Not-So-Fantastic Journey


Sonic and friends fight off Dr. Eggman's robot army in a city. When it appears that they have won, Eggman releases a swarm of robot bees to sting Sonic and inject him with nanobots to convert him into a robot at the cellular level. Sonic simply stares at the approaching swarm until Knuckles pushes him out of the way and gets stung instead. The others take Knuckles to Tails' lab, where Tails suggests they use his Super Shrink Ray to enter his body and destroy the nanobots. Meanwhile, Eggman laments that his bees missed their target, but takes comfort in knowing Sonic will suffer anyway as his friend disappears.

Tails shrinks Sonic to microscopic size, picks him up with tweezers, and drops him onto a metal spot on Knuckles' arm so he can step inside. Using a digital map, he locates Knuckles' nerves and runs along them towards his brain, destroying nanobots along the way. Eggman takes notice back at his hideout and orders the nanobots to attack him, pleased that he might get his initial target after all.

Sonic reaches Knuckles' neck and rides a gust of air from his lungs into his head. Inside the brain, he fights and destroys the nanobot queen, causing the rest to self-destruct. After exiting through his nose and returning to normal size, Sonic thanks Knuckles for taking the hit for him; Knuckles assures that he knows Sonic would do the same, but complains that he can still feel his footsteps on his spine.



  • The title of this story is a callback to the title of the 1966 American submarine science fiction adventure film, Fantastic Voyage.
