Sonic the Hedgehog - "Robofox"
Sonic the Hedgehog searches the Green Hill Zone for his friend Tails, having just returned from the Marble Zone. However, a young rabbit reveals that Tails was captured, along with everyone else in the Zone, by Dr Robotnik. Sonic puts on a new pair of Power-Grip Trainers (and some sunglasses), then zooms off. He uses his Super-Sonic Spin Attack to defeat some Buzz Bombers and Choppers, releasing the captive Mobians inside.
Elsewhere, Robotnik (whose Egg Mobile is equipped with the checkerboard-pattern wrecking ball from the first Zone of Sonic 1) is waiting with his new ally: Tails, who is half-covered in a robotic exo-skeleton. When Sonic arrives, Tails attacks him with his own Super-Sonic Spin and accuses Sonic of playing the big hero while he had to stay in the Green Hill Zone (even though he used to love that Zone). When Sonic is down, Robotnik moves to crush him with his wrecking ball, promising that he will do to the world what he has already done to Tails. At the last minute, Tails remembers that Sonic is his pal and attacks Robotnik, shattering the exo-skeleton and forcing Robotnik to flee.
Tails admits feeling guilty for attacking Sonic, while Sonic says that there's no Badnik yet made that can beat him. His new trainers are ruined, unable to keep up with him. Sonic and Tails go home.
