Meanwhile, in the heart of the deep forest...

Fang was laid down on some woods, and Rouge was next to him, healing his hurt with some strange liquid. Fang's hurt was almost gone, but he still had some scars.

"Trust me tough guy, this medicine never fails. It comes from a healing weed, it can't fail. You'll feel better after some time" Rouge said.

"I am already feelin' better, ya know. But anyway...thanks...for...well, everything. If it wasn't for ya my body'd be toasted in a lava river" Fang said, and chuckled.

"Hehe, you don't have to thank me. It...was a pleasure" Rouge said, blushed.

The bat and the weasel kept looking at themselves. Rouge looked down, but Fang "pulled" Rouge's face up with his finger. They both closed his eyes, and started getting really close to each other. Their lips were about to touch, when they heard a familiar voice:

"What a romantic scene, I must say! How about turning up the heat a little bit down here, eh? Muahahaha!!"

Fang quickly stood up. Rouge remained sit. They saw how a big robotic wall enclosed a rounded area of the forest, and lots of EggDrones came up from the ground. Eggman appeared with his Egg mobile.

"Doc! You again?" Fang said.

"You thought I disappeared, right? Well I'm far from disappeared! EggDrones, take care of them!!" Eggman shouted.

"You stay here Rouge, it's dangerous. I'll take care of this" Fang said.

"But're still damaged. Will you be okay?" Rouge said, crying.

"Of course I will. I'll never leave you, I promise" Fang said.

"But...Fang..." Rouge said.

"*Sigh*...hey sweetheart, if I don't get to speak to you again, I just wanted to say..." Fang said, but he got interrupted by a shot that got next to him.

"Gah, there's no time. Just hide behind those trees, I'll do the rest!" Fang said, and ran away.

Rouge kept looking at Fang, and a couple of tears popped from her eyes.
Before the stage, you will enter the Black Market. There, Omochao will welcome you.

"Hello, Fang, and welcome to the Black Market. I can see you have your Revolver equipped, and your Dual-Machine guns unequipped. You can acquire new Weapons with your rings. Here, let me show you the available list of acquirable Guns." Omochao says.


Grenade Launcher - 450 rings.
Apocalyptic Flail - 1000 rings.

If you have collected 450 rings or more during the previous stages(you may have to go to the Stage Select mode and replay some to be able to gather this quantity) you will be able to buy the Grenade Launcher.

"You have selected the Grenade Launcher. Do you want to buy this Weapon?" Omochao says.

Accept, and Omochao will give you this gun. Fang will grab it, and cock it.

"You have just acquired the Grenade Launcher! This is one of the most powerful weapons out there! You can use this weapon to take out large group of strong enemies, and it is very effective against bosses! But remember, it only has 5 Ammo, so be sure to use it wisely! That's all!" Omochao says.

Since there's nothing else you can buy, quit and move on to the stage...
Stage 16: Death Zone Part II(player: Fang)
Total number of rings: 177

This stage plays exactly like "Death Zone Part I", but it's much tougher, much longer, and there are some differences.

In case you don't remember, this stage takes place on a rounded part created by the robotic walls. You don't move form that rounded place, and all you have to do is blow up the incoming waves of enemies. The rings will appear as time passes over the place, so grab them, but you should save some just in case the enemies get too strong.

This time, there will be twenty rounds instead of ten, and the EggDrones will be very strong. Throughout the first ten rounds, you will find small EggDrones, and as you progress, you will find mildly-strong Drones, and towards the tenth round, you will find really strong robots. For the first ones, you should use the Machine-Guns. For the mild ones, you should try the Missile Launcher, and for the strongest ones, use more Missile Launchers combined with Revolver shots, or if not, use the Grenade Launcher. As usual, it is VERY important to Strafe, so you can avoid enemy fire, and at the same time, fire your own shots.

After the tenth round concludes, a Rouge will send a Land Stalker to the battlefield. Get on it, and get ready to blow some major **** up.

Controls for Land Stalker:

Control Stick-Move.
R-L/C-Stick-Rotate Camera
A Button-Jump.
B Button-Fire machine-gun.
X Button-Dismount
Y Button-Homing laser beams. Hold and aim at enemies to set your targets, and release the X number of Lasers toward the designed enemies. Up to ten targets.
Z Button-Fire a plasma energy ball.

This vehicle is a four feet spider tank with that shoots a machine gun, a homing laser beam and a plasma energy ball. Use it to take out the incoming EggDrones throughout these other ten rounds. For the small ones, use the machine-gun. For the mild ones, use the homing laser beams(remember you can lock onto up to ten targets), and finally, for the strongest ones, use the plasma energy balls(remember you have to wait a while for the plasma energy ball launcher to charge up in order to fire another ball).

After you complete all twenty rounds, the stage will be over.

Fang says "No worries" and fires the machine guns of his Land Stalker as the points accumulate and your rank is given.
Just as the battle ended, a gigantic EggDrone appeared on the battlefield.

"Think you can handle the big guys, bounty hunter? Muahahahahaaa!" Eggman said, and flew off.

"You won't be able to handle...the TRUE Mobians, weasel!" The EggDrone said.

"Hmph, we'll see about that, bling-boy!" Fang said.
Boss: EggDrone Decimus(player: Fang)

This battle takes place on the same rounded plac as the stage.

You fight this robot outside the Land Stalker. This robot is very fast on his feet, way faster than Fang is, so to avoid his strikes, use the side-Strafe jump.

The robot will also fire seeker missile launchers, plasma energy balls with a very wide range, laser beams, machine guns, will make clones of himself that attack you(don't shoot these, just avoid therm,, they will diappear after some time), and punches you.

For this boss, there is no stratey. You just have to shoot him until you deplete his life gauge. Use Missile Launcher, Sniper Rifle, and Grenade Launcher shots at first, and then finish it with Revolver and Dual Machine-Guns. He'll be CONSTANTLY attacking, though, so make sure to use Strafing to avoid his attacks and fire at the same time.

Keep shooting until you deplete his life gauge.

Fang says "Down and over with you!" and blows the smoke out of his Revolver as the points accumulate and your rank is given.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Fang jumped back as the robot exploded and the walls disappeared. Rouge ran over to Fang.

"Fang! Are you okay?" Rouge asked.

"Yeah, just made it. But that robot said something about the Mobians. home world. Again, somethin' fishy's goin' on around, and I bet the good ol' Doc has the answer" Fang said.

"Eggman just headed to the desert, to a Pyramid" Rouge said.

"Awesome, so let's catch up with him!" Fang said, and they ran to the desert.
