Mobius 25 Years Later - Tempus Aeternus
Meanwhile, underneath the catacombs of Mobius Castle, Sonic, Tails, Lara-Su and Rotor Walrus are being kept prisoner. They jokingly discuss what's going on, when Knuckles enters and reveals that he was working for Shadow the Hedgehog as part of a sting operation. He sets the others free, and they each got to work. Lara takes Rotor to a hospital, Tails deactivates the security system and Knuckles and Sonic head off to the throne room. Knuckles escorts Queen Sally to safety and leaves Sonic to fight Shadow.
Sonic tries his best, but the unaged Shadow proves to be too great a foe for him and defeats Sonic easily. After knocking Sonic to the ground, Lara-Su intervenes by knocking Shadow back and the two engage in mortal combat. Lara proves to be a match for Shadow and after a hard fought battle, Lara imprisons Shadow with Chaos Control.
Knuckles enters and takes the daughter he is so proud of home, while Sonic and Sally remember the times they were in love and get back together.
Sonic awakes in his room to find that he has overslept for his special birthday celebration. He quickly gets ready, only to trip over a rock while running away from some reporters.
"The next morning", exactly the same events take place, except he runs into a wagon while trying to avoid reporters.
"The next, nextest morning", Sonic wakes up and the same events take place and he realizes he's having a reoccurring dream, so he decides to stay in bed and miss the ceremony, but the reporters have other plans.
They try to get into his house by climbing on top of the roof, but crash through and fall on Sonic.
"The next, nextest, nextiest morning", Sonic actually wakes up for real this time and goes to the ceremony three hours early.
