Sonic can race faster than the wind and use his fantastic speed to overcome his enemies. Independent and carefree, Sonic never hesitates to charge into danger when the fate of the world is at stake! Sonic enjoys being free and unfettered, and he often travels off to adventure whenever he can. Still, he is always available hen trouble rears its ugly head, and his friends always know they can count on him to do what's right. Sonic can be a little impatient and impulsive, but his confidence is unbreakable, even in the most dire circumstances. After the last battle against Eggman, Sonic decided to search the world for adventure. He has been gone for quite a while by the time Tails contacts him to help rescue Knuckles. In combat, Sonic has low damage power and low armor, but he gets three attacks per round thanks to his amazing quickness. With his speed, Sonic almost always goes first and can damage enemies before they get a chance to react! Tails the Fox Miles "Tails" Prower is Sonic's most faithful and loyal friend. Whenever Sonic is on an adventure, Tails isn't far behind. As smart as Sonic is fast, Tails is an engineering genius, able to invent fantastic machines and outsmart even Eggman. His inventions, including the flying Tornado, have helped Sonic on multiple occasions. Tails can also fly by twirling his two tails like the blades of a helicopter, allowing him to go where Sonic and the team couldn't reach otherwise. Since Sonic left to seek adventure elsewhere, Tails has spent time alone, building new machines and helping Knuckles protect the Chaos Emeralds. As a result, he has become much more independent and confident in his abilities than he was the last time he saw Sonic. Now Tails is almost the field commander of the team, keeping track of their objectives and proposing clever plans that help the team get through difficult situations. In combat, Tails has low damage power and low armor, but he is quick enough to attack twice in each round. Tails relies on his team to protect him while he supports them with his special abilities. Knuckles the Echidna Knuckles is the guardian of the Master Emerald and the last living echidna on Sonic's world. As a result, he is independent and headstrong, through he is also jealous of Sonic's freedom and self-reliant nature. Knuckles has helped Sonic and friends a lot in the past, including taking a major role in the final battle against Eggman some time ago. Knuckles is very strong and powerful, and he will do anything to defend the Master Emerald and protect his friends. While most think Knuckles is a quiet loner, he enjoys helping Sonic, especially when the Master Emerald is threatened. He and Sonic don't always see eye to eye, but Sonic knows he can count on Knuckles to do what is needed to succeed. In addition to his incredible strength, Knuckles has the ability to climb using the claws on his knuckles, and he can glide for short distances. In combat, Knuckles has the second-highest damage power and armor in the game, and he is fast enough to attack twice per round. He is a bruiser with many ways to weaken and defeat an opponent. Amy Rose the Hedgehog Amy Rose the Hedgehog is one of Sonic's most loyal friends. She considers herself Sonic's girlfriend, much to Sonic's dismay. but even if Sonic doesn't like her "like that," she's still a valuable addition to Sonic's team. Amy is generally a very sweet and caring girl, and she is usually optimistic, even when she's not particularly confident. On the other hand, she can be quite aggressive if provoked, and it's sometimes not all that hard to provoke her. All you have to do is threaten or flirt with Sonic, and you can count on getting a giant Piko-Piko Hammer to the head! As a member of Sonic's team, Amy lends both speed and strength to the group, using her innate hedgehog speed and her immensely powerful Piko-Piko Hammer to good effect. She teams up with her friend Big the Cat and her best friend, Cream the Rabbit, to form Team Amy. Since the last time they defeated Eggman, Amy has started a club where she teaches young girls how to protect themselves from bullies. In combat, Amy Rose has the second highest damage power in the game, and medium armor. She is quick enough to attack twice per round, and her special abilities are valuable for weakening enemies and strengthening her teammates. Prof. Gerald Robotnik Prof. Gerald Robotnik was the grandfather of Maria Robotnik and Dr. "Eggman" Robotnik, and the creator of Shadow the Hedgehog. A scientific genius only matched by his psychotic grandson Eggman, Prof. Robotnik originally set out to help the world, not to destroy it. His most remarkable creation was the Space Colony ARK, where he lived and worked with his granddaughter. When the President of the United Stated Federation requested his assistance on a project to discover an "immortality formula," Prof. Robotnik though of his granddaughter Maria, who was suffering from an incurable disease known as Neuro-Immune Deficiency Syndrome. He hoped the research could lead to a cure. Project Shadow used DNA from an alien known as Black Doom to create the Ultimate Life Form: Shadow the Hedgehog. Over time, the nature of the project made the government uneasy, and they considered cutting funding. During this time, the professor also discovered an ancient robot called a Gizoid, which could mimic combat abilities. Robotnik offered the Gizoid to the government as a bribe so he could keep Project Shadow going. Unfortunately, the bribe did not work. Sometime after the completion of Project Shadow, GUN attacked Space Colony ARK and killed Maria, sending Shadow the Hedgehog careening to the earth, presumed dead. When he found out about this, Robotnik was mad. He created a program that would cause the ARK to fall to earth and brainwashed Shadow to carry out the plan, which would require the power of all seven Chaos Emeralds. The plan was foiled, but in his last act before his televised execution, Dr. Robotnik condemned the world to destruction for the fate of Maria Robotnik. Perfect Chaos Perfect Chaos is a powerful and mysterious higher being, which Eggman refers to as the "god of destruction". Perfect Chaos is actually only the most recent form of the being, taken by Chaos after it absorbed the negative energies of all seven Chaos Emeralds. Summoned by Pachacamac's attempt to steal the Master Emerald, Chaos attacked the echidnas and nearly wiped them all out. A peaceful echidna named Tikal, Pachacamac's daughter, soothed Chaos and managed to seal it, along with herself, inside the Master Emerald. The energy surge threw Angel Island into the air, causing it to hover over the land now known as Mystic Ruins. Later, Eggman released Chaos from the Master Emerald to help him in his plans for world domination. While Eggman's plans fell through thanks to Sonic and his friends, Chaos decided to take the Chaos Emeralds for himself. Chaos absorbed the negative energies from the Chaos Emeralds, becoming Perfect Chaos once more. To fight Perfect Chaos, Sonic absorbed the positive energies of the Chaos Emeralds and transformed into Super Sonic to defeat the powerful god. Defeated, Perfect Chaos transformed back into Chaos once more, and Tikal appeared to take Chaos away in a blinding flash of light. Neither Perfect Chaos nor Tikal have been seen since. Chao Chao are small creatures indigenous to Sonic's world. Their origins are mysterious, but anyone who knows where to look and what to look for can find a Chao. The most famous Chao is Cheese, Cream the Rabbit's best friend. As Cream and Cheese show, people in Sonic's world can bond with Chao to gain special powers or boost their abilities. There are a lot of different kinds of Chao in the world, each giving different powers when bonded. All Chaos, however, begin as eggs and must be hatched in a Chao Garden. Chao love to meet other Chao, and interaction with others tends to make them more powerful and even cause them to mate, creating new Chao eggs. Rouge the Bat Rouge the Bat is an enigma. As a spy, a freelance treasure hunter, and a member of Shadow the Hedgehog's Team Dark, Rouge's motivations are always in question. In truth, she's usually just out for herself. Rouge is a confident, fearless, and flirty young woman, the only member of the team who uses her looks to get what she wants. Her carefree and playful attitude is fun for some and annoying to others, but she has been known to set it aside to help Shadow and Team Dark achieve their objectives. She gets along with Sonic well enough, but she always had a sort of rivalry with Amy Rose. There's a sort of unstated connection between Rouge and Knuckles that neither is overly willing to explore. Rouge can fly as quickly as Tails or Knuckles, but not as quickly as Shadow or Sonic can run. She is also skilled at the art of stealth, always on the lookout for gems and other valuable things to make her own. As a spy, Rouge is trained in combat and infiltration, which she uses to help her less stealthy friends. In combat, Rouge has low damage power and low armor, but she gets to attack twice per round, thanks to her innate quickness. Rouge's abilities to weaken and distract foes, along with her skills at stealing items from enemies, make her an asset in combat. Big The Cat One of the strongest and toughest friends Sonic has, Big the Cat definitely lives up to his name! Big the Cat lives in a hut in Mystic Ruins with his best friend, a pet frog named Froggy. He is a fisherman by trade, and he carries his fishing rod wherever he goes. Despite his immense size and powerful strength, Big is humble, gentle, and kind. Some would call him slow or dim-witted, but... well, those people