This is my own take on Season 3 of Sonic X. Since there are 26 episodes in Season 3, there will be 26 chapters.
There'll be many many changes, which I won't mention now, but you'll see them as they come up. There'll probably be pretty big gaps in-between updates, since it takes a while to rewrite every episode, especially with rewriting certain parts and adding all-new content.
Readers should be advised that this fanfiction is rated M for strong language and extreme graphic violence in the later episodes. There also is some suggestive content, too, but nothing too bad (no sex scenes or anything).
Disclaimer: I do not own Sonic and friends as well as the Metarex and Sonic X, they are all owned by Sega, Sonic Team, and all respective owners. Tsali and all OCs are owned by me.
Sonic X: Dark Chaos
Episode 53: The Cosmic Messenger
The powerful being known as Super Sonic dodged and weaved around the relentless attacks of his mysterious opponent, several miles above his home planet of Mobius.
A jet-black fox - Sonic's dogged opponent - let up on his attacks and floated still. With apparently extreme determination, this opponent was so powerful that not even Super Sonic could defeat him.
'Boy, this guy is tough...I gotta finish this, quick,' Sonic thought, as he prepared to fight again. The black fox also readied himself for yet another barrage of aggression.
After a short pause, they both flew at each other with extreme power, lighting up the sky with their impact. Sonic was thrown back, and he felt his power draining as he got more tired by the second. Unfortunately, his enemy looked completely unaffected.
"...You're not as strong as you think you are, Sonic. Give me the Chaos Emeralds, or else!" The black fox commanded.
Sonic knew the only way he could save the Emeralds. He stretched out his hands, and the seven glowing Chaos Emeralds appeared around him.
"Chaos Control!" Sonic yelled, and they all shot across space to parts unknown. The black fox seemed unfazed by Sonic's move.
Sonic, all out of energy, lost his super form and collapsed, his body falling into the atmosphere. The black fox, however, remained. He looked down on the planet with loathing in his eyes. That's when he noticed that the blow when Sonic and himself collided had exposed his metal underskin.
Not heeding his wounds, the fox turned and flew away.
Down on Planet Mobius, it was a quiet night, and Tails, Amy, and Cream were all on a hilltop. Tails had set up a video camera, as there were about to observe a beautiful meteor shower.
"How much longer do we have to wait?" Cream asked.
"I'm not exactly sure, Cream. Not too long." Tails assured.
"... This would be so romantic of Sonic was here to see it with me!" Amy fantasized. "Soon the whole sky will be filled with shooting stars!"
"According to the astronomers, we only get a meteor shower this large only every five hundred years or so. We're really lucky to be here." Tails explained.
"I surely wouldn't want to wait that long to see it again. Would you?" Cream said to her chaos, Cheese. Cheese replied with a little reply of "Chao!"
"We should all make a wish!" Amy offered.
"Why?" Tails inquired and turned around.
"Chris told us that if you wish whenever you see a shooting star, it'll come true! Remember?" Cream explained.
"Yeah... It's too bad Chris and Chuck aren't here to see this with us." Tails said sadly.
"I miss them. I wish I could go back to their world." Cream wished. That's when they all spotted a white ball streaking across the sky.
"Hey, it's starting!" Tails said, and readied the video camera. Instantly, what seemed to be thousands of bright-white streaks filled the sky in a stunning display of light.
"They look like fireworks!" Cream commented.
"I'm sure glad I brought a camera." Tails also commented. That's when they noticed a meteor that almost seemed like it was coming straight towards them.
"That sure is a strange meteor..." Amy commented.
"It looks like it's... coming straight for us...!" Cream added. All three of the heroes instinctively ducked as the "meteor" sailed over their heads behind a nearby hill. A gigantic boom was accompanied by a mighty reumbling blast as the "meteor" hit the ground.
Surprised, Amy, Cream, and Tails ran over to the impact site, weaving around flattened trees laying all about. They saw that it wasn't a meteor at all; it was a tiny spacecraft, obviously damaged beyond repair thanks to the copious amounts of smoke billowing from the hull.
