He would have given a victory speech had he not been jumped from behind by Shadow, the black hedgehog shouting, "Cream, I'll hold him, you punch". The orange ball of cuteness leapt to her feet and leapt into the melee feet first, almost winding Sonic as she landed squarely on his belly. He fought to stand up as Shadow grappled him and Cream gently tapped the side of his face, giving the count as he rocked from the impacts as though hit with torpedoes, "One, two, three, four…" Amy watched the three of them wrestle and her shoulders shook as she tried not to laugh; the two hedgehogs were giving a theatrical performance and Cream was joining in with a will; she jumped at Shadow and tried to tackle him to the floor as he reached down for her.
Knuckles hopped back out of range of Rouge's kicks, landing with hands on knees and breathing heavily. The bat went to one knee, looking at her sparring partner with respect; neither of them held back when sparring and it was only due to their respective skills in martial arts that neither had been seriously hurt. She dropped her head, missing the impact her words had on the echidna; he flashed a glance, a single glance, which held within it his innermost desire and his innermost fear at the Mobian at the centre of both.
He shook his head as he returned to re-oxygenating his body, moving slowly into a secondary routine of stretches that would prevent his body cramping up painfully. Rouge did likewise, though her routine was a little more flamboyant than the echidnas', culminating in a full stretch horizontal split.
It was towards the end of this that a low growl pervaded the air and Knuckles winced a little; he hadn't yet had breakfast. Knuckles extended his hand as he stretched the side of his body close to her; she smirked as she threw the bottle towards his lent over form and he caught it effortlessly one handed, "Show-off"; keep him talking, just a mouthful and you're mine boy!
Knuckles gawped at her as he popped the top off the bottle. His arms felt like tree trunks but he lifted them anyway, stumbling towards his enemy as she wiggled her fingers at him.
Her mocking face and the words, "Night, night Knucklehead" were the last things he remembered hearing. The sleeping powder she'd put into the water had done its job well; it went in and knocked you out for about an hour, then stopped with a minimum if side effects.
Knuckles was swaying like a drunk after a heavy night on the tiles as he advanced; by the time he collapsed into her he was already snoring away merrily. Rouge set him down as she recovered her fallen bag and, as an afterthought, Knuckles' phone, though she switched it off before adding it to her possessions.
Phase one was complete, the rest should be easy if she moved fast; he hadn't taken much of the drug so it would wear off fairly soon and she wanted him secure by then. As she gathered the fallen guardian in her arms and remembered the direction she needed to go, the thought of looks like Seraph taught both of us something made the spy laugh out loud. Sonic took a last slurp of the orange juice Amy had provided to the playmates as they finished their wrestling match, Cream having been crowned the victor.
Sonic and Shadow had been fighting each other so hard they'd almost forgotten the rabbit until she'd caught them both with a double crab and forced them to tap out. As a reward Cream had been given ice in her juice, something both hedgehogs were looking mutinous about. Unfortunately the pink hedgehog remained resolute; wagging a finger at the pair of them she began, "No way; Cream won that one so she gets ice.
Besides there's none left now".
As she spoke she wasn't aware of movement behind her, or the fact the two hedgehogs were distracting her, until it was too late. Grinning, Cream pulled the back of her dress collar and yelled, "Bombs away", dropping the dripping ice cube down the back of Amy's red dress. Cream and the others watched as she continued her mad dance, offering casual criticism, "What style do you think it is; break dance?
Cream herself giggled as she offered her own advice, "Well it's certainly not ballet, but", she finished as the rose hedgehog stopped hopping like a frog on a hot plate and advanced in her direction, "this performance is over". Cream took to the air, leaping back out the way just before Amy could reach her. Her squad mate simply flew up higher, away from the source of danger as she stuck her tongue out, "Na, I think I'm safe up here and I was only being nice", Cream hovered overhead, just out of range of Amy's swings, "you gave me some ice so I returned the favour".
