A televised message is sent across Mobius. It is “Dr. Robotnik.”
ATTENTION, ALL OF MOBIUS!!!
I have issued a directive that will have all organic beings either imprisoned and roboticized or killed within 24 hours. There is nothing you can do to stop me. My armies are too powerful. Not a single organic being will be left who has not pledged his allegiance the Eggman Empire. Your only hope is to either surrender your weapons and submit yourselves to my service, or else fleet the planet!
Good luck trying to get past my ships!
And Flandre, swing all you want, for every ship you destroy, I have ten more waiting to destroy YOU!
OH HO HO HO HO!!!
Suddenly, on live television, the door leading into the bridge from which Robotnik was broadcasting explodes, revealing a squad of modified Shadowbots.
Shadowbots: By the order of Dr. Robotnik, you are under arrest.
“Eggman”: What do you mean, I AM Dr. Robotnik! Guards! Destroy the defectors!
The Shadowbots destroy the Egg Pawns fairly quickly.
“Eggman”: What is the meaning of this!?
Shadowbots: Dr. Robotnik has given orders for you to be destroyed.
“Eggman”: How can I have given you orders WHEN I’M STANDING RIGHT HERE!?
Shadowbots: You are not Dr. Robotnik. You are an impersonator.
“Eggman”: I ORDER YOU TO STAND DOWN, IMMEDIATELY!!!
Shadowbots: You cannot give orders. You are an imposter. You have no authority.
“Eggman”: ARE YOU INSANE!? DID SNIVELY INSTALL A BUG IN YOU OR SOMETHING!?
Shadowbots: We have been given orders by Dr. Robotnik to arrest the imposter.
Eggman attempts to shut off the television broadcast, but to no avail.
“Eggman”: WHY WON’T THIS STUPID BUTTON WORK!?
Shadowbots: In the name of Dr. Ro-
“Eggman”: SHUT UP!!! I’VE HAD ENOUGH!!!
Eggman destroys the Shadowbots with relative ease, much to the suprise of the rest of the crew. However, the Final Fortress shakes violently, and an all-too-familiar voice floods the bridge.
Robotnik: You didn’t really think you could keep ME imprisoned within my own ship, did you?
The camera pans around to look out the main television monitor, which carried a picture of the Egg Carrier in flight.
“Eggman” barks at the camera.
“Eggman”: Hey, I didn’t order you to do that!
The ship had been partially repaired by Dr. Robotnik, and had launched it’s forward laser cannon at the Final Fortress, which now had a huge, gaping crater in its hull.
Snively praises Dr. Robotnik for his aim. They were both on board the bridge of the Egg Carrier.
Snively: Oh, very good shot, sir!
Robotnik: Thank you, Snively. It felt good to let out all of that rage in one, singular blast.
Snively: I’m sure it did, sir. It made me feel better, too.
The imposter gives the order.
???: ALL SHIPS!!! DESTROY THAT EGG CARRIER!!!
The figure waits for the sound of endless cannon-fire, followed by the sound of an exploding ship, but hears and sees nothing.
???: Are you all deaf!? I ORDERED YOU TO FIRE!!!
Still nothing. All of Eggman’s fleet had been watching the broadcast, and were now confused and unsure of what to do.
The figure yells in rage, and it’s cry bares no resemblance to Eggman’s voice.
???: FINE!!! IF YOU WON’T LISTEN, TO ME, I’LL DESTROY YOU AND THE EGG CARRIER!!!
The figure that once resembled Eggman leaped though the roof of the bridge, and stood atop a large metal pole. The figure had transformed, and it now was a dark shade of blue, with large spikes protruding from the back of its “skull,” and now it bared a strange resemblance to a certain hedgehog which Dr. Robotnik hated so much. Though now, it had glowing, red eyes.
Robotnik: The game’s over… METAL SONIC!!!
((Yes, TARDISES, you were correct. You may gloat now.))
Metal Sonic sticks his hand up, summoning a bolt of lightning which crashed onto the deck of the Flying Fortress, shattering it like porcelain into thousands of tiny pieces, which quickly reformed around Metal Sonic as he transformed into a giant monster…
Metal Madness: FOOLS! NOW IT’S ALL OVER! FOR ALL OF YOU! I’LL DESTROY YOU ALL! ALL OF YOU PATHETIC ORGANISMS WILL DIE!
OOC: If you want to know why Metal has gone insane, he has been corrupted due to contact with the Warpstone Snively had discarded, which Metal has since absorbed, and he is now far more powerful than he ever was.
