At Castle D'Coolette, Sonic and Antoine are brawling against Cortez. Cortez uses his unorthodox-looking sword to subdue Antoine, slamming him down to the bottom room level. After receiving this attack, Antoine reminisces about earlier and how this battle began. Earlier that day, Sonic and Antoine had arrived at the location, only to find anything relating to Antoine (such as grass sculptures and a painting) have been vandalized. Enraged, Antoine brags into a room decorated with Eggman Empire propaganda. Behind them, Cortez brings attention to the two heroes, likely the culprit behind this vandalism. Both Sonic and Antoine charge at Cortez, which is where Antoine's recollection ends.
Antoine gets up and finds a sword in a case, with a letter that he reads, inspiring him to use the sword (along with a makeshift "cape" that was wrapped around him from a banner that ripped as he fell on the bottom floor). Antoine uses the sword's newfound power and ultimately subdues Cortez. Antoine spares Cortez, forcing him to leave instead of finishing him off, an offer that Cortez takes. Sonic and Antoine then leave the premises, with Antoine taking the sword and keeping his new look as they go.