would be right, but behind his slow wit is a heart as big as he is. As a member of Sonic's team, Big is most useful for his toughness, which allows him to withstand dangerous conditions that might be very dangerous for other people. He teams up with his friends Amy Rose and Cream the Rabbit to form Team Amy, and he would do anything to please and protect his friends. In combat, Big has medium damage power, but he has the second highest armor in the game. He's too slow to attack more than once per round, but his powerful abilities make him difficult to damage and even harder to defeat! Cream the Rabbit Cream the Rabbit is a sweet young girl who loves adventure. She can fly by flapping her large ears to life herself off the ground. With her best friend, a bow-tie-wearing Chao named Cheese, she is always willing to join Sonic on his quests to save the world from Eggman. Cream is polite and generally happy, but as the youngest member of Sonic's team, she is also a little naive. While she is always eager to charge off into adventure, she sometimes gets in over her head, and she must rely on Cheese or Sonic and his friends to rescue her. Over the years, she has built a sister-like friendship with Amy Rose, much as Sonic and Tails have become almost like brothers. In fact, she joins Amy and Big the Cat to form Team Amy. She is very caring and innocent, and she even helped Emerl learn about sadness and emotions after his violence made her cry. Cream hates violence, but she has learned to fight so she can help out Sonic and his friends. With Cheese's help, she can stand in battle next to the other characters and cheer them on to fight even harder. Even though she's young, she can still help Sonic save the world! In combat, Cream has low damage power and low armor, and her inexperience means she can only attack once per round. Her cheers are powerful, however, and help her teammates become stronger in battle! Shadow the Hedgehog Shadow was created more than 50 years ago by Prof. Gerald Robotnik to be the ultimate life form. When Eggman freed him from stasis in a GUN base on Prison Island, Shadow agreed to help him take over the world. Shadow once sought revenge for the death of his friend, Maria Robotnik, but Amy Rose helped him realize that Maria's true wish was to save humanity. Soon after Shadow teamed up with Sonic to defeat Eggman, he disappeared and was presumed dead. Rouge the Bat discovered him and he joined her and E-123 Omega to form Team Dark. Whereas Sonic is free-spirited and independent, Shadow is a brooding loner, always serious and a little difficult to get to know. Whereas Sonic will do anything to help save the world, Shadow will stop at nothing to get what he wants or to do what he thinks is best. He tends to see enemies as obstacles rather than actual threats, and anyone who gets in his way becomes his enemy. Still, his friendship with Maria Robotnik showed that Shadow has compassion, and he has formed a close friendship with Rouge and Omega, his Team Dark teammates. Outside of Team Dark, however, he is rarely willing to get close to anyone. In combat, Shadow has medium damage power and medium armor, and he is just as quick as Sonic, giving him three attacks per round! E-123 Omega E-123 Omega is the last of Eggman's E-series robots. Rouge released him when she released Shadow from his stasis pod, at which point Omega, believing the hedgehog to be another one of Eggman's creations, attacked Shadow. Rouge managed to end the fight long enough to find out that Omega was angry at Eggman for imprisoning him in the abandoned base with Shadow. At that moment, Omega joined up with Rouge and Shadow to form Team Dark. Since then, he has longed for a change to take vengeance on Eggman and prove that he is the strongest of Eggman's machines. Omega can be harsh and ruthless, but he does have free will, something that Eggman's robots tend to lack. While he rarely shows emotion beyond hatred and desire for revenge, Omega is capable of feeling loyalty and friendship, as he considered his Team Dark teammates to be friends. Whenever he teams up with Sonic, it's not because he likes Sonic, but because Shadow is part of the team. In combat, Omega has the highest damage power and armor of all characters in the game. He is so slow, however, that he only gets one attack per round. GUN: Guardian Units of Nations The Guardian Units of Nations, or GUN, is a worldwide military and low enforcement organization. Run by a man known simply as the Commander, GUN seeks to protect the world from all sorts of threats, including Eggman and, more recently, the Marauders, now known to be the lost Nocturnus Clan. GUN has vast resources, including an army of soldiers and peacekeepers, fighter planes, and other instruments of warfare. While GUN receives orders from the President of the United