"Hey, Harvey! You might want to get some of these people to safety, you know how I get when there's blood around hint, hint." Alex could only hope that Harvey understood what she was meaning. "Wolfie, we can talk names later, but I need you to cut a path for Harvey to escape and get some of the people around here to safety, things are about to get messy." If this plan went accordingly, Alex would light all the blood in the streets, this would effectively wipe out the shades, but it could also mean that the city could need some major reconstruction afterwards.

The Shades that Zane, Harvey, and Alex were up against were dealt with very quickly...but it wasn't the end of all this chaos.
"Alright, I suppose that's enough to be considered stretching my legs..."
That dark and skin crawling voice returned from the shadows, as well as throughout the entirety of the city. It was almost like this creature was a cancer to this city at the moment...with the city in its clutches. Zane quickly noticed the Shades returning and forming anew, before slowly approaching the trio. It was obvious they were pushing them out of the alley and into the city...but in the streets...there was much more...destruction.
"N-No..." Zane simply said, in shock as he saw the streets of Metropolis bathed and painted with the blood of the civilians. The screams and cries of the ones still living being heard echoing through the streets.
"Tell me... DO I STILL KNOW NOTHING OF HELL? I personally think I'm doing a marvelous rendition!"
"Y-You sick piece of..." Zane's brow furrowed, his fists clenching as he heard the voice coming from all directions, almost toying with them.
"Hey, Harvey! You might want to get some of these people to safety, you know how I get when there's blood around hint, hint. Wolfie, we can talk names later, but I need you to cut a path for Harvey to escape and get some of the people around here to safety, things are about to get messy."
The Arctic Wolf only looked at the cat, before nodding with a sigh. "It's Zane..." he simply said, before moving in front of Harvey and Alex. "Try and keep up, will ya?" he smirked, as icicles began to form in both of his hands.
"NOW!!" Zane yelled, rushing towards the group of Shades, moving in a quick and precise way. Upon further inspection, one could see the ground freezing and unfreezing as he moved his feet, hacking and slashing at these Shades with the icicles. He growled slightly as he even began to throw a few at the ones who were running towards him. "Get the lead out!" Zane shouted back at Harvey.
Posted 31 May 2016 - 05:46 PM
"Ken, they wont stop unless we kill the original..."
Ken looked around at the insurgence of shadows they were up against...but they all looked the same to him. It was an impossible game of where's waldo the weasel! Ken gritted his teeth, as he knocked the lights out of shade that got a little too close for comfort. It bubbled and returned back to the encompassing shadow that formed around the brothers, and two more formed in it's place.
"You know Axel, I couldn't find that needle in a haystack if I was a giant magnet!" It was true...he might as well have been a horseshoe that was painted like a magnet. They both looked like they'd be able to have the forces that the real deal would possess..but truly they were worthless. However, a horseshoe still packs a punch when it's thrown at someone. That's all he could do for his brother now, just fight back the forces as best he could! They wouldn't get the best of them yet!
"Axel wait!" Ken scrambled to his brother. He was trying to finish this by himself. "You can't do this alo-"
The next thing Ken realized, was his brother, petrified in front of a giant wave of black sludge. Without thinking about what had just happened, Ken's muscles ushered him forward, and he unlocked the first inhibitor. In the blink of an eye, Ken had picked up his brother and rushed him away from the oncoming shadowy torrent. Instinct told him to bring the two to SIlver, and he appeared right by the grey hedgehog's side. Silver still looked star struck looking into the eyes of the black shades.
"Silver....What do we do! There's too many of them! We need to get out of here!" As Ken held Axel in his eyes, there was an unsettling amount of panic in his voice. Silver looked to his star pupils...his sons. He smiled.
"Ken...Axel...It's time you completed your training." Silver handed Axel a small leather pouch. "You boys may open your gifts as soon as you arrive. But don't worry...you won't be alone. I can sense them...I'll send some reinforcements." The shades charged the cabin. A rush of wind could be felt behind the brothers. As they turned around, they saw a green circle had formed...just like that one they saw fourteen years ago. Silver used his telekinesis to push the boys into the strange formation in space and time. As the boys fell into the portal, the last thing they saw was Silver's old and wrinkled face, still smiling as if it were just an ordinary day. "I love you both...now go and save the world." A tear fell down his cheeks, as a dark wave consumed him. The brother's screamed simultaneously as they fell into the void.
"Hey, Harvey! You might want to get some of these people to safety, you know how I get when there's blood around hint, hint. Wolfie, we can talk names later, but I need you to cut a path for Harvey to escape and get some of the people around here to safety, things are about to get messy."
"Well would ya look at this, a common thief caring about the denizens of the city. If everybody's all messed up, it'd be easier for you to make a livin' now wouldn't it. Maybe there's more to you than meets the eyes you bloody cat!" Harvey shot an electrified round of ammunition into the skull of a Shade that crept up behind Alex. "But I ain't leavin' you here! C'mon!" Harvey grabbed Alex by the wrist. "No matter how much you think lightin' the city on fire may do good, I don't think we could escape anymore collateral damage!" Harvey ran fast behind the arctic wolf, and made sure not to slip and fall on any ice that Zane had created. He was clearing quite the impressive path for them.
