- Game: It was discovered that Emerl needed "Chaos Emeralds." Hearing this, a spark of interest was triggered...
- Knuckles: It needs "Chaos Emeralds"?! There's no way I'm gonna sit this one out!
- Game: It was discovered that Emerl could learn techniques merely by watching others fight. Upon hearing these words, that spark became a flame...
- Knuckles: The harder he trains, the stronger he gets? Here's a warrior after my own heart! I must help him reach his full potential! He's with Sonic?! If Sonic trains him, he'll never grow strong! They're probably at "Tails' Lab." I must find them!
- Game: Yet elsewhere, another man yearns to "help," to achieve explosive results...
- Eggman: Hah hah hah!! Go!! Go, my painful "Phi" robots! Bring the Gizoid back to me!
- Phi #1: Roger!
- Phi #2: Roger!
- Phi #3: Roger!

- Tails: Oh, Knuckles! Welcome!
- Emerl: Welcome, Knuckles. Thank you for coming.
- Knuckles: Huh? Since when did he start talking intelligently?
- Tails: It started when we gave him a "Chaos Emerald." Isn't it great?
- Emerl: Hello! Hurry up and teach me already!
- Knuckles: I can't tell if he's being polite, or if he's just rude...
- Tails: Emerl can only use words that he's heard. So, he talks like Sonic and me, but all mixed up.
- Emerl: Don't worry about it! Will you please teach me?
- Knuckles: ... This won't work. Emerl! It's time for me to test your strength! Get "10 KOs" off of me to prove your worth! You better have not gotten weaker since we last met!

- Knuckles: Hey!! That's my line!
[Emerl and Knuckles leave.]

Amy's Room - After selecting the area
- Amy: Hey! I found Emerl!
- Knuckles: Amy...
- Amy: Huh? Where's Sonic?
- Knuckles: Who knows?
- Amy: Darn! I thought he was coming here with Emerl to propose to me!
- Knuckles: R-right. Well, I'm in a rush, so I gotta get going.
- Emerl: In your dreams! Now if you'll excuse me...
[Knuckles and Emerl leave.]

Crossing - After the (1st) fight with Chaos Gamma
- Chaos Gamma: ... Initiating systems check... Initiating repair systems... ...All systems nominal. Initiating battle mode.

- Rouge: It is...
- Knuckles: Rouge?!
- Emerl: Hello! Where the heck have you been?
- Rouge: Looks like your little baby has got quite a mouth on him.
- Knuckles: Hey, it's not me! Blame Sonic!
- Rouge: Quick to blame others, as usual, I see.
- Emerl: Hey, it's not me! Blame Sonic!
- Knuckles: All right, all right. I'll be more careful.
- Rouge: That robot you just fought probably isn't the robot you guys know as "Gamma."
- Knuckles: What?!
- Rouge: Dr. Eggman has been experimenting with using "Chaos Emeralds" on robot cores. He used a bunch of old parts to create guinea pigs for his experiments. That robot's probably just has parts that you recognize.
- Knuckles: Even if it's someone else... Why is it after Emerl?
- Rouge: Well, Emerl took the "Chaos Emerald" that Dr. Eggman was using for his experiments. I think he wants revenge or something. I mean, Chaos Emeralds are very powerful. I sorta understand how he feels. Well then. You boys be careful out there, okay? *leaves*
- Knuckles: That might explain why it seemed like that robot wasn't trying... Huh? Where'd she go? And what was she doing here, anyway? Hey Emerl! You better be careful! I don't think they've given up on trying to take you back yet!
- Emerl: Gotcha! You better watch yourself, too!
- Knuckles: R-right...

- Knuckles: What is this place...? "Club Rouge"??? She owns this place??? Man, something smells fishy here... Well, I still better check it out!
- Store Clerk: This is a battle club for members only. I must first test your skill.
- Knuckles: Silence! Where is she? Hmm...
[Inside the club, Emerl and Rouge are preparing to fight.]

- Emerl: I am invincible!
- Knuckles: Emerl!
- Emerl: Hey, Knuckles! I've been lookin' all over for ya!
- Knuckles: I'VE been looking for YOU! Let's go!
- Rouge: I suppose you think echidnas are special and you don't have to pay for the entrance fee?
- Knuckles: Rouge! What're you planning to do with Emerl?!
- Rouge: How rude... Emerl came to me. He probably missed me. My, you've grown strong... Gives me goose bumps thinking about it.
- Knuckles: So much confidence...
[A light flashes.]
- Store Clerk: W-who the heck are you?! Aaarrggh!
- Phi: Located! Located!
- Rouge: Is that... Phi?!
- Knuckles: What?! It looks just like Emerl... All right, Emerl! Let's do this!
- Emerl: All right! Let's blow this taco stand!
- Rouge: Those two are sounding more and more alike...
Club "Rouge" - After the fight with the two Phi
- Knuckles: Hah! Nothing's better than the real thing!
[A Chaos Emerald shard floats down to Emerl.]
- Emerl: Shard! Shard!
- Knuckles: Shard?
- Emerl: There! There!
[Another shard floats down to Knuckles.]
- Knuckles: This thing fell out of Phi...
- Rouge: Phi is powered by "Chaos Emerald" shards. I've actually got one, too. Here, take it. *gives to Emerl*
- Emerl: Thank you very much! Looks like you've got a use after all!
- Rouge: Well, I never...! How exactly are you raising him, anyway?
- Knuckles: S-sorry...
- Rouge: I've got no use for a measly shard. I'll collect on this debt some other day by taking your Master Emerald.
- Knuckles: You wish!
- Rouge: Hah! Are you forgetting that I'm the world's greatest thief? But perhaps you should first ask your little fox friend what he knows about the shards. I've already seen him absorb a Chaos Emerald...
- Knuckles: Good point. We should go back and talk to Tails about this.
- Rouge: Come back to "Club Rouge" any time, boys! *heart floats up*
- Knuckles: No thanks!

