The Shattered World Crisis
- Note: From the readers point of view, this picks up from where the Shrine Isle's original timeline ended.
During the events of the Shattered World Crisis, Knuckles was on Shrine Isle and witnessed the devastation to the world's surface as the planet split apart. To his further surprise, Chaos emerged from the Master Emerald and plummeted towards the surface, and Tikal then addressed him. Tasked with finding Light Gaia and helping him restore the planet, Knuckles had Relic the Pika and her assistant Fixit the Robot to stay on Shrine Isle and watch the Master Emerald in his absence. Knuckles subsequently returned here with Light Gaia, nicknamed Chip, and conversed with Tikal regarding what to do next. However, Relic then arrived to inform him that the island had been invaded by an alien force. This threat would prove to be Eclipse the Darkling and his Dark Arms, and their presence soon brought Team Dark to Shrine Isle in search of Knuckles.
- The Shrine Isle is based on the small island in Sonic Adventure that is connected to Angel Island by a bridge, upon which the ruins of the Altar of the Emeralds are based.