Just ahead of Zane, a green portal opened up in front of him, and he ran straight into the void. Harvey shook his head, the wolf just up and disappeared right in front of him. Maybe there was a chance he could save some citizens by himself. With Alex still in his grasp, he charged the portal with all his might. He was stopped short though, as he looked forward to see five separate beams of light penetrating his body. A stream of blood came from his mouth. He looked to the side to see Alex, who had been spared by the same light that he was struck with.
"Well...looks like its the end of the dusty trail for this dingo eh?" He wheezed, and more blood spattered onto the pavement. With Alex's wrist still in hand, he mustered all the strength he could to fling her in the portal along with the wolf. He saluted the two as they fell deeper into the vortex. "Don't worry Alex...their are plenty of other better policemen in Metropolis...I'm sure they'll wipe the rest of these guy's out no proble-" the light in his eyes faded, and he collapsed to the ground.
"Metal... do you know who is still alive and who's... scrapped?"
Metal looked deep into the reaches of his tattered RAM drive. It sparked as he thought and thought. Who got away...who got away all those years ago? A random spark flickered into his RAM port and he finally saw their faces.
"Metal Knuckles...Silver Sonic...Mecha...some Badniks....a couple of new faces you've never seen before. We built them after you were stored away...but that's all I can remember. I'm sorry Chimera." As Chimera was seen shuffling through the old drawers of the fortress, he realized what that clever robot was up too. "Ah...you think there's still hope for me Chimera...I am touched...honestly." This robot had come back from the grave and he was already taking charge and thinking of preserving his comrades. He was fit to be the leader for sure.
A new frequency could be heard on the Harmony Channel now...and it was approaching at a rapid pace. A crash through the ceiling of the Egg Fortress shook the building at it's core. Now standing on top of the old egg throne was a terrifying amalgamation of a robot.
"Ahhh...I thought I heard a familiar voice...." The robot made a terrifying laugh. "I knew you'd be back...I've been preparing myself Chimera. They hid you away so long ago, and didn't tell me your location. But now that you're back..." The robot stretched out it's mechanical limbs, and they whirred and steamed as if they hadn't been used in quite some time. "You might as well knock Metal Knuckles and Silver Sonic off that list you damn fool...they're currently...indisposed!"
"YOU MONSTER!" Metal shouted on the channel. "They were just trying to escape your wrathful ways! But you tracked them down and forced them to become one with the thing they hated most!"
"They were weak...I don't pity the weak like you do or Shard did!" He pointed at Chimera. "No...in order to become the best creation, I had to rip them apart and take the only good parts that were left! After all, I had to replace what got damaged in the war you know." The core in the middle of his chest started to glow brightly. "I AM MECHA SONIC! I HAVE COME TO CLAIM THE EGG THRONE AS MY OWN! ALL THAT STANDS IN MY WAY IS YOU CHIMER-"
The shouting was interrupted as two green vortexes formed in the air above Mecha. Four organic beings could be seen falling at a rapid pace and descended straight on top of Mecha Sonic. Ken opened his eyes, realizing he had fallen onto an incredibly hard surface.
"SILVER!" He shouted as he came too. He was then forced off of the pile along with the three others, as Mecha rose from his flattened position.
"HOW DARE MEATBAGS INTERRUPT MY SPEECH! I'LL KILL YOU ALL!" The Robot charged them, and Ken made sure to take a fighting pose, but was swiftly kicked away. His energy was drained after unlocking that chaos gate.
Posted 31 May 2016 - 06:42 PM
Zane was just in his own little world at this point, moving as quickly as he could. Shade upon Shade fell to him as he made the pathway clear for Harvey and Alex. However, while Zane was in his own world, destroying the Shades...he noticed a green portal suddenly opening up before him. "W-Whoa! What?!" Zane yelped, trying to skid to a stop, but with the ground being icy enough...he slid into it, falling into the portal.
Nothing was all Zane could see and feel at this point. He pondered if he was dead...but he wasn't, and he knew that. It wasn't long before he saw a faint movement above him. It looked like a body...and he was right. It was Alex's. She made it into this as well...but what of Harvey? Did he follow? Zane couldn't exactly figure that out as his eyes were pierced by a bright light as the portal opened up once more...
"I AM MECHA SONIC! I HAVE COME TO CLAIM THE EGG THRONE AS MY OWN! ALL THAT STANDS IN MY WAY IS YOU CHIMER-"
The Arctic Wolf could only groan, feeling the weight of a few others on top of him. He apparently landed first while Alex landed on him and two more dropped down. "O-Okay...not cool...can we...GET OFF!?!" Zane shouted, grumbling.
One by one the ones on top of him hopped off, before he finally got up. He surveyed the area...still no sign of the Dingo...but there were two Hedgehogs, odd to see Hedgehogs around here...but then he noticed three robots. The circuitry was impressive...he was about to wonder if they were made by Foxes or something...but the one robot seemed pissed.
"HOW DARE MEATBAGS INTERRUPT MY SPEECH! I'LL KILL YOU ALL!"
