On one occasion, seismic activity around the volcano was reaching a high point and Kordon summoned Sonic the Hedgehog to save their homes. Despite's Kordon's belief that the Gods were angry at them, Sonic and Tails discovered the problem to be thanks a Seismatron but could not defuse the situation. Instead, Super Sonic turned the molten lava from the eruption into a solid rock sculpture of himself, saving Kordon's people.
