Blue Coast Zone
- Sonic: Hey, Tails! How's it going? I heard you had something important to tell me.
- Tails: That's right! I discovered that a bunch of Chao have vanished. I think Eggman might be behind this... And he's on this island.
- Sonic: Then let's go and find him! I wonder why he'd want Chao, though... Hey, look! It's Knuckles and Rouge!
- Sonic: Well look who it is... Knuckles and Rouge! You two on a date or something?
- Knuckles: Knock it off, Sonic! By the way... Have you seen Eggman?
- Sonic: What's it to you?
- Knuckles: Um... Well, the Master Emerald seems to be missing again... and...
- Sonic: That figures... what else is new, Knuckles? I'll need to talk to Eggman first... so I'll see you later!
- Knuckles: WHAT!? Hey, come back here! Try to beat me to Eggman, will he?
- Knuckles: Hey, Sonic... How about a little one-on-one, instead of this silly race?
- Sonic: Knuckles, don't tell me you're tired already?!
- Knuckles: What'd you say?! I'll show you how tired I am!
- Tails: Hey, Rouge! What are you doing here?
- Rouge: Whaddya think I'm doing? Lookng for treasure of course. Say, you wouldn't know where the Doctor is, would you?
- Tails: He's here on this island and... Sonic and I were just about to...
- Rouge: Thanks Tails... I'll be sure to tell the Doctor that you're looking for him. See ya!
- Tails: Hey, wait! You can't do that! If he knows we're looking for him, we'll never find him. Hey... Wait up!
- Dr. Eggman Nega: Ho ho ho! Well, if it isn't my favorite blue hedgehog! I heard you were looking for me?
- Sonic: That's right, Eggman! What have you done with the Chao?
- Dr. Eggman Nega: Why, nothing my dear hedgehog.
- Sonic: Don't play dumb with me! I know you kidnapped them, and I want to know what you're up to!
- Dr. Eggman Nega: How rude, to assume that I know anything about these "Missing Chao!" Sonic... Why not discuss this wih my new creation?
- Knuckles: Hey! We've got a bone to pick with you, too!
Sunset Forest Zone
- Sonic: Looks like we lost Eggman's trail, and we're stuck in the middle of this forest...
- Tails: Look Sonic! Eggman dropped something... It looks like a page from a book... It says... "The all powerful Ifrit..."
- Sonic: Ifrit? What's up with Eggman reading stuff like this? Come on, Tails! Let's get outta here!
- Tails: I'm with you, Sonic ! I wonder if this has anything to do with the Chao...
- Espio: Hmm... I wonder if those two have any idea what they've just uncovered. I'd better report this. Looks like Silver's following Sonic, so I'd better watch Tails.
- Sonic: Huh? Someone's behind me.
- Silver: Move aside, Sonic!
- Sonic: Hey, Silver! Long time, no see. Guess you're looking for Eggman too, huh?
- Silver: I said move aside!
- Sonic: Ha... You never change, do you? Guess I'll have to find Eggman before you do!
- Sonic: Not too bad, Silver, but I don't have time for games right now,
- Silver: Neither do I, Sonic. Let's resolve this now!
- Tails: I have a strange feeling like someone's following me.
- Espio: Hmm... That little fox is pretty observant. Hey Tails. You look like you're searching for something. Is something wrong?
- Tails: What-what are you doing here, Espio? Sonic and I are following Eggman, trying to figure out what's up with the Chao disappearances.
- Espio: The Chao disappearances? Do... do you have any leads?
- Tails: Sorry Espio, I can't tell you anything... I've got to catch up to Sonic. See ya!
- Espio: Hey, wait! I still have more questions. I'd better follow him!
- Dr. Eggman Nega: My, you two certainly are persistent. And you've brought your friends, I see.
- Sonic: What's up Eggman? If you've got nothing to do with the missing Chao, then why run?
- Tails: You also dropped this earlier. What does it...
- Dr. Eggman Nega: What?! Where did you get that?!
- Silver: No more time for small talk. Now listen--
- Sonic: Chill, Silver...
- Dr. Eggman Nega: I'll take back that piece of paper, if you don't mind... and without further ado, I'd like to introduce you to MY friend!
Neon Palace Zone
- Sonic: Argh! Eggman made it to the city and gave us the slip!
- Tails: Look, Sonic! A few more pages must have fallen out of Eggman's book. It says, "The Ifrit held the power of destruction, and the power to blind one's soul..."
- Sonic: Huh? That sounds like an awful lot of power. Whatever it is, it can't be good. Shadow? What are you doing here?
- Shadow: Sorry, no time to talk... Come on, Metal Sonic.
- Sonic: Metal Sonic!?
- Metal Sonic: ...
- Sonic: I got a bad feeling about this, Tails! Whenever Metal Sonic's involved, it always means trouble!
- Tails: Yeah. I guess we better follow them.
- Sonic: Tails, I'll catch up with Shadow.
- Tails: Okay, Sonic!
- Sonic: I finally caught up to you, Shadow! What's going on?
- Shadow: I'm looking for Knuckles and Rouge. Now get out of my way.
- Sonic: Not so fast! What do you want with Knuckles and Rouge? And why are you with Metal Sonic?
- Shadow: I've got no time to explain it to you. Guess I'll just have to knock you out!
- Sonic: Yeah, right... Bring it one, Shadow!
- Sonic: Tails, see if you can get to Metal Sonic and find out what's going on.
- Tails: Okay!
- Sonic: So Eggman, what are you trying to hide?
- Dr. Eggman Nega: Nothing that concerns you, Sonic! Since you've got time on your hands, why not play with my new toy?