However, the most interesting discovery lay a few feet in front of it. A small girl with green hair lay motionless in front of the wreck. Tails ran over to her and held her, checking her vitals; she made a small moan in response.
"It looks like she needs help," commented Tails.
"Here, let's take her to Cream's house," Amy suggested.
Sonic woke up to find himself lying on a bed; he was weak, and he felt morbidly tired. However, his alertness overcame him, and his eyes snapped open.
"It's about time that you finally came to," Sonic heard a familiar voice from his right. Sure enough, in a nearby revolving chair sat the burly Dr. Ivo Robotnik.
"Eggman... What happened?" Sonic asked the man.
"I've been sitting here for the better part of a week waiting for you to wake up and tell me," Eggman said, proceeding to explain. "I went out for a jog along the beach, but I spotted you nearly dead on the sand. You were in pretty bad shape. It was a difficult choice; I had to decide whether to save you, or wait for the tide to come in."
"You were in terrible shape, Sonic. Dr. Eggman saved your life." the small gray robot known as Becoe popped out of nowhere.
"If he hadn't, he wouldn't have had anyone to fight," Decoe also popped up. For some reason, Decoe and Eggman shrugged. Suddenly, Bokkun, holding a glass of something, flew down in front of Sonic.
"So how did you end up on the beach, anyway?" Bokkun asked.
"... I... I was fighting somebody in my Super form." Sonic answered. He stood up; by accident, he knocked Bokkun's drink out of his hand, which splattered all over the robot's face.
"Hey, sorry, but I can't say anymore!" Sonic apolagised, and started to speed away.
"You're leaving already?" Robotnik asked.
"See ya later, Eggman!" Sonic said, and sped off.
"Hey, you owe us, Sonic!" Decoe yelled after him.
"Let's get him!" Bokkun yelled.
While all three of his worker robots just kept shouting and yelling at Sonic, Eggman simply was wondering who Sonic got in a battle with; whoever it was, it must've been a very, very powerful being, for Sonic had never been defeated when he was Super Sonic.
From the vent just above him, unbeknownst to Eggman, he was being watched by a familiar treasure-hunting bat.
Cosmo was running through the dark corridor of a ship; running from what, she did not know. She ran and ran, and felt like her lungs would burst.
Suddenly, an blue-coloured explosion in front of her knocked her back. In the smoke, she saw the very one she was fleeing from; a black fox, stoic and ruthless. As the fox turned its head around, its dark-blue eyes full of hatred and loathing turning towards her, and they glowed blue, indicating that the fox was about to use some kind of Chaos power.
Cosmo was shocked; she couldn't to anything but cower. She was too scared to even move.
"COSMO! RUN AWAY! GO, NOW!" she heard a voice yell from behind her.
The green girl, known as Cosmo, regained consciousness and snapped out of her dream. Her vision was blurry. She heard a voice beside her saying "Look, she's waking up."
Cosmo slowly got up, feeling tired and weak. She noticed several figures beside her bed; a pink hedgehog and two rabbits; one tall, one short. However, she then noticed what she was fearing the most; a small fox with two tails.
"GAAH!" She screamed in fright as she locked eyes with Tails; she thought it was none other than her worst nightmare.
Tails, along with the others, recoiled in surprise from her reflexive reaction. "Whoa! Are you okay?" Cosmo then realized that this fox couldn't possibly be her nemesis; he didn't have his voice nor his mannerisms.
She calmed down slightly, relieved that her first impression was wrong. "Wait... You're not Tsali..."
"... Tsali?" Tails asked, not recognizing the name.
"You were in a big crash. You're really lucky you came out of that crash alive," Amy changed the subject,
"Could you tell us your name and where you and your ship came from?" Cream suggested.
Cosmo was a bit scared. "I can't..." she quietly replied.
"You mean, you can't remember?" the younger rabbit asked.
"I can remember, but I... can't tell you." Cosmo answered shyly.
"But why?" Tails asked.
"I am looking for someone on this planet named Sonic the Hedgehog. It's crucial that I speak to him ASAP... Before it's too late." Cosmo answered.
