: Here's my pass. Now leave me alone.

SECURITY: My apologies, madam!

* - Rouge goes inside the Lab.

ROUGE: OK, now where shall I begin?

COMPUTER: Searching Gizoid... Searching... Searching... Searching... Warning!
          Highly Confidential! Battle weapon discovered in ancient ruins...
          Called "Gizoid"... Technique to acquire all forms of weaponry is
          based on super-science technology... This process has no apparent
          limitations and will continue to loop indefinitely.

ROUGE: {Whew!} Hmm... Very interesting.

COMPUTER: Endless cycle... Continuing cycle causes overload which can lead
          to... Experiment created by Professor Gerald... Sealed by the
          government... Disappearance...

ROUGE: ... ... ... Professor Gerald... He's Shadow's creator. ... ... ... I
       think I may have hit the jackpot! I'm not all that interested in
       anything besides jewelry, but... This is something else. If I can train
       the robot to become the ultimate robot thief... All the jewelry in the
       world will be mine! So, where can I find this thing?

COMPUTER: "Delivery of power"... The output of its power is initiated by
          external contact, and from that point on, it will only take orders
          from the one who initiated the contact... This act is called,
          establishing a "Link." {Hmm, all right!} Hmm... Since the doctor
          still doesn't seemed to have created a "Link" with it, I better hurry
          to find it and make it mine. But if someone else finds it before me,
          it could get quite complicated...

COMPUTER: It will, however, take orders from others if permission is given by
          its original master...

ROUGE: I see... So I can make it mine as long as I get permission from its
       master. I better go find this Gizoid now. The doctor said that he
       tossed the Gizoid at the beach... I should head to "Emerald Beach."

EMERL: Home! Home!

ROUGE: That's right, this is your new home now.

EMERL: Sonic! Home! Sonic! Home!

ROUGE: {*giggle*} ...Yes! Now! Finally! The ultimate treasure is all mine! OK,
       I'm going to train you to become the ultimate robot thief! OK, let's get
       warmed up. Whenever you hunt for treasure, you'll always have to deal
       with Guard Robos. The doctor sold these Guard Robos just to make extra
       cash on the side... Anyway, they can be dangerous if you don't watch
       out. So let's begin practicing dealing with these guys first. Why don't
       you fight the Guard Robo I got here. Your goal is to defeat it "5 times"
       under a time limit. Are you ready?

EMERL: ... ... ...

ROUGE: What do you say to that?

       technique. Even if you've got the treasure, if you get caught, it means

GAME: It was discovered that Emerl needed "Chaos Emeralds." Hearing this, a
      spark of interest was triggered...

KNUCKLES: It needs "Chaos Emeralds"?! {Here I come!} There's no way I'm gonna
          sit this one out!

GAME: It was discovered that Emerl could learn techniques merely by watching
      others fight. Upon hearing these words, that spark became a flame...

KNUCKLES: The harder he trains, the stronger he gets? {Gwah!} Here's a warrior
          after my own heart! I must help him reach his full potential! He's
          with Sonic?! If Sonic trains him, he'll never grow strong! They're
          probably at "Tails' Lab." I must find them! {Ha!}

GAME: Yet elsewhere, another man yearns to "help," to achieve explosive
      results...

KNUCKLES: {Ha.} Huh? Since when did he start talking intelligently?

TAILS: It started when we gave him a "Chaos Emerald." Isn't it great?

EMERL: Hello! Hurry up and teach me already!

KNUCKLES: I can't tell if he's being polite, or if he's just rude...

TAILS: Emerl can only use words that he's heard. So, he talks like Sonic and
       me, but all mixed up.

EMERL: Don't worry about it! Will you please teach me?

KNUCKLES: {Ugh...} ... This won't work. Emerl! It's time for me to test your

KNUCKLES: All right, all right. I'll be more careful.

ROUGE: That robot you just fought probably isn't the robot you guys know as
       "Gamma."

KNUCKLES: What?!

ROUGE: Dr. Eggman has been experimenting with using "Chaos Emeralds" on robot
       cores. He used a bunch of old parts to create guinea pigs for his
       experiments. That robot's probably just has parts that you recognize.

KNUCKLES: {Ugh...} Even if it's someone else... Why is it after Emerl?

