Let's go! Food, water, supplies,
whatever you can find.

Quiet and quick!


Oh, I really gotta start
landing on my feet.


Where am I? Nine?

Nine? Are you out there, buddy?


Heck, I'd even take Knucks at this point.

Is this a city park?

Huh, I wonder
if the Rebels know about this?


My kicks and gloves have a new look.

But why?

Okay, Sonic, think.

It's not like answers
are just gonna fall from the sky...


There you are!

I told you it was too dangerous.

We should make due with what we have.

We got nothing! I'm starving!

We're wasting away up here!

Not anytime soon.

- Ah! Gimme, gimme, gimme!
- Back off!

Unless you got something to trade.

Guys! Can you hear me?

Wait... do you hear something?

It's the trees! They're talkin' to us!

We've already been over this.

Trees don't speak.

Yeah, that's what they want you to think.

Guys! Guys! Where are you?


My berry!


Yep, we're wasting away.

Rebel, Knucks, and... Big?
What are you doing here?

Oh, I'm so glad you're okay.
And where are we?

And any sign of Nine?

And why are you dressed
like cave people exactly?

Now that's new.

He's here for our supplies.

Oh, no!


Oh, so that's what you do. Huh!

What's gotten into you?

Do you have you any idea
what I've just been through?

And then I ran into you guys,
which pretty much brings you up to speed.

No one asked you.

Everyone, just calm down
so I can stop my brain from exploding.


No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!

Now a minute ago we were battling robots
in New Yoke city, right?

Huh? What's a ro-butt?

Hey, hey, hey, wait!
I'm not the bad guy here.

We're friends!

They don't know who I am. Again!

Which means I'm not in New Yoke,
I'm in a whole new place

and you're all-new you's and...

Oh, not again!

So this is another altered green hill.

At least this one has plants.

Yeah... the Boscage maze
has super-sized plants

that are suffocating
the life out of this place.

Thanks to the monster.

Monster? Hmm.

Yeah, it does look extra healthy,
doesn't it?

Extra healthy isn't how I'd put it.

The trees are so big,
they're squeezing us out

and the monster won't let us
touch whatever food is left.

Monsters, overgrown trees, lost shards...

Tricky situation.

There's only one person
who could help me figure this out.

I gotta find...

Tails? Tails!


He's fast.

Fast enough to occupy the monster
while we grab what we need.

- Am I glad to see you!
- The world is all...

You gotta figure out what's going...

Ow! You mangey little...

Hey, give it a rest. He just saved you.

Thanks for your help, stranger.

It's Sonic and you're welcome.

But why didn't he just fly
with all his tails?

Fly? Mangey doesn't fly.

Wait, "Mangey"? Really?

And I'm Prim.


Gnarly. But you already knew that.

Didn't ya? Who sent you?

Look, you all seem like a lovely group,

but I'm trying to find my way back home
and I'm looking for some answers.

Do any of you know
about the paradox prism?

Okay... how about a shiny crystal shard

that may or may not have
some really weird powers.

It's the only clue I have
to getting back home.

A shard? We don't know...

Why you waited so long to ask us about it.

So you know where it is.

- Can you take me to it?
- Of course.

But first come to our village.

I'm sure we can help each other.

We didn't always live in the Canopy.

For years, we lived on the ground,

took everything we needed
from the jungle to survive.

And then, the monster drove us
up into the trees.

Every day in the Boscage maze
is a struggle to survive.

- It's miserable!
- Whoa! Easy!

No need to get angry.

I'm not angry! I'm hungry.

You ever tried filling up on bark?

"Bark"? Don't any of the trees
have fruit or nuts or something?

They used to, but they're tapped out.

That's why we have to forage below,
despite the monster.

We're here.

This is your village?

Hey! Get away from my house.

Your... I mean, it's very rustic.

Ah-ah-ah! Hold that thought.

Sonic, we'll take you to the-the... uh...

- Shard.
- Exactly!

But... first you'll help us
by taking care of the monster

so we can gather supplies.


Oof! These guys really need some help.

Good news, everyone!

