War of the Worlds!
8,000 years into the past, the newly created Chaos flexes his claws, marveling at the sheer amount of power he feels from the Chaos Emeralds as Sonic and Tikal look on horror. Knuckles proceeds to lead his fellow Echidnas into driving the Drakon invaders from the city as the Great War begins. Sonic enters the fray to aid the Echidnas, desperately fighting Chaos' fear effect, hoping to destroy the monster there and then, believing he would then be able to prevent Johnny's death in the future. As Sonic struggles within the belly of Chaos, Pochacamac uses the power of the Chaos Emeralds to transport Sonic back to the present day. With the monster weakened, the Echidnas seize their chance to attack.
Back in the present, Knuckles and the remaining Freedom Fighters arrive at Robotnik's Retreat in search of the Chaos Emeralds, as does Chaos. Dr. Robotnik delights in the fact that they will all be destroyed together, but muses upon the absence of Sonic. As if on cue, Sonic bursts out of Chaos' chest as the monster remembers what happened. Meanwhile, 8000 years earlier, the Echidnas recover after their battle with the Drakons. While Tikal muses upon Sonic's fate, Knuckles and Pochacamac consider how Knuckles remains alive in the future, the war and the uncertain future of the Echidna race.