Sonic and Shadow chuckled while Amy steamed and thrust the hammer away, scowling.

A few minutes later the two super speed hedgehogs held a rucksack over each shoulder and decided the best way to approach things was for them to run the luggage to Tails, then run back and grab the girls.
Tightening his bags the blue hedgehog nodded and took his mark. When the grit and debris had settled she turned to Amy; the pink hedgehog straightened her dress before sitting down on the grass. Cream totted the total up in her head before shrugging and looking at her watch as she sat next to her friend. Another person with her eye on the time was Rouge; she was flying over Angel Island with Knuckles still asleep in her arms.
She was beginning to pant for air as the fight exhausted her; she had carried Shadow and Omega before now, but not like this; because Knuckles was asleep he couldn't grip her arms so she was having to cradle the echidna to prevent him slipping from her grasp. Holding a weight as heavy as that in an uncomfortable position like this was murder on her arms and shoulders, never mind her poor wings, but she was close now; she recognised the landmarks as correct and put on a burst of speed, drowning out the ache in her body with the knowledge that she was nearly done and soon Knuckles would regret ever putting that snare in Mushroom Grove.
Cream slid onto black hedgehog's back in a piggy-back with a gleeful shout of joy; she loved running with either Shadow or Sonic because of the way the wind whipped her ears backwards; it made it look like a pair of banners had been attached to her head but felt like she was travelling in a racing car with the roof removed.
That, of course, was not true — the car hadn't yet been made that could match either of the hedgehogs for speed. At Amy's shout, both took off and the rabbit shut her eyes against the G-force, hugging herself in tight to Shadow's back to lessen wind resistance; she knew the black hedgehog took his races with Sonic very seriously indeed and she had to do everything in her power to help him win. Tails revved the Tornado in its jeep mode, the fox expertly working the controls to pull out of the garage of his workshop, the vehicle he had built with his own two hands growling like a tame tiger as it responded to his deft steering.
When he was clear, he hit a button on the dashboard that locked the garage door behind him and, after double-checking he had enough room for safety, he took a deep breath and hit a second button, this one green and marked with a small, black airplane design. The reaction was instantaneous; the jeep began to ripple and morph under him, the movements and assorted sounds from under the foxboy genius's seat as familiar as the back of his hand.
Slowly the Tornado re-emerged into its plane mode and Tails popped open the cockpit, expertly scrambling down the side of the aircraft as he headed for the ground, his twin tails providing an emergency parachute should he slip. Just load the bags on and get ready; they should be here soon; the kit hefted the twin black and steel blue bags he recognised as belonging to his brother and his flat mate and headed up the narrow boarding ramp, the pair of rucksacks hindering his progress a little but not stopping it outright.
Quickly securing the two smaller bags in one of the seats, Tails descended again and seized the pink bag that must have belonged to Amy; the designs of a pair of roses on the bag flap a definite giveaway. Tails tugged on the bag and gave a slight yip at the sudden pain in his shoulders; that must have weighed a tonne.
Think I'll leave that one; he turned to the last bag and timidly prodded it; ah good, this one didn't seem to be super-glued to the deck. As he slipped it over his shoulders Tails gave a slight smile — this was Cream's bag and had been packed by Vanilla; he could smell the mingled scents of both rabbits with his keen nose.
Just as he disappeared into the passenger area of the jet mode, twin plumes of dust were seen on the horizon as the most recent race between Sonic and Shadow approached a conclusion. Amy decided to end this repetitive argument before it could truly get off the ground; something they wouldn't do if the two hedgehogs didn't stop quibbling about who was the fasting thing alive.
Shadow looked at her wounded as though he'd been counting on her support to finally chalk up a win on his friend and rival; she kept her face neutral and innocent through ease of long practice until the black hedgehog shook his head and sighed, "Okay, no-one won then, but just wait until we're on Angel Island; I'll show you the meaning of speed Sonic".
