Story One[]

The Chaotix Caper: Part Three of Three - "Picking up the Pieces"

While Charmy is being operated on at the Echidnaopolis hospital, Downtown Ebony Hare and his gang throw Julie-Su off the roof of their building. Hare orders Blackjack to take him to their factory, not realizing that Julie-Su has equipped her gun with a grappling hook. She latches on to a ledge and is forced though the window of an apartment, landing on a sleeping couple's bed. The wife tries to wake her husband, Bimmy, but Julie tells the woman she's just having a strange dream and leaves their home quickly. On her way out of the apartment building, Julie is grabbed from behind by Constable Remington.

Remington leads her out the back, where they knock out a single gang member and miss the rest of the group. They rush to Harry's taxi and demand that he follow Hare's car. Meanwhile, Ebony calls his factory and orders his professor to shut down their operation so they can lie low for a while. At the hospital, Vector stands in the reception area and tunes his walkman to a police frequency. Picking up on where Remington and Julie-Su have headed off to, he rushes over to back them up with Espio and Mighty at his side.

Julie-Su and Remington infiltrate Hare's factory, sneaking past several dingo guards, and watch Ebony talk with the factory's professor from the catwalks. Noticing Harry's taxi nearby, an invisible Espio sneaks in only to find himself being held at gunpoint. After Espio reveals himself, Harry tells them that Julie-Su and Remington went into the nearby factory nearly half an hour ago. The Chaotix head over to lend a hand.

As Hare's gang prepares to shut the factory down, a noise rings out nearby. Blackjack rushes to the noise and Remington tries to knock him out with a wooden plank. He shrugs it off and throws the Constable into a stack of crates. Julie-Su swoops in, distracting Hare from shooting Remington. Hare manages to corner her, but Espio sneaks in and grabs his gun. Julie-Su knocks Ebony out while Mighty deals with Blackjack. Foxy Reynard tries to escape, but Vector stalks the shadows nearby and grabs her. The Echidna Security Team arrives at the scene and arrests the suspects, confiscating the "sauce". They later head back to Happyland Amusement Park and confiscate the remaining "sauce". Renfield the Rodent protests, but Remington reminds him that they could let him keep the stuff and arrest him as an accessory to Hare's crime.

In Haven, Sabre and Locke watch as Knuckles instinctively creates a portal back to the Floating Island. Sabre, fearing that his powers are like Dimitri's were, believes that they need to discuss Knuckles with the Brotherhood. Charmy and his friends arrive at the Golden Hive Colony, carrying Mello's coffin. He is greeted by his father , mother and sister before the funeral begins. After the funeral, Charmy thanks the Chaotix for coming and says his goodbyes to them, explaining that he needs to fulfill his responsibilities. Charmy is crowned prince as he thinks to himself that he's found meaningful in life with his family.


  • Lead Surgeon: " she's saying to me, 'But, doctor, I haven't any credits with which to pay.' So I reply -- 'You must think I was born yesterday. You want a freebie -- you go see the butcher down the street. You want a master surgeon -- you pay to get the best in the business!' There! It looks like the patient is going to make it. You can close up Charmy, Bolland! Now, please excuse me while I calmly go throw up! UNGHH!"
  • Bolland: "Is he always like this during an operation?"
