From Sonic Retro
In the Sonic games (specificly Sonic and the Secret Rings), the Arabian Nights is a fictional story within the fictional Sonic story itself; but nevertheless, Sonic still ends up adventuring there. After falling asleep while reading the book in the opening cutscene of Secret Rings, Sonic is contacted by Shahra, the Genie of the Ring, asking for the "Legendary Blue Hedgehog"'s help.
Erazor Djinn is running rampant within the storybook world, obliterating the tales of Arabian Nights and intending to break out into the real world. The Blue Blur agrees to help out, and Shahra transports them both into the world of the book. Areas visited by Sonic within the Arabian Nights include:
- Lost Prologue, a bizarre entrance to the storybook realm filled with swirling paper.
- Sand Oasis, the desert domain of King Shahryār. Nonetheless well-irrigated.
- Dinosaur Jungle, a lush rainforest filled with Jurassic plants and animals.
- Evil Foundry, smouldering medieval industry. The mechanical Ifrit Golem lies within.
- Levitated Ruin, an atmospheric level of towns built on the back of giant flying mantas.
- Pirate Storm, black and desolate coastlines patrolled by pirate galleons.
- Skeleton Dome, the dessicated boneyards of what were once King Solomon's mines.
- Night Palace, Erazor Djinn's opulent floating stronghold.
