This is the transcript of the Sonic X episode, "A Metarex Melée".

Narrator: Last time on Sonic X, Eggman discovered two more Chaos Emeralds hidden aboard a high-security Metarex fortress. When the doctor suggested that Sonic and the gang team up with him to see who can snatch the Emeralds first, Sonic jumps at the chance. Soon, with the help of Rouge and Shadow, Chris breaks into the Metarex complex, and after a bit of digital detective work, shuts down the security system. But when Sonic and the others burst in for an Emerald espionage, they're greeted by a mob of Metarex with one thing on their minds: total destruction! Find out what happens next on this week's Sonic X!

[The opening theme plays]

[Sonic and Oak stand ready to fight.]
Sonic: Think you can beat me?
Dark Oak: Make no mistake, my friend. I do not think I can beat you. I know I will. Metarex, prepare for battle!
[A rank of Metarex Troopers step in front of Oak.]
Dark Oak: As you can see, you are dangerously outnumbered, Sonic. And I warn you, for every one of us that falls in battle, there will be hundreds more that will take his place!
Cosmo: Please don't hurt Sonic, I beg you!
[Sonic places a protective hand in front of Cosmo.]
Cosmo: We'll do anything you want, Metarex, sir. We'll give back the Chaos Emeralds and the Planet Egg, but please don't hurt my friend!
Dark Oak: Get him!
[Dozens of Metarex Troopers fly into the air and land on Sonic without warning.]
Amy and Cosmo: Sonic!
[Suddenly Sonic frenziedly throws the Trooper off him and into the wall. Dark Oak watches, impressed. Sonic turns to Oak.]
Sonic: So you wanna play games, huh?
[Sonic executes a spin and launches himself at Dark Oak, who laughs, and does not move. Suddenly, Dark Oak vanishes when Sonic reaches him. The hedgehog bounces off the wall and lands near Amy and Cosmo.]
Amy: He vanished!
Sonic: It's a hologram.
[The Metarex Troopers are anything but. A few of them have survived the attack.]
Cosmo: Be careful, Sonic.
[Dark Oak laughs. Sonic, Amy, and Cosmo find themselves completely surrounded on all sides by Metarex Troopers - and they begin their approach.]

[Scene Change: The Metarex station - The shaft]

[Knuckles is standing on top of the Eggmobile.]
Knuckles: I oughta knock that egghead of yours clear off!
Dr. Eggman: Now now, Knuckles, let's just keep calm. We all know violence never solves anything.
Decoe: Stay still, why don't you!
Bocoe: Any unnecessary movements will send us plummeting!
[Bocoe looks over the edge.]
Bocoe: And from the looks of things, it would be most inconvenient!
[Suddenly the fortress shakes, throwing Knuckles off balance.]
Knuckles: What was that?
Tails: [Over communicator] Blue Typhoon here. Knuckles, do you read me?
Knuckles: [On communicator] Tails, what's going on?

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

Tails: There's a nasty battalion of ships heading straight for us! I got a bad feeling those Metarex aren't too happy about us crashing their fortress!
Cream: Tails, I'm afraid they're coming from behind too! They're all around us! What are we gonna do? There's no way we can beat that many, not without Sonic!

[Scene Change: The Metarex station - With Chris' Team.]

[Chris, Rouge, and Shadow are looking out a viewport. There is a battleship and a large group of smaller Metarex ships outside.]
Chris: Uh-oh. We're in trouble.
Rouge: You said it, kid.
[Shadow picks up his walkie-talkie.]
Dr. Eggman: [Over radio] Listen up, Shadow! In the interest of self-preservation, I'm calling off this clambake!
Shadow: [On radio] I don't understand. I thought I was to retrieve the Chaos Emeralds.
Dr. Eggman: [Over radio] Oh, blast the Emeralds! These Metarex monstrosities are about to make a meal out of us!
[They become aware of a voice booming through space.]
Red Pine: [Off-screen] Attention intruders. Make no effort to escape.

[Scene Change: Red Pine's Battleship]

Red Pine: I am Red Pine. I and my three commanders serve the all-powerful Dark Oak.

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

[Red Pine can be seen on the giant viewscreen.]
Tails: Great. There's three more of 'em?

[Scene Change: The Metarex station - The shaft]

[Pine's voice can be heard even from deep within the space station.]
Red Pine: In your foolish effort to undermine our mission, you've played directly into our leader's hands. [Laughs]

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg - Cockpit]

[Bokkun watches on the viewscreen.]
Red Pine: In fact, he wishes to express his gratitude for bringing him the Chaos Emeralds.

[Scene Change: The Metarex station - With Chris' Team.]

Red Pine: Thanks to you all, we won't have to blindly scour the galaxy. We don't know how to thank you. Perhaps we'll just destroy you.
Rouge: Just try it, you overgrown junk-yard!
Dr. Eggman: [Over radio] What are you waiting for, Shadow? Move it or lose it!!