Zane noticed that the robot was going after the one hedgehog, who took a fighting stance. Given from the look, it was obvious he was tired. It was obvious too when he was kicked away with ease by the robot. He moved slightly, the ground beneath his feet turning icy as he began to skate around on it. "Alright...dunno what's going on here...but this on one hand versus those dark things...I think I prefer the latter!" he said, icicles beginning to slowly form in his hands as he threw them at the robot's arm and leg joints.
Posted 31 May 2016 - 06:55 PM
"No matter how much you think lightin' the city on fire may do good, I don't think we could escape anymore collateral damage!" Admittedly the plan had its holes but how else are they going to stop these shades? "Harvey, let go! These shades aren't going to stop unless I..." Alex looked to see that Zane had vanished into a green portal in front of them. "Wha? Grrr... Harvey let g..." Before she could finish her sentence, five beams of light, impaled Harvey, his blood splattered Alex a bit. "Well...looks like its the end of the dusty trail for this dingo eh?" With the last bit of his strength, Harvey threw Alex into the portal that had previously taken Zane. Alex could only look back at the old officer that had chased her for years, sending her off with a salute.
Alex awoke to find herself on top of a few others, including Zane. "O-Okay...not cool...can we...GET OFF!?!" Alex hopped off the top of the pile and saw that the other two people she landed on were two hedgehogs and one of them had some strange gear on him. "HOW DARE MEATBAGS INTERRUPT MY SPEECH! I'LL KILL YOU ALL!" Alex turned to see that everyone had landed on top of a robot, and he wasn't happy. In fact, Alex looked around and saw that she was in scrapped factory of sorts, she wondered if there was anything she could sell for a quick buck before turning to deal with the mad robot charging at the group. "Gah... out of knives... *sigh* ah well..." Alex lit her hand on fire and proceeded to form a large fireball. "I guess this calls for good old fashioned pyrokinesis." Zane had already shot some icicles at the robot's joints, so Alex took that opportunity to aim a shot straight for the robot's rusted head.
Posted 31 May 2016 - 09:55 PM
Chimera was... overloaded with... disbelief,,, and RAGE. Mecha... took apart SIlver Sonic and Metal Knuckles... to salvage himself? He killed his own brothers?! Even Badniks had standards, and Mecha trampled on them. Killing others and salvaging them for parts? Unforgivable... unforgivable. His left arm morphed into a machine laser gun, grabbing the USB in his other hand.
"What happened to you, brother?" He muttered. Yes, Mecha was always power hungry... he was always ruthless... but he was never like this. Over Harmony, the closest way to describe Mecha would be a screamo/heavy metal band. But now... he was... just a cacophony of noise... nothing but madness. He was like the zombie Pawns. He couldn't be reasoned with... He was lost to his own madness. At that moment, a portal opened, dropping in four organics. That didn't matter though. They didn't matter. All that mattered was Mecha.
"HOW DARE MEATBAGS INTERRUPT MY SPEECH! I'LL KILL YOU ALL!" The abomination then kicked one of the organics away before a wolf one began firing icicles while another threw flaming knives. But that didn't matter...
"Mecha," Chimera muttered as he took the USB with Metal's data, placing it in a secure compartment in the back of his head. "I will... set you free from your own madness...," He clenched his fist, memories of the times he had with Silver Sonic and Mecha Knuckles flooding his mind. "For their and your own sake... I will destroy you!!"
He held out his arm and began firing at Mecha, the lasers rapidly flying all over the place, most aimed for Mecha, but the shots were spread out so that if Mecha tried to dodge, he would still be hit. This haphazard way of attacking did leave an issue though. Many of those shots were on direct courses to hit the Mobians. Chimera didn't care though. All that mattered was destroying the monster Mecha had become. He activated his rocket thrusters, flying away from the now limp body of Metal Sonic and charging straight at Mecha, intent on running over anyone in his way.

"Father..." As his vision began to return, Axel rolled weakly off the pile of bodies that Silver's portal had dispensed them in. Slowly bringing himself to his feet, the white hedgehog allowed his gaze to drift across the faces of all those who were gathered as his senses began to feed him information about his surroundings. A cat with some sort of artifact that was producing chaos energy, a wolf that gave off a cold aura, Ken, and two entities that lacked any connection to the chaos force whatsoever but resembled the old hero Sonic...
"But don't worry...you won't be alone. I can sense them...I'll send some reinforcements." Silver's voice echoed in the back of his mind, causing him to wince from the pain that had taken residence in his chest and the pit of his stomach. The image of Silver's smiling face was still burned into his mind's eye, and the mere thought of his master's fate was enough to cause tears to begin to gather in the corner of Axel's eyes. "So these two are the reinforcements, huh?" He mumbled with a hint of spite in his voice.
Posted 01 June 2016 - 03:38 PM
As Ken slowly rose to his feet after being knocked away effortlessly, he was able to get a grasp of what was really going on. Somehow, Silver had transported the two brothers, along with two others, to a far off location. However, they were caught in a deadlock against what seemed to be a fight against two robots.