Federation, it operates under the sole discretion of the Commander, who has been known to use GUN's resources to bring down enemies. More recently, GUN teams up with Sonic the Hedgehog and his friends to defeat Eggman. GUN employs agents to survey the world for threats. Rouge the Bat is an agent on loan from the President of the Federal Government, but her true loyalties are to herself. The Master Emerald The Master Emerald is older than recorded time, a powerful relic created by the gods as a balance against the power of the Chaos Emeralds. The one who controls the Master Emerald can nullify and control the Chaos Emeralds, making the Master Emerald a very valuable gem. Many people have tried to steal the gem throughout history, and each time, they were thwarted. Recently, the Nocturnus Clan and their chief, Ix, stole the Master Emerald and the seven Chaos Emeralds and took them back to their home in the Twilight Cage. When the Master Emerald was removed from its shrine on Angel Island, the floating mass plummeted to the ground, crash-landing in the middle of the ruins of Eggman's city, Metropolis. Chaos Emeralds Ancient, powerful, and mysterious, the Chaos Emeralds are seven mystical relics tied to the Master Emerald. Each Emerald can float on its own power, but anyone who combines all seven of the Chaos Emeralds can command ultimate power. Many, including Sonic, Knuckles, and Shadow, and others, can even use the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds to transform into Super versions of themselves! No one knows where the Chaos Emeralds came from, but the ancient echidna civilizations knew of them and sought their secrets. Even the Fourth Great Civilization, the mysterious civilization that created Emerl and the Gizoids, experimented with Chaos Emeralds. Until recently, the Chaos Emeralds were locked away in hidden places in Sonic's World. The sinister Nocturnus Clan Echidnas, led by Ix, stole them and took them into the Twilight Cage, an alternate dimension where the clan has been imprisoned, never aging, for thousands of years. Angel Island Angel Island is the home of the Master Emerald, the most powerful relic in Sonic's world, and the Emerald's guardian, Knuckles. The island itself once floated in midair over the land, but with the Master Emerald gone, Angel Island fell into the ruins of Metropolis. Around four thousand years ago, Angel Island was part of the city known as Mystic Ruins. On Angel Island stood a shrine to the Master Emerald and the Chaos Emeralds. Pachacamac, the chief of Knuckles' clan, tried to steal the Chaos Emeralds and angered its guardian spirit, who became Perfect Chaos. This god-like being virtually destroyed Knuckles' clan in revenge. The actions of Perfect Chaos resulted in an energy backlash that ripped Angel Island from the ground, causing it to float above what is now Mystic Ruins. Before Perfect Chaos could do any more damage, Pachacamac's daughter, Tikal, managed to seal it and herself inside the Master Emerald. Over the centuries, the few surviving members of Knuckles' clan became even fewer. Knuckles is, at present, the last of his kind. Shade of the Nocturnus Shade the Echidna was once the leader of the Nocturnus Clan forces sent to collect the Master Emerald for the evil Ix. Now, disgraced and forsaken by her old master, she has pledged to help Sonic and his friends return the Emeralds to their rightful place. Shade is a tough a businesslike woman, the polar opposite of Rouge the Bat. Trained in the arts of stealth and the use of powerful, high-tech weaponry, Shade is a deadly force in combat. As a former denizen of the Twilight Cage, she is very knowledgeable about the races and places in that alternate dimension, and she is willing to help the team by telling them what she knows of Ix's secrets. She is quite impressed with both Sonic and Knuckles, and she fights alongside them to redeem herself for unknowingly contributing to Ix's plans for world domination. In combat, Shade has medium damage power and low armor, and she gets two attacks per round. Shade relies on trickery and technology to win in combat, with her deadly Leech Blade and her powerful Cloaking Device. Eggman Dr. Robotnik (a.k.a. Eggman) was once an evil genius bent on world domination, a career choice that has brought him into conflict with Sonic and his friends many, many times. His first plan involved imprisoning animals inside robots to serve his every whim, but when Sonic thwarted that evil plan, he moved on to bigger, deadlier pursuits. An engineering genius with an IQ of 300, Eggman is a master at building disastrously destructive machines, nigh-impenetrable fortresses, and diabolical robots that could have conquered the world many times over. Thankfully, every time Eggman hatched an evil plan, Sonic and his friends were there to stop him! The