1. You look at people who walk by and start mentally labeling them by what special infected they're likely to be. "Hunter, Hunter, Smoker,...ooh a Spitter!"
2. You see a girl on her knees, her hair in her face, making sounds and you have you literally use all of your strength not to point and shout "Witch!" because no one would get it.
3. You play the music files and get twitchy when you reach the Tank one.
4. You wish you could hack into a store's music system and play said Tank music, shouting out "Taaaaank!" to see how many people would react.
5. You look at medkits in your sporting goods/camping store, hoping to find one that looks like the in-game one.
6. You own several bottles of Target brand Ibuprofen just because of the label.

"You think a second round can even hope to make a difference?" Stargazer asked before Sonic ground his fist into his stomach. Stargazer felt the blood trickle out of his mouth before he completely threw some up to the side.
"I think it'll be enough to defeat you" Sonic said with a smirk before removing his hand and slugging Stargazer in the face. Stargazer reeled back, clutching his face with one hand and his stomach with the other.
Twilight helped Luna to her hooves getting her out of the crater she was still in. She looked up to see Sonic deliver those hits to Stargazer. A smile to her face that she seemed unsure to have.
"What's wrong?" Twilight asked
"Stargazer won't be this easy to beat, he can just replenish his energy." She said
"There must be something we can do" Twilight said, wanting this to end already.

Metal's eye panels slowly began to light up as his system came back online. The first thing he noticed was the fact he was indoors, and on a bed no less. the wood paneling of the walls, roof and floor of the room a pleasant brown color. He began to sit up, his gears grinding and hydraulics hissing as they finally began to move again. He looked over to a window on the other side of the room and got out of bed, heading toward it slowly. When he looked out he saw many griffins flying around, this confirmed his suspicions. Gilda must have brought him there while he was in standby mode. He could see a lot of gorges and canyons, as well as mountains. This place was certainly like he'd imagined.
"nice to see you up and about" Gilda said from behind him, having just entered the room. He turned his head, looking at her through the corner of his eye before returning his gaze to the outside.

Knuckles looked around as the flower began to lose altitude, noticing that they were flying above a swampy part of the jungle. As he glanced around, Sweetie Belle spoke up, "Um, are we going to be landing soon? I'm feeling a little nervous right now."
Cream looked down at her and said, "Don't worry, Sweetie Belle. I'm sure there's some solid ground here in the jungle. It won't be long now." Cheese chirped in agreement.
The rabbit, Chao, and Crusaders looked up as Knuckles spoke, "Hey, look! It might not be very safe, but there's a spot where we can land." They followed his gaze to see part of a green path above the swamp water. They had to agree; it was better than nothing. Knuckles looked up at the flower, saying, "I don't know if this thing is going to be able to make it over there, though." He looked down at Cream and asked, "Cream, if I let you go, do you think you can fly the rest of the way? I'd offer to let you ride on my ba

The ponies stared, aghast at what they were seeing, but no one was more surprised than Sonic was. He’d only taken that form once, empowered by an alternate world’s source of the very emotions the hedgehog had mentioned, and now he was seeing it separate from his body. “Dark… spine?!” he gasped.
Discord popped up at the edge of the street, positioned right behind Sonic with his eagle talon gripping the street and his lion paw on his chin as he too stared at this new sight. “Hmm… not quite what I expected to happen, but that certainly makes it chaotic in its own way,” he mused. He then grinned down at Sonic as he and the ponies turned their heads to look up at him, “It’ll make for an amusing spectacle to see you beat yourself up over who’s the better hedgehog!”
Darkspine Sonic, meanwhile, looked in the direction of Super Sonic and, after a moment, pointed in his direction and said in a loud, angry (though still gho

