I Never Promised You a Chao Garden Part Two
At the Master Emerald's altar at Angel Island, Knuckles is greeted by Tikal, as the Master Emerald has brought her back to the time of great danger. Tikal has brought an army of Chao, as well as Chaos, to help defeat the overwhelming demonic Chao. Back in Station Square, the Chao are rampaging as Scarlet Garcia reports on the situation with Sonic, Tails, Amy, Lindsey Thorndyke, Chris, Chuck, Cream and Cheese.
Tails gives Sonic a Ring which supercharges him. Sonic, Tails and Amy get ready to stop the Chao, but Tails tells them that they are still Chao and that they shouldn't hurt them. Sonic rescues a window cleaner, while Tails rescues a baby from their midst and Amy uses her hammer to stop water overflowing from a fire hydrant. Thinking Amy is powerless, the Chao steal her hammer, but she surprisingly pulls out another one.
Doctor Eggman shows Decoe, Bocoe and Bokkun the next stage of his plan as he launches his new robot, the Egg-Gantor. Dr. Eggman plans to use the new robot to stomp the city into submission, after which he will be crowned their emperor.
Sonic, Tails and Amy are surrounded by Chao, cornered at a hardware store. They successfully dodge their attacks until the demonic Chao return with chainsaws, although Sonic, Tails and Amy quickly disarmed them of their weapons. Chuck tries to find the source of the noise that Cheese is hearing, so that he can jam the frequency. Meanwhile, Chaos, Tikal, Knuckles and the Chao arrive in the city to stop the rampage. Chaos attempts to calm them down, but the demonic Chao are unable to speak the same language.
Dr. Eggman arrives in his new robot, demanding Station Square to surrender and make him the new ruler. Tikal sends a telepathic message to the army of Chao to bring Chaos the seven Chaos Emeralds, so that he can take down Dr. Eggman. Thankfully, Chaos uses the positive side of the Emeralds rather than the negative. Tikal and Knuckles are fighting the same way, as Knuckles was taught by the tribe elders and he read the scrolls the elders left behind. Amy whacks a hammer at the oncoming Chao, wanting to join in the fight.
Chuck managed to build a device that turns the demonic Chao into normal Chao. Chuck succeeds in using it on Lindsey's Chao, and then Tails hands the device to Sonic, who runs around the town restoring the rest of the Chao. Chaos knocks the Egg-Gantor's head off and Dr. Eggman retreats to his base. With Chaos powering down from the Chaos Emeralds, Tikal tells Sonic and his friends that they returned because the demonic Chao were being harmed. Tikal asks Cheese if she would like to return with them this time, but Cheese decides to stay with her friends. Cream asks if Cheese can visit the Chao there, and Tikal answers that he is always welcome to go back with them.
- The name of the story may be a reference to the novel "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden".
- While disarming the demonic Chao of their chainsaws, Sonic shows off by juggling five chainsaws, saying "Hey kids! Don't try this at home!" which presumably breaks the fourth wall.
- Strangely, when the Chao gave Chaos the Chaos Emeralds, they were all colored green instead of their regular colors.
