Final Story

Last Story continues from where Sonic's storyline left off. Mephiles rises from the ground and launches a beam that impales and kills Sonic. Realizing Sonic's gone, Elise cries, releasing Iblis.

Eggman reveals that Solaris can't be defeated in the present, since it exists in all timelines.

Silver realizes that they can use the Chaos Emeralds to revive him. After a lengthy search, they find the Chaos Emeralds and revive Sonic with Elise's kiss, transforming him into Super Sonic who then expands his power to allow Shadow and Silver to transform into their super forms, and the three hedgehogs defeat Solaris.

Sonic travels with Elise to the birth of the "Flames of Disaster". Realizing that if she puts out the Flames, Solaris will never exist and the two will never meet, though she doesn't want their friendship to end, Sonic convinces her to abandon their meeting. With tears in her eyes and a small smile, Elise gently blows Solaris from existence, thus erasing the whole game's events and happenings. Afterwards, the timeline changes so she is never kidnapped, and never meets Sonic. All the events of the game never happened, and the game ends with Sonic watching the parade in peace.

Non-playable

  • Princess Elise: The 17-year-old Princess of Soleanna who harbors a dangerous secret. Ten years before the game took place, the demon force, Iblis, was sealed away in her body by her father at the age of 7. Her father, in order to protect her, urged her, shortly before his death to remain strong and never let herself cry.
  • Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik: The main villain of the Sonic series, a scientist equipped with legions of robotic minions. Eggman is the main villain in Sonic's story. His primary goal is to conquer the world. He seeks knowledge of the "Flames of Disaster" from Princess Elise, hoping to use them to rule the world and control time in the past, present, and, future.
  • Solaris: The Sun God of Soleanna, Solaris is the primary antagonist and the final boss of the game. Solaris initially existed as a tiny flame known as the Flames of Disaster. The Duke of Soleanna conducted experiments in Solaris, in hopes of controlling his time powers to allow people to travel through time and correct its past sins. However, during the experiments, Solaris became unstable and separated in two entities, Iblis and Mephiles the Dark. He creates his own world to devour time itself.
    • Iblis: The main villain in Silver's story, Iblis is a gigantic creature made of lava that represents the raw power and strength of Solaris. Iblis has the power to continually resurrect itself after being defeated. Originally sealed inside Elise, Iblis was freed a few years later and caused a catastrophe that devastated the world. Silver the Hedgehog and Blaze the Cat continually fought Solaris, until Mephiles the Dark told Silver that Sonic is the Iblis Trigger, the legendary being who freed Iblis.
    • Mephiles the Dark: The main villain of Shadow's story and the evil mastermind behind all the events of the game, Mephiles is the other half of Solaris. Mephiles is a being of pure darkness who represents the conscious mind and will of Solaris. In order to join together with Iblis and return to his true form, Solaris, his goal is to break Elise's seal. He gained his physical forms from absorbing Shadow's shadow after Robotnik accidentally releases him from the Scepter of Darkness. In Silver's story, he is the one who informs Silver that Sonic is the "Iblis Trigger," and that he has to destroy him in order to rectify his future and save his home world.
  • Duke of Soleanna: Elise's father, the late ruler of Soleanna. When the Solaris Project failed, the world-destroying power of Iblis and Mephiles was released. Despite being gravely wounded, he was able to bind Iblis by using his daughter, Elise, as a "vessel" body. By so doing, he was able to save the world from imminent destruction. Before he died, he begged Elise never to cry, as the key to unlocking Iblis is in Elise's tears and despair. Ultimately, thanks to Elise's actions, the Solaris Project never occurred, which could suggest that the Duke of Soleanna may never have died, or may have died from another cause.

Gameplay

Single-player

Although each character plays the same levels, each character's unique abilities allow him or her to get to different areas of each stage, and deny them from accessing certain items.


Gameplay is broken up into two gameplay styles, similar to Sonic Adventure. Action Stages are where the bulk of the gameplay takes place, whereas Town Stages are free-roaming locations where the player can talk to non-player characters and explore, as in Sonic Adventure's Adventure Fields.