"You can talk to us. We'll help you if we can. What's the matter?" The fox offered.
"I... I can't tell you." Cosmo rebutted him.
"Well, I have a right to know what this is all about! Sonic's my boyfriend, and you better not try anything," The pink hedgehog shouted. Cosmo was just stared at her.
"Amy! Don't be rude. She didn't come here to date him," Cream held back the hedgehog.
"We're friends of Sonic, so maybe we can help." Tails offered.
"Friends?" Cosmo asked.
"... My name is Miles Prower, but everybody calls me by my nickname, Tails." Tails introduced himself.
"And I'm Cream. It's very nice to meet you," The small rabbit kindly introduced herself.
"And my name is Amy Rose! You're not gonna be here long, are you?" The pink hedgehog said in a still-stern voice. Cosmo just felt a bit scared, while Tails and Vanilla sweatdropped.
Suddenly, everybody heard a rumble, and everybody went to look out the window. The dark night sky suddenly glowed a bright blue as a shimmering ball of blue light streaked across the sky towards the planet.
When it impacted the top of a nearby mountain, a large blue explosion bloomed over the rocks, and from that explosion, a strange black fox appeared, floating in the air. It appeared to be looking about for something.
"What is that?" Cream asked.
"I don't know. It looks like a strange black fox..." Tails replied, trying to get a better look, "Hey wait a second! That fox has two tails, just like me!"
"You should stay in bed." Vanilla said behind them. They noticed Cosmo had gotten out of bed, and wanted to see what was the commotion. As soon as she looked out, she almost fell back in fear.
"So, he finally found me..." Cosmo muttered, "... Tsali's vengeance... has come to take me."
That's when several lightening bolts appeared, and without warning, areas of the forest exploded into brilliant azure-blue flames. The blue flames soon spread, spreading everywhere in seconds with a terrible whooshing sound. It was as if a nuclear firestorm had randomly erupted, except that it was blue.
"What the...! What's he doing?" Amy shouted.
Amy, Tails, Cosmo, and Cream all ran out of the door, and ran into the intact woods to see what was going on.
Meanwhile, on Angel Island, the echidna known as Knuckles was formerly sleeping on the hard stone steps in front of his beloved Master Emerald, but he was awakened by the explosion. He woke a sat up, and stared in wonder as the fox revealed himself in the fire. The fox, all of a sudden, went down closer to the ground, just above tree level.
"This looks like... trouble..." Knuckles muttered. Tsali's eyes glowed.
The black fox held out one of his hands. Without warning, a wave spread across the ground that uprooted and vaporized any trees in its path. Knuckles covered his eyes, as the ground shook and blue lightnening bolts flashed everywhere along the ground. Soon enough, the verdant forest was a now raging inferno of cobalt flames.
"... If that guy isn't stopped, he's gonna burn up every tree in the forest!" Knuckles said.
"Hey, knock it off, you jackass!" The fox sensed something about to attack him.
Knuckles flew up behind him, preparing for a swift kick. However, without warning, he felt some invisible force yank him backwards, like a magnet repelling from another magnet.
That's when the fox sensed his prize. He flew up into the air, and shot like a rifle bullet at the ground. With the sheer power of his strike, the ground shattered, and a small, galaxy-like object inside a crystal was revealed in the crater.
The fox floated down and grasped the object. It glowed in his hands as he leaped off into the woods. He admired his prize; the item he needed as energy harvesters, the fuel for the flames of his endless vengeance. The Planet Egg glowed slightly, and the glass sphere around it shined a little bit in the pre-dawn light. He felt the cobalt flames of his wrath burn everything around him.
Suddenly, he sensed a small group of figures approaching his location; in a nearby clearing stood a small fox closely resembling Tsali himself, a pink hedgehog, and small orange rabbit, and, as Tsali had sensed, the hated Cosmo.
Cosmo immediately cowered behind Tails and Cream, and Tsali could not help but smirk. From their location, Tsali's entire body was dramtically silhouetted by the blue flames to his rear like some sort of demonic god.