newly-reformed Eggman helped the team find a way to enter the Twilight Cage, making friends with Tails in the process. He stayed behind when the team took off to prepare for an impending Nocturnus invasion should the team fail. The Kron The Kron are a race of stone-like beings native to the Kron Colony. They are a powerful and stubborn people, known for their ability to mine precious and rare ore and build sturdy stone and metal structures. The Kron are believed to be the oldest race still living in the Twilight Cage, which gains them no respect from Ix or the Nocturnus. Of all the races in the Twilight Cage, the Kron seem to be the most easy-going and "simple," needing little in the way of sustenance or luxury to survive. Thanks to Sonic and his friends, the Kron are free of Nocturnus rule, and they control their own mines and factories once more. The Kron are governed by Foreman Krag, who is mostly tasked with keeping the miners and factory workers happy. The Kron's soldiers are taken from the ranks of the laborers. They rely on their brute strength more than tactics and training to defend the colony. The Zoah The Zoah are a race of warlike energy giants who live on the Zoah Colony in the Twilight Cage. Bent on conquest and domination, the Zoah seek endlessly to destroy their hated neighbors, the N'rrgal. Zoah society is highly stratified, with a clear division between citizens and non-citizens. While citizens enjoy many rights that non-citizens don't, it seems that anyone can become a Zoah citizen if they can pass the rigorous citizenship test. There's a further division in quality of life between citizens and members of the Zoah Military. The Military are almost the Zoah noble caste and enjoy respect and luxury well beyond anything available to basic citizens. At the top of the chain sits General Raxos and his elite guard. The emphasis on military might and conquest is precisely what made the Zoah attractive to Ix and the Nocturne. Thankfully, Sonic and friends defeated General Raxos in a challenge and convinced him to end his alliance with the Nocturnus, and now the Zoah are turning their military might against Ix. The N'rrgal The N'rrgal are a race of slime-like beings who live on the N'rrgal Colony in the Twilight Cage. Bitter enemies of the Zoah, the N'rrgal are energy-eaters known for their massive numbers and ability to reproduce faster than enemies can destroy them. Visitors to the N'rrgal Colony rarely see anything but the relatively simple and silent N'rrgal workers... until they try to cause trouble. Then some of the workers suddenly become warriors who fight with frightening ruthlessness. Stranger than that are the N'rrgal Swarms, creatures that are the result of many N'rrgal workers combining into one being, and the N'rrgal Queen, a highly intelligent N'rrgal that resembles a gigantic Swarm made up of dozens of combined workers. It seems as though anything that any N'rrgal knows, the Queen also knows, and vice versa, giving evidence of a kind of N'rrgal hive mind. When a N'rrgal worker gets too old, or even too bored of life, he goes to the spawning pools to rejoin the source, at which point two new young N'rrgal emerge, ready to work for the colony. In this way, the N'rrgal reproduce quickly in peacetime, and in wartime, workers volunteer to "spawn" as a service to the Queen. The N'rrgal's ability to absorb energy is their main defense against their enemies, the Zoah. Along with their overwhelming numbers, this ability makes them valuable frontline soldiers in Ix's upcoming war of conquest. Fortunately, Sonic and friends have convinced the N'rrgal to turn against Ix and help in the fight to recover the Master Emerald. The Voxai The Voxai are a race of strange, psychic beings native to the Kron Colony. As a race, they are quiet and hardworking, but their psychic powers make even the Nocturnus Clan fear to tread on their land. The Voxai are all connected, in a way, by a psychic signal that originates from the Voxai Overmind, three very powerful Voxai who act as one in directing the daily operations of the individual Voxai. Most of the time, the Overmind simply suggests to the citizens what they should be doing, offering gentle encouragement to the individual. Should the Overmind flex their power, though, not even the Nocturnus are immune to their mind-controlling abilities. Because of this, crime on the Voxai Colony is nonexistent, and will be as long as the Overmind maintains control. After Sonic the Hedgehog and his friends defeated the Voxai Overmind, the individual named Thebes took over as Overmind and led the Voxai into a new age of peace and serenity. Gizoids Gizoids are ancient robots created four thousand years ago near the end of the Fourth Great Civilization. They were created to be the ultimate military robots, capable of destroying entire