"Oh geez Silver...what have you gotten us into this time." The other Mobians there seemed to be a cat, and wolf...with their own unique set of powers. Behind them was a robot who was launching lasers from it's arm. He had never seen a robot before...only pictures that Silver had taken with foxes! Ken almost made his way over to the robot, but hesitated, seeing as they were now on a battlefield. Ken looked around for whatever seemed to have knocked him out, and he saw the other robot...a mix-up of all sorts of pieces that didn't seem to match.
"Wow...Robots are so cool..." Ken almost had to wipe the drool away from his mouth.
"Lets..." He heard the low grumbling voice of his brother. No doubt when Ken looked his way, Axel was charging chaos infused attack. "End this pointless conflict!" When the orb made contact, a giant shock wave reverberated throughout the room. That would surely knock any robots circuits loose!
"Pointless...?" a voice pierced the dust. "What's pointless is your pathetic...withering...LIVES!" Mecha rushed at Axel, his hand stuck out ready to choke the Mobian. Ken rushed in as fast as he could, and kneed the robot in it's side. The contact almost felt like it was shattering his kneecap, but he kept going. He then took the robots arm and twisted it, throwing it towards Chimera. Mecha made sure that he wouldn't fly directly towards his brother, as he boosted his jets and flew above all five of them.
"I hope you felt that..." Ken smirked, as he wheezed heavily. He was leaning on Axel by this point.
"I feel nothing...and you soon won't ever again!" Mecha unleashed a new volley of bullets at the group, moving his arm to try and get better aim at all of them. Ken picked up his brother, and tried his best to dodge the oncoming fire. He looked to the other two Mobians with a desperate look on his face.
"Be careful you two! Help us bring that bastard down!"
The room was clad with stone. Vines overtook most of the cracks, and nature was trying to reclaim it's grasp on this land. On a sundial in the middle of the room, a tiny flame danced along the rim.
"Ahhh...How wonderful it is to be home! These Mobians were probably waiting for a millennial for me to claim this throne!"
At the far end of the room was a marble throne. It looked completely different from that of the rest of the chamber's interior. Giant holes in the out ridges of the temple let sunshine pour into the room from all angles. Mirrors bounced the suns rays back and forth until they converged onto the Marble throne. It glistened as the rays tried to puncture the surface, but were merely refracted into a dazzling display onto the ceiling. From the shadows, Mephiles took form. He made sure to keep his distance from that intense light.
"And how went the cleansing, my dearest creation?"
Mephiles clasped his hands together and knelt his head.
"I have wiped out ninety-nine percent of the worlds chaos sensitive population...only a few mere stragglers survived." A ray of sunshine was bent and directed at Mephiles, who flinched as the rays seemed to sear his flesh. He grunted in discomfort.
"How could you let mere prey escape?! Can you not find them!?"
"Somehow, their presence is being masked...I know not how, but I can be sure that I only know of four that escaped our clutches." The sunshine redirected itself away from Mephiles, and there was a short sigh of relief.
"Only four you say...no matter. Four cannot stop a god. Good work Mephiles. However your list of tasks grows longer. Recover the chaos emeralds, and release Iblis...that is all for now."
"Understood, Lord Gwynn." Mephiles nodded, as he sank into the floor. He already knew he had to find Iblis and unleash him, but he couldn't sense his other half....there must've been some reason why.
Posted 01 June 2016 - 03:57 PM
"WHOA!!" Zane yelped as he barely dodged a salvo of lasers that was being shot from a strange robot. "Jeez! You'll get your turn later, ya rust-bucket!!" he grumbled, skidding back some, trying to regain his composure. But that was the least of Zane's worries. Next thing he knew, the robot he shot the icicles into, turned its arm and started shooting at him and Alex.
"DIE FRAIL FLESH CREATURES!"
"Alright...this guy needs to 'chill' out...like BIG TIME!!" Zane rolled to his left, dodging the bullets before returning to skating upon the icy ground that formed beneath his feet.
"Lets...End this pointless conflict!"
The arctic wolf stopped short, seeing the one hedgehog unleashing an attack of the likes he never saw before. He watched it landing directly between the two robots as they rushed towards one another. The explosion was a massive one to say the least, as Zane covered his eyes from the sheer power the blast had. However, when he lowered his arm, he saw the one robot moving towards the two hedgehogs.
Alright...maximum effort...let's go! Zane thought, running towards the two hedgehogs, quickly skating once more. As he began to near the group, the one hedgehog had time to knee the robot in the side...a feat that probably hurt like hell. But regardless, it did something, especially since it was flying towards the other robot...until he stopped suddenly by the effort of it's boosters.
"Be careful you two! Help us bring that bastard down!"
Zane quickly strafed as he skated through, dodging the bullets that were being shot. "Don't worry about us! You better just find some cover, pronto!" he smirked, before leaping into the air, as he threw a few more icicles towards the robot. He figured if he could at least lodge one into the mechanized creature's gun, it would malfunction and possibly explode.
Posted 01 June 2016 - 04:35 PM
"I should never have gone out today..." She mumbled under her voice as she got out of the way of the bullets. Zane and the two hedgehogs seemed to have been no more than a pain to the robot than an actual threat as it took all their attacks as if it didn't hurt.