Metal Sonic blasted a Starblazer before turning to another and blasting it. Gilda used her ability to fly to her advantage to attack. Mephiles just fired dark balls to keep them at bay.
"How many of these things are there?" Gilda asked, starting to get tired.
"Too many" Mephiles said as he blasted another. The Starblazers began to gather together, forming multiple Red Giants.
"You've got to be kidding" Gilda said as the behemoths made their way to them.
Celestia stood with her royal guard and Luna's as well to quell the Starblazers. Their numbers didn't seem to dwindle; in fact it was the opposite. The Starblazers greatly outnumbered them and it wasn't getting any easier.
"Damn it all" Shining Armor said as he used his barrier spells to scoop up Starblazers and dump them somewhere. A few guards were getting overwhelmed by the amount of the creatures that piled onto them. Shining used a repulsion spell to remove the Starblazers from the guards. Then to their horror the

Applebloom was grinning ear to ear as she walked up to the Cutie Mark Crusader clubhouse. Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle were talking with Shadow, the sound of Applebloom entering caused them to stop and turn to greet her. Though they had arched brows at her still smiling face.
"What's got you so happy?" Scootaloo asked.
"Ya'll aren't gonna believe this, but mah sister has a date" she said.
"You mean like a romantic type of date?" Scoot asked, earning a happy nod from her.

The ring deposited the four of them in a mostly gray room with dim lighting. While Sonic retrieved the Warp Ring, Celestia lit up her horn to provide a little extra light. In front of her, she could see that the room split in two directions. She turned to Sonic a second later and asked, "Where are we?"
Sonic replied, "We're back inside the ARK, near the research area. I remember passing through a little bit of this section when I was up here with Shadow."
Sonic eyes moved in Dash's direction as he heard the pegasus groan. He walked over to a nearby wall and gently set her down, kneeling in front of her. Dash raised a hoof to her forehead as she moaned, "I have a headache."
Sonic snickered and said, "Well, after a crash like that, I can believe it."
He stood up and backed up a few steps as Rainbow climbed to her hooves, still using one hoof to rub her forehead. She lowered it a second later and looked around. "Hey, where'd that thing go? And where are we for that matter?" she asked.

Suddenly, the purple dragon yelled, "Hey, watch out!" Sonic looked to see the dragons scrambling off of each other and quickly spreading their wings and taking flight. Looking up, he saw why they were doing that: a stalagmite bigger than any of the ones on top of the lava had just broken off from the ceiling!
"Heads up, guys!" he yelled as he turned and started running towards them, not wanting to be near the stalagmite when it struck the lava. Everyone's eyes widened when they saw the stalagmite coming down, but Silver, Twilight, and Celestia quickly straightened up and, as the stalagmite fell, Silver held his hands up, channeling his psychic energy into them while both Twilight and Celestia's horns lit up with their magic, all three of them focusing on it.
The stalagmite was soon surrounded by an aura composed of green, magenta, and yellow, its descent beginning to slow as Twilight, Silver, and Celestia poured their energy into their auras. Before the stalagmite's tip could touch one

Shadow just rolled his eyes and Twilight gave both of them a questioning look. To answer it Shadow said, "Sir Lancelot was a knight from the story of King Arthur. When Sonic ended up getting transported into that book, apparently Sir Lancelot looked exactly like me."
"You've been inside books before?" Twilight asked Sonic.
"Yeah," Sonic said while rubbing his nose. "I got to run across the sands of the Arabian Nights and clash swords in an Arthurian Legend. It was pretty cool!"

"Well seeing as how we've got a lot of the day left. How about some training?" she asked with a hopeful look in her eyes.

He fired several smaller spears, all of which hit the beam and held it back for a moment, allowing Shadow to finish charging. He then leapt up as the beam broke through and fired a much larger Chaos Spear at her, which sent her flying back into the force field. As she fell to the ground, the force field finally gave way, shattering into pieces that disappeared as soon as they hit the ground.

"Those ponies weren't kidding when they said that those gems were unstable," the Draconequus notes amusedly as he uses his mismatched wings to lift himself from the ground and back to a standing position. "Oh, what fun this shall be, you'll surely make things much more interesting…"
The hedgehog remains silent as he advances upon the Draconequus, who lets out another amused snort. "What, you think you can take me on?" he asks sarcastically, taking on the form of a boxer standing in a boxing ring, throwing punches in the air. "I'd like to see you try."