ROUGE: Well, Emerl took the "Chaos Emerald" that Dr. Eggman was using for his
       experiments. I think he wants revenge or something. I mean, Chaos
       Emeralds are very powerful. I sorta understand how he feels. Well then.
       you boys be careful out there, okay? *leaves*

       to pay for the entrance fee?

KNUCKLES: Rouge! What're you planning to do with Emerl?!

ROUGE: {Hmm!} How rude... Emerl came to me. He probably missed me. My, you've

KNUCKLES: {Ugh...} So much confidence...

STORE CLERK: W-who the heck are you?! Aaarrggh!

ROUGE: Is that... Phi?!

KNUCKLES: What?! It looks just like Emerl... {Bring it on!} All right, Emerl!
          Let's do this!

EMERL: There! There!

KNUCKLES: This thing fell out of Phi...

ROUGE: Phi is powered by "Chaos Emerald" shards. I've actually got one, too.
       Here, take it. *gives to Emerl*

EMERL: Thank you very much! Looks like you've got a use after all!

ROUGE: {Hmm!} Well, I never...! How exactly are you raising him, anyway?

KNUCKLES: S-sorry...

ROUGE: I've got no use for a measly shard. I'll collect on this debt some other
       day by taking your Master Emerald.

KNUCKLES: You wish!

ROUGE: {*giggle*} Hah! Are you forgetting that I'm the world's greatest thief?
       But perhaps you should first ask your little fox friend what he knows
       about the shards. I've already seen him absorb a Chaos Emerald...

KNUCKLES: Good point. We should go back and talk to Tails about this.

ROUGE: Come back to "Club Rouge" any time, boys! {*giggle*} *heart floats up*

EMERL: Heck yeah!

TAILS: Knuckles! What've you been teaching him?! Looks like he's gotten a lot
       stronger. (But it looks like he's not getting much smarter...)

KNUCKLES: Look, I was careful around him. Right Emerl?

EMERL: Heck yeah! Knuckles doesn't mess around!

TAILS: Knuckles!!

KNUCKELS: -(!)- H-hey, that remains me!

TAILS: What...

KNUCKLES: We found this!

TAILS: {Okay!} That's a "Chaos Emerald!

KNUCKLES: Well, a shard of one.

TAILS: let me see it. If you could get 2 more shards of the same color, you
       could probably form a whole Emerald.

KNUCKLES: {Ha.} 2 more, huh? That bat lady said that the fake Emerls all had
          shards.

TAILS: -(!)- That's right! The fake Emerls are all powered by Emerald shards!

KNUCKLES: Yeah, Eggman tried to copy Emerl's technology.

TAILS: Hmm... And knowing him, he's probably going to come and try to take
       Emerl back!

KNUCKLES: {Bring it on!} All right, Emerl! Time to train! Come with me to the

GAME: Got "2" "Emerald shards."

AMY: Emerl, you gain new abilities when you take "Chaos Emeralds," right?

EMERL: Yep. Lately, I have been able to tell if there are Chaos Emeralds within
       my surroundings!

AMY: {Ye-ah!} I wonder if you've got a sensor of some sort. {Ahh!} Well, if I
     collect enough "Chaos Emeralds" to make you a full grown robot, maybe
     Sonic will finally accept me as his wife! OK, Emerl, darling! No, no. No
     more calling you "darling." You're now a grown boy! Let's have you use
     your sensor to search for Emeralds, shall we?

EMERL: Amy, teach me some attacks, will ya?

AMY: {Ye-ah!} Will ya?

EMERL: *trembles* Oh, I mean, "please"...

EMERL: Amy's going to teach me attack techniques!

CREAM: Attack? Are you going to fight? I'm against fighting!

AMY: Aaa... Cream... It's not really fighting... He's here to work out with me,
     doing boxercise...

CREAM: {Ohh!!} -(!)- What? That again? *trembles* I, I just remembered that I

       boxercising to gain more strength so she can protect you next time. But
       when we found out that boxercise also helped her lose weight, she' been
       working out every day. I guess she pushed herself too hard. Cheese and I
       are also beat, since she had us working out with her.

AMY: How much did I lose today?