"Be careful you two! Help us bring that bastard down!" Oh was that a fact? Of course Alex needed to be careful of a pissed off robot. Though she needed something other than fire to bring a robot down, she looked around and found a piece of scrap that had a very sharp edge to it. "Perfect..." Alex took the piece of metal and lit it ablaze just like she would with her knives. She looked to see Zane throwing more icicles at the robot and he seemed to be aiming for the gun.
"If he gets it right... that gun will probably blow up in the robot's face... then while he's distracted I could... let's hope this works..." Alex thought that if the robot would get distracted long enough from its gun blowing up in its face, she could rush it and plunge the piece of scrap into it's body, if this works, then the robot could go up in flames, if Zane's icicles met their mark.
Posted 02 June 2016 - 02:17 AM
"Let's... End this pointless conflict!" one of the squishy organics shouted. A orb crashed into the two mechanical warriors, the resulting explosion throwing the two in opposite directions across the room. A chaos energy based attack? Was Shadow now attacking? No... No... This was no Shadow... Not even the shadow of a shadow.
Eggman had done a few good things by him: he was programmed to observe and build data sets about units in combat so should the day come that he'd have to battle them, he'd know how they fought from the get go. Even now, he was doing just that nearly subconsciously. He was, after all, a combat robot. He didn't have the ability copying power Metal possessed however... That seemed to be a miracle Eggman was never able to replicate. These four were a threat now, and he would be rid of them.
"Pointless?" He asked as he held out his right arm. "I don't expect soulless organics like you to understand the crimes he has committed, but I will not allow you to interfere," his hand retracted into his arm, which loaded up a missile. Then, his shoulder and arm opened up to reveal more missiles. "Disappear," he said simply as he fired off a volley of missiles at the organics. When he finished, he reloaded, aiming at Mecha and firing more missiles. Afterwards, he reverted his arm back to normal and began to spin in place, the signature sound of a spin dash reverberating across the room as he launched himself at Mecha.

Ken tried to keep up the pace, but dodging gun fire was an entirely new thing to him. Although, he could see the bullets as if they were slowed down quite a bit, so it made dodging them a whole lot easier. The only problem was that he had some precious cargo on his back, and dodging every bullet so that not even one would graze his brother was becoming a little hard to handle. But this is what he had been training for his whole life...so that his brother could rely on him every once in a while.
"Pointless? I don't expect soulless organics like you to understand the crimes he has committed, but I will not allow you to interfere. Disappear!"
"Aw crap...what is it now..." Ken looked behind him for a brief second, only to notice a barrage of missiles heading for him and Axel. It seemed that they had come from the other robot that was in much better condition. He would they possibly avoid all of them?
"Keep moving... I'll handle it." By the tone of his voice, Ken could tell that Axel had somewhat of an idea.
"Alright...but try not to overdo it okay?" Each time a missile had come close enough to cause both of them harm, they were merely teleported through space and time just long enough for them to dodge the waves of flame. Was it chaos control, or just his teleportation that was helping them out. Whatever it was, it sure was a life saver. "Say...I thought you needed one of those chaos rubies or whatever to use that?"
After the onslaught of missiles subsided, they took their time catching their breaths. These do or die situations in one day were starting to put a toll on his body. On the other side of the battlefield, he could see the Cat being battered against the floor by the damaged robot. It was fast...but it being damaged meant that they could destroy him! As it fired a beam of energy at the undamaged robot, it seemed like it toppled over in a sign of weakness. Ken pumped his fist.
"Sweet! Maybe they'll take each other out!" However, they'd still need to put in work on the damaged guy. Looking to his brother, there seemed to be a strange glow about him. No doubt he was charging chaos force.
"Don't even bother trying to object." Ken smirked. That was exactly like him. The cold, brooding loner. "They need our help..." Ken nodded. "Let me worry about our movement. Just do what you do best, and smash 'em!" In the blink of an eye, Ken and Axel were above the entire battlefield, he could almost touch the ceiling of the giant fortress. Ken could see it all! Taking aim, he looked at Mecha. He smiled and cracked his knuckles.
"Well...I ain't about to go easy on some deranged power crazed robot now am I?" He could feel his body unlocking the first chaos gate. His stomach twisted...it was the second time he had used it today. "Here I come you bucket of bolts!" As he descended, he started to spindash, and darted even faster towards Mecha. As he approached the Robot's head, he stuck one leg out to have it come crashing down on it.
Posted 03 June 2016 - 12:12 PM
Zane smirked as he watched the one robot's arm detonate when his icicles lodged themselves into it. Plans seemed to come together now, and it was going good! However, it wasn't good enough. As Zane kept skating off, he looked behind him, seeing the robot zooming past him with Alex in hand. He jumped back, in the nick of time, watching him just zoom away. I-If I didn't dodge that...oh man...things would've gotten ugly... he thought.
