Over the past 30 years, Sonic has used the power of the Chaos Emeralds multiple times to transform into Super Sonic, including at Paramount’s sonic the hedgehog 2. Shadow the Hedgehog even got in on the action, but for some reason, Sega never revealed a Super model for Knuckles the Echidna. Knuckles has been closely associated with the Chaos Emeralds and Master Emerald since its introduction, but it’s something we’ve never seen before in games. in New episode of TailsTube video seriesTails asks why Knuckles never tried to use Master Emerald’s power in a similar way.
Tails: “But aren’t you curious about what Master Emerald can do? You have a special relationship with him. Sonic can use Chaos Emeralds to transform into Super Sonic, after all. With your connection to Master Emerald-”
Knuckles: “It’s not my place to use the power of The Emerald. My job is to protect her.”
This moment provides an interesting window into Knuckles’ relationship with Master Emerald! It’s a simple explanation, but it also fits well with his well-established personality. From the start, Knuckles considered his job to protect these items from falling into the wrong hands; The idea of simply using this power was not something that interested him. This is TailsTube’s third video so far, but Sega has done a great job using the series to answer questions fans might have about the Sonic universe.
Interestingly enough, the latest video ends with a teaser for vocal boundaries. After Sonic joins the interview, Tails reveals that his research into the Chaos Emeralds has led him to discover their signals coming from a mysterious group of islands. This causes an image of the Starfall Islands to appear on the screen, and Sonic and Tails decide to look into it. Fans will have to wait until November 8th to see how this investigation turns out!
