Story One[]

"Southern Crossover" - Part One

Tails is sitting on a dock while he draws a page of his comic, "Tails to Astonish". He's keeping his comic pages with other important papers, doccuments Robotnik dropped after Tails met Auto-Fiona ((StH: #28, #29)). He quickly hides his papers when Princess Sally arrives to chat about Tails' Sea Fox submarine. Feeling that everyone treats him like a child, Tails grumpily sets off in the Sea Fox to have his own adventures.

Elsewhere, Robotnik's supply blimp is fully stocked and ready to go. He explains that he is sending the blimp to aid his global domination ambitions and resupply his new Regional Underboss - Crocbot, and the blimp is cloaked so it can only be seen from below. Not long after, Tails spots it from below while it crosses the ocean. He finds out the blimp's destination (Downunda) before being shot down. Tails recovers and defeats the attacking SWATbots, but Octobot has hidden himself in the Sea Fox and drags Tails down below the water.

In Downunda, Crocbot receives a transmission from Robotnik to confirm his supplies are on their way and sends his pack of Wing Dingoes out to meet it, laughing about how he intends to covert the incoming SWATbots to his cause and overthrow Robotnik. Meanwhile, Tails is surprised to find that not only is he alive and above the water, but he's in the company of a chirpy non-poisonous manta-ray called Ray, who explains how the two tailed freedom fighter was saved by the Forty Fathom Freedom Fighters. Unfortunately for Tails, the Sea Fox was totallyed in the scuffle. Tails complains about how he's stuck on an island in the middle of nowhere. However, it turns out the "island" is Fluke the Blue Whale, who offers to take him to Downunda.


  • Robotnik: "As my old friend Darth would say, 'I find your lack of faith disturbing.'"