armies. Gizoids are powerful, and it appears that Ix and the Nocturnus Clan have created Gizoid Centurions, which are even more powerful versions of the original Gizoid design. Though the Nocturnus Clan uses Gizoids extensively, the most famous Gizoid is Emerl. Discovered just over fifty years ago by Prof. Gerald Robotnik, Emerl was an ancient weapon that could mimic the powers and abilities of things around him. According to Prof. Robotnik's notes, Emerl was responsible for the destruction of the Fourth Great Civilization. Prof. Robotnik programmed Emerl with a "Soul" based on the personality of his granddaughter Maria Robotnik. Unfortunately, Emerl was prone to overload when he absorbed too many abilities, and when he absorbed too many of Robotnik's weapons and machines, he destroyed a large section of the Space Colony ARK, Robotnik's orbital space station. Years later, Eggman found Emerl the Gizoid and gave him a Chaos Emerald as an experiment. Emerl absorbed the Emerald, and Eggman threw him away, angered that he couldn't recover the Emerald. Sonic later found Emerl, and bonded with him right away. Emerl slowly began to develop a personality and became a friend to Sonic and the rest of the team, but Eggman worked hard to capture the Gizoid. When Eggman finally came after him, Emerl went on a rampage, forcing Sonic to destroy him. Defeated, Emerl disappeared in a flash of light, leaving only shards of the Chaos Emeralds behind. Some believe that Emerl is still alive inside the Chaos Emeralds. Imperator Ix of the Nocturnus Arrogant and powerful on a possibly cosmic scale, Ix and the Nocturnus rule the races of the Twilight Cage through ruthlessness and cunning. Each race serves an important part in Ix's plans to return to Sonic's world and take control of the world the Nocturnus once rules. According to Knuckles, Ix may be an ancient echidna chief who rivaled Pachacamac thousands of years ago, and who disappeared with his people soon thereafter. He claims that his people have been imprisoned in the Twilight Cage, an alternate dimension where time does not pass. Ix planned to use the Chaos Emeralds to help bring the Nocturnus Clan back and conquer Sonic's world, but Sonic and friends have begun to recover the Emeralds. Ix still controls the Master Emerald, however, so his plans for escape and world domination can still come to pass. The Fourth Great Civilization The Fourth Great Civilization was an ancient civilization that existed thousands of years ago. Prof. Gerald Robotnik first proposed that it existed; he also believed that Emerl the Gizoid was behind its destruction. Little is known about the Fourth Great Civilization other that they created the Gizoids, and thus Emerl himself, and that Emerl's creation appears to have lead to the destruction of the nation. The Nocturnus Clan The Nocturnus Clan are a nation of echidnas who lived in Sonic's world in ancient times. Led by the powerful chief Ix and bolstered by their highly advanced technology, the Nocturnus Clan very nearly conquered the ancient world. Only the Knuckles Clan, led by the powerful mystic Pachacamac, could stand in their way. The Nocturnus Clan mysteriously disappeared 4000 years ago, just after Pachacamac tapped the Chaos Emeralds and the Knuckles Clan was destroyed by Perfect Chaos. Until recently, only legends survived of the powerful ancient echidna race that once nearly controlled the world, but recent events have revealed that the Nocturnus Clan has existed all along, locked away in an alternate dimension called the Twilight Cage. The Twilight Cage The dimension known as the Twilight Cage has been home to the Nocturnus since their disappearance from Sonic's world 4000 years ago. The Nocturnus Clan leader, Ix, has tried for a long time to find a way out of the Twilight Cage. Part of his plan was to bring all the Chaos Emeralds and the Master Emerald inside the alternate dimension, where he could use their power to escape. The Twilight Cage is home to many strange races, including the Kron, the Zoah, the Voxai, and the N'rrgal. Each race lives on a floating planetoid, or colony, separated by a space-like dimensional void. The Nocturne, the stronghold of the Nocturnus Clan, stands on a colony in the center of the Twilight Cage. The Twilight Cage is further divided by the zones of Sector Scylla and Sector Charyb. The Twilight Cage operates on a different dimensional frequency from Sonic's world, so it can only be entered through the use of warp generators or wormholes. Thankfully, a wormhole to the Twilight Cage requires a level of power that only a relic such as the Master Emerald could generate. @~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~@ @ 4) Copyrights @ @~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~@ The original presentation of this is only allowed to be hosted on GameFAQs.