Before long, he saw the flung body of Alex heading straight towards him. Zane sighed a bit, before rushing up to meet her half way, before jumping up in the air to catch her. Contact was finally made, as he landed, falling a bit on his back. He groaned, rubbing the back of his head before moving Alex to the side. "B-Best stay put right here for the moment..." he said to her, propping her up beside some rubble, before standing back up.
"THIS IS WORLD WE LIVE IN NOW.... Kill. Assimilate... only the strong will survive in my domain!"
"Sounds like a dull place, actually." Zane spoke up, stretching a bit. Truth be told, he was getting tired. Between this and what happened in Metropolis, he was starting to get burnt out. However, he gazed at the two hedgehogs and how they had this something...he wasn't sure what it was, but they weren't giving up. So neither was he...
Zane exhaled slowly, before quickly moving and skating along the ground again. He watched the one hedgehog leap into the air, his leg going to be crashing down onto the robot. However, the robot was fast...he'd move out of the way...unless... THAT'S IT!!
He smirked as he circled around the back of the robot, and right there he began to freeze the ground that it stood on. This of course, caused ice to form around the robot's feet and legs, before encasing the lower half in a sort of ice prison. "Heh...how about you 'chill' out?" he chuckled, before moving out of the way, giving a thumbs up to the hedgehog.
Posted 03 June 2016 - 02:31 PM
Alex was dazed out of mind as her limp body was caught in mid-air by someone. When Alex opened her eyes for a sec she saw that it was Zane. "B-Best stay put right here for the moment..." Zane leaned Alex against some rubble and went to handle the robot along with the hedgehogs. Alex looked at her limp body, it was beaten and bloodied, and she could barely lift her arm up, she was beaten inside and out. "Ugh... this is... a tough mess... you've gotten yourself into Alexandra..." Alex said to herself before passing out from the pain.

"HEHEHAHAHAHA!" Chimera looks up as his brother placed his foot atop Metal's head and grabbing the second most powerful Metal Series's arm. Easily yanking the limb off of his already wounded donor, Mecha casted aside the metal shell, the wires in his arm snaking out, assimilating Metal's arm."THIS IS WORLD WE LIVE IN NOW.... Kill. Assimilate... only the strong will survive in my domain!" Chimera quaked his anger. This wasn't what was supposed to happen... This... Wasn't...
Shifting his attention over to Chimera, Mecha Sonic took a step forward and began charging more energy in his chest cavity. "I wonder which of your parts will survive after this... He taunted. "DIE!" His voice was heralded by another beam attack. One large enough to scorch the ground as it traveled towards it's targets and cause the very air around it to sizzle from the sheer amount of heat.
Chimera acted quickly, creating his Black Shield to protect him from the attack. Still, even with the powerful force field up, he was pushed back, and his sensors were warning him about the heat, Mecha was always powerful, but this Unit Beam was something else. After what felt like for another hundred years, the attack relented. Chimera looked up to see the ice organic freeze the lower half of Mecha as another spin dashed from high above and smashed his foot into Mecha's head. Now was his chance.
He clenched his fists, spikes resembling Knuckles the Echidna's popped out, and he dashed at the ground, rearing his fist back. "MECHA!!" He roared as he dashed past all the organics to deliver a punch straight across his brother's smug face. "Why?! WHY DID THEY ALL HAVE TO DIE?!" He used his other fist to punch Mecha in the chest. "YOU THINK THAT'S WHAT FATHER WOULD HAVE WANTED?!" Honestly, Mecha originally was doing Eggman's will: conquer the world. However, he spiraled into madness. He slugged away at him. "WHY DID DOLL HAVE TO DIE? WHY MECHA KNUCKLES?! WHY SILVER?!" Each name was punctuated with a punch, rage igniting his very programming. He drew back his fist, channeling all his available power into it, the limb beginning to spark with energy.
Chimera threw his final punch into Mecha's chest, the resulting blow causing a shockwave to explode from behind Mecha and dent the metal wall behind them. With that, Chimera backed away from his brother. He couldn't stay still for too long, lest he get double teamed by Mecha and the organics.

"Well...I ain't about to go easy on some deranged power crazed robot now am I?" His brother taunted as the pair descended on to their target in a high speed spin dash. Closing his eyes, Axel observed as the wolf followed suit and swiftly encased Mecha's lower body before shooting the brothers a thumbs up.
"Heh...how about you 'chill' out?"
With no way to escape, Mecha made a futile attempt to grab at the skating wolf, though instantly stopped all movement after. The ensuing impact let loose a powerful shockwave that sent both the brother's and Mecha sonic reeling in opposite directions as the ice prison shattered into a hail of glimmering crystals. Though one combatant was not deterred.
"D-DAMMIT! SCANNERS DAM-AAGED... " Mecha Sonic's voice cracked with interference as he tried his best to block Chimera's fist, nowhere near fast enough to stop the other robot from slugging him in his face.
"Why?! WHY DID THEY ALL HAVE TO DIE?!" Mecha was rendered helpless, as Chimera began savagely bashing him with his spiked knuckles. Shards of his armor began to take to the air as every hit from his brother caused Mecha's entire body to violently tremble. "YOU THINK THAT'S WHAT FATHER WOULD HAVE WANTED?!" Father? What did it matter what he would have wished? The Doctor had created countless other MS models after Mecha... he didn't care about his creations. They were simply stepping stones for his selfish desires...
