Twice Told Tails!
In his dreams, Tails stumbles into a cave on a stormy night and is scared by a pair of red glowing eyes.
Tails wakes up screaming and also wakes up Sonic. Sonic calms him down by saying that Tails was just having a bad dream. Jules and Bernie wake up to see if everything is okay, but Sonic tells them it happened again. Uncle Chuck joins them when they all realize it's the same nightmare as every day for the last week. Sonic asks if it is the same one with the cave and the storm, and Tails agrees with him also including the creepy glowing eyes. Bernie feels that they should see Dr. Quack tomorrow to check out the problem. Tails gets scared of the thought of needles. The Robians leave them for some rest. As they are going back to bed, Sonic tells him that no matter what happens, he's got his back. Tails sees the dream like its something he's seen before, but Sonic quickly falls back to sleep.
Ten minutes later, Sonic wakes up and find Tails missing from his bed. Sonic runs out and sees Tails taking off in "the Tornado". Sonic follows Tails and finds him at the entrance of the cave in his dream. Tails notices Sonic and tells him its the cave from his dream. Tails wants to go inside, but is scared and Sonic says he's with Tails all the way. Sonic and Tails are shocked to find Turbo Tails in a shield of energy. Tails shocked that it is him, Mammoth Mogul reveals himself from the shadows. Sonic wonders what his plan is, because last time they saw him, he was trapped inside the Floating Island's Master Emerald (STH: 56).
Mammoth Mogul tells them he was liberated (STH: 79) and with the energy of multiple Power Rings, he manage to stay before dispersing. He then saw Athair with Tails (STH: 94) and intercepted the transportation by creating a duplicate in Tails' place. The Real Tails as the "Chosen One" has been his captive for months, supplying him with energy to bring him back to his ultimate form.
Sonic attacks Mogul for doing what he did, as Tails stares at himself, realizing he's the fake. Mogul uses his Chaos Emerald in his chest and blasts Sonic. The fake Tails doesn't want to accept he's a fake and since his memories and feelings are real to him, he flies and stuns Mogul. Sonic then takes to beating up Mogul by spinning around and punching him. With Mogul losing his concentration, the shield around Turbo Tails disappears. Mogul disappears with Turbo Tails no longer his prisoners.
Sonic congratulates Tails, but Tails cries that he's just a phoney. Sonic doesn't believe that and says that he'll always be his best bud. The fake Tails thanks Sonic and disappears as the real Tails wakes up. Sonic is happy that Tails is back.