[Scene Change: The Metarex base - The shaft]

Dr. Eggman: [On radio] A genius like me can't afford to dawdle with danger!
[He presses two buttons to contact Bokkun.]

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg - Cockpit]

Dr. Eggman: [Over radio] Start ignition and begin egg ascension on the double!
[Bokkun snaps out of his scared trance.]
Bokkun: Yes sir! Right away!

[Scene Change: The Metarex base - The shaft]

Knuckles: Wait just a minute!
Dr. Eggman: You wait! I'm not about to let those metallic mutants maim me! See ya!
[Eggman flies up the shaft, and Knuckles leaps down to the X-Tornado.]
Knuckles: Hey! Come back!
[But Eggman does not respond.]
Knuckles': Now what? I don't even know how to fly this stupid thing!

[Scene Change: The Metarex station - The viewport]

Shadow: I have to get back to the doctor.
[He walks away.]
Rouge: No way! I'm not leaving here empty-handed!
Chris: Shadow!
[He runs after Shadow. However, his communicator activates. It's Amy.]
Amy: [Over communicator] Chris, do you read me?
Chris: [On communicator] Amy, what's wrong?
Amy: [Over communicator] Please help!

[Scene Change: The Metarex station - With Sonic]

[Sonic pants as he faces the horde of Metarex Troopers.]

[Scene Change: The Metarex station - With Chris]

Chris: [On Communicator] The Metarex!
[Shadow overhears.]

[Scene Change: The Metarex station - With Sonic]

[Sonic blasts his way through the ranks of Metarex Troopers surrounding him. He pants from the exertion while several more troopers rise up, having survived the attack. This gives Amy an opening to return to her ship.]
Amy: Don't you worry, Sonic! I've got your back! Eat this, Meta-creep!
[Her ship fires lasers at the Metarex Troopers, but four of them leap onto her ship.]
Amy: Hey! What do you creepos think you're doing! Get off of my ship!
[Cosmo looks up from the cyan Chaos Emerald in its glass jar.]
Cosmo: Oh no! Amy!
[Cosmo watches Sonic continue to fight the Metarex Troopers.]
Cosmo: Maybe the code I deciphered..
[She presses a few buttons, and the cases around the two Chaos Emeralds open. But as she reaches for the cyan Chaos Emerald, an alarm sounds, a sphere closes around the crystallized Planet Egg, and it is ejected from the station. But Cosmo has both Emeralds in her hands.]

[Scene Change: The Metarex station - The shaft]

[Knuckles is in the X-Tornado.]
Knuckles: Where's the start button? Maybe...
[He tries a button.]
Knuckles: That's not it. [Rubs head] Ah, where's that geek Tails when you need him?
[He looks up to see something fall past him.]

[Scene Change: Red Pine's Battleship]

Metarex Trooper: Attention all Metarex. The Planet Egg has been ejected.
Red Pine: Without the Planet Egg, this fortress is of no use. We must destroy the stronghold and all who dwell within it. Metarex, aim! Fire!

[Scene Change: Space]

[Every single Metarex ship blast at the Metarex station.]

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

Tails: Laser shield! Hurry, Cream!
Cream: Laser shield activated!

[Scene Change: Space]

[The shields are projected. Several lasers bounce off them.]

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

Cream: How long do you think we can hold 'em back?
Tails: I don't know! Even with the shield up, the Typhoon can't withstand this kind of attack for long!

[Scene Change: The Metarex station]

[Shadow, Chris, and Rouge run down a corridor.]
Chris: Shadow, wait! Why can't we find a way out of here together?
Rouge: He's only interested in doing what the boss man tells him!
Shadow: You don't know what you're talking about.
Chris: Eggman doesn't care about you. He only wants to use you to get what he wants. Don't you see that?
Shadow: You're wrong.
[Rouge cuts in front of Shadow, forcing him to stop.]
Rouge: Come on now, why else do you think he keeps you hanging around?
Shadow: He wants to help me.
Rouge: You think he's going to help you get your memory back, don't you. Have you ever stopped to think old Egghead might just be using that promise to get you to do his dirty work?
Chris: Rouge is right. You can't trust him.
[Shadow sighs]
Chris: Please, I know you don't remember, but you helped us before, and I'm begging you to help us again.
[Shadow looks away.]
Chris: Shadow...
Shadow: Alright, I'll help you, but just this one time.
[He grabs Rouge's arm and fishes out the red Chaos Emerald.]
Rouge: Watch it, bub.
Shadow: That's right. I'm keepin' my eye on you.
Rouge: Talk about insulting!
Shadow: Chaos Control!
[Chris has to scramble to avoid being left behind as the Chaos Emerald teleports the three of them away.]

