Sonic the Hedgehog is the main protagonist of the story called Sonic and Tails. Tails, a two-tailed fox, hence the name, is the deuteragonist of the story. It all starts with Sonic and Tails running in the forest and having a relaxing vacation on an average sunny day (Ordinary World). Until one day, Dr. Eggman, also known as Dr. Ivo Robotnik, the antagonist of this story, establishes a famine by stealing food and all of the precious gold rings scattered across South Island, the setting of the story, causing every living creature to starve and tremble in cold without shelter in order for Eggman to build his empire. So, Sonic and Tails decide to pursue Eggman and put an end to this horrendous famine settling across the island once and for all (Call to Adventure). However, Eggman shows up in his robot machine and kidnaps Tails, much to Sonic’s anger (Refusal of the Call). Suddenly, Sonic spots a magical fairy that had been following him the entire time. She helps Sonic rescue Tails by telling him that he has to collect 7 Chaos Emeralds in order to access the area where Tails is being held captive (Meeting the Mentor). However, Sonic also feels miserable for the other animals suffering from famine, leaving him indecisive whether to rescue Tails or take back the food and rings Eggman had stolen which commenced the famine. The fairy tells Sonic that he can both rescue Tails and cease the famine if he collects all 7 of the Chaos Emeralds, which are hidden in these secret areas called Special Stages. Sonic agrees and continues the adventure with the fairy (Crossing the Threshold). Sonic ventures through mysterious stages, defeating all of Eggman’s badniks, collecting 50 rings in each act in order to access the Special Stages to collect the Chaos Emeralds (Tests, Allies, Enemies). Sonic collects all of the 7 Chaos Emeralds and arrives at the ruined Death Egg where Tails is being held captive and all of the golden rings and food are concealed in (Approach). Sonic enters the room where Tails is being caged along with the food and rings. Eggman, shocked to see that Sonic has made it, enrages and challenges him to a battle. However, Sonic uses the Chaos Emeralds and transforms into Super Sonic and defeats Eggman in his massive robot machine. Thereafter, Sonic attempts to push Eggman into a burning furnace, killing him (Ordeal, Death, and Rebirth). Sonic rescues Tails and takes back all of the food and precious golden rings that were stolen, ending the famine for good (Reward, Seizing the Sword). Sonic and Tails return to the island in Tails’s plane with all the rings and food (The Road Back). All of the living creatures see Sonic and Tails in the sky with the food and gold rings and cheer on for them (Resurrection). Sonic and Tails announce that the famine is over and everyone can live on in peace forever and return all of the food and gold rings to everyone (Return with the Elixir).
