Featured storiesEdit

The Original Freedom Fighters Part 1Edit

Hope Kintobor (Doctor Eggman's niece) is working on a school paper. While using the computer at the library (located in Knothole) she stumbles across the original five Freedom Fighters. After asking Sonic the Hedgehog about them, he decides to give her a history lesson.

When Robotnik invaded Mobotropolis, a retired colonel known as Tig Stripe took it upon himself to get everyone to safety. After hearing the news of King Acorn's disappearance, he moved everyone else to Knothole Village. He oversaw the construction of Knothole and was one of the very first Freedom Fighters, along with Spot Long, Sir Peckers, Trey Scales and MP Bull Bones.

The Freedom Fighters soon became five thorns in Robotnik's side. For years, they raided Robotnik's factories and did everything in their power to aggravate the ex-warlord; even saving a seven-year-old Sonic's life. They became heroes and icons for Freedom Fighters everywhere.

After the story, Hope asks, "So what happened to them?" Sonic answers, "They were betrayed by one of their own".

I Wanna Be A Freedom Fighter!Edit

Amy Rose appears in her young form and original clothes arguing against Sally with why she wants to be a Freedom Fighter. However, she is obviously shot down with the usual responses of being a: too young, and b: inexperienced). However, she just thinks that those are just excuses for Princess Sally to keep Sonic for herself.

However, this was just a flashback Sally has given to the audience in one of her speeches, where she is addressing a formal and official entry of the Freedom Fighters to the now older looking Amy Rose with her new clothes. Amy Rose, visibly embarrassed by her past, still appreciates Sally's thanks, as well as her reasoning.

Sally still continues her speech with a motivation of why the efforts given by the Freedom Fighters still aren't enough, and how they must continue to seek more help, and hurt the evil empire with greater impact and efficiency. Finally, she awards Amy with a Medal of Honor for her help with the defense against Robotnik's offensive, as well as keep out radioactive fallout.

The two shake hands, and the crowd cheers for Amy Rose.

Mobius: 25 Years Later: Moment of TruthEdit

After getting a night's sleep and absorbing the recent events, Knuckles awakens to find that everyone else is already outside having breakfast. On his way down he is intercepted by Lara-Su, who begins pressing him once again about starting her Guardian training. Knuckles once again rebuffs her efforts, refusing to agree to her request. Meanwhile, Rotor and Cobar discuss their deteriorating situation, and Rotor proposes the radical idea of sending someone back in time. Back at Knuckles', Sonic discusses the pressure he is feeling over his station as king with Sally, citing her as the true authority over the kingdom. He and Knuckles then go to a video conference with the two scientists, where the two propose the idea of going back in time using the Tachyon Chamber, a device created by Dr. Robotnik.
