Sonic the Hedgehog and Tails are flying above the skies of Mobius when they are caught in severely thick fog. Tails thinks it'll be incredibly difficult to land the bi-plane, but manages it anyway. Unfortunately, they don't seem to be on Mobius anymore. As Sonic goes for a look around, Tails thinks that this is worse than being in a maze. However, another glance shows that they are actually in a maze. Tails then remembers a story about a maze which housed a great bull monster. Sure enough, they end fighting a minotaur. Although Sonic beats it easily, the two heroes run off, Tails glad it's not a yeti they're fighting. As Sonic wonders quite where they'd find a yeti, his question is answered as they run out of maze into some mountains. In the snow, they are attacked by a yeti. Tails is terrified, but is glad he at least didn't bring his tribe. Just as he thinks that, the tribe turn up to attack. Annoyed, Sonic grabs Tails and heads off to a cave to hide and think. The pair wait inside and discuss all the screwy things that have been happening with monsters appearing just as Tails mentioned them. Tails reckons someone might have been listening to them, giving Sonic an idea. Throwing caution to the wind, Sonic leaps outside and yells to the sky, ordering someone to stop what they're doing.

Sure enough, a Tantaror appears, telling Sonic that he must do as he says. The aliens has been conjuring all the monsters, worrying Sonic and Tails greatly. Fortunately, the Tantaror's father arrives, berating his son for trying to keep pets. Before Sonic can argue about being someone's pet, he and Tails are returned to the Emerald Hill Zone. Sonic is keen to let nobody hear of the adventure, not wanting anyone to know somebody wanted to keep him as a pet.


  • The first line by the Tantaror father is adapted from a line in Monty Python's Life of Brian.


The previous Sonic the Hedgehog story was No Future. The next is Crisis in the Chemical Plant Zone.