EMERL: Let's see... ... ... ... You burned 1000 calories today, so if you keep
       going at this rate, then you will lose 2 pounds after three days! And
       make sure you drink at least a gallon of water each day, and keep the
       total amount of calories you take a maximum of 700 calories per day.

CREAM: Um... Emerl? That's not playing... that's fighting. I don't like it when
       people get hurt, or when they're sad.

EMERL: -(?)- Sad...?

CREAM: It's when your heart hurts.

EMERL: Heart... hurts...

        7th Chaos Emerald, and activate the Gizoid. But even if he did, that
        "Information" that I found after searching through my grandfather's

SHADOW: I must go. I must go to the Gizoid. To the Emerald.

ROUGE: Hey! You can leave as you please, but don't you dare pass out on me
       again! Who do you think dragged you here in the first place??

SHADOW: You...? ...

ROUGE: Th-that's right...! You aren't even going to thank me?! It figures! You

SHADOW: Thanks, Rouge... Thanks for saving me. I cannot allow myself to die
        just yet.

ROUGE: ..."Emerald Beach."

SHADOW: Huh?

ROUGE: You're looking for Emerl, right? He's always there. {Hmm!} I went ahead
       and told them about you, anyay.

SHADOW: ... {Huh.} Heh... "Ally."

SONIC: Shadow?!

SHADOW: Sonic the Hedgehog... Where is Emerl?!

SONIC: He's at Tails' place... {Ah-ha!} Tell me something... Why are you after
       him, anyway?

SHADOW: {Hah!} I'm not here to steal him. I'm here to welcome him, as a fellow
        weapon of war.

SONIC: Welcome him?

SHADOW: Haven't you noticed? His awakening as the legendary weapon of war
        "Gizoid" is close at hand.

SONIC: Awakening?

SHADOW: He already has 6 "Chaos Emeralds," right?

SONIC: Yeah...

SHADOW: {Humph!} And with my "Chaos Emerald," that makes 7. The Gizoid will be
        awakened when it has collected 7 "Chaos Emerald." Right now, its true
        power lies dormant. However, I can feel it. I can feel the power... A
        power greater than you can imagine.

SONIC: I've heard that he who collects 7 "Chaos Emerald" will be granted
       unlimited energy. So, are you trying to tell me that awakening Emerl is
       dangerous?

SHADOW: {Ugh.} Dangerous? Ha! He's a weapon. One created with enough power to
        destroy the world. Awakening him is sheer madness!

SONIC: {Ah-ha!} I don't think he has it in him. The Emerl I know would never
       destroy the world. What about you?! You say he's the ultimate weapon,
       but weren't you supposed to be the military's ultimate secret weapon?!
       Maybe you've forgotten, but I seem to recall you saving humanity at some
       point.

SHADOW: {Ugh.} ...That was for Maria.

SONIC: {Yeah!} Exactly! If you have a heart, you would never use your power for
       the forces of evil! There's no way you could! Weapons aren't supposed to
       have "hearts." But, both you and Emerl do! You guys... You aren't just
       weapons!

SHADOW: {Huh.} Hmph! No, you are wrong. We were created as weapons. If the
        people of this world ever want peace, they must destroy us.

SONIC: -(!)- Shadow?! And one more thing! Rouge said that there's a keyword
       that can free Emerl! If we could find out what it is, Emerl could become
       just a normal robot!

SHADOW: {Ha.} ha! Such hopeless dreams... Weapons have no need for a
        conscience. Freedom? What use is a weapon that does not follow orders?!
        I have a different kind of "Link" with Gizoid.  Like me, he's a weapon!
        No doubt about it! He's a weapon to be used by his "Master"!

SONIC: Shadow... {Ah-ha!} All right, all right! Just take Emerl, already! If
       you're not going to listen to me, then do whatever you want!

SHADOW: ...Yeah. {Ha.} Then you don't care if I exterminate Emerl?

SONIC: {Yeah!} I'd like to see you try!

SHADOW: You don't think I could?

SONIC: You have a heart. Emerl has a heart. I don't think either of you has it
       in you to kill! Maybe you guys should just play games together or
       something?

SHADOW: ...

EMERL: There is a "Chaos Emerald" here...

SONIC: Emerl? What're you doing here?!

