Tikal's Prayer Pre-SGW

Lara-Su using Tikal's Prayer, from Sonic Universe #8.

Tikal's Prayer[1][2] is a subject in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It was an ancient incantation originally used by Tikal to nullify the rampaging Chaos' power. It has since been adapted for use by other Chaos users, notably the Brotherhood of Guardians and Dr. Finitevus, in order to draw further power from the Master Emerald and for other purposes.


The prayer was used by Locke and Dr. Finitevus to keep the Master Emerald from being taken by A.D.A.M.[3] Locke later used Tikal's Prayer to nullify the effects of Dr. Finitevus' hex to liberate Knuckles from his control and end the threat of Enerjak, but at the cost of his own life.[4] Dr. Finitevus's version allows him to empower himself and others with corrupt Chaos energy.[2][5] During a battle, Knuckles uses this prayer to counter Dr. Finitevus' corrupted version of it.[5]

Lara-Su of Light Mobius was also taught it and used it to stop Tikhaos' rampage.[5] Her Dark Mobius counterpart Jani-Ca utilized it in combination with the Sword of Acorns to drain her father of his Chaos powers, becoming an incarnation of Enerjak.[6]
