Sonic attacking King Arthur.

In the beginning of the story, Merlina is being chased in the game by King Arthur. Arthur traps Merlina with a whole bunch of demons he summoned. Merlina, knowing she is trapped for good, summons Sonic from his world to save her. Sonic, knowing how to defeat enemies, defeats the demons and counters King Arthur. He goes up to him, but Merlina pulls him back and transports Sonic and herself away.

Later, at Misty Lake, Merlina and Sonic find a sword in a stone. Sonic pulls it up and it turns out to be Caliburn, a talking sword. Suddenly, King Arthur appears and Sonic goes up to him for a duel.