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg - Cockpit]

[Shadow, Rouge, and Chris appear in the room.]
Dr. Eggman: Well, certainly took you long enough.
[Due to his prior scramble, Chris is thrown to the ground.]
Dr. Eggman: Well, if it isn't Chris. Long time no see.
[Chris glares at Eggman.]
Dr. Eggman: Nice of you to drop in!
[He laughs heartily. Chris stands up.]
Dr. Eggman: I see Shadow decided to play nice and rescue you from those Metarex meanies. He really is an agreeable little fellow, isn't he? After all, a little squirt like you would've been no match for those guys.
Chris: I thought you said we were all on the same team. I should've known you'd run when the going got tough.
Dr. Eggman: [Smiles] Well... better safe then sorry, I say. We don't want to get hurt, do we, kid?
Chris: I'm not a kid, okay?!
[Shadow walks away after placing the red Chaos Emerald in a slot next to the purple one in Eggman's command chair.]
Dr. Eggman: Whatever you say, kid. Ah yes, another day, another conquest. Let's not waste any more time. It's been nice knowing ya, kid!
Chris: Quit talking down to me like I'm some kind of baby, will you? I happen to be eighteen years old, not that you can tell!
Dr. Eggman: But how? You're still only bite-sized.
Chris: Oh yeah? Well I'm tired of you and those Metarex doing everything you can to hurt my friends. So I'm taking matters into my own hands!
Dr. Eggman: Really.
[Chris' hand is in his pocket.]
Chris: Really!
[He pulls out a flash grenade and throws it down, then uses the distraction to take the two Chaos Emeralds and flee.]
Dr. Eggman: That little thief!
[Chris pockets the Emeralds, locates a spaceship, and climbs inside.]
Chris: Activate ignition.
[He flies off the Crimson Egg and sees all the Metarex Ships firing at the Metarex station.]
Chris: Here I come, Sonic!
[He flies the stolen ship through the tight enclosure of the Metarex Station, where Sonic, Amy, and Eggman had flown earlier.]

[Scene Change: The Metarex Station]

[Cosmo tries to escape with the two Chaos Emeralds. However, several Metarex Troopers blast just in front of her, causing her to trip and drop the Emeralds. Sonic turns back in horror.]
Sonic: Cosmo!
[One of the troopers uses the distraction to pin Sonic down.]
Cosmo: We're too outnumbered, Sonic!
[One of the Metarex Troopers picks them both up just as Amy flies her spaceship towards them, crashing through some troopers.]
Amy: Not so fast, freak!
[Suddenly a huge explosion throws everyone off balance. Amy gets out of her ship.]
Amy: What was that... crash?
[Sonic stands up.]
Sonic: They're tryin' to destroy this place!
[Cosmo looks up and sees the lasers striking the station.]
Cosmo: Why would they want to destroy their own fortress?
Amy: Especially with so many Metarex still inside. It doesn't make sense.
[The Metarex Trooper still has a grasp on the Chaos Emeralds.]
Metarex Trooper: For the great and noble mission.
[Its eyes glow red.]
Metarex Trooper: All will be sacrificed!

[Scene Change: The Metarex Station - With Chris]

[Chris is flying down one of the corridors inside the station. He catches sight of Shadow skating next to him. He summons energy in his hand - the same energy that sent him rocketing across the room aboard Space Station ARK. He also has flashbacks of Maria, and Chris crying over the limiter. Shadow throws a pair of Chaos Spears that strike the engine of the ship, causing Chris to have a crash landing. He crawls out, dazed. Shadow approaches him. Chris gets up and starts walking, Shadow following. Suddenly Rouge scoops him up and carries him down through the shaft out of Shadow's range.]
Chris: Shadow... He's trying to hurt me!
Rouge: If you let me have those Emeralds, kid, I'll get ya outta here.
Chris: You know I can't do that.
Rouge: Well, your loss. Later!
[She lets go of Chris, and he falls down the shaft.]
Knuckles: [Off-screen] Chris!
[Chris' fall is broken when he is caught by Knuckles. Knuckles is holding on by the seat belt.]
Chris: Knuckles...

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

[As the Metarex lasers strike the Typhoon's shield, Tails watches a few reading greatly diminish.]
Cream: I'm scared, Tails! The shields aren't working! What if they break through?
Tails: Don't worry, Cream. I just fired anti-laser torpedoes from cannons two and three. That'll hold 'em awhile.

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg - Cockpit]

Decoe: Doctor, we are in a jam! Big time!
Bocoe: Without those Emeralds to protect us, we'll be laser lunch!
Bokkun: That's right! It's that Chris kid's fault!
Dr. Eggman: What is this? I'm getting a reading; there's a gravity field down there.
[A shot of the shaft is shown.]
Dr. Eggman: My, my. Those Metarex are just full of surprises, eh?