"Hehehehehe..." Mecha let loose a weak laugh as Chimera continued to pound him. Was Chimera too blind to realize that he was no more than a tool whilst Eggman was alive?
"WHY DID DOLL HAVE TO DIE? WHY MECHA KNUCKLES?! WHY SILVER?!" Survival. They had to die so that he could live... so that he could be the one creation that truly survived for it's own agenda.
"HaHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" The crumble husk that had once been Mecha Sonic cackled madly whilst Chimera prepared the final blow. "TO BE SO POWERFUL YET SO FOOLISH..." His flickering gaze locked onto Chimera's eyes as the other bot swung the final punch. "You truly are his greatest puppet. Carrying on his name and fighting for his honor as if you were truly his so-!" He was suddenly silenced by Chimera's fist, as force rag throughout the wall behind him, kicking up a massive cloud of dust.
"Thank you brother... but I think I can handle using legs now." Axel's solemn voice broke the lofty silence that had suddenly crept over the the battlefield. Having been watching the spectacle from atop Ken's back, the white hedgehog slid down to his feet with a grunt before cautiously moving towards Chimera with his hand raised not only as a sign that he meant no harm, but that he was ready to defend himself if necessary.
"You..." He began as he tried to find the right words. "you're not like him are you?" Though Axel couldn't sense any connection tying this mechanical creature to the Chaos Force, the boy new when he sensed powerful emotion... Unlike the other robot, this machine was... it was hurting. "We're not your enemies. Me and brother ar-" Axel suddenly stopped, shifting his gaze to the cloud of dust that still lingered where Mecha Sonic had been defeated with a look of sheer panic.
But it was too late. Ripping through the curtain of smoke, the partially destroyed body of Mecha sonic approached the group at speeds previously unseen by the worn robot. With one of it's arms rendered completely useless after the beating he had just taken, Mecha opted to simply ram his skull into the chaos manipulating flesh creature, sending his victim rolling away.
"I-I MAY ALSO BE A PUPPET..." His scanners were completely useless as this point. "BUT..." Activating his beam saber, Mecha rotated his entire body, taking a swipe at the other hedgehog, before abruptly kicking the Mobian in the chest; taking advantage of the initial overly telegraphed first attack. "RAAAAAAAAAAAWWWHHHHH!" Using the last bit of fuel in his thrusters, Mecha blasted off of Ken, colliding with Chimera with a loud metallic clunk.
"But I can see the strings..." The old bot's voice began to grow raspy as he glared down at his brother, pinning him down with his good hand. "I'll s-urvive long enough to cut tho-those... those strings!" A familiar light began to glow from inside Mecha's chest cavity, and though he had no mouth the grin with, there was a certain smugness to his next words. "UNIT BEAM!" The light grew more vibrant, though instead of the glorious burst of energy that had be released the last time, what followed was a meager explosion that was jsut barely overtook the two robots blasting them a few feet apart.
A somber black smoke was now billowing from Mecha's twisted chest cavity. As he forced himself shakily to his feet, the bot realized he had just blown his core reactor. "One." He choked as he drew his beam saber a final time. "C-Creation..." With a final burst of energy, Mecha leaped forward to engage Chimera a final time. "ONE BROTHER AT A TIME!"

Chimera was not in a good position. Mecha ramming him didn't do much damage, but the damage from the explosion staggered him, and shook some things loose, but otherwise, he was okay. No, the damage was... something else. Puppets? They weren't puppets... were they? He shook his head. No, no... he couldn't have doubt now. Mecha could capitalize on it. He growled as he saw Mecha create his beam saber.
Despite everything going on... a sense of nostalgia flooded Chimera as he reformatted his arm, the parts retracting and rearranging until they formed a chainsaw, which he used to block the saber.
"Damn... I still can't beat you...," Chimera was lifting himself off the ground, having been knocked down by Mecha's assault. Mecha simply chuckled as he approached Chimera, offering a hand to him.
"But of course. Who do you think I am, Metal Sonic?" The taller machine helped his little brother stand up. "You are powerful, Chimera, but you're still green," Chimera blinked, confused.
"I am pretty sure my paint is white," Chimera commented. Mecha shook his head and tapped the side of the younger's bot's head.
"No, I mean you're a novice... an amateur... but that's something that will be fixed with time...," Mecha chuckled and stared off into the distance. "Yes... and then we can use our power to change the world... to make it a world for Badniks...," Chimera had to admit, it sounded wonderful. And heck, that's what Father wanted to, right?
"Mecha, we'll... we'll all be family still... even if Father passes, right?" The Doctor had... well, between dangerous experiments and bouts of sickness, the robots were worried he may pass on before he could see the glorious world he wanted to create.
"Of course," Mecha rubbed Chimera's head. "Now, go on, you should get a check up after that beating I gave you," Chimera chuckled as he walked off... unaware this was the last time he would see his family for two hundred years.
