Featured stories

Waves of Change Part Four: Divine Waters

As Rotor and Sonic are at the mercy of the Dark Guardian, Sonic shows further signs of transformation as he and Rotor are on the verge of perishing from lack of air. Back at the Eusebes Shrine, Pearly informs Razor and Amy Rose that the Air Charms taken by their two friends are almost certainly depleted, but the pair and Razor's Chao friend Crusher have their hands full with Dark Gaia Creatures. Back in the shrine, Coral bemoans the failure of the rites, and blames it on herself as she pleads with the spirits of Sonic's World for aid. Her cry is then answered by Tikal, who then informs her that she has not failed as Aquarius' cocoon beings to glow. At the same time, Sonic and Rotor are saved from death by the appearance of an unexpected former enemy turned ally: Chaos. The elemental then engages the Dark Guardian in battle, and after witnessing his efforts in battling the creature with the water surrounding him, Rotor realizes that Chaos is responsible for the oceans remaining in place despite the planet breaking up.

An astonished Captain Striker, recognizing Chaos, is stunned by his arrival, and informed by Sonic that Coral is undoubtedly responsible for his appearance.

Consequences

Two Egg Bosses, older sister Clove and younger (and more obviously cybernetically enhanced) sister Cassia, discover the Crystal Cave excavation site had been recently infiltrated, the entrance damaged and ajar and littered with destroyed badniks. Clove looks into the security logs to find the system previously compromised and then, surprisingly, reactivated. Seeing the video footage of the intrustion for themselves, they contact Eggman for their report.

Hearing that the Chaos Emerald was taken by the Freedom Fighters (specifically Sally Acorn, Tails, and Antoine D'Coolette), Eggman orders the sisters to abandon the site and await reassignment. While ordering Orbot and Cubot to load up the files for his "Resource Acquisition Project, he laments that Sally was able to steal said files (while he was returning from the other side of the now-shattered planet) and use them against him, which explains how they were able to find the site and the emerald so easily.

He begins to pinpoint the next promising energy reading and contacts an Egg Boss named "Thunderbolt". Thunderbolt, who was preparing to call Eggman first, informs him that her faction is currently recovering another emerald at her location, and can have it delivered to him in a matter of hours. Eggman instead tells her to hold onto it temporarily, warning her not to keep it for herself. He then tells her that the emerald would make the perfect bait to deal with those who are trying to be "just a little too clever" against him.

On the other side of the communication, Thunderbolt bears a wide smile, looking forward to Eggman's plan.

Just then, Chaos emerges from a small puddle of water that Sonic shook out of his ear, and heads back to the ocean, much to the shock of Sonic and Amy.

Trivia

  • According to Aleah Baker, Consequences went through a lot of back and forth and conceptualization. Supposedly, it was originally planned that the Egg Bosses would interact with the Freedom Fighters, but it got removed in the process. Clove and Cassia the Pronghorns were also introduced to bring more world-building upon suggestion from Paul Kaminski. Additionally, Aleah Baker held back on their background as she did not know where it would lead at that point.[1]
  • Dr. Eggman is seen to have a tab open called "Mustachio Affianado" and it showcases designs of different moustaches, namely those of Dr. Light, Dr. Wily, Mario and Luigi.