"Alright, you two-tailed fire freak!" Knuckles land next to his friends. Despite this development, the black fox did not say a word. Everybody focused their attention on the new villain.
"Hey you!" A voice came from the sky, and suddenly, a familiar blue hedgehog
"Sonikku!" Amy cried, her face instantly radiating with joy. Knuckles was the only one who hekld her back from glomping the blue hedgehog.
However, Tsali focused all his attention on Tails, even though it was obvious he noticed Sonic. So, this young child is the Chosen One? Well, he does look just like me... He jumped down into the clearing, closer to Sonic and his friends.
"Who the hell are you?" Knuckles demanded.
The black fox just smiled. Unknown to any of them except for Tsali, Tails and Cosmo had slipped away, and were piloting the X-Tornado. But Tsali decided that he wanted to have a little fun before he got off this rock, so he let them slip away.
"... My name is Tsali, and I am the Ultimate Weapon," The fox introduced himself, and pulled out a strange object. The heroes recognized it as a Chaos Emerald, but it didn't have the same color as any of the Chaos Emeralds. It was jet-black, just like Tsali's fur.
Knuckles suddenly started to glow red with anger, his power increasing sevenfold. "You'll regret coming here and trashing our planet!" He violently charged towards Tsali with ownage on his mind.
However, as soon as he was about to punch, Knuckles was thrown away by a simple stationary swipe. Tsali didn't even bat an eye.
"Knuckles!" Sonic shouted.
The hedgehog took a step forward, but faster than his eye could see or his body could move, Tsali disappeared with a distinctive shriek! He suddenly reppeared behind the group. He then disappeared and then reappeared again, teleporting back to where he started.
"He can... use Chaos Control...?" Sonic muttered in disbelief. He then gathered his will and, trying to do something to help his friends, charged. However, he felt something stop him, almost like an invisible brick all. Without warning, he was shunted away with incredible power, much more than he could normally handle. Sonic went flying over the trees.
"Here guys, I'll help!" A voice came down from above; Tails and Cosmo in the X-Tornado were flying down at them. Tsali simply watched it with almost quiet interest.
The X-Tornado's guns ripped, and hundreds of bullets shot out at the ground. Plumes of dust came from the strafing, but Tsali was completely unharmed, even though several bullets had hit him. The high-velocity rounds had literally pinged off of his skin harmlessly.
Amy realized what that meant; Could this fox be... a robot? And what does that girl have to do with all of this? Does she know anything about this robotic fox?
Several missiles shot from the Tornado, but as they hit Tsali, their explosions simply faded off, and Tsali was totally unharmed. In reply, Tsali held up his right arm so that it was aiming at Tails. A secret hatch that was covered with black fur suddenly opened up in his wrist, and out of it, an extremely tiny multi-barreled personal cannon popped out.
As the back end of the wrist weapon opened, Tsali slipped his black Emerald inside and shut it, the weapon rapidly beginning to glow blue with Chaos Energy. The black fox aimed carefully as his wrist-gun began glowing a bright blue.
Instantly, he opened up; the weapon fired a hurricane of blue Chaos Spears right up at Tails's plane. Tsali attempted to dodge the veritable anti-aircraft fire of their enemy as the black fox unleashed a furious storm.
Sonic attempted to get him while he wasn't looking, but Tsali sensed him coming; thus, he turned and opened up on Sonic instead. The blue hedgehog took cover from the hail of deadly cobalt bolts, which proceeded to brutally tear up everything behind the hedgehog, trees and soil alike.
By now, it was almost morning, and the sun was rising. The sky was beginning to turn bright and blue. Tsali suddenly held fire, opened up his personal wrist cannon, took his Emerald out, and closed it. The weapon retracted into Tsali's arm muscles, while a tiny hatch closed over it.
He then crouched, a wave of blue Chaos Energy rippling through the ground in a radius of several feet. He immediately shot up at light-speed into the sky, a blue blur going up and up.
"Hold it!" Sonic said, jumping up after Tsali.
