Having trained for months, Sleek ventured out to challenge Tails to a fight, getting his attention by disturbing the peace with a megaphone. His aim was to defeat Tails, causing the people to lose faith in the fox and turn their adoration towards Doctor Robotnik. Sleek started well, easily beating Tails when a group of fleas distracted the fox. He then returned for round two, laughing at Tails talking to insects. Sleek's tough demeanour slipped after being punched in the face, so he activated his Power Gloves. Unfortunately for him, the ground below him had been weakened by the insects, causing him to fall into a crater.