SHADOW: {Ha.} He probably felt my "Chaos Emerald's" power. I can feel it
        resonating with him.

EMERL: You. You have a "Chaos Emerald." Give me... the Emerald. Power... Give
       me power!! *trembles*

SONIC: Emerl!

EMERL: ... -(?)- What's wrong, Sonic? Why are you looking at me like that?

SHADOW: Heh... Perhaps now you believe me. He was created as a weapon. You
        were lucky in that you met him before he awakened. But, you cannot deny
        the Gizoid's true identity!

EMERL: -(?)- Sonic?

SONIC: {Yeah!} Go with Shadow, Emerl! I want you to find out who you truly are!

EMERL: How?

SONIC: How else? Get Eggman to tell you!

EMERL: That chubby old guy? That sounds like fun! I'll be right back, then!

SONIC: Okay! And try to find out what that guy is up to! See if you can find
       out more about that "Final Something-or-Other" that Knuckles was
       talking about! You never can tell what that old man is planning!

SHADOW: {Ha.} Hmm. I, too, have things that I wish to speak to Dr. Eggman
        about. Let's go, Emerl. So begin sour path to ruin. *leaves*

EMERL: -(!)- Oh, and tell Mom that she has to go jogging and do at least 200
       sit-ups! And she has to eat salad with no dressing! *leaves*

SHADOW: {Ha.} The doctor's Mother Computer... I never imagined that I'd be here
        again... Tell me... What am I? What is the Gizoid? We were created as
        weapons, so why is it that we have hearts? Why do we have souls?! What
        the heck are we?!

ROUGE: Professor Gerald...

SHADOW: -(!)- Rouge?!

ROUGE: You are his ultimate creation. The ultimate life form. And during the
       output experiment of a "Chaos Emerald," he discovered it, and
       reactivated the ancient battle weapon, "Gizoid." Yes, Emerl.

SHADOW: Where did you learn that?!

ROUGE: I looked it up on the doctor's computer. I found one of Professor
       Gerald's old research files.

SHADOW: Why did Gerald give me a soul?!

ROUGE: He was not interested in researching weapons. He was researching a way
       to bring happiness and hope to all people. But, he was forced by the
       government and by the military to use his research for war. That's why
       he gave you and Gizoid a "soul." A soul identical to his beloved
       granddaughter, Maria.

SHADOW: Maria...

ROUGE: His hope was that no matter how crazed and obsessed with destruction
       mankind might became, the weapons themselves would never fight. Shadow,
       you are afraid of your own power. It troubles you. But, you've never
       used your power recklessly. You've never used it selfishly. Gerald's
       wishes have come true.

SHADOW: ...

ROUGE: You, too, Emerl.

EMERL: Me, too?

ROUGE: You were created as a weapon, yet you feel sympathy for living beings.
       However, Gerald did not create you and he was unable to completely
       erase the destructive powers within you. That part of you still exists.
       So, he programmed you with a special code. And if the keywords of that
       code were to be activated, Gerald's program would be complete. You'd
       become just like Shadow...

SHADOW: ...What're the keywords?

ROUGE: Bring hope to humanity.

SHADOW: "Bring hope to humanity," huh? Kinda touching. How do we input the
        code?

ROUGE: Now, about that... ...

SHADOW: Well?

ROUGE: You have to do it when he awakens.

SHADOW: So, basically when he absorbs this Chaos Emerald...

ROUGE: It would appear so.

SHADOW: Heh... Looks like I've got no other choice.

ROUGE: -(!)- Shadow! That's your...!

SHADOW: It's all right. I... I will always be with Maria.

ROUGE: Shadow...

SHADOW: Emerl! Take it! This is the last "Chaos Emerald"!

* - The Emerald floats down to Emerl.

GAME: "Skill Points" have increased by "10"!!

* - A rapid flash of light fills the Shelter, and then everything goes pitch
    black. Emerl was switched personalities with Gizoid.

GIZOID: ... ... "Show me your power. Or I shall not obey. I represent all
        things, and shall become Gizoid, the conquerer of all."

ROUGE: Well! Now that's a big difference!

SHADOW: Gizoid, ancient weapon of legend. I, as your new master, command you:
        "Bring hope to humanity"!

GIZOID: ...

