Town Mission 12: Defeat the Pursuers and Escort Elise! is the twelfth Town Mission in Silver's story in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006).


It takes place in Castle Town, Soleanna. Amy Rose has just returned to the town after rescuing Princess Elise from the clutches of Dr. Eggman. However, out of spite, the doctor has sent forth his army of Badniks to track down and assassinate them. Amy makes it her promise to protect Elise from the hostile robots and escort her to safety.

This Town Mission automatically begins after the cutscene that follows White Acropolis. The mission therefore must be completed in order to continue with the game.


This Town Mission's basic goal is defeating all the enemies. The enemies are all located along the streets to the left of the starting point. There are few robots to destroy, and dealing with them is a breeze. Virtually all the enemies can be defeated with a mere blow or two of Amy's Piko Piko Hammer. There is an alternative attack method: just before the housing area, the player can jump onto the roof and explode some crates, dropping spiky balls onto the robots below, although using the hammer is often faster. The Town Mission is cleared when every robot has been defeated.


  • This is the only Town Mission in the entire game which does not feature the story's character (in this case, Silver). It is also one of only two Town Missions in which the player can play as characters other than Sonic, Shadow or Silver, the other mission being "The Legend of the Three Musketeers" in Sonic's story.
  • Unlike the name suggests, Princess Elise does not appear during the mission.