Guess which special guest can
handle a so-called monster

without even breaking a sweat?

It's me. It's obviously me.

I'll help you. Berries for all,
as many as you want!

You mean we could have two berries?

That's the loop-de-loop.

You were not kidding about the plants.
They look even bigger from down here.

- Shh!
- Right! Stealth mission.

We need to be very quiet.

The monster could be anywhere.

Hey! I found one!

I guess it's our lucky day.

Whoa! You know, you might wanna
take it easy on the plants.

Why are you on the plants' side?

They've gotten to you.

So much for being quiet.

Shh! Do you wanna get us all k*lled?

- Wait, wha... but, uh, he...
- Shh!


Not you! Go deal with the monster!

Right! I'll deal with the monster.

You go find those berries.

All right, monster, show yourself!

I'm right here. Come and get me!


The berry patch! I found it!

Hey, guys!


Whoa! Okay, so you're pretty quick.

But how quick?


What's back there?

Show yourself, monster!


On second thought,
you're scary enough as is.


This place needs
a monster-sized weed whacker!

I can't h*t the gas.

That's it! Enough running.

Can't fight what I can't see.

But... I've got other senses.

There you go.

You're no monster.

You're just a giant flicky!

You're gonna regret saying that.


You wanna dance? Let's party!

Ha! And stay down!

You can come down now,
I defeated the monster.

That's not the monster.
That's the monster's pet!

Say what now?



Spikes? I hate spikes!


Amy? You're the monster?

Ugh, oh, those guys up above
have really got it...

... wrong.

You hurt my jungle! I hurt you!

Amy, stop! We're friends!
You liked me, to some extent.

Get out!

Maybe not so powerful after all.
Am I right?

And stay out!

First rusty, now this?

Oh, Amy...

I can't smash you.

Ow! Quick recap.

I'm not from around here.

v*olence never solves anything.

And where I'm from, you and I are buds.

So how about you put down your big hammer
and just talk, Amy?

My name is Thorn Rose,

and you are finished!


There you go.

You're free now, little flickies.

What happened here?

You're what happened here.

You and your kind above,
hacked and slashed,

and nearly destroyed it all!

My kind?

You scavengers took everything
the jungle had to offer

and left this.

I'm bringing back nature.
By force, if I have to!

That's right! Mine now!

That glow.

Huh? Yes!

That means there's
gotta be a shard nearby.

Shard? No! I've seen that before.

It looks like the great green.

It's pretty powerful stuff.

Can you help me find this "great green"?

This jungle's been giving me,
uh, a little bit of trouble.

Look, I believe it can
help me get back home

and then I'll be outta your hair.

Fine. I'll help you.

As long as it means
you're out of my jungle.

For good.

You say
the scavengers did all this?

Yes. We all used to live together
in harmony with nature.

But then they got greedy, always taking,

never considering the harm
they were doing to the world around them.

So that's why you
chased them off and went all...

whatever this is.

Hey! I meant it as a compliment.

I mean, this is way less creepy
than the last you I met.

- Last me?
- It's a long story.

If you used to live in harmony
with the others,

why don't you just bring
everybody together

and, you know, work it out?

They deserve to survive too, yeah?

Do you ever stop talking?

Eh, not really.

Don't like this one bit.

- Where is he going with the monster?
- He's betrayed us.


Listen, I get that you and the tree peeps
don't see eye-to-eye on stuff.

But isn't calling them scavengers
a little... dark?

What else would I call them?

I don't know, how about

happy, happy, fun upstairs
people just tryin' to live?

There's nothing fun about destruction.
It's all they know.

How do you make your way
through all these thorns?

This way!

Behold... the great green!

The palm... It's...

Magnificent? Yes.

Now do your thing
and get out of my jungle!

If my kicks are right,
and they always are,

the shard is buried down here.

I found it!

But I can't touch it or I...
you know, poof!


Yeah, it's pretty,
but trust me, this thing is...



I really should have seen that coming.

No! What are you doing? I need that!

As if I would give the heart
of my jungle to a stranger.

You're just another scavenger
like the rest of them.
