Meanwhile, back at Horus-Qaa's pyramid...

Jet rejoined with Sonic and Espio.

"I made it, Sonic! I cought up with that guy! He's right-" Jet said, and looked behind him, but there was no one there.

"Hey, he was here just a second ago!" Jet said.

A few seconds after, Rouge and Fang came to the room.

"It's Sonic!!" Rouge said.

"And...the green mate!" Fang said.

"And Espio!" Rouge said.

"What is everyone doin' here?" Fang asked.

"No time to explain, right now we're looking for Horus-Qaa, and I thin-"Sonic said, but he got interrupted by a noise and came from the ceiling:


"What was that?" Jet asked.

"It's him, Horus!" Espio said.

After that, Horus appeared from the ceiling.

"HmmHmm, I say you guys have had enough time to debate my current location, am I right? Now, Sonic, my son...the time has come! You WILL go down!" Horus said.

"Not this time!!" Sonic shouted.

"Thank you for opening the path of life and death, Sonic. That's the last place you'll see!" Horus said, and he closed his eyes, and put his arms up. After a few seconds, all seven Chaos Emeralds came to him and started to spin around him. The coffin opened, and a bright light came out of it.

"Wha...the seven Chaos Emeralds!" Rouge shouted. Horus pointed at Sonic with his hand, and lifted him.


"Now, Sonic, you will die in the hands of your DELIGHTFUL!" Horus said, and he threw Sonic to the path.

"SONIC!!!" Everyone shouted.

"See ya, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG! Muahahahaaaa!" Horus said, and he also entered the path.
Inside the portal...

The place looked like a closed-in tunnel full of lights of diferent colors, that was spinning at an incredible speed. The path was pretty narrow. It looked like a bottle from the inside, only it was spinning very fast, and the walls were full of colors.

Horus entered the place, and saw Sonic about to fall to the "floor". He was unconscious.

"Hahaha, you don't have much time, Sonic" Horus whispered. Suddenly, the seven Chaos Emeralds got off from Horus and they reached Sonic. They lifted him.

"WHAT THE...?!" Horus shouted. Sonic slowly acquired a "standed up" position(they were both hovering in the path). And suddenly, he angrily opened his green, emerald eyes.

"Didn't have that one planned, eh grandpa?" Sonic said.

"How dare you talk to me like that, Sonic the hedgehog!!? You won't survive this round, and when you die, you won't have another friend to save you!!" Horus said, really angrily.

"Shadow died as a hero. And I will avenge his death, and save this planet, by destroying you!!" Sonic said.

"Really? How?! You can't match wits with the likes of ME!!" Horus shouted.

"You know, considering you come from my family, and that you're my ancester, there's one thing you should know: DO NOT MESS WITH SONIC THE HEDGEHOG!" Sonic said, as the emeralds started spinning quicker and quicker around him. Suddenly, they stopped spinning, and disappeared, as Sonic turned into Super Sonic.

"What's this?!" Horus said.

"Oh, it's just another one of my tricks. Still think I'm no match for you?" Super Sonic said.

"Hehehe, let's see what you got" Horus said, and got away really quickly.

"It's now or never, and now it's everything or nothing...LET'S DO IT!!!" Super Sonic said, as he flew after Horus.
Last Stage: Epic Chase(player: Super Sonic)
Total number of rings: 300

This stage takes place in the path of life and death. It looks like it's mentioned above.

Super Sonic flies and accelerates alone(like Jet on his board), and you can use the Control Stick to steer him to any direction. The A Button allows you to jump(you can also do the Homing Attack and the Light Attack), and the B Button allows you to do a boost to speed up for a limited time. Those are his controls.

Horus will be flying ahead of you, and you'll have to catch up him. The "walls" of the path will fire electric beams, that will suck you up to the walls and you'll die if they touch you, and Horus will fire plasma energy balls, that will make you lose your momentum, and thus, making you fall to the walls or floor of the tunnel. As you may have noticed, if you touch the walls, floor, or ceiling of the tunnel, they'll suck you in and you'll die.

Since you're Super Sonic, you'll be invincible. And when before the enemy attacks made you lose time, now they'll make you lose momentum or balance, making you fall to the tunnel's walls. Also, since you're Super Sonic, you'll start with 50 rings, and will slowly lose them as time passes. So, you'll have to collect rings from the path. There will be lines of 5 rings scattered all across the tunnel, but be careful, because the rings are not infinite. There are 300 rings in all in the stage, and if you collect all 300 rings, you'll not be able to collect more, so be careful with this. Always try to reach 50 rings and stay in that number, for you to have rings available until the end of the stage.