* - The light flashes again, and the background returns. Emerl takes over his
    body again.

EMERL: Hey, now! Don't go and get all serious on me like that, Shadow!

SHADOW: {Ha.} Hmph. Look who's talking. You remind me a little too much of a
        certain spikey, smug little...

EMERL: Watch your mouth!

SHADOW: You're free now. Eggman no longer will no longer have any control over
        you.

EMERL: Thanks, Shadow! And you too, Rouge!

ROUGE: Oh... I appreciate that, but if you really want to thank me, give me
       some jewelry!

SHADOW: There's on last thing I'd like to ask of you...

EMERL: What is it this time?

SHADOW: Let us battle, one last time, to see who truly is the strongest! ...
        My body wasn't healed completely before, but now I'm ready! I am the
        ultimate life form, Shadow the hedgehog. I will crush anyone who stands
        in my way!

EMERL: You sure about that? I don't want you whining about how you didn't have
       your "Chaos Emerald" and stuff!

SHADOW: I no longer need it. I have Maria in my heart.

SONIC: I figured Shadow wouldn't be able to give you enough of a challenge by
       himself, so I came!

SHADOW: {Ha.} Yep, you sound exactly alike.

SONIC: {Ah-ha!} Whaddya say, Emerl? You wanna take us both on at once? It'll

EMERL: ...Thank you! Shadow! Sonic! I'm so glad to have met you... and everyone
       else too! I don't know what my creator was thinking when he made me, but
       I'm glad that he did because I got to meet all of you! When I first met
       you all, I was like a little baby robot who couldn't do anything! Heh
       heh... I couldn't even talk! I was weak, but you all protected me, and
       played with me. I'm sure there were times when I was a burden, or I was
       in the way, but in my time with you, I never felt "in danger" or
       "worried" as Gerald programmed me to. All I ever felt was "fun" and
       "excitement." And "happiness," too...

SHADOW: {Ha.} Hmph! There's no need for a weapon to have feelings. ...This is
        ridiculous! I am leaving! *leaves*

SONIC: {Ah-ha!} Hey! Shadow! Maybe you should try learning a thing or two from
       Emerl and be more honest with yourself! ...Heh! Not that I'd expect
       anything different out of you, though!! But hey, Emerl... I'm not your
       guardian anymore, so if there's one thing I want to leave you with, it's
       this: {Yeah!} I want you to live your life to the fullest!

EMERL: Thanks! You, too!

SONIC: {Ah-ha!} Haha! Look who's all grown up now! One more thing, you need to
       work on your punches! They just look lame! Who showed you how to punch,
       anyway? Look, punches should be more like this...

$#  Game prologue  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

GAME: Emerl, who has come to realize that he has the same soul as Shadow does,
      has finally obtained 7 "Chaos Emerald"... However, Dr. Eggman has not
      given up on his plans for world domination yet...

EGGMAN: Um, The Phis were all destroyed. Chaos and Gamma are useless, too. All
        the "Chaos Emeralds" I had have been taken by Sonic and his disgusting
        friends... The Gizoid has been equipped with 7 "Chaos Emeralds." Now
        that he has been awakened, combined with the training that Sonic and
        his pals put him through, he should be extremely powerful. Most people
        would give up here, I suppose... But, not I. For am I a genius
        scientist, Eggman! If my grandfather's journal is correct... Heh heh
        heh... Haaah hah hah hah!!! This time you'll learn, Sonic! {Mwahaha!}

* - Sonic and Emerl come nearby.

SONIC: {Hey!} So, I said you are still far from being perfect!

EGGMAN: {Mwahahaha!} Hah hah hah hah hah!!! Well, well, well... How are you
        doing, my dirty little spiked rat, and my useless weapon?

SONIC: {Ah-ha!} Eggman! Did you come all the way here just to mess with Emerl
       again? You know, being over persistent won't win you any popularity
       contests!

