Archie Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 151 was the one hundred and fifty-first issue of the main Sonic the Hedgehog comic series.


Story One[]

"Chaos Emeralds are Forever"

Sonic, lying on the ground and dressed up like Anti-Sonic, finds himself surrounded by Patch and the Anti-Freedom Fighters. While they take turns beating him up, Anti-Sonic hooks up with Rouge the Bat back on Mobius, promising to show her where to find the Chaos Emeralds on Angel Island. As they approach, Anti-Sonic clarifies that he's taking her to get a single, big Chaos Emerald - the Master Emerald. They spot Locke heading into the Chaos Chamber and devise a plan of action.

Back in Anti-Mobius, Sonic is tied up and dumped into a raging stream. Sonic somehow manages to escape, having ditched all of Anti-Sonic's outfit. "Patch", actually Antoine D'Coolette, attacks Sonic thinking that he is Anti-Sonic and hoping to find a way back to Mobius. Sonic counters, knocking out Antoine and throwing Anti-Sally and Anti-Bunnie into the stream below. Anti-Tails manages to land a suckerpunch, but Sonic quickly knocks him out and disarms Anti-Rotor, demanding a way back to Mobius.

Back on Angel Island, Anti-Sonic sneaks into the Chaos Chamber while Rouge attempts to seduce Locke. Before he can snag the Master Emerald, Sonic appears, having been transported to Anti-Sonic's location by Anti-Rotor using his Zone-Link Generator. The two Sonics battle, causing Locke to sense that something is wrong in the chamber. Momentarily confused to see two Sonics, he realizes that the Sonic trying to use a large rock as a weapon must be a fake as Sonic refuses to use weapons. Using his Chaos powers, Locke ejects Anti-Sonic from the chamber and helps Sonic up.

Outside, Rouge decides to ditch Anti-Sonic to search for treasures in Downunda. Anti-Sonic stops her, showing her a minor gem he managed to snag, and the two head off to settle some private business. Locke takes Sonic back to Knothole, where he is greeted and kissed by Amy. After he takes her home, Bunnie flirts with him as well. Sonic ends up confused about what Anti-Sonic was doing while he was away.

Story Two[]


On a starry night at Castle Acorn, Sally is awoken by a series of beeping noises coming from NICOLE. As she looks up from her bed, she briefly catches a glimpse of a shadow. Unsure if she's simply weary, Sally asks NICOLE if she detected anything in the area. NICOLE does not respond, her screen blank, and Sally wonders if she's in sleep mode. Sally notices that her door is slightly ajar and, getting dressed, heads out to investigate.

She spots a light shimmering in the distance and arrives at a nearby lake where a Mobian Lynx is basking in the moonlight. The lynx turns around, startled, and reveals that she is Nicole. Sally assumes that it must be a hologram until she reaches out for Nicole's arm, which she is able to grasp. Nicole explains that, ever since they temporarily switched bodies, she has been working on this simulation. She tells Sally that she realized that, despite her sentience, she had never truly experienced the ability to feel things or experience true emotion.

Sally pleads for Nicole to try and keep this form, hoping that she could be a valuable asset to the Freedom Fighters. Nicole wearily states that this form drains her energy and leaves her files insecure. She relates to her friend that she chose a night where all the Freedom Fighters were gathered in Knothole to gaze at the stars, wanting to take in their beauty for the first time without fear of an attack from Dr. Eggman. Sally doesn't want her to leave, but Nicole explains that she'll always be with her and their friendship won't change. As Nicole's physical form fades away, Sally gains a new appreciation of her life and the beauty of the world around her.


  • Rouge: "I've been alone most of my life -- with no one to turn to!"
  • Locke: "While I can relate -- I'm not sure I understand what you want!"

  • Sally: After Nicole faded away I continued to lay there, looking at the stars. I thought about what Nicole said and I felt ashamed to realize that...I, too, was seeing the stars for the first time.

Key Events[]

  • Sonic returns to Mobius and is saved by Locke.
