The Lake of Rings, also referred to as the Power Ring Pool, is a location that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog television series. It is a lake nearby Knothole Village that produces Power Rings.
The Lake of Rings is a seemingly normal body of water, more of a pond than a lake however. On the bottom of the lake is a machine with a Power Rock which produces Power Rings. The lake could initially only produce a Power Ring every twenty-fourth hours, but this would later be increased to every twelfth hour.
When Sally was kidnapped by Dr. Robotnik, Sonic the Hedgehog impatiently waited at the lake with Rotor and Tails until a Power Ring popped out of it, which Tails grabbed for Sonic. Antoine Depardieu later went to the Lake of Rings and got a Power Ring himself to use as bait for Robotnik and capture him to impress Sally. When Sally showed the lake to Griff however, Griff would steal the lake's Power Rock for Lower Mobius not long after. The Power Rock was returned to the lake though after Sonic came to an agreement with Griff.
Sonic soon after went to the Lake of Rings with Tails and Rotor to grab a Power Ring prior to heading out on a mission to Robotropolis. He later returned to the lake for a Power Ring to temporarily restore the roboticized Uncle Chuck's free will with. When Sonic then lost his memory due to the Memory Scrambler, Tails, Chuck, and Sally went to the Lake of Rings and got a Power Ring to restore Sonic's memories with.