How did everything change so much? How was the stern but gentle leader Mecha once was degrade into the monster he saw before him? At first, he wanted to destroy Mecha, to pound him into metal fragments, but as the fight dragged on... did he want to lose his mentor? At last, he came to a decision.
"Mecha... that arm's not yours," He growled as he pushed back at Mecha, throwing him off and starting the chainsaw. He swung, the sound of metal ripping through metal as it dug into the arm he stole from Metal, tearing it off. He looked into his brother's eyes as he started his next speech. The words tumbled out, but he hoped they would make it through.
"I wish I could be the one who could finally show the way. I wish I was the one that knew just what to say. But I'm not. I'm not some hero, or a machine that gives others hope..." He approached Mecha slowly. "Just know Mecha... despite everything...," He wrapped an arm around his brother before stabbing the chainsaw through Mecha's stomach. "... I still love you brother...," He tore the chainsaw down his body before swinging it horizontally, separating Mecha's head from his body.
Chimera felt something fill inside of him. He wasn't sure what it was... but despite it filling him... he felt hollow. Holding out his hand, he caught Mecha's head in it. There was a way to save him... although, he wasn't sure if it would work. He turned, walking past the organics, headed back to his pod. This could work. He looked at the one organic that tried to talk to him as he passed.
"No... I am not like him," was all he said as he headed off. He would try to save the remainder of his family.

With the assistance of the wolf, Ken was able to strike a devastating blow atop of the robots head. However, he was knocked away once again. The robot definitely had some fight left in him. Sadly, all Ken could do in the moment was hold onto his brother.
"Thank you brother... but I think I can handle using legs now."
Axel climbed off of Ken's back, and edged his way closer to the robot that they had been wary of this whole time. Ken reached out for his brother's arm, but knew it would prove futile. He retracted it instead. Instead, the robot unleashed an onslaught of blows on the other, spouting harsh words as he did. The other replied slowly, as it was receiving heavy fists to vital parts. This battle was truly intense.
"You...you're not like him are you? We're not your enemies. Me and brother ar-"
As he was trying to make peace, the dust cleared and Mecha had reappeared with a vengeance. He rammed into Axel, and Ken could hear the cracking of bones from his position. He tried desperately to move his body to try and catch Axel, but he was caught off guard when the Robot made it's way to him. It swung it's arm, attached with a sword of sorts, and dodged it. He was met with a kick in the guts, and was rebounded off of. When he finally managed to pick himself up, it was the other robot that had gained the upper hand. With a chainsaw attached to one hand, and Mecha in the other, he spoke.
"Just know Mecha... despite everything..... I still love you brother..."
As the robot mentioned that Mecha was his brother, it was though a string was tugging at Ken. The string resonated as it swung back and forth. Was the robot like him. As the robot plunged its chainsaw into the other's chest, Ken looked away. If he were in the same position, he might've not been able to do the same thing. As the light in Mecha's eyes faded, the battle had finally come to a close...or had it? They all weren't so sure that the other robot was on the same kind of warpath...after all he did fire at them as well. Ken slowly walked to the other robot, his teeth gritted and a hand placed over his bruised stomach.
"You really aren't like him huh...I could hear the pain in your voice." Ken's voice was shaky too. It was a miracle he had the strength to speak at all. "It must have been hard to do that...it must be hard to know that this place is so banged up because of him. But that doesn't mean you can't like...rebuild right?" Ken looked around...all the others were hurt as well, especially the cat. "But you can't rebuild if there's not a world left." Ken pointed towards Chimera. "You're strong...very strong. It'd be awesome i-if you could join my brother and I...we're going to try and save it all." With a weary smile, Ken dropped to a knee. He had finally collapsed from how tired he was.
Would the robot come to understand what he was trying to say? Or would he and the others fall victim to the harsh and cold steel.

Chimera stared at the head he held in his hand, as if staring hard enough would give him answers... Was it a virus...? Loneliness...? What drove Mecha to do what he did? He let out the robotic equivalent of a sigh. Sometimes, other robots were just an mystery, one not meant to be solved. The bright side was that because Mecha was not on the verge of shutdown before he was killed, he wasn't dead, like Metal would have been... Instead, he was more of in a coma... What should he do with him...?
"You really aren't like him huh...I could hear the pain in your voice." Chimera heard another voice, one belonging to a different hedgehog speak out to him. "It must have been hard to do that...it must be hard to know that this place is so banged up because of him. But that doesn't mean you can't like...rebuild right?" Rebuild...? He could... Couldn't he...? He looked around. Maybe he wasn't the leader Metal was, or the powerhouse Mecha was... But he could build... "But you can't rebuild if there's not a world left." Ken pointed towards Chimera as Chimera stared. Why was the world coming to a end this time? Chaos released? The ARK crashing into the Earth? ... Werehogs? "You're strong...very strong. It'd be awesome i-if you could join my brother and I...we're going to try and save it all."
Chimera watched as the hedgehog dropped to his knee. Should he join these obviously inferior organics..,? No... That's why he needed to join. They wanted to save the world when they couldn't stand against Mecha in base form? They were going to need all the help they could get.
"Alright... I will join you," he stated simply. "I am MS-11 Chimera,"