EGGMAN: {Mwahahaha!} Hah hah hah!!! Enough with the small talk! I have no use
        for this pile of junk anyway! I have completed the perfect weapon! I
        have installed the "Final Egg Blaster" on the ultimate planet
        destroying battleship... "the Death Egg"!!! Haaah hah hah hah!
        Stupendous! It's wonderful, I tell you! It is my greatest creation
        ever! {Prepare to die!} With this, I will finally accomplish my goal
        of world domination! I can see it now! The world will bow before me!
        You can do naught but wait, cowering in fear! You poor weaklings! You
        shall learn to fear me! So long, my loud mouthed spikey rat friend! The
        next time we meet, I shall be the king of the world! Gaaah hah hah
        hah!!! {Mwahahaha!} *disappears*

SONIC: Hmph... The old guy sure seems excited! Well, it looks like that "Final
       Something-or-Other" that Knuckles was telling me about is finally
       finished. I guess we're not the only ones who've got a score to settle
       here.

TAILS: Sonic! Emerl! Have you seen it?! A giant battleship has appeared in
       "Holy Summit"!

SONIC: Hey, Tails! Yeah, we heard. I swear, that old guy just doesn't know
       when to give up! He couldn't get his hands on Emerl, so he goes and
       whips up another one of his weird inventions, and now he's shouting
       something about taking over the world!

EMERL: Well, he was the one that woke me up in the first place. I've got a few
       things to settle with him!

SONIC: You really have grown up, Emerl! Looks like we've gotta hike to "Holy
       Summit"! Emerl! Tails!

EMERL: All right!

TAILS: But, something's not right. Why would he be so out and out honest about
       his plans? Even the government keeps some things a secret... It feels
       too deliberate... Like he's trying to lure us into following him. I've
       got a bad feeling about this. Anyway, I'll go fetch a warp transporter
       so we can reach the battleship, so go to "Holy Summit" and I'll meet
       you there!

#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

KNUCKLES: {Ha.} You came, as expected...

SONIC: Knuckles... What on earth is this...?

KNUCKLES: When that battleship appeared, the "Estuary" instantly froze over,
          and "Chaos" appeared. He's just sitting there, guarding the "Death
          Egg." Chaos is the guardian god of the Chao. He only shows himself
          in times of great crisis. Looks like we're in deep trouble this time!

SONIC: Haha! Things are finally getting exciting! Hmm... So that's the "Death
       Egg," huh? I can see why the old guy was so excited... That thing's
       huge!

TAILS: Sonic!

SONIC: Tails!

TAILS: I've brought the transporter! But... It takes a while to charge up, and
       it only has one charge left.

SONIC: {Ah-ha!} Really... Well, Emerl! You should be the one to go, shouldn't
       you?

EMERL: You bet!

SONIC: {Yeah!} Why don't you go pay the old man a visit, and "thank" him!

EMERL: Yeah!

SONIC: Don't leave until you're ready.

EMERL: All right!

SONIC: We'll be waiting at our usual spots if you want to practice some
       techniques beforehand.

EMERL: Thank you!

TAILS: Emerl... Are you ready? Then... I'll turn the transporter... {Yah!} On!!

               you on! Amy, Cream, Shadow, and Rouge should be here soon, too!

EMERL: Hey! Doctor! Long time no see!!!

EGGMAN: Gizoid... Looks like you've changed... From your new looks, I can tell
        you're not a war machine any longer.

EMERL: Yeah, that's right! My friends helped me!

EGGMAN: That is very good. Very good indeed! {Mwahahaha!} Hoo, ho, ho, ho!!

EMERL: You can laugh all you want. I'm here to defeat you and bring this to an
       end!

EGGMAN: Let's see just how powerful you really are! It's time to test whether
        or not the legends of the "Gizoid's" strength are true!

EMERL: Hmph... You're not very cool, Eggman! See you later! Try not to do
       anything bad anymore, okay? If you're smart enough to build battleships
       like this, I'm sure you can find other things to do! ...But, I wanted
       to thank you for waking me  up. Thanks to you, I've learned the true

    the FEB.

SONIC: Come on, don't cry! Emerl is right here!

* - A Chaos Emerald fragment floats down to Sonic.

CREAM: ... Yes! As part of the "Emerald shards"...

