Classic Tails hugging a lifeless Classic Sonic.
As Sonic and Tails raced through the abandoned Wood Zone, Dr.Eggman (or should I say Robotnik) appeared out of the trees alongside his creation, Metal Sonic. The blue hedgehog tried to take down his robotic counterpart, but he just wasn't quick enough. Sonic was defeated in a matter of minutes, and Tails watched as tears began to fall from his light blue eyes seeing his older brother gushing in blood. Both Eggman and Metal quickly escaped leaving the little fox crying by Sonic's body.
