    Sonic and the gods

    An editorial concerning the legends of Sonic and their relationship with aspects of the video games.

    Let us begin our wonderful adventure into the wonderful and (dramatic pause) amazing world of the legends of Sonic the Hedgehog. I will focus on the many powerful emeralds in the Sonic games. Let us begin by going into each game in chronological order. I will start each section by asking a question (in bold) and the by answering the question, and then give a possible skeptic-bigot’s response. Lets start with the first game:

    Sonic the Hedgehog – Why are there only six chaos emeralds? Well there are two possible answers. The first is the most widely accepted. The seventh emerald simply hadn’t been discovered yet. Another solution (that I can not accept credit for because my friend told me this) is that there are actually 13 chaos emeralds and the South Island ones are the six In this game and were either destroyed at the end of this game or at their last game gear appearance(depending on what you consider canon).
    Skeptic: HAHAHA 13 Chaos Emeralds that can’t possibly be true there are only seven. Who said there couldn’t have been six extra emeralds sometime in the past. The Game Gear games seem to imply it. Also the theory states they were destroyed so there are only seven now. Also In Sonic Mega Collection, in the game manual it clearly says “discover the chaos emeralds” which may imply the seven in Sonic 2 are being discovered for the first time in ages.

    Sonic 2 – Were the emeralds really “sealed away by the gods”? In a word, yes. Remember the culture that Sonic is coming from. In Japan Shintoism is the nation’s religion, Shintoism holds belief in many gods. In fact, Japan is filled with belief in different gods. The only reason this is ignored is because Americans usually believe in one God or no God. I’d imagine that Sonic Team probably believes in many gods so this is canon.
    Skeptic: You’re just being stupid everyone knows there is (no or one) God! I’m not debating theology I’m debating Sonic. Don’t get me wrong I believe in only one God, but Sonic Team apparently doesn’t believe like I do (And just so you skeptics get even madder at me, the reason the Master Emerald can control the Chaos Emeralds is, to put it simply, because the M.E. is the god of chaos emeralds).

    Sonic 3 and Knuckles – Aren’t the Super emeralds really just the chaos emeralds? NO!!! There is one simple way to disprove this, First, collect the seven chaos emeralds (as Sonic or Tails) but don’t go into the super ring. When you get to Hidden Palace Zone you are holding seven and there are seven on the alters and the M.E., making a total of fifteen emeralds. The Chaos Emeralds on Floating (or Angel) Island in the Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles stories are really the Super Emeralds.
    Skeptic: That is completely stupid, the Chaos emeralds were powered down by the M.E. and then changed super. If you still disagree with me then you are simply not following the game’s story line. The game manual says there are 14 Emeralds to save. Now allow me to explain. Dr. Eggman some how stole the super emeralds and used them to launch his Death Egg in Launch Base Zone (the game story says the Death Egg lost its ability to fly and only the chaos emeralds can repair it yet in Launch Base we see the Death Egg Blast of while Sonic is holding the Seven Chaos Emeralds) Sonic then brought Chaos Emerald(s) to the Master Emerald where the Master Emerald teleported the Super Emeralds back to their alters. Then Roboeggman stole them and Knuckles had to get them back. After that the Super Emeralds remain hidden on the Island till today. This is the only theory that explains why the Super Emeralds don’t appear in any more games, because they are separate from the Chaos Emeralds and they are hidden on Angel Island.

    Sonic Adventure – I Don’t Understand the visions from Tikal, did chaos destroy the Echidnas, If so then where did Knuckles come from? Actually the Japanese story of Sonic 3 explains everything. I think that Chaos (yes he is a god) destroyed the Echidnas except Tikal. After Tikal sealed Chaos in the Master Emerald, a god came down from the sky and used the Master Emerald to bing Floating Island into the sky. He then restored Knuckles to the Island (and possibly the tiny animals on the island)
    Skeptic: But the gods legend is just a legend. If this is what you’re thinking then you don’t listen. Not my problem.

    Sonic Adventure 2 – This has been bugging me allot why doesn’t Super Knuckles join in the final fight? Because Super Knuckles can’t fly. He can glide but not fly so he is kind of useless.
    Skeptic: I can’t think of any comeback that comepletely makes sense. (sigh) I love a happy ending. Bye!
