- "All For One" Part One: Months ago, Mighty and Ray went on a quest to find Mighty’s sister. Now the Chaotix have grown worried for their missing friends, so they’re off to investigate! Will they pick up the trail in Mercia? Or will the Dark Egg Legion close our heroes’ investigation early?
All For One Part One: Picking Up the Trail!
The Chaotix—Vector, Espio and Charmy—have come to a stop in their journey to Mercia due to Dark Egg Legion goons. Vector forced them to tell them where their buddies (that being Mighty and Ray, who had left off on their journey to find Mighty's sister) are at, but Espio had made Vector stop asking questions and beat the goons, since they must protect Charmy. After defeating several of them, giant robots from the Dark Egg Legion (called G.O.O.N.s) had found the Chaotix.
Vector had calm Charmy down about how they faced bigger foes than this before, but suddenly, an arrow had struck one of the robots and it was destroyed. As a result, the Mercian Freedom Fighters- Bow Sparrow, Thorn the Lop, Alan Quail, Friar Buck and Munch Rat- came and helped out the Chaotix at their time of need.
After the battle, Bow introduces himself, and quickly Espio asks Bow where the present leader of the Mercian Freedom Fighters is- that being Rob'O the Hedge- but Bow had said that he is protecting his family from the danger of the Dark Egg Legion. In that case, Vector and Charmy ask where Mighty and Ray are at. Bow, looking at his team with a worried expression, says yes, but not in sometime.
And so, the Mercian Freedom Fighters and the Chaotix all go inside the Hideaway in Deerwood Forest. There, Bow told the story of how they found Mighty and Ray. Mighty and Ray where in the same scenario as what the Chaotix where in, only Mighty took care of the robots before the Mercian Freedom Fighters got there. Bow, knowing Mighty's past, had gave his respect and honor to him, but Mighty told him to "forget about the past." From there, Mighty and Ray had learned that Mighty's sister was roboticized five years prior thanks to Friar Buck's notes. Espio had then told the others about how he knew what happened after that. Vector, angered, yelled at Espio on how he didn't tell the others before. Espio then says that ninjas don't have magic to foretell things. With that information, Mighty, Ray, and the Mercian Freedom Fighters had planned to go inside Snottingham Castle to look for his sister, who could be inside there, by the next night....
The plan, however, foiled when the Dark Egg Legion attacked the forest. Mighty had told Bow that he'll stay and help fight the goons away from the forest. After defeating them, Bow told Mighty to go. Mighty, happy for this, thanked Bow and left with Ray. After this, Bow told the Chaotix that they are either captured at the fortress or successfully escaped. Vector, however, decided to sneak in there, too, just in case if they were captured. The Mercian Freedom Fighters also had a plan to go inside the fortress to rescue the villagers that were captured. With this, the Chaotix and the Mercian Freedom Fighters are successful at sneaking inside the fortress without notice.....
Meanwhile, inside the fortress, Lord Hood was tormenting a villager where the Deerwood Forest Hideaway is located at. Instead, one of the minions told Lord Hood that the Chaotix and Mercian Freedom Fighters are now inside the base. Lord Hood, telling the minion not to capture the heroes, waits for the Freedom Fighters to come and face the snake, face to face...