Tsali said nothing in reply, but he pointed his finger down at the hedgehog. Promptly, a dozen blue Chaos Spears appeared from thin air and launched at him. Sonic was hit by one of them and was knocked to the ground.
"I got ya!" Knuckles yelled, and, with a football dive, he caught Sonic while skidding on the ground.
Everybody suddenly realized that all the plants and the trees were starting to wither and die. They simply stared dumbstruck as everything began to slowly wilt and turn barren in a few seconds.
"He's got the Planet Egg!" Cosmo, from the X-Tornado, said.
"Planet Egg?" Tails asked.
"It's the life force of you planet. It's the thing that gives your planet the power to sustain life. Without it, everything will soon perish. You have to get him, fast!" Cosmo explained.
"Uhh... Okay then, I'll stop this guy!" Tails instantly shot the plane upwards, giving chase to Tsali.
Tsali, with his impressive speed, was very very far ahead of Tails; Tails wasn't sure if his plane could handle the altitude. Slowly but surely, Tsali got farther and farther away, and soon enough, he exited the Mobian atmosphere.
"I can't go any higher! This plane wasn't designed to travel in space." Tails said, but he heard a few moans behind him.
He looked backwards, "Cosmo, are you alright?"
"I'm just... a little... dizzy." Cosmo said, shaking it off.
"Sorry. I just wish I got the Planet Egg back." Tails said. Cosmo, for some reason, was starting to open the cockpit.
"Hey, could you open this, please? You can open it while you're flying, can't you?" Cosmo asked. Tails seemed a bit confused by her question.
"Yeah, but I'm not sure it's such a good idea at this altitude." Tails replied.
"... Oh, OK, if you really want me to." Tails gave in, and opened the cockpit glass. Wind whooshed around, making Tail's fur and Cosmo's green hair whip from the wind.
"There you go!" Tails said, squinting, but to his shock, he saw Cosmo climbing out of the seat. She jumped off the plane, and hurtled through the sky forseveral seconds before her skirt unfolded and she slowly floated to the ground. Tails was a bit suprised at her manuever, but he simply shrugged it off and flew back down towards the planet.
He started to fly towards Angel Island, when he noticed something flashing.
"Hey, what's that?" Tails muttered.
He suddenly realized that it was the Master Emerald, glowing on and off for some reason. Tails went off to land his plane and get the news to Sonic.
"You didn't put up much of a fight against that guy, Sonic. Are you sure you're feeling okay?" Knuckles asked. They were talking in the black remains of the forest.
"You don't seem like your old self." Amy added with concern.
"It's been a long day, so I guess I'm a little tired... Huh?" Sonic said. Everybody looked up; they saw Cosmo floating downwards softly using her skirt as a type of parachute. She landed and brushed off her skirt.
"There you are. My name is Cosmo. I need to speak with you Sonic." Cosmo said to Sonic.
"... Okay." Sonic said after a short pause.
"I have sought you out because I know you have the power to control the Chaos Emeralds. I came here because I know that you are the one who can save the galaxy from the wrath of Tsali." Cosmo explained.
"Uhhh... I am?" Sonic asked incredulously.
Amy, meanwhile, had numerous thoughts buzzing in her head. This girl obviously knows more about this fox than she is telling...
"Hey guys! It's happening!" a voice called out from behind Sonic. From a ways away, Sonic saw Tails running towards them.
"What's happening?" Knuckles asked. Little did he realize that one of his old friends was about to come back to them one more time.
Sonic and his friends were all around the Master Emerald, staring at it as it flashed. Soon enough, a small black figure appeared inside of it. Everybody watched closer to see what this was.
That's when Sonic and Knuckles realized who it was, as the figure seemed to walk "forward."
"Is that...?" Amy wondered.
"...Chris!" Sonic and Knuckles exclaimed simultaneously.
"... It worked... I-I did it!... I actually did it!... SONIC!" A young voice spoke from the Emerald. Without warning, a human boy appeared, and fell down.
As he moved his eyes, he suddenly realized that he was back in his 12 year-old body; the oversized clothes were bagging off of him.
"Wait... Huhh?" Chris shouted in suprise.