As you progress, the walls will close in more and more, thus making the stage more difficult. And this means, they'll throw electric beams at you more often. These are the only attacks the tunnel will provide, but Horus himself will randomly throw three different attacks at you. He'll throw many plasma energy balls, one after the other, at you, he'll throw continous laser beams, and finally, he'll throw a bomb at you that, if it hits you, it'll throw you to the walls(but don't worry, it's not very hard to avoid, although when many attacks fire at you at the same time, the thing may get tougher). I know this stage seems very difficult at first, but it isn't THAT difficult. Well, it IS pretty damn difficult, but it's the last stage, it has to provide some challenge.

Anyway, to win the stage you'll have to catch up with Horus. The stage is not "timed", but in a way it is, because the walls close in as you progress, and if they finish closing in, they'll suck you in them, and you'll lose. Just make sure to avoid as much attacks as possible and use your boosts and you should be able to catch up with him.

Super Sonic starts flying next to Horus, as both look at each other deeply as the points accumulate and your rank is given.
Super Sonic and Horus stopped remained still.

"Ah, I see you're more of a challenge than I expected" Horus said.

"I'm not a challenge Horus, I'm your WORST nightmare!" Super Sonic shouted.

"Hmph, so, you know what I like to do with nightmares? I like to TRAP them in a portal FOREVER! And that's exactly what I'm going to do with you!" Horus said.

"You wish, Pharaoh!" Super Sonic said.

"Actually, it's not just a wish. You see that? *Horus pointed at a white door very close to them* That's the door to DEATH! That's right son, we're at the end of the path. Now I'll show you ALL of my powers, no holding back. The winner takes it all. Be careful, Sonic, if you lose this one, your life will be OVER!" Horus said.

"My life will not be over, Horus. The Earth needs me. Mobius needs me. I won't let them down, Horus. This is my destiny. And to do your best to help this planet was your destiny aswell, but you betrayed it. That's not forgivable. You'll go down!" Super Sonic said.

"HmmHmm, I like your attitude. It's settled then. LET'S PLAY!" Horus said. Super Sonic frowned.
Last Boss: Horus-Qaa the Hedgehog(player: Super Sonic)

This fight takes place on the same tunnel the stage took place in, but you're not advancing, you're standing still, and you can move in any direction with the Control Stick(it's the same as controlling Sonic, but you fly instead of run).

Horus flies around the automatically set fight area, firing plasma machine-gun like shots, plasma energy balls, plasma seeker missiles, plasma bombs that detonate creating a huge explotion range, continuous plasma energy beams, and finally, he strikes at you, and if he reaches you, he'll take out rings from you. Just move to any direction that suits the situation to avoid the attacks he fires, fly away from the explotion-range to avoid the bomb, and keep flying to a side to avoid the continous beams.

Since Super Sonic has no attacks that affect Horus-Qaa, the only way to damage him is to use the power of the Chaos Emeralds, even if that means sacrificing your Super powers, and thus, sacrificing yourself.

What you have to do is use a Light Attack against the plasma energy balls he fires, and that will start filling up a gauge. Once it completely fills up, a hint message will tell you to press the Z Button. Press it, and Sonic will fire an energy beam of the color of one emerald to Horus. This will damage him.

That's about it. You have to do this six times, meaning you'll have to sacrifice all of your power, but the least bit, one Emerald. You'll notice that as you fire the emerald beams, your skin color will progresively grow less and less bright, and you'll find it harder and harder to fly and move.

When you fire four emeralds, your spikes will turn normal again(like Sonic's spikes, the ones turned down), and when you fire five emeralds, your eyes will turn green again. When you fire your sixth emerald at him, your skin will start blinking to blue for an instance before going golden again. (meaning Sonic can't hold his transformation much longer). But, Horus' life gauge will be depleted.

Super Sonic puts his right thomb up(here you can see how his skin blinks changes back and forth, his yellow color is really weak(it's almost disappearing, that's why it changes back to blue), Sonic has his normal spikes, and green eyes), as the points accumulate and your rank is given.
Horus and Sonic were both VERY weak. They were breathing quickly. Sonic's skin was still blinking from yellow to blue, from blue to yellow.

"See? *cough* you will never succeed, Horus" Sonic said.

"Oh, I *coughh* think I will, Sonic...PLY TIME IS OVER!!" Horus shouted, and used his last energies to lift Super Sonic, and throw him at the white door end of the path.

"HAHAHAHAAAAAA" Horus laughed.

Sonic was about to get through the door, but he standed still.

"It is done, Sonic! You'll not make it this time! The Earth will be mine, and the Hedgehog Empire will rise again!" Horus said.

