Home to the Freedom Fighters


Knothole Village, not long after Eggman's takeover of Mobotropolis, from Sonic Universe #72.

When Dr. Eggman invaded Mobotropolis, banishing King Acorn and Walter Naugus into the Special Zone, the kids of the city, including Sally, Antoine and a severely injured Bunnie were rescued by Rosie and Chuck and taken here.[1][2][3] Rotor came later, wanting to come in Mobotropolis, the "greatest city in the world", but only finding the city invaded by Dr. Eggman's forces.[4] The village became the children's main base of operation when, inspired by Sonic's heroism, Sally formed the Freedom Fighters.[1]

The Shattered World Crisis

Note: From the readers point of view, this picks up from where Knothole Village's original timeline ended.

Before the world shattered, Uncle Chuck was staying in the village studying the seismic tremors that had been occurring across the planet, as well as the mysterious purple gas leaking from the cracks in the earth, with the aid of his assistant Ben Muttski, and with Antoine on guard. Sonic and Tails, their memories of the old timeline intact, came to the village in their mission to gather the Freedom Fighters. After admiring the beauty of their formerly fallen childhood home, and a happy reunion, Antoine regained his memories of the old timeline.[5]