- Shadow: Hmph! A minor nuisance.
- Sonic: Bet we can destroy it before you can, Shadow.
Frontier Canyon Zone
- Sonic: If there's one thing Eggman's good at, it's running away! He's got to be somewhere here in the wasteland.
- Tails: Sonic! Eggman's been here all right. Look, it's another page from his book. "The Ifrit destroyed the entire..."
- Sonic: Sounds like this "Ifrit" definitely has something to do with what's been going on.
- Rouge: Hey, if it isn't Sonic and Tails. How're you two doing?
- Tails: Rouge... and Knuckles! What are you two doing here?
- Rouge: We're still looking for the Master Emerald, that someone carelessly left unguarded.
- Knuckles: What'd you say?
- Rouge: We have an Emerald Detector, but we need some Rings to keep it fuelled. Think you can help me?
- Sonic: No problem... Come on, Tails. Let's go and round up some Rings.
- Sonic: I'd better collect those Rings and fast.
- Espio: Hmm... Seems like Sonic hasn't spotted me. We need those Rings, too. It's going to take a while to catch up to him, but I'll get him.
- Espio: Sorry Sonic, but I need those Rings.
- Sonic: Espio! When did you...?
- Espio: I'll take those Rings!
- Sonic: What? Hey, give those back!
- Tails: Boy, collecting these Rings is a lot more work than I thought. I wonder how Sonic's doing?
- Silver: That can wait. I Gotta take Tails on!
- Sonic: Hey, where did those thieves go?!
- Dr. Eggman Nega: You're not talking about me, are you?
- Sonic: Eggman! So, this is where you have been hiding. Perfect timing! If you're not behind the Chao disappearance, then what are you up to?
- Dr. Eggman Nega: If I told you, I'd ruin the surprise. I'll tell you what, if you can defeat my creation here, I'll give you a clue.... Ho ho ho!
- Silver: Sonic, Tails... Step aside! We need to talk to him first.
- Sonic: We'll see about that. Come on, Tails, it's time for Round 2.
Mystic Mansion Zone
- Sonic: Okay, Eggman, you promised. What's this all about?
- Dr. Eggman Nega: Rrgh. Fine then! I'll tell you... A monster known as the Ifrit is about to be released into this world. The portal to our dimension exists within a mysterious mansion... And the Ifrit must be stopped... Good luck. Ho ho ho!
- Sonic: Hey, Eggman! I bet he's up to no good again... I'd better go after him.
- Tails: Sonic, the "mysterious mansion" has gotta be around here somewhere! We need to hurry!
- Sonic: Boy, this place sure is creepy! Where could that "portal" be? Huh? Who's there?
- Sonic ghost: Heh heh heh...
- Sonic: Tha... that's me!
- Sonic ghost: Haa ha ha ha ha hee hee hee hee!
- Sonic: That's one spooky look on my face! I'm outta here! Hey! It's chasing me.
- Sonic: I can't seem to shake this guy. Wha!? It's changing! Now it looks like Tails!
- Tails ghost: Heh heh heh...
- Sonic: Hey, he just tried to hit me. I better see if I can knock this phantom out.
- Tails: Maybe this place really IS haunted... I never should've suggested we split up... Huh? Aaaaagh!
- Tails ghost: Hee hee hee...
- Tails: What? But that's... me!
- Tails ghost: Haa ha ha ha!
- Tails: I better get out of here!
- Sonic: Look! It's Eggman!
- Dr. Eggman Nega: Ku ku ku ku...
- Tails: What the...? You look like Eggman, but you also look... different... Sonic, look. Our alternate selves are back!
- Tails ghost: Heh heh heh!
- Sonic ghost: Ha ha ha ha ha ha HA!
- Dr. Eggman Nega: Ku ku ku ku...
- Sonic: It looks like Eggman's been possessed by a ghost, too. Okay, Tails. It looks like it's up to us to knock some sense into him!
Chaotic Inferno Zone
- Sonic: Darn... Now where'd Eggman run off to?
- Tails: Sonic, wait up! There are tons of Chao sealed up in this secret room here!
- Sonic: Just as I figured... Eggman was behind this! Tails, get these Chao to a safe place.
- Tails: Got it!
- Sonic: Hmm... What's this strange door? Is this the portal to the other dimension?
- Tails: Eggman must've escaped through here! Uh-oh! The door's closing!
- Sonic: I'm not letting you get away that easy, Eggman! Tails, we gotta hurry! We need to catch him before the door closes!
- Sonic: Whoa, where the heck are we? No time to worry about that now... I gotta find Eggman before the door closes!
- Tails: Sonic's counting on me! I have to track down Eggman before the door closes.
- Sonic: Eggman's plan must have been to revive the Ifrit. We've got to stop it!
- Tails: Sonic! Look out! The Ifrit has awoken!
- Sonic: What?!
- Tails: Pretty soon he'll-- Yes, master... I will defeat Sonic.
- Sonic: What the...? Tails? He's gotta be under... mind control! Great! Now I've got to take on the Ifrit AND Tails! Wait! Tails isn't totally under its control, but still... I've got to take them both on!
- Sonic: Tails! Are you okay?
- Tails: Mmm... yeah, I think so.
- Sonic: I guess the Ifrit wasn't really as strong as it was cracked up to be.
- Tails: Hmm. Perhaps it wasn't fully revived yet?
- Sonic: No need to worry about that now, let's head back to the Chao Garden and take a break.
- Tails: But shouldn't we look for Eggman?
- Sonic: We've taken out the Ifrit and rescued all the Chao... So, why do we need to look for Eggman?
- Tails: I guess you're right. Huh? Sonic? Hey! Wait for me!