GAME: "Prof. Gerald's Journal [number]" ... [entry]


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Journal 1  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

I have uncovered a most interesting specimen from the warehouse. I believe it
to be some sort of puppet or robot made by an ancient people. At first, I
didn't think anything of it, but when I was experimenting on "Chaos Emeralds,"
it began to move. This suggests the possibility that even the ancient
civilizations could harness the power of the "Chaos Emeralds." When I was
researching various papers related to the "Chaos Emeralds" and this robot, I
discovered that there was a possibility that this robot was something
incredible. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but this robot may be the
cause of the destruction of the Fourth Great Civilization. I'm not sure I
believe it just yet, though.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Journal 2  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

I am no longer able to ignore the possibility that this robot did in fact
destroy the Fourth Great Civilization. I have discovered a stone tablet that
explains as much. According to the tablet, "When the figure falls from the
heavens, and the Stone of the Gods is joined, all that exists will become one
again." Though it is difficult to believe, this robot has been watching my
movements, and mimicking all that I do. I was amazed by my scans of this being.
Surprisingly, reams and reams of data scrolled and caused my most powerful
computer to crash. More intriguing was that the data was all about melee combat
and weapons of that age. Eventually, if this being is ever restored to its
former state, it will put all that data to use, and recreate all the weaponry
and combat abilities that it once had... And that's not all. If my guesses are
correct, it will also have the ability to absorb modern weaponry as well. What
have I done? I have uncovered a horrible weapon...


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Journal 3  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

I now understand why this being was named "Gizoid". In the ancient tongue, it
means "everything." According to the stone tablet, if the Gizoid establishes a
"Link" with someone, the Gizoid will swear loyalty to that person. Perhaps it
still lacks "Chaos Emerald" energy, but it has been saying the word "Link" to
me in broken tones. It went on to explain: "Show me your true strength, and I
shall obey. I am all things, and all shall belong to me." So, as it suggested,
I brought before it my collection of model guns, and fired them all. Then,
suddenly, it said, "I shall follow your every command, and never leave your
side." And since then, it refuses to listen to anyone but me. While it still
is a fearsome weapon of destruction, while it remains under my control, at
least it won't be used for evil. However, if someone with evil intention ever
forms a "Link" with the Gizoid... I don't even want to think about what will
happen. I must research how one can re-establish a "Link" with the Gizoid...


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Journal 4  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

The upper echelon is going crazy. Perhaps, they aim to freeze Project "Shadow".
Soon, the ultimate life form, "Shadow" will be completed... The application to
my granddaughter is also imminent. I cannot just let them stop my study at this
point. Because I am the only one who can save my granddaughter's life.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Journal 5  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

The higher ups are threatening to shut down this research facility. I had no
choice but to hand them the Gizoid to buy more time for my research. I tried to
be careful and commanded it to never absorb any dangerous technologies.
However, I have heard that other researchers have been making the Gizoid absorb
weapons. Apparently, the way to cause the Gizoid to form a new "Link" is to
show it power that surpasses that of its former master. While this poses
immense danger, I cannot risk losing Maria.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Journal 6  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

My worst fears have come true. The Gizoid has absorbed enough weaponry and
technology that it has started to go out of control. The resulting rampage
resulted in the destruction of most of the "Ark." ... I have deciphered the
rest of the stone tablet. It says, "When the Gizoid had learned all that it
could, it became a god of wrath, and all was destroyed." The researchers
somehow managed to subdue the Gizoid and sealed it away. Luckily, it only had
one "Chaos Emerald" installed. If it were to have all 7 Emeralds installed, it
might destroy the whole planet. The Gizoid is too much of a liability. I tried
destroying its core, but nothing I did worked. I understand too little of the
technology that built him. My best hope is to try and reprogram its AI into a
free-willed, emotions-based AI...


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Journal 7  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

I have heard there was an accident at the research facility. ... ... ...
Everything... Everything is gone. My own Maria's name was among the list of
casualties. My beloved granddaughter... They tell me her parting words were,
"Bring hope to humanity." I have decided that the keyword to activate the
Gizoid's free-willed emotions-based AI program will be those very words.
"Bring hope to humanity." My poor, poor Maria...


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Journal 8  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

A heritage of the past I dug out, "Gizoid"... And the ultimate life form I
created by my own hands, Shadow... I equipped both weapons with "heart." If all
powers are not what is to be obtained for oneself, but what is to be born from
hearts that yearn for someone, I believe all conflicts should cease to exist.
Please... If there is anyone listening to my prayers... Bring hope to humanity.