[Scene Change: The Metarex Station]

[Knuckles flies Chris up and out of the shaft. But Chris is able to catch a glance of Shadow. As the X-Tornado comes to rest at the surface above, Chris opens the hatch.]
Chris: Sonic, catch!
[He throws the red and purple Chaos Emeralds to Sonic, who is just finishing off a Metarex Trooper. Shadow also sees them. The red and purple Chaos Emeralds glow. The blue, green, and white Chaos Emeralds on the ground glow. The cyan and yellow Emerald in the possession of the Metarex Trooper glow. All seven Emeralds are together. Then there is an extremely bright light, bright enough to be seen outside the Metarex station. It is witnessed by Tails, Eggman, and even Red Pine.]

[Scene Change: Red Pine's Battleship]

Red Pine: What is happening?
[When the glow dies down, two glowing individuals can be seen.]
Red Pine: They are gaining power from the Emeralds!

[Scene Change: The Metarex Station]

[Super Sonic and Super Shadow face each other. Sonic throws a wave of Chaos energy behind him, destroying the last of the Metarex Troopers, before he and Shadow fly outside.]

[Scene Change: Space]

[The two super hedgehogs stare each other down.]
Super Shadow: Well, Sonic. I see you and I have a lot more in common that I thought we did.
[Sonic stares down Shadow]
Super Shadow: Are you going to give me those Emeralds? Or am I gonna take them from you by force?
Super Sonic: You haven't got any use for those Emeralds and you know it. We all know you're just collecting 'em for Dr. Eggman. He's really got you fooled, doesn't he, pal?
[Super Shadow gets enraged and pushes Sonic all the way through to the other side of the Metarex station.]

[Scene Change: The Metarex Station]

Cosmo: What are they doing, Amy? Why are they glowing like that?
[Chris watches from the cockpit of the stolen spaceship.]
Chris: It's happening. Chaos Control.

[Scene Change: Space]

[The Metarex Fighters open fire on the two superpowered hedgehogs as they fight. Shadow throws Chaos energy at Sonic, but Sonic dodges and it hits the side of the Metarex station. Sonic emerges out of another part of the station and blasts at Shadow.]

[Scene Change: The Metarex Station - The shaft]

[Massive cracks run down the side of the station.]

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg - Cockpit]

Dr. Eggman: What now?!

[Scene Change: Space]

[Sonic and Shadow emerge from the Metarex station. Suddenly the entire station begins to warp and twist as a massive black hole starts to appear. Super Sonic and Super Shadow watch as bits and pieces of metal fly into the gravitational field. They try to break free of the black hole, which starts to consume some of the Metarex Fighters.]

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

Tails: I don't think I've ever experienced gravity this strong!
[Amy and Cosmo enter the bridge.]
Amy: Do something, Tails! We're getting sucked in there!

[Scene Change: Space]

[All the Metarex Fighters are now being drawn into the gravitational field and destroyed. It is even pulling on Red Pine's ship.]

[Scene Change: Red Pine's Battleship]

Metarex Trooper: The gravitational pull is going to destroy the ship. We must go faster! Accelerate to full power!
Red Pine: Do it! Quickly! Noooo!
[The massive battleship is drawn into the gravitational field and explodes, killing Metarex General Red Pine and his crew.]

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg - Cockpit]

Dr. Eggman: Don't just sit there, you good-for-nothing gadget brains! Do something!
Bokkun: We're doomed! We're all doomed!

[Scene Change: Space]

[Even Super Sonic and Super Shadow are hanging on for dear life. The Crimson Egg pulls up alongside them.]
Sonic: That's Eggman!
[As the Crimson Egg descends into the gravitational field, Shadow dives after it. He uses all his power to initiate Chaos Control and teleport it to safety. Shadow's Super state wears off. Meanwhile, all seven Chaos Emeralds fall into the gravitational field. Super Sonic is still hanging on.]
Chris: [Off-screen] Sonic!
[He looks up to see the Typhoon flying above him. Chunks of metal rain down around him.]
Super Sonic: Thought you'd never get here!
[He clings to the metal chunk and resigns to his fate.]

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Engine room]

[Knuckles types on a keypad.]
Knuckles: Come through, Master Emerald! We're begging you! Lend us your mighty power!
[The Master Emerald glows intensely bright.]

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

Chris: Our ending power's increasing! Bring it up to full speed, Tails!
Tails: You got it, Chris! Full speed ahead!
[The Blue Typhoon uses all its power to fly away.]
Dark Oak: [Voice-over] It appears I have greatly underestimated the power of these tiny warriors. [Laughs]
[His battleship starts to appear on the screen.]

[Scene Change]

[He watches the proceedings.]
Dark Oak: Their resourcefulness is to be commended. However, this was but a test. Soon, we shall see just how clever they can be. [Laughs]
