Point of No Return!
As Super Sonic continues to absorb the chaos energy from within Perfect Chaos himself, Sonic insists his alter-ego will return to his evil ways, but Ebony has faith that Super Sonic will remain harmless. Super Sonic soon emerges clutching Chaos, now in his original Drakon form, seeming retaining his pacifist nature, much to Ebony's delight. However, he quickly reveals that he is back to his psychotic self by violently attacking everyone gathered with his eye beams. As the Freedom Fighters get to their feet, Super Sonic flings the now harmless Chaos over the wall of the ruined fortress, where he lands in a large pond where Big the Cat is fishing. Before Super Sonic can really let loose however, Tails strikes the first blow and is blasted away in a fit of rage, much to Sonic's horror. As Tails gets to his feet, Sonic confronts his alter-ego, who is gleefully torturing Knuckles.
As both Sonics begin to clash, Grimer confronts Dr. Robotnik, and promptly quits the insane dictator's service in disgust. As Super Sonic holds Sonic in place, Ebony casts a magic spell which seems to destroy Sonic, much to Super Sonic's delight. Immediately afterwards though, Super Sonic begins to turn blue as Ebony reveals that she merely merged the two hedgehogs back together again. Sonic reassumes his normal form and the Freedom Fighters muse upon the future and what might happen next time Sonic becomes stressed out, Sonic merely stating "we'll deal with it, we'll always do," as an image of Johnny Lightfoot smiles upon them from above.