Luckily Tails appeared in the frame of the Tornado's passenger compartment and waved, stopping Sonic from launching a witty comeback and starting the whole cycle again. Amy put her hands on her hips, "No way Cream, you lost the bet so you face the consequences". They are never going to let me live this down; Tails felt the skin of his muzzle begin to heat up as three curious glances flicked his way, each containing a hefty dose of mild indignation and cheek.
The fox tried to squirm clear, knowing it was probably a wasted effort but going for it just on the off-chance. I hate you all; I'm installing elevator music in the passenger seating — that and hundred other dire thoughts swirled round Tails' head as he watched the three hedgehogs stifle laughter at his predicament.
He knew Sonic had yet to forgive him fully after publicly ridiculing him by revealing his middle name but this was a cheap way of getting revenge. The fox secured his property as the three hedgehogs complied with his orders, Sonic especially having trouble not sniggering.
Cream shook her head at Tails' odd behaviour; she and the others made fun of Sonic and Amy's 'relationship'; this was just the three older teens having a joke about nothing, wasn't it? Still, that was a low shot by Sonic and she had just the thing to cheer the down-in-the-dumps fox up.
Cream masked a smile and then grinned, "Well, don't worry; you know what they say; he who laughs last laughs loudest", she leaned forwards conspiringly, "let's show them how much I've learned". Tails licked his lips, then nodded and returned the rabbit's mischievous grin.
Made it; Rouge saw the familiar squat shape of Knuckles' cabin in the distance, the blocky wooden construction providing a welcome sight for her tired and aching body. Her predicament wasn't helped by the fact that Knuckles was unconsciously moving in his sleep, threatening to fall out her arms onto the hard ground below. This increased risk of slipping forced the bat to fly slower and lower to the ground, a fact her arms and wings were giving her severe grief about as she struggled home.
As she landed at the back of the cabin she let out a low groan of relief, tucking her pounding wings away and setting the comatose guardian down to stretch her cramping arms. This pause was only momentary, however, as Rouge was aware that Knuckles was beginning to show signs of throwing the effects of the drug off, kicking and moaning more violently as he began to recover consciousness.
Swiftly throwing him over one shoulder, Rouge sprinted into the building itself, reaching into her bag for the things she needed next, a wicked smile on her lips as she realised soon she'd make the guardian rue the day he'd set traps for her.
All three passengers looked up in mingled shock and alarm before Shadow asked the awkward question that just begged to be asked. The Tornado's engine powered up and all three hedgehogs rapidly buckled in, fear and apprehension etched in every face. The transforming vehicle began to leave the ground with three hedgehogs praying that Cream's first flight wouldn't prove to be their last. There was something soft underneath him and he couldn't feel any hint of a breeze; where was he?
He was probably indoors, but he hadn't slept in his cabin last night; he never did unless it looked like it would rain during the night. Knuckles blinked his eyes open as he tried to rub an itch on his nose only to find he couldn't move his arms, they were being held in place. Leaning his head upwards, the echidna realised there was a very good reason why he couldn't move his arms, or his legs for that matter; all his limbs had been tied to one of his bedposts with thick, soft cord.
The echidna snarled as fury stoked the furnace of his heart; all this time, all that talk and she'd just turned around and plunged a dagger in his back. He threw himself against his restraints, trying to free himself as his imagination pictured the spy making off with the Master Emerald, his slip causing the island to start plunging into the ocean, if it wasn't already there.
Reining his anger in, the echidna breathed steadily for a few minutes, trying to use his innate connection to the emerald to see if it had been touched since he'd been under.
The relief that poured out of him as he realised the power at the centre of Angel Island stood there still and was safe, for the moment at least, was very nearly tangible; he hadn't been punished for his mistake, at least not yet.
Quickly testing his bonds, the guardian snarled as he realised he wasn't going anywhere fast; Rouge had done a professional job on this. Settling down for a second, the logical, ration part of Knuckles' mind was already pointing out something wasn't right here.
