The story focuses on the three separate storylines of Sonic, Shadow and Silver which overlap at certain points then meet up at the end.

Sonic intervenes but is unable to prevent Eggman making off with Elise, but before she is kidnapped, she throws Sonic the emerald. Sonic then sets off to rescue her.

Meanwhile Shadow and Rouge are working together, having taken the Sceptre of Darkness, an artefact they stole from Eggman's base. But the pair accidentally drop the sceptre and release Mephiles the Dark who claims that Shadow sealed him within the sceptre 10 years previously then opens a wormhole, sending Shadow and Rouge into the future.

In the future, Blaze and Silver live in a post-apocalyptic time causes by something known as the Iblis Trigger. They run into Mephiles who tells them that the Iblis Trigger is actually Sonic, he then sends the pair into the past where they go after Sonic.
