Mad scientist [[BigBad Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik]] has a new plan to TakeOverTheWorld: launching a robot invasion on the earth, via his newly constructed super weapon, the [[KillSat Death Egg II]]. Fortunately, Sonic and Tails have built a one-seater rocket that will take them directly to the Death Egg II. There's just one problem -- it needs ''[[SeriesContinuityError eight]]'' Chaos Emeralds to power it. In an effort to claim the emeralds, a fighting tournament is started to determine who gets to fly the rocket.

Mad scientist [[BigBad Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik]] (or [[BlindIdiotTranslation Dr. Robotonic]], as it is humourously misspelled in the English opening) has a new plan to TakeOverTheWorld: launching a robot invasion on the earth, via his newly constructed super weapon, the [[KillSat Death Egg II]]. Fortunately, Sonic and Tails have built a one-seater rocket that will take them directly to the Death Egg II. There's just one problem -- it needs ''[[SeriesContinuityError eight]]'' Chaos Emeralds to power it. In an effort to claim the emeralds, a fighting tournament is started (that, and it's held to determine who gets to fly the rocket).

The game, made by Sega [=AM2=], is more-or-less a stripped-down and very goofy version of ''VideoGame/FightingVipers''. For years, it remained an obscurity; its main release being only in Japan while only getting a very limited overseas release. Fortunately, a direct home port of the game made it onto ''Sonic Gems Collection'' circa 2005. In late 2012, the game received an UpdatedRerelease on {{PlayStation Network}} and XboxLiveArcade with online play and a few of the DummiedOut characters including [[GuestFighter Honey the Cat]] and the playable bosses getting undummied for $5 as part of Sega's ''[=Model2=] Collection'' series of games.

Bean and Bark resurfaced in the cross-over fighting game, ''VideoGame/FightersMegamix'' as the sole playable ''Sonic'' characters before disappearing altogether.

* ExcusePlot: Let's not kid ourselves -- the plot makes no sense whatsoever when you try to analyze it. It's really just a way of giving Sonic and co. a reason to beat the living tar out of each other. To elaborate:
** First, why would a tiny one-seater rocket ship need ''eight'' Chaos Emeralds to power it?
** Second, in the supposed alternate story, why would they compete with each other for the emeralds instead of banding together to fight off Eggman's invasion?
** And third, why would Eggman self-destruct the Death Egg II just because Metal Sonic had been beaten?!

* TurnsRed: The game has a sort of "payback" system that causes damage to increase based on one character's remaining health relative to their opponent's. For example, if player 1 knocks off about 75% of player 2's health to start, player 2's attacks will be stronger and they can cut player 1's health down to half in as few as ''two hits'' depending on the character and attack used. It's meant to make comebacks more feasible and keep the dominant player on their toes.
** In a more typical example of the trope, Metal Sonic is known to do this as well; get his health down below 50% without getting hit and not only will he begin spamming his best moves, but his next attack can take your health down by about half in one hit.
