I tried reading that but the wall of text collapsed and injured me. Can you summarize in a couple sentences? - 7

Basically:

By story's end, only three Phantom Rubies still exist, the one in Infinite's chest, the Avatar's, and the original both were copies of, as Infinite explicitly destroyed the other prototypes onscreen. Eggman is using one of those in his mecha.

The Avatar's can't be it, as it's DNA locked to them and will only work for them.

The story does not even acknowledge Infinite's Phantom Ruby is not the original, and it's only DLC and expanded universe materials that explain it, as far as the main story is concerned, Infinite's Phantom Ruby is THE Phantom Ruby.

Immediately before, Infinite is teleported away against his will with Eggman acting smug about it. Eggman then shows up inside a mech powered by a Phantom Ruby.

The logical interpretation is it's Infinite's and Eggman performed a You Have Failed Me, but the other side of the edit war says it's 'too speculative' and has deleted every single edit pertaining to it. - 7

Edit warring and deleting YMMV items, outside of very specific criteria, is right out. Guy needs a tap.

This is what discussion pages are for. You can discuss the example there. - 7

I tried. I also tried P Ming him. He just kept copying and pasting his comments from deleting the entries. - 7

It's worth noting that the dudes deleting the entry are Sonic Sol Snake and Horus, our same friends from this other ATT query. - 7

Also, in the stage immediately following Infinite's defeat, Tails is tracking the Phantom Ruby. IE, you're following Infinite's Phantom Ruby signal, and it leads to Eggman's final mecha. So yes, the game all but says that the Phantom Ruby inside the Death Egg Robot is Infinite's. - 7