As far as he could remember, they'd been sparring outside the shrine itself, he'd taken a sip of the drink she'd offered, then he must have gone under; the lemony taste of the water must have been some kind of sleeping draught. Right, that explained how he'd been tricked but, if the spy had been after the Master, why bring him here?
It was a fair step from the shrine to his home, even in the air; surely she would have tied him at the shrine and left him there. She also promised she wasn't after it as well, she wouldn't go back on a swear like that; though he'd be the first to say the bat wasn't honest, the echidna couldn't believe Rouge would go back on her word like that. What was…as he heard a creak by the foot of his bed and looked up, he realised he'd soon get answers if he wanted them or not.
Please Lord, let me survive this trip and I'll never ask for anything again as long as I live. To say Sonic Hedgehog was a little nervous would be the world's greatest understatement; they'd been in the air less than ten minutes and already they'd hit turbulence that should have belonged in a hurricane, Cream accidentally cutting off power to the engines and sending them into a downwards spin and a running commentary from the front seats that sounded like Tails was having to perform a modern-day miracle just to keep them in the air.
Glancing along the blue hedgehog felt slightly mollified as he realised he wasn't the only one going through this nerve-jangling hell. Shadow, who was sat opposite and slightly to the side of him, was slumped in his seat, breathing rhythmically with his eyes tightly shut and Amy was gripping onto her seat belt as though trying to throttle it.
Swallowing nervously, the blue hedgehog dared to query, "Do you think that's the worst of it? Tails noticed the look on the rabbit's face and breathed out the corner of his mouth, "Don't laugh; you'll give the game away".
Cream clapped her hands over her mouth as she fought the giggles down; this plan was going perfectly and then some. Tails suddenly straightened in his seat and from the look on his face she could see he was onto something big. Turning to her, the fox mouthed three words that sent a thrill up her spine; she grinned and gave a thumbs-up as the two younger Mobians prepared their nastiest surprise yet.
Just as Shadow began to relax and feel the tension ease from his whipcord taut body, a sudden burst of noise from the front filled him with dread. Shouts of alarm from the passengers filled the interior of the Tornado as the machine completed a full loop in the air were answered with an ecstatic cry of, "Wahey, loop-de-loop!
He was backed up voraciously by shouts from his friends; if the fox didn't take over soon they'd all go grey and fall over dead from heart attacks. He expected compliance, he expected a sincere apology and offers of reparations; what he didn't expect was a sudden outburst of laughter from the front seats. Amy sprang up as she saw in her mind what the devious pair had been doing; the urge to hammer down the door that adjoined the passenger seating and cockpit was almost irresistible.
At first it failed to sink in; Tails and Cream would never, ever play a trick as evil, as cruel, as that, never in a million ears, right? Tails concentrated on the task of flying as Cream straightened her ears out again; though tricks like loop-de-loops were fun, they always made her ears fall out of place and it was a pain to sort them out again.
Tails shook with his free hand, smiling all the while, "Pleasure acting with you Cream". There was a second of silence before Sonic's voice boomed over the speaker.
The two dropped their hands and shared a joint shrug; Cream put her hands on her head and Tails wrenched the control stick hard to the right, listening to the sudden shrieks from behind them.
He had left her to stew in worry and doubt not so long ago in the Mushroom Grove, now she was going to repay the favour and, she admitted privately, enjoy herself at his expense as an added bonus. He put on a sarcastic face and looked upwards as though asking for patience, "I would argue otherwise", he said caustically, trying to move his immobilised arms as if to underline his point, "what do you want Rouge; you're not after the Master Emerald are you?
That doesn't sound good — okay, I'm worried; Knuckles tried to make sense of the bat's words but before he could ask she had carried on talking, "This is about revenge; when I'm through with you, you'll wish you'd left me hanging around in Mushroom Grove! He was pretty much helpless now and from the wicked gleam in the bat's eyes he reckoned he was officially 'in trouble'.