- Emerl: Heck yeah!
- Tails: Knuckles! What've you been teaching him?! Looks like he's gotten a lot stronger. (But it looks like he's not getting much smarter...)

- Emerl: Heck yeah! Knuckles doesn't mess around!
- Tails: Knuckles!!
- Knuckles: H-hey, that remains me!
- Tails: What...
- Knuckles: We found this!
- Tails: That's a "Chaos Emerald!
- Knuckles: Well, a shard of one.
- Tails: let me see it. If you could get 2 more shards of the same color, you could probably form a whole Emerald.
- Knuckles: 2 more, huh? That bat lady said that the fake Emerls all had shards.
- Tails: That's right! The fake Emerls are all powered by Emerald shards!
- Knuckles: Yeah, Eggman tried to copy Emerl's technology.
- Tails: Hmm... And knowing him, he's probably going to come and try to take Emerl back!
- Knuckles: All right, Emerl! Time to train! Come with me to the beach! I'll make you strong enough to beat Eggman! *leaves*
- Emerl: Hey! Whaddya think you're doing! Don't go running in front of me! *leaves*
- Tails: Nope, he's not getting smarter at all...

- Knuckles: Don't come any closer, Emerl!
- Eggman: Hah hah hah hah! You fell right into my trap, Knuckles!
- Knuckles: You tricked me!
- Eggman: Hah hah hah! I deserve an award for my acting! And this ultra-powerful "spiky rodent trap" I developed to catch Sonic works perfectly! It works even better than I expected! It shoots electricity through your body so you can't move! So, no matter how strong you are, if you can't move, there's no way for you to escape! Ha ha ha ha!
- Knuckles: What're you up to, Eggman?!
- Eggman: What else? I shall take Gizoid back and fulfill my plans to take over the world! Once I have Gizoid acquire my ultimate weapon, "Final Egg Blaster,"... I'll be able to use it as my final weapon of destruction!
- Knuckles: What the heck is the "Final Egg Blaster"?!
- Eggman: Oops! It's still supposed to be a secret! Well then! I must return to complete my secret "Final Egg Blaster," so you'll have to excuse me! I leave the rest to you, "Chaos Gamma"!!
- Chaos Gamma: If I win, you'll give me a "Chaos Emerald," right? You promise?
- Eggman: Of course! I promise! But, be sure to bring Gizoid with you! That Gizoid is not fully awakened. And since that rodent is incapacitated, there's nothing he can do to stop me! *leaves*

- Emerl: Knuckles, you okay?
- Knuckles: Great job, partner!
- Emerl: I'm invincible!
- Knuckles: You said it! Let's go! *electrocuted* ... I can't move... He said that I'm being immobilized by electricity... Hey, Emerl! Do you see a "switch" over there? If you can flip the switch, I should be able to move.
- Emerl: Come on, Knuckles! Is that all you got?!
- Knuckles: What?! I'll show you...! My true strength!!!!!
[He starts trying to fight the electricity, and repeatedly gets shocked.]
- Knuckles: Grraaaaah!!!! Aaaaaaaarrrrrggh!
- Emerl: Oh, I wonder if this is the right "switch." *presses*
- Knuckles: Grrrrrruh??
[The voltage dies down, and Knuckles - not realizing that happened - continues straining against it; which after it lets go, throws him into a wall.]
- Knuckles: *stands up* Ouch! Hey... You did that on purpose!
- Emerl: Let's go! Stop wasting time! *leaves*
- Knuckles: Hey, wait up! If you keep talking like that, Sonic will smack you! *chases after Emerl*

- Emerl: ...
- Tails: So, Emerl, how do you feel?
- Emerl: Really good! Thanks, Tails!
- Tails: You've grown a little bit more! But, if you're going to thank anyone, thank Knuckles!
- Emerl: Oh yeah! Thanks, partner!
- Tails: Partner? Just what happened out there, anyway?
[As Knuckles whispers to Emerl, the background goes dark.]
- Knuckles: (Hey, Emerl! Let's just keep the fact that Eggman tricked me our little secret, ok?)
- Emerl: (Sure thing, parter!)
[The backdrop returns to normal.]
- Emerl: It's a secret, but my partner goy tricked by Eggman again! A secret! Right, partner?!
- Knuckles: Why you...!!!!
- Sonic: *comes into view* Hey, guys! Looks like you're all having fun!
- Emerl: Hey! Sonic! Hey, Sonic! Guess what! It's a secret, but Knuckles got fooled by Eggman again!
- Knuckles: Emerl!!!!
