He and Sonic first met when Ali-Baba recommended to seek him out for his advice on how to deal with the Ifrit. At that point, Sinbad had been engaged in a battle with pirates when he was kidnapped by the Rukh, most likely under orders from Erazor Djinn. Sonic and Shahra then send off to find him.
The duo soon find him held in a cage aboard one of the Rukh, where he understandably requests that he be freed before he shares his advice with them. Sonic soon frees him and Sinbad provides the somewhat obvious suggestion of defeating the fire genie by dousing him with water. He proves he is still just as stubborn as Knuckles when he started to fight with Sonic when he insulted his suggestion. After their argument is broken up by Ali-Baba, Sinbad elaborates that he meant recovering the Water World Ring he had stolen from the pirates and using that to produce the water needed to extinguish the Ifrit.
Sinbad doesn't play a significant part in the main story after this, but he is seen with Sonic and Ali-Baba during the ending credits, implying he aided Sonic in another adventure afterward.
Sinbad is very aggressive like Knuckles. He only cares for himself and saving himself. He relies on everyone else to do his work for him.
- "I am Sinbad of the Seven Seas, Adventurer of Adventurers, who the heck are you?" - Sinbad introducing himself to Sonic.
- "Now, about the fire genie... why not try splashing some water on him?" - Sinbad suggesting an idea to defeat the Ifrit Golem.
- "Okay! Any day now, thanks!" - Sinbad "wishing luck" for Sonic and Shahra to save him.
- "Life's a game of give and take, see? You free me, and I'll help you out later." - Sinbad urging Sonic to free him.
- Compared to his Sonic-World counterpart, Sinbad is more intelligent, in terms of solutions to defeat an enemy.
- Sinbad's face cannot be seen during gameplay unless you adjust the camera angles.
- How Sinbad is able to use the Water Blue Ring to control the weather is uncertain, as it has been shown that the World Rings themselves are intangible to the inhabitants of the Arabian Nights.