He moved onto delaying tactics, "Nice move", he commented as though bored, "how long did it take you to think it up? Okay, brace for impact; Knuckle was smart enough to know he'd not talk her out of this so decided on option two.
Now it'd be churlish of me not to repay the favour so I decided to go for it in full.
Sonic the Hedgehog!
I reckon you'll look good with bleached dreads". Knuckles' face fell into a look of pure horror as he imagined…no, that was inhumane; he made to argue only to see a camera flash in front of him.
The bat replaced the camera and smirked; he was in the palm of her hand and she was going to make him squirm and plead through every minute of this.
She'd hung the bag on the other side of the bed to where she was sat; she leant one hand on Knuckles' gut to stretch for it, barely registering the contact. It was only when her hand slipped that she paused in her attempt. Oh man, oh man, oh man, I'm doomed Knuckles thought in a panic, trying to think of something, anything that might just help him in his current predicament at the same time as ignore the small hand resting on his stomach, reasoning won't work; she's steamed I caught her in that trap, oh why didn't I just …hey, cut that out!
Rouge stopped suddenly as her hand moved minutely and the skin it was resting on fluttered in response, her mind weighing something up in a second.
Acting like she'd failed to reach her bag, she tried again, this time keeping one eye on the echidna's reaction as she 'slipped' again. Oh boy, this is getting better and better; Knuckles squirmed away from the touch and the merest ghost of a smile tugged the corners of his mouth. The bat pushed off of him, a truly evil grin now flourishing on her pretty face as she decided on a different course of revenge. Knuckles tried to cover up but deep in his lilac eyes, Rouge saw he had an inkling of her discovery and was afraid of it.
During the fight, Mister Tanaka attempted to protect the Thorndykes by having Weazo face him, but the robot swatted him aside easily, much to Knuckles' confusion. When Sonic found himself trapped by Weazo against a large water tank, Knuckles had him jump to safety as he broke the glass open, causing the water to spill out and extinguish Weazo's flamethrower and short-circuit it, allowing Sonic to finish the job.
Though Eggman escaped with the Emerald, Sonic and Knuckles put it aside to help celebrate the Thorndykes' wedding anniversary. After Sonic fell and resumed running, Knuckles tried to stop him, but could not. When Chuck Thorndyke got another idea, Knuckles assisted in setting up the trap to subdue Sonic, but when the trap could not contain Sonic and his running for an extended period, it fails, and Knuckles ends up being crushed by the trap.
Though Eggman apparently agreed to help, when Knuckles and Chris brought him the five Chaos Emeralds they had collected, Eggman got word from E Lucky that Lucky found the seventh one. Knuckles soon broke into the cockpit to confront Eggman and demand Chris and the Chaos Emeralds back, but Rouge had already snatched them in the confusion, only for Chris to struggle and make her drop the Emeralds, before both of them were grabbed by the still out-of-control Eggsterminator.
Knuckles could only watch helplessly, before Sonic reappeared, now having been transformed into Super Sonic by the Chaos Emeralds, and fought off the Eggsterminator. Super Sonic told Knuckles that his wish of going home to Angel Island was about to come true, but then told him to stay back, as Super Sonic tore the Eggsterminator apart in seconds, before unleashing a Chaos Control that brought the Mystic Ruins and Angel Island to Earth. However, one night, six months later, he was awoken by the sound of the Master Emerald being shattered, revealing a being of pure liquid standing in front of the gem's remains.
Thinking the creature was responsible, Knuckles tried to attack it, but the creature knocked him away before disappearing. Worse, without the Master Emerald's energy to keep it aloft, Angel Island descended into the water next to the Mystic Ruins. After transforming Chaos into Chaos 2 with two of the Chaos Emeralds, Eggman watched as Sonic and Knuckles fought their hardest against Chaos, and were able to emerge victorious, forcing him to collect Chaos and retreat.
