Whatever this is I guess.


According to the comments, it's the title screen music of Sonic Spinball.

Makes sense since that came out on the Mega Drive that year...but I haven't played enough of Spinball to personally vouch for it. Hate that game.

The name is Bivalve. Because that's the name of the taxonomic class.

I've never listened to the Sonic Spinball title screen for more than three seconds, so I guess that would explain why I didn't recognize it.

Someone else's question from another thread: How come the Master Emerald, which is 12 chaos emeralds smashed together, is weaker than the Green Chaos emerald, which is every Mobian Emerald smashed together?

The answer is in the question. The master emerald is weaker because it is 12 emeralds together while the green emerald is every other emerald.

I'm not entirely sure that the Master Emerald is weaker. Don't forget that Sonic was able to use it to activate his Super transformation during Enerjak Reborn.

Most likely the Archie guys are treating the Master Emerald and Chaos Emeralds relation and comparison of their power the same as the games does. In the games 1 Master Emerald equals all 7 Chaos Emeralds. The Master Emerald can trigger a Super Form on its own which takes all seven of the Chaos Emeralds. The Master Emerald also has the power to drain the Chaos Emeralds of their power or enhance their power into the greater Super Emeralds.

In the comics this seems like more of a conundrum as the individual Chaos Emeralds were created from thousands or millions of Chaos Emeralds while the Master Emerald was created from 12. But keep in mind that Feist didn't just combine the emeralds, he actually reshaped them and recreated them entirely, using the already existing emeralds as raw material.

Did anyone actually do this in the games, other than Mecha Sonic in Sonic (3) & Knuckles?

As far as I remember, the bot's the only one.

More specifically, it's this version.

Mecha Sonic had nothing to do with either of those scenarios, but yes, in S3&K, the ME enhanced their power. And then in SA2, the ME (after some chanting from Knuckles) drained their power, so the Ark couldn't use them.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't we told we'd get a comic story focused on Amy's background story this year.

Plans Change.

They did give us a little more information in the encyclopedia, however.
