In Sonic's story, Monica gives Sonic his tenth Town Mission. At some point while practicing for one of Solsaliente's performances, an acrobat had an accident (presumably a physical injury) and was rendered unable to appear in the show. The loss of this acrobat meant that the show was in danger of being cancelled, unless a replacement capable of performing the Acrobatic Rings was found. Due to Sonic's incredible speed and athleticism, Monica considers him an ideal replacement. Before she can put him in Solsaliente's show, she lets Sonic try out the Acrobatic Rings to test his abilities.
