History

Film series

Sonic the Hedgehog

Due to an unfortunate event, Sonic accidently sent his bag of Rings to the top of the Transamerica Pyramid through a Ring.

Having convinced the Wachowskis to help him get his Rings back, Tom and Maddie snuck Sonic into the Transamerica Pyramid in a bag. Inside the tower, Tom used his authority as a sheriff to convince the staff of the tower to give him the keys to the top of the tower. Before Tom and Maddie could enter the elevator though, Sonic started to talk in the bag, which led to Tom having awkward conversations with bystanders.

Sonic, Tom and Maddie corned by Dr. Robotnik on top of the Transamerica Pyramid, from Sonic the Hedgehog (film).

Arriving on the roof, Sonic found his bag of Rings. After saying goodbye to Tom and Maddie, Sonic prepared to head to the Mushroom Planet with a Ring, only for Dr. Robotnik to show up at the tower in his Eggpod with his Badniks. To keep Tom and Maddie safe, Sonic pushed them off the building before starting to destroy Robotnik's Badniks at super speed. As Sonic headed down the building to save Tom and Maddie however, Robotnik fired a laser at him, causing Sonic to nearly lose consciousness. Before Tom and Maddie hit the ground though, Sonic used a Ring to send them to Green Hills. Meanwhile, Sonic hit the ground relatively unharmed, with his Rings spilling all over the area. As Robotnik then caught up to him, Sonic regathered his Rings and ran away, with Robotnik chasing after him.