When Knuckles learned it could be a shard of the Master Emerald, the officers lead him inside to where the object landed. Knuckles saw it was indeed a Master Emerald shard, but when he picked it up, he had another vision of the Altar of the Emeralds in the past, where he saw the source of the voice he heard previously: Tikaland her father Pachacamac. When the vision ended, the officers agreed to let Knuckles keep the shard, and promised to let him know if they found any more.
Reappearing at the Altar of the Emeralds, he rebuilt the Master Emerald with the shards he had found, only to see it was still incomplete. At that point, the Master Emerald showed Knuckles an image of the Egg Carrier, as if hinting that the last of its shards were there. Knuckles was able to get a ride up there on the X Tornado with Sonic and Tails, who then revealed the X Tornado's new configuration, Battle Armor Mode, which allowed them to get a clear shot at landing on the Egg Carrier, before Tails realized that Battle Armor Mode had no landing gear, leading to a crash landing.
After Eggman got lifted away by Decoe and Bocoe to plan his revenge on Chaos, Knuckles and Sonic were shown a final vision of the Altar of the Emeralds in the past, where they saw Chaos unleash its anger on Pachacamac and his warriors, along with Tikal pleading with the Master Emerald to stop Chaos, before being returned to the present.
Chris then appeared with the last Chaos Emerald, only to be grabbed by Chaos. It is shown in Sonic Generations that Rouge can be referred to a temptress, due to her flirtatious and selfish ways. Her carefree and playful attitude can be fun to other characters, like Sonic, or even annoying for others  like Knuckles. She has a lot of pride and will fight dirty when facing a formidable opponent, such as Knuckles when it comes to strength; hindering his sight in a dark tent or Tails when it comes to flight; intoxicating him with a kiss.
She can also be a bit of a hypocrite, especially in regards to thefts. This is especially evident when, after witnessing the Master Emerald being stolen, she refers to the one stealing it as a thief despite the fact that she herself had stolen it from Knuckles earlier, something the red echidna even noted by saying "Look who's calling who a thief", and in Grand Metropolis stage when she calls robots energy thieves.
Rouge is also at times a government spy who works for her own good. Rouge has a great obsession for jewels or even anything else that shines or glitters. She has been known to seduce people with her attractiveness to get what she wants such as kissing Tails in Sonic Battle and Sonic X. However, she has, on many occasions, shown she can be heroic, possess loyalty, care about others, or, at least, have some degree of morality.
In the final events of Sonic Adventure 2she helped save the planet.
- Knuckles the Echidna
- Rouge the Bat
- Who does Rouge like more? Knuckles or Shadow?
In Sonic Heroesshe jumped between Shadow and Omega 's fight as the mediator. In Sonic Battle, when Shadow was injured and needed a place to stay, Rouge helped him. In Shadow the Hedgehogshe did other laudable things, such as rescuing a Chaos Emerald from the doomed mainframe, destroying the evil monster Black Bulland assisting Shadow in defeating Black Doom as well as showing concern for his welfare at the end of the game.
She also isn't fond of hearing Omega constantly talking about vengeance. Recently, she has been seen less selfish, as can be seen by her actions towards Shadow in Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Rivals. However, as shown in her portrayal in Sonic Free Riderswhich depicts her as very cold and callous from her desire for the cash prize, suggesting she still possesses her interest in jewels and riches.
This is proved as she couldn't care less that her robot team member broke down and even went on to insult it as well. Powers and abilities Physical abilities Rouge possesses enormous physical strength that rivals that of Knuckles the Echidna 's. However, whereas Knuckles' strength lies in his upper body, Rouge's lies in her lower body, particularly in her legs and feet, giving her enormous kicking power.
With her kicks, she can shatter boulders, slice through metal, or even leave dents in thick steel walls.