"" Sonic said. Sonic used his last energies to dash over to Horus, and grab him by the neck. He was now in a color between yellow and blue, a yellowy green.

"I think you're the one who's *cough* going down, Horus" Sonic said.

"Wha..wait...this is IMPOSSIBLE! You can't do this!" Horus shouted.

"You think so? Let me show you one thing or two" Sonic said, and Horus quickly replied back.

"WAIT! You CAN'T do this! You CAN'T kill me! That'd leave the path open forever! Can you imagine how many lives you'd kill?!"

"I'm not buyin' it, Horus. You think I haven't *cough* realized? Hm, I come from your dinasty, that means, I AM smart, right? You LIED to all of us!!"


"Oh yes, yes it is. This path was not open because I was alive, this path was open because YOU opened it! All you wanted to do is kill me to raise your succesful empire again, and rule the world under your corrupt commands!!" Sonic said.

"O...kay. I guess you ARE smart, after all. But still, I would not be so sure. Killing me is not a smart decision! Will you kill your ancester? The header of your OWN dinasty? You wouldn't exist WITHOUT ME!!" Horus shouted.

"Someone from the Hedgehog Dinasty can't be fooled that easily, you should know that. You know, after all those years of commanding the Empire, there's another thing you should know:

DO NOT MESS WITH YOUR OWN DESTINY!!!!!" Sonic shouted, and he used the last Emerald's energy to throw Horus through the white wall.

"SOOOOOOOOOOONIC THE HEEEEEEEEEEEDGEHOOOOOOOG!!!" Horus shouted as he got across the white door, and the door closed, and disappeared.

Sonic, without Emeralds, was slowly turning blue again.

"I gotta get outta here before I lose my super form!!" Sonic shouted, and started to fly away...
With this, the credits roll. The credits show a picture of every stage, boss, and cutscene. And at the end, there's a picture of Sonic with his right thumb up, and Sonic saying: "Congratulations, you have completed Sonic the Hedgehog 2: Redemption!" can be heard. After the credits, there is another cutscene.
Sonic(in his normal form again) came out from the coffin, and the coffin exploded.

"SOOOOONIC!!!" Tails and Amy said, who just arrived.

"Hey there Tails!" Sonic said. Amy huged Sonic.

"Oh Sonic, I'm so glad you're okay! I was so worried!" Amy said.

"Heh, hey Amy. I was also worried, trust me on that" Sonic said.

"So I guess Horus is dead now, huh?" Jet said.

"Yep, and as you can see, the coffin exploded, meaning the path of life and death has been sealed...forever. Horus, and everyone else, will now remain dead until the end of our days" Sonic said.

"Nicely done, Sonic. I guess you have some skills!" Fang said.

"Yeah...but I would have never acomplished this without Shadow, who heroically sacrificed his life to help me. I, and everyone, owe our lives to him. He is a TRUE hero" Sonic said. Everyone looked down, sad.

"Sonic..." Tails said.

"What's up?" Sonic said.

"I'm afraid the battle's not over...Espio informed me on the Mobius thing, and I did some research, and it seems the EggBots are completely overruning the planet. We...should go save it" Tails said.

"Yeah, I know. Espio told me about it. If there's one thing I know, is that I'll go save my home world. No thinking about it!" Sonic said.

"Cool. And as you can see, I brought up my spacecraft with me. I already have the coordinates. We can use it to travel to Mobius!" Tails said.

"Awesome thinking, Tails. You guys coming?" Sonic said.

"Of course!!" Amy replied.

"Naw, I got all I need right here, baby" Fang said, looking at Rouge. Rouge blushed. "Hehe"

"Should we get going, baby?" Fang said.

"Sure...thanks for everything, Sonic. And good luck!" Rouge said.

"Yeah, that's right!" Fang said.

"Thanks guys" Sonic said.

As Fang and Rouge were leaving, Fang said: "Just remember, you may wanna shave some parts, me on that". Rouge laughed, and friendly hit him.

"What about you, Espio? Jet?" Sonic said.

"Well, after what you have done, I think you can handle some puny robots. I gotta catch up with the wind!!" Jet said, and flew away.

Sonic looked at Espio.

"You guys should go without me. Trust me, you may find assistance there" Espio said, and walked away.

" set, Tails?" Sonic asked Tails, who was inside the big spacecraft.

"I got it! Coordinates set to MOBIUS!" Tails said.

"Awesome. So...LET'S MOOOOVE!!" Sonic said, as everyone got inside the craft, which flew away to the skies at an incredible speed.
The camera faced the spacecraft flying across space, and then, it zoomed out, showing another smaller spacecraft flying slowly behind Sonic's craft...
